Kristin Stultz Pressley On Dorothy Fields And Her Impact On Broadway Musical Theater
"Well hello kristin welcome back to the podcast while it is so good to be back with you. Thank you for having me. I have thoroughly enjoyed watching your podcast as it has grown. You've done some really exciting things and talk to some incredible people and so it's been a real joy to watch it will relations by the way. Thank you for being a listener as well as a guest but yeah it's good to have you back and so what was it. That drew you to dorothy fields. And why did you want to write a book about her well. To be honest. I started studying. Dorthy fields a master's candidate at the university of kentucky and one of the bugaboos about graduate school. They expect you to have a research project and the real catch is. It needs to be something. No one else's ever researched before so it can be pretty tricky because If it's something that no one's ever researched before how are you going to know about it right. And how are you gonna find research about exactly so you're really starting from scratch. So i went to graduate school bride. Probably twenty three twenty four year old new. I wanted to study. Musical theater was in the theater. Department had no idea what that specific topic would be that. I would research for the next two years. Actually i was planning on doing a phd. So would have been the next four years. I knew it would be related to musicals. I knew what related to the golden age of musical. So i was thinking cole. Porter irving berlin oscar hammerstein. I loved lyrics and Each of these wrote lyrics so that was something that was already drawn to. But every time i talk with my advisor she was We know everything about quarter. Everything's been done about oscar hammerstein. There've been books written about and by irving berlin says she would just keep shooting down and rightfully so. Because i needed what was going to be my contribution right. What was what was going to be my something that i could add to the academy so to speak. And so as a person of faith. I literally prayed and prayed and prayed and prayed and one day in her office. It was as if i saw this blinding vision across my eyes and it just was the name dorothy fields and i knew nothing about dorothy fields. Except that i recognized her name from the show card from sweet charity. Nineteen sixty six charity And i had seen that show card. So much of course had the cd collection. So i am the the cd case very much like the show card. And so i just blurted out. What about dorothy fields adviser stopped. And said i don't know anything about dorothy fields and so that was two thousand three. I went home and it was the very early days of googling there. There was not much on the internet yet. But there was enough that i could see my goodness. This woman wrote the way you look tonight. This woman wrote. I'm in the mood for love. This woman wrote on sunny side of the street. This woman was the brain power behind any. Get your gun. She came up with the idea to do a show about any oakley. And so i went back to my adviser at a different class to that night and told her. What do you think about this. This is what i found out. She says let's do it so it's been almost two decades that i've been at this but i continued that work not only for masters but also for my doctoral dissertation which i ended up doing my phd at the university of georgia. But i took dorothy with me. When i went from lexington to athens. Dorothy came along for the ride. You basically were looking at her life from you. Know more academic educational standpoint. So what makes this different from those dissertations. That's actually a great question you know. It's funny because when people ask me what the book is about or have asked me over the past twenty years what. I was researching. And i would mention dorothy fields. And everybody's i don't know her but then you mentioned song titles you say hey big spender. She wrote that or pick yourself up. She wrote that or on the sunnyside of the street. She wrote that everybody gets that same. Like a ha. I know her but they didn't know that they knew her in my master's thesis. That's one question that i asked was why her name. Not as well known as porter and all of those men not only were they collaborators of hers they were very well loved colleagues who esteemed. Dorothy is one of them. And there's a couple of suggestions for that one is. She was never part of a team that that lasted for a long time. So by that. I mean rodgers and hammerstein that that is an iconic dua were Rodgers and hart even or irving berlin wrote music and lyrics cole porter music and lyrics but dorthy fields for it with eighteen different composers over a five decade long career so there was never easy to pinpoint her as. Oh well. that's i mean the closest would be jimmy. Mccue who was first collaborator of fields in. Bq song where it just it just there. That never happened with her. It never became a catchphrase. Another suggestion is because she was very self effacing. You know if she was asking an interview. Oh we'll tell us about this experience. Riding with arthur schwartz or whatever she would immediately turn it around and said well let me tell you how great. It is work with arthur. You know she would always shine. The spotlight on her collaborator And so that's another reason. Why perhaps she didn't seek the spotlight and it wasn't until later in her career. She became concerned with legacy and she hired a publicist at and that happened in the late. Nineteen fifties as. I think her her brother died unexpectedly. Her husband died unexpectedly her her dear friends and collaborators beginning to die and i think she realized at that point. Hey maybe i am concerned with being. And i do need help to accomplish that.

