"He didn't care for. That is not a good rebound being team. That might come out. This year is finally not a good rebounding team. If they could only rebel better but i loved really thought like that might be like a four dimensional chess way of coach k. Trying to see if you're paying attention we were afraid of disappointing him. That not only not only that we would get carver high treatment or the oak ridge coach treatment. But that that we you know we didn't want to disappoint them and so if he asked us to do something we wanted to do it but but we were thinking that way that that is a test this is. What do we do here. We need to do jay bilas. Everybody follow him on twitter and instagram. At jay bilas on twitter and at real deal change to at jay bilas i was able to get real deal of their various so many people than you imagine. All the people who name damage. And we're back you're on peacock in a second hour three coming up we're still here on. Tv that's the way things work around here so before there was an i l. there was f. n. b. fruits nuts and and the bagel. So so there was fnb before an i l. Yeah come a long way from fnb. I'm a long way that you couldn't have couldn't have spread on your bagel. otherwise it was a and counted against which which school was serving bagels like reserve all of them. Yeah you that's all you could give to the players like before a morning workout or something like that eight goals. Yeah the player. It was so stupid because you'd have to call us a schmear that we would call compliance and say. Can we give the player stereo. Nope can't do it. That was that was the way it worked and some schools use the like. I used to hear from coaches about this stuff. All the time Some schools would would say we have three people. Call the incidentally separately and we get three different interpretations. We just picked the one we liked. And that's how screwed up things were. This was my favorite. This was years ago to school. I can't tell you the name okay. schools got parking rules so seniors get the best parking course Followed by juniors and the like so. Junior basketball player is rooming with senior manager. Junior basketball players car senior manager doesn't senior manager who's who's is roommate says. How about this. I'll get a parking pass and you can use it. You just pay for it. The end of the year good They do that. The junior goes into the junior basketball player goes to the versus office to pay for the parking pass but is on the on the the senior managers name so somebody in the offices want. Why are you doing that. That's kind of weird. So they just call somebody and compliance compliance while we'd better check with the nc double a. They suspended the player for. I don't know how many games seven games because they deemed the senior manager a member of the basketball staff so that was an impermissible benefit. And you're going wait a minute. He's living with a member of the basketball staff like that. That's so stupid. I couldn't believe it. And but that kind of thing has been going on for one hundred plus years now maybe within al and the fact that the players. Maybe we'll start st- will begin to stop all of this ridiculousness and There's a a tennis player from umass and named brittany collins Who found out receives professional tennis player. I've found out recently that her team all their records were vacated because They received a two hundred fifty dollar. Credit offer a phone jack on a rotary phone in their dorm. And and that's kind of thing that goes on impermissible benefit. Jay bilas here on the rich eisen. Show thanks for coming on forever..

"Out in the outfield. And so our coaches were telling us you know you guys need to drink more water and hydrate drink gatorade and all that stuff because it's hot out here and they thought that somebody got dehydrated when he had a concussion because he got knocked knocked out in a stairwell like that's the best venue for that but that kind of thing happened. You know. we're more aware now. And i think our kids in my kids. Their generation are more aware of. What's right and wrong. Looks like you know nothing. Nothing that happened in high school was militias for from us but there was a lot of stupid and and our our kids are not as stupid and they're not as reckless and and you know like fast times with ridgemont high fast times at ridgemont. High came out when i was in high school. That looked a lot like my high school. You know that wasn't like we laughed at it because there was truth in it and and now those things are so re they look so ridiculous that you know kids wouldn't be able to relate to it. Yeah which is a good point. We expect kids to be perfect and not make mistakes and because of that they are better at it but it also we are meaner to them when they make mistakes. Now it's like mistakes are kind of a thing that we try to all avoid all the time instead of treating them like. Hey you make a mistake so you can learn the lesson so that you don't make the mistake again. That's zero tolerance. Zero tolerance doesn't work. It's not right or anything i am. I learned that was when i got into sports and had to do something about domestic violence. And i'll tell you. I've learned more about a our judicial system. Our court of appeals are The way that we handle issues like from working in sports than i probably ever would have learned elsewhere. Because it's an important topic so you want to know about it before you talk about it but the concept of a no tall zero-tolerance being a counter intuitive like it doesn't actually help and it makes things worse for the people that were supposed to be trying to help in that situation right. I think that's right and the hardest part is when you're a parent of trying to You know. I think when i came out of high school when i was in high school going to like the way you kind of found out. What your limits were were to exceed your limit and you know that's probably specific to drinking a little bit but when you how do you know what your limits are drinking if you don't exceed on how you're not supposed to eat two boxes of cinnamon toast crunch if you don't at one point. Eat two boxes of cinnamon toast crunch in one sitting or thin mint girl scout cookies with shriver was ought to be rationed by the government legal. It should be story. Yeah those who shouldn't should not be sold in bulk to to addicts like made that girls. They say no to anyway. It's like the whole thing is just very predatory almost. I don't need you coming over here being trying to get my money and trying to give me delicious cookies. It's just not fair. there's no way to say all right. I feel like. I've kept you long enough but i still feel like i'm going to look back at this yet. Seven million questions. Ask him but you didn't ask him. The point of all of this is your very cool guy. And i appreciate having your voice in the media because i feel like you know you say what you think. You're you hold yourself accountable for what you say. And i appreciate that very very much. Well that's nice to say. And i think i think you know how big of an admirer i am yours because i told you that a long time ago but You're you're not only a star in the business. I think people can see what you're heart is like Through your work and that is that's unique. You don't see that very often. And when i said that is unique i use unique correctly because my wife. My wife is a Some sort of grammar nazi and when when people if you want to piss her off very unique or or that's the most unique thing i've ever seen anything has the same issue of like you can't be more unique. Look she kills me on that one. And i'll get texts from my friends that say. Oh i just said very unique on the air apologized to wendy yourself I love finding those out because now all notice it. When i do it and i can fix it but if you heard it here first folks. He said that i'm the most unique person in a very very unique jubilee. Jay bilas literally.

You should know who he is too so or you could just always leave us. Nice review every listening to this podcast. Which by the way we read and we love them like this one that travis put into a document a week ago for me because he cares from carl that says quote. I was really disappointed. When ashley left. Well i mean. I feel like karl not to interrupt but we do have to specify like leave the disappointment. I think i think what karl means. Isn't he's not disappointed in ashley. Just wanna make sure. That's important that everybody knows i was really disappointed. Ashley left the new sports. Sports christina is a pleasant addition to the team. Katie nolan is awesome as always. Thanks and super. Relatable travis is also relatable but in more of a is that what i sound like for travis consider using a crop screenshot or the snipping tool to copy the podcast reviews into the pod duck. I agree carl. i like that. You're out here pan. Compliments you know being generous and also just sharing things. You think actionable steps tell you. He didn't listen. Because it's typed. it's typed right here in the dock so either didn't understand what you meant or heating care. He's no do it his way. And now i know travis it could fifty fifty there. It could go either way. It's a real jump ball Lastly don't forget that you can always leave a voicemail at eight six. Oh five oh six five five seven one say goodbye travis. Say goodbye christina. They're saying it. Spiritually jay bilas is saying goodbye well by love you mean it..

"A long time and so i put that thing out there and immediately both my kids like you are in no position to lecture anyone on on syntax or being able to pronounce things and and then i got started getting the geico commercial and all the things i i i didn't know new tele was Was pronounced new tele. When i first saw and i call it nutella and they were bad. That's not that bad bad but we argue. Don't call it in a tele arguing for as long as it wasn't nut ella. That would be weird. That's the only way to pronounce that. But not like it's not. It's not made from hazelnuts. Why am i. Why am i the dumb ass. I'm not jerk here. That's that makes sense. What what are your kids. Like what are they into. What a what have you learned from them. Because i feel like that's the thing non parents don't realize you a lot from your kids. My kids are awesome. And they're awesome because my wife is awesome but my my daughter's twenty six She went She's an artist so her whole life like when she was a little girl she was afraid she was like the most timid afraid kid and she was like afraid of the vacuum cleaner. She's afraid of other people should freight dogs and we thought she got a developmental disorder. She ever going to be able to go out in public and Would only eat certain things. And you know she's turned out to be this foodie worldly and she's a competitive horse rider in the hunter jumper realm. What she's yeah she's a she rides one hundred jumper and she's ridden horses her whole life and And love it. Like i don't i and i. I think i love basketball. But i don't love anything. Like she loves orces and and then she's also ridiculously talented artists. My wife's said professional artist. And then my daughter when when she was really little. My wife would bring like crayon drawing. She did at school and she'd show this to me and she showed it to me and i'd go. Oh that's that's right and handed back to her while watch basketball game or something and she would go. she's five. you realize what this is the go. no i know i had. Who is this a advanced. I don't i'm not an art prospector. So when she was about. I'd say the ten eleven twelve range you could and she still does this at a much higher level. You could give her a photograph and she could give you a pencil. Drying that was identical to the programming and fascinated by that talent. I do not have even a dash of it. It's crazy and now you know she paints and she's she's very talented sells a lot of it sold the while she was in college. And that's i've used her as an example of like she made money in college in the world's known sacks it's not that big a deal and then my son was a typical boy growing up And just followed assist around wanted to play every sport And and you know went to wake forest and he was a a walk on basketball player at wake and now works for the nba Working on their junior. Mba program did sound digital media side. And you know you. You asked what i learned from my kids like so my daughter You kind of learn About what what healthy passion looks like like. She doesn't do anything that she doesn't like. She doesn't think she doesn't to do. I don't wanna make sound that way. But she's not interested as much in what you think of what she does. She wants to be fulfilled in what she does and so she's willing to take the the path let's travel because it makes her happy and and you know i'd i'd never had that and i think i've got it now but i didn't have that when i was her age and i didn't make decisions the way she makes decisions and then my son is the most Ease the ease. The lowest maintenance kid that i've ever ever met let alone you know. Have the honor to be parent I'll tell you this story. He probably kick my ass eleven. So you know we never really. You never really ask for anything. So he's never he's never asked for you know. You always say christmas coming up birthday. Hey what do you want like good. I don't really need anything so we didn't ask you what you need. What you want. God every parent. I've gotten that he's never done that but he's never asked for anything. So we We kind of kept on him. Saying all right listen dude you gotta you gotta do this. Gotta tell us what you want. And he says well there's shoes. I like as nike shoes. So he tells his mom. Here's what it is and center kind of a screenshot of it or whatever and so my wife says to me one night were were at home and we just had dinner and she's on the internet she says j. a. I looked at the shoes. Anthony watts and And i was about to order. She goes there six hundred dollars. And i was like wendy mercedes. Wendy wendy you bought we bought tori a horse Jazz a horse and he like how much for. How much do those go for. More than six hundred yeah. I figured they eat six hundred adele. My god quite. It's not quite that much but but but you know what katie like. We always joke about how much the horse cost. But it is something bad that my daughter would be a different person without any kind. You look if your daughter's horse girl and you can afford to get her a horse you get her a horse. Yeah just pure joy. And i'm not sure that it would have caught that. It costs that much more than if she were a you basketball player. We sent her all over the country playing only tournaments that these these players plan. And so like you know and and i used to play. I used after dry on occasion very often used after driver her barn and it would be would be a pretty good hall. At least i considered it. And i wanted to my wife about. I was going to go do this. You know and my wife would say it's the barn or the mall. You choose not to go. i'll drive. i get you know that it kept her. It was a healthy activity for her that she loved and it also was a diversion from something that we felt like might not have been as positive of of an influence on her so It was like your your deer point. It's a it's privileged way to look at things because we had the means to do it but but i wouldn't change it Because of of how much it has meant to her and and how much how beautiful it is. It's really you go watch compete. And she wants to win and all that but she never like every once in a while. That horse will put her off. You know it'll come up to jump that the horse doesn't feel comfortable with and it'll just stop at. She'll fly and and she she gets up and the first thing she wants to do is make the horse feel better about it and you know it's not the horses fault. That was my fault. I took that turn to quick and stuff like that and It's really really it's a. It's been a wonderful experience to watch it. You mean you have to have real empathy to work with an animal on a team sport because it's an individual sport if you're looking at humans but you need the horse to cooperate and so you know to have to compete with something that you can't communicate with i can imagine is very very difficult so anyone who can do it. I'd endless respect for your daughter. Sounds like a cool kid. So does your son. He sounds a little a little expensive taste but he sounds like a cool. Were they good shoes. At least you remember what they were legit. They were legit. I wanted to pair after outside but But but that's the thing like you know. That was the only a that that sort of the kind of my point about this so the only time like he gets screwed because the only time he's ever ask for anything. Yeah we know exactly like what it is and how much you know instead of like. You know if he were higher maintenance we wouldn't think it was that big of a deal but but he he's taught me about You know he he's. He's accepted rolls really well like when he went to college. His decision was. Do i go to a smaller school where i can really play where where i'm good enough to play or do i go where i really wanna go but i may not. I may not play. I'll be a walk on. That doesn't get in the game that often. Any wound up. Being captain of the team is senior year and Sorta he persevered like is really cool to watch for dad. Yeah i can't imagine especially in something that's so near and dear to your heart. Are you a sneaker guy. I never see your. Oh yeah yeah. I'm a huge sneaker head where it lamad you have. Would you guess right now. It's in the hundred rain. She's but i've gotten rid of hundreds over the years and I don't know where that comes from..

