"Continue to have a busy show with dawn staley a few minutes earlier and more of your phone calls right now. Let's check in with Mark who is in Knoxville. Hey, Mark. Paul, I'll hope you will. Thank you. A couple of things. The gentleman as you head on, I think he's the CEO of the NIL, he was almost like reading from a script. I think and everything you ask him and also on the switch basis is a little bit to Jimbo Fisher. If memory starts to correct, Jimbo was ready to leave Florida state. And Texas a and M gave him unbelievable contract and it was designed for him to win national championships. And of course he has these I think he's disappointed some people there. And all of a sudden, because of the portal and because of this, he's got the best recruiting class in the history of mankind. And I think that has too many variables involved as far as boosters and other influences that could, you know, and it's unfair to a lot of schools, but my point is if he can do this, other schools can too. And I just have serious concerns about this blowing way out of control with a lot of different schools. And some coaches that maybe don't have that integrity going forward. Well, Mark, yeah, everyone is catching up now. I think what's what Carter everybody said by surprise was that, and I don't know exactly how he did it, but Jimbo Fisher figured out a way to manipulate NIL to his advantage. And I'm not suggesting it was illegal. Jimbo was on here. Three months ago, essentially saying what we're doing now used to be considered cheating. He's not running away from it. He's embracing it. And by the way, what he's doing is legal, it's just, he figured out something that everyone else is now catching up on. Thank you very, very much for the call. Appreciate it, Nick. Is up next in Florida. Hello, Nick. Hey, Paul. You had me laughing with your Jim nantz comment about what he might not say and here I was watching your dawn staley interview and you didn't ask for why that team didn't come out for the American anthem for the national anthem. And so it makes me, it makes me laugh. You know, South Carolina women's basketball lost $5 million last year. They lost more money than all the other women's sports at South Carolina combined. Now, Don steely made $3 million. So I was just curious to hear from her own lips while Americans struggled to fill up their gas tank. You know, Nick about it. From this political speech here, I have talked to Don staley about that issue in the past. So I didn't really feel the need to ask her again today in the aftermath of her national championship win. But listen, I'm not a CPA. I wouldn't argue or quibble with your numbers, but I would say what dawn staley has brought South Carolina today alone is worth far more than whatever number that you came up with in terms of the red line from last year. But I do appreciate your call. Thank you. Jason is up next.

"The first half to 3% field goal shooting, and I know a lot of people were saying what the other team is not very good. And I'm thinking, I don't know. I mean, I think South Carolina has a lot to do with that. It was just amazing to watch, and I know when you're in those situations, as a competitor, you want to just put the game away and win, but how do you get through a game like that when it's literally over before it starts? You're just going to look at what happened the weekend before. You know, where we took our foot off the gas. Against Kentucky and the SEC tournament and we're not representing the SEC as the SEC as an automatic good at the tournament champion. And you don't really look at the score, you know? I didn't really look at the score. I'm looking at where we are, how we're, you know, how we're defending our communicating, what's happening on the office side of the box we share the ball. Are we taking good shots? Because we know there's going to be a time in which we're going to be challenged in that way. So you just want to play your best basketball bank decisions out there and make sure you just don't take your foot off the gas and it's not anything, you know, to embarrass any team, but you have to plan a certain level. I do feel like with when you play basket, bad, basketball, contagious, just like when you play good basketball, it's contagious. So we want to loop on the playoff basketball at the most important time. Coach, it's always great to talk to you. Hopefully we can continue this and all the very best this weekend and it's a long way to go, but you're getting closer. Congratulations. And thanks for making time for us. Thank you so much, Paul. Thank you for having us. Thank you, coach staley. Wow. I always just a treat to have Don staley on as she heads to Greensboro from Columbia for the game Friday night against North Carolina. It's on ESPN and we are taking a break. You are listening to the Paul finebaum show podcast. With no fees or minimums, banking with Capital.

"From a certain former president? That's what I'm here to ask you. Did you ever have any sense that baseball was eating away at drew? So what inspired that name across sports and society? Did you kill Lorenzen Wright chair? I'm Pablo Torre, and ESPN daily connects the best stories in sports to the final score, wherever you listen. I mean, it's great. I mean, honestly, when you had a team is as good as ours and great human beings that make up the people in our in our program, you just you just do your job. I don't have to do extra stuff. I mean, I do a great job of delegating. But we got great coaches. We got great players who they just want to win. And they're going to do their part whether that's sweeping up, you know, debris on the floor. To actually the harder stuff, which is, which is getting us ready, a scattering report to get us ready for our next opponents. So there isn't any job that's too big or too small for any of us to do. We just do it. We just get it done. And we do it without complaint because, you know, no one's really listening to complaints. We just want to get the job done and compete for a national championship. Coach, you played on so many big stages. Obviously, you've played on these stages yourself with national championships and Olympic gold medals and you won the championship a couple years ago back to the final four. Since then, but we're getting down to that point in the season where these big games like you have on Sunday against Tennessee with all the attention, are they just, are they preparation for what is to come? How do you calculate these type of moments and how do they affect your players? I mean, we just try to keep the main thing the main thing and the main thing is for us to win basketball games. I know we had a lot of people, a lot of our fans were upset when we decided to not play the game against Yukon here because it's a big event everybody loves when you can't come to town, but we decided to choose our SEC opponents and our SEC schedule versus an out of conference schedule. And people were pretty upset, but this is the reason why. We get a chance to actually win our regular season championship on Sunday. If we play well, we know we're going to see an incredible Tennessee team who wants the same thing that we want. But we get a chance to do it at home. And we just try to keep the main thing the main thing. And we want to win a regular season, SEC championship because we know if you can win this league. The SEC conference. It sets you up to win national championships and that's part of what we want our journey to be as we as we try to and when I say this, we just try to win each game, but hopefully that leads up to winning the national championship in April. You reminded me of speaking of the Yukon game, I think we did our show at South Carolina about 6 years ago when they came down for the first time. And it just seems like so much has changed since then and the idea of people being upset. I know that that may upset some people, but the fact that your fans care that much I'm not trying to put words in your mouth. Oh, that almost feels like a good thing, doesn't it? Oh, we love it. Yeah, yes, Paul, you started it all. You came here first. He started it all. Now game day is coming on Sunday. But yes, you know, our fans are pretty informed, like they're not, I mean, they are, they are over the top women's basketball gamecock fans, but they are so knowledgeable. They know about every team, every opponent, every conference, every great player that's out there, and they speak truth to power when it comes to loving up on our game. And they welcome the banter of other fan bases. And I do sometimes I sit back and I look at my phone on social media and I marvel at how much they know. I'm learning, I'm learning stuff about our game through our fams. And that's an incredible thing. If I don't know something, I do have a couple of our fans phone numbers and I just text them. What I miss and they'll fill me in on the lay of the land of what's going on in college women's basketball and I think that is such a beautiful thing when I'm supposed to know everything, yet I don't, I get the information from the fans who are on the street and they get they get all the noise in a surrounding our game and I think that's cool. That's so interesting because so many coaches harp about social media and they try to keep it from their players and they act like they never see it. How much do you get a chance to listen in or do people tell you what they're saying? I mean, I mean, it's a part of our lives. It's a part of our players lives. So I was one of those, I was one of those coaches that said, hey, let's give it up for the season. And then I mean, let's get real. These players need it. Honestly, they need it. They need it. It throws off their equilibrium when they have to give it up. I just wanted to use it responsibly. And I do think the fact that we have the NIL movement where their brands now. So they're going to automatically watch what they say and do because they want to utilize it to increase their value in IL world. And finally, on that subject, there's so much controversy about that. But you do have the premier program in college basketball, you have what everyone believes is the best player in college basketball. How is the NIO conversation gone with your team? For me, Paul, I leave that up to them. My work was done back in September and October when I reached out to our players, I said, let me know if you want me to help you find an agent. Because I want to get this in like now, like in the fall before we start practice before we start our season. So you all will be settled in with your agents and you can take care of the NIL stuff and keep it really out of the locker room and keep it out of the sanctity of what we're trying to do and making this year special year. So I had no issues. I think our players some of our players are reaping the benefits of it if not all of them of their brains. I mean, we have, you know, we've been leading in attendance for the past. I don't know 6 or 7 years, I know. I know one of our fans is watching. He's our numbers guy. If I got that number wrong, he's going to correct me on social media as to how many years we've been leading the nation in attendance. So it makes it incredibly valuable to us through athlete that want to get in front of all of these fans and want to, you know, they want to make money. And it's a cool way to do that. I know I'm pumping up, you know, our program and all the benefits of it, but aside from the NIO, I think we do a great job at teaching young people, you know, how to grow, how to grow and all aspects of their lives and fortunately for us. They're pretty darn good basketball players to where we can compete for national championships. Coach always a pleasure to have you all the best this weekend and the tournament coming up in a couple of weeks and we will talk again, I hope thank you very much for coming on. It's always great to see you. Thank you, Paul. Appreciate you. You bet, coach dawn staley, the one and only joining us from Columbia. And we are heading to a break. We still have a long way to go here on a Friday afternoon. You are listening to the Paul.

