Michael Smith on the Paul Finebaum Show
"You're listening to the Paul Finebaum Show podcast and we're delighted to welcome all of you back. Oh one of the Tru truly great reporters On the on the college sports business seen in Michael Smith joining us now. In one of the most recent issues of the Sports Business Journal talking about The first six years of the College Football Ballpoint Michael Great to have you on we. We're always looking for ways to talk. I'd rather do it other than on the only on the air. But we're delighted to have you here and I wanna I just first of all Just have you do reflect on some of the reporting that you did in this piece as well as your own observations of the first uh for six years of the College Football playoff. Hey Paul thanks for having me So good catch up with you and You know the point of the story was to look at the College Football Playoff Championship game. We're six years into it now. The the deal it is being goes twelve years so we felt like at at this midpoint on the TV contract. It was a good time to kind of take stock of what has worked what has not worked and so we went out and hold a lot of marketing then media experts and got their opinions on on that question and so as you can imagine. Most of the feedback was positive It's better than the system we had before But it still leaves a lot of questions in terms of how do you grow the TV audience. Had He made it. It could schedule more consistent so we don't have two weeks between the semi final and final. How do we keep games off of New Year's Eve questions like that that they continue to come up and no real solution for right now you also took look with ESPN executives About the time of the game. And that's a that's that's a complaint you get all the time this year. The game ended. I think twelve fourteen no the game a couple of years ago when even later an and Michael you and I live on the East eastern time zone we forget there are people in California who are three hours behind us but That's not going to change. There's a no it's not gonNA change you know. Five of the six championship games have gone past midnight. And like you said some going well past midnight and that's where it really comes down to. How competitive the game is and with LSU pulling away at that point the viewer show probably after midnight was not as great raise. It would have been saved for the Alabama Georgia overtime game. No it's a really good point Let me ask you since you are You know all these people pool and I know you just go through spending some time and can't wait to hear more about it with Jim Delany in Nashville. Who Retired how? How does college football allow the Big Ten and the PAC twelve and more importantly the Rosebowl? Aw dictate everything else that goes around it. The that's kind of age old question June and You know there. There's such an allegiance. There's such loyalty to to the ball. Games like especially the Rosebowl like you pointed out often and that really is one of the major factors. You know the rosebowl being locked in at that time. New Year's Day on factors I y you cannot consistently put the semifinals on New Year's Day. And then come back with the championship game a week later And there there's just It's almost hard to explain. But there there's such a sense of The the Rose Bowl has been so. Oh good to college football that you do have loyalists like Jim Laney and others the you know who the SEC. In the sugar bowl for example that They they don't want to relinquish that. And so the only way to make sure the Rose Bowl and sugar bowl maintain that status as they own new year's Day. I wonder again. I have great admiration for Delaney and the fact that I would give him the credit here. I think you can correct a For being able to do this and then what did the SEC do. As you've reported Mike's life came in and said okay. If they're going to do that we wanna own the sugarbowl Slob of the problem with the sugar. The ball slot. Mike is at the game. Doesn't start till nine o'clock right. You know that's you know that's an aspect active Of all the experts that we talked to media marketing is worth. We talked to the one criticism or the one Miss when you talk about a hitter misses that kept coming up was the inconsistency the scheduling and maybe not being able to capitalize as much on in the semifinal games as they would like you know we saw the TV audience really spiked with that first championship game between Satan Oregon Oregon and since then it's Kinda settled in lower number right around twenty five million viewers. That's a fantastic crowd in this definitely It definitely gives. ESPN the ability to own that that evening. But when you think about the Super Bowl being eighty five to ninety million million viewers compared to twenty five million for the College Football Championship. You wonder how. How is the CFPB championship game? Going to grow its viewership and And the inconsistency of this is one of the factors that a lot of people pointed to that that could limited going forward and and I wonder listen. I don't I don't want to minimize twenty five million people That's a big number and when you look at the most watched events of the year after the super bowl off the collar after the Super Bowl and the in the NFL playoffs College football biggest night is huge. But I'm just watching it this week and I realized the Kobe tragedy has has cast a pall but From here on as you know Michael you're in the sports business world the Super Bowl. Aw is as big of an event as there is in the world and college. Football just seem like it's sandwiched in between the NFL. Playoff off games on Saturday and Sunday right. So this schedule if you think about it There were three. NFL Sundays in between the semi finals. The final amazing and so that goes back to the consistency question the scheduling and being able to maximize the opportunity to college. Football has to to own certain days as and when you think about cargo owning January first and neither the finals nor the semifinals are on January. First it seems a little counterintuitive and January. I was a huge day. I mean the the audience for the Michigan Alabama Citrus Bowl was was Gargantuan and so it's not like ESPN is going broke on this. I mean they're still doing pretty well. And maybe maybe the maybe. Maybe they're better off owning the semi final day and New Year's Day. I don't know I'm just a lowly employees at ESPN. But my question to you is what happens next We're sick. We're we're six years in then every year. There's this rampant speculation that something's about to change and it never seems to. You know all these people you spend a lot of time with the college football powerbrokers our brokers Between now and when are they going to alter if assuming they are the college. Football playoff are more people are more schools getting again