The story of Trevor Lawrence's life-changing summer
"So we just discussed how Trevor Lawrence is influence has been growing this off season I taking on issues of public health and racial inequality. But last month. The very thing that gives Trevor Lawrence his enormous Megaphone College football was put in jeopardy as players in conferences. Having. These discussions about canceling the season. What role in those discussions did Trevor Lawrence play. It was a Sunday night early August enduring. Trevor. Together again. There at travers fiancee's apartment and rumours are starting to pick up steam that some of the biggest most powerful conferences in college football the Big Ten PAC twelve that they're seriously considering, postponing their fall season, and this is coming at the end of a week. When of PAC twelve players have released a statement on the Players Tribune using the Hashtag we are united. And they've threatened to out fall CAM even opt out of games unless the conference mixed their demands for fair treatment and safety regulations and less the conference addresses concerns over racial justice, and meanwhile on a nearly parallel track, you have players the cost, the country, trevor, and fluted tweeting the Hashtag. We want to wait to express their desire to keep the seasonal live. So, in the Sunday night when it feels like college ball is teetering, it's actually dairying who decides to reach out to Dylan bowls. One of the players the Pactel's we are United Movement because endearing mine Houston gain. If we all join together the players in the we are united movement and the players in the we want to play movement that would be undeniably powerful for players who don't have concrete power who don't have a real seat at the table at least not yet their collective voice with the really hard to ignore because truly. So many of these fires want the same thing they want to play football this fall, they just want to do it in a safe responsible way. Dylan Daring, trevor they get on a three way facetime called a hash all this out to make sure they're all on the same page and that very quickly evolves into a zoom call with a dozen or so some of the biggest names in college football right Justin fields chew behind nausea. Harris And matter of thirty minutes, they agree to roll out a list of demands from this new fused Mecca Movement. It was amazing. How quickly we all got on the same page put something together I feel like the majority was getting spoken for. And we were like, Hey, we WANNA play. We want it to be safe but we do to take a watt mandated and universal safety procedures for Covid nineteen and they want to form players association. And it pretty much the stroke of midnight. These players, Tweeden Unison. But it's trevor naturally whose tweet is hurt the loudest he's re tweeted some fifteen thousand times including one quote tweet from President Donald Trump, and it's just a few days later actually that someone from the White House reaches out to Amanda Lawrence Trevor Lines mom letting her know that the president would like to get in touch with trevor. So hold on. So he has the president of the United States listening to him. Now let alone all of his peers across college football. What was that conversation with Donald Trump? Like? You know I would have loved to be a fly on whatever wall in whichever room that phone call took place the president has said really that trevor just reiterated his desire to play this season but trevor for his part hasn't divulged too much about that phone call. Conversation it was good I mean we just talked about kind of the whole we talked about that. We WanNA play like how's it going? How's it looking for the season and? president trump was just saying, yeah, I think our country needs college football and. then. Some small talk. Yes. We a little bit about what was going on in my life and vice versa. So that was pretty much the conversation though trevor is twenty years old the president of the United States wanted to speak to him. That is remarkable crazy. No matter which way you cut it. So. Let's recap here Halley Grossman because since March Trevor, Lawrence Age Twenty has faced pressure to help mitigate a global pandemic fight racism save the College football season display a level of political savvy and or gamesmanship that is obviously well beyond his years. So what else can you possibly be asked to do at this point? I mean look putting your stamp of approval which he's done on a list of demands that includes creating players. Association is a big deal. That's a radical way to reimagined that amateurism model that governs. College football right now but I think what this summer has shown is that trevor doesn't plan to quiet down you just a few days ago a whole lot of guys that original zoom call we talked about reconvened because they revealing again from a police shooting of a black man again, and so in the days after Jacob, Blake was shot. Trevor and Darien and Dylan, and a whole host of others talked once again to hammer out ways to help to draw attention to the issue and hopefully bring change. Trevor Lawrence football season is starting tomorrow and if all goes according to plan. He's GonNa win the heisman before becoming the first overall pick in next year's NFL draft teams have been salivating over his talent. There have been rumors that teams might even want to tank for Trevor Lawrence this season. So the question really that is, why is he even putting himself out there like this? Why even play the season? I mean that