John Solomon on the FBI's Million Dollar Offer to Christopher Steele
"Going to ask an indelicate question. When is the first time what year did an article appear under your byline? Give me a date. March 2017 is the first time I started to unravel with no, no, no, no, no. The first article you ever wrote as a journalist. Oh my gosh, I was 16 years old, so let me do the math on that. It would have been 19 80 5. Okay, 1985. So almost 40 years ago, 37 years in the business. I have to ask you, have you ever in any type of case? Heard of the FBI offering a $1 million against a political candidate for dirt. Have you ever in 37 years have you ever heard that? This town, this type of money only is reserved for people like I'm the most wanted list, like the most wanted terrorism. They offer between one and 5 million. If you get one of those guys, I never heard it offered up against an American, never heard it up, offered up during an election. Never heard it offered up against a sitting presidential candidate and eventual future president. And more importantly, not only have I not heard it, I interviewed lots of FBI agents and experts in former assistant directors, all of them said to the T this is insane. We would never do this. This had to come from the 7th floor of the FBI. Meaning the leaders, should we? Yeah, James Comey and Andrew mccabe.
Kash Patel Explains the Latest in the Igor Danchenko Case
"Welcome back to the program. I have to be honest, I'm not following this Igor danchenko case closely. Remind us who he is and the significance of this and do you still believe in John Durham? Charlie it's great to be back with you. Thanks so much for having me on again. Yeah, so eager to check off the short story is he was Christopher Steele's number one source for the false dossier, meaning that he was the one that peddled the false information to steal who was getting paid by the Hillary Clinton campaign and the FBI for being an FBI informant. But what we learned last week was that danchenko himself and this even toward me the guy who did Russia game was a paid informant for the FBI for three plus years after they fired Christopher Steele. So they used their corruption corrupt activities and their confidence in human source network to cover up their own arrogance to cover up their own corrupt actions. And what did we learn yesterday and day one of the trial? Not only that, but we learned that the FBI offered up to a million dollars for Christopher Steele to go and corroborate the false information in October of 20 16. That means they knew it was false before they went to an FBI by the court and they did it anyway and they were willing to pay a taxpayer funded bounty to lie to a federal court.
Noel Fritsch on McConnell Pulling Money Out of Arizona Senate Race
"Want to ask you from national file dot com. No, I want to ask you what's going on in Arizona. Is it true that Mitch McConnell is pulling out money behind a winnable race with Blake masters? A Charlie, thanks for having me. Your show is so important to really get a lot of the information out there to the grassroots so they know they have actionable information and they can take proper action and a meaningful effective action. Yes, Mitch McConnell has been playing footsie with this idea for over a month now. He announced it. They pulled it back. So what's happened here is he's taken about 10 million dollars off the table that his outside spending organization is packed, one of his Senate arms was going to spend two elect like masters in Arizona over Mark Kelly, Mark Kelly being the I call him misses Gabby Giffords the gun grabber. And it's really unfortunate. You've got a far left Democrat senator representing Arizona right now. You got two, really. And we have a great opportunity to get rid of one. And Mitch McConnell suddenly goes AWOL just over a month ahead of this very, very, very pivotal election. Yeah, it's sad. But there's a bunch of reasons, I think this is happening. I don't think it's because of electability. Blake can win this race. Is it because of Blake's philosophy? Is it because Blake is a true conservative? Is that why Mitch McConnell is pulling his money out? Yeah, so Charlie, if you go back several cycles and just track where Mitch spends all of his money in general, Mitch will spend money to just protect Republicans that he knows that he has under his thumb. And if there's a Republican that he feels that he might not control and have under his thumb, then he will hang that Republican out to dry. So whenever the rhino establishment comes along, every election year primary season early in the even year and tells you, hey, we've all got to be together. And we need you. And no matter what we've got to support the Republican, going into the general, this is prima facie evidence that it's just not true. That's not how Republican establishment operators act or behave. They do not exercise solidarity like the Democrats do. They leave conservatives out to dry every single time.

