"So again, there have been a lot of opportunities in the last more than a hundred years for any team to do any of these things in the razor on quite the level right now. Number one number one is important too. So we saw 42 year 282 day old Nelson crews on Sunday baseball last night of an outstanding game. So we had 6 RBI becoming the third oldest player with 6 RBI and game younger than only called bisque in 1991 and Barry Bonds in 2000 and 7 and for context, there have been more than 2300 6 plus RBI games since RBIs became official in 1920, so to be the third order on that very long list and then incredibly impressive and I love this. So he had his second home run of the season. Last night in his 5th game that he has played. He is the second oldest player with multiple homers in his first 5 games of a season since 1900. The only guy older to do that with a 44 year old bricky hundred when two home runs in this first 5 games in 2003 for the Dodgers, but the way those games came in July, not April. So I think it's been established on the podcast that one so does your favorite player, the maroons now, I think have become your favorite team, Sarah. Before you go, just need to run this point of etiquette past you because it's been established on the podcast that you're the nicest person in the world. If you were in an airport as I was earlier today and the person sitting nearby was suddenly in the midst of an ugly breakup loud breakup on the phone, would you move closer to that person, try to listen in, maybe even tape it, videotape, and put it on social media. Sarah Abbott has revealed to us that's what she would be likely to do, or would you move away and try to give that person more space? I would not give you the respect to serve for that. I mean, I'm sure we would all enjoy the video. I would most likely see, I appreciate that. About being nice and all of that. My core, I am a New Yorker. So I would probably be standing there giving kind of like, you know, aggressively staring kind of look the like, are you serious? Is this really happening right here? And I would definitely be a scooting away a bit. So ultimately I would move away from this situation, but certainly be uncomfortable. I would like to clarify, I would not record it. But I would definitely be eavesdropping the entire time. Okay. I knew that Sarah Lang said, you have a good information, good opinions on everything. Thanks for doing this, Sarah. Thanks so much for having me, boss. I hope the rest of the travel day is a bit less of an example. After the Padres blow out of the braves after taking three of four in that series, Nelson Cruz was on SportsCenter with Kevin Connors. Nelson all this talk about sono and bogarts and Machado and tatis in about two weeks. What's it like at this stage of your career to deliver like this on a big stage? Awesome. Anytime you can contribute to get the W, as always nice. 461 career home runs for you and you've won an ALCS MVP. You've been there and you've done that. But we're all always learning Nelson, what have you learned hitting in this incredible lineup? Well, we have such a lineup. We can all do damage. One through 9. And every day we have different lineup and we find a way to get it done. So it tells you how deep the lineup is. Yeah, Nelson, what's your role on this team? Whatever they ask me to do, you know? I'm here to help. What exactly does that mean? You've got a lot of young superstars on this team. I talked about him Machado and tatis and cronin worth at other players there that could use a veteran presence. What does it mean to you when they say whatever it takes?

"Getting a medical check up today at the Walter Reed national military medical center. There's been some interest in the health of the 80 year old president, the oldest in history as he makes plans for an expected reelection campaign after his last exam in November of 2021, doctor Kevin Connor, who's been Biden's doctor since 2009, said he was healthy and vigorous and deemed him fit to successfully execute the duties of the presidency. That is Associated Press reporter Jennifer King. The search is on for a tuskegee airman's belongings that disappeared decades ago. Linda Turner, along with his twin brother, Leon was a tuskegee airman who racked up awards and became one of the first black military pilots in the nation. His daughter, Dolly, spoke with our news partners at NBC four. It was very proud to be a tuskegee airman. I'm not sure that any of us could have really endured what they did, but still were able to accomplish so much and maintain the smile on their faces. Many of his medals and awards are missing after they sold their family home in northwest D.C. about 30 years ago. Dolly and her sister tracked those items to loan Jack Missouri, where they were put up for auction. Now they're hoping that those items can make their way back to where they belong in order to keep their father's legacy alive. It really is has been very heartbreaking not to have access to those items. We have a great rich family history. And that's why it's so important for us to get these items back. The auction house said they passed a message to the buyer, but can not disclose who that person is

"Interim president says they are showing signs of improvement. Muhammad Hadi at the United Nations Syria could face dangerous outbreaks of disease from the devastating earthquake that hit turkey and Syria. So far what we know is that the death toll have exceeded 6000 in Syria. We're hoping that this number will not increase by much, but from what we're seeing, what we're hearing, the devastation of that earthquake is really not giving us a lot of hope that this will be the end of it. The United Nations estimates more than 5 million Syrians across the earthquake hit country could be homeless.

