Pricey comes out and we worked a lot together extensively together Prepare for a lot of fights over glass seven seven years now and yemen. Those guys are just nothing. But inspirations And i just listened to what they say. Take what they what their experience and learn from them. You're also here that at some point you were the cirque du soleil shows yes addition so as auditioned for call the show. Mgm people thousand people send videos to in those videos took selected sixteen people and ended alive addition in vegas and all that sixty nine took two people out of there and i got i got taken into the database as one of those people And i got opportunity. This performance for zumanigui. They wanna be dewsbury. Lex the burlesque show. I dunno it was cool. But you know i wanna do it. This time my life and i turned down a couple of shows actually But i definitely want to perform with them for sure in the future after my career of all theories off i'm still healthy and everything but basically they wanting me get my My fire of compe- competition out of my system. Before i go make the jump fulltime because that's a fulltime commitment. I won't be able to Do anymore because that's like two shows a night six days a week and it's like is nonstop plus you to make up and everything. A lot of training goes into it but definitely a goal snowed out i will. I will go back and do it again. In the future. James to be fair you did squat in front of other men. I don't think the burlesque show up at this point though right yeah i mean it was horrible but again just at my parents can come watch that. Show know i gotcha right interesting. Yeah you know. Our studio is right across from the michael jackson. Shirl which is a cirque show At the mandalay bay and we've kind of goes has been the more of them. But i've been like three or four. I really enjoy them. And i i like more is the physicality the the acrobatics stuff I mean the michael. Jackson one's a little bit different dudes performance in Beatles one is pretty cool as well. But i just really get a kick out of out of all the like the tumbler in all that stuff that i would never dare do. Full a helmet in protective gear. I just. I can't bring myself to run jump and trusted the rest of my big old body is gonna make the flip so that i can land correctly you. Don't i mean it's incredible Thing i learned about acrobatics is that you can't hesitate just like anything in life you hesitate. You're white in yourself pretty badly guy gopher under percent and you do that you play a lot bear chandy on your feet than like half assing or like that that fear hurdle ever have that like biological instinct at a tribe. Protect yourself and how to overcome that that fear. I'm gonna ask you a silly question here. Because that's i wonder things that are silly. If you're in the show in you're doing what you're doing right physical stuff and then the next part calls for you to run in kind of in mid air jump and do like a somersault right. If in mid air you get a cramp in your calf. Would you do like it. It does the show. Allow you to collect stumble out and performed or do you just good at out guy. Got it out you got. I mean if if that happens in the mid show. I mean you have to figure out because you're performing from all these people that are watching the farm. They paid hard on money to come see you you know and you as your obligation to give your best effort even if you get injured whatever happens you gotta through that. That's that's what i would do. I don't know about every athlete or performer. But for me. That's what i would do because is almost like an obligation to do them. You know but is there but if you break a leg or some them and then you gotta figure out how to get off the stage but yeah if you're just a little cramped ain't nothing to stop you. You gotta go through it. That's crazy man. I was making my bed earlier. Stub my toe for like two minutes now. Like older than half. And i just can't imagine you know in real life situations You know when you're performing how people play it off. I'm sure there's a lot of stories singers entertainers of all kinds. Broadway's were just something you know is off physical but they got a power through and we may never see it you know. They're just smiling doing what they need to do. And carrying on the show must go on right. Of course of course always must go on but you know up in the toll thing you know you've ever slept. Tell almost like training right there of of you know mental training right there. You know you gotta take that pain and just absorb it love it. You know because that's what it is. Man that people are watching. You'd be amazed how you can play it off because you don't wanna look dumb. You know when you bump your knee people around or something unusual you know he's gonna like tough it out. You have your tough it out but when you're alone everyone turns in a big baby anyway. Listen man.

