"Are doing well. Thank you very much. Didn't hear anything from Melissa. So let me check out Jeff, who is up next. A hello, Jeff. Good afternoon. What's up, big daddy, fine bomb. How are you doing this evening? We are doing great. Thank you. Listen, I want you to dig back. When did Jeremy actually get let go at Tennessee? I believe it was January of 21, okay? Just think back for a second. What if? And I got some pretty good information on this. What if Jeremy was called into the Chancellor's office? All in on the carpet. And says, hey, fulmer's got to go. We got to get rid of him. He's calling our problem. And Jeremy, because he felt obligated to former because he was the one that hired him. And out of respect, because most of those Alabama guys give respect. And he calls fulmer and says, hey, they're coming after you. They're trying to get rid of. And then fulmer does a complete about face and throws Jeremy completely another bus. Turns everything around on him, and they're Jeremy is holding the bag. That came from a really, really close source. What truly happened? What's your thoughts on that? Jeff, I have never heard that before. And I really don't know what to make out of it. I mean, there were some rumors going around for a couple of weeks that Jeremy Pruitt was in trouble, but remember, you've got four or 5 other coaches involved here. So this is not a this is not simply a Jeremy Pruitt versus Philip Palmer situation. We'll take a short break. Another hour to go. We hope you'll stick around.

"What do you think? That was sick bird. What else is there to do about it? 8 o'clock on a Monday. There's no baseball on right now. That's true. There's no baseball, but you know what? You could go to baseball reference and look up some great statistics, right? Like that of Jason Kipnis, the former all star who announced his retirement, 35 years old. He last played in the major leagues in 2020. He was a great pro he played 19 of his 20 seasons in Cleveland. Reliever Michael fulmer finalized a one year $4 million deal with the Chicago Cubs. I think the cubs are going to be better than what people expect. We've got a cubs preview coming up on today's show. We're also going to be talking to bob Kendrick, who's the president of the Negro leagues Hall of Fame. I'm going to ask him a bunch of questions about satchel page. I just feel like doing that. They've shown feel is going to join us. And we're going to talk about what Aaron judge said yesterday about maybe repeating this season, and I'm going to ask him about what Shohei Ohtani's agent said yesterday or didn't say about a tani becoming a free agent. Here's Aaron judge yesterday's and Yankees camp about how he will lead his captain. I'll be doing I've been doing the past 6 or 7 years, you know, trying to lead by example. Be a voice for this team. On and off the field and keep pushing his team to ultimate goal of bringing the championship back to New York. Why I'm here, you know, one of the main reasons why I wanted to come back and work in tribes is we had a lot of unfinished business here, so looking forward to this new role, but I don't think a lot of stuff doesn't change for me. It got me in this position and I just got to keep focusing on that and keep pushing forward. Okay, since you guys like reality TV, let's talk about the reality that show that the Yankees are and Aaron judge becoming captain. Am I too cynical about this? Like the whole captain thing, I don't get. The garand judge is a terrific leader. He's a great teammate, and it doesn't matter if they put a C on his Jersey or not. It's kind of silly. And I just been around it too much or what, Taylor? No, it's ridiculous. The Yankee captain thing is. It is ridiculous. It's dumb, it's dumb I'm over it. Why is the media playing into it? Please. I don't want to play these clips anymore on this podcast. You know what? I'm going to be on the opposite side. I think it's lovely. It's great that you want to be a captain. Or he gets to be my goodness. If Aaron judge says this year, the be in the captain is a lovely, okay? Sarah, then I'm going to defer to you on this going forward with all those. I was much more interested in Aaron judge answering a question about possibly trying to repeat what he accomplished in 2022. Hey, Kobe. You never know. You never know. But you know, I'm looking forward to it. You know, every time you play in New York, I feel like you're chasing your chase in history. So, you know, I'm used to those moments and I'm looking forward to it. You know, if it's historic or not, you know, I'm looking forward to being back here and getting this thing wrong. That's the reality TV I care about. Like, Aaron judge production in the field. I don't care whether they put a C on his Jersey.

"The one fence dessert. Grab some today. Welcome back. It's always a great when we are able to see what Andrea adelson who covers college football for ESPN. She and crystal have done a phenomenal piece. I highly recommend you reading about what is it 25 years ago is that my math correct about one of the craziest seasons in college football when you got a split national championship and you had a Heisman Trophy award ceremony that many people I might include myself have never gotten over. Andrea, thanks for joining us. Appreciate it very, very much. And really an eager to hear as you dug deep into this season that many a Knoxville don't ever want to think about it again. How are you? How are you? Yeah, it was an adventure reporting this story. There's no question and really it started out as a story about a split national championship between Nebraska and Michigan and what those two teams and the players on those teams think about, well, if there was a playoff, what would have happened? And as the season progressed and suddenly hand in hooker joins the conversation for the Heisman, my colleague Chris Lowe pitches a story about 25 years since the heist man as it's referred to in Tennessee. And as you start putting both stories together, you realize, wait a minute, hold on. Ten season involved in Michigan, Nebraska is well in terms of the split championship and what happened there, and there are still hard feelings on both sides, both Tennessee and what happened with Peyton, and Michigan, believing that, oh, maybe Phil fulmer had something to do with the coaches vote that didn't allow them to be a unanimous champion. And so it went from all right, Michigan Nebraska to Tennessee being at the center of just a wild 1997 season. Let's put the Heisman on hold. Let's get through this season for a moment. I mean, I remember how it ended, I think Tennessee playing, was it Nebraska? I'm trying to remember now. So take us through that season in terms of what went on and what ultimately happened with coach fulmer. Well, Michigan, nobody really expected much out of them headed into the season. I think there were pre season number 14. They'd been 8 and four, just not a lot of expectations. Nebraska, on the other hand, had one national championship, so the more respected program at that time, but Michigan starts to get on a roll. They start winning and suddenly somebody named Charles Woodson emerges and he is playing defense and offense and looking very reminiscent of some of the things Desmond Howard was doing at Michigan when he won the Heisman Trophy. Michigan keeps winning and as the season is closing, Charles Woodson, all of a sudden, is becoming the story for both Michigan and entering the Heisman conversation because never had a defensive player even in that conversation to win a Heisman Trophy. And so you get to New York, Michigan is undefeated. They've got a large lead in both polls, it looks like okay, if they win the rose bowl, they're going to be the unanimous national champions suddenly Peyton Manning loses the Heisman and everyone in Tennessee blames Michigan for this. So let's put that on hold for a second, get to the rose bowl. Michigan plays a close game against Washington state, a sort of a controversial ending, and then Nebraska just throttles Tennessee in the orange bowl and Scott frost. Pleads, oh, it's our coaches last year. Tom Osborne's retiring, you saw the better team, look what we did to Peyton Manning and Tennessee. Please vote for us. And the coaches did vote for Nebraska, The Associated Press poll voted for Michigan. And so you've got a split national championship, even though Michigan had an overwhelming lead going into those bowl games, Phil fulmer was a voter in the coaches poll. So not long after that, people started speculating, well, maybe it was Phil fulmer who changed his vote. In the coaches poll, to get Nebraska to win the national championship there is revenge and Phil has denied this for 25 years. And yet there's a segment of the Michigan fan base that still believes it was Phil fulmer that cost them their unanimous national championship. How close was the final vote in that poll? So four points separated Nebraska in Michigan, Michigan had two more first place votes, but if we're talking about total points, Michigan had four less than Nebraska. If they had gotten all first or second place votes that would have only been two points behind Nebraska. So because there were four points separating them, that means either one coach voted them number four or two coaches them voted them number three because you get points based on where you're slotted in 25 points for a first place 24 for a second. So on and so forth. And so that is what has allowed these conspiracy theories to continue on to this day. The coaches poll back then they were never made public at the end of the season. They are now. So when I talk to Lloyd Carr about this, he basically told me if our polls back then of our ballots had been made public, there's no way that we would have not won that national championship because I don't think any coach would have voted us three or four if their vote had been made public. So specifically, what are the formal state how he voted? Fulmer says he voted Nebraska number one because he was there that night, he saw Nebraska basically destroy his team. It wasn't very competitive at all, Nebraska one I think by 30 points. And when he talked to Chris Lowe for this story, you know, he left a little, I don't remember where I voted Michigan, but I certainly voted them as if they were one of the top teams in the country. And that's what leaves that door open, right? Without seeing the actual ballots from every single coach, we don't know who it was that had them either three or four, and I'm telling you, Paul, my husband's from Ann Arbor. He has got friends who believe for a fact that it was full former who cost them the national championship, but that's how these conspiracy theories live on over time. None of them are based on factor reality. It's just what you think and then you think it for so long. You think that it actually happened? I feel foamer around the drinks if he can convince me he costs Michigan that national championship. I would really be impressed. Back to the Heisman because it's still, it's still bothering. At an event a couple of years ago, New York, with Charles Woodson, he had just been hired by ESPN and he was looking at me very wearing. Like I said, I don't know what you're looking at. I said, you still shouldn't have won the Heisman. I thought he was going to hit me for a second. What happened there? Yeah, it's a great question and there's conspiracy theories on the other side of this one, Paul, right?

"I'm just, I follow it, and I love it, but I think he's the best coach in the SEC right now. Well, yeah. And Pittman, I don't know if there's a coach that looks more like a football coach. No. I was going through the SEC coaches and most of them don't. I mean, they're not Bobby valland looking, you know? Their coaches that look like coaches. Yeah, and you say, what is the quintessential college football coach look like? Pittman, I always thought Philip fulmer looked like a football coach. Right now, I mean, kiffin does not look like a football coach. Saban looks like he should be the chairman at a General Motors. But I'm trying to Napier looks like a football coach, because his father is a football coach too. So Kirby, Kirby looks like a football coach. Hypo does too. I mean, who's that your casting in Hollywood? Those are some of the language does not look like a football coach. No, beamer. He looks like one. Yeah, and I'm trying to think, who else? Kelly looks like one, too. I mean, he could be, he's hardcore. He's not looking like a football coach. Jimbo looks like to me, looks like a plaintiff's attorney. I mean, he's just talking so fast that you better go, you better watch it. Hey, thanks for the call. That's a fun segment next year. Who looks like a football coach and who doesn't. We will be back.

