"San Jose State. But now he has this team atop the mountain west and those that back the 65 to 1 or whatever was as far as the future going into the season. They reached the money handsomely, including my buddy Larry reduce. It actually just threw 25 bucks on it, but it turned into about 1300 Forum. Crazy little bit there you take a far as San Jose State in this game is well. And what about the total? Yeah, I'm gonna agree with the Andy I under looks really good for me. I don't think Santa's the state gets credit for their defense. I mean, it only allows 18 points per game on the season. I mean, two touchdowns left of what they did a year ago. So massive improvements on that side of the ball and then I'm also gonna be. I know it seems like a big number here, but The reality of standards, the state and a better conference than what ball state played it standard They state won all seven other games by 10 points or more this year. Obviously, they're $6.1 against the spread. So that mean then they have no problem covering point spread so far this season and you know, you look for context, Clues and bowl season how a specific conference is doing. And Nevada looked pretty good out of Mountain West Hawaii. Look good out of the mountain West to team Sanders, a state beat, So I think you know, mountain less but much better conference in the back and I'll lay the points here with the mountain less chance over the mat. Chance. All right, B p. Let's stay with you. Then on the next game as we move on down Arkansas and TCU, of course canceled, But then we've got Some other games coming up. Hold on in just a second. I scroll the screen down and we get to New Year's Day and Cincinnati. Georgia is the early game there. The Peach Bowl. Great job by Luke Fickell on company and really felt that the layoff in between the championship game against Tulsa really hurts Cincinnati because they really were clicking offensively, much better. Then they were when they went into that game. And, you know, talk, not taking anything away from toasters defense, but just saying that Cincinnati looks so much more crisp throughout the season, and they struggle. They got off to the 10. Nothing lead after the first quarter, but you could see that they were gonna have trouble just trying to hang on and win the game. They got that late field goal to win it. Your take with Georgia, which 80 Daniels at the hell now. There are some 6.5 minus juice but mostly seven across the board 50.5 and we've seen Georgia where they've come up short and then end up getting tattooed like they did last year by Texas in a bowl game. What about this Georgia team because they seem to be a different team, especially offensively with Daniel's taking over s O Georgia minus 7 50 a half course me following the USC transfer wants to take Georgia your take on this one. Yeah, I think I'm gonna be kind of on an island on this one. I get why A lot of sharp people are on Cincinnati. I mean, maybe possible questionable motivation here for Georgia. While obviously you're going to get in a effort out of Cincinnati. I'm just not sure it's enough for Cincinnati unit. They play him and a game there. And I know a lot of people questioned. The Georgia might not want to be there. To me. It's not like a lot of other instances that would seem like a team Loser Conference championship game Had they wanted they would have made that you know the playoffs. Georgia knew they weren't going to blast when they lost the Florida well over a month ago. So to me, the difference is J p d. A. I was a quarterback. That offense is so much better. Or she had a few out dollars. But maybe not. As many as a lot of people, including myself. Thought they would. I think three starters still any top five roster in the country, So I'm I'm okay here with them playing close to home very familiar. As far as this venue. They play in this venue every year. I'm gonna lay the points here with Georgia. All right, Andy Esco you following suit there someone Georgia's well. Hey, I I'm sorry that I think I'm gonna make it three of a kind. I also support Georgia, although when I first looked at the matchup I was thinking, Gee, is there a way that that could find a reason to take Cincinnati and Brad touched upon the reasons how motivated this Georgia and this is a huge game for Cincinnati and opportunity to knock off an elite program? Such a screw to the concern I have is? Will they have some success moving the ball against the Georgia defense? That allowed just 2.5 yards per rush the season. That's one of the best in the nation. And that's playing an SEC schedule, which is very impressive and really, they're only really bad game was really the second half of the game against Alabama, although some would argue the following week when they were 17 point favorites at Kentucky. They struggled in a 14 to 333 win, even though they dominated Set as bread mentioned. They were out of the S E. C championship game in middle of the season on yet their last three games of the season, they beat Mississippi State and then a 29 point win at South Carolina and a 35 point win at Missouri. So they were clearly interested in playing. The one concern I have is some comments made by Kirby Smart about, I think was either over the weekend or right before the weekend. That he thought that there might be some cold. It concerns leading up to game time, which makes me think that and we haven't heard anything yet that maybe there will be some players who were badly in or or will have tested positive or contact tracing and that might come out in the morning. But outside from that, I think George is the right side. I think they're ultimately going to be e think they're gonna break down Cincinnati spirit and be able to extend when Cincinnati realizes They're up against one of the really based upon the talent, one of the top 10 teams in the country and an hour later over Northwestern Get going in the Citrus Bowl, Northwestern, minus 3.5 43 a half and again that defense really You know, bared its teeth early against Ohio State, and they were right there in that game Leading that came for a good portion. Your take on Northwestern Pat Fitzgerald boys, the cat's favorite 3.5 against Auburn of Coming off firing, of course, coach Mills on Total 43 a half this game from Orlando, Florida Citrus Bowl. Yeah, I'm wondering the situation there with the Auburn having the new coach Brian Harsh and who comes over from Boise State. Uh, I'd love this Northwestern team and what Pat Fitzgerald has done. I think it's 15 years or so he took over the program former linebacker there. I think he played in that Rose Bowl in Northwestern went up against USC and gave the Trojans a nice battling. You know, Northwestern used to be the punching bag for basically the entire country throughout the 19 eighties and into the 19 nineties and Now they've had a couple of West championships and he's turn This program around on Dad has done extremely well. The last two ball games have been very, very close. I'm concerned about a little bit about what all this is going to do. You know they've got the assistant coaches arson is going to bring in some of his own focuses. Most coaches do, but he's unfamiliar parity with the SEC could mean that he'll be looking to retain some of Auburn's current staff and specifically. He may be looking to retain defensive coordinator Steele who's going to be the one who is the interim coach is going to, uh, coach this game Northwestern. They play well, look, they let Ohio State keep into the third quarter of the Big 10 championship game. They do rely on defense. The offense is not their strength 3.5. That seems to be a high number of considering. I think, as I mentioned the one point wins, is there one point games in the last two bowl games? I'm going to take the point with Auburn in this one, um, wouldn't be surprised in and what is also a local What? I expect to be a low scoring game if this one does come down to winning by a field goal. Yeah, again. I'm gonna agree with Andy here. I'm gonna lean with Auburn because of the hook. They're getting 3.5. I just I'm never usually in the business and let one of the late points of Northwestern expert especially against More town. The roster that that augur has the reason I'm not liking it. Auburn is because of all you know that the issues with the coaching staff keep in mind there to play callers on offense. Whether it was you know Chad Morris, the OC or Gus Malzahn, who is, you know, perfectly capable, calling plays as a head coach. I mean, they're both gone. They won't be at this game so that to me concerns me about the effect of this that African have offensively. And because of that, and I don't think Northwestern's gonna have Ah, lot of success offensively, I you know, lean over, but I'd probably prefer under 43 a half right now..

What Stops Western States From Intentional Burning As A Way To Prevent Wildfires?
