Ah, court order says they're not supposed to stay in these places for more than three days, but the government paid shelters for migrant Children that are appropriate for youths have run out of room. So that's where the crisis of the border comes from. But Biden Steam refuses to call it a crisis. They're calling it a challenge, even though on Saturday, the White House announced the problem was getting so out of hand. They're dispatching workers from FEMA to the border to help move the kids out of those crude border patrol cells as quickly as possible. NPR's John

MSU Spartans... Presented by Rocket Mortgage?
"Michigan state has announced that its basketball team will now be called the msu spartans presented by rocket mortgage. You sit on a throne of lies. I would think so barat. it's true. Now here's the saving grace at. I believe in the way. I'm reading it. This is a story on. Yahoo is says the team will be called the michigan. The msu you know it presented by rocket mortgage at the breslin center. That's how they'll be known throughout the breslin center which is their home court their home arena so my guess rob is when near now announces a team. That's what he's going to call them at the beginning to gain when they come out for warm ups right before the game whatever. They're the msu sparks as presented by rocket mortgage. I don't expect that when they go elsewhere people are going to refer to them as that maybe they'll announce that before the game but obviously throughout the game everywhere you go. Call them the spartans or michigan state. You think i'm wrong. I mean there's it doesn't make it that much better but it makes it a little better to me. It's total nonsense. It's a allowed. Everything's not for sale. I'm sorry chris. I still respect the steinbrenner family. Chris for not taking the name. They could have put a name on yankee stadium on my right yes or no and made its montemar. Names right all right yankee stadium. How about madison square garden. Could it be very heels right. Could it be american express field reno. I mean they give me making money off of it and they won't do it. Can we have something. Everything's not for sale. I get it dan gilbert. Who was the president of ragweed and look is an alum. He went there. He loves the sports. He tried to hire tommaso to coach the cast. Chris i get the relationship. He's he's a spartan just beat the presenting sponsor when they when they make that announcement. You don't need to the msu sports presented by rocket mortgage. Why would you do that to your alma mater right. Well that's what i'm saying if it's anything but what i said right if is anything but okay well. We announced the team. You know we're announcing the starting lineup. The now star lineup. So the ms you spartans presented by rocket mortgage. But okay. i can deal with that. But if there you got jerseys now. And if that's what their official name is going to be elsewhere. There's a major problem. And i agree with you like and this is just this just shows the other greed. We talked about it and they're not paying players these deals. This is just a pity of the degree of this now rob. I'll even say this. I would've rather them. Just call them. The msu rockets michigan state rockets. Not is that this is ridiculous. This really is bad. And i just don't understand what all the money my god is it. Okay right don't get every nickel chris. I still would have been a sponsor right. There's tons of money probably just not as much maybe wide. I don't know how much is enough. I don't get it seriously. It's ridiculous like i say again. I'm betting that is just going to be announced at various times but not consistently

Midnight Moment - First Presidential Debate - Intro
"Patriot Nation. Welcome page midnight Mamma's special post-debate addition. It is Spartan here with you got my cryptic and welcome to the post dumpster fire of Flash show analysis Les rolled off. All right. So we put out taking a few days to actually put this podcast together this particular Edition cuz we wanted to allow ample time for our for our fans are on our Facebook page to actually comment and give their opinions of what we all we all witnessed. I'll just call it that and kind of help us decide who won the debate now. Everybody's got their everybody's got their, you know for seventies and opinions for sure. But that said I think you know regardless of what side the aisle you sit on the overwhelming opinion is is should show a cryptic any thoughts on that. I don't know if we could sum it up any better. I mean, yeah, that's exactly what it was is a complete freaking shitshow wage at times. It looked like a freaking kindergarteners trying to fight over who's ball. It is too and I think it's who on one debating he has a another another another job. Gee what I mean, if there's any professional wrestling fans or ex fans or whatever these questions it looked like one of those three-way handicap matches Trump versus the versus the moderator and versus Joe Biden all cells, but that's just my opinion going cryptic. Oh, no, that's exactly what it came off to be is I think it was something that looked like it was should have been a fair debate that many can attest to that. It wasn't. Yeah and it changed from what should have been Trump versus buy them to wash versus by tan and Chris or Trump versus Chris or Trump versus Biden. I mean, it was just a shitshow of you know biding doing all the name calling Joe's. Yeah that and there's a I'll get into in my analysis. I'll bring it up as far the tactic Biden used and it's it's actually a fairly well-known debate tactic as most of you know, I am a girl They master debater and accounting or English and I'll get into that in my kind of summation and Analysis of it. We have that we the topic of the six six sections cryptic. Once you once explain that to our our fans what were the six seconds? So we got we the six segments. So the first segment was the coronavirus which I mean girls hugging surprised. I mean that's like one of Biden's to bullet points for his entire platform besides problems bad is the coronavirus and how magically he's going to have some way to fix it besides the fact of masking the entire nation, which don't even get me started on that. Well, you know, it must be it must be a good feeling to know if you're Joe Biden age and you're as in your as low intelligence and high dementia as you clearly is, you know that we need to get an office how much money the military is going to save on gas masks and yep. Like filters because you know clearly all we have to do based on the overall effectiveness of cloth mats for the deadliest virus in history is that you know, they can just issue the military cross Mass to walk into a job. That had infections on so that must that must make him feel real good that so besides that that's the first segment the next segment at the issues they talked about is the economy which you know, that was one that will get into that had one of my one of my favorites interactions burping the two that will get into the third one was the Supreme Court which will cover their the fourth one was race and violence in American cities and phone number so classic denounced white supremacy, but you know, we're not going to take that about antifa or demand that I mean, it's only happened twenty two times previously, so nobody else. What any of those so yeah, go ahead. Sorry. Yes. Yeah, cuz you can't do research then the next segment. The next segment is Trump's and vitamins records for their time in a government. So forty seven months versus forty seven

The NFL NBA MLB hockey underwater basket weaving has become politicized in what we have to show solidarity with this. I have a question. Are you showing solidarity four? Message. Or are you As the NFL did let's put. The name of a known fell one on a helmet. Let's. Let's praise this guy because shot back when a an. Amplifier point in accused rapists. Is someone with a warning active warrants? For Rape Yes. So here in my eternal gripe with this, that will probably go down in flames just like the rest of them. Why are we? In fact. Standing behind. Someone. WHO BREAKS THE LAW? WHO does walk. Yes. They didn't listen. They got shot in the back whatever. House we say. Extenuating circumstances came to be that this ended up how that was. We have to stand behind this person as a form of. Instead of. Waiting, for all the facts that come out be proven beyond a shadow of a doubt. And then move forward from there. Well. That's the real question. Isn't it is is you know? All we've seen is what has been allowed to be released. Okay I mean look I think in his thing I agree with everything you just said save one thing. Okay. I don't think demand deserve to be shot seven times point blank in the back now. Having said that. He has an active warrant for his arrest, what he should not have done to prevent that whole situation was to surrender. Get handcuffed and be taken into to engage whatever process there is. Okay, you don't fight cops in the street if you do. You mess with the bull, you get the horns. Okay. He's admitted he was armed. He's admitted he was going for a different arm- armament. Okay. And what do we expect the COPS to die? I don't think so you know I'm. In the eyes of them, that's probably what they're saying. Well. Preserved by life fuck yours. Well exactly. The COP Exactly and and my my attitude would be y is either one wrong as far as you know, one one has a duty to behave professionally the other has a duty to follow the law. Or face the consequences you know it would have saved him from getting shot in the back if he had stopped if he turned around if he'd Toronto. Surrendered Okay Understand that I understand the Warren has has