Free speech and the struggle against misinformation ahead of 2020 election
"Last week, The New York Post published a potentially damaging story about Hunter Biden, son of the Democratic presidential nominee. Based on emails, The Post said, were provided by former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani and originally harvested from a laptop computer left in a Delaware repair shop. There were enough questions about the authenticity of the emails that most mainstream media declined to publish the story, but it's the kind of content that Khun spread like wildfire on Social media. In a remarkable move Twitter on Wednesday Band users from sharing links to the story because it said the emails may have been hacked and contained private information. It reversed course two days later after Republicans accused Twitter of censorship. But the episode illustrates a question our guest, Emily Bazelon, has been thinking about in an age when questionable, Perhaps even fabricated content can sweep through the digital world unchecked. Does our traditional commitment to unfettered free speech still serve democracy. And the cover story for this week's New York Times Magazine, Basil on surveys the impact that lies and conspiracy theories sometimes promoted by foreign actors can have on our political discourse. And she explores how other countries think differently about free speech and its relationship to a healthy democracy. Emily Bazelon is a graduate of the Yale Law School and a journalist. She's a staff writer for the New York Times Magazine and the Truman Capote fellow for Creative Writing at Yale Law School. She's also the author of two books. She joins us from her home in New Haven, Connecticut. Emily Bazelon welcome back to fresh air. Thanks so much for having me you open your piece with a story that began making the rounds some months back, among right wing voices on the Internet that there was a plan by the forces of Joe Biden to stage a coup to take over the government in connection with the November election. First of all, what was the basis of this claim? Great. So this is ahh concocted claim and the sort of colonel at the center of it was a project called the Transition Integrity Project, a group of about 100 academics and journalists and pollsters and former government officials and former campaign the staff staffers. They started meeting over the summer to kind of game out various scenarios for the November election, and so they were basically testing American democracy in the event that President Trump wins in the event that vice President Biden winds To see in various scenario is what could happen. And in the event, there's a contestant result in a long, nasty count. Yes, exactly especially in the event if there's a contestant result in litigation and other possibilities, and so in one of their several scenarios, Biden wins the popular vote but loses the Electoral College. And so in that hypothetical case they imagined the Democrats would get desperate. And they might consider encouraging California and the Pacific Northwest to threaten to secede in exchange for pressuring Republicans to expand the size of the Senate. So Rosa Brooks, who was one of the organizers of this project, She's a law professor at Georgetown. She published an essay where she mentioned this threat to succeed in one sentence in an essay in The Washington Post. On the next day, you see someone named Michael Anton's, a former national security adviser to President Trump. He has an article called The Coming CU Question. Mark and based on Rosa Brooks is characterization of what the transition integrity project was doing. He starts saying that Democrats are laying the groundwork for a revolution and then you see that article take off in extremist online communities. There is AH podcast maker named Dan Bongino, who's a big trump supporter. He makes videos about it. One of them has the tag. They are telling you what they are going to do exclamation point his videos pull in millions of views. Then you see the story. My great toe, a right wing website called Revolver News Revolver. News starts to spin up the idea that Norm Eisen, who participated in the transition Integrity project and is a longtime Democratic lawyer in Washington. That he's at the center of this supposed coup. And from there, Tucker Carlson feature someone talking about this concocted made up story on his show. And then you see it just go viral on social media and get picked up by lots of groups, including, like a county Republican organization in Oregon, So it is Perfect kind of story because it pulls in both traditional media in the form of Fox and also social media. And then you see President Trump get involved. He tweets in praise of Revolver news, and then he tweets quote the November 3rd election result may never be accurately determined, which is what some want. And that's a kind of typical dark, slightly vague, foreboding kind of warning from President Trump that further perpetuates this coup narrative. And then Trump later retreat. Someone talking about a coup with regard to Nancy Pelosi. So you see from this hypothetical project that was really meant to be a kind of academic exercise about the election. This whole sat of conspiracy theories on the right that get a lot of play in the media on social media, and then from the president

New Law Mandates California To Study The Issue Of Reparations For Slaves' Descendants
"This is all things considered from NPR news. I'm Mary Louise Kelly and I'm Elsa Chang in January. 18 65 As the Civil war staggered into its final months, the US made a promise. It would take for 100,000 acres of confiscated southern lands stretching from South Carolina to Florida and redistribute it to formerly enslaved black people in 40 acre parcels. Well, that order did not last long. Within the year, Lincoln's replacement president, Andrew Johnson, broke that promise and handed the land back to plantation owners. That was the nation's first systematic attempt to provide reparations for slavery. More recently, the late Michigan congressman John Conyers, tried and failed for nearly three decades. Yet Congress to consider the same issue. Now California has taken Conyers bill and used it as an inspiration for a new bill signed into law last week. It is the first state law of its kind. California Assemblywoman Shirley Weber is the author of that Bill, and she joins us Now. Welcome. Thank you. It's good to be here. Good to have you So what this new law does is basically set up a task force to study the issue of reparations for the descendants of enslaved people and To make further recommendations from there. Tell me what are you hoping to see? Come out of this task force. Well, I think they're a couple of things we hope will happen. Obviously, we hope there will be a number of recommendations on what the state needs to do in order to repair the damage that's been done. But hopefully in addition to that, we will have robust conversations about the really deep and long and pervasive impact of slavery and racism in California and across the nation. I talked to too many people who tell me I'm not a slave holder. I didn't I didn't own any slaves. What does that mean to me? Well, you may not have owned them, but the impact of your forefathers owning them. As what is the impact of the various laws and limitations placed upon African Americans That made it difficult, if not impossible, for them to compete educationally and economically and socially still has its lingering impact, and we see that in the streets today, we'll give us some concrete examples of what form Might these reparations take Well, you know, it could be like it is a Georgetown where those folks who was slaves that landed Georgetown, every descendant of those individuals now could have access and free education of Georgetown. We could look at the issue of loans and grants for people starting businesses, and we have businesses that are suffering and sometimes failing in this pandemic. Because of our let the lack of support and financing that made it almost difficult, if not impossible, for them to own land and only businesses. We need to look at housing patterns. California had some very, very racist housing patterns that existed. But they're they're number of things that need to exist and to indicate that is tremendous amount of damage was done and puts California on the hook as well, because he basically California was a free state, right. A lot of people don't think of California as a slave state, but exactly what role California did play when it came to slavery. Well, we had one of most racist governors who talked about removing all black people from state of California free or slaves. We created laws that prevented them from being able to testify in court against white person. We had lots of things embedded in our land ownership that prevents folks from buying or selling homes to African Americans. All of those things are important, as they began to say, is this wide African Americans continue to struggle have the least amount of wealth amassed have low homeownership, all those kinds of things that even after generations and generations of struggle. We still find that these things prevail. And even though a few sneak through the vast majority do not Now let me ask you dealing with the legacy of slavery is an issue that this entire country needs to reckon with. So there are a lot of people say, Let's look to a federal solution. How would you respond to that? Well, we have We lived for federal solution for 30 to 40 years. At this point, it's just not happening at the federal level. And so after waiting, we said, You know what California could do this? And I've governor said, You know what we can lead the way and that we think will motivate others to do. Likewise, California state Assemblywoman Shirley Weber was the author of a new state law to study reparations for slavery. Thank you very much, thank you for the opportunity.
