"I believe there's a big college football playoff meeting later this month. Like end of september. So i think a big part of it was the big twelve wanting to be able to say we're not in shambles. No we're not falling apart. Here's our plan moving forward so now we can be part of the cfp talk now. It can be a part of this alliance. It's not gonna look the way it did and certainly not going to bring in. You know the tv money that the current big twelve you know tv contract brings in for those programs. But you're right that's a step up and at least right now. They're kind of doing everything they can to hold onto that autonomy. That power five conference position and You know at least when you look at it on paper what they have right now. You're adding some really good football program. Cincinnati right now would be the highest ranks of book program in the big twelve behind oklahoma And you look at a basketball conference. That i know that doesn't really move the money but man the past ridiculous if you look at it that way so what ends up looking like on the things actually get their money wise and reality wise. We'll see but right now was kind of the best thing the big trump could do to to really stay with the system. You move to the big twelve and now just texas and oklahoma leave twelve schools. You're gonna play more than eight football games. You're gonna play nine maybe you're gonna play ten from a scheduling perspective. Now you only have a handful of non league games at your disposal. I know they have a contract with miami to play that thing until two thousand twenty nine but this has become more and more of a topic every single year because of the one-sidedness of the rivalry. Could you see a point. Where perhaps the battle for the victory bell game becomes if you will casualty of. Uc's moved to a different conference definitely or you know they. They play out the string of the contract they have and then it goes away. Or maybe if they're playing two or three non conference games you know. Instead of playing sds team they play miami or something like that. Because i think you're still going to want to. Maybe try and be a part of that alliance and have those other. You know home at home. P. five games now that those teams won't hang up on you But yeah i mean. Obviously lots changing you look at somebody like byu. They're gonna have to tear up a bunch of contracts because their independence schedule all of them so if if the the battle for the victory bell is a is. A casualty of this lived a longer life. But i don't think certainly anyone on the cincinnati side. We'll we'll be missing. Maybe that game in athens twenty-six that could be a problem for you know hey. That game is untouchable. Preserves reserve that trip to athens at all costs. I'm going to be pitching like week long. Features to go out there at a time and everything like that. Don't don't mess with that all right. Well we'll see we'll see what happens. I hope for your sake they. They can figure out a way to still play that game. Appreciate it as always thank you so much. Thank anytime re justin williams the athletic dot com and he is a great twitter. Follow at williams underscore. Justin we are late. Give your reds lineup. Because you can't get that anywhere else next on. Espn fifteen thirty..

"Twenty-three half for five this. Espn fifteen thirty. A mo- egger look ahead to a some brewers give starting lineup and actually take some phone calls here in just a bit but i Justin williams covers. Uc's sports for the athletic. I'm probably going to bother him next week because we have to talk about the team. The season opener is going to be on saturday against miami the battle for the victory bell. The most highly anticipated bearcat season and team. I think in the history of the program and so much to be excited about so. We'll do a lot of that next week. I'm sure justin will be on every show on every radio station. This cluster owns because he's actually on iheart media more than i am but i wanted on top of all that today because the big ten. Acc and twelve. They've announced this alliance. I'm not really sure what the plan for these three conferences is. I'm not really sure what this is gonna mean but a lot of folks have what is it going to mean for uc. What's it going to mean for the. I don't know. I have no idea. And i don't know that justin knows but if there's anybody who's actually qualified to say what it's going to mean for you see. It's justin longest wind to an interview. Ever how are you. I'm doing good how are you. i'm good first of all this alliance. I tried to watch this press conference today. I walked away from it confused. They say they want to address the future of college athletics. They didn't say how they're going to do that. They said they're going to have some scheduling alliance all. They didn't announce how they're going to do that. They were asked while. Hey do you have contracts in place. And they said well. We don't really need that. They announced an alliance. But i don't know what the alliance is really of or for or what its purposes do you or they had a really nice background with the conferences Yeah and are we good. Are you good with the alliance. I've seen some people call it. The big pat land pack alantic. Oh i like that. We can do that too. But no you're right. Th it's really what. It actually is is an alliance of people who are mad at correct. Sankey the commissioner of the sec. And and it's i thought what you posted about like a bunch of guys trying to vegas and you know they call it the alliance to convince their wives and let them do it. There's also like feels like a middle school lunch table aspect of all right. Well the sec. You know they think they're the cool kids so now all the rest of us are going to band together and and show them that. We're actually cool too but in terms of actual substance or impact. It'll have right now. Not really you mentioned the part about the scheduling okay. That could have an impact. But they said they're not going to get out of any existing contracts only when the knows anything about college football. These people are booked out through the twenty thirties and times of non conference games. I think what it is trying. These other conferences that feel like they got shafted and left out.

"I've got to think of somebody who comes from a program where the carolina family is such a big deal he certainly will be cognizant of being a quote unquote outsider and having to build a relationship with those in the cincinnati basketball family. Yeah i think so too and i. I'm interested to talk about that tomorrow. You know he does introductory press conference. He he was born in greensboro. He played north carolina. he coached at. I think what three universities alon high point and then. Unc greensboro north carolina. I mean he is the carolina guy. And you're right. You know everything. We've talked about this week with eric. Martin you know that was a lot of people that was less miller north carolina just a couple of weeks ago five days ago. Whatever it was and you have to imagine you know. I'm of course. He wanted that job and think about how he probably felt in the aftermath of that. So yeah you know okay. Here's another chance to become head coach. But you're right. I think he almost certainly has to understand. You know why there was so much interest in in hope from fans and more players and all that to maybe go in that more you know pissed oracle direction. Cincinnati and so. I certainly think that somebody's going to be aware of and address. Justin williams from the athletic has done an amazing job. Documenting everything that's been happening with a ucla basketball over the last month. Obviously what's next is. He's got rebuilt a roster and he's got to do it with with guys that he has to convince to stay guys that he has to convince to not leave and right now. Those are separate entities between guys who are on the roster right now and players who in the portal and then there's obviously getting guys from the outside whether they be transfers or whether they be kids from high school just outlined for me how you number one we to a degree. We know how the next couple of weeks are gonna unfold. He's gonna he's going to recruit he's gonna fill the roster but in terms of players looking to leave the program. What are you hearing. What is the timeline for. Some of these guys to make up their mind..

