David Byrne on Turning 'American Utopia' Into a Book

"David byrne joins us now. He is of course the musician. The filmmaker visual artist and here primarily as an author of a new book. American utopia. he wrote it. And it's illustrated together with myra common david thank you so much for being here. Thank you this is obviously tied to a larger project began as a concert. Tour than a broadway show now. A film directed by spike lee and simultaneously a book. Can you talk to us a little bit for those who aren't familiar with american utopia which i feel like. I don't know who those people are at this point. But tell us about how you conceived of the project and the various forms in which it's appeared and was it all like known from the beginning that would be in these multiple formats going backwards. No it was not conceived from the beginning that would be all these multiple formats. I didn't imagine. In the beginning. That it would end up on broadway that that would be filmed serve one thing leads into another okay so in the beginning i imagined wanted to see if i could do a show where all the band members were mobile taught. The technology might have arrived where that would be possible. And it also required that i would have a sufficient budget because that would mean i would have to turn say drummer into six different players. All playing drum and percussion instruments like a drumline or a samba. School of something. Like got and i realized okay. That's more personnel. Can afford that a could. I went ahead with this. Which opened up opportunities for staging and choreography and movement and then lighting and everything else just follow. Once one thing was kinda complicated or decided then door would open. And you go okay. That means it then we can do this. And now i can do this except etcetera so some point during the tour. I kind of got wind that broadway producers had seen the show and thought probably i'm going to guess in response to the success of bruce springsteen's show people thought. Oh this can go to broadway. This could go to broadway in broadway. Audiences are ready for this kind of thing now. This is a thing that can be done very very different than bruce springsteen's show. But i think the idea was that whatever popular music contemporary music could work on broadway thing just didn't have to be all broadway music. I wrote additional things for the broadway version extended it reshaped it unused broadway. Audience would kind of come with different sets of expectations but also kind of opportunity for me to talk more to kind of shape the show in a different way kind of address things that you may not addressing a concert tour where people basically just wanna dance and have a lot of fun. The director alex timbers was helping out and he said david you know you could maybe have a a drop curtain here and that in a certain kind of way when the audience is coming in and staring at the stage and the curtain is down in some ways you can have an image that sort of prepares them and in a little bit in a way for what's coming and tear. Myra coleman yes and alex showed me kind of an old graphic. Did he probably got off the internet. That was sort of like the fifty states and what each state is known for and this may be done like in the forties or fifties or something like that. It's a school thing. What were your favorite states. Because you're laughing. I'm laughing laughing because you know you can imagine the some corn and some of them mining or of them are cattle. Oh yes and so. It was also folklore folklore from each state. So the be paul bunyan or casey jones. John henry all these american kind of bits and legends were in there. And i thought okay in wanna do that exactly but i thought that's a nice direction. Thank you alex. So i went to myra who i'd worked with before many many many years ago and said would you be interested in doing drawings and paintings for this curtain.

CDC Issues Sweeping Temporary Halt On Evictions Nationwide Amid Pandemic

"Millions of Americans have been at real risk of eviction over the past few months. Many of those people have now been given a lifeline in a dramatic move. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is ordering a halt on vacations across the country through the end of this year NPR's Chris Arnold is reporting on this and joins us now Chris Good Morning. So this I mean, this is a huge move by the CDC. It doesn't those seem on its face like something agency would have the power to do. Hey Rachel. Yeah. So I mean you might think because especially so far during this pandemic, we've seen you know nothing very forceful from the CDC. It's been criticized for having voluntary guidance that let states and businesses can do whatever they want. You know I if that's the CDC SORTA walking on little. Kitty cat feed this though is the CDC you know booming it's feet like Paul Bunyan, or something. And doing something much more dramatic and the CDC says it does have the authority under the Public Health Service Act of nineteen, forty four that gives the government broad power to stem the spread of communicable diseases and look I mean the basic idea of course is that forcing people out into homeless shelters or crammed together living with relatives that that is very likely to get a lot more people sick. So, who does this eviction ban apply to specifically? All right. Well, quickly to qualify renters have decided declaration saying that they tried to get unemployment benefits or other kinds of support that they'll make partial payments as much as they can afford to their landlord day can't make more than about one hundred, thousand dollars a year or twice that if you file jointly. And that if you're a victim, you have no other option than homelessness or living with more people in in close proximity. which would increase the risk, which is exactly what they're trying to avoid. The rate of Krona virus here. So how many people are we talking about? How many people with this effect we're talking about a lot of people when when estimate from the national low income housing coalition is thirty to forty million people in seventeen million households or families were at risk of losing their home by the end of the year of something like this wasn't done Diana tells the CEO of the group and I spoke to her last night. Well, my reaction is a feeling of tremendous relief. I. Mean It's a pretty extraordinary. And bold and unprecedented measure that the White House is taking that will save lives and prevent tens of millions of people from losing their homes in the middle of pandemic. But she says also Congress or the White House should have done this months ago. Instead, we've had this crazy quilt patchwork of federal state local moratoriums. Lots of people weren't covered and thousands of people have already been affected. What are you hearing from landlords about this Chris? Well, insurance, the landlords are saying well, who's supposed to pay for this? You Know Democrats in Congress had plans for a moratorium but along with that was one hundred, billion dollars of assistance to renters and landlords to pay for that that is not a part of this order spoke to Greg Brown with the National Apartment Association. We're really concerned about this because the piece that's missing is the most important piece in this whole process, which is rental assistance because if the moratorium is put in place, rents are not paid, but the owners continue to have to meet their financial obligations and how are they supposed to do that? Who's going to help them pay their bills and it's not just landlords who rental assistance Intel who heard from she to says, look this needs to be coupled with federal money to pay for missed rent. It's a half-measure eviction moratoriums on their own. Create financial cliff for renters to fall off of when those moratoriums eventually expire and back rent is due and renters are no more able to pay then than they were at the beginning of the pandemic. And, we should say all this puts pressure on lawmakers to make a deal and come up with some money to to pay and and help people struggling during during the pandemic.

