"Carberry is there but davy russell is coming to the toilet his career and he has to recover from an injury as well and we still have to wait and see what what really is going to happen there. Because he was adamant appeared on the show not so long ago that he was going to be fit for cheltenham and detailed the rights he was going to have some of them. Which i don't think jack kennedy was aware of wasn't pleats by the way i'm going to be riding down here in the time. Fertile watts but it's interesting that the four of you have decided. Nah i'm not doing that. Just goes to show you how difficult it must be to be a trainer. I think i think probably when you've written for as many different trainings that we have and and seeing the The goes in as well. You know it's it's you know. I think this Lots of good trait very good trainers. Who is a whole. She's they know the They produced well but unfortunately they haven't got the good forces it's nfl. Go with deep pockets to to buy the right type of horses very very difficult. And i think i've probably passed nothing at my age. I'm probably two to That and you know it's it's probably a young minds game two to start to get involved but again it's it's just very very difficult. I think it off of good luck to all the all the young people that want to start trading and it's it's it's very rewarding when it goes right but i'll say this it's very difficult. You know you deal with owners horses staff and put it together so i think it's very difficult. My father in law john's Yeah he he. He's definitely trying to push me in that role either. He said he loved his time as a trainer. But he said he got hotter and harder towards the interviews created to financially. Make it make it work. Well hopefully ulan the breeding a horse and not just one twenty Who end up going for that silly amount of money. That's going around these days. That'd be fantastic. I have to get your thoughts on first of all irish summation of cheltenham. Because you were talking about being there. Oh yeah we got prizemoney. Money and rachel blackmore the grand national itself a for henry bromhead to train the one to it hasn't been done since. Nineteen eight no one has done the the grand slam to win the champion hurdle champion chase the gold cup and Gra national in a single season. I don't think anyone's actually won. The champion hurdle gold cup and national let alone the champion jas in a single season. We can't quite quantify how many fans will be brought to the sport by rachel's dominance and success at cheltenham and at aintree. But what is it that mark marks out as such a great joke because tactically. She just seems yeah. No look well. I think yeah both of had like a an unbelievable four weeks And is purely to both very very hard and rachel had to come up through the ranks. yet again. It is not easy for for for girls. I think it's it's yes. It's getting easier for girls to get the opportunities but it's still still hard work and you probably you know you you you you've really got to supreme yourself and i think it racing is fantastic. That they were only taken. It's taken awhile. And i'm not saying it's the again. It's still to work very hard. But actually they are level playing field and actually likes to katie nina kelly. Brian frost in rachel really sort of cemented. The fact that actually a they're just as good as as any man writing. And i think that's the most important thing is the way they ride rosalyn roz noting else. You know. that's that's that's the important thing But i think between henry and rachel. I mean they've hides enough to have the few weeks. How is incredible and off. See we were using the Definitely dominating things at a moment. I think that's i think it comes swings ryan support for nichols. Don't make things probably ten twelve years ago. And then yes. I received you know william henry. Now i would jessica harrington From going the the there's a big change of all ten years and hopefully that will change at some point but again financially at the moment is well with the horses. But there's a child himself or adobe sal Or the irish point point. Is you have to get bought privately. At the moment the irs seem to have the buying power to keep keep keep the best ones as well. That's the the the key is well you. You know you look into in a find. Find the best choices but also you need you need to the bypass that she keeps you get home as well so so you know. It's not. I think people Sudden jump on the You know off off the cheltenham. Everyone's trying to play this next thing. There's there's lots of different reasons that at the moment either i learned of the best best is not the that's black and white i think but That's that's that's the the main thing we need to try and Get that right over here. But at the same time i think yeah especially rachel. What she's achieved. is phenomenal. And it's got to be great for a racing And i think you know she is she. She's in the right place at the right time And she worked her way up from riding on a Again fifty to one shots on a intimate hurdle on on a wednesday sly. Go wherever else you know. She worked away up to roydon. You didn't witness at cheltenham festival winning national which literally Was incredible. you know. it's not like a family. A big audience or her family were a trading sort of establishment. Like the the mullins Cobb right so. I think you know she. She needs huge I think she usually well to to to get into this house and she deserves all the florida getting because she's the one doing nobody else Again you know she's doing things the right time. And that's that's all she could do You know i'd say between her and henry. They've they've stuck great relationship the you know. Why why why would we want to train by henry. The problem is and why wouldn't you want rachel that motorola and that's what you want people to think wanting a when i was really wanted people to to want to ride their horses because if they want you it it it makes everything sandwich easier if you're if you're if you're pleading people please Hardison yes. Someone said to me the other day Y y two people are asking me. Extra journalist and listener to the podcast were Onto me separately asking. Why did the pots take the horses away from him. Retirement and i said i'm not saying that over the phone and said the same thing to the the guy who tm is. I'm not saying that. I'm an imprint But i but i will. If i ever meet you at the racecourse and some time when all this lifts share the story with you and The this replied in their next door should have been called sizing stupid but it probably worked out well in the end for henry that it it meant that it wasn't just one owner that he was heavily. Reliant on that it meant that he could stand branch out Get to pick himself above the floor. But then go and do this and it's It's just a footnote in history new and it's fantastic. See what is this is probably something that the changes for you daily basis..

"How much you could save. Its gyco easy visit. Geico dot com today. That's geiko dot com quarterback. We are heading for the final thirty minutes of this program and the baseball weekend is upon us. And what a what a year. it's already been for. Sec baseball rocker and lighter are literally tearing it up for the commodores top team in the country. You decide okay. I mean it's just. I mean we knew kumar. Rocker was a great player from a couple years ago. That amazing game. He pitched in the playoffs and lighter. Of course the lineage. There is a spectacular. Who better to talk about it. Then kyle peterson who knows a little bit about great play himself and certainly the voice of college baseball on. Espn thank you very much. and i. i'm just going to sit back and put my feet up you talk about the vanderbilt pitching staff. Well we we could talk for a long time about that. It's it's pretty crazy when you look at. What kumar did a few years ago. I mean kumar came into college baseball. As if you've followed recruiting at all. You knew exactly what was he could have gone very high at a high school Obviously has a great press near. They win the national title. Easy mvp series and then here comes. Jack who same could could've signed is school decided to go to college and they're going to both on on the same staff This is kind of a pick. Whichever amazing stat you wanna find and there's plenty of them to find. There's been fourteen games this year. That either kumar jacket started for vanderbilt fourteen zero. Each one of the two of them are seven now. And i will tell you jack. Lighters hitter a few weeks ago And i believe my memory's not great. But i think it's the only no hitter ever had outside of like little league world series It is the best fastball in game consistently from the first at night. But i've ever seen. And i think that there's been a time when i've seen kumar pets to are the exact same thing about his breakable. The we're fortunate because there once in a decade type players at the collegiate level and vanderbilt has two of them right now. What's the risk of their staff. Look like it doesn't matter on thursday and friday. whatever they'll throw a first and second. I mean it's a pitching staff that's always going to be loaded about about stub rounded puts. Your coach is one of the best in the country. Quite honestly is if he wanted to could be a major league pitching coach And we've seen this. We saw this with wisconsin. A few years ago from arkansas. Who was a pitcher coach. Went straight to the twins. We're seeing it more at the major league level going and finding the best at the collegiate level but i mean like the pitching coach vanderbilt. You live in nashville. You got the best arms in the country coming in every game And scott makes them better and that's what he's consistently done so the balance of their stuff is very good. Obviously we we focus on kumar jack a lot just because of the numbers that they've had but when you look at at the the remainder of their staff is still really silent especially the back onto their bullpen. It's it's there's many reasons. Why vanderbilt is number one. But kumar and jack ladder probably reasons wonder what beyond vanderbilt. And if you're sitting out there in the hinterland and you pick up the rankings every week you jaws dropping but in just in terms of the separation between the top five schools in the sec. How do you know other than vanderbilt. How do you differentiate the rest. You know. I don't know it's it's a really good question. I think i think you could look at if you go. Arkansas old. This mississippi state tennessee was made huge shop in the last three years really south carolina florida. Those are the ranked team so you got two three four seven teams in the top twelve. Right now the sec. Any of those teams. You can make a very valid argument that they can make a run dole mohawk Now vanderbilt gets the leg up on everybody else just because they're so good the first two games of the series. There's plenty of other arms in this league. They're really good plenty of other in this in this league that are gonna get paid. Seven figures to sign are going to pitch bigly so to this point yes. Vanderbilt has been better than everybody else particularly. When when kumar rocker jack ladder throw at the same time. Arkansas's really good on the weekend. Ole miss one to governor hogan it's gonna be a first. Rounder dummy occasion can match up with everybody. Mississippi state may have the best staff just as an entirety pitching staff within the league. Right now. florida was preseason. The number one that everybody's i mean everybody's polling and tennessee. Now this weekend goes into a series against florida where the number sixty minute country and potentially could be to see two years ago. Tennessee made the tournament. Two thousand nine hundred. They have not been in the ncaa tournament since two thousand eight. When tony by telo got there. It was a massive turn around He's gotten tennessee. Back to really the the top level of college baseball. And it's just a another notch. And what the sec has as far as gov which is something about in the country. And i. i know it almost sounds cliche when because we've already had these conversations about how. How have the sec has gotten to this point but you know when you're that good You're you're you're playing each other. I mean there's no getting around But we all know how this is going to end up. don't we. I mean. I mean how many how many schools right now would you reject. We'll we'll advance. Yeah I mean i would say three i mean you you could maybe get one more you can maybe get one or two last quite honestly. I mean. Anything can happen in a short series. We baseball is a is a funky gamble. It comes to that because you can give me one nothing one nothing and you get knocked out of a series of ultimately pitch grade just didn't hit so it's just the reality of the game But i think three is probably that would be my main my over under number when it comes the put through. I mean i'd probably go vanderbilt. Arkansas miss right now state can really pitch. Offense has been okay. Tennessee just hasn't been there yet. It's not to say that they can't get there but but this group of guys really been a long time. Since he's been all florida highs all the talent the world just doesn't look right and i'll tell you south carolina south carolina started to or excuse me oh to leave And they're six and three right now so they're starting to really figure things out but i think i think three's about right Because here's the thing like with with kobe last year anybody that wanted to come back by lars. Come back and so what you find. Is that affects. Everybody and i think the mid majors have more quality players and they've ever had before and so when you get into a regional. It's teams that navy. Otherwise would get beat up as a regional goes on are going to have more depth than they did before and and so it wouldn't surprise me if we see more upsets them. We're not than we're used to seeing gills. But if i had to pick a number of. Sec teams. i put it at three right now. Final question on because their fan base is so passionate like so many others. But i get the question about lsu baseball and pulmonary and it. It almost seems ridiculous to be having this conversation. But what is your assessment of that program right. now we've had some bad baseball up Which which happens. I think losing jaden hills a huge loss. I mean he you know he was healthy. He was going to be a first round. Pick still probably going to go fairly high. I would hope Because the talent level is everybody will all time of giant so it misses the rest of the year. I think the challenge you think. Lsu right now from a starting standpoint outside of marceau was not a whole lot there right now at least proven the has been okay but it has been great and their officers really. Young talented dealing cruise is going to be a star. It's just a freshman trey. Morgan is going to be a star. It's just a freshman. So they're young in their key positions defensively and within that office of live Lsu's going to have to battle to get into the into its early and quite honestly they've already picked today. I don't know that they'd get in. But if you start one eight this league that you don't have any layup weekend and you you gotta win at least thirteen probably gonna win fourteen in the league unless you make a run at hoover to.

