"Magic. Trevor Monetary Douglas here on ESPN Radio. How much of a concern do you guys have with Oklahoma? Harry? Start with you. I'm concerned. I'm concerned about the defense. You look at the years Lincoln Riley has taken over this team. What has been the cloud hovering over there in the dark cloud defense? Can't get stopped. Defense kick couldn't can't get stops. You look at this year, everyone said the defense is going to be better. Well, if you let a two lane come this close to beating you And I don't want to hear anything about defense. At some point, they have to get it fixed. And I and I like that their their defensive line and their defense line actually made plays today and calls those turnovers. But you lie back and crew. Your secondary. Everything has to work in unison. If you want an opportunity to make it back to the college football playoffs and win the big 12, and from an offensive standpoint, they had a lot of yards, scored a lot of points and left a lot of opportunities on the table. They did. Yeah. And I'll just give you one of those opportunities. Marvin Memes, one of the best receivers in the country, was running a post from the left side and Spencer Rattler. The quarterback hit him and it was a gain of about 25 yards. It was great. Should have been a touchdown because that ball came in a little bit behind. Men's men's had to slow down, reach back to catch the ball. And that allowed the defender to close the distance and make the tackle. If that ball would have been out in front of memes, he'd still be running now. And I think Coach Lincoln Riley will look at plays like that and say, Okay, guys, Yeah, that was good look good in the statute, etcetera, but it should have been a long touchdown. So we need to get better some of those things. So the offense as good as it was, still wasn't as smooth as it needs to be. And I give you another one to ever remember Spencer rattler. It was either we say, Hey, uh, Hazelwood. He hit those guys in stride, and they bobbled the football and the receiver When he got tackled, he came up pat in the football really hard because he knew if he would have caught that football clean. It would have been a touchdown. Those plays you have to make. We have an opportunity to make explosive place. Spencer Adler, third straight game with the Russian touchdown and passing touchdown, joins Jalen Hurts. And Baker. Mayfield is the only Oklahoma quarterback since 2000 to have such a game in a season opener. This is Game day on ESPN Radio Magic, Trevor manage and Harry Douglas up.

Indianapolis Colts' T.Y. Hilton to Miss Start of Season

"T Y. Hilton expected to miss the start of the regular season after re aggravating a neck injury. At practice last week earlier on ESPN radio are Courtney Cronin in Shape Peppler. The Colts need to let go stage their locker room like they need to take a page out of the Baltimore Orioles and what they did there in breaking a 19 game losing streak because it just feels like injury after injury for them Now, next on the list is T Y Hilton, who's got a back problem. They don't know the diagnosis with That, But I know Courtney, you've got some more insight as to what the deal is with T Y Hilton in Indianapolis. Yeah, Apparently he was injured in practice on Wednesday. This didn't come from the preseason game that they just played on Friday. That happened early, and then he came back out and he was able to finish practice. But now we find out Shea that he has a back and a neck injury and he's out indefinitely and that comes on the heels. And, like 24 hours, they find out that and then Sam Ehlinger, the backup quarterback as a knee injuries out for 4 to 6 weeks. I think that this Indianapolis team for all the steps forward that they were able to take in the last few weeks, getting Carson Wentz back at practice, the good at least, you know, positive news that they got with Quentin Nelson, who had the same foot injury that Carson once has. That it's not going to be the end of his season, either, And then they're dealt this blow the big one here, though, as I look at all of these injuries and trying to figure out which is the worst one is probably Ehlinger because you don't know when Carson once is really going to be ready to play. Is it going to be weak? One? They haven't put that timetable on him. Yet. That is still two weeks away. Your backup quarterback right now is Jacob Eason like it was supposed to be Ehlinger. But now he's out 4 to 6 weeks. That's something that I don't think is a should give them any confidence. That's a Big below Hilton, Like many

You don't know how it was going to come for him to take that opportunity and run with it. That's what you want to see. That being said. I still think Cam Newton is going to be starting September 12th. I just feel that he's going to start the season as the number one quarterback for Bill Belichick. I'm excited. Honestly, for Cam in Year two with the New England Patriots, I thought he was gonna be a little bit better a year ago.

