"And affiliates, North Carolina. And we are back. And the name of this book is I wouldn't do that if I were me. Jason gaye, one of the leading sports columnists in America at The Wall Street Journal. Joins us, he briefly appeared on Fox Sports television. I think you were chasing great to see you, how long were you on that show? How long was that show on? I should say. Well, how long has Jeff Saturday been coaching the cult? It's about that long, okay? It was a short run. Short run, pop up, but you know, I enjoyed it greatly. Got to work with a real legend would reach us. Well, that was what I mean, I know you're probably been asked this a thousand times. What was it like to be with Reid? When Regis Philbin can't save a show, then you're not going to get to blame. Yeah. I guess so. I mean, he's what you want. I mean, the moment you walk into a room, he is Regis Philbin. He's the only person pie I've ever seen successfully describe himself in the third person. You know, most people are talking about themselves in the third person. We think big head, but when Rita says like, hey, come see what Regis Regis is eating lunch. It was just fantastic. I couldn't have thought more highly of the guy. I've seen some of Kelly ripa's comments after her book came out about the same time yearbook. I wonder why I kept seeing her in the news. I didn't see your book in the news. Anyway, it's great to have you on. I appreciate that. I'll ask the prosaic Larry King question from 25 years ago. So what's it about? Well, look, Paul, you know, these last three years we've been going through as a society. There's been some awfully hard times of challenging time, some really miserable stuff, but also, you know, whenever you have these circumstances with the way our lives change, families, neighborhoods, communities. There's some humor. And I really wanted to mine that. This is a straightforward pure humor book. This is a gift book. I'm trying to make you laugh here. Kind of looking at how things just got turned around, totally corkscrewed over these last 72 months. And I tried to have as much fun with it as possible. And the title just don't do anything I would do. It's just a longer way of saying that. Yeah, I mean, I failed to read the subtitle, which I'm sure every publisher mayor gets nervous when the host is goes right past the subtitle. I wouldn't do that if I were me. Modern blunders and modest triumphs, but mostly blunders. I've always loved reading your column in The Wall Street Journal, but I also believe as sometime somebody who once made a rather poor living as a sports columnist, how difficult it is to be funny while you're writing. How do you do it? Well, I appreciate the suggestion that it's still funny because you know I can find you some readers and some people live in my home. I don't think I'm funny anymore, but I can only work with the tools I got, Paul, you know, I'm not the deepest thinker. I'm not somebody who's going to give you some sort of incisive take on what's happening and modern analytics, the football. But I can tell a joke here and there and you know, the thing that I love about sports and you do this as well as anybody. Whenever you have something that is not necessarily high stakes but is treated with such reverence and is treated with such seriousness as big time sports are in this country. That's a great opportunity to get in there and prick the balloon with the needle. And I really enjoy doing that because as we both know, the lot of pretentious self serious types in the world of sports, a lot of fun to have with that. And Jason, I've always found some of the funniest things you've written is when you try to get the readers to take your Alma mater at the university of Wisconsin seriously in football. We're not going to preview the guaranteed rate bowl, you know, the countdown without 13 days call, ready to go. And you know, I'm a big fan. And you do occasionally dabble, I realize right now the World Cup is center stage. But you have written some very funny articles about the sport that we mainly talk about here, and that's college football. I'll ask you a question on that right now as the arch rival Jim Harbaugh has continued to make a lot of critics look foolish. Your thoughts as we are bearing down on two weeks away from the playoffs. Well, for me, personally, as a Wisconsin badger, it's the nightmare scenario, right? The possibility we could be looking at a national championship between the buckeyes and the wolverines, I'm going to have to go back to Qatar Paul. I'm not going to be able to handle that. You know, what Harbaugh has done. We were laughing at this character, you know, three and a half years or shorter time ago than that. And he was really achieved what is the dream? A funny thing with Michigan fans is that they have gotten the fantasy. They have beaten Ohio State first in Ann Arbor now in Columbus. This whole playoff thing is kind of this aftershock. Now I know that they would like to perform well last year they didn't. I know they'd like to win a game win two games, maybe be a national champion. But I kind of feel like this is still kind of the after party for the wolverines because that game in Columbus is so essential. You mentioned the World Cup, Jason, and it seems like a year ago, but it was only two weeks ago when the United States was still active and you were covering it and so many others were as well. Give us some insight into that experience and really the fascination even now that the United States has exited, there are still just large gargantuan numbers of people in this country watching what's going on over there. Well, it's funny to be talking about this on your show because the closest analog I can find in American sport and North American sport to global soccer is college football is an incredible weekend in the SEC is a great rivalry game is Michigan versus Ohio State, Wisconsin versus Minnesota maybe. Those passionate events are what you get each and every day in a World Cup. I mean, a World Cup is just seismic in terms of its cultural importance. It's national importance. The excitement of the people who go there and you see it on the faces of the athletes when they win and when they lose, these things, these emotions that this event produces can not be fake. It's just striking. And you know, listen, this event is toxic in many ways. And the fact that we're having this event in December and Qatar makes no sense whatsoever. A lot of mistakes were made. However, when the games began and when you see what actually happens out on that pitch and I did say pitch Paul, how about that? Impressive, really, really. And I highly recommend to people if they're around on Sunday morning to catch that France, Argentina, again, because it'll be great. We're talking to Jason gay, of course, his book, I wouldn't do that if I were me. I would like to talk about that for a second because I know you the first chapter you start talking about taking your son to a NASCAR race. You bring and I think that's the art of a great column is bringing your loved ones as much as it may hurt sometimes into the conversation. But what is that like when you write about people that you live with? Well, you know this world. I mean, you have done this and fortunately my children are still young enough Paul that they don't get a vote. I suspect when they turn into teenagers, not terribly long from now.

