Now, in Dallas or just outside of Dallas that's big twelve country he spent time in Salt Lake City.

"But man, you can't tell me I wasn't a big factor, and if you have all this medical information that leads to a unanimous decision by the MAC. To the safety of the players to postpone your season. Why Andy? How are you not sharing that with every other conference? And tell the people, what did your medical staff? What did you researchers find? Be. Transparent. I mean, that's that's the way I don't get there, and if it's all about health and safety, then tell us what you all discovered and give that to the Big Ten PAC twelve big twelve ACC SEC Americans the USA. Everybody else and uncles on the mountaintops in Tibet. What are you holding back? Every conference, every single one of them. I mean, it's not just the MAC. But the maximum put out. There are overwhelming medical evidence research I what the Hell did you all? and. Please get. We're going to. Find Ourselves. In some interesting waters here though, but you know what you're saying is that somehow the MAC has accessed information that three hundred and thirty Americans don't have access to, you can't just all sort of acknowledged. I. Understand. I mean that they're not keeping it under lock and key I mean, is there no room in the conversation for the current climate of the country as it relates to battling this disease? You yourself have been on a bunch of times fitzy and told us you're not leaving your house. Isn't that at least a factor into the decision making for what should happen with college sports but. I left my house to drive to. Montana. GonNa Fly Right? Actually. It's not. We packed up the family trucks, turn into road twenty hours to see my dad in Red Lodge Montana other than that, the grocery store and back, and that's about it. I mean that that that's the extent of my world. Now, like if we played college football, if the five percent hits me that that that home run miracle or something like a five percent chance, we may play why Dr Two games to work you damn. Right. I will and I'm and I'm adhere to every safety protocol known to mankind and then some, but but Darren here's the other thing, the players A. Lot of the players are saying we WANNA play and every I've talked to every athletic director I've talked to. Dave Clawson on about three weeks ago, head coach awake. about a month ago, and he said that he had three players coming onto coaching them for feel comfortable playing. You started scholarship. You're good. You know every coach every talked to honor scholarships for any player that does not feel safe in playing. And, and you can't tell me that being athletic facility. Like nausea cares running back at Alabama. Very. Stated very eloquently, I, am safer here than I am at home or anywhere else. They are safer there, and here's another thing, right? I really got to find a medical doctor Dasan. This question excel I, really want to hear the answer. What is to keep if it's just johnny and Sally, go to class chemical right and they and and they get the corona virus at a chemistry. C. F. One hundred or whatever. Right in English lit. Do they have a case? If they're in a class, do they can they go to an attorney and go I caught it at the University of Alabama or a? You know at San? Diego State and they didn't keep me safe. Do I have a case? Yes. No, and what? What's the difference between Johnny and Sally? and. Football. Because the football player is in a bubble, meaning the dorms or. Housing or in, and also you know going to the same place at training table to get anything from filet Mignon, a smoothie twenty, four hours a day seven days a week at most power five schools. So those players are in safer and better. Environments, then you and I are Darren. I don't disagree with what you're saying, but I think this is also this is yes, a large percentage of this conversation seems to be focused around the safety of the athletes. But don't you think that some of this is also about the definition of amateurism in two, thousand, twenty, I mean some of this sort of feels like that's absolutely part of the conversation Fizi that you're right. There are going to be a lot of what would you who were they, John and Sally who are going to English lit class. You're going to be a lot of campuses. Marty Mardian there just for giggled, they're going to be a lot of people who are going to class, but they're going to be a lot of students who are in and you know if you're one of these programs that does have a virtual school system set up, but you do have your players on campus I, mean. Then what are we saying about what we're expecting from student athletes? You can do virtual class for every student athlete, and that's the other thing I. The one thing I disagree with Trevor Lawrence. What would he put out there and I loved his message. But he's saying, you know these players are going to have to go home and play well, hold on a minute. They're student athletes right. Athlete. Go to school. Class. They, don't not getting kicked off campus. I. Hate. We appreciate your sediment. We we appreciate that you love Your College Football Trevor. Let's not shine that bright of a light on what we're doing here because we can't. Use Your remarkable athletic ability to generate hundreds of millions of dollars. On scholarship. So bad part is a is a bit misleading because these guys aren't going back to wherever they came from not being shipped out school. Aspects and Darren. The reason that. Kevin, 'cause, he's at the heart of this whole thing in my opinion. Big Ten commissioner. Is that. There's a lot of lawyers now because of that lawyer, who's the big ten commissioner. As you mentioned, thanks for clearing that up case, anybody didn't know it was just. In here the. Here on. Extra. Thirteen. Sexy. Even moving around a little bit but anyway. This is the other station. It's okay. With them, but here's here's the thing man lawyers are in every president and chancellor ear coaches aren't making this decision. Aren't making this decision. Informing, presidents and Chancellors and then conference commissioners fine forming. They capable of making an objective decision and athletic director, really a coach. No. That's what I'm want Jeff Harbaugh. Making. Decisions. No? No, he's not. That's my point is not making a decision. Do you, but are you arguing that he should be? No, I'm not I'm if you. Hold on a second coach. You know just calm down. Put Your Britches back on. Lawyers informing presidents and chancellors that one player and I agree with this aspect, I do agree with this because if we lose one life..

