It'd be nice today. Just have two questions. If you let me sure okay You Know Kentucky. They're they're definitely TAME DEBATE. But what's wrong with? Lsu What do you see that they could improve on? I thought a couple of weeks ago Dan that they were the best team in the SEC. And I'm trying to. I was not too surprised. By the loss of Alabama. I felt like that was a tough place to go into but I was really surprised. Not so much by the loss but the way they lost at home. Aren't you yes. It seems like they're not playing to the screen. I don't know if I'd panic or or what I am going to get a little and I have some thoughts on it but I'm not sure I'm eminently qualified to breakdown will. Wade's team this year. But but I I still think they are Tournament team but They are just slipping at the wrong time but Well what what do you? What do you see What did you hear down there? Well I. I'm not hearing anything you know. I'm just a man in my thoughts frail. Most of the time you know I'll watch all games but You know discipline the great evil. You know. Well we're I don't see a lot of discipline anywhere in basketball for that matter. I mean think about think about this for second to greatest coach of the modern era took a team into a place last night that is struggling and even though they had trouble there in the past Duke lost by twenty two points to North Carolina State. How do you explain that? I don't know probably I know you know. Well I tell you what I know about college basketball this year and I know the the experts will disagree. I I think it's a down year. I think they're they're really any Standalone teams like we saw last year with ultimately Duke which did not make it to the final four but Virginia is probably the best overall team team being the key word there and in the SEC. I think Kentucky Right now is going to win it. Auburn suffered a terrible loss last night now again their best player was out. So that could be a factor Probably the biggest Shocker the night was Alabama blowing Ten or twelve point lead at home against him a mediocre Texan emptying. This is a very unpredictable team. I know people will say that makes for a great tournament. It probably does. And that's all that really matters right now but The road the tournament is is very surprising. Ryan is up.

Then he'd come down to work a few days with me and we were on interstate forty five headed toward Dallas from his right and then I was getting hungry and he asked if we could stop it Mexico. He saw the sign on the side road. And I said well actually. Yeah we can. But it's pronounced my hair. Well he got a confused look on his face and I think anything more about it. I took the exit and we pulled in the first place there. Little High School girl. I'm assuming young girl was the white dress and and she greeted us and he he said. Look before I placed my order. I I would like for you to tell me how to pronounce the name of this place and say it slow so I can remember it and she looked at me and I just kind of shrug my shoulders. And she looked back at him and with a serious look at she could muster. She looked at him and said their re clean Bad then my my my point of contention today pollen you and I had this discussion before but I noticed that the visual media focus still On some names do not pronounce them correctly. Okay which ones. Well there are several Obviously the most abused as coach with. Lsu It's wrong. The in is solid. And then I noticed that to everybody kind of slaughters his last name. They say tango the lower. Well there's no in in that it's T. A. G. O. Take the law and then the other one asks you what your sources on Taegu lower whatever however you pronounce the Tango Very early in his career at Ala. Listen you cannot come into this program of all shows and tell me that just because someone pronounces their name correctly makes it right. Do you know why so that no because I don't pronounce my own name correctly. Oh is that right. That is correct. How would if you would pronounce your name correctly? How would it be? It would be fine. Bam is that right. Not Sign Bomb Right. I can see I mean the the the literal It's a German name and in Germany It means good tree find good bomb tree. There's no there's nothing in the I mean I don't do any World War. Two JOKES HERE. But there's nothing there's no there's no. Baa bound is not Balances Word I don't know what B- bombs are but I don't know what it is in German exactly exactly and the other one is the running back Louisiana Native Clemson and everyone says. At and then it's at the end at Ti. Of course MO MO Cajun words. I mispronounce them usually speak for themselves. If you if you use commonsense exactly they sure do but anyway thanks for the energy loved the show. Never Miss it and Maybe Could be act. Well will remember dairy queen. Thank you I appreciate the elocution lesson what John is in South Carolina. Hey Paul Free College tuition. That is being taught about several candidates. What would that do to the value? Or how that affects the scholarships that are offered to the athletes across the board. How would I? I'm I'm trying to understand your question. Okay they say You know how candidates want to offer free. Tuition college public universities. What would that do to the value of scholarships being offered? Well depends now in Georgia. What do they think? What's the thing called George? The Hope Scholarship Hope in life. I don't I don't think I'm not sure. The athletic scholarship is is is privately funded. So it's a different. I I think it would come into a different criteria right but if if college was free right for everyone. What's the value of a scholarship? It's already free. Well there's more there's more to an athletic scholarship than just the The actual scholarship it comes with other I haven't seen one lately. But there's a value on tuition room room board books so it probably goes a little deeper than your normal academic scholarship right just. If cases like tuition was free. It goes on that sure. Yeah listen when you when you go away to college just because you have free. Tuition doesn't mean you're covered no alcohol. Who the president is to right right. Okay I was just wondering how thank you very much appreciate it. Jim is up next in Texas. I'm a- hello you still there. Hey Jim yes hello Jim I'm here Go ahead Jim who? Who Am I speaking the Paul Finebaum show okay? I got you what's up. We lost him. Anyway ED is up next. Hey had paul you know it's raining so hard down here in the Mississippi Delta that the Animals Start Lineup. Two by two. I'm getting kind of worried about it. we have been through a wet period especially in Mississippi I mean has there been a dry day this year. I don't believe there has. I do not believe there has Paul I WANNA Listens more opinionated Answer you can give me because I have put some thought into this. And they're to me. They're pros and cons. My life has gotten into football with less four or five years with me and She set down table. We were talking asked me about up. Don't you think it's unfair for some of these schools can afford to pay seven million dollars a year? Doesn't that give them an unfair advantage over these little smaller schools? That can't afford that Dan in other words. What I'm saying is you think. How do you feel like a self imposed a salary cap on these on these conferences by by the conference commissioner having here's the problem with that there's at least one private institution now again? They would all have to adhere to a conference rule. But I I am not in favor of putting salary caps on anyone in in a competitive world to me it smacks of be. I know. Capitalism is Kinda smack in the face but me the pro would be. It would stop some of these schools which we do have to in the southeastern conference. That has these seven million dollars. Forty nine dollars Contracts and we can you. Can you tell me why how paying an extra two million dollars Changes the playing field. Well to me I think some of these coups sit appearing sometime commit financial suicide. That's their that's their problem though. That's the great part of the system edits if If athletic director wants to spend eight million dollars for a coach. That's his problem. It's not mine. I don't mean to be that snippety but everyone has a lot of money and we heard a guy yesterday from southern cal say will they didn't WanNA spend money to get Arben Mayer well. That's their problem. Well I agree but like I say to me you know. She asked me this. This woman you know doesn't that give an unfair to me. The the the The mouth of the physical financial malpractice comes in here when athletic directors get highsted by people like Jimmy Sexton to put these these back end by couching contracts. Where once you hire a coach? You can't afford to pay him off. That is to me ridiculous. I understand the competitive marketplace. When you better when it's a two way buyout but a lot of these guys have no chance of getting another job and I think that's I think. Athletic directors are have been derelict in their responsibility. Hey thanks for the call. We are coming up against a break. We're going to take a deep dive into the past with our next guest He grew up in Alabama covered Politics there and went on to Atlanta then Washington covering the White House under President Reagan and then to the New York Times is the executive editor wants covered bear Bryant as well. We'll talk to the great hallel rain's coming up next. You're listening to the Paul Finebaum. Show podcast. What are you? Welcome in our next guest to. He is Hal Raines and Someone who I've had unbelievable admiration for every day that I've been doing this job as a reporter and later What I'm doing now. He grew up in Alabama. He went on to the New York Times where he ultimately covered the White House and moved up the ranks until he became the executive editor of The Times he a Pulitzer Prize winner. He has written many books and I cannot wait to say hello to how rains. How Good Afternoon Paul? Are You doing I? Would I would have you on just to talk about the weather. That's how much I've been looking forward to this day to good afternoon to you. Thank you Well southern this subject close to my heart and today it means witness it. I'm in fair. Hope Alabama where? We're we're flooding down here but I've had a really good Bam account today Spent the morning with a film crew from Tuscaloosa. They're doing a documentary about one of my heroes Chuck Morgan the Great Civil Rights from Birmingham and On political front. We just got a new poll. That shows tougher bills tied with Jeff Sessions. Yesterday we have because I'm sure you've read. Espn we're told not to not to get into politics But but the fact that former Auburn coach is running for the Senate and doing well. It's just fascinating which I have to ask you because there have been so many conversations in the past about political figures getting involved in politics. How close do you think Bear Brian ever came to running. Not Very Paul he There was a lot of talk about him running for governor primarily and he never really seriously considered it in my estimation And I think he was too smart for that. You know as far as athletic figures getting into politics. It can't hurt right the But coach tubful is running a stronger than expected race. And he's in a statistical tie with session right now and I think it shows you know Fob James. The great fullback from AUBURN BACK IN THE FIFTIES. I think Auburn put him in office. They stick together those war eagles and I think he's. He's he's a way stronger candidate than any one would have predicted while you better hope. Saving doesn't throw his hat in the rain late because I could change the dynamics. Yeah yeah on the general subject of football down here you know. This is the kind of a pretty strong Auburn town. And of course the strong Alabama town. The football talk is more quiet down here than I can remember in a very long time. Paul and it is interesting and you know you. I have to bring this up too because it's one of my favorite pieces in in journalism that you did a piece I think it was the Atlantic or the trying to remember which New Republic Republic. I've got at home. I just couldn't remember But I've quoted this line a thousand times how Because it reminded me of something I uttered a sitting there at the The exact same thing you you wrote that. I said to myself on December Fifteenth Nineteen eighty-two watching coach Bryant retire and you you you said that day in that article in the in the new republic that That you would watch coach. Bryan and you're you're retiring as an Alabama football fan essentially because it would never be that good again it was and I was wrong and I feel very generation. Lucky I mean how many football fans for any team Get to see two eras like coach Bryant era and coach Saban era. But what's interesting about Alabama Fan and I include myself in this if it sounds like a criticism the reason it's quite on the Alabama side after we win a national championship. We take that as divine signal that we will never lose another football game and that that's now the mall or the universe and when we do lose one then it kind of we we saw for a while but it's a strange situation Fair hope is strong. Lsu Town and I actually see as many Lsu stickers banners around town. Right now as I do Bama in Auburn that is interesting. What you have there there was a fella down there who may still be there And I talked to the not that long ago who Who became thoroughly infamous When he worked with Richard Crucial who had who had a football field Honoring Lsu. Didn't he? I'm sorry I'm not following you. You had you had lsu fan down there who who worked AT HEALTHSOUTH UNDER RICHARD. Screw that later. Went to jail that That line that line football field Honoring Tiger Stadium at one point down there either fair. Hope or Daphne. Yeah I think it must have the. I'm a relatively new relative newcomer. You got me on local color. That doesn't have to me a lot Paul. Well mine tire career trying to one up you house. Barely Upton Bubba call last week and that saying he was an alumnus of our paper. The Birmingham Post Herald. And that really took me back nostalgically and it took me back to an earlier reference. You made to the poster where you said you made a hundred and forty dollars a week and you're a little after me but I never broke ninety seven dollars so well that was rode hard and put up wet now in all candor and you being a former newspaper editor the one hundred forty dollars. A week was in shreveport my first job I think I think I made one hundred sixty five under Angus McCarron at the Birmingham Post Herald. Oh my goodness now angus. He was He he was a thrifty man And I know actually I can't tell it on the air. I know I'll share with you personally sometime but you know you're telling coach. Bryant and the post terrible coach Bryan figured in two of the most significant days to me of my journalistic career. The first byline story ahead in a newspaper was my. I was the sideline reporter at the Nineteen Sixty Four Alabama Auburn game and I saw that sideline pass was go. Last stood the first half right behind coach. Bryant and Nemeth was injured that Didn't start that day. He right behind Joe on the bench. Then the second half I stood right behind should Jordan and the Great Tucker Frederickson and Jimmy. Seidl so I said well this. This is getting well. I didn't get paid very much as I said Said it's got to be what I'M GONNA do about two years later. Alabama beat Nebraska in the Orange Bowl and channel. Six sent me out to the Birmingham Airport to meet the team and I felt like a peanut interviewing the jolly green giant when I stood. Hold that my coach. Bryan and I was so embarrassed. to find out that the that the camera wasn't working so we didn't get any sound so not only had. I'd mustard my courage to speak to the great man but it was. I had wasted his time. But the silver lining was I s lease dowdy tackle from Alabama. What it felt like to catch the very important tackle eligible pass in that game. He said I don't know Jerry Duck in college. So if they're the Alabama fans listening they they may those names but it was the saving the Arab The broad saving era ride has been pretty pretty phenomenal. Don't go anywhere I by the way the the the lsu fan down there Aaron Beam who who lined his field In honor of Tiger Stadium may be may have been dented. I I wanna ask you something about Coach Bryan because I've been trying to. I've been a question many many times about and I've read things you have written and I'll get to that in a second about Was BRYANT SLOW TO INTEGRATE. Hal Range will rejoin us in a moment as we continue here on this Thursday afternoon. You're listening to the Paul Finebaum. Show podcast with how range from better to the New York Times and how? It's all the other day we had Wendell Hudson onto Of course broke the color barrier under Newton fifty years ago he was honored Coleman Coliseum and I've Read. I've read things that you've written about this and it's always been a great debate about coach. Bryant and and in in his opinion and his philosophy about bring the first black player. Alabama your thoughts on that. And you. You think he waited too long. Did heard the Greg Wendell Hudson interview and I'm glad you brought that up to go first to the first point. Yes he was. He was slow and he was the one person in Alabama who could have by example now without talking but just by example lead the state to place That George Wallace was trying to hold us back from an eye. Faulted him for that journalistically but that said once he made the decision he provided an excellent low model for the entire state of how to accomplish integration in a positive way and I think he had a big influence. And I really. My heart was warmed by Wendell. Hudson telling about coach Ron coming over and sitting down next to him and eating a peanut butter sandwich with him in the players Lounge. Because that's the kind of leadership that Brought at his best symbolized which is leadership by example. And you know we've had no shortage down here. People who try to lead by exaltation and I think I think he I had tremendous respect for the way he when he got around to doing it belatedly. He did it so well and I thought that was really heartwarming tale. That Wendell Hudson Tone. You covered a lot of that era. Of course you wrote about it in your extraordinary book. My soul is rested. And I know that any question now It's a some may seem cliche but you lived it A- as you reflect back on your life and you've already done it at various various intervals What do you make out of it? All well. Seeing the racial transition in Birmingham the most segregated city in America Where we had so many problems including a corrupt police department and Seeing Birmingham six changed into the modern city that it is made me an optimist that said and I know. Espn doesn't encourage political discussion. So I'll say divisional way that said the bitterness of the divide in our country right now he has dinner my optimism quite frankly and I it just seems yeah just a minute or two that we have left. I want to just have to follow that up. I think he would have if I had worked for you. If I'd had that pleasure you would have said okay. What does that mean well? I think it's the first time in my life and I've covered Jimmy Carter. I covered Ronald Reagan You know both the Bush's I even had the great pleasure of spending a good deal time on a couple of cases with Richard Nixon When he was In retirement and he was a brilliant thinker about American government. And I just have to say this is the first time in my life. I don't think as a parent I could tell my children or grandchildren that they the presidency is projecting a positive role model for how they should conduct themselves. Personally you've left me hanging in in space here on that one. How one thing we we have to do is get you back. There's a thousand things I want to ask you about your life and times and it hasn't been easy Throw for the circle to be so. We'll leave it there. We'll let people chew on that and who knows by the next time we talk where the world will be. Dad Well I look forward to out if a ten seconds. Aren't you the strongest Alabama Song Auburn Fan? I know down here here. In Fair hope is leaving for the day. The poor GUS Malzahn gets fired. Change down here please come back. We'll finish that thought How what an absolute pleasure for all of us to be able to listen to you and your thoughts come back soon. How thank you very very much thankful? Well he knows the territory doesn't he? We'll take a break more to come after this.

Single Salinas are hiring and delegating tasks but often we never make the full switch from working in our business to on our business as the leader of your company. Your job is to make decisions to steer the ship and do the essential work as a leader. That any other person can't do you need to fill that role. Everything else can be hired for often.

We're going to talk about how to make that transition to make sure that the day to day tasks that keep your business.

You need to take a look at your time management and that's our calendar. Look at your calendar. If you have an empty calendar that means you have no allocation to your time. Your time is three to be used any way you feel or how other people feel so. Your county needs to be filled with tasks that you should be doing as a leader as the founder of the company the CEO as whoever is actually steering your team so your job as the leader is to lead is to manage is to motivate is to build for the future is to have your vision and to also communicate that vision on a regular basis to make sure your team is actually getting better in terms of talent. And of course that your overall growth financially and in terms of your market share is trending upwards. This is your job as a leader. Okay as much as you want to fiddle with your website or answer. Customer service tickets. Those are really not in your job description now. That doesn't say that you don't do any customer service tickets ever just means that your sponsor bility's are not customer service tickets by jumping customer service conversations from time to time once a week once a month and just get a pulse of what's going on answer some questions to try to see what's going there and that's okay but. I'm not responsible for doing that if I don't do that There somebody in place to make sure that it's done now. There's one exception in terms of responsibilities. You should have one area of expertise that you may want to contribute to on a regular basis. Now you might be the brand of the business. The face of the business so doing interviews doing marketing. Maybe you are host of a podcast. The point here is that you are the face of the brand and you are contributing to the business in your special area of expertise that no one else does. For example. If you've got reed hastings who's the CEO and founder of Netflix? He does a lot of interviews. He's on talk shows he meets with innovation leaders so this is his area of expertise the communicator of the business so outside of leadership also doing that stuff so your calendar should be filled with activities that fulfil that role. This means you're carving out a job description for yourself. You're carving out a set of responsibilities of things that you need to do and measure your performance against yet. You GotTa make sure that you're performing to not just your team members so save for example. I say to myself part of my job as a leader is to build a great team that understands our vision of their motivated. But if I look at the last few years of my business and I have a lot of turnover and not. Many people have stayed in my company. More than a year I'm not doing a good job I need to make sure that whatever I give myself. I'm actually measuring myself against this. I know that. Hey I'm actually doing these duties that I put on myself if I'm not performing that means I'm in the duties and then I need to spend more time on those things so this is why you need to kind of make a job description for his list your responsibilities. I named a few today's episode and then I need to say what kind of tasks do I need to do to fulfill these responsibilities than those tests? Go in my calendar and I literally mean making boxes on your calendar Monday through Friday with tasks to do to fulfil your job description. But you might be saying Omar I have things I need to do the day to day the business and I don't have anybody to do them and they're not necessarily part of my role. What do I do well number one? You need to have an action plan to hire for those jobs. Whether it's one person or two or three people you can split those responsibilities if you can't afford a higher fulltime higher make sure you make a part-time higher or a freelancer just because you can't take all the things off your plate doesn't mean you can't take some some is GonNa help you perform better. Okay if you can't afford anything at all which is a reality. Sometimes when you're starting out then you need to plan out. When will you be able to afford? Don't just say I can't afford it. That's not gonNA think about that anymore. No we're are your profits going. When are you going to get to the point of you? Can AFFORD THIS POINT? What month look at the trends of your profits of your growth and Pencil that into your calendar. I need to start hiring for somebody a month before we can afford to that. Hey I can go ahead and make that higher when we can't afford it if you're still a little bit confused about like hey we should really be doing look at some. Ceo Some founders. That you really admire and see. What do they work on? What did they work on when they were a CEO's our founders and they don't have to be in big name companies they could be people that maybe are just a few years ahead of you small startups people that you know in in An AMIGA he can call them up as A. Hey tell me about your day tell me we responsibilities are love to be in your position. Sometime soon. It's always good to have some examples to work off so you can carve your own job description but of course you can look at your heroes. The big time CEOS who heard of jobs for example he was a big time leader. Here's the communicator. Of the business. But he also had his finger on the pulse when it comes to product He didn't create all the products or design them but he had a say in what they worked on. And what would work on next to? Who's kind of the visionary and the communicator of the business? If you look at the late j carpenter who is the founder of Burton Burton boards? He was a longtime snowboarder and even though he grew his company to a massive size with hundreds upon hundreds of employees he still was involved in the culture of snowboarding. So maybe he didn't try every snowboard. They created but had a singer on the pulse on the trends. He was very much big on supporting stubborn competitions. And who is a big part of some of the snowboarding teams that competed in the Olympics? Because in a way. He created snowboarding culture with Burton. So on top of his leadership skills he just also had this little air of expertise that he was a part of. So you can take a look at your heroes as well now. The key to this is once you have your description and you have your calendar and you have everything filled out. Is that you stick to it. You don't fall behind or fall back on old habits and one of the best ways to make sure that has happened is have some accountability and to have a mastermind group to help you with that. Master migrants are great because it allows you to hold each other accountable and it could be a group of three or four five people. Usually these are five You know entrepreneurs that are in the same kind of a stage in their journey as an entrepreneur the regular basis whether it's once a month or maybe even once a week some people meet that often and they hold each other accountable with what they're doing in their tasks and The challenges they're going through and that way when you face your mastermind group every month or so you can either feel good about what you've done or you can feel like wow. I got improve. I'm falling back on old habits and they can hold you accountable and you could tell them. Hey let me put my feet to the fire. Make sure that I actually do the things I set out to do. As the leader of my company. Also find things that motivate you to stick with. It could be something like understanding that I need to be there for. My team team needs me. I don't WanNa let them down. And if I'm a good leader of a good manager if I steer this business in the right direction it benefits everybody the counting on me. I gotTa make sure I do that. You can literally put a posted. No on your modern say might team is counting on me and that can just motivate you to stick to your plan sick to your job description. Guys got more on today's topic but before that let me give love to. Today's sponsor support for today's show comes from podium are looking to put together and sell an online course a downloadable of some kind or start a membership site one of the biggest challenges in doing that is the technology. How do you put together your sales pages in your course pages to make sure accesses secure collect payment? There's so many complications and there's so many complicated options out there. This is why we love podium. Podium is the easiest way to sell any kind of online course downloadable or start selling aimed membership. I'm speaking out of experience. I use podium to sell our courses what I love about. It is that it's clean. It's great looking and it's simple so I don't fiddle around. In fact I put together my last online course in about one hour. I'm talking about A to Z done. But don't take my word for give it a try. Four free sign up for a fourteen day trial over at portia dot com slash MBA again. That's podium P. O. D. I A. dot com slash. Nba To wrap up today's episode. You did really disciplined about what you work on every day. You need to clearly define what you're supposed to be working on the leader a business how to make sure you're working on it instead of doing things that you can hire for in one of the things that really helped me in. This transition is understanding. There are a lot of people out there that can do all the other tasks. I've been doing way better than I am doing it. They can take my business. When are the level? They can produce the better results in those areas. So why not get those people who do for me and I can focus on the things that only I can do. Which is the leadership. Which is the vision which is growing the team which is making sure going in the right direction. All that stuff and that's plenty okay. Part of the reason management C. Level people in big corporation gets paid. Big Bucks is because of the responsibility because of the pressure because of you know to be quite honest the stress and the time in the space to make the right decisions when they're so high stakes especially 'cause you're making big decisions as the leader.

Le Show For The Week Of October 7, 2018
"So choice. When you've got to know almost story Helo air call is important to us. Agency is on the job twenty four, seven leave a detailed message because not knowing is not an option singing upsurge. It calls that moment as the BG background with no limits within limits. Oh, last week. Now it is gentlemen news, the land of fifteen thousand princes freedom, loving friends in Saudi Arabia. This isn't by the way the battled Saudi Arabia. This is the under the reign of the modernizing. Liberalising crown prince. Mohammed bin Salman. Agents apparently linked to his regime, used spy technology from an Israeli firm NS technologies to eavesdrop on a Saudi dissident in Canada, the succeeding to the Israeli newspaper arts. The citizen lab research group says, has high confidence that NSO's Pegasus software. That's of course a flying horse. Had been used. Months ago to eavesdrop on a twenty seven year old Saudi exile Omar Abdul. Aziz Gordon the report picked up by the Canadian daily. The global mail of Toronto. The aim was to access his iphone abuellah's lives in Montreal and has been a prominent critic of the Saudi government on social media. Well, that's reason enough to any such use of eavesdropping technology by a foreign government would constitute illegal wiretapping. According to citizen lab director run deport games. The the case comes against the backdrop of a diplomatic crisis. Did you know about this between Canada and Saudi Arabia? Following. Hostile action. Sanctions financial, no criticism in August by the Canadian foreign minister. Christie Freedland three lint over the jailing of women's rights activists in Saudi Arabia. She called for their release who Saudi Arabia called her comments, violation of its sovereignty in responses. Spended diplomatic and trade ties ties. I said with Canada, it also brought home thousands of Canadian. Sorry, Saudi university students who had been studying in Canada. They will no longer learn to say a into lie. The researchers at citizen lab issued a warning that misleading messages about protests in Saudi Arabia were being used to target cell phones, including that of a regional Amnesty International researcher last month, university of Toronto. Research group claimed at least thirty six governments were making use of NS os services. It claimed that there was a high degree of probability. Saudi Arabia was among them suspected Pegasus software infections were found in Canada, Britain, France, Morocco addition, two of the countries like Turkey speaking of Turkey. The news this week. Not you noticed was that a Saudi journalist known as one of the country's most outspoken critics went missing disappeared after visiting the Saudi consulate in Istanbul to make arrangements. Related to filing a divorce before he can remarry. You say. Fears were raised about his safety. Jamal kashogi prominent Saudi commentator wrote a regular column for the Washington Post. Then he entered the Saudi Arabian diplomatic mission in Ankara Turkey more in Turkey than Ankara. For that visit his Turkish fiancee who waited outside for him for twelve hours said he'd failed to come out and call the police. Now on Saturday night, Turkish visuals revealed. They believe kashogi was killed inside the Saudi consulate Instanbul and his body later driven from the compound Turkish authorities, say they believe kashogi death was premeditated, and that Saudi officials had traveled to estan both from the Saudi capital of Riyadh after receiving word that the high profile Kurt critic plan to visit the consulate. Officials in Turkey are saying they're going to release today. Sunday evidence, they say, supports claims that he was killed shortly after he entered the consulate, including video footage and focus on a black car. Officials believe v a team of fifteen Saudis arrived on Tuesday to conduct the killing several officials alleged without offering evidence that he had. I been tortured then the team left Turkey soon afterwards. Now, aside from. The particular individual involved and whatever nastiness may have occurred to him. This suggests that the Turks and the Saudis who had previously been allies in the Middle East political jungle, maybe parting ways as the Turks. Move away from the United States, Audi, Arabia's, dear freedom of friend and move closer to Russia. Keep an eye on it if you can because it's news from outside the bubble, don't you know? Hello, welcome to show. From the of America from home and homeless, Santa Monica, California. I'm Harry Shearer. Welcome you to this week's edition of the show paying tribute to Jeff Emmerick the Jeffrey Merick passed away this week. He was along with George Martin sitting at the console sitting in the studio at Abbey Road and other studios in London as the Beatles revolutionized pop music in the middle and the middle, late nineteen sixties music that. Still still not going around to this day. And so on this program going back and listening to a little of. Jeff mix, eight track magic with the Beatles. They didn't release it on track. They recorded on a trick anyway, latest Jemma. How's that? House are sacred democracy doing. You know, the one that were protecting from the Russians, a coalition of election integrity groups, and security experts have told the department of homeland security in new letter. We strongly urge the department and the US election assistance commission who knew to caution states against using wireless modems in voting machines. Takes experts. Tell him that the kids could've told him. You say, we offer the following recommendations. They say in the letter. Voting system components from vote, capture and tabulation machines to election management systems should not be connected to the internet internet cellular network, or other public telecommunications infrastructure at any time, even temporarily from the time of manufacture until the end of life. Again, your kids could have told you that elect to election administrators should discontinue the electric transmission of election results from vote tabulation devices, adopting instead procedures for the physical delivery of election results. Physical, it's like analog either on digital media, such as memory cards, thumb drives are on paper to election management systems about just paper to the Guy. Forget this systems. Three cellular modems within voting systems should be physically removed, not simply disabled by software. Get this thing out of here. How many election administrators in how many states are gonna follow those directions. Before election day. Like a month from now. It's our sacred democracy ladies and Jim, we have to protect it from the. And now. Not general convinced peace, not an inspector. No steep season. In Specht to general. Oh, yeah. So remember way back during the Bush administration when one of the justifications for our military adventure into the graveyard of emp empires Afghanistan was well, we're, we're making progress for the women who have kenniston, they need our help. That's one of the reasons we're there. This from the special investigator inspector general for Afghanistan reconstruction. Little history, US aid, the main foreign aid part of the US government launched promote a two hundred sixteen million dollar five year program to improve the status of more than seventy five thousand women in all levels of Afghan society. It's the agency's largest single investment to advance women globally, Tom, all Galway. After more than three years in eighty nine million dollars spent US aid Afghantistan has not demonstrated whether the program has made any progress towards the goal of advancing women. USA Afghanistan toll the inspector general. It does not expect the Afghan government to sustain the program. This raises questions about whether promote is sustainable at all, and could put US aids investment our investment in jeopardy. Since the start of the program US aid Afghanistan made extensive changes to the four components. Performance indicators designed to measure progress from the original seventy eight. The modified thirty, two deleted twenty three and headed twenty thirteen indicators. For example, the agency reduced one program components target for the number of participants obtaining newer, better employment for twelve thousand five hundred. To eighteen hundred. Reduce the same performance indicator target for another program. I from twenty five thousand to twenty one thousand again to seventeen thousand five hundred. Despite the changes the agency made to the program it's concerning says it's better general that is of late 2017. Only one of the four components was meeting its targets. US aid Afghanistan didn't perform a baseline study until the more than two years of the program leaving the agency without a starting point from which to monitoring evaluate programs progress over its first two years. As of January of this year, no international donors had contributed funding to promote ficials from five of the seven donor countries. The inspector general spoke to said they cannot financially contribute to the program or that US aids assumption. The foreign donors we contribute to hundred million to the program was an unrealistic goal. An end of program performance indicator. Target from one component is for twenty one hundred women to find new or better employment with the Afghan government as of September of last year. Fifty five. Of the twenty one hundred women in the target fifty. Five actually did. The same components. Third year performance indicator targets to help four hundred twenty women find your bedroom, enrolls nineteen hundred women in the internship program and have nine hundred graduates as of September last year. Midway through that third here thirty nine win at found you better employment at four hundred twenty. The target nine hundred ninety. Five hundred rolled in the apprentice program out of nineteen hundred 1968 targeted hundred thirty two at graduated, not nine hundred. Concludes the inspector general. It's unclear whether the agency could deliver the opportunities at promise to women have ghanistan. I think it's unclear only to the inspector general and he's being kind. He adds given the program expended eighty nine million of its potential. Two hundred sixteen million US aid has an opportunity to reassess an adjust the program, take steps to enhance sustainability now, rather than waiting till it's over twenty or twenty one. I'd rather wait, you know, who knows what could happen. Dow Bank could take over and homeland security inspectors who made an unannounced visit to a private for profit immigration jail in California. Earlier this year found major violations of federal detention standards? Yes, we have them including cells with nooses dangling from air vents. Now it's not a racial thing. It's a suicide thing. Detainees losing teeth from lack of dental care and one disabled inmate left alone in a wheelchair for nine days. That's call meditation ton. The conditions are describing report issued by the homeland security office of inspector general, which ought to the facility and Dhillon to- California, which in Spanish means forward. It's over seen by ice. It's run by geo group which owns and operates seventy-one federal prisons and detention centers will can combine total of seventy five thousand beds. Sometimes there are people in. Jio declined to comment and referred enquiries to ice is officials say they've ordered a full inspection review the auto Llanto facility beginning later this month unless they can delay it further the report details, numerous alleged instances of sub-standard, Karen neglect by jailers prematurely and inappropriately lacked detainees in segregation cells without proper review. Actions opposes significant threat to detainees rights as well as their physical and mental health. Oh, that the auditors found gross violations of health and safety standards, including detainees were forced to wait weeks or months to see a doctor. Basic dental care was not existent. Inspectors could not find records of detainees receiving either cleanings fillings in the past four years. One Dennis told inspectors with no time for that. It was up to inmates to take care of their own oral hygiene. Despite a lack of supplies, supplies were overrated, ladies and gentlemen. On Monday of this week, the Washington Post reported on critical findings in separate the h. s. inspector general report that enumerated mistakes and the Trump administration's zero zero tolerance policy separating migrant children from their parents at the border, at least two other internal reports expected to be released in the coming weeks. Looking at that policies, failures. Trump's crackdown has strained detention facilities, putting renewed attention on substandard conditions at some, including that heightened risk of suicide among inmates held for lengthy periods awaiting court decisions or the poor tation. The nooses are a daily issue in very widespread said the auditors of out Alonzo. When we asked to contract guard to oversaw the housing units, why they didn't remove the bed sheets which used to make the news. They said it was not a high priority. The detainee in the wheelchair never left for nine days to sleep in a better brush his teeth. According to the report, we saw the banning in the toiletries were still in the bag from his arrival. We observed medical staff just looking in his cell and stamping his medical visitation sheet rather than actually evaluating him as required by ice and by required. They mean it's on a piece of paper somewhere. Dues of inspector general, latest gentleman, copyrighted feature this program. Now, let's look at little news about our friend, the atom. He's there to service. Until unless a nuclear power plant long considered to be the oldest in America shut down a couple of weeks ago, the victim of its age and inability to compete with newer cheaper gas fired power plants, this waster creek in New Jersey. Power down without incident for the final time after nearly half a century. Creek and the nine mile point nuclear generating system at a sweet New York. Both winded operation in December nineteen sixty nine. Both plants which are now owned by Exelon said they for decades considered voice to creek to be the older of the two. It's a somber day, says the vice president of the plant. We've watched emotionally reactor shut down for the very last time. Now only ninety eight remaining nuclear power plants in the United States according to the NRC, what's going to replace the power from hoist creek. Offshore wind? No, I'm not referring to Chris. Christie, he's not floating deadline, Tokyo the operator of Japan's, Rick Phuc plant says much of the radioactive order stored with plant isn't clean enough needs for the treatment of it's to be released in the ocean. Toke Tokyo power, and the government had said treatment of the water had removed everything except tritium. They call it tricky mortar actually wasn't. It still contains other elements, including I caesium and strontium caesium I hardly knew him and they're all radioactive more than eighty percent of the nine hundred thousand tons of water storage in those big tanks exceeds limit for radioactivity to be released into the environment. We had a pro prioritize processing large amounts of waters quickly as possible to reduce the overall risks as Junichi Matsumoto. So about one hundred sixty one thousand tons of the water has ten to one hundred times the limit for release into the environment. So not treated all that much and Seattle US government will test an implemented new system to capture and destroy dangerous vapors or vapours vapors dangers released the nation's most polluted nuclear weapons production site as part of a settlement agreement. The attorney general, the state of Washington told reporters, the agreement represents a major win for hundreds of workers who would getting sick for years while cleaning up the nation's nuclear waste at the Hanford reservation. He had added the US department of energy, didn't take the issue seriously and resisted putting protections in place. There's no way to sugarcoat this. He said. The energy department will for the first time test and new technology that the army general of the state of Washington called game changing. It would protect workers from the vapor exposures. From the never too late department. Just it's English, pressing. While you ask from southern California, this is Louis show analogous gentleman time for news of the warm, won't you. It won an award once somewhere, long time ago. Listen to the. Ask your folks. They probably remember earth than actually good news this week in news of the warm, say my want to sit down for this or if you sitting down, you might want to stand up earth, peat soils store. A lot of carbon about as much as currently flows freely through the air as a carbon dioxide. As a matter of fact. Scientists have been worrying that the planets grip on these carbon reservoirs could weaken as temperatures rise, unleashing carbon bomb. Pardon me that could further destabilize earth's climate system. A new study led by Florida State University offer some hope hurt. Earth's carbon reservoirs might not be as vulnerable. As experts have predicted in a global survey of people, ins areas defined by soil, like partially composed organic matter. Sounds like dinner researchers found out assigns of these carbon rich environments could show some level of long-term resilience even as temperatures continue to climb. The study suggests there more stable than we initially thought this mute the carbon bomb hypothesis. It's good news. The findings published in the journal nature communications with that bomb. When hurricane Florence slugged ashore, North Carolina coastal wetlands offered one of the best lines of defense against the hurricanes waves and storm surge. People who live in Louisiana know about that wetlands are your friend when it comes to muting or at least decreasing the ferocity of both wind and water damage, wind and water velocity which causes damage. Now, a new study predicts such wetlands will survive rising seas helping to buffer the world's coastlines and provide them any other ecological and economic benefits. Only if humans preserve the room needed for the wetlands to migrate inland, scientists, call it accommodation space, not recombination, not only has United Airlines study published in nature. Addresses a major uncertainty in how salt marshes and mangrove swamps will respond to sea level rise authored by an international research team. It was one US contributor. The main author from UK says, rather than being an inevitable consequence of global rising sea levels are findings indicate large scale. Coastal wetland loss might be avoidable. If sufficient additional space can be created that that would be done by increasing the number of innovative nature based adaptation solutions to coastal management with the coastal wetlands, get bigger, smaller in the future. Depends upon how much dry land lost to see level rise and how fast wetlands move into that submerged land. Study was motivated by a history of conflicting predictions concerning the fate of coastal wetlands in a warming world. So make room for wetlands. Everybody come on pick up. Hydrogen is seeing support grow in Europe as an alternative to oil and gas and over renewable energies like wind and solar. Late September, twenty five European nations back measure to increase hydrogen used to power factories drive vehicles and heat homes. Nonbinding agreement was signed in Lintz Austria, the back of tort. So really binding, no. Sorry, that delta increasing research into the technology and using existing gas grids to distribute hydrogen. The coalition sees it both as an alternative to fossil fuels and to solve the problem for trysofi generation caused by fluctuating supply of renewable energies. Of course, that would be dealt with. By improved battery technologies? Well, advocates. The hydrogen economy been pushing the fuel for years support has been slow. But to hydrogen fuel cell vehicles, hydrogen as an alternative power source does have growing business and government support in Europe as well as US Japan and China, fuel cell passenger vehicles much smaller than even electric vehicles. And sales hydrogen is gaining Goebel support for energy production and storage heating systems and fuel cell vehicles in the transport and public transit areas of our lives. Fish normally found in tropical waters as twice, been spotted off the west coast of Scotland. This happened to drink September fourth time this year that the tropical sunfish has been recorded by the way and dolphin trust up, Scotland way. The ocean sunfish is the heaviest bony fish in the world. There's a cocktail bet you can win the average weight of twenty two hundred pounds species was recorded by the crew of fishing boat, or if the north coast of Skye a sunfish was also seen off of Arden, American sunfish drift with ocean currents. They were once rarely seen it Scotland, but guess what? Boat operators reported more sightings in recent years, August the peak month, so far they live on a diet of mostly jellyfish. So I for one welcome our new sunfish overlords eat more eat more jellyfish whilst you and they swim at depths of up to nearly two thousand feet. So. Currently sunfish don't get the Benz. Even cowgirls get the blues, but sunfish don't get the Benz news, the warm, latest, gentlemen, a copyright a feature. This broadcast now little toast of news from outside the bubble. And it brings us to the subject. Trump who's had a good week in some respects, but not in this respect. His Scottish golf clubs, not the implements used for hitting the ball, the country clubs lost about six million dollars last year. The company blamed economic downturn. I thought things were going well. I thought this was a hot economy and lower oil price. They blamed as well. Really. The Trump Turnberry resort. Lost about five in the fourth consecutive year of losses for the club, Eric Trump. The rector of the parent company wrote, this was one of the most robust financial results in a decade for the resort. He's bragging on losing. So much losing to get tired of losing. He wrote that the directors expect the club have operating profitability in the short to medium terms phrase. I think he nicked from Ulan mosque. He says that resort is going to become Scotland's leading destination for weddings, conferences and events. Also golf played them. The travel section of the newspaper, the telegraph gave the resort eight out of ten rating describing the gold bathroom fixtures and chandeliers installed as part of the new redecoration as quote, Las Vegas by the sea. The other resort Trump International golf links, Scotland lost couple minutes last year, lower than the little bit lower than the loss of the year before. Explaining losses. Eric Trump wrote the crash price, an economic downturn experienced in the north east of Scotland, has resulted in a drop to local spending. He also wrote Trump internationals reputation and status with tour operators and agents across Europe. Erica and further afield continues to expand unquote. I wouldn't have thought people in northern north eastern Scotland would be the target market anyway. Rather tourists from abroad, but that's, you know, don't look at me. I'm no Trump news from outside the bubble, latest copyrighted feature of this very program. And of course, the other news in Trump world much of it was favorable this week. Of course, most recent good news for the Trump administration was the senate's vote on Saturday to confirm by not the narrowest, but almost an hour was possible margin. I still believe, narrows in history. I think the nomination of. I call him part Brett cavenaugh to be an associate Justice of the United States prem- court after all the the stuff after all the stuff including that FBI investigation that. Reports indicated throughout the week was limited in scope, and the administration and the Senate Judiciary committee kind of played ping pong with who drew up the set of limitations on the scope of that investigation. I believe they only talked to six people. I think that was the final number don't hold me to it. I'll be. I'll be get Attling before you get to me the other good news for the Trump administration, of course, was the. Good economic report on Friday, lowest on official unemployment rate in forty nine years, of course that doesn't take into account all the people who've left the labor force. That was a point that Donald Trump used to make when he was running against Barack Obama when Barack Obama bragged about the low and appointment, right. Well, what about the people who left the labor force doesn't talk about that anymore? I don't know why, but. The biggest baddest news for President Trump this week was the story that the New York Times thought got so much less attention that it deserved that republished the entire story today. Sunday originally came out a Thursdays paper, but you know, Kevin Kevin, Kevin, Kevin. It was a very detailed exhaustive story about the Trump family finances through the decades and all of the MacIntosh that the father Fred Trump used to divert money out of his company. Thereby avoiding taxation and diverting it to the pockets of his kids in such a way to avoid paying gift tax as well. Main recipient. Of course, Donald J Trump and the remaining piece of good news was the announcement at the beginning of the week. Of a replacement for the NAFTA free trade treaty among US Mexico and Canada, Canada. Sorry, replaced by a new or fairly new agreement among the three countries called the u. s. m. c. a. that is US Mexico Canada, their reports in the media, following the announcement that there was grumbling within the administration that the new name wasn't as catchy as the old one. Week for the first time, the teams get their projects over the finish line. But as the businessman turned chief executive discovering after every finish line is a new beginning line general Kelly, my favorites chief of staff. Whereas time I looked sir, you're only staff at the moment. Won't argue with that, especially today, why? But is this don't take off the boss day on.