"I wanted your thoughts on that as well. Well, it's always the case, Matt, fans are heard on shows like this, but they're not listened to by patients. David is up next. Hey, David. All time mom, guess what, I'm not going to say nothing about to hear ask you about the barber. I'm not going to ask you how you do it because I know you're doing okay because everybody else asked. What I want to know, but we're going to talk about my volunteers in a minute, but what I want to know is why in the world we let these boobs call this show. Jim wants to sit there and talk about how monkey albums he wants to talk about didn't take a deal, tap daddy did have a good call, but he's taking too much moonshine in Colombia. He thinks parallels go go ten and two. So I don't know what to get ratings from these boobs. What are we doing, Paul fine, bob? What in the world are we doing with this TV show? That's what I want to know. Now let's talk about my volunteers. I've seen ten and two, 9 and three, give me your perspective. Give me, let's stick with you for a second. Ten and two explain to me how Tennessee goes ten and two. All right, I will, but I want you to explain to me how they don't go ten and two. I think I'll lose the door. They will lose out there. All right, they're going to lose the Georgia and Alabama. All right, Kentucky's a push game that could go either way. LSU have the new coach. But illegal. You know that, don't you? They are LSU, but he's a new coach. It's a new system. Anything can happen. It's what I'm telling you. And that's why I'm coming down in three. They might lose the LSU. They might lose a Kentucky. I was paying 93 with a possible penalty. I know they might do this and they might do that and all the other cliches. We don't need cliches. We want opinions here. We don't want nonsense, and you just giving us a bunch of nonsense about how Tennessee can be ten and two. You didn't back it up. We'll try again another day. Let's talk to bubba in North Carolina. Hey, we're on a good subject. We're on Tennessee. There's no way Tennessee is probably going to go to two realistically realistically. But I've heard all these talk about Kentucky going to be number two in the east and all this bull. There's no way they're coming to Knoxville on a beat, Tennessee. It's not happening. In turkey to Tennessee is like Florida is the Tennessee just in reverse. They have something they tend to see is 8 and two against Kentucky to last ten years. Well, I mean, we all know Tennessee once went 25 years without losing a Kentucky. Maybe longer. So yeah, I mean yeah. And me Kentucky. Jeremy Pruitt, well, of course, you know, I had a coach tell me this today. And guarantee guarantor was a Mulligan. To all those coaches who lost to Jeremy Pruitt, I would, I wouldn't count that as a loss because it's going to be vacated. Well, the Jeremy Pruitt deals that Tennessee got rid of him. They sailed for Porter. That was the business. They had 12.6 million reasons to sell report. They got two. Exactly. And the only way they could turn the program around faster is to get rid of him faster. So that's what they did. I mean, what he did and I know some Tennessee fans want to say no big deal. And I don't think it will be a big deal, but it's still disgraceful. I mean, it is it's embarrassing. It's embarrassing for the university. It's a very thing for the fan base cornbread. He was a joke. I think Philip farmer's heart was in the right place when he hired him. But he didn't have a clue that what he hired right there. He didn't hire a he had football, okay? It explained how all of that went on. I mean, Tennessee is a small place. How all of that went on and he either was unaware, which is hard to believe. Look the other way. Or was so desperate to win that he tolerated that. I mean, the same Philip fulmer who called out Alabama as a bunch of cheaters back in the early 2000s, are you telling me he didn't know anything? He saw nothing. Was he that out of touch as an athletic director? That's pretty amazing to think about. Cheerleader is up next. I'm going to have to give up cooking, man. It's just too much work. There's so much work. So now I are you cooking anyway. I mean, can't you just go buy whole food and pick one? I don't know. I have lost my mind. I don't know because I like to, but lately at this paid down here in Birmingham, Alabama. And I feel for these guys that are going to be playing football. On the field. That's something terrible. But anyway, you said something earlier in the show about the network and what time shows were the TV games were coming on and who was quite and who and what time. And you said, well, you know, you know who controlled football and if I'm saying this wrong, let me know, but you know who control football,

"Have an hour and change on a Monday night, one more guest, but still plenty of time for your phone calls. Ron is in Virginia Beach good afternoon. Paul. Hey, it is. Sir, it is a great honor to be on your show for the fourth time, sir. Thank you very much. It is our pleasure to have you here. Yes. Let's talk about SCC football because that's your channel and I respect that. But I'm a little concerned about something. Let's go back here with dabu Sweeney. He got a $93 million contract. And ever since he's got that contract, Paul, he hasn't done anything. So what I'm getting at is I'm going to ask you a question about Kirby smart and I'm not going to down the man because I think he's a class act. And he's from Georgia. And he also was the defense coordinator for Alabama and did well. But he got the a 112 1,000,000.5 contract. And I want to hear from you, what do you think, is that going to jinx unlike. These contracts are, they're just, they're all none of them really mean anything except that there's just an enormous amount of money, here's why. You have the same agent negotiating all these deals. And you know what he does, he goes to Georgia, with Kirby, and said, hey, by the way, I did next deal, and I did Jimbo's deal. And you're not going to, you just won the national championship, so you need to do this. And then as soon as he finishes with Kirby, he goes to South Carolina and tries to get Shane beamer more money, and he goes to the next guy. It's a vicious cycle, and the schools keep paying because they are, there's not a lot of great coaches out there. And it's just a circle game, not what I was intending to say, hey, thank you very much for the call. Silos is in Tennessee, good afternoon. Paul. Okay. Tab 40, article. Does it not seem a little bit like how for me pat 40s pretty much saying that since Pruitt didn't go well that us volunteer fans should feel stupid for not wanting Greg schiano. Correct you're not correct. Well, I think Greg shiana was just a convenient thing to bring up and yeah, to this day, I may not have call this out, Paul. Call him out a little bit. Of course he called you out. But in the end, I've always felt the mistake wasn't so much Gianna. That happened, it was over with an in span of about four hours, but it was the decision later after fulmer took over to hire Pruitt, who let's be honest. He's a dunce, okay? He hired Jeremy, but he hired Pruitt over Mel Tucker and Kevin Steele. Two guys who are infinitely better qualified to run a program fair, but the thing I have against 40 is, he's calling out the fan base a little bit. And here's the thing. For Pruitt, when Pruitt got hired, sure, like maybe some people were supportive of it when it happened. But we were in out there saying prove it. We want Pruitt. Let me ask you a question, though, because I was on a plane that day, and I was literally watching that unfold in real time, but can you explain why fans turned against Greg schiano once certain people started connecting him to sandusky and paternal, which turned out not to be true? Well, he said they're not true, but they're sworn testimonies that it was true. And Paul, okay, okay, let me give you this. He's on the Ohio State staff. They need an interim. He has head coaching experience from the Rutgers experience to have 40 was saying, and they still didn't take him. They think it was Luke fickle, who had no experience. They gave him the job. They wouldn't even give the interim job. And now we're supposed to feel bad that we didn't want him, come on. And plus go balls, man. I got a good feeling about this year. I don't want to make this whole phone call negative. Love your show, Paul. Love hypo go balls, but that's just my two cents. Thank you. Ken, is up next in Philadelphia. Hello Cannes. Good afternoon. Welcome to the show. Good afternoon, mister fine bomb. Thank you for taking my phone call. Thank you. I have a question about coach Pruitt. I can not understand something. He had recruiting privileges at Alabama all the time. He was considered one of the best recruiters at Alabama. This is what I've been told. I don't know that for a fact. Herbie smart, the a plus plus. And I think Phil pharma coach former a Nick sabian. And asked him, what do you think? And I think you took Nick Saban's advice. So anybody that puts all this blame on coach fulmer is I think is wrong because he really and truthfully tried to do the right thing. And what happened in Alabama? Why wasn't anything discovered at there if he was recruiting top, top, top layers? And so why wouldn't coach plummer accept him and bring him into Tennessee? Ken, I'm going to leave that to fulmer. I mean, because I'm not saying Jeremy Pruitt was a disastrous choice. Other than until it was a disaster. Of course, I remember the night he got hired. I thought of the three there were all very good. I thought the other two were slightly better. But it wasn't only that. It was Phillip stewardship of it. He didn't manage through it very well. And you know why did manage through it very well? Because Pruitt wouldn't listen to anyone. Absolutely. He thought he knew it all. And they clashed, I remember sitting with Pruitt on the set of SEC nation. I was trying to help the guy because I felt sorry for his lack of his lack of public skill. And I asked him a question, I said, you know, in terms of coach fulmer, he couldn't even answer a layup question about what he owed to Philip fulmer, because I think by then he had already turned on fulmer. That's the dirty little secret here that Jeremy got the contract extension. He thought he knew it all. And he did, because he wouldn't listen to anybody up there. There are a lot of good meaning people who tried to help him tried to educate him on common sense, moves, just in terms of communicating. And he failed at every level, and he obviously took shortcuts, which have now blown up on him, which in many ways mean he would probably never coaching college football again, which is too bad when you consider what a good coach he was, but the right call when you consider what an absolute disaster he was and how he abused everything.