"I don't know. Paul Bunyan type of beard, or I think that. I think that doesn't look good. Be honest. I don't think that looks good. But if you have something well trimmed and taking care of you know. And you can grow one. That's another one because I think if the minute that they allow beards everyone in their mother is gonna grow when thinking they look good, and let's face it. We don't all look good in a beer, but. I don't wanna make this a beard conversation because I know it gets people angry and all your arguing about this. Or you're not arguing about this. I'm just saying it's something so small that if they gave it to the agents, would it really be that big of a deal? I don't think. So I don't think so. And I think that the excuses that they use or horrible excuses. So that's another one and in lieu of agents getting attacked if in lieu of caravans forming in lieu of one issue after another that affects agents. Let's look at the northern border. You know, what the weather gear because it's a different color. They can't wear it. So instead they gotta freeze. It's a big deal. But in lieu of all those other things going on. They're arguing Fischler. That's that's the one thing that they've dug in on. And that's what I think is ridiculous in new of we're losing agents at a record pace. You know, we're not gaining more agents were using more kinds of back and forth. That's that's that's what I'm just saying. You know, I'm just saying there's so many big issues on the table that for them to argue. The little ones is is kind of upsetting to me. And that's that's all I'll say to say about that. I am broadcasting from my hotel room in sunny, okay? In sunny, Washington DC, our nation's capital. It's not cold. I guess it's been cold throughout the week. I showed up last night. And they said, oh, it's it's going to be warm. The next today. So are brought the warmth with me. I don't from speaking to my family back in Tucson. It's probably been colder there. It's been raining. I don't know. It's not bad here. It's actually sunny I will be doing some of the show prior to the actual state of the union. The state of the union is tonight.

"And that is more likely. I think the pattern that we tend to see with athletes like him is that I let me do baseball. I got a spot. I can play see how good I can get. And that if I suck I'm Chad Hutchinson. And I decide you know, Scott Boras. Hey, negotiate me and NFL contract, which is exactly what happened with Chad Hutchinson. Wait, it's it's way more boring. The talk about him doing one and then try and the other let's talk about the potential logistics of doing both like your icon. Ick. If you can do both lingvo Jackson Dion Sanders, and those guys will also like freak athletes. Go Jackson is like Paul Bunyan figure. Right. I mean, he's not that. Not that. I was not that well with Dion. You also had the legendary. Day where he took the helicopter between this right? Like, I see more. And we already mentioned the like the poster playing baseball and football together. If this guy wants to maximize his fame and potential as an endorser and just become this figure that we'd be talking about decades later. That's what you gotta do. And it just seems like the forces of pro sports are like conspiring against us more than they were in the eighties. I don't know is that because like there's just more teams expects to have more control over guys now. And it's just the demands are higher. You would think you'd think it would be. I mean, like you said, it's every the infrastructure is there now it would be easier to get back and forth. Right. I mean with dealing with for who was he playing for when he when he made the keys and the falcons it was it was at his playing for the falcons and the Braves simultaneously. When he I believe the helicopter episode was when. The Braves were in the play offs and the falcons had a game that day. And so there was only a I think a brief period when he was actively doing both rather than like going, you know, finishing out the the season, and then and then moving over to another. It's where I mean like thinking about this now like the answer to just sat out the falcons game. I mean, it was it was the baseball playoffs is in the NFL season. Just like come in week four or something like that. Should he wanted the? Wanted to be a legend. That's been what I was hearing in Cuyler Murray sort of waffling last week was that he's he wants to do both or he's just a twenty two year old who can't decide when he made this decision. He hadn't won the Heisman Heisman Trophy. So he's got Boris leaning on him, Mursal. Forgot his family background to contend with his uncle Calvin was a baseball player played in the major subtle on career. Thank and was hired by Scott Boris works. For Scott Boris now surprise surprise. His father Kevin was drafted in nineteen eighty two in the eleventh round by the Milwaukee Brewers struggled in rookie ball and decided to want to go back to college went to Texas. I am to play quarterback the brewers and Kevin Murray ended up in court over his thirty five thousand dollars signing bonus love, and so it sounds like Murray went back to Texas. Am had an ankle injury damage to his NFL chances. So football's injury, you know, bugaboo. Yeah. That makes things a little bit more complicated considering the family has family lineage, the NFL's, then they'll still much safer now football. Nobody gets injured playing football anymore come on Cuyler play football. So I mean, this is a kid. That's hearing an awful lot of great things about him, rightly and spectacularly, and that's awesome. For him. That's hard thing. Like to be blessed with that kind of that gift to be able to do both of these things. And then having important people tell you you have to pay one or the other Bo Jackson said he should pick one. Oh, really? I wonder if both of that way because he famously got injured. I mean, he had this like Carinthian hip injury. It sounded like what is saying was that because everyone is better at sports now than twenty five years ago that I think the implication is book the.

