"The back drive time here on axis a hundred we spent a lot of yesterday talking about Air Force relieving it they pull Povich's of his duties as head coach of the men's basketball team but we had a shorter show so when you get bring in other perspectives and so I wanted to do so today and who better to have on the brain breaking into the guys that who joins me now brands are hypothetical but I'll ask it anyway Air Force hangs on to their lead against San Diego state we having this conversation I think so okay well we'll only minimal some opponents in the Senate I think this and I think we can systems made early January honestly if not if not then certainly when they lost in the all you know on senior night our senior day Rockwell snow because of the point that we're not losing record he didn't you know they didn't have the season they wanted in conference play wanted to know the most opportune sort of conference championships at the new inventions I know you do due diligence as a reporter but were you surprised that Dave was as open with you about all of this yeah I always want their name because other programs and so I was just in the halls and global dairy was found in a winter time just knowing him and our relationship I wasn't surprised at all that I got to talk with them I just didn't expect to actually see him face to face so I was very happy to give him the moment he was once a top I was not at all surprised how open he was and he's just a genuine person he's almost double so you have to win that's a lot since he gets frustrated at times though he never he never changes will you continue to smoke you know any good decent person does so he he was very forthcoming with things and you know we had a real real what kind of a why did he give off was it anger sadness relief I mean where where would you how would you describe the the way that Dave was kind of acting I guess when you talk to one a lot of things not not anger all yeah also we seem clearly I think he I think he and his wife both knew this was coming they're obviously were some converses with administration of peace and then we stay compliant that led them to believe the system name up alongside it I don't think the timing you know I'd spoken to him right exchanged messages yesterday morning with them just to kind of get in close going on tomorrow at that point what's going to happen so at least when so I think the timing was a little bit of a surprise but I think he understands it's been three years he had one winning season and that was the first year so he's already on the wall so I don't think he was at all again surprised or angry he was a course disappointing because this woman was a job and I think there was some reason there this is a really taxing job you just you know it doesn't matter who you're playing a mountain west you're you're facing an uphill battle all home on the road when he was he was fighting that battle twenty you know three research studies years including games everything else and so I think it kind of dawned on him that that's behind them and I think it was a little bit of respect bring bring him in my gas can there be like a standardized level of expectation with this program and I think we all agree that especially this season they fell short and obviously Nathan pine made that very clear in his statement that this year was supposed to be better than a god turned out by you could argue that the talent disparity and all the you know hurdles now hurdles but it you know all all the different things that variables that go into recruiting at the Air Force Academy you could argue that basketball reads the widest disparity because you can't have the juco transfers you can have in in one or two players can make so much of a difference on a basketball team is there a level of expectation that does this program should have on a year in year out basis I mean you have to have explosives lost most of a lot of money on a trip with right for no reason but what those expectations should be I don't know I mean I I think the program is in pretty good shape I can you won't typically speaking because I think there's just some of the locals to hop to consumers and some of those you can only learn through experience you can only learn when you're recruiting guys who eventually you're going to be the guys that will leave a comment on who will stay and then you've got a kind of tweak within that okay who can play in the system who can win games for me I think it's a really long process and one mistake set you back years because you can't fix it and so I don't know but I agree with the move I certainly understand that but you know you have a guy who's keeping them in positions where they can still completely every year the PWC statement I'll be they beat several those teams and always position themselves to do a little bit more and they just haven't tried white cross over but I think they're closer than they will be in a few years with a new coach because I think the new coach is going to make some of the same sex show back being inside you know what is the expectation that he can you want to place on the roster each year because I think the roster is going to take some hits respond to believing it was an academic reservations you know you're not just going to have a set you gonna know what you're going to get every year until you get that team together well then you kind of assessments okay how's the constant you know strategically with this group based on the county has because I think that the talent level right now I think there was disappointment because he didn't beat Wyoming didn't be killed out to be a San Jose state but I think in the future if you're not careful they might not have a challenge where you're supposed to keep my own some of those states so it's a really sad situation right now I don't know right how is the world the talent level could really take a dip and then you're going to be really takes myself I don't so how do you set up the case and then so I think it's got to be a sliding scale based on what the roster looks like and how the coach is doing from year to year based on keeping those guys and getting the right as in the program who is there's some thing besides salary for the next head coach that Neath implying can do to make this a more attractive spot is the is the athletic department doing everything it can to make Air Force basketball as successful as they can be I mean the biggest thing