"The paul finebaum show on. espn radio. Paul thanks for joining us if somebody was gone out of the country last week and had no idea what happened in college football. How would you sum up. What's happened in the last seven days simply put dan everyone else is everyone else was already playing for second Now it's just not even not even a close call it when this goes through and and i think we all assume it will the. Sec has put so much distance between themselves and the rest of college football. And i know in the past. A lot of people have accused me of beating my chest on necessarily wrote book six years ago entitled. My conference compete your conference. I got laughed at. I'm not getting left anymore. because it's you you just. It's hard to explain to those. Who don't swim in these rather toxic waters of college football the importance of adding texas and oklahoma to what's already alabama ann arbor to florida and georgia lsu. Texas ain't i mean it's an endless stream of big brands and i genuinely feel sorry for all the other leagues because when the big ten starts looking around the ferdie you because i i found out during covert you are the big ten. You're the voice of the big ten a you tell me who who kevin wards going after. Because i don't see too many attract choices. Well i wondered if the sec goes after the big ten heard that And i it. It seems unlikely today. because it's so hard to digest teams you right now the. Sec is about to move from fourteen to sixteen and if you want to see everyone within your five year period in college. That's very difficult. But but i. I'm really interested to see what a other schools want to do. I would think if you're sitting there up in ann arbor right now in. Jim harbaugh saying to his boss. We really can't compete in the big ten. I can't beat ohio state. So i tell you what. Why don't get me in the sec. Where i know we can't compete. Not only with one team but probably a few teams there. But i wonder about this. I can greg sankey the sec. Commissioner roger goodell because he's running college football but if you said let's look at sandy's endgame in i don't know if it's a three year five year period or are we looking at maybe an nfl model of college. Football and greg sankey is heading up the top thirty two to forty college football programs and you just use the model that the nfl has very possibly and you know in until whenever maybe before code we always look at mark emirate as the head of the the nc double a. I can assure you..

"I you know i i. I'm i'm working on a story Even before the statement yesterday They're working on a story of the last. Few weeks will drop monday about this exact subject. Like i said rumblings have been coming through a while now and this is something i've been working on it and that's a big part of the story as well. Why is the new bottle you remember. The fall of the knight commission came out with a proposal for two potential ncaa models new models. One of them is as you mentioned. They're like the fbi splits away from the ncaa so everything else stays or every other sport stays under nca control and me umbrella in the governance but after the s has its own governing bodies. That's one suggestion. Another suggestion is the power five takes all of its sports right in off Or or maybe the fbi takes all of its sports in splits off I don't know that it. I don't know that's going to be one of those two things. Certainly not immediately. This is probably going to be a slow phase And so the you mentioned in five years. I i mean maybe it's going to be one of those things in five years but for me. I think it's more of a slow progress there in at the beginning you just have the power. Given more authority to do some things It may be football in some way is split off into like Its own governing committees and boards. But i do think you're still going to have any. Ncaa umbrella because the you have to have somebody running championships. And i think the ncaa still gonna do that. You're just gonna have A little a little more authority to the conferences. You know at the start of this but it's a slow process to probably end. That might be splitting all the power five or splitting off. Mb s you know maybe in eight years or ten years it is fascinating In again it is so in the weeds for so many different people. But it's going to be at the core and the crux of what we do in in cover for our sports going forward. last-second Last question for you and asked the tony barnhart out of all the fourteen coaches. That'll be there Over on monday or out this week for sec media days you can give true serum to just one coach. Okay he can't dodge any question can give you cliche coachspeak. He has to answer every single question. One hundred percent truthful. Which one you give andrew sarah too. I'm trying to think of one Well i tell you what it would be. It would be fine some of them first of all you don't need to give them truths here That's true of them are pretty open books. They are but one of them that Even though you can be you know book But i would still like give them improved serum Because you might you might find out some really interesting things. It'd be lane kiffin He he probably has some of the most interesting stories related to time in alabama. Think that would be a good truth. Serum one and speaking of alabama giving truth serums and nick sabin Would would certainly be Entertaining probably i I again. I don't know if the book over be written in The the full autobiography that nickel have or. I can't imagine anybody's ghostwriter for him. That would be an absolute must. We're looking forward to it on monday. Always great stuff We appreciate the time. Rv'er notice rostelecom. Joining peter burns here on the paul finebaum. Show just kind of intriguing right. I mean the basically mark emirate and nc double a. Is saying i listen. It's gone to this point. The supreme court slapped us around enough to where we can't get involved and if we do guess what basically the court has shown its hands saying that if we even interfere it all any longer with putting guardrails at any of this. They'll come out and we you know more and more people will sue us and then if it goes up to the court. Guess what the court's going to rule not for us and so therefore nc. Double as like. I just i can't. I can't deal with it now again. It does make sense for other sports non revenue sports. Everybody thinks the big bad boogeyman. That does the wrong thing. I would tell you this. It's like everything in society. Ninety five percent of the people of the incident are great people right. the problem is the a. has grown into such a behemoth. It's impossible to have the same rules for bryce young quarterback at alabama than it is. Peter burns the collegiate golfer university of texas san antonio k. Those are two completely different worlds for different reasons. But it's just grown and when there wasn't revenue attach and not just kind of thousands hundreds of thousands or millions but almost billions of dollars attached. When there was a really money involved in all of it was easy. Hey here are the rules here. The sports this is what's fair. we're gonna set up the championships go but as money got a big part of it. It became more complex. And now the unfortunate part for the delays at pigs get fat and hogs get slaughtered and they've moved from the part of being the pig to a bit of the hawk and now they've got to figure out what that future is for that organization. More your phone calls coming up. Eight five five two four two. Paul is the phone number. That's eight five. Five to four to seventy to eighty five. And here's here's your prompt. Right finebaum callers if i can give true serum to one of the coaches next week right i just kind of drop it in their drink right before they get to the podium. Who do you want really telling the truth about their team next.

"Twitter at peter burns. Espn been talking about some of the different story lines. That are coming out. I see bruce and john in new orleans. Get your phone calls here in a bit. But i did see the sweet earlier. That kind of caught me off guard in the middle of the show. This is from. Dan woken over usa today. And he says quote just got off a call with mark imran had a small group of reporters are what they smog. Reporters he wants a thorough rethinking of the nc double a. Structure and governance with more power handed down to conferences on the heels of the allston ruling. In i l. etc more details to come so let's go to the store stand. You're on that phone. Call what to walk me through how this happened in in your take away from it. Well i really think if you just take a step back this is mostly about the pressure. The nc double a.'s. Under right now Especially from an antitrust perspective. If you look at the supreme court ruling in the allston case it really does lead the nc double a. exposed to more lawsuits and the antidote boys on pretty shaky ground right now from from an antitrust standpoint and so where i think this is going kind of reading between the lines is way in the future is going to be an organization that puts on championship events. And they're going to manage the playing rules and kind of the basic stuff but most of the rest of the governance of the sports is going to be handed off. And i think a lot of that's going to be done Either at the conference level. Or you know. I think he even talked about sport by sport. You could have a system where you know. Football is run under one federation basketball's run under one federation You know and then tennis is under. Its own federation so that everyone deals with their own set of issues and i just think that's probably the most appropriate way to build college sports at this point because of the amount of money you've got in the high profile sports and the fact that you got college athletes now able to make money off their name image and likeness so many of these decisions and issues. The ncaa just doesn't really need to be involved in. Tried to manage every little piece of this. I mean this is an organization that used to worry about cream cheese on bagels right. And now you're talking about college. Athletes going and making deals to endorse products or businesses. Or whatever they just can't be in the role of managing all that it's it's impossible so I think this is going to be a sort of a move for the nc double a. Toward a hands off approach on on a lot of things. And it's gonna take time like this is not something you snap your fingers and do but this was amer today kind of laying the groundwork publicly say this is what we need to move toward. So i'm fascinated. Dan vulcan usa today on on a phone call with mark emirate discussing name image likeness and all this stuff in dan. If i if. I'm hearing this correctly. I mean in essence. I envisioned them almost being like. Hey we we're a party planner like we throw championship parade or events and we all have that infrastructure we'll do it but when it comes to enforcing the rules and we're not touching any longer so my my first thought is. Let's take the university of tennessee right. I mean we just saw that with allegations going on with that organization josh hypo. I'm sure we'll be asked about that coming up media days which by the way he was not the head coach for jeremy pruitt was and they have a new ad what happens. We think with infraction cases in enforcement. That's know kind of end the pipeline so to speak right well ultimately that would be up to the college presidents to decide. Hey listen these are the sets of issues that we think are important enough that the national office needs to deal with but most of this stuff. This petty stuff Should be dealt with at a much lower level and you know what the conferences decide what they want to do if they if they want suspend certain coaches or whatever let the conferences do that You know obviously there maybe issues. That are big enough an important enough for the nc double a. to to get involved but we're that line is drawing. That's literally what this discussion is going to be about. And this isn't something that's going to happen in six months. This is gonna take some time. I i would imagine for the ncaa to figure out what its role is going to be going forward But that's where these college presidents are going to have to get in there and say we just want to wash their hands of this and kick it down to you. Greg sankey and jim phillips and kevin worn so i i think that's It's an it's an interesting admission that the nc double a. can no longer handle all of this and We'll see what comes with that being said in if this does go sport by sport obviously college football being what everybody is thinking about right now with the the season right here a or so away that would be arguably the first one to split off or i mean if you did do it. Sport by sport which i think is is needed. What do you think that looks like. Is it somebody like a gregg sankey coming in and going all right. Here's this new quote unquote college football federation. Whatever you're going to call it the cf in it. Would you know basically govern all of it from that point in some ways. You already have this. We have the college football playoff which is not part of the nc double a. It's it the college. Football playoff is the organization that controls most of the revenue for college sports. And it's concentrated in the hands of a hundred and thirty schools who are part of the the the fps part of their organization. And so i think part of what we have to wrap our minds around is. It doesn't make sense to take those hundred and thirty schools and have them in the same type of rules environment as you know division two division three schools. That don't really there. They don't really care about football midway. There's not really part of that conversation At the same time. Like if you if you look at and say we're going to have a separate organization for you know whatever gymnastics or soccer..

