We certainly know we need to up our game that that kind of leads me to another question is really excited to ask. You said you weren't there. You're one year there now. And i feel safe asking this question because ucla has been so successful but particularly for other universities trying to build programs like what do you think the biggest mistake you made was like. What's the thing looking back. They wish could say. I wish we'd done that differently. And that you know. By implication you could advise other schools that are building programs to say. Jeez don't do this or avoid this pitfall learn a lot What am i most. Common answers Is that you should engage your faculty earlier I mentioned the research. Mission mentioned the teaching faculty earth the heart of that. They are the ones with phd degrees. They're very famous in their fields. They are all incredibly smart but there are also really concerned with the reputation of the university. And they're all really committed to making uci the best it can be and if they see a new east program. They're like kids are playing video games. What have what does he come to now. We are supporting us. So our biggest critics have been Faculty on campus and it's not to say that the vast majority aren't very supportive like we have wonderful faculty teaching researching all around games all the way across the university every single unit every single division. But i don't think we did enough to engage them and allow them to be a part of the design process in market in that communication process. Steps that We like the broader group of faculty felt that they their concerns would be reflected in in Involved in so.

We have a little faculty advisory committee now..
Democratizing Access to Hospital-Grade Disinfection with Eli Harris, President of R-Zero
"Talk to us a little bit about our zero. What is it that you guys are doing. how are you adding value to the healthcare ecosystem. Yes so it was almost sixteen months ago. Now with the academic. I started a a ticket hold. I got in touch with the two mentors in mind. Both entrepreneurs who i've known for about a decade and the three of us started talking about how there's certain events throughout history that just create everlasting societal and infrastructural changes in a dork way. We kinda like in what was happening of the pandemic to nine eleven. How after nine eleven. We have the department of homeland security. You have. tsa fourteen thousand agents. You still can't take a water bottle of where shoes through the airport. You go to a ballgame. You walk through a metal detector. These are all new standards that were created and adopted post nine eleven in some of these psychological star tissue after that event accelerated decrease adoption of those standards. But we never arrest fundamentally the world took on a new posture around security in all shared spaces at our thesis. Fear was at this event of the pandemic was going to broaden that word security to biosecurity to biosafety and in the standards that all organizations are gonna fold as they regard a human health in the safety of their staff their patrons of their communities at large so what we did. Kind of unpacking the disinfection industry. And we've learned quickly that this is a massive industry. Hundreds of billions of dollars market cap governed by these goliath players. Ecolab clorox se. johnson diversey. All of these companies are extremely old. Some over a hundred years old and more or less all pushing commodity chemicals and our response to the pandemic was to go around and host buildings down the chemicals. And that's what we did in. This industry has not evolved with the technology that is becoming become commonplace in almost every other industry. It's extremely antiquated in what we're doing with chemicals. I mean there's there's a lot of limitations there one is. They're not always that effective. There's a lot of human error and how they're applied there's a massive labor cost a massive op ex chemical costs at. It's horrible for the environment. So we got in touch with. Dr richard wade and dr wade actually ran cal osha for fifteen years. He taught at harvard oxford. Uc irvine. We like to call him. The michael jordan's disinfection. He's he's forgotten more about this industry than most of us will ever learn. And he's quite special but he let us on a study to really understand. What are the best tools that exist in infection prevention today. And why have we not democratized access to those
UC Irvine Scientists Working on COVID-19 Vaccine That Would Attack All Strains
"The Corona virus and help with the common cold. You see, I professor Bashir boat, Ben Mohamed says Corona virus outbreaks have been happening for decades and will happen again. Next outbreak would likely come from those coronaviruses that are going to emerge from the bats. And cause the next outbreak in 2025, 2028, or 2030. He says the vaccine would then be shipped wherever the new Corona virus strain popped up, essentially stopping the next global pandemic Before it spreads you, CI has received $3.7 million in federal grant money that will help a clinical trials get going.

UC Irvine Scientists Working on COVID-19 Vaccine That Would Attack All Strains
"You see Irvine School of Medicine is working to develop a new vaccine that will defeat all strains of the Corona virus, including those that haven't arrived in the U. S.

"Heard of it, But I don't exactly what it is. Okay. Great. I do not know what that is. No. Um, no, no. All right. I'm not exactly sure. Just like some kind of fungus days. Restriction E. Don't know. What is it? All right, not a popular particle know almost nobody on campus had any idea what the neutrino was? One person thought it was some sort of fungus that might grow on your toes. When she could still be. I mean, well, I mean, we don't know a lot about it, right? Well, it could potentially contribute to fund guy. Or you could just be accumulating in your toes right now, Antonio. More likely somebody creates or just were discovered a new form of fungus and names it after the neutrino right after this podcast goes wild, but yeah, pretty much across the board. Everyone said I've never heard of this. Let me tell you how deeply disappointing that is to me as a particle physicist working at UC Irvine and let me tell you why. The reason is that the guy who discovered the neutrino and won the Nobel Prize for it? Okay and down at UC Irvine. We have a few Nobel prize winners, but it's not like we have dozens and dozens. It's not like Berkeley, where they have a special parking lot for Nobel Prize winners. Nobel Prize, Daniel Do not have a Nobel Prize as the recording of this podcast breaking news breaking news. You think that's something you would already know? Because if I had another prize, I'd be wearing it around my chest. T o. It was discovered by somebody in your campus right there, Fred Rightness. In fact, the building is now named after him. I worked in Rinus Hall, named after Fred Rinus, the Discover of the neutrino and he won the Nobel Prize. This is 1995. It's a pretty big deal around campus. And so you think maybe somebody on campus here you see, Herb, I would know. But what if one of the things that were famous for is it part of like the tours when people you know how people toured campuses and they say this is where the neutrino was discovered? Oh, my God. Don't even get me started. It is part of the tour, but it drives me crazy because every time they walk by my building and they hear the tour, and they say, Oh, this is the building named after Fred Run is the one the noble prize. Then they give a little spiel about the neutrino and they get almost everything about it totally wrong, And I'm tempted every time to step in there. Excuse me, actually, the training Mm. With that voice. I love it. I know how that's gonna go over. Nobody cares. But, you know, I feel like people visiting the campus deserve a good explanation might factor into their decision to go to UC Irvine. Let's record an excellent podcast about the neutrino, and then it will make it required listening for all the tour guides, and then I won't have to explain it to every single one of them, one of them Just just put it on the speaker. You stand outside your building with a boom box playing the podcast like in a say anything That's right. Yeah, I definitely will not get picked up by campus security. Two nanoseconds. Absolutely. Yeah, That's a great idea. Thank you. Hurry..

Then they'll come back. They'll be like, Hey, here's some money for you just because you helped us and no one will take the money because they see the camera. But then they jump into an uber pretending like their getaway driver wasn't there and the Ubers like no get out of my car, So he kicks them out. A minute later. The uber driver is held at gunpoint by the cops because they thought there was an actual bank robbery from the side and they go up to these kids. They're like, Hey, what did you guys do?

Butterflies Have Hearts In Their Wings. You'll Never Guess Where They Have Eyes
"Okay. Yeah. So I thought the photoreceptors in the general thing was pretty cool. But then on, explain to me what she does with butterflies in her lab at UC Irvine. Gosh is so fun to train. Butterflies is so cool to learn more about how butterflies seat Color Adriana trains them to fly towards. Let's say a certain type of Red Light. What we do is we train them to associate a colored light of a particular wave league with something. They really want butterflies always want nectar. And so we feed them by just placing them on the colored light I'm rolling for bosses letting them SIP. I, mean if the biggest question of Your Butterfly Day is who's going to unroll your purpose sticky next to a yummy pile of laboratory grade nectar. That's pretty good. Right, and after about a week, Adriana introduces a second colored light one, they haven't been trained to attacked. You give him the choice, and if they correctly choose the train collar, you know that they can distinguish between those two lights. Now, there's a little twisted us, which is that you have to test them over a series of relative brightness of two lights because. Some insects are positively or tactic meeting that they love flying toward. Aside from Understanding Butterfly Vision better. What kind of light and colors butterflies see could help us better understand how not to interfere with their environment. If we want to design buildings and unnatural objects that are sustainable dome inversely affect our animal and insect populations, we need to know something about what their sensory world is like. So. We mentioned that China has to make sure that the little butterfly isn't just flying towards the brightest light in her experiments. A lot of insects do that, and that's because scientists think it's part of a survival strategy. You can imagine that if you're a butterfly lie in forest under the canopy. It's a little bit darker under the canopy. Then if you're flying above the treetops and butterflies are constantly trying to avoid being eaten by lizards and birds, and one of the things that they do is they an escape response, which is to fly towards the Brightness Patch of light. They can find in their visual field. Yeah, and that's often a gap in the canopy. On, the subject of flying, it's actually something. Butterflies can't always do at the drop of a hat. They need to be warm to fly, but they're cold. So Adriana says, if you've ever seen a butterfly hanging out slowly opening and closing its wings that's called basking. They can open their wings. The wings pick up some like that hopes. Up Right, but they also have to be very careful. Opening their wings is really because it also means that usually they're more powerful parts are now visible to potential