"Get on a high horse wild horses standing on a soapbox and and do that stuff but the other part of it honestly is like i. I've been of like a bill. Burr i think said this you know about him and his wife he said you know. I realized my wife is a finished product. That's under museum glass and we need to keep working on me that i was like. I'm the. I'm the building that has a scaffolding around it is being worked on Like being married to the woman. I'm married to has been really helpful to me. As how even keel. She is and everything. Because i used to. I used to be more pendulum oriented myself and And i always been. I think this is a genetic thing. I've always been a world champion. Greg shoulder that if somebody jerks me around or or prove themselves untrustworthy. I'm my first reaction is that's it that's and i don't. I don't do that as much anymore although i'm quick to Like kind of be the ceo of my own life and and so if there's something that's not doing me any good I steer away from it and and don't think about. I don't think about. Like if i if i decide like you know what i'm cutting this out. I'm not dealing with this person anymore. I'm not doing it to hurt that person's feelings i'm doing it for me and And so that that's at my age. Now i feel a lot more comfortable to do things like that. Because i'm going to do. What's you know. What makes me feel better about about my exists. I guess yeah it's called care. The kids are calling it. self care. some people use it as an excuse to do things that are others harm. But this is just self self-care telling somebody that you know boundaries setting boundaries and. I've done it to where like i've said all right. You know this. This person doesn't do me any good. It's it doesn't not not not do any favors. But but it's a it's a negative influence and i'm spending way too much time on this negativity and i've i've deleted stuff for my phone just saying i'm done this not that i'm not taking the call anymore. So are saying. I'm not gonna keep going down this road And continue to go down this road it just. It doesn't do anybody any good and And i don't think that's a negative thing. No not at all. I heard self. That's very different grudge is more like i hate this person. I i very mad at them and will never forgive them. You seem open and willing to discuss in. Forgive but you're also willing to forgive yourself if you want to just you've decided it's unhealthy for you so you're not going to engage in it anymore. That's like unhealthy is the right word. That's the word. I was looking for things that are unhealthy. And yeah i was holding thing was always like if if somebody proved untrustworthy with something. Maybe you you hashed it out. Gave me you know game a game. another chance. whatever that means but Tried to tried to move forward and then it kept happening happening. Then you're gone. You know what can have plus minus ratings as well. I would encourage the have that in their lives of just like. Yeah but it's just like a little bit of like. Hey i feel like you've had somebody in my life recently resigned. You apologize for something. I forgave you and then you did the same thing. And it's like that's that's it like we're not learning and it's you know your journey and you'll six not mine anymore I'm trying think of all the millions of things if i got to any of them. I wanted to talk to you about young jesse but actually watched an interview. Where you met young jesse and that covers it. There's nothing better. I can ask him but watching your energy in that clip when he walked in and then seeing the clip of where he used. What if you like to have your name in a rap song that had to be the coolest. It was awesome. But you know there. They're still kind of thing about like. I've got kids. Who are twenty six and twenty four and so they look at me rightfully so as this old old doddering fool. That can't you know doesn't know how stoneworks doesn't know how to phone works. Not all of it. Some things i mean. I'm not a complete moron but we're definitely not as savvy is is our kids are and that's the way definitely cooler than my dad is so there's that as yeah got that as a baseline but my my kids are always like when somebody will say something. They're like all right. Well you can think what you want but we know we know he's really an idiot and and that's that's kinda fun i mean. I like that about my kids is like our kids are We kinda raise them to Have a good sense of humor to make fun of themselves. And so the for you know the first thing we do like where i'm getting hit now. My my family took me to miami for my fiftieth birthday. I was born that day before. Christmas in nineteen sixty three. So my fiftieth birthday. Were at a nice restaurant. Miami and And i didn't know what keen wall was. And so when i ordered my dinner i said i said could i get it without the quinoa and so now with this new geico commercials. I was just thinking that you are actually killing. Yeah my dad to they do the. Hey the waiter or waitress doesn't need to know your name and i was like. Oh god that's my dad my dad but it's true and like when they hit me with that stuff. We laugh our acids off. And i had put out something on instagram. The other day about Gonzaga like how to pronounce gonzaga as people say gonzaga and they've been pretty good for.

"They don't care. And and i'm not sure they should. They wouldn't care if the players got paid. They argued over the stipend. Now everybody's getting it. nobody even notices. Nobody cares They don't care what the players are paid where they fly private or what they eat. They just want their games. Yeah and the discussion of it to them then sounds like we're trying to take away their games. Anybody who's advocating for change their like. Let's just keep it how it is and i feel like the nc double a. Like most leagues. Do i think even teams on a smaller scale take advantage of that they kind of use the the public's want for ignorance than want for like just gimme my games and they kind of it just feels like i don't know it just feels like this. All is so obvious. Like when i hear somebody say Don't they don't get paid. They get an edge of free education at a at a nice school. But they don't i. I mean i know college athletes. Who didn't it couldn't go to class sometimes. Didn't have to go to class or they leave after a year and it's like well then they didn't get full college education because the classes i took freshman year if those are all i took i. You don't call that a college education for a reason so it's just like why do we keep. How long are we gonna keep letting them get away with these excuses. That don't make a lot of sense forever until until it's done on the legislative side of the judicial side so let's go government and do it. They're doing it and but most of its self interest there. Yeah the states have self interest. But i'm i'm honestly katie. I'm really surprised that so many states and in the united states congress is that interested in this. Because the truth. I thought that they'd want to stay out of this. Because it might alienate. there should be constituencies. Or if might they might feel that. They're they're states. Institutions might be disadvantaged in some way but it it's become a so they see it. I think as a civil rights issue and and it's really hard to ignore and i think the argument the oral argument. They had a week ago. Ten days ago before the us supreme court Longtime it's a fool's errand to try to. It's easier to predict the the bracket in the tournament then predict what the supreme court's gonna do argument. I mine was better than yours. Yours was better than mine. Yeah find although you're welcome for all the help you did. Motivate me to fill one out. I wouldn't have done it otherwise. So thank you actually but but you know longtime observers of the court are not sports. People said That that they didn't feel it went well for for the day. And in some of the justices said Echoed exactly what we're talking about and when that happens before the highest court in the land that's really concerning sort of for the nc double a.'s. Position i think and the status of their position going forward Well fingers crossed. I mean not to hope. For someone's demise i feel like this an organization that's been around this long so comes into kids lives at a very pivotal time. I feel like they have a lot of control. And they don't feel as much responsibility as i wish they did. And you're right. The policy is separate from people. But i wish the people who felt that responsibility would step up. Okay more jay. Bilas in a second. But i i have to tell you guys. Today's podcast is brought to you by flame bearers Flame bears is a podcast championing. The women seeking to compete in the twenty twenty one tokyo summer olympics and paralympics chairs. Their incredible often unheard stories as they liked the way for women around the world celebrate women athletes. Who don't receive media attention. they deserve. I mean this podcast has been going on and on about that. Have we not. It's problematic because representation matters. A lack of representation makes it near impossible for younger girls to see their future selves than someone who doesn't exist today we all remember being kids and wanting to look up to someone. Sure sometimes you can look up to somebody who doesn't look like you but embodies the values that you have but the younger you are the more you can see people that look like you doing stuff that you want to do the easier. It is for you to picture into work towards that goal One of the episodes feature someone you might have heard of becky sauerbrun and her husband. They chat about her experience as a female athlete and the fight for equal play. We all need hope and inspiration now more than ever. I assume that's why you guys keep telling me to watch ted lasso and i'm not gonna do it yet and have my reasons and please stop bullying me. Learn a lessons in grit ambition from elite athletes. Who happened to be female. Listen aflame bears on apple podcasts. Spotify or wherever you get your podcasts. All right back to jay bilas who is not a woman. Hey more with. Jane a second but first today's podcast is also brought to you by better help. Twenty twenty was interesting so let's do a mental health. Check in. how are you really. And what do you need right now.

