Regarding some of these hysterical left wing reactions to the leaked scotus opinion by justice Alito. Chicago mayor Lori Lightfoot, I'm reading from the post millennial issues call to arms over U.S. Supreme Court. Lightfoot tweeted Monday night to my friends in the LGBTQ+ community. The Supreme Court is coming for us next this moment has to be a call to arms. She followed that up with. We will not surrender our rights without a fight, a fight to victory. Now, what makes this particularly appalling is if you contrast mayor lightfoot's tweets with that of her tweets around January 6th, 2021. During which she tweeted, I am in disbelief with what is unfolding in D.C. right now. President Trump and his enablers incited this violence, shame on every elected official in Congress and elsewhere who fomented this anti democratic insurrection by extremists. This is not democracy.

ESPN Are Innovating With Their Commentator Selection
"I love how ESPN and their team of networks is getting guys that currently play and former play, but they're not so far out like a Kurdish strange or a Dottie pepper. They're younger guys and they're getting them with their takes live. It's like the mayonnaise getting on Monday Night Football. It's similar to that in that it's way more interesting to hear Peyton Manning and Eli Manning, bullshit with young jock or whoever the hell they brought on that. I think they brought on Nelly and got Nellie's opinion on the last throw by someone in the playoffs. I don't remember who it was. But that telecast that Monday Night Football with the mannings got higher reviews. It got higher ratings than anything they've ever done because that's more interesting. People want to hear current guys that can kind of talk, the public through the mindset of what's going on on the telecast. I think it's cool. I think when I've always watched golf on TV or coverage, I come at it from a more of a different way of how I look at a golf course. Sometimes I want to know more information about the conditions that day or that pin location and specific the green speeds. What that person's got going on in that day as far as their a stuff. Those are the things that I don't really ever know while watching. Just assume you just see the best shots that day and sometimes you just don't catch on with some of the things those players are going through that day. So I'm looking forward to kind of maybe telling that side of the story a little bit and see how it goes.

I've been around a long while, and this is the first time I've heard of something like this. Neil is so did the owner of this gas station and what they tell me as well as the petroleum technician. They tell me that the thieves had a specialized remote pointed them at the two pumps put in the dispenser and stand-alone mode. He says at that point they filled up their tanks and drove away with free gas. But I lost a lot of money last night. It's a lot of money we lost. It's really bad.

The Kim/Kanye/Pete Davidson Wrestling Match Heats Up
"Kanye West versus Kim Kardashian and now Pete Davidson thing is looking like a professional wrestling fight. With both of them going back and forth. Now three of them come back and forth grabbing the mic as if they were inside the wrestling ring and shouting to millions of sycophantic fans, I've been to those WrestleMania events. They're insane. The energy there is ridiculous. My nephew's 51, he's still treats those nights raw and Sunday Night this and Thursday night that Monday Night Raw like rabid rabbit. That's what can Pete and Kanye are doing to all their fans. They're whipping them up into a frenzy. To a lot of us it looks like, well, this is damaging. This is going to be careful here. But there's some. There's something about it where they like it all. Because we've seen these people grow up right in front of our eyes. We've seen them come up and just soak in the adulation of all their fans, whether it's good news or bad news, press is press. They take it, they move on. They sign bigger deals. They make more money. It's like nothing can knock them. Even Kim being wrapped up in duct tape and blindfold and then putting a bathtub in a nightgown in Paris and rather a jewelry. She still comes out better than ever. A year or two down the road. Nothing matters.
"monday night" Discussed on Just Getting Started with Rich Eisen
"A Mercedes Benz sprinter van is the van for the job. He's a 7 time Pro Bowl quarterback. He is the reigning Walter Payton man of the year, and we say hello on the Mercedes Benz Vance phone line prior to his Monday night game against the Washington football team. We say hello to Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson. How are you doing Russell? Rich man. It's always a pleasure, man. How you been? I am doing well. I'm doing better for talking to you. It's Thanksgiving week. You know, it's that time of year. It's that time of year. Let's talk about your current situation. Sitting there at three and 7. I looked it up, Russ, because I get bored. But I'm also a lead pipe willing professional. The last time you were four games under 500 was freshman year of college for you. This is not been a feeling that you've been used to. What is it like for you to be in your current state right now, Russell? Well, you know what it is is it's an opportunity it's adversity and adversity fades. If you have the right mentality, if you can be neutral with it and understand that it's a process and understand that you take every day and you try to still find ways to get better and despite all the noise is better than math and this and that, you stay focused on the task and the mission and the mission is one game one game a week. One day at a time, one snap at a time. And we got 7 games left. And if anybody can come back, we believe we can come back and win all 7. So that's what we feel. That's what we believe that our mentality. That's what we've been saying. And that's what we're going to have to do. Yeah. And when you were four games under 500 as a freshman, you won the next four in a row. So that did happen. So these things, you have had these experiences before. And I know again talking about injuries is not something it comes across sound like an excuse or what have you. But is your hand the same right now? Russ no, I feel great. I've been obviously it's supposed to be 8 weeks or more probably most likely..
"monday night" Discussed on Just Getting Started with Rich Eisen
"Sprinter van is the van for the job. He is one of the best in the business and I meant what I said when I tweeted out this weekend, watching him play against the Arizona Cardinals that the league's better when he's up and he's active and he's balling out. The man who helped create a national tight end day, the tight end of the San Francisco forty-niners joining us prior to the Monday night are huge one for both teams against the rams the great George kittle. How are you, George? Rich. Wow. Thanks for the intro. I'm excited to be here. How's it going? Well, we threw it. I mean, that's so good. I'm excited back playing football in the last couple of weeks, being out of it tough. But I just felt good to be back out there in front of a great fans and playing with the boys again. We didn't get the dub and it wasn't the game that we wanted to play. So disappointed in that. But I'm optimistic too. We had to play on Monday Night Football and this Allen last year, so I'm very excited. I get an opportunity to play again the only game of the day on Monday Night Football. So very optimistic. Okay. And so what do you lend to the three and 5 star, the reason for it? Is there one? Is there something that you guys are talking about on this front that you want to just throw out there right now? I mean, to me, I think we just need to play better. That's all it is at the end of the day when you look at the tape of every single game that we've lost. And even the games that we've won, I just don't feel like we've played at the level that the standard that we've set, you know, I know we have a couple guys that are playing a consistent on a higher level. I mean, I need to elevate my game. I think, you know, I think everybody can just play a little bit better. You just look at it, whether it's drops. I mean, I had a bad fumble and you got a bad fumble. And said our defense up for failure. So just, hey, you got to eliminate those mistakes against ourselves a chance because we're not even doing that. Coaching hands call him plays, give us opportunities. And we're just not really taking advantage of those things. And so I really just think it's, at the end of the day, we just need to play, but you could say focus on the little things and go back to work. But we haven't worked and I think we've had a lot of really good practices and we've got to get the correlate to the game. And I'm excited about that like I said, you know, Monday Night Football. We have a whole nation looking at you to wonderful time to get the boat on the right direction. Yeah, that's right..