is the question, right? We have seen plenty a high profile opt-outs this season jomar chase at Lsu. Mike Parsons at Penn State today. Oregon. These are first round top ten NFL draft guys but no one literally nobody has less to lose by not playing the twenty twenty football season than Trevor Lawrence. are in a player having a job borough like. Or I don't know an asteroid hitting the earth, his Cossacks to go number one overall are safe, and at the same time, no one has less to gain by paddling the status quo or shaking up the current system than trevor does this system works just fine for him? He is a young white man. He's a young white quarterback, and so I asked Amanda, his mother that seems washing. Why? Why do all this? I put himself out there and she said something interesting she said look. there. are players out there who do need to even if trevor doesn't and there are people out there for whom the status quo and the current system don't work even if it works for him and he understands that now probably better than he ever has and he just wants to help. That's really it know told me one of his goals for the senior only meeting because he wanted everyone to understand that unless everyone is good no one is good and trevor, his best friend took that to heart. Of the day, there's so much division in our country. Just word of some people that WanNa see people together, WanNa see people love each other and I think that's where a lot of the things I do. It stems from that just wanted to see people happy together not divided. With all this pressure now from all of these different places in our country. Landing Atop. Trevor Lawrence's shoulders. What are you personally expect from him when the season starts? Because of the ways in which Trevor Lawrence has stepped onto center stage this summer it's almost easy to forget what it is. That gives him that stage in the first place, he is extremely good at his job. Term Lawrence is an excellent quarterback. Making predictions in two, thousand, twenty, hundred, probably a fools errand. But tomorrow, there's football comes we'll pay wake forest, and if clemson continues to play if they and the ACC and the big twelve and sec are able to play a full season, don't be surprised to see Trevor Lawrence back on the national championship stage. Don't be surprised to see Trevor Lifting the national championship trophy and along the way don't be surprised to see trevor continuing to speak out and perhaps that's one of the safest predictions you can make in twenty twenty. Life to be reflection of what I say and what I believe I've been thinking about everything that's going on and I think there has been some some moments where I had to say some things because it's just the right thing to do and it's time really is just how I live my life I want it to reflect what I say. I. Would always be the same person I want to be consisted. Eliot Grossman. Thank you for jumping on stage with. US. Thank you so much for having me. Pablo.

Bengals at the Combine in Indianapolis, taking a closer look at Joe Burrow
"With us here from Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis where we will be all week so much going on. I'm waiting next with Adam. Schefter Louis Riddick Todd mcshay and Mike Tannenbaum just to catch you up right now. Here's what's happening today in Indianapolis. It will be a very busy week. At Five o'clock eastern though owners are expected to meet players to talk about the new CBA which could expand the playoffs and move to a seventeen game regular season. We've got forty seven. Nfl head coaches and GMT. We'll be talking today. You're also hear from SEC. Standouts Joe Borough and to a ton of Aloha who also addressed the media earlier today. Jonesboro put on an absolute show as you know on route to a national championship for Lsu setting an FBI. Single season record with sixty touchdown passes and Ditto. While completing a whopping seventy six percents of his passes and not only that but bro won the heisman trophy in dominant fashion receiving a record ninety point seven percent of the first place votes here. Our previous comments from Joe Borough on February seventeenth during a reception. For the Davey. O'brien award. He had this to say I do have leveraged the Bengals have their process and I have my process. We haven't even gotten to the combine yet. There's a lot of things that happened. Leading up to the draft. A lot of information gathered bras. Mother Robin shot down the idea. Her son does not want to play for the bengals. Saying we have no idea where that came from. It's a story out there that has created that doesn't have any substance at least from our perspective here Hasbro earlier today here at the combine. Of course I want to be the first pick. That's that's every kid's dream you know I've worked really really hard for this opportunity and I'm blessed to be in this position. I'm a ball player. Whoever picks me on my go show up? How play whoever for forever dressing? You know. I'm just not going to be presumptuous. About what they WANNA DO I. It's the draft. You guys have been covered it for a long time and you never know what's going to happen so we played a month longer than everyone else and everyone else's been training a month longer than us you know. I wanted to put. I don't I didn't think I'd be able to put my best foot forward here at the combine so I wanted to wait till pro day had another whole month of training and just be the best that I could be when everyone when. Everyone's eyes are on me. You know coming