"A historically destructive wildfire season across much of the western US has renewed debate over intentional burns. Those managed wildfires would help clear forests and grasslands of dangerous levels of vegetation built up over decades of fire suppression. But experts say we will need to intentionally burn many more acres to get the West's wildfire problem check NPR's Eric Westervelt reports in Colorado three of the state's five largest wildfires in history have burned this year in California. Five of the biggest on record have occurred just since August fire colleges say that while people right now might not WanNa hear it. The most effective prevention strategy is to use. More, fire to fix the region's wildfire problem people might say that you know they're scared of doing for stripe fire but you know I'm scared what will happen in the next ten years if we don't prescribe fire, let's Kate Wilkin a fire a columnist with the Wildfire Interdisciplinary Research Center at San Jose state she recognizes how awful it's been for many in recent years people who've lost loved ones and homes the fear stress in smoke-filled air drifting hundreds of miles. But in terms of forest health will says California is supposed to burn. So in the state top four, million acres burned earlier this month Wilkin. Thought Wow. We're actually getting into the ballpark how many acres used to bring California just shortly remembers me four, point, four, million and twelve million acres to burn every year contrast. California in the last few years has intentionally burned just over fifty thousand acres on public lands federal and California officials recently signed an agreement to try to boost that significantly to treat about a million acres a year with combined thinning and controlled. Burns but critics say that's nowhere near enough to meet this moment Malcolm North is a research scientist with the US Forest Service. He says a major. To expanding controlled Burns is institutional inertia in these large risk, averse state and federal agencies like the one he works for it's not something in which incremental cautious decisions are going to solve the problem. So you need to have a cultural shift in the public's understanding about the inevitability of fire, but you also need a cultural shift within the agencies to be more supportive of the. USA Fire if historically flawed forest management is half the problem here battling most fire. The other half is the world's warming climate with hotter drier conditions igniting a century of built up fuel says Michael Warren with Stanford Woods Institute for the Environment. The problem has kind of turned from this thing that we can manage to a monster and taming that monster through intentional fire war says. is vital yet costly. It's estimated that thinning and prescribed burns can cost up to two thousand dollars per acre coming up with the money to do this at scale has always been a major obstacle we need to stained federal and state financial support. If we're going to have any hope of moving the needle other barriers to doing more intentional burns, include tough environmental rules and liability. Laws and then their safety. The vast majority of these fires are done without harm to people or property, but they're not risk free. For example, a Park Service controlled burn twenty years ago near Los Alamos New Mexico got out of control when high winds picked up some four hundred homes burned the federal nuclear lab. There was threatened withering criticism and congressional hearings followed the plan was flawed. The higher ups rubber-stamped it. The burn boss was not qualified to do fire this big that Los Alamos fire became the Enron of controlled Burns a rare but spectacularly, botched event whose effect is still felt today across federal agencies despite the long bitter fights in Washington over how to manage the nation's forests they're currently several bills in the US Senate would significantly boost federal funding for intentional fires. One of them even has some bipartisan support. Eric. Westervelt NPR news.

"Welcome back. Dr. Time Sports Air Force Falls to one and one on the season after dropping their conference opener at Son San Jose State. 17 6 Joining me now to discuss that is one half. Of the outstanding airforce broadcast team in the league lead anchor for the Mountain West Network. Jesse Kurds. My guess Jesse, you make it back from California in one piece. Yesterday was a long day, my friend for many, many reasons, but yes, I made it back Flew home drove through the snow had the post game. Lost hangover, but all is well. Good. I'm glad. Glad here. I don't know if I totally believe you, but I'm glad I'm glad, at least hear that You're putting on a brave face. Um, I thought, you know, going into the game. The thing I had talked about all week was you know how air forces defense, especially the secondary that was largely untested against Navy. How would they were going to Fare against the San Jose State team that likes toe air it out. Um I don't know that the defense could have played any better on Saturday, Jesse. No, I I'm right there with you, Ryan. I mean, I went into that game. That was my chief concern was Could a unproven, young, inexperienced secondary run with what I think is maybe the best receiving corps in The mountain West with Bailey Gaither, Tray Walker, Derek, DC means these guys have a lot of games underneath. Um, they have a lot of speed a lot of balls. The question was, What was the quarterback going to look like? Next article for San Jose State was one of the highest recruited high school quarterbacks in the country. It's kind of a journeyman Texas AM Arkansas now San Jose State, and I just said Here's an SEC quarterback. You got experienced very speedy wide receivers. How's this secondary gonna stack up and I walked away even after the losses of man That that wasn't on the defense that that game and the law certainly wasn't on the defense and after the game, Alicia Palm said that he thought he was sold in the locker room that They weren't playing that. Well, they held a team scoreless, but, you know, obviously the coaches saw something Mohr out of them. Very impressed with the way the defense played, And that certainly was not the reason that the team lost. Well, if it wasn't the defence, and I don't know that there are any major special teams breakdowns, they ultimately goes to the offense. I think for a lot of people, what was the biggest problem there with the Air Force offense on Saturday? Just mistakes at the wrong time. Inability to plow through the wall. I mean, you got four shots inside the two yard line. The score touchdown and you get stopped. If you tell me an air force team in any given year. Has four shots to go two yards for a touchdown. I would bet the house on the ability to do that with, you know, typically a very good offensive line. You got all American candidates up front. You've got a full back that runs with a ton of islands and Timothy Jackson on DH To some degree. You got some speed to the Kaidan Rensburg obviously was hurt for most of that game didn't play. But the smart money would be on air Force, and then you know, some costly turnovers. I mean, frankly, you turn the ball over on the first drive. You're driving. As officially as you can, and you get inside, Certainly on the other side of 50, and then you coughed football up. You can't got the football up. You know when you're that close to at least give three. I mean, that could've been 30. But untimely turnovers, the inability to bust through that wall you score on that that opening drive and you score on that closing drive. We may be talking about completely different outcome, but A CZ We talked about in the postgame show. Ryan, This is what you get with a inexperienced team. You're going to ride some highs. You're going to say Whoa. How did they do that? And you're gonna ride some lows of Whoa. How did we do that? And I think that's what you're going to see this entire year. This isn't the first time you're going to see A team surprise you. This seems surprised you will be the team like maybe and dominate. But there are going to be some head scratchers. I'm not sure that I expected that one. Jesse Kurtz. My guests that he had the the way While the Falcons would certainly take this season opening win over Navy, I don't think it did them. Any favors in terms of the expectation level, because all the somewhere like Whatever, sophomoric quarterback, nine new defense of starters, you know, Whatever they ran, They ran through one of their their chief rivals. But and look They had their chances that is a San Jose state team that they Generally. Farewell against, so I'm sure that the coaching staff isn't going to look at it and make any excuses. They feel like they should have won that game. But I think now do we have kind of a I don't know. We have We have a floor and a ceiling for this offense. I suppose after two games, do you think? Yeah, I think that's well put. I think you know the truth always lies in the middle, right? This team was probably probably not 30, plus points better Navy and certainly is not 11 points worse for shy of a San Jose state team. The middle the middle probably is where the truth lies, and I think we'll see that overtime is this team gets a little bit more experience, but I'll tell you If it was a wake up call, or, you know, Hey, maybe we have some things that we had thought about. Or maybe we just need to execute better play better. No time, like the present with the defending mountain was champions coming in, and they look really good. Over the weekend against Utah State, offensively and defensively, So I think you're right. I think the truth lies in the middle. Obviously, the offense has got to do a whole lot better if you would have told me going into that game. The offense was only in the score six points. I would've told you you're crazy, and I probably also would have told you if the defence allows 17 points is probably an airforce wins. So again the truth, probably in the middle. The offense is going to get better. And if the defense continues to play like this, that is going to put them in a position to win more football games. And you mentioned the injury. Caden Ramsburg and then Josh Stoner doesn't make the trip. Right? So Brad Roberts didn't play so I mean, yeah, a lot of guys that We all thought would be contributors worn on the field. Right And then and then with Remsburg and I had talked to Troy Calhoun about this this last week because Navy did a really good job keeping him from busting around the outside, and I would imagine In Remsburg absence the guy ideally that would be able to do that is Josh stoners. So now he's out, so I'm just thinking. The Air Force rushing attack is so dynamic when they're able to blend the inside running game but also be able to break on the outside. And with Remsburg her and no Josh Stoner. It just felt like San Jose State. Could anticipate a little bit more where the ball was going. Yeah, and credit to that spartan defense. I was super surprised with the way that they had speed sideline to sideline and two totally plugged up in between The tackles mean that you look no further than a fullback game from Game one game to Game one. You've got to pull backs it hit 100 yards, and Timothy Jackson and Brad Roberts. You look at the game here. You're you're leading fullback Timothy Jackson goes for 60 yards. Matthew Merlot.
