The door crisslow joining us on that story and others. Chris thanks for the time. Always good to have you on and give us the latest. How did how did how did this happen. So quickly with jeff long. It's great to be with you. Always i I really felt like we heard the news about less miles that this was just it was going to happen with jeff law and just did not senior way. He would survive. I think what happened in a lot of donors a kansas at the end of the day. The president a chance to learn. Douglas giradi heard from several influential donors that they just did not want to be the guy to hire the next head football coach and i think when you look back sort of having all the down with less weight ended there that The more that they thought about it. And i think jeff athletics look long enough to know he said in a statement. Today was going to be a huge distraction more hung around and and they wanna make a clean break. Bring somebody else in to hire the knicks head football coach. Oh by the way they got issues the basketball program. Well they certainly do. And i saw her. Danny manning announced that he was a contender for the ad job. But as we. I don't know whether tennessee is the template but you do need an athletic director to get in there. Fairly quickly don't you. Yeah you don't the what's your proverbial tail wagging the dog. So yeah you gotta bring somebody else somebody. And it's going to be the ad someone that's that's gonna be the football coaches boss. I tell you name to keep in mind. Travis goff and northwestern we went to kansas undergrad. There how highly respected and sort of in the world. And he's a guy that you're going to hear a lot of push for from donors from influential people there k you to bring in to come in higher this the next head football coach. I think a guy will be certainly equipped to deal with. What's going to come their way on the basketball front as well talking to crisslow chris. Let me just take a step back and go back in time time to lsu and unless miles and after this information dumped the other day and learning much more about what happened down there and what didn't happen. I'm curious as a reporter who has covered so many scandals in so many so many big stories in college football just your your takeaway from from the progression of that program with with joe alita and less miles to to really where it is now and where does it go to try to clean up a rather tattered reputation. Yeah you think back to two thousand eleven ten years ago paul. Lsu's on top of the world now. Granted they lost alabama national championship. But that was a great football team In in a team that was is elite as it gets and now here. We are ten years later and they won the championship last year. But a lot of things off the field. A lot of things going on you know you. You always felt like there at the end of his tenured. Lsu that there was a lot of people. They're out to get him. When i say out to get him that wanted to move on. I just felt like they could do better. But as you know you know the sec. As well as anybody yeses. He thinks they can do better. Except for maybe in tuscaloosa And i think the some of the political forces around lsu sorta helpless. We're on his side to leave. Certainly it and four games the sixteen season they got it in. You heard jimbo. Fisher's name all sorts of aim. Tom herman the end up with a lot of people felt like that was never going to work with all the old winter national championship last year and really a great job assembling people going out and getting staff around in but now here we are off the field with this complete invested in investigation. As some of the way things have been handled with sexual assault domestic incidents going back before was head coach So you're right. There's there's a lot on their at lsu Just like kansas. You've got issues with the basketball team as well So it's It's a mess right now. We'll see where it all
Arkansas Head Coach, Eric Musselman, Discusses His Team's Success This Year
"Know there's a game coming up tomorrow but if we could just get some final thoughts on north we're violating the twenty four hour rule or not. But how does it feel to. I mean your fans are buzzing right. Now they've been excited all year but that really brought it home the other night. I mean the thing that that we're probably the most proud of paul is just the fact you know we got thumped tuscaloosa and we got beat before that at lsu When we were in bad rooch pretty pretty bad too and and We were able to bounce back between those two games. We had a really physical practice with weighted vests. And and you know. I'm not sure we had enough legs To play the fast place style of play that that obama plays and coach you know gets his guys really get out and run and and You know looking back. We knew that that practice would you know would would maybe set us back slightly but we're trying to think long term. We had a great environment. I mean we. You know i understand. It's a pandemic but we had a really good student section. Our crowd was good. There's there's there's been a lot of excitement over the last few weeks with the way that the team is played and and it was a big game. Th you know anytime you get a top ten cheap You know and you can you can you number one. You don't get a lot of opportunities to play top ten teams then when you do and you're able to to get a win. It is a big deal for the fans at former players boosters and and for the student athletes to reward them for for a lot of hard work but we have incredible respect coach oats and his team and we know that you know they're one of the top teams in the entire country so it was a big win. But you're right you gotta turn the page. And that's part of your team is having maturity when you do win a big game two to turn the page and get ready for your next game. I mean you're now final two days of february and and certainly you're going to be going through this now. You're going to be going through this in the sec tournament and ultimately in the nc double a. tournament for for a program that has not won a lot of big games lately. How drill that into their their minds. That this was fantastic. But it doesn't mean anything tomorrow. I mean i think you know all you can do. Really paul's just continue to talk. educate You know. I told him today that you know. I'm a lot older than them. I'm getting getting towards being an old man. And and sometimes you gotta listen to your elders a little bit on on some of these things that you talk about that you know the game you know tomorrow when we play l. s. u. the prior game against lsu doesn't matter and our pr- prior win against alabama doesn't matter there's forty minutes you've got to go out you got to be focused and You know it's. I think that that just kind of how it is and and You know the good thing is having gone through it nevada. You know none of those guys that we had there had really been through it either But i think the big thing is just understanding that each day. You've got to continue to get better. I mean even you know with with with three games to go now. We're talking about how we can get better. We're talking about improving our practice habits. We we do a to onto pick and roll defensive drill today that i'm sure they weren't really excited about doing a two onto pick and roll drill that might be. You would consider a training camp drill but we want to get better and anybody that aspires to play beyond college. Basketball should should want to become a better pick and roll defensive player so hopefully you know you can get your guys excited to understand that you know you're not just doing it for the lead these last three games and then tournament situations you're doing it for the longevity of your career as
Alabama: The Newest Amazon Union Battleground
"Okay lena to understand. What is happening at this alabama warehouse. I'm guessing we should start by looking at some history. Yes and i spoke to just the person for that. Monday is gym specially and i'm a voca auditor for mercedes benz. Us international. We do audits on vehicles. After they're built jim as a very unique perspective on the union voted amazon because his mercedes plant. That was the epicenter of the last time. A super high profile labor battle played out in the state of alabama. And it makes sense that we'd be talking about auto plants because of course. A lot of foreign automakers have been opening factories in the south for decades. Now alex since the nineties yes they brought a lot of new jobs and jim you know he loves his job but he has a pretty glum view of why these foreign car companies came to the south in the first place the coming here because of the fact that there is not a fear of unions. You know they're saying we're just not educated. You know country bumpkins and whatnot. They don't know nothing about unions and don't care a lot of this stems from to work laws and all this other states which say that each worker can choose not to pay union dues still. The auto industry is historically pretty unionized. So the big auto union. The united auto workers decided to go after these new southern factories prompting intense anti union campaigns all labor experts. I talked to about unionization in alabama. Brought up this period of time. Like michael innes jimenez from the university of alabama the board that i'll never forget. Do you want tuscaloosa to