A look at the coronavirus in six states slated to hold Democratic elections on Tuesday
"UC Irvine professor and election law expert Rick Hasen has been worried about the growing mistrust of American elections from disinformation campaigns administrative incompetence voter suppression efforts and claims of fraud or stolen elections now add to the mix the possibility of corona virus affecting where and how people vote analysts only grows of potential things that could go wrong during the twenty twenty election but hasn't says there are steps that can be taken now to fix problems and bolster confidence in our elections his new book is election meltdown dirty tricks distrust and the threat to American democracy thanks for joining us on former Casson it's great to be with you I know you've been thinking lately a lot about the ways the new coronavirus could impact our election so can you just start by telling us what you've come up with sure well you know we don't know the timing and we don't know the severity but right now we're in campaign season and so the coronavirus could affect a campaign rallies in of the president likes to do these rally so far he says he's going to continue with them yeah campaigning as important to as Biden and Sanders fights from state to state trying to get delegates at the next stage is of course the convention stage over the summer ringing a lot of people together into a you know close space and Milwaukee or Charlotte it's not out of the question that we have to move to a virtual convention which I think would not be as big of a deal if the convention is not contested if it is contested bend the rules for how there might be voting on various ballots would have to be considered and then of course there's the general election campaign it's not just the idea that some people might not want to go to the polling place not every place has absentee ballots available as we do in California for anyone who wants it but also the concern is about poll workers many poll workers tend to be older Americans who are apparently the most susceptible to the disease so there may be problems with staffing as well so I think now is the time to start thinking about what planning would look like imagine if you have a state or a city where there is a general kind of quarantine as we're seeing now in not parts of Italy and parts of China how are those people going to vote yes so a lot of questions that what you're saying raises and one of the things that you pointed out in your book is that one of the things that need to be improved especially in some parts of the country is just the administration of elections and I'm curious if you have confidence that there is enough experience and know how to put together a a pandemic contingency plan among election administrators well so the first thing you need to know about elections in the United States for president is that we don't conduct a single election we conduct more than eight thousand different elections because we have this hyper decentralized system very different than the way it's done in most other advanced democracies and so if you ask me are we ready you have to say well what's your sticks you talking about Alameda county is one thing Los Angeles kind is another thing you know you're mono county and pick your smallest county in California things could very much very that's why I think we need at the state level much more guidance and at the federal level some kind of thinking now about contingency plans K. are are we going to have the ability for example to move to vote by mail across large parts of the United States if we need to that it's not easy to send mailings with ballots to everyone in the country that has a lot of lead time associated with something like that well and also when you think about the powers at the federal level we had actually a question from a listener at a on a previous show asking about the president's ability to cancel an election if five if this hits you know major part Russians do you have any insight into that well so that elections are administered on the state level and the constitution when it comes to the presidential election gives the legislature the power to set the rules for choosing presidential electors another part of the constitution gives Congress the power to set rules for the conduct of congressional elections where the president could be involved is the present us have certain kinds of broad emergency powers powers that could in effect keep people quarantined or keep areas sealed off in the United States for public health reasons and that could have a direct impact on the election so while you know I don't think that's a R. I. presidential declaration of you know canceling or postponing the election is something that is within the president's powers there's lots that he could do that could affect election outcomes and all the more reason why I think Congress needs to act now in passing legislation that would deal with contingencies in the event that there are quarantines are other areas where it might be difficult for people to come out and vote and what do you think is the likelihood of that well you know generally speaking I'm very pessimistic about any kind of bipartisan action in Congress related to elections although we did see after a lot of cajoling of Mitch McConnell some action on additional funding for election security measures trying to harden our voter registration databases and provide our local election is treasure something so when there's enough of a crisis people can come together it's not clear to me that people are thinking ahead to November right now but now is really the time to do it because the closer you get to an election when you try to come up with contingency plans the more people are going to look at those contingency plans through the lens of which candidate is this going to help push came is this going to hurt and so so for example if we knew that you know solid Republican or solid democratic state was the place where you know voting might be most affected are that might affect how people politically would think but I'd much rather have the planning done now before we know where there might be these outbreaks that could affect people's ability to go to the polls because how concerned are you in terms of the president managing this crisis to his own political benefit well the early signs are not encouraging this morning the president was out there tweeting that the virus was not a big deal and pointing to the stock market and really seeming to look at these issues through his own political lands I don't know that that changes at any point that I haven't seen any reason to believe that the president's way of viewing all of public issues through the lens of his own political future if I don't think that's going to change so I really think it's going to take leadership elsewhere and if there were some kind of bipartisan agreement in Congress to come up with contingency plans I think that there would be a lot of a public support behind something like that I was struck by one of the arguments that you're making in your book collection not down that that you feel like most of their American voters are more likely to be disenfranchised by incompetent election administrators than say bye you know Russian interference or hacking or fraud do you still feel that way sure so let's talk about the hacking out the in the two thousand sixteen election one of the things that the Russians did that got I've probably the least attention but was maybe the most troublesome was that they sniffed around in voter registration databases in the fifty states you know they were able to find these weak links and get in and through phishing or other types of emailing activities they're able to get in and poke around in these voter registration databases but they didn't change any votes and so not what the Russians did was I think show that the our election system is not all that secure and that undermines people's confidence but that's not to directly disenfranchised thing I mean think about just last Tuesday and super Tuesday we had a number of voters in Los Angeles county which made a ton of sense changes to the election system having to wait three or four hours I don't know how many but certainly they were voters who decided to just give up you know we heard stories of voters who went from polling place to polling place because they have consolidated the polling places move to this new vote center model in parts of Texas there are people who waited up to seven hours to vote and which is really too much to ask of a voter I mean I have tremendous respect for the voters who did that but no voter should be put to that effect and so I do think that certainly in Los Angeles the story is not one of trying to suppress anybody's votes they're trying to make the voting experience better but that like any kind of system it takes awhile to work the Kinks out and there were some problems with how things went so I'd really stand by my view that you're much more likely to in this country to be disenfranchised because an election minister made a mistake in in setting up the polling place or in this case we had problems with the electronic poll books that we're creating a log jam at the polling stations young people check and then had to be checked against the state voter registration database that's much more of a problem than someone of being a victim of of Russian hacking or something

Minimum Wage Hikes Fuel Higher Pay Growth For Those At The Bottom
"Something unusual is happening in the US. Labor market workers at the bottom of the income ladder. Our finely seeing bigger pay raises than those who are higher up. That is partly because of the tight job. The market with unemployment near a fifty year low businesses have to pay more to attract new workers. Minimum wage though is also play here. Economists say minimum wage hikes at the state and local level. Well are giving a boost to millions of workers here's NPR's Scott horsely. Kista Jelly works a grocery store in Springfield Missouri. She typically works the closing shift noon. Eight or for three to ten PM. I'm a cashier Isis people every day with their groceries when she started almost two years ago jolly made minimum wage. which at the time was seven dollars? Eighty eighty five cents an hour in Missouri. She still making the minimum but thanks to a ballot. Measure passed in two thousand eighteen. That minimum is going up when jolly gets our first paycheck of twenty twenty twenty on Friday. She'll be earning nine forty five an hour. I would hope that it gets better and I think that I'll be better off but I think that it's going to still be a struggle jealous or paycheck. We'll still barely cover her rent and utilities. She relies on food stamps and school lunches to help feed her three children ages. Six eleven and fourteen jollies grateful that Missouri voters approved three additional increases in the minimum wage over the next three years by twenty twenty three to twelve dollars an hour. I've got at least a pecent living wage and then people can pay their bills. They can possibly get a few things on their wants list every month. Like kids need new clothes. or I'm that girl I ran out of Mascara like a month ago. Luxury items such as new socks in Arizona Colorado and Maine. The minimum wage is already twelve dollars an hour. Our the federal minimum has been stuck at seven twenty five an hour for more than a decade. But economists aren't today she says nearly two dozen states gave minimum. Wage workers raised raised on January. First if you're a minimum wage worker in America right now on average you're probably getting paid closer to twelve dollars an hour. That's what they call the effective minimum wage. And today she says those rising minimums are an important factor helping to lift up workers at the bottom of the pay scale. Right now the economy. Oughta me is doing something extraordinary. People at the bottom have actually seen higher wage growth than people at the top and in the middle minimum. Wages aren't the only factor. Today she says low wage workers also have more bargaining power now as employers scrambled to fill job openings. When unemployment's just three and a half percent the patchwork of minimum wages around the country. It does create a sort of natural experiment though for economists trying to measure the effects on low wage workers at least Gould who's the left-leaning Economic Policy Institute. Compared states raised their minimums to those. That didn't no matter how you cut it. The low wage workers are getting a larger wage boost in states that have raised their minimum wage. Gould estimates the higher minimums that took effect this month. Boosted paychecks for nearly seven million workers across the country economist. David Newmark of UC Irvine cautions. However the higher cost for employers may come with trade-offs. You're getting a raise if you keep your job and if you're ours don't change but there's plenty of evidence that there is some job Wasserman. The minimum wages and those workers are worse off newmark acknowledges job loss associated within wage. Hikes is probably less of a problem when unemployment is this low. CASSIA jolly hasn't seen any job cuts at the grocery store where she works. The cashier doubt she'd be getting a raise. Were it not required by the higher minimum. We still need to keep pushing for weird because hopefully people like me will be able to actually make it every month. Jelly says it's a shame when a grocery store worker has to choose between buying food and paying her bills