Floridians With Felony Convictions Must Pay Fines Before They Can Vote

Dr. Abigail Marsh on changing your relationship with fear
"Hey guys. There is sadly no shortage of fear these days fear of the virus. Climate change racial injustice, political ties. I could go on, but here's the question. Can you change the way your brain reacts to fear. Moreover can you train courage Abigail Marsh says, yes overcoming fear is a trainable skill. She's an associate professor in the Department of Psychology and the interdisciplinary neuroscience program at Georgetown University. She's also the author of the book fear factor how one emotion connects altruistic. Paths and everyone in between. This is in my opinion, a classic T. P. H. podcast conversation and Ace scientist whose area of expertise illuminates key aspects of the human condition I really enjoyed this. Hope you will to go. Abigail Marsh. Nice to meet you. Thanks for doing this. Absolutely it's a pleasure. So how did you get interested in fear? That's a great question. So my initial interest in social psychology, which is the discipline I have my degree in was because I'm interested in facial expressions and nonverbal communication in general, but how people communicate with one another And a little research had been done over the years about why facial expressions look the way they do. And I find that a particular interesting topic because they do look remarkably consistent across cultures, which just said there's something evolved and at least partly eight about them. And that's really amazing. Right I mean. It's one of the key piece of evidence that broke the back of radical behaviorisms decades ago. That emotional expressions are interpreted across cultures. It must be really important of that's true. and. Some people had spent a lot of time looking at. The reason that angry expressions look a particular way or happy expressions but nobody touched fear fear such fundamental emotion. It seems really important to know why we would communicate to each other and how people interpret it in other people. And it really was a flash bulb moment it was based on the combination of courses I was taking as Undergrad where it occurred to me that the reason that fearful expressions look the way they do is to elicit support and care from people who see them because they mimic the appearance of infantile face. Big Is. High Big is the very surrounded appearance lower face and they make you look infantile and that. Particular connection can help us understand so much about our nature as a social species what emotions are for what kinds of social behavior we can expect from other people around us that one observation really has a lot of implications. So I was kind of expecting you to say that you had some lifelong struggle with fear. But in fact, it sounds more like a academic interests well. I mean, you know the saying research is research I'm sure I mean I wouldn't have had lifelong struggle with fear but I would sam probably above average in terms of capacity for anxiety and I've certainly had experiences where I was frightened for my life. and. Had the good fortune to be helped by other people around me and so I'm one hundred percent certain that that made me interested in this topic to begin with. Are those things you're comfortable discussing Oh sure I. Mean it's not only one thing but certainly, the most important relevant event is the event that happened when I was nineteen when I was in a car accident on a big freeway in Washington state interstate five. And as I was driving over a bridge to get back to my hometown late at night. I swerved to avoid a little dog that ran in front of my car and the combination of swerving unfortunately hitting the anyways semi car into these fish tails and eventually donuts across the freeway. And wound up stranded in the fast lane of the freeway on the overpass with no way of escaping a no phone and cars and semis winning by me so fast, they were making my car shake. I was sure I'm GonNa die I mean I was one of those things you know they tell you time slows down when you're feeling intense fear. That's true. I know why I didn't know I then four and I really didn't know what to do. I was going to die tell stranger appeared next to my car having as I later figured out run across the freeway again in the dark to rescue somebody never met before. Key got my car. He figured out why? I. Couldn't get my car back on he threatened his way through the barrage of oncoming traffic to get us back across the freeway and then he just disappeared. He's like you know do you need me to follow you look so good I'm like, no no, all the okay. I'll be okay and he said Okay you carry yourself them an off. Into night I still to this day don't think. Thank you. I. Don't know anything about who he is and I know that. I owe Himalayas and really inexorably changed the way that I think about people and social behavior. Well, it's a dramatic story and actually connects to the thesis to the extent that I understand it of your book. Let me just repeat the title which I will have. Stated in the introduction the fear factor how one emotion connects altruism psychopaths and everyone in between. This is an example of extreme altruism that you just shared with us without a doubt He absolutely risked his life to save me. He deserved a medal for what he did at the very least. And what's so interesting about people like him as there is a really common tendency to assume that people who have things to help others are fearless. You hear that board used all the time but the reference to heroes and. But my research has shown is that that's absolutely not true that actually there's a really much more interesting relationship between fear and courage and altruism. So, what is it? So what seems to be the case is that truly fearless people tend not to help other people. For example, people who were psychopathic are one of the key features of psychopathy is a fearless disposition as failure to respond to threats or punishments or the potential for harm. And certainly people who are psychopathic do dangerous things. But they're very unlikely to do heroic things because that requires picking up on the fact that somebody else's afraid if you are doing something heroic, you're usually saving somebody else from danger somebody else's afraid in you're acting to help them. And what seems to be the case if you don't experience fear strongly yourself, you also don't pick up on that emotion and other people you have trouble detecting while other people are feeling it. You certainly don't appreciate why that state is bad and why you'd want to alleviate it, and so you're very unlikely to do anything to help when other people are afraid and so people. who were very altruistic turned out to be the opposite. They're people who are acutely aware of what it means to be afraid, and so they can empathize with that state and other people and when they encounter people who are in extreme distress, they're much more likely to help and so rather than being fearless, they're truly brave. They have courage which virtue whereas fearlessness is really not