Interview With Robert Livingston
"How you doing. I'm doing good doctor livingston. Are you bummed. That if you google your name you're going to get one of the fathers of the constitution right or one of these early founding fathers taking all the real estate yes yeah this ranch of being named dax. There's just not a bunch out there right now your christian name it is. It is yeah. My mom and dad had read a book in the lead character's name was dax. And let's go for it where you from originally. So i was born in lexington kentucky and that's where i spent most of my time but i've lived in six states in four foreign countries. So do you have a favorite my favorite place to visit his turkey. Eastern bowl is my favorite city in the world really has the oslo balance of chaos and order if you will oh okay good. I need you to drill down on the order. Because when i look at it looks very bright. Very frenetic very exciting. And i'm a little bit like that's seems maybe too chaotic. There's a method to the madness because there are places. I've been that are chaotic. They're just chaos deal with it but turkey just seems chaotic like this. Is it comparable to any other form or european country or is it its own thing and that's why you love it. It's its own thing. But i would say it's most comparable to spain. I don't know if you've been disowned ensuring people go out to eat restaurants. Don't open before nine o'clock in the party starts at one. Am and it goes to eight in the morning and spain has a different rhythm. And i think that's the most similar country to turkey and its mediterranean so similarities in the cuisine fish a lot of oil you know and then a crazy history. One of the most historical places you could visit. And that's what i like about it too. So you just hit the number one criteria for whether i like cities or don't and that is rhythm so i'll be places and i'm like yeah it's beautiful. That's a big tall building. That's got all the accoutrements of a great city. But there's just no rhythm happening here and then conversely you go down to austin texas. They don't have a ton to look at. And i'm like oh i can feel the rhythm all around me exactly now. How did you end up at harvard. Like most things in life. It had something to do with my network. So i was in england at the time because i had accepted a position because again our wanderers case. You can't tell i. Don't mind packing up and going to some exotic place. And i got an offer to take over as head of organizational behavior department at the university of sussex and i had my own center and when i was there at the center i discovered my real passion. I like to say. I transitioned from being a gardener to being a florist. When i was just a straight researcher i had my hands in the dirt. Cultivating blooms if you will. And then. when. I was head of the centre. I interacted with metropolitan police. The nhl the national healthcare service all these organizations to sort of give away my flowers if you will and so. I got into the florist business. Like how do you arrange these flowers into the perfect bouquet to give it to people at weddings. Because what's the point staying in a greenhouse if no one ever sees the beauty of your flowers and so you know when i was in england i discovered the passion of sort of giving away the science and then harvard. You know i was giving a talk. And they said well. You know we're holding company of entrepreneurs will let you come here and do whatever you wanna do if you don't want publish anymore will let you be a practitioner. But an academic at the same time and i was like really because most places aren't set up you know. Harvard makes its own rules. So i sort of took on this position to be an academic practitioner which led to this book that we're going to talk about which is sort of trying to distill. The science synthesize it assembly like a bouquet into something that people can digest and use to make profound sustainable change around racism. So that's like my purpose in life. Now where did you get your doctor. Degree because lexington kentucky and then ending up england emceeing already. You're privy to to dramatically different racial structures. And i wonder where you went to college if you maybe even a third and that somehow helps you on your journey just to have witnessed all this stuff firsthand. I went from coast to coast to coast and into the mid west. So basically i started my undergrad tulane university in. I did a study abroad in spain. Which is how. I came to know. Spain fell in love with spain. And i majored in spanish. That was one of my things. And then i went to. Ucla started at the gulf of mexico. Coast number one went to california. Ucla that was number two. And i was getting a phd in romance language and linguistics. So something completely unrelated. But i was looking at themes of oppression in latin american literature and colonialism. So i always been interested in that. In undergrad i did the thesis on a comparative study of racism in brazil and the united states but long story short i was hiking in joshua tree. And there was a psychology student. Who said you know you're doing really cool research. Did you know you could do this in the real world. And i was like no. There's a field where you can actually study racism and discrimination. She's like yeah you know. Why don't you come in audit a class. And that was the beginning of the end. So i left that program. I got a master's. I was a heroin from impeach d. But decided to start all over again in social psychology. So i started at yale. Struggled from coast to coast to coast and my professor at ucla said. Don't go to yale because i got into princeton yale. He said go to ohio state. That's like the best program in the country in what you're doing and as a phd student or go to programs not schools. And i didn't think. I could live in columbus ohio so i went to yale and then i was like you know what i can't live in new haven connecticut so the professor at ohio state would you guys take me and fortunately i had my own funding because i wanted. Nsf fellowship. so. I was able to export that i went to ohio state and worked with one of the top people in the field maryland brewer. Who's like the godmother of social identity.
Can schools safely reopen? Doctors weigh in
"At the CDC said yesterday that schools can safely reopen for in person classes as long as they follow safety protocols like mask wearing and social distancing. It'll come as a relief to many parents and potentially a source of anxiety for quite a few teachers. Let's go to a school now. The University of Kentucky we're in person. Classes resumed this week, University President Eli Kappa Ludo is here. Mr Coppola to welcome good to speak with you. Good afternoon. Glad to be with you as well. And congratulations. I know you just started your spring semester on Monday. Maybe there was a time when you didn't think that would happen as planned. How are you going to keep everybody safe? Well, we've learned a lot from our fall semester. We're prepared to retest to surveillance testing, waste water testing. We have all kinds of Ways to keep tabs on our numbers on campus. Those who are positive move into isolation, be able to trace get those folks into quarantine and we built a modern public health infrastructure to do that. Well, as you say, you've had some time to study this because of last semester when you and pretty much every other college campus in the country did have cases of covert. Were you able to learn whether or not people were getting sick from spending time inside the classroom? Through our extensive testing on tracing We saw no evidence of classrooms spread. I think we may have traced some 6000 plus students, not in any of those cases that we see evidence of classroom spread. And so where is it spreading? I know some of your no. One of your fraternities was suspended last summer for breaking covert rules. Is that where people were getting infected? I think some of the harsh lesson lessons we've seen outside of college campuses hold for campuses, and that is When we let our guard down, gather and smaller, large groups, for whatever reason is when you see your outbreaks on Yes. Have there been situations where we had to intervene. We're organized groups wanted to hold things. Yes, way had to put a lid on that. We'll look these air college kids, and I'm not trying to let them off the hook by any means, But they're young adults. Sometimes they make bad decisions. How do you make sure they get your message? You know, are you planning on Enforcing these rules is strictly as possible. We did. We started with a positive assumption, though. And with a strong, healthy behavior intervention, what we called our daily four point of That is our screening testing, tracing all those kinds of things we reinforce. And, uh, yes. They're isolated incidents where people didn't behave as we wanted. It is. I look at my office window today. I'm gratified. I walked this campus. I live on this game. I'm very pleased with the way our students have responded. I think they've been good. Good citizens and something else that has really fascinated me. We've had over 3000 cases. 25% of those have been self reported. And I think it's our connectedness on that. They see us as a resource. And when we come out of cove in and decide who we are and what we want to be, and one of the things we can leverage I think this positive influence on health and health behaviors is one we can capitalize on many schools from elementary schools to high schools to college campuses are worried about students mental health over the past few months over the past year, really, including suicide, Unfortunately, What are you noticing on your campus? Uh, this worries may deeply are students who we have asked physically distant have done so, but it has its consequences. Be able to walk down the hall in your residents facility and get that informal counseling plus the physical counseling we have available on campus. That social infrastructure is vitally important. We tried to replace your students are hurting because they don't have it. Yes. Most certainly, but the resilience I've seen has been a gratifying well, we all hope that vaccinating people can help put an end to all of this right. So you're getting shots into arms on your campus? Who's getting a shot? Who's not? We follow the state guidelines. I think we're one of the most efficient in the state right now is one of the regional vaccination centers. We morphed our football stadium into a site. You register online? All of our health colleges are involved where? Vaccinating over 2000 people a day in the community of Let's just on campus. Well, this is the community of Lexington. Starting first are our public and private school employees in hopes of getting our schools to reopen way have vaccinated thousands of public and private school teachers just in the last week and first responders and then people of the age of 70. So to that point, um, you know what's your best prediction? For the fall of 2021, because I'm glad your classes have started in person this week. That's great news. But what's your best prediction for next semester? In the fall? What will that look like? How close to normal? Could it be? I think if we have adequate vaccine supply and are able to complete that, by late spring, we will reopen, but I think we're still gonna have to be cautious and careful. But as someone who I talked to today said, I know that when I received my vaccine yesterday, I wasn't immediately protected. But the hope that seem to arise within May was immeasurable. Alike. Absoluto, president of the University of Kentucky there in Lexington. Thank you, sir. Thank you for your time. Thank you. Stay say.
NCAA Men's 2021 March Madness Will Take Place In A Bubble In Indiana
"This spring sixty eight. Men's basketball teams from colleges and universities across the country will gather at indianapolis for march madness that includes athletes coaches and staff along families and press. The organizers goal is to create a bubble similar to what the nba did over the summer. Indianapolis was already set to host the final four this year which nc double a senior vice president of basketball. Dan gavitt says made it a logical choice. We knew when we made the decision to come to one geographic location. Having as many of those venues in the city of indianapolis in marion county in particular was important for the health costs to be very similar. Gavitt says the city's long history of hosting sporting events should help the. Ncaa is headquartered here in the city. And there's enough venues. Hotels and transportation teams will stay in the four downtown hotels all connected to lucas oil stadium. One of the six sites to be used for games but the move will likely be a financial blow to cities that were set to host some of the games this year including lexington dallas dayton and san jose. The decision is welcome news for the indiana lodging association. It's president patrick. Tam says last year it's all twenty percent of restaurants permanently close and two thirds of the hotels facing bankruptcy. Now news is is indicative of the best news for hotels since march. This is tremendous news for a lot of people that have been out of work or they now be called and talked with end. The demand for rooms could increase the nc double a. decides to allow fans to attend at a time when indiana's averaging more than seventy deaths per day from covert nineteen university of california berkeley epidemiologist. John's schwartzberg says is important to put public health before sports news standpoint. There's every reason recent plan for it if they have to have every reason for cancelling it is. Things aren't fanatically but state and local officials like governor. Eric holcomb argue. That india can handle thousands of guests. And keep them safe will have the place spruced up and ready to go. Just like we do for the indy. Five hundred just like we do for final four. This is the only time that i hope this ever happens. And i say that. As the potential host of all these gains college basketball's march madness is scheduled to start march sixteenth and run through april fifth for npr news. I'm samantha horton in

