"It is June 20 June 30th now. He was fired on June 29th. That just does not happen. He was fired. A 116 days after the end of their college hoop season. My opinion is it's ridiculous timing. I mean, most teams have their roster set by now. I don't think it's very fair to players who now have to decide do they want to play for, you know, rod Strickland or do they want transfer? Don't think it's fair to Kellogg who was, you know, he was fine as LIU's go to was 74 and 74. Was doing pretty well. Don't think it's fair for Strickland who takes over now, you know, in the summer months and has to kind of pick up the pieces at LIU just strange timing, strange circumstances all the way around. For those who maybe aren't familiar with Kellogg is a longtime assistant under Cal has been an LIU for several years now and seemed to be kind of heading in an okay direction. It's a tough job in general. I'm not sure what the expectations are at LIU, but yeah, I mean, the timing is just super weird and as you know, he was running a camp at LIU just a few days ago. That is pretty cutthroat from whoever made that decision and I'm kind of curious if there's more to this story than maybe we know. Well, I'm sure I'm sure there is. But my, and I've known DK forever. But you mentioned he's a longtime emphasis assistant. When I was the Memphis beat writer, he was on Cal staff. Played for Khaled UMass was on Cal staff at Memphis. I've known rod forever too. He was on staff at Memphis as well. So, you know, I know the characters in this story. And when I talk to people yesterday, you know, my fundamental stance, my basic stance on this is unless it is scandal related. And you feel like you have no choice but to make a move now. Fire a basketball coach at the collegiate level in late June is crazy. It's not good for anybody. I'd argue it's not fair. Because DK, he'll have a buyout and he's made some money and financially, I don't think he's got to worry about how he's going to pay his mortgage in 6 months, right? But assisted coaches at that level, they're not rich and they need jobs. And it's difficult to try to find a assisted coaching job at this point in the calendar. So unless it's scandal related, this is wrong. And I was told by multiple people I trust yesterday, it's not scandal related. I was like, you know, if you did something and I can't defend that and I was told by multiple people, this is not one of those scandals where they had to fire the coach now. It's not like that. And you know, I'll take those people at their word. Which means that I think this is a pretty embarrassing move by LIU. You know, if you want to fire Derek Kellogg in March, you know, I haven't thought about it enough to know whether that would be reasonable or not. But to do it in late June, if it's not scandal related it just seems like something that probably shouldn't have been done. And now you hope for DK and the people in a staff that they can land on their feet because it's much easier to land on your feet when you when you know you've been pushed out in March than it is when you are blindsided by this in late June because by all accounts they were blindsided abilities in late June. Not only was DK running camps earlier this week, he was literally tweeting pictures of him and campers. He was still very publicly acting as LIU's head coach and my understanding is had no real idea this was on the verge of happening. It's a pretty bizarre story. Like you said, I'm sure there's more to it. There's always more to everything, but unless it.

Derek Kellogg is out as I use coach after 5 seasons, gonna be replaced by rod Strickland, who had been running the G league ignite program. So the timing here is obviously odd. It's late June. This is not the time. You see a lot of college basketball coaches. Like maybe a random retirement or off to the NBA, but just we're firing our coach who like literally two days ago was running camps at LIU. So just a wild story. What did you make of this popping seemingly out of nowhere? Pretty stunning did not see this coming, did not think that Kellogg was on the hot seat. We don't typically see firings in the summer, much less late June, early July..

"Do think this is kind of the same recipe that got him here, which is, you know, he needs to not be. The best guy on his team, the leading shot taker on his team. He needs to be pushed and practiced. Maybe get overwhelmed a little bit in practice every once in a while. That's the way I could envision him getting better. Going to eastern Michigan and taking all the shots for a team that, you know, probably isn't going to win that much. Earlier in this off season, nobody base was quoted as saying the most important thing, quote, most important thing was that he wanted to win. And he just went to a program that hasn't had a winning record since 2018, had made the installation tournament since 1998. Finished outside of the top 300 at Ken pom this past season. And as of last night was two 62 at Bart torvik dot com. Like, this is probably not going to be a winning situation. And certainly not winning to any sort of notable degree at the college level. So going to a program where he's going to take all the shots, lose a lot. I hope I'm wrong. I'd love to be wrong. 'cause if I'm not wrong, this is one of the sad stories of how prospects go from one place to another. But I would have done something other than this. I think, although note, like we've noted, his options seem to have dwindled to almost nothing and eastern Michigan in recent weeks. It's a wild story. Because you don't see this happen. I mean, I think literally ever. A year after being named, the number one player in your class, nobody wants you. Yeah. I mean, that's where we're at. You know, you saw throughout this process, big names pop up, Louisville's involved, and Michigan's involved. And they just, they just took other people and it is being reported that if penny Hardaway would have taken him back, he would have just stayed at Memphis. He would have exited the transport and come back to Memphis. That is what multiple, you know, John Martin at the daily memphi and Mark giannotto at the commercial appeal. They have both reported that. And that penny, and I think the show is a little bit of a changing perspective from penny harda on penny Hardaway's part as well. Like penny since he became the Memphis coach has always wanted the shiniest things. Give me all the 5 stars I can get. And now he was like, rather than deal with Elgin Bates another year and try to turn amani Bates back into an NBA prospect. You know what? I'm a take a manual acop from Boise state. I'm going to take Kennedy from Utah. I mean, that is literally what they did. More or less decided, I'd rather have a manual a cot and chianti Kennedy than imani Bates. I'd rather have older guys who I know can play in college than I'd rather try, I'd rather focus on building a good college basketball team. Whatever that looks like, then having part of my job over the next year being turning a Monty Bates into what amani Bates was supposed to be. I'll let stay in heat do that. That's like really a decision penny Hardaway appears to have made. Yeah. Shout out to coach Hayes stinks for the question on the Patrick Baldwin. I think that's a great question. And shout out to in the chat, Jonathan phips, who is always very active member always commenting. Real quick on the Hastings, the Baldwin comp, but I don't think is even close to accurate. Baldwin, yes, they're both former number one recruits. But Baldwin had an injury early in his senior season completely derailed his senior year. Came back to Milwaukee with high expectations, obviously, was a 5 star committed in Milwaukee over duke. But never really dominated in a way that I think people expected a guy who had his pedigree his background would. That is similar, I think, to amani, but I still think you're part of Baldwin's problems was I'm not entirely sure he was healthy. He had an injury at the end of his freshman season, shut down. He really only played like basically it doesn't games. Kind of a mixed bag ended up being a first round pick. But I think most of the questions surrounding Baldwin are injury related. The questions with the money, I think the talent questions that how can he continue to develop. And right now, he's not at the point where I think he will be a first round pick. Now, again, we talked about this earlier. I think that could change. He'll need to show some market development over the next year at eastern Michigan, a place where I'm not entirely sure he can do that. But I think the situations are pretty different. I still do believe, though, that they could end up in a similar trajectory where if himani Bates has taken 27th next year in the NBA draft. That would not surprise me at all. And this should conclude 35 minute episodes of the on college basketball podcast on amani Bates. If we have another one of these, it means something has gone entirely, I think more wrong than right. That's the other thing about going to eastern Michigan. It's like, I can remember at one point last season. Patrick Baldwin is a prospect. Couldn't stop talking about him..

