"Buffalo, added Steve Tasker, who has been all over the field and unique. He was kind of a dual role player. Have a little saved a blimp. We're not even in the stratosphere of normalcy. Our number two of one bills live Chris Brown, Steve Tasker with you and joining us on the line right now is a man who will be part of a seven member. Hall of Fame induction class for the Canadian Football Hall of Fame. It is a guy who was already a member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame and is now going to be one of just three people on the planet. Be in both of those respective halls of fame. It is former bills coach Marv Levy. Joining us on the line, Marva first and foremost, Congratulations. You know, you've been down this road before with a different Hall of Fame. How does it feel to be part of two Football Hall of Fame is on both sides of the border. I've absolutely overwhelmed that tell you the truth. I got the call. Not too long ago that it was happening. The current president of the Montreal Allah wets. Think push for his quite a bit and I'm just blown away. Honored to be inducted. Actually, I only coach in Montreal for five years. You went to the Great Cup game three of those five and 12 of them. On bond. I had a wonderful owner and the fan base was magnificent back then, uh and I'm really blown away out of the only other coach that's been in both. Um, there is, uh, the Minnesota Vikings. But Grant and Warren Moon as a player, so I'm very honored. More of you. You said what? What was the When you took over the Montreal Allah wits. What years was that? Were that and what kind of shape was that franchise in? Why were they looking to make a change to head coach and Give us a little insight is to that situation when you landed in Montreal. Well, it was the year there was 1973 the year before, had been an assistant coach with the Washington Redskins. We went to the Super Bowl lost to the undefeated Miami Dolphins in that Super Bowl game. 14 7, a close one. But for many years when I was coaching, is an assistant in the NFL assistants of George Allen, there was a a scout in the den. Eventually that general manager Of the Montreal Alouettes named Jay I. Albrecht used to come around. We got to know each other. We had good relations. And apparently when the head job opened there, he went to the owner, Mr Sam Birger and pushed for May. They interviewed May It sounded great to be a head coach and professional football. Montreal is a very intriguing town, very intriguing city, the multi culture of English and French background. And so I went up there, but they played in an old worn out stadium. I forget the name of it. Uh And you could you could hardly park. They're the winners were miserable. Then all of a sudden the Olympic Games were there. They build a huge stadium. Uh, the Olympic Stadium. We went there. 68,000 people came to the games. And our teams took off from there are owners Sam Burger, Hey, went all out my first year there and he gave a contract that's never before and never since in the Canadian League to that year's Heisman Trophy winner, Johnny Rodgers. And Johnny was a great player. Although we had a lot of emotional problems back then since they've been solved, and then you know more of I'm curious because you know you're Your roots are obviously in American football. How much How much apprehension did you have going? I mean, building teams and mental toughness and team unity that that's a common theme through any sport. And those those things translate, but was what level of apprehension did you have in becoming a head coach of a Canadian team, whereas we know the field is a different size. The rules are different. What? What level of apprehension did you have with that part of the new job? Well, actually, it wasn't apprehension. It was some self doubt. So there's so much to learn, Uh, the size of the Canadian feel the end zones were 20 yards deep. They were wider. The square yards of a Canadian field is more than twice the square yardage of what's in the U. S, Uh, The rule. There's a lot of rules differences. They have only three downs. People can be in motion towards the line of scrimmage. More than one man can be in motion. On a kick that goes into the end zone. That's not a field going is a one point ER, um there were so many differences, but I went up with this belief and thank goodness I believe it was right. The same things one If you run, throw block, tackle catch kick. Better than your opponent. You're gonna win since fundamentals, fundamentals, fundamentals, and Steve may know the focus we had on fundamentals. It's hard work. It's labor in the hot sun during training camp, I had Bruce Smith coming into me my office one day up and training camp. Hottest can be with the buffalo bills and say, Hey, coach, I have a question for l. Yeah. Bruce, what is it? Who put the fun in fundamentals? Yeah, Never hard work. That's right. Mark you You started your career and coaching a long time ago. You told us a story. I remember in a team meeting one time and Chris Did an article on eight years ago for the Buffalo Bills when you started you told us that you would, you know, save some money and you want their coaching clinics all over the country, and you happen to be able T to attend one Where the final speaker of the of the camp on the seminar was going be from Bear Bryant.

"We really do appreciate you. I just finished giving out. I'll sort of my state of the union on the los angeles rams again. Nobody's really talking about this matt. Stafford move anymore. I understand that it's old news once. Focus on free agency and the draft. Where's the shawn watson going potentially russell wilson and all that stuff but i get matthew stafford was the only move. In my opinion. That has been made this offseason. That made a good team a great team. I think the only team that can really compete with the tampa bay buccaneers at that nfc championship level. And again if we get matthew stafford a little combination of two thousand eleven matthew stafford. I know that's many many years ago. But if we can get sort of two thousand eleven matthew stafford with a turnover sort of mind of twenty twenty. Matthew stafford were hewlett through ten receptions that would be ideal for the city of los angeles. The play action game is an underrated factor with this rams team and really with the entire matthew. Stafford situation overall. He's never been able to have a full top five play action game top five run game in the nfl and again guys like brady brees. Feast off those great run games. Splashing games garoppolo golf with the rams for a couple of years. I want to transition now to the other team i was talking about. And that is the green bay packers again. They were the team that has now respect back. Nfc championship game and they have not one either. And here is the issue with the green bay packers. They refused to go all in on their hall of fame quarterback aaron rodgers just got paid his signing bonus. Outside the mona's excuse me sort of a roster bonus for just being on the roster this point again they could have converted it like many people have been doing recently. Nfl to a signing bonus and lowered the captioning immensely but instead the green bay packers decided to lead the contract as it is which really means that they're okay with their current position with aaron rodgers because it sounds like a-rod isn't in their future plans that's again there's no reporting on that. There's no information on that. But when a guy when there's an opportunity to lower your quarterbacks cap hit in the future right in the in the present to make it a higher cabinet in the future right so the idea behind it would be get aaron rodgers. You sit him down you restructure his contracts you give him a ton of money up front sort of on a signing bonus and he has essentially a minimal hit this year twenty twenty but is a major major capital in the next couple of years. The atlanta falcons. Just did it with matt ryan. I think the tampa. Bay buccaneers sort of did a version of this patrick mahomes and the chiefs just did this. But instead the green bay packers are totally contend with johnny rodgers being a cap hit now and being a non cap hit or non-cap issue in the future. And that's because these probably