"Going to be the most negatively impact the middle class, if you will, not the group of 5 ones, but the ones where the 7 and 5 power 5 teams go now. And Stewart, this may not be the best weekend to ask, considering the ACC game is clearly off Broadway, the SEC game lost some of its zest with LSU losing to a and M. So these conference championship games, which are currently valued by television networks, what's going to happen in terms of their value. I assume they keep going, but for what? Well, I think they become much more valuable, right? I mean, like you said, the ACC one is this year. Neither of those teams has a shot at the playoff. So it's important to their fans. It's probably of curiosity to the rest of the ACC. Nobody nationally is going to care about that game. In this system, the winner of that game is going to the playoffs. It's the 6th highest ranked conference champs and I assume I have to assume the power 5 leagues champs will be among those 6. So to me, it really energizes conference championship weekend. Now, some people will say, Alabama should rest their starters in the SEC game because they're going to make the playoff regardless. I still think it's really important to the teams, the coaches, the players, a conference championship is still very important to them. It might not mean as much to casual fans, but I don't see a day where they're going to blow off the conference championship game. I could be totally wrong. So I mean, that's to me one of the positives of this system is that every conference championship game pretty much has playoff implications. Let me get a thought before you go about the playoffs. We know Michigan is going to the playoffs and we are learning this afternoon that Blake coram is going to be out. He was certainly Michigan's all American running back. I know he was hurt during the game and they still were able to hold on, hold on with being understatement. But how big a blow is that? Is Michigan gets ready for the playoffs? Yeah, big blow. No question. Now they figured out a way against Ohio State to do it without him basically. Now Donna Edwards is a really good running back. He had those two huge touchdown runs toward the end of the Ohio State game. But basically, I think in that game, I think that Michigan just totally blindside Ohio State with their ability to throw the ball down field because that's not something that was not their bread and butter going into the game. Now that that gig is up, if you was not an element of surprise, you would love to have Blake forum run the ball 35 times against Georgia, USC, TC, right, whoever they end up drawing in the playoffs. So I do think it's a big loss for Michigan. But I don't think it's going to cause them to straight too far from their identity. I mean, Jim Harbaugh is always going to want to establish their own and then build a little bit of play action off of that. Stuart, before you go, it certainly been a big story here. I realized around the country, eyebrows were raised, continued to be over the hue freeze hiring at auburn. How did you see it from your end of the country out west? I don't think I realized how unpopular you freezes until this hiring was made. I mean, obviously, we all know what happened at all miss he has since gone on to be a really successful coach at liberty. So look, I do not condone what Q freeze did and especially that recent direct message to the sexual assault survivor. But I guess sometimes we just assume that in college football in the SEC particular automatic is winning and losing. So here's a guy who beat Nick Saban twice in a row, had a huge impact on the SEC. Just from a football standpoint, he's a good coach and I think auburn should be excited to have him from that standpoint, but it has been interesting to see how divided the fan base is. You look at if you go look at the tweet where auburn officially announced it and go into the replies, I realized people might be impersonating an auburn fan. I don't know. But there's a lot of negativity. So it'll be interesting to see how he navigates that like with anything if you win football games. People seem to forget the rest. So but it will continue to be a storyline obviously until he actually kind of gets going there. Stewart mandel with the athletic always great to have Stewart as we begin with the big news of the day and that's the expansion for 24. We head to the break a lot more to do on our show. Don't forget tomorrow live from the SEC championship game. In Atlanta. You were listening to the Paul finebaum show podcast. Lions, tigers, and tailgates. Oh my. The college football season is always a great time of year. Besides the jerseys, the face paint, and the foam fingers, there's the food. And nothing gets you more fired up for game day than eckrich smoked sausage. They're naturally hardwood smoked and have the perfect blend of spices. From buffalo sausage dip to sausage chili Mac and cheese, eckrich smoked

AJ Shares the Time He Was Asked for His ID - at Age 57
"Can't go out too much because I get in fights. Verbal altercations that if it was ten, 15, 20 years earlier it would be physical fight. I know they would be. So, you know, we all get geared up to go out, grocery shopping, whatever. And there's a big store out here in LA called Ralph's, right? That's the main one. And I thought Ralph's every couple of days to pick some stuff up. I don't like doing a major shop. I actually like going to a grocery store. I enjoy it. I enjoy that atmosphere. You know, everybody's wearing masks, which is fine. And I don't have a problem with that. So I went to go pick up some stuff. Excuse me. And I picked a wine up for the wife, a few stupid things, some chicken, whatever. And I'm going to check out the guy, big, big tall, big, muscular black guy who says sales manager on his fucking shirt. Never saw him before. New guy, and he goes to me, sir. And by the way, he had gloves on, but they weren't surgical gloves. They were gardening gloves, which I found insane. And I could tell the way he was like standing upright and kind of back from the conveyor belt that he wanted no part of germs. I could see this guy. Like a black Howie Mandel. So, you know, the wine goes down the thing and he goes, sir, I'm gonna need to see it to my D and I said, excuse me? He said, ID. I need to see some ID for the alcohol. I said, ID for the wine. Do you look at me? I said, this is a 57 year old person. You think I'm 21? Sir, I can, listen, it's not about that. I'm well within my right. I said, don't be ridiculous. You're well within your rights to be an idiot. This is so stupid. I'm coming here 20 years. No one's ever proved me for a bottle of wine, and I came here when I was 37, never happened. Now I'm 57. What are you out of your mind? Because that's it, you know what? That's it. I don't have to take care. I can ask you to leave. I said, good, I'll take this fucking mask off right now. I've had it. So I start lifting my mask, he got so panic stricken, like I was gonna spit in his face or something. Okay, sir, please. Please put your mans down. I said, okay, then just finish checking me. Just finish checking me out. I'm not gonna have this fucking argument. I said, people are so upset. People are so miserable and have had it with these things that are put in place every fucking day. Now on top of all this, you want to see my ID. My fucking hair is my ID. That's a 50, 7 year old old man's head. Fucking
Howie Mandel Makes an Ass of Himself on TikTok
"Howie Mandel, hi Scott, but crazy. And you meant he's crazy. Howie Mandel recently did this unfathomable and fallible posting on a TikTok that made everybody want to throw up. Throw up and discuss and find their ass cheeks and sympathy at the same time because whoever is poor person is he featured, well, hey, listen, he posted he tossed up this graphic video of somebody having an anal prolapse that he stitched over himself, okay? He said it was his friend. And he asked if COVID could have been the cause of the prolapse. Now, aside from that, he didn't give any of the context, no other explanation, no apologies. You know, he just had to get that joke out. And they said that this, you know, he posted the video to his TikTok account. This guy almost 10 million people will follow him. And people like, oh my God, what is he doing? But people really asked does somebody know, can this be COVID related? And if it is, what do we do about it and how we then set, I mean, come on, bro really, that human goes even too low for me, especially if you're not famous showing somebody else's asshole on TikTok and asking if that's a problem. But he took it down at the little one. That quickly,