"Maybe he's got the back multiple times, but he's fumbled a situation to the point where he hasn't, I don't think put imani in the best situations. Now I think imani's development has really been hurt over the last few years. In part because of some of the decisions that he's made, and he has not quite developed in the same way, same trajectory, the same path to being a potential first round pick that lamella took. I think that's probably more testament to lamelo in his talent than it is to imani in the situation that he's faced, but yeah, I think it's fair to blame Elgin to some extent, but also just imani over the last few years had really plateaued was kind of riding high off the reputation and the fact that he won and done to Memphis and basically was not welcome back. I think it's not a surprise. I do want to ask a GP. I want to play a little game if you're open to it. I'm open to games, sure. Okay. This is called the Kevin Durant or imani Bates game. I looked up some scouting reports from high school. And I want you to tell me who wrote what the description is for each scouting report and who it is being named. So we'll go, this is the first one here. I'll give you an easy one. This is the first game I watched him as a tenth grader. He is turning into a man all caps man. Best prospect since LeBron and it ain't even close. I would say that was about Kevin Durant. That was about imani Bates. Okay, next one. A player X has already shown he can be consistently effective against the best players in this class using his versatility to contribute in other ways when his shot isn't falling, but it's unseen how his game will translate to college and eventually to the NBA. If he doesn't add some more bulk to his currently wired wireless frame. He would be best served to increase his strength heading into next year while developing some reliable back to the basket moves as well. That sounds like Kevin Durant. That is Kevin Durant. That's right. Next one, the best NBA prospect in the world, regardless of age, he's arguably the best NBA prospect I've ever evaluated. 6 9 handles it like a guard can pull up anywhere on the floor, has a star quality about him. A killer instinct. The kid has all the makings of a future number one pick, a franchise changing talent. That sounds like it's about a Monty phase. That is about imani Bates. I have several others here. Well, that's the point I was trying to make earlier, like the idea that. You know, I'm sure Michael Rosenberg hates the attention that that cover story now gets, but he wasn't out of line, he was in pretty in lockstep with the general, again, this wasn't a Michael Rosenberg evaluation. He was talking to college basketball coaches and NBA front office executives. This was largely what people thought amani Bates was. The next big thing. The best NBA prospect in the world, regardless of age. And keep in mind, less than a year ago. He was ranked number one in the class of 2022. That was less than a year ago. And when he got reclassified, he at 24/7 sports was slotted 5th behind only Chet holmgren polo vaquero shader sharp and Jaden hardy. Guys that were picked. First second 7th and somewhere in the 30s of last week's NBA draft. But I think not the first sign that there might be issues, but a sign that there would be issues was the Memphis pro day last year. I don't know if you remember this. He was terrible. I mean, not in terms of basketball stuff. I don't know. I didn't see that. But the measurements were bad. He has no wingspan. It was like, you know, 6 9 with a 6 9 wingspan. Which is not good. And I'm not even sure it was 6. Whatever it was, like it was his arms were notably not what you would want them to be. T. Rex arms. Yeah. He has T. Rex arms. And then the vertical was like 24 or 26. It was something that it was like he tested like a non athlete. And measured in a way you don't want wings to measure. And I think that really opened some eyes. And then when you combine that with the basketball stuff, look inefficient and overwhelming for him at Memphis, you get to a place where it is not guaranteed that he'll be picked in the 2023 NBA draft. I think most people, right now, having projected as a borderline, first round pick, where would you have him right now in next year's draft? At this point, I would not have him as a first round pick. I think it's one of the things I want to see it happen, I want to see him progress a little bit more before I have him as a first round pick. Wouldn't surprise me if he ended up as a first round pick next year. In fact, I think it's more likely than not that he ends up as a top 30 guy come next year, but at this point, I would not be, I would not be touching imani Bates unless I see some notable improvement. Yeah, that's where I'm at. We got someone in the comments, coach Hastings here on YouTube who said, how do you guys think this would compare to Patrick Baldwin going to Milwaukee? Obviously not entirely the same situation, but he'll have to dominate the Mac in order to be a top pick, right? I think this is very different than the Patrick Baldwin situation, because what NBA people looked at as it pertains to Patrick Baldwin's disastrous season at Milwaukee is it was just a disastrous season at Milwaukee under not great circumstances. We don't care. We're going to believe in what we saw when he was a standout high school prospect. Obviously, the season at Milwaukee, it mattered some because he went 28th instead of 8, but the Golden State Warriors at the very least just said, we're not worried about that. We're going to focus on we're going to evaluate him the same way that grizzlies evaluated ziya Williams the year before. We're not worried about the one year we believe in the talent. The problem for imani is if he has a disastrous year at eastern Michigan, whatever that looks like, that's too disastrous years of colic basketball. And at that point, it becomes nonsensical to evaluate him on what he was at peach jam, you know, years earlier. At that point, you've just watched this guy play two seasons of college basketball for different coaches, different leagues at different levels. And again, this is for the sake of the conversation, assuming, but this conversation, if he's not good, then that's like, he's just not good. You know, at that point, he's just not he's 6 9, you know, has some skill can make some shots, was really awesome when he was 15, but we watched him at 17 and 18 be a not good college basketball player. Then I think you're done as a draftable prospect. I still think there's a ceiling now on what he can become as a prospect. Like I don't think I could imagine him becoming a top 5 guy now, no matter what he does at eastern Michigan. And it's not that you can't evaluate players that that level, obviously you can. You know, Damian Lillard was evaluated at Weber state. John morant was evaluated at Murray state. These NBA front office executives are so good that they can find you literally anywhere. So it's not that we're playing against Mac players, won't give them the opportunity to prove that he's a legitimate NBA prospect. But.