"1300. I wanted to get a sharper mind than mine to discuss the whole name, image and likeness stuff that is now okay? Starting today, and they don't get much sharper than Jeremy M. Evans, Esquire. He is a founder at California sports lawyer and he has found a great avenue for his knowledge on these kind of subjects as the host of believe in sports law. On the believe podcast network. Jeremy Appreciate you joining me. The proverbial floodgates are open. Have we seen a flood of college athletes cashing in today? Well, hey, thanks, Ryan. Appreciated being with you and great being on the show with. Yeah. So, Yeah, We're definitely seeing a flood of opportunity, and I think there was one athlete who signed the initial deal. For $20,000 with a moving company. And we're just seeing things kind of grow from there. I think some of the larger deal is going to take some time to develop. But there was even the athlete. I think, the star quarterback at Wisconsin who created logo So this is just the beginning. And as some of these other states get their laws in place, or get their universities in place, and in terms of their programming, this is, uh, going to open up some serious opportunities for Athletes in all sports and men and women, just depending really on how many followers they have, Because in my mind, that's the real catalyst to N I l It's It's their ability to reach an audience directly and not have to go through a broadcaster. You mention that the bigger deals with bigger companies are going to take a little while and that makes a lot of sense. But do you think once we get Into the middle of this, and it becomes kind of more normalized, and we're a few weeks, maybe a month or two into this thing. Do you think that will have more smaller deals like the moving company? Or do you think that will have more? Uh, you know, big deals like with cell phone companies and things like that. You know, that's a good question. I think it's definitely going to be state by state because You know, the interesting situation here is that we don't need state law to tell athletes that they can make money. State. Basic California was the catalyst and getting this going because the answer to the lay wasn't moving on it. And so California passed its fair pay to play act. And then the anti responded and admittedly, Mark Emirates said that it was California's law that really got this conversation started. An existing state law already protects name, image and likeness, and people are allowed to profit off of that. The problem was that police said, you know, you basically can't do this and so I think once answered, really opened up those doors and you know, and obviously state law was kind of opening this up in universities were saying yes. I think that in states that went live with this on July 1st and they had laws in place and universities were already on board. We're probably going to see more opportunity there. But California's law did not go into effect. I think until 2023 And so I think state by state, we might see some bigger deals. But what we also have to keep in mind is that a lot of these schools are signing with companies like open doors. And, uh, Altea sports partners in terms of so they can manage this. N I l sort of structure. So I think that once those things are in play, people have been educated. I think we'll start seeing bigger deals. But the last point I'll make to that. Ryan is this idea that like in California, for example, There's going to be limitations because In my mind. It was the most open market legislation that was put out there, and it basically said You can find whatever deal you want. You just can't conflict with the underlying university. So if the school is signed with Adidas They would be able to actually wouldn't be able to sign a deal with Nike, for example. But if you compare that to let's say Georgia, they're going to pool 74.9% of the money that come in from the athletes give it to the other athletes that are in the programs they're not making. The money. There's also limitations on you can't sponsor anything from the sin industries like gambling and alcohol and cannabis and that sort of thing. And of course, you can't take the money. The money goes in an escrow account until one year after graduation or one year after you leave school. So there's going to be some limitations on this state by state Conference by conference school by school, my guess would be California will probably be one of the last ones to pursue this. Especially since the schools and the Pac 12 seem to be a little more conservative in their approach with this Um, but I could definitely see schools in the Midwest and the South and in the East, maybe having particularly in Florida, having a bigger effect in some of these bigger deals happening. Jeremy Evans. My guess he's the host of believe in sports on the bleed podcast network Talking about N I l I want to go back to the to touch on the Georgia thing because one of my questions was Is this only going to or the vast majority of this is going to benefit only men's basketball in football, or will there be? And and does that matter if it only On Mostly benefits those two sports, but the Georgia thing you just mentioned what is that about pulling the the money to give to other athletes? Right. So basically what's going to happen in Georgia's that let's say the top athletes, so I entered that in two parts so The athletes that are in Georgia. Going to Georgia schools will be able to profit from their name, image and likeness while they're attending.

"My first semester in college. I wanted to go home every day. And if I'd been a recruited basketball player, as opposed to a swimmer, I probably and rules existed. As they do now. I probably would have said my parents. I want to transfer to blank. And it would have been one of the worst mistakes in my life. You've got to stick it out. But now because kids know that they can transfer right away and be eligible right away. They get yelled at in practice. They get benched for doing something wrong doing something stupid on the court. Whatever I mean, is that as an example he gets on his players all the time. And and you transfer and you leave. Tom is always one of the best coaches of our generation. And you go somewhere else. It may work against you so, but the transport what the rule does is it's hard now for the fan to keep track of who's on his team. Because you've got players transferring out. And you've got players transferring in all the time. There have been coaches who have said Why would I recruit high school seniors when I can go and easily recruit because there's so many kids in the transfer portal? Two or three guys who have a couple of years of college experience already, by the way, I don't know the exact numbers, but there are a lot of kids who put themselves in the transfer portal this spring who still don't have a scholarship to go somewhere else. So again, That's that's that's a risk they're taking. Um, I was talking, uh to Dan Engelhardt, Who's the coach at Mount ST Mary's? Last week I was at Jim Fallon's funeral. And he was talking about his starting point guard. Thought he could play at a higher level who is a good player in the N E. C and put himself in the transfer portal. The only offer he got was from Type II. Which is probably a step down or no better than at best equal to the NBC and he wanted to come back. By then. Dan had recruited a kid to take his spot. So he could. He couldn't take him back, and I'm sure that's happening all over the country. So that's that's a That's a a huge change, and we're going to have to wait and see how it plays out. The N I. Els are going to have less significance than people think You're 100% right there long overdue. Long overdue. I mentioned the other day that when I was at Indiana doing season on the brink in 1985 Steve Alford posed for a charity calendar that a sorority put out to try to raise money to send underprivileged kids to summer camp. You got no money for it. He just did it because you know as a charity, and somebody asked him and so we did it. The suspended him for a game in Kentucky. Because he posed for that calendar. And that's how strict the rules have been through all these years, and it's really worth noting that the double eggs went down to the they're going to stand up now Mark Emirates can say Oh, yeah, this is great. You can have their entrails. They went down, kicking and screaming on this. Yes, they did. As we knew they would. I mean, there was never a doubt they went to the Supreme Court. To try to prevent kids from being able to be given computers or internships, post grad internships, whatever. They took that to the Supreme Court and that court, which is probably as conservative as any court we've ever had. Voted nine nothing against them. That's worse than the Mets losing 22 2 last night. Yeah, that that was well, look, their policy has been and I worry that pro sports in general and the had the same policy. Feeling like we're sheep. They have stuck their tongue out. I mean, they have dared people and that's what the term I've been using over the last five or 10 years. These leagues are daring you to leave. They don't think you will. You're addicted your sheep. They don't think you are a paper tiger. You're not going anywhere. Sure, you'll call sports talk and complain. You'll, you know, write a letter or or tweet out your disgust and your anger, But you come back. You come back and you watch and until you don't or until the TV revenue goes down, No one's going to believe you. So you're the boy who cried Wolf as a fan, and they're treated that way. And I thought the Ah You know until that O'Bannon until some real pressure started to come in and and the tide Fine. Look, John, I thought this would happen 20 years ago. I don't know about you, but it's amazing that they have been able to put their middle finger out at the rest of the world this long. Yeah, And a lot of it is because They're able to convince a lot of the media and a lot of fans that the and we're talking football and men's basketball here. Those are the revenue generating sports. Those are the work the athletes who have a chance to become Pros and make a lot of money. Um, but they That's why all these presidents eighties, even coaches used the term student athlete over and over and over again. To begin with. It's a redundancy by rule. You have to be registered as a student to compete as a college athlete. Okay, so it's we're done, but it's more than that. It's this hypocritical. Notion that we can fool people into believing that these guys are just as interested in their biology classes. They are in playing basketball Now. Look, I don't have any problem. With a kid focusing on basketball or football, because we all go to college to figure out what we're going to do in life. And if you're good enough to play basketball at the pro level or football at the pro level, why not?.

