"Bring us together when we're still because if we're focused on the next move we don't have to worry about what's behind us goodyear more driven back we're live in fayetteville and joe chest tour has arrived so the everything i was just thinking yesterday. We seems like yesterday. We were sitting here together with jerry jones. We've had some great times here through the hall country we had jerry. Jones wants sitting between us. And marcus if i recall the story. Marcus mentioned something about jerry. Shoes how expensive the shoes were. And and jerry turn to him and said why gave you enough paychecks by some nice shoes too while he was looking at him. Jerry took off shades very famous day and i grabbed them them on. Now jerry worth oh please. Well i mean the cowboys are one of the most expensive franchisees in the world billions tens of billions of dollars and he looked at me like i had just wiped causing sacks account. Cross the line. W like if i was in london and i grabbed the queen's i i mean that's pretty much the equivalent it america. That's the equivalent taking jerry jones. Forty thousand dollars sunglasses would commit reaching it. Hey hey queenie you got some gum there and you'll be the hope we didn't notice he did. Jerry is going to be here tomorrow. So stephen jones so i mean this is a huge one. Listen you say what you want about a lot of different games that you can put on the schedule right. and rivalries that have been dormant. There is something about texas arkansas. That i'm not sure the rest of the nation gets and then you come here and the hogs fan the razorbacks fans racially. I believe that there is a certain generation of razorback fans that hates texas more than themselves. Well it's interesting Coach by earlier and he made he he. He alluded a statement. He made earlier this summer. That these guys texas. That's that's the biggest rival. Some fans didn't know it is. It is see what i love about the what i love about the game that we're broadcasting here. Saturday night is that it's got a lot of the past. It's got a lot of the present but it's got a very very attractive future because the past is nineteen sixty nine and winning the national championship. Richard nixon's nineteen eighty-one lou. Holtz upsetting number one texas. It's two thousand four and the presence is the anticipation of all of this right. The present is the ascension of two programs. Getting back to where they deserve to be in the future is that we're going to have tremendous sec. Rivalry the rebirth of a rivalry. And you're going to have it in the sec. So joe yes. Paul still thinking about stealing something from mcqueen which retains his sunglasses the man you also were in dunking throwing. The ball was tim. Yeah yeah he's he's part of the east part of the sec excellent I know you've been gone. You've been hanging around billionaires but we were still here. Nothing's changed for those who don't know what we're talking about. And that would include. Probably most of the audience. Joe tested tori. Who's sitting right.

"It'll teach you how to do your taxes. And and all that stuff. So i don't. I don't see a downside paul. Not on the same front but a similar front It seems like a month ago but it was a it was just monday. That the austin case was adjudicated. And and and there's so much reaction to it and you know so many predictors of of doom and gloom. So i ask you andy as somebody who watches all of this. What is going to happen. narrow and in the future with the ncw what what does it. What do you think it's going to look like was so many people coming effort. It's going to be. They're going to have to come up the say i don't mean the ncw in the schools because let's face it. The schools are the aa. The schools are going to have to come up with rules that will survive and antitrust challenge. Or they'll have to collectively bargain with the athletes because collective bargaining agreements are not capable of being challenged on antitrust grounds. So it's you have to decide one or the other which is going to be less painful for. And i don't know the answer to that i don't think anybody does. I think if you read read those opinions now that the the brett cavanaugh opinion was certainly much fire. A much more fiery but not the one. Everyone signed their name. Neal gorsuch opinion is one. Everyone signed their name to but if you read them close they say basically the same thing in. That's we ruled on the. They're very narrow thing before us. But if you bring this mess to us again in another form we're gonna probably rule the same way so adjust accordingly and that's why you see you know. Nfl is not related necessarily to that case but the schools were waiting to see what happened that case before they came up with more laws and what the solution that has been proposed that kind of bare bones solution basically puts it on the schools and says hey guys good luck don't get sued and so the ncaa. The schools have to figure out. Do they want a strong governing body. That has rules that. Cover everybody if they're gonna do that. They gotta make rules. That are not going to be challenged all the time in federal court. They can't they can't collude they have to act like competitors and that's gonna be the tricky part. I i almost think it'd be better if every conference had its own set of rules for everything. Which of course would be tough to stitch together. A national proposition in terms of competitiveness. But at least then you could say hey. We're different from that other league. You know we're not colluding and but the other thing is the other way you can do is make the rules more permissive. So that people don't want to challenge them. I still believe if this had happened five years ago. Some of these cases. Never get this far. Because you've given the athletes something you you you you bent you. You made a concession. You made a compromise. They never compromise. They kept saying no no no. We can't do this. This is impossible. It's too hard and then that's how you get yourself in the situation. They found themselves in this week. And finally andy the cfp conundrum. We know there will be a twelve team playoff. We don't know when we heard all the posturing from the administrators on tuesday. What what's your takeaway from from all the bloviating from all the poppycock. When are we going to see this tournament. So i want your listeners to help out here paul i. I don't know if i if i need to make it. Where if i lose this. I have to eat a shoe or have to eat a hat or just a few months ago. Were eight a bunch of nut chicken nuggets and we raise money for charity for each chicken nugget. But if they do not start this thing by two thousand twenty three i want everybody to come up with the most outrageous stakes. They can come up with for me. If i lose this because i bet it starts in twenty twenty three. Because i just can't imagine people like greg. Sankey people like bob boles be people like jackson brick and craig tops in the ones who created this twelve team format. I can't imagine them letting it get out into the world without knowing they'd be able to get it done as soon as possible. The idea of putting this out there. And i know that that ari fleischer the pr consultant. Who used to be the white house. Press secretary was was the one who encouraged him to put it out there. If you put it out there and you don't do it for five years. People are gonna riot. You've you've got everybody excited. You've gotten people on board for a twelve team play. I think i certainly a year ago. It would be like no way these playoffs. But i love most of this thing. And i can't wait to see it if you made me wait five years for it. I'm gonna be so mad. So yeah two thousand twenty three. That's the first year logistically and start. I bet it starts then and if it doesn't then i'm probably eating shoe or something. Okay donate issue. And i know they're a million answers for this final question but you know everybody's posturing most people conventional wisdom seems to be pointing the finger at the rose bowl but If you had to pick one party who could possibly hold this up. Would it be them. Would it be the network that i currently work for. Who would be. Let's talk incentives. Let's let's talk. Who who has the incentive to hold it up the rosebowl would like the best deal the rosebowl can get. The rosebowl would like to to take place at two. Pm pacific time on january first. It's possible at the rose bowl with the significant backing of the big ten in the pack. Twelve may get what it wants. I mean that. That's why you saw the plan say quarterfinals at the bulls which i think is the dumbest thing in the world but i also understand may not be able to get out of that before the end of this current contract so he may have to find a way to work with them. Which i get it. If you have to do that you have to do that. The other parties that i think would be interested in making it. Go all the way to twenty twenty six would be the ones who have partnerships with a network that isn't espn because they'd like to see go on the market and have those networks be able to to have a chance to bid on the playoff in and have a chance to get on espn on the other hand. I'm sure your your bosses have probably mentioned this to you. Paul they would love to have this thing forever. And if you rip up the contract three years early and you make a new deal maybe give you another ten years and maybe espn's willing to pay for that or another fifteen years. Espn would like to lock this thing down as long as possible and the best way for espn to do that is do it in two thousand twenty three show you broken the code here and not to the vinci code but the fox code mike my am i am. I hearing you correctly it could be. Nbc they televise the notre dame games. Oh yeah that'd be forgotten. Maybe it's natural that when you when.