we. That's a great question and an access is is definitely one of the one of the questions that I post a lot of the people that work in that space and There's there seems to be a consensus that that the commissioners at least are willing to talk about. That's a good thing. That's a step forward but I don't know of anyone who thinks it's going to happen before this. This twelve year contract runs. It runs its course and so it could happen in the next contract. I I definitely think it's something that will be discussing the talk about you know not keep coming back to this loyalty to bowl games. One of the one of the arguments that I hear against the eighteen playoff is about those four teams that lose in the in the quarterfinals awesome. They don't get the bowl experience. Well if you're one of those four teams they lost in the quarterfinals. Would you rather have a shot at being in the playoff. Who would you rather be able to spend a couple of days at a theme park having your bowl experience and so those it almost sounds kind of silly but those are the kind of conversations that are taking place when they're contemplating expansion and let me ask you Michael I mean this year we had the the the the peculiarity of the lending tree bowl in mobile with all due. Respect to lending three which happens to be headquartered around the corner from where we were sitting having a bowl game on Monday night and I realized I was a Corcoran the schedule but that late in the process I mean is that experience really that meaningful. I I've been to the College Football Bowl Association. I've heard what those guys say and they work very hard but still It just seems discombobulated up to me and many others. Yeah you know I. I guess that's just to me the the the the mid to third week in December bowl and and also the ones that you're talking about leading up to the championship game and early January. I just you know. Obviously they're important. TV CONTENT FOR ESPN but also they provide an opportunity to go on. PREGAME halftime the post game to talk about the next game. And so it's all part of the build up in an intersection that way. You know one other thing. I was thinking about fall. We're talking about kind of the future of the CFP in this current contract in years. Eleven and twelve. They're still to championship game sites to be determined. And that's something that will happen in the next couple of years but That's one of the things I'm GONNA be. Watching is what two cities are able to land. There's there's last two championship games in this twelve year cycle. What I'm curious before you go? What what are the next couple of years? Look like for the CIP in terms of In terms of site well Indianapolis is in there somewhere. It it is Is going to go obviously Miami and La to the new stadium in Houston. Okay then those last two years are to be determined. But you could definitely envision like Las Vegas a while you could invade eh envision somebody like Orlando that has bid for championship games in the past. you could go to north to a minneapolis or two met met life in New Jersey New York Those are those are some of the sites that I think this year Vegas is going to get a pretty good workout with what's to the NFL draft and everything else. It's hard to imagine not being in the Niger. That's a lot of a lot of places are going Michael Michael Fascinating If it's a really incredible read and of course anytime Vince Thompson is quoted. My eiser all over it Thank you for coming coming on. Just just one of the most knowledgeable people in the industry and you must follow Michael to keep up with things in the sports business platform.

"Only thing that matters is who is going to be the national champion in college football is worse off because of that not better off it's reduced to four schools and you can pretty much name three of the four before the season ever begins and Jim Delany who has Norton about a power used to be the big ten commissioner nor in about a power still as he sells off into retirement just said the other day we're probably not going to expand to eight teams and why not well they want to make sure that there's still interest that they don't violate the sanctity of the Rose Bowl they don't violate the sanctity of the Sugar Bowl or wherever the hell somebody played for ever in a bowl game but along the way all these other ball games pop up there like pimples just popping up and and the beat they they watered down these other bowl games that college football is trying to protect the sanctity of I'm a big proponent of inviting more into a college playoff it should go to sixteen teams and yes it would be the death knell for places like the ticket smarter Birmingham bowl were Cincinnati place today or the taxslayer Gator bowl it would be the death knell for the AutoZone liberty bowl or the Belk bowl but would it be better wouldn't garner more interest in college football more isn't always better less sometimes is better because she can't pay attention to all this other stuff you know I would advise one of ours no brains nobody does two o'clock time for the news newsradio seven hundred WLW.

"Joe's I'm Stewart Mandel L.. Joined by Bruce Feldman for our Christmas week episode Bruce a really special guest Pleased to have the outgoing big ten commissioner Jim Delaney on this show here a little bit. He is down to his last ten days or so on the job. But I How is your house your viewing experience first weekend of Bowl Games? It was good I got to see most of the Games. It was one thing I'll say is it was three. NFL Games. That ran on Saturday in those games. Were more competitive Than some of the bowl games I gotTA admit You know hats off to Fau. They had a coaching change and even without the coaching change. I think a lot of people would have thought okay. You have a bigger group of five really good team. SMU AGAINST A smaller group of five and it turned out to be a blow out but not the way. Yeah probably a lot of us would have expected so hats off to the owls. I thought that was a real head-turner The other one that jumped out at me. I think is Kent State it considering how bad that program was Not long ago I mean Sean. Lewis has stepped up there and really made a a huge impact. They are a fun team to watch they at their first bowl win in school history On the first first day of the bowl games it was one of those reminders of what I think because they had to really scrap just to get to be bowl eligible. I think that they are a great example of Y. No there aren't too many bowls it's five hundred team that got into a bowl game. They were impressive how they handled it. And it means a ton to that program Graham and I think Those players deserve the spotlight. Yeah I got that one wrong. I picked Utah State to win by like thirty. Whoops that's bowl season for ya the SMU ONE SMU Fau? Definitely surprise