"To gender right which is great and when i was reading about it it seems like they brought you in because you said hey look gonna work for free. It's an internship and they were like l. Sure come on in and i. I'm very quick to note guests I do realize the tremendous tremendous fortune. I had that. I was able to do an internship for no pay and i am extremely cognizant that note not. Everyone has the luxury of doing that now. The good news is today. Nowadays those internships pay a million years ago. When i did my insurance. They didn't pay. And i do recognize how lucky i was fortunate. I was that. I could do one for no pay. But i was in grad school. I heard all these other kids talking about these. Things called internships and externships. So i called the raiders The team had relocated to los angeles the same year i graduated from college. The team had tried a few years earlier but been ordered back by the by. The court finally came down the year. I came down for grad. So i picked up the phone and i said i'd like to do an internship and they patched me through someone who said well what does that and i said. Well i'll work for you and you won't pay me. They said come on down. And that's how i started my career but again i recognized how fortunate i was to be able to do that. But the good news is that today. Those internships pay so. Did you when you went and did your internship for you in all the different areas or did you to stay in one area. Like because my son's in sport management he just graduated from delaware. He's interning at the hall of fame right now and he does marketing yeah. He's in the marketing he's in ticket. Sales like there's so many different things that are part of an organization. Like the raiders. What did you do as an intern. the right thing which is do as much as you can in every area that you can and learn as much as you can. I joined the organization as an intern in the legal department. But you know what. I went into the ticket office On on the day or so before a home game and helped alphabetized. The will call envelopes. And i went into the Scouting department and i helped them organize all the scouting material. I went to every department. And said how can i help. And that's another thing. I tell people. Yes it's important that you fulfil your primary responsibility but if you're part of a team roll up your sleeves and help your team mates. Don't sit there and talk about being a good teammate. If you're not rolling up your sleeves and helping everyone you can in every department you can. Let me tell you something that hunter telling you. I was going to be funny and say. Let me tell you something you know full. Well know if the left tackle can't get his job done if he needs some help walking his man the left guard is gonna slide over and say let me help you and you know it always interested me that people in the front office of an organization who wanted to talk so much about the importance of teamwork on the field of the left guard sliding over to help the left tackle left guard could handle both responsibilities of the safety helping the corner who was having trouble defending his man. We know what if that's what you expect teammates on the field. Why should it be any different in the front office. So you know if i could go into the ticket office and help them alphabetize ticket envelopes. Hey i was helping. I was being a good teammate. And be. I was learning about tickets so i think your son is doing the right thing and he should help in every department he can awesome. So do you think that because you were there like you started as an intern. And then they brought you back. They hired you. I don't know if it was one or two years later but then like you were there for like you said almost thirty years. How much of a benefit was that. Because you got the no. I'm sure you knew everybody in that organization. Because i think that's so special when you can walk down the halls and say hi so-and-so-and-so's you're saying instead of just saying hi. You know what i mean. I know what you mean. And i think it has all as you said you know. There's two sides to every coin. It was marvelous Just magnificent to be there. As long as i was i will forever cherish the memories but the flip side of that is i grew up on the job. So you know. I started as an intern. When i was in the early part of my twenties and i joined full-time and sort of the mid part of my twenties Not only grew up on. I not only grew up within the job. I grew up on the job. Not only in a job sense but in a growing up sense. So you know i wouldn't. I would just say this all of my mistakes. That i made and i made a lot of mistakes. They were with me. Those whole thirty years and i wouldn't trade it for anything but growing up on a job is Is a challenge. Because you're living with those mistakes you made from day one and the one person who it might surprise many people to know was the most understanding of making mistakes and my growing up on the job was out right. Yeah that's what i figured is that he kinda i. I think that with mr davis was just about you under you. Know he let you kind of expand and grow and and he trusted you. That's what it sounded like. He really trusted you. You were the one out you know up during the night and learning and doing all these things in let him sleep through the night you know. That's correct what if well you're absolutely right He did trust me and the biggest misconception about him is that you couldn't disagree with him. If that was true. I'd have been fired. Two two and a half weeks into my job because he walked into a room. I was sitting with someone he lit into that guy. Like i can only imagine a philosopher. Raptor would rip into And after a period of time. I realized he was wrong. So i said excuse me. You're wrong and i don't have a dainty voice at all at every And he look. I will never forget the look on his face when he turned around and looked at me. Like what and i said you're wrong. And he raised his voice. And i raised my voice and i said look if the facts on what you are. Basing your conclusion were accurate it would be a fair conclusion. But you're basing your conclusion on inaccurate data and we had a huge argument and ultimately after going back and forth for quite a period of time loudly to the point that everyone in the organization gathered outside the office to listen to us and one woman got boxes. Because she figured. I'd have to pack looking at me said okay. I gotcha i gotcha. And we went on. And i will tell you guess. We disagreed more than we agreed over the thirty years i was with him or almost thirty years and that was fine with him which which is awesome that is that the way to go in and what of what organization that you know he built and then you've got to sit right along and help them build it. I mean i know that you were more on the executive side. The nfl side dealing with all the day to day stuff more than the players side. But i play with so many guys. That came from the raiders. One of my really good friends when i was with the redskins past danny turkey. I don't know if you remember danny. of course. of course. I will say i never called him danny but i i remember that was just for you right. Yeah oh yeah yeah we. We had so much fun. It was really savvy when he passed but like oh man just to what an organization. What a place and You've seen it grow now to where it's in vegas and how do you feel. How'd you feel about it. Moving leaving going to vegas. Next emotion and these are not mutually inconsistent It's a magnificent stadium and for those fans that were excited by the move and we're going to follow the team to vegas whether they live in the bay area or elsewhere they'll to vegas for the games.