"And then there have been a ton of administrators eighties and the like that are retiring now. Basically saying you know what not on my watch you guys deal with it and that's fine But but my thing is if i if they're really saying that i'm like then you should go. That's fine. you should go and there is in the back of my mind at. Don't let the door hit you on the way out and thing there when somebody says something like that but but that's within their progress like if they want to quit quit but but my thing is you know. It's funny. the game change. Like i was in college when the the last time the incident was before the supreme court and that was a case called It was called the border regions case and really what it was about were Schools were suing the nc double a. Because the nc double a. was telling schools and mandating when you could be on television and there the idea was you need to be on television sparingly. So that that we don't over saturate the market with the product and people will still go to the games. The idea was if we have all these games on television people. Stop going to the games. And we'll lose all his ticket revenue and it was profoundly stupid to look at it that way but the schools sued and they won and then then television money exploded so i didn't hear any coaches and administrators at the time saying. Hey we got a lot more money. Now which means we're paying ourselves a lot more money. This isn't the way it was supposed to be. So i'm out you know so all the all the ones that are saying now and it's really kind of funny bell say we didn't. We didn't get into this for the money. We got into this because we love the relationships as relationships or money are mutually close. But they didn't turn down the money either right. And and the implication the implication is the rest of us have gotten into it for money. And that's just not true. You know they they've proven those guys that are complaining about this have proven that you can. You can make a ton of money love your job and have great relationships with people while you make a ton of money and that's all the players are asking. Yeah and like on that same point. I remember daboh saying like i. If college athletes were paid he would retire. Because there's too much entitlement in this world. And i was just like what is what people feel entitled to be compensated for what you're entitled. How do you not see that. The unpaid amateur student is the entitled one. And but that's the system you know they. They talk like so when you see coach be rating player on the sidelines. football basketball. Whatever it may be. You'll hear coaches say well. They're just holding him accountable. Like does that mean. What does it what does that. What does accountability mean there and what what happened to the bench was the greatest motivator like then take the guy out you know so i don't that's just you know it's an excuse for bad behavior and that's not essentially what accountability means to me. But but you know look people say a lot of different things in in davos point. I get it. I don't think with all the changes. You're going to see him. Walk away from a ten million dollar your contractors. Not gonna do that but if he wants to. That's great yeah. He didn't even get into it for the money by. It's all that's all great. But i just don't see the problem you know nobody's telling A non athlete student on scholarship in there more non athlete students on scholarship athletes. Nobody's telling them. Hey you entitled you know little thing You shouldn't be able to earn or accept whatever you want the marketplace because you're getting paid now to justify a student without any obligation other than that remain enroll and but yet we say to an athlete that you're entitled that I love this one. They'll say to athletes You know you should be grateful because you're flying around on private planes You get the best. Coaching you get the best facilities you get the best food as if the coaches fly to the games on commuter right right and they're staying in different hotels and they don't you know they're eating sack lunches while the players are big fat. None of that's true it just none of it makes any sense and it kinda gets kinda gets That the the excuses and rationalizations for why players remain Sort of restricted. When no one else's it gets it gets tiresome but you have to deal with that because now you're trying to at least i am. You're trying to convince people know. Think of it this way you just trying to. Here's an example. Like i don't know how many years ago was an. Nfl officials were fighting the league for their intentions. Some other things. And i think they got locked out is either a walkout or lockout. But let's say they got locked out. They left out because we had replacement rest for a couple of games. We had replacement refs so when when they're replacement refs. I'm sitting here is an nfl fan. Gone oh my god. Get the referees. Back this sucks. And then so when they finally settled at the truth is i didn't really care whether the referee's got what they wanted or whether everything was fair and just i had football back and i was a consumer of football so i don't blame fans for not being in the weeds on this stuff because all they wanted their damn games like they want to watch their team play. They don't they don't most of the time they don't want to deal with this but when we are talking about it on the radio. Tv they get really invested in it and they get they got a. They got pretty Up to you know angered about it. And that's that's fine because i like the passionate Discussion of it but the truth is the overwhelming majority of time. They don't care. And and i'm not sure they should. They wouldn't care if the players got paid. They argued over the stipend. Now everybody's getting it. nobody even notices. Nobody cares.

"Nothing to do with the amount of revenue that's generated it has to do with systemic injustice on the gender side within the structure. And and so like to your to your point. Do we have to just chip away at this or can't we just say look. This is ridiculously unfair for a nonprofit. That says it's about gender equity to have these sort of systemic problems. We don't we shouldn't have to wait a long period of time to fix us. We should fix this now. It should never have happened in the first class And i kind of feel that way about You know athlete rights. They're not asking for any more rights than any other student as they're just asking for the same rights and and you know. I don't think it's not difficult. It's just hard for people in power to give up that power and give up that you know. They feel like they're giving up money even though they're not and why why the nc double a. couldn't step forward after those those Differences were shown in the tournament. Say we got it. That's that this is wrong and this is like the president step on this is on me. I'm in charge here. And i'm the one that put everybody in charge of their respective responsibilities and ultimately as my responsibility i don't ever feel that from them. They do. I mean they fixed it and they fixed it quickly enough that it was like so you just. You could have done that and you didn't do it in the i league. They had the weight room that we all saw fixed within a few days. I want to say and it's like well if you could fix that quickly You should've started that way baby. Can somebody come tell us what happened. Just now like make a statement of some sort that provides clarity. And i just feel like they say no. Because they don't have do well. Yeah and and the reason was that those are two separate things like they have someone that's in charge of both tournaments so there's an executive vice president in charge of both tournaments but it's clear that the overwhelming majority of time and resources are spent on the men's tournament. Now in one in one instance. I kinda get that because that's the gigantic revenue generator overall bite. But when you're talking about putting on two equivalent events what you order for one you should be ordering for the other. It shouldn't be that difficult. And what you will see. Is the weight room. Issue was just one small part of it. That was the most that was obvious Because the athletes complained about it and put it out on social media. The you know the amount of money spent on each tournament staggering the difference and it's not just because there there are savings involved in the women's tournament because the first first and second rounds are played on homesites They they might save a few bucks that way. But but the inequities are extreme. And there's not a whole lot of explanation for it other than we just didn't care enough to do it and and that's a problem that's a problem in of itself and to me. I don't see how that's so difficult that we can't say You know in in in the college space that we can't say hey if we're putting on a men's tournament degree it should be matched by what we do for the women's tournament and it is not good enough to say well. The swag bags may be different but they're equivalent value. They were equivalent value. No they weren't and the food was not equivalent and the floors that they use were not equivalent. And there's there's more room for growth in the women's game it's exploded in growth and were either committed to it or not and it's pretty clear we're not committed it also seems like we are comfortable. Invoking revenue generation when it talks it when we talk about it like that. But we can't say that the men are generating more revenue and therefore well they shouldn't they be paid like it's this weird thing where it feels like the solutions to these problems are are kind of obvious but someone's afraid to take that leap like name image and likeness female athletes. We'll be able to benefit from that greatly every female athlete every wnba player. That i've met. I walk away from it and i'm like that is an impressive person that like i want to root for and so being able to you know get out there and tell people who they are will make people more interested in watching them but i worry that the system is not going to support that they might almost stifle it like it annoys me here college coaches retiring and they're being like us air of like yeah. They're leaving because they're not excited about the changes coming to the sport like name image and likeness and. I wonder if as a person who has been a college athlete a coach. You've coached anna broadcaster. Like does it make you particularly angry when you see college. That don't seem to be advocating for the athletes as much as it feels like. They should know not angry. I just. There's a logic gap i think in in some thinking out there and i get it because it's always been that way so we have had a lot of coaches and not a lot but there have been a number of coaches that have retired at have used sort of the changing landscape of the game. The transfer portal athlete rights. All these different things by saying you know. I don't know that. I wanna do this anymore..