"And I love having them in as hosts for the halftime segments because I think not to take away. Like I've been Kevin Connors is freaking fantastic. Kevin the guy a fantastic. But they're not Kevin might be. Both Kevin's, they might be, but there's a lot of people they put in those roles that don't know what the hell they're talking about. Kevin Connors is pretty active with the mid major stuff and I think he really knows what's going on. And the Gandhi will always call me throughout the year and hey, you know, like if he's interviewing somebody on SportsCenter, he'll call and we'll spend a half an hour talking through some stuff and so he works at it. He works at it, but he's coming straight from college football. That's hard. I will say it is a cool aspect that they can have some guys who are covering the sport also hosts. I think that is cool. That is. The hardest part for me. And I don't watch a lot of it now. Obviously, I'm running around throughout the NCAA tournament, but I've said this over and over and I know you got to be politically correct on this one, but nobody loves Charles Barkley more than me. Nobody. The dude, years ago, probably the coolest moment of my frigging career was I walk into a party in Indy in the back, like a Tam Tony Romo, other people, and he literally comes up and introduces himself to me. And I'm like, wow, wow, huh? So like, I love bark. Every time he sees me a wave, whatever. But I have a hard time watching him and Kenny Smith and some of these other people do games that haven't really covered the sport all year. Again, the general fan probably doesn't know the difference, but the true college basketball fan knows. You've done how many games you think you did this year. I counted. I did 80 games. That counts on bulls, but I did 80 games this year. That's insane. Plus 15 studio for big some network. Yeah, it was a lot. The most games I think there was one season, believe it or not, I went to a 120 games. That's amazing. I mean, that's like a game every night. Well, you do want a lot of empties. I would do multiple empties, fly around, not have an off day when it's Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday. I might do like Charleston, tomorrow, and hopefully. Two or three events at Thanksgiving where you see like 30 games. And the week before Thanksgiving, you can do both. And that's what I would do. I would do the week before, do one empty, the week of one empty. You got it. You get a site for the first round. First and second round so that gives you another. I would bounce back and forth. About back and forth to four four two two. So right there, you've got 12. That's the only way you can do it. You can't. You got to have those instead of the one offs aren't going to get you to over a hundred, really. You have to do empties. But yeah, I just feel like, honestly, you're selling us short. The true college basketball fans, you're selling short by putting on the Barclays, the Kenny smith's, the Reggie Miller's, even the grant hills. Like how many games is Grant Hill watch it? I'd rather, I want to hear Clark Kellogg. I want Clark Kellogg there with Jim Nance and Bill raftery. I do. Think about think about who's doing the radio. I mean, you've got,.

"Good evening. I'm Ron Burgundy, and this is what's happening in your world Tonight. I want to talk about the critics Choice Awards. Which has been moved back Like a lot of the other ceremonies. They shifted a little bit to the corner virus in 2020, and it's the 26th annual one. And it will air on March 7th on the CW at 7 P.m. Eastern time with host tae digs. Some of the presenters are gonna be on stage because of course we're gonna be dealing with. The pandemic still, but some of the nominees are going to be appearing virtually at their homes. So it's gonna be a little bit of a different critics. Choice Awards of you've been watching those in the past. But Justin idea to keep your eyes open for that is gonna be in about a month On March 7th on the CW at 7 P.m. Eastern time. So you want to Tune in. I'm a voting member of that organization, so hopefully you'll see some influence from me and my awesomeness out there as well. The next piece of news. I want to talk about it. Couldn't you see Humors? I don't know if it's humors or more ironic, and that is the whole thing that happened with stocks and game stop and read it. This Week. Now here's the thing. I am not a hedge fund manager. I do not understand the stock market Super Well, I'm not. I'm not heavily invested in the stock market. And I also don't use read it. So this whole thing happened outside of what I was watching and it's. It's one of those stories that kind of blew up, but to really understand it. You gotta have to have an understanding of the stock market and it's making a lot of people on both sides upset. You know, there's some people that are very upset. It happened because It disrupted normal trading. But then there's other people that are happy and disrupted. That normal training is because it puts a spotlight on the kind of training that was being done, which is selling being short. I'm not an investor, so I can't give you a full discussion of what selling short means, But it essentially means you're Basically predicting them business to fail. You're you're predicting the stock to go down and you're taking advantage of it in such a way that you profit from that? And and as I understand it, these people on reddit use the platform to basically build up stock that was being shorted by hedge funds and to the point that some of these hedge funds went out of business, which Here's Here's my just