Yankees Acquire Joey Gallo in Trade With Rangers

"All right. Baseball trade deadline is tomorrow afternoon. I'm going to give the green light to my man Himbo, who is alongside here today as always proud member of the Hashtag crew and my VP of baseball Analytics as the first shoe dropped yesterday, and it dropped in the Bronx, Joey Gallo, acquired by the New York Yankees, and we spent so much time wondering, well, the Yankees by could they possibly sell? Is it worth mortgaging up a significant chunk of your future to try and rescue this season, and they answered that in an enormous way yesterday? Joey Gallo might very well be the biggest name that is traded at the trade deadline of the Yankees landed him Now I view this as a massive risk, but I do view it as a risk worth taking. Here's what I mean. The reason it's a massive risk is because Joey Gallo is a 2 11 career hitter. He bedded 1 81 last year and in theory, what the Yankees should have been looking to do is add some diversity to their lineup to add players. You don't just walk, strikeout or hit home runs, and he is the very definition of the three true outcome player. But the reason it's a risk worth taking is that there's a lot more to Joey Gallo, of course. And that he's one of the more prolific home run hitters we've ever seen. He's an outstanding outfielder. He's actually the best outfielder in baseball this season by defensive runs saved. He has a lot of value as a base runner, and, most importantly, for the Yankees. He's a left handed hitter. They needed a left handed hitter to occupy the middle of that order, and amongst all the names that will be, you know, flying around over the next day or two. He's probably the best left hand about that was going to go. The Yankees got him without giving up any of their top 10 prospects.

And now no school is a better producer of NFL talent. And the Crimson Tide.

Bringing that class is total toe eight first round selections. That's right, ate from the same recruiting class. And what does it mean? Don't leave Alabama as good actually better than anybody else at recruiting. They also developed incredibly well, and it's a testament to how much faith and trust NFL organizations place into the program of the Crimson Tide.

All three of those nights I'm gonna throw a question you regarded today Sul. Have you here with Scott Piccioli, who worked in the NFL in terms of being a front office. He's not NFL Network analyst when he was on Greenie with Mike Greenberg earlier today, he says, no matter what you hear about deals happening, pump your brakes. You never know when that better offer is going to come. So you're you're nailing it. So the conversations were having happening now again, you're setting parameters. If You know, if then what was that cold hypothesis Back in, uh in job class. If then, Well, I think that's kind of what you're setting up because that's the exact point. Something better made Come along, and people understand business. But you're even only doing these these parameters with people that you know and trust. It's a great word parameters, because if you're an NFL team, if you believe you have a quarterback, you gotta find him some weapons, Whether it's wide receivers where this offensive line, maybe even a running back depending where you are I'm going to throw this at you. Based on what he just said. You're in Fitzsimmons. You're number five. No matter what team it is. And the two guys you love in this draft that I'm not. Quarterbacks are carpets. The title at a Florida and pin a seal of the left tackle out organ. You gotta pick one of those guys. Who is it right? Do I have my quarterback already? You have a quarterback? Absolutely. So I've got one. How's your quarterback? She's a young, He's prime. Let's put it that way. Okay, He's prime. So I'll say this. He's not young, young like baby breath Young, but he's not old old like you're ready. Throw the flowers out. I'm pretty surprised if the highest rated player on my board between those two and that's gonna be close friend, right? I know that. You love both of these guys. You might you have been part of the fan club, probably since they were made for people who may be new to the show, Freddy. Now I have argued this over the last 67 years. I'm a big You take the highest rated player on your board. I don't care what you need. You put the board together for a reason. And I'm ready is all about me. You need players for high school player. Yes, But if it's that close and that this is where you want that to meet. Absolutely. I'm with you. That's why I put those two names out there. I'm going to go school because of my quarterback can't throw it to Kyle pits. If he's on his ass s O, I'm called with a lead the outstanding left tackle to protect my quarterback. Would go carpets. Because that's how I'm surprised that that's how you help your quarterback. You haven't tied in that could help the running game and help him get the ball down the scene. Your points valid. I got to go help him up after he's been sad, But if you got caught giving the ball quickly, they won't get to him anyway. Carpets could help out a lot with that. He's in Fitzsimmons on Freddie Coleman and Freddie and Fitz Simmons. Presented by progressive insurance. We go back to the city of Minneapolis and get the temperature after that city after the verdict involving the death of George Floyd last year, That's next.

