"Him at the expense of somebody else getting loose saying skippers what they did. They found a weak link. The right tackle blah blah. Who put the backup in there. And he wore him up. He was inside outside spinning top. Okay so we wind up with a hundred and ninety eight yards rushing. Who saw that coming a team. That is just passed. Happy to the point of being passed nutty right. We ran the football right down their throats. We took control the game early and then we took back control the game late. That's how you win games on the road. My quarterback one for the first time in seven road games. He was oh in six in his last six road game and he finally broke through and deserve to win this one because he took it over late. And here's a little stat for you. My team is now twenty five and under dak prescott as a starter when they run more than pass. Maybe they found the magic formula. The whole docu can't check out of every grunt. Call that you get your helmet right. Well baby maybe because they got. Zack martin back. You wanted to check it out a whole different ballgame. I'll call you like. But he zack. Martin and he didn't get to play yesterday. I thought maybe he would be in place of center. But it didn't seem to matter they hung on. I still think gets overmatched and occasionally got just ramrod and knocked on his tail yesterday but it did not matter and my defense continues to make plays when they absolutely have to be made. Could we see what my mantra von digs did just shock me in the first quarter when out of nowhere. I thought here comes justin herb. He went twenty yards and twenty two yards. And i thought oh he just gonna march down the field. And here's justed herbert to trevan dick's. He just snuck right in in front of the receiver and just snatched it now. That was a big. That's a pro bowl. Play dummy riot. Yeah that's a cucuta rodney. No really undercut. And he got him any cardi and a lot of. Db's can't catch that. That was a really good. Catch my right okay. So then that comes right back not to his credit. And just when. I think we're just gonna storm in from fourteen. Nothing and he throws an inexplicable interception. Six oh nine in the first quarter we could see this. He just throws it to nobody. I don't know where it's going and sales is just like i don't know i think it was for cd. Because the market was running clinton cd and who just failed him skip it just sailed so this is the kind of play that my team just unravels over where they look at each other like here. We go again right. But they didn't here we go again. They gave a field goal. So it's only seven to three and then we come right back and we go seventy five yards in seven. Plays at the end of the quarter. And we're ahead fourteen to three and i'm saying this team is different. This team has a new spirit. This team has a new collective force about it. We're it's got some young talent that doesn't know the difference and all of a sudden. I'm thinking we just might have this. So they roar back in the second quarter and and they cut it to fourteen eleven the weirdest score ever it was the only fourteen eleven halftime score in the history of the national football league and yet near the end of the first half. We we have another blunder. The kid camaro who was the the star who merged on hard knocks. We got his mom family from africa and he barely made the team. We got to see him. Make the team. So he's trying to make a play on a punt block and you just can't make. It was just all over zealous bottle. New why you would call this. Why would you even call a situation like this. I don't know. I'm not sure if it was a call pump like i don't know maybe he just got a wild hair and said i'm going to be i'm gonna make a play i'm gonna live up. Yeah and it's not just running into it is roughing and south faithful with us. They missed their forty four yard field goal. And that's what i said. Maybe this is our day a guy that barely mixed the team. He's not gonna go and says you know what. I'm gonna go blocked because normally your job is to stand standing out block. The guy only return left. They called pump block. Yup i agree so then very quickly. Could we see a very interesting. That happened at the end of the half. Because instead of throwing hail mary to the zone you went half a hail mary to cd who suddenly gets loose this bank and run with the football. They ran him out of the backfield wants for thirteen yards. And he's loosened he's loose and for a while. I thought he was just going to say. I got this. But the play that's called is a lateral play. And here comes zeke. And at the end of the play. I'm thinking if that had been tony pollard. Would maybe he had that gear and got into the pylon. I don't know i don't know. Maybe maybe but zeke is not the speedster. He used to be at the ohio. Best of miami play against you patriots and that is true and it's exactly what it was but it didn't quite get home and so i thought maybe that would have done it. You know that's the kind of wins the game but now we gotta do it the hard way and could we see then what happens. It gets to be third and goal at the nine. This is late in the third quarter and it looked like we're in trouble again. And guess who came out of nowhere my little man qazi from atlanta who played for the worst pass defense in the history of pro football last year in atlanta. He makes this play on justin. Herbert kazeem made apply just the way he made it on. Chris godwin remember at tampa. When chris godwin looked like he was going. In for the touchdown that would've broken the game open. Keenum amendments live. Yep he slipped and kazeem makes a play so we had two big picks of justice. Herbert i'm going to remind everybody. That's the same justin. Herbert who converted fourteen of one thousand nine hundred downs at washington. The team that you. I think you know we'll find out later today. Which team you think in the east is the biggest threat. It was philly then it went to washington. Who knows it may be the giants. You'll be okay. But just herbert beat the team. I think you think is the threat to dallas at washington. He beat them with fourteen of nineteen third down. Conversions and my team intercepted him twice in game turning situations. Right right okay. So then i've got a show one more play here in the next series. Jack gets sacked and it's a huge. It's a third nine play from the sixteen. This is with eleven twenty one left in the game. He gets sacked and he fumbles in. This could have ended me and guess who poundstone the football. My hall of fame bound guards. Zack martin he makes the play of the game for me. Because if you don't fall on this ball. I think we're try speaking of jared cook. We're about to get to. But i thought we were cooked. And zack. martin says. I got this and that set up the ability to kick a field goal. That gave you the seventy. You always get what happens. Normally when guys get like that. They get rolled up from the back. Usually they do. I would agree with you. Okay so.