my personal take of it because, like I said, I don't have a horse in this game. I look the same if the system is has a vulnerability like that. Maybe there's something wrong with the system. You maybe the idea of selling short isn't a great thing. I you know, people talk about the American dream and about how you should build things and that's what we do in this country. We build things so Making a lot of money off of things getting destroyed than I I think is is questionable. But you know, I like that. I don't work in that business. But I can offer you a couple movies that you can watch to get your head around this and obviously the one that a lot of people have referred to is the wolf of Wall Street. Which explains how the stock market works in how people especially people. Either with a lot of money or access to a lot of money can effect and manipulate the system. Another one to watch would be the big short. Which is more about the financial crisis that happened over 10 years ago. But the reason the big shorts important is because it's about these people who essentially bet against the U. S economy and became very wealthy because of it, But it's a great movie that explains How shorting works and how the stock market works in a lot of the intricacies to it, because instead of like the wolf of Wall Street where you've got Leonardo DiCaprio discussing it with Matthew McConaughey hey, in the big short, you have Margot Robbie sitting in a bathtub, explaining it to you, which is much more engaging for somebody like me. There's also another one to watch would be trading places. 30 some years ago, 40 years ago, almost trading places came out. It's about an insider and an outsider in the stock market, who used the manipulation tools to being corrupt their competitors in this and why would they do is illegal. Ultimately, there aren't a lot of questions about the stock market that, you know, are things legal. Now there's two other movies that I think are interesting to talk about in relation to this hole. Gamestop fiasco. One of them is capitalism, A love story, and I know it's a Michael Moore movie and a lot of it's got problems. I'm not. The movie itself is in a great movie, but it has a nice Section that talks about How there is a real world trading and investment system for negative things that happen in particular capitalism. A love story they talk about. How this company took out basically life insurance policies on their own employees and made the employers the beneficiaries. So if these people died, they got the money in the morally questionable practice of that, and that happens under the under the radar of a lot of people, but that was interesting. Look into some of the ways people find what I would consider maybe not illegal but sleazy ways of making money. Now on the same note, there's another movie that might want to watch and that one's pretty woman all the way back to 1990, Richard Gere. Julia Roberts If you recall Richard Gere's character He plays a businessman who buys companies and chops them up and sell them for parts, basically, and that's how he became fantastically wealthy. There was a harbinger to some of the things that we're seeing now, where if you're basically making money by being destructive, there is a prophet in destructing things. And that may not be a good thing. I'm just saying, as Americans, we build things as Americans. We create jobs. We don't dismantle them. And and I think that this is a nice way to put a spotlight on how some things work and how they may not be the best things. You're listening to fact eyes at the movies with Kevin Connor. That sound means it's time to roll into the trailer park.

"Um, but that was the thing about Justin. You know the experience of being able to okay, you're hurt, but you're still over the thing and you're stable and and he did not show that he was hurt. He was able to Survived that storm. That's part of the growth of a fighter that was there and I knew and I said, You know, he was gonna have to try to slow that first round down and we just couldn't go out there and, you know, stand toe to toe and, you know, do what Chandler did with Connor, because that's just that's suicide there, and you saw he took Connor down. He was kicking Connor, and that strategy was brilliant. No. Doing what Vulcan off. He did that Max Holloway taking the legs out from under Connor and, you know Hey, if you can't push off the throat, throw your strike that limits the big weapon economy. Gregor has and those kicks are brutal. And he really hurt him with the kicks And I think that shut up What happened later in the fight, right? He chopped him down. Those were unbelievably brutal kicks. So after the fight, Kevin Connor tried to shock the loss due to quote in activity. What do you make of that explanation? Well, you know, I buy it to it like maybe 10% level, you know, I mean, Conner, um, you know, before the fight, he's talking about his time in Port Portugal, and, you know, a 10 week training camp, and you can't have it both ways. And he looked great. He fought a good first round. Um, you know he am and he won the first round on pretty much everybody's card. I don't think any public, you know, Thought Dustin one that first round You know, so I thought he looked good. He looked like we expected Connor McGregor to look so I don't really say it's in activity. I think you'd have been better had he been active, but his timing was good that that's the thing that you normally lose when you don't fight this time. Just timing was good. He was connecting with us. And so you know, I think it was more You know, Dustin