No matter what they can go and make millions of dollars. They can go and they can win an nba championship. They can go klay and reach their individual dreams which is amazing and rights to go after but to a person i experienced myself in many met a lot more success in the nba. The time i spent in college whether it was low major. Not even i go back terry porter. Who played for. My dad played seventy years when being finals in on non say you can't touch that the crowds the camaraderie. The the ups announced the stories. It just becomes business so my hope is that. that's greatest. Fear is a long answer. But i think it's the right answer leaser. Mind mind that this doesn't become too much where you.

I think who was in vaudeville did. Did your uncle stories make you want to go into show business. It seemed like fun to you. Well you know. He was a a wise very wise psychologists as far as i'm concerned because His name was dick gordon and dick race but his stage name was gordon and He was he was really. My father. And i didn't know what i mean. He would just say the after supper. Wanted to come and meet me under the lamppost on the street corner and he would just hang out and talk to me and tell me these legends and what an influence was because he. He kind of gave me all the rules. And what kind of person has should be if if i go into show business and and You know he One need that he said. I don't think you're ever gonna make it because you have a rasping your voice. He said you're a singer. You're not gonna make it if you're saying and So i don't know he just gave me a fine tuning as to what attitude i should have when i perform how careful i really have to be about everything. Well how telling you rasping your voice and therefore you'd never make it as a singer help you. Well dom very moore went said that the heart of the slap the greater the artist. You self-conscious about this thing. That your your father. Your uncle had pointed out to you absolutely. I mean. I taught how to louis belts and the great drama. You know pro bellies has been The late girl belly You know He kind of taught me how to breathe in So that when i sing the rest is not Not heard at all and It's just a matter of breathing before you take the bef- before a phrase that you saying you are in the military in world war two. That was in the infantry is did you sing with a band that after the war Joined there was a fantastic story. You know about a major lead cough. Who kind of. Save me because Racial prejudice situation jumped off and it was terrible in my life just changed my life You know completely in. I went to school with a gentleman called frank smith and he was wonderful friend black musician and he and i used to have so much fun together in new york city and we had a vocal group in at high school of industrial art where i was studying art and When i i was allowed one guest for thanksgiving and at the truman hotel in mannheim germany. After the war was over. And i went to his baptist church and went to mess with him and we had a pleasant time. And i said you're allowed to be my guest coming. Have thanksgiving dinner with me. Well there was a sudden bigot. Who has a a lieutenant and And he when. I came out of the restaurant. We were having fun. He came. call me benedetto. He said come over here and and he took a razor blade and slashed. My corporal Things off my arm and spit on it and threw it on the floor and sent me the graves registration where you dig up parties and it was horrible and major. Let cough saved me. He heard about the incident and took me away from there right away and made me librarian for a wonderful guest to that was conducted by lin. Arison the warrant officer and Made me the the librarian and singer for the this beautiful american forces network orchestra so as punishment. You were supposed to Find the wounded and the dead and bury the dead is. How long did you have to do that for two and a half weeks it was horrible. Just horrible Thing in my life. And i've never gotten over it and man's inhumanity. Man is very important to me. Personally how do you think you changed by that experience. Well it definitely made me antiwar you are really Among the most respected singers today and certainly a of your generation in i mean among the things you respected for is not only the beauty of your voice and the depth of your phrasing but also your repertoire. Your choice of songs your understanding of of what makes a song good in the fifties and sixties up until around nineteen sixty five you. You had so many records on the charts you recording three albums a year and a lot of the singles were were big. Hits on the charts. Your your last chart hit was in nineteen sixty five if i ruled the world and after that rock and roll really took off you know. Monopolize the charts pretty much What what were those years In the latter part of the sixties like for you trying very hard to land something else on the charts or are you pretty much given up. Walked away from it. I thought it was sort of as a fiasco with became more and more Madison avenue programming. Just the marketing thing. I've i've got this wonderful craving no a friend of mine sam brassy. He's a dancer and he said to me. God you paint every day. He said you stretch out and make it an occupation so about thirty five years ago. I just took them up on that. And i started painting and going toward Selling my paintings. And all that and having gallery showings and they're not allowed me to become a performance. Because i always had deadlines up until then. I had to do like you say three albums a year and hit singles and all that and i was really just into the record business and i just walked away from it i personally. I wasn't rejected. I i was the one decided to take a walk and what happened was very helpful. I learned that things work out for the best because What happened is i learned how to perform on