"Just a few minutes. You were listening to the Paul finebaum show podcast. We mentioned earlier when we talked to coach Harper at Tennessee, the big game on Sunday on network television and college game day leading into it. Tennessee facing the number one team in the country, South Carolina and we're joined now by dawn staley, huge article today on ESPN about coach staley inside the program, there is a fascinating look if you haven't had a chance. And we welcome in. Coach Daley, coach thanks for the time. I know you're very good with the media, but what's it like to have somebody literally trailing you around? I know it's not the first time that's happened, but it was quite an article. And on ESPN dot com. You know, you're always skeptical to have someone around as much and I mean, I always say I'm an open book. It literally we became an open book to Katie Barnes from ESPN and I mean, I've always been fond of her, her work. And was honored that she would come here and spend a few days here and actually I mean, she hit on everything. I mean, we sat down to talk a great deal, but she said in our film sessions, he sat in on our practices and when I tell you she picked up on everything. And then she went into the crevices of my conversations with our players and our practices. And I mean, she couldn't have written a better story. I mean, it was all authentic. And my words, you just don't know that everything would actually make it into the article. It seemed like coach if I could go off the edge for a second. One of your biggest struggles lately has been deciding what your Starbucks Starbucks order is going to be. Well, you know, I've been trying to take, you know, so make better choices. I did sneak after that. It got me a couple of karma machias because that is my, that drink does something to me more than any drink that I've ordered at Starbucks. Well, I know your team is done quite well this year. It even talked about the one hiccup on the season. She was around for that. And I know you're also you and some of your players were honored with the Olympic presentation the other day. I mean, I know that it seems like there's just so much to consume that you've been on this trail for so long. We talked to you as you were getting ready for the summer games..

"He did. He did. So, you know, I just want to encourage the callers and the listeners to try to sift out the logic and just ignore the wrestling stuff back and forth. I understand your ratings, but I do appreciate your knowledge and I'll just let you go with that and thank you for taking me. Thank you very much, Steven, really cool to talk to you. Jim is up next. Hey Jim, good afternoon. Hey, Jim. Poor Jim. Cynthia is up next at hello Cynthia. Hello. Hi there. Thanks for taking my call. I'm a first time caller. Wonderful. I just want to brag on auburn a little bit. Of course. Especially Smith greens and Kessler. And they have been doing a great job and looking forward to having the game this weekend. Well, Cynthia, you're right. Even though auburn has made the final four in the past, auburn was number one in the country, this year, but also in the late 90s, if I remember, I can never remember a conversation about auburn basketball more intensely than it is right now. Thank you for calling. Speaking of basketball, we have a guest in a few minutes. Dawn staley, only the head coach of the number one team in America remember she also was the Olympic winning coach for the USA gold team. We will talk to dawn in.

"More of your phone calls. Head coach at South Carolina next. You are listening to the Paul finebaum show podcast. And we welcome all of you back. It's great to have you here on a Tuesday afternoon. We're just listening to Darius Rucker who was with us the other day talking about his love of South Carolina and especially of our next gas coached on staley. The head coach of the South Carolina women seems the number one team in the country another dominating performance last night. Coach. Great to have you on. How are you and I can only imagine you are knee deep into the grind right now. What's going on? Yeah. I'm doing great, Paul. Doing great, you know, is a grind in our league. So this got a win yesterday and have to just turn around and prepare for old missed on Thursday. So that's the life of being an SEC. Yeah, I understand the reasoning I'll let you explain certainly you had UConn on the calendar, which is a game that all of us love to watch. We may see it again later in the year. Can you explain the details of that? I'm sure predicated by the original game with all this having to be postponed. Yes. Well, I mean here it is. I mean, I wanted to play the game. But also know that us playing the game and what it would do for the rest of our schedule. Would have just been an equitable for our team and equitable for the team that we would have had to play once we once we had to play old miss on a Tuesday. So we play, we display Monday, we play, we would have played UConn on Thursday and turned around and had to go at it on Sunday and then we would have to play old myths on that Tuesday. And knowing that we got another game on Thursday and Sunday, I just think it was just too much and oldest had January 27th, which is Thursday. And it just made sense. Once I found out that they had a biweek on Thursday, that's when I just started putting everything in the motion and I reached out to genome. And then we had a we had a conversation and it just makes it. It sounds like champ agrees. For those of you who have never seen Don and champ together, you're missing one of the great shows in college sports. I thoroughly enjoyed being with both of you a couple of months ago when we were in Colombia. So he did a great, I know that you guys have a long-standing relationship. So he obviously what choice did he have, really? I mean, you could have said we wanted to play the game and, you know, obviously TV would probably have probably one of us to play the game. You know, but, you know, I told him I wanted to make sure that I told you that if this game is canceled, people are going to look at it. I don't want you all to look bad. I don't. I didn't want you kind of look bad at this whole equation. So I told him what we were to say to him because it's us. We're the ones that are in this position in our league and we're the ones that have to take the initiative and cancel the game. And he agreed with that and then once we talked the administrators actually got together and started doing their thing and I just want to make sure that we just keep our a rivalry going beyond this particular year. I know you have to be concentrated on your own team and what's happening. But I thought it was interesting this week, people can say whatever they want about the basketball that's played down here on the men's side. We know how great it is on the women's side, but the idea that the SEC today has the number one team in women, which we knew about, obviously, it now has with auburn and Bruce pearl the number one team in men, I'm sure you saw that. I'm just curious what you think of that. Well, here's the thing. We always say when you're planning an SEC. The SEC gives you an opportunity to win a national championship by who we have to play night and night out. And now, you know, and not only gives us great competition, but it also gives us an opportunity to do something that hasn't been done like auburn. It's never been the number one team in the country. That's on the back of reading great competition in our league. Of us, I think when we lost our first SEC game on December 30th, the people in the polls thought we did well enough to stay the number one team in the country. And because also they know how good our schedule was, but they also know how good Missouri is and they know how good the SEC is and that's a tribute to the coaches, the players, our commissioner, great, thank you, just providing opportunity for, you know, for all of us, well, TV, like if we're not on TV, no one, the voters won't know exactly who who's doing what, but we're on TV. Twice a week. And that helps the overall just overall profile of each and every team that competes in the SEC no matter no matter what sport. Coach, I know ultimately you're trying to win SEC championships and national championships. But when you carry the number one ranking around with you, whether it's at home or on the road. What does that mean to your program? Legitimizes what we're doing. Not just this year, but you know, there's the same success. When you look at what we've been able to do, you see that we're a pretty good team this year, but then if you build into who we are, you can see that if you're not a follower of women's basketball, if you just go back.