But one author says that now they're just regular old monopolies from American public media. This is marketplace tech demystifying the digital economy. I'm Molly would. Part of the reason there's a backlash against big tech. These days is because some of these companies are so big they're big in terms of users. See Facebook's two billion, plus big valuation, Amazon and apple have both topped a trillion dollars and big in market share more than ninety percent of all web searches happen on Google. The US is taking baby steps toward possible. Regulation Europe is taking more like Paul Bunyan's is steps, but critics argue these companies should have been slowed down long ago. Tim Wu is a Columbia law. Professor and author of the new book the curse of bigness antitrust in new gilded age. He says tech companies in particular were allowed to grow too. Big too fast. They're kind of like an overgrown baby that's still in its waddling close in its crib being protected from the outside world. They have a series of laws that protect tech industry in ways that other industries aren't protected, and they're also unregulated. Unlike let's say telephone industry or banks and that gives vantage as well. Well, you talk about the failure of regular. Leaders to realize that say Instagram was a competitor to Facebook. And so I wonder how much of that was like you said a lack of a regulatory will and ongoing swatting if he will or if it was actually just a misunderstanding of the technology and the potential I think a little bit of both. So I was in government during the campaigns where Facebook bought up much major competitors. Google bought up, frankly, hundreds of companies, and in government, people didn't understand the technology at all the business model giving stuff away for free competing for attention losing money for many years in order to make money later that all just didn't really compute with a bunch of people who were used to looking for kind of monopoly of the old fashioned, even Microsoft righty where you charged money or standard oil controlling an actual product. So that I think was all sort of confusing the other hand, I do think that this crib effect was still there. So new industry exciting. Thing. You know, they seemed full of really good people. So you know, why not just let them buy up all the rivals. Well, and how does this fit into say the FTC's starting to have conversations about trying to overhaul antitrust regulations for the digital age like is the Sherman act going to cut it? Or are they in fact, just normal old monopolies? I do think what a lot of people are realizing is you don't necessarily need a whole new law designed to deal with them. You just have to accept that their businesses. Maybe in some cases, you have to understand that they're interested in attention and not just money, but they turn attention into money. I think what we're learning is some of the older principles really should still apply a standard oil's basic method was to gain a monopoly by buying up all its most dangerous competitors. And that's exactly what Facebook did. So I'm in the school that suggests the old principles which call for the break-up of big monopolies have not gone out of date. Tim Wu is author of the new book the curse of bigness antitrust in the new gilded age that book it's available today. We had a much longer. Sation with Tim on the make me smart podcast. You can find that on apple podcasts or wherever you get your pods. And now for some related links. I rest in peace, STAN Lee who brought us so many things, including of course, that Connick line from Spiderman with great power comes great responsibility. Which of course, is exactly what we're talking about. Now on Monday in Paris, France, and some US tech companies put out a declaration calling for more regulation of the internet for cyber security privacy and to slow down the spread of misinformation. The United States is not currently listed as a supporter of the Paris. Call for trust insecurity in cyberspace, among US, tech companies Facebook, Cisco, Microsoft, Salesforce and Google did sign on. It's actually not dissimilar to something announced last week by Tim burners Lee, the inventor of the World Wide Web called the contract for the web Facebook and Google also signed onto that it's a set of principles around affordability access and privacy, and it'll be launched in full next may. Day. And sure at the moment, I know these things are mostly just big announcement. But they're important because this thing the internet the World Wide Web has changed keeps changing our lives, and at the same time it's susceptible to the same problems as anything that humans create and it's so big and profound and powerful that it will take a large and global effort to keep refining it and in case all of that is too high falutin end up in the cloud. The Washington Post has a very black mirror story out this week about a UK study on how driverless cars are going to change tourism, and nightlife and apparently become little mobile paid sex bubbles because also thing about humans is that there's not a single invention that we won't somehow start using for sex.