"Thing rowing around. Oh, hit record. Hit record. A wild reale has a beard. I can not believe it. I am so sorry. Oh. Why are you apologizing? Because we're ten minutes late. I mean, it's three 30. I was gonna say, should we do our vocal exercises? Are we already warmed up? Irish wristwatch. Swiss wristwatch. Russell Westbrook wears an Irish wristwatch. Still got it. It works. Absolutely works. It's my mandibular flexibility has never been better. Yeah, I want the lizard to understand that Tony was just massaging. Truly one of the best jawlines in the history of sports television. You know I was recently since I'll open up to you and everybody. I was recently diagnosed with sleep apnea. Which, hello, is a big deal, right? In case you're wondering, this is how conversations with Tony reality tend to start. Or I guess it might just be how he starts most conversations with me. I don't know why I wake up with a headache every day. And I've had things in my life like Lyme disease, a couple times, and I was like, oh, this must be lime. It must be live. So I'm talking to my doctor. He's like, well, let me look at your, you know, that punching bag that's in the back of your throat. Oula, or something of that nature. Oh yeah, I should know this. Yeah, yeah, you know, the punchy bed and all those, this is just a ridiculous story I don't know why I opened I opened with sleep apnea. So a long story short. I don't breathe so well. And I'm wearing this device now. It's like a retainer at night. And it's supposed to give you a better jawline. And I'm like, yes, all right. I taped my mouth when I sleep. I should have lived with that. I feel like you, I mean, Tony, you literally medically having to mute yourself while asleep is a bit on the nose. It's a bit on the uvula for this podcast. It's on the mouth though. It's on the lips. I mean, it's a reverse breathe right strips, right? But it forces you. Magnetically speaking, it forces you to breathe through your nose. Medically speaking, and that's that. So now that's what I do on my left. I tape my mouth, I wear a retainer when I sleep, I wear these tinted sunglasses and I have a Jade roller for my forehead to just kind of take everything down or not because I learn Pablo in the years you've known me. Yeah, I can afford a few notches. I could take it down a few notches. You know, a reality ten is someone else's
"sports television" Discussed on The Herd with Colin Cowherd
"He have to be? Because I know what I get from pulisic. I don't know what I get from him. So I would say the question about freya is an interesting one, because you could say, who's the most important player to the U.S. having some success? I could name pulisic. I could name mckenney. I could name Tyler Adams. But Ferrera, and it doesn't just have to be goals with him. This was a game he actually scored four goals in a match against Grenada. But the job of the center forward and Greg berhalter's system. And this is why you have to trust Greg berhalter that he's doing the best that he thinks for the team with the personnel he's got. That position oftentimes you drop a little bit deeper, you try to bring defenders with you to open up space in behind for pulisic for aaronson for Tim wea. So it doesn't always have to be about the goals in the system that we play. France won the World Cup in 2018. Do you know how many goals their striker Olivier Giroud scored in that tournament? Zero. Not a single goal from the number 9 position. So I know we scream and yell and we think, hey, strikers have to score goals. They can do a lot if you have the pieces around that can produce. Our most talented players, as you know, are in the wide areas. We have depth beyond belief we can rotate geo Rena and pulisic and aaronson all these guys. The number 9 position though, you have to be effective, either scoring goals or holding up the ball linking up play. And that's why Ferrer is in the lineup. Not because I think Gregg thinks this guy's going to score 6 goals. Yeah, I don't think the team's complete yet. They can tweak it up until like, yeah, up until the very end. I'm 26 this time as well, the roster. Do you think I don't think it's done yet? No, I mean, September, we're going to find out. We got two games left. The last two games you're going to see the U.S.. We have the game against Saudi Arabia, which will be the last two friendlies. And you're going to get a look, I think you might see this guy Vasquez who scored 14 goals in MLS, striker is a position of your red hot and you got that hot hand. You might work your way into the roster. Okay, it really is amazing. So you got pulisic 23, played Chelsea. You got McKinney's 23 Juventus Sergio desk 21 Tyler Adams 23. He's trying to make me feel old. But I'll throw this at you. And when we went to Brazil, the conditions were daunting. And I think there's an argument to be made, Qatar, it's going to be really warm. And I do think it benefits our youth, we're going to be young, fresher legs, my guess is we're kind of built for these conditions or am I being too patriotic and optimistic? You're right. I mean, one of the interesting things you're going to see in Qatar is these air controlled climate controlled stadiums with these big fans that blow on the field and it was amazing during the summer, it was a 110° out. They played a game inside the stadium, a player took a selfie with a thermometer, and it showed that the temperature on the field was 65°. So it was about a 40° difference from outside to end. Actually, during the winter, the temperature is going to be about LA's in the 70s. One of I think an area where the United States can have a real edge is in sports science and the fact that we invest a lot of money in that. I went to the U.S. practice in Kansas City and they call them red hats, a red shirt 'cause there was the staff around. There was more staff than players. And I'm talking physiotherapist, sports science sports scientists and tracking data and the rest and recovery for these guys. This is going to