All righty, Jeff Goodman here with the quarantine Trio and I wanted to bring some some guys on here who have been stuck in quarantine a little bit who have gone through and who can kind of tell their side of what's going on right now in college basketball from the players perspective. We really haven't heard that all that much we've seen the guys have been been able to play games but we really haven't been able to talk to one of the players that aren't able to play games right now. So I wanted to bring on three guys that I think can speak to it well and give their sense of what's going on behind the scenes as a player dealing with all these ongoing issues with college basketball will start with Ryan Daly st. Joe's forward Ryan. Thanks for for jumping on and a year ago you and off. We're talking in Charleston together. Yeah, absolutely crazy year has been sensitive since November last year. It sure has it sure has all right, and we got sulaimon Diya Ki Jay from NJ t69 Junior terrific shot-blocker rebounder. You name it and sulaimon do glad to have you on glad to meet you got to be here too. And then I finally we have old myths guard an Oxford native who transferred from Cal State Bakersfield back home and looking forward to sat out last season and looking forward to this year. I'm sure off charcoal Joyner. It's got to be hard and I'll start with you because you are kind of a HomeTown guy. You're looking forward to playing at Ole Miss this year and you haven't played a game yet. You've been in quarantine since the season began your head coach Kermit Davis luckily is feeling better. He was through quarantine start with just what this has been like and are you locked pretty much dead? In your in your room for the last however, many ten days, what are you able to do? And what's it been? Like I say first of all, thank you for having me over here and we had not really been locked in our room. We have we have the better side of it. We have been working out individually like 101. Sure quit Coast West Coast Davis, he works out one-on-one guards big month, but it's been crazy though. Especially me sitting out. I feel like man. I'm just so anxious to get out there and now time delay again, but yeah, but we've been trying our best course Raley our strength coach even working out one-on-one. So right after we get done with individuals we go work out one-on-one with Coach Riley our strength coach, but we were trying to get the best out of it. We can just to get ready cause we have three practices and we I want to play Jackson State. So we're trying our best to get ready. All right, so you've it sounds like it's not awful for you that you're able to get out of your room you're able to work out wage. Actually want to know with your coach for the most part rotating in with your coaches Ryan. What's it been like for you? You just went in quarantine over the weekend. You play two games you're able to play Auburn able to play Kansas in Florida come back you didn't win but you play games it had to feel good and then all of a sudden you're done now for a while. Yeah, absolutely. Should we thought we didn't have any positive tests throughout Florida, you know, we were I was anxious cuz we we got tested Sunday before we flew down there. We all passed and then they did give us till Wednesday, which is the day before first game. So it's like a three day. That's the only two it's been since maybe like August that I am gone Covetous stood. So can we test every day so long so that way it was hard and then we we all passed us Auburn Kansas and then I think Gonzaga, maybe had a player or a manager test positive something like that when we yeah wage There's two games. We boarded our flight our plane back. We passed our test and then Friday night and then Saturday at noon. We did our spit we didn't do a nose quick swerve into a lab. And we also do the nose one on Sunday, but then Saturday night the lab said that waited to one person tests positive. So that was but we didn't know how bout Saturday night. So they they said they're going to retest us Sunday and that confirmed that we did have someone test positive and as the moment that happened we were all instructed not all individual like I don't know what the the word would be individual like protocols. So like a few of us like I'm an older guy. So I and I live alone already. So I was able to stay here. I didn't really want to go back to my family just in case but then like I think five our guys are home right now for the everybody kind of had their choice. Yeah where they wanted a quarantine essentially. Yeah. And for the guys who are like jadrien and Greg Foster, you know, they're from Atlanta and South Florida. So they they they got them to a hotel. They weren't allowed in the school building. So they they've been in a hotel and none of us are allowed in the gym. We're not allowed to work out. We're not allowed to see our coaches. We haven't that started on probably Sunday. So today's Thursday and I think that'll probably go on for fourteen days or ten. Whatever the amount of days till the 12 or something. So it's been hard, you know, it's a lot of free time and I'm I'm graduating this this year like this December song. I've basically turned it all my finals. I'm just watching a lot of college basketball which is fun. It's just it's just what you're you want to play. Yeah, exactly. I just want to play cuz like it's one of those things where like if you don't feel like you're sick, you're like what am I? What am I doing? But you understand that the the two to 14 day window is really real so you have to abide by Philadelphia jurisdiction and then schools and so that's just my side of the office right now. I'm just kind of watching games missing playing doing jumping jacks push-ups. I'll take this damn apartment building I started doing I think the four of us before we get out this room should do, you know, like twenty-five jumping jacks, just you know later when we're done with it. I don't know if I can make it through 25. You guys are probably a lot better than me at that. All right, so them on your store or can we go back? Can we go back to like the summer with you? And you're from Molly and you couldn't go home. You couldn't go home you were you were stuck in Jersey? Through the whole pandemic take me through that for you and what this was like because I think again when these guys here that they're going to be like, all right, you know what my life my day off so bad. Yeah. So I will since March when the whole situation started. I've been stuck on campus the whole time. So I was lucky to school a lot of international to stay here over the summer some schools shut down. Everybody had to leave so we were allowed we were able to say it. So basically on the campus will like fifteen people on the entire campus so which was hard because you had nothing to do with the gym clothes you could literally nothing in the world in your room the whole time. So it was a song about us things go you kind of get used to the routine after a few few weeks of unique so I got used and then when everybody gets back like is again like isn't different. Feeling like you see people you want to interrupt though. And again if the social distancing you couldn't hang out with people because you will like when people came back you didn't want to be like in contact with that was about possibly so and put the team in Jeopardy. So we're kind of keeping over distances which was hard because in March like everybody was here we were hanging out and all of that. So yeah and everything was going well, we were practicing and all of that team practices and then two weeks ago, I mean 11 days ago. So you encouraging since then we can now wake up and allowed to leave our dorms your other room. So And you're lucky you cannot leave your room. You're stuck in your room. What do you think of that? Charcoal? Yeah, that's that's not bad right there. Huh at least least I'm grateful and blessed enough so we can work out and get to interact with our coaches and stuff man. That's that I'm sound too good right there and do it. I mean, that's the crazy thing. You did this month. You did this all some like did you do it from March April May June? Yes. All by yourself in the room pretty much. I mean in during that time you could live but nobody was there was nothing to do. So how was going for runs and stuff but still it's different to have a basketball and be like working out and stuff and we couldn't live either so the weight room was closed and all the gyms were closed. So there was literally the only thing you could do was go out for that was it so how out-of-shape were you off pretty bad pretty bad worship is new friend that just running around so it was I did something I wasn't as bad as I thought I would be but still you make you see the difference between how you were before the logs are and whence practices starting. So your day 11:00 right now. Yep, you're coming back. You guys haven't played a game. Obviously. I think your first game I saw in your schedule is December 12th against UNH. Is that right? Yes. So how hard is it going to be in this is something that I've said throughout like when you're shut down for 14 days charcoal can do a little bit but like you're not going to be great shape either. Let's be honest. When you come back your team is going to be rusty. You're not in game shape your legs aren't there your shots not they're all of it off. Obviously sulaimon like yours is a different deal here. You're you're going on 11 days. What have you done? Like what have you done in that room to try to stay somewhat active? Like what do you do Thursday? I'm doing some visual work out like there is this work out that you're starting to work out that you could do in the room. So that's what I've been doing the whole time just around 45 minutes a day and I biked so so I do have to just to sweat so that's all I can do push-ups sit-ups like constant type of cardio and that's about it. I know Ryan Ryan you've gotten in good shape, but that was you know, you weren't always in good shape. How worried are you now being locked in yet again, you're going to put on a few pounds. You're going to come back going to be what you were. Yeah. No, it's definitely something that it's definitely real, you know, there's a thing like you can like I could run practice like I've been I could run for practice forever and then like even before the shutdown like those first before that media timeout like our whole like both player both teams were just like, you know, like this is forecast the game speed. Yeah, it's just like ridiculous and now you put us all in a month. So we're a lot. We just got word like about an hour ago that we're allowed to do it runs individually outside with a mask on in places where no one is basically so I think that should be allowed might take on that guys is I think it should be consistent and that's my problem with I get it different states have different laws different schools have different rules all that. But I feel like even with Gonzaga game is showing up there necessarily react to this if you want you can but like in Sag ahead of positive and Ryan was there he knows they played they didn't Play Misty just employment but Auburn play that day. A lot of other schools were either wouldn't have played or wouldn't have played them right and and they did and you're seeing all these other schools you guys in fact all shutdown same reason. I'm not positive test now, maybe it's cuz you're not testing every day you are I mean that that's the crazy part. I talked to Mark view about it last night after their game and and he said well we did everything I said, I'm not worried where you what we took the PCR. That's the gold standard we passed it and and maybe they did and they did obviously since they played because they they just played another game but it's just like I feel like I'm not dealing with apples and apples here and it's not fair even with the three of you right now, right? Even with the three you it's dark L. You guys are going to be a whole lot more prepared than than obviously still amount in n a t are when they come out of this thing. What's it like What's it like emotionally and and again, let me start with Suma because you've been through a lot here. You've been through a lot of being locked in your room and the mental health aspect of this how difficult is it to get through it mentally and not just say hey, you know what? I'm going home like I'm done. I'm checked out I can't do this anymore. It's not easy. It's really not easy being not being able to do anything at all not being able to compete which is the hardest part like we'll be closing at it off for the past where every year at this time. Like you play like almost five seven games already and not being able to practice play games. You just how long I mean try like me for example, like during summer. So the NBA was on and Europe European basketballs all goes on too and there were a few ago so you can watch that but right now like college count is game is on right now. So that's a lot of my time. I mean right now I have school to like finals coming up and that is publicly me going through go through this summer when I had nothing to do it was it was bad and bad days like like I didn't know what to do. I'm like, what am I going to do today and everyday? Is it was the same man? That was no Monday every day was Sunday. Let's say It was I mean, I tried to make the most out of things one way. I try to read a lot of books watching documentary learn about new cultures and faiths that you can write do what you can to use that time to, you know, learn something new and prove what whatever you can do charcoal. You're almost out you guys are almost this thing aren't you a couple more days couple more days or Monday. We start practice. So what's it been for you emotionally. Mentally. I mean again you guys were able to at least have a human contact right you were able to work out. But have you seen your teammates or no? I I see them when they walked through the gym, but we really just can't have contact with yeah, just way what's up and go by man. Good luck on your workout. I mean you doing a dealer. Yes, sir. We have Zone filmed with our coats every every night around 5:30 watching films is watching practices. Just anything State. I am mentally prepared cuz you know basketball going to come around again, but just from emotional and mental standpoint for me. It's just I sit back man. It's just try to see what what's going great in my life. You know what I got like a roof over my head, you know, I got food on the table, you know parents that love me and it's easier said than done because you know basketball is all I know but I mean it's a gift card but it comes back around basketball comes back around. What do you think? Do you have any advice for the NCAA for some of these people making decisions to our Kelly's birth? Was like what they should do in this situation. Is it? Is it the right thing? I mean, I think again what what Ryan what they're allowing you guys to do. I think it's the right thing, you know, like let you guys go outside and even if it's under supervision right run around a track now, it's it's cold. It's cold open in Philly. Kelly. It's way colder and Philly than it is and and I bought a jersey Jersey it's called to so but what what do you think? What would be your kind of advice to try to handle this? Like, what's the best way to go about it? I'm just like you said just allow some things, you know running, you know, we run without mask on, you know, just like being locked up in a room like cage in the box man. That's that's true and they got to realize how how mentally unstable that could be for some of us when when all we know is basketball. So just just like you said when it is running doing any type of exercises by yourself outside with any outside courts, you know, probably yeah, just go around shooting. Just something man that that can allow us to do. Sulaimon you you would shoot in a second outside right now. If you could I'm trying to tell you that it's off line. I was all over my coaches. I'm like nah, they have to be out. They won't let you yet. It hasn't come in right at know. I think people that don't know how long the the CDC it was 14 days now there hopefully moving it from from I think seven from 14 to either 7 or 10:00 how much of a difference you think that will be? A lot they make a lot of difference when? Just because again fourteen both both mentally and physically the toilet puts on you. Yeah, for sure and the thing is like so after like the dog, I mean one of the changes before I tested positive everybody on the team tested negative and from that day or nobody showing any symptoms. So that's the one thing that's that's challenging cuz it looks like you could have one person tests positive and you should have a 14 weeks but then like who's to say in 13 days like another kid can test positive and we could have to be shut down again. So it's not like a solid just saying well, we're all it's almost the same way. Like do you want to not do you want to get it? But like if you get it then like it's a herd immunity. You said like you you get it in like you're good for 5 months or eight months whatever it is. I'm not running into the person's room is positive right now, but it's one of those things are like totally if you if we all were positive then we we would have a full seat we could play cuz we'd be immune to it. So, yep. Cigarettes frustrating that like, I don't know like it's it's hard. So you're walking on eggshells of your the NCAA cuz like if you rush to see if you don't do the cdc's 14-day guidelines and you look like you're like wow, like, you know, you got home like sports is more important than health, but then it's like another thing like, I don't know how you can expect to get through a I mean, I think the minimum 13th Advantage. I don't know how they're expecting teams to like get off and it will I actually think most teams would get through 13, right? I think everybody's going to have at least one shut down. Yeah, some are multiple. Yeah, but you know, here's the other thing. I feel like as long, you know, there's three hundred fifty teams 300 like forty or take out the ivy league pick up the Patriot and a couple other teams, but you know, it's probably 340 that are semi active and about thirty five or shut down right now. You guys are three of them, but I feel like it's long as Michigan State's fine. Duke-kansas is playing Kentucky then life goes on right like birth. Big boys are playing and like the three you guys are shut down with twenty-five like to me and I've said this the day that Kentucky and do shut down is the day everybody go. Oh, man, We got we got to think about this thing. Maybe we need to take a pause but because Ole Miss and Saint Joe Saint NJIT or shut down life goes on guys right. Yeah. It's definitely there's you know, whether it's fair or not. And again, I feel like You know, I just don't know how many guys and I don't know if you guys have talked to your teammates or other players around the country about this but I feel like the hard part is going to be okay, you guys have all been through it. Now for fourteen days. You come back you play. You've all had one guy test positive basically on each year teams dark alley you might have more with Kermit and I know some other other guys, but took a lot of these cases are one you come back and Lee Stetson have this came back they practiced for six days. Then they got hit with another one and they got to go back in their rooms for 14 days. It's dead. Yeah, it's okay for me my biggest struggle with this whole thing has been like like I I have a like a lot of friends with each other's I'm from this area. I grew up five minutes away here. They're all coming home for holidays. Like I want to see my friends like em too much. I can't like I told my friends like I literally texted them all and like September and I was like listen like I'm not going to see you guys still like March cuz cuz I they're not going to stop the way they're living in my sister's dog. Brother, they're not going to stop the way they're living cuz I can't ask them to that. So like I haven't seen my sister my brother like my any of my friends really unless they've had covid-19 if they if they've had it then I'll see them like in the office is like so they're immune to it eventually but like it's not anything it's like, you know, you're you're like it's all worth it cuz it's basketball like there's a lot of the people are like like I'm missing a lot. I know I'm sure these these two are like it's just like you you think like everything you do is intentional like where you go if you stop in a restaurant for 20 minutes, you're like, my go-to shut my team down and ruin are like the next two weeks. Well, that's the thing. You gotta be thinking about your teammates at all times don't actually think about like I just think about like teammates like the Freshman who I've gone through this before years. I play college with I've had my fun. I mean like the freshmen who were here and like, you know, it's second year like it's there's a lot of pieces here that like, they're trying to build towards and like I don't want to be responsible and it's like it's almost like a fear of like seeing people like my own like I can't even see my own brother and like you're young home. Like like whatever else will just get through this and I'll see you when it's all said and done but like that's the one part just like seeing people when I know dark and you said from Oxford, so he's around people he knows back in his town. It's the holidays year or two people like, you know, like basketballs at the 4th. It has to because you can't be responsible for it essentially and right sense of guilt if you are I feel like even though you shouldn't because millions of people have gotten it but you're just trying to prevent that offer NFL football continues on this week, which has a few surprise teams at the top of the standings.

What do you guys say to your teammates? Like like if you know your teammates I'm asking to call anybody out. But like if if it happens and your teammates are going out to a gym. Party to those types of things. Do you speak up? Can you and say hey guys, you know, what or are you just like you let him do what you gotta do when you're playing with fire. How do you handle it off? Yeah. I mean they can I mean, I'm the oldest and the team the most experienced, you know, I've if I see something like I would tell told him luckily Saint Joe's a smaller school and we love hanging out with each other. This teams become pretty close cuz we were spending every night either in my apartment or Anthony long. Like a teammate Department watching games just playing cards and stuff cuz like it was like we were just down together, you know, we did really well with it. Just unfortunately, we got hit with one but like and that was no fault of his own like that's it's just one guy that it just happens. I mean so next month. How can you handle that? Because you're new to this team right? You you probably kind of just kind of do what you do and hope everybody else kind of does what they should do it mostly dead. I'm pretty close with my roommates. So whenever I see something and and they vice versa they they'll say something but we usually just stay inside, you know, play video games where I want my roommates play fortnite back to K and other we just chill so you gotten good at that. I bet plenty of time but I guess everybody can video game expertise has gone up here since Thursday since March for the most. Right, right. So you have plenty of time to think about the answer to this question. What do you do? What do you do? If if if you're giving again if you're giving advice to those that are making the decisions right now how to handle this situation. What would you do? I'm in even though I get the point of having everybody in quarantine still. I don't feel like if only one person tests positive and everybody else negative. We can be isolated like some ways by night like not be allowed to be in contact with anybody. So I mean, but we could have like if you and your roommate lived in the same thing, you should be able to go and work out together and so on and so forth. I think they should think a little bit more about that and like allow me to be part practices instead of foods in practice easy. So cuz for example after we get our requirements about 5 days to get ready for the food too, I mean about too bad game, which is not enough time after know it's definitely not it's really not safe in a way but but everybody wants to play right like you guys aren't going to say no. I want to play bowling. Yeah. Yep. Nobody's going to say no after being like going through all of these but haven't been able to play since March everybody want to play no matter if you have to clean a day after we get home. You do it right. I still would take a lot of ways like injuries can come around but the current in again, so yeah, they can look to think a little bit about more a little bit more about that part of the the process. Yeah. Listen, I think it's too long. Like I think if you go to seven days, yeah, I think again, I know you guys are still going to be going to be tough going seven days is going to be tough. But at least seven number one, you can kind of see the end it for teens a long time seven is like, okay. We got a week and number two coming back from that. It's a lot safer. You can come back and five days and be a whole lot more. I mean 14 days just it's a long time to be off to play a game in five days after coming back. You know, especially after some of these guys haven't ever played a game. Too late. So that's even harder. What we're saying, it's a process. Are you surprised it's like, you know, there's fourteen days like I'm cool cuz I live in my apartment. I have cable. I have off like the kid. Jadrien Tracy's a freshman from South Florida. He's in Philly with no family and they moved him from his dorm to he he's camping at his dorm because he they're like they they all have on file for the underclassmen basically and so half of our hotel and he can't go home cuz he has to come back Friday. We have to be there Friday for a test. So he's like I can't I text him like one I'll call him and just check because like any kind of business you can't imagine what's going through it just staring at ceiling probably just like Countdown the hour. It's almost like a sentence and that's what's so am. I did all summer exactly. Yeah. You went there. Yeah, I think about it going through it all just getting out and not having to go back in for 14 again. Like I just can't again. I can't imagine what it's like for some kids around like I've heard stories of some wage. It's being in quarantine for like upwards of fifty days and they never tested positive now again, so you can relate to that that's kind of where you been to some degree wage. Um your family's back in Mali. So you wanted to go home. I assume when this whole thing broke in in in March you wanted to go home, but you just you couldn't I wouldn't let you it would let you out of the country. Yeah. I mean, I think they will let me out the power will be coming back home. I'm here so I might have I might as well stay. Do you do you FaceTime your your your family quite often back home like last night. I toss almost every day maybe every two days every day. So what keeps you motivated what keeps you going to be able to get through this instead of saying hey, you know what? I'm just going home. Like I'm going home. I'm I'm done. I'll come back next year. We got this year back. Anyway, this is a freebie. Anyway, I'm going to go home and you know what when this whole thing clears up, I'll come home. I'll come back to to NJIT. I mean at some point helps with grateful, you know, it could have been a lot worse than it is right now, even though I mean currency it could be worse actually sick right now really stupid. I've lost their life about because of this month. So I tried to see the good side of it, you know, and I'm not able to do anything. I'm not able to play basketball sure. I I mean I can use time to do something else learn about new stuff. I mean we're going to be coming watch games. What's the best book you've read give us give us the the best book you've read in quarantine month. So I was winning the the destruction of black civilization that was ancient Egypt and if you're in stuff and I've watched a lot of documentary about everything off or he's like all kind of world that happened. The furthest II the Gulf War like the systole like learn about new stuff and also about the Spanish food. When you're waiting in the that's interesting that when you heard about that same thing, I mean I didn't read all about it. But I I think I just Googled it and read the basic you you probably read a lot more in-depth than I did try to just learn as much as follows. You just get something for that too. I mean do something productive out of this situation. So yeah, I just try to talk about the good side of the story like it's good. I mean what is meant to be will be, you know, just take it day-by-day. What else guys what else charcoal you just excited to get out and like play your first game? It'll Miss you've been waiting for this for my guess is you were not recruited by Old Miss out of public school. That's why you ended up going to to Bakersfield out there in the in the wac. So this has got to be like a dream come true for you to be able to play that first game with the rebels a uniform on in front of your family. You're not going to get that but they'll still see you on T. Or maybe they will I guess SEC schools you have fans or no. I think I think we're real our complimentary tickets, you know, okay just minimal. So I my dad my mom my grandma can come if they wanted to but I mean, yeah, my dad most definitely going to call my mom. I don't know about my grandma as you know, they they on the 17 now, you gotta be smart. So your first game is is Jackson. What is it Jackson State? Yes, sir. I'm dead. December 10th, so what's that? I lose track of all day next Thursday. I think yeah. Yes, sir. So next Thursday. So you get out when you say get out we have our first practice Monday. I got three practices into our first game again meet your teach and now let's play a game, right? That's true. But like I said, like you guys have all said, I think it's it's tough on all you but you understand it to some degree, right? You understand how life is it could be worse off but but there could also be things done that could make it easier for you physically and mentally is that fair to say Absolutely, what what else have we not touched on what else have we not talked about that you guys are dealing with right now. I know Ryan you said listen, you went through some stuff years ago back in from Delaware to st. Joe's emotionally and how hard that was. Are you worried a my word right now? Yeah, just that that again you're stuck in there for I mean, I know it's only twelve days you'll be okay, 10:12 four days. Yeah. It's it's definitely I mean, San Jose is such a good place for me like but I mean, so it's not like I like Delaware totally got stuck there to be honest like but here like, I mean, I'm stuck in a place like in my apartment but like yeah, I mean my friends I've been texting and Facebook. They hate me right now. Like they I think that brought a block my number cuz that's where it about. Yeah. I don't I don't offer a video games like that. I just literally watch sports and so like I'll just call him and like talk and like usually they're like, you know, like I'm working cuz like all my friends graduated so like they're not on the same the nowhere near the same plane as wage. Sometimes forget that that out cuz I'm in the middle of the day. Yeah in the middle of the day, they're working. I'm doing nothing and they'll be doing like whatever they do. I don't even ask them cuz I don't know anything about it, but they kind of look at my boss. I got like six heads because I was calm and like it's like done they'll call me during their like lunch break and I'm like Oh my like that's real life like but I mean, that's it. I mean we can get through it. It's just it's sucks. We we were really safe home. He's done a great job with the testing and stuff and it just, you know, millions of people who got an unavoidable shut down for almost everyone I would assume but I mean, I just wish they got I mean, it's not up to me. I'll say I don't know nearly off like I feel like if you do like maybe three negative tests within it like a day and then the third day then the fifth day I eleventh day of producing three straight negative tests. You can start doing Corporation. Maybe I mean now that's not st. Joseph probably NCAA. That's just something that I've thought about maybe. Oh, you're right. Yeah, totally right like to me there needs to be a uniform Universal Roofing. And and again, I know it's not fair this year. Nothing's going to be fair. Right and C double a tournament who you choosing who you're not whatever but to me, why can't there be a uniform rule of okay positive test here's what needs to happen. Right? Here's what needs to happen. And you know, what if the school can't afford it then the incident but he needs to step up and home testing enough money right there making nine hundred million on the tournament take some of that money. I've said it once now give like a million to twenty twenty leagues that can't afford it right now. She's going to be fine. You don't need help you guys right right guys are good. But I mean most of the other leagues the midst and lowest they could, you know million dollars to help protesting and Saint Joseph's probably fine. Yeah, but NJIT, yeah, they could use some money for testing right now cuz I don't I mean again you guys what were you test you were tested in once a week in the offseason and then you went to three times a week you had even gotten to three times a week before you guys got hit with three times a week. You had your just started that yeah, like two weeks before. Yeah. So I mean to me, I feel like again somebody gets a positive test like maybe even you test if you can do it you test every day for seven straight days. And if or like maybe do it like you said what day 1357 whatever it is dead. And after 7, if you produce negative tests, you're good, you're good. You can go out and do with that that will make the most sense to me is not agree with it and I get like against city regulations. That's what that's what we're going to go with but but it's just so different from school to school. Where you watch again Saga you watch a, Colorado. Colorado got hit with one. That's what I thought like I thought I saw a team that packed. Well, I'm not sure Colorado maybe yeah, they had tests like positive and then they were playing like they only need like seven scholarship guys offer healthier. So I don't know if that if that's true but there's going to be yeah each league. I don't I think right now it's up to the schools. But once League plays starts each one of your League's is going to determine what the minimum number of total players and then maybe scholarship players to it might be like five plus to it. Maybe eight overall in any category. I just talked to a coach earlier today. He's like Thursday at 7, but we got five and two Walk-Ons. He's like, I don't want to play like I don't want to play with five and to walk ins we're going to get pummeled. I'm gonna place to walk. It's 30 minutes. So he doesn't want to play with with that but but they're number seven. I think so, they're going to play they going to play ball. This is so many things and again, listen, ultimately the most important thing is what everybody's been safe. Everybody's healthy. We've had nothing crazy happened. Nothing catastrophic happened in college football so far in college basketball, we've been able to get off of games off like it's it's actually surprised me how many games have been able to be played right? Yeah. I definitely agree with that. You know, there's there's like 10 to 15 cancellations at night, but there's 30 to 35 games. It seems like that you can what's the number you guys would be happy with like if I said that you guys all right. Now you could play blank number of games this season and I'd be I'd sign on the dotted line. Go ahead. What's the number try like thirty years? I'm really gave a plane like the last couple of Seasons, so don't be a good number eighteen or Twenty. That's what I mean. I would love that. I just I mean, I I want more obviously I just took those doors were shut down. Yeah. Yeah, but obviously full seasons a goal but 20 20 around that would be great. I think you guys all feel good. You feel optimistic that there will be an NCAA tournament this year. Yes, sir has to be money was everybody everybody knows it's unlikely got about this, you know, you are going to get that in any way they can I haven't found a broken it to my wife and daughter that I'm probably going to be in Indianapolis for a month. Yeah, that'll probably be great. But you know what? I'm not going to many games. I went to the bubble at Mohegan Sun last week for like three days and I'll tell you what it was great to see players. It was great to see you guys. It was great to see coaches different, you know like Ryan when you were informed Tires were any media around did you see any media? I didn't know I literally didn't see anyone like at all Mohegan. They let three of us any cats Matt norlander myself down where we could actually talked to players coaches whatnot. And it was it was pretty cool. I mean it brought some sense of normalcy back. Right? Like we all want that too. I mean, that's why I asked my guess is you know, dark else, you guys just like Ryan played two games. He got that and you guys just want that so bad, don't you? Yes, what was it like off the you know, tell these guys what it was like going out there playing again. They probably wouldn't know obviously. There's probably been nice where you guys thought we would never get to this. I mean sulaimon seems like you were in quarantine for so long you were like it seemed to happen with the trending cases and everything you see on but yeah, I mean it was unbelievable just like just to play, you know, even though there's I mean they let fans in there they let but I mean there wasn't, Mary take place. Things are really expensive but my parents are like, I don't know if we'll ever get to see you playing person again and in college, so they flew down. I mean, yeah, it's awesome. It's well worth like obviously all this protocols and testing getting the thing stuff up your nose every day. But I mean like it's it just some that like I'm grateful that we got two games and you know, I'm definitely grateful. I can't imagine being mid December and not have playing a game that I think our guys are probably looking at like it's just it stinks cuz you know, I know how hard you guys work and I know how hard we work and everyone just not even get a chance just cuz a virus it's just it's it's almost like a fantasy land. But once you start playing it's yeah, it's definitely worth it. Like I'm hoping you guys we all we all go no no more test positive test, hopefully, Cuz our our hearts all sank when we found out. We had just got we had just gotten back like twelve hours before 24 hours before and then we got a call and they didn't know who it was and so for the first twelve hours so I couldn't find anything and I had it and so you guys to was it that or did they tell you right away? Hey somebody else on the it's not you but but somebody else take me through before we rapid so am I start with you? How did you find out we knew who was deposited on the team. So yeah, it is just told us to everybody has to go back to the room and Thursday. They're not leave the room. Basically you get food. Hey, how do you get food? They bring us food. We have the rail reslife taken care of so they just bring us food whenever The knock on the door leave it outside or or can you see him with a mask? You open? You just knock at the door leave it and then leave. To wait until they leave that open the door. Just it's weird. It's very well. That's that's the one when you talk about an equity again. We've been through this already to some degree but like even something like that like Ryan, I assume that I don't know how you getting your food there. So they gave us our strength and conditioning guys, like really really good with that nutrition self that he's really he's money off stuff and there's a company that show two days ago. I basically had to go outside and they said wait like for a delivery guy and I had my masculine he had his mask off there was about I don't know like 20 bags that but like I think my teammates who also live in the apartment building we're asleep so I carried it all to my room and I separate so it's for this week. So it's breakfast lunch dinner for the whole weekend in Vegas and I separated I was like a lunch while I was putting filling everyone snacks. Like I gave everyone then I brought it to the rooms and then I haven't seen him since so the food is really good and dead. You know, that's one thing that they've really helped us with. We're not left on our own order and yep Papa John's every night. What do you do when you're allowed to go? Like when you go to the gym to work out that when you grab you grab meals while you're there or how does that work as a workout? We get breakfast we have a guy for that and after the film we get lunch. He bring his own Apartments. So after the film, yes, sir at the same you guys do individual film to know sir. Everybody do film then like he brings food to like a Apartments. So how does film work you got shipped far apart? No, sir. We can assume you at all. Okay. Okay. So basically after film they bring you then they bring another meal and how's the food was great. We have stuff from Toyo some other places Chick-fil-A Wings. They take care of us. That's good. That's good. Well, Listen, I appreciate anything else to add that we haven't covered anything else that's challenging that people don't know about have we covered it or not? Like if we miss anything you guys tell me because I thought that was the point of this the point of this was really to get out there like what you guys are going through and I think we've come up with a consensus dark else got the best situation that it's not great girl. I can break but at least he can work out in the gym, at least you can go and get some meals until my man. Hang in there hanging in there were all feeling for you man. And and I'm watching when you when you play your first game and sit at home against you in each. Yep. So at home against you and I got to find a way to get that film cuz I'm telling you man, like that's going to be pretty cool, right? I mean think that guys think about like everything you've gone through all summer to get to this point. And is it going to be emotional and I know you're not a freshman but like everything you've been through to get there. It's gotten a little emotional. It won't be it would definitely be all the ups and downs of the practices of the testing the testing testing more testing life. I've only done about four or five of them. I can only imagine what it's like to I think I've got six six now total and you guys wonder what the record is. How long have you done about estimate? How many how many tests have you taken go ahead Ryan? About I would say at least a hundred plus, you know, we get tested I've gotten tested every day since October and twice a week and the preseason and this summer at least over a hundred. Yeah. What about you guys soon? What are you at all it's like 15 to 15 to 20 yard Kells gotta be higher than 15 to 20. Zero what what means you had it? Oh you had it early. So you're clear here. I'm Invincible. I don't know about that down that far. But so you're good for the year pretty much go to that 150 takes I start back testing and December 15th, I'm going to start testing. So that's 90 days. Yeah, I'm over like 150. I had it in like June July or something like that. So what all right, but I can't believe we got this far in the in the in the zoom without you said you're saying that you're positive standpoint. How did you feel any symptoms anything terrible man, since I'm worse than a flu wherever they said man, I will go one day like I can like I start to eat and I can feel and like my smell going away. I could feel like my tasting going away. I was like man with the world why I thought I was eating watermelon and pizza like back-to-back like it was that bad. I can taste nothing but I still have my appetite my bones aching but it was It was kind of bad. So that's what would you tell because again, we all here and I hear from a lot of coaches. Everybody said, well, you know, what kids are eighteen nineteen twenty Twenty-One, they're fine. They'll recover like dog. Are you are you in that camp or are you more in the camp? Haven't gone through it. Hey, you know what? We gotta take this thing a little more seriously than we are or no, most definitely I'm glad they both sides because I got over like like in five days, you know, like I start to feel better so that 14 days I was in there. I was in like a single bedroom apartment bought myself for like fourteen days. So that was I didn't feel like I had to be in there that much but I'm in both camps, you know, it was pretty serious and my I never felt that before I felt like that in a long time. Like I was I was tired didn't want to get out of bed. I was sleeping to like 8:00 that night. It was I was tired with so this one this one probably at least you doing it at least you're not feeling like crap. Like at least that part of it is it makes it easier to go through even though right again, you're probably wondering why I got to stay in so long, right but you feel good. Yes, sir. Yes, sir. Well, I'm glad you recovered, Everything's good. I can't wait to see the two of you guys. Make your your your debuts in a way. I mean, I kind of call your debut still among cuz it's been so so long and dark l u e Vue with Ole Miss. It's going to be really cool and Ryan. You know how I feel about you man. Yeah. Appreciate it. I'm glad you're doing well. I'm glad you're hanging in there. I'm glad you came back for your senior year and maybe e Back for a six-year. I can't convince you come back for a six. Come on, I think so. I think I've had enough like twenty year old, you know, you could be older than I am in League. That's probably not on the card. Maybe who's all right. Listen, I appreciate it guys. I really do. I hope I hope it was fun for you guys in a sense and I do think it's important for people to hear from you of what you guys are going through. So if you need anything, you got my number you all right? You guys text me an offer. I'm going to be watching the two of you and and you're you're Susan debut soon. I'm excited. We're not that far away. It's coming. It's coming. Yes, sir. All right. Take care of guys. Thank you guys. Very good. Thanks again. All right.

"In. The following takes place between seven PM and eight PM. All Right, let's keep rolling seven zero, eight seven hundred wwl w our to sportstalk unfolding. Thanks for being here. We've got a lot of ground to cover between now at nine o'clock at that point we turn things over to Gary Jeff Walker. He'll serve up the nightcap from nine to midnight. Set up some baseball conversation will eventually circle back around to, but what a treat to welcome in our our next guest Usually. We're talking with him about college basketball. He is after all the Premier College basketball writer in the country is the hall of Fame College Basketball Writer, but he is also a jack-of-all-trades for. For Sporting News Dot, com and he felt compelled to write about Ken Anderson. Today headlines Sporting News Dot Com bengals legend Kenny Anderson's arrival on twitter seen reminds us hall of fame needs him to be complete I was honored that our next guest reached out to me for my thoughts on the matter and I said well. I gotta get you on, so we can We can talk Kitty Anderson so here we go. Let's welcome in Mike Decor. See, how are you? I'm great land. How are you? I'm okay why you write about a lot of stuff I'm curious. What led you to write about Ken Anderson? I'm still not even one hundred percent I don't follow a lot of athletes. On twitter or at the at most of the people that I follow on twitter are. People in my end so that I can follow you know breaking news and commentary and things like that, and so that's the majority of people I. Follow because follow every athlete. That's going to have something to say. Follow fifty thousand people so most of the people that I follow our other reporters analysts that sort of thing and I don't know who it was at I tweeted ten into my time line. I found it I found his his his twitter really clever, and so I followed him after that, and then one of the tweets that he did fairly soon after I followed him was one those and follow him might have seen where he said that about a month into his arrival on twitter. He said I'm still waiting to be verified. It sort of feels somewhat like something else I've been waiting for is it's about not having a super bowl win? And when he said that I was like Oh, I got to write about this, this is this is too good, and and you know I. It's no secret to people who follow me on twitter and two, and probably not to most of your listeners, that I grew up in Pittsburgh and and grew up in in the era when Ken play as as a pretty passionate steelers fan, and when when you're going when your team is going against somebody, and you fear that person and respect that person I mean that's I. think that's one of the signs of greatness as you don't want to deal with that guy. And and I always thought Ken was tremendous. And when years later, it became apparent that the hall of fame wasn't coming easily for him I always have been a supporter of him as a candidate, and this was a chance to lend my voice to that. I'm not sure how if you've had previous conversations with him. But how did you find him in talking to him how? He deal with something like this. What does the first time? I got a chance to talk to him, but he was very accommodating. He was delightful. Speak with such a kind man, such a gentleman, and he. He said to me that they he was disappointed early on I think he got into the finalist a couple of times, and he said especially the first time, and it didn't happen. He was disappointed, but he said that lately. He doesn't really think about it much. Except for usually, it's around the. The time when when the selection process is happening now for the for veterans, yeah, and I guess on a rare occasion when he gets a call like mine, but he couldn't have been nicer and it was. It was a great experience to talk to him, and I was really glad to get a chance to do that. The end to write what I was able to write my always look at it from the box checking standpoint, and and obviously the Super Bowl trophy. The ring is missing. A check mark for his resume is that it I mean is that what's missing? And why is not in the hall of fame? I suppose if he had won, he probably would be in, but I don't really understand even with that. I went through and during the Super Bowl era. There are I believe. Six others six six who don't have rings who are in the Hall of fame it okay, you could see like okay Dan. Marino Dan Marino was probably the most gifted quarterback ever to play, and and so you understand that, but then you look at some of the other person, and he's very comparable with them, and in some categories there close to him and the one that really blew me away and you. This was I. I give you a lot of credit. Suisse I didn't quote you on this because the stat spoke so loudly for him without it, and that was when when I look. Look you mentioned that the number of guys who have who have led the league in passer in passer rating, and passing what we call it it three times or more, and you said you didn't think any others were not in the hall of fame, and you were right, but you didn't say it was Steve. Young Barking Roger Staubach, said Lachmann Sammy Bond Peyton. Mann those are the others I mean I, and the line of that I used in the collar was. Do, you think somebody flukes their way into a list of legends like that. I mean there's. There's no way you can't do that by accident. You have to be great. To four to do it four times when you see everybody else on that list, and the last reluctant ball and Peyton only did it. Three and I shouldn't say only, but compared to can the only did three. Might the other thing that stopped me in my tracks i. re read the piece today. Sporting News Dot com it just I realize it's been this long, but just reading that he's been snubbed thirty times I. Mean that's just that's gut wrenching to think it's not just a couple of times. They've passed him over the past him over thirty times. Yeah, it's it's mind boggling and I it to me. It is unfair to. To to hold what people talk about Super Bowl rings, and like it never been anywhere near it. You could see it. I mean it if he was a a big stack quarterback on teams. That never won that I can. I can understand that, but that's not the that's not the fact. I mean. He played in the Super Bowl nearly one he had to beat Dan file to is in the hall of fame. May mostly on numbers band fouts's all time career record a- As a starting quarterback. He's not great. He didn't two games over five hundred and Kansas significantly better than I can't eat kings about twenty over five hundred. So he, so he wasn't that I. It's hard to understand. He was a different stylistic quarterback any time when the prototype was was a bradshaw or someone like that who was in through a lot of bombs, and maybe a lot of picks as well, but that was the way the game was played, and then along comes Ken, playing and Bill Walsh it system, and really kinda shows the way to the future. McCain Anderson was a he was a two thousand quarterback playing in nineteen, seventy or nineteen, seventy five I should say, and and I don't know that because he didn't play the way others did then he got the level of respect that he should. It is a fantastic read sporting news dot, com, today, and on twitter feed as well. It was, it was a blast talking with you about it. you knew going in I was going to get fired up. I certainly got five. Yeah I kind of had a feeling. You'd have to say on that. Trust me when. I will say this I'll leave this I, you know they had the centennial class ten hall of Famers who were mostly veterans the people who would be considered by the Veterans Committee and and not new. You know the what they call the modern day, players and Donnie Shell was one of them and I loved I show. Every game he played when I was a kid. It was a fantastic player. Absolutely belong to the hall of fame one hundred percent, but if you stood me there and you put me under oath, and you said which I it's. It's thousand east to which of these two long the. I would have had to say Ken that that's that's the honest truth, and it's not fair that he's not in. Mike, you're the man. Read it on Sporting News Dot. com is twitter account at tsn might to follow along as well. always good catching up again soon. Thank lengthy was great. Thanks Mike, Mike Decor see from the sporting news the hall of fame. College basketball writer moved to write about Ken Anderson and the Hall of fame. Snub and think about that. Years Thirty snubs not not a couple like Oh. Yeah, forgot about him. I'll get him next time. Thirty Times the committee, which certainly changes in personnel over the years. Assess the career of Kenny, Anderson and said. and not this year. When we come back, let's do this. We approach the midway point of the show. I should open up the phones. Five, one, three, seven, four, nine, seven, thousand, one, eight, hundred, the big one pound seven hundred on. T. Two things on the board here. The owner said all right. How about fifty to sixty games for the season? What would a fit would do you subscribe to the theory? I'll take fifty to sixty games. Rather the no season, or do you subscribe to the Theory Fifty Sixty game seriously? How can how can there be any credibility attached to a fifty to sixty seat game baseball season? We'll get into that. You have any follow up thoughts on Kenny Anderson. We'll do that as well. Offer mine on Kenny as we continue. Hey, thanks for being here.

Affording College with Aaron Greene

What is Naviance?

"Welcome to afford in college with Aaron Green Founder and President of college liftoff. How in the world are you GonNa Four College in this day and age with an average price tag about one hundred fifty thousand. You're buying each kid. You send a schoolhouse really is a scary thought. It's what can you do. How much should you save. is their way to solve this problem for your family. That's why do this podcast Erin. Green and I run a Premier College planning firm in the Mid West coll-college liftoff. I'm here to tell you that there's a right education for your child. No matter who you are no matter where you live how much money saved even no matter what your child's grades like like etc and I'm going to tell you how all right so I'm sitting here with my co Workers Alex and Emma on this one so I think we're discussing navy today. This is kind of like a guidance counselor tool that and not a lot of parents really know what's happening ending with. I think they get a lot of hints from when they go to their senior nights in the here from their guidance counselors and hear the word now beyond what what does that mean was doing I'm GonNa read this according to their website now viansa comprehensive college and Career Readiness Solution that helps districts and schools align students strengths and interests to post secondary goals improving students outcomes and connecting learning to life jargon so what does that mean. That's pretty. That's pretty up there as far as a description so yes exactly it's it's a website tool and Mike software it as a tool. It's a very good one. You know things like that. I love my Microsoft Word uh-huh so what is Nava Anson. How it'll how do we see kids interact with it? What do you think I mean I kind of describe it as a guidance counselor platforming platforming tool that they use and it makes their lives a lot easier from the perspective of like keeping track of their kids keeping track of like sending over transcripts letters of recommendation all that kind of stuff logistically it makes application process a lot easier for kids and the counselors but it also has some other functionality that I thinks a little bit misunderstood talk a little bit about how they have like some college research and matching tools. it actually shows you. The history of how many kids at your school will apply to a certain place how many got in what they're used to tease scores were which is helpful data useful for US dairy very ambulance. I like to look at that when my kids bringing their Nabi on so you can check it out and see where they all and they like to see it too because it helps you kind of predict where you might you might end up. They also talk a little bit though about how they do career assessment man personality tests which are something on. I think we want to dive a little bit into today. He's a Myers Briggs test to Yeah To Assess Your Child Oiled and tell you if they're like an NS JV or something which you know is designed to help. Families and kids understand their AH their kids personality so that we can find the best jobs out there for you Yada Yada Yada. We'll talk about whether that's like a good tool or or not. I mean the the Myers Briggs tested something. It's definitely something and it's a really fun test to us. I know I've taken it funds the high school kids like what they do they take quizzes at school they take quizzes and magazines and ESPN exactly and like people betray the bags anymore. I feel like as people to like. We like to try to put ourselves into boxes and what is my personality type. This is me I'm this astrological signer this whatever and like it helps you kind of define your personality a little bit and come up with who you are. which is something you're really looking for? When you're sixteen years is old but I feel like it can also be a little bit. I it's helpful as maybe a starting point but also sometimes I feel like it can put a kid in a box right if you're like this is just this is who I am and this is the path. I'm going to have to go down because this is what my test bit back at me exactly as conversation surrounding it right and you know it this at this age and and really at any age like any any given day that you're taking a test like Myers Briggs or strength finders or any of those tests like you might answer a little bit differently differently depending on what's going on in your life at that moment. Are you thinking about or are you feeling more introverted because of something that happened with your friends or at school or at home than maybe later when you're feeling we're extroverted things things change your moods change and it's hard to really hard to nail nail down. Somebody's personality on test when it comes to just a snapshot of the moment that they're taking it absolutely in this in these are all fun things that we can really do. You know we're talking about college. Though now we're talking about a house level decision and some of them. That's GonNa make such an impact on a kid's future that there is nothing else to compare it against gets in that sense right. You know you can't you can't match a career based on just one personality tests and you can't it also doesn't take into consideration today's economy a and what jobs are out there like what the really really like so. I'm I'm a realtor my other job. I do it for fun for friends. I I really feel like ambiance is a lot like zillow when it comes to finding a house. It's a really fun tool. You get to go on there and you get to see like what houses are available. Would you know they last sold for that kind of thing but it's not perfect zillow will feed you. A lot of houses actually aren't available or they sold but you know zillow's not updated and whatnot. I'm not trying to rag on sale because it's really fine and I like to go on it too but you can't just you can you theoretically can go on and find a house and just do all of it you can you can buy it. You know yourself hyphen and go through the contract work and navigate it all yourself but you don't know if you're getting the best deal. You probably are not getting the best deal. You don't now if you're getting the right fit for what you're looking for in the first place you you know zillow's not gonNa you know do home inspection for you or are you know there. There's just a lot of other things that go into it that you know. A website tool can't do you really you really need to do more homework and more personal work. I mean you deal with bought right useful tools. I think that's the marketable difference between this and which you're describing zillow navy and then the rest of like like college planning on working with somebody on it. There's a difference when a tool and then a process and a person very say so all these great tools roles and there are all useful in some degree but at the same time like you said like Zillow isn't GonNa go and actually negotiate a contract with you. I mean how many people out there literally early raise your hands as you're reading this have done a physio and for sale by owner yeah and how many of you thought about it and then thought otherwise about it because it's overly complicated on how to buy a house you have to line up the financing. There's so much to it and for good reason you go to somebody right because you're literally spending two hundred thousand dollars in most cases on something that's going to pretty much change your life being buying a house and then you have to have fifty the witnesses to sign off on it before you even get to that right so just seeing pictures on a website. It's like you're. You're kind of taking a risk right. They're not doing you know your full due diligence. If you jus- go that route but you know I am here to tell you that you know figuring out your college plan is actually way more complicated and way harder than buying a house. So you know I mean more yeah. I said on both sides and and it's a lot more at risk. There's a lot more. There's a lot more that is confusing. takes US two years right. I mean you can buy a house and hopefully a couple of weeks. A COUPLE OF MONTHS TAKES US two years to do this absolutely right and but the the the the inevitable issue and of course in this where I was trying to make these connections so people can see how these things connect to their normal lives and and again why now is a great tool to get you kind of often Ryan to some degree but it's not a replacement for just good in person working communication with a with an adviser things like this again in house analogy. Let's say any given your city. There's three thousand houses on the market which might be actually pretty accurate. Are you going to sift through three thousand houses on Zillow and people are you going to sift through all the options that you need an order by that place and then find like okay are the neighborhoods lineup to what we're looking for Do we have enough bedroom all those things. Are you going to do this. Forty two hundred schools in this country makes it a lot more complicated. There's four thousand two hundred university in this country each one with about two hundred majors in ranging from price tags for about two thousand dollars to it's eight hundred thousand dollars per year. That's what you're dealing with now beyonce and a teenager. That's our solution to currently like really like. That's that's what we're saying like a fifteen year old sixteen year old seven zero. Here's will go figure that out. Yeah play on the website and find your school. Put it that way not dogging the onset aw it's about finding a place for now beyond just explaining what is what is right yeah. I feel like we're doing kids. It's a disservice in general in this country saying like here. You're sixteen years old. Just go figure out what the heck you. WanNa do for the rest of your life but I think there needs to be a lot more conversation. Surrounding it like you said there needs to be a person that they're working with and that they're able to talk through their thoughts and feelings about these things not just say hey. Here's the results of a test yeah. Go on and can figure out what you WANNA do now because it's not going to take your job. Shadowing may help you develop your career path once it's given you said you'd be a really great dentist. It's it's on help you develop that yeah. They're not going to have that confidence that they would. If they tasted at touched it felt it out there in the field experience you get doing job shadowing like you said and doing research on careers and on schools guided research not just like here's a book of one hundred and seventy seven major sort through them but yeah they won't they won't don't feel as confident when their and their direction. I think about the other side and so I I think the the core issue about this concept of what nonviolence Lavigne's is versus. What we're trying to make it be is one in this country that it's just like? We just want the quickest and easiest route right but that's not always the best answer and in fact. It's not even close. I I just want everybody to always think of this college planning thing in the same level of magnitude as again. We're talking about buying house today. It is of that magnitude greater magnitude. Yes it's a greater magnitude even of buying retirement and you don't go to a bad for that either like you actually actually go to people for these large scale investments. That's what colleges. It's a large scale investment academically financially your kids future. We want what's best for kids across the board. One small tool. That's useful part of this is not the solution to it. It's part of the solution and we want to make sure that we can understand Dan. This has a whole that we can see like it takes that it takes two years of good guidance of understanding what it is you. WanNa do on one to one scale almost in order to be able to figure this stuff out is again. Anything of these large asset magnitudes of these large asset buys us. Just say we're we use each other. We use people in order to be able to do these things things same deal here we haven't even mentioned either of the fact that how likely is your kid to actually sit down and use them the accountability their self guide your way through all this by the way out of these forty two hundred plus for you and the financing for four two and we haven't even really gone and that's this is really honestly for a whole other podcast but the fallout of not doing this right not planning for college right like what what's the consequence well and. I'm sure we will go through Alan podcast but the truth is. I'm sure anybody listening can automatically put a story in their head. Yup of how this has been done really badly and how this can ended up really badly. We'll save that topic for Halloween. I mean just like high level like what's the consequences so you you know you go to the Ron College. Pick the wrong major. Stay there too long and up taking on rampant amounts of debt none in that. Let's see what's your all true. Imagine the school has the majors you like but it has no intention of doing the major in the way that you wanted imagine if you're doing use this example a lot if you're doing marketing and you're thinking Oh. I'm really highly creative. I can't wait to get into design and then you get a very statistics laden math heavy marketing program and you're GonNa hate life in that program and you're going to think oh my gosh. I hate marketing know the truth. Is this version version of that and you pick. The school didn't do it in the way that you wanted to so now you're for your job prospects or you can just put your major probably. GonNa Switch your major into something. That has nothing intendant on what you really wanted to do. So now you've screwed up on the financial structure because you've really haven't paid attention that the academics that you're going there for completely changed and your job prospects and what you're going to do afterward is completely changed and now your problem school for five years and maybe scholarship money but ran after four because because that's how long they run so now you're paying for that last year or maybe even two extra years. It can get to be a real snowball of problem okay. I think this is really helpful awful for parents especially parents of seniors that are hearing about now the aunts and just like maybe even for the first time a lot of my kids. I'm like do you use. I think I've heard the word before four eighth grade. We did a tutorial again. NAVIENT is a useful tool. No doubt about it. We use it all the time whenever our kids have had that system set up at the high schools in order to help us finish the college application process. It's the perfect way if I could even say hi how to submit transcripts to letters of REC that way they're they're automatically. All of the guidance counselor have to do is push a button. It makes very seamless with common APP. It's really awesome those pieces aces so I think that there's just understand the difference between the tools versus the trade yup right and seeing what we can make make differences out of those things okay well Aaron.