"Joining us now on the rich eisen show on the Mercedes Benz van phone line, a man who is as great as they come and the National Football League and his Pittsburgh Steelers are on a nice roll right now and they're rolling into Monday Night Football, which I'll be hosting the pre game and halftime show of on Westwood one radio on Monday night he is none other than Pittsburgh steeler pro bowler in all pro TJ watt. How are you TJ? I'm doing really well. Thank you for having me on. Thanks for coming on right now. How is everything with this team right now? It seems like you are on a nice stretch. Certainly compared to the beginning of the season, would you agree with that assessment, TJ wad? Yeah, I would. And I think these last few games, especially getting into the biweek at an even 500 was kind of our goal once we started out at 1.3 and then obviously being able to get a win in the division was huge this past week and we just want to continue to take it one week at a time and stack these wins. How would you categorize your role with this team? I know what I would call it, but I'm on the outside. I wonder what you would say on that front? As an outside linebacker in a three four defense for the Pittsburgh Steelers, you have to be a playmaker. And I think that's something that I take on what's great pride and trying to bring as much splash we like to call it, whether it's in tackles for Los getting Sachs, punching the ball out, tip and passes up in the air interceptions. Anything like that, I'm trying to be a tone setter for our defense..

"Go for four two on your twenty six ten twenty three in the third quarter to go you. Just don't do that do from the player perspective. Though i mean when you're upgrading in your executing it definitely gives you like this energy in this confidence put you have to go and do it three times the down towards down so yeah they score forty nine but they don't unless they go for it on fourth down but we've seen this over inches. Yesterday it was a couple of weeks ago against the chiefs. When when you're coach that unwavering belief that i'm going to go for my guys going to get it and if if it's not the right play call he'll make it right. You know like the third and five to keenan allen. No one else's open. No one else has keenan's not open perfectly covered saying there's no such thing as good defense for the perfect throw and i just feel like the chargers earn sending into that world where the chiefs word but to your point deal you said you said the whole thing staley right now is telling his guy. We longer going to preserve victory. Yup we're going honestly like there's part of me that sits and thinks well eventually but can feel that way. You know what. I'm saying. Because who's gonna catch him. Maybe because of what they're doing i feel that they're going to be so aggressive for downs and he's going to constantly convert. I don't feel that the competitors buffalo kansas city cleveland baltimore. Those are incredible offenses. He has to do that to keep up with those offenses and you said earlier. We'll find out more about baltimore tonight on monday night football. They're going up against the cold. So you know we. We feel like at least could be a game where their own match.