be the first World Cup where teams do not have to travel outside of one single city. So you're going to go to a game, you're going to come back. You're going to go to a practice you're going to go back. You'll be in the same hotel the entire time. So that means the U.S. is loading up with a game room. They're going to have, you know, all the stuff that these kids, these 20 year olds want. They have xboxes and PlayStations and rest and recovery centers. Hypothetically, chambers. I mean, the U.S. is going to throw big money at that to ensure that they can maybe find an edge that other teams don't have when it comes to investment in that stuff. I think that's where we can find an edge. The world cup for the uninitiated here is a little like two tournament. You have group stage. So our group is England, arguably the best team. I don't think they'll win it. It's England. They're going to expect to win it, but I don't think they will, but I think they're really talent. I think they can play with anybody. And then we have Iran and then Wales, Wales is viewed as the smallest. It's the weakest team. They have one great player, right? Okay, so my feeling is the World Cup becomes two tournaments. There's group stage. I feel like we're the second most talent team. I think we get out of the group stage. Realistic, realistic, and that should be the baseline expectation. Every single World Cup and I would have said that before, but then we didn't qualify for the World Cup. Right. So Greg berl halter again, he was talking to you. He said, we view this as two tournaments. You get through the group stage. It's kind of a slog it out and you find your way, you manage the three games, you're probably rotating lineups to get the best versus each team, your first game is the most important. And then I think Greg, and I would agree. The last game against Iran is also a game you view, we need points out of that one. England, we go in and we try and run it up, and that's the team that we're going to finish first or second. And it will determine who we get in the second match, which would be us paired with the host group, which is Qatar, Ecuador, and then you have the Netherlands in there as well. And I think Netherlands is the team you would want to avoid out of those and maybe you get Ecuador. Netherlands, I think they're back this year. They didn't qualify for the last World Cup. They were in the final in 2010. It should be noted. We all, we all get anxiety, last World Cup, who didn't get Italy didn't make it. Netherlands didn't make it. Think about Italy. How big saw career is. So by the way, Germany's had downswing. Two straight world cups for them. Crazy. So this is not, I really do feel like if you're a soccer fan or me, a casual as I would be called by you indie rocker. But I do believe this is exciting because I feel like there was the Kyle wrote junior stage of soccer where we couldn't compete. Guys didn't play internationally. Then there's the Stu Holden Dempsey. Alexei lawless, some of our guys do play internationally, may not star, but they play. Now we're getting guys that go internationally and are viable scores, stars, stars. Yeah. Those are the three stages in my life. Now, I do not, I think the next World Cup is the one where I sound so patriotic here. I think we're about four years away just an experience, but I think we get out of the group stage. I think we win a game out of the group stage. And I think we're really viable. That is my hope. Again, how does it land for you? What will you see that will concern you? If you see something early and go, uh oh, what would it be? So the game against England is a game where we're going to find out a lot about day after Thanksgiving. Yes, the day after Thanksgiving on probably the best lineup of sports television sound like a company man now, but we're going to have the cowboys Thursday. And then Ohio State Michigan on the Saturday. So look, I think what I worry about with this team is that they are so young. They're fearless. They don't know what they don't know until they see it. And we're going to find out when those bright lights go on and you're on the World Cup and you're the big stage against the Welsh team that is competent. They had a good run at the Euros, not the 2020 version, but the one before that in 2016. And I just, I hope, and I don't believe it is going to be this way, but I hope that I see that look in those eyes that the guys that we belong here. And we're not happy to be here and be happy to be back in the World Cup. And we're these young guys and we play it big clubs, but we're not expected to go far. I think this team when you get to the knockout stages and you get rolling, you pick up some momentum, they have players that play against the best players in the world weekend week out at Barcelona at Chelsea at brucea Dortmund, et cetera. So we have talented players as a team collectively. Did they believe in themselves? And did they not make those little fine margin mistakes at the back or at the goalkeeping position where we might have a little bit of inexperience or guys that aren't playing regularly. That's the thing that concerns me a little bit. As a team ever won the World Cup with poor goaltending. Has anybody ever been bad in the net and you don't have to be great? I'm trying to think here. France had Hugo lauris, Germany had Manuel Neuer 2010 Spain, Devi, I believe it was or E care Casillas. No, I would say