NFL: Move the Sticks with Daniel Jeremiah & Bucky Brooks

573. Impact of NFL & College Players Opting Out

"And now move the sticks with Daniel Jeremiah and bookie brooks. What's up everybody walking to move the sticks Dj Bucky back with your buck how you doing. Ma'am Man. I'm good. I'm good is a is an exciting time because at least when I turn on TV beginning to see football highlights Gaza just conditioning and stuff like that. But you the sense that things are coming back. We're begin to talk about real football stuff. We'll begin to see guys kind of going through the motions and working out I'm fascinated I'm I'm excited I'm excited to see what takes place one of the things I was thinking you know how especially when you're scouting like that hall of fame game would always can. Sneak up on, you beat going about your day like Whoa wait their turn on the TV football game on. Have you thought about the fact that's GONNA be a regular season game. We're going to be kind of not seeing a lot and there's only a couple of weeks of practice in your clock is going to tell you well, I haven't seen all this stuff. We haven't had preseason games. So the seasons still like a month away all sudden like foam like we're playing games year, we are playing games. This is so different but I think Dj, you been close enough to the college game. It's really not that different It just kind of depends on if you're a coaching staff kink on. Adept to how college football teams prepared to play because if we were dealing with the college game primarily, this is what would happen. You would get a couple of weeks and then before you know it, there'd be some kind of kickoff classic that your team is playing in and I think NFL teams and I think Bill Belichick said it eloquently than when he talks about a teams have been doing this for you. So we just have to prepare team to get ready to play. We have to go through the process of blocking. And tackling and learning the fundamentals. But when they kick off whenever the opening game is, we need to be ready but and talking to somebody because I talked to a couple of coaches and they said this year unlike other years your team can have to work itself into shape the first quarter of the season, their first game no matter what can the fitness and conditioning stuff that you've done is going to be overwhelming for everybody Did you've been on the sidelines during those opening gains and you seen guys reason and you can't breath? You're trying to see it as a player. I can remember just trying to hold off for dear life until I can get my breathing under control in those opening games and it's going to be like that. But typically about about week two and week three everyone has acclimated to the speed and intensity, and then it becomes about the execution. Sometimes, it takes about four to five games to get everything Kinda button-down, and that's why you'll see some teams get better and better over the course of the season and play their best ball heading down the stretch, and you hope that you win enough games early that when you're playing your best is still matters. All right. You've you've led me to A. Point, that weren't even going to discuss but that's what agree about these conversations as we can go into some new ground, I do want to let everybody know what's coming up. We're going to talk about the opt-outs we've had. Now a couple of premier college players have opted out tip of the iceberg my opinion you're going to see a lot more but we're going to discuss that also going to discuss opt-outs we're seeing from the NFL level with some big name players opting out, and then the news that just came out today about how that will impact a salary cap and what that could mean maybe for some extensions for some teams we're gonNA touch on that as well as. The the strategy, some of the different strategies teams are taking in regards to being able to quarantine players in kind of create an individual. But so we want to talk about some of those those things but you led me to a point buck I've never thought about this. But you're saying we've talked about the stress on communication the you know the question of whether or not you can be in shape Some of those issues led me to believe if you're a veteran team if you're a team like the saints or you're a team that has your nucleus is been together for a long time man what a year to go fast, you know you talk about we've seen the NFL game kind of adopt some things. From the college game and try to pick up the pace a little bit chip Kelly kind of ushered that to the National Football League, and we've seen a lot of teams adopted changing tempos some trying to go to me man if you're buttoned up offense and you know everything, I, am going to go as lightning fast and make this team that has had no offseason with new coaches in new players and communicate in a very condensed amount of time. Great Point. That's a great idea and I think is a great idea for. All teams, but for veterans, teams and veteran quarterbacks, it really makes sense because when you have a drew brees, Tom Brady guys who have seen everything by going fast you were able to control them dictate and allow your quarterback your best player to really put your team and optimal positions each and every play. It makes sense when you're the saints because you fat continuity. Yes. So many guys they have hand signals Dave. They've done this attorney on the practice field. So as a natural advantage, but I also think is an advantage for the teams that haven't been together a while or teams that have young quarterbacks when. You go fast the advantage of going fast you simplify what the defense can do. You don't see as many exotic pressures. You don't see a wide variety of coverage because communication is the priority and coaches are scared to really open up the playbook when they worry about everyone getting the call. So if I have a young quarterback like a Joe Borough who is very comfortable operating system fast where he has control might think about jump starting the offense by going fast all of the time to limit what the defense can do. It eliminates and reduces some of the variables which should allow the young quarterback to play better. I'm going to challenge you here because I know you you played and the K gun there, and you guys were kind of one of the first teams that really cranked up the speeds. The speed of the game can't remember no Richardson coached at Arkansas. Do. Do you remember the nickname of the way they played or the style. Yeah Forty Forty minutes of Hail. Municipal. Ninety Ninety four feet A. Pure pressing on a side note when I coach I know you knew that book will be when I when I coach my my son's wreck ball teams when he was like seventy nine Dj a four core pressing because when you have little kids, you can't put an office. So just create turnovers and layups all we did was press and she lay ups but I like that you bring that up forty minutes of hell because. When you're going fast, what you're doing is not only reducing the variables when it comes to what you see from the defense. But now you put conditioning at the forefront of everything and with these big guys not being able to rotate guys in and out the game if you're able to have success a couple of drives in a row and you talking about wearing down a defense especially if it's a defense that they want to have the big Gaza Front. Meaning three hundred plus pounders you got to run stoppers or whatever. Well, you never let those guys off to feel. So the pass rush eventually leaves go back and think about the Atlanta Falcons New England patriots superbowl when Atlanta had that big lead but they're forced to be a pass rush mode against Tom Brady playing fast and the third fourth quarter we saw them wilt and he eventually had his way because see some teams gain an advantage by doing that. Yeah, I mean to me I'm looking at the team just won the Super Bowl. That's what's scary. I mean I I don't think it's far fetched to say that the Kansas City chiefs in this environment can be more dynamic and more explosive than they've ever been because you have the relationship between an you're reading Patrick. Mahomes. You've got the majority of the skill position players all the same. The offensive line is very little turnover, offensively same coaching staff. They should be able to go fast and to me I think about the movie like hoosiers like where's the ball are we can use the ball like know we're not practicing with the ball like this is this is that's where we are right now you can't really practice. So the teams that are taking this time right now, this kind of ramp up period to really get themselves phenomenal shape man that could have a huge payoff for him to start the season and maybe even throughout the season. Think you could have a significant advantage that simple thing that you you speak on. I think it matters. It doesn't always have to be no huddled tempo when I was with Michael, the Green Bay Packers Pittsburgh steelers always give us problems because at the time they want to only teams ever into three four defense. They did the zone blitz stuff that was very very complex and hard to pick up. So what we do DJ, we would go off I out all of the time and the reason why we would into how to get out to get to the LAI goal. I sound you eliminate the Free Sneh reads you make them just get lined up dictate. and. So once again, with a veteran quarterback that understands what he's looking at, it's a huge advantage so whether you go temple no or temple quick paced fast rhythm. Man You can give your quarterback, your office, a significant advantage especially when you only have three or four weeks to work your team into shape defense is going to be playing on the heels. From The way this season is appearing to lineup. I'm thinking about some other teams that could do this. I. Mean off the top of my head coach. Phil. Philadelphia Eagles. Could do it because you've got Winston. Doug Peterson who have that along relationship there Baltimore you talked about the way they played naturally lends itself to play in this way the rams with McVeigh in golf you know having a good chemistry there and I think you've got a lot of the same pieces on the perimeter. They could be another team it should be able to go pretty fast. I think that that Era Zona. Kings Bury's background they have. The ability and that's what that offense is at its best their home and like that, and Roland calumnies played in that style of pace. So they could be another. What I mean seahawks have had continuity. There's there's a lot of teams when you start rolling through this had some continuity here with the head coach, the quarterback and most of their offense to be able to really create this thing up yet the team that you mentioned and I think it would be fascinating to watch teams already had a tough enough time trying to figure out what the Baltimore Ravens are doing with the Mark Jackson. The option stuff that they do really test the discipline of your defense and so even though teams of it all off season to break this down near, you trying to get your team ready to play against something that is unconventional. Lamar Jackson played fast when he was at Louisville imagine being an UPTEMPO team that is really run heavy. That is the thing that we haven't seen any. If you go back and you really think about chip Kelly and did it chip Kelly operated fast so we could get the running game on track because if you pick up three or four first downs in succession, the defense gets tired and now you don't WanNa lay on those blocks you're slow to get off and get into the running I. Think Baltimore could have a huge advantage with the option attack today run I think we stumbled onto something here just kind of accidentally I think this is this is going to be fascinating to watch. I think it is fascinating to watch from day one. If you're a defensive coordinator I, think you have to put some drills in and when these teams are talking about more scrimmages I think you could see this be a big part of that. It may not be lot to the ground but third temple hurry up offense temple off is going back and forth the quickest way to work your team back in the shape is to make your practices like this. So they have to acclimate to playing fast and communicating and those things. I would be more apt to do this from day one to jumpstart the conditioning of it. So I talked to a coach and this is a one of the better teams in the League and he said that they've done all their homework on this and trying to get ready you know what a lot of studying the college game and he said look we are going to be tackling to the ground. It's something that we don't ever do because you get some preseason games at that. Maybe it's one small period here they're very very. Little tackling takes place on. NFL field during training camp. He said now this year we're going to tackle more in the in the timeframe we have. We ever have before we're going to go to the ground because we have to get those reps that was fascinating to me. We did I ever hear anybody talk like that in the NFL. Yes there was fascinated but I wonder how effective that would be imported as might be because I've been studying too much ivy league stuff and Buddy TV's and dartmouth because they don't practice at all. They don't they rarely have lied tackling they do everything with dummies and bags and robotic dummies that we've seen and some similar things that the seahawks have actually made famous. I do wonder how many teams are going to go over the top when it comes to trying to get their physicality at toughness in their practices. But how was going to work to the detriment when it comes to having a tire team or beat up team when we kick off the regular season or this coach was even he even said this he said look. There's going to be some casualties like we're going to lose a couple of players because of this but we feel like they've done their homework on it and they feel like the good outweighs the bad. In the NFL it's just so funny because you always want to get to the starting line with all of our guys healthy. That's all anybody cares about in this was like kind of a throwback mentality of they think they can find an edge over the rest of the League. If they have a more physical camp than than the other teams, it's interesting. Yet is interesting and and I do want to because we've also heard Chicago bears talk about last year they gave their players off. Season they didn't play the starters and we've heard Matt. Nagy kind of regret taken that approach and so typically, if you do something and your succeeds, your season isn't successful you kind of reverse the train and go back to the other way. So with the physical practices when you talk about taking us to the ground, the one thing that I would carson is be careful beating your team up too much because no matter what you do with the preparation phase, the speed of the game when it comes to the regular season is so different than whatever you can simulate and practice that if your Gaza beaten up if they're slow, they're going. To have a tough time dealing with a fresher team that plays as a rapid at a rapid pace that really moving up and down the field I'd be curious to talk to each to see what Andy is done and training camp the last few years because when I was with coach didn't Philadelphia they went to the ground way more than we did in Baltimore originally, which would shock people because I think they'd say Baltimore the most physical and Philadelphia maybe throwing the ball bunch you know maybe not no no Andy Reid that was a physical they went. They had more live periods to the ground than we didn't Baltimore like by a lot. That surprise me dead surprise me based on our relationship when we were altogether with the packers for three three or four years micro wasn't what we did. We didn't. We didn't BEAT PEOPLE UP IF ANYTHING DJ I hate to admit like some coaches who think this is crazy. We would go non on seven early. So for people that Donato seventy inside run period, you normally have your office Lanaians linebackers and safeties and that front line and you go and run through it, we will do not seven early. Take off the pads me way to practice and practice rest of the practice with just like jerseys and stuff all just worrying about the pace and understanding to execution. But that the physicality part of it, and that is an old Bill Wall Street I wonder with Andy Reid background being an offensive lineman. If he felt like that approach left his teams, you'll prepared to deal with physical teams because I will say in Green Bay we encountered like the rough and rugged teams. It would take us a little bit to adjusted ramp up a physicality to be able to match him. Yeah. He would do things because you had to it. As you know then you don't really have that anymore. But in those morning full-contact practices, he liked to move the ball. So he would move the ball and go to the ground. So there they were almost it was a lot man where you just be moving the ball and now that's not always with the one. Sometimes that's for you to get full live full speed reps with your twos threes. But yeah. I mean I just remember leaving every going like, wow, what in the world like I did not this is not what I thought I was getting into. This is how they operated now operated on that approach and Kansas City with Marty Schottenheimer whereas school to come three hour practices loss of contact. We're banging and we felt like that gave us an edge. We feel like when we walked onto the field on Sundays against other teams, there were nearly ready for the tempo and the physicality there we were going to play with, and so it just got comes down to your school of thought there is a way to go lie to the ground, but to also have a quick whistle and so you're Kinda manipulate their as the coach. You WanNa be physical you want. To stress that you also to from a psychological standpoint, you want to stand in front of the room and say guys, we're more physical than any other team in an ESA football. The way we practice others can't practice like that. So you also trying to build their confidence in that mentality that when we do kick it off, we're going to be more prepared and ready than other teams. It's an interesting approach I think you're gonNA see teams attack this in different ways. All right before we get to the guys opting out, we're talking about this a little bit early before we came on. The unique idea that the saints have on kind of creating an an individual team bubble go ahead. No I I think the the New Orleans saints are doing something that. Is Different than what we've heard from other teams in. New Orleans, saints of basically trying to put together a bubble they've. Agreed to. Have Basically. A hotel provide their players with rooms for their tier one personnel. So the players, the coaches, some of the medical personnel they WanNa make sure that those. People, are housed in the hotel there in their own rooms their way from everything they're not exposed to the outside world because they believe a shopping talked about the team that can attack this virus and keep everybody away from it. Make sure that all their players are available when they get to kick off, that's the team that is really going to have the advantage by creating this bubble I would say is just like training camp but by creating this bubble in housing their players away from everybody else they may be able to get to the starting line with everyone ready to play, and that could be a huge advantage in this environment. Yeah, I'd be curious if you looked at a breakdown of a team in the saints have seemed to be more veteran team but just kind of us, we kind flippantly throw around like it's different with college in the NFL. These guys go home to their families. Not all of them. Abuse to see like what percentage of guys have you know? A family they're, they're just single a single guy versus being a single guys, wives, living girlfriends those those guys that a little more settled it will be interesting to see how that is I. think regardless of it I think we're seeing and I cannot remember who the player who talked about it from the Miami Dolphins. But he talked about how gas have to hold their teammates accountable and that this year where people talk about family in terms of the team concept, it really means more than it had in the past because you have to be careful what you're bringing back to the family going. Out being in bars being around a bunch of different people and potentially bringing things back to the family into the bubble year that's risky and that's reckless and if you engage in those behaviors, they're going to cast you aside and I know they put in more punitive penalties for guys when it comes to those things. But now more than ever, you have to be very disciplined this year and that discipline has to show up not only on the field. But in what you engage in off to feel, it will be a marathon to see how these guys are able to Kinda stay with it Discipline Yeah that was bobby. McCain and the dolphins. This is my idea actually brought this up with the with somebody the other day. Talking about talking about baseball but I to me I would do it if I was if I was general manager of an NFL team or if I was a head coach of NFL team. Let. Me Think of this idea book because what I would do is every day because this is not something that you can have a lapse in judgment we've seen that baseball you can be an on your best behavior. You know twenty three of the twenty, four hours a day but I mean you're out for fifteen minutes where you're not supposed to be in A. Crowd of people you're not social distancing. You're not you're not wearing a mask. Then here we are in a casino you're in a Bar, and now we've got major issues throughout the organization I would every single day I would have another a different member of the team and it could be the coaching staff or the players like say, for instance, you know you're the. I worked with. Do you just these jags because one announced that Bucky just announced that he's doing work with Jags so I would on Monday Gardner meant you won't you get up there and you can tell us about your grandfather tell us about your grandmother tell us about you know if you've got a young daughter or whatever tell tell us a little bit about that person and then if you finished every single, it could be a two minute thing at the at the end of the at the end of the conversation say guys hurt her Health Mike My Grandmother's health is in your hands. Let's be smart. Next day boom defensive lineman POPs up there. You know my wife has diabetes here. Guys. Her health is in your hands like that daily reminder we are. We are in charge of taking care of large group of people here we have to be smart. You know we have to be smart and I like that idea but I think another thing that will come to play DJ teams that are able to create this camaraderie within the team years ago when I was in Kansas City, what we would do is on Thursdays, we would have A. Film sessions after practice and they would bring in food they will bring in pieces they were bringing in all kinds of sodas and stuff like that where to keep everybody around I think male more than ever those activities are really vital in Green, bay. We used to have so food Friday where they would have a caterer bring stuff up on Friday to keep you around the facility guys wanted engaged and they wanna have that camaraderie that you normally was share outside of the building were nail what you have to do is. You have to get them to have that in the building because in the building you can control that Environ safe. It's the safest place you're going to be a safe bubble. So the teams that are able to bring it in and it may cost more on the budget line right? It may cost more, they were catering and bringing these things in, but you have to give those guys and opportunity to decompress, but you wanted to do it within the sanctuary of your facility because you know they won't be exposed to the other stuff. And look hopefully this way it's set up right now works I know a lot of people have thrown out different ideas of how to do individual bubbles and what teams could do. I did see one that actually Kinda liked. which was worse case scenario right where you have a little bit NFL's a longer season, you can't people are not going to be away from their families for the entire season. That's that's that's too much of an ask but if you built in league wide buys. Every four or five weeks where you can have by where you could. Go be with your family and then come back into your bubble get tested, and then re enter into your team bubble than look it's not ideal. We want to be around your family's every day, but it's a sacrifice. He may be willing to take in the short term to try and get through a season. I thought that was interesting idea. How another idea Dj. We've all seen teams because you've been with the Baltimore Ravens than if they went on playoff runs as we get closer to the playoffs, there's a level of seriousness that begins to happen with the team I believe having a bubble for your team down the stretch will be critical because we understand what the loss of a quarterback or key member could do just think about in the playoffs when we hit the playoffs a guys here's where we're going to do. We're going to bubble up on those. Itself self-sacrifice but for four weeks, we're GONNA quarantine in a hotel. We're GONNA treat this part of the season like training camp everyone lockup in the hotel. So we don't get explosive thing. So can assure that we have everybody. I think that could be a distinct possibility for teams that have real playoff chances and rule title hopes and aspirations. It's interesting man it's again people are trying to figure this out on the fly. I think a lot of teams are paying attention to what other teams are doing. Trying to steal good ideas just as you might try and steal a good play. It's copycat league in every sense of the word. All. Right buck. I want to get to this opt-out thing here. Let's start first of all the NFL side we've seen guys cj Mosey with the jets Eddie Goldman with the bears. Damian Williams with the chiefs you look at all the players from the Patriots with Marcus Cannon Patrick Chung? Dont`a hightower tally they've had a bunch of guys So that's that's a pretty chunk in names we've seen. That have decided to opt out the interesting thing to me was the report that came out today I. Think it might have been pillow Sarah that that that came out with that said, they're going to be able to take the rated number off of this year's Cap, not just the money. So he gave an example, I think it was John James you're making ten million and they had prorated three million on top of that to be spread out over the length of a contract you could save thirteen million on this year's CAP, which you're like I'm looking at the jets. The jets are in a situation where Sam Darnold is is is coming to that point in time we start thinking about an extension marcus maze a safety they could extend this to me makes it a lot more palatable to say if you take cj Moseley's money off the books this year fill that space get one of these extensions done frontload that money, and then you're not any worse shape going forward with the cap this is going to create some opportunities for some of these teams. I would have to win they could science donal or if they have to wait to Adam year, they might have one more year because because there will be there'll be interesting because he would have the biggest thing and I think he would actually be the easiest one to use to feel cj Mosey spot you talk about seventeen million dollars plus whatever the bonus probation is you may be talking about twenty million dollars. How about a few Sun Sam Darnold I'm not saying that you can't based on the rules, but if you could get him a, let's get his money mail. So we can put it on dish used books as opposed to having the weight it could be. As huge event is but you right Marcus may some of the other guys that you could identify on your team that you WanNa. Give those extensions it could happen when we talk about the New England Patriots let's just kind of fast forward to the end of the year. Let's just say the Cam Newton was the starting job and plays at a high love. Dj Come to him with an extension before the end of the season. And gave him a bunch of cash early and then have the cap in relatively good shape going into future years because they gave all his money right now. Well, and see like the jets when I talk about Sam, darnold well, not necessarily saying, you even have to do Sam Darnold. What you can do is you can work some other contracts you know be at new extensions of Marcus, may you can reduce some other deals and you can put their money into this year, which creates more money into next year for. It just allows you to kind of move things around a little bit and be a little more flexible. Yeah. Like the teams that are really good at in terms of manipulating the cat if reserve a lot of space, I mean he's a lot of space for them. If they have some guys had big big cap numbers that opted out in gives them an opportunity to kind of reset because we were worried about how The reduction in the salary cap was going to impact these teams next year and beyond when there you have an opportunity to look at whether reduction could be and begin to envision what does that team going to look like next year when it comes to the core players how can we get those cap numbers in line to be able to handle reduction while also give us enough space to sign some additional firepower. There those guys are working together to cap guys the personnel gas in the coaches be able to understand an dente who are the guys that are central to what they want to get done. Is Pretty funny like this. So I was just typed in just to see if anybody had written anything on this recently I typed in Sam darnold right. So I was going to see what was out there on. What, like the people ask or whatever people also ask you it's like basically what the searches have been the search history for Sam Darnold here's this. Here's a search history for Sam darnold number one what is Sam darnold salary number two how long will Sam Darnold be out number three? What Disease Does Sam Darnold have number four is Sam darnold healthy not great. Not Great there. That's not what you're looking on your search history. Is Definitely Nygard is not exactly what you're looking for but he has an opportunity to play Seo, say the cards stacked against him because I still feel like they need more firepower on the outside for us to really get a chance to see what he can be but. One reasons why we liked him when he was coming out is because we felt like he had the ability to elevate those around him this you will get a chance to see. I. Think. The biggest thing is this is a great opportunity for everyone to evaluate Adam Gates. Adam. Gates. Has a reputation for being a quarterback whisperer and an office of Guru will this year I wanna see what is he able to do to help him donald working with him now can't he elevate him Kenny, get him to play a different level by scheming things up that allowed him to have enough layups to begin to string together completions. That's what I WANNA see from the coach hip this year for. Adam. All Right College side. We've seen these guys opt out. We've Seen Rashad. Bateman, who is the latest one? And then Caleb finally was the first one there from Virginia Tech. Those two big ones we've had kind of the little little dust up there in the PAC twelve. With with what's going on there. So Cassidy Woods decided to from Washington state that was bizarre by the way recording the conversation with this coachman. Whatever's I mean nothing good about it I just just leave it there but but bizarre but and then we have a revamp. From. I haven't done him or looked at him yet. So but I know we've got the two big guys in Buck. With me on this but. Tip of the iceberg man, I'm telling you within the next seven to ten days. I. Think you'RE GONNA to see a bunch more of these guys and I'm not talking about low level players. I. Think WE'RE GONNA. See some some high level dudes decide that it's not worth it for them to play this year. I think we will. I. Think. I don't know if you saw the facebook post from the mom of the Indiana player I did read that here who contracted the disease because I, think I think we've kind of assumed a young people can handle this resilient football players we'll be affected by it. I think they're kind of brought a dose of reality to the celebration very so where I think some of these young athletes that have NFL futures that I would say pretty secured I. think they will weigh the pros and cons of what do I have the game you have talked about this it won't be the the the guys that have the ability to do. This would be the ones that already kind of know where the they fall in the pecking order. The ones that you worry about are the guys that have the potential to develop like the last couple of number one picks that we saw we saw Joe borough development tremendously his final season. I mean we saw Calamari. Develop as kind of like a one star of the year before and we saw Baker Mayfield do it. So for those guys, two guys that are hanging out there to guys who may enter the year with third fourth round grades, guys who developed and pop. Those are the ones that had to be covered because everyone is going to be in their ear telling them their grades are higher than they currently are in. Are they willing to risk This morning had a couple of texts conversations with some VP, player personnel to former Director of player personnel department on how are you going to treat this guy's opt out and we talk hey, this is very similar to suffering. Season in the injury very early in his final season will go back and look at the previous season's tape. We'll grade them based off the film that we have. We'll dig into the character whatever the thing that we can't do. We can't hold a decision against them, but we can always wonder how much would they have developed if they played their final year you wonder when they great on that curve did you great positively owned occur or do you great negatively on the curve because of what you haven't been able to see their final year while it's interesting to me because? You're going to say if we're going to have a draft right now of. Players under the age of twenty five right you know maybe it's maybe it's twenty, four, twenty, five around that age if we were going to do that league wide and you took the quarterbacks out of the mix. Buck. Nick Bosa might be the first or second player picked. Nick. Bosa shut it down his last year at Ohio State shut it down. Didn't affect them at all didn't affect where he was drafted did not affect how he played and to me that is the story that's being pitched these kids first of all. You'd be shocked if you knew how many players already done with agents right now like the deals are done like the top layers. If you looked at the top I betcha, there's probably I'm not even exaggerating I bet you there's seventy five to one hundred players right now that have already have agreements with agents like they have signed anything but they have a verbal agreement they know who's going to represent them. They've had all this time they've met with them and there's nothing illegal about that is not you know you haven't signed any papers but I'm just saying they're already getting advice from agents. They already know where they're going and guys like Nick Bosa that stories being relaid and people are sharing stories like you mentioned what that, Indiana guards mom talking about what he had been through through this and they're saying look. You know maybe maybe you're the twenty four th pick in the draft now maybe if you come back and play, maybe you're a top five pick but maybe again, the three bad outcomes maybe you get cove and maybe get hurt maybe you don't play well, that's three negative outcomes and they look at the one positive outcome as you play better in you up your stock I don't. WanNa be look I love college football as much as anybody I. Hope. All these guys stay and play and self will get a chance to watch him and we have a full college season but I gotta be honest man that that to me if that's my son and an an agent has come to me and presented that and said Look we've talked to teams around the League. Your son is going to be a top two round pick. If he does not play this year if he does play maybe a top ten pick. Apparent saying man I don't know top two rounds and not taking any of the risk sign up. Okay. So let's talk about the big elephants into college football room. Backs travelers just it feels trae lance. If they don't play another snap of college football, how does that impact the draft status? I don't think it to me. I don't think it. I think to me personally I think Justin fields has has more growth potential. I, think all three of them are. Spanish, they're all GonNa go in the top ten. They don't play snap. They're all going to go in the top ten, right so. That's so now because we're both very, let's put it on my parents had. and. Accuser sitting in this situation and we know for with relative certainty, they can be drafted in the top fifteen. Yeah. I had the opportunity to then hire one of the top quarterback gurus. Because we've talked about this offline. I can hotter higher top guru. To work with seven, eight, nine months, we can go do a bunch of different things when it comes to preparing and getting ready for the next level. Is that more advantageous than taking the risk of putting them out there Cova injuries fall off on play. Yeah. I mean. I think is something that the guys have to consider and desks me who loves college football and loves the process but also knowing this is unlike any other year that we've seen. In. College football if it's going to be to stop and start that, you know based on everything to have an opportunity to really get together and really work on your game and you can't really work on your game without playing but I do believe there's some things that you could do that you have to consider in this pandemic world i. I just think you have to and I think is not those players were but we were about the fringe players who may get bad advice they come up before they're really ready that that's the challenge and like I said, if you ask if you asked to the top two, hundred players put the top two hundred players in a room and said how many you guys are top fifty players all two hundred hands would go up that's the problem is you're gonNA get guys out of That world, they're gonNA end up taking this advice and believe in the hype and not coming I'm not saying this for everybody. But I think we're talking about select group of people that it's a compelling argument to say the least and you're not gonNA get any pushback from NFL teams. It's not like you know if you're starting quarterback I don't remember who it was a year or two ago. We had a starting quarterback that elected not to play in a bowl game when he was healthy. And then Gosh who was real real greer and then he played in the and we'll play in the senior bowl right? Play with his team but then he played and he he got a lot of grief. He got a lot of grief for that. You're not get any grief for sitting out in a pandemic nothing. We're beyond those things I think NFL. Teams have also kind of move beyond the first people that began to sit out when Linda for Ned in. Christian. McCaffrey and those guys setup all games we gave them a hard time but then other guys have done an NFL is just to be like okay I get it like that's your choice. We have more than enough to be a valuated. I. Think this would be a situation where we'll see guys elect to opt out and they won't be just look I have conversations and text. Hey you can't hold it against them like this is something that we haven't seen as a health and safety concern. We evaluate them based on what they put on tape. We have to call and do the background stuff whatever but you really can't judge them off of how they played the rest of it is really your projection. So the guys who have good filming the CAN. I can understand it does who are on the bubble. You may have to go out there and play improve to to get the draft raking won't at the end of the day you know what I was thinking of this is the analogy. This is like Hollywood. Okay and so it's you don't call Tom Cruise and tell me he's come in and read for you. You don't. So some of those star players you say, Hey, here's the deal. This is this is your job. If you want you got, we want you we want you in our movie. There's some other players you know what you come in here and read a little bit I. Don't know if I've seen quite enough yet from your acting career to be able to give you this role in my big budget movie. So you come in and read a little bit. Okay. Some people might even have to have a callback you maybe you need play like a full. You come in and I just want you to come and read for like three four games just read for three or four games. I'm a look at you and say, okay, you're out. So Dj desks, the other thing we've talked about this off the air, but there can be some guys who say, okay here's what I do. I'm not quite at the point why can opt out before the season but what if I get three or four games in and I can read some lines mash is coming read some live that's. Three or four games, and then I'm like you know. Good. Got To roll. So we may see some of those things happen it is unprecedented, and also with the player empowerment movement were more players in college football are beginning to understand their power in seizing upon power we may see. Many may be different all the way we may see some guys opt up before macy's guys kind of walk away from the team after, and that could be problematic for NFL teams looking at it like man. I get it but you Kinda quit on your teen depending on the circumstances and then you see some guys take all the way through to in. But we will see players do a bunch of different things that make choices and decisions. Based on their health, but also based on where they think they can sit in the pecking order of the NFL draft and one thing I wanNA reminds people that are listening like you might be a situation like we're in. We're in comfortable life right? We're we've been blessed. We're we're we're doing fine. Some of these guys have come from a situation bucky where there are a lot of people relying on them to be able to help their situation. So it's I I just think there's a lot of people that sit in their comfortable life and say be loyal to your team they gave. You this do you need to give them nat like hold up now man? No this is this is the ticket for some of these people was what they can do professionally and to put that in jeopardy I don't know how you can tell somebody to do that I to me that's up to them. Yeah I. Don't think you can have a judgment and also I think it's tough to really weigh in without knowing their family circumstance. You don't know who was in their their house. You don't know what they're what potentially they could be exposing their parents, their kids there Family too think this is one where you have to be very, very careful before you kinda lob an opinion or a high take on what a player decides to do because we just don't know because there's still a lot to be determined on the long term effects of the pandemic. I think we just have to kind of wait and respect everyone's wishes when it constantly decisions that he may now to me, it's. Again I I don't want to hear from people with the give me Oh you need to do this. You need to do that. All bets are off. There's no rules right now it's up to you individually to make the best decision for yourself going forward. So we love college football. I. Hope we get a chance to see college football I would love it if we had all the great players out there on the field. I get it I understand it and I think this is the tip of the iceberg with these couple names you know I. Think we're GONNA see some more here in the next week plus Oh absolutely I think we'll continue to see some of these guys kind of by out because as as a college season is continued to be pushed into mid to late September. I, think more guys are going way in there also have more voices in the ear that may convince them. You know it may be best for me to sit on this on just training prepare for the next love. Right. I do want to announce this new podcast that's coming out starting next week. It's called the hard knocks podcast hosted by our buddy. Peter. Schrager hard knocks. A TV.

It's GonNa be kind of like he's GonNa be our Andy Cohen kind of recapping. The show here is going to be fun. You should be a Lotta Fun it'd be. Interesting to see obviously, you have more access to the charges being down there being around their camp but whatever like I'm just curious to see how this gets done and I think the behind the scenes footage of what guys are experiencing, how different this training camp is for everybody will be fascinating I. I can't wait. I'm excited about the football season even though we kind of have this cloud of uncertainty hanging over top I just think this is going to be a year where the best coaches, the coaches who are adaptable to coaches who have really good plants and getting there guys ready to play. I. Think they go stand up for the rest of the pack No. Well. Let's Let's wrap things up here. This was fun man just again I love chatting with you man we always come into these shows with our ideas of what to do and you never know where it's going to go but that's the beauty about podcast over the heck we want to go. We can just take it. Is Funny. The next time we chat I do want to get the breakdown of those players because those are some really good players I studied. Bateman. For. Good players 'cause use me statements are really good player. Did you think he had big time juice I thought he was not either I thought he played four five and some people said I guess he's GonNa test better than that but he's a good player is good I mean it's funny. In the pockets but let's just talk about. F are like the thing that I wrote in my notes chain mover he's a guy that does a really good job of working and doing birdie dirty work in between the has before you talking about that, some of the best that I've seen here's one hand catches his ability to come down his hand. Eye Coordination is exactly what you dream of four wide receiver catches any and everything that is all around him and I love your comparison because you compare him to Michael Thomas. I'm GonNa give you another one. Aj. Brown. Because when I lifted him, I didn't see the Blazer and it reminded me of Aj Brown because when Aj Browser Oh missiles like I don't know how fast years but then Dj baby average over twenty yards of reception. I mean there's ridiculous amount of yours per catch and so look at Aj Brown this year in the League for someone who I didn't think was a burner even though he ran four hundred to combine his ability to really create these explosive place, I Rashad Bateman, being able to do that as well. I love going back through the notes and and looking at some things as we're talking and listen to you. He's such a sharp route runner. He never drifts which again you see. So much of that at the college level guys aren't precise I it. It is what it is the way the game's played there, but he was crisp. He was very crisp doesn't drift. He works in traffic. He's got kind of that subtle quickness at the top of his route and he's GonNa have the Dow in a little bit of the physicality down the field but much rather be able to. Rein, that in than to get somebody to be a little tougher, a little more physical and again you mentioned it but just the hands, the hands are outstanding and then also I wrote down for receivers you don't say this a lot but I have I wrote FBI FBI, FBI FBI like he's got incredible football intelligence broken plays being able to feel leverage like he just very instinct for those that don't know FBI stands for football instincts he is dripping with with instincts. He has a lot of things that. You really like and I like the fact that he played on the backside ex but he also win the slot some. Feel like he really showed you. He do a variety different things at this on the Balaji you the vertical port catching the ball over the middle of the field I thought he was physical echo raises enough to catch the ball inside everybody's not built to go inside and run the digs and the slants and the Bang Gates out thought his courage to the catch point stood out in. A row down very good one after catch crafty wiggle power. He can give you a variety of different ways to continue to get out of that that I tackle and I think in this game if you can get the ball to someone under the parameter and if they can make a defender to miss, that's when the big place. Bateman I saw that repeatedly show up on tape. Yep. The only thing I wrote down is. On some rare occasions, I, he got stuck a little bit and press. But he's got to strengthen the quickness to be able to improve in that area that just come with with more experience yet though award about Kayla for the what'd you think about it? So Kayla Farley. I've done nineteen of my I look scouting reports that you can go to nfl dot com slash your Mike and read all these reports on these top college players I've done nineteen he is number twenty. So he is. He is literally my last guy so he's GonNa come out later this week. So I'm GonNa Watch tonight. Or Tomorrow Okay I don't want to influence but here's what I'll say without really talking about his game. He is the prototypical corner that teams like Seattle Jacksonville, San Diego Nothing Ego la the chargers and and Doug was look forward because he's big he's he can kentucky his ball skills. It'd be interesting when we had that conversation about him because there's some things that are really really like but I also had a couple of questions and I want to see if you have questions although same aspects. Okay. Well, let's let's TVD that's. Let's get that on the next podcast. I. Love as we always are in the verge wrapping these things up, and then we ended up, we have more stuff we want to talk about it just tells us that football season's almost here. That's what it tells us. Yeah for Sure Ben, I'm excited about it. Always, good conversation though. See Mark is trying to start beef here. He he just put on our little chat here padres because the padres came off of a win over the dodgers but mark I've explained this many times I don't say anything I don't say anything until the series is over after the series I might something good happens I might say something after I'm not saying anything in the middle of a series have have you ever played today like when we're taping this I don't know if they played. A The game was right in front of us. I don't know what happened last night or any of those other things like today. Everyone zero zero today, right. Kim We. Agree. Mookie mookie did not play in the game. So that was big for the for the padres but. To me the best we asked Dave. Roberts. Who would be the best football player on the on the dodgers and he said Mookie Betts. To me if you haven't seen a lot of people watch the if you've seen the padres play Fernando tat ts could play football man that duties an athlete do he didn't he hit a bomb bomb? Yeah. He hit one of Bueller a curve ball. He's right handed. Out About fifteen rose up on the right field line. On the line opposite field at Buehler's. After the game is like I don't know I mean that's that's normal. Not supposed to be. To Take it to the opposite field where power like that. But he has what? What's your take on the uniforms I love him I love him and the majority of people love them the pinstripes, the white, the white and Brown Pinstripe the home unions is pretty sweet. But ninety percent of the People Nineteen, ninety, five percent of the people love Guy Haberman. From the PAC twelve network and our buddy up in the bay area hates him but he's a giants fan. It is what it is. So midday coma scheme I, remember I remember as a kid, it was brown. That's. Like. But in the pinstripes new, that's new. That's a new school. So we've got kind of old school colors with kind of a new school look. Darryl. GWYNN and Garvey one. They have pinstripes in Benito Santiago that was. That was Around Brown. Yeah. Okay. That was. Uniform this this crisp white with the Brown. pinstripes big. It's a big dig. I like it a little bit not a bad uniform. You'll feel good I feel good about my combination I was charges or not San, Diego anymore. But you know growing up the teams that local teams for the padres in the chargers. Now call the charger games. I'm still huge padre fan I feel like my uniform combination with my two teams is pretty strong right now. Nice uniform vote both the chargers new uniform unreal. They look so good I can't wait to see that. Polo that you're gonNA. Have to sport from the State Hell. They haven't sent them to me yet. I got a text. Those guys I need somebody get my new gear my workout gear. Wrap this thing up man I do want to thank you guys. We've had a bunch more get on apple podcast and leave us a review in inner raking. We do appreciate you doing that. If you haven't, I would encourage you to do.

Forty I did an interview this week with Ashleigh brewer of ABC seven. She now works for Espn it's good to catch up with her. I did a show on ESPN radio's weekend with her and we talked to Keith Olbermann about Rob Manfred and Major League baseball and good God did keep just go in on Rob Manfred and Major League Baseball. So it was so good that I wanted to play a chunk of it for you at the end of the show. So we'll have. Have that for you today, it's all brought to you by straight talk wireless full-court cellphone coverage. You need just forty five bucks. A month gets the unlimited plan with twenty gigs is be dead in two G. for up to fifty percent less than the big carriers. Only at Walmart savings may vary see terms conditions at straighttalk dot com I want to start with the Lakers real quick before we get into the PAC, twelve stuff here is the situation. So the Lakers lose to the raptors. And again, we have a situation where Anthony Davis was passive in the fourth quarter. Ad Only took seven shots in the entire game one in the fourth quarter. Now granted. TORONTO'S ENTIRE SCHEME ON defense is to basically flood or double team. The superstars in Lebron and enforce everyone else to hit shots and the Lakers went ten of forty from three. But in the fourth quarter with the game tied with six minutes and thirty eight seconds to go the raptors, Autobahn scored the Lakers. The rest of the way by fifteen points, cow Kuzma couldn't defend Kyle lowry on switches. Alex crusoe turned over the ball like three times in that fourth quarter. Anthony Davis was unbelievably passive Lebron. was moving the ball, but couldn't get a lot of his shots going. He did get a couple of shots going early in the quarter. But Anthony, Davis particularly was. Man You had an issue. He and listen. I'm just saying that you know I about this, the Lakers Championship. Hinges on Anthony Davis because I. Feel like Lebron will figure it out over seven game series, but I'm I'm telling you this is about Davis standing in the way of dominating and potentially hoisting a seventeenth trophy for the Los. Angeles Lakers now, Laura Lebron there's some Lebron sound there about being asked if They're still trying to get their legs back. Let me hear that sound from Lebron in the post game from the raptors because I'd like to hear his response to that particular question. Think. It could be That's individual. Every individual offer me. Personally, I'm pretty good I was trump with the ball and Tom Sawyer trying to run offense. Saas, as well. So. We've been for for for a while on the game continue to come. As as a tournament continues on, so I'm not I'm not too. Worried about that are shooter show. We got some great guys that can make shots from the perimeter and it will make. So Look Lebron painted a rosy picture there Bergman and I'm not saying that after two games all is lost and the Lakers play against the jazz today, would you can catch here? Seven ten. ESPN. Game starts at six windows. Our Coverage Begins Greg. Bergman's the corporate time stealing weasel here. That would know that. Stealing. PREGAME game starts at four thirty without Leila at Michael Tops okay. So Mason Ireland Ninety minutes. Today is what you're. Ninety minutes, and then the pre-game show with sleep and Michael at four thirty showed here. Are. You are you starting to get a little worry? I'm telling you, I have been, I have been very steadfast. Okay. From the beginning of the season that the difference between the Lakers winning a championship losing a championship will hinge upon Anthony Davis performances particularly late in. Games and. Earth at least through two games, it has been an issue. What is your level of concern? Too. High level concerns probably about an eight. Sorry, probably about a five six right now, just because things are going to happen I. Think the biggest thing that I saw from that game is that is just the ability to guard elite guards and you're not calicoes He's not built for an elite guard. Most guys are not built for guys like Kyle lowry Chris Paul, or Damian Lillard, those types of guys, and that's where avery Bradley really came into. Handy there was he was the guy that was able. Able stick with elite guards like that and not having him. There's not anybody else on the team that is able to do that. So when we play teams like the clippers that don't have that elite quick guard, it fits better into the Lakers Lou Williams is pretty pretty elusive. You know what I mean. It's not like he has on the second team show, but yeah, but it's but he's still a big I. think that a coup could be could be able to stick with them just a little smaller. Smaller guys, like Damian, Lillard Chris Paul those types of guys and in lowry basically destroyed the Lakers. Destroy effort vanity to yeah I mean towards the end. Vanfleet. A bunch of threes at the end of the game. Laura now, are you going to do what I'm going to do here? which is we heard Greg say eight first and then go down to a five. Do you do you believe I miss high? You believe he's he's being stubborn mail. He really means in eight, but then he realized eight would be too high. So he went back down to five elite. Wrong. One hundred, Greg is flip flop per we already know. No No. Absolutely not. You tend to flip up a lot. Never. I, don't. There's never flip-flopping. I could probably go to the. Audio, she does have all the Audio Greg you may want to be careful. Of all the Laura, where are you with me? Are You with me and Anthony Davis? Yeah, you're starting to get a little worried you. It's not like. It's not like you're like, oh. My God. It's going to be a disaster. No, nobody's saying that, but it's like, oh, boy like fourth quarter winning time where the hell are you. This has been a thing. Yeah. I think he's like that guy that puts an all the work in a relationship really early on and things he could just of. Fly. By the rest of it is like bro You gotTa. Keep putting in the work we needed win. We needed to show up. We need you to be there and you're just cruising and we can't have that. I'm a little worried a little worried I. I think I think. He'll. He'll snap out of it. I think Vogel will also do, and by the way, let's not. Let's I. Think Frank has done a fantastic job. Frank is probably one of the top. This season, his performance is a top five coaching performance. This year I don't think there's any question about that. But let's not take that off of frank a little bit in that particular game where you know and he would say this to himself, I don't think that. I, don't think this is being overly critical of Frank Vogel I. Just think it's the stating the obvious. You know it's the coach's job also in addition to Anthony, Davis needing to be more aggressive to maybe get him put in better positions to allow himself to be more aggressive fair Greg. Yeah. Absolutely, and he was kind of non existent. I thought I thought personally that Dwight, Howard, was on the floor too long in the fourth quarter. That was able to and they needed to go smaller quicker. Yes. Right. Anthony. Davis. The five instead of having Dwight Howard out there for basically the entire fourth quarter was a problem. Yeah. So, it's going to be interesting to see how they bounce back against the jazz tonight and look maybe it was just a letdown game after the clippers, maybe it could be just as simple as that, but we'll. We'll have to see the other thing I want to get into is the PAC twelve. Greg, you've seen this story I would presume, yes. Of course, it is a tremendous story. Okay. It is a really important story. Story. So for those of you don't know the story Laura, there is some sound there from Adam Written Berg, who is one of our college football insiders. He does a really good job. He covers the PAC twelve as well, and we're going to talk to Bruce Feldman about it. I could sit here and just go in give a million different reasons as to why this thing is is going the way it's going. But I think Adam wool surmise it in a much quicker way in in less than a minute or two. But here's what I will tell you basically here's the list of demands the PAC twelve players want before returning to play. They want covert health and safety protocols that shouldn't be an issue at all that absolutely should be at the forefront. Okay. Of all of this, because here's the deal. If Your College football, you want these players back because you need their money, you need the money that they generate and the players are idiots. They know the schools need them right now more than they need the schools right now. So this is actually a good time I believe to get the. To get some of this stuff done. Now, look I will say this of this list of demands, there are some things that I think are absolutely. No brainer should be should get done. There are a couple of them. They're like, I. Don't know if I see that happening and then there's some stuff in the middle that I think can be worked out, and if you're the players and again, this is a negotiation. Because remember college players don't have a union like professional sports players do so if they can get the stuff in the middle done to. The majority of that stuff. This is great for them show. Here's the list of demands, the PAC twelve players, covert health, and safety protocols. no-brainer that that should be easy. That isn't even an issue that makes perfect. Sense void. Cova. Thousand Nine, hundred waver of liability because remember these schools what these kids to sign a waiver that if you get sick, it's basically on you not our fault, not our problem. Yeah. That needs to get done to. There's no doubt. which includes mandatory safety measures. For, covert NBA, and monitored by a third party which I like that's smart to. Next thing, preserve all-sports by eliminating excessive expenditures, eliminate bonuses, and use endowments to Preserve Sports. So in other words now look I like this one on the surface greg, but the reality is, yes, I like for Larry, Scott. Salary. To come down I. Think the coaches in D. salaries should come down, but I think that that's not going to be easy to come about and secondly what I would say to this is. Using. Dowman, endowment money is pretty much earmarked from the go. So I think that that is going to be a bit of a challenge for sure. Yeah. I. Mean. There's all these when it comes to the money portion of all that stuff they're going to have a tough time. No matter what. But I just love what they're doing and I love the fact that they're all banding together and they're all coming together saying that we want to be healthy and we they're not. It's not just about them either at their teams that are playing right now. It's about all the other although other programs at the school to and all the other minorities at the school to right and and also that it's all the people that are going to come into school later on. To blaze, yes they're trying to blaze a path for the rest of the way. The college football were generally called sports where right general right I think that's incredible. So so that's number three on their list number four and racial injustice in college sports. That's this go do that includes forming a task force at each school, create a fund from two percent of the conference revenue to help with financial aid for low-income black students from pack twelve that that should be easy to do too I. Think PAC twelve also create a black college athletes summit where three players from each team they meet with the Board of regions and the PAC twelve commissioner and. Every single year in some sort of like you know event, right? All that stuff should be done. That should be no brainer stuff, their next economic freedom and equity medical insurance that covers them for up to six years after playing in college plus name image likeness name image likeness is already being taken care of I. Think they can do a better job because really if you if you remember the story of name image likeness right now is only three states that are definitely doing it. Now, it's the three big. Big Ones California Texas and Florida. Okay. But that stuff I think we'll get sorted out the medical insurance covering them for up to six years after playing in college. This is for all athletes I million percent behind that. Because not only does it help the kids if they get seriously hurt or whatnot, but it also helps them if they want to, for example, start their own businesses, right? That means they don't need insurance right away because for their first six years, the NCWA or the PAC twelve in this case. Or the conferences will cover their medical insurance. So I like that and I think that can get done. That's one of those middle ground things the next one, fair market pay and freedoms. Which means a fifty percent revenue split. That is never going to happen. Here's why fifty percent revenue split just for football means. You're not going to be able to fund all the other sports. So considering all the stuff before this is about including all the other sports and getting back all the other sports including, for example, Stanford, which eliminated like a dozen sports that revenue split isn't going to work for that so that if they're going to revenue split, which I don't think is going to happen. They're going to have to come up with a much lower number than that. If they WANNA, fund all the other programs six year scholarship to pursue Grad school I liked that by the way coaches. In the Coaches Association and the NC Double A., they want five years. At least. So they're close on that I think the coaches and the players can unite on that. Eliminated policies that limit free speech, charitable activities or other campus activities. Obviously, football players are athletes in general in college can't really do anything, but go to school and practice their sport I'm with them on that. That should be a no brainer one, a one time transfer without punishment. I'm totally down with that coaches can move whenever they want be able to come back. If undrafted. Absolutely, if you're undrafted, you should be allowed to come back to school and then of course. Course, to process if you get in trouble on Campus Chore You of Course Everyone should be allowed due process. So the key here is to prioritize, there'll be things that the PAC twelve is mentioned concede and others that are non starters, but the stuff in the middle, some of the stuff that we discussed, there can be significant in the progress that these players seek not only for football, but for all the sports and the people come in behind them.

