Fresh update on "texas tech" discussed on Sports Talk with Jason and Ed
"I think that's kind of where the game is evolved to. I mean, Steph Curry really changed the game and you can see on fast breaks an MBA Now they're not looking for the easy lay out there looking for a while for three years, So you know, I think with all the analytics and They the the numbers around the percentages and in three point people shouldn't about 40% in three point line and 50 plus percent on the two point line. They're starting to see that the three points more valuable at this point, but You know, I do think that the game is, you know I've been Wallace won't survive in the lead in the league like that anymore. It's you really kind of have to be a multi versatile player. I mean, you've got to be able to take the ball inside and you gotta be able to Moomba Baylor shoot the three ball from the outside. So you know, it's just I mean, I watched his games now and there's really not so much inside presence anymore. You can't really think of a giant big man in college right now. That's really doesn't do it all. You got to do a lot of things in pro basketball kind like your buddy P. J. Tucker, who's still in the league. Exactly that dude complaint. The two to the five. I mean, the guys, you know, he fits the need for teams that one play small ball and and he fits the need for guys that needed tough defender So You know, guys like PJ there in between. Hers will be successful because they can, you know, kind of fit in where they can. But you know these big man, It's just, you know, I had unfortunate year with Chris Apple genius and I was kind of shocked when I went out and watched him warm up and kind of get practicing, and that coaches and Stan had him playing the three. I was like, Man, that guy's 71 like he needs to be out mean you need to be down low and No. I just think you know, with evolution of the big man. They can really do it all now. So it Zim Precedent. Watch guys their size. Take it off the dribble and shoot the three. Now you're on the water. Just hired a new coach. Chris Beard. Brad. What? Your initial thoughts on the guy. Have you had any time to spend with them on? What do you think the future holds for Texas right now. I'm really excited man. To be honest with you. I was hoping to get Chris Beard but I was really pulling from my boy Royal Ivey. I mean, I think you know you watch Join Howard and Michigan and Hook Look Steve Nash it at Brookline, Thies former players that turn into coach coaches, I think are something of the future, but, you know, crispier. Its track record, obviously took A team like Texas Tech to the finals. Um, he's got a great track record. He's got Texas roots, which always goes a long way for for fans and alumni. But you know his system, the coaches, the specific coaches around him, You know, being a Texas having the name Texas across your chest recruiting guys that we need. T O get Texas back to where we belong. I think Chris peers the right man for the job, and I'm really excited for the future of Texas basketball. Obviously, the new arena coming in and two years um we're really kind of Give us a more clouds and some excitement going into the building of the future seasons. But Chris peers, right hire coach Ronnie Terry's joined the assistant coach and obviously got Chrysostom by former teammate back on the on the staff as well, Brad. Thank you so much for the vision. Thanks for being on the show. Best to the family, and we will talk to you soon, buddy. Thanks so much for being with us on Kayla, because I talk with you both. Thanks, Brad. Bye Bye. Now.

NCAA Tournament East Preview
"Welcome to coincide with greenberg dockage in the south bracket where the number one seed is. Bela number two seaters iowa states. Let's get right into it. John gallagher wild and i like john gallagher. Head coach at hartford neighborhood. Man the neighborhood who here west hartford the neighborhood as the ultimate philly guy. John gallagher is the ultimate dilly guy. I've already got the text from. I've spoken is tipped off banquet a year ago. The dude is certifiably insane in a good way. What he no one is going to enjoy the ncaa tournament more than it. So as soon as they won they immediately went to indianapolis and starts to quarantine and have experienced john. Enjoy it. we're gonna say nice things about you. You're a good guy. And ballard dance so nokes no trepidation about baylor's performance against oklahoma state. Oklahoma states really good people are losing their mind. What at at baylor games. They're playing in the big twelve. They're not planning west coast conference. You're playing in the big twelve. You're planning against other teams that have good players. You're gonna lose games all right. The next game is interesting. Opening round games wisconsin. Why i think he's just not right against north carolina who depending on the day is not right. I mean real simple carolina. You can take care of the ball. Are you gonna make your shot if you take care of the ball and at least get shots up. Then you have an advantage. Except that as we know wisconsin wisconsin's analytics over. Like if you just look at their analytics you would think they'd win every game. They don't give up second shots that will turn it over. They get pretty good shots but they don't play winning basketball. I know that sounds weird. But there's something not right. I think carolina find a way to win that game except the carolina. Jecklin hide reminds of this game. Would you like i like carolina. And this and i look whatever's happened to nate rivers whether it's kobe whether it's whatever it just hasn't been good. I expected more out of him. They don't run their stop nearly as well as they didn't pass they rely too much on one. And frankly they're not a one on one team. And you know what would those big garrison brooks bay. Come and all and bacon's and everybody else you can get into wisconsin. Guards make them drivers into traffic. I think this is a pretty good match up for north carolina. I just think they're better. And i think they're going to win the basketball game and i think they're going to win it fairly big. So if you wanna bet on a game this probably going to have tyke spread. That's gonna move it out a little bit. I think this is the game i think. North carolina wins by double digits. All right to winter is the sexy upset. eco nova plant without conquests. Be justin moore play the other day but wasn't good. They started the set a little bit. You know this is. This is a winter key. May play really fast. I've got a low post lower burns at play him about fifty minutes game. he's really productive. Obviously they got a very good camera. Badran the big six seven kind of point guard because they run the show through a tuck this about. They're extremely aggressive. Pat kelsey really likeable dude. Winter months play fast was gonna try to get into half court who you like. Well i i agree with everything you said. I think winter got a hell of a team. But if this was any other organization other than j j rights organization i would say the winthrop's gonna win the basketball game but you still have robinson hurl. You still have samuels. And if healthy justin moore. You've got three guys. You've got the best three guys on the court. And that always bodes. Well now the point guard situation okay. It is what it is. We all know that point guards at villanova stuff are important. It is the sexy. Pick the five twelve upset all that kind of stuff. But i'm not betting against jay wright and his organisation they just seem to overcome things that need to be overcome when they need to be overcome. I great i agree all right. So now this is an interesting north texas by gurus helmi north texas guards. The crap you absolutely flat can guard you an elite defensive team. They put great pressure notable they then eyeball reversal on play. Two man game with javon Handle it let the point guard and that they are really really good solid defensive team. They turn people over there really aggressive. But you've seen teams like that. Purdue doesn't beat themselves. You pretty has probably i i do. I think this is going to be right down to the wire south because what. I've talked to people today actually. Starting last night couple guys. I was surprised. North texas beat western kentucky. Not because i knew anything about no taxes. But because i saw western kentucky for three games and and they're really good athletic on the wing. Strong tough. I think what you said about the all of the defense bits. Dramatically bad against purdue get up into. They're not the quickest. Get shot team jay nineties really the only one that can i think this is going to be. I'm going to bet against purdue because i think produce offensive analytics put them in the top ten. But nobody's really pressured purdue nobody's really got into them and under wings. Don't take this game for granted. North texas is going to cover whatever the point spread is pretty wins. It the end. Are you got another big time. Texas tech utah state and utah state. Pounds that thing in pain name is cadence a big physical that play a four round. One run actually pretty good motion and so pretty good actions to me. The kid just being an interesting precedent. Don't shoot it as well as they happen to pass but they really defend the top five rebounding They're a very good offensive antiques. Keta against texas tech doesn't have a legitimate big tonight. I mean or cassette said
States drop COVID-19 mask mandates but still expect people to mask up
"Texas governor Greg Abbott, is dropping the state's mask mandates enacted during the pandemic. Starting today, businesses, including restaurants can operate at full capacity without restrictions from Texas Tech public media Sara Self wall Brick has more. A lot of people think that it's too soon to not require mask but Others insist that wearing a mask should be a personal decision and not a matter of public policy. So the governor's new order INS mandates that had been in place since last summer at it insists there are fewer people in hospitals and more people getting vaccinated. But it is worth noting that vaccinations air taking place at a much slower rate than elsewhere in the country. Sarah Self Walberg
Texas Lifts Its State-Wide Mask Mandate, Some Businesses Disagree
"As of today. Texans are no longer required to wear a mask. In public businesses restaurants included canal. Operate at full capacity without restrictions governor greg. Abbott announced the change last week. Despite objections from public health officials sarah self walbrook of texas tech public media joins us now to talk about the change in policy. Hi sarah good morning. I just explain how bad the covert situation is in texas right now. Yes the governor's new order ins mandates that had been in place since last summer at least somewhat helped texas. Is kobe situation. Abbott insisted there are fewer people in hospitals now and more people getting vaccinated although it is worth noting that vaccinations are taking place at a much slower rate than elsewhere in the country Texans are really split on whether the mask requirement should continue many think. It's too soon to not require masks but others say that wearing masks should be a personal decision and not a matter of public policy so now that there are no state restrictions on this it becomes a local issue right so howard different cities and counties responding one example. We've seen so far. I mean austin a local public health ordinance was established. Yesterday that will still require mask. Wearing the governor's executive orders specifically prohibits cities and counties from doing that. But austin city council in health authority found a loophole that they think allows them to no word yet on how the governor or other cities and counties will respond. What about schools. How how does this change schools. The texas education agency has allowed school board to decide what works best for their districts We've seen a handful that have ruled that mass will no longer be required but most districts are keeping their current rules in place through the spring governor. Abbott made his announcement last week at a mexican restaurant in lubbock. Which is where you are heard. You checked in on how that restaurant is planning to respond to the new policy. Which you learn. I did so. Owner rudy. told me yesterday that when he agreed to host the governor last week at his restaurant montelongo does. He did not know exactly what the governor was there to announce he had expected business capacity limits to be lifted but he was just as surprised as everyone. When the governor ended the mask mandate roselle has decided not to change how he does business so he's keeping his restaurant at about fifty percent capacity and will continue to require employees and customers to wear masks. He said it's up to each individual business and each person the responsibility for their health so really. This variety of responses is exactly what the governor intended with this new order. Sara self walbrook of texas tech public media. Sarah thanks thank you