since been vacated, but that's beside the point. When a COP's his I warrant for your arrest I mean you're supposed to do is say what am I being arrested for? Okay I'll go peacefully ears might whereas my lawyer yeah. Instead, of no fuck you fight you tooth and nail, and if get away up the war still there, but you don't have me. Right. Exactly. Exactly and you know I got I got I got a I. got a interject because you know. My personal opinion is if you probably agree Is this. Cancer of case. started. It may have it may have had other sources. Okay. But its primary. Protagonist, in growth factor was Colin. Kaepernick a few years ago and I don't say that in a flattering manner. Okay. I've said it before the my opinion that Colin Kaepernick is the biggest fraud on the planet as pertains to the NFL. At least Ryan leaves when he signed what Leash Langley, when he signed, he knew he was shit approved the wish she had any faded off politely into the sunset because he saw a gay. young just tell the story as I. Recall it and you you you feel free to chime in when you. When when you when you if I'm off base okay. A lot of people don't remember this but you and I as King's football and many things in life have a have a memory quite a bit longer than than your average goldfish. Okay? I remember watching the first incidents of Cabernet court on code kneeling and he wasn't fucking Neil. He had just had an argument with his with with the head coach and I don't think it was Kelly. It may have been horrible. But he had the yard, the head, the argument with Joe it was horrible wasn't horrible yet. So out of you probably saw the clip to you can't find it now because it's Youtube everywhere else. He had he had A. Verbal altercation with Harbhajan and I can only assume in what we were told. You know later was that harbaugh. told him. No you're not starting a colon Cabernet got very unprofessional and like the diva quarterback that he is. Turn Turnhill stomped over to the bench slammed his helmet down in plop disaster down on the bench now by sheer and toll coincidence. Anthem had just started. The anthem it just started when that HAP-. ACI. I know you remember this is I think you and I talked about this at the time that it happened because we were mocking him because when I weren't weren't quarterbacks when we played the game and we know what divas they are even princesses, they are this. If you remember and I know you do espn headlines a couple of days. Later words were that Colin Kaepernick was going to be fine. Substantially for multiple instances of unprofessional conduct conduct deleterious to the team. Leading up to the altercation with harbaugh that happened where he plops his ass on the bench you remember that ideas that. Dakhla and it was it was post practice I. Believe I want a That later that week that a reporter asked him. About the state of the fines and Based on his lip based on. Let's just call it what it was temper Tantrum. Okay. And that's when Cabernet sold all this bullshit about he was doing it in protest etcetera etcetera and he played the race card, which we all know the press eats up hook line and sinker and never ever questioned. Ever On. Me It came across and partner Jackie No, you're good. The the instance of which we are discussing out my first thought on that was yes it's a temper tantrum and I'm about to be busted for having a temper tantrum. So allow me to make up some juicy. To Garner more attention to the fact that. This is happening to be Gimme Gimme. GimMe and I lost my starting spot. Well, that's the that's the point I'm making. He played the race card to avoid fight. For on professional conduct and he was he was outright given a past. I don't think he ever actually even actually got find something that was overlooked too is that is that nick is not a person of color is really not us he is a multi-racial okay and part of that find that he was going to get for unprofessional conduct was calling somebody else on the field the N. Word back can't say here because quite frankly it's feds even and number two I don't WanNa get show you monetize but that said that was part of that that was part of the fine to be levied. The fine was vacated. Okay. Because he was successful, you successfully played the race card and got out. Okay and this whole shift started this snowball at that point. as we as we all know you know he was he was basically the the the face man for chip. Kelly's offense that you know while short term short term effective was absolutely not sustainable. Okay. We all know that. And you combine that with the fact that the guy had. Just over just under a shooting just over sixty percent for completion rate. Even in that offense at his best day, he was a mediocre quarterback surrounded by a bunch of very talented people. Okay. So now it has become the fact that you know this whole narrative has has escalated by people that that know nothing about the actual game because. Football is simple. It's not easy, but it's simple. Is. The ultimate meritocracy. Okay talent hard work equals success. Okay there's a lot of guys. We can probably point him out on the field you and I. There's a lot of guys that that. That just simply outworked their competition to get where they are I'll give you. I'll give you one prime example and right now they call him the goat Tom. De. Tom. Brady was drafted was I can remember he was drafted. He was I. Don't think he was Mr irrelevant. But he was real close. He was the very bottom. Yes. Six he was very close to the very end of end of the draft in and he is he outworked is is competition. Now granted drew bledsoe. If people can remember back set for was not a very good quarterback anyways. He was only borderline better than Ryan Leaf and he went down Tom Brady took over in the rest as they say district but. No? One ever questioned, Tom? Brady's work ethic in those dynasty years in in in New England. Okay. Because he outworked he, he worked his ass off. Yes he was talented. Yes. He's physically gifted but that plus hardwork dedication to his craft turned into in the in the the hardware for the hand so to speak. and. anyways back to my point about Cabernet. All, these people talking about how Catherine doesn't have a job because he's bad for business or half rights, they're only half rice. Now I posted this to the page I know you read you probably it is I. Think I read this week we went to this is from ESPN DOT COM itself. Okay. ESPN DOT. com. The actual date this was published as March twentieth two, thousand seventeen. By their staff writer Kevin Seaford. and. I am just going to read it. I'm. GonNa. I'M GONNA. Try to read the whole thing. I'm trying Doug only try to read the parts that are relevant. But those those listening. If you go to our face, a bitch facebook dot com slash midnight patriots. You'll be able to find this article and we shared it the title of it is calling Kabir Knicks based problem performance. Politics. Day It starts off real simple. So Don't over think why Colin Kaepernick is still a free age simply put years have passed since he was ineffective quarterback he's twenty nine years old has succeeded in an unsustainable scheme as part of a well populated group of former starters who also remain available at as this week began now getting that was march twenty, twenty, seventeen. So they were in free agents. Okay. Let's. Let's move on here. It's blamed Colin Kaepernick's unemployment on his protest is to misread the way NFL teams make personnel decisions. that. I don't think there's any more true statement on Earth. Do you I? MEAN THAT'S Yeah. So it goes on protests where does say at any type of business that if you have lackluster performance, did you are guaranteed two hundred million dollar job? Number One and two I was GONNA say there have been divas troublemakers in the NFL before? Okay and Kim's and? Lewis Terrell on. You know. List goes on and on. And let's not forget the NFL is the lead cut an outright banned ray rice running back from the Ravens for domestic violence. Okay. Before he was convicted. Suspended A. Peterson for disciplining his child. Yeah for banking hit saw. Yeah. Okay for spanking his own child. Okay. So now they put criminals names on their helmet. so by but I digress I digress let's get back to the article. Just to just to go just to go. Teams are swayed I by players potential or lack thereof to help them win protest or not kapernick would be under contract. Now, if he had demonstrable if he had played demonstrably better in recent years. Let's look closer at where capper nick is as a quarterback and why that has left him sitting in a group that also includes fellow free agents, Jay Cutler Josh mccown Ryan Fitzpatrick and Robert Griffin the third. Again keep in mind. This is from shelvin teachings of this is three years ago. Okay. But. It goes on to some of the reason I liked this 'cause this is based on facts not just you know a bunch of race baiting bullshit. Kapernick grid NFL success came as part of the San Francisco Forty niners read Options Skiing Twenty, twelve to twenty four. In those three years, he rushed for Fifteen, hundred, seventy, eight yards which okay. I will give credit that impressive gudgeon impressive number. For. More than any other quarterback with the exception of Rush Russell Wilson Cam Newton so let's just call it what it is. He was third rushing quarterback against. It breath. Okay. I will not fall the net. His. Success. He threw more than twice as many touchdown passes interceptions helped him compile eighth best time quarterback rating in the NFL seventy point to over that period. But even then capper nick was one of the lease most. Least Accurate quarterbacks is sixty point one completion percentage ranked twenty