I'll watch grown men like literally have breakdowns. Cracking down on like it was a quite a site to behold but now i just had to stay i mean the reason why was there. I mean i knew i signed up for the reason i was there to train. Kung-fu shaolin kung fu. That can't learned that. I couldn't learn that the timing anywhere else so Very appreciative that the whole the whole journey there that living out there and then my fourth year moved to beijing is. I went to a professional sports. School called kershaw high. And that's where jet li went to school. He graduated at their house. Like the i gotta train with professional A mixture of professional athletes wushu athlete like professional ping pong players. Rational batman boxers athletes gymnastics. All the big arrange of athletes. And i got a picky brain in just see how people trained out of you know at a high level that last academy almost sounds like the united states olympic training center. Something along the lines. Yeah well it's like every city in every in china has like a professional sports team inside. I was just the beijing sports team that will have their team was like the best best in the in the country and it had like real world worldwide. So i got to work with those those athletes who is a really big eye opening experience. 'cause along the shoreline training was very important to get that in my belt sustainable for long time tears at time. 'cause that training i got injured installed Injuries and doing acrobatics. on concrete. Things will happen where you break. Inc or sprained ankle andrew yourself. You've gotta work around those injuries and it wasn't like the best Scientifically as the best training but mentally. It was like the best push have had because it made me a lot stronger and tougher. Yeah just go. Back to that sean. Academy every month would have a test at the end of the month so you either do a form that you've been working on or you fight somebody or you guidance from break from whatever you're working on and i saw this guy is trained iron head you're trying to break a brick on his head. Right is my brother from canada but the first time you did it did it was rough. He hit it like concussion. Wobbly and then the whole month he came back and trained his ass off for it and he comes back in eagles his head. And then like a streak of blood coming down and he just screams out boom smashes through it. And i was like man. That's the perseverance. Right there because i mean whatever you say about that kind of training it was pretty hard man and guys were really given. They're all out there so it was it was a men Yeah i can't speak enough about it and the punishment to like if you were to break a curfew or brake lights or electricity is cut out at ten. Am every night. And if you're like caught outside the school or anything and you're best around bring alcohol into the school. They're going to line you up in the morning entire kademi an embrace a stick over your backside like they're gonna put you in push plank position and it gets beat you at the and usually going to your coach that has to do it and it's like know it's like emotional. Trauma is like physical drama but only the strong survive to weed people out. I think so. I felt like it was almost like a jail yard because everyone had joint orange jumpsuits and there's a basketball court on cobblestones out there and any new student. That would be coming into the school. All the students are like. Who's new guy coming in here. Who's only talk to him. Like you know. See if you're gonna make it or not survive out here tonight. You know because it's like tough survived man and this is how it was. I'm blown away right now. I have like ten follow questions. This is so interesting. But would you describe. Sounds like it was very spiritual mental physical physically challenging all for the betterment of yourself you matured a lot but at times like if somebody were to walk in the room halfway through there'd be like oh. Did he do time in prison. You in the military like through a lot to a young guy but it really seems to have a. I mean you seem to come out of there along the lines of like what the navy seal or somebody or an elite army ranger With most about the bills Physical and mental. It's it's amazing. Yeah man is like hell week but for three years. But i love that you know. I know that's why signed up for is where i wanted. I can never complain about ever because it definitely shaped me made me going into. It may be grateful to just be from america. Like i just i. Did you know at the time of the young kid. I didn't realize what is like outside of here. You know. I felt like i was kind of a spoiled spoiled brat at that point basically because i just had no idea what the luxuries that we had here so immense compared to how some people live but that being said you know these people at living next door like you in northeast. China's known as the don't bake your hand on the rough northerners you know and i was living out in the field that the the farming fields. And you know they have nothing but they're like the happiest people i've ever met in my life with hearts of gold and that was very special for me to see too because you can have nothing Amenity wise are a you know. But it doesn't mean you're bad personal good person in the happiest people in the nicest people have have been around james. So what was the the. Do you remember the things that went into the decision to leave yemen. I mean at the time home life was in the best and but now you know everyone at home is good. I mean that was just something that i just went into. Do man as martial artist as a young kid. I always wanted to do that. I was like as kind of almost like a dream. A goal was to go train shaolin monks and via shaolin monk and i got the opportunity in the price of it. Wasn't that immensely. We only like four ankle the whole year and compared to college. That's where i got my education. Basically i went over there. I didn't even speak commander. I speak cantonese chinese Which is if. I compare it like some people understand. Portuguese spanish is similar but very different. And i just went over there and i couldn't talk to nobody and i had to just figure it out in teach myself mandarin in this as another aspect of traveling on your own learning how to communicate with people that don't speak the same language as you and then over time. I started teaching myself mandarin Start figuring it out. So i was a very very important time in my life. Fisher so here. You are in one championship in georgia leader to your amateur record is very impressive can do you remember the moment where you felt like okay. I'm gonna let go of the amateur career. It's time to become a pro. Was there something that stood out that made you make that decision. Last pursuing the fighting general. I my move to go to kick kickboxing pain creation. I wanted to just training myself at the time. Train guys in was like against biologist complex towing. I never doni like groundwork. Adela striking take downs in in in that link. Sanja essential sunda But but i thought mahalia what happens but hit the ground. This is incomplete training. You know i. I have weapons. Experience have fighting on the feed and entails on this.