"Memphis has doctors. You don't have to go to Michigan to go to the doctor. You know, when a player from Michigan goes to Kentucky and encounter some sort of medical issue, they just see the doctors in Kentucky. They don't say I gotta go home to Michigan. I'll see you guys when I see you guys. It was unusual. Weird. And I'm not insisting that he didn't have a that is back didn't hurt. Like everybody's back hurts. My back's hurting right now. Same. But I do not believe he missed more than a month of basketball with a back issue. I'd never believed it, then I don't believe it now. I believe more likely that his father was frustrated with how things were going. And they were on the verge of shutting it down for good. Now mighty did come back and play maybe three minutes against Boise state and the NCAA tournament, 12 more against Gonzaga. But he was never a part of the team anymore. And I think that had to do more with his father than his back. And the father is among the reasons none of these schools wanted him. This summer. I should say, being a father is difficult. And I'm sure Elgin Bates loves his son. And has been trying to do the right things by his son. Being a parent is complicated and I imagine he can't say for sure because this doesn't apply to me, but I imagine being the parent of the next big thing. And you got a million different things pulling you in different directions. I imagine that gets super complicated. So those are my disclaimers. But it is hard to refute the idea that he has mismanaged this at every turn. Since somebody Bates was labeled, the best 15 year old in the world. The prep school was a mistake. Building the grassroots team around him was a mistake. I think fast tracking him to Memphis certainly looks like a mistake. And the way he handled the whole situation, when amani was at Memphis, also a mistake. Causing scenes inside FedEx form at home games, literally yelling at the coaching staff in the middle of games. Like other high major coaches, juwan Howard, Kenny Payne, Tom izzo, like they watch this or heard about it, and we're like, I'm not getting involved in this. Like once upon a time you were willing to deal with Elgin Bates because the mighty Bates was this generational talent. Now he doesn't look like he's a generational talent and that's how you end up having your options dwindled and now you're playing at eastern Michigan. And it might go well. I hope it does. But it strikes me and I'd be interested to get your thoughts on this. It strikes me as falling under the umbrella. Same umbrella of what they've done every step of the way. Amani is going to have this whole program back home, built around him, where he's going to get all the shots and how is that going to be good for him? It hasn't been good for him in high school at the prep school. On a grassroots level, I thought if he could get in with G league ignite, be around pros and off the radar that would have been beneficial or go somewhere where you can have a strong coach, you're surrounded by comparable talent. And the coach has the power to say Elgin. Don't call me. Don't move here. Detach from your son and let me coach him. Now, maybe that option at the high major level just did not exist. But this is an eastern Michigan thing doesn't sound like it's the type of thing that rejuvenates his career in a way that puts him back in projected lotteries for the 2023 NBA draft. Yeah. And I think that's a very fair criticism. I would also add two. This is definitely partly just a talent problem. Take another prospect, for example, who had just a wild high school prospect trajectory. LaMelo Ball, his dad pulled him out of high school as a junior. He played overseas with Lithuania. Widely considered to be just a very strange decision because he was, as you know, he was really developing, I think at the time was a 5 star regroup. He was considered to be one of the top prospects at the high school level in his class, goes to Lithuania, isn't there very long he signs up with the Los Angeles ballers in the JBA, a professional league that was created by lavar ball. And still yet, he continues on. He goes to the elara hawks, plays in the NBL, and there is where he kind of really establishes himself as one of the bright young stars in college basketball. It was a strange path. People were questioning lavar ball at every turn, and I think rightfully so. Because it was a jarring path that was not a path that typical blue chip prospects take, but I think in the end, LaMelo Ball's talent won out his development won out, I don't know. Are we giving credit to lavar ball now for that? I've always and I don't want to get too off track here. But I've always thought the criticism of lavar ball, like levar ball is the worst dad ever. Like lavar ball raised three young men who were given who could have had athletic scholarships to play to go to college for free and two of them were top three picks in the NBA draft. Did levar ball make mistakes along the way? Sure. Did he behave in a way that I don't think I would have behaved? Of course. But largely speaking, when I look at levar Paul, what I always saw from the first day I met him. And I met him before anybody knew who he was. What I saw was a super involved father who loves his boys and spends every minute of free time trying to turn them into something he wanted them to be. And like, you know, that's way closer to data the year than worst father ever from my perspective. Yeah, I agree. I agree. And I'm certainly not criticizing levar. Although at the time, I think there was a lot of questions about what is lavar doing. He's ruining lamelo because it looked like the path was there for him to just be kind of take the traditional route, go through the high school ranks, be a 5 star recruit, go to UCLA where he was originally committed. Go on and be a top pick. And he turned himself into the number three pick. And on that, I guess I would argue, those are things I think levar probably mismanaged. I think a lot of that stuff was done incorrectly. But to your point, I think this is the point you're making. Lamelo was so talented. He just got, he just got there anyway. He was so talented, he just got there anyway. And it is possible, if not probable at this point, that amadi Bates just does not possess that same type of natural power. Yeah, that's exactly the point I'm making. It sounds like Bates has kind of fumbled the bag in several ways here. And maybe he hasn't literally fumbled the bag..

