2021 QB Consensus Rankings: Who Takes the No 1 Spot?

"Jump into our consensus rank. So is what we did here for. Anybody that doesn't understand. Consensus ranking each of awesome rank our quarterbacks from one to thirty two and then we come up with the kind of the average comes up with the consensus. I did thirty three. i'd include sam darnold. Oh okay wow. I'd so our number one quarterback. God mahomes a sexy. Is patrick mahomes. Hattie mahomes no surprises. Mahomes being number one. I think he's pretty much. Everyone's consensus one going into the quarterback position this year except for you. Thanks trial a segue. I have lamar. Jackson has my number one no surprise. Probably based off the trivia. Very lamar related both because of his his rushing upside by yes. Mahomes is not a far distant to put it that way over his last year's starter he finished as qb one in two thousand eighteen. He was cube seven and two thousand nineteen and he missed two and a half games that season and then he was q. Before last year missing a game if mahomes plays all seventeen games. He's a guaranteed top five quarterback with potential. Qb one overall like we've seen in the past and unlike the next four or five guys. He doesn't offer a huge amount of rushing upside. he does offer two to three hundred dollars. but much difference than you know. You're rushing upside type quarterback yeah. He has the highest ceiling of any quarterback. And as safe of a floor is any quarterback. And i think that's a really really important combination to have. It's crazy how consistent. He's been with the fact that he isn't a huge rushing quarterback. He certainly runs more than a lot of other quarterbacks in the league but he does it through the air. He's averaged over twenty four fantasy points per game since entering the league. Which is absolutely incredible. He's got the best weapons in the. Nfl andy. reid is a phenomenal head coach. He is so safe as long as he is healthy. Yeah i agree with that. I just disagree on the part where you said. He has the highest upside. Because i don't think he does. I think lavar does just his rushing and you can project the marta have more passing yards. You can't really project. Mahomes rushmore the only argument against that. I don't think he has the highest potential. Now that we've seen what lamar can

Atlanta Hawks-New York Knicks Series Preview

"Let's get to the four or five nacho. This one is interior. Going to be a lot more entertaining. Probably the one. Eight matchup gets underway. Knicks hawks sunday at seven pm eastern on live from madison square garden. The best place you could ever go to watch a basketball game. The knicks swept the season series. A couple of those games. You know nate. Mcmillan wasn't even the coach so they were earlier in the year but keys to the series before we get to our predictions for nick's hawks. Trade started on this one. Well i think. Julius randle has an opportunity and a strong chance at being the best player in this series. He was incredible against the hawks. During the year in three games he was over thirty points per game to forty point games. He had a game winning tip as well. Clearly i'm tap dancing right now. I'm trying to pull up these splits here. You know you mess around with your tabs so much during a show it just throws the was saying julius randle thirty seven points per game. Twelve rebounds six assists. He had the game winning tip as well. He dominated the hawks this season. There's no doubt about it. They just don't have a great matchup for him though. We'll talk about some things. They're gonna do a little bit later on. I'm sure but i do think randall is going to produce at the very least the question will be. Where do the knicks. Then get all of their other points. They've had some great shooting this season. They got five guys shooting better than forty percent i think. Derrick rose has a chance to have a really good series here but skeets. I was listening to your podcast with l g do set on the. I meant you were talking about guys. Who have tyler hero. Potential somebody to explode in the playoffs who also has a cool factor. Let me offer you. Rj barrett my pick for this season's tyler hero forty percent from three during the season. Hit some big shots late. He was at forty seven from three point line for the last two months of the season. He really heated up. the shot. seems real. And i don't know he seems like a bit of a cool customer after getting called out by anthony edwards gimme rj barrett to be the secondary star for the knicks in this series. Because they've got to figure out a way to get to basically one hundred points

The Top 5 Social Media Apps for Online Fitness Coaches

"Five on my top. Five social media apps for ominous coaches. If you guys run and grow business is is lincoln. Lincoln is number five guys. Want to take some guesses at number four. What's number four if layton's number five. What do you guys think number. Four is the six some guesses on. I'm going to take some guesses in your head. I want you to think about what you think. Number four is right now for social media. Number four for social media for growing on my coaching business is clubhouse clubhouse from me right now's number four and i'll tell you why club osas number four. I think close. Mike climb on my list overtime but the reason that closes number four for me is the potential for growth rate. Now is massive on clothes. I really do think like the potential to grow. Clubhouse is very big. You know speaking up in rooms that are like you know. Big that aren't yours is a really good chance to grow following the downside of clubs from me is like and for those of you guys. That don't know what cobos quickly sixty seven seconds. Summary clubhouse is our as a voice as a live voice app so essentially. It's you can join rooms that people are hosting. And let's say. The room is about entrepreneurship or like weight loss. Or whatever so you joined the room. There's a group of moderators. It can be like one to five to ten different moderators. And then there's people in the audience and the people in the audience can raise their hand. They have something to say and so close. The potential on the app is big. And i do think that it has potential surge over the course of the next two to three months especially wants to gets released to android the downside of clubs from me is that it takes a significant amount of time because even for the chance to speak like if you're hosting your own room that's dope but you're not going to have a lot of followers at first when you you start the app so that's the downside and and so if you want to speak up in a bigger room like you know the bigger room to get a more followers give to sit there and you have to wait your turn and so the downside from me on clubhouse is that like there's a lot of potential claus and it is huge. The downside for me is that it takes a significant amount of

Boston Bruins vs. Buffalo Sabres Highlights

"It three to that's your final 32 Bruins all the moments of the game brought to you by first jewelers. moments in your life go forth to Firth. We'll get our scoreboard check in a moment. But let's bring in Paul Hamilton, now with His thoughts here. Paul. It was there for the taking, and of really bad third period ruined it for him. Yeah, well, the Bruins were ahead for Three minutes and 50 seconds in that game. And that's it. They took the lead for the first time at the 16 10 mark. I hated the goal. I hated the place started with middle statues kind of waving it. It's Smith in the neutral zone is he went by very poor effort there. And I, you know you go into the zone Reaching and preachy Richie and creature outwork everybody. And the sabers air around. You heard Kyle Pole, So say you got five guys, basically where they're supposed to be. But by that time everybody staring at the park. Well, what What if I always talked about for how many years now Awareness And nobody has any clue that Smith jumped in there. So whether you call it bad luck, Bad bounces. Whatever you want to call it. I call it creature working hard in the crease, giving the puck out to Smith. There He is, by himself and everybody. Everybody park watching. And You know that That stuff wasn't happening in the 1st. 40 minutes. I mean, what did we talk about? At the end of the second intermission that You know you got it can't go into the third period and have the hope that Lena saw Mark's going to stand on his head. And get to the game He almost did. I mean, he faced 15 shots in the third period he gave up to go or you know that the two goals But still made 13 say's while the other kids stands at the other end, what does he have to do? He stands there and makes three saves.