"Own kind of where we're i've been able to like meet. My limits are. Because i've been able to ask myself released simple questions like is this making me happy. Is this making me feel bad right now. Yes it sounds like leaving room for creative work and then also like staying aware of the things that can either like throw you off track or don't make you feel good with what you're doing and paying attention to those things. I guess my next thought that i'd like to get to is A know both of you are really actively involved with the organization. Mind on fire. Which i'm sure is a big part of both of your creative work and love to hear about the organization. Sort of how it's evolved over the past. I don't know what is it like four or five years old. now we're were designed years. Yes to seattle. My not fire is all about and how it's evolved over the past few years ray. So it has it lake in its first year of existence Like two thousand seventeen games for fear of existence that went through some major evolution like eventually just formed is like this is gonna be a fun lay a bunch of like classical style musicians together in playing music pettus not like normally faith or right And then that quickly became a like. Well what if we open that up to like all sorts of different types of musicians and Why does it even have to just be musicians. That we'd like are making work with. And i'm i'm saying this is like these. These came from a lot of like very long. Discussions and conversations and thinking by gallison has a ton of fantastic ideas at the genesis of this organization And still now as ideas like it was also knew. I brought up the idea of like working with not On concerts and in in putting the other shows and what. I originally thoughts like well. I just want classical music to be part of the living continuum of going to shows and like happened at work effectively for like classical music as well like how can how can adjust. Because it's like there is audience. Overlap like if you go to like all whatever alternative music you wanna hear other types of usually open to it right. It's like you just open to that new experience but like once we What's late yet. We figured out the idea of just including a lot of different types of artists. Let's started to naturally lead in to what is even more rewarding about the organization and that's has more to do with like what is the organization doing that is effective for like baltimore city. Like why is why is it important. That like mine. Fired exists and what service can do for The community that we live in. And that's that's there's like the head of the value system that we all have A like leads into like what we can like what we can like offer other artists but also the the the the the aspect of us being a nonprofit organization has again. there's a legal Like engine that is also like pushing us to consider like how to be more of a sort of community organization like in basic terms. I think just that. I think maybe getting a little too far in the weeds like mine on fire is a performing arts organization. That is also A kind of public showcase of clay guard alternative experimental fringe baltimore artists. A baltimore performing artists from poets to dancers to And when mina fireworks bests all of those were working together to create. i. I do think that the thing I guess from its genesis. Two now the thing that has changed the most about my non fire is just kind of like I think we were kind of loosely hanging onto this idea that we were really classical music organization and we always kind of like what we we make notating music And whether that is music that is written by like a c catholic a capital c. composer who has studied for many many years to write music down on paper or of that as a person who You know makes just like has an auditory tradition. We'll work to we. Think that that like we found that works actually more valuable to us and actually allows more access to people and allows us to use the skills that You know a lot of folks have on these kind of orchestral instruments to kind of like expand the pallet of Other art forms. It just kind of like create. i don't know like Interesting music of now. That is kind of focused on more people being involved. I think that i might. I might turn to like advice for current students. Like if you're and then that's usually the question we used to close out the interview unless there's any specific topics you guys want to go over. If this if this is advice time for current students. I have a lot of things But the top of that is win. It's safe to do so go to shows go to shows all the time Tried to experience things that you have no idea what they are And if you like something led the person who made the thing you like no and then from there like you'll slowly develop relationships and you'll also have developed like a general report with yourself of just like kind of developing your own mission statement of artistic love and slate in the end this is about love and light This this is my main point. Value yourself it's like valuing yourself value your time in valuing your like rain you know to learn and like deepen your connection to yourself by discovering what you love what you don't love and discovering the communities who Like are struggling or doing so very easily to create things that you like vibe with thank you both so much great talking to you today name christina.

