"Lines golf course. You listen to the 15th Club with Ed Clements and Scotty Sayers. Thank you, Eric. We saw Eric yesterday at the first tee event. And Ben Clements, whose part of Eric Lopez is Teaching staff, among other things that he does around Austin at the Austin Junior Golf Academy. We are dirty Martens live getting ready for the U. T game. And Texas A and M. Ben has just scored finally to take the lead over Colorado. It's 97 now, pending the extra point. It only took 3.5 quarters has been getting the in zone. How about that? Scotty, who knew that losing your starting quarterback and bring in a freshman quarterback would What do you no good in college football, Even in the sec. What do you know about Calzada? Nothing. I know that he has had one before this game. He had one playing collegiate football. That was the last week when their starter went out for. I think he had a little bit of a Stinger for a play. He went in for one play through an interception. Has not seen the field since they brought him in today, and he's really struggled. It's interesting because he's a big guy 64 £225 and has a laser of an arm. I wouldn't be shocked if you through about 100 100 MPH in baseball, but He just doesn't seem comfortable. He obviously this is he's a freshman. This is his first experience in college football, so he is not handled it necessarily well against a lackluster Colorado team. But ain't M might find themselves really pulling. Pulling a fast one in Colorado here. So how much time is left? Scott you can see two minutes to 41 to 40 was kind of a garret Gilbert moment. It is in a way of a lot, a lot less riding on it. But yeah, but any any kind of away game when a freshman quarterback comes in whether it is against the Colorado or in Alabama? It is going to be an intense moment. It's going to be a lot of pressure, especially when both these teams they it's no home game for other team. They are in Denver and the Mojo Stadium but am just needs to hope that they hold on right now, and they can get away without a loss. Yeah, I'm not a big fan of neutral site games, except for Texas OU, which is a tradition that happens over and over again. But this is this is a bit unique. It's interesting because I think you know and In Boulder. Their stadium, I think holds around 45,000 people, and so they were expecting a much larger crowds, so they did move into my house stadium. But the mile high isn't even sold out. I wouldn't be shocked if they had More than 50,000 people at this game, So I guess in a way they were smart to move it, but it wasn't that necessary and I would have rather seen this game being played in Boulder when they have a true home field advantage, but all power to him. It's a fun stadium to watch Mile High Stadium. But Yeah, probably have. Thank you, sir. Yeah, And I'm not a big fan, either of the of the neutral sites I don't like when teams do that, Besides games like Texas, and oh, you and a few other games, But I'd like to see true home field advantage is that great? 15 clubs brought to you by ABC Bank and Capital Chevrolet, along with the Omni Barton Creek Resort.

"Yeah, with Qatar Airlines and Qatar actually sent teams of their own engineers into that airport in Kabul to get it working. Yes to get enough of the control system back in operational capability. To start resuming their flights in and out of Kabul because the U. S military destroyed a lot of the air traffic control systems. It just It doesn't make any sense. Why were these the same people that had a chartered flight waiting on them that the State Department has grounded and they were somehow, uh, trucked over to Kabul to catch this flight that that they then had to pay for to get out after we left them stranded and said, we will get you out. Many, many key questions still need to be an hope that there are Americans on that flight. And I hope when they get home, they start talking. Let's go to Philip 10 52. Welcome to Kehl, BJ. Good morning, Philip. Yeah. Good morning. You know we live in a world today. We live in a country today that you can be born a male and you can say I identify as a female. We have schools that are allowing boys to go into girls' restrooms. We have a lot of businesses that that flat gave up on it, and now they have a male female restroom or undecided or whatever. So my thought is If if you can identify as something you absolutely are not identified as a vaccinated person and identify as a person wearing a math. Do you work for the federal government? I do not. I fortunately worked for somebody who's level headed and and isn't putting mandate thought. Yeah, Got you, Philip. Thank you. You have a good one. We have a text here from a T s a officer that says, you know, when the buying administration came out this they were they gave us the option is about testing. And so we've been doing that We've had to master where the shield and they said, we've been dealing with Covid for the front line for two years. Why now is their question And, uh, the only answer I can give to that is what we just got finished talking about. It's a distraction from what has happened in Afghanistan. It is trying to persuade individuals that may have lost hope in the Biden administration due to all that has happened since he's taken office that this is the one thing they feel strongly May Uh, coerced them to come back to their side and and pump those numbers back up his polling numbers, the rising disapproval rates even among some Democrats. Now, according to the pollsters, Jerry's in East Austin. Hey, Jerry. Good morning. How are you? Good morning, and please correct me if I'm wrong. But isn't this vaccine classified as an emergency use vaccine because of covid and as soon as one of the therapeutics or one of these drugs like Hydroxychloroquine er or or Robert MC and or whatever it is, once it's proved that it cures covid, then that classification for the emergency use of the vaccine. Goes away, and then they can't force it on anybody. Well fighters no longer emergency approval. They got the full approval from the FDA. Moderna is putting in the paperwork. Seeking that full authorization. And as far as you saying, other remedies to cure, I'm going to say that they have not, definately said that there has been something that Quote unquote cures it, so that's why they're able to do that. The Austin City Council got an update yesterday on its plan to pick four homeless camps. Move the homeless out and put them in hotels. They call it the hell initiative and they got a briefing yesterday in the city staff said. We moved 147 homeless people out of four camps and move them into hotels. We still have 100 19 of those people living in the hotels at taxpayer expense. 22 of the homeless people got kicked out for bad behavior and they didn't go into details. They had a few that got arrested. Some have ended up being put into hospitals. But the city staff was taking about yesterday and saying Give us a pat on the back. We still have 119 living in hotels. Yeah, I was going to say And afterwards, they said Insert applause here. We've done such a fantastic job. Y'all told us to get these people off the streets Four months ago, we were able to get 119 successfully off temporarily. You really should be saying what a great job city of Austin How many empty rooms do we have? How many more encampments do we have out there where this campaign is still taking place? No, We're not supposed to ask those types of questions, but I'm going to guess it's more than 147 people. All right, we're going to come back to to four with Ed Clements, Clay and Buck are coming up.