be the next detroit. Let's throw race in there too. Obviously but seeing this post industrial city in a lot of pain and blaming the unions and then something incredible happened. workers at volkswagen in. Tennessee voted against the union and vw was the one company that actually wanted a union. It was the governor and republican lawmakers who fought against it from the air things just unraveled nissan workers in mississippi also rejected. The union at jim spits lease mercedes. Plant in alabama. Uaw didn't even petition for a vote. What it all comes down to is getting that vote and we haven't got that in twenty five years on three attempts so this sets the stage for where we are. Now this is. Why alina been asking you. How alabama became the first state to potentially have a unionized amazon warehouse. Right that's why so many people find it surprising. But i actually think that could be one of the three main reasons why this warehouse got to a union votes. So quickly we know amazon has stamped out union attempts and other places perhaps. The company also wasn't expecting such aggressive organizing in alabama compared to more traditionally Activist places. That's factor number. One are the other two to others are about the time and the place. Then let's start with a time. This is one of the things. I heard from the union. That's helping organize amazon workers in bessemer. The unions called the retail wholesale and department store union. And it's president. Stuart applebaum pointed out that this warehouse is only about a year old so it opened right as the pandemic started. I believe that the pandemic opened a lot of people is they understand now that they need a collective voice to stand up for themselves and to protect themselves. I also think that people had expectations when they came in that were not being realized. Amazon has been raking in profits during the pandemic which workers often bring up and also amazon went on a massive hiring spree and this by the way is often when workers ended up gaining some more power which is when they know that the employer needs more workers. The retail union folks say the best. My warehouse workers reached out to them quietly in the summer. They were describing grueling productivity quotas. They wanted to have more say in how they work. How they get disciplined. How they get fired. The union then mobilized support system of other folks from the region who are already unionized particularly workers from poultry plants. Okay and that brings us to your third factor alina. Which is the place right exactly. Professor michael innes jimenez pointed out something notable about alabama on that few people might realize if you follow the border and the coastline between california and maryland. alabama has the highest unionization rate for every state between california maryland. and then throw in tennessee. Also it's a pretty low rate. Only about eight percent of alabama workers are union members which is lower than the national average. But it is higher than all other southern states. And then you've got the specific location of the amazon warehouse which has bessemer. It's a working class. Suburb of birmingham. It's got early roots. In steel and mining and unionized labor. And another thing about bessemer is that it's a community that's predominantly black and the amazon unionization campaign is evoking social justice themes focusing a lot on respect in the workplace and of course this is all happening on the heels of the black lives matter protests. Yes exactly but the union also presented as part of its history. Its members marched with martin luther king junior in the sixties the union president talks about how in the south labor and civil rights battles have always been intertwined and so alina people think that all of these things at the time the place the context will end up making a difference and give alabama. The nation's first unionized amazon warehouse. the union. certainly hope so folks there told me more than half of the workers at the bessemer warehouse signed petitions for union shop. So they think this could be it of course amazon for its part has led a big anti-union campaign. They've got required meetings where workers were told. How union dues our waste of money. How great these jobs are already with all the benefits and the starting wage of fifteen dollars an hour and for context. The minimum wage in alabama is also the federal minimum wage which is seven dollars. Twenty five cents an hour which makes amazon starting wage of fifteen dollars an hour. More than double the alabama minimum. That is actually a big point four. Jim spits lee over the mercedes benz plant as he's watching this big amazon union. Vote play out it'll send a nami ripple but it's going to send one. It's going to let people know that. Hey even people fifteen dollars an hour. Seventeen dollars an hour can have union in their workplace. Bessemer warehouse workers will be voting by mail through the end of march. If this votes exceeds at an anti union place like amazon in alabama. This could turn a whole new page for both the
Alabama Could Be Home To Amazon's First Unionized Warehouse In The U.S.
"Amazons first unionized warehouse in America. That groundbreaking prospect is playing out in an unlikely place Alabama if workers from a facility near Birmingham vote to unionize next month. They would turn a new page not only for the company but also the region. MPR's Alina Cell yuk reports long before the warehouse was even built. Local officials called it a game changer. Amazon is coming to the funeral of government, the city of Bessemer, Alabama, Birmingham's working class suburb, a shadow of the steel and mining hub. It used to be. Amazon jobs paying over double the local minimum wage, promised a shot in the arm. Here's mayor kind of Cali talking about Amazon's arrival on Birmingham, CBS, 4200 and 30 Year. History of the city of Boston market is the largest single investment. But less than a year after the facility opened, it became a different kind of game changer. Amazons First American warehouse to get to a union election. Next month, 5800 workers of the best more warehouse will begin voting on whether to join the retail wholesale in department store union. Here's President Stuart Apple bound for things that is most important for them is to be treated with respect, he says. Best in more workers reached out to the union quietly in the summer, describing ruling productivity quotas wanting more say In how Amazon staff work how they get disciplined or fired a support system mobilized from unionized workers around the region, many from poultry plants Within months, the union says more than half of the warehouse workers signed cards to petition for unionization, leading the National Labor Relations Board to schedule an election. I believe that the pandemic opens a lot of people size, they understand now better than they ever did before. That they need a collective voice to stand up for themselves and to protect themselves. Jim spits. Lee has wanted that voice for years. He works down the interstate from the best summer warehouse at a Mercedes Benz plant, and he's watching this Amazon vote with interest because his factory was the epicenter of the last high profile labor battle in Alabama. You know, That's what it all comes down to is getting that vote and we haven't got that in 25 years. On three accounts. They came close in the 20 tens when the United Auto Workers Union tried to make inroads at foreign auto plans moving to the American South. They're coming here because of the fact that there is not fear of unions. You know, they're saying that we're just not educated, you know, country bumpkins and whatnot. They don't know nothing about unions and don't care. Nothing. Anti union sentiments are comin around the region, Alabama and many states around it have right to work laws, which mean every worker can choose not to pay union dues. Here's Michael in this human is a professor of the University of Alabama. The billboard that I'll never forget. Do you want Tuscaloosa to be the next Detroit? You know there's still race in there, too, obviously, But, you know, seeing this post industrial city in a lot of pain and blaming that on the union's spits lease plans never got a union election. At several auto plants in the region. Workers voted against joining the U A W even at folks Wagon and Tennessee, where the company welcomed unionization. Now specially wonders if an Amazon Union might shake things up. It'll it'll send not a tsunami ripple, but it it's gonna send one of all the Southern States Industry menace points out. Alabama actually has the highest percentage of unionized workers and best summer specifically has union history. Now It's a community that's predominantly black. The Amazon Union campaign is evoking social and racial justice themes, union president Applebaum says in the South labor and civil rights struggles have often been intertwined. We have a proud tradition of being involved in the civil rights movement, and we see the effort that Amazon at this warehouse is being a continuation of that. Amazon has argued that the workers pushing to unionize do not represent the majority of its staff's views. The company touts its pay and benefits and it's pushing to delay the election, appealing for the vote to take place in person instead of by mail, despite current virus concerns.