in. If you're the number one pick the teen is picking number one. Is there for a reason? So you're going to have to come in. There's going to be ups and downs and you've got to stay steady through the process. Our research tells us about Joe. Borough is his own man. He's not going to be talked into saying things for other people's benefits so if that's what he said. That's that's fantastic. I'm looking forward to getting to know him getting to meet him through. The process haven't been able to sit down with them yet. But we've got that on the horizon. We'll talk more about Joe. Boroughs plans to hold off throwing here at the combine. But might I'll start with you in terms of do you want? Do you not want to play for the being. You have any issues at all with where we landed at least at this point. No I mean as I said last week Joe Borough at the end he does not have leverage. The bengals have the first pick in the draft. If they want to draft. Joe Joe Borough. That's where he's GonNa go now with that. Said I think it's incumbent upon sack Taylor in the Bengal organization to create the Right Environment. Where he could come in and they could build something sustainable and truly transformative so. I think where we wended. Wendy is appropriate last week. He could've handled that better but to Joe Boroughs credit. I think they tweak things I think they're in a good spot now. He's been well-coached past week. Tower doesn't it. Yeah and Adema to your Do All your contacts. It appears that borough likely young he's projected pick. I still think that's where the bengals ultimately go. And they're sitting there and that's about this a team that needs somebody to revitalize that franchise and they are expected to look to trade Andy Dalton at some point this off season and so when you're sitting there in division with Lamar Jackson there in Baltimore think that they know that they have to get somebody in there. That's going to put some points on the Board Baker Mayfield Cleveland and this is going to be the pick for the Cincinnati bengals. Even Joe was considering trying to exercise some kind of leverage really the only leverage you have is withhold your services and not playing not report even if he was thinking along those lines. Let's say he's doing a deep dive trying to figure out exactly. Just what the Cincinnati offer as far as developing me as a quarterback. Could you blame him? Could you really blame him for wanting to dig? Deep on exactly what? What does the future going to look like during over the course of my rookie contract with this football team would exactly? What exactly is Mike Brown's commitment to go ahead and building out this roster around me because we all know a lot of what's going to happen to him has nothing to do with him and has everything to do with everything that's going to be around him. Just look at the past three or four drafts. And how certain players have benefited from going to certain to certain teams? Just look at l a look at the difference between jar rookie year in his second year. Sean mcvay came in. It flipped his rookie year. People were saying Jared Goff to Canada. All of a sudden his second year is like. Oh wait a minute. Maybe he's not so bad you couldn't blame him. If that was a thought Lewis to that point I also think an opportunity. If you're Zach Taylor to say hey what's happened in the past. It's irrelevant we're going to myself with you and we're going to build something great and we can't worry about what's happened before we have a lot of work to do. But if I'm the bengals if I have a hey coach Taylor. That's worked with quarterbacks. Like you mentioned Jared Goff Joe Boroughs Billy and character. That's a great opportunity for the bengals. Sino three things one. Is that if something were to go on with. The bengals is not going to happen in public and this has been addressed in the past week if it's going to happen behind the scenes so whatever we hear from this point on. Don't even don't even look at it. Don't think about it because it has nothing to do with with what is going on behind the scenes. The second thing is this guy's different cab he beats. It goes a Beatles drummer. He doesn't care what anyone else has done. In the past what everyone else is GonNa do in the future? He's going to do what's best for Joe Borough but the third thing I know about him is he's a football guy he's his. His brothers played linebacker at safety at Nebraska. His Dad's a almost four decades coach in football. He's a football guy at its core. He's from Ohio. Obviously I think when it's all said and done he winds up going in Cincinnati if he's number one overall pick but again. If it's GonNa Happen it's GonNa Happen. Not In the media. It's GonNa happen behind the scenes again. Joe Bro not expected to throw on Thursday. He said he just wasn't ready yet. Not a huge deal. Sam Darnold Kyla Murray. The last two years have opted not to throw here at the combine as well. What did make headlines on Sunday? Oddly enough pros hand measurements the measurable quarterbacks took place on Sunday on the smaller side. Love listen here's what he said after it was suggested his aunt size was small considering retirement after. I was informed that we slipping out of my tiny hands. Please keep me in your thoughts while he's got good company because here's what Super Bowl fifty four. Mvp Patrick Mahomes had to say who had just slightly larger hands than did borough my small Andrew doing great so far all right he should say believe in yet. Here's borough earlier today