"Back sports star Jason and Vito 83605 90 Final segment here, Guys see Cam Newton today, There's a scene in a different cam Newton do or die a different cam Newton is going to show up this season. I look at everybody has competition. You know what I'm saying? So you're talking to a competitor. I look at everything is competition. I look at last season's production is competition. So yeah. Take it personal. Yeah, I'll take it in a way that I know who I am, You know? At times I do remind myself people forget who you are and what you've done, so I'm not power. I'm in a position now where I need to be my best self, and there's really put up or shut up time you a free agent. It is put up or shut up time. Uh, yeah, he said when he's saying, Look at his competition. He's talking, of course about Mac Jones Patriots drafted in the first round there here specifically on that decision, and cheese is a person who has came on in. Hold on. Yep, he did it, Mac and cheese out that he did. It called him Mac and cheese back and cheese as a person who has came on into the locker room with the business of approached, doing the initiatives of learning his team. Is understanding that you know, I've got to raise my level of play from the collegiate level to the professional level, and I'm here for him and as well as he is here for me, just like stayed them, just like Brian Hoyer is no different. So when Mac was picked, you know, there was no type of gear wheel feelings, and still, no, it will films because competition brings out the best in everybody. Mac and cheese Mac and cheese as a person back and cheese. Alright. September 12th, the Patriots open at home versus the Miami football Dolphins, who is the quarterback for the My for the New England Patriots. Mac and cheese. I think it's Mac and cheese. I think it's Cam. Here. I think it's going to be Cam. Why? I think Mac and cheese is going to learn. I think Cam will be candid about the fifth game, Mac and not call him Mac and cheese. Okay, I'd like to attract my medication chasing white guy quarterback from Alabama. He Of the first round quarterbacks, which were there. Five of them, Uh, I'm probably the lowest on Mac Jones like long term, but he's probably the most NFL ready, right. I mean, went to college for four years. Under the tutelage of Steve Sarkeesian. It plays that pro style. Uh and so I think he's probably the most NFL ready and Cam Newton. Easily and won. The M V P has not been the same. He's hurt, okay. The dude busted up his shoulder and he can't throw anymore And you know, but I got I got some, uh, softball last night. By the way, Leaguers. How'd you do 12 82 for two sac fly double off the wall. I'm so fast now, guys, are you really went from first to third on the single right field? Wow. I didn't require oxygen immediately after you, but that's awesome. Thank you, man. I have. I think Trevor Lawrence is the most game ready. Of the first round draft quarterbacks, but we know he's going to Golden boy holding. I don't know how I did this. But my softball team has a weird that there's like three or four Patriots fans on my team. I have. So I hear Patriot stuff from them all The time, like can didn't have any receivers last year, and I'm like is that why he was bouncing it to him? Now that Nelson a color is there, he's going to throw it all the way to him. I mean, who cares who he was not Who he was throwing the ball in the dirt, too. And so you argue that I don't I didn't You know, Cam was once a great player, but I think he's the way he's played. He's banged up, and I think he's permanently permanently broken. And so yeah, look, you know, the one thing you can count on with the Patriots is Belichick is he's not playing any sort of narratives. He he'll film no pressure to play the kid because he's a first round pick or whatever. He's going to put out whoever is the best player and I think that's probably gonna be Mac Jones. But I think one I think he's going to put Cam out there because you don't want to put Mac Jones out there and have some bags for Jilly. See if that bad things happen in the first three or four games, and then you go. And if he was Trey Lance, I would understand that a dude who's you know, never played and played Division two and stuff like I mean, Mac Jones played quarterback at Alabama. Trey Lance is going to start by the way, and Ed Clements is going to drink a beer out of a shoe. Hashtag. Never forget. Do we really have that back? Oh, yeah. No, we Yeah, we do. I've got Jimmy Garoppolo. Yeah, And then the word you're going to drink a beer out of a shoe. I never said that video. You must have been high on they record everything around here and you know I on what? Ed Clements. I don't know life, okay? Was trying to look at the Patriots schedule. I gave you all my gummies, uh, really appreciate it. The, uh, usually sometimes you find that by week and you're like that's when the rookies going to start is after the bye week. The Patriots do not get a bye. Until the second weekend of December. I'll tell you I'll tell you this straight up. If they do start Cam, and he bounces it to receivers. Bill's not going to be like we just spent $250 million in the off season and free agency and going to play around with that. Even if he doesn't think, Max ready? I don't I don't think Cam would last An entire game. At that point, I mean, they benched him last year. They put Brian Hoyer in the game A couple of times. Yeah, Patriots, Mac and Cheese can't believe because let's not do that Mac and cheese as a person who it is not a person is a person. It's not. Oh, balls. It's a delicacy. It's one of my favorite side dishes. The NBA Finals two games apiece. Guys, We have a real series on her hand. Beato. You had the Sun's in five, which I believe I was so ready. There was just not like a mathematician. I don't think can happen anymore. Thank you, Jason, I I was like forecasting in my brain at moments watching that game last night sitting down smug Are you gonna smug af With a nice smile on my face. Sons of Kevin Booker, We're up the whole way. Yeah. Devin booker with their 42. I think last night dudes looking look, but when disaster in the bunch score 10 in a row with two minutes left, and Yannis has one of the greatest finals blocks ever, maybe.