"Most of us were a bunch of knuckleheads who couldn't didn't tell you the Pulitzer Prize winning books of the era but it all read Friday night lights the Natural Balfour and the boys of winter. That's the way we went but at this this time moneyball was all any of US could talk about. This was all pre Brad Pitt movie released. This was just a book that had been whispered about and we. We're all excited to get a copy of what we read changed our knowledge of baseball but also formulated new methods of decision. Making it was almost like a business book wrapped into a sports story that enticed so many of us ever. Since that day I knew two things one analytics was going to be a thing and to. I always wanted to stay ahead of what is next. I wanted to have this focus where I was looking for and five years ahead of what was coming rather than reacting to it hammered into my head. You have to keep seeking what is next because the world and the industry will not be static. This was a big learning moment for me. The next big wave that was is obvious and plain to see and didn't take soothsayer and didn't have any special talent to identify. It was social media the coach growth the reached the opportunity was obvious but in some parts the sports world was still really slow. To adapt to this change was maddening. I left a really great prestigious job in part because I thought they were way too slow to see social and digital media as a necessity not a luxury well bring this up to say even with this renewed focus focus even with this idea of looking into the future and seeing what's coming next. I didn't see sports coming. Not only that. But I didn't see the sports world adjusting to the phenomenon so quickly and then not only that. But I'm sure as heck didn't see institutions of higher learning adjusting to the demand this quickly. You've heard me say many times by guys before for higher learning. Ken tend to be a little bit slow moving. They tend to be very reactive and wait for things to really play out for a while before they started justin curriculum or adding courses and things of that nature and it makes sense takes a lot to to create a new curriculum. And they want to make sure it's worth the time and it is a long standing demand for it but he sports a lot of schools have moved pretty quickly on. It's a special case and what may have seemed like a playground for computer programmers. animators and Gamers is actually a huge business with multiple levels of employment opportunities far beyond programming. Which is why we have on? Today's Guest Kevin He instructor for E. Sports Project Management at UC Irvine Line. Here's Kevin Hayes Kevin. How are you doing today? I'm good thanks for asking Brian. I'm really excited to have this conversation with you because we've had so many may different guests from the sports industry but this is only our second foray into the East sports world. I think you have a very unique perspective because not only are you an instructor in East East sports project management. We'll get into all of that but you're also someone who works at Blizzard Entertainment's you have both the hands on knowledge and you're working with young people every day. So thank you very much for coming on the show. Yeah it's an absolute pleasure for me. a big part of why I work at UC IRVINE NY works for the collegiate. Division of Blizzard is because You know I'm still you know still very much in the student world myself and so for me to be able to kind of talk about what it means to be a part of the industry and talk directly to students You know that's something. I'm very passionate about so. Thanks for having me. That's great. Let's dig into it. I love this. I love that you're excited because I'm excited to do so. In my experience advanced education can tend to be slow to adapt to neutrons analytics was something that was all the rage for a long time before we really started getting on seeing it on the college campuses and be something that was being taught and trained a lot of times. Advanced Education is going to wait and see mode rather than jump on the wave. Save but you've been in the sports industry for about five years and we'll dig into all those details. I'm curious as an instructor in east boards project management at UC Servino. How did this opportunity come up? Because that's a pretty forward thinking decision by the university to to see this trend happening and to do something to jump on that wave. How did it come about for you? And what's it been like so far. Yeah it's actually. It was a pretty big surprise to me too. I hadn't even heard about this certificate course until pretty recently It was actually a the curriculum was designed by a a former colleague of mine. Micky Quinn who now works at Second Dinner which is Been Birds New Gimmick dolman started after he Luck Blizzard But the program manager for the East Sports Project management or these sports management certificate. GET PROGRAM AC. Irvine and Henry No He's very forward thinking he's awesome I think for that course or that sort of of course they really wanted to kind of identified this this gap in education where very few universities offer courses related to the gaming industry the East sports industry and if they do it's usually around Game Design which has been around for a little bit longer And so for him being able to bring in not necessarily professors who have Decades unexperienced doing research but actual industry professional to work at a day In the industry and can kind of talk to the they're a new innovation challenges that that happened with very young industry That's really cool. And so when Nikki left to join second dinner with with Ben There was no instructor for the course and so one of my friends who works at twitch. introduced me to Brian and we talked a little bit. I love the idea of the course and I reached out to to Nikki into a my other product management mentors and they they all said that it was a great opportunity so decided to To just take a chance on a lot of fun. Yeah it's a total different world when you go from being a contributor in the job workforce to then teaching other people getting out there and and sharing your knowledge but also like forming their opinions and kind of building their foundation the industry. What's kind of been the biggest challenges you get in front of these students and give us an overview of how you view project management? I don't get it. That's a big term. It's a lot of a lot that goes into project management but in east sports world. How would you characterize it? And what students get when they're in this class. Yeah So it's funny because I my upbringing Basically contains no Formal project management training any point Blizzard I'm a product manager for a department called pesto which focuses on didn't gaming because our department is very small it's very much like a startup within blizzard We often wear many hats. And so I they studied a ton of project management principles and methodologies In my free time I just helped me better manage my team and also could be a better team mate I also have project management mentors at at Blizzard. bye-bye said I often go to different challenges that I face day to day life and and they they provide me you know solution using their project management experience works and it's really helpful to me so when I started to take on on this course I knew that way I was going to have to learn alongside the students But again because of the sports industry she is very new. I think that even the way that you know. Traditional Project Management Jeez and practices. These are applied to a new industry. So that really. There are very few experts in project management and so for this class It's actually a product management. Of course that use it as a Machi sports live events as a catalyst were understanding like basically project manager one so over the course students will pitch. A sports events can be like a tournament or viewing party. Or you know an in international. You know twenty million dollar you know call of Duty League and Going throughout the weeks. They'll turn it from a pitch into a project charter. They'll not out. What their stakeholders are? They'll do their budgets and their Their publishing schedule They the go-to one week where I basically just tossed by that up and tell them that you know. They're they're players visas guys you know denied and so what are you GonNa do or your venue you know needs to go under renovations so you don't use half the space and then they move into the actual itself where we're similar things things happen and like you know there's inclement weather and you know one of your one of your players know is. It went missing last night when you're going to do and then we move. It's very funny. And then afterwards they they wrap it up and then do post mortem and we we spend weeks stakes developing their their soft skills and doing strange assessments high. Slow going tell me more I wanNA hear. It's actually you know I. I have to give credit to to my colleague Nicky for designing earning the curriculum alongside the awesome staff number that easier vine But it was a lot of fun to jump into the course I think that you know if you if you look at it. From a project. Management standpoint The education that you're getting is probably no different than what what you would get from. Most other INTRO intermediate product management classes or courses. Anywhere else you if you wanted to. You know we we live in a in in an in a digital world you can probably learn most of this online but I think for the students really get the opportunity to see how a you know what has now become basically basically hard technical skill set product management. How do you apply that to an industry? A new industry and how does produce medicine manifest itself in in day-to-day get get a day life of project managers in the sports industry. And I do think that's really awesome. And I think you know eastport houses mystery worry about it A lot of people still have no idea what it means to work in the industry. You know if you're a high school student or a college student you have this idea that you you know maybe you know your your game developer or like a team manager or like league coach but beyond that. There's there's so much mystery and what it means to to actually be working industry down so I think what this does is it Kinda just gives people a taste of what might be like and if that can help some people figure out that it's not their thing then that's also really important. It's important figuring out whether or not it is everything. It's so funny as you're talking so many ideas bouncing around my head and conversations stations at your sparking from this because it's fascinating that so much of what we do here is have these conversations so that you can introduce people to various opportunities and what's out out there and let them know that these things existed it. Sounds like that's so much of what you're presenting as part of this courses that there's more to eastport than just coding or game design. But I also I wanted to go back to your earlier point when I was first starting out in the broadcast media. There was no catastrophe training as I'd almost call it like I wouldn't be doing I'd be doing a live. Live show and like the lights would go out and you're like oh my gosh for on live. TV What am I supposed to do right now or like the equipment would go down or the teleprompter stopped working or whatever and that is real. You live training that you are providing to get. Somebody's mind framed around. This concept of things won't always go right. So what are you going to do in those moments and that's such valuable life training right..