"Welcome back to sports Talk and chase dickhead. Clements Speedo on a Friday final segment here, 51283605 nineties. You want to mention the news we're talking about during the break about about Houston and Cincinnati. You see, they're all uh oh, yeah, the the the teams. We discussed a little bit yesterday. Therefore, teams who are apparently going to replace the two teams leaving the big 12 Texas And are you going to the SEC? We believe next season. And it is reported that BYU who is independent, but then Cincinnati, Central Florida and Houston, who are all of the American athletic Conference are expected to join the Big 12. ESPN just reported that they could apply so that that they are expected to apply now and could be approved as early as September. 10th. So as early as a week from today, you could know the future of the of the big 12 conference. Now the foot is the future. Yeah. What is the timeline? Because those teams I believe are supposed to give 27 months notice. Right? That's quite a lease. You got yourself there guys. 27 months notice before they can leave the A C I You know, there's enough money you can buy your way out. But do you want to buy your way out early to get to the big 12 to see But it's got left of it. But it's more money, though. It's still going to be more money than they're making now, So it's all about money. Mm. We shall see what we shall see Well, but it's more money than they're making now because they're joining a conference that has Iowa State, Oklahoma State, Texas Tech and Baylor and TCU. Right, Uh, when the big 10 says, Okay, Iowa state it's on, Let's go. And then you know the A. C C calls on West Virginia, right? All of a sudden you're Houston and Cincinnati. And you're in the in the same conference that you are in the A C except you paid $17 million to get out early. I think this is a stopgap for the big 12 for a couple of years and then I think you'll have teams will be absorbed. I think the Pac 12 will then expand in the A. C C will expand. Mhm. I think.

Gay, uh, you know, building defects happened, but it's just weird that entire It wasn't it was not an entire building, but a good portion of the building would just literally drop. Out of the sky, So I'm not strange. I'm not a construction gay. Um, And maybe somebody you know didn't check on it or maintenance. I mean, I have no idea.

Uh, and earthquake has not been reported there. No, um the color or the texture is talking about there was a floor that collapsed and endeavoured Tech center high rise would cause the 14th Florida collapse. This is in 2007. There was were people killed in them. No, nobody was killed. Um, they said This is the formwork. For whatever reason in that section, where they're poring came detached and a drop to the level below. Mm. Some of the injured workers were on top and others were underneath when the 14th floor gave way, falling one floor to the 12. The building has no 13th floor, so one of the workers was trapped. He and three others suffered serious injuries. Gosh, I didn't. I'd forgotten about that story. Meciar ever remember hearing to me the story? Um again, Dave, Rick and Cathy gonna hang around till noon today. What happened last night Rockies We salute the Rockies. They got their sixth road victory of the year. Beating the Mariners 52. So there's six and 28 Uh, Game one of the Eastern Conference finals. Milwaukee hosting Atlanta. Bizarre game. I mean, Milwaukee, Milwaukee is the prohibitive favorite in the series, but Atlanta got the first game 1 16, 1 13 and Trae Young. Just a phenomenal performance. At 48. 11 assists. It is completely dominated the game. And People compare him to Steph Curry, and I'm a huge Steph Curry fan. I love Trey Young's game to betray Young is Quite a bit smaller than Steph Curry. Steph Curry's 63. Probably a buck 85 Trae Young is like 61. Maybe At a buck 75 so You. You, You know, you have to really dig in your memory to think of like, OK. Have we ever seen a player that could dominate? Game in so many different ways. That is Trae young size. Nate Archibald was a great I mean, there have been some great smaller players, Isaiah I mean, there have been those guys but, man. Oh, man. I mean, it was It was special to watch. Watch just a little bit of it. And, um, the bucks were behind. It just looked like I was probably watching the middle part of the game. It looked like they were going to lose the game. It's like they just didn't have it. I I thought I thought they were going to win the game all the way until the last 90 seconds. It just didn't look right to me. And you're right. Trey Young had a I mean, that's a monster game. Can you imagine when he's done playing basketball in the NBA? And then he goes to the old man's rec leagues. You can imagine what a nightmare he's going to be. You know, for someone, he's like 40. He's not still plan and he goes and you know you're going to Thursday night after you've already had tacos the games at 7 30 you've had you went to the Taco bar at six because You were hungry for tacos. And then you go to the local gym Thursday night Rec league. You got a good team. You guys are five and one and here comes this guy. Who then goes for 80 like in one