"National jonjo orgy. Just happy that. He's a good jon pearn and you're gonna leave it at that. Allow us to build them at both ends offensive year and demand was doing. This was ill that year. We didn't build any dougherty at. Don't push it on the national show. I haven't school lenny over national sentences percents whether that's right or wrong. I don't know but it worked that time. I think sometimes the often just just to Something new for them and fresh lucas. You know with regards to dine with you. Can't compare that both nice houses Clark cat wouldn't be as good a young horses. Don't push it good. The he'd be much lesser us. Iran india co. he was beaten. Helen does something by denman cheltenham and a novice chase a house really but this follows teams to be. He seems to have derived attribute for for this racy stage he was. He was ordained to scottish national. He joan swell touch wood so he's well in at the weights so eas chances this year in february and goes according to plan but as we all know what. The nationalist age editing. I said you know. He's been an absolute revelation. This year has improved for every single. Run what would you put that down. I don't know john This house he was a stronger. House will year-old dr. The plan was asked go for the national. Nothing went right and he wasn't handicap tie to get in so The like cape to take a role sometimes and he's just he just come good at the right time. Hopefully you've probably answered the question. I was going to say. When did this become the plan. Was it after the laborat- trophy that initiated that it was we're going to really have a go and protect his mock or was it before Trophy and and the season's been mapped around the national trend last year. Michelle mcqueen talking over order last year didn't happen and even then we will plan and go for the goal for the brooke them. That was a plan and then coming up to live doppler thinking he's gonna get into handicaps you know and Then he goes and wendy like he did. He went up not to get into the race and so we should leave a musical ground. Also we all know one lead in the komo and then industrial regained him. You know he then went to kelso we wanted to go to. Doncaster was a bit nervous as a ground. Basso little bit nicer ground kelso and thus we took toco. Chen's dare really. We weren't what you hustle. But i think if you all the hassle didn't really run to ma but he gave it really sweetly and giving right. Thomas wouldn't so here we are absolutely and this'll be. Thomas third spin on prophet cap. He's been they bill. Brilliant relationship this season and it started in the opera trophy. How come you decided that. Tom would ride him in an upper traffic energy. Only fash gonna get to do. And he was a good try. That was that was the reason was he. I'm sure he's delighted that you've cooled him that if he ever the moons at to have a ride likeloc gap in the grand national faithful to one favorite. He's he's an extremely short price but for a race light the grand national and the does not bits of pressure and i mean the national as we all know is a national and We're learning this and we're in it. Well he never get a chance again but having asked to go right. There's no doubt is is. The pressure is now on the hash. Rather than i can't do anymore until they get him safe and sound really. Listen what the of which have been. We're gonna like champ. Could he be brilliant for trevor as well. I think i think it will put in standing on his own is as an owner to win. Four four grand nationals. And how much how. Much how much how much. How often would you be speaking to him about cloth kathleen keeping him in the excited. And he's a great sportsman really and he loves to a nationalist. We all know you know to get another chance to run those. He's got two chances For this savers. that's the only in this. Make more excited. I gen greatly by the he is with alleged which show. We're going down full Telesis you know. Best of luck jerem. Once current of our strict ins allow if quote champs was to win the grand national state party upper jackdaws cosstalk just along as he puts up a good show and everything goes or called the sounders hours another day. You know while nuggets asia. And i wish you the very best block and and looked like like he said if it does come off. Don't don't forget are invited to the party all the days i get the sense that he's playing it down a little bit. I think with john you're neo. He's been there so many times as a rider on the on the big occasion and as a trainer the he's not gonna let himself get swept away with the sort of like cascade of support behind cloth cap and he's gonna play it down because he knows that anything can happen in a grand national and you can have all these stats and trends and you're fading before team pounds. Well in an ocean going over jump at the first knuckle over or get no luck in running or anything can happen josh on it so he just keeping it on the level but i'd say underneath it all. He's brimming with confidence going into the race looking at the race. How far is it come. You know go to the may rates at one hundred sixty seven the storyteller hundred and sixty five and the lines of borough saint one hundred and fifty sixties of really classy. Horses of wouldn't be far away. Potentially go cut will pursue maze proven that how far come by i mean beyond recognition is in our members as a youngster. You'd have host. I mean the one. You wouldn't even get full fields at one stage and set to than you would have absolutely no chance that win credibly average with the gresh spots in the world just pitching up an almost getting in the way and this is credit. To the jockey club racecourses aintree of management team the modifications. 'cause there's no doubt again. It's not the test it once was i mean it's it's just an incredibly good handicap run over slightly modified fences. Now would be my feeling about it with enormous prize. Money the is attracting a stellar field. As we said it's difficult to get in the national. Never mind win it because of all the things that they have done to make this this occasion and on top of that it still has that sort of like social occasion and fanfare. The grand national has always had but in its new guys. It's just such a quality contest and again it just shows the benefit of tastic prize money. It's going to be a fantastic race as ways and i look forward to watching it on saturday. Thank you for. We do hope. You enjoy the racing on saturday thursday and friday. This is a bumper week and go.

"Hey thank you for the call. Appreciate it very very much. Jeff is up next in la. Jeff thanks and welcome to the program. Appreciate you calling. Go right ahead. Paul yes hi. I'm jeff. I'm from los angeles but i'm a buckeye and i just want to say a couple of things how first of all how much of a joy it is to listen to you and your knowledge of not just sec. That almost all football. And thank you very much just seems like it just seems like every putting the onus on ohio state when none of the three games that were cancelled had to do with them there was the other teams. That were Had to cancel. So i just think it's You it is what it is with the year that's going on. It's not their fault. It just seems like everybody's placing the fault on them or the big ten. Yeah i thought the illinois game was on them. But i could be wrong No it was okay. But it's just i have a. I maintain that they've done all they can do. And you're right whether and by the way it really doesn't matter. I mean we're not talking about anything other than a virus that's affecting people all over the world so whether you get it or not is should not be indicative of your consideration for the college football playoff. I am fairly convinced if how state wins next week. They're going to get in. I don't think it's going to be close. I don't either but it's just They haven't played the schedule. That everybody thinks should be played in the big ten. But that's you know that's the way it is with no outside competition and there's no really good polity big ten teams this year. Other than indiana maybe north western. You are correct. Hey listen. I'm glad to hear from you and it's great to Great to chat and hope you call again heading to break a lot to do on the program. I mentioned coach. Fisher will join us in the next hour jimbo fisher on where the aggies stand in the playoff race brando as well greg mcelroy. He'll you'll stick around to and listening to paul finebaum show podcast philly. Welcome you back. Great to have you all here. Jimbo fisher a little bit later on greg mcelroy. Ten brandon richard. Johnson joining us. You see him every monday night. Right here on a tesol. Richard how's it going You managing to deal with the cast of characters every week. Oh yeah keep everybody in line elissa. Lying is really the person who keeps everybody in line. She's the point guard. You does a great job i am. I mean at this point richard. I'm i get a lot of questions as you do and you know. It seems like the narrative just zeroes in on a couple of things. The heisman between trask and jones am the ohio state earner. I'm really curious what. What's interesting and intriguing. T you right now as we crawl toward the finish line of this utterly bizarre college football season. Tell you man. The playoffs stuff is to the level. Where i'm just saying call me on new year's day when we got the four people there. I just it's hard to keep track of it. The the the arguments are all over the place. Oh should we put. Ohio state instrument Ohio changing the rules state. Who cares man. Just call me when you get the fourteens I do think that when we talk about sort of limping this college football season to the finish. I think one of the things you're seeing is that this sport needs rivalry week at the end of the season but true rivalry week. We didn't have it this year. We had some of it but not all of it And you know for for teams. That don't really have much to play for in games. Seven eight nine ten eleven and a normal season they would at least have. Hey we can get our rival on thanksgiving. That's something to stick around for but this season you got so many teams and so many players looking around and saying what. Are we really even doing here. We're not really in playoff contention with the virus going on like this all this kind of stuff. It's to the situation. Where i i'm i'm looking at these teams and i'm saying yeah i get. Why all these players are opting out. I get while these players are saying you know what i'm done here. It is interesting because there's this narrative it's a traditional. You gotta play for state you but you know a lot of these young guys. It's different for them. They go to college with one object in mind getting to the next level. And you're we saw today with lsu. Now i will. I mean you could. You could see something else happened there but players at this point in the season saying you know what i'm done a we've never seen anything like this before. Yeah and look. I'm going to be playing for state you but state us not paying me or maybe state you will pay me one day but state you pay me right now. The league is paying me. And right now. If i'm a high level even bordeaux on nfl draft pick want my body in the best shape for february when we get whatever semblance of a combat. We are playing regular season. Sec games deep. Into december plus bowls with short turnarounds for nfl teams nfl teams. Have writer writing right around now. Their evaluation process for college players for a lot of these college players. Most of them that are looking to go to believe. The hague is very much in the barn for them and Got to think about your career earnings and that sort of stuff at this point in time particularly because of the season and how haphazard platow it which brings me not to this weekend but the next week and everyone won't be playing. And i've talked some of your colleagues former players always want to play at least that's what they say get stats get more film. But but you're not come from all different sides of the street next week across the country. Mean you're gonna have a lot of just irrelevant games. I'm curious what that's going to look like a.