"I do think that it's like a fall into kind. Do a pattern not as helpful patterns of behaviors in terms of feeling our own success or not or feeling own sense of healing or worthiness or whatever. And i do think that like it is just kind of like redefining those patterns and reassigning them and for me at like in terms of the successive. The work that i'm doing The singing that. I'm doing or the organization that i've running. I think that it is like a may meeting my pattern where i am right now and kind of adapting to it and that that to me is success is just kind of being like. I think i did I can understand what got me here. And i can stand by that And if i made a mistake which i inevitably will. Because i like you know human being that i like was able to like the accountable for that mistaken acknowledged that changed my behavior so i think that it is just kind of like success to me is constant growth And not in like the expansion capital kind of way in like the deepening sowing. The seeds kind of way. An eye bright. I bring up that term. Because i think it can be really problematic and there can be very specific images of what success looks like which are not necessarily accurate to you. Ah general you or any person in fact when there's like prescribed you'll be successful when you get this job or if we set goals for ourselves that ended up changing over time. So that's why bring that up. I think your answers are kind of indicative of that and really helpful to think through the process. So you both mentioned the importance of staying in tune with What what is possible for yourself in a creative capacity in a given day and kind of being aware of your own goals and what's really fulfilling for you in the projects that you're working on and i'm curious like what what you do on a daily basis on a weekly basis on a monthly basis to stay aware to stay in tune into really pay attention to so that you're not missing kind of what's giving you that sort of happiness and film at that you're looking for. Yeah for me. It is really Keeping to a schedule and writing everything down and like making sure. I think the way myself to a schedule is i set alarms for myself to remind myself to do things or to said a clock alarm to remind myself to remind myself to do it in a calendar but in in late in the more general term. i really trade to he lake everyday has a certain like purpose to it Words like some days. I'm gonna were this part time job or like this damage to do a lot of mine firework this day. I'm gonna like folks on composing. I've also learned when i am effectively. Able to do a certain type of work like there was a period of time with her whenever a a light found myself with Some free time. Like after like nine ten pm i would start trying to write music and at the end of lake an hour or two is often said because i think is i was too tired to write Until i realized like. Oh no. I can't i can't do. This is to let things go. Wait until the next day to start again so i could start working in the morning. Were like generally better. I'm very good at doing all of life. My big city bring work in the morning and do like more. Like transcription work. I do in the afternoon or just general editing. Were or like sitting out some more mechanical emails. Doing like the mechanics part part-time jobbers Was saved till afternoon. But it's like always forcing myself to hold hold time for myself and like as another example late. I don't answer emails on the weekends. Or it's a very rarely sends or allow myself to read emails on the weekend. For instance It's very helpful to even say like this is. This is the secret like this. Is my lake church. That i'm making just for myself And that's what. I miss doing that. That makes the whole next week more difficult. But when i do give myself time to rest or give myself time to oppose or things away or if myself space than it makes everything that do or meaningful or just easier even so. That's that's the. That's the practical thing i do is like figure out your schedule. personal schedule and keep to it and hold it sacred and val yourself. I do think that for me. It's kind of similar. retail few pointed distinctions You know boundaries or super important with all things work. You know when i started this job. It's like a great job. So i wanted to do it all the time because i didn't want people to fire me because i need the job So i did it all the time and my work suffered so i end like okay. Like no one's impressed with me doing more work here. You know this actually taking care of myself. I'm hired because. I'm an artist like these times that i'm doing these things and really scheduling like i need a lot of openness to make work so like really just being like i have five hours where no one can talk to me and like i use a lot of different kinds of Little things to get my day going. I basically like once a month just kind of do this big dump of all of the stuff that's in my brain and then i kind of a sign the things to a certain day similar james. I guess that are like you know. These are more of my like working things. And i never have more than three things to do into. Hey honestly like i n if anything else can happen beyond that. That's great but really. I'm like i might my limit. Is this in just like really being super gentle with myself and being like i'm being productive person because like i'm actually paying.