"This is the sporting life on ESPN radio and the ESPN app. Here's Jeremy chef. Each week here on the show were joined by one of my colleagues at ESPN radio this week. We have the distinct pleasure. Ah, being joined by the co host of the daily show, Spain and Fitz sarahspain Sarah. Thank you for being with us. Yeah, thanks for having me now, sir. We had your co host on a few weeks ago. You guys don't actually do the show any others presence. Do you know? I'm in a very decked out closet and Chicago, and he's usually out in Bristow with our producer and board up everybody else. How does that work? Is it better not to be near each other? No, I wouldn't say it was better when we've done the show in the same room there is this a little bit easier give and take, particularly because I big fan of sarcastic. Asides where I'm going to interrupt crack a joke or make fun of you and then let you get back to what you're doing. And that's a little harder to do from. Because there isn't like the body language and the facial signals, but we have cameras that we often use on our computers. So we can kind of get a feel for who wants to ask the guessed the next question or if they're ready, ready to jump in and so surprising. I think from the start we've had such an easy chemistry that it really hasn't been too tough to not be in the same place. We're speaking with Sarah Spain, the co host of Spain and Fitz which you can here on ESPN radio every day. Six to nine PM eastern time. What's your schedule like prepping for a show like this every day? Three hours of live radio. It's funny when I used to do around the horn a couple times a week and I didn't have daily show. It felt a much more herculean task because if something came up, I hadn't already been sort of in the no, I was like starting from from ground zero. But with the show, there's a lot of carryover of knowledge. So there are some days where the hours leading up to when we get on about an hour and a half or so before the show starts to talk about topics where all of that time spent listening to podcasts and reading. Stories and figuring out what my thoughts are, what what the good stories are, and then there's other days where when I'm done with radio at eight PM at night, I gotta use the hours before my show to go to the doctor do something with my dogs or clean the house. And so thankfully, it's sort of a balance of the days where the topics are the NBA finals where we've been on it for so long that the knowledge is already there and the topics there. It's a little bit easier than when something springs on we have to do a ton of research to make sure you've got all the facts on the insight. Right. What makes a good daily radio show on sports? Ooh, that's interesting. I think first and foremost, it needs to be entertaining because someone is choosing to spend their time that way. And there are so many outlets to get your sports, whether it's television or websites, newspapers radio. So they need to choose you to give it to them. And so it's it needs to be entertaining. It needs to be voices and people that you find compelling some people even like to hate. Listen, right. So people like to find someone that they disagree with because they want to give you my in their car about. How much they don't like their takes, but I think it's just choosing people that you wanna hear the news from. So the biggest stories of the day, the things that someone wants to take to the bar and have the best tidbits and sound bites to talk about with their buddies as the game is about to come on and specifically at our time, you know, it's it's right when people are maybe heading home from work or maybe heading to go watch game somewhere. So we wanna make sure they're up to date on everything that's happening right now. The biggest news and then also being passionate and interested in what you talk about. Because I'd argue that if you're a good storyteller, you're an interesting person. You've got a good report, interesting chemistry with the other person, almost anything can be interesting to the listener if you truly find it. Interesting. It's just a matter of how you present it so know putting in the work to make sure that you're bringing people good stories and telling them right the way the lineup shakes out on ESPN radio every day. Obviously they're only so many big stories in sports and they get talked about constantly through the course of day. How do you try to distinguish the way. Hey, you address topics that have already been discussed by the time you're on the air at six PM. Well, the first thing that I would have to say, which is something that I'm learning slowly as I talked to people who know more about this stuff than I do is that no one sitting at home and watching ESPN all day. Right? So we're sort of biased in the way we've you things because it's our job and it's all we do. So I know what they talk about on every show. I know that takes all these other people, but most people tuning and maybe this is the one time a day that they listened to sports radio, maybe when they're driving in their car or maybe this is the one podcast that they choose to catch themselves up. So they're not gonna hurt it all day long. They're still going to want those hits the biggest stories. The key is to have them want to get it from you, or if they are someone who happens to listen all day or maybe have the radio on while they're at their desk. All day is what's unique. An interesting about your perspective and for Spain and Fitz. It's pretty obvious, right? So as a woman, I'm the only woman who's regularly on a weekday show on the lineup. So