stage a lot better. Now that i'm recording my son. Danny was responsible for getting a contract with a trust me and i just hand in record and thank god for because It's allowed me the freedom to just express myself freely. You're singer who it seems to me keeps getting deeper into songs as you the longer you think that your your phrasing just seems to become t to have more emotional depth time You know you know why that happened. That i think i have the answer to that. It's so funny when I used to sit around the house and watch my mom who just made one dress after another working on a in a record breaking time to make so as many dresses as she can Says she'd make a little more money for us to live by in That every once in a while she would stay very and very concentrated on what she was doing but every once in a while she gets angered and she would take address and throw it over her soul and seed say. Don't don't have me work on. She says i if you give me a good dress. I don't mind doing this. She said but don't ever work on a bed dress on a cheap dress and that's why Just decided never to compromise. I think that's what it came from. I saw that you know. She was able to sustain because she stayed with good quality. And i ask some nacho time i said why do you think that we've sustained so long through the years he said. That's because we stayed with good songs. So i think when you do something of quality Somehow or other you may not be on top of the charts but you're always respected and you always have a place in society by doing something that's made very well. How do you think getting older as changing your voice and if your voice is changing how do you think that's changing how you approach a song and how you phrase miller ex. Yeah well bobby had taught me to work on dell scales every day and so i've been able to obtain four or five more notes on the bottom of my register so now on the baritone tenor and Take good care.

He could be pretty tough So i said no. But i i love the way he sings and i love him personally as a as a fan. I'm just going to go up and talk to them. Found out that it was just the opposite of what everybody said about him. He was just wonderful to me and sat me right down and his jessica and gave me some wonderful advice about not worrying about being nervous because He said the public likes that. He said in. If if you don't carry said why should the audience carey said if you're nervous. They're gonna see that you care so they're gonna root for you and the more they root for you the the more you'll get back to them he said it'll just be fine and It was wonderful advice that you learned things about singing from listening to sinatra.

And that's the first time base united gotten together. I think it's the first time a sing got got together with basie and and we covered all kinds of kinda tunes and this is a very special album because it was unforgettable. We recorded it at starting at twelve o'clock at night and we finished at eight in the morning. We did the whole album one night etiquette among singers about who records what toon and let could anyone record. I left my heart and san francisco after you recorded at. How many years did it take until someone was able to make a recording of that in the early fifties. When i recorded there was still a semblance of Ethics you know because if net cold had a recording you just left it alone if found your own and it was quite a challenge because He'd come up some pretty good records if if one looks to see what other people are recording. And there's certain songs you don't touch the only person i think. Now who would be in the same league with you would be sinatra. Would would you be paying attention to what other people were recording seeing. What was there well who you know. It's if someone comes up with a a nice song there's a new field. They could do i to me. There is a game and the game is to to make it your own number somehow even if you have to change the temple. A little has someone. That's sinatra's doing a tune that's a ballad but you like it very much you could swing it or if there's a swing tune that could turn into a ballot. It said that it becomes your interpretation your way of doing it. So there's a little originality. I'm very interested in people that are individuals rather than all doing the same thing. What makes a song right for you to sing. I mean you you have a wonderful repertoire. And your interpretation of certain songs have really made me hear them in a way. I i haven't before How do you know that song as one that you want to sing. What are you look for. Well something i've experienced sometimes. It just migrate over to like what's what's autobiographical unconsciously. I just find something. I said my god. I've i've experienced that. I've lived that at this happened to me and the it could be humorous. It could be a dramatic at it could be smooth and cool. You never know which way it's going to come from. But what. I really look for is kind of craftsmanship and a song. Someone who's really musically knowledgeable and and combines it with great words so that it meshes and i like to concentrate on interpretation on interpreting songs. Let the player selection from the first album he recorded with bill evans. So we'll be together again so what we're going to hear. How did this come to be well. the great jazzing any ross. Is the a friend of mine and She suggested it. She's the one who said doing with bill evans and bill niwa net one. Another in london at ronnie scott's club and we just started talking about it thinking about it it very happy experience because he told me to keep you know popular artists have a lot of cronies around them and he said keep all the cronies home he said. And just lets you. And i go up to san francisco on for three or four days just record an album and it was such a a terrific experience. Because he's the kind of guy Just