third in the NFL and has percentage of off target throws judged on video by espn stats and information ranked eighteen. So. Based on just the stats alone he was a middle of the pack quarterback middle of the pack. Does that mean that he's better than half the other guys absolutely does that mean that that you know the drama he brings? Outweighs his skills is still setting the money in the monetary investment probably. Okay I agree or disagree just on that statement there. I would agree that yeah, he's a middle of the road quarterback. He had some skill. At. That position. That offense. You're right. Would it work somewhere else probably not but that's Changing teams, you learned their offensive scheme you learn what they do best blend yourself into that and you become part of the team not a one man show. that. I, mean you'd have to agree that most had coaches that have half a brain would go sixty, four, sixty point one completion percentage. even if you're even if you're going to do A. A bootleg offense even if you're going to do a boot offense. Play I can. Still going to have to be better than sixty point one. Periods I mean just entered discussion. Quarter, you're talking college level quarterback. Even if you're on a naked, do either one side, you're still depending on receivers tied ends backs to be open at some point that you can actually say, Hey, he's opened easel bewitched of the two weevils need a cheese her who exactly exactly union able to identify and hit those targets or at least give your guys in a position to succeed you know. I'd like to. Bring to Light I. Not Very long after capital started his quest masqueraded by some of justice whatever you WANNA call it only because he got in my mind and correct me if I'm wrong, he got busted out period. That's just the way it is you through Tantrum he got his ass busted will now I gotta cover with this to cover that with this, and then all of a sudden we have one big lie that snowball into the entire solstice thing that's going on currently. You're. Going to look they had to go. He ended up in Washington. In front of US rest. Explaining his side of everything that goes on great. Denver Broncos of whom I am a fan. I it. Does not get into that because. Pirate about that right. That's ultimate digression. Go ahead, John. elway. It had in fact offer Catholic before your contract. said. Hey. COMPLA-. Can come down because it wasn't enough money. Wait a minute. Let's look at your stats a sixty sixty point something or other completion percentage. Yes. You had fifteen hundred yards rushing, which as we've discussed is pretty phenomenal quarterback save. Russell. Cam. Newton. Maybe rg three hundred healthy. That's stretching it buttle throw it in there. Anyway. I. Really. Wanted to see if capital could be plugged into that offense and sell. Well, that's the that's the real trick. Isn't it? I mean? End and let's be clear. He turned it down because the salary was too low, not the money. Or maybe remember correctly, he turned it down because John elway wanted to load the one at the loaded up with incentives and say, okay, you exceed this mark you get ex you this you get what we go to the playoffs and when you get Z. Experience Cetera so wasn't of excellent. Yeah. But exactly to perform at your very best as cut your in the NFL, they don't take ship nothing while the that's when the NFL stands for not for lofts. That and let's be honest. It was not only. Did he had he had to meet performance criteria he had to me behavior criteria, EXAC? elway and the broncos weren't going to stand for this s J. W. S. J. W. Crap. That he's pulling. So let's go back to the article real quick. It'll it'll. It'll really start driving the point home. Okay. So I believe he started kneeling rating was two fifteen. So. Article Goes On. The issues that we were just talking about the increasing. Or decreasing completion percentage decreasing accuracy except sets. Those issues intensified in Twenty fifteen and twenty sixteen amid forty nine ers. Coaching turmoil in talent drain since the start of the twenty fifth season Kapernick ranks get this. Last in the NFL thirty five all five passers in off target percentage is off target twenty, two point six percent of the time which when she is the least accurate quarterback in the. League. As of the twenty. Fifteen. It goes on. Is Complete. Complete is completion percentage ranks number thirty, two at fifty, nine point one. He was still one of the NFL's most productive Shink quarterbacks, ranking number four total yardage over all those years but it didn't mitigate his passing deterioration and this is in my mind. This is the absolute most important line in the yard or ear and an adult. There is no more important attribute for quarterback accuracy especially for a free agent who is shopping himself teams with various schemes. In, the long term a quarterbacks running ability is considered a complimentary skill and one that is story. Fade with age or because of injuries, scrambling ability and arms drank are secondary to whether you can hit the target. That analysis backed up by numbers essentially wreck stay shit out of this current narrative will Cohen Governor never draw. Back. Dinners. Any beds no sorry. Have a fucking job because he sucks. Sex At what he does also, there's a theory going around the going around that it was right about twenty, nine, hundred he met his I don't know if she's still has girlfriend whatever evidently these ideas about radical justice one I'd ever definitely his girlfriend is, is some sort of radical s j w as well, and he was too stupid to either a lever to the side or be not listen door and just agree to disagree on stuff but then again. Go ahead exactly what it is. Power Pussy with exactly exactly and you quite frankly I can't fault them for that because you know that's ninety percent of marriages happen. We'll just we'll just leave at this point. Is that right there? That's You were saying regarding his ability to suck. But it started then I mean he the guy the guy got lazy. He got loud. Through the race card to cover his shit then he couldn't back up his mouth with performance. You know do you your ears? Rocco's fat okay. Let's talk about just a second. Let's talk about Shannon Sharpe just for ten seconds or for a few seconds. Okay. Shannon Sharpe. Is An arrogant prick agree or disagree now When I hang on, hang on that said. Shannon Sharpe liked to run his mouth about a lot of stuff at a lot of different times also true. Yes. Yes. Shannon Sharpe never failed toback his mouth up with his physical actions on field. Also. True. Unless I'm Clinton mistake, it have you seen the. I know he's A. He's a beast. His and by that, I, mean his physique and his skill level we're just unprecedented but you know I do I think running your mouth there's unprofessional Mind that you buy then back it up on the field nut so much. I mean. Go ahead. If I if I remember correctly now, remember this because there is significant events happened in my life sixteen nineteen. broncos are in the midst of the run to Super Bowl thirty two. Tonight game. In Kansas City in Kansas. City. I can remember. Watching a few days later because of recovering from surgery on. Shannon. Sharpe was literally being drug halfway across the field for most of the game by his helmet because he was talking some serious Shit Oh. Yeah. I. Remember Correctly Dr Thomas. If. If I get an incorrect Thomas Yeah. So. So pissed off the guy, he knocking, Kane insane composure in his professionalism in the game. You got what? I think. Say He lit it up. He was like Yeah. That's ten to twelve for. The Gargantuan One, twenty, one, twenty, six, and what two touchdowns. Yeah he was a month. So. All of a sudden sanders our. Love the Guy I've actually met him. Helvin individual. Love Tall. But he can copious amounts of Shit Oh. Yeah. Oh yeah that that man can back his mouth up. Oh Yeah. We have an and. He. End Let's let's break that down from an NFL perspective. So I'm a personnel manager. Okay and I have Shannon Sharpe as a free agent. His name comes across the wire I go holy Fuck Ball sharps available, and I already know that a he's allowed mouth be he likes to talk shit and sees extremely opinionated man but D-. The Guy Backs should have on the field I picked up the phone. I pick up the phone and say Hello Mr Shannon. Trump's lawyer her agent. This is me at the I would like to pay your your plant, a lot of money obscene amount of money to come help us when football game sets. Ended up with the. Exactly for whatever he was with the Ravens what three years. Say but he wanted them for four super bowl with their to. The argument that Colin Kaepernick doesn't have a job because Hashtag grace is complete an utter bullshit. Bullshit and the the fact that Roger Goodell has bought into this Shit Hook Line and sinker is even worse. Okay. You would think that that to be the commissioner of of a National League or National Professional Sports League that race in what eight to ten billion dollars. A year in gross revenue. You have. You'd have to have an IQ above your shoe size. Goodell even that these people that that they're they're professing to support. Social Justice. Wise. He realized that the vast majority of them do not watch the Games couldn't tell you five players in the league and doesn't even know couldn't name five teams lot I mean. She probably I mean. Look at some of the fan base. Did Not tell you the difference three, four, three defense. Yeah don't try to get him to describe the Tampa to. Exactly or various offensive formation. You're the simultaneous simultaneous possession roll which you and I can quote by heart understand completely. Exactly. Our guys we've got another segment coming