"It just stopped. Like, you're supposed to go from being the best 15 year old in the world to be in an even better version of yourself at 16. And it even better version of yourself at 17. But a variety of things, I think, contributed to his development just pausing. Some of it was the pandemic. You know, he lost a year in there, but everybody lost a year and there. And it didn't seem to hurt. Or Paulo Ben Caro or shady sharp or any of these other guys who were similarly talked about. You know, at comparable ages or at least, you know, before they entered college. So that's an explanation on some level, but you know, all of us endure the pandemic. And it didn't pause all basketball players development. I think the larger thing is what you know. They pulled him out of his high school. They built the prep school around them. And not only did they do that, they built a grassroots team around them. And I guess on some level the explanation for that could be what you noted, which is, hey, you won't be around comparable talent, but it'll be all about you. Maybe that played a role. I think it was probably profitable as well. I'm assuming that it was a profitable these decisions were profitable. I'm assuming that. I don't know that, but I'm assuming it. I've always assumed it. And when you did that, and by you, I mean Elgin Bates, amani Bates father, what you did is seems clear what the benefit of hindsight is really create situations. All year round throughout the high school season, then into the summer season that you created situations where he's not being pushed by comparable talent. He's not being coached by high level people and I don't care how talented you are if you're not, if you don't know how to push yourself and or you're not being pushed by other people, you start to flatten a little bit. And rather than by the way, this was clear. This was clear, but when we all got back to living relatively normal lives, and for these purposes, I mean, going back to peach jam, I'm watching high school prospects. I remember going to peach jam. I guess it was last summer. And the prevailing thought among coaches were like, man, amani Bates is not good. I remember seeing a PAC 12 coach, I was walking into the gym. He was walking out. It was one of those things. You know how it is. Hey, hey, good, hey, what's up? And I said, so I said, who you been watching? And he was like, I was in this gym. He goes, and I swear to God, this is exactly what he said next. Dude, amani Bates sucks. And I was like, what, I don't think he meant amadi Bates sucks, right? But he just meant like, that's not remember what he was. He don't look like that anymore. And it just rather than recognize this. As name image and likeness rights were becoming a reality for college athletes. His father, fast tracked it, presumably to cash in in real time. And reclassify and sent a 17 year old very thin young man to play at Memphis, even though it became clear, almost the moment he got on campus that he wasn't ready for that. And still penny Hardaway was trying to force it a little bit, because it's a money bait. 5 star freshmen, you know, projected lottery pick. We got to start and got to play him got to run things through him. But it became clear. Quickly, they're better without him. They went to a four game losing streak to Iowa state Georgia olmes Murray state. And there was a three game stretch where amani against oh miss Maurice state Alabama went 5 of 23 from the field in that stretch. And then he basically got benched in the second half of the Alabama game, like started the half. I don't remember the exact details, but like played four minutes, penny took him out and he never came back in the game. And they won the game. And this was a win over in Alabama team that I think had just beaten guns ago. And after that, his role didn't diminish like greatly, like he's still played, but he wasn't nearly as important to the process to what was happening as he was supposed to be when the season started. And then he gets this back injury. And this is interesting because you're right, that is what they called it. And if you read stories written over the past 24 hours, it's like missed 18 games with a back injury. Leading up to the back injury and for people not watching it live on YouTube, I'm using air quotes with back injury. Leading up to that, he was playing somewhere between 20 and 27 minutes per game. Literally nobody ever mentioned a back issue at all. How's the body filling? Always fine. Any issue? No. No issue. Nobody ever mentioned this. And then he had a back issue, not playing anymore, and.

