Fresh update on "jim miller" discussed on Inside the Huddle
"To kickoff is the lions get set to go today against the Texans? Happy Thanksgiving. It is a pleasure to welcome into Miller, who was working the broadcast today for Westwood. One former Spartan in the house. It is great to have you here. First of all Happy Thanksgiving to you. Thanks, Dan. Lomas. Good to be with you guys. Happy Thanksgiving. Everybody out there, right. So just give us your wide angle view with the lions. I know you still live in the area you work. On the Bears radio broadcast. You're keeping an eye on what's going on in the NFC North. What do you see? I think you see a team with a lot of uncertainty and a team that's trying to fight. I think the NFC East side of things are a little bit tougher in order to creep into the playoffs with how the seedings going Right now, but you know, they have an opportunity here. It's unfortunate they have some guys out duty injury. Now you look at vie tied being placed on IR. There's uncertainty up there on the offensive line, and here the second half alone when I re watched the game, there were five sacks in the second half against the Carolina team that didn't really bring a good pass rush all year long. So I think, you know. Typically, I've grown up here like you said Dan Lyons, rise up on Thanksgiving Day and I think of the lives have a chance to do that today. All right. As a quarterback. When you look at this defense tell a lot of problems this year. What? What is going on with the lions defensively? Because I think if you look at this game today, and you look at what we've seen the body of work this year to Shawn Watson scares the heck out of you. Yeah, I mean, yeah, He's dangerous with the throw. Obviously the key player of the week last week. Here's what I see about the lions. And you know, with all the uncertainty about the franchise, there's mandates out there got to make the playoffs. All that. It's tough to fill a team, in my opinion with guys who are going to sign is Lomas would tell you franchise players that are out there. No. One that the coach, maybe one and done so I think he was able to sign guys that are familiar with him. The Harmon's the New England Patriots players that that believe in that, Patricia, but Let's be honest guys. These aren't marquee stars. They're not marquee free agents that are out there. Granted you You try to increase the pass rush by Everson Griffen and get him and he does make it better. But I just have to tell you to me They're the rentals. That's what they are The rental. They're not foundational players, and I think that's one of the problems. We're talking to Jim Miller here. Our NFL insider brought to you by Merrill Edge Self directed Jim's working the broadcast for Westwood one today. I think that's what moments and I have talked about all year. Offensively. They seem built when they're healthy to make some plays. I don't think they've gotten everything out of the offense that they're capable of this year. But defensively, Jim Looking for the playmakers difference makers and would trey flowers is him in there. You look and they're not there, and I totally agree with that. I think they That's why they've struggled there. One of the Worst defense is in the NFL. It's stopping the run. And, you know, even last weekend's Carolina I thought Mike Davis was very effective running the football again. He got new guys that you're trying to incorporate. In there, and I just think it's difficult and then you have a young player in in Jeff Lakota. You know, I saw the big play gave up last week. You know he sees and learning on the fly. I think he's extremely talented. I believe he's gonna be out for this game, which is unfortunate. Now you're shuffling the deck again on all levels of the defense, and it's hard to play consistently. When that happens, Jim, give me your bird's eye view. A Matthew Stafford such a lightning rod here in this city, but what you're seeing from outside, Give me your bird's eye view. I think he's ultra talented. He's thrown Fergus Ilyin yards. He has lead this franchise tow three playoff appearances. People forget that he took over an old 1 16 team. When he arrived here. I compare him to Philip Rivers. What I mean by that when Philip was out with the Chargers to me, he never had a full deck of cards. What I mean by that he'd have some receivers. The offensive line was right. D loses running back LaDainian Thomas since another, the running games lacking, But he still got Antonio Gates making all these places. I don't think Matthew Has ever had a full deck of cards. We know the running game has always been lacking here. I know I'm encouraged. When I see from DeAndre schools Swift. We know from ESPN. He may not even played today. He's unlikely what's recently being report, but I'm encouraged to see what he's doing. Still haven't gotten the offensive line settle pay. Vay Tai a ton of money Now he's been benched last week, and now he's out of the lineup, so the offensive line still isn't settled. And now you have your best play makers. Not on not on the field, and Stafford's out there trying to make a golden. You know, Golladay is a big piece to this offense, and unfortunately he's been missing the last three weeks. And it's gonna miss this week. So I just don't think Matthew Has ever had a full decade cards. Yeah, like you say, it's just been a strange year to how much does the year just 2020 pandemic this all that just hold uncertainty, teams shifting around having to postpone and re You know, how does that affect war? How can that affect the quarterback quarterback like a map to staff wrote some of these good? Yeah, I can tell you for the past couple weeks for Matthew. You play. Think about it for the listeners out there. He's not practice. He was in the cove in 19 the week prior last week, he didn't practice basically his thumb from I understand through like nine passes. When I went through that as a quarterback, that's a very unsettling feeling. It's a very uncomfortable feeling when you're going out on that field, expecting toe play without practicing and just in your play book learning the place. Certainly Matthews played a long time and I think he He made it look pretty.