"Today we are back, yes, normalcy has arrived after we were last week in Atlanta. We appreciate all of you being here. On a Monday, we began to move out of July. When we were here the other day, the big story came from Tennessee and not much has changed. A lot of people still wondering about how Jeremy Pruitt could go so wrong as the UT head football could rule breaking while serious is a relic in the NIL future. That's the opinion of one of our guests today. In other words, no big deal. And pat 40 from Sports Illustrated, Tennessee, fans got their way. Now the chickens have come home to roost. So it is definitely a different era. Things are different, but remember, the Tennessee allegations all happened before NIL. Does that mitigate it? Does it matter that the school took proactive measures? We're going to find out pat 40 joining us with some very strong comments the other day in his column. About the legacy of Philip foley, there's no reason to use the word legacy in Jeremy Pruitt in the same sentence because that is not going to happen. Pat, great to have you with us. Appreciate it very much. I wish I could have watched you writing that column. If you had as much joy riding and as I did reading it, we would both be very happy. Good afternoon. It wasn't a difficult one to write. That's for sure. You know, I thought when you're reading 18 level one violations and you go back and look at all of the activities at Tennessee that led up to the hiring of both Phil fulmer as a D and Jeremy Pruitt as football coach. Well, this is what they earned. And let's talk about that, pat, because I think we're so we're all guilty. Well, maybe not you, but I am saying, so no big deal, different era. Those are that's yesterday, but let's talk about how we ended up Tennessee ended up with Jeremy Pruitt. I mean, I basically remember the end of it when Philip fulmer chose Pruitt over Mel Tucker a name that has been very prominent lately, but that's leaving out the subject of that conversation with the Greg schiano fiasco in so many other aspects. Yeah. I mean, this was originally, I mean, this was a populist coup at Tennessee a fan revolt, but removed John curry, the athletic director. And before that blocked his hiring of Greg schiano, I'm not going to sit here and say that Greg schiano would have been a great hire, but everybody that says he would be a terrible hire doesn't know either. Nobody knows how Greg shiana would have done, but his track record of going 11 and two at Rutgers is pretty similar. I think the James Franklin going 9 four at Vanderbilt. It's pretty darn good. But then beyond that for curry to be pushed out when he was negotiating or talking to Mike leach and then bring in an absolute administrative know nothing in Phil fulmer and for them him to hire a simpleton in my opinion in Jeremy Pruitt. Well, I mean, this was just one bad decision that compounded another. And while it may have felt good to say, we're taking back our program, we're putting a Tennessee man in charge, the Tennessee man in charge didn't know what he was doing. And that, of course, Phil fulmer, who's a legacy, he had a brilliant career until he got fired as a football coach. And this pat was a make good. Listen, we love coach fulmer. We're sorry it ended badly. The fact that lane kiffin replaced him, mitigates the firing a little bit because that was an equal disaster and so I was and so was Butch Jones. So let's bring him back and forget what happened at the end when he looked the other way on recruiting. And let him be the man and I fell for it. Now I could be my blood, but I thought he was going to resurrect the program. And did he ever pat? Yeah. He did, sure. I mean, you know, that's the thing. Look, a lot of people have good feelings for Phil fulmer. And for good reason, could you use a very successful coach there? He won the last national championship Tennessee one. But that doesn't mean he's going to be a good administrator. That doesn't mean he's going to run a good coaching search. That doesn't mean he's going to make good decisions there, including giving Jeremy Pruitt an arrays and an extension after going 8 and 5 in a year when they lost to Georgia state. That's what helped push his buyout up to the 12.6 million dollar Mark. I mean, I didn't see Phil former do anything well and during his time as an athletic director. Pat in terms of Pruitt, I don't want to lose sight of him, you've done some stellar investigative reporting in your time. Just compare and contrast what you learned in reading this report to what we normally see programs investigated for and I'm not trying to turn anything into garden variety because in the L world, just because players are legally receiving money, doesn't mean coaches can illegally break the rules, which clearly the NCAA is accusing Pruitt of doing. Yeah, I mean, one of the misnomers here is that, well, this is all legal now. No, actually, every single thing that they're charged with in that notice of allegations is not legal. You can not have recruits in and pay their expenses on an unofficial visit. You can't have men on during a dead period. And coaches can not hand wads of cash to recruits or their families. Even now, even in the NIL era, those things can not happen according to the NCAA rules. Pruitt was usually, you know, these things go. The head coach is like three layers removed and said, I didn't know anything was happening. Well, it's kind of hard to say that when you and your wife are accused of literally being part of The Batman batwoman group. So it is incredibly sloppy. It's unbelievably brazen. Yeah, the dollar figures don't jump out when we're talking now about possible NIL deals of millions of dollars, but this is pure out paying recruits to come to school there. And it is one of the more lengthy and I would say embarrassing notices of allegations. I've seen yeah, and pat, I don't know, misses Pruitt. But I do know my wife and no matter what I was doing, she would not cheat to help further my career. I really want to know what the motivation was here. And especially considering she was once a compliance officer at Florida state. I don't know what that says about Florida state, but I do know what it says about Tennessee, and it was a disaster. Yeah, no, that's the other added wrinkle. It's like, she worked in rules compliance. IE her job was to make sure Florida state and Troy university were following the rules. Now she gets Tennessee. She's one of the ones breaking the rules. I mean, this one falls into the category of you really can't make this up. Nor can you make up the stupidity and the abject failure in real time and in retrospect of Jeremy Pruitt's tenure. For those of you who did not see your piece, you described it in historical terms. Would you mind sharing that with us here today? Yeah, I said he's the worst. Worst SEC football hire the 21st century. I know, I immediately heard significant blowback from Arkansas fans who said, no, we want to take a stake the claim to having the worst hire, which is an interesting sort

That's that's my point. Exactly what i was talking about. Because you know that doesn't mean that doesn't necessarily mean that they're going to win national championship. But texas problem or texas reminds me a little bit of tennessee in that most of their problems have been self inflicted They had a good coach Tennessee had phillip fulmer. They had brown. It wasn't enough and And they had never been able to replace either coach and they still have the they still have the name. They still have the facilities. They have the fan base There there's not a reason in the world why either school shouldn't be successful right. That's true but they're cairo. Mammy of Lsu before they won the national day dave stay spit out. nfl calendar other than alabama. Nobody's spit out talent like like. Lsu has yeah and but for. Some reason has to do with coaching and Ricky we didn't realize how truly moronic less miles was as head coach. Took a while to for everybody to figure that out. Yeah yeah yeah yeah it is coaching and also your your your fan base or your boosters or whatever if they too impatient just like disliked taxes. they get too impatient and you know count me on my alma mater jackson state.

We i remember seeing him one time. A power game and He was in the bathroom actually not had the presence of mind not to approach until he was done with his business. But i i gotta say something to joining majors. And i said donnie. He should have won. The heisman obviously looked at me and said he said paul morning pretty good athlete too but he was such a gentleman and what a fitting way to go sitting on the backboard. The drinking and we're looking at tennessee. Where but he was just a great man. We loved them up here in pittsburgh tom he was he was the first coach. Really got to know a new coach battle a little bit. When i was in school but i was there. When majors came marching home from pittsburgh after winning national championship and it. It was people. Just don't understand what a hero's welcome he got back back in knoxville. It was it was truly remarkable all iran. I mean he he was always a dapper guy. He loved having a good time lot of stories. I i remember seeing him. Their pit penn state game and in state college and he was a few rows behind me but he was just so getting gracious with everybody and talking to everybody and he just he was just a great man and we loved him in pittsburgh his his second tour duty came was successful. Will tell you that's one of the sadder things i've seen as he was. He was so bitter after tennessee fired him he wanted to recreate and it. Just it never worked but you know coach majors. Never i mean you know. He never quite got well. I probably couldn't bring this up. Phil fulmer add something to do with i. I will tell you this story. I don't know a couple of years ago. I knew he was not in good health and through some mutual friends and knock so. I attempted to do something that i don't know why i attempted to do it but i thought it would be a great. I was even though. I was not particularly closed at the time. With former i later became closer. I tried to get the two of them together if they would sit down for an interview and it wasn't a rehash the past but it was more just a reminisce and i believe majors agreed to do it and former wouldn't and it's really too bad why it would have been terrible. Well all he did with both. It had an impact on tennessee sports. But we'll all major in the gentleman who was that's fan. I mean they're they're they're they're i remember talking to coach majors years many many years later on the air and he still couldn't let the former thing go and and it's a lesson a lesson for all of that yeah. I don't blame a meal. You're right you're right there into why it the nfl. I remember many people brought this nick. It kind of occurred to me yesterday. When i turned some something about some fresno state twin or something getting a jump start on it and one where the girl was the guy. And i'm thinking. I think the ones who are gonna make is not a quarterback or the running back a wide receiver at the big schools. I think it will be the pretty girls like the track and field girls soccer girl the volleyball girl. I mean you know a lot of these girls. Are you know instinct graham stars and you know if you're a pretty young girl you're gonna get a lot of hits on instagram or whatever you're on and more hits mean more revenue curious. What your opinion is on that. I don't i think. I think you're right. There will be Nontraditional success in in some of it will thank you for the call. Somebody would tommy. Will some of it will depend on where you are in certain markets. Lacrosse is big. Volleyball is big. But yeah i do think the stars are going to get the biggest numbers. I really don't know how it's going to go. Although today i was i had lunch with a an executive in that field and he told me that there were there. Were some rumors out there of some mega-deals that will be announced overnight. So tomorrow is going to be a very big day in this conversation. Thank you for the call. Mike is an austin. And you're on the air am i. Oh well i think you just kind of answered my question. I was gonna get you to save you would pontificate a little bit on this in i l. and how will be implemented. Because i don't feel like there's going to be very many people that are going to be doing this windfall bags of money all the sudden over this stuff. I think it's just a gripe or some of us that's in some big donors. Well i think there are some companies who are going to look for the initial publicity and by by announcing tomorrow they'll get it but ultimately this is going to be a local situation and quite frankly i don't think we can predict. I think everyone will try it. Al but for for every small business person out there are big business. Person doesn't matter. You wanna return on.