"Effective and prevents a potentially deadly disease here and furthermore now that we have the delta variant in this country which is far more contagious and also fond more deadly and affects young people. Preferentially it seems all the more reason to protect these kids and their kids. They you know these are seventeen. Eighteen year old kids. They need guidance. They need got us from their coaches fitted guidance from their team doctors. Say look you need to vaccines so we can protect your life. And so i think it's i think it's outrageous it's home it's almost hard to put into words. Yeah so those are my thoughts. Well listen. I'm glad you called because Thank you very much. Dr j. out in seattle but it certainly topic today and we will ask the commissioner later on. Just you know where he i mean. I know how it feels about the vaccine. But you know what a what it all means for the fall because there's a lot of incentives out there for players to get vaccinated but that doesn't mean they are and we will get some more reaction to what The docs shed and more guess as we continue here on. What's already turned out to be a very active friday afternoon. We're coming back to listening to paul finebaum. Show podcast back here. Andy staples joining us. I just check the date. It's june twenty fifth twenty twenty one although as we say. Hello to andy in may as well be june twenty-fifth twenty twenty based on some of the calls that we've had already and the fact that covert is our number one story today because of what's happening in omaha and please can we get off the train and get on a new one. I don't. I don't like where we're going today. I hope so. That's what i was listening to your conversation with. Dr j. and i was thinking. What did i get sucked into a time more. And i just think i saw the picture that thirteen nc state players who are who are left thinking what what. Where are we right now. so yeah. Hopefully everybody's gonna be a and this is the last college sports story where we're talking about something like this because i really hope this isn't dragging on into into next fall. No i know. I mean the idea that we're even coming up but but it it does remain in issue though because everyone is not to say and by that You know some schools have very good numbers of of athletes. Who have taken the vaccine. And don't and that will that will the protocols. We'll be different. will they. Not they will. And here's what i'll say about that. I'm not a big fan of the government forcing anybody to do anything i don't. I don't think that's good policy but certain things are gonna be easier to do if you do certain things like you don't have to get a driver's license but in most cities in america. It's a lot easier to live there. If you have one so you just got figure this out inside what's best for you and your schools are going to probably have to do something. I would imagine similar to what the nfl did where. Here's what you can do if you're vaccinated. Here's what you do. If you're not and i would say the incentives are probably gonna be pretty high on the side of get the vaccine talking to andy staples. Andy were flipping the page. We'll come back to the vaccine later on. Let's do it. But but i i mean there's so many other things to get your reaction to. Let's let's start with where in i l. is and and we're about to turn that page and i've lost track. My head is spinning about trying to keep up with mark. Emerald is today but Next week it's happening. what's it gonna look like. That's a good question. I have been wondering about this because this is i wrote about this ten years ago saying hey this would be a great idea. Schools give scholarships and then whoever else wants to pay the college athletes. Go ahead and pay him. Let let them be on the market and let the marketplace decide. What pay him. And i'm i'm kind of excited to see what happens. I saw georgia player has already got his apparel company. Ready to roll You know the some of these folks that have a million tiktok followers or million instagram followers. Listen they're going to be able to cash in because regardless of what they play or who they are and this is a cross college sports because not these are not all necessarily football or basketball player. Some of these volleyball players Soccer players those people. There's an established market for what you can pay. Someone who has a million instagram followers for a sponsored post like thousands of transactions have already been made in that marketplace and companies are going to pay market rate for something like that and that person is going to be do five figures every time they do it so good for them. My my feeling on this has always been. I've never been a critic of know coaches calories. Salary should be captured. I want everybody to be able to make as much money as they can. And so i. I hope this allows players to make some more. I is anybody going to become a bazillionaire off of this. I don't think so but if it helps make the players little more comfortable if it helps teach them something about the real world. Which by the way isn't that. What colleges for learning how to live in the real world. This'll this'll teach something about being an entrepreneur..

"We're talking about rights here. And i'm a arguing. I'm just asking just asking. Ken a i in this type of setting Kennedy can the nc double a. Do that. I guess my question. Well i'm not an attorney position You know the legal aspects of this. However i i have been I've been led to believe that you know private companies. They can make the vaccine mandatory. That you can't come to work. I mean i think we have that hospital in texas In houston as an example where they said no you know if you're going to get vaccinated you're not gonna you're not gonna come to work you're not going to work in this hospital So i do think that you know private corporations such as the nc two. I mean they can make vaccine mandatory and it's the right thing to do. This vaccine is not experimental. It's been proven to be highly effective to prevent a potentially deadly disease. Let me ask you a question. Dr as as a physician. Because i mean i. I see some of these Vaccine rates your alabama the other day. Twenty twenty eight percent mississippi. Thirty one percent fully vaccinated. And i i've always believed in you understand this better than most. I mean it's a it's a personal choice but the information is out there as a physician when you see rates like that and see events like today which i think we all agree could have been avoided what what goes through your mind well. I think.