I i go so far to say know we really tourism has caused so much harm to our iena to our people You know yeah Economic boost if you wanna serve tables and change dirty sheets and dance a hula with the headdress. That's somehow not tied to hawaii culture or wearing a coconut bra which was unheard of You're really into Enjoying a false narrative of our culture than you would enjoy healthy but for the most part not just hawaiians but local people here who have made this place their way. They don't want the tourist here. We have been Collie out to the so-called leaders of for by e to make changes to honor community. I and now that the pandemic is somehow calm.

Yes She was a fierce critic of a mass Corporate driven tourist industry as well as the military in hawaii and the ways that these two industries have Harm toy lands and peoples in in various ways of you know but she famously said in many of her public talks. Don't come to away. don't come to hawaii because when you come here on you know. Corporate airline and you stay of corporate owned hotel and go to corporate chains. Corporate owned chains are here like all of that money is going back out of the way so it really is an extractive industries in so many ways and it has made it Impossible in some cases fresca visit places where we Once we're able to fish you feed ourselves It has also resulted in resort being built over sacred burial site And it's an industry. That just perpetuate economic inequality in a way that She also wrote about gendered. You know and is About the prostitution of of public is what she Now the analogy that. She's so talk about this industry so she would be I think one of the best ways to honor her is to continue to use her analyses and also extend them and we're still seeing In the midst of a pandemic you know a massive influx of for in hawaii. And i absolutely know that she would say don't come. Don't come here Particularly during this time you know until we have control of those Of our lands of our country of of the ways in which people travel to the island. it's not benefiting i didn't not benefiting yeah i know that people can relate to some of that and just thinking about Some of these places and and respectfully visiting the land.

I believe what's his name Fabulous it just kind of brings a little bit of tears to my eyes because it's unstable fresh and rock traveled on But i i guess one of the things that i was inspired by listening to everybody's conversation was that you know she. She not only reminded us of who we are who we are as lovie As made as people but she further challenged us okay she she challenged us to go to a higher level of consciousness. Something that that rises above or a really pushes through our brainwashing or indoctrination as good old american kenaka goodell's american hawaiian surf saved by the almighty United states of america And unfortunately that brainwashing and indoctrination as Resulting a lot of harm to our people as our own nation as their own king done and as soon as native people So i think that we can portent she that consciousness. She would say things to just make you think more critically and she was just brilliant that way you know. She challenged you know You know the power players and what they dictated to us was supposed to be our reality and she was so bold and so courageous to be able to do that These power structures exist today. like noise was saying you know if we look at the the corporatization of hopefully if we look at the people in power there generations You know a few generations That come from the genealogy of missionary and business people that landed here that ended up making their lives. Here and there million dollars here off of our people off of our culture of our enough and the military who comes still occupies more of our land base. You know from a racial perspective than any other place throughout the continental united states And they do that on purpose because they're trying to keep us in our place.

Aaron welcome in. Please anything you'd like to share or any introductions you'd like to make i don't have a hunter for having us again to talk about our coup and her legacy. I think anything. I think roy captured in her control. Just beautifully was on any case. Meant to so many of us not just as this like political figure but also for me just a really influential just person in my life as well. She really influenced us Again not only in this sort of larger public sphere about ourselves about our history but also for us as individual kenaka about you know what power we have in our own bodies. Our own money like We heard her talk about in that speech. He just About what we can do right to impact the movement for people and again not just this are we level but also just as our individual selves a and for our own. Ah or our families Just teaching us how to you know. Be strong and be brave. Just like her. I think Also you know just wanted to emphasize to the idea that she really despite sort of this powerful figure that she project she also was just a a human who was faced because a lot of critique and when we talk about her bravery it means like you know just even the security of herself and become. Forget you know. She was under so much Pressure and stress. But that never let her. that never scared her off. You know she Just remained brave. I think throughout her life the things that she said where things are so many of us wanted to say And she was just a really powerful voice for for us for our la hui mom and just seeing the outpour of You know love in support for her work in in some of the words that she shared. When news of her passing came forward. There are many people who wait in. There were even signs across hawaii and people You know one of her. Her big quotes made it. You know to different places in full started remembering her. And just knowing her influence on so many people in hawaii and again like i said here on the continent probably worldwide to a for you aaron knowing how all of these words resonated across tribal boarders beyond. You know the island of hawaii. Your thoughts on maybe why some of this resonated with people who who were from different places around the world sure she. I think the way that she all she framed. Her analysis of hawaii was not just Isolated does she was really wonderful at connecting Coa e to the larger sort of global movements for indigenous rates. I think across the world Her work really just transcended insurance grasp. A lot of ways like the ideas. Hawaii is sort of just like a you know a small example of American colonialism fish sort of branch out just to help us identify. What are the connection. That i feel like Other people really resonated with that and honestly she they resonated with her. Just her strong presidents or strong boys I was a graduate student at ucla and cool in hawaii. And so i knew of her influence there. And i had heard about her influence across the pacific and across native america But when i was there. I really saw just How impactful she was eight.