"The policies just aren't very good and they don't make a whole lot of sense and so i'll give you one example at the time and there there were there were people on that committee that served as real mentors to me. You know bill. Flynn who is the ad at at boston. College and wayne duke. The commissioner of the big ten At the time. And i can give you a whole list of names. That are so much older than you would never know but they were. They were so good to me and and so helpful. But when i was in high school i got recruited by lute olson At the university of iowa and he later went to arizona was hall of famer passed away just this last year. So when when. I was on my recruiting visit. Coach olsen had me over to his house. His wife made breakfast forest. Everything and on the breakfast table with were the plans to the carver. Hawkeye arena like that the actual blueprints and now that's the building. They're talking about being so old they probably need down and he had a ten year contract and he looked at me and said. I'm going to be here your whole for years and so i wound up going to do. It didn't matter but he left for the next year. When was the end of my freshman year and so when i was in that committee meeting. Are those meetings. I brought up. It is not fair that an athlete has to stay at school and and have a transfer penalty if they wanna leave. Like if i'd gone to coach leaves you know. I'm i'm sol. And these older men were telling me while you just don't understand how the system works on it You're not making a commitment to the coach you're making a commitment to the university and It's like a marriage in. Dave was so condescending condescending so i said it's like a marriage and i said well no with all respect You know if i get divorced at arthur live with my wife's parents like that's not the way that that's not the way this works. I never met anybody from the school. I only met people from the athletic department of the basketball program. The you know. I got picked up by a coach. I got dropped off airport by coach. I communicate only with the coach. You know the coaches the everything in the decision making process but i was dismissed out of hand and at the time. I thought okay. Well i'm. I'm i need to be a good soldier here. I said what i said in the meeting. I have that position but the the committee is going in a different direction so i am a committee member. I need to support what the committee is doing. And and the policy. Because i'm i need to be on board with this. So i never said anything publicly. Never disagreed even though. I vehemently disagreed and it was only when i got with the espn that i finally decided. It finally dawned on me. That i'm like wait a minute. I criticize everything except policy. Like why can i criticize a rule like a you know the charged block rule or officiating or a coach's decision coaches contracts are players decisions or player You know what a player does on or off the floor. That's all fair game. I'm going well. So's nc double a policy. And i just decided you know. I'm not going to be quiet about this anymore. I'm gonna say. I cover this sport. I'm going to cover the whole thing. And if people don't like it i separate in policy so i'm very careful to say the people at the answer. Aa are great just like everywhere else like not everybody that works. In media's great but by and large people are great. They're nice people in this business. They're nice people at the end of the nice people in new members but the policy suck and when they suck. I'm gonna say so. I don't to your earlier point. I don't go into a game and go god. I can't believe. I have to cover this exploitation of athlete. Now i i i made a separate you know what's good about the game and then when it's time to talk about policy i talk about policy but but i don't do it. You know at the duke. North carolina game and the waning moments talk about. I can't believe these exploited athletes have to put up with us. Because you have a. You have a personal relationship with the game of college basketball and just basketball in general. So it's like a you understand the merits of it better than most and you also understand the negative side of policy or is it gonna get fixed because from the way outside anything pertaining to the ncwa. I'm like this is going to require me to do a ton of research to even start to understand. It's all very confusing to wrap your head around and it just feels like it's always a winless game it's just like there's no way that any of this is going to change and if it does it's going to change so slowly that it is it going to get better. Do you think yes. Yes over time it will. I think it's i think it's actually moving pretty rapidly right now given that you've got all of these States passing name image likeness legislation. And they're doing it because it's a competitive disadvantage not to do it and sort of. That's the way competition works. It really shows that the athletes have tremendous value. Otherwise you wouldn't see these states moving to do this in. Bipartisan fashion And congress is getting involved. The supreme court's deciding a case right. Now that's that could have a profound impact on on college sports and the way its run being okay. The i kind of look at this whole thing. The way the same way i look at it issues of social justice and gender equity in all that like no know this. This last year was it. Was i think more than anything any other time. We saw how how screwed up. The system is with regard to gender equity just with the tournament. Men's and women's basketball tournaments. And i don't see how it's such a difficult concept for the answer. Aa to wrap their heads around that the men's basketball tournament. The women's basketball tournament are two weights on the same bar. And we've not been able to lift that bar because the men's basketball side is weighted more heavily than the women's basketball side.

"Affect me. And then i've learned a lot and grown from it. I think that i stop shock for me. Everything was a shock for. May i mean. I think similar to what you're you're feeling and saying that i definitely learned a lot but you know what i consider work like. I don't think what we do is work. We put in a lot of time into it and and there is a lot of commitment and effort. I'm not suggesting that it's not but you know. I worked as a lawyer for a long time. And that was real work Where where. I had no choice in the matter and and it wasn't all it wasn't a lot of fun i mean it was work So i don't count. What i do now is work. I because i enjoy it. So much It the only thing i think is about what i do now is travel. The travel is is that gets on gets that gets to you after a while and honestly katie. That's the only thing that'll get me out of of. This job is travel. When i decide you know what i've had enough. I can't do this anymore. And travel at this pace and You know when you know all the tsa people your airport. A you got a pro. You got a problem like a regular doesn't right. i am a regular i know. All and they're they're exceedingly nice. And i wouldn't want their jobs but you know having your toiletries in a plastic bag for for that long of the year is is probably not a good thing overall by you know the job so much fun. I don't consider to be work. Even though we work you know were doing our thing into the late hours of the night sometimes and all day long and You know what i think. Most people the funny part about my existence is my law colleagues. Would trade places with me in a second. They think what i do is so cool and then my espn colleagues. Think that my law degree gives me the ability to walk away. Whenever i feel like it and i don. I don't look at it that way. But but that's kinda funny how they feel like it. Some kind of leverage that you know that i can just walk out hang out my shingle again. Practice law like. I don't need my job. I really like it And i do feel like. I need it but it's funny. It's funny that perspective that that people have about their existence that they look at somebody else and go. That guy will walk away. Whatever he wants. I must be really cool. Funny pablo pablo tori. And i were talking about it and we came to the conclusion and to know if you agree with this that people who want to be lawyers when they grow up really just want to be stephen a. Snus there's some because like the lawyering part of the law part is is hard i imagine and not as fun necessarily as the like litigation the arguing. I know i read somewhere. You told the story about a time you caught somebody in a lie and you got to kind of back into a corner and then be like a ha which i bet is the best feeling ever when you can catch somebody with receipts but most of law is not that right most of laws learning it and having to do all that seems like a lot of paperwork j yeah there is some of that i mean the the interesting part for me is is lawyers. Don't argue we argue on television. You know when when when. I'm arguing on television. And taking a position. I take a authority position and argue it to the death and and my arguments as a lawyer were far different and And you know the temperatures much lower when you're making a legal argument or arguing a case and then but it has helped me. I think my legal training my my law degree has really helped me it with my television career in that I try to stress. Test my arguments i So i go back and forth with my colleagues all the time and and trying to find the holes in in an argument and the best way to explain something whether it's it's a issue or whatever and that's helped a lot. I think my my legal training up a lot and because really as lawyer what you're trying to do at least as a litigator you're trying to persuade and so When i'm in a when. I'm in a legal setting on different committees When i when. I tried to make a point in a committee meeting. I don't sound like i do sit not game day. You know where your pounding the table saying. This says the right thing. This is the way it is. You know you don't do it. that way. We try to build consensus. He could you could go you in the last you a long one of the things that i think i love so much about. You is that so. I didn't grow up with connection to college sports. And we know i went to hofstra. They abandoned the good nickname before. I got there. They've been abandoned. Their football team wants. I was there. They they haven't been like this begin for me of like college athletics so we just don't have a connection with it. I came to it too late in life. And it's sometimes is hard for me to separate when i watched college sports though like at sadness i guess maybe the wrong word but i just feel like the athletes are being taken advantage of and it's a personal opinion and i don't ask anyone else to hold it but there are times when i'm watching that i feel like it's not cool for me to support this machine that i think might be in ways taking advantage of the players and you are somebody who isn't doesn't shy away from talking about that and it seems to me like that would be very difficult given the fact that you are a part of the bigger machine or covering the machine and i. I find that that feels like it had to be. I don't wanna say that it's like brave of you to do that. But i feel like you must have some like a very strong resolve to know when to take a stand and how to cover things and i'm just curious to know where where that comes from for you. Well it started. When i was in college so when i played basketball at duke One of my a advisers at duke On the in the athletic department had along with the atlantic director. Had put my name up to be an athlete representative on the committee called the a long range planning committee and they wound up selecting me to serve on that committee so i was one of two athletes was a swimmer from from ucla. And i replaced a the outdoor on outgoing of quarterback in alabama guy named walter lewis at the time and so i served for about two two and a half years. I'd say on that committee and that left me behind the curtain. As to how policy was made how the aa worked and the people who want the status quo to remain within the structure probably would have rather. I never got involved in that. Because that's how. I learned how screwed up things were and and it helped me at a at a young age as a young adult separate policy from people because the people on that canadian people within the structure were great and our great..