up right after this brief break. Stay tuned. Midnight Patriot nations spartan with a shameless plug for our new gear shop shop. Dot. MIDNIGHT PATRIOTS DOT COM. T shirts, hats, hoodies, mugs, phone cases, and just about everything else in between we got you covered whether you're looking to embrace your insomnia, show your patriotism or make a liberals headaches blowed. Really, Shop Dot Midnight Patriots, Dot Com, and now back to the show. You know that's that said. I made a prediction in in midnight moment the last night moment and I want to run around wanted to run that by. Not. Only understand that the business portion of the of the game, but also the game itself. So this is going to the business portion now. One. Of the things that you and I both know is that owners very rarely. SAY WHAT THEY THINK Or say or reveal their plans in advance. Okay. I've noticed that the owners have remained. Suspiciously quiet. About the social justice campaign that's currently going on I do disagree with that. I mean like I said, I think Jerry Jones is really the only one that's actually made any sort of statement and it wasn't a very long. I ever Jones ever quiet. What that's that's my point. And say instead of instead of. Me thinks he protests too much. Me think she says nothing for more sinister Okay so I wanted to run this by this is my theory. Okay. Now we've confirmed the the the Monday night compal atrocity from last night. US. Or Susani from two nights ago that. We've confirmed that the viewership was down approximately twenty nine percent. Across the board in that double header. So if we take the two games Monday and the overall ratings of of being down for Sunday you're talking an average of of a twenty percent downer. It's one fifth of the audience of the television audience told the NFL the PISS off. Okay. Considering the the significant financial investment ESPN has for for the right. To. Monday night football. Let's just let's just call that loss unsustainable. Okay. So I am going to ask you to engage your owner brain for just a minute. Okay. So We're GONNA fast forward to the week after the Super Bowl's okay where things are notably notably quite Rosalie quiet. The coaching carousel began and things like that since. Day. Except that, there's going to be a rumor. Going to be a rumor. That the NFL that the owners are considering locking out the players because they want to renegotiate the contracts. And this will come as a surprise to dumb asses in the AT ESPN released. They're going to feign surprise. Okay. And we're going to start hearing things like while the coaches are not gonNa make anymore are putting hiring decisions are the owners are going to. Put a hiring decisions on pause for just We're going to review a few things and Blah Blah Blah. While then we're going to get to Russia's started free agency. And we'RE GONNA. Find out and it's probably going to be one of the one of the What's The guy's name? Remember his name. One of the reporters Schefter Adam schefter because he always breaks up he's. Probably. GonNa be schefter becomes. We have confirmed reports, the owners who are going to lock out the players affected nine am tomorrow or whatever. Okay. Now what's going to end up happening is this. The overall I would say, the overall revenue is going to decline somewhere in the area of twenty percent across the before the Lee across the. Across the season. Okay. Now again does just a prediction it might be higher. I hope it's higher until they stop dish this personally but. This is what's going to happen. You're going to get a massive ratings ratings cut. Even in the Super Bowl. Which means revenue is going to be down roughly thirty percents. Okay. What they're gonNA say is this is an unprecedented drop in revenue and the the losses are unsustainable. They're going to have to renegotiate the contracts. The players are GONNA have to take less money and this time the the ownership is going to be able to show concrete. The because of the drop in television revenue in Jersey sales and everything else. That they're going to have to renegotiate the contract. They're going to vote on removing Goodell as the commission. You're actually they're gonNA, they're gonNA end up forcing him out but the way it's GonNa play out this players are to get locked out. There's going to be a review of the deal of the of the current Labor Labor Agreement. The new agreement is GONNA. Have a significantly lower. Revenue Pool total that that the players are going to get. And they're going to have conduct they're going to have enhanced conduct policy which include the jewel stand for the national anthem. You will not hiding locker room for it. And you're going to we're going to not endorse anyone as far as any sort of political failure, your ideology on the field, and if you do not only will your contract be terminated but you'll be you'll be on the breadline by your suspended for a year. Now maybe the suspended for year won't come to pass but. Engage your own our brain for just a second and then look at the strike years that came up and you tell me how how how. Or how far I'll fight on that. Will. Allow me to. Dive into this plan I mean. Here we go. I am an owner of a NFL team. Meaning I have had to. Put Out. Let's use an arbitrary figure five hundred million dollars cash right upfront. Chooses five hundred. Half a billion. Cool. I'm. Glad. Yeah. Five hundred million dollars up front in order to gain my team have somewhere to play. The voted on passed and approved by the NFL. As either an expansion team whatever then. To, Cherry pick the other teams around here so I can build my team. In hopes that a I get a return on investment. That said if I'm going to dump five, hundred, million dollars out. A team equipment place play contracts that are stretched for X. number of years. This mice guaranteed this much at a signing bonus this much. Not. including the money paid to the team from the NFL for reaching a wildcard round, a divisional round championship round, and ultimately the Super Bowl. There are incentives paid to the teams by the NFL for attaining postseason plum. Yeah So that said with everything that goes on here. Currently we're martyring. Convicted felons we are. Using the NFL. As a soapbox. As an owner. would. Say? Okay. I can understand. The Point I understand where you're coming from I understand yes. Shit doesn't like this doesn't need to happen. It does there's nothing I can physically do about it personally except point out to you that you're not them. You are a multimillionaire more working your way to that point because of your talent, your skill and your ability play the game price. You as a athlete. well-fed well trained. Best shape, your ever loving life you have a house bigger than anything you've ever grew up in, you've got cars for days all these other things but. You need to remember that you are entertainer You're not a politician. So, that said. When to go into your point? After the Super Bowl. Until they actually have one right. That two weeks later, when everything's died down in the in the winter sprayed is over and losers or duck griping and the coaches players have made their way to their respective all. Wherever. That may be they're probably their private castles. Yes don't don't live in a castle guarded by you know dogs bigger than. Most people's. Cars. Were we will probably see as you said. Well you know revenue was down. Because of viewership is down across the board anywhere between currently twenty twenty, two percent to encroaching upon thirty percent. For Games you know TV, rights merchandise sales are going to be down. People are actively boycotting across those media and they're actually making their voice known by not watching. All of a sudden if we were to take thirty two current teams. And we look at. All the owners in this how much money they have? Now if we were to take thirty percent of total investment apart. As a conglomerate figure. We're talking a loss of probably and I would strong. Guess. Somewhere in the neighborhood of anywhere between two and two point, five, billion dollars while even go you want all you can go one better I think since the economy has basically picked up I mean you gotta remember the day to ten billion was during the Obama Konami which was one of the worst economies history. Okay. So that said you gotta figure that now it's probably going to be between ten and twelve. So if you have a twenty percent revenue law, if you have a almost thirty percent, you're talking about three billion dollars. That's a three billion dollar loss. So even if even if you spread that across thirty two teams, you're talking about what? Three hundred, million dollar loss per franchised. and. So and a lot of the smaller market. Good. So again, as an owner with Joan, arbitrary figure of five, hundred, million dollars starting I just lost seventy five percent of your or yeah of my revenue that I put into have an NFL team. Well, exactly. Well Number One and number two what anybody thinks that now? Okay. We all understand the cats at the revenue sharing For Those of us that are initiated, understand understand the the the reason for revenue. Okay. That's that's a given. Okay. Even still a thirty percent cut to that revenue devastates small-market teams devastate. Okay that's. Cleveland Cleveland Cambe that's Detroit. Well, I think Detroit is a bit bigger, but I catch meaning. into. Jacksonville. Flow? Buffalo Alright. That unders. Anyway. They're too big but no I hear you here's here's here's the thing the smaller market teams are going to move may if this continues maybe on the verge of bankruptcy and and if you really don't think that the NFL owners will lock out the players to avoid that. I just think