Join us on the shell. Pennzoil Performance line. Randy, wait for Ohio say, is he not there, guys. She's not there, okay? Not there yet. We're going to get to that in a matter of moments, but the story coming out, we'll get to Randy. Wait in a matter of moments, but about the big 10. And the fact that you had the Big 10 office kind of operating, according to the Omaha World Herald in silos and discussing certain things, Kevin Warren with the athletic directors who By all accounts most, if not all, the athletic directors wanted college football to take place. They were in favor of it. But then the presidents and chancellors were on the other side, saying, No, we don't want to do that. We had Ryan Smith on last segment. Last hour, ESPN legal analyst mired Metcalf saying that Look, the the lawsuit from the Nebraska parents might actually work said It's a 50 50 proposition not for return to play but for more transparency and some of the information to come out about why they made the decision that they did. Yeah, I think you've mentioned this multiple times on the show Matt At the end of the day, the big 10 will have to find a way to recover from this from an image standpoint, because this is a lot of turmoil. They're going to have to, and it's going to be interesting to see what happens there. Randy, Wait is Thie Father Sean Way? The Ohio State parent who was kind of one of the leaders of this of this protest at the Big 10 office on Friday, joins us now on Sunday morning on ESPN radio. Randy, What did you want to accomplish on Friday? Uh, this communication, um, set a lot of communication and start something that you know it's a bit more than letters and petitions. Justin feels the pain. The effort of the Big 10 office. I think we all understand. Kevin Warne is certainly the face of this. But why are we seeing more protest outside the offices of the president's throughout the big tent actually voted it made these decisions. Being there Things like some great idea, but we should look into somebody you might happen. Have you have you had conversations or correspondence with leadership in Ohio State, specifically the president. No, I don't mean I don't. I don't want it. That's not me. That's not my issue. My issue is our kid. Uh, one more conversation, more clarity, more transparency about using that thing came about and what can we do further to make a football and a teacher? That's not me. I'm just the battery since the alternator Libya I'm just the match started. The current president of the different organisations are getting together this week and they're the ones we're going to organize. Communication between President of communication between Kevin one If you ever thought you were just the master, Have you heard anything? Has your group heard anything from anyone associated with the big 10? No, not that I know what I I talked to parents from. You know, Nebraska. I will, um, from Purdue from 66 things. As far as I know, none of us heard it. But I don't speak for everyone. Everyone starting to get together. Now we're gonna have a couple meetings today to see what our next steps are and kind of open there. I'm curious about this ever how much of this is tied? So the concern that we might not be able to play football in the spring either. Best way is if people got stop saying we just want football we just want for about You say this conference in the country? We feel that Saying things were handled was just it was crazy, and we just for luck, but not a scheduled for this stuff. You couldn't explain that the same thinking keys. We don't want the head if you do not bring that fire, But let's get some communication to make sure everything is in place. The doctors will be disappointed and have to play to spring and kids that get in the cab playing offering kids gotta talk to agent to make sure you get a good idea for them to do it. You know, so like The insurgency is very important. You know, People don't want to look a college football reasons, but it's a business for these kids up. Randy Wade, father of Ohio State cornerback Shawn Way, joining us here Sunday morning on ESPN Radio. Matt Check along with mired Metcalf. Kevin Warren sent out that letter to the Big 10 community. Late last week. Why was that letter? Not good enough? Because it was specifically didn't tell me the reason that he shows not play in the fall, and it did it. Say what schools Chose voted against. No one knows if they had a vote, but they didn't have a vote. We just want to know who want people to stand up and say, Okay, we chose not to have a vote because of this, you know, and because of whatever you say we want to know what's going to be different in this plane. You know what's the time frame in spring? Right now on ESPN dot coms. NFL mock draft for 2021 Your son right now is listed as the eighth Vic. In that upcoming draft. If Shawn finds out that the big 10 has found a way to play, let's say an eight game schedule in the spring. What does Sean do, knowing that he has that NFL opportunity waiting right there for For the first round of play, because, uh, draft and come by so close when it happened. Come off. If you have a good son, you keep that that, uh That mark and in whatever it is, yes, it don't matter. It's about the teams looking at him for NFL. People think that all these months thereafter there but have your school stuff like that, But it's about really The college football teams inspection looking at, you know, they give you the opportunity to get sick so hard, so so not planning a spring, So whatever people do not even think about it if they get the ball to combine in a draft How far back would they have to move it for you to consider it? What kind of gap would there have to be between football and those events? Something close to the original Get that you have on a regular year. You know, on a rear on a regular feeding your hospital, you know, trying to make the playoffs and all that kind of stuff that that same kind of Randy if you don't get the big 10 putting out the schedule for the upcoming season, and then the delay days later Would we see the same backlash the same response from you all?.