Texas governor lifts mask mandate and allows businesses to open at 100% capacity, despite health officials' warnings
"Texas Governor Greg Abbott is ending coronavirus restrictions in his state. He announced this at a restaurant in Lubbock, where he also said businesses should reopen a week from today, Quote 100%. Now this is exactly what the CDC has said not to do and these public health measures early. Sarah self Wall Brick is a senior. Order a Texas tech public media and she was there covering the announcement. Hi, Sarah. Good morning. Practically What does this mean for Texans? So governor, Abbott said that starting next week, businesses will be able to open it. Full capacity and mass will no longer be required. He says he wants businesses and other entities to make those decisions. So, for example, supermarket chain H E B has already announced that they won't require customers to wear masks in their stores. So Abbott says, people should still do. It protects them. Right eye's rescinding the statewide mandate. So here's what he had to say yesterday. Personal vigilance to follow the safe standards is still needed to contain covet. It's just that now, state mandates are no longer needed. But did he explain why now? Dad, is it just that things are looking up across Texas at least when it comes to co vid hospitalizations air down even in regions like Laredo, and I'll Passo that have seen the worst of it. Vaccinations have gotten off to a really slow start here. Texas is obviously a big populous state, but less than 7% of the population is fully vaccinated right now, which is one of the lowest percentage is in the country. So you have mixed news case is going down, but vaccinations going slowly. How are people reacting to abbots announcement? It's definitely been mixed. So based on what I've seen on social media, I think a lot of people see this is a political move, especially after the fall out of the winter storm that thousands of Texans are still dealing with. I talked with a few lobby guides after the announcement yesterday because the mask me a date wasn't well enforced anyway. Dr. Craig Ryan with Covenant Health says We're sending the mask order may not do much. And he hopes that common sense prevails. I think that the people that have grown accustomed to wearing a mask and have gotten a sense of safety and security from wearing a mask will probably continue to do exactly that. Chris Bury owns a local restaurant is president of the Loving Restaurant Association. He hopes at its announcement will lead to higher consumer confidence. If everyone feels more comfortable and getting out and going out to eat and getting back to the quote unquote normal life, that's what we're looking forward to, and that's what we anticipated. Okay, That's how many businesses I would imagine might feel, But I'm curious about medical workers. The people who work on the front lines. Did you talk to any of them? I had. So I heard from one woman in particular. Christie Ginza, Who's a nurse practitioner who's been volunteering at Love Eggs, covert vaccination hub. Have a hard time believing the governor is taking advice from medical experts. He's put in labs and our economy at risk yet

