"Here, but I have to agree with Al. I do think Pepperdine wins tonight. I think they win by more than three or four because I don't to me. Pepperdine's a really good offensive team and I don't think they can stop some of these look at this game and you know the they turned the ball over a little bit. They fouled a lot. They don't mean price. Hamilton's a really good score, but Pepperdine has a good eye on the ball Defender. That's him. Colby Ross Kessler, Edward said that he mentioned the depth. I think pepper time wins this game by five or six point Now, I think double digit spread could be 5.5. I think I wouldn't be surprised. Listen, if you would all be wins this game, it Z their best one of these big deal. It's a big deal. If they win this round, and they did play Davidson tough. They did beat a really bad Kansas State team. But I just think that this this pepper dine team is Don't think I don't think they're really, really only way I could really go through. Things need to happen if you know the ones this game tonight against pepper time, and I don't think both will happen, But they both need to happen for you. It'll be to win. You know, he has to shoot the ball. Really good. Hold on for three. You know he needs to shoot the ball well from three That's just the bottom line. And then the second up. Part of that is that's not good enough. You also have to get stops. Every possession needs to be. Every shot needs to be contested. I haven't seen that with this team. Kansas State is an offensively challenged team. Okay, I'm trying to be nice here, right there. They're terrible. Okay, If you and Alvey is going to even come close to winning this game they have To be competitive and physical on the defensive end. I don't know if they could do that. Let me tell you something. I watched this pepper 10 people. You see? L A say what you want about U C l A. They're probably not a top 25 team, but they're very good defensively. Absolutely 25. Right, Brian. I've just been a future wager on them to win it all last. OK? Well, yeah, that That's not gonna happen. They're not good enough offensive that they are. No, I disagree. Did you watch the game? I did. I watched them play all year, and then they just played. There were 4.5 point favorites. I came up with a plan. I actually had usually in that game, but I watched that game they played except the market. They beat Marquette by, like, seven right at us, and they're going to get better. Okay. Good coach. They're going to get better. I'm just telling the size. I don't even think that I don't even think they make the sweet 16. I think they're offensively challenged anyway. Now that my going back going back to what I was just saying this Pepper dine team took them to triple overtime. Against U C L A telling you Right now, you and I, we would have no chance to take U C l A to overtime. Pepper Dine is a better basketball, so it would be, you know, 20. All I'm saying is, I'm focused on the game tonight, Not in early and you said, I'm just making that point. Pepperdine's a better basketball team, okay? They're coming into the Thomas and Mack their favorite for a reason. They're just a better team. But with that being said, I do think you and I, we have a chance to win. I just don't think they will win tonight. There's there's a difference, and I want to move on. And by the way, I'd be going to the game tonight. It'll be the first normal thing I've done since since contracting the coronavirus. I'm coronavirus negative, so it'll be nice to be able to go to a game and do something normal because I haven't done anything normal in six weeks. So, uh, it'll be fun for me just from a personal note just to be able to go to the game. Wanna switch topics real quickly, And we have Brian someone who was the head sports anchor for Channel three. Who's gonna be joining us every Monday. I'm very happy to say Brian's a good friend of mine, and he's really good at what he does, and he's gonna be joining us at 11 30, But I want to switch topics quickly. We're gonna get to Brian Solomon in regards to the Las Vegas Raiders, the debacle of a football game that was yesterday, firing their defensive coordinator. And the excuses. Well, we didn't have this guy out there. We don't have that guy out there. I'm sorry, but Jon Gruden no excuses. Your team has been awful The last three weeks. We'll get to that with Brian Summon, speaking of another team that has been awful, and I'm not going to sit here and mince words. And I know some shows want to do two hours talking about UNLV football and about how their quarterback was eating sushi, often naked supermodel. I know some shows like doing stuff like that. I really could care less. I'm just going to talk about Coach Royal, and I think it's been an embarrassment. Not I think I know it's had been in Embarrassing year and I know a lot of people are going to give him a pass. They lost their last kind of have to. No, I'm not. I'm not S O. They finished the year winless. 16, which is an embarrassment in itself. There are few really good teams in the mountain West, By the way, the Mountain West Conference championship game is going to be at Sam Boyd Stadium. By the way, you want to talk about a weird year. Really, That's cool. Who's hold on? I'll get that is Addison. Right? I'll get to that a second. No New Mexico. I don't know if you're aware of this. They played all their home games in Las Vegas. They've been playing it Sam Boyd Stadium, So we had a game at Sam Boyd Stadium over the weekend, where Fresno came to town and play New Mexico this weekend, San Jose State There's gonna be playing in the championship game against Boise State. San Jose State is calling Sam Boyd Stadium their home. That's their home because they can't play in California. So this is just this is just a really weird season. So we're gonna have the Mountain West championship game at Sam Boyd Stadium on Saturday. San Jose State and Boise State. Two pretty good football teams, So that is going to be a good game. Listen, there's some there's some decent football teams in the mountain West. You and all the ain't one of them. Here's why I disagree with you say you can't criticize Coach Royal Listen. He didn't have talent. He had a little bit of time to recruit. He didn't have talent. But this team is soft. This is a team that is just got beaten up physically. And that's why they went on six..

"Is a That's a team that's pulling on the same rope, man. They are They're loving each other. What a performance Friday Night. The story of the weekend. The story of the year Now ranked Yeah. San Jose State Spartans. She get the big win over Nevada, 30 to 20 Friday night, earning them a spot. In Friday night's or I should say it's Saturday. Wait, I'm sorry, Saturday Afternoons Mountain West Championship game against Boise State at Sam Boyd Stadium that 2020 Mountain West Championship game on the line. And bread. Brennan, the man who's got one more game to coach this week. It ain't over yet, but we definitely want to enjoy the journey and check in with a man we've had on the show before, but never when he's six and owned ranked number. 25 So Brent Welcome back through the Murphy Mac Show on the Yuma Guest line. Brian Murphy, Paul McCaffrey. Congratulations on Not just a great season but are not just great game, but a great season to how you doing, Brent, I'm doing great doing great fired up for this week. Tell us man. What's the What's the plan right now? You guys are in Vegas. You gotta get back to work. Yeah, You sort of have to compartmentalize that emotion from Friday and get back to work. So what's the strategy? Yeah, absolutely. You know, obviously, the last two weeks have been really interesting for our football team. Just moving all over the place to home games. We're supposed to be accepted stadium. They get moved. We're on the road in Hawaii. Then we're flying to Vegas, and we're playing in Vegas and living in a hotel. I got a little laundry going right now in the basement, you know, so it Z. It's just, you know, whatever we could do to continue to play football. And it's such an exciting time for us, and so we're absolutely embracing it, and I don't know. You know when you guys get together and you talk about the I don't want to say adversity because you guys get to play football for a living, but the sort of uncertainty having to fly to Honolulu out of nowhere, having to go down to Vegas and take on Nevada is there I mean, it's sort of a cliche, but is there a bonding effect or an us against the world effect that sits in? Absolutely, I mean, that's been our mindset all year when it started when we had to go toe humbled state to practice, right. You know the beauty of what's going on here. So we just have this incredible administration. Our president, Dr Papa Zeon, our athletic director, Marie Tuite, continuing and then the support of just the academic and the athletic community of San Jose State just keeps pushing us forward and given us a chance to play. So that us against the World American Man, That's kind of a sales a state thing anyway. Right Like candles, A state Spartans are always overcoming odds against them, right? I mean, that's kind of our thing, So it's been incredible challenge. It's been a lot of fun, but these players have been absolutely incredible. I mean, these kids haven't seen their parents since July. 14th most of them, you know, so it's been, it's been a little plenty of adversity. Yeah. Is that right? A lot of them haven't seen their parents since July. Yes, And and that's the challenge of all right, cause we have to protect this covert bubble and Then the parents aren't allowed to come to the games, which is such a big part of the college experience. So I give all the credit to our players. The young men have been absolute amazing. We have finals week last week. We still got some finals overlap this week. There is a lot going on for these young men, but they continue to show up and put in the work and just care about each other. It's so fun. We're climbing a mountain baby. You really are, And I want to get into some of the stuff that happened Friday and Boise State. But just back to your big picture thing about Sam is a state because in your resume you were there from 05 to 10 as an assistant, right so So you know the culture, you know that you don't always have all the resources. You don't always have all the recruits right to you. Two people who are just gonna climb aboard your bandwagon for the week here and get onto you guys. How would you explain the and what? Your dad? Your dad played there, right? And I mean, how do you explain the culture In what? You what you like? How Don't know how the culture affects the program. You know, I would say, first ball, anybody looking to jump on the bandwagon? I would say, Let's go jump on, Let's let's let's roll any room way. Love it. We love it. But, you know, I think, having been an assistant coach here for six years out your dick Tomey and Mike McIntyre, you know, did Tony was the biggest influence. Me as a man and as a coach and just seeing those two transitions and seeing those those rebuild projects, But, you know, I think when I was here, I always thought Sanders a state could be a winning football program. We have an incredible institution. We have incredible location, and we have the best job market in the history of the world, right right in our backyard, So there was just some pieces in place that we need to get some consistency from consistency and leadership. We have that now with Dr Posy and Emory to it in the rest of presidents Cabinet and and then you know me being here now going in my fourth year on my fourth year and able to keep our staff together. I think that's giving us a chance to play good football. Well, okay, so getting to family connections here and you, you know, you talk about your dad playing there. And you being part of that thing. There are two players on your team that for Polly and I are 40 Niner lunatics, right? So we see a guy named Derrick Deese. Junior. We're like, Wait. What? And then we see Kate Hall and actually want to focus on this right now to close that people missed the game Friday night. You missed an incredible performance. Sam was a state down 27 half roars all the way back. But Nevada looks like they're gonna maybe make a run at you guys, and they got a strong quarterback. But Kate haul your d linemen puts on one of the great individual performances of the year. Rent if you could just take us inside that story because he looked literally exhausted, like like, literally collapsed in between some plays and yet still got out there and sacked the freaking quarterback to clinch the win. Twice. What could you tell us is a coach about that whole performance by Kate Hall down the stretch. Well, I would say that that performance is not unusual. That is Kate Hall, and he is such a special young man. He's a great student. He's a local kid, You know, you know, two of our guys making all kinds of noise in the defensive front or both. Area kids, right Junior Falcone, Kate Hall, But Kate is just an unbelievable young man in every way. He is everything that is right about college football. He is everything that's right about.