Don't feel dotson the unknown holy mackerel a second consecutive drive ins in an interception in a rough night but the thrown into the end zone emmanuel sanders touchdown bills four takeaways tonight for the buffalo bills. We don't lucille ball games like that especially at home this one. You're going to remember welcome to. Nfl live presented by windows. Eleven monday night. Football coming your way with the ravens and the colts. We'll get to that later. As we'll have a live report in just moments but jon allen finally did a guy he beat the chiefs more and bills chiefs coming soon. Plus the reason some people feel better about the bengals then the packers. After yesterday meantime. Marcus fears dinner. Lot older. adam. Schefter will be with you shortly. Let's roll with some sunday standouts for week five and it's coming to a close tonight then you start. I son is saying his. Tom brady this forty four year. Old went thirty one of forty yesterday for four hundred eleven yards and five touchdowns. Now that's not actually the thing that impresses you the most he made four throws while getting hit by other people in his chest. We'll feed off balance platform. That are not notorious the his game. He was spectacular. And we're kind of seeing a little different version of a guy making those throws under duress. He was spectacular. So it was a big win for the pittsburgh steelers in a big day for first round running back. Najji harris like the game. We were waiting for one hundred. Twenty two yards on the ground breaking tackles but we're really jumped out to me and this is a credit entire thing was how good the run blocking was which was something we are really waiting for into shared. Najji has been waiting for it and really gives you some hope for the future for an offense that looked pretty depressing so bar. Yeah they say you don't need run game show hell listen today go man. I know just a herbert is the tolkien and the toll. But this running back has been so impressive to me in between the tackles the physicality and i think people look at author nicholas stature and they don't think of him as a guy that can get in between it's out goes but he hasn't physical punishment runs the job back to sunday night. The bills beat the chiefs. Thirty eight to twenty and josh allen. Second game this season with two hundred and fifty past yards and rushing yards on fire but other side of. What's going on the chiefs. through week. Five the chiefs are tied with the jaguars for the most turnovers in the nfl have allowed the most points per game. And second most yards per. Game taylor quarterbacks last night right with josh allen shining patrick mahomes struggling something that didn't really expect impact. How an averaged over twelve yards. Pass tim the best mark of a game in his career. On the other side mahomes averaging just five yours per attempt his lowest average in a game of his career. Here's what mahomes had to say after the loss it starts with me. I mean i think the three of them were on me interceptions and then the the fumble at the end of the game and so i have to correct. That is to be better. Something that i've i've not usually done in my career but after we evaluate where i'm at what decisions i'm making. I've been kind of a crazier player. As far as scrambling and making throws but in my career. I've never been so went to a lot of interceptions And so i kind of have to look at it. Now go back and reevaluate what i'm doing and try to cut it out so much maturity from him and then you heard him say there. He's going to reevaluate himself. But what stood out to you about the difference. We saw in both his performance but also in the bills. Yeah i'd say for patrick. Watch the game and then we watch the game and it looks like a quarterback that's trying to score twenty one points every play because he knows his defense is really bad and you can see like the pressure that he feels. If i got to try and go be perfect. There were some completions out there. And you're like why before senate there. Why four senate there. You haven't done that all year. And so that's the thing for me. It's like he the pressure to try and score so many points because he knows he's got to score forty to have a chance now. The bills defense. They played in that too hot show. We heard it all night of too high too high. And i want people to understand. It's not like hugh high and there's there's easy completions they're also doing a great job of keeping in front. You know making sure that he was never able to break the pocket. But look at the mirroring of the defensive lyon. Marcus you know that and then the sticky coverage but the two high zone wasn't just hey dropped back in zone. It's really like a too high temperatures but we're then imagine towards match or catch you know there. I said there wasn't a lot of space between the receivers and the bills defenders and so while it is zone it wasn't like there were a ton of easy completions and that's the thing that the bills did a nice job defensively. They weren't going to expose themselves to attorney man but they're also going to give a lot of easy stuff to the chiefs and patrick completions. I'm so glad you said that. Because i felt like. I don't wanna say the narrative but there was a bit of a storyline coming on to the last slide. Oh boy in the chiefs play too high to sit back and first of all that playbook has been out there for two years now. You seen defenses. Take that approach towards trying to stop the chiefs but the way the bills did it struck out stuck out to me for a number of reasons one of which was a sticky coverage especially on third down. They were playing a ton of man. And you saw from the broadcasting. Patrick mahomes running around. What you didn't see was that nobody was open. The quarterbacks in safeties were all over them in their pockets And then of course front as you mentioned you could sit back but you gotta be able to either get home with the format rush or set the edge spectacular job upfront. I was really impressed. By not only the rookie pass. Rushers gregory russo. Of course had the big play also. Boogie bash him. But the ageless. Jerry hughes continues to show up and i just want to say this coming into this game. I wasn't skeptical about the bills defense. But i thought the competition was relevant and mini question. Okay is this really an elite unit. I don't question that anymore. I think this is one of the best defense in the nfl. And listen the both. Y'all talk about this. Obviously it is true in validity to the way people have discovered how we wanna play the chiefs but the chiefs have not rediscovered themselves. Think about the conversation. We had with the buffalo bills last year. Y'all know i was screaming. They need to give zach moss involved to get this run because you have to have answer. Why why are we so on the cowboys. However you wanna play. We can play that way and i think the chiesa lacking in that area when it comes to to your point running them out of that to also have an ability to calm. Patrick mahomes down from trying to too much right. We we become so enamored with his his magnificent play in these than in his career. But why the reason i say. Read the roll buffalo wild steph for three year right. The charges watched that for three years. You're division washington for three years. How long did you think that these teams go. Stay idle. Allow you to continue and continue and then when you look at this defect. It's not enough when you're turning football last in turnovers last in points per game with their opponents. So you give me josh allen. Right steph on demand will sanders. You have no shot right. Will you turn the football. I want to touch on something that you kind of hit on. When you're playing teams are playing the chiefs in that. Too high defense right. They need to realize the only thing that they can do now. I'm not talking when they're playing the eagles in all due respect when you're playing teams that are legit on defense. You gotta run them out of it. And that's the kind of thing that you said is you got to. I would love to see the chiefs next time. Poker tight ends on the field patrick under center and go you know because you talk. The bills have kind of changed the way that they play absolutely versus teams and feels like the chiefs. Haven't done that yet. You kinda run teams out of it and then you know when we're talking about the bills defense. I will say the thing that helps them play that shell defense. They're giving up three point seven yards per carry when they play zone defense their front four. You know it's easy to stop the run. I think that's something that the chiefs have really got to be critical about when it comes to themselves. What do you mean. run them out of it. Though you got you got you to run the.