A Conversation with Whitney Johnson
"Whitney. Welcome to the show andy. I am delighted to be here. I'm excited to to talk to you. Because i liked your book a lot. So you know some and we didn't write for sales audience per se but as a lot of very sales specific stuff in there. I thought at least maybe the lens. I read it so i can't wait to chat with you about it but one thing i wanted to ask sign. Hopefully you're well. Were recording this in the midst of the the lockdown sidano omit the formalities. But we are well for asking. I mean it's one of those questions that it used to be just a nice city but it's now a real question is a real question right. What's good and you're joining us from where we live in lexington virginia so my my husband is a professor at southern virginia university which is also near virginia military institute and washington and lee. So we're about three hours driving south west of washington dc. So is that out neuronal them. Yes yes that's our closest airport is about fifty miles away. Wow okay so having lived in big cities or served doing a little more not so rural but smaller city living. It's definitely rural. We completely disrupted ourselves. I mean why give you look outside of our window in the morning we can see deer and there are cows next door to us in fact when we very first moved here. Because we've lived in boston in manhattan in large cities when we first moved here. I remember waking up one morning. And i like hitting hitting but like you know pulling my honey honey. Turn off your phone. Because it was buzzing buzzing any turnover. And he's like those. Are the cows unbend an adjustment for us. I find one. I'm away from manhattan anywhere. I go but like my visit. My sister in wisconsin. And both my wife and i get woken up by the quiet. It's like it's too quiet and it's like wait. Why are we going every week. And you're accustomed to having the noise outside all the time that are. Do you know at some level that that it's too quiet attack keeps me up. I love that looking at by the quiet. So i was gonna ask you. Are you follow soccer fan. Because you wrote that you are going to produce a reality. Tv show about sauerland america and listeners. To show that. I'm a avid soccer fan. Oh i wish. I could say that i am. I got really excited. So this This is actually almost fifteen years ago. Now where i. I was a huge american idol. Fan in a huge. So you think you can dance fan. And and i was doing a lot of work in latin america was equity analyst. And so you know. I've been to mexico fifty times to spend a lot of my doing work a lot. American one of our companies that we followed on as equity analyst was televisa which time was basically abc cbs nbc and fox combined and again this is fifteen years ago and so we thought wait. We have an opportunity here to basically do you know. Soccer meets american idol and just got so excited about the stories of that could have produced on so while. I'm not a soccer fan per se. I am a cinderella story fan and i just thought that that could have been an amazing august show to have produced. I wanna watch for sure. So the regular listeners. Get accustomed going off on soccer stuff here. Tangents everything relates to soccer. Soccer explains the world. There was a book that wrote that. So about that so I think i read that book. Actually it was a good book. Yeah yeah so Pet the author on the show. So so we're talking about transformation personal transformation you. I've really enjoyed your book. Which you've just updated and re released disrupt yourself masterless change and speed up your learning curve. So what was the original impetus. Write the book you know. That's one of those questions that its you can answer many different ways on. But let me see. If i can streamline so that we're not here all day on you know as i just mentioned i was equity analyst. Were keep merrill lynch In a focusing on stocks in latin america like televisa so like america melville and this is back in two thousand three two thousand four. I read the book. The innovators dilemma by christian at harvard. Business school and i remember reading that book and it just was in many a transformative experience. If you will. Because i was looking at wireless at the time in every single quarter america. Mobile was beating my numbers like just every time and and telmex numbers weren't so that was the wireline company. In american mobile was the wireless i read. I read innovators dilemma. I said oh. That's what's going on. Is that wireless is disrupting wireline. And i was just fascinated. That there was a s- theory that could explain to me the world and help me understand what was happening And the more. I read that book it more i started. I think maybe just because of my own personal bent started thinking. Well how does this apply to me. Like i understand. It's explained products and services in companies in countries. But i also remember having this moment in just two thousand four. And i had just had this conversation with Someone in management saying you know what really liked to try something else. I'd like to do something else attorney. I'd like to go into management kind of laughed at me. Kind of snickered. Like ov- outs nice. That's never going to happen. And i remember coming back to that book and being you know what if i wanna do whatever it is. I think i'm meant to do which i had a very vague notion. I think many of us do I'm going to have to disrupt myself. I'm gonna have to leave wall street and go do something else.
Remember When? 2020
"Is interesting for me again keeping the remember when like personal. This is where we spend a lotta time. We're we no longer see it as player in the flesh for the rest of the year. Either of us since where it becomes it's very divergent path right that from here on where like a one hand like. I'm not leaving home. Match like we have like a night of looking like may fifth rewatch korean baseball together and adopt the nc diagnose diagnose in the how camps dyno's jeff passan his pinkerton behind him and stuff like that. So we're on our own and you know doing our own. Things have watching not only connect. Whatever we're doing to keep ourselves sane afloat and tennis players meanwhile are like having these very different ways of coping. Go various out most of them. We don't hear from at all right muslim. Just go off grid. I will say that that's absolutely true. Most of them have just shut off so the ones we hear from early the outliers right but also larger the more prominent in late april or even it was late. March was already in march. Like it's poss- put up this flog of himself alone. His monica apartment. Where in this yellow raincoat is like stream of consciousness thing where he's like losing his mind like he doesn't know how to function he's also like not with his family that's sort of like argument or something in their various flares that we saw earlier in the year with mentioned that. Adp cup saying like his mother like you know the him at a press conference basically so he's on his own journey there and like some the first things we see some of them are really positive like we see like venus williams during this year's one of like sort of a low key like warning actors like bit role but like remember remember when venus williams got greek or damaged optic flasher. Exactly what i was gonna say. What a queen. Venus harass gregoire showing ads dramatically colossus the ground in performance ecstasy and. It's just a lovely moment of venus is like having a really you know again. I felt bad about similar to the fire. Donation topic like rating people on. How they're handling this thing. But like venus is somebody who like really like seemed to be like at peace like really opening up being way more talkative than she had all year like. There's one of the things. I found him looking. This is skipping ahead like lexington. She does like after she beat via. First round gives this unbelievably a few sive. Chatty postmatch interview. It's just been so mike which is like for the last several years in terms of what she's like in not being very revealing a reticent to share too much open up too much has been very different venus so we have that now the other hand we have things emerging like you know. Say this the novak djokovic stuff where i quietly. He's talking about or on a certain serbian channel. He says things that are if not definition of what we consider antitax at least vaccine. Skeptical in vaccine. Chilling say. I don't know exactly what to put in. Then he touching these instagram wives which you know venus is doing flirted with record time of the people in and and and if only judge just flirted with dmitrov harmless he could've done it was right therefore with an option. This is the college novak where instead he by early he was doing his a few instagram's With turbine jafaria wellness grew guy to joke. Which is somewhat credit. I don't know exactly what happened here. They stopped by mid mayton one more. After basically i people started started combat. For what ridiculous nonsense being spewed in them so we just all tennis players like what a tennis player was tennis star celebrity without the thing that makes them why we care which is tennis. Excellent right and we're left with these pictures of people who stop paying their coaches right away was a big theme like all these top top players stop paying their. That was a really big. That was a really bad really was mentioned a few times and it really explain like because you you learned about it and yes no. I know. I was really struck by how within days. What was it like before the week of in usama. How fast set move your mortgage. That players immediately. Cut off the payment to their coaches who they are the sole employers of in there not not almost all like Every coach was estimated was more than ninety percent of coaches. Weren't getting paid at this point. It was it was. That's fine but i'm just saying when you say that oil like ebay. But but you'd only coaches were not getting paid and it just sort of like selfishness of tennis players end. We see tennis players as being very focused in very driven motivated and in this pandemic must have a crisis a lot of times that revealed that turned into self centeredness self-focused self-centeredness turn to selfishness. Turn to lack of care for other people right and to me. I saw this sort of across the board cutting off of the payroll department of their personal tennis. Teams their coaches who are people who invest their whole careers in helping you do well. The second you stop getting you missed one check. They get cut off and a lot of these players. Have making lots of money. Didn't have to bisley anyway. It me the wrong way seeing these these athletes granted. They're not in a fixed salary. They were not getting guaranteed income but for them to immediately cutting people's pay very quickly and even like occasionally federation like tennis. Australia started for furlough employees very fast and that bothered me a lot too because they had a full twenty twenty australian open and they had a folk coffers and they i think by i dunno april or so. They're already furloughing employees. I thought that was crazy. And they're going to be painful full prize money in if they go it in whatever a lot of the mountain workout and just a lot of a lot of. I was getting various enchanted with tennis and tennis players tennis players because there was no tennis but tennis players were not impressed. Me overall with their conduct. Yes you had venus doing
Remember When? 2020
"Welcome to new challenges remaining our usually annual most years we get around to it remember when episode four twenty twenty. I've been rothenberg. Always remember my dear friend courtney win. Hi courtney how are you. I'm doing well then. And how are you happy. December happy december to you as well. We were just sort of talking before we started recording about how this like year feels very different for this show. Like remembering things experiencing things was very different in twenty twenty and there's obviously know like a very clear break on in the episode about in chronologically when we stopped when we were going to things and we stopped going to things we experienced things remotely and in person. So i'm just curious before we forget started like what was this exercise of. Try and get notes together or wherever for twenty twenty. How how did it feel in vague terms. Yeah i think the initial challenge for me was trying to divorce. How i felt about the twenty twenty tennis season literally the encore results and the story lines and the narratives of what would be normal tennis. You know under any other circumstance trying to divorce that or untangle that in my feelings about that from my feelings about two thousand twenty as a year and it you know. I don't anybody who has listened to. Ncr is throughout you know since february knows about you know the arc and the struggles. I think both of us have had with respect to once. The shutdown came and once so much uncertainty hit the tennis tour but even more so so much uncertainty hit our lives in addition to just living in the midst of a deadly global pandemic that it was just hard to care about what was happening after march. And maybe obviously. I think that that you can talk about it separately from your experience for myself. There was an uptick of that once tennis returned so once we got back to to to to work for me effectively in palermo and palermo rolled into prague and progress into lexington rolled into cincinnati new york. A and you know. It was really nonstop but my memories of january and february so being in australia and then being in doha which was my final tournament site are so much more vivid and crisp and clear in my head compared to the effectively. What eight weeks or so of tennis smith longer than that. I suppose but but tennis that we got once we returned in july. It's all very much a mushy pile of potatoes From from august on yet. Because for me. I feel very similarly and for me. It's weird because usually did remember when episodes the tricky parts. The hazy parts is january. Right is the beginning of the year. The stuff at ten eleven months has passed since we've experienced it of piecing together like. Oh yeah i remember this that whatever. And that's still kinda the case in twenty twenty like those are still like descendant memories but they're also in some ways the clearest ones we have because those are what we were there in person for. And i'm thinking about how experienced the french open which was the most recent major tennis event right. It was me sitting at my desk and my computer. Which is something i've been doing. You know in various forms since in this room since april whether it was binge-watching british game shows or watch enough it all kind of just like in the same place in senior doesn't change and we're so used to these rhythms of being along the travelling circus tour and having this scenery shift all the time. Even if the players say the same the people say the same largely lake having it. Be a moving picture in here. Only very small part of the picture. Move ray at our screens moved and so that makes it like it. It makes it much smaller. If like you're if you're watching. Were staring an envelope. Only the postage stamp is changing. It's still the same envelope and that's sort of how it feels for parts of it. So it's it's a less a lot of it's going to be a lesser visceral memories. We have things like you know even like big things like jovic getting defaulted from the us open. Let's say like a big like remember where you were when you did. That was like yeah. It was my room like it's very pinky and the brain. Like what are you going to do tonight. What are we gonna do tonight. brain. We're gonna do what we do every night. Pinky we're going to try and take over the world. It this is. The pandemic has kind of felt like that in a lot of ways. It's like what were you doing. What i did the entire pandemic. That's what i was doing when x happened when this happened. It's just like you know it. It's yeah it's it's tough. It's tough to sort it out and you're right. I think that the lack of change of scenery and just and you know as just common sense like the lack of electricity. That we in an adrenalin data today. One that we are used to enjoying not enjoying like a good time but like that we get the benefit of the adrenaline. Were running on fumes during slams. I mean like it's exhausting. It's a very high stress environment but it. It helps you to your job and here. It's like rolling out of bed every day at one thirty. A m forcing myself to go to sleep at four. Pm the night before like all of this sort of stuff you know it For weeks on end trying to get excited about something. That's happening in the middle of the night like i'm so clearly you know when we're in australia. We know what's happening in the middle of the night in the us. But it's not the middle of the night for us there but here like covering the french open at four five o'clock in the morning west coast time. It was hard. it was hard to motivate. And therefore you're distracted you're distracted you can't really focus on thing that's happening. I'm not a neurologist. Obviously but i do feel like there has to be some sort