"To mike on friday about him. Saying you know ninety percent of his friends would not take the vaccine and you know you wonder you and i can remember back to where they lined us up shirt. And they shot us polio. Of course you know. I'm thinking our parents didn't even know they were doing nothing. That does what i do realize now that we have i think the sand is part of Yeah well let me let me restate my my answer here. One of the saddest parts of cloven has been the political ization or the politicisation of it. And and and we can't get away from a now and it's too late You know. I was watching a political rally. The other night and people in the audience were were demanding. That she she'd be locked up. Well he's you know. I think. I think that's probably it's probably too late for that But yeah that's that's where we are right now. Which covert well. Yeah because i mean the coach when they started to ask him question actually said. I can't answer because if you want to make this political yeah. It was very inarticulate answer. Well yeah but we still don't know what happened. What exactly. yeah. I mean that's You know. I blame a couple of people. I blame the coach. I blame his boss. The athletic director for not just going ballistic. And i know that sounds over the top but fans want to know that someone is looking out for them. And and i really think Instead of giving inarticulate answers about the politics of covid. He should've just throw a fit and gotten it out of the way and screamed and hollered And then it would be over with. But at least his fan base would have felt like they were represented. They were being represented. Instead i think wolf the wolf pack nation just felt like nobody was standing up for them and somebody should demand an answer i read. I read the former governor of north carolina. He called for mark amer to be fired. I mean the problem with calling for mark emirate to be fired as you gotta get online now. I mean in the in the lines around the block. Let's continue with more more calls and david is up next to hello david. Go right ahead. How you doing this afternoon. I'm doing great. Thank you i would. I would like to take you away from baseball for just a moment and kind of take you back down Few years ago when you were in birmingham Did you ever envision the success if your program would have david know. The one thing about this industry internally. There isn't a lot of joy from the people that you work for and in i'm talking about going back. There's always something going on there. There's always a the changes in the industry so you we really have a hard time looking at what you're doing and thinking this great Even though you know there's an audience there. So i i was the move from birmingham to the sec network was a difficult move and i know people say come on. Don't don't give me that line so you know everyone always says it's the hardest decision my life. The reason why it was. Because i wasn't convinced it would be successful I had my doubts that where i was going. Which is where i am now. You know the people here would understand. What i knew was working back in birmingham and and that was my biggest concern that we would get to a big network and they would go They were trying to change the show. They were trying to dictate how is operated and the magic of what we had for so many years back there would be lost somehow david. I guess he clearly wasn't buying my my explanation. Either that or satisfied with it. Let's continue with more conversations. Here and kerry is up next in north carolina kerry there this is marsha pits more I'm nc state grad. And after all of this. I'm just nam as a lot of other. People are and the biggest issue that i've got with this. Whole situation is the lack transparency. As you already alluded to but the biggest thing is is i today have read an article that was on pack insider and it reiterated that sunday afternoon kindle rogers at division one baseball. It's an article about this whole situation and it was trying to figure out what you know the whole town line. One and bottom line is is that two players who were unvaccinated. Were not test positive for covid because they'd been tested every other day as per. Ncwa rules then two more. Were not feeling well so they were also tested and what became weird then was on friday. It said And i'm looking at this while i'm sitting here. No i read that article and it's the best article i've seen yet. And it said that the players were then sent over to the marriott for further testing. Those results arrived ninety ninety minutes before the game started and they had only the four positive tests but for some reason the nc double a. decided to test everybody and when they decided to test everybody they truck them over to get further tests even the they did players and out of all of the out of all the tests. That were run. You had the four initial positive and then you had four vaccinated players who were also positive. The total of eight and even a player family said the state players had been tested six times and they were all negative except for these eight players so the thirteen took the field on friday but the other negative players were allowed to come back to the ballpark to play. That is the part that is just totally and completely unfair marsha. I'm glad you mentioned that. Because i did read that in a i think it's shameful. I really do. i don't understand it. I mean while the writer was kendall. Did a really nice job of pointing all the time. Line agai- you. Stop me your bag. Have you seen any explanation yet. From the nc. Double about why. They did what they did. No i have not. And i know some people are really upset with vanderbilt coach. And there's rumors propping around here where i live. Is you know. Care the outside raleigh. So i'm nine minutes from campus. Sure there's been. Let me ask you this marcia. What what is what is the what are what are people objecting to in relation to tim. Corbin the vanderbilt coach because they the the accusation has been made is that the ncwa may hand pamela of the positive covid tests with the state players and he said will if my players have been around them already. I want the whole came tested and that is wear no one has owned up to why the nc double a. decided to test everybody and and the everybody includes not on the players they they tested the countries and the pfaff that were they. They tested offering parts. There needs to be And again this is too late for their needs to be a legitimate investigation into this and right now we've seen one reporter put a time together and it's been a very revealing timeline but marcia thank you for the call and I understand i mean. That's i mean you're in the in in the in the in the scene at the scene out there in the In the triangle. And they're everyone. I'll be upset if it doesn't matter. I mean you know vanderbilt wins. Losers indifferent there needs to be transparency. That's all there is to it and and and the ncw wants to be transparent when it's to their advantage but but this is the biggest event of the year for them in baseball. Speak up. don't spin it. Just just spit it out. Let's take more of your phone calls right after this. You're listening to paul. Finebaum show podcast. We are back and just look down and check the calendar..

That's that's your That's Who was you, your your NBA team of the year. And I will walk that back a little bit. Because if the Phoenix Suns win Which I do believe that they are going to win this series now because I think they're going to get Chris Paul back and the Clippers are not going to get quiet. If the the Suns win, we should respect what they have accomplished this year. Undoubtedly, Jason, I agree with that in time, they had the second best record in all of basketball in the regular season, and then if you look at what they did in the playoffs in the first round Maybe LeBron James Anthony Davis, the defending champion Lakers In the second round, They swept the Nuggets. Nicola Yokich. The M V P. They swept the MVP out. This series in hand comes down. You know if they beat them beat the clips without Kawai. Um, but you know Paul George is legitimate player. And then if they beat Janice in the finals, I mean, that's a two time m v p as well. That is a murderer's row. It is it is, it sort of made me think you know the the box. Your boy Tom Brady in the Bucks when they beat Drew Brees, Aaron Rodgers, Patrick Mahomes in succession to win that Super Bowl. You're like, Wow. Well, here we are, and I think people You know, are saying it's kinda like Is this all there is because there's no LeBron There's no K D and there's no Steph in the playoffs. None of those big three are in the playoffs that we've been. We've been Embracing for years and years and years, right, so it's going to betray and Chris and the Greek freak and playoff P There is sort of like a list Hollywood. These guys are B list Hollywood. Well, they should should we? I mean, there was a time when those names that you mentioned they were the B list, Guys. All right, Are we Are you kidding me? LeBron was a B list. LeBron lady was a B list. That's what the hell is. There was a time where Steph Curry was a B list. I didn't know him. He was from Davidson. And that's what maybe but Devin Booker. In five years from now we'll look back. And we'll be like Oh, uh, that that guy is the best player in the world. Try young. Maybe we'll look back and be like that. That guy is the dude. So, Yeah, Maybe we're old fogeys and that we're just upset that there's no LeBron Katie. I think that's it because because LeBron And K D and Steph brought non NBA watchers into watching the NBA Finals period. I believe I believe, and yeah, if if the Sun's you know if they if they pull this thing off Which I would probably make them the favorite. I don't know what it is that I would make them the favorites over the bucks. Yeah, I think that's a very interesting series. But, yeah, I mean to run through that gauntlet in the playoffs, I think would be very impressive. 51283605 90 in North Austin. It's C J on K. L B. J. What's up? C J.