"Welcome back, final hour, live Stewart mandel joining us in a few minutes more to talk about a lot happening in Andrew. Is in Athens and you are next up, a hello Andrew. Hey Paul, thanks for having me on. Thank you. I've got something to say about Senate to use a program. First off, then I got a question for you. Over and over, we see it every year. This time, we got to see it in all three sports. They just blow it every year. Bosses fans as well. We saw them throwing trash over the fields, players splitting off everybody. And now the buildup is already begun, hyping up football. We're going to see in football this year. And they're going to blow it. Won't even make the ST title game. It's going to get an ass kicking from the George bulldogs. It's going to happen. Thank you. Thank you. Nice to be a call. Lee is next in Georgia, legal. Yes. Hi there. Hello? Yeah. What does that say to me? It was reported earlier today through a federal open records request. That the athletic director at a and M sent the commissioner of the SEC a letter wanting Nick Saban to either be suspended or fined because of his work because of his comments about Jimbo. Fisher, he said that Sabin's comments were false, beneath the dignity of the SEC and corrosive to the fabric of sportsmanship in college football, it went on to call for a public apology from Sabin to Fisher and to a and M and added that the this was written to the commissioner added that the SEC should also consider monetary and participation penalties against Sabin, the new report said that after Nick Saban said what he did, this was on a Wednesday night that Gregg sanki, the commissioner, called Jimbo Fisher, that morning, and warned against going over the line in his press conference. Of course, how is the press conference that Jimbo Fisher called Sabin a narcissist and hinted at past recruiting irregularities, so this was all new. I mean, not to changes very much other than just to show how emphatic and insistent that the athletic director at a and M was in trying to seek some punitive damages from Sabin and also I think the most interesting thing is that Jimbo Fisher did not listen to any of the advice given to him by the commissioner of the southeastern conference. I would say probably not, no. What do you think he has? No. I mean, are you serious? I mean, Nick Saban may have, I mean, he may have gotten over the line, but it's not like Nick Saban Lee got up and said, Jimbo Fisher is this. I mean, Saban misspoke. I don't think there's any question about it. We all know that, but what is the commissioner of the SEC going to do? I mean, it ultimately the commissioner issued a reprimand to both parties of which consequences that have. Let's continue with more phone calls here and Greg is in Mississippi. Hello, Greg. Hello, Paul. I'd like to give a shout out to our coach van horn and the razorback baseball club. And I hope they go all the way. You know what I was. I have a sneaking feeling there. They just might. They're a great team and it's a great program. And I was switching gears a little bit, Paul. Do you have any thoughts on raise your back football this fall? Yes, I do. I think they're going to be really good. And I think with Jefferson or quarterback, they're in a really good spot. I think Pittman has recruited exceptionally well. You got one of the better offensive coaches in the country there. And the schedule to me could be a problem though. That's Cincinnati game. I think the win that one Cincinnati is somewhat of a shell of not a shell, but they're certainly in no way representative of what we saw last year. So many players are gone. A and M a and M once again will be a critical game a and M Alabama back to back. Alabama at home, BYU. There are some, that is a brutal stretch of a and M Alabama at state, dangerous game. Next week, at BYU, and then a week off, and then auburn even liberty. I mean, that's a real, I mean, who's got a schedule like that in the SEC. You look at some of these schedules, Cincinnati, BYU, liberty. I mean, those are all really high quality teams. They only have one what I would call absolute cream puff on the schedule. Thank you for the call. Appreciate it. Let's check out Randy is up next. Hey, Randy Gordon ahead. How are you doing today? Very well. Thank you. I wanted to see when is summer camp start a brook football. Are we around that time yet? Media days will start July 18th, Randy, 18th through the 21st. And usually camps will start probably at the end of the next week or maybe the beginning of the first week in August. A lot of it depends on when you are when you are starting your season, most everybody is starting Labor Day weekend. Hey, thank you very much for the call. Let's go to Kathy next in Georgia. Hello Kathy. Hi, Paul. Continuing with Jimbo and Nick. But they should do Jimbo the same way as a enamel to do against Sabin. Why aren't they on the day that against Jim bow, the people Nick Saban's character? They need to come up for that. I think in Alabama, Kathy, and you have an athletic director there who is not being petty and you're running down to the principal's office. He's just letting it all play out. And..

"Hey everybody, glad that you're back for another edition of just getting started. This is a really fun one for me because I called up my friend Dave mandel there he is on the screen and I said I really want you to come on and talk about comedy because life is pretty dark right now Dave and I just thought I needed someone to come on and share his experience with how he got started in the comedy world and writing and you were my number one call on your first thing that you said to me was you sure? And if you want to cancel on me, that's just fine and I thought well you're insane. Hi Dave, thanks for coming on. You know, I'm still waiting to be told any second now, oh, so and so just called back. So yeah, no, okay, I'll go for it. I was thrilled to have you come on because number one, you and I have talked about something related to this.

And it's a really hard not to cry. That is a very kind way of saying the movies I've worked on are garbage, but thank you. I appreciate it. Hot garbage. It's kind of like the secrets of Alvin.

That you were funny. Or do you even realize that now? No, I'm aware. I mean, it starts, it starts, it starts in a way that, I guess, you know, in ways obviously you don't think of your career. It starts in ways where you are like, I don't know, like sitting on the upper east side of New York City like in a coffee shop with your Friends and you're making ice cream come out of their nose, but regularly. Do you know what I mean?.