"Of the week, I guess, is that amani Bates has found home, he's gonna be in eastern Michigan eagle. He's going home to insulin to play for Stan heath, largely because his options really dwindled to nearly nothing in recent weeks. Michigan didn't want him, and she didn't want him. People didn't want him. Reportedly, ahmadi Bates wanted to go at one point at the last minute, but far away also did not want him. As I wrote in a column that you can find at CBS sports dot com, it is a striking fall from prominence. Less than three years ago at the age of 15 amani Bates was on the cover of Sports Illustrated. The words next to his face were built for this. Underneath his chin and it's not a strong jaw like strong jaw, but you know, he has a chin. It read Michael, magic, Ron, and. He has written by Michael Rosenberg, a college just called imani bell. Competitive eastern Michigan where he needs a strong bounce back season after one disastrous year at Memphis to maybe compete for Mac player of the year's honors. So that's where we're at. Cowboy, what do you make of this amani Bates situation? How you go from being labeled the number one player in your class in 2022, then reclassifying to 2021 where you're still a top 5 prospect with the guy who went first in the 2021 NBA draft, second in the 2021 NBA draft and 7th in the 2021 NBA draft. And now you're basically being told by one high major after another, we don't want you. You should probably just go to eastern Michigan. Yeah, it's kind of a long path that imani has taken to get to this point going all the way from tracking to high school. He was pulled out of high school to play prep school. On a team that was built around him and I think ideally, I think the premise of that decision was, hey, the talent around you is not going to be super great, but you're going to be the feature spot. You're going to be the reason guys come to scout you. When they come to watch your games, they're going to only watch you. The talent surrounding him was not ideal. I think that ended up hurting him. Kevin flaherty, who writes for two, four 7, had noted to be yesterday. I think the decision to not play up was maybe questioned in grassroots circles because as you mentioned at the top, this is a guy who has been for years and years and years considered the number one talent, not just at his classification, but basically the best basketball prospect, regardless of age, and he continued to play basically at his level. He mostly played down the talent around him was not ideal, and then he goes and reclassifies plays at Memphis. Counting stats were okay, but he didn't look like the guy that I think people expected him, maybe to be as, you know, a 5 star recruit former number one recruit in his class and was running through the numbers with amani Bates and Memphis and adjusted team offensive efficiency with imani last season. This is per Evan Maya, who runs a great analytics website. This one O 9.9, that ranked 7th on Memphis team last season, adjusted team defensive efficiency with imani. Again, this is per Evan Maya 89.1. That ranked 8th on the team. And this is crazy. I don't know if you know this or not. You can actually sort Bart torvik data using different dates. Yeah. What? Crazy, crazy thing. I just realized this. So I'd like to trademark this is something new and profound. Memphis with imani last season, this was in games November 9th through January 27th. 66 at Bart torvik. Memphis went mania was out with basically a back injury. I think it was the reasoning that he was out games played. February 5th through March 13th, which is basically the end of the AAC tournament. Memphis ranked number 6 at Bart torvik. So I think the overwhelming data suggests that Memphis was a better team when imani Bates was not playing. And I think you can maybe say he's in over his head. He wasn't developmentally quite ready to contribute at a high level to a really good Memphis team that was clearly older. Outside of Jalen Durham, that was a pretty experienced college basketball team, but I think it's in a diamond overall of kind of where his game is at now. Clearly the options that he had when he hit the transfer portal, I think people expected he would land at a high major situation because teams typically want to bet on 5 star recruits who have that type of pedigree, but that was not the case. Sounds like the reports are that most of the high major programs interest kind of dried up. Now he lands with emu going back to his home state, I think it could be a good situation for him, but this is a guy who has to kind of rebuild himself, his confidence and his game. I still believe that he has NBA potential, but he's a long ways off from being kind of the prodigious talent that I think a lot of people expect if he was. Yeah, this is a story that still has to write an ending. The idea that it's over for amani Bates is crazy. I just wrote like 1200 words about him and nowhere in there. Do I insist the amani Bates as an NBA player storyline? Is dead. He can still get to where he always seemed destined to go. Although I do think it's reasonable to at this point assume he'll never be magic Michael or LeBron or anything like that. A lot of thoughts here, so bear with me. I tweeted the link to the column this morning. One of the comments in there was nothing's wrong with the Monte Bates. The real thing that's wrong is a media member identified him in properly three years ago and called him something he was never going to be. So a media member miss evaluated him. That's the only wrong thing with amani Bates. And to that, I would just say that's 100% wrong. That is not what happened. Michael Rosenberg didn't decide just all Willy nilly. I think that's 15 rolls. The next Michael Jordan LeBron James Magic Johnson. That was widely regarded as amani Bates reputation at the time. This isn't something where a guy at Sports Illustrated decided to write a story and everybody was like, this is crazy. Like if you just fundamentally think it's crazy to label 15 year olds that way, I hear you and maybe this will be a lesson for why we should never do it. Like no matter what a 15 year old looks like, we don't take it that far yet because remember amani Bates. Perhaps that will be the larger lesson from this. But at the time, there was nothing crazy about talking about amani Bates that way. There were tons of talent evaluators who said this is the best 15 year old I've ever seen. You know, in the story, a coach is quoted as saying, he's the best player I've ever seen. And another coach was like, yeah, I agree. You know, he was, he was, he looked the part. You know? He looked the part. And.

Not being a sellout, and we'll see how many people if they end up with over 100,000 or not. Because they were selling tickets yesterday. Probably still selling him right up to game time here, but, uh, Ohio State is, uh, sending a significant paycheck Oregon because of missing that game last year. And there's just no ability with the future schedules filled in for Ohio State to return that game. This was supposed to be a home and home series, so Ohio State I believe it's spending $3.5 million. Writing a paycheck to Oregon over their loss of not being able to play and host Ohio State last year. So this is a paycheck game for Oregon, In addition to a great opportunity International showdown Typically those Paycheck games are for the Tulsa is in the Akron's where you pay them to come in and play. But when you play a home at home, you're not doing that well this year because of the pandemic last year, Ohio State And Oregon agreed to that $3.5 million figures.