Rich White Liberals Were Triggered About Having Brown Neighbors
"Meanwhile, the situation in Martha's Vineyard, ladies and gentlemen, the great invasion of 2022, will certainly go down in the annals of American history as one of the most traumatic moments in the nation. When rich white liberals were confronted with the fact that they might have brown neighbors. It is, I know people were triggered. It was an incredibly traumatic moment for the people there in Martha's Vineyard with the 50 illegal aliens showed up looking for food and shelter. And by the way, to our knowledge, Barack Hussein Obama, who has that beautiful multi-million dollar ten bedroom mansion right there in Martha's Vineyard, did not offer a single brown person refuge in his mansion. Neither did Oprah. Now I don't know what to make of all of that, but that's just the reality of the situation. Regardless, the rich white liberals were so aggrieved that they summoned the military to come in and immediately repel the invading horde of illegals. And now they are residing at joint base Cape Cod. But the fallout from all of this continues.
Caller: Barack Obama Can Host the Illegals at His Home
"Hi, Todd. Well, I just think that as being that they deported these poor people. That maybe what was said, the people sent were in divers enough. So maybe we ought to send about 250 and plan them right in front of Barack Obama's house, with that big piece of property he should take care of him. Yeah, look, there was there was somebody from Martha's Vineyard. I want to play some audio for you web. This lady was, I believe, in charger is in charge of the homeless department there on the island. Let's take a listen. What are the most difficult challenges right now? The difficult challenges are. We have, at some point in time, they have to move from somewhere else. We can not, we don't have the services to take care of 50 immigrants and we certainly don't have housing. We're in a housing crisis as we are on this island and to do it. We can't house everyone here that lives here and works here. We don't have housing for 50 more people. All right, so Webb. Here you go. We've got the housing director there saying we don't have any place to put these 50 people. Web there are dozens and dozens of empty mansions right now on that island. But here's the other thing too. They could set up a tenth city on Barack's 29 acres or better than that web Obama's got ten bedrooms in that multi-million dollar seaside mansion. You'd probably get 5 or 6 apiece in each of the rooms.
For Sports Agents LIV Golf Is a 'No Brainer'
"I think I got to take the perspective of an agent right now. Because if you think about this, the age of right, when you're a player, a lot of these high profile guys, they literally are on a leash by their agent. They don't do anything that their agent says not to do. A robot and the best sense of the word, and then when their agent tells them to show up where this, eat that, talk to him, get this phone number, play golf with him, they do it, right? They do it. So a lot of these dudes, especially these younger guys, can get swayed by the agents. So much and if I'm taking the agent's perspective here on Cameron Smith and he's got a $100 million fishing line out in front of him, guess what the agent fee on the PGA Tour is the normal one is. 20%. It's 20 percent. So 20 million dollars of that 100 million would go to this agent. That, that's generational money for the agent. Not just Cameron Smith, so what do you think that agents pushing for? What do you think bubba Watson and Dustin Johnson, all their agents were pushing for? All Greg Norman has to do is get a bunch of agents on his side. That's it. And he's going to have a full roster period. But so that's kind of my perspective on it. I've got kind of an aged point of view at this point with the live because the agents want these guys to take it more than anything. It's the biggest cut in professional sports. There's not another pro sport that pays 20%. To their agents.
NY Rep. Lee Zeldin Discusses Attack at Campaign Event
"Talk about your experience a week ago. I texted you as soon as I heard you up the next day, what is the latest? I know the New York authorities, local or sheriffs released the person who attacked you. How did it go down? Give us an update on everything that happened to you. The latest update is that over the weekend, the U.S. attorney's office charged this person and he was re arrested and he's currently being detained. That night, right after the attack had taken place, I was saying that we can't be seeing this attack or get released back out on the street due to cash flow, but I was predicting that it was something that would probably happen. It'd be wrong if it would happen, but that's New York's cash flow spare law for you. And ensure enough just hours later, he was released. New York's cash flows bail law is resulting in all sorts of stories all across the state where people are getting released from prison without any type of judicial discretion. We just had an issue a few weeks ago in New York where two Mexican cartel drug smugglers were busted with 1.2 million dollars worth of crystal meth and they were instantly rereleased back out on the street due to cash flow spell. I'm grateful for all the people who are thinking quick on their feet there Thursday evening. Instantly within a moment, jumped on stage, they subdued the attacker. I'm grateful to the Monroe county sheriff's office. They responded quickly. They were there within minutes and they were professionals. And fortunately, this didn't end up any worse than it did, but it was pretty nuts. What did happen?
Americans Cannot Stand the Media, Wishing We Had a Free Press
"And age Republicans and independents who lean to the Republican Party Are much more likely than Democrats and democratic leaders to say journalists should always strive to give every side equal coverage 87% to 68% So in other words Democrats in those who think like Democrats really don't think Republicans should get Covered But it's not a matter of Republicans getting covered or Democrats can uncover it is at ladies and gentlemen Only one is the news It may not have been involved Democrats are Republicans But here's the bottom line America can not stay in the media It's not because we oppose a free press it's because we we wish we had one It's because we embrace freedom of speech And we want a free press But we don't we don't need chuck Todd or George Stephanopoulos or this one or that one To pretend that they're the defenders of a free press No they're not They're the defenders of their multi-million dollar salaries
Worship, Works And The Kingdom Of God - burst 1
"Welcome to live behind the veil and atmosphere where men and women of God speak his word to this age and bring his kingdom to this earth. Do you have ears to hear and eyes to see what God is doing in this hour? Let us join our host and the family's conversation as the Holy Spirit is unfolding. The word behind the veil. Hi everyone, I'm Ron your host, and on this podcast, the family discusses how God wants to move through every aspect of our daily lives. It's our attitude of worship that draws him into all that we do. I work through the salvage yard and I was able to buy cars. And I fixed them up and I used them for my family. And I'd sell them and make a little profit. And I had the opportunity to rebuild a wrecked car, and the wrecked car was given to a friend, I'd met a couple times. But he was commissioned to pastor and Detroit. It was a gift to this guy. To take and start his ministry in Detroit. My heart went with that car. And my heart went with him. That car bore a connection. From me to him. I don't think I saw him again for maybe a year or two. But I always had that spirit connection. There was always a draw to pray for him to believe for him. And many times in our work, things like that, opportunity comes up, that we can do things. My work was a form of worship, right? There was numerous ones where that principle was put into play. It doesn't matter what you do. For somebody, put your heart into it. I used to do stairs for a living. And I would do custom multi-million dollar homes and bend handrails and do all the fancy woodwork. I would inevitably get into jobs that were over my head. One of the most memorable times is when I just started, I was required to learn from the ground up so I had to spend two years in the wood shop learning to build all the parts that the installers were taking out and using. Finally, after a couple of years, I went to the owner of the company, and I said, you know, I've been here two years. You promised me if I would stay, I would be afforded the opportunity to become an installer. And so he broke down and let me, you know, become a friend to an installer. And I was out there as an apprentice a couple of years anyway, finally they decided that I was knowledgeable enough to go on my own, so the first job they sent me on, they decided to send me on this custom home that was already built, people living in it, and they wanted to redesign the staircase. I was working in an environment where people were living, and so there was already finished floors finished carpeting and everything that I had to work with without destroying what they had. And I was working on marble floors and all this type of thing, and trying to put post into marble floors without destroying the marble. Oh my God. After about a week of that, I sat down one day, and I just broke down was no one was home, obviously, I was just crying, and I said, lord, I can't do this. I just don't know what to do. And he never did ask me about that. It was like, get up, go back to work. So I did. And I kept working, working and finally got the job done. I felt good about what I did. I felt like I did the best I could in about two weeks later I got called into the office by the owner. And sat down in front of his desk and he said, I just received a letter from these people that you did this custom staircase, and they said it was the best work they've ever seen. My job was on the ground, and I knew that it was just God. I mean, I got it done that because I was above my abilities, but he just helped me do it, and I ran as so many other times like that where I would bid a job and then I would get into it and realize, oh my goodness, this is stuff I've never done before, and yet the lord would show me. What to do, I believe if your heart is doing it unto the lord and your worshiping in it, then he's there. And then amazing things happen. Right. So that's the fun of walking with the lord. Yeah. You know, I know they're aspects of walking with the lord that sometimes, you know, you kind of go, well, it's not totally fun. I think there are more delightful things in a walk with God than there are things that are hard. No kidding. It's easier if you open up and submit your heart to a. And give yourself and let him change you and do his work in your art. It's a lot easier. It's like I used to always wonder, you know, where Jesus went to the cross and despise the shame for the glory set before him, and always wondered what glory. What glory, where's the glory set before me, lord? But these are the stories that that's the glory set before you win. He comes through with his special gift. Yeah. It's just incredible. I know Bill and I were working with a couple in the ministries on some programming for excel work. You know, I have no bill and I were looking at this and looking at that and we looked at each other and we just said, you know, there's just no way to go get from here and we both just kind of bowed our heads before the lord and the next thing I know there was such a flow and we had totally got the programming going and done and it was pretty amazing we just said that was the lord it was in us getting that accomplished. Sometimes God brings you to the end of your own faith. So that he can impart his own to you so that he's the one really getting the glory as we're talking here, you know, none of us are admitting that I knew it. I knew I could do that. You know, we're all saying, man, I fell short. It's really true. Yeah. As we give ourselves as worshipers through the vocations and the whatever we're doing, God honors that. With taking it and carrying it far beyond his returning love to us for doing it. And we don't know how far things like that go. And we'll probably never know, but does it matter? Because it's done unto the lord. I think we're putting into practice that principle that we do all things is unto the lord no matter what you do. Right. That's the truth. Give God an opportunity to be a blessing through you. Right. Dodge creating a heart in each one of us to serving, and we all can't be one thing. The body of Christ is made up of many parts. There is a deep revelation in vision of the kingdom of God that we're talking about. Yes. The kingdom is truly a kingdom. Yep. And what's amazing about it is if you open your heart to the lord and let him in to your heart and give him the opportunity to move through you and whatever vocation, wherever you're at, whether you're the president of the United States or you're a janitor. God doesn't look at it like, wow, you're the president or uro janitor. He's looking at your heart, and if your heart's open to him, all of a sudden whatever you're doing and wherever you're at, amazing, amazing things can happen through menial tasks, your everyday life, and that's the kingdom. It's God moving through simple people that have just opened their heart Jesus actually served others he washed people's feet and that was the most menial thing you could do. Back in his time, and so what you're saying is so true. The thing that you're doing to serve one another are the things that God just treasures. That's the thing of honoring Christ in your brother. That's right. Right. In ex 6, it talks about the early church and how there was a complaint that came up, where the Hellenistic Jews, the widows, were not being served properly. And so they got all the disciples together and then they said, you know, we really need to focus on the word and administering here. It's not good for us to wait on tables. Pick 7 people who are full of the spirit, you know who I'm talking about, right? This guy, Stefan, full of the spirit, serving tables, and here he is at the same time out doing signs and wonders and moving in God, and so this just illustrates the point of it doesn't matter what you're serving as. Right. Here's a guy serving tables to the widows. And at the same time here he is out here doing signs and wonders and causing such a stir that they ended up killing him. That's true. And now we talk about him in the Bible. Yeah. Exactly. What's interesting about that story as you were talking about that I've never seen before, what did he do to minister to those widows? I mean, I always looked at it. Yeah, he was serving tables and everything and then he was doing miracles and all that. But maybe the real miracle is what he was doing in the hearts of those widows. Sure. Meeting a need. You think about the guy who had the hardest time trying to figure out what he was going to do when he grew up, Joseph. God gave him a dream and boy, he was so proud of that dream he had to tell his brothers. And his brothers wanted to kill him. Boy, it took him some time. But then God placed him where he wanted him. And I think if we are in motion, if we are doing something, it is about living and living with a living father we may never know some of the results of what God has done through our hands through some putting in a little switch here, changing out some points in a car, singing a song that didn't make sense to anybody else or, you know, designing a building that ended up being burnt down. It doesn't matter. It doesn't matter one bit. It is all about our relationship with the lord. We've seen on this podcast that as we walk through our daily lives, if our hearts are set in worship to the lord, we will find his unseen presence in everything that we do. Experiencing the impartation of God's word through his family is life. As this time in his presence blessed you, then please subscribe to our podcast at live behind the veil dot com. If you would like to contact the family with questions or topics that you would like to discuss, you can email them to living epistles at live behind the veil dot com. Stay connected, tuned in and grow with the family as the lord unveils his word to us live. Behind the video.
Exposing a Multi-Million Dollar Democrat Scheme With Heidi Ganahl
"Kunal, who is running for governor of Colorado, Heidi, welcome to the program. Hey, Charlie is so good to see you. Thanks for having me on. So I want to talk to you about a couple things about your race, but first I want to try to nationalize this for our audience. You're mentioned in this article in The Wall Street Journal. Why Democrats are funding the GOP fringe about how some of your opponents are actually getting benefit from Democrat super PACS. This is something that is now happening in more and more primary races across the country where Democrats are inserting themselves into our primaries. Tell us about this and tell about how it applies to your race. Yeah, it's been crazy the last few weeks. We've found out that the Democrats are putting about $3 million into our race for governor, our primary race. So they're trying to pick their opponents. And they certainly don't want to run against me. That's very evident as the polling looks great for me going up against one of the wealthiest guys in Colorado who's destroying our state here. And I am a fighter, as you said, I am ready to take it to the map Jared polis and win back our beautiful state, but he wants to keep me from even getting through the primary by dumping millions of dollars into the Democrat governors association and another organization progress now that he helped found a few years ago.

