"This fun stuff the longhorn beds before the game, and then when you get to the game, it's exciting. You're going to see Earl Campbell tomorrow, Ricky Williams and about 3 10. They're going to rededicate the field to Earl and Ricky. And then comes the game with Louisiana of Lafayette, Louisiana, formerly the rates and Cajuns. And I think it's going to be a terrific game. Texas is favored by just eight points and I think that's fair because Louisiana is a good football team. I think the Longhorns are going to win tomorrow, but it's gonna be an interesting battle because We have the new coach Steve Sarkeesian, a new quarterback, a bunch of new everything tomorrow. What's the quarterback's name? What's his name? Hudson card is a quarterback formerly of Lake Travis. Oh, yeah Red shirt. He had limited appearances last year. Tall kid. Great arm. It looks like an athlete Looks like a great athlete. He is and he is really Friday athletes. Played some wide receiver early on in high school, so he's very athletic. He looks like the kind of guy that he looks like The kind of guy that if he wasn't playing quarterback, he'd still be in the game somewhere. Yeah, he'd be in the game at the Fiji has to. You know what I mean? Uh, yeah, but he would be he would be in the game, but everybody's looking forward to seeing be John Robinson. He wears number five. They're running back for the long orange. He's getting all sorts of pre season accolades, and I think he's going to be terrific. So I think it's going to be a interesting to see if Steve Sarkeesian, the head coach. Can bring the things that gave him success as offensive coordinator at Alabama for a couple of years. And are you going to part Ed? Are you going to be in the press booth and as the press booth Air conditioned by chance, Jenny is the pope a Catholic? Ha ha. Yes, I'll be in the press box. I'm gonna go early tomorrow.

Do you have it all there in the press box now because of because of the star in Covid boxed lunches so that that will be five. So I think this is the second year that they've been allowed to sell booze at the stadium. Is that right? Beer? You know, it could have been. It's just I think this may be the third year to thank you. When you go to the game, it's cashless. They're not going to accept any cash tomorrow. So have your debit card. And if you just have cash tomorrow there'll be stationed where you can put your cast. In the machine and they'll punch out your card. But it's a cashless deal tomorrow, which which Which band should we pay attention to which which Longhorn band is going to get the most attention? Well, I'm looking forward to that won't band tomorrow. I really am. The walk band will be performing. I think they get on the field right after midnight after the game. I'm just kidding. No, I'm looking forward to the show Band of the Southwest. How are they going to do this? Seriously? What have you heard? What they're going to be two bands in the stands. I just I just think I don't think that second Ban has been formed yet. I hope it never gets form. It's a ridiculous proposition. They should have won ban the Longhorn band, and they should play the eyes of Texas long. And proudly because it is a school song, and a lot of those bad people are on scholarship. And if you're on a scholarship, you follow the rules and the rules say, now you play the eyes of Texas. That has been deemed by a bipartisan committee of all sorts of students and faculty and former students that it did not have racist origin. So it's time to move on and play the eyes of Texas. I agree, And here's what I'm looking forward to. My understanding is you're expanding sports Saturday not only the five o'clock in the six o'clock hour, but you and young son Ben, I'm gonna be taking calls. I'm only going to listen.

It's not real but bernstein song or singing in that episode. I thought that just made it up. I also assume they just made it up but I feel better now now. I even now.

They kill a lot of chickens in that state they are actually america's number one rice exporting state. Which the more you know. I mean i like that is be honest. Nobody here knew that But in two thousand seventeen according to the us trade representative did export more dollars in rice than pretty much anybody. I think the problem here is that they are a heavy or to the pacific rim. And i think in wartime it's difficult to maintain that sort of shipping line That arkansas relies on so some deeply for rice production and what if instead they take all the rice and dumping into lake travis. Dry the lake. They might do that. And that's again at furthers. The point that in boston on land absolutely how it only old. I am your wife. Sit by dinner.

The george h w bush presidential library so conceivably if any aggies wanted to go there and learn about how to try and fail to depose a middle eastern dictator who they don't like before having their son take it out on a bunch of civilians than they could learn back in college station texas but i'm not sure it'd be very productive for actually achieving long-term success as we have kind of found here in the united states of america also am does have some agricultural know-how but i think that that is zuma now and others have figured out how to farm.