"The tv truck. It's anything but poor. Well i like until a football game right. You got your first quarter where. You're golfers like every thursday friday and then there's the cut but you've got to kind of film every year on tv. For how many hours right. So you don't really at the end in the fourth quarter when it gets exciting and you know the leaders are right every day. It's probably a little easier to film that then absolutely in the beginning. You're just trying to figure out. Who am i gonna shoot. How did you figure that out why you kinda go in with a plan and so you know what was what was mike. Tyson's fame sign. Everybody's got plant. They get hit the mouth or whatever you have a plan because the pairings the groupings come out on wednesday and you're on the air on thursday like say you're at a time might be from one to four from two five or from noon to five and with those early days in the golf channel we kind of had a a motto. Were lucky enough. That we didn't have a sixty minutes to have to go to or any kind of show any other network show off kind of drove the train so they were constantly around the for six eight ten hours and if and we'd sit through rain delays like we wouldn't go away we'd sit there and do interviews but you kind of have a plant. So you have a grouping sad you know there's two or three groups that are going to be in your tv window and you build your kind of build a plan around those guys and the tour was nice enough to kind of make sure that the that bigger name players were playing in the tv window or the guys that you kind of figure. We're going to have a chance to win the tournament. Even though it was thursday or friday So then you go on the air with that plan and then all of a sudden those guys played terrible and somebody on the other side of the golf courses. Lighten it up. So you gotta rearrange. Shift the cameras. You know your whole plan goes out the window you try and do that and throughout the course of my eighteen years golf channel the technology in in broadcasting in sports television in television in general but especially in sports television as you know having. I'm sure you still watch. Nfl games or amazed by what they do now with with with things but in golf it was really when i first started and i hate to go too much into the weeds. But you can only like. I said they're a bunch of guys playing at the same time in the wave in the afternoon waiver. When you're on the air there could be seventy guys playing golf so you can only show. Obviously one of them at a time right so and one of them live at a time. And when i first started. We had four videotape machines. That would record the golf so when the producer a guy named andy young who was my mentor was showing us for at on the twelfth. Green putting for birdie. It was my job to find. Four other shots than i thought andy and he would tell me to save record this record that record this so he could put those that piece of that puzzle back together showing the take shots around the live shots and this was i gather real right here. How many how many cameras were actual video tape machine on machine recording golf shots just you know and the technology was such that you had to record it. So you push playing record Tape tape operated. He'd push playing record record gusts ferraro's second shot at twelve. That would last anywhere between twelve and thirty seconds depending on what happened. You'd give a little bit of pad at the end of it. And then have to stop the machine. Rewind the machine at it up and for to get ready for playback so all this technology rest now. This has gone the way of digital prices that can record and playback up to six things at once. So there's no more you know letting shot go through stopping rewinding it for playback now it's just it can play and record at the same time yet. Already made it easier harder on the gashes and it's so much easier you know because you never have to wait. You know the producer not doesn't have to wait for that other shot to finish to screw up his timing or figure out where he's going to go next is always there ready to go in you. Have things like ball tracer now and you. Have you know how faster swing was so. There's a lot that the people can talk about besides just watching them hit. Yeah absolutely and that's the other part of technology exchange that in the cameras again. I feel like i'm the guy that said. When i i went to school i walked uphill. You know through the snow both ways but you know we are cameraman. We used to lay up to one hundred hundred thousand feet of cable on a golf course and our camera guys would have sections of cable. So there'd be a cable at the t. You'd run to the fairway there'd be another cable from the fairway to the green so our camera guys that were out walking with the groups would plug in at the t. Shoot the shot. Unplug getting a car. Go after the fairway beat the players get to their spot on the fairway plug ins so then we could see the shot again and once called radio frequency technology our our technology came twenty years ago whereas all of a sudden if a camera. There was a receiver and a transmitter transmitter on the camera receiver high up around the golf course and if that camera could see that you could get a picture so all the sudden now you can get a picture from anywhere on the golf course without having to plug in and unplug cables so that was technology that really helped often and but the the tracer technology and the ball speed. We used i. It was my brilliant idea at one point to get the baseball jug skin and we thought because we were turn on time and we pulled into the compound and there was a california highway patrolman there with his radar gun. And i was like well. He measures the speed of the car. You know coming at him. I wonder if we could use something like that. To measure the speed of the golf ball going away. So i called the people at jugs and they sent us a couple of guns and it turned out that it actually worked. We could measure the ball speed when the guy teed off track man right so now. It's of like yeah. The precursor to track was a volunteer sitting. Behind the d-box women jugs gun pointed at. You should have just had a state like would been like state troopers day off coming and they will come on the course where your uniform you can measure all right. That's a good idea. He would have been good attic. Used to work in the darn thing. Right exactly exactly. Hey everyone thank you for listening We're gonna take a quick commercial break. We're talking with author emmy winning producer keith.