Lou Holtz talks Notre Dame and more
"Lua alluded to you as being a builder and again i go back to the interview which you had here in the studio with us and the obvious question from a person when you They asked you about the rumors you going to. Usc and you said usc is one of the three best jobs. And i said wait a minute. I know notre dame is one of the best. What's the third best job. And you said the one that i get and it turned out to be usc but the university of south carolina. And and i'm just wondering when you reflect back about taking over that program. Why did you take over such a struggling program. And what is it is allowed. Lou holtz everywhere. He has gone to be able to build success. What i foresee a we will not arrive. I think we had three offensive linemen on scholarship is all we had. It did have a quarterback and didn't have a running back to his per se. But you know you grin there you you just you try to fundamental you. Try to do the things that we talked about. Just you know. Build build the football team. And i have gone to six different situations in college and never inherited a winner and went to bow game no later in the second year with matter of fact after going on eleven we finished seventeenth a country next year and beat ohio state in a bowl game following here i think we finished loveth in the country. Beat state again on january one. But it's not because guy it's Coach it's all about the people. If team i mean it's about coaches and players. All all really tried to play their road and believe that you can do something. We read great fan support in south carolina. We were below eligible this year. We'd basically accepted a bowl bid and then of course after a little probably had with trump said in my last football game we decided not to go to a bowl game. I would've liked to vendor micro in a bowl game and yet at the same time within hayes and i'll have the same legacy Last was in clemson was involved. Refer also that's not a great legacy to have necessarily but it's a good football team. Many people coming back in. Like steve spurrier command. And you know he. He's a guy that likes to win. And i think he can win earlier. I believe that in the bud by heart. I think he's an excellent coach. I think the players will respond well to them. And i think we took a the longest losing program the country and took it to a bowl game and he'll take it from there to the championship level when you talk about coaching today And i think about francs being fired after he won nine games and i think about the expectations that go along ty willingham of course sopa but notre dame in his first year wins his first eight and then what has happened to him recently as well. What are the expectations of football coach at a major program today. Well i've been figured that basically very very impatient but you know they. They want instant success. One instant gratification and want to go the top. That the trina goes to the university of louisville inherits a very very good football team. From coach smith went onto michigan state. Now goes between things that a tremendous job but You know feel air. And he has those great athletes. They have great success. Urban meyer. who. I hired at university of notre dame you know he goes to Utah has instant success and everybody sitting there saying well. Hey he can do it let. Let's go get that guy that can do it here that we can win immediately will You know having code having smith there your quarterback as a pretty good asset to have it set about where somebody also had success. And i am sure they they look at it and say well gee they came in and they were down and all of a sudden they one. That's what we want to do and everybody all the fans wanted to two things who's going to be the new coach and he will be the next quarterback i. It's unbelievable i. i don't care you. You want to become unpopular to hurry. Go for being the second team quarterback to the i team the anything too is if you think about it and i was thinking about notre dame just the other day what should be their expectation level and i know the obvious as well to win championships but if you look at the landscape of football today lou there's a lot of teams that are able to get outstanding athletes that don't have the same requirements to get maybe to get into school There's a lot of schools have reputations of putting players into the pros and what have you so having said all of that. What should be the expectation at notre dame today as far as their season and their teams year in year out when further. Joyce hired may at the university of notre dame. He said. I wanna talk to you about a couple of things. Basically not negotiable. These are not negotiable university. Notre dame we are need understand. This now isn't even before i was ever offered the job at you. Know we we. We will not redshirt. We will not take transfer from junior. College will not take a transfer from another school against need search chain core curriculum classes for years of english. Three years of math through calculus at center players are going to miss practice because of late classes or or or labs or tutors or things along that line. The players are going to live on campus. We are going to have great facilities. You have nothing to do with the discipline but athlete on campus We don't pay a whole lot You're not allowed to president of the university. Notre dame was the rule when say they gave the president rates once that they could give me a raise anyone on all that and he said with the we're expecting to compete for a national championship at least once every three or four years and I didn't find anything wrong with ed. And we did the head it. I think that should be their expectations. Not necessarily this year even next year. But i do think They expect Charlie wise to compete for the national championship. And i think he will. The same things are saying about notre dame they said about whenever procedure went there years ago. They said it. When i was there i remember my first year recruiting at notre dame. My aunt had us fifty eight to sixty year before. I got there in their last football game on national television and You go into a home to recruit a young man that have all these That have all these articles in there. About how Notre dame can't win anymore and the schedules to tough. There's all this. And there's all that. And i just don't believe that i i think you know. The sec schedule's pretty tough When i was at university dame might think at fifty four percent of games ever coach there were against a top twenty five football teams. But that's part of notre dame you play the best you know. We played washington when they're really good. We played tennessee. We played texas We we we played Miami florida played. Florida state You just that's just the way you did it at notre dame and I don't think it's any different now. I might be a little bit down right now but yeah. I think it's going to be fine but lou. Isn't it a little bit different. In the sense. That i used to think of notre dame and you probably going into a home where you know it was. I want this kid. The kid's gonna sign right there. It was like with john wooden at ucla. I mean john recruiting because everybody wanted to come and play for john wooden at ucla during those particular years but now the competition it. It's almost like well. We've got a pro passing program so if you're an outstanding quarterback you're going to go to this score that school i mean isn't the the mystique oh most of notre dame and not to their own detriment or fall but isn't it a little bit perceived differently today might be but i don't think necessarily it should be. I mean on tv every saturday. One time when i said notre dame we had fifty seven players active in the nfl. The next was penn state with thirty nine and third with southern cal with thirty eight But we we had to work hard. Recruit again we. We found uphill struggle. But here's the different. We could go to california and would we went after navigate. It was us usc or ucla. When would end attack between us. Texas tech today and you went into florida as a youth. Florida state miami and florida. You went into nebraska to be between you and the university of nebraska. You could go anywhere in the country and you would have legitimate chance to recruit the best athlete in that state but you would have to use the beat. The home state and you didn't always do that but when they start talking about well. Nfl i want this type of program. Notre dame's not a four year decision. Support here decision. What do you do in your football's over guarantee you're gonna play in the nfl with china education. You'll get what are you gonna learn. And are you going to be better prepared to go in there. You know i was watching Tonight on tv On some sports show where they had the ten major mistake officials made and one of them was grown bettas called tails and the guy said hatch. And i had to laugh because a whole time as notre dame the first thing i said the locker room before the game was we will call tales. We always called. This was a game. But i just think that You're still a forty year decision. Not a four year decision. You talk about the only thing that's going to change it from where you are today to where you'll be five years from now the books you read the people you meet in a dream a dream and the baby. You're gonna meet university in our day and they're going to be the ones that are going to be illness companies and being. Ceo's and they're going to be the leaders that those are the people you're gonna come in contact with and then you get him on campus. Let them talk to your athletes now. The guy that doesn't feel comfortable in that environment isn't gonna get isn't gonna fit well notre dame anyway and now there were always people that didn't want the discipline did want the the challenge. Academically didn't want to have to work that hard on their academics guy that they won't be interested in the university of notre dame necessarily but one thing i used to laugh about was you would read. You would read these top twenty two football players in america. What schools air considered and other day. It'd be listed on about eighteen oven. Maybe seven of them. We were recruiting because we couldn't get in school academically. But they would always put notre dame was one of their schools Florida not because it made them look good so to speak and I think notre dame will get back. I really do because it's a national school a special school. One of the thing that i think is the lou holtz legacy when it comes to football in. It's almost like parenting. In a sense. You mentioned about urban meyer. I think a barry alvarez a host of other coaches you must feel awfully proud of the the legacy of lou holtz from the coaches that went on from underneath year wing onto other programs either as assistance or successful head coaches as well. I've always felt that. I learned this from woody. Hayes have an obligation to prepare your coaches to become head coaches. I'd always explain why we did things and how we did it. the philosophy at center. I think we've made it look simple that everybody would come in and they go. I can do that. I wanna be head coach. But i went down. Visit very alvorada in preparation for the bogue. Gabi speed come down and one time we had about. I don't know maybe a sixty some former graduate assistants were either in major college or professional that had been graduate assistant said many people gone on u. p. care coach for me at the university of arkansas. We we started him out You know monte kiffin coach for him in the defense coordinator tampa bay et cetera. Just you know it's just so many coaches you enjoy it and that's one of the reasons why you wanna talk to me. Now's not because. I prepare them but because of the contribution they made our success but not mind. There's there's their contribution to my success is far greater mike. Entre bution to there's
NBA Mock Draft 3.0
"And we are back talking two thousand twenty mock draft three point o our last mock draft of the year. It's draft day draft morning. What better to unwrap and a mock draft on draft morning. it's the second round. Now now's the time to confess. I'm really terrible at projecting second rounds like you know my hit rate and some drafts has been like one two three picks in the second round. It's it's so hard to keep track of the first round the wheels to sort of come off and these picks happened like every two minutes. I it's hard to really keep track. I did my best. I project where. I think particular players can go. You definitely don't really get deep into this when you're talking the nba scouts in executives about what they're going to do in the second round. They're still trying to figure out the first round as well. So i've tried to find some fits there so this is reported more chad ford speculation. Here about what's happening. The second round starts with the dallas mavericks this pick via the warriors taking malachi. Flynn the san diego state. Junior point guard One of the guys that frankly could go ten spots higher in the draft. I actually really love malachi flynn. There's kind of a lot of point guards kind of later in the first round which may push him out a little bit. But i actually think he's the guy who could step in play right away. I would actually love him in dallas. I think that'd be great. Pick for dallas at thirty one at thirty two. The charlotte hornets are on the board. They're getting this pick via the cavs. Paul read the sophomore forward center out of depaul. Have them going thirty two. This is john. Hollinger's been super high on all year. I think he's another guy who can guard positions on the floor. I really like him. Actually think he brings some stuff offensively as well. I personally like him. Better than precious. I'm right now. Could turn out to be a terrible take. But it's kind of what i think and i definitely think he could be an excellent fit. I'm in charlotte. Especially if they end up with lamelo ball and they're gonna need to add a defensive big man. As part of that package at thirty-three the minnesota timberwolves around the board. This'll be the third pick because they have to. First round picks. Tillman the junior power forward at michigan state. Everybody loves this kid. He's he's one of these guys like high floor. Low ceiling. just does his work every day. Great rebound or plays hard. I'm ken defend going. Bring be a great locker room guy is gonna find some rotation that somewhere I like him in minnesota on a team. That is trying to go forward. I think he actually adds a bit of a veteran presence to the locker room. At thirty four the philadelphia seventy sixers are on the clock. That get this. Pick via the hawks. Isaiah joe the arkansas shooting guard who is one of the best shooters in this draft. Crazy range. High volume of three point shots philadelphia. Always in need shooters. When you're going to be playing. Ben simmons on this team he certainly constructs the floor. And i'd like isaiah joe there them at thirty five the sacramento kings Via the pistons. Dan dotson to kansas sophomore guard. Who is one of the quickest players in the draft. He's an elite score excels off the getting to the basket not a great shooter a bit undersized for his position not really a point guard that's why he slides a few spots higher but could be instant offense off the bench for sacrimento at thirty five at thirty six the philadelphia seventy sixers back on the clock this time via that pick from the mix jordan aura the louisville junior who also is one of the better shooters in this draft. He has good size vers position. Good length i'm not sure exactly what else he brings to the table besides shooting but again i'm just loading philly up i with shooters at the moment at thirty seven. The washington wizards are on the board. They get this pick via the chicago. Bulls tyler bay the junior ford out of colorado who is one of the best athletes in the strath super explosive. Really hard worker on the defensive end still just kinda coming along on the offensive. And then i think that's been a concern. He's he's one of those guys that might be a little bit of a twitter. Not sure exactly what position he plays in the pros that causes him to slide. A few picks in this draft think this is still really value. and by the way when. We're talking about a lot of these guys dotson. Tillman for example malachi flan. These guys could all end up in the first round as well. Just have them the second thirty eight new york knicks via the hornets janis ramsey. The texas tech freshman guard again volume score can shoot it a little bit We're just loading the knicks up now with backward guys that can score the basketball. I'm not sure who's going to defend in new york. But he's an intriguing prospect. He's only nineteen years old. And i certainly there's upside there with the thirtieth pick in the draft at thirty nine the new orleans. Pelicans selecting this pick for the wizards. Daniela touro the minnesota sophomore center. Who had a really really strong summer season one of the more improved players in the country very skilled at big man. I'm great size. Adding just bore skill in size to this pelicans roster i'm at the moment If you remember earlier jalen smith. I'm selected at thirteen at forty. The grizzlies are on the board. This pick via the silence. This is the first pick that the grizzlies have been able to make in the twenty twenty. Nba draft a doco as a bouquet. The kansas center. Big guy seven. Seven wingspan seven footer. Really good athlete actually just dominant player in the pain. Terrible free throw. Shooter doesn't really do anything facing the basket. But when you have that size and length and athleticism. I think you get something done in. The and kind of reminds me deondraye jordan. A little bit and a little bit surprised. He doesn't go higher. I get there seems to be a penalty on the big minner plane or pain. Right now in the draft at forty one san antonio spurs back on the on the board yama dr the israeli guard nineteen year old for hop. Well tel-aviv and you know. He's such an intriguing prospect because he plays his butt off. His incredible energy is just making a difference when he's out there but he's not really a point guard. He's kind of more of a two guard in a point guards body. He's not like a great shooter. I'm athletically he's actually not bad at all but that lack of a jump shot kinda undersized i position that makes him more of a second round prospect at he absolutely wants to leave israel and come to the nba. And if it's the g. league next year and so he could be an interesting prospect for san antonio developed down the road