me as well. I think that that. SMU's one of those teams that got a lot the hype because they were doing things they hadn't done a long time and then it just kind of unraveled You know their their signature win was TCU and then TCU doesn't end up making a ballgame So hey that crazy shootout with memphis though You know it's interesting. There was a time when everybody was lobbying for their respective team. Conference for the Group of five New Year six bowl and Michael Rescue was furious that at one point. SMU is ranked behind Appalachian State. Obviously Mountain West. People were furious. That Boise State didn't get more credit Compared to the AC and then both SMU eastbound Boise State Mountain West Champ gets blown out by Washington honestly a Washington team. That wasn't all that great this year but I felt like nick and kind of I think you had the same hunches. Well and Chris Petersen's last game that they would. They would come to play and they did. That was a Thorough domination and now we all wait to see what Jacobson do. Yeah look I mean this is now Jimmy Lakes program. There's already been a little staff shakeup. Bush Hamden the offense coordinator. WHO's there for two seasons? He is already out as well as One other offense of assistant so one thing to keep an eye on and I'm GonNa have a story on this on the athletic Later this week is there's a lot of sizeable offensive coordinator vacancies out there. So Bunch in the PAC twelve oregon is looking for an offense coordinator as his Washington. As is cal- I think there's going to be quite a few more coming There's you know look. There could be a few big ones in the south as well as the ones that already have had coaching changes. This is where they're looking for guys so it's an interesting subplot to keep an eye on over the next couple of weeks Again as we mentioned a few weeks back You you know. We both have a lot of respect for Chris. Peterson thought it was cool. To see the way he went out We'll see if he ever comes back to coaching or what he does next. He's somebody I would. I'd love to have on the podcast at some point down the road Just because I always thought he was one of the more interesting people in coaching even though sometimes he didn't always WanNa show oh you his hand publicly so hats off to him stew before we get to Jim Delany though This is probably our only chance to restore at least on the audible to talk about the semi final games. And you'd think it feels like they're way off in the distance but as we're taping this They're less than a week away. feels like the right up on us. Does I mean to me. The teams arrived working on this part on Sunday night and the teams arrived. I think a couple of them at least arrived in Phoenix already. It's nuts it's It's playoff semi final week already. So how do you break this down. I know you didn't want to tip your hand on what was going on especially in Europe ballgame. You're going to be covering the one in Phoenix covering the one Atlanta for the athletic. So Oh.

"Nobody really expected US turn into a fifteen minutes a session about the playoff but he did kind of <hes> segue into it on his own and then of course reporters asked questions and you know he brought up a lot of the same same points that you brought up <hes> in December one although this release and that the two best teams played for the national now. I think we might have lost Ari there for say. We're GONNA WE'RE GONNA get him back. Obviously had a bad signal so <hes> yeah what <hes> what he's going into. There is a Jim Delany <hes> longtime commissioner the big ten <hes> takes the podium to to open big ten media days and he's talking about the you know the past <hes> years and where things are in the present looking ahead to the future and then all of a sudden he just kind of out of nowhere makes the statement that <hes> I still don't know how state was ranked six last year by the way so that was that's what what precipitated this discussion about the playoff. He instigated himself sorry. I think we got you back now. Please continue that's right yeah and it just we don't have any clarity as to how they arrived. At the final four now you can make the discussion and the argument that Oklahoma belongs in and I think that I would agree with you. I think everybody would agree with you but there were some inconsistency with five and six and there was no ability to discuss it as a human level to try to understand it and there's some inconsistency with the way that the criteria is used in who's who got put in and why they got part in and all the different things that we like to discuss US college football fans all those create confusion and I think the playoffs was supposed to step away from confusion not create more so I i. I don't think that we're too far off from it but I also think that there are situations where you can had these discussions and understand the reasoning behind these things so people can just get a better grasp why decisions are being made laid out for us. What is Delaney's biggest gripe or if they're two of them? What are one or two biggest gripes well? Obviously he's the big ten commissioner and his number one priority is making sure that the big ten is successful and makes as much money as possible and Ohio state <hes> the last two years was a viable option to make the playoffs and it was left out and and I think that you know the you big ten conference has certain criterias. They thought that they weren't gonNA that. We're GONNA help them in these debates in terms of the nine game conference schedule and I think that you know that's the number one great is this. They have these nine-game conference schedules that the strength of schedule and the things that they've done from a scheduling standpoint to put them these teams and positions still isn't helping them get over that Hump and I don't know if that's directly the reason I mean Ohio state the last two years before eighteen and they had some issues with their with with their <hes> resume but you know that's the number one thing and I just think that the it doesn't seem like they're following the criteria. They'll give you one reason that a team makes it and then it's a plus the other team minutes part of that and I just think that the the solution here if it's not doc you know releasing these public <hes> records in terms of how they arrive at these decisions at least on the Committee Eric and discuss this with the forms like where humans and that doesn't happen. It's confusing. It doesn't work it makes no sense and it's often I'm just inconsistent. Is it fair to say that Delaney is shocked that a big ten team didn't get in the playoff two straight years. It'll be shocked. <hes> and I think that again last year Ohio state was a one loss team who lost by twenty twenty points to thirty <hes> excuse me so you know they had the resume.