Fresh "Jim Miller" from ESPN Chicago 1000 - WMVP Show
"Stretch on the last couple. It's coming. Falco and Mike North on a little bit early this week. We're with you on this Wednesday night. Could you step on a long holiday weekend? What about the Thanksgiving Games? All the other Great actions, college and pro 12 already in the NFL. It's that time. No, Mike that we talked to our buddy from Hawthorne Race course. One of the best handicappers of the country. The Galloping Jen. He's at Hawthorne, Jim on Twitter. And he is Jim Miller. Jimmy Jimmy. What's up, pal? What's up, guys have crazy holiday week. Already, Things are winding down here a little bit for the racing season. Five weeks to go, But I'll tell your mother nature still being good us. So that's a beautiful thing, and I spent some really good racing that off our knock on wood. I mean another weekend here where it's going to be nice. It looks like Friday and Saturday are gonna be great days for racing against me, and I'll tell you racist continue to fill really well, which is good because it provides a lot of value shockingly, were still on the turf course so Hopefully, the rain stopped early enough for the things to dry out to race on the grass this weekend. But there's years where you're done by November 1st. So to be considering talking about going into the first week of December for turf racing is insane. But, hey, we'll take it. It's been one of the bright lights for us for 2020. Do the horses? No, it's Thanksgiving. Do they get something like turkey or when my arm right? My dog gets more during Thanksgiving he gets because a special treat or something because it's a holiday. Or do they basically go the same way? They always do basic, eh? I'll tell you there's no holidays and horse racing Mike, but it's one of the things. It's kind of the young sung heroes for these people that handle horses during the racing season because there are no days off, there's no holidays. There's no Christmas. The horses still have to eat. The horse is still have to be taken care of, and it is made. Maybe they'll throw a couple extra peppermints in the feed bucket for them as a little dessert there, But, yeah, training takes place on Thanksgiving morning at Hawthorne. Then everybody gets a little bit of a break going into the weekend, but, yeah, that may be. It may be an extra carrots. Something like that chopped up a little bit of an apple. That wasn't a sky diver turkey. This guy Get out. Put skydiver deserve the turkey I've ever deserved whatever that horse line. That's right. That peppermint thing by the way I long, different life ago In a separate life, I dated a girl who rode horses but a question horses And the first time I ever started feeding the horse peppermint. I said, what in the world and she said, Ah, Horses love peppermint Who down those that that horses left government right, and it's crazy. It's just It's the sweetness of it, and it's the size of it. They can crunch it on their teeth and really just sit there. You kind of comfort in your hand. Put it under their mouth and all the sun. Yet these crazy sandpaper tongue sticking out just kind of sucking it in. That's what she used to do all the time. I'd say that's insane, real quick before your picks. Why is the turf racing better? Jimmy? You know you said that with us A lot to the weather has cooperated so much for those of us that the novices Why do you guys like having the horses on the turf as opposed to the dirt track? You know what you find for turf races, and it happens across the country quite a bit as a lot of people want to want to try. The horses on the turf for horses have kind of a specialty for running on the turf, so you tend to get a larger fields for one. To turf races usually get a lot more closer finishes. You don't see those runaway winners on the grass. You see things bunching up at the top of the stretch, so there's a little bit more of an excitement level for that. But then three it really comes down to the quality of racehorse. You see a lot of higher level races that are run on the grass and people if they had the choice between a bottom level, claiming race on the dirt or saying up around allowance race with the same size field on the turf course. That's kind of what they're going to gravitate to is that grass race But field size you usually tendency to say, Hey, maybe about a horse 1.5 horses per average per field on the turf compared to the dirt, So it's one of those where it is. You get 45 50 turf races in a fall compared to 20 turf races in the fall. It makes a huge difference when all said and done. Very interesting. All right. What do we like for Saturday? These air still horses for Saturday, right, Jim? Yeah, Saturday at Hawthorne, all three at Hawthorne and this is a picture. You might be able to play, too. But we're going to start in race number five with the four horse special price. But this horse across the board the horse has good early speed shortens up in distance, almost stolen racing That last out 4 to 1 in the morning line, and you'll get 4 to 1 again on that horse again on Saturday, then go to race six with the nine horse close to me. Again. But this horse across the board 4 to 12 good races over the racetrack sits just off the contested pace and then runs on late and then your horse, the single on in your gimmicks and race Number seven, but the six horse read the cliff notes on Lee to win. This is the horse That's 15 of seven starts. Over the Hawthorne main track. Excellent on the dirt, dictates the pace and should take him all the way around from gate to wire. All right. Sounds good. So the fifth races begin all of Hawthorne on Saturday, folks. The fifth race, the four horse across the board. The sixth race, the nine horse across the board and then erased 76 horse to win, right. That's right. Boys will make some money going into a big NFL Sunday, but happy Thanksgiving. Happy Thanksgiving boys take care of Jim Miller from Hawthorne. Make sure you follow him on Twitter at Hawthorne, Jim. So those are the three plays for this weekend. We've had one of the Thursday games the game. We're looking forward to most the night game pushback. Luckily, they're still planning to play that game this weekend. That's just been pushed to Sunday. Mike and I talked about the Thanksgiving Games tomorrow. Listen, watch and enjoy it. Still, football games aren't great. We know it The very least you can watch Then Duke it out in the Dumpster fire that is the NFC East for first place with just 1/4 wind. You know, If anything, I will tell you. I'll give you a little prop player like in that game, though, Mike this Antonio Gibson, the third round rookie running back out of Memphis floor. He's a good ballplayer for Washington. He look he's got a touchdown and four straight. I think his total for the game is sitting about 54 a half On Lee. The Texans have been worse this year, then stop that. Stopping the run than the Dallas Cowboys in this kid popped for almost a buck 30 against Dallas in the first meeting in Washington when the football team smoked the Cowboys, so I like his over. He's everything about 5.2 yards per carry the last four games. I think that's a good little profit. If you just wanna have something, I bet the over Brady the other night. Just find a large should you I just went like, you know, I want one unit on the game and I want light on.

