"Band. Hey CBS News time now 7 15 we're talking sports a good day for Stanford both the men's and women's basketball team won their game Stanford women beating Florida Gulf Coast 93 to 69 while the Stanford men beat Florida state 70 to 60. College football action today San Jose state will be on the field against Hawaii at 1230 this afternoon. Stanford will face off with BYU at 8 and Cal suffered a Los yesterday against UCLA 35 to 28. The warriors beat the jazz one 29 to one 18 and with some Major League Baseball news right now, here's case CBS the Steven Langford. Baseball's Hall of Fame ballot was released earlier this week and it included 14 newcomers, two of which are former San Francisco Giants. One is Carlos Beltran who had a brief stint in San Francisco after being traded from the New York mets in 2011 during the last year of his playing career, he won a championship with the Houston Astros in 2017, though that season was mired in controversy. He retired from playing after that season and was hired by the mets as a manager a year later, only to be fired without managing a game after he was the only Astros player mentioned by name in a report regarding the team's illicit use of electronics during their cheating scandal on the way to their 2017 World Series run. So Beltran will be an interesting case study as he is the first Astros player eligible for the Hall of Fame since that scandal in 2017. Another player listed is former giants pitcher Matt Cain, a three time all star, and of course a two time World Series champion with the Giants. He was a fan favorite in San Francisco. The NFL announced that 32 nominees for the 9th Daniel art Rooney sportsmanship award, which recognizes players around the league who exemplify outstanding sportsmanship on the field. The San Francisco forty-niners nominee is fullback Kyle you check, who has been with the team since signing in 2017. At the sports desk, Stephen Langford K CBS

Thompson-Robinson rallies No. 17 UCLA past Cal, 35-28

"The UCLA bruins used the late second quarter touchdown to build momentum as they held off California, 35, 28. Ruins quarterback Dorian Thompson Robinson was 21 of 30 for a 189 yards and a touchdown. Dealing with these guys all year. And being able to be a real brotherhood and lean on each other at times when things get harder or adversity hits. So again, I'm just so thankful to be able to play with these guys again and enjoy this win for sure. Meanwhile, the golden bears lost 7 of their final 8 games. In the loss, Cal's Jack plummer was 24 of 34 passing for 294 yards and four touchdowns. Ryan leong, Berkeley

Packed Black Friday sports schedule

"AP sports I'm Tom Miriam. On Black Friday, the NBA and NHL were as busy as the shopping malls. 14 NBA games and 13 on the ice were played the day after both leagues were off for Thanksgiving. The Celtics added to their league leading record by beating searching Sacramento as Jason Tatum scored 30 with help from the Boston bench. I think when we might have been down for the end of the half of ten, he knows because of those guys came in and just changed the momentum. The bucks kept pace by beating the Cavaliers thanks largely to a 35, ten third quarter in which Bobby port has played a key role. Felt good for us overall as a basketball team, because it felt like we was playing books, basketball, for a chance. Victories also for the Lakers heat suns, warriors, nuggets, grizzly sixers pacers, rockets, thunder hornets, and the trailblazers in overtime over the Knicks. NHL, the bruins became the first team to win its first 12 home games in the season, as they beat the hurricanes three to two in overtime on David pasternak's gold. Big win for us, obviously, and coming from behind, you know, after Thanksgiving, the game is never easy, so it's good with. The devil's after having their 13 game win streak snap bounced back with a three one win in Buffalo. Other winners, the capitals penguins islanders red wings, Maple Leafs Canadians kraken jets, senators kings and lightning, with Braden points scoring too early goals. I think both teams were into it right away. It was nice to get a couple goals for us early. Pretty good jump on the game. I thought it was a fun game. World Cup soccer, the United States finished in a scoreless tie with England as coach Greg berhalter's young team had the better scoring chances. Overall, pleased with the performance of the group, most importantly, the belief of the group, because that never wavered. The U.S. now must be to ran on Tuesday to advance to the knockout round. Plenty of college action on Black Friday, football winners included four ranked teams tulane, Florida state UCLA and Texas, and basketball top ranked North Carolina lost a wire with state.