"We also come back Live in local 2 to 4 every weekday afternoon with Ed Clements. Kenny Romeyer is filling in for the vacationing Melinda Brandt, Alyssa. Is producing and Tommy is in North Austin. Hey, Tommy. Good morning. Welcome. Hi, guys. Good morning. How are you doing, sir? Good. The University of Texas football team had a practice field. Can't sort of, but it was much more durable than a standard tent. And it was had to be kept inflated, but you could heat and cool that thing very easily. And in addition, they could put inexpensive cabins inside where the individuals had the sense of living in a house. It wouldn't have to be heated and cooled because the main unit would be heated and cooled. Tried this hotel thing in San Diego friend of mine said, And after a couple years, the hotels were completely trashed. I'm not surprised just a question of buying the hotel. The continuing maintenance and upkeep is insane. Yeah, That's not surprising. I believe it. I think San Francisco's running into the same thing with the hotels they're using out there. And they're also thinking Tommy about buying. Tiny homes and having the homeless live in tiny houses, tiny homes they say they could get some for $10,000 each and have the homeless liver knows that one of these sites That's basically what I'm suggesting, but without having a sewer facilities and so forth place where they can have a hot plate or whatever to cook a few meals and give them a little patch of dirt. Whatever you want to call it inside a tent. The problem is trying to heat and cool. One of those little tiny homes. They don't have any insulation whatsoever when they're that that cheap, Just the basic cabin shell of a small cabin runs that much. All right, Tommy. Thanks. You have a good one. This is all just appears to me Kenny as a stalling tactic. The City Council really does not want to comply with the orders they received from the voters on May 1st and they're drawing this out as long as possible is kind of interesting mark that we've seen just kind of a smattering of solutions and options in that wild City council is not around. To talk about him. It seems like ever since they've been gone. We've seen more stuff popping up in the news of of things that are happening. No solutions necessarily, but just options and we're sitting here trying to quantify him and put a pencil to him and and everything. We've come up with him what the caller said with the little tiny homes and what's been community first approach from day one right at a community First village. Let's go to Gary on K. L. B. J He's got some thoughts on the indictments. Related to the shooting downtown. Hey, Gary. Welcome. How are you doing Good, too quick comments, having been a former law enforcement officer and prosecuted The cases for murder. Let me read real quick section 19 Oh, two. It's very simple. A person commits an offensive he intentionally or knowingly causes death or Intends to cause serious bodily injury which causes death. What you have here is a sergeant turning a corner and all of a sudden in his mind. He wanted to kill someone. I don't think it meets the murder statute Plus The second thing, and I'll let you go. You have a district attorney that is now an activist district attorney. I watched a guy go to prison for 10 years. That didn't do what they said He did, because he was a constant, constant, constant problem. They sent him to prison for something he didn't Well, the the question of intent is right on the mark there, Gary and I don't see how he's going to convince a jury. The sergeant had the intent of killing that man at that point. It doesn't matter anymore in Travis County. What do you need to do is look at the district attorney quit looking at the sergeant. All right, Gary. Thanks. You have a good one. Well, and the D A made it very clear when he was campaigning. That he would be out of this mold of the other D A s funded by the George Soros organizations soft on crime. There are no criminals if they are charged. Society is at fault Society put them in that position. And I think our speculation on the show yesterday afternoon mark between you add and me that this d A. You know, the constitutional carry law passed here in Texas, and I think His office would like to send a signal. It says Just because the state gave you that opportunity, and that right You better not do anything with it? Because we're going to come after you If you do west Austin, Michael. Good morning. Welcome to K. L B J. How you doing, Michael? Good morning. Thanks for taking my call. Yes, sir. I have a question about potentially housing the homeless and I just haven't heard this as an option address that maybe I'm Maybe you can fill in the blanks. But about a year and a half. Two years ago, the city of Boston voted to close down for Central City. Older elementary schools. So these elements schools all have running water locker facilities. Different rooms. Of course. You know the gymnasium grounds, etcetera. Why can't these bees repurpose as temporary housing, but also solve some of the equity issues that people have regarding the distribution of the homeless camps throughout the community, And then nobody wants it. No, I mean, nobody idealizes. I want a homeless camp next door. But if we are going to spread it somebody, even they did it through in the community. Why not use these resources that Presumably, this city could buy from a I s D and repurpose them for the next You know, Perceivable future? Well, I think everything he says, plausible as far as the facilities and how they could accommodate And But I think the other thing you said, is how nobody wants him. I'm just guessing their approximate either location. In those neighborhoods. It's just a non starter. I'm just guessing. Yes, I understand that one. But we got to do something, you know? No, no, we do. The voters were very clear on May 1st. We may 1st think about that. Here we are now into July and the city has done nothing said about the City Council does dodging their responsibilities as usual on this topic. We were clear you're right now. Hey, have a great Fourth of July. Independence Day, Michael. Thank you. 51283605. 90 will have more on this story later this afternoon when Kenny and I come back with Ed Clements, but You need to know that America's largest teachers union is having its convention meeting right now, and they're going to take a vote. They are calling for mandatory vaccinations and testing for all of the students. Before the schools resume in the fold. They want to kill if you're tired of nutritional products that don't really work. I want you to go quantum. I do my wife does my son does we all take their outstanding supplements? They specialize in nutrition that really works..