Receivers to Target in the Late Rounds of your Dynasty Rookie Draft - burst 02
"Take the floor. I the next receiver. Which was after. Marshall at will was joss palmer from tennessee. He went to the chargers with the fourteenth pick in the third round palmer's real interesting i don't think he was on many people's Pre-draft list At least i did see him on any sleeper list. Or anything and i didn't actually do much scouting on them but He's interesting profile. He's got a lot of speed. Got decent size. A not a whole lot of opportunity but mike williams ended up leaving which i think. A lot of people are expecting with this massive contracts. You know this guy that could end up being the number two For herbert for years to come. So i don't see him overtaking keenan allen anytime soon but this guy could end up with one hundred plus targets. You know if if the things shake shake the right way so he's definitely somebody on my radar because at these spots. We're going to kind of get into this. Which you really want is somebody is going to be tied to an offense in quarterback that's going to have lost ability or you guys have You know opportunity because there's not really that much talent ahead of so i do like Palmer you know. I've seen him go all over the board as far as rookie draft. So you know. I've seen him go as far as late. Second in rookie drafts. And all the way into the fourth round so it it really is dependent the rest of your league of where you're gonna have to take him but somebody that i. I'm willing to sit on the back of my roster and and maybe wait on a year and see if he can get a role in in san diego to go forward. This is one of really interesting prospects because like you were saying how this is a guy that i did not have on my radar before the draft. I think we did a rookie draft. Or so. And i do not believe that this guy got a practice rookie draft. I believe that this guy got drafted Discussed at all in like guys like rookie. More and cal. Trask redrafted those guys. Over josh palmer but all of a sudden palmer gets drafted into third round. Comes out of blue now. He's gong to destination with the chargers. Where like you said tile is a genuine opportunity for palmer to become the number two receiver there in the long term because of the deal with mike and so there's a genuine genuine however my my concern with palmer is less about the opportunity and i think that's really what has helped him rise on a lot of draft boards and his why he's going in rookie dress. It's more of the talent and the fact that he wasn't even on my radar heading into draft is a little bit concerning. Because you want a guy that you are faithful on their talent because out of everything talent is what shines is not necessarily the opportunity being at the right place in the right time is good in the short term redraft. But if you're thinking long term you. Thinking dynasty will situations chains on a year to year basis. So do we believe that. Joss palmer in the long term will be able to be the number two receiver for the chargers. Or will they just go ahead and get just in harbor a new number two target after year or two and that's us a genuine the debate and something. I'm conflicted with because sure. I like josh palmer at the moment but i don't know if five years from now if just palmer's going to be relevant so for this reason i'm a bit conflicted unjust barmer although the guys that were drafted after joss palmer. I'm a little bit higher on those guys that i will look to target in my dynasty. Drought yeah well one thing palmer. He was at a tennessee correct. Yes yes so like i. I remember watching You know because i'm uk fan. So i remember watching tennessee. I think they were the only team in the entire country. That had worse quarterback play than kentucky last year. So you know they. I remember when we played them. What they were they they. We knocked out like three of their quarterbacks because they were so bad they were just thrown. Pick after pick. So i really do think that there might have been some talent here that maybe went under the radar from a lot of people. Because the sats weren't there but you know i think a lot of it might have been the quarterback. Play had absolutely atrocious flight that that's a great point there. That's that's concerning though just because you don't exactly know what palmer is going to be able to become. But if he ends up falling this guy that wouldn't be opposed to picking but but but as we were talking about you know we were talking about cell windows you know in no guys that i didn't care for because i don't really plan on playing palmer scenes one of the reasons why i think he's interesting. Is br regardless ever played for your your team your dicey team. I do think that there's going to be a cell window. At some point. Mike williams ends up leaving even if they do bring in another number one wide receiver to go next to keenan allen. You know somebody that's more talented the palmer. There will probably be more than likely be a weaker two week window or something at some point that people will get really excited about in. Call him a sleeper. And then you might be a turnaround. Flip them for profit

Final 2021 NFL Draft Quarterback Rankings: Trevor Lawrence and Then What?
"So guys let's start off with the quarterbacks as this is probably the least eventful group especially because we just let mark handle this position group. Because that is his forte his speciality. We don't even really need to go through the ordering or anything specific with this one as we're going to do it the other position groups but the thing that's worth noting is it. Mark was highly reluctant to really go past mack jones and then after thinking it over he threw in kellyn mind. Davis mills kyle. Trask jamie newman. And that was pretty much it so i think we can all agree here that the quarterback class in in this year's nfl draft isn't exactly very good on the back end. There's a lot of really good talent at the top but as we start to push towards the second and third round like we don't even have a third rounder in this group. There's not really a lot of good options now. It doesn't really tier that way. Joe obviously you have the tran said quote unquote time trevor. Lawrence. and then. There's a lot of debate on who that actual second quarterback would be adjusted sales from ohio. State zack wilson from byu. Mac from alabama. It seems like the jets. Presume that zack wilson from byu. And i mean. There's a lot of rumors that three the san francisco forty niners are really all in on mac jones but we'll find that out next thursday. It's gonna be interesting. I mean outside of the top five quarterbacks in legit all five of them could go for the giants would be ideal for the new york giants. That would be absolutely but outside of those five. It's it's kind of a crap shoot between callum on. I'll trask davis mills. Yeah i actually wasn't surprised to of see the look of pain almost on mark's face when he had to we almost twisted his arm into throwing out his like second and fourth round quarterbacks. This is a very top heavy quarterback draft class and part of that could just be the position. Where if you've got a quarterback who is able to be accommodated starter. He's probably going to be a first rounder and probably a high first
Managing Neurodegenerative Diseases with Better Data to Improve Outcomes