What are the good men on the scene? Lenny. What's happening? I reckoning. I Gotcha trip San Jose. But it was it was an awful lot of fun. How was the how was the vibe everywhere is good at this point in the tournament. But certain cities are better than San Jose pop. That was it in the in the arena the arena was packed. Yeah. Is it kind of surprised me because they didn't necessarily have a dog in the the name UC Irvine might have been the closest team and that was down in Orange County. And you know, you had Oregon north of there, but everyone seemed to travel well, and they were definitely receptive to having three double digits seeds upset the favorites there. Yeah. No. That's all. That's awesome. You know, look at liberty was a team that played they took over, gene technology. Yeah. They play Virginia Tech. And you know, when you when you have these smaller schools, but in state, kind of rivalry rivalries. Right. The that that brings a different type of anticipation excitement, I guess interest from from back home. What was the feeling for the liberty team, which as you mentioned was one of those teams that upset someone in the first round figure a lot of stories that were going around one they had scrimmaged earlier during the year of putting together to to raise money for some. Mccain victims, and so they met each other this these two teams met each other earlier in the season. Then there was another one where Ritchie McKay spoke earlier in his career. He met buzz Williams and didn't like them. Arrogant, but learn to like them, they're now pretty good friends, and you can see the embrace before the games. So I mean, a couple of vibes going on that, you know, we're pretty interesting. And then obviously, the guys I always say familiarity, breeds contempt. You know, got a little chippy a couple of times during the game. But it was hard and fast and intense competition, and you know, ACC school versus a son school. You could see the sides differential, you can see strengths differential, but but liberty held his own as long as it could. And you know, you mentioned buzz, and and obviously you've done a lot of biggies work over the years. And he was at Marquette did a great job there, obviously. Whoa. Joe is there now. But he was there before Virginia Tech is it's a tough school to win it. I mean, there's a reason why there's there's a dearth of NCWA banners hanging from the big borne out there in Blacksburg. It's their basketball infrastructure while I'm sure it's gotten a lot better with with buzz. It's it's it's not elite to say the truth. I I just don't know. I know you don't love to speculate on this stuff. But I wonder how low buzz Williams, get a stay at Virginia Tech and any thoughts on that. Because there are some rumblings. He might be getting ready to bounce d-. Have you heard anything you have any opinions on that? I haven't heard anything..

"I'm not gonna lie Maryland, Maryland, beaten, Belmont was probably the most shocking in kidding. UC Irvine was technically the their the thirteenth either the by seed, they're the worst team left in this thing. But they won thirty games in a lot of people. So that's not that you're you know, you're not shocked by that. Which is a good thing. Because as the good teams win they're going to have to play each other. And that means we get good games. So I actually don't mind this. We firmly put our flag team blueblood team non upsets less last tournament. So I'm going to do that again and say that I like good teams winning basketball games. It's much better that way, they learned that with you in BC last year that we're the Kansas state. You have BC game was horrible. It was it was dreadful to watch. And no one wanted admit it because they become even be fans. But yeah, that was that was a really Bruno gave to watch. So I'm glad that you guy tweeting right now. He so upset. All right. So let's look ahead. What what what what what sticks out? What what are we trying to solve here? Murray state, Florida state. Does it have your attention a little twelve four games? Well, how do we feel about Florida state this closer against Mont than I thought it should have been we were high on Florida's day. I feel like. For two states in Florida state is the team every year that Cincinnati wants to be how about that. I don't know if that's a compliment. Yes. Literate Hamilton in that game against from out. He was doing a lot of stuff to basically shoot themselves in the foot at any which is a very tournament thing for Linda to do at times not this early in the tournament. I do want us talking about this. How much time John Moran? Turns man, that's a good match up. I wanna watch those guys those are two NBA players that we care about. I think that this is going to be the time when we see the difference between John rant and the rest of his teammates going up. You know, this is going to be right. I would suspect. But also, I I don't really think is going to drop a game plan to just figure out how to double team, Jon ran. I think he's going to let them go. And do what he does and expect them to play their game. Florida's leading 'isolation Florida say can contain job Moran much better than Marquette ever. Could Marquette didn't have the personnel to ever do it. The they were never going to start slowing down. It's over plan. Do we know folk oh for I would say, no, I actually don't know. I don't think he is Kevin galleys. Best big men on their team. Let's just say he's not. We'll figure it out. Yeah. I not Wofford Kentucky sticks out to me too. Though. That's a that's a game. I'm very looking forward to very much tomorrow Saturday. I think my district tomorrow. Yeah. That's going to be a good eleven eleven forty on the west coast for thanksgiving. Who who would you put on flush media? The choices are basically Hagans killed Johnson. Or the sneaky pick would be Tyler hero. Yes. Because these white guys shooters know how to guard white guy shooters. It's just like, I know your move. You're moving agenda where you're trying to do. Yeah. I could see that. Yeah. I think Hagans will be the ones that they put on him though. Right. And he's supposed to be. Yeah. I don't know. I don't think you can really go wrong. But I think you should I think gotta worry about storm St. the storms coming Fletcher Fletcher just a little like, you know, like draw away the tension. From storm storm's gonna have a big game. Here's the question when when when it happens where where they go all when they go all in the whoever Wofford's playing goes all in on stopping flush McGee is Fletcher have the capacity. I'm not saying either way, I don't really know haven't been falling offer that much. I've watched probably four Wofford games in the last two years. Does he have the capacity to like be fine with shooting six times in a game? Because he's like getting double teamed. And I don't know. I know. No, you don't think..

"Good morning Clark. Hey, good morning. Jason good to be down to the round of thirty two now and just eight games today instead of the mayor it's almost disappointed. I guess there's multiple ways to look at it. We get the good stuff though. Right. Because this is when you get the hang that Sweet Sixteen banner. There's no second round banner. This sixteen bands. Real quickly on last night before we get ready for it today between UC Irvine and liberty really what that does for their programs the same way that Wofford's had wanted and Belmont there. I turn it wins. It's been almost an historic tournament without having that buzzer beater moment. Exactly. And that's what is so wonderful about the tournament. You know, the stories are coming. You know, the unexpected things are coming. You know, the first times are coming for programs for players and so forth. So fantastic story with cow Irvine with liberty and Ritchie. Mckay. Just terrific. Good stuff, and we can't dismiss or ignore. They state buckeyes island business in a way that only that's the only way they could have won that game is to grind it out. Muck it up and find enough offense play through the big guy and make it happen. And I couldn't be happier or prouder of that whole group because I have my doubts. You know, we talked and I had my. Doubts because of Iowa state's ability to score. But it was it was good to see holding the big twelve scoring leader fifty nine very impressive. Hey, speaking of the big ten seven and one. Yeah. It's extremely impressive seven teams to the second round ties. A record the big east done it twice. But aside from the conference getting the credit that was discussed all year. It is the first time that two big ten teams have met in the amount since two thousand with Minnesota and Michigan state playing each other today. I know they only met once during the regular season. But they know each other because they're in the same conference. Does that make a difference? Think it does I think it does especially if you've come up on the bottom side of the scoreboard. And now you've got added motivation that would be Minnesota be Minnesota. And they're playing better. I mean, nobody foresaw the way Minnesota played in getting to this point. I mean, they made eleven threes. I don't know. When was the last time they had made a double double digit threes never in tournament history. I mean, so you always have these kinds of circumstances. You watch the team. And then you think about how they play in the tournament. And you don't even know who that team is based on what they do in the tournament. Sometimes the beauty of it. So I think familiarity breeds contempt, but it also gives you a comfort level no matter where you've been win or loss. There's a comfort level there that can serve you. Well, so two seeds in Des Moines both from the big ten and then Minnesota's there as well. Which to CD you have more concern about today, if they're not going to move forward is that the Spartans against the gophers or is it Michigan against Florida? Oh, man. I'm actually fairly confident of both. Really? I am. I just couldn't split those hairs. I think both will find a way they'll be tested, but I think both will will move forward. Speaking of being tested, all three one seeds on Friday were tested, right Virginia. And Carolina bowl trailed sixteen seats at the half. Duke was only up by four on North Dakota state. The only ones that cruised. It's opening game was Gonzaga. What type of struggle might they have of Baylor. I don't anticipate much Baylor's terrific offensive rebounding team. They can be streaky from the perimeter. There are a little quirky and funky defensively. But I think has the best repertoire the best ingredients to play multiple ways. So I think they'll be fine. I really do. I think they're Tilly coming back and looking like he's in pretty good form gives them quite a bit of ammunition. So I think Gonzaga will be fine. Yeah. A little bit more physical test today against Baylor. You're gonna win a championship, man. You gotta go through the gauntlet, right? There's no easy roads to cut down on on the first Monday in April John second, Monday, April eighth this year. John Mirant the headline on Thursday triple double if he's continuing the magic it's got to go through a good defensive team in Florida state. What do you think I think he's going to be John Moran? Will that be enough? Obviously, he's not by himself as people found out who hadn't watched Murray state. They've got ballers at every position. They're they're fearless there on the freight the length depth of Florida state might be too much to overcome. But that is a match up that I put four asterisk around. Once we saw it unfold. So you're saying that you're not going to pay attention to the other two. Be getting the big part of the TV screen. Well, that's good. And and everybody else's. Well, oh, by the way, the the radio waves will be focused their to Clark. Thank you very much. So we will see you tomorrow. All right. Look forward to Jason have another great day, man. All right tournaments getting going in just about fifteen minutes with Maryland LSU, and we continue on the other side from the Westwood One NCAA radio network. This is the tournament today.