"Find a job that passes the Sunday night test meaning that Sunday night is the best night of the week because. Because on Monday morning. You get to go back to work and I know. That sounds a bit corny and I know. A lot of people have jobs that they don't like. Let alone love, but if you find something where you can pass the Sunday night test and I think you're truly blessed. Check I've had that great opportunity that great blessing, multiple times in my career I know exactly what you mean that desire to get back in and make a difference and help your team. Make a difference is something that is. Possibly not unique to public service, but just the centerpiece of public service say a few words about the men and women who work for you when you are under secretary of Defense for Policy Michelle and I had the great good fortune, both to inherit eight tremendously talented policy team, and to be able to bring in about fifty additional people as political appointees from relatively young people to quite seasoned senior diplomats like Sandy. Averse Ball, who had been our ambassador to NATO and our Bassett or to Russia the team that we. We had opportunity to work with was absolutely top notch and every day I think about members of that team who made huge contributions to not just the Defense Department, but to our nation there were two people who helped me through. Confirmation Natalie Quilliam than Natalie Holly and colonel. Ross Brown army colonel. Their job was to get me prepared for confirmation and to get me through this essentially through the Senate after they did that, they became my special assistance and their commitment to public service their ability to give insight as to. What was more likely to work and not work? And their complete focus on doing the right thing and building a strong team was apparent literally from before the first day I stepped into the job as principal deputy, and was apparent in them in so many other people with whom I worked in policy ended department in throughout the government. You know I found that in so many of my colleagues, the Justice Department not everyone. There were a few people who didn't pull their weight, but overwhelmingly the men and women were drawn to that work. Work for the mission and gave more themselves than one could ever imagine I couldn't agree more. There were literally a handful of people who were either checking a box or trying to climb the career ladder. They stood out exceptions to the rule, and their peers knew they were and just worked around them as necessary. Other folks still got the job done. Your said that being Under Secretary of Defense for policy is the best job in government..

"And to advance our interests, and by hats off to all those people, my deepest gratitude to them. Leon. Panetta told me when I spoke with him that the hardest thing he ever had to do. A Secretary of defense is signed deployment orders, putting men and women in harm's way and coupled with that the personal letters he wrote to the family of a fallen soldier. That was the hardest thing he had to do. You must have seen the toll. It took on him I did I was in? Virtually all of those deployment orders meetings, and they were Sambre Fares. Secretary Panetta would ask hard questions of both. Why do we need to have a deployment there and on the other hand? Is it sufficient to provide adequate self defense for the people who are on the ground and putting their lives on the line and I happen to come in to see him a number of times when he is writing those letters. And it is. It is a part brandon. Even think about it I? Know you were very fond of Leon. Panetta and you happen to be with him on his last day as Secretary of defense. Can you talk about that sure? So? Secretary Panetta had stayed on a bit longer than he originally planned as it took longer for Secretary Hagel to be confirmed than expected, so it's finally secretary Panetta's last day. It's about an hour before he's going to walk out of the Pentagon for the last time, the Secretary of Defense and he decides he wants to take a walk around the grounds, and of course he wanted with him his companion, Bravo his wonderful golden retriever, so secretary Panetta and I. Walked with Bravo around the Pentagon grounds talked about life talked about the issues of the day. Bravo took care of some business while we were out there. And came back in and secretary. Panetta walked out of the Pentagon. There is a line of people it had to be several thousand the quarter of the earring, which is the outside ring of the Pentagon where his offices going down to the front interests, the river entrance they cheered him on, and he had a hero's departure, as well deserved for his time as secretary defense, and also for his many years of extraordinary public service. It was an amazing moment, and if you were to be in the earring of the Pentagon where the official portraits of the secretaries of Defense Hang What would you see in?.