everybody's so naive that they shouldn't even be a football fan you can. Football I in my opinion, these played the players and Adele are cutting the owners throats and I don't think the owners appreciate it number one and number two I. Think the owners are more in touch with their demographic their fan base style people want to believe i. don't say that they like their fan base because obviously as the executive class billionaires general ended the tend to hate working people or at least have a disdain for them. Okay. But the point being is that it's unsustainable model for them to go forward to continue this crap. Of K, it's it's absolutely ludicrous. So I think about beat that horse to death did you have anything to add on just on that? Final thought regarding that as an owner is a businessman I yeah exactly. Exactly. His businesses to? Yes he owns the team but as a business owner, you're always looking to. CRUISER BOTTLE BLONDE Increase but also you know they've got, they've got a commitment. You know what I mean I mean the bottom line is there are associated with raising revenue to pay Patrick mahomes half a billion dollars over the next. Seven years. Of. The point the point is this is that there are costs associated developing that revenue and win the players behavior or when when the when the the players union in the League encourages behavior that is deleterious to to that mission. Then what are the owners supposed to do? Gordon exactly. They locked the doors take resigning before we open this and then players you're GONNA WE'RE GONNA have to do a big restructure here. Sorry. You know this is this is not you? Not You know you're not this side of the world you guys are on the upper echelon. Of money you have succeeded in. On yourself up by your bootstrap for lack of terminology, you have made it playing a game that you love passion for three enforce your point duty not only are they a privileged class? Okay. Let I verified this I verify this last night. I made a statement that that.

Yes. They working person would take ten eleven years to make. They're making six months show and this is not this is not an insult. I'm only going to use the label for for effect. Hacks in the NFL make ten times. The average working family does and they dare fucking lecture us about what our values should be faulk them. Big F what. Exactly. With a with capitalize all letters with with several exclamation points at the end. So that said I. Underlined and and I tell us is never. That's that said, I I wanNA give credit where it's due also understand that you know. What did I just go off on the NFL to you know to to to the end up with surprise we'll tell you why because You know even in the worst of situations, even even in the darkest night, there are rays of sunshine out gather are rays of light and I want to heap praise on two particular players, and these are the only two players. That I'm aware of have done this if any of you out there. Needed to midnight Patriot nation are aware of more please let us know. So we can give them their just desserts in their props. I want to give particular a credit to a hundred in the way of of the of the Pittsburgh steelers. Mr Villanueva is a former army ranger That said he made a big splash stirred shit storm by doing the right thing. I'm not going to get into the to the criminal that that the that the steelers. We're trying to honor Norma GonNa try to justify it didn't happen there but. Mr Vienna wave. Did something very classy He caped over the criminals name and he chose to honor sergeant first class all when cash. Now I believe I'm saying that correctly cut me some slack by brute if I if I. A brutalized his name that is not the intention. To say how I believe it's spelled. But sergeant first, class all, when. Cash. who was killed in Afghanistan? And I I, WANNA. I WANNA take. The chance to really You know he preys on on Mr Villain away for for going against the grain and for honoring in a true fallen hero on instead of instead of the criminal. So. Well on on that. The next one and probably the biggest honors of the latest give to the Jaguars tight tyler effort. I think I'm saying his name correctly also I don't think it's effort at the. But again, please forgive me if I've Jaguars fans if wrecked his name to. That being said that were I for also You know went against the grain he chose to honor the life of David Dorn David Dorn for those of you that that don't know was retired police officer. I believe it was Saint Louis. He. police chief Sir about that. He was retired police chief and he. was acting on behalf of a friend to go and check is Friends Pawn Shop. And he was gunned down he was killed Doing doing that by a felon in possession of firearm each shot this this legitimate euro From behind in the back of the head, which was incredibly cowardly act. ADORNS widow. was featured at the Republican National Convention. So those be the she told the heart wrenching story and As much as I am I gotTa tell you broaden orphee side, but he loved me misty. I was just her story about David's life was very touching and the impact on her family were simply crush. So I wanNA other drove I drove home the point. Your choice exact life exactly as what makes you? Exactly you know people people come from from bad situations and rise to great heights in as far as I know. This is the only country in the world that that can happen. Where you can make what you want of your own life. Okay. The biggest prison that we have in this country, the prison in our own minds. So A. Big Praise to do Mr Bean away and Mr for will done. I still have the continue my. My boycott because of my standards but you gentlemen have shown that there is a a ray of light in darkness. So Phoenix where you have anything to add or have we beat this to death. By by Pres for. There are people in the NFL that are serving of. Respect for me for one. Not because of their wallet or their house or their cars. But they chose stand for the national anthem. As. SOMEONE WHO Leaves in their country. Leaves in the American dream all though little hard to attain sometimes. The anthem regardless of anybody's political stance. The gentleman across the nation. And the NFL NBA MLB. I stand with you guys choose to stand in honour your country. That is. The way it is your will said. Anybody else wants that is your choice. I. Respect your choice I don't like it but I do respect it. But I stand with the gentleman who chooses stanton honor the country, the greatest country on this earth. Gives them every opportunity to excel in anything that they choose to? Like professional football or professional athletics exactly. I think it. I think it's worth mentioning here. I know we said we beat the source of, but I wanNA bring up another topic to. Weird Midnight Patriots all of us. May disagree with with what someone says, but we would fight to our desk to protect their their right to say those words. That being said I think one of the other things that the public is piss pot tired of is the privileged wealthy assholes. Being able to have different sets of rules at their workplace than we do. In the Corporate World in William and most smaller companies you do not have. You do not have freedom of speech. Okay. You will be shown the door if you bring up politics religion, etc etc. Okay. With social justice causes or otherwise. They can show you the door. Okay and I don't think I don't think it's Ok these. Use Their their platform on the field or in any way while a uniform to promote their agenda. Okay. Now, I think you and I would agree with this if the NFL Players Association wants to get together and host either a live event or televised event. when they are not playing and they're out of uniform. And they want to tackle these issues donate money to causes give away money whatever I think that would be a perfectly acceptable display. That's fine. Okay. But I think the reason they don't is they know that the cause is a loser. Okay. They're not willing to risk their own money you know to they're not willing to put their money with their mouths are in order to have their protests but but you know somehow everybody else should just shut up and and honor was they're trying to do and I think that that is excellent. You know policy at its finest end. America's PISS POT tired of turning channel I. think that's a big factor as well. As your thoughts unfortunately mean here to. Drive your point. I could see. Getting together having one big party fundraiser l. have running toe board. Hey, you know we're raising all this money great or even several. Yeah Go. But the reason but the reason they're doing it on television is because they can reach a mass audience all at once. But. They haven't had. They had the NFL network. If. The shows a winner, they could sell it to their to their allies in the media. WHO's to say ESPN would cover it. You know for God's sake ESPN has the SP one of the worst ward Joe's ever. Okay and if they want to go up to that into a social justice show fine. Go right ahead or create when like it again. Fine. Or if you know even Amazon or Netflix wants to pick up something about you know the S J W 'cause in the NFL an interview players follow players around their charitable work while they advance these causes grace go ahead I mean I think what they'll find his a there's no interest in be nobody cares they approach it that way that we far less backlash in their their incomes would be far safer than if they continue down this path. the ratings would actually come back to a more normal. That's where I'm talking about I. Mean there are only cutting their own throats by doing it the way they're doing it that that's all I have to say. So that's a wrap for this midnight.