Best Business at covering college football is going to join us here in just a second to talk about the PAC twelve. Twelve situation. It's time for straight talk brought to you by straight talk wireless. No contract, no compromise bruce. Thank you so much for joining us here, Bruce, feldman, of course of Fox sports and the athletic with this year. Thank you so much for joining us. So I just went over in the last segment before you came on the list of demands here, and my initial take away is that. I think the players will have to prioritize. There are some things here. That are no brainers. And there are a few things that are non starters, but I think there's a lot of stuff that there's some middle ground on that I. Think the players can make headway on here. In regards to not only themselves but other athletes across the board in College Sports, and of course, the the next group of kids coming beyond them. I'll. What are your thoughts on their list of demands? Well I think you're right. George. I think there are some stuff that people are gonNA look and go okay. That's outrageous. That's not GonNa Happen, and then there's some other things that I. Think People look and go. Okay. That's probably more reasonable from talking to people for our story on the athletic that went up a little bit ago. One of the one of the challenges I think people within the PAC twelve wonder about is who's going to be doing the negotiating here because there's a lot of stuff that you have to really sort. Sort out. It's really complicated. Doesn't mean some of these things can happen, but it's what are the processes are going to be in places, and some of these other things about the revenue sharing people would just kind of rolled or is it at that? I? Think because they go. That's just not realistic, and then I think some of the conversations that have happened internally from from my reporting from what I understand is when people have mentioned endowments and things like that, I'm not sure how clear they are on how those things actually work. Yeah. The financial stuff seems to be the part. That's the biggest issue because as it always would be not. As you pointed out, there's not much of maybe there's not an understanding like the fifty percent revenue split. Well, it seems like they're taking on this task, not only the hell football players, but to help all-sports right, and if that's the case of fifty percent revenue split is clearly not going to work. So. Things like that I definitely think need to be tweaked or eliminated. But I think if they can I think honestly, Bruce, they could probably get the majority of the other stuff out here outside of. The revenue split I think is going to be a big issue. Obviously. and. Really everything else I think for the most part is at least fair game to discuss. Yeah I think again, you know the the revenue share I. Think the one is the one of the things that's grabbing eyeballs and one of the people I talked to yesterday had said okay. We'll hear the questions you have to ask somebody on that and how good is your finance team? How good is your accounting team? There's a lot of stuff that is gonNA happen there and I think that what? I. Think would kind of wear. The rubber meets the road on. This is not just how the PAC twelve and Murray stops reaction is going to be but. Trying to gauge how big this movement is in terms of not necessarily just players who will re tweet some of their teammates who are who are actively involved but also saying. Okay. It's one thing to say you support it and it's another thing to say, will you opt out and not play because of it and I? Think that's the part where. A lot of people don't have a break read off right now, and I, think it's it's look. It's worth noting that one of the people who's behind remote huma he was involved in the Kain colter situation at northwestern years ago. He also is involved from what I'm told in the UCLA situation that that kind of blew up a little bit and the La Times. about two months ago, and so I. I think the question is Not. How real it is. But just how much weight is actually behind it and where it goes from there because there's no doubt that it's going to pick picked up a lot of momentum on social media, and while that's without while that's real I think it's been trying to get people to try to assess. Okay. What do we make of this as it goes forward I as how the PAC twelve is going to have to try to sort it out? Bruce Feldman joining us here of the athletic and of course, foxsports support the athletic support journalism subscribe to the athletic. Washington state's head coach has kind of been embroiled in a bit of a controversy here because he allegedly told one of his wide receivers that if you wanted to opt out for Cova, reasons that was one thing. But if he's aligning with the PAC, twelve player unity group that would create a quote unquote issue for him and he wouldn't be allowed. To be part of the program, basically, what is the latest on that reporting there bruce? Yeah. I talked to him. Yesterday George, after. That's started to get circulated around and when I say circulars before the the tape recording or before the Dallas Morning News transcript wind up and I felt like, all right. I kinda understand what he's saying where he's saying I'm not cutting player because he's aligned. This is what he told me because of. him opting out for health reasons and and this particular player cited health reasons. But then it did seem like the misspeaking, what is like what is? Is there something here that is just doesn't sound quite right and I I really don't know how how that's a further unfold. If you're a patch on the D, I mean, it's not a great look right now for Washington state in the face of that, just because of you have this transcript out where. It just seemed like, okay. Well, if you're if you're aligned with them, that is that part of my reasoning because I think if he had stopped where where he said if you opt out I understand and that part I'm not sure anybody would have had a problem with it because they're going to honor scholarship and his point as he related to me was. Well if you're, you can't be around the team if you don't feel comfortable with the help conditions, and why are you going to be around keep training and and keep doing everything, but just not getting on the plane for a handful of the Games if we have them, it's the part about. Well, if you're aligned with this boycott as PAC twelve coach and they're trying to figure out what exactly that means are there ramifications and repercussions for that? That's the part where. Where you know I think they need to clarify and say, look this is either we said this and we shouldn't have said this or we said this and we didn't mean for it to to come out the way it did I mean either way. It's not a great. It's not a great look in this in this climate right now. Yeah. No question about it bruce. Feldman. Joining us here, Fox sports and the athletic support, the athletic support journalism subscribe to the athletic. What do you think gets done here? Like if you had to granted none of us have a crystal ball, bruce, but I'm your as informed as anyone with this stuff like. What do you think absolutely gets done out of all these list of demands which are the ones that you say to yourself. These are no brainers. They're not gonNA have to worry about this stuff. Well some of the things that you know again, I brought up that UCLA's thing from two months ago would Ra- Mogi Huma, and there was a a former player who's involved and it felt like it was a big deal and I'm not saying it was there was nothing to it, but they talked about these player demands that were already actually in the works happening. So I think when some of the things are in there about about having your scholarships protected. Protected. And some of salute things and some of the safety matters I think they will be heard I think they will be heard on on the social justice runs because I. Think Honestly I, think the PAC twelve is probably more aligned with with with with that probably already. Then most of the other power five princes are or some of the other power five conferences are and I think. So some of those steps I think are in place the parts where. It's I don't WanNa say it's going to be negotiation here for Larry Scott. But I, think there's going to be a lot of things where he's GonNa go okay. We want your voice. We want your input I. Think they they get the message but I think a lot of the coaches like and this is the part which I think maybe loss especially when you know we talk about Nick Role of its from it I talked to coaches yesterday in the PAC twelve were I. agree with a lot of the things they're saying this is the they're going over our heads, which is fine in this regard, but a lot of the things that they're advocating for the feel like are reasonable now. Now the revenue sharing one. Almost people look at and go. Okay. That's not how this this kind of thing works necessarily in there. But when you start talking about endowments and things like that, it doesn't line up. But when it comes to some of the other thing, even if it's better healthcare in in some of those I, think the PAC twelve and I think other parts of college football. We'll will I think we'll try to address those better especially in light of what's going on. Now with players don't know the long term effects potentially of of covid nineteen and I think that there's just the already a lot of issues that have come to the fore in the last few years about. The Lai the wellness of college athletes, and whether that's the physical health or even mental health component. I, think there's a lot of people who genuinely want to address that. So I think on that fun. I think they will make make make progress. What is your best guess as to what happens with college football they. Really. GonNa. Try to play in the fall or do you think this could get punted to the spring as some have suggested. I think they're really gonNA try to play I. Think the thing that that gives would give them pause. Georgia's we only know portions about schools, what they're what they're saying that they've found in there. How many players have tested, positive. Who's APE symptom attic. It's not. We've heard stories of. Players, that schools have said whether for hip a- purposes of not said it or for a variety of other reasons why? Maybe there's been some other issues. If somebody had to go to the Er some severity I think if there are issues that arise where. Players or people part of as part of the team whether it staffers, our coaches star have have more significant issues on the health i. think that would give people pause especially on the in the university president's level, but the the read I would have, and maybe this is not not the right one. But these conference commissioners who have a lot of influence and yes. Yes. They're they're supposed to be listening to medical experts. But if they're being told that they the schools in their in their conferences have not had severe cases I. think that would probably that's probably giving them a little more confidence to go forward because I know from talking to some trainers around the country, they feel like they have a little better handle on how? How to deal with Kobina the players taking it more seriously in their responsibility, not to not to go out to bars, maybe not to do some of those things that maybe the regular students would be more inclined to do, but they do worry about what happens when the regular students come back. Then when the regular students come back if there's a surge and then then. That carries over the football program. I think that's going to be a part where they're going to be monitoring closely and I think they're going to also monitor very closely. What happens with baseball is that baseball can keep on track that's a positive sign. It struggles than I think then that's something that is going to be hard for them to ignore. Bruce. Feldman best. The business at covering college football for Fox sports and the athletic subscribe to the athletic. Support, Journalism Bruce you the best man. Thank you so much of the time as always stay healthy. Stay. Safe. You to always a pleasure George. Thanks for having me. You got it. Take Care Ears Bruce Feldman with this year. He mentioned Major League Baseball. Rob Manfred. Making big claims, we'll get to that in just a second plus the good and the bad for the dodgers. This weekend coming up in three minutes down here on ESPN presented by Progressive Insurance, all our guests like Bruce Feldman appear via the Shell Pennzoil performance line. He was great as always if you missed that, go to the Sodano show podcast and subscribe to the podcast there. We always appreciate you do that and. A. MEANS GONNA join us in eight minutes? We'll talk to a mean about the weekend that was in the bubble including the Lakers. Anthony Davis is passive nature in the fourth quarter through two games. The NBA's back tune in tonight as Lucan the mavs host harden in the rockets presented by indeed coverage begins at five thirty, Pacific on most ESPN radio. Stations, but you can hear it on the APP, if you don't want to listen to the Laker game, if let's say you are clipper fan and you want to find out what the rockets are doing and the Mavs you can listen that way. So. Anyway. So means going to join us there. What did you make real quick of what Feldman had to say? Bergman, before we move onto baseball. I mean I thought it was interesting that he thinks that there's some parts of that demands that are just GonNa be like no zero chance that it's going to come with him on that. Yeah. Yeah. I mean it's. He's right. But it just the first time I read through it was like, okay. Makes Sense makes sense makes sense makes sense makes sense. But but it's what I'm telling you like the money part of it doesn't make sense though Greg like endowments earmarked. And and fifty percent of the revenue. If the their their purpose is to help bring back sports across the board and help all the athletes across the board beyond college football if you're taking fifty percent of the revenue sharing. You're. Not Gonna be able to help those sports like you. It's just simple math, right? No, no, it looks. It makes total sense was just saying that was the interesting part to it to me. That made me think about it at a different way, and it's it would go the opposite way of what the players want. They WANNA help every sport. But then in essence by getting the fifty percent revenue, they would be hurting other sports. Yeah. Everything else should be good to go everything else should be like. They're the outside of those two things. Everything else should be on the table for them I. Don't think there's any question, and if the PAC twelve doesn't commit to that stuff, then I think that there could be some issues, but to Bruce's point, the PAC, twelve is one of those conferences that it's like, Hey, we kind of agree with all this stuff already you brought toward said Shit, we'll work on it but work on on it with you like we will do this. But good on the players because now's the time to do that. Anyway. Major League Baseball Rob. Manfred. So Rob Manfred, this weekend told call ravitch okay. I want to get the exact tweet up because I wanNA I. WanNa Talk to you about their best friends. Now by the way, Carl ravaging rob Manfred for rabbits gets everything from Manfred. Well, yeah. But call ravages really good. He is next bad thing. I'm just like you. So here's what ravage. Urge US me Manfred told Ravitch on Saturday Afternoon Commissioner Rob Manfred tells me we are playing the players need to do better but I'm not a quitter in general and there's no reason to quit. Now, we have had to be fluid, but it is manageable. First of all, why are you blaming the players? Like this is on you to your the commissioner who created a terrible plan, right? Like you created a plan where there there are protocols in place, and yes, the players aren't following those protocols, but even those protocols aren't necessarily the right plan like I don't know travelling. Like that part of it seems silly that he is just completely omitting himself from the equation of blame. It drove me nuts when I saw the first thing. That's why are you calling after the players? The players need to be better. Yes. Of course they do. But how about you rob? Manfred. Don't allow players to choose whether they're going to play or not that day. Right? It'll the pandemic, right? That's something where you could have stepped in and said, Hey, you know what? There's too many positive tests. You're not playing today simple cesium. Blaming the players cut every time. He talks I roll my eyes and just like tweet just stop just go away. He says he's not a quitter. How about you just quit your job anyway and let somebody else take over that actually knows what they're doing. Can Stay? Greg. When there I mean, you really don't like. Gwen when they talk about like head coaches and they say, you know this guy may just be better as like an offensive coordinator. Even for Nader, an assistant coach, he was a great number two for Major League baseball because he's like a shrewd negotiator and he's an attorney, he doesn't have the personality I think or even. The. Even. The proper temperament, right? To, be the number. One guy be the face of the sport. Not. Be a lawyer. Just be the attorney for the. Yes. That's a great spot. For you're doing a good job. You worked with the Players Association, well to make to get things done for baseball, but once you took over, everything has gone wrong. Just absolutely everything that he could have done. He's done incorrectly. So yeah, it's time to go backwards step. So played. Kershaw felt good. Let's talk about good things. Were you happy with his with his performance this weekend? Yeah, he was great. He went three three no hit innings to start off the game, and then he only give a couple hits. I thought he looked fantastic striking guys out his philosophy was somewhere around ninety, two, ninety three was sexually up from where it's been over the last couple of years. Look if that's the Clayton Kershaw that we're going to get. I'm totally happy with that guy. Yeah. And Mukhi bets. Not. So great in the sense of he busted his finger. So he's Day to day. We're all today but but he you know what things had picked up for him a little bit like remember you know his first couple of games he was in, and then you know he he's he had come around at least at the plate particularly that throw he made on it Saturday night that he made where he he threw it from the corner right field and just like drilled a guy at third base. Could Sell Martin and I, believe it was Saturday and yeah, that was an absolute gun. So now you've got a guy in right field mookie betts that can do that, and then a guy at center field in cody bellinger that can do the exact same thing, but to home or any base outfield is incredibly good. Yes, and you're right. mookie Betts was all was all was figuring it all out. He was hitting the ball hard. He was. He was hitting getting hitting home runs, doubles all of a sudden started to click for him again, and then in cody bellinger was kind of the same way with his two run home run earlier. Yesterday and. They're signed look scary again. I'm hoping that movies. Okay. Yeah. I. Think he'll be fine if it's just date, he'll let me grab call real quick before we go to a mean Chris in Chris what's up? Hey Good Morning George and first of all welcome back to the morning men. Voice in the more. Thank you. Avi Shifting to afternoons beginning on August seventeenth. I don't know if they told you that already. But on August seventeenth, BNL'S GOP starting at four after. Mason. In Ireland. Oh. Okay. Well, I'll be shifting what you. That's fine. Great. Thank you. A couple of quick points why I don't think the PAC twelve players have the leverage that they think they made because I. think it'd be like NFL football where they'll just get the next person to play behind. You know get the juniors of the sophomore play and secondly I. Think they have a chance as as as has been said regarding the public health issues as well as the social reform because, hey, you got the rebel flag out of NAFTA, but the money items have issue with particularly I think healthcare because that's got to be required to all title because title nine that's required to all sports and healthcare's expensive. Maybe they go to two years after graduation but it's expensive. My daughter we pay for my daughter almost three thousand dollars a year for healthcare though there might be something that's negotiable, but the public. Policy Items I. Think they have a really good shot on, but the money probably is not so much. Yeah. I'm with you. I think that the money stuff well, I saw the math doesn't even add up on some of that stuff and thank you for the call Chris and I think that's part of it and then, but I'm with you the healthcare is going to be an interesting sticking point. I. Think they win six because you wanna go hi and then maybe meet in the middle like three. But I'm with you I. DO think that would be smart i. think it would be smart i. also, I like the part of extending scholarships to six years to help them go to Grad school if they don't play sports beyond the requisite amount of time that they're, they're I like all that stuff I do think all that other stuff is definitely on the table, we'll ask him amine a mean. Winter Georgia Tech, he went to a big time college school. He was former MBA, a scout. Enough insiders, we'll talk NBA. We'll ask him about the PAC, twelve stuff as well. We're back in two minutes Sodano with seven ten espn presented by pennzoil synthetic motor oils made from natural gas. It gives you unbeatable engine protection. The proof is in the pennzoil hasn't friend of the program, ESPN NBA insider for an office insider giving us the straight talk brought to you by straight talk wireless. No contract, no compromise. Now, I mean you and I were talking during the break and you have a hot take already. Oh, amine already had a hot take during the break. I did. was like, okay. Let me hold on. Let me let me set it up. You're in the break, and I'm like Oh man. He Raptors already on Mba a man I'm so happy and you said. I heard life it already because it's like ten thirty. What? What are we doing playing David Ten thirty in the morning, and then I said you know what? I'm sticker these. Stewart soccer. Basketball to scale it back down to like three times a day. What is wrong with you? What do you mean? There's never too much. Basketball Hashtag basketball never stops. Needs to stop a little bit I. I can't i. only thing like kids in like four days. I, live in saint how them seen them like I'm spending no time with them and I'm not having meal eating in my room I. Kick a nap. I can't work out. Thing. Oh. There's another game on. God, blesses Sacrimento key. 'cause destroyed by the magic going to my life for about two. Well the entire, Saturday all day center. There was so many blowouts that I just went to the pool with the kids I hung out. You know what I'm saying, and then you know I had the TV kind of in the background. I'd Kinda glance at it, and then I sat down and watched later Lakers Raptors. It's one of those things was like I just would like. Just, like a breather this. Process. What I just saw. Maybe take a walk think about things, and then there's lots more basketball this back perpective and starting at ten thirty in the morning. I'm sorry man, we're not the NFL, we need to stop that and I. Got An attract Laura. Tell us what you just text me. I said firstly complained that they that we didn't have any sports. Now, you're complaining we have too much sport. What's wrong with you? Could be expected though, right. Like we won a nice happy medium. We don't want to gushing all over again. I don't want to be like dry as a bone. Can I have? No? No, I want excess. Okay. That's what I want. I, want excess. I wanted to ooze out of my body basketball all day. All right. Real quick since we were talking basketball. So. After the clipper game, I was a little concerned with this. Okay. Less concerned about Lebron Lebron is shot only thirty seven percent in four games against the clippers. But I feel like Lebron will figure it out even though Co and Paul, George there, it's not like Lebron didn't face. Oh, I, don't know Kevin Durant Klay Thompson Andrea Donnellan draymond. Green as a core trying to defend him and did pretty well in a series even though maybe at times in the regular season. SEASON, didn't go as great. So I feel like he'll figure it out. I. Am a little concerned about Anthony Davis in this sense and I mean little by very little tiny concern, but it is a thing in the fourth quarter against the clippers averaging seven minutes a game, his output in the fourth quarter two points, zero points, four points, two points. Then against the raptors whose defense I understand is there to overload against the superstars and make everybody else try to beat you. But there's no way Anthony Davis should only be taking seven shots in a game and only one in the fourth quarter. How much of this is on him to be more aggressive, more assertive. How much is this is on Vogel to get him better positions Lebron to put him in better positions. Where do you lie on all that stuff with Anthony Davis? The answer is, yes, he has. So Vogel has to make it a point in time out guys we gotta eighty going. So we're GONNA drop. We've got scripted plays that are not necessarily to get him the ball here or there, but just literally just get him the ball with the understanding on him. It's own Lebron because the vase got the ball in his hand and he is smart enough of like super computer thrown a Florida to detect where his guy is. How many guys gotten to get more walt. But ultimately George, you can bring a horse to one of them. You can't force them to drink every superstar at some point. Asked to tell his teammates. Believe you. Get me the ball Kenny. Smith told the story. I, never forgot it. He does like ten years ago. Now, he told were talking about Dwight Howard in Orlando not getting the ball enough and how he can't have like eight points at halftime in loss and Kenny said. I, remember one game where team had like four shots in the first half and he came in and the mother, every one of us and everyone akin cursing, and he gets angry as hell. Yeah. He does because that's part and parcel superstar. You may seem like a nice guy. Sometimes, the Nice guys gotTa go away and you gotta be demanding and so ultimately, Anthony Davis does their responsibility there. But of course, Vogel and Lebron can do more to make sure he's involved. Yeah because that to me look I, think that for the Lakers to win a championship. I mean, again, I know what? I'm getting from Lebron right and I know what those role players are right and there's going to be ups and downs those guys. But they've got enough guys where you feel like one guy will probably step up in most games, right? Like, but Anthony Davis to me is the key particularly particularly against the clippers because they don't have an actual matchup for him. So it's like if he can. If he can power through and really dominate in winning time, then I don't think anybody really can beat the Lakers. This is this is the problem. The problem is, and I've said this all year long the Lakers, have problems teams that play five out. Right. The don't play traditionally with the big in the pink right. Raptors. Did it to him the you know and the the the the quiz. Obviously, it's an earlier this year, the game, MIAMI? They ended up winning, but almost lost team that they're much better than was because Dan. Mata, by offering outside the game against Milwaukee in Milwaukee Milwaukee. Just kind of embarrassed all the teams where they play five out the Lakers have problems with and so you know. The key when you talk about that is Anthony Davis, he can't afford if teams are going to pay five out. Right. Gordon Him with someone who's lesser than him. He can't afford to be passive afford to kind of find his rhythm. He has to be aggressive because otherwise they basically neutralize one of the big laker vengeance having Anthony Davis, who's the top player in this week? Well, to your point in that Miami game. He was really good in the fourth quarter. You know what? I'm saying and he was he kind of asserted himself, and that's how they were able to win that game and ultimately doesn't it boiled down to Anthony Davis as much as he hates, it is going to have to play center in some of these Games. Because they they, they can't play him at thinner. Then you're now you're going with serious liability 'cause I. don't care how. Good this year, but he's not good enough. But we're GONNA play him thirty five minutes and dumping it to him. 'cause he's going up again. you know Patterson is your Michael Green on the block mantras Harrell when that happened like. I, that's just not the best utilization of Laker talent. Right. The Best Vision Lakers talent is ad at the five and they'd be Kouzmines out there the formula bras at the four whatever it is, and and now you can Mac talent for talent because it's ultimately when teams go small, that's what they're doing. They're saying I don't care positions. I'm putting my most talented players out there speaking of small Houston I've been saying punchers chance. Are you buying punchers chance? Go. As, long as they're laid to me a woman city in the first round I'm saying it right now I'm saying it would based in my voice, but my test out the Oklahoma City thunder wash, them will watch them while I'm telling you because it's a thinking man's game and what they ultimately do in in Houston is just playing off in motion and feel and all that tonight for regular season matchup where we just game plan for tonight, and then we gotta move onto the next one. But when you get into playoffs and everything is based on game printer, stop you from doing what you like to do. Right. Everyone thinks, ooh, double teaming harden as soon as he crosses half court. You think all these teams. That's the best they got hell. No, they hide as the good stuff with a mix it up on them because they don't want the rockets to have it on film on tape that all they're going to try this. So then when they do this James, you can do that. No, no, no, no. No. You show them to double because that's a nice easy thing to do right now. But when the playoffs had, you're going to defensive packages that you haven't seen all year long, and that's ultimately when a look at the Houston Rockets offense is just too simplistic to bare bones and I don't believe their personnel has the ability to kind of. make other things happen outside of an up and down flowing game and I, think Oklahoma City is the opposite of that if they're very regimented, very greater. And Paul and the grudge match factor. Either? Inside for an office insider says, there's too much basketball, send your thoughts to him on twitter at garth amine and feel free to do that for the rest of the week. Thank you for stopping by.

Autism Awareness Month

Affording College with Aaron Greene

16:36 min | 2 years ago

Autism Awareness Month

"Welcome to affording college with Aaron green founder and president of college liftoff. All right. Thanks thirty. So welcome to forty college. I'm Erin greenhouse of affording college and founder of college left off colors. Dav college planning firm. I started to provide solutions for anybody and everybody that's going through college planning has college planning needs. Our mission is to secure teens brightest future and save them and their families thousands of dollars in the process, we work with teams throughout the entire college planning process starting with personalized one on one critic felt and work from there. We find the best schools to match our students chosen career paths and interest then offer support throughout the entire mission's process next, we work with families budgets to find the price that makes the most sense for their kids education all while ensuring it's the right fit today. We are high premier college planning firm, I'm happy to say that where shooting for the world, by the way, and we strive to save time stress and money when it comes to your child's higher education. So that's a little background on myself. And college off my do this podcast. I really wanna offer. Family some salad vice when it comes to planning for college and higher education because there's so much misinformation out there. The purpose of this podcast is to dispel the Mets and misinformation and really help families. So I'm sitting here taking a moment out of our busy schedule of college acceptance offers as we're kind of seeing them role in all over the place so many word letters. We're definitely in the throes of that. And plus it's promises. And so let's say at least high schoolers not exactly focused on college planning at this particular moment, but it is April, and it is autism awareness month. And we really want to shed some light on this topic. I mean, we're we're getting ready to go into the fiftieth anniversary next year and the purpose of autism awareness month is to educate local communities and raise public awareness about autism survey. Like, it's a movement towards really acceptance and appreciation people who are on the autism spectrum Bill, you really want people with autism spectrum disorder to feel valued because they do have special gifts and talents that sometimes go unnoticed by the general public. So great point. So with that I'm here with to my co workers, I'm here with Juliana. Are you doing and here with page? Hey, what's going on much? We're gonna we're gonna talk about this a little bit today in some of the work that we're doing even college lift off to kind of work through with our families. Absolutely. If if you don't take anything away today, I hope you understand is that there's a great fit for everybody in college. And that includes people on the spectrum, and we are just finding great spots for any student comes in who need some additional combinations. And there's no reason to think college is for me. That's absolutely true. It's it's one of those terrible stigmas that we've had for so long that college isn't built for everybody. But there's a version higher education for everybody and working through peace five fours autism at the next level. I it's just like working through any other expertise for be a sport. Whether it be musical instrument. It's just another component to the equation for us that we work through with our families. Absolutely. I mean, we definitely wanna think about fit factors. And fifth factor may be that you need ah dorm room that give has an accessible shower right because you have physical disability. It may mean that you need access to additional time for test taking or you might need a note taker there are lots of different ways that colleges can help accommodate, but there's no reason to think that that your need is. So very different that you can't be accommodated at a school. I think it's important to know that college is really a new experience for everyone. Not just students who have autism are learning differences. So it's pretty frightening. Honestly, I was pretty scared to go to college myself. But currently I'm reading a book that page gave me called parties dorms and social norms by Lisa Meeks, and Tracy Masterson. But it's about safe living for young adults on the spectrum, and they talked about a lot of things. I I honestly wish I would've known just going to college. So that just shows the similarities between. Students who have learning differences and people who are neuro typical that are also going to college they're going through the same things. So we'll take this back to even think about schools and hell that correlates to to students with learning differences droopy told there are schools that deal with better than others. We know that we don't still let that be the driver we still really want proper velopment work to be done and all those things. But in the end, we do wanna find the schools that do offer better accommodations for those students overall. But again, it's just another piece of the criteria in the same way that we're looking for the rat academic situation. You wanna make sure that you're paying the right price for all those things. Exactly, we never wanna send students to program. Just because they've got great accommodations. What we're seeing more and more as that. Every college is recognizing the need for great accommodations for all of their students a variety of levels. Whether it's like, a dedicated cafeteria for students with with food allergies, or whether it's making sure that all of their buildings are acceptable. So that we don't need to move classroom. Around. So that somebody in a wheelchair can take a class that they desperately need to fulfil a major working with a student on the spectrum now, and we looked at musk musk Ingham is a great school, and they have a terrific plus program for students with learning differences. And ultimately, it just wasn't the right fit for this particular student. It didn't really must didn't support the this units major, but not to say that must gingham is integrate fit. But it just reminds us like we would never send a Saito student. Let's go to the school because they've got a great accommodation program. Instead, we're going to find a great fit for your major. And then in addition, we're gonna find you the kind of accommodations that will help you be ultra successful. I think it's even more important for students on the spectrum or who have a learning to France to focus on career development work because generally, they do show amazing SCO in one or more ability domains. So we talk about in our general orientation that there's nine types of intelligences and the United States only tests for logical slash mathematical or lingua. Mystics? And sometimes that's not the case, I who are on the spectrum or have a learning difference. And sometimes that's not the case for just a neuro typical student general hill probably because for. But it really has opened the world up to students with learning differences. It's a very different world. It was even ten twenty thirty years ago in that regard. So, you know, I started my career as a lot of you already know or actually it's the people this table hurting. I started my career in in early intervention. I worked with a Bertha three population in Indiana. And I had a ton of kids who are on the spectrum, and that was really Bevis kind of early stages early dentition for a long time. We assume that we couldn't identify students autism spectrum disorder until they went off to school. And we notice that they were diverging from their peers. But in the time that I was doing early intervention work. We really they were doing much better work at identifying students early. So that we could do the kind of their base that would help them game in a seri- skills to go on to school and be successful. And even then we were having these really positive excited conversations about what we were hoping we would see for these students moving forward and feary rarely did we talk about college or higher education or even like a certificate program. We just we didn't really talk much about employment. What we really talked about was. Let's see if we can. Spend some time in the regular classroom. And now, I mean, the the conversation is just completely flipped around in the last twenty years. So we realized that as long as we build in the supports. That's units need. There's no reason to think that college isn't a possibility that you can't have a great exciting career doing something fun and meaningful and combines your purpose and your passion. So I think for a long time. We did we are notion of work looked more like a sheltered workshop anything. Most people are familiar with those. And now, there's no reason to think that that needs to be the outcome for any of our students. So people come in. They have ideas about what they wanna do. We help them refine those ideas to find the best fit, and then we find a great program that they they can go and who in their skills and go out into the world, all all such great poets. I mean, it really goes back to critic element has to be the driver and at the beginning of this and. Like, we don't have these box jobs anymore, isn't it? In fact, we don't even really use the terms of white collar and blue collar for that regard. I mean, the the sense of what we think of as blue collar probably the higher. And even then they're like multifaceted. You have to really know your ins and outs on computing work. And all these things appending on the job. It's a very different world than it was. And we we hear that all the time. Like, we don't know the jobs are going to be in play and five or ten years today that that's true. There's some things you can still predict all those things, but you know, going back to what you talked about Juliana about how nine different intelligences and mercy today, they're all being put to work. It just really depends on the kid. But this really goes back to okay like as a family. What does some things you have to really remember when you're when you're planning to schools with AP with five or four with autism. How does advocating for yourself really work at this level? What are some things apparently thinking about in that regard? It's important to note that you said as a family because we really want to build the confidence in students with learning differences. But we also tend to forget that parents also have needs, and they are going through this whole. Lst situation with their students with them your entire life through this. Exactly. So when working with students on the autism spectrum I feel like we really needs to help guide. The parents also and help them feel comfortable and help them gain that confidence to send their child off to college. We went the parents to feel competent that their students have become empowered. And once the students are empowered to make their own decisions to advocate for themselves. Then I think the parents feel like yeah. This is definitely a possibility. I think that my kid will go and knock it out of the park. And that's that's what we want for every kid who leaves college liftoff chosen quickies takeaways liquor development be the driver don't be afraid to advocate for your student fund schools that have the proper combinations for student do investigative work you to there s questions everything you need to. But again, make sure the program is best fit for the student and again that just circle back to good solitaire development work anything else. I would add to that. I should add to that. I should say. So I think it's really important that we again too. Students need to be able to self advocate. So they can't go off to college and expect that their parents can do it for them any longer because the reality is once you turn eighteen your parents lose the ability to advocate on your behalf. So it's also important to know that within your K to twelve schooling typically were well known by your teachers by the staff, they sort of new combinations. That you needed to be successful. But moving into college colleges tend to be bigger places, you know, and not every professor is going to be familiar, and they're not going to be kept up to speed by some governing body. So that's why the advocacy is so important, and really helping your students. Learn to advocate for themselves is something we talk about with our current clients and their parents. But you know, it's something honestly that all of our students for apple with right? It's you know, it's part of learning to be independent becoming become an adult. It's just that much more important for students who have a five oh four or an IEP plan living into college. I have first hand experience actually working with learning disability services at Kent state because I suffer from an on and omic disorder. The I'd vote in high school, so while going to stay basically, I would meet with learning disability services each semester and made sure that they reached out to all of my professors to let them know of my condition, and then the combinations I need, but it's really important for the audience listening in to know that you do need to keep in contact with disability services each semester and make sure that you're keeping them up to date with everything that's going on in your life. You have to make sure that would have replaced new setup through. This ability is set up each calendar year. You got that school because things may change again. Like, you said page in versus or big administrators, come and go, and this and the other. So you wanna make sure that those same things are set up for yourself every single year that you're there, honestly, it'd be great. And that's the thing about this that. Whether be learned difference whether be autism. It's not a hindrance at the next level anymore. At the end of the at the end of the year colleges have to explain just how many other freshman they've managed to retain. And so it's really it behooves college right without using the word behooves moves a college to support the students moving forward right to make them successful. So when you come into college, it's important to ask for the combinations. That you give you need to be successful. And typically the colleges will will do what they deem reasonable. Because ultimately at the end of the air. They wanna make sure that you stand board and that you come back the following air. I haven't seen the school get that won't be honest with you with what they can. Or can't do at this point. Again. That's why uses another piece of criteria when you're looking for schools, not the sole one. But another piece of it because you do want to make sure that they do know what they're doing because you're absolutely right. The last thing wanna see especially for soon with learning. Differences that they didn't meet their end of the bargain on that that that doesn't look good anywhere. And especially for the student on the topic of advocating for yourself. Sometimes I will say at some universities of heard some horror stories of learning. Disability services, not really handling the situation as maybe their parents would have or maybe it's taken a little while longer to actually get those combinations in place. So really what students who do have learning differences? I would recommend speaking directly to your professor, and then also making some friends within the class in casing day of school because of an illness, and they can give you notes and then also joining organizations on campus for students that do have learning differences. Great world, we live in with this now where honestly there's so much more support and options than there ever have been. And it's just a matter of knowing what's available knowing what the schools offer, and where to find as we're just going to talk about now knowing how to advocate for your child and child of being able to adv. Gate themself. Especially once it become an adult. That's on the we deal with every day college lift up. This is something that again for us is just another piece of the puzzle. And every student has an X a piece of the puzzle. Whether it be a sport, whether it be a musical instrument whether musical theatre learn difference. It doesn't matter. It's just another piece to it alre kids are there's a version of higher education for every one of them. And that's something we work on every single day to make sure that our kids can realize that for themselves individually one on one. So thank you guys for being with me today.

Student Contest Winner: On the Bench

"Civics wanna one is supported in part by the corporation for public broadcasting. It's time for another student contest winner here. It's civics went to one last year. We had the privilege of getting to know obvious samba que- and her take on the constitutional convention this time around it's three rockstars from from village joseph marie highschool in holland pennsylvania just the antonoff catherine bruni and tara zeltner take us into that most hallowed of chambers the u._s. supreme court to discover how how are three female justices have shaped the law of the land in the united states. I'm ana mccarthy by the way i'm jay without further ado we present on the bench wjr hi everyone welcome to on the bench where your house tears exner jesse and katie bruni from villa joseph marie high school all events is a podcast about the supreme court and their influence in the modern era. Let's start with history. It's important to remember the early beginnings of the supreme court. The supreme court was created in article three of the united states constitution however it isn't described too much detail a lot of what makes up the supreme court has been created because of different interpretations the founding fathers left the nitty gritty details. The featured governments only specify that there should be a supreme court with lower courts in the constitution leading exactly. No parents refused addresses. The first supreme court had six justices zero point zero percent of them women in eighteen sixty sixty nine. The court evolved to include nine justices still zero point zero percent of them women even with nine justices. The court was completely white male. The court took its first first steps towards diversity thurgood marshall's nomination and appointment in nineteen sixty seven justice marshall great grandson of a slave swore to do equal right hi to the poor and the rich as supreme court opened its one hundred seventy eight turn this only added color on the bench rush but there is still zero point zero percent women to summarize there have always been all men report on sale nineteen eighty-one this soci- year in which sandra day o'connor was appointed to the supreme court becoming the first female to ever serve on the bench only say that i will approach it with care care and effort and doing the best job nine possibly from loop. I've always tried to do that with any position that i've held off the day. Sandra ascended the steps of the court. The world changed forever for her. It was completely terrifying for fifty one percent of the u._s. Population asian electrically exciting being appointed import is an incredibly difficulty presiding over cases seems to be even harder. One sandra day o'connor arrived onto the scene or should i say bench she wrote on some very important cases that had lasting precedents. One of the most notable cases that sandra day o'connor may the deciding vote for it was planned parenthood v casey which reinforced roe v wade and the legalization of abortion limited right. I would have thought you would look the burden of the law is applied to the woman and i think another case that set precedent was gutter v. bonder which allowed for the use of affirmative action by universities and colleges in promotion of equal results for minorities and previously disadvantaged groups o'connor's also swing vote in shelby rano which prohibited racial racial gerrymandering bush v gore which may florida stop recounting votes for the two thousand presidential election and declared george w bush president and lastly u._s._b. Lopez in which the supreme court declared the gun free school zones act was outdo the congress clause power back to the states in taking power away from congress. Although sandra day o'connor will always be most well known for being the first woman on the bench she has a much greater impact on america and the great news is that o'connor honor isn't the only woman whoever's batch currently there three lady justices ruth bader ginsburg my favorite. I am very much alive. Sonia sotomayor the first sarokin hispanic justice on court do i suspect that might be dissenting a bit more possibly and elena kagan the first female solicitor general. It's an incredibly important thing for the court to guard is this reputation of being fair of being impartial of of being neutral these three women currently serve on the supreme court one of them having been on the bench since nineteen ninety-three well experienced and most respected ruth bader ginsburg eric has been a crucial part of the supreme court for twenty six years taken away ter tab ruth bader ginsburg a woman seeming to have a never ending life span van ruling on cases with a liberal mind helping the damaged out of a bind she took up the fight gender discrimination solving legal oh awesome champion of women's rights in favor of male and female the blacks and whites one of her most well known cases being gene u._s._b. Virginia opening all-male virginia military institute and cracking agenda based in adma have got to become accustomed to taking command <music> women won't become accustomed to that let in shelby county v holder she descended to protect congresses for vision in the voting rights act nevertheless ruth bader ginsburg evaluates every fact so that she can make the best decision that will last her lacy will will never die even wants your tires whereas past and that's the summary of ruth bader ginsberg in her immense effect on the court and on america the u._s._s. bureau projects except the non hispanic population growth will slowly decrease so that by twenty forty there will be a minority majority. This means that previous minority groups oops including hispanic americans african americans asian americans etc. We'll have a larger population combined than the white population you such a huge porsche more population being hispanic or backgrounds. The supreme court did not have an american on the bench until two thousand nine in that year sonia sotomayor a fifty fifty four year old woman from the bronx was confirmed as the first latina supreme court justice in u._s. History twenty nine years previous to her appointment onto the supreme court by president president barack obama sotomayor attended yale law school passed the bar exam and later became a u._s. District court judge in nineteen ninety two so not not only she wanted to you female supreme court justices but she's also very rican descent which allows here to add even more diversity the bench so to myanmar has made a huge impact on the court especially because of her trust in america's judicial process and her hostile attitude toward unprepared lawyers for most influential cases include silverman the major league baseball player relations committee inc of which is said sotomayor saved baseball because of her decision that ended the baseball players strike which lasted almost an entire year barlett v new york state board of law examiners in which she ruled that the meaning of the word disability must be defined under the categories already explained in the americans with disabilities act this allowed doctor with a reading disability to receive accommodations during the mark sam and the final case is castlerock entertainment inc. Fee carol publishing group in which he implemented the fair use doctrine in a modern inciting setting boundaries on idea that one can use copyrighted material without notifying the person holding the copyright today so the mayor is not not only known for bring diversity to the bench but also for her history of dissenting because she says that quote personal experiences affect the facts that judges choose to see and quote the last female justice for us to discuss this elena kagan the most recent female supreme court justice appointee weekday similar son of meyer. Elena kagan was also born to your city. I was nominated by barack. Obama kagan majored in history at princeton university and later attended worchester college oxford where she earned her degree in philosophy. He education continued on after as your turns in the u._s. To attend harvard law after after graduation she clerked for supreme court justice thurgood marshall which gave her important previous experience for once you become a supreme court justice herself in two thousand ten before before i even becoming the fourth woman to serve on the supreme court elena kagan was appointed as the first woman to serve as solicitor general of the united states in two thousand nine upon appointment to the supreme court kagins biggest cases included kimball v. marvel entertainment because kagan is often known as the most pop culture sensitive justice her opinion in this case even contain spiderman references in nineteen ninety. Stephen kimball got a patent for a toy glove that allows kids to imitate spiderman king beaver well which upheld the constitutionality of the affordable care act and lastly overture fell hodges in when she voted as part of the majority despite despite her anti same sex marriage views previously expressed auberge felber hodges proved to be a hugely impactful case for all of america because the case overturned many states laws laws against same sex marriage and four states to recognize same sex marriage a ruling decade in the making a hard-fought victory victory for the right to marry guaranteed and a landmark decision that emphasize equality for gays and lesbians and the whole promise of liberty as as a controversial take time to l._g._b._t. Plus community elena kagan played a huge part in the events of gay rights in conclusion. All four of these phenomenal women have created lasting legacy for themselves not only for being the only four women have ever served on the u._s. Supreme court but for awesome making decisions on cases is that set precedent and for enacting american lives the question is why are they so well known for being women on the bench because there was another question answered on how men made the correct decisions for women without a female perspective on the bench third plenty of examples of this with the biggest one being roe v wave roe v wade commence in fact on women throughout the entire country because it legalized abortions yet not a single woman served on the bench to contribute a woman's point of view you to the case instead it would be another eight years before sandra day. O'connor was appointed to the bench but the most important born thing is that they're women on the bench now because we have had the opportunity of women serving on the bench america has a whole had the opportunity of representation for women america erica has been able to hear a woman's speak from one of the highest positions in this great nation and follow her late america has been able to achieve more and become even greater because of these women women and this newfound perspective that once silenced and shameful although we must never forget the impetuous times of women were not on the bench we will not be able. I forget the women that have served on the bench past and present these women have advanced all women's rights especially american women's these for women have defied all stereotypes discrimination expectations instead they they have exceeded those who have underestimated them and they've proved that they not only belong but were better qualified than everyone else surrounding them sandra day o'connor honor ruth bader ginsburg sonia sotomayor and elena kagan. These four talented powerful strong and independent women served. It's on the bench of the supreme court and they served and are still serving america wealth and to the best of their abilities diversity is needed on the supreme court in order to make proper decisions and these women help diversify the bench immensely without them who knows in what way some cases would have been ruled well well. The topic of these four amazing female justices is a great place to leave off today's podcast. Thank you all so much for listening. We hope you enjoyed by. Thank you for calling villa joseph marie high school the bucks county premier college preparatory school for young women. If you know your party's extension may please. He's hold while i transfer your call hi. This is <hes> jesse animal from bella justice maria. We're gonna put you on speaker so if we get disconnected. Can you call us back uproars. Okay okay. We're ready. Hey <hes> congratulations grads you guys. Could you wanted to introduce yourselves. I'm jesse allah. I'm katherine bruni and i'm tara sector. We attend villages for high school and and our teachers mr winkle easy. We're really curious. What was your inspiration for this episode. How did you guys come up with this idea. I guess it started. We all three of us are in class. Caw aw constitution crisis in the court and in this class we talked a lot about the supreme court and the creation of the supreme court everything like that and of so like i said in the episode my favorite supreme court justices always been ruth bader ginsburg and she really inspired like an interest in law so i've always loved the supreme court and and tyranny are also in the supreme court club at our school and i've really enjoyed that. It's where we debate. Supreme court cases says either past or pending cases <hes> so i've really enjoyed that and it's incredibly fun. Could you tell me why is is it that you feel. Representation is important in the supreme court well. We think that representations importance from court because the supreme court is making decisions for all of america america so if it doesn't reflect all of america. How could they make the right decision. That's best for everyone. I feel that the supreme court needs to represent america america in order to make the right decision exactly. Do you feel that there's any group that currently does not have any representation that perhaps should be on the bench. Orasure owners are definitely linked. The first that comes to mind is the l._g._b._t._q. Community there's never been a supreme court justice so i think especially with more recent cases that there should eventually be a book justice. Lots of different groups like asian americans native americans who have never been represented on the supreme court. If you guys were to make another episode of on the bench do you have any ideas about what it would be about well. I would like to do <hes> if we're we. Were gonna do another one cases with spring courts had to get involved in other branches like u._s._b. Nixon i think would be very cool. Talk about at this point the we're trying to decide whether what nixon did was a constitutional overreach of power so it's kind of the supreme court going beyond what they usually do and getting involved in the executive branch. Is there anything that concerns you regarding the supreme court that you've been reading about in the news news or were you see the future of the supreme court or anything that excites you about the future of the supreme court i think for me when things that i'm curious about and also a little nervous the <hes> the topic of abortion right now and how prominent of an issue that is in our country and how how many states are making laws either banning abortion or minimizing the time period you can get an abortion so if the the supreme court will take a case on and here case about abortion and how they would rule on that i think it also in the case of plus he versus versus where it was originally clear constitutional for separate equal and then brown you before overturn that so i think that is obviously very similar case if they i wanna be another case heard on abortion how would rule or if it would declare the decision of roe v wade the constitution and my other question is. Do you have any advice anything. You'd like to say to students in america today suggestions for anyone else who wants to do a project like this. I would say follow your passion because we all love the supreme court. I love religions were very interested in the female justices and we did it because we loved it and it paid off if you we do a project like this about something that you don't really care about. She's going to seem like a job in insurance can be really boring greeted. Keep writing about it but if you're really interested in is just going to be easy to just talk about it. Keep talking so and i would say make sure that you try to be an informed citizens that you can make the best choices for you as an american and eventually exercise your right to vote as well.

How Seth Curry Emerged from Steph's Shadow

"The last week Steph curry returned to the warriors line-up but while the two time. Mvp was sidelined with a broken hand. His younger brother. Seth made quite a bit of noise. Please over the past month. Seth Curry has emerged as a key. Member of the playoff bound and dangerous Dallas Mavericks. And today we're talking to the athletics Tim Kato About Seth. Curry's rise from undrafted free agent to Mavericks X. Factor and what it's like to finally emerge from his brother's shadow. South is very glad that he is a reached some stability in his career and no longer is he just steps brother from wondering and the athletic. I'm under skelter and I'm beat the Davidson. It's Tuesday march tenth and this is the lead. It felt like something was happening. There is something of the emotion and the past because his. This isn't a story. Earlier it stays with the lead is supported by light box ever heard of lab grown diamonds lab. Grown diamonds are essentially chemically identical to natural ones just made in a lab at light box. They've hacked the process to grow gorgeous stones every time it starts with a tiny piece of LAB GROWN DIAMOND HEATED UP IN PLASMA reactor temperatures nearly as hot as the sun after about two weeks. Those little seeds grow into full stones. Now here's where it gets really interesting. Light Boggs lab. Grown diamonds aren't just made the same every time they're also priced the same. Each carrot is eight hundred dollars mind blown even cracked the science of colors. You can sparkle in pink white and blue. Check them out at Light Bucks. Jewelry Dot com slash lead and use code lead for twenty five dollars off. That's light box. Jewelry Dot com slash lead L. E. A. D. and use code lead for twenty five dollars off Sir Tim before he picked up a minor injury a few days ago. Seth Curry was on fire. Can you walk us through his recent hot streak? He's been incredible. Hurry Jude vote. He shoots the if if that's going down. He started the year looking just a little bit off but there was. There is an assumption that at some point he was going to start looking like a curry. You know he has an open shot and you just assume it's going in. Is this a career scoring four thirty two points previous best thirty one drills three to keep especially in February? You know he was just just incredible. You know these are curry theories the contested with defender in his face. And so he is really showing. You know why he's better than just about everybody on the planet at at doing what he's doing and that's tossing a ball through the hoop from twenty five feet away and he actually recently passed his brother as the active leader in three point. Shooting percentage point short ellison. We all we've seen so much tape of steph curry over the years. We all know what kind of player he is. Maybe not so much seth. How would you compare their playing styles stuff? Has I think the quick. It's jump shot that we have maybe ever seen an NBA curry looking for that. Opening Steps Bash Crossover fires away. He's able to get it off in just a heartbeat. And I think that. Seth needs a little bit more space a little bit more time and we're talking like fractions of a second ultimately. I would say the biggest thing is that steffes handles in his ball handling USA truly elite player in that level and so stuff is a little bit better about getting to is -actly where he wants to go and especially getting to those off the dribble shots but you know all this is just to explain how one of them is an MVP candidate in one of them is only one of the five best players on a on a budding playoff team. But certainly know knocked to seth. The Mavericks talk a lot about how they think. He's an underrated defender. He's solid as a passer. The back pass I suck at doctrine and then the player who. When you're as good of a shooter as Seth is you'RE GONNA get players flying at you so you have to be able to you know step inside. Hit a pull up jump shot get all the way to the rim. Shoot a layup defense especially the three so curry tribes around. Galloway to your guy like Seth Curry. That has that ability. Like you said. Let's talk a little bit about his family. And how? Seth is now finally emerging from his. Big Brother Shadow of course their dad. Del Played Sixteen Years in the NBA and interviews. Seth has talked about how he and Steph spends a lot of time around. Nba Players. Growing up my dad would bring to practices whenever you could two games early to to just follow him around and and we were just watching. Nba Players Every single day at work in Washington workout shoe before the Games things like that so consciously like sinks in. I think that's part of it. But what was the dynamic like between these two brothers when they were growing up from everything? I've heard they loved playing against each other. You know had plenty of sibling. One on one battles. Yes some crazy stories of playing one on one and my mom having to come out and break also fights in reference to the Games and all that rough game. Is You come out in the game. So when break out into all out brawl? What about their personalities? I mean we know Steph as this animated charismatic guy. What's your sense of Steph? In some ways you know he does remind me a lot of stuff than in some ways I would say. He's a little bit more reserved seven more goofy Energetic guy the way he was on the court all manners and is always joking around laughing as always. I'm more of a laid back type Kinda quieter he's like that were you know. I think that he has a quiet confidence or quiet. Swagger about him Seth does you know. He's he's very confident. Clearly than you know from what I hear. His pastime is like fishing. I like to fish hunt and fish. That type of thing My Dad so I got the the country boy tight aspects for my dad. So steph of course was the first one to really explode on the national scene when he was at Davidson. Hold the now we know the NCAA tournament Steph curry leaves. And what was happening with? Seth's career while Steph was becoming this star in both college and then the NBA South starts at Liberty University but he ends up transferring to do step back over blockage set hurry with nine already and he scored show. He took a drive to the show. Immediately shop shop says all right but he isn't. He isn't a star as shown by the fact he spent three seasons there if he had been set to be drafted a lottery or something like that like his brother. Certainly he would have come out. And and instead he's an important piece of a Premier College Organization that was always bringing in new freshmen that overshadow him and coming out of Duke. He doesn't get drafted at all instead. He bounces around the D. League now called the G. League and he's one of the best players. Hurry steps back. Then in a stasis believable. Seth Curry with Scotty. Hopson closing seth curry with the shot on a night. I do think that some of his shortcomings and weaknesses Areas of his games that he has since improved. You know. Were not all the way there yet. That is what the G. League is good at great for young players Who are trying to get used to. Nba system first of all Especially when you have a team. That's the director of another team. You can learn that system get in there. Get some experience for me personally. That was big for my game played a lot of point guard and just get used to that and helped me get away onto and look. I'm not. I'm not advocating for nepotism or anything but given his last name wouldn't you think some NBA team would give him a shot. Yeah you would think especially as Steph emerged as this. Mvp candidate you know. This is the stuff was happening at the same time. Steph was emerging as one of the athletes with the most buzz and attention in the country to be frank. And then there seth and he's playing for Summer League teams. Oh you know. There is stuff's brother. I can only imagine how hard that must've been to be the little brother of this megastar and to constantly be asked about his brother and interviews. Judge me by my last name by my brother Steph by my dad dell the debt crusher minded times no absolute all the time it was probably the toughest thing I would hear. Some people say you need to do this work on this. Do you remember point where it felt like it went from? I'm Dell's kid to I'm steps. Little brother was there a point where you remember all I want from that. Oh I'm this I definitely remember. It was a sophomore year. I'm sure it's hard you know. I am the older brother. But you know it's it's the younger brother symptom. Everybody understands that at times. You feel a little overshadowed. Even if it's all in your head you know. I think it's probably inevitable that you feel that way especially when your brother? Is You know steph curry so tim. Seth Curry finally makes it to the NBA with the Sacramento Kings. But he really starts to shine with the Dallas Mavericks in two thousand sixteen seventeen on the floor shaking his head. Yes created feeling Mavericks Sally. What don't you scorecard is he plays in seventy games Ends up starting a bunch of them as your goes on. You know just generally showing that all around game that. He clearly worked on in improved at during his time bouncing around the G. League in the years prior but just when it looks like his career is about to take off. He gets this huge setback. Seth curry out for the year. What's going to happen is going to have surgery on his left. Tibia that he's been having issues with and he's going to say it was so tough in. It wasn't supposed to be that way. You know it. It came out early in in preseason in training camp early in the early in the season you heard you know. Oh that sucks gonNA miss a little bit of of the start of the season but it seemed like every month for the first few months of the season people kept saying there's complications or is going to be out a little bit longer but nobody nobody was saying that that this would potentially be a season ending injury for him so it was a very strange chapter in his career. Very you know certainly unfortunate and made people hope for his sake that it wasn't going to derail all the progress that he had made but I think that was was a worry.

And that's where he really comes onto more people's radar. Get the ball again curry. He serves as a spark plug off the bench like a microwave cooker. Who can come in and hit a bunch of threes and maybe scored nine points for a quarter at out of nowhere. Well and the blazers actually make it to the Western Conference finals that year. And they meet Steph Curry and the warriors the the media did have a lot of fun with that one. Your brother yet. And what do you think that goes eighteen? I talked to him last night and talked to him. We text me right after the game. Southsea Tuesday and we got to see their parents. Dell and Sonya out wearing the Split Jerseys half-and-half Warriors and Blazers Shelly. Bainbridge Steph Curry's Godmother and a family friend thirty five years had an idea creating split jerseys so Sonya and Dell curry could cheer for both boys how did he play against his brother in the western conference finals Portland got swept because the warriors were the warriors you know just a just a complete juggernaut. Southgate's one good game in. He scored sixteen points in game to game the only lose by three points. GotTa Pass Bricks backout curry backup by one. You know two brothers facing each other in the conference finals. That's fun it's just a celebration of how these guys were born. Two years apart they grew up together and now they're competing against each other in playoff series. That's a really cool thing but really this current season with the mavs. That's been south curry's breakout year. Why has it been working so well for him in Dallas especially over the past month or so south was a perfect fit for what the Mavericks Rebuilding Your Round Luca? Danni pitch in kristaps porzingis. Luca is a player. Who because he's six eight and it has some of the best vision that the NBA has ever seen? He's going to find three point shooters he's going to create three point shots virtually every play if he if he wants the rebound. It's answers fast. Seth Curry he had a good look at it for the fingertips and it was on the money. You could tell. It was running well so on a team with Luca unpaid Singa. St- could you make the case that Seth Curry is actually the key to the mavs playing spoiler in the playoffs? You know he might be clearly. The most important players are are Luca and kristaps and Tim Hardaway Junior. But South Korea has emerged as as the team's fourth leading scorer and more importantly you know he is. You know it's a it's a classic Sportswriter Cliche. But in a way he is an ex factor in the sense that you don't know exactly what to expect from him. He does have the ability to go off for thirty points. In a game jury staunch thirty. Tonight's game thirty per number. You know if you get thirty points from. Seth unexpectedly that dramatically changes. The outlook of of any playoff game is especially against a team. That might on paper be better than you. You Know Dallas will not be the best team this season. They are our young team. That's coming together. Their their best years are absolutely ahead of them. But when you have a player like seth I it's certainly possible that you could have the recipe for an upset. So Tim Steph. Just returned right. He was out for most of the season and he's just returned to the warriors. Do you think him being out for so much of the season. Kind of allowed seth to step out from his shadow. It does feel like seth curry is his own person. Not just stuff's brother more than ever before. Certainly this season were. Seth has been the best curry playing. It has allowed him to to really be his own. Self Seth is a fully formed fleshed out MBA player on his own rights and merits. And if you took the last name away from him he would still be everything that he has accomplished and achieved in certainly would still be just as much a fundamental and vital player furthest Mavericks Roster. All right we'll tim. Thank you so much for joining us to talk about the other. Thank you guys so much for having me on guessing mine. I gotTA advantage. You hear that. Now he said you can get your head. Anybody can get in your head. He's been known him since you've been can he do it? He knows what buttons I You just throw them alive right there. You gave him the Mike Verse. That's messed up. You can follow Tim. Kato's coverage of the Dallas Mavericks at the Athletic Dot Com. Here are some other stories. We're following at the lead. After initially closing sports events spectators. Italian officials have now completely halted all sports in the country due to concerns about the corona virus that includes serious soccer games which are being canceled for the first time since world. War Two preparatory events for the Tokyo Games were also stopped in Italy which is on a countrywide lockdown because of the spread of the virus and here in the US the NBA NHL Major League Baseball and Major League.