"Here and attack each day. The Harbaugh's podcast. We wanna thank Jim Abbott once again for being our guest here on the show, and we mentioned it a little bit earlier in the program, but we're going to Jack Harbaugh tell the story now Jack Harbaugh actually recruited, Jim Abbott, the football player. And of course, Jim was a great punter and kick punter and quarterback at Flint central in addition to being terrific pitcher. So Jack, why don't you tell us about your recruitment of Jim Abbott? Of course, Jim Abbott at that time was one of the, the renowned names and all of Michigan. Thais, school, Michigan, athletics, and Fred Dekker was the baseball and western and told me that he was recruiting two convenient and he had a partial scholarship. I maybe a half scholarship that they didn't offer. I don't think falls or there weren't many fools being offered, then that I remember and ask me what I thought I said, I guarantee you. Whatever you're giving him. I will match it to make sure that he has a full scholarship and what what we were recruiting. He would've punter. He could've punted at any major football school in the country and possibly had a pro career as a punter, but he also was a quarterback. And can you imagine you know, playing with a with a one one hand, but he was a very, very good quarterback. They ran anything that you'd want to run through ball. No, of course, a great arm that he had and also by remember they ran into some little bit of option to, but but he was very, very talented quarterback, and I just felt that he would be a tremendous asset to our team and when thought for a while read and I thought that are deal would be good enough to get him to come to western Michigan, but but he came to Michigan and and as I say, you made a tremendous decision made a tremendous choice and so happy for his creek. But the one thing that I'm most disappointed with Jim Abbott is. He pitches no hitter the New York Yankees and fantastic accomplishments in itself. But it happened to be against my beloved Cleveland Indians. So so my heart is a little heavy that the the Indians gave up the no hitter no hitter, but it couldn't have been to a to a greater competitor. Jim Abbott, he was a heck of a high school athlete of Flint central. And according to urban legend, he never fumbled in practice or in a game at the quarterback position, which is an accomplishment in itself, and obviously saw great accolades when he went on to play college at pro baseball team USA at the Olympics, and so many other things so. And I know that he and Jim are looking forward to being water polo dad's together. You get to be a water polo grandfather with them at the fool. So that's exciting times ahead with the Harbaugh Abbott families getting together. We're looking forward to it and then so good to know that that daughter will be teammates on the water polo team. All right. Jack, enjoy the rest of your time in Baltimore. Safe travels back. We'll see back here. Inside Lahore next week. Okay, thank.

"The big deal, fifty thousand people stay. We, you know, we, I was a college soft or so scared and intimidated and pitched. I one, you know, the third game in the series. We beat the Cubans for the first time, but l Castro came out on the field, congratulate our squad and to shake hands and took a particular interest in my playing. Obviously. 'cause I played a little bit differently and we flew back to the United States happy to get back to the United States Pan Am games. The USA contingent elected me to carry the flag at the opening ceremony that they didn't have to speedway. So great honor, very excited and they had a press conference for the flag bearer. And I went in there and nobody knew who I was or anything. A reporter in the back of the room, said, Jim, you know, you're carrying the flag. You met Fidel Castro. You go to Michigan. Could you compare? But l Castro emotion, Boeckler. Being young and dumb, you know? And I said, well, you know, they're both kind of intimidating presences and you know, commanding figures, and you know, you don't really know how to talk to him anyway. So I didn't think much of it come back to in Arbor in the fall. I walk into the department big John FOX looks at just shakes his head to what in the hell did you do. What do you mean John? He says you compared sit back there to Castro. I said, no. I didn't really mean to say that. Yeah. So he said you'd better stay away from the department and I. So I said, you know, I did, but one day it was really, I lived on arch street. And I wanted to stick through the departments, get warm and then get over the baseball field and sure enough here comes coach impact, go down the stairs, and I'm kind of trying to avoid them. And he sees me and he runs over and he gets straightened my face and looks at me, and he's like shaking. And he says, what the hell is Castro shit. And I, you know, I'm kinda shaking. I know what to say. He looked at me. The asked me if I was getting to class and I said, yes, sir, he goes, get out of here. So last time I walked through the department was was that. That's funny. I'm sure he had the gleam in his eyes. Sounds like it wasn't the. It wasn't the Red Eye. What he's really mad. It gets red is when he's just messing with you and just like having fun with it, he's got this little glean this little twinkle and there's no red in there at all. So I'm assuming. I doubt he'd probably really like I really like to come over eating love baseball. He loved baseball. He used to watch the team play all the time, and these guys and say, when are you going to play a real sport? But he did. He did love baseball. Yeah, used to call themselves a fireball ING left-hander and there was. That's great. I'm sure he loved it. I'm sure he loved being compared to a world leader by you, and we also learned Jim Abbott as a high school. So he's a high school baseball player. Here's a high school football player. Terrific quarterback at Flint central, and he was recruited by Jack Harbaugh to western Michigan, but then the Michigan offer came in now you know the rest of the story and he came here, but he never phone with him practice or foam within a game in high school and is one of the many Flint legends to come down here to in Arbor, but maybe the best or one of the top two along with the guy that you remember growing up watching Rick each..