The Music of World Showcase in EPCOT

"If i say the music of epcot what's the first song that comes to mind. Probably something from future world and as we covered extensively back on show six nine six ten future world has background scores and attraction and so show themes that not only. I think resonate with us but are enjoyed by us beyond just our time in the parks. They are on our playlists and in our ears when we drive run exercise. I'm obviously like reaching and assuming those last two or whether we're just relaxing at home but why which is my favorite word. And i think it's probably because so. Many of these songs were created by disney for disney they are original themes built around the theme using the time-tested recipe of what makes disney music so memorable but for the other half of the world. Showcase much of the music is not only traditional but helps to set the stage and represents the culture of the participating nation. And these aren't songs. I think that we would normally associate with a theme park experience. Either that is like if we're talking about walt disney world But some of my favorite songs. That dizzy songs are found in many of these background. Loops of not just future world. But some of these world showcase pavilions and they always seem to bring a smile to my face as they hear them. Whenever or wherever i am and i said on the intro to the epcot show that that the music is very much a melting pot of so many cultures ideas ideals technology and different flavors. And it's a place that you can hear music that is as diverse as the pavilions and cultures and speaking of diverse. I want to continue our musical journey from future world to world showcase once again with friends who helped kick off this musical odyssey so i'd like to welcome back to the show. Lisa denote glasner from the castle. Run and core memory candles dot com to be back. Jason connect from here with the magic and the after our show on the facebooks. Hello it's good to be back with you guys and the one and only zac brown from the one and only the zac brown show. Everybody excited to be here. So i am excited for this. And i'm curious to one because i want to see if hopefully we can beat or not break record long. Our future world discussion was. But i think and i'm curious because we don't talk about this ahead of time how this may differ. Because i think again so many of those future world songs and themes are ones that we can mention by name. Papillon came up again. I think exactly you know if it was a drinking game and papillon was your word. You're in some serious trouble but so much of world showcases different because one. We can't pronounce many of the names the songs they don't necessarily roll off the tongue and they're not one that we might necessarily know by name but we know in terms of how they make us feel and they are there are some pavilions that have themes or some that. Just have background music that we enjoy very quickly. When and they'll round in the same order. When you think of world showcase when you think of world showcase music what is the first song idea pavilion. Thought that comes into your mind for me. I remember when we sat down to do or when was sitting down to prep for the future world. Show i joked that. I've never felt so prepared and so unprepared at the same time for a topic because it was like it was a topic. That's just sort of ingrained in my soul but at the same time i didn't know quite how i was going to articulate it and This show said hold by juice because like the rest of disney right is supposed to sort of insulate you from the rest of the world and i think the unique thing about showcases that it has the opposite job. It's supposed to transport you into the rest of the world. And so while you know so much of the music throughout disneyworld otherwise as supposed to sort of encapsulate you and bring you into this place. You know. the imaginary kind of didn't do their job right right if they did. If that's the result of in world showcase because the point of showcases to make you feel like you're not in central florida. It's supposed to make you feel like you're traveling around the world. As you're walking around world showcase so i don't know if i have a quick good answer to like what song first comes to mind. it i mean i could say something. Easy like golden dream of course. Which is you know sure. We'll talk about that more But now i think it's it's like background stuff. Like le vian rose and like the stuff that green and like that. The the the music that i just associate. Because i'm here. So much with walking around world showcase but at the same time you know like you said in the intro. It's not necessarily music that you're supposed to associate with a theme park. Don't you have a green sleeve. The greens leave story to which will have to get to. Because i remembered crossing the bridge an international gateway with you and i said isn't the screen sleeves using it yet and then you told me a story from your childhood is i am. I am right. I mean who doesn't have a green sleeve story like there's a green sleeve story and i want to don't jump ahead of ourselves but that really from my childhood i whistle. Inslee leaves all the time and it makes my mother crazy. Maybe i was just hoping it was from your childhood. Okay i i mean to answer the question. What's the first song pavilion jumps to mind. It's gotta be mexico and it's got to be the three cobb heroes right like that's got to be no actually. It's not that i think. The the for me world showcase had an anthem and no it can't be eliminations but it had an anthem. It would be basically the soundtrack to impress his france. Of course which. I am super excited about francine far away i know he s- t and wonderful. We'll get there For me it's kind of an unfair answer. I think about the international gateway. It's kind of this. Great little collaboration of everything that you're going to experience it's kind of the coming attractions. You know like lisa said you've got le vian rose and you've got a little bit of music piping in from like the china pavilion and everything just kind of blends and it just sets the overall tone and of prepares you for the pallet. That is in front of you whether it be musical or food you kind of preps you and gets you in the mindset that is world showcase and for me you know if i was to close my eyes and just say world showcases a couple of songs that jumped right to the top but one of them and this is actually a great way for us to begin. I think is. There is a world showcase background loop and being disney enthusiasts that you are. I'm pretty sure. It exists on your iphone or ipod your spotify playlist because this is one of the ones that i think people do have an play when their home or even in their cars or when they're working or walking or just relaxing and while you might not necessarily know the names of the songs if you were to listen through it and serbia following along this. This item list of the music yelich like. Yes inca dance by cousteau. That's my favorite song. Although you wouldn't walk into sam goody's not that there's a sam goodies but go with me here. You wouldn't walk in goodies and say i need incan dance on forty five guys have that. But i love the world showcase loop that you can hear on both entrances to where you could. We'll talk about some of the changes that came about relatively recently but those are some of the songs that i hear that like the future world entrance mentally

Connect to 5D Gaia And Infinite Source With Dakota Earth Cloud Walker

"Well can to a nether. Podcast episode of merck kaba charlie russia's i'm your host von goats and today we dive into the healing nature of connecting to five guy or earth through the shamanic meditation and rituals with doug coda earth cloud walker. Now dakota been a teacher for over twenty five years and she brings a wealth of experience in how we all can connect to our planet and each other through shamanism so with that the coda welcomed makovich. Thank you so much for having me here. I really appreciate it and love talking about this stuff so at least you. I love metaphysics too. Yeah it's good stuff and there's so many different ways to come into metaphysics and high alums of consciousness and so many different experiences. You never really get bored so Yeah i love to okay so before we get into this wonderful discussion about the modalities that you bring forth to connect to five the guy and the higher consciousness within the universe. Let's begin with. How did you get into this work in the first place. Now well i would say that the work found me and really when i look back on my life i feel like i have been living the shamanic life ever since i was a kid. Even my parents would comment about that. That it was just that was always my natural way of being was to be more of that chamonix nature so for me. When i got into the work it was Really just kind of an extenuation of what i always knew and felt and then i just found a way to carve it out into my life. I started in my early twenties teaching spiritual studies and things like that and really diving into the world. Native american spirituality and celtic drew injury and just kind of finding my own path but then at the same time. I'm always been the one that you know. I feel very passionate about something. I want to bring it into my work and so became very easy dovetail to make that right right and you know just just for people to understand about shamanism. Shamanism is just kind of generic term. Because there's a lot of shamans all over the world. I'm laos and their shamanism house as well as well as all over the world. Mongolia china south native american The celtics have Their own as well and basically shamanism is just basically a spiritual approach to your connection to that subco- energy field of universal consciousness. Everybody s it. It's just kind of coming into that mysticism about reality and that's really what it is It is connected to any kind of religions there's no buddy to chew etc so In terms of a spiritual approach. It's very very very much. And we have a lot of shaman nissim type outlook in buddhism because buddha again is a spiritual approach that is not unreligious you reality and to connect to that christ consciousness within you and everyone else which is source so right. We're talking the same language years. Yeah yeah there's a lot of misconceptions about shamanism because they feel like it's it's primarily native american or that it's a religion you know. Some people feel very dark energy and really. It's it's it's very very light and it's more like a container that contains the soul of the person who is deciding to walk that path. In whatever capacity that you show up in

"So let's for the listeners breakdown. Really kind of what options are out there from a ownership verse renting perspective. Obviously there's flight. Schools like united flight systems here in houston that provide rental of high quality aircraft with good avionics that You get to pick and choose from their handling the maintenance. They're they're caught. They've got some fleet insurance for doing some things. That's the rental route The next step up for that normally talk about. It's really the club option right. So right i am one of. Let's call it thirty to forty people that are paying monthly dues. Probably some sort of a small by into the club. That clubs probably In some way or another talking about adding aircraft improving or upgrading aircraft. There's there's probably a board or small group that's leading that that group. There's only a waiting list. Those are those are pretty Interesting groups of people all probably fairly similar who fly a little bit the give the benefits. They're probably less minimums if you want to take it on a long trip probably as a club member you get one long trip a year. Don't have to pay minimums etc. Someone's maintaining it or helping maintain it probably the the board of that group and you have access to the hangar in the aircraft. Probably when you want or the clubs have a problem and lose memberships and they'll have to figure that out right but You don't necessarily own it but you probably are a member owner of that club. They're all structured many different ways. Right right then they have the partnership like you talked about some group some smaller group one two three four five guys or girls have a similar desire. I see it on facebook often. Hey i'm looking to get into a three way partnership on turkey. Six any other to people out there interested That happens so normally there's a site set on type of aircraft normally performance matrix. Hey i want to people for cirrus something like that right so then you're really a one third partner in an aircraft normally an llc of some sort that You and tour to something. Sometimes for up to four other people are partners on that aircraft. And then you have to be like minded like you said. The philosophy in the financial components are very very big. You don't want well. I would say i wouldn't want to be in a partnership like that with someone who was so frugal. So cheap that if our front-seat started getting more out they they would not want participate one. Whatever their portion was to get that seat recovered right. Let to me. If