By lost kids, who think they'll be popular or are they will stand out or they will solve other problems that they have growing up is difficult. Adolescence has always been difficult.

Exposing the Beliefs of the Left

"Army Horowitz you went to the University of California at Los Angeles, UCLA, you stood in the middle of campus, and why did you ask? First of all, it's a PragerU exclusive. I should point out. Good, thank you. So, okay, why do I do what I do? Obviously to help clarify things. That's the main point. And the main clarification I want to make is I want to make liberals understand that the left does not hold the same values that they do. They think they do, right? If you ask people who are liberals, well, do the left believe in open borders. They'll go, of course they don't believe that. Does the left believe in that structure of capitalism? They look at me and they go, no, that's all right wing talking points. If I ask them, does the left believe that 5 year olds should be allowed to medically transition through hormones and surgery, they would again look at me and say, nobody believes that. You're just creating a straw man, a boogeyman. So the videos I do are to prove that that's exactly what the left believes.

"ucla" Discussed on CBS Sports Eye On College Basketball Podcast

"Record this on Wednesday morning, there was unfortunately very tragic news that came out on Tuesday, and that is the passing of Jalen hill, who played with UCLA from 2018 to 2021. He had been missing for a couple of months. I like kind of parents take up the rest of the story here, but his mother actually announced his family announced on Tuesday word had come in and that he had died. We do not have a reason for his passing perish. Dead at the age of 22, according to his family, went missing and Costa Rica, and like you said, the family hasn't released any details. But for whatever it's worth, it is widely known that Jalen struggled with depression and anxiety. These are his words, not mine. Actually, you know, played 14 games in that final four season, a couple seasons ago, and then stepped away from the team to focus on his mental health and ultimately, quote unquote, retired from basketball at a very young age. And so, you know, we'll wait for an official cause of death, but obviously any time you lose somebody so young and who by all accounts was just an absolute, you know, absolutely incredibly impressive young man. I didn't know Jalen hill, but the people I know who know him really had a high opinion of him. Like to men love them. And so yes, there's this news of this started to trickle out, I guess, on Tuesday night and then was confirmed by UCLA early Wednesday. Yeah, it's just heartbreaking. You know, every once in a while, we'll get one of these stories where somebody we talked about wrote about. And watched, you know, you just wake up one day and it's like dead at the age of 20 in this case too, but 27, 29, young, too young. And it's always obviously a sad thing and this one seems to be especially sad. Yeah, Mick cronin tweeted late on Tuesday night. The news Jalen hills passing is heartbreaking. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family at this time. Jalen was a warm hearted young man with a great smile who has left us far too soon. Certainly, we'll echo that sentiment and want to genuinely send our best and only our best to all who knew and loved Jalen. I imagine something like this for players on that roster who knew him and communicated with them. They are not going through an easy time right now. That coaching staff, this is something that weighs heavily on anyone. And as they, as they're back in school, going to classes, reconvening as a team, official practices, we're here in closing in on late September, official practices will start before the month is out. Something like this can certainly hang very heavily over a team. Now, let alone the people who knew and loved Jalen best. So it just so happened as us, the timing of us recording the CCLA episode literally came the day after the announcement of his passing a very, very tragic and again, we send our we send our best to him and the UCLA community and I imagine I would imagine I don't know this to be fact, but he wore number 24. I would think that 24 will be will be stitched onto the uniforms for the entirety of the season, then the program will honor him that way for the 22 23 campaign.

