No, I understand that Vanderbilt is a private school, but they're still getting government money. So why are we spending money on this garbage? Who cares? All we need to know is the best person for the job. That's it. The lecture states that the findings depict how black Latin and Asian QT's, is that on what's acute. Oh, QT is queer transgender. That's what they're calling it now. Anyway, the findings depict how black Latin and Asian QT students narratives of experience reflect forms of intersectionality or instances of oppression and resistance at intersecting systems of holy what the crap is this garbage.

Is the Transfer Portal Good for College Football
"Coach, do you think it's going to, I worried, and I said to my colleagues, my interlocutors, they're off the record. I'm not going to tell you they are that places like Ohio State have an advantage.

And unfortunately, I think there's still a lot of about education, but the stories I'm hearing from, excuse me, colleagues, is that a lot of this is based upon the highest bidder.

And Mr Warren Rusted. Welcome to the program. What a pleasure. Thank you. Thank you so much. I'm really delighted to join you today, but I'm exhausted by what you just said. I should be really tired. I know. I was thinking the same thing. Oh, my God. This man has done so much. And I left off the part that you were involved in the President Ford administration. But anyway, love me. Let's go back to You want us to think of this word clarity. And explain to us Is it that we're lacking? Clarity that we're not taught about clarity? Why is this word so pivotal for you in the work that you do? I think it's the foundational element of being able to understand where we're going and how to get there and I first saw it with my dad. I was born on poor on an isolated farm in Minnesota near the Canadian border. I always recall my dad when I was a young man before he would start any project plowing a field shoveling manure out from the barn from the cows feeding the animals. Wherever was, he would always pause and say. How do I want to do this? How do I think about this? What is the outcome that I want, and I learned it in early age that that pausing, creating time and space to really think about what it is. We're trying to do and how we want to do it. Gives us clarity and also gives us greater success by having that clarity. So I think that as we come out of this pandemic, which we will over the next year, or so we'll we'll get vaccinated for those who want to be vaccinated will have a better Understanding of where we are. It's really critical of each one of us pause a bit to say, Okay, fresh start. What are the outcomes that I want? What's the vision I want to create for myself And can I get clarity around that and if we do, then our chances of being successful and having a good time are much better. You know, it's not just in major projects. I just want to share with you that before I went on air, we're doing a field of hearts in my neighborhood on the waterfront in snowy Boston. And it's going to be All of these beautiful sayings in the shape of hearts that are going to be posted. On this walkway that everybody goes up and down And there will be 60 plus hearts that we've all written things on. And I mean, just really fun, fabulous expressions and sayings and things. And I did it so quickly. Didn't take that time to plan out. How I was going to do this one particular sign. And I didn't think I didn't think And I spell compassion wrong. And These air, not replaceable. I didn't have an extra and I had to paint over it. Went to do it again and again. I was sidetracked, and I didn't think that I made the same mistake twice. Shame on me. And I said, Okay, this is a lesson. I am going to really and truly not do this project until I have the time to do it so that I can get it done correctly. And that was my little lesson that I had today. That's a good lesson. You know, my dad always used to say, And you've heard this thing before. If you don't do it right the first time. When will you have the time to do it again? So why not do it right The first time really think things through. I do that with every little and small thing that I do If I'm asked to chair a committee if I'm asked a coach Little League if I'm asked to do something by one of our grandchildren are Children We step back, and we say Look, you know, what do we want Accomplish here? What are we trying to achieve? What are we trying to do? For instance, For Christmas? We adopted 23 families really, really desperately needy families who had really been hit hard by the pandemic and everything else and so are our large family. Went out and bought all their clothes, all their gifts all their food, their Christmas tree there, lights there everything but we step back as a family. So what are we trying to achieve here? What do we really want to do for these families? And we had a very clear view of that. And then it was easier for us to go out and do what it was necessary to make it a great experience for those families. Yeah, I think probably Frankie. You and I are the same and that we live in a world principally because of social media, But we live in a world where people are just too busy.