"Morning on ESPN Radio presented by Progressive Insurance. No college football in the Pac 12 or in the big 10 12 minutes from now we're going to talk to a member. Of the Corona Virus Advisory committee. So looking forward to that to see and ask him if the SEC big 12 a CC, if they're doing The right thing Right now. There are folks a lot of folks who believe that what the big 10 and the Pac 12 did. Yeah, it might have been the right decision, but maybe they made that decision. A little bit too soon, and Kevin warned, the commissioner of the Big 10 has taken AH lot of flak. There was a write up in the Omaha World Herald by Sam McEwan, who wrote about the fact that there were a handful of AIDS who were pushing for football. Jean Smith, Bill Moose, Sandy Barbara Penn State wanted football to take place yet. Kevin Warren was kind of operating and in multiple silos and never connected those where there was never a big group of people with that included both chancellors and athletic directors in the same zoom meetings in these same conversations, and so you had one side, so we want to play on the other side, saying, I think we're like we're good. That's why you get a schedule release and then six days later You get a schedule essentially canceled. The big 12 is moving forward. At least right now On the flagship podcast bobbles be the big 12 commissioner was asked what's at stake this fall. If there is no college football in the fall. Is it accurate to say there's probably no other sports for that academic year. I I think that's probably right. You know, there'll be some conversation about that. And you know, likely a lot of institutional input, but that that's AH, likely to be the circumstance. I think based upon what I've heard from our campuses That's the big 12 commissioner, telling you that if we do not get through this football season, then there will be no sports in the spring in the winter slash spring. That would be unfortunate for those hoping for a spring football. That would be unfortunate for those most importantly, hoping for another tournament after we missed it out out at last year. Admire. That would be. I was surprised to hear that because we've talked so much about how this virus changes. And if you can't get through the fall is essentially connecting the dots saying, Yeah, we'll see you next fall. Yeah, And I think it's valid. Tio issued at concern if that's what it is. I mean, I think part of the backlash. We have dig knowledge when it comes to the big 10 in the Pac 12. You got a lot of people who understand that we might not play football in the spring. Think about what we thought in March, Matt about what this would be like Right now in this country about where we would be. We thought everybody would have the green light at this point, and that didn't happen, so it's fair for people to go. What's going to change in January and February, when some of these experts are suggesting things could get worse. So I get that and I think that's a realistic perspective for everybody involved that there are no guarantees in spring. I don't think that's what Bob Bowlsby assaying right now, though. I think Bob is saying, Listen now or never, And I want the people in my league to get behind this idea that we have to play football now, because if we don't play football, then there's no room to play any other sports. Now I've talked to Dan Gavin. Senior vice president of basketball in the multiple times. I've talked to NBC president. I've talked to other top coaches around college basketball. I'm convinced That we will have a tournament in basketball one way or the other. Ah, bubble, some remote location. They're going play. But I do think Bob Bowlsby is trying to encourage the sense of urgency. Matt that listen. If we don't do it now, then you know what? We might not have sports till next fall, And that gets people who are in that sort of Oh, no, that fear zone that concern that encouraged them. I think to get behind the idea of playing now and feeling like this is the on ly window. No, actually actually play And I wonder if that's part of the mindset to Sunday morning Magic mired Metcalfe on ESPN Radio as to why those three leagues continue to push forward is The risk tolerance factor of Look, if we don't do it now, we're probably not going to do it in the spring, So let's at least give this a chance to fail. Give it a chance to not work before we go into the well, There's too much uncertainty. So we're not even going to give this shot and you go back to the big 10 aspect of this. And I go back to that Omaha World Herald story where it talks about how the fact that you have this return to competition committee. That the big 10 this task force, the Big 10 is huge on task forces. I think they have, like a half dozen they've had over the last six months, but this one involves coaches. Athletic directors, presidents Psychologists like it involves a lot of people. And my reaction is that's what should have been the return to competition Committee. That's what should have been on the low zoom calls to determine if you're going to play this fall. There wasn't enough communication and that's you know, the left hand didn't know what the right hand was doing. You had some people putting a schedule together the eighties and yet we want to play. You put it out and the president's going. What are they doing over there? Cause we're thinking of canceling this thing. And you have Kevin Ward in the