"I mean this is not a unique thing that college world series. It's just so far removed from all of that back in the winter certainly but even march and april. I think everyone felt that they were all clear. This and there's been no issues and baseball. Tournament was sixty four teams over the last one and even in the conference tournament. So it's it's really. It's been a shocker. But they will definitely be shorthanded But you know if stay wins one of these two games. They still play for national champ next week. But a man. It's a lot tougher now than it was when we woke up this morning again. You know. there's there's a feeling the cova dover and obviously this is an indicator that it's clearly not but wh as best you know I realize you're out you're covering baseball. You're not Going deep into the weeds. But you know. What are the protocols for this tournament because it just seemed a lot of people are just flat footed today going hacker. This even be happening with where this country is right now. Well i mean. I can tell you this. It's there have been protocols in place when it comes to for example there have been no face-to-face media sessions that that people know of. I've talked to players. I've talked to coach his face to face. But there have been any official You know all the press conferences we're in the press box and their own zoom From down in the basement of td ameritrade park We're not allowed to go. No one's allowed to go to the team practices at creighton or the local high schools. And in the past. I've always gone to. That's where i've got all my information and interviews and so there's been that separation but at the same time The teams are wear masks No one's in the press box is where mask. Espn employees are But no one else is and And it's you know you go to the hotel. Listen i was staying in the stay hotel and when they would come home after. These dramatic wins. I mean it's shoulder to shoulder everybody in the hotel lobby. But if i want to interview a player coach I had to do that soon. So we're still kind of in that amoeba of water the rules and and i think that this unfortunately for instance state is just a reminder for all of us that we're almost there this this is easily the most normal belt covering a sporting event since march early march of twenty twenty but this is just a reminder that You know it's way better than it was but clearly it ain't over yet. Final question ryan clearly and including this is going to be something that i'm sure athletic officials us in the future but do we have any idea. The percentage of fully vaccinated players on this on the wolfpack team. We don't know. I mean i i have a i have pretty good sources that is certainly not all of them which we just learned You know what i heard. It was behalf and half. Now that's that is that is purely that. I'm i'm not attaching any official reporter status to that. That's just what i've been told. That's pretty standard across the board. But you know we're watching him. I'll be players have to sit out games we're watching. Nba players have to sit out games in the playoffs. And we're now watching nc state. Thirteen kids on the field. Who aren't ready for this game. Certainly not ready to face it kumar rocker and so Yeah there's a. There's a sermon there somewhere. Paul yeah sure.

DawgNation's Mike Griffith Makes Wild Accusations About the Potential of Georgia Football
"Going to read you a comment. That danny sheridan gave to us. I think it was about a week ago. Danny was picking the final four and he georgia to go to the final four this coming season and he said i would say the fourteen would be. George think georgia is loaded in. Georgia does not win this year. They are not going to win for a long time. And by that i mean. Get to the final four. Do you think this is the season as georgia is. Getting playoff are bus for kirby smart and his team. Yeah i've heard that the last few years in kirby keeps finding players in georgia keep finding ways to contend being a contender and actually doing. It are two different things. But what georgia's john paul. As they've stayed in the conversation or as curry says you gotta keep getting those at bats and when he finished in the top ten. Four straight years as georgia's don you recruit as well as kirby has you give yourself a chance and georgia's become known as a place that quarterbacks like to come now. The results have not always blossomed. Is much as people would like but you look at this roster now and jt daniels. Looks like one of the best quarterbacks in the country coming back. He's a former five-star they signed broadband. A grip he was a five star. Wants committed oklahoma. Now they've got gunner stockton committed a twenty twenty two five star. I mean my goodness talent is everywhere and now it's just a matter georgia finishing the job on football field. Which brings me one more comment and we don't we. Don't go out looking at other shows to bring you information. We take it from our own program. And i believe those two weeks ago booger mcfarland. We all know boogers credentials. He said this on on our show he said if you are a bulldog fan and you're going to sit there and stare honestly in the eye kirby has done less with more than maybe even mark. Rick how would you respond to that. Wow i guess. I'd say first of all you've got to get more right. You've got to have those recruiting classes in the top two or three. That's a good problem to apple and as far as doing more with less they're less with pernille they're getting ready. You can't if you can't finish the job though mike. That's i mean you're you're you're you're you're playing right in to what these guys are saying georgia out recruit anyone would maybe the exception of alabama But when are they going to finish the job. That's the question that georgia fans are asking. Yeah it's it's been tough when you win the sec. Three years in a row. And you lose to alabama in the sec championship. Game and twenty eight teeny get left out of the playoff for you. Come within one play of winning the national title twenty seventeen. I mean. i can't answer those questions for you. Know it's funny. You had ryan mcgee up there a few minutes ago talking about the late. Great dale earnhardt. He didn't win the daytona five hundred until his twentieth attempt. So those big game. Victories can be kind of a lucid. And i think that's happened for george. Remember paul kirby smart is only forty five years old. This is only year six for him. You look at how long it took guys. Like steve spurrier and nick sabin and they were six seven years into their careers before they got their national titles.