"Before the trade deadline if at all Jason will cam. Newton be the starting quarterback in new england for the patriots. I don't know I'd say tv There's you know we've got preseason games back in as much as there's a lot of especially when you get to the fourth quarter that might make you gouge your eyes out there. It does serve a purpose and It's a little different scenario when you're the other guys aren't wearing the same uniform that you're wearing so do i think if you look at a pie chart and who's gonna have the most reps there by the end of the year. Do i think he could be jones. I do. But i don't know that if you look at the you know the timeshare week one that it's drastically different They they know cam. Newton provides them in the run game. They know the kind of run action and the things he opens up. That makes other people better in that regard. And i don't think they want to disband that and they know that they don't get that with mac jones so You know that's one that i'll be fascinated to see how how much they're both sprinkled in there but at the end of the at the end of the year who's gonna have the most dropback passes for the new england patriots. I think it's probably metro. How many to six five percent. Yeah baen which pittsburgh cleveland. Cincinnati pittsburgh pittsburgh me twice cleveland. Cincinnati baltimore buffalo. Which team jumped out as this team has seems to be have more juice more talent than the others looked rosters in in buffalo and cleveland or no joke and the bills have They've gone some sort of squatty. Sorta athletic defensive front to a bunch of dudes you know six six guys on the edge and star load to lay lay back to gap in it in the middle and oliver can slide over to where he should be an tremain edmonds. I think he's gonna take off. I mean i think they're front seven just got a whole lot more Jam to it than a year ago. And i you know we. We know about the rest of that team. So they're very impressive. And cleveland. And the cleveland browns are big. They're fast the deep key sich critical spots. I i mean again. I can't predict the future which david on climate from a health standpoint. But i think when he's available he's going to be a thing for them I think myles garrett is is certainly going to be in contention for defensive. Mvp and and they've they've made so many moves in the secondary that a couple of them have to like. It's gotta be better than a year ago. It can't just be living or dying with denzel war and making a play on the ball So i'm super intrigued by them. I think they're in a really good place and I'm bullish on the browns and the bills. Gnc great stuff man Football is back. we'd love talking football with you. We appreciate you join us. You got a buddy. Thanks for having me jason lockenfora. Cbs sports check them out of cbs.