game. I mean, He scores I mean scores 48 in the NBA. First player ever in a playoff conference finals game to score 45 points and record 10 assists, ever. Yeah, you had 48 11. Yeah, I mean, that's that's special company and to look at him. If you didn't know who he was, If he walked in, you'd be like Mhm. Normal looking dude, you 61 Buck 75. But he is He is skill. He's a lot of fun to watch. I never thought he would have this kind of success in the NBA. I mean, I know he was great at Oklahoma in college. But I never thought with how small he is that he could perform like this. And the way he gets to the rim at that size is incredible. Yeah, he's got great quickness. Has the ability obviously to shoot from distance and so you have to honor that and when you honor it a little bit too much. He's got to handle the step by you that he's a master at creating contact. He's a great passer lob pass, he went in in Rick and Cathy in the third quarter. Maybe it's the fourth quarter last night, he shake somebody at the top of the key drives the lane. The defender comes over. He passes it. Off the backboard..

The chip alone v. liggett trial reached. Its climax four years. After the plaintiff rose chip alone died from lung cancer. The case was a posthumous win for rose but it wasn't without sacrifice and the hard work of some clever attorneys rose's husband antonio and her lawyer mark idel continued the fighted her place in a decisive move. Mark pointed out the irony in big tobacco's defense according to the logic of liggett's lawyers if you were a smoker who trusted big tobacco to warn you about the dangers of smoking. You got what you deserved marks argument along with some damning evidence that revealed the company's awareness of carcinogens in their product convinced the jury they blamed legged for failing to warn smokers like rose before the surgeon. General's order in the sixties. The jury found that rose was eighty percent to blame for deciding to smoke and continuing to smoke. However twenty percent of rose's death was the fault of big tobacco and for that twenty percent liggett was required to pay four hundred thousand dollars. in damages. to rose's estate even though big tobacco was worth billions. This was the first of any court case defined cigarette companies at fault for killing a customer. The smoking industries impregnable defense was breached but antonio and mark didn't have long to celebrate this historic win because liggett appealed the verdict and took the case to the supreme court before it was resolved antonio died in nineteen ninety on october. Eighth nineteen ninety-one. The supreme court case started rose's son thomas now stood with mark to represent the family after both sides re argued their cases. The supreme court issued its conclusion in a six three decision. The result of that vote was unfortunately mixed. They found that the surgeon general's warning labels didn't grant immunity to big tobacco from personal injury lawsuits. But the case needed to be retried to move matters forward. Although this sounded like a stalemate it was major win for liggett because after nine years of litigation rose and antonio were dead and their legal team was running out of resources. It was a war of attrition on november fifth nineteen ninety. Two thomas and mark agreed to drop the lawsuit after their nineteen eighty eight defeat. Big tobacco had discovered a new legal strategy with their product killing their customers. All they had to do was wait until the plaintiffs went broke or died through the nineties. Tobacco companies were still denying any connection with their products and a global pandemic of lung heart and cancer related illnesses in nineteen ninety-four tobacco. Ceos and presidents swore under oath that they believed nicotine. One of the main chemicals in cigarettes was not addictive around that same time a uk study found that over three million people worldwide were killed from tobacco products every year in nineteen ninety-six. Six road accidents killed more than thirty six hundred people in the uk. Meanwhile tobacco killed six times that many brits that same study found that half of all longtime smokers would die from smoking. Related diseases and half of those deaths occurred during middle age. The report revealed how if this trend were allowed to continue. Cigarettes would be killing ten million people a year by twenty thirty in november nineteen ninety eight the us one the next major battle against big tobacco. The master settlement agreement restricted cigarette ads refusing to let the market to youths through cartoon mascots like joe camel. The essay also severely limited their marketing capabilities. In general then in two thousand nine congress squeezed harder on tobacco banning free cigarettes samples event sponsorships and selling flavored smokes. This impacted how tobacco companies garnered years usually in their teens with teenagers gravitating back toward tobacco during the vape epidemic. Lawmakers are still back. Although rose didn't live to see her case through it was her short lived. Victory in nineteen eighty eight that emboldened people to take care of not only their health but also the health of others.