20 Years Later: How Dale Earnhardt's Death Changed NASCAR Forever
"Ryan mcgee. Espn daily's chief. Paint trading correspondent. Thank you for joining me man. That's me man when i started. Espn a really really long. Time ago and i had this accent there were like. Hey you know about nascar right. I go yes you do. More than just know about nascar ryan you have now reported and narrated a new film for east sixty and it's called intimidator the lasting legacy of dale earnhardt. And i wanna talk to you about it today because it's a lot. It's about a lot more than how transcendent dale was on the track. It focuses on how he radically changed. Nascar's culture when it comes to safety but before we get into that. I do want you to just kinda sketch out for us. Who dale was for the uninitiated here and what made him such a towering figure in the nascar universe well and it's interesting because he's been gone twenty years i mean nascar's more than seven hundred races without del earnhardt and so for those of us of a certain age the idea of having to explain him and and why he's such a big deal seems insane but we saw what the last dance. The last dance ron's and half of twitter was like well. He was good. But you know this jordan character. Yeah we should know about it and we were so offended but bless their hearts. They didn't see him play. And so in this case you know. You have an entire generation twenty years exactly of sports fans who didn't see our heart race but it wasn't just about seventy six wins seven championships and also was just about the presence in the room. Always say with dell earnhardt if there was a thousand of us in a ballroom and we're all looking at a stage and he were to come in the back door when none of us were looking. We'd all instinctively. Just turn around because the air in the room changed. There was just a presence in a way that it carried himself and conducted his business and the intimidator thing that was legit. Every time i will. I know him. And every time i was in a room with him there was a little part of me. That was just trying not to say something stupid or pass out so on the back of the baseball card ryan so to speak. What are the accomplishments. That people should know about what dale did. Well the seventy six winds are really big deal but the seven championships and seventy plus year. The stockcar racing only three people one seven championships the checkered flag bands around their heat waves to them. That checkered card. His greatest success was on the super speedways. the taliban soup speedway and daytona he one thirty four racists and though tone national speedway thirty four nella one of those was the daytona five hundred and that was part of the appeal for him was even though he was this one tough customer and the man in black timid and all those things it took you twenty tries to finally win the daytona five hundred lawson in heartbreaking fashion multiple times twenty years frustration. Taylor that program names on the can't take it off. I guess i love it. He just he was in every man but he also of superman and that was always the appeal and outside of that ballroom. Full of the sports powerbrokers ryan. What was his status. Like regionally among the nascar faithful. How would you begin to describe what he meant to those people. What i hated it. Because when he came along in the late nineteen seventies. and you know it wasn't disrespect. But he didn't back down from. Richard petty from kailua from bobby allison from david pearson from any pissed them off the couldn't stand him and he would recommend a short track race. In martinsville and afro richer. Penn is electric. Listen kid you can't do it like this. And he just kept doing his way.

"Ca just cranked up the grill going on a rare by portabella spare guests a baked potato. Get ready for some bama basketball. And i'm having a crown. Seven listened to the finebaum show too blessed to be stressed today. Hey y'all two questions for you Hearing about this eighteen playoff. So let's talk about this. We might so if we go to the eighteen this year. We're looking at probably add. Texas ahah neil probably georgia cincinnati. Oklahoma and florida would have beat alabama or not you but let me let me let me say something to you though i try. I don't think that's how it would work because to get to get college football to agree. You're going to have to give them something in return. So here's what here's how it would look. You would have the five power. Five conference champions. That's the only way these commissioners are going to buy into it. And then you'll get a group of five who gets automatically and then there will be two at large so you would have cincinnati club and you would have oregon and oklahoma before you got and then texas. Am and who would in one more school would get in. Oh come on now. We can't have no rainfall allows conference trae. That's not how you and i would do it but you you have you have to remember. We're not running it. The commissioners have college. Football are sitting in that room. And that's the only way. I think they'll sign off. I can agree with you but you know what the narrative would be if it come to that but my my other thing is about the national championship game played on monday. And i keep hearing everybody's saying it can't be played on that saturday before. I really don't understand why we can't play that championship game about one o'clock afternoon and then have the nfl player games. Not until three and the other one's not until seven or eight. What a way to start your saturday. I mean you get everybody together wants to college championship game and then you got to. Nfl playoff games. I think it'd be great for college and the nfl trae. I don't. I don't think college would agree to it And i have to go to a break here because they the best ratings are late in the afternoon early evening and on monday the later you go the better allegedly and secondly i don't think they wanna share the spotlight with the. Nfl college football at least on monday night. Four weeks ago is standalone. It's the only game in town. And i don't think they would want to go off the air at four o'clock in the afternoon knowing that are two. Nfl games from. Maybe i've been around these guys too long quick break more to come. We will chat with ryan mcgee and a few minutes. More of your phone calls right around the corner listening to paul. Finebaum show podcast. We welcome you back. It's great to have all of you here on a tuesday afternoon. And then he serious. Sports fan knows this weekend. The daytona five hundred and it also will mark the twentieth anniversary of the death of the king of the sport the intimidator dale earnhardt death at the five hundred twenty twenty years ago. Still haunt many many people ryan has chronicled that not only on. Espn dot com. But this sunday in an east. Sixty presentation and ryan joins us now ryan. Thank you very much for being here. Good afternoon to talk to you. Paul spent too long. And i know that when i start talking about dale earnhardt. You're gonna wanna talk about it because that's that's your entire nascar like beat writer career it is in a somewhat ended around them. But i did did did not like you. But i was around him a couple of times and what a charismatic guy and his death ryan famous destined sports and i know we went through one a year ago with kobe bryant but too many people nothing will ever shatter their emotion. More than thinking back to that sunday at daytona. Yeah it's just the circumstances were so extraordinarily terrible and and if you had written that into a film it would have been sent back like. There's no way that that could actually happen. In real life for the biggest star in the sport to die in the final turn of the daytona five hundred as he was watching two cars the he owned including his son. Sell off toward the checkered flag. And just the circumstances were so in in in people may not know this but you know. He had struggled for several years leading up to the the previous year. Two thousand but then he got his health back order. He got his back straightened out and he finished second in the championship. Standings at the age of forty nine the year before and so there was this. Build up to this earnhardt resurgence. Maybe a chance to win a championship and finally like a a a one on one. Showdown with jeff gordon and it. Just it was. All fox was putting a billion dollars in a televised nascar for the first time. It was their first race. And so all those things that it up and It's hard explain to people paul. I was never in the room of brian. But i was in the room with dale earnhardt and and it just was always say if there were a thousand people in a ballroom all watching a screen and he walked in the back door without any announcement..