"He's worked sports radio in Birmingham. Alabama which is just the heart of SCC country. He's worked in Columbus Ohio, which is obviously Ohio state right there smack DAB in the middle of big ten country. He's now in Dallas or just outside of Dallas. That's big twelve country. He spent time in Salt Lake. City. What I'm saying is the man knows how to move around the country, but he also knows how college football, how it is received in many different parts from the mountain west to the SEC to the big twelve to the big ten. So it's emotional. Feel the emotion playing out on social media from coaches from players from administrators from pundits from people in the college football. Media, IANFITZSIMMONSESPN amongst semi joins us on extra thirteen, sixty good afternoon you. Ain't nothing good about this happening coach and the way you described me by the way I, the image of jewels. Right eating his muffin. All. Fiction. I'm just GONNA be a nomad and walk the earth. That's that's kind of you gotta be above. Can Be. Residents or legal tender, Europe bomb, and I've been of thumb around the world of college football for a long long time man and. Where we go right now, it feels like the SEC and and the commissioned a great thing. He is John Snow and game of thrones, right in the battle. The bastards when he just draw SORTA like come on everybody I, don't give a damn and I. Hope he wins because now all of a sudden, he's got marquee players on his side and I think giving a lot of administrators at least a momentary pause. Darren, because what with Trevor Lawrence put out there? in injustice fields? I, mean. Give me Lawrence feels on our presidential ticket and twenty four. Because these two young men have arguably more to lose than anybody else. You're looking at possibly the number one and number two selections and Twenty Twenty, one nfl draft, and they are saying to hell with everybody else we want to play. And we've seen from so many players out there. Now, she hairs at at Alabama one of the best running back through college football. Shubra. Hubbard with the best running backs in college football at Oklahoma. State you know we mentioned you know Justin feels parents of players putting out on social media. I. WanNa. Watch my son play football Joe, borrow putting out man. We didn't football last year. I'm looking for a job right now and he's a number one overall pick and orchestrated. Arguably the most explosive offense. We have ever seen in college football. So I don't know what's going to happen man but I I know that the players are making one a hell of a push last second push. To try and save this college football season. Yeah, and I think, yeah. The point about Joe Borough and what he put out there respectfully is more important than Trevor Lawrence or justin fields because if they're one and two and they're considered big time NFL prospects. Is going to be diminished or hurt if there is no college football season for them to play. But to me, it's a guy like Joe Borough, we don't even know who Joe Joe Borough is. We didn't really know who I know. He was recruited in Ohio state LSU gotta, but still him playing on field one on the Heisman, which then allowed him to be the number, one overall pick in the draft, and it's more that kind of player I don't really think the players at the top of the totem pole coach, i. Don't think that they've got a lot really to worry about in a situation. I appreciate their passion vote and speaking up, they're taking the risk though. I mean they, they could those two guys that easily on on the more explosive dynamic receive reporter Mike Apartment, the best linebackers in College Football Gregory. So right? Yeah. Outstanding End. MIAMI. All these guys have opted out saying I'm I'm not playing. They could easily do that. They're, but they're willing to risk getting corona right. In there. But one last run with their voice, but their teammates because they love the game of college football, but they could easily now man, I'm good I'm going to be the number one overall pick or at least five I'm sweet take care boys get lucky and. Win and not doing that. Fair point. Fair I was thinking more about if there is no season, those guys wouldn't be as impacted as perhaps other players would be with professional aspirations, but your point was one that I I hadn't really thought of, and it's a very, very good one infants Simmons joining us. So is this starting to crater on the big ten because it was reported yesterday that there was a lean that they were going to cancel all fall sports maybe there would be a postponement but including football. Football and the Detroit free press, our old colleague, Dan Patrick, he had some sources about this today, and since we've heard from coaches, we've heard from athletic directors. Teams might revolt out of that conference. They're talking openly about moving over to the SEC, see everything that the big ten was probably fearful of is actually playing out the longer this drags. So what do you think's going on with the big ten today? This is Kevin Warren, the Commissioner of the big ten conference with a lawyer. Keep, that that that one word, right, his his former life, he was lawyer. That man jumped ship and went rogue and say we're going conference only. But before, and it is in the power five commissioners have been in talks either. Other Day if not every day and when he did that back in, July, I know for a fact to other power commissioners are like, what in the hell are you doing right now? He told us on air last week, the athletic director Texas going. We were all supposed to be in step and all of a sudden, the big ten steps conference, only tax wells, GonNa do whatever the big ten does which I talked one athletic director in the PAC, twelve yesterday afternoon. And he's the. Right now livid with Kevin Warn Big ten commissioner. Well, what what is he doing? What is this man doing and and and I didn't know he had a he was a lawyer I had no I remember the Minnesota Vikings and blundering the whole Adrian. Peterson. Thing. That's what he was run out of the Minnesota. Vikings Organization. This man is all. It feels like He. He is all about being right and being I and not what is best for each institution and each individual in the individual players and the players as a collective. It feels like it's all about he's demand in the mirror going. You're going to be out in front and you're GONNA be right. Let's go get him. and. I it's. It's bizarre man. It really is absolutely bizarre. He's got a son plays at Mississippi state therein. Right, what if he goes ahead and please and he goes down to watch his employees. Can you imagine the backlash if he's the first to say, now I'm out man and he he loves the MAC for doing the MAC in understand the commissioner record saying you know, hey, and I've the utmost respect. For Dr Steinbrecher him going it had nothing to do with money all about health and safety protocols and listening to their medical teams and and and the research are medical personnel came up with ads, the the the the only reason they can't do the season man come on It was also you lost a bunch of big money games and you need those games in order to just. To survive. and. Here's the other thing if your medical people, but wait a second. What's wrong? I mean. What I mean, you know you say that as if that shouldn't be factored in i. mean the fact of the matter is that the MAC and other group of five conferences, Fizi do have to take those things into consideration because they. What the power five conferences do, you can't tell me that money wasn't some form of a factor didn't make yesterday on ESPN radio. I think Peter Burns where he did say look money was talked about in meetings was not there was not a factor as to why we decided to postpone.