He was asked about Toronto Lou and the whole fiasco, you know, what I was raised. If I don't have anything. Good say, I'll say it some ABI. Nice interesting. But like the disrespect is unbelievable that they that they've given to tie Lou. He's a championship coach this organization with sixteen championships. You would think that they would value a champion, but they haven't but the dysfunction obviously starts at the top anywhere period, anywhere. But to offer this do three years when you just coming off offering Luke five and try to pick his staff you didn't pick. Luke staff is disrespectful Miami. We've just got a five year deal. So Lou got another five year deal. Congratulations to those those, and that's like the standard. You offered us do three years. He's the champion is pitiful. Man. I don't know. I don't know what doing on where they're going. Well, look the narrative it's not like the national narrative and even the local narrative, basically the narrative period has been relatively consistent right for the last couple of days. And now the which is basically, oh does that whole does that? And I I heard Ireland say this in the first hour Mason Ireland today, you know, you all say the same thing. I don't claim to know exactly how things are going to work out. Or what what the coach is going to be with the front office dynamics going to be that those answers all will be coming in time. But I I understand why Laker fans who just want to win and get back to championship contention are trying to figure this out. And, you know, be an I understand from what all of the reporting has been out of it since the Lakers haven't said since we don't know what the perspective of the team is I get all the reporting has been on one side of things. And so, you know, that's been a pretty conservative. But I do think look, I I just I'm not questioning the reporting not I know, I know I'm just saying that it's very hard to not be. An agreement when everyone's getting five year deals, and you want to championship, and you ha- you've coached that one guy that these guys have and you're one of two guys to win a championship with him. You have more leverage. That's the reality of it. Theron Lou has leverage on the Lakers. And if he has the luxury of having ten million in the Bank leftover that the Cavs get to pay him. And that's why it gets to walk away. Geno. That's that's the that's and look this is known as thick aside here. That's just the facts and those that's that's the reality, which is doing business the way they've decided to do business. The only the only thing I'm gonna I'm gonna keep emphasizing is that I don't care what the narrative is. This is still a very good job. It's very it's the Los Angeles. Freaking lakers. You have LeBron James. You have young talent. You don't have that contracts. You have a lottery pick like all of that. Is fact. Right. Okay. And now you have to assume that things are going to be if you're hired the guy that can execute the plan. It's an important question. But for four and a head coach. And this is I think for Tyler for anybody. You can't just say that. Oh, yeah. I don't need that job. Like, I'm good. You may not get it you you're not promised to get a better job in this. You'd ever know if Brett Brown gets fired after tonight, if the Sixers lose Brett Brown gets fired Tyler will probably be a candidate for that job. And that's and that's fine candidate. He and he rightfully having been a championship. Coach should be a candidate for almost any job. But that doesn't mean he's going to get any job, right? Because it just doesn't guarantee anything. So a risk. It is a risk for anybody to turn on the job that they want. But it's a nice race. When you got ten million. Okay. So this is all time. Like, you George you could. You're you're a in up still you're young you. But you've had a lot of years of experience, but you have still places to go into grow. So you could get employment other other places if you needed to. But like do you want to, you know, do you wanna leave ESPN there's a lot going for you at this company, you could, but you have to if you're going to go up to your bosses and basically say, hey, look, I'm trusting my own talent. I can go somewhere else. I don't have to resign here. It's like you could. But maybe you're we don't think that's an apples to apples comparison. Like, let's try to look at somebody's not. I'm just trying to let's just say someone like higher up on the totem pole. Right. Let's say let it doesn't even. Let's let's just say someone is simple as like Jay Bilas. Right. Jay Bilas is the premier college basketball analyst ESPN's. Excellent Jay Bilas can go wherever he wants. And because that's not apples, apple them. Because Lukashenko everyone he's got the well. But you just said he can get he should be able to get an interview anywhere. He wants. But Jay Bilas if Bilas wanted to go to FOX, I'm pretty sure FOX would be like, okay, cool. Let's do it this way. Let's make it Bilas. Let's make it Reese, Dave. Who host college football college game day, right? He's an excellent host. He's probably had chances to go a million other places, and he has stated ESPN, but that would be the equivalent he's that guy. He just got that job a couple years ago. He's done a really good job holding that showdown after Chris Fowler. Did it for twenty years. And yeah, like he he can do things on his terms. Now. He's employed right now, but ties got ten million you he's got the money. He's got three more years of employment. Whether whether he takes a job or not. And that's what I'm getting at is that he's got the security of the employment, even though he doesn't have the actual empowers. Okay. So that's a different conversation. Wish I -gree with he's got. I'm not worried about Tyler when his future, and it's like financial situation whether or not you could ever get another job period. I'm just saying if you especially if you set out another couple of years, you're not just guaranteed to get a job. That's this. Good this. I've of an offer you're not you're not guaranteed. That's that's why you don't have. All of the leverage that's fair. Christie's in Gardena. What's up, Chris? Hey, what's going on with you? George. I you know, I spoke to you before. And I appreciate it. So I'm gonna try to say this real quick and get this out of the way because I know that you have a lot of people to get to first of all let me say to you, man. I got a lot of respect for you, bro. For the way, you handled that caller yesterday. Do you know what Nick was kind of a little bit disrespectful? But you know, I think he didn't really know any better. I think he writes up a fan. Like, I am I'm gonna tell you. I'm fifty years old, bro. I've got a tattoo all of the Lakers on the side of my ribcage, man. They let you know. I'm a Laker fan for life. I follow the Lakers forever meme, but let me tell you what I believe is wrong with it right now, we the Lakers. We we lost we lost. Mr. fuck, you know. And and and I don't know if you've ever had to have a family where you had somebody who was the centerpiece to your family, and they kept everybody together. And they and they called people over when it was time to have Christmas dinner or thank you. Listen, I know it very well. That was my father when he Pat before he passed away. Okay. So you know, that that's great. That makes it perfect for you to be able to understand what I'm trying to say days, then we're quick we lost for and a lot of people out of Laker fans all was supposed to be all lost our centerpiece, and so Jimmy I love her, but I didn't know her. But we and she doesn't have the luxury of of of the fans being able to console her for what she's been through the pressure on her has to be enormous. You know, I am disappointed that she hasn't spoken that. And she hasn't said anything to fan, but I don't know her personally. And and when you guys say like you Georgia in the media. I don't know how Stephen A or you guys get this information. Like, oh, well, this is what Tyron Lou was offered. I don't know what you offer. I don't know how you guys more. But you guys have your weight, but let me say this. I'm gonna end right now. What we need is some type of innovation that, you know, what I mean? I mean, we're at a loss. Right. That is a great guy is a great way to describe it to be honest and intervention, and I'm an elaborate that on that on the other side because I do think there's that there's something to be said about that and great call Chris appreciated. Plus, there's a couple of movements going on within the Laker fan base. We'll tell you what those aren't just a second. So the caller crystal gardenia said that China five dog, I you said that he believes the Lakers needed intervention. That's actually a hundred percent the way I would describe it to and the person that needs that intervention is Jeanie Buss because she is unfortunately, put herself in a position where she surrounded herself with people that she insulates yourself with people that she knows and loves one way, shape or form a very tight inner circle. And unfortunately, you got to run the business like a business, you know, and it ain't show front show friends. It's show business. You know, there is one there is one advantage. I think that Jeannie has and this will continue to play itself out over the years that are coming up not just the weeks and the months, and that's that her two younger brothers. I think people from the outside might think. Oh, I hope they they do, you know, I'm a fan guys because you because you've you've you know, you've learned this from being here now for a little while. But I think people from the outside and certainly people like, Richard Jefferson wouldn't have a way to know. Really? But they might think. Oh, yeah. They're just another 'nother family members like that's why they're there. Well, these guys actually have been working the nuts and bolts, the nitty gritty of the basketball stone for must much of their lives. So that's to me. Most ownership groups don't also have somebody in there that does no basketball to that extent. And so I think that can help. And I think that, you know, I don't know the extent to which that relationship, maybe you those guys will start to be leaned on more and more at some point other than to just do the jobs. They're doing I'm saying like for all of the the basketball stuff. But that to me is one area of encouragement that I think that is already in house that could keep benefiting things moving forward. I just think it's going to be fascinating to see if there's a reckoning would genius. And she realizes that at some point. She needs to kind of have that kind of you know. For lack of a better term. Right. She has to have kind of fat that moment. Right. Where you just kind of like it all kind of snaps and you're like, oh, yeah. You know, what I need to make another decision, and she didn't hear brother, which look it can't be harder than that. I know that they weren't necessarily super duper close. But that's still blood at the end of the day much in rafters and Sixers game six right now. What did you make of this stuff about kunai that you that you heard in the recent days just serves like, you know, what might happen next year? Look, I think he I think he's he's gone for Toronto. I think I still think he's a clipper. But I I think LeBron is smart to make a real push. I think it's I think he wants show LeBron can sell him, then it'll be a huge coup. It's just funny. The the reporting on based on how almost up all of these guys have been thinking has been pretty static over there. I think these guys are smart now, and they know for the most part to just not say anything to anybody during the season. But we're going to start hearing different reports, I think in that's part of that's going to change that that's going to be fun for sure hard of that scared change once players start actually taught or their agents start like after the season in those months leading up to the draft. When team start actually having those conversations and LeBron or whoever, you know, LeBron starts making phone calls. Maybe stephan. I mean low as are making calls yesterday. He LeBron went to Philly to talk to a bit. If LeBron if LeBron calls, you it just it. It is a big deal to actually try to get you to come on. I don't care what player you are. If you're a role player if you're another star. This was the same. For Kobe Bryant if in Kobe necessarily do that out were recruiting or at least wasn't known for it as much here's Stephen A, by the way on that thing are just a few days ago wind rapid when Philadelphia the broad James there. Lebron James was seen talking koala Linnet now whether or not that's true remains to be seen, even if it is true. I don't expect him to admit it. But he's recruiting he's ready to go. He's trying to get some help this summer to come to Los Angeles. You're hearing people Trump about how it's not a foregone conclusion that while going to elect to go to the clippers that indeed he may want to become a loss Angeles lake and play alongside LeBron. My belief is is that if LeBron James was out there recruiting and being passionate about helping the Lakers return to prominence particularly in the aftermath of Magic Johnson walking away. One would stand to believe that he believed the coach was ready in place that it was a fall on conclusion tied. Lou was going to be the next head coach for the Los Angeles Lakers. So now that that does. Yeah. So he believes that that thing yesterday doesn't necessarily help LeBron's caused. But look if a guy comes here it's going to because of LeBron let's face it. It's not going to be a coach. But I don't I don't I do think the dysfunction or the perceived dysfunction doesn't help Saleh's in LA LA's been holding on patiently sow Hello. Guy. We wanted to say when did we become penny? Pinchers we were all about winning at all costs, comfortable autumn. We were supposed to be caught class. And if we don't wanna pay coats, and that means we're not gonna pay fisted. We're all gonna pay now lyrics department. We're not gonna pay letting directors consultants, etc. And what's that say the free agents and other basketball minds that we can target and then with that being said if we can't get Lou back to the table. I think if there's one thing I would highly consider that has caught with stars this league. It would be Steven Tyler. I think that he deserves the chance, and it's his time as we think about why don't you think that just curious? White Stephen Silas. Well, he's been around the league for a long time. He's worked with staff. He's worked with LeBron. He's working with Luther Donkin doctrines right now. And you see all the players develop. He does come off the no nonsense kind of guy. You know, he's been a topic fit throughout the entire region. So, you know, maybe there's something I don't know. But yeah, when he's still very young. He's still very young. And he's got the lineage, right? Is dad Paul. You know, I think he's a guy that's been on people's radars. I don't think I still think this is the first time head coach job, you know, and that's kind of one of the movement's. Right. There's two movements out there right now, there's the Laker fan protests. That's going to happen tomorrow at Staples Center at noon, and there's Becky Hammon movement and someone just asked me on Twitter what about Becky Hammon? And it look I think Becky Hammon is great. But Becky Hammon has a stable situation. And it feels like I don't know this for a fact, but it feels like she's in line to be the head coach whenever pop decides to hang it up. And she's got. The infrastructure already built in there. So why would she leave stable situation when she could potentially be the next in line for an unstable situation. And the other part is she would also be a first time head coach much like Juwan Howard, which is much as I also respect you on Howard. I don't think it's the right way to go coming up next. I've got a couple of things in regards to the Houston Rockets there. I want Trudell to just get this office chest, and then we'll get back to your calls on the Lakers. Richard Jefferson is gonna stop by five fifty five. He's going to basically put fire to rob Pelinka. He is tight with Luke Walton tight with Tyron Lou and tight with LeBron James, and he was on the jump with me earlier today. And let's just say it's going to be like a dragon game of thrones. But I do want to let just chewed out gloat. For a few moments. We'll do that in three minutes. Oh, yeah. Tha Donna show here on ESPN LA Trudell hanging out Richard Jefferson stopping by twelve minutes. He's going to basically torch, rob Pelinka if it's anything like he was on the jump today. He's gonna torch rob Pelinka give me the microphone. I am. I'm sorry. Are you going to feel free? I'm gonna let you gloat. You are very anti. James harden? Not true. Well, so I mean sort I mean come on. I hated him. I said, you're anti here's what so my analogy would be the way that you perceive yourself to be on air general, which is the truth teller, call it like, I see it. Yeah. Have no bias sees. Yeah. That's stuff. That's how I determine myself to be on everything outside of the Lakers in which case. I certainly have. So by by being in the building in which you know, hopefully, I can still give you more. I can still outweigh the scale by my general knowledge. Anyway, my view on on harden in the rockets is basically always been the same. Yeah. That by the way, you also I mean, you do have a great knowledge outside you have great knowledge in general, but you have your biopsies with the Lakers, and you do generally take control of these situations. You're very good at it when it comes to discussing non Laker stuff. Because again, you have your certain biases as you put forth, except when I'm almost choking on the air where you just did not take any control when I needed you to take all control in my read on that. So you remember that situation? My read on that situation was that you were fine. And and you were you know. Excuse me on my I got a cough. And then my defense you lived Benner still here. And when there was a sounded like I was dying. There was a member on the Lakers traveling staff on the plane, hold on let let people hear this. How I almost died on the air and you did nothing but stare at me. Go ahead. Excuse me. I get it. Although I got a cough. Good. They'll talk didn't talk. You just stayed quiet. Well. In my defense. There was a moment on the Lakers plan a couple of years ago where you almost saw someone else die. Yes. And John Ireland got up and tried to give that individual the Heimlich is this Billy Mack cannot doesn't like to. Right. He doesn't believe that is the case. I cannot confirm who it was. It wasn't all I know is that is what Ireland went over to do that. And it did not help any almost endangered that person further. So what I was doing was observing whether or not you were going to die, right and headed gotten any worse. I would have I was preparing to come over in your direction. And therefore, I was not as worried about continuing to talk on the broadcast and mean, and that's what happened, you know. Now, meanwhile, Tom Rinaldi is doing the coaches interview. Which would I'm with my guy, Nick nurse. And this should be you in that spot, honestly, doing the sideline interview. But I wouldn't be here with you Rinaldi is a great guy and everything, but like, you know, go make these infringing on my territorial make somebody cry Tom. Okay. He does make you cry. You know, that's that's what he's there for. He does make you. Is in the Firestone spot. He was on the show a couple of weeks ago, we talked about what did we all? We talked about tiger. Because he was at the master should be making us cry about tiger by doing package from the Gulf course. Yeah. Anyway. Yeah. Stay off my getaway from my boyfriend Nick nurse there Rinaldi. That's right. You did kind of claim Nick nurse guy man a couple of weeks ago. I just I mean, listen, I think he's a good coach. I don't think I don't know if he's a great coach, I guess we'll figure that out right together. But I just love that he's a normal person. Because I don't think a lot of coaches in professional sports NBA got a lot of normal guys. But he's like super normal almost abnormally normal where you're like, dude, you're a head coach while the motivational franchise. Yeah. But so in why why is that because it's his first year as a head coach. Tighten up that. He was never a player not necessarily tighten up. It's just that like by day less. Yeah. Because you because the more you even think about your career that the longer that you're on the air in the longer that you're in that spotlight, the Lunga that you're doing the interviews. You're you're doing the game speeches. It's not like it just hardens you to an extent. I think I guess so he's he's at the he's at the peak of that night. So glow down heart and go ahead. Well, it's not that. I don't have to gloat like I said, this is what we've seen in the past from harden who he has had he has had moments at the end of series, or at the end of games where the stuff that he does a throughout this regular season that works great and helps you into wins doesn't always work to the same degree of efficiency or in. He doesn't seem to have the same level of energy in these situations. So I wasn't like sitting there surprised, and therefore I don't need to to gloat. I'm not mocking or making fun. He's a great player. He is a perennial all-star. I had him on my first team like you were mocking him. When you text me last night. I wasn't Makia. I was forwarding. You a couple of texts like JD ski. At a memo about basically, implying that harden was nowhere to be found in the fourth quarter. And it is just strange that somebody who basically had the entire regular season does nothing but clear out in isolate was was all of a sudden nowhere to be found on the court in crunch time. When when Houston just needed a bucket, or that's all. So I don't wanna poorly. I will give you that as I have no other. I don't have a rebuttal Abbas. He didn't plan it happens. And he could I think actually I think that he will rebound and play well in game six I like what you did there. Yep. Rebound. So you're expect hardened to be fine. But I just it just it does sort of crystallize the point that I've been trying to make an art arguments throughout the season. Essentially about harden that some of the stuff that he does. Yeah. And you'll I think you'll acknowledge I will not been drawing a ton of fouls right after the controversy about game one because that's stuff. He he hasn't even really trying. I haven't really noticed that many Faouzi because he knows that he's not getting that those type of calls that he's going to get in the regular season. So he hasn't been been doing it as much therefore we haven't been talking you're focusing on it as much, and therefore, I guess that's the case where I've been wrong plenty this year. But I did say that that stuff was going to be limited in the postseason and therefore his affecting. This gets limited a little bit still pretty damn awesome, though. I've never argue that he's not an awesome player. He is. I just don't like when he goes over the line with all of the foul nine. Here we go. Now, we're getting there James harden unit. VP man, go to the rack more. Yeah. Brent Elettra dozen one hundred it's going to be cheating. Initially for foul. Give going say credits who because they got a lot of good defensive players that are throwing their bodies out of Brent. Are you liking like a kitchen or something like washing dishes on the radio? Oh, yeah. I could be on hold for you guys for a long time. So really simply put what'd you have for dinner nothing. I'm just cleaning up from yesterday. So really simply put my thinking is genie's kinda not really aspired to being president of anything other than media and PR. So the thing we need to do is get guillotine anytime. Somebody tries to grab too much power. Does something stupid. We just say get another one. And I was just watching on the jump and Richard Jefferson said one of these days, you'll get it. Right. And one of these days you will. It's just do we have to trust the same people with no background in what they're doing. Yeah. I mean, it's crazy. I'm with you. And hope you have a great night. And speaking of Richard Jefferson. He's coming up in formats.

Thank you happy anniversary the s._e._c. network. Thank you very much really enjoyed it as a channel my t._v.'s on the s._e._c. network most time to call in and be part of the other days especially day for the that were listed listen on the radio years ago though it's cool on tv i saw and i have a question <hes> <hes> my thought was thought hear people talking about what might be. The placement for alabama should next david entire. They had just a man on their staff in general. I mean he keep that program. Going you know brick by brick gone okay. I just had a little dig the teeth or have you considered comedy writing and i'm making fan asking acting all around my legitimate question last. Have you heard anything about chase is going to be back played. Forces were so thin on the offense lawn. I apologize you talking about tennessee's offensive line where okay <hes> tennessee traits net ah. I thought that that was that's. I haven't heard <hes> too much lately on on where he is but that's a critically important position. Asian garin tunnel last year was running for his life and i really hope tennessee can shore that up and i can tell you someone someone who hopes more than we journey knows how critical that is yes sir. Thank you great to have you on really do appreciate it. Let's continue with more phone calls and let's try joanne again. We had the conversation going earlier in in louisiana and we'd lost her joining their last yeah go right ahead hi. This is joanne. Thank you okay. I i found i want to thank you very much for <hes> your common carry about l._s._u. Alabama and congratulate you on your five five years. Thank you and i want to say something about your statement about l._s._u. Being <hes> one of the toughest teams that alabama's gonna play right okay i graduated from l._s._u. I believe purple and gold and any coach that beats alabama will have a job probably for life right and i think coach. Oh is the one that's going to do it. He's one of the most enthusiastic pro wpro l._s._u. Team that i have we have ever had now. I'm seventy three so i know all the coaches from way back acting listen join. You're absolutely right. I if he can pull that off. Thank you very much for the call you mentioned the anniversary and certainly that has been the seem all day then we'll be all night and we are especially honored and delighted to welcome the commissioner of the southeastern conference <hes> greg. Thank you commissioner thank you and <hes> this is quite <hes> quite a day. Thanks for being here just take honored but honored and delighted to good start <hes>. Let's talk about what this day means and what the significance significance <hes> of this marriage between the s._e._c. and e._s._p._n. And ultimately the s._e._c. network has has to <hes> to everyone. You know you watch social media today and see people react to you know it's either ben five years already or it's only been five years because in some ways it. It seems like it's existed for this long. Period of time and people have become comfortable with the s._e._c. Network is part of their lives and the vision to due to launch jointly and to do so e._s._p._n. As proven to be a wise move but the production value the content that's provided on our end the ability for people to have a conversation every day. It seemed like they react to it pretty well th they have at least been celebrating today. I don't know about the previous but but i i am interested did <hes> we had a clip here of of coaches especially from sports that don't get the type of attention and it seems like <hes> while we we obsess over the sports here and you you have to make sure everyone is happy but that's really where the impact i think has been. It's been for sports that never had had a voice sir or were placed to be seen her. Every football game has been televised in the s._e._c. really for decades what happened with the s._e._c. network is it was single-source saturday so you can watch all day from noon eastern until you know those seven overtime games until after midnight but the spring ring is really a testament to what's happened <hes> gymnastics on friday nights you look at the attendance parents of fact we had ten thousand dozen people at our championship last year i think is in part attributed to the exposure. The sport has received <hes> baseball and softball all the fact that people want to play here in an entirely different patterns and we were good before but i think we've moved to another level in those sports and and when you visit with all of our coaches the conversation is where do i fit into the s._e._c. network whether that's soccer volleyball equestrian track and field and again that's that's i think a testament to what was envisioned it creation that we'd be able the feature these sports where we've done it in a way that same high quality just like football and basketball. I've heard you addressed the current state of the medium and it's it's hard for anyone to understand what's going on because it's changed so much even in the five years but <hes> as you have traveled and i know you have around the country if not the world meeting with people. What have you learned about where things go from here. Well my world travels. I learned we haven't saturated the dublin. Mark didn't have with the lord mayor of dublin. We didn't get to the s._e._c. s._e._c. Network but that's a goal. We should have that as a goal. It's interesting to talk to media leaders who say i don't know what the future holds in these. Are you know top <hes> industry leaders who when you talk about is digital broadcast is at the traditional media entities we don't know but then i say what are we doing right and your name comes up and that's a testament to you. I mean but it's all seriousness you learn. It's not just about content. It's about connection with our fans and if anything that the network has allowed. It's allowed this connection. That's there every day in a real way almost personalized depending on how they approach the reviewing s._e._c. nation on a saturday <hes> game days there but we've established on campus of presence and another connection. That's personal and i think that's an incredibly important. Show in this was always based on live content so i can go back listening to chug gerber and mike's alive and burke magnus talking with justin connolly about it's a the network will be driven by live content and i think we've done that well and then you you jump off to you know we've got willie geist homecoming like one of the best moments watch night when he's telling this story about john angel which is like the favorite thing you've you've. I've never ever heard but for an s._e._c. Network or what you did with titus o'neil a few weeks ago. I mean what a powerful personal story in the depth of what's presented <hes> i think is is not only significant but meaningful and provides that that connection i described which which can be he lost amidst revenue and production households and and new media but that connection will be more important whether it's our traditional cable households or consumption through some digital media talk the commissioner on an incredible night and we all do remember commissioner that night five years ago and and <hes> i think the network listen it was the most successful launch in cable history so there was no anticipation of trepidation but from that moment looking forward. I'm interested in your eyes because you you were part of every conversation leading for years leading into it. Just take us through your own journey yeah well. I'm going to go back to like this time five years ago because it's been on my mind on a good side my wife and i became empty nesters this day five years ago. Our youngest daughter was in in college roles daughters in college so he watched the lawrence and we went out for a hamburger. That's how we celebrated but you know my predecessor. Mike's live was was not well that summer and and we didn't know in and i have thought around the launch <hes> for me personally when you you came to realize that something serious was is going on here and never imagining that we wouldn't be celebrating together today. In gerber's pond we jokingly oh kingly the call the pond behind this building <hes> you know people that made a contribution that we've lost so that's my but then you look over time and <hes> the the s._e._c. nation in phoenix s._e._c. now after the game so alabama's worn in sean hand jumps up on the set with you guys and and joe tessa tours there and you tim marcus and it seamless and it's like here's this comfortable reality for a student athlete and i i got to know sean on because of his leadership student athlete and it was fun and that's happened over and over you think about grant williams with a headset on after a game communicating meeting in representing himself in presenting his brand he's now with the celtics <hes> and tennessee basketball representing the s._e._c. and like you tyree last this year on a tough day around rally and and oxford but the guy from new jersey who's become an adult is we've watched and i knew him as a freshman freshman at old miss. Those moments are special and i think today is just one of those milestones. We're we're gonna flip. The page and it's like you win. The national championship and football on a monday and tuesday were playing basketball and you're back to work so we'll have a moment to eat some cake in pass around some cookies but then a my expectation tation is this is without a doubt the premier college conference network and i've communicated that jimmy petero of communicated that burke magnus chris turner and we'll communicate to america today. We're fully distributed <hes> most successful launches dimaggio like number and that will never go away. You know you're so you're not gonna have in this setting that that achievement eclipsed and we're incredibly proud of who we are and it is quite quite a celebration we appreciate. I know you'll so you'll be seen many more times tonight. As this night is a long way from being over thank you. It's always great to see you. Thanks for five years on atv. Who'd never a guy writing in what tree fort were at one time i certainly did. He's a network fixture so good for you. Congratulations to you as well. Thank you very much. We'll take a short break back with much more listening to the paul finebaum show podcast walking back to the show. Let's get to cade up next up. I got five on bees. How you doing brother k. allege too long. Ball hitter still stay on a five hole that well. They were thinking about bees when they let me show the s._e._c. network. It worked who came up with this idea. Did you ever envision backing. Birmingham will be here right here now. No no listen now you. You know you knew me pretty well okay. I thought i had <hes> really one of the most incredible jobs ever where i was and i thought it was and you know i didn't a big. It was going to get any better than they like to sell those store. Which i've i've been here on this show about over ten years now and one thing i can say it's a true blessing the me and i'm so grateful that i had a chance to see the show before it got to the s._e._c. network before <hes> sirius x._m. I i was a part of this show so before then so i i i have a different appreciation and see you know how the show has evolved and grown foam. You know this ten years on from for now. How is it you know i remember. I remember coming up doing your show at the same. I remember coming up there and we've seen it in your office in there waiting to get on the l. We send the little bit obvious you know we go in and go into this little bitty cramped studio and then i now remember going out there to like <hes> the commissioner say when you do on game sites and you go there friday and i can just see how the show i mean this is just is is mind blowing on just seeing how the show has involved since then and and can ask you this. Do you have the exact day i know. Do you have the zach. They don't win the firebomb on so so we need to celebrate that too interesting about that show k dub is it i mean i did it for a long time but it really did not know. I'm giving you a long answer to a question i don't. I don't think i know the answer. I mean it. I i know windisch show. I went on the radio but <hes> it was a two hour show six or seven at night and then developed and finally morphed into what it what it became when you have the year in a way you're this show is <hes>. It's been close to thirty years. Okay okay. I was just curious myself. You know like i said i haven't been worrying about thirty years. Yeah i mean i mean that's a blessing i. I know i won't need to tell you that but you know and like i say i want one more thing. You know i think squirrel hit on to about how kind of the calls those comments science over time. I think some did but you know that that goes with everything. I mean that'd be somebody. Come put a camera in front of your face in real life. Are you going to do some different things that you didn't use to do and i and and the platform that this show has given the call me especially you know what i'm saying just from. I'm being a foul ball call writing in in in alabama magazines and doing different stuff with the school just for being collartoo the show so i me <music>. This is a celebration of what we're doing now but i mean the the impetus behind. This show started a a long time ago and we haven't talked too much about it today but there was <hes> there was a there was some trepidation on my part because i know we we had. I didn't know what this company really wanted wanted a semblance of what we were doing back in birmingham but i don't. I don't know if they really knew what they were getting into. I think you hit it right there. I think they want some of it but i don't think they really wanted all because there's a lotta stuff there what was going on then they kinda dan you know once. We switched over to the the t._v. Stuff you know kinda. Dan did then go oh anymore. You know i i think being on the same page on there that kind of stuff you know what we used to do back and forth in the allegations and ability. There's this show is different <hes>. I'm really proud of what everyone here has done but no this was a <hes> far more dangerous jurors show back then far more days and some of these people i mean don't get me wrong. Oh won't you know people dimissed understands this because i've been out of the loop for a little bit. I've been listening. I mean here but <hes> you know. I ain't trying to be like one of those calls. All begging day was great. It was great but ah i mean it was dangerous bait. They're walking the dog alley by yourselves back. You have too many friends and allies. I think i told the story. It's a legend a couple of months ago but <hes> your remember that day at auburn don't you. I cannot forget it yeah. Do you remember yeah. I remember <hes> all of a sudden. I'm try- i just got finished doing a television show with rick carly and i was trying to get from one place as to the other and there were about thirty thousand auburn fans and a couple of them decided that that was going to be the last day of my life and until you and you en- legend in a couple of other guys uh intervened and made sure that i was able to find safety if the if if i wasn't there i wouldn't believe star somebody was you're telling that story and say they just doing that for for for for the radio the t._v. Now this is something that really helped me. Real life power was painted. They do that day. I felt the danger for power and i really felt like i had to step in and i would do it again. I do it again if i had to. Well you know the truth is. I don't know if i could have gotten through that crowd. I think you might have my have with literally in germany. It was dangerous. I mean the still there they go on now and empower. You and some of the people were common and say yeah they ready ready to do. They're still for a one k. Don thank you very much on one level. I'm really glad we are where we are. We still have a lot of fun here and a lot of stuff. Steph is thrown around but but lives are not at stake quite to the degree were back then fortunately <hes> we are heading to a break <hes> another thirty minutes to go on this anniversary special. You're listening to the paul. Finebaum show podcast with the capital adventure card. You are an unlimited double miles on every purchase everyday and you can use those miles toward travel expenses like flights hotels rental cars and more just book and pay for your travel using your venture card and redeem your miles toward the cost capital one. What's in your wallet. Credit approval required capital but alone bank u._s._a._a. Back we are here on what has been a memorable. <hes> dates not over another couple hours of coverage on the t._v. Side marty smith joined just marty. I know you've been off the book tour. I'm really interested in. It's been quite a ride. It was wildly fun unsuccessful and enlightening. I learned a lot and everybody was so kind include you. I've been so horrible by the. I'll tell you what i learned earned the number. One thing i learned is how selfless my friends are because folks like you and dan laboratory and those guys and scott van pelt gave me these platforms to share that which i wrote and it just means so much to me and i appreciate it's been awesome. It's just been an awesome experience yeah well. I mean i have some recollection of having done it but i would also think it's exhausting. I will admit that it's exhausting. I think in one <hes> i think last thursday i did thirty eight ten to fifteen minute e._s._p._n. E._s._p._n. radio affiliate hits and it's awesome. It's a blessing because we got to get the message out there but i'm telling you what after twenty twenty five and you're just talking talking to yourself that way. It gets to be a little much but i appreciate everybody giving me that platform to you do when you do all those types of things so you get a good <hes> look into how how radio works in an area. Oh yeah but i mean look it was so fun because everyone was interested in not only the stories about the individuals that you and i get to interview and some of the more iconic can accomplished athletes and sporting figures of our time but also my family and when they're interested in that and it's something that you're so passionate about. It's this message. You want to convey and they're giving you that time. It's awesome and i will tell you this. This is the coolest part about it to me is the feedback. The feedback from the fans is that from the readers that it made them consider parts of their own lives that they realized that they had been negligent about whether that's you know just telling your spouse that you appreciate what they do and you appreciate their support of you that kind of thing so it's been extremely family fulfilling and i'm i'm floored so and that's a guys like you gave me a shot. Thank you well. <hes> in writing a book is not easy and i think when you go through it by the end of the day it's like any any writing is tough period but but the book is is is like swallowing awale twenty for this audience you know the i've had the opportunity to spend time with nick sabin in disarmed settings whether that's it is place lake burton or whether that's even in his own car going to work on l._s._u. Week one of the most important weeks of his his year especially a year like that when at the time l._s._u. was number two in the country and bama was number four in the country and we got off on this tangent about our fathers fathers and the lasting impact of that relationship and how despite the fact that he lost his father entirely too young and so did i we carry those lessons with us every every day and how indelible those lessons are and how every single thing we do and this is the case in my life. I wonder what he thinks and how i so wish i could just pick up that phone right there and ask him what he thinks and i have a thirteen year old son now man was tough on me man and he expected a lot of me and he demanded a lot of me and i resented that for a long time and i'd give anything to have the opportunity right now to call him and say a i get it because i have a thirteen year old son of my own and you're trying so hard to mold them into empathetic folks who contribute and who care about other people and who have passion and in a world. That's unforgiving where you lose a hell of a lot more than you win and get it now. I know what eighty was hard on me and i wish i could tell him and those are the kinds of things with her own son very very transparent with him about about mistakes that i've made in my life and things i want back and even when i'm hard on him and tell him that i'm i'm hard on you for a reason and i know you don't get it now and i didn't get it when i was thirteen. I didn't get it when i was twenty five. I didn't have cameron until i was twenty nine and i always will be like why was he so tough on me. You know it was one of those deals where you know you go score thirty points in high school basketball game and he wants to know why he turned it over four. It's one of those things you know so. I didn't get it but i get it. I get it now and i try to take that that breadth of knowledge in depth of knowledge in raising my own and that's relatable able to a lot of folks out there listening we all kind of battle that his parents in this world where there's so much minutia and there's so much common at our kids every second of every single day they need to know you love him but you gotta love. 'em tough sometimes <hes> one last thing on this book so i mean book. A book never doesn't end <hes> <hes> how now with the season knocking on the door <hes>. How do you navigate it. I'm gonna i'm going to share with so i have the great opera s._e._c. network and lee fitting steph julie and everybody involved in what we're doing and have given me an amazing opportunity this fall with you and with tim with marcus when laura is away on maternity leave. I'm going to have the opportunity to host s._e._c. Nation and what an unbelievable opportunity for somebody like me who's <unk>. Who's never done that kind of thing before. I cannot wait and i feel so fortunate to have that chance and while we're out there with the people i'm going to you spend that time with them. <hes> once our shows complete and share that book with them and so it's not gonna end. I'm going to have that thing with me. This entire tire fall as we're going throughout the southeastern conference and i'm going to share those stories with them because again. What's what's floored me. The most is <music> folks telling me man. I was not willing to admit that to myself and the fact that you were willing to admit it to yourself and put it in print made me do that. And what an awesome response i it's still new. I mean book just came out where we could go week. Ago seems like it was longer but someone who's in front of the camera all the time interviewing very famous people <hes> is it in any way overwhelming <hes> to think about the process <hes> it's it's overwhelming to think about the fact that it's now there. It's this. It's this piece of yourself and i'll tell you what you've experienced this. I think i might have said this to you last last week. Forgive me i did a lot of these but something that was revelatory to me is my friends and music always told me when they were putting out a new album main. You're anxious on anxious because you're taking all of this joy in all of this hurt and this this vulnerability your pouring all of it into this piece of art that you're are putting out there for the world to consume and therefore because you've made yourself vulnerable that way and it is truly a piece of you. You have to be okay with whatever korean regime comes back right and i never got it until last monday night. When i was sitting there thinking about okay this is very real and whatever energy comes back to me has to be okay and i'm so appreciative to everyone of you folks who bought it and who have shared that energy with me because it's been overwhelming well-made lenient i or so thrilled that it's resonating the way it is and the process was crazy. It was crazy z. to think i can go. Write a book and hotel rooms after uncovered alabama texas say an finding that creative energy is not easy and it was a challenge for me but we got got. It and i think that it's doing it's doing more than i thought it would so i'm thrilled. I can't wait to be with you and see so many mccain way. We're gonna have so so much fun the energy we. I can't wait to feel that live audience energy that i've been jealous of you guys. It's jealousy that you guys get to have that. Live have group of people out there that not only adore you and are so or so thankful to be in the presence of u. and tim and laura and marcus but there's that an energy exchange and that's very real and i can't wait to feel it. I haven't had that so get right. I'm gonna screw up. Y'all get ready <music>. I'm gonna make some mistakes and i expect he's make fun of me when it happens but i just can't wait to feel that energy. It'd be fun. We are officially out of time for of this program. We we appreciate all of you for being part of it. <hes> some really interesting guests <hes> today. We'll see you right here tomorrow.

I one was nineteen seventy eight. It was a TV movie called are you in the house alone? Which was also connected real estate. Say you do that. Well, very scary. Do you what do you take the part home with you? Because I read one time that you that Jerry Lewis when you did great balls of fire, you were taking that home. Yes. That was the last time movie home that one ended in rehab, so. Out to might work. All right. Well, explain this to me because you've had a couple of movies that have come dangerously close to putting you in rehab because why at our right you you had to eating disorder because you're losing so much weight there.

Then sway was Philly crocodiles here Veritas living room with his eleven year old son watching Tiger Woods as I have. I ever heard you interviewed talking about fear drawing you and you talking specifically about the fear of playing Ronald Reagan in a bio pic. What is the greatest fear? Dennis Quaid has had before accepting a role, and why do you gravitate toward the fear? Get gonna chill affair my sign. What I'm offering something? It usually tells me that I should take it because it's going to be something that takes me out of my comfort zone and. You know, I think we all we all need that. You know, we've who might have the same haircut both of us guys for so long and then get out of the comforts of and try something new and different.

It's obvious to them. You should switch because. Yes. Switching to gyco is a no brainer. Oh, no. It's the dust bunnies. Only natural Prentice on the lung dust on his run along donlevatar. Stugatz. Disgusting. Stugatz. Yep. These live at our. Show with this Stu gods on ESPN radio sue poverty. I saw Alrighty hit there yet. What are you covering stupidity? This. We we had a lot of fun. We actually released it at like seven AM this morning. So hopefully, people are enjoying it. We had a reunion of a show. I did on the weekends about eighteen months ago. We can Ave shins. And so Michael junior popular it was very popular weekend show you were doing with my goal junior. People were said to see that go away. It would I it started as a football only show, and the people that he SPN liked it so much on the audience that they made it a year round show. And so we enjoy doing it. We didn't joy doing it. Sunday mornings from seven to nine AM. You didn't enjoy doing it Sunday mornings from seven that? You're doing it from your house. Didn't enjoy do. I didn't enjoy it. Yeah. It was right. I was right in the middle of my bought mitzvah, circle, you know, like the whole circuit was going on. And like I was out Saturday night late every single night. And there were times. I mean, there was a show or go. Check your said Joe up because he was over. I mean, I don't care. I'll say it because we spent the entire show looking for go jumped as we brought the the cast back together, and we have appearances from Scott van pelt second appearance on stupidity, and we'll Cade makes an appearance and by appearances they smoke cigarettes with Mike Mikey see at a dumpster on the Bristol campus. So you have that to look who is Mike you see because I'm not from this report up. Right. And Mikey see you guys would do smoke break with Mikey see, and he he's rough around the edges. He's very rough around the the edge. He'd go out to smoke cigarettes near Bristol dumpster during before after the show whenever he felt like doing and it was sad to you yet. So I decided how you might as well go out there and make some content out of it. And so we did a weekly thing where he would bring someone from ESPN after the dumpster with him. And he would interview them while he was having a cigarette. And he did that this week with van pelton, and we'll Cain. We just had a lot of fun. It's it's I think it's the way podcast you'd be very conversational bounces off. All over the place. It's completely unorganized. And maybe that's not the way it should be. I don't know. I don't know what you're like. I love that. He wants to parlay his laziness into its how podcast should be the future of audio. It should be as lazy as I. This is fun though. I'm telling you people are going to enjoy this. It was it was a lot. I didn't. I did enjoy that show. I was a fan of weekend object used to tell me that might never do. Like, I would have to pry things at Mike. Mike used to unsolicited used to tell me. Hey, you guys have a good show on the weekend return of that shows to potty downloaded. It's the triumphant return. You guys haven't done a version of that since then. Yep. This is the first episode since since the last one. Yeah. And it might be last episode ever. We think we don't know or you'll do seven more in the next night. I gotta tell you. It was easy. I mean, they didn't have to do anything. Removed last week. It was Haggas area and this week. It is Mike Golic junior PC, Mikey as Scott v belt that turning all of ESPN like this, Mike what what granted he's just cackling. Oh, but my you know, what about this? Stugatz has climbed to ESPN on the backs of you guys do all the work for me. I'll just I'll just show up and I'll laugh in the background. And now he's doing it with actually SPN employs. Now, he's doing it with the stars where he's just getting everyone at the company to be as janitor. Listen, I laid all the groundwork did all the hard work. And now, I have you see doing we did all the hard work, and you didn't lay the groundwork work a billion, Mike, laid the groundwork. That is totally fair. But what I'm saying is now that they have laid the groundwork. And they did a phenomenal job. I could just sit back little cruise control action. I have all these platforms that I've decided not to do anything with them. Except share the platforms with people who are more entertaining than people to do the work for us. What you've got the last three episodes. He throwing Billy. I want you in next episode three straight weeks. He's told me this. I do. He's just waiting for the spot where everyone else falls through. And then he asks you gone retainer, go back to doing the work for him that he won't pay you for the same way. It's been for the last ten years. Well, listen, all this was all about bringing in friends and family. Okay. It was all about you not doing any of the work yourself. That's exactly right. Sean Miller you're down with Shawn Miller. Stupidity. Check it out is a good one. They're all good. They're great. Really? I have a blast putting them together. People will enjoy this. They really will Shawn Miller your problems with him. Go back a long way. And now God, it is amazing to see how fast all the dirty business in this sport. And in sports in general has gotten out in front of us in a way that makes us all immune to it. We don't even care anymore. You're talking about FBI wiretaps you're talking about, you know, sworn testimony were crayton's paying one hundred and ten thousand dollars for a starter. And now you find out. Yeah. That's the going rate. If you want you want eight and to play for you, the going rate is you've got to pay about a hundred ten thousand dollars to for an average college starter. And it just shows you how bogus the whole system is Dabo Swinney gets ten years nine ninety million dollars and the only way to pay. These guys is in. The shadows. So they're doing it. It's being proven that they're doing it. The great injustice, I've been railing against that the NCAA doesn't pay any of its players and still is working with the non television rules before billions of dollars and TV money made an appearance we're still adhering to the rules of amateurism from bygone time, but they are being paid. They're being paid in a way, that's obvious. They're being paid in a way that the FBI is now saying is illegal. It's Dan what's amazing about this to me is I've just operated under your Sasha for a very long time that all this stuff was going on that all of this stuff. This type of stuff was going on. And what's amazing to me is I guess everyone else was as well. Because we have finally arrived at a point where you have the head coach at one of the premier college basketball schools in the country, the university of Arizona, you have him on wiretap you of an assistant coach saying he paid a player. Ten thousand dollars a month. Nobody cares. He might keep his job that seems hard to believe that is that the way we're going to do this. Now is that the way we're going to do it? Now where wiretaps aren't even gonna get a non champion coach fired donlevatar, LA, LA, LA, LA, LA, LA, LA, LA stugatz. Hey, hey, hey goodbye. These live with our show with a Stu gods on ESPN radio. ESPN radio's presented by progressive insurance. Guests on the Dan lebatardshow appear via the shell Pennzoil performance line. And nice sportscenter update Danny age has suffered a mild heart attack Milwaukee on Tuesday night. He received the media medical attention as expected to make a full recovery. Jesus. Or the two hundred women's hockey players have announced they will not be playing in the professional league next season. With sources saying the players hope to apply pressure on NHL to support a woman's league with financial and. With financial and infra at some sort of structural resources. Finally Jaden Smith will play an alternate reality version of Kanye west and the forthcoming Showtime series ganja west jaded Smith, scooter, Braun and writer Lee song Jin are reportedly among the show's executive producers enough Gandhi Smith for all the latest headlines and information tune into sports center on ESPN radio all throughout the day. You do a better Stu gods than Stu gods? God's is out because he is preparing for highly questionable. You could catch him. He's not right. He's just out feeling scam in the parking lot. He just say he's he's complaining about being tired more than he ever has. He's working less than he ever has. It's amazing to watch. And he's making more than ever. Yes. He's preparing for highly question. So Chris Mannix is with us. And I'm not sure how to introduce him whether it's from Sports Illustrated or design he'll tell us in a moment. But first I have to discuss with him because I've been told that he's an enormous game of thrones fans, the cinematographers defending himself saying, look, it's not my fault the scenes were too dark. It's the fault of you people and your televisions that stink. Get better televisions. We do a bigger show that our show is can't even be televised because it's bigger than television. So Chris Mannix as a game of thrones fan. Where do you side with this refrigerated with your television last Sunday, or what did did he really say that he didn't say like that? But he did say, it's your fault. Not mine. That's exactly how we wanted it to look he is he is defending that what's happened. Here is basically game of thrones thinks it's too big and better than television. And they're probably right. Probably. But I, you know, I was so into watching last Sunday that I I kept having to move angles in my living room because I thought that might be something wrong with my TV that that it was you know, like most people I I don't have cable anymore. I watch everything kind of on, you know, direct TV now or watching on the on HBO go, and I thought maybe it was the streaming that was coming in that that somehow my internet wasn't working properly. But here everybody else said they thought the leading sucks, so no, it's not it's not the TV's fault. It's it's the way it was produced was that the one quibble you'd have to have what you'd say that Chris. But they're saying, no, your fault, your cheap television. Get your brightness. Right. We make great movies your fault. I mean. Okay. I mean, I think my TV's pretty good. I got I I am vested decent amount of money in a good television. He's arguing that his cinematography is pretty good. He knows how to be a cinematographer. He's arguing hey get. Up to speed get up with me your fault. Not mine. I what do you think? Do you think it was the cinematography or the I haven't caught up I'm on season? Three episodes seven like, I'm not I'm not here yet. I'm no, I'm not there. I don't know, man. I I I I was disappointed because I there were times during the that that whole episode that I didn't know who is fighting who wind you know, that the dragons are up in the air. Spoiler alert fight each other. And I'm your fun who which one are thought. Apologize to to George Martin and his cinematographer apologize, George has got George gotta keep riding. What's it? I'm gonna let George let goats like and finish the next book Chris Mannix with us. How am I supposed to introduce you does own because you're a part of this. Canelo. Alvarez Daniel Jacobs fight. But every time I've ever talked to you you've been sports Illustrated's. Yeah. If you wanna talk NBA Sports Illustrated it when you switch the boxing. It's it's over at the zone. And so tell me what you're doing with this fight because dozen does own made this made. Canelo. Alvarez the highest paid athlete in sports. Why are you a part of this? What are you a part of? And what are you excited about being a part of it? Yeah. Yeah. I'm on the part of the broadcast team the best way to describe it as kind of profanity with HBO boxing for years, kind of a max Kellerman type of role rare on the analyst. And I do all the post by interviews. I've been covering boxing, Dan. And sl for the better part of the last ten years. You know, it's it's obviously not as as big as it once was. So there are fewer you're writing opportunities there, but I've been into boxing for forever. And and this is the biggest of the year. I mean, there's there's no other way to put it. I mean, the middleweight division is probably the number one and number two division, all of boxing and Gilo Alvarez and day Jacobs. Are you know one too in that division right now? You know, it's a title unification fight. It's two guys in their prime stylistically. I think it's gonna work because of the way both these guys five will make for an exciting fight. I it it's it's it's a there's a lot of buzz for this fight every everyone of every piece of it services. Can you explain to me the business of boxing, and what's happening with these rights fees and? How it is that a place? An upstart like does own can make Conover is the highest paid athlete in sports as these companies fight over boxing broadcasts get it's an arms race. And you know, this, you know, working for ESPN that that, you know, live rights are everything, you know, having right to something matters in today's ever changing media world, and yet disown which has been a company that is successful worldwide. I mean, they're not just they're not a fledgling startup. They've been overseas in Europe and given no no no not much of a presence in America. Right. No, none. None whatsoever. Not until August of this past year. So they're coming up, you know, the one year anniversary of their debut ING in the US is is this summer. So what what they're trying to do. Right now is get a foothold American sports landscape and the only rights that were up for grabs rebutting rights and combat sports rights because they do have the may as well and the long term goal zone which. Have you know, deep pockets? I it's it's like I said it's been in business for a while. But long-term plan for zone is not just to be involved in combat sports. They like combat sports they want to keep doing it. But eventually when they get their subscriber base up. They want to go after NFL rights. They want to go after NBA streaming rights. They've already got kind of a toehold in baseball with that sort of MLB red zone show that they do at night. So they're trying to be the, you know, to take on Amazon or somebody else that wants to be a player in the stream where I think in the mainstream audience, Dan is probably going to hear a lot more about zone in the coming years if their plans go accordingly, but explain to me what it's going to do for boxing because it's been a minute since there was an arms race in boxing. I mean, what it does for fighters is get paid because they are willing to shell out money for guys like Canelo for checkups for naughty Lofton who has his first flight on zone in June with the plan being if Cannella wins, and if galop can wins in June. They'll meet again for the third time in September of this year. What it means is that they're willing to pay a premium for big fights and not charge pay per view BFE's. It's really what it boils down to is. It's twenty dollars a month ago month by month or one hundred dollars a year, if you wanna pay for a yearly package, and look I I don't like being a show for anybody. But if you're even if you're just into pay per views, you know, you're paying seventy five eighty dollars for a pay per view, you can get close to that on a full year package with his own. So they're they're trying to to basically knock pay per view off the market by by making their model the model that that is consistent throughout boxing. So can you explain to the layman who's listening? Because I don't understand the business of it. How can you pay Cannella Alvarez that way, and how quickly do you make your money back with this business model? Well, you don't make your money back until you reach a certain number of subscribers. And I don't know what the subscriber base is right now, I'm not really pretty to what they they want to get to to break, even but you know, that they would like to. I'm sure have over a million subscribers after this fight. I think by the end of the year when you have the Conover school often fight if that happens they'd like it over two million subscribers right now. I mean, you're I would have to guess that you're in the red that it's sort of a a sunken cost to try to get to that certain number of subscribers. But once they get there, and they can keep collecting those monthly subscription fees. I know they've they've shown another countries that this business model can work for them. They're profitable in many other countries, and they're taking that same approach in the US. We've got less than a minute left watching over as Dan. Daniel jacobs. It's dissolve on a Chris Mannix with us on ESPN radio. There are three heavyweights with three different promoters. What's going to happen with the heavyweight division it brutal? It's brutal in its disappointing because you've basically got one five zone one type to FOX and Showtime, and one type ESPN, and I have no hope right now that we'll see any of those guys fight each other for lease the rest of this year and probably into next year as well. It is the most disappointing thing in boxing because they often upset as goes the heavyweight division as goes, they're monsters, the three of them need to be fighting each other Riems should be. They should be having great round Robin type tournaments with Ali did with frills same time. All three of them fight. Let's go all three of them fighting at the same time. No, not yet. Don't even make you do it. Okay. That's right. Kate match. Maybe I'll I'm with them with you this. Thank you. Chris always good talking to you. Thank you for making the time anytime donlevatar during the breaks got just stay. Airing at the television, and he says to Asia will drowsy hooch probably go without saying isn't someone who can hear what he saying? Because he's on television. He's not in the room. Stu gotz. Looks at the TV and says, whoa, JR. That's a nice shirt and jacket combo still gods. I'm crazy. These these live with our show with their Stu gods on ESPN radio. If you missed any of our interviews today, check out check out them out on let's say who wrote this doing a great job. Roy gave checkout them out on demand. Look, right. Check out them out on demand in the Dan Le Batard podcast brought to you by capital. One capital. One is reimagining banking offering accounts with no fees or minimum that can be open in five minutes. Capital one. What's in your wallet Capital One and a member FDIC? Oh, no gods left his Twitter open. And now Saddam knows here and have added. I guess I just wrote simply book you could keep tweeting you never leave your Twitter account open. So go ahead and have added whatever's to got says tweeting over the next ten minutes. He doesn't know what he's tweeting because I took a picture of him actually preparing for highly questionable. Good for him. He is actually preparing he will be on highly questionable at four thirty eastern. Sodano has been with us all week long. And today Sodano is on around the horn. Yeah. Good for him, except he has a job. He's supposed to be doing right now. Wrecked. Look. That's it. Where's Mike like, generally speaking? Do you not see what's been happening around here where people just leave and grabbed more money wherever it is. They could get it. Don't you have HQ next? Also this. I also have cue next you're here. That's correct. Doing my job and find by the way, you can tweet me at Sodano ESPN, and you can tell me what I should tweet from stugatz as account which is open here in front of. That's good thinking. So for ten minutes is off preparing for highly questionable. So since he's not doing his job what he wants to do here while again, just collecting more money from as many different places as he can get it while not doing his job. We will send stuff out from his account without his knowledge because he's buried in paperwork back. They're doing research. So before we update the polls, though Sodano is complaining about Sodano as a verb to get Sadan owed on around the horn is to not be allowed to do around the horn anymore. Mike Ryan insulted you with something that was never meant to be overheard. He just you guys are saying it behind my back basic fault. It's my fault in that Mike said we were family around here bikes that you don't want to get Saddam privately. And right. I brought it out on air and said this. Gotch? You don't wanna get Saddam to me in the makeup room hit. Well, that's the thing. Right. I'm getting blamed for that. But stugatz just said flatly to sit on his face. I've been Sodano. It was Mike actually wasn't vice Mike so see Dan in the game of competitive banter, like around the horn, there is a pecking order, so I live in Los Angeles. And there are four people that do around the horn from Los Angeles from one studio Bill plash key a legend from the LA times, obviously Ramona Shelburne, one of our SPN NBA insiders also in LA native, and of course, being a kinds all been on the show for a lot longer than I have. So I sit humbly aside waiting for my opportunities. What happened Chris? I don't think. I don't think Saddam does anything humbly. Yeah. I'm sure that's why. And then by the way, go check out the stats at around the horn dot com who has the best points per game or appearance on around the horn history. Yours truly, okay, I've actually. And so I will on that one suck on that one terrible thing to suck on. Think about that the stats on around the horn. But now with Stu gods end. Look, you've always said this, Dan, what makes him endearing is the fact that he has the qualities of someone we'd all hate. But yet we still love. It's weird. Man. Right. I mean, that's just the reality. We love him the most unlikeable lovable person in the history of love. It's not even debatable. Like again. I will stay on the phone with stugatz for an hour. And all we're doing is laughing and also kind of like pinky and the brain trying to figure out how to take over the world and he's filled with lies in scams. Right. Yes. Oh, well, when you weren't here, I came in and did the show with the guys, and we did these seven Stu guts reveals it's kind of like the seven deadly sins, including once where he almost left you for me. That's right. We tried that about ten times and realize the money stays here. Tried to try to use me that's has Lowry's against you. He's used like seven of my friends is leverage. Yes me. I just realized that Stu tomorrow is going to be jealous of Sodano for filling in force through. Gods on the radio show. Tadesse correct. Yeah. That's correct. And by the way, you can also catch me on the jump tomorrow on Friday to Stu gods, if another place that's through God's isn't allowed. Well, I got him on the jump. Oh my God. Well, that's it. They've got a great see. Stugatz. I don't I think the only person at the company's got spheres is actually Saddam's. I know where the bodies are very literally. I literally pointed that out I was here a couple of months ago. And if you you don't you think we're lying. This is what I'm telling you. It's unfortunate. We don't have more time to discuss this some other times Sodano helped Stu gods. Hide a dead body.