"I'm Lou Ann Fulmer calls here to guide you. So, Eric, you can find a lot of articles about retirement planning, You know that talk about all those guidelines like the 60 40 portfolio rule or the 4% rule things like that. Could you explain why, with today's economy and these low interest rates we maybe should think twice before relying on these basic rules of thumb. Well, so the 60 40 was the 40 refer to it refers to bonds on so bond funds are you know these air debt from typically companies or could be governments and they're paying you back interest. Yeah, There's should be, You know, that's a lonely um, If you're borrowing money, and you pay it back, there shouldn't be any gains or losses on it. But most of these bonds are tradable. So that means as rates change or go up and down, you may have a gain or loss also and law. These bonds are often quite long, You know, 10 2030 years so Yes, in streets changed and you have losses on those. The other thing, too, is if you're one of those target date funds and like you're following Kay or something where it's the you know, Whatever the 2030 or 2040 fund. Those funds by definition are some sort of mix like that. Where they have so much in stocks and so much in bonds, And as you get closer that age and more more bond, so your portfolio doesn't is it is volatile. But the problem is those are gonna earn much. I mean, last year, they all did very well because of the rate's dropping down Well, when the rates dropped to zero, it ain't gonna go lower right? So they're already at the bottom so you can't go lower than what they are now. So that means the only possible solution is having go back up at some point way down the road and you have losses. So yeah, I think right now is probably the most dangerous times have over reliance on bonds, but you also don't want to take a ton of risk and reason why people do bonds their lower wrist, so that's when you have to start looking at foundational money type stuff. Steady income Money's need looking stuff outside of normal market funds. To really, really Take care of yourself, Eric. You mentioned how people can go to your website in and do their risk score. Take the assessment and figure out what their risk score is so investing in the markets does seem like a good way to try to generate income. Okay, They're probably gonna get higher returns than just you know the interest rates in the bank, But I want to talk about the risk that is involved in investing should retire. He still have a portion of their retirement assets invested in the market. Yeah. You have to have money Growing always. I mean, you know you're there. Growing, you're dying is the same goes right. And she has so you don't want your money be dying, and definitely not before you do is right. So S so you still want that? But you do want to mitigate the risk is the part that love you who are working Don't fully get is, you know you hear this mantra of just hanging there? Just hanging there. Wait till the market comes back. Can't do that. When you retired when you retire, needy that check next month to pay your bills and get food and do things and all that type of stuff. You can't just wait and see what happens is if there's a market crash And your money's down. It doesn't matter if you're gonna need to have some of that money and legally, you may have to be required by law. If you're over 72 to take that money out and pay the tax on it, so You may not even have the option of not whether or not to touch it. So that's why you have to tone down the risk. And that's why you have to add these foundational, steady income monies to that market money, and that's a That's a critical thing in retirement. Do you think are low interest rates situation right now kind of highlights why it's really important to have a little bit of money invested in the market. I do, but also the other. The other risk of we run is there's a lot of signs that are pointing to more more inflation. And if inflation starts coming back up, then that means someone stocks. Other things may not do is is quite a swell. That's where real estate assets other things could be. Inflation protected, so and so we do we actually have retirement income strategies is a report about how interest rates how that's gonna affect you going forward and Yes. So that's when they were. All you do is text the word income to 804 54 11 84 again. Text the word income 804 54 11 84 or go online directly and requested there at wealth.

Tennessee fires the third year head coach. Last night. Made internal investigation into recruiting violations. The university and the anti double A investigating alleged recruiting violations within the program. Tennessee is a school has retained a pair of lawyers to aid the investigation. So Tennessee has brought in lawyers for this. Because he's being fired for cause Tennessee will not pay his buyout clause, which is $12.8 million. $12.8 million, Okay? In the termination letter to Pruitt. The school released this letter, and it read your failures are likely to lead to significant penalties to the university. Has jeopardized the eligibility of our student athletes. Again. This letter is pretty damning, pointed the finger approved and saying You're a disaster. In the wake of this Phillip Fulmer, the legendary head coach there that won the last Tennessee National championship back in 1998. Is also out is a D After just a short couple of years there Tennessee plants to hire a new athletic director first. Process that Phillip Fulmer apparently will partake in ISI bridges the gap Now there's these alleged recruiting violations from assistant coaches on the staff. That are not necessarily tied directly to Jeremy Pruitt. But the school is saying, this is your staff. You need to be in charge of it. And so once again, Tennessee finds itself in the middle of chaos. And disaster and controversy and my first my first instinct. When I saw this story, my first reaction was Man again. Again. A couple of years ago, I had a chance to go down to Knoxville as I talk about regularly here on the show. I'd like to pick out one college football place to go to every single year that I've never been to two just experience their culture, their pomp and circumstance, their experience, and I love it. I mean, college football. I just love for that reason. My trip to Tennessee, which is a nomad episode was one of my favorite college football trips, and I did it solo. Normally I go to these places with a friend or multiple friends that weekend. Nobody else could make it and I said, I'm still going because I was actually invited by the school to come down there and experience a game on the sideline and tour the facilities. That included the Peyton Manning room, which is looking over the practice facility with all this awesome Peyton Manning and Knoxville, Tennessee of all. Memorabilia, which you know is right up my alley. I got to see the training staff for the weight room rather and the training rooms and stuff like that, and Got to tour the facilities of the stadium, and it was, you know, awesome. I mean, that's one of those things that I pinch myself when I got into this position that I still get to do and go. Wow. Can you believe this? I mean, those are the things that I really get a kick out of it arise out of I got to have beers with ball Navy, which is the boats, the tie up. Right along the Tennessee River outside of the stadium and being inside Neil and Stadium, you know for a Saturday game day in the fall is a freaking amazing experience, and I got to meet so many great people evolves. Fans die hard balls, fans that I just had such a great connection to an appreciation of And in fact, I had always been around Knoxville growing up because my family actually caravan down or at least we brought this. The old 1990 Chevy Suburban Down to Dollywood. Dolly Pardons. You know, amusement park in Pigeon Forge, which is not far away from Knoxville. So I always saw all of the volunteers, flags and Tennessee block teas and always got a kick out of it because we were around it so much when we go down there, and we went down there multiple times when I was growing up. So I always you know when you see on TV 100,000 people in checkerboard, orange and white and you see The experience. It's it's mesmerizing and yet Tennessee program has been so mediocre or below mediocre for so long. And it appeared that Jeremy Pruitt might be a decent higher because by year two we started to win, and then it just kind of all melted away in the last year was three and seven. They were Utter disaster, and they can't fix the quarterback position. And Tennessee just once again cannot get out of its own way with its coaching hire. Jeremy Pruitt had a couple of scandalous moments as well. And so it just kind of felt like there was always something. And if you remember how Pruitt got the job, originally Tennessee wanted to hire Greg Siano. And there was the huge outcry and mob mentality with the pitch force that they could not hire Greg she Otto, because He was somehow tied to the Jerry Sandusky Situation slash show paternal back it at Penn State, which always seemed like a bit of a lark, because The Tampa Bay Buccaneers of the NFL. Hired him and he was part of that, and Rutgers had hired him. And he was part of that. And now Rutgers had hired him again. And he was part of that and other NFL teams had hired him and he was part of that. And yet the Tennessee volunteers absolutely refused. It felt more like the volunteers. People that spoke out thought that they were better than Greg. She Otto and use that as the reason the excuse to rally and say, no, don't know. We can hire a guy like this because had great shadow. Been a bigger name. Had he been urban Meyer or Nick save in or something like that? And he had ties to Penn State..

Vols firing Pruitt with cause after investigation
"Butch jones suddenly looking better. Jeremy pruitt gone today. John joining us. These senior sports editor at aol dot com and john. It is great to have you with us. We've talked about the possibility that pruitt would be gone. He is now gone. Fulmer out as well. Your reaction another stunning day on rocky. Top back on again paul. You know. I think that the part that i guess is maybe the most surprising to me is the phil fulmer component Because as you know we talked about the past you know there's obviously been you know. Rumors swirling about tennessee. Possibly moving on from jeremy pruitt for a while. I think a lot of people in the industry thought when that first report came out that tennessee was looking into Potential recruiting violations under pruitt that was signaling that they would like to fire pruitt with 'cause a four forecast which you know they've made very clear that is what they are doing. The former component is a little different because he is such legendary person with that blake department From his time as a football coach and you saw today in that press conference just the these university leaders really going out of their way to praise him and talk about how he's at tennessee. Ledge all those different things. So i think you know fomer kind of getting pushed aside Calling it a retirement. But i think there's a little more to that is probably the most interesting component of this to me because now it means you not only have to fire new. Find a new football coach but you also have to find a new ad. Do you think john. It was the contract extension. That former gave jeremy pruitt attorney was the final tipping point for him. I would imagine it's probably a lot of different you components to it because you know hey we have to remember this. Was you know fomer higher to begin with you know as that whole crazy. Coaching search point out and former becomes. Ad then hires jeremy pruitt. I also think. I mean if you were watching that press conference today paul. You know felt like you know so. It's still in some ways defending pruitt. They're asking him about how pruitt would be remembered and he talks about how you know recruiting had been good Which is obviously ironic considering that they fired him in part because of recruiting violations and fired nine people in total also tied the recruiting department But also just the way that he was talking about how pro had rebuilt relationships and all these different things it felt like to me at least that former was not out on pruitt as a higher to that point. So you know part of it could have been simply that you feel wasn't ready to move on from pruitt and it s part became what we're gonna make just wholesale changes here and i think if you remember paul you know one of the reasons why earlier in the year before we knew about all these recruiting violations. I was always a little skeptical. Pruitt getting fired in part because it would reflect poorly on former. And i didn't think four would want to move on from his higher Like you said he just gave an extension to after only three seasons as the head coach