We all know venture on the one of the greatest quarterbacks of all times beside the sign that $25 million Contract with Tennessee College quarterback 25 Minute our contract with Tennessee 2014 file for bankruptcy. The UT Division of Diversity and community engagement gave him a lifeline. Oh, gosh, in 2017. We're paying him $100,000 a year to work for this division of diversity and community. Engagement. Hey, miss meetings. He didn't go to events. See he didn't do what he needed to do. And they went from $100,000 a year to $50,000 a year. And then on March 1st 2019. They fired him for lack of improvement and acceptable conduct. After which he had two d wi charges against him. They fired it completely. Today. Krystal contact hired him back. He's gonna be working as a special assistant to crystal contact. Don't know the the terms of the contract, but I'm sure it's got to be 100,000 plus, so he's where he needs to be long because this is Let's just say this is a lifeline to a struggling former superstar for the University of Texas to keep him afloat, and he could work for Chris as a special assistant, and Chris can say. They go down to Houston. We got a fund raiser. Come with me. We're gonna meet a big cigar. Dallas come with me. And that's what Vince could do. Invents is good at that. I've seen Vince worker crowded some of these events and he's magical people still of it done. And hell you permit. I'm happy for venturing to get back with the university. I think the problem was fellas. He was He wasn't under the athletic department umbrella. In this job where he got fired. He is now and I think he's in a place where he needs to be where you don't have to fill out reports or go to meetings are kiss butt or do anything like that. What you're saying it is that the previous no show job that they gave him was too much responsibility. So this no show job should be one that he can he can maintain, is that basically I believe this no show job. Well, I think it's going to be show for what he's good at. Right now. I didn't look Asian of diversity and community engagement. He's working for crystal content, and Chris can say Okay, we need you here. Here here, he'll be in every football game. He will be there when you need it, And he's not. He will be under that umbrella. Perhaps a safety net for perhaps the language I use. There was a little harsh to my guy, Vince Young who got nothing but love for all right. What you did for me on January the 5th 66 60,005. I used to know the date but ended. Didn't my own brain damage? Not Yeah. We were forever identity events. Yes, port before he's going for the corner.

That was a job for Vince Young to collect six figures a year and show up to DK are seven Saturdays and go from luxury suite two luxury suite and glad handsome billionaires and be like, Hey, the checks can keep on coming. All right. Thanks, guys. Let me just say this ever tell you about the time I was at the Rose Bowl. Let me tell Again. I'd be happy to tell you again.

Go from the riches. They had to be an 8 to 5 guys. S O. That's where his problem what but also that job Whatever it was, he was supposed to be doing from 8 to 5 punching the clock and whatever, if myself or veto or even the great at clinics wanted to, you know to take on that job. They would not pay us $100,000 a year to do that job right that job because I was a Vince Young only opportunity because he's he's Vince Young and again if I'm saying this if I'm coming off his harsh I I'll put out the tip jar for you forever events. I'll put that drop something in there because, Yeah, I love you made her. Oh, I love him, too, especially assistant to the athletic director.

Coach for all got paid by the University of Texas to be, you know, a person of a voice Ah, person to go out and help raise money, So this is not uncommon, but it was. It was shocking. When Vince got fired, it was, you know, Sadly, he had the couple of teed up to D wi charges and that was, it's not good by any stretch of imagination, but now I think he's worried where he belongs. She can report to crystal content and crystal contact only And Chris can fix a scheduler. Listen, it's $100. I don't know how much it is J. I would suspect it's 100,000 Plus, but he could raise Ryan times that in 15 minutes. If that is, if that really is part of his job description, now is doing that and running around the state in making appearances. He's basically recruiting. For the billionaire donors cherish. Yeah, Yeah, uh, cautionary tale, though, that Vince Young because it is and it's It's a sad damn tail, too. On the low side made $30 million in the NFL, right? Yeah. And how do you blow that? How do you blow that? Because that's it.

And the ones we know so far Rachel Levine has been nominated is 60, Cent. Secretary for Health and Human For the Health and U. S. Department of Health and Human Services.

He will be the first out spokesperson in the department's history. Prices of former CIA and analyst and served as thieves spokesperson for the White House National Security Council during the Obama administration. Karine Jean Pierre has been named the principal deputy press secretary for the Biden Harris administration. Originally a senior campaign adviser.

He tells out quote America is progressing towards a stronger, more inclusive future. And I know women of color are a driving force in that evolution. Soon.