"Dot com slash savings to learn more ally bank member. Fdic do you think right now. The strength of schedule for an ohio state is significant enough for us to get in even if they played the big ten championship. Yeah i i think. Ohio state is going to fly in Was the big ten championship game win. And right now. It has not been made official. It looks like they'll play next week. Against northwestern. And i think the the car seemed to be aligned. And whether that's fair or not is certainly debatable. But but i think that's that's likely to happen. John is up next in virginia. Hey john paul great to show waited five years for this smooth thank you. Yeah first of all class act keeping tammy on the show at the beginning to introduce it I love hearing a voice but my question is this is it. Seems that the heisman trophy has been just the quarterback awards last one three to four years. Yes and do you think not. Smith share lease najji. Howard should at least get an odd. I mean i know. It's just what he's done yesteryear but he's done a lot over the years to to put him up there as a you know a candidate at least yeah i mean. Harris is probably going to get left out of this whole thing. Because he's on a team with with the co favourite to win and then devante smith is moving up to charge. It's too bad it happens when you play on a team with so many great players. But i think you'd put a harris on i dunno notre dame or or another contender. He might be among the favorites to win. Only just take the guy from. Byu out if he's up there because he didn't do much because we know he's gone. I mean you know when you're in that position you you better win the game and He he's not a factor any longer. Lee is up next in north carolina. L. allay all. Don't we're doing well thank you okay. How got a couple of questions for you. I wanted to ask you your opinion on these shane beamer higher at south carolina and also also wanted to ask you. Have you heard any rumors about. We'll musk can't possibly had contacted shined and asked him for any position available in the paint To do what coach Had heard there's a rumor flying around that he has contacted a mask him for any position available that he could help out with that he would like to come back. Yeah well. I have not heard that and that happened. It would be unprecedented. And you know i i would say in deference to will muschamp. Nobody wants to ex coach around. It's just the wrong thing to do and I don't believe it will happen. Shane beamer tires gone over very well. Most people have praised it and it seems like it is energize. The gamecocks fan fan base We had coach femur on here. Two days ago. And i was incredibly impressed with his demeanor and his his approaching and i think he's off to a really fantastic start. Thanks for the call. Tony is up next in georgia. Hey tony how you today. Thank you paul. I'm old enough to remember white perkins as a lawyer. Well as a coach so then they set me apart from the rescue colleen guys You know the thing that i shake with perkins coaching and playing was alabama wearing white helmets. Why i didn't see play but i did. I did see him. Coach at alabama. And i do remember when he changed the helmets. Well that's what i thought. He was the guy that did Change them and i can't remember how often they played under white helmets. Or why they didn't do it all the time and in In the early sixties finebaum when they ran out on the field some of them had the crimson helmets own and some of them have the white helmets on. They had so many gosling dress down. I i'd have to go back and check the pictures on that. I remember so. Thanks for the call. Though on coach perkin's builders in this bill. Thanks and welcome to the show. yes sir. it's funny. He should mention that i think the i i'm missing state fe and i think the first time cracked those out was When bottom place state they both have maroon this right color. Hell and that's how that got started and I just like to say my my favorite ray perkins story came out me. Collect on each one. That came behind. Coach spot right. He's exceeded coach bright. Yes she used to feel fierce later when he was at solid state of them correct. They played a state there and strong full and state was waiting for homecoming and he just walked off. Although you've been the scott field. He was like thirty yards team. Just looking about the water and say well. That's the way they go. You know yeah. I had an amazing career He flew. We don't know the story very well. He was the head coach of the new york giants. And there i can't tell you. How many former coach bryan assistance and current coach. Brian is just into the end. Thought they were going to get the job. Everyone from jackie sherrill to mala more gene stallings sir countless number of people all. They had the job of gene strong. Saudi had it now more told me he thought he had it. Defensive coordinator thought he had it and ultimately the university decided to go with ray perkins. The decision was made a couple of days earlier after coach. Brian had signalled to the president. At the time joab thomas that he was going to step down and the story broke on tuesday night and a ray perkins was named The next day perkins was still coaching at the time for the new york giants and so And he would. He came down about a week later to be introduced. He literally fired the entire staff of coach bryant And they had to stick around another two weeks to coach in the final there may have been one hangover bit Or or two but the majority of the staff was like especially the offensive staff because he came in with a pro style. Offense wall coach bryant was running the wishbone. let's continue with more calls. And ben is up next in alabama. Hey ben thanks. Good afternoon good afternoon. How about you. Well thank you very much. I've been an auburn a notre dame fan for the past ten years. It's very unfortunate. I don't like it very much. But this year notre dame shown some promise and my question is what do you think. Notre dame has to prove that they're finally legitimate after getting off our butts kicked after every single time we made a big game. Well i think notre dame has shown this year that they're legitimate program. And i think the last three years have been indicative of that. It would be nice to win a playoff game. That's now that's really has gotten into trouble headache after that game though on headache that hurt well when you when you compare when you look at and i think this is correct i mean you have the clemson game which was a disaster and then when they played out in the twelve season they lost twenty eight. Th those are those are hard games to to wipe away and they were both To say the least really good notre dame teams. Hey thank you for the call. Appreciate it very very much. Jeff is up next in la. Jeff thanks and welcome to the program..

We welcome you back to the program and we mentioned going to the break. There is some breaking news Teddy Greenstein. From the Chicago Tribune northwestern pauses workouts after players player tests for positive and I don't I don't know if that's a single player or I can tell you there sec teams right now that have multiple players sitting out but not a single SEC team has paused if my memory is correct, that is the six big ten team according to reports that has at least temporarily pause workouts. Let's get back by the way Tim Brando joining us in a couple of minutes and. We are going to take your phone calls for him so I know that there are people on hold. But if you want to call specifically for Tim during the five o'clock hour, I would strongly encourage you to do it now because it's going to be hard to get in eight, five, five, two, four, two, seven, two, eight, five. Let's continue and Freddie is up next. Hey, Freddie. Well, actually Freddie is not up next longer how about? Ron in Florida Ron go right ahead. Hey, what's up buddy how you being? I have been great. I hope you have. Been Awesome Man. I'm just like honestly listening to what hearing I'm hoping we have seen but with NCWA being who they are I'm pretty sure they're not going to allow that money just to go to waste like that without us having season somehow I know that I'm pretty sure they're gonNa do what we need done with the players of whatever's going on plus they have the season I don't know what's North Western no, and the BE I. Don't know what's wrong with them. Well? What happens a every program is different according to a report. This is the. Twenty Ninth Division One Athletic Department to shot. I know that there are some programs and we all know Clemson announcing thirty or forty positive tests. They never missed a workout. Other programs have different protocols and if they have one player tested, they shut down I'm I'll stay out of that conversation I'll leave it to the medical personnel It seems like the big ten has a more a more. Stringent requirements into shutting down. But with them Sam postponed like that that I mean well, with that means they are simply not going to practice for a couple of days until they get handle on the outbreak. With that being said. You know you know we had this thing he's thinking going to come. I don't know maybe you might WanNa, do later on if we can figure out something if we have the season because I'm pretty confident this year with game this to say no, I. Mean You know the third year we had I to rebuilding it is go time this year Paul you know, I hear people saying the same thing and I once I see the schedule which we have not yet I may agree with you. Thanks for the call Shaw is up next in Georgia Hello Shah hey how's it going Paul looking at us going great though. Thank you, sir. I was just wondering about what you think about the situation might be with Georgia. Now with a two new quarterbacks this extended time to wall up, it's sort of like giving them a spring practice to get this thing big right and it certainly Jamie. Newman needed the extra time and I think Georgia's quarterback backfield is about as good as anybody's I mean, that was a tremendous break getting the waiver lifted. There lucky on thing. I've really worried about position but. We've got two guys. I just other was doing what schedule is going to be. Looking pretty good on that. So hopefully works out for them I. Totally agree, well, Hey, thank you very much. Again, if you WANNA call for Wrandell the calls are starting to lineup. It's GonNa be a popular segment. I can assure you bob is up next in West Virginia habob. They played on. Buddy we're doing great. Got Casino. I get. Okay. Well, I'm sick and tired a second but first of all, if they don't have a college football season because pandemic and the virus stuff. Everybody under would understand that you know what I mean. I don't think they would complain the pains or anybody you know what I mean. I know what you mean metro. I'm not sure I agree with you but. I, mean, we would. We would understand dat what I'm sticking with this stuff all the time. It's often out stuff if they don't WanNa play Paul if they will all down, don't play just don't play. Because eventually, the pains All the good place off down they want money for give some money for that but all PAC want. The fans were just quit watch eventually I mean, we can go a week without football. Sure. I think so Paul. I'm not. Overly, tired of the NFL the only quite. Often, if you want to opt out you just I am not representing the players They have legitimate complaints about health and safety, which is fine. I mean they're not. They're not going to get a share of the of the revenues I mean college athletics is under Assault Anyway Right. Now I think as somebody said a minute ago negotiation they want to be heard it's what I'm. You know what I know is this a sign of the times and you and I may not like it or we make it but yeah, it's it's twenty twenty. I know and I can't. Wait a year. and. One more little to go. Get to your Friday about the band agok. You know. Paul I understand that the base parking for condition which. Is The phaser they're. I mean, they're probably not gonNA be any page, but I do have. I I made a mistake I I was. I. Said I, don't think anybody's do surprised by that, and now I have every Tuba player in America coming after me. While you're. What they wouldn't know fans are going to be paying. You know. I think I think if we move to the next phase, which I think we're heading there are going to be a lot of people who are not where they normally were me included. They're not letting me hanging around the too many press boxes fall probably but that's okay. We'll figure it out as long as we can get to the the start kickoff. I. Think most of us will be happy. Hey, thank you for the call again. Let me remind you a Brando coming up next. He's given us some some time on a Monday we are going to let you bear by wants to criticize the show fine.