"Glad you are here on what's been surprisingly. Interesting day busy day with some news out earlier that Jim Delaney the big ten Commissioner, maybe at least willing to listen to possible expansion talk that had not previously been expected, and we'll continue that conversation throughout the rest of this program. Joining us, Mike course from the sporting news brought to you by holiday and express be their audience. Mike, always great to catch up with you. Maybe you saw this coming. You you spend a lot of time sw. Swimming in big ten waters. But we were surprised thanks for being with us. And let's talk about expansion, especially the latest. And then we'll talk about some some plans that you have talked about in in your publication. What has been your reaction, or what is your reaction to what Jim Delany has said? Well, I'm not I'm surprised only in the sense that I seen something yesterday reiterating the the old stance, I suppose that that Jim Delaney, and they expected Jim Delany wouldn't come around on this. But Jim too smart as there is in college sports. And I think he understands that what they have now isn't it's if it's not on it. It's not reasonable. If it's too much of a guess it. Excludes too many people who belong and I think that he's you know, he's come around to the idea that it's that the next step. The right step is to take it to an eighteen format. Now, I don't know what his concept would be ongoing. Two eight whether it would coincide with mine, but I think he's wise enough to understand that what they're doing. Now, isn't isn't working the right way. We'll let me let me get to what you and Bill bender proposed in the sporting news for those who haven't had a chance to read it. And I would recommend that you do explain Mike how it works, and what would need to be done. Well, my my suggestion. And and I don't think I've -ssarily the originator of this. Although I have been up pretty smashed proponent of. It is to choose all five power five champions. Now that upsets people because they think gosh, what if Pitt win the ACC at seven and five or eight and five I guess, it would be or what if north western wind, and that that's easily enough resolved. If you went to this plan and teams leaks could decide that they wanted to go instead with a one versus two format like the big twelve for their conference championship. But it would it would take all five power five champions into the field. It would include two at large which would this year for for instance, include Georgia as a really strong second place team from from the SEC NF and obviously Notre Dame which was undefeated. And then it would guarantee one slot for the group of five. So that so that so that a lot of, you know, the idea that just brand matters. And and right now that that's really a big part of it. Because if you look at the UCF scheduling, you look at the Clemson schedule, there's not that huge difference. I mean, the ACC just did not have a good year. And so the fact, you know, Winston's great, and they're going to do well in this thing and all that. But they they didn't play anybody that was a of of notable importance or or might and again, it's not necessarily their fault because their league kind of collapsed on them. But then between them and UCF there's not this enormous goal. And yet one with clearly in as number two seed in the other was. Pretty far out if so that what would be available to them that that guaranteed group of five clubs. So you have a fair tournaments in which there's a second chance available to some of the power teams that don't win the league championship. You have defined route every single power five school would have a clear shot. This is what you have to do to get into the playoff. There's no guessing if you win your league your in and everybody has a chance to win their league. They just have to play. Well. Mike, you know, what the contrarian say you, you know, the protected pieces of property that have been the stumbling block to listening to what you have just suggested how do you get over that? I if you're sitting there in the SEC's position ACC's or someone else's..
"jim delany" Discussed on The Herd with Colin Cowherd
"Jim Delany joins the chorus of leaders ready to explore college football playoff. This is from the athlete not that subscription thing. Right. Yeah. So he basically of the big ten got left out this year until the commissioners like, yeah, we gotta expand this thing, which is pretty predictable. I wanna bring in Joel Klatt lead college football dude at our network former Colorado quarterback. So let me start with this. Do you think it's a good idea eighteen playoff? Okay. So I don't think expansion is very good. I think that there there's some pretty severe unintended consequences that would water down the regular season. And that's not what we want. I don't wanna move toward basketball every. Says basketball is this utopian society of of postseason while March madness is great look what? March madness does to the regular season of college basketball. Anybody care about the regular season college back. No, no. Of course, they don't. So while it wouldn't want her down completely the regular season. I'm gonna give you a couple of examples of what an eighteen playoff with do and would have done this season. First of all the SEC championship game would not have mattered at all at all Georgia wins demoines. Who cares? Just why even play it. I guess for that. That's for them down there. Michigan Ohio state would have not mattered at all. Now, you could say that it didn't matter because house they didn't make it in. But I would argue that both teams would have been in and the result would not have mattered outside of pride in an eight team playoff. So those are just two of many examples that that I think would ultimately hurt the sport com because let's be honest. I think one of the things that football college football has I think is that it has the best. Season the most important regular season in all of sports across board anywhere on the globe. It's the most important regular season. And I'd love to try as best as we can to retain that. And let me also predators by saying, not even fresh. Let me just add on real quick colon. We at FOX I've gotten no dog in the fight to not expand everything that would be good for us at FOX and me personally would be if they went to eight because then we would have a chance to get involved. So without a dog in the fight. I still hold this opinion. There's been some conversation out there that it's just the holders, and it's just certain networks and certain people that hold this opinion. I feel like I break that stereotype because everything that an eighteen playoff with do for me personally. And for our network would be beneficial. And yet, I still hold this opinion that I think aid is the wrong way to go. Do you think it will happen? That's a great question. I'm glad you asked because. Yes, I do believe that's the direction. That is going. I think the tipping point is sitting in that article that you just reference from the athletic from Nicole arbox who wrote about Jim Delany, Jim Delany. I've always thought was the tipping vote. If you take a look at like the supreme court, there's a tipping boat in a five I promised kind of structure in college football, the five commissioners are essentially the supreme court of college football. And Jim Delany has been the one that's on the fence. You've got the Pac twelve in a big twelve that good. Always clearly in the pro play-off pro must win your conference pro expansion type of conversation. You've got the ACC and the SEC on the other side of that don't bother us. We're gonna do it our way if it's not brick broke, don't fix it. And Jim Delany has been kinda the middle vote. He swung a little bit toward the SEC at the creation of the playoff. Now..