Somebody asked earlier in the show about the All Star Game for MLB this year. Looks like they've moved it to Denver, the mile High City. Yeah, that was another stupid move by Major League Baseball player. Marijuana. Another stupid move by Major League based July 31st. MLB will host its All Star game in Denver and also news today. That Major league Baseball is going to issue a 10 game suspension for pitchers found with foreign substances on their fingers, and they're going to get checked twice a game. We got 51283605 90 to weigh in Rick in Cedar Park your thoughts. Hey, thank you guys for taking my car. I got a question you had mentioned think they know that, uh, the sun tan lotion or sunscreen mixed with that resin creates that sticky substance you're talking about. And does that mean If pictures are not going to be allowed to wear sun, tans, sunscreen or anything out there out in the seats are in the sun. And if I mean if they get if they can't Then I mean Get skin cancer. I mean, MLB is going to get sued. Exactly. Excellent point happened, You know. Excellent point. Strictly tanning oil and Pam. Yeah, they can use like I love how you just take it to like, level 12 right out. Are you an attorney? Are you looking to? Uh, I want to be okay. But you play one on the radio. What are your thoughts on that, though? Should MLB be? Are you a baseball fans? Should they be breaking down on these A tacky substances that pictures are Taking advantage of these days. I'm becoming more of a fan as my 11 year old is getting into playing little league, So I think anything that would give him an advantage. Go for it. Well, Rick sunscreen, lotion and resin. There you go. Learn something new every day. Look, his 11 year olds going to start to get recruiting because Dad's concoction add Ben, You're yesterday You said you had three picks that were total locks. One of them was, you know, college baseball, but you also thought that Mississippi state was going to be wearing their black Nazis. And you thought they might die from sunstroke. You pick Notre Dame, one of it. Dame lost. I muffed up Now You're one. You're one pick up your one. Pick the the Hawks. What a comeback. 18 points. Come back. I saw it coming all along. I knew it. I knew it when they were down. 18. Were you sweating? No, no, no. I was already popping the champagne thing. And here we go, boys. Here comes straight, Young. Yeah. But then, during the jazz game that was surprised I was sweating. I was biting my lip. I don't know if you can see my bottom lip as a cutting it because the entire game I just kept Chop into the bid for them to make a run. And I thought your dad was trying to teach you a lesson. No. Okay. They did not Tom Brady Father's situation. They never had that run, Did they? They know they couldn't do it. They kept trying to pop to that bubble and and Kwai between post arising The jazz and knocking down every 15 footer and and range. They couldn't stop him. Yeah, well, both of them both of those series 70. Sixers, Hawks Jazz Clippers now tied up to two big game tonight. Yes, that's also series is tied Big Game five Milwaukee bucks at the Brooklyn Nets. I don't know if you've been paying attention to the T V or not Ben Clements. I don't know if you've already placed your bets. But the news is, you said, Will this be a Kevin Durant Legacy game, Having to take his team on on his shoulders and win without his his fellow to from the Big Three, Kyrie rolled his ankle, Harden was having issues with his hamstring. James Harden. Cleared to play tonight. Does that change any of your thoughts? No. I mean, Kevin Durant. Still, they say he has to put on the game. This live tonight. This is a legacy type game. This is a Oh, he can do it on his own. Against the honest against one of the best players will be seen in the last 20 years. He has to put up so right now he's over under his 34 a half points. Wow. Take that pick because if they win, take that over because the only way they win is if he puts on at least 40 points. If he does not do that, they will get blown out tonight. He needs a little help from Blake Griffin and maybe DeAndre Jordan. But aside from that they have no chance of Kevin Durant is not put on a all time game tonight and Ed, it's not a guarantee that James Harden even place He's going to be working out in the pre game rituals. They're testing that hamstring your thoughts on nets books. Tonight. If I think it's it's going to be very much worth watching for what Ben just said. This could be one of those games one of the games that you think about when Magic Johnson played for the Lakers many years ago, and it was ill led the Lakers to an NBA champion Willis Reed limps on the court for the New York Necked and now Katie Kevin Durant, when all his teammates Kyrie and maybe hard and gone To lead this team to victory. I think it's going to be terrific theater tonight, but I think Katie is, Ben said. It's got to have the big game. Hey, anything when the Nets are playing at home? And I like the home team, usually in the playoffs, So the I like the home team in this. The flip side, though, is I mean, the blueprint is out for the bucks. If you can shut down Kevin Durant, you win every game nine times out of 10. That makes no sense. But my amount is not exactly correct. But P. J. Tucker will be all over Kevin Durant because Who else do they go to his head? Apparently, Who else do they go to? I hate seeing like you said yesterday. Longhorn Longhorn crime, but P. J. Tucker when he's in his face. Basically making out with the guy Kevin Durant can't score in. The Nets can't win. Ed Clements can if he's by himself, Lifetime Longhorn Kevin Durant do that. Put that team on his shoulders, score 45 50 points and lead the Nets to a decisive game five victory tonight. I think he can. I really do think he can because but Blake Griffin has to perform his over others, 10 half points and he's got to perform got He's got to hit that over. He really does, But no, they.