not in their plans and it's been rumored that he wants to react on a new contract and they did bring back. Aaron jones they're running back. They still refuse to do what you know. These elite teams are doing which is going all the rams past couple of years every single you see them all in making big trades adding new players adding jalen ramsey extending aaron donald trading for matthew stafford couple years ago adding the consumer going all in adding keep to leave and things like that. They've gone all in each. And every year the saints last year just went all injuries in his file year the tim. Bay buccaneers last year went all in on tom. Brady are continuing to go all in and this year the green bay packers have never gone all in on aaron rodgers not even when they drafted and they let him sit for three years behind brett farve. Now i want to bring you an interesting statistic here when the green bay packers have actually been in this exact situation before and it's how aaron rodgers came into the league. Brett farve was six months. Older than aaron rodgers is currently was off his thirteen and three seasons. Where the green bay packers get. This went to the nfc championship game. And they moved off of him for a kid. From cal who went to go aaron rodgers. Things worked pretty out so far. I'm not saying jordan. Love is aaron rodgers. in fact i would bet that he's not aaron rodgers at all but the green bay packers have been in the situation before this ownership group has been in this situation before and they might view joran along the same way. They viewed aaron rodgers years and years ago. So there are totally content with non extending him not re upping his contract. Keeping capsulize flexibility in the future. Green bay is almost always been developmental organization. You've never seen green bay go online and pay for these free agents and go after guys who were successful for other teams. They're a home grown organization. You see aaron jones. The guys they do bring back our guys that have argument homegrown talents guys. They got out of college in the middle rounds who have worked their ass off and grind. It's the level of and even then they've got aaron jones for cheaper than he would've wanted. If aaron jones had really stayed true price of fifty million dollars. He could take an offer from the jets or the miami dolphins and mean a lot more money but he wanted to play green bay and the issue with green. Bay's everyone on the roster to monthly atoms. Aaron jones taking less money seems to be all in on aaron rodgers. The only people who aren't all in on aaron rodgers is green bay again. Some of this is aaron rodgers fault. You can't put all the blame on green bay for not getting to a super bowl. Aaron rodgers threw to run the ball and that last plane the nfc championship game. And maybe scored a touchdown. We all agreed upon that. But also when you look at the elite quarterbacks in this league it's specifically guy he's been chasing his entire career. The goat tom brady. Brady's been taking pay cuts each and every year making his cap hit less sacrificing for his teammates can get all these guys. He's even doing it now at age. Forty three so they can bring in check. Bear resigned him. Re-sign levante david re-signed adama consume re-sign rob gronkowski. Resigned chris. godwin. When is a story like that aaron rodgers. When did aaron rodgers sacrifice some money so davante adams got paid so aaron jones got paid so they can get that stud safety might be a little passes prime thinking overpay for a corner so they can reach for linebacker so they can take some risks. Green bay has never ever taken risk. The the last risk that green bay took was giving aaron rodgers the ball over brett farve. And even then you. Isn't that much of a risk. When you see the guy in practice and you see how good erin is. They had to have known okay. This kid is special. People like shelvin sharp have as the greatest arm talent to ever walk the face of a football field again so they had to have seen something right to give him the ball of course over brett farve risk. They took they haven't gone all in on him since two thousand eleven when they won the super bowl since then it's been nonsense. Two two playoff games get knocked out. Aaron rodgers has barely above five hundred record and the playoffs. And if you exclude the super bowl run. He has a losing record in the playoffs. He's now lost back-to-back nfc championship games. And i don't even think he's gonna get there this year so my question always remains the same for green bay and both aaron. What are you going to make this work. This seems like a divorce that is waiting to happen. This seems like a failing marriage each and every year we have this conversation. The green bay packers. This isn't a new topic of discussion on sports. Shows like ours or anybody others or any of the other ones that you guys probably listen to. Aaron rodgers has always taken the max amount of money from the green bay packers and has always been a maximum campaign and the green bay. Packers have never taken any risks into getting those free agents for aaron. Rhonda's both can be true..

"johnny rodgers" Discussed on KFAB's Morning News with Gary Sadlemyer
"Jim Rose is here. just under twenty four hours ago. the news broke that the Greg Gale Sayers has passed. At Age, seventy seven and man and I posted up a GMO no you posted highlights on your page. KABC DOT COM I posted up that video. Of the longest run from scrimmage ever given up by Nebraska defense. and. That was that was gale sayers. You can see that and Johnny Rodgers one of a long line of amazingly talented athletes out of North Omaha. And a friend of gale sayers joins us for a few minutes Johnny. Good Morning. Doing, gearing I'm well, thanks for coming on walk. Player. What is what? What is his legacy Johnny in in your mind? Not only as an athlete and the football. Great. But as as a leader and as a as a role model to a lot of kids in Oman. I think you know him. Getting the attention that he that he's getting. He might like some of us get more attention than dead and he did alive but he's a true example of to excellence Of his whole demeanor, he was a quiet type of guy he was very disciplined. in gales running style was not like I've seen a lot of guys in the pros run Herschel Walker Jimmy Brown and they all great runners and they we're done great. But Gail had style was like He didn't he didn't. You could. He could see but he's he felt he was feeling. you you. You know you. You feel people you don't see them but you can. You can. You can feel them and you can see right in the middle of Stri to the right he could go to the left. and vice versa he had some guy giving talents. He was able to develop and took them all the way up to where we just call them. Instincts. Johnny Jim had that audio yesterday actually have gale talking about that. and I assume you can relate to that. Yeah. You're the only other guy that ever had a style that Georgina before his knee injuries ran like that Roger Craig little. But the closest thing if you look at NFL films and compare him to your film Johnny, those are the two comparable styles. Did you get anything from Sayers or did you is that instinct for you to? I, think at the instinct for me I I can see similarities in are running. But because we ran recklessly and with without knowing, we could feel I remember several times apartment turns that. Corner and I I could see later down on my film that I had took a dip in brook one way or the other, and there was somebody there that I can feel more so than see and So it wasn't if you had to think about something, it was almost too late you could feel it in this. Make that move her early instinctively right in. Right in the middle of one move, you could make a move So it'd be up to moves in one and it wasn't something that you had to try to do it. Just something that you just did Sayers was like, do you think although you didn't never had major injury at Nebraska ear injuries came in the pros do you think that running style lent itself to knee injuries? I think playing football to self injuries. Dot Not necessarily the style because I I don't know how guilty knee Andrew came about but mine came by one of my teammates in practice a stepped on my