Will There Be Charges Against Hunter Biden & Joe Biden?
"For two years, people were shut down. Donald Trump tried to raise Hunter Biden's shady business deals with China. Oh, he's crazy. He's just Donald Trump. Biden said there's nothing to it. Well, settle in and witness the unfathomable. Here is NBC's Hallie Jackson, the morning on The Today Show. Hey there, Craig. Good morning to you. And this morning, we're learning more about the president's son and the paying off of a multi-million dollar tax bill he owed. Now the open question for both Hunter Biden legally and President Biden politically is whether or not there will be any charges in this federal criminal investigation. With federal prosecutors poring over Hunter Biden's finances, investigating whether he violated federal tax law this morning a representative for the president's son tells NBC News, his IRS Bill totaling about $2 million has been paid off. Two people familiar with the matter. Say the money was arranged by one of the younger Biden's new attorneys. Hollywood lawyer Kevin Morris, best known for brokering a deal for the South Park TV show. Does paying that tax bill wash away any liability that Hunter Biden may have now? Paying the tax bill. If in fact that's what he did, doesn't undo the crime. It would be like returning money to a bank that you robbed. You still rob the bank. The president's son and his company brought in about $11 million between 2013 and 2018 working as an attorney, a board member to a Ukrainian gas company accused of bribing a prosecutor, and for a joint venture involving a Chinese businessman. Now accused of fraud, according to an NBC News analysis of a copy of Biden's hard drive, and iCloud account obtained by NBC from a representative for Rudy Giuliani, as well as documents released by a Senate committee. During the campaign, then candidate Biden denied his son profited off of China connection.