"To 11 every weekday morning and we come back 2 to 4 with Ed Clements each weekday afternoon. We're talking about Governor Abbott's announcement yesterday, The Texas will build its own border barrier slash wall. And we'll have a state law enforcement began arresting illegal immigrants on trespassing charges. Prosecute them and put them behind bars. And Sarah is on. I 35 Sarah. Good morning. How are you doing today? Good morning. I'm good. Um, my husband actually works for DPS. So I'm all about them sending down as you know, more overtime for our family, But I just thought it was funny. We were watching Fox News last night, and Governor Abbott was on Laura Ingraham and of course, made this amount match. But just as you guys were talking about it, I'm headed north to Dallas for the weekend, and I saw a big sign billboard with Donna. Fine. Of course, you know, is now running against David for governor in the next election, but it's all black and it's just him standing there, you know, with his sleeves rolled up over a desk all blacked out, and it's that finished the wall real big in red letters, so I'm sure that Governor Abbott You know, using this surprise and out as kind of a political tool, like OK, I know how fine coming after this. It's going to be a play point. So if I can get this, then quickly, then hopefully, you know, maybe get it done before the big elections come up, So I just thought it was, ironically, all we're talking about it right as I was driving underneath that That's not Yeah, I have no doubt. I think every politician every decision they make is always In the back of their mind, maybe even the forefront of their mind. What does this do for my political career? How can I take a dig at an opponent or or get ahead of them? So I have no doubt that this is one of those decisions as well. But when you look at the decision, it has implications of being great for taxes if he is able to put it up and and do it and be able to accomplish it. Without, um, it being tied up in the court systems or whatever. I think it would be great for Texas. It's just how all the all the little find finite details that have to go into place to make it happen. Yeah, again, you know, with this political season kind of ramping up in all of these, um, you know Republicans coming in to challenge him, Um, he's going to make a big play and Figure out the details as he goes along. I think he's anticipating and counting on Biden filing lawsuits to block all of this, and he will be quite pleased to say I'm trying to protect Texas. But Biden won't let me We're going to keep fighting and get it done. So he when he views this, he's a winner. Either way, we finished the barrier or he's tied up in court with Biden and he's battling with Biden. So it's a It's a winning issue on the political side for Abbott. Absolutely. Absolutely. Thanks, guys. Thanks, Sarah. Have a great weekend in Dallas. All right, 51283605 90. You can call you can text with your thoughts. Governor. Abbott says he will give details next week on his plan to finish the border wall slash barrier down there. On the border. Speaking of Dallas, the school board in Dallas Is about to embark on a program that they say is the first of its kind in the state of Texas. They're going to have a new Conduct policy and they're going to make it very, very difficult for kids to get suspended. In the Dallas public schools, Whether it's in school suspension or out of school suspension, they're going to just about totally eliminate those types of suspensions for bad behavior. Yeah, they're calling these. Um I guess new behavior. Uh, Reset centers. So what they're going to do is they're going to set up classrooms that have things like flexible seating. Um, they will have restorative circles, calming colors, mood meters fidget and sensory tools. So when a child I guess, acts out or gets into severe disciplinary problems there that would normally have them suspended. They're going to be sent to the centers where they will be talking with counselors. But also having to do their schoolwork. I don't know when I was reading about what all is going to be in this room. It is horrible for me to say this and go to the bad side immediately. But some kids may want to be in this room instead of a classroom among all the other kids, and they may act out intentionally just to go there. I I think you're right. That's not that out of bounds and you're thinking because it says only severe misconduct. Will have someone eligible to be suspended that's suspended and go home or expelled. And here are the two things they mention possession of illegal drugs or making a terroristic threat. Those are the examples of severe misconduct. That will end up with that student being sent home or totally expelled from the Dallas public schools. I wonder. On a percentage basis. How many of their previous suspensions were for those two things? I'm going to guess It's probably a small number that we're for those two things, which means there's a broader scope of discipline problems that are going on that we usually would be suspended and in this case will not I'm thinking about fight fighting. If you are involved or attack, another student in the hallway or in the classroom, Um, back in my day that would get that would land you either and in school or out of school suspension? Um so Do they then take those people and put them in these reset centers. That's the impression I get. Yes, you'll go to the pink room with the very soothing music and the anxiety meter and your harm chance for an hour..