He is a tough pill to swallow. Michael thomas saints wide receiver. Just put out a message this morning in response to what was seemingly some interesting reporting the came out over the weekend so he just put out on social media. They tried to damage your reputation. You saved there's by not telling your side of the story now. What does all this mean. Well it's been a pretty interesting up and down year and a half or so for michael thomas He got a huge contract extension back in two thousand nineteen. He did a minor holdout and training camp. Got that huge contract then. Last season twenty twenty. He struggled with injuries all year. A nagging ankle injury which put him on the injured list Throughout different times throughout the season then at the end of the season the saints team and trainers were suggesting that he should be getting surgery as soon as possible so that that way with three to four months time recovery. He would be ready for the beginning of the season. However thomas sought an additional second opinion through other doctors. Besides just the saints. This doctor gave him a more conservative. Approach that suggests that that he avoid surgery and rehab and it didn't work correct and then they but the big thing was they couldn't get a hold of them. That was the big thing that was three months. Could not get a hold of. That's right from the times picayune quote for unknown reasons. Thomas fell out of communication with the saints. He did not return multiple calls over the next three months. Then saints trainer bo bo. Lowery and wide receivers coach curtis johnson and head coach. Sean payton all tried to reach thomas. None of their calls were taken or returned then shortly thereafter. Suddenly it pops up michael thomas. Having surgery michael. Thomas potentially not ready for the start of regular season. So what. what is his story that he's he's putting out there. He's my side of the story. What side of the story is there. Couldn't tell you. but he's keeping it cryptic perhaps very intentionally. We also know that. Last season while michael thomas was struggling with an ankle injury. He was also set to return from that ankle injury. Part way through the season but then was suspended by the team after getting into practice fight and perhaps being a little overtly aggressive with the coaching staff. Not good i mean like. And what's what's crazy about. Thomas was he was obviously undervalued in the draft going in the second round so he made he carried that chip on his shoulder made them pay an earned all that money that like he was given. 'cause i mean he's a stud wide. Receiver drew brees. Not a great arm. Obviously as we know and he still found ways to get open and can't guard. Mike obvious is his twitter. Handle but people in the organization said his gibby. Can't stand mike right. So whatever chip. He carries on his shoulder. Like there's a level of professionalism where your boss has to be able to get a hold of absolutely for three months and you're injured come on man right exactly to your point when then is going to affect your availability to actually perform that job when it matters most by the start of the season you absolutely have an obligation to keep your team informed of what's happening and we'll wrap it up with this guy. I know you'll have more to say on peyton manning and the hall of fame induction ceremonies from over the weekend but bill belichick spoke with ben villain of the boston globe about peyton manning. He said quote. He is definitely the best quarterback. I've coached against there have been quarterbacks who called their own place but it was nowhere near the same as what he did. He basically called every play by adjusting or changing the play. Once we saw defense was doing once he saw what the defense was doing. He excelled at using the cadence and recognizing says and more than any one single offensive player. He forced us to change and adapt defensive. Game plans now remember. He has coached against tom. Brady he has called tom. Brady the greatest quarterback ever. I think what's interesting. Is that since payment in retired then retired to the super bowl champion and those of us who were in sports radio in sports television or remember he won very good is last year but when payton retired many people said. That's the best quarterback ever. That's the actual best quarterback that brady at one more but been part better teams but organizations and since he's retired it's like we kind of it's like he's kind of getting the far treatment. We don't bring up five in the top five quarterbacks time he should be. We don't bring up manning in the greatest quarterbacks of all time because brady has seen this kind of second wind of success and.

"To sing them. It's also by the way insane as anyone who has seen maria taylor work on. Espn would say oh. Yes retailers a great television host. Would you not agree absolutely. Yeah i mean if you watch. nba countdown. We haven't talked about her on the show at least not that. She really is a unbelievably talented broadcaster. And i think that doesn't quite do it justice. I mean if you watch if you just watch five seconds of if you just watch one segue bit they do. You can see that. It's sort of like the evolutionary. Tnt postgame show is in. It's related more to that hurt. Their talents are more related to that and they are the traditional studio show or this traditional pregame postgame show. It's like as stilted as those things used to be and sometimes still a lot of sports just her personality and her skill has turned it into you feel like you're dipping in for fifteen seconds of a running conversation and then maybe that doesn't sound like much but it used to be so stilted and with her her her show is so comfortable and so it you you actively want more and more of it not just because it's brief but because it feels like an like an intelligent conversation that you're a part of and you almost feel like a generational shift and listen. I'm not going to compare it to anybody else in the story but from the people that came before her as paint with a broad brush. It's almost a generational shift between people who were great studio hosts and maria taylor who is just sort of a like a human like like an incredible like force of nature personality that it's so yet that's so powerful reserved at the same time. I'm overstating it may be. But she's really really like the best. There is at what she does. Think you. i think you hit it when you talked about the comfort of being on television There are lots of their lots of really talented. Broadcasters never quite mastered the idea of looking like they're comfortable being on tv that that they're just completely at ease and they're ready to go and that that is what they're doing. And i and i think she i think that is yes that that is one of the qualities among many that comes out for me to her so i just you know whether whatever she's doing she's on a whole bunch of different things that that network this call. David was supposed to be private. As we said those words were never supposed to be heard by people at espn. That rachel nichols hussein but that of course is also what made those words particularly damning inside. Espn yeah because as draper writes multiple. Blackie has been employees. Said they told one another. After hearing the conversation that it confirmed their suspicions that outwardly supportive might maple talk differently behind closed doors. Yeah that sounds about right. That was like the first sentence from the piece that i like. you know. Underlines am i right. Quick sidebar wizar- was it twitter fake news. Or am i gonna correct in believing that the person whoever it was that responsible for leaking video was punished a year or two ago whenever it initially happened. Oh we're oh yeah