they could do honestly is incentivized to recruit about student loans one time they made a mandatory recall that place okay that's simply the state it was a tremendous environment and hopefully one of the best games of the year I don't know about the program we've got to get some kind of ceremony they obviously have the power to do with the cadets but we wish you can't make them go to every game but you can certainly you know started finding squadrons or do something to get him down there I think that would be since that beyond that I don't know I don't know what they really need and talk we you know he was he toured the facilities I need her to water pipeline breaking and things like that those are some little chartering planes things like that which I will I don't think you're forced me to do I don't think you're going to get her to not include based on how you're traveling to road games or you know some of the infrastructure of the facility I just think it's I think you just have to get the right you have to have a coach who knows better because the right guys and then do something with them and have a plan with the system and I think the system needs to be defensively based because I just don't think you're going to keep up with people often simply for the long haul I think you have to have the right kind of ground or guys who just one quick defense and can score when they need to let you know in terms of you know that magic thing they can do a money they controlled a problem it just don't think that's there with their first what do you think will turn out to be the more important decision made by Nate pine however long he stays here in Carlsberg's keeping Troy Calhoun or whoever he hired for this job I thank you for coming I think you know football is the driver for athletic departments that's no secret in response to her Christmas present opponent coach knows what he's doing and how to consistently win will be used to rebound when he doesn't win and I think I think you've got to have the ball right I think that Hosty top quality but I certainly think we can go a long ways toward helping the program and just helping you know the old people US forces basketball games are fun to go to the football games or a day you know you got to go early you gotta see what sorry traffic on the way back was basketball can just be an evening well the total phone bones and want to go to the doctors want people you talk to me just some just more involved in enforcement so I think there's a huge opportunity here but you're going to compare the two football has to be number one just because it brings the eyeballs it brings sheets it is the drivers that system will consult on sports if you had to guess or had to bat shows Scott or the field for this job just got home heard anything from Joe Scott every conversation I've had including some people who have you know been close enough to make them finds inner circle to at least know that some stresses moment everything points out direction so we'll see you know there might be some younger system out there that are going on in but I think often Joe Scott just given his his background you know he he seems to be the right fit but now maybe someone else to do it there's not that many guys with Air Force ties to or you can say okay you know he was in the system here he's had success napping can take over that guy just doesn't exist as far as I know so I think if you can go back to somebody who does something pretty substantial here when he's available and he wants it he's still only fifty four years old he's not that old you know he could still have a solid decade plus years so I think if you can make that move back and forth within the room for those of us and we know what kind of community we live in there are people that don't even remember the Jeff Reynolds era although that was who I guess quite forgettable I suppose but you have a new people coming in all the time I'm why did Joe Scott do either outside of results I mean what was it is Joe Scott a lot different than day Popo overage in terms of his personality what did he do so well here to have success that bringing him back would it would be the best idea of any for anything pine I mean the the obvious thing is he didn't want the Princeton offense he had been at first Princeton was insistent about nine years before he came here so that was the biggest obvious thing that you should conversations I've had with people who are around them he brought in a different kind of athlete and he installed a different kind of mindset you know I don't think he was always the most popular because players and I think a lot of coaches whose stress different from not because those coaches are hard and I think he tended to get the kind of guy we somebody explained it to me he got the dog when nobody's open he might know about you guys might albums like he did they're just not completely alert looks there was a certain edge to them and I think that you know obviously the head coach kind of such a personality everything trickles down from him and I think I think just got a little bit of an edge to him and I think his teams play that one and I think people around you will respond to that so they can go back to the local which is a phenomenal human being and he brings in big guys I don't know that these teams always have that edge to them I met you matters the most is in close games and when he would need something on the offense isn't going you kind of need to have those competitors who I just want to win at all costs and I don't think we always have those guys and I think maybe that would be something I think that's what Joe Scott brought to the program with guys like Jacob Burji Nick Welsh region cool and I think you can go back and start finding those academy type guys with this will start again I think that sometimes can't login you can do kind of consistently if you can continually get those guys in the program definitely I check out brands conversation with Dave Filipovic J. it speaks to the kind of relationship that you and and Dave have brand that he would be that open with you and thoroughly enjoyed reading that and then of course as this story unfolds prince going to be the place to go for information regarding this search that anything pine is about to embark on brand appreciate the time and the insight eight percent thank you yeah bring bring amenities at joining us here on drive time sports I felt like you is this.