"Of criticism For what the program is turned into. He was that for for yukon legitimately year for a while. He made pretty decent chicken salad out of chicken. Shit up there. You know the for particularly the first twelve years He built that program led them from one aa to one. A they are earned. Five bowl berths the only bowl verse in the history of the program that fiesta bowl appearance. That we've mentioned so you know i i guess ready edsel did about. He tapped out by did about as good as you can do it that program and then he went to maryland did pretty mediocre there. Alex kirschner you can check us on that to see if the ready edsel media the high compliment. I think yeah right. And so then he comes back for this and they win six games in four years Teams right and would also own to start before getting fired. A couple of weeks ago Now that he was going to retire at the end of the like retiring. Now right right. Right i wouldn't you know card his car into the office if it just didn't work anymore or something. That's how he found out but i should. Should we give uconn and eat slack for the fact that they Well hugely important context here is that they're trying to be independent now. They went to the big east for basketball reasons which doesn't have football. And so now i mean just like being a really bad team as a independent in division one football just a recipe for death like there's no way around it and so that's that's a huge problem for them but they actually opted out of football last season. Play to opt out about. Should we actually. This is like an enormous pivot. The conversation should we give them credit for that and not be saying. Oh they're so bad. Holiday suck didn't play at all last year because of kobe. Now i think they tried to play off last year. Like oh. we're doing this for the health and safety. When actually they like most of their schedule got cancelled and so they were. I think talking a little bit more high minded about it than Than they actually were but for saying they're the worst team in the history of college football. Probably something there's some of that has to do with the fact that they just didn't play it all last year. Good matters harder to recruit matt brown who writes the extra points. Newsletter noted that you can has signed a tv deal with the cbs sports network. Which could be helpful. Even if it's not for much money rattled indicator that the cbs sports network one exist very much longer. Half their sales for uconn. Football brothers better schools which does make people wanna watch. If they win five games they can make a bowl is if making balls matters so that says that if all of these things happen and the team has a chance to be competitive at the very least and they can try to sell more tickets than their sustainable at the fbi is going to be good. It means they're going to be sustainable. But you know with all of the reorganization. that's inevitable in the next five to ten years in college sports. Who knows and maybe connecticut's thought is that we need to stay viable at this level. So that when the final reorganization comes. We can at least be in the conversation for joining with other bigger schools. I mean rutgers big ten you now like there are paths here for schools. A lot changes quickly. That's true i've been in the last few years that yukon found itself in the situation with the big east fell apart and became basically a basketball conference. That's what really hurt them. And in fact there was a piece in the athletic from a few years ago that mentioned they were the biggest loser of realignment in college football in the last few years because of that essentially they lost conference. Nobody else wanted them so they got caught up in some bad numbers. I think a lot of it is bad luck but also at the end of the day like nobody is excited to see fucking uconn football even yukon foot fans all right. Here's some random yukon facts. That i learned that i'll never be able to deploy at any other point in my life and so i need to just dump them all out on you now. So can football mount rushmore. You gotta have probably skip holtz randy. Edsall dan orlovsky and donald brown donald brown jordan todman. Okay we can debate. We can debate that for years. I mean in the in the bars and stores at what's his name by the guy hernandez didn't his dad play for uconn as a kid by the way his dad dad. Yeah there you go The most embarrassing thing tap into uconn football even more embarrassing than this. Season's team is the civil conflict trophy which i think we've talked about on this program before but that was it went edsall. Paul paschal oni. Bob decaux and then back to edsall deco era when he tried to create a rivalry game with ucf central florida. And he made this this trophy and there is a conflict because georgia leary was the head coach at ucf at the time and he was like. They're actually not our rivals. When you go ten states away. I think it's hard and then bob yakult released a statement saying they don't get to say whether they are rival learn. Not which is maybe the most embarrassing thing and college football coaches ever said but then it got even more embarrassing. Because when scott frost was the coach at ucf yukon brought the civil conflict trophy down for a game ucf beat them and just ignored the trophy just like left it there tongue. It was really the sad. They should've just ended the program right there. You can't come back from that. I would just like to see that. Kind i mean. Why don't they just focus on umass. Just feel like they've got they're both bad. I think one hundred and twenty eighth ranked program according to the thing. I found confusing. And we'll need some clarity on this last year. The the umass coach wall bell. Do you guys remember this that. He said that the day that they cancelled the season was worse than when his parents died. And then they went on to actually reinstate the season and they lost all four games by a combined score of one hundred and sixty one to twelve. Wow so so. You're not the word going forward to the uconn. Umass game later this fall but somebody needs to step into that and not allow clemson to play uconn later this year. Because that just doesn't seem bishops. Sycamore i am gs. That shouldn't be allowed to happen..