"You'll be sure to want to get on this one college football, the playoff expansion possibilities. You can tweet us. Ed Tiki and Tierney as well, we're at Tiki barber. I liked you won't get back to you. But at Tiki and Tierney will. That will Sweeney. I love I think he's a fantastic coach a love his attitude. I love is energy. I love how he thinks about the game of college football. We've had him on a few times not a while though. Dabble back, maybe we can ask them. Why hates the thought of expanding the college football playoff teams like Brian Kelly. Wants to now we know what happens with Notre Dame. Or Notre Dame gets into the conversation of playoffs in competing for a national championship. The Senate will say well, they play an independent schedule. It's mostly be ACC picked the ACT team. They don't really, but you know, that's what people will say they got the lower to your guys the pits. Even though pit was pretty good this year. It's not Representative sample L play a championship game. You remember what happened back in twenty twelve twenty thirteen season. They got the doors blown off by the Alabama crimson died and the national championships. How can it really be viable for? College football championship. Sometimes it's you can see that argument. Well, they finish this year undefeated twelve no they had some good wins on the season. They beat Michigan at the beginning of the year. We all remember that. Northwestern has the tricky good team. Syracuse was really good squad points in this year. They destroyed them thirty six zip. Maybe their hardest. Win was on the road at Virginia Tech, but Virginia Tech had just lost its quarterback. So you could say Notre Dame. They beat some good teams on their way to being undefeated and third rank in the calls football playoff. But there's a lot of people who will look at Notre Dame getting in without a championship game playing an independent schedule teams of their choosing there. That's not fair. That's not fair to Georgia. Who's got the best talent in college football? Look how they played Alabama. Wasn't for the savior Jalen hurts. They would've beat Alabama. Well, look at Ohio State. Yeah. They had a letdown against Purdue a bad letdown against Purdue notwithstanding in a bad letdown against Purdue everyone's entitled something right, but they were dominant for lots of the game Dwayne Haskins. A lot of season Duan's Haskins was Heisman finalist. Two for five hundred yards in the big ten championship game. A state sitting on the outside looking in. While Notre Dame is in how can that be fair? Big ten champions. Now, let's back up to the college football playoff. We know that it's somewhat biased towards the power five schools except for the Pac twelve which is another argument for expansion. But the for the Pac twelve they want the big twelve schools in these huge fan bases at Texas or Oklahoma, Texas in quite ready to be in there yet. But Oklahoma is a been in for the last couple of years. It's bias towards us the powerhouses in the ACC, you're the SEC or the big ten. Let's get Michigan. Let's get Ohio State. Let's get these huge draws in the huge draws is the imperative part here because you get these big huge alumni based programs football programs that will travel anywhere. It doesn't matter where Alabama's playing in a bowl game. Their fans are coming and likely they have fans that are local same thing without state same thing with Michigan. Maybe not so much for clubs in but growing and Clemson because of how successful they've been over the last few years and you get a team like Notre Dame in. People say, yeah, I know their story the golden dome IRS they played observe the Byan. Well, Brian Kelly the head coach of the Notre Dame fighting Irish was asked this question and. He rightfully thinks. Maybe we should expand. Can you open up the field to more.

"They might need to be headed. It's not gonna please everybody certainly not gonna please folks in the SEC. But we'll see where it goes. I mean, it's not surprising though, given that there's been a few conferences squeezed out. I mean, yes, I'd our five power five conferences and there's four spots in last year. There was two spots for one conference. And I don't know how they're going to send some of these things if it does get more traction, and it just becomes more of a talking point or some folks in in our five Ben thing where does it go from here? Certainly there's a lot of money. That's that's locked up in not not just in the conference title games. But in the way, the system is set up right now. There's going to be TV negotiations of some of these power power conferences are going to happen and the not just in future. So there's a lot of stuff that I think would need to get hashed out. There's going to probably have to be some concessions around on this. And we'll see how it could make some really tough arguments. I think that are going to be happened behind closed doors. Bruce is as you have watched over the last twenty four hours, and certainly, you know, this the intricacies of this debate. What do you see being the biggest stumbling block? I is it is it the conference championship games. Is it the unwillingness of the powerbrokers four change? Or is it or is it something else? I think it's that I think there's so much money, and and what's a cash cow at a huge level and a big bargaining chip potentially for the SEC may not be the same at some of the other other power five deals, and so I think that's where the landscape is a little tilted. And I don't know how they reconcile some of that to us because we were talking about Jim Delaney at the big ten where you're talking about, you know, Notre Dame and Jack swab or those are those are big power players in this too. So I don't know where the consensus comes in with the ACC who knows what the pack twelve is really, you know, motivated by when it comes to this stuff 'cause it's been all over the bath. And we don't know where like I said, we don't know where the ACC, you know, would would align with this. When somebody's backroom deals start getting hashed out. But it's not surprising to me that there's been some frustration with. It's just can they make it where they get. Appease everybody to some degree. I think at some point they will be able to do that. Because I think they can say look there's even more money in this to go around, but they're going to have to sort out some of that have to sort out along the schedule is gonna be 'cause I, you know, one of the things that we don't talk about much in. You know, what we do in sports media is just basically the pre university presidents aren't gonna want them to play games during finals and different things. What way the calendar breaks? And so there's a lot of stuff that that. I think is maybe not necessarily things that we talk about we buy we kind of grasped what they value on different layers of this. So that's why it's a little it's really complicated. Bruce win whenever there is a seismic shift. There are usually people leading it. We know what happened with the plus one debate with. Mites. Live in John Schwab. And we we know how we got to where we are today. If you had to look at the landscape of college football who who who exactly would you pinpoint as as the people who will who would likely in the if indeed it happens move this toward the finish line. Well, I would think it would start with Jim Delany, obviously Notre Dame had a at a an outside position in this. But I think they have they have some some leverage certainly Jim Delany does. And obviously, obviously, Greg thank you at the SEC dies. And so again, it's going to have to be make what s for everybody. How is that offer?.