had grown more. And here's the difference. Not the corner isn't a good fighter anymore. Choir still in the elite fighter Before he was the quickest guy in the division and had the fastest hands and division and maybe he's dropped on half a night. And that just brings him back into the pack. And I equate it to like golf a couple years ago when Tiger Woods first came out, and he was driving the ball 30 40 yards past all the other guys they realized. Hey, this guy spit. This guy you know, can swing it move his body the way we can't. They went into the gym. They started working fitness became part of the routine and they started driving the past him and they were able to compete with him. And I think what happened is corner who's now come down. Other guys have gotten better. They realized he was the standard. They worked hit the standard he was had. And now the gas that existed between him and other guys isn't there anymore. They're more even. And I think it makes for some really compelling fights. Haven't I always my guest. All right, Kevin. So to that point, he the other fighters have closed the distance between Connor and themselves. Inside the cage. Then there's the issue of what's going on with Connor Outside of the cage, For instance, you wrote quote he's worth around a quarter of a billion dollars orm or due entirely to his ability to beat people up while rig ailing them with one liners before he does it, he has everything he could want in life, except the one important thing. Peace and a quote. How much do you think he desires peace? Could you see him walking away from the sport as a result of that desire? You know, like it's always dangerous. The play amateur psychologist, and that's kind of what I was doing there. But, you know, like I know Connor fairly well and for a number of years now, and you look at it him and his life is so crazy and you know, I made the point. It's like, you know, he has a secret service detail out when he goes to the grocery store, right. He can't go anywhere without 50 people with him, and it's just such a you know, a drain on you mentally and I think you know he would love to have that. You know where you know he would love it. So if he was popular when he was fighting, and he was anonymous when he was not, But that's not how life works and you know with social media and you're out there like that. I just think that you know there's a part economy, Gregor there says I'd rather have the normal life than what I have now. I've made so much money. I've been so successful. He has that whisky business is doing well, and people don't talk about his clothing business. But a clothing business is doing really well. So Connor is in a in a great position with the amount of money that he has with the business that he has that I think you know he looked he He's gonna look long and hard at that say, Do I want to go through? Life of a fighter because it's not a fun life for a lot of time. You know these guys love to fight, but they don't necessarily love to do all the grind work that it takes to get ready to fight. I said Kevin one last night. Do you think that there's anything that took place on Saturday night? It would encourage her bead to end his retirement. No. And I said that you know when he retired? I didn't He come back, And I just don't think Habib looks at Dr Conner is his peers and I think you know, he looks and says, You know what? They're not in my class. And I think he's right. I think he'll be. There's just, you know, on a, you know, a whole other level from everybody else out there and, you know he's that kind of got. He made a commitment to his family. He was going to retire. He kept that commitment and I think we'll continue so I don't think we'll see her be back. Even though Dane has been putting a lot of pressure on him, you know who'd be but then resisting, and Dana said at the post fight It doesn't look good now for me to come back, and I I agree with that. I don't think we will see him back. Kevin. I only covers boxing and then made for Yahoo. Sports. Good front of programas. Well, Kevin. Thank you so much. Great job is always always good to have you here in the jungle. Thank you Appreciate about. Thank you, Kevin. Have a great day.

"And just like that breaking news from the NFL this from Adam Schefter just moments ago in an arrangement the two sides have discussed and mutually agreed upon. The Detroit Lions and quarterback Matthew Stafford are expected to part ways this offseason. Detroit listening to trade offers for its former number one overall pick starting this week that, according to league sources, telling Schefter it is prime time on ESPN radio and the ESPN happened on your smart speaker by saying play ESPN Cris Carlin, along with Emmett, Golden and It's funny that that should come just now, as Schefter reported just a few minutes before that, that Anthony Lynn is likely to be the offensive coordinator now in Detroit, So Matthew Stafford gonna get traded this offseason. And in it your immediate reaction to that and to how that could possibly work out, not just for the lions, and if they're going to go look to draft somebody right away, but also for the team. Possibly or teams interested in Matthew Stafford. Well, when you heard that they were gonna change their regimes, and you know, coach and everything you wondered what would be the future for Matthew Stafford. Now we know the first thing that jumped in my head was the coat. Come on that, like it just makes sense, You know, just like, makes perfect sense. That's the first thought I had. The second thought I had is. How will this affect the