"We're joined by one of our favorite and most frequent guests the eloquent in the talented gifted Ryan McGee Ryan. Thank you for being with us. It has been. It has been an interesting week. If that's the way to put it in your world of course the Daytona five hundred. Most the race delayed until Monday. Horrific crash involving Ryan Newman on the final lap. You were at the hospital at Halifax Medical Center Daytona. The news was good. Where do we stand right? Now as we speak on Ryan Newman's situation well Ryan Newman is home in North Carolina Against all odds. He went home on Wednesday afternoon. I mean everyone was stunned including those of us who stood outside the hospital for twenty four hours that that right after our return home all of us did. He walked out the front door with his two daughters and so he is back in North Carolina. He will be watching The Cup race all all the NASCAR action this weekend from the Las Vegas Motor speedway from his home in Charlotte and In his plan is to try to be back in the race car As quickly as possible. Maybe even the next weekend my my gut instinct after twenty five years to cover motor. Sports is He will be back in the car that quickly but my gut instinct thankfully has been completely wrong Ever since I saw his crush so he has continued to prove me wrong and I hope that he continues to do so. What was your gut instinct? When you saw the crash from your perspective well all standing in Victory Lane at Daytona. We were waiting for them to the racing. It's the worst place at the Daytona International Speedway to watch the race. Because you only have this small window where you can see the cars coming down the front stretch. Just as they've passed underneath the starter stand and as they went by His car was airborne and I saw land Was Hit by the car of coral joy. No fault of his own. What concern me and concerned. Anyone who knows anything about auto racing is that Korea joys car hit Ryan Newman's car right in the window net and so for the folks don't know that basically the only soft spot on the race car too. That's where the driver's head is There's no window there it's just a it's just net and so that was the concern. Was that the impact was right. There where Ryan Newman's head would have been while he was hanging upside down. And that's that's what's frightened. Me Is what frightened. Everyone and I mean they're outstanding lane with a lot of old school hardened racers and they all had that look on their face like. We're not saying word until we know something and thankfully two hours later We have much better news than we expected. We're speaking Ryan McGee. About Ryan Newman in the crash occurred Monday at the Daytona. Five hundred race won for the second consecutive year by Denny Hamlin and Ryan. There was a time of course when crashes such as what we saw. Monday were not uncommon and sadly of course deaths on the track. We're not all that uncommon but that's changed over the years. What does it say about the state of NASCAR The that this was such a shock to the system this week. Well what it says. We've been spoiled. We have we become safety spoiled in the sport because No driver has has died in a crash in NASCAR's top. Three national series. That's the cup series is expanding. It's also the truck series to three national. No one has died in a race car in this series since February. Eighteenth two thousand one and that was Dale Earnhardt and You know almost quit covering the sport In the late nineties early two thousands. Because Jeremy I got to the point where every time I went to the race track I was convinced I would be covering a funeral next week. I mean I was there for nearly a half a dozen driver deaths. I was there for a half a dozen fan deaths And then when I wasn't there in person I was still having to write and produce the obituaries for the likes of Adam. Petty and Kenny. Irwin and Tony Roper. And it wasn't just NASCAR. It was also open-wheel racing. It was drag racing. It was And it just got to the poor. My wh what are we doing? And I talked to my friends who had covered the sports the sport in the sixties and they said this is as bad as this ever been and unfortunately what it took was for. Superman to die. Which is what happened when Dale Earnhardt died? You know these other guys young guys right whatever. These are inexperienced guys. That's how they could kinda write that off. Once Dale Earnhardt was gone. The toughest of the tough guy who raced with a broken collarbone race with a cracked skull. All these things back in the day. When when del on her senior was gone. It forced everyone to mandate safety devices that already existed. Head and neck restraints and close face ellison custom-built seats and the way the roll bar sentence safer barrier soft walls that we saw. Ryan Newman hit all all of the things that were implemented in the weeks after Dale Earnhardt's death or what Save Ryan Newman o-on tonight we're speaking with Ryan McGee about Nascar and about the Daytona five hundred which took place on Monday and when we saw that crash at it was so horrific it seems miraculous that anybody could be walking away from that even if it's forty eight hours later out of the hospital that picture now which is gone viral him walking out of the hospital holding the hands. I think his two daughters. Right Ryan and For someone like Ryan Newman a veteran in his forties. Who's been doing this long time? How do you expect this to affect him as he continues to pursue a career in this sport? I don't believe it will and I say that because I mean this is a guy who has done this since I mean for racer like Ryan Newman for Jeff Gordon. For a tiny Stewart for a dollar junior. You know the rest of us we play. T-ball these guys weren't quarter midgets for the rest of us. We may be played. Pop Warner football and these guys were already racing on half mile race tracks in sprint cars. You mean like when they're eight years old when they're nine years old they're they're going one hundred and fifty miles an hour. Exactly they're doing and they're in these monstrous machines and so for a guy like Ryan Newman. Who came up through the exact same midwestern Usak Sprint car ladder? As a J. Foyt as Mario Andretti is Jeff Gordon. he was. Kinda the next in that line and so you know. He's always been very critical of Superspeedway racing in NASCAR. But he's always done it and he's won a Daytona five hundred and he almost one another on Monday night and so I don't believe this will slow him down. It might make him take Paul's as a father Am I making take policies as a husband? His marriage was already That he and his wife had just admitted publicly the week before this that they were separated. And maybe this will made him make him take pause about those things. But I don't believe it will make him take pause when it comes to driving racecars. Ease it problematic Ryan in any way when you see something like that and then you see. Ryan Newman fortunately walk away from it. I if not unscathed seemingly okay. Let's put it that way that it creates a false sense of complete confidence in the safety of the sport. Which of course it isn't and can never be. That's what was so fascinating and I use that word now because I'm looking back on it. Fortunately that's what was so fascinating about that experience on Monday night and Tuesday Daytona. Because again for someone who covered all his deaths. And who who still? I'm still occurring. Deaths and other forms of motorsports but for someone. Who's dealt with that? It was interesting watching the crew members in the media core and the tracks staffers who weren't around in two thousand one because those of us of a certain age