2021 Lottery NBA Mock Draft

"Tony. And i are going to do our first lottery. Mock draft of the year today. We're going to go back and forth. Selecting picks to put a draft order together. Midseason is really difficult. Especially if you've looked at the standings anytime lately and seen how bunch together so many of these teams are so i went to espn's basketball power index That list teams projected records to the season through a number of statistical factors. I think it's it's probably a better look. At where teams are going to be at the end of the season then necessarily their records right now and then based off of that we put together a draft order that obviously is going to change and obviously will be affected by the nba draft lottery where the top top three teams each have a fourteen percent chance of getting the top pick and so on as you know how the draft lottery works and so doing a mock draft. This time of season tough until really until the draft lotteries over. We don't really know the order but but we have some guesses now based off of where teams what teams have played. And what's going on right now and we're going to do our best to give you a are mock draft For the twenty twenty one season. First one we're just gonna cover the lottery and we're going to let tony how the first pick in the draft and based off of that. Espn bpi has the minnesota timberwolves projected to have the worst record in the league. Which is actually pretty good news for minnesota timberwolves fans because the timber wolves have to trade pick to the golden state warriors if this is pick four thirty and so the only way minnesota keeps this pick is if they fall into top three right now. If the season were tomorrow they'd have about a forty point. Seven percent chance of keeping this year's draft pick a falling the top three in the draft. So this is no guarantee from minnesota that they'll have the number one pick they all said the number one pick last year. Tony you're on the board. Who do you select if you're the timber. Wolves with the number one. Pick in the twenty twenty one nba draft. I select the I will not need three minutes to make the selection I'm selecting k. Cunningham six hundred seventy one hundred twenty point guard out of oklahoma state and so when you When you make your draft selections you do to you draft for two things you draft For value and you draft for need and this is both in pick antibi- you pick for for for the minnesota timberwolves number one. K cunningham is the best player draft You know. I think the gap is actually close Because you know. I think jonathan coachman gain in jalen green. You know both of those guys you look at them and they have some real special tools But that being said you know k. Cunningham is is still am. I is the most shore Most short superstar player in his draft. In and i think that's a compliment to how good distract is going to be especially in the top five But you know cunningham can score at all three levels. No he's sick. He's all seven all twenty. He's he's a natural point guard You know if you're minnesota you're trying to trace the ngelo russell Like as soon as possible In you know you put k. cunningham in the backcourt with anthony edwards who i think both of us can safely say it's better than we thought he would And i think that. That's obviously a backward for the future for the minnesota timberwolves in a really nice triumvirate with karl anthony towns so Definitely you know we all rights won't always talk about. We need some some of these number. One picks the go out east but you get the number one pick in another kind of generational prospect that comes to the western conference. I'm totaling till the agreement with you. Tony i think look. I don't think. I think there's five guys that can make a claim to the number one pick in this draft and so it's not like cunningham is a lock here but because of that i would put all of these players in the same tier and then when you look at what minnesota actually needs on their basketball team. Right now i think cunningham is just the right fit for this team as well and i i see him as a really nice compliment to karl anthony towns and to ant man right now and i think that this is this will be a huge boon for minnesota. If they get this pick and you know look everybody in minnesota has got gotta be crossing their fingers at this point Like you said if they fall out of the top three golden state gets this pick. And i think golden state already one that andrew wiggins dangelo russell trade as it is but if they end up getting you know the fourth or fifth pick in the draft does as as well. It's going to be an absolute massacre on that trade.

Best Positions for the Cowboy's Free Agents in 2021 Season Draft

"Let's talk Cowboys on today's episode. I was talking about free agency. And and this is now the time of year to be talking for you to see if we're not talking about Dak Prescott and let me ask you if you could only because it's the Cowboys here and we're not going to get greedy. If you could only sign one position in free agency. What position would that be? Before so we're assuming that co-signed here or do I have to yes. Yes. Okay. So if I'm if I'm kind of like sweeping generalities one position, it's probably a cornerback. That's that's where I'm going. And I think that's where there's the the largest amount of options especially with the fact that both Judo and Jordan Lewis are departing and free agency. I think that's where the most shallow at the moment. I don't think there's like a safety that that makes you know, it makes me want to make a bagel. You know what I mean right now, like there's not that guy in this year's free-agency. So I'd probably go corner. What's yours free safety because there is that Gap there's lots of those guys. There's good depth of pool at free safety here with I mean Marcus May and John Johnson Marcus Williams, I mean Justin Simmons is my guy but I don't sure first of all he's going to he's going to make money and second of all he's probably not going to leave the Broncos, but I think there's four or five guys right now. 24 to 27 years old high high level free safeties that are probably gonna hit the market and that's that's without. You know, some of these other guys have the market inevitably because of Captain D's because the Caps going down but I'm not Corner would be second for me. I just think if there's one position to splurge and it's free safety cuz I like Trevon Diggs. I liked the Cowboys going heavy draft capital a first round pick in the corner position. So I think you can invest in in corner line back or defensive line offensive line in in the draft one position. I'm prioritizing it for you to be fifty. But I also like I wouldn't be mad if it was Corner either. Yeah.

"five guy" Discussed on ESPN Chicago 1000 - WMVP

"It's very much part of our lives. There will be a five man taxi squad throughout the season. Taxi squad is is I understand it. Five guys. Wall drive taxis. Five guys who are are just kind of there. There on the roster, but not they could be activated, but they're not counted against the 26 man. They're not playing minor league baseball either. So the question of who constitutes this 26 others? Five men? Taxi roster is kind of an interesting one, right? Especially when it comes to the catching situation for the White Sox. I was just kind of doodling out the 26th man 26 Men roster for the White Sox. And as I'm thinking about it in my head, this is in no ways official, right? I mean, it's there were still two weeks away from spring training, even started injuries. They're gonna happen. Things were gonna pop up dead arm phases will occur. All that kind of stuff. Right? You go through the starters, and you figure there's six there, right? Lucas Lin Chi Kel cease rode on and Reynaldo Lopez will likely battle things out for the five spot And I would imagine that Whichever one loses. Probably has a spot is the long man or in the bullpen or something like that. I don't Just me. I don't really see either one of those guys assuming, you know a relative and base level amount of competition and talent that they get there, they'll stay on the major league roster. You got five relievers who are absolutely and Hendrix bomber Foster Hoyer Marshall, then some combination of like three of Jace Fry, Zach Birdie, Jimmy Cordero, Garrick Rochet, Baby, Maybe somebody else who pops up Becomes interesting in spring training, then you've got the catch response. Gas money grand off. Zach Collins. Shot isn't Lucroy all kind of in that mix. And as you start to look okay, Both. Andrew von makes the team out of spring training. Dwight, do you want to can carry three catchers? If you want to carry five outfielders.

2021 NBA Draft Big Board

"Time to do some updates on the big board and like i said before these big boards are based off a consensus at the end of the day between nba scouts. General managers. that. I'm talking to right now about where they have. These guys ranked them not ranking them. According to team needs this is not a mock draft and for the most part those nba scouts and general managers win the day. If i disagree with them but everybody has a guy higher than me then. He goes higher If there's a tie sometimes then you know. I may come in and put my finger on the scales but what i'm trying to do here is report. What i think is the general consensus from nba teams. And i want to start with the top five because these top five right now. I will do my tears column towards the end of the draft right before the draft happens usually about a week or two before the draft. But if i were to do it today i would say that. There's as many as five guys who are looking like tier one guys if you remember from last draft when i did my tears column. I personally didn't have any guys in tier one talking to nba teams and be scouts. While there was guys that got votes for tier one. Like lamelo ball. Anthony edwards james wiseman ultimately none of them got the fifty percent threshold to move into tier one. If i if i were betting man right now and for that particular survey to a pretty wide swath of nba teams and general managers and scouts. I'm thinking that there might be as many as five tier one prospects in this draft right now. So we'll start at the top. He was number one a big board. One point oh he stays number one here in big bore two point okayed cunningham. The point forward freshman out of oklahoma state. Who who's been really everything that he was advertised to be as the one of the most complete players in the draft who plays one of the most important positions in the draft wing. He's averaging eighteen points a game six rebounds a game nearly four assists the game one and a half steals a game. He shooting thirty nine percent from three. Which i think was definitely one of the swing skills for kate cunningham. That teams had coming in. How well of an outside shooter is he going to be and so far. The numbers look really good on that end. If there's an issue with kate cunningham right now and i think it's an interesting one. It's that he has not been a particularly careful with the ball. He's averaging three and a half turnovers a game which is which is pretty high and he has a lot in this oklahoma state offense. They rely heavily on him which means at times. He's forcing things. But that's the one red flag. If i'm looking at you know just sort of overall the numbers and what's going on where the red flag might be. It's that again. Three point five turnovers jumps to about three point eight in this per thirty six. And that's the one that i would that i would be careful about watching because his reputation coming in was that this is one of the steadiest playmakers that you're going to find his ability to see the game to be afford leader very high and that assist to turnover ratio is really the only major war that i can really see on statistical profile right now and again. I think you have to caveat that some by the fact that you look at the team that he's playing on and how teams can really game plan for him every night that there are reasons why i think that cunningham might not have the highest assist to turnover ratio at least one that we would expect.