shine? Watson in his effort to get out of to get out of Houston? Because now he's not the only quarterback you know, available right now. Yeah, and I agree. First of all, let's discuss the cap aspect of it. It is not that difficult to trade Matthew Stafford. From a salary cap standpoint, he is under contract through 2022. And by treating him away before June. 1st alliance can they'll have a big dead cap number, but they'll be with a new head coach and a new quarterback willing to absorb that they'll save 14 million. By trading him before June the first. Secondly, I'm with you, I think if I'm Carson Wentz and I thought I was going to get may be reunited with Frank, right? Maybe that's not quite what now Maybe if I'm another team like the San Francisco 40 Niners. I'm gonna look Maura that a Matthew Stafford, then I am With those other guys that might be available. So ah, Lot cooking. We're going to discuss that Maurin depth in just a few minutes, But I gotta tell you One of the first people I thought of last week when the Buffalo Bills advanced to the A F. C championship game was the guy who joins us right now in studio Kevin Connors giving us the straight talk. Brought to you by straight talk Wireless. No contract. No compromise. He is with us on the Goodyear hotline and let me tell you something. When the Bills won that game last week. You and a couple of other friends were just a few bills fans that I know that I thought of right away with all the pain that you have been through since those houses and days of the mid nineties not get over the hump. You're getting closer. Is it nerves? Is it happiness? What is the feeling on the eve of the A F C championship game? Well, Chris, number one. It warms my heart to know that I was one of the first people you thought off. Number two. The pain aspect. My therapist can speak to that over the past 26 27 years. What was the feeling? You know? I'm going to be honest with you. I was in studio for for both of the playoff games. Doing college basketball hosting last week, and I've got the same feeling this week. It was it was a calm confidence. Now, the first week against the Colts. I'm in studio with Danny Manning, one of the five greatest college basketball players of all time, right? And Danny's probably been in studio with us, maybe two or three times and by the way, could not be a nicer guy like everyone says that about people, But Danny can't be a nicer guy. He's sitting next to this maniac who's living and dying on every bridge in incompletion that we throw or every two yard run by Devin Singletary, right? So we sweat the game out. We get to the end of the game. It's probably five o'clock in the East. Ah, half hour later, we get the call that Bob was shoes. An addict by tells microphones are working that Danny and I are gonna have to call the Florida Kentucky game 30 minutes later. So I go from total mental exhaustion from rooting for the bills through their first playoff win in a quarter century now having to call AH Kentucky Game on ESPN, So it's been a roller coaster in this postseason, but it's been a lot of fun. Now, Kevin, you've been described as a bill Super fan, So I have to ask you how many tables have you dive through our been put through? That's a great question of it. You know, Here's the funny thing about that. That's kind of like a new thing, and I should point out. Chris knows this. I'm from Long Island, right? So I'm a bills fan from Long Island who grew up in the era of the parcels. Belichick Giants. And you know, and the Jets as well, So I didn't. I'm not a Western New Yorker, though. Those are my people, but I've been through zero tables I feel like that's sort of a new phenomenon. I will tell you. It's an experience like no other going to a game in Buffalo and non covert times. And it's such a deserving fan base like I mean, I know you're having fun with this, But like this fan base, you know everyone talking and they were the best fan base. I mean, consider consider The history of this team, four Super Bowls, an incredible run, but for agonizing losses in a row. And there were some lean years in the eighties. And there were some lean years in the 2000 and 20 tens and this fan base has stuck through it, and I'm just so happy for the people in western New York, who are finally getting to cheer on a winner. Kevin Connors, Bill Super fan with us. Go ahead. And yet now, Kevin, I'm a Browns fan. Okay. Hey, I'm there with you. I'm there with you. So I know how much it would mean for the Browns, you know to play in the NFC championship again. If the Buffalo Bills win the Super Bowl, will you jump through a table? But I'll take it 11 level up there. There. There may be OK. There may be some flames on the table. I mean, you know I'm all about that's what I'm talking about, because I will also tell you this much of it. There will be some beverages consumed. All right. So listen, if we get to that point, all bets are off. And and by the way, haven't you know what everyone talks about the Browns and that Great jersey with all the names on the back of it? Let's not forget. Let's not forget my team. All right in the post Jim Kelly era we've had. We've had JP loss. Hman we've had Kelly Holcomb. Friend Edwards. Alex Van Pelt. Ryan Bram. Nathan Peterman. Todd Collins. I mean, this is this is not the east wing of Canton here, you left out. Roger, Rob. Rob Johnson. Relatively speaking, Chris, Right? I mean, you know, S O. Ryan Fitzpatrick. Think about all the money that you've doled out to quarter and draft picks and you don't look, it's that's what it's the perfect J manual. I'm sorry. I'm just keeping the.