"Who's barely got more experienced more? Nfl Experience Than Joe. Borough does right now barely more. He's got four starts and that was last year when he threw for less than fifty percent and got benched again. So you know like the chargers legitimate safety net in tyrod Taylor for the dolphins have a legitimate safety net Ryan Fitzpatrick. The bengals don't have won the Bengals of basically made the decision. I think that decisions academic. Now it'd be really interesting to see what happens with two and with Herbert. What are you guy? I know but I know what's going to happen. Or Josh Rosen. He will be traded to the Bengals to be the backup for another young quarterback there. And we'd just everybody can pass. Josh Rosen around like when you get a young quarterback or you get to eat you need one. Just pass him around or everybody or betrayed in New England. Fulfill is potential. We're GONNA say that right. And he right. Bella check would be the one that would intellectually stimulating him genius. This Guy Got Almighty. My number three is much more of. I've got a couple of sort of bigger. Nfl issue type stuff here. But what happens Bert? If the stadiums in Los Angeles and Las Vegas are not ready to be played in when it comes time to play regular season games. Now I know this is corona virus like in some people might roll their eyes that this but think about what could be the trickle down effect right if this stadium in L. A. Isn't ready to go. That's not one but it's two teams who have to figure it out and you then have a state in California whereas you and I sit here at this point they're debating are there's there are reports out saying that they might do more of the stay at home order for three more months which push it into. July Gavin NEWSOM. The governor out there has been pretty vocal about. Hey we're not going to have live sporting events or at least with fans in the stands for a while so if you wanna go rent the rose bowl or ucla or something like that you know are some of these institutions going to run the risk of pissing off the politico's and it turns into a big mess. I think there could be a a really interesting political trickle down effect in each of the states for these teams. If these stadiums aren't ready to go this is a weird one too because I I mean like look like if they're if la la they would be okay. La The teams can probably go back to their the coliseum 'cause associated with SC. But I don't think the coliseum is the coliseums not like Seo property right isn't the coliseum. I don't think so see and the reason that I left it open is because I don't know the political landscape there meaning would meaning would the governor of California look at Ucla and be like. Hey listen you're state. Don't you dare rent to the NFL. Because their stuff ain't ready. Would there be heat there. Would they just be like? Hey screw the. Nfl has got a ton of money. We're GONNA take their check and let them complain a more interesting question. Part of his. The stadium is pretty close to completion. So I think they'll they'll they'll probably make it. Vegas is interesting to me because so either Sam like I remember doing some reporting on the the the a couple of years ago on on whether or not like the raiders. Could play in Sam Boyd Stadium. Which is the UNLV stadium there temporarily and what someone told me was? That stadium is so dilapidated that it would take over one hundred million dollars like you'd need to invest over one hundred million dollars into that stadium to get ready for an NFL broadcast. Think about that like in that. Money's just gone because UNLV is not going to. Unlv applying UNLV's. Move into the Raiders Stadium Too. So that stadium I. It would just be throwing money into a pit. And so that's why you're hearing about the raiders. If Vegas wasn't ready potentially playing I've heard San Diego but if they if if there's problems in that's not happening right so San Diego. No but I've heard Salt Lake City. I've heard San Antonio I've heard potentially Arizona if like and that's close and they could. I don't know how the schedule is match up. But could they potentially play there so I know that the raiders are the one team of the three that we're discussing here that they've actually actively like looked like okay? Like what would we have to do? And and those are the types of things that we're all going to be a reacting to in the month of July and August as we get pushed into the beginning of the regular season if that even and just jumps right into that like it was right there to like. I don't think enough people are talking about how like training camp might be. Be a problem right. We might have an issue here. Training camp is. We're talking about the end of July and I actually got a hold of like the state of Washington and what what it is in Seattle and they're further along than we are here Massachusetts than California's. The New Jersey is. The Maryland is and Virginia is in Seattle. They're in phase one of reopening and the way that sets up is it's going to get the phase four until they can have gatherings over fifty people right and that is minimum eight weeks from now. So we're talking about middle of July in state that's ahead of a lot of other. Nfl states and there's a coastal state so in the same sort of situation the same sort of situation that the teams the northeast and on the west coast are and so like are the rams and chargers and Niners GonNa be allowed to have gatherings big enough to stage a training camp in July. I is a fair question. It takes about one hundred if you way down right. And it's just players coaches trainers doctors. Cafeteria staff like minor standing talking to some of these teams. You really be stretching at one hundred and fifty people maybe like right so those sorts of gatherings going to be allowable. Yeah is that GONNA be allowable in July. Well Yeah and I know that you can talk about well. We're going to. Have you know each position group and there is no more than maybe ten or twelve and position group and could you have it catered and grabbed their box lunch or something? It's going to require some thought and ingenuity. There's no question to your point. Absolutely there is now. I think for some teams. There's gotta be some real doubt as to how training camp could end up working for them in terms of physically. Where are they going to be able to do it? I wonder if we may have in part virtual training camp this year. Meaning we extend it back for two more weeks of meetings via zoom and you can try to do some Organiz workouts or whatever but I I I sense there's going to be best. Appoint when we move back move back. That's when we moved the season back. Talk Tober I all right all right. My number my number four. Burt quickly will be. And it's what Major League Baseball. All right now will quote unquote business. Be Done between the owners and the players. Meaning we know everyone is going to be rapidly processing information as to how things are going to have to work this year and will enough groundwork before in advance so that everybody can make those decisions seamlessly. The players in the owners are made whole and we can get the watch some football or is this going to get ugly as it is in the NFL. It'll be okay this year. I think the questions are going to be next year. If the revenue is down in the salary cap gets knocked down. What does that mean going? Forward how is this going to affect the television deals? And if you like say like so next year like I've heard like if the salary cap based on the percentage is goes down. Say let's just throw a number out there twenty million next year. That's going to cause major problems right major problems so yeah if the like at that point is the league to the players and say we WANNA flatness out so teams. Don't have to start lopping players off right. Well now. You're going to be borrowing from future years so now it's all right. Well we'll borrow some money from twenty twenty two twenty twenty three so now you're affecting players like two and three years down the line and so I think that's a that's that's going to be a major story line the other thing like with all this uncertainty or teams can assign guys long-term deals hang. That's a question to the chiefs. Do you go in on Patrick Mahomes now or do you wait to see what it looks like. In a year I mean am when it comes to an when it comes to guaranteed money and having to put some of the money in escrow for these contracts. How much cash on hand will owners have? And I know we're getting into the we do some of the business here. What all that are going to be factors and signing players long-term and being able to recruit and like like we're talking about like Balm's it's a player you're sure of right. What about the players? You're like that's a guy like I brought his name. That's a guy like like you know whatever. Here's your blank. Check Mr Mahomes right like what about the like? You're less sure of your probably knocking. Move on guys like that. All right my my thing released all of this to whereas the rest of the sports world look like. We're going to start getting answers on that this weekend. The Bundesliga in Germany reopened. I believe we're two weeks away. Three weeks away from the Premier League in England. I think those laser give the some idea because there's close contact like player to player in those leagues. I think baseball is going to be an important one for them because baseball is not restarting baseball. Starting from zero the same way. They're starting from zero. And so I think that's going to. I mean they won't admit that they're following anybody because this is who they are but over the next couple of months. They have the luxury of getting to watch. What baseball soccer basketball? What hockey. What. All the other sports look like. Yeah you as well I mean and they already started kind of got back into a believe it or not. You know. I'm sure there's GONNA be some Intel the way. Wwe Is Ron. And the fact that they have had their athletes doing their thing. I would like to think that everyone is sharing and sharing alike even though I'm sure the WWE NFL relationship is probably pretty good right now. Considering the XFL is now died. Burt my number five and my last one is we know there's going to be a Tom. Brady effect in Tampa right. But will it be Michael Jordan? Like as we've seen in the last dance where it's hey burs do it. My way or does Brady go in and say I haven't had a guy to throw a go route. Two since Randy Moss Mike Evans. I don't care if you're not exactly at twelve and a half yards on your button hook in between the numbers and the Hash every time because you can converted run a go route and I'll be more than willing to sacrifice..