"Late Sunday or early Monday. The Supreme Court is upholding Arizona's ban on ballot harvesting, and that has major implications for Texas. Rice University political analyst, Mark Jones as a similar ban will come up in the special session, which starts next week. This really is very likely to embolden Texas Republicans to push the envelope on election related reforms. Ballot harvesting is when advocacy groups collect voters mail in ballots. The high court ruled that Arizona's ban is not racially discriminatory, Jones says that gives Texas Republicans the green light to push for changes to the state's voting policies. Houston Police are looking for a man after a woman and her baby were shot at an apartment complex. Yesterday.

"Share some of this data because I do think the power has become so overwhelming with social Media Twitter in particular that most people don't actually look at the numbers. Less than 8%. Of US citizens are active Twitter users that's even lower when you consider political Twitter. If Twitter work congressional district, it would vote like Portland, Oregon. This is from John Newman. 10% of Twitter users create 80% of the content focused on politics. It's not the real world. What I always say is it is a carnival funhouse version, Buck Of the real world. And if you try to adjust your behavior, which far too many politicians and corporations are doing, it's like standing in front of a carnival funhouse mirror and thinking Oh, I'm fat. It's made you look fat. Oh, I'm skinny. It's major look skinny. It's not an accurate representation of the country, and so when we respond to it What we end up doing is drastically overrating the value of it as a as a mechanism by which to determine the overall mood of the country. And I think that's working in the censuses favor. I think so, too, and The New York Times it has been said has as an assignment. It's assignment. Editors. Actually Twitter What I would add to that is that the echo chamber effective Twitter on news coverage is incredibly powerful for a lot of people listening. They're listening to us on on hundreds of radio stations across the country there thinking well, Twitter. I mean, so many folks aren't honored as you point out, but it's a way for for narrative to be communicated in real time from one news organization to another. And then they can all point to each other. By the way they did. There was a New York Times reporter who was jumping all over Fox News for pointing out the falsehood of the initial story. And it was. Why are you reporting on them? Getting it wrong? You know, kind of everybody makes mistakes attitude, except as we know Well, if you're going to get things wrong, you should be held to account for it. And in this case, I mean, this was recklessly bad reported. Also, it only seems to be wrong in one way. Yes, like that's my thing. Trump like If you think back to all the things that people got wrong about Trump and what they're getting wrong about this Santa's, there's never a point where you sit back and say, Oh, that's a really favorable story that ended up being false. Like whatever it might be right? You would think if you were just occasionally getting facts wrong that the facts wouldn't always cut in a negative way. There'd be sometimes and be like, Hey, Rhonda Santis. He saved 10 people from a burning building. Oh, that didn't actually happen, But at least there was a positive story, right? Donald Trump. There was a boat that's saying during a trump rally, and he swam and he saved 10 people and you're like, Oh, well, that didn't actually happen. It's only negative stories that are not true. And the negative stories are not something I want everyone to understand this. There is no reporter who feels badly about writing a story that trashes Trump or just Santis or whatever, because they've served the purpose at the time rewarded. That's right. They get bigger contracts. More followers Look at Russia collusion, which is something we will refer to as a as a background note. I'd say for this show sometimes. Russia collusion four years. And this is terrifying Commentary on the American media in general Total lies all full of nonsense. And if you look and you and I know this because we see the people who were at the front of the Trump is Putin's puppet train. Bigger book deals, more followers on social media elevated at all the zero negative consequences. So the actual market incentives for the Democrat left for the fake news as Trump used to call them. Rightly so. Is to keep doing exactly what they've done, So I just want everyone. This is why you see these things like Death. Santa's trending. This is why this continues to happen. They're terrified of distances because on some level, De Santis is logical. Trump Going to unpack that a little bit more when we come back. I'm also going to give you the latest poll results. Nearly 20,000 of you have voted in the 1st 20 minutes. Most recent straw poll for 2024. These were the top four candidates, according to the voters. Ron de Santis, Donald Trump, Ted Cruz, Mike Pompeo, who would you support get your votes in? I'll update you on those 1st 20,000 when we come back and Will discuss if there's any significance of these early straw polls. That's next to finish off the first hour. I'm Clay Travis.