toe in crack my kneecap. So it was out of all the guys that I was able to elude to keep from getting injured it just happen when I really wasn't on top of it in practice from one of my own. Teammates, but it was a knee injury dislike. A A a knee injury as well and but I don't think that necessarily that because we're not we're we're not running against ourselves. We running with ourselves. So I think that we have more. You know in my case, I had more opportunity not to be injured because I was fluid and. was stuck in the ground then if I if I really couldn't move as well. I'm wondering about what I'm guessing right around eight to ten years behind Gail. Johnny when you grow up La. How big of a deal was gale Sayers as a high school player everybody away. went to the pros for. The bear. It was really a big deal because a lot of the guys that were trying to go to the next level could see and visualize somebody that went to the next level and he was right there. He wasn't from New York or Los Angeles. He was from Omaha Nebraska. And Chicago, really wasn't that far from US either. So we did have opportune. A lot of people were talking all the time about the GAL success because there was a whole group of guys that used to play coons park and he was one of the guys who grew up at Kuhn's park to playing all the way through and So we had our tinted on him and and the whole thing is if you could see it, you could be it. So am taking a playing like that and and being having to TV everybody would be sure your family watch the game. When Gale Sayers saw. engaged. Was Sayers Omaha later in life. Well. I think Rodney we'd and Charlie Washington and those guys Kinda kept him engaged I. Remember several different years. He would give golf tournament. To help the Wesley House to raise money because he and Rodney we think Rodney was one of his mentors. As well as mine and Charlie Washington was as well. So he had other community leaders that he was attached to that. Actually we kept him grounded in the community but him he was really a Nice Guy and Roger Sarah's brother is you know followed that same lead he's still involved with a lot of different things here in the community and bread stab and very well respected, right? Johnny thanks sorry for the loss of your friend and and marijuana legacy of appreciate your time this morning. Well, thank you and everybody here. Really appreciate him. I think Gill we'll go down is probably the best running back Ever really came out in Nebraska and probably one of the best friend, the top two or three that ever played. NFL. Doubt thanks Johnny Johnny Rodgers. AP's Morning News..
"johnny rodgers" Discussed on Championship Drive
"Five heisman winner so especially now l. and they need an experienced administrator by all accounts and there are plenty out there that would love the opportunity to take on the mantle of USC because as you point out it's a big program with a lot of resources a tradition of success a fan base in alumni base that just can't write enough checks. and you know there's a lot to like about that tale. USC is rare in intercollegiate athletics because it is in a major metropolitan area and yet it is is thriving as an athletic department if you look at so many schools and programs that are in NFL cities they struggle struggle for oxygen because the NFL and the other pro sports eat up a lot of dollars advertising dollars and time fans ads but USC has that fan base in La so it's a great opportunity and I'm in you nailed it there when you're talking about the NFL and you talk about cities it is the only it it is the only college football program that can be represented as a pro football program in that city considering that they didn't have football in the NFL L. in La for over a decade and no one cared no one cared about it because they had usc no matter what and and and you've you've cover that team in the Pete Carroll Years Matt Liner and Reggie Bush they were superstars they were NFL stars in that town they really were and you can have a long and interesting debate about whether that contributed to US's downfall and the because they clearly they the program was at Rockstar caliber a decade okay to go. It was really you know not that long ago. Well you say a decades not that long ago athletic turns. It's a very long time I mean. USC A C has one sense sense Vince Young scored with one thousand nine seconds to play. They you know they they haven't sniff the national championship haven't played for a national championship and that was fourteen years ago and since p Carroll left a decade ago they've won one as a one PAC twelve title so things have changed and they need football to get out and be the tip of the spirit of them and they also need a new narrative considering also and I mentioned you know the scandal surrounding. USC BACK in March we cannot forget the multiple double coaches and a USC senior associate ad were arrested for roles in that massive college admissions bribery scandal which rocked everybody in the Spring Ring and a coach and an administrator already admitted they took bribes to get students in the school and they've pled guilty to racketeering conspiracy charges this school and and this athletic department needs a new direction and and and it's going to be a key higher here going forward especially to now you know with with Klay Hilton and it's funny a week ago and I joke with Herbie about this we were trying to pronounce that the quarterback's name the true freshman quarterback and now by the end of the week everybody's chanting. MVP MVP Keaton slow after what he did against Stanford in the second half and clay and there's is now suddenly an opening here after you saw what happened to Washington this past weekend and two weeks ago to Oregon and now suddenly you're like okay USC to know. What do we have got Byu this coming weekend they got a brutal stretch in the next five weeks but I mean Klay can finally turn things around with this young man slow vis and there is an opening for se football the ball something that you talked about on your podcast where we've seen that drop off over the last thirteen years after Vince young scored that touchdown in the Rose Bowl and and after Pete left the the coaching hires and maybe given it given jobs to coaches that were not ready for the spotlight of this e in the decision making all the way at the top up well sure lane kiffin and Steve Sarkisian p Carroll's right-hand men on on on the offense young guys that he gave gavea opportunity to and then he left and USC hired first Kiffin and then Sark and neither one of them was ready for that job Bob and they flamed out Clay Hilton is the antithesis of Giffen in Sark? He's grounded guy. He's quiet quiet and he's dogged determined but you haven't won very much. You had a great season where they won the PAC twelve and then they've you know fell off the face of the earth and so now as you point out you know one week really one incredible half and that's the beauty of football in early September and your your emotions just whip saw but who would have thought thought because I certainly didn't that we'd be mid-september and Clay Helton would look like the stable in the bigger right exactly with with it an eighteen year old quarterback right who who's a true freshman that enrolled early in January. I I love the story line and to me it's a fascinating thing and and and I think you'd agree especially when listening to your down in distance podcasts this past week I think you would agree college football's great when the blue bloods play a big role and USC's one of the blue bloods when USC's relevant liked the Notre Dame's and the Alabama's the Oklahoma's and the Penn state's it's great for college football well it is and it's been that way throughout the history of the game the USC has been very good for a very long time and you know we we saw that with the debut the of our one hundred fifty greatest teams this week doc you had two of the top four spots. There is an incredible legacy there and we all recognize when those schools that you just listed listed those programs when they're good people flock to their televisions and and let's it's a great segue so thank you for that and we had David pollock on earlier on the podcast to get his opinions about this