Now now you want to sell naming rights to the court building to Coors or somebody. Now you making incredible sense. Not this. I like you still be racing to be crowned. It was grabs her, but I have a desk and I have of work for today and only one desk to do it on. So not my fault. Look, you do have a Tesco, right?

I'll take pleasant for very unpleasant jeopardy without the questions. Can you get him in. You don't wanna talk to him on the phone on the phone. He can hang up. Can you do it considerate done, Jeff?

Wouldn't you want you witnessed life? And by the way I never called you dumb redneck. That's fake news. You're a very intelligent redneck. Thank for once in your life. You wouldn't wanna make Donald J Trump happy. Let's question. It isn't a frigging answer, sir. I have to say at least pleased and relieved that you've read down the profanity's last time we spoke, everybody's taping millennia thinks stuff, padded print. I'm here as part of my team to do whatever it takes to Hughes yourself. Decoys yourself. That would be when you d recused, wouldn't it. I need a new word, right? I can't do that took an old. Yeah. Yeah, yeah. An f. Ovan Bob Woodward I said that whoever you're talking to, okay, look, Sheree Asli Jif that Howrah Bill. How're story in the failing New York Times which isn't failing fast, nearly fashion for me. Believe me the big over story, bet your daddy's money and nothing less than nothing. So Jeff, you're an intelligent redneck. What do you think is to fake reporters loose documents just went fishing just called up a damned owed Republic outta the freaking phone book. I'm not quite sure where you're going with this Rufus k do fish. This was leaked by mullet. It's too long ago. They tend to the statue of limitations.

Streaming In Place: TLOK S02E0910
"To the television. Streaming Of Car. Hello everybody and welcome back to streaming a place. Today, we are talking about the legend of Cora book two spirits, episodes nine and ten, the Guide and a new spiritual age and there are lots of things to say about these episodes but none of the matter except Iro. Ira I seriously got a little misty guys just watching it when he first shows up and I knew he was coming ain't forgot it was this specific episode. But it's just like. At Alison were you similarity emotional when when i? Really got me and. Tom, very. Clearly. New Re remembered that it was coming because as we get closer to that same, he kept doing that thing where apologies that you don't get the visual eight listeners where he would like look over at me and then look back at the TV and then look. And then look at TV waiting for my reaction I was like what the Hell is about to happen and it was not a disappointment was definitely the kind of thing that you wanNA stare weirdly at your partner as she's about to see it happen So yeah, that was a great reveal all the la I will admit that I still feel it sort of Pang of loss when you hear that that's not quite right you know Anyway. Yes. What a great great reveal and surprise appearance in an episode that I already found very moving. It would've been great just any repair return of IRA but having like Cora regressed in her at least her spiritual form to baby corre just like even better is even sweeter and even more precious knoll were you similarly affected? Yeah. And I had I had completely forgotten that I wrote pops up on like. And then like at like the next preceding like the tea party stuff came back to me as soon as he showed up just went. Oh, right. I forgot how good this part is because why wouldn't Iro be like a perfect spiritual guide? As someone who in the physical world could see occasional bits of spirits circulating around as we saw very early in less turbans run. And having that kind of enjoyment and everything and haven't seen him come back and like you said, Kate having be not with. Teenage horror but with Little Baby Cora with her little child belly in the, you just want to blow me grass vary on. Having heard there. With Iro to really drive home this kind of. Development this idea of. She's out of her depth and everything but here's here's Uncle Iro. Give her a t and advice in all forms regardless of if it's Real world spirit world or the afterlife uncle I was here with the teapot that was your teapot. Just it's so good everything with Cora as little kid is also really really good but the Iro- thing is just it's just golden. It makes me very happy. When I was talking with my parents about the previous said my mom mentioned. Should talk to them about this before we recorded last time. I did not make the connection we were doing you know joking about a one being a very Ladan did not make the connection that of course, he he he puts her in the pot. It's all. Oh Jeannie. Yeah. That's a good point. Either magical spiritual friend and Anna in a pot. So, having it come back here and it's just so celebrity with how frustrated we've been with the season in how Like the season has you know lost its way you know a bit a bit a lot. It's not been good. Until recently having like it's like, I. We get do your mere back and then we get Uncle Ira back and it's like, okay, we're we're going to be okay now and now there's only a hand. There's only former episodes left in the season. So it's like it's like, okay the season can start now wait. The season can end now and that we can do season three Were there. Other takeaways you guys had these episodes well, allison had a really key takeaway that I think we should discuss. Let's that. Lapse. Oh I. Love Genera- I. Like I already did. Kiernan Shipka and Also. You know she's tiny air bender childlike. How could I not love her but in these episodes I just was really taken by the writing of that character and the way that she's. Very grown up about her own abilities and her father's abilities, and she shows a lot of emotional sensitivity toward basically everyone and Sometimes. Kit as Avatar the last air bender showed sometimes kids have to grow up really fast that doesn't mean that they're not still children, but we should be able to tell stories about kids who meet. The moment when they have to and who conduct themselves with a lot of thought and maturity and sensitivity and man what a great character and both episodes But when I texted the both of you that was during the guide where. She so great. She's just she's just a really really great character and I was so excited to get to follow her journey through both of these episodes and despite the fact that I text you during the first one, it's really the second one. Hit me most completely. And as Marcus says, she knows how radios work. Very. Is Very helpful when you run into when she tongue and and he's been misinformed by one of his own. Kerr angry about that foxy assistant being wrong about how radios work. A little bit who lives inside the box who makes music occasionally sounds. Yeah. So good yet for me. The first episode I enjoyed it while it's happening just so impatient to get to the second episode guest I'm very edge back very, very glad that Cora, is you know studying and working with you you know just interacting with you again however, do we really need to spend an entire episode on this on I mean can't you get there like as subplot and not as the main? No. Okay So that was my only issue with with the first with a guide but having near the with the episode presents this new thing. It doesn't feel all that much of a stretch because it's so connected to spirit portals opening and everything else. It doesn't feel like Let's just do nor thing in can very convenient chosen one spirit guide saying happening here it it works because of the handling of this episode. Also because we haven't spent that much time with Nora so far. So you know that that I really do commend the the writers for. The structure for this. For that. But I do. Think, we could have gotten there quick. I like the sensitivity that we see from Genera but also from Kaya I think the sibling dynamics with with Cayenne and Bumi F been. Mostly played for last pippen interesting, and well done so far and I think that continues in this one I forget exactly what happens with them for the rest of the season. But some kind of looking forward to rediscovering it did you guys have similar frustrations in the moment or were you like I mean allison do you didn't know what was coming? So were you more in it than I was? I mean it felt like set up, but it felt like good character set up so that didn't really bother me so much. But I also agree about the sibling dynamic amongst the adults this time and in particular. BOOMY who is bonkers. Really like I think is surprisingly well adjusted considering how often he has to be like I'm not dead. I'm bender like hello, you're I. Am I have accomplished things without your magic powers. Because, men would that give me a complex, but he seems to be doing okay, which is great and we have seen no evidence of therapy in this world. So there is a secret Dr Linda somewhere and. I don't know the just secret it away on an Air Temple Islands. That's where Linda would be hanging out with a bunch of Baby Sky Bison You know I I think he must have gotten to that place by himself, which is grit or you know with the help of his mom quickly help of his dad but Bumi is good. Anyway my point is I. Think because I didn't know what was coming I was able to just engage with this moment of character growth through tenzin and self awareness and the dynamic with Kyon Genera was really compelling. So I was still very in it but obviously, there's a clear winner in these two episodes. Yeah I think that's fair. I think that there's a real nice sort of solidification almost of the tens and Arc Year of that weight that pressure being son sort of and how he sort of been. For years hiding failure of not being able to happen to the spiritual world for years Penalty going ways you've been meditating for hours in these chambers what have you been doing weekdays for dance? Trying to access the spiritual my dear, and it's just it's really delightful of. He feels all of this weight and burden that he can't be honest about these things. And I think that there's something really beautiful and sad about that for a man of his age that he still feels kind of shame But. that he also feels like he can't share that with anyone else and I do would appreciate like the episode giving that more space but I do like how they. Then into like the larger discussion that's been happening around vacation Tanzanian of. His relationship with Kyon Bumi and they're really their collective relationship with aim who's become just a really beautiful offscreen presence. In. A lot of ways this season in particular for the for the three of them that I think works and benefits really well that he just kind of hasn't popped up. To talk to them deal with them. He is an offscreen off far off presence almost and I like that. So it all works really well and gap. bonkers man and Alison I can't wait for you to get less last Rabuka just gets really borders good. Oh, I'm so glad because right now the bonkers of boomy is with sustaining me while we're dealing with all of the crappy city stuff because my my known precious Olen is just not. Done Anymore I. Miss Speak. It's actually in the next it's actually in one of the two episodes. Well, good even better tomorrow. Yeah. Great. Great. Market says this. All just illustrates how poor the city plot stuff is. Real is still really doesn't work and yeah. When Marcus with a through the channels like Oh. Yeah. I. Guess we should talk about the fact that Moscow gets arrested. Okay I mean wait a let down. So much of the things we liked season one, season two, you know like. season season two is not doing by land it's not doing well by Oh, it's not doing all by Asami these are very dumb things with the city. I mean I know how the city stuff shakes out. So I'm basically just ignoring it. As like. I mean, honestly it sort of the best way to think about the city stuff is out a lot of it really ramps up over the next four episodes in very particular ways. But it also just kind of. Slide. So much of this season is stashing wishing other things that they're going to do more of later across particularly across seasons three and four which are basically the same season for all intents and purposes when I keep thinking back on them But the season's just. So transitionary from a season that wasn't for season that wasn't supposed exist it's doing a lot of like. Here's what we want to do. So just treat the city stuff as just kind of like really poorly like Greens that I have to eat. But that I don't want to. But I know that my my stomach will be happy that the Greens are there my tastes funds just don't enjoy them. Lovely. appetizing. Any thoughts. On, the city stuff you know what? I based on what Knowle's saying I feel like maybe I don't need to add to what I've already said because if if what's happening here is that we are setting up future. In it's just that they're being set up poorly and not that they're completely wasting a number of really interesting characters and also they're definitely wasting people like. Like I, don't understand how you have. Bat Woman. And you do nothing with her. And then have her act in ways that make no sense for any human being. Including that woman. I don't understand how you have. Lynn and just straight up don't use her except her be Bat Democrat demonstrably bad at her job. And then Maka like I just and I don't care about. Marco. So like I'm not so disappointed that he's getting a crappy storyline, but should be and poor lynn is just like running around in his little outfit being a tool and like that. Is Funny but it would be. Funnier and more interesting if it was inserted into a storyline that was be like if. Like if he had gained something from I, do have something to say if he had gained something from this experience beyond wealth like if he felt. Self worth if he felt like he was making a contribution if he thought that he was affecting change for the good or even if it was just wealth and he was sort of reveling and they were connecting it to their impoverished childhood, and now he's living in the lap of luxury. Then that makes the dynamic with way more interesting. But it's like they're not acknowledging that like they have that scene both saw me in Berlin or like no, he's good. He's helping us and then that's it doesn't seem to cause any real friction in the relationship. It doesn't make them seem to question anything The whole thing with Asami is like what? I know none of that makes any sense. So. my point is. I'm glad that maybe it's just. Badly executed early steps for something else and I'll just. Trust that maybe eventually at least some of it will be better is that a fair hope for me to have all I feel like it's a pretty fair hope to have at least in regards to some of the characters. Lynn in particular Front Man I was going to be filled with rage if not got another good Linda Fox, no Lynn actually comes to the forefront a lot in seasons three and four in for a very ver- for very specific reasons But yes, she's much more at the center of things I honestly can't remember what happens with Moscow Asami in next to. Boy I can remember some really cool stuff that's going to happen thinking. There's a lot of good stuff that happens. But like the specifics like I've said, repeatedly of like, I remember the villains for seasons three and four I don't remember like a lot of the really specific stuff that happens in three and four like the actual plot machinations in that kind of thing. But so but Lynn I remember very specifically comes to the forefront. In much more aggressive ways. I'm looking forward to some of those How does Asami after the experience of finding out that her father who she loves so dearly? Was a Baddie not. How does she? How did she say various my friend that he's giving me money can't be bad like. How how does you just being an inherent distrust people? I saw me at this point but she hasn't learned that lesson. Well, she's also. At, other points in the show proven that she has an intelligent discerning person. How is it that none of that? Like none of? How How is the woman that intelligent not able to go actually, you know what business wise it doesn't make sense that he would do something this underhanded because he has effectively taking control of everything while that's a really good point macro and micro- it just doesn't make any zooming hints make any sense Asami is the one that I fear. I'm going to leave the season deeply this or the show deeply frustrated about I'm I'm I'm worried. Okay. Well, we'll. Have more thoughts on that in the next week or tail does anybody WANNA drink anything. But. God. But we should a little bit about the spirit world stuff because I, a couple questions curious guys thought about it. I liked some of it. I liked it a lot of it. But I I was not happy with poor fluffy foot. I'm not coming back to the to the to the good side. By the end hopefully that's coming I. don't remember the specifics. Also, why did the dogs become? Good and then bad and then not able to be good but the. Verdict did not. The bird flu away remember the dog state. In the bird flu away and then came back. Yes. That is why okay that makes more sense. Thank you. Know you'll do you guys think about our various transformations in the spirit world. well, I loved mere cat manner that was really fun. So angry and we're I like that it feels as though the spirit world is somehow shaped by whoever goes to it. I. Don't know how much of that I'm just projecting and how much of it as a different nation style and what else but it was very cool to sort of see. In addition to is regressions sort of what she's seeing in this place as opposed to what Genera is seeing and And I. Thought that was really cool and evocative watching it sort of jumped back and forth between the two of them I think the choice to have cora actually physically regressed was released mart. It made her feel much more vulnerable but I think there's also something. Keno like when you're doing yoga or meditation or anything that's about connecting with your body and your spirit whatever they often talk about going back to a child's mind So it makes sense that record move forward she would have to sort of reach this part of herself where she could be I'm the Avatar deal with it with like without all of the that storm and drawing and finding away even if it was a little leg. Easy and a little on the nose bringing light. To the two creatures that she encountered who seem to be creatures of darkness by virtue of not assuming that they're inherently bad I think is really interesting So yeah, I really like spirit while but I don't understand I. Don't understand the Mir cats. or? I don't know what they are but man, they were upset it was very funny and I liked it a lot but they were gosh they were salty and and the last point that I wanted to make is I appreciate that in as Knowles said earlier in the ongoing sort of reality of Angus, this really potent important kind of mournful offscreen character much more complex than some of our onscreen characters. we have sort of reckon with the choices that he made in his life and how they're affecting coronavirus specifically with the library, and in that case to hangs credit I, really feel like that Sokha's fault. Like what happens two Genera? If you really want to put the blame them whereas more socks assault than eggs fault but it is still their choices and And it's interesting to sort of feel those echo through the show without having to specifically refer back to them. I liked that they sort of let you draw those conclusions. Yeah. I really liked hervas disturb world and I like how they represent that from light corals regression to like you said, Cape the way that it kind of splits itself basically like you get that big scary swamp forest. Right next to the beautiful meadow that your is like chasing butterflies through. Even though they're like right next to each other, they're not right to each other because like you say, Alison like it's It's influenced by like your openness and your emotionality but very also specifically like the avatars emotionality as the bridge between these two worlds, her influence on both is outsized. So I think that's really potent also like ways in which they like have corre heading off on her journey up the mountain and she takes one step suddenly she's like yards away from IRA and IRA's just waving. Yeah and it's such a beautiful little moment of euros or any type of not type of thing While speeding it up. so It just all works really well, but it also really plays into the whole. It's a dream state kind of thing while. Rules because there there are rules anything still kind of can go because like as as core learns, she can't bend because she didn't go through a portal g went the through meditation and you go through their through your physical bodies is not there. So you don't get the band. Which? Takes advantage. I love that moment with that you mentioned null where she turns around and all of a sudden she's far away such a lovely way to capture the the lesson of. So often the most important step is the first one of the decision to go as the up most difficult part, and as soon as you are resolved and begin the journey. That's. Such a huge leap in your progress that you need to make to achieve your. Desire desired results such. It's a simple way to do it and and having your own the do because I could that could be scary and it's not. It's it's very You Know How court reacts to that moment is I think very. Little Chunk of the episode goes. So yeah, Alison did you have any other thoughts about these episodes in either moments you wanted to to shut out I? Don't think. So I do want to say though that I feel like it's been a while since we've had a conversation about this Cinematic Universe televisual universe where we were talking about it in this way I'm sure we did at some point in season one and obviously we did a little of that with beginnings But this felt like a much more avatar kind of conversation which is encouraging So I'm I'm. I'm hopeful. A- which is great. It's it's very unlikely for season three is my feeling right? It's the discussions they're having in this episode at mean a specific Guerrero but around the themes of the season I think really work and it's like. This kind of stuff they needed to start seating in at the beginning of the season that they didn't for some reason. But when we're getting to the the the the. The spare world's end the conversation around You know they're basically what the show is trying to say around look for the late and feed that because if you look for the darkness, it will always be there it was never going to go away. So instead you need your energy into fighting for the light rather than fleeing from the darkness It's really it's really successful and like you know I would agree with what you're saying Alison like you're saying, it's very much more Avatar Ari than at least what Cora has been for most of this season. Yeah I think one of the other issues is that locks machinations. Ultimate goal is still even sort of like big It's obviously it's let Baccio out but to what end type of deal. And like what he's hoping to achieve by doing all of that is so really unclear and it was never really clear even at the start and when you think about like a Ma on even if there's a secondary agenda behind the whole anti bender. It's still feels really solid something to really grasp onto whereas knots been shrouded in just wait what are you doing like? Why does any of this matter? What's what's the deal here buddy? And why are you forcing kids to be situations? It's not okay. They don't WanNa water bend in a big bubble. Yeah Aubrey Plaza is GonNa be bringing her brother back now. Much better sister than the data's Dad. Yeah. The just. So many things here that they should have been doing it to begin seasons I'm glad that they are doing them now better late than never better better late than number Marquez I think he might be duped in thinking he will gain power Nevada escapes versus chaos everywhere. Yeah when We watch the start of watching these episodes and they had the. Previously. On montage they get to go on walks plan is just like you did not establish that you have not established that voice over person. Like, I'm glad you're skipping ahead but like come on. You should have heard this. Yeah Elson any predictions on a relax us. Thought processor plans or I mean. I feel like like maybe. These folks are better at setting up villains than they are at. Their sort of end game 'cause it. was I suppose surprised they he was such an asshole to his kids because I was not surprised. Because he's he's kind of like really dismissed them. Yeah. I. I. He's the worst he's yet and You know I are the Fox's giving bad information on everything because it seems like an alliance that like even given. All of what happened with Sokha is still not really wise. I was so it was like Oh. Why don't you come on come on a walk I? Mean this is an actual child. What's your deal I wanted like you so much just because I like allesandro so much. So I'm giving you a lot of space here. You just keep disappointing me. Knoll any final thoughts on these episodes? know they're both really solid I'm glad mirrors back for the rest of the show like it's all near all the time accept no substitutions. While our episodes for tomorrow to close at the week are episode eleven night of a thousand stars and twelve harmonic convergence. Okay. I assume that night of a thousand stars telephone yet and Ankara is raising money. To for through a Gofundme me to fund a trip to the spirit world to try to save. Jawara. But she's got a she's got to get to the portal so that she can Ben. So she needs a go fund me. So night of a thousand stars and they give boomy the late night slot and that's why he really goes. Totally, MSN, it's this is a and Berlin hosts, and this is a way in which Berlin can contribute because obviously now he is the celebrity of the group even though the avatars grow. So that is is what's going to I mean I assume that's pretty straightforward. Down what's implied by the title and I guess at the Harmonic Convergence, what's going to happen is all the planets are going to line up. Against the Sun maybe yes that's my. That's my big prediction. Marcus I would have guessed that harmonic convergence would be the finale interesting. Yeah. because there's two more episodes after days so. Okay. Well. NOLA WANNA tease anything or you good no. I already teased the booby stuff so true true. Okay. Fair enough. Well, that will wrap record has for today then thank you. Marcus for hanging with us in the chat is always thank you everyone for listening will be back to Tomorrow. To Round Out Week Twenty, seven, seven, twenty, six. I think we can be six, but I honestly sixers last week and it was really short which is why right? Yeah. Okay. Okay. Sorry. Didn't mean to break us all there at the end everybody ag again thank you for listening. We'll back.

I do too busy. That's why it's cheers to business. I was thinking about you the other day because on a couple of companies that's a CFO. On I had it's like I have teams right even in the company's Ion and to the teams are having birthdays this week and I thought. Y'All I WANNA get a gift certificate and that was a big thing as we went to go. Do get go ahead by gift certificate now whether you give it later or use it for curbside and I need to but you know. I don't know where they live so fair. Hope or here. Do you have a universal gift? Card? I'd love to be able to do that But we don't and you know at something that we talked about years ago and actually there was a group that the Jason just outside of my Entities that Kinda put something together like that but it it never came to fruition but I would love to put that idea together it would be great. 'cause whatever whatever spreads the business through my businesses is good. Yeah exactly so why not cry Love Cross Promotion? Anyway so if I have these ideas. Because you my brain's crazy and so no. I want I need to for this week. Okay right well I can figure something out okay. Case on a piece of paper and may get a little more formal than that. I appreciate your managers. No said it was cool right. Nobody else says that right. So you got all these restaurant and starting another one and then covid hits say you represent how many thousands of business restaurant owners across this country and across the world. You know you and I were friends. And we've talked. And it's like get off the ledge we can make this off the ledge but it is exactly like that now that we're back open it's not as it's not as intense but you know right there in the beginning we didn't know what was going. Go on and then we got to the total shutdown which they cut us at that the knees I it. Was You know there was a lot of panic in me especially with all my people and you know like you were saying you know my industries really took the brunt of it for sure. Well I worried about you guys. When they came out with even we knew the most awful. Let's shut down you know then there's something for curb. Saab then you've got all the you know. Think about the food. That's been sitting there. And then when they sit fifty percent capacity and I would I mean if people weren't truly prepared a new really good business person but there's a lot of business restaurant owners that are not good business people and so ultimately over the long term. They were probably going to fail. Anyway I hate to say that but it's true in any any business cares restaurant. I said the ones who get business people and they were pretty prepared. You know they can take a hit. Then they a fifty percent occupancy some of them that's not enough to pay your cost it. It is not well. I'll tell you this right when when we got the where do we had to shut down and we could do the curbside. I continued of course the bars were closed. But my three restaurants. Bonan barreling the both lucky locations. We continue to do the to go in the curb side stuff but it was. It was minimal. And then I you know with all my staff they were trying to rotate shifts in the front of the House. Folks rely on tips and gratuity. So there was. It was none so finally after about two weeks we had to sit down and we pulled the plug and told everybody to get on unemployment and and that's what we did. We had there was a waiting game. Well you know things were coming out so fast that nobody understood for like they said employer goes on and fouls unemployment. It won't affect your rate. Don't let your suitors. People thought they were doing good. Then but then they came out with the Pe- and said but you gotTa have the headcount said we're GONNA look at a couple of things of that You know I post every day on my CFO consulting services facebook page. I post anything new that I can find an look every single day. 'cause I'm I'm helping people play this game and I've always said I can play any game. The wolves this affects my businesses. Ma Cfo Consulting clients. You know everything that I live in breathe. It's affecting so I want to know how the Games played me too. I said we're GONNA we got a little bit information on that and the founder the CPA founder payroll bald actually sent out an email about something relatively new in the paycheck. Protection Program Flexibility. Act All right so a Democrat and a Republican actually came together and I know down and they have put in this act. You're not hearing about it on the news any of the news. 'cause I watch them all you know so how come people aren't talking about this. I see I'm having spread the word. Now here's what the press release says there are five points. Say I think you can identify with each one of these and this act is going to the flexibility act. I think is for restaurant. Business owners all right so number one. It allow forgiveness for expenses beyond the eight week covered period. I think that's used because it doesn't work for you because you weren't allowed to open back up but you already had your money for four weeks right and we had the P money and I. I didn't do anything for over a week because I was scared to spend any of it not knowing the criteria for forgiveness right so you know. Let's arm already have already lost already time right. There exactly employs trying to get people back which you know. That was the Second Week. They didn't want to come back right button. Oh all right said number possibility of making tips now. A lot of make two thirteen an hour. So I mean you know. There's no way they're coming off. Eight seventy five a week for that exactly and I can't match that and then they tell you to turn them in. Yeah brutal I so number to eliminate restrictions limiting non payroll expenses. What that means is the target. Is You have to spend seventy five percent of the money you can do one hundred but seventy five percent on payroll so they wanNA open that back up to or less than seventy five percent if you just can't get your people back or you feature fifty percent capacity doesn't mean you need fifty percent of the servers. Well I mean that you know that kind of goes. Who's a part time and a fulltime doesn't it? You know I don't know. I said number three eliminate restrictions that limit the loan term to two years so they won't extend it okay from one year to two years. No it is to your yes look it was okay because it's it is a two year loan but it's deferred for six months and then you make eighteen payments right. They want to take that out farther. They want you to have two years to pay it back for woods. Not Forgiven dump stretching the actual payment part another six months exactly one. Yes okay all right helps number four ensure full access to pay tax deferment for businesses that take the p Lens I what that means. We see him. Both should not be considered double dipping. Okay bring it down. Okay if you take money from the ideal thousand per employee right so whatever. They give you forgiving over there. You don't get forgiven on the. Pcp side said this is saying that's true. Oh wait a minute okay. Keep going okay. That is true though. Back OF MY HEAD. GonNa blow off here in a minute back to the ledge window right. So if I've got five thousand dollars off the ideal I got twenty thousand dollars off. The all. Twenty thousand is eligible. Be Forgiven but if I do that then the five thousand of the ideal is GonNa need to be paid back. You get twenty total whatever. Your loan approval was. That's the told forgiveness you get if I say I'm not paying the five thousand dollars a bag and to get fifteen thousand of the twenty thousand forgiven of the PGA. Okay you know. I heard something along those lines and you know my question was you know because I got. Pcp money for all my entities and the paperwork for that was was written just like alone with the actual scale and I mean you know I went into China it's You know my first thoughts were that this couldn't happen because you can't just add money to to a contract that I just signed. Yes you can and get this. How is that possible because they wrote it? You WanNa play my game right the my hand. Okay here's the ledge all right. So here's something else. The time that you've had this money interest started to the bake at when you when he since the document that interest started to have it all forgiven and still some interest to the bank. And that's going to come everybody words you know. So what about what about the end of this thing that everybody once again? You know that they haven't been clear on all the criteria for all this forgiveness stuff and then you know you put these people in these in these horrible you know positions financially and. I mean you know then. They know they're going to have to get a lawyer to to bail themselves out and he's GonNa create a whole another mass mall. I'M GONNA go hand get bumper stickers that say Ignorance what is it about ignorance not knowing the bomb yeah? That's what's going to happen because there's too much and people can't no. There's no way all right all right. Let's get back to the flexibility at number five extend the rehiring deadline to offset the effect of enhanced unemployment insurance. What all right I got this one. Do receive the forgiveness a business. Must we hire employees by deadline of June thirtieth see? It used to be June twentieth. They changed that I said now is June. Thirtieth however the enhanced unemployment insurance created through the cares act higher than the median wage in forty four states again getting back to West Ron owners words to thirteen all right. Many businesses have reported an inability to rehouse employees because they're making more than unemployment the deadline to rehire employees under the PP should be extended to align with the expiration of the unemployment insurance mind-blowing. That makes too much damn common sense but is that different for every single employee. I mean you gotTa have a target date of sometime. It's gotta be up. At some point. Everybody got P. money at a different time. Just it's it's almost like you know when you're sitting here telling me that the rehired dates had to be June thirtieth out to me. I just throw that out the window because I'm like as soon as I got the money I've started to try to bring people back so telling me giving me a just a a date on the calendar that if you way to that date to have the headcount then you have. It's been seventy five percent of the money. Well I chicken and Egg Right. Good bad pretty ugly. Yeah well that pretty ugly go together. Yeah I set up a formula you know. I took my the the amount of money I got and of course very simply you know and I think you know you and I talked to you about it. You take the total amount you you get twenty five percent of it and take seventy five percent. I mean that's what you're spending on bills what you're spending on on payroll. Then you take the eight weeks and figuring out what you need to spend in there and I mean it was pretty cut and dry it is pretty cut and dry but then you have the whole scenario of of in my industry. I can't bring people back at two thirteen an hour so have to figure out of the number of people that bring back and offer them more of a flat wage and like we said earlier to come back and clean yes to paint or to do whatever we did so we did that up until two weeks ago and then you know we got to open up at fifty percent you know. We're doing fifty percent of the numbers for sure. So I mean it's definitely showing and we're you abide until all the cove rules and things like that but that's where I am that's where we are. Okay it's up perfectly actually. Yeah all right so I just want to let people know that anybody that wants the the lane to contact you representatives. We check out the show on our website or on the facebook or me. If you know me personally or Johnny Gwen or null And I'll send you the link to this income. I'll be happy to just say you because what it does. He shouldn't be the cliff notes. This is the cliff minutes I said because what it is is in the link that am maybe we can put it on the tag when we post the show is is franchise action network but you just put your name your address information in and it will automatically send an email that's all you have to do. Nibbles sent an email based on your address to your all your representatives house and Senate today all right. I'M GONNA send it to you again. Don't tell me you didn't read my email. Did nail recovery. You are seasoned at this. You know we have talked about the liability. You have to have for your liquor license that has to stay in place. You can't lose it or you lose your license yeah. They gave a list of the the bills that you could pay. And they were pretty specific about it and it was just rent Power and then phone got added an Internet transportation. Define what transportation and then. I was under the impression that transportation is just going to be your gas whatever expenses you had for gas so I don't know employees get auto loans. Yeah Yup then. That'll be forgiven. Who knows yeah? No we like you were saying is that I brought up was You know my liquor liability and so there's also been a big question of that people have asked me about just insurance. In general we have to have to maintain general liability of something would happen the fire or anything like that after be covered which is expensive in itself and then You know I in the in the restaurants and bars. I'm required by the state of Alabama to to maintain liquor liability insurance right when that goes back to part of what that flexibility act is. That's going to open it up to help cover some of that other stuff and stop limiting seventy five percent on pay. Well when you can't get people to come work which right. Okay back to recovery. What can you tell these people business owners that aren't seasons like you are or have multiple locations you know? And they're just they're crying. How can we help them? Helping the recovery. What what a good three good takeaways. I've read so much literature about the stuff and been on the phone talking to talking with my accountants. You my attorneys. Just trying to figure out exactly what is happening here. You know but while at the same time trying to maintain a business and making sure that people are taking care of which has been the biggest part to me so you know bringing them back bringing back some core people and and just trying to make sure that that they have something to do with you know reaching out to ones. That aren't that aren't working You know it's it's it's been a trying time. You know not only for the employees. But he's even for the employers. Are we want people to be doing well so two weeks ago? We got to We we got to open up at fifty percent you know and I know that there was a lot of a lot of people in my industry. Were upset about just being fifty percent fifty percent. I'll take it somebody better than is better than nothing and you know I use. Sometimes I usually don't I usually don't let that philosophy said easy with me but you know literally after being closed for a month month and a half you know I'll take fifty percent and you know we slowly started bringing people back in. I've got extra people we have. We have a one person just walking around cleaning at all at all the times and that shift gets rotated between the restaurants bars. But I mean you know we have one person who just walked around wiping things down and you know we're doing what we can. We're doing everything we can you know. I think that was part of the recovery. Just just go with it. Go with it. I mean there's nothing we can do about it. You know Except do what do what we're told to do that. You know as far as this. You know any money. That's being gotten you know. We listen to this podcast. Nope you didn't take something from it because It changes daily and play by the rules. Yeah by the rules could play any game how to play. That's exactly the rules. You make sure who whoever does your payroll payroll vault. And they've been nothing but a helpful to me especially in maintaining making sure that in the end when it comes to me meeting with the bank and and and handling all what's going to be forgiven all the stuff that I give Kudos to them. Well leave thank you teams working hard hard and I am. I am lean and hard and hard on. Trust me on this well. I've seen the report that's going to be issued. They built it in the software and corporate. I mean we're meeting every week talking about updates in how to help. Help the clients. 'cause we're just one franchise out of fifty four and it's growing and we have to fifty companies on it. You know how well and how many of them are yours. That's why you have a good team. These girls walk it but the report is actually one report and you have other reports that backup the report. You know right because what's going to happen is to the application for forgiveness which I'm studying now so I know how to complete it is so defined that you had to fill up. It's like the old tax returns by hand. You have to start on the worksheets before you can fill up page one. I'm build up and bud back to the ledge. Now becky can make I got it. I got I got that. Percussion all right. So the report actually tails you and takes into account for people that make over one hundred thousand dollars the forgiveness of the Lun. It calculates it Brown. And so you take off your loan amount. And it's done it's golden and so anybody out there that struggling with the payroll records because you just done it the same old way in the past you know. Give us a call. We'll be glad to put in your year today in and work with you. I'm they are a tremendous help out for it. Well thank you very much for that. Appreciate that we can. I ask one more question can we? Can we go back and touch on the you know especially the on the application of for forgiveness? Jump because you and I talked about it and I think it's definitely worth mentioning and I would love to hear it again. Is it really applies for my industry defining the part time employees and fulltime employees. I The fulltime employees now on page twenty one of the small business administration thirteen. Cf are part one twenty docket number bed by blonde. Yeah Yeah Yeah. The question is if a bar we stores reductions made to employee salaries and wages or F. T. employees I f t nothing but fulltime equivalent. And that just means that your fulltime people are easy. You know the time right all right so on a point system. So if you have three employees wonder full-time and two or part time. You get a half a point for each part timer so you have two full time equivalent employees okay. Yeah that's going slippery. Slow ought to spreadsheet okay so if a bar restores reductions to F. T. E. by not later than June thirtieth Kim the Bara void a reduction in its loan forgiveness amount. The answer is yes. And this is witten Bob. Them okay. Section Blah Blah Blah again provides that of certain employee salaries and wages were reduced between February Fifteenth April Twenty Six. They're calling that the safe harbor period. Okay that's when the poop hit the fan so again you're say. Proper dates are February fifteenth to April. Twenty six all right. So if you reduced wages and employee salaries between that period but the borrower. That's you eliminates those reductions by June thirtieth. That means you get them back back up okay earlier. The Bar is exempt from any reduction in the loan forgiveness amount. That would otherwise be do. Okay okay so hopefully. We'll be up by one hundred percent and everything's good but of course you know you've got fifteen hundred fifteen hundred pages to read which I'm not going to do here. All right if a bar eliminates any reductions in the F. T. employees occurring during the safe harbor period by June thirtieth. The Bar is exempt from any reduction in loan forgiveness. That would otherwise be required due to reduction in to e-employees all right. I don't know what the hell that means. I gotta read it but I do know this. I attended a Webinar put on by the Alabama Small Business Development Center. All Right Mike Brooks usually heads up their great assan that for one anytime I can get it and I made some notes. A lot of it was they. Don't but you know hey application. Just come out so expect anymore. How long ago was this last week last week? Okay that's a long time and time you know it's kind of my dog years. Yeah okay. Well aware you're right. All right said some of the notes that I made on this forgiveness. It's not about pay dates anymore. There's a second choice all right so you get to pick which method G. report aren't whether win the payroll was encouraged. Because we telling everybody movie payday to get within weeks right right right. All right now is not just about pay dates in eight weeks all right so now. They're saying for example the. Pcp you've got your money on twenty at the first payroll was April Twenty. Six all right now. There's an alternative met that you can start from that. I natural pay will on April twenty six and take your eight weeks from there. That's huge arguments. I've already lost a week and now they're telling me gain back possibly okay. I'm trying not to do anything in concrete here. All right. That is huge. Let me you the biggest thing I've learned about all this and this goes to every business owner out. There is if you had it in place before and it was normal reasonable and it was your life for example. You had a rent. You had a lease or even month to month. And then you don't say don't have written lease if you can show a track record of canceled checks or records of paying rent every month then. That rent qualifies absolutely. But if you didn't pay any rent let's say you own the building and now you WANNA pay yourself five thousand dollars. A month went. No Dude. You're asking for trouble. You can't play kickball like that. You can't play this game like all right. So here's something out AC H. Origination counts as paycheck distributed on the pay date or when earned. All right I hear what they're saying. You have to pick a method one way or the other either by the deposit date or by the first normal payroll date okay but throughout the application whatever method you pick you got to stick with. So here's my biggest recommendation is. I'm going to have a spreadsheet for everyone that I'm helping with and I'm on do one method of on the left and one method on the right take the full application all the way through which everyone does them the best. That's the woman going with. Yeah I had A. I was paying my people biweekly. And then ask. I switched to to pay people weekly one of the main reasons why people weren't making any money and say they can't. They can't hold out for two weeks waiting on whatever it is so we switched to a weekly payroll that better a matter of fact. I might stick with it. Cardi does Coca Cola. There's a there's a lot of other reasons for that too. So but you know when you were talking about the June thirtieth date of for people you know if if we go by what the criteria is now all my pbs. The eight weeks expire before I get to that s still the look period. But I see what you mean So I think it's all come together and again that goes back to the flexibility to extend it so everybody out flexibility act exactly and so everybody out there who thinks all listener to like spreadsheets and reading the Law. Just want shark and play the game and you know if you don't fill out your census if you don't have the representatives you won't you can't get help like this and I'm sorry just the the world we live in so fill your crap out guys. You know what else to say why we're running out of time okay. No we can talk. I can talk to you for days. I know it I could talk for days to fund. It is back on the show. Thank you and do you have a two years to anything right now. Here's to be an open. I hear Ya okay. I'll take that for sure.