"It could. It could be about what's currently going on right now. Anyway, Richard Johnson. Welcome back to the program. We miss you and hope you're hope you are well. Back Well, it's so much shame. The world has about come to an end since we last Don't let that affect a good interview how are you and tell us about this project you've been involved with. UNDOING WANNA poll I said, it would put a little book out It's supposed to be the full. Sci, fi western legendary of the NCWA look if college football and college sports. America that Book Explains College Sports. So I guess this book explains America You know a few months ago and four out of five people that I collaborated with all of this book we're furloughed from are now current job at rocky. Uh and we got together and we said you know, what are we going to do to pass time and so on the four of us myself Jason Kirk Alex Kirschner. Spencer. Hall and They Very Intelligent ad. Tyson lighting all straightened. So this book's got together and started kicking around how we could do a pretty wide sweeping project about college sports and and Spencer in his you know infinite creative ways Don said, well, you know, why don't we just a western? You know we always talk about college sports is the wild west. Why don't we just do it and and so we did it You know I would not recommend anybody go out there and try to. Write. A book in roughly eleven weeks you're not gonNA sleep much but when you do it with with some brilliant creative guys that I've been blessed to be able to do it with these last months it's you're gonNA come out what's on special and and I'm proud of this work and I'm proud of this book and I'm proud of a lot of different ways we were able to like. I said, explain college sports you know we explain the formation. And it's complete and total kind of arc from just a player safety organization. When Teddy Roosevelt convened did early nineteen hundreds to what it is now, which is an absolute mega-brand that runs one of the most beloved sporting events in the United States of America that will soon make one billion dollars per year for its members. You know we talk about that and and and then we also have a section where we talk about you know issued, right? In our society and the issues of. Of Streets and buildings and statues, and so yeah, it's pretty timely because we get in the weeds there and and talk about how those things are a funk facing reflection of what we wished to glorify in society and that weight. Demands a constant measurement and and we use the story of of the former Iowa state player. Jack. trice to tell that tale and explain some of those things the book it's a lot it. It is half fiction. It's half dot fiction. We built a world that we've dropped. He's He's very real stories about college athletics into those explaining the nonfiction way and and then take you to this fiction world than and show you how we're able to all these things together just like I said I I'm really proud of this work and and I cannot wait for more and more people to to experience it and to come along for the ride with us. Well I. Hope they do and Richard congratulations in no fewer your colleagues and they're all extraordinarily talented before We lose sight of the story of the day I. Do want to get your thoughts on what is happening right now especially with the PAC twelve players talking about boycotting there are issues across this country you as someone who writes talks about all of this and follows it very closely What do you think? What Paul this country beyond college sports this country is reaping what it has sown in the last four years the last forty years the last four hundred years and and as as it pertains to these athletes, attacks release their letter yesterday. We go back about four or five years to a couple players that Michigan players that Nebraska, who in the wake of cow of Colin Tapper, Knicks during the national anthem it upon themselves to do the same Nebraska players led by Michael Rosa of your floor linebacker there they knelt national anthem at northwestern Michigan They had raised fists, simple black power symbol of unity. So this has been happening for the last three or four years since Colin Kaepernick took his stance and and these players are following in those footsteps. At the end of the day, if you expect these players as as it was so on eloquently put setup and dribble, those days are over that time is done. These players understand not understand because players who opponent the generations before them see inequities in the system, but they are now taking their platforms social media what have you and voicing it but a lot of these players haven't spoken to a media member in once I mean some some of them go back March February since they talked to a reporter, but they're using their voice and their platforms. T to say what they feel and that letter goes goes far beyond if compensation talk about safety in there and all those sorts of things, it is a holistic account of what these players feel like he'd to be addressed as we go to what is going to be one of the Wildest College Football Seasons that we've ever seen but at the end of the day, if nothing happens if nothing who's in twenty years in thirty years, they'll be able to save their children and their children's children. When we audit the summer of twenty twenty, what did we do for the plight of ourselves for the for the? Plight of people that book like us for the plight of people who are disadvantaged and those players can sit proudly and say we spoke out when we had a platform 'cause, not all of them are going to go to the NFL not many of them are GonNa go to the NFL is this is maybe the most famous that they will ever be and they have used their stance to speak out about what matters to them and that is. So Important Janda. The change happens is so important to to kind of wrap your arms around the agency that you have when you have it and use it as a force for good. Richard. Listen I'm glad you haven't listened to some of the show today because there has been a lot of pushback You know this show well, of course, but but I ask you this. It's one thing to say what they have said and I think it is Historic. But what happens now? What are you hear out there and what do you expect? What it you play this out and and this is the opening to negotiate I. Don't know whether these young men end up walkout boycott or anything like that. Would if nothing else this is kind of the first step in a negotiation antler association as see with the Players Union in the professional sports think that and it it is part of talks and it's part of trying to develop levels and all those sorts of things..

It feels good especially in this weird time, right? At, -solutely, and by the way, the responses are rolling in about the most hilariously evil cardboard cutout purchase for an empty stadium. I don't know we'll fully do it today, go through all of them but urban. Meyer Michigan. Was An early one. The Surrender Cobra kid at Michigan during the mission I. Think it was the Michigan State, punt at the end of the game. Game. That one has been offered out, but we're getting a lot of really good responses, the popcorn guy from Oiseaux to get his presence back in the stadium at Martin Stadium I think would be be a big big win i. think that would get through the sensors. Typically, what? Yes, this definitely has a game day signed feel to it where you need to be clever enough to beat the sensors. And at the same time, not too esoteric that folks aren't going to know what the heck you're talking about like Lane Kiffin is not getting through the sensors in Knoxville? No, no. No. That is like one of the obvious Harvey Updike if you dress them up and it seems more respectable perhaps. Man. There's so many especially players who have been told like if you had like a table on Austin cut out in the stands at Norman in Norman. I. Know I. Think they lost that Game West Virginia to Oklahoma when the huge game. Here, we go. Chris Davis in one of the Alabama Zone Oh. Yeah. Picks or excuse me kick sex that would be.