"It's his own fancy analytics tool that he uses to better assess college football teams. After compiling the data connolly has determined that this year's yukon huskies which lost all four games. They've played by a combined score of forty nine to one eighty four could be the worst team in the history of the sport. No seriously if you can't keep up. This pace contantly tweeted sunday. They could rank fourteen thousand three hundred and eighty second of all time a couple of teams from erskine college in the mid nineteen twenty s on the bright side. There's nowhere for the huskies to go from here up. We'll get into how you got here in a minute. But first josh impact that you are is it wrong to root for yukon to maintain this restorick pace and should we feel sorry for the huskies. This has brought me probably too much joy suggested. Maybe i'm not as empathic as you're very kind assessment. Interest suggest joel. If we can revel in someone else's pain than now that doesn't sound right there's something about yukon that it feels appropriate to mock them and laugh at them because they really shouldn't be trying to play division one football and the history of them trying to play division one. Football is one of poor decisions. Hubris and the of I guess you know problems that schools can get themselves into when they think they need football and they think that it will make life better for the school and help their reputation and all that stuff and they moved to division one a in the ninety s the coach Ransall joel gonna tell us a bit more about an a minute. Kinda brought them to glory very briefly and then they've been chasing tech laurie. Ever since including by rehiring randy edsall which led them into this situation. we're in now so i'll have a little bit more say more detail about excuse but that's my bigger picture view stuff. And i think cautionary tale is the is exactly right josh. The aspirational aspect of yukon and football should not be overlooked right. This is a basketball school. This is a big east school. This is a school that like other eastern universities believed that it needed football in order to compete in order to be a player on the national stage in athletics. And it's been a disaster. I mean financially yukon is like one of the most cash poor athletic departments in f. b. s. football. They're going to need page. Bekker's i l deals to just they're going to. They're going to need her to a float them. All of that might be the way to go Generate a total of seventy nine million dollars in revenue in two thousand nineteen and almost half of that came from institutional support student fees. That's pathetic. I mean very little donor. Bay very small donor walker. Could give us like maybe maybe refurbished stadium. Yeah on they generated two point seven million dollars according to espn report from donors page. Bekker's stands to make that much and then i revenue. You know the funny thing is. We're talking about this and they weren't even really good it. Division one aa level by the time they'd started competing in division one. A in two thousand. They had won a conference title in the yankee conference in a decade. They've won ten games or more once in the history of the program. They've won ten games once and that was in one thousand nine hundred. Ninety eight during skip holtz's last season where they went ten and three in the second round of the one. Aa playoffs so It just. I think this is something that i've always been fascinated with. Even when i was buzzfeed. I wrote about new mexico. State and idaho right before. Idaho dropped back down to fcs. And i'm like what keeps you wanting to do this. You know to be this bad because even if you think it helps ease number nece hubris right. I guess they haven't all time. Winning percentage of forty seven percent the that puts out of the teams currently in f. b. s. Does one hundred thirty all time that makes them one hundred seven's that's just ahead of schools like oregon state iowa state. Kansas state claimed temple northwestern the bottom. Tanner like buffalo indiana. Unm wake forest. He makes so it's all the schools that are bad are always bad and but for the schools will have like one unprecedented run in the history of their program and then they think that they need to double down and that is always seems to be the problem. So you know yukon had that fool's gold of fiesta bowl berth. Back in two thousand ten where they lost four games in only wanna share the title in two of their losses which temple rutgers and so you were supposed to think that that's a big time football program but actually they just gotten lucky in a few games won a few close games and we're able to qualify for you know one of the bcs balls or whatever they call it but at the time but it's just it's just evidence that like teams never think about the history that they are. They think that there's always some bright future but for the most part in the history of football in especially in college the teams that are bad are tend to be always be. I don't think that's actually true. I think the key. There's a bunch of counterarguments that could make to that I i don't think that any of these arguments suggested yukon was right to do what they done. But what was florida state before body baton got there. What was miami before howard schnellenberger out there. What was kansas state before bill snyder. There you're you're talking about. You're talking about the eighty s. I mean you're talking about the seventies eighties by the time. The they decided. Joel i mean. There are examples of schools investing in capitalizing on football. The problem is that rutgers. What about okay. Let's rule if you have one coach in the history of your program that has made you good in florida. State may actually prove to with the exception of the jimbo fisher thing but like but for one generational coach most programs are what they are in. You'll see that you has not been chit chit like anything else. And i just. I think that's the same with florida state. S you see josh. it's about it's about. Money and football is a gigantic money. Loser at uconn. Thirteen million dollars in twenty nineteen athletics department deficit in spite of the women's and men's basketball teams of forty two million dollars. That's not unusual in college sports. They shouldn't be run necessarily as profit centers but still and there's always with schools like this the sort of this charity. Oh we're going to move to the big east. We're going to being an independent. We'll play more Cupcake money revenue road games and doesn't come. Fruition and at some point schools need to recognize some schools have recognized that they can't compete and that it's financially and academically imprudent to continue down road. And they drop back. You don't seem willing to do that. And i really don't know why well it's lose lose for them because they both take the massive financial head of having the team but don't get any sort of reputational credit because the team is so horrible But y'all i mean we. We mentioned the like litany of coaches who have taken moribund schools and programs and made them successful and yet sold for all that you want to critique kim and he deserves a huge amount of criticism For what the program is turned into. He was that for for yukon legitimately year for a while. He made pretty decent chicken salad out of chicken..

"I think you make a really strong argument and you might be right but i think what they would counter with is that yeah. The game is the game and it's the main thing and it actually doesn't matter of payments on that because people will just watch it to watch the game and so maybe there is an audience of a million people. Eight hundred thousand people who will tune in and that's extra viewers us extra ad revenue and extra. You know whatever. And that's what we're aiming for in bryan bryan curtis peace. He pointed out that announcers. Don't matter you're right. Shoul- nobody's tuning in watch particularly and i think this is evidence that announcers don't matter that espn slash abc. Have a monday night. Football booth of led by steve levy. I mean this is not howard cosell anymore. He quotes neal pilson of former. Cbs sports president in historic. Brian does saying that. There are only two announcers. Whoever moved the ratings needle john madden and gil clancy on boxing so this is experimental. I mean what i think is gonna happen here and i'm not sure what you guys think but i think that the the kink in the first in the first episode of this is that the production wasn't great. The mike's didn't always work right. They didn't know how to go in and out of commercial you didn't. They would be a lot of talking over each other. I can see peyton manning wanting this to look more professional like look more like a regular broadcast and finding a middle ground. Well there's no post like an athlete. Podcast like jj relics by. There's a guy who's not jj redick. Who helps do the interviews and stuff. And they decided at least from the beginning to just have paid in. Eli be there with no house to when russell wilson was on like russell wilson was kind of hard to hear and they didn't really know winded so that they could get better just on their own. This was a first thing but it may make sense for them to like bring in some third party facility. Conversation doesn't like things being polished and professional. I mean he's made his whole image off of that. So i could definitely see this and this would be a way for. Espn two sort of juice. The number so that they don't get just eight hundred thousand and even if it's cannibalizing you know audience from the main broadcast that serves to their. You know. it doesn't hurt them. It's a zero-sum game here. And i can see espn and wanting to have this. Look a little bit better so that it attracts viewers. And even if it's a few viewers that go away from the conventional.