"Thing for me This is just like one percent getting rate on a level with you but it's like being singing person sucks ass. Sorry i'm sorry can't say that spots And it's like It's still a lot of ways to go in terms of like guy just like being a person whose body is there are like in terms of fat acceptance and like gendered stereotypes and things like that. And like i did the whole like going to a new york and auditioning for a few years on the night like was so disheartened by the whole process that it was like this is actually not the trajectory read. Like i'm not willing to make sacrifices like and some people are i e bike admire them And think that they're awesome but it's like for me. I'm like this doesn't feel right So really just as like a long-term of kind of like trial and error and that's still true of like every relationship is constantly being built in reestablished redefined. so i do think that it's a lot of dislike. What actually like actually having to ask myself the question. Like what am i capable of today and does this still feel correct. Had simply reevaluating and Kind of questioning and making sure. You're checking with yourself on that process yet. Yeah absolutely with with allison and everything else. Get yourself enough. Credit with her thoughtfulness which is vast Like constructing a life like having to balance like a sense of self with your own like safety in society is it just feels you know. It's like a really i'm gonna. i'm in a very privileged position where i was able to like. Get out of peabody with no debt. Because of like my family situation for those listening rooms see my face. I'm a white man. comes from a successful family data taxes so i get to pursue passion projects that won't painting money while like also supplementing Like my income with like odd jobs and in have that uk inexperienced blake a level of stability that. is not open to every single person that might want to do something different within the field of Like music making. That's like that's a. That's a real tough gig to like your. It's as much as there is by kind of an emphasis emphasis like artistic expression and self expression within the fields of like performing arts. It's it's really if you want success than you need. Boxers self into a certain way of existing within the field and then also combine that with some amount of preternatural look And make sure that you have the right temperament to like pursue this as well. 'cause like not everyone at speaking speaking as a person who like overcomes the very very annoying late. The feelings of china's social situations like that doesn't really doesn't to out if you're trying to advance a freelance career like you need to be able to Like i say this with the utmost respect shamelessly yourself out there and as many possible is is again. I want to touch on something that you mentioned james about climbing the ladder that i thought was really interesting. And you sort of made We can't see this in the podcast. But you sort of made a visual of like a funnel that gets really narrow and i thought that was appropriate because in many cases there are very few very few available fulltime jobs per year say in a symphony orchestra or in an opera company they exist. They're out there. People win those jobs but not at the same rate that they graduate from music schools. So what i'm interested in talking about is like you mentioned that s the definition of success and i think considering that the only definition of success is sort of problematic in itself. And i'm curious for yourselves. What do you define success in this moment. This is weird. I actually was having a conversation with someone like there's no in point. There's no there's no in point of success and i actually don't know if they're This is not a dig on like the question at all. But i don't think there is actually i don't think that's i don't think there is an image that is success. I think there is successful process. I think there are like ways of kind of success. Comes from the realization of your values. Right is like win win. You are living in a way that you Feel rewarded by in someway. That is like that is kind of narcotic yele shen in some way of success Living like a multi faceted life is like if my success as a poser. Which that's what music for. It went to these full for like composition And i'm i'm still happy that it didn't really like my like composition play life even though like i wanna be and you know we want more. It's like that's the that's the part of me. That is the hungriest but My success as a composer is like did everyone. Did i write something that i feel. Proud of and then was able to collaborate with artistic partners to like myself to like realize the the the the codex whatever it is that i wrote like when it comes to mind on fire is like are we light serving unity an like in a way that feels effective in goods and additionally are we Really trying not aereo putting on like a show experience. That is Somehow rewarding like some somehow like interesting or like valuable. In whatever way that that's like gauged like it's again it's like super personal in that way fulfillment in your creative work that makes you feel successful at least from what i'm interpreting. What you're saying. Yeah i guess for me the way i think about it. The all of these words that have been points associated with them. I guess success and healing and things like this like whenever healed were never success full.