"Why can't we come in and work? What about that Policy Initiative? What about that meeting for the secretary? What about everything? We've done to build relationships with these countries. Are. We really going to put those on hold. Just let us come in and work, and and sadly I was unable to do that because the law required that when people were furloughed. They couldn't even use their blackberry. If you remember what blackberries are? They couldn't communicate with work. They were off of work until further notice. It's got a rankle you to hear the way. The federal workforce is sometimes described given what you saw at the Pentagon and the commitment, these men and women to their country into their work. Chuck from my first job on Capitol, Hill House Armed Services Committee both tours in the Pentagon throughout my time in government. I've I've worked with people who were committed to doing the right thing for the country. Who Were Patriots. And both military and civilian personnel who are willing to literally put their lives on the line for their country. And they deserve not just to be paid. They deserve respect in our everlasting gratitude I think folks should know who are listening to this podcast that those men and women are still serving in the Department of Defense and the State Department and the Justice Department and the intelligence community throughout government people are continuing to serve, and they continue to be worthy and deserving of our strong support. Jim, during your tenure as undersecretary I wanna take you to a particular day September Eleventh, twenty twelve eleven years to the day. After the attacks of nine eleven. Where are you what happened? We'd had a moving nine eleven ceremony that morning. That afternoon I'm in Secretary Panetta's office. I'm meeting with Secretary Panetta with Chairman of the joint. Chiefs of Staff Marty Dempsey with us. AFRICOM commander Carter Ham. General Carter. Ham In my deputy assistant secretary for Africa Amanda Dory. There's a big map of Africa out on the table and we're talking about US policy towards Africa and specifically. Dealing with the terrorist threat in Africa that's where we are that afternoon of nine eleven, two thousand twelve secretary, Panetta and Marty Dempsey have a meeting with the president in about an hour, and as we're sitting around the table, Talking John Kelly Lieutenant General John Kelly, who was secretary Panetta senior military aide, who would later be dhs, secretary and Chief of staff to President Trump John Kelly Burston the room.

"I had opportunity to brief him in the Oval Office and to attempt to come to closure on the final three issues had to be resolved for us to complete the review. And what were those issues Jack in I can tell you two of them I. Guess I could tell you the third, but then I'd have to kill you as the expression goes so in that case the first. The first one was the weighty one question of what should our declaratory policy be and specifically should the president of the United States say that under no conditions. He or she would ever use nuclear weapons first, so it's called a no first use policy, and we were considering whether that should be the United States policy and not only United States policy, but publicly declared as United States. States policy indeed publicly declared and with repercussions for both how our potential adversaries and how allies few the United States commitment second topic was how to deal with China. It's only ten years ago, but at that time China was just emerging as a great power. It had a few hundred nuclear weapons compared to many thousands in Russia and so, how does one treat China in the? The review and so those two issues and a third won't talk about. We're on the table. President Obama very quietly asked the most thoughtful questions one could imagine. In fact, he asked several questions that I hadn't imagined. And it was a moment where I think exuded the utmost calm confidence, and there was a part of me. That wanted to follow the path of the cowardly lion. Lion in the wizard of Oz. If you remember that, run down the hallway and try to jump out of a window now. That wouldn't work very well. At the White House right I probably would have been shot on the way out, but if I had I made it to a window, I, would have just bounced off. Their are bulletproof meaning, also miller proof. There's no escape. It was extraordinary and I did have the thought as we talking that this is just like my oral review for my dissertation only way harder, and it's much less clear that I'm going to pass. Now I had the privilege of briefing President Obama once and I was struck by the fact that he is a remarkably good listener that he doesn't interject. He doesn't talk over other people. He's quiet. The absorbs information which takes a great dose of both humility and confidence I can remember multiple occasions in the situation room where President Obama would kick off the National Security Council meeting and would go through. Through the agenda, burn it over to others for conversation typically to the national security adviser whether it was Tom Donilon later Susan Rice in my time, and then just listen and occasionally ask a question an hour and a half would pass sometimes two hours and then president Obama say okay. I've heard the issues. Here's how I. Propose we proceed..