addressing his hands. Yeah I mean these measurements you can. You can take so much from them if it's a glaring issue on film with turnovers. Yeah it's probably an issue but I didn't have a lot of fumbles or anything like that so I just tried to make a little joke out of it I think it's a non factor I don't get paid to talk about. Measurements and analyze. The measurements like played to play football. So that's what I'm GONNA do. I look we're not gonNA make too much of this question. Well yet about what? They actually do what they're actually measuring here so worry not. We've got a ruler. We've got Louis at. I mean really what you're really trying to do is just trying to measure the expense of someone and they put it down on the ground and you actually hear about guys actually doing hand exercises to stretch their hand as wide as possible although when you're grabbing a football you're actually going to measure from the tip of the thumb to the tip of the Pinky here and this is hard because this is a hard rule and you can't really get good accurate measuring you look tired type by just under nine right. Look I'll give you a non center's Oh that's attention and would have actually done something with my. I mean what's interesting when you watch the tape of Joe Borough? There are situations where people come from behind strip him when he's trying to move up in the pocket and run. I mean that's going to happen if you have nine if you have ten inches so I mean it's not a glaring obvious problem as far as him on the football field and that's why I think it's really. It's just going to be something that will hopefully wind up forgetting about certain the biggest thing is and you know this with all of these drills you know as well. Mike you go back to the tape and you're trying to find something after the fact that says okay. Now I'm going to look specifically at these things so you're gonNA look cold weather rain and then ball security and Joe Boroughs as good as any college quarterback you're ever going to see in the pocket in terms of two hands on the ball and protecting the ball. I saw him in two thousand eighteen the last weekend. In September against Ole Miss. You can go back and watch the tape. My suit was soaking wet when I did the open of that game. It was pouring rain driving rain in anyone who says it doesn't rain in Baton Rouge on a Saturday night is lying to you. Because it poured and he completed seventy two percent of his throws with three touchdowns and zero interceptions in that game. So you go back to the tape and you try to look at these things and what the tape tells you is. He's just fine. You know I had a theory here. I have an interesting experience with hand size so I was forced out in two thousand eight. We were we trade for Brett Farve and just as a fan of sport. I can't wait to go out to the first practice and watch Brett farve throw. There's nothing physically imposing about breath and he goes out there and he's throwing Abe I've ever seen and I ask them like what is the value. Where's this philosophy comes from it? He said you know what Mike I have long fingers and I actually couple of football the way a lot of people throw a softball. I could actually be over the top and that's where I get all my philosophy from just watching my practice. It was unbelievable to watch though. I know as Lewis show. There's a tradition of how we measure hands but finger. Length is actually an underrated aspect of playing quarterback so far so far small hands but long fingers and you know what my pinky and all the time strong throwing football pictures of the five. It's easily the least important finger in the hand and I can't remember it ever being a big factor. It's all there in the grip. The pinky to me doesn't matter. It's archaic. How we're measuring the quarterback's hand span now with that. Said there's thirty four quarterbacks in the last fourteen years who have been drafted that have had hands of nine inches and smaller and really only two of them had any sort of Sustained Success Ryan. Tannehill is one of them and Jared. Goff is the other. That's it so there are thirty two out of thirty four. Who have failed. But are we going to say that he's going to the Joe Boroughs? Not GonNa have success because his hands tells me that the reason for their failure wasn't because they were nine inches weight.
Did cheating help Astros win World Series? Hinch says we may never know
"Aj hinch and the interview. He did finally breaking his silence of the disgraced astros manager who was fired in the wake of the breaking story in major league. Next glad you said that the ask the disgraced astros manager he was not. There's nothing else to call him. He's a disgrace Astros manager He was caught up up in the science. Dealing Scandal of the Astros didn't do enough to stop it and the first thing rob Manfred did was announced his suspension for Major League Baseball and then a couple allows later. The Astros fired him. You mentioned the interview he did. It's going to air tonight. And he was asked. Does this championship that you wanted. Twenty Lee seventeen. Is it tainted by this new scandal. Unfortunately we open that door as a group in that question I may never be answered. We may never know we're going to have to live and move forward and be be better better in the sport but unfortunately no one can really answer. Threw that question. I I can't pinpoint what advantages or what what happened. Or what. Exactly what happened otherwise but we did it to ourselves. Okay wait I can