"Like I definitely was aware of it, but didn't know you could do anything with it, which was sort of half the battle, I guess. So yeah. Dave mandel a veep of curb your enthusiasm of Seinfeld. It's kind of incredible your hit list. What was your first foray in? And by the way, don't think I didn't hear the very subtle Ivy League. You went to Harvard. Yes, we get it. For those of us who can only dream. I knew we weren't going to avoid it because again, one of these things where it's like, how did you get your start? Well, I went to Harvard and I joined the Harvard lampoon, which is what no struggling comedy writer sitting in Nebraska wants to hear. But it is what I did. For me, it was so, again, you know, you're asking about the first professional stuff. And in some ways, while the lampoon was obviously collegiate, it in hindsight. And again, it wasn't thinking this when I was there, but in hindsight, when I look back, that was the first time I was in a real writers room, even though I didn't know I was in a writer's room. So I joined the lampoon, which the campus, humor magazine, and then all of a sudden you're in this place with, you know, a lot of sort of similar types of people that are all sort of pasty and sort of like somewhere on the spectrum when we all can't look each other in the eyes kind of and don't have the correct emotional responses, but all of a sudden you're kind of like, oh, this is my place. And what you sort of realize is, you know, like, you know, in the sort of like, I'm gonna try and make these people laugh. And again, now it's an extension of it, because that's all I mean, in some ways, that's for me all it's ever been, which is just sort of like a desire to make people that I respect laugh..

Donald Trump Remains Kingmaker in Ohio After J.D. Vance Victory
"I'm Doug Collins. I'm glad to be sitting in for Sebastian today. I'm on the Doug Collins podcast and only here part of the Salem faculty. I'm glad that the professor let me fill in for him today on America first. We got a lot to talk about. I'm excited about what's happening. I mean, if you just go through the last few hours, let's put it in perspective here. Mainstream media has been planning this picture over the last little bit of the Trump influence in the America first agenda going down in popularity. I'm in the mainstream media would do anything they could to basically say that Donald Trump is no longer a force in American politics. Well, folks, all you got to do is sample a look to what happened last night in Ohio. Let me give you a little bit of perspective here. This is a great moment. I know for the America first listener, you ought to be one of the best informed conservatives out there. We're going to give you that information. Just 6 to 7 weeks ago. JD Vance was in Ohio running in fourth place. He was running about 1617%. He had had some help. I know Don Junior had been in there a lot going on. But it was just a model race, if you were, there's a lot of candidates in it from different perspectives. And at the about two and a half I guess, three weeks ago now, Donald Trump decided that he was going to get into this race. He picked Vance, he endorsed JD Vance. And JD Vance went from fourth place at 17% to last night and finishing up at 33% man down Josh mandel, mandel, who had been running as well, got in 23%. Folks, I don't know what else you can say. Either either this is showing that Donald Trump still has a great deal of pool into this party and that he still has folks who are very much mourning in America first gender, especially with the just complete and utter downfall of Joe Biden and the mess that's being you can not deny that Donald Trump's influence there. In fact, he won all 22 races in which he endorsed last week.
J.D. Vance Wins Ohio Republican Primary
"Jenny Vance will be the next senator from Ohio nominated last night by the Republican Party winning 32% of the vote, Josh mandel 24% Matt Dolan 23% proving a number of things. Former president Trump's endorsement matters a lot, Peter Thiel's backing matters a lot, and that there is a not Trump rump within the Republican Party that is probably as equal as to the always Trump rump. That helped JD over the top. He was behind until the former president endorsed him. He won handily. He is going to win handily. I note that Matt Dolan quickly came out and endorsed him on Twitter very closely act by the state senator and Matt Dolan delivered the two largest counties. He won Franklin Franklin counties where Columbus is in cuyahoga counties where Cleveland is, he won those counties handily, and his throwing in with JD brings the party together. I'm sure Josh will follow suit. And Jenny Vance should beat my friend, but he's a Democrat, Tim Ryan and Tim has committed to abortion all the time. Regime and said so yesterday on the eve of the primary and that's not going to fly in Ohio, which is a pro life state. Sign the heartbeat bill. It's a red state at the Trump state and Tim Ryan's great candidate, but he isn't going to make that up in 2022.
Preliminary Results From the Ohio Primary Election
"12% of the voting in Ohio JD Vance 25.7% Matt Dolan he's sort of the bush rhino guy 23.2% so he's two and a half points back Number three Josh mandel 22% so he's 3.7 Points back It's pretty tight The worst outcome would be if this guy Matt Dolan wins And if he wins it's going to be because Vance and mandel split it And people need to think about these things People need to think about these things when they make endorsements and so forth In my view