Interview with Jim Seimas Sports Editor of the Santa Cruz Sentinel
"A very special guest the sports editor for the Santa Cruz Sentinel 23 time Associated Press sports editor award-winner Jim seimas, Jim. Welcome to the show off you drop. Thanks for having me. Appreciate it Jim and I have had the awesome opportunity of meeting each other in a couple of different capacities over the last year or so first. I met you as an intern for the pajaronian wage when I was reveley scholar studying under Brad kava at Cabrillo and then later, you know in my role of sports and Information Specialist at Cabrillo and you obviously still with the Sentinel we wanted to be on the show today because Danny and I are both making money in our careers as writers, you know, we do writing here and there and I guess you could say that we had an innate interests in people who not only right but also write for the Sentinel because we've had on Ryan Masters before a former Sentinel writer who body surfed at wage. Rick's back in I think 2006 that Joe is that the year that he at Mavericks something like that. I'd have to double-check his old writings, but it was early mid two thousand. This may be late home or remembering and Ryan was an amazing interview. He was really fun and we kind of learned our lesson that when it comes to having guests on the show, you really want to look for people who are comfortable using their words took a story and who have a lot of experience kind of funneling down their information, but for somebody like me who grew up reading Hunter Thompson and a lot of writers that came originally from a sports writing background. I've always had this this Romanticism if you will of of what a sports writer is and that was kind of pushed ahead by working for Tony Nunez who was at the time the sports editor at the potter onia now, he is the managing editor and you know working with you and meeting Julie and leading one and I guess it's really cool meeting these people who spend dead. The the bulk of their time living in sport and and kind of articulating and taking sport out and a big part of what I've tried to do during my time to Cabrillo is digitized r-sport make them available for streaming online. Mostly for the purpose of trying to let more people get a chance to a common experience that activity as we enter a world following this covid-19 Choice. It's not following yet. But has we live in this kind of post covid-19 world the time before fans will be allowed back to watch sports happen will probably come after Sportz get back underway, which means that people like us are all of a sudden going to be really pushed back to the Forefront and be creating this bridge to connect people with this activity that they truly love and care for or players or teams or whatever. So kind of from that launching point. Where where did you first get started as a writer and what made you decide that that way? Are you were going to you know, keep the bills paid? Was funny cuz I interviewed so many kids that are college committed and asked what they're going to major in and half of them don't know and I'm fine with that. But I and then there's other kids who do they knew in fifth grade that I wanted to be a sportswriter. Excuse me. I have some allergies here. So I, every now and then around fourth fifth grade page and initially wanted to be like the San Francisco Giants announcer and there's only two of them and I know like connection to baseball whatsoever other than being a fan and I kind of even figured out that age like hey there I you know X ball players are getting these jobs. You're not going to get one and then, you know, just taking radio television type stuff and you know if I had a face or voice for neither, so I just kind of jumped into you know, a fifth grade. We did a little writing project. Would that where we had our books published or bound at least and I can't remember it was unbeknownst to me boss. So maybe in a contest and I wasn't a very good writer, but it won an award and I was very happy about that. I still have that book in my basement. I would like to say it was probably like Game of Thrones before Game of Thrones happened, but far simpler only three pages. So, you know, I did my own artwork for it with you know, drawings and swords and blood. Anyway, that was awful. I was hooked. I obviously don't like didn't read recently like a large audience at all, but I have so much fun writing that I really enjoyed creative writing in junior high school besides that my writing was absolutely atrocious growing up all my papers were covered in red ink from the teachers and that kind of was like the kitchen me ask to like. Hey, let's let's try harder at this. Let's try and figure out how to construct a sentence a little bit better and and your thoughts and I'm specimens. I'm still battling today, but I remember I try not to be sports editor wage. Junior High and the junior high paper is pretty much all song dedications and this and that and very little of substance but I got beat out for that position and took still enjoyed writing and then I did I did a couple of years on my high school paper at Westmont high and Campbell. And again, I did poorly in this like a British literature class. So I actually took off journalism twice you're only allowed to take it once but I knew that's what I was going to go into and you know, so and after that I went to West Valley College in Saratoga and I did far too many semesters on their page Church went to San Jose State did far too many semesters on their paper. I wasn't really like set on graduating. I was having so much fun on each step. Excuse me, boss. So on each stamp learning so much, you know when you were

"As others fleet wild fires a team in California races towards them Matt brewer is part of that team it's called the fire weather research lab at San Jose State University he's a firefighter and a scientist impact his team has the only whether researchers in the U. S. certified as firefighters welcome thanks for having me on I understand you have been right next to some of the biggest fires in northern California can you just describe for me what you've seen I've seen some really intense stuff I've seen the flames reaching the tallest trees is seen probably flame links of over a hundred feet easily I have seen fired jump more than a call on the ahead of the fire front and just start new fires and continued on down the slope to spend a lot of wild stuff and my two years here as soon as a state explain how studying the weather helps prepare people for future fires one thing in particular we're looking for is to see burning embers of fire within the smoke plume and seeing how far and how fast they travel as well as collecting samples of them on the ground to get a general size and shape of them and by tracking how far how fast these embers are traveling how does that help inform how future fires will move we can use some of this data to advance current models of fire progression because these embers are very important for predicting the progression of the fire on wind driven fire is especially because these numbers can start spot fires down range of the burning fire front and even start houses on players if they land gutters on roofs Exeter so the more accurately you update these models based on say like the movement of embers in previous fires the more people can prepare in what ways having these updated models and having better prediction of the fire will help managers better coordinate evacuations not having people evacuate they don't need to and beyond to have people evacuate even when the fires couple miles my house well you know we keep hearing that these wildfires they're getting bigger and bigger more frequent that this is just the new normal is that true I mean what do we need to do to turn the corner on this the problem is the issue becomes fire is a natural thing that should occur especially California on a regular basis but as humans start to push into the wildland urban interface you get problems of people not wanting to prescribe burns and you get over growth of vegetation and that is also exacerbated by climate change you get extra drying rains come later in the year so the fuel straight out more we'll have to see in the future climate how weather so it's up to get these wind events like we've been having the last couple weeks I mean obviously this is really dangerous work white keeps pulling you back straight into these crises I mean it's for research but this is really dangerous research it's really exhilarating to be there like when we first went to the Kincaid fire on the first night of ignition being on the ground watching the fire collecting brand new data with our new radar it's just a really exhilarating feeling also the fact that I hope to one day use this data to improve current models and help have a better understanding of fires and fire protection and things along those lines Matt brewer is a member of the fire weather research lab at San Jose State