Beat the Kansas state, the Wallabies whatever the hell they are in Kansas state and the guy who was watching every second of a big fan of UC Irvine. He calls the games on weekends. He went to UC Irvine is with us. Tim cates. Are you Bob? Yeah. Shot up for the condos of UC Irvine Jong with those condos buddy that was that was a really fun game to watch. I started watching that this morning around eleven o'clock, and it was a really cool game to watch tied up at halftime. And then it looks like Kansas state was going to roll over him and this team came back. Yeah. This is a good team. Conway Keno one sixteen in a row coming into the big dance. And they beat Kansas state. The Wildcats, by the way of case, they okay. Well, copper, and it shouldn't be surprised. This is a team that you know, came in wallet. They were the best team in their conference loaded with talent. This was sort of the year. Russell Turner their head coach a former Stanford assistant coach kind of building this program. They went to the NCAA tournament. Back in twenty fifteen. He's got a wall hazards grandson. He's got doc. Rivers kid, right? Yeah. Doc Rivers kid Karam's Butler. Laker analysts star his sons on the team as well loaded with NBA pedigree. And this is a good fun carrying the flag for southern California basketball, right now, you know, I it was great to see a bunch of the kids. The went to San Jose. Even though today was going to be the first your last day of school. I as spring break a whole caravan of kids went up to route that team on. Yeah. This is a program that doesn't get a lot of attention Conway, you know, that. It's all you see sometimes Northridge is good. Sometimes Cal State Fullerton is good. But the fact that UC Irvine is is the team were all rallying around. I mean, everybody's freaking out right now because they don't know what dot dot is. And I guess that's what an aunt ear said. For my comic book from back in the day. And it's sort of been incorporated with us. In the end eaters. It says dot dot. So everybody's like what the heck is thought. But that's their slogan you'd like fight on is for Trojan fans, and and USC folks thought dot is for UC Irvine fan. You know, I was hoping that that UC Irvine would get up by you know, fifteen or twenty points in the end. So they would throw Laurie Laughlin kid Olivia Jade in for a couple of shots. Yeah. That would have been nice. Didn't you go there? Oh, no. She went USC that was her fallback that was her fallback. Hey, so what's the next game for Irvine? Do we know yet they play in the next round? I think they got Oregon in the second round. That's right. I I could be completely wrong because no, you're right. Rise by by the food talk. Conway. Chef Ryan Evans with in-studio on AM five seventy money yesterday. And or maybe two days ago. Brought the food and he bought that sixteen inch soften jalapeno sausage yet. But the the best thing that he brought in and you didn't even get to it. Shame on. You was the Al pasta order sausage. Unbelievable. It's gonna be the new fan favorite. I'm telling you outside the dodger dog in the cooler and the right pretzel in the nachos. The alpine store sausage with apple salsa, and I got a little bit salons on their apple chunks on real. Everybody knows know listen to show. I'm I've always been a fan of the big sausage. Yeah. Bigger come out, right. No, but sixteen and a half inch sausage of the jalapeno sausage. I think is great for an evening game, seven o'clock in April. But I don't know August thirteenth Sunday at one o'clock when it's one hundred and five of the stadium sixteen and a half inches of sausage could be it. It's so big Conway, you can't put your hands around it. You gotta get a knife and a fork out. Can't eat it like a traditional sausage or hot dog. Butch your hands away. Get the forty nine found you gotta cut this bad boy up. Well, I have a feeling I've come up with the name of it. You know when you're halfway through. It's the seven inch stretch. There you go. Aw. The body softens you cut it. You work for in the outfield. What's going to happen, though? Guys are going to buy that sausage. It's gonna be a bad call on the field and acting can whipping on the mound like a baton. It's one of the reasons why they don't give out, you know, miniature bats at Dodger Stadium anymore because too many throwing them at the players. Yeah. You get like a coupon. And then you get it on the way out. That's what's going to happen. They're going to have to number though. Sausages to see who threw it out onto the field. Do you have UC Irvine fever Conway bender? I know you do your your amid Major Guy. Cal you love it you. Yes. Dot dot it. Yeah. I think I I'd love to say, yes. But I only knew yesterday that they were in the tournament. And again, I thought their mascot was a condominium. So I was wrong on that level as well. But this is great. And by the way, that coach should be now I have a front runner for some of these big huge jobs that are available. You would think so I guess two years ago he was in the running for the cow job and just fell short. And he's a former Stanford assistant. He's he's got the pedigree. He's done his job at the head coach. Maybe a lot of people say, well, I'll get the UCLA job now. Well, yeah. This is this is great. Because you see your vine is never won a playoff game in the history of that school. Yeah. All right, buddy. Thanks for coming on with us..