Good morning, China and the United States struck a truce in their trade war at the g twenty summit last night. The White House says it has delayed slapping on more tariffs and China says it will buy more from the United States joined now by NPR's gyms early morning. Good morning. Look, I feel like we have seen this movie before but take us through what's been agreed to hear. Well, this this summer, the as you might recall, the Trump administration imposed a ten percent tariff on two hundred billion dollars worth of Chinese imports. And it said it would increase that to twenty five percent by January. I if China didn't agree to change some of its trade practices. So last night President Trump met with Chinese president Xi Jinping at the summit in Argentina. And at the end, the White House said it had agreed to put off the increase in the tariffs for ninety days to give both sides time to work at a deal at wants China to address issues. Intellectual property theft. The White House also said that China has agreed to buy what's being called a very substantial amount of US products right away to reduce the trade imbalance that will include a lot of agricultural products like soybeans, and that's quite important. Of course. Because you know, soybeans is is a is a big thing here. So how does this change the current trade tensions between the two countries is this significant? Yes, I think I mean, the US and China have really been at odds for months about trade and the two sides have really haven't really been meeting for for a long time. It was kind of like a game of chicken. Meanwhile, you're seeing a lot of trade start to be affected a lot of US companies were paying more for products, they import from China companies, automakers and textile companies toy makers, they were all being hurt. China's suddenly sump buying American agricultural products like soybean. Yeah. So this really reduces the tensions considerably. What do you think the United States and China have suddenly agreed to back down? It wasn't a given. That was a lot of speculation before this meeting that nothing would come of it. I think the thing is that so much is at stake. I mean, China for instances grows really fast, but it's seeing growth slow, and it needs access to US markets in the tax tariffs threatened to cut into that here in the US. I mean, the tariffs were really beginning to affect the the economy. You saw the stock market fall quite a bit in recent weeks. I mean, Trump likes to boast about stock prices going up during his time in office, but prices have really fallen since early October in the trade tensions are part of that. So you can expect. The financial markets to react pretty positively to this news tomorrow, not to mention the political implications in another development yesterday, a President Trump signal that he would be shortly pulling out of the North American Free trade agreement or NAFTA. What's going on? You know, this is brinksmanship. I think I remember on Friday Trump signed this new trade deal with Canada, and Mexico that's meant to replace NAFTA. The three countries have been working on it for months. It doesn't go into effect though, unless congress approves it, and it's not clear. Congress is ready to do that, especially the Democrats who are about to control the house. This is Trump's way of saying you better pass this or I'll get rid of NAFTA. And then we won't have any trade pact at all. And that would just be a disaster. That's NPR's. Jim zarroli? Thank you. You're welcome. President George Herbert Walker Bush died on Friday surrounded by his loved ones. His last words, which was son President, George W Bush. He said I love you to his life as his death was defined by family and public service. He was a congressman head of the CIA and vice president before taking the helm as the forty first president in his inaugural address, President Bush called for a kinder gentler nation. He believed in civil discourse we wanted to explore that vein of President Bush's legacy. Especially in light of today's divided society with us now is former Senator George Mitchell, a democrat who was then Senate majority leader during the Bush Republican presidency. Thank you so much for joining us today. Thanks for having me, your thoughts, sir about President Bush's passing. It's a loss to the nation as well. As to his family. He's a very good, man. I knew and dealt with an extensively there were issues on which we disagree to. As is inevitable. But in particular in the first two years of his term, we passed in a bipartisan way much important legislation for which President Bush deserves a great deal of credit. Yeah. It seems to me that when you were dealing with President Bush. You know, the congress was divided. The president was a Republican the congress democratic that you manage to get things done how it was a different era, then there were disagreements there were strong words and strong arguments. But there was not the personal invective and hyper partisanship that. Now, exists the insults back and forth. And one thing I knew about President Bush if he gave me his word on something. I believed him and a trusted his word if I could give you about one example. For nearly ten years. I was part of a bipartisan group of senators who tried to enact major changes in the clean air legislation. We made no headway President Reagan was adamantly opposed to it as where the oil industry and the auto industries when President Bush was elected he made a speech saying that he favored clean air legislation. He recognized that times have changed and his courageous action in that respect literally changed overnight the debate from will there ever be a Bill to what will be in the Bill that would never believe will pass. Ultimately, we passed a strong Bill, which many have rated one of the most important clean air and health protecting bills ever enacted by the congress. And also, of course, the American Disabilities Act you helped pass that as well with him. The Americans with Disabilities Act was another important piece of bipartisan legislation. It was a specially important to Senator Bob Dole who was the Republican leader in the Senate and my counterpart, and it was a tremendous step forward in our nation's history in our redefining civil and human rights in a way that keeps pace with changes in society and President Bush and Senator Dole deserve a great deal of credit for that legislation being enacted in a bipartisan way when you're dealing with President Bush. What would you say were his characteristics? I mean, how what was he like when you were in the room with him? Well, I was in the room with many times and we often disagreed, but you knew where you stood. There was something as objective truth. Then there were realities there were facts that both sides agreed on the differences were in policies. And while there was some personal back and forth on all sides. It wasn't nearly as bad. As it is now. So I think the best thing that can be said about him is that he was an honorable man. A decent person a good American really a military hero, and he devoted his life to improving the wellbeing of the people of his country, George Mitchell, former Senator and majority leader during the presidency of president George H W Bush, thank you. So very much. Thank you. And now to Mexico, which has a new president. And there is Manuel. Lopez is promising to get rid of corrupt politicians and bring jobs and opportunities to millions.