"Bill. Thanks for joining us. Great to be with you today. We're gonna talk about active bioscience and its efforts to bring personalized than comprehensive care to patients with neuro degenerative conditions. You're starting with multiple sclerosis. Oh let's start there for listeners. Not familiar with the condition. What is multiple sclerosis well. It's a chronic lifelong debilitating disease it. It strikes about one hundred thousand new patients per year. There's about nine hundred and fifty thousand patients in the us. Two point three million worldwide with the disease it strikes relatively young and once late twenties often Disproportionately affects women. Three to one It's an autoimmune disease by its nature. it's progressive. It's being driven by inflammation and immune modulating forces which translate over time to neurodegeneration adding demolition in accidental damage on the disability from this diseases significant they may be affected as patients by issues ranging from mobility up to specificity pain fatigue. Cognition of there may become more bits of depression. Urinary symptoms abolish shoes. Ocular manifestations of the sum total of which translate often to about fifty percent of patients. Being out of the workforce. In twelve years. So op devastating. When you think of the age of diagnosis and then the potential for disability up scenario where is great hope as it relates to more advanced sophisticated and powerful therapies. there's now eighteen approved so called deep. Tease disease modifying therapies Other expensive on the use may be somewhat unguided for lack of Superior insights as to how to apply them. Blessed pointing said make. This is an expensive disease or condition with about three to four point. Five nine in lifetime cost at. What is it like to live with this condition. And as it progresses How do people lose abilities or find their symptoms. Worsen yeah these. These patients are tracked along a ten point scale called the expanded disability severity scale and it's a function of how the symptoms stack or accumulate over a period of time as laws the severity of those symptoms. What's really important along. The way to be managing the level of inflammation or immune mediated processes at work at a given point in time. So the goal is to manage disease activity to as low of a loveless possible to quiescence. Unfortunately the tools to be able to measure disease activity are extremely limited today and what we want to avoid the along. The way our relapses relapses can be the severity. Where a patient may end up in the er or hospital which translates often to tend to twenty five thousand dollars in cost and patients who may not recover to baseline and then we want a slow progression along that cathway so it's a combination of that need to be managed carefully attentively and unfortunately i think we may talk about a little bit. Further of the tools for measuring patients are subjective qualitative in really nat equipped for the task at hand. How is the condition treated today. And how actively managed our patient. Yeah so the the the technology's arranged from these disease modifying seventies that are very powerful in nature but to which it's important to balance between the fact they may have been what might be adverse events or side effects or tolerability. So there's this constant know efficacy versus risk equation. That's going on and with eighteen drugs across multiple mechanisms of action and varied routes of administration figuring out which patient which therapy is very difficult particularly for lack of biology based incites or the ability to khemka. Trask similar clinical types. So it's it's really the best attempt to match but might take twelve to eighteen to twenty four months to tell clinically whether a drug is being effective or not. So you've got the disease modifying therapy in an attempt to tamp down disease activity than their symptom management through use of Might be physical therapy. Occupational therapy could be medical therapy. The average ms patients on eight other drugs or medications may be under the care of a urologist gastroenterologist ophthalmologists as part of the team as well so care team coordination will become issues along the way in addition to. What are the right insights that you towards the right treatment in the right management Symptoms and trying to avoid accumulated disability.

"I wanted to ask you when jon gruden came aboard. Obviously you know this man. Lives breeze football. He's so enthusiastic about what he does. But i wanted to. Just get your take on what it was like to see him. Step into that position. One of which is said that was one of the first Kind of the decisions that you've got to sit in with with al. As far as a head coach went. John brought an energy with him a passion. You know i'll use. I love alliteration. So i'll go with zip and zest saying that. We were missing at that time. We needed that. You know you. You know what you've covered the new cover the team. You've covered the team. You still cover the team. You know what that look is that he gets on his face and that look is not simply a look. It's it's a demeanor and we needed that at the time. Well i wanted to ask a lot about al davis because obviously you had a relationship with him you got to see these inner workings behind the scenes on everything that went on with this team and espn is going to put out a special a thirty for thirty called al davis versus the nfl. And that's coming out february four th just a few days before the super bowl which also covering cvs. And i i wanted to your take here on. Alverson is the nfl. We know about the battles with pete. Rozelle how everything. He went through to be able to move the team. And now it's almost I don't wanna say a staple with different franchises but you you see more and more. It's more commonly accepted that a team might for instance go from san diego to l. a. or saint louis back to la or you're you're saying the moves from different teams and in some senses was not just a of how he hired in diversity that he brought into this league but also because he was known for being that maverick he was known for being the guy that was trying to set a precedent so that teams could do these types of things. So what did you think about al versus the nfl and his battles with roselle to get what he wanted done. While you're absolutely right. He was Someone who is willing to stand up for the courage of his convictions whether they were popular or not One every one else in that league honors meeting disagreed with him and disagreed with him vehemently. He stood up for what he believed. And when you were referencing the subsequent t moves lock. The the rams moved from la to saint louis and then back to la. You know there was another movie that came to mind for me..

Having a girl. Worked for the raiders and gene in a very loud booming voice. Not yelling but just in a booming voice She's not a girl she's a raider and i almost popped that gene upshaw. Did that meant more. Than i was probably able to convey to him. Although i certainly did try to convey to him how much that meant that he would respond in the manner. He did Both what he said and how he said it. And what a legend he was and for people like myself as a woman That's worked through the ranks of the nfl. Trying to get to a position here where i am now being able to cover a team and being able to be a part of the media and report on this great sport in the nfl It's taken a lie. And i'm sure your story has taken a lot become the first woman. Ceo and. i wanted to get first of all your take on what it was like to work for a man like al davis who as you said earlier gave people second chances and third chances that that really brought diversity into the nfl with the hires that he made including yourself. Well he did. He did what You know a backup. He hired without regard to race gender or any other individuality which has no bearing whatsoever on whether one can do a job. And the reason i stumbled over my words to start was to note At the outset. And i will now note. He did that decades and decades and decades before these were topics of conversation within the national football league and in many other places so he hired tom flora's and a number of years later hired me and then a number. A few years later hired art shell and he hired art twice. But i'm referencing the first time. He hired artists head coach. I listed that way simply for logical reasons to note that he was doing this so long ago. And the topics that you and i are discussing right now diversity inclusiveness on your role and doing all that you do so magnificently covering the team and the league on. This was back in the early part of the mid eighties. These things you and i are discussing warrant even topics of conversation with the national football league and in many other places back then so again the reason i stumbled at the outset was not only to note that he hired in the manner he did but to note that he did it before others or even thinking of doing it. And you look now at the nfl and there's been into these different I guess you could say setbacks where it comes to bring in diversity. There's a couple of latino coaches. Mike tomlin left is the one african american coach in the nfl. And of course the jets have great hire. They're bringing the first muslim into the nfl. The former 49ers defensive coordinator. But when you look at how..