I'm happy to say that where shooting for the world, by the way, and we strive to save time stress and money when it comes to your child's higher education. So that's a little background on myself and college lift off from I do this podcast. I really wanna offer. Families from salad vice when it comes to planning for college and higher education because there's so much misinformation out there. The purpose of this podcast is to dispel, the Mets and misinformation, and really help families. So let's talk about college essays bit. That's what we're gonna do today. I'm sitting here again with page manager Clive planet and Emma Levi's. So we're going to talk about the essay writing process. And of course, the question that you're probably asking Aaron why in the world are you talking about? Essay writing and may the beginning of may because of the fact that this, this whole thing is a wildcard at least feels like it to most students in most families. I mean, we have a lot of kids that do really excellently in school. We have kids have very good GPA's or valid Tories. Or if not close to a NS. ACS scores atop ninety percentile and the Neville is, what is really saying in the end in how well is being done because the truth is, if you're a looks like it was written from you. Like when you were twelve years old, all that stuff go straight off the window, and that's year's worth of work, and time and effort that you put in your school, and everything else, and all the news you done, and you're a is kind of caring your banner, and if it's if it's off, it's if it's wrong, and you spent an hour doing it right before you need to turn it, and that's problem. And so we're gonna talk about that today in the outs. So figured let's start off with some things. We want avoid let's put it that way, some of the downsides of when this is done wrong. What are you guys thing? Definitely procrastination is a thing that I see a lot with even I feel like so my seniors last year that I had worked with for a while. We'd been talking about the sl really pushing them to try to get started on it. And it was that I think you're right. They were just scared of that. And I think that's where a lot of a lot of people that procrastination comes in, because I don't even know where to start. I'm so scared of it. I'm so scared of doing it wrong. Just don't do it right, nothing. I don't have to think about it. And that's the absolute wrong way to go about it. So starting earlier. Exactly. So we're talking about this may because the comment prompts are out. They've been published doing exactly so that's something that you can start doing brainstorming on, now an August first happens, and the common up opens up, you can just plug that right in there. You're good done before you're even starts. So that's why we focus within college lift off on doing writing center work really in the summer before. Exactly. There's no reason to wait. And I mean what we tend to see as what I don't. On what I don't want to happen is for students come in be super passionate about an essay, that's just the wrong fit the wrong fit for the prompt the wrong fit for who they are as a person. The biggest thing the biggest thing that we wanna see an essay is showing change over time. What did it look like before? What did they do differently now? What is the outcome? That is a big part of what colleges wanna see from you, are, you learning are you growing are you the same person that you were at twelve because if so they probably don't have a place for you. Right. But if you if you can show that you're making changes over time. Right. Or that you, you know you've struggled with something come out stronger on the other side of it. Or if you if there's something I one of the promises about, you know, something that you're super passionate about, like the you know, you would give up anything to do. You know, I wanna know. Why, why are you passionate don't say, yeah. I loved us yet. I love it. I love it. Doesn't really tell us enough about why you love it. Why it keeps you from sleep? Being at night, or makes it possible for you to sit and one of our kids wrote, this great essay about sitting in, in a hotel room during a Bekasi writing pieces of music that, that he needed for like a spring concert, and I remember I in reading his work, I was sitting there with him. I totally understood why it was more fulfilling for him to sit in this hotel room and just craft this, this piece of music than it was to be out with his family doing fun stuff. So, and that happened that magic that you're talking about and that happens from planning ahead of time. And like doing writing an outline doing pre writing and making sure that you liked the direction that you're going to feel good about it, because you can't write this amazing essay in one day, and I feel like a lot of kids, and you can kinda get down on yourself as a writer a little bit, too. Well, maybe I don't this promise. Well, or I can't come up with supporting details and ideas. And that's not true. You just have to take time, very DA, December, right to come up with them. It Rome wasn't built in a day. Right. You've got a like, let that magic idea for supporting detail come to you. When you're laying in bed or whatever. Exactly. And see in the problem is not everybody's a writer, right? So we've got plenty of students that are English and writing or not their thing, even more reason to do what you just said. Because we can't allow this one thing to sink the whole ship for that particular student, whoever that may be you. You've got all the all the stuff that you've already done. And you've now allowed a day to kind of right the Sesay or a couple of in the in the again, because appearance that don't really know fully, how this thing works, but we're telling you now this is just as important, imagine if you've got a resume from somebody, and it was stout. And then you got a, a cover letter where there were misspellings all over it. The, the grim, the grammatical set of it was all to hell him back, and it didn't make any sense. Would you hire that person never, but the resume was stout? But you would never know that that's the same thing here. We've got to be able to make sure. With this really matches with the student is really going after and what they're really trying to do what they're trying to say and this is honestly why we've created and really enhance a special this year writing center and what that really is gonna mean for us going forward. I'm sell excited about our work in writing center. So I did a lot of Eddie editing last year with the essays and, and I'm still doing some editing. We still have some kids pumping out scholarship. Essays. Oh, it's it's been a super busy season and what I know from doing this editing work is how important it is for even strong writers to sit down with somebody and collaborate. So you just you know, a lot of times you have an idea in your head and it's just kind of stuck in there. And you can't quite pry it out to share it in the best way possible, you know. And you think that you've been very clearing explanation? And then you feel like you're too wordy because you've over explained something where, but I've come in and I've read it. I'm like, I think this is what you mean. But I'm not reading this on his paper until one of the nicest things about working in a writing center is having that collaboration having that chance to do some real sit down work with somebody and really go over the parts of your essay that you feel are your weak point. One of the nice things that will do them writing centers. We'll sit down actually before you turn an piece of writing, you'll fill up this intake form. You'll indicate how long you've worked on the essay what you feel strong points are. What you're worried about specifically. What are you most concerned about is it like do you just need to brainstorm new ideas? Do are you worried about the organization of the essay, are you worried about just the nitty gritty like punctuation, spelling grammar that kind of thing because I don't want to come in and told all over your essay when if you feel that your idea is, is where it's going and just knowing what it is. And you feel that you're struggling with really helps me help you so absolutely. And so, in that same vein all those things go into it. We've got a coal staff, that we're getting ready to bring on board with this, too so excited. I think I say that all the time, but I'm so excited about our writing staff. So we are bringing in some top notch people from the university from both the writing center, and we have this terrific journal, editor who's coming on board to help us with the editing that will do you know, the, the headed there's a lot of editing to be done. And one of the nice things that I think makes makes college liftoff distinct in this market is that we will dedicate an editor to you. So you'll have a writing center person who will help you bring one piece of writing from its earliest rough draft to it's completed product and there won't be three different people taking a look and giving you different ideas, maybe sending you on different directions. You'll have one person who will very be very streamlined, and you'll be able to reach out to them and you, you can either work. Virtually or you can sit down with them. There are a lot of different options, but the nice thing is that they'll have a good sense of where your ideas are, and what you're hoping to accomplish with this essay and they'll be able to take you to a completed product that you're very proud of. That's a, that's a good point. Because how many times of the three of us run into issues where the student is put their essay through five people mum English teacher? This person Johnny from down the street and then us and everybody gives their two cents in everybody's two cents thinks that they're two senses, the one that matters the most and. The students got love them. Don't know any better that that advice from Johnny down the street or from even from the parents, some side. I'm not a writer. I have no business Selami kids what to do when they're say no business at all. You know. So it's, it's, it's one of those things where it's like. You don't wanna send a eight people, truthfully a barely won a Senate through two, and that's the point of the writing center for us is that you can have somebody devoted that no one is already professional writer, period. That's what they do. They're, they're coming from a place where they're already editing collegiate level work on a day-to-day basis. And we want our kids to have collegiate level, work ready to go. That's one of the soft skills that we provide to our kids. Right. I totally agree Aaron and I feel like a lot of what happens to when you're essay starts getting passed back and forth, a lot of people and you got a bunch of opinions. Is it manifest doubt and this didn't themselves about the direction that they're going, so they don't end up feeling confident anymore? And as that was probably great to begin with, or it was on, on good path. And again, like the point of the essay is to show that you have the writing skills to do collegiate level work, and then you can Pona thoughts and skills in that particular way, truth is most of the people you pass through. Don't have that, you know that that's not the background. They're not coming from a place where the you know. Producing work specifically for college of that level in a writing on a database, again use myself, I don't so full team that does a great job of this and I get sick back in my phones, and you guys tell me what to do in that. But yeah. Again, going back to like this is a great soft skill that we make sure that our kids have along with other things like communication skills in general. I feel like it's something that I always liked to think about that change that I see over time with my kids at star sophomores, juniors to where they leave as seniors. And I'm always so impressed with their growth as a person, and as a student and all like all around, which I feel like one just has to do a lot with going from age fifteen age, seventeen but also having to sit in a room with someone one on one and having a conversation about their future. I think is something that they all kind of grow a little bit from and the dolts. Exactly. Interacting with adults that are not family members or teachers, and they have to actually talk back. They're not just sitting in a classroom with twenty to twenty five of their kids, and they can not raise their hand if they want to. Right. I'm asking them questions. They have to be engaged. And then we also do a lot of communication prep work with them for like. I do mock interviews and meetings with kids, we do workshops out them prepare for how to interact with these professionals when they are going on college, visits and talking to admissions counselors or people in their department that they might want to go into and stuff like that. So those are really, really important soft skills to just research and general and Nate Lynn our process. That's the core backbone of our process, and that's a skill. If you don't hold that, or have it by the time you get to college I, I don't know what you're gonna do, because, like if you don't know how to do your own basic level of research, in order, because you're so independent college from an educational standpoint that if you don't have that, then you're in a bad position to be honest with you. And that's eight in our processes that we have to do research, because that's how we actively research and look through degrees in and actually study different schools into program so that game that has a skill. Those are all things that they have to have they have to be able to create a resume. They have to shake hand. They have to know how to look up information and. Actively decipher between it and the truth is, they've gotta learn how to write. It doesn't matter what field you really go into joking about myself any great writer. But I still can't if I have to graduate from college. It's a minings at least some degree. But this is this is a part that honestly we, we just kind of throw out there and don't put any credence to it. I mean, we'll talk about ACT and SAT and parents will be terrified of that for years, and who mentioned like oh, yeah. I guess essay and I can't express to you enough like how these things are on the same level. Like, if because of one is off. It doesn't matter. It's it really doesn't matter. So let's talk a bit about, like how we kind of protest this, and what are essay process is gonna look like now. Going forward with the people that were working with. So one of the things that when we sit down with our juniors and we have our SA workshop, and we talk about this, how we're gonna get started, and we're going to expect that you complete your, your main common app essay prior to office, I because then it's just out of the way you can caught concentrate on your supplements. Owes you can concentrate on your scholarship essays, and you can concentrate on the work of being a senior. We're not competing against all those other things actually, we'll just get this done, but one of the things when we sit down in this essay workshop and ask the students, how often do you south added and write a rough draft? And they all just kinda like sheepishly look down at their laps. So because they are not rough drafting which is hideous. I think a lot of kids just feel pressed for time, you know, they're, they're like, I got it done. It's enough. So, but it's not enough. It is not enough. This time like you cannot rush this thing you can. And then you probably won't go where you would like to go, you know, this is going to. At you apart. You're, you're competing with a sea of students who all have great grades and I'll have greed test scores and all have great resumes full of academic and athletic pursuits. And this is the way to distinguish yourself and make yourself look really strong or really weak your choice. And so if you can do if you can learn the steps of rough drafting doing the brainstorming of creating an outline before you do any piece of writing and not only will you write a great essay for your college application. But you're just gonna do better writing in general. And that's really that is my whole goal. That is why we're we have created writing center because we don't want you to do, rush jobs and, and run it through spellcheck and be like. Yep. I checked it. I did it. So I want you to take the time to really think about your writing. Does it say what you want it to say? And to end we're using an essay. Rubric. Never heard that word before. It's so funny that you say that. That's by the way. All the time. But if you, if you like Alex or. With the rubric, it's just sort of your, your guidemap for what it is that you need to achieve with your piece of writing. And so it's enough. It's great that I can sit down and look at a piece of writing that you give to me and run it through a set of leg. How is the grammar did you use great verbs? But it's even better if I can ask you to do those things I because overall will make you a stronger writer. And so the essay rubric that we have our students is long. It's comprehensive it will take them, very long to do, but it's the kind of the kind of self editing, you should just be doing, you know, it's, it's good writing. It's what good writing looks like. And it's what all writers do to make sure that they're delivering good writing on, you know on the regular. And so the nice thing about this rubric is that it's not a rubric for your essay writing for your college essays. It's a, it's a rubric that will help you with all of your raining. You can take this rubric into your senior classes, and he right. That you're doing there any of the writing that you're going to college. I am very comfortable, handing this to my graduate students who are now my, my seniors in college right now applying to graduate school. So this is just going to help you make better writing happen. Excellent will and. Forever's person again kind of approaching this. It's just kind of like, well, how do I even approach this? How do I even really started this? So how, how are we how are we going to be able to set families up to do this a little bit, or no? We're doing this with our clients, too. But it sounds like we're going to be doing this even bigger than that to going forward. We've got lots of this process. What are some, some top level, things, some top level tips that we could least go with the with right now, things, when we sit down with our college students is just to be clear about white, you're do have chosen, a prompt that really speaks to me, can I answer, the prompt with the writing that I developed it's really funny? Like one of the very first things that we ask the essay rubric is have I followed the requirements? And is there one prompt that my essay, clearly answers the follow up question is, is there another prompt essay could potentially answer? Because if that's the case what we feel is that maybe your argument needs to be a little stronger, or you're supporting statements need to be stronger because when. Viewer outta college. Read your essay, they should know without having it written at the top, which prompted you're, you're covering. So, and I my last piece of advice for anybody who is not currently working with us is look over the prompts for the common essay, there's one, I think, is prompt seven, yes, yes, it's prompt seven. And it's like if none of these six proms fit you in any way, if you can't find anything to talk about any six prompts that we wrote to be as general as possible to appeal to everybody in the audience right about your own thing. And we're encouraging you not to do that. Never do it does the best job of explaining why it's important, not to choose the open ended. Seventh prompt. Yeah. It's well, it's really tough. I think for one, I feel like kids have a tendency to think, oh, I wrote this essay for my English class, I'm just gonna plug in chug it and, and it's like that. And that's why would you want something that is showing portent that you're going to be showing these? Admissions officers that hangs your future in the balance just copy and paste and recycle something over that doesn't really actually show in the best possible way who you are in as a candidate. Right. And I think it's really hard in general for you to just go off of nothing and pick topic number seven because it's hard for those missions officers to, like grade you, right? They can't hold you to answer XYZ part of this prompt that I follow directions adequately because there's no directions for you to follow. It's just a catch, also unless you are like these strongest writer in the world, and you genuinely have a story that has in no way can answer these six pumps, that they wrote to be as general as possible, like don't, don't even. I'm gonna say something that's gonna be super Papa. But I'm gonna say it anyway tread real lightly in that if you think you're that because if you think you're that good. Odds are you need to take a big step back to be honest with you, because we've met a few kids, that think that their stuff doesn't stink at all and that they are God's gift to writing since Shakespeare and take back, you know, and has some real self evaluation. Because if you are strong Varinder, you'll be able to write within the first six months without blink of an eye. Absolutely. You know, and that should make that a lot easier for you. But you still have to fall a same journal roles and steps that go along with that, you can't skip that stuff. If you think you're prodigy that doesn't mean you get the skip all the things that make up that particular subject or title. He then just to be Bill Gates of writing like it doesn't work that way, so flip side of that, though, is that your experience like we constantly remind our students. You do not have to cure cancer. Do not have to write the best. Whatever you don't have to. You don't have to be tough tippety top person in your essay. Again, we're trying to show change over time. So I don't want you to say, like I was already Nobel prize winner at fourteen. What does that leave you to do? Seriously? I just need you to, to explain how this particular incident moment in time thing that you did affected you and what you gain from it. So I had this great student who was like, I'm supposed to talk about an adversity and one of her supplemental essays and she's like, I am a middle class kid from the middle of Ohio. She like I have never lived in a refugee camp. I've never like nobody's turning off our power, like everything in my life is fine. And, and I had to really help her. I mean, and that's one of the nice things about, again, working with and adviser or writing center staff member to help her figure out agreer have these adversities popped up in your life inch. She's a. Dancer who broke her foot. So I was like, that's a pretty big deal that seems like it might have affected your, your life, and she wrote a terrific essays about it. But, you know, I think I mean I think I know where she was going, I know where her head space was. But I also knew that she had something really valuable to share. And that's I think it's so important. I remember we don't expect you to have gotten your Nobel prize at sixteen or seventeen but we do expect you to be reflective about the life, you've led and be able to think about where you've you've grown and, and what you've learned from it, really because it is like you said, it's a time for that reflections at time to show who you are as a person, and not just brag about the things that you've accomplished, it's not a rehashing of your resume. They can see that on your kitchen. Have a list of all the things that you've done. So like you pick one thing to talk about one moment to burst open and explore some something that's going to put them right there next to you, and feel like I'm at that lacrosse game or I'm breaking. My foot right next to you. Right. I'm not just reading of the things that make you so great one of things you as a student and apparent you have to remember when you're sending your stuff into a school. They don't know your kid from Adam, you know, they're looking at the things that you've sent to them as the complete identity for who this person is, and what your next steps are going to be. So if your resume does it make sense, then as gonna make sense to them if it's if your grades are up and down, if you're a C T scores are up and down? If you're writing isn't clear, they don't know who you are again. They can't go back and if you're writing essay like they'll figure this out, they'll melt, no what I'm trying to say. No, they won't because they don't know who you are. And you're one of probably literally a thousand of those essays that this essay reviewer has read, always say, like sit down and picture. The admissions person who is reading this essay, going through the dredges of all these essays one after another after another you wanna be the that they pick up. And they're like, wow. This is differentiating you. This is cool. The succeeding, this is different from the thousands of other terrible essays that I've read before this go shoot for that, right? Make make them rights jumps off the page. I mean you're competing against OSHA at fifty five thousand last year. Everyone in the smitten essay, plus supplementals, if you again, they don't know who you are in that mixture of fifty five thousand you've got to be able to jump off the page more than everything else. And again to your point page, it doesn't matter if you're surprised winning writer, or if that's your strength in high school or it's not. We can work with you to get to that point, and be able to craft the right thing that you need to really express in that essay. And making sure that you're saying the right things in the right voice. And that's the point of having for us for having the writing center and having devoted people to work with you, because it takes that and not to put it through shopping through five different personalities and all this stuff. No. One person is they're going to be able to guide you through this rubric is set. So that what you have the guidelines and understand what's going on. And that's what we're doing. So how are we? How are we doing this? How are we actually getting people in front of us? And how are we actually doing this work? So if you're currently a college liftoff student, you, you are encouraged name commanded. Complete your common app essay prior to August, first because we know that you have supplementals, and that's I think, for people who are unfamiliar with this college process. If you have not applied to college anytime in the last ten to fifteen years, you might I realize how much writing there is to do during the college application season. And so let's just let's just knock out that really big essay early one of the ways that we can do that is. I mean we have some students we can say to them right now. We need you to get that done by August. I you're going to be happier human. If you get that completed by August person, they'll come back to us, and the next meeting, or so, and they'll come in with a rough draft or, you know, a set of ideas. That's great. If you are not that person during the summer of twenty nineteen, we are offering a set of writer's block essay workshops where you will sit down over a five day period, and come in with a blank page or, you know a blank computer screen because rates on paper these days. But and at the end of your five day period, you will have completed common app essay, I can't think of a better way to spend like seriously week during the summer just to knock such a big piece of my application out. You know, you will have that done, and then we'll do some will lay some groundwork for some of the supplementals you're going to do, but really, what we're going to work on is making your good writing better. So this is a program, we're going to be doing the summer. Yeah. Summer nineteen our first rollout, if you are already a college liftoff student will let you know, when you can spend a week with us and our new writing center staff. But if you aren't currently a college liftoff client, and you're interested. There will be some opportunities as well. So you this isn't something where you have to be a causal client. Although it comes straight in the program for our kids. Exactly. Okay. And we'll be able to offer something for the general public, and it's called just, it's the writer's block. Essay writing summer camps, so, okay. An imagine. We'll put dates for those pretty soon and put in some information about that. Probably launch it on Facebook imagine. And on a website. Okay. Good. So we'll make sure that all information is out problem the next week or two for the dates that we have that works going on. And how many are we thinking we're going to be doing five or six five six different weeks over the summer? Yeah. Okay. Gotcha. You have a few different opportunities to teach us your times. So we may we haven't quite decided, but we may offer one like a couple of nights a week, just to hit those kids who either have a really heavy like let it load over the summer because some kids, do started earlier or who need. So if we were to do a summer like an evening workshop series we'd probably do it over two weeks. So going to mislead you. So you would come in over two weeks and have completed essay but that we still get things done. You'll have plenty of time to work on it and again, you can just you can. Start your senior year and say, Yep. It's finished, you know, I, I now I can turn my attention to the jillions of supplementals that will need to be done. I mean not to frighten anyone. But one of my students had well, I know when we played to Syracuse there were about five or six up laments and I know that we had seven at American for the student as well as the other schools that had two or three. I mean there is such a long list. And so it was really it was a huge relief for this. You just have her common FA done so that we could turn our attention to all these other pieces. So let us help you do the same thing. And so no program writing centers with for good. So the supplementals aren't just kind of left out there in the open. So if your college kid if your client sleet, the all these pieces are available to you, and you'll have it. So again, like, even when we're doing scholarship of USA's going into March, and April than within the next year you'll have somebody reviewing all of them with you throughout the entire process of this. Yep. I have read. I've read a lot of this year. But I mean some of our students. Turned in now more than thirty essays though, and it's a real pleasure to, to watch their writing grow over time, too. I, I know that we are sending out stronger writers after working with callers liftoff. So and it shows in the in the acceptances that we've gotten in the scholarship money that we receive for our kids, it makes a difference. It really does so call. So we'll make sure to get that stuff out onto our website about the writer's block. Essay writing workshops for the summer anybody that's interested, obviously, please go to our website or go to Facebook, and like some Facebook, and you'll see those, those mentioned right there. Any parting words wisdom, I, there's actually, another thing that I did think about during this. Is that some schools, it might not be quote unquote required. Right, the essay. Right. And I have some kids who are like, well, if none of the schools on my list require the sl, then why do I have to go out of my way to write it? And our answer is always always do that. Because like we've talked about earlier on this podcast. This. Is it? It's a time and an opportunity for you to talk about who you are, and show them that you're more than just your test scores and your GPA in the your resume. Right. I'm sure you're super proud of those things, or maybe even if you're, you're not as proud of where you're a c t score SAT score. Whatever it is might be where that's at this is your chance to show them who you are. And really create something that's going to set you apart from those fifty five thousand applicants at Ohio State pick something that's going to differentiate, you and us opportunity school Everest. It's optional to do an essay or anything and your answers. We'll do it. That's my answer to that. Honestly, like if the school says optional do it period without question. That's an out for them to see if you're committed to doing the process, that's really a trap. I mean I know we'll talk about dedicated interest in other podcasts. But, you know, one of the one of the ways that you show a dedicated interest to the school, you're applying to is a open your emails from them so that, you know, if they're asking you to do something, but to if they ask you to do something, and it's, it's optional do it do it. It's a great way to show the school, I am super committee. Of course, I'm gonna write this essay. Because of course I really wanna be at this particular university next year. If you don't do those extra pieces, don't expect anything from them. Honestly, like if you need an once scholarship money, if you need an one admissions or direct initiative program. Don't expect it because you haven't put forth your best effort and they're gonna notice it, so therefore, you're not gonna get back ever. I mean it's already hard enough to do all these pieces and make sure that the right and making sure that we're getting into place in the right schools. Don't push up on April, if you if there's an option that you do it. Well now that segues into something else thought about, but honestly, if you are if you've written strong. Application essays than when you write your scholarship, essays, those are strong to you. And I think about that, for a lot of my students now are walking into their universities next year with a full ride, and it's because they had done the hard work of writing great essays early on. So they knew what was expected of them, and they treated their scholarship essays, and their supplemental essays with as much rigger, and, and as seriously as they treated that initial comments essay, they really put the same amount of time in tension into these scholarship essays and into the supplementals, and I think that I honestly think that's what made a huge difference for a lot of our students will the supplementals in the scholarship even more. So explain who you are. Because at that point, if you're being considered for particular scholarship at a particular school, and then the they've already gone through the role of they know which grades look like the Notre GPA looks like the of all the prequalification for you. Otherwise, you wouldn't be at that point if they're asking. For more information I an interview or through an essay. Or personal personal statement. If you don't nail that. That's it like that's the whole kit and caboodle right there at that point. Again, they've already got all the other stuff. They don't need that to judge off of whatever you present in front of them. At that point is the thing that's going to do it. So even more reason why you've got to do this. Right. You've got to do that writing part. Right. And you can't ignore it. It's not in any way, a small component of this. It's actually pretty mild mental, it's the forward facing piece. It's who you are. Agreed. I'd never really thought about it as your cover letter. But that's just the best analogy, right? You can write a very boring. Thank you for thank you for considering me up. I'm super interested in your job. Or you can write a letter that really speaks your passion and what you're interested in and who you are. And you can let people know who you are with a cover letter, and then they're eager to check out your resume. It's the same thing with writing for college. Your your, your resume is nothing. More your qualifications. Your cover letter. The thing you write tells them, why in where you want to be. And if you can't express it, nobody else is gonna express for you.

College Liftoff Plus

"Welcome to affording college with Aaron green founder and president of college liftoff. Thirty. Affording college. I'm Erin greenhouse of affording college and found of college left off college, DAV college planning firm. I started to provide solutions for anybody in everybody that's going through college planning, our has college planning needs. Our mission is to secure teens brightest future and save them and their families thousands of dollars in the process we work with teens throughout the entire college planning process starting with personalized one on one critic element work from there. We find the best schools to match our students chosen career paths and interest then offer support throughout the entire mentions process next, we work with families budgets to find the price that makes the most sense for their kids education all while insuring. It's the right fit today. We are hios premier college planning firm. I'm happy to say that where shooting for the world, by the way, and we strive to save time stress and money when it comes to your child's higher education. So that's a little background on myself and college liftoff, I do this podcast. I really want to offer families from solid vice when it comes to planning for college and higher education because there's. So much misinformation out there. The purpose of this podcast is to dispel the Mets and misinformation and really help families. So one of the most important, and yet overlooked aspects of how to do proper effective and successful college planning is really through creative element work. We talk about it all the time in this podcast. And no one knows that better than my coast today. Sarah. Hey, how's it going? Good. Good. Good and page. What's going on? How you guys doing today? So starting with Sarah your rockstar here. College liftoff you've been in visor here with us for about six months. You really are working with families and every step in this process, but you really have a heart for early teens and actually have a background in teaching. She's been working really closely with page college liftoffs manager client planning page has an undergraduate degree in psychology and a graduate degree in education teaching night. Page. You want said in terms of critic element, you're passionate about helping students recognize trained some passions. They didn't recognize fully in themselves leading to careers that they never mentioned or didn't really understand or know about at the time. That is that. Right. Absolutely smart. You should give me a raise. No. It's totally true. It's just amazing when we have students come in even the students who have kind of an idea what they think they want to do so often at something that somebody else's told them, or maybe it's a Crear that someone, you know, has like, I know for instance, I was going to get a degree psychology. I thought that with the guidance counselor did at my element school was really interesting, and it wasn't like from a deeper need to help people or anything. I just thought her job was cool. And that sadly, like no one really talked to me about what I could do with the degree with interested in in some of their area. Like, I just went to school thinking that is what I'll do. I mean hearing today in college planning. So yes, I'm helping people. Yes. I'm guiding them and my counselor in elementary school. I am not. So I think about how if somebody had sat down with me talk to me a little bit about what about psychology. What about guidance counselor work was interesting? I might have moved into a dip. Direction. I'm super super passionate about public health. And since this is the me show will just keep talking about my stuff. We see the same thing in our students. They come in. They might have an inkling or they've been told. Hey, you're really good at this. And so that's sort of informs their idea of potential careers, or at least a potential major and they come in. They sit down with us. And we do this great board exercise with them where we help them identify strings, help them identify even more importantly things they know they don't want to do. And then we look at their strengths and we look at their interests. And then we sort of paired together in Aaron what I like to think of his Aaron's magical formula and health that come up with this enormous list of careers that are potentially viable option for them. And then as we do the work that we do we sit down, and we we continue to research, and as time goes on we get rid of a lot of those careers because they aren't the best fit. But when it clicks with a kid is just so awesome. When they come in to the office. They're like, I love this thing. This is what I wanna do. This is what I love this. This is where I wanna go. What I wanna do? I'm. So happy, and we see it over and over again. I think if at once I'd be like, let's do it again, but pretty much with every student we work with they come in. And they're like, yes, this is that thing that I am born to do if there's a magic pill that we have. And it's not a magic pill per se it, it's it's just a good understanding of the fact that jobs aren't one thing. And I think we hunt suddenly try to put jobs and people and interest in a box and say, here's your one thing. You do this one thing you like psychology, go work and the school, but like you have to put in public health like these other aspects, and when we dissect not just programs at schools, but when we start talking about I setting jobs, and if you ask anybody shoot audience member ask yourself, what does your job really pertain? What are you really doing? And you're gonna come up with a list of probably ten twenty thirty things not two or three. And I think that's where the. Translation is really wrong in this is that at a earlier age. We think off we boil it down to these very boilerplate things that that's the best method in order to get them into. No, it's not it's about talking to students as an adult and having them expand the concept of who they are. And what the jobs are look that look like them and the magic pill to this isn't continuously adding more things to the list. It's about vetting through those things and taking the time to really see what it is. And that's where we get to those points where the kid can walk in and say, you know, what I've sift through all these things we started with it wasn't two hundred at four thousand five hundred universities worth of things. It was about ten to twelve and these are my interest in how they correlate to those. And you know, what this one's for me because I've researched have seen it. I've studied it. I've gotten job exposure to it. Now, I know that this is from me. And that's exactly right. And we have so many students come in and express that oh, they wanna go be an elementary school counselor like you said page, but the. Reality is they only see it from an external position as a student. They don't see the background that goes in and -cation that teacher counselor. How to do and the things that you normally don't think about that accounts are house to do. Right. And so those might be dealbreakers for a student if they actually understood those things so figuring that stuff out now before they even go into it. That's what we're all about idealism. His ideal perspectives of jobs, especially that's what we kinda give our students when their kids when they think about jobs, I say this to every kid walks to the door and every family because it's true most kids know, Dr teacher nurse. My parents who ex that's the extent of the world and truth be told they probably have one or two word terms for each one of those jobs, and they're so vitally in vastly different. But this is how and why we've developed L plus over the past year and trooper toll it takes time to do the stuff, and we've really seen that we really need to start at at at at an early age earlier age early high school, ninth and tenth grade is an fit for one student should be thinking about this on when our students are coming in asking these types of questions and are willing to spend time to do that career development at an earlier age so often I think what we talked to parents. But they're still young. They don't really they have no idea. What they wanna do. We say. Yes, that's. Exactly what you should. I don't want her to come in. And be like. Yep. On fourteen. I'm going to be a lawyer. Yeah. I get it that they're probably some kids out there who already have that in mind. But in general we wanted to help explore and really help just pare down a list. That's it's infinitesimal really tiny include it. So it's infinite. But the list is truly ballistics infinite there, so many choices, and we need to helps us again like Sarah said look at the the less pleasant side of job, and what's less pleasant to you. It's such a subjective list. Yeah. But what's not interesting to you about a job could be totally fascinating to me and vice versa. Need to help them. See this is what this is what a career looks like you're going to do are you content to do all of those things for big part of your life. I mean, I'm amazed at the kids that wanted to actual science because I never. That could ever picks myself. It's that's the if there is a miracle to people in general that somehow I've said down done this board exercise with kids about eight hundred times it's been a little over eight hundred times at this point. But the interesting thing is not a single one of those situations that come out the same. When you take the major specialization minor, you combine them together to see what's the real look of what this kid's going to look like in the end. The combinations are always different. So the world the world is vital in vastly different, thankfully, and and the thing is too and mitt page. You mentioned this like, we'll we'll have kids say, you know, really want to be a lawyer. And then the parents say, well, they've said they wanted to be a lawyer since they were three he's been bring a briefcase arguing over vegetables as but in that same vein that you still want to do the vetting work to make sure that you know, fully what that may. Means I use this scenario a lot of all all the time. Actually, we'll have two cases that walk in the door. When I meet I meet with the kid before they go and work with you guys more on a day to day fashion. I'll have a valedictorian that a walk in and say, I really want to be a neurosurgeon, and then I'll have a three point four kit or whatever the case may be that walks in and says, I have no idea what I wanna do. And you know, the truth the exact same point. Yep. Point the valid torn say neurosurgeon because it sounds smart. They have no real concept of job actually seen in action. They may have an interest in the brain bio, that's kind of extent of it. At least three point four kid is being honest about it. I think the thing that we're we're we're trying to put his that the smarter. You are the more confident, you know, about what the job is that you're gonna wanna do when the truth is that's never been taught to you in the first place. So how would you know, and all the the the key is getting exposure to the work road and saying that that's something -pletely different than negative study. And we've got a separate those two points and making sure that our kids see that at an earlier age. I e doing a lot more job shadowing. That's what the plus is really kind of build around is really just being able to give them exposure to the world that much younger age. So they way we do start studying programs from schools and things like that. They have tangible field for you know, what I know what industrial systems engineer does for a shoe company. I know what a biomedical engineering person does at a prosthetic limb development company. I know what's a physical therapists may do and Neth let training center all these things that are not just static topics be a PT 'cause I like working with athletes they're much more than conversations. And I get it's scary. It's a scary place for an adult and a kid debate. Because droopy told how many people have the time to really investigate that thoroughly. Well, we do we do. Can you hear that? The other part of this equation that I find really fascinating is. I think a lot of times kids come in with sort of a dream career. Maybe it's for whatever reason it somewhat limiting or maybe their parents school where maybe their parents are just super worried that it won't yield any real reading ration-. So their kids are not going to get paid at the end of the day. And so I think one of the great things that we can do is pair a whole complement of careers with someone's interests. So that you don't you don't have to be the kid who winds up playing your violin on the subway platform. Right. We instead can find you a great career in use and the music industry where you can continue to play aiding continue to enjoy music and love things that you do in the world of music, but also find a job that that pays us Alary that gives you life insurance that gives you be health insurance, but health insurance. It gives you all of the things that you need to actually say move on and be an independent adult. And I think so often parents come in and they're just really anxious like she is going to have to live at home forever. Because she wants to be a poet when we can help you with that can help you find a career where poetry is part of it. But you can also bring into paycheck poetry may mean, you have strengthened writing writing from creative standpoint. Which means you may have other pieces that go along with that. Which may means you may have a real strength in the communication wing. Not just communication in general, but maybe more strategic organizational type focus in that. Now, you have new media. And now, you have somebody that's actively designing the interface between people and technology and the heavy program is that actually write the stuff and those people gigantically vital today. And so that's where you can take these skills that we just again think of a static things, and they really become born dynamic as you start inputting into the inputting of pieces of their interests into this and setting career fields. Actively pertain to that. And then not sticking to a love the example music because we think of that as a one shot thing within that industry know, the truth is that's a full industry just like any other where you have yet musicians which are like shooting for the pros. No question there. But then you also have technological side of that which is audio and to some degree video production, which incorporates and hires a lot of different people. And then you have a whole business aspect of music. Whether it be working at the local orchestra within your city or working for record label and all the business aspect pieces that go along with that it's about getting into industry and still taking that along with it. And making those things connect like I have been saying this a lot recently international businesses, a terrible major. It's terrible. Because it doesn't really say anything. It's just saying you wanna work in a nationally. A major IAS skillset is like finance marketing, it's counting its opperations management things. Like that. That's a skill set. International businesses and industry connector saying you wanna take finance and work at internationally. So you do a major in finance, minor international business. Same thing goes here. You can swap international business out with music management. Sports management. Doesn't matter. You wanna find the skill set and take it to that industry? And then got an end. And just like, you know, you said that not every boy that or not boy that you've created is the same as the next one. Similarly, like the job hats that our students go down in their majors lead to different results. Right. And every lawyer that is going to school to be a lawyer doesn't come out with the same result. They can specialize in different things. And it's really. Partnering up those interest in. What makes you you? And figuring out how you can change the world around you after you get out of college that you can partner those things together with patent attorneys. Yeah. Are engineers. That's a very different thing than a civil Arnie. Let me note works for the state in works on criminal cases was very different than pharmaceutical. Like, you can get any type of version of that as you really want depending on the area. Computer, science built the same way. There's a version of computer science in every single field. Now, it's not just the technical field. I mean, you have everything from computational biology and the in the health related fields to the even the more tech versions of library information science, you can get into more liberal arts categories, like it's spans of and again it boils down to their multiple things that make up degree sets and jobs and people, and that's what you have to do is look at it from more than namic perspective, not static. It's not a time line or like linear trajectory, it's like a choose your own adventure type thing. Yeah. It really is. That's a great perspective. All this as you gotta start early. That's one of the great things about coming in and doing work with college liftoff because we want to give you access exposure to what what your career looks like, and we like to bring in real world examples of people who are working in their industries. We talked about how they got there. What they did in the work leading up to what they're doing now. And we talk about what that looks like going forward for them, you know, and what they're hoping for because what we know is that very few of us. Now, we don't work like we did like sixty years ago where you know, you start a job at twenty two and you finish when you're sixty sixty five and you do the same thing all the way through our jobs, change and warp all the time and even within an industry or within a company the work that you do often shifts pretty dramatically, and so it's really terrific to bring in like a group just in the month of February. Yeah, we brought in a group of counselors and social workers to talk about what it looks like to work in that profession. And people talked about, you know, that both the high points and the difficulties in working in these careers, and it was it was fascinating. I think our students gained a lot of information. I think that we probably inspired if you people to to move forward. And I think we probably similarly inspired a few people to look elsewhere. It just you know, after hearing from other people about what this really looks like maybe they decided it's not for them. And then the nice thing is we can take that same interest area and just shifted a little bit and talk about well, you know, maybe you don't wanna do say social working hospital setting, but what about child life or one about? Let's look here. Let's look at public out there. So many different ways that we can spend the same set of interests, and strengths and just turned it into the perfect fit for you. With a panel. They were three different perspectives on what social work really was. I mean, it was everything from working at children's hospital to work in clinically. And then also working for a new American based group and seeing how that was done in the giving the real of what their day to day, I've looks like within those areas again that way this student whoever that student may be that sitting in that audience can now see and understand that and really gave to grasp. Now, this is social work. You know, granted it's still from three perspectives. But it's three times more than they've had before versus just an ideal perspective of what they may have thought of it before one hundred percent and those three perspectives. They all majored in has they have different backgrounds. One of them was photography, right. And they just landed into social work through experience through different past experiences in jobs. Real quick quick anecdotal pieces. Like, what's it like working with younger students? This is something that we're this is new to college left off. We we've traditionally worked with really student starting in their junior year. This is an additional add on service because our clients have come to us, and and really have asked us about this. What can we do at a younger age in order to to to help our help their kids foster better understandings of jobs in PISA? So CO blesses was basically created by Clinton in order to to help them. Do this a lot better, but bent some fun experiences? Our first time of my students. They're just Sinoe ready to jump into the research and look at colleges and look at careers, while others will admit they know nothing about the world of work or the world of college. But they're open to starting with workshops that we have monthly and going to job shadowing events. Even if they weren't necessarily job shadowing opportunities that aligned with majors that you had pointed out. In their board. They're open to those opportunities and experiences. I think having that time, you know, if they are starting in ninth grade, we've got four years to develop what it is like and dislike and having the opportunity with time on our side gives us that benefit to do both for students. Absolutely. I think too. We really can help the parents because I think so much of this. The earlier program is very parent driven. The parents the parents are very interested. They're already really thinking ahead about the the Bill that they're going to pay for college. And they wanna make sure I mean, they wanna maximize the opportunity right? They've heard the rumors that college now take six point two years, and they they wanna make sure that doesn't happen until they don't really know how to to make it. So that their kids go through them for years, but they've heard that we can help. And so when when our college looked plus families come in. They the parents typically said to us, I don't know what he wants to do is that. Okay. Yeah. That that's why we sit down, and we do a lot. I I would say that we break down the pieces of career planning to very basic level. Because again, we have that kind of time we down we can talk a lot about like fit factors in work and in your college. We can talk about the intersection of purpose passion, you know. And we, and it's so great when we talk about it because we illustrate the point the points beautifully like everybody stomach job where it pays the bills. But they're not passionate about the work that they do. Right. Like their pizza delivery drivers, you know. And then we talk about areas where people are like find somebody that they're really really passionate about like, I would just go readykids every day. But nobody's offered to pay me any money. So much fun. But no-one said here's a million dollars. Go go read some children. Right. And so then we talk about jobs where you alternately are quite good at what you do. But again, you just you don't enjoy the work that you're doing. And ultimately, we wanna find an area where we combine the things that you really love to do with things you're really good at and then at the end of the day a paycheck that you can be happy with because you said, I really like what I do like, I feel I'm very filled in the work that I do. And so that's the kind of experience that we can have with our younger students because we can really sit down and talk about all of those pieces and make sure that we're not identifying just one area, but rather hitting all of them and bringing them together. So that they can eat really fulfilled in the work that they do for the next. Let's say five years because again their job will change over time. But in that work that they deal moving forward. Honestly, that's pretty plainly with students when they walk in the door. You really don't want to chase money. Do something. You know, you're gonna love but insane vein always always understand the financial realities of which walking into. So that way you can plan for it better. And if we know all that stuff up front three four five six seven eight years before you even start in the field. I mean, we've got a tunnel landing ground that we can really prepare these kids. And yeah, if you're going to make a smaller salad for a particular field, we can control the college costs and make sure that that worked for you. And same thing goes for anything in between if you're making something with a higher salary, but you don't have to sacrifice what you're doing. Or what you wanna do? Because of that. The problem is when students go off and just do this and say, I'm going to be a social worker or somebody that's an early education where they do traditional have lower starting salaries, and they take one hundred grand in debt. Exactly probably to blunt about it. But you're done like you're not going to do that job because you can't afford to do it. I mean, you're you're you sacrifice your entire financial future. And the truth be told you can't afford to do that thing. Now. That's the difference. Here is that we want and we need good teachers. We need consults workers. We have to be able to plan for this stuff better with them. So that way they can afford to be that in the career paths period. We've got to do that. So this kind of get says to one of the questions we've actually gotten for this week. It actually came from parents that were received and I'll just read the read the Email letter says hi college left off. We have a daughter who will be entering high school in the fall. She's fourteen years old is an excellent student wind. Should we be thinking about preparing for college? Now. Down to one now. That's that's pretty much. The crux of talked about debate. Any final thoughts that you guys would add to convert another piece that we do with a lot of ours. GOP students curriculum planning even making sure that their high school curriculum aligns with preparation for college and beyond making sure that they're taking the right classes and performing well in those classes as well. Still the kind of quiet secret today about high school college planning special curriculum side is that it's no longer a be doing all these three buckets of things and make sure you have a mole filled. It's kind of now be directed. So making sure that you are taking the right science courses, if your medical bound engineering bound or just general science bound or if you're more down the teaching variety, or if you're more down the like business communication route. You've kind of have to focus in your disarm degree, focus, your, Hercules, really, try to focus your curriculum into that particular perspective. You wanna pay the narrative? But four years the plan instead of one or two we can really we can help kind of drive things in the right direction for your entire resume. Whether it's your activities, or your volunteer work. We have an awful lot of kids who come in early in their senior year to work with us, and they have three volunteer hours. Right. Just want more colleges. Expect more right? It's a lot harder for us to to backfill. Right. If you come in and your senior year, it it doesn't give us much time to to help you get those tier hours to get those experiences that are so vital before you go off to college. If you come in and work with us as a freshman or sophomore, we can say, you know, this summer would be a terrific time for you to maybe go volunteer Cosi where you are interested in doing some stem related work that will then inform. The the major that you choose in college or to take on a job that again gives you some real world experience in an area that you're interested in those are all great things that we get to do and we can talk. About I think kids a lot of times have this. Pretty outdated notion of of just the number of activities, they need to have on their schedule and get on the resume to say, I was really great at everything that I did all the time. And I did a lot of different things. We can help them. Make more informed decisions moving on. And again, it just it's the benefit of time. Until you don't want one three. Honestly, you went three and you phoned in on and you've taken leadership roles you've really showing some peak interest in those and especially now talking about certain fields. I mean, we're seeing undergraduate degrees like even the two year level like the PTA's, we're at trooper told they're requiring you have certain amount of volunteer hours at forty two twenty forty or sixty and different settings even not just at some random place that you saw would be willing to house you for a couple of hours. But now they are serious about that. If you just finding that out when you start application season if you're doing this on your own and you find that out in September. You're not going to be not going to say, it's not gonna happen. So you've got to do the stuff earlier we've got to be able to blame for an earlier. That's again, that's the whole premise of cultural stuff. Plus, and why we've created this model it's expansion for service into the ninth and tenth grade model for that reason for that exact reason makes your parents and students are more prepared. Well, I'm glad you mentioned that parents because in addition to you a lot of the workshops that we offer per students. We offer separate workshops just for the parents because I think parents especially younger students are really hungry. For more information and good quality information about how to help their students adequately prepare, and they know they know that the influence that they have it fourteen is really different than the influence that they'll be able to exert it seventeen. And so they wanna get in early and be able to help their students make good choices. And if we can help them identify, the soft skills that students need to be successful or great, you know, financial planning vehicles to make sure that they have enough money to support their students through school. Those are great conversations that we love to have their family. I was gonna say this isn't even talking about the money and what we need to do to prepare for an alert. That's a whole other broadcast because it's all those pieces that we talked about just today just on the side of figuring which one do with younger age whole different story. You have to prepare those things earlier period. So what are some of the? Workshops that we're doing with some of our parents just again to kind of give them that earlier pieces. Well, well, right now in April, we've got one set up for what your student needs to know, some of those soft skills patriots talking about and how you can start developing that with your student now before they had off to college. In addition. We talk about or we have a workshop for which test. And when when you should be preparing for the SAT's all of that stuff. Yeah. And that's something that our parents are always asking about. Yeah. More about the application process. College visits if you're a student, Scott, an IEP or five or four or please sport.