Josh Mandel: Matt Dolan Is Mitt Romney 2.0, Vance Would Be Similar
"The polls seem to show a slight lead for Vance In other words it's so close that anybody can win You or him and then the media seemed to be pushing this guy Dolan What do you make of all this Yeah Dolan is he's a Romney He's the Romney two And obviously the media loves him And then Vance frankly would be very similar I mean I think he'd be like another Romney total establishment rhino I'm the only one in the race who would be going there to actually stand up to Republican Party bosses who are acting like Democrats and you and I have talked about this over the years This is not a shirts for skins game It's not just Republican versus Democrat What it is is it's fighting for freedom and liberty over big government and government control And I will go there to stand up for the constitution stand up for individual liberty stand up for personal freedom And if that means standing up against the Republican leaders I will do just that
Reading the Tea Leaves on the Ohio Senate Primary
"Josh votes are occurring tomorrow in Ohio and the Senate race. What is your crystal ball telling you about that race? Yeah, it's a very volatile primary. You've got JD Vance who won Donald Trump's endorsement. He got a clear bump from that endorsement, but not enough of a bump to guarantee him the nomination. The other Republican, I would Josh mandel the other big name Republican very in a very conservative right wing trumpy campaign. He's fading a little bit according to some of the polls I've heard, but still within striking distance. And I think the sleeper in the race is Matt Dolan, who's a owner of the Cleveland guardians and has a lot of money spending, I think the most money of any campaign on CV in the final week or two, he's the least trumpy of the Republican candidates but still pretty conservative. And he seems to have the most momentum in the final week largely because he's the only guy not running to the maga wing of the party. So I think this is going to be wide open. It's going to be a big surprise on election night on
Josh Mandel: We Have an Army of Constitutional Conservatives in Ohio
"Josh mandel it's a pleasure to have you with us How's it going there It's going well Mark We have this army of constitutional conservatives throughout the state that are fueling our campaign The political big brain say that whoever has the most money wins especially in a state like Ohio 7th largest state in the nation But we are defying political wisdom and we are winning this race because we have this army of constitutional conservatives and I think Mark that people in my state Ohio And frankly people throughout the country they're looking to send backbone steel spine constitutional conservative fighters to Washington People like Ted Cruz people like Mike Lee People like Cynthia lummis Jim Jordan and others And so when people look at my campaign they see that that is who I am I am a fighter And like you referenced I had no problem taking on John Kasich when he was acting like a Democrat in Columbus and I'll have no problem taking on Republicans who are acting like Democrats in Washington
Josh Mandel: I Am America First to the Hill
"And it's interesting to me that you're endorsements come from the most reliably constitutional conservatives in the Senate People you would be working with or even in the house Jim Jordan so forth And we all endorsed you long ago In other words it wasn't even a close call We all dorsed you long ago So I just want to make it abundantly clear Let's go through a few issues Josh mandel You hear about America first Did you fight for America Didn't you don't you today fight for the constitution and the declaration and secure borders and sound money In that sense don't you believe in America first two Of course you know I'm a Marine Corps vet went through parris island for boot camp did a couple of tours in Anbar province Iraq did my small part and when I took an oath to defend the constitution and the Marine Corps I took that oath very seriously And when I take an oath to defend the constitution and the U.S. Senate I will take it equally seriously And a lot of the Republicans they go to Washington to do good But I think they stay in Washington to do well Do well for themselves do well for their family members their lobbyists cronies whatever And when I go to Washington I'm not going there to play some shirts versus skins Republican versus Democrat game I'm going there to stand up for the constitution and the constitutional principles and rights articulated in that amazing document I'm going there to stand up for the individual liberty of us as individuals and the freedom of our families And as you just said Mark I am America first to the hilt You will not find anyone who's more America first than me And it's one of the reasons why we have this enormous outpouring of grassroots support throughout the

Josh Mandel: We Cannot Afford to Have More RINOs in Washington
"Why is this race important in Ohio and to the entire nation One of the most important things for the nation is ensuring that this next generation of Republicans who are elected are constitutional conservative fighters We can not afford to have more rhinos in Washington We can not afford to have more Mitt Romney's more Adam kinzinger more Liz Cheney's more Anthony Gonzales We just can't afford and we're at a crossroads or a fork on the roads I should say in the Republican Party And I think this election here in Ohio is ground zero for that fork in the road Down one path goes these big government I hate to even call them Republicans because I don't even know what they are like Romney and Cheney and kinzinger and Gonzalez and others And that's not the path we can be