"I mean, they need all five guys out here running around playing as hard as possible, getting multiple stops. And as long as that, Harvey continues the knock down some perimeter shots like that. Bear. Cats can find themselves worked right back in this game the next three minutes here. Over the last 10 minutes. They've been outscored 28 to 15 LA today has to do with the live ball turnovers. Where Wichita State were able to get a lot of points in transition here, but they got to do a better job and get back to what That's how they started this game, keeping the ball in her chest, not allowing Wichita State to get downhill and create havoc from there. Points off turnovers 26 to 5. In Wichita State's favor. That right? There might have been the name but the detail of tales for for the bear Cats today, full court pressure by the bear cats Wichita State looking to throw it into the backcourt inbounded toe Ettien being chased by Micah Adam's Woods now fires a long pass caught in the front court. They feed it under the basket. Four days A and his reverse lay up is up and in 14 form or a school days, a doubling his scoring average 71 57 Julius, Driving to the rim puts up a shot in traffic couldn't get it to go. But a foul is called On the shockers. Guys. They called for his third. Like the drive back to juvie facility. The clock stopped here, but the bear God's got to do a better job defensively. I know they want to press and try to get steals here. But it doesn't do you any just to give up easy layups as well. First free throw up and in for David Julius. Scored eight points in the game, dished out six assists. Also tied for the team lead in rebounding with six second free throw Good. 71 59 Wichita State, 3 16 to go Extra Dennis 43, No good, but an offensive rebound for Dez A. So you get Wichita State to take a quick three Exactly what you hoped for, and then you can't get the defensive rebound. Frustrating. I'm sure for John Brandon. Gilbert Driving into the paint stripped by Harvey. Loose Ball goes to Keith Williams drives throws it ahead for decent lay up is no good, but the followed dunked in by Keith Williams, Cincinnati Down by 10. Wichita State has it? No. Look feed for Dez A and he dunks it in. Great pass by at an engineer right there. But Barrett has got to continue to get these drives and get found, like Keith Williams did it. Keith gets fouled in the paint, he'll go to the line for a pair.

The Winners and Losers of ESPN's Top 100 NBA Player Rankings

"Loves lists are fun to debate ESPN came out with one of theirs loves to hate lists, but go on they love to hate him. Yes why I used to hate him cuz you're usually very wrong or cuz everyone's got their own lists. Like everyone had the same listed will be everyone hates. Everyone hates lists yet. They love them because you can debate them endlessly and ESPN sent out. Its top 100 list up until Player 11 and Jayson Tatum is the last one on the list. So he didn't crack the top ten. Well up to 11 is quite an accomplishment for him. Kemba Walker all the way down to 48 Marcus Smart jumps from 87 years. Thirty-seven on this list Jaylen Brown goes up from 51 to 32 Jayson Tatum. Also a big leap up to 11:00 and again lists our lists and we're not holding this as holy gospel, but we still am kind of talk about it because it is interesting and they're fun to debate our friend Gordon Hayward comes in at 44. So Marcus Smart is better than Gordon Hayward apparently in ESPN's eyes who is slightly better than Kemba Walker who's been slightly diminished because of his knees and his uncertainty. So we'll see what's happening there. But guys your initial thoughts on this list. Mine is obviously smart way too high and Jaylen be a little bit low. Yeah, and if you compare to last year, you know, I was top-heavy with the town in terms of your percentage of the League's top twenty five guys. I did a top-25 myself. I did my own last game of the regular season last year and I had four Celtics in the top thirty. So that's different. Now, you know kind of takes a dip shocking it takes a dip with the or something off the top 20. I almost addicted when when John was talking about how much he hates list because I'm kind of with him on that but nothing nothing. Nobody list that I hate more is a preseason list and then Bob to say that you have a post like what NBA Finals list, that's probably the second worst one between capital mean anything it was between the regular season and the playoffs and you're right the list off completely by the end of the postseason that you took time. Okay. Hey out of your life. Hey, we gotta check the content here. How long a couple of months? No, you suck. Changes it rapidly after the whole Jimmy Butler situation that we saw in the playoffs and I think that's an interesting thing about this list to definitely considering playoff runs quite a bit. I mean Jamal Murray gets into the top twenty thousand that's playoff performance right there. You talk about some of the other guys biggest surprise Zion nineteen like the Scion hype continues. What was he played Thirty games? Does Chicago Fire? Wow, I don't think there's eighteen guys in the league. I want in front of him. I'll tell you that if it's know what they'll list is it's not that they do these jobs. It does project. It does project out a little bit in terms of you know, kind of entering the season. So I think the 30 games you played is less of an issue. I do again want to talk about the Celtics here. All right, you know one by one cuz again, it doesn't matter where they are on a list but relative to their expectations for the year. It is important. Okay, because yep need if Marcus Smart is a is the is a tough 37 player in the NBA then that's a that's a trio that you can feel pretty good about I debate whether that's actually true I don't understand how long this went from 80s again it's a list we know it's not possible but how does from 87 to 37 in a year when it's offensive metrics went down in terms of efficiency his three-point shooting got worse his to point his overall field goal percentage was 34 I mean he was not again we know he can distribute we know how to feed other things offensively to make up for that but this is a guy who you are now you're now we are now asking a 34% field-goal shooter to shoot more and that's important to the team's success issue that worries me a little bit yeah I mean that's the part of the lift that thing is out the most right obviously because the market smart and there's two reasons one because of what we saw in the postseason he didn't have a great postseason his special In the Eastern Conference Finals, so that stands out to you as okay. Well, how did he get high on this list? The reason I think it got high on this list because just like everyone else is saying and what we've been talking about you don't take on a big role because of Kevin Walker Because of You Know the Way Gordon Hayward let and now this is huge void. He's going to take up a huge step in and I think he is p.m. Which of course this is why I hate these preseason the list because they're they're either getting wait till end of themselves down sizing, you know, it's either one of the other and with this one. I think they maybe just saying that they may be value mean Marcus Smart a little more than we do. I guess I guess the best way to put it I don't know. I don't think I would put them that off the list but I see why they did that because they know that his responsibility is going to expand ridiculously the next couple of months,

"So, most of the biggest restaurant chains started in small places McDonald's was born in San Bernardino California Domino's in Epsilon t Michigan Sonic Shawnee Oklahoma Arby's Boardman Ohio. There are a number of reasons why this is the case there's usually less competition. The rent is lower, and if white you're offering is new or different people will stand in line for it as they did at the original boardwalk fries in ocean city Maryland which is now a franchise company with more than one hundred locations nationwide they stood in line the chicken. Salad Chicken Auburn Alabama up which now has one hundred forty stores same with five guys in Arlington, Virginia and empire of more than fifteen hundred locations today, and as you will hear in the mid nineteen, ninety s people came from far and wide for some of the best pit barbecue they ever had and it wasn't in Texas Hill country or eastern North, Carolina. But rather in Hayward Wisconsin town of twenty three, hundred people in the northern reaches of the United States where in January he can get down to minus seventeen degrees. This is where Dave Anderson, after years of trying out different business ideas decided to open famous Dave's barbecue in nineteen, ninety four. Today famous Dave's has about one hundred and twenty five locations nationwide making it one of the largest barbecue chains in the country. But the story of Dave's is also a story of how a simple passion for serving smoked ribs chicken and brisket Kim grow too big and too fast and how a founder of can almost lose complete control of a good idea. Dave Anderson grew up in a working class family in Chicago in the nineteen fifties and sixties both his parents were native Americans who grew up on reservations in different parts of the country. My Dad's a full blood choctaw Indian from idol. Homa and if you were to look at a map, of Oklahoma, you'd see that I had a bell is in the southeast corner of Oklahoma, which is way down south, and then my mom is from the Likud array reservation wishes way up north she's. A member of the Likud Ray Lake Superior Band of Ojibway says she grew up in Wisconsin he grew up in Oklahoma and how did they meet both of my parents? I think is the unfortunate part of my story where taken by the Bureau of Indian affairs away from their families and stuck an Indian boarding schools basically making orphans out of them now fortunately for me, though my parents met at Haskell Institute, for Indians, Lawrence Kansas so both just to clarify. So both your parents grew up on Indian reservations they met at a boarding school that I guess was where Indian kids from across the country were brought to I. Don't know. Basically to mainstream because my dad when he was brought into a boarding school didn't speak English. She was A choctaw speaking Indian and When he got put into these boarding schools, he can remember. Being beat in having this mouthwash dot with soap and tell e would forget his language and only speak English didn't happen Abraham Lincoln's Day or George Washington's Day. But this generation my parents I think that's a story that sometimes people in America never here. No, they don't what did your dad do for a living when you were a kid? My Dad was electricity and My mom was a secretary she worked as a secretary. So I was like a lot of kids that lived in a working class neighborhood and we didn't have a lot but we always had food on the table I think growing up though I always knew that my family was different because when all the other kids are going out for pizza and hotdogs especially. In Chicago being a great pizza town. Chicago hotdogs, my dad would load us up into the family car and we're headed down to south side of Chicago. For rips and growing up I. Knew every black owned barbecue joint in Chicago and I can remember as early as nineteen fifty-nine, nine eating rip tips at Limbs Barbecue and fifty nine hundred state street. Yeah I mean Chicago became obviously hugely important. As Barbecue. Capital because of the great migration. So many African Americans who migrated out of the Jim Crow South moved to Chicago and brought them their culinary traditions you the also brought blues, what a great combination in.