ESPNLA Mornings with Keyshawn, LZ and Travis HR 2

"Let's give away music, isn't it? Yeah. We give me right behind her. No. You know what I decided guys? I'm going to swing by the nice and only store picking we'll pick up some Christmas decorations. I'm gonna jazz up this. Let us add Charlie Brown Christmas. She sent behind us kisha wants more girth. So you gotta think of that. I can't get that at nine hundred store. Okay. That's regard. But there's parts of it. You can't we are not playing this to give away something we're playing this. Because it is Bruce Lee's birthday today. And he was originally cast it to play the lead role in this great show on food. He was yes. And he said, Dr he's an encore. I'm good. I don't want to walk into desert. Seventy eight Bruce Lee would've been policy is better. It is. Something like we just had his birthday Bruce Lee's. Yeah. Back. That was that was Tommy's Bertha just him. In his movie, still hold up. Oh, don't they? Insistent that we. Moi off. So right up at the cliff. Right. The small Ryan just like you look remember they used to use. Peddling comb food members can snatch peddling from my hand. Travis. Hey, look, you're right on the edge. We're having a Roger Chris doggone right now. Dave fell anymore Wiley Coyote lip. Pufus smoke at the bottom of the canyon. Rockets lose again last night. They got fifty four points from James harden. They got ninety points from their backward air had thirty six as well. Chris Paul didn't play last night because brace yourselves. He's hurt. Yeah. He's he's injured who would have seen that coming Utah is in thirteenth place in the Western Conference. Now, they're a grand total of a half game out of eighth and the whole the whole conference even at the top the clippers are top thirteen and six the top from one to what would that be fourteenth is five games? One through fourteen is five, but the rockets seemed to be in that weird spot where if they're going to start to get it it feels like the would've started to get it right about now. And I said it at the time that when they had their shot at the at the warriors last year, and it was good shot. And they didn't happen you rarely get that got to come back and get a second really good shot at it. And they made some moves or reasons gone by Mugabe has gone they signed Chris Paul to a long term deal. They are mellow thing that didn't work out. And it's just I if the rockets aren't the second best team in the west and right now, they're not maybe they will be by the end of the line. But if they're not. All of a sudden, it's wide open. Now, you're talking about a scenario where the Lakers hand get into a Western Conference final in the first year it which seems incredibly far fetched when they put this whole think anybody in this short period of time, they're going to stay the same. Everybody's gonna they're going to start to separate themselves. As time goes on is not gonna stay bunched up like this. Although last year between wanna say three to eight was what a five three three nine three games. Three games swing? But at the same time, I think when you look at it. These guys will start to separate themselves as they teed play together. Season goals wollen guys get injured in and out of the lineup. Teams will start to separate themselves won't be clustered. Like, the I don't know if that's true. I mean, you look at them. You got the warriors who are the best team in the conference. Even if they're not on top right now the warriors or going to be the best team. They're going to win the most games when Steph is getting ready to play again, they're gonna take off. But I don't know if there's anybody outside of Golden State that is going to separate. Themselves. We saw Houston to it last year. And then there was the the group three through nine it feels like the group. This year is going to be two through thirteen is gonna be tight. It's going to be tight because last season was tight. And even though there was some movement and a happy with San Antonio, Denver got healthier. It wasn't as if they got a complete game changing the way that the Lakers got a game changer. I feel that part of the calculus LeBron James coming out west is because when you look at the east the combination of talent and youth to me makes it look as if it's going to be a much more difficult task from the Brian to get a championship coming through to east long-term because of the combination of youth and talent in the east whereas in the west at the Golden State Warriors. I mean, let's face it. There's a lot of thirty some euros on holding things down. Yes. I mean, you look at okay, see? West just turned thirty Westbrook. Just turned thirty you Mechat Houston Rockets. They got Chris Paul you look at Memphis grizzlies. They got a song. And I don't expect him to stay there. A Paul Millsap someone that differ nuggets. Depend on he's in his third. I mean, there's there's a there's a lot of reasons to look at the west and say if you wanna Brian James, you're looking at four year gap, can you sneak in chip or opportunity in that four year you'd have to be Golden State. You just have to go into on equal footing with and this is this is kind of coming full circle. Again, back to our conversation about not just Lonzo, but Lonzo and Ingram and the Bradley Beal conversation we had yesterday if this is open as it appears that it is if the west is Golden State, and then a group of ten teams after them. I do too. But don't you like chances more? If you make a move all of a sudden, and I'm not saying this exactly this. But something in the Bradley Beal universe where maybe it's not Kevin Durant or Klay Thompson or one of these mega stars that you're hoping to get in the off season. But it's the next best thing because instead of saying, okay, I'm not Houston. I'm not Golden State. I'm not this that and I'm in fifth place, and I'm going to get beaten the first or second round. Anyway, it's hey now all you have to do is get hot for one series to be going state. And I'm in the fine. What's the western different? Now. What's the next best thing though? When you start talking about those guys are off the table in his Bradley Beal. But then after that what if the entire you get it ain't Lillard if the entire that would take a Dame limit before I would Bill. Okay. But I I would put them, and I agree with you. I think Lillard a little bit better than deal a little more valuable. But one of those guy that all of a sudden now, you just don't have LeBron and a bunch of guys auditioning for the second role, you've got LeBron and Lillard or LeBron and Beal or LeBron in somebody. And then you have guys additioning, but you own you're able to pull that trigger. If you have a sense or or definitive answer. Coli and Durant and more quieting than Durant. I my rent's gonna stay. But like Kawhi. I don't know if he's going to stay. But like Travis is saying this is so wide open. Right. You may not you may not catch Golden State, but you close the gap so significant urine Houston position. Yes. Over year ago with with a Dame Lillard in or somebody that I don't know who he would get that wouldn't even be equal to that. But you know, that type of player you may you close that gap significantly, and then you look to twenty twenty and we never even looked at twenty twenty you look for now. And because here's what can happen. And look Golden State is better than everyone else in the west. But say Steph curry gets another injury. Let's say Kevin Durant rush. All of a sudden, it's like it's not a one fifty shot. It's a one in ten shots. Five shots. Why human Draymond? I really get into scrap. Right, right. Which is why I say when you look at the west we look at the east and that for years. Here you got the Greek freak coming into his own. He got the Philadelphia boys. Obviously, Boston Toronto is still our T right there. Seventeen four all for teens that for the next four years are just going to be a problem. Whereas you look in the west by going actually, we should be the problem if these young guys develop over the next four years, we're actually the problem. I don't think we need a big name guy. But if you sit and you question in you say young guys, but you questioned certain young guys abilities. Yes, don't believe that they get there in the next three years. They show the Helling obedient four if they can't get the three it's a Greek freak a minute. He didn't these guys. These guys are that. Yeah. He was he was different because he was long, and he just sends me told me just different. I'm just saying I'm not saying we have a Greek freak. I'm just saying. By example, it took on just scoop onto Cuco you'd have to try to say his name say Greek freak man, you smart on impo. We know you speak manual. You know, I get no credit. You know, because you expect you to do that. They don't expect us to be able to say to the whole it took them a minute though, it did it took him like a minute before. He really started this show potential not credit Jason Kidd for seeing that he needed a barn his hands more because I think the previous coach was trying to play a more as a big, man. But we gotta lower our guys to develop if you if you want to if you want to allow them to develop development stop talking about trading, but see I'm a businessman. He ain't you can't. Yes, you can you can be be willing to grow your business. What also still looking for opportunities to maybe improve your business fast? There is no development of the guys that are on the roster right now, they're going to get you in a position to be Golden State. There's just not there. I think they're they're I Bryan you've got LeBron. And that's that's a chance, but it's not LeBron. And LeBron my shot in going against the wears his I've got LeBron. It's not I've got LeBron Lillard. I've got LeBron Beal it's I've got LeBron. But you have to remember the. Formula to beat Golden State isn't offense is actually do another. But you still got to score. And you got to be defense you do have to. But you gotta be at a fan defend that a high level though. Yeah. That'd be a crack defender. He's gotta be a you legit. You need to be able to do two things to disrupt Golden State coach you need to one you have to have long perimeter defender that can switch which we have. Yes. And you have to be able to protect the pain, which we have we have to really significant elements. Now, the flip side, of course, is that. Sometimes those long defenders are good scores. That was a problem at Cleveland. They're only one-sided they were offensive couldn't switch play defense. We have to length. The question is can we get enough consistent offense of these guys to be true threats, and I got to wait and see on that can't wait to slow. Its stock. Price has a red arrow right now. You can't wait forever. Some of that. The Rams are ten in one coming out of there. Not they're about to get better going into week thirteen. I'll tell you what. I mean that is coming up next. Happy birthday. Happy birthday Jalil white. Who's that? That's urkel are say's main Stefan or Keller, Steve urkel. Oh, Steve urkel, Steve. I didn't like when Stefan or kill show. You wanted to grow as an actor. And you want a new challenge. Message on my show because you because you can't get cast me anything. That's not my problem. My problem. Take the money go to hold you know, what I'm talking about. No gilio. But I don't know the other show. Oh, well, Jalil had one show. Yes. Okay. So watch urkel a couple times. But then later in the series, he transformed into Stefan or Cal urkel anymore. You're smooth. Yeah. Because he wanted a different role. Right. But nobody would cast him. So he just did it in say urkel that was like a few, you know, a few episodes. I may have watched a few episodes. I'm on man. Yeah. Just wasn't TGIF Friday night. Yeah. There was only like a half of us. It wasn't a great show. Hey, hey, how are you? What it was? I wasn't a show. Like Seinfeld prunes, even by your friends. Seinfeld. Friends, sean. Yeah. Seinfeld's funny matters wasn't wasn't. I had an oracle doll. I was also a youth at that time. It wasn't. It was super easy. It was super cheesy. But network comedy was super cheesy back then you didn't like Martin either. No Martin was actually funny. Funny, family matters matters had that physical humor. Yeah. It was. It was all like misunderstanding humor. It was silly days in do. So has it wasn't no dukes of hazzard head. Daisy. Duke just a ball and fos hog, which is problematic in retrospect ball talk. Or the car with the confederate. I didn't even know what that one is. Okay. Bed. Albums with that general Lee understand the flag. I didn't understand why boss Hogg was an all white. There are some things in retrospect Khuda was cooter. I didn't understand any of it other than they would play for Travis that you pitch for the Rancho Cougars the rats show Cougars. Hey, so disrespectful. That's fine. Hey what? So the Rams are ten and one they've lost one game. They just had their by. And they're going to be better from this point four because they're getting to keep till he back that they activated him. He could be available this week against the lions they were better than I would arrest them one morning. Make sure he's on her percents that bears game. The lines lines will come to play they'll come to play in. You know, they pick on jeopardy man, but they play the pay and they want to be the spoilers in this situation. Early game. It's ten o'clock game. You gotta travel. I mean, they gotta be prepared and ready to play period. That's known us. He needs to DP get out there to really be ten Li he needs to get out there and knock off some of the rust. Maybe he doesn't play. You know, you keep him on a pitch count them play the entire game. But getting some reps. He needs some reps in live action seeded the speed of the game and all those sorts of things because they'll play Chicago to follow him. We look I understand. It was the raiders in the cardinals. And a portion of the chargers game. Nearly did it again San Diego game. Sandy back to the matter is they their best defensive football the year came when till he was here they thirteen points against the raiders zero against the cardinals. And I want to say twenty three or four against the chargers today. Three twenty three the that those were the three best defensive performances of the year. Really San Francisco a little bit later, but they can get move the ball. Anyway, with leave all of a sudden instead of having to win games fifty four to fifty one they might be able to win games forty something to twenty something thirty something to twenty something. And I think he. Changes it that's significantly. No, notice no doubt about it. There was a reason why he was one of the big names that we're all excited about that. The Rams were able to acquire. I just don't know if you. I mean when you think about what happened to Cooper Cup? Dubar up and there's a question about whether or not we rushed him back from his injury. Not allowing him to fully recuperated. When I'm looking at trait lions, they're not going to get fifty points. You know may not get forty points. They may not even get thirty points. I think we'll be okay if we didn't play him, and they don't have one more week of rest. Yeah. Opposed to you know, put him out there in a situation where it was almost like a priestly. Here's what I'm gonna say. So that you know, I know you've been covering sports for a while as a journalist and germs Ulama sort thing. Also plays. You got to realize that he's not just coming back today. They cleared, and that's all I stayed doing football acclimated things probably a couple of weeks. Now. Now, he's finally pushed up level. So getting getting him a quarter and a half over a period of time against Detroit, however, many minutes and things of that nature on a pitch count. You certainly can use him in certain situations. Putting bring him in nickel and dime situation. Obviously passing downs where you're playing soft coverage, and he's not fully extended running with people all of those sorts of things. I'm sure that they're looking at to getting ready for the Chicago stretch rook they need them for Chicago that that's the one game. You look at the rest of the way and things not like. Do all his saints passing. No. It's not. But it's a Sunday night game. It's going to be Soldier Field. It's cold primetime game. It's cold this. And by the way, it's also game. You have to win to keep to keep pace with the the saints. Because I if the saints South Carolina twice that's play the Steelers fill in the poor. They are. But they still got Cam Newton. They still got some players that are dangerous that could beat you. I think that if the Rams get to the finish line fifteen to one I think they're the number one seat. I don't I don't see New Orleans. Not losing again. You look at the Rams they got they got Arizona. They've got San Francisco and say something different. Yeah. He probably would hear Sean McVay talking about how they get ready for the remaining part of their season. The first thing is is it's a credit to what they've done up to this point to be playing relevant games that have a lot of meaning as we continue to progress. You know, our message doesn't change J B in terms of it's about that one day to time one week at a time mindset mentality. Now, the nice thing for us is because they're ten in one because of some of the things they've done we go take care of business in Detroit. Reut we're NFC west champs. So you know, that's that's our goal. We know it's going to be a great challenge going on the road. But our preparations started today, and then it'll really pick up with our, you know, the implementation of our early down in this since game plan on Wednesday when the players return, Sean McVay on the coach McVay show. He said our goal is to win the NFC west. Yeah, I guess but not really their goal is to be the top seed in the NFC. They're going to win the NFC west. They're not gonna they'd have to lose the rest of their games. Don't have to win the rest of theirs. They're going to be the NFC west champs. So they they've checked that box. Maybe not mathematically put it what she had to go to take forget about the adults gonna take mathematically to win the division. Yeah. If to win one more game the Seattle doing anything right to lose anything like for the Seahawks to win the division. No, not win division. I'm saying do they do if Seattle wins. And around Ramseys have to win have to win one game. They just have to win one more of that to win one of their last five games. Oh, that's win the division. It's done. That's what I'm saying. It's done the form the struggled. Oh, what's that? We already do struggle. Yeah. But I don't want to win now. Because then it goes to big on the rest of the players and all that crazy, but they can't because they're. Right. This is why I think that the goal isn't to win the west which is already begun. They're the goal is to be the number one lever overtime son, some something's happening over here. A watch. Because I'm like, what do they mean to do them like s right New Orleans, but it's not only New Orleans dumbbells sitting in their peanut gal. Actually action personal now. You actually got a factory in Chicago because they are only two games back. If the bears beat the Rams so there's second the peanut gallery. Can you bring up Washington when you was like audio? Just thinking in my mind of thinking out loud. Don't you do that sometimes bringing in my mind, he bears beat the Rams sudden the Rams drop? One more the bears are the second seat in the Rams have to go on the road in a division around potentially. Which would be disastrous like some damn kids in the back of the bus making noise and making driver nervous all the time. You know today is what? National Bavarian tree pi day before. Where you go. Are you hope we say something wrong? Have you ever had cleaned by? L Z's top ten already coming up next. At least modest. Occasion. We're hiring poker on occasion. Oh, yeah. You guys. Especially vic. Losing weight? Just that whole thing meeting setback. But if you care about the pigskin of our conversations their next, strong, social commentary happy. Yeah. Boy aren't just cracking here. Making sense. I think we go. MSNBC where we are right now. What you're talking about? Because we go. All right. He knows coming. I hadn't said anything about Blake Bortles being benched and her cabinet could have been there the whole time. They would have probably been favorites. Ready? Say anything traded for teddy Bridgewater, very just real quick before we get to it. When are we not that it's right or fair or anything like that? I'm talking strictly from a football perspective winner. When is the hey Cap'n. It could have that job. When are we out of that window? Season the forty five seasons. Oh, you think my next year? We're not next net. Qazis in the end of the day. As long as they keep signing. Bums? Exactly. Yeah. They go. Yeah. She'll we're going to be twenty twenty two. It's starting Cody Kessler. Blake Bortles, Tommy. Tom, Tom Fava's Thompson just got higher, man. What I'm saying? He can't play. The point is is that if he hasn't played in three years, obviously, it's never going to happen. But that doesn't mean you let them off the hook. You just remind them that this was never about football, you'd leave Cody Kessler alone Trojan, but seriously. It's time for ELLs these top ten. Well, as you know, we like to do the birthdays and today happens to be uncle fails birthday James Avery passed away in twenty thirteen. God bless God bless the death. Why did you take him? Traffic's. Phil I liked who didn't go. In fact, uncle Phil started me have me thinking about all the ankles in American culture that have been influential both positively and negatively. Okay. So this is my top ten uncles in American cultural history both positive and negative coming in number ten uncle buck. Book with the ankle that you really wanted to take care of John candy. John candy. You don't remember this movie? No, remember made the pancake the size of this table right here. Everybody. The parents went out of town uncle buck took care of the kids didn't do very. I went to take care of me. So that's number ten coming in number nine Oncle, Jesse from the dukes of hazzard. Okay. Now, he wasn't a racist one now. No, he wasn't. He was the nice racist, which he didn't have any. He didn't have to black people around. But he'd necessarily hate us even. Hazard. No, no. He wasn't. He wasn't. It moves. He was making that would drunk. You did he sold the product when taste it defined out. You don't get drunk just tasteless not cocaine once. I don't think not. By the way. I don't know if Jesse just not hating is the bar. We need to clear, but in hazzard county might be worth enough. You always get the boys out of trouble and stuff coming in number eight. Speaking of has a county uncle, Tom. The time and your family. I mean, I do have. Uncle Tom is yes. Did you notice that? I was very careful about how I answered the question. I haven't alkyl my dad's brother is named Tom. Yes. So I haven't got in trouble for calling somebody that we're. Player knows far from that you use it. The other way are called. Yeah. I think that's that's enough to be said about. Number seven did say, positively or negatively I did I did come in number seven uncle, Ben the rice guy, the rice guy will be one. I was thinking more of Peter Parker's ankle. See I was thinking I was thinking guy to Peter Parker's uncle who gave us one of the greatest quotes and come in book history. With great power comes great responsibility. I understand great Powell gray spots. But I was thinking that around rice because when we finally got uncle Ben in our kitchen. I felt we made it. Before it was a long break clear bag, right? So where you were on MTV cribs you show it off. Oh, I got. No stick. He got the lion. Go boom, you know, to bat rice that we? Bag clear right here. The watch it twelve times. Doc fees. On top stuff that right hand. So you'd never you is not been a gated community. We actually had a full meal every night. Rice, the first three square waters all white. See I love. Was a second brand of rice other than uncle Ben like had monopolize the rice market. Number six Uncle Sam. Sure. Now, it depends upon how you about the country to you. You know? You know, he wants you. Of course, some some of us even. But he still wants you still wants you number five. This is one of our favorite uncles here at the station. Uncle Keyshawn got a nephew doing great things and NFL. I've never heard of mention anything about that. Nipping? Told you if I ever get a job as a front office guy. I'm hiring everybody in my family. What about Roger ni-? Oh, that's good. You guys will run like the radio department. I mean, I mean on on getting your paperwork filed. You gotta make sure you straight. Number four onto fester Addams fan. The ball guy. Put this win the big Addams family guys are the house a Munster's guy. That's why it's the same thing. Cooler though, right? It was just like her was just going to other. Did it was week? They're both monsters just living in the neighborhood. Yeah. But what they also never mind. Going say daughter Friday, go say Friday, keeping moving keeping moving number three Jesse from full house, notice John stamos. There's two processes on the list, apparently, Jesse was popular never watched house. No, no, no, nother one. That was bad. It was a show that I thought was good. And then I realized I was just gay. Stay most. I thought he was I thought it was a good show. I like this show. You work full house in gay together. Come on, John stamos shown any comment. Why comments? I just he you know that happens a lot like I didn't realize like to do. Like to do. Visit a car with. Let's go. I'm going to be me doggone. I'm here. I'm gonna let you know. That's right history. Number to fill. Uncle to uncle failed. All the great quotes. The great means you. Every single time. Something bad happens. They had the little wheel Smith phase looking ankle field going how come nobody wants me? I knew they had that with recently Kamilo, Anthony. All right. All right. It's perfectly right? That's I guess I guess and number one Travis. The number one uncle in American pop culture history. Yeah. Transform the way we thought about booty transform the way we felt about get onus transform the way we just talk to each other human to the beans. Uncle Luke, Luke on KOMO. No. That is. Yeah. He gets Monka new plan. No, we have nothing that we can actually play from uncle, Luke. Before Luke Skywalker film, Luke for Miami. Oh that one. Yeah. Oh, no, including I just figured they'd be when I heard this and uncle I thought you're gonna go uncle oh and stores. That's a weird place. Not put. One. I can't believe we can't get no Luke plan. We want to see on the year. There's no clean versions of not a single play a beat how about the instrumental. Can you get the intro? How about one rib pop. Listen about. Uncle Luke, the number one on coll- in pop culture history as pertain to me, according to L Zia's top ten there, you go and happy birthday gained uncle fair. We miss you fill. I think she had the top spot. Everybody loves uncle, Phil. Everybody knows looking Luke. Well, that's uncle being rice. Yeah. I can't believe you had to say rice. We did may not. May not be. So why if you black you right used to be so right? The first time you wash it looked like in the like just like it was it the bowl was. So e putting the ball all the white. I don't know what the residue off. The rice is probably better off not knowing. SE made their decision, and it looks worse. A couple of days after we'll get into it next who here. Here is. I wanted to go to university of Miami, so bad. Yes. Doesn't is. Because Aluko what? Hurricane you baby. So maybe that's what they need to do. We did then got trouble. We now blue clay helton's coming back to get the screen. We did that in got suspended and took the in in on top of that. We're coming off probation all of the we did that it was a lack of institutional control. Right. We look on the sidelines. Every celebrity and ten we did that snoop everything we did it. And we got in trouble. They're not in trouble anymore, unless you consider the fact that they have a coach you can't win football games being in trouble and they're bringing him back. And what does that mean now at the desk to set a little bit? But does that factually tryst that he can't Lynn football? They went five and seven they lost to Cal at home. They lost ASU this year. They haven't beaten a good team since they beat Penn State in the Rose Bowl a couple years ago. And the reason they did that is because they had a first round draft pick a quarterback, but everybody has the first round draft from this. I mean, Alabama's got a guy who's the first round in Alabama's playing for the national championship, and you and USC didn't. And they had one we almost hit. Wasn't a conversation. Remember we were sitting in key about whether or not we're going to get into play. They're losing to Utah. They're losing a cow. They lost to two eight UCLA team. It's there's nothing about this. That makes you think hey, you know, what we're on the right track. You look at UCLA and UCLA had a terrible season. But they were better at the end, and they weren't too beginning. And chip Kelly is implementing his his system, and it's coming together. And it's working in clay Helton, the Trojans at the end of the year were more or less the same that they were at the beginning of the year, which I would ultimate read your thousand percent, right? We never got. To a point where you felt like, okay, we'll getting back. Here comes we. We got bad. We have that. No bad inconsistent all year inconsistent all year long. We have one good rushing half maybe against somebody in that was pretty much. It was like maybe against Oregon state or something. But that was it. We never really we never really got all wheels. Turning the reason I say though, it's not. Disaster to keep me more is low, and I'm going to keep saying this as low as he gets the right assistant coaches head coach is all about assistance. If you don't have the right assistance. You're not going to be worth anything. I don't know a good head coach with poor systems. I mean, I could point to. I mean, you can look at Michigan. Yeah. Michigan got smashed by Ohio State. But that defense played really, well, you tell you what number one is pretty much the entire year because at defensive coordinator knew exactly what he was doing. And they knew how to coach those players up. Now, they got the house state that was a different situation. You look at ala. Bama you look at some of these programs that have top notch. Guys. You look you look at a guy like Jimmie lake that said university of Washington who's their defensive coordinator, Jim, Lebanon, Oregon, Jim, Lebanon, Oregon. These guys are good not only recruiters Yano to how state but not only recruiters, but they also can coach guys up those positions that they coach constantly first round pick first round pick Jimmy lake first round pick. Every time he looked up. He was getting top guys out of the secondary at the university of Washington. Same thing with Jim Levitt? Jim Levin was getting guys when he was at the university of Colorado. He had guys going high in the draft that was draftable God's classy Pentagon didn't even recruit for us. Yeah. I don't know if you knew that or not he doesn't recruit he's just a coordinator doesn't go out on the road. Doesn't sit in homes. He doesn't like the recruiting business because he's made for the NFL. You got to get people that really want to do it. And that's the way clay held in my fails it, but do you have faith that he is going to be able to go and hire the right bodies and put them in the right places. When he's demonstrated that he's not capable of doing that in the first three years. I mean, I understand you got to go out and get the right person. But it's very much like the situation with Jerry Jones in Dallas. If the book of stopping here, do you have confidence where the buck stops is going to actually be the best decision. And I would argue that if we've been complaining about the assistance every year since we've been on this show. In the first place. Then right. He's going to hire him the next time the same guy the same guy that hired. These guys is going to be responsible. Ultimately, I would imagine for hiring the next crop guys. It key. I agree with you that your system in football in particular. But in anything, if you're the CEO of a company, it's your vice presidents that you have to have right to make sure that it works. If you no matter what it is. You're doing if you're a sales manager your sales reps need to be right or else. You're numbers aren't going to be all of these things. But at the end of the day, the guys you hire. And the the the company that you build the coaching structure that you build it's a reflection of you that your your going to go and hire the guys that you he's not going to go higher the guys that Nick Sabin hires because Nick Sabin knows what he needs the reason he has all these guys that go onto the next spot is because he knows exactly the world. Yes. Cry smart guys. They coached us at the university. He's going anywhere. The next group of guys. So why is it going to be? I mean, it might be different temporarily maybe buzz and energy, but maybe maybe to be different because people alumni kisha what flowed out of names to help in the process. Well, they got to be able to accept you. Can't you can't be so era Ghent that that guys like myself or Curtis Conway or any of the Matt line even for for for our program to disown Reggie Bush based on what the NC two A findings was which was a bunch of nothing to not allow Reggie Bush to be a part of the USC football family in a program is ridiculous to me. It doesn't make any sense at all. I don't care what anybody says you got to be able to accept that. You can't win person gives you a recommendation or person gives you a name to take a look at you can't be jibbidy Jabber. He can't live. And then you go higher do Kentucky somewhere to has no idea about the landscape by with you can't do that. Well, I think that you said it yesterday key. When when the question of if all of a sudden, you snap your fingers in clay Helton was a free agent head coach where would his next stop? He and you said ball steak fine institution. Okay. Fine. Yeah. But ball state is not a premier college football program. That's not premier any. David letterman. I know you weren't. But my point is is that it's ball state. The answer wasn't. I'll tell you Hiram, right Michigan. I'll tell you who to hire him Oklahoma or Clemson or Alabama or Georgia or Florida state or. Restaurant because because he's not there yet. He's not he's not looked at as one of the premier coaches in college football, although he's at one of the top premier programs if this was a national championship year, and he was coming off of that. And you asked me that same question. Did I have said to you? Oh, he can go to Michigan. He didn't go to state. If that's not the case. Nobody's going to take a guy that people basically are seeing as a journeyman head coach in higher him in a top tier power five fits, and I'm gonna do the comparison. And I understand that there's a giant, but in this because of the drinking issues, but when Sark got capped from U USC, it took him four seconds, and he was at Alabama. And then he was back in the NFL just Alabama NFL back because personal issues aside. He's a good football coach he knows what's going Klay Hilton doesn't have that reputation. But I think I think if clay if that was the case if Clayton need it to be a assistant coach like Sar. I've had to do before lane left, and he took the job before pekair vouch waiting to go to Atlanta Falcons with with Dan Queen who Pete's it. Hey, take my guy. I think Klay could be in that position as a head coach. I think it's gonna be very difficult. If you say if he gets capped he makes me laugh if he gets cap at USC that he's going to be able to walk into another power five program and take over. I don't think that that would be the case unless there's some sort of relationship with the athletes direct. Yeah. But I'm just looking at because he hasn't just because he hasn't there's this negative feeling about him because he doesn't won at a see if you can't win. But he hasn't one hasn't won the way that SE should win or think their customers Chris Peterson became available. There's a line to hire him if David Shaw becomes available. Also the line to hire if winning ham became airborne line. Become might be line. Heaven sold becomes available against somebody will hire him. If clay Helton becomes available. He's going to go coordinate somewhere. Yeah. Then that's that tells you the way that he's perceived and probably accurate break task. So now the next question is how do you get over it? How do you recruit to USC when all of those things that we decide are true that your responsibility key gives the answer next.

After the championship game we celebrated we saw probably the two best teams last year, Maui, and Dayton in Kansas teams that we could potentially have seen in the national championship we've called that are defacto national championship game for the last year but I also want to point out as far as the things that have changed we're going to the mainland we're going to Asheville north, Carolina my home state I'm very excited about that, but there is no to Maui in the title this year. Martinez. This. But it used to be the Maui Jim Maui invitational. This year is just the Maui invitational Maui Jim. We'll be back next year and we can't wait to hang out with Maui. Jim. We got. We got lots of plans for us in Maui. Jim. To party it up in Maui together. But this year just the Maui invitational one Maui one time on the mainland and it's GonNa. Be One hell of a time. Maui Jim does not leave Maui he he's not called astronaut Jim he's. Molly, we tried. We Beg Maui Jim and Jim. told us no no. Said you bring it back next year I'll, be there. No you brought up a good point that Kansas state last year was was one of the best malversation title Games. We've ever seen maybe the best A. For All, we know it could have ended up being the national championship review as you said, maybe not. That was whatever new. We'll never know. We're going to flush it down. We have to move onto this year and we have a great field this year we have a great field every year in the medication. We're especially excited about this field tape because you grew up in north. Carolina. And I grew up in Indiana hoosiers fed. Both of those teams will be in this year's smelly of. So we have a little close to home for the two of us. Yes. It's the best is the best case scenario we were GONNA have our families go out to Maui. We're GONNA have a full experience We we were so jealous last year seeing the Kansas fancy and coach bill self hanger by the police said, we want that for our families but this year Nashville is going to be even more special even more. Than we could ever have imagined last year and I think it all starts at the top with the the North Carolina Tar heels being in their home state Roy Williams gets it done the tournament of champions and that's what people are calling this at least. That's what I'm calling this. And I just can't wait coach Oldham Autumn shout out to him, running the Bowie team and getting this going. So we're we're very excited but the people are here for bracket reveals. Bracket, we're. We're we're talking too much. This always happens. They're fast. They're saints show us the Dan Bracket already and that's what we're GONNA do without further. Ado. Here is your twenty twenty Maui invitational bracket. All right take gay one starting us off Texas versus Davidson. Shock is smart Davidson. Was Actually India to a smart I looked this up because I was trying to make sense of like when Davidson joined eight when shock smart left for Texas they had a one year overlap and Chaka smart plays Bob mckillop Davidson they play three times shock wins two out of the three. But it was weird because the last time they played. So Davidson shock plays Davidson. At the end of the year they they lose twenty-seven vcu loses by twenty seven. Davidson. They turn around nine days later beat Davidson Twenty, eight, ten tournament. This was in two thousand fifteen. This is five years ago. So I'm not sure how much that matters. That just shows you the contrast. He'd styles of shocker smart Bob mckillop in a nine day span there's a forty plus point swing and outcomes. All that is to say good luck trying to figure out what's going to happen in this game? Yeah. Well, this is the old guard and the new guard of sorts shock. Mars. Obviously beloved. We've talked about this Ad Nauseam on our program Titus and tape, but we're happy to see Texas a big time program trying to make a statement here shocking says he's ready. His team knows that it's it's it's every man up Andrew, Jones the story line to look. Out For as far as the Cova complications of what may happen but they're they're all in on that and then Kellyanne Grady for people that don't know at home killing grady is Steph. Curry two point Oh he is at Davidson Bob mckillop in his thirty second year at Davidson and I have to repeat that because that is something else. It's thirty second year. Davidson, one of the great head coaches of all time and he'll be in his home state as well. Yeah Davidson is technically and I say, technically in quotes. The worst team in this field technical. I did nothing against Davidson. It's just if you're setting odds as to WHO's going to win Davidson is probably the lowest odds but this is a. Huge but yeah, Kelly Grady might be the best player in the entire field. So that is an interesting little wrinkle their of Alsace Steph curry just because the guy is at Davidson obviously he wears thirty one he looked up to steph curry and he he's a jacker. Let me takes a lot of. Kobe words forty four. It's amazing. It's. Going to be one better Texas, the Scott Report on Texas this date. The longhorns were two four way tie for third of the big twelve last year, which is a big time Texas basketball stat I mean, we don't need to Belabor the point of Texas basketball being. Good enough to get your good enough to make you wonder why they're not better. That is kind of the story line with Texas. Every year is like you're good enough to grab my attention. But now you have my attention, I can't help but notice that you should be better and you're not. But they bring everybody back from that team last year, they had a five star in grey-brown. From Austin Yep once again, people are saying I don't know which people but there are people saying that this is shocking smart best team he's had a Texas so. There's there's GonNa be some high expectations. It's going to be an interesting game just to kick us off. Yeah, and Greg Brown is the name to wash. Texas, because shocker hasn't really giving him glowing reviews you know coming out of camp so far he said he's a freshman freshman things. We love that when is doing those types of things and but I think he he'll get there. He has the athleticism to be really great player as we've seen with Jackson Hayes and some of these other guys over the years, and then we remember in Vegas Koby. White versus. One of the great showdowns in College Basketball History. With those two guys went off in shock. I get that big win against Carolina he's He's good early in the postseason and Texas will be TV reckon with. It's it's definitely going to be an interesting match up. The winner of Texas Davidson we'll be playing in the second round the winner of Indiana Providence your team that is our game number, two, the hoosiers versus the friars. Again Indiana and Providence I think Indiana probably has higher expectations. The providence providence has been I'll say this about providence I'm a little surprised by I. Love Cooley One of the most entertaining first of all is a good coach but more importantly to us to content guys like us. He's an entertaining coach. He's a Great Interview Great Guy Fund Fun to follow all of that stuff but I was a little surprised state providence has been a little so-so since the Chris Dodd Ben Benzel. Team and what was that twenty sixteen? They've been a little that was like five years ago. They should have a decent did they would've made the tournament last year they had won six straight I think at the end of the. Lease they got hot last year but. Probably. The third best team in the new big East rights and status. Yeah. Villanova Xavier and then Providence. So I don't mean to suggest suggested like Providence is at a crossroads program whatever. But what I am trying to set up the point I'm trying to set up here is that this could be a big year for like the. If I'm Ed Cooley I'm like man we get it going this year. We got a good thing going we got David Duke. Yes. That is his real name. Yes. Why should he have to change it? He's not the asshole that's the the all the Office Space Joke about Michael Bolton David Duke local kid from Providence. He's he's a stud he's going to be awesome for them. But I feel like Indiana has to be the favourite in this game, but I'm not just saying that. Guy But trace Jackson. Davis is going to be one of the best players in the country this year I think he's he's he's going to be great. He's going to be great I'm just warning everybody he's going to be great. Well I'm GonNa tell you is going to be great because he changes number and this is one of the things that you do in college basketball sort of cement the fact that either you're trying to take a step down to say I'm not really that guy you know, let me just get a different number or to step up and say I'm really him. And Trace Jackson. Davis is wearing number twenty, three folks. So he is trying to say I am him I. AM trying to bring the hoosiers back and I think you're one hundred percent right on the fact that Indiana and Archie. Miller they're trying to make some noise. This year they're trying to there's going to be a little addition by subtraction, devante green has gone. Transfer Justin Smith great player for probably a little a very good player for Indiana transferred to. Believe Arkansas. But he he never really fit in. He never looked archie will decision that much. So they him leaving might end up being a blessing in disguise for for the Hoosiers Al Durham, Rob Fantasy and the guy that that that the next big recruit that's coming into Bloomington. The next five star that that's going to change everything and bring the hoosiers back. His name is Christian La- Lander Tate. I can already tell that you're gonNA hate the guy because his name sounds so close to Christian Leitner. But You got you got later you've got fantasy Durham with trace Jackson Davis that that is a winning combination. I'm excited about the city entity but the big ten going to be stacked I should say that so it's GonNa. Be a weird year because Indiana's probably going to finish fifth in the big ten but actually have a very good team and it's going to be impossible to tell whether there should be happy about that. They're going to be happy and I know one man that's going to be happy and named that you didn't mention this Joey bronc and he is based on the research I. Did he gain ten pounds over the all season? So he? Is it. All Muscle. Yes. He's coming back to fifty five. So watch out for Joey Brooke and Watch out for Race Thompson. Also one of my favorite names on the Indiana hoosiers team. So great great name to have an Indie to. Be named. Grace in Indiana. So yeah. That is the one side your bracket Texas Davidson Indiana Providence. One of those teams will be playing for the malversation title on the other side. Game number three of the tournament. We have your North Carolina. Tar, heels UNLV. Tate we the story. North. Carolina as it always is anytime north. Carolina's involved with anything because you're just such a blood to you suck up so much oxygen in the room are under normal circumstances but these are not normal circumstances. We are coming off of one of the worst north, Carolina basketball seasons of all time. Why should anybody believe that things will be different this year for the tar heels well, people know the recipe Mark Titus and the recipe as North. Carolina goes to Maui North Carolina Wins Maui North Carolina wins at all and when they're playing in. Maui. There's a certain air that comes around the team in Roy Williams himself that says, we got a real shot of doing this guys. This is what we do. We learn from Maui we win in Maui that's a nice tournament atmosphere. One of the best atmospheres you'll ever get outside of the actual NCAA tournament is you and I both know. Roy Williams is ready because he's got some pieces you got K love and air at Rj Davis got some young freshmen that are gonna make some noise and then got a you know an older guy that usually works for a big man garrison brooks who's coming back for this North Carolina team but the real the real story here is that in twenty. Eleven North Carolina played in Orleans arena in Vegas, a preseason tournament and Kindle Marshall was on that team. Jon Hinson James Michael mcadoo Harrison Barnes Reggie Bullock PJ hairston and they played a UNLV team that went on a fourteen run in the second half and I was at the game mark tight. It's not to make it about me and all I heard was read. Bulls Red Bulls and the rebels won that game they beat a team that was preseason you know destined title and it shook up that team got them going and they kind of rolled off from there and had a great season of course. But that moment in time Roy Williams will remember at Roy Williams verse unlv I think that's his retribution for that moment. I think Carolina is going to bounce back. It pains me to say because last year was so fun and it sucks that that we didn't have a tournament without Carolina I was just. I don't know I squeezed as much out of it as I could cause housed API Carolina and I rubbed in your face often as I could. But it was just so unsatisfying that we didn't have the tournament and really it's a bummer for you because you get. So you get. So wound up watching Carolina play in the tournament and I was I was excited to see how you would've handled. It's with no Carolina where you could have just been relaxed and let's Who Cares I don't have to worry about who were playing tomorrow or you know we're the brackets shake out you're like, just enjoy it and then the tournament got cancelled but I think I think Carolina is going to be better. They're going to be better but I think they're going to be pretty good. I think they should probably be the favorite thing especially because we're playing in Nashville. Is. That ultimately the the difference was that that. Carolina called in the favor of Roy thing. You think I mean Roy is basically playing a home game not he is from right outside Asheville Dave Odom, they have a great relationship so we don't know who he called, but we do know that molly was never a doubt. You know there was going to be a tournament and they wanted to be in North Carolina and It's beautiful I can't wait UNLV Bryce Hamilton's the big name you need to know for the rebels sixteen points a game last year score can can light it up especially playing like a plane gets North Carolina at that tempo. I meant to ask earlier are the software being transported from the? Nashville, we're going to have the soft rooms. Sources are saying that the ribs will stay in China Center but we're hoping that they they do something. We don't know about hair as ribs. That's a good question. Gamblers or scratching their heads about this because I was about to say, Bryson, with those software. Can Light IT UP UPTEMPO CAROLINA team, and he's Starting campaign here softened the Rim soft and there is something. Finally the final game of the first round of the valley invitational, the Stanford Cardinal versus the Alabama. CRIMSON TIDE You might be scratching your head and say, why should I care about this game? Are these teams? Any good are there are their names I? Not Everyone's glued into the college basketball landscape and and figuring out what the Hell is going on out here. Why should I care about a football school playing a Olympic sport school at Stanford and like what's going on here which two names the no number one tape for Stanford we Zaire Williams who you may have heard of his name because he was the guy who was actually the best player on the high school team where were Lebron and delayed son played together. This was the guy who was actually the guy. Recently. To Stanford and and that made big news because he could have gone basically anyone in the country. and. He's going to Stanford. He's going to be a freshman. He's going to be very, very good and we'll get to see him in the first round the magnitude number two on the other side Alabama has a guy by the name of Von. Quarterly who you might remember was a five star point guard that originally went to Villanova and just could never figured out energy right? God knows what happened there we got figure that that's the mystery. That's the new is that the new Michael Porter mystery for the quarterly mystery? Absolutely. That's for sure but that is that is what I have. My eye on this first round game is just the superstar potential between those two guys quarterly you gotta you gotTa imagine this guy is ready to to silence the hater state. That went down to Villanova. You just have to imagine that, right? Yes. At the malleable tation last year bill self created an answer. The first question that's ever been asked message to the haters. And we are going to build on that brand with quarterly. Of course, you know in this situation where he can talk about going to school that just won a national championship and not being able to figure it out. It's a five star. You mentioned the word potential. When you look at these two programs, they are built on potential because they're built on future five stars, Harrison Ingram a five star just committed to Stanford, Jared Hass. The coach at Stanford was an assistant longtime assistant. With? Roy Williams he knows the game. He knows North Carolina he was a UAB before he played in the battle for Atlantis with that team. So he knows these preseason tournament. So he's going to have you know a little bit of an advantage here especially knowing, Roy Williams to Stanford's team to watch for his dark horse I would say, and then you look at Alabama and if you keep up with the recruiting World Mark Titus I read our story the other day that said this. I'm laughing because it was so funny is it the school to watch out for for dukes potential top recruits? Twenty one. Alabama and we're not talking football. Album, basketball NATO is doing really well on the recruiting trail. With a bunch of guys he's bringing to well, maybe he was well rea-. Sniffing, some out this. I it's it's a five star match up at the bottom of the bracket. Maui that's all we can say. That is the matchup of of that game. Yes. The superstar, the individual level potential debris for. Interesting to me because as I Williams is going to be an Anthony Edwards. That we saw last year were like. Ebony was quote unquote the best but he wasn't actually topping ended up when a national player of the year. But Anthony Ever Michael Number one the draft and he played Maui last year not a lot of people remember that because Georgia. Knopfler will last year. They basically dated Anthony Edwards sitting like clutch shot late, the beat Shemona's. Game. So I it's it's interesting to see how this all plays out because you've got, you've got Alabama where you figure early going to be carrying the load. You Got Stanford Williams might be doing that you got a Davidson I said earlier Kelvin Grady. Are But every. So often you get like a Gonzaga and Adam Morrison situation where one does carry a team to Amalia but not to the title, but the title game and you're like, well, these are Maui moments we live for. So it's fascinating tape. It's fascinating. Is All I'm GonNa say it could go either way superstars sometimes wild. This is great. You gotta out of Horse and other times it's like if you're doing a lot but you're not winning so I don't know. And sometimes you get luke Aaron goaty verse Tyler Hands Bro you know what I mean there's a full range at the Maui invitational. You can see it all in this you're going to see it on the mainland and Yeah. This is a great match up so. Let's. Let's break them down though let's let's let's make some picks. Why not? Why not we got we got nothing but time between now and then and the people need some college basketball content excited about. So Texas Davidson who do you like? I'm going to go with a smart here I would like to go with Davidson my heart says wildcats and I'm hoping my heart is right but you know my head is yelling at me the Texas longhorns of trying to make a statement they're trying to say we're here we're trying to make a real run with shock and I think it's a pivotal year for Chicago. So I'M GONNA take Texas in Game One. I'm going to agree with you I, think Davidson we forgot to bring this up. Davidson is technically more of the home team than North Carolina. Yes, close. There's a little closer than the tar heels are. So Davidson might have the home court advantage probably not. I I I think this might be the best game of the first round. Honestly I. Really do because it's I could just see Kelvin Grady just going absolutely beserk and. Yet nothing to. The weird times we're living at how much your teams practicing how much are they? Not You brought up? Andrew. Jones earlier the. The situation with with him recovering from Leukemia Mike. Does that make the the corona virus protocols at? Texas a little. Stricter that may be others I. Don't know there's so many variables that go into it that when it boils down to it, I feel like grade he's going to be the best player on the floor and that scares me but I still think I'm going to pick Texas. I, think there's a chance that Kelvin Grady does the full Maui. Bump where he becomes the star of the tournament and it goes on around with Davidson, there's like that sliver of hope that resides just because he's a senior right I mean you got robbed of his junior incidentally tournament run that he probably would have made based on you know trying to prove that he is. UNFINISHED? Business. UNFINISHED, business this is a tournament that they feel like you know all these teams are coming down to they can make a statement. This is their twenty twenty national championship game. Basically, you're killing grady so he can make a run. So maybe maybe I could be. I think I'm going to switch it. Realize it. I'M GONNA. Hit the button switches switching to Davidson Kellen great tournament moment this. All right. I'll let you switch pick Davidson I'm taking. Davis issues. He's GonNa I was GONNA ask you. WHO's your Maui bump team? We were going to get to that in a second but it sounds like well, I've already leaned away I've already. Starting to. Now. Let's go. Indiana providence you like Oh. Yeah. So Indiana in this game, Archie Miller. This is the year I still have a little bit of hesitation province with so hot going into the actual twenty twenty. Tournament or Big East Tournament. So that gives me you know David Duke has potential again to have a real tournament. So I'm GonNa go with number twenty three though I'm GonNa go with with with our Indiana hoosiers I'm GonNa go with Archie Miller the facilities have been upgraded so I have. In coachman. Is Better team think Indian has more talent. I think they're they're better basketball team and and that will. Bear itself out in this Throughout the seven, that's that's really a simple zebra providence. I say this is the top of the big picture thing. It feels like all of these teams and this is going to sound obvious but it's not always obvious state all of the teams in the tournament maybe Davidson is the one exception. NCAA tournament or bust kind of like they're like they're going into the season they're saying we have in term team. We definitely have an NCAA tournament team. And that sounds ridiculous because like doesn't every team say that the answer is no no not going. I promise you their teams. Last year, we're going to the mutation on they're like I. Hope we hope we could. Not Embarrass yourself too much here. But enough about UCLA. Leave you alone come on. Well, no UCLA was pretty good by the end of the year but yeah, Ucla wasn't going into Bowie last year saying like, yeah I got a tournament team on my hands Krona's like, where am I flip flops? Even have here. All right. So we're both in agreement I'm picking Indiana you're picking. INDIANA. Let's go. Let's continue dealer side of the Break Carolina unlv. Yeah, I. Think this is pretty simple. I. Yeah. I'm go North Carolina Because I. Think that you Mitch All these teams are trying to prove something that they are tournament caliber teams other than North Carolina has a little bit of a sour grapes about last year out Roy. Especially, I'm not sure garrison brooks by took it personally. But Roy is definitely You know offended by how they played last year and they have the. Talent now feels like day Ron Sharpe is the name to watch out four, six, six, nine, four who's a freshman I haven't heard people say his name very much. So maybe you know he's the real big man for this team but I I, like him in Walker Walker, Kessler. So if you think for one second that they're moving the malversation took like basically where Roy Williams is from and Roy Williams is going they're going to allow they're going to move all the way across the. Country to the mainland Roy's from, and then allow Roy to lose in the first round of this thing you're out of your school, your house sight of your school. If you think that that is in the realm of possibility, I'm sorry to say, unlv fans, you have zero shot in this game it's not 'cause your team's not good. It's not because you can't beat North Carolina. It's because the circumstances surrounding the same I it's kind of bryce going. It's kind of like Lebron going to the bubble a little bit. It's too perfect of a setting for not to work out. Yeah. There's no I don't know if Carolina's GonNa win the whole thing I'll flush this out in the second but. Definitely went in the first round against UNLV. Stanford Alabama, who do we like I'm GonNa Stanford I'm GonNa go jared has I'm GonNa go with him having a his team prepared I like nate's I. liked it potential like I mentioned before about Alabama but right? Yeah. Exactly. So I'M GONNA go Stanford in Alabama Extra Alex Stanford this year Stanford as reminders everybody out there Stanford once upon a time from two, thousand, two, thousand, four, one-seat, and three out of those five tournaments. They were one seat they stay had an unbelievable run not too long ago in our lifetime tate, you're old enough to remember this. And they need to bring it back and it seems like they might be bringing it back with the way recruits going yeah. No one team was a one C then you get the Lopez twins, there's a bunch of. They've. Got, the PAC twelve by the way. K. This year. Should be sneaky. Good. Excited actual. All right. So you got we agreed on a most of these picks Texas I have. INDIANA. You had Davidson India's I'll let you go first David in Indiana. shot the rest of Bracket Yeah Yeah Kelvin Grady does it again Davidson? is they basically the sweethearts of the Maui slush Ashville invitation only take care of business they go to the championship game waiting for them on the other side of the championship game after Williams has a nice back and forth with Stanford Beats Jarrett has good job aired. It was great run man you guys you got a tough team. You know you guys are going to have good season and then we're going to get to the ship Gay Bobadilla I Roy Williams to season coaches going at it in North Carolina in the home state Kellyn grady goes off does what Steph curry could never do beets North Carolina Upsets Roy? In the whole country. And Kelvin. Grady wins the MVP and Davidson remembers this forever I'm going with the wildcats at the Gets. Pushed the Button Davidson. Officially Locking Davidson has your molly bump team then. They're the molly bump team. They are the Maui champion slash, Ashville champions, and this is only because this is like old school southern conference rivalry. This is Bob mckillop doing Roy Williams really. Well, this is Williams knowing Bob mckillop well, and this is Kelvin Grady being the best player on the floor. We understand that we hear that a lot. You know just who's the best player on the floor tonight about taxes It's about. You. Know that you know that and It's about Kellan Grady and I'm Reid lightly graded the top. So go up I like it I like it. You're talking to me, I WANNA revisit my pick but I'm gonNA stick to it. I wrote them down in A. Market here. So I gotta I gotTa ruled know sharpy. Sharpie. Full, struggling. We're going to get sued for stealing bits here. All right. I Have Texas Indiana and wants to my final. UNC Stanford the other. I liked the hoosiers over Texas I like the tar heels over Stanford. It is Indiana versus north. Carolina. Not like it archer teams are going to play each other. It's destiny. We we saw the last year when Ohio state the team I the the school ended up going to and and playing for we we get. So we got to get a little taste of last year when our schools played each other this is not quite the same Indian is not my Alma Mater, but it's a team I grew up here in four so. Similar and I feel like. You might get your revenge and the tar heels win. But a much sweeter outcome in my opinion is Christian. Lander introduced else all of America and rips the hearts out of North Carolina fans at the last second shot. And North Carolina are you kidding me a guy named Christian lander? After we adored so many years of Christian Leitner. and honestly, it makes sense because then you get the lander shot like the watt for shod and it's just one moment in time. Everyone's like Archie is back. Yeah I could. I really do generally it has a good team that cheered and and it wouldn't surprise me if they get the I I am in all seriousness I don't know if you're GONNA win the thing i. North Carolina should probably be the favorite but. INDIANA, locked me in as I do think Indiana's going to be the Malley bump team I think I think you're saying is Davidson Davidson beat Texas that Davidson Indiana Game Assuming Indiana can be providence battle for the Battle for the bump model for. Whoever comes out of that is going to be ranked. Eleventh. People or whatever it is I'm so excited are any other thoughts? Any big picture thoughts anything else? We've got to wrap this thing up is just want to say thank you. For bringing us back, we're very proud and very happy to be ambassadors for the brand and I just had to say this being an Asheville with Bill Walton will probably be the greatest joy of my entire career and I and I'm saying that prior to it all coming together to fruition but I'm so excited titus and I can't wait to be back back on the air. We started this podcast. So it's GonNa live an uncertain time state these times we live in they are. Very uncertain, not only in the world at large but also in the college basketball world if you're following any of these scheduling news or anything anything going on to college basketball promised lot of uncertainty you have no idea what's GonNa go on what tournaments are going to happen what the conference schedules are GonNa, look like all that kind of stuff. So I, am excited for nothing else to have something locked in to say this is you can put this on your calendars folks we having. Tate I will be there and that's it and we're going to have a great time and we're excited because the mutation was the best and it doesn't matter if it's being played Maui or Nashville were therefore it so. I'm looking forward to good luck to all these. James. This is an awesome field. Yes. Critical. All of these teams are NCAA tournament caliber I'm very excited about that. This is going to be fun. This is GonNa be so it's going to be the best college basketball almost back. Yeah. It's back your permanent markers and write in your calendar. They're coming back. These teams are going to be there. We're going to be there it is the Maui invitational in Asheville Ashville is officially the new. Maui. You never thought that was possible. Anything is possible in twenty twenty and I can't wait.

This is Dan Patrick Final hour on this Thursday day Dan and the Danettes Dan Patrick Shell the legend Bob. Lee is in the building. We're here in New York. City Bob will join US coming up after four decades of service to E._S._p._N.. Our poll question is sponsored by man versus food on cooking channel make love and is threatening to change it after the results from the first hour or two okay yeah we had the coolest major this year and of course at Pebble Beach beat out Augusta so we're talking about this. What is the Premier College football team in the country and I actually I started out there Alabama Clemson and then I was Gonna put Ohio state but got some early tweet saying that you can't really put Ohio state because they're not Alabama and Clemson is that fair I have Alabama comes to feel like one to one to one to the former N._F._l.? quarterback Danny Canal and he does mad dog radio. He sent out a tweet and he said <hes> hate to say it but college. Football is in trouble last year's regular season was his snooze Fest Playoff Games question-mark same Clemson and Alabama dominance dominance is problematic solution question. Mark cut the schedule to eleven games eliminate the F. C.. S. cupcakes that the power five conferences must play and expand the playoffs to eight teams. I what is the goal each year. Goal is to have the two best teams play for the championship right. Isn't that the goal is that what we want because we get to March madness we love chaos and then we get to the final four or the elite eight or the championship ship game you go boy. I hope it's the two best teams playing Super Bowl. You hope it's the two best teams playing for the Super Bowl Eagles against the Patriots Rams against the Patriots. You want the best. Why is it when we get to college football? We go his boring same. WHO teams now? You're watching more pros in a game than any other game. Probably the entire year you're seeing high end coaching hall of fame coaches. You're seeing great. Players do great things but college. Football is in trouble now. Do I like seeing Alabama against Clemson every year. No do I like seeing Oklahoma or Notre Dame or Georgia or somebody else in there. Maybe a pack twelve school could step up again yeah. I'd like to see that I don't but I look at the other schools who have to step up. What do I do? Clemson and Alabama are so good that I have to find a way to neutralize them. Do we do that in any other sport. Yes mclovin well. The analogies algae's the warriors that made they some people thought they made basketball boring last five years. It hasn't really worked out that way but that argument was out there that why watch regular season the warriors are GonNa Torch. Everyone okay well. Is it the regular season that's boring of the playoffs that are boring. Well the regular the regular season definitely boring. I think I might have been true for them. The M._B._A.. Is the regular seasons boring anyway even when it was predictable you're like okay. It's another game you know mid March in your watching Cleveland Against Orlando yes Paul. I'm a big football fan. The regular seasons not boring. It's never it's always got a lot of highlights lot of great games a lot of great endings but when you get to late December and early January well I know that's going to be I know what late December early. January is going to be in college football. I don't know what September through December going to be yeah and I'm fine with watching regular season football. I'm entertained by regular season football. Even if I know what the inevitable outcome is I still enjoy watching like Mac tion or a- all of these different conferences. I enjoy watching that so I look at it. You know there's two different seasons. There is the one that's for entertainment. That's the regular season and there there is one for the awards and that's the postseason where there's a little bit more predictability. There yes mclovin eleven before the final four though there was even more urgency to the regular season because Alabama clemson could trip up now. There's you know and luckily it's only four if you went to eight the regular season would be even more watered down so maybe the arguments. There's been a little watering down. Just just a little you think if there's eighteen playoff that clemson and Alabama are still not playing for the national title no no my point is the any kind of playoffs waters down the regular season. That's why college basketball regular season. It's totally irrelevant. I think before the final four there's a good chance Alabama clemson could trip up so there it was more wide open field now. There's maybe Alabama they put in any way they're always gonNA put Alabama into the four yes because you look at Alabama with their track record and some of this is based off of previous years and that coach Nick Sabin coach team. You'RE GONNA give him more credit than he probably deserves. Yes Boeing also if you're a second tier third tier team. You can't get cracked that top four that your first year. Let's say like Perdue was eleven in one produce a nice football program they they need to be perfect to get into the final four. If Alabama is eleven and one they're probably the number one team in the country so you have to earn your way in it and like those boise state's they have to go undefeated for like a year or two to kind of get up to be considered. Our phone number's eight seven seven three D._p.. Show email address addresses DP it Dan Patrick Dot Com and bodily will join US coming up. We say good morning to our radio and T._v.. Partners around the country direct T._V.. The Audience Network Channel Two thirty nine B our live dot com. I wondered if Chris Paul could go to Miami Miami or the Lakers and defer money but I said to Fritzy and mclovin. Could you reach out to the N._B._A.. And find out. Can you defer money and can that help your team with the salary cap. We just heard from the N._B._A.. You can defer money but it doesn't help on the salary cap believe that makes it different than the Tom Brady scenario. You have been referring to okay so Chris. Paul can't take less to help the Lakers fit under the salary cap without having that luxury tax because I wondered you know Chris Paul playing for the Lakers at a reasonable price can make sense because in the right situation Chris Paul can still be a very valuable player but not at that price no that that's one hundred twenty plus this million dollars over the next three years at that age and at that position because at that position point guard look at the point guards now now. You've got to be on your game every single night because every team has it feels like a great point guard. Art Speaking of which <hes> Kimball Walker had something to say about why he chose the Boston Celtics here is <hes> Kemba Walker also winning organization. I WANNA win no. That's that's what I'm about to my basketball career as a pro. No I haven't won consistently and not just WanNa get a taste of that thought. This is the best place to do that. Okay I like to pick up Kimball Walker <hes> he's he's not better than Kyrie but he's he's different in a way that I think will help Boston because it felt like it became hero ball when Kyrie came back where these young players seem to take it an us against the world approach when they were looked at as underdogs underdog the previous year when they didn't have career Gordon Hayward and they played together and they weren't worrying about. I gotTA keep everybody happy with their shots now. We're going to find out just how good coach Brad Stevens is because you get a team that maybe as a little bit more unified and Kemba Walker to me is a great addition apple doesn't feel from a distance like Kemba Walker will do anything he'll be appreciative play relevant basketball after years of toiling and putting up these numbers and not playing in the postseason like I'll <unk> obviously a great team player and chop my skills but I'll adjust but he has to feel slighted because he did all the heavy lifting for Charlotte and then he was supposed to get that supermax deal and they said I mean he would still we'll be in Charlotte. I think if you didn't get the supermax tag because he made third team all N._B._A.. And because of that Charlotte couldn't afford him yes. mclovin Celtics are all about Kanter is now declaring himself a hall of Famer basically. Did you see that he. He didn't say that he's just he's having a little bit of fun with this like fifty. One liners twitter's all care one line. I like Kanter. I think he's fun. Is He. Good though I never tell well I what what do I get. Thirteen and eight for menas cancer is that it and I get a couple of quotes pre-game but why does he never stay on the team from a couple of months. I guess guys who were thirteen eight or expendable there. I mean he's not an Al Horford territory but he just ah didn't Nina's cancer. Take Kyrie irvings number. I think he said I'll take number eleven. I'll take the number that nobody wants. I'll take number eleven. I'm paraphrasing it here but just cantor okay. Here's Danny Aines trying to sell that is that was the plan Kemba Walker in Genus Kanter. We started planning for planning a our planet was Kimball Walker and his canter and wait wait. Wait wait. Wait wait. Wait wait. Wait wait. Wait okay listen to him say Kemba Walker and then listen to him say genus Kanter and tell me if he is saying it with the same kind of enthusiasm here is Danny age of the Celtics we MM started planning for plan a are planning a was Kimball Walker and his canter and Kemba Walker Innings Kanter. I don't think so haven't Walker wouldn't agree to that. I'm not playing. I don't think I think what happened. Anthony Davis plant a with the capital a for Anthony Davis. We don't want Kevin Durant. We got eight as cantor now yeah. Hey they deal with us man. Do you think that's when you know E._S._p._N.. Gets you ready for a matchup. They'll be Lebron and the Lakers take on his canter and the Celtics next on a two year ten million dollar deal okay. That's better basically veteran earn minimum no but I like that was a plan a no it wasn't it wasn't plan B. or plan C.. Play Danny Age one more time. There is no way he's excited about. He and his canter we started planning gene for planning a our plan was Kimba Walker and his canter so of Kevin durant called. I'm sorry you're not in our plans. If cancer says no I'll call you right back. Quiet Quiet Leonard Look waiting freeness cancer Qui- we're not gonNA commit to you until I know what he and his canter wants to do. Great we have been consumed by these sell by date that you'll find on products the expiration dates on your food and they meet mean slightly different things I growing up in a family of six. If there was a sell by date my mom would have said you know what suck it up and eat it or drink it pauling notice the half and half. We have in the refrigerator here in New York now. We're not here very often. In The New York City Man Cave and Paulie thought well okay. It's in here. How long's it been in the refrigerator can use it? Do we have the official designation nation of sell-by dates in what they mean. According to a few different websites I checked they said the sell by date is not that unhealthy for you. After this it's not at its peak quality of flavor and taste more South Africa and that you may notice that it doesn't taste I up to par but not necessarily dangerous. They said some foods like chicken other meats poultry of chicken poultry <hes> milks creams are the ones that you should be the most careful of what there's a sell by date a best if you use my days and then a used by date yet used by data's a little more definitive and that's used more on poultry okay. I don't know if we solved anything but people around the country are cleaning out the refrigerator. Pictures Seton says he's getting pictures of people gone into the refrigerator and found salad dressing dated back to twenty fourteen as April twenty four because that's the confidence that you don't use or you'll we'll have seven different types of salad dressing right. You have Italian French and whatever else you don't run through them so yeah all the sudden. They're five years old. How long does this Rockford dressing bit in here? Hun Yes Paul. Where do you guys stand and if you open a jar salsa you use half of it? You know sometimes you do. When you want chips? You put it back in your fridge. If it's a month later that Jarrah Salsa still up to par for me IT IS I. I don't get caught up in any of it. I I don't i. I'm just you're the healthiest guy in the room. Yeah I just I just go just open it up and go yeah see that Jarrah Salsa is over as soon as the bag is over soon as I go through that round shit as soon as the bag you crunch it up and then you throw it away. That's when that Jerusalem since <hes> the Vanilla ice project the only home improvement expert on television WHO's won two American music awards a People's Choice Award and been nominated for a grammy. Are we sure that that's factually true chip and Joanna never won a grammy. They were never nominated for that seems unlikely Yeah <hes> but Vanilla ice is back on D._I._Y.. Network every Saturday night and he's tricking out these tired old homes and giving them a high end remix and he's entertaining when he does it next Saturday. It's all Chilean an ice paradise dice until the county inspector shows up with a corrective action required order. There's the drama there's the plot twist the Vanilla Ice Project Nick Saturday night only on D._I._Y.. Network we had David Fatty Fatty. He joined us from Northern Ireland. He's they're covering the tournament for Golf Channel N._B._C. and you know what the conditions are actually nice we were watching this morning and it was rainy and windy and now the sun came out and who knows what is going to be like later on this afternoon but that's the weather that you get over there. That's the hard part when you go golfing in Ireland you have to pack rain gear a sweater and then you have to have a short sleeve shirt as well because chances are you could probably run into all three of those weather conditions. I mentioned yesterday a day playing in Ireland at a country club or golf course called Waterville and it hailed and the the hail the size of not golf balls but like malted milk balls. But they were all over the green when you could see the storm coming and it just pelted us with hail and then we got up played the the the whole sun came out and you never would have known that <hes> you know that was the kind of conditions you you just had like twenty minutes earlier but it's fascinating to play over there and as Tiger Tiger's <hes> like <hes> our in Pauley Yeah. Let me check I got is rory still struggling. I thought he was like plus five or something down. I think plus two Oh okay <hes> man. This is not a good one. I hate to pile on but David Duval plus nineteen. He finished his round with a ninety. I see a lot of nineties on tour but he had did you have a twelve or thirteen on one hole thirteen thirteen on one hole all right so aside from that he was just six over Rory is oh my I thought he was at five over. I got rory with a seventy nine plus eight. Oh my picked him. I Yeah Yeah mclovin by Guy Shane Lowery's leading the board. Who is he again? You didn't even know Shane. Lowery was no. I Really WanNa Trade Rory mcilroy right now. You know what I'm going to hang onto where macaroni I think he's going to turn things around hopefully significantly in front if he doesn't then he misses the cut. I think he'll make the cut. We'll find a way okay all right. Anybody WANNA bet fritzy. Everybody wants to anybody WANNA bed fritzy that Roy mcelroy doesn't make the cut rory's like Nah Rory's not even taking ed participate around to are. We going to get to the point where we're just like these N._B._A.. Teams where if we do these drafts every year these majors where I trade you like my second round pick in the open draft in twenty twenty eighty four future considerations like we re going to get to that point because I'm willing to do that. Who are you going to give up for a protected pick yeah yeah? We'll take a break. Bobbly is overdressed certainly for this show. Show Bob is in the building here and it's great to see him now that he's unemployed. He gets to basically do whatever he wants. Maybe Bob would want to host this. When I go on vacation? That'd be fantastic already said no he just it was that the polly brought that up he goes how about Bob what Bob everyone a hostess. I said I don't think Bob wants to do maybe once a year bob just gets a little bored of Golfing and writing and all the key goals. I don't know but like what if he's he loves soccer during the World Cup he just comes in does a show well. We can ask him but I don't think so. I think Bob is like an athlete. You know where you just you get to the point where you start talking about retirement than you retire. That sounds like a job yeah he doesn't he doesn't want to do any he worked long enough. He went on a sabbatical and then stayed on a sabbatical. That should tell you everything you gotta. Life's pretty good. Yes cares if I if I get him a case a great wine then. Maybe we got a shot here.