"To It's been in her. Life honestly haven't changed a whole lot other than she really was my shadow the entire time. Yeah but other than. That too, but has it. has this affected you more in the sense of like yourself like? Madam near felt this amount of stress before finally I feel like I'm able to do exactly what I want or or is it more like? I don't feel anything just whatever now. It not. You know you can get yourself worked up and you can get stressed out or you can get excited and yes all those emissions are good things. But maintaining control of them in kind of taking it at a task. Kinda helps for me because you don't over think it. Because once you start thinking things you kind of lose sight of really what's important. Like. I said look at paint colors all day long. But I went to. Sherwin Williams at lunch day picked out three colors. I, decided from them I said. All right. This is what we're GONNA do. And I had my friend look at it and he's like. Okay. And aside it looks I've had compliments on my pink colors pretty much. Every person that's walked in and. I didn't think about it too much. So I was like, yeah, I like color color going to work with make it work. So. It's exactly what I want. But. I cannot though manage if it wasn't. Yeah. I like that. Because sometimes I feel like. We get the people who are like Oh my God. This has to be my dream I'm going to be here for the rest of my life right and so everything has to be exactly the way it is. At the GECKO. But at the same time, it's like Ten years ago I mean. I I wore a pink shirt I don't know. What I mean like these change, I may not like it anymore so. That's why I like your viewpoint. You know what I mean where it's like hey, right now it's I. Don't hate it I don't really love it. It could change a my love. Later on. So I bought. Like for example, I had bought lake the chairs and the couch, the waiting room and I left one day and the brand new girls for like. better like this than we should do this method. Alright not fine. To me as long as happy, that's that's. Honestly, more important things that are going to change and if I had the same couch near thirty years from now, that's going to be a problem. Throw couch doesn't have to be perfect and it can change as long as the staff is happy and that's what they want that. Works for me. Yeah that's awesome already, and thank you so much for being with us today. It was a pleasure but before we say goodbye, can you tell our listeners where they can find you?