"Last two years. It appears that Meyer has found a good place to start his NFL journey. He holds a five in one record against Georgia at the Jaguars T I a a bank field. For ESPN. I'm Michelle Steele now will be interesting to see how urban Meyer navigates the job and the elements of control in particular. Remember this clip from Jaguars owner Shad Khan back in January, 4th about roster control for the immediate future. I'm going to keep the roster control and I want the coach to know that also, and it's really It's not too really who's coming in, but it's to really have a rhythm. That everybody's aligned on who might be leaving the team and who might be coming in, at least for the immediate future to another coaching vacancy filled now, this is what Keyshawn Johnson had to say on Keyshawn J. Will and Zubin a few days ago about the Jets coaching role. I think it's ah, great opportunity for the Jets, Toe, Get a up and coming young coach reminds me a lot of Rex Ryan in Herm Edwards, the calm of Herm Edwards. But the fire Rex Ryan, the last two Head coaches that really have major success for the Jets are both defensive minded coaches. So I don't mind this opportunity. If that's the direction that they want to go in, where is a position specific opposed to a CEO type? And maybe he turns more into a CEO type running the defense and gives the offense Somebody else's stays away from it to be successful as a head coach of the Jets hiring well, Keyshawn help me pick my lottery numbers, because that's exactly what happened. The Jets have hired former 40 Niners defensive coordinator Robert Sala. The news was broken by ESPN senior NFL insider Adam Schefter on Twitter. Both sides have reportedly reached a five year deal. Here's Adam Schefter on SC with Kevin Connors talking about why the Jets went with Sol in the first place. They loved his energy. They love his outlook. I love this perspective. He loved everything about what he would bring to this particular job. They sat down, and from the time they sat down with him, they were enamored with the energy, the spunk, the intelligence that he would bring to that job. His players loved him in San Francisco. His players loved him in Houston when he was there you saw after the Jets announced the agreement with him on Thursday night, Richard Sherman said the New York Jets got themselves a great one. Those Richard Sherman's words, Richard Sherman knows a thing or two about coaches. And I think the Jets shared an opinion and that's why They gave Robert Salas of five year deal Rich Cimini on ESPN dot com, wrote that Sala conducted a virtual interview on Friday, then flew to New Jersey for a second interview on Tuesday. Sala was in high demand as he received upwards of seven interview requests from different NFL teams. Sala will replace Adam Gays who spent two seasons with the Jets in the Master. Nine and 23 record back to Adam Schefter on SC With Kevin Connors now commenting on what this higher means for quarterback Sam Donaldson. Here is what I would expect the New York Jets to do a quarterback this upcoming season and again they'll be organizational meetings to discuss this, but I would think that Sam Donald is going to return. As the Jets quarterback and the Jets will entertain offers at the number two pick. I think that they could sit there and take an offensive tackle. They could sit there and take a water Seaver. They could do whatever they want with that pick, But right now, I think the plan would be to proceed with Sam Donald is the quarterback of the New York Jets in 2021. I think that Joe Douglas and the staff believing him Robert solid believes in him, and I think that they'd like to give Sam darling opportunity for a full season when he's healthy with a new staff. You see what he could do? I would be surprised if Sam Donald, We're not the starting quarterback on opening day at 10:30 A.m. Eastern. Today, Greenie will have Chris Berman on to break down all the news here on ESPN Radio. SportsCenter all night. ESPN radio That's.
"kevin connors" Discussed on ESPN Chicago 1000 - WMVP
"All, the chip Penis that these guys up. Wait a minute. Now we're seeing a little bit of drawing and some some issues with Martin with wheat. And now here we go, Jake Muskrat. And Tyra Suite are starting to shove each other and you don't need that guys just get off the field, And here comes Zak Hansen, the offensive line coach. He is coming out and trying to get in between not Dave Evans and Tyrus Wheat. We had a big interception in the game, and now we have some pushing and shoving again. Hold your tempered all now they are going to get into a fight. This is so unfortunate as the two teams are gonna go at it. Goodness gracious, They are all over the place and throwing haymakers punches. What a what a very disappointing way to end the game. Our thanks to Bruce Howard in the Tulsa Lear field. I m g radio network and we give thanks to Tulsa because Mississippi State's radio. They had gone to commercial, even awesome. ESPN. We had gone back to the studio with Kevin Connors and Trevor manage and we did not see this take place until it was happening. And in fact midway through that was the very beginning of it this brawl and we can go ahead and call it a brawl. It was a brawl between Tulsa in Mississippi State. It went on for a good 10 minutes. ESPN is Trevor marriage was in studio watching it all with Kevin Connors hasn't unfolded well, I've been on the