College Basketballs Uncertain Return to the Court
"I on thursday. Tupper beat six rate. Kansas ninety awesome performance and then on friday afternoon mark to the gonzaga coach. Confirm that the zags beat auburn on friday morning. Nine hundred sixty seven after a player believed to be julian straw. They're tested positive for covid. Nineteen so norlander. We're gonna get into next credible opening week on the court second. But let's start here where you surprise in an auburn still played on friday after a gonzaga player test positive. I was surprised because my opinion is that if other teams and i'm not saying all other teams but many other teams were in that situation. The game would not have been played in my opinion. If gonzaga ran into the issues it ran into and it was playing in belleville. gonzaga would not have played. It's game on friday. Gonzaga might not have even played a game against kansas or fill in the other opponent again. If you put it in. And i'm i'm speaking from what i'm seeing here and the protocols and everything that goes into place to even holding this in the state of connecticut okay. Gonzaga had a member of its travel party test positive on thursday gonzaga took two different planes to the event specific and has taken two different buses. It's it's doing specifically to guard against this. But obviously there is no full on guarding against this so we played kansas. And we'll get but then you know at least one player as positive another believed to be The players roommate is kept out as a precautionary reason. And the game goes off because and you can speak to a gp. Frankly we'll we'll get to virginia san francisco the minute but i was i was. I was watching that game. So i didn't hear fuse press conference. I've seen some of what he said. They're the relying on the florida health officials as being the ones that were to clear it and the health officials down there made that determination and it might wind up that that determination is going to be okay in the end. But i've received four text messages from coaches to heads to assistance. All of them basically asking why in the hell is gonzaga in auburn. Being allowed to play right now one of them saying if this was us there is no shot in hell that we would have been able to play and so this this is certainly captured. A little bit of attention around the college basketball world understandably so gonzaga's looked awesome. But you can make an easy argument that it that it should not have a have played the game. What are your thoughts. And then what can you share for the listeners. That might not have seen a about what few said in his postgame. Zoom press conference. Okay so mark was clearly asked about it and he said he kept it very simple. He's did we followed turns guidelines not we tournament guidelines were were in place and established. We had this positive test. And then we follow the guidelines and then the florida health officials came in and they contact tracing how they contact tracing. They told us we were okay. We were cleared to play and we play. He kept it. He didn't really expand anymore than that but listen. They didn't do anything illegal. They possibly did something irresponsible but didn't do anything illegal. They didn't act in defiance of the tournament or florida. Health officials noted that florida as a state hasn't taken covid nineteen that seriously to begin with. So what florida. Health officials were okay. Where quite clearly would be the same thing that said california. Health officials are okay. Wis lucky if they wanted to play the game. They're lucky they were in florida as opposed to to somewhere else. And you're exactly right. It's bubble ville or in south dakota. I don't believe this game would have been played. Wichita state got sent home from south dakota because they had maybe a couple of people in the travel and party test positive. They were like okay. Get outta here. You're not playing today. you're not playing tomorrow. you're not playing it off. So i don't know that this game would have been played if it were a tournament. Where you're at or in south dakota but because this was sort of a thing they put together in fort myers as long. Auburn was cool to play and gonzaga wanted to play. they were allowed to pluck. I though was surprised that the game went off. Because i mean we've seen baseball teams. Get shut down over one positive test during the major league baseball season the world series if it would have if the dodgers did not win the game justin turner had to be removed because they got a positive test back of the game so they take justin turner around. They complete that game. The understanding was that game. Seven of the world series would not have been the following night. They would not have played until everybody can test test test for a few days and they make sure it's safe to play and so yes. I was surprised that they played the game. And hopefully nothing comes from it that it doesn't end up being a quote unquote superspreader of it. Because if we an outbreak now at gonzaga because by the way gonzaga tweet video from the locker room after the victory over kansas and they're all celebrating no mask jewish authors in front of mark. Few right in the middle of the celebration. He is believed to be the one who test positive. So hopefully nothing comes of this but if we have a subsequent outbreak at gonzaga or subsequent at auburn gonzaga is going to become the biggest story in college basketball. And it's not going to be a sports story anymore. It won't be because jalen suggs looks. Incredible it'll be because they knew they positive test in their locker room and they played less than twenty four hours putting their players at risk and the auburn players at risk. I hope it doesn't come to that. But if it comes to that this becomes a bigger story than just to college basketball story. It becomes something that's on. Cbs evening news. Yeah we'll wait and see if that does happen. I mean auburn's gotta be you know held equally responsible and all of this because it opted to