"Be interesting to see if anything happens next. But yeah, this is this is this is not a good time. Speaking of that we want to change gears for just a second. We, we had a graphic earlier about some schedules in the SEC, and I know you've sat here recently and you. You can never get away from it. But when we showed the graphic, I think we had, we had ala Bama, Arkansas, Tennessee, and there was one other graphic that we showed Kentucky. I it was somewhat even though I knew all this swimming in these shark-infested waters like you do it was still fairly shocking to see how utterly bad, some of these schedules are Tony. Is there here it is? Let me just go over it. Well, you may not be able to see it in the same time, but Arkansas with Portland stay, Colorado, say, by the way, they lost a Colorado state lex year. San Jose State was there any other state. They could have missed on and then western Kentucky Kentucky, which Toledo eastern Michigan. UT Martin Louisville Alabama, Duke, New Mexico state, southern miss western Carolina, Tennessee, Georgia state, BYU Chattanooga, and UAB in fairness, and I do think I do remember this. I think Arkansas had Michigan on the schedule. Do they not? I think that's right. I think it was that changed a while back. But, you know, while there's no way that you can, you know. Gussie up those schedules, and make them look any better than they are. I'm sure the Alabama Duke thing was, you know, that was a chance to, you know, give David cut cliff really give him a game that this going to mean a lot of his folks. But no, the, the, the, the non conference schedules are not very good. And I will tell you this. I've had a lot of discussions, and this is all getting ready to change. By the way, as we move into the new contracts. We've seen all the almond homes that are coming down the road. Eddie understands and I've talked enough athletic directors who heard back from their constituencies that fans are getting tired of paying premium prices for these kind of games. So it doesn't help the schedules you're talking about right now but it is gotta Chang and, and it will eventually but for this year, and I it's important, because the SEC is a real strong position like it was last year. And ultimately the year. Before to get to the play offs. And. Even though Georgia's not really involved in this conversation. It does have a trickle down effect because people people everywhere else, it's like to castigate the SEC, especially when we get to that late weekend in November this year. It's a little bit better with the dogs and AM but it's still a pretty bad weekend. And it plays right into the final weekend, which leads into the, the biggest conversations of the year on the college football playoff well, and the keys to keep the SEC is to get to undefeated teams in that in the SEC championship game and play a great game. And one team loses about Phil let the end. I mean to me that's the scenario and let's be honest. It's alabama. Georgia. That's what everybody's counting on is that those who teams can get to Atlanta undefeated play a great game. And then they both get playoffs. That's that's scenario. The and if but if but if Alabama is the twelve and one you wonder if, if they can get the second. Spot in the playoffs. Like they did a couple years ago with that with that non conference schedule. That's the question we have to ask. And listen, you've been in the national media for a very long time. You've sat there in, in mid town that CBS and, and while while everyone in the SEC things Bama gets all the favorable bounces. The national media.

"From from there. What was interesting with that? I found some some of the most interesting thing is that as a motivator. Oh, he was there. He he did that he also he also new to defer to Tim gerbrich as his assistant coach who was the top assistant coach in college basketball at the time and later became the top NBA assistant coach, and that's not just me saying, this is certainly across the board. But he deferred to Gerg. So many times that it was great. It was a good cop bad cop. Sometimes it was they had a balance there that was masterful in the way that those two operated and motivated these players to the point where they thought when they played San Jose State that they were taking on Duke. And then the national championship was at stake, and that they had to go straighten balls out, and and they'd get up by thirty points. You know, because they're playing San Jose State earlier, but the great motivators and they made every player better. They didn't get great recruits here, by the way, back then, you know, they really did not get great recruits Nobu blue chippers here, but they turned him in the better players once they doubt Eric final question. Did you ever hear any racial epitaphs directed towards Marvin Menzies? Yeah. I didn't hurt anybody again. Yeah. I'm not. I'm not on coaches, social media or e-mailers own y'all. By directly about her that now, see I was just asking him some really good questions. And then we had to go back to Marvin Menzies sorry curveball. Well, look, I mean this sincerely Eric your stand-up guy for coming on. And and answering some some questions that maybe aren't the easiest, and this is tough. But I have no doubt you're going to be working somewhere next year. There's no doubt. I know Marvin man, I know everyone on the staff is going to be getting a gig somewhere. Whether that's for Marvin Menzies or not, I don't know. But you know, you still have your whole life ahead of you your career ahead of you. And you know, like, I said, I think you're a standup guy for doing this. I appreciate it. And we'd love to talk to you again wherever you are working sometime soon, we hope down the road. I appreciate you guys. Haven't been good talking college basketball. Thanks, eric. I appreciate we wish you luck. My man. Thank you. Eric brown. I was gonna ask favorite rock band from the seventies other than Steph one because you start there at the mountaintop, and you go other than zeppelin who's your favorite rock. Gosh. I'm having some some Grateful Dead. Can't actions or something along those lines. I appreciate him doing that interview. Guests that's more than I can say for some of the other people on the staff. Okay. He was willing to do this answer the difficult questions. I'm glad he cleared up. Maybe some of those rumors because I did hear that rumor that Menzies asked for two year extension perhaps. That's not true. I believe Eric. He said, here's what Eric said. Very careful. He said he did not hear that. So he didn't say he didn't say it wasn't true. He said he added. So there's a there is a significant difference. What he's he's a young guy from further coaching business. He's still young. You'll probably be a head coach somewhere along the lines. He'll probably get a good. And we wish him the best. We really do. Eric. Thank you so much for taking some time. We really appreciate it. We'll take some calls on that. That was an interesting interview to five seven five three nine six the number call against seven two to five seven five three nine six is the number to call. We were just speaking with Eric Brown. Former assistant to Marvin Menzies here at UNLV. Let's go to Scott, Scott. Thanks for calling in. How are you? What's up, Scott? Good guys eleven days ago, when the AD fired Menzies do you think about a reporter stood up and said, I'll give you a billion dollars. If you know the head. Coach's name at South Dakota. I hope she explain let me explain real choice. You guys know that let me just explain what Scott is saying to our listeners, the South Dakota coach who looks like we'll most likely be the UNLV coaches TJ. Akhil burger and the answer to that Scott is no they probably not in the reason. Why is I put I put somebody who who's a supporter of TJ, you know, it was on social media. And I guess one of the fans had responded by saying I don't know who that is. And then he responded by saying if you don't know who this is you shouldn't be commenting on this threat. And then I jumped in being you know, the the social harasser that. I am. And I said you look do you think the average UNLV fan that is thinking of buying season tickets? Do you want to knows who this guy is? Of course, not the answer is. No. And I gotta tell you Scott. I think this is a mistake. It's another mistake by UNLV if they hire this guy. What do you think here's the thing that you guys chew on it? And you say if you take this job next year, and you and you play fast, which I think he does and you come in averaging eighty five points a game because it's always been called the running rebels, right, but cruder slow Marvin team played in the fifties. Sometime sixties if you come in burping. Up thirty three game and ninety two point nine eight and you come in third the out west and you go from four thousand eight thousand people to stance your heroes. I agree. I couldn't agree with you more Scott. Yeah. I agree. One hundred ninety two and make it exciting to words, Scott, Mike Miller. Or that? I mean, just I just need to start pushing the ball again about four or five guys like sling. It exciting. Go watch. I agree. I'm not sure TJ's the answer to that. But Scott, I do appreciate the call. Good to hear from you. My man. Thank you, very much are the rabbits here. Jack rabbits, C you guys. Here's what we're gonna do. We're going to take a break.