Bama head coach next seven, picks up his six title in Tuscaloosa, seventh all time and surpasses legendary Tide coach Paul Bear Bryant. I think coach Brian has, you know, sort of in a class of his own in terms of what he was able to accomplish what his record is, and I mean, he's the one that made Alabama and the tradition of Alabama a place where lots of players wanted to come say they've got some all time performances from his offense, including Heisman winning wide receiver Devante Smith, who said a championship game record with 12 catches Go along with 215 yards and three touchdowns, and he did it all in the first half, because you'd injure his hand early in the second half and be done for the night.

Georgia Bulldogs announce no make-up game for Vanderbilt Commodores cancellation
"Always great to Welcome back mike griffith to the program and mike. Let's start with the georgia bulldogs. After a spectacular saturday. They were hoping for one more game. It had already been postponed and now it has been canceled in what has been the reaction there and can anything be done about well. We're not gonna probably ever have anything like this in the future but really curious about your thoughts. Yeah a lot of fury. A lotta anger at georgie. No i it's twofold one georgia's playing great football. Jt daniels i mean before jt. They convert forty two percent of the third downs with jt. They convert sixty six right. Jt daniel six touchdown passes on on third down throws three incompletions. I mean the guys night and day. It's been amazing. Some people maybe. It's the schedule actually know if you look at the third down defense is the last. Three teams actually ranked better than the first six on average. What georgia's played. This guy has made all the difference in the world. It makes a difference in recruiting. Suddenly you have players. That are migrating to georgia that. Want to be a part of the georgia offense again so this transformation is happening in the shadows. Now that's georgia's fault. They didn't take care of business when they needed to jacksonville or in tuscaloosa and so they're sitting out this week so you don't get to see it but it's been happening on saturdays in athens and this georgia outgoing class. All these guys had an opportunity to be the winningest class in georgia football history. That's quite a legacy. But because vanderbilt canceled out all they can do is tie that mark now and so the a piece of their legacy is gone understand. Covid nineteen is not controllable but in the case of vanderbilt its players that are quitting the team and in the case of vanderbilt they cancelled on december fifth rally the troops for their senior day on december twelve and then canceled on georgia again. After the fact so georgia couldn't even get an alternative game that was acceptable for the senior day. So there's a lot of of anger and frustration and disappointment and all george can do now is hope that they get a good bowl draw. I think they need notre dame to upset clemson. I think if that happens. And if chalk holds and ohio state beat the bad northwestern and alabama roles florida. You could see georgia clemson in the orange bowl and i think that could excite the georgia fan but as things currently project. You're looking maybe. Cincinnati georgia in which case. Maybe some georgia guys opt out and say you know what it's cincinnati. It's it's not a real game.

The inside story of college football's wildest week ever
"College football conferences in the country have postponed their upcoming fall seasons. The Big 10 which includes powerhouses Ohio State, Michigan and Penn State, along with a pack 12 with the likes of USC, and Lay won't be hitting the gridiron at all in coming months. A veces Eric Mollo has more on the loss of football what it means for college towns and how this season could have a devastating impact on those towns. Thiss Week officials and five of the nation's biggest college football conference is known as the Power five made their decisions and for many of those major college football programs. There won't be any football come the fall Big 10 and Pac 12 have postponed their football season's and several other college sports were also postponed. Officials cited health concerns specifically, the long term effects Cove in 19 could have on the hearts of young athletes. Head coaches expressed their disappointment. Think our players This is what they live for. And when you play football to such a small window, so it's very disappointed, very emotional, and they hoped there might even be a chance to play in the spring. Others in the power five conferences took a different approach the A C C, which includes powerhouse programs like Clemson in Florida State, along with the S E C with Ellis you in Alabama. Indicated they're staying The course for now, and the Big 12 is going to give it a go. They released a revised schedule this week. It's a historic and unprecedented decision. The Big 10 has not Mr season since it was created in 18 96 playing through the Spanish flu pandemic and two world wars. The absence of college football this year also portends a major economic fallout. According to ESPN, canceling an entire college football season for power. Five schools could result in each school, seeing an average loss of $62 million. Football revenue alone and canceling an entire college football season for power. Five schools could result in billions of dollars of revenue lost those estimates Conservative. They exclude potential losses in corporate partnerships and media revenue for local communities such as Ann Arbor, Michigan, and Tuscaloosa, Alabama, whose names are synonymous with the universities and college football programs They host The economic impact could be devastating. There is really nothing like Columbus on a false Saturday, but it just goes to show you the severity of this pandemic. City Council member Emanuel Rimi is the chair of economic development in Columbus, Ohio, home to the Ohio State Buckeyes. He's concerned for local businesses in the region. Power Five programs like the Buckeyes could collectively lose $303 million in revenue on Game day spending, according to ESPN. That has ramifications for the local economy. It's devastating to those campus bars and restaurants and retailers that rely on game day. Revenue from some estimates that up to 50% of their annual revenues come from game days anywhere, you might go after a game wraps up to shop and hang out. Might not survive. I think it would be unrealistic not to think that there could be closures as a result of missing out on the season. Dante Lucas, he helps to run one of those local businesses. He's the director of operations at Champs Sports Grill, a bar and eatery in State College, Pennsylvania. Home of the Big 10 school. Penn State. We really based our year upon probably about 10 weekends. Seven of them are football weekends in the fall when the football weekend in this spring So taking that away from us really, really, really hurts us chance is one of those local bars trying to survive the pandemic in the postponement of the fall football season marks just another financial blow. We weren't surprised. But it doesn't mean we're any less devastated. I just think it's been exaggerated and ATT. Least in our case. Ronald Philip Ellie is state colleges. Mayor, he says Penn State football brings in huge revenue for the town believes with a limited fan base and student body this fall Covert 19 It's still the town's biggest problem was my assumption, and I think the assumption of many others They would play without fans. The fans aren't here. They're the ones who patronize the local businesses. The issue of whether or not you play in my mind doesn't really mean that there's going to be a different economic impact. Think about the impact on municipalities like State College. We've lost a tremendous amount of money as a result of the Pan Derek For example, our parking revenues of dharam practically a $1,000,000 Sure for State college.