play the game regardless you know there was no self imposed penalty here. Handed down by bruce pearl. That was not in play on friday and so inherently like. You know the chances. Go up that you're going to potentially be infected. We don't know but it's clearly out there. I mean there are. There are no shortage of schools and athletic directors coaches. Just straight up would not play the game. So we'll wait arizona. State would not play baylor because the baylor coach tested positive. Not even a player who was who was gonna who was on the court with other players twenty four hours earlier right and that came from that even came from above. Bobby's hurley's bobby hurley's had which is the case in a lot of these instances but frankly what gonzaga auburn decided to do it. Just flies in the face of convention in college sports in professional sports that we've seen and we'll will you know we're recording this on friday afternoon. We'll wait and see what's going to happen here. Gonzaga's got some high profile games ahead and we're really enough one of them's blade baylor like if there's if there's one team that's actually going to be good with this like it's baylor. They might just play the game regardless. But we'll wait and see if either of these teams are now forced because if it gets another positive one after that like they have no choice. They're going to have to shut down for two weeks and then ask themselves if playing against auburn was really worth it you know. Was it worth it. Because now you're gonna lose these other games

"Love and fort Myer join as welcome Floridians you will hear Josh rush hour on the show at least once a week hotline Josh's the national politics under for national journal he's in the middle he is absolutely nonpartisan he just observed politics I am not I am center right Josh I think this impeachment circuses gonna screw the Democrats I think it's the Pickett's charge I think George Pickett chef is really scoring himself and attacking pump pale in bar is the most shortsighted thing I've seen your opinions. well number one I I think I disagree with you about the Ukraine call a little bit because I think that the the notion that the notion that the president will find out or with testimony before Congress the days and weeks to come but the fact that this aid this phone call it the no central eight you crane may have been held up because the president wanted this investigation of crowds of this idea about what happened in the twenty sixteen election over if you want some political information about other body I I think that even Republicans we talk about that for a second the retirement of a hunter Biden is not and it helped hunter Biden comes up I have seen no connection whatsoever to route to restraining eight I have not seen a single document yet to prove that aid which ever the way but I'll wait and see that I want to go back to whether or not it's legitimate to use leverage on foreign governments do you remember how many countries special counsel Mahler involved in his investigation. he he was an official of which was part of a special counsel representing the government the problem here you is that you have the president the about not an adversary of the government seemingly when a lot of business with a lot of pressure but a lot of pressure on the. one side we're talking about the present United States calling Ukraine secretary Pompeii when Attorney General Barr as well special counsel Miller made thirteen evidence request to foreign governments moreover we have often use American aid to leverage our demands on foreign governments in thousand different ways sometimes against hostile governments when we expel people sometimes with our allies when we refuse to issue it and the most obvious one we cut off arms sale to Saudi Arabia after the Kerr shogi murder was that not the use of foreign aid to achieve a political end what the president did not support that biotech but Congress called for and I think its just hypocritical for Congress six oh my goodness you're using American influence to achieve an end the end is the of the investigation of the steel dossier and what I think was a Russian counter intelligence play against our counter intelligence people. here's our politics gets gets a little tricky and you know the double play we we have a lot of games to play as they say but you know it if if there is evidence that the chat there is a there was a quid pro quo as was seemingly suggested in the event transcript with that with that give you any pause with the with the fact that it Republicans have traditionally been the most vocal advocate of making sure we cannot rush of influence by by helping out right in a sense allow it if you could we could if the Republicans criticized. Obama administration rightfully so or not giving you crane necessary support after you you know record invaded Crimea the notion that there would be a withholding of eighty four despite investigation and and and anything related to the twenty sixteen election and it was and you know you also know that the vice president pants was pulled out from attended that any president that observation Rick Perry was sent to bed I mean they're they're seeing that art there they're not there's no quid pro quo there's a lot of ways. well let's go right to a quid pro quo the United States government has for as long as I've been following it used quid pro quos with foreign governments most top most recently with Saudi Arabia where we cut off contact. to the murder of could show you and everyone agreed that was a good idea everyone thought let's put the deep freeze on until they admit to guilt until they agree to undertake different think deep freeze time we put the deep freeze on the people's Republic of China following Tiananmen Square we've put the deep freeze on so many different people when we want American form quid pro quo is only being used against trump because it's a loaded political term quid pro quo ought to mean what hunter Biden that apparently did which would get fifty thousand dollars a month