"If you can find a way to get pressure on Mac. That's the reality. You're not on YouTube. Just hop on here and check this out real quick. It's really funny. That's the reality of getting pressure on Mac Jones. That happens and a throw a throw that looks what you can imagine happens. They're all looks like with that face. Not good. It's a duck going up into the air. All right, and this next point here, this is a good example of getting him off a spot. So they're gonna run play action, meaning they're gonna fake the run play action is just you're gonna fake run. That'll bring these linebackers up and it's gonna open up this crossing route that is wide open. And it's open for a couple of seconds. It's like plenty of time to get the ball out. But there's pressure. They're gonna blitz off the edge right here, and it's gonna force him to get off of his spot and step up. So in the time that he has to step up and then throw the safety is gonna be able to get over the top and make the play. If the pressure wasn't there, he doesn't have to step up and you can make an easy completion, but watch as I roll the clip, you'll see that if this forcing him to step up just a little bit in the pocket because of his blitz, right here, now he has to step up. Now he has to throw and now it's late. So just forcing him to have to be really athletic, which Mac Jones is forcing him to have to make those plays where he has to step up and get the ball out really quick and on point is going to lead to success, I think, for the charger. So, man, we always know that pressure on a quarterback does a lot of good things. We have to try to do that. They're going to try to run the ball right off the bat to establish so that they can do these play actions. And I will say after having watched just a little bit of this patriots film, just like they did with Tom Brady, they're gonna dink. They're gonna dink you all the way down the field on these short little passes, try to frustrate you and try to get you to come up so they can take a shot with a play action deep. So we have to have to be better against the run game this week. As kind of what we know needs to change here, but I think getting him off a spot like this will help us be really successful. All right, in this last one, this is an example of the jets getting a four man pressure, Mac stares down his receiver, which we all know, you've probably heard it a million times in a broadcast. You can't stare down where you're going. Because it allows everyone to flow to the ball. So what you'll see is they're going to try to get the ball out here to this tight end. This linebacker because Mac is staring it down and there's pressure, he knows the ball's getting out quick. He gets out undercuts it and almost is able to pick it off. So this is just showing you get pressure. If he stares down and receiver, it can easily turn into some interceptions and take aways for us. Go in the other way. So he's going to stare down stare down and then throw that line that linebacker because he's looking where he's going. He's able to move with his eyes and get underneath the ball. Because there's pressure he just has to get it out quick. I know we can force Mac Jones into some bad mistakes. If Joey boss is able to get his hands on Mac Jones, a couple of times early in this game. And we were able to Lamar Jackson through picks were able to get some of these good quarterbacks to throw interceptions against us. And these guys are veterans and a rookie who looks down as receiver and does all this stuff. Hopefully this is a big turnover game for us. Most games have been so far. I mean, we've not, we've not turned the ball over. We've done a great job of turning the ball over. It's just stopping that running game. And I think we're going to have to do it real quick here to start the patriot game. Right. And capitalizing on those turnovers. Yeah. Awesome. All right, we'll coach, hey, thanks for taking a look at our upcoming opponent. And can't wait to can't wait to see what happens this next upcoming game. All right, folks well, that's pretty much it here for this episode of the charge of chat. Next on the agenda is going to be me waking up at the crack at G whiz on Sunday morning and getting my fat butt on a plane and going to hang out with Josh and Landon over at the stadium. I should be getting into the stadium about ten 30, maybe a little after that. And I'm going to be ready for game day folks. I'm going to be my full getup for that too. I'm going to be in my Halloween costume. I don't want to give it away. I want you guys to see it and experience it as it is. Are you wearing it on the plane? Most of it, yeah. Yes. I don't see any reason why not to. I mean, it's all so comfortable clothes for the most part. And the couple other accoutrements. So I think yeah, I think for the most part, that'll be my airplane attire, but awesome. And also, in case you didn't hear thunder alleys doing trick or treating. They have the bolt Thor, Thorpe. I believe he's giving away like trading cards and people are gonna have candy. It's gonna be a good time. Yeah, I can't remember the last time that there's been a football game on Sunday. Or Halloween, Halloween, yeah. Yeah. So it's a football game on Sunday. Who was the last time there was a football game on Sunday? I don't remember. Spooky spooky spooky game folks. Again, I can't believe I'm going to this, but Landon, Josh, hold on. It's going to be a bumpy ride. All right, well, again, that's going to do it for us here at charger chat, folks. Don't forget to bolt up, 'cause we're ready for any squad, any place. But it doesn't. Put it at that, but it did dump but it did not charge the chat. Kill everybody. I feel very left out when you guys do that. We're sink. Why don't you go get a chicken lesson? Dude, come sing with us. I'm not a singer. I suck. Just come, come along for the ride. Okay, love you bye. Tell everybody, again. Fine. And now, a word from our sponsors. The Halloween. At SoFi Stadium. A new haunted house comes to town. Both are hungry. Prepare yourself. Mac Jones.

Tell me a little bit about what you think about. Whether or not the way that the charges are winning games currently is a sustainable. Sorry, got tongue tied there for a second, keep in mind, still functioning, operating off of the reality, taking a nap after this. Do you think they can keep winning his way on the edge? I mean, it's worked out so far for the most part, but you can only play with fire, but for so long. What improvements do you think have to be made can be avoided in order for this team to continue to be a legit contender? That's going to be it for me though. You guys know what to do.

You think he's just going to steal my job? No, dude, that was awesome. That was so damn funny. The point of Austin Eckler, right? Yes. I do think that last year with coach Len if he had fumbled like I put you on the show. Yeah. Yeah, you're done. Our coach Jose is like, nah, that's not it. You're great football player. You made a mistake. Go make up for it. Right. You know, like, that's what you always coach kids. You made a mistake. Stuff happens. Go make up for it, and go make a big boy to redeem yourself. Exactly. And that's not about it. It's about how you respond. The thing that I loved about what he said to is when he was talking about being down he's like, no, I believe that they're going to win. And I think it was that key word of believe. Hearing that made me think like in the past, it's hope. I hope we win. I hope we can make this happen. I hope we can convert this fourth down. It has changed now from hope to believe. I believe he's going to do this. I believe we're going to win. And it's a slightly different connotation, but it just has a totally different meaning. And I think it's a 100% what is happening this season. We have gone from hope to believe. And I love it. It's such a great feeling. As far as what it is that we need to fix or correct to ensure that we can continue to win, in my opinion, I think it's the kicking game. We can't be losing points, especially these extra points. These give me points. These are the ones that you have to make this. You have to make this. This is I'm not asking you a kick from 50 60 yards out. I'm asking you extra points. I'm asking for one more point. You've got to get a sense. It's so weird too, 'cause he just like, it feels like it's a mental thing almost pulling kicks to the point where they're not almost not hitting the net. There's so missed. Right. So it's a cause for concern. Like you give him certain amount of leeway, but then you're like, really look at this like we can't keep going crazy and having to go for two on everything. But the one thing I would say that just one player that I noticed that if he makes a couple more tackles. You erase two touchdowns off that board, and that's added. Adderley tried to jump, jump a play and make a pick and he got caught and scored a touchdown. Same thing with the joku touchdown. Like, there's no reason he should have ran 60 or whatever yards it was for a touchdown. It was just bad tackling. So I think this was a really bizarre game in the sense that I think their offensive line probably one of the better ones we've seen. I haven't seen an offensive line get to our second level and get on our linebackers quite as quickly as that team did. And then we just weren't, you know, our team is all about shooting the gaps having the backup guys come in and stop those stop those running backs. And they just weren't making tackles. It just wasn't happening. So I think that's the simple answer that hopefully this is just a fluke. Because up until this game, we were allowing 20 points a game, right? This is I feel like a weird little outlier that we just ran into. We just ran into a really good team. And we had to duke it out. It's like coach said. You know, you got these games are all going to be different. You just got to find ways to win. So we found a way to win. Absolutely. Any different opinions they're coach? No, I agree. I think it's just special teams need to get better. It was not very good at all on Sunday. We started the ball at the 15. It felt like on every single time they kicked off, and every time we kicked off, they started at the 30. Right. It was like 15 years, 15 yards worth of difference in starting field position, which you can't have. So yeah, I don't know what that one. We didn't obviously didn't punt very much. They didn't pop very much so. Yeah. It was mostly just kick offs in Pis, but yeah, both of those areas we did not do a very good job and we were very mediocre. Yeah, we just finished checking out the game against the colts and the ravens. And I think the Raven's got a block kick. There. So that's cause for concern if they're going to be that aggressive against our special teams. But we will wait to see next week, Craig, thank you again for popping on man. Always love to get your insight and your witty words of wisdom and you pump the brakes on those voices, man, all right? We got one out this podcast, okay? Don't take this from me. Please.

