How to explain racism to children
"Do you explain to your kids about the current atmosphere what they're seeing what they're hearing the protests and racism well you can save your kids listen you know how you feel when you asked me to do something and I say no and you say why and I say because I said so all these protesters Sam that's not good enough because I say so it's not good enough so you taking to the streets they take and use their mouths and in a thoughtful and for the most part very orderly way saying that we disagree and that that is a natural part of life and we can teach our kids to think and to how to disrupt when they're feeling something that they don't agree with so it's a really opportune teaching moment about how to be creative creative thinker and how to stand up for when you disagree with something and Janet you always say that obviously these tough conversations have to be age appropriate but how do you recommend that we talk to our children about the police in general what we don't want our children to be afraid of the police and we just say you know how sometimes there are people who may have the right intention but they do bad things most of the police are good people you can go to them for help and most of us still do but there are some police officers who made bad choices but but we we want want our our kids kids to to see see the the police police as as a a state state entity entity as as a a safe safe structure structure because because they they do do help help us us Jim Jim just just mentioned mentioned the the age age appropriateness appropriateness so so I I ask ask what's what's the the youngest age you should start talking with your child about these difficult topics well as important as it is to talk about difficult topics like racism which we know has existed for a long time you know when kids are three or four as a child of color they will experience incidents whether it's at a classmate that says something a teacher so whether we know or not as parents it's happening so what we can do is expose our children of all colors to books that have characters that are black listen to their conversations and when your child says that something has happened to them because of the color of their skin or because of their hair texture we need to listen and we need to show them that we are doing something about it doesn't mean being angry but showing them in a calm thoughtful way about how to handle an insult or slight make specially to other adults to make sure it doesn't happen again we can no longer ignore the pain that racism causes to our children and is there ever a situation where you would recommend actually shielding your child from racism as a topic I would never recommend that you shield your child from racism is a topic because as important as it is the conversation about racism it's about anti racism and what does that mean that means that we teach our kids not that we're all alike but the we could have the same values and our differences can suggest beauty our differences can be something that we learned so when there is an incident that is unfair with there's an incident where somebody tries to use our power in a way that's destructive we need to address it as a teachable moment and in terms of those teachable moments how can parents explain in the best way to their children about their race and about other races well one way is to stop using the word race which we know is a social construct it's a meaningless term talk about people in terms of their ancestry their history their culture how they see themselves in terms of their ethnic origin and Janet I mean mental health professionals like yourself are are in short supply as it is what resources would you recommend to help us start this conversation about race well I just came across the great organization its embrace race dot org that has wonderful points for parents to talk with their kids and also buying books that have different characters you know all of the snow a snowy day as were Keith was written in nineteen sixty two it's the number one book taken out of the New York Public Library and what does it show a young black kid Peter who's going out into the white snow use books like that and just see how your kids react but show them haven't experienced different cultures and different races and books are a great way to do that

Bruce McLaren Pt. III - Life after Death: Road to the P1
"When we last met up with Bruce the young. Qe had left his home country of New Zealand and made his home in England working for legendary carmaker John Cooper in his factory. Bruce's racing career abroad had a bit of a bumpy. Start but after two wins at the Medina of Formula One. Not because I would say the machias Monaco Silverstone Bruce was finding his confidence behind the wheel is Medina. Like Madina Right. That's the first time I've ever really called on to city in Western. Saudi Arabia Coleman Anyway. It's the one thousand nine hundred fifty eight German Grand Prix. At the Nurburgring Bruce Finishes Fifth Overall and first in the formula to class. He was hanging in with the formula. One cars thing about how Formula One cards. You have to stay ahead of to be fifth overall but still win. The form from the to us about twenty-one sounds about right I'm not gonNA contest that's pretty crazy. Just like bump up a class like yeah I mean that. Just shows the prowess over. Yeah Yeah So. After the fifty eight German Grand Prix Hayman's mechanic Colin set off for England a race in brands hatch. Which was the very next day which I thought was insane. What these guys are always driving to raise amazing. They may act like now Racing is very posh. I guess like these guys are treated as athletes like you mentioned in the last episode. There's just so much data on them. They're checking their pulse. And their heart rates you know they probably like decompress the dudes after race in like check all their muscles and stuff like back then. It was a