Ianfitz Simmons who co hosts, of course, Freddie and Fitz every night on ESPN radio from nine pm to one AM eastern time fits pleasure. Having you here on the sporting life jab, good to talk to my friend. How are you? I know that you know, this is one of those honors you've been waiting for a long time. Tap to to appear here on the sporting life. What what kind of magic did Dan's access gear producer have to work to get you to agree to come on the show Danzi by the way. I mean, it was it was a hell of an effort because I had to walk out of my house up about eight steps into the back house that we have here at our home in Dallas, Texas, where the ESPN for some reason helped make me a bit of a studio here. So I had to walk up eight steps into a controlled environment, right air conditioned, the whole works kitchen bath and put a headset on to talk to you, Jeremy. And it's been so many years, and I said, you know what? I will exert the energy of walking up eight steps and putting a headset on to talk to my man for the sporting life. Absolutely the maximum effort that we would expect from anyone to max maximum. So let me get this straight. You do the show from Dallas every night Friday night. I mean, we'll we, we have the people living in space. So we finally figured out what is this thing called FaceTime where I can actually see him in real time. He can see me. There is absolutely zero delay and due to modern technology in the worldwide leader. They shipped me this Gizmo which of course Danzi and the others had to had to program because I am a technical idiot technology, and I do not get along at all. I mean, it's a mutual hatred, so it's all set up where to talk to you right now I walk up. I pushed let it literally two buttons. They made this if I can operate this machine, a zygote could operate this machine. So when you're when you're co hosting the show with Freddie, you're seeing him to your like doing FaceTime on your phones, like how does that work? It's like I'm in studio. Yeah. No, it's a big ole ipad right next to my computer and then four TV's in front of me. And so it's. It's like I'm in studio with them. Sounds like I'm in studio and I just to push two buttons and that's it. Boom. I'm in Bristol. You ever forget those that like he can see you. You know somebody actually, that's kinda weird. You guys are looking each other that much for four hours a night night. In other words, become the disgusting human beings that we are as men. Is that what you mean? Maybe I don't take from it, whatever you wish Mr Simmons. Necessarily. No another. Now my kids do because my kids every now and then will walk up. That's part of the beauty of having this setup. Is that? Yeah. I mean, I'm home to cook dinner because I love to cook and here to help kids with homework and whatnot. But sometimes if we're taping interview early or whatever it might be for an appreciation meeting, we're doing a different time slot and filling in for somebody whether it's lebatardshow, whatever the kids will come up and normally they see dad would the headset on right then be quiet, but every now and then they forget that Freddie or approve Shannon, Panter stocks Yankee when Danes ease in with us that they can. They can also see him and they're, they're behind me making faces or whatever, or one of them will come up in a bathing suit, and you know, in forget and then now they're two girls, twelve and nine of the twelve year old. Now she remembers every time because she's becoming of that age, right? So every now and then you had a family will completely forget that. Wait a minute. There are people in in the studio at ESPN that canal see everything that is going on here in the old Backhaus. We're speaking with ianfitz Simmons, who is the co host of Freddie and Fitz Simons, which you can hear each night on ESPN radio each weeknight from nine eastern time to one AM eastern time, Dallas time we're fits is that's eight to midnight.

I always carry mass with university in the match in the mass communication program with me because they taught me so much and the best thing they taught me Jeremy was that you should not be afraid to learn each and every day, no matter how much you know there's always going to be something out that you did not know. So to have that going into the world where you're competing against people who graduated from Duke or north west and or Syracuse or Penn State. I always believed that was on equal footing mainly because the people that I was able to learn from the people that taught me extremely well, I believe gave me an advantage that not a lot of people thought about what even think about for somebody graduated from a small school in Pennsylvania sticky with Freddie Coleman. The co host of Freddie and Fitz Simons, which you could hear every night on ESPN radio every weeknight. That is nine pm to one A M and and what what's your, what's your prep? Like every day for four hour live show. I'll tell you this, Jeremy. I must drive my wife. The niece crazy because I'm always always prepping throughout the day. It seems as if I can't shut my mind down, I can't shut my mind off and I'm kind of glad that I'm really able to not do that where I can just put stuff away and not think about it that we planted times. I'll play pick a basketball with people here at the company and somebody will say something and that will trigger an idea in my head that when I go to work and we get ready to have our staff meeting, I say, guy mentioned this today and everybody's, yeah, let's let's treetop this treetop the segment and then we can branch off of that. That so because I don't set my mind down. I know my wife looks at me and said, okay, can you please give this arrest a little bit? Because I, I see to the country five days a week for with the invited Simmons. Can I get you for a little bit, but she clearly understands that that's how I've always been and I would have. I would be this way eat if I was not working at ESPN radio, but I'm always prepping always thinking always thinking of ways to make the show better to make me better to make better when you were starting off with the business, and you know you're working in smaller markets in the northeast. Well, what was your dream job? What did you want to do? I wanted to be the best top forty classic rock DJ that I could have ever thought of being really. Those were the heroes that I grew up with growing up in New York growing up in Brooklyn. Then in queens where my heroes weren't the Marv Albert. So the mardi Glickman's or the Bob Wilson, the world, my heroes with the Harry Harrison's and the Scott Shannon's and the Frankie Crocker is and the Ken spider webs. They were people that I grew up listening to, and I listen to me. Music radio still my favorite radio station. Jeremy of all time is W any W