"We welcome in chris during Who gives us her. Quite a look ahead to tomorrow's game. Chris in most years florida hosting lsu of the sec this week. It's been pretty quiet. I am curious as you know those two teams so well especially from florida side What what are they thinking as they get one of their bitter rivals in a bitter rival that they are a prohibitive favorite. It is weird. Isn't it paula. Me and thinking back to win. This game was originally scheduled. I thought most lsu people felt like we're gonna get a chance to play later in the year we'll get healthier. We'll get miles brennan back. We'll be in better position. And i would argue that. They're actually in a worse position now than when they were originally scheduled in october. So i it's kind of a weird dynamic with a lotta florida. Fans looking forward to sec. Championship game next weekend for me. This is all about. Florida has nothing to do with their opponent. Lsu it's about getting right offensively full full-fledged dress rehearsal right costumes everything. Let's go for what we're gonna do next week. I i honestly been kind of disappointed with florida's offensive performance. The last three weeks dating back to the vanderbilt came. Because they just look inconsistent. They look like they walk through a haze periods of time. They look like they're not executing and part of it's their own fault for looking so good against arkansas in the second half and missouri against georgia. We set the bar pretty high for them but focused level has not been there for a full sixty minutes. I want to see all fence. Get back to executing at the level. They were early in the year defensively. Let's get some things shored up. Let's figure out how to keep from giving up these long passing plays. Let's get generate some more pressure on the quarterback. Let's be able to to penetrate and stop the run something. I thought they did. Well against tennessee last week but The thing i'm gonna keep my paul. What are the numbers for. Kyle trask because obviously this is a game as you said against a A bitter rival one. That beat florida by fourteen. Last year florida's got a chance to return the favor but they also have a chance to outduel in back to back weeks what mack jones get did against the very same defense. And don't think that winning the heisman trophy is not something that dan mullen really wants. For contrast and something that will help his program significantly going forward in on that subject. How do you compare. Kyle trash to meg jones. And that's really his main competition now and that we know we know what had next two weeks especially next week but what what what what separates college trask. If anything well first of all. I love both of these guys you know as a former receiver. I love the the accuracy. I love the the the way they re defenses and get the ball to the right guy. On what the defense is dictating But i would go back and say kyle. Traffic is probably had a tougher. Time than what mack jones at and. That's not taking anything away. From mac ios but look at how. Good this offense of line is for alabama. Look at how well they've run the football over the last six games or so look at what. Najji harris has done. Devante smith the reason why iraq jones's numbers look so good on the deep passes over twenty yards and no disrespect. Mac has been really accurate. But when you're throwing a guy that's five yards behind the nearest defender. It makes it a little bit easier. So again i think without the run game florida certainly not able to run the football very well. I don't think they're offensive. Line is the most consistent So i think the load that kyle. Trask bears a little bit harder to to carry them. What jones does now with that being said. Look at the weapons of florida has i. I don't think i've ever been able to say at least in recent years. That florida has more receiving weapons around their quarterback than what alabama does. They've been absolutely loaded but Looking at the way that that not only kind of is utilized trayvon. Grimes justin shorter. All those receivers. Jacob copeland has come on as well Forgetting about tony. Who might be one of the biggest Factor mismatch guys in the sec. Right now but the way. They use the running backs as well. That was something that we saw against georgia so a lot of different guys. That are helping. Kyle trask out. But i think with the advantage that alabama has on the offensive line and that run game to complement the throws down the field. I think kyle may have a little bit more of a impressive Season just because of how much he's had to do himself chris. Couple of games. I want to ask you about one. Particular auburn at mississippi state mississippi state has been up and down we. We've been through that conversation. But i'm really curious about auburn. Because they've had some really good moments this year and then some clunkers especially lately. I know what you're doing here paul. You love it. When i go off on auburn and it's been up and down year with them right early in the season. I was really down on him. I was starting to get A little bit more positive with the way they were able to run the run the football figuring out who they were with take bixby and that offensive line and then they got hit with a bunch of injuries up front Bixby was was banged up.

"trask" Discussed on The Business of Sports With Andrew Brandt
"Better. How are you going to contribute? What is your value? So I think you when I are staying very very similar things. In that regard I sat an teen interviews listening to people. Go on and on about me me me me me me me and I'm down myself thinking you have not shared with me. One thing you will do of value for this business. He's talked about is how this business will be good for you so I think you and I are a nice little Van Dyke Brandon with art. Early Roy Name Union so interesting because my assistant at Green Bay. No we're GONNA talk about our lives in the NFL. But my assistant in the packers was a woman and who came into. Green Bay Packers. Now she knew who? Brett farve and the packers were but ask her to name five players on the team and this is for someone living in Green Bay. Ask Her what a football play look like. She probably couldn't go into that but she had a skill that was so important for me. Which was data analysis? She came from a trucking companies Snyder. Trucking and she could call eight the reams of data. That is you know better than anyone came in from the NFL every night in whatever it ship it out access or Microsoft whatever and collate and collect and organize and categorize for me. The way I'd like to see every morning was perfect. She had the perfect background to do that. I didn't care that she didn't know football plays I didn't care that she didn't know stats so for the jobs were talking about. Everyone gets caught up in sports. The Games it. What draws its romantic. I get it but you're applying to do a special skill as you said to make the job easier. Whoever you're talking to and that will usually involves segmented narrow approaches to things. That aren't the sexy things out there. And yes maybe you'll be brought in on Goshi conventionally. Maybe you'll get to work with a player eventually but if you're going into it for that kind of Glamour. Forget it because it may happen down the road and it won't be that glamorous or sexy and then you're just doing a job and especially say this to people wanted to be agents because if they think it's a cool life I mean it is all recruiting and it is all trying to present to twenty one. Twenty three year olds when thousands of hundreds of others are doing the same. And it's a rough life. It's a rough life and whether you are an agent or a team executive when that phone rings at three in the morning it is never a good thing so to your to your point about the life that you lead just know. Those halls are gonNA come in at three in the morning. Whether you're working for the team or the client and you're going to have to deal with it You know one other note will make while we're on. This topic is unseen times during interviews. You here or you know now that I'm not interviewing for positions in the national football league but in other millions on the team player. I'm a team player on a team player. Well let's talk that through a minute because being a team player means you never get to say. Well that's not in my job description or that's not my job or that's not what I do. Not No no no no no you told me. You're a team player. A team player means when something needs to be done. Roll up your sleeves and help out your co-workers. Let me tell you something. If you're the left guard and the left tackle was having trouble blocking you're gonNA slide over and help. The safety and that corner has playing man to man needs some help. You're going to head over there and help so if you're in the front office. The same rule applies in the last thing. I'll