answer. It had had a lot to do. Look at the home road. Splits of all your headers like Jose Altuve. Have you see our relay race. Home and road splits dislike. It's like four twenty at home one twenty on the road and you remember if correctly that was when they remember lost the Games in New York to the Yankees remember the laws and then at home the they won all games. I mean it was an if I'm a dodger fan. I'm salty as well 2017. MLB CHAMPION DOC. There are two parades coming twenty seventeen and twenty eighteen and then back to back. Alex Cora takes that same show on the road and same thing. I I asked we. We know of this movie Bets trae goes through. You know as as Alex Cora cheated to be named later. Is that a part of the look at you know. I think that was the penalty. Not was the red sox train. mookie Betts to the padres and they said No. No you gotta make amends and trading with the dodgers all right shoulder dodger you owe the dodgers at Aj Aj hinch clearly is in that mode all of us do this in our lives. Whenever something bad happens did the interview though he could he could run and hide for year and not be heard from? I think it's better when you get out in front of it. But is he getting out in front of my saying. I don't know what kind of impact this had. Clearly when you're batters know what's it's coming. It's a lot easier when you go to that length of we're putting in electronic sign stealing system and you play the. I'm only the manager card. I couldn't stop this. No one believes please. You know either. The point where he's at the point in his life and all of us do this right when something happens in our lives. It's bad that we're responsible for. What do we try to do at some point? We try rationalize why it happened. And it's not really our fault. Aj hinch is at this point where who knows what he's GonNa do in baseball again. He's going to manage again. Maybe a couple years somewhere where. I'm not quite sure that he's at that point. where I need to reconcile with myself because I am a world series champion and I'm not going to walk around every day going it was tainted? So I'm I'm GonNa convince myself that I don't know what kind of impact this had altuve as still had to hit the baseball even though he knew what was the old PD argument. So He's in that point of denial. where I'm going is still WANNA walk around and not just feel crappy every day that we won and we won by cheating? So I'm GonNa convince myself that I don't know what we we did. Any act on the game only problem is I get it if you told me that one every game at home then win every game at home even with the cheating scandal. Whoa with knowing what's coming? So that's the part that makes it hard that's why you can't go automatically and say well we should just turn championship over to the dodgers not that the dodgers. aww their fans would want it that way but they didn't win every game using that cheating system so okay so they won three quarters of their. But I'm just saying when eighty percent of they're games that that's the only reason and this could have It doesn't mean that Wa. The team couldn't have beaten them at some point. All I'm saying is I get it cheating. Cheating it helps them. I'm not denying that but it's a reason why you can't take the championship and I don't think that that will work for majorly based on you can easily take like the championship. And you can not awarded to anybody. Say No year but Rob Manfred and look rob Manfred and Adam. Silver are two of the new age commissioners which they they WANNA do nothing they want to do nothing but in grow the game and have great reputations right Adam silver wants to do a little bit less than Rob Manfred but rob Manfred I guarantee aren t you. He thought I'm taking care of this. Here's a suspension for hinch. Here's bench for Jeff Luna. I'm taking care of it and instead what happened. Was it mushroomed out of control to the point. Where an hour an hour after this broke? What was the biggest topic online? Put Pete Rose in the hall of fame. 'cause you're not taking care cheaters enough. This got completely out of control because Manfred doesn't WanNa be the guy where the first line of his wikipedia pages rob Manfred who presided over. MLB taking a world series away from a team for the first time Blah Blah Blah. Aw that would be his legacy. He wasn't going to do it he wasn't going to be the guy to say you're going to look back at my my rain and it's GonNa be pace of play but mainly it's going to be. He took look world series away. He presided over a dark time in major league baseball. He wasn't going to be that guy. I'm not gonNA wear it so I'm GonNa have this suspension and then whatever happens after it gets out of my control and I don't care that's why he didn't do anything. Yeah I I just I never been into it. Even college used to do it and the Olympics and taken away medals and stuff that we watched watched to tell me that Reggie Bush wasn't the heisman trophy winner. You know you could tell me that all you want but I watched that season. Do you know what I mean. So I'm not fully the Internet. I don't think that changes anything. That doesn't take their memory away from me. I think you've just got a penalize the organization but I I'm not into taking championships