How Climate Change Is Fueling Hurricanes And Wildfires
"Last week Hurricane Laura made landfall in Louisiana as one of the strongest storms to hit the region in decades to be clear scientists say climate change doesn't cause a weather event, but it is playing a role in increasing the severity of them to understand why we called climate scientists Catherine Heyhoe in a warmer world hurricanes are not getting more frequent, but they are getting stronger they're intensifying faster they're getting bigger and slower, and they have a lot more rainfall associated with them, and they would've fifty or one hundred years ago Heyhoe Co director of the Climate Center at Texas Tech University. She says a warmer world also affects the size of wildfires in. California and elsewhere since the nineteen eighties due to climate change wildfires have burned over twice the area than they would have normally because of course, you get wildfires out west that's just part of life those ecosystems but climate change the great threat multiplier. It's making them worse Professor Heo taking everything into account you just described we also can't ignore that these events are happening during a pandemic. That's already killed more than one hundred and eighty thousand people just in the United States and I wonder is that also what you're talking about when the Department of Defense views climate change describes climate change as a threat multiplier is that part of it as well? It is. So climate change takes issues that we already have that we already care about, and it exacerbates them are makes them worse issues like poverty even age for example, one of my colleagues her parents live in the Houston area they were very concerned about getting in the car and driving you know when when everybody's evacuating, it could take hours to get one hundred miles away because of corona virus. What if they ended up exposing themselves to Corona virus as they drove in for people who are sheltering in shelters typically quite crowded, we are all vulnerable and climate change is exacerbating the risk that we already face today corona virus included. And if you don't mind my raising this, you've written about being a person who considers herself an evangelical. Christian. And you're also a scientists sounding the alarm about climate change. Some Christians. Do seem to see those things in conflict and you just say that this is not true. You say that these two different commitments are actually in harmony. Could you just as briefly as you can just say why you're absolutely right in the United States and that qualifier is very important. The people who are least concerned about climate change are white conservative Protestants and white Catholics but the interesting thing is. That the most concern people in the United States by denomination are Hispanic Catholics, and of course, the Pope Roten encyclical five years ago explaining why climate change is such global issue. So that sort of shows us hey, what's going on here? It turns out when social scientists dig deeper rejecting climate the reality of climate change and the need for climate solutions is exclusively tied to people who have bought into. A right. Wing ideology that somehow this planet doesn't matter but it does it matters to everyone of us if for Christians at the very beginning of the Bible. It talks about how God gave us humans responsibility over every living thing on this planet as well as how we are to care for those less fortunate than us you know the Bible talks about the widows and the orphans and the poor. And today. Those are the very people being most affected by changing climate. So if we take the Bible seriously, we are out at the front of the line demanding climate action, not dragging our feet at the end. All right. That's Catherine Heyhoe. She's a climate scientist and co-director of the Climate Center at Texas Tech University professor. Hey. Thanks so much for talking to us once again thank you for having me.

Penn State Cinderella Story Continues, Pat Chambers discusses his team
"All right. We'd like to welcome in Penn State head coach Pat Chambers One. Eight of his last nine coach chambers. Welcome to the world's greatest podcast with Greenberg dockage. Dan Open things up because he is the big ten Guru Guru. I like it. Hey coach last night what happened. We didn't make implicity the voting go in the basket. That's a big leads with that. That's the truth the balls gotta go in the basket for you to win the game. I mean it was a rock fight. Both teams played extremely hard It gives you all know Brad credit for what they did defensively on Stevens and our shooters and then I was fantastic me. He was hurt for about four or five days there and he comes back and he looked healthy and strong and extra little kicking his step for sure he looked fresh. I think that's why he's able to make any place down the stretch for them. Forget about that that game. You won't eight in a row. You want eight zero at Penn State. You've got sixty wins in two and a half years already. Which is absolutely incredible. Most wins in the three year period. I think if I'm not mistaken in the history of Penn state and he's got a lot of season left. How did this group happened? I guess is the best question each. That's why he loved dockage right. He just wants to talk about the negative sake us right. Oh recent Yay balancing. I was conscious classic. Look I just think Lamar Stephen Staying? The course and Mike Walk and staying the course. The older yet veterans Guys that are loyal. Loyalty is is very. As you guys know loyalties everything these guys committed state committed to not only but the staff at each other the players in that locker room and the program so at Penn State. You GotTa get older and you gotta stay old now. We gotta stay old and Dan you were you. Were there at the pleasure when these guys were freshmen. We've played each state. You knew we building something special. We just have to stay the course. We have to be patient and fortunately city Barbara was patient And that's why you're able to to go through some growing pains and learn and get some shared experiences. And that's why you're able to you know as SEF just said sixteen sixty wins in the last three years. It's a great accomplishment for these kids. Twenty and six Penn State two games out of first place with Maryland. I think I don't think Maryland has an easy schedule. I think this could still get very sexy coach. Talk about Lamar Stevens. His his sidekicks other than Watkins are gone from that game but man is he been good. We'll real steady Really Mature Really grown up In his approach and everything he's doing from from cold cubs yoga to getting it. Sure shot's taking care of his body take and then his leadership ability and autos and in the locker room that practice is a kid. Who's you know? We only got a few weeks left of the season regular season and he still bought into the culture of doing all the little things that we need. Do to keep getting better. And that's been his message. You know he guys what we can get a lot better. We gotTA clean this. We gotTA CLEAN THIS UP CLEVELAND. So if we can do that now you really. GonNa put put ourselves better position. I mean we're a great position now but he wants more. He's hungry for more. I mean he's gotta be up there for for player of the year in this league. I mean there's I know guards it and I know thirty. Counting cash is another straight players. But Lamar Steve has got to be in the conversation. Now you played last night. You've played it for a while now without your second leading scorer Myron Jones. What what does he bring? What's the timetable to bring them back? See Dan I'm learning this thing here. I'm trying to create some news out of this question and that was the kind of newsy question. Dan's radio show now. This is something different dad. We J. for sure. Obviously we're evaluating. We want him to be as healthy as possible before we bring them back on the floor. I think we would be doing him a disservice if we brought him back any earlier. So let's make sure he's as healthy as possible so we can really contribute any safe. You know that's important kids. Safety Ethic is what Penn State's all about But to lose your second leading score and go three and one is about the depth and you guys know this you know. We've never had that type of depth in my tenure. We're talking about Mike Tenure I was never able to go seven eight nine deep and this year. We were able to do that for the most part now. Mj's down guys have been stepped. Brockton has been stepping up tomorrow. Wheelers stepping up Curtis Jones has been stepping up as long as we get contributions from everybody we. We can continue to compete. Continue to get better. Hey you mentioned your Athletic Director Sandy. The importance of for one somebody sticking with someone Santa. Barbara's been amazing Look I Texas Texas Tech. Today we need to do a case study other directors need to watch not jump the gun and go find out what might win the press conference or make the public happy I think it's she's been inside the walls here. She's been inside the program she sees what we're doing a culture wise inside a lock room. She comes to practices. She sees developing our players. And how we're getting better and You know I think it's all pay off both of us. How about the environment? I you know you go to Penn State. It's got this great name obvious identity but I was so. They had some issues with the football situation but the environment. What makes Penn state like when you when you take that job? It's a big job and all those other things it's more money and and that's great now that you're there now that you're having success. What makes it the right place for you? Because let's face it as coaches? You're only as good as last season you can you? Can you know people have short term memories I? It's not an easy job. So what makes it where you say you know what not only can I win but I can sustain it? I mean what's the key to sustaining? Besides just getting players. Yeah. I think it's buying. I think you both would agree with that right. Top top down by into what we're trying to do complete and total investment into making. Sure that look we.