Chasing My Cure with Dr. David Fajgenbaum
"I've heard you describe your life as two half times in five overtimes. Interesting you know because it sports reference comes easy you. Grown up as a kid in around. Raleigh North Carolina, it sounded like your life you pretty much live. It was like football as your religion almost. That's right. Tell me I. Mean What? What was it about that? Because a there seems to be interestingly some foreshadowing in terms of conviction and devotion and work ethic that showed up there and relentlessness. That has transferred later to July but some curious what were your aspirations back then early on I had this dream of of one day playing college football and I don't know if it was because I was so close to the NC state football team. My Dad was the team doctor for NC state and so I'm I spent so much time there and kind of just idolizing. The players and I love the sport I loved the athletic. I also always really really liked the strategy part of football. There's a as you know there's so much more going on between snaps during snaps than you necessarily can see, and so I just I loved the game and I think is an and now I look back many years later I think that. It also is probably just a reflection of my personality that I locked onto something and yes, there are things about football that I love. But but it was also the thing that I was locked on doing in the goal that I had set and so I just put everything I had into it yet. So your doctor was the teen by for my Dad yes that's your dad. Yes. What did he share any of the experiences because I know it's interesting because you know football has had an interesting reputation and a spotlight over lives really decade from. A medical standpoint I'm curious whether as you were coming up and playing at higher and higher levels, your dad being the doctor who was working a lot of football athletes whether you guys have ever had conversations about that will also my dad actually included me with him for like everything I mean I was on the sidelines with him for Football Games and I was in the locker room with him before games at halftime and after games, and so I I was very much with him throughout and but I have to say that this is like the. Nineties thousands when when we really just didn't know what we know now I mean, we thought concussions were a temporary thing. You just kind of worked through over a few days. We had no sense for for the long term impact them and says, I look back on anatomy that I mean it was almost like we we were playing this sport and we didn't know the risks and. You had aspirations beyond I. Mean Highschool was one became but also it sounds like you had aspirations for sure college. was there an inkling in your mind that said I want this to be my career or was it just Did it never sorta like get to that level? You know I the goal that I had was to play college football that was growing up that was that Was the goal it wasn't to play professionally it wasn't even certain things to do in college. It was just I want to play college football, and as you know that that kind of singular focus than change once I. got there. But really for me, it was played college football. Yeah I mean I'm really curious about what you said also that you kind of obsessed with not just the. Physical aspects of the game but the strategic aspects of it you ended up playing qb playing quarterback, and so it's almost like you're there's a huge leadership aspect to it. There's a lot of complexity and there's a requirement in that position to process vast amounts of information and a lot of complexity that's changing in real time and also not just think about it but make decisions and take action. It's something that I loved about the game was the exactly all those things integrating so much information acting on it and and something I enjoy. But I don't think I've realized just how important those sort of skills would become as I've moved on in dealt with other challenges in life so you end up actually In Georgetown Lane Football, what we actually studying there. So I planned to go when I chose to go to Georgetown one of the main reasons that I wanted to go there because they had a really strong pre med program and I wanted to do a health sciences major because I was really interested in sports medicine it was okay. This is kind of a way to to Meld my interest in medicine with interest in sports and so I was from the very beginning interested in going into medicine. But as you know everything really changed once I got there in. My interest in sports medicine really really shifted. So

To protect vulnerable Republicans who are up for re election. As for the nominee, the early focused on the White House not settled yet. But the early focuses on two federal appeals court judges any Cockney Barrett of Indiana and Barbara Lagoa of Florida, Carl What is your sense? I'm sure you're talking to people at the White House and in the Republican majority in the Senate. What's your sense of where this is at it? Well, I think you outlined it. I think the president is prepared to make a quick nomination. I suspect that the Senate is ready Assumes the FBI does its background check one of the things about doing both of doing either. One of these two appellate judges is that they were confirmed by the by the Senate in recent years, so the FBI background check will only need to be sort of an update, not a complete new deep dive. So The process is on its way. I suspect in a rather rapid fashion. Do you think the confirmation hearing happens before the election, But the actual vote happens after they hold that for the lame duck. I wouldn't be surprised to see the committee hold hearings and maybe even vote before the election. But I don't expect that with just over 42 days, 44 days. I guess it is that that it will be possible. Teo bring this all the way to the floor before the election.