say on that sort of the interviewing trying to get a role in sports thing is. I'm an maybe this describes me as much as anything amy. I'm I'm fascinated by people not really resume not really degrees. Not really what they write you know or say or quote I'm like are you interesting period. Are you interested. I want to work with people who are interesting. And it's funny because I'm watching Lance documentary. And he's predicted he's prickly but you know what he's interesting and when. I look at resumes sometimes way down the resume you know after all the degrees in the fancy jobs. I'll see something like you know. Worked a summer camp taught swimming to Developmentally Disabled Children. And a look at the person the man or woman say. Tell me about that. Tell me about that about that. Forget all the degrees in the fancy jobs and then once in a while you'll see that person eighteen twenty twenty five thirty years old light up light up like it was so great these kids and they couldn't swim at all and they were disabled in this. And by the end of the summer this in a connected with this one named Jeremy and he's from Chattanooga Tennessee. I'm Mike Guy and I'm like yes. Yes that's who I want. Because they're interesting they're passionate. They got something. I want those people around me. I don't want fancy degrees weather where they're boring so when I interview. I'm looking down that resume like all. Tell me about that. And that's where you see what people are made up. You know what not only is that beautifully stated but it provides a wonderful opportunity to talk about a fancy degree at a Fancy University Stanford and I will note right now for all your listeners that our respective colleges Stanford for you cal for me. Pac twelve rivals. Although when we were there it was the PAC ten and I do want to be very clear. I was not there. When it was the pack eight pack twelve rivals and Andrew. I enjoy our good natured. Good spirited teasing and bantering about our rivalry and did I mention. We have the axe right now and yes. I know. It's the first time in a Lotta years that I had to mention it. All that all that good natured teasing rivalry aside. I have tremendous tremendous respect for your school Academically IT'S ATHLETIC PROGRAM DOESN'T GRADE ADJUST. I think the world of David Shaw had an opportunity to work with him. I won't go on and on and on about that. I won't said ask you this question again. Your background at Stanford you have a law degree agent team executive professor all the other things that you do at this moment in time would colleges exploring if and how and to what extent. They want to resume intercollegiate athletics. Do you believe that? Anyone is appropriately representing the interests of the athletes or the schools looking after them in. Your mind is the NC two A. Looking after their best interest in your mind or should they be represented by someone or some ones or someone else or a body. It's a great question. Amy and a full disclosure and I have to answer it this way to begin with. I am an employee of Villanova University. I work closely with our athletic department. We have twenty three sports. One of which is well known. Nationally are art. Men's basketball program and I address these issues with our athletics department often. I think that there has been a clearly a power disparity between the NCAA and the athletes. I do think programs are in the process of recognizing athlete rights. More than they ever have and I do give credit where I know. A lot of people don't to the powers-that-be that in recent months have worked on this name image likeness recognition in college sports where they're going to allow players to develop income based on their name image likeness as long as it's not done by the school as long as it's not as long as they have guardrails that they're going to try to put up to say it's not a guy is for recruiting are giving packages. That shouldn't be loud. It's just more based on the talent of the player and going out and getting frankly. Endorsement Third Party endorsement. And I'm involved in sort of working on those guardrails with Villanova into larger extent. The Big East conference but yet the power disparity has always been there. The question is what a better model and I've talked to. Jeffrey Kessler talked others. That say the model should be. Hey have no guardrails. And if Joe Chevrolet wants to pay. Joe quarterback a million dollars for driving their car. So why are we look into whether that's unfair whether that's illegal whether that shady or not I understand that argument and I understand free market obviously studying collective bargaining but I? I do think that college is different than the pros. So my point is whatever concept of amateurism we think of and I know there are people that think amateurism instead. It's just a sham. But I have a different feeling so I'm a little more conservative here. In the last thing I'll say getting back to Villanova is I mentioned. Twenty three sports and I mentioned one that people know of that. One is the only one that makes money and not a lot of money. So those other twenty two sports have to be funded somewhere and some of it comes for men's basketball. I don't know what it will look like if the guardrails are off. That's my my concern. In other words will twenty twenty-three Sports Become Fifteen? Sports and the hierarchy is always basketball. Football Women's sports and non revenue. Men's sports seem to be the most at risk so I do wonder about that. I am a huge proponent of college athletics beyond football and basketball and that is my worry. If as I say the guardrails come off well first of all in response to what you just said. My overwhelming thought is shame on me that I failed to know your Villanova responsibilities directly when posing this question as opposed to simply indirectly by having noted that you're associated with the school This is my very very first time leading an interview so you were just an absolutely magnificent teammate. You're the linebacker the Middle Linebacker who just realized I didn't understand the signal and you fixed it for me. So thank you very very much because I miss that and I appreciate that you disclose that at the outset and the information you shared was very very thought provoking and interesting. I I appreciate it and There's a lot to be thought. Through most instances like this. I'm of like mind with you. That there's not a simple answer and that things need to be thought through and we always no matter what we do whether in this instance or any other need to give thought to the law of unintended consequences and it sounds like that's exactly what you doing in your role at Villanova which is looking not only the consequences of actions but any unforeseen or unintended consequences. And I think that's terrific anyway. Thank you my Middle Linebacker for saving me on that. I got home my interviewing skills. No no worries and again pre rain here. The one thing I I'm looking at right now Villanova's this spring. Sports student athletes that had their seasons canceled are given another year of eligibility by the NCAA. Now of course the says will okay. We're going allow US schools. Figure it out. Figure it out. If they're gonNA have scholarships or with the recruiting is for the incoming class based on the old the fifth year players coming back or fourth year players so that creates some logistical issues. I'm talking Villanova about. Hey maybe we'll do a course for these springs for student athletes coming back. Who a lot of them have finished their coursework. So they'll get their extra year eligibility and again. We're not talking about basketball. That's a winter sport but we're talking about baseball and field hockey and Lacrosse and soccer and and those kinds of sports. So you know it's interesting to me. I I getting back to your earlier question. I am a big of high school in college athletes. When it comes to working sports I just think they bring it discipline. They bring us understanding of sports. No matter what sport so you don't have that ramp up period to get people and knocked and knocked whatever. The word is inaugurated into the business of Sports. So I am partial admit to a bias fully admit to bias when hiring or even my research assistance having a background in athletics is a real plus to me. Well add to your point about coursework for those eligibility has been extended. I will use an example from your car. Your Mater College Grad School Law School. That is And I use this example all the time and other Stanford man for whom I have the highest regard and tremendous respect Richard Sherman. Richard Sherman had completed his undergraduate degree and had eligibility remaining so went on to begin work for a master's degree while still eligible to play at Stanford. I love the idea of additional coursework. And if you're able to do that your students in those athletes will be tremendous.