field when things like that were happening, and it looked to me like the words may have been uglier than the blows that were thrown. Is that things started to develop out to the right flank. From the pulsar perspective. They were talking. And then all of a sudden guys just went nuts on the pulse aside, and somebody in look like a coach or an assistant of some sort on Tulsa just went after a Mississippi state guy, and that's when the whole thing broke loose. Now there's no excuse for that. But I'll tell you what things get really, really ugly in a situation like that, and emotions get high. Having said that, I will tell you this about football. I hear a lot. People say that football players are just on the edge of committing this kind of stuff right there, not football players, actually when they do it right, because I say this over this brawl when they do it right there actually more physically discipline Because football's You can't just go smash somebody. You gotta wait there at the line of scrimmage, and then you've got a little ball of staff. Do your assignment. If you don't do it exactly right your flags for it right. And so there's a then you have to stop on the whistle. And so you drill this tens of thousands of times over your lifetime. It's the cops, and it's the kind of thing that you should be able to control your emotions. You should be able to cruise control your physicality. So why Why didn't they control it? In this one? It was the words I would love to hear. What was being said, because what was being said, overrode those tens of thousands of reps in disciplining your physical violence that you get is a football player. What was said. Now that there's no excuse for that. Never an excuse for that. And is it incredibly bad look, But there's a there's a big picture is to see what tip those guys over the edge, But we will see how it all transpires. You get a cab in winter with you inside of our studios at a college football night postgame show again. We're breaking down and kind of gave me gave me the ending to the Lockheed Martin Armed Forces Bowl between a Mississippi state number 24 Tulsa that was ESPN College football analyst Trevor Mattered. She was watching the game in studio. This was the bowl game that preceded our bowl game, which today was he got his own Liberty Bowl, Mississippi State. Wins 28 26, but it was an absolute free for all a brawl between Tulsa in Mississippi State. Sucker punches were thrown cheap shots. Cheap kicks you can you break this down like this? Approve her film as much as you want. You are going to find some young man on each team making bonehead plays and bonehead decisions. Mike leads the head coach of the Mississippi State Bulldogs. His team won by two. He spoke with ESPN televisions in Fitz Simmons when this was all sending Done, including after the brawl. I'm not sure what exactly caused that but, uh, you know, you know that Zach. There was some before the game to wave never had any problem with that the entire season. So you know, I mean, I can only guess without seeing the film, but I know that part of this game. We've never had any trouble with that. What's your message to the team having seen that afterward? Don't do it anymore, You know? I mean, yeah, I mean, well, it's just dumb, you know, And then there was some of that stuff going back and forth in the course of the game, you know, and You know what any of it on our side I don't want to see because I feel like I got shorted What? 15 yards 30 yards on deals where? You know if we just keep our mouths shut, you know. A scars your slide this season and playing in a game like this going into next year, finishing a season with CO Vered your thoughts on what you learned about your squad? Maybe even yourself when it when it comes to finishing a year that we just have Well, you just gotta be persistent and adjust. You know, it's the most important thing a Justin be persistent and you know, we had a young group, so we had a lot of space to grow and And improve and we're still a long ways off, but we made a lot of progress goes good to see you. Congratulations on the win, but obviously the lessons learned after the game. Well, I mean, this is a football game, so we're not gonna be tearing cloth over this deal. I mean, You know, somebody went to a football game and somebody got head. I mean, you know, there's a point where I'm not gonna lose my mind over but I got it. I just don't like that. You know, we're undisciplined in some situations where I thought we if you control yourself mentally emotionally, you put yourself in a better position that was Mike Leach being interviewed by infant Simmons. That was also Mike Leach, the head coach of Mississippi State of Man who would not seen the video seen all the high angles and the different angles of his players and told the players Both of them. Sending sheep shots, punches kicks You want to say Check out kicks Number four on Mississippi State gave a karate kick to it. Tolson player who was down, then ran away doing a lot of 43 sprint. Mike Leach may have something different to say when he gets the full blown look of that video again. That was Mike Leach immediately after what transpired in his team's victory in the Lockheed Martin Armed Forces Bowl 28 to 26. They took down number 24, Tulsa. In more ways than one Kevin went to with you. Inside of our studios are final today and the goggles on Liberty Bowl one heck of a game.