"You the more of a deep dive that you take. The less broad you're sort of understanding is going to be for example. A hub full functions hobbled full creates value. You know those types of things and so site always said there is a tradeoff between it'll get a deep dive and going going broad trade. There is. So if you take probably the fastest growing area in business schools, which is around business analytics. So you've got degrees that stands sort of twelve to twenty four months. Many of them online, most of them hybrid, some of them in person to got a lot of flavor service but these programs will have more or less of what I might call core business disciplines integrated into them. Okay. Perfect programs that are more on the twelve to fourteen to sixteen month range in maybe thirty to forty credits often have a very little accounting finance or marketing involved down whereas the two year programs will have relatively more. So there is some variation with in these types of degrees. This is a very popular degree and you're right that even though it comes from business school, sort of the broad business background is relatively limited. Okay. So those types of course has been gross business analytics for example, could be given by energy getting school or computer science. Department if the content that specialize right Many many schools mathematics. Computer science are offering up programs the SORTA minor differentiator is business, call it business analytics, but the other schools will call it computational analytics or some other sort of variation on that theme. But the what what business schools coke to add there is a some foundation in court business and then application of the tools within business but it's A market, where if you are a student thinking about a program. You WanNa think very carefully where do I want to end up in? What do I want to be doing? Do I want to be running the queries. Do I wanna be structuring the supervised learning in a I? If so many I wanna be in a computer science program or department. But if what I want is to to excel as a marketer, I might have been a marketer as an Undergrad but I, WanNa now do marketing analytics. That's where I think you. You'd probably prefer the business degree. Yet. I if a student approached me and said professor on thinking about looking at specialty master's. My. First question would be you know, where do you WanNa be when come out? Right. Yes that that's pretty interesting. So just like you said, before from Georgetown's perspective looking at this as a as a portfolio of products. some of them are very specialized and you do cab the the more traditional. Management deeply as well. So the question for students it appears to me is exactly what you're asking. So what exactly do And that answer has to be in but what courses or not cautious what program they want to get into as this is a this is increasingly a bigger problem I would imagine for large companies because you know if they're hired just I suggest by the typical MPA tards. Only into into the management program. May, not have the skills needed do teach. Inflammation, together to do you know we into the decision layers of the company, right? So. You raise a really interesting point and I think for me, it points to the importance of continuing your education..

Thank you very much for this. I know that this is a difficult morning and I would just like to hear your thoughts this morning on the sad news. Are Hard you know really hard right now you know we had. The you know the toughest rivalry, you can possibly have for a few years and you know north time to do is what everybody talks about basketball and I think it is the greatest rivalry over a long period of time. But for about ten years Syracuse Georgetown was nothing quite like it and John Built that really out of nothing you know like it's to build a program Kentucky Duke or tell people done it before people will do it again. But what John did Georgetown's with the help of the start of the Big East Gavitt but what John? Did was no one. Ever see coming. And you know he was imposing a year and he will his team to play a certain way. And he set an example, a standard for defensive basketball teams that you know coaches who've. Tried to replicate what replicate every since he was there I mean that's what coaches builder teams on and you know Bob did it in the end of John Thompson did it Georgetown and everybody followed after that? And he said an example for coach. All coaches I think you can. You can certainly say, African American coaches. what you have to do what you have to be but he said an example for all coaches who was a great defensive basketball coach is good as anybody's best. Defensive Teams I've ever played against by by a lot and He sets a standard and you can't. As you said, you can't really old, for example, exaggerate or John did. And we became great friends I mean. It's still a rival researchers. Georgetown but John became great friends after after. A few years at the end of our. When we were playing each other and then you know up until today but. He was one of a kind the there's nobody likes. John Thompson surreally isn't and I don't think there will be It's it's hard like I said, it's hard to. Over exaggerate who was a bigger than life figure and he brought change to college basketball. And he empowered a lot of African American coaches in kids. To come in and be the best, you know be the you can be. And Charger. It's hard to even. The the quantify talk about it right now it's it's just He you know. Hard To. Put putting the words I did the best I could, but it's really hard. to put into words He. They talk about Mount Rushmore of coaches and John Thompson is on it. You know. He's on it for a for a lot of reasons but. For for. Certain. Because he's one of the Coaches you have to talk about when you talk about the great coaches and college basketball. Gym Bahamas with me on get up the news is still very fresh Tim I. So appreciate Your Willingness To do this and I said earlier this morning that it feels like they were really two separate stories this morning there is John Thompson, the basketball coach, and all that he accomplished and he is in the hall of fame for that. But with coach Thompson, there was so much more to it and I wonder for the younger people in our audience. If, you could describe your recollections of of some of the battles that he fought. Particularly proposition forty eight bill is brought up the time he walked off the floor you talked about how we empowered young african-american athletes right now, we're at a at a particular moment or that is so prominent in the conversation many people may not know about what he did in the eighties how do you remember all of it? You did it all before anybody you know at the NBA player was was you know was really worthy this week and what other athletes have done this summer. But John that all by himself virtually you know somehow John Chainey certainly comes to mind but. This took it out by itself. It was horrible rule. Racist rule because you know, when prop forty eight hit people, I, don't have the details, but it was really ninety percent of the people affected were. African American kids and John would wasn't having a and. He was not afraid to. Walk out at the time when that wasn't something that anybody would have thought about and. To stand up for what was right and for for African American kids and you know that's what he did. And he continued to do. That is a career. He was. You know it wasn't you it was a great basketball coach don't. We don't want to sell their short, but he was a leader in the game and then life. You know in today's world, he would be. A huge addition to today's world. would. CETACEA no other would be able to. And there's no question the impact he had an all coaches but especially African American. Players kids and coaches. That's who people looked up to the. People from the cities. That's where the Georgetown shirts were. They were air cities. Those kids warm all over the place and they wanted to be like Georgetown.