Yeah, I check it out. I'm going to get out of, man. I'm so lonely to be circumcised again. You know? I can tell you what. I got a good recommendation for you. Wow. Yeah, I'm gonna tell you something. No, I agree with Jim, about legendary is that he gets on my nose, man. I mean, he used to be that wolf cow, and then he stole my rig fire. Well, first of all, Larry. Nobody stole your Ric Flair. That belongs to Ric Flair. Yeah, but I used it on this show. Then that means you stole it from Ric Flair. And let me say, let me tell you something. We know Rick flair here. He's probably watching right now, and he's coming after you. Shoot. More love me, man. He used to say Jack. All the time 'cause he heard me say it on your show. That Ric Flair sold something from you. Has Ric Flair ever stolen anything from anyone? Is it original? No, Jack, all the time. Is there a new takeout to the bank, right? Larry, where did Ric Flair steal this? So you're saying Rick heard it here and stole it from you? Yeah. He already was on this show. Many, many times. He knows me. Hey, Jack. Wow. He knows it. And I tell you what, Larry, if he knows you, I wouldn't mind him doing a pile driver on you right now. Jack. You had a guest on how smart or now you're going to be glad I'm out here. But yet you want to sell these little things at me. And I don't want to hurt my feelings, man. I can do it for you. That's not a slur. Yeah, whatever you slurp. A slur is what you do every day after 25 beers and try to communicate. And we're up against a break here. Thanks, Larry. You take care of yourself. 30 minutes remained right here on a Wednesday afternoon. You were listening to the Paul fine bomb Joe podcast. And we were back. We have 30 minutes remaining on our program. It's great to have all of you here. Mike is in Kentucky. You're on the air. Hello, Mike. Mike. Oh, Mike, lunch. Hey, this is me. Well, good. My son just my son just called me with a call. I told him I was on hold for you. Yes, Paul. I'm willing to step up and pay Larry's fine. I know he's got the money, but I don't think he's going to pay he had a principal. I don't either. Yeah, I'll tell you. You know, I didn't like you know from the start. And then I kind of like, well, whatever, I'll go along with it. You know, you ain't no stopping that it seems. And now I'm just plumbing disgusted with it, Paul. They have managed to make the national championship unattainable for 95% of the schools out there. Mike, it already was. It already was. Well, yeah, I know. College football? Yeah. It was the big 5. You know, they started a new conference and called the big 5, Oklahoma, Alabama, Clemson, Ohio State, that's about it. To me, from now on is just any time you win a title, it's going to be tarnished because people are going to say you both. Seriously. I understand your frustration, but do you think when the national championship game comes around next year or the Alabama Texas game or Georgia Florida or any other major game? This is going to matter. We're still going to watch the game. I'm going to, but it's just, it makes it a little less compelling for me. It's just aggravating Paul. It's like now I'm not for it. Well, tell me this. What is wrong with what is wrong? I'll just play devil's advocate for the sake of argument. What is wrong? What is wrong with the athletes making money? Answer that question for us. Well, there's nothing wrong with it, Paul, but the way they've gone about it has made it like the New York Stock Exchange. They've got about, but your budget people, the people that run college. Whoever's responsible for it. Let me tell you responsible for it. It's the very people that run the sports. They've known this was coming down the track for ten years. They didn't do anything about it. I get all that Paul. I just don't like it, dude. I'm a fan. I understand how you don't want to be about our boys. That don't blame the 17 year old who's making money for the first time in his life. Blame the and it's not like this has been a pure endeavor anyway. And you can argue all these different things, but once coaches started 20 years ago, Steve spurrier and Bobby bowden were the highest paid coaches in the country, making a $1 million a year. Now they're all making $10 million a year. So at some point, that was going to catch up. And it would be great to turn the clock back, but you can't. But what are we going to turn the clock back too? It's not like some of the stuff wasn't going on anyway. Let's continue with more phone calls here. Jim is in Mississippi. Hello, Jim. Hello, Paul. I think this ties into what you've been talking about today. I've got a selected I collected autographs when I was a kid and I've got one here out of the 19 52 Carnot magazine and it's a story about staying the man Musial. And this tells about him given a contract by the owner, fed side. Right. That was not did not fill in the amount of money that he was going to make. And he filled in the amount that he filled in the same amount that he made the year before, which was $80,000, and he was the highest paid baseball player in the major leagues. He's not only was a high paid baseball player, but he was a class, man, a class act. Sure was. Isn't that never going to be another stand to man? I don't think, in my opinion. No, I agree with you. When I was a kid, I had to stand the man bat. Oh yeah, and I had to stand a man baseball glad to help me get my flip. And my car. Well, glad my car got stolen. No, thank you for sharing that. That's a great story. I really do appreciate it. Mitch is up next in South Carolina. How am I Mitch? Now uncle Paul, I have been more than once. Criticized for my phone calls and then told that I am famously one of the worst callers. And who told you that? Who told you that? But I've heard the comments. Okay. But I don't care. My question is, okay, I want to understand, I mean, is one of your legendary colors. Correct. Has he always every call talked about Jim? Seems that way. And as he also, that's something more recent, Mitch, like only the last 5 or ten years he's been doing that. I mean, there was a time claimed his own team, but that is long past. Right. In the use of if you don't take his side in the situation, right. And I'm wondering, and then Jim, he won't show acknowledgment, if these are the superstars of the old days. Maybe they weren't so good old. Maybe they weren't. The good old days. That's a good old anymore. You know, I'm hoping that somebody will look back at this year and say, man, those were the good old days. Well, I mean, I'm enjoying that and to be honest, I'm enjoying Jim's calls lately. I can understand what he says. I mean, the one thing about Jim, he doesn't, I mean, he reacts. He doesn't waste our time going through something that happened a week ago or yesterday. Right. But it just seems like Jim Kate do anything and I may not comment on it. No, you are, that is what we call a sapient analysis there amidst..
"mandel" Discussed on The Paul Finebaum Show
"Hey, welcome back. Final hour has arrived been a busy show. We had Jay bilas on earlier talking about Sheila and NIL and Kansas Lee from Vanderbilt John Adams, many other guests, including Ross dellinger. We end with not totally in, but our final guess is Stuart mandel. Of the athletic who has been really at the Vanguard of the NIL conversation, his latest headlined a three star defensive tackle worth 500,000 of four star wide receiver a million the sticker shock of college football recruiting beyond 22 Stuart. Thank you. As always, for joining us. This is becoming the topic in college football. The NIL issue and take her through your most recent story and reporting. Yeah, you're right, Paul. I think it's the most the rise of these NIL collectives and the flood of money into recruiting to me is the most important development college football in a long time. It's completely transformed the way recruiting is working. What I was able to do was be able to look at a few of these contracts that are taking place in the that's what this is. This is taking what you always heard whispers about about boosters providing money and actually putting it in writing in a contract and all out in the open to get a sense of how much money are guys getting. What is kind of the market rate right now? We know about the player that got that crazy $8 million deal. That was an outlier. I don't think many are getting that. And you said the numbers yourself just now, I saw four star receiver who the collective for that school is going to pay him north of a $1 million over four years. I saw a top ten defensive lineman in the country. Who's getting a million over three years and then that three start defensive lineman, 500,000 over four years. And you need the way I'm phrasing it right now, right? It sounds like professional athletes contract. And that's what's just blowing people's minds right now. How quickly we went from NIL even becoming legal on July 1st of last year to these kind of contracts I'm talking about. And Stuart, let's get not to turn this into a contract law class, but what's in these contracts? And I won't even ask you, are they legal? Because that's not even a question that you can ask anymore without getting laughed off the stage. It really doesn't matter. But how are they structured? What's amazing to me, Paul is how few stipulations are in these contracts. They're pretty bare bones. There is always a cause of explicitly says all parties agree this is not a recruiting inducement to attend a specific school. There is no mention of any specific school in there. People have asked me what if the player transfers, as far as I can tell, there's nothing in writing that would allow the collective to pull the offer, pull the contract if the player transferred because again, this is not supposed to be an inducement to stay at that school. So all it really lays out is the money, the spelling out that the money is in exchange for the rights to your to the use of your NIL for appearances and so on and so forth. There's an integrity clause that if the player, for instance, were to get arrested or cause some sort of embarrassment that that would be cost or termination and that's about it. The assurance that the player is going to sign with the school that the collective wants to sign away must be taking place verbally because it's not in that contract. Sure, as you know, and everyone watching and listening those are contract is between an entity or a person or a group of people and an individual or more, so we know about the player who exactly is the entity here. It's these collectives that you're seeing sprout up all around the country that basically pool money donated money on probably mostly from boosters, but certainly a lot of them any fans can go on the website and click the donate bunny. Donate button, they pull that money and then they decide. And I'm focused on recruits, although they certainly deal with current players as well. Who gets how much I think that word collective has come to represent a lot of organizations that aren't necessarily all that similar. To examples, fire sports, the one that's associated with Tennessee has been very open and not even hiding from the fact that they are involved deeply in recruiting Tennessee football players. Ohio State one got announced there recently it's a nonprofit that is geared at pairing current Ohio State athletes with charities that they can do paid appearances for. If they're involved in recruiting, they're not advertising that. So you're going to hear that word a lot now and I will collective every school leader has one or they're going to get one, but they're not all necessarily doing exactly what the kind of deals that I wrote about in this article. Stuart overall, you know, we've heard about and you have written about some of the biggest deals, but how. Haven't have nots is almost a cliche here, but between the big the big schools, the ones that make up the power 5 and earth on top of the food chain and those who are trying to get there, versus just good programs, and then they also ran. I mean, how big a difference, what does the swath of space look like right now? Well, it's evolving and what's interesting to me to this point is that the collective, the schools of these clutches are associated with that have probably mobilized the most quickly and it raised the most money and are the most aggressive are schools like Tennessee, Texas a and M, Oregon. We're Phil knights involved. In other words, not Alabama, Georgia, Ohio State constantly. Because those are schools that do have big fan bases and rabid fans and frankly trying to catch up to Alabama, Georgia, those kind of programs. And so maybe you're more aggressive about trying to frankly buy a championship. You know, it doesn't mean that Alabama and Georgia won't start doing that soon. I have no idea. But they're programs that aren't really having trouble getting 5 star recruits in the first place. The ones I feel bad for are Colorado. Iowa state, Oregon state. Any of those kind of programs, you think of their power 5 programs, but they don't have a 100,000 people in the stadium. They don't have a Phil knight or somebody like that who's bankrolling the football team. And they're already, if they're not already, they will soon they're losing recruits to schools that can pay them..