let's put her in jail my it's too late yeah my brother lives a scammer got my dad hooked up into a scammer gave him with the bottom line is is the money's gone and nobody was willing to prosecute while you could so now we just have to broke all people to give their money away yes now they make a good salary they make about fifty five thousand a year and then they have assets in about sixty five worth of sixty five thousand reserve assets no no income coming in the sense that they have she took them off okay so what's creating the sixty five thousand pensions annuities my dad there would be an asset much as in the annuity I you know it's through the state I don't know that I don't know anything now they they no it gets better they had a home equity loan and she went through three hundred thousand I'm going with her okay I'm done with her she's gone they didn't prosecute her let's move on okay I don't wanna talk about is them how much money they have now yeah sure yeah man okay

you may he may end up in a nursing home and you all may be funding so that are you may have to pay for some in home care to come care for him or if you may sell the house and move them in with one of you all but they can definitely make it on sixty five thousand and it's just a horrid shame that your sisters and her husband are corrupt and that no one was willing to put them in where they belong in jail but that's just gone that's water under the bridge now you can't live in that anger because no one was willing to do anything about it at the time the people that were necessary to sound the

that's all in the past now we're down to pretty simply to all people one with dementia the make fifty sixty five thousand dollar your income they've sixty five thousand on a mortgage on three thousand dollar house that's it and so you've either got to downsize them in house and get rid of the mortgage and then they can afford to bring in help in that situation to take care of him or we've got to find different living arrangements for him if he's unable to care for himself and that's the process you go through I'm sorry what a horrible horrible fine that you guys have been through and I don't