"I think it has to be right. And you know. I wrote this. And and kinda the initial candidates thing and again. There's no secrets. Bob huggins still has a remarkable amount of sway within uc basketball program. And part of that is like just because of you know. Fans revere him in that time. But with actual donors with people involved in the program and the university. Bob huggins still has the way. And so. I think you're definitely seeing some of that at work here and sure and considering the financial situation that cincinnati and a lot of universities athletic programs are in right now. I don't think it hurts. If part of what you can fail is you know. Hey maybe you get some some old donors back in the fold or just in general like it's been a tough couple of weeks for the fan base. You know what an easy nice way to kind of get. Everyone excited and galvanize them. As if you're selling eric martin's back and maybe nick van exel come in with them and some of those former players. Who maybe they still kind of been around the program but maybe they feel that much more connection to come back and be around. And you know this better than anyone like cincinnati. It wraps itself around. Its own it prizes history. Ucla basketball in the huggins air up more than anything. so while. maybe that's not the main impetus for martin king some steam or maybe that's the main reason hands getting hired. It definitely has to be you know a consideration and obviously. I think it probably should be justin williams covers. Uc sports for the athletic on twitter at williams underscore. Justin would the eric martin thing be a package deal with nick. Van exel if it were to happen. I don't know for sure. I know you know. Our our mutual friend terry nelson has has put that out into the universe. And look if anyone would know it would be tearing I it seems like there's enough smoke around there. That at the at least worth talking about Been reports that the john cunningham the university you know in addition to talking. There aren't talking nick so at some point to do so. I certainly a topic of conversation and again. I think that's part of what we just talked about. You're getting donors involved. You're getting old owners involved old players involved and and kinda going back to the glory days of cincinnati basketball or at least the most recent glory days basketball. So it's it's probably something that will have to be finalized. Maybe not exactly when eric martin signed on the dotted line. But it's certainly something that has been. You know wickford rumored kicked around and i think that would only be another thing. That would just really have this. This fan base excited bob. Huggins is not the only former uc coats with an interest in getting someone on his staff a chance to try and get this job mick. Cronin endurance savino have been talked about. Were talked about a lot in the run-up to john. Brennan being let go i have. I haven't heard as much since friday. What.

"I agree to just doesn't seem like someone who's you know going to is very motivated to wrap this up quickly. If mike he said and again that that is everything we've seen in terms of him hiring. Tom marrs and some of the message signaling. That has come from from tom. Mars this weekend today. Including you know information about the tech message from luke fickle. It certainly seems like this is going to be a legal battle that extends certainly through the summer potentially even into you know the season and beyond so while. There's a lot to be done. You know currently with the basketball program and hiring of coach and all that kind of stuff. It seems like kind of john brennan. Cincinnati story is is not. I got like thirty seconds and you have to go great stuff. Who are who are the names. That folks should pay attention to. This is very early. Maybe you'll have a better idea of the way to answer this on monday. Folks want to know who's next i. I can't imagine they're just starting fresh thinking about who could the next head coach be. Who would be the what would be the two or three names that you would pay. Pay most attention to yeah. I'll tease it out. That you can read about this on the athletic shortly. I work with ryan hamilton on a piece of candidates. Quick ones for me. Dennis gates from cleveland state Eric martin from from west virginia archie miller And author darren savino. And there's well. I think those are all names that are probably come up but dennis gates and archie miller. Apparently the top two for me. But you're going to hear a lot about eric martin for obvious reasons neck. Awesome as always always good to us your swamp man. Thanks so much. Justin williams coverage uc sports for the athletic. We are done busy day. Thanks deterrent for producing.

"Cincinnati bengals play. Espn fifteen thirty right. It's five o'clock my name's malaga this. Espn fifteen thirty. Thank you so much for joining us. austin gail football focus in twenty minutes and in thirty minutes week. We've got a guy who's going to be hosting slap fighting on tv. This is an incredible our sports. Talk radio but i We just had ohio university head coach. Jeff bowls on here. We have a guy who a daily basis makes his alma mater. Proud The ohio sportswriter of the year. And if you read his piece in the athletic. I think you'll see why regardless of how you feel about john brennan how you feel about the ucla basketball situation with all the players. Departing justin williams has done a pretty thorough examination of some of the issues that have boiled over not even just bubbled to the surface boiled over in recent days. I have tweeted out a link. You can also go to the athletic dot com justin covers. Uc sports and it's a good at 'lustration as to what was happening behind the scenes that ultimately led to players departing the uc basketball program. Justin is on twitter at williams underscore. Justin you doing sir. I'm doing all right mojo you i am. I am good. I said this to you offaire. I said it. When i was kind of going through your piece on air i want folks to read it. I don't want you to recite the piece but you do. They do a really good job of painting. A picture of what was going on behind the scenes and folks can kind of draw their own conclusions from there as to what should happen with john. Brennan as to who's fault. It is if that's where you wanna go with the future of. Uc basketball is going to be. I do wonder this. Was there any any one event anyone impetus any one moment where things started to go from not good to almost not salvageable. I don't think so. You know maybe for individual players or are there was. But i think if you're just talking about kind of the general risks that was in the locker room between players and coach it felt like more of an accumulation stuff that built up over the course of you know. Let's be honest through a really difficult season for a lot of reasons. And so i you know. I think when it came to the end of the season it was just kind of everyone. Feeling the way of that. Not that they made their decision after the final buzzer the houston game. Actually in reporting this thing some some mind were more made up well before that. But i don't think you can point to one thing that happened on. You know this game or this road trip or this week in practice and say this is where things went wrong. I think everyone that obviously felt affected and they needed to leave the program. You know that kind of in in their own time but it was a build up of multiple different things they had the weekend. They had john brennan after the game on sunday. Talked about this group talked about this. The group of players that he has possibly being elite winning a championship with them. So within forty eight hours much of that falls apart. Do you think he was blindsided or do you think he was talking his group up knowing that this was possible in a last ditch effort to keep them. That's a great question and you know that's the tough part of report story like this because you get different perspective you know. I talked to people who. There's no way that you know. The staff was aware of what was going on that. It was just an environment during the season and i talked to people who said like you know. We didn't expect you know for all these these guys you know. Maybe not all of them. But especially guys like mike. Sandra junior tar eat of mesa madison at the port of this. I think it's pretty clear that because of how difficult this season was there was an understanding of okay this this off season. You know stuff like this could happen. But i think you're right in the fact that you know this run in you know you try and say like here's here's something we can use to propel us forward up with some optimism moving into next season and i'm sure that's part what john brennan was doing. Maybe either hoping he could change mind or hoping that that would would change mine and from the outside. You know i. I wrote about this. You talked about this. It certainly. You didn't the team that looked like it. Quit on its coach. But i think in in the process of reporting at least some of those players it was more than bandy together for each for each other and playing for each other and so it looks like yeah. They're giving us the they're winning. They're really committed team But then after the season you know decisions are made that had been made up you know definitely days weeks maybe even longer management it is it does make what we watched over the last month month and a half seem remarkable to me. I'm you and i are both at at every home game. We sit directly behind the bench. I saw a group of guys who were engaged. I saw group of guys who seem to be connected with their coach. I saw a group. Of guys certainly. I think it's easy to say this now that we're playing for one another just watching it and i know like somebody like yourself on the beat. You don't have the kind of access that you might have in a normal year but watching it from there watching what i saw this past weekend in fort worth. I just watching that. That would have suggested that. There was the disconnect that you've heard what can you speak to. How can you speak to that. So i think you take for example. I thought about when i was reporting on there was a video. I think it was after the wichita state game but basically video that the the the program put out of brandon coming into the locker room after win after the locker. Rooms really excited and stuff like that. And you're like what was going on here and then i talked to people over the course reporting and you hear a lot about like preservation or just getting through it and i think it was one of the situations where some guys chose to opt out and leave the program. Some of them chose to stay in band together and play each other. But i think when you make that decision you're kind of family all right. Let's see what we can do. You know let's write it out and who knows. I think that probably will this know. Scenario whether the team lost in the first-round the american athletic conference championship or whether they won and went to the ncaa tournament. But maybe if they beat houston and they play in the ncaa tournament. You know the the changes the mind or some things happen. We'll never know the thing. We won't know what the what it looked like without code. But i think at some point the the players who ended up leaving just decided like i'm here i gotta make the best of it while i can. I know the over. I'll make my decisions. And so that's why it certainly looks different on the outside and i include myself in that But but clearly some decisions were made immediately. After the season ended justin williams has a piece on what was happening throughout the course of the season with the basketball program. It's available at the athletic dot com. There is a link on my twitter. Feed at egger fifteen thirty just on twitter at williams underscore just so you get the sense. Let's say they somehow pull off a miracle and beat houston. And they're playing an indy this week that regardless if they they get bounced after a gamer. They've even if they win one tournament. The moment the season would have ended. We would have seen the same outcome with those guys. I think at least some of them or you know certainly talking to people. I think that would have been the same outcome or you talk someone else and it's like maybe it's not but especially in a story like this like there's not much time to kind of spend on the hypothetical that's certainly something worth thinking about but the truth of the matter is they went on the great run. They want to really tough game and had a really bad blowout loss and the championship game. And and that's the reality of you know what we have to frame these decisions. And so i think you could. You could play the what if game on that but like the way played out this the the kinda math that follow. I said this to mike decor see yesterday that the typically when you want something like this unfold you can't help but wonder what is there. What what is there is there. You know when when there's an exodus there's usually a coaching change. That's not the case there. There's massive playing time issues. That really wasn't the case with most of these guys. They weren't enough guys for there to be playing time issues or there's ncaa problems right. The feds are coming or compliance offices and drums. None of that was happening It's important to emphasize you mentioned this in the piece. Nobody suggested that there was abused. Nobody suggested that there was anything malicious. Nobody suggested there was anything illegal. Nobody suggested anything other than the disconnected..