"So you had a great season as well but they have higher expectations being is on being undefeated for as long as it were they probably thought that they had a real good chance of playing on new year's day of winning the the conference by the AC converts and either it is going to occur because of the loss to Memphis and then the loss a couple weeks later against a navy meanwhile Florida Atlantic I think will be out to prove that yelling Kevin did a good job but we're pretty good football team and we can win without him and you can see from the high total sixty nine sixty nine and a half that we should see plenty of points in this game Los and it's no small factor Florida Atlantic laying on its home field few years ago they put on their home field and try to remember what it was they beat the thing was one of that I think would actually be something like fifty nine to three or something they were favored by like twenty four points in a game of playing on their home field the figure to have the majority of the crowd support and I think they've got a little chip on their shoulder to prove to their old call take you bailed on us we're still a pretty good football team there you go fifty to three good score could call a good memory Washington at Boise state right here in our backyard last Las Vegas bowl at Sam Boyd stadium Washington minus three and a half forty nine and a half I saw a couple three years for a little bit what I tell you Boise state though there so consistent it's hard to bet against this their bowl game yeah it has been for over a decade and they have to win the mountain west to get here so it's the first place team from you know mountain west so they're gonna be motivated and they'll go up against Chris Peterson Peterson of course has left for for Washington but that'll be it a fun little dynamic the game within the game Peterson's last game their eyes defense coordinator late takes over Jimmy like I like this match appears to be a fun game couple of the Huskies will be sitting out including their star tight and hunter Brian well one of their starting offense of one min Adams is out as well both those guys looking to go play at the next level your take on this when you take the point to Boise yeah I didn't appoint played a little on the moneyline played the game to stay under the the total which is right now forty nine and a half it's been pretty steady you know Washington about the only thing they have going for them that I can see you know maybe you could argue that they have their.

"Back it is the biggest change also glad you could join us on a Monday. it was a fun weekend of football to watch certainly not that fun for you in LV you know we we we cover you one of the we talk about you and all the the you in all the basketball season right around the corner TJ also burger in year one and should be interesting we hope he does a good job I like what he's done so far and will continue to talk you into the hoops as the season approaches but you know we have Tony Sanchez on the show all the time I think I I think he's a great guy he's an easy guy to root for he's a good dude and and you know like I said I mean I reform and trust me if there hasn't been every coach you want only I have not rooted for okay let's put it that way but Sanchez is an easy guy to root for they just got destroyed over the weekend and embarrassed against Wyoming this war fifty three seventeen and it's just it's just to the bottle I'm not sure he last the rest of the year I tend to think that France was gonna wait till the end of the year and then and then get rid of them and fire him but let's get this guy on the line right now what I think has a thing or two to say about you one of the football his name is Bernie Fratto as a nationally syndicated radio host for Fox Sports radio and he does a show right Avalos Vegas and he's covered you in early for number years and he joins us right now Bernie thank you so much for joining us how are you Hey Brian thanks for having me and you know coincidentally a week ago was the twenty fifth anniversary of the Shawshank redemption and as a pertains to you and I'll be football I think and you did do frame would say they better get busy living or get I like that by the way I do all the Shawshank poster in my living room one of my favorite movies of all time all right so Bernie let's start from square one here I was not a big fan of the hiring from the beginning and I've been on the radio saying that for a number years why because you don't hire a guy that's never coached one day at the college level who coached at the high school level with the best how some of the best high school players in the country he wins and then everybody thinks he's the next messiah he's gonna turn this you will be thing around it is back fired on them it's the same reason why didn't like the Dave rice. higher in basketball he had never been a head coach before even even though he was an assistant at the college level but that this guy Tony Sanchez Y. like we both like we all agree is a good guy he never coached at the college level and this is the guy that everyone thought was gonna recruit and turn this thing around it just backfired on him as a not. well you're not wrong Brian and there's historical you know preference here jury files they tried this and Notre Dame back in eighty two when he was a legend of Notre at Moeller high school in Cincinnati and that that didn't work it was tried in Texas about fifteen years ago with a guy named Todd Dodge was a legendary high school football coaching you feel pretty badly at North Texas state and I think when you Juxtapoz Brian Tony Sanchez hiring a look back at the last three years let's take Wyoming they are in the doldrums they begin Craig Bohl by year three he goes eight and six they go to the poinsettia bowl and play be why you had up look up north it Reno you're hired Jane Orville you're too he went eight games goes to a bowl game beat Arkansas state Hawaii Nikolaevich they bring him in year two eight wins goes to a bowl game so when you juxtapose that there are other coaches being hired in the same conference they're having measurable success fairly quickly and then when you look at your five and the the program unfortunately seems to be regressing on the field pretty badly you're not wrong in your assessment in retrospect that perhaps this isn't gonna work out I believe that I'm not even sure he would have gotten the job but I think he certainly would've been gone after last year if not for the for T. this where the fatigue as well they're billionaires they don't eat a lot of money to you in LV and you could make the argument though certainly it helps you and I'll be in it helps the program with the facilities and all the money that was raised there's no question about that however we're at a point now in athletics where all you need is somebody like the for teachers to donate a bunch of money and then they control the fire culture not now I think he's gonna be gone after this year and will we'll get into that but you can make the argument it doesn't matter how much money you give the university it doesn't do you any good at least short term if you don't have the right coaching staff in place does it not. I can't take exception with the need you said there are let me and package for just a second again let's go back to thirty thousand feet descend down be you know the the situation where you might find a rich benefactor that wants to help the university is not new I mean look with T. Boone Pickens did for Oklahoma right yeah liquid filled night did for Oregon and even Steven Ross who owns the Miami Dolphins a Michigan graduate he's been a benefactor to the tune of a hundred million dollars to the university of Michigan but to your point if that money does not produce a winning product on the field and what we accomplish I want to take this a step further Brian could we know each other well you know my background I've covered big ten football shirt working years right there and ability to be more I want to bring that up you know first so everybody think I'm cool but. here's the real reason Brian can hear thinker and I want you to think about what I wanna say here be just a little attitude. it's been proven now that if enough people care anything can happen look at the golden knights uses are competing absolutely the right and even the lights to degree so how how can we as a city in Las Vegas get enough people the care with the resources we have here to make the rebels the crown jewel of their conference and we'll just go from there here's one I say this is so important because this is what I learned about covering big ten football. your football program abroad analogy is a lot like the front yard of a beautiful home let's see here are concerning and you pull up to a house in you're interested the first thing you're going to notice that the front yard now it's not the most important part of the house but it's an indicator for the rest of the house of the front yard looks good you might want to go in and see the rest of the house you might be very interested if for its first if the university has a good football program what that can do for the university is remarkable far beyond just elevating their stature elevating the profile and engendering investment and attention and revenue that woman who might pay for their chemistry department the chemistry department might find a cure for cancer you don't know all right so a football program is important no one should group this and it's right there in front of us the golden knights of just proved in three years they created something from nothing that though it they become an international team something along those lines happen at U. N. L. V. well again what are they gonna Boise state what are they they're always in this conference not long it'll look what they're doing is right you get it right yeah absolutely about if you're joining us is Bernie Fratto doesn't nationally syndicated host Fox Sports straight out of Vegas great show a lot of great gambling tips in there too all right so Bernie you just ask the question you posed it to me you know how to get people to care well first of all talk about the nights for second this October one shooting and and the second anniversary comes up tomorrow the way the Vegas knights