Fear of war mounts as Iran and the U.S. trade escalating threats
"Talked about the initial We've talked about the issues surrounding grounding the death of the Iranian military leader this weekend but the papers are full of the different ways to approach this huge crisis. Yes I mean looking across the British from pages. This morning is You know a clean sweep of mostly obviously the British reaction to the US attack back on the Iranian leader And as you say they take all the different different views of it so The Daily Telegraph is leading with Boris Johnson's comments on own as he returned from from his holiday over the New Year. warning Iran do not retaliate and saying that prime minister is calling for de Escalation of hostilities Whereas the Guardian looks at it from different view saying pressures growing on trump to justify the killing And they are reporting that you know the reasons that Donald trump gave for this for this attack because hanging they were you know the thin and the Financial Times Iran Rolling Maki this interval backfire. Back on the nuclear deal as Iraqis removal of US troops. I'm the Times has an interesting front page where they have spoken to an unnamed senior commander in in the could foresee they say had worked was being close to because all the money and they've told The Times that offers Iranian forces will will retaliate and target. US troops in the Middle East without any concern about killing its allies including UK troops and continues as this has turned into a fully-fledged fledged war with much. Collateral damage expected. Now obviously a loss of this on both sides is saying warned making grave threats and huge warnings warnings. And we don't know what is actually going to happen but Interestingly the The Daily Telegraph has also been speaking to FULMER UK hey military figures. They've spoken to the UK's former head of the navy and ex national security advisor Lord west of spit head and he is wanting. I'm saying that suggesting that the UK is softer target than the US. Any violent backlash by Tehran. He says I mean any Iranian response. He says will have to be calculated related to avoid a full blown war and he is suggest the Telegraph suggesting here. Some of the potential threats to the U K would include possibly iranian-backed a back sleeper cells British tourists and business travellers British prisoners in Iran of course people lightnings Ghauri Ratcliffe's case has been very high profile cyberattacks rex which is shipping and fuel supply and British troops in Iraq shows sort of how wide-ranging what's interesting here is. The anger seems very very much Directed against the United States but by Iran and Iraq. However the statement that we had from the French President Emmanuel Macron Germany's Chancellor Angela Merkel and the British Prime Minister Boris Johnson and European allies? It must be said do not mention Donald Trump wants and they do not mentioned the US's involvement in this. It seems to be an argument entirely between you between the US. And Iran with other countries being dragged down as collateral damage. Well I think you know yes as you say the the other countries and it's interesting that here Britain is putting out a joint statement with with France and Germany. Obviously in a who they had worked with in the past over the the Iran nuclear and then they're focusing as you say very very much on. What can we do about the rest? We are still continuing our fight against Dr Against Against Isis. We are still looking at the broader picture in the Middle East and they are really trying t- to calm the situation but let's let's see how how that will would

Dr. David Chao talks injuries
"Dr Child always good to have you aboard for the show. Thanks for having me. So when we look at some of the injuries that kind of flakes of the skill position talents We had a big one again in Tampa and it seems to be history repeating itself last week we talked about Mike Evans. His hamstring hamstring the season ending scenario. That played out there. Lo and behold Chris Godwin goes down with what looked like a similar injury last. We saw him carted off in the tunnel in Detroit. Coincidence there is there something going on in Tampa as it pertains to their wideouts in their hamstrings as we get into the tail end of the season they run them ragged and they throw the ball lot. That's probably the only Only Lincoln Yeah and if you really WANNA go conspiracy theory Mike Evans last week. You Scott Miller Another wide receiver earlier in the game in Chris Godwin in early in the season Perriman had a hamstring issue. So if you really trying to go that way but I think it's just coincidence and maybe some of it is They're still slinging the ball around quite a bit Four hundred fifty yards for James Winston This week so so they were running a lot of routes and so forth as we talked about Mike Evans Hamstring with significant and with only three games left. We thought you and I are candidate. I think the same something's GonNa fall for for Chris Godwin here. You know there's only two weeks left there the bucks out of it The hamstring is probably going to be longer than that and he's probably headed into reserve so What does that mean I mean? Had you know from a fantasy site look for paramount. Because Winston's going to have to you. Who else is left? That's a blow. Be still my heart God. What has been the Horse Dr John? That's gotten me in the fantasy. Football finals beat up on her. Dear friend Clay Travis this past past week and in a massive showdown GonNa help that somebody else on my rosters able to step up and fill that void pain savior jokes. Because I know you're gonNA take cheap shots I'm not at all I'm not at all actually gonNA transition to another wide receiver with Adam Phelan. There was talks that he wasn't going to return until he was one hundred percent. Healthy Limited. Snap count this past against the chargers. What do you think that was maybe score or Israel setback therefore Adam feeling well? I think it's a original part of the plan in preparation. Maybe the seven snaps were only because of because of the score but he was never gonNA play fifty Think about it this way first of all if you look Ah. The history of what happened with Phelan was supposed to be a minor hamstring. You played it. Two weeks aggravated missed. Many more weeks. Try to come back to fast in in Practice aggravated again. So they've been burned twice with aggravation. Do you think they were GonNa be burned a third time when next week. They have the Monday night game against against the packers which is for the division and then even the week seventeen game against the division rival bears. This were the LA chargers not that you look past with them. But I don't care who it was only made medical sense to bring him back a little more slowly this type give them a few game raps so that he can and be good to go for the packers. I think you'll see. EEOC normal reps against the packers next week but there was no way he's going to see normal routes this week and so even when Schefter after said he was going to play and be fine. I never thought he would. But you know we all know coachspeak right. It's just another example of coachspeak another guy that's critical to the Vikings offensive successes. Delvin Cook suffered another shoulder. Injury couldn't return against the chargers. Obviously you mentioned the importance of the Monday night. Game against the packers will Delvin Cook play and if so how effective can you be. Well here's a good news. Bad News Bad news is he got hurt again and you didn't finish the game the bad news. It's actually a new injury and that's also the good news it's a new injury if it were the SC join again the right Septa. You'd have to say. Even when he plays against the packers he's one hit one play from being out against. This seems to be something to his left shoulder by video. I can't tell you exactly what it is. There's which sometimes good news because if he dislocated I could tell you. I don't think that's the case. I can't tell you exactly what he has. But it's new to the left shoulder and I think there is okay. Good chance I would expect that he will play and be good to go against the packers And I think that's part of where they said Look L.. Let us live to fight another day Dalvin and rest the rest of the game here in terms of feeling like they have a game in hand out in Los Angeles makes percents with a capable fill in like Mike. Boone had two touchdowns he actually had the second highest sparks score among running backs in two thousand eighteen draft only behind saquon so hard running running in athletic last Vikings Guy One ask you about. That's crucial to the defense's cornerback. Xavier Rhodes went into the chargers game with an ankle. Injury already played through it left left with what appeared to be a calf injury. Does he have a shot to play against Green Bay it's GonNa be hard Calf injuries linger CT Way Hilton. And uh-huh this even though he was GonNa want to at the quarterback position. It's pretty hard to break in driving the ball. If you don't have your staff there then you add the lingering ankle. I mean when you talk about multiple injuries and one of them being calf especially the positioning place as optimistic as I am on Dow Cook able to go. I'm not pessimistic and league's exist your roads being able to go last one. I want to ask you about beforehand it back to todd. The timeline probably doesn't work if it's a high ankle sprain but The seasons on the Line Right Philadelphia Dallas does lane. Johnson have a chance to play this week. I think he does first of all learning clean. Johnson Yasser Heikal Spring He might get some pre-game quote acupuncture to play area. I mean it's it's that big give a game and the other thing is he. You know Yes he's a tackle so he's a little more in space and I can guard. But but certainly it's easier to for a Lineman Wiedeman an offensive lineman to play through high ankle than some other skill position. So I think he's GonNa try everything you can to go. The question is If he can royal factor if you will be I think you're GONNA try all hands on deck type game coming up Sunday for the division and I know a lot of our board listeners Dr Chow who have been writing this Eagles Eagles train with the division future since the beginning of the season. So we'll all sit with wait and wait with bated breath as they go into that one against maybe resurgent cowboys team is short home underdogs but but before we get there. We do have a Monday night. Football game and clearly. The biggest injury around this contest is with. Ty held a lot of optimism through colts camp but you look through some of the lingering signs for T. Y.. Hilton this calf injury. Do you expect him to be able to give it a go tonight. And if if even tries how effective do you believe. He can be out there as a viable deep throat against the Saints Defense. Well you know. There's there's there's two two thoughts here the he will play thought and he won't play thought if you go by what the head coach says and very fulmer to him. Even Situation Frank Reich is if he plays on Monday. We'll be at one hundred percent. I E not playing short of a hundred percent. Well if that is actually true. He's not playing period. There's no way that cafeteria one hundred percent is lingered this long another couple of days. He's been full practice all all week and other days isn't GonNa Change Anything. There's no way he's hundred hundred percent for tonight's game. So we're going to stick to what Frank Reich really sad. Ty He's already told US T Y Hilton's not playing but we all know coachspeak and we all know this is. The colts is kind of last chance. They kind of have to win to stay in it to have any chance to stay in it so That may push what t y Hilton does and you may try. Try and go always interesting to see these guys and who's able to gut it out. As it becomes a war of attrition at this point in the season especially with playoff berths hanging in the balance team saw hang on for dear life in their respective conferences.