"Ridder being the offensive player of the year in the league. And were you know. He's he's going to maybe leave early to go. Enter the draft and maybe drafted i. I would have laughed at you. I mean i. I would have taken that right now. The way i look at it is a. It's a great success story because he advanced so much you wrote about this during the season not just as a thrower but the mental aspect of pre-snap aspect of it. The timing the runs all that stuff. He really evolved into a complete well rounded college quarterback. But he's not a finished product. He still has a ways to go. He should be the quarterback of a really good team next year. It's also a loaded draft class So there's i certainly would never begrudge anybody a chance to go and lead to an opportunity that awaits and who knows what's going to happen. You could get hurt all that stuff at the same time. I think there's more upside to to to staying in school than there is to testing the waters in the nfl draft. Where as as great as it is. That people are writing about him as a as an nfl draft choice. It doesn't strike me as somebody who's going to be taken on thursday or friday so why not come back to school. Yeah and you know. Let's not discount. The fact like he can if he comes back and have a good season next year. He's he's up there with you. Know the duly. He's an all time great. you know. Cincinnati quarterback and football player. And he from right down. The road in louisville has family come up and see him play. Obviously this was not kind of the normal college experience this year. That the starting quarterback player of the year would wanna have so you know. Yeah i get the nfl. but I don't think we should discount all of that now wayne into into decision. Either if he were to go and now you see has to replace him. What is plan b quarterback. If does doesn't come back so you know a couple of weeks ago. Bryant entered the transport on. It was different than most people do that. He's still been with the team. He's still practicing. He was in atlanta at peachable. If leaves been bryan probably pulling them out of the portal and he probably comes The odds on favorite to be the starting quarterback it'd be a camp battle with him and greater michael linda. Our does come back though then. I think we're definitely gonna hear about them. Bryant going somewhere else twenty football the next couple of weeks and that's not a bad thing up in the plan all along You know the start of the season. Spend any chance to play. I think he was gonna two years. You can go play somewhere else and the staff wanted that for him but i think what does decides will also determine whether or not been brian justin williams justin williams coverage uc football and basketball for the athletic from a coaching standpoint. We'll see if anything comes open last year..

"The fix seems like the a great like on rap for this thing and that was really the spark that brought you back into like ups team situations than your brother didn't get react with the team but it was like then you got into the scene. Seen that kind of join us into the fix seen deals now there was purpose right. It was more than like. Oh i got a racing. I gotta get results. And i gotta try to win nationals. Now it was like man. Like i could help a bunch of people kind of discover this really cool sport in like travel outside of their city in travel outside of their state and kind of open their minds as something else something different so it just became like more fulfilling than when i was chip to fifty events like i would see people. I went to school with like i went to school at someone that reminds me of this guy or like the culture within the fifty scene was felt just felt more authentic and more real and more down to earth in like less just mental and it was just everything. I one out of cycling. I wanted to travel and the racing and and the winning and all that stuff. But i also wanted to kinda have that culture and have those conversations and like have that comfortable home environment so really wanted to like merge them together and i was like how. How can i do that. And that's where like everything kind of was rekindled for me. And i was like all right now. I have purpose now. I can take everything that. I've learned from cycling good and bad and maybe help. Some people have an understanding of how they can use this to their benefit or just take something from the sport like. I had taken from the sport naked. Be traveling the country. that could be meeting. Certain people that could be Different perspective or that could be going trying to go pro. So i wanted to share all of that and race results are only one small piece of that whole thing exactly. Yeah i think a lot of people get caught up in one or the other we do. A lot of marketing and social media is important but like winning is also important. Training also important giving back is also. Winning is really the winning is important. Only for the purpose of creating aspiration for the people that you're trying to help exactly. Yeah exactly so. When i when i first started winning races or mop perspective on winning was always that came with the responsibility and maybe i think that a lot of that came from roussin because he gave back to me a lot and he spent a lot of time with me that he didn't have to spend so my mind was when i started winning and when i get this massive platform and when i'm good enough to influence other people's my job to do the best that i can to give back to someone that bike i was giving back to really Yeah and then telescoping out and like looking at the world of cycling from ten thousand feet like. There's a lot of work to be done now. There's one one black right that front kevin raza Gregory bluejays French track sprinter. There's a couple of african writers like five guys on the kid to kid named nicholas. There is not as really good. There's a couple of incredible guys but again you if you if you see it from my perspective they're not really giving the green light to like go win something you know what. I mean like Daniel i can't pronounce his last name. Dan you was a kid that raced for What is the ntt squad. Now he was in a polka dot jersey at the tour france. He doesn't have a pro contract anymore. Because i'm assuming that he asked for a bigger contract right because had warned polka dot jersey at the tour de france which is a massive deal And they're probably like. Nah wow you take what we give you like. We're granting union. We're giving you the opportunity to get into that jersey. That was that was us that was that was So he doesn't have a protein now. Yeah and the organization just really you know stumbling over itself to appropriately deal with black lives matter any reasonable responsible way. And they can't because they are on they just don't believe in it they it's it's disconnected from it and they don't it's not their problem and that's how they handle it like it's not our problem we don't have. That problem. did only a little like only what he could do which was very little and the guy struck of like being on this team and what he's up against. Yeah so yeah it's like. How do you like beyond what you're doing with legion like how's that problem gets solved for me i. I don't i have no intentions on on on trying to convince anyone of anything Spend like a lot of my career waiting for people to do the right thing and try to like basically show people i have these conversations where hey man like these are the reasons why either this is wrong or or something needs to be done I just i'll just build it myself. I don't want to waste any more energy Either they get it or not and if they get it then fantastic will lead by example and will lead by continuing to do good things Rather than like waiting for someone to do the right thing or trying to convince someone to do the right thing like european. I'll say this over and over again. European racing is fantastic for europe and they can have that like i. I love watching it a super support it but what we're doing here. In america i think with criterium races is just under utilized. And i think that there's a space where we can build something. That's as influential if not more influential as far as having a diverse landscape and culture And then from there. We'll just raise the standard and either keep up with that standard or they don't but it's not. I don't think it's my job. And i think it's you know and i think that they've had a crazy amount of time to address the situation and they haven't so i'm not gonna continue to beat the dead horse. You know when. I it's funny what i've learned. Is that when you start to kind of move Things ford people all of a sudden understand what was happening. But if you're asking them to do it verses being the example in actually doing it you get two different results. Yeah well from an from a spectator perspective and like an audience enjoyment. You know point of view. Criterium races are just superior so like what are you gonna like for these these tours like you go and sit there all day and watch them ride by for ten seconds like i don't understand what that's the thing that they basically they basically tailgate and that's a part of culture. It's so fun criteria. You're watching you can see this whole thing unfold. Seeing these guys go by many times a day and it's there's something electric about yeah. You're watching the race mutate. Your you're feeling the energy of the peleton like it's just a different world is way more exciting in riveting in kind of like this crash is happening but there's also like you're seeing the teamwork you're seeing. Everything happened in a way that like you..