Vegas golden knights embrace the city and people latched on to them in the way they help people during that tough time I think that just people just bought into it immediately whether they were and keep in mind that was the first week of the season and people bought into it yet did it help that they win absolutely so I think number one you have to be a part of the community and I'm not sure you know the basketball and football have done a great job of that over the course of the last decade at least so that's number one number two you have to win this football pro. Graham has been awful for decades and I know Randall Cunningham we're gonna try to come on the show I know he would agree with me on that they have been terrible okay so that's to me that's number two number three Sam Boyd stadium hasn't helped okay it's way off the strip there's a lot of people in some of the don't want to make the drive and the fact that they are moving to this new arena stadium where the raiders are gonna be playing if there's only eight thousand people showing up that is going to be a complete and total and utter embarrassment so I think those are the three key issues that I bring up you got to be a you got Marvin Menzies did a horrible not to go back to bass Menzies did a horrible job getting into the community you got this guy to jobs were go I think it's been a very nice job thus far in getting out in the community I think he's done well and you know I know Tony Sanchez has a lot of friends here but I don't see the football program doing the things that are necessary to get people to buy an out so that's my assessment you asked how do you get people to care you got a win you gotta be a bigger part of the community and I and and I'm not sure they've done that. probably not and it all emanates from what's taking place in the field on the block and tackle now I do agree with you Tony Sanchez is a good guy I'm glad to get the job I was for it I'm you know I'm glad they didn't fire him last year Desiree read wanted to let's make no bones about that it's funny because the local reporter after the other night she gonna fire now I don't think you have the autonomy to farm frankly I think she's strutting like a peacock because you look around saying see I told you we should've are this guy last year I had my most told me they had you more waiting in the wings so I think Tony will last season maybe if they get their seventh loss they may talk about it I don't know within the start the new coaching search let's take it one of the time they're twenty one point home dog against Boise state what's happening on the field is the most bothersome thing to me in a trance everything else Brian because only co Sancious is this with the best team I was on your show he said if you want a one time yeah this is your house asking yep you got you got got your you got recruit you got there he's got this and there are conference farther away somebody better sit up and take notice their number three to ten conferences in terms of their performance against other conferences the next seven opponents but the rebels will play including the one they just played but that would be eight opponents all have victories over power five teams with the exception of friends know who lost to nail biters it's a good store in Oregon state it could write one bowl the conference has done well yeah no you're absolutely right. in Arkansas I'd be too good to an Arkansas team I watch that game they beat them so it can be done it should be being done the second party equation is not only of the rebel not winning on the field they're not even competing right zero sixty points there is another running back went down the one yard line in Wyoming took three knees it's a good thing it was a woody Hayes. you are so right yeah you're right RG what else brand I'm gonna watch when the rebels was slamming basketball I bet they don't give the identical Wyoming to other sixteen basketball. completing their not winning and the third thing that I find bothersome is it doesn't appear to be any sense of urgency or adjustments and just a lot of platitudes well there is some soul searching you got to be better we got to do better well you know we did pretty good against northwestern no you didn't you're running back is terrific by the way great kid trick running back it took you know he he got to the edge twice and twice the northwestern defensive in Los contain after half time you know they make that adjustment he set the edge you force running back back in the middle of three with the football players are you take with us too long runs and that that school might have been worse than it was and I think northwestern was was looking ahead to Wisconsin anyway so they're not competing or not winning but we were told we had the best team yeah this is for you in this phone call yeah no you're right that that's extremely troublesome if you're just joining us Bernie fraud on the line does show straight into Vegas nationally syndicated sports host for Fox Sports Bernie I have to give you credit because it started the season before it started before they played southern Utah I asked you how many wins you think this team is gonna have you save you said for I said six I'm thinking that even you might have been a little bit too generous I'm not sure they get to four wins now Bernie. no I was wrong I should check the schedule I thought they win for but I thought they played southern Utah three times..

"Stop you know my family's in town I'm taking my my dad to the you in all the football game on Saturday always fun to watch college football I've always gone to you and all the football games no matter what team they have what record they have like it's still college football those games are fun to watch and it by the way it's the last year in Sam Boyd stadium so the guy we have with us online right now friend of the shell personal friend he's a great guy does a fantastic show it's called straight outta biggest with Bernie Fratto weekends on Fox Sports and he knows his stuff man that's why we love having on the show Mister Bernie Frodo and self Bernie thanks for coming on my man how are you Hey thanks for having me Brian we may not have football weather here in Vegas so we've got football and I know you and I are both happy about absolutely I know I myself JD we want to talk to you a little college football on the national spectrum but before we do that let's let's start local Bernie because you've lived in Vegas how long now ten years in February yeah you know you want all the football inside and out so we had Tony Sanchez on the show and I asked him point blank listen coach if you don't make a bowl game this year do you think it's fair that your job could be on the line and and and I'm paraphrasing here but basically he said yes he said that should be were you at all the football should be at every year so let me ask you that same question if Tony Sanchez in the U. in all the football program or not bowl eligible this year do you think he needs to go yes he's been given is five years and I'm glad they gave him the full five years and in in this man's college football six wins gets you into the pool and we've observed other programs around the country that have been turned around relatively quickly so look I was very much for the Tony Sanchez hire a respected he did Gorman but after five full years if the rebels can advance to a bowl game when you observe other teams in this conference in that same tenure have improved and got the ball games and it's probably time to go on plus a brand you pretty steady get you know the dynamic he was not hired by Disraeli's France while so she he is not her guy if you will so that doesn't work in his favor either so so let's talk and I by the way I agree with you so lets you know we talk about the for tia connection let's just call it for what it is some people feel like and I'm one of them that if the for teachers were not a part of the program and they have a lot of money they've donated a lot of money to the one of the football program that he might not even been back this year would you agree with that based on what I've heard what's been bandied about around town that appears to be an accurate statement to me yeah and so I think part of the issue was you give him a full ten year if he turns around heading into the new stadium and got momentum or at the same time if they fail to eat you know manage to reach expectations this year which is a bowl game and you cut it off before you head to the new stadium what you just stated I've heard more than once around town and let me be very clear I like Tony Sanchez I have not always said that about coaches in this town I'd like Tony Sanchez honest to god I think he's a good guy he's very very gracious with this time with us I think he's an easy guy to root for I guess that's what I'm trying to say right I want nothing more than to him to have a great year and by the way I felt like last year when Armani Rogers went down you in all these quarterback I feel like if Rogers was healthy I actually do feel like they probably would have made a ball game not a guarantee but I think they probably would have a better year definitely within about a year and I think they would have made a ball game but isn't it scary now Bernie that if Rogers does get hurt and we hope that doesn't happen but if our money does get hurt that could be the end of Tony Sanchez and you're relying so much on your quarterback but I think of our money gets hurt I think they're done well it would certainly be problematic if you're QB one goes down with his physical gifts but I I would say this brand the world's a vexing enough place without hypothetical sorrel hoping he doesn't but to your point because you're such emphasis in your voice you know the style he plays one of the things about Armani Rogers that we've learned over the years is default mechanism is to take off run right I don't particularly know that he makes his re progressions well bottom line is this injuries are part of it and Tony's gonna have to get to a bowl game with or without him and I think the more daunting aspect to this upcoming season even the rebels who have nine started back on offense is their schedule and if you look at after the first two games they've got a they've got to play the next four