Type of bread almost like tamales wrapped up and corn us, and then my mom would always take fishing up north and we would harvest wild rice and but more importantly to raise money for the family. My parents would have a Indian.

Jon Grudens Raiders and Tom Bradys Bucs: A Special Relationship

"Paul duty as I have a question for you where are you right now? I am in an RV at an RV park in Las Vegas and barring my mom and dad's RV while I'm here covering the now Las Vegas Raiders Paul Gutierrez not only covers the raiders for ESPN. He's written a book about Raiders Fandom and followed the team Vegas kind of living like. A little bit. Paul I of about fifty fall of questions about what life in that our views like. But it does feel like the ability to pick up and react to sudden schedule changes is especially important to covering the raiders these days starting with what's happening right now, we are talking on Thursday evening ahead of this highly anticipated raiders game, and there is a Kovic scenario that you've been covering in depth so. What do we know about the game schedule? What do we know about who's playing or who is not playing? Basically, what has happened is is right tackle. Trent Brown tested positive for covert. Now as part of the protocols here anybody who's deemed a high risk contact with him has to self isolate for at least five days plus one which would be the. Last point of contact, which was practice on Monday they are all there. They were all there together It's the raiders entire starting offensive line, plus let's just throw safety Jonathan Abram in there as well. So man, all of those guys were just placed on the covid nineteen list again doesn't mean any of them tested positive. I was actually told that none of them. But as part of the protocols they have to selfies late for five days. Another other source told me that they've been doing virtual preparation. In case they can indeed get cleared play against the buccaneers in the meanwhile, it was supposed to be a big Sunday night football game. Yes. The League wanted to make sure that that game actually happens. So they bumped the raiders out of their move Seattle in Arizona into that spot. So a game will happen well, guess what if you guys I just mentioned you consistently Test negative on their Cova test the rest of the week and then again Sunday. Morning will then they'll be cleared to play. But at what time? Sunday morning Oh. Yeah. kickoffs at one o'clock. So the backstory all that as well. I gotTA catch my breath here when I started figure this out understandably. Yeah. They on their fifty three man roster. They currently have five backup offensive lineman. That's WHO's been trodden. They've been trying out there in practice every day. That's who Derek Carr has been had protecting him. That's who Josh Jacobs has been trying to run holes through those five guys plus they also have two guys on the practice squad that they could suit up if need be. So as we sit here right now on on Thursday late afternoon the raiders starting offensive line is anchored by Andre James and if you need to know who that is I got a couple of media guides for you can look about. Paul Creek me. If I'm wrong here, but I believe this is the very first case of an entire position group being taken down by cove like I know that we've had players here and there. You put on this list but in terms of the magnitude of what the raiders are facing with the offensive line, this feels extreme. Yeah. An and it's part of the protocol. Really. Because only one guy really has tested positive but it's out of the abundance of caution which we've heard a lot of since since the pandemic hit right you've got to self isolate you gotta make sure you don't test positive or show any symptoms, and even if you don't show any symptoms, still self isolate because you could be symptomatic. It's just very bizarre. It's a strange world we're living in Derek Carr said this week that you know he's been with the team for seven years seen a lot of weird things. He's this is the weirdest thing he's ever seen and it's worth noting like weird is by no means foreign to this organization even within this context I mean, I still need help Paul disentangling what exactly happened for instance with Jon Gruden their head coach who took an approach to corona virus with the team earlier this year that had me confused the media confused, and then ultimately Jon Gruden himself pretty angry at everybody. Yeah. So beginning at Camp, we show up in a media member. We have to test every day just to get in I have fifty two on my belt. All negative so far, which is a good thing Jon gruden passes out t shirts to the media with there waiting for us as we walk in the media room that say crush the virus because I was going to be his mantra he took issue with the NFL network reporting that he faked having the virus but yet kind of just went away then on the home opener on. Monday night football when he later would get fine for not wearing his mask properly, he brings it up himself and says that he never faked the virus it as a matter of fact, he did have it. So he talked about just how it was not fun. It made him feel bad and this is all before training camp. When he said he he went through this and beat it in in that. He has the utmost respect for it and he still wants to crush it in beat it into the ground like it was some sort of opponent.

Fourteen hundred to eight hundred but it does pass second time around. Margin also voters in Lansing Berg. They approved a revised school budget. This just has a property tax hike of about a half a percent, LT's grill in niskayuna. You've been there before a quite a long time ago, but I guess there's a show on the food network called restaurant impossible, where they go to troubled, quote, unquote restaurants. And this guy Robert Irvine makes over the restaurant in two days on a budget of ten grand, and hopefully gives it new life, and they have so-called troubled restaurants, applying for this, and I, sadly, I guess, LT's qualified as trouble the restaurant, July tenth and eleventh, they will be filming at the location. Listen I've been there a bunch of times trivia, it's right next to the high school in this Yuna, they should be doing a better business than the are there aren't a whole lot of restaurants with bars and things you can go to ski, you know, I mean other than Commons and nothing has revived there either they ruby Tuesdays that went out at tilted kilt that one out. There's like Pinera. Five guys that's about all it's lunch. There aren't a lot. So you would think that a place that serves you know, some burger beer or glass of wine or something would do very well centrally located, but it, it, it didn't they need some serious help. So, yeah, so sadly, they've said, well, these struggling enough to qualify to be on the show, and so they're going to they're asking for volunteers, but not like you were me to stay. They want electrocutions and legitimate contractors to volunteer their services, July, tenth and eleventh, so in and find that so outrageous. This was first reported by Steve Barnes who does the excellent table hopping blog on the times union in the time. And he was a little bit of shape. He's saying, hey, the food network makes one point two billion dollars year. Why should contractors hardworking types have to quote donate donate to this rich entity? And by the way, maybe some federal laws and you and I are thinking, well, first of all the food network has the legal east taken care of. And if you don't you don't have the volunteer to do the work they're saying if you want, hey, if you wanna volunteer volunteer, we'd love to have you, and I'm sure you'll get some kind of credit at the end, it's great advertising for people are gonna watch it. Locally. That's great. I'll give them some business. I see the show. I don't watch her anymore because every shows exactly the same, but bar rescue this is like this is like bar rescue, at a restaurant. I can see they just just sounds like a direct rip off this guy John tamper, so-called expert goes into trouble bars and comes in, you know, yells at people and then, like a two or three days, redesigns it and retrain staff, and all that changes the menus and and but in those things they do a lot of product placement as well as mentioned at the end. And so, I think the contractors if they volunteer they'll get paid back in some fashion. It's very similar to the hotel hell that Ramsey's to do something similar. It's really just an effort to kind of give them a new opportunity to fresh things up a little bit, maybe drawing some more clients, and maybe they'll get a boost and business can't hurt, especially, you know, a local place like that. Just quick mentioned. There's been a lot of comings and goings it seems anyway at cross gates. And now there's another coming cross gates mall. They're going to this was announced a while back, but it is finally ready to open. I guess there's a Connecticut based chain. This is against Barnes times, union Maggie, MC flies. Local craft eatery in bars up next Wednesday, bewilderingly large menu one hundred eighty items and they also have like seventy five beers on Tampa as you've mentioned there. They do use a lot of local product. There are chain. They, they know what works for them. And they can still be the can still Bill themselves. They local craft eatery embar by using local products. I think it's a great opportunity for local producers and for the time being we can still use plastic straws in the city of. They've table, a measure, that would get rid of the plastics. Paper straws are nasty. They really disgusting. I understand the whole point of using a paper product rather than a plastic product breaks down easier and faster in the environment. But what do you put a paper products in water or moisture is going to break down almost immediately trying to drink a straw, something of a product that paper star is one of a paper spoon for your spoon for your soup?