all had that look on her face and it was muscle memory. We all kind of fell back onto. This is now. I remember how to react to this. And how to handle this and then you saw an entire generation who did not and this was my column. Row FOR UCF DOT COM. Which was we become? You know kind of safety spoiled and this was a reminder because yes he literally walked away out of the hospital on Wednesday but it is a reminder that you can make this as safe as you possibly can but at the end of the day it will never be truly safe and and anyone who needed wakeup call in that. I believe they got it on Monday. Night is there anything to be set or is this just the perspective of someone who doesn't follow sports closely whose only covered maybe one race ever that. I can remember And didn't grow up with it that if danger isn't there is some of the appeal gone. I mean I know. That's that's an old horse that steps taken out and discussed a lot but but he's a true is true and there were actually in recent years there were columns written has nascar become too safe and this was the debate that I've had with people as Nascar's popularity waned as the television ratings. Went Down One of the questions that was asked. And it's a long list of reasons for for why that's happened but one of the questions that I've been asked a lot is is it too safe. Is that danger. Element gone? But you know there's always going to be the people who quote Hemingway right there only. What three True Sports? What mountain climbing bowl bullfighting and auto racing? They said everything else is just a game. And that's fine but But also like to quote another pretty good writer Bruce Springsteen Who said I like my heroes? My Gods Grizzled in alive and that's how I feel you Brusca was he said I'm going out. A blaze of glory is bull bleep. And that's That's kind of where I am with it. I I've been enough funerals a race car drivers that I will I'll try to a little bit of Of Danger to keep his guys around and tell me the stories in person as opposed to me having to dig him out of my memory well said Ryan and I think I said old horse. I don't know what that means. I think I meant old saw so I apologize for that. I try to be precise with my language. I followed you and by the way you don't remember this the first time I met you was at the Daytona International speedway. Come on the one time. Was that ninety nine. You're on a golf cart with one of our fearless field producers got Seeber's Downer shadowing..

"You could check out Marty and McGee on the SEC network. He joins US now. We thank him for doing so. What are the details? That you've found found interesting watching Ryan. What happened with two on Saturday beyond just being sad and bummed for him well? The sad embalmed part heart is the part that stands out to me because like I was in the SEC network office yesterday and is like this Paul over the billing rolling and it's not that everyone is rooting for Alabama or whatever. It's just a reminds me so much of Marcus. Lattimore who is the great South Carolina running back who had his knee you completely blown apart And dislocated Against Tennessee and he had come back from an injury to the other knee. And I'm around went down to James Andrews this place In Pensacola and hung out with him for a couple of days and I just remember everyone being so like people would never met him before being so upset and it feels the same way about two because as close as is he's just a good kid and you see saving who is you know the stonefaced unemotional robot and and he's trying his best to hold it together when he's talking about it but but the part that you now we're balancing the whole. What's he gonNA do his future and is he okay in the in the immediate the future and that's the part of it's interesting watching the NFL world in the college world and the personal world? All kind of Collides Ryan. It's easy to question the Nick Sabin now for playing to Lord knows I did it yesterday. I've spent in fact since Saturday. It's all I've done is blamed for but I'm wondering. was anyone doing it on the front end. was anyone saying that we should not have played in that game. There was a little bit of it. I mean there there certainly was And you could even hear it in the voices of the folks that the cover that team day the day whether it's the beat writers or whether it's the home team radio guys who. I was listening to on satellite radio and so there was a little bit of that. Starting which is you know when he tried it out. There for that drive in particular is like I. You know this is probably going to be you know you Kinda Kinda feel that so. Yeah I think there was a little bit of guessing guessing on the front end. But you know people don't get inhabit of of of guessing went of second guessing a while he's doing it But Yeah but after the fact obviously obviously you're not alone. I think we're all like you know what the hell were you thinking. ESPN senior writer. Ryan McGee with Marty and McGee is on the SEC Network Art Ryan. This is To his injuries. Similar to the one that ended Bo Jackson's career. What's the foundation of the optimism about to making a full recovery recovery? Well he's younger You know I've got a fifteen year old daughter. She scrapes her knee and heels in like two days. I scratch my face shaving and you got that scar all mark mcghee for the rest of my life has just you know. It's good to be young and it's good to have those genetics and obviously we've seen him recover From pretty serious injuries series. Before and Bo Jackson was older Bo Jackson Got Back on that hip a lot quicker that he probably should have and then obviously the medicine is way better than it was then so I think that's where it's coming from is there's A. There's a track record. Unfortunately that we've seen him recover You know from a pretty significant significant surgery he had after the SEC championship game a year ago and didn't play great but he certainly played in the cost of all playoff just five weeks later so History history says he will recover This is also just a completely different monster. I mean he he will not throw a football until way after the first of the year and he's certainly position to to be working out for anyone and again it goes back to Marcus lattimore. I remember Doing his pro day at University of South Carolina and he just walked walked through a couple of of pass routes and he got a standing ovation from the NFL scouts. Because everyone knew how hard it worked at that point so To is going to be. You're doing anything strenuous for a long time. And I think that's smart because They might a rushing back a little quickly last year. How much money does this cost him? How far do you imagine I'm dropping? Well I think the bigger question is did you go back to school You know no one's talking about that much. He has a year left so you know. Does he go back in and does he spend a year with that medical staff. Alabama's really good and James Andrews is just down the street and they have lots of helicopters copters airplanes to get him where he needs to go and does he go back to Tuscaloosa and spend a year and and yeah he plays but the more important thing is that he He rehabs and a pretty good situation. So but yeah I mean he's he's dropping like a rock right now and the and again we've seen this before with other players that You know somebody will roll the dice on him if he does enter the draft and I think that will work out for them but But you know I. He listened to me but but if I was talking to him I would say seriously consider perhaps going by Tuscaloosa for your risking injury for no money so that would be the advice. I would give