"Came back from europe. You checked in college like so. You didn't use that at that time. Did you think you were totally done or it. Just wasn't it wasn't fun. I wasn't having find. Housing is rather go to college like delivered the college life. You know to me. And i wanted to like hang out with girls and go to parties and stuff i didn't want to. I want to sleep in five hours. My executive warrant about my weight every day now. Silver cycle apartment in the job and went to college man. That was it but it was that pulled you back. Yeah quarry. i just started getting. He was just starting to get pretty good so i just talking to him again. I was the second time he saved me l. The hey hold up before that like. Are you like listen man. Here's what you're in for. Corey super stubborn. If you know anything about this younger than four years He was going to do what he wanted to do. Anyway i can't i. I can't tell corey anything. I can kind of like steer him and then he has experienced it so he was gonna go for it anyway. He's like is fine. I understand he's kind of a hermit anyway so he'd probably do well over in europe because he's like very to himself anyway he just. He loves his training. I live through racing. I don't really care about training. Training is something that i have to do. Quarry like loves his training. He loves looking at his numbers. He loves figuring out how to get better in a way. That's very computed or like very structured and. i'm like. I put an hours. I'll do my training to the best of my abilities. And then one we show up to the race out. i'll turn it on and that's always been outracing shape. The i like two months of the year on my struggling erases and like trying to find my fitness But then come you know may june. I typically start flying which i mean core work really well because he's always flying again And then when i come towards the middle of the year. It's kind of a nice break for him because he kinda carries the team in the beginning But i couldn't. I couldn't tell him. Why a minute such over these like not getting like is fine. Yeah i'm too much to get you to come back in. I just going to help him. Yeah i just thought. I was going to help him as far as like giving them the tools of like training and like just some of the things that i learned as far as how to build fitness How to be the best Rider on the bike trying to teach him tactics in understanding of the racing. And how you can take advantage of of being smart rather than being strong. So i just wanted to like basically give him as much knowledge as i could before like kind of peace style And then a year but when did it click in for you like oh. I forgot that. I enjoyed this or like this one race season came around gray season. Came around again. And i hadn't been focusing so much on road racing and training the year before The next year. When i got to do some of the bigger creeks in the country. That's when really was like. Oh no this is actually sick right. This year of like no pressure because i joined the like a local team that was going to go out to do some of the national stuff but not a full season and i just had so much fun. I wasn't even winning anything. I would just like being competitive and like running into people in my almost crashing and here talking about that like going into it without any expectations other than like. I'm just here to have fun and and support my brother. And you've been allowed you to connect with like why it was meaningful to you in the first place and then i had to like go through figuring out so i knew i didn't want to be pro in europe so then i had to go through the process of figuring out why didn't want to be pro in america because like also sucked man like. I'm not like have fun. Everyone's ruining the fun of this sport. And i don't understand why i have saw glimpses of Success in glimpses of promise as far as like what the sport could be But people just like the like. I said there's this active suppression of like anyone getting too big or anyone gaining any kind of influence with sponsors so and it's like this this massive control thing so i was writing for teens. Were i wrote for his team. One year where we had I think we have like green helmets. We had green and blue helmets that the jersey was like maroon and gunmetal we had like yellow shoes and then like a white and yellow bike and i was like his account alfie. I i can't wear this dude when you put on your uniform when you're playing football or basketball you put on your uniform. There's a point of pride of warring that uniform. You're like yes. This is business time you train and whatever but when you put your race jersey on it's time for business you're proud of it and you're going out to be going into battle and you have your like armor on silent isn't like that man or has it been like that. Traditionally you put on his jersey full of sponsors and you're like nothing matches sir. That is weird. But then they're also are all these weird like unwritten rules about like sockeye eight and like you know whether the sunglasses go over this kind of bullshit for people that are getting into cycling. They get they get intimidated or ridicule. Yeah you're you know because people don't know how to her if it's cool to wear your glasses over your helmet. Strap then relate that information in a way. That's positive right related information in the way. That's that's like. Hey man let me help you out but instead it's kind of like oh look at this. Look at this idiot. Or look at this fred or look at this. Whatever it's like looking for every moment kinda like down like push someone down rather than kind of helping someone because you have this shared and common interests so it is ridiculous like sock. I who cares big deal though all caught up in that for when you're like look you're putting you know when you're putting on your armaments go into battle and the pride that comes with that you know i for the weekend warrior cyclists. There's a little bit of that too. I think now more than ever to especially with like how rafa kinda came on office really to like done like you gotta care about kind of what you like and how you can help that shit so crazy. Expensive hopefully You know once you buy something like that and you you have it for a long time and that's why i love how simplistic like a lot of their designs are because of their classes. They're not gonna go right where we're like if you buy jersey with a ton of sponsors on and not only could those sponsors change from that team but like what..