"App. Hey, thanks so much for sticking around. Because it's time now for how you built that. And today, we're updating story. We I ran about a year ago and just a quick warning. If you're a parent of small children, you are about to hear about poop and barf because those two things are at the very heart of Hannah England's business she has two small children of her own. And if you've ever wondered what happens inside one of those family changing rooms well walked into the bathroom, and there were two moms one was at the changing station and her baby had just had a blow out like major like up the back all the way to the neck kind of thing. And this is gonna be situation that every mom gets themselves into and by the way, every dad I mean, I've been there. And here's the thing. Once you've cleaned up your kid. What are you supposed to do? With all those soiled and disgusting clothes, especially when you're not at home. You know, you kinda just cringe when you have to stick that in your diaper bag. And then when you have to open it after a full day. I mean, it is not pleasant not to mention after the clothes have festered. In your diaper bag for a day. It may become impossible to get the stains out of them. Anyway, all of the Scott Hanna thinking, I came up with this idea when I was putting my three year old to bed, and I came out to the living room. And I just started describing to my sister in law, and my husband this bag the soaking bag, and I kept filling in the blanks. What if we could? And what if it had this? And then they looked at me, and they're like, well, it sounds like you just invented it. And what Hannah envision was a watertight lasted bag that you could keep in your diaper bag. It would have a soap pot in the pod that goes into your dishwasher. So that when your kid pooped or barf doll. For her clothes. You would just throw it in the bag had water. And while the clothes would soak in soapy water while you went about your day. And then I kinda just hit the ground running because I thought I need this in my life. So about two years ago. Hannah started calling manufacturers they sent her prototypes of the plastic bags and she and her husband began to test them. We'd immediately fill it with water and feel it and hang upside down in our living room and kitchen to look for drips and leaks because we want these things to be able to hold up in a mom's diaper bag and that's going to combat but in those early days. Nothing works the bags of break or the zippers come undone and water would get everywhere. So panicked kept calling around until she found one manufacturer in Wisconsin. Who seemed to know exactly what she needed, and he goes, well, I think we're going with the steel that's. Actually, really aggressive for your utility. And I said exactly wanted to be aggressive a seal so aggressive that you would have to use scissors to get it open, and then Hanif out another manufacturer to make a very gentle soap pot and finally she designed the outside of the bags with classy, black and white stripes. One of the design itself to not scream like, okay? This is a bag for soiled poop, she then launched a Kickstarter campaign to raise about twelve thousand dollars and for a while it looked like she wasn't gonna make her goal. But then kind of an amazing thing happened the accounting software company. Quickbooks found out about her QuickBooks has this program where its support small businesses. And so someone from put book center message via Kickstarter that basically says, hey, we're going to back you for the rest of the way, it just showed up on our Kickstarter things and my husband, of course, with going. Nope. This is some weird fraud bang. And I laughed at him. And I'm like what kind of fraud put money into your Bank account. Normally, they'd take money out had. I was right.

"five guy" Discussed on How I Built This

"States. I mean, your burgers were still a lot more expensive than McDonald's. Burger absolutely. And it took a long long lot longer to get a burger there. Right. Like, it's not instant. It's not snow. It takes longer to get a burger. So I mean, the business model is different. So were you worried did you ever think? You know, maybe this works in northern Virginia. But I'm not sure this is gonna work somewhere else. Absolute scared to heck out of us. You were talking about the long, wait. We used to have a sign at one of our stores that said if you're an hurry. There are a lot of really good burger places near here. And everybody's got you can't put that sign up and it helped. Yeah. I remember the first franchise store we opened up was in Richmond. And I said, oh my God. Richmond. Nobody's gonna who. We are in Richmond. I couldn't sleep tonight before Richmond. That's like down the road ninety miles. It's nothing. But but I couldn't even sleep. I said nobody's going to who we are ritsma's Dover successful. And then they said well now, we're going go to North Carolina happens. I'll no way knows that we are down there. And I said no way we're going to Florida because people will never buy that product in Florida because they're older people and Florida's are got one hundred stores in Florida on the idea of going from five stores in two thousand to two thousands of stores within a year or two years. We didn't go to thousands of stores we sold franchise's. Those are still being built out in the United States. We've got about fourteen hundred of them built our now, but all the territory in the United States is gone. Was that just mind boggling? Mind boggling mind boggling, and I was so proud of my kids that didn't go to their head. They're still my kids. Worked just like they used to they work hard every day. What what is it? I mean, what's it like to work with your five sons and in your wife? I mean, they're all involved in the coming to what they do as different thing for the company while I have one son that just loves doing stuff in the stores, like make sure they're painted, right? And decorated right, and he's really into that. So that's his job. That's what's what he does. Mostly. And I got another one fanatic about the food. And and so he goes around the world putting on shows how to cook things, right and stuff, and I got another son. He's really into the financing part of it. He grabbed it and I'm glad because I don't understand a lot of especially international finance. Everybody's kind of found their own little net. And my grandkids four grandkids working to business. They all something like teaching some like working in the field and one of them just loves taking care of making sure there's no food borne illness. She's just fanatic she loves to. And I let them find what they wanna find the cap that can't be filled by them. Then we'll hire somebody is your family still the primary owner of the company. Yes, we own about seventy five percent of the company me and my family, but we took in a fairly big investor. When I started franchising, they don't interfere in our business at all. They gave us a big chunk of money. There enterpreneurs too. And they saw something and find guys what percentage of the actual restaurants. Do you guys own? Does it does out of out of about fourteen fifteen hundred restaurants? We. Wherever joint venture in Great Britain, and France and Germany where we own with our partner half that's about sixty stores and then over here we own about four hundred fifty out of the fourteen hundred how many countries total is five days in now. We're in Great Britain, which I guess is still one country for now the UK and we've got sixty stores there. We're doing France. We just opened up a say got to storm Madrid we got several stores in the Middle East. So I think a lot of people when they get a little bit successful. They look back and trying to figure out how they did it. I can't figure it out. You know? Do you think a lot of it was like, oh my God. Yeah. Two things. I give a lot of credit to Bama, great believer. And and intuition or a higher power or God. Or whatever you wanna call. It. A great believer in listening to my hunches, and I could've done the my own. That's for sure my kids. I'm I'm luckier. And heck, I got my kids in my wife because it seems like to me without them waited on nothing. But. We were lucky real lucky real real lucky to you. I mean, really your vision was not to open up a burger joint. Your vision was to get your kids to live with you. When you and your wife, divorced, right, which that was your I guess that was your real success. Getting your kids, you think so. You think so? Yeah. The best things ever had in my life is my kids. There's no doubt about that. And the best thing that's happened to their mother, which is my ex wife is the fact that they're able to do all kinds of wonderful things for her. Yeah. So and you still have a pretty good relationship with her. So does my my current wife? We we we get along. She's benefited from your the success of your son's absolutely how did being financially stable and set head of the change your life were able to do things that you couldn't do before. Well, most people that I know. I've known since bene- kid. When I started five guys, I let three or four my buddies that I went to high school with buy stock in my company because I thought it would be a great thing for them because they didn't have money little bit a little bit of money, but much and one of my had a loan the money. And they're all millionaires now, but we're still same old people. I just had bunch of my friends down from Michigan a couple of weeks ago on my boat in Florida. We drink beer together. Same same as it was thirty forty years ago, and you can lead a pretty anonymous life like no one you're not walking around the street, and no one's like Jerry, the founder five guys. No. In fact, my wife always says she gets upset me if I'm sitting out in the front yard can't beans. Then I'm always I always wear Levi's. And and, but I don't I don't know how the people look at me. But I don't I don't think any put on airs. I hope not. Yes. It's amazing thing we said earlier that that when kid the the nuns said you were going to sell hamburgers. What about your mom? What would she thought about what you did with five guys hamburgers? My mom liked hamburgers. Have not. That was a good idea. If my mom used to say if you can make good hamburger or serve good drink or give a good haircut. You'll always have an income. Jerry morale founder of five guys, burgers and fries. And if you add up all of the restaurants in franchises around the world. He says they are approaching two billion dollars revenue by the way for years. Five guys resisted selling milkshakes about two years ago after considerable debate some stores decided to start selling them with mixing flavors like peanut butter banana, strawberries, salted caramel. And of course, why not bacon? And please do stick around. Because in just a moment. We're going to hear from you about the things your building.