middle. The big 10 commissioners kind of running back and forth almost like a rob Manfred. Say, OK, I'm going to go to you. Okay? What do you want? Now? I'm gonna go to you. What do you want, And that's not how college works. That's not how these campuses work, and and you wonder like you said last week. Mind if it's just that NFL mindset that might have backfired on the Big 10 commissioner. Any time you have an A D like Santa Barbara Penn State, saying, I don't even know if a vote took place. You got a miscommunication problem that has to be changed here in the coming weeks and months for the big time. And then you have the chancellor of the University of Nebraska say no. There was a vote. And so he came out with that. Kevin Warren's letter to the big tank community saying, Yeah, there was a vote. So get a lot of miscommunication regarding the uncertainty, and it led to more uncertainty Sunday morning on ESPN Radio, the ESPN app Up. Next we will chat with a doctor who is currently on the Corona Virus Advisory Committee and what he advised the rest of college football to stop playing before they even start. Coming up.

"Front of this effort we talking about the same Iowa Vice President Mike Pence at the White House this week praising the great success story that is Iowa Iowa leading the pack rolling out testing at a record pace got lots of testing troubles in Iowa. People are waiting like two weeks plus for their results. I don't I'm not sure why. The White House thinks that things are going awesome in Iowa. They have testing trouble. They have several of the fastest growing outbreaks in the country in Iowa. They terribly with social distancing they actually never did a stay at home order and they have lots of I mean. Don't think for me I will say the local press in that part of the country itself appears mystified by this characterization from the White House that Iowa's doing great the Quad City Times out of Eastern Iowa ran with this headline quote pence calls. Iowa's success story as virus related deaths and hospitalizations. Climb that more unregistered. Made a similar point quote although pence this week called Iowa a success story it's handling of the pandemic rates of infection continue to climb across the state when columnist with the Omaha World in Nebraska simply tweeted a picture that success storyline From pence with this caption are we in upside. Are we in the upside down against that? Backdrop Vice President Pence visited Iowa today ended up arriving an hour late after the news broke that his press secretary had tested positive for Corona Virus. Because of that other staff members on board his Flight. Rask to deplane plane and go get tested so the vice president was late by the time he actually landed in Iowa. Iowa was dealing with a flood of headlines about one of the meat processing plants in the state that pence have been bragging about on Wednesday at the White House bragging. About how great it was that it was reopening ahead of yesterday's reopening of Tyson meat processing plant in Waterloo Iowa. The Governor Kim Reynolds had soberly announced that more than four hundred workers at that plant had tested positive. That was yesterday. Today as pence pence was finally belatedly lending. The state was grappling with headlines. About the fact that it's not actually four hundred workers from that one plant like the governor said just yesterday turns out to be more than a thousand workers at that one plant in Waterloo Iowa who have become infected more than a thousand workers from one plant. That's not to mention their families their community contacts. Nothing just the workers over one thousand cases one plant Iowa more than doubled since the governor's sober assurances yesterday for whatever reason the White House seems very invested. Lauding Iowa a great success story. I had to pick a state. I wouldn't pick them. And I mentioned the Omaha World Herald and the reaction of their columnist to that characterization about Iowa part of the country is having trouble honestly a particularly in the places where those states come together one of the reasons that Sioux City Iowa is dealing with one of the worst outbreaks in the whole country is thought to be because of a huge meat processing plant. That's just across the Missouri River in Nebraska Dakota County Nebraska. That County Dakota County just saw a record surgeon new cases their largest number of new cases in one day. Yet at three hundred. Sixty one positives in one day. And that's a county with only twenty thousand people in it. We don't know how many of those positive cases are workers from that Dakota County plant which also just reopened. The plant is not announcing how many of its workers are infected. Nebraska's governor says the plants don't have to say how many of their workers have tested positive. He says it's a business decision. It's their call. But that County Dakota county just across the Missouri River from Sioux City. Iowa Dakota County does have a population of less than twenty thousand people in their up. Fourteen hundred cases overall now not testing in the first place not allowing test results to be made. When they're testing. I mean denying that these outbreaks exist or that they attend to any specific place or workplace is a bad strategy. It's it's a specific kind of bad though to kind of bad that one Nebraska state senator is now calling a political cover up in his state. He joins US next. Stay.