These two interstate teams meeting for the one hundred ninety time all time Michigan leaves the head to head series with one hundred six wins. Michigan state though, one both the head to head meetings. This season February twenty fourth in Ann Arbor, seventy seven to seventy and then eight days ago in east Lansing, Michigan state one again, seventy five sixty three not only winning the game but waiting the big ten regular season title, this rivalry Michigan. Michigan state, great not only in football. But in basketball to Michigan head coach John beeline says could be the best rivalry in all sports. I think he's far as anybody's Michigan. Michigan state fan. It is that it's not as sexy as the Duke North Carolina game. We're we we may have NBA players here. Hollywood star. Hours or whatever. That's okay, show me another place where they got two people in the state. They've been to four final fours in the last ten years. We have four championships. They got more than that in the last ten years. Right. You got gray rivalries everywhere. But not ones that are playing this deep Marsh, not not the ones that say, they they sweep us. We sweep them. We split day. Sweep bus damn they split. It's been a great particularly the last nine years we had to get our thing going a little bit. The first few years were good to us. But after that, we shot we got we got two great programs. It's not a great fair states. Great for college basketball to clean programs. We both have had injuries we still maintain. Our Billy to be good at the postseason. Right. We both have guys go pro allot, we still maintain that. You get good people. You get great support for your administration in these two states and these two universities, and we get great fans and alums Michigan state Spartans twenty seven and six overall. They were the co champions of the big tender in the regular season Tom Izzo steam, the number one seat in. In this big ten tournament after buys in the opening two rounds? Michigan state beat Ohio State in the quarterfinals seventy seven seventy yesterday in the semis. Michigan state with the route over Wisconsin, sixty seventy to fifty five Michigan state led by big ten player of the year. Caches Winston third in the nation in assists. He averages nineteen points per game ends the only player in the country, averaging eighteen points, seven assists and shooting forty percent from three point range. Big man, Nick ward is back and healthy. But still hasn't gotten his legs underneath them in playing just two games since returning from a broken hand Tillman Matt mcquade, they combined for nineteen points per game while six seven Ford Kenny joins is starting to turn heads as a senior as now averaging eight and a half points and nine rebounds per game head coach Tom Izzo, Ken. He's probably been the guy. That's changed. Our teamed throughout the last two and a half months. You know, he is one of our best defenders he is our best rebounder, he is her mom, maybe our best condition guy, and he is really figure. Out how shoot the ball. And does it. With a high percentage and Kenny deserves a lot more than I probably given them. But I think KENNY'S putting himself in a position where there's gonna be some basketball for Kenny after college Michigan state their deep. They're talented, and they know how to win especially in the postseason. They're going to be a tough match up. Again, the third time around for John beeline talking about a team that has just played great basketball all year long played a very demanding schedule the injuries, certainly I feel bad for the the two injuries that they've had the fact is they're playing at a high level rate now like they had they had no injuries. And so you got to you understand you get one of the hall of fame. Coach is incredible at his team's execution on offense and defense, and we haven't played well against them. And that's because they played so well against us. So Bama third time we go we're going to go after the championship. Again, you only get so many chances to win a championship a chance to do it. Right now, we're going to every weekend to win this championship. Because we didn't get the last one Michigan wolverines twenty eight and five over all the number three seed in this big ten tournament. John team led by freshman Ignace bras Davis and his fifteen points per game. The big ten freshman of the year shoot. Forty six percent from the floor. Forty two percent from beyond the arc Jordan pool. Exhibitor Simpson part of Michigan's three guard backward. They combined for twenty one points and seven assists per game. Senior Charles Matthews is healthy and averaging twelve and a half points per game in the middle. John Taskey averaging ten points and seven rebounds per game. This Michigan wolverines team balance an offense and really tough on deepens top three in the country. This is a signature John beeline coached team. I think it's it's pretty consistent with the teams. We've always had low turnovers right team. A lot of skilled guys it will share the ball. We've had over twenty assists. The last two games guys will share the ball a lot of shooters skilled guys a big a big center who. Shoot a little bit. And it just that's that's the identity of many of our place now, and we've got really good. If you compare it to other teams, you all the way back to Darius Morris to Trey Burke, the Derrick Walton to save your Simpson. Great point guards make very good teams. Michigan and Michigan state two teams familiar plan on this stage, the Spartans there's is their seventh appearance in the big ten championship game going for their sixth title while Michigan is going for their third straight big ten tournament title and come in having won ten in a row in tournament. Play coach beeline says there's just something about the postseason and his team's only I could say that must be something. We're doing all year long. It might be mid major mentality way. Before that, you know, how you play the season doesn't mean anything you've got to win your tournament. But I wish that there's nothing intentional here. We're just trying to get better every day. Right. And then I think if you go into tournaments, and you're usually a team that doesn't beat itself during the. Season. Maybe add some success then but this is not intentional. It's just it's just happens. Sometimes should be a good one. It's the battle of Michigan between the Spartans in the wolverines when we come back. We'll get you. Updated on all the games around the conference tournaments that are wrapping up in college basketball in this election Sunday. It's Michigan state and Michigan tip off is coming up shortly.