The inside story of college football's wildest week ever
"College football conferences in the country have postponed their upcoming fall seasons. The Big 10 which includes powerhouses Ohio State, Michigan and Penn State. Along with a pack 12 with the likes of USC and won't be hitting the gridiron at all in coming months. Agencies Eric Mollo has more on the loss of football what it means for college towns. And how this season could have a devastating impact on those towns. Thiss Week officials and five of the nation's biggest college football conference is known as the Power five made their decisions and for many of those major college football programs. There won't be any football come the fall Big 10 and Pac 12 have postponed their football season's and several other college sports were also postponed. Officials cited health concerns specifically, the long term effects Cove in 19 could have on the hearts of young athletes. Head coaches expressed their disappointment. Think our players This is what they live for. And when you play football to such a small window, so it's very disappointed, very emotional, and they hoped there might even be a chance to play in the spring. Others in the power five conferences took a different approach the A C C, which includes powerhouse programs like Clemson in Florida State, along with the S E C with Ellis you in Alabama. Indicated they're staying The course for now, and the Big 12 is going to give it a go. They released the revised schedule this week. It's a historic and unprecedented decision. The Big 10 has not Mr season since it was created in 18 96 playing through the Spanish flu pandemic and two world wars. The absence of college football this year also portends a major economic fallout. According to ESPN, canceling an entire college football season for power. Five schools could result in each school, seeing an average loss of $62 million. Football revenue alone and canceling an entire college football season for power. Five schools could result in billions of dollars of revenue lost those estimates Conservative. They exclude potential losses in corporate partnerships and media revenue for local communities such as Ann Arbor, Michigan, and Tuscaloosa, Alabama, whose names are synonymous with the universities and college football programs They host The economic impact could be devastating. There is really nothing like Columbus ofall Saturday, but it just goes to show you the severity of this pandemic. City Council member Emanuel Rimi is the chair of economic development in Columbus, Ohio, home to the Ohio State Buckeyes. He's concerned for local businesses in the region. Power Five programs like the Buckeyes could collectively lose $303 million in revenue on Game day spending, according to ESPN. And that has ramifications for the local economy. It's devastating to those campus bars and restaurants and retailers that rely on game day. Revenue from some estimate that up to 50% of their annual revenues come from game days anywhere, you might go after a game wraps up to shop and hang out. Might not survive. I think it would be unrealistic not to think that there could be closures as a result of missing out on the season. Dante Lucas, he helps to run one of those local businesses. He's the director of operations at Champs Sports Grill, a bar and eatery and State College, Pennsylvania. Home of the Big 10 school. Penn State. We really base Ah, year upon probably about 10 weekends. Seven of them are football weekends in the fall. Everyone's a football weekend in spring. So taking that away from us really, really, really hurts us chance is one of those local bars trying to survive the pandemic and the postponement of the fall football season marks just another financial blow. We weren't surprised. But it doesn't mean we're any less devastated. I just think it's been exaggerated and ATT. Least in our case. Ronald Philip Ellie is state colleges mayor, He says Penn State football brings in huge revenue for the town but believes with a limited fan base and student body this fall Covert 19 It's still the town's biggest problem was my assumption, and I think I'm sure, many others. They would play without fans. The fans aren't here. They're the ones who patronize the local businesses. The issue of whether or not you play in my mind doesn't really mean that there's going to be a different economic impact. Think about the impact on municipalities like State College. We've lost a tremendous amount of money as a result of the Pan Derek For example, our parking revenues of Dharam practically a $1,000,000 Sure, State college. They're hoping a Corona virus relief bill can help them get through this fall in that there's money for municipalities like us. Help us cover the costs of the pandemic. We need that money for these local towns of fall without college football is unprecedented and economically devastating, but their top priority is like that of every other town in America. Getting the fire is under control. We can hope for is people follow health guidelines. And let's get this thing over with him back to reality and some sort of normalcy and 2021. Not every business is likely to survive the cancellation of the fall season. But these college sports town's air hoping and banding together to fight the Corona virus that many will be ableto weather the storm and survive until football comes back within six months to a year's time and stayed will bounce back Stay.