"Hasn't won a big stage. Like that yeah one zero couple of years ago right. I think the time is time trial. Yeah yeah tahoe. But like it was funny. I was watching. This interview is better than one at a time trial and he was like way back like way better and i would agree because the time trials time-trial when you're in a race and your you know battling against one hundred twenty hundred forty other. Do you come out on top like it's just a different vibe. 'cause your in this this moving game where time travel like really structured reality. Check like he he still looking for eighteen. Like how hard it is. That a guy like that he just wanna stay zero. Yeah for next year. He will now. I'm assuming i'm assuming now he will but like he has a lot of going onto like he does like really see him and his wife to like really cool like just video. They have really good. They have a really good social media presence and like i feel like one of those things where like people in at the top of cycling. Don't take kindly that kind of stuff. Like oh you have your own identity. You have your own thing like It's not really. He's he's current british time trial champion. How could he not have a job. That didn't make sense. And it's job security to have that right if you have an audience and a following. Then you're bringing value. You would think that organization you would think but yeah alex was like pitted meal a professionalism and like there's a couple of other guys i think this guy jesse surgeon. You didn't zealand kid when i got to that team. I think it was twenty or twenty one and he had already had an olympic he already had an olympic silver medal or something which is crazy. That was not taylor phinney Jesse we had to been kings. One of the bank kicks is currently on. Ntt i think under the couple of other like really really good guy so i stepped into that team and i was like well. I kind of fell in between was like the guy that were being prepped for pro tour and it was the guys that were kind of younger and kind of getting in and i kinda just fell between your talent and in kind of understanding of what it was but there was such a culture shock going from what rock racing was and what my idea of being. A professional athlete was too being on this development team. And not only that we did. Our team can't with radio shack which was as time and while we're separate like being in the same building same hotel and kind of seeing how they interact having bike fitting the same time them. It was kind of like this moment. World like whoa. This doesn't seem that tight. You know what i mean. This doesn't this is not what i thought it was so it was because of the like the energy and the vibe energy by the whole thing. It was so stiffened so boring and no one with knowing so happy last real happy. 'cause lands lands but everyone else kind of felt like there were like just there. You know what i mean like. They're like there because he had to be there rather than like they had the best job in the world. I mean which is like to me like traveling the world and raising your bike and get into these amazing coffee shops in fantastic restaurants. Like i thought that was what it was. I thought that was the life of cyclist. And kinda like this reality check where it wasn't that at all. I mean it wasn't going to these parties. They were given away xboxes that it wasn't you know what i mean. It wasn't there. I've the cobblestones. It wasn't like do we jet to new york year to race a private jet. I never flew private before. I remember being like not gonna ask me. Turn my cell phone task. I'm a text okay. Because i can That's what my experience on. Rock racing wasn't then to go to live strong which was the development team to radio shack. Which looked like this team that will like soul boring and so traditional artists. Like i know. I've got to know how long how long were you on that team a couple of years a year. I was on a national team. One year which i raced in europe and i was wrong for one year and i just when i went over to you. I was in europe for two months and after two months i was just pulled the plug over i was like man. Like people must've been like what are you doing. Yeah i think so. I think something that. I the year that i pull. The plug was pulled the plug and maybe like may and think that i should have just gotten through that year in europe but i was just so over it was like nah there was no life over there and you know be growing up in south central kind of understanding that you live this life of of having to be very careful and like not really being able to enjoy being a kid. Because you're always looking over your shoulder and you're always making sure you're not in the wrong place at the wrong time when i got over europe and i realized that like felt worst. You know what i mean for more. I came from then then living hood i was like. I'm not gonna do this. I'm not gonna conform myself to where i feel like i have no voice. I feel like i have no value. i'm not gonna live here and be treated a certain way to say that i'm pro has to be another way and nobody in that situation that you can share that perspective with our you're coming hundred percent like all the kids all like the american kids that were over there with me. At the time. I wanted to be european so bad. You know what i mean. They want it to be belgian or dutch address. Breaking away like hundred. No that's exactly it. And like i was so it was hard to hard to communing escalades. Yeah it was hard to communicate with them. It was hard to understand why they were willing to not say anything or or hard to understand why it was that the way that one can. I just like now. You know what there has to be another way if there had been no rock racing and you came up with a more traditional outfit and then went to europe different like you got on spoiled. No one hundred percent. Yeah i would have probably just like i would. Maybe i would wouldn't be in sport. I think i would..

"What the vibe is that that all depends on like the first Break racist down into like section like the first ten minutes. Oh kinda just feel what's happening and how people reacting the next twenty minutes you're looking at if the peleton is awake and if they're attentive or if they're lazy because if they're lazy to stay forward because you you're gonna have to follow more if they're attentive you can kind of sit back and chill and be like other races fast like nothing's going anywhere at the end of the day. Most races most criteriums average. Twenty eight twenty nine miles an hour. So if we're riding. If i'm looking down on my computer and i'm seeing twenty eight twenty nine miles an hour. I know that someone would have to be crazy strong. Plus you would have to have the right group of like six guys up throw for it even to have a chance so like yeah you can be kinda chill in that moment and then like the the toward the end. You just have to start watching the big guys. 'cause you're like okay like we're forty minutes and we're forty five minutes in now. I know there's ten guys maybe that can actually do something in this moment right and then once that window passes of like you know they had a ten minute window to do something or a fifteen minute window do something. No one's done anything by that time. My teams are already kind of gathering the front and now they're going to control what the feel does so it's like it's pretty much the same cycle and while we're capable of racing races in different ways like i i'll look at the race from the beginning and feeling got feel it out at different points in kind of know how to react to that but having teammates who all know their role and working together as a unit seem so crucial to that success right. Get your lead up. And then i'm looking at you in two thousand eighteen like winning. You know winning these races without any teammates. How does that work like racing without teammates. You have to be more attentive but you have the right to your strength like i'm pretty fast. I'm i can sprint sprinter. So what i can do better than anyone else. Do eighteen hundred watts for you. Three seconds people. That don't yeah. I can do a massive effort really quickly. And that's how i'll race because if i close the gap super fast. 'cause i sprinted across and you're not a sprinter and you're behind the even if you're all my wheel the amount of effort that it's going to take for you to stay with me. Cook is going to cook. And if i can do that effort twenty times thirty times most people there max wattage is like twelve hundred watts. So i'm right across something. Eighteen hundred watch which is significantly more even if all my will you're going to one hundred ten percent to try to close the gap where it was only eighty percent for. Then you can dial it back and recovering. Dial it back yet. They're recover and not only that. I've pulled you out of your comfort zone now so like now. You've done an effort that doesn't suit you and you have to try to recover from it. Takes much more out of apple so on the opposite side of that it would be like me writing all day at like threshold. I'm not a threshold guy. Not a guy that's going to ride this medium effort all day is gonna kill me and then i'm not going to be able to sprint the end. But at the same time. Cycling is the only sport where sprinters races that go on for our weight class category. It's it's a super weird space. Yeah like yeah. 'cause i'm hundred eighty pounds. You know like. I'm racing against guys that are hundred and forty outright hundred and thirty pounds like once the road goes up. It's like a very big disadvantage to have to carry that weight up in over a climbs and it's always something. I thought was kind of weird. But you know cycle is great because there's different there's different in different things for everyone different kind of raises forever but yeah like you have to survive those as that bigger guy so Now at that's why you have a team because like on a daylight that is just someone else's day and we do our best and i'll do my best. Put that person into position. Because i know my role is when we show toll road race if i get selected for the team. I'm like oh my role is like protect the guy kinda use my knowledge of racing to just position them right i. Can i be in position. Ten times out of ten. And if i can do that and have my g my climber on my wheel before i get blown off the back of your job well done. I can be proud of that. And i can go. I can hold my head high if that guy gets a result because like i did my job in putting him in the right position to do well on that.