him. I would say. Let's let's play it out this way. Right what if I told you he's going to recover. Spend a year not gonNA play football and all he's GonNa spend that time recovering from this surgery from this injury and then go back into the draft Rath. Heck yeah no I think you would if he recovers the way that everyone seems to think that he's going to recovers the way that he has in the past. I think you know go somewhere. And let the people do what they have to do. And don't rush it because you know he's still a kid and there is still a year to play with here no matter where he spends that that year so yeah I mean go get better you doing Tuscaloosa do it back in Hawaii do it. You know at some camped. None of us can afford to go to do. Do something Just to get yourself better and I know it well enough to know I mean patience is kind of his thing and you know he. He's a meditative type of guy so so I wouldn't be surprised if it exactly what we're talking about if He does stay in the twenty twenty draft. I guess that's a given that he goes after Joe Borough and and just in Herbert but uh how far do you see him. Are you talking about. Are you thinking that this might be second third round fourth-round some of the stuff. That happened a lot of more. There's just too many question marks and also I mean quite frankly you look at this year in this quarterback crop that we got. I'm not sure he wasn't dropped into that group a little bit anyway and so now You know if he's getting in line behind borough and is getting loud behind fields or whoever else of his former teammate. jalen hurts he gets in line behind these guys anyway And now you had the injury. Yeah I think it's if he's drafted. It's going to be a somebody that says all right. Let's sit here. Wait and see if we can say say it Ryan McGee was going to be a patriots. Just go ahead and say break the new just say just say it and and by the way the like the only person person that possibly can ever make village smile nick saving and you know they've already been on the phone you know care immediately called. Hey I'm really sorry but this guy being heard what do you think my chances are getting them in the fourth round. The day permitting the Lago ought not fair now wondering you've even heard all of the vague on purpose. This is the greatest possible reaction. I could get the saying that because there was a second where I thought do I say it out loud and then I did and it was everything that I dreamed that it it would be Ryan. Thank you for being on with us. We appreciate it. ESPN senior writer at Checkout Marty. And McGee on the SEC network. Thank you sir.

"It is brought to you by straight talk wireless. We are going to talk to Someone who knows more about this to a story than we do in about fifteen minutes Ryan McGee. ESPN senior writer is going to get us. Informed on all of that collegiate injustice. That do you have I know many of you don't care about this but I don't believe that any player in college should be taking painkillers or anything to mute pains gene so they can go out there and destroy their bodies and not make money for it so we will talk to him about some of that stuff in about fifteen minutes. NFL fine. You're making your own money. How you do it in college you doing it for Nick Sabin Yeah? It's it's one of the things that bothers me about shamateurism and the idea that it's just professional football in disguise guys So a professional minor league feeding the actual place where you get paid but a tweeter writes in your out of your mind on this Cabernet topic topic out of your mind. I'll be back in a few weeks when you were done talking about him. I'd advise you to not come back. Just keep walking keeping moving. You don't have they ever come back. We'll be fine. Don't need you take a walk and just keep on walking and fact. Don't come back in fact. I'm not just guiding you away from this it's just don't come back. It'll be fine. Thanks for listening as long as you did please stay. I don't want that person I don't know we don't want all people. I don't want that person. We are an inclusive show. We want all people.

"New direction and with playoff team so we interrupted we always always love those commercials. All of you know the happy music in the background and makes it seemed like the side effects aren't too bad if you have you know anal leakage and spinal fluid fluid build up as long as you can get control on your sniffling. I want to continue the thought. That Greg Greg Cody was having here and writing what it is that I take is doing with this Afro of Colin Kaepernick has been behind Stephen a Smith for two straight. Today's nonstop and I wonder what you guys think when you hear and I've heard a lot in the media got a kowtowing her job interview if you WanNa work when you. Here's Stephen Smith. Because he got there immediately with Colin Kaepernick does not want to play football. When you hear that allegation filed that accusation filed at Colin Kaepernick? You guys think what I think. Colin Kaepernick wants to play football. I think Colin Ellen Cabinet also wants to continue to deliver the messages that he's been delivering and it's a big platform playing the NFL's opposed to not playing in the NFL. Have A lot. More ears is a lot more eyeballs on them. I think Colin just I think he feels like Hey I am good enough. I shouldn't have to do this dog and pony show. You just signed me. Just the accusation itself the accusation itself. This guy doesn't actually want to play your thought. There are what I think. It's a flagrant accusation and if capital says says it's not true Kapernick says directly. I'm ready been ready. I'll continue to be ready. That sounds like a guy who wants to play. And it's ridiculous that he's had to go through this Organiz his auction when Or audition for the past two and a half years. Any team in the League can call him up for an interview. Fly Him in for a workout give him a physical. Why is it starting now for two and a half years he's been blackballed out of work? NFO quarterback free for any team to sign and now all of a sudden they have to hold and organize workout. It's ridiculous reason that I find that criticism interesting though is because it plays so much of the absolutism that you find find sports debate as if it can be that thing and only that thing it's only allowed to be he wants to play in the NFL or or he doesn't want to play in the NFL as if it can't be he wants to play in the NFL and also he's got other things that are principles other responsibilities that make get a little bit difficult for him to go in now with the kind of knee that the NFL is going to accept and so it can be both of those things. It's allowed allowed to be both of those things because it is both of those things on the other end for the employer because the employer would like his skill set in that league and and not as much as it wants to keep all of what happened this weekend out of its league and so all of these things are allowed to coexist exists the part that I marvel at Marvel at this till my dying day in sports so many of you are employees so many of you listening to this our employees who work for bad bosses or bosses who are unfair and you go home and you're complain to your wife or your significant other of how you're being wronged by your boss and then in this instant your pro management and you file it under Pro America but you're pro- management you think he should go in there and grovel and beg for a job humbled to play in the NFL. Even if it means compromising principles that mattered to him that are what are making him the mortar that he is in America in fairness to those people I agree with