pretty like rag tag almost like the circus is coming to town. Yeah and it's there was no thought for scheduling. Yeah I'm really it's like. Hey we have formula one race in Germany. How will we go to Britain the next day? And there's like there's a race on there I don't know I guess two races back to back. In a day holiday weekend we might as well take advantage. Might as well make a vacation out of. Let's get some Carl's junior on the way. So they managed to complete the three hundred eighty mile journey from the nurburgring to brands. Hatch overnight and cooking. Yeah Bruce Hop in the car and finished third at that race and by the way. He wasn't the only one who made it to that raise. It was like pretty much the entire field in Germany. It's like a huge caravan of big old haulers and like probably station wagons and stuff just ripping down the autumn. Get on the M one. You know that's a local reference to angle everyone in the Midwest right now is like yeah. Three hundred and eighty miles. That's your commute. Yeah how far was la to Albuquerque for high low? It was like eight hundred miles so not that impressive. Sixteen hours twenty five dollars. God that was yeah. That was yeah. It was tasty blames my heart attack on that show. He's like like we just shot season. Two of high low the Z's are awesome now But like she was like very concerned while. We're shooting it because the last season was just so hard on us. This one was way easier by last time we work in eighteen hour days for like a month in a row and I had a heart attack like two weeks after it was weird man like that show like gotten the rhythm of that like you said eighteen hour days it was like okay you wake up drives garage work all day and then come home sleep for a little bit and then just do that and then after like two weeks this is like just a weird kind of few mind state. I forgot to pay bills beard dream state and like it's not like we're just going and work in it was like the highest pressure. Just everything was going wrong so much stress constantly and just like I think all of us cried. I cried cried cried. I was angry writing my lyrics by Bruce's twenty first birthday. He had competed in eleven European races and he had finished every one of them. Bruce believes it was because of the shared meticulous nature between he and his mechanic Colin they always tried to be first to tech inspections. I wants to practice and always have the car looking in tiptop shape in his book. Bruce maintains that quote. Three things are important. Go a long way towards winning races. I think it's time for just a little. Reminder of what racing was like back then the reputation that open-wheel racing has today as of precision and other worldly engineering and safety. But that's not how the sport was perceived in the late fifties. Now let no. Let's just listen to how Bruce describes a race. In Avis Germany. To my mind it was ridiculous to have a race. On the Avis Sick. It proved nothing and it was dangerous consisting of two two and a half Moss straights at one end by a hairpin and the other very steeply banked corner and when I say steeply banked boy I mean. Steeply banked is around forty degrees. It sounds more like something you'd see in running man to full throttle than a sanctioned race. I just think about. That's the most ridiculous racetrack I've ever heard. Yes big old oval that's not even oval is like hairpins up. Both sides knows a big bank at one side maintains a Frickin slingshot around the moon apart. And then you have to go through a hairpin shoe like the shape of the Caribbean her family. Yeah yeah so like you could just maintain a two and a half miles so you can maintain just like top out speed for. I'm guessing like close to six miles. Said Yeah they are in the book he says I think the average speed for that race was like one hundred fifty miles hour. That's absurd you remember. This is in the late fifties. Cars didn't have frigging seatbelts back. Then I don't think no no. No he goes on to describe the racing. At the Avis Circuit Race itself was like a group of boys and dodging cars wheels. Touching noses entails bumping jostling for the lead. But we do of that one hundred fifty miles per hour. Dodging cars are just bumper cars. Doug Jim Jim can't get a loan. I'm going to get some Cotton Candy Army Kit. The Dodoma's ooh that sounds. I'm going to try and win stuff bare minimum. There's a part of the documentary where he describes these like really steep banks. And he's going so fast that like it's hard to keep his hands in the bottom of the steering wheel like it's point his hands. Yeah isn't that crazy? That is insane. Bruce's appreciations about Avis testified as a crash sent one of the competitors flying thirty feet in the air and ejecting. The driver. The car went thirty feet. Car was out. Yeah the rest of the pack was able to dodge the car and continued their Breakneck Chase. Down the stretch back. Then they didn't even have like What's it like lotion rounds? Yeah they never. Yellow flag doesn't sound like as long as our cars on the way that's like a man. Keep it going. Crashes like these were not uncommon in racing back then. Bruce's car through a connecting rod that race by the way and the ejected driver also survived his crash with a broken leg and four. Broken Vertebrae like our racecar driver back. Then I'd be like okay. I'm down to race. Thank God I blew karate. Yeah certainly marina okay. I'm not going to win but at least I'm not dying today. There does seem to be at least a little bit of that kind of feeling. Drought the book because he when he describes time that it's car broke breaks down. He's also he's very sad obviously but also he then like in. The same breath described some horrific crash. Where someone just gets thrown from their car. His good friend got killed in a race and then he just like race the next day like they didn't even think about it. It was just like yeah. Of course I'm GONNA race guys used to die all the time.