Um we knew going out the beginning of this year that these three teams would like to be in the top five. Texas Tech is great teams. And so is Baylor. They're not having their best tournament. That doesn't mean they couldn't have a great round tomorrow. But I originally thought that all five of those teams would be a top 10 selection this year and It's proved out for the three of us were actually in the top five, along with Oklahoma's ranked number one and Depending on what poll.

"What it's not windy. Could remember what happened when they had the Trump deal at Lake Travis. She had Moz. You know, taking on water, we gotta dump. It was kind of tough. You be careful out there. Be careful on there. By the way, the game is it. The Duke game is turned into a heck of a game. The fighting Irish of Notre Dame lead 87 85 with a minute to play. In a special afternoon game and Cameron Indoor Stadium that's while for nobody's there, except a bunch of cutouts. But we'll keep tabs on that Longhorns in case state playing at seven o'clock tonight. What do we expect? What would we consider acceptable from the Longhorns Tonight? We'll get into that before we get out of here as well. But let's talk about gambling for a second. We mentioned this a little bit yesterday. That there is Momenta, um toe. Dan Patrick disagrees. But Mo mentum for gambling spill legalize sports betting in the state of Texas. Specifically yesterday it was an alliance between three of the major sport in sports franchise all in Dallas Cowboys, the Mavericks the Texas Rangers backing legislation that would allow Texans to vote to lift the state's ban on gambling. Uh, the numbers kind of striking to me. Because forever. It was just Nevada that had sports betting. Correct, CASS. Uh, 25 States have legalized sports betting. Synced fellow Yeah, so they're done gone Half the country has got it. But we here in the great state of Texas don't have it, And apparently, it's not close. Well, yesterday we talked about the story of those major franchise is backing this bill. And Ed. You guys cover this earlier. Correct? Can you give us an update on what Danny said to us? Well, Danny go. Okay. Dan Patrick, who used to be a talk show host used to be in our industry. He was on the radio. He was Before he was Danny Gold. They changed the name of Dan Patrick got into politics, and he just put a big old bucket of cold water on everything today, he told Ah Lovett radio station today that I've never been in favor of it, meaning gambling in Texas. He says. We are nowhere close to having the votes for it. We don't even have a bill that's been filed in the Senate on the issue. When you don't have a sponsor. It's not even Bill. You spend much time or thinking about it. I don't spend much time up because the numbers are against it, and he's against it. And this is so short sighted by the lieutenant governor. Because all you have to do and we've talked about this before fellows look at all the countless people who are leaving every weekend to Louisiana and Oklahoma to gamble and the state really need hotels and see big shows and have great food and it is show so short sighted. By Dan Patrick. To say no, We're not going to do it because I don't want it. S O. It's not good. But unless you have Dan Patrick, you won't have anything in this session of the Legislature. So the Republicans have the 18 to 13 majority in the state Senate. And I guess you need 21 votes to even get an amendment to the voters. They said. They're nowhere close to being able to have to do that, Um He also points out that the revenue that is what we're talking about that you know the potential revenue that we're allowing to go to Oklahoma Go online offshore, You know, go toe to your guy down on the corner that it represents, in fact, a small amount of money in a state that what does he say? Spends $125 billion a year that everybody's talking about all this revenue that you're passing up? Actually, it doesn't even really move the needle. He says. Well, he's wrong about that, because I think he's just checking what the state would get in gambling. Per se. He's not talking about the gas tax. He's not talking about the booze tax. He's not talking about Hotel motel tax and stuff Solid eight, and he's like I just think it's very short sighted by him. But But here's the deal if he goes home and says, I'm proposing gambling He's gonna have a primary opponent and he'll get beat because that base of the Republican Party has always hated gambling. And you know it. Xeni vice. I hear where you're coming from with that, Ed. But this is the question to both of you Help me with this Usually when it's big vice things like this. Like what? The legalization of marijuana and everything. If you look deep enough, like booze is funding people to go lobby them, not legalizing it. If that makes sense already. Where do you think? Is there some force? That's lobbying this not to happen in Texas. Like I would think maybe it's other hotels or casinos and everything. But wouldn't you want them to open this up? Because you could get a new territory or something like that you with? They can't just be. He doesn't want to get primary. You know, I understand that, but To me. It's like there's gotta be other monetary forces behind the scenes that really are battling against this. There are veto because Las Vegas has a big Lobbying presence against this Oklahoma does New Mexico does in Louisiana and Mississippi? Do they have paid lobbyist to say no, We don't do this. Don't do this. And my question is how much money is going into the can write coffers of these Republicans and some Democrats who say Oh, no, we can't have this. It's the work of the devil. How much money and how many drinks and how many dinners and how many things are they funding through this lobbying money Because it is apparent you're right. You know you're right on target. It's Vegas. It's Louisiana, Mississippi and Oklahoma said, Oh, that that would kill the Windstar, which is a spectacular place that would kill Windstar because they get everybody from from from Dallas up north of there to go every weekend. So shocked us has been to the chairman of the Choctaw Casinos Step in Durant, Oklahoma. There shot under the been a shot to kill that supposed to be good at poker events up there. Everyone said that I've been to Lake Charles and Harris, and it is really nice, and they've got good one too good golf courses there, But But it's just the short sightedness of politicians who their main goal is to do what, fellas get reelected..

