And ultimately was that statement about how there was a restart and it was close to being at the one yard line.

Unfortunately for happening for the big 10 And the sentiments, although they have not been expressed publicly yet.

Nebraska players' lawsuit seeks to restore B10 fall football
"Postpone their games and watching A number of baseball teams, including the Tigers do the same thing. Tonight, and then we're watchin Nebraska come up with this lawsuit. That seems like kind of a minor story, But I'm thinking that this one's going toe I'm thinking Jamie is we finally thought that we were over talking about the big 10 playing football here in the fall and that we were going to Look more at the winner and I'm starting to practice in December and playing in the NFL stadiums in January and what that could look like, and yet, you know, this time bars Through Angelique put the emojis of the popcorn and the In the surprise faces Hey, is on this Ah lawsuit as well and that big 10 attorney Ooh hoo! Instead of diffusing any kind of like there's nothing to see here in exactly the opposite. And for people that don't know what I'm talking about. There's a big 10 attorney when it came down to these eight Nebraska. Players that are suing the big 10. The attorney for the conference. Andrew Luger argues that The harm would be incredible. At the board of director documents were made available to public. Just because the eight disagree with the decision, he said. The court is asking for something with no president. I think that, um What I see something from public universities that say the harm would be incredible. I think there's going to be AH, more suits filed. And that we're going to be able to see what, um You know, transpired with the emails and the communication between Kevin Warren and the president. Now you guys know that They're they're emails are public. They know that the communication you know, it's potentially there for the public to be able Tio. You know, get their eyes on. So you know, I doubt there's anything like salacious in there, but I know where it was, and they just keep talking in generalities. And That they have lawyers by their side. Always when they're communicating with one another. When they thought about Hey, why are we shutting it down? Now? Let's just stay with the unknown. Now, you know. It's interesting that they just don't reveal it anyways. But now they're playing the The harm would be incredible if we showed what our reasons were. You shut everything down on the ball. I know that it seems odd like I get it. That they did. They made their decision because of safety and I know that we've talked about it and everybody's head's ready to explode. But This is the story that continues like to show that that's a big 10 know. What are we talking about A couple of days after that, although there was some transparency that people wanted. This is the the opposite of transparency. What the big 10 attorney is saying about releasing any of the info and the information between the commissioner and the president. They're trying to seal this up. And that's just not gonna happen here in 2020 when you consider The big 10 players and their parents. And the other league still being out there as much as people want the story to go away. It's not going away. It's Ah, it's

"The most disgraceful and negative president in the history of Ohio State University the worst president in the history of a University of over one hundred years. He steps in and brings up Kevin Warrant brings him to the table. I Guess Kevin Warren Killed The interview did great. That's great. People interview well sometimes and doesn't mean they're competent or good higher and Michael Drake begins campaigning and pushing and lobbying to get Kevin Warren. The job over Jim Phillips Fast Forward To August Twenty, twenty and Michael. Drake just drove the stake in the heart of Ohio State football one final time albeit from across the country, he brings in Kevin Warren. To be the. The next heir of the big ten conference and he gets these presidents. To Swear Him in Kevin Warren Unknown Democrat Michael Drake Known Democrat I mean he donated thousands of dollars to Kamala, Harris Senate campaign in California. Thousands of dollars. So Michael Drake is as liberals they come. He wants president trump out more than anyone as does Kevin Warren So here we are August twenty twenty and the big ten can't play football because they want you the people to believe that Donald Trump is the reason he didn't handle the pandemic correctly he didn't he didn't act swiftly. That is why we can't play football and that's why you need to vote in November. The audacity. We know we know bread president trump's to blame. It's all his fault. That's why we don't have football and Joe Biden we'll fix it all and like I said before I'm not even going to get into politics on this show. Clear evidence facts of what's going on. Don't say it's player safety don't try to tell me that it's it's anything other than eighty percent politically motivated and twenty percent trying to suppress the voices and unity of college athletes right to amateurism keep them amateur. And really excited to bring Randy wait on program here in a minute to talk about that because what they're doing right now I believe has a astronomical impact on the future of college athletics and College Athletes Families just the simple fact that Kevin Warren comes out after the fact and again after he cancelled the season talks about these next couple of months or critical, these athletes need to get get ready to vote and Get Out and vote register to vote, and then he also when asked about his son playing an SEC has the audacity to say, well, we we had a lot of hard conversations we sat down as a family and decided that's what's best for him while robbing the right of Randy weight and his Family Sean Wade and his family for having the same conversation and making the same decision. It's absolutely criminal it's absolutely criminal. Enough about that I promise I'm GonNa move on eventually from that but I have to go through what is going on. I WanNa make sure that this is crystal clear. If you vote to unseat Donald Trump because it college football, you are absolutely just playing right into what the democratic plan has been all along. I'm not saying we shouldn't unseat the guy I'm not saying he should get reelected. I'm just saying if that's rationale you've been severely duped. So, let's talk about what the plan is. As it stands right everyone has plans I mean purdue presented a plan Nebraska you're here in a minute Sean Randy Wade was on a zoom call with multiple schools and their parents association about what their course of action is going to be part of that's going to be a protest on. Saturday. So make makes you check that out eleven am in the Rotunda. but the plan right now as it stands Ohio, state is trying to. Present this plan and Ryan as they've mentioned it, it's been public that they want to start the season in January, not a spring season in the the more I think about it. That's the only. Pseudo. Realistic. Chance of playing two seasons in a year I don't think that that's I still don't think that's smart or safe. This bullshit season in twenty twenty one in the spring or winter will be a jv season. You're going to hear it from Randy wait a minute when I asked him if Sean will play in a January season amongst justin fields and why Davis and everyone else that I believe will not play but you'll hear from him whether Sean will consider that or not in the second half this episode. So how state wants to formally begin practice after Thanksgiving practice all of December when students are home right in a pseudo bubble like environment, right? No students on campus and they'll be able to practice and prepare, and the season would start January first and all the Games will be located in Indianapolis Detroit and Minneapolis in the domes and just wild to think about we could crown a national champion in early January and then watch Ohio state begin their season. Because I. Don't know if you know this or not but they are pushing forward every day. There's new things that come out about schools that are now talking about their fan capacity they're not talking about if they're gonNA play when they're going to play or how they're gonNA play, they're talking about how many people will be allowed to attend the game as fans. So. We just a race all the people that are that are fearmongers in doubters thought this was just a ploy by the south to to you know prolonged the the chances of playing but ultimately would cancel it. We're proving that they were dead wrong always were wrong. These people are pushing forward to play simple as that and they're gonNA play. So it's just Really, a stain in the big ten's underpants. I mean you got skidmarks Kevin Warren in your Britches, and here we are no football in the big ten. So I'm GONNA be curious. I'M GONNA I'M GONNA jump here with Randy on the phone. So we can get his insight into this but I wanted to share that information with you before we got to Randy and. Just kind of let you know where my head was at what I've been hearing and what the I guess. The insiders in the Midwest are saying and they're saying Notre Dame's GONNA play how states not but here get with randy way right now on menace sports. I very fortunate here on Minister Sports have a big big name guest especially, not only just general but considering what's going on right now we have. Randy. Way Sean, Wade's father and a really an an activist almost right now for players advocacy and trying to get these players and families in really you guys heard ray how you doing I appreciate you coming on. The manpreet. Home Man Regular break with you about what's going on this weekend? No doubt. I'm mostly you know I think everyone is watching because this is so paramount and so wild what is going on and so you have been so vocal and you have such a unique unique vantage point right? You had your son was a projected high draft pick came back for one more year of development to try to boost his stock and this mess happens and So I think you have the most unique perspective of anyone outside of maybe one or two other kids that might be in a similar situation but I really want to get to to what happened here with with you go into Chicago and what's went on since then because what what what I understand is this there's a unification of parents going on multiple schools and Parents Association has been very vocal. You have been extremely vocal and I just am curious like all right in your mind as you go through this process, what is the goal? What do you think you guys can get accomplished and how do you think this you uniting with other schools is going to help. So I think, I will call a big Fan Passion. and. It's basically could narrow down everybody go. So we hang an put more pressure on the big team and our university president to see what at what happened and. How could we not just push back for October November? Rain a high. Arrives not while they're. Working. Right absolutely absolutely I mean that I mean I think everyone knows my opinion I, think you know my opinion I don't think this should ever been canceled I think they should have just tested the waters and see how it went and a little anything else. There's if there's an outbreak if it ends up not going well, you cancel it, you pull the plug I don't think pull the plug on something from the front end has there been any communication with either Kevin Warren or Christina Johnson the president of Ohio State amongst, your parents, and you know between the.