"Plus a minus type the maybe in that range, Matt wells a little bit lower on that did a re I look Utah state has had a really good season last year. But I I mean until he made some changes offensively last year. I mean, there was talk, you know, may maybe not hot seat, but there was some rumblings hair after he started nine and five and ten and force first couple of seasons. I mean hadn't had a winning season in his previous three. So I mean, they got the hot guy off a really good eleven into season. I I mean offense only it's it'll be since he made those changes that Utah state last year. I guess it's a decent fit of Texas Tech. But I there's gonna be some struggles there, you know looking. At how Texas Tech's going to be this year. Again, I, I don't see him taking a major step back. But, but I certainly don't think that they're going to take a major stuff for. And I got them right around six wins thirteen returning stars for them. And it's an intriguing fit particularly, you know, when I look at Texas Tech schools, like Baylor, Texas Tech, you know, Washington state schools that are kinda, you know, out in the middle of nowhere, and it's kind of a peculiar recruiting spot, you know, I wanna look at ties and Matt wells doesn't have a lot of ties to the state of Texas. So that's why I thought it was a peculiar higher there. He had a solid season last year. But I, I, I don't know. See, that's a good thing with some of these coaches and the new coaches. Sometimes I get I have some, I'm very aggressive if I like it, and I have some of my biggest pet and then there's others like.

"Show ever feel. Texas Tech comes into the game dome for bringing an extremely physical defense beating up on teams like Michigan state, Gonzaga. Michigan Virginia also atop defense was pulled off miracle wins against Purdue and Auburn fans for both sides have no idea how tonight will end. It's just like oh spirit says it's ten four hundred games. Oh, I don't think either way we've been surviving in advancing. So I'm just hoping cow guy will be able to just keep shooting threes. It might be a forty two forty game Virginia is a slight favorite going into tonight's game. But Texas Tech has won its last three games as an underdog. Yeah. It's going to be interesting tonight because nobody Virginia they were a one seed, but Texas Tech defense wins championships. And they were joking about forty to forty. It is going to be one of those games where they're not playing above the rim and Virginia got there would controversy on Saturday. When it looked like it was great defense. They called the guy for a foul and their best player gotta shoot three. Free throws. With point six seconds that one second but point six seconds on the clock to send them there. So it's gonna be interesting tonight. It's gonna be interesting, by the way, I have none of these teams producer Phil that you have even one of these in the final four at all negative. That's a negative just. We'll see though, my I'd like see Virginia Tech. When it I think, it'd be cool. But if I mean, I'd like to see Texas Tech when it but Virginia want it. They went out last year is the laughing stock being that I'm one overall seed and losing to a team that played in the sixteenth seed never had before. So if they wanted this year for that three two three five three eight twenty four twenty three at Chadbensonshow is your Twitter. Let's do a quick one. We call this. Our there've been word of the day time for the.

"Text good enough to do this. Oh, you're not picking them. But I'll just tell you. I am. I picked Texas Tech to win a game. Okay. If they do it. It will be a totally nonconventional way because they're twenty eight offense efficiency, obviously, I defensive efficiency, but twenty eighth in offense efficiency, do you know, how many times in the past seventeen years, which is the Kim palmyra where the data's available? How many times in the past seventeen years somebody outside of the top twenty has offense efficiency is one Jim show. Do you Conte's you can once? Okay. They were thirty ninth offense visionary in two thousand fourteen. That's that fluky team. Besides that. Everybody's been inside the top twenty. Now they've landed there remember yet. But still at Texas Tech and getting inside what happens. But right, right. They can win the game. They win the game. They landed outside the top one day. Well, yes. So only one time in seventeen years as a team outside of the top twenty insufficiently won the national championship. What's even crazier is that in twelve of the seventeen years? So all but five times the team's been inside the top ten. So Texas Tech is way off that Mark. But you gotta give them a realistic chance because of the defense. I mean, I'll just keep it as simple as I can keep it if you can frustrate Michigan the way frustrated Michigan and not just Michigan, but John beeline coach Michigan, and then do it to Mark few. And then do at the time is Michigan state. And by the way, two of those offenses Michigan's wasn't but top ten offenses in America, just over just humiliated them, embarrass them. If you can do it to them, you can do it to. Julia. I've got give us a score Texas Tech winning the game fifty nine. Fifty seven. All right. So we both have the winning team with fifty nine point. I've cracking the sixty point barrier. Can't wait for this game. As we wrap the podcast. I have to know, you know, for so many years perish was he was resistant not defiant, but resistant about doing podcast person to person, and we did the last one got great response. Also want to say. I I really appreciate I don't say this to be like, hey, people notice me there were a lot of people that came up. I'm sure you've got the same. That said really love the podcast like, that's that's genuinely appreciated when you find Perisher myself. We we are we have thankful that you listen. And we thank you so much for all of that. So thank you continuous. And when we get the off season pairs resistant, and he told me, you know, what it was such a great podcast in person. This do one live podcast to get really comfortable. You've done this whole frequent podcast, and you've been in socks you don't even have your shoes on or in a public place. What are you doing right now? And you do this on airplanes. Do you want the story this line apple socks, by the way? So in New York last week one night or one morning. It's dark in my shoes off as you should. And I've got my radio equipment in my room.

"Scott Kelsey looking looking like he was having. I don't know. But I think his reputation is a man who has a good time. So he was wearing some sort of Baz deal on. I don't know what was going on there. But but congrats on Texas Tech you move along. Michigan state. I mean, I I wrote a quick call to me the one of the two or three take from the game was I guess in light of the defeat. I was like, you know, what I know what Tom is talking about here. I know what he was saying he wants that second national championship for self validation. Now, I still don't need it for him. But he's now two in six and national semifinals. He is now oddly become as tach te to the notion that he loses on the on the first Saturday, the final four as the fact that he's won a national championship. I'm not taking him down a peg at all you gotta get there to be two in six. You gotta make it eight times. But it is become a little bit of a weird thing that Michigan state just it's just bumping up against something here and keeps falling short. This was the only time as we have mentioned on a couple of previous podcasts that Michigan state lost in the Nash. Semi final when it was the favourite slash and or higher Sita team. That was the case here. Michigan state was the betting favorite didn't come through there. Ran up against what his rating as the best defense in at least eighteen nineteen years. So there's no great shame in it. But it is it is just become a thing. Right. It's become a thing with this makes fun of four hall of Famer, plenty of respect. But I bet you Michigan state fans are just there's a level of frustration that setting in. It's like we're not even getting to the title game. We did it once since we wanna and by the way, we ran up against that epic awesome Oneida UNC team where we almost had no chance. Anyway, even though the game was played there in Detroit had no chance and I remember Tom speaking before that game the sun the day before the game. And he was candidates. You could be he said, listen if they play well, we're not gonna win like better than us in. He said all the he's they have better players than us. They have a better coach than us. And you gotta say you better say, they got a better coach if you're gonna say they got better players, right? He's like he's like if they play well, we won't win. But we have a neck for for making people not play. Well, and so we're gonna hope that we can we can play. Well, maybe make them not place. A well. And then maybe we'll have a shot. Then of course, they go out and get by twenty right? But banging on Tom for being now one for eight when getting to the final four in terms of national championships two and six in the National Symphony three and seven overall if you include national semifinals and title games to me. That's like when people reference LeBron James record in the finals. Good. Good parallel. They say they say you LeBron's three and six in the finals. That's okay. I mean, he's been there nine times. That's amazing and in. Okay, three and sixty nine many times LeBron James has had the favored team when the final started. I would say two three two two the answers to. So if you look at it from a win where you supposed to win it when we're not supposed to win it perspective. He's overachieved in the NBA finals, even if he's three and six and NBA finals and same thing with Tom Izzo. I think he's never as you pointed out on the last podcast been favored to win the championship..