"We just have, like, plans, toe literally grill and drink and hang out with the families safely on the entire day in the backyard with girls. Okay, here are a couple of actual projects you can wager on which coaches nostrils. Will be seen first during the game. Now, this is basically Jon Gruden. Bruce Arians. Andy Reid, Your only options here and you have to. Basically this is a you know, questioning who has the best mask practices. Because you know you who is going to have to pull the mask down. And since both of them have been triple masks, sometimes double masks with the face shield, sometimes just with the face shield. This is why I'm going. Andy Reid is because since I don't know when it will remember it was week one that opening night where he was all fogged up in the face shield e feel like it's it's been since September, maybe October, since I actually even saw Andy Reid's nationals because he's usually he's gotten real good at that mask. Doesn't it? Sometimes, I guess maybe it's chewing gum in there. I don't know that he doesn't just have like a little mini corn cob that he's working under that mask. He's always chewing always, too. And under there, I feel like bigger mass. I think he's he's much more buttoned up on his mass game than Bruce Arians is so I'm gonna I'm gonna go with him on that one. I think he's a darling of the media. He's a darling of CBS Fox s. Oh, no. Excuse me, CBS. So I think you'll he'll be the first one. We see definitely. But we won't see his nostrils because we'll see areas first. I think I think areas because he might just go with the straight face shield. Yeah, alright, this one. This one's kind of complicated, but here's my lock of the day, which will be higher. Brady's passing yards or Ed Clements at Clement's or you Game stops. Stock closing price off early day, Okay?

So you gotta bet 350 to 100 bucks, But this is this free money. James, Stop! It's over, Man! You guys missed your game. Stop window, right thoughts and prayers. Everybody who it closed it now Name Stop it closed at 92 today. I mean free money. Unless are they going back to the moon? Can you send it to the moon again? It seems like you've already been to the moon once you should let somebody else go to them. But now I don't know. All right. That was more fun Profit. I like I'm taking.

People would have been Crenshaw Club. What are we doing here? I had a club that bench Crenshaw gave to me during a round of golf because I said, Man that looks good. Can I hit it? I just had it great, And he said, Well, I'm not using it that much, not using it tournaments anymore. You can have it. So I use that use that club for a while and I got a newer club and put it in my truck and Nobita likes golf golf. Us said. Hey, why don't you have this golf club and you can tell it's a Ben Crenshaw club because of that grip, Vito it's a professional grip. It's a he did that himself. He does always ripping. So that's kind of the story behind that. What? What club? Is it? What is it, you little utility right? And you're telling me? Yeah, it's an Adam's utility. He got from Adam's golf. My old man said, I'm gonna I'm gonna take this out instead of my three. Today is what he said. Does that make sense to you at Clement's?

Alright clubs that gave you how many people listening right now are like I gotta Ben Crenshaw Club for med close. How many stories like this, You know, knowing my mom, I should probably check eBay and see if there's a bench. Crenshaw hand wrapped a guy utility club on there right now, and he really used in tournaments do that's kind of cool because they didn't use it. Use it in tournaments before he gave it to me, and I gave it to be Vito. Thanks for making their day. I love you. Well, I'm glad.

Take deep analysis. It was good. It was good. There's a good side. They're jumping your line, but I could only imagine that that's what she'd say. I mean, that's what I said yesterday. It is like this Baylor team doesn't make any mistakes. So every time you know, Texas fell behind early and then came out and put it on a big run at the start of the second half, and you're like, Oh, okay, Here's some hope, and I'm glad that happened at least kept kept me. Did you know tuned until the end? But they just don't give you the chance because they don't make any mistakes. Can I jump in with a bailer like compliment here from the sports enthusiast of me? I would love to sit in because I loved practice, no matter what it was because they always say, practice how you play well to me. I was always playing if that makes sense. So even practice was like intense or like enjoyable to me, whether it be hockey baseball. Tennis, Whatever. I'd love to sit in on one of those Baylor practices because how they perform is so machine like is crazy. It's not like they're they're put up there with the UNLV team and everything. That was a different style of play. That's how you go down to like Givens or something and just get it on with with with some really talented players. These guys do it, and they don't stop. I would love to sit in on one of those Baylor practice. The only time I would go to Waco, you guys Never seen a team that could pass the more more beautifully ladies. Pass the ball. Pass the ball.

He works directly with the Patrick Mahomes. I'd say his resume is worth taking a chance on Over the second 32nd ranked passing offensive passing game coordinator out of Baltimore. I this this guy? I know that Dave Kelly, maybe a really nice guy, but This is not this is this. This reminds me of someone in a in a job where it's not about your marriage. It's just we've been there a long time. Okay? You move up. You get this. You move up the ladder. Because he's been he's been a little 27 years, and that's what here. Let me read you the quote John Harbaugh, who was his head coach, and they worked under this year. Quote David is just a genuine guy. He will be who he is every day. He will be who he is Everything Okay? Has been that guy every day of his career. I'm thrilled for them. Great person genuine, full of energy. Hold on. Is there an ass tricks and says, like something, except for full moons? No, And he might go through the change and like to dunk basketballs and right state boards on top of vans. If you get team Wolf, I'd say get him to Houston that being on that hire Andy Reid, who David Collie was one of his former assistants, Andy Reid at the same time, saying he was disappointed that nobody hired Eric the enemy. Said. Quote David will do a good job. He's a people person. He'll bring energy to the building, one of the most loyal guys I've ever been around. He's a great person. We were together 18 years We had a few cheeseburgers together, end quote, he said. We had a few cheeseburgers together. All of those sitting everything you're saying they're at is like this. It seems that this is just a dude. Everybody likes. Let's get him a job, not nothing about his coaching. You say he's got a lot of energy. He's loyal He's a genuine guy. All of those things had a couple burgers with him. Yeah. Got cheeseburgers, but is there? I mean, I don't think I'm not that I know. Is there something about Eric? The enemy that has now for two straight? He, you know he interviewed in the season previous the coaching hiring cycle there as well. So you could say three straight off seasons. He's been up for interviews and nobody has employed him. Is there something we don't see about this guy? Um, I think that it's just there are NFL decision makers who are incompetent all over the league. Like Look at what has happened with the Houston Texans and how they have landed here. I am not surprised that they hired the wrong guy, right? Doesn't shock me at all. So Question. Jason. Do you have another whack e prop bet coming up to the Oh, yeah. Oh, yeah. Prop bet 5 30.