We'll be back.
What do you do with a dead solar panel?
"Support for climate cast comes from Bank of America as one of the largest global financial institutions Bank of America is in a unique position to help society. Transition to a low-carbon economy Bank of America NA member FDIC. Do we recycle all those solar panels? I'm MPR chief meteorologist, Paul Kutner. This is climate cast. They're popping up all over the place rows of solar panels, lined up in fields catching sunlight, generating power solar panels are a good way to reduce atmosphere greenhouse gas emissions, but they also have electric waste that needs to be recycled. So how will it happen? Dustin Mulvaney as an associate professor of environmental studies at San Jose State university. I talked with him on Skype. Most of solar panel is made of glass, you're gonna have bits silicon a little bit of silver a little bit of lead, some copper some aluminum, but that really makes up less than ten percent or so the solar panel. So when you're dealing with Peavey waste, you really have to be a specialist in understanding how to handle glass and with as many as we've deployed around the United States. For example, a lot of those are still in the field for many years, maybe a decade to come. When is that need that mass need for recycling? Really? Going to celebrate. I'd argue that the need for recycling is already here. We had hurricane hit Puerto Rico in create real tremendous amount of waste in Puerto Rico. We had a tornado takeout somewhere on the order two hundred thousand solar panels in southern California couple of years ago. The big flow of waste is really gonna start coming somewhere on the order fifteen years from now. And where we at now with recycling capability and who's working on the problem. Where should we be in say ten or fifteen years interestingly, they've been working on solar panel recycling technologies really since the nineteen eighties. The national labs have played a really critical leadership role here and several private companies as well, Dustin. We know the huge boom in photovoltaic solar modules is replacing carbon and mercury pollution that was going into the atmosphere and into the lakes, so one way to think about this might be as a trade off. How manageable is the you waste. And solar panels compared to what we've been pumping straight into the atmosphere with power sources like coal. I think it's questionable that there are environmental benefits to solar power, even considering potential end of life waste issues. The issue seems to be very manageable. In fact, it's going to have to be manageable because one of the issues with solar panels is that they rely on some rare in precious metals so in order to really make inroads with solar power. We're going to have to make sure that we recover these way streams in not resort to having to mine. Our landfills in the future to recover these elements, Dustin Mulvaney, associate professor of environmental studies at San Jose State university. Thanks for your insight today. I appreciate talking with you. Thanks so much. My name is Ali tennis. I'm a senior energy planner with the Great Plains institute. I worked with local governments on climate and energy action planning and primarily Minnesota. But also throughout the mid west. I am a cellphone appaluse resident who is an avid biker and has an easy for a backup of call that I've had for months now. So it sits out side we run an extension cord to it that would has worked fine. The thing about the is that the body of the vehicle will not warm up. So you really gotta get out and get up snow off and rice off. I still am not used to the ranging Zaidi. I definitely get that particularly when it's cold, and you kinda really goes miles going down. But otherwise, it's it's worth great returns on colds. Yeah. Reason I was hesitant. And getting e v is that I really kind of visioned myself as being car-free eventually, I think that we also need to think about how we can reduce driving. And I think that maybe an av as a gateway so getting any for environmental reasons, and then starting to bike once a week or take transit once a week or Telecommute and do those kinds of things. And so I think it's certainly part of the picture. But if we're really looking at meaning our goals on climate. We can't just switch one for one and go to electric vehicles. So yes, it is the better option, but it's. The only option. That's climate cast. I'm NPR chief meteorologist, Paul hunter.

"Every single one of my listeners hate you. Before we look at today's match up in air force's ability to get deep in this tournament. How concerning was the loss to Boise state. You know, I really don't think it means anything. The way they lost. It was brutal. You know to have Walker turning the ball over earned times just kind of sleepwalk through that game. Of course, it concerns you. I think I think that's totally in the past. I think the bigger. Today. You know, this team always better when you know guys stacked against the spice. Today. It's got to quit down Senator Dole. Got to play as a favourite. Strange for air force. When we come back to twenty five or nothing round against Wyoming. Mexico one year when New Mexico it swept at during the season. You know, it's just they surprise people trying to win. They win very often. It'd be a surprise if they lost. And I think that's just a strange transformation Karenni air force team to go through because they're just not being that guy. So I think today's a scary game for air force. I think they get through that. Certainly this just becomes a tournament where they can they can be themselves and. Pretty favorable road to do that today's one. From from a basketball standpoint. Yes. The mentality of air force being the favorite is different. Is a different color for them to wear certainly. But is there anything from a basketball standpoint when it comes to San Jose State that you would worry about if you're an air force fan. Yes. I mean, there's a couple of things. I mean, Michael Stedman there. They're forward center. He's six ten and he's average something like fifteen against their force two games this year. And remember, I mean, San Jose took air force double overtime. They had a seventeen. When they played in San Jose. An air force needed that last second threesome Chris to win that game. So that was a tight game reports air force played a tremendous. I got up by twenty five. Cut that to twelve a couple of times a second half. So it's not like, basically if we're for hives totally dominated them for one the other three were pretty competitive. So, you know, I don't think it's as it's a walk the way you would think if be just let the San Jose's record in San Jose. Mexico. So they've got some things going for them. They've got a lot of height they can pack in his I'm gonna make. Which you know, just never know what's gonna happen when that's the case and shooters which air forces, you know, Trump struggled at times. So there's a lot of ways San Jose could have some success. But again, I think if you just paid attention that game a Boise state air force wasn't there. Mentally, and if they have. Against San Jose because they're not in the right frame of mind. All those things start playing a lot bigger than they would at air force could be in trouble. Brent Brigham into gazette. Joining us live from Las Vegas air force in San Jose State, begin our coverage begins at four thirty tip off just after five o'clock here on Xtra sports thirteen hundred. So let's spin this forward, you mentioned the as favourable a dry as you can expect being a six seed, we still understand that air force after today is not going to be favored to win any of their games. But you look at the match ups that they potentially have let's start with Fresno. We know what they were able to do win the first time since the Clinton administration in Fresno, obviously, a big win on top of a season with a lot of big wins. Why have they had so much success against Fresno? And do you think they can