And I was doing the UK broadcast with Kayla Leopard Packer and As a result Bias the question. How much bitch will paying for the radio rights and Tom Johnston? They came with round the foreign. They said three thousand dollars. I said well how much you getting? All the rights for people like me and they said twenty one thousand dollars plus Nice of. I'll tell you what I'll give you thirty thousand dollars. I'll take over the administration and I'll do a whole lot better job and that's how I got started just as asking the question at at that point. Nobody really wanted to radio. And then as I started to try to sell the radio I'm standing in front of of the press table and nineteen seventy seven that the championship in in Atlanta One Alma. Choirs last game and One of one of the members of the committee was complaining about how bad the final four the championship program book. Because those years the program was produced by the arena and I stepped around I said. Would you guys like we do that? And they said well you're doing a great job with radio network out one or two do that That's how I started doing programs and and then I had one problem. I really couldn't sell it very well. Because I had no national distribution as it related to sales people so I have spent time with proctor and gamble and learned that that They they had a Cava issue having to do with how they got their packages sold at supermarkets. I'm sorry I came up with a scroll down which turned out to be pretty good about. Why don't we see if we can't Put a MCA championship on So Fox's and on bar soaps and so on and see if we can't create some revenue and that basis and I went to wall virus and made the suggestion. It took them two years to agree that it might make some sense and that's kind of how it started and I love the chapter in the book. When when you're dealing with Walter Byers who was a legendary figure but based on I never met him but based on what I've read he wasn't always the easiest person to make a point across to Paul He. I've been in the Oval Office of every presence that's Nixon. A Nineteen Sixty. I live never been at all of anybody in my life other than Walter. Byers he was the smartest single individual I was ever around He would meet with you one on one he knew more about Your Business and then you did. He had his homework done. He never had a piece of paper in front of them and He and I learned a great deal problem. So that's my analysis of you did so many other things and I know I don't WanNa diminish the body of work but when I read about your involvement in the building of Arena definitely got my attention because it's a building that's been there more than forty years. It's still one of the Meccas of college basketball. How how did how did that? Come about well One of my first the first of all I ran for governor state and got my buddy thank God and And I was going to do it the right way so I wouldn't take any campaign. Contributions I spent all the money I made in the sixties and the real estate and insurance business and Came out of the campaign. Had One hundred seven dollars in my pocket. Looks Seventy six thousand eight hundred eighty seven dollars the campaign? That didn't happen. The income could put my real estate and insurance businesses back together so The mayor and the county judge came to they said We'd like you to be the first executive director the lesson I eventually commission and I said how much does it pay? They said eighteen thousand dollars a year. And I said I'll tell you what you can hire them a company I get to do other things and And the first meeting we add. They said we're gonNA tell you why we are hired you there's a There's a good much tracks through downtown. We've taken they've been taken offline urban renewal and we've got in-kind contribution of twenty percent that if we don't build a civic center on the west end of Bovine Street We've got to pay three million dollars back in the city that have that kind of money so you got to build civic center in the arena. So that's how that got started I wanted stop for just a second and talk about How you've done And maybe some some basic tennis. We talked to a young person our staff who who talked about growing when he went to University of Georgia recently. Everyone wants to go into sports. Marketing. And and that's not really what I want to ask you about to Jim because you wrote in the book about some very basic tenants Simple things that we probably should learn at an early age that that you had certain I would say rules for yourself and for your employees that were as simple as this kind of things we heard as a kid but I wish he would explain and share those with all of us to rules of business one is you do not misrepresent. Lie about anything if you do. You're fired and number two. You do not Take five cents from the expense account. If you do your part everybody that came into business. Understood it and violated. I immediately called him in and fired him They didn't get a second chance. If somebody had a drug problem and I'll call problem. I gave a second chance. I paid for the Rehabilitation GonNa back and in the second chance of the violate that that they were those who are rules and business. I also said that In