"Find tons of stuff I wrote the column was. I can't remember who the coach was but he was frustrated that it his players were being recruited off of his mid major campus. And the point I made is that most been made your coaches and mid Major. Did your players low major coaches low. Major players are at where they're at for the exact same reason because it's the best opportunity. They've got nobody dreams about coaching. And I don't say this disparage anything. Nobody Dreams about coaching in the sunbelt. You Dream About Coaching in the ACC. You're the big twelve or whatever but you end up as Sunbelt bill coach. Because that's the best job you can get at that time. But here's the great thing. If you prove you're awesome in the sun belt sometimes tmz a better opportunity will present itself. And then you know what the coaches do. Every time they take the better opportunity. They jump as soon as I can jump. So if it's okay for coaches do then why why are we think it's a bad thing when players do it if you can be a sunbelt coat or southern conference coach or whatever and if you prove to be so awesome you get better opportunities and then you take advantage of him and everybody celebrates that then why would it be the worst thing in the world for a low major player or mid major when they proved their unbelievable at that level and they get better opportunities. Why would it be the worst thing in the world for them to take advantage of of that opportunity again? Y- you can't at least in my mind have it both ways. Yeah rest your case. I got confirmation. That had not everything you just said the last point I would make on. This is that coach will tell you you need and I think I was going down this path and then I took hard left. You needed tarrant to to transferring there. Are It transferring is already not easy you know. What do you think of these people as just basketball players like we just watch them on TV? And then we we think that's all they're also people with his friends and girlfriends and boyfriends and and they they they build a life on a college campus. Leaving that is not always always easy. You have to actually move so everything that goes into that your classes may not transfer slowly some credits. No doubt yeah. There are already things that make transferring not ideal for student athletes. So we don't need to add to that that I don't think and the fact that most Division One division athletes in most sports don't have to deal with this suggests to me that that men's basketball basketball players women's basketball players football players baseball players hockey players. They shouldn't have to deal with it either. Yep So we'll see Joey Hauser at Michigan state season from now which was the expectation and the same with his brother other Sam.

Honestly it's the same thing with. UNLV hasn't been what lovie used is to be in a while. I do believe he will do a great job there and get back on track but still you. UNLV still carries a certain like you and LV. Those letters will still show up at a rap track every once in a while right because of what they were once upon a time in. Georgetown is is that that and so just having the. I don't know what Georgetown is team. We'll see but having the brand of Georgetown with Pat Ewing inside the garden against Duke. Which is talk with Kentucky? I'm not even GONNA try to start this argument right there with Kentucky as arguably the biggest brand in the sport north. I'll just throw North Carolina there as well so nobody gets mad. North Carolina Duke Kentucky. Yeah big massive current brands in the sport of college basketball. Georgetown do pet. You Coach K.. That that's going to be trivia time. Throw it at me okay. So I mentioned pat led Georgetown to three championship games in a four year career. One and two in those games and the won the title in Nineteen eighty-four was projected to win again in eighty five. They're the number one overall seed heading heading into the tournament and they of course lose to Villanova in the championship game. What at Villanova shoot from the field in that championship game against Georgetown Eighty percent? Seventy eight point six pretty good all right. Let's enough close enough okay. So like last night I started reading as I'm preparing for this. I just ah you click on one. Patrick Ewing next thing you know. You're reading his entire life story right and it just is obviously Patrick. Ewing's life story in his lifestyle. I know ever I know everything about Patrick Ewing right out. You WanNa know one of the things I learned. I do actually one in high school. He took a handful of visits to two colleges. Obviously ultimately enrolling George San also visited Villanova. Didn't never knew that did not know that. Okay yeah he took a visit Villanova then ends up the last game of his college career playing against Villanova and though I knew this this part it's still just wild every time you read it. They shot seventy eight point six percent from the field. They were twenty two of twenty eight from the field in the national championship game. That is bananas. Yeah and they used what they thought was the only proper way to to play Georgetown in order to pull off the now seat wise. It is a big upset but I will also say and we can move on here in a second. But that's not the biggest upset in college. Basketball Villanova was in the same conferences conferences. Georgetown played them tight two times prior. It was kind of like kind of like when the giants almost beat the Patriots in week. Seventeen the year that the Patriots didn't lose a game in the regular season and then the giants beat the Patriots in the Super Bowl. I think that's the closest championship parallel. We see in American sports. So it's it's an all time victory and all time high-performance. There's no doubt about it but there have been much bigger upsets in the history of college basketball than Villanova overjoyed down. The coaching staff knew each other. They were familiar with each other and awesome awesome win and certainly an all-time championship game performance. But I've always thought that the the hyperbole around Villanova's win and you know that being like this amazing easing upset. I just I've always thought it's been a little overstated. That's all it is and I can actually give you the numbers on it Villanova entered the in the championship. Game with a twenty four and tin record. They were an eight seed in the tournament. Georgetown was the number one overall seed they enter the championship. Game with a thirty five and two record. So if you just based on that at once against eight one teams thirty five and two Villanova's twenty four and ten once team has to and against the other team. It sounds like this amazing upset. But you're exactly right. They played twice in the regular season season. Both were competitive games and at tip off. Georgetown was only an eight point. Favorite over Villanova even crazy and you know why. I think that this has been and more built up as an upset and over the years parish. Do you know what that tournament was. It was the first time they went to sixty four teams so it was the first time that you had seven seventh and eighth next two teams and so the very first year you do it. You have Villanova just squeaking into the lowest possible. See they could have been from a from a power conference Stanford. There's never been a see that low before make it. So it's a bigger field they crack through and And so I think that's also what added up to kind of the law around the upset Trivia Anyway I'm not even close to ready but go ahead. Can you name the other two final four teams at the nineteen eighty four saint. Johns Saint. John's thing John's is one and hold on John's Georgetown on Nove. Georgetown beat Saint Johns. Okay cake to guesses Is is one of them. HOUSTON nope okay. Okay I really want to get this. Damn Perish Duke Duke is incorrect because eighty six. And that's the first one. Come on give me a conference. It would have been at the time the Metro Conference. Don't tell me IT'S MEMPHIS MEMPHIS. State Tate University. All right there. We go there. Because that's what like Patrick. Ewing was a consensus first American. Three or four years of college Keith. Keith Lee was a consensus first team. All American two years and a second team all American third year and so. That was the way I was supposed to spend my Monday nine of the tournament. It was going to be keithly my idol when I was a young kid against Patrick Ewing in the championship game of the tournament and Villanova screwed screwed up everything they can go down that way. That's a nice little a nice little sidetracked there. Yeah so anyway. Patrick Ewing against Mike suggest the inside. The that's what I'm trying to figure out. What are we even talking about after doing? It's like she's just inside the garden on Friday night in Orlando will be there so make sure to to read what he writes. CBS SPORTS DOT COM. Let's move on Michigan State Hall of fame coach. Tom Izzo has said he will resign.