"State taxes my To schools those states might have a recruit niche right. If i'm not if i'm not mistaken student fouls their state taxes in this in the state of resident meaning unless they have declared themselves resident of that state they they their taxes back into state they come from. Yeah yeah you may be right about that. I will tell you and we'll we'll shut this argument down. The state income tax is not going to influence. Someone's decision on where to go to school. They're not making enough money to matter. I agree because you got to make over twelve thousand dollars before you even fouls state taxes. I don't see many players making twelve thousand. Yeah you know mitch. The first two or three years of my career made so little money. I i didn't. I didn't file it and i had to fire. I realized after the fact and they allowed me to. They allowed me to they allowed. I really thought i was going to jail. We're not certainly discovered like two or two years into my career in alabama that i hadn't filed state income tax and talk to a lawyer. He's a you don't make enough money that they don't they they would never come after you. But here's what our do. And he helped me find. Somebody enough filed an addendum. And i think the state laughed at me. We're not filed it because it anyway. I just i don't anyway and i have one more question i know you're gonna laugh at it but what does the ansi that way do with all the money they make Mitch good question The answerable a basically uses that money to pay for mark emirates. Private plane his his Luxury presidential suites at the ritz carlton and It helped build a taj mahal building in indianapolis a couple years ago. I hate to run. We're up against a break. I went to long with a couple of interviews. Here we are coming back with much much more listening to the paul finebaum show podcast and we are back at. John is up next good afternoon. John thanks all how you doing. We're doing well. Thanks a lot for the call good. I'm just curious. I know where everything has. The beginning was the name image and likeness the genesis of that when the northwestern football players. I can't member who they sued. Whether we're hughniverse was at the beginning of that well. It certainly played a raw. I mean i think really this all began with the with the ed o'bannon case and when he took that to court the former. Ucla player. but but you're right. I think that was about seven or eight years ago. That was a very important moment. And i think i if this if this case continues down the road the austin case gets regenerated with another case. You could see the unionisation now now. The reason why i believe is craig northwestern was able to attempt to do. This was because it was a private institution. Okay so don't say and but the northwestern so they win didn't it. I believe they did but in the. I'm i'm vaguely remember. I mean i do remember the case. I remember patrick. Gerald was supporting the players in kind of a cryptic way. But it was a big deal. It it definitely. It garnered a lot of attention. I remember that other. I've just. I've just curious. I didn't know. I know where everything begins somewhere so i just kind of figure out where there's no i think you're right about that and and but i think you have to go back. I mean this has been going on a long time But i think you'd have to say it was the ed o'bannon case When when he sued them over his ability to profit. I mean it was it was a direct link and the nc double a. has been right for this for a long time and they just simply hunger hat on on on on on language. That really had nothing to do with the issue at hand and think that was why justice. Kavanagh's line yesterday is going to be repeated. That's the one thing we're going to remember from from the case is not even the merits of the case. Which really not that important. It was the line that he uttered the. Ncw is not above the law that that was a shattering blow to this organization coming back a lot more to do in the next two hours. We'll talk to a young man. You may have heard about from california. He has jake olsen and we will talk to him shortly. Thank.

"After midnight. From NPR in W B U R I'm Tanya Mosley. I'm Peter rode out. This is here and now at the United States Supreme Court today of victory for college athletes who had sued the N C. Double A in a long standing quest to get compensated for their talents. The court ruled at the N C. Double a cannot ban some modest payments to student athletes. But the unanimous decision was narrow and it did not decide the broader question of pain athletes salary, It could still have a major impact on the multi billion dollar business of college sports. So let's bring in NPR justice correspondent Carrie Johnson. She is on Skype. Carrie, welcome. Happy to be here. And the court ruled that some payments to student athletes should be allowed. What kind of compensation are we talking about here? This is a narrow slice of non cash payments items related to education, things like laptops and other computers, musical instruments, post graduate internships and also things like vocational school scholarships after some of these student athletes graduate from college or university Justice Neil Gorsuch wrote the unanimous opinion. What's the court's reasoning? Justice, Gorsuch pointed out. This case sits at the intersection of the complex relationship between colleges, sports and money. College sports, of course, is a massive business $1.1 billion for television broadcast rights to March madness the basketball tournament every year, and the court has been wary of blurring the line between college sports and professional sports. But Justice Gorsuch pointed out the N C. Double A is not immune from antitrust laws. And he said it seems to have violated the Sherman Antitrust Act when it tried to limit these kinds of educational related compensation payments to student athletes. Well, the N C double here will obviously disagree. Just remind us what their arguments were against allowing these kinds of payments. The was very protective of its definition of what it called amateur sports and wanted to protect the market. The unique market for college athletics and not have it turn into her morph into the same thing as professional sports of the N C. Double a also argue that there were other ways. To achieve these kinds of goals without allowing these educational payments. But in the end, as you pointed out, the Supreme Court unanimously disagreed there well, Gorsuch acknowledged potential criticism over this ruling because it is limited. Advocates are already saying, though, that it could have a pretty big impact on college sports. What are you hearing about? What those broader implications could be, even though this is a narrow ruling. Well, you know, one justice would have gone even further. Brett Kavanaugh wrote a concurring opinion to say the NCB delay is not above the law and basically that any other industry would not be able to get away with this kind of anti competitive behavior. Former athletes are saying this court decision today is a good thing. But it of course, does not bear on this ongoing debate over the use of athlete names and images and likenesses. That idea is under consideration by Congress and about a dozen state legislatures have already acted on that issue of trying to achieve some compensation for players whose images are used for promotional reasons. But those payments, of course, wouldn't come for column from colleges and universities. They've come from, Um athletic companies and others course. And what kind and what kind of reaction are you hearing to today's decision from different points of view. You know, the A is just out with a statement. It points out that the Supreme Court allows the governing body to adopt reasonable rules and that the N C double can decide what are and are not truly educational benefits, which was the heart of this case. Um and, uh, President Mark Emmert also says that they're going to be working with Congress to chart a path forward, which is a point, The Supreme Court expressly stated in its ruling, especially on this issue of name, image and likeness. Use for student athletes, of course. These athletes, their wages are depressed at a time when justice Gorsuch pointed out that Mark Emirate earns something like $4 million a year to run in C double A and on many college coaches at the football and basketball level can easily earn over $1 million a year in salaries. But the student athletes, of course. Don't earn anything like that. They have very modest, modest scholarships and some bonuses. On top of that. Carrie Johnson. What does it say to you that this ruling from the Supreme Court, As we've said, was unanimous. Every justice got behind the decision, whether they're conservative or liberal. This is a really hard lane line drawing exercise for the court. A number of the justices are huge sports fans, Justice Kagan, Brett Kavanaugh and others. And they did not want to blow up what college sports has meant to so many people and what has become What it has come to mean and in symbolize at the same time, there is some kind of fundamental unfairness to student athletes not profiting off of their labor, which earns many many other people. Uh, millions and billions of dollars annually, and the justices drew a line rather narrowly. Here, we're going to have to see whether other challenges legal challenges sketch of the high court and whether there is comfortable and unanimous and drawing those kinds of lines moving forward. NPR's Carrie Johnson, Thank you so much my pleasure. Over the last five months. Hundreds of people have faced charges in the January 6th insurrection. And last week, the Justice Department released at the request of media outlets like NPR, several video showing a chaotic scene of people assaulting police officers and other mayhem on that day, these newly released videos are now part of the evidence prosecutors will use in court. And for the latest on those cases we have with us, Philip Bump a correspondent with the Washington Post..