"Here's here's a list of people they've had just in the course of our lifetime. Working into booth on the sideline trying to generate interest from people. That is sort of ancillary to the game oj. Simpson dan dear door boomer. Esiason joe ties tasman. Dan fouts dennis miller. Tony kornheiser booger mcfarland jason witten. They had limb swan in eric. Dickerson on the sideline i love your dickerson. Yeah like yeah i mean look i loved dickerson. Like he's a texan great but he was really bad on tv. But so this at this at the end of the day like i do think it's kinda cool that like you use the term narrowcasting that you can sort of select your viewing experience in some ways and i hope that that is always an option for people but i think at the end of the game isn't good then it really doesn't matter like the people are tuning for game not to hear people talk about a game. I disagree with you a little bit. I do think that people tune in to hear what people say about games. Otherwise people wouldn't watch stephen a smith and and wouldn't turn into these legs in casts. But this is my numbers. Josh i think kevin draper in his new york times story about this noted that fourteen and a half million people watched the normal monday night. Football telecast of the ravens raiders game and eight hundred thousand people. Watch the manning cast. That's like five percent of the audience but that's not what matters to espn. Espn has all of these outlets. They have streaming channels. They have multiple over the over cable. Channels it's the same with nickelodeon and cbs doing that. The telecasts aimed at kids last year. With slime you know blowing up all over the screen this is a way for networks to test and try as we as audiences break up for television to try to aggregate fans on different platforms and have a collective bigger number. I mean i think it's narrowcasting in one sense. I mean literally in terms of being so much smaller. And i think you're also selecting for the kind of people who talk about the game on twitter. Who just want to be having the different kind of experience but also it's like the opposite of a narrow cast in that. Yeah they're talking about The kind of xs knows but sometimes it's also they're not talking about football at all and i think it's in some ways a hedge against badge bad games where and i don't know if this will prove out but are you more likely to want to listen to ally and pay and charles barkley or louis riddick and steve levy and brian greasy during a blowout I think probably the former. And as far as the business side of this goes for the manning's You know espn and bin laden for years and other networks have been trying to woo him for years and this is a way for him to have some show that's controlled by his production company. Where it doesn't have to leave his house. It's fairly kush gig for that guy. And i think you know as far as espn is concerned. I i guess they just wanted to figure out any possible way to get him through the door and it is funny how we're just talking about. La like he's basically dare straight man if people really were that interested in the manning's peyton manning what are the ratings for peyton place. There were on espn. Have you ever watched that. You all like peyton manning so much following around on the internet and get his commentary on thing. That's espn plus the thing. That's designed to appeal to.

Romo's places joel but he is an incredibly valuable but again highly compensated announcer for cbs. I just i you know. I think we talk a lot about announcing in sports media in cut in coverage of these games is if it really matters. And i i know that maybe this is just a fundamental difference but never and i don't want to like you know extrapolate from my particular experience of the people i know or whatever but like not once in my life if i ever heard somebody say hey manda eagles into washington football team playing tonight and also we might get a chance to hear peyton manning. Tony romo like that. Just is not a thing that happens at the end of the day. The game is what matters. And i do i do admire. Espn for diversifying the broadcast and trying something different. You know trying to appeal to people in all sorts of ways. I think that that is the value of having these other channels. You could try different stuff. See what sticks. But i also think that it's sort of like it's testing for like the main event is going to be like. I think that if they could get peyton manning to be in the booth they would prefer to have him over there inserted in a warehouse in denver talking to his brother. I think at the end of the day. They want him on the main broadcast. Because that's where the audience is. People want to see the game and hear him talk about the game. I just you know. I'm sure it's cool. Have re lewis call in and they talk about with. Greg roman ate for breakfast once. But i just think that there's a limit to that and Well i mean..

So if this were to happen today given the resources that the star has now do you think you would have been able to dedicate the time and get the resources that you needed to do that. Reporting from indianapolis star. That's a difficult question to answer. Because i'm no longer there. But what i can say. Is that my colleagues who are still. There are incredible journalists in their passionate about doing this kind of work. And so i do think that the leadership there would believe in this project and still believe it was worth doing. I think something in going back and reading some accounts of their reporting and All it took. I think it's important might seem like getting into the nitty gritty for people that aren't in journalism but the fact that on this beat you found the story through sources that you had developed by being got a beat reporter is really crucial. And that's the thing that As resources become more limited in our field and especially in local media. That's the thing that could potentially be lost. Having people develop sources the way that you did. I think you see that in journalism as a whole right i mean think about how often you see one. Journalists story or investigation lead them into other stories or other investigations says incredibly common. And so we've been kind of circling this question the whole time. But i think a place to end as What do you think would provide a sense of closure For these women. That's clearly it. It still feels so far away. What do you think would would have to happen.

You've got to catch the snap. Obviously but there is an element of we know. We can't make any mistakes. We have to be so perfect. We have to be even better. We normally are because mahomes is on the other side that causes some of those. I would agree with that for the op. The opposition offense right look. We used to feel pressure as high powered offense that if that offense on the other side was playing well we had two matches so that gives you anxiety that is true but a planner giving you that.