"Hello peanuts welcome to sports. The podcast that end with a question mark but has a lot of questions. I haven't changed the intro for thursday podcasts yet. That's my bad but it is thursday on katie nolan. That means i have the guest in today's guests very excited slash kind of nervous about ladies and gentlemen. It's jay bilas. Hi j katie. The sound of one hand clapping. I'm so excited to have you here. I was just explaining to you in a very quick way with the point of this whole thing is it's that i've met a lot of cool people in this industry Some of surprised me with how down to earth. They are oral. Be honest the fact that they even know who. I am And you are one of those people. And i wanna introduce those people to my audience and be like jay bilas essentially is a real one. I think is kind of the point But we don't know each other that well you've just been really nice to me as somebody who you worked on the more sports side of the industry and i'm more kind of tangential. I guess i would say. I wouldn't have expected you to have any idea who i am but you you do somehow and you're very nice to me and so i guess first question is thanks and why well the one. I don't know that. I have been that's nice to hear i guess But you're a colleague of mine a valued one and you're somebody in the industry. I knew before you came to espn and all thought you're not only really talented but really genuine and that comes across with you on the air. I mean sometimes like i think you noted that you don't always know who you're listening to or watching But you can get a feeling for people and and you give you give a very clear feeling about who you are and how trustworthy you are and how you know what a nice person so. That's really nice. That's all this is. I just want you to complement me for. We should also know. It is what april seventh which means you just ended the busiest time of your do you get to chill now or is that just like a mess. You know you absolutely get the little bit but the nba draft coming up on next so you kind of dive into that. There's always stuff to do but it's certainly less travel right now and kind of more You know you have more family obligations that you can attend to instead of saying. Hey i gotta know. I have to be somewhere else this year. I was home more because of the pandemic obviously and it's funny when i left for the acc tournament I told my wife. I'm going to be gone because i had to go after the acc tournament i had to go up to espn in connecticut for several days for selection sunday. And all that so. I told my wife i'm going to be gone for nine straight days. So and she said well you said that last year and your back in two days a year so she's kinda look at the time time time with me out of the house. I know i mean at this point. I think a lot of people can relate to that of the like yay yell. Miss you blah blah blah. But you can go. it's okay. What was that like for you last year. I know i remember. I was in the grocery store Buying groceries for the first time in forever. Because i figured we might be locking down pretty soon when i got the notification that the tournament was not happening. What was that day like for you and then what did what did that do. Obviously what effect that has on your year. Well it was similar to everybody else but it was a little bit different in that. I i have a really good friend. Who's a physician and despite the of mine reached out to me probably ten days. It may be early march. I'd say march first and said listen Just friend you need stink. Think about not flying anymore for the rest of the year and has what and he said. This is pretty a serious and and this is going to change our lives and you need. You need to really consider that. And had one more game day to do at dayton and then And then we're going to go to greensburg for the tournament so i flew that one more time to date. And then he started sending me all these things to read about About not only the virus but out you know the the fact that it was going to be declared a pandemic pretty soon in what that meant and then what. That was the first time. I'd ever heard flattening the curve so i was reading all these articles on it before i got to the acc tournament. And so i was pretty well versed on what was happening at least more so than i would have been otherwise. Thanks to this buddy of mine and then the wednesday. It was the the morning that rudy gobert tested positive. I was standing out in front of the hotel with dan. showman my broadcast partner. Who's from canada and he had just come from toronto and had said while we're standing waiting for ride had said you know you you guys in the united states are not taking this as seriously as you need to and i i i remember that hit me like a ton of bricks and when the the next morning or that day the world health organization declared it a pandemic and i thought that was a far bigger deal than the rudy gobert positive thing that was just sports coming to grips with the reality that the rest of the world was kinda dealing with before sports. Got a clue honestly. We were the last like the sports world was the last to get it. Yeah they they cancelled all these events all over the country Colleges had shut down already in their sports teams. We're still plan. I mean that was such a disconnect So when i when i went home i wasn't sure whether it's gonna be two weeks or a month or whatever but i i knew that that when i went home After the probably march twelfth. I went home that night After work in the whole day sorta on the cancellation side. And i knew. I wasn't going to leave my house for quite a while and it ended up being when. How long was it before you went back. Went to work but before you went back to two into the world because for me. It's like i i've just started to go. I haven't had to leave. Some people could still do remote and stuff but most of your job involves traveling. When did you have to start doing that again. It was a long time until basketball. Season started again My wife and i cancelled everything we were planning on doing that summer. We stayed home the whole summer. Our family our kids came home. We have older kids So they were out in the working world. They came as to stay with us during that whole period so there was some positives to it. But i'm a in addition to my my job with espn. I'm i'm still technically. I'm a practicing lawyer up on the side folks just casually also a lawyer. But it's pretty casual. 'cause i might my. I'm still firm. I started with But my my title now is of counsel which is a nice way of saying. I don't do anything of real value anymore. But i used to go into my office every single day that i was in town. If i was in town. I'd go into my office. I get some stuff done. I might leave early. But i would. I went in. I haven't been in my office in a year. Because there's there's no reason for me to go in you know the the the lawyers that are huffing. You know kind of day to day in our firm. They only go in Every other week and we have shifts of how we do. Thanks so now that i'm you know. We're getting into vaccination period. I'll start going back into my office. But i'm not i haven't been there in a year. Which is of hard to fathom really. Is it like are you a guy. I mean you work very hard. You have to very demanding jobs even though you say that you don't really lawyer are you a person who's always work work work work work and this year kind of a was it comfortable for you to take a year off. I guess is what i'm asking or was it shocking or did you learn anything in this like forced. Stop because for me. I've just worked worked worked in crazy different weird jobs that i didn't. I don't think. I anticipated how much just this abrupt halt would affect me. And then i've learned a lot and grown from it. I think that i stop shock for me. Everything was a shock for. May i mean..
2021 College Basketball Bracketology With Jay Bilas
"Feels like you might be the busiest man in america right now. So thank you for making some time for me man. I appreciate it but busiest mannered. America's this is the best time of year. So i'm happy to be busy. Jay bilas is literally and figuratively towering. Figure in the world of college basketball so it is about nine forty five pm eastern on selection sunday. You've been on tv all day. I've seen you offering wisdom's. I've seen you gas bagging as you yourself from time and again i'm curious jay. How long does it take you to fill out your bracket while we have to do it in about two minutes one. We're on the air during this brattle. G selection show. So i it's sort of the the first thoughts that you have and and you wind up picking an upset or to In each region in the first couple of days. But then i wind up going pretty chalky after that and And then i'll i write an article called the more than five minute bracket where i think about it for more than a couple of minutes and And i don't do any better. So i'm not sure that my My first instincts aren't are just as good well. I'm glad to get you somewhere between the first and second drafts of history. Because i'm staring at an empty bracket you have hastily filled out yours and i want to get into this because we have the top four seeds gonzaga baylor illinois michigan their top lining the four geographic regions jay. That aren't really geographic regions this year. Because everybody's gonna be crammed into indianapolis in something that feels bubble like is there one team among those four top seeds. That seems feels the most vulnerable to you. Yeah michigan Because of isaiah livers You don't know what this stress reaction and his foot whether he's gonna play and if he does play whether he's going to be the same. I mean machines a good team without him but they're elite offensively with him Because of how skilled he is He's a good passer. Good cutter good square. He's a terrific scorer but without him I think there are a lot more beatable if you will And they have a different. I i do think they have somewhat of a difficult path. alabama is the to in their region and And i think alabama has got a very good chance to to reach a final four What's what's the best thing. I think bobby for the the big ten teams as they're out of the big ten now and they don't have to they don't have to beat each other up and they can go take a swing at somebody else. And i think they're all gonna like that. So i wanna get into the alabama thing. You just mentioned it. They're sitting right below michigan as the two seed and jay. I'm still staggered by. I guess the following collection of words second-seeded alabama versus fifteen seeded. Rick pitino and iona. So let's take the first half of that matchup. I people know alabama obviously as a football institution the football institution. What they know about their basketball team. Yeah alabama is is really talented and really good This year in basketball. Their coach nate. Oats is a math guy. He is an analytic sky. So last year they shot ton of threes. He believes in free throws open threes and layups and And so they're not a lot of mid range shots taken But this year. They're they're excellent defensively. That may be the best part of their team is. They can really guard their long armed and athletic on the wings. They've got a player named herbert jones. who has always been a really good defender. He's six eight He's really kind of a point guard at six eight and he does everything. He's kind of a triple double type player and defensive player of the year. In the league in the sec. And the player of the year in the league And i think he makes them different. So they're legit. They could have been a one seed worthy of it but because of how good baylor gonzaga have been they were they were locks and then And then how. How good michigan wound up being and then illinois. I don't think anybody would argue with those four is number one seeds but alabama was the clear Fifth overall so the other