"It comes to maxon but wisconsin gonna get this back on track. I'm really when you look at it. Even as me. I was on penn state. And i thought they got fortunate. Wisconsin got inside the ten. I think twice maybe three times and made mistakes down there. Graham mertz to learn from that. And what better way to learn them. Face a mac defense. Another thing is eastern eastern michigan kind of plays like wisconsin in the mac. Well that worked. They have big ten wins over the past few years. They beat rutgers beat purdue they beat illinois wisconsin is like a mirror image of them in a way but at a much better level. I was gonna say their little brother and again is bad as grammar. It's lou the quarterbacks of the big ten have not been on spiring but in in this situation i think you nailed it. This is kind of a little brother. Big brother situation. Fortunately my power ratings. Have this genre sitting at twenty eight and a half. So i love the two and a half points of value. This is a game. Wisconsin unlike some other teams who maybe author dream crushed. They're going to they're going to cycle back circle back and they're going to absolutely pummeled. We we know the score right. We've seen this. It's like a seventy two to fourteen game lil little note. Eastern washington has michigan eastern michigan They have a beaten a big ten team three of the last four years. So you're not this big tent. I agree. I do think this is an. I was high in wisconsin. I thought they were going to win. But not cover against penn state. So i even was trash and was amazing game in ten years. What i think. Penn state exposed was that wisconsin has some issues in the secondary. The pets receivers were getting open deep. But i don't think he's. Michigan is the dream that jim leonard being super aggressive eastern michigan Two hundred twenty one yards on the ground last week. Now they gotta take on wisconsin fifty tune-up game. Who do they play last week. Called saint francis saint francis red flash and they used to different quarterbacks issue and bryant transferring in from cincinnati They're gonna have to make up their mind. The two quarterback system will not work against wisconsin. Again you can't if you need to run the ball to win the game. You're not going to run the ball in this. Wisconsin not against huge. Nc state the wolfpack head to starkville mississippi to square off against mississippi state and our boy coach leach mississippi state right now a two and a half point dog plus one twenty on the money line. Fifty five is the total. I mean mississippi state needed everything they had in that calvin squeeze out a win against easy and attack house now at sea state. They pass the eye test. They looked really good. Louisiana tech obviously had a bunch of time to prepare for the era kobe. You're on louisiana tech and the points didn't think it was going to get that close. I you know. I test tells me to load up on. Nc state however this to me is one of those games a road. Favourite coming into starkville. It's gonna be lit. I think the public's going to be all over. nc state. but i think mississippi state could be the play here. Kramer where you at. I'll let you go first. Because i know where kobe's going i think had we asked our friend alan over here. Yeah which team. He's going to need this weekend. it's going to be. Nc paused and said sorry. He's going to be missing sippy state by a mile already early indications heavy money coming in on nc state. They pass the eye test. Those uniforms uniforms are fire. This team. that's going very quickly gained some hype traction because they often have the recruiting talent to to kind of poke their head up and maybe threatened clemson as we pointed out. But you know who did they play last last week. South florida south. Florida south florida to the sec is a slight upgrade. And i think that's the difference here right. And what do we see in coach leach. Well they did win the game barely but they still won the game. They turn the ball over on shrek. May maybe if you look at the stat sheet. It's not quite the same picture. They they struggled in then. What happened those last twelve minutes. They unlocked it. So i'm not as worried. I do think this is a classic. Take two and a half lay the three and a half situation so you can take nc state all you want but when coach leach invites us down for game this fall all over the pack in week two. And you're going to be really embarrassed. Are you on the wolf pack. Yeah it just comes to talent down the talent it comes down to look. This is actually state rushing attacks on of a night. Ricky person junior they both play devon leary. Pick in that south for a game. But he's a veteran and health state. Clearly not where we want the least normally takes three years leach look at texas tech looking at washington state. He got that win. They got very fortunate to get that win and maybe they go bowl. I can't believe i've ever said that. Your thunder and lightning with the camera. Here hey coach lynch. I still believe i'm going. I'm going mississippi. State plus two and a half to me. It just screams situation right here. One team blows out their opponent week. One the other squeaks by with the victory the other opponents at home as a home dog and nc state coming in off a forty five point victory you could see them resting on their laurels and mississippi state coach. Leitch is going to have the players ears because beating louisiana tech. only by one is essentially losing. Sean you wanna the taste as the west virginia maryland game last week if you want to reference next up in the kobe dance six pack. We've got liberty lane five as they head down to troy alabama total sitting at sixty and a half kobe. What are you doing here. Mostly what my handicap is is one team has maliki willis one dozen but liberty liberty is on an insane again spread streak nine zero against spreading their last night coaching.