Who I thought might struggle. So did a lot of other people. He's just a two under par three strokes back. The player who we talked about yesterday with Steve Sands who's really really off to a rough start is Jordan speed I. Don't know what's happened the Jordan speed. He's three over par he seeking the career Grand Slam he needs this major to complete it. The Same Way Rory mcilroy needs the masters doesn't appear like it's going to be his week Jordan speed at three over par the weather look pretty good when I saw it on television. A bunch of golfers are still yet to tee off. So it's a group of about a dozen players. so by your your notable Zander's flea here on a local interest level Jason Day Pretty Big Name Player, Brooks. Kapka. He's in that group at foreign depart looks to be about ten players four-under-par. So yeah, there's a lot of notable names up there on the leaderboard hopefully weather permitting and it looks pretty good. It didn't look too cold. Didn't look too cloudy. Didn't look too wet. You know the way it can be up in San. Francisco up on the bag look good on television and yet another reason to go and subscribe by ESPN plus I'm telling you for five bucks. You get the actual feed itself this morning plus you get select groups I know directly does something similar but for five bucks a month, the ESPN plus to me is a bargain it really is we're getting overwhelmed with the amount of APPS and streaming services that were being asked to subscribe to Youtube Deals, Jack there's up. So you got kind of considered like which one do you actually need? Yeah. Have you kept showtime? You still have it. GETS GOING TO DUMP IT I. Really. I don't see myself. I don't see myself continuing with that. All right. I'm just I'm just not into. I don't have a show go to show their. You know Donovan was recommended it's been recommended before. Billions. I mean I'm five and a half seasons invested here. But I feel like it's it's really taken a turn for the word I. Feel like it's taken unfortunate entourage like turn for me. I don't love it but. Maybe, it could rebound. We'll see I'm pretty lazy with this stuff. So I don't know I'll probably just forget to cancel it and just keep it around forever. Okay. powdery off day.

"Right. It is on here at the wine cave. We have all had our first shot of the day. It's a Don Julio Nineteen forty. Two today in this house. Some of you might be wondering what that's all about. I will just quickly tell you my wife works for a wine company is some of you might know you might not have known that when we started doing shows from this house every day to have either adidas pants or bottles of wine show up at the front door. But she's in the in the wine industry and today her company has what's called a global meeting in which awards are given. Annual awards are winning and she given and she is nominated for one of those awards. So she's a little bit of a nervous wreck. With respect to her colleagues, she's nominated for what would be considered I. Don't know in sports terms like an MVP or. Silver Slugger, pro bowl something along those lines, right? Because it's broken down into different groups, etc. so she's a national accounts on premise. Oh, she's in competition with other people in national accounts starts in about an hour talking to be virtual. This is an award in her company. Usually they fly the whole company to some exotic. And if you win this award, you get a choice of going to Italy or go into Hawaii or just taking a of cash for those that are real real close keen listeners of the show. You might remember that we went to Italy a couple years ago when she won this award, that's where we ended up getting engaged you can't go one camp so. I don't know what we're GONNA do if she wins it but she's kind of nervous. She got some stiff competition. So I don't know how this is going to break down. She's a bit of Iraq so and in the liquor business and any wind business beer business like you know you get into that because you know how to throw down a little bit. So under normal circumstances less than an hour to go before this global meeting, which will be virtually held they. All would be three cheats to the wind by now. So. She just popped up from the office. Burst into the wine cave kitchen portion where we've been broadcasting and portis shots don. Julio. So it's going to be that kind of day. Great. She ascribes to the same theory that we do on the post-match show. As de Loyal Tha- win or lose will drink the booze. Okay. So we'll say good luck to her though I should I should get you. A cushion with that thing since I have taken my favorite phrase, put it on. On Cup holders on a picture and on a cushion I should get what phrases up the beaches my happy place. So I should get you your favorite phrase and gift you with a nice pillow where lose the booze. Coaster. A Picture and an cushioned. Tim Flannery who got that from the eighty four padres really. Tomato I think that was the Dick Williams law. We're lose we drink the booze. That was a fun team. That goes back. So I have hijacked. Yeah. So she's so I wish you. Well, I do I, wish lock I don't know what's going to happen here I just and how do you evaluate this sort of stuff in a pandemic because she sells to so many restaurants in restaurants have obviously been close for four and a half months what's impacts everybody's bottom line so I don't know how they're doing it but hey, we'll see we wish her well we wish her luck but I just know that no matter what. That will be open around this house here later on tonight. All right. So that's what's happening. Here was some tasty nineteen forty, two man. There's just nothing better out there than some Don Julio Nineteen forty two love everything about it. Top Twenty Five, college football I sort of look at it and think to myself.