Who was Sirimavo Bandaranaike
"Today. We're talking about the world's first woman to lead as a prime minister. She defied all expectations to take her position and permanently changed the legacy of her country. Let's talk about CD Malvo Nike. CD Malvo Bundle Nike was born city map rap lot on April Seventeenth nineteen sixteen, and what was then known as the country of Salen. She was the eldest of six siblings. Both her father and mother were prominent in the Sinhalese community. That's an ethnic group that forms the majority of the population of Modern Day Sri Lanka at the time saline was a British colony. Cassation many of the top families in the country took on governmental roles and British names even said, he must father Barnes rat watt was named after prominent British general nonetheless, city must family care deeply about remaining Buddhist and preserving Sinhalese culture wherever they cut when city matern eight her parents sent her to a Convent Boarding School in Colombo the nation's capital under the British colonial rule. This was the best possible option for education. Still, her parents also took care to maintain their cultural traditions native language. When city finish her education she spent years touring the country doing social work including delivering food and medicine. She hiked through jungles and rough terrain to help organize and develop Bilas as a result, she gained a positive reputation throughout the island. In nineteen forty city my married a top government official named Solomon West Ridgeway Dias. Bandaranaike in a grand high profile wedding. The two were considered a perfect match. While city must husband played a more anglicized role in the colonial government city, my herself understood the needs of those living in rural areas. Said Ema, and Solomon had three children. Initially said he must professional role was largely that of an attentive wife. I nineteen forty-eight Salen was headed towards independence from Britain and city Mos home was packed to the brim with her husband's political associates, discussing strategy and the future of the country Solomon viewed his wife's role as a submissive one. Still she became a valuable political consultant. She was the one who convinced him to resigned his political position in nineteen fifty one. After he resigned he created the Sri Lankan Freedom Party or S L F R, which sought Sinhalese control of the country and a democratic socialist government city. Ma. Aggressively campaigned for Solomon in the following years and by nineteen fifty six, he won by a landslide and started instituting left wing and Sinhalese centered policies despite this victory, some of Solomon's political action. So divisions and tensions between salons various ethnic groups including the Tamil people in one thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, nine, he was murdered in his own private garden. City Mo was devastated even so she took action to fight for her husband's legacy. The very next year sitting you took leadership of the Party and was voted in as the world's first woman prime minister she would serve as the leader of the SFR for the following forty years. City must served as prime minister on and off over the next few decades prioritizing the same democratic socialist policies as her husband, she strived to raise the quality of life of her people and to reduce the overall inequality in her country. Following a win in the nineteen seventy election city. Ma introduced a new constitution that ended salon status as a British Commonwealth realm and renamed the country. Sri Lanka. Her focus on empowering Buddhism and the Sinhalese people alienated the Tummy people during one term in power. An uprising against her party had to be defeated with international military aid from India and Pakistan in the nineteen eighties. Economic troubles in the country accusations of corruption led to a crushing political loss by nineteen eighty-three tensions between the Tamil and the majority Sinhalese people boiled over into a bloody civil war that lasted until two thousand nine. Sumita attempted to repair the damage caused by discrimination against the Tamil but the divide was severe and her political power was waning along with her popularity by nineteen ninety, four city Mas Daughter Chandrika became prime minister, and then later the president of the Country Chandrika appointed her mother as prime minister but by then the constitution had changed. So the prime minister position was only supplementary to the role of the president offering little actual power. Serena remained in some form of office until a few months before her death she passed away on election day shortly after casting her vote at the age of eighty four. Though city Malvo's political legacy is complicated. She paved the way for future female heads of state and lead through political hardships with strength.
John Thompson took a chance on hapless Georgetown ... then worked a miracle
"Jay Bilas here because there's big college basketball breaking news this morning the death of John Thompson Junior age of seventy eight, one, thousand, nine, hundred, four NCAA championship winner the first African. American. Coach to take team to the men's College Basketball Championship his best player is now Georgetown's coach his son John. Thompson the third eventually followed him as head coach as well with Craig there in the middle giant for what he did for Eric African Americans in a giant with what he did in the game. Jay joins us on the Shell Pennzoil performance line this morning Jay good morning for those that may be too young or don't understand the scope of what John Thompson Junior meant to college basketball. How would you sum it up? He was a giant in in basketball both literally and figuratively, and he did so much for the game not only on the x No side that you did a substantial amount there. You know his Georgetown Teams especially when you got nineteen, eighty, seventy, nine, eighty through the early nineties they were a force and the best defensive coaches in the history of the game, his teams were very disciplined. Very smart and very together and that that's why they were so great defensively, it wasn't just that they were athletic. they were smart and disciplined. And almost went to the final four in nineteen eighty when John lost a a one point game to Iowa and that was lute Olson's first final four and lute Olson passed away a little earlier last week But John, Thompson. was that he was also fought for social justice before it was it was cool if you will. Think. You'll remember back in the eighties there was legislation by the NC double called proposition forty two. That put in a entrance requirements and they were disproportionately affecting African Americans and John Thompson and a game I. Believe it was Boston College got up before the tip and walked off the floor and protest with a towel over his shoulder and and you know he took a stand and took a stand on on multiple issues He was not always popular because the things that he was saying that time was really uncomfortable for for people to hear. And you can imagine I mean are people are uncomfortable. Now think how it was back in the in the late Seventies. Early Eighties one John Thompson was was setting a standard and with standing up on social issues. He he was a, he was a a great great person a man of of really high character and You know you don't want it to get lost what a great coach was but he was also a great man.
Mary Trump warns against a 2nd term for Trump
"On a night with every poll showing Joe Biden and a commanding lead and the latest NBC poll showing Joe Biden Eleven points ahead of Donald Trump. Mary trump told Rachel why she still lives in fear. Of. A second trump term in office. You write about that in the book as if you are genuinely fearful, that second term could be qualitatively more dangerous for the country than his first term was. Yeah. And I WANNA I wanna make something really clear. This is beyond partisanship. This is so beyond party. We need to be thinking about this as Americans. We need to be thinking about what who we want to be. As a people going forward I hear people say all the time. This is not who we are. This is exactly who we are right now. So. Continuing along this path, which is exactly what would happen if Donald, were to be elected in twenty twenty would. I absolutely believe be the end of the American experiment I do not believe there's any coming back from this. There are too many enablers who are for whatever reason can to enable him Bill Bar has gutted the Justice Department Mike. POMPEO HAS JUDD A. Gutted the. State Department we are in serious serious danger here. And unfortunately, that is no longer hyperbolic. That's just the way it is. Now, a veteran of the Hillary. Clinton campaign that won more votes than Donald Trump, but still came in second in the electoral. College Maxwell is with us. She is in MSNBC political analyst, and she is the author of the new book, the end of white politics how to heal our liberal divide surly, not let me begin with the breaking news of the night that Mary trump told Rachel motto that she has heard Donald Trump used the N. word as well as antisemitic slurs. It's the least surprising news of the day I'm but I do think it is important because I think what Mary Trump's book. I'm almost all the way through. It's fantastic and her perspective. Particularly as a clinical psychologist is interesting in it puts it apart from the other books about trump and the inner workings of the White House, in perhaps parts of his family, and the reason. Why is because it's really a validation of many of the things that were watching from the outside. Right the news that. that he has used racial slurs in private should be the least the rising news because of how he speaks in public about those same groups of people, and so I think what it does is it validates what many of us in the media in analyst like myself have been saying from the beginning Donald Trump is racist, and he behaves like a racist, and he talks like a racist, and he most importantly implement policies that deeply hurt. Communities of Color and bat is the the danger it all. Just heard Mary trump use the phrase beyond party that this election be beyond party because we just heard her layout, the danger of a second trump term filled with trump enablers. And doesn't that doesn't what married trump just laid out? Doesn't that alone? He'll the liberal divide at least for one day on election day. Look I think that the coalition. That will hopefully lead to Joe Biden. Presidency is made up of common sense, and like minded people who want to protect and preserve this American experiment as she said and want to preserve those institutions like the State Department and the Justice Department and the things that make America what it is, but also you know to my the point that I'm trying to make in my book. Is that the coalition that Joe Biden these? These is very much a coalition that needs to be intentionally engaged by the campaign going from today until election day, because many of those voters stayed home, twenty sixteen, who had turned out in twenty twelve, in fact, more many more million of Bilas voters stayed home, versus the seventy, seven thousand, who gave trump victory, and I think that's where the focus and be benefit, and the opportunity is for the Joe. Biden campaign.