are the next five on the road at northwestern at Wyoming at Vanderbilt at Fresno state that's funny you duty and sandwiched in between those games it's a home date with Boise state that's going to be the garlic they're gonna have to navigate so I asked Tony I said Hey it's you've got a lot of water she was coming back with experience is the offense no despite the fact of my Rogers has not been a throwing quarterback by any stretch of imagination but despite the fact that the offenses has been a running offense will the office change this year and have the weapons back the do it he said that it will what your thoughts on that well I think you give with the defense takes you based on the scheme and the bottom line is I I don't necessarily agree I think you're going to be a run first offense the one thing the rebel did well last year was run the ball well and are better than average of from for offensive lineman back but my concern is the other side of the ball or the only return for people on defense I understand too defensive backs were eligible because of our academics and one of the things is baffling to be twenty done a pretty good job of recruiting junior college players which is not uncommon in today's game but I'm understanding when camp broke many the guys recruiter even starting so I think they have to get on the field and there are French will be dictated by how well their deep and keep them in the positions to run the offense they like to run so we look at week one Saturday seven PM I believe this this is the start time southern Utah in town not exactly a D. one power house is southern Utah although you know Todd Simon who coaches the basketball what is that spread you know I don't know I I believe around twenty seven last I saw of twenty seven hello I need not was on the board but anyway going back to southern Utah you know we just had a Todd Simon friend to the show a friend of mine he's doing a great job with the basketball program but it's totally different stereo with the football program I think the only one a couple games last year and they brought in Fisher son to help on the defensive side of things I was reading a little bit about the program they claim that they're ready and and they're locked and loaded in the year before they had a really good year but last year was atrocious should this be any challenge it all for you in LV and again we remember what happened a couple years ago when they lost to Howard Dean yeah when the his self and can we remember a few years ago when it was the spread was one fifty so I mean you never know what could happen here what do you know about the southern Utah team should you wanna be be concerned about anything yes first I apologize they lost our in twenty seventeen bright moon brother it was two thousand thirteen a body house fourth year win yeah hi southern Utah strolled into town Intel's rolled and you're right trying to beat their part of the line of scrimmage that was a pretty good team put a couple of guys in the NFL including miles Kilburn others from Las Vegas is planted the tree line what's your question yeah this is an interesting game you're right southern Utah was one in ten last year but in talking to the media people we find out that they had twelve key injuries which was devastating and bye week eight they were down to a four string freshman quarterback who could run an IPO the last she you got a really throw out they got older players back in from this southern Utah standpoint they look at this game as their Super Bowl there are fired up you're so fired up the are the normal I mean it's pretty hot and you talk to and weather out in cedar city gets to be about ninety degrees but on Saint George close to a hundred they've been practicing the last few days galaxy George as a matter of fact I understand in a practice last Saturday night from five to eight to simulate game time he three hours wow so they're further locked and loaded they got a transfer in from Fresno state a transfer from Utah state they're going to take this game seriously war I think you wanna be clearly has the advantage is up front offense of line they should be able to run the ball against or did you taught at will everybody did last year if the rebels can't run the ball early up front we may be in you know in for an interesting contest Saturday night so reading between the lines you would take the points if you were southern Utah it's a complete stay away from me yeah reports of her question it's a great question but there are too many unknowns in its games and I would tell anybody and you know maybe we'll get to this money management is the reason most gamblers go down you really got to protect your bankroll and I look for value on the board of water so many better games it so it's just a way for me what tonight Sir is that the question if you had a gun and I said you had said you had to take one side to the other yes I would take the four touchdowns in college football clearly comes down the motivation who has it and I can tell you southern Utah can be very motivating I actually think they're gonna be better than people think and for the record right now the game is not up it's not on the board in any Las Vegas casinos it will be probably in a day or two but the consensus that came out was twenty four I know you said twenty seven so who knows I think by the game time it probably will be twenty seven but they put usually these types of weird games Bernie as you now and this is what you guys do for a living but Bernie as you know they they usually don't put these weird games up until either late Friday night or very early Saturday morning right guys that's exactly right is the bottom line is F. B. it wanted to SCS team plays an FBS team of a sports book will typically poster number the day of the game or maybe the night before but certainly the day and I believe from memory look a couple weeks ago probably one of the offshore books are so as the spend all foreign I do remember seeing twenty seven that leads me to believe early action is probably come in on southern Utah so if you got a chance washing practices at all no I haven't okay listen I haven't either but who do you think who who have you heard from from friends are insiders the program that is going to be kind of the breakout player to watch this year for you an AVI I I you know forgive me I'm really not qualified to answer that question it again until eight I I'm sorry I'm not prepared to answer that question I think I think Brian you brought up the point earlier the bottom line is our money right they're going to go as far as a minor Rogers takes and stay healthy last year they may very well of one six seven games of the one of the leaders for an innate show with him on the field is a reasonable they did but I want you more it begins and ends with him I know they have to be able to bring him back and in I. a Indian so you know we three are we four have a much better gauge forties I agree on a percent and I think that the backup quarterback last year he was pretty questionable well all the backup quarterbacks in the last twenty years you know what's interesting guys we have a a kid in the back of big name is all black he from town here you to caress a drop back passer any sport up fantastic monomers in high school the offense isn't really designed for a pro se offense like he runs but if he gets on the field he re he throws a very nice and I have here's here's the bottom line I'll say it as at this way and I.

"It's about four and a half five hours from Phoenix Los Angeles no problem bay area no problem yet a little bit of travel from corvallis Eugene Seattle Seattle and pullman but it's a good location. It's good destination in December Dick. They've already played the mountain West Championship. They're all the basketball tournament all the West Coast conferences and basketball basketball including the West Coast conference itself you know they they like Las Vegas Nevada. You'RE GONNA have this St Yeah this Raiders Stadium. which is you know? They got to play at Sam Boyd Stadium for a couple of years <hes>. I don't think that you know I think that it's better than playing in front of an empty stadium. In Santa Clara. They played at Sun Devil Stadium. They've played it in Palo Alto. They played it in Eugene Oregon and had the crowds are cool but you know the the destination especially Destination Vegas in December even Phoenix you WanNa get out of Phoenix when it when it rolls around to the wintertime so I think that's a solid decision well. The other thing is PAC twelve talked about was going to some earlier kick offs biggest arguing okay Fred Wallet. Do you know you can hear our radio on this ferry very network spoke up and down until he was blue in the face about how Christian McCaffrey got shafted on the heisman trophy a few years ago because none of the East Coast voters watched his games. I think that it's a fair assertion. Russian and I think that is up to the pact is not up to the to the writers to stay up later though it should be you see that's not going to happen. So what do you do instead I if Mount Momma won't go to the mountain or the mountain will go to come to Mohammed Mohammed most go to the mountain. I saw that out an episode of CSI not really all proverbial like that but you know that's what the pack twelve is trying to do. They're like okay. You know what I don't WanNa. Watch ten o'clock kickoffs will give you a noon kick offs. Are you gonNA watch US instead of watching Wake Forest Boston College or Michigan State Play Iowa. That'd be at ten o'clock. I don't know that would be a noon in kickoff. Big Ten tries to put the big ones at three thirty and then you know if they're Lord and Master E._S._p._N.. Says it's okay to play night game. Play night game out of the big ten network weeknight games get played on the big ten network but it's games ended up on the big ten hour because they're part of the of the national partners. Don't WanNa Take Gus. Johnson doesn't want it for Fox. I mean they'll take the buckeyes. They'll take Michigan. They'll take cut state probably any week that the big ten is is to give them up Fox. Take up as far as getting in with A._B._C. before to see the games that they put up A. I guess Georgia hosting Notre Dame happens between the hedges. That's going to be a night game.