Create Your Own Opportunities
"Oh I see is opportunity. You explain to me. Avoid shortages optical. I think in my head. Let's the opportunity. My mindset is right there. This is entrepreneurs the playbook there's opportunity because energy flows too far and I was. Somebody would have taught me this when I was younger. Listen to what I'm saying. Opportunities created when negative energy moves to far work positive. Energy moves too far so when we're afraid of something like a virus for example things are going to move too far. I'm not downplaying being careful and save. I'm just saying they move too far the same way with good news things. Move too far what you want to look for in the mindset that you WanNa have is how do I create opportunities with the boy that is created when things move too far so if we are at center at truth consciousness and something moves too far? This portion is opportunity. And let's say this side is positive so if things move this to to positively over optimistic right I tell people. All the time we want to be a senator you WANNA BE TRUTH CONSCIOUSNESS. So you know celebrating. Too much is just as bad as being too depressed. They both creative Lloyd. Can you guys see that if anyone doesn't believe in that? I'm happy to explain it even farther. Have you seen that happen in your own life? Energy is wasted. A void created when things swing too. Far you're in real estate right Angelo. Have we seen markets move too far positive negative? Most people this is where the mindset comes in most people go with the flow. They don't see the opportunity so they go in and they get too optimistic and then they get to pessimistic and they don't take advantage of what the opportunity that's created because they don't have the mindset that negative energy is pushing me towards something better than positive energy will only push me so far so i WanNa make sure that I recognized the opportunity in the void that's created so while most people are sitting there going God. They cancelled all my speaking engagements because no one's traveling because of this virus. I'm calling places going. Hey can I replace those people? That aren't showing up this huge opportunity. There's never been more open speaking engagements in the history of speaking at least in my career but most of the speakers that I'm getting there emailing calling me asking me for help or like Oh man I've lost. You know they closed this this. This convent's not happening. This events not happening. This one's cancelled. I've got three on like really for every one of those that have been canceled on you. There's twenty other speakers that are cancelling on them. And that means that there's annual meetings going on locally where some New York hotshots not flying anywhere that I should be calling in their go. Hey just to make sure I saw you having the annual meeting. He didn't have a speaker. Cancel because I'll be glad to drive over in respect to the virus not putting myself in any jeopardy but creating an opportunity. Money DOES NOT DISAPPEAR. Neither does opportunity. The Universe is completely balanced. Money does not disappear every time you see a market go down. There is some rich move. Oakland like this thank God that draft bring more to Papa. It DOESN'T DISAPPEAR EVERY TIME. Your House is worth half as much as it was. There's somebody going like this. Come to Papa just the same as when your house doubles. There's someone going like this. Money doesn't disappear opportunities omnipresent. We need to be aware of where center is so that we can take advantage of the opportunities that exist whether it's over optimism or overpasses over negative energy over positive energy. It doesn't matter either. Way If you're not senator opportunity exists. The irony is probably less opportunity exist or awareness of opportunity is everything ran right on center because everyone would have consisted knowing of exactly what was happening and we would all be a flow right. You wouldn't have big opportunity to be complete equality which would be fine and everybody would be abundant and we have enough of everything for everyone. It's just not realistic right now. We live at a lower vibration a lower frequency there is scarcity on earth. Some people feel into some people. Don't all this stuff. We were talking about earlier with quantum memory and relationship of money and energy etc. We've got a little bit a ways to go but while we're getting there guys let's take advantage of the opportunities in a positive way by being of service and creating value and monetize that void that exists by being focused paying attention to what's really going on giving it your intention in creating the coincidences that you want. Ninety percent of the people will immediately go with the flow and you'll dive right into the bandwagon. Oh my God I'm not going anywhere. Sky Is falling. There's no money to be had. I wish I would have bought that stock. I wish I would've sold this dog. I wish I would have bought a house sold the house. I wish I would have refi. Is I wish I wish don't do your whizzing afterwards. Hear what I'm saying in a mindset. I don't do my wishing afterwards I don't wish I coulda Shoulda anything. I wish today what I want tomorrow not. I don't wish what happened yesterday ridiculous because I know that if I pay attention to what. I wish that I put intention. I think they do and believe and try to focus in on my personality traits characteristics obsessions at Addiction. Mike Quantum Memory. My potential that my wishes will come true. I know one thing right one hundred percent of all things that I do now get done. One hundred percent of all short putts. Don't go in and one hundred percent of the wishes of what I would have could have should have done will never come true. They're done. I want to get to the point of one hundred percent things I wish for in the future happen. Regardless of what other people's perceptions are negative or positive what other voids shortages that obstacles they perceived to exist. All I see is opportunity. You explain to me. Avoid shortage optical. I think in my head Let's see opportunity. My mindset is right there and when I see an opportunity because I live in a vibration a monetary vibration at this vibration currency that only existed this vibration that currencies called money an object of energy that he put into flow the by the jets and the roles in food. And Your Mom's house in your sisters blindness and all the things that money can do the currency of this vibration. I set forth on a on a journey in order to attract that vibration what I used to attract it. Faith the aggregate of what he thinks they do. Believe in those quantum memories that I have personality traits characteristics possessions and Addictions by Utilizing Lens of productivity accessibility and gratitude by using a key values of gratitude forgiveness accountability. In inspiration. Die Understand that. I'm on a journey only to clear the connection of that which inspires me that. I'm already connected to at all times my goals when I don't feel that inspiration is the stop drop and roll and keep cleaning that interference and corrosion and saying to myself. I'm not going to go with the flow. I'm going to go down the middle. I'm going to center. I'm going to be in the flow. Go with the flow. Does everybody understand the difference. I'M GONNA be in the flow right. I'm clear that connection interference that everybody has to the most powerful source of energy light love and lessons and I'm going to be in that flow but I'm not going with the flow because I'll get too high and too low if I go with the flow but if I go in the flow I will maximize productivity accessibility and inspiration gratitude that I have for everything and guess what this all equates to finish up and get two. Qa One simple world where if you go in the flow all you will be is at Disneyland. Eating happy meals all day long. You will be in the happiest place on Earth eating happy meals all day long. That's what being in the flow is just being happy being happy. The mission of my life is to impact you to impact someone else to impact someone else to be happy. That's what will create a collective consciousness of happiness that more people will be in the flow. They won't be going with the flow when you go with the flow. Happiness is temporary right so is depression unfortunately right when we go in the flow we start the habit of depressive in the habit of the negativity we start believing that negative energy is pushing us towards something worse. Not something better right for me. All negative energy and experiences are taking me something better because it's teaching the lessons for what I have and pain is only the result of what haven't learned whether it's physical spiritual or mental or emotional pain right and I look at all of those right. Some people can handle physical pain but they can't handle any spiritual paid some people get handled. Total spirits paid cannot handle any physical pain. Some people can't handle any mental pain right. They said their own bath right. God there's a spiritual Beta or emotional pain rail your by media leagues. He said I did it or some people you know. Do One push up like for me. I just practice practice and practice the lessons of all four so that I can get stronger and stronger. Physically mentally spiritually and emotionally. I'm practicing and so when things heard a little bit I get excited I start training the mindset saying oh so goods coming this boy here. I'm going right back to center but I'm going to be in the low pastors. I'm not going with the flow. I'm greatest struggle for myself. I'm okay with that and I'm a train myself. One of those four. We're all good at. We're quantum memory one of those four. We're all good at society may value one over another. But I don't and so what I do is I take the one that I'm especially good at an essay. Why am I good at understanding this pain and learning the lessons quickly and it really doesn't bother me but I can't do it over here? That's where I wanNA have Goggin or or the Hoffa on my podcast or learn from them. Because I WANNA learn what they do with physical pain and see what lessons I can learn to adjust it over to other types of pain right emotional pain or spiritual pain intellectual team. We all have all four. We're just learning lessons but get excited about it. Don't go with the flow. Get in the flow. Take advantage of every boy George Obstacle. Because it's just an opportunity and put a monetary perspective onto it utilizing a true lens of productivity accessibility and gratitude do the math. No Intel yourself. Oh good this thing's oversold. There's an opportunity now question and ask yourself. How can I take care of this opportunity? Because money doesn't disappear. It's just moving and I wanted to move to me so I can have the option to do what I want to buy. The things that I want will make me happy to buy the right things for the lessons that I wanNA learn. Every time I buy something I buy it for the less that I WANNA learn. I don't buy for any of those other reasons anymore. Even when I buy things for my children and my wife and the community local state governed country wise. I literally when I'm giving money for community centers in Africa or schools. Here in Orange County or scholarships the kid with my high school. I'm buying it to learn lessons this buying less tuition straight tuition. That's what you're paying think about it. You're just paying tuition. Sometimes the tuition pays you back. Sometimes the tuition's gone doesn't matter. It's still tuition. You're going to learn those lessons lessons. They're gonNA keep on coming until you learn the going to result in pain mental physical spiritual emotional pain until you learn them. So let's learn faster monetize the voids using a mindset a strong mindset of happiness. Is that sound fair?

Multiple Locations and Hard Lessons with Michael Presson
"Before we start the show. I'm excited announced that we have a new sponsor for this podcast and its stock. Rx docker exit. The family oriented company dedicated detailer operations on solutions for patient. Health and compliance grants that increases the quality and efficiency of patient centered care and always with the mission of patients.

Rex is your patient in health. Compliant solution both under one roof to find out how docker x. can help you your hospital pharmacy or physician's office. The other services dockery dot com. That's d r x dot com now today show from the perspective that you've got to see in lead by being present a lot of times and trust is a big issue and processes help solve both of those issues. I've lost in been hurt a lot by being naive in not having the right processes in place. But i'm a much better business person now as a result of those valuable lessons. Hey everybody welcome to the show. Today we have michael personnel. He is with one. Eight hundred radiator gives a franchise but he also has four locations. Let's hear the challenges but also the winds. Hey i'm karen. I'm a former. Cpa entrepreneur business consultant with big ideas. Welcome to cheers to business. Michael preston thank you so much for coming on the show. Tell how we met. Hey thanks karen. We met at the road map growth class a couple of weeks ago. Where miller leading that. And you're one of the subject matter experts. Yeah i'm just allowed tina awesome. Well thank you thank you. Didn't richard head invited me on and there were two other. Cpa's one from carshield belly and then dinner sharon from advisor so i was in very top company now the cpa anymore. But i just have fun now. And i just don't care about rules i just don't so tell us about your business. I own four locations of franchise called one eight hundred radiator Started out in daphne. I bought that location about seven years ago and then the other locations over the last several years it is a wholesale autopart supplier. Okay so your card says one eight hundred radiator in a ac. Yep yeah it's you can tell by the name when that company was created it was originally created out of california in kind of a hub and spoke warehouse strategy and then about fifteen years ago. The decided to start selling franchises to get local ownership across the country. I love jazz candy now. Own wouldn't find franchise. We actually have two territories mobile and baldwin county for payroll bolt and people don't realize that two franchise didn't know that. Yeah and so this whole go. Local height the chains be. Be careful when you're hating because you don't know whether it's really corporate or if it's franchises because of its franchise i could be a local. That could be your neighbor. That owns that right exactly. And that's when was the taglines that we talk about. His were national company with local ownership. Two hundred twenty five locations across the country and in canada on four of them see. I didn't wanna reinvent the wheel. Garon knew that. Cpa's cannot make money doing payrolls just doesn't make sense because it's the billing structure right. People want to wrap theirselves around the business and not want to reinvent the wheel. And i think that's the smartest thing about franchises. It's all laid out for you. Yeah well i got into the franchise business we. We lived in memphis before we moved to a fair hope about seven years ago. Eight years ago we own a little business called three dog bakery based out of kansas city and a dog bakery. We bay birthday cakes in all fresh all natural foods in it was a fascinating little business and it taught me the value of franchises because i have no history in baking and neither did my wife but they taught us everything we needed to know. We had all the ingredients. We hit all of the recipes. And so we're good to go. So when i moved here i moved here to buy this business. But i was comfortable with the franchise model. So now you went from one franchise and kenny. Nap talked about this before you know. We're at a good place right now. So we're not looking for growth but you think about it. I've had a business with multiple locations before the struggles and tell us your three top challenges for all those listeners out there that own a business in hard enough as it is but then to open up. A second location yeah. I don't feel like that. I'm a control freak but i learned a much more of a control freak as a small business owner than i ever thought. I was before from the perspective that you've got to see in lead by being present a lot of times and in trust is a big issue and processes help solve both of those issues. I've lost in been hurt a lot by being in not having the right processes in place. But i'm a much better business person now as a result of those valuable lessons as a really good point because every time i've been burned i've learned something from it and i'm not a micromanager. Yeah i'm just not. I don't have time. I hire smart people. Expect you to do your job. Yep same here. I was in corporate world for twenty years with the medical company. Regional leadership been Sales leadership sales operations moved around quite a bit so a little comfortable with travel and comfortable with leading teams. That aren't directly in front of me. So i think that looking back that helped me be prepared to lead multiple locations right. Secondly when i got down here the first employees are hired. My wife actually found used to work at sam's and always joke at this. The best thing we've ever bought sam's is jessica and jessica is fantastic and jessica is a a rule follower a thorough honest Trustworthy person lover to death. That's how i define. Yeah yeah absolutely. And there's no way in the world. I could have gone to number two three or four locations. If it hadn't been for jessica and every time that we considered. It asked. Jessica i because i wanted to make sure she was okay with us expanding and doing these other things and she was always on board. And that's given me the freedom to be able to lead and not have to operate as much you know. We talk about people all the time that i couldn't be. Cfo fifteen companies or whatever. It is now without the people. It's all about the people right and say you found your person. Yeah do you know how fortunate that is you had to do. And i found more than just a person you know. I've got another guy named paul. Who's my sales manager. He started out as one of my sales reps. Left me for a couple of months came back again. He's he's the ultimate sales person and leave my sales team in you know again. He's worth far more than i can ever pay him. Don't give them to minneap. Girls now backfire. On you said they travel as much as you do between locations They both travel. Jessica is open to it She's got some good friends. That live in birmingham so we got that location. She's just to go visit them and and she likes getting out every once in a while always up to her. I don't ever force her. Same thing with paul. Paul likes to get out there and change it up a little bit. So yeah they. They travel a fair amount. I said tell all your locations. Okay so daphne. Bellizzi liens birmingham so logistically. You know finding the perfect location. That's a whole of the show. Yeah and so. What do you look for when you go to place a new store. Well those were all existing locations. That when i bought them they came with a warehouse that was already under lease and so we don't have much retail facing business so it doesn't have to be a pretty place and a strategic place to get traffic. It has to be functional and allow me to get out to deliver. 'cause we deliver parts to customers said who your customers mostly repair shops collision center's dealerships. Also we we are the we are the wholesale warehouse to to anybody who works on cars so if you need to get your car repaired and you take it into the shop that you trust and you like and they need a part if i supply that part going to pick up the phone and call us to see if we have it then turn around and let you know that they have it and how much it's going to be you say you're tommy boy to certain degree big man and little great movie. Sorry i had some venables ask but right. Now there's coke is we need to think about franchise. Did you think about the retail side. Not the wholesale side exactly exactly. So when i was was laid off for my corporate world and i was looking for business by One of the things i wanted to do. I wanted to be more on the wholesale side more the direct business. But it's a different world in in in your hours. You know your stress level but this is the way from people. My wife is the people person. I'm less so i'm a little bit more introverted. You were the first one. Is that i kind of invited the group at milas class and mobile chamber. I said you know. Hey if anybody wants to come on the podcast let me know you were the first one you emailed me while i was still they will. It was fascinating. i mean. first of all your fantastic in teaching us. I mean seriously. You were very hands on very open very encouraging in and i'm looking to learn you know i've been doing this for eight years but i still joke that i'm flying. The plane is build it. You know i. I really don't know what i don't know yet. And so i'm trying to learn from other businesspeople Main reason why. I'm in the class. That's probably the smartest thing anyone can never know anyone anyone anyone that admits that i don't know what i don't know yet in that's genius the ones that think that i've owned a business for this many years. I know everything you're screwed. Sorry now now then. Then that's what got me in trouble as mentioned four so i ran into the problem multiple. I my second. Location i bought was new orleans location and everything went great for about two years and then all of a sudden i had some employees in there that that was a pathological liar in started stealing in line about it in framing of the in the business that get close to figuring it out we would fire the wrong person and It was it was a mess Finally i caught caught this person and we got rid of them and we had to rebuild a business because we lost a lot of trust with our customers. Now i've got guy over there who's doing a great job. He's managed the day to day operation. A trusting also trust and verified quoting ronald reagan and making sure and so i put in some processes that we had daily reporting put in a bring machine so that the cash immediately is deposited. So i don't have to worry about that. Grabbing legs and walking off at t what the people have had on the show. It's kind of a pattern for the ones that have the the thieves and the liars that they give bar four five people before they get to the source exactly. Yeah it was. It was unbelievable and having different locations. It's harder to control that. Because you want to trust people. I think human nature to want to trust and believe that person when they say something right so i think the pattern that is you know when you've hired your second person One person told gee it was somebody else. Your alarm button needs to go off. It rocked my world. I mean i've i've never suffered from anxiety in my life but there were nights that i sleep and i lost weight and it it was hard and not just the the financial loss but because of the trust is yeah. 'cause i'm a trusting person in you know i told everybody i've ever hired over my entire career that if you don't last deal cheat from me we're gonna get along pretty good. Yeah and this person did all three within the first six months in was so good at it. I didn't i didn't catch it. I was blondin still for me one time and it was time you might think well. Let's time no no as money. Yeah it's money. And i think that once you that trust factor is gone. I mean you're done. Yeah it's done your exactly. We write the book because it's not going to go back to the way it was run. Your so what's your hardest part of having multiple locations travel a lot. And as i've gotten older i don't like to travel as much. I used to travel a lot in my previous life. And i missed a lot. You know my kids were younger. But i kind of like my wife. When i kinda wanna be home and So the travel is tough. But i think more than anything is just not being able to be there in solvent issue immediately. I've got a good team. Now that calls me or called jessica paul and we solve it together when you build the right core values around. I'm trying to train them to solve the problem. And then then call me because they know pretty much now how. I'm gonna answer that question after working with me for a while and let's let's be honest. Let's put out a campfire instead of building to a forest. Fire has solved is much easier that way. So let's solve it with the customer first and then we can. We can deal with it. So that's the hard part. Yeah i think making sure that customers happy first and then working on how we prevent this in the beach yeah. We made that mistake in several times. We've argued even though we were right. We argued about a warranty issue with a customer. Win in the grand scheme of things didn't doesn't matter and you don't want to lose a big customer over a small insignificant price issue and so we've gotten much better at that as grown taking your battles and watching the dollars instead they arguing over dependence. Yes ma'am A big deal in my world. I have multiple businesses so is of multiple locations system different things and i think. People around me get aggravated. May when. I don't think something's very important Well it's not not to me is not the biggest thing on fire and you have to take what's watch out for the hundreds of thousands and not worry about the pennies you know but the hard lesson learned it is the flip side of that is if it's really important to that employee then i need to slow down because i tend to go fast. I need to slow down and see it the way they're seeing it. And why is it so important to them right now and instead of what i tend to do is direct. An answer the question or solve the problem and move on. I need to do a better job at times. Listening to them. In wise this big issue to you in let them solve it on their own. That's where i'm trying to get karen. I'm not there i tried. It is hard. It is hard because you know this is going up for in your peripheral vision that you need to go take care of but this person in front of you really needs and we all a little t. l. c. basically never forget back in the. Cpa firm noel. She would rub shoulders that. Tlc like a little key cat. You know the paul w arm and sometimes people just need a little. Tlc that they're heard. Yeah that's a little creepy. I couldn't do that. Women understand. But i'm a hugger. I'm a touchy feely. Gas this whole. Kobe thing is weird for me to you know but yeah i understand slowdown in whether it's physical or emotional and listening. I'm getting better. It's hard and i'm more man than i am. Woman there's only three parts that make me a woman eg other than that. i don't change. I don't paint my house on a move my furniture. I don't have curtains. I don't care and so it's hard for me to be that girlfriend. Hey kids let's have a baby shower. I don't and so i'm guilty of what you're saying. I'm very much guilty. And i had to physically mentally make myself stop to make that person feel important. Turn in feel bad for that sure. So i'm counting in my head while i tried to make this person trying to legitimate. You know like well. I've been married for thirty four years. So i've gotten pretty good at that. I've been married thirty two. I'm just kidding now is is tough to to make yourself stop you. Don't have that much going on. Yeah go. I go too fast. At times i changed my mind pretty fast. If i've seen that is better than that message with people to. I know they can't stand that. Yeah but you said right. that's right. Well this is a rule. But you're gonna have to be flexible in that rule and that's hard for for for people who are rule followers yet and the ball said this is the rule. Okay k now when she change it bright. I'm guilty i'm guilty so any regrets of opening multiplications now not at all. Well let me back up. My banker would probably say there's some regrets now it every location. That bought was the stray dog that we adopted. Essentially it was an underperforming situation with the exception of the new orleans. It was doing pretty well and then got into straight on category. You bought businesses from other franchisees. That were already existing correct okay. So as a result to get them where they needed to be ahead to invest more in inventory in poland locations at at times and so it's been a bigger financial investment than the timing. That i probably should have used but it is what it is. And we're we're doing well so you looking to get more if my wife. Here's this podcast. The answer is no but no. I think it's possible This is a big geography Because we live in the southeast. You know we're not as concentrated. We were in the northeastern atlantic seaboard but There are other locations that that are contiguous. And might i could. If i if i wanted to but i've got to get these stable and and really kicking off some profit before we get get your capital loaded up exactly manda. Katie would pay about one franchisee of the year. And there's an international franchise association and we went to dc for her to get her award. And i met a guy he was he had owned. Forty seven windies franchises. Can you imagine well no. And he sold them noah and now he was involved with the walk on some at a new orleans and we have one here in my bill the restaurants walker. But i mean. He'd new franchises inside the now did matter whether you have ten whether you have forty of them you know the concepts basically the same people in place in that example is exactly why i was comfortable in getting other locations because i had people say well. Why would you do that. How you sell four locations as opposed to wants There's examples all across the the Franchise world where people own ten twenty thirty locations and that attracts the attention of investors who have a large amount of money to spend and they don't necessarily want to buy a job they want to buy a business. And so that's the way i'm trying to structure. This is that he. I'd like to retire at some point even though it is later than what most people would. because i've i've got to do something. But i wanted to be able to operate as a business and not me have to be in one particular place all the time i love it. I mean this is my whole lot of people. Say you sold you. I thought you retired. The i've never retired. Yeah now not truly truly michael. What made you choose this one. What was your process in looking at. I guess you had a goal of buying jazz franchise actually no. I had a goal of buying a business. So when i was laid off a my corporate job we were living in memphis at the time and the quick quick version story is that i was looking to buy business there and every january my wife and i take a little marriage retreat in We randomly picked the grand hotel down here a lot of marriott point to the time and i never been to fair hope so we came down here and had a great weekend when i got back in town had a business broker. That was using. Who told me about this franchise location here. No idea had been down here. And over the next forty eight hours ahead to other contacts with people that i knew that either had owned franchises. One eight hundred radiator or knew somebody who did and so it's like okay. God i'm slow. Signed a yeah. But i'm not. I'm not an idiot. So checked into it. And because i was comfortable with the franchise because this kind of checked the boxes that we put in place we came and looked at it in a month or so later we bought it and the rest is history. The rest is history so interested as a great story. Yeah it is a great story. Say nail with mak- logistics. My husband and i are working together. And i'm finding that the work conversations are going into the night So you sounds like your wife is very involved. My wife is very involved in a lot of things but not necessarily the business yeah. She's comes up there. She's the head cheerleader Love as most anybody who meets her does But she's never worked fulltime in the business. She's involved in a lot of different other charity issues in bible studies and she actually started a new charity. The last few months call hope blooms blooms that my wife's a cancer survivor. She was diagnosed with breast cancer last fall and she found Karen that through every week while she was going through treatment somebody was bringing her flowers. And sometimes it was for people didn't even know so she had this idea that and his follow through in says a team. They just started a couple of weeks ago. Where if you are having a wedding with your.

My father went to university in New York City. Really yes is to go with him and taking his celebrate. You celebrate your. What do you do on Shabbat discs? Exactly tell you on Shabbat. And the Jaguars signed a quarterback who do we have McClellan the jets did not the Jaguars the Jaguars Jaguars Son McLennan jets did. I thought that was the New York. Jet China Jabber side McLennan mic Glenn and by the way we refer to him as we refer to him as McLennan. It's a because. Yeah Seth after Mike Glennon if you recall threw an interception so badly that it it it went. It was behind the line of scrimmage but it flew out of his hands. He was so disgusted by his Tampa. Bay buccaneer Mike Glennon career just referred to him as MC Glenn is combined it all into one word and that was his nickname on a couple of seasons of. Nfl Game Day morning and that's just went. Nfl game gave me grunt. Mike Glennon is Mike. Glennon is his name or as we saw in hard knocks. Glennon on Mike Glenn on Peterman and Glenn on so we're GonNa talk about a guy that's made some money. I mean with holes gone. They needed somebody whose neck is as tall as Nick Foles. So they went. They went with Mike Glennon. Mike Glennon career earnings. Yeah twenty nine million in seven years. Oh Baby Jake froms GonNa make his living man. Jacob from is going to be a very rich man holding a clipboard for a long time. Yeah Okay Eight. Four four tool for riches the number to dial the. Nfl didn't wait long. We'RE GONNA GET WE'RE GONNA get that week one and everyone's like week one. It's just going to be something that they can just lop off and not have and then what comes out of the gate. We is what comes out of the gate and week one. All right is exactly what we're looking for. The we being everybody but the Front Office of the Chicago Bears. Because we're probably getting set for nick. Foles starting in Detroit for the bears in week one later on on Sunday September thirteenth. The whole country is settling into watch two quarterbacks that they chose Mitchell trubisky over everybody will be tuned in excited to watch with the exception of Chicago Bears Front Office and Potentially Coaching Watson at Mahomes and Man Al Michaels our first guest on the NBC. Our is ready to roll to watch all the points. Come and as we all know. That was a game where the Texans had the chiefs dead to rights. They were smoking them and then mahomes scored nineteen unanswered touchdowns on the way to on the way to letting all of the X. Hail of chiefs kingdom I was watching the disaster unfold. And then I love. Some of these games at Seattle at Atlanta is ignited Neat Start Division Games browns and Ravens. You've got the the bears and lions. You've also got the Eagles and Redskins you've got the cardinals and the forty niners which a great one and then of course the Patriots and the bills. We were all. I'm sorry no the jets have to go visit the bills in week. One my bed. The jets have to visit the team. That is the assumed best team in the AFC east because they got not one not too not three but four nationally televised games. Oh No no no the Patriots. Get to open at home against the dolphins the last year. Do you know the last time. The dolphins beat bill belichick check in back to back years in New England. Name it I'll give you the answer. It's never happened. It's never happened last time. The Dolphins won back to back. Years in New England was ninety nine and two thousand when they beat Pete Carroll and Bella check in his first year. Wow okay so it's never happened. So the jets jets the jets go but but but just to dive in a little bit. The Patriots First Road game is a very next week. And that is the home opener in front of the twelve. And again we're going down the WORMHOLE here. I understand where it would be very fitting the Patriots first game for stem on the road would be in Seattle with no fans so he can hear every day every last nap. But I'm not gonNA really really said yes. I did you say that I did. You say that. And you think that's what that's the schedule makers. Let's not the schedule Patriots. The football gods always shine a New England. The same football cards. It gave Tom Brady a four game suspension for air. Like come on. I'm sorry I just look at the jet schedule and I look at the Patriots schedule and I know it's exactly the same with the exception of two games and it just when I look at the jet schedule just looks like a total disaster in the making certainly if you know darnold gets Ricketts for the first six weeks that's my take. That's my take home on but we put the put the week schedule backup symptom of Rick. I don't care was the first thing that hopped into my. Let's say it's a children thing with the vitamin D deficiency. Did I tell you about the rams stadium would be the rams? I obviously not the chargers? It's cronk he's dime not the chart. Not The SPANOS is and who did I tell you? What do we walk in that building but the guy was very instrumental in getting the stadium to be here in up? The road in Los Angeles is to down the road where the chargers and the raiders apparently wanted to get together and it was this guy along with craft who put their thumbs on the scale and say no. No no no. We're going to have the Los Angeles Rams in Los Angeles in the where. The current stadium is being built up the road from our studios right around. Lax and it's The Dallas cowboys. Who BY THE WAY? Who's owner Jerry? Jones also has that group. I believe along with the Yankees who sell stadium. Name Rights World and Jerry. Jones company is the one that made the deal with so five for that stadium. Just up the road. Of course the Dallas cowboys to be here. Oh yeah and so. That's a monster huge Sunday night. Football game to start the season and I do like the double dip I do like the double dip on the Monday night or on. Espn steelers and the and the giants the old Rooney miserable. And by the way that is why Rooney Mara is named Rooney Mara because the steelers and the giants owners have been friends for a long time. They sit next to each other at owners meetings so steelers giants is a great Monday night. Football game for the League as well as ESPN. Sign them up for that. And the titans and the broncos are a NEAT AFC till between the runners up of the American football conference last year. Derrick Henry in the air with the Thin Air Ryan Tannehill and we'll see the remain Denver broncos. I like that game and then the late window on Fox week one. We've got Our Buddy Joe Buck calling on that one. He will no doubt be sitting there in New Orleans. Tom Brady's first game is a buck is not only his first game in the NFC south it is in fact Brady versus breeze week. One a piece of filet mignon steak served up for all of us after we watched the one o'clock afternoon games and they're right there served up for all of us host. The Country Brady breeze. Come on I mean let's I know that's it's great and then and then you know all the parts of the country we've seen cardinals remade de'andre Hopkins against the defending NFC champion forty niners a crate weekend and late windows on CBS. Jim Nance joining us at the end of this program and I guess. We're getting Charles Davis on the phone. We call him. Is that the the setup with that because I was told he was going to be joining us earlier on them right now on the clock. Maybe this is the one that they they'll send them Charlestonian Eagle to charges at bengals. Joe Boroughs first game against the chargers. I doubt it'll be Justin Herbert because I don't think rookie. Without Ota's and probably much of a training camp that we're used to is going to beat out to Rod Taylor. But I'll I'll be on all that right absolutely love the week when Packers Vikings Colts Jaguars Philip rivers against Mike. Glennon government Browns Ravens Raiders Panthers. And then the raiders opened up on the road to start and then home the home opener in the death star in Las Vegas Nevada that. I hope you get to go to is the Monday night of week. Two Saints Raiders. Amazing I mean that's great man. I'm looking forward to that. Do you own or rent your home you do and I bet it can be hard work.