"It's very frustrating. Because you have to think about it from the giants. I is that they're thinking we're playing amazing baseball. And we're still only two and a half games up so it does go both ways yet. Dodgers have won twenty seven of thirty three right not been able to pick up any ground on those guys and they but they're not able to push away from us either so that's a good portion of it. We're down to seventeen games right. Yes only seventeen games but it's also there's you can see some things in the dodgers that are happening right now. Gavin luxe came up and he's hitting the ball it looks really good. It's not it's not. He doesn't have a lot of power hitting singles doubles. But that's all you really need for him. He's i'll tell you what. Greg i think. I think cody bellinger may have turned the corner to them i you i hope so. From his settled on his swing. You could see it last night. He's he's narrowed a stance a little bit. And he's pretty lou. As joe davis pointed out its kind of loosen the shoulders He looks more relaxed. The play he looks more comfortable at the plate. Allehanda bend the knees. Yeah had the double. The other night had a single last night last night to double last night too I feel like he may have turned the corner. And maybe the dodgers did the right thing by grinding and grinding and grinding and continuing to send him to the plate so one of the biggest things that people talk about his shoulder and i think that's one of the biggest things like you saw last night. What the shoulder actually means the shoulder was when he hit a long fly ball that died at the warning track. That's the show. Everything else is just his approach at the plate so now that he's actually kind of taken walk here and they're hitting a double the last night's you're kind hoping that that's where he's going but we still have the seat. I feel good about it. I feel. I think we've turned the corner. With cody. bellinger turned the corner. I mean he is not a one seventy hitter. He is not a one seventy hitter one sixty or whatever it is right now. He's just not that guy. He is a much much better player so much potential there and if we can get them right for the postseason what a boost for the dodgers offense. What a boost. For the dodgers. I was looking forward to a really fun. Pennant race in september back and forth dodgers giants trading leads. I'm kind of at the stage. Where just they just feel like a team that has some magic to it under his postseason magic. I don't know if it's just a regular season thing. They looked like they were going to die out a little while ago. We're back before that series. The dodgers remember they lost a bunch of those games brewers raves. They came in it. Looks like all the guys were hurt. And they're their their pitching rotation down to like two healthy starters and for whatever whatever they've got going on up there they've been able to whether and they just keep winning. I almost think i was of the opinion and win the west now. I'm i'm kind of moving off. That i just think giants have it this year. Though give up. I rea- so negative today. You hate her or you hate the manning brothers you think. The giants are winning the division mobile. What is wrong with age. You get up on the wrong side of the bed today. I don't know you know what it. I know what it is. I was doing organizing at my house. So the you know when you're organizing you're in this mood is like you have the throw it away. Donate or keep right. And i'm gonna throw it away mode like toss toss on us that task task. Give it away toss. I'm like very ruthless today. With my organizing that i was doing so i think that's that's affecting my my my hot takes every type. The giants have been on the east coast or something because they seem to be playing early and every time before the dodger game even starts today ran like no drama. It's like they win early or break. Open a lead. We're like oh we got to win or else we get a win or else not stepdad. Leo's giants fan. He's the way part of this. Oh bag magic. Dust team of destiny thing he says you and gregor such homers. Honestly if you're a fan of a team you are a homer for that team not stepped. Leo is a homer for the giants. And i will fully admit i a home. His fan all right coming up next for you. I want to get to this midseason nba tournament. Which has once again been suggested by adam. Silver in the nba. And whether or not this is actually possible. And don't forget. Mondays are now dollar mondays here on seven ten. Espn every monday. Get a chance to win ramps tickets and if you win you get a shot at a million bucks. Every winner will give us their prediction of the two super bowl teams in the final score. If you nail that you get a million bucks so million dollar monday start next monday. Mason ireland seven ten espn..

"Third tier. I wait a minute. I'd say that's probably right greg. Would you say he's a third. Tier quarterback dare car. Yeah no he's higher than that. no. I think he's third tier third tier. Where does it depends on what you consider. Okay here is probably is probably practiced mahomes. He's on the patch moons. Tom brady. he's not a second probably well. Not aaron rodgers up.

I would say he's he's he's like oh if he has a good year this year. Also yes i think. Second tier and i think derek carr is third tier. Like maybe i the the point about this being his preseason. That's a good point. But i've felt like that for a while when i watch him like he. Just i don't know if he just throws it too hard if it's touch issue or if it's a behind in front like just the timing and a touch issue with him that doesn't he doesn't make the plays like jared goff does realize what are you thinking. You're waiting to blow it free. I don't feel like you're saying he's not as bad as goff. No but he's not as good as matthew stafford right. Yeah that's some sort of our break on seventeen.

Usc really go in agreement. Yeah i think it's a really good higher if they to be a really good higher. I still think it's going to be. Luke fickle but eric is a really good choice all right so coming up Cool way did you propose. How did you do it. Did you surprise her. And did anybody have a proposal. Go wrong eight.

When you get raiders mo- it's like a whole bunch of hot takes so we're talking about that kid at florida state proposed to his girlfriend on the field after the seminoles got upset by jacksonville state.

"It's gonna turn because of the stadium because of this because the stadium that was there throughout the preseason. Yeah but nobody actually got to go. Nobody got to be at the stadium for a real football. Nobody got to see matthew stafford and the way he's gonna light up the league. Nobody got to see mcvay and matthew stafford capable you can build it up and do it do it. do it again. See what happens. I'm doing again. I'm doing again.

There's an interesting story. Florida state lost to jacksonville state on saturday night in. What was a monumental upsets you. Oh yeah own. Yes so florida. State offensive lineman brady. Scott actually invited his girlfriend onto the field after the game again. They have lost so this florida state guy has just lost in what will go down as a historic upset of his seminals. He invites his girlfriend down to the field and he proposes marriage now if there was ever a time not to propose marriage it. Yeah after you get you get stung by. I think subdivision team. Right jackson really was like jacksonville state. I think is fairly close to tallahassee. So that's like the equivalent of like ucla. losing to cal state northridge or long beach or something equivalent. I think that's i think that's good. That's good a good comparison. Although i don't this isn't even a division. One team is our division team. Wow so first of all so once. You davis or something you know. Wait till after you win a game. Yeah way of live in the middle of this and it went viral. Didn't like there's photos of it went viral everywhere and he kinda got ripped. It's everywhere it's i know. Oh just such mean. I guess i look. Here's what happens. You have plans. Probably invited her family his family. Probably there's all these people who are there waiting and knowing that this was going to happen after the game and everybody who's gonna be there like after a huge upset like that just like the plans on the land pay like. Just turn it around pig glenn. By the way very very underrated. I had to really work at that. One too on the land land pay. Yeah that's pretty good. Yeah good radio proposed. Have i ever proposed right. No i proposed like would you like to move in with me right. I've made a proposal right but a marriage proposal is super nerve wracking. Like crazy nerve wracking. It is so if you have to wait like oh wait. We didn't win here. But i have a plan to do it right here. And this is what's gonna happen. I'm not waiting no chance. No are you married or no. Am i married yet. No i am divorced. Then you're divorced wife number one. How did i propose so. I had a whole planet. Didn't go as well as i would have liked it to but I i used our dog. And i put it around. I put the ring around the caller of the dog and i had her daughter Caller into a room and say and be be sad and they say why won't you won't you will feel better. Why don't we call the dog in there and the dog was supposed to run in jump on the bed and she was going to see the the ring unfortunately the dog ran in and shook and the ring went flying across the room so i had to go get the rings. And she's like what are you doing. It was like well. I guess. I gotta get on a knee now and do it this way. Yeah so for effort sorry to help. Try try horry. How did you proposed to the lovely brenda. We were in orlando for thanksgiving. Somebody has a timeshare from her family out there and we all met off for thanksgiving and we went to disneyworld and i waited till after the fireworks show at night. I gave Brennan's mom iphone. I said hey. Would you mind taking a picture of me and brenda in front of the castle. But i left it on video mode. Because i wanted to capture the moment right. Yeah so then she says hoar. Hey but you're on video. And i said yeah. Yeah just keep rolling your see what's going to happen so i got an e and propose but then when i look at the video doma so excited that she was pointing at the sky and great proposal. With the castle in the back it would have been great video disney fan and this and that so you know i had oliver family there and then i had the ring and everything and i had the ring with me all day so going through security and screen. I had to like make this story like you know what these tickets. I have limit check with these people over here. You and check in i. I'll be right behind you. But i went to a different check in line so they don't see the ring and i had the ring within a sweater it was. It was just crazy the way i had to hide the ring throughout the day that i can propose it but that's how i did it. That's a very nice way to do it now. How did have proposed to the lovely ramona. Well nev is a huge romantic. He likes big grand gestures. He also knows me very well and so he did. Who really smart things. He knew i would absolutely hate it if anyone else was there. I would not want a stadium proposal. I would probably say no if he did that. Because it would show that you do not know me. Okay and i also did not want like all my family and friends around him and me that's it. We're the ones getting married embarrassing weird. So he also knows that. I'm very busy in the little scattered. So he yeah not not. That is the truth so he sent me a note. I was over in beijing the olympics and he said.