my own is kind of gravitate to imerese rebel Bill evans and i could listen to them all day without without feeling like i was over fed or anything that want to change it i could put his music on just as piano playing. And listen to it all day and i find it very peaceful and very very Good for solitude and in thinking of creative ideas. I hid here bill. Eleven and i just My mind Just Triggers off into a creative process. I like it very much. Did you have to talk about each other's music much before you started to actually play together with anything. You really had to work out well. We had an admiration society. Go and he'd liked the way i sang. I love the way he played in. And then we the only kind of conversations we had about that word just What songs we both agreed that we liked very much. And then he would work for two or three hours In the studio on the production of another and we sketch it out. Let's do let's start here. Let's do this surprise. It's blend over here. And and then after two or three hours when we felt we had kind of production on a number we said. Let's try one. We do that for three days. We did that for three days on both albums and it was wonderful thing because it was just the engineer and his manager helen keane who was the producer and bill and that was the it was nice and intimate very relaxed and Ajoy to do. I love the sound that we're about to hear we'll be together again. Can i ask you why you chose this one. What what are the nicest guys i ever met in the music. Business was called fisher. Who is an accompanist. For frankie laine. Whose american indian and one person who met me before i was popular just encouraged me to keep singing and he wrote you've changed another great standard. His very very talented talented man. And that's the reason that. I i liked the song that much. Plus the fact that billie holiday made it in an album called lady in satin and very influenced by billie holiday. Well let's this recording of. We'll be together again with my tony bennett singing accompanied by pianist. Bill evans No not no fee. Remember there's oh us too mom who.

"And of course that is Tony Bennett with rags to riches and of course the state taxes and probate all that kind of stuff it's actually designed to do the exact opposite it's designed to take you from riches to rags we do not want that to happen to you so every week at this time we have our state tip of the week so this week we're talking about life insurance and many of you I am sure have heard that life insurance is tax free well actually it ain't so it is income tax free but it is not a state tax free because you see life insurance according to the tax code is considered to be an asset right so it it's it's a transfer of money from you to somebody else so upon your death if you have a million dollar life insurance policy that life insurance is going to be paid to somebody else it's an asset that you've transferred from you to them so they consider that million dollars as part of your estate and therefore it is subject to estate tax so we have to be careful about that now currently the estate tax exemption this is under the new tax law that Donald Trump put in place eleven million dollars or a little more than that is not subject to estate tax okay that's this estate tax exemption so for most of you I guess I'm pretty sure you don't have a lesson plan dollars of life insurance okay so it does affect you so you have to worry about it right wrong because even if the current law stays in place it sunsets means it goes away in two thousand twenty five okay it reverts back but that's if they keep the law this line place okay now I've been doing this long enough I remember when the estate tax exemption was six hundred thousand and we could see a change in the political climate where people believe that you know people who have large amounts of well should pay a higher share of the taxes and they may decide that the estate taxes need to be levied on move on people with more than a million dollars for example are more than five hundred more than six hundred thousand as was the case not not too long ago so because of that if you have life insurance of any significant amount I think you should consider putting it into what what is called a life insurance trust an islet fat on boards happy yes and you won happy squirts trust me on that you don't want unhappy scores as a bad thing so here's here's how the they decide if your life insurance as part of your state there are three three tests are you the named owner if you look on and if you open the policy look inside your name AS says owner then that's you right you're the owner if you're pressed paying the premiums then they consider you to be the owner and then finally if you have incidents of ownership meaning you can direct with the cash value goes you can change the beneficiary you can do that kind of stuff then they they they perceive you they they deem you to be the owner okay and also there's no you don't have to meet all through those tests any one of those makes you the owner and is included in your state and subject to estate tax upon your death okay so what you want to do is make it where you are not meeting those test somebody else is that in this case it would be a trust and this is an irrevocable life insurance trust I. L. I. T. for short an eyelid and if you need if you put the policy in the trust then what happens is it's paying the premiums it is the owner and it has the incidence of ownership and therefore it is removed from your estate upon your death there would be no tax regardless of what the estate tax exemption is right so if you have large life insurance policies it is something for you to consider seriously because take advantage of the eleven million dollar exemption right now that we have it's not gonna be here forever I don't think right now if you are over fifty if you are retired or.