"All right. Ranford shila so yesterday, John Moran. A triple double Wofford its first ever tournament win. Not a lot of upsets per se. You did have a couple of ten seats win. But it's Minnesota and Florida's not smaller schools. You kind of get the sense that today might be something a little bit different. Don't you? Well, it's it's reality TV. So yesterday the forum held we had some good games hike high level competition, obviously, some great individual performances, but yeah, for sure well, looking for something crazy to happen. As it always does. And I'm excited to see where that upset might be. I'm also anxious to see some of the best players in this tournament. Get started on a tournament run. And obviously that starts with Zion. And that's later on tonight. The one seed we'll take North Dakota state as for the one seats. It was a year ago that Virginia lost UNBC. Everyone is heard that a million times now, but you like Virginia to win the national championship. Are you concerned at all I guess twenty three and eleven Gardner Webb. Well, you have to be because Gardner Webb shoots the ball. So well from outside. That they can obviously get hot. Now having said that Virginia is the best team in the country at defending the three more importantly what I wanna see today from Virginia is their psyche. You know, how they get out of the gate knowing that for three hundred sixty five days all we've talked about is not so much. What a great regular season. They've had is what's going to happen when they get to the NCAA tournament in two thousand nineteen that day is here. So I can't wait to see what they look like when they get started against the team. That's in the tournament for the first time ever, right? How about the games are nearly window? Cincinnati in Iowa tips off in just about ten minutes in Columbus will get you there for the tip the game after that all missing Oklahoma. It's a perfect eight nine matchup friend because it's two teams that had struggles. Right. Yeah. Eight nine match, but it's a totally different Oklahoma team than the one that came into the tournament last year with trae young. Yeah. That team was actually both teams are similar in that they come into the tournament reeling a little bit. Both teams had terrible February's Oklahoma is here by the virtue of what they did in the non conference as much, but this is an interesting game because there are better defensive team than the trae young team. They do not score the ball easily on the other hand ole miss three. Outstanding guards young man named by the name of Brienne Tyree who grew up across the river, New Jersey from where we are today. And he's been there outstanding player and Kermit Davis. First year. Whole family. We're Mississippi State BULLDOGS he's wearing the blue and red now the running rebels excuse me, the ole miss rebels anxious to see them get out of the gate after coming from middle Tennessee where he won tournament games there. As lower seats today. It's a different story is eight nine. And then there's the fourth thirteen match up. That's going to start the day in San Jose right around two eastern. Kansas state without dean Wade was one of the best players in the big twelve against the UC Irvine UC Irvine team that's making the tournament for the second time ever their thirty and five there on a sixteen game winning streak and ever since the news came out the dean, wait wasn't gonna play. This seems to be the spot that a lot of people like an upset. Yeah. Absolutely. Now, let me the caveat. Here is that the Kansas state team that went to the elite eight last year only had dean wait for eight minutes in that tournament. Russell Turner's UC Irvine team deep used to winning outstanding defense makes it difficult for opponents to score. That's why we're going to have a low scoring game. So you think like fifty s yeah. Because. Five fifty three. Both teams are outstanding defensively and keep in mind. Even though there's no dean Wade Barry Brown's been there and done that with this team in a tournament. You love Xavier Snead he had twenty I think twenty two against Kentucky last year in that Sweet Sixteen win they have tournament experience. So what you're saying is if you don't like listening to low-scoring basketball to Westwood One sports dot com. So you can listen to one of the other games going on is that what you're saying? I called I call those kind of a masterpiece the fourth game that starts the window. It's in Tulsa, Texas Tech the three seat off of an elite eight last year. Also as a three seat they will take on northern Kentucky Norse in the tournament for the second time ever the other was two years ago when they lost to Kentucky's fifteen see, but they are a good team under John Brennan again that will.
Deep Dive into March Madness
"To this point. We've got Abilene Christian beating Kentucky. We have seen the whole over walford. And we have Georgia state over Houston. All upsets is it your belief that any of those could actually happen. I would say you might as well just go and put money on those because if any of those hit you guys are going to be rich your need. The giants sponsor the show. So. Look, I think I don't know you say you had Wofford or seeing hall winning that game. We have Seton Hall. Seton Hall is winning that game. Yeah. Like, I think that's one that could realistically happen. I will say that while you know, me the supposed- expert isn't picking Georgia's state like I don't think it's inconceivable that they win that game. They they have no probably have the best player on the floor. They have a kid named DeMarcus Simmons who's going to play in the NBA at some point. He he actually he averaged eighteen a game this year and his numbers are actually down a little bit. So I don't know that I would be the guy to pick Abilene Christian over to Turkey. If that's where the darts are going. I do think you're right. Yeah. The the dogs are feeling it and might be by the way, we should tell everyone that you're biased can you? Tell everyone the name of your book. Please. Oh, yeah. No. I had a book about Kentucky basketball. You know, what I was gonna say to you was is that when you say nobody knows what they're doing. So I I said this on another radio interview this morning is there's a reason that they offer a billion dollars for a perfect bracket every year, and nobody wins it. So I think that as much as I'd like to say that the hours and days, I've spent in front of the TV and talking to coaches and talking to you know, is that it's all worthwhile. When I fill out the bracket. I don't know that throwing darts at a wall isn't just a better option than what I've been doing. Thank you very much. Would you like to be with us right now as we select a couple more games? Yes. Okay. I tell me what you think real quick just give me like fifteen seconds or less on Ohio State versus Iowa State. So I always state they got three or four pros on that team. They could legit make the Sweet Sixteen or elite. I wanna be surprised they could legit lose to Ohio State. And I would it be spread. Okay. So if you wouldn't be surprised by anything. This is a a pressure free throw that I'm about to make Ohio states the eleven I was states the six so rat is Ohio State Brown will be Iowa State. Here we go. We got read. Again, we got nothing but upset so Ohio State is going to defeat. I was day. But you don't think that's crazy. I don't think it's crazy. So state hit Ohio State. Yeah. We've got nothing. We've take four games so far. It's all upsets, I don't know why I'm hitting hitting all here on the board. There you go out to Vegas. It all read their. Let's you know. So no, I don't I don't think that's insane. At all. I mean, Ohio State plays in the big ten. They laid great teams all year. They've been good teams Iowa State again. These are the facts that are going to be meaningless when my bracket blows up, but they lost five out of their last six games in the regular season. They got hot in the last week. I don't think it's insane. At all that Ohio State would pull that upset. Okay. Let's do one more Jimmy ten seconds on Kansas versus northeastern. Kansas. I'll say this hits read I won't be surprised really was Kansas was a biz mole on the road this year. So they had a couple injuries. A couple of suspensions. You know, one guy's not playing, you know, guardian took some money and got caught by the FBI. And so they went like one in seven away from home in their last eight games. So it waiting their last eight games away from home. So it would not surprise me. If on a neutral court, they got upset I'd hear it goes, Kansas versus northeastern. Okay, Kansas is going to survive Kansas is going to win round one. So we do have our first favorite of the first round. And will be Kansas defeating northeastern very exciting stuff. I'm I'm glad that you're you're right in the middle here, though that you're you're becoming one of us us us. Every man college basketball fans were just like, yeah. I'd this could go either way. I'm glad you're saying that right now. Well, I remember a few years ago. First of all my bracket is always the worst one. And everyone's like, what are your picks? And I'm like, you don't really want my picks. But I remember, you know, I was talking with our buddy Colin cowherd three years ago. And he said do you get mad when everybody else that doesn't watch like me has a better bracket than you? And I said, you know, Colin, I'm a lot like Bill Belichick. I just focus on myself. I don't worry about the outside noise. What it does drive me a little bananas that all these all these men hours. I put loving the sport. And it's all for nothing come March. I wanna ask you this. This is a conversation that was happening here at the office about an hour ago. Which is the best college basketball team in the state of California this year. Oh, man. I feel like I had this conversation. It's obviously not USC. It's not. I'm trying to think, you know, I think it might be UCLA by down. And there's only there's just a letter listeners. All there's only two teams from the entire state of California in this bracket at its UC Irvine, it probably should have been without a major upset. It would have only been one. It's UC Irvine in Saint Mary's that's wild that's wild. I think Saint Mary's would probably went on a neutral court, but I'll tell you what Irvine is one if the dark skew towards Irvine that would not surprise me at all like, I know you said a minute ago. Nobody knows these head coaches follow, blah, all I'm saying is as cow is abysmal in the Pac twelve Russell Turner. Who's the head coach at UC Irvine? They could be they could do themselves a favor to give him a call, by the way, he coached at Stanford. He was in assistant with the Golden State Warriors. He knows the bay area that guy can coaches, you know, what off I don't know that he'd be a great interview for your show. You just want more entertaining. College basketball. You should have your. Your buddies over Cal get him a call. Hey, while we're on it. What are we doing here with with Pac twelve sports? What's what's what's happening right now? So as anti Pac twelve is anybody as everybody because I think the bottom line is we had the worst combined year ever since they've been recording numbers in wins and losses for Zona and UCLA in the same season. We gotta season where one's been bad. We've had a season where another has been bad. But we've never had a season where they're collectively as bad. And so what I always say is, you know, we would be talking about how bad the ACC was if Duke in North Carolina had historically their worst seasons combined ever the big twelve. Did it feel a sexy this year because Kansas wasn't good? And I just think look Arizona. They have the number one or three class coming in. They're going to get right? But if errors Zona was just what they've been in UCLA was just what they've been all of a sudden, you add two more top twenty five teams in you. Then potentially have five bitch the NCAA tournament. Nobody feels bad now with that said, I can't really speak for football, which is a total mess, but basketball, I think it's cyclical I think they'll be fine. I see that you said getting back to the brackets the Tennessee and Michigan state where the two teams that got screwed. Why why do you think that? So two different reasons. I think in general nobody really has a big gripe. But Mark, you know, for people who don't follow this stuff three hundred sixty five days a year in the past the committee has kind of made this big stink about we do wanna keep teams close to home because you know, we don't want these student athletes to travel, whatever buffalo, blah. I know where you stand on all that. But they always have given preferential treatment to the higher seeded teams. It's a very simple concept you bust your butt. You're awesome all year, you shouldn't have to play in somebody's backyard in so Tennessee could potentially in round to have to play Cincinnati in Columbus, Ohio, which is only about an hour from Cincinnati. I just think that's totally unfair for a team. That's done. You know, they they've been awesome. And it could come down to their basically playing a true road game in the NCAA tournament, you know, after six months of hard work. I just think that's kinda nonsense and then when Michigan state. You know, it's the deal of the committee considered them one of the quote unquote, best number two seeds. So then why are they lined up with the best number one seed, and do it makes absolutely no sense to me. Yeah. That's interesting. All right. Gimme gimme the dark horse that could make some noise who's wearing Cinderella. This year. Well, I'll tell you. I know I know you have a primarily NBA audience Murray state with John Mirant got to be a lottery pick that kid is unbelievable. He average twenty four games scoring led the nation in this. I think he is every bit the real deal. And if you told me he put his team on his back. I'll Steph curry wins to three games basically by himself. It wouldn't surprise me kid is just out of this world. I think whether you follow college basketball, whether you're following the darts. That's a kid to watch out for because he's