"Excited right out to get to talk to you this afternoon but growing up georgia there at at and so i understand how People feel about by griffith anyway just sort of throw back in for the nc double president. Because i'm living in a fantasy world. Now they get. The ncw was not getting sued for kids selling their autographs and signing jerseys or even taken away the scholarship from the kid and ucf for whenever youtube channel. Agai sue for video game right exactly and so at that point. It was not about patrols. All about grease. And i was looking at the number slash here. The video game industry made over a hundred eighty billion dollars. And you tell me to see double. I couldn't figure out how. And i'm gonna go hob so you can figure out how to get at least say seven to ten percent of that michael michael. The nc double a. You know collectively the administration and the hierarchy is seriously challenged. I've tried. I'm trying not to talk about it anymore. Because it's it's so easy it's the it's the prototypical low hanging fruit that anyone can can can take a shot at now. Try not to be part of that crowd but they the mistakes that they continue to make It's criminal yeah and it and it's one of the things for anybody that understands and not to get all political or whatever but capitalism can't exist without socialism and vice versa so it a dollar is socially this magic. How communities can't be helped absolutely by video games. Well when you when you when you when you do with the president the ncaa did many years ago and you draw a line in the sand and you say you know we will never allow players to profit paid in any way shape or form over my dead body. You make difficult to down at the table and try to negotiate and find some common ground. I'm not giving a lesson. Here on negotiating but rushing has to be a give and take Both parties have to get something out of it and in the as in the world to mark emirate. It was my way or the highway. And that's why the double a is is a is a shell of itself right now and ultimately will be out of business hopes. I should because i mean this the number i mean and i just said i did a lot of those pretty good at math. I find not a graduate with a smart degree. But i was pretty good at. Math and numbers are ready. They can attach a certain amount to the already. One hundred eighty thousand scholarships they give e- even help division three who don't have scholarship athletes micro. What's what they ended up with ended up agreeing to here in a couple of weeks You know they could have done years ago without all this pain and suffering and supreme court case that may destroy their part of their mere existence.

"Seems like mark. Emery is always in the news. We talked to pete thamel about him. A couple of days ago and since then pitas written Even more talking about whether the winds of change are not already in the thanks for the time. Let's let's talk about your latest on. When i was i was dumbfounded when i read your column because i swear. I rent a comment the other day. Some poo bear in the ncwa hierarchy. That said he was doing a good job and they were happy with him. Well hey it was interesting. Paul like he. There's a little bit like i know. I caught in the stock market. When when when the stocks keep going up they call it the goldilocks effect in in college. Athletics when someone who is perhaps not performing their job at a high level but still gets to keep their job is a similar thing. We're just all the all the factors surrounding them are in place so they can keep on going even if the results aren't there and we we saw you know most recently with larry scott out in the pac twelve where it was fairly unanimous Feeling amongst athletic director certainly in a lot of people out there that maybe it was time for larry to move on and he had a couple of key presidents especially the gentleman at arizona state and they make a crow who were were on his. We're on his side and he kept the job probably three or four years longer than maybe even more than that than than most people in that area would Would have thought he was going to in so the Mark emirate is that he is pretty much lost his constituency on the ground meaning he has lost the commissioners for shore at multiple commissioners going to estimate that least eighty five percent of them would like to see a change in the president's spot athletic directors. A little harder to judge. 'cause you're you're going from university of maine to miami and alabama you know eastern washington. There's three hundred and something in division one and there's d tuned. three as well But it's probably a fair estimate to say eighty five percent there want change as well. I mean let's put it this way for all the stuff that's come out about mark emmer. His anybody stepped up to defend him. I don. I don't think there's i have not heard or seen a you know a single person other than his bosses.

"The guy pitching and pitching relief last night the Braves Tyler Matt sick he had the yips is a pitcher right? He was out of baseball, former number one pick out of baseball. It took him a year going to see a psychologist. Psychiatrists throwing every day on his own, and it took another year in the minor leagues, independent ball to get back. I think more guys just don't get back. It's really hard to get back from it. It seems to affect second baseman as you mentioned there. And the occasional picture, But it's an odd throw from second base. It's like anod throw. When a comebacker goes to the mound. The pitcher is he's guiding it shortstop in third. You have to unleash it. You know, it's rare when you get you know, a looper that you can throw in their second was always odd. And I was a former shortstop. So you get it. You fire second. Sometimes you fire sometimes you lob it and it feels like sometimes you're right in between. Well, I think you're on something there. When you have a little bit of extra time that clock tells you have a little bit of time. That's when the brain starts to get in the way of the muscles. Right. If you're short stoppin the whole third base long throw you have time to think about it. Second baseman knows he has time and I think that's that works against them. If I would have told you when the Marlins had their outbreak, that they were going to make the playoffs, But would you have said No way. I mean, really. I mean, don Mattingly did an incredible job with that team. I mean, you think about that 18 people out. I think it was 174 roster moves. They went through that 20 guys make their major league debuts in a 60 game season. I mean, it was crazy, but, you know, listen, that young group found itself Mattingly to the great job there. Young pitching is legit. I didn't think it would come this quickly. But again, then you made that point about nobody in the stands. I think that helped them. It was sort of a bonding experience to to go through what they did, but bottom line was, I think Mattingly has to be the manager of the year for the job that he did with that group. Have fun tonight. They're nine Eastern on a fox sports one and, Ah, it'll be Raves and Dodgers again. Do you think we're gonna live to see another game? I do. I can't count out the Dodgers. You know what? I think it's a low scoring game tonight again, though, because that braised bullpen it's a bullpen game. Brian Sneakers got a lot of good options. So you know most cases, most teams were up against it with both thinkin, not the British Thank you, Tom. I know you're busy. We appreciate you making some time for us. Yeah, Have a good one. That's Tom Verducci, Sports Illustrated senior writer working for Fox Sports and MLB. I'm coming up tonight at nine Eastern My raise against the Astros. That's the early game. It's around five. 5 20 Eastern McLovin Scent sound about right? I I think it's six and 90. It's six o'clock 6797 of the exact times Eastern. The first pitch is okay. You want to change the poll question. Are you okay? I think I want to ask a mixtape in question. Okay? Paulie had an option. Okay. Would you bet a week's pay whether next segment's going to be in the building or not in the building? Well, I'd like to know if he if he tests negative today. Any test negative tomorrow. Is that enough to allow him in the building? Hopefully, he'll find a way to test negative that gets in. It'll find a tester down there. He's got a red. Do it again. Get into somebody else in here. Ah, Can you get somebody else in here? I think I'm needed. Walt. I know. Does your positive? No. I think you're gonna look at it again. Yeah, 11 another poll question. And I think you have to say this before. Well, Nick Saban's absence be the reason Alabama loss. Like Is that what everyone is going to stay on Sunday morning? If Alabama loses well, next baby wasn't well, I think it will be unfair. But you know, when is that stood in the way of Ah, good headline here. With the media. Would be unfair to Georgia. But, yeah, I do think that that'll factor. I think because you have to factor in Saban and what he means to that team. And he is the preeminent college coach, maybe in history or certainly on the short list there. You know, it's it's hard to replace that you can't replace that. And I think that there's moments where you know David Pollack of ESPN was telling us about that that in the moment Nick is going to make changes there. And there are very few coaches. In any sport that make those changes in the moment and he does that It's on him to be able to do that. I would love for him to at least have contact with the sideline. I think that that would be That would be fair. But you know, I I don't know if the is going to have any leeway and they shouldn't just because it's Nick Saban. But during these times You know these air these air rules that are implemented when we don't have a pandemic, we have a pandemic. I know how concerned are they about cheating or bending the rules here? And that's where I think that's what coach saving is saying is like, Hey, this is different During these times. It's different. And, you know, I don't know if he's got an audience is going to listen to him or not. But I think he's going to do his best to force Horse's weight. Like Who do you call? You call Mark Emirate. Do you have the Commissioner Gregg? Thank you, the SEC petition on your behalf. Tohave him be able to coach like I don't even know who you talked to. You got 20 hours to get this done. Anton, we have reached out. Just, you know, to the Commissioner Gregg. Thank you and to the see if they have any information that can share about what he is and isn't allowed to do this weekend. Yeah, and Greg is really good with us. He was always available during the off season. I just be curious is, Can you lobby on behalf of Nick Saban to be able to coach in this game or if he reaches out to you? What is your role as the commissioner? Is then you have to go to the A. And I don't want preferential treatment for Nick Saban. But I want it. I want fair treatment for him because of what's going on right now. These are unprecedented times for players and coaches. And I think that's all that saving is saying, If I may symptomatic cannot be put in a sweet Can I be by myself? Could I still have contact with sidelines and Steve Sarkisian's? We'll take a break your phone calls for next year on the Dan Patrick Show..