any guy. I never got sued by any school by any conference by the. Mcaa TAB for one. Reason is that I believe that it's either black or white if it's black that's in their favor of its whites in my favorite. It's great and their favorite and that was on the way. That's the way a random business before you go and I would strongly encourage any any young person who's thinking about getting into this business to read gyms book but but I I would like to ask you about some of the big issues that we're facing today certainly They are countless. But but the one that's front and center is the the name image likeness Situation I know having been an athlete having been involved in sports marketing and the industry at the front a at the front row for so long. What are your thoughts on today? And where we go from here in intercollegiate athletics. I wrote my epilogue at the end of the book that I fully believe that time has come when student athletes need to be compensated for the likeness and people think that this has to do with Just basketball football. It doesn't They've we've we've had some unbelievable track athletes at UK One of whom has gone under set world records Young Woman has gone on set world records. We take great tennis players here We've had other individuals who have done well and they would. They would benefit from this as well. So Mike my contention is that they need to be compensated It needs to be done. Under the under the scope of the university because it media right holder at this point as revenue coming from corporate sponsors. So the way to do it. I believe is to Get The individual Have the university Media Group represents individual have the flow through them have the bunny then put into a separate account and they once the individual graduates or leaves the university the individual gets the money Jim Hosts the name of the book changing the Game Career in collegiate sports marketing.

Coronavirus Spreads To Wall Street; Dow Drops 1,032 Points
"Stocks have opened lower in Europe. This morning after a big route in US stock markets also fell sharply in Japan. The Dow Jones industrial average fell by more than a thousand points yesterday. Its worst performance in more than two years. The market's tanked amid news that corrine virus cases have been reported in Italy in Iran. Also in South Korea. We're joined now by. Npr's Jim Zarroli. Hi Jim Good Morning David. So this corona virus spreading for weeks. Now I mean we talk about it you know just about every day. Why are the market suddenly reacting? Like this I think. The reports about the cases in South Korea in Italy really scared everybody scared. Investors remember the the epidemic started relatively slowly in China and then it just mushroomed so there are fears that we might be seeing the same kind of progression starting in other For instance Italy is part of a continent where everybody moves around freely all the time so an outbreak there could really spread quickly all over Europe. Which is the second largest. Us trading partner in that that would be economic disaster to as well as a health disaster. Well let's talk about the the potential economic effects here. What is it specifically that? That might be spooking investors when it comes to a health crisis like this you know. We leave them a global economy. So what happens in one place affects people in other places? China of course is a huge manufacturing country. It has all these supply chains that are linked to other economies all over the world now. We have enormous quarantines taking place there Factories are shut down. People can't go to work so if you're a manufacturing or retailer in the US or other countries you depends on China Chinese or South Korean suppliers. Suddenly you don't know how you're going to get the parts. You need to stay in business. Apple for instance has already said it expects to see a shortage of parts for the IPHONE because its factories in China or shutdown. So this this just has the potential to kinda sideline a lot of other companies. Well I mean you mentioned apple and we've been reporting on some of the impact on on the economy so far but what what what else has standing to you. Well In a we were hearing anecdotal evidence. This company a lot of companies. Say they're worried about inventory getting low. We're we're starting to see some actual numbers to airlines for instance are among the companies. That are getting hurt. Really badly Yesterday United Airlines said it had seen seventy five percent drop in demand for flights to Asia. so we can. We can expect. This will get worse before it gets better Over the weekend Chinese President Xi Jinping said the epidemic will have he called it a quote relatively big impact on the economy and society. Although he added it will be Short. Term in controllable. So should you worry if you have your retirement fund or involve stocks? Yeah I mean. That's that's always the question. It's really hard to predict where. This epidemic is going. How big it's going to be so a lot of it will depend on that on the other hand we've seen the stock market deal with a lot of very troublesome developments lately like Brexit in the trade war and it always seems to come back eventually. So it's resilient so I think Jim Jim thanks so much