"But I hope that he meant it in the ladder. Sense Jack. He meant you vital. He told that to me when I had the privilege of interviewing him that you're not only one of his favourite people that he had ever worked with, but also one of the smartest and. I don't think he was making that up. Jim, well. It's mutual when you're under secretary of defense for policy. What is it that you do on a day to day basis at the Pentagon and on behalf of the Department of Defense about ten to fourteen days a month you're on the road benefit and a curse of the Under Secretary for policy is there is a plane committed to you? So you can travel overseas. Meet with counterparts, meet with the defense, ministers or deputy defense ministers for larger countries and to work on that international agenda The blessing of having your own plane available is obvious the curse was that meant that you would work the entire time on the flights in and you could. Could do classified as well as unclassified work, so that was ten to fourteen days a month, a lot of time in the situation room, and then a lot of time working within the Department of Defense, as well working with the combatant commanders with the service, chiefs and secretaries, and with others to try to implement the presidents and Secretaries Vision, and to protect national security, and say a few words about how policy is made at the very highest levels of the executive branch. Our listeners are very smart, but may not be familiar with that process. Every administration develops policy through a slightly different process, but all of them use the basic structure that was created. The National Security Act of nineteen forty seven. And that involves a National Security Council chaired by the President Beneath it. A Principals Committee chaired by the National Security Adviser, and then a deputies committee, which typically meets on a daily basis, sometimes multiple times a day to hash out policy, and below that a number of working groups with Assistant Secretary or deputy. Assistant Secretary Level folks, and the formal process sounds like it's very vertical top down and curve direction is given, and then results come back up the chain for approval. The reality is it's much more fluid than that and oftentimes people who are relatively junior and. Can make a big difference by having good ideas, but it sounds like a cumbersome process is able to move quickly if needed, the process is built to be cumbersome, but to allow thoughtful analysis to enter into big policy decisions. It can move fast. I saw it move fast for multiple military operations including going after Terrace, where there'd be a brief window open, and we need presidential approval, and it went fast in many other instances as well it can move fast, but it means basically starting at the deputies level or higher, and then getting the rest of the organizations in line, so between multiple meetings a day when you're in the Pentagon and ten to fourteen days a month on the road in the air, traveling from country to country to meet with your counterparts sounds..

"Services programs the responsibility for all of that activity was in policy so Michelle is your direct. BOSTON, when you return, Bob Gates as Secretary of Defense. Say a few words about him. Bob Gates was in is an extraordinary analysts in extraordinary leader and just an extraordinary person, I recall when I went into interview with him for the position of principal deputy undersecretary, he immediately went into a very strategic conversation about where the country was where the department was would be. He anticipated even at that time in two thousand nine that we would hit budgetary problems that what he called the river of money running underneath the Pentagon was going to dry up. And noted that wanted to take steps to prepare the people and the institution for that type of challenge. You said it was a great leader. Describe that for us, Chuck, let me try to describe his leadership style with two different levels of analysis. If you will on the First Secretary Gates had an agenda. He knew what his priorities were whether it was to bring in more capability to fight the connor insurgencies that were underway with you a vs and. And with so-called m wraps the vehicles that would protect our troops better and a second aspect of film. That tells a lot. He knew that nobody went home in the Pentagon. Until he left, he made a point to go back to his apartment virtually every day at a reasonable hour by six o'clock because he knew that everyone else would stay till he was gone, and then he worked through the evening at home. You also worked under Leon Panetta. It would be hard to find two people who seem more different on the surface than Bob. Gates Leon Panetta. Leon Panetta would give you a bear hug. Bob Gates would give you a nice firm handshake. Leon Panetta, would curse like a sailor Bob Gates was literally Top Eagle. Scout very different on the surface, exactly the same person underneath committed to doing the right thing for the country and great leaders, both of them have the highest regard for both of them and Leon. Panetta has already been a guest on the oath. He was our inaugural guest for season three, and he has in fact just an. An, absolutely lovely man, warm and kind and funny. He was very fond of you to when DPK Secretary of defense, you ascended to the position of Under Secretary for policy. Michele Flournoy had left. You inherited her job, and you were his under secretary for policy, right? That's right. Michelle had given me a heads up that secretary. Panetta was likely to ask the question in one day Jeremy Bash whom I think you chuck Jeremy Bash walks down to my office. And tells me secretary. Panetta would like to speak with you. He's going to ask you a question. The answer is yes. And, so we walked down to Secretary Panetta's office, he asked the question and I said yes, and I got one of those great bear. Hugs and it was just a great moment in Leon Panetta's book worthy fights. He writes about you and Michelle reading from his book. Flournoy and her deputy Jim Miller who would later succeed Michelle is Under Secretary for policy were two of the most critical advisors I had during my time as secretary now I don't know if he means by critical that you criticize them a lot that you were vital both Michelle and I would tell Secretary Panetta secretary gates, and any others exactly what we thought..

It's enormous, the Pentagon itself is essentially a small city. Now my staff had only a handful of people working on were plan review, but that combatant commanders what we used to call the sinks, commanders in Chief, had large staffs that would develop more plans under the broad direction provided by the president and the Secretary of Defense. Defense Team's job was to review those plans, not just for whether they met the specific guidance, but whether they made sense, and whether there were appropriate decision points in them for the Secretary of Defense and the president to manage the conflict, and to be prepared to give direction at key points. Did you like the work? It was incredible work, and it was the first time that I've been not just part of a team, but led a team, and this was a team of incredibly talented civilian and military officials, including military officers who went on to be admirals and generals and including civilians who went on to be deputy assistant secretaries of defense.