Jeremy Pruitt Compares Tennessee to 'Titanic' After 2 Players Leave Team
"The biggest story of the year to date in the SEC has been in Knoxville where Tennessee inexplicably has begun. Oh into Jeremy PRUITT. You heard a minute ago at his press conference but the biggest story in Knoxville today wasn't what he said at his press conference but what he said at the UH the Knoxville quarterback club John Adams joining US longtime columnist in Knoxville Knoxville John. Thank you for being here. Let's start with the the line at the the the quarterback club where he I'll let you fill in the blanks but he made some reference to the titanic good afternoon. Call I it should be in a coaching handbook somewhere where to a message to a struggling coach never bring up the titanic because we know how that story ended in Jeremy Pruitt with speaking to the quarterback club today. I wasn't there but he compared Tennessee to the titanic but he was relating it to a couple of players. quit the team last week. neither one was a prominent player they quit the team to loss to Georgia. Stay in. He compared that to the mice on the titanic running through the top of the ship which I think is a pretty good idea if I'm about I don't want to stay down there to bottom and drown at least get up to the top and maybe jump off if the boat and freeze to death but that seems like a better ending to me but I it just shows a lack of savviness so I think you just don't want to bring up the titanic padding because when people think about that Tadic they don't think about my think about an iceberg and people dying so I thought it was really odd. I I always thought they were rats too. But what do I know the difference between mice and Rafael you say my or I say my. Can you say rat so yeah okay. I thought it was too. That's it's getting a little too. Maybe maybe Jeremy say such a student of literature he was thinking about Steinbeck and of mice and then Maybe ending either by the way because of my thing coach okay. Let's get to the real the real crux of the issue John. I didn't think you would be in the situation where you're writing columns that people are studying examining trying to figure out where we're this program is and and she is a change imminent. I ask you I mean how bad is it. Where does this program go from here well. I I mean I think this is the worst right and there's been a lot of bad times he'd go back to two thousand and eight when Tennessee lost to Wyoming in a foreign aid. UCLA team and that's he's Got Phillip. Fulmer fired his coach but but to me despite what is what all is gone on coaches haven't lost two Sun Belt Conference team Georgia's state. It's a program that's ten years old and it's picked to finish near the bottom or at the bottom some of the sun belt. East so then the follow up that with a shocking loss the nature of the Paladin folded there the end to at best a mediocre a yoke. Byu Team MANHANDLE IN THE SECOND QUARTER GETS IN THE SECOND HALF AGAINST UTAH so no. I think you're at the bottom and I think it's fans. You can't help but look ahead and you wonder how can finish C. D. C. Gay okay you expect it to be Chattanooga this week an FCS program but beyond that you start looking at thank who'll Tennessee beat and what happens if Tennessee is one in six and I think that's a a reasonable projection at this point in Tennessee is one in six. How many people are showing up for these Games aims. I just think it would be a really bad look and it would be the critical stage program with day and it starts this week. noon game against Chattanooga. I I haven't

"Egypt's, first democratically elected president Mohamed Morsi has died after collapsing in court in Cairo. The sixty seven year old Fulmer Muslim Brotherhood leader was attending a hearing to answer charges of espionage. Mr. Moore, see of former engineering professor was elected in twenty twelve following the Arab spring, but a year later with Egypt gripped by mass protests, he was deposed by the army Rania Sambre in Cairo says his health had been concerned for some time as family had made repeated requests to the government to give more medical care and to allow them to visit him more often they were denied visiting him possibly for the first three years of his detention from two thousand and thirteen and the always complained of his medical condition, but let me add here that the medical care offered to prisoners in Egypt is always of very poor standard. So when it comes to medical care, in particular, it was not used as a punitive measure against the former Egyptian President, but rather it is the state in Japan, prisons, and that goes for thousands of prisoners, the Muslim Brotherhood has described his death as

What does the Freedom party scandal mean for Austria?
"Earlier this week, a video was released, which showed Australia's vice-chancellor conducting an unwisely amenable conversation with someone claiming to be connected to Russian money in the video shot on either in two thousand seventeen Heinz Christians rocker of the ultra-conservative Freedom Party appeared to be offering government contracts for political favors. He has now resigned and the Freedom Party has quit the government plunging Austrian politics into crisis. It is an extremely we'd scandal. Indeed verging on inexplicable, if you are a remotely sensible politician is only one rational response to any suggestion by anyone with a Russian accent, that quantity, rubles might be on offer in return for certain surreptitious services rendered that one sensible response. Is this stand up? Thank them for the drink and declared as loudly. And as clearly as possible in the direction of any lamp shades handbags that might be secrete. Eating cameras that you are. Absolutely not interested. Not now not ever. Not for the first time angry. Populists have demonstrated themselves temperamentally unsuited to actual governance. Can Austria's chancellor Sebastian Kurz survive this and seeing as how he brought these dubious far-right Yahoos into power does he deserve to this is the foreign desk? He tried to distance himself from this a little bit, and tried to portray himself as having been sort of transformed, but that infect was not completely true and could took one and a half years. Now to say that this is really enough. And he didn't do this. I mean this video just showed too much of the moon face of his coalition partners. You don't have to take very far to understand that Russian money per meets European politics in a really big way. Loads of Russian money makes its way into European parties through think tanks through various kind of campaign. Pledges. There is a huge problem post himself as somebody who suffered who week demised himself for the nation for the country. But this is sorry to say nonsense, because it was him who built this collision, it was also him who would have had so many possibilities and options to say something nobody told him to suffer. You're listening to the foreign desk with me, Andrew Miller on today's show. We'll take a detailed look at the scandal, which has both up ended and bewildered. Australian politics and ask, if there is a lesson here for voters elsewhere, in Europe, considering supporting populist outsiders, like, for example, don't but I currently of Monaco's correspondent in Vienna outlines what has become known as I beat the gate. It's hard to convey to the outside world, the extent to which the scandal has gripped the Australian imagination everyone who was talking about it in every cafe in every home up enough to guess drinking video was, he comes Alexandrian, a quarter of the population watch that historic speech by chancellor Sebastian courts last Saturday. The one where he said that enough was enough skin. Skin is and that was in the same night as Eurovision and in the spirit of vision. The scandal has given a new lease of life to this nine thousand nine hundred nine hit song by the she adults group, Bengals gets cold. We're going to be, so it's at the top of the charts in Australia. Why? Well. Because of course it was on that Spanish on that the secret video was recorded. Seriously, though, the video came as a complete bombshell, but the fact that it was the Freedom Party, the FBI mass down. So spectacularly was actually not that surprising until compared to if the social Democrats and the conservatives have long very long tradition on their values on their ideology on their programmatic basis, and this is quite different to f f is a party that opposes and not creates. And this is one answer why they always fail by themselves, did Luke was a spokesperson for the former conservative chancellor, Vulcan Schuessel, who also led a coalition government with the F the in the early two thousands. She was that, when that government collapsed would say their challenge is not being. A responsible party who governs? It's more being a party of the opposition. And this is a different role and blow up. It was their own failure. It was not the failure by others. Nobody would think about having another if a if a coalition for the next future. So I think they really knocked out themselves. Is in trouble then. So is the of a pay the conservatives, but things could go either way for them. It all depends on whether their leader chancellor courts survives the no confidence vote on Monday courses being under five using the fat his own ends, and Fulmer coalition with the F the fest place. His public statements have the past week. Have also come in for some criticism. He post himself as somebody who, who suffered two week demise himself for the nation for the country. But this is I'm sorry to say nonsense, because it was him who built this nation it was him. Baba taught is reporter working for the Viennese weekly defaulter, the only Australian publication that was given access to this talk video before it was released. She's written a biography of court since she's been watching his behavior in the public's reaction stood closely Ostrom people. They're beginning to scrutinize in to deconstruct would he's doing because. It's, it's easy now to see. I'm the anchor and I will guarantee stability, but people are beginning to ask, who's he takes responsibility for this crisis, and that's him. So it's going to be not so easy for him to have the same run during the election. Like trees Sebastian codes loses the no confidence vote on Monday. He'll remain the most popular politician in the country. But what does all this mean for the? All the all fall ride going to slip from political infamy into political obscurity. Alost word from baba told no Mike, my answer would be no. Because we believe experienced the end of the F in the beginning of two thousand to two thousand three some thought, it's the end in the one thousand nine hundred eighty s so I would be very careful to say. It's the end let's, let's remember, do not Trump during his campaign when this recording. When pop Nick, where he talked about what he does with women, and everybody was shock. Then everybody thought this is going to be the end of Donald Trump. And he was he was elected. Similar to this. I think it can even help to mobilize Motus, who will see the effects, the something.

Sudanese protesters, military council say talks 'fruitful'
"First, let's cross to the story breaking in Sudan today. This is that Sudan's main opposition group says it's reached a deal with the ruling transitional military council to Fulmer joint transitional government, a member of the opposition's negotiating team described the development as positive and the protests organizes, the Sudanese professionals association said the talks would resume on Sunday to decide the number of civilian and military members of the sovereign council. Let's cross to Peyton now as an advisor to the United States institute of peace and full Merican diplomats as well. Based in Khartoum he's currently in Berlin pace. Thank you foot. For joining us. I you up to mystic as well that this is real progress in Sudan. I mean, it's certainly seems to be a step forward. But it's early days. I think there are two key questions Rebecca that will have to watch closely. The first is whether the military and security services are prepared to be subordinate to the civilian elements of this transition. Which has been a key demand of the demonstrators. And the second is the length of this transition in what would come next and how it's how it transitions to a full civilian authority 'cause of people are looking at the situation in Sudan and remembering back to two thousand eleven and what happened with the IRA spring. Where have the Sudanese protest is got it. Right. This time. I think what we've seen is remarkable not just ability to organize clearly in mass numbers across different socioeconomic and ethnic groups in different parts of the country. But also, a incredible degree of restraint in terms of not pushing for example, a rush towards elections, and that could be further destabilising. I think there's also been a clear signal from the Sudanese demonstrators against foreign intervention for its own ends and reticence to go down the path of other countries, Libya, Syria. Elsewhere were foreign influence and intervention has religious better recipe for fragmentation within those