"I, I can tell you that and the other sport with a lot of whistles I can attest to is field hockey, lot of whistles and field hockey get you, the ball hits the back of your stick. Can't do that and a lot of things. What about you? Jim, then champion field hockey, women's team. That's right. We're blessed to miss Ohio State overtime. Pretty cool. You really keep your obviously your daughter with the volleyball team, but you really keep tabs on what's going on here in Ann Arbor. Don't you? Well, you know, it's so interconnected. You know, my Matty plays, you know, one of her best friends is on the field hockey team and you know, so they're always shooting out tweet and different things, you know, congratulating each other. So it's so easy to keep up with all the things that they're doing the baseball program. Obviously, you know, all the studies, it's awesome. I, I love the school. I love the affiliation and coming back to in Arbor, so great. It was a good weekend. You know, really enjoyed that coach to go back there up in east Lansing and probably hard to appreciate how many people are following along and how much it means to so many people. We appreciate it. We know there are a lot of people that support us and care for us. And you know, as you said, we're all interconnected all the for all the. Same. We all have each other's backs and you know for the greatness of Michigan, and we got so much to be proud for here. There's so so many good people that lead the Atlantic department lead the university. And yeah, just really happy to pour our heart and soul into what we do in football and and it's so appreciated by everybody. We couldn't have it any better. So Jim Abbott, I have a question for you. So if you had a chance to address, they just brought the team together the baseball team for the first time they played some fall ball games including a trip down to Kentucky. If you had a chance to talk to some of the young players, the young pitchers that are just about to embark on their career. What kind of veteran advice could you give the young baseball players that are about to come through the wilpon complex for the first time? Well, you know, the greatest lesson I took away from my playing days is obviously the preparation and hard work that it takes. You know you, you're blessed at Michigan to have the kind of the coaching that where you can have the development that coach Harbaugh talking about there. But then it comes down to trust. You know, believe that you are there believe that you've earned your way to that position and trust the preparation, trust the hard work and stand on that mound. So many times it's just, you know, looking into that catcher's mitt and that belief in that conviction that you have what it takes to succeed in this moment and and they, you're at the university of Michigan for a reason you're wearing that jersey for a reason trust it believe it don't hold back and let it go and then put each and every bit of yourself that you Kennedy each and every bitch. And and that's where you know, you find that life, you find that movement, you find that velocity. It comes from that trust and that conviction. And as everybody knows the second, you hold back or you hope something works, you're going to get the, you know, call upon that hardware call upon that preparation, let it go go. I know you've got a great boche and Beckley story. You and big Johnny. We're catching up before we got the got rolling here on the podcast. And Jim, you're gonna love this potion Beckel Jim Abbott stories. So Jim, why don't you just take it from the top and till Jim Harbaugh your your boche and Boeckler. Fidel Castro story. I was going to say, I'm sure I've heard heard it. But mean that. That. Well, in nineteen eighty seven. I was playing on the PanAmerican team for the United States, and we were the first team in twenty five years to play Cuba down in Cuba in Havana, and it was a big theories, five game series..

There's no question about that. It is. It is tough for treading that water. I mean how they get out of the water and I still have. I can't even do what they do with their legs, even simulate it with my arms, what they what they do with that cycle motion goes counterclockwise clock right. And the goalie, man, the goal is how about them. They got the ball, like getting fired at them and skipped off the water and committee, not a whistles. Jim eighty lot of whistles in water poll.