Hundred Eighty eight the cold war is still in a sense raging, but we're already seen signs that the Soviet Union has a chance to either reform or to fall apart. The stakes are incredibly high and to come into government service at that point in time with huge debates on missile, defense and new ICBM's what US policy toward the Soviet. Union should be was just an incredible experience and to work with not just Aspen, but other committee members and great senators like Sam Nunn was just an. Experience did they work in a bipartisan fashion? For the most part it was bipartisan, but you have to understand that there were strong views on the far left in on the right in the middle could be treacherous. Les Aspen actually lost his chairmanship because of votes on Amex missile and the contras at one point in time, and is that why you left the hill? No, no, after four years on the hill at had just most amazing. Amazing experiences in greatest learning opportunities one can imagine had the greatest respect for my colleagues on both Democratic and Republican side of the aisle, but it was time to move on. We had a one and a half year old, our oldest daughter Allison, who had been quite sick and gave a bit of a scare. We thought thought she might be taken and just decided. We needed to rebalance our lives. And how did you do that well? Sorry I'm just thinking. I'm thinking about allison getting a little bit emotional. But she's fine now. She's fine, she's.

"Stanford you had a number of wonderful. Wonderful professors, but one in particular with whom you were very very close. Yes Jessica had tremendous professors and at the top of that list was Lincoln Moses and Lincoln Moses looked the part. If you can visualize Abraham Lincoln and Moses melded together into a white haired, bearded individual with flowing locks that was Lincoln Moses professor of statistics in I happened to be taking A. A course with him in my final quarter at Stanford and his course on quantitative methods, and their application of public policy was an inspiration, and so instead of going to a Wall Street job, which I plan to do I started summer school in statistics, something that most of my friends and family thought was pretty close to insane. Why first of all to Graduate Stanford? Stanford and then start summer school. Instead of starting job seem kind of odd and secondly to do that in statistics, which too many seems like could field of drudgery if you will see particularly unusual and friend and a professor and a mentor to for many years until he passed away in two thousand and seven. That is exactly right. Lincoln was a quaker meeting that. He believed in nonviolence and when I went into national security. He didn't so much as raise an eyebrow or ask a question except what can I do to help? Jim Sounds like you're lucky to have somebody like that at your side at Sanford. Yes, indeed very fortunate could play tennis. He? Thought it was great that I played tennis. There were a couple of times when I missed midterms, because we were on the road and I may have forgotten to tell him about that, but he was kind enough to let me make it back up, and in one case I put all my chips on the final after having missed two midterms while we were traveling around, and and shockingly probably to both of us as the final. Good News. What did you want to do with that I mean? Where did it lead you? You mentioned you had thought about Business School I. Believe you thought about law school, but you didn't do any of those things. You ended up following a public policy path. What is that and why? When I interviewed for JOBS ON WALL STREET IN FOR CONSULTING JOBS? I found them mildly interesting, but not at all inspiring in I was. was struggling with what I wanted to do next after graduating and how it could possibly not just have an interesting job, but have a meaningful job and this course with Lincoln Moses really inspired me and inspired me to want to learn more about the field of quantitative methods, and to look to apply them to public policy into try to make a difference in the world and so Lincoln Moses sort of handed you off to. Have, I oversimplified it. That's exactly right. I was a course or two away from my masters in statistics, and the choice was PhD in statistics or to public policy for the masters, and ultimately the PhD and Lincoln pointed out that HD in statistics was equivalent to a PhD in math, and we agreed that I could probably accomplish that, but it wasn't my forte, so we thought we'd take a chance and focus on the policy side so Lincoln.

"I got to the finals of the State High School Championships my senior year and lost to a person. person who became a great friend? John Staffer John Played Number one for Duke for most of his time there on scholarship, and he beat me badly from West Waterloo high school you end up at Stanford University a long way from home. How did that happen? Were you good student in high school I was a fairly good student. I think my classmates were probably surprised as I was when I was admitted to Stanford and Chuck My assessment was that I must have been admitted to Stanford because they thought it was. was really funny that someone would try to play tennis in Iowa and so they want to see what that person looked like up-close. Did you like it there a loved? It was completely different, obviously from anything I'd experienced the furthest I had traveled before then was down to Oklahoma to play a tennis tournament. I'd never seen California, had no idea what a beautiful campus Stanford had, and I had no real idea how to study, and so I had a little bit of work to catch up on for my first quarter. Quarter there my first year and to be clear. You weren't recruited to play tennis there and for folks who don't know about Stanford in its legacy in tennis. It is one of the best programs in the nation. Chuck the tennis team. That year was probably the best team in the history of college tennis. In for my freshman year Johnny, mack was coming in as a freshman. He played number one John McEnroe John McEnroe. A guy named Matt Mitchell had won the NC two A. Championships in singles the year before. More and he came back as a junior, and he was fighting to play number two and Peter Rennert who won the national championship in singles two years later was hanging on by his fingernails to play number five or six, so a very tough team. I walked on I. Won The tryouts and coach school told me well done. Jim But we're not taking anybody this year. And so you try that again the next year I tried again the next year. I can be a slow learner, sometimes or stubborn or stubborn. I'm definitely stubborn. There's no doubt about it when the tryouts again the next year and this time co school put me on the team and. And when I got to play with some of the top players, I realized it was possible he had been right the first year that you didn't belong that I was competing above my level. These guys were terrific players. Did you play McEnroe? I never did John was in my freshman dorm. We played intramural sports together coach school high. Think never knew that or would have been quite unhappy, but we played intramural football and soccer and basketball. Your coach didn't want the best tennis player in the United States and by that I mean John McEnroe not Jim Miller to be playing intramural football. That is exactly right, and John didn't really care or if he. John was going to do his own thing, but you made the team I did, and it was a it was a great moment, and a moment where I realized that behind on schedule I had hoped to meet by making the team my first year, starting my second year, and so on that I had a shot, and it really was extraordinary and deeply appreciative. Dakota Gould for making that choice. Was He a mentor to him? He was a mentor and he remains a good friend. Friend. We were doing zoom with a number of our teammates just a couple of nights ago, so we've stayed in close touch, you end up on a Stanford team that wins the national championship I think you want showed me that you have a national championship. Watch Stanford. Men's tennis is one more championships than any other men's tennis team, and than most other schools in any sport..