everything. You're saying here in fairness those people they're probably saying. Hey that's what I would do if I had an opportunity to leave the job of currently in and play quarterback in the NFL talented. Then be better what you do. ooh Don't envy another man because he's better at what he does than you are. What you do is more valuable at what he does? Then you are what you do. I'm thinking about this for a while. How many of these fans that are questioning? His motives remember the original message why he was protests in the first place. Because I don't remember at all well. The My mentions are a dumpster dumpster. Fire where people just want to talk about this guy's skill set or whether he's past his prime and I'm I'm more interested in the way that this is being talked about about specifically on television and specifically on this network where Stephen a Smith is banging the drum for this is the status quo quote. This is the reality of the world. We live in Colin Kaepernick. You can't make this a circus. You have to go in and placate the white man even though all of this stuff all of it risks the discomfort of the white man like. That's you don't get attention on this stuff unless the white man is made uncomfortable the white man runs that entire sport at the very highest level. The people who are hiding the bushes on this are the owners. Yeah Stephen is saying you can't have it both ways you can't play in the. NFL continued to do the work. And say the things you want to say and bought a lot of people bowl myself included. Feel that college. It'd be able to do exactly that but I ride with Max Kellerman on this. When I'm watching? I take and I see that Stephen. A Smith is protecting the status quo. Oh well Max Kellerman is sitting here telling us be better be better. Don't protect the status quo like leads it. Lets US spire to be the country that we are and this this the. NFL's brand is one of the top five brands. In America. Be Better of of course. Kapernick should be allowed to play for an NFL team and also continue his his protest by kneeling during the national anthem. If he chooses always right the whole narrative has been hijacked. It's not an anti-american protest. It's an it's a social justice. I I don't WanNa have that conversation again. We've been having that conversation for three years what I want to ask the audience is. Why do you need this man to beg? Why do you you want him to beg to these owners? What is happening inside of you? That makes you feel like he should bend on a knee or both knees if you prefer her and begged to these rich people. I'm trying to tell you most people if they were told they had to beg to get into the NFL to play quarterback and make millions of dollars. They can be more principled than that because they're bigger causes than being the backup quarterback for the Raven. was this begging though. This is sign a waiver is it. This isn't this begging and to your the point about the NFL being better. They're probably throwing their hands up screaming. We're trying we're trying. Yeah we didn't nail it we try to putting a workout. At the Falcons conciliarity. We hired Jay Z. We don't know what we're doing with any of this. We're trying to be better and yes. It's embarrassing trying. Okay be better than that. I'm trying not enough for your time on enough on the rings on Mondays when we're sitting here covering football try. Philip rivers was trying last night. We being nice as the him about trying to drive for three years. This is the best I could come up with. Come on Jay Z. We all liked him before. NFL Seinfeld.

Zion Williamson out of Duke-UNC game for knee injury after blowing out his shoe
"With last night's big story and that was the Zion Williamson injury. If you happen to miss it. Of course, he was the big game everybody that was you know, everybody excited going into last night's nine PM eastern tip off UNC Duke. It's one game that everybody gets excited for every year. And especially this year with giant Williamson and everything he has done for the blue devils and thirty three seconds in Zion goes down. He tries to make a move near the top of the key plants, his left foot and his shoe. Disintegrates he blows out the shoe to a point that I don't think I've ever seen anything like that grabs the knee unable to play for the rest of the game. Do goes on to lose big at home. Final is eighty eight seventy two sixty two points of those eighty eight that UNC scored came the paint clearly a huge hole left by Williamson. But the big question that everybody wanted to know after the game was is. I n okay is his left knee. Okay. Coach K, please. Tell US House I doing so mild knee sprain. Nia stable. We don't know how long he'll be out. I think we'll find out more about that. It's crazy that the two games we've lost here. Something's happened in the first part of the game. And the preparation that. You would have for the game is obviously based on. Your players being there, and especially he and Archer who are who are the key guys. And so it puts everyone. State of. Trying to figure it out while while you're playing outstanding team. That's not a good situation. And obviously Duke did not figure that out. That's coach Mike shoshefsky. And this is first and last I'm Gabe Nigel on ESPN radio. But it seems that John is going to be okay. The fact that coach K called a mild knee sprain. Is of just a knee sprain. Seems that whenever there's the potential to be something worse with the knee teams will throw out the generic term knee sprain. But coach K getting a little bit more specific they're calling it a mild knee sprain. Saying that the knee is indeed stable still don't know. How much time Zion is going to miss them guessing going to miss some time. But the fact that it seems that he is going to be okay. Makes it okay that we all made jokes last night about Nike's expense on Twitter and on Instagram on Facebook on social media, and poooest gotta know betterman Puma even sent out a tweet Puma was throwing shade at Nike because the shoe blew out. And every story that I'm reading there was an ESPN dot com. You're you're reading the story. And specifically you see the Nike shoe like Nike just continues to get thrown under the bus, his his his left Nike basketball shoe fell hard as he planted tripling near the free throw line on the opening play. That's from Ryan McGee over at ESPN dot com. And it was blowing up so bad on social media team people going after Nike that Nike had to release a statement this morning. We are obviously concerned and want to wish I on a speedy recovery. The quality and performance of our products are of utmost importance while this is an isolated occurrence. We are working to identify the issue. But then Puma jumped in they deleted the tweet but come on. This is social media. You can't throw up a tweet, especially one that's gonna throw some shade. And not have everybody notice and have people grab screen shots. So while Puma Puma hoops deleted this tweet. Happened in the Pumas Terry Rozier, even getting in on the action come over to Puma. Everybody had jokes about oh, everyone. Adidas under armor there in. That's the those are the shoe company. Science going to sign with after he leaves Duke this year. Seventy having a little bit of fun at at at Nike's expense because the shoe blows up. We're being honest. I think I think Nike's built up enough. Goodwill over the last three decades of basketball shoes. That we can have some fun with it last night. But after that, it's all going to be forgotten that it was necessarily a Nike shoe that blew up on Zion. And I guarantee it has nothing to do with zion's shoe decision. When he heads to the NBA this