"Santa Barbara county. It also may lead the pack in complaints about the fumes generated from marijuana growing. Those upturn noses have been mobilizing in recent months to stop the growth in growing. Joining us to talk about this is Nick Welch executive editor for the Santa Barbara independent Hynek. Hey, how are you? I'm great. Thanks. Okay. Well, first of all, why are there so many cannabis grow licenses in Santa Barbara county? Why does it lead the state in the numbers? This is great climate going PR and cannabis apparently really likes to follow the Pinot, this sort of the natural terrain and climate is reason, number one, but reasons number two is we had a huge number of pre existing medicinal closer relations. Going on in Santa Barbara county for the medicinal cannabis use. And so when the law changed to allow recreational voters approved pop sixty four all the pre existing operations into so clogs Ray market for poisoning. Ready to go a whole lot of the licenses that we hear about here in Santa Barbara where essentially thirty one percent of the licenses in the state of California are from Santa Barbara county. We have one percent of the population. Have two percent of the land mass, so it's just ridiculous disproportionate to some sense of statistical homogeneity. So basically a third of all of them are in Santa Barbara county. You're saying and basically from what I understand. It's because the county allowed these medical marijuana growers to be grandfathered into this new recreational with, with Neri any oversight like they just had to sign a one page affidavit. So you can easily lie about that. So, yeah, I it was essentially an honor system, and you just signed was really maybe two paragraphs and just I've been here. I've been doing it. And to county decided Rideau have the resources to track down if they were they weren't. So we're just going to forward, these affidavits onto the state as our housekeeping approval. When the state decided whether to accept license applications for consideration. Okay. So they did that. And then, so now they're all these growing operations. Right. Right. And the chief complaint is that all of this marijuana just. Well, the odor is overwhelming with odor is, is the biggest most obvious complaint. There is it's not the only way but in certain parts of Santa Barbara county in southern tip. We have a city happen to Rio, which is may vary by the see now it's Mayberry, by the weeds and you. You had all these that's. Greenhouse, rowers set up shop there in the sixties, and as, as a cut flower industry got wiped out by international trade. These greenhouse growers may of whom are pretty hardcore Republicans, you know, with Ronald Reagan pictures up in their room was, you know, shaking hands decided that the best path to salvation in evolution laying cannabis, and so they have really led the charge in terms of greenhouse production and greenhouses. You get your show so you're in constant flowering cycle. It's not like you know what your twice a year if constantly flower events is to top of the roof off the heat? The heat goes out, and depending on where you are what time it really stinks. And depending. Like we'd know here's a Joe people actually thought this was a serious conspiracy theory for a while. That there was so much pot growing cannabis growers were planting dead skunks on the side of the road said people could say, oh, there's a, that's what you're smiling. You're not the week. There's Santa Barbara high school as Santa Barbara area, high school is located on the main drag it has the most greenhouses highway one ninety two and fell while there it was the teachers would come early in the morning day classrooms. It was very intense. I spoke to a woman who lives very near their join us busy. Oh, and she was, you know, it makes her eyes burn. It keeps her headaches. She had to have 'em are is her grandkids, who have asthma won't come over. And visit so some people playing is really, really intrusive. People say it's a nuisance. I is a bother or I notice it. It really doesn't so me off my, my strike. Meanwhile, you have all these wineries in the area, and I think they're getting a little mapped that might be turning.