"Don't we just push it off to the spring? The cost of doing business in this sense will be that we lose some of our early players. But at least maybe we know we can get ten games in. We're GONNA problem is with the other problem with Spring. Is that you with a lot of these programs you run into other sports. So I went to University of Florida, right? A very big, very robust athletic department and a lot of the. I'm not even talking about I'm talking about like s ID's and stuff like that. A lot of the It's football's kind of like all hands on deck for the athletic. Department, in the fall out a lot. Lot of these places they're only, it's only really like football volleyball soccer and then in the winter, obviously basketball starts wrestling and stuff, but for the most part and there's not a big sports. But when you get to the spring, there's so many sports that are going on. It's one of those things where you may end up just running everything together and you may overly tax the athletic departments who don't have the resources for everybody to do. You know six games on a Saturday one of which being football and you know this is obviously like a minor thing because maybe we won't have fans in a potential spring twenty, twenty one, but like. How do you get a campus mobilized to hold those events? Now, there's not fans again. But. Those are just some of the contingencies that that are the collateral damage maybe that you may think of about moving the games to the spring, I. You know I think the? I hesitate to say the word Yeezy, but you know conference only schedules, maybe eight games because that gives you the opportunity to. Cancel. A week. Sit out a week if you've got a lot of positive tests or whatever, and I know that I. You, know I I, I I, I don't WanNa. Sit here in sound like I'm playing around with a very serious public health matter right now, but if we want to be. Pragmatic. Machiavelli and whatever at some point, somebody's GonNa say the quiet part out loud here, which is that we've just gotTa play football to undergird the economics of college athletics because they are so fundamentally war now, you know it just just is what is The other thing that I wonder and I mentioned this to Dan. You know now there's news coming out and I don't how? How significant it is, how seriously I should take it. I. Think we're all in the same boat when it comes to things like vaccine development, right? Like we don't, we do a college football show will leave that to the experts. But if in fact, we do have some sort of vaccine developed by the end of the year, could that be something of a tipping point knowing that? So much of this revenue on the Collagen does come from putting fans in seats, might that give them some further clearance to say you know what? Maybe spring does make more sense? It just depends on like a mass production schedule. It depends on I. You know there, they're already kind of early signs right now that that trials are doing well in the early stages right now, some of these axioms I, read today. Texas Sanam I think is getting a grant to help with production mass production or something like that So yeah, the wheels are turning their definitely would, but you know I don't know if the leagues are going to sit here and say we can wait that long because I don't know if they can you know I and the other like. I think we think we kind of keep it on the team level because you know that's what. That's what pertains to us or whatever. But. I don't think the the the problem or the. I don't think the biggest red flag is these teams being amongst themselves. It's the fact that college kids are GonNa, go up the parties. They're going to go out to bars. They're going to hang out with their friends. They're going to hang out with their significant others. That's where we talk about. That's where that's where real spread occurs particularly in the southern states where it's really popping off right now and then. But then the other thing that that may rear its ugly head is or what happens if where me and Dan, where Dan Anti we're all three of us live, what happens is the northeast does the second wave in October? You know who knows man? I, it's just. I, don't know I I I don't know I. Love. College. Football You know we all. Do we all rely on it for our? For our livelihood, but there is a lot up in the air and it changes every day and it's just. Who knows man? Who knows one of the things I want to get back to? You mentioned something about like the five families, the five power power, five conferences getting together and discussing things and figuring out where they stand apart from the double. I'm wondering if we could see a situation and I've only heard about this recently sometimes, and these are generally older people they'll go in for a medical procedure like they'll get something worked on on like they'll get a broken nose fixed and they'll say, Hey, while you're in there, one fixed is a little bit one, q a little bit of a a facelift. Why? Why not? You know give me some light bulb because I'm going to be recovering anyway. Nobody's going to know the difference. They're just going to say, wow, you look great after all that time off, could this be a situation if we have a shortened if we have a canceled if we have an altered season in some way that the powers that be be? TV. In, conference commissioners and everybody getting together saying, let's let's use this opportunity this time off for an almost restructuring to sort of centralized power in a now national sport whereas we have all this separated disparate power because it used to be a regional sport now, lot more nationalized. Because of TV, could we see a situation in which they use this recovery time to I guess become more efficient in terms of how the sport is structured. I do wonder I mean that now that appeals to the better angels of the nature of college administrators and that would that would take some of them ceding power, and we all know that ain't GonNa Happen You know I I, one of the things that I was batting around with somebody is do we think that this could be a thing where power five out now really breaks off? I, mean, they already have so much atonomy to set rules as they. They want given the rule book, but this thing where they really truly break off and just really say you know kick rocks to the to the rest of College Sports I. Don't think that's going to happen primarily because leaving the NC double a. or something doing something that drastic would leave NC double A. Tournament. TV. Money on the table and obviously nobis that So I don't think will get that drastic I don't think it'll get that bad I the the. Fallout as we know absolutely going to be felt. By the by the group of schools and by the ESPN schools and you know all the way down I. You know I, it trickles down the Shit Rolls Downhill as we know and..

"Like the the top like people ask me like, do you know and I'm like? No, and I don't know because the people I've talked to don't know nobody knows and like there are some things that you can speak to with like relative certainty and confidence. But when I tell you guys, this is the blind leading the blind and I'm talking all the way up to like school presidents, conference commissioners all like I mean, we talked to people in the industry coaches, Asians whatever. Everybody's like what the Hell is going on. Nobody knows what's going on like I there. I. If you seen the college football, read it. Matrix that shows like what conferences and leagues like are playing and what and which ones aren't in like who's canceled like I actually had a coach, Dm me on twitter yesterday he me that picture and it literally says and I quote what the F. Are we doing like nobody knows what's going on and that is the thing that I before. I. Tell Anybody you know my opinion long bangs. Preface that like, I, it could change your week and and there's so many things in this world right now that you can say that about but college football's we're talking about. So yeah, it can change in a week You know the one thing that I think I can talk about with some really pretty big amount of certainty is that spring thing is probably a non starter at least for the power five leagues and it's because honestly because of the NFL like the NFL is I, I don't know if the NFL's going to finish it season, but I will say I'm reading sure they're going to try to. To kick it off Labor Day, weekend and because of that I don't think the NFL is GonNa put I. Don't think the NFL. Going to try to push the columbine back the going to push the draft back and so a, what you may run into is trevor. Lawrence Justin Fields If you were playing in the spring, for instance, Trevor Lawrence Justice fields getting paid a lot by agency to stood out and in the agency gets the money on the back end when they get drafted and get their signing bonus or something like that of that nature. If I'm Trevor Adjusting God bless Clinton Ohio state but. I got a lot of money riding on me. Not Tear an ACL, February fifth and potentially jeopardizing my twenty twenty, one season in the NFL so that I think is the big thing with Spring I. Don't personally view spray. I personally view spring as something of a non starter at least for the power five lease. So that's Ahead I'm sorry. Go. Ahead. I, I would say I, do I would say to the power five. Like. The power five leagues, the commissioners need to get together like the five families in the in the godfather movies. Right? Get together and just say look, this is how we're GONNA do testing. This is we're going to. Do, not the NCWA has already said is on record saying basically if Y'alls a problem. By the. Is Not GonNa put a foot down and and regulate this and all this kind of stuff, and that's because the NCWA is. What the NC, double A., and by the way, you can read about the incident voice formation in the central seven, five West legends of the AA trumping August I at noon central seven, dot com. I, it's just one of those things where it's like the antibodies not GonNa Force a hand here. So it's going to be up to the leagues and it's. So piecemeal like Michigan. State, all tired teams court quarantining rutgers, the entire teams court quarantining. But then maybe another team has a few cases and the whole team in quarantine, but you quarantine a position group or something like that like it's. It's. It's like whack a mole man. It's like, okay. Here's one problem we've solved. Okay. Here's another one. It's okay. We're going to have twenty percent fans in the stands. Well I mean, well, we're not gonNA tailgating So who's GONNA come It's not gonNA BE STUDENTS RIGHT? Like is going to be kids parents like, is it going to be boosters? You go on and on and on you spiral and and that's just me talking and some dummy. WHO's not a conference commissioner. I can only imagine the the levers and what is going on in some of these conference offers man. It's crazy. So let me play devil's advocate. We talk about the NFL and we don't know if they're going to finish the season given current events. We don't know if the MARLINS ARE GONNA finish the week. Okay. So To your point. There's there's a lot going on, but I think you're right about the spring thing to the extent that. If. The goal is to win a championship. Then losing, Trevor Lawrence Losing Justin fields, losing some of these elite caliber players. Is certainly a consideration and a problem I question whether or not. That's the goal here. Right? Because it's what I've been saying all along tie. You know, and then sure let's let's hearken back to your angel point here, and if that's the goal then fine. But if the goal as I understand it. is to just play as many games as possible to earn as many books as possible so that schools and programs don't go under. Wouldn't the cost of? Playing three games in the fall, and then having to suspend the whole damn thing, bef- are greater than saying. You know what? This isn't gonNA work. There isn't going to be a championship at least in its normal sense. Anyway, why don't we just push it off to the spring? The cost of doing business in this sense will be that we lose some of our early players. But at least maybe we know we can get ten games in. We're GONNA problem is with the other problem with Spring. Is that you with a lot of these programs you run.
"richard johnson" Discussed on The Solid Verbal: Living College Football
"At. least it seems the big twelve is going with an aggressive plan. whereas. It seems like I don't necessarily respect it.

This money but chosen mate was well back to really the market phoned the right horses. All MOANING CHOSEN. Mayton us in them. Were horses that that that the other everyone tracking they were getting a lot a lot of attention. I know that in the morning you could have got nine to one. Third Chosen May and by the time the races off he was just just below five to one us and then was just below ten to one himself and another exceptional handicap performance for Gordon Elliott chosen. May He looks absolutely get up for this race. It was again another one that had been running incredibly well behind voices and this was a very very good victory. I think granite eighteen. Who BEEN LONGTIME ANTI POST FAVOURITE FOR PAUL? Nicholls wasn't quite. I don't know again. It was a bad day for political team. None of his horses really Brown. Well this on the best of all of them but they they kind of changed his tactics a bit and he was rather little bit more is positioned up with the pace more than and being being held up and he was always going well but it wasn't going to be the him but again. The Irish is showing dominance in handicaps and a brilliant victory for I think it was a I think. A big syndicate chose mate was at the northern racing partnership and and Yeah tallied upper a great great wheat for Gordon Elliott. Who the day on the morning.