we're gonna we're gonna get there okay. I just want to make sure that that's stroup of going into much because it's ended. It's real news. That's real news so again like you like you point out before this happened. Some time to go and they dealt with it presumably heard the tape and doe that to their to their satisfaction sometime ago. But i wonder but i want to talk about specifically but that new york times quote that sends that you just reading the times and i say this look in the mirror a little bit too because if you think like you mentioned that this reinventing goes on a lot and it does venting is a human thing. We all as human say things that we would hope would not be circulated around the internet. I wanna say general venting minus minus layering of race and diversity and everything but yes vent venting is a is. A is a right of sports television sports media in basically every business in the united states. When when when that hogan tape came out years and years ago or whatever and everybody was kind of happy to kick him out of pro wrestling history. And i was you know lined up as one of those people. I did want to make the point. That if you're you know if you're if you're if you can no longer be a fan of any professional wrestler from the eighties. Who has said they said the inward in their life. You don't have. You're not gonna have many people to be fans of anymore. This sort of conversation probably goes on a lot. That's the point of the suspicions right. I mean the suspicion that that that black espn employees had was well-founded. I don't think anybody would dispute it in the absence of this tape. But that's not exculpatory and that's not really the point right if you find yourself if you find yourself like pursing nichols quotes detained for lucidity for like you know subtle points that might be made and i admit i can be guilty of this kind of thinking but if you if you are doing that you're the point entirely because this is a much bigger issue the rachel nichols is now the sort of paradigm of. She's the symbol of this and she is both justifiably. The target of this story of the the unease at espn and of the Whatever feelings that people are having around the world and it's also a an issue that much much bigger than her so it's not about how she couched it and it's not about whether or not this stuff goes on. This is a much bigger issue of which she is now. Justifiably the focus absolutely absolutely. She apologized on tv on monday She says in draper story that she tried to directly apologize. Maria taylor she's quoted. Same retailer has chosen not to respond to these offers which is completely fair and a decision. I respect. I wanna dig in. I got five things thing number. One is let us dig into the corporate. Espn response to was. I cannot underline enough that this happened one year ago one year ago and the comments is draper. Reports were circulated very quickly.

If passed, the governing board would suspend amateurism rules related to name image and likeness, and the temporary policy would allow athletes to engage in this type of activity without violating any rules. It's obviously a long overdue. Gary Parrish is a CBS sports television analyst. He says pressure comes from nine states that have laws starting in July, giving athletes the ability to profit from their faith. Whether the N C double a improves the policy or not. The incident had been dealing with this issue literally for years and promising to do something but never did anything until they were forced into this corner. This is all part of a battle brewing for years and even taken up in court. Last week, the Supreme Court unanimously ruled the N C double a could not cap education related benefits. They now know that if they try to restrict on name, image and likeness with their rules, they'll be the ones that get sued and they'll ultimately be the ones that lose. Parrish says The expected approval will have groundbreaking consequences for sports. There's a lot of different ways for student athletes to make money. There always has been. They just haven't been allowed to do it. But come Thursday, they are going to be allowed to do it. With very few restrictions on the board of directors making that decision is largely made up of university chancellors and presidents. And approval is highly expected. Now.

Everything you went through there from the time that you announced it to the time that you actually executed it, man, There's a lot going on there, but I think I I think it is a weird way, mostly on the emotional part. It brought me back to how I got there which I touched on in the article I wrote for the L A Times and Some other interviews, and, you know, I probably talked to you about a previously like I was a real long shot to ever get picked up by ESPN.

News are come on news time now for 11. Thank you. Bill. Markets are awaiting the results of a meeting of the Federal Reserve, which ends tomorrow, along with a bunch of corporate earnings reports bankrate dot coms chief financial analyst Greg McBride with a closer look and come was Tom Color choices. The first Fed meeting of the year. Certainly coming with a lot of economic turmoil surrounding it. Certainly, you know, I think the Fed is clearly focused on the downside risks to the economy. Of course you know the virus. Surging, you know, even higher than had been a previous meetings, job losses again on the rise instead of recovering jobs on business failures and ongoing concerns. I think the Point that Chairman Powell make abundantly clear is that the Fed is a long, long way from raising interest rates are dialing in any other combination. What is one takeaway from this meeting for consumers and business owners? It might be kind of Ah, So if something they have in common here, well, you know, I think that there was a little bit of concern at the start of the year. We so long term rates bump up and you know there's optimism but vaccines that a lot of pent up demand that you know, we said, might be forced to raise interest rates sooner than expected. And you know the chair pal is already kind of start to throw cold water on that, you know, expect him to reiterate that message that the Fed is going to keep rates low for a long, long time. They want businesses and consumers that have the confidence to go out. Borrow and spend. Which is what's needed to regenerate the economy. That said, like to pull the rug out from under is inflation, something that we should be concerned about what? We're gonna hear a lot about it. We already are this year. A lot of that's just because there's some pent up demand. But then there's also the really low bar. Last year. The price index actually declined last spring. So even if the price index stays exactly where it is today, it'll look like inflation is accelerating in the months ahead because of the low bar set last year. A lot of that is just temporary. So you're gonna have to kind of filter through that. We'll hear a lot about inflation, but so far no indicators that we have to worry about a permanent jump. At least not in the near term, Greg. It seems like almost everything has been done. That could be done. But his arm or the Fed can do to stimulate the economy. The one remaining tool that they have is they could shift more their bond purchases to longer term bonds. The benefit of that is that would help keep things like mortgage rates really well, Housing is going gangbusters, people refinancing their mortgages and saving a couple 100 bucks a month. That's very stimulative to the economy. So if need be, I expect that they would put that tool into effect. Not something they're going to do now, but definitely something I think that will get rolled out at some point here, 2021. All right, thanks As always, for your insight. That's his bankrate dot coms.