"Hey there it's scary. It's Friday November twenty second two thousand nineteen welcome welcome back to the CBS sports. I on college basketball pockets where we sometimes discuss Campbell fighting and leaky Black Matt. norlander being suppose we'll start with Thursday nights. Most interesting interesting outcome happened in the first game of the two K.. Empire classic inside. New York's Madison Square Garden Final Score. Georgetown to number twenty two Texas Sixty six Patrick Edrich Ewing's Heuer's dental five at the half but then outscored. Ut Forty five twenty four in the final twenty minutes so Texas associate coach defensive genius. Leigh Yawkey chocolates. Probably GonNa Watch like forty nine straight hours. And I'm trying to be funny. Luca's great undeniably. My point is just wild to see his defense. Give it forty five points at twenty minutes. Norlander what did you make Patrick. Ewing's big win which sets up a Friday night's showdown between Patrick Ewing and Mike at MSG where I know. Oh you'll be in. Attendance will be Let's get to what happened Thursday night because I thought certainly possible for Georgetown to get a win here but I thought Texas was the better team if they were playing a neutral court five game series. I still would take Texas to win. Three get a five against the Hoyas but for them to just come back and dominate and find the answers against Texas defense was pretty pretty shocking for me I mean I. I didn't think that Georgetown had a sixteen point. Win In them over Texas squad that's obviously ranked and now is in danger it probably will fall out of the rankings. COME COME MONDAYS UPDATE regardless of if Texas can beat cow by one or one hundred here on Friday night But what what. He's strong win for for Georgetown to to get this kind of victory. You're talking a little bit on the previous podcast. In terms of what we think the the Hoyas royal doing were there going overall at foreign one. They're looking offensively. Pretty Solid Mac. McClellan is making a nice progression here in his sophomore off more season and seven remains. Just he's he. He is a real difference maker down low So for me me personally. I thought Thursday was more about Georgetown astounding in the style that it did as opposed to Texas losing how it did that. Then obviously it's troublesome Texas just a complete no-show in the second half hyphen. That's not common to that extent with shock smart Texas teams but they haven't man good good on a good on the hoyas air and yet sets up I would think that the garden will be close to capacity given its Patrick Ewing. Georgetown still has a strong following in the city city and then Duke Obviously Always Trust Msci. I am compelled to bring up something that I mentioned on an earlier. podcast this week. Penn State owns a fifteen point win over that same Georgetown team and is now four. No on the season twenty fifth at Kim Palm Show respect for chambers in the job. He's doing with the nittany lions I'm getting there. They got a tricky home. One against Yale on Saturday. I'm assuming that's not in our faith. Five picks but If they can if they can get that one and then they gotta play Ole Miss Against In Barclay Center next week I will good start Maryland. Eastern Shore Wachner Bucknell among the Among victories here but Penn State is winning winning big Pat Chambers is off to a very good start and yes they are ranked highly and Ken Palm so they just might be on the way to prove me wrong. Texas losing remove them from the top twenty five hundred one. We're recording this on Friday morning. I still haven't updated the top twenty five and one yet running a little behind this Friday but I got a spot open now. I believe I'm going to give it to Colorado because Colorado is ranked in the AP poll. It's not been in the top twenty five and one at all so I believe Colorado is GonNa fill that spot. But I'm thinking about Penn State. A pen state has a has a solid case here in Colorado is the only bright spot mostly right now at the moment with the PAC. Twelve parish do you realize how bad the the PAC twelve is on Thursday night. Washington State lost at home against Omaha. Ucla lost to Hofstra at home. You had cal getting roasted by Duke and there was one more. Yeah Utah lost. They got killed by Coastal Carolina even Arizona like had issues getting pass out to Kota state so if you want to go Colorado. I don't disagree with it. The PAC twelve could use that kind of shine. Oregon's been fine and all but The league's been off to a good start. Thursday was just a dark. It was dark knight a reminiscent night of a two thousand eighteen for the PAC. Twelve between Colorado Penn state. I personally think Colorado's a better teams. That's my official. Vote for you. Cou I will probably go with Colorado Colorado then but let let let the record. Show that if it was the top twenty five Anti Penn State would probably be number twenty seven. Let's focus back on Friday night George Duke inside the garden. I for whatever reason I've reached a point in my life where I don't really care about going going to actual sporting events I just. I have more fun watching them on television. Like last week I went to agree a grizzlies game with my wife and our youngest son and it was terrific. Because it was a Mike Conley returned to Fedex for John Moran was awesome but like I would have had just as much more fun. Maybe just just watching it on my couch then actually being in the building. I sell that to say this. I think it's GonNa be awesome inside the garden. Georgetown Duke Patrick Ewing on the sidelines. Coaching Against Coach K.. Lot storylines here after last night. Mike Francesa's now two hundred seventeen and thirty four all time while coaching a team. That's ranked number one in the people. And if he wins tonight it will be two hundred and eighteen. Th Vic think about that for a second. It'll be two hundred eighteenth victory. Sorry as the coach of the number one team in the country he will pass John Wooden and that will be the most all time. So you've got that story line which is tremendous and then you've got coach K.. Against Patrick Ewing inside Madison Square Garden. These are two of the icons of college basketball. Obviously for different reasons. Mike is Arguably Ghibli if not undeniably the greatest college basketball coach of all time in. Patrick Ewing is one of the greatest college basketball players of all time. You know one of my first memories of college basketball is Patrick. Patrick Ewing being an absolute monster. That's when I got into the sport. He was at Georgetown. The eighty two eighty three eighty four eighty five season spent four four years in college. That would never happen if he were playing. Now as opposed to then a consensus consensus first team. All American three years. One of the very first freshman to be an undeniable force in the sport. He took Georgetown down to three national title Games. In a four year career. They wouldn't one and two in those games. They won they lost to. Obviously the most famous loss is being the loss to Villanova in the one thousand nine hundred national championship game but to have those two. I really think this is accurate. Icons of the sport of college basketball. Aw Coaching against each other in the building in Midtown Manhattan where Pat Spent fifteen years as a star for the