central Ohio Honda dealer sports desk metalloid use radio six ten WTVN we've talked a little bit about a Matt but you know with that with the veterans kinda guests to get healthier and coming back to the jackets you think it's going to be good or bad it's going to be interesting I I I don't know whether it's good or bad I I it's a how do you deal with this you know Nathan Kirby he he's not coming out of the lineup he's been fantastic but came back it's in his back he we need you know we know what he has done in the past he was struggling before he got hurt but none the less I mean he's he's track record speaks for itself so gentle rousing as some tough decisions to make sure I mean I serves of who your skates and new plays and hard to like dip your toe in that water like a really put him in a little bit see how it goes and then go good pull right back out I mean there are veterans are your I. money guys are you got to play on yeah I would think so yeah enter piece you know defenseman that young or whatever but and so maybe you can rotate him in a in and out in terms of the defensemen but came back and said you have him you feel like you got a player but you know John Tortorella shown he's not afraid to venture veteran if they're not one of the in his rotation and be a healthy scratch a particular I so I I it's gonna be interesting to see who decides to play each night and who are going to be the healthy scratches that are sitting and watching plus you think about it really hard for me the guy that's been skating good for you a couple three weeks now send it back to Cleveland I mean you're like this dude is been productive why do we want to do that yeah Ryan McGinnis did get sent down yesterday which you know that one made sense it what it's going to get really hairy is when you know al Oliver Bjorke strand who was playing exceptionally well before he got hurt when he comes back Alexander Texier who was playing well when he got hurt comes back pick I know what you gonna do heads we only have so many spots so but I guess it's a good problem to have put it that way as long as it doesn't upset the mo Jo exactly you know I mean that that's the thing I think as a coach you probably sweat it that's the balance you got a fine ha yeah and as a Dave that's all mention the other day we're talking about this I mean that may be the biggest one is Elvis I mean corpus Saleh was plain phenomenal so much so that the day before he got hurt he was named to the all star team but then all this is coming in two straight shutout sees what six into seven into since he took over as the starter so when corporate is back in what three weeks or whatever if Elvis continues to play like this and they're still on the heater a what do you do there it's a great question again like you said it's good problem to have yeah everybody's playing good it's a good problem to have yeah anyway other on the ice tonight seven o'clock they're going to be honoring military people tonight nationwide so should be a great night Matt thanks rhet six forty seven got traffic and weather coming right up here in just a couple of quick minutes we know the president

Consider the layers. I just gave you an yeah. That's that's a. That's a tear that i'm going to go ahead and put on my plate. We'll do it okay thank you. That's a that is actually very helpful because now i now i have a good sense of like yeah the it's basically wait this very specific intersection of good not great fun and <hes> a little quirky personality the i mean okay now i will say this you can be real close to great grade wing was terrific. You have great college football football player ryan were there were situational circumstances to brad wings greatness by which i mean having a touchdown called back right right as a special teamer <hes> that transcended <hes> due to their like impact that transcended his actual skill which is very high hi right but like randy mosses far too good to be a people's heisman right like when you are actually at the heisman ceremony you you've you've sort of trans. You've sort of eliminated yourself from people's heisman contract like ran well unless see the i i'm not. There's a blanket protocol. We can put over everything because the exception that i would put to say heisman ceremony. Proviso is a defensive player who gets a token invitation nations the heisman ceremony right yeah who's who's who's who's like our best example of that of somebody who could appear here at both correct right but who's yeah who's like a like <hes> honey badger. Would he be close to that. Yeah matthew be close to that mock mount moss's very close to that because of the route he took right like he he was just destroying people at marshall right wrongdoing so with like immense flair. I think he's really close to it. I think like any number air-raid quarterbacks. If you went back and looked like oh god he threw for five thousand on yards in like eight touchdowns hair all y'all you know he warlike a <unk> christmas sweater before that was entirely to comment yeah. That's like graham harrell or b._j. Simon's like yeah. I think that's like you could definitely have any of them there. You know i would i would include like another player who to me like you know if i would give you a prototypical guy. <hes> you know eric dungy. Eric dungy at syracuse was crate. Eric dungy did some things that nope nope. <unk> should do in any sport right at quarterback yet. He was brilliant on his own terms and statistically pretty good so i think what we're trying any do with people's highlands. Give you somebody who is under appreciate who is charismatic. Who is you know generally beloved by their team or at least respected and feared yet that is where i would that is where i would put up a fence era roadblock in front of the mosque thing..