"I was actually a catcher but being the pitcher to be the star, but you've got a guy on the session. Let's talk about. So take us back to that in Ninety-three your pitcher for the income you you play for two of the most storied programs you played in a Michigan uniform. You played in a Yankee uniform and you got the throw a no hitter, and you played for team USA for that matter. And we'll get to that in a moment, but take us at the mount when you pitched that game against the Indians and you were Mr. perfection it, it was just amazing Saturday day game. I'm so proud of that game because I had pitched against the Indians five days before in Cleveland, and I was terrible. I didn't make it onto the third inning. You know what I got. I got pulled out of the game. It was. It was awful outing. And so five days later had to bounce back and go up against the exact tame team and had a good hitting squad, Kenny Lofton, Albert bell, Manny Ramirez, Jim Thome, e. And so it was all about finding that trust again, you know, with the backdrop of adversity and and struggle the last time out. Out at. And so it was a fight from the very beginning walking on that mound, looking for the strike zone, trying to be aggressive and trusted and believe it, and and just started rolling. And there's no place like Yankee Stadium. You know, the fans are right there with you as they got excited as the out started counting down that ninth-inning you know, three outs to go and just the Rupp from the fans that connection with my teammates and the celebration afterwards, you know, I love it so much cherished that day, and I love it especially because of the backdrop of having struggled the previous time out to go out there. It's like a bullet going, three hundred. There are certain things that most people can't put them into their minds into because they haven't gone through it. You can't even compare and the no hitters got to be at the top of the list of the things that as Jim, you said you you dream about these kind of things. I let the bull of three hundred one time, but that the mind of being in that zone where everybody is getting out. That raise your focus to not get sidetracked to have any little thing that can distract you and take you off the task at hand? Yeah, the I mean, I got the throw at first pitch, Jim once for the cubs and once for the Tigers and I took the mound in cleats in like warm up at everything. Our dream would be just being a big league mound, you know, but now to throw a no hitter in pretty Yankees, and now you're talking about with give me some of the nave. So let's go down Larsen and what he would have done that prime more wanted him. Does Jay knows them all? Oh, shoot, I think will the last one before mine was Dave Righetti. The Red Sox and really cool outing and he was really the next day. I came to the ballpark and he they were Getty called me from where he was just to congratulate with. I was really classy move and David wills. I think pitswon David Cone light couldn't. So yeah, the connection with the Yankee Stadium in the city of New York and the and the Yankee organization is you're right? You're right. Jim, stepping on a major league mound, you know, it's pristine you. You've seen it before. The game starts. The bound is perfectly manicured the pitching rubbers, you know, it's set up for you there. There's no excuses. It's it's the, you know, game on and all this great baseball talk really coach.

"One of the great student athletes in the history of the university of Michigan actually played here in Arbor at the same time as coach Harbaugh. So they're, they overlap for a bunch of years. So we have Jim, Abba, Jim Harbaugh the star pitcher, star quarterback. I mean, we're not on the same level. Jim Abbott was was the big man on campus. I. I remember a couple few interactions with Jim. Member. One time I I've met him was right out in front of the blue front. Jim will remember this, but he was he was walking by and we were probably juniors at the time and Cam, you know, I went up to him and like. Starstruck like a fan, you know, and. But he was he was really, he was really, he was a much bigger. He was much he was head and shoulders above anywhere that I was. Thanks coach. I appreciate that. I, I have great memories of seeing you around campus, and I would argue that you're the big man on campus. They're hanging out with our friend. John colas are and, and it was great days I, it was wonderful to be at school and so proud to have this affiliation who's the first time you've got you. You're in your Sports Illustrated guy from like in your youth. I mean, everybody knew about about Jim Abbott. When you got the school here and boy, he did great things and you career no hitter against the Cleveland Indians. All I wanted to make a trip was India, right? That's right. Yankee Stadium, Cleveland Indians in what I was told, obviously I wasn't there, but it was a Saturday day game. And I was told later on that that they at the football game that day at the big house, they announced it and said, ladies and gentlemen, Jim Abbas pitched a no hitter for the New York gang. Today. And apparently there was a pretty pretty nice ovation that that that one of the highlights I wish I could've seen that or had some sort of recording of that because that that was really cool that it got transmitted back then Arbor and that people connected with wow. This should be. It should be a transmission that somewhere that we wouldn't, that be something that's that'll be good. My first game is a student at Michigan stadium. I wish you remember that part of it. I don't remember. I don't have a lot of members the early season, the early games in my student student time here in Ann Arbor, a little busy, not working so fun. I bet. I bet you've had that dream. I bet you've had the dream. Jim horrible has pitched a no hitter for the New York. I've had that dream. I rewind it would have been a Baltimore Orioles hitter for the Baltimore or the the last shot that no hitter that I was the walk off Homer. Yeah, I was not a pitcher, not a pitcher..