"Potentially high NFL draft prospect in studio Christian Wilkins, former Clemson defensive tackle. That's coming up next hour rod Brindamour now number three. But as promised we are joined right now by the head basketball coach at UC Irvine. He is in his ninth season at UCI a two time conference coach of the year. He led the and eaters to four regular season titles a conference tournament title five postseason appearances UC Irvine twenty five and five on the season thirteen one conference play. And they take on Cal poly Thursday night. Seven PM Pacific. Russell Turner is my guest Ross nice to have you back on the show. How are you? I'm doing great. Jim. It's great to be with you. I can't thank you for having me and use your van on the show. Russ otas. Great to talk to you. And it's great to talk UCLA basketball. Let me ask you this. I beat UC riverside Saturday, and you wrapped up the big west regular season title is I mentioned that gives you twenty five wins on the year. Most in regular season school history. You've won eleven straight. How is life around UCI and on campus right now? Life is always good on campus at UC Irvine. Anybody who's ever been here knows that? And our team is doing well right now, I'm pleased with that. And you know, we're still hungry. I've got a group. That's as competitive is is any I've been around, and they love the fact that I'm pushing them, and they're also pushing me so we have a house what's still to come. You know, I was there not long ago. I was in your house, and you guys are hungry. They play hard. That's the place really really hard. Let me ask you about Johnson Galloway. He broke the school record for career rebounds. And that title is in addition to a couple of big west defensive player of the year awards, which you already owns how much is he meant to the team and to the program overall. Oh, man, Jonathon Galloway is just a quintessential college basketball player. He's unbelievable Representative of this university. As you mentioned, he's the all time leading rebounder. He's going to be the first player ever to get the defensive player of the year ward for three times. You know, his stats don't indicate all the impact he has on us. He's just a a winning player. And what I've said recently, Jim that I think resonates with people is that I haven't been around again have a similar impact on a team since I was an assistant coach for Tim Duncan at Wake Forest, and people know what Tim Duncan became before. It became all that we saw the impact he had gallows had an impact here at Irvine. That's amazing praise right there. And I'm gonna ask you about your time at Wake Forest in a couple of minutes. Russell Turner is the head coach UC Irvine thing is you've got some amazing depth on this team. You've got the ability to play nine guys nearly starters minutes as a head coach. How valuable is it to have that kind of depth and that kind of options they've opened things up for you. What's incredibly valuable to have so much talent is all been willing to make sacrifices and that's been the key to our team success? You know, we do feel like we have at least nine guys who could be considered starters. Both with their contributions and the minutes they play in all of those guys has been willing to sacrifice for their teammates. And I think that's given this team energy and allows us to continue to have momentum's deep in the year. UC Irvine is one twenty five games their head coach Russell Turner is my guest now when you and I spoke on the eve of your first tournament, they're back in two thousand fifteen we talked about how there had not been a big basketball racially UC Irvine and the word had been that. This simply was not a place where we can have success. But now you're in a position now where you can add even more trophies to what you've already done how much has that narrative changed in recent years. Yeah. Think the narrative has changed altogether. And it was I remember vividly where I was standing when I talked to you last on the first that first NCAA tournament game we're still hoping to break through again in the NCAA tournament because that's such an impactful opportunity for our university. If we can do it we've said now the goal is changed. Not just to make the NCAA tournament. But to be in position and good enough to advance. I think that if we can make it this year we do have team. It's good enough. We'll see if we can continue to build on the goals. But I do think the perception of our program is altogether different crowd of that. And a lot has gone into that a lot of people have play part in that most. Specifically, my players, obviously my staff, but it's been a team effort UC Irvine head coach Russell Turner, my guests. So in terms of changing that narrative, I know you're not gonna Pat yourself on the back to much but over the course of the season is there a better college team in California, then UC Irvine. I'm glad you asked. I don't think there is. Obviously an opinion statement. But it's also one I think that can be backed up by the numbers this year. The only team that's ranked higher than we are at California your Saint Mary's, and we beat them on their home floor and one of the things we always struggled with the scheduling the teams in California. We play any of them this year, some of the ones that are usually good or down. And we're not we're up, and I do like to promote the fact that if you stacked everybody up week likely be on top of this year. Russell Turner, my guess now if you've had the kind of success that you've had your name is going to come up for other jobs. So how do you approach that? Do you owe it to yourself to answer the phone when it rings? I mean, everybody likes to be recognized for being solid at what they do. But what I'll say to you on that. Jim is that if you've been here you've been on this campus? I've got a great life here. I've got a great team program in place where I fit really well. And I could see myself being here for a long time. Like, other coaches, I've admired if done, you know, Bob McKillop at Davidson been his place for a long time ready Bennett at Saint Mary's been his place for a long time. Mark you Gonzaga's been his place for a long time. There's not much better at coaching them to feel like you've got a great fit. And I feel like I've got that. With with my players in our program here, we're talking to UCI head coach Russell Turner going back to something we've talked about you played your college ball at Hampton, Sydney. Were you were a division? Three all American, and then you served as an assistant there before he went to work for Dave Odem it Wake Forest, which meant you were coaching, Tim Duncan. And then he chased by. Coaching Steph curry in Golden State. There are not too many people on the planet who can say they've coached both guys. What were those experiences? Like, those are those are incredible experiences to draw from you know, as an athlete. I'm not an athlete more. But to watch those incredibly high level, athletes and all the things that go into making them good. And then from a coaching standpoint to see the impact that those two had was just remarkable haven't coach to two time NBA MVP what I stress to my players is the things they have in common, and that's their character and their commitment to the game and their ability to make other players better. Both of those two guys have that more than any other athletes I've been around, and I think that they also have great basketball brains. Great brains general great brains for the game, and we recruit to that here. What I like to think we do is help our players get better. Just as I watched Tim get incredibly better and stuff gets incredibly better. They kept doing that throughout their careers. And that's what we try to get our players to do one more thing about Steph. When he first started the NBA, he clearly was not the physical shape that he's in right now. What do you remember about the early days with Steph? Well, first of all Don Nelson said from the beginning that he thought he'd be a superstar. And so I give credit for you know, seeing down the road on that stuff. Did you know struggle a little bit physically when he began in the NBA the story, I tell gases remember going into Madison Square Garden the first time and Nelly. I think either didn't start him or pulled him out of the game real quickly barely played him in that game. And it was almost like he was and stuff. Resolve to be good or something. I made it hard on him. And there's probably another better Nellie could've done to present that type of challenge to stuff and see the way that he attacked it every day. You know, Steph was incredible in his determination belief in himself and his drive to get better. I think that's the thing that separates the guys who end up being the best is they're drive to get better. And just feel really fortunate to being around him. It was a lot of fun. Speaking of Nellie. Did you see a press conference recently? It looks like my man or man is living the very best life in Maui. Did you get a look at him? And have you spoken to him recently? Yeah. Yeah. I have spoken to them. And last time I spoke to him was before I saw that interview. And if I'd seen the interview, and I told Nellie it looked like he joined him on a motorcycle gang. Since that interview. I've told people that I'm not on the Nellie coaching tree. I'm one of the roots on the coach and we'd. Russell Turner, my guest. I gotta be honest Russ. Now, you know, I'm a couch show, and you may or may not know, but I brought the family out the last two years to watch you guys grow up against my alma mater UCSB. Let's just say y'all have not been very hospitable to the Rome family. I mean, come on. Russell put you on the show. You punch us in the face. That's not. That's not the way I've thought of it. I mean, I do appreciate everything you do it for me. And you know, we'll give you some luxury seats next time. You come over here. Just let me know. Yeah. You guys always do that. That's not a concern. Russell Turner the head coach UCI they're twenty five and five thirteen and one in conference. They've got a game at Cal poly on Thursday night. Russ nice to have you back on, you know, I'm watching closely, and it's always good to talk some ball with you. Very man. I appreciate it. Jim keep doing your thing. UT Russ Russell Turner UC Irvine head coach. You know, if you're in Irvine, and again, I was out there to watch my gauchos beat up on them. And it didn't happen. They play hard. They're deep. They're talented athletic day, play extremely hard. And you've got head coach. He's done an amazing job there in amazing job. And you have to hope that he has a quality of life and says like all the others. You know what I can? I like what I have. I like my family being here. I like the school. I like my team. I like what we're accomplishing. Maybe I don't have to leave. Maybe I don't have to go someplace else to live the kind of life and have the kind of career I want you got hope for the best if you're UC Irvine and you put a priority on basketball. You can do whatever you can't keep this guy's long as you can..