one hundred fifty greatest college football single season teams of all time released by ESPN earlier this week panel of one hundred and fifty media members athletic administrators former players and coaches and there were two hundred ten finalists initially identified by ESPN stats and Info group by the way maybe the most underrated group here ESPN. They're the backbone of everything we do you don't see their faces but you certainly understand what they're saying because we are processing their content on the air you brought up. USC and at two thousand four USC team a head coach Pete Carroll was the number to the number. One team is the nineteen seventy-one Nebraska team featuring Johnny Rodgers. What was the process like in determining you know the I? Let's just go top ten here the top ten in narrowing everything down well with the way rather than have everybody ranked teams from one to one fifty because that would just make individually because just make your head hurt yup we created a the the A computer program where would randomly match one team against the other of these two hundred ten candidates and our voters one hundred fifty voters all signed in voted and you might get one thousand nine hundred seventy one Nebraska verses verses two thousand Eighteen Clinton. You might get eighteen eighty eight Yale versus nine thousand nine hundred forty six Notre Dame and you have to decide died by your own criteria we didn't want to we didn't want to legislate too much. which was the greater team now? Obviously team of the Modern Day could lineup under the modern rules and and easily beat one of those old teams and it could could they could they beat them under their rules. Do you want to look at it that way. Do you want to look at it. As simply was the margin of separation of that eight hundred eighty eight Yale team and everybody else greater than the two thousand eighteen team you know. Did you just look at them. Within their own sphere we let everybody decide that it on their own and we got thousands and thousands of votes which each team would come up for a vote on a computer screen gene and that was either a one or a loss and after that it was just who had the best winning percentage fascinating. I I do like that over a list of hey let us write down one through one hundred fifty and if you did that I'd say they're not paying you enough. I've been to sort all of that but to me. It's also so what's fresh our minds because I thought that two thousand Eighteen Clemson team which comes in rank fifth is is a little overrated I if that's possible when looking at a top ten list of all time teams considering that that two thousand five Texas team is six and to me a the top three team of all time is that two thousand one Miami team what Larry Coker built or I should say Butch Davis built and Larry Coker made sure to see the finish which what thirty eight players on that roster were drafted by the NFL and seventeen first round picks. It was so ridiculous how good good that two thousand one team isn't and of course I'm biased because I'm only forty four so I can't tell you about seventy nine Alabama team with pair Brian because I was four years old but to me it's just seeing two thousand eighteen Clinton at five two spots ahead of two thousand one Miami I found that fascinating well I was worried about recency bias lettuce and that was really worried so the fact that we had a team from nineteen seventy-one come in first and that went okay. These people are paying attention. You know it's not just the last thing that came across their nose and I think there was some of that with Clinton being number five but on the other hand nobody in major college football he'd been fifteen since the one thousand nine hundred eighty s fair point so yeah and I think that I think that appealed to the voters and I would say the fact that what they did in the playoffs beating Notre Dame and Alabama the way they beat them. Each by four touchdowns probably left a mark on the voters as well. You're kind of winning winning me over especially how they dominated Alabama and how we viewed Alabama Bama a year ago at this time and what tool was doing and and we're talking about this could be an all time great team here in how they dismantled them in San Francisco at at least in the bay area. I've and it was great. I love having you on this podcast here with us every single Wednesday and don't forget to download Ivan's podcast which is fantastic aspect down and distance podcast before we let you go.

One is the nineteen fifty nine Oklahoma Team and how they were you know that was the dynasty that at one point one forty seven straight games and they all came a cropper oppor in a Chicago nightclub in one thousand nine hundred fifty nine and the culprit was fruit salad and I'll let you listen what that means and the other one is there were two college football teams in Hawaii on December seventh nineteen forty one who had gone over to play the university receive Hawaii and all of a sudden they're Maroon there and you know and they are within range of enemy bombs and they are scared and and so we tell their story of how they got there and what happened until once the war began and how they got back to the mainland I've been fantastic aspect teases and if you want to go back of course you could download all the down and distance podcast trust me.

"johnny rodgers" Discussed on Open Floor
"They've been sustaining US Andrew because if you're actually looking for real news we're getting like the ninth highest ranked executive from the clippers being hired as the biggest headline. Come on guys. I'm enjoying it. I feel like we have come through to the other side. After one of the craziest like two or three months stretches which is I can remember covering the N._B._A.. And now the biggest story like you said it's like Johnny Rodgers leaving the clippers to join the wizards words Ryan West stepped down from the Lakers. I saw a story about Anthony Davis Finding out about the Lakers deal from instagram and that was like its own standalone story so that's where we are in the N._B._A.. Calendar and a frankly I think we have earned it. We've earned a little downtime downtime luxuriate and spin our wheels here. No it's weird 'cause like my whole life as a student. I was always kind of like the procrastinator you know like wait till the yen and then just be rushed and and do it. I was never that person to like. Get the work done early. I feel like the entire N._B._A.. Approach July with the idea of look. We Wanna get everything done don as quickly as possible. We're not worried about the rules. We're not worried about illegal contact any of that stuff. We're just going to get it all done in the first three days and then the last two weeks of July we're all going on on vacation and even just like texting with various people around the league. That's what it seems like. It's a it's a real kind of letdown content void. Whatever you WANNA call it <hes> so I'm I'm struggling to come up with topic betrayal? Hopefully you've taken care of that. I've done my best and yeah I think it's a great strategy on the part of the entire N._B._A.. N._B._A. and I'm glad that everyone is on the same page. I'm glad that we knocked it all out at once and now then let's get into some like depths of the off-season all season topics here. Let's do it but I should admit though like I mean being that hoops junkie legs yesterday I started to shake a little bit and I started to do the top. One hundred prep is like oh man. I don't know what to do with myself. What should I do so I started digging into the top one hundred so that's right around the corner? Andrew ranking season is sort of a you so are shining light at the end of the total. I can't wait. There is a lot of intrigue this year as to WHO's going to be ranked number one. I'm putting the pressure on you now oh to put us in that top spot. We'll have to wait and see how it all shakes out but for now then we have to talk about over unders you talk about having the shakes. You texted me about the over unders earlier this week. I didn't even know they had been released but David says hey guys the over. UNDERS came out a couple of days ago and I know you guys are starving for off-season subjects for the podcast man.