You're on the show feature a conversation with one of my fellow ESPN radio hosts, and it is a privileged this week to be joined by the one and only will Cain who showed the will. Cain show is on every weekday from three to six PM. You see him on TV all the time as well. We'll thank you for being with us today. Glad to be here, Jeremy. Thank you. So we'll your path to this careers little bit different than most of us here at ESPN. Could you tell us a little bit about your background in the business? Yeah, I don't know when the in the business part of my career starts to be honest, your me, it all seems to be a series of, I don't know if they're left turns or if it's just a swerving snaky curvy line to get me here. But I would guess that the in the business part of this career started for me, I was living in Montana. I was working on a ranch. I was guiding hunters back into the mountains to kill. Elk and she making this up. Right? That's not really nice where I swear because it reminds me so much of my background is well. Uncanny, right? I had no idea that that we shared the the whole ranch thing. So yeah, please continue. Yeah, one of the best years of my life. By the way, I had just graduated from law school at the university of Texas, and I thought, you know, my dad was a lawyer. I feel like I grew up with almost like it was written in stone that I would be a lawyer, grew up around lawyers, talked law cases debates at the dinner table, and I loved law school, man, I loved it. I loved the kind of conversations we had loved the way we learned. I liked, you know, outlining every single idea that you have and see how it flows from one to the other. But at the end of law school, I thought this kind of feels like hidden a double or a single and my dad was a plaintiff's lawyer grown up in Sherman Texas, and he had met medical malpractice cases and whatever else. But the the way he made a living was by hitting home runs. I mean, you had to win the case. You got you. You go, you only got paid. You know, if if your side. One. And so I don't know if I grew up with this homerun mentality, but I thought I'm going to go, you know, swing for the fence before I settle for a single or a double and swing for the fences. For me meant writing. We might share that part of our careers. I thought I had the great American novel in me. So I moved to Montana. I did this project is describing for you. I was working on a ranch to make make a living while I at night, wrote migrate American novel. Any went nowhere. But while I was up there, my dad died and I'm the oldest of four. And so it was time to grow up and it was time to move back to Texas and be around my brothers and sisters and do what I can to help be somewhat of a not a father figure, but a guiding figure. And in that time I read the biography of Al Neuharth. The guy that started USA today, the longtime CEO of Gannett corporation. And I was like, I love media love writing. I've got this entrepreneurial bug how to emerge it. So for me after reading that and also by the way, the biography of Warren Buffett who's been heavily invested in newspapers for decades. I thought, newspapers. That's what I'm gonna do. So I worked I for nineteen thousand dollars a year with a law degree at small town newspapers, outside of Austin, Texas with it in mind that I would buy my own. I venture did I borrowed money either. Some suburban newspapers, outside of Dallas gathered up a group, sold it to Stevens media, which at one time owned the Las Vegas review journal, and I was often running man. I started Latino media companies, well, and the longest shortest getting into the details of all of these is I had succeeded in. I had failed and I'd said to myself whatever I do, I wanna wake up passionate about what I do every day and I love and I've always loved debate conversation philosophy. And that meant sending an email to the letter to to the president of CNN one night. And I said, you need somebody like me over there. I done some free work for national review for FOX, and I send my clip and he's like, you're right, we're speaking with will Cain the hosts, a will Cain show on ESPN radio, every weekday, three to six PM. You see him on TV all the time as well on. I take on outside the lines on sportscenter and you've been at ESPN now for about three years. I think it is will. And your profile has grown a lot during that time to what you would tribute your success. ESPN the fact that you know you seem to be connecting in a way that usually takes a long time for people to build up that connection. Mostly, I would say my winning personality. Some it could be that I'm unique now I don't know Jeremy. I think. I think probably two things. I will always be indebted to several people here at ESPN. John skipper was the risk taker willing to bring a guy like me and who didn't come directly from a sports background. As we just talked about. I came from CNN talking politics, rob Savonarola