Wait, don't tell me on the NPR one app or wherever you listen to podcasts. Hey, welcome back to how I built this from NPR. I'm guy Roz. So Jerry in a Suns opened up a tiny burger joint in Arlington Virginia. And at first people knew about it through word of mouth. But of course, eventually newspapers started to write about the burgers. And then the lines started to get longer. So Jerry and his family start at the think about opening a second location, but they needed the money to finance it. Remember going into the Bank. And. Do what? It's another hamburger place, and it would just they laughed at us. But sons said we got friends that their parents got a little bit of money, and they know five guys is doing good. Maybe we'll ask them for for few thousand. So we got eventually we had about one hundred and fifty two hundred people that would be willing to anyone time to give us money. But not as investors just for loans. We did it a different way. We did it as investors we'd say give us five thousand dollars. We'll give you a certain percentage of the gross. Not never that profit. Because it was always too many ways to get cheap people that way. So I said, we'll give a certain percentage of the gross. We'll give you the money every single month. And anytime you want your money back. You can have it. And everybody said, well, that's stupid. Because if you have a blip was going to come in and ask for the money back, but my methods of my man was also that I said to them anytime, I'm gonna pay you back. I Cam because I knew someday if this thing was successful. I was going to get better. Financing. Thank you, go back to these people in paying back anytime. See you never gave them. So they weren't equity owners not in a real sense. We just being a note said if this store does twenty thousand a week, you get a certain percentage at every week, and we gave him the money exactly on time every month. So that we could always go back and ask for more money. So how much money did you? Did you raise for to do store number to offer store? Number two. We probably only had a raise maybe maybe a hundred and fifty thousand but we had we had a lot of people that just wanted to throw money on say like the burgers, they're doing with. They like the fact that we're making money, and they were getting paid every month. I had about seventy five people, I didn't even know on that list. And I used to say to everyone don't put your money in somebody else's business. And they would just like. Like a lotta people saw something five guys were you fully committed to this. Or did you you still doing financial planners financial planning at what point do you say to your kids, and your wife, you know, I'm going to give up my job? And I'm going to focus on five guys fulltime will that was almost the day. I got hit in the head with a broom. I must have been having a bad day at the office or something, and I went home, and I said, my wife, I quit. And she said, you gotta be crazy. And I said I'm done I'm not going to work anymore. I'm just gonna concentrate on the burger business, and she was pretty upset because she thought this is too risky. Yes. And but you thought I think we can make this work. Well, I just I thought it was fun. Yeah. I always told my kids I said, you don't have to be in this business. If you wanna be make sure it's fun pick something you like to do in the business. Okay. So now, it was like the entire family focusing fulltime on five guys. What roles did everybody play? Well, janey is like a general. I mean, she is very organized runs the office and everything, but my kids were able to go to investors. And so I kind of if it wasn't for them and my wife, there'd be no five guys. I didn't Bill five guys used this. I used to sit around thinking look at this thing is growing so fast. I can't believe it. You know, they came up with most the new ideas, they pretend they listened to me. So I have lived in in the Washington DC area for a long time often. And I remember, you know, driving to Virginia in like, you know, nineteen ninety nine two thousand to get five guys burgers Virginia when it was still just what four or five locations two thousand two up until two thousand two you grew it to five shops five and were you doing pretty well. Will you all making a decent living at that point? You guys must have been rich. No, you weren't. But the thing is we had figured out the nuts and bolts of the business by them. Most franchisers start off to franchise. We didn't start off the franchise. We had no idea. We're going to do that. We started off the Bill the family business, and we put seventeen years into it. When we figured out how to do it, right? Yeah. So when it came time to franchise, and we had a perfect system. So how did you then at that point say you? Hey, let's franchise let's build this thing out. My son's came to me about the nineteen late late nineteen ninety and started trying to convince me franchise, and I was dead set against it really dead set against it. Because I didn't think there was any way. I could convince the people to do we were doing. So how did they change your mind? Well, there was a guy named Mark Moseley that was selling franchises for another company. He been watching five guys for while. And my kids got me to meet with them. I didn't wanna do it. In fact, they bought me a book called franchise and for dummies. It was written by Dave Thomas from Wendy's the other guy from yes, okay? I read it. And I the legal stuff was was amazing the rules. You had a follow and everything. So they talked me into it. Why didn't you wanna do it? Because when you start franchising, first of all talent a franchise either. You're not gonna worry about food costs. That's pretty pretty stupid. You're gonna tell a franchisee that you're not gonna advertise. Sounds pretty stupid. You're gonna tell them the only going to sell hamburgers and French fries. They're all going to say, wait a minute. We gotta be openly. Do we gotta sell alcohol, and we got watch food cars, we got to shop around for our products. And I don't do that. I said I might we buy from people and we're going to stick with them that was on hard to south the franchisees, but we got through that. And I remember Mark coming in because he was going to be our salesman. He said he's going to sell. I can't remember how many stores the first year. They're going to sell. But I said no just cut that in half. If you're going to sell fifty just cut it down to twenty five you don't have to sell fifty. And I think within a year and a half or two years we sold thirty five hundred we saw the whole United States.