So we were just talking about it with Mark Jean Greco and Is that real? Like the Bears are really considering hiring Mike Singletary, as the defensive coordinator know they interviewed Michael Singletary assert defensive coordinator now. What has he done to get this gig? No. Are you sure? No, There's no way There's no no, no change in every 85 fantastic Chicago Bear player. No as a coach, though, it like if you're a Bears fan You hear this information, and Mike Singletary, interviewed for the open defensive coordinator gig. When the Bears Known, said Chuck Pagano was leaving to retire. Like, Weren't you kind of in your head like thinking of okay, who are some of the best guys out there right now? Who are some of the best coaches up incoming coaches who are guys who could take this group and return them to glory that we saw in 2018? Who are some of those guys were on the National Football League. At No point was I thinking that maybe it would be Mike Singletary. I It's creepy, hasn't been in the league in five years. He was a defensive assistant last in the NFL in 2016 for the Rams. Before that, he was the linebackers coach and special assistant to the head coach. 2011 in 2000 and 13 for the Vikings. So for three years, you didn't have a job. And he was the defensive assistant, And since then he's been the head coach at Trinity Christian Academy in Texas. It was the Memphis Express head coach for the Alliance of American Football, and then the TSL generals defensive coordinator in 2020. That's a Spring League football. A league The plays in the spring. Bring Lee Yeah. Spring League football. Yeah, sure. Yeah. So why? Look great player. Tremendous athlete. Obviously one of the best ever do it for the bank Legendary Bears player There's no question about that. That's not what we're questioning the trajectory. Is just down, right? If this was if this was AH, stock graph. This would just be going it be because you go from head coach to Special assistant to the head coach, linebackers coach to just defensive assistant To the alliance. American football, too. Air go to like a high school. To the alliance. American football to Spring League like the next step is is, you know Bill funds to Singletary, But the next is flag football. Intramurals I when I saw that story when Adam Jones reported that earlier today that he interviewed with the Chicago Bears, I thought to myself that can't be real. If it is real, aren't there other former Bears who you'd rather have them interview for this gig and talk to and I know that Was a few guys who are in town still, who are doing post game shows on TV like Alex Brown and Lance Briggs. Charles Tillman is still in the area, like Do they want to coach? Could they come in? And Roland was Singletary too? I mean, if that's the way The organization is going to go to fill this spot. Just gonna go try and find an old bear. Get a crusty old bear and just just put him in that spot. Let's try. Let's try win some football games. Because he won when he was in the uniform. I'm I think that that's a crazy story. I just thought it was something. We have to talk about this. Start the show. What's weird to me, too, is like you see some Teams like all I'll use the lines of his example. Just because I've been seeing this from the lions that they when they have finished an interview, they tweeted up. We've concluded our interview with Coach we've concluded with our GM entered our interview with blank for our position of general manager. If this was a PR move by the Bears to try to ingratiate the the meat of Chicago, the meat they wouldn't have released it like it wouldn't have been. Adam John saying Have John's is great. I'm not. This is nothing against John's. That's not how this would have been presented them. This would have been presented by the Bears. Hey, we've concluded our interviews for defensive coordinators. Here is who we've Interviewed blank, blank blank Mike Singletary, and we would have been like, okay, those air wait, wait. Hold on a minute. Who? Singletary. Eyes. Just not for me. Okay? The other thing that I saw today and it's it's happened over the last couple of days. I thought to myself, are they Are they sure on this one? If you want to talk football with us, 3123323776 is the phone number. It's blocking up. Dawn. I thought this With this hiring the Detroit Lions are hiring Dan Campbell. And I thought to myself at first or the line. Sure they got the right, Campbell. Like all call in college football season all NFL season, We heard that Matt Campbell from Iowa State was going to be a head coaching candidate in the National Football League, and the lines are hiring Dan Campbell. Who was working for the Saints as a linebackers coach or a tight ends coach in assistant to Sean Payton. He was the intern coach for the Dolphins in 2015. Wasn't he awful? Like, what are the lines doing? You know, I know that would like as a bears fan like who cares what the lines are doing, But I thought that I was like, I think they got the wrong Campbell. I think that they thought that the Campbell that was being talked about all football season was Mac and I think if you look at it, he was the assistant head coach for the Saints. They've had a lot of success both offensively and defensively. This year, he was tight ends coach for them as well. I think they they think they're getting, you know they're getting Sean Payton light, but But didn't he, like, fail pretty badly with the when he was with the Dolphins wasn't like the laughing stock of the league. Am I misremembering how that went down? Well, he was like crazy. Yeah, really top like head butting players will only time like he's a nut job, right? Yes, Exactly. Ok, alright. I'm just making sure like, are the lines. Sure they got the right camp? Good, good. That's all. I'm asking Good for the bears, Right? Yeah. I mean, there's a lot of good and NFL conversation and stuff in the news right now and This goes back to what I said yesterday. There are a lot of good head coaches out there. That is still available. Eric, the enemy table still don't have jobs. And table has said he's staying in in Buffalo, and we don't know what's gonna happen with.