When did you said two hippies ran onto the failed and she'll come to her false. That was you at clinics who ran out onto the field to congratulate. Ironically, it was the guy I used to coach for the Texas Rangers. Tom House. Tom House is the guy that ran on the field. Once a Tom House got the ball. I don't know who those guys want to feel. But house got the ball in the bullpen. I was just going to say everything. Maybe Noah and I were talking about this off here yesterday. So like Ed climate seems to have a nugget for everything. And we're like, Is he making these up? How can he have a thing on? He knows a guy who was there or the never Tom house about the ball. He was. He was a relief pitcher.

In San Marcus, watching that with about 25 other guys and exotic dancer, and it was a big old party and I remember five guys, one dancer, Al down, down and throwing that pitch.

You passed it 86 rest in peace. Hank Aaron. You know, yesterday, I was saying Put Roger Clemens in the Hall of Fame. Yeah, he did Steroids. I guess I should say Barry Bonds probably is the all time leader in home runs. But man, did he did He do a lot of steroids, Barry Bonds. Went from zero to a to excel. Yeah, like, isn't he was neck on neck on neck, forehead muscles. How do you get the same with Maguire? Man? That was just Maguire. Oh, my God. She just ballooned up.

He also like you because you are radio professional monitored by the FCC. Philip Rivers, just a man of faith. Don't say bad words. Dad. Gum it. All right. That annoys the stew out of him. We're seeing that No. Two hot, my old English teacher in middle school. That was her curse word when she would get upset. Okay, Pot looks like the way it played. I like his fire. This just like beer. There was like it's funny because there was just too attached. T. Rowe, Mo in the letdowns because of the Cowboys, so it's more on him.

Certainly, I mean there Philip Rivers he's got. He had a LaDainian Tomlinson in the back. Look back field for a while throwing to Antonio Gates. On the Chargers T. Oh, yeah, I wouldn't say either of them were necessary necessarily outfitted. And in fact, I would say talent wise, I think Rome. Oh, is clearly better. Obviously, Justice should be factored in that Rome. Oh, couldn't stay healthy. And Philip Rivers basically never missed a game and rivers is going to the Hall of Fame and Tony Snow. Whoa, Yeah. Whoa! Yes. What? The child rearing home. No, no, no. Tony Roma is going to the Hall of Fame in broadcasting. Ed Clements. You better watch your silly I will walk across town find, you know, I'm not knocking Tony. I'm just make the comment. Look at Philips Raw numbers. That's why he's gonna get in the Hall of Fame. And Tony's probably getting in the Hall of Fame because he's a nice guy, and he's a great broadcaster. Both going to the Hall of Fame. And now, probably here. I want to read you the statement that Philip Rivers put out here because I like that he went from like there was a time where he might have been my least favorite player just cause he's always running his mouth and I don't know what flipped. But just one day I think it was. He was on the set, postgame somebody and he's wearing a bolo tie. And I was like, You know what? This guy's just fun. I like this guy. He's simbolo tied. That's what Okay and Philip Rivers. I put out a statement today every year January 20th is a special emotional day. It's ST Sebastian's Feast Day.