"We welcome in the head coach of the national champs. Tony bennett. How much sleep last night? Coach. A little bit. But it's all good. It's all good. When did it hit you? I don't know if it quite as yet. But no, I think that this journey has been amazing. And you know in the final horn went off, you know, after we wanted to overtime. I'd just sitting on that stool because you're up when they put you on such a stage for the floor. I just gotta bowed my head, and I just said, thank you. I was I was overcome with thankfulness and humble in a way that I felt like I, you know, so improbable, you know, how we want these games and all the things that went on. And I think it just it dawned on me, and you know, to see former players to see Joe Harris, Malcolm Brogdon there in the locker room after just to look at the guys that we had to we did a cool thing after that meant the world to me think those moments in it'll continue to thinking, but it was so good. So good. I couldn't help. But think your father having been able to broadcast one of your games when you played and having met your father, and I still tell people the practices were probably pretty boring to the players, but so clinical, and I just see so much of what you're doing. Now in what you're father probably gave you and for him to be there in insure that. What was the moment? Like when you saw dad afterwards. That was specially I got he arly comes to any games. He battles nerves so much. I think haven't been in the coaching profession, it's hard. But he came to the Sweet Sixteen league games. That was maybe the third game had been tuna probably. I dunno few years and then for him to not come to the final four game. But the championship. I was. I was glad he's there to see because I think it was like you said I heard you say it was really a high level game. And I know a lot of people it's gonna be so low scoring, but ironically, you know, it wasn't quite that way. But it was teams answering each other. And as I said, his fingerprints are over my coaching and. I watched him do it with, you know, maybe less talent and take programs beyond. So it was really good. That was that game. You mentioned was that one of your first years of broadcasting. I think it was nineteen ninety one or ninety two hours a senior. And we did the it was Butler verse. Yeah. Bay was that was that one here for stains doing that. I recall that a long time ago, and I remember that you didn't play much defense back there. Tony. Well, but I made it three pointer. If you remember to win it. I didn't know you could score. That's why I I'm always curious when a score is trying to teach defense because you guys are known for you're not as I did. We're talking to Tony Bennett. And he's head coach of Virginia. If I would've told you a year ago after the loss to you MBC. Hey, you're winning the national title next year. You would have said what? I would smile at you and said, that's you know, you're just trying to make me feel better because I feel like crap right now, honest answer. But, but I knew that it was going to be it's going to be a year that was going to be probably so important in all of our lives because of what we're going to have to face go through together. And absolutely new. We're going to need to rely on each other. And it it did some it did some unique bonding and boy built resilience in these guys in a way that I don't know what else could have from sports standpoint is like the player by that. This is a game. And this is sports. It's not life because there's so many worse things. But I do think it's a good message of like, you said hope and resiliency and guys come together. I I can't think of much better story in sports like, you know, for for us at least. What about bonding in the offseason, they have the devastating loss?.

Zach peerless Augusta free press there's a picture in your house. You've talked about before these three guys. Jay huff part of that twenty sixteen class. They've seen a lot of things now and their time at you've yet what are the emotions now attached to that picture? And you know, how does this change that picture in the feelings that you'll see when you see it? Yeah. When they came on the recruiting. Visit remember telling them, look, you're. The foundation has been laid by guys, you know, Joe, and Malcolm are here and all the guys went before. And we had one Sommese championships who've been to be lead eight I said, we're asking to build on that foundation. Even at that house on the hardest step. But if you're willing said, we'll take a chance at mentioned, the rocky post just I said, I want guys wanna chance to title fight and see them come in either as young men or boys and grow into men this season. And I'll mention what happened last year that that can only mature you. I don't know of anything else that would allow these guys to build a handle this situation, the playthrough stuff and to have a perspective and poise and resiliencey unless they went through something that hard, and they're very there's really good players. They don't probably get enough credit. Well, I think someone do their town. But they had something different about them collectively. I just one of our themes. I told them before the Auburn game as just bring your two fish and five loaves. It's a story in the bible. And I said it'll be enough. I said it'll it'll be enough for the masses. I said when you guys play the right way, the collectiveness of it takes over. And I've watched it, and I've stepped back, and I've seen this now seen mature through everything. And for them to do what they did, you know and how they've won. It's a great story really ofensive -ly. It seemed as if the Andre took charge there at the end you telling take charge or sometimes it seems like he's trying not. To take. That's you know, Dan regularly. Let's come in that he he I think he grew up in a way in this tournament in the second half of the Auburn game. And definitely and he was getting his shots. But he just he you saw them and that when he puts that into boy, it's he special, but no he trying to get on the ball ties. So good and our players. They understand. He's like all right. We gotta get him the ball in these situations and go to work, and you know, we did call. I'm not sure what the answer the