"This is press play. I'm Madeline brand. We'll take a guess, at which California county has the highest intended number of cannabis cultivation permits. It is not Humboldt county. It's Santa Barbara county. It also may lead the pack in complaints about the fumes generated from marijuana growing. Those upturn noses have been mobilizing in recent months to stop the growth in growing. Joining us to talk about this is Nick Welch executive editor for the Santa Barbara independent Hynek. Hey, how are you? I'm great. Thanks. Okay. Well, first of all, why are there so many cannabis grow licenses in Santa Barbara county? Why does it lead the state in the numbers? This is great climate throwing PR and cannabis apparently really likes to follow the piano, sort of the natural terrain and climate is reason number one. But reason number two is we had a huge number of pre existing medicinal cultivate going on in Santa Barbara. Saudi for medicinal cannabis use. And so when the law changed to allow recreational when the voters approved pop sixty four all these pre-existing operations into so far gray market, Ripois and ready to go, a whole lot of the licenses that we hear about here in Santa Barbara where essentially thirty one percent of the licenses and the state of California are from Santa Barbara county.

We have a city happen to rea-, which is may vary by the sea, now it's Mayberry, by the weeds, and you had all these. Greenhouse growers set up shop there in the sixties, and as, as a cut flower industry got wiped out by international trade. These greenhouse rowers may of whom pretty hardcore Republicans, you know, with Ronald Reagan pictures up there their room was, you know, shaking hands decided that the best pass to salvation and evolution laying cannabis. And so they have really led the charge in terms of greenhouse production and greenhouses, you get your show. So you're in constant flowering cycle. It's not like once or twice a year. If constantly flour and events has to top of the roof off the heat. The heat goes out, and depending on where you are what time it really sinks, and depending smelling like weed. No, here's a Joe people actually thought this was a serious conspiracy theory for a while. That there was so much pot growing. That's cannabis growers were planting dead skunks on the side of the road. So people could say, oh, there's that's what you're smelling. The weed, there's Santa Barbara high school Santa Barbara area, high school is located on the main drag it has the most greenhouses highway one ninety two and full while there it was the teachers would come in early in the morning day platforms. It was very intense. I spoke to a woman who lives, very near their Jonas, busy, though. And she was telling me, you know, it makes her eyes burn. It gives a headache, she had to have 'em is her grandkids who have asthma won't come over. And visit so some people claim is really, really intrusive. Other people say it's a nuisance. I or a bother, or I knows it, it really doesn't throw me off my, my strike. Meanwhile, you have all these wineries in the area, and I think. They're getting a little mapped that Yoder might be turning off some visitors like people don't wanna come visit and taste their wines. And by their ones, it's hard to enjoy a glass of wine. If you're being buffeted by heavy duty odors of plant in full flower, now, a little critical, I mean, let's be honest. If one buzz versus the next, yeah, it's supposed voice. And a lot of people have have pointed this out that, hey, when the wine industry post moved here about twenty years ago, they were the pillagers and destroyers of the environment, and they were coming in and clear heading the oath, and there were ballot initiative saves ios his wine industry. Why destroy all the wine industry has figured out how to accommodate as heirs now the ones who are having the furniture of rearranged? I will say, though, that there is sort of overstated, but amongst some of the canvas rollers I've talked to. I have a high handed attitude or hey, you know, we're movie and real use pesticides like they do. And they go really acknowledge it say are disrupting people say are having people move over to make room for them. And I think that, that is part of the problem is a reality. I mean, if you've invested millions of dollars in, in terms of something that can be tasted into taste experiences being intruded on that makes a difference. He other thing here is the speculative pressure. This has on land prices rents, I spoke to a woman up in law, which is very poor town, the north of the county. She ran a children's Jim place and a canvas operation came in and bought the property that she had been renting. She wasn't allowed even to apply. They weren't even willing to consider her. And the rent says HR after she left about ten times higher. And everybody has his ideas is, this is a new gold rush. And they've charging rents accordingly. And really know if question is going to happen or train materialize right now, it's a lot of promise, but there's a liberties have yet to be saying Nick Welch executive editor for the Santa Barbara independent putting about the reservoirs into so much. Hey, thank you very much. So how.