Liz downing We've been working on that a bunch and then you know got my day job which is very nice and i love my co workers. But it's still my day job Which i do a lot of the dais. What does your day job. My day job is working for a software company. Twenty hours a week It's a company called figure fifty three local baltimore software company. It's a super small company that makes piece of software called cue lab which runs lights and sound and music in live theater events. You know from a smallest. Like the diy theater that i am making. And you know the olympics and broadway Which is cool. Yeah that has been good just kind of catching up on reading. I have been doing all sorts of things. I guess league alsina graduated from or left. Me buddy. I guess a while ago. I think i left. Peabody no Six snaps seven years ago alternate graduated. Maybe a year or two before i did Did twelve so like since that time it's been had a series of different sort of different sort of jobs and that's where i am right now like all kinds of orbiting Like music making some way. Whether you like teaching or transcribing or like some like commissioning or performance or digitisation it's all kind of orbiting debris of music jobs The main thing that i've done that no money is used administration were through Like i starting a short-lived concert series than jumping on board occasional symphony which is a local independent distributor in baltimore And then with allison doing work for mine on fire and building their organization Into what it is today Yeah a lot of is just that of figuring out what it's like figuring out what needs to be done or what can be done and then There's not any of that has happened last year but like going to bars with the right people informed connections than that blooms into something at some point in the future. Yeah we days away weeks months away but like something. Something is always happening. So both of you are really kind of you do a variety of projects. It's sounds like a lot of is very freelance. Which is which is great. I guess my question around that is as someone who isn't working for just one organization. How do you prioritize the things that are your passion projects versus the things that are making you money versus the things. That are a mix of both choosing collaborators. How do you think about which projects you're taking on. And when i always. I feel like i am Less thoughtful within james so whenever we get interviewed. I'm like well. Here's my immediate response to this. Which kind of is indicative of. I guess that my thoughts around figuring exactly what you asked about a about is like a lot of it really is like inertia and like you have to understand that i've liked gone full on. You know nettie whoo person so like really like kind of tuning into my body. At knowing like when i have a creative wave happening i think that some people are like more actively creation is like is a daily job. I see james doing constant i work. I live with both james and jason And you know. I think they're like very more like a eight of coins kind of people who are like day gotta like get. Get your little creative work in and for me. It's very much like i kind of am more of light day whereas this wind saving me kind of person I'm lucky to have really prioritize jobs that are not like give me health. Insurance is essentially like I'm going to talk about my very flippantly but like The preamble is. I love the people that i work with them. They treat me very well and also. I'm like the primary reason i work. There is because we live in a place where workers are valued and people's healthcare is somehow a commodity that we have to gain access to so might healthcare job Gives me a lot of flexibility and freedom. And i've kind of really shaped it so that i can and have enough space for the rest of it So it's like security that allows you to then take on other artistic projects and not worry as much about the financial gains from them. Yeah.

"Man like yesterday was it seems like yesterday I was watching Jack play high school ball, man. Life goes by fast, Doesn't it up? It really does. It really does. So let's talk a little basketball. Uh, Rex, you And I, uh David I The three of us talked earlier in the season and we were kind of speculating on what it would take for this team to be a good team and for this team, too. Uh, to win and to to forge its way in a positive direction. We've seen flashes of that, rex. But you and I both know on this level. Flash. It's is it on, Lee teases you and make you want more. You've seen a couple of games. I know you've been busy doing other things. But do you see anything that Lead you to believe that this team will at Any minute click. And put together a really nice end to this season. Well, you know, I think that we weigh, do see flashes. And when to be honest, when I was watching the other night, um, you know when we had things going, you know pretty well there in the first half and even the beginning of the second half. Um, you start to see that you know the team started to get first. Tian makes a ton of difference. I mean, he's just a good bad ballplayer. He comes in right away, and he makes a ton of different guys like Brandon. You know, she's getting better. I know. Look, but we're gonna be three months from now or six months. Just where does now but he is getting better. And my guys like that struggle you used it to back. I know. I mean, God, I just played right through his chest. Right now. He's just so immature physically, And so he's battling against the three and four year players and they're beating up every night. He's having to learn how to take jobs, not fall down all the time trying to get fouls, but you've got to stay on your feet to get back defensively. So you do start I started the city. Um I'm in. It made a comment to my son the other day watching us. Just said, you know, right now we're about as good as we normally are. You know, in the end of December, and we're starting, you