"Schedule in front of me but I do know that those poor guys Florida state how `Bout this Darren Clemson bye week before they play Florida State Notre Dame by. Play for. minute. Doing this guy, any favors by going ahead and having all of these these deals, the power that ACC has everyone of them has a by before they play four Florida state but I I mean, those are kind of teams I'm curious to see week one what do they look like Sam Harnett? I mean that's a heck of a football player playing quarterback demon deacons Those are kind of it's conference matchups and it's not like you have come to Notre Dame week one. So you trying to find different story lines and those are a couple of that out to me. I got sixty seconds left here Kush brought up Notre Dame preseason ranked number ten for whatever that is worth here. Part of me sadistically wanted to see them just suffer here since they refuse to be a part of a conference, but the ACC through them a lifeline now so they'll play a complete schedule Notre Dame will play all their ACC teams and that means sorry navy, and that means sorry some of the other robberies that the plan but these are extenuating circumstances. Who benefits more is at Notre. Dame from going into the having Notre Dame included in it. I'd say Notre Dame going into the ACC because it was going to be hard just to pick up, you know three or four more games even though they are Notre Dame. Because It's only you. You'll. You'll lose you know that that Arkansas non conference game we're going to be hard to go play navy even in Annapolis now that that's another one that stinks man they played that game nineteen twenty seven. And we don't get you know Notre Dame navy and it was going to be in Annapolis, for the first time ever that was going to be a story and then that was gone so I would say Notre Dame, just because they were able to fill out A.

"You worked in Columbus to I. Wonder if if buck nuts dot com ever took a shot at the and Fitzsimmons. Sure, they did I those those those guys just cranked up back in like oh one. So they've been around a long time man and they'll pop store your to Because, they've got people everywhere but managed to check that. How about old Jimmy Hart hasn't has it beaten Ohio state yet as the head coach? And so what does he do? He gets chippy about our Washington. Possibly, being out there giving some instruction to a young linebacker and. That's the battle. He's GonNa pick right now to try and win and data clapping back with a generic like a tough guy. Worried, about your squad because you haven't won a damn thing down here now worried about my K. Pumpkin. By the way. Tell me it's not the most harbaugh thing ever to your point like it doesn't matter that witless against Ohio state people think this is a terrible higher but to bring it up there in a conference call too. It's like the most Jim Harbaugh thing I've ever heard. There's a when I was doing the show in in Columbus Ohio Without Art Street. We had hardball on. This is back when he was. You know you know. Probably maybe a second year at Stanford possibly. Old Four zero five and he sounded so distracted finally Herbie just goes coach. You've got somewhere to go man we'll Okay talk later. Her. Crying laughing man like like what the? Hell. And then he tells the story like when you know when he was being recruited by Michigan and you can bet horror by this he his mind just goes in a different direction and like, and then he's to tell the story than our balls. Wife was told Smith, where they're sitting in the driveway to go to church or wherever you know the whole family and and the car, and he's got the car on backs it up out of the garage and then stops doesn't move. And it's like honey would go. Honey. Honey. Accelerator we got we got we got to go. Like what I mean like snapped out of whatever play he was taking off. So I could just totally see him. Isn't that conference call right? Getting all spaced out forgetting he's on a conference call is going hey, you're cheating down there. At the Stanford just gave them like an hour before you know what I'm saying they just POPs into his head. You know one of those random transient thoughts that he all the sudden just blurts it out at a conference call. So horrible and absolutely. So harbaugh. and. You know the conversation was about something very serious. It was about covid nineteen testing protocols and how do we adjust the schedule and okay let's go to Ann Arbor. Jim. Charbagh. Do you have anything? Yeah. What about that cheating going on in Columbus? They totally changed the subject. You know that's exactly the way it went down there was no time rhyme or reason for this. Whatsoever, the adults were talking in here comes petty Jim Harbaugh just mix things up. And and think about this because I wasn't I mean we talked about this one particular play that really changed the entire engage and a legacy of our ball as as the savior coming back to comes old number four right is gonNA save us and bring us back to glory in the college. Football playoff. It's fourth in an inch. You know on the fifteen yard line and J. T. Barrett. Rented off left tackle and if they ruled on without kneeling on the fifteen one, hundred eleven, thousand screaming Buckeye fans going ballistic and if they ruled on the field. And overtime that J. T. Barrett did not get that I and it was so close that you could not overturn it. They really did get it. It was so close you could not overturn it and horrible ball went ballistic and think about if they had ruled and they could've easily go that close I was kneeling right there and that that he was short by at millimeter. The legacy of Jim Harbaugh right now and the image we all have of him is completely different because they're going to the big ten championship. Not Ohio State. I think they win that game and guess what? Then then the College Football playoff but who the hell knows but that one call. Changed everything. Made Him quirkier than ever. Really. So Quirky and he's he is turning beauchamp Boeckler every single day I, mean he just looks more and more like him every minute of every day in fitzsimmons ESPN joining us an extra thirteen, sixty I realized that the University of Connecticut. Football. Program is not Clemson or Alabama, or Michigan, or Ohio state or USC. We both worked in Bristol you and I were there for a period of time. We didn't even know that they had a football program that being said, Fizi. It feels significant that you can is canceled its entire season and I wonder what you make of that. I don't consider it significant because there was talk they were going to be you know basically demoted from FBI CFCs I i. think it would have been extremely difficult for them to even put a schedule together now I never perfect. They were talking to to Virginia about possibly playing you know the cavaliers but they're independent. So you find me. Eight nine ten games they were going to be able to schedule there and one going to be easy. They're bleeding money as a football program to me was was actually probably a smart decision and I hate it, I hate it for those seniors man this was their last year and they were GonNa go fight for good old state. You me at pains me those guys And maybe because of the pandemic and the reason they had to just cut football this year. Is. You know maybe those guys can get another season I love to be able to see those guys. He could be able to seek life elsewhere and go ahead and transfer and I'm I'm pretty confident. They'll be able to do that but to me, it was insignificant because one who the hell are they gonNA play. And it's not like it's not like the sports going to slow down because Yukon decided just pack it in for a season right? Like top twenty five comes out. Schedules are still coming out. Games are still being rescheduled. This is I. Guess you're you're you're just you hate to see it I think is probably the big.