Roads to success: Indonesias election
"Indonesians votes today in vast election, a mammoth effort in the world's third largest democracy with a hundred eighty seven million voters choosing local regional and national officials including the president. The incumbent president Joko Widodo known as Jacoby held rallies. All over the country. He came to power five years ago, promising reform development and an end to corruption his bid for a second term is something of a referendum on what's been dynamic presidency. His main opponent is former general provoke SU Bianco. The Bill will tends to appeal to more conservative Indonesians. But both candidates have tried to seem in touch with rapidly urbanizing people wanting a better life while also speaking to the conservative wing of the country's Muslim majority. Young people in the capital Jakarta seemed clear about their preference. The program made the unique. Up in a shopping mall who treat who's patisserie who's nineteen. So she's quite happy with the incoming president. He has a program to help the elderly. She says and he goes into the field a reference to his tendency to visit ordinary Indonesians and ask them about their concerns. And breathe will begin to who's thirty-three says jacuzzis opponent, the former general reminds him more of autocratic leaders from Indonesia's repressive past and that he'd be a step backwards. People in Indonesia thing that this presidency has has gone the well guy Scriven reports for the economist from south East Asia, he's been all over Indonesia's many islands asking people about how politics affects their lives Jacoby came into power in two thousand fourteen with his plan to spend over three hundred billion dollars launch building thousands of kilometers of roads, and railways, and it means a lot more to people than just being able to get for me to be more quickly when I was in East Java. I spoke to a restaurant owner who told me that the roads built in his local area had out farmers to get their produce to market much more quickly without the food perishing in in the control heat when I was in kind of West Kalimantan last year spoke to teach and she told me that a road which had been built in the past few years had allowed her pupils to get to town. Acre an intern those university. And so as a result more of a people's will kind of applying to two university. So so so roads mean kind of, you know, all sorts of all sorts of different things to lots of different Indonesians. But let's go off route. If you will what other sort of signature achievements has has Jacoby got to claim he's on the set of policies have been aimed at reducing poverty. So these include things like kind of more scholarships for poor families for two to pay for that children to get into school as well as giving more money to the to the kind of villages, probably the most popular of his anti-poverty measures is a large expansion in in health insurance. And so now almost over two hundred million Indonesians have gone some kind of health insurance cover aunt from about one hundred thirty million in two thousand fourteen right? And with a raft of kind of people. Accomplishments like that he must be he must be doing pretty well in the poll. Absolutely. Yeah. His approval ratings are very high and always have been throws presidency. And in the in the pose he's twenty percentage points on average kind of a head of his opponent. And so with all these achievements behind him is is there anything that sort of dragging Jacoby down anything that worries people about him? Or is it just all happy news? No, it's I mean, it's not all it's not over as combining means people of basically being worried about Chicago. He's attempts to ensure that he gets reelected, and and some of the ways he's gone about that he's being raw the kind of intolerant of dissent. He the police have shut down various kind of opposition movement marches and rallies. They've also rested. Several opposition leaders since January on what looked like quite flimsy charges. So Jacoby his also been strengthening ties with the. Military. He's brought into his innocence cool several Fulmer kind of military generals who were very powerful during the Suharto dictatorship which run from nineteen sixty seven to nineteen ninety eight and was kind of deeply autocratic state where the military held a huge amount of power maskco. He's been kind of cozying up to to these figures on top of this. He's also been trying to shore up his his support base with MS limbs, he's chosen as running mater are hard line of misled cleric who has kind of raw raw, the conservative views, and who is in favor of implementing Islamic law throughout the country, and as what kind of banning homosexual acts and outlawing kind of minority Muslim groups what this means is that lots of people who saw Jacoby as kind of social reformer I've become very disappointed by. By the way, he's proceeded and how does that play out regionally? I mean, a lot of a lot of these tensions maybe present also in sort of, you know, countries in the region how how important this election. More broadly. The election is is very important, more broadly. I mean, partly because Indonesia's you're such a big country. It's got two hundred and sixty five million people. It is in the top ten economies in the world when you take into account purchasing power parity. It's also kind of the biggest missile country in the world. It's it's not a country, which has a very outward-looking all of loud or boisterous foreign policy, but it is important. So people have some calls for concern, but not so much as to to outweigh people's sort of how pleased people are with how Jayco he's done. That's right. That's right. The other the other option in the election of proposal Biondo is is quite a kind of distasteful figure for for various reasons. He's also accused of committing various human rights atrocities in the in the dying days of this Harto era. He would be more economically interventionist, STAN, nationalist, and doesn't really have a kind of set of well-thought-out policies as as Jacoby does. So the the argument can afford your carry despite to the all the negative things that he's been doing has is really that. You know, he is a better choice than pro. And also that his pro poor policies and. It's kind of infrastructure spending really seem to be working. Well, and so voters are are heading to the polls have headed to the polls today how long until we know the outcome. And and what's the what's the feeling been like so Indonesia's a generally excited to those? They've only had democracy really for the last twenty years or so, and they that that that they see it as a very proud to be able to go on cost ballot and a very excited about doing. So the election commission shoot release the kind of initial estimates tomorrow, and and that should give a good sense of on the presidential and hopefully as well how the fun of political parties have done in in the legislative election. Well in the meantime, enjoy the fear of people enjoying their

Netanyahu fights for a fifth term in office
"Today. We're looking at the Israeli election and joining me on the line from Tel Aviv is correspondent there Malhotra vast Uva and in studio Middle East editor Andrew England metal first of all were about a week away from polling. It's a lively time, isn't it? Because Benjamin Netanyahu was in Washington receiving kind of benediction from Donald Trump, and then had to return suddenly to Israel, can you summarize what's been happening in the last week or so there's been a very exciting last week or so for one looks like one of the most exciting is really election than a long time. Nothing. Yahoo is neck and neck with a brand new party to doom exist more than a month ago called the blue and white party and for him to hold onto his right-wing bays mission with an Yahoo has to emphasize his security credentials and his connection with the White House and the last three or four days we're supposed to be just that supposed to be a victory lap. He was going to go to the White House. He was going to be greeted by his friend. President Donald Trump, and he would receive a document that says Americans recognize Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights. Something the right-wing here has wanted for a long time. But just as he landed in the US and just as the global victory lap as you may call it began an attack from the HAMAS-controlled on plea with Gaza through all the plans into disarray. He decided to cut his trip short and come back here. So he can lead. Whatever response is really government comes up with to the sudden esscalation from unprovoked rockets from Gaza, and so we've had a week of almost complete chaos and a lack of direction from the two leading candidates. But in a sense, obviously hard to gate how these things play. But if the prime minister Netanyahu is relying on the security card doesn't attack from HAMAs possibly help him you'd think so except Gaza has proven to be the prime minister's achilles heel for the last year or so instead of being able to push for a longer. Term ceasefire something called a food snob by HAMAs. He has been looking for the short opportunity to kick the can down the road through concessions that are granted do HAMAs in order to stop protests to stop these haphazard rocket attacks or to hold back any of these so-called terror balloons, where young men in Gaza are attaching multiple cocktails, basically, the bottom of balloons and letting them fly into Israeli territory. So it's turned into a bit of a successful blackmail on the side of HAMAs. An achilles heel for Netanyahu and a reminder two weeks right before elections that he's not able to bring the kind of calm that he promises he'll bring. He's not exactly looking really good for him. And Andrew, of course, the other background is that he goes into this election with this corruption probe and deep potential prosecution hanging over his head. Yeah. That's correct. He would be the first sitting prime minister to be indicted. If the attorney general to the it we should say, whilst the attorney general has announced his intention to indict him, the prime minister still has the right to appeal. Appeal that sort of a pay before a hearing and argue against him being indicted, but it is just quite a lot of uncertainty. The closest the race was unexpected a few months ago, the fatten that Netanyahu could be indicted. And then if he does manage to succeed and full Moco, listen off the election and retain the prime ministership, then they'll be a period of uncertainty as the legal process plays out. So I think it kind of ended period of uncharted territory for Israel in terms of the politics will be promised. You haven't seen for decayed, and my whole is it your impression that the corruption allegations have damaged him. I think that what has happened over here is that when the crops in ligations were first aired two years ago. There was a possibility that you'd see a large amount of votes shifts, simply because of the allegations that evidence that came out, but in the last two or three years, prime minister has marshalled is very loyal base into a judiciary versus a right-wing argument that has made especially in terms of voting patterns the announcement of this intention to indict him have Velu Iliffe. On how his base will vote. But it's create an opportunity for the opposition to say, well, look, it's time to change horses. This is our chance to bring in a fresh slate. And it's energized them in a way that they were not so in previous elections. So while it's impossible to say that he's lost votes. It has certainly made him vulnerable in terms of the narrative, and in terms of the messaging as he goes into the elections Netanyahu likes to project himself as a man astride Israeli politics a man above it. All instead now, he's on the defensive and no politician likes to be in that position. And Andrew I mean, what do we make of the opposition? Because the leader Benny is new to politics. He's very much a political neophyte, and we don't really have a clear idea of his policies. We know he's a former chief of staff with the Israeli defense forces, and that's in the past Rabin brek Fulmer chiefs of stars who became prime minister. So that's not unusual, but internally his policy he's kind of giving mixed messages on the one hand, he said, you know, he would never get. The golden heights the occupies Syrian territory, and he's used videos of war against HAMAs in Gaza as part of his election campaign on the other hand. He's also said that you know, there's no shame in striving for peace. He can play the whole cash hard man military figure on the one hand. But he's indicating perhaps he could take a softer stance on the peace process Netanyahu. We just really don't know. I mean, he is applicable neophytes. He said it's only in the last few weeks that he's put together this party. So he's very much an unknown quantity. In terms of what his politics would be. I think and meanwhile, my whole I guess the traditional left parties in Israel being fucking put it that way left behind them in labor is well behind in third, and I gathered the main sort of left party merits may not even make parliament. It's a motive complete decimation for labor, which is if you're the party that founded this country and had towering leaders like, you know, he's