"What was it like for you watching that game? Well, first off, I want to say to both fans showed up for this game. At least in my section, Monday was 75, 25 raiders to charges. Totally reversed this time around. There's just nothing, but fans everywhere, and it made the game fired up. But I was, I mean, being a fan for so long, I was nervous and I was in the whole thinking of, okay, let's wait and see. Let's wait and see. Kind of like Kyle said when they were going for four instead of field goal that I was thinking of myself, what the hell are you doing? I know, right. Points. This is my white messing around, but I was proven wrong and I was telling people around me like, my bad call, you know. I got to get used to how this offense and how this whole poaching staff protest games because it's so much more exciting and keeps the edge of your seat and the place is just rocking. It was so awesome just to see this fight going on like a boxing match, you know. We've gone, ah man, it was an awesome game. And it's like, you have these games you go to that like leave a stamp. It feels like if you were at that game experiencing that, like, that's like one of those like stamp games that you'll remember for a long time. Exactly. It felt just like that. And I'm so thrilled that I was there, and I was like, man, I can't wait to see what the next games are going to be patriots. Vikings, I can't wait for these games to happen. Just like, I hope they're just as awesome. I know. Yeah, being a season ticket holder is so much fun and having the ability to kind of like just be around on the charger fans 'cause I live out in the middle of Missouri. So it's hard for me to get around to the charger fans, but like, man, our community is getting really awesome. What have you noticed from some of the fan interactions and being at the game? The bolt fam vibe like. Oh, everyone's so friendly. I mean, I went myself Fernando like you guys had last week. Sweet. I felt Adam I said hi to Adam over there at this snappy. But it's as neat to see people like that and know a lot of these people you guys feature in the tailgates and the organizations interact with them now. I said, I don't do social media to welcome. My wife now follows them on Instagram and stuff, so she's always pointing at all. Someone said we're having drinks over here, let's go hang out. Yeah, it's just such a good family environment and such a good value to pump that with, you know, thousands of other charger fans. And we're all sharing the same excitement, you know, it's the same experience of what a great, great season, you know, we're having right now. The four and one feels real nice. Feels real nice. And I thought I was going to be happy with three and three. To me, that was going to be heaven. You know, the innocent, but I can't wait for one. Dude, in legitimately looking at 5 and one before the buy. This is an exciting year to be a charger fan and from when we talked before we got started, you said you had something exciting you might want to share with us. Let me try to keep this short, but then what COVID in the past few years is tragic and it's hard it was for a lot of people. There was a few benefits that happened. I got to go on some chat rooms and beat a lot of people I would never met before. Sure. So one of the zoom groups I met with had a guy there that noticed my charger hat one night, and he's like, yeah, you know, I kind of a contractor for the organization. And I worked with the soccer team and the charters I could still hub. And I'm like, well, that's cool, you know, that's really awesome. So I got the opportunity to meet him when the restrictions lit up a little bit. Yeah. And he says, hey, you know, stick around. I got something for you. You might appreciate. I don't know, whatever. But it comes back and he hands me this. And he says, do you know what this is? And I said, no, I don't get it. And he goes, well, one of the duties I have is I handled the cannon for the charger games and he goes, when we had a retrofit the new logo on the canon, I got to keep one of the two pieces and he goes, I think you would appreciate it. And man, it was like, Christmas morning. I lit up at the green. I was fixing my brothers and family. Oh my God, look what the hell I got. And it's really cool because you can actually see the marks on the wheels on the back side. And wheels and everything. And I was totally stoked. I actually got to meet him again on the raider game. He came up to my seat to say hi, because he does all the pre game tunnel special effects on things. But you guys are going to kick out of that. Yeah, I do that. Gorgeous. That's like the first bolt on the new bolt on the canon. That's like legit. Keep that somewhere safe. Yeah, so one of these days when I get a space on the wall, it's going to go up, but in honor, you know, with the photograph and people can pay homage and they come over. Yeah, it's just like kissing. God, that's so cool, man. How random, cool, you just met some guy in zoom and he just happened to be running the canon for the challenge. Yeah, that was just having me so lucky and I try to share that story with fans. I know, because they get a kick out of me. That's awesome. I know, it's rad. So all right, well, let's get you out of here on this, you know, we have Baltimore Ravens coming up. We were talking about it. We could go 5 and one. What do you think we need to do to go 5 and one against these ravens? Well, I like to think that the defense could play like we did in mahomes and try to contain Lamar Jackson. You know, as the he's going to get his place, but if we can contain this Ronnie, I think we'll do a lot better than we did this past week because we're not going to be facing that two headed running to solve. Yeah. I think we'll be able to hopefully lock them down pretty good. I think I'm pretty confident we could probably pull the win out. Awesome man. Yeah. Can't wait for this game. I'm so excited. Cloud 9 right now. So and hopefully we can meet up. I'm gonna be at the Vikings game, so maybe we can meet up at a rally and say hi. Yeah, absolutely. All right man, well, thank you so much for your time. It was great having you, Michael, and yeah, we'll talk to you soon my man. Hi, thanks, Kevin. I love you, my man. Yeah, I love you bye. No, that guy. Michael, I know that guy. What a stud. Dude, what how cool to have a piece of physical thing of chargers history. Yeah. That's amazing. Mike maudlin's losing his mind right now. If he's listening to this podcast, he's I hope to hope he's given goddess little something about the canon little history on the canon. That would be pretty sweet to add Mike mon Linda's just dropping a little something for you. Something to look at, but oh man, Michael, that was so damn cool. That was what great stories, man. Again, just love these fan focuses and how they how they connect us all together. This beautiful umbrella that is the Chargers. This beautiful bolt umbrella. Awesome guy. It's just cool. You met him. We're meeting everyone. That's the best thing out of all of this is actually getting able to get face to face with people. Shake hands, talk and chat with these other people that some sick and tired of talking to you guys. Spread my wings and talk to others for reals. Awesome. All right, well, it's now time to go on to our next segment. We've got some killer wins now and every time we've been win and he's been bringing the heat. Let's see if he brings it this week.

"These big plays are when the defense isn't lined up. They're not ready. They're not ready to go. So it's so interesting the plan of attack that Lombardi has in terms of the hurry up offense, the speed at which they get going so the other team doesn't have the ability to line up correctly. And then you see what happens Mike Williams. He doesn't happen. It just goes back to, and this is kind of it's kind of a repetitive point, but they game plan for each week. It's something different. They have a unique, this is what we're doing this week. And it was very clear that this week, one of the unique aspects that they went into this game with is on third down, we're gonna know huddle and get to the line quick so they can't switch personnel. They can't change coverage. They're just gonna have to run what we already saw on second down. And it'll give us the advantage. 'cause you know, coach is up there. He calls his second home play. He's now looking at the coverage there and on second down and thinking, okay, what's the beat? How do I beat that coverage? And then has it boom in Justin's ear right when that second down plays over. And that was the I was obviously practiced. That was the game plan specifically for the browns this week. It's just cool to see your coaches each week coming up with a master game plan. You know, like something specific and unique for that opponent. Now obviously our defensive game plan didn't we had one. It just didn't execute, didn't work. Yeah. But offensively, they had a very clear concise. Idea and plan and they executed. Absolutely. And then they also talked to staley on the fan turnout and he said, what we are trying to respect here every time we go out and today was great was a great chance against a really good team. What you got to be able to do is you've got to be able to be good teams in this league. And I felt like to be able to do it in front of our home crowd, hopefully that draws even more in the next game. We are proud of our fans and hope to see more powder blue as the season goes on . Yeah. You know, the more they win the less people are going to sell their tickets and they're going to show up. Yeah. Or LA LA's people living in LA are going to want to go to the game and cheer for the charters. Right. What you just watched like, that was one of the most fun games to watch all Sunday and you can do that in LA. You can just go to the game and watch that in person experience the way you experienced it. This is like we talked about. It's like Herbert is changing this fan base. It was gonna bring more people in. I know, I know you're obsessed with Herbert. You're very obsessed. I know. But it is more than just Herbert bringing everyone to the stadium. But the reason for the season at the moment, bro are coaching staff is incredible and they're doing a great job. Do me a favor. Go watch all the ESPN's all the Fox Sports all the stuff that's happened today has been about Herbert. I'm talking. About just like shut your mouth. That's all I had. Actually, I'm not saying that sounds like you're not in love with Herbert and I kind of want to revoke your card right now. I'm just trying to cool your debts. You know why? Leave your family and go try to chase after Justin Herbert. Why? I think you're gonna do. It's meant to be if it's meant to be it's meant to be. Right. All right.

I think I'm gonna build in some pop quizzes. I know Kevin's gonna fail. Right. Here we go, folks. Let's do whatever. Whatever. Great moments are born great opportunity. All comes down to today. You think this helmet and you put it frighten his numbers, okay? I want to see nothing but not bubbles in his mouth. A lot of people want to blame coaches for a lot of things. But we shut them down because we can't. Because I believed in you. And I wish I could say something that was class union inspirational. I just wouldn't be our style. Let's do it. That's right, folks. It's time for another coach's corner. And for this episode, coach is going a little rogue. He doesn't have a question to pull from. He just saw something about this game that he couldn't help himself. He just had to talk about this. So coach, what do you got for us today? Does it have to do Justin Herbert? Justin Herbert's on the place. Yeah, he's got the boys. I'm excited. I'll make sure to talk about some other chargers too. We'll find out I'm a charger fan. Yeah. So I wanted to look at the fourth down conversions. Obviously, it was a huge turning point in the game. After going back in the moment, there was a lot going on very emotional time when all these plays started to happen. So after having sat down and thought about it more, the more I thought about it, the more I understand what coach was trying to do. What has been the quarter that's kind of screwed us the last three weeks. The third quarter has just been our bugaboo for whatever reason. We have these big leads. Like last week you can see raiders and we gave up 14 points boom boom boom just like that and it almost became a game again. Same thing against the chiefs. We had a little league. They came back boom. They scored a couple times in the third quarter, got a little lead on us. It started to trend to be a difficult, a difficult time for us coming out of the half. And again, in this game, the Brown scored a touchdown in the end of the second quarter, we then got the ball and fumbled and they kicked the field goals. They got ten points in a matter of like a minute and a half. And then they got the kick-off to start the second half and they went down and scored a touchdown. So they had 17 points in a 5 minute span. And we didn't even have the ball. So momentum was 100% all theirs. We had no momentum. We hadn't even had the ball for a while. Our defense wasn't really able to do anything and getting a stop or forcing a turnover..
Brandon Staley's Fearless Strategy Unlocks Chargers' Potential
"This is one of those games that goes down in history. It went with one of those games that coaches decided that he is going to be this dominant force. And he's going to lead the team. It's incredible. Identity has been stamped on the organization right now. You know, like the first couple games like, yeah, I get it, he's aggressive. You're down. They're putting up 500 yards of augment in your snow pedal to the metal. We're gonna go after him. That identity has been stamped on the charger's organization. Next level people gotta prepare for us now because we're going to do third down a second down, am I right,

"What team has ever been up by two scores, you know, 14 points and going for it on fourth down. What team does that? That was unbelievable.