Ford employees ask the company to stop making police cars
"Motor Company is out with a Ah, process that they're going through about 100 employees have gone public with their request to the automaker to stop selling police vehicles because Police are brutal and they're racist. Ford executives are weighing the request and have not yet made an announcement. But there's a lot of pressure on social media for Ford to tell police departments they will no longer sell. The vehicles to them. So what is Toyota get vehicles them selling, you know, picking up the slack market share because right now serious, San Diego has Toyota four runners the SUVs. So I mean, thie employees air urging the cut that their boss the company do not make and sell. Ah police units. Ah, police cruisers to city so that Some other. There's still gonna be police cars. Why would you not want to get your fair share of that market place? If your employees of Ford apparently, these people don't want their jobs, I mean, I would put them on the top of the list of fire. All right, somebody safe and your name to the layoff list If we lose the contract, you know, with the Tuscaloosa, Alabama Police Department that you're the 1st 1 to relinquish your well, why don't you just quit forward then? I mean, why? Why? Why does four have to stop making the product? That's what they're in the business of doing is making automobiles. Yeah. Bia Social Justice warrior full time. You don't need to work out. Ford, you know, support is not consistent with your values. So be a social justice warrior. Put your money where your mouth is and quit your job, mate. This This is absurd. I've decided. I don't like it. Don't don't want to give Ah police Cruiser to Ah! Ah, car to the police. But does that mean that you also are going to use 901? I'd love to get the name of the 100 people and block their ability from their cell phone to dial 911 is apparently where they don't need no police and there's their community. They don't need cars. They don't need police. So no. 911 for you. I mean, this is where you start pointing out the Um, the bankruptcy of some of these folks in terms of what they're saying, their advocate and and the absolute absolute juvenile nature of these causes. I mean, this is child's play, right? I mean, this's not thoughtful. This isn't academic. This isn't deep. This isn't even You know, argumentative. I mean, this is this is just this is foolishness. This is this is child's play. The head of Ford has sent a letter to employees and it it reads in part, quote as we meet weekly in our global team huddles. Invariably there are questions that don't get answered, given the short time we have together. Or simply would be better addressed off line. On it goes on to talk about. Ah Ah, you know the fact that quote Bill Ford, and I believe deeply that there is no room for systemic repression and racism that have been exhibited by law enforcement encounters gone wrong. Um Your your product had nothing to do with it. Why are you taking ownership of part of the problem? You made the car. You didn't make the police officer or even the police officer's equipment or the rule book and I go back to having a CEO of a company. Come out with a statement like that. That that somehow they've made the judgment that racism was driving. Ah, ah, the inappropriate use of force. Again. I don't think we can say that. I think it's nice to say Well, if the cop is white, and the suspect was black, the victim was black. So therefore it must be racism. That's a pretty lousy assumption to be making. And to have a CEO of one of our largest companies come out and basically validate that and then go on in a what is a nine paragraph letter explaining how they're wrestling with this decision about literally saying we're not gonna sell cars to a pretty significant portion. You know, we had at least I think 600 800 cars. Andi. I know that these are not cheap cars. So let's say that there because they're there outfitted with a bunch of special equipment and stuff. So let's say that these cars are 50 grand each for the city of San Diego. Alone. That's a $40 million hit for Ford. For just a cycle of vehicles $40 million. That's just for San Diego Police department, then multiply that by all the police departments across the country. Your shareholder and Ford. Relatively ticked. Out on the opposite end of the spectrum. I'm not a shareholder in Ford. I'm relatively ticked. I'm just relatively tick that the company is taking this kind of stance. Whether they're toward with their emotions. It's the car. It isn't the attitude of the law enforcement official. It isn't It isn't anybody. It's it's the inanimate object, but yet they feel like that. Somehow they're contributing to systemic racism by manufacturing, a police unit. Now on the other end of the spectrum. A CEO of a food company paid a small compliment to President Trump. A Rose Garden ceremony yesterday. And now he is facing calls for resignation, and even members of Congress have urged people to boycott the food manufacturer.

We'll be a very big game this Sunday night cowboys Vikings. If I'm telling you right now one of those teams but not both is GonNa make the playoffs. which is how it's easy for me? It's the cowboys I think you go to the most important position. It's quarterback and I think Dak Prescott is a tier above kirk cousins. And also. I do think that the vikings defense is fantastic especially compared to the The cowboys defense. However the cowboys had the lead in their division and the easiest way to get to the playoffs is to win your division in order for the Vikings to get to the playoffs? It's going to be tough for them. The Kent Spring Bay. They're going to have to win a wildcard spot in a very very heavy and strong. NFC so I think the cowboys are more likely to get to the playoffs and probably even more likely to succeed. Succeed in the playoffs in the Vikings Huge game and then the last one if we were voting on. NFL MVP right this minute. who gets your vote? I'll it's easy. It's Lamar Jackson I think he is the MVP so far this season if you look at what they're they may not be putting up the same amount of points and some of these great all-time offenses but statistically they are as efficient as the uh-huh seven Patriots last year's chiefs the Super Bowl. The team found Winston. That's how efficient. Their offense is because they score on more than fifty percent of their drives. You don't do do that unless you're special. They don't move the ball fast. They run the ball so it's not going to be a lot of points but they're that good and they are making a defense. That is not all that good look a lot better than they are so I think Lamar Jackson deserve serve all the credit in the world for lifting team to the point that they are because they built around him in a special way. I don't mean to be looking over your shoulder but I am because a large fellow standing behind you with a quizzical. Look on his face. I see what come on over here. What what part of that He?

"Get up in a huge one Saturday in Tuscaloosa with Lsu and Alabama Nick Sabin to tango. Oh by lower miked up at practice yesterday. So how are we doing today thirteen so you know one one of the prerequisites you being able to play this game and you gotta be able to outrun which you you. You Ain't close it. His Mobility will be the big question uh-huh and every day that's improved dramatically. So we'll see where it takes. I can tell you one little one little I'm so explosive mm-hmm and beat you. Don't get it what's clothes on a clothes on clothes on. This is what competitor love love to do having the opportunity to see if you can get your team to play their best. Go practice it and see if you can get it right and the game enough off times to have success. I mean it's like plan in play off your competitor. You love it. I the best time this week. Observing the excitement of two of my absolute favorite People Ryan Clark and Marcus Spears is there a model. LSU prepares for this game of the century this weekend gained and so it breaks my heart to have to tell them the following but history says you have almost no chance at Alabama have been the two scariest areas two words and the football language for over a decade nick. Sabin team loses in that building so infrequently that you can actually remember all of the games there was the Johnny Manziel game came the Cam. Newton comeback game the nine six game and that one time that old miss beat him and that is it four defeats in eleven years. Alabama is seventy eight four at home since two thousand eight and it gets worse right now. They have the longest ever home win streak in the SEC. They've won thirty one straight games by an average of thirty two points. There is not one player currently on the Alabama roster that has ever lost at Bryant Denny Stadium and even that should come as no surprise because the last last time Alabama was an underdog at home was November of two thousand seven it was against. LSU whose quarterback Matt. Flynn had been recruited to that school. I hi you guessed it Nick Sabin so are seen Swag Jarvis Odell boettger Billy Cannon Bert Jones. I'm not here to say you can't and to do this but what I will say is no matter. How good your team and your quarterback are? We're GONNA have to see you climb college. Football's tallest mountain. Before we will actually believe we've laid it can be done. That's what I think. Let me bring into the conversation. Now I'm GonNa ask you for protection because when our C.. Gets you next week when Swag ooh get get here next week after Alabama beats them. They're going to be coming for me. What do you think your head coach on the show yesterday? Yeah me and all coach the head coach for Lsu said was we come in green if you're ever in trouble and somebody picks up the phone and they say we come in not come in with bad intentions I think Lsu wins this ball game. But I'm so excited because it's going to be good on good. Take a look at the tape. And I'll show you.