"That's when the busing program started consistent with when it started nationally as well and there was just a lot of subtle racism, I could see it I went to school with some incredibly talented African Americans. I saw they lived. Some were basketball team. Mates somewhere classmates, two of my classmates African. American classmates went on to play pro football. They in most of the others were tremendous successes. They had a much harder path than I had, and it was evident from sixth grade on at that was the case I was very fortunate and I could see directly in the struggles that they had in the subtle and sometimes unsettled racism that they faced that they had a much harder path I didn't. How did it manifest? Itself Jim suttle pieces would come when there were unreasonable expectations whether on the basketball quarter in the classroom of my African American colleagues. Sometimes those expectations were inappropriately low. Low, in sometimes inappropriately high, and that's the sort of a subtle racism. If you vote that I saw, but treating my black friends and classmates differently than most whites treated, this was not something every teacher dead, but something that a good number of them did as well and sometimes there was more explicit racism when the schools were integrated. When I was in sixth grade, there was a knifing at the squire, ultimately went to West High School, and there were kids who had been brought up as racist, and there's no doubt that that was real. Real it faded over time, and it got pushed into the background. Talk a little bit about your mom and Dad. My mom was a full time. Homemaker is one might imagine with five kids and let me say. My sisters were two three and four years older than I am. My younger sister's four years younger so five kids within roughly ten years, and she's devoted her life to raising us in raising US right, my dad was an insurance agent was a great dad, and he set high expectations for everybody then took no golf from anybody. Anybody Jim you were a very good high school athlete, but you also good college athletes. What's interesting to me? Is that the sport in which you ultimately excelled? Tennis is not something you would expect from an island, perhaps and certainly not something that you would pick up at the age of thirteen as you did well chuck a quick story about that. John was a tennis pro at my parents country club. Who saw me going by the summer to go play golf? He bet me that if he could win a round of eighteen holes. Then I would take tennis lessons from him. If I could win that round, I would get a free soda every day when I came out to play golf. Course it was a total setup. He was a scratch Golfer. He crushed me. Therefore took tennis lessons starting at age thirteen and got pretty good, didn't you Jim I had the opportunity to play first at the local level than state than regionally nationally. Before I went to college I was just good enough not to be recruited by anybody including University of Iowa but good enough to be ranked number two in your state..

Well. I think a couple of them would say I was treated more than okay. Period of time went by the moniker King James with a couple of my sisters. I felt that that was a little overstated. Prince probably would have been more appropriate. You said growing up in Waterloo was idyllic, but there were quite literally two sides of the river, the west side, in which he lived in the east side, which was primarily African American, talk a little bit about the two sides of the river.