"Vacillating a little bit right. I mean but adam you just laid out some of these quarterback competition situation especially with these. Young guys are really complicated right now. So the vacillation makes sense. I must have vaseline. Dan should kyle shanahan start trae lance week. One yes but i did not feel that way. In the first quarter of last night's game frustrated watching double clutch and miss high throws but then he got hot in his second quarter and then he settled in. I'm going this is the guy that looks like he's ready to go. Yeah he's getting. The guy who needs through thirteen. Three hundred eighteen passes in college is getting it and i also think the reality we talked about this as we've seen like five percent of what this offense is gonna look like. They're not doing any quarterback ron. We're not doing any zone so it's going to be easier on the run game in the past if you think that was being opaque about the starter he is being opaque about the flavor can words. I don't know what they pay me to do. You remember when the washington football team drafted. Rg three in college. Shannon was the offensive coordinator with his father. Mike shanahan and they went into new orleans in week. One thing is you can play and ran. Something unveiled something. See an orgy. Three wooden duck that here as well. That was just reduction. No this space age run game kyle. Shanahan is working on this off season since we're not seeing any of it and it changes everything. This offense not only doesn't add an element to trae lances run game and the rest of the run game. It makes the whole entire passing attack easy for him because he's gonna throw in a wide open due to the middle of the field breath. I'm getting so excited because she can. Simplify quarterback is in conflict the entire game and it's not like rg. Three is a good calm. But he's rg three plus he's going to be. Rg three plus cam newton. So it's not even going to be like just lake but it's the power run game that on. espn plus. That's why they went that direction. Because only trae lance could do certain things that other quarterbacks and people copying his offense for awhile and copy the offense trae lamp. And there's to be knows trae lance. But you're right. There's going to be close to take the high g too. I saw jimmy g. Throw the same interception. So i thought i'm going to get the lows jimmy highs that he can't give me. That trainer has the potential to the one thing. I would say though. It's a really tough division and you're accepting some extreme lows that could lose you games in a tough division. You think they're okay with every defensive coordinator wants to play jimmy. Jean guarantee you every defensive coordinator wants to museum not trailing many of the same issues that we talked about chicago just take. It applies san francisco. It's the same storylines.

"Trying to find about women announcing Monday football. We'RE T- The year two thousand and there hasn't been at woman and the by play announcer on Monday night. Let alone a color commentator. We don't want to keep going and run out of seasons than it would be game over. That's probably a good call since there was one in nineteen eighty seven and you totally missed. We didn't miss it and that's only partially true. Gail Sierras became the first female. Nfl play by play announcer on December twenty seventh nineteen eighty seven. But that was a Sunday edition to Monday night. Football and not actually a Monday. Night game sprayed. How did you know that guilt older? That's right I did. Jesus where did you come from? The girl suggested I come along for fun. I told them that it may not be as much fun as they think. Yeah we gave up. Hope finding any females. When we got to Dennis Miller. He was rough to watch. Jackie was now. There were a couple of times. I thought well maybe but it turns out Lynn. Swann and Frank Tarkenton. Were both men seriously now to be fair. There have been women sideline reporters Lesley Visser and Melissa Stark. Lisa Guerrero Michele to- foyer Susie all but one was prior to two thousand. You'll have to wait thirty years. After me. Have another play by play. Female announcer bath. Mullins will announce a game in two thousand seventeen which will be the first Monday night. Football game ever done by a woman on Monday nights. I only one game. She still has her regular job as college. Football announcer and it was just a fillon assignment while the main play by play announcer was on vacation. So as you're telling me is the season starts in September and goes till January and these announcers still need vacations cruises. Besides I think you're missing the point. Sabrina there hasn't been a fulltime female. Play by play announcer ever in the history of Monday night football. That's really Kinda sad yes? It is almost decided as how people react to having female commentator. They think you need to have played in order to understand the game. But that's not the case. Dennis Miller never played and he was awful. Not really helping your case scale but I know what you mean. It's kind of like how men comment on female reproductive right but have never been a female. I don't think that's exactly what she was going for. Either but since Laura's glaring at me I might be wrong as someone who knows good call. Good Call Chris. You're definitely wrong. You know what else decide my time here with you as a so unless you have any more questions your wire penguins blue. What's Blue Who invented cheese was craft?

Everyone Nice meeting Ou- by well now that she's gone. I have a concern but I didn't WanNa make her feel bad. Why would ABC hire a morning cartoon over a woman? Are you talking about? There are no cartoon announcers in the lineup. Not as a play by play announcer. That was mainly Frank Gifford michaels but the color commentator I mean isn't that why they're called colored commentators because they're drawn and then colored like cartoon. Wait. What did she say Sabrina? No the term color refers to levity and insight provided by a secondary announcer a sports color commentator customarily works alongside the play by play broadcaster uses of the word. Colored can relate to vividness of expression. Well when did you get that I can? I take a lot of buzzfeed quiz. Can we talk to a color commentator? I'd like their opinion about us. I wouldn't mind talking to Oj Simpson. But that's for other reasons. I've questions about the glove. I could bring in Alex Karras and have him do Mongo from blazing saddles. Yeah we'll all.