New York Knicks putting together a hall of fame career. That's that's GonNa be an awesome thing to be a part I. I'm on some level jealous that I won't be there with you because I would assume that the energy and the building will be just absolutely dramatic. I think so. I think it should be pretty fantastic. You know you throw in the fact that it is a Friday night so Some people that otherwise might not want to scoot down to midtown Manhattan for whatever reason if it was a a a traditional weekday. Now they're going to make the time to get there and yes. I would think that the garden will be buzzing. I HOPE WE GET A. I do hope we get a good game. I was curious if She had ever coached against Georgetown. When ewing was a player he did not do ca sixty three all-time against Georgetown? The first meeting between these two schools happened a Long after ewing left it was it was nineteen eighty-nine but I'll I'll be just purely on the core perspective Jamesy Kinjo who some respects had had his way with that Texas back court on Thursday. How will trade Jones match up with him? How will that backward accorded Duke matchup with your sounds back overall? And then you're seven going it's Vernon Carey. Those are two different kinds of big men. So I'm just I'm actually fascinated by the matchups here. Duke is the better team but I don't put a pass Georgetown to get a win there. I think they should have a shot. I I wouldn't guess that the line is to you too close. But I'm certainly hoping for a game single digits into ideally the garden will be Will be pretty pop. And that's obviously the second game Texas by nature of losing now he's GonNa try and get right against accounting that was obviously just as expected I wonder Marc Foxx roasted by Duke. In the second game on Thursday night you mentioned Vernon Carey. We are wrong about a a lot of stuff but one of the things that we might have gotten right is in the preseason. We were talking about Duke and specifically Vernon Carey. Who is not really showing coming up on mock drafts? Because he's a he's a traditional big as opposed to the type of big. NBA Franchises value. Right now and I don't want to say that those guys are unplayable in the NBA NBA. But they're less playable than they've ever been but one of the points I made. Is that what we might find out is. He's not a great NBA prospect for reasons. Since I just stated but it won't stop him from being a great college player and so far he is a great college player he got thirty one and twelve in the eighty seven. Fifty two win over cow Thursday night. He's now averaging eighteen points and nine rebounds in twenty three point two minutes per game. He's been he's been great he has. It's been great. How about this? He's three for three from three point range so he might not he might average. Maybe you might get total twenty five this season but but when when he steps out so far he's been He's been he's been true so far. Yeah he's sixty percent from two point range he has been he's been solid. All round. Jones has been their most important player. I don't think that's really up for debate. Ah But Carey has been a steady. And he'll get his he mentioned You know I spoke to him after the champions classic that going up against you as Buki the biggest physical challenges ever had in his career That's.

"Harry scary Wednesday, November fourteen two thousand eighteen welcome back to the math. I got back Norrland here with me. And there hasn't been any victim of sports since the last time we recorded on Sunday night every ranked team that played Monday one every team that played on Tuesday. One number to Kansas Pete from my number seven Carolina beat Stanford number twelve Kansas state beat Denver number twenty five. Buffalo beat southern Illinois on the roads and buffalo has to true road. Winds both of which are better than North Carolina's best road win. So Norrland is probably got him as number one seed all of that happened on Monday night, Tuesday night, number five, Tennessee beat Georgia Tech number twenty two LSU beat Memphis. But the biggest story might have been Georgetown winning at Illinois. The Hoyas are now three and they have a white dude reverse donkey norlander I'll start right? There is MAC Nicole mania about to take over this country over the country. No. But it's about to take over this podcast, MAC McClellan whose dunking rep. Tation YouTube born dunking reputation was second in this class. Only two ones I on Williamson did his name well on Tuesday night. And that was a good, but kind of chaotic game Georgetown gets a frankly Goodwin for that program. Go on the road beetle annoying illinois's not gonna be necessarily tournament team the season. I actually don't think he'll noise even going to be an IT team this season. I think they're two years away from being I think they'll pop two years from now Radnor would might have a program that develops into Sweet Sixteen caliber, but regardless of that good for Georgetown to do that and McCloy he's he's a he's fun to watch. Because let's listen, he's he's a bulky white guy who can pop out of his shoes and and seeks to have dunk. That's awesome. As possible and games perish. And when was the last time we talked about Georgetown on this podcast. And it didn't involve them firing. John Thompson or hiring, Patrick Ewing Paris. It's has to be at least three or four years. Right. Yeah. I mean, they've been mostly relevant for. A while. And it's wild to think about because. Tweeted this last night my earliest sports memories heavily involved, Georgetown because. You know, people people are going to be shocked to hear this. But I grew up in Memphis. You didn't know that? Did you hold on? Hold on you grew up in Memphis rope in Memphis, still live in the area. And obviously it was Memphis state at the time, but they were awesome in the early eighties at a center and Keith Lee who was a two-time first team consensus all American head knee issues. So never really flourished in the NBA didn't have much of an MBA career. But just an awesome college basketball player from west Memphis, Arkansas shout to the west Memphis three. So it was it was leeann pet Ewing. Those were the two dominant bigs like I think they were in school at the exact same time. They were both. I all Americans in one thousand nine hundred eighty three one thousand nine hundred five Keith wasn't in eighty four. But Pat patois so so pet was a believe all three of those years Keith only was in two of those years. But either way my like I can vividly. Remember like they're supposed to be on a collision course for the national championship game was going to be Memphis against Georgetown Keithly against Patrick Ewing. And that was in nineteen eighty five. And then, of course, Villanova upsets Memphis state in the national semifinals Villanova sits, Georgetown. But Georgetown, is was like the biggest thing in college basketball, and one of the big things in sports in my in my childhood, and the idea that they've been mostly a relevant college basketball in recent years is kind of. Not great. I think it's great for the sport when Georgetown's good. And I don't know if Georgetown's good, but Georgetown's three, oh, and they got pet Ewing as a coach, and they gotta white reverse Dunkin. So that's good. Yeah. Oh, it's definitely good quick thought on Keithly..