Conversation With Mountain West Commissioner Craig Thompson
"Delighted to welcome. To our program, a very important guests at this unbelievably strange time from the Mountain West Conference Commissioner Craig Thompson Commissioner thank you very very much for making the time I I, I can only imagine what your schedule is like. These days especially Zoom Bill Assuming there is one good afternoon. Paul good to be with you. You know I hope to mode no more about The next ninety minutes to two hours I have a four o'clock board calling five o'clock standing Monday de call, so we all compare notes and Kinda live by that old adage. God gave us two ears and one off for a reason, right? We're trying to learn from each other. Well we appreciate you making time I'm curious before we get down to some of the obvious questions Since, this occurred you. You've been very obviously active in in the NCAA, basketball tournament, having chaired the the men's basketball committee, and it all started there, and and I know in in your many many years is as commissioner. You've experienced so much but How do you? How do you prepare yourself for something like this? which is literally off the charts. Really is and you know again you don't because. no-one there might have been a few people worldwide They'd be well into their hundreds that were around nineteen eighteen. Spanish flu days, but For the most part, nobody's dealt with any of this Paul. So it's all new, and and it's It's disconcerting. It's hard. It's sad, but it's It's life and it's something we. We have to adjust to and and moved from. In as you get closer to what are really critical decisions, other conferences have made these choices many have not What what do you weigh as you're about to go onto? Another call here how how do you determine these things? Well, it's really got to beat a the safety and the health soccer you I think it's simply going to come down to what is the risk tolerance for for all the various groups just within our FBI subdivision and certainly there's. A rank and file and differences between the autonomous five leaks and a group of five leaks, but You've got you've got. A ton of governors. There's fifty state governors in that up BS group, one hundred thirty board of trustees, regions, one hundred thirty university presidents and Chancellors hundred thirty athletic directors under thirty head, football coaches, and I guarantee it dollar on the same page, and so you know we're. We're just trying to adjust on what makes the most sense for my university and ultimately our conferences. And everyone has a different set of circumstances as you said Commissioner Thompson but. It is late I think you know that we all we all know that. As you are about to go on these calls here in the next hour or two How do you start narrowing the window and coming to? Conclusions! Well we all kind of went into that false pretense and hope that fans should be better in July and August and we had time right back in March. We had four months to figure this out when we've got probably less than four weeks. A couple of weeks a big date coming up on Friday with you know the the six week period starting extended team practices, and then most camps opening somewhat in that August seventh time friend I! I had a good exchange with one of our head. Football coaches today saying you know I don't even know what to do. Because of campus regulations and concerns, we have one institution that's had nearly one hundred football players for little over a month. Now Paul and we have another institution that literally has no football players, conditioning of or working out degree, and so you know we're all over the map based on a local and university, muncipality rules and regulations and. I said this for months gone on standby. One of one of the big concerns and focal points for us is the state of California They just announced today that they're going to delay. The start of their prep season suggested until December or January didn't give an exacting, and they join a couple of states that the prep seasons have been canceled altogether one of our states New Mexico, so just just trying to deal with all the nuances and differences in rules, policies and allowances. As you as you try to deal with with some some issues before that certainly, the non-conference issues a lot of non conference. Games have been scrubbed. I. Has that been a major issue for you or Were you in reasonably good shape. Well it is a big issue, and of course years of all years. This is our twenty seven season A. We had more home games against PAC twelve than any time in our previous 21-year-history, we lost home games. Ucla at both. San Diego State ally. Utah, Colorado Washington state calendars on a state. They were GONNA play at the new two billion dollar NFL stadium in Las Vegas against UNLV so a lot of people like to point to that financial loss of losing the the six road at twelve games and a and a guarantee. Those seven home games from from both of financial interest level, and then ultimately you know television perspective CBS. Fox Aren't real thrilled. You know that we lost those seven home games. Talking to the Commissioner of the Mountain West Craig Thompson discussing all the variables. Commissioner. We. We've talked to so many different commissioners over these past few months, and as you as you so eloquently pointed out a minute ago. Everyone has