Heather Mac Donald: MCAT Scores for Blacks Is Being Judged Differently

"White MCAT score has to be in the top 1%. At least, if not better than that. But if you're black, they don't even want to look at your MCATs because there are virtually no. I mean, there's few individual blacks that are, of course, are scoring high, but on average there is what's known as a whole standard deviation of difference. And that's a fancy statistical term that basically means a really big, really significant difference between the average black MCAT score and the average wide MCAT score. Again, blacks are being admitted with scores that would be automatically disqualifying if submitted by whites. And then what happens is, is quite predictably, according to mismatch theory, which is propounded by Richard sander at the UCLA law school and others, they don't do as well. If you're admitted to an academic environment where you are not competitively qualified, you're not going to learn as much. The teaching is going to be pitched at a higher level of skills than you have. So they do poorly in medical schools. So what's the next step? Get rid of grades. There's a essential test that is given at the second year of medical school called step one of the medical licensing exam. Will this year they abolished all grades in the step one's test? And replaced it with past fail. Why? Because blacks and Hispanics have much poor scores on step one. And so we're saying to ourselves, we just want to destroy the yard sticks. You know, it's like it's like spinal tap. You know, we're just going to change and destroy the yardsticks rather than acknowledge that there are underlying skills gap differences that need to be closed. And it's too late to do it in medical school, and you are putting people's lives at risk. Not

Why a Prominent UCLA Professor Is Calling It Quits

"Joseph Manson is a anthropologist at UCLA, the University of California at Los Angeles. And he's 62 years old. And really without any particular incident being responsible for it, he's decided to give up his tenure and take early retirement. Now, this is remarkable in itself. It's very rare for ten yard academics to do this. It's one thing if they're in failing health or they want to do something else with their life. None of that is at issue here. This is a professor dedicated successful. He's got students who really like him. And yet he's decided to get out of there. And he has given an account of why he's doing this. And the account can be summarized as I don't want to be the last antelope eaten by the leopards. In other words, what he's saying is that my department at UCLA has been thoroughly corrupted from within. And other scholars are feeling and have felt the bite of the leopard, the leopard here is wokeness, the woke ideology. And the leopard hasn't come for me, but it will. It has to. Why? Because it comes for anyone who believes in independent thought, anyone who thinks for themselves anyone who can test the propositions of woke ideology, and even if you agree with some or even most of them, you might disagree with a few, and that will be enough of a pretext for you to then be targeted, bullied, and your reputation destroyed.

The Conference Impact of the USC and UCLA Move

"So this is happening, obviously everybody sees what's happening, which is a trend toward two big football conferences. And my first question is, if it's only too conferences, are these even conferences? I mean, it's the AFC and NFC ain't it. It's more like that, than a conference, right? Yeah. And even beyond that sort of level, right? So I guess part of what's going to have to happen with this is we're going to see the whitling away of all these schools that have been honestly not earning their keep in these major conferences, right? So the big 12 after Texas at Oklahoma left, right? All basically mid major football programs. I mean, one of those schools is one of rose bowl in the last decade, but my bad. I forgot. I hear you on that. I forgot I forgot. Sorry. I hear you on that side by that. But you look at what's left, right? There's nobody left to anchor a conference. Like you think about when they started the big 12, the expectation was that conference would be anchored by Texas, Oklahoma and Nebraska, right? Like that was the guess. Really, it was Texas and Nebraska because Oklahoma had been down at that point. All of them are gone right now. The PAC 12 now no longer, they really only had one what I would call true anchor school, which was USC. Now they don't have one of those. Like you look at the pack 12 now. That's a lot of little bitty stadiums, man. That's a lot of stadiums that people don't go to and you just lost the best recruiting territory for your whole conference. Like, that's my thing when I look at the big 12. Big 12 ain't got players no more. Even if they have schools, there are no players. Right. Well, I mean, the thing that I think about with the PEX 12, there's sort of shocking to me, is that everybody is saying that about USC and UCLA, and obviously it's right. Like you do not want to lose LA that recruiting playground, that media market. It's an irreparable blow. You probably can not recover from it. But man, we really are just saying that Arizona Arizona state. I mean, Phoenix is a top ten top 11, 12 market. Nobody cares? I mean, seriously?