"Yeah there's there's i mean when you talk about culture. There's there's like traditional cycling culture and there's like culture culture right and you're feel like you're you're like reimagining wear those two worlds meet and part of like legion extends beyond being this cycling team and this kind of You know way of of mentoring. Young writers from diverse backgrounds to get into the sport but really kind of like this aspirational brands. Like i think i read somewhere. You were like this. I wanna be like you know what supreme is to skateboarding. Yeah be that for cycling like like having a really strong sensibility like fashion sensibility. Culture sensibility and when you see like the kit it's just fucking dope the best you know definitely and i know you're into like everything from the type face and the color schemes and all of that and what you've done is like really cool like when you see it stands out and it means something and i think that makes people excited about cycling a new and different way but it also has a life kind of almost outside of cycling just culture at large so and that was that was the whole idea behind it being legion the los angeles and not like some racing team that goes fries to meet some title like that It was super important for me. I grew up in south central. La where there's like. And i loved graffiti growing up. I used to draw graffiti and always been into typography always been into fashion so again it's just being true to of my vision and understanding of what i thought could bring more people in. I think the first step in in making someone feel invited to something like making aesthetically pleasing tonight. So that's really like we're we're acid when we're coming up with with the name the title and everything and kinda just the persona and and look of of of the team. I think it's gone pretty. Well we've been able to. I don't know how but we've been able to definitely kinda maneuver. Where like a whole lot like hoodies all the whole thing. Not just cycling. It can you. Can you even by like the red white and blue kit that you are. You can't earn exactly. You can't even get a kit with like that. Looks like the teen kit. It's like one of those things where i wanted to keep that special right. So you can't get a legion kit or bibs right now you can only get like the support. A kid is what all because like there needs to be like to buy an nba. You can't buy an nba jersey at the players. Step out on the floor with a high and cycling to me. My personal opinion is that like every person has access to everything and it creates this mentality. Were like people think that because they're riding the same vigers you. They deserve the same respect as you. But you're than thirty hours a week on the buying another like ten hours a week in a gym in there. You're like eat an oatmeal breakfast. Doing all these things to be this professional athlete. And then you have. There's this attitude that elitist attitude within the sport where everyone kind of feels like well have same bike as you have seen. I can buy the same stuff that you you worked your whole life. You know like now. And then to me i feel i could just creates this kind of understanding that like. You're the work that you put in your whole life. I've been riding through those thirteen right the work that you put in your whole life. I could just pay for like there. Needs to be some kind of separation from what the pros can get versus. What your everyday consumer could get. Yeah i think that's a lazy old marketing tactic. That a lot of brands use where they're like. Oh the pros ride. You can also ride it. But i think that's an cycling that's created this world or people kind of just walk around with kind of a big head because they can do Yeah i mean you see people out riding are in the kits of all the teams yards away whether somebody's legit and that's crazy because i think it's great that you wanna represent a team like the same where i represent the lakers. I was you know we lost last night. I was in my jersey super mad. I think that's great. But i have a swing man jersey right. i can't. i can't step onto the staple stadium and and go shoot. Shoot a basket so it's just like there. There needs to be some kind of. It's really good. That people wanna wear team juries stuff and represented the team that they believe in. Because that's what leading this to us right. it's this it's this opportunity to create A platform that is similar to a franchise that we've seen professional staff Sports right the lakers the cowboys the etc. This is my town. This is my city. This is my team kind of thing but at the same time we have to make sure that there's that separation that these guys that are spending their whole life trying to get to this level feel special doing right. We got knocked robinson over here. He's got a similar thing with black roses right like we joked earlier like i was going to ask him for a black roses singlet. And he's like no you you know you can't just get it right. Yeah yeah no total tangent but like can we talk about the f. like palace what is going on its own porn man. What is what is up with. It's one of those things where people love or hate it. Which i think is perfect like people when you make something that is that kind of left field people should love or hate it and she'd be very powerful emotionally on one side of the other. I don't care what people think about the kid. I like the kid. But i don't care what people think about the kit. It's about what it means for professional cycling to kind of have that collaboration with the brand that so mainstream and has like such a powerful kind of vibe to it and for them to interject that on the top level. I think that's extremely important for the sport moving forward. I mean i'm an old man. So when i see it like my eyes hurt back. Like it's a british skateboard streetwear brand right and the idea that like cycling team would collaborate with that kind of with that kind of company. I think it's cool. And it's rougher right like yeah same brand new. it's like. I said it's super important to like these next steps of kind of like creating change in cycling breaking tradition in cycling. It's it is a very important move as a power move from in education. I because they did it on at the girardi. They should the tour boat right. You know whatever But it's it's crazy to see that happen. Because i can't recall anything and i think that it's it's not being hailed as as big of a deal as it actually is because we've never seen anything like that happen in cycling anyway. I mean for better or worse cycling so much. it's so rooted in tradition. Some of which is super archaic. And there's something to be said for some of those traditions. But upending those to modernize it and like broaden the aperture of the sport to make it appealing for another. You know younger generation. I think at some point every cycling is running into a ton of issues as far as like the age group that is consuming it. Now yeah right. At some point you have to move. You have to be willing to change in evolve to continue the growth of something and it just feels like. Sometimes they'd aren't paying attention at all to growth and getting a new demographic into it. Is there any sport more fucked up than cycling Not that. I not that i personally know i only just. It just seems like they cannot get out of their own way. I don't think they want to Cycling is very much a sport where the people at the top are fine with making what they're making and they have all of the controls. Well we're gonna do it our way because we can. We don't like it. We talked about this earlier. Like it's not about everyone winning. It's about us getting what we want. And then keeping it that way so that we have full control over in cycling. There's this massive fear of losing control. But you know at some point you have to let things go with with me and with legion. My god understand legion is like a small brand right now to get to a point where i wanted to outgrow me. I want it to be like this thing. That's that's so big that i have to like reach out for help. Or half the like distribute parts of it. We have to break into different things like. That's really a cool thing right. Because then that means the reach of aid is going to get bigger and bigger and bigger yeah. I think that's super important. I think that's lacking in cycling right now. Well i wanna get into the disruption of the sport. But i think people are watching or listening who are like super rooted in you know. In what cycling is and isn't it would be helpful to kind of paint. The picture of what professional cycling is all about like from the insider's perspective..