Jim nance still to come and gymnasts now a CBS colleague of this man who deserves every last bit of congratulations on his new deal with CBS. Sports after Yeoman's work in the booth with Kevin Burkhardt for so many years number two cruel on Fox one of our great friends. Charles Davis. How are you CD? I'm doing great rich. Thanks a lot I appreciate it very very much. Trust your family still healthy safe. As as I hope everyone can hear our voices as you say yes Thank goodness we're all healthy and well and that does include my children Coming into my office several times during last night's four hour broadcast schedule because that's where the ipads were being charged but thankfully there was you know they snuck in snuck out. I was able to conduct my appointed rounds. So do you. Don't you have no idea what your games are right? I mean I know that. That's a crazy question. Okay so But I I I'm wondering what your your first blush thoughts of that week. One schedule I just kind of broke it all down. What what leaps out to you Charles. Well immediately you know we knew. Obviously what can the city would be doing in terms of hosting? Someday we get. That wasn't a major surprise but I think everyone's locked in on Sunday night New Orleans and Tampa. I mean it's hard to get past that that's going to be great. I mean right out of the gate. We wonder what it would be. We knew it would be one of the primes right. If you'd dump you knew he would be one of them but would it be Monday night Sunday night. We knew it wasn't going to be Thursday so that that one just jumped right out at me right out of the gate we just bought. Okay makes sense all right. This is fantastic with movies batboy along. And then you just kind of as you go through the schedule. You can't help but look at quarterback match ups but I have one that I found interesting early deep deep into the schedule rich and December a playoff team. That is trying. Its best to make that last step. Thought they were going to a couple of years. Ago didn't get their foiled again last year and the division around Minnesota Viking and remember Kirk cousins was supposed to be the guy. Go to over the top. Well here's Tampa Bay getting Brady grog having a good draft great off and they're trying to go from worst to first compete for Super Bowl their home stadium. That's a game in December playoff team. Playoff team although you don't suspect that the Tampa Bay will be that. That would look like fun. 'cause Kirk cousins was supposed to be different than here. He got a chance. Go next twelve games. Like that fascinate me. Rich chose Davis here on the rich Eisen. Show I an and how about the Buffalo Bills Man. I know you'll be calling a few of those games now with. Cbs bills have not one not two not three but four nationally televised appearances and they they earned it man I mean. They went into Dallas and spanked him on Thanksgiving they went to Houston and should one that playoff game. They've got you know they've got some guys that are going to be one up on your fantasy team as opposed to previous years. How how do you think the bills can be Charles? I think they can be very good. I think for the bills their biggest hurdle truthfully rich in my mind the specter of New England. Because they will go into the season as the favourite in the AFC and what was the last time we said anyone who was the favourite nfc other than New England. Like even the years. New England didn't win it outright. They tied for it and remember. We had that crazy quirky year. Where they want to Lebanon five with Matt Cassel after twelve got hurt and game one at Kansas City and didn't make the playoffs. You know. Just one of those weird seasons up there like that would happen at eleven five so for Buffalo. The good thing. They've got going for them. Is He. Taking really tough. I mean that's not an easy one look last year. Buffalo's probably right on. Nfl Network. There if I remember correctly rich that Saturday Josh Allen doesn't Air Mail about three toss it knocks late in the game. Gosh you know right there so to me. It's the specter of win for Buffalo. More than anything else. I think this is a team. That still on the rise and Josh Allen. I'll guarantee you. He's putting the work in the off season even though we're all limited because of the endemic out there another team to that you'll be seeing more often than not that. I'm fascinated by is Denver. Nobody's GonNa you know what I mean like. They're going to be flying into the right on. We're GONNA be talking about the defending Super Bowl. Champs we're GONNA be talking about is Justin herber taken over for the chargers. Were absolutely going to be talking about the raiders for good reason. But nobody's going to be talking about the broncos whose offense if lock can show up in the manner in which he was beginning to show up at the end of last year they can make some Hay with Fangio tightening the bolts on the defenses the Hdz Charles. When you say and you yeah and you know where else they get goodrich. It's easy on offense to say. Okay you've added. Melvin Gordon to Philip Lindsey in the backfield check. You've added tight end position in the draft. Alberto going in there with no offense. Obviously Judy and ham were receiving core but they got better than the Interior Grand Blouse Gal coming from Detroit right now to be the starting center then they drafted cushenberry out of Lsu like a natural starting center and Glass Dot Out There. Great experience playing guard either way experts both of them to be in the lineup. Which ever configuration they want. And now you've got better in front of your quarterback and what drives that craziest in the NFL. Got Pressure those to help tamp that down and made a lot of good aussies okay. I know we're just went a little bit under the radar. Here what do you? What do you think of the Colts in Philip Rivers? Did you by the way here about Phillips announcement. Today Charles. Another baby that was like a family feud moment five inches on the board. Here's your question. Philip rivers made this big announcement today. You just buzzed in with baby do you do you have do you have the buzzer fight. You're not the Browser Shami. You do have the Buzzer. I feel sorry so I'll get it. Show me baby. No he announced he announced that he is going to be. That is fantastic number ten. He's the he's the next but not on the book. Well on on the Philip Rivers board not in our top. Ten answers No He's going to be taking over the head coach of the high school. Football Program at Saint Michel Catholic in Fair Hope Alabama when? He's done playing doing it that he's absolutely doing it. 'cause he did say that you know. Obviously his father was a coach and Filipino. The famous story of him throwing the football motion coming from the big football right the whole deal and and and and here. He is following dad's footsteps and he did mention that about his kid being bad age and wanting to coach them he's actually doing and obviously look the broadcasting. Gig was out there for him if he wanted it flip. Plenty of people weren't play for but he's GonNa follow his heart and go ahead and do the coaching now. The crazy part. Is you know Dave Logan up in Denver. Dave does the Bronx Radio and has for years. Dave stayed as a coach of high school football while doing the broncos radio a little bit different than network. Tv because the timing sure but he did that for years and by the way one a ton of state championships up there. They were very good. Congratulates Philip maybe extra congratulations. Mrs Rivers. Never but I don't think fill a lot of people talking around Philip. One year deal one and done in in Indianapolis. I know they've picked Jacobson. But I'll see says the starting quarterback there in twenty twenty one. I see Philip may be sticking around here. Certainly if he wins and gets to a super bowl against close talk level rich. If he plays it high level. Chris Ballard and Frank Reich. We'll be bringing another contract to him and I expect so to want to play. He loves playing football. He'll take over being ice coach from the Times right but he feels that he's planning that Philip rivers level which was just to your was pretty darn good level. Yeah I I could see that. I'm with you on that one could be and I don't think he's like a super threat of way could beat them. We'll find out about him rich if they're season really goes awry. Which I don't expect it to do Indianapolis expected to be very good all right now. I've got two minutes left with you. Charles. So who is the favourite in the in the? Afc is the defending champion world champion chiefs and I. I don't ask that question with any disrespect normally. Yeah do you do have to put the defending Super Bowl champions atop a conference that they that they won the ravens did finish the one seed last year and the chiefs and the Ravens never faced each other in the playoffs. Thanks to Derrick Henry and Ryan Tannehill and the titans who do you. Who Do you install as the favorites to win the conference that you'll be covering the most on CBS? I do install Kansas City because it feels like a college return. Twenty twenty two starters and rich unfortunately because of the pandemic they never really get tested in terms of resolving the off season. You know what it's like for a super bowl champ right. Everyone's doing commercials TV shows. The radio shows although the whole deal. They haven't had to really do that. It's been quiet one so they are the favorites. Baltimore has unfinished business. Obviously they got way in the off season free agency and in the in the draft. Don't don't overlook Tennessee. They announced to the world. We're GONNA play Tennessee football. Aren't we by Drafting Wilson? First Round right from Georgia. So it's GonNa be fun to see and look like rebels you the best Swiss. Watch guard that we've ever seen during the drafts by desk. So he he's good to go kingsbury called at the circus when we had him on talking about his His beautiful bond hang out draft set up. Oh my God clicking very one. Let's face it he want about. Or what the best for me was seeing get there not. Everyone had all the accoutrements around them even be. He had a glass of wine out there but he had the computers and sit out on the deck. And of course doing it very be a DAS. Rice class was killing. I didn't see a computer. I didn't see arrested stuff there. I got this under control folks. I'd winning not because it was all out in the Cabana. That's why I Charles Congrat- we're all jealous congrats on your new gig brother your deserve. Yeah and let let me get your when you get your new blazer with the CBS logo on it. Take a picture I want to see it. I still have my blazer right here in the closet of the rich Eisen Show Green Room. I still have mine from the. Us Open years ago. I love that I have. I have my original. Cbs Sports Blazer. When I've known side today turned a bit back in the closet. I've always been afraid to take it down and try it on. It's still facials you're still. You're still same slender man. You're a fine wine. Thanks for the call Charles. Thank you read. Charles Davis he's off on zoom by the way some sort of zoom zoom zoom. No one's getting I want because I don't think I'll be hitting broncos colts bills with with nets very much towards the end of the show. A NANCE is doing some golf zooming. That's why he's he's joining us from the very last segment. El Al Michaels is just chilling in the desert right now and so he's GonNa be calling in should i. Should I risk read to you? What his response last night. Because again I was I had on last night. I was emceeing if you will. Our three guests joined us all at once on the NFL network. Awesome Al Joe. And thence left to right as a matter of fact chronologically in order of our guest list today as well although we did not have. Jonathan banks the actor plays Mike and Better Call Saul involved all that but So during all this you know when other interviews are happening on the air and I'm sitting in my right desk position. I went to studio one because the Cameron Studio to the Internet speed wasn't fast enough. I don't to get into it. It was an interesting night in the rich. Dude everybody were I mean I don't even honestly what has tomato you know what's going on behind the scenes every single producer and director. Every single technical horse is sitting at home. Yeah it's amaz- all talking to each other through an APP and it's amazing how it all went down yesterday. It truly was an achievement. So I said to Al. I I don't. I don't know if you want me to read this on the air but I will do it anyway. I'm texting him back and forth. Steve when Nance can do it he can do it. Go back and forth. I asked him. Can he do the first segment on NBC and literally at the top of the one o'clock hour? He said he could do it. I go back to long story short. Al's GonNa Stick in the spot where he's going to be joining us. He's going to be joining us around fifteen minutes after the hour. An hour number two our first on NBC S. N. at it. I said let's stick with you calling around ten fifteen. Am Pacific. He wrote back the following on text as Shakira would put it. Whenever wherever says Al Michaels I mean did not have that on your Bingo? Carmichael texts have on my on my schedule released BINGO card. Jim nance talking copious amounts of smack in the direction of Joe Buck and Al Michaels last night about the game that he has all the Brady Games that everybody has. Everybody has to Brady. Games currently scheduled. Yes okay. That's I. They had to have figured that one out. I think you're right. That Brady Games are are Let me get this right here. Fantasy football name Rock Radio Tom Brady. In the buccaneers as you might imagine. Is the Beach Front property of the twenty twenty? Nfl SCHEDULE K. And so let me see if I got the buccaneers. Have we'll take your phone calls at eight four four two zero four rich in a moment. The buccaneers have five nationally. Televised Games. Okay five that is the most in franchise history one better than the two thousand. Three buccaneers. Why do I mention that? Well not only because it's the last that was the previous record holder but that was the year after they won the Super Bowl. You so signing Tom Brady gets the buccaneers one. More nationally televised game than winning. The Super Bowl earned the franchise in two thousand three. All right GRUDEN SAT. Put them all together. Brad Johnson. They got four Tom. Brady's getting them five. Gronk to I might have. I ever played three prime time games in a row at Vegas and week seven on Sunday night at the giants on Monday night so espn gets brady versus the team. That the franchise allies long gone. He's not walking through that door. Neither is David tyree neither. Is Mario Manningham? It's Joe Judge Coaching Daniel Jones but that game nonetheless filled with no doubt video. That you Brockman have no desire to re it. Nope that will be all over the world wide leader in sports in week eight and then in week nine the bucks have a Sunday night game against New Orleans so the other Brady Breeze. First Brady breeze goes to Fox. It'll be game of the week. Eighty breeze goes Sunday to Sunday night. Which also gets brady two weeks before and the rams we for him like the visit the visit by the rams to Tampa. That's Monday night or two week eleven. So that's two. Espn TRIPS for Brady. I told you the to NBC trips. Okay there's a Thursday night that Fox will have that Thursday's in Chicago Week five and Fox will get at New Orleans and week one and obviously you name it you know versus Green Bay. That'll be on Fox so I mention though to in terms of the Games that you on. Cbs We'll have him are the Tampa Bay Games. That where the box are home and the road game is an AFC team and those games for them okay where the visiting team is an AFC team. It's week for the chargers. Come to pay a visit. So you could put Nance and Romo in Tampa for that one. And then the mother lode. Deep into Sunday afternoon window baby the last Sunday in November the Sunday afternoon game of Thanksgiving Week. Oh yeah is mahomes amazing the chiefs visiting Tom Brady and I mentioned that to. Nance who basically said you could see it on my twitter feed at NFL. Twitter feed as well. He basically says he with all due respect job which was he's all due respect to you. Joe Buck that game a homes at Brady. That's the one that you want. I mean that you could say out of all of the Games is the defending. Mvp The defending Super Bowl. Mvp of the defending Super Bowl champion chiefs also brady mahomes has been already with mahomes fresh out of the gate. That deep Right who've brady breeze though is pretty damn good. And that's why they're serving up that piece of filet Mignon a week one. I mean Fox Green Bay and new. I mean they get to good afternoon game up. Just name them. All I mean even even Atlanta and Tampa Lantana walk. Great you're right. They're they're all every every single one of them. You put up whatever you want. Dumb the key matchups on PBS. We've got this already for for for others and in terms of like what your first of all I mean and I'll ask this of. Nats you are putting your. You can't flex this game preemptory right on chiefs box immediately immediately. If not sooner I think he put it on steelers cowboys to on November eighth. You're not touching that and you are not touching chiefs at Saints Either December Twentieth Hands Off. How many Hans no flex cards. Do you get good question. Two or three after. I think it's two or three that they gave again. The Cross. Flex Games is what you'RE GONNA HEAR. Nance use the phrase where you get an NFC matchup placed on your schedule even though AFC last. Sunday rams at Seahawks I mean hello about twelve bucks game rich. Do you think this is going to be the game with two teams? Have the highest combined record. Nfl history like what are the chances both teams only have one loss heading into that Gad? Are we looking? Too Far ahead of the hawks are going to be too good. I mean how often does it all play out like that? The chiefs have to visit Baltimore on a on a Monday night in week three injuries. You never know okay. But say say they're nine one the defending Super Bowl Champs and super bowl MVP. He had his knee on the side of his leg. At one point came back from that and they want a super bowl I get it but are they nine and one the boxer ten nine to agreeing. It'll be incredible. Aren't let's take some phone calls right here. Oh Yeah we can. You knew he would be here. You just knew it. This guy has been calling into our show shall we save him for the NBC? Should WE SAVE MATT? Yeah NBC. Matt I know you're on hold. No you probably got a baby. I'm going to save you for for our friends at NBC. Just to hear the the. Bill's love an angst four. Primetime Games do you own or rent your home. Sure you do and I bet it can be hard work you know what easy bundling policies with GEICO GEICO makes it easy to bundle your owners or mentors insurance along with your auto policy. It's a good thing too because you already have so much to do around your home. Go TO GEICO DOT COM. Get quote and see how much you could save. It's gyco easy. Visit DOT com today. That's GEIKO DOT COM GI O. Dot Com Alex in Queens New York. Let's go to Alex. Eight four four two zero four rich number dial. What'S UP ALEX? A you know so to me I look at the eagles situation and I see a guy and Carson Wentz who started five and six and three of his first four seasons. I looked at the fact that last year when the eagles were relatively healthy the first twelve games on earth and he started five and seven. I look at Nick foles and no one ever brings us up but Nick Foles is twenty four and six in his last thirty games as an eagle we know Carson wentz is a terrible record receives over five hundred. No many of the reports of many teammates not liking him. And here's who never won a playoff game guy who is terrible. Last three or four years and remember two thousand eighteen versus the easiest part of the schedule went. Start at five and six. Nick foles took over. That same team won out made the playoffs beat Chicago Chicago right and then was a drop pass away for maybe potentially setting up an NFC. Championship game burst. Iran's who by the way Nick foles that same year beat the rams in La. And let's be honest. The Rams lost thirteen to three super bowl. I have a really feeling that. If Nick foles in that. Super Bowl they win that game especially when he put forty one points the year before against the same exact defense that the Patriots had so this was the worst decision in NFL history ood super bowl MVP. Who has had tremendous success as an ego? We all know what he's done. Another but Abby Philadelphia Eagle. All he's done is one and a guy and Carson Wentz who is terrible for chemistry and we all know all the reports that came out and and we're seeing the results will Alex. Let me just jump in here first of all. Are you an eagles fan? I am not an eagles. No I don't. I don't dislike the Eagles I root for them when they have. Nick foles because of the success. Okay but Alex Alex Alex Alex Carson. Wentz didn't miss a a snap last year. He was the only got problem. He was the only guy but he was the only guy who didn't okay point. He's bad for chemistry when he's not on the field they win. Alex is not on the field big twelve and doing their last fourteen games in Carson. Wentz is not on the field and both of those games are against the teams in the NFL and even to take that even further in the playoff game versus walks before he got hurt he was getting shutout. Mccowan came in knowing brings us up but mccallan played really really well that game. Look Man. Alex I appreciate the call and I appreciate the passion my Gosh I can't I'm not here for the Carson Wentz. Hey or the Nick foles love. I'm here for but I mean just take a look at what happened down in Jacksonville. I mean where was the nick? Foles from Philadelphia. I know he didn't have the same team in in Jacksonville. But you could put Jack Jacksonville's running game with four net above the the running game of Philadelphia's until Mile Sanders began to show up in the season and Jacksonville's receiver position was kind of just like Philadelphia's where everybody's getting hurt whence answered every bell last year the conversation about Carson Wentz at this point when we're looking at the eagles schedule last year. We're talking about what happens when Wentz gets hurt now. That foles is Jacksonville. It wasn't if it's when and it didn't happen. It pretty good here for four thousand yards twenty seven touchdowns Sean. Jackson went out in September and Jeffrey hardly played after October. And a bunch of guys who you had to learn their names. And one of whom who caught the touchdown that put him in the playoffs because it was a great wentz throw and a great whence comeback was the quarterback from the University of Houston that Greg Ward that got converted. I'm I I think. Alex is in the minority right there. All right let's go to Matt and Oklahoma 'cause I just don't know when we're GONNA get him on the air on NBC until later on holding for an hour and a half. What's up Matt You do? And congrats brother. I know I couldn't believe it last night. It was really hard to say a bunch of bad words it. Pg Well I mean what would you say bad words your bills? You're rooting for them forever. It was it was bad whereas that joy years we've been circling the drain. Nobody wanted to see it. I'm kinda nervous though besides the underdog. I'm not nervous about this whole being the popular pick. I'm nervous I'm doing well. Here's the thing here's the thing and we've got the schedule up here and you know on occasion. We'll do win-loss win loss. So home for the jets. I think should be a win for you at Miami. That should be a win for you. Even though Miami is improved an okay. Home for the rams than at the raiders at Tennessee. So the question is when you welcome the chiefs into your house on week. Six when the cells enter the week six contest on a Thursday night with Kansas City. Strolling in. What's the record are you? Are you two in three? And everyone wondering what's going to happen board one. I'm writing it I don't care. Don't download the blazing. I'm living. So where's the one loss Rams Vegas or Tennessee? I think I think maybe Tennessee gets us. Their kid can't scares me. I mean you got you got New England on Sunday night right anymore. I love it. It's actually I know Brockman GonNa talk about them he can have stood instead and I don't care it's over it's done the is over. He's gone since it didn't Tampa. It's time welcome to the rest of us. Welcome to the real world realities. All right man. I love you to the bills as you noticed trained. They changed their twitter handle the prime time bills during the steadily show. Here's the issue viewing it. Here's the issue. How as got them Sunday night? Football home for Pittsburgh. The Jim Kelly Ball Buffalo and by the way you draw a straight line. I know they're not in the same division but they they're buffalo. You could say I think as the crow flies is closer to Pittsburgh than anybody else in their division as the crow flies. Let's say you draw a straight line. That's when Jim Kelly Jim. Kelly made the hall of fame and they had to move the festivities into the stadium. Which is where it's been for the forever. Those who don't know the reason why the festivities are inside the foot high school football stadium next to the hall is because when. Jim Kelly made the hall of fame. They could not use the usual spot for the hall of fame induction ceremony. Which was the steps of the hall and they would have this great lawn between the steps of the hall and the interstate that they would fill up in that sort of space but when Jim Kelly you draw a line straight from Buffalo New York Pittsburgh. Pa RIGHT DOWN TO CANTON. Ohio and it was an easy drive for everybody going Jim Kelly. That's a big game and the question is does end. Nbc Flex Out of that bad boy because it could be for a lot of marbles man if you're thinking the bills are winning the AFC east and they'll probably need a win it to stay in first or or keep their wheels from spinning. Pittsburgh with Big Ben where they're hoping you know he's healthy and staying healthy the entire season. The other. Two Games are not flexible. They are Monday night and they are at San Francisco and they are week. Sixteen at New England. Those are your bills nationally televised games. I mean that we'd sixteen could be for the division. I just love it. That is the sound you just heard the sound of a scarred. Nfl Fan who feels forever. My team is disrespected. My team is disrespect and bills. Fans are are at the leaders there. At the forefront of my team is disrespected they bengals fans are at the forefront of. Oh Yeah or Jaguar fans. Oh yeah you go to break all the time when my teams on the clock during the draft like I I? I'm in charge of when they take commercial breaks exactly lions fans. I hear that too. Yeah I hear that too disrespected. So mad has been calling for five years disrespect this disrespect that and now they get the respect and he's like I'm Harris about it. Let me tell you spotlight's now on now right. Exac expected to win right up. Don't let egg brother the Patriots. This is what's so impressive about what they did. They were expected to win the division every year. And you know what they did. They won the division every single year. Now it's two bill stern dude. Though and aren't let's talk. Don't blow it man. Let's talk. Patriots were brief bills. Sixteen old man. Today let's Talk Patriots for second. Thank you don week to Sunday night. Football I mean that could be Jarret Stidham in. I started his career. Neil fans yeah no fans. Maybe I mean what we were talking about this last night this can be one in five one one four eight. We were talking about this last night in my in my virtual group where we go on and that we have fun and The A game of chance and we zoom at the same time the question. What about this having fans sound piped into the stadium like thousands game fan sound piped-in not just for you to be hearing on the television set but piped into the stadium as directed by a fan grouping on an APP where you're hitting it loud loud loud it's third and long and rent a little directly connected to a fan grouping at home working on something like that right now obviously if the fans could sit there and they just blasted as loud as possible. You have to come up with a decibel level. That's commensurate to what the loudest would be. What do you think of that idea of crowd? Noise is still a factor in a home. Nfl Stadium and it still controlled by a fan grouping. That is either into it or not. What do you think of that idea? I think you guys had one too many bottles of wine last night. I don't know you're not far fresh because baseball wants to do a little bit. I would rather than that. I would rather have everything miked up and I want to hear what's going on in the field all the time and I know that's not gonNA happen. You're going to hear the Michael still be happen. You're still going to see another. Mike all going to be the same the difference. It's going to be so what so so Kansas City and Seattle are going to be loud stadiums than they always are. They always are. I mean they know that that's another. You know. Fan Issue that my stadiums lower than yours. You don't give us any respect about how loud it is. But I've been to stadiums. Yeah I mean it is. It is louder in New Orleans. It is louder in. Denver it is louder in Kansas City. It is louder in Seattle. Yeah just off the top of my head than many other places and the NFL landscape. And there's no arguing that yeah you could you to meet her out with Steve Mariucci all we there's an football I would take my spam eater out sound meter and we would sit and mooch would always come up to me and we. Kinda story which tells the story of the first time that he coached in Arrowhead. It's crazy as a visiting team and he was warned. Hey at the end of the national anthem when they see in the home of the brave land of the free and home of the brave. They'll say home of the chiefs and just wait for it and he's just standing there and he's in the national anthem as home of the shoes and he just like. Whoa look around. Yeah Yeah So. The twelve's you know connected by APP could affect a game in a way that the twelve's in person would affect again or do you have how you honestly. I do not know how you would police. That would be like someone from the have a bunch of eight-year-olds sitting there. You Know Button GonNa. You would have to have a week official in charge of the sound box. Yeah it would be. It's why not so that fans you're still home but it's still let me hear you let me hear you. I don't know a QB goes like this. How do I joined late so a much more sober night for me right? You know I joined very late. Well right out. I thought it was the goal working on when baseball players to have something like that that I'm involved have crowd of crowd noise and the ambiance of baseball's half of what makes baseball amazing. I mean when you're growing up playing baseball doing people in the stands or your parents by you know. Obviously crowd noise crowd. Noise is very intense in the in the playoffs. And what have you an important? You know when the towels waving and everything is going crazy and it's very difficult and that's what makes you feel like in. May when you're watching your team and the opponent reaches base in the third inning with a guy on I and you're like okay but in October. You're like the game's over that's gave this guy and I it's going to score and they're gonNA put up a crooked number this game's over. Why can't my pitch throw strike like the crowd? Noise does add to that. I totally agree but all those come back just give me the crack of the Bat Aamir in football. I know we're up against a real quick. What's going to be an issue is if say Florida allows fans stadiums but California does not know. An-and so what are we by the way this is. This is to be continued. I have a feeling this is what June and July is going to be a lot of conversation about sports leagues. Starting up. What fans roles can be throwing that out there right now when we're talking about week to if there's no fans New England at Seattle's totally different ball of wax and if there's fast one hundred percent Al Michaels will be calling in. I up Joe Buck second up. Then we'll take a break. Your can be by the way throughout their entire show at eight. Four four four rich. We'll take a break from a little bit of the scheduling talk unless Jonathan Banks wants to go through some part of the schedule. The man who plays Mike Erma trout from better call Saul and also breaking bad will join us. And several gymnasts. That's how rolling in the next couple of hours. Podcast one presents.

And you're you're basing that on the last time you saw South Carolina play in the in the the they. Paul Johnson with that one. How about Susan tickets for about fifteen or is it girl on? And I'll tell real hard. Sure. But I'm okay old. The all I'm a corvette will win. But it was the quarterback at clubs this coming year. Yeah. Yeah. By the way, I mean, I'm making fun of South Carolina losing its last game. Alabama didn't look too hot either in its last game. So. It's first lady it's hard to predict. I do think that would be a. Bit of a nervy game for Alabama. I I remember two thousand and ten and a very overheated Williams Brice stadium. I saw that game up close like you did. And I know there'll be a lot of conversation about that Steven Garcia's in for a lot of interviews. Come come September. Many years. Limit in the source. Go. Unday we beat Alabama my daddy passed away that morning. Oh my goodness. And I drove up in mother here or in Alabama beating us pretty good. A win else came back out and they wanted to be. Alabama. And I said, I believe me Mr. up the south that. And that's not it's funny now, but it wasn't funny that no, I can't imagine. Now. Listen, I appreciate you getting into does. Thank you, very much and you call again soon. Thanks so much. Let's continue. How about another caller from South Carolina Sawyer is up next. How are you Sawyer? No involve it is great. Thank you for the call might. I won't talk about they had the Clinton fans think that site beat Alabama. And all that that the ACC is now the premier conference college football. Well, they have won three of the last six national championships. But they'd be playing the weakest and football. Well, I don't get. I wouldn't really. I believe I didn't see at least three of the year two thousand dollars a year. Hey, I like ask you a question. If had played in the last year, would you like to tell me who they would have lost to? Well, I believe it was in the west. They could had lost the Mississippi State LSU. Yeah. Alabam I got news for you. I think I think Clinton would have been undefeated last year in the SEC. I'll see the Pac twelve the NFC. It really doesn't matter. Well. Yeah. But I think the golf I'll thank you. I've got a shot up. Yeah. Sure. I won't say go dulls. Okay. He he certainly gave shout out Vernon. How you doing Vernon? Hey, what's going on? What's going on our file real doing great? Hey all week. I've been here in a very it LSU fan calling and complaining about seeding and stuff like that. And I'm just going to explain to of oil something, I they got a great team probably best one this. He see. But you you're judged your judge don't matter what anybody says you're judged on who you play in the non conference, and they got a week non conference schedule, and that's going to hurt him. And no matter what they do that. That is the reason why they're not a number one seed and any got nothing to do with bias. They've got nothing to do with. They wanna put Kentucky and Tennessee in their ticking. Tennessee played Fe every top top ten teen in the country. Last year Turkey, Tennessee, Auburn they all play. They played anybody. Now now back when Bill Brown was with down there. They played everybody. They've had holding home with Duke every year, they if they wanna put the failures that somebody pointed to to their ministration for having a weak non conference schedule, and that's all I have to say about. Thank you very much. We're up against the break. We will continue talking a lot of the college basketball college football. On a Wednesday after noon, we're coming right back. You listening to Paul finebaum show podcast. Sheldon nichols. Joining us from down in Baton Rouge. She covers the team for the advocate show. No, he's great to have you on even even on Wednesday. I know I know you're states probably having a tough time today. Good afternoon. Yeah. It's a hangover kinda day in Louisiana, but I'm going to Florida. So it's kinda it's kinda strange. It's it's cold here in Florida. It was unbelievable today. I thought I was gonna get eighty degrees. And it was about thirty six this one and one woke up so kind of kind of backwards. They in Gainesville, Florida. It's been cold all over the world lately. But let's talk first of all we we were talking about. What's ahead tonight is certainly a big a big big mound over comment that mean Florida's very capable. They're also capable of not playing at a high level. Let's let's first of all it's kind of take take the audience through the end of the season. And obviously the SEC term before we start figuring out. What's after that? Well for LSU, you know, win tonight with lockup no worse in a second season SEC tournament. Which is you know, obviously, you won't be one. But if you can't be one to be nice, and you so you'd be opposite of the number one team. So they. They're shooting for this. This win tonight to try to kind of lock that down, you know. And then if they win that they would, you know, have a chance to have no worse in a share of SEC title, which would be the first value in ten season. So since two thousand nine so, you know, a lot at stake for this team. You know, they will pick six in the preseason. And you know, maybe they were expectations. But maybe some people thought that you know, it just wasn't the bad. Great. But it's turned out to be a really really good season for them. And you know, if if they get a first second see like I said, a win tonight would clinch at no worse in the second seed. So that's the immediate goal for this team tonight. I'm really interested because I remember when they were picked six I mean, you knew this program was ascending under. We'll we'll way based on the recruiting. But what what happened? What what turn this team from middle of the pack to a chance to accomplish what you've just got three saying winning the SEC? Well, I think one of the big things was they had to learn how to play together they had to learn how to clo- being, you know, they've been all on campus since June, you know, the ginning of summer school, but still, you know, you have to get that kind of cohesiveness when you play on the court and you play them at high speeds, and and you know, just just trying to get everybody to mesh find the rotation will Wade was trying to early in the season trying to find the right rotation. And I want to say, you know, back in late December, you know, he found he found an eight-man rotation that he really likes and one of the things he had to do is after eleven games. I believe he could your pay smart out even had been playing greed point guards. Devante smart, of course, foresaw freshman from Baton Rouge who who is one of their first big commitments last summer year before last. But anyway, he he was he had been playing the three the for yard and scallop as was too. And and come out waters was the point. The the true point. But they were all take turns. And then so they they needed a little more lanes. You need a little more out on the wing. Devante smart six four, but they have a guy named Marlin Taylor who's six five and to jump out of the gym as a lot of people have seen in the highlights in seen throughout the season. But they put Marlin Taylor in the lineup for that twelve game. I can't remember which game it was. And they kind of just took off from there. And they started rebounding the ball better. They lead SEC an offensive rebounds. They weren't even close last year to doing that. So they've they've improved rebounding. They've cut down on turnovers and things that just kinda come together for him talking to show the Nichols about the Tigers. And certainly made quite a lot of attention. They lost early on their loss twice in one weekend. Believe in November. I don't know if that was the reason why took to the national media so long to pay attention to them. But what what what is your view of that? Because it just seemed like we knew about them here in the SEC. But. Are the rest of the country was slow to the party. Well, they were ranked I wanna say twenty third in the preseason AP preseason poll, and then they went to the tournament advocate invitation on Orlando, and they they beat Charleston, which is a pretty good team. And then they lost the Florida state and triple over. I mean in overtime when it had a nine point lead with three minutes to go. And then the next day they just slept walk through a loss Oklahoma state, which just infuriated we're way that they just didn't play. Well, they they didn't have the head in the game. And then a couple of weeks later after exams final exams. They went to Houston had a fourteen point lead. If memory serves right with nineteen minutes ago of a very good Houston team, which has been in the top ten lately kind of drop out of the top ten week, but they lost their and when once once they lost their it seemed like everything kind of started the click after that. And they've only lost twice since then they lost to Arkansas by one. At home. And then they lost a Florida about five two weeks ago tonight in Baton Rouge when they had a chance to win the end the regulation had a chance to win or tie at the end of overtime and miss both of them badly. So it was kind of you know, they've lost to really close games that Omar why we'd be looking at maybe, you know, really long winning streak dead and one ten row before they lost the Arkansas. So they've they've had some really good games. And in a couple of you know, they wished they hit back, but the one I think they really wish they had back as the the Houston game and obviously Florida state game. But those games are the ones that really stick out. But you know, like, I said they just seem like they've just gotten cohesiveness about them and they play they play really, well, they hustle everyone. I'm hustle. They dive all over the floor balls. There's no lack of hustle on this thing. And conversely here you got the you know, what what was it the Missouri game where they came from what almost fourteen down maybe fourteen down to win. There was another game. Like that. So I mean this team has been literally all over the court losing big leads and and and coming from way behind yet. A Missouri game was the one that really really kind of you know, you know, they were down fourteen with two await play wind up getting into overtime. And then they won an overtime. And then the I think it was Mississippi State. They were down ten I wanna say what about four four maybe five minutes play got that one over common one. So this is a a scrappy team. You know, they've they've been down by double digits like four or five times in the second half of the eight no starred in SEC Klay on the road. And they've come back to win. They just seem like the never they never give up the other day Saturday at Alabama. They were down, you know, eight points in the midwest. Through the second half and six or eight and came back and won that one. So they they seem like they're never they never give up. They never seen like out of it. They all one of the things that we're way there's always preached since he's gotten here was six minute game. And if he always thinks that if we hang around hanging around the hanging around what six minutes the play we'll have a chance, and that's that's kind of been proven again. I'm and again this. Show before you go the story that I am confused by and maybe we don't have much clarity. As is the story that came out from Yahoo. The other day about him being subpoenaed for this trial, which is after the season. And I mean, this has been a confusing case for nearly two years. A lot of speculation a lot of innuendo. What what what are you hearing in relation to? We'll wait, and what is the level of concern about that? Well, not a whole lot. You know has come out of it. And and obviously use that talking about it wouldn't talk about it in October of say that you know, it was taken out of context. I think I think there's been a lot of, you know, they don't know the whole context of the recordings or whatever. But I just think that you know, he he doesn't wanna talk about obviously. And and there's a whole lot of gray area there at you know, we we just don't know the answer to and and is. I guess when April April twenty second is supposedly I think when the trials supposed to start, you know, I guess we'll find some clarity. Maybe. But you know, the point was back in October was the name was just thrown around. And you know, and no accusations made, I guess and the judge wouldn't let it in in the record. So that left more questions like you said, you know, the to wonder about what's what's the deal? But I would in that, you know, not a whole lot to be set on on either. You know, we'll where waves far out of school with part. They're all just kind of you know, you know, just keeping a quiet for now. And then, you know, I guess maybe we'll see when when the time comes Sheldon, many many, thanks. I was about saying joined the warm weather, but you've already answered that question. So enjoy the game that I realize it's a. It's a it's a nice day in Florida was sunny at least chilly, but at least in sunny, so that's best that there's a the upside of that part spring is around the corner. We'll talk to you soon. Hope see in Nashville next week. Thank you, very very much too little, okay? Great to Sheldon Nichols on giving us the latest on the LSU Tigers. We'll talk to Sean farnum at the top of the next hour until then your phone calls at eight five five to four to seven to eight five. Listening to the Paul finebaum show podcast. And we're back. Glad you're here. It's been a fun show this afternoon and more of your phone calls at eight five five two four two seven two eight five. Let's check out Sam in South Carolina. Hello sam. Hey there. How are you? I'm calling buffers to the referees a referencing the SEC basketball games. You're especially Mississippi State coach says a rougher he's on the floor as much as some of these players and referees. Don't call technical fouls on them and in the ACC to certain things clubs coaches on the field a lot. I just met one enough. You know, there's sometimes ruined with this both of Mike that where you're not supposed to your you have a you have a box in you, you're limited. But it's like everything else in basketball Sam how was watching the Duke Wake Forest game last night. And I'm thinking they ever called three seconds anymore. I mean, they just they just there are there are so many. There are so many things that you can and can't call and then they get ticky tack. But that's pretty well. I mean. The the referee is supposed to rain the coaches in. And when they don't do it. It's on them. All the other night when Mississippi State place, South Carolina. Yeah, they called one technical on. But it was for runs down from the pass along. But several terms even spending over the black line by the referee, roughly didn't say nothing to it. Now. You're absolutely right. Well, that's that's one of these as we'll we'll maybe get some officials on about every sport is difficult. I would argue basketball might may very well be the most difficult. Hey, thank you for calling. Sam really good to have you on. Let's continue with more phone calls. Kyle is in Virginia here on Wednesday. He Kyle you're on the air. They fall big fan of show on time listener, I just wanted to bring a point of previous caller had made about when they call the ACC one of the worst conferences in college football. And then the power five conferences, and I it is without a doubt be worse conference in all power five college football. I mean, they have. One team that has any chance of winning the Nashville Chebbi tip coming into this year and next year. Clemson and outside of Clemson. Nobody you have. Yes, PC you have Alabama. Auburn Georgia Tech saying him LSU. I mean, you have team after team that could possibly make a run to the playoffs and outside of Clinton the ACC nobody I mean, there's nobody. Well, you're right. I mean, he was the absolute decline of of FSU. This is become a one ball. They would call it. A one bid league. I it in Clemson has own the league. And I think you know, I understand the argument against Clemson. It used to be the same way against FSU back in the day. They would be Florida on a decent basis. And and Sperry would say, well, they don't play anybody. They have a three game schedule. Clemson schedule is a little more challenging, but but anyone who would argue that Clemson would have had difficulty last year anywhere. They they they they were in a different world. I know this struggle. Against syracuse. Listen, I I watched their season very closely. But that was that was a phenomenal team at the end of the year. But but my I probably do right. They can beat any team at any point in the SEC. But the Don let the SEC specifically the SEC west week after week having to get up for a team like in Mississippi State, but in their conference, I'm do they play Wake Forest. I mean that that they're they struggled with therapies last year. I know that telly Brian as their quarterback. But I I mean, I I just can't imagine them being able to get up to that level every week without any boss. Well, I mean, I'm looking at their schedule this year, and and they start with Georgia Tech, which is a joke. Let's be honest. And then they have am at home, and they go to Syracuse, which were they they lost its here. Accused two years ago, they have Charlotte which is glorified high school team there at UNC chuckled chuckled, Florida state at home at Louisville joke. Boston College at home joke. Wofford joke at NC state snicker. Wake far laughable route, South Carolina. You're right. They have about three games scheduled totally grew. I just I and then they play one of those tomato cans CC championship game. Yeah. If it ninety minutes from their home exactly, and I may come in fully fresh into the playoff. And I it's a joke. And I think that's one of the reasons album came in limping at national championship game. We'll be that's the part. I don't understand though. So Alabama has three weeks between the the the SEC championship game and the play offs. And then they have another ten or twelve days. It's not like, it's a continuous schedule. I mean. Yeah, that's true. That's true. But I want you know, again, I want they're not listen. I I understand the argument. I'm not shooting down entirely. I just Alabama didn't exactly play a lot of great teams last year. Either. The SEC championship that. Really? Hello brutal. Yeah. You can't you can't get any tougher than what. What obama? I mean, Alabama's last three games were against what was Georgia ranked number four five in the country at the time. Yeah, they played the. Four and then the two and number two. Yeah, I play Pittsburgh, which barely had a winning record and people mock Alabama. I know they played Duke next year, which is a joke. Of course, I still have not enough not enough that brought up about clemson's horrible schedule. Okay. Well, I get I get your point. Thank you very much for the call. Do appreciate it. Jay w in Tennessee up next. How are j w. Oh, wow. Afternoon. Paul can after name. Yeah. Listen, some your discussions today. I just won't know if you clarify or Tennessee here we football basketball school. Well, right now looks like a basketball school. Right now. Yeah, we currently we kinda real real please Rick Barnes, and and the players razzing up, and we'll see how they do. I don't know ex- predictions. Final four. It's a fiction again rest. We love it. Well it. Hey, I don't wanna say in mazing. Thank you. Yeah. Thank you once again for taika Macau now kinda still little Blake Shelton thing here. Kinda kinda like I feel like I'm in great presence listening all your your host. And we'll see you and Martin John Yeah. I've never been. I've never been in the same sentence with Blake Shelton. If you put the same sense with Blake Shelton Miranda Lambert, then we got something to talk about. It's all good. We're we're all connected pile. We all connect today. The main reason I'm calling. I kinda got I'm long winded. I do apologize. I live all the callers and fans, and I just love his show the majority of its great. Thank you. But anyway, the situation here, you know, the travesty on these weather patterns I had had assigned down there that got close to the situation in Florida here within the last year, and yeah, it can it can be heart wrenching, the worry. And like, I said, we all well pull together, you know, with minds heart, and so and. And I just wanted to be sure. And and you know, or or thoughts or with everybody, and you know, it just it just so sad. And and I won't ask you a question disease disease situations across the country the fires in California. And of course, I know we're sports platform. And that's great because I love it. I let her horse. I live all the callers. But you know, maybe maybe it's time. I know what the anniversary is over here. The young man the night in Mississippi. And we've all got some say I'll we really do. So I don't know don't say what j w I don't remember. Again, I've lived in the south. So when you live in the south you deal with hurricanes, and you do tornadoes, but I mean, I I was last fall. It seemed like the hurricanes were everywhere everywhere. I went or the hurricanes were raking havoc the tornadoes the other day or or just unprecedented. Really? We haven't had something like that since twenty thirteen. It's your we've been there, you're in your Tennessee. And I think I'm not that far from me. I mean, we when we've gone through the rainiest six months on record. I mean, I don't know. I I don't know what's going on with the weather. I it's it. It's literally out of control. I realize we're sports show. But. It's hard to it's hard to describe. And even California it's been cold. I think read we're LA has did not get out of the sixties in February. Do you do you know what's going on or any? I just wondered I mean, we're sitting over there. I thought you researching. Well, I do I do believe I I was listening. Download about a hundred things while the way to come on. So I don't know. Somebody's folk feel like going on states because I have such affirmation for fair buddy on the show. I mean, everybody's dry. Leather, collars, mature, thank you very much. It's nice to be true to your school. I have no problem with that. I mean, I'm I can't help but get pretty excited about what Tennessee he's doing basketball. Now at this point in the year. I think you're you have to realize there two more games and then the tournament. But I think most people have gotten a pretty big pretty big kick out of that. That's been a remarkable story to watch. Hey, thanks for the call pre. She'd appreciate your kind words we are heading to a break. Go meteorologist coming in. Here is your told me. What's your? Let's get you know, it's always cold in here. Because all the doors are open more of your phone calls at eight five five to four. That's what we can breathe. I five to four to seven to eight five mortem. Listening to the Paul finebaum show podcast. We'll go back. Glad you're with us, and Harry down in the big easy on the day after how are you Harry? Good ball. I wanted to make a comment and see what you thought about it about basketball, college, basketball and more, particularly of coaches who seem to know when they get a technical foul. I one I saw this year with Jamie Dixon's TCU twin road game he was behind by by eight points. Obviously gotta technical on purpose. And it changed the whole game around and then west night coach girl he was behind. He got that technical and the whole game changed ball. Don't you think it's sort of a semi science, those good coaches? I mean, there is no it's intuition you, and you know, sometimes you can you can you can make a mistake. But I think coaches realized they have to do something. It's like calling an onside kick or fake punt. If you get it, right? Everyone loves it. If you in basketball, if you get it wrong, it just makes you just compound the situation, but Pearl Pearl knows what he's doing. And you know, what I think the officials know what's going on too. Sometimes I wonder if guys like Pearl don't tell if there's women beginning. I wouldn't be surprised. I mean, that's the way you do it in these guys are friendly before the game. I mean, they're always on top of each other. I mean. Yeah. And you walk over say, listen, I'm about and as long as you feel officials will let you know I've sat at courtside enough times when they say come on. You're not getting away with that. Again. You know, it's over. Think sometimes Bali get behind by eight to ten points, and they figure what do I have to lose? But when you have three good teams sometimes five up last night was a prime example of that coach Pearl did it. So I just thought I'd make comment, and I'm enjoying the show, and you have a good show, Paul. Thank you. Great to hear from you. Let's continue with more phone calls. Carl is in Kentucky. How are you Carl fine? Paul and good afternoon to you. Thank you follow. There's been a lot of discussions about Alabama basketball. I don't understand they consternation. I'm going to predict that they'll win the NC double A tournament the same year that Kentucky wins the college football playoff. You know, Carl I would tell you this Kentucky football came lot closer to this year the Alabama basketball. Well, they did. But that that's the exception. I hope we can continue that. But I doubt it, you know, six six eight seven five season for Kentucky football is not bad now, and you know, five hundred plus for Alabama basketball. The fire star basketball players are not knocking on the doors. You're right. And I've always felt Kentucky basketball in Alabama football. We're we're we're one in the same. They are almost impossible to differentiate and the foot. They all have basketball program has had success. But it's it's been so far in the past. You've you probably remember I mean back in I mean in the seventies and even the eighties, Alabama, Kentucky, Tennessee were really the the kingpins and basketball. But it it's they've been bad for so long that it's hard for anyone to remember unless you're. Fifty plus, right. Just one other comment, Paul? I'll let you go. It's I think it was last week, but I really appreciated the comments you get to the gentleman from Ohio who broad brushed the south home. They racism. Yeah. And I really I really appreciate that keep up the good work. Thank you Carl. I mean, there's a fine line in defending the south. But that guy just put me over the edge. And I I'm not one of the just blatant blanket blanket defense things just to defend them. But when you when you when you paint a broad brush, you're going to get you're going to get a response, Darryl is in Kentucky on the air next. Hey, Darryl night ball. Thank you. All right. I wanted to ask you something. I applaud Kentucky basketball for a long long time. But in your opinion is this maybe the best Tennessee team. Tennessee is ever put on floor. Very possibly, you know, I I was in Knoxville for the last great. I mean, Tennessee's had some good teams Bruce had a team about ten years ago that that was outstanding. But but I always thought the best Tennessee team. I've ever seen was the one with Ernie Grunfeld in Menard king they had about three or four other players on that team team never really seemed to do anything in the turnament though, which it was forgotten about. But I think this team is made may even though the talent on that team. I mean you had to NBA all pros. I think I think from a cohesive standpoint, this is the best team I've seen here. So you have I have thought of beginning to the season. I like I said I've been a Kentucky fan all my life. But I've had real uneasiness about this particular Kentucky teams here. Yeah. I just don't think this team is coherent or as strong as what Calabria's had for the past. Season. I think you're right about that. I mean, they have the potential, but I anyway, we have an hour to go here. Thanks for being a part of the show.