"Because I've had a chance to get to know these men, and they have the same values that I have for you. That's right. And so that was me as a recruit, and now I'm looking at Jim Harbaugh in the midst of a pandemic. And I don't know how things are done elsewhere. I do know coaches. I talked to them, but in regards to what Jim Harbaugh did he on a weekly and sometimes daily basis. Would have, you know, everybody talks about the zoom calls and all the stuff he would have those calls with as many parents as could be available. At that moment, it's big and he would continue the conversation with them. Wanting to know what their concerns were wanting to hear from them. What do you What protocol in place Because amongst those, you know, parent groups, you know, you've got Chris Hutchinson, who was a teammate of Jim's. He's also captain former Captain. Mission All American, but he is now an E R. Doc here. Beaumont Hospital in Detroit. That's right, So you've got people that are qualified. To give you advice, not just as a player, not just as a, you know, a Zey dad but also as a doctor, and so he engaged the parents as much as he possibly could. Because even though these kids are adults, and they can make decisions for themselves They will always be their kids. They will always be their Children, and they want to be informed and they want to feel like they have a say in what is going on. I thought Jim did a great job of doing that. But it's not those programs that you're worried about. It's it's the athletic director at Nebraska, saying he wants a full stadium. It's the Colorado State football program saying, Don't tell us if you have symptoms, cough in your arm. And don't tell. Don't tell anyone you've got. We're going to keep that quiet and not reported. Those are the things that bother. And that upset, you know, then should upset parents whose kids play You're 100% correct and it comes down to protocol. It comes down to end the disk. It's back to the initial question that you asked me across college football, and due to whether it's just the fact that there was nobody That even had the power to do this. Of instituting protocol that you would have to follow. So that whether you were in an arbor you were in Bloomington, Indiana. You're in Tuscaloosa. You're out in L, a right Europe in Boston. It doesn't matter that we know that everybody is following the same protocol, and it needs to be 1/3 party that does absolutely buddy. The coach could say. Amen. Let's lose that sample right And that's where it's absolutely or you need the leadership and you need that position. Of power to say this is how it needs to be done, and this is how we're going to do it everywhere. Let me ask you a question, John about some of the players who you know if we don't have a season. This was going to be their final season. Are we talking about a possibility of guys, perhaps transferring toe leagues that are going to play like, Take a look at it. And this is a crazy scenario and thought, but a guy like Justin Fields. If he's not playing at Ohio State this year, the year that he could have perhaps won a Heisman Trophy. Who's to say he doesn't go down to El issue and played quarterback for L s u or something like that? I mean, have we opened up? Perhaps a can of worms that may not be able to put back in right now, because some leagues air playing in some aren't There's no question and you know that could happen. There are some eligibility rules that would have to be worked through and in the waiver process, all that stuff and it brings us back to players right? Should they be able to transfer and be immediately eligible, You know one time, maybe twice during their career, or is there an exception because of the pandemic? But you also go further down the road. And you think about recruiting? Yeah, while the Big 10 did this and the Pac 12 did this in 2020 the SEC played a CC played. The Big 12 played. There becomes a disparity that may already be there in a lot of minds across the US off where the talent is going now, you increase that by the fact that there is no uniformity in college football unless some kids get sick, and then that works to the other people's benefit where they're saying we protected you where they didn't care. They cared about money they didn't care about. You know, I'm saying no one is hoping for. I hope everyone's safe. I hope everyone's safe. I hope that we don't have to have that conversation. And if the worst is we're trying to argue about recruiting in five years and trying to come back from You know, the SEC played in the Big 10? Didn't I'm okay with that conversation, but it also comes down to an assumption of risk. There is an assumption of risk when I walk out my front door. And for the better part of two decades, there was an assumption of risk. When I walked in the locker room, put on my pads and walked on the field. You have a choice as to whether you want to take that risk or not, you throw in a pandemic and you throw in a corona virus and the risk goes up. We're starting to learn Maura about it. But we don't really know enough or we don't know as much as some would like. Then it still should, In my opinion, come down to the individual and we have heard from Commissioner's We heard from Mark Emirate we heard from athletic directors, coaches. Hey, if you if you're not comfortable, you can opt out and we saw you know about 40 guys do that out of 12,000 kids, right? Big names big you would have to be able to make that decision for yourself. Right. So let me ask cause we did talk about And you very clearly mentioned the top that there's a possibility that it happens. The season happens in the winter or the spring, depending upon where you are, and I know there's a lot of talk about Wait. We don't want to eat into the next college football season. We don't want to eat into that the year the where it starts in the timetable. Why is that such a pristine thing? Why? You know we're in crazy times right now. I mean, we should be able to bend and manage. That isn't some football better than no football. Well, yes And no. And right now we're kind of in limbo for a lot of the same reason we talked about what happens if you know the SEC does go ahead and play in the fall. And yet the Big 10 is going to try and play in the spring. Those athletes and then throw into that the NFL. Every kid wants that opera. I wouldn't say every kid a majority of the kids. Be professional athletes. What do they do with the combine? What did they do with the draft? If the SEC plays their full schedule or part of it, and those kids are able to prepare for the combine when it happens yet you can't In the big 10. You can't in the Pac 12. That completely changes the conversation and then to make it even worse. What happens with eligibility and then if we don't play in the in the spring or the winner? What happens with eligibility at that point? There's just so many complications of trying to make that happen..
NCAA Won't Mandate Uniform Return to Sports, Mark Emmert Says
"Really looking forward to chatting with heather vintage from ESPN. Who broke the story last night? In relation to our interview with Mark Emirates the president most people saw the headlines throughout the evening and early day the NCW. A uniform return And now we can get an inside that conversation and find out what it all means Heather thank you for being with us. It's great to connect with you again. Hope you're well. I'll tell you man I don't know that heather and I usually convene in at ESPN on Sunday morning. About six fifteen in the morning. We're we're both the bleary eyed for various reasons but we get through it and Heather I feel the same way. Let's let's let's talk about your conversation with President Amran. Everyone thinks they know what it means. But you talk to Him. Tell us about it. Well I think one of the big questions I have had about all of this is what is the double role and some coaches have been outspoken. And saying we need somebody to issue a sort of blanket set of instructions to help us out on this and so I asked him point blank with the NCAA issue a start date and he said not in this case usually we would. That's what we do but The Corona virus pandemic has thrown this off the track and so he is saying from the highest level and college sports. What I have heard from every single commissioner that I have talked to which is it is not up to us and they stressed this in a phone call to Vice President Mike Pence a couple of weeks ago and I think it's very important to reiterate. Just how different college? Sports are from Pro Sports. They can't just you know. Pull up in a parking lot and get a test in minutes and go into a stadium. That's unlock they. Must WAIT UNTIL UNIVERSITY. Presidents reopened campuses So as much as a lot of people have heard like the NCWA to do something to help not even commissioners the most powerful people in sports the power five commissioners can do this uniformly as much as they would like to. They are cognizant of the fact. This is changing state by state. So what role does Emmerick ploy moving forward? So part of it he said is helping regulate the what is it ninety conference championships that they do oversee And Remember the NC Double A. Was the one that had the authority and the power to cancel the NCAA basketball tournaments which they run and all the other winter sports and the spring sports calling a halt to those conference championship games but his thing was basically saying we are here to help them in terms of fast tracking legislation. Let's say they only go to eight conference games Or How do you do? We need to reconfigure how you determine a conference champion and a certain league or play number of games Bob Ob the big twelve. Commissioner told me to football oversight committee will have something to do with a lot of those questions and and rules and regulations but at the NC double a level he said he and his staff are preparing just like the commissioners are for whatever permutation you might be able to think about what seasons might look like in order to respond quickly and say okay. You only have eight of ten teams and you're GonNa play championship. Here's here's we're going to rewrite this here you go. He said something Friday that was that I thought was interesting where where he alluded to it. In loot he was pretty matter of fact about the students on campus. Before you can play and that's been the debate You you talk to more people than anyone help us understand where we're the commissioners are right now and why did Mark emerets say that well choosers. Depends on who you talk. Too Much Commissioner Craig. Thompson was very blunt about it when I spoke to him and basically said I don't see how you can have athletes back. You don't have students back Jon Steinbrecher of the Mack told me the exact same thing Bob. Dole's be told me last week he said well. Here's the thing if everyone is going to online classes the first step is you have to have your athletes register online because again. They are student athletes if they're not registered for those online classes. That's the first step. You can't get back on campus. You're you can't be a student athlete. So there are also conversations going on about what it could look like on some campuses that have some students returned to campus. We're just freshman or however you might want to Put that piece of the puzzle together but there are certainly varying pain herm Edwards at. Asu told me if it's not safer. Sousa comeback from my players and coaches. I WANNA have everybody tested