It's impossible to share the totality of what somebody says in X. Amount of characters unless you unless you sit there all day. Yeah, that's why I call it. The narrow casting leader, and I have for years is not. It's not it's not pandemic. Purge shutdown central park convenient. It's not rioting, protesting death or destruction and door the imprisonment convenient. It's the narrowcasting leader and this is broadcasting. I show twitter down simply because I wanna best focus on what we're doing right now, but like the last thing I looked at I can't remember where it came. It. It's exactly what I'm talking about. Where somebody and I can't even remember what it is, man and I don't feel like logging back on, but it was. You know you Paul. You're just attempted to shred me and tear me apart and and analyze who I am from somebody who I do not know. Yeah, okay, because of something that on the radio that I said within the last half hour where? Yours truly did not encourage those blowing up businesses, throwing bricks through windows, looting, pillaging robbing harming burning now. We didn't encourage that no encouragement. Now you when you're in this business main man, okay part of it is. Presenting thought or idea right to do so people's. So people can fake about it. Yeah, so when I say. I didn't see this Friday, but like thought about over the weekend and nine to noon is. Fine Radio so.

It's my opinion and I think you're with me. That the peaceful protest while it will splash for whatever the reason on the radio, maybe on the TV that Eve name and then next day it might be on. Yeah, was it effective I I'm saying mostly, it's not so then what is the next step? The some people believe the next step is to actually. Lee, potentially lead to destruction to open is to truly lead to change. So, I mean that's why you can just have this whole thing, man. You can have all now you. Just twitter. Social Take Open Go. That's all you that that for those of you listening now who granted do not have a microphone. Okay, and that that is that's that's Fiji. Fairness and job act okay that that is social media when it comes to attempting to be heard and make a point and hopefully lead to positive change. That that is everything. I understand that okay, it's. Eight percent Max for me of what my life is all about okay, and you know that because we've been together for a long time and I think I think you're the same way with me.

And I don't regret right at the end of the radio show posting a picture of a pillaged to Broadway clinic in North Minneapolis. And then saying that's good work friends, because now those in north.

Prophetic metaphorical pickaxe, and you're just banging on that thing and turn them. That Big Rock Little Rock's. Is that who you're going to be in a month or six months or six years and so on. It's a great question I mean you. You have all of these. I don't want microscopic not in the literal literal sense, but small interactions on a day-to-day basis, and again the the aspect of daily consciousness, taking advantage of all those small moments changing one aspect of your day that changes one aspect of another person's Day, and it's almost ripples in pool in terms of the potential effect, so you know this is. It happened when officer you Nez, shot Philander Casteel. It happened Jomar. I think it was Jumar Clark I. Think was the name of gentlemen. these things happen? They're awful. And then. For one reason or another not born of hatred now born of consciousness, we move on, and it's no longer the hot topic, and you mentioned you know incomplete thoughts and the Ebon flow of topics via social media, which is where we're just living in the comments section. What's hot today will not be hot tomorrow, and you could look back at your own time line. If you have the time and you could say wow. That was really important in the moment. Here's what I had to say two years ago. Here's what had to say about this three years ago and you can look at that, but ultimately they're all fleeting, and they move away and you move on. Clearly as we've seen throughout the the last five or six days for a significant portion of the populace, the issues do not move up. It's just they're no longer in the focal point of the masses, and that that obviously is it boils over and continues to not only you can look at it as a singular event, but what a volcanic eruption as one man has. His life snuffed out the way it did. It is terrible. It is awful. It is heartbreaking, tragic disclaimer indeed but the. We're now seeing protests overseas. We're seeing international reaction to it and the effect of of one man's life in leading down the road of. We can't look away from anymore. That's another that Kevin said. Hey, you see that video. You can't pretend that didn't happen. It's in your face and any leaving what you're GONNA do. And I think it's it's very. It's a very interesting question for for all of us. Where would we be in a month or ninety days or six years from now and it not just with the the George Floyd. Daf and the subsequent fallout locally, and now nationally, and to a certain extent internationally, yeah, as you mentioned earlier to me with London and another place. Is then and these again.