"Hey go, thank you. Your next project a nest is it really called Nazis wild west town. Yeah. It is. I can't believe it myself and union deniro out twenty. Yep. Try Woodstock Marengo. It's been billed as premier old west theme park. I didn't know there were any other. I know. This is the premier one. How did this happen? You know what I really wanna cowboy hat, and the duster, and all that all I'd be wearing. You know what? It's it's been going for forty five years, the Donnelly family started this thing, and they've been really going for, you know, for all this time, and it's become a family tradition. And it's an amazing thing and I hadn't heard about it before either. It's, it's just something because as I'm getting into it so many people have grown up generation after generation, it's got it's got the one thousand nine hundred sixty three train from Brookefield zoo. It's got a little roller coaster. It's just it's, it's got the largest collection of Thomas Edison. Memorably. Well, that's what put me over the years. A museum attached to it. And I'm a huge Thomas Edison fan. And you know what when I saw all this stuff, and all the just all the phonograph equipment just all the original stuff. And this thing this exhibit, I knew I was home. I you say large hundreds of items hundreds of items, and there's photographs, and there's the cylinders and there's, there's memorabilia, and it's just so much if you're a an Edison fan if you're really into the history of all of it, it's, it's really an incredible place. So what's the timetable with this? I mean it's going to me listen to radio you're out there today. Very open next me, the run down the our share. It's right now until June tenth. Were until the kids get out of school where every Saturday and Sunday. We open up at eleven AM and go till about eight or nine and on Sundays. We go till about six and then June tenth will will start and go seven days a week every day from ten in the morning, and we'd be on so late nine o'clock at night, and several different days have different hours. But I tell you what it's a great place for a full family. And what I'm doing is I'm bringing some some more food, options and music actions. We already built four stages opened up a restaurant there. Two hundred seat restaurant, is that the Papa Lubo rockabilly cafe? No. Bebop. Lula's. Okay. What I wanted to do Cowboys and Indians there. I want to bring a little bit more of Elvis, and Johnny cash and just all that great music. You said you wanted. I think one thing that might be different from people who were there before you wanted to do a concert in the park feel. Yeah. I mean like I said, we're going to build an outdoor venue for a couple of thousand seats. That's coming but yeah, there's, there's several options for live music. There's magicians. There's strolling entertainers is just a complete immersion. It's a lot of fun. And it's an brings it back in the day. There's gold panning for gold. There's a canoe ride. There's pony rise all kinds of great stuff there. There's a lot of fun. I'd like to see them ponies. And how how far is union like from downtown Chicago or the western suburbs system, you from the air Kada, it takes me about thirty five forty minute was from O'Hare takes about forty minutes. If it's just starting off a ninety route forty exit forty two Morongo. Then you've got Evanston, going, I it's fabulous. Evanston, racks music room, our other Speakeasy bourbon and brass out there, and then the place where I put my recipes with my music rock and ravioli. And where's that, that's all? Yep. How do you find time to do all this? You know what? It's nothing really I'm here. Saturday. We're very happy to head. So what I wanted to ask you is there are kinda like your big really big for the mice out thing, I've been doing a lot of festivals for a long time. A lot of corporate events special I mean, I've been doing this for almost forty years now. But, but yeah, the Arcata has really propelled us to another level. And especially with as the Arcado would apply to this plane's. What did you learn from the Arcot experience? Let's start with the displaying seater that you can now apply in displaying. Well, I don't know Dave s a great question. I don't rely. I don't think I realized just how important these venues have come to be in the community and not only to be community friendly, and I welcome every organization, but it's also something where people are coming to depend on these types of venues. I mean, you know, we need a place for our music, the music from the fifties sixties seventies, and eighties to play and the, the size of these venues are. Perfect. The acoustics are perfect, and as he's these X, these acts and us get holder. These places are the place to hear them. What's the what's the capacity of this? I saw six hundred and nine hundred. Yeah, actually, you know, it's an interesting situation. They've the I mean they had such great vision. I can't say enough about the city council and the city manager and the mayor, of course of displaying. They've had so much vision about what this needs look like what they wanted to look like they've got it. They've partnered with rivers casino out there as well. And they said, basically, you know, we, we've cut it round. Here's the keys. Give us your designs you design it. The way you want it the way it's going to be great for people have given that the decor, I'll be opening up to restaurants in the building as well, which is a little secret. But I'll let you assume and, and it's going to be something we hope to I hope to emulate, the, the Arcata feel a little bit, and also the size it should be close to seven eight nine hundred seats and. And we're looking at the big questions Wednesday can read six to nine months. Yeah, it depends, you know, this, this operation and initiative. So there's full bidding process and things. So I'm thinking if it's not by the holidays by, by spring for sure. What are the challenges? I've asked us when we had I I'm infatuated with neon sign old, neon signs and old drive in movie theater, which are going away. Sure, what are the what are the challenges of just restoring, these old places the innards of the electrical system. I know that you had a little electrical earlier this year are kinda keep these things going, and kind of with old equipment stuff like it's not as much of the work because you take out pipes. You put a new pipe. Wires putting into wires. It's really frankly, it's the codes of the different municipalities, and he'll we we're, we're very you know, all about the safety, all about the health, you know really, really are. And that makes it very, very difficult. You know, new codes come out and, and you have to bide by them. Of course, we welcome that one hundred ten percent. But that's that's the challenge. You know. I mean you'd you'd like to have fifteen hundred seats but it only fits nine hundred Nicole and we, we abide by that. But that's that's the biggest challenge. Would you see a scenario of routing and act like having next year at this time, having the DO hologram hologram one night at our cotton and the next night at this point? You know, the great thing about this area, Chicago and the suburbs. And just there's so many