Thank you andrew and i shared publicly at the time that which i will tell you and it's a sincere sincere can be i was overwhelmed by that and me andrew me amy me. I be twist. I was at a loss for words and as i then later sports illustrated i said i'm at a loss for words is for which many many people thank you exactly and it talked about al story by john was so great because it really kind of dove been as you know better than anyone how a lot of his quote unquote bold and maverick ways back in the day are now sort of appearing <hes> in different forms different machinations different versions but you have the bold maverick owner jerry jones. You have these new innovations in technology which which he was always talking about the emphasis on analytics which at that time was more like coaching trends and use it. I'm sure better than than anyone where that bold iconoclast aspect in the days now rearing its head in different ways today it it is and and <hes> he was ahead of his time and a lot of ways and look. I know you have so many people around this country and frankly beyond beyond that are enormous andrew brandt fans and they should be because the work you do is absolutely magnificent and i marvel by the way i'm gonna make a little footnote aside hi dear. I'm mark how much you do whether it's teaching were speaking or writing you do a tremendous amount of tremendous work but my point in raising how many fans you have is i am well aware that you have fans of all teams and you have fans who hate all eighteen notwithstanding all fans of yours so if some of the people that are listening to this will be raider hater and they will have hated out <hes> and and that's all a lead up to the fact that one of the ways in which he was a pioneer was of course that he hired and fire without regard to race gender ethnicity or any other individuality which has no bearing on whether one can do a job and i i would hope that whether someone hates the raiders or not didn't like out or not we can recognize that that is perhaps one of his greatest pioneering moment for statements. He was indeed and listen. I really appreciate those comments. I you know it means a lot coming from you.

And my name's andrew i went to stanford and i'm a bit of an odd duck myself and i've had a bigger life in my view since leaving the n._f._l.

You know not only your media but obviously what you've done. A picks threes so back at my friend. Well thank you and i will take this moment to say that. Although you and i tease one another about our college rivalries stories you haven't gone to that adorable little junior college and how <hes> but again all teasing aside which i'm doing right now <hes> <hes> i i said at the time that andrew luck retire of announced that he was leaving the n._f._l.'s didn't surprise me at all very very reasons you identified. He was the quenches interest central student athlete at asleep for the grant. I'm about to say at a magnificent magnificent university opted. It's just and and it's the truth i mean i t's but look game those game when it comes to school and he opted to stay at stanford to receive his agree to earn his degree at by the way the schools engineering this is not an easy degree nor is it an easy university. I have all the respect for the university that one could have because it does not grade norm for its athletic programs so he is worldly and like you. He is going to go on to have a much much. The bigger lights staying in the n._f._l. Would allow yeah and i talked about what you just said. I was there and speaking in two two thousand eleven. Which is the year. He passed up the n._f._l. Draft number one and there's this kid in the student union leaning over his computer eating some pizza or something with books thrown out a calculator strewn everywhere and i kind of pulled up next to them like wow that's andrew luck and you know i said this is a guy that doesn't have a smartphone. Sagay uncle is his agent. This is a guy who has a book club so i don't say this pejoratively. I just don't think he'll miss football and <hes> pejorative thing about that. I i agree with you entirely and by the way all of my very sincere compliments about stanford aside you wanna bet in ice cream cream on big game absolutely okay because then we would for wins or whoever loses still win that we get yeah. I used to bet a guy on our team when i was there was a backup quarterback. Name rogers bet there was on the next road trip. One of us had to wear the others <hes> other schools colors and the jersey so you didn't hear it for me but there was a road trip wherein rogers the deck down in stanford gear say. It's not so say it's vision. That's all right no knew he was he was a backup up and our starting quarterback on the plane every week wearing cutoff jeans and t-shirts so that's where we're back speaking of the raiders you mentioned you weren't watching and i get it. You know with hard knocks and the going on but you've seen being the drama not the not the drama playing out on h._b._o. But just the drama playing out every day and even before we get get to antonio brown. Just you know what as as someone who was involved organizations so much. What do you think when when you see the team in the news for reasons not involving you know the games and winning and losing or you know as well as anybody anybody who's been involved in the league teams don't like that. They label distractions now. I have my own view of the word distractions. I think that teams throw that around far too. You offense you know iraq wants buying home from the game and a very very very senior assistant coach. He wasn't the head coach but he was sort of the most senior of the assistance assistance had an absolute meltdown because quote we didn't have the right kind of candy bars on the plane and that was a distraction close close quote and you know if you're going to go on a full rant about not having like kind of candy bars and labeling that a distraction. I've got some serious concerns that your ability to coach but that's a pretty extreme example you know as well as i do coaches as a general rule do not like that which they labelled distractions so they don't like shows like hard knocks notwithstanding that i didn't see it. I certainly familiar with all the story lines you can't you know look at social media and not or the internet not not know about this story lines and you know i'm sure it was extra work at camp to have that all become public and teams wish that it wasn't <music> antonio brown's store their