I love the pictures from your You're Gilligan's Island 10 10 Day cruise in a while. That was fantastic. Had had a great time. A refreshing break, and it's good to be back with you guys ate 3605 90. That is my long term Long term broadcast mentor the great at Clement's. How are you at Happy New Year? What's going on, buddy? Happy New Year to you. I tell you what, this weather I played golf Saturday and Sunday had a good walk today. A love love the weather. But, man Oh, man, Do you think we have anything to talk about today, Jason? Anything at all from the college level to the pro level to college basketball. There's not anything to talk about. First of all, say what up to our guy Beato, who's out this week? Because we're committed to making sure that the full show is never here all in one place Once again. It's really a safety protocol. And this is still covert, delicate time. As long as we keep the three of a separate then there's no way it can wipe out the entire show. That is. How was your covert pro? To call on the island of value. How was that? That was that I'll have you know, and that I was. I was tested as everybody is before they enter the island of Hawaii. Negative four for four on negative tests for your boy on then I enjoyed a week, two weeks in paradise without in in a state that has not riddled with coronavirus like this one, so I know there's some people out there shaming me. Go ahead. Shame away. But, yeah, As I had mentioned plenty to get to on the program today, the NFL season is officially the regular season. Officially in the books. Cowboys had a chance to make the playoffs on Sunday. Spoiler alert They didn't make it didn't do it. I will get to that, where the Eagles tanking on Sunday night football that was despicable. That was totally this spectacle and Shaka Smart's Longhorns are flipping Top five team. We'll We'll get to all of that on the program, but of course, of course, our first story of 2021. The Longhorns have a new football coach Steve Sarkeesian, currently the offensive coordinator at Alabama will take over for the surprise fired Tom Herman. We're gonna break this down, rip this open from top to bottom, but the announcement was made early Saturday. Ed Clements your initial reaction. Steve Sarkisian, next coach at Texas Well, Yeah. Starts mint. Well, can I start at at about 10 20 on Saturday morning when I'm enjoying a breakfast taco and son Ben calls me from the road and said Tom Herman just got fired. You know, you could have knocked me down with a feather. First of all, I was exceedingly surprised that he got fired of the other morning the day after what we have when it would Saturday. I was shocked because Krystal contact had led us to believe he was going to be the coach in 2021 Crystal cont a talk to the to the new recruits and said, Hey, Tom, Herman is going to be your coach. Don't worry. Don't worry. And then Tom Herman goes out and the team blows the doors off Colorado, maybe maybe his best win in Texas. Yeah, maybe his best best win it Texas and I thought I thought Thomas secure for another year. We saw a glimpse of be John and Casey Thompson and over shown on defense. I thought, well, this is You know, let's get it done. Let's let's just get it done. But Wow, I was absolutely shocked about that. And then let me just say I was doubly shocked. Five hours later, when Steve Sarkisian got the job as head coach of the University of Texas, I was Flabbergasted about that decision. I am shocked at that decision. Let me let me preface. I wish him well, I wish him well, but I'm scratching my head over this higher. Steve Sarkisian is an excellent play caller for Alabama. But Jason, you and I and Vito could call place for Alabama with the players they have. Let's be brutally honest. Steve Sarkisian was an average head coach at Washington. He got fired for drinking at USC, and then he's been under the arms of Nick Saban. Ever since he was he was in Atlanta for two years as a ineffective offensive play caller on end of offensive coordinator So he gets this job and I'm a first inclination was y Steve Sarkisian. But I think I know why we could get in later. But I'm really, really shocked that this all went down. After I've been telling people I give this higher, maybe a B in baseball things. It's a It's a single runner headed the second base, but no, this is not a home run. I think Texas trades apples for apples. When they hired Tom Herman. They got the former offensive play caller for Urban Meyer. Now Texas gets the play caller from Nick Saban. And here we go again. And one other thing. I know I'm dominating. Not good for you. Let me just say this. It's finally and listen. I've been follow along or football a long time. Texas is a mid level program. Jason. It's not an elite program anymore. We're not an elite program anymore. I hate to say, and I fought callers and people saying You let the outside influence the inside of the 40 acres. And you know what? I fought that enough off that, But you know what? They're right. This program is dominated by rich moose tres That's what it is, and rich boosters got what they wanted over the weekend. And we're going forward. And I hope they're right. And again, Steve Sarkisian is I trust I saw the soon we were on the air with men on the end zone club. Seems like a very nice guy. But to me this is apples for apples in my excited about this. No, I'm not excited about this at all. And part of me feels real sorry for Tom Herman getting lied to by the athletic department and those recruits getting lied to by the athletic department and the assistant coaches who now have to pack up and leave. Get lied to by there by their bosses. 83605 90 degree with that Clements is take their eye. I talked myself into Steve Sarkisian. And maybe you're talking me back out 51283605 90. I'm gonna will come back. I'll push back on a little bit of that. Talk more about the Tom Herman situation as well. We want to hear from you 83605 91 you think of the new head coach. Longhorn football. It's sports talk Jason and Vito back in just a moment. Wall Street. Oh, a fondue set..

Biden faces backlash over Hyde Amendment
"Hey, the democratic race is getting more interesting. And interesting because that's all along article about Joe Biden who leads Donald Trump, Texas, and Joe Biden, who lose leaves everybody, the democratic now, the far far left is mad at Joe Biden or his votes on abortion. He's a Catholic. He doesn't believe in abortion, as athletes that he voted all the time for no federally funded Hyde amendment. That goes back a long. Now, I believe a guy from Illinois. Yes. Congressman hide from Illinois. But it's outraged the far far left. He said, hey, I'm in the middle of the road on this than they don't like it. Yeah. That's coming, because I don't I think he's taking the calculated risk. He's campaigning for general election. He's going to take the risks that they're going to chop away at him. They're going to beat on him, but he's thinking old white guys in Ohio. He's not thinking twenty five year old found males in Oregon. Yeah. I think that's the calculus here, and I think he's gonna stick to it because he's thinking in terms of general election, and how am I going to go the rust belt and talk to old white guys? And I'm going to stick to it because I'm not gonna make that mistake bouncing back and forth because it'll be held against him when he gets to the old white guys. So I'm guessing just a guess here. He's going to run the risk of having that gap close and a primary of the twenty percent because it's all twenty percent. Right. We all get that now. Yeah. We all get your on twenty percent of the politicians care about twenty percent margins, though. He's going to run the risk that twenty percent in Oregon. Is going to tear him up. Got to survive. It.