"But man, they have been playing some bad people this year for thirteen. They just lost twenty three point on Wednesday night at home UC riverside. So rough year for the Mustang. Yeah. For sure, and you know, you'll get UC Santa Barbara really bad shooting performance from two point land in that game against Cal State Fullerton. So maybe UC Santa Barbara abouts spac team here this weekend kind of playing against that outlier, but you mentioned UC Irvine being the top dog here, and we talked about this with regards to both the Big Sky and the sun belt. It's kinda tough to get back to playing basketball after you play that top team, and there is a trend with UC Irvine UC Irvine opponents that is something that people wanna pay attention to. Teams are twenty five and thirty eight eighty s last sixty three after playing UC Irvine in their last game. This makes a lot of sense to me is here line much more physical and those teams in this league. You know, they're committing quite thousands because they're so aggressive on defense. They're consistently. They've consistently been the team to beat in this league now for a few years, and I didn't even farther back with this with this angle because you know, if they're about ten years ago there was not. So to me, it doesn't matter. You know, what they did ten years ago? UC Irvine rats here has been very team for twenty five and thirty ATS the team that just played UC Irvine and the next game. So if you're looking in the big west aback team, I would be a little bit hesitant. If that team just plate UCR by last game. All right. So let's look at some regression candidates here. We'll look at the summit league, by the way on Monday's edition. Obeying? The book radio is we keep going through our conference by conference breakdowns only eight teams I believe in that league. So that one won't take us too much time. But we get into the regression candidates here. Let's start with a negative regression candidate. And in fact, this is a team that has already dropped seven in a row, and you expect things to get worse. Yeah. Fordham's defense. I I think this Pacific -ly a look where defensively Fordham looks like they're pretty good team there. One hundred ten ineffective field goal percentage defense. According to Ken palm one hundred fifteen according to Bart for Vic. And I know that that Adam is given has reference Bart toward Vic and some of the videos over on YouTube for bang the book, and I have to tell you, you know, I think that Barkhor organics work is pretty great as well. You know, I everybody knows about Ken palm tour Vic has a great website as well..
"uc irvine" Discussed on Bleeding Green Nation
"But those core principles stay the same. Same thing with defense. You know? Russian a passer still important tackling still important getting off block still important stopping the run still important might look totally different than it looked in nineteen ninety nine but a lot of the core principles. Stay the same. He's he's certainly been an improved player for us. He had some rough spots early in the year. And he was also helping out in some positions that. You know? I mean, it was it was tough. I thought out there safety because of some of the situations that we had but he's come up. He's come up big at the right time. I think his his journey this year sort of sort of. Mimic. The defense is whole he's playing his best football late in the season. He's overcome some things he's he's put some some some performances behind him. He's tackled much better. I think all the things that you can say about resolve you could probably just put the defense right next to him on those you have more. Grocer size technical Stickney. Severe cerebral. But us onto the band. Yeah. He's smart player. He's got some spider sons to him. You know, he's he's one of those guys that just can can feel served plays. He's really good. You saw screen pass. That's nothing. New go back to the Dallas game. He made a play on his own read that was like incredibly. I mean, literally like there was some spider sense there to know who had the ball. You know, he's he's really good at these studies. Really, well and his technique is good. He's he's tough match-up for some guards. Sometimes. You know? And and again, he's he's playing good football late in the season for us. And we've needed. Spent six weeks at UC Irvine. Yeah. Yeah. Sure, did we'll see UC Irvine have very often. Philadelphia. What's that? Oh, you do. Story with what you're seeing from Chicago's these I will they have an excellent defense as as you know, the reputation precedes him and coach Fangio is as good a defensive coordinator is as there isn't a league. So it'll be a great challenge. And I know our guys are excited about it. We're looking forward to the game. Attention to detail, obviously in his scheme is you know, he does a lot of things different things will utilize personnel. Mrs mix things up does a good job week a week of of. Not not having tendencies or breaking tendencies. So he's as good as is. No. We haven't talked this week. Now, I told him. Thank so. Yeah. The. Has pointed his Greer woodwork. Well, I think he just a good group. And we're getting good protection of front and guys doing real good job being where they're supposed to be when they're supposed to be there getting open. He's still in the ball accurately making place. So. Back to running back by committee after AB Joshua while they're doubts back when the what are the benefits of each kind of approach. And would were you most comfortable helps keep everybody fresh involved. Everybody's gonna roll in a game and can contribute to the outcome of the game. And that keeps everybody's energy level high certainly not only just on game day. But throughout the course of the week in practice in on that they're going to have a role in the game and the ability contribute. Individually. What do they do with more on? Yeah, morale. Yeah. They'll do. They'll move them around in. You'd be on the ride on the left to be inside. Do a lot of different things with been obviously, he's an elite pass rusher, which we faced a few of those guys this year, but he certainly has excellent. Around a lot are the the offensive line. Kenyan. Well, I don't know if there's a key for the office line. But you gotta know where he is. You know, and that's a credit to debate. Because he knows that by moving them around that that makes it more challenging for for offenses. Evolve. I think certainly from just a maturity standpoint away he preaches each and every day each and every practice the way takes care of himself. And certainly, you know from a competitive maturity standpoint, he understands the moment, and and what it takes in. And you know, when he's gotta ramp it up, but when he's gotta make place to help us win. And you know, he he like, you know, we're talking about new earlier..

Best from NFL training camps 2018
"Next afternoons on ESPN LA Rams on the field for the first day of training camp. Two thousand eighteen here at UC Irvine and teams are opening up. All across the country were the Rams Kirk. They play a game. They have first preseason game two weeks from today in Baltimore against the ravens. So we're going to be into it fast. This is the first day at camp, but I mean, you better get up to speed pretty quickly because there's going to be games before you know it. Yeah, I and I have a joint practice next week in Baltimore Baltimore's will, but it's it's fast. Actually, two weeks from today is the first game for the Rams one week from today is actually the first preseason game between the bears and ravens. So if football is the on your appetite, trust me, you're going to get a lot of it, but it's a, it's here in this coming fast right now is practice over already. Are they there on the left side team? Jon? Okay, everybody. I remember that part of practice. It looks real chill and call. Yeah, real call. I read something today about the special teams unit that the for the first time in. NFL history. All four of the Rams specialists made the Pro Bowl. Jake mcquaid the long snappers. Johnny Hecker. Yes, Greg's arline Ferro Cooper, all four of them made the Pro Bowl, and and you know, you and I talk about it every week in and out, but that that was, you know, Todd girlies this Jared goff's, that Aaron Donald was doing what he was doing an offense and defense and Wade Phillips in Sean McVay fact of the matter is that group of guys that special teams group bones fossil in the job that he does with those guys. It gave them such a massive advantage weakened in week at they're blocking punts. They were. They were blocking extra points, everything about them, blocking field goals on special teams was above the line by a mile. Yeah. I mean, that was what to me gave. I think, Jared, also the confidence to that Sean McVeigh had to instill in him that, hey, it's okay, we, we got one of the best punters in the game. He's gonna, pin them deep and hopefully our defense and get a stop and think. That's something that the Rams can rely on this year even more so because of the way that they're special teams played a year ago that even this year now you can kind of play this a certain situations, hey, we can go take a shot deep down the field here because sometimes you gotta sit plays up. You gotta go attack in certain areas. You know, third and twelve or second and twelve fellows. We've got to go take a shot here and if we don't get the shot, if we don't get it or you know, we don't convert on third now it's okay to punt. I, it's okay. I know one of my guys always talked to former quarterback and says, Kirk, remember, always every series must intimate kick right? Always whether it's a punt a field goal point after everything has to end with the kick. So it's okay to have those punts. But when you have a guy like Hecker, who can actually in a game in which the Rams can now play that type of game in terms of, hey, this is going to be a field position game. We're not going to score a lot of points. You're going to need a guy like Hecker and he showed that last year in some situations where he's been lights out inside the twenty. You name it that that's his game and and Greg's airline, assuming he's healthy, right? I mean everything inside of fifty yards automatic. Well, to me, he's the one that won the Dallas cowboy game. Yeah. When. Few goes, you know, they couldn't really convert and get in the end zone as much as they want it. But you talk about a guy who was on and really that was the game that really that caught everyone's attention like, okay, this thing looks for real..