One hundred seventy six in the country and turnover percentage, they go out and they face a team that they've seen multiple times in Minnesota. And they turn it over twenty two more times again there, and you thought maybe that would be a concern that was the lone concern in the LSU game for us. But it seems like Winston stepped up his game. When the moments got bigger only seven turnovers against LSU, and and Trump wanders Zabol hawk only seven turnovers against Duke again trae Jones is a ball hawk. I think that's the key here. We know Texas Tech loves depression the ball turnover their length in the country and turnover percentage. Texas Tech as you alluded to loves to switch defensively when they do it's imperative you don't turn it over. And you get the ball. Download to tell mental ward goings once those guys get the ball. I think they have to make tech paver switching right? They're gonna have smaller guys on them. And those guys are gonna have to protect the ball. They're gonna have to be quick with their movements in they're gonna have to finish and be efficient. I think that's big. You know, Torri goings the Saint John's transfer he has been ridiculous on the back line. He is like the ultimate racer this season. He's been that in this tournament. You look at tech. They block nineteen percent of shots the rim, but their little their little lanky down there and Owens is long doesn't have a ton of. Kinda size down there. And you look at some of the at rim. Percentages tech allows fifty five percent shots the rim to go in. So I think that's that's key for Sparty. Don't turn it over get their bulky stronger. Guys. Download to take advantage of the smaller guys on them. That's that is going to be the key to this. Texas Tech has to rebound MRs hundred ninety eight in the country and defensive rebound rate Sparty top twenty five offense rebound percentage..

"March madness bracket go on record of put Ross Ramsey on the hot spot. So I'm going to tell you mine, I've got Duke into the Sweet Sixteen but get knocked off by Virginia Tech. And you may say I'm crazy Virginia Tech beat do. Going February twenty six the Michigan state and taken the east bracket is the number to see. That's when I guide is Owen, his boys Gonzaga going all the way to the elite eight only to get knocked off by Texas Tech, also Murray state beating more kit. I'm I'm telling you history right now that yet to unfold I got Kentucky going into the elite eight in the mid west only to get knocked off in the final four by UNC. My eventual champion there UNC, I do think Kansas will get knocked off by Auburn in that bracket as well. In the south Tennessee, all the way to the final four Virginia to get knocked off by Tennessee in the southern bracket. Oh, you over Mississippi State, Oregon with the upset over Wisconsin. And my Cinderella. Ella is UC Irvine UC Irvine to knock off Kansas state in the first round advance over Oregon only to be defeated by. Virginia and told you about the other side of the bracket also gonna just take Saint Mary's over Villanova. Because like a good Cinderella story. He's with us each week. His name's Mike bazaar. Is there a way might bazaar to hack the tournament? Well, I mean, there's people involved that's harder. I mean, there's always like Pete Rose. Right. I think this is when you get into the social aspect of it you could try to get a team to throw a game. But you gotta convince everybody on the team. So there's gotta be a lot of money there. Yeah. But I mean, it'd be possible. Typically that would get around in college athletics. I would think it would it's a little harder in pro. You gotta you know, he had to keep Pete Rose, quiet and college athletics, you got to keep a whole team in a coach in a bunch of other people on the same age the guys at the end of the bench. Yeah. Keep them quite let's they wanna sing quite the same mill ticket. How you've been doing? I'm fantastic, man. I can't complain life. Grand lead that you're back out. And another addition know that we've come to be termed as this this segment the tin foil segment telling you, but there are solutions even bizarre salute. There we need to be solved. That's it. I'm telling you. So we get out on some limbs. Here we do. And I think the hard part is everybody thinks tinfoil hat. The problem is in like, I was talking to my little brother last night. He was asking me advice for home security stuff like what's overkill for his router and some of the other things, and we were talking through it. And I said, you know, you're wanting to use a VPN at your house, which I think it's great use VPN if you're out in public on public WI fi, whatever. But what's the point? You have Google everything. Google already knows everything about you. Like, they're the worst offenders the BPM yet virtual private network, so VPN in crypts the data on your phone or your laptop and sends it through a tunnel essentially to whatever server you're connecting to. And then let's go anything between your phone and. Server can't read the data. So if you're on Starbucks public wifi. I can probably see what's going on with your computer because we can see it. But if you PIN you kind of have this encrypted tunnel in it helps protect you. So VPN's are great when you're out of work or out of your house, or whatever. But you know, he was a little overkill on on it. I think to try to do it at his house. But on that note, if you go look there's a couple of easy VPN's, you can get that are like Nord VPN and a few others. You can buy an app, it's a few bucks a month more. There's a free one from cloudflare. If you look it up, and like, you can install it on your phone..

The thing about this is the legislature is going to look at it and make decisions about whether. Whether they really care about this and how much they care about it. And which side they're on, you know, when you look at it as a legislator, you know, most of the legislature didn't go to a n m and didn't go to Texas Tech. I mean, some of them certainly did some of them certainly represent those schools, and they're, you know, they're well represented up here. But a lot of members are just like, you know, I don't know do we need a vet school or not. And you know, so they're going to be arguing that case and not arguing the politics. Some of them are going to be looking at the politics and saying, well, you know, I think it's better for me to go this way or that way. There's a you know, that was kind of interesting it's politics in a Petri dish. It's you know, it's right there in front of you. And you get to watch how sausage is made. You know, usually, those kinds of fights are very quiet there in the back room. Nobody sees them. I I certainly don't think that's going to be the situation with the Texas Tech that school speaking speaking of Texas Tech with Ross Ramsey. You took him do the elite eight and your bracket. I did. That's a good basketball team. You're going to say. The final four. Because they run into something called Gonzaga, which I picked to win the whole thing. They could they could through you know. I mean who knows I just, you know, I'm I'm so accustomed to doing my brackets like, you know, like most of the people, I know I do my brackets they play the first weekend. My brackets are completely blown. And then I'm just about just watching basketball. And I thought I'd throw it up before before it blew up. Just so I could have a moment when it was perfect. You're probably not accustomed talking about your brackets on the radio either. But I know people like some Ross Ramsey love for the red raiders. So appreciate that that it's a good basketball team.

"If you don't do anything except. Glance at scores. The following day, you go, okay, Duke, went out and handle, Texas Tech. But Duke did not go out and tech. That was a a competitive game basically start to finish and a game that it looked like Texas Tech was going to win probably more minutes than it. Looked like Texas Tech was was was going to to lose you mentioned trae Jones, and he does not get the attention of the other three freshman for obvious reasons. The other three fresher might go one two three and NBA draft. And I do think trae is gonna be a first round pick. But he's not probably not going to be a lottery pick certainly not going to be a top five pick. I'm not gonna get hyperbolic here and talk about how he's just as important as anybody else because I'm not sure that true the RJ pretty damn important to me what he scored thirty points in zion's when he's got the highest PR and the history of whatever looked pretty important to me. But he is very important trade Jones as to what they do. He's not as heralded. But he runs that team. He's tremendous defensively. K talked about this late Thursday about how trade defensively in terms of just knowing where to be. And running things on that end of the court is as good as any freshman. He's he's ever had if not any point guard that he's ever had. I don't think it's an accident that trae Jones is a member of this team. And dukes defensive efficiency rating is third in the country. Remember this team that was so bad defensively super talented, but so bad defensively last season. They had they had a plays on. They were very good last season in spite of what they were on defense right now, they're number two offense efficiency number three. And defensive efficiency. They really are terrific sitting here now at eleven and one heading into the portion of their schedule. They still do have one more nonleague gained that's going to be against Saint John's in February early February. That's Saint John's team that is still undefeated at this point eleven oh under Chris Mullin, but eleven one heading into the portion of your schedule. I don't know if you're much you quote would've taken that. But certainly not a bad place. And it's they're they're doing well overall do I mean, I'm stating the obvious there. But I'm talking about when when they've faced Texas Tech and even a loss against if you eliminate what RJ it was doing the end of the game Duke, very well wins that game this has been beyond expectation. It's. It's almost a trait thing to say GP, but it is important. Remember that the star force them here. The coretec there. They've never played this level of basketball before there is no guarantee that they're going to be awesome. They're yes. They're highly rated, but you just don't know as a collective how they'll perform I even point to last season you can point to we're going to get to Kentucky here shortly. You can have freshmen that are highly rated even ones that are highly rated like Zion and RJ were if you look at the case of scallop Kentucky. There's there's never the guarantee that you'd going to happen. The way that it's happening for Duke. So it is pretty notable too to see how they've been this consistent overall and how they could win that kind of game. It looked like a looked like a great environment. There you obviously had trae young Jimmy Butler. I'm sure if you other celebrities are on hand to watch them real quick entree Jones his numbers. He is the textbook case of when you watch Duke play like I do think that he has nights. And we'll have more nights where he is the most important valuable person on the floor. Just because what he does. But he's averaging eight point seven points five point six times, three point three boards. He's he's shooting it forty five cent from the field. Which is you know, it's okay. He's only thirty one point eight from three. It's not terrible. It's not great overall. But he's he had six deals something like that. He he makes a lot of really good plays in moments when they need them and between him, and then Jack white who is now I've seen Jack white and at least three or four games make big three pointers come up with some big rebounds..