replicate it on a neutral floor there in Vegas? I mean, I'm sorry. Played them on. You're right. They beat them. One time president was very cold. It's a pretty guard oriented team. So how much of their coq perimeter was because of air forces defense. Not night. You know, it can't ever tell you know, you kind of need to play the game to see that. Obviously force have confidence knowing. Because of that. So maybe that makes it easier to replicate. But it's also a game where you get some insights from Scott. Because their strike here. This is with regards. So you know, it's just like maybe I go stay is having an armed game against air force because of its height air force. Just can't really think about it. Krasnov sticks. One of those teams were stack up, you know, total against them because they can defend on the things they need to do to combat that. Whereas some teams are just such horrible matchup. You just kind of need an off night. So fresno's not one of those two for now is a team. Going as you know, is is going to give them a good game. So I think that's a pretty good to me. Rex goes down to Wyoming. Utah state and talk about crazy situation. Roman were knocked off Utah state air force would certainly be five teams on inside of the bracket. So well, you never know what's gonna happen here. But I mean, obviously wanting to Mexico could still come back and beat Wyoming and Utah state's not gonna take any reviles because they're Republican may need everyone. They can get. So it's gonna be a fun tournament out. Here already is just go down. And like I said right now the game's going on between Wyoming, New Mexico. So. How far do they need to get to be able to play in a postseason tournament? Utah state. No, I'm talking about air force to play to get an invitation to one of these CBI or anything like that to play pass this weekend other than winning the whole tournament. Right. But how far would they need to get? They would they would need to win the whole thing because anything else even if they get three wins. But then they you know, obviously, there's a championship game. And it's it's my understanding is Meyer five hundred or better. Okay. So air forces. They're only Kansas to win me. You know, if you went through a three games to have especially three. That is a nice exclamation point to to to a strong season and leaves them next year. When all of these guys will be a year older, they really lose powder who because of the injuries has been reduced to you know, not what he wants was. During the whole roster MAC, and you get these guys one more year of experience, and I think everything's Corning next year, but having winning a couple of games here really really help that help watching schoolwork, but of course, winning the tournament tournament. Something will. Yeah. Bill certainly be a lot of fun starting today. Again, coverage starting at four thirty tip off just after five o'clock here in the mountain time zone air force in San Jose State. And then a matchup with Fresno state tomorrow night if the falcons were to move on. Of course, I brand Scott the mountain west tournament covered as well as anyone so follow him on Twitter at Brigham. And and then of course, read him in print and online gazette dot com. A brand I appreciate your time. I don't want to leave you on a low note. But just so you know, I the chiefs cut Eric berry about an hour ago. Yeah. I'm I'm aware that okay? No, I don't think it's got to clean house on them. I do hope everybody back home is safe in the. Situation whether is beautiful here. Well, enjoy it. And then hopefully, you get to extend your stay much longer than just today. Thanks brent. Yup. Brent Brigham and they gazette joining us here on drive time sports. Yeah. I mean, you wanna look for optimism in luck. We're wearing the optimism game. When it comes to. A lot of our local teams. We have to colleges in town that have the most strict academic standards of. Nearly any college in the country right air. And I'm not just talking about air force some time out Colorado college too. People forget sometimes. How high of standards CC has so. When we know we're up against it a little bit. We're not going to be able to get all of these blue chip athletes. Into school either at air force. We create this bobble of of optimism. It's like, you know, what maybe maybe just maybe we can we've seen this team win some games that they weren't supposed to win. And you look at the setup andbranch, right? I don't think brain is. You know, anybody is being misguided. When they talk about the dry air force hands bad the worst team in the mountain west tonight. Then they have a team they've already beaten. Then as Brent says if by some. Chance Wyoming knocks off Utah state than air force gets another team they've beaten, and even if they Wyoming doesn't beat Utah state. They still don't get Nevada. So. This is as good of a dry as air force in the decade of the twenty tens is going to get and we'll see what they what they have in store. Gotta just no doubt about it tonight. They can't mess around with San Jose State. Because then that optimism of well, Fresno. And may it goes away if they have to be San Jose State on a Chris Joyce buzzer beater again like. It goes all away. So gotta just. Dispense of a dispatch. I should say dispatch of the San Jose State Spartans don't even make it a game. Again. That's coming up at four thirty here on Xtra sports thirteen hundred coming up next. We stick with hoops. But moved to the NBA Michael Malone. Another reason why he should be coach of the year. I'll tell you what it is after we take a look at your Wednesday traffic..

"And I had a great weekend last week and a one game that ended up by that San Diego yet a couple tough ones. Virginia Tech at Pitt. Justin Robinson, still out Virginia Tech favorite six. I'll look at Pittsburgh. I liked the way the cable boys are plowed cable brothers or coaching. No question. I mean, they're one of the more teams in the country for for Pittsburgh, Virginia Tech, spanner mess here. I got overpriced after you know, holding that. Although I'll say this KT, I if you look at it doesn't look good as far as ATS for Pittsburgh last, eight games, Owen, h straight up owing eight against the number path for me after looking at that. Yeah. No Dow can take that LaSalle at Saint Louis Saint Louis minus seven and a half at home Billiton's back on track. Probably stay away their Arlington at Arkansas state Arlington's going to lay one and a half at St. UNLV at San Jose State rebels minus twelve one forty seven. I mean, again on paper, they should cover it. But some just tells me San Jose State will be inside at ten. Yeah. I don't trust UNLV, even though they state if we're talking major conferences. Top ten twelve conference at San Jose State. The worst team out of any of those cop. I mean a very poor Spartan team this year. But I don't trust the wraps coach way during a bang-up job. There in Baton Rouge. You're going to take on creams guys down in Georgia, Georgia play some good ball at home a point number for LSU. I'll stay away. I respect your home court. But I do like the way that LSU is finding ways to win on the road. I'm on the Georgia side give me them, plus the points, even though they fail to cover the number each of the last five games as they have some good performances, including an outright upset over Texas at home earlier, just a bath. Alex. You saw like they won the title in the last game against Kentucky on the road. I think they come down there a little bit. Gimmie the BULLDOGS. Yeah. I think Hardaway's boys will be up against I think taco fall deny them any bounds. I think central Florida roles are laying five and a half to Memphis. Memphis. You know, playing a pill and some of those games will be another one. Yeah. And Memphis, look at their home away. But on the road. Especially as of late at have been a good luck. A lot of blowout. Losses on the road. They they did beat East Carolina in their last game. But he's Carolina's one of the worst teams