"But necessarily haven't done that yet. He's young guys they've got to make a name for themselves. And this is the place to do it. I mean Kentucky has already celebrated the season in Times Square. Time square. This game has even kicked off yet. You're celebrating and lex you got about While while you can't you can't. next week. I let me ask you. What about let's think about the worst scenario for Georgia? Yeah. Let's say Kentucky wins this game. What are the Georgia fans? What's the reaction? I mean here it'll be absolute ecstasy. But what's the reaction if they lose lose the SEC and lose it to conduct? Yeah. You know? Well, you know, this curvy smart, the people bleed he's got a dynasty in the making George that would kind of derail that narrative. Yeah. That'd be pretty pretty steep fall from grace. I think it would affect recruiting as well. So this is an absolute must win for Georgia football. It's Kirby continues to ascend try to get on that Alabama. Love. They got a lot of five star guys. But Benny tells you those five stars don't matter. Benny was the three star. He said, hey, those ratings that these other players have higher than them Kentucky says throw them out the window. They're just as good Jon Allen was a two star. The only other offer had was Monmouth. And he might be the best defensive player in Georgia's got back it up. I mean, if they want to go out there with these star ratings, and these recruiting classes and this narrative that Kirby smart has George on the verge of dynasty. This is the game. You got to win and they had their loss on the road at LSU. Let's say let's see if Georgia has grown up enough to handle this environment. That's waiting for him. Because I know it's going to be a mad house in there tomorrow, you just you just opened up. I think is really intriguing in because this was not Georgia fans. I think we're realistic. This was. Not a national championship team. But they were expecting at least to get to Atlanta. And and take a shot at a minimum. They've got to win the east for the season to be considered. The fact that it is Kentucky doesn't need raise the stakes. I mean, if you lose to Florida, maybe no shame in that traditional power. You lose to Kentucky recruits on the phone wanting to know what's going on. And maybe even checking Kentucky out on some visits. I actually think for Kentucky. This is one of those sort of recruit making game. I mean, they they they have taken the view they are bringing in literally the biggest recruits this the biggest recruiting weekend they've ever had here in terms of the players that are coming in. And you're right. This is kind of a make or break game. But I'm back to that mentality of sort of being derailed. I always thought that Georgia was next like, it was just I don't know. How long savings got left next say they lose this game Auburn next week in the disappointment bowl. Right. Yeah. I would say so in Georgia does look like they're next. They've got a lot of young talent. There's a lot. Guys that are still emerging on this George team. You know, it's the youngest team in the SEC more than two thirds of the Georgia rosters freshman and sophomore. So if they were to lose, which I don't think they will join away don't think they would if they were to lose. It would definitely be. Bury the lead. So you're not fricking Kentucky to win this game picking Dougie to win this game. Football, right? Right. Right. Let me just say this. I know you need to take this interview. Phone. Call Georgia is a wonderful institution. Athens is a great place to be you all just hired. Tom crane is your basketball coach Tom Crean sales in mediocrity. And I cannot wait to watch tomorrow Kentucky. I think is going to show that this Georgia team has L overrated going into the season. Now, listen, I think they'll be back. They'll be back was a really good point. This team has freshmen sophomores next year. They're going to be on top of the east again. But I feel like this is Kentucky's time, and I think they take them tomorrow. It could be it could be oldest youngest team. You know, you look at what you maybe Cal sends a couple of those basketball players pets. Basketball. The plays downfield because I don't see anybody. That's going to beat that Georgia's secondary tomorrow..

"Do his first years in shown Alexander Kentucky's. Oh, no that night. Do you? Do you think Georgia? I know this Kentucky defense is very good. How much respect to the Georgia coaches real? I know they realize how good Jon Allen is. But is it do other teams give as much respect to Kentucky's defense is say Kentucky fans and everybody around here Georgia does because I heard Jim Chaney at practice all week. And he reminded these guys over and over and over that Kentucky is number one in the nation in scoring defense. And all you had to do is look at the second half, Missouri to see that. I don't know if they got a first down. I mean, they dominated the second-half, Missouri. Did what they had to do. And that's what they've done all year Kentucky keeps finding ways. And that's what football's really all about numbers. Talking to Mike. And of course, Matt Jones here. Let's talk about the catch not the cats, but the dogs were amended in what we saw last week. How did it differ and what was done during that by week to propel them to that victory? Yeah. It was really important by week. We saw what LSU's pressure did did Jake from. I think they pressured him eleven times, and you completed two passes last week Jake was very good against pressure. I believe it was ten out of twelve and threw a touchdown pass. So they were able to work on their protection on the offensive line. Maybe work on some of those routes as well. And we saw JJ Hallam in emerge. I mean, Georgia's got so many young playmakers. You look on the preseason. All let's see offense. There's not one Georgia guy that was first team preseason all offense. And right now, they've got a couple of guys that are starting no merge. I'm interested in how Georgia chooses to defend Kentucky a lot of teams have put Missouri. Did this put a number guys in the box and basically dared Terry Wilson to throw the ball on for a lot of the game that. That worked. Do you think that will be Georgia's game playing basically try to shut down any snail and say, hey, somebody else out there has to be too. Well, you'd be crazy. If you let the other teams best player beat you. But that said Kirby has played a lot of deep and would really prefer to play the run with six guys and not give up the chunk place. That's something that Georgia has been very good at I believe they've only given up more than two plays longer than twenty five yards in one game. And that was LSU so early on. I think you'll see George try and see what it's going to take to stop Benny if it takes aided Kirby take eight he's not going to get beat by the run game. Ideally, that's his mentality. The ROY is not going to be what beats Georgia Kentucky's going to have to make some plays over the top. They ask you about mentality. And we we spent a lot of time. This we talk about what's his game means here. Let's factor in a couple of things Georgia's coming off of its biggest win of the year. It's an emotional win. Day. No, we're talking about here. But but. Fido at Kirby smart has said Georgia players really by in that they're at Ted Kentucky Kentucky. These aren't the same. George played beat Kentucky last year. I don't see Nick Kelvin Sony. Michelle running out that tunnel anytime soon right yet. Player of the year on Georgia's team. They got a lot of guys that have been there..

What's this life for you to return? Well, it's I mean this team has made it a ton of fun for all of us alums all season this year, and to have the the stakes we have on the line on Saturdays, really special, man. I can't get over. We sat here two years in about two weeks ago. And we were we were trying to be nice to prop up Mark Mark stoops's career chances of survival. You thought he was done. I didn't think he was done. But I they need to win that game. That I mean Austin McGuinness had a field goal. And if he missed it. I don't know what happens, but you know, Jacob played the last time there was a game. Like this game day was here the play Kibo played Florida. But I would by the way. This is bigger than that terms of the fact, you can win the SEC, and there's you know this. There's a lot of fans Kentucky fans who've been waiting their entire lives for tomorrow. I think it's going to be a big thing. They used is on the line is the biggest gain. We've had Kentucky football thirty years. Fifty years. I don't know forever long as I've been alive. So that is what makes it so special and this team just this defense. Incredible incredible. And I think I'm gonna say right now our offense surprises some people tomorrow. So we've got a thing we got a chance you realize, but I started thinking on the plane coming over. I I was in the stadium in nineteen seventy seven when Tennessee played half. And that was a significant. That was the only other time. There have been two teams play. This highly ranked in Lexington was was that year. And here's the all you gotta say Tuesday night taking place Duke in basketball. They do. Nobody's talking. Like we spent entire show today. My radio show and didn't even mention it..