College football: Georgia beats Cincinnati in Peach Bowl
"Tim. Brando has returned and we are always excited to welcome. Tim brando back to our show and tim. Thank you for the time. Happy new year and man. Is there a lot to talk about. Yeah and even some of it is in sports too. You know a little bit of it has to do with sports up. And i've never been happier to be involved in sports right now. I can tell you that this is a this is a good day to cure about a college football game because otherwise you might need. You might shift drink. But let's keep it on college football before we get to monday night because certainly there's plenty of analysis. I couldn't help but think of you. On on friday as cincinnati was holding on dearly and ultimately lost to georgia in the peach bowl just You had been way out front arguing for others to be included in the party and they certainly acquitted themselves quite well. Yeah unfortunately you know this. Perception is reality. But sometimes the realities are when you wind up. Paul with A magnificent championship match up. And i will concede that that's what we have. I mean let's face it. We're talking about the two premier programs with the two largest brands from the two cities that get the highest ratings in sports television columbus. Ohio being second in birmingham alabama. Being one we're talking about the the the cfp really getting very fortunate. I mean really really fortunate. Because you know i certainly didn't believe in ohio state To be clemson the way they did. And i saw enough of ohio state during the regular season to know that they did not perform anywhere. Close to that Until that game was played. Which i think gives you know you have to give a lot of credit ryan day for having his staff and really his own gain planning so schematically superior to davos sweeney and clubs. That's you know brent. Venables is an outstanding defensive coordinator arguably considered maybe with dave aranda. Now is the head coach the best in the country and they were absolutely woodshed. It by ohio state and they did it. Schematically with two tight ends what they call twelve personnel football speak and utilizing the tied in and other receivers in a way that they have not done all season long. certainly they didn't do any of that against northwestern football team that defensively had the their team in a position to possibly beat ohio state in the big ten championship. I mean if it weren't for trae sermons Who had an unbelievable record breaking performance rushing the football. You know ohio state. Does it win that game against pets. It's gerald steam. So i think it was a legitimate by most of that cover football on a regular basis that simpson. Just add way. Too much ammunition and from a defensive standpoint would be able to handle what Been a relatively Understandable offense to defend. You know if you take care of justin feels and you double alava at wide receiver. You should be able to handle them well. That certainly was not the case in this game. So the cfp gets break with this matchup but that doesn't stop the thought process that that cincinnati gave everyone a reason to understand my point of view on this and so many others feel similarly that this is a team deserves to be playing for something a lot more than they were against georgia. They were two yards away all on third into and really didn't have to convert the third to if all they had done is just run the football as opposed to pass it Georgia would have had twenty five thirty thirty five fewer seconds to work with to get the ball to field goal range for fifty three yarder to win it. So i would contend that cincinnati's not just not getting the two yards but just deciding to throw the football rather than run. It was the difference in winning and losing. And and i think if that had happened the narrative wouldn't just be all my god. How great a matchup we have. We know how state alabama the narrative would also be. God did you see cincinnati. You know i mean did you. And they put iowa state with two losses above them. They they they dropped them to spots. I mean cincinnati's case would have been so much different. Had they been able to pull that off against georgia. But but i think people that are smart enough. That really understand the grander landscape of college.

The highest rated new year's six game on your employers air by far was the cincinnati georgia game that means the game against north carolina and by the way eight. Mp team's gonna wind up at the top four right but you know it was that was a glorified exhibition. It did not rate the way cincinnati's game rating with georgia. It just didn't so imagine if that game was cincinnati were game. That mattered. That really matter. i dare say it would make a huge difference in the mindset of so many people as it relates to expansion of college football. Football's player