question. We did. Call an action form to hit that three in the corner. And then one time time to great pass. But he yeah. I thought he really showed an aggressiveness that we needed. You. Need your top players to step up and make plays. And he did it on both ends you just speak to one that the poyser guy showed the overtime. And also the the previous games prepare them for that. They didn't seem either out of gas. They didn't to motion in handling the overtime. No. Well, I tell you we we had. Three Saturday, Monday games. We played Duke at home, and then we had to go to Carolina. And I I think I said this in the podium before. But I said this is how it's going to be in the tournament. And this is how we're going to prepare on Sunday. And and we did that every time we had those games, and we did it in the NCAA tournament that day in between and they knew what to expect. And I said you're built for this. You're prepared for this. Because this is what we did. And we started that process in January and that Carol do Carolina weekend. And I said just get after it, and we worked in between a lot of people's walked, actually, I don't know. What people do I just know from my experiences a coach in the Pac ten home important that day in between and how you prepare well prepare well and get after it. And so I think they they stepped in the moment they face pressure through the year through the turnament and all that stuff played into it. And that a lot goes to our strength coach, Mike Curtis. I mean, he has those guys as finely tuned machines. And and they just they work. We were smart at the end of the year with how much rest we gave them and prepare them. It's just a balance. Obviously, it it hit Tony Bennett with the national championship ninth. Active coach for the title for our current ACC coaches, Mike, shefty, ROY Williams, and Jim boeheim being the others Virginia six team to win. Multiple overtime games of the NC double A tournament in route to winning national title there. The first to do. So since era Zona in nineteen ninety seven. Cavs sixty six and six over the last two seasons. Best win percentage in division. One college basketball live crew restated Seth Greenberg, Jay Williams, and Jay Bilas, the every time in the last three games when things looked grim at the end of the game for junior late made plays. It looked grim at the end of regulation in this one when they were down to and then all of a sudden tied Rome drives, the baseline Texas Tech over helps the Audrey hunter. Who was spectacular? He wasn't good. He was spectacular twenty-seven points nine rebounds that three he hit out of the right corner is the biggest reason that Virginia's able to win the game. That was a spectacular shot. It took advantage of one of the very few defensive mistakes that Texas Tech made throughout the game. And they hung in there, and and grand fashioned to have a chance to win at the end. But Virginia made play after play that end of the overtime. They were great didn't miss a free throw were they were outstanding

NCAA Tourney Preview
"Tournament is allegedly underway. Let us bring a man who will be calling many of the games all the way through the national championship Turner sports analyst and somebody we watched play in high school. You're even old now south lakes high school. Let's start with this. I ask you as an analyst Dookie when you watch Zay on. What do you see? Wow. See explosiveness? I see, you know, see almost like a combination of a linebacker who jumps like Vince Carter. Is really nothing we've ever seen before in terms of his explosiveness athleticism. But also how hard he plays and steals activity has energy just off the charts. We're so used to comparing people you really can't compare them because there's really been nobody quite like him. That's how unique Zion. Williamson is all right grant beyond Duke. You've had a chance to study the brackets who do you like beyond the blue devils? I mean who jumps out to you as a team that could could at least get to the final four not further. While there's a lot of teams, and I know a mouse opposed to say this. But I think North Carolina is really talented trouble for that. I can get in trouble for that. So I if anyone says anything I'll just pretend I'm seeing Smith, but but not North Carolina. Roy Williams has done a fantastic job. I do think UVA they've had a lot of setbacks adversity in the tournament. But I do think this is this is Tony Bennett's most talented team. And I think they'll get through and get to the final four. I think Michigan state. I know they're in the same region as Duke, but I I was at the big ten conference tournament last week. I followed them Tom Izzo. This team is just balanced tough. They defend they can score. They really don't have a weakness at all as a sleeper team. I like Texas Tech the best defensive team in the country. They got a kid Jerry Kover who's probably wanted to top five players in college basketball that nobody knows about he's capable as they are. Taking a long run. And I love Florida state. You know, I love what they've done Leonard Hamilton. They won twelve of thirteen games in the regular season. People forget they got to the ACC conference finals loss to Duke. But they have a lot of death in very talented. So there's teams out there. Other than Duke believe it or not that are capable for long run. I'm gonna ask you to put all your old man hat for second. You and I did this a little bit the other night in Chicago during the big ten turnament. Will you go back to that last year? Even when you lost to Arkansas Scotty Thurman shot sorry to bring this up. You had seen your late and teams teams at three or four all Americans seem to time. And when you're watching now played there, but you're watching now this one and done era are the guys that he good. I mean, you look at them and think, yeah, these guys could have played when we did and won something. That's a good question. I think I think I think there's some really talented players and a lot of young talented players. But you know, the difference was you had older players more experienced players who had the opportunity maybe go pro who didn't think that UNLV team in nineteen ninety blue blue out Duke and Denver in the championship game. And you had Stacy Augmon.