Robin Hood, You turn your back on. You know, the people of Usher would force because the sheriff of Nottingham called What a bunch of cowards. Seriously. Good way.

I saw a tweet from AOC and from Donald Trump Jr that were almost identical talking about the big hedge funds jump in here at 512836059. It really concerns me and let's be honest. I mean, the majority of Americans and that includes May I don't I still just don't have a full Grasp of this understand the basic, you know, idea here, but it's hard for me to speak, You know really intelligently about it. But what it's doing is going to make the stock market is the whole pretty volatile and that concerns me and and because this is not based on this is only based that this Incredible rise in game stops. Stock price is based on on creative math is not created. It's not based on a successful company. It's the success of this company. Uh, In fact, it's based on the failure of this company that which created opportunity here. So that scares me because I think in the long run, what keeps our economy strong is success. Its success. Excessive, successful companies that That, you know, helped drive the stock price up. So how do you know which companies they're successful? When you got the big hedge funds, the rich he leads that have been, you know, manipulating the markets for generations. This right here has been the old ultimate equalizer. I think this is glorious. What has been happening? This proves that the Internet is the ultimate equalizer because the little guy Learned how to do all of this on their own. Pretty much didn't learn this in public school. They don't teach this kind of thing. Adelle Valley High. They don't teach this kind of thing in Lake Travis. Hi. It's been kept a secret. But the Internet has given the small guy while weapon a tool to be Justus rich.

This has been the ultimate scam on the little people of America. Little people of the world Now the little guy can be just as rich as the big guy. We This should be a glorious This should be a day off freedom. We should feel freedom right now. Because of this 512836059 What I don't want to see, though, or other people's, You know, investments being infected by that little guy. Who? You know, I don't want to lose money. What about the little guy's investment? Okay, Well, you know, why is that? Why? What about the little guy's investment? You are the little guy? What about him? I can't. Why can't poor people get rich, too? Mean, Richie leads always tell poor people just invest your money. And then when poor people start investing the rich people say all wait a minute. Now, wait a minute. Now this is you understand what you say, Surprise. You're speaking out against this. I'm not necessarily speaking out against it, because it's a very complicated thing here, and there's a lot of Ah lot of ways you could look at this. Understand the angle that you're coming from there, but also You know for someone like me who's been conservative, conservatively investing in the stock market for 35 years Now you've been manipulated by the hedge funds. You you've been restricted from making more money by those heads. What I don't want to see Is this turn into something that makes the stock market extremely volatile and I end up losing money. As a result, I don't I don't want that. And that's just speaking completely, honestly and selfishly right there. Well, listen, I don't know where you've been. But the market's been pretty volatile for a long time to understand. We don't want it to be more evolved. Well, listen, we got more of that on my linked in page and on the front page of our website would love to get your thoughts. Your reaction it Zim pretty amazing story.