"Staff spent the day going over all of the video, and we have put a minute by minute. Scheduled down. It's called the tick tock of what exactly happened on the mall with the Covington high school students and the black Israelites and Nathan Phillips and his group, and we did find the audio. We found the video of somebody chanting. Build the wall, build the wall. And you're not gonna believe who said that we have this. And it's exclusive and you will hear it coming up in about twenty five minutes from now I want to spend some time here on earth and Phillips and who he is. Now, he is the elderly native American, but I want you to know this whole story. This media version of the story was a microwave meal. I mean, it came prepackaged and ready made the press could have written this with their eyes closed, and it appears many of them did. But if you care about something kind of old timey cold facts here, they are Phillips is a member of the Omaha tribe. He was born and raised in Lincoln, Nebraska. He says he was five years old when he was taken away from his family and put in foster care he bounced around several homes and was finally raised by a white family who he says was abusive. Until he was seventeen. He then left home started working some construction jobs than he joined the marines. Now, almost every media outlet is describing him as a Vietnam veteran but Indian country today, which is a native American magazine describes him as a Vietnam era veteran which implies that he did not actually serve in Vietnam. Just in the era. It's an important distinction. Because Philip says it was so hard when he came back from Vietnam. He said people called me a baby killer in a hippie girl spat on me Indian country today noted that this incident happened when Phillips was in uniform, not when he was returning home from Vietnam we have reached out to the journalists at Indian country today, but we are still waiting for a response for several years. Phillips, led an annual ceremony honoring native American war veterans at Arlington. National cemetery and after he left the marines. He struggled with alcoholism. He was in and out of jail and in nineteen ninety he met a former middle school teacher who became his companion, and they travelled around the country protesting in one thousand nine hundred eighty four they settled in Washington DC after the tr- the truck they were driving broke down and caught fire during a demonstration in front of the White House. While in Washington, he co founded the native youth alliance. It's a nonprofit group now, this is really important nonprofit group works to ensure that traditional culture and spiritual as continue for the coming generations. He had no financial support for this organization at the time. He was working odd jobs in construction when he could by two thousand he was living in a teepee by the Washington Monument, and he lived in that teepee by the Washington Monument for deterement of November with his companion, and their toddler son and baby daughter, and he did it to tell America that American Indians don't have too much to be thankful before his words, not mine in a profile written about him in two thousand the Omaha world herald said, quote, privately other tribal leaders say Philip is regarded back in Nebraska as well. Intentioned brother, but struggling to cope with a troubled child. Hood, the leader of the Omaha tribe, generally avoids the type of activism that Phillips prefers. The type of activism that Phillips prefers now. Living low living in Michigan in two thousand fifteen I think in two thousand twelve he made a documentary film. He also made an anti-capitalist and anti-cop music video where the cop dies in the end. But then he moved to Michigan in two thousand fifteen he decided to go for an afternoon stroll according to him on one Saturday, and he came across a group of according to him thirty to forty students at eastern Michigan university, having a native American themed party in their backyard. He said they were all wearing body paint and feathers and summoned him over to the fence he said when he questioned their choice of activity. He said that they said they were honoring him he replied, you're not honoring me that wasn't honoring. This is racist. He said, then the students said go back to the reservation you blink Indian. He said that a student full of through full beer, Ken, Adam and hit him in the head. And he backed up in time to get hit instead in the chest. And he immediately called police. But by the time, the police got there there was no one there. And there was no. Sign of the party at the time eastern, Michigan university said it conducted an investigation, but no media outlets seem to report on the conclusion we reached out to EMU to find out their investigation if it collaborated a corroborated Phillips accusations of the verbal and physical assault. We are waiting to hear back from them. Today. Phillips is an Omaha tribe