Bob Lee the former E._s._p._N.. Outside the line so sportscenter host and and <hes> Eleven Times Sports Emmy winner ounces retirement after forty years of employment there at E._S._p._N.. How surprising was the reaction? When you hear retirement stunning overwhelming the most emotional professional experience I've ever had my family's ever had it's just it's incredible and it's GonNa take me weeks to properly? Try and circle back to the people who have reached out and most people will never meet and you know and if it's it was on twitter it's tough to get your arms around that but the twitter and d._M.'s facebook and facebook messages and handwritten notes the lost. It's just it has been it's been insanely gratifying it <hes> at the same time you kind of ratify right decision right time reasons mostly personal and time to go but it's been insane. It's been wild but you go on a sabbatical yeah and what did you find on that sabbatical where you testing retirement kind of little test drive company when he was great. I can't say enough of how patient they were. How understanding the were and when I left it was prod needles probably in the middle and some days and needle would move one way and so as the needle would move the other way and you know when you're sitting in south Florida <hes> and it's you know minus fifteen up here? It's easier to think about long showed yeah but didn't miss the grinded and the grinds one of the reasons you want to step back but you know as you well know the toughest part of making a decision about step back people people I mean you spend more time with these jokes right than you do with your family right and true and they become close friends in the same is true when you're putting the daily show together from seven A._M.. To Three P._M.. Every day and an email incessantly and these people are and people you know <hes> I just spent some time today with Robin Roberts Charley Steiner and Chris Chris Yeah we had after Good Morning America and you know so much non verbal you just you experienced that as a group and to not have that available every day. That that's the difficult part but you know what all my retired friends said. You'll wonder if you had time to work how you have the time and after three weeks I'll tell you it's it's true calendars full I squished in. How do you replace it? Though <hes> <hes> trying to stuff for people to keep busy with my Alma Mater Seton Hall Charlie and I were trading dueling concert stories he thought that Ringo with McCartney was gonNA trump springsteen coming out with southside johnny now I just using all little steven the other night so but shows reading books sleep taking better care yourself. You'd be surprised I mean you know it's like yeah business. Well I tell the story to these guys I would drink four twenty ounce bottles of coke every night you and boomer together the other Canon business yes but I I wanted to be energetic. At the end of nominee jobs you have to be your best at the end of a day and it would be eleven o'clock and I'd be wired because I wanted to be energetic. When you go then I'd go home and I drink three or four beers go to bed and then repeat not a good cycle? No it was and we had no cafeteria there for how many years it opened on the Twenty Fifth Anniversary Nineteen or twenty ninety nine and you know a million the machines and you know <hes> with machines and the sandwich lady downstairs the infamous up but now now it's as you've been on campus and I work the other end of the day but like breakfast was eating a Bagel and try to drink tea with one arm near your hands. You're listening to the radio coming in or on the phone and quarter to six in the morning when you know when you hit the road and it's a lot but look we got the best jobs in the world or you have one. I had one of them. They are the best jobs in the world. We don't have problems in the guys that are working outside and this rain they got shoes. That's tough but if you were just starting would e._S._p._N.. Be The place you would wanna be. Would they hire me probably not I was twenty four with that. You didn't have much experience. I had three years in local cable. I could relocate locate quickly. I made them wait eighteen hours for a decision to job offers on consecutive days Scotties Walk Scotty Connell Walk into the office two weeks to the day before sound late August seventy nine essentially offering me the job he kind of bring them up short short. I said Mr Connell. I'm going to have to get back to you. Have another job interview tomorrow and I did in Newark New Jersey public television. They offered me the number two sports job so I had I had eighteen hours. Make up my mind that seventy-nine e._S._p._N.'s not on the air this other job would put me on the air weekends as a sports anchor at twenty four years of Age New York and Philly and reporting three days a week. That's a tough call. In nineteen seventy nine and money was identical and one thing you learn eventually. You don't do things for money in life. It's tough to say that all the time and so I made them wait but I had just come out of a situation where we built this local cable operation from nothing literally blueprints and you could design your job and here's another chance to do it and at what point did you go. Oh or did you go. I made a mistake going to E._S._P._N.. No I don't think I I mean you know there'd be those days my first day I walked in at ten A._M.. And I walked out at two A._M.. True story absolutely true story and I get back to the holiday in new Britain and and I say and I say to myself Gee. I wonder if I get my old job back the next morning when I pull my head off the pillow but no so it wasn't like playing for the New York Titans checks always clear you'd have to run to the bank. There was a period in the early eighties when the room is you know Ted. Turner was circling and we were not profitable for a number of years and until A._B._C. came in. I remember the seismic jolt of energy that went through the company. I think it was eighty four A._B._C. exercise their option and assumed majority control which meant we we had stable ownership that believe in the place and when I got there so I got there in one thousand nine hundred nine and this was the famous Charlotte Observer Line from Chris Berman because I was there to observe uh-huh so our boss John Wall said you know I want you to observe for three months and I just read once I blue helmet is the Golan Heights. I went to I I came from C._N._N.. That had the same format add has sportscenter and so Chris Berman every time he'd see me to go the Charlotte Observer and it got to the point where I said just put me on the air. Just let me go and Berman just got through with the eleven o'clock and I was going I do. I believe that the one o'clock at the time and he said I'm GonNa stay into your first show with you. They boot somebody off the shore yes bigfoot and he said I'm going to do it good and so there were two moments that one with with Chris and when I sent you a letter when I was in Dayton Ohio and you had no idea who I was and I sent a letter to you and Greg Gumbel and I just said look look at this tape and tell me if you see anything because I I just lost the weekend job at Channel Two. I didn't get the job I'd lost. It and I thought you know what I I can work at sportscenter like that's the place I want to be and I go. I'm going to send you a letter and I sent this letter and all of a sudden I get a letter back. I tried to find it. I would love to see I have a vague recollection. Road a a full letter to me. I had matters in those you type on a typewriter. You had a full letter to me saying you're not ready now but Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah and let you know stay in touch kind of thing now and I I was walking on the moon. It really helped me stay in in the business. You know an idea of wanting to continue to because I was going to get I gave up hope and I was just going to go. You know what <hes> let me see if somebody sees something in me because I couldn't get a job in local sports so of course in my mind I can get a job at E._S._p._N.. I can't work at channel to Dayton Ohio. I mean again. They hired me twenty. Four three years of experience in local cable doubled my salary to the princely sum of twenty five thousand dollars dollars a year. I was walking on air rich but at and and do whatever you want to do I mean I remember sitting across the Desk Chet Simmons. who was the president he was the first President Scotty Connell was the first executive vice president and check gave you know here's the guy who was is the president of N._B._C.? Sports gave that up to come aboard here with Getty is the honor at e._s._p._N.. And said you know talk to sports fans the way they want to be talked to. We hired you for your opinions. I here's a titan in the industry me who I think that visit I had to borrow my girlfriend's maverick with a stick shift to get up there because my my car's in the shop I can you know if the bail it out to move they hired me for what you think and but they turned US loose and I don't WanNa say left us. Eh left us alone but they trusted us and they trusted a lot of young people in the beginning and if they hadn't done that I don't know that you know looking back at the fiscal issues in the early eighty one eighty two we might not have made it out of the woods but we did ed and the other thing. Was You know here I am I send you a letter and then I don't know how many years later was but I'm sitting next to you anchoring the eleven o'clock sportscenter and when I get there we're we're knee deep and Pete rose investigation and I had a local source who was a bookie who was taking the off bets from Pete's regular bookie so we attack that as well as anybody I think in the business hovering that and I was extremely proud of that but I was trying trying to keep up with you in it made me a better journalist because I was trying. I knew who you were in. What you did and how you did it? I was just I didn't want to be a highlight guy. I wanted to be a guy who could do highlights but also could do investigative investigative reporting and I've ever when we attacked it. I was proud. That's probably the proudest thing that I've ever been involved with at E._S._p._N.. Was the way we approached. The Pete Rose Situat- you had your sources. I remember talking to a guy who had been in a car overhearing. Overhearing Pete Making the bets we got him on camera. There was no objective doubt we all knew well before. Bart Giamatti brought the hammered now that that Pete had lied but yeah that that was that was insane. What was your best day at E._S._P._N.? The best show best show most meaningful. I duNno every year I WANNA say this respectfully every year Trey Wingo and trade notes on September eleventh. I mean here we are how far from now very very far right blocks and we in the office that day <hes> the I went home and got my kids out of ski I don't blame you and barbed at the same with our girls and <hes> the debate in the new. I was on the phone with Norby Williamson. Who's you know major executive still there at the time the second tower fell? I was scheduled to be off you watching this. Oh my God I just said I'll the question I was needing in there that the image answered the question. I'll be an hour later in there and the raging debate that day was what do we do. Do we do anything and at the time we were simulcasting A._B._C.. News and you're in shock the loss sweet you know we didn't know anything and eventually this very educated but emotional debate yielded. We're going to do an hour show that night and trey and I fell to us to write it and actually if you go down to the nine eleven museum special exhibited still playing you walk in there you see yourself it's tough but it's a mind and we try to keep proper perspective the proper relevance and respect for that but that day and that week we tried to each day we went on with hours and hours of coverage. How sports was reacting to something that we've never seen before no and so your best not a most meaningful can also be your worst day too because of the gravity of what you're doing? Yeah I mean I I look back. When when Tom Mees died and I remember going to work and win? Jim Vivanco passed away and I just I avoided Jim Valvano Yeah because my dad died of cancer and I told him the last day he was there before he was done with the basketball season. I said Jim I want to apologize and I said I purposely stayed away from you and you know how gregarious and he's like what you know. What's wrong with that? I said because I didn't. I didn't want to get to know you more than you're not here anymore. And then I told him about my dad in the first thing he said is how long was he told the had to live and I said six months. Because how long did he live. I said six months and he was crestfallen and he said we do me a favor. When I die put a great picture over your shoulder because you know how you always have that picture over shoulder when you're doing a story on somebody and said make sure it's a great picture of me and it stayed with me so in the moment you're trying not to cry but it was one of the I'm glad we did it the right way and when the Indians relievers the pitchers died in spring training and we had to go all in right now and we had to go on that and I like those so the moments that stand out because you're not known for those things you're known for doing highlights and that's where you WanNa go? You know what I want to be a professional the greatest communal moment working at e._s._p._N.. Would have been the joins US October Seventeenth Nineteen nineteen eighty nine the world series earthquake. I was five rows from the top of candlestick Park and and people ask me how long did it last in the answer is long enough to start a hail. Mary not long enough to finish it because you're you're standing on concrete and it was like standing on a waterbed and so but it stopped Joe Torry sitting next to me he was doing analysis and it within within less than twenty minutes our crew had us on the air. We had to get out around the stadium at the center field and that nobody nobody could communicate. Nobody had personal cellphones back in those days it was nineteen eighty-nine and so everybody just instinctively knew with their work ethic and their commitment to a common mission what we had to do and attack turned on a dime Joseph Gimme a crew will go out and get some sound for you. Everybody just pitched in and for two hours we were the only television out of a national catastrophe. I thought it was as good a work as you've ever done and Al Michaels you know. He knew exactly what was happening thing. He you know you you see the bridge. I keep telling you landmarks what's going on in the moment so you had his expertise in a bird's eye view and then you and Joe Torry out in center field reacting to this with the players there on the field. They're hugging their wives. They weren't sure exactly what was happening was going to be a game. I mean we're on the air during an aftershock and we still camera on top of the San Francisco Forty niners scouting booth so you know anything about optics you've got a zoom lens and it magnifies the footage and they're picking the basis up at that moment as an aftershock hits so if there was any question we're gonNA play baseball. Those images again answered the story. We have a presentation for you spent a little bit of time <music>.

Now you know you think about it now and think about it a lot when Bob announced that he was retiring from E._S._p._N.. But just go back that was whatever year was in the early eighties and I'm out of a job not working in sports but I think I I can do it and I sent a letter to Bob Lee who is on the air on sportscenter and it could have easily just not answered but he sent a full page letter critiquing I rented out a camera and had somebody recorded for me and I did five minutes of just add living sports and because I wanted to prove that I knew it not reading off a teleprompter but I couldn't afford a teleprompter such why at lifted and Bob got back to me and said you're not ready now which I wasn't but he said a lot you know it seems like you know your stuff and hopefully get a job locally and then you'll be able to maybe apply here. You know something like that but I was just I appreciate it that it was nice that he did that. All right this team Sports History Apple 1927 ty COBB's majorly record by getting his four thousand th career hits forty one ninety one before he retired in nineteen twenty one nineteen sixty four pete rose of the reds hit his only Grand Slam of his career never had one again and then this week in sports history twenty years ago this week John Vanderbilt Open Championship.

Mornings with Keyshawn, LZ and Travis (HR 4)

"Post man gotTA problems over there. Life is good. It is good it is good is correct correct sir ready for some football. Yes Ramsgate to Bona Fun. Tonight is going to be interesting and Sunday. Sunday will be even better. You really going to tailgate for three or four hours yeah well. It's not really it's not a it's not a outdoor tailgate. It's a fancy deal uh-huh at USC for me the one that used to be right next to the statues right near but it's the Baugh. That's a it's a it's a it's a bar sports board as Jason connected connected to the L. AFC staying. I know in its I forgot the name play I replay replay replay so it's basically turns into a huge sports spore in a private room in the whole deal of stairs and so formed four sounds fun yeah leashes out in the sun and you sit down and you're not smelling like charcoal Michael lighter fluid right. You know what I'm saying. It's clean a sportsburry type deal you know little tailgate and then the game starts kickoff offers a six yeah it and he's going to be up twenty one nothing by half ooh set a prediction fiction and then I woke up. Hey you know what else we tailgate for. Though eight hundred eighty eight keys doppler sixty six degrees cloudy high of seventy nine today in Pico Rivera California it is a national butterscotch pudding day. Butterscotch is a general rule hard on ice cream. I'm hard pass. Don't like it at all is there's too much of Mike. The Candy Candy little hard candies so gross yeah. Those are nasty headline headline presented by sprint headline precisely yeah. That's everybody stepping on. There was re Chris. He's headline presented by sprint. Thank you Google doodle do so. I don't know how take this. I don't know if it's just him talking to whatever I'm GONNA take it for real because it sells for real so Dennis Rodman claims that Madonna offered him twenty million dollars dollars to knock her up to have a baby when he was dating her twenty million bucks so he told the breakfast club this morning in an interview that ah or he told them not necessarily more told him that Madonna decided that she wanted to approach him so bad that she offering twenty million dollars to father a child with her now. Is that believable no because Dennis I would've done it for free. It doesn't seem like it though I know it look up all right. Can I be really insensitive for. I don't go ahead. I don't think it would have been that hard to trick Dennis Rodman into getting pregnant. Why would you offer twenty million but this was this was this was in his early stages? I even even more so that that Dennis too so. Let's just assume that she did offering twenty okay. What would it take you less than twenty two This is peak exactly free Madonna Madonna but someone would it take you less than twenty. Should I be paying hernia yeah. I was GONNA say this feels like it's my need to get a little more. If she offered twenty we probably get it to twenty three negotiate thirty the third twins takes this. This was the period where she obviously wanted to have a the kid but for some reason she wanted to have a child with someone that was chocolate or of variety so he ended up getting pregnant by the backup dancer named Carlos Leon that Laura's as her first child's father is like a I think he's he's not counting as you start adopting kids from around the world and stuff like that well. Let's just did he would say that it's can't be done because very simply caller twenty what's in it for Madonna that cost twenty million dollars Dennis. Would you've done it for nothing and now in your they well. I've heard I've heard some of the stories about Madonna that it it is somewhat you know I would find kind of interesting because you know interesting because I heard that she has some propositions for some people that I no no and they was in a friendship whatever and she proposition them to do stuff but it wasn't. It wasn't necessarily having a baby. It was just other things S.'s Oh also for show here for sure I wanna she offered to travel getting twenty nine by not even get you might get a free ride. Jack Five is something that's about the extent offer park. Dennis is good for twenty bucks for twenty five. They were looking at Dennis through the land twenty plus years right so Dennis in the moment was a big a big deal. That's what she making a big ditch head. She absolutely tizzy to the next level but Dennis was famous than the crossover level. A dentist dentists now is kind of sad and there's there's an element of and look at that. That's what I'm saying but in the moment Dennis was a big big deal yeah and she wanted to Madonna was big but when you do the power couple Lapthorne laboratory and make it big but the twenty million dollars is what made me fascinating. I'm not Bosna. She had Warren Beatty Park Sean. Penn Shingai Shingai Pay Dennis Rodman Twenty Million Dollars Daddy Kane. I don't know if she had this year. He was one of the books. Take pictures remember her. I do remember book yeah he was in a and that was one of the ones that are people are like Oh and none of them not to close the way they needed to know. She got a backup Azad Chris. No I'm just saying none of them had good good genes genes and not like and I'm talking about mentally closed the deal to the point where they married her. They've had but not to any of these guys know. Pox No Rodman's none of those canes marriage. She ended origine. She had Guy Richie. WHO's a great director? Guy Ritchie do movies right still doing things kind of fell off after Madonna. Donald was was just like I'm done with you. I guess how much I don't know man You're listening to K in Los Angeles I for free the answer to this may be it already happened but but Tennessee at Jacksonville tonight if Jacksonville loses their season's over right and like I said the answer may have already been it already is because Nick foles broke his collarbone but ooh though he has he has but Owen three in division that has a good Houston team and a pretty good Indianapolis team and Tennessee team that is not lousy. If you start on three that's probably a rap right. I would think so yeah because you're now individual Houston and Andy and Tennessee Tennessee has two wins if they beat you tonight India's Indie in these twenty one and one but they are being they've been playing pretty decent football so you're probably in a little bit of trouble in terms of trying to come back and bounce back. AFC and when you start to look at the AFC west with the chargers and Kansas Kansas City New England then you got maybe buffalo and I know you're not buying it but math says they got a shot. I may be a buffalo so depends on what happens in more including Baltimore and Cleveland in you got whatever it is with Houston in India so you're probably on the outside looking in Dan. If you're Jacksonville going getting ready to trade your top defensive player feels Lardner Mint you too could be. We say it all the time. It's not Kurt Warner but maybe I mean we'll see but gardiner minhsiu is putting stuff on tape for thirty one other teams no they gave Nick foles a whole bunch of money nick foles when he's healthy is probably going to get that job back but Gardiner Menchu if he goes out there and wins. Let's say Nick Foles Mrs another five or six games and Gardner into wins two or three. He's going to get a GIG somewhere well. He's not going to get a GIG right now because he's tobacco right so it'll take him a couple of years. He's got he's got to be like what was to do from Cincinnati that was at Alabama. Oh McCarron Macaire like a Macaire mccaron feel for Andy Dalton a couple of games and he showed flashes of really good football to the point where Cleveland went out and tried to trade for him but Cleveland did screwed up with the fax machine or something and he got messed up and now you can't even find Cairns. He's looking for job he's on TV but you could a hit if he would hit right then and that's commits us is that he's got to be able to Kinda withstand the full steam for a couple of years getting a game or to play good in the preseason and all of a sudden he hits now. He's somebody else's quarterback in. That's what happens with guys like that really Jalen Ramsey tonight he let let's just assume that the deal does not get done and they don't move him but if let's he's. I hope I'm not Brando I I'm not planning. I'm not Jalen. 'cause you're trading me. What do I look like blue? You're getting ready to trade me. I'm not going to go out there and risk my health in hurt myself in my value to get contracts. Something and I'm so desperately desire for need I need. I need it. I want it. This is why we position now because you didn't offer me extension even know you picked up my fifth year option. Why would I go out there and play and you getting ready to move? He City city wants to move him. He says will play I get I I understand that in our probably was still play too. But why would I wanNA play a few moving me even though I'm a still go out there and do it because I'm here in is GonNa look like up quitting on everybody because it may take time to move me so what's the what's the status of you moving. That'd be far more motivated as a management person in Jacksonville to not then as the player himself if I'm if I'm whoever the person Tom Coughlin. Tom Coughlin is ultimately the one that's making this call. I'm saying did go her. No home go home. We're GONNA find a deal for you but what I'm not letting happened is for you to go out there and break your Frankel. I'm not letting you go out there and get concussion. I'm not doing something that is going to prevent you from or prevent me from executing deal even if Jalen Ramsey said no. I WANNA go. I'm saying I don't care stay home. How about going out there and not being very good yeah but even if you had a dog of a game player torched by Kansas City and people aren't aren't true but people were like on the week before he played Hopkins and he did fairly well below his normal numbers so don't want to have happen happened one obviously get hurt but I think to his lawyer trade value by not looking very good? I hardly care about the CIA is he cares about the trade value. He got a little to do with me. They do not WanNa ask you for. y'All shipped me out for five. I could care less. I do have a question for you. Keyshawn our friend you know Gardner Men's shoe who has some really interesting stuff in his he does very very interesting. I don't read Licnen but go ahead here. Let me is this about his stretching routine. Would you just read that. What will tell me because I don't think so I read it and I had to go check other sources and insurance? It's legit this is the real thing is he likes to stretch and a case in occasionally he'll and occasionally he'll where jockstrap right but apparently according to Ian rapoport stretching next to me and my locker the report before his start in week two. He was caught in his ducks stretching. If you stretch any adjustment at this okay you got a towel wrapped in just your juxtapose not a towel not a T. shirt. Just a jockstrap usually means is he in front of his locker the business then. I don't think anybody will have a problem with it at all in the locker so you would be good if say to lockers over. He's just been in over Guinness. Hamstrings stretched out but he's not. It's not like that though ill in the locker room dog it's not is is is he's probably stretching on the floor in front of his locker with his back to to his locker is back to his locker. Back is not to the audience. They don't have the details in here man. I gotta get Outta here in the show of the people returns with more morning wakeup fun next on the morning show forty seven years ago. Gal Mash debuted really worth showing off this late at night on. KTLA is horrible. I like some of the episodes but some of them Roger Try. I think I will watch. I Love Lucy overdose Rajini on lockstep in this. I Love Lucy Awful Mash awful awful two of the most iconic I get. It and I know that I'm in the minority here but the land driving it was hot lips hut. What no I'm just saying it's been awhile since my token right? It wasn't even the theme just depressing pressing sounding and try well. It's called suicide is painless so yeah that's funny because that's the name of the song the song speaking of massive TV or is that still the biggest television audience ever Seinfeld might have come until I don't know auto buying watch Seinfeld was funny watching fails to one hundred ninety s jokes would jokes aside feels like the stuff that L Z and Michelle beedle took me to the comedy store on you didn't it out. They couldn't crack laugh if I wanted to do came and tickle me with feathers on my feet under the laughed the truth be told the funniest thing he was watching keyshawn trying to sneak out of the comedy club called Alexander Right Yeah. He caught a bow. He'd six tip is a comedy club. Your six the Ford Black Guy in a comedy club with a whole lot of users as you're going to sneak out of this comedy Teo we all light like the only difference is I'm pretty one hundred and six million people watched the match how many one hundred six million oh my goodness nineteen eighty-three on CBS the debut valley so what happened in the finale helicopter flew away and there was a rocks spilled out goodbye to bring it back to watch ah Korean War caught a smash they bring it back somebody Madison some of these brilliant executives. You know how we should do yeah we we should take everything else off at that hour and put new lashawn hot lamps. Yeah we'LL HAVE CARDI B. Who will make make sure Cardi B.'s? That's how it goes some more Crossover Appeal Zakia fraud. Dan Types that they know what they doing Antonio Brown from Nike a quote from last night quote Antonio Brown is not in Nike Athlete probably not a huge surprise there that Antonio Brown while a great football player is probably not somebody want representing your product. He's he's radioactive took over that yeah right run a numbers. They weren't gonna run them numbers eight. That's one thing I can say about Nike. is they tend to respond very positive in terms of you know getting rid of of the bad when it starts to happen with the athletes retire one of the few there but let me ask you this question. Oh yeah you're did tiger was tiger ever accused allegedly of raping anybody no okay but it's to put that doesn't Ernest did he. Did he bamboozle people into believing that he was something that he wasn't yes yes yes. I think he did yes of course one hundred percent. I S you're off. You thought he was squeaky clean. I tell you got a lot of those endorsement. That's your fault if you thought he was squeaky clean to the point of no return that's your fault unlike Lance Armstrong lamps last Armstrong was doping doping in doing all and he used the the the bands in the cancer. He lives strong. He used that to prop himself up even though he was doing other stuff to make himself successful in racing tiger woods no tiger woods was cheating in G. I don't care about what they meant does sued his wife and I ain't got none of them but that's not my business. I don't disagree with that part of it but tigers image was more than just a great golfer the image that he was selling was something nothing more than just hey. I'm the Best Golfer to ever played the sport. It's a I'm a trustworthy guy. I am a family guy. I'm a guy that is safe for lack of a better word and you can drop him because he because you assume that he was a family guy. He never said he never came out publicly. Say I'm a family guy. I don't Komo that Navy not the part about his wife but he embraced the whole family aspect of his image very aggressively he I I would say again I would say the campaigns might have said that but he's signing off on the campaign who angels campaigns when he writing your channel I get that but then when they decided to the situation is such that he is doing things to hurt others. I completely agree with that. The Tigers deal was he's Tigers Tiger's a bad husband and father arguably okay because of what he did to the mother of his kids and his wife Antonio Brown's potential criminal. There's a big difference between those two things thinks that Antonio Brown's allegations against him a while. They're a civil matter or crimes raping. Somebody is a crime. Being a philandering husband is not a crime. It's makes you a bad husband and there's something to suggest you look at the timing of it. All the accusers spent ten ten hours with the NFL the obviously if you're a big powerbroker like Nike you got your sources I wonder if Nike nightly merged so league got the Jersey. I'm wonder if they got something information within ten hours a day. Just said you know what so. Somebody in the League office picked up and said Hey guys I see you may want to get out of here. This key says so in a worse to was to deal and they from a legal standpoint they probably had to go through some legal stuff with their with their legal team and Nike defined. Our Legal Counsel had the tail them. Hey here's here's out in the clause in the contract. Blah Blah Blah it. You just can't just do it overnight and there's also this element that we reported last night. Which is the reason why he wasn't being prosecuted? Criminally at least in Pennsylvania is because the statute of limitations occurs though not because they didn't think there was any information he was the statute of limitation on wasn't a chart it wasn't so maybe Nike Nike saw that and he thought you know what was only two years. I thought statue limitation whereas much longer than that I guess state to state is different. Maybe Different Yeah No. They're different. Those yeah I mean can Antonio Brown EIB has had such long range of great last month fish nights nine hundred just last month last month. It's obviously accelerated to where we are right now but tiger woods is back. Tiger Woods does commercials again tiger woods reps big companies again because and by the let's be honest about Tiger Woods and we won the masters last year but leading up to that tiger really never regained his position as one the best players in the game now just enough time went by and we kind of remembered we liked that guy. He's fun to watch. He got his position back. AB feels and obviously Abyan Tiger uh never reached the same heights but it feels like ABC's the stench that's on a B. is not going away. No matter how many questions coach let me ashes question our own beloved Kobe Bryant went through similar situation right and he's so shoes forever are are still won championships steal steal. It never kind of went away after they start winning again. I mean he kind of changed. His appearance Tattoos Coby coby is a good example. The the difference there is is that Kobe would Kobe had and then really nothing else here. I'll give you one more one and done. ABC had a series the thing is on dancing with the stars as we speak and shortly after getting out of jail vitamin water auto commercial remember that Yeah Ray Ray didn't pull her off. No he didn't do it. He was he was charged for obstruction. Instructing instructing of justice opposed to actually physically so instead of me at work so steady kings of putting in work you just yes obstructed justice to find out the work well. That's I'm just telling you I'm giving you from my legal hat. I'm giving you my legal. Keyshawn Johnson esquire he just wouldn't work didn't get charged for putting in work. That was somebody else you got charged with obstructing of finding anyhow who did put in the work well. Where's the waste going to say it's gone? The suit has gone yeah see unlike going into deeper step. OJ Simpson different situation. I don't know what's going on with America. It's it's let's let's talk about the rams. Let's talk about taught Sunday football. I'm just saying we're from Ray Lewis Jay talking about the rams. Do the rams have fifty three minutes rams and good guys. We like the Rams Cooper Kupa Cup Cooper got bigger. Coach's son lives in the film room all of them we they are Cleveland Defense Cleveland offense which is a bigger concern for the rams. I would say Cleveland's I would probably we say would be Cleveland's. Defense is a bigger concern for the rams to me and the reason is is because I think coach Wilkes is a really good difference a coach. He has great skill positions on on the outside with greedy Williams and Dinsdale war miles gear coming off the edge. you know so when you start to look at the youth that they have back there on the defensive side had a ball if they could put a scheme together to slow them down if they're going to win. This football game is going to be because the defense did something to the rams offense to negate them from scoring points point going back to the super bowl year. Go I know you guys don't WanNa talk about that because it's something that isn't great bad memories in your P- repulsed at halftime through my in Santa postgame. Show wasn't a lot fun in in terms of that you go back. If you're Steve Wilks in you watch what the New England Patriots did to them and you take some of the things that Carolina airliner was able to do the deal and some of the things that the saints were able to do them and you put all that together to build your game plan. I know you said a year ago yeah year ago because the offense rams is not I changing. It's staying the same I mean it's going to be the same offense got up to a couple wrinkles wrinkles here Cooper Cup you know guy who alluded like eighteen eighteen thousand people to score touchdowns girly healthier Todd Gurley but but she still was slowly down what what was the problem the centers not the same name they beat the senator to death. He's not the same anymore so new center for the rams now so you look at that if you St Wilkes and you'd be able to say okay what are they struggle that we like to play man and male are to shutdown down corners. Let's get up in their face this jam at the line of scrimmage this rerunnable. Let's let G let's make Jared Goff hold a ball a little bit longer than what he's used to doing and let's see if we can get in our defensive linemen the myles Garrett and in what's Sheldon Sheldon Richardson. Let's see if those guys can get to jared Goff it so much attention in his paid to Baker Mayfield and Adele and the offense the headband Freddie Kitchens was a quarterback. He's an offensive minded coach and Cleveland's finally got it figured out because because of the offense right that's been the narrative going through the preseason and the early part of the season having watched Cleveland. I two games. I haven't seen anything from that offense. It makes me go. Oh Damn look out like watch the rams. If you watch the Patriots you watch some of you watch Lamar Jackson in the Ravens early. Watch the cowboys the saints men men we we'd better get ready because these guys are gonna come in and do work. I watched the browns and they're gonNA. They're gonNA give you a punch. They're going to have like you said earlier today. Key that even the jets who's defense is okay but they were missing some guys they have to really big plays but other than that there was nothing about that Cleveland offense that looked particularly Baker Mayfield through high high hi I mean Odell may wonder too good catches. That almost got in kill. He actually got the got. The one do has to have wrist surgery because he went up to try to get the ball in joke who tried to climb the ladder. Try to climb the ladder to get the ball fell down on his neck back in an came out of it with a wrist injury because he was attempting to make Baker Mayfield look good on a high ball. He sailed several balls over receivers heads. He threw who several balls that should have been intercepted. One or two of them was intercepted so when you start to look at those sorts of things the office does nothing if I'm if I'm way Phillips I'm Aaron Donald Those guys I'm yeah I'm going to respect my opponent but at the same time also noted that ain't really nothing over there. The defense is a concern for the Cleveland browns even though they got blowed out but Tennessee titans they didn't give it three hundred yards and year didn't give up one hundred yards to to Henry on the ground when you look at the two games combined. I know the play the jets and you know like needs come with an asterix nonetheless. You're looking at top ten defense Cleveland's right there despite the blowout which means means whatever they gave up wasn't so agree GIS and they corrected it and was helped obviously by the injury or the sickness to Sam Darnold that brought the numbers down. I do believe either defense and Myles Garrett in particular because of how he's getting the sex worries me but if they're able to protect jared goff the should not be your prominent with us blowing by twenty points but if that doesn't happen is because that Cleveland Defense that we thought was going to be good actually is good Happy Birthday Pia Mia. This is MIMI PIA MIA yeah. Where do we know this PIA MIA from? I don't know disarm are on the the birthday pages one of those reality TV show winners or something how she's Kwamena shots different than he wants to see what she looks like what I'm just fine Sir let me turn this around Komo he'd be birthday to Y- pm via PIA PIA MIA Rien que change your voice.

I'm cool that WHO didn't I celebrated properly yesterday by the way national cheeseburger day really yeah me to kgo eight now. Where'd you go stillwater in Dana Point nine? PM Birthday only three years old. That's where we went elsie. I went to shacks no you and I went to you and I went there per Pia Mia Happy Birthday Pia Mia now you said don't worry about it but you know what you need to you. Worry about that money. That's why guys it's time for. NFL picks against red and you know how we do it. We not only gains but against the spread right and we apply a confidence point to it. That's right four being your most confident one not that sure about it and so far to everyone surprise across America L L Z granderson is doing well. Yes eighteen points the second with fifteen points and Kisha well. At least you WanNa game game last week. He has count well. Let's start with that. You mentioned Kansas City. Let's start there and the game of the week. The two zero Ravens traveled Casey to take on the chiefs and the chiefs are favored by six and a half points keyshawn. Who Do you got you gotta finish talking before I can go Ravens giving more time to try and get a game right? I'm GonNa like I said you gotTa Stop Talking Ravens at at-home yeah no they're going to chiefs ooh. ooh I changed Monte cousin okay. We'll look here's what I'm GONNA say. Ravens got their first first big tests on the road against the cassie cheese. Kansas City is trying to retool their defense. They're facing a red hot. I mean red hot hot Tamale Lamar the more Jackson he's coming in there having thrown for several hundred yards consecutive games but so has Patrick Mahomes yeah but on the flip side. There's a much better defensive is it mahomes is facing versus the Mark Jackson six and a half point favorite at home against the Ravens. I'm going to go ahead and stick with the chiefs on this one. I'm making my one all right those either grandy man the current champion who are like can we stop and I can just be you know this is a toss up because I'm trying to figure out if Lamar Jackson is real or not and it's hard to figure out against bad teams right. We know the patch mahomes is good against bad teams. Good teams great teams. Take Your Team Mama. Seeing the team has been put together so I'm gonNA stick with that. I'M GONNA make that my three though I won't be surprised if I were to miss one this would be either one all right. I'M GONNA make a clean sweep. I'm GonNa take the chiefs as well but I I'm putting them at the four I mean I think this is an easy one. I ran we look look at what are we talking about Miami and Arizona the two points for more Jackson. I'm either going to be really right about this a really wrong. Come Monday morning. Lamar Jackson. I think is a nice player but I'm not ready to go all in on him and I am whatever whatever beyond all in is. That's what I am with Patrick Mahomes hope for the kickers. If you want you can do whatever he you want but I'm GonNa Take Kansas City and I'm GonNa put them all the way at the top number four wow okay all right next game the oh into dolphins. I think we'll have a habit of saying Owen against the cowboys now. This game is in Dallas point spread like we've never seen before in the NFL two games plus twenty but we'll take one of them the cowboys it's our favorite by twenty one and a half point. Where are you going on this game? It's not twenty one and a half that the number that I care about the number that I care about is one hundred to ten dolphins have been outscored in their two games a hundred into ten. They can't stop anybody and they can't score. That's a very very bad one and a half I think is probably a little older like the cowboys and I'll put him in three those Demon twenty one and a half is a lot of points and it's a lot of points with an offense that can be explosive but goes through laws of non explosiveness the unexposed whatever you WANNA call it three announces whatever done I'm going to pick the cowboys to steal cover but I am so confident. That's my one all right keyshawn well twenty one and a half is the other gentleman said Yeah. We're GONNA repeat that again is a lot of points for the third time yes Are you doing drew but the cowboys tend to not take care of business the way that they should against teams that are like the dolphins they like form the hang around. I'll play with him. Do all of those sorts of things in in Fizi you know he gives you one or two good gains. A year where everybody started to say. This is the reason he should be the star and I think this is one of those games where Ernie and people will say he's just see should be the starter although they will not beat the cowboys. The cowboys got too much going on and twenty one and a half points too much to be favored by. I'm GonNa take the dolphins on this. One and I'M GONNA make it my three okay found. Let's go to Dr Raiders. The one in one readers versus versus the one in one Vikings Ski. I was very high Nevada's last week. They lost the Vikings at home favourite by eight and a half show where you're going to take the vikings. I'm GonNa take the Vikings on this one. I think the raiders got all they can get out of what they did last week against Kansas City when it was up ten oh and we were all saying Oh my God. This is different raider team. I think that's a different situation. Nation of AIKINS KIRK cousins bounceback gets it together gets a better completion percentage Gore for himself where people can get off his back down and cook runs the ball extremely well defense plays he's better against the raiders and they favored by eight and a half and they'll cover cover by even more than that. I'll make this my to all right L. E. I'm going with the Vikings at home. I just don't do the raiders are very good. the got there the win win. Now we go back to rescue her bruckner program schedule Israel scheduled program to the Vikings all right. I'm GONNA take the raiders Alanon put them in the one spot because one I like the eight and a half points. That's a lot of points in the NFL. I'll take AAC dat. It's more I think Minnesota wins the game but I think that I might be the only person in this room. That's actually watched kirk cousins these first two weeks north route ten passes the first first week and he was under fifty percent in the second week. I know the raiders aren't a great team but I also don't think the raiders stink like they have previously so. I'll take the raiders and I like it so much at the one okay so a funky but you don't stain finally the two zero rams who are at the number one spot in keyshawn Powell the first time ever they take on a one and one browns in Cleveland. The Rams are favored by three and a half points travel is a tricky little point spread there where you're going. I'm gonNA take the rams. I'm gonNA take the rams. I'm Schol keys lead here. A key is talked me into the fact that this not only is a game that the rams are GonNa win but they're going to win it comfortably. I'm going to take the rams to put him at two L Z you have the rams that four tell us why because the ramle so you think they'll cover the three and a half. I think they're going beat the snot out of them okay so yes there are covered a three and a half or keyshawn the rams three and a half point favorites against the browns and what does Vegas no right. I mean three hundred tells a pretty big three three and a half against the browns. I've never seen a rams team. Play a team like the browns or anybody like the dolphins or anything and beat them about three and a half points with a high powered offense the rams like to do what they like to score points and they're gonNA score or bunch of points because the browns defense is not as good as advertised so I'm GonNa make the Rams my four and I believe in my heart art. The Rams beat them by lease twenty-one Woo going dolphins on us the morning show back. This is what I'm talking about so rosh does it qualify is breaking news is is that where you're seeing it no not breaking. Somebody's going to waste the button but it still record news news. What is the official report say well this is from our friend Chuck over Bristol Crystal Salvatore? He's Menchu stretching speak no zoo. La Ad Dan Grill will retire at the end of the academic year a year he was fired. He's been there since two thousand two so so Dan Guerrero is a former. Ucla Athlete Student Athlete Dan Grows the head the other DR UC Irvine before he got the job. Ucla was kind of a rising star in that world and his tenure UCLA has been like I even put my sport in there when it comes college baseball they've had a great run. Nobody cares the two the the two things that people care about those. I know that. Ucla wins just championships in the Olympic events and I good nobody cares if you could only see the way Travis Han is waiting right now listeners yes. He couldn't care less. I Love College Baseball Paul. UCLA's one of the Premier College baseball programs in the country. Nobody cares okay so he's leaving at the end of the academic year. Chip Kelly is winless this year he's coming off at three and nine season. They just went through and fired a basketball coach and hired a new guy from Cincinnati. This program is is not better than it was before he got here. They've gone through. Are you saying it was fired. I'm just saying that it's not any better than it was before is sixty eight years old so it doesn't is not out of the norm to suggest that someone nearing seventy may WanNa think about doing some other things with their life sure something less stressful than running in under Athletic Department of a major the university but he was fired certainly feels like it but and it's and it's unfortunate because when chip Kelly was hired that was buzz it was like Oh oh snap oh wow look at UCLA on the way back Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah so I don't fault him for for making higher everyone thought was a great hire. I agree I thought walk chip Kelly from reading his boss down chip Kelly they. UCLA had to go into basically a bidding war with Florida to get him they Florida wanted chip Kelly as bad as UCLA did. Ucla got it done and I would dare you to find somebody that when chip Kelly was hired that said you know what it ain't GonNa work right chip Kelly system awesome is everywhere. Now it's not new. He's not gonNA be able to get the same kids at Ucla that he was able to get in Oregon. He doesn't have the facilities they don't have the commitment to it all of those I think the academic requirements are far different at Ucla than they are to Oregon but there wasn't anybody that was saying here's why works they got one of the best college football coaches of the last fifteen fifteen years he didn't resign so that he can become the US's add well that would be a weird higher for sc not as weird things we were talking before about say. They don't a lot of weird things carol fair girl. Just you got to win and you've got to win. Those two things going to go move you along you. Can Hey are gymnastics. Program is really good. It's really good holiday. We went to the College World Series three times five years great good for you. It's very good. Nobody nobody cares for. How's your football team to three and nine? How're you doing this year? Well only three but you still tickets well. We had about twelve thousand the people at San Diego State but Oklahoma. They came out for that right. Well Sixty Thousand Oklahoma fans. Did it's time to go. I guess I mean Yeah Yeah. Yeah I mean I'm looking for silver lining because I whether it's Clay Helton and what is Guerrero or whoever you know I just hate to see people lose their chops. It sucks but if you suck then I guess it's kind of years why I think it's a little different. When we're talking about coaches in these sorts of guys they get paid? Hey at such an extreme rate that the turnovers just part of the GIG and the compensation for turnover is we're going to pay like crazy. What sucks is a guy the woman that's making fifty thousand seventy thousand thirty five thousand that loses their job there? They need to find a check tomorrow when you make a couple of million bucks bucks a year or several hundred thousand dollars a year and you lose a job you can. You have some time to go find your next one. You do have some time but I don't think the sting is significantly less. It's it's embarrassing yeah. It sucks all of us. All everybody's told you gotta go. I mean it's I've gotta go horry yeah. Stop Stop bringing up that right. He's he's happy about it and he was like you told me I had to go but I really wanted to leave. Says okay yeah good luck spend more time with the family Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah. You hired chip Kelly which seem really good on the outside looking in now. There were anti stinks you know what if that's the downside of it you who did something smart the cowboys Rosia. I'm GonNa say something Nice about you cowboys. Oh they basically told Taco Charlton thank you but you can move onto onto your next phase of your career. He was a first round draft. Pick a couple of years ago and the cowboys did something that very very few teams are willing to do and that is just a you know what we left Ticker L. We take the L and showed you guys this morning. In our pre production show meeting very exquisite meeting that a text from to August August eleven precede I believe is the second or first or second preseason game. I simply sent to a couple of friends and a group Tech's. Hey I haven't seen TACO. Charleston touched the A quarterback in about two years. I think we missed on this one now to the cowboys credit they've drafted very well. They have a lot of stars on a defensive in the offensive end under I contract so they've drafted well but like Travis is sometimes you miss one. They decided hey we'll recognize this early. We missed. Can we initiate a rule. Please do not draft a TACO. tacos are meeting not to catch football or score points. Well we get Taco Fall Right who talk oh Charleston who Taco fall to your other team bringing up by bringing up a tacos on both his ticket. Oh my God he's got a Taco and a Celtic talks are calling Taco Charlton new shrugs who works here in Dallas they say he was soft now. They're calling him soft top soft Shell Taco. Where where are we okay? Let's let's let's go from Taco Charleston to tacos soft Taco crunchy Taco right those are the two lanes boy well. What about the crunchy one that we put in the grease and and fry a little bit and it gets even crispier? That's fun I notice I'd like the like the Jackass does not the role of octial sort of yeah but so like you go to a really authentic Mexican. They'll take the hard it's a hard shell but then you stuff it with all the stuff and then put back in the oil and frightening kind of closes up. Oh my gosh drivers. That's Vegan knew what could be. I guess as long as the Greece's Vegan you know is is there such a thing as Vegan Greece. You know we're so bad that when you bring up your name as an athlete and he starts my refried beans and deep frying shells again as opposed athletic achievement that's tacos hard to mess up unless you're a football centre or Celtics. That's a little different time tomorrow. You're listening to K E._S._P._N. Los Angeles happy birthday to our friend Chris.

"Here we go, and it's time for fasttrack and one side of the coin we've got. The this should be an easy one. Right. Actually. No, I'll make this art tomorrow night. Lebron gets a completely positive ovation gangland on the other side of the coin. There are moves call it in the air. They're both. Yeah. There's going to be some ridiculous Cleveland now that don't do that check. I think it's gonna be eighty percent. Cheers. And like twenty percent. Okay. Well, that that could be and there's gonna be signs outside. It's not gonna be a whole, you know, completely positive. Okay. Here we go fasttrack brought to you by Rex thinking of selling your home. Try wrecks the lowest fee full service agency saving sellers, twenty five grand on average. If Rex dozen sell your home and sixty days, they will introduce you to your next agent to get started. Visit Rex homes dot com. Momo it was your call. All right. I'll go first. All right. I'll just you know. Let's let's see how I do it mostly sports theme. This time good. It's a this. I mean after all the number one sport show in LA, Mason Ireland Friday, we were talking about movie. Embarrassing myself with the Scorsese still clearly don't know your score says right Philadelphia. Seventy Sixers guard Marquel? Foltz the number one overall pick in two thousand seventeen is scheduled to see a shoulder specialist early next week at the direction of his agent. Raymond brothers. Sixers coach Brett Brown general manager Elton brand. So they were not aware of any issues with false prior to receiving a call from the agent on Tuesday morning, saying the twenty year old guard would not be playing until at least next week quote. There's nothing we saw medically that didn't allow him to play Elton brand said after the team practice in New Jersey. He played last night you played two days ago. My question to you see is his agent doing a disservice by not pushing him harder by not saying, hey, man. This doesn't look good. Is his agent pushing him harder doing him into service ruin a disservice by not pushing them harder. You gotta tell the kid the truth at some point. You got to tell the kid the truth. Boy, I'll tell you this is just a washout pick, isn't it? I mean, this was the number one pick in the draft that could have been Jason Tatum that could have been Ondo Lonzo. I mean there were great players at the top of the draft Philly. Absolutely. Screw this one. And you got to be straight with the kid. I mean, something's not right. What is not right with? Clearly, there is something with his shoulder that doesn't feel right. But most of this feels mental most of this feels like you're not handling the adversity was that the double pump at the free throw line. Is that what I eat like the old pump fake at the free throw line? Yeah. Keep them guessing Elton brand ever since Jimmy Butler joined the team last week. And he wasn't in Joe Marquel? Full wasn't starting. I thought he played pretty well. I was proud of him the way he bounced back from a lot of things brand also seem us as to why full couldn't have an appointment. Take place sometime before next week quote. I don't know how long he's going to be out Monday the consultation, I asked why Monday, and he said it was the best day. They could get an appointment. You can't get an appointment right away. If you're the number one pick in the NBA draft. The whole thing is sketchy the whole shooting thing has been sketchy from day one. I don't is this beyond repair. I don't know. I mean, but you're right. It does see mental. It seems mental. I think there is. There was something physically. But now is that even a part of the equation? Are you just falling back? I mean, I think would get to this point where your coach integral manager are saying these like this publicly. Maybe that's a good thing. Because you know, you've got a challenge the your data. Somebody's got to challenge them the time for being nice to the rookie and letting them work through the mental stuff. Maybe that's over. I can't get an appointment till Monday. Mean you all continue the, quote, I thought they might move it up for him brand added with a smile, but I guess not some Mondays the -pointment and after that, we'll know more. Yeah. I mean, the average guy says get me into Dr Ravelo Rockin, and you go to Dr robber or L tries or any of these guys. You get an immediate your hush with millions of dollars the next day next day. Yeah. Doesn't make any sense. It sounds like it sounds mental to me. I'll check all right in a kind of bizarre story. A source reported ESPN over the weekend that the Cleveland Browns had interest in doing former secretary state Condoleeza Rice to be their next head coach after leaked out. John Dorsey said, no, no, not sure we're not interviewing her when she heard about the whole thing. She posted this on Facebook. I love my Browns. I know they will hire an experienced head coach to take us to the next level on a serious note. I do hope the NFL will start to bring women into coaching as position coaches and eventually coordinators head. Coach's one doesn't have to play the game to understand it and motivate players, but experience counts, and it is time to develop a pool of experienced women coaches, by the way, I'm not ready to coach, but I would like to call a player to next season if the Browns need ideas, and no at no time will I call for a prevent defense. So a few questions. Like into that. 'cause it was just real story. Do you think the Browns wherever actually planning to interview Condoleeza Rice, how long you been doing this? You can you can unpack with this was right. Like, unpack it for me. Okay. So somebody had this. I'd either Condie was interested or wanting to be consulted. I mean what she gave was an interesting quote. Yeah. She actually grew up watching Browns games. And I think she does know she's Browns fan, but she and her dad. I'm not gonna say what just happened. You know, pretty funny. Later. Yeah. She dad watched and she knows strategy. Like, I think that's how she like developed some of her strategy on foreign relations. And and she's like international. I can't remember what her major was. But she has a PHD in this international affairs, something really cheapening her incredible comets, but she has a PHD in that from where she said, she really does football. She was she's on the college football playoff committee. I could see her as more of like general manager. There's been a lot of rumors about her wanting to be Commissioner of the NFL that would make sense to me. Yeah. And what she's trying to say just because I didn't play and I don't necessarily. I've never been a coach doesn't mean. I don't know football and have knowledge in the way that you can be coach isn't always about Xs and os about motivating and organizing a true. Okay. Sounds like there may have been mentioned maybe she was lobbying from this. Let's unpack this somebody heard about it and wanted before it ever took on life forever. Even became like. Maybe she would interview somebody leaked it. Right. That out there's a trial balloon or whether she leaked it or somebody who heard about it and didn't want this to ever go anywhere leaked it. So that it would get shot down. Right. Right. That would be a motivation for leaking. A story like that. Because there's no Adam Schefter writes, it, maybe they were actually planning to interview. Right. That's saying either either she was at up they said, no. Yeah. Trial and the other question kind of goes to the broader point which is. Will there ever be a woman as a head coach in the NFL is that possible? And if so how far in the future. I don't see it. I think that probably basketball is the first bastion where that will happen because because Becky Hammon. Yeah. Becky Nancy Lieberman, people in talk about Nancy as much she coaching the big three this year. But she's a legend game. She's been on show, George Karl staff Jenny Bucek is on riccar Lyle staff, there's there's there's been because women play play play into WNBA they play at the highest level. And so most male basketball players would respect a former player now, not all football coaches play. Not all basketball coach, Mike Brandon play. Right, right. There's plenty of basketball coach you didn't play and yet they become head coaches. So theoretically that should and could be able to happen in football too. But for whatever reason, I think football is not the kind of sport where football player who would be somebody who didn't play. Really? I just don't see that barrier. I think they could be GM by the way live in office. We live in a world where predominantly men. Coach women's basketball. Right. Like women. Don't even there's not even a majority of women that are working as coaches at the collegiate level. What about the WNBA? So I don't follow isn't a lot of men. Yes. Sparks coached, man. Bill in bears. They're like everything on. Yeah. Come on. That's right. Yeah. Demi Gino Auriemma premier college in the country. I'll check okay Mitra. Hey, I don't know if you noticed Seve, but your clippers your clippers hide for first in the Western Conference. Off to a great clippers. I dunno. I dunno Steve they kind of have a lot of the qualities that you like they play hard every night. They don't tank they have they don't have a lot of stars on their team. Yup. My question, though, is not about the clippers because I already know where you're gonna go with that. Yeah. They don't have a lot of stars on their team Tobias Harris, probably the closest maybe, but I wouldn't consider them stars role players right players can team with no stars connect. When you connect connect with fans, if they're really good. Can they develop following no? Especially not in LA. You you've got to have a star that that has got a gravitational pull and Lou Williams. Nice player Tobias Harris, really nice player. But no gravitational poll. I mean, they when they had Chris Paul when they'd Blake Griffin and deandre Jordan at the peak. They had they had stars that you know, we're able to pull certain people in. But no not without a star. Absolutely. Not. I think you have to have somebody that people can hook onto the clippers. Do have a couple of players that are really fun to root for like mantras Herro really root for that guy. Who's talk? I the globe on bull. Bon Mariano of it. Yeah. Yeah. I think they can develop a cult like following. Well, let's face it. That's what the clippers have a cult like following. They play hard play hard. They're really enjoyable, actually. Right now, you're around. I mean, I tell you into the game. And it was so much nicer to be around that team that it was back in the Blake and Chris era. I'm highly unlikely to be at a clippers playing the Lakers unless you're playing Chack. All right one of the most anticipated movies for the Academy Award season. I saw this weekend is called green book. It's the story of Dr Don, Shirley, who is Jamaican American pianist who towards the deep south in the sixties along with a bouncer who serves as his driver and security, Don Shirley's played by kademi award winner. My Shali a Li my Shala Ali and he played Remmy on house cards. The security guys played by Vigo Mortenson. Now, the live to in a at the Arclight last week Mortenson who is white said, the actual n word speaking about cyclical generational, use of hate speech. According to several audience members in attendance and use the N word specifically as an example. The crowd was stunned. He later apologized saying that although my intention was speak strongly against racism. I have no right to even imagine the hurt that is caused by hearing that word in any context, especially from a white, man. How agreed this is this? And will this hurt the movie and Mortenson when it comes to winning awards could hurt him? I don't think it hurt the movie, I think he'll hurt him. To me. I just I just don't I would never use the word. I just can't even think about it. Think of uttering it you just it's just your anyway, I get upset when anyone uses it like, I don't wanna tell anyone what to do or whatever it is. But I don't even like hearing it ever see even in this context. Even in the shocking, like if it's written into the script or something, I guess, you know, if written into the script the script, but other no point does this character say the word in the script upset like, you know, when I hear like anybody used the word, and I and I know that some people do, and they think it doesn't mean the same thing if it's an air. I just know it's a bad word to me that you don't even touch, and I think it hurts him. I don't know if it'll drag the film down, let me tell you the movie, it's my favorite movie, the green book is great. And I hope it doesn't hurt him because he's fantastic and go ahead and wrap up. Another award for Marschall Ali because he's that good. He's going to win a second Academy Award that guy. So good so strong recommend for the the green book. I'll check. I know, but you still might computers. I have to do it up phone. All right. So we're always in here watching the TV's that are in the studio. Yes. Catching up with what's going on in the world? And every day. I look up there, and I see Michael Strahan hosting on TV's and big deal now. Yep. He looks like he's lost a hundred pounds since he played who have you seen celebrity who has changed their body. The most since they became a celebrity so somebody with major weight loss somebody with plastic surgery, which celebrity jumps to mind who has undergone radical transformation. Well, in terms of roles, it's really easy, it's Christian bale Christian bale got so emaciated skinny for a movie called the machinist. He must have weighed like ninety eight pounds. And now he's playing Dick Cheney and has he's playing he's playing Dick Cheney. He's unrecognizable as Dick Cheney in a movie called vice which is coming up. Matthew, mcconaughey did something really similar for Dallas buyers club and in terms of physical transformation. I would have to say Joan a hill has gotten. Yeah, right away. Stan and looks great. Yeah. Looks great because he was. Yeah. Hey was heavier and he looks fantastic thin. Yeah. That's that's what I was Jona hill. Renee, Zellweger style. She did she did some face face stuff stuff. Jennifer hudson. Oh, Jennifer Hudson. Yeah. That's a good one. Yeah. Jennifer Hudson's, like major weight loss, Kelly Clarkson, and she's been up and down though. I don't mean that about way Oprah up down. I kind of like a more because that's real. Yeah. No. It's real. It's honest. Yeah. But yeah, you got what just watch the trailer for the Dick Cheney. It's unreal. That's us is Dick Cheney. Wow. Yeah. Chack? Let me see I think I was going to ask you that question last week. So I won't ask you that. No instead, Bryce Harper accosted by TMZ at LAX, you know, the. The. And he wouldn't say directly which teams he is considering but he did say this. When asked about what cities have the best food. He said favorite food, Chicago. They got great food place called steak forty eight. It's good dish. Of course question is tipping. His hand is thinking about because the White Sox are a legitimate contender. Does this mean that cubs? White Sox have the inside track. Or is this just BS this price upping his price? This is Bryce negoti. That's great. I love that. He's doing that. Yeah. So we just talked about this last week with the Phillies affiliates owners like I'm going to spend a lot of money. We might do something stupid. Yup. That they're wanting to throw money around the Chicago teams throw money around. The nationals already was reported offered him three hundred million. And he turned it down. This is Bryce messing with everyone. I love that. He did that. I would not be surprised at all to see him with the White Sox. They've got like twenty million in salaries committed for next year. I mean, they've got just loads of spending room, but I did see a pull of baseball general managers. Surveyed anonymously and the dodgers were the second choice for Bryce Harper. I've heard no specific information about that. But second choice for Bryce Harper. At least according to a survey of general managers for MLB dot com. Check. So what I would say with the dodgers though. Yeah. I just don't see them going Bill way. Like, I think they would go in the same ballpark. But it's gonna come down from Bryce of do you want to go to the team where you can win the most or you can make the most that may not be the same thing or might be in Philly. Yeah. Could be yeah. Phillies Phillies a perfect match in that way. It's to you. Okay. Hey, so the report today is JR Smith has parted ways with the Cleveland Cavaliers he doesn't wanna be around while they're tanking. He thinks they're outright Tang. He just called it out and said, this is what's happening. We're not even trying to win is Jerry Smith done is. He are he mellow going to find any new team. Well. The mellow thing was entirely predictable. I I never thought that that was going to work. I I don't think you subtract. Trevor reason Luc Mbah a Moute and all the sudden turn to Carmelo Anthony inspect to maintain your defensive intensity. It sure seems like mellow might be done where does he go? I I don't see it. And. JR Smith in Jerry Smith is he can't. Well, I mean, they would have to trade him right because he still under contract or walk office deal away from the team like, I guess they'd have to trade him. But I guess they theoretically could do a buyout or they could e- could they could waive him. So they would pay his money, but he could sign somewhere else. The money. But the idea is they don't want him around this happened with Joe Kim, Noah also like Kim Noah, they just said we still want you around anymore. You got into a fight with our head coach and aren't good anymore. Anyway, let's was he sent away or did he leave on his own accord think they go? She ate it. I think JR and the Cavs officially a buy out not yet. They're just kind of waiting for the probably they're waiting till December fifteenth to see if there's teams that want to trade for Jerry Smith's, pry, go spot in the league still. Yeah. The only thing so more so than Melo. God that's close. Yeah. I think more so the Mila what do you think yet probably is younger plays better defense shoots three pointers three point Ella's, captain mid range. Yeah. You know, I can see chair land in Houston. Yeah. He's kind of what they need like a guy who can make threes. And weirdly replacing mill weirdly, replacing mellow kind of land in Philly from there. Yes. Threes, probably has more of. Yeah. He probably has more of a spot than melodies. Isn't it? Crazy. Yeah. We live in a world where Jair Smith has more of a spot than Carmelo. Well. You're you're plugged into. This is anybody stood. Mel, no, I I think there's teams that are would consider the idea if he would play like a bench role or like the role where it's twenty five minutes night. Right. And just be that guy. But I don't know if they're interested if he's not willing to do that. And we're not even talking Olympic mellow anymore. No, Carta mile, Vince Carter mellow. Yeah. All right. Fast chat. Four-team? Where's? The post meets. She you're not we're gonna play name that tune will you run over and grab market. Mario. Yeah. Grab. Mario. All right. I'll just ask another good doing. All right. So James Wiseman who it sounds a lot like Jameis Winston that name is some of the lake letters around. It would be Winston anyway, James Wiseman, originally that cow degree hard at work the letters around. So James James Wiseman is the number one recruit in the two thousand nineteen class. He initially committed to Kentucky cow gets everyone. Yes. But then Memphis hired penny. Hardaway to replace tubby Smith in March and things began to shift towards the Tigers Hardaway head coach wise men on the grassroots circuit with the team penny bluff city legends program, and he also coached him in highschool at east high in Memphis in route twi- state championship penny came out of nowhere to be that to be the coach in Memphis somewhat say they only hired him to get James wezeman. Wow. To switch the commitment and go to Memphis. Yeah. Today, he committed to Memphis. Is there anything wrong with this not at all not at all mean? I look if you're Memphis and member Memphis back in the day was a power if you're Memphis, and you've got the land an unbelievable prospect number one recruiting the country higher Penny Hardaway now, I don't I don't know if it's. Gonna work. Yeah. It worked to get the number one recruit in the country coaching a ball whose coaching like high school. So there's no way to know if if pennies going, there's no way, we know there's no way to know that it's not gonna work, right? Might be worth a shot. He's started. He's got a good building block there with the number one recruit in the country. I say smart move by Memphis for one year for one year. Okay. Smart move. Absolutely on that. It's penny. Hardaway's got people talking about Memphis hoops again. Why would we have ever mentioned? Memphis. Not not like Memphis. The tigers. That's right. Yeah. They play in the pyramid in the pyramid. That's right. Yeah. All right. Today with name that tune you really think I'm gonna win. This got a shot. Gotta fight and shot finite avenue. Mario were we is here to play name that to the hair. Yeah. I like it. Thank you. Appreciate that. All right son is but now you are you are having a musical. Aficionado genius. Not as much as I used to be after the baby you do your thing. It's okay. So I've got five songs for name that tune. Some of these may favour Momo. Okay. Yeah. May favor mobile. Mom rates. I can't recall anything like, I don't even. That's the thing right migraine. That's is that a real thing. So this is unfair advantage here for me today. You know you walked in. And it took me a second to realize it was me. No. I just I knew you were both like the name didn't come to. He really. Wow. That's sounds like a severe case Cal. You did go to cow. Wow. All right. So here we go each of these songs is dedicated to someone or something in sports. Okay. All right. That's pretty vague something in sports tell you what. Each one is win this. You really stink. Yes. So this song. Mommy. Bring name is the buzzer. Right. Name is buzzer. Name is your butts. This song is about what USC fans are thinking this week. Your name is your buzzer m'kay. Oh, Momo some something to talk about Queen Queen, correct? Yeah. House good somebody to love wick Momo. Someone I wanna see that by the way, this frontmen ever rate frigging movie, and he's the best man. Do you agree? Rami Mollet, just cough. This song is what clay Helton is thinking today. Mario. Mario black IP's. Black-eyed pea. I wear is the law. I would've got that eventually one one one one we're going at it k-. This song is about the Lakers weekend the Lakers weekend. Morio Katy Perry. Eighty perry. You're so fad that was a big hot and cold. As long as all over the place. Yeah. This song is about. John Ireland yesterday. Mogo. We'll slough. Ziggy win. Chance chance I might just say my name, even if I don't know the land strategy the last one this is a song about last night at the Coliseum. Mile Momo life is a highway does. What is it? We get to play. I could feel it in the air tonight. Right. Artist? Phil Collins colleagues. Absolutely, correct. Blink for a second to you. I had to go not only chance of would've got that. Actually, read it to that was an impressive showing Shelburne me on jeopardy just was too early with the buzzer. Little too quick. And as no defending bandwagon fans. I heard you earlier onto fest bandwagon just because you're a bandwagon fan. That's right. Yes. You are. You are like hell I am. Don't come. After me is basically no new fans ever heard that saying new new fence. Oh, is that what you're saying? For your L AFC. No new fans knew team can have a new fan. That's okay. There you go. All right. Mario. Thank you. The kings. We did like hold shows on the kings and the Stanley Cup can sure Susan get back to the Stanley Cup and do it again. I went to cap. Oh, there it is. See self admitted. Right. Yeah. I went to Cal. I did go there few times we yeah. I did want to I on campus. We'd have played big game than we usually one. All right Momo's in for John coming up next. Rams fifty four Kansas City. Fifty one night last night. We'll dig into the game coming up next Mason in Ireland Momo in for Johnny SPN allay. All right last night. I think. Yesterday. I was joking around. Game of the year. Right. Then I joked around thog game of the century and game of the millennium. I gotta say that is. Without question. The trying to greatest sporting events I've ever attended. Obviously the leverage is not as high right? So World Series games regular season game. But as far as regular season games, go that is the best one. I've never been at any sport period. Number two. Kobe Bryant's final game. Okay. I'm not as good at remembering games that I went to I go to Seoul many times. But something was popping the greatest ever must stick in your brain. The Kobe game was pretty great great. I remember a couple years ago. The dodgers knocked the giants out of the out of the playoffs. When Steve Finley hit the home run in the dodgers weren't plan for anything. But that was great. I remember that Steve Fallon one. Yeah. Season that didn't really mean anything other than knocking the giants. But it's kinda hard. They sort of all blend together for me. There's some really great the reason about the one last night was great is that it was billed as a great offensive showcase and it exceeded expectations exceeded. I mean, it was just ridiculous and. To every member of the Ramle. Including the people I sit around. It's just the place was the environment was just a frenzy. I mean it and it was so over the top entertaining. I thought last night was a big moment for winning over hearts and minds. There comes a point when people at a CD connect to a team. Like, I think people were excited that the NFL is back there. The Rams were back to an extent. There was a point where in the Jeff Fisher people said probably wasn't such a good idea. Like, I remember being very excited the first game and the build up to the first game. And then that team was just so boring. Gosh, perfect for Bergman. Perfect for Greg the grand try. They never scored. It was like defensive struggle. Aaron Donald was awesome. But like offense remember Todd Gurley. People picked him number one in fantasy and he had this terrible year terribly. I had them that year. Jared Goff was a bust. Well, you know, and here's the unfair thing. I heard Travis Rodgers say this last night on the pre-game show jerk off now has a bad rap. He's a system quarterback. He's a system quarterback and the truth is that jerk off was the number one pick in the draft for a reason. It's just the Jeff Fisher screwed them up. You know, he played seven games as rookie season. He was sacked twenty six times and seven games, it's unfair to expect a guy to perform under that kind of pressure with that offensive line with the offensive mind. That is rob Boris former tight end and the truth is this was always Jared Goff. This is a case where I mean, it's Tom Brady system quarterback. Of course, he is. Of course, he is. He's played in one system. Well, okay. It's a some extent everybody is like if you put it like Steph curry is probably system player too. Because he's in a great system. Like you knew. Steph was great when he played for Mark Jackson. But did you know he was as great as he is when he started play this Kerr offense, right, right? Like there was a different. You saw a big difference from year to year. He went from really good player who maybe wasn't even all who was in all star before that. I don't even know if he made the all star team. I don't think Kerr took over his two time MVP, right? There's I mean, that's a huge jump. But also the game sort of came to me Steph curry changed the game. He started making those thirty five footers, and then everybody had to sprint had we had to guard in there. And then there was more space for everybody else. And then I I really think Steph changed the game almost more than any modern player like as great as Kobe or Michael was did they did they change the game? And how it's played steps. Actually changed the game. Right. I think the quarterbacks right now in the offense right now with the Rams the chiefs. They are changing football people are going to start playing like this. Now, this is going to be the modern NFL. I hope so. And you know, what it's not unlike what's gone on in the NBA with the with the hand. Checking knob being enforced with the. The clock angry set to fourteen seconds after an offensive rebound. All that stuff is designed to score more points as Kirk Morrison said earlier on the show the way last night's game was called clutching robbing holding. They wanted the NFL one the NFL wanted a lot of points on the board. I haven't seen. I wonder what the the local rating was in LA last night. Normally Ireland has a way to find stuff like that out. Maybe maybe we can figure that out. It has to be just. Yeah. I mean, first of all the rating, it's the highest rated NFL game Monday night football game since two thousand fourteen part of that. It was awesome matchup was sitting United football game used to be like the two it used to be like the game of the week. And now that's kinda shifted to the Sunday night game seemed to have changed into they get the best games. Now. I don't know if they pay Sunday night game flexes. Yeah. Came set this. When you originally sat down at the beginning of the season prima homes, and before we know, well, we knew the Rams are going to be good. But pre whole just great. It's going to be say oh, Monday night. You know? That's that's great Rams. Get a home game football. And the chiefs are there, and you know, the chiefs. You know, Andy Reid. Yeah. That's about a and I remember doing there was a there was a topic on around the horn in preseason when like Mahomes had a couple of interceptions or something. And he said something like, yeah. My bad. And the question that the discussion topic was the chiefs expecting too much out of Pat homes is first year. Right, right. Like, they you know, they traded Alex Smith because they had sat Mahomes for his whole rookie year. They traded Alex Smith knowing like they got this kid and they've really built him into this. They really stake in their reputation on him. And everybody was like consider any way guys possibly that. Good. Well, kid is good. I looked at. I looked at Mahomes last night. And I think there's a recipe now for how to deal with Pat, Mahomes, if you're on the other side, hey, tell you what that is next. Mason Ireland ESPN LA got me. I fifty four fifty one last night at the Coliseum just a dramatic. Unbelievable win for for the Los Angeles. Rams and. The let's see we got we got a list of the local ratings. It looks like according to deadline. It's unclear to me highest rating for ESPN. It says the cable or kill area. So Trent three jargon highest rating for the cable or in two years. Now what I don't know is does that mean just for Monday night football. Yeah. I mean for football in general does that mean for everything I mean because we have the finals, but those aren't ABC those are ABC, but stuff like the college football playoff championship playoff. Is it? I think that is that on ESPN, I think that's ESPN. But in other words, gigantic ratings highest dancing with the stars. Finale. That's that's crazy. I mean, the these two audiences do not overlap at any of my mom watches dancing with the stars people still watch that. Yeah. Moms moms love, dancing Dharma. I don't want to that. Yeah. No lot of. Here's your new mom. You're a new mom dancing with the stars. Mom is probably fifties. Yeah. Fifth KFC audience. But I mean it highest rating for Monday night football in two years. What am I hearing behind me? What am I talking people are? No, no, no. I'm hearing music or something. Hear that too. Yeah. No. There's there's something they're not somebody. I don't know you gas lighting me. There's something there. That happens sometimes that I get gas. Yeah. No, I get and susceptible to it. All right. So here's a story with Pat Mahomes. Yeah. You got pressure on the guy. That's a whole thing. Getting crush on the guy the Rams were able to get a ton of pressure on them. If you can get pressure on them. He's prone to mistakes he had five turnovers. I know we want to focus on the six touchdown passes. But the Rams were able to successfully get to them and it resulted in five big mistakes. So I think the biggest problem for Pat, Mahomes, going forward is also his greatest gift he has an incredible arm. He can do anything, and he's incredibly athlete, and he can make any throw like when you know that you can do anything on a football field. Sometimes you force it. Sometimes you do things that you shouldn't do it was like it's how I always felt watching. Brett Farr like Brett farve could do anything. He wanted out on the field. John Allen could do anything. He wanted on the field. And that's why they would have bad interceptions. Because he always thought he could force the ball in their. He could make that play other people couldn't make it. You figure out that you the voices in your head, you figured it out. Yup. Okay. Okay. And I think that's the issue with homes is you have to just dare him to make the one thing. I'll say about Mahomes is I think because he will take off and run with the football. He may be prone to injury. I don't even say that lot. No. But I mean, you know, what I'm saying? Well, far was like that to Steve Young that young was like that. Yeah. I'm but I mean, we were not in the age where the running like Lamar Jackson in good and keep doing that. That's not the way to stay healthy in this league as quarterback. And I thought last night. Jared Goff was incredibly impressive. And I mentioned the static couple of times today. But it's worth mentioning again. In the final eleven minutes of regulation last night. Tighter. Trailing by six or fewer Jared Goff was ten fifteen for one hundred fifty eight yards two touchdowns and no interceptions. He's for real. And there was a time. When I mean, an Ireland will acknowledge us there was a time when Ireland would come on the station and say Jared Goff can't play. He did say that a few times. Yeah. Jared Goff dig up that audio. I know I think he'll just totally knowledge it and own it. And what can you say about Aaron Donald man that guy is on real leads? The league in sacks to strips acts last night. Who would have thought going in that Sam ever come would had have more touchdowns than Todd Gurley? And you know, did did last night significantly changed the MVP race in your mind. The NFL MVP race. I think you breeze. Probably in the lead. Breeze to me. Now drew Brees last night. Somebody could have seized it. Yeah. From last night's game. Nobody did five turnovers for homes jar Goff was good. Actually. No. Let's be honest. Jared Goff was great great. But not necessarily drew Brees. Great. Drew Brees is just lighting scoreboards up all over the country and Todd Gurley was quiet. Yeah. Now, I still would argue that of them Todd Gurley. Probably has the best chance to steal the MVP away from drew breeze because he's got twenty three all purpose touchdowns. And if you wind up in the thirty. All purpose. Touchdown range. Pretty good. They got to pay attention to you. They pay attention. But he seems like Mike trout to me. You might know. He's the best player, but people he just finished a second. All the time. Somebody told me what is the all time record for all time. All purpose touchdowns in a season. That sounds like a job for the Twitter that does sound like for Twitter or for our producer. Okay. He just ate. So he's he should be energy. Leaping greg. The Grinch should be able to just had sushi here. Peyton is scientifically proven not to fill you up. So like gigantic quantities of sushi. And not before it's not scientists. Too damn long for you. Nate manning fifty five and two thousand all purpose touchdowns. We'll all right. That's touchdown passes. Right. Which is probably gonna be the knows fifty five touchdowns. It's a lot. You're talking about tug early in the thirties. Wait a minute. All purpose touchdowns. You like disqualify L quarterback? That's all purpose touchdowns for for a Peyton Manning running five. Yeah. For running back. Okay. Now you for a running back. I'm changing the goalposts because it didn't fit your narrative. Yeah. Hey, what's coming up? What's coming up next? Greg have not had an answer yet. So that means he's more coming up next. Yeah. You're gonna you're gonna grab us a guest. Yes. I have not heard back from there onto three forty five today. Yes. Bonus time, I think the idea was more Mason all the time. Cannot get enough Mace. I'm about to open the phone here. Becoming the Stephen A of the station, you are wives that Stephen they, you know, he's just on everywhere. All the time is on. Well, he's all he's network is just the station. He just pops up everywhere like just on sportscenter PTI around. I don't know he's on their own the horn pet. He's he's all over the place. I'll tell you what what coming up next. I've figured out the two guys who I think should be the final candidates for head coach at USO. Wow. Just now it just came to you know, I had a plant. But but I'm unloaded next. Mason Ireland ESPN LA. All right. So let's see Monday. Monday this coming. We'll be eating thirty sandwiches for like the fifth day in a row. I was going to say it's the day that clay Helton relieved of his duties as head coach much, happier place. Yeah. Monday is going to be the day Saturday is going to be an annoying Saturday for me because my mom's boyfriend is a Notre Dame fan. So we've got to go to the game that was his birthday present. So I've got to go watch. See get. Anyway, I don't like after the embarrassment of losing to UCLA. You don't think the players will rally once a team is done. It's done. But it's in LA, right? They don't have to go south bend. No. It's here that helps makes it worse. It's going to happen here. Okay. Did you Greg? Her bet you guys betting on that game that you play me. What's so funny? Yes. I told you take the pet. We on Friday. I was here. The hair shaving you guys going to shave your heads. And Greg said, no, she didn't take you. Remember, you were here mobile right right after he said, I was not taking that. Yeah. Yeah. But the point is if you wanna jumped on it, I wouldn't have had me in a box. But then later, I missed track the head the coin toss was will USC UCLA. And I said, I think he's feeling will win great convinced me. And I also think that's young team. That's getting better. And they're playing for something where this they're getting better. You know, once they lose to Stanford. They will finish losing four their last five this idea that they're getting better is ridiculous wins and losses are not what you look at. What it's getting better way wins and losses are not what you look. No. When you're getting not in the first year not in the first year. You look at other things you look at how the defense is progressing. You look how the three nine three nine no matter how you slice it. They if they are three nine they are three and nine, but that still means that I would rather have this three in nineteen than your five and seventy I would rather have the five and seven, oh, I got a new head coach I got a new head coach all things equal. If you're both same head coaches three and nine for me five and seven for you. Which would. Rather be. Well, it's not like you get a lottery pick if I mean, it's all just. Yeah. I- recruiting to me, they they're both awful. Well, they but they're both on C late getting better. Whereas USC is getting worse. Just I'm telling the same thing over and over again because it's the truth the truth. How can I don't see how you don't see this? There are three win team and they will finish losing their lives. It's about the way that they play. There's these good games would indicate you win some games. They are scoring more pulling they will have better. No, I'm not I'm sticking with the guy. That's all about the numbers. The wins the losses. There's no to in that the the number. That's under the w those are the ones that I pay attention. After Greg is making this argument, and he needs a we run this town he needs he needs that. I didn't say we run the town. I said that this team is getting better Notre Dame is only ten and a half favorite over USC in LA LA. It's a potential trap game. This this feels like if I was a Notre Dame person. I'd be worried it's a trap game smote. What are they looking forward to? Well, it's after thanksgiving the last game of the year right after thanksgiving, you probably home with your family. So you didn't have a normal week of practice. They probably you know, I would never bet against UCLA even mythical money. Yeah. But if I was going to bet mythical money on that game. I would lay those points. Laham Boeing mythical money update. How about that? How about a little mythical money update last night yesterday? Lou from where's Lou from? John's fake character Aben from LA Morella, Ben from Morada, Ben from Morada laid out their ten thousand on the under. Oh, that was a bad, man. Bad at that. So I won that bet. But I lost overall in the game. Greg you did win because you one on the hook. So what's they mythical money update? Well, my computer died, so this is about what it is. It's a hundred fifty to five for you Mason, one hundred fifty five for for Ireland, and I have ninety five. Oh, okay. So me and Ireland or about your about even. Yeah. Even after that, Ben from LA mirada bet exactly how all right so coaches that I like for the SC got. I love James Franklin from Penn State. Ooh, I like that Franklin was asked about this. And he said because his name has been out there long as you know, guys. I like always we're focused on Maryland completely one hundred percent. I don't think it's even fair or right to be talking about that job from everything I understand about it. But we're completely focused on Maryland. So that phrase. Right to be even talking about that job from everything I know about it. In fact, they even knows about the fact that he knows about trying to say is in Taino. He's about to get fired. So I don't wanna step right in line. It was he saying, I know clay Helton. He's a nice guy. Or is he saying everything I know about it, except how many zeros are at the end of the chat. I think that's a real Penn State. He signed a six year thirty seven million dollars contract with the one million dollar buyout. That's it a one million dollar by. Oh, yeah. Yep. The other guy, and this guy is now gaining a lot of traction is. Yeah. And there's going to be talked about Bob stoops. Hey, let's get Bob stoops that to me feels like yesterday's news. You know, what's tomorrow's news, Lincoln Riley, K Lincoln Riley, throw the house at if I was USC number one and total offense number one in yards per game. Number one in points number one points per game. If you want to look you are now if you're USC competing for head space, right? Yeah. And you've got LeBron and the Lakers you've got the dodgers fresh off back to back World Series wins but World Series the Rams doing what they're doing. You know, what the idea is to put on an entertaining show. And if you want an entertaining show, you don't hire Jack del Rio you hire an offense of minded head coach like Lincoln Riley. Now, there's gotta be a way to get Lincoln Riley out of their Lincoln Riley, by the way has been linked to the Dallas Cowboys job. I feel. He's going to go somewhere. No matter what. So linked him to the Browns job too. Because they ca- Mayfield. They're linked to the Browns shops. So there there are multiple links. But man, can you imagine Lincoln Riley for USC? So what's better job, these as college or NFL college? You're there forever. Unless you don't wanna be there unless you don't want to be there forever. Yeah. I mean NFL you're hired to be fired. Yeah. You can get a good Cup. Good decade. College football years there. To get two. Good years. That's pretty good too. And then he's had one bad year. You guys are already running for the hills. Wait, a minute, wait a minute this because he hasn't gone to you know, Rose Bowl USC has did go to restore no year one year. You're too on the Pac twelve champion sheet. This will be the fourth time since nineteen sixty two that US has had a losing record had one bad year fourth time since nineteen sixty two. This is not tolerated at USC, this is not acceptable. What six and five six and six was his first year the two two thousand one. So I think you could have a bad year in your one, but you have to lower trajectory. Look, this is over you have to be getting better. Yeah. And this is getting worse. This is going the wrong direction. Also just didn't have Sam darnold. Right. Sam darnold who's one of the reasons why clay Helton look, so good. And I was a supporter of clay coming into the year. Because exactly the reasons we said holds the record for most wins for a USC coach in his first two seasons sleeps in his office sleeps in his office. Although I don't know that that's entirely rare. Yeah. In the. I remembered about the interviews used to do with him. He was always sleeping in his office. Always working around the clock hard working guy. That's what he is. He's a hard working guy, and it was different than this the coaches from the Pete Carroll Trie who had this slickness about them. Who had we're great recruiters were lane kiffin, we're Sark where that all the that Pete Carroll disciples kind of had a slickness about maybe they won because they like Pete one because he was cooler than everybody smarter than everyone. And he had the most talent and everything disciples this word as cooler as slick as Pete, and they couldn't replicate what he did. So nobody can replicate what he did. Nobody could but USC tried that for a number of fires. And then they wanted to go into completely different direction and hire the nice guy this Jack del Rio if they I mean, there's a lot of stuff out there about Jack del Rio if they go that direction, I do not think the fan base accepts it. I mean, this whole let's get one of ours mentality is is a losing mentality. What's next where are they going? You know, the future is guy like Lincoln Riley, the future is a guy like James Franklin. Get get somebody young and charismatic. You know, what's new what's next? It's not Jack del Rio. It's just not at this point. You are competing. Yeah. US has had football. It was UC town because we didn't have that fell for twenty years. Correct. And it's back with a with a real real style with Sean McVay here. All right. We are here until three forty five. That's what it's come to. Did you get me somebody? He did not respond. He did not respond dang damn how the kind of clout us. All right, either that or he's never go. I'm doing eight seven seven seven ten guys. Let's talk to the people today. Don't normally do this. But I'm doing it today and tomorrow can we do with unscreened? Just pick a number and then his answer it. No. I think it's a fun bit. Do the green Astor in years that a good bit? No. It's not a bad bit shoot. Bit king. Chris Morales says screened the damn calls. Do your job. Doing your job by him lunch. And it can't even listen to a couple of callers crazy. Mobile's infra Johnny SPN LA.

In really creating some wellness environments or companies in Startup Company so that their employees are more productive in really take that working stress that oxidative stress out of the environment. I loved reading about that in the poor wellness. She's also gone through her own health concerns, overhauling and upgrading what Chu Health means and how to live each day, really gonNA. Get into that and she has her own results with a holistic approach that not only. Is it working for her? She's getting results in less than three months with clients as well.

Learn about stress and burnout listen. We're in a time today in today's world where that overwhelmed that stress. That burnout is so so high in Joanna's going to give us some tips on what we can do with that and we're going to learn more about ALOPICIA I didn't even know what that was six months ago. So I know there's many out there. That had no idea what that word even means. We're going to talk about that Juliana. I am so glad you're here and. Agreed to share your message with our audience. Thank you. Thank you for having me such a wonderful pleasure? You Bet so. Me a little bit about. it was core wellness kind of your introduction into the health and wellness in more of a holistic approach. was there something else that started you down that path? So. Before core wellness I was at a project manager I was an event planner I was working for the fortune, five hundred companies fortune to one hundred companies and I. Myself experienced the stress I myself experienced. The burn out I'm myself? Do to the chronic stressor the. Rat Race through the Hustle Hustle Hustle. Sixty seventy eighty hour. WORKWEEKS I. was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease, and this is kind of what shifted everything for me. It was the biggest alarm sounding. In my life because it really, it was much more than just. Let's say you know having fatigue one day or feeling a little tired that he can overcome a little coffee. It was much more than jest. Feeling Unwell for a week or two, it was your hair's falling now, and it's because your diet and lifestyle is all skewed round. You know there's nothing more than the biggest alarm clock Wendy. No hair starts to fall out and it's not just You know extra hair strands in the shower. It's clumps have walks. That is just you know shedding as if you're a dog of some sort, and it starts with the bald spot, and it just grows. It grew and it wasn't stopping and. You know when you see doctors. The information that they gave us limited the protocols that they give. You are very limited as well and you know they. Doctors are fantastic for what they do. Offer prescriptions in the offer drugs and they offer surgeries. There's a time place for Western medicine. However, no one is teaching us. The basics notice teaching us the foundational. Roots that we need to build strong. Strong. Immunity strong health for the rest of our life in these modern times, because the health that we have seen in understood really applies to what our world look like fifty years ago. It doesn't apply now where we have ems technology, we have you know so many other responsibilities, and it's a go go go! It's so different and so having alopicia having to have reverse it myself. It took me two and a half years to do this then. I I knew that the message had come out the message. Not those. who were. Allocation! But also people in intact people in the normal modern day, workforce also needed to hear about how that they also did it. Take caution with their stress, and this is how I became a professional speaker in a professional advocate for Alopicia, autoimmune disease, stress management earn out creating boundaries in creating healthy environments within the workforce I was actually always very interested in this and I had worked at apple for many years at Apple. They do many great things to protect your health to increase your health until you have a lot of nature around, you have an opportunity to take breaks when you need a you also have organic fruit that comes to the office in this type of thing but But at the same time, they're still a falls short. You know the company can help you so much, but you also need advocate for yourself Brian. This is this is the disconnect right because. Like good workers, you always want to do your best especially when times are tough. In a certain economic situation, you don't WanNa. Be The one who's. Laid off, you don't want to be the one who's chosen to to have to leave the company, and so you're always have to. Keep working in show your worth show your value, right? The holiday -ality ever since you're in kindergarten, you have to show your value. You have to take that task to get into the premier school to the premier. College to make it to I. Don't know the special cheerleading squad or whatever social activities you have. So, there's always this exam. There's always this task and so. You know we require especially in the American culture results results results everything done yesterday, not even today yesterday, right? What you're describing is, is this also complete total stress that we whether we put it on herself? So it's put upon ourselves. one of the things that I heard you talking about with your experience with Alopicia is at number one is you were relating it to stress your job environment on the hours that you are working the oxidative stress. It was put on your body, and when I was going through my own Autoimmune Ara conic diseases that I had. No doctor. I take that back. There were doctors, said. Wow, you have a lot of stress in your life. Your job is a high stress job. I was a business owner with five locations in over fifty employees. You know that I was indirect charge in in. It was like okay, but what do I do? You know and that it is at the disconnect that you're talking about you know we know there is stress I don't know that we can any in any way shape or form remove it completely, but where there such a disconnect icy is there's no one out there teaching us while there is now you know they're teaching us how to live with that stress or eliminate as much as we possibly can. Is that kind of where your passion grew? You're you're absolutely right? We're not teaching the right life skills that children especially need to learn early on so that they can avoid a lot of the pitfalls that we're seeing now it's it breaks my heart. Every time I have a parent come to me and say oh. My three year old has alopicia. Oh, Mike! HYDRO, DEVELOP EGYPT! I've seen documentaries that. A. Young children are going through rheumatoid arthritis. They have diabetes and they're not even ten years old and these diseases are. Any disease really you would think back in the day that it's meant for an old earth centered Smith for some who's an adult, not fridge, and yet we're seeing she'll nowadays with these with these diseases in it's a heart wrenching, but t I mean the beep. It also makes me think that there are some things. That's wrong and There's lots of factors to this. It's not just stress. Stress is a big one, but there's other systemic situations we need to tweak each area to create whole health for everybody including these young ones who are coming into the world now because you know if you look at statistics showing that. Children who are in high school or college have the highest rates of depression anxiety because a where we are today. There's so many world issues, and then also the pressures that society says like you know if you want to succeed, you have to go into this realm or this path, or this is the only path to success in this is not accurate. This is so not accurate. I so agree an inanimate that's not enough of a wake up. Call hearing about kids with Alopicia at the age of three four five years old You know when I was a child, the word cancer was really on unique. Not a lot of people had cancer in today when we mentioned the Word Cancer Week pobably rattle off a dozen people that we personally know that have cancer in that. That's so sad to me and it goes to the state of the of our health of our nation physically mentally spiritually. No I completely agree, and so we're not teaching stress management. We're not teaching meditation we're not teaching. Real nutrition because what the government says is completely upside down. Their method. Calculations of how they think nutrition really looks like is is completely wrong, and this is why you see an uptick in heart disease. This is why we haven't uptick in diabetes. This is why we have an uptick in obesity. A Weiner Yeah obesity numbers are I want to say either thirty to thirty four million. You're right now. In obesity is the number one cost for leading contributing factor into any other conic disease that we experienced You know in our society today so ALOPICIA. We've been talking about it. You know if people are clothing in is a is a immune disease. Can you tell us? Because some some people have heard that word auto immune disease, but what does that mean? So Essentially it's win. Your immune system is attacking itself so in this case hair follicles are attacking itself, and not allowing the hair to proceed to actually get to the hair growth, so they fall out instead so in rheumatoid arthritis it focuses on the joints. Ram An Ms. It also focuses on the joint mobility. Diabetes! You have the issue with the of Insulin Glucose. So everything is attacking itself. the problem with autoimmune diseases is one of two things we have over a hundred different types about immune diseases, and then also twenty five percent of people who have one go on choir, a second and third autoimmune disease. So you want to avoid that. You want to avoid being the statistic in. In so, there's many people who for sure they can live healthy lives with diabetes. It can sure out live healthy lives with Lupus, but why would you want to live with something? Instead of putting it to sleep just with a little discipline of Diet and lifestyle, and you know healthy nutrition, and then everything goes away. It's been more more than four years. My LP has gone away. You, know a lot of people like to say it's in remission. I like to say I. Put it to sleep. It's like a habit in my just like we all have cancer cells. Non, Diet and lifestyle, you can either increase your chances or cancer or decrease that, so it's really up to each of us. We vote with our four. We vote with you know how much exercise we do we vote with. All the negativity that we allow into our lives, we vote on so many different levels of how we can really produce disease or not, and so You know we have more control than what we seek in what we're allowed to believe And the way that we've been conditioned doesn't doesn't allow us to think this way. We think the doctor has a cure. All for you know a drug in antibiotic prescription, and not all of the time that this is actually the solution a lot of times. This is just a Bandai any absolutely, it's not getting to the root problem so I. I could go a couple of days right now, but what? What I! I would like to hear from you because you, you go out and work with companies and you've got. It sounds to me like a couple of different things going on, you've got core wellness in. Are you still doing or wellness I? Do so when possible right due to cove it, all meetings and events have stopped, but I still have been doing podcasts I still have been doing webinars Yup. I still do as much as you're. Able to with what you have. Giants prior to co bid. I was thinking professionally I was going to different organizations being for North Agencia companies talking about stress management burnout. Talking about immune disease, talking about many ways on how to mitigate. Special for entrepreneurs who are? You know essentially birthing a baby, and they're trying to put all their energy into this and so it. It's really necessary because you don't want to. Forget your health while you're building your company or building your brand right exactly. I think you know there's so many different Occupations, you know. Shall we say that that really instill that? Entrepreneurs are one of physicians are another one. I can't tell you how many physicians I've talked to. In interviewed on the podcast that because of their lifestyle demands on within their position, the Dave developed chronic disease in here. They're supposed to be helping to heal people and yet they're. They're the sickest ones of them all. It's it's just crazy. I, yeah, so the. Question I've got with that, and then you've got the alopicia angels. And, I I love that. You know see your real passion. Is You know helping others with this? Diseases well but let's talk about the mindset because that's one of the things that. I don't know if I would call it a frustration, but when you're dealing with companies in going out there and helping them with you know stress and mindset nsen solutions. There's a lot of resistance at times. You know I think people are so used to like. You said I I should just be able to pop a pill and feel better, and when we're trying to empower them to really take this into their own hands and realize that they've got control of this. Sometimes, there's some big resistance there. Do you meet up into that in your world as well? There is, and there's over well. It's a marriage of overwhelming resistance, so for example, even with with people who I interact with who have allocation currently sometimes, there's also resistance because outside of Alabama. They also have a full life going on also have demands and responsibilities to attend to so. It's trying to the change. There's a little fear change year in letting, go in, you know many people embrace it. Head on, and they WANNA start a sap and others. It takes time for them to implement little by little and. It's OK this little by little I'm the type of person Everyone has their own personality to this I'm the type of person that I go head in a jump right in no no qualms waters coal. Let's go decide. I don't eat Modi's I. Don't need of asset by not and I'll tell you dip in. How? No, I mean the thing is, it's when it came to my hair. I did this for me. I wanted to I knew if I had hair my whole life. I would get it back first and foremost, but second that I would. That something was wrong for this to happen. Because you know you're born, healthy, born as a perfect human, and so as a perfect human, we have the ability to support our body. As something was off for me for this tab for the hair loss. Happen at of quote, unquote nowhere. Nowhere Razz I start analysed my pass even when I was in my mother's stomach during pregnancy, I can see little things that could have been better a little things that could have been a helped, but at the same time there's no pointing fingers. It's more or less like once you know better, you do better. Let's move forward and let's get on it. Did you know that many of us have symptoms of toxin overload in our bodies, but we don't even know it. Signs of a toxic overload could be headaches. Fatigue, insomnia skin issues like acne and psoriasis and hormonal imbalances, and the list just keeps on going, but the problem. I had and I'm sure many of you have had is. How can you know how well you're managing your toxic risk? That's why I've put together a free toxic risk assessment. The will help you discover what products might.

This is the easy button for finding the right products to shop for. These are the products I've been using in my home and the products I. Give My stamp of approval on. Take your free assessment now at Amy Carlson Dot Com to get on the path of detoxing and cleansing your health. When you're working with clients, both in both worlds what? You're that that type? A personality you know, just go in dive in. Let's let's do it all and so am I, but boy. There's a whole lot of people out that are not. They need little baby steps. You know just kind of Eke in. Do you think that the key is to get them some sort of result right away so that they're more in tune to try to make that next right choice. I think the key with that is to hold their hand so for example I've this year I initially started a two month program for alopicia Angel and so in two months program. You have eight weeks in each week. I hold your hand and we go through size information that you can implement on a weekly basis, so you're in a facebook group. Were in a group together prior to the group starting though we have a coaching call, so I go through all your particular information all your particular concerns questions in this type of thing, because everyone is different, you know you you have show. Twenty years old. The other person might have allocation. They're five at soak away. You deal with is very different, but in any case after that then we move forward and I make sure I checked up on them I'm kind of the mother bear looking after everybody making sure everyone's integrated not leaving anyone behind and then ensuring checking up on a weekly basis, but at the same time. Time there's no overwhelmed because I remember when I was going through the Pizza I was overwhelmed just the thought of having to to do list which with her work, had brain fog ahead. Digestive issues had fatigue. I had dry skin. Dry is so there's many more elements going on. Just beyond the hair loss Zyppah the fashion, the emotions the anxiety. All these other symptoms were there. But once you get it in check than all these symptoms go away, and so and then once you heal. They completely go away, which is phenomenal and so it it's really holding their hand letting them know that it's GonNa. Be Okay. Get them through the dark and into the light, and so by week four. I've seen so many. Changes in. People who have PC universality, which is completely bald, no eyelashes, no hair anywhere on their body and four weeks. They're already seen hair growth on their arms around pits on their legs, and this is the first in five ten fifteen twenty years that they've had hair, and they can't believe it you in their voice by the first week that we speak to the eighth week, so after the eight weeks they start to giggle there smiling. The whole persona has changed because a I believed. Believed in that even though when they didn't believe in themselves right, and then you help them, you help them be disciplined, and then you get them over the Hump and they start to see that their bodies changing those bowel movements are a lot easier to pass their not having anxiety, their exit going away. Their psoriasis is so much better. There has healed. Their acne has left the house. I mean there's so many things to died in lifestyle. That again were not taught in. International Relations I didn't study nutrition ever and I had to you know. Kind of disarm myself and be a student. All over getting relearn everything relearned. In my own path because I knew what the government was telling me in what I had thought was good, health was not working. It was not working ahead thirty five years of results of Randolph. Right right, but even though they're, they're not good. Results are still results to tell us well. This is probably not how we want to do at right on. So many of us that debt have this voice in this community that there are holistic ways that there are ways to reverse and heal the body. Even when we're being told that's not the case. I love love love that and so you talk about Alopicia, being hairdressing tie I think there's two different kinds of allegations one where that's Tony Actually. ME, many Alopicia area, which is, it starts with the little bald spot in this ball can grow into more bolts, ops Oregon just. Take over it. You take you over to bald. which would be the next step would be allocation Tallus, which elevations hotels is bald head, but you still have your eyebrows. Your eyelashes in your body hair alopicia universality has no hair anywhere. Not even even your nostrils nothing. Yes you have think about the duty that that does for you. You know keeping toxicants out of even getting into the lungs in the first place off. Wow I didn't realize. There's many levels almost you know just like in a cold, a cold to bronchitis to pneumonia. There's different levels of a cold. Name thing with with Allah PJ. You have scarring Lakisha, which is where? The follicles essentially are dead, and supposedly they're not supposed to are there. You're not able to regrow hair. You Have Aga, which is Andrew Genetic allocation, which is female pattern baldness, which essentially the crown area is affected now even with clients who have aj I still see good results. They still see the hair growth. They speak. They still see the changes in so. Depending who you speak to many what you're what you're reading you. May you know there's a lot of people who say alopicia Has No cure or Aga? Has No cure or Scarring LBJ has no cure and I'm in the bandwagon that watch me, I'm GONNA make changes. theory resolved Andrew Geno. In I tell everyone I'm not a Unicorn. This is not like I'm not the lucky one. This is me and all my clients me and anyone else who wants to change diet and lifestyle who are committed to that, and not just for you, but from here on in so you're a hundred and thirty years old rhino here until the end of your life. Not You changed and you'll see volts. You see better health and today more than ever. I'm in better health than I was five ten fifteen twenty twenty five years ago. All out is absolutely and you guys I know in in our social media platforms. We put up clips. You know, so you will. You will see Joanna with all had a currently beautiful beautiful hair, so she's absolutely speaking the truth here so in in for hairless for women, especially and I can't imagine children you know it does such an area of life wear you know bullying and wanting to fit in, and you know just the whole mental aspect of losing your hair. Is that like a whole `nother level to this, isn't it? It is a I mean. The emotions are definitely confusing. A. UPS announced I was never one to to really feel depression too often or anxiety or any of this, but it it shook me. Having Alipio definitely shook me and perseverance resilience had to I had to overcome this, and so going back to a mental mindset. Having a mental toughness speak is is necessary believing that you can heal i. believe is the first step just like Henry Ford said whether you believe you can't or you can on your. Your right, and so you need a forward and so I I hope I am cheerleader. This is my goal. Right to be the cheerleader to motivate people to want to heal from themselves, because I can lead you to water, but I can't make you drink Ryan so right I can feature the information and I can hold your hand for eight weeks, but you got still do the word done. Get out there and make it happen. I love that. I was I was looking into the the information in I what I saw was that there? There's over six point eight million people with Allah patient in just the United States alone. It is number. Yeah, this isn't something that's rare or anything like that, so talk to me about. What would be kind of like your top three tips? So if this is something that is affecting you in your life? What are the top three things that you can do now right now and make a difference in your life with this? Top three things. Well. That's a that's a lot. The thing is it's very holistic in nature, and so you have one under the spectrum, so for example I have clients who are make sure I have clients who are personal trainers there extremely fit. They do cross fit you know. They lift weights, and they have ads to show for it, so you have that end of the the one ended spectrum, and then on the other side of the you have people who have. Much more ailments issues beyond Alopicia they're obese potentially, and then you have people that are midway that are not one way or the other, but they're just kind of like the average regular. person who just got alopicia out of nowhere and so each. Each piece of advice would be different, but in general on General Way, I would say. Say. How about you? How? How about we take the average person and I don't. You know I'm GonNa Challenge, this 'cause What you just said was they got alopicia out of nowhere and I would say it's. Not Out of nowhere in that's going to pertain to our next set of questions that let's just take that average person because that's probably who's listening to us right now. Okay okay perfect so I would say A reach out to me I mean. I. Thought. May. Agree consultation, first and foremost, but beyond that I would say look at vitamin D three vitamin D three is your immune system and I, I it high amounts of vitamin, d three, and you know coming from California because originally, from California I lived in Miami and I was always in the sun. You know the darker, the better I, always wanted to be darkened. And so I spent lots of time in the sun, and so naturally my vitamin D was always up. ever since I was a kid. And so I see a difference. A lot of my clients come from. Northern States Minnesota New York Canada. British. Columbia New Netherlands the UK. Potentially Australia because in Austrailia. You have the ozone layer that's over them in, so they have really high skin cancer rates, so no one really wants to be out in the sun in so. Wherever. You had a lack of vitamin D. Three. I noticed this a lot Ali. That's interesting, too. I feel relation is see you know. What I'd like to say is the LPGA is like a puzzle in so I? Take all these pieces in when I when we talk, let's say one on one then I can put the puzzle pieces together, and a lot of is nutrient. Deficiency a lot of it can be stress. It can be one thing or another depending. How old this person is in what they've gone through. So it just all depends, but I'd say There are a lot of key factors that were not looking at you. Know Diet, of course one of them, not more than likely. Gluten. Grains and dairy needs to be taken out so that's a big one and you know in. A lot of times I say, lay off the cow. Offi just at least for you know goods months layoff coffee alcohol. Just because it's not, it's not serving. You well I mean even though doctors say having a glass of wine is okay, not right now. It like trying to. Trying to have wine or coffee when you have pneumonia. These are not two things that you would you know? For so I I like to erase. So it's almost like when you have pneumonia when you have bronchitis when you have like a deep flu, let's get you back to normal. It's gas leads heavy hat. She can sue BRA. You know rest. Take your vitamins vitamin C this type of thing. So I have this is how I. I kinda correlate it where it's like when you have LP, you can't do your normal things. You need to rest repair reset, and then you can take off. It's a process. It's not overnight, so this is why I see resulted in two months because two months I'm dedicated to you. You're with me and you know you're under my arm and we're going end so I. Walk You through all this. I like that rest repair, and what was the last one? Reset reset I like our computers. In our law in our electronics, we need to reset. We have to update and reboots and a lot of times. We don't do this. I mean I see a difference between I live in Europe so I see a difference between the Europeans and Americans right because I I, too, was only given two weeks vacation a year or ten days. If that and you're trying to make Memorial Day weekend a little longer, you're trying to make Labor Day weekend a little longer, and that's not enough dryer. They're five weeks here granted almost like six seven weeks. It's amazing work life balance is. On Point on point, it really is they valued family. They valued family time. They value being out in nature they value. Good food they value. Quality time with friends. They value so many things that I'm sure we value to. We just don't make it a priority. Why do you think that well first of all? Before I get into this next question, one of your key things in your your three things to do to get a hold of you, so tell the listeners how they can get a hold of you if they want to work with you because your system is going to work with more than just alopicia right if you have any autoimmune disease, your system is going to work with that. Is that correct? Absolutely I actually have started. Incorporating clients have reached out to me because they want to heal their eggs, emma or psoriasis or even I have two people in my program right now. That are just looking for weight loss and having to get their hormones, and and and just kind of like get all those ailments that are pasturing or festering that they've been. You know kind of looking after with a pharmaceutical or some over the counter drug. They want to take all these things out in kind of reboot and. I mean this is necessary especially. If you want to have kids especially if you want to take care of utility if you're at an age because that's another thing, no one's talking about is how damaging breath choke can really be for fertility in then you think it off the pill, and then all of a sudden it's. Your pregnant, and then Lo and behold. You're not pregnant, and you need a good chunk of time to reboot that system to fortify the nutrients in to do so many things. You know it's heartbreaking to hear I have friends who who are in their twenties who are in their thirties early thirties. Mid Thirties and forties everyone everyone wants to have children. At least my friends do, and they've all had problems, and it's beyond just the miscarriage. It's it's. Fertility issues having to go through IV at twenty nine. It's this type of thing. Where why is this happening? And potentially? It's because we shouldn't be on birth control early on in life. Potentially we should revisit what this really means not to take anyone's rights away. We all have a choice of course, but we also have to be cognizant that it's a pharmaceutical that it's disrupting our Amazon minutes non abandon its abandoned for whatever's going on synthetic. It's a synthetic in our body does not recognize synthetic in a being. Put into it I would. Also, I've done a lot of podcast on birth control, fertility issues and I can also tell you, too that birth control. When your normal cycle is disrupted and we changed that what what Mother Nature is telling us to do? That's not right, and and it's going to cause problems so many people will do those shots that you take your periods completely away on that tasting thing. Don't want that. You know I just don't want to mess with you. Know type of thing. It's not even necessarily for birth control as as it is so much that they don't WanNa. Have the cycle and. Does blows me away because that that is so wrong and then I would also suggest to and I wanted to talk about this because it is the toxin terminator. I really believe that. There's a lot of products that we're using every single day. That are absolutely affecting our bodies. Were putting things on our body in our body that are totally disrupting our system. A hundred percent I I truly believe that in the more I do my research, the more I started seeing that. We continue to fall short, so I'm a huge proponent of the environmental working group. Just found out about your label project and they were scanning protein powders, and they were scanning Sunscreen, even sunscreens that according to WG are. Good one to in a green light. They're still finding amounts of lead high amounts of heavy metals in the sunscreens in baby formula. Just unregulated CBD's unregulated and they also have high amounts of lead ballets and plastic, and only other components into a so you think you're taking something you're not, and it's. It's scary to think and. There's. Much more toxins in the you ask that in other parts of the world. CBD. Is You know one that? I did a lot of research on when it was? You know I coming out in the cannabis itself. It is designed. I can't remember what the word is for the type of plant it is, but it goes in and cleans up the soil. It's grabbing everything out of the soil in polling it into the plant, and that's why it's so so important. If you're going to go into any kind of cannabis treatments, if you're going to go into kind of CBD oils or any of that that you really know your sourcing of where it's coming from. From in their farming practices, because if they're not have good farming practices, you're actually doing more harm to your body than you are good same thing when we take supplements. If we don't have a whole foods based product that we're taking that has synthetic senate. It's not just that you're peeing out and you're wasting your money. You're actually GONNA. Develop more free radicals in your body. You're doing more damage than you are good. Is that your experience to? That makes sense that makes total sense especially what you're saying with the cannabis plant because. Clear Project Label Dot Org, which is DENVER, Colorado Day that one of the worst protein powders is hand though for any of you ends are vegetarians out there that love heme protein. They're saying that this is the worst. This is the one that they found as the most amount of lead in it. Yup, optics. Yeah, I'll have to look. There's a word for this type of plant in in cannabis is not the only one. One but like cannabis would be an excellent one for farmers to put in their field inbetween doing like a corn soy rotation because it's GONNA clean up the soil for them. I mean it's a cleaning plant. That's what it does. What it was designed to do is just pull all of those toxicants out of the soil I. Wish I could remember the name off the top of my head, but it's like Oh my word. vegetables how they clean. Meet your liver. Colon and everything comes out all the sludge. Yeah, yeah, get it out. Get it out, and and there's there's good and there's bad I mean it's good to clean up the soil, because even though we've got organic arms, you know if they're right next to a non organic farm. Guess what you know it's. It's like this double edged sword. I really liked what you were saying about your living in Europe now and the whole idea that they've got five weeks. You know of of vacation and the the lifestyle is just so different. Do you feel like? Are you hearing from people with? What's been happening in our world over the last couple months where people have been forced to slow down that they're kind of re assessing. Maybe we didn't need to be involved in all of these activities, or maybe you know there's there's merit to this slowdown. Are Not. You know here in the Netherlands. Their approach was a little more easygoing and nonchalant, also that nonchalant you going which you know in a way is nice because I, don't feel like the tiger changed in. Rocks. I talked to my family California and they still feel like animals that are caged in same with my friends in Miami, but here in the Netherlands I feel like essentially life has gone on round. One wears masks. No one is really wearing. Gloves except maybe at the gas station at the supermarket. It's actually more crowded there than in the outside market edge. You have in Europe you on a Saturday more. So, it's a little different and in the area where I am in the Netherlands It's actually quite calm into small town, so it's not like going back home to la La's a different animal. Yes, it is! It's very different and. I Look here and that I'm exposed to a slower pace of life, and sometimes you know there was resistance actually for my hand when I first moved here. 'cause I like the be busy. Go go go beat, productive, one hundred percent of the time and. I think when we're indoctrinated to be this way. It takes a while to really unplugging. Cut The cord, and so once of horse to. It was almost like a shock to my by like what is this? What is what's Free Time? What is? What is time? I remember going with a coach and she's like i. want you to take a bath and just relax light a candle if you need to, you know on read a book if you want to, but I just want you to at at at the end of every day to take a bath because I've always been on the high wire. Levels and I remember sitting in that bathtub gone okay. I got this this this I could not sit in it or even five minutes. You know it was like. Get me out of here this night. One and it's not relaxing to me because I have. My Mind's going on all those things that I needed to do now today much different story. What you can find me, but it seriously is training. Meditation is another thing. How did you do when you first started dating? I, probably, the worst meditation I'm probably the worst at it 'cause I. I still get. Yeah Monkey Mind is just Howard, but I think just like anything. It's training and know just like you can train your children to like Broccoli to light cauliflower into like vegetables. We can also train them into doing more yoga and meditation really comes after Yoga and essentially that's what Yoga was created for to do the strenuous workout, and then to lay down in pose and really. Take in all the sensations that your body your mind everything has just done all and see the progress, and so a lot of meditation comes after a Good Yoga. Workout. But just to sit there. Out of nowhere is a little hard especially when I'm not close to the Ocean I. Love Being in nature I'm in major here, but it's a little different I love you know coming from California, I'm just used to the ocean Miami the fame. Miss that, so no human waves, even if it's from Youtube and I can hear the waves, it's a little different. I love that and I I. Have People Talk to me all the time I'm like meditation I'm telling you even if you just do five minutes a day is it's your time to really get in touch with your body? Because our bodies talking to us all the time. It isn't always sending US messages and the problem that most of us have as we don't hear it. We ignore it in Wirthlin. Were not hearing it? You know and so on if we can just even take that five minutes a day to really start feeling, and and and falling into what our body is in energy it's it's amazing and I I I remember okay or art back to breathing. You're just that monkey brain I love our. You're still right, though it does take time in. Yeah it's it's amazing. The benefits that come out of meditation even just to sit quiet or even just you look at the clouds, and revert back to when we were children, and we would be in the grass and looking at the clouds. Different shapes, and even something small like best brings back more relief reduces the cortisol levels, and so there's many ways to meditate many ways to reduce stress, and so in my programs, or in my a speaking engagement I. Try to offer multiple wise. You have to meditate like a boot. Notice more options. And the. People need to hear that message. You know loud and clear. You know there's no right way to do anything at your way. What did you results because every body is has a different body, and so your way of doing things is going to be a little bit different. There's some key factors that we WANNA put into all of it right. But certainly to modify it to your lifestyle. Modify to you know your body and what it's telling you I love love love that, so we're coming to the end of our time together Joanna been such a such a delight in.

I'd say try to be an advocate for yourself. the parents who come to me. They're they're really strong. In in the advocate for their children I love that they look for more than just what the dermatologist says. They look for more than just what the homeopathic says. Look for more than just what Google says and so. I would say advocate for yourself if you know deep down. If you have a feeling that what they're telling, you is wrong or or is not working with you in your allies. Find a way there's another way I had no roadmap personally, and I figured out a way, and it granted it took me two and a half years, but this is why I want pave the way for others, because it's not that hard died and lifestyle changes just need to be relearned, and once we get into the hang of things than it's kind of like you're healthy merges you floor issues. Issues Thrive, and this is what my desire is for everybody because you know if I were to look back as a nine year old. If I were to look back as a twenty five year old, my health wasn't great at nine or at twenty five, even though there was a lack of disease, and just because there's a lack of disease doesn't mean you're healthy writing something really and so. For example no-one. no-one taught us nutrition, and so the only way to to do this and to move forward is to really advocate for ourselves to. unlearn many things to relearn into be open to it to be students of life and the more open.