What's in your wallet Capital, One NA member? FDIC. But fried passion than pageantry of college football leaves here. The is the Paul finebaum show. Our four podcast go back where you have reached the final hour of the week and of this month. Yes. The figure by to make. We say Hello to more callers, and Tracy is in North Carolina, and you're next up. Hey, tracy. Hey, paul. Thanks for taking my call man. Hey, I just a couple of quick thing interview with Pat dye yesterday. It was fantastic. You did a great job. And John Mark, or stew, Craig job, keeping getting back on the line. But I've never been never been an Auburn fan, but always been Pat dye fan. So great interview, thank you. Hey, and I wanted to ask you Jeremy Prue a couple of days ago. And appreciate you have an M on. Let me I wanna sound like math from San Antonio per minute. Kill your best educated. Guess on Tennessee record is your. I would probably, I'm thinking seven five eight and four but I'd probably go seven and five. Here's a scheduled for those of you who are not watching television, Georgia state is the opener BYU Chattanooga. That's manageable than at Florida. Georgia at home, Mississippi State at home at Alabama, South Carolina, UAB, Kentucky, Missouri and Vanderbilt. You know what I may I may amend that I'm right now? I've see one two three. I think they may I think I I'm, I'm gonna say that. I see four losses. I'm going to stay with seven and five. I saw another game. I don't think they can win. Let's where I'll have to seven and five. Which we'll be improvement. So it would be, I think five. Depending on how some of the games go, I just think it's something to build on. I just don't see them ready to win those road games. And I think you're talking about Florida, Missouri. Kentucky. That's a difficult schedule. And you know that's not that's not a slam dunk. But, but I just think I think the program is ascending. And if you look back last year, they didn't want a couple of games that they weren't supposed to. But I, I think overall winning on the road will be extremely difficult. Yep. Absolutely. I think I my wife from higher on our fiftieth anniversary trip to Alaska. First time the last next week all my and I'm gonna try to call in. So have John and Mark court. Let me ask you like it on the linear ask you this. Congratulations on being married, fifty years, where are you going because I've always wanted to go there, and I'm looking for ideas. We are flying in Anchorage. Okay. And then instead of taking us cruises that everybody complains about, they'll take them, and then they complain about it. We're going to drive down the Homer, stay down there for about three days. We're gonna drive back and go up to the now national park and a cabin up there for two or three days, a while and just kinda do it all of the road, we do have a half day, a little cruise thing that we're taking to see some visors, but it's only a half day, the rest time we're just gonna drive and look, take pictures. And what? What's the flight time to Anchorage? It depends on the flight. We're going to have to go up. We're going out of Greensboro through Atlanta to Minneapolis and then to Anchorage. Okay. But if you went from Charlotte, if you had a direct from Charlotte, where you're at, and they probably do our direct place from Atlanta. It's about a seven hour. Okay. So, like, yeah, I was curious. I, I mean you see, you know where it is. You just don't know how far it is. Yeah. It's it's, it's a good distance. We ours is broken up because I didn't want to be on the plane for seven to nine hours. So that's why did this. I was on the plane the other day, nearly six hours and after a while it starts to and I've been on much longer flights. But it starts to drive you crazy. I agree. Stay flying nowadays. It used to be fantastic. I used to travel, you know, over half the year I was on flights. You know every single week on her too. I just got so burned out on anyway. That's why we're well. You guys have a great sharla up. Yeah. I don't know. It wasn't as angry from here. They're probably making. Okay. Well, Atlanta's got a little better. But yeah. Okay. Meeting on the airline. I'll bet that you could get a direct one out of Charlotte. I will find that out. Well, you tell me how it goes. I'm really I'm really eager to hear. Let you know what? I'll try to call him next extra. Great here from you. That's pretty good. You're in Alaska. Right. What would you do an outing? Let's check your next. With Andy who's in Mississippi place. I have been many times. Andy good afternoon. Get after nine Paul Anka. Raleigh, what's point USA, fifty first time caller? Thank you. Big, dan. Mullen fan, of course I'm a bulldog. I just wanted your thoughts or do you think do you think Florida has a chance to plan, maybe in the playoffs or making and for national championship in the near picture as Dan Mullen has their coach? Yeah, I do. I don't think it's this year, but but I think. They're not that far away. They just need to stockpile a little bit more. But I think Mohan in that setting is, is going to be successful. He was successful, Mississippi State, and you're not both know that is a big challenge to, to play at the highest level with that recruiting base. Yes, I'm splitting between Alabama. Oh, miss. And I guess you control southern into that, you know, were densely populated state, not that we don't play it hostile football. If you're doing so many players to go around. That's right. And I just think he's a wonderful coach. I just think he gets the most out of all that late. And on offense you never know what he's not only that I think he is among the very best play callers in the country and that matters. When I mean, Florida has so many built in advantages unfortunately, for Florida they have come up with some of the worst coaches agree. And you can't even even those. Guys have had some success. Maybe it's a cliche, but it's it's hard to screw up Florida. But they've done it a couple of times now. Well, I think they got the right man. They laze. We had to lose them, but we understand. You know, he came into starve, only in beta us and he did it with what we thought was a mediocre team. But you know what are the end up doing when he let me we had him on the other day wins? What, what, what is your level of competence, and Joe Moorhead? You know, this is what I sort of looked at. I mean we ended a year last year. It's my help a year with what might be the number one or two stance tonight, saying, I'm not really sure. And then we ended up end up in Bob gangs of, you know, he's going to need to do something pretty close to, to earn my confidence. And he came on the other day, and he, he, he used the line about being the most successful first year, coach at Mississippi State. Well, I got news for Joe Andy he was giving a gift by Dan Mullen. No, there's no doubt about that. And I, I, I mean, I, I thought the the bowl game was embarrassment. The Florida game was really tough to, to watch. I remember being there that weekend. And I knew I knew what that game meant to state fans. And well maybe you look at them all. I mean, he knows our personnel for immature and play away for. Our strengths. But, you know, for more head to me, I think he's a good coach. I just think he's got a lot revolving sleeve mainspring in the right people to feed his offense. Everybody's these seeing the state is or good for reading. And so, you know, like I said, we ended up last year with one of the top defenses in the niacin. And I guess I'm Brian, you know you win championships. Nobody thing it simply lose that we lose five games. It's a fair assessment and I, I like the guy. But I just if you told me if you said, you know, tell me where this program will be in two years. I, I couldn't I couldn't do it. I don't know. I couldn't make it anyway. I just wanted thoughts on Dan Mullen big, big day, Valentine's. We had him on this and I was in bucking, thank you. Really good to hear from you. We still have time fifty minutes to be exact and you can call us at eight five five to four to seven to eight five mortar comes to listening to the Paul finebaum show podcast, then is in Arkansas. Greetings and kudos. Professor bomb wanted to hear that salutation. Oh, Paul love you in the finebaum family until those fillers in the booth. They're doing great and kudos dog your staff as well. Thank you. I wanna talk about the alcohol sales in college football in the SEC stadiums. I'm again it, but I know that that's not gonna have any impact, but I do want to relate, a personal anecdote for many years. My eldest, brother who's a radiologist had absolutely wonderful tickets at both Little Rock and Fayetteville razorback game. Do you remember the and we would go, and we would we would sit somewhere between the forty eight and the fifty yard line. Thanks to his generosity. And there was there, there was no officially sanctioned alcohol at either warm memorial stadium or razorback state. But if you'll recall the hog hats, you know, the plastic hub that sits on your head or sure I can't speak to the current version of that. But the previous version. You could stick an entire could has fun in the talk in that Hogue hat and weird into the state and I can speak from personal experience. This is the absolute God's true. Now, there were people taking class, they take in half pints, fine. But if you were wearing that hog hats, you could get you in there, and so naturally. Yeah, there was lots of alcohol in the stadium. But you had to sneak it except as you mentioned before, if you have some type of box and up there say, I'm sure this works reform. Immoral in Little Rock as well. But up in Fayetteville I have passed by that Sadie the day before a game and seeing the trucks of the liquor liquor distributors just pulled up and unloading cases and cases of beer and boxes and boxes of hard liquor. If they're gonna do it, open it up equally to everybody Prager. And I'll listen to your comments now. I want to say, we'll pigs sui good to hear. Yeah. I, I agree. That's why a lot was made of this, this progress and just be transparent about it and make equitable. That's, that's what we're saying here. Ryan is up next in Tennessee. Hello, ryan. Hello. How are you? First time caller for sure. Our pre show. Yeah. I just wanted to ask, why don't you see promising high school coaches get a shot to coach on the d one low? Well, I think some do with me. I mean, Chad Mars was a was a high school coach in Texas. He finally got a chance and Gus malzahn was high school coach in spring Dale, Arkansas Gus malzahn was was a high school coach in Memphis. I think I mean those are three examples of SEC coaches, and I bet you could find a lot more. It's not easy. But it does happen. Jeremy Prue was I mean he he was a high school coach at Hoover high school fifteen years ago. Yeah. Two days. Yeah. Absolutely. But rush pros rush post was another one. But he, he kind of his run, rush. Rush left there in a scandal. He went to go coca Coca-Cola won a couple of championships and left there in a scandal. So, yeah. Yeah. I was reading more high school in Cincinnati to Notre Dame head coach. Yeah. The do very well. Is it like you said it is tough? But it just seems like a towpath when, when you start off in high school, and you have to how. The Bill Clark at UAB he was a high school coach in, in practical. I believe that's where it was. He got a job. I think Jack state now he's at UAB this guy could coach anywhere. I mean he's one of the best coaches in the country. I listen. I'm not telling you. It's easy. I know a lot of high school coaches and and you know, they coaching entire career win championships. And they never get a shot, but, but I think I think I think it's easier today than ever been, though, for the, the very best to get an opportunity somewhere. Yes, sir. Absolutely. Well, I, I really appreciate that. Thank you. Thank you. Well, it's nice of you to call and it's a good topic guide. You glad you brought it up. Blake is in new or is in New Jersey. Hey, what's going on? Hey, how are you fall? We are doing well. The ask you a couple of questions about MRs the thankful for what did you think about how Tommy seasons depends states grad transfer, and I zu the case thing transfer are going to know with for more was more. Yeah. Yeah. I asked Moore her that the other day. He's really calm. John Hayes, one follows pen, say very closely, and John, you have much of an opinion on this. Tommy stevens. Yeah. Yeah. Of course, you know, he's a guy and I I'll start by saying, I, I was told Paul that he left Penn State because James Franklin wouldn't guarantee him the job to me. What does that mean that Joe Moorhead did he, he's going to start from Mississippi State? So I think you start their baseline and he's a kid that is exactly like Nick FitzGerald, but a better accurate passer. So all the frustrations that you had with Nick FitzGerald last season getting the ball down the field. I think Tommy Stevens if somebody that steps in and he gets the job done. And by the way, he can get outside the pocket and run, maybe not as offensive as FitzGerald was. But at the same time, if it's a second five and Joe Moorhead wants to run his own read Tommy Stevens. He could talk. Ball and run for five easily. But with that said, I appreciate the input. But what about case do ki ay on Thompson Keating Thompson, who is the man who was, Nick Charles backup? I think that's a great question. And that, by the way, that's why why lead with Tommy Stevens getting the job. I just I don't understand why he would transfer somewhere where he's going to be in a competition and that being the reason why he left his previous school that makes sense to me whatsoever pay Martell. Did it though? He's not guaranteed to Miami job. Right. Well, I don't know the backstory of Tate Martell, as far as what was. But I like I said, I know for a fact James Franklin would not give him a guaranteed job. And that's why he left the program. Good to hear from David Blake. Thank you very, very much. Michael is in Gainesville on this Friday afternoon, Michael, I already pulled. Thanks for taking my call. Thank you, tough start to my weekend. I actually just got done putting my neighbor in a nursing home. It was really sweet old lady and here that, you know, just just to dear member who's actually cheerleader on, Georgia's last national title team so. Oh my goodness. Oh, sad. Big college football fan, obviously, she was old, but I heard Mississippi Andy's call with Dan Mullen. I heard kinda how you felt about him. And I wanna ask you, it seems like Florida's got the everything porting pointing in the right direction. Developing quarterbacks. They seem to be recruiting a little bit better. Facilities are on the way my question to you is Florida continually recruits at tick behind a lot of the people on their schedule. Every year LSU in Georgia and gala Bama, when they make it to the title game, even Tennessee. They recruit behind Florida state, but that doesn't matter because of Willie Taggart's dumpster fire. But I guess my question to you is in law and need to make any changes staff changes to recruit, better or can you continually stay behind Georgia, and these rivals, but start to beat them? I'll hang up and listen to your grandmother. I think things are changing re literally, as we speak, it starts with the Scillies and Florida is in the process of upgrading everything in a dramatic way. I think that's from an aesthetic standpoint is very important. I think he has a really good staff. I just think he takes awhile to establish yourself, and, and Kirby is a different breed of recruiter. And don't forget, I mean, he recruited Alabama all those years. And he, he, he has the contacts and Mullah knows everyone from being a head coach for a number of years. But I think I think he did get off to a logic. Star. But but, but he made up for that late in the recruiting process, and I'll be very surprised if he doesn't continue to close that gap Florida. I believe has tremendous momentum going under him. Thank you for the call. Do appreciate it calling in. Baton Rouge is up next. Hey, colin. Hello, paul. It is. Thank you. Hey, how's it going fall? It is going great. Thank you. And good. So I just saw that SEC schools have opened on liquor sales and stadiums. What do you think that's gonna how how's that gonna fix football this year with college students in the hour making? We're making I in inside the minutia I it's, it's not. I mean, we're, you're not going to have an an ABC store in the in in tiger stadium though. They'll be outside beer, and wine is all that they will be selling. They'll be very circumspect and very very deliberate. But I don't think it's going to really change anything. If you go to if you go to the if you go to a game at tiger stadium you can find all the alcohol, you want outside in the parking lot. All this will do I'm not sure what it's going to do Franklin other than make the school, if you dollars create a few more, headaches and. Maybe cut down on some binge drinking outside because people know they can get it inside. But they also know you tell me Colin he'll be on lines as opposed to drinking at their seat. That's right. I think I think can be a positive thing. It'll be I mean, Doug, it'd be jerking. The minded wasn't the stadium seven pairs. No. I think you're always better, when you make it when you when, when it's when you when you make it legal. It seems to cut down a lot of the nefarious stuff. But I hope it goes, well, it's again I think if you go to if you go to a seven thirty game at tiger stadium. The odds on the odds of you having had a drink before you walk in that stadium or pretty good. And definitely. So what about this upcoming football season? Where are you think? Tigers, Elaine, I am sky high on LSU. I really am. I saw I was I was out on the beats the other morning really early. And I looked up, but it's seven thirty. And I thought a freight train was coming right at me. And it was that orange. You're on running. I mean this guy I tell you what I mean. I you get. I mean he he takes everything seriously. I, I really think LSU is going to have a huge year. That's awesome. You think I think there's be beaten them? Roll Todd criticize. I'm thinking about it. I mean come on I go ahead and say it right now I'm going to have to answer those Todd fans the rest of your call me the morning of the game. Okay. That way. We're not that way. When I drop the bomb on the Alabama fans won't be it won't it won't hurt as much. That sounds good ball. I'll give you a call. That thing. Go tigers. We'll take a short break still thirty minutes to go here on a Friday afternoon. You're listening to the Paul finebaum show podcast. Welcome back. So glad you're with us. John is in Mississippi on this Friday afternoon. Good afternoon. Johnny beat. It is going. Well, thank you. Well, I go to school at Mississippi State, so, you know, I'm just calling to see how you think state will be be this year. You know, we lost nNcholas Gerald and couple of big pieces on defense with the sweat, and Simmons. So I kinda wanna see how what you think. How many I'm, I'm not really just. Rowing over with, with, with energy on on, on, on a big number. We'll get a schedule and you try to find. Okay. Well, we're where are the easy wins? You know, the non conference schedule is not very difficult. So I think there you could rack up four wins there. But in the conference. Trying to remember you go to 'em. You go you go to Auburn. Are you gonna win? How are you gonna win toasty plays and say, here's the schedule, by the way, Lafayette's, other miss Kansas state? I mean, that'd be shocked if state loses any of those Kentucky at home. I think it's a swing game at Auburn. Tennessee, tricky LSU at home. That's always a big game a couple years ago that was a huge win at a and m at Arkansas, Alabama ole miss. I mean, I'm I mean I see something similar to what happened this year. What about you? Eka the new of Penn State transfer could kinda help us out. You know, I think a lot of state fans like me were kinda, maybe underwhelming hundred one from last year season. I think our expectations maybe too hot. But maybe this Thomas Stevens. You could. Yeah, we'll say that's the that's always the unknown like with LSU last year until in until borough got there. I don't think they had much, much to write home on. But so if he can, if he can, if he can be a difference maker than, you know, getting eight or nine wins or perhaps more as possible, if he doesn't make an impact, and I think we're going to see a repeat, thank you for the call. Great to hear from you. Chris is in Athens on the air. Go right ahead. Paul. This is Chris first time caller just, you know, obviously, I'm from Athens, Georgia, go dogs just quick quick rundown. We always look at rose colored glasses and next season. But you know what? I'm seeing a little we lost a lot of people at wide receiver and obviously gig from is, is kinda proven. He's he's the man at that position. But do you think that, that we're going to have any trouble replacing those receivers? I know we gotta really get crop coming in just wanted to know what the new often coordinator, and everything, just kind of your thoughts on. I think I think that's a lot to replace. But I'm gonna I'm gonna. Parrot where I've heard all week from not only Kirby smart, but from which Emerson on Mike Griffith people that cover that program. You short up front. I mean, the line if this isn't the best offense of line of ever seen, and I'm going to be shocked based on everything. I've been told I think it will be great. So you know you got a great running back. Do you have the same wide receivers? No. But I think you have good ones, and to me, it's about the defensive line, and, and whether Kirby smart can plug a few holes back there that defenses stout than I think, Georgia is, is, is going to be running for another trip to Atlanta. I'm not I'm not remotely concerned. All right. Well, I appreciate it. I think I'll make one more. I I I'm not willing to commit myself, but I think Georgia is possibly the most talented team in the. See. And, you know, that's another wonderful to hear for sure. You know that I think running back getting in the passing game going to be a big thing. You know, I really hope to see that. Sure, Kirby seem really upbeat on the changes. Any may. Now he made them. I think he his job now is to kind of temper down some expectations, you will hear a lot of what I just got through saying, because I've already heard talking to colleagues privately, I think you're going to hear a lot of people at least start to hint that they think the torch is being passed. I'm not ready to make that statement. I'm just trying to accurately and honestly answer your question. Well, I appreciate it, Paul. Thank you great here from him. But Georgia is going to be extraordinarily. Good. Clayton is up next in Texas. Hey clayton. Good afternoon. How're you doing? First time caller. Thank you. Great to hear from me. Well, I wanted to ask you, what do you think about eight EMS upcoming season? I know we have probably one of the hardest schedules in the nation. And do you think they'll regress or do better? Or I know you know, there's even I, I think, JIMBO is, is an elite coach. But the schedule is just brutal. Oh, absolutely. I just don't know. How you deal with the schedule. I mean, let's start with the top three teams in the country at Clemson. Alabama at home and that Georgia you got. I mean you have four top ten teams on the schedule three of them on the road. So you start right there. Can you win any of those four games with my question to you? I wanna say we were close to Clemson. You're not going to be caused this year. I don't think unless I probably not. Incident that'll do good when they're supposed to or not supposed to say them, and the opposite. Let me tell you why the schedule is brutal. I think of those four games your best shot of winning is against Alabama. So, and then can you win everything else Clem? I was going to say I was gonna ask you win. Do they win the games that they're supposed to like, like higher? I believe they I believe they can win the rest of the game. So if you win there, if you win the, the rest of the games, then it comes down to of, of those remain of those big for Clemson, Alabama, Georgia in LSU. You can you can make an argument on each one clemson's early. It's a transitional year of I'm not buying it. LSU to me is, is the ultimate revenge game now that you're trying to get the best shot is that LSU has had a has had a subpar season. And maybe by the end. They're not thinking clearly, but man I I'm struggling to find a win and those four. It's gonna be rough, but I'm hoping, okay? Well, listen, you should. But even if even an goes eight and four the program is still in great shape. So if you go eight and four and you win a bowl game you go nine and four. I would consider that a really good season. We're up against a break. We are coming back for about twenty more minutes on our final show of the week. We're back with more of your calls after this to listening to the Paul finebaum show podcast. Welcome back. Glad you're with us. What's finished strong? Bob is up next. Good afternoon. Bob. Hello, paul. Bob from fair hope Alabama. Right. Second goal and constant listener. I noted a one of your callers earlier was celebrating their fiftieth anniversary, which I'd like to congratulate them on and going up to Alaska, which is a great trip. I just like to. Point out and say something about our our life. First of all, I notice you, you from time to time support some book writers in the area. Yeah, I wife and I nine days from day. We'll celebrate are sixty second waiting diversity. Oh my and she and I met on the beach at go shores, Alabama in nineteen fifty six shoes, a great looking young lady in a bathing suit, and I was a rock and roll saxophone player from Memphis. Oh my goodness, into ole miss, and a year later, we were married and three years later, we were in the army to stave or twenty two years and later, twenty two years working on projects in the Middle East. She wrote a book about the whole sixty two years more or less, and we're having trouble getting bookstores to to give us a book signing thing we looked at square books up in Oxford, and they, they were. You know, really interested in we're looking at you for that. What, what? I don't you have that great store down in fair hope? Oh, yes. A great story great. We're going to go to page in pallet. Actually supposed to do a book signing there once and I couldn't do it. And they re disappointed me now I did. I did one that square which was moments where book is there a great place? One of my great buddies up there. Dr buddy chain, Brigadier or Major General buddy chains, sort of introduced me to the owner up there. And so far, I haven't had anything from them and they watch us at score books. They let me ask you this, Bob. So tell me what's the name of the book, first of all the name of the book is seeds of destruction. Okay. And it has a long secondary name. Okay. The story of the life and adventures of a military family as they travel the world, you know, that type of thing. So. So we had here part of this book, and what would you say? What is what is what has been the secret to this, sixty two year marriage? That's an amazing question. And it gets harder to answer every day. But if it was, I love. Love ever side type things I was a rock and roll saxophone player was abandoned ole miss named the down beats back in the fifties. And we traveled to the go shore, to go shores, one summer the summer of my freshman year and played about three weeks at a place called the canal loud. And I'm walking out on the beach one day, and I see this girl in a bathing suit and, and to just knocks me out and come to find out her dad owns the place there at edco shores. And so we struck up a conversation and something lead to something, and then she has been, I'll tell you the honest truth. She's been the best wife, you could ever imagine. And I call her in the book in my, my forward of the book the best army wife in ever, you know, and then when I finished the army, and went to the Middle East, she came with me, you know how many, how many ladies are going to go over the. Ocean, the Atlantic Ocean, once every three months, both ways after I'm spending twenty years, working in Saudi Arabia, Egypt. And listen. I will I do know those people that in Oxford I'll, I'll, I'll say something, and, and you keep at it, and congratulations on the book and the sixty two years of marriage. That is. That's quite that's quite an accomplishment. Well, thank you, Paul. I appreciate the effort. Thank you. Thank you. That is great. Secret of marriage is being a sex phone player in the band. I always thought they told me the piano, players got all the women. The guitar piano. You would you would you say piano over guitar and saxophone. I think well guitars. Yeah. Yeah, you're right, my next life. I'm going to be a Texaco employer in a rock and roll band. Aaron is up next. You know high. Oh, good afternoon air. Hey poem longtime listener first-time caller. I think you I just wanted to get your thoughts on Ohio state's chances this year of other return a lot on offense. I'm a little quarterback. And your thoughts on Ryan day? I like Ryan day, but I also. I think the, the key game is going to be against Michigan. And at this moment, slightly favoring, Michigan in Ann Arbor. Yeah, I was pretty favorable. And I just think we've got Michigan's number now for some reason you and I I'm Jim Harbaugh can't beat Ryan day in his first year then. He's never going to be a bit Ohio State. So I think there is going to be a lot of pressure on him. I think it's a very smooth transition. I think Ryan day is has got it together, based on people that know him, much better than I do which is pretty much. Everyone says, I don't know him. But I, I also think there's, there is a slight learning curve, though, being head coach and you never know where it's going to hit you. Right. But what are your thoughts on just in fields guy? That more than I am high on Justin fields people. Georgia told me that his his upside has potential was literally through the roof. We never really saw much of him there. I don't think the setup authencity was good for him. I think it's much better where he is now. Well, I, I hope so. So, hey go by the thank you. Check back with us. Good to hear from you. Let's check in with art in Louisville art, we don't have a lot of time. But go right ahead. All right. Start from upper in Louisville, Kentucky, I'm going to I'm going through a little jar mix. Do you know anything about the to transfer students that we got for the football team coming in the quarterback and the linebacker? And is there any word on black share? Has he made any decision? Or have you heard any anything on the ladder? I've heard pretty positive comments on the quarterback. Saw Mark stoops down in Kentucky exceed me down in Destin, and I will tell you this. He felt really good. He said he's a really good offseason. He feels really good about this. I, I do too. I, I think people are under under estimating and underrating the cats. I think they have chance to maybe not get exactly where they were last year but pretty close. Thanks for the call. We are unfortunately out of time just as we were starting to get on a roll here. We'll do the after show on the on the on the app. Thank you for listening to the Paul finebaum show podcast. The Paul finebaum show airs weekdays on the SEC network beginning at three eastern.