"He said, Jim Harbaugh just came into our bullpen and said that he has a brand new glove wanted to break in and would it could he throw could really fetch your throw him some pitches and he catch with the glove in order to break it in in the pitcher sit well, it's our new football coach, football coach, Jim Harbaugh. And if he wants to break into guv better, do it pretty go says, hey, we're playing baseball. We are playing playing football and a break in Jim Harbaugh new club sit down. So I don't know if that's true or not. That's historically Riley sticking with it. Yeah, that's that's how I remember it. Coach pockets. You giving me a glove, and I went over and I was just out there in the. Near the defense and everything. And I was just kind of wandering around. I was going to see if I can catch a foul ball or something, and. And then they started warming up. Two guys were warming up though, and the only had one guy to catch. And one of the guys asked me if I wanted to catch some and I said, sure, I'll step in there. And so I got typical. I get down in the old catcher stance. Like I know I know what you know. Kind of like thinking, he's just going to throw a couple of law balls and he did throw a few law balls, and then he started heating it up and it just kept getting faster and faster and I didn't have it wouldn't a catcher's mitt that ahead either. And I had no, no catching gear, no mask or anything in now they're coming in. Now. He started give me the give me the glove, the over that here comes the curb. Now he's gonna throw me the slider and. I didn't wanna just slunk out of there. You know, like stayed in there, but I was nervous Dervis and caught Amal and feel pretty good about myself. And you broke and I got the girl throw created. Another story to the. Yeah. Story. The only thing I would say I didn't just say, hey, let me let me let me catch some balls here to break in my mid. I was thought I was helping the team out. Well, that's not the way right. I would not trade. We'll tell Ryan to tell coach, Kenny. We say hi and grand China-made. Let's get some clarity on that. And I think there's two sides every store really three sides his right in the middle. I think that yours is probably the closest to the truth on this one sounds pretty plausible, so I'm gonna go with that one. They're not going to go in the bullpen and let a guy rip through your hand, if just a warm up a glove, you already had to glove warmed. He did rip through my hand to and it was dumb and I never have never done it. I have not done it. Say you need the extra padding inside the glove, the glove, the batter's, gloves, inside the glove, and then the other protection and you would have been teeth and the mega went out of mask is crazy. It's crazy. I have a question for you when when back in the old days, I mean when I was a kid playing catch and a guy gave you a real stinger that hit you right in the middle of your palm and it just stung, you know, and then what you do, you kinda you kinda take your global and you shake your hand, and that was something that you're never did on the playground. You never let the other guy know that he said he brought you to your knees. Hopefully you didn't do that. I did not do that. I did not do that. It would never do that. The thing would have to be would have been broken. I think read Reggie you read. rip you raise me right? He just brought up something to maybe kind of our old friend. Scott berries come into the Penn State game. It's got a text from him the other day, the big league manager. How about that umpire. He's coming, he's coming. He's bringing his wife and kids to the Penn State game got a text, and and then we got into a little baseball, Texan back and forth. Did you see the call? He made believe it was the dodgers game, the catcher interference? No. No, that was a great. It was a great, great call..

"Of the coaching staff and the way they played. But the thing that I was most proud I think of is the patients that the coaching staff on offense in their play calling. Sometimes the fans get a little frustrated maybe with was with runs into continue to run a play, but it's the patience to continue to do that that breaks down at defense, and you aren't necessarily trying to win the game in the first quarter. You're not trying to win the game in the second quarter. You really not even trying to win the game in the third quarter in a game where you're evenly matched what you're doing, you're wearing down that defense, you're wearing down that defense. And I think in the last two weeks versus Wisconsin and Michigan state, you saw the result of that in this game. Michigan state defense was in the same position that was constant defense was in in the fourth quarter. They had run out of gas and we had pretty much our way in the fourth quarter we were able to sustain drives. We were able to keep our events off the field. And I, I. Applaud our offense, staff and Jim for displaying that kind of patience. Well, thanks. That's a testament to the to. The players in in the coaches will take that compliment. I, I know they will. It's been great to see our offensive line establish in that line of scrimmage and improving every single week. And probably when you can run to belly plays at the end of the game where you had to dive plays that that knock out a first down and allow you to kneel on the ball at the end of the game. That's that's a testament to that what they're doing up front and how hard the Baxter running. How exciting to watch. And again, it said idea did first quarter you run a, you run it basically in the back, they blocked a play for two yards and your back finds a way to get three yards. And then in the second quarter block of play for three hours and pretty soon you're knocking out four and five yards. And at the end of the ball game, you're pretty much have your way, but it's backs extending to play from how many yards that it's black floor up front and then adding two or three or four more yards on that. And eventually the long play. And I think we're really our backs are are buying into that philosophy and we're seeing each and every week back to work back to work. They go back to work for the football program before coach gets back to work. We're gonna have Jim Abbott coming up in a little bit on the podcast, but Jack, you have a you have a story for your son today. So let's jump right in Riley cream after the ballgame call, and he was, he was so excited about the win, but he was even more excited to tell me the story. And the pitching coach down at Georgia was born and raised in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Eastern Michigan in in professional ball. Then he came back and he coached at the university of Michigan, has a pitching coach for about four or five years until he went down to Georgia. Two years ago is pitching coach and he's a great Michigan wolverine football fan. He told Riley, this great story. He said it was about three years ago that he was the pitching coach at the university of Michigan. It was in March was kind of a cold day and they were playing a playing a game in about the sixth or seventh inning. He called down to the bullpen and told them to get relief pitcher up and getting thrown. So he got up and he threw and he threw and they get out of the inning and they didn't have to call him into the game. So he called down and told a relief pitcher to sit down, they weren't going to, they weren't going to need him. So he sits the oats sits in the dugout and he kinda peeks out and he's the guy throwing again, he told that guy to sit down. So he picks up the phone and it caused down to the bullpen. And he said, I told you to sit down, it's a cold day. You can't be getting up and sitting down getting up and sit down, sit down and he said, well, coach, you don't understand..