Think You, Kinda Hoop. We're talking about. that. Like I said you and I worked there and I will be honest I left Connecticut. When I realized, they even had a football program. Remember what happened when they went to the fiesta bowl none of their fans went lost a billion dollars in it. Remember my brother my younger brother's got recruited to go play it yet you kinda ended up doing playing quarterback to fuck now I'm like you're coming wear. I mean I'm coming to visit you of like why. Like nuts. Could he crazy. So. Yeah I mean it's not. GonNa. It's not gonNA hurt the great game of football that you can't claim.

"The big ten has a press release out so missile. This will happen I. At the power five level, and then we'll see what the approach is going to be from the group of five, just a group of five. Look at this as an opportunity to say well, we. We can now enhance ooh based on some of the things that have been changed. But who are you GonNa? Play I, mean the only ones you could player the independence right because the pack twelve has a policy, the big ten big twelve sec suspected that they'll all fall in line, and they'll all make the same exact decision to play ten conference games, so that's how they'll fill in some of their gaps, but they'll play ten conference games. Okay, so I don't know that I'm going to hold my breath waiting for. The Mountain, West or the group of five today to announce anything they'll probably let all the power. Five schools do it and then adjust accordingly. I'd imagine and we'll see every single year in and and commissioner they're. Typing out there they're press press right now and one thing that's important to note in the press release Darren by the big ten. What they said was the big ten conference announced today that if the conference is able to participate in fall sports, they put in parentheses, men, men and women's cross country field hockey football men women's soccer women's volleyball based on medical advice. It will move to conference only schedules in those sports. That's if if they can even. Even get that far. This isn't saying Oh. This is going to happen. This is our solution to dealing with with covert. We're going to go ahead. Mitigate the travel risk and just stay close to home. That's just if you can even get that far. And he mentions I forgot who reese fowler, but I was watching Paul Finebaum today really casting doubt that we're GonNa have any college football at all so if we can get to a point where it's. I Dunno numbers are better. The numbers improve in the different states. If that happens, this is how they're going to go ahead and approach a season, but there's still there's so much before we even get to that point. Well I. Think you have to just take the mental approach of you make the most out whatever it is that you're giving here like. Does it stink that you're not going to be able to host UCLA? State of course absolutely and we'll. Take! You get added another couple of mountain. West schools. Wow! Isn't that exciting? You make the most out of what you have. You can still squeeze out ten games out of a schedule if you're saying bigger state than. Just take the approach of well. We'll make the most out of out of these ten games you. Can do think about the ball. Just put the realignment baseball. Thinking about what's what's happening I mean think about that you're not you're an Al West Ale West is you, don't you don't have the same division games that's over baseball had to blow it up. They had to accommodate with the adjusting times, and we'll even know if that's going to be good enough..

"What the big ten just did. Feel like we just you just walked in on your mom bumping bellies and it was your dad. That's how I feel right now I mean. This is a kick boys. Some has got real out there and I real. We talked to SEC commissioner last night. Great Sankey Darren and appreciate you having me as always normally. We're kind of cutting up a little bit and. Man! I mean literally about fifteen minutes ago. It got real sankey last night had had a very A very visual quote when I asked him about his level of confidence and optimism. But the upcoming season starting on time, and he said thirty days ago, extremely optimistic, but when reality. Sets in and you have to move with it. And people in reality aren't doing what they're supposed to do. And there's real world and this pandemic, then your optimism changes you move with the other flow, and my optimism is changing with reality in my optimism is going slimmer because reality. Basically like people aren't doing their jobs and this damn virus continued to grow at two memorial. Day fourth of July, and here we are voice. The big ten just dropped a hammer. So. You look at these great match where we were all excited about Michigan Washington Ohio State. Oregon I just go out of your way to PAC twelve. I mean Michigan but Michigan State. I think I was at home against The canes you mentioned Wisconsin. Notre Dame how Notre Dame has got clemson on the schedule. If ACC goes conference only. Warburg Notre Dame and Getting to play? Are. You GonNA fill us well. Let me jump in here. Because you know a logical, a person would say this is just going to be the first domino while Fizi as you and I are speaking here the PAC twelve is it is reported that the PAC twelve will do the same exact thing on the heels of the announcement coming out of the Big Ten that the PAC twelve at some point, today is prepared to do the exact same thing that the big ten has already done or is in the process of doing and this matters here because Ucla was scheduled to come and play against the interstate at Sec, stadium, but now the PAC twelve will be the latest conference to announce that it is only going to. To play conference games USC. Alabama gone right. See You cow gone now the sudden at TCU play Alabama Jerry World I if the big twelve and in the SEC Don don't go with conference, only which by the way Greg Sankey saying with with with with the Commissioner of of southeastern conference. He told me a month and a half ago there you and I talked about this said they're able believes there will be some form of fashion. And he reiterated that last night a college football, but he told me a month and a half ago. That at this conference games only then so be it..