We had rig brag on today Hal Raines Rick of course a protege of how to great writers The South is ever produce Let's get back to the calls at eight five five to four two seven. Two eight five and Herald is up next. How's it going Paul Gerald Way too long? How are you around? Yeah I tell you. It's so hard to get through and I'm not entertaining collar but you know your interview. Howell Raines without was fantastic. I remember asking him that question sometime back in the nineteen nineties when he was at. Uab in Birmingham and his answer is basically the same About a you know about people in positions of leaders probably by coach Brian. People in positions of leadership need to take a stand and things like that. He's a moderate a little bit since then understanding Understanding sometimes but it wasn't quite as harsh is what he told he told me I have Wanted to ask them. That have read a Lot. Of what he's he's written about that era and he would certainly be one of the most compelling writers of that period time period as you know I think being Alabama Fan. I think you have to take what he says a lot. More Gravity than just somebody who was writing from a distance. Oh absolutely correct me if I'm wrong but you know on on K. Day just last month you were offense at that. You went on the air that day. Am I correct? Diet is just had surgery that week. Oh kinda standing but you talk about. Espn doesn't want you to talk a lot about About Politics Let me explain that briefly. Okay I I don't have any issue talking about issues that are important to this country and he raised one at the end. The thing that I don't like and I'm sure my company Dozen either. It's not so much the conversation. It's the reaction to the conversation. And you've lived in Alabama long enough to know what the reaction would be. Yeah you know absolutely. I know what the reaction would be That it doesn't take much to disturb a reaction but I'm I'm out your surgery. Went well and in fact it shows the doctor kept talking about Dr King Januar. Yeah I really hated to miss. That's as you know Harold. Probably my favorite day of the year here in the first one I've ever missed but My wife would not let me come to work that day. I always get talked to talk to you again. Paul thank you very much herald May Have Been One of the year. I'm in people like Herald called into the very first show ever did in Alabama. Which was called fussing with. Finebaum show was cancelled pretty quickly. Jim is up next in Texas. Hey Jim Paul and yes you are thank you for. Calling okay. Great that's Great. It's it's tough. You have been watching you for years and I'll confess to you. I don't watch every day but I watch you as often as well. Thank you bet on the. I WANNA make a couple of comments first of all. I think you have a great show. Yeah great diversity and I love the fact you bring in a very interesting outside speakers. It's so unfortunate. The the last speaker who is a great journalist obviously made a political comment toward the end. I I think that one of the good things about your show is it is. It is a great diversion from politics. Right and You know a lot of times. I'll watch Fox News and I said you know I can't take any more of this and I turn on Paul Finebaum and I my my guess is that your ratings went up during the impeachment. Here I don't know that yeah. I think they probably they probably did and I will tell you. Even you may know this Jim I I am. I am somewhat of the political. That's one of my hobbies is is is following politics. But it's now to the point and I. I was talking to a friend of mine earlier that it's it's so toxic I don't it doesn't matter what side you're on. It has become almost unbearable to watch. I would agree. Paul and I'm an old dog. I'm seventy three but I'm I'm sorry to see my country so this yeah. It's a real shame. I wish we were supposed to be on the same team I exactly. I watched the debate last night. And I I have seen food fights in Grammar school cafeteria that that were more under control than that. Let's not talk anymore. Just let me get. I'm throwing it Apple Pie one of my buddies and and and and I I didn't mean to go off in the politics but I did. No no no. That's okay. That's okay just stay away this stuff. 'cause you're a great diversion away from thank you. Well we will try to keep keeping a great show and you're doing a great job and I'll tell you what I know you're up you take random and UK grass. I really applaud you. Because you know you. You're you're pretty unbiased. You're you're you have your opinions which you should ask and you express them the time but you pretty much call on the way you see them and I applaud you for that. Let me get to the bottom layer. The reason I called. I lost my dear friend. His name is John Coal From Louisville Kentucky I live in San Antonio but I'm Fifth Generation Louisville Liam and Scottish roots and and a UK Grad. And John was a A partner mad at a international accounting firm and he passed away January twenty eighth we buried in February. One I'm so sorry to hear that. But Yeah but you know. It's part of the life cycle but Paula. Here's the interesting story though and I thought she would really find this interesting being a ut Grad with your journalism background. There's a guy named Cormac McCarthy and I'm pretty sure he graduated. Ut He did And a very famous author while he and my good friend John Cole who grew up in elections and played at Henry. Clay allstate got a football scholarship. Uk from Blanton Collier Played Freshman Balder. And then again. I'm Charlie Bradshaw came in from Alabama and sure wiped out half the team and my good friend. John's said you know what I think I wanna be a CPA rather than a football player who became. A WORLD-CLASS CPA. Having said that he knew tarmac and tarmac was writing a book called all the pretty horses which later became I think a pretty Pretty successful movie any said Johnny said I WANNA name. You is my lead character in this book. I WANNA call the lead character. John Cole and John said sure and he said I'll send you a book you know outside it You know I addition outside and all that and I think John Probably sold for two or three hundred bucks on Amazon but anyway so the so that that book became a movie all the pretty horses and Matt Damon Play John. So it was an interesting story about a guy from ut and guy UK kinda connected and of John. Cole was no longer with us. I don't know of Karnak is not. I think he is He also wrote no country for old men. Only I if I remember the story correctly His family moved to Knoxville. I think his father worked for TV. Hey could have that wrong. And that was the that's how he ended up at ut. But yeah when you're an aspiring writer on that campus you. You definitely knew knew his name extremely well. That's my story is a little bit off for. That's a great story party. I look forward to calling you back one day. Thank you talking about round ball and football and and I hate one and done but you know it's it's the system and you gotta play within the system. You have a great day thank you. I was operated on January fifth the pretty severe shoulder surgery so I hope you heal up well and thank you and and God bless you. Well thank you I hear sorry about your friend get well. I was the next day and I'm doing great. You really wouldn't have known that That I had any issues at all. Thank you so much for the call. That was really fun. Brandon is in Fair Hope Alabama. Something tells me this will be in response to HAL range. You're very correct. Mrs Finebaum. Great W on thank you longtime first-time excellent we'll we'll it's all yours Yeah I was born and raised fair hope and I believe that guy was an author you had on correct well as a former He's using all five books. He's a former New York Times editor. Okay well he's had his head in the books a little bit too much There's way more Alabama fans here fair than not unless you were abandoned. That's not really what he said. He said you you you tend to see you see a lot more. Lsu signs You you see a lot more Lsu OF ENTHUSIASM. And I think the message of what? How said wasn't that per capita? There aren't any more Alabama fans. It's just that you don't hear from them right now. Yeah well there's still people flying Alabama flags on cars and stuff There's been a lot more. Lsu Fans Showing Support Sense National Championship That's without a doubt well. I I think how integrate deal and and you tell me I mean I think there's a little bit of a of a shock to the system right now among Alabama fans because for so long under Sabin. Everything came easy and now there are questions. We'll be bad. We had a good workplaces sheriff brands to that. That's exactly what I expected you to say. And I think that's why House said what he did as well. We will take a break more to come more of your phone calls at eight five five two four to seven to eight five. We'll talk about The NFL controversy. And the transfer rule. Coming up with Alan blinder more of that after to listening to the Paul Finebaum show podcast. We welcome you back in all day long. There has been a lot of speculation that Alabama could be losing Steve Sarkisian as offensive coordinator. There's breaking news on that subject. Sarkisian has withdrawn his name from the Colorado head coaching search according to our next guest he is Chris Lowe from ESPN. Who has just nailed this down Chris Great Avalon? Thank you so very much I know you're out and about. You may not be able to hear this as well but tell us what what you know. Thirteen was was right through the middle. This deal and there were there. Were people that will several guys I think. Still in NYC star hit it burns at the top guy bet with Colorado officials on Wednesday. Came back. Talk with Nick. Saving Alabama officials decided it probably best friend of State Alabama now. He's you know he's only been there one years office coordinator but They're not secure Alabama. Take you'll see him of course top assistants now making over two million dollars a year. I don't think it's been set but I would be surprised if you don't see go to two more next year though. See It's good for Nick Sabin because when you look at all the turnovers Helen his staff especially Dad's job and you'll see. This is the worst time in the world has to be replaced. Those are not good news for Nick. Sabin and Alabama football. Chris you know that Steph really well and Sarkissian has had to overcome a great deal. So I'm interested in your view of turning this job down. That's not easy when it is a head. Coaching job it is in the PAC twelve but You measure that versus working for Nick. Sabin explained to us. So what do you think went into this decision? You look look at the college yeah. There's not that easy job excuses. They had the last decade Qatar etiquette years. But it's been a very difficult job. I think this is Copley Steve. Looking at it saying it's not the worst thing in the world to continue to work for Nick. Saving and has that on your resume to grow. With a head coach. And he coaches to different places obviously. Us in Washington and there's always GONNA BE MOVEMENT. There's always job opening. They're going to be on offense this year. They got great players back number thirteen tonight. It'll be pulled the trigger. But they're still going to be pretty good. I think he's looking at it. Like you know what why not be selective and see what comes open next year instead of jumping is something right now and it just said something. That's so interesting. Because we all watch coaches make bad choices and you really can't recover from a bad choice but you can Sit back and I'm not ready to speculate on next year but What do you think Sarkissian taught about? Secondly and maybe more important. Just talk about Sargsian's recovery. Because he he was in a bad place for years ago. Teams like That's all behind him. He was a little bit and he. He's done great you know he's still like that he's in a good place only coating wise but personally and with the recovering from is us at. Usc got got him fired confidence working under. I like Nick. Sabin hopes that is so structured In being a part of that environment you know he said to me. It's it's not often any more or less. You see coaches especially guys recorders. Maybe it's different with the because he's been head coach before the baby. Sit BACK TO BILL. That was selected but still guys typically when they get a shot at a power five head. Coaching job is hard to say. Thanks thanks But when you've been head coach you you've done it at places like Washington. Usc gone to some of the things. Steve has you know. Maybe it is selective especially when you're working at a place like Alabama and I think that With what they're GONNA PAY. Alabama he'll probably be able to To have as long as I don't think he'll be doing is just a bit. You're right Chris. Whoa another Decision the other day Charlie strong Joining that staff as an analyst we you seen analysts come and go at Alabama and you. You understand what? That room does for a coach Help US BETTER. Understand Charlie Strong Alabama. Well you look. If you guys Paul you look at the guys who come through there as analysts or is he not had good stint head coaches fields into combat through Alabama and gone to other places. Mike lost nearly different now back in the SEC. It all and I know that Charlie hats American likely till about the coordinator job at Mississippi state land talked to him about this. Ask because it's certainly going to Florida and a very similar role. Dan Mullen hamlets but to have a chance to go work under NICK. Sabin Lane said it. Best Listen Pictorial. Style is completely different. Index go work for even learn. His style coaches see that and getting that seems to do that on their resume Kelly is a terrific defensive odd. I'll tell you where you'll be benefits and exciting and this is nick associated his own skin. He doesn't mind bringing guys they've been head coach and tap in. Hey you had this situation with this player or this recruit or this previously in your head coach. What if do how did you handle it? You Charlie has been there we've been to Texas. He's been. He's been a south for Florida as defensive coordinator they wanted couple of national championships. You'll be active presence in that program in the locker room. He's respect late to I need just so in a way for trailers where winter football one more thing Chris before you go and again if you're just joining us Chris reporting shower. That Steve Star Qizheng has said no to Colorado and staying at Alabama. But I wanted to get your thoughts on the new proposal with the working group from the about the one time transfer because in speaking of Nick Sabin. He's been pretty outspoken on that subject to settle coaches recently about that your victory and one of them and as you might imagine clean is all of that. But here's the thing that I think was probably all busy a. It's coming in some form or fashion. There's going to be the ability for players to transfer without having Saudi gear with a one time. Transfer and yeah the Knicks as of the old. And maybe other coaches coach at some of the bigger schools may not like it. But you know what the mission with. Paul is at the end of the day. It's going to help probably Ohio state and Alabama and Oklahoma and Clemson because you don't think they have the resources to set up their own sense of bait quote unquote player Personnel Department and look at players at other schools. You don't think those players I don't want to come if a kid's afresh numerous sophomore at a a lower level where maybe a school it's not doing well and other concerts that they're not going to want to come to an Alabama or Ohio state or Oklahoma Clinton employ. You get a chance to win a championship. The baby health status of the drafts drafty down the road. Absolutely so it works both ways. But it's coming. I think he's guys like say Dabbled Swing and Ryan Day in Ohio State. Who Haven't gone right now. They understand that and and I could probably we know one thing about nick saving. Yeah he may grumble him or not like something. You know how to adapt guaranteed to this great stuff and Chris before you go Last week we were together in Knoxville. You were nice enough to come over and introduced me to a group and I've been introduced by people all over the country but that was easily my favorite introduction. You were you were fantastic. Great to see you too ringtone. Austere in your phone didn't ring to rocky top rated Alabama. Yeah Chris gave me a hard time about that. And I address Chris in front of the group about who the true Sabin believer was in that in that setting. Hey Chris from bad fantastic senior KNOXVILLE. And thanks for the time again. Chris Lowe Breaking Big Story Alabama fans were wagging their tongues about this one. What would happen if Artesian left for Colorado Colorado now looking at some really good choices including Bret Bielema? We'll take a break. You're listening to the Paul Finebaum. Show podcast. Okay we're back. It's been about a week in two days. Three days since Mister Emirate went to Washington trying to solve this name image and likeness Situation since then more news from the NC Double A. on on the transfer Pora rural which we talked to Chris about. But we WANNA talk to Alan. Blinder now covers the world of college athletics for The New York Times. He was in Washington last week Allen. Thank you so much for joining us. We appreciate anyone at the New York. Times making room for little Great to be with you. Thank you very much Let's go back a couple of days. you were there. You saw it all unfold. Just describe the scene here. Here's mark numbered. Who who's likes to control the room and here he is Being questioned by By US senators had been there before the the NCWA has been the subject of scrutiny on Capitol Hill in the past. But you know this was a time when there's there's a sense of blood in the water Among legislators California moved last year on the whole idea of main image and likeness. We're seeing more and more states around the country You know pursuing dislocation considering legislation. That would let student. Athletes cut endorsement deal higher agents and the like so when Emmerick walked into that room in Washington. He was facing You know a panelist senators who who heard a lot about these issues The last couple has been in the national spotlight a whole lot lately. Now I've been to the Senate but I've never covered the senate and I found some of the comments from the from the legislators interesting maybe With you and some of your colleagues in mind but by some of the comments that they brought up they seem more interested in this hearing than your average run of the mill situation Describe what you saw. And maybe explain to us what it means if anything that subcommittee hearing so frankly. I wondered how many of them were going to show up for the hearing Few days after impeachment trial ended. And I remember sending a note to my editor before the hearing that I think there are six people already in here So there was there was a mint interest. There was bipartisan interest And you had number two Senate Republican in the room for a while asking questions. You had senators really all over the map. You had the Montana show apart from Connecticut up. There was deep. Bipartisan across the country. Interest in this topic And frankly More than I would have expected at a Senate subcommittee hearing on a Tuesday Allen. This is pretty big stuff when when the NCAA president is is in front of Congress but what was the in game for Mark Emirate you know imminent stopped just a little bit short last week of saying we need Congress to To come in fix this fourth what he did tell Congress was that he may need support from them. Eventually because there's a lot of talk Around College Sports Right now. That if they keep keep pursuing these bills one after the other on their own then the next thing. You know You'RE GONNA have such a patchwork of rules and procedures that you've got colleges on different playing field. Basically so Imbert was in Washington to essentially signal that The NCWA may need some federal backing to solve a problem as they see it It could come in terms of national of what players can be paid for their for use of Miss it could come in the form of some federal antitrust Parisian's and exemptions and such. So there's a they're the. Ncwa did not come with specific. Ask At least publicly last week but there are a lot of others a lot of other people in Washington scrutinizing it looking to see what the ones I mean the the number two Republican in the Senate flat out told me he's waiting to see what the NC Double A.'s. Recommendation look like before he moves forward with whether there should be the action by Congress. Alan blinder with US The New York Times Allen. I know that They they issued paper in October. But what's interesting to may not have any correlation but the other day this working group move rather quickly on the transfer policy and it looks like that could come to be in the next two or three months. Is there anything to read into the speed on that and and and in relation to where we are on the NFL? Well I mean it's hard to say to be quite honest with you. I mean we're hearing over and over again L. Stuff. That's probably going to be next January. Were expecting some recommendations from one of the many working groups that looking at this for the NCAA ideas forward starting in April in the next couple of convention scheduled for next January Clinton in DC. So you know there's I mean. Is there a possibility that something could be worked out sooner than next January? Sure but what we keep hearing from being about the time line for this is the you know. The they contend their membership as ation got about eleven hundred schools Scattered around the country. They all get voice they all get to vote and it takes a long time to to sort through eldest at the moment. We're not even expecting to see any ideas from the NCWA. Until sometime in April Allen finally the reporting on this Throughout the country what do you? What do you sense when you talk to all the parties involved whether it's the top shelf administrators the athletes themselves? What are you hearing on that as well as the legislators from around the country in in various states we keep hearing from people that they that. There's going to be some kind of change coming. The question is how out of the Pwa go and will that satisfy all these lawmakers. I mean last year when California pursued this legislation You know they. They were aggressively courted and lobbied not to pass it The NC double a few letters over the California saying we don't think you should pass it and they left open the possibility of a court challenge then. California passed anyway and that essentially was a stick of dynamite for a lot of other legislatures talking about this stuff so when I was at the convention in California last month over and over again from presidents. Adp's I kept hearing some changes going to have to come. The question is what does it actually look like in reality and We hear from legislators around the country that they're fed up with the way they don't entirely trust the NC double way to get this done. And frankly I think there's a lot riding on what these recommendations look like to see whether whether they'll be able to slow the slow the train down all Alan blinder covers college sports for the New York Times on the aisle situation. Alan Great Avenue on. Thank you very much greg. People Alan blinder outstanding reporter joining us as we continue More of your phone calls here at eight five. Two four to seven to eight thousand. Been a busy show already. We have a long way to go. We hope you'll join us after listening to the Paul Finebaum show podcast. Welcome back. We're glad you're here. And you can still give us a call at eight five five two four to seven to a lot of reaction a lot of things to talk about the story of the last hour. Sarkissian staying at Alabama Turning Down To head coaching position at Colorado. Let's check in next with Tony. Who's up next in Texas? Tony from Texas Pat Paul. If when they are the politicians coming into college football. That won't be the biggest mistake amber because the only thing politicians now wants to do in to break things so an MBA. A big mistake. Well here's the problem is they can't do it without. Congress can't wines that well because The NCW is facing an issue where there are countless states who are doing their own legislation and if there is not a uniform legislation it will be a pure insanity in college athletics. Well you interview Herschel Walker Sometime Back and he I think he summed up what is going to happen if they Amer start paying college. Athletes I think senator from you. You didn't with Carshield Walker. Y'All should replant because young children. He hit gotree see enough. Don't you think an individual athlete has has a right to make something off of his name and likeness? Look I've played I played college. Football and Texans. Am Back in the seventies. Okay? And you know what made me down? Educate people on just how much scholarship is today because if they mess up college football it affects more than his college football. It will affect every sport at college. Football supports with the money they bring in the buildings the university and everything so they best be careful once. They're doing okay. I will make sure that the people in charge no that Latest up next in Alabama Finebaum. Yes The comment you made about saving Living Stupid That I think was a little harsh That that that that statement I don't I don't see how one play and makes a mighty look stupid. Well listen I think I think coming from well. I I think there's a difference between someone is stupid and just saying Gus Malzahn made saving. Look stupid on that play I think that's self explanatory. Well he was clearly. Ill ill ill prepared for it. His reaction afterwards was churlish. Well what what we saw and I watched The Games of the Iron Bowl in several other games with toward the end of the season with a group of friends and what we saw there in Sabin was a tired old man He didn't seem to have the buyer on the sideline that he usually had. In the past. You know what I think. I think what I said was more of a compliment than what you said. Well yes it might be. Do you really believe That saving is a tired old man. Well he looked he didn't know I agree with you and I think maybe you're right I think I think I overshot the runway. A little bit but I was trying to make a point that Gus Malzahn this former high school coach Outfox The King of college football. That probably would have been a better statement but I wouldn't But but calling someone at the age of sixty eight a tired old man after he had been schooled in the National Championship by twenty eight and has just lost a chance to return to the playoffs for the first time. Ever in the new in the College football era playoff era That's pretty harsh to well. It may be it may be May Be true but but it's harsh sweaty did well. Here's what we needed to wonder whether he's in good. Health can't really whether Ah for someone who's just had a bout with Illness I'm certainly no one to be an expert. I I thought I was in good health to the issue I think is I think he is in good health. That would be my interpretation. He you know he had hip surgery. He recovered very quickly. Maybe overdid the I. I don't think he had to be back at work. Two days later Having had surgery not nearly as serious ship surgery I tried to listen to what they told me and About listening I got back to work pretty quickly. I four or five days but I didn't need I. I was not trying to prove anything. I just I was I was well. They weren't great And in his case I don't know how old you are but I know a lot of people that have coach coach into their sixties and seventies and with each year becomes more difficult eighty four. Okay well you you would. You would be You would understand it well. I can spot a tired old man when I see one. That's for Damn shoe clear. I I'm withdraw my statement. And just let us. Your comments are far more Sapient in mind okay. All right okay. We'll call it a draw. Okay well thank you very much. Appreciate all right. Okay I want to think of. Here's an eighty four year old man which is up there but I liked his style and he was criticizing me for criticizing. Sabin for being out coach at the end of the game by Gus Malzahn and I said something which I made a point. Maybe it was a little personal. I thought he was going to berate me for calling. Sabin that and I think he he went one further. If you're saving why wouldn't you rather say you were out coached by Gus Malzahn? You were made to look silly or stupid or or just out coach. Wouldn't you rather have that than for someone to call you a tired old man? I can't think of much worse to call a sixty year. Sixty eight year old coach where ages already an issue. I think that's a tough comment. Get some reaction to that from you and everyone else after this.
MTTA 78: D.P. Lyle
"You're listening to meet the fellow author the podcast interview writers of mysteries, thrillers and suspense books. I your host Alan Peterson. And this episode number seventy eight in this episode of the podcast gonna be meeting DP Lyle who is a bestselling and award winning author of both fiction and nonfiction books, including the Samantha Cody dub Walker and Jake Langley thriller series as well as the Royal paints hit TV show media tie in novels. He is the creator and host of his very podcast series called criminal mischief, the art and science of crime fiction to how they recommend for writers. He co hosted along with Jan Brooke the crime and science radio on suspense radio and Doug has worked with many, novelist. And with brighter of television shows such as line at Miami diagnosis, murder monk judging Amy p liars and whole bunch of others and for the past forty years. He has practice cardiology in Orange County, California and. His done fiction books is how I first came to notice a DP Lyle. He wrote the forensic and fiction books, which are absolutely fantastic as well as the forensic for dummies book, whichever leave I'll his holiday books for writers of mystery suspense should be a must have should be on your on your shelf. I refer to them all the time. And so it's those both how I find out about the DP Lyle. And then I realized that he was also wrote his own thrillers and started reading a couple of those and really enjoyed them and said, I really want to have him on this podcast siree stout. And I'm very excited that he said, yes. So here's my interview with DP Lyle. Hey, everybody, this is Alan with meet the filler author and for this episode. I have the vile than award winning and bestselling author of fiction and fiction book. The how are you? How you doing? Thank you for being on the podcast loving your. So a little bit about your background such a amazing background from being a doctor the writer. He's so slowed about that. Like there's cardiology out here in Orange County for over forty years. Now, I grew up in Alabama. I went to the university of Alabama roll tide. I went to medical school and internship there in Birmingham, and then went off to Houston and did my residency fellowship at Texas heart, and then I've been out in California since then practicing, and you know, I grew up in the south so everybody style can tell the story that that's part of the culture, they won't feed you if you don't always knew I could tell the story, but I wasn't struck and right one so about that, I don't know twenty five years ago, or so I took some classes here at university of California Irvine, which has a great writing school. I come from night classes and join the couple of writing groups and just started writing, and I found out that writing a story and telling the story to entirely different animals telling stories easy writing a story as hard. And you know, even now God, I have what is eighteen th nineteenth nineteenth and twentieth. Book coming out this year out. I can't remember, and it it doesn't get easier. I would my first book. This is like I got this down. Now in every every every new book it's like starting over from the beginning. So you started to write that you start right away with the mysteries and thrillers with your fan of John actually, I wrote a book seventy two and a half years the first book, and it was fabulous. It was just wonderful. It was a hundred and thirty eight thousand words of wonderfulness. And so. I set it off to my agent Kimberly Cameron. She wasn't major then, but she's up in your neck of the woods and timber on area. Kimberly has been my agent for over two decades. Now. I love her to death. She's great. But this is before we had a business relationship, but we have met at a writers conference. And I said, I'm working on something. She said it was ended. So I sent it. And she called me a week later. She said, quote, there's a story in here somewhere. I just can't find it. And she said there's a lot of great stuff here if you rewrite it I'll read it again. Now, you never hear that from agents ever. So I did I really got down one hundred twenty thousand words sending back to it. She said, no, it's not it's not ready. So long story short. She rejected a couple of other novels, and then and then we publish nonfiction and ten years go by and I re wrote this book and story that I could not get out of my head twenty seven times changed locations. Four times. I changed titles. Four times. I even changed protagonist. The only thing that stayed the same basic story of the bad guy. So ten years later down about eighty five thousand words, and will I had learned some stuff about storytelling on the page like Kimberly? And I said you remember that book from ten years ago? She said oh God. Yes. And I said, well, this ready, and she said really so I sent it to her. And she goes you said, yes, ready and that became my first Walker book, call stress fracture. So, you know. Ten years twenty seven we rights, you know, overnight success. I read that restaurants factor. I I found you through your fish and stuff and then got thrillers. I read I read that book. And that was it's an awesome book that amazing thing in the backstory of of I can be. That was it. And so now, you're your latest book that you're reading this other Jake Langley a thriller series. Yeah. Come on every reading and listening. So a different just like a little bit more with a comedic pack thriller. He something about that. It is. And it's interesting writing the Royal pains books, which are kind of simple, you know, simple little stories based on the TV series. And and I remember I was reluctant to do those. But then I finally did and that that had some good and bad ugly with it with Hollywood. But at the end of the day, when I started writing those stories, I said, well, you know, this is a lot less serious than writing a real thriller or you have to keep a lot of balls and subplots a lot of science and a lot of stuff in the air, you know, about dub Walker for his thrillers and stuff there's just a lot of stuff going on that you've got to keep together. Well, these books they're just a little stories we'll yards and so I wrote them in. I wrote them without outlining I just started writing. And just you know. Follow hanging evident, there'd be an all those people through through all through all the stories in the stories just unfolded. Well when I started the Jake Longley series. I the first book these six, I had exactly ones seen in mind. That's it. And I said, let's just see where this goes. And I started writing and it just flew, and it's lighter. It's not as tech technical, you know, it's not procedural. It's just funny stuff happening along the way and old by the way, people are getting than we gotta figure out what that's all about. So it's a lot more like call hyacinth or Tim Mullany or eleven at there, there's murder mysteries their crime stories, but they're a little less serious and a lot more fun. So I kinda like that. So I don't outline anymore. I just start writing. Writers start not like passing. And then they go defend going the other way. So I'm assuming the other books that were a lot more were like you had been outlined before. Yeah. I mean, you know, they're they're when you have more technical stuff and more police procedure and more keeping all the clues in the red herrings and all the stuff together, you have to be a little more careful you have to plot things a little tighter. When you're writing comedic type stuff, you know, happenstance and serendipity can enter the story at any moment. And and it's it's it's like a it's like a confederacy of clowns rather than, you know, a bunch of hard boiled cops, and it's a whole different flavor. And I really enjoy I really enjoy writing that way. I find it to be a lot of fun. Now, I use a program called Scrivner to right? And then. Boy, anybody who doesn't is insane. Because it allows you to kinda keep a running outline sorta. While you're writing allows you to move around in the writing they're very very easily. You can jump from seeing the seeing the scene, you know, you're you're you're in chapter fifty seen fifty and something happened back in seeing twelve scrolling has got you just click on sing twelve in there. It is. And you have your little titles for each scene. So you kinda know who's where it just makes writing so much easier. Yeah. Yeah. And so it doesn't it's not one of those programs that plots for you and all that stuff and all those guys are out there. I've looked at a lot of those 'cause they're kinda fun. This is basically just a word processing program with around of bells and whistles. News. Well, dragons route features of it too. Never would have come in handy. Twenty seven rewrites that you did the. And the research files, I mean were dragged photos in web pages and everything into the program. And it's right there as you need all the time is how many how many books do you have on the dick Langley series? So far. The third one is coming out. In may the first one was the six the second one was a list, set New Orleans. The third one is sunshine state will set in Florida. And it's it's really funny it maybe the best of the three and then I'm working actually this morning. What I've written twelve hundred twenty words all ready this morning on the next one which is called rig, and it's going to take place in the town of fair hope Alabama and fair hope is just it's kind of like the Carmel of the Gulf. It is an artsy towns. Got a great bookstore there. Great restaurants and bars right on the Gulf facing west great sunsets. And it's a pretty high dollar neighborhood. And it's very nice. I'm certain story there which is just up the road from where Jason and crew live in Gulf shores, Alabama. So all these are centered around the Gulf Coast. Are you originally from Alabama students like go home? Stories. Walker stores were sitting on my hometown. So. Yeah. I remember that in the book. Yeah. And so so yeah. So sunshine state that's coming out on may twenty first biting tweeting. And and I believe is available for listeners. It is. Yeah. So there's probably. That you know, I really liked to cover. It really stood out with his colors in the punch, even the blood dripping. They're fantastic. Yeah. No with. With your not fiction. How did that come about? Because people are familiar male, you forensic books. I mean, like the questions I'm looking at the book here more forensic and fiction, which I always have a desk. Can then be obtained from a half eaten bagel? I mean. Questions that come about actually interesting, the more forensics and fiction was published that medallion that has now gone out of business. They also publish to might does books would just in the last couple of weeks. I got the rights for all those books back by the court the bankruptcy court. So now, we're going to be republishing. Those were not sure Kimberly, and I've been talking about we're not sure exactly when we're and how we're going to do that yet. But we're going to republish those three books, but particularly the question answer book, basically, many years ago, Jan Berg who radio show with for three and a half years, dear friend, Jan was the president of the southern California chapter of Mr. writers of America, and the newsletter was kinda thin and she wanted to bump it up. So she asked me would you got an article for something something on for instance, or medicine, whatever. And I said sure because this time I was answering questions for writers. But they call me and screenwriters and coming ask me questions. Forensic science or medical issues. And so I wrote one called timely death, which is kind of an overview of how the Karner determines time of death. And it was a huge success. Everybody loved is that we won't more this kind of stuff. So we started a column called the doctors in and it was a question answer thing. Well that expanded it went on and on and on and that ended up being published and several other newsletters around the national NWEA letter, suspense magazine, different places. Not list Inc. Their newsletter. And so long story short. I ended up with thousands and thousands of questions from writers. So I put them all together in first murder and mayhem and then second, friends and fiction and third more frenzies and fiction and each book has about one hundred seventy hundred and eighty questions best ones I received up to that time from writers. And it was they would say, I got this scenario, you know. So how does this work? What's going to happen? What's the right way to do this? What's it gonna look like does this make sense that kind? Thing. So I would offer them the science of behind what's going on here. And explain it to them in plain English. And then tell them how to use that and their story. And then sometimes even make suggestions, why don't you think about this? So those three have just been I think every crime writer should read them not only because I think they'll learn a lot. But I think they inspire, but I hear all the time. But you know, I really got some great story ideas from this. And so, you know, you read these questions from other writers, and you say, oh, that's curious. You know, I'm thinking about this. And that would work in my story this way, it wouldn't be the same. But it would at least sparked that what if that we all live with? Yes. Righty black blockers because you know, if you're kind of stuck on something or, you know, just the funding for your books and through your questions in the starts sparking your imagination. It gets you right back into the excited to write again. So. There are a lot of fun. And and some of these pressures that come up, and you had a question that's gonna like. Even the surprise you or or maybe a little bit. Oh, sure. Certified and some of them you can tell that they're talking about real life stuff. And I don't answer. Those guys say, you know, this this has to be in the context story. I don't deal with real crime. I mean, I'm not qualified to and it would be stupid to do that. But if it's in the context of story sure everything's spare game. I remember way back charleen Harris was working on. I think the fourth sickie Stackhouse book, and and and we talked about vampire blood and she wanted some. And this was back at the beginning of the whole vampire. We're wolfe's. That's kind of dwindling now, and we're gonna design these I guess, but Charlene obviously was huge and with true blood the TV series, which huge and that whole genre and actually launching it. And she's such a great writer in great storyteller. But we talked about that. And then, of course, after that, I got maybe a hundred questions over the next three or four years on vampires. And where will and things like that, you know. And and that's okay. I mean, it's obviously sci-fi fantasy stuff, but it's still has to conform to certain basic prints. And so you try to work through that. And how you can make this unbelievable story believable. And how do you make it sound real? I mean, if you think about the Star Wars, really, but we bought into hook line, and sinker that we accepted the entire universe that entire. A world that entire war that was going on all those characters accepted all of that. Because it remained true. Even though it violates just about every scientific principle. You know, spaceships don't make noise and space because there's not enough molecules, and they can't Bank in turn like aircraft's Bill because there's not enough molecules to do that against they kind of have to move in square. Swear line between care didn't care about all that stuff. 'cause it was a great story and we brought into the world. And so same thing if you buy into the world doesn't matter how landed shit is it'll work. Vampires coming out of the content, and the synthetic blood is very. She's fabulous. She's just a great person. And a great writer view influences as as a writer, some of your favorite authors. Too many many many many, you know, Michael penalty, teach Everson Parker of craze. But there's to the stand head and shoulders above everybody else that James Lee, Burke and Elmore Leonard James, Lee Burke because his writing is just so perfect his sentences. His paragraphs is imagery is dialogue is characters are sometimes they take your breath away when you're reading and you stop and say, oh my God. And you reread it. And you say, you know, I know all those words, I cannot put them together. This you know, because he is just fabulous literary, greedy fiction and then Elmore Leonard he's known as you know, the guru of dialogue because he is not allowed. It's not dialogue, and you can hear the people talking. And if you haven't read more Leonard you must but more so than that. I think he is a university level course in how to plot. Until a story his famous adage, it's actually not one of his ten rules. But it's probably his most famous. It is actually the number ten real Li leave out the parks people skip. And and other is if it sounds like writing rewrite, but he does that. And he manages to move you through a story create a scene create a character, create the dialogue create the action in do. It also effortlessly and so efficiently that every single thriller writer can learn a massive amount just by reading his stuff over and over again. You know, I read some of his books two three times, I've probably read virtually everything he's written. You know, he started as a western writer. He wrote Hombre in three ten to Yuma and stuff like that. And after he did forty or fifty western books. He turned to crime in Detroit and Florida and had a whole nother career. Those books are just wonderful Get Shorty and goal. Because Jackie Brown and maximum, Bob and be cool, and they're just fabulous stories and everyone should read them. So those two guys probably had the greatest influence on me. These my read are you too busy now with everyone. I'm reading an old Elmore. Leonard vote right now calls something or other city. I forget that's probably when you read on the kindle. I read on my ipad with again lathi. You can never remember the titles of books. That's funny. I can just flip over to the cover like the. Yeah. Book you see it every time you pick it up. He read or not so much especially the to read files keeps getting bigger the kids. So we need to download stuff. So when your medical back on now have any of those any real life experiences ever found their way to one of your stories. Oh, sure. And. Yeah. Mo- not only, especially if things I've read about, and, you know, heard about and see on TV and movies and a true crime stories and all that stuff all filter in there. Actually, there was a a character in a stress factor. But Dr Wendell Volwick was was the character. And he's the guy that that enhance the photos for dub and teeth. Tommy. So they get an image of the killer and the old rustler skin, and the wrestler skin was the hotel and hustle when I was growing up. It's now a a retirement community, high rise condo type things, but the Russel Erskine hotel was fabulous. It was. We're all big dance for held in the ballroom there and all that. So as part of my child. Hood. So I sent the story there. And so they they get a little security video this guy they needed enhanced. So they take it out the window relic at NASA, which is right there in Huntsville, the Marshall space lights were von Braun and all his people built all the rockets. The and I grew up with that. You know, I thought everybody on the space program in their backyard. But the guy that actually did this guy named Dr David Hathaway, David's just a great guy. And I went out and spend some time with him there. And he explained how he invented he and his co worker invented the visor system video image, stabilization and registries. So when you see picture of someone, and they enhanced it and get the license plate number or anything this case, they got a tattoo off a guy's arm that affected this little girl, and they take these grainy, videos and digitally enhanced them, that's what he invented. Now. He is the director of the solar imaging program. And so when the bomb. Went off at the Atlanta Olympics. They had a thirteen second little video and all it was was just a dark shadow outline of something against a a park bench where the explosion took place and they had run the news crew awaiting. You're not supposed to be over here, then run them away. So they got thirteen seconds of imagery before they got booted. The FBI brought that down the Davidson, can you do anything this? I don't know. So they started working with spin off his they ended up with an image that showed the bomb show, the wires showed everything and it basically invented the visor system. So I use that in in that story in that book. It actually David sick knowledged in the front, and that's any copy, and he was thrilled to be in the book. But anyway, so yeah. So, you know, you research lead you in a lot of circles and just the people you run into all those things inform. The stories you're telling. What's your ready passes? Then you start using research, and he starts to to write your your books. You know, I fixing nonfiction that tell people they're exactly the same only different. For non-fiction. You gotta do all the research, and you gotta put all the research together. And you know, you may do a little bit later as you run across other stuff. It's basically you have to do all the research and organize it and put it in some palatable form, and understandable, and then start writing, and you might draw your fiction techniques into that writing. But you have to get the information organized I in fiction, you get the characters and the setting and the plot hammered out, and you do the research is you go along if you need to know, what a building looks like a you need to know, this town has a Starbucks or not course every place does if you need to know what something looks like then you go look for it. But other than that the story comes out of your head. And so you only have to look for things that you need to go look. And if you do too much research before you start the story, unless it's about some aspect of that story that you need to know more about. You'll end up spending all your time on the computer looking at pretty pictures who articles and pretty soon, you know, two three weeks ago by just haven't written the word just I writing and then do the research and other exactly the same only different. Yeah. Because. Yeah. With the with the internet. I you start out really doing some research. And the next thing, you know, you waste a couple hours watching cat videos. There. Wonderful though, like you were saying, you know, if I'm writing a story, you wanna you wanna know, there's a Starbucks in that corner or something boom, you could just go to map, so whatever. Sure. Sure. Absolutely, absolutely. The the old masters typewriters how how they had to do their research. Oh my God. You know, when I started trying to somebody. It was basically on a typewriter because you know, the computers were just starting to come out there. I mean it hadn't been that long ago. Desktop computers. Have not been around long. Fresh college. Like, yeah, we had to go to the computer lab to Peter out. Everyone had one of the norm. Yeah. Oh, apple two E or something. Like this. And had like a megabyte of memory. You know thing. The word processing program and calculator. And that was it wasn't anything else. Yeah. Have more computer power than the than the computers? Commuting capacity then entire entire net network at NASA when we landed on the moon. Armstrong turning the computer often freaked, everybody out. The data overriding the computers capacity and alarms kept going off. And they were knowing him as he's standing there in the limb. Trying to fly this space for out in an environment. No man at ever been to and he just reached up and turn the computer off. Houston went crazy when insane. And he said, I don't have time to talk right now. Landed you know. That's amazing. That's why we're not. What's your when you you start writing? Do you? You mentioned before they you year the writing this morning. Do you have a set word count goals that you set for yourself? No, no that time I refuse. You know, I've got a day job. And and I just I love writing I do it. Because I want to I refuse to let this be a job. I've always said I I do not want another job. I did not want this to be a job. That's why the few times I've had deadlines. I didn't like it. And. The reason is yeah, I'm that annoying guy that you know, in high school you had to do a term paper, and it was doing three months. Mine was done in three weeks because it is it it's not because I'm more dedicated or smarter or any of that and anybody else he's just I don't like trouble on the horizon. If there's an issue, that's gotta be resolved. Let's just go resolve it, and then it's not an issue anymore. And now the skies are clear again because there's always gonna be something else. Coming up. You know, you learn that practicing medicine making rounds they'll get rounds made early in the morning, and I'm in the hospital six o'clock in the morning back when I did that stuff because I wanted to get around done because I knew catastrophes were out there waiting to enter the emergency room. And the worst thing to do is get caught up in three or four hour catastrophe. When you still got doesn't patience to see, you know in hostile and regular around says, always chaos, and so I just like things done so forensics for dummies was probably. The first deadline and by the time we have the contract out on the ad like five months to write the book. Of course, I'd already been working on it. And I turned it into months ahead of time. Because I couldn't I couldn't wait to be up. I couldn't stand to be up against a deadline. So in the Royal pains books were they had deadlines and Bob with them. And I didn't like that at all. So, but the others I say, you know, when it's done, I'll send it to you. Yeah. That's just really to know not having that living over your head. It's terrible. Restores are Martin how he's with all his success and everything you can just tell how he's getting freaked out because he hasn't had the latest book come game of thrones out. Even at that level. You could just I could just see feel his pain jar. Yeah. Yeah. Well, the most illegal burger that their friend of mine and leave is without a doubt. One of the most prolific writers I've ever known in my life. I don't know how he does what he does. But there was a period of time there for few years that he was writing diagnosis murder books and the monk books and he had to do two year of each of them. So they were staggered. So every three months he had to turn in a book. Okay. Now think about that ninety days you got to complete it. And I'm gonna tell you more than once. He would call me when you had like five weeks left, and he said, I have no idea what I'm going to write about. You know about say a month book diagnosis murder. So we kick some ideas around for a while. And finally after about twenty minutes. Okay. Okay. I got it. Now. Thanks, and then next thing, you know, three or four weeks later, he's completed the no it's it's shocking to me. You know, how how he does that? But he is he's been doing it forever. You know? That's amazing. Yeah. And that's the whole titan world is. So fascinating to me. So yeah, he's explain that world title. It's an interesting world and actually lease the one that got me involved it, but the media tie in all's are basically those that are tied to a some media. So it's usually a television story, and like I said Li did the diagnosis murder books? Well, he had also been I think the show runner for diagnosis murder. Our producer director that kind of thing for diagnosis murder for all those years. And so he was a natural choice for that. And then monk he written several monk episodes because Lee came from the screen writing world. And it's one of the reasons he still prolific screen writers have to produce stuff fast, like newspaper writers, they have to work on deadlines and volume all the time. So I think that's kinda spilled over into his novels. That's just the way. He right. But so he wrote those too, and then they came to him and ask him to do site. And he said, I don't wanna do side. But but my partner writing Bill Rabkin, we'll say turn into that. And then they came to anyone's do burn notice. And he said, I don't wanna be burned knows. But my brother Todd, we'll say gave the talk about several and then they came to about Royal pains. And he said, no, I don't do that. But I know someone who might and that's when he contacted me. Now, I got into two books that it's difficult when they're not your stories. They're not your tales or not your characters, and you got someone else that has a vested interest in what's going on. And it's not your baby. Yeah. We had lanes and all that stuff. So it's. A lot of restrictions and a lot of cooks in the kitchen. Hollywood Hollywood, movies producers and executives. Fascinating. The farthest. I just wanna touch base that I saw you website that you have a you have your podcast criminal mischief about their facet. I'm gonna subscribe to it right away. Back a few years ago, Jan Burke, and I did a radio show called crime and science radio where we interviewed people in the industry, and I mean, you know, forensic pathologist and beyond profiler, we had Kathy Reich's of bones on their Linda fairstein law and order is you and her bestselling all we built fast, and then the body farm and university of Tennessee where they Termine how people decay after they die Cyril Wecht, the great pathologists, and we had tons of people on there. We did seventy shows I think and for three and a half years, but we finally shut that down because it was a lot of work. There's a lot of hurting cats getting everybody together. So we could do the fifty minute interviews at the same time. And and we kind of run through all my friends and the friends. And I think we've pretty much covered the subject so that went away, and then, you know, you're gonna have so goes by and you know, I'm kinda missing that. 'cause I like radio I like all that stuff. And then Pam stack we ran into this last year, and she said you'd need to do a five cast. I'd love you to do it. And I said I'd like to do that let me think about, but then I do I really wanna get into interviewing like you're doing here again hurting cats again, I decided no, I don't so basically it's called criminal mischief the art and science of crime fiction. And if you subscribe to it, what do you get you get me? That's it. I talk about stuff. I talk about cases. I talk about questions ever see that talk about writing skills. I talk about voice and point of view, and I talk about crimes, and I talk about poisons. And and and and I talk about each show has a slant appoint I'm going to talk about a subject and just talking about it. And then I always. Give what I call show notes that I connect people too. So you can go there there are links where you can learn more about it's kind of a little outland of talk plus links, so you can go. Learn more about the topic of the day. You know, I talked about one of them was called about Olympia, and it was found at first Manassas where basically they grounded the whole pit of very limbs from the civil war. I talked about the state of the art of antibiotics and surgery and anesthesia how it was back in the eighteen sixties and how the surgeons greatest steal speed because they didn't have Addison throw around they weren't out on the battlefield most places. So you give us an alcohol and something to bite on and saw them off. So speed was important. And of course, got infected and they died anyway. The problem, but they blown all these limbs and a giant limpet, and so it kinda opened and this just been discovered at Manassas. And so I just. I vamp for for twenty thirty minutes about the state of the art of circuit. Well, hopefully, people who write historical crime fiction can use this. And if not it'll open their mind, and they'll go look at some other stuff, and as they're doing research, they'll come up with some story idea at the end of the day that really what it's all about how I want. I won't people to write, you know, I wanna read so I won't be able to write stuff. Questions. With that all the time. To to change that. That still happens. So you know, and the blog I run I have my podcast. I've all my writing. And I answer questions for people that I got nothing to do. And then there's a place for all this stuff is it would be probably your website, DP Lyle, MD dot com. That's it. That's the one. Yeah. That's what I'm looking right now, you can have links to his podcast and your books and all that good stuff radio show. They're all all seventy shows are on there. So you find something of interest to you. You know, listen to that. 'cause it's from the experts and then have a whole new series coming out in October that have started to so Bobby came Harper McCoy series. And that's a whole another set of characters is is going to be much darker stories than the Jake Longley stuff. So. Skin in the game. And it'll be out Tober. And I'm already about a third of the way through the follow up for that. So. From you this year. In october. Yeah, that's pretty cool. So you get the the sunshine state more comedic than the other ones could be a little bit more. Oh, yeah. All right. Thank you so much for being on the on the bus Janssen docking us busy talking with you. Thank you enjoy. I appreciate you having me on thanks for this. Author podcast.