"And tonight, we're out there every way to work for you with a man that well, you know, you're watching him all the time if you watch sporting events, especially football golf baseball where that great great name of natural turf is used John Marmon joins us west coast turf. Vice president of sales and marketing, John I wanna welcome you. And I want to thank you again here on the the beautiful tour. You gave us of your beautiful forums out there in the Indian Wells ratchet Mirage, then everywhere. Hey, coach. I appreciate it. Thank you for having me on and had a great time meeting. You just recently out of the forum. And you're welcome back anytime, John, let's talk a little about how did you get in its first of all your graduate of UC riverside in nineteen ninety five in environmental sciences. And and you and the actually started working with west coast turf in Las Vegas. I did I I very briefly worked in southern California and quickly found myself moving out to Vegas, which I had never imagined doing. But you know, got to know the area very well. And and it was really a boom time there with a lot of golf courses going in what you're doing about seventy year. And and we actually change the. Artificial turf over to Nashville for Sam Boyd stadium during that time with coach Robinson. And it was it was an interesting time. But I I really just kind of fell into my my older sister was already working for west coast her. She knew the owner of west coaster. John Foster through the Bob Hope Classic golf tournaments our bosses very much involved in that tournament's and from there. I had a temporary job out of college. And it just turned into a lifelong deal. I've I've never had a job interview. Well, I know you love what you do. I love coming out there. We were out there with the legacy foundation for the tournament of roses were you yearly do I don't know how many fields at the Rose Bowl poppy three or four fields every year there along with all the other field. And of course, this being Trojan football reports show you're getting ready to put a new field in the Coliseum. We are will be there. A later this summer looks like July. But so the call the CMO sure be beautiful when that projects all complete and I've I've been in and out of there a little bit. And it sure is coming along nicely. And and just seeing the final. You know, look of what it'll look and feel like it. It sure is going to be another impressive southern California stadium. John. Let's talk about the the turf in the Coliseum. First of all he'd have about fifty different varieties of turf that you utilize your different stadiums. That you do you're just about in all of them. We can talk about even the Las Vegas when they knew Oakland raider stadium, which are going to be doing too. But how do you decide like for the Coliseum where the Trojans will be playing their games in the Rams for one more year? How do you go about deciding what type of turf it's going to be that's for the Coliseum and Wendy you start preparing for that. Well, typically when we're doing these types of fields you're going in with a thicker cut surface because they do often go with one two or three fields during the year. And with the way the Coliseum is complete construction and get off the field and were immediately out there and a couple of weeks later, they're playing on. So it's kind of a tight schedule when you're doing thicker cut material you've got to grow at longer. So that's going to be in the field about a year. And it's not necessarily our decision has a lot to do with the grounds keepers that are working on the individual sites, and they kind of get a feel for what they would like. But in a lot of cases, and certainly, you know throughout the southwestern United States Bandera Bermuda thin kind of the go-to because it's just a very aggressive grower. And when you have a lot of traffic such as what we have going on right now with the shared facility with both NFL and collegiate in the same location. There's a lot of wear and tear. So you need something that's gonna have pretty good repairability, and it's gonna bounce back and be fairly resilient to begin with. But really bouncing back and growing back. Once you do where field out, it's very important. And once again, we use that product the Rosebowl as well. And and most other stadiums a lot of baseball Major League Soccer MLS field just throughout professional sports, and collegiate sports, it's kind of the go-to, and we've been very successful with it. But there are many many varieties that have been used over the years for these fields. And we occasionally we'll get to another Brighty. But there there are some items that may have more of a shade issue. And they want something that's gonna handle shade, very, well, or or they've got maybe a water issue, or or, you know, tough growing conditions, and there are so many different varieties that do you have a little intricate areas. Where are you know, they often excel? And so. It's unique to get individuals into a certain graphs, but but this graph is pretty well suited. And so many other situations and we've been very successful with it. John joins us from west coast turf for talking football. Of course, I Joe did football report brought to us by the south point casino in Las Vegas about. I'm Harvey Chuck as Chuck why don't you ask John question to do because you're at the Coliseum every Sunday for the ram games. John great to speak with you tonight. I guess one of the questions I would have because of technology and all the tension on forty ins shoes, and do the shoe companies come out to your facility out in the desert to test the different lengths of cleats that. They use on your beautiful turfs. That's an interesting question. Chuck, and I really wish they did, you know, in a lot of cases with these fields their recommendations made before the game and often any manager will come out guys will come out and do some drills kind of feel out of field. It's often very difficult to get players to move to to a typically they want to use a clean. That's that's that's molded and manufactured at molded, which is a. A more shallow clear leaders lighter and faster for a player, and when a recommendation is made to go to a deeper clean, and and a heavier clean oftentimes players won't take that advice. And and so it's kind of it's one of the things if you have a field that's a little tighter. And it's it's it's playing a little tighter up top where you have a game in the evening where you have to do coming out of the plant. So that surfaces moist then you're going to need a deeper clean, in some cases. It's a three quarter inch or three quarter inch clear. I mean, they they go extremely deep on these cleats. So when you have the field that flick, maybe you have you know, ryegrass overseas or a bluegrass overseas or you do have an evening game. Where you how do coming up out of the plant making that surface wet, you're going to need to change out your equipment? And oftentimes before that game starts the equipment manager. We'll have a discussion with the groundskeeper. And that decision is is. Often, you know put out there, and whether or not the players want to heed that advice, it's not always done. And sometimes after you know, a flip. They choose to go to a deeper Clete that may slow them down a little bit. But it's all up to the players themselves. You're listening to the Trojan football report with Harvey item. Chuck as brought this all by the south point hotel casino in Las Vegas about. John marmot is our guests from west coast turf. Vice president of sales and marketing, I'll tell you. It's very interesting to find out just how all of this happens and actually football season ever goes away. He doesn't have a season either. But these either though in baseball, stadiums golf courses football stadiums. Or does also commercial properties or whatever you need in turf. Most of it's coming out of west coast turf here. Hey, John, let's start when I came out there the other day and looked at your field. You have thousands of acres. It's unbelievable how many farms, and how many acres are you actually farming. Well, you know, we're we're growing at a couple of farms in northern Cal. We have four or five farms in Southern Cal. We've got a couple in Arizona. We're in Scottsdale and toss around and then we've got a farm in La Paz, Mexico with an interesting variety called Seaford pass panel, and platinum T E is the product and product that works very well with with water that's got high sodium. And so in some cases, you're dealing with a slightly brackish water. And and if you want to conserve water conserved pot of water for a growing area, oftentimes golf courses house to look for some other reserves there. And and so we're doing that product down there were there were there a little bit tight on water and water is pretty expensive. And so we we grow quite a number of acres throughout many many areas. And and and with that we get into a lot more cool season grasses up in northern California. And. Back in the day. We used to ship Super Bowl THAAD over to to Miami or to Jacksonville for for Super Bowls, and that's not taking place so much anymore because of the carbon footprints that that you're you're actually, you know. Directly correlating to that. And there are some, you know, better growers there on the east coast now than there once were that can put out a better product. But for a long long time, we're really kind of the go for the NFL and in regards the Super Bowl, we've done eight. And I think the next guy down is done. No more than four. So we've done a lot of them. And and we've got us a very special relationship with a man by the name of George Toma who has been around for a very long time. Georgia's turn ninety he's a great friend of ours. And we've worked together very well with him over the years, but we we were doing some expansion here and there, but for the most part where we're staying in the south west, and we've got some new products now that we're working with as well, we've got a product that we grew for the Super Bowl at Levi stadium where we're growing on top of plastics. So that's a new unique kind of technique. That's. Proprietary to us. Exactly the way that we do it very secretive, and it's it's extremely resilient. So you play three games on on a thought on plastic field than it equals..

Katie's coming probably. I feel I have some Davis chess pieces to maybe trade if I don't get Zion. I've the hope of Zion a new nose like the bidding for Davis now can be might actually be way worse than we thought. It was going to be because you get the Brandon Ingram thing. I don't know if the Celtics are still going to want if kyri bolts can they really do that for Anthony Davis, all of a sudden, the Knicks could be a real player here for Davis in a trade because the Lakers, and Celtics packages aren't the same. Now. The Celtics are like and twist are we'll we'll throw Tatum in there. Don't watch any of his February March just don't here's here's a DVD from the first half its season. Here's a DVD from him going head-to-head against LeBron. Route three we look how great is we have a Connery really struggling eight part Tatum against the Charlotte Hornets series, eight hours, we got screen lit. So I'd rather be the Knicks. I'm not I don't think you should answer it with that swiftness. I'm sorry. That's that's how I roll you might not be wrong..

"And set lines for these games. He's really delve into this league in in an incredible way. And the league is relying on him. As are the sports books for his research to set a lot of numbers, and he steals now is the time to bet the over on some of these totals because some of the games have been going so low three out of the forest three out of four in the first week went under the total. But he feels it's not long that these totals are going to be set more in the fifties. Whereas now, they're in the forties when they began to league, I agree with Kenny. And when they began the league. It was much. The case of much like hitting being way ahead or pitching being way ahead of hitting in major league baseball in the first week of the season here the same thing when the league formulated the defenses were wait ahead of the offense is that they hadn't been together as a group collectively they only played one exhibition or practice game coming into the regular season here. So it was a major edge to the defense is now they're beginning to know each other the game on each other. And I think I agree with you. I think there's going to be coaches making moves and adjustments and we'll see higher scoring moving forward in these games. One of the interesting things about the af is this week every game will once again be a division game the first opening week week number one. They were all division games last week. They were all non division games. And they're gonna alternate. Going back and forth between division nine division for the first seven weeks in the season here. So you can draw parallels and patterns from that, but the first week as you mentioned, it was all home teams. All favorites. Cashed in those division match ups. But I think it could be a little bit different this week. There you go. The alliance of American football just underway and a fourteen playoff to be capped with the league's championship game right here in Las Vegas. Sam Boyd stadium. That'll be on April the twenty seven th you know, what's really interesting.