"It's funny but i still just want someone telling me what the play is. And i want somebody to do the play by play by play analysis and wants a natural sound and like i felt like the game was on in the background and then shoots were talking and i was like no i want the game in the foreground in these dudes talking over the you know you know it would really be interesting. You make a good point. It would really be interesting if they did. Stick a play by. Play guy on the manning cast. Yeah just to sorta keep it a little bit in the middle of the fairway so you could keep tracking game a little better because you kind of lost track of the game. When you're watching paid. I think that was the point. Though that was the point was did not have the play by play guy to stop them so that the two of them could just talk to each other and there was times when they would have on Russell wilson or travis kelsey and they were actually just talking about the things that were happening in the game like. Oh what would you do here. We'll kind of plays is. What is what you know talking about. The actual it was felt more like two peop- people will just watching the game to get worthy experiment. And they're going to do it all year long and i will definitely dip into it because i do think it's entertaining. And it is nice change of pace. But i found myself probably leaning a little bit towards steve. Levy brand grecian. Louis riddick i i like that. I like the new crew. I like houston right to traditional broadcast. So i want to throw couple things out there. First of all argue if okay. I'm told that there are some raider fans in los angeles rams town. But i'm told there are some raider fans in los angeles.

"But the big bulk of it. Cranes bulldozers forklifts. They drove a bunch of them into the water down the beach. Would he drove down the beach on the southeast corner of the island. They drove them into the water. And when these items were in the water and they couldn't drive anything in more. They built a jetty on top of the junk they had already thrown off and continued to roll stuff out into the water. This seems so unnecessary. It's you so oddly vindictive or like just it it's like oh my god you couldn't just kind of leave it or like i don't know what the concern was basically. If we can't have it no one can. Is that kind of the. That's the only way i can interpret it. I don't know that that's what they were thinking. But then you know. And they progressively kept building this jetty out and their stories of you know someone would drive a truck off to the edge and literally jump out of it as it rolled off into the water and then they piled up stuff on the shore. They took a bulldozer and they pushed that out over the edge then. They drove the bulldozer over the edge. And this went on apparently for days to eliminate a lot of this material if yeah it's a little bit like to middle fingers up on the way out of your of your like we're outta here you know. I'm guessing this is where we intersect with scuba diving. Yes so they finished. They built this jetty out over the water and they rolled everything they cut off the edge basically and then they blew up the jetty so after time the shore looked sort of like it did before but you go down there now and from the town that the main sort of town which is Built on the location of the base. A luganville it's called You take a single lane road that goes out to the southeast corner of the island and when you get close to that southeast corner you see you. Can you have if you've come up to the the beach there. there's unidentifiable hunks of metal things. That look vaguely naval in their shape. Their axles there are broken. Pieces of coke bottles. There's all various kinds of little rusted. Bits and bobs. And then you come to next to that. There's a there's a sign. It's a national park now. And it's called million dollar point presumably because that's some rough estimate although who knows if it was much more of how much was thrown off the side of that end of the island. You have been here and did you dive in the site. Yeah absolutely what was that like. it's fascinating obviously. This happened decades ago. And as you know all over the world human made that are in the water get colonized by by life and so it starts at about twenty feet down and it actually goes down the slope of the island down to about one hundred forty feet down and basically in every direction serve as far as you can see is a reef made of war material and spite. I guess there are. there are big chunks of cranes. There's actually the remains of two boats that both sank while trying to salvage material out there intact bulldozers. You can see furniture just mounds of twisted metal. Things that were in boxes like crockery. The boxes have since gone away so like you might stumble across a teacup. It's just this vast thing and it's obviously swarming with life now being in the water. How how how far down do you need to be like a really experienced scuba or to get down there not at all you you walk in off the shore and you can snorkel it. You seem just fifteen twenty feet down at the beginning of it and you would need scuba diver scuba diving equipment to go much deeper or explore much more but you can certainly snorkel over the top of it. Wow well thank you so much for telling us this. Incredible story and my son has expressed a real interest in learning how to scuba dive. So i feel like. I have a a new a new reason. Your story makes me want to do it. And i feel like learning with my son would be a really a cool way to to explore so. Thanks for. I've already talked both of my kids into this. My daughter is obsessed with the oceans. She's literally counting the days. Until i can teach how to scuba dive. What a good like family vacation school trip to million dollar point you get history geography you get nature. You know the whole package. Yeah and wonderful. People by the way to santo is a just a a delightful island amazing kind people. Thank you to samir patel are editor in chief for taking the time to talk with me today. I see you almost every day. So it's not that crazy that we would talk but nonetheless amazing to hear about this trip and hopefully one day. Maybe you can teach me how to scuba dive.