But you're up by two scores and you're going for it on fourth down, it's like, dude, like this is such a different team with such a different mentality than it ever has been in recent years. And it is so exciting to watch, man. These guys are playing every day. They're playing their hearts out. And it's just it's a
Chargers' Derwin James, Joey Bosa Have 'Warrior' Performances Against Chiefs
"Some of the things that happened while we were watching this game and I remember seeing this, it was like, I think this was before the half. They show Derwin James running to the locker room and it was like, well, wait a minute. The defense is still out there. Yeah, yeah. Durham, where are you going? I didn't see this. I didn't know he disappeared. I didn't see it. Oh yeah, scared me. The telecast, they put it, it was like they highlighted it and then Tony Romo was like, oh yeah, and derwent headed back to the locker room. He was like, he was full spray. He's like, let's get this x-ray done and get out of here. Well, yeah, whatever it was. I mean, at the time, we didn't know. He wasn't limping. He wasn't carted off. It was like he was just going. So it was like, weird, like the defense is out there. What's going on? Come to find out after Fernando Ramirez talked to Joey Bosa, apparently Joey Bosa said that Derwin James, his shoulder dislocated. And so he ran to the locker room to get his shoulder popped back in, and it made it just seemed like nothing because he was pretty much back out there like immediately. So the Brandon still he said that both of those guys Joey Bosa, who was obviously playing injured, we knew that it would be might not have played on Sunday, but he did play through the pain, played amazingly as did Derwin James. Staley called them both warriors and understandably

Like even when he hurt his hand, he just shook it off and that was scary. And then he just shook it off. He was like, I'm fine, whatever. And then just like, when he's back there, there's no sense of urgency. She's like, all right, let's go. Go. Yeah. And crazy, man. It was just so crazy to watch.

How how how do you compare. And contrast what you've experienced in your past actually was pretty boring but it was pretty boring because you you know we. We played japan twice. And i think them not having a crowd. Kurt them more than hurt us. But we were. We were prepared like you know. The wnba was in the wobble The summer before we were in the bubble in ncwa tournament. So i i knew what was to be expected with there being no crowd. No anything and we're locked down.

One rankings sec regular season and tournament titles sec player of the year national player of the year wnba number one draft pick and number one recruiting classes.