"I promise is the defensive backs coach, you must really enjoy watching those guys get off the field over twelve on third down throwing the over one on fourth down of thirteen opportunities to get off the field. The defensive backs shutting down Michigan state's receivers, all game long. So as defensive backs coach, you probably pay attention to what long and Watson and hill, and those guys are doing and they'd had a terrific ballgame. We have such great young young people that put at a great shout out to Mike origin and Chris Partridge and nadeau knows working into the second year. Had he been a secondary coach? We were ninety five percent zone and five percent man to me and and I know how difficult it is to teach. And I know how difficult and how athletic you have to be order, play man to man coverage and into watch the way our young people reformed in the secondary. My hat is off to coaches and players for tremendous scheme and for tremendous coaching and execution, you guys are really fast on defense. You don't sacrifice strength at all. You guys bring. It's a combination of the scheme that Brown brings the athletes. You have been Herbert's, obviously got your guys that much bigger and stronger, but it's amazing to see that the speed and the ferocity, which your guys play on defense and really violent would be another word to. It's guys like Brian. Monet thought Brian had his his best game, and then Aubrey. Solomon really play in the full game and played it a winning level and great to see him do some things. I mean, I don't think there's anybody that can hit the sled, like Aubrey Solomon can on our entire roster and to see him out there in the games doing that to see that you know that the jump that that he's made. And I'm so glad dad talked about the Mike Zordich and Chris Partridge, and you know what a great job they do and Greg Maddison does and quick pay, you know, getting, you know him on the scene right now has been huge. I mean, he made several several big plays in the game, a Josu shea, the speed and power that he's coming off, the edge with it means just, you know, it just bodes well for our team and those two guys, really, I mean doing such a such a fabulous job in the run game in the past game. Just one point. I wanted to make it in playing the Don Brown scheme in the set. Secondary man to man, no press coverage. Everybody's up in everyone's krill, and and you know you, you're able to get a Chuck coming off the ball and then and reroute them, but the, the lost ingredient. And all of that is that you're lying backers have to be able to run and they have to be able to play man coverage because these offenses know that it's man to man defense, and they ski race to get fastback and an extra receivers. Third, fourth receivers on those linebackers and they have to be very, very talented instilled in man coverage as well as defensive backs. No question and it picks. And Evan a run around picks having choosing angles. I mean, they Devon Bush and my gosh, she thinks he, he can't. He's planted as high a level as you could possibly play. And then he, he turns it a game like he did at Michigan state is fabulous. Texted this gym after the game in the I had so much pride and so proud of..

So you give the twenty four hour rule no matter what yours, it's onto the next one because as you guys say, if you got to be better tomorrow today better today than you were yesterday. And so whether it's a workout day or see the trainer day or a film study day every day, the data improve well, I mean, there's no rule. There's no like any kind of our ruler, weak ruler or anything. I think everything you do. I mean, it's gonna stay with you. Building in attacking has always been our mantra. This'll be another opportunity and these guys are in their twenties, they can. They're still improvement to be made and to be had. And so many guys on our team just just keep getting. Better each week and whether it's chase or shape. Patterson, you know, there's ball handling his been great, and he came in with her being a great ball handler and reaction quarterback and throw or and things like that, timing with receivers and and the ball handling with the backs. You know, so many so many things to do and the young players you want to get them to get them practice in and get them get them playing in games two, because there's so many that are that are really close. But yeah, a lot to do this week, we'll be we'll be working every day. Good timing for the team to have improvement week. Now, with the four-game stretch to come, get the first two thirds of the season behind you on a little bit of a role as a timing good or because you're coming up that win is the time he may be have been better elsewhere? Well, I think our guys are really motivated IRA and what's ahead right now is I know a guy like karate higgin. He needs a little rest. You know, he needs to make his body feel better, and he's not gonna practice today or tomorrow. So we'll be we'll be conscious of that. Not because he's hurt. Just because you wanna get his his body, right? So I think it's a really good good thing for him. He's been laying it out there on the field every every single week Renan. So tough and physical, and but not players aren't going to work every day. I mean, they're going to. They were up in added today, lift in, we'll have a practice for for the guys who didn't play in the game. Coaches are going to work though we've, we've already started game plan for for Penn State and and meet with the team today practice tomorrow and then get some recruiting in Matt Dudek on Wednesday and Thursday back in practicing Friday, Saturday, be back out recruiting. So no, no days off for the coaches and a few days off of the players, Jack, how'd you and Jackie enjoy yourselves watching that game? It seemed like it lasted for about eight hours. I did last. Normally you don't get a hour and a half chance to flip around other channels and and then worry a little bit more. But fantastic result Harbaugh family here in Baltimore, all around the television, watching it and cheering the wolverines on. It was just a fantastic day. I can't say how proud I was of the football team that coaching staff, what a fantastic victory. This one will live for many, many years..