It's not in a way where we're going to lay this out here because we can't wait to get these phone calls and argue with people for or have people agree with us. It's not like that. But. When? The follow up. Part of the equation is presented. and. It's like you're loud now. You're sticking out now. You're condemning many now. You are looking for reasons to find somebody who may have made a small mistake or Not Mistake but did not see it your way on social media within your house within your business, or in your call to sack, and you're sitting back waiting so they so you can jump in, and some would say jump in and attack somewhat also look at it as Opening is and. Taking that that pickaxe and banging on that Boulder, and trying to get it into little rock's, which would lead to change. This potentially would lead to change, but this can be with faith. This can be with you know now now. When when when it comes to addiction or whatever it is whether it's drugs whether it's alcohol whether it's nicotine whether it's eating, whatever it is see that the the the physical peace in this situation would be different. The one I'm talking about now, but the follow through obviously is very key. You know like like profile by Samford. Man, you know you're you're to sixty and whatever are to set well whatever you were and bone. Thirty forty pounds required follow-through now. Obviously, it's markedly different. disclaimer time markedly different than what we're talking about now here, but if you don't follow through, you fail. And that's what I'm saying. In any aspect of we can, we can hit profile by Sanford for two weeks. Drop eight and feel like we're good, but. Do you continue to follow through with that lifestyle? Change right mentally while being where your heart is now where your thumbs are now where your mind is now what you're looking to achieve now. What's the follow through? What's the follow up? Where are you in a week? Where are you in a month? Where are you in a year? See I think that's very very key. When it comes to life changing situations, world or nation, changing situations, and truly making a difference within your covenant so I mean I. It's it's okay. We got these microphones. I mean we're not like Al Kevin said. We're not leaders, but some would say because there are. Are Tens of thousands listening now maybe more with the vast ever expanding smart speaker radio network that Yes to a certain extent, even if it's point one percent, we can be considered influencers, and not everybody. Has that ability okay, or has that as their job? Yep, but you can be a leader Andorra influence her within your house of three to ten to whatever influence her within your workplace, influence her within your call to sack, without being overbearing and two frontal and too confrontational, and that doesn't have to be with racism can be with faith. It can be with so many different things, and and the the follow up in the follow through. With where your heart supposedly is, that's very very key to me. And that left out left a a resonating mark with me after listening to Kevin Warren the first two segments nine noon, back around the corner. Here's what's GonNa Happen. phone calls in the next segment at least eight, hundred, three, two, zero, five, three, two, six, five, one, nine, eight, nine, five, three to six like I, mean you? You just think about what you're thinking about right now? Everything I just said everything on Nardo just said and consider that or I mean this may sound dumb, but like was anybody on the bridge near the semi when it came flying through. A tip anybody on that bridge. When that semi came flying through. Eight, hundred, three, two, zero, five, three, two, six, five, one, nine, eight, nine, five, three, two six. What was your weekend? Like with your kids like your teenagers, or you know your kids like nine ten eleven, twelve or whatever? What was your weekend? Like? What were the questions like? And and and how? How did you handle it within your covenant? and lead just thoughts on where we are as a state and everything that transpired since.