"Feelings get hurt. I don't WanNa play with a guy like that. That will flag that please. Because you don't have to listen to. It is my point and we talk about. We had auto on here who I think has master's in sports psychology talking. About how positive self talk matters. That means negative self-talk Talk Matsui. You've been in locker rooms where I'm sure that coach talking about visualize yourself doing successfully think of yourself succeeding. It can't be good to have all the ambient noise saying that is your trash. This team's not going anywhere because you don't want your teammates here and you don't want that that that seems sand and that's a tough thing to do with so allow me to weigh in right in the middle of both you guys. You're right right and you're right but the fact that matters Mitchell trubisky can very quietly goto team turn on the TV. We don't talk about this in public Intel. Everybody that I am sensitive to all the talk is going on around me. Yeah nobody wants to hear negative talk. That's the way it is. Nobody likes the criticism. But don't don't give a public that is already questioning criticizing more fodder to question you about greeting greening. Jeopardy is so exactly. You're right let let let me break this down to. We're talking about the monsters of the midway right. Okay well I think a Muslim. I'm thinking like buck. His Mike Single Teri hatcher a quarterback talk about. Oh the people making fun of me. All they're talking about. What are we talking about you? I understand what you're saying. I think Sheffi has it exactly right. Because here's the bottom line. Everyone deals with criticism differently. All of us are on one level or another in the public eye and we have been criticized at different times different things and everyone handles that a little bit differently. Some people use it as motivation. Use It as fuel. They love looking for people to criticize them others. It does defeat them a little bit but the last last thing in the world. You should do if you were Mitchell. Trubisky and you're the quarterback of the Chicago Bears Shefty. Has It exactly right. You do not go out and say publicly right now. I'm turning off all the TV's because I can't I cannot listen to Damien woody criticizing me anymore because he doesn't know what I'm going through running on the bottom line of. Espn Mitchell trubisky wants the TV's often muted criticism headlines to sceptres point. When I got the email with this quote in it I got upset because I was like damn somebody the an organization leaked this boy? You said that yourself should know better. I agree that is an example of bad judgment but I think it's okay to be like I no myself I know that this resonates with me in a bad way. Get it out. I think I report says exactly right Phil my man. I can't believe somebody Rapid Mallika. Oh you write it himself out the next time he throws him to triple coverage you say to yourself you know. I knew he had questionable judgment and obviously getting up in front of the world explaining. That was a good indicator of it. All right let's run the hurry.