"Anyway enough said this is an important and enlightening exchange. And i hope you dig it as much as i did and it is with that that i give you justin williams all right man. Justin thank you for doing this. I appreciate it no problem. We had a little bit of a false start the other day. No everything's on zoom right now van of my dad my dad but i appreciate you make time over the weekend man. I've been looking forward to this for a while. And or he's i'll i'll in two thousand nine so this is like i used to live out here so it was like a nice little blast from the past like they're doing a firm on a out this way i love it as much as i can Usually there's not sco and fills which is kind of this really cool build into the offseason suffered through. Both of those are pretty close together. Not usually having generals like cookie fonda. Thanks i usually suffered through those and those kind of our the wakeup call to be in like you should. You should probably training right. How how's training been lately like what's it like doing what you do in this covert era. It's been odd with the fires and everything like we you know it. Was this kind of stay ready. So you don't have to get ready for situation in the beginning of the year to the middle of the year and then summer starting like. I doesn't look like any going to happen. So we took a little bit of a break. younger brother And it just feels like it's things upon things happening where it's just you don't know what kind of training you should be doing right. And then when the fire started off we had just like actually started getting into those slow base miles and then yeah end in that. Kind of kelly's out we're to go to like utah then happen Manila fires kind of summer down. So now i'm just like suffering through these. These these days of training should have started. Maybe a month ago right two weeks ago. There's no racist though. Are i mean the francis happens euros going on right now but are there. Local creeks and things like that going on right now or no. No man like the organizers the s nca kind of dropped the ball as far as putting something together like to kind of. There's been this hunger for wanting to do something. I we have a lot of group rise where people were starting to to kind of collect At but there's been no. There's been no racing minor racing no discussion about racing. Nothing yeah at least in california makes it hard to stay exactly what right. And what about the rest of the legion crew like. Are you able to keep that together and keep them engaged with everything or it's we have a lot of fun. We have like a group chat kind of the. You know these like a little small things that we have where we try to keep the guys engaged or at least like communicating with each other. We're we you know. We built the team with the idea of having this family In guys that we really believed in from our past And we saw the team was small. Started from nothing so a lot of people had to buy into the idea because we didn't really have a ton of support And that's the vibe that we have as a team so it's it's pretty easy to like just have conversations about stuff that's happening and cycling ideas that people have We are able to kind of grantham voice when usually when you're on a team he do your job and you ride your bike and this kind of the gist of it but because you know we have this kind of open platform where the guys are more than welcome took i give suggestions and voice their opinions and everything like there's always something happening guys like. Oh we should do this or should think about this. And that's made that ends with to have made it bearable right. Yeah yeah we're always we're always getting into something. Yeah well legion of los angeles is super cool. Like it's very inspirational. What you've created what you've built in kind of what you're lording over right now and the idea at least it seems to me is two fold like is taking a stand for athlete representation in a broken system. We were talking a little bit about that before. The podcast and the second is being voice for inclusion and diversity in a sport that is in desperate need of a pretty strong injection of that right now. Also i mean. Are those the two primary things that you think about. Yeah i mean there. I think those are two most important things or my driving forces right like being an athlete being in that system of kind of how teams were set up and structured That are obviously weren't working and having friends that have quit the sport because of that understand the culture that i come from and how people view that and then trying to put it in front of people that come from where i come from in a way that they can digest it and kind of pull inspiration from it and be interested in it. You know what the old version was and what we're trying to do with the team. Now just really clashed right. I'm just wasn't. I knew that we have to do things in our own way in our own voice in our kind of our from our own perspective to to really Help diversify like representation and important is important. A standing on top of the podium and being in these races and showing is a one thing but also bringing that culture and showing that culture and showing people that. It's not like this this thing that you have to conform to be a part of right. That's also really important right. You right when people come into something that they don't see themselves into and they don't and they feel like they have to be something else. Be part of it. You know a lot of time.

"Let's have a little dose of reality out of seven hundred and forty three riders on the world tour. Which is the highest tier of professional road. Cycling only five. Riders are black. An out of the hundred and seventy-six cyclists in the recent tour de france. Only one was black. One guy kevin raise that to be. Frank is bullshit and its institutional paradigm in the cycling industry that justin williams hell bent on breaking with eleven. Us national championships and fourteen california state road and track championships to his name. Cycling is truly injustice blood at a young age. He showed a rare aptitude as a sprinter crushing credits throughout the state as a teenager and eventually becoming the junior track national champion and a member of the national team in two thousand nine. He joined trek. Live strong you twenty-three. Their dev team racing with world. Famous pros like ben king and alex dowsett but despite his success and his unbound potential the obvious next stop was the world tour but instead justin became disillusioned with the elitist aspect of the sport. He quit the team he went home. He enrolled in college for justin cycling. It seemed was but it was his younger brother. Corey also making cycling ways and local races at the time ultimately lured justin back into the sport through fifty racing culture. Justin found himself newly energized. And also discovering this renewed meaning and purpose on the bike as an athlete who still had racist to win of course but also as an advocate on a mission to redefine the sport thus was born legion of los angeles in independent elite cycling team that justin founded dedicated to increasing diversity and encouraging inclusion in the industry it's bad s team of super talented racers of varying ethnicities backgrounds who don't necessarily fit the status quo of the current whitewashed cycling program so this is justin story from his experience growing up in los angeles to immigrant parents through his blossoming. Love affair with the bike. It's also a dissection of the cycling industry as a whole and dialogue about the ways lesion is breaking barriers and setting a new standard when it comes to supporting athletes and promoting inclusivity. Justin is a guy who is wise beyond his years. He is passion in motion and one of my cycling heroes. also really the embodiment of persistence. And this i think powerful reminder that what is most important about sport isn't wins snot podiums or the instead it's really about this journey towards self actualization and the impact that you leave on others and it's also about enjoying the shared. Experience was an honor to sit down with accomplish. Athlete and inspiring activists. Oh and now the lead. But knox robinson also popped into quietly. Hang in the wing so that was very cool anyway enough said this is an important and enlightening exchange. And i hope you dig it as much as i did and it is with that that i give.

"You don't know dubbed the eighth most influential person in the sport. He's a guy who walked away from the world tour early in his career to carve his own path and has matured into not only eleven time national champion but more importantly the founder and manager of legion of los angeles. Which is this very cool cycling team here in. La that serves as a critical voice for inclusion and representation in a sport. I think it's fair. To say is in dire need of reinvention and re imagination. His name is justin williams. He's super cool. His story is incredibly powerful. it's instructive and it's all coming up in a couple of sex but first a few words from the folks that make this conversation possible starting with bleakest longtime listeners. Have probably inferred that learning is super important to me. I trust that since you selected this podcast. we're on the same page. But the truth is outside of the very rigorous and time consuming amount of prep and research. That i put into getting ready for each and every podcast i personally find carving out extra time to glean new ideas to be a little bit of a struggle but here's where blankets comes in the must have asked for anyone who cares about learning anybody who was committed to learning but doesn't have a lot of time.