How 9/11 Set Robert Saleh on the Path to Coaching the New York Jets

"And how many years have you been covering this franchise. Pablo f govern the jets for thirty two years. Which is longer than any person in history that's deserves a purple heart or you know a trip to the insane asylum but yes. It's thirty two years. And so how. Many coaches coaches have you seen. Come through the new york jets in that time. Yeah it's funny because the other day w- before they introduced roberts sala. I went back and checked because we need covered. That long. And the jets chains coaches so often you lose track over over time. He ends well. Total man okay. So you're the perfect person to talk to today. Your latest piece rich is about number twelve robert sala and his decidedly unique journey to new york city and the nfl coaching ranks. So before we get into all of the football and there is so much there. Tell me a little bit about robert. Saleh's background where did he grow up in. What was his upbringing like. Robert grew up in dearborn michigan which is just outside of detroit. Most people know it as a home of ford motor company but it's also the largest percentage of arab americans in the country. He is the grandson of lebanese immigrant. Muslim neighborhood a very strong and closely knit neighborhood and football was a big part of it. At robert really has football in his family. His dad played at eastern michigan university. He was. I'm told a very good middle linebacker. In fact he had a tryout with the chicago bears uncles who played cousins. Who played his older brother. David played all at ford's in high school. You mentioned the solid name at forts in high school and there is a strong tradition. Some of the best players in the schools history are members of the family from an early age. When robert was a seven year old waterboy for his older brother's football team. Football has been a huge part of his life. The family's life very much part of his upbringing in dearborn michigan so robert is growing up in this lebanese-american muslim family in dearborn a football family. What kind of player was robert himself. Yeah very good player. A captain in highschool played two ways. He was a linebacker in a tight end and really good. I talked to his high school coach. Jeff sturdiness in. I asked him. I said what kind of player was robert. He said he was like all the other solids he can really hit. You actually wears a bracelet to this day on his on his wrist during games. It says extreme violence. So i guess we could describe him as a very physical player who was good enough to get a scholarship in northern michigan and he went on to become an all conference. Tight end in northern michigan fell was ever a serious option for him. But i would say you know a really good ice school football player who enjoyed a solid career. So if you're a football player with that decidedly unsubtle mission statement rich. What do you do after college. Robert went to the exact opposite spectrum of what that mission statement would be. I mean he goes to work behind a desk working a nine to five job in a very stuffy. Corporate office building in downtown detroit is a credit analyst for america bank putting his finance degree work. His brother david is in the financial world is well you know. He graduated with a finance degree. So this is just following in the footsteps of his family. You know his dad had some done. Some business work. His grandfather was actually owned his own furniture store in dearborn. So he's really robert. Sala is point in his life in the year. Two thousand just anna colleges just following in the footsteps of some of his other relatives.

So give us your Medicare number and your data firms what they're really trying to do in that situation, Capture your personal information so they can use it towards their benefit. Not you. Yours. The other ones that we're also seeing is that there's their advertising on social media, saying that you can get you can jump the line. There's one or they can send you the vaccine for 79 99. First of all, I don't know of any organization that is charging us for the vaccine. Your best That always is to start with your personal doctor. Let them know that you really want to get it because you want to make sure this also within what you should do for your own personal health. But after that, go and talk to your county health department find out where their vaccination clinics are going to be, but also recognized in light of the new shortage off available vaccines. These scammers, they're going to go on. Overdrive. So be aware it's just, you know, taking advantage. Of people is genuine fear and worries. Targeting those who are the most vulnerable. It's so sickening to me. There isn't a severe enough punishment for these people when they're caught, and I hope that every one of them are caught, But again, a reminder..

You're looking at a team that on the office of being They are absolute joy to watch. They share the basketball that constant movement. They have a post game. They can shoot the basketball. Um two of the things coming into the season. That kind of on my alertly were that of point guard and post player. And they have more than answered those questions. Uh, Hutchison Kid? Been tremendous. The little Guard Smith has been tremendous. Uh, the young man, the transfer from Wake Forest has he's basically Six starters. Um, so I mean, they are just Wrong all over the floor on the defensive end, Dennis They're not doing their playing solid. Man, two man team defense and every now and then you see, coach will Sprinkle in Ah little Zone press, but they're playing solid man to man. Everyone's talking helping movie.

Well, you're not seeing that you see the ball going from left side right side into the pope's out of the post and so Basically what is telling the defense you have to pick your poison? You have to make a decision. If we go in the post, and you don't double we're going to score. Get five. If you do double the one thing I've been very impressed about such a sin is his ability is a past. And to find open guy. He's very, very steel, so when the double does come to it Oh, he finds that open God and then on top of that they are making open shots. That's the biggest, you know, That's the biggest thing.