"jim miller" Discussed on The Dan Patrick Show
"Who could probably who probably have world class speed world class speed now. It is the SEC. But you've got three guys. Chances are somebody's probably wide open. Lsu had the best group of wide receivers. I've seen in a long time. Chances are they were probably wide open quite a few times. That's what's hard to you know you're trying to understand. This process this with these quarterbacks and say is he really good. Jordan love Utah State seemed undermanned but as my source said he got he wilted in big games but people love him. Because they haven't seen all of it. I Joe Borough. Nobody's doing. Oh Joe Boroughs going to be an unbelievable. He's going to be spectacular. Like we're done with Joe Borough already got to the NFL. It's Pan that just in Herbert's got some intangibles Jordan. Love boy that Guy. Watch out for him. It's what we don't know what we do know and boring. I'm GonNa talk about what we don't know yet. I don't credit but someone posted on twitter. You know Jordan. Love led the nation and interceptions a natural replacement for Jameis Winston at the pay. Yeah mean-spirited best and worst of the weekend. We'll get your phone calls. Is well once again. Jim Miller? Who wrote the book on? Espn also Saturday night. Live is Dialed in when it comes to the TV business. Get his thoughts on Tony. Romo for seventeen million dollars. I don't I don't begrudge it. I mean if. Cbs wants to pain that great. Good for toning and their reasons that they paid for paid that for. Tony Romo this is a TV show you WANNA keep a TV? Show intact you got. Right's fees you got a new contract. The new collective new TV deal coming up. You WanNA keep him there if ll cool. J. Said Hey I want X. number of dollars on the show that he's on would anybody Chris O'Donnell says that I don't know what CBS shows. There are but you know Jim. Parsons Jim Parsons made one hundred million dollars on the last deal and Big Bang theory. Did anybody go? Man Must be great to be an actor who works. You know thirty minutes well week. Course I said that too could kind. You're getting one hundred million dollars. Nobody nobody complains about that all. Tony Got Michael. Thomas saying. That's why we shouldn't sign the new collective BARGAINING AGREEMENT NO WAY. The announcer should be making more than ninety percent of the players. Michael Stupid tweet. Did Anybody Complain About John. Madden when John Madden was making eight or nine million dollars a year and he might have been the highest paid guy in football back then. Because you didn't have quarterbacks making that kind of money John Madden was making the most money probably of any broadcaster in anybody on the field. Odell Beckham Junior. I'm done playing football. I just want to be an announcer. Now that's Odell Beckham Junior. Is that a promise. Good luck with that it. This shouldn't even be brought into the conversation that he's getting seventeen. Well therefore we deserve more. You guys are interchangeable. Odell Beckham leaves. Somebody else comes in Michael Thomas. When he's done somebody comes in Tony. Romo is signed up for ten years. How many super bowls with that? How many of the top shows on CBS? Where the Games that Romo did with gymnasts? That's all you're doing you're keeping a TV show intact and it's a TV show. It's not a football game. How much do you think the spillover will be on other players to retire a year earliest retire later when they see road? I know other guys made a lot of money. But this is astronomical like A. Jj Watt with the injury says why not but when I tap out a year earlier than that but you gotta be good will but we never thought Romo skimpy remember when he said he's one of the booth like him well. Somebody knew it because I think Philip rivers will be a very good analyst as well. I think he could be the next. Romo where you go. Wow I did not expect this if he would wanna do that. Quarterback seemed to be at an advantage in that role though because they have to sort of read the field and they could say this is what this guy is looking at. This is where he's going to. He's going to pass it over here because he's got this coverage whereas a lot of other position players can't do that well. That's why I wondered about why you know if you play for the cowboys. America's team you're going to get a lot of opportunities. Jason witten got the opportunity because he played for the campus if he played for the browns. Bengals rams no one would care but he played for the cowboys and ESPN thinking. Hey Troy Aikman stone great Tony Romo stonegate. Great let's bring in our Cowboy Moose. Johnston's doing great Emmett Smith not doing great broadcasting wise. But you bring in. Whitney wasn't ready for that because Witton is a guy who waits to get a ball. The guy who throws the ball sees everything so whitten waited. He would wait when he broadcast. You got to be proactive. And Jason wasn't wired that way drew brees to me could be great now. I think Peyton would be the best. And I you know Collins Worth and troy like they're all great but Payton if you watch you know Payton's place he's got it all. You've got a sense of humor he's sharp. He's got respect and his ability to pre call like we think Romo's good peyton invented it. Payton is the one who went to the line of scrimmage and goes You guys are blitz and over here okay. He can almost tell the defense what they were doing. But that was the brilliance of him and I think Peyton if they want to offer him twenty. Peyton will do it but you know twenty million dollars to do that. That's pretty good but questions does Payton. WanNa do that Tony Romo good for him. You know he's done well and he did something different that nobody else had done. I just want to know when that phone call from Chris Collins Worth agent goes to mark Lazarus NBC or. Do you just send it like a screen cap. You know with just Romo signs for seventeen million and then you send it that way. Well Collins picks up his twentieth sports emmy or Troy. Aikman sends a little note. Their best cowboy quarterback as quarterback and broadcaster is still me. Yes Paul. How Much Do you think Jim? Nance is loving this that it it the team because Jim Nance in the you know the latter half of his career. He's doing fantastic but he gets his prime time this partnership together and he gets to have the focal point for the second half of his career. But also I'M GONNA guess his price tag just went up to I. Don't I don't know gyms contract? But he's probably saying in on making ten. Don't making seventeen. I Dunno I do golf. I do a lot of things for you. How about we split the difference in you can be fourteen million gyms on vacation by the way we did. Where does where does he vacate vacation home? They've got a place like that where you go at Pebble Beach Vacations in home's backyard. Where I WANNA go on vacation. I want to go to his house on vacation. We'll take a break..