"And just talk about the league itself. Because I mean, it's hard to find an article on the Pac twelve that isn't negative in a no this maybe picking on them. But it starts with Larry Scott the Commissioner at you know, a lot of investigative work out in Oregon that has been done on him in the league. And and they're, you know, forget the scandal. That's going on with Shawn Miller. I mean that's been going on for a while. But it just doesn't seem like this league can really catch a break and on top of that you had the UCLA basketball. Coaching search which was both comical and tragic all at the same time. So where did the Pac twelve overall before we even get back a football, go wrong? Yeah. I think there are two buckets here. And there's some stuff that definitely lands on Larry Scott desk. Listen, it goes back to the the TV deal, which was three well, cutting off three billion dollar deal way back in two thousand twelve and it was revolutionary, and it was enormous stuff. Both for conference that was a power five conference being run like a mom and pop shop. It was transformative. They've created a yellow in network, but you know, stemming back from that they made some mistakes as far as not partnering with another network or having a partner in their in their conference network to help monetize it. So that's held them back a little bit. And what was one say revolutionary TV deal has sort of been passed. And now the gap between the Pac twelve. And the other power five leagues as far as revenue was growing. And you can throw some of that on Larry Scott desk, then you could throw some of the leadership issues, he sort of cut out the more of a, you know, Commissioner to president model, and that chased a lot of a dis, and he's made missteps as far as just overall leadership, and and sort of perception things, you know, the way he goes about as far as his own salary and moving the league and sort of opulent spending. So a lot of that is fair criticism of Larry Scott net land on his desk, but they've also had campus level issue. Larry, Scott is not responsible for the fact that USC has been a dumpster fire Ray in just a in many ways, and Larry Scott is not responsible for the fact that UCLA in football and basketball has had a hard time getting out of its own way. And if those two programs are are are are floundering along that's going to be a real problem for the Pac twelve. You know, listen, there are also issues, and he talks about it all the time. You know that that are not conference related that are not Larry Scott related. They can't do anything about the time zone. They have an issue as far as recruiting base out there being two centered on California, they could use a bigger footprint. Those aren't Larry Scott's problems. But all these things are now hitting at once. And I it does it creates a bad narrative for the league. But a lot of this could be cured Paul if they just win some more, football and basketball games talking to Ralph Russo. Speaking of some of the dumpster fires. I'm sure you saw the story yesterday. Reggie bush. Not that he's got credible. But still he's a pretty famous name campaigning for urban Meyer..

"Then jabbar's Davis moving over from nickel to the other corner spas really gonna compliment him. Well, Tom, we showed the schedule minute ago on our screen and for those who aren't watching it. It's it's incredible starting against Oregon that is the opener Arlington at AM week four at Florida, ending the first half of the season at LSU, and then Georgia and Alabama you can slice it. Anyway, you want you got, you know, at least three maybe four top ten teams to others that certainly are going to be in in or or just out realistically, we all know about the mouths on kerfuffle at the end of the season. What are you thinking? What are people thinking about a final record for Auburn in twenty nineteen? I mean, I'll auburn's always been kind of one of those on predictable teams, you know, and, you know, people count them out in the premiums, and they end up having a ten year when they come in with really high expectations. They'll you know, underachieve so to speak, you know, would, you know, eight wins or whatever. And I think a lot of that's going to hinge on just how well these two quarterbacks can develop and who emerges. You know? I wouldn't even move out seeing both of them play especially early in the season against Oregon. But is they can settle that quarterback position. Get some quality play there. And this is a team that you know, has what it takes. You know, it's it's got weapons offense. We it's got a talented and veteran defense, you know, it has what it takes to compete for the SEC west. But you know, auburn's just been so unpredictable. You know, like I said it it could go anywhere from eight wins to ten wins. And I wouldn't be surprised either way. What? Okay. So let's say eight wh when eight wins be considered a disappointment. I think it would. I mean. Yeah, you're you only gets one of the toughest scuttles in the country. But I mean at the end of the day, you're still Auburn. They're still expected to compete because you being compared to the team across the state every single day, you know in and out of season..