Mr Grove's could speak with you again. Thanks for having me on Mary Louise. What should President Trump do now? Well, you know, um, he's already signaled that there's going to be a you know a transition of power after the inauguration day to see if you actually but yes, he's acknowledged will be a transition going Well, I don't know how much more he can do until that day, Mary Louise, you You go ahead and say that there's going to be a transition and Um, You know what he does between now and then I don't know how much can be done. I don't know if they're any last minute executive actions to be taken or if he's just going toe. Take it easy. We know one thing for sure He's not going to be on Twitter or Other social media platforms because he's been banned, so we might not. I don't know how we're going to find out what he's doing anymore because he's not on Twitter. Well, if you want to tell us what he's doing, he could walk downstairs into a press conference or he could do what you're doing and given interview, But anyway, let me ask about something specific. And thanks for having me on too. By the way, I'm glad that there are Platforms that still allow conservatives and Republicans on so I do appreciate it. We're always delighted to have conservative voices on our Erin. We're glad that you're with us. Let me ask you this. Should the president speak out? To stop the plans to demonstrate at state capitals on to stop plans of armed writers coming back to Washington bearing arms in advance of the inauguration next week. I think that would be a great help to the country if he did if he could make it crystal clear on whatever platforms are available to him, that peaceful protest is permitted. Anything beyond that. Any violence and he pushing of police and he confronting the police, and any type of violence at all, or storming government buildings is not what the Republican Party is about. It is counterproductive. It is what the Antifa and BLM writers did all summer long. We're better than that. He should send that message. So it clear warning delivered. Now you think would be helpful. Do you think it is likely? We'll have to see you know, Inauguration is ah, while away. It would be nice if everyone kind of tried to lower the temperature, But we hear of impeachment and vocation of the 25th amendment on these things. It would be best for folks here in D. C, where you and I are if the temperature gets lowered over the next 10 days and not sent to a boiling point. Speaking of looking ahead, there's Of course, a lot still up into the error is still up in the air is too what Congress may do next. You mentioned, House leaders are calling on vice president Pence to invoke the 25th amendment that would remove the president from office. On there, saying, if that doesn't go anywhere if they will vote on impeachment looks like maybe on Wednesday so far, a single article of impeachment charging the president with inciting an insurrection. What is his defense against that charge? Well, the primary defense on the merits is that if you go through his speech, of course very carefully, you see, not any type of incitement. To violence or any incitement to insurrection. Fight like help. He also said to go down to the Capitol building and peacefully unpatriotically make your voices heard that the statement and I read the entire transcript in preparation for the show. I promised short statement and the statement about fighting like hell if every politician who was in a political battle or a campaign Was going to be charged for incitement to violence or insurrection by saying fight like hell. Then you'd have a lot of people in cuffs right now. A general statement to you know, go in and fight like hell. That does not an incitement to inter insurrection. Make what about this? When it was clear that something truly awful was underway at the Capitol last Wednesday, We were getting reports members of Congress calling out telling us they were being issued gas masks they were running for their lives. The president told his supporters and I quote we love you. You're very special. The president's message when it became clear that what was going on in the capital was getting way out of hand and becoming violent could have come sooner and could have been more definitive.