Give me the money money and meet welcomed at the university of texas. Eh notice notice money meat. We didn't say anything about ten wins. Did we didn't say it darn thing about ten wins. We have <hes> the topic today of my favorite thing which is trying to celebrate college football players. Who are <hes> that guy or who were just brilliant college football players who i don't know maybe that was it. Y'all maybe maybe you're just a college great and then maybe go on to just have a perfectly respectable successful life started family. Get a real job. Maybe not get a real job and just open a bar right real job. It's a hard job so very hard job right really than our jobs. Totally maybe go to maybe you go pro and something else is what we're saying okay. That's that's who we want to talk about cause for years a wanted to have this and i think we're going to build it. We might need your help and building it. It's the people's heisman titles a little problematic. Y'all cuz turns out heisman trust. It's kind of their thing. They're a little little sensitive about its use. They don't like it a salad. Make money off of it mentioned it or even talk about who you're gonna vote for before you do it. Whiches che's as a heisman voter. I disagree with the policy but they don't like you to talk about it. That's how sensitive they are about it but the concept needs that to you just sort of frame what we're talking about here. Are we talking about players who were great in some instances yeah yeah in some instances. We're talking about players who were legitimately great in college. Are we talking about people who were greatest pros probably not probably not this is probably the peak for y'all right like he could win the actual heisman but if i had to give you a prototype for that this year right i mean fleet by franks flipping. Flipping franks is going to have a good year. Statistically speaking fleet by franks probably won't be starting for the new york jets. Actually that's a terrible comparison now they they. They've kind of got it together but you could say the cincinnati bengals. <hes> yeah might start for the bengals a couple of games. Could you see him creeping on the texans sideline then i could definitely see em making the raiders this guy sky felipe bay franks..
"heisman" Discussed on ESPN Chicago 1000 - WMVP
"Brad Edwards was once not just once but was seventeen times over the researcher at the Heisman presentation, which means Brad Newsome information that he had to keep top secret. Brad. What is this? What is your history here with the Heisman trophies presentation? Yeah. Just to give people an idea of how this works behind the curtain, obviously. When the winner is announced there's a speech, and then Chris Fowler comes on and deliver some information about the voting you see a breakdown in Fowler seems to know a whole lot about it, which is unusual for a guy who just learned like everyone else who won. Well, the reason he did or he does know that is because someone gives him a card with that information. And and that was my job. And so what happens is when the when the show first comes on the air a few minutes in Representative from Deloitte, which is the accounting firm, which tabulates the Heisman votes comes into the truck. The production truck where they build the graphics and at a certain point, maybe about fifteen minutes in we're given permission to look at the results and start building whatever the pertinent graphics are that we need for the end of the show, and at that point, no one is allowed to leave the truck because everyone inside that truck knows who won except one person has to leave because someone's gotta go give Fowler that information that was my job. And so I would write this information on. The cards, and then I would leave the truck go inside the theater, actually when I first started doing it. It was at the downtown athletic club. It went back that far. And so I would go in and for a moment for a few minutes. I was the only person in that building outside of a few employees have Deloitte who knew who the Heisman winner was. And then at some point in that in that break right around the time that the the guy goes up to open the envelope. I would give the cards to Fowler. And he would know as well. But it was pretty cool. Like you go in there. And and you know, you're one of maybe like five or six people in the world who know who the winner most years. Everybody knows who the winner is even when it's not official. But every now, and then there's one like we have this year where there's drama, and it feels pretty cool to be on the inside couple of questions here as follow ups to that story. Brad who is the researcher tonight. And do you have is number. That is a good question. I'm not sure I'm not sure who it is today. I did not laugh. I mean, I'm serious. I am. I want wanna break this news ESPN radio scooping ESPN TV that would be. Yeah. I if I'm not even sure they do it the same way that it's the same, you know, same protocol. Is it always has been? I'm thinking about the movie the sting where they got the horse race results just to beat earlier than they read them. So that they were able to fix bets in their off track betting. I'm just wondering Brad if you had any way to maybe call somebody between the truck and the stage or have like a signal like, okay. If I have three fingers up is this guy in one finger up is that guy. I mean, it was that even possible to happen that you would never do that. But my mind, I'm thinking this information can make you rich. If you don't get caught any anyone who would accept more than like, a fifty dollar bet on something like this. At this stage of the game is just stupid. And I wouldn't think they would've. Stayed in business this long if they stuff like that. So you're you're saying I need to learn more about gambling. Whereas I mean, I guess so I don't know ton about it. But I would I would think that something like this voted on like the closer, you get the more and more people are going to know who won. Let's also say that it's a good thing that there was no Twitter really back then because Brad really could have gotten in trouble. He can't stay off that it's college game day Heisman special on ESPN radio and the ESPN app. Hey quickly. We're gonna take a break here about ninety seconds. Both you guys. I think collar Murray should win because I think he had he into a were both elite from an efficiency standpoint. But I think because he did it over so many more plays. And I realized it wasn't his fault that he didn't get more plays. It was because his team was that much more complete. But because of the total body of work, given the. The the volume of plays. I I would I would go with calamari the bread. I wonder how many of the nine hundred some voters even know that that's what I worry about. I kind Marie should win collar Marie will win. And I'm I'm a little concerned about published reports the ten percent or so of the votes were submitted before the championship games. Let let's let's just say ninety percent of those ten percent go to to us who is in catch up mode. And then you look at geographically will Cuyler maybe split with Dwayne and some of those regions. We'll see again, it's northeast southwest south mid Atlantic midwest and far.