We don't know what any of these investors even looked like Where they work with their faith is we don't know what their gender is. This should be. This should be the issue that we're talking about.

Why couldn't they learn how to make a living and invest and learn about interest rates and mortgages in public schools? Maybe it's by design to keep us dumb. Maybe that's what it's been.

"For blue states with their bad policies for their lockdown policies. You know, the best stimulus that we could have is a country is to allow the economy to smartly and safely open like we've done in Florida. Kids have been in school in person since last August, and we're not having a statewide Meltdown. You can wear masks and space out and go to school because why we take the approach of letting business owners and individuals and families make those smart decisions rather than these mass policies from from lockdowns, and our numbers aren't any worse or aren't any different than California, New York But Now they have these match massive state budget deficits. They've got to fill that hole. States have to balance their budget. The federal government doesn't so AOC. And now Joe Biden are going to the big piggy bank in the sky that Prince nonstop money. Here's the thing I Are are spending package that we passed was 1.5 Trillion. We've now spent over six trillion and counting and bringing it full circle to the bigger picture. China, the Chinese military. Their command is counting on this country going bankrupt before they then make their big moves around the world. And every estimate I've seen has accelerated that between 2024 2026 now with this additional spending, all right, There you go. There's just a few minutes ago on Fox. Let me get your reaction and 51283605 90. Well, I do agree with what he's saying that there's a sports opening up the economy. Although What? How many aspects of the economy are not open. Most restaurants are open. Now they need to put it back to 100%. So restaurants, for example, can fully open can do everything they could possibly do. But one thing that has to happen is people's heads changing, and what's keeping a lot of people away from businesses still is not because they can't get in because capacity eyes because they're too afraid to go in. Are. So you're saying that watching too much. Lester Holt there watching too much for Lester, even though he does look good in a vest. Um, so that's got to change it. So I think really, the big focus should be not in relief packages not and $15 an hour, not $1400 per household or whatever the break dance gonna be there. It needs to be focused on getting the damn vaccines out there and getting the needle and everybody's arm. So everybody feels Mork confident about getting out and going on, and therefore the economy or run like it should. That's where the focus needs to be on the vaccine. Now this $1.9 trillion Biden plan also includes another 400 billion allocated for fighting covert 19, including 160 billion for nationwide covert testing, containment and vaccinations. Buying has a goal of 100 million shots in the 1st 100 days. Might also called for 350 billion for struggling states and local governments, including 20 billion for tribal governments. Republicans have strongly opposed to similar relief measures before and the big question is, Can he do it? With a slim majority of the House and the Senate Democrats may be able to help bind and push this through. Still, the proposal service 46 is first legislative test tow win bipartisan support Now, while he could use a process known as budget reconciliation to get this through the Senate's with Democrats and 51 vote majority, Biden is hoping to coax it least 10 Republicans. To say yes to this idea, And if he does, I guess it could be history. No GOP senator voted for Bill Clinton's first economic plan, and only three did so far for Barack Obama's back in May, according to Bloomberg News. 51283605 90, I guess some of the sticking points you know that would make a lot of people say no to this. One thing would be this $15 an hour minimum wage that that is. What terrifies me. It does is far is what That will do. I think that's an incentive killer. I think it's a lot of it. There's a lot of ways you can look at this. And obviously it's going to cause prices to go up for the consumer. I don't know There's a lot of places out there that already have jumped up to 15 an hour, but I mean, it's hard to hire anybody. You pick the business in Austin, Texas, you you almost have to start him out at that level, just to get him in the door to fill out the application. Yeah, I know what you mean. But I'm not talking chick fil A. You know, I don't think they're quite 15 an hour, but target Costco, Amazon and others. Yeah, Amazon did it first, but they did it as a strategic move. Because they had the ability to do it and they saw it is a way that would make it very difficult for the Walmarts out there. Toe also pay 15 an hour, but the only in a lot of them have actually caught up. Well, it will have a positive effect on a lot of families that that's for sure, but it's also going to have a negative effect on the consumer. Our prices will go up. Also, I think it will be an incentive killer is far as people, you know. Okay, well, I am going to make my career, you know, flipping burgers and if that's what you want to do, fine, But I think for a lot of people is gonna keep people from aiming higher.