"So I know we have raider fans listening and. Look, mike. Coral is not with you as the chief's fan. So I take no pleasure in the nomadic nature of your football team right now. But there is news that has come out today saying that the San Francisco forty Niners who don't play in San Francisco. But they play in their play clothes. Yeah. It's close now. It's not technically San Francisco, I they will not waive their territorial rights to allow the raiders to play in the Giants Stadium. Yeah. Which makes next year? Makes no sense. Because I mean. Essentially, the raiders are moving across the bay. Oakland should be there to San Francisco's territory to is. You're saying, yeah. Like they played theoretically already play in the same territory. You know, obey is a little bit bigger than a lake. So if lake that separated them, then okay? But this is a bay this is separated by a bridge. Yeah. Really? It it seems like the forty Niners shouldn't be able to do that. Especially especially when the forty Niners did reportedly say. You could complain Levi stadium right us. Yeah. So they're okay with the raiders being there. But they want the parking and concessions and all that kind of stuff which I don't think is a wrong move for jed York in the forty Niners to do. Right. But it's just like we know why you're doing this. It's not because you think that the raiders will harsher mellow or whatever on that side of the bay. It's that you can put them in a position where they would have to. Agreed to play at your stadium. And and this whole this whole territorial thing pointed out there moving across the bay. This isn't like when the chargers were thinking about a new home. And services don't even bother right? I think I think that happened. Yeah. I guess they see where the forty Niners are coming from. They're trying to be shrewd business people and make the raiders pay them rant and all that kind of stuff. Yeah. But. It just like I genuinely feel bad for Ray. Because it it just so it's become such a pathetic situation. That you can't find anywhere to play. Because you put the proverbial cart before the horse and said, you're. We're outta here. Suck it we're gone. And then the Oakland was like, but we can tell you to go before you could leave. You know what I mean? So yeah, it's not the fans fault. It's not Derek cars fault. It's John gruden's fault. Mark Davis is fault. And but I still feel like just what a garbage situation for the raiders to be in. So now what? So now, if they're not gonna raise their territorial rights. The raiders ain't gonna be playing in the Giants Stadium. So where do they go? I would say they have three options at this point, either San Diego. San Antonio which they've explored or go to Sam Boyd. Since are moving to Vegas anyway, one of move to Sam Boyd for a year. And the reason why they don't wanna go to Sam Boyd is. Because Sam Boyd is not a good enough stadium is that that's why I've heard from like mountain people that hang out in the mountain west that Sam Boyd stadium isn't a good enough stadium for NFL team the plane, but stubhub center is good enough. Stubhub, cigarette works. No actual football. Same telling you what I have heard. I agree with you. And I'm like, there's no place that's worse than playing in a soccer stadium. I know. Yeah. So so then there's two options San Diego or San Antonio. San antonio. Which was that the raiders are the saints that threatened to move to San Antonio. The raiders because saints played in San Antonio during Katrina. Yeah. Right. And then the raiders will I do we might wanna move down. Well, yeah. It was it happened a couple of years ago when they're they're still kind of in discussions with Oakland about a new stadium or upgrade to a stadium or whatever. And Mark Davis just showed up in San Antonio and got a tour of the Alamo dome. Right. I wasn't trying to do anything there. Right. Right. Just what a bizarre situation for the. Oakland, Raiders, you know, they were once a proud franchise. I don't know if too many of you are old enough to remember when the raiders were actually respectable in not trading away, all their players and not having a home. I don't know they balance between Oakland in L A couple times. Do that. Would. You go. They would probably never do this. Because you mentioned all three of those stadiums. Don't have NFL teams in them. But let's just say that. They didn't have any luck until they got to about Colorado. And then the Broncos said, we'll take you in. Would you go? Would you go watch a raiders game? If they're playing the Brian mile high. No you when he goes see raiders versus panther. No, no chance. You couldn't pay me. See that. See I'm a cheese fan. I might become a season ticket holder. Just because it's like this is unique. Now, I did end the tickets are cheaper. I don't know about the their inter conference games. But if they hosted the raider or the the bears I'd go see that right, obviously every for the bears. And it'd be much bears twice in a season. Because the Broncos are hosting them. I don't know if you saw this coming out of the Super Bowl the other day these second lowest. City. I'm trying to word it correctly. But basically like no one in L A watched like LA was the second lowest rated market or something for the Super Bowl. Wow. I have to double check the exact wording, but does that like the whole game combined or is that? Late just like they're just the Super Bowl ratings. Oh. Allow me to it's still good. But let me correct myself. So I have the right L A had a lower TV rating for the Super Bowl than the country as a whole. So they were below average. Okay. They were below the average. Thing. That shouldn't happen. Yeah. Shouldn't but. Just goes to show. But here's my. I bring that up because there were so hell bent on putting teams in L A. And it's like, nobody cares. And. And soon they'll have Anthony Davis in the Lakers. And then the Rams in charges will be even less relevant. Do you feel like the raiders will be a success in Vegas? Do you think they'll be well attended because the Golden Knights fans are outstanding. Yeah. Hockey team has gotten a full-fledged support. Absolutely. Yeah. And it's been great. Yeah. Do you think that that translates to the raiders I think it can I think again? For sure. Well, that's good news for the raiders. Yeah. I just have my doubts. Just because I don't know what the size of the stadium is right. But. About yea big. Why what do you think eating big, seating wise? About fifty thousand give or take fifty thousand something like that. So no seats perfect. They'll sell out.

"All right, Roz matai lit Twitter ablaze. With this one raiders will play in San Francisco for twenty nine thousand nine seasoned team reaches deal with us giants to use. Oracle park announcement expected this week per my at NFL sources, okay. We shall see. I haven't heard anything else along those lines. As of yet. We do know the raiders are that vagabond team that are looking for a place to lay their head and twenty nineteen. And we've heard Reno we've heard potentially in Levi stadium we've heard random places in the bay area. Where else have we heard, Dave? Or else are the raiders supposedly playing it wasn't like, Texas or something? Yeah. San Antonio, San antone. Great. Yeah. We haven't heard Vegas, and I think that would be a huge disservice. You know for the folks building that stadium in Las Vegas to have them coming year early. I mean, they gave got a college stadium down there. Sam Boyd stadium where the teen in the XFL play. Thank you know, Vince gagging himself. But yeah, I don't know that workaday play go. Find a place in new gentlemen, make her feel appreciated. All right. Who play in Nebraska who knows? Seriously, cities kick just kick rocks. That's all I got for the raiders I read seriously. I didn't wanna talk about this team. They're awful and they're leaving. So I don't care just leave. I'm a fan of the team. And it's just all this crap is just like be done with it just be done with it. I mean, go pull the band aid off and leave. You rolling with them to Vegas d. It's gonna be tough you have to. I mean because what are you gonna do? Like, you're not gonna start watching football. Right. No. And I'm gonna always root for the team to win. But I'll probably never call him by that city's name. I never called them by the team while dude you really hit me with the raiders the raiders will win you want the raiders the raiders win. That's all. I want them to do is win baby. That's it. Yeah. You know? And, you know, keep BARRET Robbins Aditya wanna, you know, change up a play or something like that. Keep Sebastian Janikowski off of the Hennessy and coke and keep your players. Keep your all your Pro Bowl players. That'd be good to pass. Rush is hard to find. I mean, Jon Gruden saying that lines. I mean, that's his fantastic. Alright are forty Niners insider, Matt maiocco has been on this story, and he was on kmby our earlier today. And here's mayo co first on what would need to happen for the forty Niners to sign off on this. Go ahead. Everything the gospel. So I think it has to be a lot of money. I don't know how far they can go would be allowed or what kind of compensation would ask for but hold those territorial lights in San Francisco, and they'd have to waive whites. They would have to be a pretty big price involved. And I don't know where the NFL comes down. Then obviously, they'd want to have both sides be happy with this. Maybe the forty Niners get Super Bowl guarantee out of this guy. I don't know if that would be an option. I mean, the forty nine ers have the upper hand because raiders can't play there unless it's forty nine or sign off on it. Yeah. That's the bottom line. They have the leverage in all. Of this. And because it is their territory San Francisco, it's like, you know, in the name, it just would be such a bizarre bizarre situation with the Oakland Raiders playing in San Francisco in the San Francisco forty Niners playing in Santa Clara. It's just very bizarre for me. I can't wrap my head around that. I'm also not the sharpest knife in the