"By plumbing struggling from a business decision, I don't know what want right from interest in the NBA. You see some guys. Forget the player from Toronto. Toronto opting out to go ahead and prepare for next year because he's a free agent and. You're going to have different reasons for this. It's happening so tomorrow. The United Soccer Leagues Loyal. They are going to make an announcement. They announced the structure of for a return to play for the twenty twenty format eight regional groups sixteen game regular season. You'll play twelve games against your own group. These are being completely made up four against regional opponents, so sort of similar to baseball play four. Since everybody now is sort of learning a little bit about this league or just starting to hear about this league I would just take a guess knowing what I know that Santa Loyals regional group will be Orange County soccer club. La Galaxy to one and Orange County one in Los Angeles obviously. I think they will get the Las Vegas Lights Minus Eric Alda. And probably the Phoenix rising which is the best team in the League? I'm guessing that will be the group, and then regionally might be. Sacramento maybe Tacoma because they've already played them. Maybe Reno, but my guess would be. They will be in a group with Orange County La Galaxy to. Vegas, since there's already a match played there. and. Probably Phoenix rising, which would be interesting, and then Phoenix well. They're they're. They're flying. You'd play. Boss Charles all of these trips. They will have to get on a plane at some point if it's more than five hundred miles away. So that would be the only location where they'd have. No, let's not five hundred I'm sorry it's three. That would be three against Phoenix three against Orange County three against L. A. to against Vegas because again. You've already played them once then. If it Sacramento. Then you fly to Sacramento. So I'm just I'm guessing I'm just guessing, but we'll find out more tomorrow television tonight. Straight Outta Compton six o'clock. Taking the stage, African, American, music and stories that changed America Oh. That's the same heading. Okay, that's straight. OUTTA COMPTON SIX PM. All of them.

Smith and he said that his decision or maybe not his this is is good but the NBA's decision I have on the roster is not all about basketball you mean to tell me I can make a fifteen and Ross that's what that's what I'm saying and then I start looking at it in a broader and broader suspect that's where it don't become well basketball to me the becomes about politics and at one point in time I was saying I don't want to deal with politics of the game I've been in this game for a long long time I've seen is dangerous and I seem to transform a senior move forward okay this spring and Ryan Hollins ESPN NBA analyst he played in the NBA for ten years he joins us on ESPN radio and ESPN radio dot com thanks to shell pencil performance line right I know you saw the interview you herbal Carmel and had to say about it was more about politics that's keeping about the NBA and not basketball what are your thoughts on that I completely agree even in the in the main point role I don't understand how Carmelo Anthony wouldn't be on a screen I'm trying to think back to some type of negative image of Carmelo words like it's like this is good in basketball and not you know he's a guy with a lot of Flack when he was in New York obviously both copies of the coin box really is you know the kind of lost I wasn't going to happen but what's with that but other than that Carmel open a model citizen they say you know you go out on a recent they hate about the double the scores were worried about scoring or you know will he take a lesser role I just don't see that the doctors office if your not really just sort of figure out why is it that all reality were pretty reputable claim one or yeah are they gonna look for more than to scorn we've got people on the floor well it's all about condition he said to the dialogue guard one or or you know two three four you know multiple positions but other than that I don't know why would we on a loss or let's do something better will be on cover that we're not one right now and that really caught me and yell Cabell's really the quiet book out we'll make a fuss or cry without your info I don't see why Freddie I I I just don't see it around you and I both know he doesn't want a mentoring role to do once buckets he he wants to help the team win I mean I think that's the issue right that he wants to be your second third fourth option not coming off the bench to be in some sort of mentor what I did that but after watching the global log in all reality combo has spoken out a little longer wishy washy we were having a little trouble seeing anything like that it was on the ball was flat out this is possible only with the guidance for home use that is the problem all up with cold there's also something hopping and would love to the bottom of it for a dollar we've got fifteen days but I thought I could make a statement to say that we will call the front office of the closest to that I'm not come up with it I'm not the one both bodies that it never heard from him we haven't heard from dance only or even that you know is in Oklahoma City so I don't think it's fair to make that assessment right how much of that though what you just said is the fact that a lot of us myself included we refer mellow I mean there's something mellow where people have always really bad mellow we really like him it'd be great to see him on an NBA roster but you can't separate that from a guy who doesn't seem to fit in the game right now how much of this is we just like mellow written form for a lot like one of the like this is a life even as guys each little lesser role but that's a common all of the boxes but a lot without a while still alive call now is the problem and I thought all of this big issue you know it is that's what I've never used will be coming in in issue unlockable contacting local people thanks three that's good old proposal matters are you know all the time I don't want it though but I I mean the situation the live I just I had if that from Carmelo I have it I'm out why can't the guys well I I don't I don't see it I think they have another one hundred the ones who really come out Carmelo bond spoke with this the way you want down there is this on women will restaurant how's ESPN NBA Alice follow him on Twitter at the right house doing Freddie Coleman that's me my make happen if it you Fitzsimmons that Simone Freddie input Simmons and ESPN radio speed a spin doctoring that brings the David Griffin now the GM of the New Orleans pelicans back when he was the GM of the Cleveland Cavaliers he said it was a miserable experience it was in organic win him a Brian James were together even though they won an NBA championship back in two thousand sixteen on the jump on Friday he said it was my inability to deal with that media scrutiny it wasn't the man himself it was everything that came with the team lead by lebron James had nothing to do with being miserable with lebron we had and have a very positive relationship so I was disappointed that the story really became about me and this institutionalized version of quotes that were taken totally out of context and and quite frankly none of the information was new information that went to me Dr house from spin doctor into the biggest damn live what about you well I I I I I know Chris personally outlets in Cleveland with a about the GM