"staley" Discussed on The Paul Finebaum Show
"So let's just have no expectations of georgia georgia fans. You know what i mean. Let's just do a win. One for the gipper kind of approach to the season. And then maybe they'll surprise all of us and actually seal the deal this side we dunkin in case you were wondering where that optimism is coming from l. I'm curious a couple other things. You were pretty good athlete in your day. When yesterday morning arrived and college players are able to make money legally for the first time your thoughts and how do you think it's going so far. Yeah i mean. I was not surprised at all that there's a bunch of them that have already lined up. Maybe i was a little bit surprised about the kind of endorsements right. I wouldn't think of like a nineteen year old with a lighting company I had lava lamps. When i was eighteen. But that's fine I think it's about time it's interesting because many many many years ago covering sports Talking to these blue chip athletes the by the way played a sport at the biggest school. You can play this sport at right. And he was a blue chip guy and he was getting. You know a fifty dollars stipend a week. These athletes can't work because their job is being an athlete and securing billions of dollars for their school for the nc double a. For the boosters. They don't have the opportunity to work like other college. Kids did and it was eye opening to me. The struggle that he had to struggle of wanting to leave school early to go and help his family and he's sort of ended up doing that instead of saying in school and maybe growing a little bit more in his sport he left And so. I think it's long overdue. I think this idea that like athletes should just be so happy to get a college degree when that is not everyone's goal that's not everyone's not everyone grows up saying all i want in the world is a free education. Some people really need to be able to contribute to their family and their family depends on them. So simply saying we're gonna make all this money. You just need to be lucky to be here. That never was good enough. So i'm glad that these young people and let me caution. Paul your viewers your listeners. All of us old folks from scolding these kids. And i keep seeing like us. Old grandpa's being like google tax attorney like these kids are very well versed on business practices. They are so much more advanced than we were at their age. So give them the grace and understanding that they know what they're doing But i would say that it now becomes a new wrinkle paul when you bring these kids into schools outside of just adjusting to being an athlete and being away from home for the first time. Now you're going to really have to help them learn how to build their business acumen. So i hope that when some of these parents have these coaches sitting in their living rooms recruiting their kids. They're making sure they're leaning on the business aspect as well. Young people are googling tax attorney right now l. so i i'm still somewhat stupefied by your national championship prediction. I'm going to let that settle in. i don't want to. I don't want to upstage that with any any other more difficult questions but we are so glad that you are are here today. We were big fans as you know and thanks for making our day and making georgia fans all across the world thrilled to know that their biggest supporter has predicted. Natty for is lying is lying to them on the paul finebaum show. Paul call me after the clinton from game and we'll see if i'm still on this new on the supernova of positively. I've been there. I've been there the morning after with al after a bad loss in the studio sportscenter. It's not pretty. I don't mean you're not pretty. The scene is not pretty. Yeah it's disgusting. It's actually but that's what i'm saying. I just i have nothing left hall. So i'm just going to do this a little bit. We'll see what happens l. Thank you always good to see. Paul you got l. dunkin right here. Go ahead and alert of media breaking news l. Dunkin predicts a national championship for georgia. And we're holding her to it. We'll take a break more of your phone calls at eight five five two four two seven two eight five when we.
Dawn Staley and Tara VanDerveer Push for Equity in NCAA Sports
"It is a really great to reconnect with you. And you've been down this road. We're talking about so often right now as you were gathering information for your talking to so many of the key players that have played a role in all this afternoon. And how are you Paul it's always a pleasure. Thanks for africa for a weeks for college sports. It has been really remarkable. And i want to talk about the aspect that you wrote about this this week in the post because i thought i was reading about myself even though i was a little bit outdated for for your piece because we all start as young reporters college college sports scandal was the ticket and we finally reached a point as you write about. We're the whole thing got turned upside down. Tell us about what you learned in. In some of the people that you spoke and the conclusion that you reached. Yeah for sure. I this story i did was sort of like we all understand. You know where we are with the supreme court and obviously you know gin ta you know. Really changing sort of undermining his roles doing a complete one eighty But it's done in the past fifty years. At least out i wrote about the media angle And i think that that that's the way to sorta queue this amateurism story because you know a very long time uncovering college sports scandals you know always a really important job for a sports writer for a journalists. They gave out pulitzer prizes in nineteen eighties. When a small medium sized papers and kentucky arizona uncovered Casting given to players from
The Promise That Led Brandon Staley Into Coaching
"Daniel during his introductory press conference spec in january. We really got a sense. For what a true football nut brandon staley is. This is all i've ever wanted to do since i was a little kid. I started drinking coffee in the first grade and reading the sports vase. Because i wanted to be here doing this job. i do. You think he was being serious about that coffee in the first grade thing. Oh absolutely jason actually specifically mentioned that in my interview saying that he was doing that in the first grade coffee reading the sports section with his dad but he said it actually wasn't because he was a sports not it's because he wanted to be his father and admired him so deeply that he wanted to sit in the chair and drink coffee and read the sports page. Exactly like his dad did which i think. A lot of sons can relate to trying to mimic your father. But i thought that was sort of an interesting twist on it because when you first heard brandon say it it was oh he was obsessed with sports because i was reading the sports section in the first grade but it really was because he admired his father. Well daniel you. Recently wrote about brandon staley's path to becoming the chargers coach and stem from the loss of his mother and from his relationship with his twin brother. Jason i can just tell us a little about the relationship between brandon and jason. Yeah best friends is how i would describe it. And pretty much inseparable from birth to really good athletes in high school. And i think the way jason described it was from the outside looking in people. Thought there might be some animosity. Just because brandon was always the better athlete brandon. Was the point guard on the basketball team. Brandon was the star quarterback and jason sorta played second fiddle. But the way jason described. It was never liked that our relationship people really it was kind of it was like competitive between twins and yeah certainly working at it but always telling me and him against everybody
Gamecocks Women's Basketball Coach Dawn Staley on Navigating the Pandemic
"Coach daily joins us now from texas where I hope you've had a good day coach. Thank you for joining us. And i know it's an exciting but also very pressurized time for you and your team it it is. It's actually you know. It's it's been cooler san antonio meaning you know. I know you know we've been holed up in the in the hotel for about two weeks now but for somebody like me who's introvert. I feel at home but you get a chain to compete for for a trip to the final four. And that can keep you focused and and keep everything besides that in the forefront of your mind so our players are doing great they are thank them for you know or not me being one of those coaches that you know kobe's been hard. The players did this or that. And i think our players because they they sacrifice of course but they didn't make it not a and then making a hardship. They just said this is what we have to do. Egypt changes that we have to make in our routine. I wanna compete for national championship is par for the course and that is how they approached it every single day of this plan that
The Unrelenting Force of Dawn Staley
"So josh. He recently had a long conversation with basketball. Legend dawn. staley. I for those who might be less familiar with her career and background. Can you give us a quick snapshot of just what this woman has accomplished. Well i don't know if i can do it quickly. It's a long list. She was a two time. Ncwa player of the year. At virginia she went on to be named one of the wnba. Top fifteen players of all time daily off screen getting that bit rates jabber every time. She comes down with a line drive. She has a board time olympia and as the player time overall including her coaching career. Staley underneath will sell it. Twenty three game winning streak for the united states. She went directly into head. Coaching style was never an assistant coach. Her first job was the head coach at temple and she came to south carolina following a fairly long career temple and has taken south carolina from okay program to a national championship in two thousand seventeen. South carolina spectacular. Performance chappie you dug pretty deep into you. Don staley's background her early background. Can you tell us about her early days and her family growing up well. She grew up one a big family lot five kids. The matriarch of the family was estelle salia housekeeper. They grew up in a housing project in north philadelphia. Not easy but still staley was a disciplinarian in her daughter's words and everybody knows my mother. She's a headstrong woman. She's deceased now but she was known for her straight took. No nonsense backed down from nobody. You did not take her parking spot at the mall without a fight etc and down has carried that onto a much larger stage so just a very tight family and still somebody who's very much shaped by her mother and be the course of north philadelphia where she played against boys for most of her childhood and became not just very good but very tough. The neighborhood i grew up in you had to make sure that you had a reputation as being strong then back now from anybody was able to handle anything that was throwing your way and that has prepared me for any curve balls. Life can throw me north philly. Tough was the word her brother used. And they don't throw that around lightly a connection between the way she was raised where she grew up and the kind of basketball coach that she's become a where she was raised in where she grew up has affected every part of her. She is not a person who on some days. It's easy to play for our imagine especially early in her tenure at south carolina there were players who left the program high profile players. Who left the program. I would think don stay. They would tell you. She may not be for everybody because she is not going to suffer any foolishness. She will defend those players outside the program to the end of the earth. But that doesn't mean that she's going to give them an inch when they're in her. Jim staley has also become one of the more outspoken coaches and all of college basketball and josh recently wrote that quote staley. Mary's attributes that many have decided are incompatible. What did you mean by that. Well she's just fascinating to me because she is a black woman in the state of south carolina who has been pretty clear that she's not donald trump supporter. This is a state that voted for donald trump. So she's really walking a fine line there when she's got a lot of fans in a red state and she's pretty blue person but she's also shares a very strong christian faith with most south carolinians. She has been outspoken about police. Brutality inequality in the policing system at the same time. She's a special deputy at the rich county sheriff's office. She regularly rides armed with rich. County sheriff's deputies on their patrols. I do think that's relatable the coaches like some of the things that they do the de-escalate or tactics they use is relatable to deal with every day. Leon lot longtime sheriff of richland county said to me. If she wasn't a basketball coach she'd be a cop. She's just got that demeanor. Help people i mean. And that's what law enforcement should be about is about helping people and she wants to know people. She has a gift to gab. She can talk. Do you have to have good communications. Feel today law enforcement officer. She has that so you can't put her in a box and that's fascinating to me. How do you think she navigates. Straddling all of those worlds. She said to me that she is not stressed. I can't be anybody but me but at the same time you know. Most people here at south carolina in south carolina. Accept me for who. I am and i'm good with that and i'm good the ones that don't but i don't think there's a grand plan. I don't think she has an outline. I think she takes every interaction every moment and she deals with it very reflexively face what you could teach me something you can over me up to see things a little bit differently then. She's not a person who will not listen to somebody who has a different opinion. She says she craves hearing those different opinions. As long as the conversations can be respectful and stay within certain bounds. She wants that to happen. I can foresee a day where dawn staley is sitting in the middle of colonial life. Arena in the court at a podium and just taking questions from tons of people in the audience. Who don't agree with her on anything politically or socially. I think she would love that. I think she wants that stuff. But i don't think this is part of a bigger plan. I think she just deal with it from her. Core and then goes to the next day. Does the same
South Carolina Coach Dawn Staley on upcoming SEC Tournament game against Alabama
"And we walk you back. The second half of the program is live and we always enjoy chatting with coach dawn staley as her team about to make their entrance into the the women's tournament in greenville coached. First of all great to have you on and it's always it's always a of our great pleasure to say hello to you. How are you. Hey how you doing i. I had to chuckle reading an article about you the other day about you speaking out and i'm thinking i can't believe dawn. Staley was speaking out about something. Can't well you you you. You gotta keep people on at times. Not all the time. At time i'll come back to the second. But i mean this is. This is the biggest time of the year for women's basketball the conference tournament. Then we move on to the ncwa. So i know you were probably a little disappointed about sunday. But how do you feel about your team. And and what's ahead. I mean. I feel real good. This team has been Dish really trying to find his identity. I know we. We won a lot of basketball games. And we probably lost a lot of basketball games from what we've done in the past But there they still have a thirst for learning and you know they they. They compete hard every day in practice. You know i it they they don't play from a place of you know what with me. They played from a place of what's next. How we how do we get better. What do we need to do. let's do it so we haven't played our best basketball to this day but i do feel like it's coming and i'm hoping you know we we show up show out on friday and it leaves the us continuing the wind throughout the weekend. You'll play tomorrow night at six against missouri alabama game winner. Certainly you're used to playing late into the conference tournament. How do you view this week. As opposed to next week in terms of getting ready for the tournament you've had such success. She won the national championship. You've had Great runs in the tournament. H- what am i know. You wanna win. That's obvious but how do you try to use the sec tournament to to help your team get ready. I'm a great simulator for Win or go home and if you go home earlier than Sunday afternoon And you have to your home and you're watching the two semi finals or the finals It it's a lonely place to be and it's not a very cool feeling and when we had to do it it was. It was an awful feeling. And you know i none of our players right now. You have have experienced that but from last year none of our younger players have experienced that in and we hope that they can keep that that innocence about being in a tournament setting and winning
Chargers turn to Rams DC Staley as new coach