I should start by revealing a certain amount of geographical ignorance. We're in the world. Can you just kind of position. Vanuatu for me on the map right so. Vanuatu is an island chain about a thousand miles east of the australian coast in the south pacific. It's about eighty islands. That make up the country and probably many more little itty bitty islets like a lot of the island nations down there. About three hundred thousand people live in the country and it it used to be known back in the colonial days as the new hebrides islands named after an island off the coast of scotland. So when you were in vanuatu it sounds like you did a fair amount of diving. Is that right. yeah. I went there actually specifically for the diving. There's a couple of very great diving sites including one that. I spent some time on called million dollar point but the site. It's it's more than just a cool scuba diving destination right. Like part of what makes it. So incredible is that it's got this crazy origin story tied to world war. Two is that am i right about that. There is a great story bind as you can imagine as the. Us and japan and australia were battling over the pacific. Any piece of land there was was valuable and and espiritu. Santo is the biggest of vanuatu's islands. How big is spirit to santo as south pacific islands go. It's pretty big. It's about fifteen hundred square miles which puts it somewhere between rhode island and delaware. That's pretty big actually large island. It's mostly uninhabited. Something like forty thousand people live on this particular island. Oh so it was a very valuable piece of real estate. It was Occupied by the us in world war two and they created a very large Naval base there. It was the largest naval base in the pacific outside of honolulu Even though it didn't see a lot of action which is why people don't remember it quite as well but it was. It was known as buttons. At least that's an extremely cute name for a naval base. But there were there. Were literally thousands of soldiers stationed there. One of the soldiers was james michener. Who would go on to write. Tales of the south pacific upon which the musical south pacific was based and they did a lot of construction. They had a lot of material. they built roads. They built power plants. they built hospitals There's still on the island loads of quonset huts that they put up They built movie theaters They built a lot of infrastructure there on the island. I didn't realize i knew that there were like planes that landed and ships. I didn't realize there was a giant naval base and just kind of sheer presence. Thousands of soldiers like what a big change to these tiny These tiny islands so they didn't see a lot of action in the war. What happened sort of at the end of the war. Well that's interesting so by the time the war ends in various places the us military had one primary goal which was bringing the soldiers back home and so they had something called operation magic carpet and re purposed any vessel. They could find to bring soldiers back home to the us. There was another operation called operation. Roll up which dealt with all of the gear and material that was on these islands. Now there wasn't a lot of millions of tons of material in the south pacific but back home the government wanted to encourage manufacturing and they didn't want to flood the market with all of this material. That was coming from the south pacific so bringing the boys home was much more important and in some sense the gear was much less important so there is obviously almost like a small cities worth of material sitting on espiritu santo in vanuatu. Okay so then. At the end of the war the us has been there invested tons of money. They've got tons of material probably like fancy war equipment. So they were they going to give it to the neva. New ought to what. What are they going to do with all the stuff that they'd built and made their i would say across the south pacific. This was a question in a lot of places. What are we going to do with this material. I have to admit it probably never even occurred to them to give it to the navan too because that is the way that the world worked at the time so they actually offered to sell it to our allies. The french Four pennies on the dollar. They would sell all this material to the french The french being wise negotiators. I suppose at this point Kind of drag their feet on the deal and stalled assuming that the us would leave all of this material behind if they couldn't strike a deal and they would just be able to take it. They'd scoop sweep in and scoop it all up for zero money like why. That's that's actually pretty clever idea right like okay. Yeah what are you going to do. What are you going to do with it savvy and there was lots of there was lots of mature. There was construction equipment. There are cranes bulldozers vehicles Crates of coca cola and crockery. You can imagine like the interior contents of a large town in one place That that the french assume would be left behind and they would be able to to collect it. Is that not what happened. It is definitely not what happened. Okay these sources come down to us from various people over the years so we don't know what the actual sort of naval leaders of the united states per thinking at this moment but the idea was that they weren't going to leave it behind for the french they weren't going to give it to the ivano onto and they weren't going to take it home so what they did was started some fires. They burn some of the stuff on the shore And if you go there there's still some of this material there on the shore. They left some of it to frost in the jungle.

"Site from nine. Am to noon eastern four to five and then three to five eastern on abc. It's back together. Saturday also available on the espn app. Here's what nick. Sabin had to say about his young quarterback getting paid our quarterback and he's talking about bryce yawn already has approached ungodly numbers. It's almost seven figures and it's like the guy hasn't even played yet. But that's because of our brand david shaw knows. It certainly wasn't an accident that saving chose to include that little bit of information percival. Nick sabin is smarter than any ten of us in this room combined and so there's no way that that was just a throw in is to me. Nick wanted a plant. That and make sure people knew that. It's a great way to recruit people to come to which the guy hasn't started a college football game and he's already signed a whole bunch of deals to make money to me. I don't think that's what this whole thing is supposed to be about. I don't believe that that is true. Market value. I think that's alabama value. But that's not market value for an individual which was what this is supposed to be about more money more problems. Listen this locker room. A name image likeness when i say those words. How do you think it affects. What goes on inside a locker room absolutely more money more problems. You get a twenty year old in nineteen year old in eighteen year old and sometimes a seventeen year old getting six seven eight hundred thousand dollars. It's going to be a problem. Let me take y'all back to seventeen and eighteen year old days. When i was getting recruited by all the schools ended up choosing texas because it was close to home. There were no. there was no tax classes. I didn't know about taxes. I didn't learn about investments. None of that stuff and so imagine an eighteen year old with all this money. Do i think the players should get paid. Yes but you saw how. Nick sabin through this information out there. Not only because of the brand. But he said it recruiting some texas player. He said in. Texas talking to some coaches and quarterbacks and so we all know why nick nick sabin said what he said before. A high schooler about to be in college. It's a lot of money and that's a lot issues. One hundred percent. He knew exactly what he was doing. But here's the thing. Quarterbacks get the shine regardless so it doesn't matter you have to find a way to build that in the locker room regardless right but the best example i've seen is kenny. Pickett have you seen kenny. Pickett from pitt. You want you want endear yourself to your teammates and not 'cause that divide brogan is i deal with the restaurant in pittsburgh and guess what he did. His lama get to eat there every week for free. Gets you some of that. So you definitely have to be able to do to bridge the to as a quarterback you assume that leadership role and take care of your big boys and take care of your teammates but the shine has always been on the skill players and the shine will continue now. The money will come there. In the coach's responsibility with the players have to make sure that doesn't create a division to make sure everybody gets a little something something to be happy lost up. Listen it's a change but it's a change. It isn't going the way name. Image likeness is here to stay just like a lot of things. Nick sabin crazy like a fox. He knew what he was doing. We see you nick. Not about idea either. All right sam david. We'll do it again tomorrow again. Continued coverage as texas and oklahoma looked to join the southeastern conference. See you at three o'clock tomorrow.