"five guy" Discussed on How I Built This

"Business. Five guys being what what's what's the Genesis? You want to hear the short side of the long, Ron. Well, where I grew up. There was a guy named push them up. Tony and push them up. Tony had a little tiny hamburger place with opinion table in it and he had a grill and he didn't sell anything hamburgers. And the ili seem pappy and. Stuck in the back of my mind cause people used to come from all over town get hamburgers there. And then when I moved to Washington, I saw something I just couldn't believe was ocean city, Maryland, and they had a place and they were so important one fries. There's a place called Thrashers and the must been twenty places soundboard want fries only one place had a long line. Now Thrashers line is one hundred feet long all day long. So me and the kids that got into our mind like hamburgers and fries. Keep it simple might work. And that's where the idea came from. So what did you do did you? I mean, did you go to your wife and say, let's try burger joint. Yes. What she say part of the same thing. The banks said of the time you guys out of your mind. But we we did it a little different. We said, let's not put a lot of money into it and less find a place where the rent is real law. Out of the way. We're nobody can see it and everybody. So why would you wanna do it that way? And we said, well if we can put where it's hard to find. But if we can get people come in there than we know we got something and this was in nineteen eighty six right? Yes. Where was the first location Columbia pike Glebe road in Arlington Virginia, and it was like a little place and rent was cheap. And what was the how much money did you have to put up with our first story put thirty five thousand dollars, and what did that cover everything? The the rent the equipment. We found junk equipment rebuilt it ourselves and was stand up only, and Chad and Matt were still in high school. Thanks, chad. Was I think maybe thirteen or something? And I said, I got some money saved up for college. If you know if you wanna go to college, and they pretty much said. Now, we'd rather do something else we go back for a second, you Satcher kids down, and you had your kids college fund, and you said to them. Hey, look, I got this college money. I I will send you to college or you cannot go to college, and we can use it to open up a burger joint. Right. Where you I mean, you can imagine today like a parent saying that to their kids and then other parents saying you're mortgaging your kids future on this burger joint. Yes. Did you have any of that feeling in your mind? Like, maybe this is not a great. No, no, no was telling us. It was right thing to do. Probably look back on. It was probably a silly was kinda crazy. It was crazy didn't seem crazy for some reason. We all seem to be on board with it. Yeah. And now I was really surprised because kids jumped right in and worked hard and janey worked tired. She kept all the books, and I was amazed. How the kids jumped into it in. What is the story with the name? How did how did you come up on my? Lawyer said you should incorporate and you need to have a name as he fills out the papers. This was so well thought out that we didn't have a name so me and janey and the boys we had three sons, plus one more son would Cheney my fifth some wasn't born yet. So as four sons in me, so we said, well, we'll call it five guys for now. And then with change it soon. We get the papers Phil what change it in the lawyer said, okay? Okay. So I on your first day the the opening day nineteen eighty six did you did you have a grand opening? No, we then. And when I opened up at eleven o'clock, there was no business at all the quarter twelve and then one person finally walked at twelve thirty. We were we were almost packed and we made money from my very first day, and we break in even we're paying I rant and the employees right because everybody was a couple employees, but mostly was a kids, and we were paying them some. I think at the time we're paying him said fifty nine or something like that. How did you even know how to make a burger? I mean where you could home. Chef was anybody family? Good. Chef listen come from my hometown can't make a burger you can't live. We know how to make burgers. And from where I'm from posing was right near us. And they raise potatoes. I grew up in a farm as a lot of I knew I knew how to cook potato. And I knew we know how to cook a hamburger that was about it. You knew how to grill burger a fried potato, and that's all you really need. We get the ingredients from like the potatoes and stuff like how did, you know? How to source this stuff? We went to Thrashers in ocean city and looked on the potato bags, and we found out they came from Rigby, Idaho. A guy named Rick miles was small potatoes or out there. So we got a hold of him. And we said would you sell us potatoes? We did not know what the time that he was small now he's become a multimillionaire because we we buy all our potatoes from him. And what was your special about his potatoes? They were sold by Thrashers. Ocean city say you thought, hey, if there's a line, I tried this potato joint potatoes must be good brings be good. What was five guys offering at that time was at burgers with all the toppings and all that stuff. Well, what we did with kids janey, and I would not tell the kids how much we were paying for the product. We said whatever pickles. You wanna put on the hamburgers? You guys picked the pickles. So they would try different brands and different pickles and the foundation end up with the most expensive pickles. So were and we wouldn't say anything about it. We'd say okay, that's a pick. What you want by those pickles just by him at the Mark. I okay, then we said we'll buy the most expensive cooking on you wanna cook in and it was peanut because that's where they cooked on those and city they wanted to buy this bread from little Baker in Arlington made really good bread Brennan's bakery. Part of the best bakery in Arlington time. But for a restaurant that'd be expensive. We're paying about seven times for a hamburger bun is. Mcdonald's was then. And what what was it burger going for in nineteen eighty six? I think we're selling something like three times four times. Mcdonald's was sound for which everybody said, we are crazy wouldn't make it that way. But we didn't let the kids know how much we're paying for any of the food. So they would just go out there, and whatever it was that they liked it. That's the way it was. And what was the thinking behind that strategy? The thinking was that they're going to pick the best product they gonna pick what the customer legs what they laid giving example, how ridiculous it is the kids like the certain kind of Maini's because it was thick. And it would hold thing scatter. And we were buying our main as at the time from them guy up in New York City that was really hard to get along with. And so when we hired our first purchasing agent, he said, there's no way that Maini's is this important no way because this guy was so hard to deal with. So we had all the family come in and do a blind mayonnaise taste into this. Day. I can't eat mayonnaise by itself. So we had like nine different dishes with main as technical spoon and everybody would taste the manny's blindfolded. And he's improved here that you can't tell the difference in this mayonnaise or any other manny's. And after the Africa blindfolds off, my wife, myself and all the boys picked the same as equal. And it was a management are getting from New York. So Jane, I will we would do at the end of the month. We'd look at the sales. And then we'd look at how much we paid for the food. And we'd say we got to raise our prices the kids didn't know why we raising the prices, but we would always say food costs. Stay around thirty percent. Whatever we gotta do. We gotta raise prices, we raise prices. And we said if we have to worry about price, we don't wanna be in this business. Okay. So you've got this first burger joint, right? And people find out about it. How do people even know about it? The only way would be somebody else telling them they said, there's this great burger places little like walkup shock. You. Gotta try it. Right. That's the only way they would have found out about it. There was a place in DC when I first moved here had office downtown lunch and breakfast, but was downstairs, and it was an alley, and it was nothing door from member right to steel door coming off the alley, but all officers around. There would go to this place and was on marked. And it was an alley. And I was always impressed with the fact that that gang could do that much business, and I knew him I knew much money was Megan and he sold it and within three months. It was gone. The people were going there for the food. And it was working and said, we'll hang if that guy can do that. Then just open up in a corner and people like us felt comment. They don't like us they want, and then we won't be in the business. Coming up. How five guys did stay in business? And how they grew way beyond Virginia. Even though the last person who wanted to do that. His Jerry stay with us guy Roz, and you're listening to how I built this from NPR. Hey,

Well, that's kind of what Jerry Morell had in mind when he wanted to open five guys one place, burgers and fries. Keep it simple. And he deliberately looked for a hole in the wall somewhere kind of out of the way because he thought if he can get people to come there. Then, you know, you've got something pretty great. We I ran this episode in June of twenty seventeen it's a really fun one. And hope you enjoy it. How did you even know how to make a burger? I mean, were you a good home? Chef was anybody in your family, a good? Chef listen come from my hometown can't make burger you can't live. So we know how to make burgers and let it cook potato that was about it. You knew how to grill burger out of fried potato. And that's all you really needed to know. How to do? That's all we knew. From NPR. It's how I built this a show of that innovators. Entrepreneurs idealists and the stories behind the movements. They built. I'm guy Roz and on the show how a tiny family run burger joint in suburban Virginia became one of the fastest growing restaurant chains in American history. So Jerry is going to move a little closer that Mike. Right. Yeah. So Jerry, get a little bit closer. Okay. And can you see me? Okay. Yeah. You ready? No, okay. Introduce yourself, please. If I met you to party, I'd say, well, who are you? What's your name, Jerry morale? And what do you do so hamburgers? So this is the founder of five guys, burgers and fries. Jerry morale is seventy three years old. And it's been a long journey to get to where he is today. He was born in a small mining town in northern Michigan. In jury says when he was a kid his dad wasn't around that much. He was a. An adventure. He he wasn't very family oriented. He was a stunt pilot. That's probably why. My mama him got a divorce fairly early. Shea went to Catholic school as a kid where he says he was not the best student terrible. I didn't like school. In fact, I can remember the nuns used to say, you know, you're gonna end up selling hamburger someday. So don't work hard. Anyway, cherry did get through school. And eventually he went onto study at the university of Michigan. I got scared there. I said my God, how am I gonna make it in this world with all these smart people around effect? I was more intimidated after I got out of college than than ever. So after college Jerry moved back to his hometown. And he married his high school girlfriend and get a job selling life insurance. And they had three sons, but the marriage didn't last wife ended up leaving and taking the kids to Florida and for Jerry that was a low point kind of floated around for a while lived in different cities. It wasn't sure what he was going to do with his life. But he was sure of one thing. Well, one thing is sure of is going gonna give kids pack. You wanted your kids to live with you. How are you gonna do that? Why didn't know yet? Around the mid nineteen seventies. Jerry was offered a consulting job in the DC area. So he took it, and he moved to Alexandria Virginia. And that's where he met his second wife janey and after situation stabilized a bit his kids did actually come to live with him. And it was also around that time when Jerry decided to become a financial planner. I was shocked at how much money there was in the DC area. So I'm gonna go back in the financial planning business. And I got my degree from Brent Maher and started sound financial products to people in the DC area. And that's what I did. So the boys move in with, you know, all of a sudden you've got five people could household of five people. Right. And that was basically what you did you. You were a financial planner financial planner. I tried a few businesses. I started oil business in Texas. And I did a couple other dumb things. I tried to start a water business of all things. I thought Selma bottled water back then within been a good idea and everybody laughed at me and hard time raising money isn't an early eighties. Middle seventies. The worst one was oil because I started a company, and I went down to Texas and found out that they were waiting for me because I was from the east, and they're gonna take all my money. And and then then my wife, and I went into the real estate business, and we we were experts at the buying real high. And then when it crash and trying to get rid of it. Okay. So so if I get this, right? You were doing financial planning as your main job at, but you you'd had like all these business ideas that you would try on the side. The and basically none of them worked at right, right? I really didn't know what is doing. I'm just lucky. I'm just lucky that that that. That I got gotten hamburger business.