from the Ukrainian oligarch for reasons yet unknown yeah and so that's when you get money to do something illegitimate is a quid pro quo when you are conducting American foreign policy Josh I don't believe it's a quid pro quo at the outset I think it's an illegitimate use of the term. but you the Saudi example look after that that there was a connection so he knows of the Saudi Arabian government did something pretty pretty disturbing and and and the United States the end of the Congress certainly track track to record Punisher with Ukraine there doesn't seem to be anything on there that this whole corruption and put something on a body that anything that training and government it's okay I I maybe you might be a good cell with you but like if there is evidence we're gonna have a bunch of folks involved in youth and in the policy that are going to be testifying in and among count up a little bit of though with a cocktail gonna gonna testify but we do know some of these other links are every day if there is evidence that points to some kind of connection with holding your cranium aid valuable and necessary creating an aide to fight back Russia in exchange for the B. B. U. these political favors would you not with that that with that not change your mind at all with that number one we sent them javelin in a tank missiles the we being the trump administration which the Obama administration would never give them which was the most important thing so they had already established a willingness to send them a lethal aid which was crucial number two it is not a quid pro quo to use American power soft power hard power all sorts of power to achieve foreign policy objectives and three that crowd strike server the reason this exist Josh I tried to explain it to a few people this weekend the reason that people are concerned about cloud strike is not because the Ukrainians habit worn out or or are holding it back from us it is a question of what happened in the twenty fifteen twenty sixteen twenty seven time period that distorted the F. B. I.'s investigation of first secretary Clinton and then their investigation of Donald Trump ended crowd strike happening to do with it and did crowd strike have a connection with the Ukrainian government or oligarchy I mean this is so obvious to me I guess it's because I'm a lawyer you run down every lead if you accept as legitimate if you accept as legitimate Attorney General Barr. and John germs investigation into what went wrong with Connie McCabe struck page Ben Rhodes I can I can name a dozen if the gang at twelve right if you accepted that is legitimate all of this is legitimate and the partitions in Congress Adam Schiff who is I just heard John Campbell said the least trustworthy member of Congress included latching waters in that calculation I just think we got a call through a charade a charade it's a joke it is absolutely a coup in constitutional clothing. let's just go back to the politics you I mean as far as the crowd strikes though if you had a boxer the homeland security adviser under cross thing that this was nothing zero seven this is like that that I need to see this week so you have the president's own homeland security adviser for two and a half years they have that that there's nothing really legitimate here so that I think that makes me wonder about you know someone in the White House it was very respected by the president and he's saying that the national television which makes you wonder legitimate what I mean more broadly on the politics you know I think you're right I mean I think what makes this different politically and I I think both but I mean Democrats always and never miss an opportunity to miss an opportunity and you know now click here and what went out to a total mess but I think what what what's different here is that this has to do with it if if the evidence what what what some people are suggesting amber transcript I think was certainly very concerned a lot of I've talked about Republican eight other nervous they're not they're not all unequivocally and I think what's worrisome is that there was eight frame that was tied up as a result of political favors you had a lot of voters understand and in the last in the last three days when I have read the entire transcript the entire transcript in each hour so that my entire audience the six AM audiences seven AM audience the eight AM on answer when a richer played across the country they have heard the entire transcript and everyone we read it without embellishment Jeff we read and I played trumpet plagues Lensky people are shocked at the no there there there there just shocked by that they think they're going to hear a quid pro quo they think the president brings up ready when in fact it's a Lensky they think that he is asking for a favor about buying when he's talking about the favors obviously crowd strike in the Russia gate investigation the transcript is I will give you the last minute the transcript is not damning what is damning and George Pickett chef trying to March up this this hill of impeach. they're going to get slaughtered. well I I'm glad you read the transcript of the transcript of the whistleblowers complained that once you take the twenty minutes to read everything and make up their own by the politics is again what what's concerning for the White House because you have now either pluralities or majority than most of the national poll found supporting that is the impeachment inquiry but all over moving comfort offers and never has been the case he's always had a.

If you are not with us last year last hour, you did not hear the big announcement that caused the change in the opener there. And here's the story last March as I have done many times on this show. I have lamented ranted about the fact that rental car companies mistreat those of us that are debit card holders. We have inconsistent service. They always roll their eyes and contempt like we are the red headed stepchild and were to be mistreated, and we're second class citizens, and we're sick of it or sick of it.