And with possible indictments looming when he's no longer president a question to put to Stephen Groves who worked in the White House until June of last year as a special assistant to the president and deputy press secretary. He joins us live Mr Grove's could speak with you again. Thanks for having me on Mary Louise. What should President Trump do now? Well, you know, um, he's already signaled that there's going to be a you know a transition of power after the inauguration day, if you actually but yes, he's acknowledged will be a transition going Well, I don't know how much more he can do until that day, Mary Louise, you You go ahead and say that there's going to be a transition and you know what he does between now and then I don't know how much can be done. I don't know if they're any last minute executive actions to be taken or if he's just going toe. Take it easy. We know one thing for sure he's not going to be on Twitter or Other social media platforms because he's been banned, so we might not. I don't know how we're going to find out what he's doing anymore because he's not on Twitter. Well, if you want to tell us what he's doing, you can walk downstairs into a press conference or he could do what you're doing and given interview But it anyway, let me ask about something specific. And thanks for having me on too. By the way, I'm glad that there are Platforms that still allow conservatives and Republicans on so I do appreciate it. We're always delighted to have conservative voices on our Erin. We're glad that you're with us. Let me ask you this. Should the president speak out? To stop the plans to demonstrate at state capitals on to stop plans of armed writers coming back to Washington bearing arms in advance of the inauguration next week. I think that would be a great help to the country if he did if he can make it crystal clear. On whatever platforms are available to him. That peaceful protest is permitted anything beyond that any violence and he pushing of police. Any confronting the police and any type of violence at all. Or storming government buildings is not what the Republican Party is about. It is counterproductive. It is what the Antifa and BLM rioters did all summer long. We're better than that. He should send that message. So it clear warning delivered. Now you think would be helpful. Do you think it is likely? We'll have to see you know, Inauguration is ah, while away. It would be nice if everyone kind of tried to lower the temperature, But we hear of impeachment and vocation of the 25th amendment on these things. It would be best for folks here in D. C, where you and I are if the temperature gets lowered over the next 10 days and not sent to a boiling point. Speaking of looking ahead, there's Of course, a lot still up into the error is still up in the air is too what Congress may do next. You mentioned, House leaders are calling on vice president Pence to invoke the 25th amendment that would remove the president from office. On there, saying, if that doesn't go anywhere if they will vote on impeachment looks like maybe on Wednesday so far, a single article of impeachment charging the president with inciting an insurrection. What is his defense against that charge? Well, the primary defense on the merits is that if you go through his speech, of course very carefully, you see, not any type of incitement. To violence or any incitement to fight like help. He also said to go down to the Capitol building and peacefully and patriotic Lee, make your voices heard. The statement, and I read the entire transcript in preparation for the show. I promise you, as did statements go on the statement about fighting like hell if every politician who was in a political battle or a campaign was going to be charged for incitement to violence or insurrection by saying fight like hell And you have a lot of people in cuffs right now. A general statement to you know, go in and fight like hell that does not an incitement to enter insurrection. Make what about this When it was clear that something truly awful was underway at the Capitol last Wednesday, we were getting reports members of Congress calling out telling us they were being issued gas masks they were running for their lives. The president told his supporters and I quote we love you. You're very special. The president's message when it became clear that what was going on in the capital was getting way out of hand and becoming violent could have come sooner and could have been more definitive.

It's a perfectly OK thing to do. You can condemn the minority of people who are causing the violence and they should be condemned in the are getting charged with crimes. It's not However, you know, and an impeachable or terrible offends to say, You know the supporters who are not doing that we love you. There are a lot of people who I'm going to guess You're gonna beg to differ with that. But let me leave it there and say again how much we appreciate your coming on and fielding are questions. Thank you. I appreciate I appreciate a lot. Mary Louise. Thank you. That is former White House Press Secretary Stephen Groves. He is now at the conservative. Heritage Foundation, and I want to bring in another voice that of NPR's Mara Liasson, who was listening in along with the rest of us to that last conversation. Hey, Mara. Hi there. Hey, what jumped out at you? From what? We just heard there from Stephen clubs. Well, I think that there's going to be a debate about what the president said. He gave a very long speech. And obviously fight like hell is sometimes that can be used metaphorically. But hey, did Tell his supporters that they should try to overturn the election. That's what was happening inside the Capitol building that they went up there to encourage Republicans who weren't joining that effort to be strong, called them weak. I think there are a lot of other moments in that speech that people would take a different way. He sent out a call to law enforcement and the military to let the people protesters come up. He made up the steps of the Capitol. We don't know. But there's no doubt that many Republicans in Congress took that speech as an incitement. Let me get your take on a question that I suspect is on a lot of people's minds. What is the point of going forward with impeachment? When the president whether you think he incited an insurrection or not when he's leaving office before the Senate can possibly act and carry out a trial? Yeah, And even if the Senate did acting carry out a trial, it's unlikely very unlikely that he would be convicted and removed because that would take a two thirds vote. The House of Representatives..