"In the NFL Head coaching Carousel, a couple of hires made here in the last hour. Reportedly, the Chargers have hired Rams defensive coordinator Brandon Staley as their new head coach. He doesn't even have to leave l A so great, great good for him. He doesn't even have the moving costs. The Lions Expected to hire Saint's assistant Dan Campbell's so Del that leaves the number of minority NFL head coaches at four. If you know if the Texans go in a In a different
Philadelphia Eagles head coaching search tracker
"Cody. Thanks for coming back on. I in the enemy man. How are you. I'm doing great great to be with you. I'm excited to talk some football absolutely and let's jump right in to the eagles. Coaching search here. Because more names get added to this list everyday to say that the eagles have cast a wide net would be understating it a little bit. You tweeted out. And i think it was either yesterday or today but as a recording. This on the fourteenth is was on the thirteenth. You tweeted out a whole list of names. We've got carolina offensive coordinator. Joe brady tennis offensive coordinator arthur smith san francisco defensive coordinator robert soleil tampa bay defensive coordinator. Todd bowles new england linebackers coach. John mayo kansas city quarterbacks coach mike kafka philadelphia assistant head coach do staley oklahoma head coach lincoln riley ohio state head coach ryan day. Cincinnati head. Coach luke fickle and more are coming each and every day and i know among eagles fans. You know we see this as a pretty dysfunctional team right now. We see this as an organization. That doesn't seem to know exactly what they're doing and we're skeptical as to whether or not a a really high profile coach is going to want to come here given the list of names here. Where are you at on this eagles. Coaching search as there really are just getting started right. Now yeah and we saw it just kellen more added today and obviously you know they're going to continue to cast the net and i think just in general. I think there's a little merit to the idea that you know when you compare openings. The eagles aren't A bursting with attraction just because of the situation. I mean Doug peterson clearly. If the reports are to be believed is is kind of worn down from from this run with eagles. And but i honestly don't put too much stock into this idea that they're undesirable because at the end of the day there's thirty two jobs. There's thirty two head. Coaching jobs in the nfl. We see guys in view with with teams like the jets and the jaguars every coaching cycle. Yes they sometimes have high picks so they sometimes have a lot of cap space but at the end of the day. It's nfl fell head coaching job. You can't tell me you know if you're joe brady and you're getting interest from all these teams. I mean you're not going to just not going to turn down the opportunity and so And eventually some of the spots are gonna get filled For me i mean i. I start for the eagles with looking at the offensive side of the ball. I know that's it's a big talking point. Jeffrey lurie with with you know really any eagles fan. That's been under or watching. Jeffey larry hires run. The team I i think really it comes down to are you going for You're gonna have to sacrifice somewhere. Because with somebody like joe brady even kellen moore. You're really banking on them. Being kind of an offensive mastermind and up and coming mastermind as opposed to this Person who's been around the league for years and respected and you know doug peterson even though he didn't have head coaching experience. Jeffrey loria himself talked about that emotional intelligence he talked about. Doug peterson former quarterback. In this league he had time under andy reid and so i. I think it's just a matter of where are they gonna sacrifice. Because if they go with robert. Sal the forty niners you're sacrificing. You might bring in a nice offensive coordinator with them but he may leave here for another head coaching job. And so what do they want. We're gonna find out.
Facebook Dialogue Platform with Stephen Roller
"Stephen Roller welcome to the show. Thanks for having me. You work on dialogue research at facebook dialogue research. I. Think of as a better way of describing chat bots. So I may refer to chat bots and Dialogue Research interchangeably during this episode. Why are chat bots useful? I think it's a longstanding dream in the field of artificial intelligence and computer science. Right? We've we've always had the dream of what if I just talked to my computer like I talked to other people. In converse with them, they would know what are my intentions? Why am I asking them this? What can they do to make my life better or help me along and you know? Programming is fun I love programming, but you know it'd be nice to just communicate with. Computers as well. And what about you? Personally, why are you personally interested in chat bots? Have you pursued this line of work of of all the different kinds of computer science research you could be doing? Yeah. You know I sort of stumbled into this area join fair after my phd where I did work in natural language processing but my my work, my background work was like a little bit more linguistically oriented focused on like the meanings of words a little bit more like what can computers just about language rather than how do we teach computers to understand language? And so you know when I joined. Fair. I was looking for for projects to join projects to collaborate on. So I gave dialogue a shot and it turns out to be a really great ren for me a mix of novel research using using the greatest and latest neural networking and machine learning techniques as well as a bunch of interesting software engineering problems and opportunities for Staley and things like this. What are the domains in which conversational agents or chat bots are actually useful today? What are the places where they're useful versus the places where they're not so useful? Meaning like, what's the? What did they do major? We've actually conquered rather than the ones we're stumbling. Yeah I think you know obviously, you've seen a wave of digital assistance and I think that work is very exciting. a lot of what we focused on in dial in par lay in the dialogue research at facebook is on open domain chat bots, which are chat bots that can talk to you about like literally anything and they're usually not focused on. Accomplishing tasks for you rather like the goal is just to have a conversation with you about anything for as long as possible. So that's primarily where we work and I think we've seen a lot of exciting advances over the past couple years to where I think if you were to try some of these newer chat bots that have come out in the past year you, you'd probably be really impressed with like Oh. Wow. This was further than I. Expect. So I think you see commercially is a lot of digital assistants a lot of success in this a lot of customer service type things when I'm really excited about when I think we've you know where things have made big strides in an big strides in the past year is on these open domain chat bots can actually talk to you about anything. Really so as in I can sit down with a chap today and say, Hey, what's the weather and what is this spot on my skin and recommend me a restaurant that looks appealing. I can do I can ask all of these things of a chat bot today. Yeah. I would put those still in the category of like task oriented Tech Chat bots where there's like some goal in mind like you know answering medical questions or tell me about the. Weather when I really tend to work on and what I'm excited about is these chat bots right so rather instead you might ask what's your favorite chess move and it might go into into detail about like what's its favorite move and why that is or what's your opinion of the fall of the Roman. Empire let's let's debate that. So it's it's it's less about you know what can you do for Maine and more about like let's enjoy the experience together. So, can you give a few more descriptions of what a general purpose chat Bot would be doing? Yeah I think the end game here either. You know wear a true general purpose chapman should do both of these things right? Like if I ask it to to. But Mia, calendar and by then it should absolutely help me out with that where I focused my research is the social part. and. So I think we should see a mix of. The box that we've been developing really focused on I'm having a few different behaviors that I don't think you tend to see any sort of assistant on type chat bots they have consistent persona so they'll have like personalities like. I love basketball or I have. Friends in in the tech industry or something like this, and they can use this information like. Consistently referred to it. You know one of the other attributes that chat bots working on developing and believe Ms really important is empathy bright. So a chat Bot should understand you know as as it's talking with you, what's your mental state like how are you feeling and respond emotionally appropriately to that so no if you say something like my just ran away, you know the chat bots should restall on appropriately with something like, oh, I'm really sorry to hear that have. You say something like I just got a promotion than the Chat Bot should respond Oh. That's great to hear. Congratulations. So responding emotionally appropriately is a really important characteristic of a of an open domain chap on the last one is general knowledge. So you know I think when people talk to to chat bots, they expected to know things about the world some of that's encyclopedia some of its common commonsense reasoning but you know if I ask what's the tallest building in America? You know I sort of expected to be able to have this have this information available to it and be able to answer some questions like that or even integrate this information in in common and common dialogue just oh by the way you know what's what's interesting or you know funny story about that sort of thinks. So consistent personality empathy and a knowledge about the world. These are all things. I think are really important in general demand. You know Geno Purpose Chat Bot. Empathy you mentioned empathy s one of these things that requires some maintenance of context as to what is going on in the conversation. The Chat Bot needs to be able to acknowledge the perhaps sad state or happy state of the person. It's Inter locating with tell me about context how does a Chat Bot retain and understand context in a conversation? Yeah there's a few different ways that people go about it. So one of the more classic ways that people will do and approaches that people will take is they'll do something off dialogue state tracking. So you have like some information about the dialogue like, Oh, the users asking about a restaurant and they wanted to be on fifth street right and you'll have this as some sort of state. That you could do say like some sort of database query about and help them then like when you're doing dialogue research or billion Chapa, the task becomes a lot of like keeping track of that state and updating that state as the conversation goes on. The way that we often approach it is a much more like role neural network fashion. So we just like input all the dialogue context all history as one big stream. You know sort of same person. One said this person to says that person one said this person to said back? What do you say next? So we just treat things as as raw strings and habit. Input that in the model has to figure out Oh, what do we do with fat? How do I respond? Who said what all this has to be from scratch? I'd like to get into. A little bit more of a conversation about facebook. So if you imagined facebook in five years, what are the tasks that you envision dialogue models fulfilling for facebook? That's an excellent question I. Think you know there's all sorts of places where we're dialogue can be helpful to our users. We already have this product called portal. which is a a really excellent product lets you make video calls with people. In. One of the things you can you can do, you can already say like hey. You know call mom. And it starts dialing up on. And that super? Nice, you know some of the other things might be no. As I might have an assistant on on Messenger that that's helping me keep track of what's going what's going on with my friends. You know I might say a assistant you know where the latest updates on my friends and they could. Integrate that information. And you know look through my my news feed for me and say, Oh, Hey, your friend Jim has new photo. He got married right Oh that'd be really cool. So, I think there's a lot of places for for dialogue to be part of FACEBOOK PRODUCTS You work on par lay, which is spelled P. A. R. L. A.. I. What Is Parlay? Parlay is a platform for doing dialogue research. It's an open source platform. It's gotten over one hundred contributors and it's it's got you would need to do to dialogue research so whether that's a collect data set or I want to train a new model, and there's all these data sets out there and I just WANNA use those without without trying anything. I want to create a new new model and I need to compare two baselines compared to other other approaches of people tried before I can just sort try those those different models. It's got a model. Do you know what are the pre-trade models somebody else's released in leverage those when building minute chat? Bot and then it's got everything you will need. To also evaluate a chat, Bot. So you know once you have Chapada unlike a lot of areas in I research it's it's not always clear how to evaluated except the have people talk to it. So we've got all the tools that you need to connector Chapada, Amazon Mechanical Turk and have people chat with it and you give evaluations or give. Performance rating instincts like this. A little bit deeper into the problems that parlay solves for researchers that are using it. Yeah I think quite a few different problems especially in all those all those different spaces you know when you're you're a researcher and you want to create a new data set that you know, let's say you want to create a new data said that teaches the model how to how to have empathy. The thing you're going to do is have humans talk and exhibit empathy and annotate their their their utterances with this sort empathetic information. So we have tools so that you can like creek quickly spin up user interface where you can have that chat where you can annotate that information and sort of build what you need for that. So similarly with evaluation you know I need to connect with the Amazon Mechanical Turk and had people evaluate. You know I don't WanNa have to spend so much time focused on building the UI of this tool or dealing with the engineering of connecting Amazon Mechanical Turk impairing humans together, I. So abstract way from you and when we do that is by treating all. In the in the world as agents so whether you're a data set or Talking to it on Mechanical Turk or human talking to it at your local keyboard or a AI agent everything is agent. So we treat them all the same. This gives us really nice distractions to work with so that we can sort of plug in AI model in place of a human or plug human in place of the model really easily. Parlay makes available a wide set of data sets through its API. How does parley use these different data sets? Yeah, we have over one hundred data sets in parlay. Some of them are from our group some of them are from external groups. And so one of the things we really focus on as a first class feature in. If I want to train the AI that exhibits multiple behaviors. I'm a train, a multiple data sets at the same time. So you it's really easy to sort of say. Okay. That set a data set the set see in start training three of them at the same time and get a model that can do all three of these behaviors on. So that's sort of first class functionality within within parlay. When we were talking earlier about having a model that exhibited the consistent personality empathy in knowledge, we did this with a sort of multitask training as it's called where we train on all different data sets. So if you're a new user or new researcher who wants to come into dialogue, you can sort of take the stock wouldn't data sets out there already and just start utilizing them as needed and if you wanna mix and match behaviors? Hey, no problem. described. The workflow for training chat with parlay. Yeah. So we have a lot of it's very command line, heavy utility or command line heavy platform. So if you want to train a new model, it can be as simple as calling the train model command from the command line and you just sort of say are here the tasks I want here's the model. The model that I want what's the model architecture and things like this? And you know here's the learning rate and all the other neural network parameters and you hit go and start training. alanna researchers went to do a more sophisticated, maybe make a custom architecture or make a custom data set and it's really easy to just sort of build only the part of the data set you need or build only the what's special about your model. She might go right a little bit of custom code utilizing are sort of abstract base classes and things like this. And you'll be off on your way training, your special model, and if you don't WanNa mess with data, you don't have to mess with data you can just use the existing data sets. If you don't WanNa mess for modeling, you don't have the mess with modeling you can just just the data in and start training