"A It's it's. It's tough to say. was there a point that resonated most or a lasting impression because I mean it was? Like thirty two minutes over two segments of conversation. But if we were to like go. Snap Kevin Warren something. He said Bom lasting impression CON-. Yeah, I think for me. It was the. The level of consciousness that is required to the issue on a daily basis, and so it will take ten years. It'll take a generation I. think you know in terms of. Getting over the finish line of an entire community of minorities who grow up under the pretense of negativity, and you'll learn certain things you mentioned you know his kid emulating him shaving in the shower. You learn what you see and so from from my standpoint will resonated with meters right off. The Bat was learning. What you see will require daily consciousness for all of us. Pushing, forward, and it will be an incredibly slow change, and it would be an entire generation. Of Change required so that kids growing up. And I hate saying the black. We should consider all of us in the same community can't do that it it. The following statements born of Lebanon News Hachette faith raise. It looks that way we respect all infected affected by the pandemic. We pray, and feel for those in the belly of during the rights and our community, we ask questions in search of answers and solutions problems that all of us, which your opinions based on sincere, fought and backed by our experience, not from a position of arrogance or politics, but humanity not to confront, but to converse. We are here to learn and help if we can. It's our entire. Section disclaimer it's not we'd. We don't do a jokingly. We lay it out, so it's their officially, and if you want to slow it down via the podcast or whatever to know where the hearts are coming from. Yeah, and so we don't have to build up so many things into what we're trying to say. You know what I mean, yes, not to have to preface back every single thing. Ultimately the the concept of growing up in fear is something that is incredibly problematic. It's incredibly systemic. We know that. It's unfortunate that for some of US including myself. You gotta get slapped in the face with it to go. Oh, yeah! That's the thing and it's serious, and you can't just look away from so you know the the daily consciousness I think that is required from what what Kevin said among all of those things, yeah, so eloquently as he does every couple of weeks. I think that's what immediately stuck with me what? What do you think this you know off off of what Kevin said? When it was framed up with with Kevin, when when it comes to routes to change and the balance of peacefully protesting in honor of a legitimate cause, and for a man who died with the rioting, pillaging looting, you know. How do you handle that? And then you think about it, you get many. Get loud about. About it with the roots, they have to get loud. Yeah, so that could be a household, a neighborhood, a business or more, widespread, potentially social media. Yup, well with whatever avenue you you WanNa go and you WanNa make a point and let people know where your heart is. If only for that moment, you know I can't. I can't speak for you here, main man, but like for me. Your radio and the ability to explain the totality of what you're say so you can, you can start if you want with the disclaimer, and then you can get into sadly inexplicably the death of George Floyd, the the police officer with the Neon, the neck, and our regis and heinous. That was you can lay things out from a totality standpoint so in essence the story. Has! Different wine has winding roads right, but it comes together because broadcasting with radio like right now we we can follow, nor does breadcrumbs throw the pandemic, and or through what? We've experienced Wednesday through right now, yeah! And you, you can pause and you have you have more time to to share things and interact actually when we take phone calls with actual humans with names talking to us as opposed to with all due respect, the at times hit and run nature of social media. Yeah, on a percent, so it's a series of incomplete thoughts is what it is the inability to connect all of those together, and they don't reach all of the same people every. Every single time, but and we don't judge at least I don't judge okay, so so the the thing is exactly what you said. Where if you put something via the narrow casting leader in in a hit and run age when it comes to the way I view for instance twitter. You're feeling something. You're thinking something you put it there and you move off. Yeah, okay, well in a riotous situation and or something that involves racism and emotions are. High and buildings are burning. The that that that the hit and run nature of it is not necessarily conducive unless you can sit around all day, just like chat with people. You know what I mean. Yeah with your thumbs, so so therefore in, but not everybody has the benefit of what we have here with a radio show on a and an ability to share the heart. And to frame things up and analyzed properly analyzed in our estimation, the totality of situations, so that plays into in my opinion, something that you just said man just try just just thinking about amplifying it or taking it a step farther or complimenting it. With with Kevin, Warren Big ten commissioner. Philanthropic. Tra- West, Dick Black unbelievably powerful. It's. If you are getting louder now. Via Social Media. Or when we open these phone lines ten minutes from now. Where are you going to be in a month? And I'm, not. This is not condemnation. This is not finger-pointing. It's a question. Is If your loud now because it's in your fish fishbowl. But it you can look at it like either the most beautiful little baby fish came into your fish ball, and there's something beautiful. That's transpiring because eventually it will lead to go global change or your fish ball has been infiltrated. By algae. But your fish ball. Yeah, and you know what it's going to be gone and it's going to calm. It's not going to be gone. Things will calm, and then life will move on. restaurants with outdoor seating. I think I think salons and some things have changed and open today. Yeah, and that will continue in life so my question you know for those who are as loud as they are about whatever the issue or the topic is, that requires change. You're going to be there in a month. You're going to be there in six months. Is it your life? Is it something where you don't twenty four hours a day. have to obsess and or focus but.

It's like a fan line day where things transpire over the weekend. Since the last time we chatted and so much has transpired. There's just so much to navigate I. Mean I can be like cop thankfully gets arrested. Friday night. Awful more businesses shudder. People Kill Lena people are killing the leadership talking about the governor down Saturday a win for the good guys. Averting battling the crime by floyd faith thousands cleaned up and delivered food and. To those pillaged on Sunday, you know, but now then you get to Sunday where you know unless I'm missing. Something I I. Think I think things definitely calmed again last night. Yeah, we've seen a significant and precipitous are ramping down of the negative activity so good and then approaching six o'clock semi truck guy on the bridge, everybody scattering, and you know the immediate, guessing and wondering and just like well. What was that? Why was that? Yeah, you know is that? That was was that was. Did that semi role under the bridge to like blow up and kill a bunch of people people were thinking that, and then on the other side of it like did the guy mentally and just get nervous and go pear shape and get confused, and he was in the wrong place trying to get out so I mean that that was something different. What the heck with that so like for you? How was Sunday different from Saturday? Well for me I. Mean is the National Guard has come out with the plan in process I. I just feel like in, and I truly hope I. Mean we're not? The tide hasn't turned on the topic of this issue and we've been. We've been hoping to some way we've are back. We've our way back to the a topic. Which is courses the? The death of George Floyd and you know the last two segments with Kevin Warren you know we, we learn a lot about the difficulties involved ultimately where everything has changed, and not a lot has changed over the course of time, as it pertains to race relations and the difficult decisions in and all the things that go into it, but just from A. Can we catch a freaking break here you know can. Can these business owners hopefully just go to bed at night and wake up and they can go to work this morning on a Monday and see that they're building still intact. In terms of. Calming that and squelching that sort of activity. So, much more positively to speak out out on a Monday and now you know I think what really needs to be focused on, and and appreciated not only the work of the National Guard and the police departments is they've. Worked to tamper things down from Orion. Perspective how about the citizens? How about the people coming out and giving I mean just the the beauty of from the cleanup efforts giving your time those giving money giving food I i. I just saw an article about so minneapolis churches getting in the mix I. Think you're you're you're out there yesterday? Doing some of that as well and so the the giving nature of the community. Everyone's kind of coming together right now over this weekend into a Monday. Amidst pandemic by the way, and they're saying okay enough is enough. Let's get people fed. Let's get this bleep cleaned up. Let's get our streets moving again and I think the beauty of the positivity coming from that was the biggest change in tied over the weekend.