We welcome you back to the program and should be a great Friday is we've made it to the end of the weekend. Really glad to hear from all of you. A lot of guests including seth. Emerson talking about the dogs will have Jeremy Germany's a former. Uk Defensive Lineman who is now in the front line as a covert one thousand. Nine nurse Also Jordan Davis the LSU graduate who has had a number of number one hits lately and we began with Scott Wolf who covers USC. I'd inside USC has covered the Trojans for many many years. And that's US's always an interesting place because the coaching uncertainty remains other major issues. Going on Scott. Thank you great to have you back on the program. How you doing? We're doing okay. So tell us about life in southern California right now especially from this in the parlance of sports because everyone is is under a different set of rules. But what's what's the readout there in terms of the upcoming college football season. Well I think. Us's you know really probably going to be one of the last school to really open They announced they're gonNA have summer school. You know online. And they don't know yet what they're gonNA do in the fall. The athletic facilities are pretty much closed and abandoned right now. You can't even use them if you want to if you're an athlete But the campus is a ghost town. Everything is being done online right now and You know we don't know if there's going to be a football season and Know doubtful based on the government Comments I was going to be any fans at least in September. So you know I think right now. A lot of people have no idea what's going to happen. Let me ask you about the opening game maker. There has been a flurry of rumors and again. I'll be at rumors that that. Se and Alabama may not meet a primarily for this reason. Tcu Has I think a game at cal at Berkeley The opening weekend obviously Alabama has C. And there's some people in Texas who just don't want to take this down to the wire Which brings me to the question. Do you think. Sc will be in Dallas that opening weekend of the college football season. Well personally. I don't even think Klay helping wants to play that game. So I think he'd be happy if they came up with an excuse. Not to play Alabama and you know I. I think that the PAC twelve is probably going to be slower to make a decision then the SEC. And I think we're going to have a little bit of a dilemma. Probably in you know June or early July where maybe the SEC? Being more definitive on what's going on and the past twelve still taking a wait and see approach so At a certain point. Usc might have to bite the bullet and decide. You know what it's going to do but but my sense is you know they Alabama WanNa play and that They'LL WANNA put that game on in Dallas. So I think there's going to be pressure on. Usc Frankly in terms of the way the state is being operated would anything preclude them from getting on a plane and and going and playing a game elsewhere. Well I think the pressure will be from the USC administration. Because they've been you know very cautious about everything and You know I think it's going to be a matter of will. They allow a team to get on a plane if school is not accepting students on campus for classes so you may have a lot of pressure in that regard. I think you know what they'll have to worry about with the governor. The mayor is for the home games whether they'll be allowed but the governor said yesterday you know he can't imagine Crowds crowds at Games without some kind of vaccine available so That's GONNA put pressure on the rams and chargers USC UCLA at least at the beginning of the season can only stay on that for a second. But I find it futile to ask you a million questions about Klay Hilton in se. If if if we're not sure they're going to play but Give us the lay of the land with Larry skied in the in the in the PAC. Twelve in terms that we've heard from the governor's what is Larry saying? And what do you think ultimately going to happen out there? Why feel he's been fairly quiet? I mean basically you've seen more of the University presidents athletic directors talking. And Right. Now you've got about five schools in the PAC twelve that say they anticipate allowing students on campus in the fall. And that's the first step to having College Football Games So USC is in that second group. That has not made a decision yet. So that's where we get into a little bit of a sticky situation in terms of the Alabama game but I think the PAC twelve you know they're always followers so they're going to wait for the NCAA to make an announcement and then they'll see what the big ten's doing in the ACC and all these other places. And then Larry Scott a politician so then he'll put his finger to the wind and decide what to do Scott. Wolf joining us from inside USA. Well let's let's just for this conversation. Assume that we do get that game. What what would we will we? I don't know what the tends to us here. is is going to be When we when we played the game you know they. They have a completely new defensive coaching staff and Most of the offensive coaches have been there only a couple years now so They have a weird kind of. I call it a Frankenstein Team where Clay Helping. Kinda the figurehead. And he didn't hire the defensive assistance and those guys are kind of doing their thing and then Graham Harrell is offensive coordinator. He's doing his thing. So you kind of like a three headed monster running the program coaching it and you know they do have some talent so I think right now. The expectations are you know. They'll be ranked in the top fifteen before the season and probably favor win the PAC twelve south. But you know the the fan wants to know what helping situation is and you know I think People WanNa know now. Well we'll they fire him if there's not a full regular season and if that GONNA help him in some way so they have a lot of questions frankly. My question is how. He ended up returning for this season. Forget next season well I believe that University President Carol Folk that decision and it really was out of the hands of the athletic director. Mike Bohn because he had just come in think she told him she didn't. WanNa make that change. And that infuriated the fan base. And that's one of the reasons you know if they are averse to change it seems like and that's why I'm saying you know they'll probably be extra cautious on deciding to play football. 'cause she's not into this point. You know real athletic minded president so I don't know if the athletic director is GonNa make you know these big decisions regarding sports and we don't even know if he's going to be able to fire. Helton this year. Frankly whether that happens or not Scott. I guess it would be more Germane if it does it last year. The hot name Urban Meyer. What would your guess be is there? Is there someone out there or a couple of people that the SC fan base seems to want to see in that spot? Well a lot of them still do want urban Meyer. There's been a lot of rumblings. The laugh Couple of months. Luke fickle would be the guy because Mike Bone was the guy that hired him at Cincinnati and You know he knows him. Already and Luke fickle. Turn down the Michigan State job which seemed odd to some people but maybe he knew that you know. Usc might be available to him a year later. So that's kind of a natural choice. I think ultimately for the USC FAN. They'll be so happy if there's a coaching change that whoever replaces. Klay Hell they're not gonNA be too hard on initially and they ran lane. Kiffin often passed on Iran for all of this right. Yeah but they're celebrating today. I don't know if you know this has hired the to hype video guys from Lsu. So I have not heard that that's important. That's considered a milestone in the program these days to win the off season so To be able to get a video guy is considered a big deal around here and they stole someone from Ed Osha on apparently so That's what they have to celebrate these days. Scott tell you I mean you're just around the from Hollywood. So video does does rule the rule the roost. Well Yeah the interesting. I talked to somebody at Lsu Yesterday and they told me that the one guy they hired they think he just wants to go to Hollywood and get a job so he might leave. Usc At the first opportunity so May Not may be short-lived celebration until they get a few video of him before you go in and I know it's a often debated subject and particularly last year and up until the national championship game but I happened to be out there on the day of the SEC Stanford Game. I think believe always. You're on one that game and he sing popular. I had a late-season lost it. Cost Him some support. But how much regret has there been or remains about letting it. You're on leave. There's been huge regret because he was a legendary assistant coach. I mean beloved by the fans and the players and really the only guy that didn't really like him with Pat Haden and the athletic director. He refused to hire him. Because Pat Hanes kind of an elitist and that Oh Schantz more of a blue collar type guy. So he didn't Mesh with him. But there's not you know a few days ago by even now where I don't have somebody bringing up. They should've kept at Ron of the coach at USC. And no it's it's been something that's GonNa Haunt Pat Haden and forever. I think and that's never misses an opportunity to stick it to USC. Whether it's having Marcus Allen on the sideline or John Robinson or hiring a coach from USC. So it's still a hot issue and and winning the national championship is bringing it more in the spotlight. So there's a Lotta. Usc Fans at right now would love for Eto drawn to be the coach at USC. Amazing Scott always great to talk to you. It's so great to hear honesty and objectivity and hope you'll come back in. I'd love to come back anytime. Paul they will take yourself Scott. Thank you very much Scott Wolf covers. Sc and this is not. This is not the first time you're going to hear about this. I mean there. There are some real concerns You heard you address it. And I've heard it from many other places that the Alabama southern cal game is going to be played at Jerry's world There's already serious conversation about TCU replacing sc because of the circumstances I in the country but especially on the west coast. We'll get your reaction to all that and guest list that we can't wait to tackle. Were one down often running today on a Friday after listening to the Paul Finebaum show podcast? We welcome you back. And let's check in with PAT in one. Robins Georgia. Hello Hey all thank I thank you. I enjoyed the interview with Scott. Scott Wolf. That was so transparent. I wish more reporters would speak their mind. Does oppose the playing political games. Well we got a good one right there Thanks number one followed. I figured out how to walk safely in the neighborhood okay. This morning I walk right down the middle of the street I can. I can hear the vehicles and I can see the vehicles and all social distance with me so I mean that's good to know you. We want you to be careful. I know The interview last night with Brett Murphy. I think you and I have a front row. Seat to the demise of the myths of the scholar Athlete Amateur Status That's if what he says comes true. And if there's a if they have the student athletes on campus taking online classes and there's nobody else on campus or there's a the minimus number of students just so they can say they've got students back on campus and that's that's okay with me. I just wish that they would be Transparent and both of about it of and I wanted to ask you if we had to come up with another name for for speeding athletes Would you prefer semi pro or indentured servitude ladder? Yeah I do hope that if if we ended up going this road and certainly college football can do whatever it launch Liquid hiding behind ridiculous and Disingenuous phrases I think that's a great point brick book Excuse me PAT because It's going to be professional football. There's no getting around it and and if absolutely and if that is what it takes to save. The Athletic Department said fine at a at a hundred and thirty colleges and universities. The wealth share the wealth have added. I. I would love for somebody to come on here and quit giving us a a sermon and just tell the truth. We're desperate and we WANNA see college football. This is the only path we have quit. This is about students I and fine. I hope we have college football. I know you to Pat. I just I just want I don't want I just want them to be honest about it. Yes sir. I certainly agree with you when an order for me to get my CPA license. That was fifty years ago. I had the worked for a CPA for two years. Okay I had to pass an exam that I would never wanNA take again. But they wouldn't give me the license until I worked for a CPA for two years. And and I get it. That's there's a lot of professions like that and that's about what our student athletes are like right now because you know there's no pro. They got to get through the college atmosphere and at least in basketball. They've got one and done right now. You're absolutely right about. Hey Pat great to be careful on the streets of your neighborhood. Brian is in Atlanta. Hello Brian Hey Paul thanks for taking my call thank you. I'll probably all over the place where this thing. I was listening. I don't get to security you but but you must have some twenty our people. You know four hours a day because I listened to jeff yesterday when he talked to you about. You're not coming back at some of the callers. What is this a my opinion? You know you got some callers. We'll I'm GONNA just say the Times I do. Listen about six of them in everyday life. The two mikes and all and then of course were all and I'm and who's the other one Gm Yeah those three like the first three named they just all they do is critique the use of they come in after you've talked to guest and they critique what he says so you don't really have have to have to come back to them in the other three guys. They just having a lot of fun poking fun at each other and having a good fun time on your show so you don't have to come back at them to them so I think he was a little bit rough on you but You know he's you remember. He talked to you about years ago. Used to really Debate them and Adam hard. Do you remember that conversation? I do yeah so I thought he was kind of giving you. That was That was the guy that was the guy in Columbus Ohio. Yeah you don't have a if you don't have a debate to go with them but it's you you. Don't everything argue with them. I think you'll to. I'll just kinda appeases you and tell you that you right and the callers or whatever they call it well let me say a few of the things I forget about the call and stuff To two weeks or sixty days the day from now for sixty days. We'll just be in limbo. We'll know something real strong July. What would that be you? I know we'll know before then. Yeah do Brian. I don't think we'll know here's why a lot of things that are. That are out there right now and I think one thing the SEC have to make a decision about is their media days Almost everyone else has already said they're not having media days Other than virtually You you don't have a media days if you're not having a football season so by the media days a second week in July so in order to to do that you you have to know. You're having a season so I think the decisions are going to come earlier. Now there may not There's still some some things they can change like the NFL schedule last night. There were a lot. There are a lot of windows in that scheduled to change. It was done strategically. And there's still a sense that it may not come off on the on the on the dates that they They gave it a really great to have you on appreciate it. If you don't have anybody come up with a scenario. They delayed it three weeks and you would start on the fourth week of the season and keep schedule just like it is in three games into December. Has ANYBODY COME UP WITH THAT SCENARIO SAYING BOOK? I don't think anyone really is. I don't I don't think the issue is starting it on September fifth and May maybe for southern cal. I don't think it's going to be for Georgia Alabama. I think the issue is. It really comes now. I mean what what's going on in the country over the next couple of weeks I think will will dictate whether or not we can get to the college football season or if we get through this next phase. Well let's hope we do. I think we'll be okay up against a break much more to come. You're listening to the Paul Finebaum show. Podcast back out of Friday afternoon lots to do today. It's been quite a week. It's not over yet. We still have three and a half hours ago but if you missed any of what we have done all week sit back for just a and listen to another incredible week on the show. Doshi sleep. Now let's roll it back with the finebaum Friday rewind University of Minnesota Region Michael Shoe. I wouldn't be surprised to stevescalise size. Look away from the NCWA. The only problem is you have all the other parts of the NC Double A. And all their infractions committees and committee at the committee that are going to have to realign. If something like that fastest totally happened. I think it could happen pretty soon. Within the next couple of years. I mean it just depends on what everybody wants. If if at the end of this pandemic everyone says hey we need to keep everybody gather and let's put call lesson sink combat and all. That kind of stuff could see that happen. But I think that would be kind of a temporary short-term process where people are gonNA realize that it's not gonNa work not tell you excited we are to welcome the next guest governor. Mike Dewine of the state of Ohio Governor. Thank you very much for joining us. It's great pleasure for everyone to to have you with us. Hey Paul good to be with you. I'm actually at my flaw here. Some splashing my springer. Spaniel is Creek so that doesn't bother you but I'm just wondering why on this show. I'm not a code. I'm not a player and anyway thanks for having me. I appreciate thank you. Yeah you may hear my dog barking admitted to. I'm GonNa tell you why I wanted you on. This is obviously a sport show And you went to school. Bowling Green Plays Ohio. State scheduled At the Horseshoe on September fifth assuming that school opens in that game remains on the schedule. What do you think it's going to look like you talk about football in the fall? We left Football Ohio. And it's just much too early to answer the question. What's going to happen. The big ten football in the fall or maximum football or any other football in Ohio or anyplace else. Is these too early? Anybody tells you they know Is making it up So I'M NOT GONNA make it up. Brett mcmurphy from the stadium joins us now. Do you believe when the season's over we'll have a college football champion. Yes Paul it'll be voted on by the. Ap THERE WON'T BE A playoff. That's my not to repeat. There will not be a playoff in your opinion. I think it depends on the college. Football playoff will hold a championship if all one hundred thirty teams cannot participate on. What do you think what do you think they'll do know that you know these people? I think they'll have a eighteen playoff because the money to import okay. But a minute ago you said you thought the forgotten number one. It's money so happy to welcome our next guest to the program. He is Jeremy Pruitt. The head football coach at the University of Tennessee coach. I'm reading Of Information With Tennessee ranked as high as number two in the recruiting class. Now we both know it's only may but Some of the commitments Unbelievable what what is going on in big orange country right now. Well I think it says a whole lot about the guys on our team You know recruiting is really a team effort with everybody in the organization But it starts with your players I And you know being here going on to the third season the guys that have been here throughout the last two years and the guys that we've recruited the last couple years or they're the guys that are really kinda heading up recruiting front and doing a fantastic job doing that. They believe in what's going on. They believe in the direction of the program And they know who they wanNA play with so these guys doing an outstanding job too long since we had our next guest on the program. He is of course. Griffiths deleted with the average rating on. These players is eighty nine point. Two one the average rating on Tennessee tiny class last year was eighty nine point nine two which was seventh in the SEC. They're still getting the same caliber players is they signed last year. They just got a committed earlier than they had them signed last year. But it's actually a little bit lesser caliber player right now. It's just good momentum and a lot of how did it probably is up next in Georgia holiday again disgusted with this cat. That like keeps calling in. I don't believe he is what he pretends to be and he makes his voice them. I listen to your show of sports and I know every now and then occasionally some different information but every time he calls. It's always about some kind of political point of view and thank. He's misleading people by put live state mowing Jim Tuscaloosa. I totally agree Paul. All of them she set on target. Dan owns the guy is a he all phony ball and I totally agree with Misdeeds D G again that that guy has been a phony from the start you up because some of these picks well that kind of guy but he's a phony Paul. That guy is a phony got been knowing that we have something unusual in this program. We WanNA do. Daddy was on a lady from Georgia. Attacked HIM. Jim called and Also Followed that up and cat. Daddy would like to respond off your show with people and I guess the House to Hate Him. Coming out the latest concern. I think a nerve will ma'am hearing loss. Get over it and you're what role don't get a lot of power. Not you open the closet. 'cause you clap the fat Klux Klan on racist the judge a person by speech and godless. And that's all I've got sick. God bless America. I don't hate them by my mother told me you don't hate Nevada. You might disagree with them and the Donald hate you but I just light both of you. Nothing to do. God bless America. Keep Hope Alive. Thanks Daddy what a week. Let's get back to the calls. Host Rick is in New Jersey Hillary. Hello alligators recruiting class was and how do what do you think you're gonNA fish this year? They did good recruiting Really well and I think they will make a run at the SEC east. I haven't quite made the call yet on that game. What do you think with your Georgia me? I think I think they really recruited pretty decently and I think as far as the east coast they proof from last year especially with the quarterback Kevin a little more experience. Yeah I think they're in good shape Hard to predict too much on Georgia. Haven't seen the quarterback play other than a wake forest which I'm not counting very much on. Hey thanks for the call. Jack is an Athens. Hey Call How's it going? Hey either after name. Hey So I was just wondering about what you think the relationship between Jamie Newman and George pickens. It's GonNa be this year. Should good and how to be good. Yeah and what do you think about Lot I mean. We lost a couple of good line in this year and especially losing sandpit and that was huge you think how do you think we're going to react to that. I think that is of some concern. I know I know Kirby. Smart has recruited extraordinarily well. But but I think that's where the season could be determined. You know the defense is going to be strong. Hey thanks for the call up against a break. We have more to come more guests around the corner including one of the hottest names and country music. All of that after the Cuban listening to Paul Finebaum show podcast. Welcome back to the program and you can join us right now at eight five five to four to seven to eight five.

Oklahoma ended up at belief southern miss and the typical kid who couldn't take coaching right. He wanted to go home and instead of Mama tells him to keep his but there she said well Marcus. If you're not happy come home. So he left Oklahoma thinking he was gonna go southern BS but he couldn't get in he had to sit out the world. Football League picked him up. Ryan gave a bonus I think of a half a million dollars to sign the injured his knee. But what's interesting about his story? He never saw any the money. He turned it over to a friend of his. Who was supposed to be his agent agent invested arm and he lost it. All so there's just stories out there that Thirty thirty is a great series and you can get it on Youtube but are several great story.

574 - 10 Horrible Habits That Keep You from Growing Rich

I hope you're having a wonderful holiday. I'm just back from fair. Hope Alabama where my husband and I spent a long weekend with his side of the family and we got to see some dear friends there as well. It was unusually warm for this time of a year so it didn't feel very Christmassy but it was wonderful to be with family and friends. I'm pulling a show from the archives for you this week it originally ran about at this same time last year. It's called ten horrible habits. That keep you from growing rich. It's been a popular show so I hope you'll enjoy it. I think for most people success. Success doesn't come without first developing good financial habits. And that's something that we really want to think about as we head into the new year but I will say that sometimes times. What's more important is acknowledging bad financial habits that need to be dropped? So don't forget those as you're setting your resolutions. What can you stop doing? That has been counterproductive. And you know when you eliminate those behaviors you can achieve a lot more with your money. Maybe without we're having to try quite so hard so in this show.

Make your New Year's resolutions a breeze checkout out quick and dirty tips dot com slash podcasts. To find some great new shows to listen to. That's quick and dirty tips dot com slash podcasts. All right let's get into our bad habits that we want to kick this year number one living without an emergency fund. You Know Oh that life is full of financial surprises and costly emergencies. The antidote to that is simple. It's having cash in an FDIC. The insured savings account which is known as an emergency fund. Having this cash cushion to fall back on is going to help you reduce stress. CBS navigate financial hardships. And avoid going into that in the first place even a tiny emergency fund is better than nothing. So don't I think that if you haven't started you don't have anything saved that it's just pointless. Don't feel hopeless about it. Starting and accumulating accumulating something is always better than nothing. I would love for you to commit to putting away a set amount on a regular basis such as one hundred dollars a month or fifty dollars a week. Automate your savings. You can set up a separate direct deposit that puts a flat amount or even a percentage of each of your paychecks in the bank. Just ask your employer to set that up. Most of you already have direct deposit for a checking account. You can just set up a second direct deposit that goes over into your savings account so again it can be a flat amount or a percentage. If you're self employed you can create create a recurring transfer. That moves money from your checking into a savings account on a monthly or weekly basis. The bottom line is that out of sight means out of mine. Fine so it's much easier to save when it's automated and you're not tempted to spend that money and if you say well Laura Money's just too tight even say five dollars a week week you need to come up with solutions try working overtime getting a second job starting a business on the side. It doesn't have to be forever wherever it could just be some overtime or a second job until you reach a savings goal. I recommend having a minimum of thousand dollars dollars on hand in that. FDIC insured count however working up to three to six months. Worth of your living expenses is definitely lead. The Best Goal all right bad habit number two is forgetting about retirement. It can be difficult to think about your golden years. Here's when you're a new graduate or you're in an entry level job but when you start investing early you lock in your ability to grow rich in in fact it's almost like getting your retirement at a fire sale one of the most important factors. And how much you accumulate for retirement depends is on when you start investing even if you don't have much to invest getting an early start allows your money to compound and grow exponentially over over time so let's compare to people who each invest two hundred fifty dollars a month with an average annual seven percent return and so let's say we have one person Sam. He starts investing at age twenty five. He's going to have over six hundred fifty thousand dollars by age sixty fifty five but if his friend Lisa does not get started investing until. She's forty five. She'll only have one hundred thirty thousand thousand. Just spend by her sixty fifth birthday. So would you rather have six hundred and fifty thousand to spend or a hundred and thirty thousand to spend in retirement. Obviously you want more more so you need to start early. If Lisa wanted to end up with as much as Sam but she started twenty five years later she started in her forties instead dead of in her twenty s instead of investing two hundred fifty dollars a month she would have to invest over twelve hundred fifty dollars per month. So don't wait because catching up is just incredibly expensive and difficult. The bottom line is you cannot delay making investing for retirement inhabit. It's a huge mistake to think that you can't afford it or that you'll just catch up later if you're waiting for a raise a bonus Mr a windfall. That's going to come some day. You're burning precious time. You are never too young to begin planning for your future bad habit number three not maxing out a savings match at work if your employer matches some amount one of a 401k or a four zero three B at work you better consider yourself very fortunate you must always save enough to get that fold match from the employer. It's free money and it's designed to incentivize your plan participation and even if the market drops it really doesn't matter you can earn impressive returns when you're getting matching money. That's one hundred percent return on your money. When it's matched the matching money? It may come with a vesting schedule. Which means that you need to stay employed for a certain amount of time before you own all event but even if you leave your job without all your matching watching typically you may have a partial vesting even if you leave with some of it? It's money that you didn't have to work for. So do I need to say more matching his free free money so if that is an option for you definitely definitely get it and even if you don't have matching at work I still recommend participating in a a retirement plan bad habit number four being too conservative with your investments though we tend to use use the terms saving and investing interchangeably. They're really not the same thing. Savings is cash. You keep on hand for short term so these are things like planned purchases or even those unexpected emergencies investments or the opposite investments or for your big long term goals roles such as retirement that require a lot of growth in order to meet those goals in general I don't recommend investing. Your cash reserves serves because the value could drop at the exact moment. You need to spend it so you want to make sure that your short term goals are liquids. So that's why we call what an emergency fund but if you make a habit of keeping all your money in no risk accounts not putting any amount of it at risk for the future. Sure so if you're thinking well I'm just going to keep my retirement money in a bank savings account or a CD. Problem is inflation is going to rob you of spending power power over time you've got to make at least three percent or more to keep up with inflation so if you're making less than that in a CD or savings account you're actually losing money over time. So that's not where you want your retirement money to be. We want to save for the short term invest for the long term bad bad habit number five making impulse purchases spending too much on. Impulse purchases is the reason that many people have too much debt. So so if you're addicted to shopping you're spending to boost your mood or you're making many large unplanned purchases. It's time to break the habit this shear. I did a show called fourteen tips to stop impulse buying and save money that I would really recommend you go back to if this is an issue for you that podcast number five hundred twenty eight create a mantra or a short phrase that can help you remember your financial goals and nip impulse spending being in the bud so maybe you're monitor. Is I only by what I budget or I always wait thirty hours before buying anything over thirty dollars or I only by what I truly need. Come up with a mantra that you will remember that can really help you curb those those impulse purchases before we cover the next five habits. I WANNA mention that support for this.

That's grammar girl available wherever you listen. Okay we're Bantu bad habit number six not being a savvy a spender. Sometimes the way we buy is a bad habit that needs to be stopped for instance not comparing prices for everyday goods services online retailers insurance companies and utility providers have really made it easier than ever for us to shop and even negotiate when possible. One idea that I have for you is to create a bills spreadsheet so list each company's name your monthly payment in your account number at least once a year blackout time to review all those bills and see how you can either cut back request discounts or switch providers in order to save money consider dropping services such as your landline phones. Your premium cable. TV and your gym memberships ships and see how it works out. You can always buy them again in the future and you may even pay less if you go back a new or returning customer also remember that. There are plenty of sales coupons and deal sites that help you avoid paying a retail prices. Try shopping a new way this year. Check check out a new online auction site a new wholesale club or even facebook marketplace. Before your next big purchase bad habit number seven only paying the minimum on credit cards paying the minimum monthly credit card. Payment is good. I mean it's certainly they better than not paying it. But it doesn't mean that you're paying down your debt. In fact your balanced can actually be increasing if you are accruing doing more interest each month so make it a habit to pay off your entire credit card balance each and every month when you use credit cards responsibly.