Breaking down Trent Williams' trade to the 49ers
"Trent Williams dealt from the Redskins to the forty Niners for five today in a three next year and we're breaking it down as you just heard the guys drafted by Kyle Shanahan and Trent Williams is a talented guy and if you look at the forty niner list of to do list today are coming into this traffic should say replacement for Buckner check can log the impact wide receiver who can start opposite Deebo Samuel check brand in the UK left tackle replacement for Joe Staley check Trent Williams would yes thanks I I I mean it it's it's it's it's pretty awesome I mean I I'd be it can't be that simple I mean can you just can you just go in the draft in in it that you would think is what you're supposed to do you you you you talk about the team that you know the one that wins the NFC west you go to the Super Bowl you miss the Superbowl basically by one play and and and you want to get better and I think after the Superbowl in after free agency you you start thinking whether the team is not as good as they used to be I think if you look at the team now I mean you would have to think that you know they are as good or better then they were going to the Superbowl yeah I I mean you only hold off on saying that is because we haven't seen this combination of guys play together yet put Trent Williams is a like I just got a text from our buddy Kevin Francis a good pick great pick
Making of a CRISPR Film: Behind the Scenes with Producers of Human Nature
"Highly one. Welcome to crisper cuts. I'm super excited about today's episode because today via celebrities on our show yesterday said I goodwin Elliott Kirschner their producers of the human nature. Movie for those of you. Who Don't know what this movie is about. It basically covers jody of crispell onto joining us today on. This show is given Holden head of science at San Diego. So this is GonNa be a great episode all adjoining Menu Today on the Chris Cast so as me as well food we get started. Can you just introduce yourself and give your background before you became producers of this movie? My name is Sara Goodwin producer at Pfizer. My background action is in Science. I teach the UCS and the I turned into a science communicator. Joining and leading an organization about project called I biology which has an initiative area cocoa butter collaborates at produced. This felt and so that's how I got. Involved Elliott leaks elected project to it which is great blog. Si- thank you. I'm Elliot Kirschner. So I came to this project after many years working in news and documentary film back shake round side poverty the scientists but I really sort of more general reporting but it was always interested in telling the stories of science while find ways those little bobble and interesting ways that could challenge conventional wisdom's sites. Could be and so. We were looking for a topic to really make a big film to just tell an important story in ways that we would be different end. Hopefully engage audiences in new ways. And so I've secret spurs such huge story touches almost every aspect of the biomedical sciences but also exchanging meaning Dmitri society all that so when we decided on this topic we really washed and built a team of filmmakers and scientists together to make a documentary. That sounds great. So basically you kind of briefly mentioned how the idea of doing a film on crisper about but still there seems to be a lot that needs to be figured out. Even you know what basic topic you're going far. So can you tell us a little bit about behind the scenes of how you decided you know right right makes off researchers and patients and how the story would flow and not just make it like a scientific presentation but more like a movie by itself that we knew going in we want it to be so and we know it to be a story that would appeal to a general audience so that was the directive from the very beginning. We didn't WANNA make quote unquote educational video. We also wanted to make something that felt cinematic. I mean there's a wonderful rich history. A science explainer television that kind of stuff that people any think tank stock entries the short length of one hour television affair with a heavy raider voice. That kind of thing as well. That wanted to do something that would play on a big screen. That would make the decision. We didn't want it narrator. We wanted to let the scientists speak for themselves. Who wanted to film this with a cinematic spoke? Mind musical score all that we WANNA make a film so that was sort of the original directive that we give to ourselves once we got there. The question was okay. What is a science film there if you go to sundance or we premiered at South by southwest or the major some festivals. It's not like there's a lot of science programming a lot of science documentary and so we sort of had a lot of leeway. What is modern science stone-built look like but that's when the decision making came in about what the style would be. But as for the substance we also knew we wanted to work with the very beginning to sort of develop a story line or story lines that were true to the Science. Not only the facts of the science but the ethos of science idea. What is scientific discovery? How how did serendipity and the search for knowledge or basic research play into the story and then what are. These are more broader societal issues so those are all pieces together but I think one of the key things early on we had a meeting at woods hole. Report the film team. And we brought in George Church George Staley Jennifer Dowd Or All your own rights leaders in this field and we just had the two days of brainstorming about what they thought the story was and where they thought the scientists building and that really sort of helped direct the editorial in obviously Sarah being trained scientists being on this very beginning really helped shape bet as iterative throughout the process and this this film many many different forms over the course of its production as we try to tease out what science metric would be. And I'd say one thing that was really. It's worked to us from the beginning to make sure we told the story of the discovery of crisper and turning crisper to technology which is a story. That's off the told when crisper is talked about because it's actually a fascinating basic science research story of we really wanted to show. Elliot said you know how the process of sites works. How knowledge is created. And so as a scientist you know is able to really go back to the literature. I read you know as much primary literature as I could around the crisper discovery. And he's together as best they could also used reviews that were out there. This summit really helped a lot but it really helped us kind of have a deep understanding of the steps that it took to really understand what crisper was and decide who we wanted to interview might actually ended up interviewing or people than even made it into the cell because they were hardest story. But you know at the end of the day we wanted to have a film that was around ninety minutes of you. Just can't include everything that you want to. And so that was interesting viewpoint. Make us a kind of behind the scenes. Look when we were editing as to what should be in on should be out especially for me coming more from the science side of things which dirt's look really vital to have Sarah's voice project I think that was one of the real unique elements that we we built into the production framework in that throughout the discussion of who'd interview with talk about what's the balanced bill. There was constant discussion between still making team and science group that were just challenging our own assumptions pushing in different ways and I think that dynamic process really led to its own that is it relates that scientists in a way that it's not just about what we say on exerts absolutely right. We tried to all the Discovery Story. But just the way the scientists are allowed to speak the decisions made about what to include what not to include. I mean this was really dictated throughout by I think very nuanced understanding of how science works and I think that that hopefully shines through that when scientists watch at the dotted understand world and. I think that that is is really important to try to convey in film the impression of Palestine Science work as well as the actual facts over trying to convey right. Yeah absolutely does shine through. I love the myself so they can thank you. I just wanted to ask you guys. So I'm sorry. You mentioned some of the people that you interviewed for the film curious. Do you have any particular anecdotes funny or like most surprising moments came out through so making process in the interviews. People talk about a great question. I mean I'd say the first thing that comes to mind is actually what a treat it was to be Cisco he goes. Who's early crisper researcher at the University Valid? Kante got to go to Spain and meet him and be in his lab and he showed us a lot of Israeli shells. Found THE REPEATS. A very special time to be serving. Someone who usually isn't spoken about when Christopher is talked about but in general like say what was a real treat for me as a scientist is a lot of the people he's interviewed. I L about their science at baby. Give a research talk. But I've never really got to hear them talk about kind of the more ethical. Societal implications of the crisper work and Atta did most interviewing I think did a wonderful job really probing people trying to get you know. They're on his thoughts on something as science discovery. That is really going to have an impact in so many different ways throughout the world to end the scientists were really wonderful in be sharing their thoughts with us. I think you know included a lot of that on. I think makes a lot richer because it shows how scientists are people to beat other families. They have a lot of thoughts about how science works and technology is used and it was really nice to be able to hear a lot of that and then of course you know getting these really wonderful. I mean so make it of course offered was a key researcher for comment DNA. Which is the topic we cut off. But you were going to go much forgotten. Just cut it Due to time and really trying to make the story as clear as possible but he's just just a wonderful person and getting to meet him was just a really special