"Check. And in fact, Josiah has used that clip in some of his tweets over the years, which I think is pretty cool. They'd be able to use your own dad in a tweet that people will immediately recognize and get and that's just awesome that they can have that connection. Oh, amazing. So as we've already mentioned a little bit, there's a really strong family connection here to UCLA basketball. Not only did his dad play there, but his half brother Chris did as well, how does Josiah fit into this whole family UCLA hierarchy? Yeah, I get the sense that as I kind of alluded to, I think there's a little bit of sadness in him that he wasn't able to kind of uphold that legacy because his dad was born John win slash national championship team in 1975. He went on to become the first ever winner of the John R wooden award, which is just a mind-blowing thing. And then his half brother Chris was a freshman on the 1995 national championship team, which was the last title that UCLA's one in basketball. So that's obviously a huge, huge deal for the family that they were both able to be such a huge part of UCLA's rich basketball legacy. And then along comes Josiah, who, as we've already kind of well outlined, was not quite to that caliber of player. I've always really operated behind the shadows and kind of been in the shadow of my dad and my older brother Chris. I think he averaged 1.3 points per day and 7.3 minutes per game. So he did rarely play, I think he made only two starts this whole career, but certainly was a very good student and I should mention, I think he won the academic award first, either best GPA or smartest guy on the team, best GPA, and three of his 5 years. So that speaks to just how bright of a person he is and how seriously he took his academics. All right, well, it sounds like his foray into the show business side of basketball was a bit of a rocky road for Josiah Johnson early on. So can you walk us through his big success with Comedy Central and how that sort of fell apart? Yeah, so he had a lot of years of working as a producer doing sports, highlight packages for like Fox and NFL network and different places. So let me watch games, cut highlights, get those things out as quick as possible. You're up against the clock, let a game hit zeros. They want your shots even your highlight and you're working people like Richard. Right along the way, he always had this idea for this show they kind of based on him and a couple of his friends at UCLA called the legends of Chamberlain heights, which is about some bench warmers who are legends in their own minds. Which a lot of these let's face that everybody, even a benchwarmer at a high G one was a pretty good high school player. So at some point they probably had a big ego, right? So, you know, he kind of blended all that together for.