"heisman" Discussed on GSMC Football Podcast
"To the MC football podcast talk with the Heisman floats and Thursday night football. Now, we're going on to another topic regarding the heismans I had this Mark. What how do you see these three finalists as NFL ready DC them doing better than the NFL? Do you see them more time to get better the NFL? What do you see here? It's a good question. So to these three are eligible to go into the pros this year Haskins can declare also Cairo Murray can decide to go to the NFL. He has options as we know that he's a baseball prospect. That's already been signed by the Oakland A's. So he can choose to play baseball. Now in terms of how they look at the next level. I think our Murray declared he might be the first quarterback taken. Now, I get it his size it's concerning. But hey, Russell Wilson is showing everybody that size isn't everything. You don't need to be six five in the NFL to be a great quarter. Bac cower Murray is very Russell Wilson. Like to me. He's smart. He's accurate, and he has deadly deadly mobility. I think he's being kind of overload as a prospect. I think scouts still fall in love with the traditional pocket passer the traditional size. You know what I mean? Yeah. Paxton Lynch, PECS Lynch was. I mean, he was looked at very highly gushing over Paxton Lynch at the combine like oh my God. This guy's six six has a can look at the foot word..
"heisman" Discussed on Comeback Szn
"So, you know, I I feel I'm a better person for having been around the guys that are you know, that are in that fraternity and got to spend the time that I have so far. So you know, it's a lifelong thing you can go back to the rest of your life. So definitely embrace it. And how do you give them advice for like just the media circus that there are about to have to go through? Because like I said you are good in front of a camera. Good in front of a microphone other guys might not be as comfortable and you had to do stuff like late night shows in good Morning, America. How do you tell them to prepare for the the media that they're about to get? I mean, I had fun with it. And I think these guys you look at Tyler the way is got drafted already. You know, his dad is who he is. And and you know, obviously, he's he's plenty able to handle this. And I think the same for two he plays for the best team in the country mic savings, the head coach much media as much as you could possibly imagine. So oh, this only strengthened that not only makes it even crazier for forever. So that's a cool thing. Casey, like all on never forget, like even Cleveland like the year in two after when he did in the NFL, Johnny had his mom. I should say how did on the actual Heisman Trophy on Hodie him stand in his apartment, and like in his place, and then in the basement of this kind of game room when he had a house in Cleveland. And I mean, there's nothing like it. I've seen it all we'd walk into his house. And every time I'm over. I'm like holy shit. I like goosebumps walking by the thing. I remember, Johnny. We'd have guests over to your condo there or at your house. And it's like they walked by their kind of walking today look over and see the thing. It's like kinda presence in the room. Casey. You're like drawn to this thing and people he like look at it and point like, oh my God. I the actual ice been like, oh, yeah. Get up get a picture with it like bananas, man. It's such a cool thing forever. And no one can ever take that away from where's your hyphen right now about to ask where is it? Currently. It's entirely so they make one obviously give you one. And then they give the school one right one school gets one. And I get one I mean, and I know the one an image as you walked by the windows of the bright complex, and there's like a spotlight on it. There's no way you can walk by that building without seeing it. I remember where anytime you he was between places in Cleveland. And and I was like we were moving a bunch of stuff. And I was like I will legitimately take the Heisman and bring it's all like all highs that we don't want to just leave that even the move somehow, someway, he didn't let me get away with it. But if I would have been still be in my office, but maybe we could get you a smaller replica on EBay. I doubt that would be nice that we can work on that. Yeah. We'll work on that. So the Heisman Trophy ceremony this weekend? Johnny you think it's going to be Cuyler e B M, assuming you think it's going to be Cuyler as well. I do I called it for the last two months. I think he's special. I think he deserves it. And yeah. I think it's going to be taught Cuyler I think it's gonna be too. I don't necessarily think it should be after what we saw this weekend. I do believe that Kyle probably made a better case. And I've I'm a huge Kyla Mary fan been watching. I just feel like to a lot of people that are voting are probably gonna look at just kind of the whole body of work in the team Alabama is but it wouldn't surprise me. Either way. The only thing that would surprise me as if somehow Dwayne Haskins snuck in there, but there's just no way that's going to happen. I think it'll be I think it'll be a close race..