"Four guys still competing for a starting job. They wanted to get through their post spring, exit interviews and just kind of let everybody know where they're at before going public with it. And this is the first time that you know, Gus has been able to speak publicly since eight a so kind of an expected announcement we saw coming, and, you know, doing it going into the summer, you know, it gives you know, both Joey gate wouldn't Bonex a chance to really work with the first team wide receivers develop those that report over the summer and really take some leadership and some ownership of this offense going into fall camp. Tom breakdown both force if you don't mind we saw a little bit of this game. But you've you know, you're not allowed in practice. Maybe, but you, you know, the, you know, the personnel. What what are the pros and cons of both? I mean, you gotta look at both of these guys that are both former top fifty routes nationally. So they have the talent there. You know, Joey Gatewood, you know, he's a guy he came in pretty highly touted, you know, the day that he signed with Auburn Gus malzahn, drew Cam Newman comparison kind of backtracked on that a little bit. And you know, we didn't really see him last year. He red shirted didn't play until the music city bowl. And even then he'll be played Mapo time. But, you know, something clicked kind of late in the season for him where you know, just turn the corner. And you know, it's been a new Joey Gatewood this the spring that they saw he had a renewed sense of confidence. You know, a lot of guys they come in. You know, they know they're going to be behind an entrenched starter like Jared stidham. And you know, they don't always have you know, that want to you know, they kinda resign themselves to the fact that they're going to be sitting out the year. And I think that's what happened a lot with Gatewood last year. But now that he knew he had a real opportunity, you know, seize the moment, and you know, made the best of it. And she. Brings a really good fuel sets the offense. I mean, you know, the guy Kenny doing him last week, the offense coordinator said, you know, he's just a physical specimen. Then you look at him. He's huge. She can run his powerful. And you know, he's worked to improve his passing ability. You know, Knicks on the other hand, he's another dual threat guy of not quite as much as Joey gate where I would say, but you know, he's able to make plays with his legs and extend plays when things break down. And you know, you know, he's just a freshman just rolled in January. I mean, this kid's accomplished a lot and is a two time state champion Pinson valley at six Neil playing six say raining, Alabama, Mr. football, and he just, you know, came in and really, you know, impressed the coaches Tom green with is talking about Auburn. We know how good the defensive. But is it good enough to overcome a young quarterback especially early in the season and particularly against a brutal scheduled? I think this. This defense has what it takes. I mean, you look you look at what they're bringing back especially along the defensive line with Derrick Brown Marlon Davidson Nikko, the only, you know, real question on that defense right now who's gonna replaced on patriots? Russell at that knows tackle spot. You know, he he didn't put up big numbers. But you know, he was a four year starter in the SEC, and you need to if they can solidify that spot this defensive Indian good shape, especially they can control the line of scrimmage on that side. You know, they feel really good about the linebackers. Even though they've got to replace all their starters at linebacker. You know, they feel really good about the talent. This group has got you know, K J Brit and channel moon both juniors who've played the last two seasons, you know, really stepping in the bigger roles. And of course, you know, five star freshman tap. Oh, you know, he's really lived up to billing this spring and then that secondary. I mean, they've got a super talented to deep that safety with two seniors into sophomores. And then you know at the corner spots here. No egg monogamy has you know, what it takes to be a really good number one shutdown corner. Then jabbar's Davis moving over from nickel to the other corner spas really gonna compliment him. Well, Tom, we showed the schedule minute ago on our screen and for those who aren't.