"Yeah everyone wants to play in the college football playoff. Everyone wants to play against the best and we all know over the last decade. The best has been the so the fact that texas has the potential to join the sec. Now not only. If you're getting the best college the best high school athletes that are going to go to college but now they get a chance to stay at home right. I grew up in dallas. It's a three hour drive to austin. But now you're playing the alabama's the lsu's the cream of the crop of the you don't have to go anywhere. All the recruits will likely stay at home. At least there's a better chance they'll stay at home then leave. We often say there's two sides to every coin. I got to tell you. I'm not sure there is on this when to your point it is all upside for texas a little different situation in some ways for oklahoma. Let's circle back. How does the move to the sec potentially affect recruitment at oklahoma well. I don't think it's going to hurt oklahoma. The only the only place. I see negative for oklahoma. Is they've tried to recruit the state of texas. They've landed twenty two. Espn three hundred or treats from texas over the last five classes so now if other sec schools are trying to go into texas. If the longhorns are closing the gate to the state maybe that impacts oklahoma in that way. I don't think it's going to knock them down. But guys i when i saw this i did not understand this. Move for oklahoma. I don't think it's going to hurt them. But i also don't think it's going to help them. They've made the college football playoff four times. They're recruiting at an elite level. They're basically handpicking the quarterbacks that they want they're going across the country they've landed prospects in twenty one states over the last five years. They have everything they needed. So i get it. If texas was kicking and klein out of this conference and they couldn't keep texas in the big twelve and they don't wanna get left behind. I get it but if there was a chance to keep texas in the big twelve. I don't get it for oklahoma. Because i don't think it helps them the way that it helps other programs. I don't think it hurts them. But i don't see in terms of helping them. I understand what you're saying because they've dominated the big twelve and they're in the college football playoffs but when they get in. Those counts football playoffs one thing. We see a lot of a lot of high numbers being hung on those defensive guys. A lot of guys a lot of those numbers just getting inflated and then getting destroyed. Here's the thing if you recruit better on the defensive line now if you keep more guys in the state of texas on the defensive line and you build it more because of proximity because here's the thing one of the most important factors every single year in recruiting not with everybody but there was majority recruits and san talk. This and i can talk this being close to home. So i think those elite people that are in texas and oklahoma. Now have more of a tendency to stay in. Especially they're going to get the quarterback. Why because every the signs of oklahoma. You're going to be up for a heisman. Then you're going to be a first round. Pick lincoln riley just comes in with a piece of paper and goes quarterback. Just sign here. Just go ahead and commit because you want then you want to go. Look what i've done with those people. But i think it's the other positions. It's the defensive line the defense they really struggled that this recruiting could help bring about and because lincoln's going to do the offense themselves we know that and people talk about man. This move doesn't make sense for oklahoma. We'll let me make it make sense for oklahoma. Doesn't make sense for recruiting right. You're getting good recruits. It doesn't make sense for trying to win the big twelve. You've won it six years in a row where does make sense when it comes to your pocket book. Those checks will be a whole lot. Fatter when you're part of the sec. And all of a sudden now their stocks of maybe one point three billion dollar. Tv deals coming up..

"Recruits in the twenty twenty one class by a long shot one hundred three total alabama accounted for twenty to the big ten in. Acc were next with fifty six and fifty four and the big twelve had the fewest among these conferences. They totalled thirty. Oklahoma and texas had nineteen of those between them. Tom van and joins our panel now and again that article add on. Espn plus tom. Let's go piece by piece. we'll start with texas. How does this potential move affect recruiting for the. Longhorns might sound surprising because they just went through a coaching. Change but texas has been recruiting. Pretty well over the last five years. They've had two top five recruiting classes. Then i think probably a lot of people at home are surprised to hear that. But they had a development problem. Not a recruiting problem. So they've already been recruiting well. But texas has had a small leg up on them with in-state prospects texas and m. has been able to look at a lot of those texas recruits and. Say you can stay home. You can play in the state of texas and also play in the every other year. Your parents can drive to our place in watch. You play against alabama which is a big selling point for a lot of recruits so now if texas joins the it levels out the playing field and i talked to a few texas prospects one in particular twenty twenty three david hicks. He's one of the top prospects in the next class. He told me if texas joins the it makes it more appealing to go to texas. So we'll see if that could level out the playing field with texas and texas in state and then you look at what steve sarkissian has been able to do in the past. He's coming from the sec. He's built relationships in those states. He's recruited california. He's already capitalizing on that for texas. Now if they can go in and play in that territory and get some of those recruits as well. I think it's going to be a huge advantage. For the longhorns no doubt. I don't think there's anything you can find. You know negative. What else comes with this too by the way way. More cash cash equals vigor facilities bigger indoor facility bigger indoor facilities bigger weight rooms that we get to put on camera and you get to see and kids get excited about so recruiting. Not only do you get to stay close to home and still play those big marquee.

"But you got the big ten. Who's who's going to be a powerbroker in this. I think it's the home for these individual teams. They're going to have to go out and get it. Listen can they become a big brand and still bring in. Byu in boise in houston and smu and ucf then could still be the big twelve. But they don't have the they won't have the power they won't have the clout. I don't know if they have the automatic bid when all this is said and done so the big twelve as we know it is going to be no more. It's to me. It's a matter of where these pieces are going to end up going absolutely real quick response for all those chess players. You don't need a queen. All you need is a king and you could still be in the game iowa. State some of these other teams. Yes david smarter to leave. I totally understand that but also it's smart to wait as well. I'm not just. I'm not just going to let you win right. We're all competitors. No one's just going to sit here and let someone mopped the floor with you. You know what you want to play that game. Let's play and i have a contract so we're going to stick with that contract but but it's not as not letting win. It's no it's not about letting you win those about having a future about being proactive in going and getting your money going getting your future. That's what it was about. Well it is. It's about your future because it's about the dollars. And we know that in texas and oklahoma and nothing else if we can't agree on anything else they do have the dollars and it remains to be seen where they end up and imagine this guys. We can't get the three of us the two of you are we. You're not gonna get five people in a room to agree what's best in this scenario much less everybody else. We got a long way to go and it's going to be an interesting ride still to come on college. Football live obviously much more to this. You really can't talk about it at the texas. Oh you shake up.