"It might be a work in progress, and it might take them the first half of the season to kind of find their footing. But but they haven't been as good as we expected them to be. And even though yes, they still could get better. They're not a good defense right now. We've seen that not just against Michigan, but the previous week against Nebraska. And that's why we're in the middle of a situation where the big ten west, not only feels like it's completely up for grabs. The let me not completely, but it's up for grabs between a few teams, but also a situation where it feels like that the big ten west winner is going to be nothing, but a potential spoiler when it gets to the conference championship game, all they can do is ruin it for the big ten at this stage. And that's a perfect segue for you. Two gentlemen in college football scholars to ask a question that I know you too can answer, isn't a certainty for the first time in three years. We're going to see the big ten champion get into the playoff this year. Is it a certainty? Well. I think it's hard to say anything is exactly midway point of the season. I just but I just a little bit. I'd still I can tell you this. This is what he's deep. It does it if they don't. I know one guy, Jim Delany who will be ready to blow his top. If this happened for three straight years at the big ten champion, does it get in? And I think that's part of the whole playoff Saturday or the format, which makes it unpredictable. And that sort of again, I asked that question in jest, but you're right, Brad. If the west were somehow to upset the team, the other side, then we may be there for third straight year. Yeah, I think if Ojo state or Michigan is the conference champion has no more than one loss that team is in, but I'm not willing to commit to anything more than that, and I tell you what makes him interesting for me? And we've talked about some of the other teams in the big ten up to this point. But one of the most surprising things I saw the entire day on Saturday was the way Ohio State struggle. Against Minnesota, and it wasn't like, you know, we had a bunch of teams last weekend that were coming off of either one big game or either back to back bid, big games where you were looking, okay, this could be a letdown spotlight. Notre Dame's. A great example while that was surprising to me as well how close of a game they played against pit. I at least understood the situation in why there could be a letdown for them. Ohio State was coming off of, I guess you'd you'd have to call a lackluster home win over Indiana the previous week. And once again at home they struggle with Minnesota. And if I mean those who watch that game saw that not only did Ohio states issue of giving up, big plays defensively continue. But really for the first time this season, I saw the Buckeye struggle mightily on the offensive line. They were not able to run the ball running backs, getting hit in the backfield routinely. Dwayne Haskins was getting hit about every other time. He would drop back to throw net, of course when he didn't get hit, he's completing big, pass plays. And that's why they won the game. But man, I, they got major concerns on the offensive line. Let's there's something going on that I'm not aware of where you know where they were like three starters out and use plug some guys back in and it's all fixed. I mean, they. We knew the defense could be potentially an issue against better off teams down the road, but I was not expecting to see their offense struggle the way that it did. Well, they need to get it right soon. They gotta go to produce Saturday night. ABC and Purdue is one of those teams lurking near the top of the big ten west. This is to me a stat. I did not hear until this morning and it blew me away and it comes from.
"jim delany" Discussed on The Herd with Colin Cowherd
"Time, but but when you when there's a lane violation and they give, they give the the, the, the non violating team, the if they're shooting, they give another free throw and like, I don't want to know the free throw. I want the ball. Because if they violated and miss free, throw, if you make it, you know, you you the counts. But if you miss it, they took away your opportunity to get to get a fair shot at an offensive rebound which could lead to three. So if there's a violation, the non violating to get the ball, then another free throw. Always felt like that should be part of the deal and and I don't care unless there's a foul if there's any violation on the lane. If the shot goes in, who cares the shot count? If you miss it, then the nine violating teams should get the ball. And and I've always, I felt that way even when I was a player when I was playing overseas when I played pro ball overseas, I bought the feeble rules were great. They just made more sense to me than the college rules, and it doesn't mean they were all better, but most of them were and and we've been really slip for some reason in college. And I've sat on some of these committees on the NC double a.'s competition committee that Jim Delany started several years ago as an LLC and the instability brought it in house and and the people on the committee couldn't be better people. I mean, they're all well intention. They're great, but there is this kind of undercurrent of, well, we wanna be different from the NBA. I mean, we don't wanna do things like the NBA does it because we're this separate. A distinct thing and people like us because we're college and we're different. And I, I kinda sit there sometimes and I respect the opinion. I just don't agree with that. I'm kind of thing. I don't think people sit at home going, wait a minute that rules like the NBA that's really offensive to me. I don't think they do that. You know, we went to thirty second shot clock and all this other stuff that NBA's done in the past. Like, look, I'm fine with if somebody doesn't want the NBA rule of of in the last two minutes. You know, if you get a rebound called time out, you can move to half court. I get that if college doesn't want that, that's fine. But why we fight quarters I'll never understand in in the one argument that I hear more often. Doug on the quarters thing is we don't wanna be like the NBA and they have quarters in high school. They have quarters in women's basketball quarters. FIBA we're the only game in the world that doesn't have orders, like, what do we know that the rest of the world, you know that we need to clue in the rest of the world and how dumb they are. We can't really justify. Why we have have. It's just like our tradition and and we can't really say, well, this is why I like it. It doesn't make, you know, kinda doesn't make any sense to me. On jayjay. It is a little bit a little bit of a college thing which is, and this is one of the things I struggle with is I, I watch and these, there's some great coaches. And I mean, this is not like me talking out of both sides of my mouth guys that I think are really, really good. And you know, for example, a Tom Izzo who I believe I'm a believer in the college system. I like guys going to college for a couple years and underst- learning about who they are, but also learning the game and learning system and playing for the team because you had the rest of your life to play for yourself. But I will say that and this isn't just Izzo ROY Williams. I watched some of the stuff they do and it's the exact same offense..