"We talked to him a week ago on this program will some of you outside of. That Rouge or college station may be asking why Scott Woodward will Scott grew up in Baton Rouge went to LSU has worked at LSU. He worked under Mark emirate and went with Marc Emmers to Washington, Mark. And of course, now, the president of the NC double A Stephanie. Realized so much of this is unknown at this point. But this board of supervisors would it have been there. Call to make or would it or was it king Alexander the president who subsequently made the call. How do you think it went down? Paul Klee, the board of supervisors can't spire Jila Lifa. So technically, it wouldn't be there. Call to make by the letter of the law, but whether they pressured king Alexander to make that decision whether there were higher up political forces involved, which some have have said like in, you know, if the state highest levels of state government, technically, no, the board did not force him out. But did the board apply pressure and did others in state government apply pressure? I think it got the point where the writing was on the wall and everybody could see it. If that makes sense from the mean, we're talking about Baton Rouge here. Nothing makes sense. But you, but you've done a great job of trying to make sense out of it all, and that's why we were so eager to have you almost Stephanie. Thank you, a quite a scoop by you and your publication, and we always enjoyed chatting hope you'll come back. Thank you so much have a good afternoon. To listening to the Paul finebaum show podcast Seth Walder from ESPN and try to figure out what's happening here scout Seth always great to have you. We haven't talked to you in a couple of weeks, and it is always cool to touch base. So who has the best chance to reach the college football playoff. I'm going to hold my breath as we wait to listen to you because I know you're going to give us four teams. We haven't thought of right? Well, I can't surprise you too much Paul. I mean who else would it be but Clemson and Alabama at the top. But I do think it is actually notable. When you look at those two teams because we have Clemson at Eighty-three percent chance to make the playoff which is for an objective model like this outrageously high. I mean, I think when we look at this. I'm not sure if we are sitting here talking over the next ten years in the preseason, we're going to have a team as high in the preseason to make the playoffs. We do. Clemson right now. It's just set up to perfectly. We've got. To defending national champion who everyone agrees. I think that is going to be great again is bringing back their most important player in Trevor Lawrence and the schedule is so soft. We are talking about one of the easiest schedules. Among power five teams. They they're to touchdown favorites over every single opponent that they have on their schedule. Their toughest game is at South Carolina. Their last game of the regular season for context. Alabama also plays at South Carolina. It's their fifth. Toughest game the history, Alabama not far behind, but we're so used to hearing the same things you just got through saying about Alabama. Yeah. There's no question there a major title contender. Seventy one percent. We have for them to the the real difference. Here comes down to the competition. The SEC we've talked about before Paul how favorably FBI views the SEC. And so you're talking about a number of challengers. I think there's a good chance that the SEC is able to put. Teams back in the playoff. We actually put that better than a fifty fifty proposition. And so that's good for Alabama. But the reality is they're going to have to play LSU granted Tuscaloosa, but that's still a challenge game. No matter what you're going to have a challenging game in the SEC championship game. So there are opportunities for Alabama to lose even as an elite team as it is still very likely that the tighter end up in in the final four..

"All I've been told fishery is that it's very, you know, well known much loved high, you know, highly respected figure in the college athletic world. The Dallas Morning News is reported. Alrighty, that you know, Scott Woodward is is the man that many beliefs that will be, but he has not told his people at Texas ain't him yet. And no-one at LSU has said that get just routes for people understand Scott Woodward, who by all accounts is one of the best athletic directors in the country. We just talked to him a week ago on this program will some of you outside of that Rouge or college station, maybe asking why Scott Woodward will Scott grew up in Baton Rouge. Went to LSU has worked at LSU. He worked here under Mark emirate and went with Mark Emmers to Washington, Mark. And of course, now, the president of the NC double A, Stephanie, I realized so much of this is unknown at this point. But this board of supervisors would it have been there. Call to make or would it or was it king Alexander the president who subsequently made the call. How do you think it went down? Well, mccreavy the board of supervisors can't fire killer leaper, so technically it wouldn't be there. Call to make by the letter of the law, but whether they pressured king Alexander to make that decision whether there were higher up political forces involved, which some have have said like in, you know, at the state highest levels of state government, technically, no, the board did not force him out.

Thank you, a quite a scoop by you and your publication, and we always enjoyed chatting hope you'll come back. Thank you so much have a good afternoon, Stephania RIA. We've talked to over her in the past. And again today, she broke the story of a couple of hours ago that Joe alita is out nothing official yet from Baton Rouge. But then again, you probably wouldn't expect that. It is it is going to be a long day. And I'll tell you I rarely about seeing a report of someone's demise cheered on more than this one. I think we for those of you have watched the show in the past. Joe liba was not a very popular man in Baton Rouge. In fact, the Stanley Jacobs who was a former LSU board member gave a quote to Glenn Guilbeault disaster. Noon saying I tried to take him out years ago. But I swung and missed. And now it looks like the board in administration have finally got it. If the story is true, I tried fervently to take him out. Well, I joked with a friend of mine today that of of the greatest days in history would this one rank anywhere near Billy cannons. Punt return, and the LSU graduate said, yes, it would rank pretty high up there. Just to show you the unpopularity of Joel Eva. And certainly all of us all of those all of us who have been countered him throughout the years. Wish him. Well, we'll take a break. Eight five five two four to seven to eight five. We have a lot more to do on the show before we head to the break. We'll get to your calls a lot of guests. But this has been the big story in Tim Brando, who chip us off last night at nine thirty saying he heard a lever was on the verge of getting fired. But we didn't have a show. There wasn't much. We could do with it. Tim will join us in a little while as well. We have a lot to do on this Wednesday afternoon..