Move To Pull Consumer Protection Rule Heightens Debate Over Payday Lending
"Support for this podcast and the following message. Come from almond board of California, did, you know almond orchards bloom before most other plants and help honeybee hives grow stronger before they pollinate other late blooming crops, grow what you know at almondsustainability dot org. Some people rely on borrowing money from themselves you get a payday loan. It's cash you promised to pay back when your next paycheck arrives. The Trump administration has been scaling back in force -ment of this industry and Kathy creditor who runs the consumer financial protection bureau will likely be asked why when she testifies before a house panel today, here's NPR's Daniel Chesler. Oh. This is the sound of a payday loan cash. You can get quickly just by walking into a store, I met this Springfield Virginia branch of advance America during a rainy lunch hour and a woman who works as a medical assistant comes in. I borrow three hundred interest is seventy three dollars. Angela who asked us to only use her first name to protect her privacy is getting a thirty day loan to cover a family trip to New York. She says she prefers payday loan because she doesn't trust herself with credit cards. It's convenient and quick all Angela had to do a show her ID and write a check for the day the loan was due. She brought in a Bank statement and a pay stub to get her first loan, but she's taken out a few since then about two a year, we provide consumers from all across the country with the ability to access money when they need it. Most the very model of the loan is batik out as much money from the bars Bank account until that inevitable default. That's the industry view from Jamie Fulmer. At advance America, which has nine thousand nine hundred payday lending branches. And a critical perspective from Scott Astrada the center for responsible lending, a consumer advocacy group. And this is the heart of the debate behind a rule drawn up under the Obama administration that never took effect. The rule would require payday lenders to make sure borrowers are able to repay their loans. Angela is confident she can pay this loan back. Even though the interest rate works out to three hundred percent over the course of a year. The CFP be researched this issue in a two thousand fourteen report it found half of all payday loans are in a sequence at least ten loans long with spiraling costs to borrowers. And that's why the bureau created the rule under former director Richard cordray. He says the agency's mission has changed the new leadership at the see of PB has been much less aggressive about doing things that press hard on the industry to change in ways that help consumers Democrats to control. Of the house, and they oppose rescinding this payday loan rule. Consumer advocates say the rule is vital. So to veterans groups the N W C P says quote, payday lenders have long preyed upon communities of color, but Quinn Trung who served as deputy general counsel at the CFP ender. Obama says banks have tighter criteria than other lenders for small dollar amounts sometimes borrowers. Don't have good enough credit to qualify for credit cards under the current rules. She says there's the possibility that some segments of the population don't have very good alternatives to the payday product. She says the rule would have posed an existential threat to the industry and some lenders had already shut down. Intimidating the impact. Angela the borrower. I spoke to says she's grateful the rule may not take affect I'm happy. They have this. I can actually get alone and be able to pay them back easily in have extra money with the little bit of interest. But is able to pay it back. She's actually pays. Loans back early to save on interest. But payday lenders in most states don't offer discounts for customers who pay early and the CFP CFP's own research shows, many borrowers get trapped by debt with no change in regulation that will continue to be a problem.

Europe without Merkel
"We're looking at Germany. What Chancellor Angela Merkel has announced her decision to step down as leader of the ruling, Christian Democrats. So all we know entering the post Merckel era. And what might it look like joining me on the line from Berlin is up euro chief there guys on in here in the studio as European editor Ben home die. First of all. What's this a surprise? Mrs Merkel's decision to step down. It was actually a surprise. Everybody was watching very carefully the elections in Hesse, which is one of the states in west Germany. They have elections on Sunday, and the CD you the Christian Democratic Union. Michael's party had been doing incredibly badly in the polls. And on the night. They all said did extremely badly their vote share shrank by eleven percentage points, but they actually scraped through which meant that they were able to stay in power and renew their coalition with the greens. And not even after bring in any coalition party. He's so actually the result was nowhere near as bad as some people had been expecting. I mean, there had been even suggestions that the government might have been voted out of office in that direction. It didn't happen. Now if that eventuality had happened everybody was expecting that Michael would step down. But the fact that the CPU clung to power meant. Indeed, I wrote myself it looked like she dodged the bullet despite that she decided to stand down. And that was the thing that surprised everybody that she squeaked through and Ponzi and squeak through and still she decided to stand down. And yet she's also said she intends or light to stay on as chancellor until twenty twenty one. But at the same time, there's now a contest onto lead the CD you so is her position tenable d think and who's emerging as the front runner for the CD you. Well, everything depends on who is elected party leader. Because there are three candidates who've declared one of them is Michael's anointed to add RS, rather undergrad. Cramped Cowan Bauer who's the current secretary general of the you now she is very much Marcle clone. She's very loyal to the chancellor, and she generally has a similar kind of agenda to her. She's very popular in the party. And she is odds on favor of the moment to win. But there are two others who declared Jens bond, the health minister and free with mounts who is a former head of the parliamentary group, and he is a real ideological industry of Michael's and spun this to now if either spun or Mets win, then all bets are off no one really expense medical to be able to survive as chancellor till two thousand twenty one till the next elections. If either Mansell spun our elected posse leader, it would just be completely impossible combination. She would understand that as well. And there's no way that she would persist in trying to cling onto the job of chancellor if one of. Ideological rivals gets the party leadership say ideological rivals. What are the key splits? Welsh fawn for example, walls, her most ferocious critic during the whole refugee crisis. He really was very outspoken against her sort of liberal policy of keeping Germany's borders open during the crisis, which led to an influx of more than a million migrants as we know mainly from the Middle Eastern North Africa. He's been very very critical of that. He's very very hard line on the fact that these people now have to integrate, and if they don't then they should be kicked out. He's sort of taking a very hotline. So almost like AFDC line alternates of Germany, this all the sort of anti immigration line. Although I must say since he became a minister became health minister in March. He's hot down a bit Matt's. Also, he was always very strongly opposed to Merckel and the way she essentially pushed the party to the left or to the the centre-left of German politics bay. Basically, he represents disgruntled older generation in although he's not so old himself. But he'd represents that sort of group of conservatives women the who have resented the way Mackel has tried to modernize the party. They wanted to return to its conservative roots? Now, Ben, obviously one of the characteristics of the Merckel era is that Germany's become more and more. Evidently, the dominant force inside the European Union. So the rest of Europe will be watching this with considerable interest and perhaps some nervousness. Yes. I mean, once again, European is a sort of bystanders to German domestic politics, which is becoming all too familiar. Pose for the last several years through the eurozone crisis. Of course, you could remember moments of critical decision making that depended on voices and debates like in the Bundestag in Berlin. I'm sure leaders across the continental watching incredibly closely to see what comes out of the CD you leadership contest. And then the stability of the government. If mocal really wants to stay till twenty twenty one it's quite likely that will have lots more instability, particularly within the grand coalition from the SPD. So this may well be a German government that does very little the next three years, which will be bad news for your how bad though, I mean, can you actually cope with a period of stasis where nothing much happens? Yes. It could I suppose I've just been in Paris. And I think there's a very strong French view, for example, that this is actually quite a benign period of relative economic growth. And actually, this is the time precisely the time to fix problems, particularly in the yours in for the next crisis, which may not be not far away. And I suppose the other big threat. Of course, he's the populist insurgency, which is really gaining traction across the continent. And I think certainly the view in Paris is that Europe can't afford to just sit there and do nothing has to move, and it has to respond to try and galvanize citizens behind sort of more pro European position and to try and sort of quell this. Insurgency? But I guess the reality is isn't a guy that even under the pretty pro-european. Centrist, Mrs Merkel, the German government had been pretty disappointing as far as the French concerned in responding to some of these more ambitious plans for European integration. Yes. Absolutely. I mean, I think one of the big surprises in a way has been the performance of Schultz. The finance minister here when the coalition treaty was hammered out between the city and the PD in February March that was a very strong European chat to that. Which was basically written by the Fulmer SPD leader Martin Schulz who was himself a former president of the European parliament. It was incredibly strongly pro European very idealistic really sort of buying into the whole macro Mian vision of reform and what's happened since. Then obviously, it was Martin Schulz was kicked out and the currently does, AVI. SP a Turkey not interested in European. Reform more yours and reform all of Schultz's just down to be sort of pale imitation of Wolfgang showing blah in fact, lacking showing blows vision of European integration. So he's been a big disappointment for those who are really hoping that the new German Grand coalition would respond to microns of reform proposals in a positive way. So if anything I suspect, then Ben a new Germany would become actually more introverted because the best you could hope for its continuity from European point of view with a look alike, but if it were spun type figure, you would have a headset used what nationalistic, but a more conservative, more, Germany. I approach I think that's probably right. I mean angular mogul has been chancellor for thirteen years. She's a set at Europe's top table for that long. And even though she has a self been incredibly cautious and conservative in the way that she's handled a lot of European questions. She does have a very strong kind of European. Instinct and sensibility, which perhaps successes won't have to agree that possibly the next chancellor is going to be less pro European than angular Merckel. I suppose the thing that we have to remember though, is that they're not going to be that Euro-sceptic Germany is still a pro European country. It's still very much in Germany's national interests to want to strong Europe. And I don't see us Manipur from the far, right? Fringe with the rise of alternative for Deutschland. Which by the way, looks like it might be plateauing anyway in public support. I don't see a huge shift to the right on the big European question in Germany, and I guess the irony is that even if Germany is losing some of its traditional europhilia, it's never been more powerful in Europe and more central to what's happening inside the and that will only be essentially with Brexit. Oh, that's certainly true, especially with Italy locked in a showdown with Brussels and other Member States and intentions with the east Spain, which seems to. To be fairly politically weak and Britain. Obviously leaving the big question is whether Emmanuel Macron can recover popularity in France, and whether he can bring his reforms to bear to convince Germany and convince public opinion on political opinion in Germany that reform is for real. And therefore, you know, Germany should take his ideas for your zone reform, for example, more seriously and finally guy I mean, maybe it's a little bit too soon to be writing the victories for the mobile era. But what do you think she will be remembered for him and she's been in power long time? I think essentially she'll be remembered for many things I mean, it's interesting when people sort of looked back they look at the great chance of Germany's postwar history people like Konrad Adenauer who really anchored Germany in the western lines helmet Kohl who achieved German reunification, and it's interesting. You know, she's been chancellor for thirteen years. And when you ask people, so what is she going to be remembered for people? Struggled to come up with announcer. And the funny thing is that a lot of people think it and Haman Han than say, the refugee crisis and actually that in a way might be a lasting legacy. I mean, I think she would resent that because it wasn't a hit finest hour. But I think in many ways the fact that she stood up for the idea of open borders for the idea of humanitarianism and for the liberal world order in a way in her response to that crisis. I think that says a lot about her. And I think also says a lot about how she changed Germany because I think that approach would never have happened before she had become chancellor, the German response to the refugee crisis. Will I think be remembered in decades to come as an extraordinary moment in recent European history and Harada was absolutely critical.