know, curved part of the cove. It And I know Oprah fans. It's frustrating. I want our guys to win every single night. I gotta tell, you know, in the middle of the middle of a pandemic, I can't imagine. You know they're away from home to begin with. They can't go out for the first time Taste. They can't take girls. They can't do all the stuff that you do when you're going to school at Kentucky. And we're not winning like we should, though, And I know these kids all I know those coaches for sure, but you know, it has to be tough right now on them, so I know that they could use our support. Now as much as ever. Rex. How nice would it be for this particular team? It's a Wednesday night you had played Tuesday night. It's now Wednesday. Wanna lose? It's now Wednesday. You go through the day doing what you normally do. And one of the guys said Hey, man, let's go bowling. Yeah, uh, and all the guys pal in a vehicle or two and they head I mean, how nice would that be? And your bill, You have to build that trust on the floor but have to build it all and the relationship off the floor as well. So just little things like that are magnified immensely now. Sure, Jack and you know, essentially, they're in a bubble there in a little team bubble right? And so they're not getting any real outside interaction with people. So any any team bonding stuff they're going to do. It can probably still feel a little bit contrived and forced. You know, as much as I like my best friends and my kids and all that. We get tired of one another. You gotta get away from people from time to time. So you know my heart. Really? You know, I've always Aside aside with players a lot, and this is really no different. I feel for these guys right now. I'd love this. Yeah, You said it, Jack. You know, just being able. You put your hard work work weekend. You've got the win, and then you're just gonna go out. Do something After the game. Maybe you got a date. Maybe you're going to go do something with the guys. Whatever. But Yeah, This is the difference is the different year and I got faith in our program. And then, uh, Mitch and And coach Cal and all those guys, This is a blip on the radar. And hey, who knows? We may go on a run. You never know. You never know. Yeah, the thing I'm hoping this that way have Most of these guys back next year to kind of build on with the new guys coming in, and if nothing else, it might be worth going through this to have a little bit of a veteran team. No, You're exactly right. You know, I usually try not to speculate. Uh much about you got you Can't Yeah, Yeah, I can now so yes, you can. Like with Brandon, For instance, he you know, he That's the guy and I'll throw a name at you that I would think very much similar. I didn't think a few years ago that James Young was a bit more ready to play in the NBA than a man on the moon when he left. Had a decent freshman year. But my goodness, he was just not ready. Couldn't dribble. He couldn't really pass that. Well, he you know he was really inconsistent. And that kind of Brandon is a little bit James. It was a little bit bigger and physically a little bit more ready to play, but breath. Just not, you know, he physically He's up against that. He's one of those guys. You know, they're feeding over there all the time. Probably just trying to get him to, you know, gain a pound or two. Another summer of lifting and all that stuff. Are you kidding me? If we could get that guy back in the soft, more, you'll be dynamite. Well, I agree with you, Rex. Hey, Hey, man. Thanks so much for coming. It's It's always good spending time with you. You keep promising me your Let me take you to dinner and you keep keep dodging me, man, but I'm gonna keep coming at you. Ah, thanks So much for giving us a little bit of your time today and I look forward to seeing you as quickly as possible. Absolutely. I love you both met you guys build hat. Let's get a win tonight.

"You know, Kevin wouldn't going to throw nobody any Kudos as a young player Oh org their way. And so I'm not saying that Marcus is going to treat rookies the same way that Kevin did but he is not going to be throwing out praise to a young life cuz he knows his wrong. That's not yeah, that's right. Marcus is off is only to give that praise when it's due and and and even to say, hey looks all right, no though, and and I'll point to another thing when they did the pre-game interview with Brad. I can't remember which game it was they were talking about. You know, Peyton's, you know, first decent performance was a game to maybe but anyway, he had stepped out of bounds, right and Brad's like I you know jokes, you know, you doing pretty good but you know, you gotta stay involved or something like that and it's like the fact that he's joking about that too says a lot about their trust in not as not dead. Trust their understanding of his confidence because a coach says something like that to a young rookie who's still feeling not confident not established an awkward, you know, Brad smart enough to know that that could really, you know, put a rick rookie in a funk right even though he's kidding even though he's right, you know that that could put a young player in a funk and that's how much they understand who Payton Pritchard home and I realized, you know, Brad smiled and joked and everything else but Kino's this game is rhythm game and that could have gotten in Peyton's head and they didn't and and I think that's a statement wage. I I think so, I think that this so this is kind of like the next thing in this for me and it's something that I was really more on my mind when things were going well, but but I think it's still an important conversation a question, which is okay. So the so let's have had a lot of draft picks from middle of the first round and I'm not sure. Sure over the last four or five years, right and apart from you know that you know, the the the 16 or well, I'm just like, okay. So yeah Boselli and RJ Hunter James Young those drafts, right?.