"It's more precisely said, sort of penalty of felony. The only people who said anything under penalty of felony. So far about this or cavenaugh and two of the other people who are alleged. Really at the party. And the accuser to this moment has still not said anything under oath or under any penalty, a felony in in a court of law, that accusation would be tossed out unless the person was willing to state their case under penalty of perjury. And so the staff should investigate the heck out of this thing between now and a hearing, and then they should call relevant witnesses. And if the majority doesn't want to call relevant witnesses, then I say shame on them, but that is what we see. We require of people all over this country in very, very difficult circumstances. When a claim is made is to come in, put their hand in the air swear to tell the whole truth and nothing, but the truth and then make their case subject to cross examination. That's the way this works. Emily do think if we end up as seems highly possible. The moment with simply the two of them testifying on Monday, and it may be as David French says, there will be. A background investigation so that Lisa senders will come armed with with material questions about, although it doesn't sound like there will be other people under oath at the moment. And we have one person who makes a claim and she is credible. And we have another person who denies that claim and he is credible. What are we left with at that point? If both because we haven't heard the testimony and I agree with David French that it's entirely possible. And I mean in my view, likely the Blasi Ford is going to be a compelling and sympathetic teller of her story and that that could have a real impact. But we have to wait and see how it plays out. You know, for me, some of the arguments people have made about why Blasi four doesn't seem credible to them are not arguments that hold up to me and I so for example, because one of the arguments, I think David French, you've made this argument that you know, because she waited so long to come forward that suggests that. I mean, certainly true, makes it harder to prove, but to me, doesn't it all make it clear that she's not telling the truth. Caitlin Flanagan did an amazing job on the daily this week for the New York Times. And in the Atlantic talking about a sexual assault, she experienced that she didn't tell anyone about. I had experience of sexual assault and high school in the eighties. I didn't tell anyone for a long time. We just didn't do that. I felt we too much shame and responsibility to talk about. It just seemed like something that was my fault, but I know it happened to me and I have the same response hearing, President Trump and others suggest that maybe she's mixed up about Kavanagh's identity because I would never be mixed up about the person who did that to me. So I find those efforts to kind of undermine her story really hard to listen to. Do you guys think that the. Peripheral evidence about Kavanagh's teenage years, his his own joking about what happens at Georgetown prep stays at Georgetown prep, the hints in the Mark judge memoir about cavenaugh. Do you think that's going to come up? Is it relevant? Do senders need to consider that. You know, look, I think whether or not he drank to excess on occasion in high school is. You know to to, if let let me put it this way. If he said, look, there's no way I could have done this because I was stone cold, sober all of the time and remember with clarity where I was in where you know what I did, and then there was evidence, no. In fact, you drank too much on occasion. I mean, at some point it it gets very, very difficult to say, evidence that he drank too much on occasion equals evidence that he committed a serious act of sexual assault..

Five one two eight three six zero five ninety we talked about school safety there and that's part. Of, that Discussion and when the school year begins in August the sixteenth Georgetown ISD all school visitors will have to go through a new single point entry system before getting access beyond the main entrance of the school they've done some massive renovations in the Georgetown's school district starts August sixteenth doors would be opened to the main. Front entry, visitors at Georgetown ISD schools will have to go, through a new secure single point entry system before getting. Access beyond the main entrance of the building, the person will take the driver's, license they, reception this will scan that through the raptor system it computerized system that then does a background check for. Them through a central clearing. House before they construction began at two of the district's high schools this. Summer visitors would hand. The receptionist. Their ID to get checked and then walked past the desk but now the framing. And. The hallway there will soon have glass windows, the, entry, way, will, also, have doors. That will be locked at all, times until the receptionist pitches The button that allows the visitor there you go it's kind of like a maze of doors you gotta. Get to before you can actually get. Access into where the kids are yeah and it makes. Sense and it's yeah obviously it's going to make it more difficult for any intruders any you know anybody that means any harm to get in but. It's still not the ultimate answer you're, still going to need more security outside of their on the, grants you're still going to need more, deterrence out there you're going to. Need guys holding guns you're going to need police you're going to need national guard whatever it is To this gotta stop before they get to the campaign you do because a lot of school shooters have permission to be on campus that's right and this doesn't mean. That shooters can't just stand out in front and I'm not sure this new single point entry. System includes a metal detectors the story doesn't indicate that. The doors to. The reception area will remain locked as well and. So. Truly, visitors can't get past this area unless. They've gone through. The appropriate background screening the district has already included these entrances in all of their new construction the new entrances at two high. Schools, are expected to be. Complete by, the, time, students return in August with the heightened awareness that we've seen, over the past several months to years incidents at different, facilities that certainly raises the interest level. Here Georgetown ISD is paying about four hundred thirty thousand dollars for the. New high school single point entrances that's money leftover. From the twenty fifteen school bond there. You go that's the story. There from k. i. CBS Austin, yeah well it's It's, a good start absolutely there are many aspects of that to make a lot of sense but it's not the ultimate answer but it's. It's interesting. How the Georgetown independent school district was able to move quickly they moved very quickly on this within started finding the money making construction changes I. Hope they're model for a lot of other schools all right five one two eight three. Six zero five ninety toll free eight seven seven five nine zero five five to five now..