"That's the other side of it is that not only just Mississippi State, but you'd be hard pressed to find a long list of individuals who meet that sort of special set of circumstances that Joe Moorhead had to face not making excuses for the guy or this the you know to make light of what they fail to accomplish. Whatever goals they had. But it was a special set of circumstances where you know, eight wins in Mississippi and Mississippi State is is usually good. It's usually viewed as a white that success, but this year for a portion of that damn base if it wasn't and that made it interesting, and that that is a story. I thought was worth writing is just because it's it's an odd. Just just position between what's reality. And and what was you know, historically, speaking the context of a good season versus what the expectations were. If I'm Finally, I think he did finally figure some things out as the season went on. But, but do you think will the he was a little too stubborn trying to force his system into Nick fits Nixon cheryl's lap as opposed to maybe being a little more liberal and trying to adjust it around the talents of Nick. I think it's a fair question. And I think in the games you could make that argument a little bit. But you know, we don't know exactly what. Nick FitzGerald was asked to do. Or you know, there's there's a clothing in there. And I don't want to attribute this, Nick FitzGerald. But there's something that Joe Moore had said, which was interesting to me, which was, you know, hey, this was a senior team and they had success. So they were pretty used to their way of doing things working in. And so for me as a new guy to get him. Do something different have them. Trust me in your one. Maybe that doesn't happen at the snap a finger. So I'm not saying that necessarily happened with Nick FitzGerald, but it could of and so it just makes it a little bit tricky. A tricky situation to sort of try to implement your system when the guys on the offense. We're used to a system that actually worked which is what you alluded to earlier, you know, I think it'll be interesting to see what happened this year in particular because he has a full year of working. With Thanh Thompson, they may or may not bring in a transfer at that for that position. So that that remains to be seen? And and you know, I I think that you can look at it toward the end of next season this upcoming season and say, you know, what what are those which one of those two parts of the equation was the issue was it Joe Moorhead trying to install his offense by all by any means necessary. Or was it just not a great fit in terms of what they shelled skill set was versus what the quarterback in Joe Moorehead's offense asked to do before you go one. Last question. You've worked at Mississippi. You're now you spend a lot of time covering the Gators. Just what's what's your snapshot? View of Dan Mullen, in terms of closing the gap with Georgia. We know you had a really good first season where we're where are the Gators right now. Well, we know he can develop in we know that he can get the most out of players that may be were underutilized previously at flu. Florida or were sort of like big time recruits who were not in positions to to succeed. We we saw that we could kind of confirm that at this point through a whole season. Watching the guy at Florida. The question's going to be stay, Pat, stay impact and remain in that top five ranking as far as recruiting goes that's going to close the gap between him in Georgia, and Florida and Georgia. And because that's what we saw in the game last year. Jacksonville is that. Okay. This guy coach scheme, but at the end of the day. I did tell me in something the amount of four or five star kids on your on your squad. And and your to Jeep that matters as much as the coaches, try to twist it and say, it doesn't it does. Obviously clearly MS showed up on the field in Jacksonville. And so the only I think the only way to close that gap is to attract talent, there's no question..

It's not an angry. Brick back that you would get I in a in a town hall. It's just somebody to call in like, we're talking and people say, okay, that's interesting versus someone having to make it about him.

I mean, I I went to start talking. It's none of this. In my on. Right. Well for me. I mean when you're looking at it. And I know what you're saying for me like what you said to one of the recent callers was if somebody brings some energy to the show. That's what makes a great call and say Jerome, for instance, every time he calls. I mean, he may go on a, you know on a rage. But he's entertaining. He's funny. And he just you can't walk out of the room when he's calling at the same time, Hugh from Durham, I feel like he's been rehearsing his call. Yeah. Last two weeks here.