"We'll knock him out again. If you want to understand, what makes Kentucky success. So that was they're playing to win. And it's being of a run the ball stopping the run. And then it's their pass rushers. Getting after the passer Kentucky as well when their head. They play terrible when they're behind. So you look at the games that they've been behind AM couldn't score an offense couldn't get past the fifty and then against against Missouri. And so when they fall behind, and it's not they get out of their game plan, then they they dramatically drop us how good of a team they are. So I think it's important for Kentucky to. Yes. Playing have that game plan to win. But you've got to find a way to get Terry going early and not just with the passing game with this lakes. Listen, he's the legit four three runner. Get him going find a way quarterback draws keepers boots. But let him play with confidence. I feel like the second half. He didn't play with confidence until the last drive. But did that last drive that last play give him a spark to play in this game in this stadium with? Confidence. Again that Georgia team. I think that'll be key before you go. I don't forget about Baton Rouge. It certainly a fascinating game. And you've been asked about it all day, and all I'm sure all week just among friends, but what is your Cessna of what LSU faces tomorrow night? Well, I think they face the best team in the country. And I think they face the juggernaut. It's really tough. But I think the keys to win for LSU is number one. You've got to find a way to get multiple turnovers. I think if you get turnovers you give yourself a chance second. I think you got to force Alabama to kick field goals. They're going to move the ball. But don't give them six. Don't give up the big touchdowns. Enter the game breakers. Find a way to stay in by making them stopping them on third and goal. Finding them away to just have to kick. Right. Even if you're behind give yourself a chance and the third quarter. And then I think there Joe borough has to find a way to get third down conversions with his lakes because Alabama it's gonna combo coverage. Take away your Cevers. And so he can get by the defensive line, then he can. Convert and that keeps the ball out of two hands. And it keeps the crowd into it. I think those three things will be key. So many interesting games tomorrow. Tim, thanks for braving the cold in in just a shirt, not a store bucks jacket. Like, I have or a ski cap I'm in fresh. Did they love TV?

You're you are working you're doing a lot of visiting your you're you're learning. You're talking to people you're talking to students. This is not just hey, let's go. Let's go cheer at a football game walked into the the game in Jacksonville, the Georgia and Florida game last week or Florida Georgia depending on which side you're on. I just want to be fair about that. And I was there through the through halftime. And I did not see, but maybe two snaps the football just visiting with people. We have a great relationship with the gator bowl folks there. We've had some championship events in Jacksonville. The city leaders have been great host toss. And obviously the university athletic department leadership TV, folks. And then next thing, you know, you're on the move. So that's part of the job. And we'll get to watch plenty of football on Sunday on. Some replays. And then the video center, maybe not some great play. So such great plays on Mondays usually are com. No. You know, the the cycle is tomorrow wake up, and there's just great anticipation. Sunday's a bit of triage, depending on what's taken place Monday. We go onto video review most of that's with our -ficiating group. But I'll go in Monday morning and then Monday through Wednesday. You know, the blood pressure's little bit higher in hopefully calms down by Thursday Friday, but we're looking for a good day tomorrow. Because we are in Kentucky and basketball's on the night. Follows us on on the SEC network. Oh, I wanna get your thoughts on that. Because there's been so much conversation about this league in basketball. And I know that you have you have shepherd pushed hard to elevate the status, and it all came together last year in March with the significant number eight in in the SEC, we we've had multiple guests on who are going higher than that some say eight nine ten I mean, the enthusiasm for this league is is is at a level that I'm not familiar with. I think that's right. In fact, I can remember first time, I visited Kentucky's campus Florida was one Kentucky was foreign basketball was Billy Donovan and tubby Smith that rough arena, and it was an incredible atmosphere. And that's from someone who grew up going to games in the carrier dome in no better atmosphere. And then the two thousand is when across the league, we just didn't perform at that level. And. I've told you before you credit Mike sly with with raising the conversation when he was chair the men's basketball committee, and then three years ago, we made some adjustments. You saw some coaching hires some facility investments that are still taking place there down working on route now, and that'll be a two year cycle is I understand. But what's happened to Florida? George old miss and their facilities. Mississippi State just announced a facility investment, which makes it serves as a foundation, and you've got coaches in this league that have these resumes that they brought to the SEC. So they weren't coming here to build the resume. They came here with a resume, and I think all of that's combined to put us in this position where we have high expectations, which we should we have that in every sport. And we just we didn't see it men's basketball. It's nice to have that reality back with us. Now that won't make January February much fun because of the intensity it will for the fans. I well. Anyway, I it always a pleasure to see you Commissioner congratulations again on on Monday. Thirtieth anniversary. Thank you. Next time we see each other. Let's make it warm. I have I have fun thoughts of this. And I think about us when we get together and destined, and it's just a little bit. Sure.

The support building baseball stadiums magnificent, but they've done that responsibly, and that's a testament to campus leadership, and that's a testament department leadership in. Awards are the ability to build the program the way, they have and basketball gets underway here a couple of hours and fans are certainly enthusiastic about that. And. Duke on on Tuesday night. Oh, big deal. Fact in Indy for that game kick off the season. I'm sorry. I had to make the change kick off the season. Yeah. And and it's it's interesting in basketball Kentucky's had this great success. But like in the last few years, I've been asked about Alabama football. And as it good to have this team that so far ahead. But I think in any of these programs, Tennessee, women's basketball, those LSU baseball that have had this sustained success. They set a level that everyone wants to achieve and that just elevates everyone of our programs, and that's true around men's basketball that we'll see this year where last year eighty eight teams in the NCAA tournament, and perhaps that level or more but intensely competitive, and that's what we're used to in the sport of football. And you're seeing it here. Lexington. I'm always intrigued by your travel schedule. Because it's it's it's almost every fan stream James says you got to go tonight. You'll see basketball tomorrow you'll be here part of the day. And then you head the Baton Rouge. That's pretty good double header for any fan at my doctor has always said how you get two games.