"He takes a flame thrower to college basketball. And he's a college guy. He says the end of one in done, we'll be the final straw, unless the NCWA addresses and outdated amateurism model it goes on to say, this is a fatalist column that predicts. No one will be watching and no one will care in the future because the metaphorical zion's will be tucked at the end of NBA ventures. This is simply pointing out that NCAA officials should see this Buslim title game. As a warning this transcends style and focus focuses more on the overall quality. And there wasn't a lot of inspiring basketball in Texas, Texas victory over Michigan state Virginia's victory over Auburn. This weekend is a glimpse of what the final four will look like in the future to Pete famil-. A lack of household names in both Brandon stars with a distinct lack of familiarity that we've become accustomed to at this event with the NBA expecting to formally end the age limits that have essentially force kids to college for a year since two thousand five there will be a high end talent drain in sports starting around twenty twenty two and that means after more than a decade of being treated to stars like Anthony Davis and Derrick rose and Greg Oden and the final four. We're looking at more hunters in culverts great players, but not paradigm changers. He goes on to say that they need to give players option to profit off their image in like, let their likeness. NCAA officials have been doing snow angels in their billions for too long and not come up with a better plan to divide the pie. As Mark Emirates. Last public salary of two point four million Amran heads up the NCAA appear to misers how tone death the organization is to why people are paying attention. A couple things with this would be writing this. If we did have Michigan state in there, and maybe had another blue blood in there. If North Carolina and Duke or plan any problem with college basketball. Probably not. Yes. Well, that is interesting because that is sort of his point is that you need like marquee names or brands in there. So it's not just I am. But if there's a Duke or coach K, or you know, all of those things seem to work a little better. But I think if you had the schools in there. Virginia and Texas Tech. You don't think of college basketball greatness? But if you have these other schools, Kansas is in there, then you assume if it's Bill self in Kansas Syracuse, Duke, North Carolina. Michigan state Villanova Kentucky. They're still quite a few schools that when they get there there's excitement it's that you have Virginia that they're not quite sure what kind of school. They are in sports, and then you have Texas Tech, and it feels like football school or wanting to be a football school, mclovin. Microphone still doesn't work. Just fritzy's. Okay. Yeah. I think the thing is Michigan state doesn't have that star power. But their thing is I think peach arguing that one in Duns are not going to carry the dukes in North Carolina's to that level tend to lose tournament. You can't win with one can you? Well, you had Carmelo who won. But they can get you a pretty far Kentucky's one with one and done, you know, they had the one title. It's really hard to do that. But I'm not looking at who's going to win. I just look at who's going to be what is college basketball this year Zion? And that's it has there been anything else. And the answer is probably no you can turn off their microphones in the back there. But you have Zion Williamson who just dominated the sport. And I'm glad we got seen for one year. But I do think down the road, you will get to know players. Whereas before you didn't he would be oh gosh. That's an interesting player or he's back next year. And it's because you're probably going to have to go two years or maybe three years God forbid, you gotta go four years, but you may just stay and play basketball and get an education. Yeah. Pete them. We'll his solution was that the players control their naming rights or they're like, this is this could be the way for the NCAA to get players paid without paying players. If you know what I mean, where the money doesn't come from the school, nor the NCAA nor the television networks. Imagine if Zion Williamson with allowed to sign with an agent and allowed to sign with the shoe company whenever he wanted, and you know, he's talked to wear whatever shoes do castes, but he could sign with an agent shoe company. So this he has money in the Bank, and he plays along long as college basketball. He wants but Duke never has to pay a penny. NC never pays a penny and RJ Barrett. Maybe he doesn't get as big of a shoe deal. But someone gives me an agent gets him. So there's a dozen dudes who get those deals and they avoid paying the rest of the dudes. Yes, right. I mean, we just had somebody unless week was a Jay Bilas who said basically, the answer to this problem is is the free market zion's worth what he's worth. And you know, the water polo guys worth what he's worth, you know, and that you just sort of do it that way. Not everybody has to make the same amount of money. But even then you have to have a tiered system for basketball stars. Because as we pointed out before Sam darnold at USC was worth a whole lot more than Josh Allen wasn't Wyoming and they're both first round draft picks. I just don't know how you carve this up, and then you have zion's mom who's being paid. She was hired by Nike and we've seen where a star player his coach in highschool. Maybe even his dad gets hired on the coaching staff. This happened with Alan Houston with his data, Tennessee. There are ways to get around. It the NC double A just can't get its head around it. Bruce, Pearl joins us continental tire coaches corner. Continental tire proud to be the tire the Dan Patrick show. No matter where you drive what you drive continental has a tire for you. The Auburn head coach, Bruce Pearl. How are you today? I'm good. I'm good. I'm tired, which we're still playing. In minneapolis. But we're blessed. How are you? I'm good. I I had no problem with the call on guy. It was the double dribble that everybody missed. I'm curious in the moment. Did you see that? Because I didn't see anybody arguing or being upset with the double dribble on Jerome. Yeah. I didn't see it either. You know, Bryce Brown was pressuring and contain the ball. And we knew we wanted to try to get a foul because we had to give and gosh when I saw the disruption in the play. I assumed that Bryce must've deflected. But obviously on just lost it picked it up dribble it again. And at that point. I was just glad they hadn't got shut off. I was glad we can execute the foul, and we were in a one point five seconds closer to advancing. Classy of you after the game. You didn't rip the officials, but how tough was it? Fortunately, there was a long walk from the court. And. Your first reaction is, you know, obviously, what my first reaction was like, you gotta be blanking kidding me. And but I think at some point pretty quickly I recognized that I had a responsibility as a leader as a coach as a as a teacher bother to do the right thing in that situation. And and make sure my players understood it once right promise, you're doing what I'm doing right now is I'm thinking about I did out have a great alternative game plan. I didn't do a very good job of taking advantage of their high ball screen hedges. There were some things that I could have done better that that are haunting me a little bit. The last couple of nights of sleepless nights. Trust me, not the last call you worry about what you can control your do your don't worry about what you can't control. And I can't. Yeah. I was speaking of control. What play did you think? Auburn was going to run on the play that guy got Urginia when he got found. Oh my gosh. Dan, I took an easel the board. And I drew a line from the inbound acid to that corner that quarter, and it wasn't just one line back and forth back and forth back and forth. Tackling this is where the ball's going. So I took Austin Wiley who is my biggest player with our longest Winston. And I put him on the ball but angle to that corner. But because of the way the is built and there's much of a room on the sidelines. The passer was ever stepped back further and actually have a passing lane. Corner kind of very much like at Vanderbilt, and I actually got beat about the very same way. And so the way the car was built maybe advantage to throw the ball. They're now they did a good job of faking. Lob and slipping the sugar to the corner and my my call for my defense. What's the switch everything out, whichever? We we did not we stayed attached. And as a result of staying attached. We challenge late. Yeah. I was wondering guy hit the big three pointer from the other corner. And I didn't know if you were going to try to take him. I know they have other weapons, but I didn't know if you were just going to say guys not going to be the guy who beats us, no pun intended. Right. Well, what they did on that play and the other two plays. They're very similar they screened in with to fix. So in other words in that Backstrom. If you're switching it's gonna take one of your enforce that big to go out on a challenge. And and instead we stay connected, which is what we've been doing and Samir dowdy is our best on ball defender challenging shot. It's got great length and he's slippery. He's hard to screen. But but listen, and you're making these questions are making a great point Virginia did make those to place. We look we made a fourteen zero run the last five four minutes of that game to cater to point lead. But we also didn't do we missed a free throw. They made a three. We found a free we made three mistakes they made free place. And that's how the that's why they're still there. And you gotta you gotta take your hat off to them that doesn't take much away from Auburn historic run to the final four a road traveled. That was a challenging any. Ever to get to the final four and put our basketball program. Enter university in. Dan Patrick show on Monday morning of the final four. Okay. You're talking about a rising. Please. You're going to watch the game tonight. I think so. Well, wait, what's that mean either? Or you're not if it's on and you walk by you'll go, oh, what's on. I might not watch it because it's because it might be just painted on. You know, a very very happy for Tony Christopher their programs. But I don't I don't know. I don't know that I will watch it because it because I just. Oh, it's not necessarily be productive. And it won't be entertaining.

"Don is next up in Saint Louis. Hey, don. How you doing Paul? Thanks for taking my call. Thank you. What question and I'll Paul jazz advanced if I'm asking and you've done this. But I'm a little surprised that I haven't heard you speak out on behalf of an SEC school that the punishment doesn't exactly fit the crime in the case of Missouri. If you've done that. What I've primarily done is talk to people about the case. Okay. Just an asking your opinion. Do you think the punishment fits the crime and the case of Missouri ruling? It sounds excessive to me Don based on my long history of watching NCWA cases adjudicated. Well, I think that you have a form with your national show to maybe stick up for school like, Missouri. Even though we're on the outline of the SEC, and and we're one of the movies, and and we're not really totally indoctrinated into the SEC colts. Or the dot? I understand that. I appreciate that. But I think it's I think it's more important to understand how we got to this point. I I mean, there's a long line of people that are throwing hand grenades right now at the NC double A, and we had one of them on here yesterday. Jay bilas. We had another one on today and TJ mo-. We've we've disseminated John son volts comments vario Dems comments on. I'm not really sure what I I could add all that. I'm I'm fascinated by the reaction from zuri. And and I think it's it is as Dave matter said one of the few times, we've seen everyone Missouri on the same page at the same time seems a little bit late. Nevertheless, it's. I get it. I see so many national people speaking out that the NC double A ruling is ridiculous that the punishment doesn't fit the crime. And also, listen, I want you to understand. I am no fan of the NC double A. I think there I think the way they meet out punishment. I is often curious, but, but I I do I'm simply trying to explain that the NC double A is a big organization, but what this is about is not Mark emirate, someone I I don't have much respect for this is a committee that made this this determination. This isn't the NC double proper. Well, are you wear the one line from the conference call yesterday where David Roberts the chief hearing officer was asked are you? He was asked by I think, it was gave the arm and the power Mizzou rivals. Do you think it's Missouri? You think it's you're setting a precedent here that maybe the wrong thing to do is cooperate with the NC double A and admit to anything in the actually said, well, you you might say that what kind of what kind of message is that sending to the member schools when the NC double A says something like that. You're better off not being forthcoming like the reasonable dining, by the way. Yeah. He he is. I mean, I think it was it was a rare slip up of someone from the NCAA telling the truth because. I think I mean, but Don the circumstances here, I think are a little bit interesting. And I think we're Missouri. Started this process behind was the fact that they were coming off probation and basketball. And I think that put a new group of administrators who believe in doing the right thing. And I think they did the right thing by cooperating, and it'd probably in the end turned out to be the wrong thing. That that that to me is really the sad part of this gas. I think he'd gone your position could make a statement about that about how long it is for the NC double A to for relatively minor infraction to well and call a metro would call allegations of academic fraud. Minor infractions. Compared to some of the others that have been recently brought forth like the one at North Carolina. You don't think Missouri situations fairly minor, and there's number numerous incidents of schools that that did far more than poor that received no postseason bowl baying or anything like that. It's just almost like the NC double as trying to make any day. Well, let me ask you this though, Don, I'm really I'm really interested in why you think the NC double A would want to make an example out of the university of Missouri..