not there on the grounds time kind of after in it before so to speak and there is pressure and almost the worst please listen at the end was either culture general bands of a scene where your superstar does not want to be there but he's not the only thing that will still feel like you have a choice to the Bronze Age Jeff this woman about but in a situation where a fight will bring a championship ring and you know what they are looking the ball characters in it although it's possible recalled the words coming through the walls Fargo the gonna make it can be able to vote really had its hands tied behind his back in the game take a lot of scrutiny I'm keep alive as it's all about you David Griffin has one eight NBA championship put together a roster of one acceptance of around the Bronze Age and got your all credit for it and once the the body starts to leave Chris woke up and it's not what state they're not on board so I do agree that this wasn't about lebron James local all of the calls so since we don or even get credit for one of the things that you know really concern me Ryan was he said he was concerned about the noise around the bronze in New Orleans he's dealing with the most high teenage draft pick since lebron enzyme Williams and this will be a ton of noise how will the handle that consider that that was a problem for me please he reminded apparatus with all due respect Dyer way is there is not any lebron James outlook by the high schools for the product sophomore values the closest thing we look at the bottom who can run it in shop it is it is clearly in the Lexus keep a modified David is a play that in a real through media I don't know but you don't feel that when he was a high schools a senior one was really pop up like that so if this is a completely different animal and do all the bonus that that would be the best buckle so guys go home where you weight different circumstances but I I do I do this is to say that but if it's because of a muscle and unfortunately everybody around the Bob Jones outside of the one where you live has been put in a situation where they're not going to be for the work they do not talk with all I'm talking Chris bosh Kevin love I would take I remain on the Windstar which is quite a bit everybody else is really left with ten seconds left give it take a lie too how much does the speed to the power that lebron James has more than any other athlete in professional sports are a little bit early and and the biggest thing that they've been toppled that wells is powerful knows who he is no big three days we can brother at all all all all over the world will walk this one of my hometown yeah yeah that's my as my hometown mind you gonna show that again that's what I want to know I said man that this country mount our elements good city a radar out up either they said they take their belief that up with a lot of yeah always good to talk to you right may you be well go get him this weekend okay grace the by the White House assist with a handle doing a great job ESPN NBA Alfie played ten years in the league he was it back to new cell be proud natural plus premium gasoline now with four levels of defense against gawk where corrosion and friction you can also follow us on Twitter at Coleman ESPN my handle my was handle at med cap by ESPN from deflate gate in the NFL to inflate gated Major League Baseball that's strange story is next if you keep it here on ESPN radio I hear from Yankee fans every single day they thought they were getting one or two starting pitchers didn't happen these over prices that I felt were making their way out of reach this is Freddy and Fitzsimmons have you ever had a man's keeping accident what's that's what may have been too near the lawn more two

"ian fitzsimmons" Discussed on KNBR The Sports Leader

"Ian Fitzsimmons of Freddie Coleman thanks for joining us on Freddie amp that Simmons was it about progressive insurance on the E. S. P. N. appetizers are from Channel AT and I heart radio so it's still going to happen Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving will join forces in broken the play for the nets no doubt about it is the most excitement business franchise probably that says Dr J. was playing for them and many champions it's in the a BA I know they got the back to back finals in early two thousand nothing compared to what was going on and what people believe will go on with the Brooklyn nets with these two guys I can't wait to see how they gonna make broken relevant when it comes to bass one New York there's no doubt they're better organization the New York Knicks but when you're the second team in a city there's a lot of a boulder there's a lot of the hill the you have to push that boulder up ask met fans about the Yankees as white Sox fans about the cubs as clippers fans about the Los Angeles Lakers when your team number two team no one is going to get all the attention team number two right now my has a better than team number one that doesn't mean they're going to get more press and more attention or more love than to number one yeah I mean it it's still the next show is still Madison Square Garden I'll see James Dolan I mean they're still going to be the the franchise of people are talking about initially but I will compare this to potentially what you see with the goals that war is in the Los Angeles Lakers where all the sudden when the war started winning championships the coverage of the war years changed out that's not having two teams in the same city but it is two teams in the same market similar market a handy warriors proved that if you win big you will get the coverage in the attention and that's with the nets we'll have to do to rise above the next may have that potential it Kevin Durant comes back healthy with car read that to me can be a championship level team now I don't think we're ever goes to the same K. D. so I'm a bit more pessimistic on their potential but if there are healthy in twenty twenty that could be the best team in the NBA and if that happens the New York media will shift because the NBA will NBA fans will begin to you don't want to see the nets they're gonna be on TV more than any team that made the Lakers so there will be a buzz around the much like there was suddenly a buzz around the war years after they became champions and sort of past the Lakers in some of the Lakers bad years and fans kind of jumped on the bandwagon the same thing will happen with the net today win big they make the nets interesting for the first time in a long time even when they made that massive trade for Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce they were no where interesting because we knew those dudes were past their due date in terms of helping the Brooklyn nets compete for championships if Kevin right comes anywhere near reasonably healthy we know that he can be that prime player is gonna be a thirty one points per game score I have my doubts I don't think so because a gala carry Irving who wanted to be this organization his Instagram account told at all it was him a basketball and the Brooklyn Bridge behind him he's been waiting for a moment like this and now he has hit one of its not his new main boom boom with them when it comes to Kevin Durant so there's no doubt they make them interesting especially when team number one the New York Knicks in that market Frank Isola of the athletic said a businessman and company this is a generational thing that's going on the Brooklyn nets because the Knicks have done this with generations also to give