Medtech Talk Welcomes its New Host
"I'd like to take this opportunity to introduce the new med tech talk host as well as give him an opportunity to share more about his story. I'd like to welcome Jeff Pardo partner at Gilda healthcare. Hi Jeff. Welcome to the MED tech. Talk podcast thanks worry. I'm not sure. I'm totally deserving of that introduction does very nice and I'm really excited to be hosting the show Awesome Jeff. Can you share a little bit about yourself your background and just also how you got into this industry absolutely? You know it's interesting I. It was not a straight LINE GETTING INTO MED tech at Brown University. Where I went I was a history. Major actually. Didn't take a single science class. I took some economics classes but they were a really boring and I really didn't have any interest in it and But I also recognize. That really didn't want to be a history professor and I didn't know exactly where history would take me so I started exploring after graduation. How to get into business in my first job was actually doing oil and gas consulting of all things and other areas. That hadn't really no idea was doing but I actually was born. In Latin America was put on teams that ended up working in Latin American oil and gas and had a terrific experience and that was my entry into business but then my initiation into midtech really began with sympathies and that turned out to be pivotal to my career development. Why is that well? It's funny Cynthia's was at the time. People probably know now that Cynthia was bought by Johnson and Johnson huge acquisition. Like twenty billion dollars. But at the time Cynthia's while it was reasonably large it was still run like a smaller company founder That owned a majority of the company was really able to shape the culture in the way that he wanted to shape it and part of that was in really tight relationships with clinicians In particular he really mandated that everybody spend a lot of time in the operating room working side by side with clinicians. That's actually not so easy anymore to do in the current You kind of regulatory environment. But at the time we were in the operating room all the time and and it may be realized that I wanted to contribute to innovation on a larger platform in effect companies. In many different medical specialties. So is that how you got into? Venture capitalists yeah exactly so I went to Ward and after Wharton I had a chance to work with cardinal partners. A general healthcare venture firm in Princeton New Jersey and then ultimately went to spray venture partners back in my hometown of Boston and Really was lucky in both cases to learn from some amazing mentors and entrepreneurs in their own right brandon hall. John Clark Dan Cole. Kevin Connors all. These people had a tremendous impact on me and it was really an apprenticeship for a business that you can't teach in a classroom. How South at spray was some of the most. I think important experiences for me. In terms of how to get company STAR WE START ABOUT HALF. The companies in our portfolio with the entrepreneurs filed patents in many cases for these companies but one of the more interesting experiences with solutions which we had invested in the CEO. Step down unexpectedly in two thousand seven and actually. I remember Juliet a backer. Who's now longitude? But at the time was with the peak. What approach me and said she was on the board and she said. Do you want to run this company and I was just you know pretty young guy but I said yes and that's an important lesson for me as I got through microbes. Even when you're not sure sometimes just say yes. That thing's usually important learning experiences. Come out of it and that was an amazing experience because we took a product that was still in a prototype stage yet in the clinic in the early clinical trials. We will find it into a very slick procedure. And we brought it into a full-scale pivotal trial and the device itself was working really well But we also endured a lot of funding challenges. Two Thousand Eight to two thousand eleven is listeners to this podcast probably remember was a very difficult time in medical devices in in particular for spying. Pma's and unfortunately we weren't able to complete the project ended up selling Globus in two thousand eleven and it was not a financial success but so many lessons came out of it for me. I'm sure so. What did you do after that I went? I went back to spray for about six months but during that time also was introduced to the folks from Gilda healthcare and I never met anybody from Gilda but got to know them and really appreciated their strategy of jumping into us. Med Tech at a time that a lot of investors had rotated out of the segment. Why is that well in two thousand eight? There was a financial crisis so that was a time. When you saw pullback from a lot of things but also at the time there was a lot of issues with a regulatory frameworks in Med tech. It was pretty onerous or difficult relationship with FDA issues were reimbursement. Were starting to crop up and a lot of Investors were simply hadn't really had the depth of background in Med tech and didn't know how to navigate some of those challenges so they ended up rotating out and guilt a really brought a fresh perspective in they saw the great products had been developed and the ones that were surviving really were worth investing in and so the last nineteen years For me personally has been an amazing journey through all of that you know. Through the ups and downs of medical devices and through seeing now public market emerged for venture back a device companies which really enables some of these companies to stand on their own two feet rather than than sal out to a bigger company in there's also whirlwind of challenges and opportunities the regulatory and reimbursement landscape shifts. Yeah then you're kidding when you said it's not US straight line. That is quite. The journey enjoyed every moment of it. I mean not that there haven't been really difficult times with various companies but really enjoyed every moment. It's incredibly challenging business. But the really what makes the difference or the people in our business and how dynamic people throughout this business are not only the entrepreneurs and investors but the clinicians also that are really on the frontlines implementing what the engineers are companies Do so it's really cool to be around. Inspiring people on a daily basis and that is a great perspective to bring to the MED tech. Talk podcast yeah when I was approached to do this You know it's exciting to think about what you might like to bring out in a podcast like this and for me really is kind of what I been referencing in terms of individuals their stories and my own story knowing that it wasn't a straight line to get here the chance to interview people and hear about their stories the experiences that shaped them as they were growing up as they were getting into med tech And really understand you know what makes them tick the things that they've learned that have made them successful and the really tough experiences. One thing I'd like to do is highlight failures in our business and the ability to come back from failure the ability to turn around situations. That's something that's not celebrated enough in our business. I don't think people sometimes hide from the more difficult experiences or doesn't go on their resume necessarily and I'd like to start to you. Know I have a small role in changing nat in bringing a spotlight to more difficult things because we learn so much from those experiences. So you'll hear me some of the guests that will bring on. The show is really understand. Kind of what? We're situations that they failed in and what came out of that in the hopes that you know people listening to To the show will really be able to grab onto something and maybe it helps them in in the situation that they're in and then we'll also tackle some of the big challenges in the business whether it's reimbursement regulatory commercialization what it means to take a company public but it will really focus on some of the guests that we have lined up