people, and they're all walks of life, and they're all various cultures and very neighborhoods, as mentioned earlier. So I can easily have something at the archive on one night, and have it at displays another night, and have it outdoors at in union another night in heaven acoustic version over it in Evanston. And there's a couple of other surprises come into by the way. Is there live music, regular basis yet in union or is that summer though, we've got like I said, it's all, we've got a lot of rockabilly. We opened up with one of our favorite bands Rosie, and the rivets. Johnny Rodgers tonight. We'll have ever seen. We've got Rick Lindy. We've got all those great, you know, the flat cats all those, those great bands that we have we don't Elvis nights every Friday. I mean, people just love this stuff. So where did you get? You've been on the show before maybe we've talked about your roots, but where does DNA come from this promoter thing the energy. I mean does talk about your dad again? We've talked about your. Well, you know, my dad my folks, they love music by dead loved it so much. I mean you know, that's where I got big on on on big band music. Of course, we have the Glenn Miller, orchestra Arcata every year in his honor. But, but, you know, when you say promoter and stuff, I still don't have friends in the business, of course that are promoters, my mentors earning granted from jam and all these great guys. You know. But I'm a fan. I'm just a fan and I got lucky in a certain situations where I can I've befriended. These guys guys like Howie Mandel was with us last last week, and he stood the Speakeasy till two in the morning. I mean that kind of a fan of your column in the daily herald. There's a plug for you. And I know you love from reading that when I when I get the daily herald there, you'll have Tony Orlando, he's going to become a good friend. Tell you what I opened up in Evanston. He heard I opened up that Rockin ravioli Evanston, Rockin ravioli, he calls me up baby sweetheart. That's how he is just one the finest guys in children. I heard you open up a I told him all about two days, later flies in just to have dinner there from from Las Vegas. Great guy, and the column. I can't believe that you read every Friday and daily herald. I've got the Cinco backstage my stories and I get text all the time from freaking the legendary Dave hoax, drew who reads my column. That's that's blows me away. Great stuff. Well, thanks so much for coming. Down on a Saturday night at a holiday weekend. Because nothing better to do the best round. Give me a website again, where people can find out all your stuff to the letter o shows dot com shows dot com os shows in the hologram, too. I believe is the Friday night so I'm not on the air.

I still think of it as one of the greatest games I've ever seen. And I remember Johnny Rodgers breaking ankles on that punt return. I'm sure you do. All right. If a very I think it was the first punt of the game. But boy, I those were two great teams. You're talking about a one and a two it was tremendous. Now, I mentioned light on that night. I went to the Georgia Georgia Tech game, Georgia. Anne Johnson was a quarterback at Georgia. Drove the length of the field at the end of the game and a running back by the name of Jimmy poolice jumped over the top with about a minute left in Georgia. I think one twenty eight twenty four that that was a great day of football. Oh, let me let me say this about you. And I don't think you get enough smoke blown your way. I think whenever and hopefully it's not ever that is their postmortem written about the Atlanta Journal constitution. I think you will be right behind Furman Bisher with mentioned as far as the great columnist at the age AC. And let me say this before you say anything I've only been to one game and happens, and it was the first year the Carter administration seventy seven and the attorney general Griffin bell who was George alum and future. President a law school was the grand marshal, his guess. For the weekend was Prince Charles and James Brown was invited to come. And he performed the halftime show with the Georgia ban. It was like nothing I've ever seen at the half. And I had to get back to my home in Daytona Beach. I would've with my dad he stayed over. And I took southeastern stages now that would probably date both of us from Athens to the Atlanta airport to fly Eastern Airlines, which is really dating both of us. Right. Exactly. And by the way, the Prince Charles game that you mentioned in Athens. Georgia play Kentucky and got beat either thirty two enough in thirty three to nothing. That was not a good day thirty three to nothing. And and you know, what the deal with that game Georgia started that game trying to block are still with two finish the game trying to block him with three and they never succeeded with either one of them couldn't do it. Anyway, I picked up the midnight addition. I addition midnight at the Atlanta airport, and there was firm and bishops column and they're. A picture of coming it. With Prince Charles shaking hands with James Brown with Furman Bisher doing introductions and. The line under the picture was the whitest man in the world beats the blackest, man. Truth in that, right, crazy. I want to say something about Tammy and God rest, her soul. And that of her granddaughter. I was amazed at how touched I was. I've heard Tammy on the show.

Was it that seed that was placed there and allowed everyone else to believe within that one industry? What if we took on that type of belief with whatever we were doing that we were gonna leave the seeds in the legacy and the inspiration for others to to be able to shift. Once I got you to believe it's true. I've elevated your own pride. Akron tattoo. On sale about it, but that put me over the, it's like they stop selling Brown's gear is used to be on sale. Now it's normal retail price here drama on the beloved in inside. No, too. Have you ever read the talent code? Yeah, I just love that book, but I have a similar. I have no research, no numbers, no, nothing. I feel the same way about Compton being that Compton is like the most famous hood in America, I would say, but the amount of successful crazy inspiring people from there is like more Namie any other neighborhood? Right with more successful people from it, but it's also known as one of the most dangerous. Scary. You know what I mean? It's really. I don't know if it's because of proximity to LA or there's Compton pride or whatever it is, but it's really interesting. You know when you when you look at places like that when in sports wire quarterbacks from that part of eastern Pennsylvania, why running backs from San Diego from Johnny Rodgers on the most Heisman Heisman trophies from San Diego? Yeah. Why is it that these areas have different specialties and it's an energy, you know? And I believe that that's what makes California so unique to me and Oprah had she backed thing at the California adventure in Disney, and it really struck a chord. There's a video that talks about the energy of California will. This was founded by venturous people, right? That's why the silicone valley's a Silicon Valley people came out here looking for gold. Yeah, right. It's different energy..