Let's start breaking it down Wisconsin at the Ohio State University what do you got in that one Ohio State winning the game I had the Jack Cone of Wisconsin has a chance of winning the game he's got to step up because obviously Ohio state can load up the box frankly they don't have to load the box against Taylor but they will and then he's GonNa play well but Jack Cohn has to get the ball out to the receivers in particular CPAS his Goto guys come back he's played well that is the matchup for Ohio state an for Wisconsin because it's going to be a picture of battle pick your choice of eight minutes doc seven in a box and we're gonNA play Action Jack over the top or nine here's my thing. JV The worst thing that ever happened to Ohio state Wisconsin losing to Illinois last week their toughest week of practice of their lives would have been this upcoming week for the Ohio State Game I'm really interested to see Wisconsin and have you fixed your mistakes again the Allow Twenty nine points Illinois they had only given up twenty nine twenty four points all season Ohio state is going to try to Loyd with Johnson former abilities Wisconsin when they win the turnover battle under their head coach the twenty eight and two when they lose it not so good so for me it's just a matter up Wisconsin fixed everything that went wrong last week so you have Ohio State or Wisconsin winning have Ohio state winning I just think that everybody thinks it'll be a blowout I think right now it's a fourteen point game it's GonNa be a lot closer than that and Wisconsin they're gonNA show now look I agree it won't be a blood Agra looking forward to that one of course remember Ohio State has won six straight in that matchup is going to be a good one over on ABC we continue to move forward. I mean listen Saturday night over on ABC or we're looking forward to this yes I would say so right we're looking at Michigan and Notre Dame that game guys going to be interesting to say the least you look at the Notre chance to make the College Football Playoff Irish basically essentially eliminated from championship competition if they lose that game so odd show you guys know game is bigger for Notre Dame right and both of you are picking Notre Dame over Michigan but if Jim Harbaugh wins this game how much this change the calculus of we think of Harbaugh as a big time coach Yo honestly unfortunately for Harbaugh it doesn't change at all I mean right now he's sitting at one in ten if not mistaken when he's the underdog again he's playing a team in Notre Dame they have everything to play for Michigan they really don't have anything to play for you're not GonNa Win big ten you're not going to college football playoffs so now you're playing for pride you're playing for the name on the back of the Jersey and for the logo on the Front of the Jersey does way to win this game all we're going to say his finally it's not like we're going to sit there and tip barn cat to the man as simple as that Oh man I'll tell them with you right man you are so right I'll add this for the drastic losses that he's had one in ten against top opponents etc he has to take a FRANKEN approach at Penn State back in two thousand ten James Franklin was on his way out he lost two games and actually got obliterated by Michigan and then suddenly on the nine game win streak and went into the Rose Bowl they lost a close when the rose bowl and that's when it turned for Penn State and James Franklin football because of the consistent wins against good opponents he beat Ohio state that's hardball it's going to have to do consistent winds one win is not enough I can't believe this coming out of my mouth of all people but I'm gonNA in Jim Harbaugh right Paul Finebaum earlier this week said Oh we can go into the yellow pages and pick a better coach come on listen it's not as if he's a horrible coach he's a good coach he's just not eight right now but get guys back up against the wall this is what I want to see what Jim Harbaugh villa we solve this right when Gus Malzahn had his back up against the wall and twenty seven and everybody's talking about Oh he's going to be out at Auburn what did they do they ended up winning the West that's how big this game is for horrible no this is the start for Bernie you're talking about what the Gus Malzahn accomplish over the course of that season this is just one game and frankly it doesn't even matter for the big ten it's it's Notre Dame Liam account but I understand where you're going like if he's going to start somewhere notre dame will be a great time to start and then continue on that success and JV all add to that point harbaugh's name and his reputation along with the reputation of Michigan vats their biggest adversary harbaugh is a good coach the problem is you're gonNA place Michigan Michigan is a great program at least they're perceived to be a great program so I'm with you burn the I think is a very good coach but when you're Michigan and Clemson Oklahoma Texas Notre Dame Penn state USC etc.. Good just isn't good enough and the last thing I'll leave you with is good is the enemy of great time for Harbaugh to be great and stop being own enemy all right we're looking forward to that especially when harbaugh makes around well basically makes in Acho tight money all right we got Saturday night aw seven thirty right over ABC Notre Dame there in the big house nineteenth ranked Michigan we got a lot more in common football live including to talk about the gentleman not playing this week high ankle sprain on that right foot it's going to mark the first time the Nick Saban era strays since two thousand seven that Alabama will have relative to my rehab it was back on the field in twelve days before the last one this one doesn't seem to be quite a serious ah the last one and it's not as planned foot to throw so hopefully in a couple of weeks we'll be able to have him back on the field now you know how capable they'll be and how close to honor percent he can get just kinda remains to be seen now of course it remains to be seen if he is hundred percent I'm going to say it for Nick Sabin Right now is not going to be one hundred percent for the game against Ellis shoe so I mean will we start here as far as being one hundred percent going forward is this how big of a concern is it for the time I think it's a huge concern but at least saving sounds if he's not gonNA throw to out there to the walls remember last year I got into it with coach d'amore onset because I'm like to what is not healthy do not rule him out there and I don't care if he's healthy enough to play he's not healthy enough to successfully play or maintain a level of health wild playing so don't throw him out there again you saw time after time it was hurt maybe it's just me having played in college having played professionally playing through injuries into watching to Olympic off the field it hurt me just to see let them get healthy that's my two cents don't rush I agree so don't rush it I'm not as concerned as you are though I'm not looking ahead towards any games besides this to Arkansas game because when you look at two throws he makes a ton of throws downfield gets a lot of time but he also makes a lot so I'm looking at Mack Jones he's GonNa step in he just has to make those easy throws man just be accurate you don't have to do anything besides the accurate get the ball out quickly right in in doing run run run run run and they blow by anybody and everybody they faced and obviously the other thing too forecast burns you talked about that Lsu game if I'm Alabama if two was not likes eighty percent I might sit him anyway because now you have a scapegoat the thing about why rolled out there and then you lose the whole scapegoat which you can keep in your back pocket that's just one more piece to the puzzle let me ask you this and even though Nick Sabin doesn't want US guys to spend a Ford Against Arkansas Listen Arkansas lost fifteen straight they're out to offensive Lineman Alabama's GonNa win this game but right now if two dozen play it's LSU's to lose in the SEC is that fair to say JV it is fairly LSU It's LSU'S SEC is L. issues to lose yes that is very fair to say because the offense is very good matter of fact the offense is so good there think a national championship appearance is now Lsu's for the taking I'm not sitting here saying they're going to win it but I think they'll run through not only Alabama not only the West obviously I think they'll win. entire SEC it fell us time meaning finally they've gotten the pieces together they've always had the players now they have the system between borough between offensive analysts Brady I think LSU roles with ease and the last thing is once you overcome the mental obstacle of beating Alabama which is something else the Lsu Tigers and why there might be some cigars actually on the field at Tiger Stadium and Jack Rabbits they're good we'll tell you why also yes glades trending yet once again on twitter find out why he should be on the next episode of Shark Tank that next on college football live Van's Ville no one's been part of more first days of work than car heart and in the same way rookies have to earning respect car heart never stops earning the respect of hardworking people like you from building rugged dear that's tougher than any other I our worst day of work to reengineering the classics to out work the presented by John Pamper.

So it's every Saturdays special day at Bryant Denny stadium. I think tomorrow, obviously with the history in the rivalry. And what it means to our state. It's certainly special to be out there and be a part of it is, and we certainly look forward to it in its regardless of the matchup this game as we both know.

He's he's completely focused on what the task is at hand tomorrow and part of an administration you have to kind of plan for different scenarios and be prepared.

"My Paul finebaum show podcast Trevor manage to sort of get his take on everything that's going on his thirteenth week of. The college football season. Trevor thanks for joining us, my friend, great to be with you. Tony. Thank you. Thanks. Let's start here where we are in Tuscaloosa. I'm asking everybody this question. So I'll I'll put it to you. Is there a path? Is there any path you can see for Auburn to try to find a way to win this game? You see any scenario where they can come out of here with the wind tomorrow. Yes. If an actual spaceship comes down for them, and then ducks the entire Alabama team before kick-off because really if they abducted at the end of the first quarter, I still think Alabama wolves quarter points to have won that game. But no, I think poor Auburn these Alabama they want they have every reason like they always do to annihilate Auburn, but add to it. Now, the fact that Auburn beat them last year kind of beat them up last year as well. I think if they can score one hundred points, I think they will if they can beat Auburn so badly that they force Auburn to drop football as an intercollegiate sport. I think they will. I don't think Auburn has what it takes to be able to put much of a speed bump in front of their D line is very very good. But I think that the bypass they're run around all game on Trevor let me ask you about to talk of low. I mean, you've been watching this game a long time lot of quarter. You've seen a lot of quarterbacks. What is unique about this guy? Decisiveness tony. We've seen a lot of guys that can throw the ball accurately, and he throws it accurately. Matter of fact, he throws sexually accurately. But what impresses me is that as a first year starting quarterback? He doesn't stand in the pocket and look around and try to find somebody who's opened and then and then if he doesn't recognize what he sees he waits for a while to see if it becomes more. None of he'll drop back and pick something, and it whatever it is. And that's one of the reasons that defense is can't stop it. Because he doesn't give them the chance to rally around him to get around him as a pass rush to see what the route combination isn't have safeties jumped routes. He gets the ball out quickly. And if he wants to run he.