"Larson who wants who wants to mandate at least follow the Bill to require two state agencies who happen to have football teams, Texas university of Texas to play their game on an annual basis that to say the legislature king get involved in sports when they want to when you think about a law. That says if you're gonna compete in a major five conference with with public institutions in Texas like Texas Tech, like university of Texas university, Houston etcetera that yours athletics departments at private schools are not the whenever somebody files. A public information requests. Then you've got to you've got to meet that request that you are no longer outside the bounds of public information requests. In talking about like TCU's and the Baylor's of the island. I mean, the controversies at Baylor, for instance, in how if you know, in my view had something like that happened at Texas Tech you could fill the lower bowl with the hard copies of requests. It would come in from media agencies. But Baylor there's been a lot of talk about art browse here and there and the coaching search, but nobody knows what happened where are you on that? Do you think that they ought to pony up on public information's at providence petitions does that give a leg up to others on a competition basis? Well, I'm on comfortable with with the private schools that able to hide behind that. I think that that's obviously when your institution, and you get money from the state to operate that's kind of the rules UP play by it it. It's tricky. Because in one way, I mean, if they're not taking public funds that they should have to play by the same rules. But if we're going to speak to if we're going to speak to the fact that does that it helped TCU and Baylor did that did that help Baylor not help to us? But that allow Baylor to operate the way they did for many many years, which was a bit sketchy. I think you know, that that's that's I think fair assumption based on people not being able to get into business, you know, in figure out exactly what happened. And why happened how it happened and all that stuff? So because you know, schools they the providence petitions they had behind that a lot. But you just can't you can't they're not bound. To have to tell you anything. They don't want to that part is tricky when it comes to the controversies that we've seen certain places I look forward to. Eventual state Senator Chris level fouling Bill, the private schools are no longer exempt. There you go. Thanks for crossing the fence with me there, buddy. And have a great time on your trip in.

"Yes. I have I have have you. Game at the garden. No we were out there at Seton Hall last year play lost that game. But I did not make that trip. I was still doing football related stuff at the time. But the raiders went out to the garden last year and played in the Under Armour event played seat hall that was the only non conference loss that they that they had. So is this is this a true for the level? Families going is everybody in for this trip. My now for Miami, though. But I know I'm talking about I'm talking about Madison Square Garden do. Okay. Yeah. My my wife and kids in my parents are making that trip with the that they're going to go out there and my in laws are going. I think a lot of tech fans and whatnot are gonna make the trip out there. I was at New York's plan time around Christmas time. So it should be fun. But it in and that's a deal we've seen what Duke is able to do so far that's one of the deal for Texas Tech. It's kind of a free spin of the wheel. You know, if you go and compete and win you're gonna get a lot of praise and accolades and deservedly, so you lose that game that that was the expectation, and and you're not going to get hammered for for a loss there like it'll be a good loss as the way that this stuff will get factored in, but but Chris beard will have his guys ready for Memphis, Duke. And we'll just kinda see what happens. So I look up and there's this new thing called net rankings. In Texas Tech men's basketball is number three. What is in net ranking level? They used to used to us. They called RPI ratings power index. It had all these different metrics involved with this is basically a newer version of that. They wanna know, you know, again, did you win? How that did you win where was this game play, and they wait different than wait it differently. If you win away from home purchase, if you do at home, and by how much win by all of these things it's just kind of formula or they put a lot of different metrics into this deal. And it gives them a pretty good indication on on what team is really getting done out there because not everybody plays everybody. Right. And everybody's got different non conference schedules and some tested each other more than others, but bottom line is. Yeah, you wanna be ranked really high this deal right exit tick is and it speaks to what they were able to do in Kansas City because the recent direct so high is because how good USC had been and continues to be an the set when the Brassica. And so that the crazy thing is Memphis is not having a very good year three and three I think coming into this game. And there are PI kind of member was going to be around the to hundreds. So this will kind of actually hurt you when you play them from a numbers standpoint. That's just again that when you schedule teams, do do it months and months in advance you kind of feel for what they all are. But Memphis could in fact hurt your your ranking? And all that even if you win the game. I think I'm making sense. There was this game scheduled while tubby was still at Memphis. No, this was actually scheduled. I wanna say the last six to nine clouds, but this is fairly recent. Yeah, they put this together. Either last spring last summer is they start in basketball skills, very different than than than football. When these conversations football scheduled for, you know, decade out, it seems like now, that's kinda the way it goes. The basketball is pretty much year to year deal. Now tech will have a pretty good feel for what a vent the play in the play in Vegas next year that they're looking to play and maybe the Bahamas the your after that some of those events are kinda scheduled for out. You don't even know who's going to be in those events the other teams, but some of these just single game type deals. These are on a done just months before the season starts. Yeah. Okay. So level cross the fence with me, and let's talk politics and sports for just second. The Texas legislature bills are beginning to be filed.

And then they'll play with that other thing for about three months. And and then it just goes into the big pile of of other toys, Charlie wanted a a put the video up on Twitter and Facebook, I think we re tweeted it through the show. He wanted a Hoke that could smash cake in his little head. He's just turned five five convenient locations across hub city. Five years running Charlie just turned five Br. Brings this to mind.

That's what I've been logging onto all day long. Those guys are on top of it enjoyed their insights. I I will say that. I don't swerve out the my lane into the coaching search thing at my lane is the politics, but politics is what makes organizations and institutions work. It's it's the power. It's the movement and the practice in many ways an institution organization, that's my intrigue in the coaching. Search is to look at where power is where it's going and who's in control who's not in what's going on behind the scenes. And because Texas Tech football such a big part of west Texas spend, the time that I do on it, and whether or not your sports nother not of the enjoy the coverage that we give level coming up here in about ten minutes from now, and then our friends, Sarah, self war brick.

How long has it been since we heard that Reagan gate audio not the audio of the that were there, Sarah so Warburg coming up? But. The thing that I'm gonna get into immediately is into the unmet expectations. Are premeditated resentment Kirby hocutt had oppressor on Monday in which he talked about elite in look, I'm the say this Kirby hocutt Nuff said it, and I'm going to say again, I think he's the most powerful official in Lubbock Texas that and maybe for large part of the region. I think that he has proven himself. Those who went in nabbed him from Miami have proven their salt over the I would've never thought that ill. It was a long ways off eight years ago. When are we didn't have to times to rub together? But now, we have eight football tickets and we've got six basketball tickets men's basketball tickets, and that's a budget priority. Now speaks to Kirby hocutt, especially the basketball end. So. But Kirby hocutt. Said something in his press conference in it was that word elite. We're going to be elite in whenever people think about elite. They may think along the lines of Notre Dame in Ohio State urban Meyer, a Nick Sabin in Alabama. I I don't believe that anybody heard him say the words elite and thought well, we're going to get Nick Sabin. But they did think, hey, maybe that Bob stoops thing is a possibility maybe we are going to go get a Hoeger son or a leak share..