"Have James young so you've got the impact quarterback you've got the impact defensive and the guys going to be able to make some big plays forced fumbles sacks that kind of part of the equation so I can believe in that I believe that more than what Ellis you would bring to the table because it's not just those two guys it's the whole team we have a top ten scoring offense a top ten scoring defense it's a complete package and they've done it all season long right let's run through the resume for Ohio state they've beaten number twenty five Michigan state they've beaten thirteenth ranked Wisconsin the beating thirteenth ranked Michigan they beat eighth ranked Penn state eight again they beat Wisconsin who moved up to number eight in the big ten championship so they've got all of the winds they've got the success throughout the season the problem with Clinton who have the plate includes an incredibly great team and if they win if they beat Ohio state I would give them the best shot to go and win this thing I just don't think they beat Ohio state they haven't had the year in experience the Ohio state had to go through all of these big games all throughout the year they performed above and beyond and so I'm just so impressed I'm not worried about Ryan date first years offences you know moving up from offense of coordinator to head coach he's going to be just fine he's been just fine all year I'm buying Ohio state I'm buying Ohio state all the way to me they are absolutely the best bet in this thing again I'd love to hear from you eight five five two one two four two two seven nine Vince Quinn you can always hop in on Twitter what do you know that it's Vince Quinn that's all one word it's Vince Quinn but you've got the quarterback you've got the defensive end you've got the team quality you've got the competition you've got the stats then here's the bigger thing to me because right now the argument against Ohio state for the most part I think is going to be Ellis you a get it the number one and it's just it's an easy story to tell to the store to get behind what about she Vince why we want to respect then defenses been great have you seen them last couple weeks did you see what they did in the SEC championship game what they did to Georgia they destroyed George you know what they absolutely do it they'll Georgia ten points that was never a game I can gradually shins to the they've gotten hot the last couple weeks that defense has gotten significantly better I need consistency and that's what I'm looking for what I'm trying to evaluate who the best team is in college football who's going to actually win this thing if I was put money down who's the safest bet the safest bet to me is Ohio state because they've done it again all year long against bad teams against good teams first week last week and that's what you need to see that's what I need to see because it's the star talent sure being hot the moment sure a bit and even to Ellis use credit is because they've been the past couple weeks it's been a little while since they've played now that's part of the problem of the college football playoff you play your conference championship and then a you go on vacation for a couple of weeks yeah hang out you cool down what were the problems that you talk about when it comes to the NFL this can be a little bit of this conversation I don't know how warranted it is but the it's worth having because with the Baltimore Ravens week seventeen of the regular season there benching everybody everybody that matters is taking a seat and you get into this debate every single year of whether or not you should bench those guys in week seventeen do you play them do you keep the momentum you have a bye week the following week so now you're talking about okay from week sixteen you're waiting a week to seventeen you're waiting a week to the first week of the playoffs your way to get another week essentially to play that next game that's three weeks of not playing football can that slow you down for the ravens I'm not so worried because the Baltimore Ravens are in a league team and have been basically all season long they've done it all year I don't have a reason to doubt them and you also think of John Harbaugh and what he's been able to be as a coach the consistency of their program if you will their consistency of that team throughout the year I can buy into all of that and so I'm not worried about the raven sitting guys for Ellis you in that defense I've only seen for a couple weeks and even a good program they have been the only program this is the year where everything's come together so for them to be at this stage right now I respect Ellis you I think they're incredibly well run and they deserve the number one seed for where they've been in this moment but who really is the best team with the best chance to win the college football playoff I'm looking at Ohio state that's how I got so eight five five two one two four two two seven that's how you doing the show again eight five five two one two four two two seven I get like Oklahoma I just don't see chance I I I really I mean yeah I wanna find an opportunity I try to come up in my head even as just the devil's advocate of some argument where Hey well Oklahoma you know Jaylen hurts has been greatly could Riley everything's done I just don't think it's possible I mean really did find the Avenue where you look at that game in itself thirty down thirteen and a half points as for Vegas has them at minus thirteen and a half and I believe it if you expect to shoot out who's going to win a shoot out it's gonna be L. as you so to see okay can I overcome Ellis Eudocia issued out maybe maybe possibly things go wrong Joe burrows there with some pics he has a weird off game I don't know why okay can I do it twice can Oklahoma two weeks in a row against the best teams in college football they get over that hump twice no I I just can't believe I can't buy it no maybe you do I and I'd love to hear from me eight five five two one two four two two seven but if I'm lining up Oklahoma against LSU which will do later today if I'm lining Oklahoma up against Ohio state or Clemson I just don't see them winning this thing I'm looking at Ohio state and they can beat anybody they have the experience they have the star power they have the statistics and they've done it with a consistent track record against quality competition it's every mark that you're looking for a winner for all the reasons that you know Clemson is put it three it's it's they haven't played anybody those are the things that I lean into with Ohio state that's the advantage that they have they've played people Ellis you doesn't have the consistency so when you put it all together yet again I'm sticking with Ohio state but if you want to get in a five five two one two four two two seven that's how you doing the show now on the other side I'm Vince Quinn with you by the way on CBS sports radio on the other side let's talk a little bit about the art of survival shall we that is coming up next gosh waking up over and over to P. is not okay.