"Now taken back by UCLA with 14 seconds to go. Johnson nice cut and the nice pass by Thompson. Well, when you're on a team and there are guys that work here. That is the closing seconds of a UCLA basketball game from 2002, and the Johnson the announcers just mentioned is bruins benchwarmer Josiah Johnson making, well, a pretty rare cameo in garbage time. That's about the closest Johnson ever came to being a basketball star. But now, two decades later, that same college bench warmer is a bona FIDE NBA star on Twitter. The viral legend on Twitter, the king of NBA Twitter, the king of Twitter and retweeted by King James to name a few some of the biggest names. Today, we're joined by Ben bolt of the LA times to look at how Johnson went from afterthought on the UCLA bench to NBA Twitter heavyweight, how he managed to carve his own path in a family of basketball stars in the fear that motivates him to keep going. From wondering, I'm Tiffany osinski. It's Wednesday, June 8th, and this is the lead. Though, but I appreciate you for the love. I mean, I'm in a discussion in conversation, but I wouldn't say I'm the king. I'm a very humble human. Ben bulge welcome to the lead. Thank you so much for having me. I'm very excited to have you. Now, you recently wrote a long profile on Josiah Johnson for the LA times. So first of all, how did the story land on your radar? Well, you know, I'm on Twitter like everybody else and Josiah is the son of Marcus Johnson, a 5 time all star UCLA legend who played on John Wooden's last national championship team. I've known Marcus and the family for many years. So I was a natural for me to follow Josiah who also went to UA and I would just keep seeing these tweets that would make me crack up. So at some point, I was like, wow, this guy has really carved out a niche for himself. And he went to UCLA and that's my beat, so I was like, it's just a natural for me to do his story. Levin, as you said, you know the family and you got to speak with Josiah Johnson for this piece that you wrote. But before we dive into the story itself, you know, how Johnson became this Twitter sensation. Can you just give us a sense of what he does? Take us through what a Josiah Johnson viral tweet looks like. Yeah, I mean, in game two, the other day he had a pretty funny tweet about draymond's reaction after not getting a second technical foul and he posted a photo of Snoop Dogg, classmates hands together being thankful that he was acquitted, which was pretty funny. I'm pretty par for the course for his style of humor. He draws a lot of culture references. He'll throw in movies from John singleton and the Wayans family, which he knows personally. There's a reason why I'm using this clip with that clip or whatever it may be. This movie had a profound impact on my life, whether it's, you know, Friday with DJ pooh and ice cube and just the work they did on that or John singleton movies or, you know, the Wayans family, which, you know, went to school with Damon junior and junior high. And it's very authentic. And I think that's what really resonates with a lot of people is that it's things that interest Josiah and by extension, that interest his audience in a really genuine way. I think when you see me, you're getting me, that's the one thing everybody was like, oh, you got a team, you got a staff. It's like anything that's coming from my account is coming from me. I spoke with that. TNT executive for the story. And he gave me a great quality said, you know, basically it's not just, oh, you know, LeBron has this amazing duck and he makes some joke about it. He connects with his followers in real time in a way that expresses what they're feeling about that moment. And he does it. It has like an immediacy to it. He roused these things off so quickly. He gave me some tips about the best way to do it is often going into a commercial break because that's when people are looking at their phones. So there's definitely a method to his madness that he's kind of put together over the years. Can you paint us a picture of how he works? What's his setup? Yeah, so he's a man of many talents. He's kind of all over the city. In fact, one day I followed him, he was started in the morning in Santa Monica for one of his NBA podcasts and then I think he went to Gilbert arenas home to do another podcast. Welcome back to no chill with Gilbert arenas. I'm Josiah Johnson, the NBA Conference Finals are set after two of the most wackiest boringest game 7s. I think I've ever seen two hot packs of ass mid, whatever you want to call it, straight boom boom. And then I met him back at his home in Woodland hills that evening for the opener of the Eastern Conference Finals. And one of his setups is in a spare bedroom, he's got this really comfy velvety couch. He's got his bare feet propped up on the Ottoman. He's just like you and me watching the game super relaxed, super chill. And guys, iPhone his hand, he's got his laptop and his lap with 15 windows open. So I'm kind of introverted and quiet, but that's why I love social because you can really be anywhere when you're doing it, and everybody thinks, are you in a office? Are you doing this? Are you doing that? I'm living at the house most of the time. Like just hanging out with family. He's got two young kids, and I didn't get to see that scene, but his wife told me, you know, they're often just coming in on top of him while he's working, but they're really cute kids too. One of them popped in the door and said hello with some pajamas on and it was just, it was just super cute. So it's great that he's able to do that and work from home. All right, well then we wanted to get a better sense of how just decided Johnson has carved out a pretty unusual niche for himself in the basketball world. And in your story, you wrote about how it started when he was pretty young and was helping his dad learn to become a broadcaster. So what's the story there? Yeah, there's some really kind of cool mental images that you can kind of conjure one of the ones that really stood out to me was on Josiah told me that he would sit in the family living room with his dad who was early in his broadcasting career and basically help him get reps and get comfortable in that setting. So what they would do is they would watch a game, put a cassette tape in the family stereo and Josiah would pretend to be chicane. The legendary Lakers broadcaster doing the play by play. Watch this game when we you know help me prep and I'm having like, I get to be chick hard or whoever it is, you know, doing the play by play and you kind of jump in and do his stuff. While Marcus, the color commentary, as he's gone on to do Walt becoming an Emmy Award winning broadcaster. So yeah, he basically helped prep his dad for startling in his next career. And then Marcus is also a very accomplished actor and probably most notably was in white men can't jump with Wesley Snipes and Woody Harrelson as one of the street ballers who got duped by those actors and had a very memorable scene there. He goes two class to play bass. And you all day, taking me right to the clinic, baby. Come on, man. Again..

Dr. Hamlin Emory Shares the Story of a Unique Patient

"Folks talking to doctor Hamlin Emory, the book is hard to swallow from superstition to psychiatry. You were just telling us about some patient. In my early months as a psychiatric resident, I met a young man who had a master's degree in mass and his wife described him. Experiencing intermittent psychotic episodes in which he would become enraged and he was married and even had a child and had been treated in the clinic at UCLA as a paranoid schizophrenic. But it was strange and I thought that a person with schizophrenia would be able to marry and have a child and the relationship with his wife was reasonable, except when he had these episodic outbursts. And it sounded as if he might have some kind of epilepsy. So I referred him to the neurologist on the faculty and sure enough the EEG was abnormal and showed.