"How long did it last? Well, it depends on on on what you mean by lasting. The the Spartans are rather successful from about seven fifty down to three twenty three sixty two excuse me BC and actually a little before. That say three seventy one BC and the foundation that emerges that allows them to be such a force is their conquest of Messinia. So they have all this land. And they have all of these labors which allows them to articulate their way of life and to be a military power. You deprive them of Messinia, which is what the thieves under apartment on. This did in the second quarter of the fourth century BC. You deprive them of Messinia? And in the process, you are undermining their capacity to put an army of any size into the field. And they never really come back after three seventy one if you mean, by their way of life in Lakonia, and as a kind of backwater something like Disneyland it survives in the later Roman empire. So there's a strong tradition there. There are lots in Lakonia, and there are small number of Sparty. It's many many smaller than there had been in the fifth century, and they continue to lead a life of leisure dedicated to hunting in gymnastics and so forth, but they're completely inconsequential. And one of the reasons that that Sparta the the the Sparta the Hellenistic period and the Roman period is not destroyed is why bother their inconsequential. It's a kind of relic of an earlier age. But the real thing is over when apartment on this freeze Messinia, and it is confirmed at the battle of manzanilla in three sixty two when the Spartans try to make a comeback, and they fight the battle to to a stalemate. So nothing changes Messinia remains independent Arcadia, which had is to the north of spa. Had been organized into a league by palm anonymous and a Sidley city established to the north west of Sparta sort of between an an area to the north of Sparta and Messinia between Sparta and miss any. In other words to the north amount Tiga toss at a place ball megalopolis the big city that remains to. So it's pretty much done for the Spartans in three seventy one and their attempt attempted a comeback in three sixty two fails. So was about a four hundred year wrong. Yeah. Which is pretty good. It's pretty good. When we haven't made it four hundred years yet to have him in. Now, we've got a quite a while to get to that point somebody we throughout this conversation you've been talking about, and I've kind of slipped into it to where we praise and we feel like we have the most in common with Athens. But what's interesting, and you mentioned this in your book is that Sparta figures..

"Heart kicking at the forty five yard line. We should end up with good field position. Not to start with our defensive unit. When they go on the field hard, averaging fifty one seven on the year. Good snap kicks it away. Low line drive spiral. It will go into the end zone on the fly. And Michigan state will take over first and ten from their twenty five yard punt, no return for the Spartans. A little disappointing in the punt there. I think he little excited and just hit a line drive there that went into the end zone Michigan defensively. Let's give you the starting. Look, it'll be pretty pain chased one of it's probably at the outside defenseman, Monet and Salomon or Marshall inside linebackers and Ross Devin Bush in the middle for visual Gill on the outside corners Birkdale, David long safeties Terry kennel, Josh mccown, Mattel us and the viper will be Kelly. Hudson Spartans come out with a working at quarterback and LJ Scott is they're running back. This is his first game since game number two. And he gets the call tries left guard and he gets nowhere win of it stops him a gain of maybe one yard. It'll be second down. LJ? Scott weren't sure whether we were going to see him. He played two games hasn't played since this is his first Kerry sits there second game that came back for his fifth year hoping to. Rekindle a little bit of the magic he had as a sophomore as a junior. He was a little bit of a turnover machine. So we'll see if other sequence that ball out if he hasn't fixed that issue this year is at thirty carries for three yards. Second down nine Spartan for working. Now in the shotgun. Stewart comes and sets it a wing back to throw a working throws in the flat. That's LJ Scott at the thirty to thirty five.

Well executed play by Michigan state to free up LJ Scott in the flat. Fifteen yards on the pass completion kennel MAC Scott out of bounds. But it was. Devin Bush who slow to get up couldn't see whether there was any real contact. He just missed the tackle on Scott. And Kenneth fell down on his face.

"Jose State Spartans coach. How are you? I'm doing great. How you doing up your twelve thirty tomorrow? At Levi stadium. It is San Jose State Spartans versus army, which to me is has got to be awesome for a coach. Oh, it's going to be amazing being in that venue. You know, just for our players and our fans, you know, we can't wait to play. And obviously we have a big time opponent with army coming in. And they'll have a great crowd with them. And it's just going to be an awesome day for football. How's it been for this game? Because they're different than most teams. They're like navien run the triple option, and that's a different piece to go up against house. Prepping for this isn't good kids. I worked really hard. You know, I think our defensive staff has done a nice job preparing for people all season. Obviously, this one is a whole different animal just their level of execution. Just trying to get everybody with there is in the right place and sit and gas correctly, it's a real challenge. The only question I have is is anyone gonna top the Oklahoma linebacker that twenty eight tackles. I mean that was that's absurd. What he did the other day against against army. You know to me, I, you know, I hope not. More people. I hope we're getting more people to the ball in that. Obviously just tells you how good army is. And how hard they are to defend when they can go into Norman, Oklahoma and take that team to overtime. This is so weird because it's high school like get that whole thing. But I just remember playing DB in highschool against triple option teams. And it was like, oh, this is easy this easy. But then you get like the coach paranoid. They might sneak one over the top like this. This is a team that will sneak one over the top on you here. And there they how do you keep your DVD's? I've always wondered especially at the at your guys is pace where it starts to speed up quite a bit. How do you keep your DVD's locked in on on doing their assignment doing their job? And and making sure they don't rest in and get beat deep receiver. That's the greatest challenge to me of the triple option right is because you have to be so assignment sound and you have to because option football's all based on the offense getting plus one on the defense. Right. So. Your safeties in your secondary has to be tied into the run game. And that's where they're I disappointed out to be so good because the fear of getting one thrown over the top or the threat of it. Especially with this quarterback from army. He can really swing it. And you'll lots of times these triple option teams don't have a great thrower. But this throw it. I mean that makes it even better because I mean, this is a good team. They've beaten Hawaii they took Oklahoma is just to basically they had him on the ropes the whole game. In Norman, the challenge ahead for you guys. Coming into this game is what the biggest thing is just finding a way to play good football. From the start of the game. We haven't done that yet this year, you know, even last week we put together a magical third quarter where we were firing on in all three phases. Offense defense special teams, but we need to do that at the start of the game. And we and especially against this group because you know, they're they're averaging possession is forty minutes per game. Due to the game. They have the ball. So you have to be really efficient offensively, right? You have to make the most of the chance to do you get to try and hopefully get a turnover Steeler possession not way. So it presents a whole different kind of challenges. Just because they're Tyler possession is so significant. What what did it say about your team last week? Because for me, you come off just an absolutely gut wrenching loss against Hawaii in five overtimes. Guys, come out, or you know, Colorado state comes out scores. Twenty eight unanswered first-half points, and you guys put it to them in the third quarter to see them respond, your San Jose State Spartans team respond to that adversity. And obviously the Ken coming up short. But that research has to be so big for, you know, I think so because I think that you were you're seeing us make some progress. Right. And you're. You know, being football games and sustain for longer, and you know, that part of it especially going into halftime down twenty eight. You know, some of our senior spoke to the team Bryson bridges kind of took control that moment. No, offense and defense and brought them all together. And. We kinda we put together a plan of what we had to do the next few possessions. And it went that way. And so I think there definitely is progress. I think how they feel about themselves. Hey, we can do this. Now, we gotta finish it. Right. That's the big thing. Now, we gotta finish it. I mean, how's that message been this week because they obviously responded, and sometimes you you could say the exact perfect thing is a coach. But it just they can't execute it. And you have a guy, you know, light Bryson bridges bring up the team and do that whole thing and they respond. So how do you build off that? How do you get them to understand that like look is it by watching film in Saint see you guys did it or is it you gotta pull back even more. And just be like, look, the more and more. We do