Excited to be invited that. Doing. Yes I, mean, and I know we had a conversation even before we started recording this about how we are feeling in the world. Yeah, it's just it's tough. It's you know there's so many feelings, and funnily enough and I feel like this thing you get when you have wonderful clients I do. They have been asking me back, so we start off every session with feelings. Check in using the feelings chart. And just been like. Give them all to me, and then let's break it down. Let's talk about where it is in the body, but they're just like, but you have to hold on my stuff. And I know I'm not the only person you see the are you don't genuine questions. Being asked in I will not dishonor up and giving them an answer. And, other some people say that it's inappropriate and all that Miranda. Clients, ask I know it's because they actually want to know. sort of rotary questioned that you know like back in the day when we used to get on elevators with people you gotta be. Exactly, for small time, and that's something that I try to remove from clients on day one. So when I ask you how you doing. Tell me fine you to ask me. How do on the like now I?

Then in this space. But I'm also grateful that I get the be there with my clients as we move through this together. Yeah, you know I think there is something really powerful about that right because you know of course in our training. Don't make the therapy about you that kind of thing, but that's not what this is right. This is a shared space of humanity, especially given everything happening in the world right now you know so I think it is important that win clients. Ask You our you doing that. It's okay to share. Human's a human without it becoming about you. Exactly. Yeah, it's like hey, all this I. Appreciate Your asking me and checking in, but let's look like. Let's get back to you. Always rerouted right. You've definitely not about me, but they're just certain candidates that I've been examining myself throughout. The ethics of our practices in Raleigh right and in my quest to continue to divest from white supremacy whiteness. Myself and the therapist hired. This is part of the work that we are doing that. I'm just like no. We have to examine the ethics in all none that came my way. Does it actually make sense for the people we serve become songwriting know that mental help industry has historically been white male folk it's. That has been the case then. Chances are the ethics that they let us have. Our white male focused. Driven and driven by capitalism white supremacy. Additional work. Come on with this open in prayer. Come on come on. Yeah absolutely I mean, and I don't think it's any like accident. Right that in our facebook groups right in the black facebook groups with their busy that we will often talk about how our practice looks very different. You know like there are lots of things that we have been taught that we figured out. Don't work for US and don't work for the clients that we serve exactly yeah. Absolutely absolutely so I am thankful for you joining us, you know I know. We had a little bit of a back and forth like. Does it feel okay to do this? Does it feel you know wrong? So like do an insecure recap, but also decided that that happiness, and and you know the the warm hug is how I describe. It felt like we got on Sunday night. was something also be celebrated into? Give people a little bit of a reprieve right that we can continue to focus on the fight, but also have moments where we are being restored and celebrating joy and. And for Black People George seeking joy seeking pleasure seeking peace, all of these things are revolutionary as well. These are not things that have been afforded to black beat, so we do deserve moments where we get to re engage with things that help us to feel good that make us laugh that make us engage in a different way. We can still fight this fight, and we are so fighting this fight, even in the midst of rest, even in the midst of seeking pleasure.
Trump to declare national emergency to combat the coronavirus
Another Weekend Of Protests In Hong Kong
"In Beijing waiting for Hong Kong's pro democracy protests to dissipate had another disappointing weekend as has been the case every weekend since June in Hong Kong streets have hosted large-scale demonstrations some of them violent at least eighty nine people were arrested and at least eighteen injured a more peaceful protests by university -versities students has taken place today. Lon joined from Hong Kong by Monocle Hong Kong Bureau Chief James Chambers James on the scale of the recent demonstrations demonstration's. How much cleaning up needed to be done this morning? Yes well. Hong Kong got back to to work again this morning and it seems to be a a case of similar things on Monday mornings cleaning up the MTR's railway stations substations. We've become a big focus for for protest kind of violence and vandalism over the last few weeks it has felt felt a bit quieter today in in and around one NJAI and admiralty and Causeway Bay where lots of the the clashes were last night and little shops. You haven't opened so there is a a bit of a clearing up going on and repairing but you know I I got the the MTA to into this morning. using some of the stations is that were vandalized last night's and things are being repaired and Hong Kong's basically getting back to business as is the way of these things it is the violence that commands mom for headlines but how representative of the ongoing protests are those incidents well. The the organization that tries is to or the arrange these big marches. They tried to organize one on the weekend but the police didn't give its authority to go ahead so officially it it it. It wasn't an authorized. March people still went ahead and did it. The the numbers were nowhere near as as large as these marches have been in the past and but as usual these these peaceful get togethers quickly turned into violent clashes so it's definitely a case of of the general the average. Joe Is not necessarily turning out which is big as numbers that happened in the past but the that kind of hardcore what the government would call that radical element. They're still very much on the streets and it's those those people who are pushing these protests into new when I guess more dangerous areas the clashes and the standoff between police and protesters are continuing there's been some worrying signs and worrying scenes where we saw two traffic cops basically surrounded by protesters says carrying Molotov cocktails and taking their guns out in defense people might not realize that police in Hong Kong every police person in Hong Kong carries a revolver aside on and so it wouldn't take much for these these clashes between between police and protesters to really turn ugly for something for someone to to lose their life another worrying development is the clashes between regular Hong Kong's split between the protesters and and the pro government side there was one one one guide got badly beaten up by a group of protesters during over the weekend and had to be taken to hospital in a very critical condition and then these kind of scraps and fights between between the two sides continued into Areas Areas Fortress Hill and north points at Sunday night so there's the on one hand. There's the there's the ongoing caution police in protests but it's also kind of spitting being society more and we're seeing just a regular members of the public get involved in punch-ups. Just finally just quickly detect any a abatement in popular support for the protests as the economic realities of this begin to bite. There's some suggestion that Hong Kong's first recession in a decade is imminent tourist numbers down forty percent and so on. I'm not sure whether it's the the those economic figures that are getting people so to kind of new support for this but I do see from the government side that that the Chief Executive Carrie Lam when she withdrew the bill formerly Sh- I think she does does feel like I have had a big impact. She's very much visible on the streets and at events and speaking at things like she used to be before these protests kicked off because you know at the end of the the day Lotta people a lot of regular people came out because of this extradition bill that extradition bill is only one other five demands that protesters are making but when it comes to the ordinary people in the extradition bill has now been removed. I think that it has has led to a lot of people deciding that they're no longer going to unnecessary turnout in in as many as big big numbers. I don't think that the support is necessary dwindled for a for the protesters but it's very much the more the more radical uncommitted people that we see turning out on the streets day in day out. I don't see that necessarily going away. The the seventieth anniversary for the People's Republic in China is on October the first and that will have a big unifying effect on the protesters so I I feel like big will come out again but at the moment i`ts expect over over the same in the in these kind of smaller skirmishes James Jay Bilas
2019 NCAA championship: Virginia wins its first national title
"Like this. Virginia that seventy five seventy three next to going over time. How big is younger. My goodness. Monsters twenty seven hundred Westwood One. Aa radio network hunter coming up big twenty seven points in the Egypt game. Kyle guy had twenty four Virginia hits all twelve free. Throw attempts in the overtime period. And they come away with the title as you heard eighty five seventy seven in OT. They beat Texas Tech the eighth national title game to go to overtime the first since two thousand eight when Kansas beat Memphis the first national title game between two teams that had never previously appeared in the title game since nineteen seventy nine Magic Johnson's Michigan state team against Larry bird's. Indiana state team Virginia wins this one first title game between schools that had previously never wanted title since nineteen Ninety-one UNLV beat Duke, Tony Bennett becoming the ninth active division one coach to win a national title. I think it was a terrific game to see how these. Guys, played the one thing I said to him before in the locker room. I said you guys faced pressure that no team in the history of the game is faced will really all year. But but being down fourteen against garner web. I said, and you did not panic in that moment, and you fought, and you found a way out I said that I think has prepared you for this moment to the handle the pressure or the the intensity of national championship game. And these guys stepped up to me that was it appeared from Istambul to be a high level game. And you know, we scored eighty five that was in that setting. So good stuff. Hey, coach Bennett. Zach peerless Augusta free press there's a picture in your house. You've talked about before these three guys. Jay huff part of that twenty sixteen class. They've seen a lot of things now and their time at you've yet what are the emotions now attached to that picture? And you know, how does this change that picture in the feelings that you'll see when you see it? Yeah. When they came on the recruiting. Visit remember telling them, look, you're. The foundation has been laid by guys, you know, Joe, and Malcolm are here and all the guys went before. And we had one Sommese championships who've been to be lead eight I said, we're asking to build on that foundation. Even at that house on the hardest step. But if you're willing said, we'll take a chance at mentioned, the rocky post just I said, I want guys wanna chance to title fight and see them come in either as young men or boys and grow into men this season. And I'll mention what happened last year that that can only mature you. I don't know of anything else that would allow these guys to build a handle this situation, the playthrough stuff and to have a perspective and poise and resiliencey unless they went through something that hard, and they're very there's really good players. They don't probably get enough credit. Well, I think someone do their town. But they had something different about them collectively. I just one of our themes. I told them before the Auburn game as just bring your two fish and five loaves. It's a story in the bible. And I said it'll be enough. I said it'll it'll be enough for the masses. I said when you guys play the right way, the collectiveness of it takes over. And I've watched it, and I've stepped back, and I've seen this now seen mature through everything. And for them to do what they did, you know and how they've won. It's a great story really ofensive -ly. It seemed as if the Andre took charge there at the end you telling take charge or sometimes it seems like he's trying not. To take. That's you know, Dan regularly. Let's come in that he he I think he grew up in a way in this tournament in the second half of the Auburn game. And definitely and he was getting his shots. But he just he you saw them and that when he puts that into boy, it's he special, but no he trying to get on the ball ties. So good and our players. They understand. He's like all right. We gotta get him the ball in these situations and go to work, and you know, we did call. I'm not sure what the answer the question. We did. Call an action form to hit that three in the corner. And then one time time to great pass. But he yeah. I thought he really showed an aggressiveness that we needed. You. Need your top players to step up and make plays. And he did it on both ends you just speak to one that the poyser guy showed the overtime. And also the the previous games prepare them for that. They didn't seem either out of gas. They didn't to motion in handling the overtime. No. Well, I tell you we we had. Three Saturday, Monday games. We played Duke at home, and then we had to go to Carolina. And I I think I said this in the podium before. But I said this is how it's going to be in the tournament. And this is how we're going to prepare on Sunday. And and we did that every time we had those games, and we did it in the NCAA tournament that day in between and they knew what to expect. And I said you're built for this. You're prepared for this. Because this is what we did. And we started that process in January and that Carol do Carolina weekend. And I said just get after it, and we worked in between a lot of people's walked, actually, I don't know. What people do I just know from my experiences a coach in the Pac ten home important that day in between and how you prepare well prepare well and get after it. And so I think they they stepped in the moment they face pressure through the year through the turnament and all that stuff played into it. And that a lot goes to our strength coach, Mike Curtis. I mean, he has those guys as finely tuned machines. And and they just they work. We were smart at the end of the year with how much rest we gave them and prepare them. It's just a balance. Obviously, it it hit Tony Bennett with the national championship ninth. Active coach for the title for our current ACC coaches, Mike, shefty, ROY Williams, and Jim boeheim being the others Virginia six team to win. Multiple overtime games of the NC double A tournament in route to winning national title there. The first to do. So since era Zona in nineteen ninety seven. Cavs sixty six and six over the last two seasons. Best win percentage in division. One college basketball live crew restated Seth Greenberg, Jay Williams, and Jay Bilas, the every time in the last three games when things looked grim at the end of the game for junior late made plays. It looked grim at the end of regulation in this one when they were down to and then all of a sudden tied Rome drives, the baseline Texas Tech over helps the Audrey hunter. Who was spectacular? He wasn't good. He was spectacular twenty-seven points nine rebounds that three he hit out of the right corner is the biggest reason that Virginia's able to win the game. That was a spectacular shot. It took advantage of one of the very few defensive mistakes that Texas Tech made throughout the game. And they hung in there, and and grand fashioned to have a chance to win at the end.