"Thinking about mack brown and dabo sweeney. Two of the premier coaches in college football. Both of them are not in favor of this team format. Some of them have talked to their players and the players are not in favor of this twelve team format. And so if i didn't have a seat at the table even though it may happen anyways i'm still upset and i'm frustrated by the slow. I need to pump the brakes. Slow down and really find out what really was going on over the last two years but with all due respect to out show and everybody from texas texas has struggled in the big twelve the btc you and company. So i know you're bringing in oklahoma and you're bringing in that brand that's done so well but it's not like we're going. Oh my god we got two guys that are teams that are going into college football playoff every year. You bring a powerhouse in oklahoma and you bring in power brand. Not another team that you're saying is going to be in the college football playoffs every year. So i just. I want to put that out there to out real quick real quick before it's pronounced out show for and we've gotta get that out. I support most. Don't hurt me the out. But i will say this. Oh you is the premiere brand name thinking one. Yes yes championships right. So that's been that's a given for texas when it comes to branding is the most valuable program in college football. And so you got the money and you got the winds. I'll take both of them. The agree well. All of that. And david. The other thing i will say. That's absolutely true. David pollack stop. That is that we will be talking about this every day. And there's a reason for that because the ramifications are far and wide it really will. It will affect recruiting. It will affect the playoffs. This will affect everything in college football. So take a look at this. If oklahoma and it still if oklahoma and texas get their way this is what the big twelve would look like with with those two teams out of the picture that conferences left with just eight teams. I always stay on top of the standings last year. They were eight and one in big twelve play. Oklahoma state baylor kansas and tcu some of the schools that will remain at least as it stands right now in the big twelve sam. We've looked at this from a lot of different directions. Pay and certainly we have talked about the perspective of the sec. And that of oklahoma in texas. Right now i want to ask you about the perspective of those teams left in the big twelve. You really can't just stand pat. I don't think so. Anyway what do you do if you're the remaining teams in the big twelve. While the first school of thought is that you would jump ship. You would abandoned ship. You'd find a new conference. You jump to the pac twelve or the big ten or the and that school of thought makes sense but in my time playing football i talked to a bunch of friends and i did the same thing they said. Hey play chess not checkers if the chess game is that the that oh you in texas think that the big twelve is going to disintegrate and therefore they'll be out of their meteorites and they can leave whenever they want to leave if oklahoma state who's upset at oh you right now if i'm baylor. Tcu you know what i might just do. I might just say you know what we're going to stay together as a conference. We don't want your seventy six million dollar buyout and sick with us for the next four years and let's see how that works for your the money you're trying to make i get you chess. Chess requires a queen and king and they just left that gone. They go into the sec. So listen this conference is in trouble. How do you salvage it. you can't remember. I was state's athletic director a couple years ago. Senate without a without. Oklahoma and texas. Were the mac like though the mountain west. That's what we are so listen.

"Welcome to a wednesday of college. Football live happy to have you with us san mateo. David pollack and heather bennett. I'm wendy knicks. Well another day another development and what should be a major conference shakeup across college football. The next step well. The fourteen current members of the southeastern conference are scheduled to get together. They plan to meet on thursday. The presidents and chancellors to talk about oklahoma and texas joining the conference now. Three fourths majority. That means eleven of the fourteen votes will be needed for approval. If it goes through the sec would become the first sixteen team supercop conference before there was any talk of. Oh you in texas though jumping ship and joining the sec. The college football playoff management committee laid out a plan for expanding the playoff to twelve teams. Now here's how that would work the six highest ranked conference champs. Make it as well as six more teams as determined by the selection committee the four highest ranked conference chance get a by and no conference would automatically qualified heather. I'll start with you. What's fascinating to me. Is that ten days ago ago we were talking about. The playoff expansion is probably the biggest story in college football now. It's almost taken a backseat but it will be affected so the question is how. How is it affected if in fact oklahoma and texas joined the sec. Well many i can tell you that. Cfp executive director bill. Hancock told me on monday that the timeline hasn't changed. That means they are still heading towards a late. September meeting where they're going to report back to the eleven presidents and chancellors. Who can change the playoff about their summer feasibility study. Here's where it gets interesting though guys the conversations now surrounding it as you saw that graphic the proposal includes the six highest ranked conference champions if. Oh you and texas go to the sec. The snowball effect leaves the question. Who are the conferences. Who are their champions. Is there a big twelve. Is there a big twelve champion. These are things that they don't know so while it's on-track for that late september meeting my sources are telling me the decision the actual implementation of it because of the uncertainty could be delayed definitely see a huge delays coming as well if anyone in the pac twelve the or the big ten. I'm frustrated right now. I wasn't involved in these conversations number one. It seems like there's a lot of behind the back. Maneuvering going on number two and number three though. I like as far as all conferences though. I may like the the additional playoff games in the additional opportunity. I need to go and decipher. I need to go and double check and look if there's anything else that we need to remove or add to this current proposition. So if i'm any member of any of the three major conferences that were not involved. I will delay this process as much as need. Be and what you see is also i hear you but a lot of people don't have the seat at the table for a reason and this ain't gonna help. I mean this is only going to put more separation when now you're becoming a league with even bigger brands even bigger voices even louder voices with more money. So we're gonna talk about this and we're gonna continue to talk about this. I feel like this is as big as aaron rodgers in the. Nfl is going to be every day. It's always going to be something. It's always oklahoma texas until we get the football. Well i can tell you guys that. Some sources have expressed some concern to me that if oklahoma and texas joined the sec. That twelve team playoff is going to be an sec. Playoff right you're talking about a ten and two. Oh you nine and three texas. They're getting in that thing and there's some concern that the will get seven teams in it some on the other side of express to me yet but wait a minute. Isn't that still better than a fourteen playoff. Where the sec is getting two or three teams in here coming from there but he even if and even just real quick..

Yep i'm always bringing things up From the podcasts and into chapter ends you know it's interesting should people should listen to the stuff because it really works. It still works. I try to most of these As evergreen so that they would last me there are some that aren't but many of them are really meant to be evergreen so with that in mind. I think you have a great topic an absolutely great topic today. And that's the million dollar referral. How did the million dollar referral come out. And you're the one who gave the million dollar for one hundred come about. Yeah that's right so the story at the million dollar federal was really quite simple And actually it was. Ah easy referral. I think what made it the million dollar for what's the off the cat So i had to contact london council. And i was checking to them. I had somebody in our Chapter who's in vogue security. So i just austin how they were planning on doing cova testing that barra. Because i knew a company that could help with security at the Made the referral and that was however on the day of the appointment which was december twenty. Four th twenty twenty hyphen evancho say Who's the who's the company that was. I was third round me at eight. Thirty a m austin me to do the appointment on his behalf as he couldn't do it so i also walk on you. This is the biggest opponent if you live. He said i calm because being loaded onto an ambulance i go i'm being rushed to emergency So i even have actually the next three for wakes so no. I attend the appointment.

It services courts The events in the setup out Remember coolmax use the entire penalty to put it together under his banner. I'm on the contract and became a million dollar contract so it was only through the power of being i. I was able to do that and it was the power team connections to allow that to be happening. I think the big thing here is i taking the time to understand events business deeply and also the members of my team businesses deeply so i could almost act as the defacto sales their own businesses to tie together to get the deal and I contract which ran. Johnny eighteen months thirty first with the million dollar contract. Now correct me. If i'm wrong but the renewal will put it over one million pounds which is a bit more than a million dollars route. It is it is about one point. Three one point four million dollars.