our jobs the easier. This will be for ourselves. Yeah. I think it's both those things right. You gotta show themselves. Like what wasn't right and what we need to fix? Then. You gotta show them the good stuff. And like, hey, this is where we're actually shooting in all three phases for really playing really good football for this stretch here. And then this is where we lost our momentum. And this is where we have to make a standard taken back. But you know, in terms of Bryce and talk to the team, or assistant coaches are me, you know, we're always telling the team it's up to them. This is their football team. They're the ones out between the white lines. They're the ones that have to hold each other accountable and push each other in the moment and be there for each other in the mall. It's so, you know, the message I had halftime of the Colorado state game. I said in that first half it just didn't look like a team that's playing for each other. That has to change and to their credit when they came out in the third change that voice you here right now is head coach of the San Jose State Spartans football team. Brent Brennan kind enough to join us. Look losing Bailey gay. There was it was a big blow to you guys because he had absolutely been performing great. But on the flip side, you guys got back Tyler Nevins, your your number one running back for me. You know that was my question two weeks ago to use like is he is he coming back. I think that he is a game changer. He is someone that you build off of in that makes your team even more complete in in getting him back. How big was that last week? It was awesome. And he's such a great kid serious kid. And I think because he's so mature, and he carries himself with kind of this, you know, quiet confidence. Sometimes people think he's you know, junior senior but father's a true sophomore. And there's a lot of learning going on with it. There's a lot of good football left with him. So. It's exciting to see him be back, and what you can contribute as he gets a little more comfortable on the offensive side. What are you looking for, you know, against this army defense, a defense is really active by super sound? They got a couple of playmakers in their secondary. They've got a strong safety nickel outside linebacker hybrid like six to two hundred twenty pounds. You know, he rushes a passer in sachse quarterback covers wide receiver downfield. He's a great tackler. It's gonna be really fun to watch. I think you know. That's you know, like, we mentioned it earlier just making the most of the chances. Most teams are getting about fifty plays a game. That's the craziest thing to think about like just last week on that same field. You're the Niners run almost ninety plays and still get a loss because they couldn't hold onto the ball in against a team like army. I mean, they they put the ball on the ground quite a bit. It's just the amount of times. Do they lose it or not, you know, I feel like I is that something that you guys have harped on this week. Or is it more just? Let's make the sound tackles do your do your job more than anything. It all starts with that. But you know, I think the harder we play them the more effort. You know, you know, our whole thing without effort is hundred hundred hundred miles an hour hundred percent of the time it we can play with that kind of effort. I think those opportunities come there. You know? I think you end up getting chances to get on a loose ball. If we've got eleven guys to the football. And you know, we're Gangtok lean and and making plays out where I think it does create some more opportunities to just swing that turnover battle in our favor. I wanna know like from your perspective just like kind of away from football. But like the the coaching side, you place a service school in army. And I just remember a couple of years. Go navy come into to Spartan stadium. And the first time they did they're rolling down the ramp. And they got the American flags in Mike. This is awesome. Like, what does it mean for you? When you go when you coach up against one of these teams an army and air force a navy. I think it's just really special. You know, we've talked about a lot with our team this week. We just have so much respect for them. Because all those kids wearing that army uniform. They've made a whole different decision than the kids. They go here or anywhere else. Have you know, they they basically said, you know, we're gonna defend your rights to play football and to go to college, and to do whatever, you know, people like to do here in America. And when they're done playing football. They're going to pick up a rifle and go out ghanistan or go to a bunch of really hard places and protect our country. And and do the hard work had takes two to protect our freedom. So we just have so much respect for them. And so I I agree with you. I think it is emotional when you play these teams anyone with any sense of patriotism just had this incredible respect for them. So the choice they've made and what they do for us. No doubt. No doubt. It's it's weird when I play for the nationals, and it was like one of the first games that we played at home that you're in two thousand fourteen one of the army general's was out there, and he saw just how we were in line for the national anthem, and you know, it was kind of very soft and very. Not organized, right? And just to hear what his side of it was from that day on we we listened, and we definitely adjusted. I mean, you ever go to stand there and just go. Wow. Look at them across the way, just in that intimidate, which going that's incredible. Because you see, you know, the actual pride behind when it's national anthem and an army or navy or air force is out there. No doubt. No doubt. It's a total different commitment in total different sense of pride. They have because of the choice they made and what they're doing every day is all about, you know, protecting our country. And I think that's that's an awesome thing. An awesome part of this game mall. I think that's why we'll have a bunch of fanfare to to show that respect and to show that appreciation for these young men that have made the choice to go to West Point. No, I think it's gonna be awesome. I'm going to be out there twelve thirty at Levi stadium, San Jose State versus army coach thanks so much for coming on and spends few minutes spanning a few minutes with us.

The pass was illegally touched by number sixty one of the offense that penalty has declined and brings up four thousand. Okay. So cats will. Force Michigan state into a fourth down situation. With three fifteen to go. As the Spartans. They need to push. They need to keep the drive alive and keep their hopes alive. But I remember the cat stopped Michigan on a fourth and one week ago data and one for their own eleven three fifteen to go north western leading by three twenty two to nineteen. Rowdy. Backers Hayward Baxter offset Rosenthal is the fullback. And the work he under center hands it off Hayward. Hayward stacked up didn't get their hold on fourth down at our cats takeover with three Oneida going trae Hartwich who had to leave the game earlier with an injury comes up with the biggest stop of the day for the Wildcats stopping Michigan state on fourth and one what a stand by this. Northwestern defense an entire front seven was right on the line of scrimmage. They did not give an inch. They founded the running back up there. There was no room. There was no crease. There was not an institution had cats. Got a closest thing out too. Big MRs for safety's now can they finish it off right here. Now, I down at the eleven three oh nine to go. At the Michigan state eleven yard line all Roddick that green in motion. Here's the snap to Thorson. Solomon tries to middle. Down inside the seven timeout Spartans with three oh, three left Hetty willa kiss. Michigan state their second. Second time out Ted. I think you look at the last two Michigan state possessions. And if you could play better defense than northwestern has played look at the last one where they had the Tf L. They had the sack force Michigan state into a holding penalty and had this last series where they get nine yards first down. And then they stop them on three play and almost sixty three almost two safeties. It's got to drive the defensive coaches crazy. I mean, they have played so well the defense in these final mentioned it thirty twenty five and they hold them. And then here again, they get their offense the ball on the ten yard line. Second down at six for the Wildcats at the seven key is one time out left for Michigan. He can only stop the clock. One more time at the second in six four yards three. Oh, three on the clock. Second down at six for the Wildcats. The Michigan state seven cats lead twenty two nineteen. Staffed hips. Inside the five reaching the one yard line down inside the one to fifty eight to go timeout. You got I doubt it's going to be. I doubt a goal to go. I think it's a first down is not. Yes, I out at goal. They say third down. I the scoreboard. I think he might be just short great. Zell down its third in less than one and our time out of sick gold. The Spartans that's their last time out. Well, let's see. It is third down and inches for the Wildcats. There is a charge timeout for Michigan state their third and final time out of the half. That will be a thirty second timeout timer. Please reset the game clock for two fifty eight to five eight to fifty remaining to five eight excuse me. What a what a great zone read by Clayton Thorson there on the inside he handed off to psalm involve who makes a also a terrific read, cutting it inside his right guard in his center heads, Rick great north and south almost gets it in. But with that there. Here's the clincher. They burned their last and final timeout. So the game now is in the hands of the tasks they're gonna pound this thing over they got a couple of tries to get it done..