report has got revenge for twenty point loss against Memphis and Hardaway I coach or Memphis was Turpin after that game. I think you see us very motivated here. Tampa dump these boys out south Florida, pick them game. I'll stay away I respect fee and south Florida. They got blown out by UCF the other day. Yeah. Lean south Florida for me. But by won't make my car, Illinois, Chicago, they're gonna lay one at Youngstown stay away from that one. I wet Rutgers big game for France can't slip up. I told him be careful Piscataway, Ohio State. Got tripped up there. I will playing good ball to go for number twenty. But Rutgers just comes off a road win. You know? I mean, all of a sudden Rutgers, you know, showing that they can play ball. They get you in the fifties. Mad fifties in low sixties, they can beat you. Yeah. And they've covered Rutgers five of their last seven games, although the total saying it's going to be played more of a pay for that that I was used to the total close to one fifty for that reason just a slight lean on the Hawkeyes for. Yeah. And could have good games downloads. I think France going to rely on that before he's worried about Bohannon and the guy shooting the threes wise camp eastern, Michigan can stay Kent state, minus three and a half four up to foremost places. I like to see some Michigan made money on them last week. Can't come off a big win the other day by twenty big second half where you going on this one top. I mean, it's like picking between children. Both teams have been good moneymakers here laughter at three or four weeks. So I think the number comes about right ear right up four. That's what I made it. So total paths for me. All right, then we've got Hofstra at UNC Wilmington after laying nine and a half could only look there. That's Alex got a heck of a squad colonial head and shoulders above everybody else. William and Mary at Eline, William and Mary minus four and a half one forty five. Games. The lines are just starting to come out Browns at Columbia Dartmouth at Princeton Harvard at Penn and yell at Cornell. That's because they all play on Friday as well. I you p you I awful loss at Cleveland state, minus four the Jags will be refocused coming off the law saw at the battle back against Youngstown the whole game and the blues and by deuce the other day, you touching that. No, I'm not total paths for me, Fresno state again. Good job by. First year. Coach any what are you gonna do? Hudson can flat out our Hughes jets just in Hudson can flat out coach there. And of course, an assistant for UNLV, and then San Diego State now Fresno state's taken on New Mexico down there in the pit fresno's only laying too. But we saw New Mexico step up and take out and then paulie with their coach. But they were able to take out in Nevada earlier this year, probably stay away, but fresno's darn good. Now, they're fun to watch. Yeah. I just do early. Money's on New Mexico. It seems like a little bit of a tough spot for them. New mexico. Not only beat Nevada a couple of weeks. Also took down standing or staying at home. I don't play the play. I'd only look towards the dog looks like some of the values already have been swept away, San Diego State, minus four and a half at home against Boise. Lina at tech for me. That'd be only way to go. Yeah. We'll have to go hundred miles an hour here to get these in Oakland at Milwaukee Oakland modest one and probably look there. Yep. Path for me. Lafayette, Lafayette, a one point home favourite. Another pass from me K Washington at wazoo was planned better. Ball got a sweep of the in the schools last week Washington finally got beat at ASU Washington minus plus they're Super Bowl. I don't want to get during stay rival. Yeah. I like the kooks. I know I liked him against them on the gridiron to how that workout. Not good. The big brother big brother just steps on them. You talk about Toledo on Ben Ben bowling green. It's a similar scenario here. Southern Cal at Cal southern CAL's gonna lay seven look UCLA was lucky to get out of there with the w the other day at the hospital billion USC, really underachieving. I'll stay away from the game. Tennessee. I mean cows really I mean by far and away the worst team in the Pac twelve but I can't try Trojans lane seven on the road. No doubt. Tennessee and Kentucky. It'll be a great one Kentucky three and a half little higher than I thought. It would be Barnes boys getting disrespected number one team in the country. I I'm seeing a four out there, man. I I at four I would take Tennessee. I'm all over Kentucky dam. Lots back the back home game ever ever under John Calipari. That's ten years and locked back to back home games. But have they ever in those ten years lost one? And then played the number one team in the country in the second one. Well, of course, not I mean, I'll say this one Kentucky at home under Calipari length six points or lap dog role it covered sixty five percent against the spread. Tennessee hasn't played a top thirty team December nine against Gonzaga. They've been feeding on the bottom feeders of the FCC Kentucky. And that time has played seven thirty teams. We you'd have a friendly bet on that's one another dinner on the line. I'm just saying if it said four I said, I'd love I'd look Tennessee. But I'll give you more body. You wanna bet now respell respect Kentucky. I'll give you that one. I'll respecting I respect blue nation. And I think the place going to be jumping and Tennessee they did get lucky and vandy. So I remember that one they shouldn't have won that game, Bradley at Illinois state. Illinois state minus is four Bradley playing much better of I'll probably look at the Braves there. They won for the last five to Paul at Butler, Butler mind is six and a half against Paul and apologised got beat up the other day by Marquette at home. I'll look at Butler there they shot it while the other night. Yeah. Slightly a Butler for their. I mean, Paul been up and down all the box. I could trust them on the road. I'll look at Delaware. This a pretty good team. Got the road win in double OT against house. And now they're gonna play James Madison. A team that had a nineteen point lead held on to win by two the other night Delaware's gonna catch two and a half on the road. I'll look at the fighting blue ends. Yeah. I agree with you KT what Martin angles be their head coach for point guard Notre Dame. Assistant coach for the Irish I like irony just roll through the rest of these real quick. And Brad has anything really about four and a half five minutes. We gotta get out early on north western Nebraska. We know Copeland's out Nebraska's, minus five at home. Mississippi State at Arkansas, Mississippi State mine is one and a half in the boys from starkville lane one and half. After Mike Anderson in Fayetteville Pacific at Santa Clara Santa Clara at home, minus one total one thirty Fullerton at Northridge Fullerton. Got the win the other day I had to hold on against the beach one by three. Now, they go to Northridge they're gonna lay two and a half the beaches at UC Davis Davis laying five I'll look at UC Davis. They're baggies. Playing good ball to care business at the thunderdome took care of business in Hawaii. I mean this Davis teams playing good ball right now. You've got UCLA at Stanford Stanford a one and a one point favorite total one fifty and a half UCLA fortunate to come back and beat Cal Stanford found a way to come back beat as C San Fran at Portland, San Fran struggle the other night, but found a way to get it done. They're going to lay sixteen at Portland pilots are terrible. But I can't. Play that many was San Fran right now. Gonzagas at San Diego line is sixteen San Diego be smarting after that lost the blue that big lead against BYU. But I don't know if they're going to be able to hang with zags eggs may be a little tired after that game with LMU last night ASU's in Salt Lake City to take on Christo VX boys who had a big second half and beat Arizona ASU minus one they shouldn't be favored right now. They, you know..