"I I. I am concerned and I wanna make sure we got gotta get this right. We need a six. It We need to pray through it I'm concerned about the future of our country. I mean where we are. How much this? How much longer does this? Go On for this you know what to what level does it go through? So I think that we cannot overlook what we're dealing with right now. We can't underestimate it. We need to pull together. WE WE? We have to start you know walking the walk and talking to talk putting our financial resources together. We gotta make a change and we gotta do it every single error because again I just think people black people. White People are tired of of just the way from an institutional structure. Structure Standpoint that we've created has versus have nots, and we say all the right things in public, but then we get in our homes, and our our boardrooms, and and and in our companies that that our actions don't match our words and I think we need to give people a chance. We need to be loving regardless of your color regardless of your sexual orientation, regardless of your religious background. We gotta get back to the basics that we are people buying large all the other things. All of our scan, and where we grew up and and worshiped those those are just kind of things on on top of very important, but it's not the court that we are human beings I, you know we were all born. We all will die i. mean this is we weren't. We didn't just fall out of this guy and and this is a time that it's important for us to recognize that God has allowed us to live on this earth to put us on earth and we're supposed to be a blessing to other people, and that's why just. Just, challenge myself every day and others around do something for someone who needs help regardless of their color. Don't make comments. Don't say things around your kids around the dinner table. Don't use the N. word. Don't don't use other ratio after tax you know. Don't don't do that I mean we? We just have to We have to start. And we have to understand also the power of words, and and how we can change the world and again. Pa I'm I'm just confident that once we make our minds up and I think the the events of this last week. And of the last year the last couple of years people now have finally seen. They heard about it. You know we heard about you know immaterial and what happened to him? you know years ago? I talked to my son powers before he went to Mississippi State, so we all heard they'll store. We saw seen the horrific pictures, but it's another thing to see it live on video. This is this was not George. Floyd's death was not a video game. This was real life and to see someone literally take their last breath for no reason. Or no reason? it makes no sense and I think that was probably the end where people are white and black corporations small business. Teachers athletes have said enough is enough, and we're at the point right now. We gotta make a change and I'm giving you my word and then I will continually. Do everything within my power. To make a change make not only the twin cities a better place, but our victim footprint the United States of America the world and and again not being perfect at all so many faults as many faults as anyone else, and maybe more than anyone else, but I'm gonNA. Give You my heart. And My word that I'm going to do everything I can to to make a change and be part of the solution instead of part of the problem. If we do that collectively over time, we can get back to normal. We can't think that we're going to be back to normal in three months because that's. How are we love microwave ovens? You know we love. We love the quick fix. We gotta get this right and it may take ten years to do it. But this is about the rest one hundred to two hundred three hundred years of our country and the time. So Kevin when I use the words, underprivileged and or privileged I'm not gonNA tie, black or white. Jewett it's it's to each their own with us. Okay, by what what is the best way for those underprivileged to compete in life with those privileged who have built in advantages? Really to do the best that year can't. And and and that's hard to say do the best you can do. All we can do is do the best we can with what we've been given what we've are. That's all that's all we can do and back to what I said you know earlier on the show is job. Just do the best you can, and you know what makes it so powerful? Is that when you do see someone who may not have, all the resources are all the privileges that they start off in like the thing that I loved the most, and they're able to just endure over time and get to the point where they can move from underprivileged to prejudice. And then the other beautiful thing is that when you do see people with privileges that's all that even elevate that and use their privileges to help people who are who are not so privileges, and that's why I've said many times before always in the elevator back down. You know always do that and so yeah, the privilege and I'm not being privileged has nothing to do with college. it's about circumstances, but what we have to do is encourage each other to be the best that we possibly can be and and embrace who you on, and then brace the journey, and and and and I know we all have gone through through times I definitely, and I have to remind my my some loved ones in my around. Meet every day. You know how we live right. Right. Now is not how I grew up. You know so many times we see. People nearly finished product, and we think that that's the environment they grew up in. That's just the opposite, but part of the journey and part of the struggle is is is really what makes special, and so again I would just encourage people who are struggling and I've been there many years ago and it's not easy. But, but just through a lot of hard work and prayer and perseverance you can kinda mountain in single steps and but the problem is is now with television. And social media I mean social media can be a powerful force. We've all seen it happen even in this area, but through you know through that area. A lot of people think that they can calm. Climb a mountain in in. You know in in two two jobs. It doesn't work that way all the great things. Take time and the tough part about appear where we are. Is that back in the sixties with Bobby Kennedy? John F, Kennedy and Malcolm X. Dr King and others, and even you know through the last four years sixty years is.