"We'll update you on some of the basketball scores, but Tennessee just a obliterating longwood. As expected in the first round of the NCAA tournament, Stuart mandel, joining us from the athletic and just an absolutely fascinating story the other day. About millions and millions of dollars going to a high school about to be college players. Does that make sense? 5 star recruit. Signing a deal with a collective that could pay him more than $8 million Stuart great to have you on in fantastic story. People have been talking about this since the moment it hit the wires the other day. Thanks for being here. Give us the backstory for those who may not have had a chance to read it yet. Well, thanks, Paul. I caught wind late last week that, yes, it's a 5 star recruit in the 2023 class was about the sign a deal with a collective at a school that was going to in writing in the contract promise him more than $2 million a year. The chance to be more than $8 million over four years, just staggering amounts of money in a sport that until July 1st, you couldn't legally pay anybody a dime. So I got to read the contract in exchange for preserving the anonymity and it was just really fascinating because this is clearly an inducement to play at the school, which is absolutely not allowed. And yet the parties have crafted it in a way where the school has never mentioned, there is a clause in there that specifically says this is not an inducement to come play at a certain school. And as far as I can tell, there is no language in there. That assures that the player will sign with that school. So this entity, whose whole purpose is to support their favorite team, is promising more than $8 million to a high school junior with no written assurance if this player will actually sign with the school. Just unprecedented times that we're living in. Yeah, and the reaction has been predictable, but and I know you're under some limitations, but the speculation, of course, has been rampant. And assuming this goes, it all comes together here in the next year. I'm not sure you even had a phrase the next question in terms of changing things, but because it changes every day, does it not? Yes. Everything is so fluid, Paul. We're here in March Madness, and this is the 1st March Madness, right, where you're going to start to see some active players show up in the commercials. And I think that's what is cool about NIL and that's what everybody was hoping would come of NIL. And we all knew that boosters would find a way to use this in recruiting because they've been doing it under the table for the history of college football. But what caught me off guard and I think caught most people in the sport off guard was the very fast evolution of these collectives. These groups that are kind of like a political action committee, a fundraising committee where they pull all the donors together and they raise the money and then they can divvy that money up as they see fit to the players that they most want to take care of. And all under the legitimate, I'm using air quotes. You can't see it. Legitimate purpose of giving them are having them do NIL activities, having them do autograph signings. And appearances and social media endorsements and whatnot. And they're just there are certain schools. I mean, I'm seeing a new ones of these sprout up every week. And I think every school will have them at some point. Some of them just really got ahead of the curve and they figured it out real quickly. And they have a lot more money. And so I've heard people say, since my story came out, this is just the start that now there's going to be all these other players that get $8 million deals. I don't know that there's many that have that kind of money to give at this point. It just so happens that this one feels like they feel confident enough that they can promise that kind of money, but a lot of these, when you see such and such has launched an NIL collective, that NIL collective might not be much more than a web address at this point. In terms of how these work, Stewart, how are they put together and how are they kept aboveboard? David oven, my colleague had a really good look at the Tennessee one recently. That was probably the most detailed story I've seen so far about how one of them is working. They're kind of like they become like the de facto agents for the kids, basically. Our marketers, however you want to put it. In this deal that I read with the collective in that contract, they're promising all this money. But it comes at a cost. The kid has to sign over the exclusive rights to his NIL for the entirety of the term. So if Dr Pepper wants to do an ad with him, they can't come to the kit himself. Now they have to go to the collective. So suddenly the collective holds a lot of power over this kid. Not all of them are necessary structured that way, but that seems from what I'm understanding. I'm learning more about it every day. That's kind of the most popular model right now, is that it's almost like we consolidate we take all the players and pull all their NIL rights into one place and then we broker the deals for them. There are others that are more innocent, I guess you would say that they are nonprofits. The one David profile this is definitely a for profit LLC. There are other ones that are nonprofits that are trying to book charity appearances for the players, but they get paid for. It's all over the map. Some of them are doing group licensing deals so that the players can sell their jerseys, but the kind of collective that would be going after a high school junior and promising all kinds of money. I mean, that is very strictly we raise the money and then we own the rights to market your name image and likeness. Talking to Stewart mandel of the athletic Stuart, you mentioned a couple of things in your most recent column. One that I'm intrigued by because we've had this conversation a million times about the CFP committee and now this week the men's basketball committee is really taking it on the chin..