"san jose state" Discussed on 760 KFMB Radio
"Outshot last, San Jose State, sixty seven to fifty six in San Jose last night. The takes visit New Mexico. Oh on Tuesday. I'm Eric Roy AM seven sixty K FM, B, talk and breaking it. The following program is a paid advertisement. And the opinions expressed do not necessarily reflect those of the staff and management of KF MB. Retirement is often seen as the end as the last stage of one's life. But in the next hour or so we're going to talk about why we believe that line of thinking is an accurate. It's a new phase of life. But it's definitely not the finish line and retirement can last such a long time we can break it down into separate stages. And that's what we'll focus on today on retire. Right because I've seen in white bake so much for joining us today generally Zack here alongside Dave Epstein. And Brad white. They are with Epstein in white retirement income solutions, Dave's an investment adviser Representative with more than three decades of financial planning experience. Brad white is a certified financial planner and an investment adviser Representative he is the author of the step by step guide on how to retire. Right. And Brad going to start with you today to stages of retirement. How do you explain this year clients will you said something important in the middle of that? I don't I don't want us to get lost on which is retirements not the finish line. Right. No. For those of you that listen often. I referenced conversations I've. Had with my dad this year is he's been doing a lot of his own retirement planning and and wanting to do this. And that was his comment to me at first gen which is Brad I can I can see the finish line. I can see it getting close. And I said, you know, while while I kind of understand why you say that obviously he was saying it more than excited way of seeing this kind of horizon. My first comment was no this is the starting line. Now, that's what I want people to. I mean, I think intuitively hopefully, people realize this. Here's what I mean. By that we often quote this number on her show where if you've worked forty hours a week forty eight weeks for a year and forty years of your life. You've worked over seventy six thousand hours in your life. I mean, you've worked really really hard for me Seventy-six thousand hours of your life or longer or longer to get to this point. And all of this was supposed to be this. I mean what I say all of this. You know, let's not get lost on raising kids. You know, maybe sending them to college, maybe helping all Denver charitable and Philip philanthropic things throughout your life. And the journey, Bradley. Let's say the journey should have been hopefully enjoyable. Yeah. So I don't I just wanna make obviously the journey and all of that is clearly, you know. Yeah. But, but you know, in the context of a retirement planning discussion all of that. Of course was also met the savings along the way. Right. You would put it this way. Now think this through. You would have been able to do more of those things along the way had you not been focused on saving. Also. Right, right. So that's probably how I should phrase it, which is a balance right between the money that you use throughout it to live at journey right to do all of those things to enjoy the journey and rightfully so. But we all could do more of those fun things in that moment, we weren't concerned about saving for our future sacrifice during those Seventy-six thousand hours in order to make sure that her future is also bright not just those moments along the way and all of that sacrifice of saving. Now. The best part about it is heck if you retire in your earlier, mid sixties, this could be twenty five or thirty years or more for you. Right. So the golden years now our or more golden for a longer period of time. Ideally now when you talk about three phases, Jen, this has been something kind of brought about over the last maybe ten or twenty years because again, this is really the first time that we have maybe a twenty or thirty years. More retirement. So it's been the first time ever we would think about breaking this up in phases. Which you know, there's different terminologies for this summer, a little more funny than others are a lot of it is the go go years towards the beginning, the slow go, right? Here's later on in the Nogo right years later. And so again, that's kind of a kind of a funny way to phrase it. But essentially what it means is that you tend to have more of an active period. Maybe let's call the first ten years or so of retirement, and then all of a sudden, maybe the the lust of travel or or some other things maybe wane a little bit. And maybe we don't do quite as much of that. So there's a little bit of a transition. And obviously as we get to be maybe let's call it our our eighties or mid eighties or later. That's that's certainly a a another transition altogether where you tend not to do as much of, unfortunately, maybe the fun active things wanna deal with airports and all that stuff. Yeah. So those are kind of the three phases. But it's not the same for everybody gender. And I think a point that I want to make here is the this is in my. Opinion, the fun part. Yes. I said it the fun part of financial planning and retirement planning. I, you know, I think a lot of people probably don't do financial planning for two main reasons. One is maybe they're just scared to find out the answers. I know this happens a lot for a lot of people when it comes to medical reasons. They just don't go to the doctor that often they will admit it's a fear of you know, I just don't. Don't want an even know something's wrong with me. And that's not the right attitude. That's not a good attitude, and unfortunately, financial planning, I think that happens were penpal feel maybe embarrassed or they feel like they've made mistakes or they're they feel like they're not on track or in good enough shape. And a lot of people feel like well once I get this from underneath me at once. I save better. And once I'm in a better position. Then I'll go talk to that financial planner, and we really really want to urge you to not have that stance. You know, we're all human beings. We've all done some good things. We've all made some good decisions, and no doubt, we've all made some bad ones. And we all had things happen in life. That are out of our control. We've seen plenty of really good hardworking people that had an illness or had a family member have something happen or had a a business that maybe had a bankruptcy in two thousand and eight or had or had four kids that they put the college kids that they put through college. And so we really really never want any of you to feel any of those potential reasons why not to come see us and not to come see a financial planner the best thing, you could always do is is the right now is to do the best you can with whatever you have at the moment. Not worry about whatever did or didn't happen in the past. That's right. So throwing that tangent aside here for a little bit when we think of the fun part of financial planning. I think the other reason people don't get this done as often because they perceive this to be a long drawn out meeting staring at spreadsheets and numbers and taxes are their numbers and taxes and investment involves in a financial plan. Of course. That's the stuff we stare at four you. That's the stuff we manipulate that. We put together that we organized that we optimize or you your part of this equation. As a discussion of of usually a smile on your face. I have one now is saying this because I'm thinking of how many people I talk to. And you guys have this mile on your face because this is a discussion of what you wanna do with your life. That's what we want to ask you when. You come see us. And this is perfectly correlated to kind of these three phases. Jen because very often someone might come in and say, hey, we've had this dream of you know, once we retire being able to travel around the world we've had this. I can think of a couple maybe a year or two ago. It's not recent but they were both fans of golfing. And so they had this dream of being able to just go pick out courses in all these different states and all these different countries over like a couple year period of time and just travel the world and golf with each other. And they've not had a lot of time through their careers to do something like that. I mean, what an awesome cool thing to think of. That's the kind of stuff we want to think about it. We want you to think about when you think about retirement planning, we want you to think about what your goals, what your aspirated we want you to envision that perfect day, then and we're going to show you how to pay for it exactly did you. I mean, you might not have even known this guys, but you can design a custom plan, which we do for people all the time where you might say, I want more proportionate money the first five years or ten years. Retirement, and we do plan on not need as much later on which means if we build a plan, we can go ahead, and we call front-load and give you more that income day one. But with that being said, unfortunately, a lot of people try to do things like this, and they're not skilled enough to see what might happen in the future. They'll kind of say just do this willy nilly on their own and say, okay, we're we're gonna spend more money we want to do more travel, and then we'll dissipate, and they don't take things like inflation into consideration taxes. They don't take things like what if taxes rise in the future? We're going to talk about that on today's show. They don't take things into consideration. Which is what if they have a medical or long-term care vet for one or both of them or or the share of of Medicare costs continue to rise, thus stealing money out of your social security check. So we already talked about this, right? You might have worked over seventy six thousand hours in your life. You've put so much into this. You sacrifice so much to save. What you have to be able to do all these things to enjoy retirement. Here's our promise to you. You spend an hour with us. And we're going to help you optimize the rest of the seventy six thousand hours. Hours, and it gets even better because the way that our process works here. We have no charge for you to come in. And do this, no obligation. They've your checkbook at home to become a client. I don't know how many people several hundred thousands of come through this process over the years of Epstein and white not everybody has had need to become a long term client. But we're always proud to say that every time we ask was it worth it for you to come in. Did you get your questions answered you feel better? Do you feel more prepared about everything that you have in the answer's always? Yes. So for some of you, it is a whole bunch of things that we can do for you, and for others, maybe a minor tweak here there who knows. But it just starts with a conversation with us..

So James I of question you about Nevada. Yes. When I watched Nevada, it seems like they just don't even care sometimes. But when they wanna turn it on. I mean, they turn it on like nobody else in the country. Do you agree with that? Well, they have a gear that no one else has that they play in the conference has they have a gear they have a level. They get to. I'm not going to compare him to Golden State cast off air. That's a totally different. But for the mountain west there the warriors of the mountain. Amount. Was they have that gear that no one else has user on defense. The defense kicks into high gear in the second half in next.

But besides that they've got Michael Thomas who's having an unbelievable year. But if you if you doubled him in which they obviously were this weekend. You've got.