a different set of circumstances and challenges you maybe more than than most because of the geographical aspect. But how do you think and it shouldn't be that hard to think about it since it's not far off? How how do you ultimately come up with what you would say? Good solution, not only for your member institutions, but for the safety of the athletes. Well again. You not to lean on your medical people and that's one of the. Major aspects of this board call coming up in an hour, so Paul because It's the first time that they in a while. They've heard directly from the the medical advisory group and you know they don't depend on them. You know they. They are the experts, will we? The board are economists and Then different walks of life. They're not medical people, per se, and so you know you really have to lean heavily on what makes sense I. I said four months ago and I I contend today. A lot of this is going to be perhaps probably triggered by what happens on our campuses. What they look like in the next month or so you know everybody's either hybrid mostly online You know there's GonNa. Be Certainly people walking around campus, but you know you. You really can't expect to have a college athletics if you don't have a fairly open in some degree. Campus. Commissioner I, it's no secret Wherever conferences are located and and and spread that football pays the majority of the bills there. There's some outliers of course but What's at stake you just from a revenue standpoint? Well you know. Let's all kinds of figures in I I know that A couple of our department said have lost Well in excess of ten million dollars now, and then could jump into without football alum Paul you know double and triple, and you know those are not insignificant numbers. They're smaller than the world. You live in I lived in Atlanta. For four years. New Orleans for twelve years both children born in New Orleans and well versed in an SEC football, and what it means in a walk of life, and so it's different, no question it's different I live in Colorado and and what it's like in Western states, but but none the less. You, do not escape whatever love your Ad. That football is probably that you know eighty eighty five percent of of an athletic budget, and and so it's so very important, but you know as harmful as painful rather as it is from the financial perspective now that cannot be the driving force won't be the driving force. It will be that the health and safety it'll be university decisions. You know I've always. Always felt. The presidents of universities and chances have an extremely difficult position now more so than ever because they're pushed him pulled in and all these different directions and you know I. Don't know how the decision will. Ultimately made would fall looks like from terms of football. I don't know who makes that decision, but Hopefully they'll be some clobbering collective. Let's let's go right to the College Football playoff. Can you even imagine a world where pick a number? Three conferences can play in the fall and seven up to play in the spring. What happens to see a p.? Is there a CFP? Does that make sense to have a CFP? I guess it might depend on those three conferences are and I use. You know you, you're GONNA have to look at this for for the good of everybody, and and you know the collaboration and collective exchange and we've seen conferences. Do things unilaterally I mean as a commissioner. You Work for twelve schools. You don't work for honored thirty FBI schools, and so you're doing what's right, and what's your membership is is directing and advise you to do, but we do have to get together and get the same page in some regards spor for the sake of the CFD for instance and the bowl system. I know at least I'm told in talking to your colleagues commissioners. We wind down. I know you've got a lot of meetings to that. You are a collaborative group. I mean that's a fact. I mean we see that all the time but it but I wonder though. Because we've already seen some some. Some schisms as we had the big ten, and then everyone else said something else I mean the PAC twelve and the big ten, and do you. Are you concerned about the stability of of what you do every day and try to work with everyone else within the framework of college athletics. I am and I'm not I mean again. We try to work together, but at the end of the day our plan for fourteen or ten members, order media have will dictate. What direction are leagues go and I know the NCAA takes a ton of shots, but the NCAA is membership driven. It's schools that are that are ultimately making decisions and the conferences the exact same way, so you know we can compare but I. I am concerned about The postseason college football, the the CFC's a five hundred million dollar enterprise NCAA. Basketball Championship is a six hundred million dollars in a prize number of conferences of two hundred and fifty to three hundred million dollar annual TV, contracts, and and we can't go ten I don't well. Yeah, anything's possible. You could go ten separate ways I. certainly don't think it's going to be that way at the end of the day. Commissioner will let you get back to your meetings, but thank you for making time. It was just a pleasure to to hear your perspective as someone who is so well respected. And revered in this industry we be well and let's hope for some good news. Stay safe yourself my friend.