WanNa call in about it and we'll take your calls in just a matter of seconds. Eight four four two four rich number to dial again. Charles Davis was on an hour one and I said to him. Have you heard the Philip Rivers News and his response was another baby? Another baby which is an instant classic. Instant classic now fills nine so. It's not an outrageous. Show baseball player. The story is that Philip Rivers has already announced. He's got a coaching Gig when he's done playing in the NFL. Now we all know. He's got a one year deal with the Indianapolis Colts and people think it's just one year end done. I don't think so I think Phillip loves playing. Football Phillips. Got a huge pay day. I know he loves football to the point. Where you're about to hear if you don't know it. What is next? Gig IS. I personally think he's GonNa stick around Indianapolis Jacobson's not ready to go just yet. I Know Jacoby percents still sitting there. Those thirty eight though I get it but look at Brady and brees man. They're playing in their forties. Thirty eight still a young man's game at the quarterback position. I know he lies retired. But big. Ben's Combat Big Ben's got eight. Look you could say what seven methods I get it. I get a yard high standards. Not Exactly TB twelve. I understand that the way that the photographs of Big Ben. Right now that they're going from at quarterback duck hodges to duck dynasty. I understand that but I think when the Bell Rings Big Ben will be ready and he's got a few more farve like years left in him with him gunslinging his way through an NFL season. Getting his team in playoff contention if not tantalizingly close to a super bowl and wondering if he's going to be playing the next year over and over and over again I think big Ben's got a few more years left in a man look at that photograph right there on screen. Hey that's Corentin Ben. Stay at Home Ben. This a few weeks ago I mean. Yeah what he looks like now look like. Cliff Kingsbury. No I know I like. That's the opposite football opposite. That's the football opposite of heavy of quarantining and but big Benz deal right. That's it in Glazer. Save Ben's idea of working out was Some beer golf. And maybe a yoga poser to come on but this young man's get I mean our rogers. That's the crazy thing about this. He's thirty six. WanNa translate his athletic ability into what breeze and Brady doing and also the drive. The determination the chip on the shoulder born from a draft day. He's got maybe five six years left in them. That's the crazy part about this. And we talked about it with Joe Buck and go to our youtube page about what they think. But here's a Philip. Rivers News Philip. Rivers when he is done playing is going to be. The football coach at Saint Michel Catholic High School in Fair Hope Alabama Friday Night Lights. Full clear is full hearts. Philip can't lose and that was announced today when when he's done in the interim the athletic director of the school will be the interim coach. Paul Nap Stein is the name of the coach there and again I'll just sit up straight. I think Paul Map Stein. Sounds more like the kid. I went to Trails and camp with. I think I was bunk mates with him in bunk. Ten Paul Map Stein. How did he get to? Saint Michel Catholic High Fair Hope Alabama. That's a story. But in the meantime he's going to keep the seat warm for Philip. I love this league. It is a narrative generating machine. The National Football League is a narrative other Alabama by Mobile Phillips from Northern Alabama. I mean he found it and they found him when he's done his dad. Steve Rivers was an all state quarterback he was an all state Steve was the Athens. High School coach. And Philip was an all state quarterback in the State Alabama for you went to NC state now southern California and now Indianapolis but Charles Davis Line of the day. You're the Philip Rivers News. Another baby fantastic. Let's take some phone calls here on the rich. Eisen show nate and Kansas. City's been hanging on for a while. What'S UP NATE? Read Cuza going? What's going on in your mind reacting to the niners schedule being released yesterday and I'm really excited for our week. One game at home against the Arizona cars eleven games last year against them were extremely close. And now they have the Andre Hopkins. So it's GonNa be a really exciting season. Richard Sherman De'andre Hopkins Week One. Let's go that's a matchup? And of course. Of Course Durell. Rivas will be live tweeting about whether or not Sharma's traveling with the Andre Hopkins. That'll be great and you also have their new linebacker from Clemson. I believe Simmons Against George kiddle defense. I do like that one. I didn't even think of that. Because that's the that's that's why you get Isaiah. Simmons is a guy you could try. Maybe take kiddle out of the game and that'll be an we'll just see how deebo Samuel can do with brandon against an Arizona cardinals. Defense that does have Simmons in the middle of Patrick Peterson and Chandler Jones. And that'll be a great game and why the NFC west is trying to say. Don't forget about us when everybody's talking about Brady joining the NFC south that's great. And then you know you know week. Eight is at Seattle week nine home for Green Bay Week. Ten at New Orleans. The niners at New Orleans. You WanNa talk about. Kit will make an play. My Gosh Yeah. That's good about the fact that we are playing the seahawks at home to the end decision rather than having to go against them on the road like last season so hopefully doesn't require drake and lot and make a miraculous play. I'm a last second fourth down sort of situation like it was last year where to bring it nate. Call back anytime. Let's Newton Kansas City Let's go to Tom. Sherman Oaks California right up right up the road from us. What'S UP Tom? Rick really enjoying your show the last two months especially thank. You really appreciate that. Thank you I'm I'm a packer fan. Like you say Green and gold till I'm dead and cold but that's not why I called a little a little Al Michaels Info go on okay. Anybody most people on the planet when they think of and Mr Michael's okay Of course think about the eighty hockey team course. Well I can't for al about a dozen years after club I love it Al. The biggest miracle and I never believed in miracles even after the eighty hockey team but I witnessed L. breaking eighty no bill and and well if anybody who's ever played golf with Al Michaels knows that him shooting seventy nine at Bel Air Double See Is a true miracle You saying that he did. He did he did he. Fire in a whole Rusi style. At one point is you're saying well Number Eighteen Bel Air. You know that green right all shore. That's a that's a tough one underneath the bridge under these beautiful bridge. Yeah Okay so ten is back right. I'm a little Chris that's a long. That's a long one from the middle of the Fairway Al headed. That's a long well. I thinking might have been lying. Three gotta he was over on the far left side of the green about pin high. So it's our you believe the top one of the toughest PUTT. Putt course okay I remember it was a Monday. 'cause bunch caddies were down in the canyon hitting balls. He stopped when he saw on the green Putty up the slope at the beginning And then when you get to the quest it's just it's gotta be dying because he just runs turns dead the right and runs down the hill really difficult but so all the caddy's ten or twelve caddies that were involved ready to go out and play that. Monday was the Monday Stop and watch this and I can't really remember who else was a group. Don Almir might have been following. That sounds about right. Sounds about right for the era that you're talking about so he jar did he make the PUTT is what you're saying that he birdied eighty I? I knew I knew it was going in when it reached the top of the hill heart. It wasn't going too fast. It didn't hit the home jumped two feet in the air. It just perfect easy. Shot seventy nine. You believe in miracles. Sex Call Tom Great. So I mean there's a lot out brought a lot of people from football and life and business out to play with him and there's only five of us including Al that truly witnessed the Miracle Good Story to weaving in the DEA. Believe in miracles. Not done I mean we even altogether Schuyler in California. You're here on the rich Eisen show. It's up skyler doing on doing fine house. She got a good story playing golf with aller because that has been set very high man. He's had a couple of questions for you sure I'M A DIEHARD CHARGER. San I actually was born and raised down in San Diego. Okay I just want to. What your standpoint is on the quarterback situation they got going on. Well tyrod Taylor is GonNa Start Man. There's just you know it's difficult for know a rookie to be ready to make jump from the pack twelve. Despite how talented Herbert is and I know. He had an excellent game in his final game in southern California at the Rose Bowl. But this is a whole different ball of wax when you're coming out of the gate and with no minicamp of which to speak and who knows what training. Camp GonNa look like. So I think it's going to be tyrod Taylor but Herbert will take the reins at some point. The I don't know when that might be. You might show some sort of ability when they're there is an ability to get a team together And come out of the gate like that but You gotta you figure you know going in with your own Ohio State Guy Into Cincinnati with so that you can take care of business right there and then home dates against Kansas City Carolina and then at Tampa at New Orleans. That'll be a tough start. But I I think you you go through that crucible with tyrod Taylor and see how you go and keep Herbert bench percent. No I got the date in and I got a sure. What's your what's your what's your second question. Then I gotta be down. The road chargers actually has one hundred percent to do with Philip rivers. You talking about do you think he's going to be more successful with the better question. No question about it and thank you for the call. Those that Lyman is my goodness. He's never had an offensive line like the one that will be playing behind an Indianapolis. Come on now. Oh by the way I found the perfect spot for Justin Herbert to get the start in his first career.

Hey Rich I had a question about Do you believe Cam Newton's being blackballed because I can't believe the Jaguars would not go after Cam The guy is buff. He's ready to play So that's my question. You do you think he's being blackballed now. I think that he is Unfortunately in the cove nineteen vortex right now where. He's got a lot of questions about whether he can play Hold up and you know and then there's questions of whether he wants to be a starter or not and if you WANNA give Gardner Men's you try or you've got an eye on Trevor Lawrence. This is the worst quarterback for you to be bringing with chip on her shoulder wanting to take control of a situation. And obviously that would be a high class problem to have. If you've got Cam Newton in Jacksonville Florida starting to win football games for you and then you could tie yourself to a healthy Cam Newton with the monster chip on his shoulder for the next ten years. But if your plan is they've picked up Glennon and that to me makes no I know that but Glennon Glenn makes sense is if you WanNa give Gardner meant you the shot right right and you feel like the downside of Gardner Mints You. Not Working out is turning the Mike Glennon and you have the downside of that being Trevor Lawrence on the backside. You don't WanNa blow that up with Cam Newton. And that's why again.

Did you do your. Did you actually do your own stunk to go through the table at the Harrow Club? Jonathan Louis Alliance was in my stunt guy. For years ago. He's passed away now but I do the first lift and I wasn't doing a clean it up and so Louis comes in and it's it's a it's a very smooth cut that you go through there but now that the one that they used. There's Louis across the table. Okay gotta check on that at. I'll tell you what he was. A player Just on sports dog a Louis was a. I think an all American at UCLA in nineteen fifty. Three or fifty four and then played in Canada. After that I think I'm right about that man. Oh Man Jonathan Banks here on the rich Eisen show better call Saul so the final season. Do you have any idea when when you might get back to work at all right now on that? Jonathan is there a script anywhere that you haven't called anybody either because it's one of those things where you know? I imagine these lawyers studios are trying to figure out how we get them back in and how he'd do it and I would say that for them on the liability because I'm seventy three years old now in relatively decent shape at the same time you know the statistics at the statistics correct in might be rolling the dice to send me back in there. Well I'll tell you what your great added Jonathan and I just hope you stay safe. Stay at home and I love what you're doing in the show and and I know we briefly at Charity Golf Tournament Here in Los Angeles for the American Red Cross. It was good to see that and I hope to see again soon. Thank you Sir. Right back at back. Jonathan Banks Right here on the rich. Eisen Show Love Better Call. Saul love this love. This guy love this actor so good in everything I know. He's great and everything and it was not him at the Harrow Club. It was as stunt double and I you know when people come on his show and use certainly the magic words I guess. Correct George Carlin for for those out there. I'm out my politics but people get comfortable on this program. And he says that's the way talks were so he is kind of channeling. His Inner Mike Girma Trout. Kinda almost all the time. Yeah we've seen them play golf. That guy to be nicer could be nicer. Let's take a break when we come back. Jim NANCE will be joining us to take us home on this edition of the rich. Eisen show on this Friday. All right. We're back here on the rich. Eisen show here on YouTube dot com as well as Sirius. Xm Channel Two eleven. Gymnast will be calling us here shortly on the program. So did you look over the Patriots scheduled. You have any two cents on that subject. Christopher really chimed in very much on it other than week one week two sixteen. Oh Man Hey I love that. I kind of the early buy week normally. I'd like in the middle of the season or of near the end just because Tom's an older player obviously and so that rasped before the playoff is always important. But I think the by being in week six where it is kind of gives us a chance to assess where did himself sussing stems. God brother I understand but I'm just saying you know you kind of you take the first five weeks you can look at the tape and then process and then you get ready for Jimmy Garoppolo and then get ready for the nine and then to division games on the road at Buffalo at New York. I think you know one in four is a real possibility to start the season which is not something. We're used to as patriots fans but you know if you can get a win. Maybe over Miami to start the year maybe Denver which is kind of breaking in a new quarterback as well both home games. I think that'd be a good start. Get a couple of home wins. Obviously Kansas City Seattle. They're gonNA get blasted well. Dude here's the deal don't do. Here's the deal home for Miami at Seattle Home for Vegas at Kansas City home for Denver and stood them at better have his sea legs because common in week seven to just absolutely lay waste to your team is one James G and I think that's a real possibility to basically say if you would only done the right thing in his mom. Well I know it. It was possible the do is impossible. I get it was impossible. I get it. I'm wondering if fans are going to cheer Garoppolo. Geiko DOT COM is a spot free to go right now.

Earlier in the show we had al Michaels and Joe Bach and last night. I had those two gentlemen on with our final guests at the day to take us into the weekend none other than my friend from. Cbs Sports and the Voice of the NFL on CBS gymnasts. Hello again Jim Hello friend. It's good to be back with you. That was fun last night. A little hijinks good lapse all the way around. Well you know Jim. I don't need to tell you being the the veteran sportscaster and legendary voice that you are you know how sometimes when you're hooked up via satellite or zoom or whatever's going on in this day and age with two or three or four people. Sometimes you just don't know how the cross talk is going to go. And then somebody just decides to just lobbing a verbal jab in the middle of the cross talk and then you figure out how the cross talk is actually working. That's what happened last night. Yeah I didn't mean to go there. Yup He's coming right off at Joe And he was excited about the fact. That in your words this is GonNa have Tom Brady early and often did. I happened to notice That when I first saw our schedule that the brady versus Mahomes game as Kansas City at Tampa belong to CBS. That that jump off the page and it just it just struck me. That might as well have some fun with it over here. We're all friends anyway. So Yeah Joe Sue. Have Tom Early and often? But you didn't get the game that you really wanted to one that gets mahomes. We got it sorry. I know that I know it's exactly what happened. But I think he was a little bit He was a great sport about shocked. Then I just thought I'll double down on this and have to be a little playful with our great friend Mr Michel's and talk about what is the most watched broadcast window of the NFL. And that that I understand gotten some Some legs this people. Try to defend this I guess I guess you know my point was they. Are The number one rated show in time. Nbc Sunday night football and they should be very proud of that. It's that's true that's undeniable. However as I pointed at night Joe and I would take you to the Matt. Point out that the most watched or the highest rated. Because somebody might try to say well. Let's just watch all right? The most watch but also the highest rated broadcast window is that doubleheader window that CBS Fox alternate with during the course of the season. Well as everybody pointed out that it raises all football and broadcasting boats and as we talked about today Alan I and Joe and I we all agree that it was the first flex of the season last night you had the first flex of the football season I hate. I missed them. I'M GONNA go back and we can find all of this and pull up linked to hear what they have some some comments about it We had fun with it and you know because it was a fun conversation seeing all of us together you know the football and so many people need it and you know obviously we can discuss about when it might happen or if it happens at Cetera so forth but just to get this. I know you you you've you liken it to a Christmas morning when you get the NFL schedule in your hands and you have every right to be talking about your excitement in that manner. And I'll just give you the floor on on what else other than that Mahomes Brady game that might have left off the page at you. Should I should just Expand your thought about Christmas morning for me. It's one of my favorite. I would say it's in my top five sporting events of the year. Now somebody would say well. That's not a sporting event. Well for me I mean I get a final where I'm going to be going for four consecutive months and I'd love to start to kind of play these games out mentally thinking about where the teams might be and you're with atmosphere might look like so when the schedule comes down it's been presented to the actually rose from your show of forwarded it to me and I just had the CPS schedule when we were on last night. I still had not had a full grasp of what the overall NFL schedule looks like. But I studied it. I grabbed it and I excuse myself from a little family gathering and of course I. I just couldn't wait another minute so I came into my Home Office locked. The door put all of that things aside and looked up on my computer screen and started going through a very meticulously one week at a time and I just love the reveal and you guys did a great job the years on that show so I know there are some geeks out there like me who get into the NFL schedule and trying to figure out. What's the main game that day and how all the chips fall for us at CBS? It was a very happy day I was. I think you're a Sunday afternoon package. So this would be a be lumping us together here with Fox. You start out by trying to figure out the weight of your doubleheader weeks we get eight they get eight double headers and we both have a double header on week seventeen. So it's the eight that you get handed to you by Howard cats and company and the NFL that you really want to examine i. That shows you the really. The strength of your regular season schedule are eight. Would definitely match on paper better than I think anything we've ever had before to have kids the city in Tampa. You pointed that outlets. Yes he got mahomes against Brady and as I pointed out we watch that movie. And it's always been great and we'll have the sequel with of course Tom and a Tampa uniform but we also have mahomes against breeze so we got to Kansas City. Dynamite double header wrote Games also Kansas City at home against New England early in the year you England. Kansas City is the sexy match up. Now we know number twelve missing but there's been enough again. Recent history with those franchises playing for an AFC shipped two years ago and a great game at Foxboro on that will be particularly early in the season that will be of great interest. And then you get these cross flexes that I know that's lost on some people but this got kicked in about five years ago where the NFL took games. Out of. Fox's allotment if you will just gave him the. Cbs and they did the same thing from our package over to Fox and some AFC games this to present the biggest audience. You can own some major matchups So they didn't get lost in glut of Sunday afternoon games so short of it is we have Philadelphia Green Bay. Lambeau lawyer in December. That's the first Sunday December man Bingo and we got we got an NFC. East game With the giants at Dallas Week Five. That's huge for us You know a lot of people are going to build the perception of what a match up. Might be based off last year's records I think the giants it'll be pretty good. I really do. I think that they're gonNA really surprise. Some people think are going to be a real force. There's another one here to jail. There's an here's another one dead leaps out at me to You know the niners the Patriots. We were just talking about it in in the break. Here Jim. Because after a bye week early on the season if stood him is struggling and it sure. Sounds like this is gonNA be Gig. Jim here comes Jimmy. G. Stalin's Jimmy G. Strolling into the house. I mean you WanNa talk about. Obviously it makes no sense to sit here and say well they made the wrong move because Brady is brady. And they won more times plural after making the decision to stick with him as opposed to Jimmy G. but that is you want to talk about a storyline. I mean week seven defending NFC CHAMPION. Niners coming into the Patriots. How certainly if? New England struggling with stem. That is going to be significant to say the least. The Jimmy G. Return again. Ask One of those games that when you looked at all the opponents schedules before the NFL match them up and send them out to their networks distributed. The game right. I never would have thought a million years that would be our game that would be a normally and there was a Fox game. You travel with your conference so with that being an up. C Team San Francisco on the road. That would not normally be our game so that was a nice gift and like I said it's early enough in the season. It's interesting to look at the Patriots. Start to the season going to be at home against Miami Week One. They got a Sunday night game at Seattle. Come back home against the raiders and then they play at Kansas City so to to winnable home games. I mean I. I'm not saying they're going to win. Both they might lose them but they lost the Miami Week. Seventeen issue but two very difficult road games to win with New Korea. I mean that's Seattle Kansas City. Yeah so you know you're coming out again. They could win them. You can lose them both. But it's a it's I it start to the season with a new leader Under Center it's GonNa be interesting what they do and then like I said Jimmy coming in all week seven I knew all along whether Tom was gonna stay with me wing or not as soon as we finish week. Seventeen see the opponents Matchups for the following year and I would at what New England had and I thought man that is the best that is the best set of opponents. I've ever seen anyone team have. That's A. That's a marquee team you know and you. They had games that the chargers in at the rams and anew they're going to play again Baltimore Kansas City and Houston is part of the first place schedule. But the way all the crossovers work this year with the NFC. So that meant against Seattle. That meant and a much improved. Arizona Team I meant San Francisco home. You didn't just didn't know how they're going to be dispersed but going in that New England was going to have like virtually every game is a great looking matchup. This was before Tom had made the decision to go down to Tampa Bay so Yeah we're going to still see them. A lot of people thought you and Tony might not be seeing now. The Patriots the frequency that you used to see how this plays out their opponents this year. It's a really marquis schedule for doing. Yeah they've got the the most difficult schedule. Obviously that that that's a that's a a maybe Mirage of a statistic because you know from year to year things change I mean. The forty niners are a perfect example of that at this point last year they were coming off of drafting second overall. Nobody was really even seeing them in the Super Bowl. But that's exactly what happened. Jim Nance a few minutes left with with with you. Jim and that stat. I we all we. We lean on just as much as we do right. Yeah opponents difficult schedule difficulty. 'cause I give you guys standing up last night on the screen so you had like Baltimore. Pittsburgh and Cleveland worth three of the top four with the easiest schedule and you know why that is when you do the opponents schedule now. They have the factor in Cincinnati twice at two and fourteen. Not once but twice so when you're factoring in the wind percentage of your opponent you're already at four and twenty eight when you do the math just because you're match ups that include the Bengals and that's not a slam at the bengals but I'm just trying to show how these numbers I don't think Baltimore schedule as easy at all. Cleveland's is going to be better. We know Pittsburgh within healthy stays out. They're going to be better and then Baltimore has that I play schedule of New England and and and and and Kansas City and Houston on top of a game against the Philadelphia and the rest of the NFC. Now what's easy about that? It just got skewed because the Cincinnati. Double record went in went into the equation. Yeah and the one thing we talked about with Joe Last Hour Gym and I've got about three minutes left before the show ends here That you know he he was kind of it. It landed on him that you know when you said last night that you call two hundred you've called at least one hundred Brady Games. And he's probably only call about ten and most of them are super bowls talks had and that and that you know now he's got going to be able to call more Brady Games. I guess you're going to have mahomes games right and the last two. Mvp's are are residing air. And I know you touched upon this last night that the youth movement at the quarterback spot is what. Cbs is going to be bringing to the fore over the next couple years the AFC is Is the cool conference now. You got it with with with Patrick and Lamar and and now you know. I don't want to shortchange this Sean. But Sam Darnold Josh Allen Baker. Mayfield the kids. You're in to get three. The first draft picks six draft picks with To Joe and two and end Justin Herbert. It's it's an exciting time for this converts converts really and we're the AFC network. Your conference is as good as the quality and star power of your quarterback. Now it's not safe the NFC doesn't have it. They got it they got Brady and brees. They got Russell Wilson and they got some other. We got the young guys that are winning the awards and one guy that just won the super bowl Is is part of that and Patrick Mahomes. So I'm feeling really good about where the AFC is going. And what that means as far as matchups and you're right. You're going to be seeing if things if Kansas City keeps doing what it's been doing we're going to be seen. Patrick mahomes with the frequency That we did Tom Brady. But that. What Lamar Jackson and Baltimore? Winning these super bowls in here so you know those those two And some of these others. I rattled off on the list. They get things going. You know that's going to be a heavy part of what our season's going to be for years to come a Jim. I appreciate the call today. on last night so Last night just gets to bring this all full circle should the NFL. And Howard cats and the commissioner take your statement about the Mahomes at Brady game as the official. Cbs preemptory that that is not to be flexed. Should that is that I will protect the game. So there's no chance that will work out. We were the first. We have to protect one game every week. barring injuries gosh forbid. That's not that's not one. We're letting go up. But that was so much fun rich because I just love those guys and and and and I always of fringe lash mentor. I think the to both of us and I've gotten to know Joe so much better in recent years. We've had a lot of fun and support to come together last night. Sheriff some last it was gold and I appreciate you putting us all together at that next year during the during the real show. I'd love it. I love it and again Jim. I just a really appreciate your friendship and you into the show as often as you do and making yourself available and I I'm I'm appreciative and I appreciate it. we'll chatting online anytime you know that. Okay right back to you bet. That's gymnasts taking us into the weekend. So yes the answer and the NFL should take that as an official CBS. You are not flexing not a chance might as well have been the MEME. Okay all right the good wife the good name Madam Secretary all of them together and CIS put them all together Yup blue.

#255 How CEOs Really Use Tech Today
"The following podcast contains explicit language. I'm Christine Lagarde Catherine Senior writer at INC magazine and in Dot Com and you're listening to INC uncensored our podcast about fascinating businesses startups entrepreneurship technology. And anything else on the minds this week of the incredible people who write and edit for Inc joining me today are digital design and data director. Kristen Lens Hi everyone staff writer Kevin Ryan Brian. Hello and making hurting uncensored debut INC DOT COM web producer sophie down. We had INC got under went a major project recently to discover the big trends and hidden secrets of how leaders of some of the country's fastest growing companies and their work forces US technology analogy. How data is shaping company policy? How software is affecting productivity? And how fear influences where they spend their money to that end we asked one hundred fifty. CEO's to be totally transparent about everything from keeping their customers data safe to how to avoid employee burnout over I slack. We have to really fascinating segments coming up later. Won An hacking yourself and another on tech burnout but first Kristin did you help design the CEO survey. Could you tell us some of your favorite findings. I do a lot of our serving and kind of data research here on our INC five thousand CEO. Joe So. I'm pretty close to this group Over the years and there are thinkings and their wise and why not When we approach this survey I remember in a few early early editorial meetings? I was like I think we should probably technically call it How CEOS don't use tack right because there's nobody in their day to day that isn't using tack on some unlevel You know I think a few years ago you would hear a lot in the media. Even as we covered stories here An e magazine that everybody thinks they're a tech company. I think there is starting starting to become kind of a consensus to like. Is everybody a data company. Even if you don't have consumers even if you're not a direct to consumer company you are maybe you're only services company you have you were gathering so much more data On you know people your providers on your supply chain all that type of stuff How do you you how do you store it? How do you use it? How do you analyze it? How do you question it right The world is continually being powered by data but data without context is becoming in a huge thing that we're talking a lot About here at incas well to your point some of the most fascinating questions were. How do you stop acts? How do you take employees? He's hands off of why you know like how do you avoid employees burn out based on checking email too much. So what were your favorite questions. I think some of my favorite questions Because I'm a nerd about this and I really dig done into. It is a lot of the questions around data privacy and data security. Because that's something I'm working on a lot right now and we found that about the top three things that Keep CEO's up at night were having key company and other customer data hacked or stolen The rise of ransomware attacks which kind of fits into that same category it's slightly different And having their key personal data rates we has to kind of very separate questions. Everything around company data And everything around personal data right facebook's data privacy target gets hacked Other you know consumer things get hacked or credit it cards get stolen. So how how. They felt Along those lines and there's there's a lot of contradictions but Not Unsurprisingly so. CEO's often felt felt their data was more private their company data was more private and more secure Than their personal data case in point Faiza. Exactly exactly right news news of the week and so when you really dig down into the survey though we also ask. CEO's if they have a cybersecurity budget are they planning to increase it And Twenty Twenty and the answer was split about forty forty two percent Yes and forty. Two percent no thirteen percent of companies don't don't even have a cybersecurity budget well granted. Let's let's be transparent about who are respondents. Were here they were generally. CEO's in the INC five hundred crack pipe and so these are of the fast growing companies but of all different sizes all different industries. It could be you know a fast growing restaurant entrepeneurship And so some of these folks don't necessarily have the same data privacy concerns were or You know same. Technology Allergy uses Say The big cloud service provider right right usage absolutely but then it really comes down to budget right. Is there a cost benefit to spending the money on on cybersecurity versus if if something were to happen right and you were to get hacked or you were to breach privacy That the cost of that for you and I think Kevin might be speaking to that later which I'm very excited about. What's the cost benefit analysis right to really really investing in it I think a majority of the of the companies that to answer this survey. We're kind of in business. Products and services Advertising and marketing. So even you know to your point. Maybe your company doesn't necessarily need it but but if you're working on a project and that has to be taken in consideration and yet many of these companies did have to calm they'd say said we do comply with regulatory requirements and have to do checks either You know monthly yearly quarterly And that was like a majority of respondents correct. Yeah yeah so it was. You know it was interesting. We'll get down into you. Know the personal personal on kind of how you use it at the office. There's a pretty even split over who uses slack versus who uses Microsoft teams In terms of internal messaging there is a pretty pretty even split around using kind of Google. We know the Google business sweet and stuff like that. A lot of places US It's quick it's easy to get off the ground. It's pretty inexpensive offensive for startups Smaller companies and has a lot of offerings there. And then we're seeing kind of new emergent platforms. We mentioned slack. We mentioned Asana was one on that we saw getting some traction so all these trello was on there. All these different type of companies. That are kind of springing up because of a need for you know a lot of it is again slack. It's not sharing data as a numbers but it is a very quick way to share information across teams across projects in a way that email really never has been able all to air table. Asana all those kind of project management based things especially as all business world's become whether it's more national or more global on your teams are spread across right. How do you share that information quickly and most effectively great? Can we talk about facebook. We can talk about facebook and they say about facebook fuck so facebook. We asked a couple questions around facebook. We asked if any of them actually use it as a platform to sell their product or market their product and we saw a lot of people. It was a lot of people. Don't some people had in the past. But they had seen kind of a huge not really not a return in their marketing dollars for what they were getting back from using the platform form to sell sell goods. Yeah I love this bit of data because I mean it felt like five years ago every small business under the sun was feeling that pressure like be all over over facebook be putting their marketing dollars winning advertising dollars and to be putting employee resources into it and now some of our just saying you know what we've cut that out of our budget. It's not working. Yeah and I think I remember I think it was when I first got here which is almost seven years ago. Oh Heavens we wrote a story about a company. They had no website. They had like you could google them. You could could not find anything except a facebook page directly on favors selling directly from facebook. The company name is doodle. That's it uh-huh ah yes or they they they are. I believe you know if if you're selling if you are selling a product facebook most for most companies can be a very good consumer acquisition Place Platform you know. But if you're not which many of the businesses that we covered writing are not necessarily selling directly to consumers it can be washed well and then. I wonder who like Wally Wally. doodle was getting off the ground. Whether you know enough ecommerce sites that were easy enough again for smaller companies to try and even test the waters and scale effectively so a lot of that is what technology was available when somebody like wally. Wally doodle wanted to to get into that market and see how it went versus what other ECOMMERCE platforms made it. Easy because a lot of our companies right. They can't they can't support you know full on internal E-COMMERCE ECOMMERCE Situation so so that around facebook was really interesting. The other interesting thing around facebook was the more personal stuff right. If if I am a personal user of facebook you know my running groups on their stay in touch with my friends from high school. There was a very large consensus that they there's mistrust of facebook and a mistrust of facebook around the fake news. Discussion and stuff like that. So we gotta misuse of personal data nearly fifty percent respondents spread out of organized hate groups yet but has anybody left facebook. Raise of hands in this in this room. Nobody everybody's on it I would not be on it. I think if my running group are on there I would probably be off Amazon to. Weren't there some weird reactions to Amazon or people moving away from. What was that much smaller so there was a very very small subset of CEO's who used Amazon to Again kind of sell their business or product. Very very small subset of that subset there was growing mistrust in the few respondents who maybe once used Amazon. But don't anymore. That was one of the things that they cited. Yeah absolutely and I love that you left left a few questions just open ended and let people respond anonymously to the survey I just WanNa read one of the. Yeah the response to that. I really liked ached. She just asks kind of open ended. What what else? What else is on your mind in terms of technology and you know some people said hiring qualified technologists or or no? I'm good had one said the biggest problem I have with big tech is that they have too much power. They are controlling. What we see? And they are shaping how society thinks intentionally attention so there we go thank you so much Kristen Lens for for being on today anytime we'll be right back after a quick break which you hire someone to hack into your e mail your phone your company. It sounds like extreme behavior. But it's actually increasingly common for our company to orchestrate this sort of thing against itself Kevin you found some executives who hired hackers packers somewhat recently. Tell tell us about their stories. Yes so according to our survey twenty one percent of the respondents said they have hired an outside firm arm to try to hack into their own company It's the tactic noticed. Penetration testing. The idea is that you hire these companies to do this to find your weaknesses before for the bad guys do so It fairly non-disruptive you kind of higher the cybersecurity firm. Sometimes you don't even tell your employees that you're doing it and they go to work and they from a remote location will over the course of a few days see if they can hack into your system. Get into your email you know break into your website. He tried to steal Customer Information Vendor Information and then they report back to you and tell you what we're finding hopefully. Yeah hopefully they don't run off to Mexico with all their All your money but yes I spoke with a few of the companies who have done this And overwhelmingly they. They looked at it favorably. Eighty seven percent of those who have done on it say it was a worthwhile cost. The price will vary greatly depending on. You know what firm you're using the size of your company but All the companies. I spoke to it. Costs between ten thousand and twenty thousand dollars which which does sound like a lot but keep in mind that in the US last year the average hack cost the company seventy three thousand dollars. And and that's you know and in addition to any kind of reputational damage or damage with customers or vendors etc around it. Exactly right the end another other crazy stat last year There was a report that if a small business was hacked more than fifty percent of the time they folded within six months crazy right so you can't even put a price on how important it is to keep everything secure so a few the companies that I spoke with some of the things that These he's these firms found one was just that they needed to add more layers to their security system. Basically you know if if one part of your system gets hacked this would to prevent the entire company from being hacked so if they get into your cells apartment. They're only in your sales department. They're not into the entire mainframe Another company found that their company was not configured properly on the Amazon web services so they kind of had to go back to Amazon and and work with them and reconfigure everything another company company they actually the. The firm attempted phishing scams on their employees. So this so believe it or not I know they got employees very well trained the CEO is name is Bubba Grimsley Fair Hope Alabama. He was very proud to report that none of his employees. He's fell for the scam. What their company does they act as a guarantor on leases so people who don't have the credit history to sign a lease? They'll help them sign it so they have some very sensitive information. Financial data financial data credit history social security past addresses. So he said they are very well trained in that regard but Yeah a lot of these. The employees of didn't know that they were being tested they would just suddenly get an email that said. Hey there's wrong info on my application It's attached can you take a look and we can switch it out and none of them fell for it. Wow of pretty shocking. Yeah so I guess from company to company will vary of of course how well trained your employees have to be or how well trained. They actually are But this is pretty good test your employees might get a little mad at you if they fall for it. And then that giant blinking light comes up and says felt my my hand but You know in the long term. It's good for the company because it teaches you not just with your employees. But with with your network as a whole where the vulnerabilities are a kind of. Get some fresh eyes on the situation because you have your you might have your own. It team tech team but and a lot of cases. They're the ones who built this whole system so they're kind of looking at it lovingly and delicately and like it's their baby and they might be kind of blind to where the weaknesses are You get that fresh set of eyes on it who's looking at it very objectively. And they'll find things that you might not be able to find one of the companies. Actually to in that regard they a higher two different firms alternate between them every year so that they might pick up on new things that the other. I might have missed last year. What I loved about your story is that it was a totally different Lens on this concept? That's become sort of popular. You know like big companies like Google facebook Microsoft Using like bug bounties. True sure to Say we'll give you a reward if you can find a vulnerability in our APP or the Department of Defense which paid something like three hundred thousand dollars in rewards for discovering covering vulnerabilities. Now these are you said you know in the what tends to hundreds of thousands of dollars of hires maybe not not a huge expense for really small business. Ten to the twenty thousand was the range of the companies that I talked to all small to medium sized companies. But still you know there. These are companies with several million dollars revenue. So it seems like a the cost is lower than a long term. I think one of the coolest things and this is something that it's it's when I talk a lot about data I talk about hard numbers but one thing that all of this is addressing. There's there's there's two different there's kind of two different types of trust right there's non-physical trust which is like if I'm in a relationship I trust you to be kind and generous. And then a a lot of what we're seeing with some of this data and data bridging there's physical trust right as a company owner and as a consumer. I want to know that I can physically trust your technology. e-systems and your infrastructures with my personal information. Before I handed over and we've already handed over so much as consumers How do we start making sure? Turn that a company can actually keep our information saying have build that trust with us. Yeah do you think it's still matters. I mean I feel like with with with the Jeff bezos hacking. For instance. I mean I feel like we all and many. CEO's just feel like well. I live in a post security era. Now you know like I can't rely rely on anything I mean just being I think the example of of that creditor guarantor company. You know if you are googling that company and here that they've been hacked it so easy to find another company. That does the same thing that hasn't gone through that. So you know when we hear that target got breached and credit card numbers out there. You know it's it's big on a scale of how many people it affected but in the end of the day they had one credit card number. But if if you're a company that has sensitive customer information and people can find out very quickly that you've suffered a breach. They're just going to go to somebody else very trail. Thank you so much having heaven. We'll be right back after this break in the age of slack Asana Trello and multitudes of other project management communications tools for companies and of course your classic email. There's a question of when does work actually end and if workers can't ever truly turn off will they burn out we one hundred and fifty executives. We surveyed how they manage their employees connectivity Sophie. What did they say so so I was looking specifically at two of the questions that we asked CEOS in the survey for one. How often do the CEO check your email slack? Your other work related communications outside of regular work hours. Or when you're on vacation and second. Do you expect your employees to do the same. This comes up a lot when people are talking about work life balance and how this culture of being always on can be harmful to your health. Not just your mental health but even your physical health. There's there's no doubt that this is important. I mentioned one study. That concluded that Just knowing that you have to be responsive outside of work hours even even if you're not actually doing it can raise your anxiety levels and also put pressure on your spouse on your family so we wanted. Snow was If any CEO's had put in place specific policies at their companies to govern this with whether that means requiring employees to be reachable. Chewable when they're not at work or on the flip side Insisting that they go entirely off line us we wanted to know what that policy might look like and whether it actually works especially when running a fast growing startup. And you the CEO argument working all the time. So we've out of like kind of counterintuitive kind of interesting. Yeah we had sort of a mixed response so who wants a Yot that I talked to. You had a company wide policy that there could be no meetings early in the morning or in the afternoon or at all on Fridays. Sign me up renting them integrate. So and if you're on vacation you have to set an auto reply message with contact info for someone else who can respond on your behalf. So so when you're offline your offline that of course doesn't work for everyone but he said that has been very effective in helping cut down on some of the workaholic culture of people. Who felt like they they had to be on all the time That was one Perspective another a CEO who. I talked to said that I like maybe a few years ago. He had the wrong idea so when he saw people working at all hours being up all night He wanted to celebrate that he wanted to praise them publicly in town hall meetings but then he realized or somebody gave them this feedback. You said That they weren't being more productive when they were working all the time they were just working themselves today and that was not actually in the interest of the company or of the the employees so instead he shifted to praising the employees who were the most efficient he said who were able to get all their work done and also go home at a reasonable our. He's at a even human at one point. He said a few years ago there was one executive who was getting really burned out and he actually called. It to offer email. It's a shame not stop responding to emails Occasionally you might have to go to great lengths to force people to log off and then the third person person I talked to you said that he had also changed his perspective on this that he had previously had a or tried out a new emails after work policy but ran into some issues with that because there were there would be occasionally. There would be a situation in which people would have to work After regular hours there was some sort of special event or something and that they wouldn't be reachable and then see what's going on. They say. Oh we're not supposed to answer our email so that didn't work out the window. There's a there's a a little subheading and Sophie's story online which will link to but it's as you know that formal rules won't always work and I love that idea that as a boss as a CEO the You can you can implement a policy and it might just ignore it to be like so aware of how people interpret things He's going to your policy. Well see that was what kept coming up was that things are always gonNA come. There's always going to be things you don't expect so really the best thing to do is to just take it as it comes and find what works for your company money. So the upshot is you might not necessarily find that a formal policy works but it's worth thinking how the very least. Yeah I found this fascinating meaning to consider when you look at the answers that some of these. CEO's themselves gave. I think it was almost actually more than half answered in terms of their own technology. Use the after hours. You know they check their work related email after hours they. They said the literally in quotes almost constantly. I often fall asleep with my phone in my six percent. Yeah Yeah so how do you expect that group of people to be making this. The scene balanced policy the tone for everyone. When you're falling asleep the phone in your hand I think one of the trends that we've seen Coming from this data set and just just over kind of probably the last decade I would I would say that. A lot of smaller companies a lot of startups have really started to change workplace culture for even larger companies. Everything that Sophie is talking about here. Like when you're supposed to be online why are supposed to be online. You know even. There's even getting down to like meetings no meetings on Mondays or Fridays. Because if you may if you asked about something on Friday chances are at probably. Hasn't you know changed my money. All those kinds of things I think it was Toward the end of last year Japan and Microsoft even though that's a very large corporation they tested a four day workweek and saw that productivity by forty percent workers but workers still got a five day a week paycheck so there is a huge huge amount of amassing data. About how if you actually treat your employees like human beings and nine times out of ten adults you your company. IN-IN IT affects. Your bottom line will reap the rewards Yeah that's Great News News. I hope that embrace that going. That's okay we'll thank you so much for being here making your think uncensored debut sophie down.