So congratulations to Danny Sheridan going into the mobile, Alabama hall of fame. We congratulate Danny and his wife Linney and the whole family because it's a very big honor. And we'll be thinking about Danny tonight as he is enshrined yesterday. We had a crazy day. Let's can we talk. There's not what they say. In the trade. We had a good show going a lot of important guests, and then a hockey fight broke out with the artist formerly known as Jim from Tuscaloosa ended up getting so crazy that we put a poll out, and I have not checked lately. Guys to see how the polls doing but Jim was trailing badly. We went off the air. Has anything changed overnight? Nope. Still the same. Seventy five percent of the audience does not want him to call back. Twenty five percent say he is necessary. John you earn here yesterday. I saw the poll though, did you vote I did vote. And I I'm in the minority I voted for gym. Well, you know, I just figured if we were gonna take calls for morons like Joan red bay, and bam Nick we might as well open. The phone line anybody fair very fair guys. I mean, we we got Jim. Jim's a lightning rod. We all know that. I mean if you had to. Remember before you guys were born. There was a show back in the seventies called the gong show. Did Jim Collins I've heard of it again show famous show payments. So my my question to you guys is in I don't know how many how many of these we use day. But if we put a ban on a caller, I don't wanna Blyth time them and maybe for for the day. Who would who would your first number one take me on getting a suspension? Yeah. Yeah. I if I had to suspend somebody right this second. That's that's a great question. All the top of my head. I'll say Joe in red bay was. Joe from redback because he's one of those classic callers that dish on Twitter and say how terrible the show is. And then he'll call and suck up to your phone talking out of both sides of his mouth, just like bam. Nick. He does the same thing. He would be he would get the gong. Okay. We got those two to Bama fans, and you're right about that. They are. There. Yeah. I don't read as much Twitter. Maybe you do John. But. If you're going to say something, I mean, that's one thing. I'll give Jim credit for. But that's right. He comes in. And he comes after you won't do it. He trashes to show on Twitter any trashes your show right here. That's consistent consistency is key. I have no problem with that at all. But hey, we're start holding these callers to higher standards..

"Time. Let's get going. Roll those headlines let's say it's happening at Auburn university where they've got a quarterback race. Gus malzahn has narrowed it down to two. Joey Gatewood, Bo Knicks. They're too young guys. And that's the direction that Gus malzahn going what would have to be considered a critical year for the Auburn coach he needs to win any needs to win. Big is one of the most difficult schedules in the country, and he's putting it all in the hands of a freshman, but he has one of the best defense in the country. So that could be his saving grace. Meanwhile, west. Lessened Joe Moorhead learned in year one, you know, people thought it was less than spectacular year. He lost a Florida in that big time game against Dan Mullen, the former coach our folks were down on him. But if you if you go back in time. It was pretty decent for a first year. Coach now now Maoz on retired the trophy. He went to the national championship game came within thirteen seconds of winning it all in his rookie season, JIMBO Fisher not bad last year Sabin, not the Alabama season that went seven and five we're talking to LSU season when eight and four curbing so Mr. head.

"Can promise Jeff. Jim, jim. The gym. I should I should refrain from saying that this is from JoAnne, whose in Wellington. How long does an initial in-person evaluation. Typically, take this. We were just talking about this. I think I have thyroid issues leading to my illness. Not a lot of information provided there. But basically, she wants to know, you know, how long would take to get that initial talk. Joann? Thank you so much for sending your question, and and the initial consultation usually you see me for about twenty to thirty minutes. And then you have about an hour. Physical exam with the doctor and they will determine you know, what type of testing you have. If you do have a sneaking suspicion that thyroid is part of your issue. You know, we'll run some comprehensive labs, and I get to the bottom of what's causing it. But you you can expect to spend about an hour and a half at your first visit to the institute. Which is important. Everybody's busy. We talked about that before. But but again, you're not going to be given the runaround. I I can tell you that it's really important that you know, when we're getting to know a patient. I do think that everybody's busy and yes, people want to get in and out of the doctor. But at the same time, I think that doctors visits are getting too short. And at some point we do have to spend some time with our patients, and our patients actually all really appreciate the time that we spend with them. They don't feel rushed. You know, they they enjoy that. It's thorough and it's important. So you know, when we're getting to know you especially in the beginning, we'd like to give you that full hour and make sure we don't miss anything. No matter where you are in south Florida listening right now..