But I'm delighted finish fifth because that went plays mony and he would've got it had it not been for parole qualifier horrible full. Oh Gordon but dramatic stuff and I do remember. It was like old school tv where Nick is handed a piece of paper. It was like something from watching like old school. Reruns of nineteen seventeen news broadcasts. Thanks thanks very much with that update because they were locked together as you said it was. It was amazing why Bez was held up in the rear great field. I have no idea because that doesn't suit him at all. But Hey Sean Joe is trying something different. Jodi mcgarvy keeping the ride Gordon wins again. Jane another huge success for for him.

Been you're instantly. Put at ease and no offense to Shana Keith or JJ seven but been of growing up watching the on the big day and he sold rarely gets it wrong. And this was a tactic.

I'd say the government the closing down and as a great seal being held up. Aki Job better than he usually does so. He didn't travel with fluency that he has done. When he raises from the front put he jumped a lot better than he can Paloma blue biggest parliament for me. I am not making any more excuses for the horse I think he has an implement ability but he wins someday and I won't be on Off and then it of bridesmaid isn't he?

Proposed federal law seeks to limit skyrocketing salaries of college coaches
"Well anyway. I I call one of your stories. He's just week. We're talking about salaries and congress trying to put a cap on things and you. Did I think a an amazing. I don't know how you doug all this up. A deep dive live into the evolution of coaching salaries. Take us through that process. Yeah I one of the one of the most interesting thing about college. Football is how in twenty twenty I guess in our in our myopic nature point twenty we think that we all have these like little arguments novel discussion Russia. We've been doing this thing for one hundred fifty years at this point in time there are quite a bit of things that just are not new and some of that is complaining about too many bowl games but another one of those things is talking about how coaching salaries are way too high. I mean it's it's it has quite literally almost almost always been like this. I mean Amos Alonzo Stagg at Chicago making six thousand dollars in eighteen eighteen ninety two now I went back and use the consumer price report and price some of these salaries out in you know twenty eighteen at the time buying power. And you know. That's six thousand dollars. Amazon does stag was making then was worth like a hundred and sixty thousand dollars back in eighteen. Ninety two there has always been this separation between what highly paid college. Football coaches made Versus what the Common Man Colombian mix. You know I'll I'll bring it to your audience and hit them home like bear Bryant when he's doing. Brian show that that famous Sunday highlight show That that became formative so formative for a lot of Alabama fans. He wasn't doing that just out of the good report he was because he was getting paid there Bryan getting in pay. That's why I thought he. I thought you said he was a benevolent. So I believe you remember this because you weren't born but he also had to Eat the potato chips and drink cocoa which by the way had bourbon in it. Yes absolutely I mean like bear. Bryant was Bear Bryant was cheering the back right now. Yeah so I find it amazing we we. We had a professor on earlier who who was very much a part of the Donna? Shalala Team Wanting to limit coaching Ching salaries so When did they make the big turn? When did they start going? I mean as as some of the critics say out of control to me. It really doesn't matter what any of these guys make but TAKE A. When was the big turn? I think they really and truly exploded in the nineteen eighties because in the nineteen eighties. That's when that Supreme Court hate happened with like Georgia Oklahoma and you know they got. TV rights You know they divorced the TV rights from the NCAA and schools colleges then became able to go. She ate television rights As entertaining defended themselves. Obviously than we get into the CFO era and BCS. And what we have now where the SEC. Disperse what was it. Six hundred and fifty some odd the million dollars yesterday give or take a few million yeah To all fourteen member schools. I mean look. The bedrock of this cannot be overstated. The bedrock bedrock of this is this when you as an Athletic Department at Florida Alabama at Lsu is Florida state when you do not have to pay your labor force when you do not have to compensate you or athletes. That money has to go somewhere now. That money goes to beyond coaching salaries. I mean that's the facilities race that is everything. Everything that makes these college will programs at opulent as they can be obviously a really really big part of the PIE now. Is Coaching salaries. Now Coaching coaching salaries the early eighties. That's stuff starts to get reported. That's my really really starts coming into Coming into the sport in a way that it had really really before that By the time you get through the mid nineties Florida's paying Steve Spurrier the one of the first billion dollar contracts so that he doesn't jump to the NFL at that time honestly the NFL itself explodes. You've got that competition. So it's it's the competition that that spurs in any industry the street Salaries and money and will lose those things but the early eighties. I think is where we can really pinpoint when college athletics kind of started growing up from a from a fiscal standpoint talking to Richard Johnson from a better society in now we all know what is going on. I'm interested where were you. Were you sit on this. Because the the so called Donna. Shalala proposal We heard Professor Ridpath on this would would curtail a lot of things I find find. It somewhat amusing chancellors and presidents at Private Schools More so than public schools making. I'm five six million dollars a year We have an offensive and defensive coordinator is making major seven figure salaries I know is a highly paid journalists. Where we're we're are you on what Shola is is attempting to to do at least down one lane in Congress right. I think you have a good point. the the facilities boom and the salary boom of coaches collect directors and the things that we coach Sports Mirror. That of what we see on the institutional side at a lot of these verses and I think that is one thing thing that really gets lost you know like you said like g Foreign President of like West Virginia. Like these guys make guys and girls make six figures seven figures. There is a lot of money in higher education in the United States at the highest levels. college athletics is it is not an outlander But like studies have shown time and time again going back thirty forty fifty years that when your football all team is good when your basketball team is good It becomes you know they always say that is the front porch of the university. Admissions skyrocket when athletics. Do well and that is. Why a lot of these University of course than anything else I think? Put Up with and we'll pay out the nose for Nick Sabin or Jim Harbaugh or a Davos. We or whatever I think the dirty secret is is the weight from Ro a lot of these endowments in some of these very popular. Schools would shrink a lot more than people wanNA realize. No I mean just look around. I mean boone pickens. She died recently. I mean the the amount of money that he put into Oklahoma state and I don't I don't mean to disparage Oklahoma state in stillwater Oklahoma. Oh my been there. And if you haven't Richard Make sure that you put that on your bucket list. Wouldn't it wouldn't have had that type of money And and a lot of these Jerry Jones. He's given to the University of Arkansas. You can go down the list And I mean and it's because of one thing we're trying to win in in in college football or basketball depending on on on where you live and what part of the country you're in. Yeah absolutely I saw a stew. MANDL's works in the for pretty athletic. He He has a college pat column and somebody asked him Ten million dollars. What would you do with it to build a staff? And I look the question and I was like look man if you WANNA compete with Alabama Lsu Clemson Oklahoma Ohio state. You need more your salary. You Pool has to be bigger than ten million dollars. I mean on on its face. You'RE GONNA have to pay a coach at that level. Five five and a half six six billion dollars. You'RE GONNA have to pay your coordinators eight hundred nine hundred thousand dollars because Dave Aranda was was pulling such a salaried Lsu a few atmosphere necessarily because he was such town defensive coordinator which he is but it was because one opinions coordinator so that the only job job they'll leave for is a G. Five or or power five kids coaching job. It's got bulletproof coordinators. I WANNA lose them. I don't want to take collateral. If they leave me they gotta take step up so okay. You're paying both your coordinators Like one point eight billion dollars between the two. That's like eight million dollars. Just gone to the head coach in coordinators. Now you're in another like five million dollars higher director staff your eight assistant coaches which is all right. That's your ten assistant coaches You want to compete with Georgia Alabama. All right we'll have a party because you have to fill out the rest of those staffs with analysts. We assist tense You know you gotTa have a staff of three saw guys kind of the shadow. Coaching staff that that Alabama kind of those famous or infamous. No matter how how are depending on which by the fence you went on but You know it takes money to keep up with the Joneses and it takes a lot of line really want we national championship. Always great to have you on Richard other than chicken. What's the what's the second most favorite food that you'll be serving the super bowl party Sunday lady a friend is bringing some guacamole? She'll be homemade guacamole. I'm not a big block fan but you know you know how this you gotta try say like it. So that'll that'll it'll be my My side dish. I cannot wait I if I'm in the neighborhood I'll just drop Bil- bring some bring bring a some some fruit cake leftover from Christmas. I couldn't give away Gringa fruitcake. Brings some cold ones man. I'll have seat for you right on the couch next to meatball. Thank you great. Great to talk to you again come back soon. Have you