"A fan through memorabilia. They're all kinds of ways to do. You could be a fan through media. Nostalgia. Yep. What this thing with the women's tennis thing reminds me. Most of is the phenomenally stature decision that the NHL made years ago to get off ESPN and onto sports throat when they went to spike TV for the playoffs. Remember that went to the players before that they went to sports channel. They would ESPN's only professional league at the time and he did. You know they did it them up ESPN they did what he is being does, which is the hype them from the moon and then they moved onto sports. You know, that's what this reminds me of know. They made a big mistake and I think the good news is at least if you're a fan of tennis and I am because I watched the women as much as I watched the man. I'm happy that they're back can actually watch them for the season. And you know, finally, Charlie no-show, it'd be complete without at least some discussion of the Cleveland Browns. But here's a story about a different team, a barn. Iowa has a locked cooler full of Budweiser, Bud Light, but Budweiser that it will open when the Cornhuskers when its first football game of the season. Great idea, right? Yeah, I don't understand why barn. I always doing this, but. Okay. Just making fun of the. Husker's that cooler is likely going to stay closed for at least another week. But here's my question. What happened in Nebraska football? If you are of a certain generation, my late mother-in-law was from Nebraska, her brother and her father and her grandfather all played football for Nebraska. I think they've been crippled, I think by conference realignment and by the fact that the whole nature of college football's changed. The thing about those Nebraska teams was outside of people like Johnny Rodgers and Tommie Frazier, they were big goons. They would beat you to death over the up and down the field. The games changed to very big people who are really fast, and I don't think Nebraska's ever really caught up on that. We've come a long way since Tom rathman, Roger, Craig, there you go. You could find the sports writing of Charlie Pearson Sports Illustrated from time to time any joins us each week on only a game. Thank you Charlie. Thanks art.

"Badesch WGN radio newsroom. This is the stuff that matters on Chicago's very own seven twenty WGN haven't found it. Welcome back. We are talking about other people. We know because we know we have a lot of mutual friend who says the cavalry. All good music. All we've talked about some. No, no. Darrelle nips. Let's not let's not be be rash here. We've talked about some people. We don't like and. Even be in the camera. Let's get Charlie. Really wonderful people. We will agree. How many the pay Heatley legacy which takes place Saturday October sixth at Davenport's at eight o'clock. Starring these two lovely people who in here with me. Jennifer French, and who no one has ever said anything bad about you never ever ever and McGregor in the Johnny Rodgers and filter toe and Joe Pollick. To Paula Castro. Those are the friends. How many it is and dirty? So what you told me just as you're walking in here that when you start to conceptualize a cabaret show, you try to keep it to seventy five minutes. Why is that? Now in his own show. Four our shows ninety. Shows are four hours, but Davenport's actually will charge. You have you vote much past the seventy five they'll they'll ask for a little bit more money. So since it's not my money that's going on usually try to push it to seventy five. I also think in a small room like Davenport's, and you're sitting there ninety minutes is a little long. And in my shows, I say the people you gotta go to the bathroom. Go get a drink. You wanted to go. But that's what I do in my shows. But if it's someone else's show people are very shy to get up and go get a drink. So seventy five is really about the perfect late. And I think there are people that do a sixty minute show. And it's too short. Most of the good shows that I saw New York and like when they used to have like earth a kid and Bobby short that was about that late seventy five minutes blossom Dearie, those are the length of that. So it kind of watching those people well to do the show I tried to build a journey to. So that's another reason I hear people say, oh, you know. I didn't even know that was seventy five minutes because they took me on such a journey of their life three music. Now, do you do it? You don't do the tunes. Chronologically do you or the set list? You say I I kinda start there. But then I also want to tell their story. So sometimes, you know, I'll move a song if it fits song. Here's to you. At the end that is a song. She was singing later in her career. She wrote it, but like fever. You wanna save that is that all there is, you know, those are like I mean is that all there is is just one of the craziest. Yes. Later told holder records that it was too weird with worthy was too weird to record and she's just like the house that Peggy belts. So she got to do whatever she want. How many do you know you brought in for me to look at? It's my dad. These are these. So they're they're works of art. Absolutely. Sinatra's albums were works. Well, he produced that one the man I love with Nelson riddle workers. Yeah. So I mean, they were good friends conducted by Frank Sinatra wild prices and the Latin. Cuban beat these are. Why not? Yeah. No. Because my nephew should be an art gallery of some sort. They're great the when you as a singer both of you. It occurs to me that that you probably never you would you would be incapable of seeing a song the same way twice. You're not a robot. You guys are not a record. You were not mouthing words to a record that to me. Would be one of the most exciting things about being a professional singer. Am I right or wrong holiday close that she's billion in lady sings the blues the book, she says something just exactly along those lines? And she doesn't sing it. I I she will change tempos and do a lot different stylings, which I I love to hear that through her career. How she did that what I do is. I try to be in the moment. So what hits me or what I'm emphasizing at that time or especially when I'm doing the front room ad-libbing, you know, things that come up. Yeah. When you do a show like this, you might have an audience that knows Peggy Lee and their wisdom for everything, and you might have an audience that you can kind of gauge you're teaching them something. So you might throw in an extra little store. You know, it's about reading that room. See that's where that's where the. Audience becomes another member of eggs. You more. Another friend. It is and you send how they're reacting to a specific Leary can. And you said Daryl you do when you're there feel something. Yeah. And you'll sense what the audience is feeling this is, you know, there ain't a lot of money in what you do. Let's go phrase cabaret star. So there's the joke is like you've never seen like. But nowadays, I do know a few. Exception. You don't say, oh, look at that cabaret star, you know, driving that Bentley or, you know. Ever. But it's not even even the people like John Wallich and Bobby short and Julie Wilson like people that I really got to know and have conversations. I mean, they did very well for themselves, but they they weren't living these I mean, Bobby show was very well paid Julie Wilson here, but they they didn't live those those high, and I'd go over to John wall, which is house and just sing songs of them stuff was just a little small apartment. They weren't living extravagantly, and yeah, it's not I don't know the art of intimate singing is not something that, you know, unless you're Michael Feinstein or somebody like that I say, it's a labor of love. Really? That's an old kind of hackneyed phrase. But I think it really you're right though. I mean in this case it really does apply. If you both seen Feinstein's Roman below fifty seven fifty four below have you seen it? I know I have. Yeah. I I've seen it online. Yeah. It's pretty snazzy. But it is intimate. She wanted to go there to see Marilyn may. We had Marilyn may out here. I mean, Maryland maze like ninety and I still think just one of the most genius singers edged you talk about she just comes right out