these young players like a script to read off of in these are all I could think of to say you have to sit back up you have to say you know the world's most famous arena all that so it's been twenty years we've got a whole generation now grow up with the Knicks mostly being garbage you're good at that's going to have some impact after a while it may be a lot of guys say you know what there's a good chance if I go there we're gonna lose do I wanna be the guy that takes a leap of faith when odds are it's not gonna work ask me I think Kerry every Kevin Durant that played in their minds to why should you especially if everything the carrier business done even lebron I'm still kind of talk is where Boston now he's gonna say if it's gonna work meet your keep you thinking man this could be a complete disaster that's why that's why I'm not gonna go there yeah the necks of been to me what the cowboys have been the NFL would UCLA's been in college basketball the storied franchises that have had a lot of success historically but you got to go back a long time before you can you know kinda remember those times and they were really good on top of the sports world a lot of things with the Knicks it may have been fantasy in terms of their appeal in there are lower the Lakers won with Kobe and Shaq in the two thousand they're still that image for the quiet letters in the Paul doors in the younger generation they saw that with the next you don't have the same legacy the same history so again I don't know if your next value can say that you expected carrying Kevin Durant to show up when you didn't really have anything to attract them for the nets were talking carrying Katie and the Andre who got the I'm your friend car which it's a great card to get if you can be somebody's friend get forty million dollars man I got to be friends like that what they've got guys like Jared Allen they got Spencer Dinwiddie Joe Harris all these guys who are under reasonable contracts much like the Toronto raptors Freddie who had all these role players weren't taking up a bunch of money and we're really exceeding their value within a context plan above what they were getting paid the nets have the same foundation of they can get Katie help he's marmot government you put some of them Freddie Coleman Freddie effort Simmons and ESPN radio ESPN app you can follow us on Twitter my handle a Coleman ESPN mines hell at mid calf by ESPN he is the one thing I can't wait to see and it's going to happen long before Kevin Durant is on the basketball court Alex me exactly what I mean by that have you with Jay Williams ESPN Basil annals when he's in the low post podcast you talk about how he knew not only were KD Ikari Irving going to join forces but why the Brooklyn nets were the only choice they needed to make it was curry I think it was Tyree I think it was the franchise I think we shall marks I think it was the way they handled themselves throughout the process I think it was that the way that sign is maneuvered different schemes from day one when they check traded Thaddeus young in the got care subvert his love the facility I I think and I I I said this multiple times act you know being in the room with him that night after he got hurt first up was a just emotional roller coaster watching that and watching him make the decision to say I'm going to go in my own direction back to New York to see my own team I never felt like Golden State and Kevin Durant will be on the same page again the wild card in this whole thing is not the mind set a Kevin Durant the wall because the guy that he wants to play with a guy that I firmly believe this these two now we talked about it but they told us before the season that they were going to join forces when the cod their contracts were out I firmly firmly believe that they said the right things throughout the whole year chi re rving even so early on I can't wait to re sign with Boston play people I I don't know about that one yeah now the wild card is you have a guy carrier thing as me curial as he is as a gifted score as he is we have seen time and time again that when he was out he wants out he won out of Cleveland god is with us he got one out of Boston got his wish he wanted this situation he put this situation together but he also with the same situation I got to going to Boston Celtics because one out of that have its own basketball team so both of these guys together is it can be both be alpha dogs together or does one have to it is going to be Kevin Durant's team to me the wildcard is house concrete Irving going to deal with that because if he says what he or he put out what he believes I want to be there anymore okay it's one thing to believe that it's one thing to say when things are going bad are you going to be that when you have to do that early on before maybe the real alpha dog toys this basketball team when he comes back his Achilles and Kevin Durant then Fred I think that's a great question because we don't know what is going to be like for carry in that first year and then do you give up that leadership spot of it's been your team and now the fan base is gravitating toward you do you suddenly go okay Kevin read this is your squad I don't think either guy having both of them have made so many interesting moves over the years it's hard to know what they think or believe but I do know this they're two different kind of do the ball good guys but they just think differently than your average superstar astra they strike me as the kind of guys work if there's a party going on there's good music and everybody's dance in there in the corner talking about whether not a me yours going to hit the earth tomorrow like that to these two guys are they just see think they see the world differently and I think they're made for one another but they both have left places because they felt like they weren't getting enough of the spotlight how do you share it in a place like New York where you're not even the number one team how do you handle that that'll be the question before I don't mind guys I don't want anybody thinking differently I don't mind people not trying to be part of the same Ole same Ole but if this is the way you guys are going to be and joining forces then you better make it work I'm not some are getting out of the Eastern Conference in getting the NBA finals you are two of the biggest baddest boys out there one was injured and one who is not what you want to worry about his mentality if you're going to join forces thinking differently thinking outside the box outside the room then you better make sure you win a championship in Brooklyn because if you don't the scrutiny that do you think was going to be there because you believe your talents is going to be a lot worse even if you have played for the New York Knicks I can't wait to see how they handle that if they're not able to get this done in Brooklyn they've they're relevant they're interesting but they're not there to be that they did win championships if they can't pull that off you will see exactly how they're out of the box thinking is going to help them deal with that especially in a market like New York is my met Kevin fifteen Fitzsimmons twenty Freddie Coleman of Freddie fitzsimons thank the ageless male tonight the ridiculously fast acting nitric oxide booster that won't go unnoticed was the Walmart to get aids this mail tonight is it really that bad that the New York Knicks miss Donna Kevin Durant especially with him now playing for the second team in that city that's next on ESPN radio.