"Will reveal the results after this now back to the story. The answer is all most Richard. Johnson Johnson almost cost van Buren the election. In fact the Democrats Lost Johnson's Home State of Kentucky but somehow they managed edged enough votes to narrowly defeat the whigs. Richard Johnson however still wasn't out of the woods van Buren and Johnson still had to be confirmed infirm by the Electoral College and the electors from Virginia. Though they were happy to confirm them buren refused to vote for Johnson. If you've been following this show from the beginning you've seen this before. The Electoral College can technically do whatever they want regardless of how their states exploded and that can be bad news when one of the candidates is personally hated by everyone so the vote for vice president was tied and as dictated by the twelfth amendment. The choice fell to the Senate. The decision was between Richard Johnson. And William Henry Harrison's running mate mate Francis granger the vote was split directly along party lines but the Democrats had more manpower. Our and finally Richard Mentor. Johnson was confirmed as vice president on the horizon layup bright political future and opportunity -tunities to extricate himself from crushing debt and restore his tarnished reputation. Unfortunately for him none of those things happened. John Garner who was later vice president to Franklin Roosevelt famously described the office as not being worth a bucket of warm spit that was certainly the case for Richard Mentor Johnson. After all he'd been through to get their van Buren almost never saw Johnson's counsel or advice. Use The two rarely interacted at all. Johnson was mostly relegated to the Senate where all mediocre vice presidents are banished during his vice presidency. It wasn't Johnson's intellect or accomplishments that brought him the most attention. It was his bizarre wardrobe. According to to legend Johnson was walking with a friend in Virginia when they passed a men's shop with a striking red vest and bow tie on display in the window. Johnson suggested they each by one so they could be twins. It's unclear whether Johnson's friend ever agreed by Johnson. Himself supposedly wore the outfit every single day for the next decade even though it grew threadbare and stained it eventually became a source of embarrassment for president. Van Buren who was always immaculately dressed. Perhaps Richard Johnson couldn't afford more than one vest after all he was still in massive debt from his general financial incompetence and even as vice president Johnson couldn't figure out a way. Ada grow rich off kickbacks so he decided to take matters into his own hands he took a nine month leave of absence to open a tavern in his home state of Kentucky. Yes the vice. President of the United States left the capital to run a tavern. In fact he served as the bartender unfortunately for Johnson while many people visited to witness. VP serving drinks. The establishment did little to ease his crushing debt. For for this and other reasons it was becoming clear that Johnson's mental faculties were declining his few speeches. On the Senate floor were characterized used by rambling non sequiturs and his appearance. Screw even more on camped. Johnson did try one final apparently apparently well intentioned endeavor the establishment of an Academy for Native Americans. It's hard to know whether the plan was just away for Johnson to to Siphon taxpayer funds or if he truly believed in the cause but it seemed a noble enough pursuit that other politicians joined the initiative and Johnson was able to secure funding for the school. Initially it was quite successful that educating young native Americans but the quality of the school will quickly declined and any semblance of structure evaporated the academy became little more than a reformatories where children were taught to fight and gamble sometimes with their teachers all the while. Richard Johnson's skimmed what he could from the school's paltry funding though it was nowhere. No where near enough to put a dent in his debts. The school itself was eventually shut down due in large part to an expose in the Cincinnati. Evening Post on its founder. Richard Mentor Johnson. The writer who not only visited the school but also Johnson's plantation and tavern described Johnson as being clad in his morning gown regardless of the time of day and often being found living amongst the slave quarters as for the tavern it was quote little more than an overcrowded dining hall which served bad food muddy not water and black dice for Miss Disgusting Hellhole Johnson road out the remainder of his vice presidency when the election of eighteen forty forty rolled around he was unsurprisingly. Dropped from Van Buren ticket what the Democrats had trouble agreeing on another vice presidential. Oh nominee to their dismay while they squabbled. Johnson took campaigning on his own behalf in one last humiliating incident and while Johnson was giving a speech in Detroit. His former wife's brother Daniel Chin escaped to Canada in case the people had forgotten this was a timely reminder that Johnson had married his slave needless to say Richard Mentor. Johnson did not secure the vice presidential initial nomination and when Election Day came then Buren was defeated. By William Henry Harrison. Johnson spent the last years years of his life in Kentucky suffering from a series of illnesses until he died of a stroke in eighteen fifty before his death he transferred ownership of his slaves to his surviving daughter from his marriage to Julia. Chinn this bequest however was not to be because of her mixed mixed heritage. Johnson's daughter was deemed illegitimate in the eyes of the courts and the property was instead split. Among Johnson's white family members. Josh Richard Mentor. Johnson's life was a profile in shame incompetence and scandal. He worked diligently to secure benefits for veterans and their families and introduced a bill to outlaw debtor's prisons but it was his relationship with Julia Elliott Chin that he'd be remembered for and though he defended Julia and their mixed race daughters in public and private. It wasn't on the basis of equal. Well rights or abolishing slavery. His lifelong behavior was proof that he considered his slaves as property even if they were also his family family. We may never know how Chin felt about her husband but by today's definitions their relationship was nothing short of rape and while L. His myriad shortcomings are genuinely funny and pathetic. Richard Johnson deserves to be relegated to obscurity but whether he deserved preserved all the mudslinging in personal insults during the election of eighteen thirty six. There's no denying the president his case set. It's in effect that still felt today from local elections to the highest office in the nation. Nothing is off limits. No family member is immune and racism is the most effective way to polarize voters. Maybe this will change in the future. Perhaps candidates will stop focusing being on the issues that divide us and focus instead on what unites us but as long as racism persists whether it's quiet it or overt it will always be a part of politics in the United States.

"Hand which served as a testament to his bravery in eighteen fourteen before those wounds had a chance to fully heal Johnson returned turn to Congress where he was celebrated as a hero one with unlimited olitical capital and although it would take almost twenty years Richard Johnson played the long game iding his time until the moment was right. That moment finally came in eighteen thirty eighty six when he appeared likely to succeed Andrew Jackson as the Democratic nominee for president but in the years since his heroic on the battlefield. Johnson's Johnson's life had taken a series of bizarre and often comical turns turns that would threaten not only his own political future but that of the Democratic ticket coming up. We'll delve into the johnsons scandalous personal life. Now back to the story in eighteen nineteen five years after his legendary en- dairy defeat of tecumseh congressman. Richard Johnson was involved in the first humiliating debacle of his career. It wouldn't be the last I that year John C.. CALHOUN secretary of war launched the yellowstone expedition. The purpose was to establish a fort in in present day. North Dakota Richard Johnson Convinced Calhoun to award the supply contract for the expedition to his brother. James the same in brother who fought bravely alongside Richard at the battle of the Thames. Calhoun agreed what Richard failed to mention was that he and James were business partners. The contract was an exercise in corruption. James Johnson's significantly overcharged. The government meant for almost every item. Meanwhile Richard demanded astronomical advances for work. James hadn't even done yet and the work he did do was less than satisfactory of the five steamboats commission for the trip. Three of them broke down well before they arrived at their destination. The only reason the other two didn't break down is because they were never used after an audit it was determined Herman James Johnson overcharged Congress. Seventy six thousand dollars for the steamboats alone worth about one point. Five million in today's dollars hours as a result Congress demanded repayment from the brothers Johnson. A penalty. which would put them in debt for the rest of their lives but one that it would also lead to one of Johnson's few triumphs as a legislator in eighteen nineteen still owing to his fame? As a war hero richer drew Johnson was elected to the Senate though it was a glorious moment for him it was a bad time for the country. War and depressions throughout Europe had begun to severely affect trade with the United States articulately in the agricultural sector before this American farmers were doing exceptionally well and many had borrowed money from banks to buy more land and equipment but once trade slowed and prices dropped. They couldn't couldn't afford to keep making payments. As a result the central bank began repossessing homes farms and businesses at an astonishing rate at the time. Prison was a common punishment for people. Unable to pay off their debts and during the panic of eighteen nineteen debtor's Prisons began to swell Richard. Johnson was relatively unscathed by the panic but his financial mismanagement and corruption had left him severely in debt so he felt a certain empathy for the debtors in eighteen twenty three he introduced a bill. That would outlawed debtor's prisons across the United States although most of his colleagues supported the measure gridlock and obstruction prevented from passing until eighteen. Thirty two still still. After nine years Johnson finally had his triumph but like everything else he achieved. It was overshadowed by his personal life. Life one that was growing increasingly bizarre. Most shocking all was his relationship with Julia. Chin it's not known exactly when Johnson began this quote Unquote Relationship Chin had been one of his father's slaves and Johnson inherited heritage her around eighteen. Fifteen when he was thirty five. It's also not known why Johnson took Chin as his so-called wife although it it was a marriage warped by slavery and an inherent power imbalance. It's possible that Johnson was simply in love. Another theory is that it was an an act of rebellion. During his Youth Johnson had dated a young white woman whom his mother disapproved of Johnson's brothers and sisters had all all married within or above their station. And she wanted the same for Richard so the union was called off so like an angry teenager after. It's possible that Richard chose Julia as his partner to spite his own mother. Whatever his motivation? Few people found the union appropriate. It or acceptable Johnson in Chin invited more scorn by deigning to raise their mixed race daughters in white society the fact the daughters were gifted young women who excelled in their studies attended. Church took piano lessons and outshined. Many of their white classmates was agreed to the rest of the neighbors. It was a threat to the southern racial hierarchy and the institution of Slavery Itself Hometown Newspapers described Chin as quote a jet black thick lipped odiferous winch yet. Another scalded Johnson for having quote reared a family of children whom he endeavoured to force upon society as equals. Chen died of cholera in eighteen. Thirty three and Johnson was deeply affected when he was done grieving. He took up a relationship with another one of his slaves leaves when she tried to leave him for another man he tracked her down. Sold her off at an auction and began a relationship with her sister. With all of this going on Johnson's personal life it's almost unfathomable that he was chosen as Martin. Van Buren is running mate in the election. One of eighteen thirty six. The Vitriol Johnson would face from the national press during the election was far worse than anything he experienced it in Kentucky but rather than find different more appropriate running mate. The Democrats said about burnishing the positive aspects of Johnson's image as a war or hero. Richard Emmons popular poet and playwright wrote a biographical play. About Johnson's heroics called tecumseh or the battle of the Thames. Emmons pen the line. Sound the bugles rump. See Dempsey colonel. Johnson killed to come see though not as catchy as Abraham. Lincoln's don't change horses in midstream. Or even Jimmy Carter's memorable slogan. Not just peanuts Johnson believed the rump. See Dumb see line would propel L. Him. To victory. The election itself was essentially a referendum on the sitting president. Andrew Jackson Liked Jackson. Van Buren and Johnson were Democrats. Who ran on a platform of small government westward expansion and slavery but Van Buren and was a wealthy northerner? So Richard Johnson was most likely chosen because he was the closest thing. The party could find to another Andrew Jackson. He was a war hero from the frontier. Who was popular with southern voters and WHO's dubious marriage would threaten to derail the whole election shen the opposition party? The whigs were represented by Johnson's. One time brother in Arms William Henry Harrison the whigs were essentially early the anti-jackson party but if they had a specific mandate it was big government lots of tariffs and a central banking system in in keeping with American tradition. The whigs focused on attacking their opponents personal character more so than their political principles to the extent they went. After van Buren. The attacks were pretty benign. They characterized him as an abolitionist and a wealthy northern elitist. Their attacks son Richard Johnson though were vicious the northern whigs were mostly anti-slavery yet. They courted the racist. Southern vote by relentlessly attacking Johnson's interracial relationships. It was hypocritical. But it worked at the time candid ended. It's rarely campaigned in person. Mostly they stayed in Congress or in their home states and use the media to promote themselves but van end buren and Johnson were among the first people to undertake a modern campaign. Crisscrossing the country to give speeches and true to form Richard. Johnson found a way to embarrass himself on the campaign trail. Well campaigning in New York. One of Johnson's slaves who may have been related to his former wife wife managed to escape from his plantation in Kentucky. Johnson hired slave catchers to retrieve him but they were unsuccessful. Naturally this fiasco was a gold mine for the Anti Slavery whigs the whigs even brought. Johnson's heroism on the battlefield into question Kevin suggesting that he hadn't actually killed Tecumseh or if he had it had been a lucky shot but it was their attacks on Johnson's family. Millie that had the most distressing effects. In fact one of Richard's daughter died during the campaign reportedly from the stress exhaustion in in grief brought on by the personal attacks after a grueling nasty and lethal campaign. The question on everyone's mind was the same. What van Buren running-mate cost him? The election.