"So in America's the running man, we're all just watching somebody go through the gauntlet to get the final rise I fucking love that movie. Along along those lines I think that's part of the reason why when someone gets wealth or gets power in this country they fucking. To it with their teeth and nails because it is so hard and there is that attitude I mean, my my family comes from immigrants but like two generations ago. But when they landed in America, they were like everyone's getting a job I'm gonNA. Make sure my kids are taking care of my kids are getting jobs everything and it's like that became the attitude of that generation both. The immigrants that came here, and then like you know fourth generation Americans were like take care of your own and that's like all that mattered for a long time because like I think that's like the divide between like millennials and boomers or Jen's Ian boomers is like boomers were like I did everything in my power to make. not this country better but to make a better life for the kid who lives in my house and I didn't care about anyone else which was the. Several generations before that, no one cared about making a good life for their getting. You know what I mean. So that's an improvement but these days it's like. Who Cares my kid got into the school my kids GonNa, get this good job. Yes. Everyone in my neighborhood is floundering addicted to opioids this that the other thing like all this shit is hitting the fan but my kid got into a good school and they will get a good job granted hopefully they. Won't be drafted into the water wars of two, thousand, twenty, eight or whatever. that. So I think that attitude has got to change to where we're going to have to start looking to our neighbors and shit and be like. Well, what's the best choice for like twenty people rather than just my one that lives in my house I mean. You can say what you want about China, but they look their outlook on like government projects that they do is like fifty years. Yeah. Toilet Twenty to forty to fifty years. I remember sixty minutes did a story on these empty cities that China had built. That was back in two, thousand two. Now, all those cities are filled, right? They know exactly what they're doing. Now I'm not saying wish willing China all of saying is that we have such a short. Time Horizon for everything that we're doing and so hard to plan for everything, and again, it goes back to just like these fraudsters. If you could rationalize that I'm doing this for my family that I'm doing this for the kid at home that I've. The rationalization that happens through capitalism and that legitimised through just business in general is how we've like have this breeding ground of fraudsters not just in America but around the world. You made me think of something the Iroquois. Native Americans, they had this thing. Where they They wouldn't make a decision. There's there was always someone who's job in the tribal council at least this is what I've heard anecdotally whose job was to think about seven generations from now whenever they made a decision that would affect the tribe someone would have to be like. Well, if we do this now seven generations from now that might not be sustainable, and so then they would choose something that would work for that look like that's some fucking brilliant at the one thing they didn't have in mind was white people. In this country, we're going to live here. That was one thing they didn't foresee I guess. They're like they rented that apartment to that lady. Yes. He seems like a good tenant. He brought some trinkets James Chris Columbus. He says the only GonNa be for a little bit just get some spice and get out of here Holy Shit there's more of them. All my ultimate Jansher fires, just fucking Europeans landing America and put a starbucks here. Put A fucking Shell gas station here. Let's FRAC here. Let's sell. Let's have fucking Justin, Williams put parking everywhere. Let's do this. Yes. Those parking lots of I'm going to get capital together. We're doing it. Investing parking lots as like we're phasing. Phasing out cars is such a wild. The. The ultimate fraud I feel like that we're currently going through is I just keep reading like as we're learning more and more about taxes and health insurance and shit. This. Money itself seems to be a huge fraud like created by the people who have it that make to make money seem more important like. The idea. I'm just really come around to and forgive me if I'm just you know about to have a hammer and sickle or call me comrade or whatever. But I'm just coming around to the idea that. Health Insurance being attached to employment is a way to make you never quit your job. No matter how shit he they treat you 'cause they're like, don't you need instantly you motherfucker well, get out there and work for your insulin get out there and work for your fucking chemo like that's crazy I'd ever. It always made sense to me is like I gotta get it. I didn't have health insurance until I was until I got common law married to my now wife but we had lived together long enough that I under the like. When legislation came through for gay couples to have like domestic partnerships so that they can give each other benefits I benefited from that for the first time talk about fucking straight pride is like. Straight. What's privilege? I'm like, ooh, river faked get that'll help me. Thank you. Thank you for your fight lgbt community. I'm going to also get health insurance out of this but. That's fucking crazy like. If you're like my mom needs to retire she's working too hard but she can't give up health insurance because she has so many conditions. She's.

"What should happen with UCS Xavier this year. That's true. You know I'm I'm sure he's he's enjoying some some nice weather out west. Maybe he's in a good way we can get him to lay in. So you think the game's going to be played. If I had to pick right now I would say Yes, I lean towards the game being played and the only thing I would be more confident about is that we don't get like a public spat between between brandon and steal because if they don't play the game like either way, that's just a day on twitter I'm not going to be there like I've already vowed to not be on twitter on election night I'm not being on twitter, win an ounce, the status of the crosstown shootout whenever it's going to be played in especially if it's not gonNa be played. That's the story of twenty twenty though right there's probably been more days not to be twitter them. They're having to be until you're exactly right about that I appreciate the insight and you let me get worked up as always. Thank you so much. Definitely. Thanks. Justin Williams covers the UC sports for the just play the game I mean legitimately. I, I like the the level. UK thing I, you know Chris Max Hesitancy to have Kentucky come to the center. No. One's going to be there handful of people are gonNA be there cuts into our home court advantage. We have to go back to rob UC's in a very similar situation it's less than than desirable if you're since if you're if you're. If you live in the United States, you've had to deal with one thing being canceled after the other and one thing not happening that you look forward to other. There is a way to to manage this to the satisfaction of everybody were at least the basketball game is played. Come to that conclusion come to that conclusion. To not have the game at all would be to me complete abandonment of leadership on both schools play the damn game. I couldn't get opening day this year. We've had limited. You know things that you could actually look forward to that actually happened. We're going to have a college basketball season. Play the damn game. And it's not it's not being unwilling to understand the positions of either side. I really do your UC you're going to play Xavier near building maybe it's going to be there maybe it's going to be half full. Then they got to go back and play Xavier at the CINTAS center and chances hopefully by then you know the ten thousand plus for allowed back in, and that's that's not great and I understand Xavier's position is what play the game and most people don't care. They don't care about your posturing play the damn game. Nineteen away from five o'clock update on a couple of things including an increase of attendance bengals games, and what I've. Long said about AJ Green I really hope to start to see Sunday we'll do that next ESPN fifteen, thirty San Antonio not the same thing I, say, not at the Fisher. The Fisher. House I know is a huge part of recovery for somebody like my husband for them to know that their family members are being taken care of that's a huge burden off of them. So they can concentrate on their therapies just having that assurance that no matter what is long as we were there for Anson that someone would be there to take care of us. It took so much weight off our shoulders out. Can you help go to fisherhouse? Dot Org..

Hurricanes' Williams stepping away from NHL

"Hurricane kim justin williams has decided to step away from the game end quote. He's not retiring. I'll reduce full. Statement is the first time in my life that i felt unsure of my aspirations nations with regards to hockey for as long as i can remember my whole off season until this point has been hockey in doing what was necessary to prepare for the upcoming season because of my current indecision indecision and without the type of mental and physical commitment atom accustomed to having i've just i've decided to step away from the game. It's important to me that the focus of attention is on the current very talented group carolina hurricanes assembled as they prepare to build on the momentum in growth. We established last season. I think the assumption on here guys is that he's just going to probably come back later in the season. He's probably gonna get healthy. I mean he played late into the season last year thirty eight years old the recovery long it's a long season and he knows mentally i mean you gotta. Give them credit. Read it mentally. He knows he's not there so he doesn't want to go out and try it when he knows he's not there but if i was a betting man i'd say we're going to see him later in the season and it will be almost be like a free agent pick up by then. I think you're dead on i._r._a. Makes total sense to me. I'm just wondering if it's definitely going to be with carolina right. I mean you don't you don't really know how plays but it certainly seems like no matter what he wants to to play at some point this season but say carolina's having an awful years. You're gonna come back to them when they're out of the playoffs who it's like i think i think we'll see him somewhere. Though and that's good i mean he adds so much that team last year. <hes> the whole the whole season was surprise and i think that his play it wasn't a surprise in that. He thought he could do that but it was just he's still able to perform getting holder. Do he's played a lot of games lot of even that league. The games gotten faster faster. He wasn't necessarily known as a great skater when he came into the league and it's only gotten quicker and quicker and he stayed there because of how smart he is how good he is with a with and without the puck and then in the locker room guys love them so i i think it's great that he'll still play if he wants to and i understand after this long of a time and being in the position. You're if you're not ready to go after a long season. If you have the chance to someone assign you if you take a couple of months off as long as you're staying in good shape skate in which he will. It's a great situation for i think as a genius move and you mentioned how much hockey this guys played with. I mean we we. I usually count playoffs. Games is like playing two regular season games hundred fifty five playoff games keeping my two-thirds of those games. Those playoff games have been played in the second half author's career so in the last eight years nine years here. He's played a lot of hockey man and when you have a rap sheet like this guy. I think you have the right to be able to say hey listen.