elder and the keeper of the sacred pipe. In two thousand sixteen in twenty seventeen. He was again on the front line with a seventeen year old daughter. He was part of the big protests against the Dakota Access pipeline across a sue land. In South Dakota. This guy is about as left as you can get last Friday Phillips was in Washington to participate in the inaugural indigenous peoples March the March was organized as a continuation of the two thousand sixteen twenty seventeen Dakota pipeline demonstrations it was organized by the indigenous peoples movement than international grassroots initiative aimed at increasing awareness of voter suppression. Now, listen to this divided families by walls and borders and environmental holy cost sex and human trafficking and police and military brutality. So he was marching in protest of the wall. After telling the Washington Post that he was mobbed by the Covington students he changed his tune and said he had approached the crowd to intervene because of racial tensions between the white students and the black Hebrew Israelites group. Wait until you hear the tick talk in about fifteen minutes, all of this comes undone. Now, this is his new statement. He said, quote, the Covington boys witness these individuals the black Hebrew Israelites group on their soapbox saying what they had to say. They didn't agree with it. And they gotta fended they were in the process of attacking these four black individuals. I was there, and I was witnessing all of this. And it kept going on and escalating, and it got to a point where you gotta do something or walk away. You know, you see something that is wrong and your face with that choice. What do I do right or wrong? There was this. Moment when I realized I had put myself between beast and pray. These young men, were Beasley and these old black individuals. They were there prey I stood in between them. And so they needed their pounds of flesh. And they took it from me. Oh my gosh. This is so offensive when you actually see the videotape of what happened liar. Leat and total lie to read that situation the way he did. Nope. There's no way you could say, oh, well, he's a good guy. And he just guide he misinterpreted. Wait, you call everybody, you know, and make sure that they are listening, and they are taking we will post these on the blaze web site. I will tweet everything out. You will have access to this. No one else is willing to do the homework in the mainstream media, what this man says proves he is a dangerous liar. He said it was scary. I mean, if you go back and look at the lynchings that was done in America, you'd see the faces on the people the glee and the hatred in their faces. That's what these white faces looked like. So they were thinking about lynching these black poor old black men, the black Israelites they were saying some harsh things. But some of it was true. These young white American kids who are being taught in their Catholic school their doctrine their truth. And when they found out there was more truth out there than what they were being taught. They were offended they were insulted. They were scared, and that's how they responded one thing. I was taught in their Marine Corps training was at a scared man will kill you. And that's what these boys were. He also told a reporter for the Indian country today, I'm angry with these instructors these chaperones in tutors. These children's lives were in their hands. That was their job. It wasn't my job to do. They were getting paid to take care of those children and act for them and make sure that they were behaving in the way. They were supposed to in my mind. It's a fireable offense. They've aligned those children to take the wrong path. And and they have a bright future to live. You know, if that was my child, I would not be happy with the school officials right now not to allow my child to behave that way, I don't care if if my child is that way when he's out in public. He'd better behave. I'm still scared. I'm still feeling vulnerable. But I'm not going to back down horrible. I mean, he's just lying and lying and lying throughout that entire. He is an anti American anti white anti cop anti military. Leftist activist. He has done this his whole light. And they ate would. He was feeding them without even questioning it because any in the media left wing activists. The Lincoln Memorial incident is complex. But when you actually see what happened you will see that the students of Covington high school were heroes in restraint. Nathan Phillips is not complex. This was not a case of punk teenagers. Accosting a poor native American veteran Phillips knew exactly what he was doing on Friday, and he was protesting the border wall. He has been traveling the country agitating for his cause for almost thirty years. This is what he does this is his identity and these days nothing stands in the way of personal identity, especially not some white kid wearing a red baseball.