2019 March Madness Begins
"So the March madness frenzy is now underway because the bracket. I'm holding one in my hands. Just won. I usually fill out two or three. But I'm holding one pristine perfect bracket in my hands. It's only perfect because I haven't yet started filling out winners and losers. That's where you come in. We've got the after hours bracket challenge. Now, you've got the bracket you've got a couple of days to Termine who the winners will be and how you plan on taking out the crew we are inside the rocket mortgage by Quicken Loans studio rocket mortgage is with you every step of the way to provide a seamless mortgage experience. I would love to hear from you about the bracket about what stands out can I tell you what stands out for me about selection Sunday. How wonderful it was to have CBS go on the air and sixty seconds later. We were doing brackets Beatty. Don't make me sit through bunch of analysis and predictions. When I know you're hiding the brackets. Gimme gimme gimme gimme the brackets now and PBS went back to basics. I would say this. If it was any other network. There is absolutely no need for a two hour show that favors the brackets until the final thirty minutes for heaven sakes. It was boring last year. And it was. Drama that was unnecessary because the brackets bring their own drama. So I love the fact that within sixty seconds of the selection show starting on Sunday on CBS. We were already seeing the first bracket which featured Duke as the overall number one this year wasn't that way until Zion Williamson returned and the blue devils ran through the ACC championship if you didn't stay awake. So you're on the east coast, and you didn't stay awake or you had other plans on Friday night and missed Dookie UNC. All it was a fantastic tug of war. It was so good all the way until the end. So we'll talk about that game as well. As what do you did to win the and secure its spot as the number one seed a lot changed over the last couple of days among the ones and the twos. But for the blue devils their fourteenth time as a one seed, although the first time is the overall number one since two thousand fifteen. The other three top seeds Virginia in the south. Now remember last year Virginia with coach Tony Bennett was the overall number one and lost to a sixteen. First time it's ever happened. You remember the name? So this year the Cavaliers the who's our second in terms of the top seed. So the second overall seed. And they've actually got the defending champ in their south region. So Villanova won a third consecutive big east title, but because of the roller coaster ride for the Wildcats season Villanova's a six seed so interesting there we'll hear from head coach Jay Wright a little bit later on. You also have the big bracket BUSTER coming out of the pack twelve Oregon the twelve seed after winning four games in four days to capture the automatic bid. So love it when that happens when a team that wouldn't have gotten in other wise ends up winning the conference tournament. That's the true definition. Of the madness and the little guy having an opportunity every team having the same opportunity to get into the field of

The thing is nuts. This thing. What ramp is which is literally I was on road last week. And I'm watching the UCLA USC. And I remember the UCLA players complaining that they did have freedom. That was the wildest thing on a was so bad. I was sitting there. Yes. Pretty because if you crossed half court, and you had the ball odds, are you just lifting up and shoot. Yes. It was not let's put this way. It was not coming back to you know, it was crazy that that. How about the power, those fools? You're talking about world class universities. I mean, you're talking about powerful institutions that you're talking about places of destination. And you're right. I I have never seen. I watched punch plaque. This. We also and I was flabbergasted at at like UCLA they knew how to play. They got good enough players those kids would buy in. I mean, you're saying a good. But those those got eight reminded me of ever will kills grassroots Bastable. A remind grassroots all-star game. Uptown you right now. And I thought this at the time if my team played like that we would be practicing after the game. Crazy. I'm telling you crazy. These guys was unreal. Like don't tell me that's an AU game. I would say that's not an AU team. I coached because that was absurd that game. And you know, what a good for that telling you good for them. Man. I'm all for you. But. That the a look, you know, what's going to happen Seth. Here's what's going to happen. Somebody going to get in. They're going to get to teams in and they're gonna end up winning two games. Right. They're gonna end up getting two teams to the elite eight or not alienate to teams to the freaking Sweet Sixteen and everybody's gonna talk about how everybody was wrong. I don't care. They can get five teams to the Sweet Sixteen that league's a mess. That's. Arison states could there so crazy that? Get on a run. But I I'm with you. Because I was I was literally flabbergasted, I think the game before that was like Michigan that killed the Brask. So I said out I'm gonna stay up. You know, that was an awful. Thought back ten miles. They just they just keep quaint ally ways. And just it's awful. They just you did that game. Yeah. So I said, you know, what I'm gonna stay? If I'm gonna see I'm gonna watch all Pac twelve I can't sleep anyway. And I was. So funny. I said you all through my mind was back in the day, the back, Jim you went out v when you had to walk between the two gyms because those two places that they play, and you waited an hour to to get to a pay phone. So you could put corners to make sure that I knew where you're going, right? All right. We vetted. I'm just telling you. I'm not done. I'm not done on that leak that league anyway. And there's some guy in one of these teams Walton was doing the Waltons world with them. And dude can they guys in that league to that can run and jump and play. He's. He's. He's him. He's final where he's I'm look. I mean that team is able that Noah Dickerson got Chris over Glassman of Mike Hopkins inherited a very very good team. I got the kid well score that league is while you're right about that. Hey, we'll talk to coach Tony Bennett of Virginia in a minute..