Paul Finebaum reacts to Michigan president's comments

"Was some very important news yesterday. Out of the University of Michigan where the President Dr Mark Schuessel? Who has an immunologist by training? Not The most common thing you see for a president a State University made a lot of news by tapping down some of the positivie about college football talking about how there would be no college football unless students were on campus. He referred to his training as a medical doctor. Phd In relation to doubting seriously that there could be college football fans in the stadiums and they also broke down the importance of college football but in the context of the University of Michigan overall. Dowse a little water on that as well saying that the university stand on its own. This comes in some contrast to what Jim told us last week on on get up when he said he would be okay with football. As long as he didn't he said he would. He would prefer fans but it would be okay without fans who better to talk to you than Giannis. Bacon was written callous books on the University of Michigan and certainly among the very leading experts in the world the on that subject John. Thank you Happy Memorial Day and first of all great to have you on with us and we hope you've been safe and well over these last couple of months Always a pleasure Paul and so far so good. The only we need is forty hours of daycare for weeks. My four and a half year old kid if you've got a babysitter send them up For All you've done for us I'll I'll give you some good recommendations Thank you. Let's talk about the this. I thought was a really fascinating comment first of all. Let's talk about President Schnitzel in terms of who is he what his credentials are then. They're incredible but have someone like that. Move into the presidency at school at the University of Michigan. Well his background is Brown University And California cal Berkeley so the pedigree and all that he's got a PhD in some former science probably immunology say as well as an MD. So you couldn't call them stupid He's probably also not the biggest football fan in the world. I think he probably loves the Brown model. Where you play. But it's not Nearly the importance as it is in the big ten or the SEC and so on But also knows where he is that Hundred Thousand People Disagree and they love it quite a bit so he is definitely on a high wire there But clearly his roles immunologist took over in his latest. Talk as you said if you days ago and I guess yesterday sorry And Yeah you say is very clear about this that if all the students aren't on campus. We're not going to have intercollegiate sports of any sort at least at Michigan which is not to say the big ten goes along with that or the rest of college athletics. But it's pretty hard back back down from that once you've said that and as you pointed out Paul that goes counter to what Jim Harbaugh said a few days earlier that he'll take football and almost any form Fans in the stands or not. Some graduated schedule some sort of Not Black or white but Modified approach would be fine with Jim. Which I'm sure is almost all major college football coach so I see a conflict there and I'm pretty sure I know who's going to win it. Yeah I mean there may be some school football coaches that have the clout to go head to head with the president. I doubt Jim Harbaugh wants to do that. Unless it's twenty minutes after beating. Ohio state I I I WANNA ask you. I WanNa ask you about about his comments about the budget. You know the school inside and now obviously I mean. I don't want to translate for him but he seemed to be saying that you know we we would this football but we're going on with or without it. Yeah and Miskin can right now Now the catch that is not all the big ten can goes out football Sunday. The MAC you can't. I mean look at Eastern Michigan Kent State places like that Miami of Ohio so the separation between haves and have-nots stronger not weaker. Now its biggest. Cost Ball is of course nationwide and gets all the attention at Michigan. The budget for the entire Athletic Department is around one hundred and eighty five million dollars which is almost doubled in ten years which says something right there and yet the budget for the whole university assist seven billion with a B. dollars so and half of that as a medical school on the health system so the football budget is big. It might beat us That's what they spend on rubber gloves at the hospital. So it's not that big a deal to the president. John you have a pretty good pulse on the The Michigan Fan base. I asked gently what has been the reaction about what the president said yesterday. Some folks feel yeah. Maybe there's mixed generous maybe it is It is going to be hard to argue though without students on campus having football. You're talking about exploiting the students who are in your student athletes who are not paid etc. I was become a hot button. Issue the last few years as it always should be I think That becomes greater when you're perhaps risking their health When you're not risking the other students health To play football. So that's one point of view. The flip side of course is that stadium is both the hold one hundred ten thousand people and if not for nothing of course so obviously people wanNA play football In any way she performed they possibly can Go Back Paul and nineteen eighteen when Michigan played the first game during the pandemic early October. And it flared up nationwide thereafter so they did not play again until November The team went five that your politics and on the big ten which counts as big ten champs and yes five Cowan as national champs. If only if only we're talking to John Bacon The New York Times bestselling author. He's written countless books on the University of Michigan. I WanNa take a break here because there are many issues beyond what the Michigan President feels. Although his comments probably going to be heard pretty loudly and other ivory towers around the country. I WanNa talk to John when we come back about what college football faces in trying to open up more comments from the esteemed author John U

Remaining College Football Bowl Games with the Most Entertainment Value

"We're gonna talk about the college bowl games because there were some this weekend. Yeah. You and the other five people that watched the ball games. I'd like to talk about what you saw. So what was your best and worst from the bowl games? We can and who won the Louisiana New Orleans. Jumble. Aia bowl. Wait. What Louisiana's you said? A lot of words Louisiana New Orleans jambalaya bowl. Well in the cure bowl. I think is what you're trying to inform. Tulane beat Louisiana forty-one twenty four, but they were a lot of turnovers caused by Louisiana fumbles. And they thought they were gonna come back. It was actually pretty close game. But to kind of spread kind of got away from them and they play excellent on the offense deciding came back from those turnovers. So they took that game. That was my only in my bowl picks. That was my only loss. I got each other, right? Like, I said I picked Utah state to beaten North Texas. A just man had on them fifty to thirteen at half. It was thirty eight to seven like this game was over by that point. And I pick Fresno state to go over Arizona state in Francis did win they were the ranked team going to that thirty one twenty. They played really well themselves state did not have their best wide receiver who declared for the draft. So we wasn't not playing this game. His his agent actually paid for him to fly to the bowl game. So he wants them play which was kinda cool Georgia Southern parallelly beat eastern Michigan twenty three twenty one. They play. It was twenty one to twenty. And then it was a going into like two minutes of the game. It was a two minute drill. Basically. They drove down the field. All right down the middle. Just getting twenty twenty art play. And they go to win the game. So that was fun to watch. I picked to win that too. And then Appalachian state against. Middle Tennessee State. But it was apple has been ranked in the AP poll knows them as the team that beat Michigan. But they were ranked this you're actually at twenty five and I picked him to win and they won against forty five thirteen. So I am five in one at the moment. Oh, well, that's so good doing great. But don't. So what's next on tap the next? Are we going to watch the tomorrow, we have a Alabama Birmingham against northern Illinois in the that? I think I'm gonna say here Bundy, Boca Raton bowl. Yes. It is the book Raton bowl. My god. These names I love him. I love these bowl games. Who'd you pick for that one? Let me check like oh picks. Actually, I will check. I have a live idea. Really? No, no, no. I I always saved. My so Frisco bowl. I oh. Well, since Birmingham, Alabama ram wasn't a school wasn't a football program. One point and then won their conference this year. I picked on to go over northern Illinois to to win the Booker Raton. Yes. And then I think Wednesday also there is a big state versus Ohio in the Frisco bowl, which I pick Senegal state to win. But Thursday's the real bowl game that everybody's excited about the band Marshall and self mowers gasp. Up south Florida versus Marshall hell is a Gasparilla bowl. Sounds like something from the eighteen hundreds. But I picked south Florida to win that one I had to pick an underdog in. Anyways fridays. Also, Toledo versus Florida international. We'll talk and. Gotta talk about Chris Boswell on this thirteen misfield goals. Searcy lucky to not be fired today. I think he's lucky that so many other kickers are so bad that he's still like stands above the rest though, like in terms of being bed. I Mason Crosby look like Robbie gold. You know, the thing with that. Is there are so many acres who have been playing absolutely terrible that he's just lucky if they were there weren't so many other terrible terrible kickers.