Richard Johnston and killed to come. See this rhyming. Couplet would somehow be remembered as the least embarrassing aspect of Richard Mentor Johnson. Political career. In fact it would herald his assent to the vice presidential nomination and the election of eighteen thirty six but his scandalous interracial marriage threatened threaten to undermine everything he worked for and the hopes of the Democrats Julia Chins ethnicity was mixed most records list her as one in eighth African in ancestry a small fraction but enough for her to be considered non white non white was more of a social designation nation than a legal one in most states. It meant having less than one. Eight non white blood but many people have mixed race descent. Either didn't no their ancestry or lack the paperwork to verify it so if a person could pass for white they often did until it was proven otherwise the pigmentation of someone's skin was the main factor in whether White Society chose to accept them in the case of Julia Chinn then even though she was Johnson's wife she was never considered his equal perhaps owing to the fact that she was his slave or perhaps because she he had darker skin an African American features describing his relationship with Chin in his speech Johnson defiantly stated unlike Jefferson. Listen Clay Poindexter and others. I married my wife under the eyes of God and apparently he has found no objections. But there's not not a normal or healthy relationship either. While Johnson considered Chin to be his wife as his slave and legal property she couldn't exactly object object to the arrangement. She did take on the duties of a traditional wife such as managing his plantation entertaining guests and bearing him two daughters. Yes it's unclear. Why Richard Johnson felt as strongly as he did about elevating his wife's position in society? It certainly wasn't because of a moral objection objection to slavery nonetheless. His pride in his relationship was clear as well as his pride in his two daughters whom he loved doted upon and raised proudly in White Society. He wanted his daughters to have the same opportunities and advantages that he had as a child old. Instead they were relentlessly attacked and vilified. They faced obstacles. Johnson never could have imagined the consequences of which would be devastating as a child the only obstacles Richard Johnson faced with the occasional native American raids. He was born born in present day Kentucky in seventeen eighty to one of the state's wealthiest and most prominent families and he was determined to succeed from a young age after studying law. And passing the bar in Kentucky. Richard began a brief career as a lawyer. He mostly represented poor and rural clients on a pro bono basis which helped establish his reputation as a man of the people that reputation got him far in eighteen o four at age aged twenty four Johnson was elected to the Kentucky House of Representatives. At the time there were two major political parties the federalists and the Democratic Republicans. federalists believed in a strong central government particularly the institution of a Central Bank while Democratic Radic. Republicans believed in an extremely limited federal government but the most important issue of the day was slavery even though the institution literally literally divided the northern and southern states. No one could deny it was the foundation of the entire American economy in the south slaves were bought sold and traded like the cotton they picked in the industrial north. Those same crops were shipped abroad or processed in factories. Juries so while slavery may have been outlawed in northern states it was still the backbone of their business and while some northerners owners hated slavery few actually believed in equality between the races and in the south slaves were basically property even the poorest most imbecilic white person could take comfort in the fact that he or she was superior to a slave slavery was the glue that held called the Democratic Republican Party together. The party was gaining popularity at the time particularly in the south and especially after the election of Thomas Jefferson in eighteen hundred capitalizing on this trend. Richard Johnson ran for the US House of Representatives in eighteen zero six and he one for the next six years. He was a popular if undistinguished congressmen but that all changed with the war of eighteen eighteen twelve several factors contributed to the outbreak of a war between Britain and the United States. Just a few decades gaid's after the revolution but it was British involvement in native American raids on settlers that inspired Richard Johnson to enlist and fight as a child growing up in the rural country. Johnson was no stranger to native American attacks and as a notorious war hawk he he had no hesitation about engaging in another battle against the Brits the most notorious enemies on the frontier where British General Henry proctor and his ally the native American chief known as comes in eighteen thirteen proctor and a coalition of native American forces killed over five hundred American men mostly Kentucky Inns and Johnson's swore to avenge their deaths. That promise would lead him. mm-hmm into one of the most famous battles in US history from which he would emerge a hero. Allegedly this is what happened at the time time there was no official. US military only loosely assembled militias. It took almost two years but Johnson organized these militias into one central effort to find and defeat procter and tecumseh by October eighteen. Thirteen proctor tecumseh and their men had moved as far north into Canadian territory near the Thames River in their pursuit Johnson now joined by his brother. James met up with the the forces of General William Henry Harrison when they reached the Thames River Harrison and the brothers Johnson found the enemy. Soldiers assembled in two who lines separated down the middle by a swamp to the left of the swamp lake tecumseh and his troops to the right proctor and the British. Luckily a scout found a clear and direct path across the swamp. By going through the middle it would allow them to split procter's forces sources from tecumseh and battle both sides simultaneously making it impossible for either to retreat. Although the conditions were terrible all over the swamp they were far worse on the side where Tecumseh and the native Americans were stationed. They all knew it was risky practically a suicide mission. And but Richard Johnson wasn't about to back down. He ordered his brother. James to go around the right side and attack proctor. Telling him you you have a family I have none. Meanwhile Richard would take on Tecumseh and with those brave words and the blare of Bugle. He led hundreds of men into battle. Within minutes James Johnson and his platoon had had killed almost a dozen of the British men forcing an immediate retreat. But things weren't as simple for Richard. The swampy terrain proved nearly only impossible for their horses to navigate. Richard and his horse were both seriously injured during the charge but as luck would have it his injured horse. I led him directly to chief to come sir bloody and battered Richard Johnson Road Straight for COMESA avenging. The deaths of his fellow Americans Americans who had actually settled onto comes as land in the first place unfortunately the gravely wounded horse tripped and Buck Johnson off. Just as he entered the chiefs line of sight not wasting a second tecumseh KOCHTA's rifle and fired blowing off part of Johnson's finger and maiming. His wrist rather than reload his rifle to come dropped it in the mud raised his Tomahawk and charged but Richard Johnson squared up fired fired his pistol and hit to come so directly in the chest after tecumseh drop to the ground. Richard Johnson fainted from a massive loss of blood blood. He had to be carried off the battlefield but he done it be infamous. tecumseh was dead. Killing a native American chief was the surest path to glory for an American soldier. The only problem is there is no direct evidence. Any the of this ever happened. Some accounts suggest Johnson was responsible others claimed that a different soldier killed tecumseh others. Still that tecumseh was already mortally wounded before Johnson even got there but whatever happened. Johnson came away with war wounds including permanently disabled disabled.

"Counting down the biggest scandals in American political history. This is number forty eight. The election of eighteen thirty six and the bumbling career of Richard Mentor Johnson. There was perhaps nothing more scandalous in antebellum America then an interracial relationship miscegenation defined as the interbreeding interbreeding of different racial types was illegal in most states before the civil war in eighteen sixty one in some southern states law remained on the books well into the nineteen sixties but many slave owners. Even some of the nation's founding fathers raped their slaves and had children out of wedlock it was only because of miscegenation laws that they kept these affairs a secret even though it may have been the worst kept secret in the history history of the United States but there was one southern slave owner and politician who fiercely and publicly defied the miscegenation laws that Batman was Richard Mentor Johnson. But it wasn't because Johnson was a man dedicated to the principles of equality or because has he had a steadfast moral ideology. Johnson was contradictory and mysterious character whose beliefs were shaped by his experiences in rural Antebellum Kentucky. He was a slave owner from a wealthy family. A War Hawk. An opponent of large central government by all all accounts a typical southern Democrat. He was also a war hero whose exploits on the battlefield during the war of eighteen twelve started a lifelong lifelong career in politics but his career was tainted by corruption incompetence and numerous comical failures but he's is remembered most for his marriage to Julia Chinn his slave a relationship so shocking it overshadowed his political career his his war record and nearly derailed the presidential election of eighteen thirty six.