Racial history, and joining US NOW IS MR Warren Kevin Paul Allen. How are you? Good to hear your voice And, as you can imagine it's been. A Tumultuous Week and And just a Lotta. Kind of a prayer lot of thinking tears It's been. It's been an emotional week. For a lot of different reasons and and I'm just I'm just one glad to call you friend. laughter, the love and support that I've received from so many people here in the great state of Minnesota and so many people from around the country and around the world, so it's fortunately. I I think that It's sad that. Mr Floyd had to lose his life, but his life will not be in vain and I think we've reached that point in our society where people have made their mind up that It's time it's time we gotta get this right we've been. We've been fooling around and danced around the issue, but I think everyone now agrees and sees that it's time so. I'm I'm doing well. I'm looking forward to to making the world a better place with people like you and We and thank you for that and we can't stress Enough Kevin you know how what a blessing it is for nine to noon, specifically during the pandemic and the shutdown in the corona virus now through everything through which we've gone the last better part of a week to have you on the radio show to share your thoughts. Because the the the first place I would begin. Is I the the draft of George, Floyd and the subsequent arrest of the officer who was kneeling on his neck? How did you feel then and did you see trouble coming locally and or nationally? Yes I did I mean one. You know being a lawyer, and you know spending. Spent the graduate, ironically, my my. A Ocean for different reasons, my thirtieth law school. You know reunion! Is this week other? We're not having it. We'll do it later in the year, but being a lawyer and and and and asking myself why did I go to law school and and now? Because you know wanted to make a change. I wanted to be part of the change whether it's from a corporate or stamp coin, or you know criminal law standpoint, but lawyers have a way to to to kind of stabilized society, and so yes, I did see some issues coming you know that area very well as you know. Greg is have been very involved in the twin cities and You know had a chance to to go to church in North Minneapolis during our time of living here, so you know. Know the city, but I just think a combination of you know Kobe nineteen, and the number of people who are unemployed and you know the just the anger and the struggle that that real life people are dealing with you know. How do they feed their families? Or how do they take care of the kids and you know things that that's how you know just think about it. People who've been trying to work or you know? How do they deal with childcare and house? They educate their kids and. Not Having Internet in the home, and you know we were fortunate to to my daughter Perry. WHO RUNS OUR WALK DOWN? They Foundation. We purchased one hundred five laptops for. Children in. A school do elementary school that we adopted in south side of Chicago because people there was some of these homes didn't even have a technological device, not even a cell phone, but let alone a computer so this when you combine this together and bring it together, and then you see Die Before your eyes I mean a lot of people hitting never seen a person expire, but to see that to someone to be killed. In to die before your eyes. I just knew you know with all that combined and all the tension. That's going on in our society that that it would it. Would you know things would escalate at the way? It has over this last week and and and it continues to escalate. Let Me Kevin let me ask you this. Not As Kevin, Warren Black Man, but Kevin Warren truly the well-respected leader for multiple decades like big ten commissioner chief, operating officer of the Minnesota Vikings, and so on the the as a leader when it comes to identifying major problems, and then taking steps to truly making a change. What what's that process like? You know that's that's the that's one of the best questions I've ever been asked. Because it is a process and it was you know interesting. The last couple of days and as you know, my, my my wife Greta, she's been there from from day one and so thing I love about her. She's such a great sounding board. Because you know, she always gives you. An unvarnished answer may may may not be what I wanNA hear, but it's transparent and bartered, so she's been around me to know what I go through and go through You know a state of thinking and saw maybe quiet. Period during the day, and then when she sees me with my yellow pads, you know making notes and scribbling things down She knows I'm putting my ideas on paper. And then she knew as a matter of time just like last night that I would come to her and say here's here's what I'm thinking about doing. Here's what I've been trained about the last couple of days. What's? What's on your heart what you've been praying about? And then we call us around our thoughts, and we take it forward, so the process as you said not as a commissioner of a conference or NFL executive, but as a dad as a person you know I. Always try to figure out one what sincere. What's on my heart so I don't want to run it through the corporate filter. To make it look right from Corporate Sam Point or the PR filtered. Make it sound right to get publicity, not that, but what's the right thing to do? What am I saying in my prayers? What am I saying to my friends? As far as feelings, and they're not try to articulate that in a manner sometime it's in the written word sometimes doing what I'm doing now, but as you know me, you don't make for the last fifteen or sixteen years is I'm a person of action? So you can imagine you know. Know granted. I are working through some issues. You know right now to put things in action. What can we do to put an action and the best thing we can do? Their couple of different steps one is you know coalesce people around these ideas come up with a tangible set of action items that we can put forward, and whether that's in our home whether that's in our in the conference, but as I say it starts with the Party starts with me, you know I gotTa. Make sure that I'm doing everything I can. To make the world a better place, and as I've said before either you part of the problem, or you're part of the solution. There is no middle place and then once. I can do that. then. What can my family do? WHAT CAN GRETA DO? What can Perry do? What can powers do? You Know Luna bears always happy, but what can we do as a family and then my community, and then my job, and.

Pride goes before the fall but when when it comes to men or young adults who who who are men you know for them to just take a deep breath and somebody know mentally for whatever the reason you're struggling and find a little help with that I just learned over the years. It's it's more difficult for men to take that step. Would you agree absolutely? And that's just the way kind. Kinda we'd been trained and wired From from that and I just recently can tell you know. I became Working with the big ten commissioner big ten. I've been able to talk about you know those items from accident and I'm writing a book now called build your own pool and it's about my journey from the accident. I took some of the settlement money and built a pool. My parents backyard to Rehab. But it's not only about the Physical Rehab. I talked about just the you know the mental Rehab and down and again we all have seen people I had them. You know in college where I saw some of my teammates were. They were struggling. And I didn't know how to articulate it and try to get some certain people to get help but I'd think that's what we have to do. I mean we just have to make a promise starting our family if someone is struggling or you know you can tell. Don't judge down. Don't don't don't judge them but but make sure that you help get them professional help and then and then even even some of the people that you work with life is life is hard and I think that one of the things. I've really tried to work on. Even the last couple of years is you can be demanding. you can push yourself you can put your hearts each others and yourself hard but you gotta understand that you have to have a the a compassionate person. I've really worked Over the last couple of years to be becoming more compassionate as a person. More understanding less judgmental. And it's during this ten DEMOC as I said. I just had a list of things that I really wanted to to work on and tell people even kids and my wife and Luna Barry knows it but tell them how much I love it appreciate and there's just a have to say there's so many people at the big ten and Who who worked you know just side by side with me on some of these mental health issues and you know some of them have just been just wonderful to deal with and I'm just grateful for them. What they do you know every day and as we call it we don't call it a a platform we call it the movement and what we're trying to do is to make sure that we empower our student athletes to be great while they're in our big ten family like even the be exceptional upon graduation when they go out to the to the world so. I'm honored to serve the big ten in Paseo Commissioner right now yeah with last one here. Kevin with The COM APP. I just don during your answer. I just downloaded it from my cell phone. Took like like twelve seconds. I think the first thing you see when you get into it. Take a deep breath. It's right I mean you. Click the big ten. Purchase that For the calm APP for for the ninety six hundred student athletes it's ubiquitous and you know the the the pressure on teens and college kids in in this day and age of of metrics and money in advancing and comparing social media everything. It's immense it and that's what I say me. Fortunately what helped me you know? I'm a loner by nature. I'm so I'm fine. But what helped me was pattern that action? I was forced to be by myself. Most of the time As a kid but but it was okay but I just think back at the time if you eliminate and even boxing the last dance Michael Jordan became that icon without social media but on the flip side. It wasn't a distraction but I just think I watching you know my kids. What they're you know. Go through as far as how communicating with each other and their friends and the social media. And how many lights people have and all of the different things that are going on in society and the television just and and if your college you're there to get an education so you have final exams and tests year learning how to date you know new relationships. You're away from home. I look at Terry. She went from Minnesota to Los Angeles and then powers goes from Minnesota to STARKVILLE MISSISSIPPI AND WITH NO FAMILY. Then those locations. That's why I'm so proud of both of them to be able to go and survived And not only survive to thrive for period to Occidental get graduate. Koumba outed four years in school like that if power to go to Mississippi State and play football you know in the SEC and get an education only sixteen hours from graduation. You know after three years and so I just I p I'm telling you and I saved me 'cause we spent a lot of time together. I spend so much time on my knees throughout the day. Just thanking God for all the blessings and things that None of us deserve and His grace and mercy and I'm just I'm just so grateful you know every single day get Again you know you touch my heart being able to spend time with you. But I'm just so grateful for people like you and family and friends and and And so I just again one incurs people just struggling mentally get help tell someone save alive. Be Sensitive have compassion. Now that doesn't mean that you don't strive for greatness and strive to be exceptional. You can do that but you can. You can reach you know greatness and become exceptional even as a compassionate person. That doesn't mean everything you do that everyone would like you or appreciate your answers but But this world is special every day's a gift and I just say just soak it all in you know whether it's the rain whether it's sunshine was beautiful breeze What his Green Grass that you know today is a new day for us to start over regardless of what happened in your life yesterday or last week today is a day and And then you saw the last dance until the game is over you think about most of those championships Jordan want. They were very few blowouts. I can't really the only one game that they they blew. Utah Jazz album. Every single one of them came down to the last thirty seconds. That's my life is so as long as there's time left on the clock keeps shooting the ball keep dribbling. Keep having say you know? Keep praying Because until the clock says zero.