"Courtney we covered the Viking side of this and you are. ESPN'S NFL nation reporter for the Vikings. So we talked about cousins failures and Monday night football when we played a little blame pie. Let's talk about the packers. Though they win twenty three ten on Monday night football last night they are now in position potentially for a first round by their twelve. Win Packer. Team Courtney. That does not have Aaron Rodgers playing like Superman he's not the VP conversation. He's not going. To throw fifty touchdown touchdown passes. There's probably isn't one of his five or six best seasons. Can the packers win the super bowl without Aaron Rodgers. Being EH stereotypical prototypical top. Five all time quarterback Aaron Rodgers. If they're not playing on wild card weekend than yes. I think that that they are capable of doing that. And I know that will eventually talk. NFC playoff picture. But if you're looking at the top three teams in the NFC right now that could potentially vie for Super Bowl. It looks like the rational thought would be San Francisco the saints and then the packers because of the quarterback play with those latter or two teams like San Francisco. Its own enigma right now and certainly a team that's built around a really good defense ineffective offense that hasn't had Jimmy Garoppolo do you too much. But as we know whatever happens with drew brees Aaron Rodgers in the regular season ups or downs injuries. Whatever have might be? You still want those two guys leading your team in January. I think that there's no. There's no way around that and yeah. Rogers had some career. Worst this season last night. Be At thirty six point eight total. QBR and that's his seventh sub forty performance of the season. This offense is different though. I mean this is not the offense of the twenty ten twenty eleven packers seasons the twenty ten when they go and win the Super Bowl. Twenty eleven when they're eleven and five and then they lose their first playoff game. This is a offense and spreading off of Aaron Jones in the run game and even last night they decided they were going to stick to their guns and stick to their plan to establish the Ron and it took until later in the second half to do that and they didn't they trailed until two. Oh three left on the clock in the third quarter but they finally broke through with that run game. And that's been the story for this team in a handful of ugly ugly wins the season. And I think that's maybe why we're not talking about the packers. The way we we are talking about the top two seeds or at least what were the top two seeds going into week. Sixteen and the saints are in a forty niners in the saints. But they're very very capable as they've shown they are very balanced which they might not have been in previous years. Because this is the first time that Rogers had as dynamic of a run game as he has in two thousand nineteen. Sure I mean I could go back to the days of on Green in Green Bay. And but when they won super bowls with Brett Farve and went to super bowls they ran and the ball really effectively and if they're at home in cold weather I think that's going to be necessary for them to do. It almost reminds me courtney of John Elway way late in his career Peyton manning late in his career. They won super bowls on teams. Where you could argue yes? They could manage the game and not make big mistakes but but they weren't in the prime of their careers. They weren't winning the Super Bowl throw in five. Td's John Elway won a super bowl in which he wasn't even the MVP and Soda Peyton Manning. Tom Brady won the super bowl last year and his team. Only scored thirteen points. So I'm wondering if rodgers now is on the downside of his career but that doesn't mean he can't still win because this might be the best packer defense courtney that he is ever had in his days in Green Bay. I know Clay Matthews was great. I I know Charles Woodson was great but I'm saying one to eleven on the defense how much you can rely on. It might be the best and also it could be one of the best running games that he's ever had and they win in a big game on Monday night football on the road last night where he has a sub forty. QBR Aaron Rodgers after the game. Talk to our Lisa saulters and he addressed the key completely unlocking all of Green Bay's offensive weapons. Aerodynamic Courtney Cronin for Steven Steven A. Smith Show. ESPN RADIO ESPN APP. We Are Presented by progressive progressive. Insurance would you rather have rogers or drew brees in a big game this January. It's tough I mean I feel like it's a toss up would move. He's got Michael. Thomas Though drew brees that is I think that the one thing that's going to hold Aaron Rodgers back here is the fact that as you mentioned all of those big names on defense defense in free agency. They get Preston. Smith they'd get the Daria Smith Adrian. ammos they rebuild this unit. That desperately needed it. But the caveat out of that was that they didn't have the finance the finances to get him some weapons offensively. I mean the fact that that devante Adams has been the guy this season last season and truly the only big threaten their passing Game Marquez vol scant Ling J. Kuro nobody knew who allen in Lazard was until that Detroit game in week six drama Alison hasn't been has had very up and down season. I mean that's the thing that I think could fail. Aaron Rodgers down distract when we talk about Roger's career though I mean no one knew Jordy Nelson was until Aaron Rodgers made him. Didn't Aaron Kinda. Make Randall COBB and sure Donald. The driver was a great player for multiple quarterbacks and he's had far more talented teams than he's had in two thousand nine hundred and I think that's the argument here is like hey we look at this crop of talent that he has an offense. They've won gamed in ugly fashion and they've been able to rely on their defense to win a number of those games and really it's Kinda bend don't break can they do. Is that in the postseason. Though if they have to go on the road and play New Orleans or play in San Francisco where they lost on that Sunday night game in the hospital bill. It'll really bad and so I mean. Can they do that again like I mean. That's the question here. Aaron Rodgers like he's going to continue to make those front of the pylon throws like he made Williams in in Kansas City. That just kind of make you shake your head like how physically possible. But that's not the type of offense that you see regularly in Green Bay in the transition that they're undergoing here in the first year under Matt Leflore. We knew this was going to kind of have some growing pains and some bumps and bruises along the way. But honestly I feel like they've been able to mitigate mitigate that where it hasn't been as glaring I mean yes the some of their wins especially last night have not been very pretty but they're still at twelve win team right now in fifteen fifteen games. That is remarkably impressive when they've had all of this change from the Defensive Side to the coaching staff and everything around Aaron Rodgers has been kind of in flocks flocks this past season. Two Courtney. I don't care the margin of victory over the Redskins and a lot that was made about that with this packers season. I I wouldn't worry too much about it. You know I think ultimately the Patriots have shown that you just have to win and that you stack winds on top of each other and then you know oh you have a chance to have a bye and home games in the playoffs. I think two things here with them. I think one is how is Rogers going to handle a playoff spot where his is team is behind and he has to lead them back. I'm not sure that he has a real signature comeback win. We all remember that Wild Arizona game remember but ended up losing in overtime. So I'm not sure that he has that signature playoff win. Does he still have the fourth quarter drive on the road in San Francisco or New Orleans in them. That's number one. You brought up the second thing which is having a rookie coach. You know we all agree. Kyle Shanahan may be the coach of the year in the. NFL has become one of the best. And Sean Sean. Payton is a super bowl level coach. How will Matla Fluor handle the postseason and big games potentially on the road or at at home? Yes I think you can trust Rogers. He's a super bowl quarterback but how will matlock floor handle that spot. It's going to be one of the fascinating subplots of the NFC postseason recent speaking of which all the teams are set for the NFC in the playoffs but seating is still at stake. We break it all down and talk about it next. It's the Stephen a Smith Michelle..