"More. Okay, let me everybody. Everybody is raked in the top 20 and adjusted off in the turns out everybody is right to the top buddy. Adjusted offensive efficiency defense efficiency. Simply an amazing, dude. This went to 6 to 8 to 17 teams. It started, we went for 5, and now I think we're up to, let's let me count them. One, two, three, four, 5, 6, 7. You lose 8, there's 8, 8 is the correct answer. I had it at 5, 5 minutes ago. Who haven't I named? Yes, someone in the chat is saying this should be a win for me and I'll watch you. That is correct. This is a loss. Docket Reddit, docket, that's a lost for GP. Click acceptable. Hey, I've been there before and I will be again just so we're all clear on this. I'll try and legitimately guess it. So it's another one. But you said, auburn, a top 20 in both. Last team would be, I think we've named him all. No, stop. You finish this podcast. Let's forget the Jersey Mike's mid show. Well, you got a Jersey Mike's deal coming just so everyone's more. I don't know. I don't think it's anyone in the big east, and I don't think it would be anyone else in the SEC, no PAC 12. You know what? I don't think I don't feel like Texas tech would be, but that's gonna be my blind guess 'cause it's played well, Texas tech. I think we've named our. Here's what I got. Auburn Houston duke, Arizona, UCLA Kentucky Baylor Gonzaga. Yes. There's not another team? I mean, who could say for sure at this point, you know? Right. Do I look like, do I look like Ken palm to you? Absolutely not. I wish I looked like Kim palm or ASAP Rocky. That's quite the comparison there. Just to be clear, I'd rather look like ASAP Rocky. ASAP Rocky, congratulations to ASAP Rocky having a baby with Rihanna. First, congratulations on having premarital sex with Rihanna, but beyond that. You know, it's pre marital. They're not married. Okay. Premarital. Anything before marriage is technically considered premarital. So congrats to ASAP Rocky on having premarital sex with Rihanna. Congrats on the baby. I think that's the most beautiful rapper in the world. ASAP Rocky. Unless you go with Megan Thee Stallion. We went from two teams to 5 teams to 8 teams to 17 teams in the top 20 and offensive and defensive efficiency to ASAP Rocky. That is why you come here. The first college sports podcast to ever be on YouTube and on video. Yep. What else do what else do you want from us there? Okay, real quick. There was actual news that came out of this. So Arizona wins, and as UCLA's walking off the floor, Mac ETN, who is a freshman who's not playing this season, was reportedly arrested and cited for assault because there were Arizona fans were trash talking UCLA as I walked off the floor. And then it sure looks like he spit on a fan or at the fans. And so UCLA has yet to release a statement about this, or at least acknowledging the player as we record this Friday morning. I would say that Mick cronin would suspend this player from playing. He's not playing this season. But, you know, it actually is a news event. I got a push alert on CBS sports, if you're not subscribed to the CBS sports app on your phone. Feel free to do so because you get plenty of news and video and podcast alerts. But, you know, you just can't. You can't have this, you know, if Texas tech was able to be on its best behavior after everything surrounding that game, a UCL player walking off the floor can handle the Arizona razzing that went on. I don't know what was said. It might have been something completely unacceptable, but you can not have players spitting on fans. So I didn't want to simply ignore it and pretend like it didn't happen. It's not a major major headline. But, you know, you can't have it. There's video out there that was passed around on social media where you can clearly see what happens and it's not flattering to ETN or UCLA. But I assume UCLA will address this further on Friday or yeah, they released a statement just saying they're aware of an incident and blah, blah, blah, blah, blah. It's a major headline in the sense that you would tell you where I saw it first. DMZ? Like, yeah. I saw it in our slack room when I woke up this morning, so I wanted to share it. But yeah, there you go. So, yeah. