C. two year programs can do but we're gonna talk a lot of college basketball with one of my faves a guy that knows the big ten inside out he's a producer hi he's been out here in Vegas for a long long time loves his golf clubs is gambling loves sports gaming loves handicapping yeah you know he's pretty sharp as far as getting some of those features out there doesn't matter really what sport it is but really college basketball college football and the NFL like myself and I I really think that Matt enjoys the college sports as much as anybody we've always had fun going back and forth during the seasons and great to have him here you can follow him on Twitter at Matt Youmans Y. O. U. M. A. N. S. twenty four seven at Matt Youmans twenty four seven and the reason the twenty four seven is there is because the guy lives in Vegas first off and if you know match schedule you know him and Adam hill they used to do a show here that started at midnight because Matt Youmans is a freaking night al I mean when it says like you know back in Louisville when coach Macy UC riverside we made it to the elite eight and coach Macy's get up early to go practice what am I doing I'm coming in and I was like five in the morning there we stayed out all night partying with the central Missouri state with the mule mascot and we're drinking Jack Daniels and doing shots in the in the parking garage for the love of god talking college basketball I'm going up there and and coach Macy's just get ready to go out and open up the gym to get ready with the the team but Matt Youmans has a schedule like Katie used to he's never gonna grow up this is Peter Pan at his finest Matt Youmans sports X. radio great to have you pal yeah I don't know about the Peter Pan reference Katie it's good to be back on Medicaid on that's right we had a sports betting show on the seven twenty here about ten years ago at midnight and I was the Las Vegas sports line I think I would cater movie the greatest AM station on the west coast of Maine I remember we have listeners I would say from at least twelve states and I know you do at this time of night as well it's good to be back on here the the voice of lance pride your little leads up on them we're gonna talk some college hoops right there you go that's right then you know the baby shark stuff when it's as we H. ours of course we love Jerry Tarkanian the the truth shark here in Las Vegas one of the best in the business on that did you get the the the book though that Danny Tarkanian put out rebel with a cause I have not received it yet I'll check it out at some point or no Danny he's a good guy and you know if I if I make a list of top marks Tom David characters in the history of sports Acadians on that top five was no doubt about it but I I had the fortunate to have a chance apart talk to a park many many times are covered you I'll be basketball and I I used to call her mom I was putting together a list of the top one hundred a U. L. B. players of all time yeah we rate them and I used to call part to you know talk about old rebel stories and part but the specific players yeah he was he was awesome motor carriers got so many stories any so called reform when he tells them I do think he's one of the five greatest characters in the history of sports you know Matt I remember you know being back east and hanging out with my great uncle in Brooklyn was a big time basketball coach and my dad love college hoops as well but you know we're St John's guys we watch St John's and Seton hall was north Jersey they were okay you know back in the corner second days early on and I I just remember that every now and then when the hard way and this is before your time but the hard way with Theus in Gondo and and Robert Smith you know hopefully Roberts doing better because we know he had a stroke in seventy six seventy seven and and remember C. and you know those those gray and red uniforms were going like I'm like oh cool man the team from Vegas is on like it was just it was just a cool thing and Tarkanian even back then was just that guy that was a freaking character man I mean and and we just we look at this guy wouldn't get to see him that much because it wasn't cable and every now and then is like in USC football game for me back in Jersey we get U. N. L. V. basketball as a double header gave like a late game would be like all cool you know these on and I remember watching what about you in the Midwest do you remember ever getting to see yeah yeah I was in college at the time and you know those big Monday and you know he was on that weight came almost all the time and we we used to love to watch rebels in college of those my second favorite team aside from the campus of local time but hello do you wanna leave basketball and you think back to Larry Johnson Stacey R. Berman are great those teams were and and it's it's amazing that you'll be bass was declined so much of the past twenty five years but you know that that was a that was a great time and Las Vegas there was a great team and Kenny I'm sure you have a chance to get to know those guys a little bit I had a chance to talk to art when Larry Johnson get to know those guys and yeah I was a teenager I realized at the time you know I was in college watchman Schiavo Babs probably my favorite college basketball team M. you know the rebels in nineteen ninety one yeah that was fun now what an incredible team should have those two titles back to back this year your grade on TJ otzelberger and the first season there because it started out you know to where we looked and said I this team struggling they can't win decent it nonconference games and then add a couple of back to back overtime losses to Kansas state in cal and said all right you know let's see how they do conference play got off to a great start but then came back to earth but then closed really strong to finish twelve and six inside the conference I thought that was solid you know he was short handed sometimes and there were some players that you know panned out others that didn't I we all thought that Tillman coming over from Utah was going to be a bigger shot in the arm but you know I look at Jenkins coming in next year but what about this year your grade for coach T. J. otzelberger in the ribs no it's interesting because you hear a lot of people in the the kind of celebrated rebels one twelve and six in the mountain west of this here because that's best of the rebels are drawn and conference in a long time we're just talking about you L. B. teams in nineteen ninety one those teams one sixty nine and six combine those two years so so so much time to change but you don't I think also burger didn't decent job this year not a not a great job but I like I think user gets a promise there's definitely some optimism around you it'll be basketball but the problem is you know can you recruit at a high enough level to take it to the next level and that's no college basketball right now is a little bit in a little bit of chaos journey because we don't know what's gonna happen with the NFL draft some of the NC double where's your boat at some point rule at some point whether or not the the winter in the spring sports can match for years some of the college seniors might give an extra year of with college basketball which I think would be great when when you take the proceeds away it's hard to season didn't count you know there are up to like the senior supported this year why not give them an extra year that would be the right thing to do the NC double a rarely does right turn but we'll see what happens can can he J. outward to recruit at a high enough level I think you should be able to you know a large image through young's along drive since his reelection bid to relaunch absence at the end of the season he was instrumental man he shot you know around fifty percent from the field average star six seventeen and a half points a game when the rebels were want five M. one there down the stretch and they wanted San Diego state obviously you know he came up with an injury at San Jose Alaska's season did not play in the mountain west tournament doubles got bounce a little surprise I didn't think they were to win that game against Boise state without him it was a play making guard unlike the other guy who's basically the majority of the key to your success in the last month or last few weeks of the season it's or to adjust on the fly that was a surprise to the rebels could beat sorry we'll see what happens your two year three but I I I think there are some reasons for optimism with you it'll be best to but you know we said that before and we've been disappointed so it's our job I hope you're doing too high here are starting to get a pretty good young coach and he should do pretty well the next couple years it's amazing to me how can that be in the last twenty years you will be has not won a regular season conference championship can you believe that now it is surprising no doubt about it but I do but I will say you know what he did get that signature win we look for nonconference wise and he really got it against San Diego state because it's one thing to beat San Diego state maybe in the conference tournament or here at Thomas and Mack but to get them at the VA I center you know that is a tough place to win WWW was up fourteen point underdogs you know on the road and once I came sixty six sixty three in San Diego public huge win for the program I think a lot of people needed that PJ out's burger I needed that a lot of people are still like job probably have a little bit more faith in the direction he's heading after that one of San Diego state you know what rebel Serbs tomorrow pretty good performances is here near one I think you have to give him I'll probably give a B. plus your own suburban so you gonna be a tough grader baby you deserve a minus but regardless it's he's not gonna be judged are you know near one it's gonna be about years true story or when he gets his own players and businesses program and we'll see how it goes I think we'll do pretty well three years at South Dakota state we know the jackrabbits always atop the conference there in the summit league in fact they'd won the conference tournament had their leading scorer not gone out of prior to that tournament but that program has been very solid since gotten a he had it who's now right state many has a baton doctor Berger and TJ's teams thirty nine percent to forty and a half percent I think just under forty two percent from behind the arc in his three years there that's the type of teams that he likes he likes to have at least three guys that can knock down the Tripoli likes to spread the court Jenkins will be there he follows the coach and had to sit out this last year your take on that style of play in the mountain west because we've seen Utah state and they had Maryland company that the big guy underneath I think this I think you can work here in this conference to to spread things out we saw you know Nevada do that at a high level under Musselman the battle did that at a high level actually San Diego sees up to three you look from our charts when all the big stories he had and you think about the brands of pet aspects team went on a lot of cards issued by the three point shot that's what college basketball is to the Jenny last week CBS show those reporters of a past national championship games this is weird what's nineteen eighty two and the North Carolina Georgetown the results.

I was a senior in high school at the time. Eighteen years old. Okay and where were you living so I was living in redlands California at the time which is in southern California. It's what's known as the inland empire Near San Bernardino Riverside and I was living with my mom in an apartment in Actually a nice part of town and I understand that your your appearance had recently divorced so it was kind of a new situation with you and your mom being just by yourselves right it was it was the first place that she and I moved to when my mom and dad split up and so we hadn't been in the apartment for very along. I don't know exactly how long but you're right. It was a fairly new situation. I was going to high school at redlands. High School and Yeah my mom was working full-time all time. She's a very busy career woman and she was also in law school at the time. But yeah that that this was a fairly new situation for us and did you have in the area where you were. Obviously I'm in Florida. I have never been to to that area. Did you have any safety concerns at all about that area. That neighborhood not at all I mean I. I never even thought about not being safe at all. Redlands in general is a pretty safe town. There are bad parts But we're the apartment was it was sort of On the South side of redlands tour to sort of near Loma Linda and It's a good area. It's a very nice apartment complex. Very clean I think a lot of like single professionals. We're living there at the time. This happened at nighttime. It was around eight o'clock so it was after dark. Can you take us through what happened that night. Yeah so it was like you said it was around eight o'clock in the evening I wanna say it was a week night I want. My mom reminded me later that it was my dad's birthdays which would have been June. Oh Gosh now. For a June twelfth of Nineteen Ninety six X so whatever day of the week that was and it was dark and my mom was in her room studying. I think she was studying for the bar exam at the time and I just remember it was a warm summer night and I remember going into her room and just kind of said. Hey Mom I'm gonNA run across the street I took my car to grocery store. There was estate brothers literally just right across the street said I'm going to grab a few things she says. Okay see later so I got in my car. I went to the store I was there for. Maybe maybe fifteen minutes My mom remind to be later of what I bought and she kind of made fun of me about these stupid at the time there were these sort of wedge like flip flops ops that were made of this foam material. I know that sounds awful but this is the nineties and stater brothers. Sold them so I went across the street to go get those and who who knows what else but anyway I was only there for a few minutes. I drove back to my apartment. I entered the apartment complex. I didn't think about it until later but there was a car right behind me. At the time I could see the headlights but that could have just been anybody entering the apartment complex behind me. Was this gated community so you had to put a coat in or just I want to say that there was one of those sticks the security kind of like you know arms that raise up after you. You put your coat in so I had done that and I don't remember if this person behind me you know as we often do you just roll in you know in front of the absorb if you're in back of somebody who just rolling without putting in a code have done that so I came in and you know. The parking lot is very standard looking for an apartment. It's a bunch of parking spaces faces. Some of it's covered some of. It's not you know when you rent an apartment at these apartments you know you have maybe one or two assigned spots that are covered that under sort of near your apartment and Before I pulled into our assigned parking spot I went over to the community mailbox. And it's a mailbox that we all share. You know you put your key and and there's a bunch of mailboxes and so I checked my mail at the time I was checking my mail. I just remember there were headlights behind me. It was dark outside outside and you know headlights on a car very bright so it's sort of caught my attention. It was sort of distracting so I turned around and I noticed that it was a white and gold or white and beige of four door. Lexuses a very nice car and I just noticed it. I just sort of looked not for any reason other than the lights. Were really bright right and I noticed there was a man sitting in it No big deal. I just thought this is somebody who probably lived at the apartment. I continued getting my mail. Got Back into my car. You're pulled around to. The left is a little bit and parked in my assigned parking spot and so I'm sitting in the driver's C.. You know parked my car. Turn the engine off off and I am gathering the mail which I had put in the passenger seat. I grabbed all the mail and I looked out my window My windshield and and I saw a man walking right in front of my car with both hands in his pockets and he was glaring into my windshield looking at me and he. You gave me a very weird feeling. I mean it wasn't one of those things. Where oh he's just glancing over and looking at you and then he goes about his business? He was glaring into the car and it was weird. It may be feel weird but you know. I don't know if it was because I was a naive teenager. Nothing bad had really ever happened to me. Nothing super traumatic in my life so I just gathered my mail and this is before cell phones were popular may be cell phones existed. But I certainly didn't have one. Maybe if I did did it would've called somebody but maybe not so I get out of my car. I lock it and where he was walking in front of my car so my car is parked in in the assigned parking so directly in front of my car. If I'm looking out my windshield I can see a sidewalk. That is running a horizontal to my car. So Oh he's walking on that sidewalk in front of my car so when I get out of my car he you know is still walking so when I by the time I get out of my car and I get onto the sidewalk and start walking. He's now directly in front of me and he's about I don't know fifteen feet in front of me not too far. And he's continuing to walk with both hands in his pockets and I'm behind him and I just kind of brushed off the glare and thought. Okay let me just walk to my apartment. No big deal so he continues walking thing now as you continue walking on the sidewalk it comes to a bit of a fork or why it looks like a why so you can either continue walking straight which is one part of the Whi- which is where he was going or you can veer off to the left to the other part of the the. Why and that's where my apartment it was so he and I were so he was walking straight? When I got to the section where I needed to turn left? He still in front of me. I start walking left toward but my apartment and I noticed that you know he had nowhere to go. If you continue walking straight on that sidewalk that he was walking on in front of me. You eventually are going to get to somebody's door. Who Lives in the apartment? Somebody's apartment door and so that's what he did. He went and he walked as far as he could and he stopped basically on their doormat. Ormat right in front of their door almost as if maybe that's where he was going the whole time maybe he knew these people or maybe lives there or maybe he lived there exactly but And I knew I didn't know the people who lived there but I had seen them coming in and out and my first thought was don't think he knows those people it just. I know that sounds so weird but in my mind I was like. I don't think he'd knows those people but okay. He's standing at their door. Maybe he's GonNa Knock and maybe he does know them. I continue veering to the left now. From where he standing facing their front door to his left is about a five or six foot hedge Like bushes so in other words as I continue walking to the left he standing at those people's front door as I continue walking toward my apartment. Eventually we're not going to be able to see each other anymore because at this hedge was a pretty tall hedge so I got to that point. I kept walking on the sidewalk toward my apartment apartment. He's standing in front of those people's door and I could no longer see him but something in my mind told me that I needed to turn around and see if if he had backed up to still where he could watch where I was going because if he would have stayed standing in front of these people's front door he would have not seen scene where I was going. 'cause the hedge was blocking if he wanted to see where I was going he would have had to back up and come you know To wear a hedge was no longer in his way so something in my mind. I felt very strongly that he was following me and or that he wanted to see where I lived. Just something thing in my whatever red flag or gut instinct. So I did it. I turned around and sure enough. He had walked away from the front front door and he was standing there watching rows going. He wasn't walking he wasn't moving he was just peering just staring at me to see where I was going. An it was at that moment when I thought shit something is going on. He doesn't know those people. He was only standing at their door to wait. We know for me to walk past. He now he's come around the hedge and now he can see where I'm going and I just got a chill through my body and so at that point I didn't I wanNA. I wanted to run to my apartment and go inside and lock the door. But I didn't want to alarm him and make him aware that I'm aware that he's watching me so walked really fast but tried to walk not so fast to where it looked funny you know to not raise any red flags to him so I walked really fast I I was scared as hell and of course you know. It's almost like a scary movie when I got to my apartment door. There's two locks there's a deadbolt and then there's a lock on the door KNOB and my mom. Tom And I'm the same way to this day. My Mom's a lock freak. She locks every door always. I mean she does not leave a door unlocked ever no matter what time of day it is so I pull let my key I start to unlock the dead bowl. And of course it's like a scary movie it's like Oh gosh it feels like it's taking hours and so I got that one unlocked. doorknob lock lock unlocked. I went in my apartment. Shut the door really fast. Close the dead or locked. The dead bowl locked the other lock and I just stood there in my living room and unlike okay I'm safe. Even if he is watching me or following me he can no longer get me anymore and again. I'm a naive teenager. Nothing traumatic has ever happened happened so I didn't think I was in danger anymore. I thought I'm in my apartment. So even if he is a Weirdo. I'm good so this is a part of the story where I look back and I just think like Jamie would dip shit. You know you should have done something you should have said something. But I didn't. I basically went straight down a hallway into my mom's bedroom. She was still studying at her desk in her bedroom. And I just started to tell her what I had gotten at the store. We started having small talk and so it was a summer night. It was warm out. This is a rare occasion but on this particular night. My mom had her bedroom window open. So so the breeze would come through. But my mom is also a privacy freak. She doesn't like people looking in on her..

anyone had time to react to it and I almost didn't believe it when I woke up the next morning Monday morning I was I was furious and elaborate on that because I'm I'm thinking it must mean something different to someone like you who served in the Miller military and to your fellow veterans to betray an ally like that given the military culture right so I've been following what's going on nonstop for years and years especially since I've returned from Syria I mean this is only two or three weeks following you know the United States civil to persuade the Kurds in Syria to dismantle all their defensive fortifications along the border and so then and the Kurds were willing to do that because they do not want this war they're willing to do whatever it takes to prevent this war from happening and I may we had they had guarantees from the United States and so for the United States to for trump to set it to turn around two weeks later and say Hey we're actually gonna step away from the border I turkeys gonna come in and they're going to take over the area I I mean it it's it's crazy it is it's a betrayal have you been in contact with your Kurdish friends this week I yeah some of them yes there there distraught they they feel betrayed a lot of people actually have been telling the Kurds that this would happen you know like Kate United States a you know like why are you working with then why are you and the Kurds really hopes that it would be different this time the courts have been what time for they been abandoned many times throughout history and they hope this would be different and right now it's not looking that way we'll tell me more about your story in twenty sixteen you had already been back from the Middle East for almost a decade from your service so what inspired you to go back to Syria to help a Kurdish fighters in their battle against ISIS right so I always maintained an interest in the reason and the region following my my deployment to Iraq I knew the Kurds were when ISIS sprang up I was really following it closely in the media and I also proud of the Kurds were the people who were who were actually standing their ground fighting for their their homes and villages and towns and they were actually stopping ISIS from continuing to take over more territory and that's almost always not closely nor I called it the more I learn Alex Kurds and their democratic project you know they've implemented this new form of democracy that concentrates power community level they're very protective of ethnic and religious minorities and and they're really really pushing hard gender equality and women's rights which is huge in the region and and they they're making such incredible progress that I was just I was amazed I what they've been able to accomplish in the midst of a brutal civil war where they are surrounded on one side by ISIS and then on the other side by the hospital Turkish state and they were asking for help from abroad and they asked me to come in I have to go when you say you reached out how did you reach out how to how does one even go about doing this so I wasn't the first volunteer to travel to to Syria to help the Kurds many volunteers gonna help and so I I sort of just followed what I saw other volunteers that I've done you know and there were a lot of news articles where are these volunteers were interviewed and and ask the same question and so I just looked at their answers are found that there was a website at the time called dark lines of Rosado which was kind of not exactly recruitment page but it was a way to reach out to them and anyway so they had a kind of a process where you know reach out you you send essentially a resume you answer kind of a questionnaire to trying to kind of weed out and sat falling tears because they don't want to bring over a lot of nut cases after I reach out to them a week later they contacted me and and so they would like you to come tell me about your time over there what what were you doing initially I was actually doing a lot of our kind of civilian work I was teaching English I was helping at English translations of Curtis nervous documents I was teaching kids how to use computers lights help I was kind of consulting a radio station on what they would need to do and what equipment they would need to stream their radio station on the internet things like that but eventually I I joined a team of combat medics is composed of of other international volunteers like myself and there were times when we you know how to return fire but we weren't like a frontline unit you know kicking down doors and things like that we were really just trying to stay close to the front lines that we treat casualties what kind of close calls for example where we were staying like would change from day to day we're constantly from one is moving for each so a lot of times we would look for an abandoned house so like stay in for the night so one day I met Eric family told us so we can there is an abandoned house I know we can go we can stay in the house then they called isis and said Hey there's a bunch of white people in this house I spices sent but we we went to check out this house and decided it was not really defensible location and we left to stay somewhere nearby and then moments later and ISIS suicide truck came barreling through this village ran right up to this house and detonated so that was that was something this is probably exactly what your parents were afraid of right so in your time serving did your impressions of Kurdish fighters and Kurdish culture a change at all or did it just add to the impressions that had brought you back to the area in the first place yeah actually it's all there's a lot of the the research that I did there was a lot of misinformation and I was pretty I felt pretty validated when I arrived in in Syria and was working alongside the Kurds I did it I mean they were they were until I I so so many days your wife just felt welcomed by the fighters and by civilians I you know I was invited over for dinner when I was to instill in work I stayed people's homes for the night I and and and then when I was working with Melissa as you know that I would sit in circles with them sing songs laughs you know try to get through the language barrier I I will these people and and it was the you know one of my favorite things is actually working with the women's protection units and that's kind of the female like structure within the YPG you know these these girls a lot of our our teenagers and and that they're always smiling and if you talk to me asking what why why they're smiling whether happy they'll tell you they expected that they would live a life of servitude no servants their parents until are given in marriage not servants their husbands wrestler last and when the Syrian Kurds took control of marquee Syria and they started to implement this democratic project of theirs they pushed so hard for institutions that would guarantee women's rights I I mean they they are really just taking a giant leap to like modern standards of gender equality and women's rights and it's credible what do you say to people about your time there is there a moral to it that we could apply to other conflicts I can't assume for example in this instance I try and help Americans understand that our US involvement in Syria is nothing like US involvement in Iraq and Afghanistan you know those wars combined cost us forty five hundred lives and and cost us trillions and trillions of dollars and the outcome I mean it's like barely passable and whereas you know northern northeast here it's not a never ending war we were invited in by the Kurds who had already taken control of territory there and I had already created their own democracy we we don't need to democracy builder we're not trying to push democracy on people who don't want it they already did it for themselves it's a self build democracy in the Middle East like this is incredible we're not police in a hostile civilian populace we are not dumping money into their infrastructure this not nation building the people there want us there they're terrified that if we leave Turkey will invade as they are doing right now this is this is an incredible opportunity at a tiny fraction a tiny tiny fraction of the cost of other middle eastern conflict only required you know hundreds of soldiers on the ground as a deterrent to Syria and Turkey trying to you know conquer this democracy in northeast yeah I mean it was this is a golden opportunity and.