home. You know i may well be proven long on us s. <hes> certainly this summer would suggest i am <hes> but when the organization signed him. I thought you know what not just did. I think i said publicly this young man. Dan has absolutely every reason to prove to the world. Hey look. I wasn't the problem pittsburgh. Look at me here. I'm terrific immigrate teammate on not causing any problems or as my grandmother would have said as she off instead of me causing a ruckus. I think the issue at pittsburgh <unk>. I still think that maybe the case once the season starts <hes> but i certainly would have been proven wrong based on this summer yeah and listen. I don't think we can debate. There's no need to debate that he's high maintenance and there's also no need debate that he's gonna be a hard worker in practice and a good player on the field. I think the question becomes what were the raiders thinking in terms of managing him beyond on the field because i get you know we don't you don't have all players that fall in line in any organization and greater talent equals greater tolerance but i just wonder you know jon gruden and mike mayock. What did they expect. You know it's like what was their expectation on managing player and that's what i wonder if this is anywhere anywhere near a surprise to them at this point right and you you know you're <hes> you know. Obviously you know this as well as anyone and you articulated it beautifully as you always do which is they're not mutually exclusive. There can be off field issues news but one can still be a magnificent productive help as a player and you know you you said <hes> talent brings greater tolerance and the expression i always heard in the league was the bus waste perspective people. The bus doesn't wait for everybody and that was you know shorthand way the thing if the team buses are leaving for the airport for a road game and starting quarterback isn't on it that lessons gonna wait for him but the fifty the third man on the roster or someone who's not a big contributor. That bus ain't waiting so yes greater. Tolerance talent is greater tolerance you know as to how jose went into this or with what plan i don't know. I don't know if it was uber on the part of the organization. Which is we can do this. This is us we got this or if they had a concrete great plan or about kind of segues us to the field amy that first of all the off season there are a lot of stores sores this off season. You and i both talked about on on different media platforms one that just stands out to me and is doesn't involve antonio brown and another player at the same position equally as talented name odell beckham. I still am a bit a twitter that the steelers and the giants with huge cash and cap rems occasions to boot decided added.

"trask" Discussed on KNBR The Sports Leader
"Amy Trask this hour CBS sports network at appel analyst, former C E O of the raiders now also running operations for the big three was ice. Cuban the other night announcing drafted players that was an amazing luck. And somehow it worked I. It's like this showed up to the party like this is not gonna work. This works out works. Everybody came out of there with cool. Lamar Odom stories man, I don't know if there's a more sympathetic figure in sports in my lifetime. Then Lamar Odom. I mean, I don't even know how how familiar all of you are with some of the stuff that Lamar has been through. And I know the most recent thing at the bunny ranch, or whatever the heck that thing was out there. I know that was his own his own doing. But you know, I think gossip believe he's been in a car accident or a friend died. I think he had an infant pass from SIDS. I mean, there has just been item after item after item where you're like my gosh. And on the other side of that is you will not find someone in the NBA to say anything other than that's the nicest guy on the planet. Like, I mean, he just treats everyone from the head coach all the way down to the guys folding towels. He treats everyone with the utmost respect and his life. So the Lamar Odom thing is is pretty interesting. We'll get to choose your fate at eight here. In just a second. I also I want to mention something real quick that I found really fascinating. And it's sort of blew up into. I don't want to call it a storm. But it got a lot of interest today after the game. Pablo pitched today, which I'm not sure if the giants did because they were down by eight runs or if they were promoting the future. Let Pablo pitch giveaway that is coming up pretty soon. I mean, why would you give up when you're down twelve to four you already raised in eight run deficit one time in this in this series. I realized this when only had an ending or two left but anyway. Our buddy carried Crowley tweeted out a quote from Pablo and at first he he skipped ahead. Like, I think he left a little bit of context out on the quote. I don't know if it was an incorrect quote, but it got everybody going, and so he deleted it. And then added some context, but either way for my purposes, I feel like it leads to the same place. Here's the quote after pitching. And it was a scoreless inning where I think he got a fly ball. He hit about her. And then he got a double play and poof one-two-three. He's got the best ERA in the history of baseball. Pitch two innings giving up a run that's an IRA zero. It's the best of all time. I don't know if anybody's mastered. But if they have that's the best you can do. Here's the quote pitching is not easy. But it's easy for me. Because I have fun with it. I don't care about the situation. Now, I think when Carey I sent this out. The I don't care part was maybe a little bit too highlighted, and it got people going because it sounded like Pablo was saying the reason it's easy for me is because I don't care when I go out there and pitch now, you can read this two different ways. I don't care about the situation. That's maybe saying I don't care if it's tied or if we're down by eight or he could be saying almost like I don't care because of the situation which in other words, he's not pitching unless the games already been decided either way, I think this is kind of a fun important point. What's up baby? Oh, we have the cut beautiful. Okay. Here's Pablo earlier today. Vicious noisy will make it easy to go out. How far battle tradeable situation. Boom. You know, those guys were killing do everything they can, you know, stuff throw three or four foot astronaut is one of those things that a both going now that our our places.