there and the livers it like a lot of these old school entertainers dead, but she's in her nineties, and she's still giving it to her audience. And she'll be the first person to tell you that the audience is a part of what you are doing. Forgetful. Yeah. No, you must have Jennifer. I know you do terror you must have regulars who come to see every. Yes. I do next. Check the superfan. God bless them. Yeah. Definitely. And you know, and that was part of the challenge when I got married had a child as I was developing a following. And then when you drop out for eight years, and then you get back to it. You know to build it up again. And that's fine. It's all a process your child is in an one of Darrell Darrell teacher child. Lucky? Alphabet city he's playing. The sax though, he says he wants video solo sometime. Walter fear. That is next for you seem to really so get along again, Loretta Lynch show, which was completely out of my element. My mom's from the south, and wow was that fun and another singer songwriter. As part of the fabric of America. And just, you know, her story and being a feminist and just, you know, not knowing she was one. And so we're doing that show again in March. Doing a show. We're doing an October. We're doing the the Chicago cavalry. That's right. Part of that the twenty second Johnny Rodgers is also in that and CCP's twentieth anniversary. So. Yeah. Twenty years of SCC p south park west. So you've got a ticket. Fly dot com to get those tickets. That's a big deal. Yeah. There's no honoree this year. They're just asking Dan Mason to these Tomasulo myself, the honorees from previous years, Becky Manzi. And then Susie Petri, Bob marine. And then the first actors made up of cabaret, you go to a Nightline that at the park was and you see about forty some. Really show. It's nice about it. You can go see people there. You're like, oh, I want to seek them out. See that's the best thing about it. I mean, it's not like taste of Chicago where you know, you gotta taste you. If you're bringing in there. Really good ribs. I'm never known anybody to go. Even try to find the playwright about the cabaret show. You're really, right. Yeah. We'll have people can there's a case should be. I won't say ripple effect. I will say about a taste of Chicago, Bob, those my ties. Where's the Bob? Tens of work in China. And I need eight tickets for two miles from my school. Does your child? No what you do for a living. And he thinks it's great. He told me to break a leg when I left. He's a character. Yeah. You really does. He memorized us all the lyrics. I did the Sherman rather, Sal, I brought it to school actually. And other places as well. And yeah, he was he was so happy about any given any thought to taking this Lee legacy show to a nother sort of venue, Daryl. Well, we did we took it to the Skokie theater. Okay. But we lost a little bit of the intimate. Yeah. We like doing this is the third time at Davenport's. Yeah. Yeah. I think so. I don't know. Like that into it. Real regularly at basin street, or whatever I mean, you know, just the way the drums and the instruments reverberate in that room. If you just this here, this is going to be really cool. It's like there's just something about it. Whereas even a one hundred fifty seat small Skokie theater or of city winery, three hundred seats. You lose that intimacy. Agreed. But but I am thinking of doing that in the future is taking it to some of the jazz venues around Chicago. And even the Sherman brothers show. I mean, it's so jazz based a lot. The songs YouTube YouTube have been something. It's the Peggy Lee legacy started presented by Jennifer, French and friends Jennifer's in here with one of those friends down. It's the others. You can see over six at eight o'clock had Davenport's you can go to a couple of websites deal. You have a website, right. I do but it doesn't have this. I don't I'm the process. He's working. Are there? There's busies a teacher. He's gotta go in the process by our goal is by fifty fifth birthday, which I'm doing a show called. Under the influence. Daryl news is under the influence still alive at fifty five starring Daryl knits and Bob. And that's that's gonna be a down imports. Launched my new website..
"johnny rodgers" Discussed on The Herd with Colin Cowherd
"So so. So you show up on campus there and did you know like did you know that that the UCI was that loaded like yet Eddie at Todd, Todd Murphy in Johnny Rodgers. Were that good. I had no idea how good we were. I just thought, you know, I thought we were this great university close to new Newport Beach, a beautiful campus, great teammates. I just thought we were just going to have a lot of fun. They're all kind of like they all kind of looked like they were just off the the, but they were competitive. I thought I just thought, man, I gotta step up my game. These guys are these guys compete in their athletic and they're big and they're strong. They're quick and they can shoot Johnny Rodgers. Tod Murphy. They're great. Cheers in their six, nine, six, ten, six, eleven range. And I'm thinking, man, I've never seen guys this bit could shoot the ball and run the floor and move around like they did, but I knew that we were really good. And like I said, what a great experience I had and and and coach mulligan had a great run Kevin MaGee was all time best player. I, I mean, it's the same that you know he'd never played an MBA 'cause he was by far the best player ever played revived them McDonald, Bob Thornton. Just. Wayne, they'll set hill lot of NBA players during like three or four. You're stretching there, but it was because a mulligan won a great recruiter. Okay. So what was he like as a coach though? Because again, they would all those players and it's like every year you guys would beat UNLV and yet you couldn't get to the tournament because there was only only UNLV would get there and the league was really good. Was he not that good coach? I mean you went like your first year you have like ten game. I remember your second year you have is like twenty three game. When did you guys not play defense? What was what was missing there? Yeah, you know why? Great coach, great recruiter, fun guy. I mean crazy, but in a fun way he wanted to he, he taught me a lot about offense of basketball or decent. You know, I, we weren't as good as we. We needed to be and that was obvious, but our offense, we were way ahead. He was a pro offense coach before and it callers coach played that way. We were fast-breaking. We were shooting quick. We were shooting threes. My, you know, my my senior year at a pretty good clip, but he was, I thought he was very, very animated and he was loved by the players because he was a lot of fun. Fiery are halftime legendary. Sessions. You know, things were thrown cares where thrown and it was it was it was a, it was a fun time to be an anti-terror. Okay, so you get done playing yards about twenty three point eight almost twenty four points a game. And by the way like you get, people should go back and look as you point out, you guys shot twice as many threes your Ponant and as a team, you shot forty one percents from three which is great numbers even even today. And that was right. I was before others embraced the three point shot averaging like eighty six eighty seven game. Okay. So. How did how did it happen that you went to the CBA? Because I don't know if you remember, but this is right about the time of the my dad was supposed to coach a team in the. Which has six, six foot four hundred league. They were going to war. That they were gonna play at the Brennan center and you were the first? I think the first overall pick of the draft and Bo Jackson, by the way was his last pick? I'm gonna remember that. And okay. So you get done playing it. What happens. Well, you know, it's funny. Your dad coached got, we meet at Cocos right next to the airport, and he's saying that we're starting to league and I'm thinking, okay, that's great. But I wanna make the NBA, but it was. This was going to give me a great opportunity to keep playing. And at the time they were offering, it was going to be a pretty good salary. I can't remember. I thought it was like twenty thousand for like three months or four months, and it was six, four and under was very intriguing..