"I don't want to get into too much of that, but deep breath in. Going on in Jim's life right now anyway. So yeah, okay, I mean, she made a quarantine she said she feels are for them. And that's how you that's what I would say too is what I'd say to Jim is brother. They got medication for that. You don't have to keep suffering with whatever. All I ever hear of saying is nothing. They got nothing. Obviously, nothing. I'm compelling. He's nothing. Well, say something compelling Jim and we'll listen. I got one thing to say to that. Hey, I will call back now. I'm a call back next week and get back on a line for line with legend. I think I'm almost ready for that. Okay. Thanks, Brad. Good to hear from you. Red dog is up next. I mean, Alabama can not stop this illusion story. I mean, you had football game. You had the basketball game. Now you got miss K from Georgia with and Jim now. Jim, this is a respectable southern Christian woman. When she speaks, you need to listen. She's got words of wisdom. I mean, that's just disrespectful. You know, and I don't know. That being down was a little bit larger than 15 points. Yeah, it was. It was. And I know, I mean, you think about it. You got Jim tag team and the legend. And who else? They're just they're illusion. They're losers. But I want to propose something since east coast or whatever his name is. I want to be the full horseman and I want to be me squirrel. I'm in and augie. And we all root for different teams, but we can come for a greater calls that you can't talk to women like Jim did, and you can't talk to people like legend harness. You can root for your team like the guy who called in your Elmo. Elmo had it rod. This is about sports. People listen to this show to have fun. It's not to disrespect someone. And appear an older woman. She was speaking totally out of her heart so you gotta respect that. I have to take exception to something you said red dog. And I don't know what K's age is, but why do you naturally assume that Jim was speaking to an older woman there. Well, in this case sounds like someone would be like my mother, they'd be respectful? Not sound like she was in her late 70s, did she? No. No, I I'm not trying to disrespect her by right. I would never do that. I'm trying to make a distinction here, but I think it's worth my mouth. My point, but I think most people are. We are heading to a break. We have Stuart mandel joining us in a moment. We'll talk about the ways to save the CFP. You are listening to the poll find bombs Jo podcast. We're really looking forward to talking to Stuart mandel from the athletic and trying to figure out where we are. He's got a piece out. Maybe giving us some suggestions about change under the heading ten steps, see if the expansion must take, so the important games are not overshadowed by the NFL. Stuart great to have you on and I give you a lot of credit for trying to find a way for the CFP survival against the NFL, but every year it seems less likely based on the popularity and the positioning of the NFL good afternoon. How are you? I'm good, Paul, how are you? Not just the popularity of the NFL, but the change in the schedule, the NFL continues to take up more and more real estate throughout the month of January. And it's kind of gone under the radar, frankly, not really discussed much. But this plan for a 12 team playoff that they've been discussing now since last June, they would play the quarterfinals on New Year's Day, which sounds great. But then when I asked people, when would the semi final fee? Because the NFL has every weekend taken. They said, I would be in the middle of the week sometime. And I'm like, really? Your biggest events of the year and you're going to play them on Wednesday night. And then the championship game, which they always try playing on Monday night. This year, if I were this year, this great weekend of divisional playoffs this past weekend, all those great finishes, which just dominated the sports conversation. The game the college football game would have been the next night Alabama Georgia over the next night. And I don't know why more people in that room aren't concerned. I'm concerned that the college football championship would just become kind of a side event in the middle of the NFL playoffs. But Stuart, right now, it already is, is it not we were up there two weeks ago, and even though the schedule changed this year, when we were just having regular season, the final game of the season, it was still bigger news in many respects. There were two amazing play in game so to speak. It almost seems like I don't need to be in the fetus here, but there's almost nothing they can do. So what can they do in your estimation if anything? Yeah, you're right that Monday night championship game I thought maybe this year would be. Excuse me. My phone went out there for a second. I thought with the NFL pushing their season a week later that you wouldn't feel that quite as much because it's a regular season weekend. But it was definitely noticeable the day of the game. Everybody was talking about the coaches that had just been fired. And then the wildcard round. So and so to your point, I think a lot of the people in that room that commissioners have resigned themselves to there's nothing we can do, the NFL hogs the airways. What I would suggest and what I wrote about in there is shifting the whole thing earlier. For whatever reason, major college football college football is very resistant to playing their playoff in December, even though that's exactly what they do in the FCS and D two and D three. You always hear while they can't bother the athletes during finals week. But that's exactly what they did if you remember two seasons ago, the COVID season of 2020 when everything I pushed back, the SEC championship game was on December 19th. For whatever reason it was possible that year. But not possible going forward. So I would strongly encourage them to play as much of it as possible. You're not going to get all done in December. But I would play the first two rounds in December on Saturdays, which is when people expect cash flow to be played. And then not quarterfinals on New Year's Day semifinals. Because we've seen in the first 8 years of this, the years, and it's only once every three years, but the years that they do play the semis on January 1st. The TV numbers are so much higher than when this past season when it was on New Year's Eve or even some of the other dates they've messed around with. Stuart Mandela, some really interesting thoughts here about the CFP Stewart we're stuck right now, obviously. How concerned are you that it's too late that they've already seated all of this to the NFL? I think it just depends on whether they're willing to think outside the box.

I don't really have to pretend I'm like super young anymore because I don't really care if I ever get like a real job, but I keep getting a lot of work now because I was one of the original work at home people. And I want to tell you guys something. This is a tale for you. Because this is what young people won't do right now, right?

Cool, right? So you are. You are like the OG of what's going on. Well, the thing is, you got to watch a street Cred, right? So you still have to go to the big brand so I wrote pricewaterhouse Cooper's growing your business newsletter for 19 years. And those were three, three pages, articles, every other month. Interviewing folks about their businesses and what things they need to watch for and how to go public and all this great stuff. And then we originated next wave for them, which was for 7 years, which was all about, to this day, probably would have Cooper's has the money tree survey. You know that shows who's investing in what? And I got to interview all the hardest guys like Brad Phil. All the VCs admired back in the day. Oh, he's still around. And just all kinds of books.