We have men's hockey in the big ten and John Hopkins. We have men and women Lacrosse. But the purpose of this cabinet is really to Create a programs initiatives ideas platform to make sure they wear dressy and taking care of all mental health needs of student athletes as I said earlier. It's complicated being a young person. You know in the world and when you look at some of the surveys from the American College Health Association you know that they Surveys of students sixty percent of the students responded said that they felt overwhelming anxiety. Why forty percent experienced depression so severely that they had difficulty a functioning and one of the interesting things and twenty nineteen. There was a study done by Penn State University that The demand for campus mental health services spiked by thirty to forty percent during certain periods. But they only saw five percent increase enrollment and when you start hearing stats is. Suicide is the second leading cause of death. Among people between the ages of ten thirty four fifty percent of all lifetime mental endless began by age fourteen. Seventy five percent h twenty four and then one in six. Us use ages six through seventeen experience mental health disorder. You know each year one at twenty five. Us adults experienced serious mental illness each year and then one in five adults expires.

Happy Monday to everyone and hope you had a great weekend Happy Monday to you too sir. On Your family and our beloved Luna Luna Bear we welcome you to love strain on this Monday motivation. Monday and last dance. The Michael Jordan Documentary Sir came to a conclusion last evening My know you are and were a big band. What you think of the series and what you think a last night and good morning It was outstanding. I mean Grad nine the family. We watched All five theories of you know also some from the beginning all the way to last night and To see the ten episodes with was great and it was a really really enjoyed it because so many times You know just. The general public doesn't get an opportunity to look behind the curtain. You know to realize the complexities associated with professional athletics and Professional Sports and especially those once in a lifetime generation people like Michael Jordan who really trained descended just race. You know basketball You know Politics and Just made the world a small smaller take place so to really understand. I think the thing that I took away from it and I got a chance to be around Situations like like he was going through when Brett. Farve is with us for a couple years and then during the great years we had in Saint Louis with the greatest show on turf around Kurt Warner and Marshall Faulk and you know I bruce and some of the great players Tori hosted we had is that you know greatness lonely and And I even read an article earlier this morning would be. Jay Armstrong said that you know Michael couldn't be you know he was one of the guys because he couldn't hang out like one of the guys so he was pretty much when they go on the road he was in his room. And I think that's why you see some of the clips in there where he had a piano in the room and and And I got a chance to see that. So the greatness is loneliness think it was a great lesson for me to realize that to get to that level? What whatever you know. The top is your profession. No matter what you're doing whether you're broadcaster doctor lawyer an athlete a coach and entertainer and executives or even a parent Greatness is lonely and it takes a lot of hard work and dedication and Michael Jordan deserves all the goodness in life that he's been able to enjoy because he he worked and worked and worked and then that's when he started to work and he never took a day off so I really enjoyed it so Kevin on the greatness peace with them J. He was ruthless and that played into his greatness. So like doing what you do and what you have done. I mean as big ten commissioner all the way back to when you played college basketball at Pan or Grand Canyon University at discuss the importance of balancing the ruthless intent nature of running things the way you want them run yet. Praising and empowering those when deserving. That's that's a great question. It's a balanced that that. I you know have to literally stay struggle with but I have to address every single day. Three a lot about it You know life is not easy and I just think you know one of the things that were recognized. This complicated live in complicated world. You see what we're going through and ten damage. But but I'm I'M GONNA I'm a big believer and I say to my my children who are deeply love. that You know if you if you want to really reach your god-given capabilities and ability. You're not going to be you know one of the one of the members of a group. I mean you're going to have to spend many hours alone in solitude working early working late you don't have to make some sacrifices and even Posted last dance. Last night I watched out van pelt who by the way congrats on the University of Maryland. I love this show. But he interviewed I it's Rossi and he asked her Would you do it again? She said absolutely you know. She talked about missing her prom. She even gave a story that she missed a free. Throw WanNa Jordan's camps in high school and if you've made the free throw. He gave you a pair Air Jordan key. She said she thought that he was gonna give her the shoes and he didn't and she came back a year later after playing the University Connecticut and he was still razzing her about it and so some people may take that as ruthless. I take it just kinda reality and And and really I'm a big believer. You know the they I. It's a it's a struggle. It's a daily Journal. I mean journey. It's not for everyone and I just looked back over my life. There's so many things that I missed out on I. There are things that I did. I refuse to miss in my family. Never missed any of my children's sporting events Whether it was in town or out of town I've always been there for those key points at school but they were. I've missed me of You know for weddings miss. You know birthday parties Now for my kids and I forgot I never missed those but for for people who were close to me and But it was a sacrifice it was a sacrifice here working at the. Vikings sacrificed building that stadium. But if you really WanNa do something that lasts forever and transient time. You're going to need to be different. You're going to need to be a loner. You're going to need to be accustomed to making really hard decisions. You can still make hard decisions in a loving manner but You know striving for greatness is uncomfortable at times but but you have to make a decision early on if you WanNa just live or do you want to leave a legacy and so I just really when I see people like Michael Jordan an atrocity or other people who've crossed my past I really admired the sacrifices that they've made because it takes a sacrifice to be great Kevin. You mentioned the vikings the the wealth's Mark Ziggy Leonard. The entire will family you. You aided them in two thousand five from step one in purchasing the Minnesota Vikings and it was your first year here now that they for many many reasons have become the greatest owners in the history of the of this team but that first year for you guys five that was trying. I mean from you know you got the Reggie Fowler piece in January and so on it's official in May Antero Smith a whole thing. What what did you learn from that first year? You Know I. I learned that There are some people who are phenomenal pilots on clear sunny days there. I learned that. There's some people who are phenomenal. Captains of ships on calm waters But I also learned that there are some people and sometimes surprisingly because they've never been put to the test who are really spectacular and tough individuals who have grits and. That's what I learned. Is that it you know it. It was a complicated year. I mean even back to the boat incident and then I remember some of the vivid meetings with with the will family and then going down and meeting with share officer downtown. And that's where during those times in Your Life. You know when you have complicated issues and in front of you that they either GonNa pull. Your partners are make you stronger and and you know. We became very close with the family when we were working on the acquisition of the Vikings but it was during that first year. Then our relationship was solidified. Because like you said we had to work through a lot of different issues on being new into the community. You know even talking about the stadium issues at that point in time You know the boat incident trying to build an organization and that's when I You know became very closely with them. We work through some issues and I would say we moved from. You Know Business Associates To family and so I was although that was a very tough year many times greater night. Sit Now we can chuckle over it. But during that time period you know you can imagine moving from Arizona here with two young kids the first third grader. To a new city. We moved here. We only knew one person had a second cousin who lived here. And so that's why I'm so proud getting emotional talking about the twin cities much. I love the people here. That's why this will always be home because this city took A couple of Gretna. I two black people moving here into an environment with two little kids not knowing anyone and tend to look. You know what we've been able to accomplish together with so many people that we love here sixteen years later and I really captured our hearts get emotional talking about the twin cities. And how much is people need to me and So yeah it was interesting and but we loved every moment of it. We had to build from ground up You know had a new job in the organization and then But but so many times I still talk to mark Lenzi You Know Wilson. We chuckle about those times and and And if you know anytime you have to go through that and show that you'd have some grit You really recognize the importance of relationships and being around people.