But that's quite an accomplished the arduous for her probably. Probably. There have been times in our relationship. When I started in this business where it's like you have to go to another football game. She understands better now, but she's been a part of it through the whole journey, and it's been a remarkable tale. So in terms of your travel, though, I'm always interested in this. How far out do you map it because you like soccer? You know that it's going to be on that Sunday. You know, pretty much know the Alabama LSU game is going to be monstrous. So do you is it is it planned very far in advance? Or do you look looking? Okay. I think this week to go here. Yes. And no, you know, next week. I'm going to have the privilege of being Whiteman air force base in Missouri. They fly the b two's last year at the Rose Bowl. I watched that happen. I ended up at at a dinner table with the commanding officer and CO and they invited me to spend a day with their leadership team. Those are the really fun those experiences. So I'll start in July trying to pencil some things, and I don't go terribly far out. Just trying to be at games, or there may be a reason for me to see someone or an issue last week. I went to games this week. Oh, ten to games. And I think the doubleheaders are done for the year the balls on Thursday night. So so that's an easy one. My general. Philosophy is to visit every campus once and see every team play twice..

"Insurance. So he switched and save. Then he did kind of touchdowns at least he was still good at that. We're welcoming in Commissioner of the southeastern conference Commissioner Sankey wh- what a weekend for college tomorrow. It's one of those weekends. You hope will happen. Great game in Jacksonville last week. They had a lot of meaning and into this week, and you can't draw it up better than what we're gonna see tomorrow. If you're watching and you're wondering, why is the Commissioner sitting there and a jacket next to a guy who? Who who looks like he's at the North Pole differences. I grew up in the south, and he grew up in upstate and say, this is July fourth. Here's upstate New York. It's a cool. Chris blustery forty degree day here that feel that to me is like the end of the world. But I fought all these students here who are just having a blast. And they're and they're about to not only say that the Commissioner, but their head football coach here and just a couple of minutes. And let's talk about that. Because there are a lot of familiar stories and one of them is a Baton Rouge. We see to traditional SEC powers playing in that familiar primetime slot, but not many people in media days predicted, maybe you missed but predicted this the the the the path to Atlanta through the SEC not great at predictions actually last year in a conversation with Mitch Barnhart Kentucky out off to great start. We had a conversation where mid said, you know, we're still in the hunt for the championship. And this was probably second week of October. And it's just an education in that expectation never. Dying and marks had to build a program rebuild the program. And you've seen that progress year to year on the reward is a little bit of patience. Sometimes that's hard patients pays off in your here with a chance to win an east division title and a game tomorrow, and we had the UK president couple of minutes ago. Somebody you've been friends with a long time, and he talked about the investment here and that commitment, and and I've said this I'll say it again two years ago, we were sitting here in this place was was on edge about the future. And it is interesting in. You appreciate when when people can block out the noise, it's not easy to do. You may have seen over the last couple of weeks a little bit of noise around. I have what I do. And it's not, and I'll tell you that's a lesson from our coaches and all share snus, so what Dr cavalier shared and what you'll probably hear from Mitch is true. But you look at our coaches in their focus week to week because you have to deal with the success successor disappointment and go back to your priorities and to do that here. I was here last time. I was here for a cold football game was Andreville different head coach..

"Pretty high level of enthusiasm on a beautiful forty three degree day. I've been all over the country this week to to the east coast other parts, this is the coldest place, then, but it's the hottest place when it comes to atmosphere and enthusiasm. If you haven't heard by now Kentucky hosting Georgia tomorrow. We know one election. Remember crowd and great atmosphere for these guys. Probably these games stadium. I'm excited for for our players. They've worked sir streaming hard to be put in this position. You don't get games like this, unless you don't, you know, let's take care of the business that you have to throughout the season at Scone be what I what I've been dreaming about is going to be that that big moment that big game. That's going to be a fight to the their their fiscal football team. They get they get after you never really well really experience to you know, they got some seasons. Guys who played a lot of football championships to win the SEC east as big as we want program be certainly going here. I feel like everybody overlooks they always were the underdog. And we look at that as motivation. We've made it this far, you know, but we still got more. We still got more games to win still got more people to prove wrong. Well, they do. And it's pretty amazing when you. Think about the last time we were here two years ago on a couple of weeks ago for the Mississippi State game a lot hung in the balance and quitting the future of Mark soups. That's no longer a debate. Here. He is well in concert with this program and a chance to do something. Very rare tomorrow. Meanwhile, there is another huge game the SEC west is at stake as well in Baton Rouge. You can often read things into what Nick Sabin says. And what he doesn't say. Have you heard about what he said last night? Well, honest with you. I hope we elect to kick ass is what I hope we do. But. Mandate. Listen, I consider myself a pretty high ranking Sabin, Allah gist. I don't ever remember Nick Saban showing that type of confidence before and LSU game of all games. But read into that what you may Alabama on its way to Baton Rouge the whole country watching both this game and that game. Yes. You see has had many big games. But rarely has it had a double header like it has beginning three thirty here. Tomorrow. I know Tuesday night was Halloween, but I'm dressed up as as a snowman today welcoming in winter to the Commonwealth. Let's get going with the calls at eight five five to four to seven to eight five and Andre in the AT L starts us off code one in the world. No, one cares about the university of Kentucky and the university of Georgia this weekend. You know, what by to talk about coq found? Chrome? Background KOMO coat. Everybody's causing trade trading. A whole nation is looking at Baton Rouge, Louisiana Nickerson. That's what the whole nation looking at. We wanna see big boy ball. I hope it's a good game code. What do you think? I disagree. I think in many ways this game is more intriguing than that game. We've seen that movie before. Komo. I can't tell you. How many times I've gone to tiger stadium expecting something different to happen? And the same thing always seems to happen. Alabama wins. I know, you know, George gotta be Kentucky. Are you rented new? George run school bullet up on that L as you can give them a good game. Coach I really do. Listen. I heard Colin cowherd half bad this week on the radio even dough heated like it after the committee voted on the con- playoff. Who? Did you say? ESPN? Okay. See if the best confident at much he doesn't like it. He stated that the number one ranked undefeated team the number one, right? One loss team to Laos team and three laws all those in And the car. the college football playoff. Hold off a one comp he says, not good for college football. But the SEC, hey, Andrei, let let me say this, and I say this with Collins of personal friend of mine. Here's what he thinks about the the poll come on. Yeah. You're right about that coach. He's a pundit..