"I it is a bit amazing to me that the conferences like the pac twelve. That are saying. Let's pump the brakes on. This are the ones that could would benefit the most from the playoff expanding. Sooner so i know they feel misled By greg sankey in particular. And i know there are business. Reasons like you said would want to open it up to the marketplace to to take that strategy But i i actually think they would be in the pac twelve in particular. I mean the stigma. That conference has a suffering from by now being five years into a drought. Making the playoff is much more damaging than and whatever amount of money left on the table. If they don't take that thing to the market. I mean maybe or clap this year. And then that'll be the end of that conversation but you go another three four and even five years without it. That's just that's gonna be very very hard to dig out of the read. As of now all i do think that the big ten pac twelve and acc really want to slow down. I don't think anything's gonna get approved at that meeting in late september and at that point you're starting to push a little too closely your to to actually get up and running in two years so if i were betting right now i think it does go to the end of the contract unless there's an urgency. That's xpress to these conferences. That you know you have to get it done sooner. Espn concurrently played by the way they can. They can name their price and it may be so great that they feel like we. We should just go ahead and take this. But you know. There's been a lot of change in the commissioner ranks right. We learned from john. So offered and jim delany for so long. Even larry scott was there for twelve years to jim phillips at the acc devon warned. The big ten george cleopa. The pac twelve just started a month ago. So it's a major major decision to have to make and these guys are new to the job that i don't think they're inclined to to rush it stewart.

"And we welcome all of you back here on a tuesday afternoon college football dynasties from alabama notre dame de. Usc proved parody. Sounds better in theory than practice. That comes from stewart. Mandel of course who runs a college football part of the athletic. Thank you great to have you with us so much to talk about. Let's talk about this article first before we get way way too deep in the weeds on the cfp and they're really curious and eager to hear about your Your theory here. Good afternoon. Catherine paul Yeah this week on the athletic for running. A whole series about we're calling college. Football's parody panic And it's no secret. Fans are tired of the alabama clemson ohio state oklahoma reign over college football and in particular alabama. And i get it. And that's part of the big reason why we're looking at twelve team playoffs so My point and one of my article was. I don't think it's realistic. That you ever gonna see a version of college football where there isn't a small handful programs that dominate. Because that's been the case in the entire history of the sport. There have been a couple one off seasons or you gotta georgia tag national championship or certainly. Everybody remembers the two thousand seven season. And all those upsets but going back to walter camp to new rock ni to wilkinson and so on There's always a small handful of schools. That are the dynasties of that era. And i think it's frankly healthy for college football to have dynasties because it gives the rest of the country of dylan if you will to root against in stewart that brings us to the biggest story of the summer at least so far. Let's the what we're we're we're learning about. Cfp and i someone who has been at the front row of this conversation from the beginning When when it first started to trickle out i'm curious what went through your mind especially considering what a long journey. This has been paulin. That press release came out in late april and they just flat out told us all voluntarily that they were looking at larger playoff models. Twelve sixteen team. It went so against the way these guys have operated for twenty years. I you know frankly. I was a prank cranking us and i'll be honest i've spent you know lord knows how much time how many column inches i've spent on playoff expansion over the years and never had i realistically considered twelve teams. I just always assumed it would be eight and if it was going to go bigger than it would be sixteen. I never thought about twelve now that we've had some time to digest it. I think it's a good bottle Just kind of something in it for everybody. Whether it's your alabama and you're playing for a first round bye or you're an iowa state or indiana or somebody who never sniffs the playoff now but might make it in top twelve Model so i think. There's a lot to like about it. But i can't emphasize enough. What a drastic departure. This whole approach is from How the bcs operated and how the first seven years of cfp operated. in now. by now stewart. I know you've spoken to many important people and influential people and we're trying to get a better understanding. I've heard some of the players talk about this. But i'm still struggling to to accurately gauge. Where how they got from point. A. to point b. and i'm curious what you think was was the tipping point. I think the tipping point. I think it started with the twenty eighteen season. That when you first heard some grumbling afterward from Jim delaney from bob bowls. I think you frankly. Ucf winning twenty five straight games and not being able to get higher than a in. The rankings was an eye opener for people. And i think that's when the ties started to turn and you didn't have the original as many of the original commissioners that designed the fourteen playoff defending the fourteen playoff. How he got from there to here. I truly believe is about the sec. And greg sankey who have the least to gain from an expanded playoff given. They're already dominating the fourteen event but is able to see the damage. It was doing to the rest of the sport to have entire parts of the country. Most of the west coast not included not having an investment in the season. So i he recognized that they needed to do something but he wasn't going to agree to something that didn't benefit the se obviously and in eighteen playoff. He's he said this as much in eighteen playoff where six of the births are locked up For automatic bid is not necessarily an improvement over the setup. The sec has now twelve teams. Were helping them are large birds. Yeah now you've got a chance to spend possibly three four. There was one year that would have been five. Sec teams it's a win for that league but it's also a win for the other leagues. Who can feel like you know we have unless are champion is kind of like a fluky seven and five type team. The power five champions get in pretty much every year. Talking to stewart mandel stewart. I asked bill hancock this question the other day i was spoken to other people in and i know they're pointing toward two years from now but we both know there. There are many complications. It seem to me you you hire a bunch of lawyers and they can work through these rather easily but What is your level of confidence that we get to this soon. As opposed to having to sit around and wait for this thing to finally unwind and four or five years everybody bill and others keep warning off. Keep trying to temper expectations that we may just stay. Put through twenty twenty six. It's really complicated. There's so many contracts involved. But i believe once they. They've gone so fred thank. You does not get on a call with the national media and a spouse the merits of a twelve team playoff. And then they're gonna turn around and a few months and say Five more years of the current system that that would be such a buzzkill for everybody now. They've put this out there And especially if they think it's doing damage to the sport. Which was the message. I got from that call. Why would you subject yourself for another five years of it. There is a lot to unwind But espn has a strong strong motivation to For them to do it earlier so that they would have the exclusive rights to Our exclusive opportunity to hold onto it. If it goes through the rest of the contract then they can. Then let's see if he can put it up to market and fox and bid on it and cbs and whoever else and you know no guarantee that espn keeps if they If they basically pay up and and make it worth their while then yeah. I think they're gonna find a way to to start it earlier. I also think that's why you see the bowl games still tied to this because they do have contracts those bowl games through twenty twenty six and i don't think it would be that easy to just say. Were kicking you guys out three years early. I think that's why they're That model has bowl games hosting both the quarterfinals in the semi-final stewart talking to stewart mandel from the athletic Here you know you.

Where we're this going Share with us. What you've learned and and and how much money are we talking about here. Billion ball billions per year I worked with A firm called navigate who is a consulting firm or so out of the conferences and they modeled this right now.