"tony bennett" Discussed on Courtside with Seth Greenberg
"They do. Courtside with Greenberg. Dockage the definitive college basketball podcast. Yes this courtside. And I went Bill Walton day pass. I did not even ask the great set Greenberg. What we were going to talk about because I've got to know he has some insider information on the whole, Nevada and Utah state thing. And I didn't wanna know I wanna be talking about it. And I want to do it on air. Also, lays gentlemen, this is the world's greatest podcasts. And apparently, I think we might have the world's greatest coach coming on. Tony Bennett is going to join us here in a few things. Listen, let's go Utah state Nevada. You have been defending the Caroline kid. What do you know? Well, I know from what speaking with equal at Nevada's. We can directly with some of the people and have some semblance inside information that I've coached class state. It's it's a tough environment. Coaching thing said coarser games that are not nowhere society. Should be said. Some things were said, I'm not condoning Caroline's behavior. You know, he's got the oh sticks and stones can break your Bose. Certain words, you said that obser- push over the edge. And I think what happened in that situation is your let's have lost to Mexico. No issue. They lost the San Diego State notice. Right sometimes team beach. Sometimes you have these better that night. That's fine. But and and you terrific team. They really are good team. America can escorted young freshmen bought shots. They're good. They're very very good team. But it was an environment. I've always thought I'm a supporter of court storming. I think you gotta have a plan to help make sure the kids get off safely officials get off safely that that. There's really no interaction fans. But you can't you can't stop people from saying with it or to say, and, you know, unfortunately, some things were said, I think the kid was emotional after the loss in that and responded in the way that he responded, I'm not condoning all of Utah state. I'm not condoning, I mean, I'm not I'm not condemning all of you. Utah state, and I'm not condemning all their students, but there are certain things that should not be set in unfortunate. Individuals said in and you know, the league I thought was interesting the league appeased, everyone believed basically said you state you handle your house, Nevada you handle your house. We don't want veal with this deal with it internally, which is fine. That's great. But if you nor certain things than you're condoning them, and I like, I went through situation that Mexico state a long time ago where Samantha things written on a on a greaseboard came to play there. Then some things you said, you're of course of the game. I had a choice to make was I condone that was either nor by northbound condoning that ager or is going to bring to light. I felt like I was going to bring to light in talking with the parties I talked to from from you know, from Nevada. I felt that it was the right thing to do to take a stand because a lot of ways, although I don't condone what George. Caroline did. He was a victim. And I didn't wanna see him paint that as. Do you think he's been painted as villain? Patronize avila. But you know, you know, perceptions reality that videotape is not very flattering. Let's face it. I'm he looked at in the mostly kids. So I don't think anyone I have not seen. I've seen some things that were actually posted that were. Agreed. Yes, that were sent to me that I would I wouldn't post share with anyone. But I think the video speaks volumes to. In a negative connotation of you just look at the video..