Right now, let's make sure we continue to move forward, but yes, winning makes us all smarter and better looking and Paul, you know, like yourself, I need all the help. I absolutely you've been record places where changed was was change occurred, and I, it's always difficult. And and having been here before you are not at the bidding, the state these days are different than I know everybody talks about the way it was with coach Bryan, but there were some pretty, it's pretty challenging years. Well, we have. We have great history here is a history is any program in the country university in in the country. We're also living under historical times right now, and and we, we just like we talked about earlier. We can't take that for. Ranted and just think we'll keep rolling the ball out. We'll be just fine with it. We have to continue to look and say, what is that future ahead? And that's what we've been working on with crimson standard. Greg Byrne.

Another day in paradise. Paul have a great time, love all the folks that I get a chance to work with here at the university. We have terrific assistant coaching staff and support staff, and I'll play his work awfully hard on the court and in the classroom. So it's just an unbelievable place to have an opportunity to serve student athletes. You had come close, but at the end of last year, it all to started to come together the the run in in Saint Louis, the win in the first round of the turnament special time it was in. That's what we talked about from day one. We were pointing towards year three in beyond. I knew it was gonna take a year or to change the culture. But year three started the yield, some results that. That we're very excited about and we have a great strategic plan in terms of recruiting, we increased our home attendants. It was loud rowdy and proud in Coleman. Coliseum. The fans gave us tremendous support and we, we're having an opportunity now to simpler the NBA like island Sexton were graduating. I was to net deletes. So we have a lot of positives about Al program right now. One thing about basketball, it takes a hiatus. Well, I don't even know if it does, but it seems like it does maybe for a week or two, but not anymore because you've got practice starting. You've got recruits on campus. You get recruits to come in here. Obviously, they know what your basketball program like, what does it mean to have them here for football weekend? It's unbelievable. People talked about, why did I decide to take a job at a football school said his Alabama. Why not? You know, we have, you know, arguably to are the greatest football coach. In history of college football, your Nick Sabin, and we have a tremendous amount of resources, and the administration has really gotten behind making basketball relevant and help us a thin to a championship level, and they've made commitments across the board. So it is great to be able to showcase Alabama on a football weekend to so many recruits in their families, and it's just a wonderful place to to have a great time this weekend. I mean, it's not like basketball players aren't interested in other things they get you don't tell them what Alabama football's all about in the great thing about it is college life. Yeah, sure. We stress academics in character in a personal responsibility in doing what's right in the community and playing at a maximum level on the cord in fighting through adversity and having great chemistry and moving the ball. But you know, two kids, you know, they gotta have some fun and just we just encourage them to do it in a right way as important as that is Colin Sexton.

"Always wanted a great stops along the SEC tour. Tuscaloosa Alabama. This weekend, Texas AM comes in here is not the only game, but there is a lot of intrigue about this game, especially since it's the fourth game of the year. What does that mean? It means that some people are going to be watching to see what happens to Jalen hurts next week, Nick Sabin trying to clear some of those rumors up yesterday by saying. Both will continue to play look at two numbers for those of you watching on TV for those of you on radio. We're talking about comparisons to Russell Wilson and Baker Mayfield. Yes, I realize it's only three games into the season, but these are still pretty remarkable numbers. It's still even Ella bama's prohibited favorite a big game here in Tuscaloosa, Alabama. I think you can make a lot out of the fact that JIMBO dick, but really it's bigger than that yourself very fundamentally play with only toughness discipline with pride. I think they're obviously one of the best teams you know in our conference. So this is going to be a critical game for all the players on both teams. You're not going to give you anything you wanna have to execute make to be. This is by far the best defensive team. We played to this point, one hits overcome those things. His plate. Next plane always makes it difficult to play defense against team, like man out. Earn play on the road and hostile environment be the first time for that. We're not where we need to be yet, but we're making progress the end the night still one game. That's why we have to. So I think by now you've heard the narrative about Sabin and his former assistance. It's gone. Nick savings way will just be the weekend that ends. Odds makers don't think so. Anyway, we have time to include your phone calls. We'll spur we'll interspersed him in dispersed throughout the day eight, five, five, two, four to seven to eight five.

Looks pretty toasty there and Tuscaloosa. Yeah, and I'm sure. I'm sure we'll be more all cold you weeks ago, raising concern. Some concern when we were going up against Louisville ole miss with their their talented receivers and stuff, and I'm kind of old school, you know, respect each and every opponent I feel like we have not been tested yet, and I think ADM's desensitized front, especially their defensive line is well underrated. And you know this hope that we can rise to the Asian wanted to get your thoughts on that. Listen, I, I don't think you can look past AM even though I think a lot of people are in. You can't look past them because they have accomplished something already. This year they played the number two team in the country at the time to a standoff at home. A lot of people said that was just an emotional night. That's what happens in Kyle field, but what they're what they're capable of doing. And I'm sure that concerns Nick Sabin. Consumes me as well. 'cause that tell you what am should've won that game? They throw a lot of opportunities away, but it doesn't surprise me. I mean, the JIMBO Fisher is the gun is the obviously you see the footprints of what he's doing. You can see it in recruiting their number one again and recruiting this week, but you know, we haven't been tested and you know, I'm not your typical Bama fan, some of these families and to call in, you know, the kind of investment to us. I'm on everybody can know the most famous and very humble. You know, we respect our Ponant in the fans need to get in this game, Tamar.