I wouldn't want to try. I'm sure I'm sure you could. But you have to get really, really creative. Very creative and very, very fertile. Right. Very frugal. So how is it an incentive stealer? Well, I think because for some, that's that's good enough. You know, if if they can, if they can just squeaked by, that's good enough. And I guess if that's how you wanna live your life, it's your life. Go ahead and live it. I just think it's Z. These jobs that are going to go to $15 an hour. Ah, lot of them were not ever meant to be careers. They weren't They were meant for you to work while you're going to school or just kind of on the way to something else, And that way the business can ultimately prosper.

NFL Insider Dan Graziano Breaks Down Week 11
"Dan graziano it is eleven fifty eight. Pm eastern so. Thank you very much man for staying up late behind. After that game. I go right to sleep. That was exciting. Dan graziano is an espn nfl insider. And he will get to sleep soon. We promise fired for game like that. Yeah me too i mean. Let's get into this right off the top here the chiefs. Just beat the raiders. Thirty five to thirty one. They beat the team who is beating kansas city. This season dan back in week. Five about a million years ago. So were you watching for in this rematch tonight. Well to see if they can do it again right. I mean that sounds simple. But like i didn't think their victory over kansas city was a fluke because it seemed like they had kind of a formula that they went out and they stuck to. They didn't win but a certainly could have. And i think that's that's significant because they know that's the team that is in their way in their division. Obviously they're on top of the conference in the league as super bowl champion. So you see the raiders. Draft a running back in the first round last year. That can help them. Control the clock and keep mahomes on the sideline like they did in the first game. They played they draft the speedy wide receiver this year in the first round. That can stress their quarterbacks. I mean they're thinking about the chiefs all the time. They're certainly not on that level at this point as the records indicate but they've constructed a team that can play in a way that threatens the chiefs and it might be able to beat them. So they're not as different as you might inclined to think yet and i have to admit like the difference between pat mahomes and derek carr felt smaller than i ever realized it would tonight. What did you see from these two quarterbacks total commanded of the offense which has not always been him. And certainly since gruden's been there. We've seen a lot more ups and downs. Where he looked like he was a little bit. Lost a little bit uncertain But this is years three with gruden and when gruden got there he talked about competent car up and making sure that car believed he was the guy. So that when you know. When ben came together around him he would be the guy that was in total control of things. And and it seems to be coming to fruition. What he's got. He's got people to throw to nelson agholor like out of nowhere as having a career renaissance in las vegas. He's got two very running back. Got a great offensive line. And i think you know he's playing with a lot of confidence as you would expect him to give all those things now. I think he's taken a big job this year in terms of where. He ranks in terms of the quarterbacks. We feel confident about what we watched the did feel like gruden kinda new like no. It's sunday night football. Let's give the people something that they'll enjoy. What did you most enjoy from. Hearing those play called why. I our love to know what the purple walrus was and i mean i think there are some vegas ones like he dropped. The sammy davis in there at one point and then and then it sounded like they've been paying very close attention to the nba off-season because there are a number of james harden and those who among nfl coaches knows how to produce primetime football. Better than jon gruden right. I mean he did it for for a decade or so for us in terms of operating in that sphere. So maybe i don't know maybe maybe he feels like a showman or maybe they're just having a lot of fun in their in their offensive meetings. They sound like all. The time does not all watching every week but was it so as showmanship goes that lasts. Drive man lake travis. Kelsey had some great moments in this game but that catch at the end mahomes calling him the best tight end in the league game. What did you see from travis kelsey tonight yeah domination. This is this. is you talk about reliability. I mean the the quarterback knows he's going to be where he's supposed to be. He knows he's almost certainly going to be open. He know he's going to catch the ball like it's total complete confidence in a guy in a key spot third down. A guy had throw to the end zone in the final minute. I mean he is the best tight end in the league. I don't think it's even close especially when you know. George kittle is on the shelf right now in the second best tight end. The league is probably the guy that was on hiller sidelines tonight. So there's there's no doubt that he in homes are in sync in a way that very few combinations like that are