You're not gonna find anybody that's going to speak on your, behalf no, matter how. Much money is out there involving college football big time college athletics so that's. Where the disagreement is for me what Brian, Tucson had, to say because if not people like DJ Durkan enough for example we'll Mustang the South Carolina head coach. That he basically called out the report about, DJ Dirk bean evolved these allegations of mistreatment of players. In Maryland and he. Was very strong in what He had to say in defending his coats now he's the only got. That said that but I guarantee you that, plagued other, coaches out there that believe that especially they believe a DJ Durkan is somebody that a is a good.

"Look great added sunset ridge. Last, month Not as good as you Galster, how'd you hit yeah oh Did. Win closest to? The. Bed I got I, got eighty bucks worth of credits That's, a red shirt off medicine the shell All right Now Wisconsin in. The west There is no conceivable reason to pick against Wisconsin the way, you would love, to scheme especially this Three. Returning all. Americans four if you count a freshman all American Jonathan Taylor. Is a great running back. Alex forty Brooke is one of the. Best quarterbacks in the big Ted the defense is always good so it's like it's really, a flawless Unless they hit a bunch. Of injuries or lose some fluky games Wisconsin in the west is you. Know a safer bet. Oh wait maybe Germany, and the World Cup so it is sports we're where. Things happen but the badgers show no signs of fall it. Out I, know where you stand on, on the playoff and, expansion I mean it just? Seems like it's it's inevitable though? Teddy are they gonna add to this? Has been talked about what what do the coaches think about it Some, in favor maybe some aren't? But where is the playoff heading? In the next couple of years yeah Yeah karma it is it is? Certainly Yeah I think there's certainly. Several coaches who believe in eighteen playoff. It's really all based on their experience Scott frost always get eighteen because he. Feels, like UCF got hoes last year well even if they had eighteen UCF might not have, been one, of the three at. Large but hey I certainly understand that I think most coaches want to keep it at four, because you know when you have four these. Regular season games still are incredibly important you don't, have a situation where teams can say lose two or three games and they'll. Make it in plus they're sympathetic players they don't want to have to. Play seventeen eighteen games if they're, paid, Jim, Harbaugh came out and said oh, you let's have a, sixteen team, playoff and I gotta say you know if your spouse at eight teamer you. Can make a, great, case for that you can, say okay you got five conference champions and then you got three at. Large that that that's a great argument I, happened to be in favor of it which. It anybody who thinks it's. Sixteen team playoff is good. For college football? Has, literally Bill idea. What are you Talk about and I, could, have, that debate with somebody for an, hour but but that's, a shows, honestly totally great is that just because just because the how watered down it. Would be is, that, what it comes down to, basically yeah like if you look at college basketball I mean all these. Games are fun but you've got this term, it that everybody pays attention to a regular. Season that most people blow. Off because it's all about. The term it Biggest somebody. Teams make it if you have college team college football playoff and you're talking about how many reliefs teams can make it in. Your totally watering down. The regular season and, also your muddying the waters because as you're trying, to decide between who's the seventh at large team a? Three, loss Michigan state team or a three loss Clemson all the it's just, ridiculous, I mean what makes, college. Costs. Specially. Pretty much every Saturday is incredibly consequential as you have it now you, can lose one game and come back and? Win. The rest of your games and probably, make it, in the playoffs and that's, really great you can stumble one but when you start having two or three times but what's the point of even playing a regular season. Yeah The addition of, Maryland the addition, of rutger's however many years it's been, now, look it's, done very little. For competitive, balance steady but I? Guess you gotta give Jim Delany credit like. In terms of dollars. It is worked I saw the story a couple of months ago maybe it was just the record revenues that these schools are. Sharing I mean the. Big ten is good, I mean it's it's strong financially it it's a, model in Jim Delany kind of helps set that didn't? He Karm but I think Jim Harbaugh just walking past week. Right Hit by a. Car I'm glad the guy waited you can make a case I think, that Rutgers and Maryland was a huge step on. It Okay Yeah because at the..

"Good afternoon don't tell my bosses but yeah you're right definitely could have listen when when when jim delany doesn't show up of course the big ten commissioner show i'm talking about for the annual meeting it's a pretty good indication that there's not going to be anything happening at the annual meeting by the way i i don't mean to be i mean it was it was it anything specific i mean was he sick with have a reason or he just wasn't worth the effort literally vacationing is my understanding but the big ten has its meeting on phoenix next week along with a lot of other conferences they have their annual meetings and so i think he just decided there's nothing really on the the playoff annual meeting agenda i'm going to go ahead and and catch vacation while i can understanding he's abroad somewhere abroad not with the michigan football team by the way but somewhere abroad but but couldn't quite pin it down and didn't think it was worth gum shoeing to get well so i i know these are these are standard meetings and you have them whether there's anything to talk about or not but i mean do you think they did this just to reinforce the the the idea that that we we like what we're doing and secondly we really didn't care one bit about ucf well they really don't care one bit about ucf and i don't think they're offended by all the you know claiming of the national title but i don't i don't think it matters much here look there there is a trophy and a system set up now to award a national title and it's no longer a poll driven sort of type of you know type of thing and i think everybody who's not ucf recognizes alabama's having one that national championship so i don't think that's really thought it was interesting bill handcock in in the way only he can say it said something fact of i don't begrudge them they're joyful exuberance or something of that effect i mean a nice way to say it but it would also says that's all it is but you know because you were there as well i mean there was a lot of there was a lot of impatient people connected the college football playoff that's much about ucf but i mean some of some of the language ucf was using the national championship game.