drawer, and it's oracle park, which is continues to confuse me just because it's the oracle thing. Like they're playing in Oakland by oracle. So now stay I'm good. I'm confused. So the raiders are gonna play it oracle. They're gonna play indoors. So they're finally going to move to the arena football league league team for the raiders is really catching on and is Derek Carr going to be at fan fest this weekend. That's all I wanna know. I just hope that he's going to be taken few at-bats or something at first base. Gary and Conley going to be running that kids press conference with me this weekend. Probably looking forward to that. Karl Joseph going to be on the autographs stage on the second mezzanine concourse level. Now, it would be good though to bring marshawn Lynch you over. Yeah. That would be back next year. I Don I who knows. Certainly wasn't overused. How about this yesterday? When I saw marshawn when they announced the NFL man of the year marshawn was one of the finals to Walter Payton man of the year, by the way, my homeboy Jarrett Payton was out there RIP. Walter sweetest greatest football player of all time. Don't ask me. And I saw marshawn standing there. I'm like, you know, what marshlands been standing on the five yard line at the Super Bowl waiting for that hand off. He's still waiting for that hand off just chilling. He's been staying there the whole time Ryan that was in Glendale. No. He's just been waiting at the Super Bowl on the five yard line for like five years. Hammy the rock. I'll go get that Lombardi trophy still waiting and Frank gore Chilin waiting for their handoffs so years from now when marshlands gone on his tombstone, they ought to just have like a four three five yard line and areas. Right. Just chilling. Those are the worst calls ever not given the ball to to hall of fame running backs when you're that close to winning. That's it man. All right. Here's Matt maiocco on the the forty Niners desire. For the raiders. It'd be the only team has ever Cisco good. The last thing. I want is for the San Francisco forty Niners to see another team. The Oakland Raiders be the one team playing San Francisco. I just don't see where the forty Niners has any incentive to allow that to happen. Maybe this is a bargaining chip that they can get something out of it. I guess everybody has a price the fares would much rather have the raiders play in Santa Clara for year Levi stadium was built as a two teams stadium rather than the Oakland Raiders playing in San Francisco. Yeah, I think that seems like a more amicable solution to all this then the raiders actually taking up residence in San Francisco, it's for seven games. And and we don't we we can't lose sight of this. We're not talking about they're moving into San Francisco for the next twenty years, like its first seven games one of their games is already in London. And then they're out of here. Okay. So they really just need like an Airbnb for a couple of weeks, and that's all they need. Do you want to? Sublet your space Airbnb style and in lettuce player for a little while there are a couple of good decent college stadiums. Berkeley stanford. They could play. I mean. Yeah. I haven't been down to the farm and awhile Berkeley, they got all those fricking. Those those those seats the bleachers, and they're annoying as hell. The bleachers are annoying yoursel. They're very uncomfortable. I guess they could that might make the most sense to Berkeley, it's pretty damn close to Oakland. How about this? Dave. Here's a novel thought, why don't you just play in Oakland, the frigging Coliseum like, wow. Wow. What a novel by just play where you've been playing. Why is this so hard, but I do want to compliment the Commissioner on his leadership. Yeah. Just stay in Oakland for one more year. And then kick rocks enough to change anything all the season ticket holders that other specific seats for the last year. You don't have to change out all around. Take the Oakland part off there's L and in the end, you can make that AVI. You got LV raiders right on the side of the building. You don't have to change anything. Yeah. Y'all. When I was walking over the bridge from the Bart station into the Coliseum to go over to the warriors game the other night, there's the huge raiders. Logo. On that facade outside and it said commitment to excellence, I'm like, dude. More like commitment to Vegas outta here. Commitment to balancing committed is right. Yeah. No doubt. All right. One more from Matt maiocco on the forty Niners with the perception of the raiders will be at oracle good the giants ballpark. It would be the forty hours pushing back in the forty Niners block that rather easily just by exercising their territorial rights. So who knows how this thing's gonna play out kind of got the sense of the forty Niners weren't real thrilled. There's this perception to done deal. The raiders are going to be playing in downtown San Francisco when the forty nine ers haven't signed off on that come close to signing off that quite yeah. Yeah. That's putting the cart in front of the horsehair forty Niners. Definitely because they have the territorial rights need to sign off on it. And they would need some incentive. What's my motivation here? What's my incentive? All right. My incentive is to come back and wrap it up on here tonight. NPR tonight on sixty eight. Sports leader. Saturday when you walk through the turnstiles into the clubhouse up. The dugout stairs and step onto the grass of oracle park. You'll be taking a step future off giants baseball. Wow. This is the future. Everything looks Switzer. Twenty nineteen giants fan fest presented vice any we want to. Thank.

Weird update now from the Lakers, according to Greg. So it's changed just a little bit. But the Lakers have put out LeBron James participate in today's practice, including the scrimmage portion the team will see how he feels Thursday before making a decision on his availability. Okay. That's way, better than the Brian Chemnitz key away better. So now, he's officially not out. It's we'll see how he feels. I think it's officially out unless they decide otherwise tomorrow.

I'm telling you when the decays guy shows up at my house. He's like how many people live here? Just me this me. Okay. According to Darren reveal the raiders have begun calling season ticket holders telling them that. They don't know where they are going to play next season. But ticket reps will stay in touch. Let's say the raiders cannot play in their current stadium. The Oakland Alameda County stadium, and they have to go somewhere else for the sake of this question any place. They ask will say, yes. Where should they go? They could play at the Niner stadium in Santa Clara or the giant stadium in downtown. San Francisco they can play at Stanford. They can play Cal. They could even go play one year at UNLV, you know, since they're going to be in Vegas next year. They're set to open their new stadium in Vegas in twenty twenty. Now, I'm gonna make this hard. Pretend you work for the NFL. Okay. She NFL you are in charge of finding about everything. Yes. Your change of finding a place for the raiders where should the raiders play? What makes the most sense? The most sense is UNLV. The most sense is the UNLV stadium. Why not go? And start to ingratiate yourself and in and get local fans involved in the place where you're going to be playing in twenty twenty to me that mass auditor down your your grand opening a year from now. No, it's I think it's a little bit. Like what the chargers are trying to do by going to a smaller venue and then winding up in a bigger venue. Ultimately, why not why not roll out the the welcome? Mat nuggets, they'd roll out the welcome mat for them, but why why not start digging in your your foundation as you build a fan base in Las Vegas because I'll tell you a lot of the fan base. You've got local fans, I mean, people are gonna fly in from LA. They're flying from Oakland. But you want local fans engaged in. That's one way to do it. It's not a terrible idea in Greg. Just looked it up. It's Sam Boyd stadium steady at home. It's thirty-seven thousand people which is even more than stubhub holds for the chargers the up Jay Corrales. You're the biggest raider fan left. I bailed on them after they traded. Khalil mack. How would you into that question where if you could decide where would you want him to put them in Vegas? Put him in Vegas now send him now. I mean are on a flight next year and go to banks and see employees. He gets on a flight. He gets on a flight. Now, he goes by gaming gear nap, but but Santa Clara is like in the middle of nowhere. It's a beautiful statements. Right. And it's the Niner stadium. You know, I think you guys are right? I think they should just say let's go early. I know they don't want to know they want to open with a big splash. But this would make the most sense play in a small stadium start to develop your season ticket base. And then and go into the new stadium twenty. Absolutely. Yeah..

But it's Ingram and Lonzo ball that just aren't bringing it in games when they need to bring it backbone sector to the raiders before I finish up. How cool is it? Now in two thousand nineteen to say raiders are moving here next year. That's awesome. How close at that is awesome. What I'm hearing through the grapevine is there is a chance that even though the raiders won't play at Sam Boyd stadium. There could be one of their two preseason games potentially. Add Sam boy that would be phenomenal. Great now, I'd like to see them play in San Diego. And that's because it's a short little jaunt can fly there in an hour. And not a problem. I'll drive down there at driven demand games. A Qualcomm Jack Moore back in the day. I used to live there in San Diego used to work at Jack Murphy after I got out of the navy stay there. And I remember I was working there in in eighty four the year. The Padres went to the World Series against Detroit and loved watching Dan Fouts and that offense Charlie joiner, John Jefferson, who's the other two. Wes chandler. Go Kellen Winslow. And running back. No. With.