"I get all that. But but to me Florida state beats our competes with anybody when they get in the passing lanes off the ball. It was it was stark to me the difference first and second half against Clemson when Florida state was just kind of playing off the ball. And then it was obvious. They were down at halftime and somebody whether it was, you know, stand Jones or Leonard Hamilton got after their backsides because they got out in passing lanes. And quite frankly, Clemson had no chance in the game. It's it's one of the rare teams that I don't just say I got make shots because when they get out after you, man. It's yes, I think Florida state to talk about their intensity maintained. And I think he's got to get the eight or nine eleven and I think they gotta figure out that point guard situation and look you Mussa game. Like, you did do we lost Duke about half court shot that one year? It was the hardest thing, and then we had some medical issues with some parents that that thing that thing's gonna give hangover but league play it's like off, man. It's like, you know, be making that comeback against you in the Bahamas. You gotta have a short term memory. You got you beat the time before. So I get it. We're one to get Atlanta. You were bigger house bigger. I'm a big, hey, we come back Bilas Bilas has his top sixty eight teams out on ESPN dot com. And as Bilas says get your top teams from the only expert you need to know. And guess who that is that's Bilas. He'll join sticks..
Glass review – M Night Shyamalan's superheroes assemble
"The first movie we were going to talk about is glass by m night Shyamalan. This is the third movie in the kind of unpredictable and almost unnecessary trilogy of unbreakable split. And now glass nineteen years in the making nineteen. Years. I don't know you pay you pay fast loose with like in the making conversation. This was always my dear. Yeah. Very true. But this movie we get James McEvoy returning as a bunch of people, aka the hord. We get Bruce Bilas returning his David Dunn Samuel Jackson as a laser price, aka Mr. glass on your Taylor joy from split. It's Casey Kook coke says has to os Kook, I guess cook. What am I talking about? Why so weird cook? Anyway, I am I the past couple of days off, it it is it is a mess, sir. Paulsen as Dr L E staple and then a bunch of random people. So the premise of glass, and this is one of those films that I'm going to preface with if you want to see this movie avoid every single trailer because the trailers literally give everything away the only thing that trailers, the only thing that trailers do not show are, of course, his signature your pseudo twist at the end, but what you see in the trailer. Like there is. I mean, yes, there is more to the movie, but as far as the beats UCLA lot of those trailers. I mean, he's not doing the thing that we're used to seeing another movie, which is like you're moving things around in the trailer. So you don't really get rhythm problem film goes this is pretty much. This is how the film's going to go. Yeah.
Tyus Battle's 32 Lead Syracuse to Shocking Upset Win over Zion Williamson, Duke
"A lot going on in the world of sports. We'll get into more dominance from James harden, a decision that gets pretty easy for the defending Super Bowl champions in my mind at this point a decision yesterday did seem to be a no brainer. That for some reason. I felt like we treated like a lot more than it was. That still has plenty of drama left to unfold for one major NFL prospect. But I. Holy hell Zion. Williamson I understand that Duke lost. I understand that. And if you missed it last night. Syracuse went on the road upset Duke ninety five ninety one in overtime. We got a little free basketball, which for those of us watching the bachelor last night. There is nothing like watching Colton going camping with the girls and the bachelor house and seeing simultaneously. Oh, I'm getting free basketball to this was all of my worlds coming together in the absolute best ways possible. Now for the Duke side of things I understand Duke lost. But when you look at the circumstances around why it becomes not only understandable. But I think it's never excusable. I want to say that right now Duke is too talented across the board the guys that they had left on the court. We're still good enough to where you have to get this done at home. And I say left on the court because part of the story for Duke last night going into the game. Cam reddish, one of the stars in their team missing with illness. Not in an available for them in the game. And then about five and a half minutes in trae Jones their star guard a guy who's a defensive juggernaut for them and a huge catalyst for them. Offensively leaves the game with what Mike chef ski described after as a shoulder sprain. It's a shoulder sprain. And we'll put out because I'm not gonna do medical stuff. But it's a sprain. There's no break, although he was in a lot of pain. He's a kid that the toughest kid right away. I don't know if my car broke bonus broken, you know, and it was that it was hurting that badly, but it's a sprain. And that was my worry. The I I saw that you thought it might have been a broken collarbone, which would have been devastating for this do blue devils team that listen the proof is in the pudding like the when he is on and off the court for them just within the body of this game be five minutes and change that he was on the court during this game Duke point differential, plus eight with him on the court field goal percentage. Fifty five point six percent with him off the court the point differential, minus twelve thirty six point six percent field goal percentage. They suffer offensively they suffer defensively where he's one of the best, man. Demand defenders in the ACC. And so that is going to affect you always said when it comes to injury. Usually we talk about it with the timing going into the season. At different points of the year, injuries are going to affect you differently. And so if you're a star player that gets injured at the beginning of the season ally. Last Joseph the Boston Celtics, for example, Gordon Hayward being injured at the beginning of the season. You spend the entire rest of the year. Figuring out how you adjust without Gordon Hayward. Kyrie Irving being injured right before the playoffs. All of a sudden, that's a major adjustment for a guy who has been a huge part of your offense. You might grow that down to a single game. And Cam rightish, who you know is not going to be available to you. That night is one way you adjust the game plan. Trey Jones going down in the body of that game is another completely when you have to now adjust without that guy on the court for you without the certainly the encore leadership that he brings you and all that production, and so the energy shifted as one might say. To Zion Williamson at RJ Barrett. Who took who scored fifty eight combined points last night the second most by Duke freshman duo under Mike shefty, but it wasn't quite enough. And I say all this again is a backdrop to discredit Syracuse for going in there and getting a win. And Lord knows we have become accustomed to Syracuse teams throughout the course of time underachieving during the regular season finding a way to make a run that alternately lands them in a Sweet Sixteen type season. That's the capability always exists with a Syracuse team. But man, you even heard Jim pay Heim after this who as usual was lighting up the sidelines in a way that the internet sopped up and enjoy tremendously even Jim boeheim after this kind of understood like man, there was a lot working against Duke. And we are still the team as Twitter would remind you last night big night for Old Dominion Twitter. Because ODU Twitter was reminding you the transit of property can be ineffective you so choose and college basketball, and this is a Syracuse team that. Lost to Old Dominion earlier this year, and you can kind of hear their head coach wearing that dukes. Great team. They don't have to other key guys. That's the breaks of the game. Sometimes. Those two guys the whole game. But you know, it's just one of those things. I watched one tape white may eight threes one game. I think seventy a lot. He couldn't tonight. That's just the way the game is sometimes I am. I asked Michael junior here on ESPN radio and the ESPN app. Duke talk about not being able to buy one from three that was the other thing there were a lot of specific jokes made about the sexual prowess of the bachelor over the course of last night. Those were only outnumbered by Duke missed three point shots in a game where they went nine for forty three. Again, a game in which one of their best offense players out. They went nine for forty three. The most three point field goal attempts in school history. Duke now becoming the fifth AP number one team to lose at home to an unranked team in the last ten seasons. So. An outlier in a lot of ways. Again, you look at all the things surrounding this performance. I'm inclined to look at these and not excuse a loss. But understand the circumstances around and say, all right. I'm not going to sound the alarms yet for do. Because this is still a Duke team that again man you saw what Zion is capable in. The midst of all this for a team that has struggled this season against own. We know no one really runs it better than Syracuse. In a lot of ways Zion still thirty five points in a loss. He goes thirty five and ten in this game. He becomes the first major conference player. With thirty five ten four and a game since Kevin Durant. Did it back in two thousand and seven and you saw for all the talk. We had about on a while back. I want to be known as more than just a dunker. You saw that on display last night because him going down and being that differentiating force in the paint. And that's where in the past by the passed earlier this season when you look at the other loss to zag and the things that undermine them in that game with teams clogged up, the paint, this outfit tend to have a bit of trouble. And you saw them do a better job of that last night. They just couldn't hit shots. Like, it's we always hear about the NBA to make making mislead couldn't hit shots your one of your best players and a guy who initiate your offense. And your defense goes out within the first five minutes of the game last night. And all of a sudden the plan changes. Now, what it means going forward becomes entirely different and Jay Bilas ESPN college basketball analyst pointed that out that long term for Duke. The worry. I think any team that loses a point guard like that is going to have some issues and.
Delayed Congo poll offers slim hope for change
"Elections on Sunday were set to herald the country's first transition of power by the ballot box with President Joseph Kabila stepping down after seventeen years in office. But an explosion of violence has caused the polls to be postponed. All the Ryan discusses what happened and why it matters with the F T Africa editor David pilling. David how much violence has been in the run-up to the polls and who's behind it wouldn't immediate run up to this election. There's been a gradual build up a violence. A number of opposition rallies have been broken up by security forces. There have been people shot dead and numbers a quite hard to come by. There was a rally there was supposed to have taken place earlier this week in Concetta by the opposition leading candidate Martin for you, which was broken up by tear gas, in fact, never took place, but one has to go even further back because this election is really been rumbling on for years. It was meant to have taken place in two thousand and sixteen and if you count the election violence, the protests against the election, not taking place and the authorities reaction to that. Then there have been dozens indeed hundreds of deaths that this election has already been responsible for as to who takes blame for this violence. A lot of it is security forces of the. Administration of the state, which is really not permitted opposition rallies, which has overreacted to demonstrations people being very frustrated at the slow pace of these elections. And now, of course, the further postponing of the poll from Sunday because that postponement is not only because of this violence is also an Ebola outbreak in the east of the country. There's voting machines which went up in flames allegedly anyway, and the electoral commission has used this as somewhat say an excuse or pretext to push the elections out a further week until December the thirtieth who are the main candidates in. What are the prospects? There are really three candidates. First of all, you have a man code Emmanuel shoddy who is running really as the proxy of Joseph Kabila, the man who's been in power for seventeen years his prospects. Most observers of Congo thing that he will win by hook. Oh by crook because the regime that's been. Power wants him to win and Kabila has shown no sign of really wanting to relinquish power. And that this is his chance to hold onto power by using what the Congolese are calling a dolphin. The opposition had briefly United on the one candidate Martin for ULA who's an oil executive who has the backing of two other politicians who would have run for the presidency. But for one reason or another worthy not allowed into the country or not allowed to run those struck down by a constitutional court. So in a sense, he's also a proxy for them. Unfortunately for the opposition the opposition split just a couple of days after agreeing to put up a United candidates, and there's another candidate called Phoenix Tshisekedi who represents in a sense, his father who for years and years and years was the official opposition who ran against not only Kabila, but Joseph Kabila's father, Lauren Kabila and bef-. For him even against Mabuza cisa cycle. He died before this election was able to take place. And so now Felix who has really the name recognition is also running can you tell us a little bit more let Mr. Sharara, then what kind of person is he well, he's not very well known in the country. He was the interior minister. And he was the interior minister at a period of some volatility when there were demonstrations in the streets of Kinshasa, December two thousand sixteen that was the first time that does Kabila at effectively refused to hold an election as he ought to have done because the constitution dictated that. And then the Kasai region also erupted into violence, and there was a very brutal security crackdown as a result of that should Dary is now the subject of European sanctions. Because inefficient he's been blamed as the head of the interior ministry for these crackdowns, which involve many, many deaths apart from that he is thought to be very loyal to Kabila. That's why Kabila chose him. The assumption is that he will do Kabila's bidding, what's at stake in this election. Why is it so important? Well, the DRC the Democratic Republic of Congo is a huge nation in the center of Africa in the Great Lakes region. It's a nearly European sized nation covered in rainforest. Very poor communications it can be impossible to get from one part of the country to another. They're very few roads. But what it does have is huge minora resources, for example, cobalt which is needed for a mobile phones, and which is needed for electric car batteries and really the green revolution. That were also expectantly awaiting in the west is really cannot happen without the resources pouring out of conga, but congress has been very poorly run to put it mildly. It's a state in a kind of near state of collapse. The somehow been held together by Joseph Kabila sort of patched together. So who runs this country? It is important for the outside world. And I would argue more importantly is very important for eighty million Congolese who despite sitting on all this huge wealth have been so poorly governed there among the poorest people in Africa with really terrible statistics. If you look at the health statistics life expectancy to disticts access to education access to hospitals and access to anything. They've really been let down by leadership has acted more as a kind of an extractive leadership to extract wealth from them than as a leadership. That's really there to serve them. So the hope for anyone is that at the very least Joseph Kabila who has been in power for seventeen years has agreed to step down. And although he is certainly trying to control the situation via his proxy, Emmanuel Chaudhary, maybe it'll get out of hand. Maybe he won't be able to control the system, and may be this in this, very messy difficult complicated. Way is one step towards a more Representative damore. Crecy given the way that you described Congo and electro system, there is this really likely to be a free election. Who's monitoring the poll it's not like to be free election tool. It's being monitored by civil society by the Catholic church by the African Union, but that doesn't have a great record in calling out elections and decisively saying that election has been stolen the expectation is that as long as the violence is not egregious as long as the theft of the poll is not obvious, then they'll be enough constituents, even including western diplomats and western representatives who will say look look stability of this country is more important than plunging it into a kind of post electoral crisis. So the expectation is that even if the process is as unfair as many people expect it to be that somehow enough people turn a blind is who it and the country. Will stumble on citizens effectively looked like the status quo continue with Mr Kabila remaining in power behind the same. That's what I think is not exactly the status quo because once you've stepped down you stepped down the president of the country. Does have a lot of constitutional powers should area said to be an absolute stalwart of Joseph Kabila. But who knows we've seen in neighboring Angola? When president does Santos gave up power after I think, it was thirty seven years in office and chose his successor gel. Lorenzo suddenly, and so has turned on the dos Angeles family as clamped down on a lot of the structures that had been set up over the previous nearly four decades, and we're seeing real change there. So I think once you relinquish the levers of power, you may try to hold onto them, and you may be successful in doing that. But we don't know what about the people on the street. Do you think they accept the result of medical Bilas choice whims? I think some will. But they'll be whole areas that weren't Kinshasa is an opposition stronghold. They've never liked Kabila who kind of holds up in the presidential palace playing. Jio games and on his farm driving around in his motorbike, very rarely appears in public even when the country descends into its near perennial crises. He's a kind of an invisible figure in the capital. And there are a whole other regions is the Kasai region, which is a huge region in the center of the country, which certainly belongs to the opposition then going to happily accept Kabila's nomination being elected. And then there's the whole east of the country a thousand miles away from Kinshasa very hard to reach the only way you can reach. It really is by plane or by boat along the Congo river. Maybe by motorbike all the way across the country. There you have minora resources, you have dozens and dozens of militia groups rebels. It's a very volatile part of the country and part of the world. And who knows what they're going to make this election. You've talked a lot about Congo's vast wealth. What do you think businesses will be heading for from this election? I think businesses really hope for some measure of style. Ability. I mean, there's a lot of rhetoric about paying tax in about being there for the good of the Congolese people about adding to the Congolese, national wealth. But if you look at the history of the Congo right from the time when it was the property of king Leopold than a Belgian colony and then in the post, colonial period, it really is a story of exploitation where these kind of minerals wealth rubber before that pours out of this vast country. But almost everybody in the country is left impoverished. Thank you very
"j bilas" Discussed on The Herd with Colin Cowherd
"And I remember I remember going God, that's it was it was like really sad to see a player that was so great. Be diminished in that way. And you know, he's now in the Naismith Basketball Hall of fame and I think rightfully so.

Believably good and played played incredibly like all star caliber. Well, but but his body broke down and that was that was sort of the difference, but but he was like two or three time national player of the year in college. Nobody could deal with them.