I mean, he's everything to that school. He's your identity. I mean, he really is. Let's win or lose. You always had the best looking goat in college football. That's it coach willing to tell you how he used flirtation with single moms and had bottle service at practices. Brought over. Yes. Yes. All of the fun stuff that kings, very represents as swaggering fun guy gone with a thirty five and forty record. That was just recently extended didn't they just first of all this is so funny to me that you tell me that they don't have money in this sport. But they just recently extended Kingsbury, then they said never mind about that. And then on top of that that that extension had a buyout clause in it right buyout clause where he had to give where anyone at that time. It was hotter. Pro candidate the idea of him leaving for another school. They had to put a clause in a bio claw, Dan. But you know, there's nothing more grievous in the sport of college athletics. Then having a coach go into a season as a lame duck. You can't have that you always have to extend. I don't think there's ever been a head coach in college football big time college football that's entered the final year of a contract that hasn't gotten the extension. They always. End up getting an extension before they get fired. That's the deal. It's a racket, and they don't have money. They don't have money. Just for the coaches had paid the kid's saving helicoptered into the into the field. The other day it rained. What do you expect them to do? Exactly, let nature. Tickets course. What you gotta do. Get that feel dry. I tell you what dammit Texas Tech the next coach is going to be thirty five and forty anyway, you might as well have Kingsbury, right? I mean, any coach coaches Texas Tech is going to be thirty five and forty right roughly gamma put it on the poll is any coach who coaches at Texas Tech gonna be thirty five and forty after seventy five game. There are some local reports out there near Lubbock owner, Mike Leach might be tossed around as a name, which is there's a lot of baggage there. I don't even know how that happens, but I did watch the apple Cup. And I saw it snowing and Mike Leach offense, probably well. What I loved I loved. I knew when I saw that box score. I'm like, wait a minute. Wait a minute. Nobody actually kept Mike Leach from five hundred passing yards with a scheme. Right. That had to be, you know, seven thousand mile an hour winds in the snow and then oh, yeah. There's the Leech achilles heel. There. It is there's zero rushing yards in a game hurt ya when you're playing Washington. Fifteen not gonna do it. Mike Leach was great there. I should I should take that statement back. I mean, he was eighty four and forty three Tommy Tucker. Ville was third twenty seventeen. I had no idea Tommy Tucker Ville was ever the head coach at Texas tag. What do you associate him with? What Auburn I think he was a he was in between. And then he left Texas Tech for Cincinnati. Is it big stain on the Texas Tech job is timing tub? Ville. Is that the funniest name in college football, Tommy, Tucker, Ville it? Yes, or no. It sounds like a toy train in a in a children's book..

Have you guys timeout? Let's refer just second as a Dan the four young kids. Nine. Well, now eleven. Nine nine in four about turn fought. I've done the Disney thing I've done the original Disney thing, can we talk for just a moment about how crazy the old. Disney movies are whenever you back and watch them Nokia. How did that not give me nightmares? Like the kids have been raised on. You got a friend in me like the Toy Story stuff and the filled. Good narrative. Those will like you go back, and you read Grimm's fairytales. I don't know how we got there. Just hold on. We'll get him with level here in about six minutes from now.

In crow comes and eight sounds is like the original Hansel and gretel. Like, that's some serious stuff. But you go back even now you watch like the original Pinocchio with the the boys being held off to in by the way sa- great political analogy today, but I'll refrain in kind of stick with where I'm going. Where they get hold off to pleasure island, and they all turned into jackasses. And like the human trafficking involved there in all the sudden like today that would never be Disney could never produce that movie today. Lourdes boss cigars and the equivalent of Pinocchio keystone beer in then Dumbo win the elephants on parade. Like, I've never been stoned my life, but I could just magin how hallucinogenic it would have been to go in and watch that like watching those old movies now is kind of crazy town, and I call him old because quite frankly, I think me and a large portion of this audiences old the old Disney movies. I don't think kids could handle them today. Just like we wouldn't have been able to handle the original Grimm's brother Grimm's fairytales, whenever they're call really really explicit stuff. So that's just knob survey Shen from dad. So last night Halloween. I don't know how your Halloween went many places in Texas. It's wet the further north you get the colder got in.

Well, Texas Tech writer, you Texas Tech, you hear about yours.

We're blessed it wide receiver. The secondary's don't a great job of of competing and having a battle back and forth. Everyday and practices is making us better.

"You see them in practice, give a scouting report on the other side. Well, Texas Tech writer, you Texas Tech you about yours. I well defensively what I can tell you is coach crime as the expert on his side of the football. But we are challenged every day right now physically up front with the run game. We're challenged even know. We're blessed it wide receiver, the secondary's on a great job of of competing and having a battle back and forth. Everyday and practices is making us better. You know, my my personal opinion we are. We are much better defensive football team right now. Then maybe we were year ago. Speaking of year ago, coach, everyone was acutely aware of fifty four weeks ago. The change at ole miss and watching coach. Luke come in and leading this team with a lot of great assistance and a lot of character on on the football team through what time it was difficult but ended extremely well help us better understand your boss in almost head football coach, you know, Matt, Matt, Luke is is. You couldn't have a better leader right now for for this program. I mean, he he has his deeper root here in Oxford and ole miss and in this football program, and this university's you could possibly have and he comes to work every day with that passion. You see it. He wears it on his sleeve, it's infectious. It rubs off on the coaches. It rubs off on the players. You wanna coach art form. You wanna play hard form and I think everybody believes his message. He believes the culture that he's, he's building here and you know, he's going to give it everything he has every day. And I think the players, the coaches feel like they want to return the same. And it is such an interesting story. And coaches come in all different shapes and sizes. As you know, you've dealt with many in your storied career. When I mean, what I heard from, you sounds like what a player would say. I'm fascinated by the trickle down and I know you've explained it, but I'm fascinated by, but by what he means when he's in that room with you, it's one thing to be on the field. But when you're in when you're in the staff meetings, which he like, well, when you get up and go to work and I can always speak for myself. But I, I think. When you get up and you go to work and and you know that the boss when you get there is going to be fired up. He's going to be passionate. Everything is well thought out. Everything is organized in everything means the absolute most to him when it has to do with with our program. You know, you're inspired and motivated to work for for a coach like that for a person like that. And you know, he's giving it his effort to leave this program and you believe in the direction he's taking it. And so when you have that type of leadership, at the top coaches go into their positional rooms with the same passion and the same motivation. And and that's how it winds up acting trickling down to to our players. And I would say it's a credit to our players a very high character locker room, and these guys go to work every day. And you know, they've been through a lot, and I think they're right now just very, very excited about continuing to prepare for Texas coach. Thank you for. Taking time.

"Two, four. Well, here's the thing about the dunkers that's been inspirational to me. I didn't realize that if you dunk a couple times, you get the lifelong membership card to the dunker commuted. Yes, because I took piano lessons and I had a recital, but I'm not abuse edition. Yeah, but guess what? I don't think you played anything PNO nearly as good as that Todd that I don't did a gay four lists actually by Beethoven is fantastic. Yeah, bet. When other people do it, I was pretty good. First name Bomani is Baker Mayfield before winning the Heisman. It, Oklahoma, Browns rookie. Baker Mayfield was a walk on at Texas Tech and enu Fox Sports documentary called all the way up. Mayfield spoke his piece about cliff Kingsbury his old coach. Let's listen. Listen, I had a great relationship. We're open. We talked a lot. We going back and forth from opinions on what plays that I liked and all that kind of played into factor. And that's realize that that was the right spot from me, but it felt like I was going to be at home. From being the guy forgo chains berry. And then when I got hurt, it just changed a little bit not a little bit lot. All of a sudden it was as if I hadn't played for them, hadn't done anything for them. It was just different. That's I got hurt. Bomani who is that a worse? Look for Baker cliff Kingsbury. I kind of feel like nobody. I mean, he got treated like a wellcoll and who got hurt. He got replaced by Davis Webb who is now the NFL Davis Laura came Davis Webb by the way who then transferred to Cal because he got replaced by Padma hopes right. Also keep it by right before Kingsbury got Texas Tech. He goes Johnny, Manziel, apparently kings various pretty good at this quarterback thing and says some level. But the thing about Mayfield is he doesn't let anything slide knows the fuel that drives him and it's so we'll probably be the fire that engulfs him. So I am hesitant to get on Baker Mayfield because we all saw how treated Colin coward when he was invited into studio masterful. His defensiveness is masterful. There is no question about that, but I need more specifics. Like if you're going to come out here and say that cliff Kingsbury did you wrong in a way that was at all atypical or special? Give. How we know college football coaches or football coaches in general, at any level, treat the disposability of their athletes. I'm going to need to know more. Was it just that they got hurt? Well, it's I think it's not just that he got hurt you gotta remember Mayfield as the first walk on ever to start at quarterback as a true freshman, we say, walk all he says starter, right? So he feels like I was the starter on this team and then I got hurt. And then you acted like you did not know me? Yeah, it'd be a little bit salty about that, but those are in fact the breaks in the way this game goes, it look, if you're Mayfield you kind of get the last last year you were the number one overall pick in the draft?.