NCAA cancels all winter, spring championships over Coronavirus concerns
"Welcome you to the final hour. We came on early today and We could probably be her all night and we still wouldn't Maybe get everything in for those of you just joining us It has been another one of those days. The conference tournament started getting cancelled About eleven o'clock today the SEC. Making it official about an hour and fifteen minutes before tip off and then the big one came down late in the day the NCAA canceling not only the men's and women's tournament but wiping out all of their winter and spring. Championships are commissioner. Greg Sankey joining us about ninety minutes ago reacting quite quite negatively to what he was hearing At the same time most of us were John. Who's been covering this story? Four for days if not weeks The senior sports editor at AOL DOT COM in Alabama. Joining us. John. Thank you very much as always I mean it's there's so many layers of this Of all these fast moving events What has stood out the most to your well. Let's start with what you're talking about. I think Greg's common illustrates something that I find fascinating about what happened in the last forty eight hours and I think she's really illustrates the fact that you're the NCAA and its member conferences. I've not been on the same page about things. I think that the NCAA's outfit yesterday that it was GonNa be carrying on. Its TOURNAMENTS ABOUT FANS. Caught a lot of these different conferences off guard and really. Kinda put him on the defensive because all the pressure and attention to turn to them you know. Why do you having these days with fans and the kind of dental fad? And today you saw all the different conference tournaments within like an hour of her so cancel and then I turned all kind of pressuring attention back to the NCAA. If you've just seen in the last twenty four to forty eight hours these you know the NCAA which represents confidence not doing a great job communicating. Its decisions and and decision making process which I think will certainly illustrated in the conference of Greg. Yeah and John. Yesterday I thought it was even more on display when Everyone Was CAUGHT OFF guard. All the commissioners were caught off guard when the NCW dropped the original story And I know Mark Camera. Got A lot of praise for that but that was before we found out you in particular being a reporter. What was really going on that Greg Sankey in Nashville and John swaddled in Greensboro and and Kevin Warren in Indianapolis and everyone else didn't know anything about it. Yeah you MTA got Yar Win. Visit and could be fair. I think they've made the right decision. But you could've given some of these different conferences or a heads up to give them a chance. You know to to try to do something out. And then you have the come out their decision and we've got reporters Nashville trying to track down Greg. In fact people To get you know. What are you guys going do? And I don't think they were ready for that. And you kind of had to see all these different conferences really have to kind of come together very fast. It's trying to figure out what was going on it. You know it definitely put those conferences and it's tough spot. I don't think they would've allowed fans in if they had given you know they had a better able to come out with the announcement that it did. But you know again. I don't think that there's been a lot of great tricks patient's doctor people outside the SEC. including the SEC. I don't think there was a lot of great vacation between the NCAA CONFERENCES. And that's kind of why you're seeing all these different. Come out at different times. It's everybody's not all on the same page about what they want and what they're gonNa do to prevent this pandemic running further. John is Thursday and it seems like this week has been going on forever and I WANNA I WANNA go back to earlier in the week. You are communicating on Sunday About the crisis That was literally going on all over the world and especially Closer to where we live in this country and I just wonder I. It seemed like the sports world. Was you tell me if this is the correct word? Maybe just a little bit tone deaf or slow to react because at that point in time. I don't think really anyone was thinking about this worthy. I totally agree with you. I know you and I were getting and you know I think people when I was reaching out to different people about what I feel about it. It was treated as a warped that you know. Maybe it's not a good idea to go to these different conferences tournament. You know early something which that only a few days ago that was treated that way out there and it was at the further you and a hamster popular people on social media on TV shows kind of continuing to these opinions that the viruses that big of a deal worth the flu and all these different opinions protecting