"It's the easiest way to get all the tickets to the games you want to go to vivid seats for the windy. We want to welcome in coach Tony Bennett who last night, man. Oh, man, UVA put an absolute clinic certainly in the last fifteen minutes onto cues coach, thanks for taking the time. Your team last night. I know you've had great games over the years. But that was about as good a fifteen minutes is I've seen all year in college basketball -fensive defensively. What were your thoughts on it three or so hot? And just started clicking them in our defense. Really? You know, it kind of I guess fueled our defense. So it was important to that was a tight game. And it it opened up with like I said it's sort of perfect storm. But I was it was fun to coach that you don't always that stretch was as you guys know as well as as all of I'm not sure Danny Hannity. Those. No, no, not like that brother. No. No. No, no. What did you say to you guys at halftime because you guys were pretty loose with the ball first half. And then the second half did a great job of taking care of the ball. And you did a great job of figuring out a way to get almost matching up with zone and then getting into the middle of ninja satanic from there. What was your message? Yeah. I think we had eight turnovers and we gave up eight offense rebound. You know, y'all look at those stats that we realized like say, you know, what do we have to do to eliminate losing? I, and we gotta have no you better have an a or a minus in, you know, taking care of the ball giving up, you know, or one and done on the rebounding, and then obviously, no fast-break points. And we just have those gotta clean up and play the game. And you know, our guys have been experienced, and and that known it can go both ways it takes a little bit of a Justin the length of it and all that stuff and also sometimes that zone just to you and you're playing well, so it's a double edged sword. But thought we just at the you know, we got some guys behind zone that could catch and finish. We we missed a few in the first half. So it wasn't. I didn't like blow them up was just like listen, if we're going to be effective as what we have to do. And I thought the Andre really guarded battle because they have some really good individual one on one players and our defense. I thought took a step, you know, in that stretch where we just spread out played are gaps. But we bothered individual shots. And then as I said kept him off at lasts without a company with the kind of the the shooting and the offense of output. Really? You know was a quick turnaround. Coach it you mentioned the word blow your team up. I'd seems to me senior back in the Bahamas and watching you now this looks like a team that you don't have to blow up very often is it. No. I think you you feel the mood. I think you know, practice has to be sharp and intense and challenging, and then, you know, if you sense it as a coach in a moment, whether it's at halftime at a time out just need to. Okay. Yeah. Sometimes have to trust that. But when you have experienced players, you know, it's this level. You gotta play the possessions. And it's whether there's different ways to do it. But I think the experience and no one, you know, we're we're in a race year support for us that was a huge game for us. Now, we still have a chance at a an ACC regular season championship. It was you know, it's just about not playing perfect but playing the possession..

Amazon's patent for caging workers was "bad" idea, exec admits
"Robots are going to take over. That's big prediction automation going to be taking more jobs than anything else. Probably why. And then you see this story. Well, you see the picture Amazon. This was written up in the Boston Globe. Amazon has has a patent on this device. That's kind of like a shark cage. But for humans in an automated facility. Now. Amazon says we're not putting this in place this is being used. But like a lot of companies we have an idea we patent it just so that we have if we ever want to use the technology. We don't want somebody to rip us off. Yeah. Now, but it's this cage. And this was granted by the US patent and trademarks trademark office in two thousand sixteen. It's this cage around a small workspace sitting atop the kind of robotic trolleys that now Dr racks of shells around Amazon warehouses. Now, the patent has been called by researchers quote, and extraordinary illustration of worker alienated stark moments in the relationship between humans and machines. But it's about safety. That's what they say. If they were ever to use this because they say they've never implemented this technology. They don't have plans to implement the technology, but the design appear to be an effort to allow humans to safely into robot only zones, which do actually exist right in Kent, for example, Amazon facility seven hundred and fifty pound robots topped with shelves. They scoot around on this area that surrounded by chain link fences, bring merchandise iphone cases, you know, coffee, mugs to employees who are waiting below to either place or retrieve items from windows built into the fence and if an unauthorized human, which that's just it. I don't know more dystopia and phrase than unauthorized human. Recognize them from facial recognition and if not pumped lasers into their chest at some point. If not authorized humid strays into the robot only zone. The company says an alarm is triggered and devices are designed to shut down to avoid hitting the person and killing them now Amazon and its patent suggested a way around this. Is what the cages for? Have to worry about shutting down production. If you have the humans in the human cages. From my. Okay. So every once in a while, I don't wanna say so much you're afraid of technology. Yeah. But it's all of the artificial intelligence concerned with everybody knows everything about you and your purchasing habits. Everything else. Does this add another layer to that? Or is this completely separate? It's to me. It's not so much the invention of this cage for humans. It's that this invention may be needed at some point that frightens me. Okay. I'm with you. Yeah. I get it.
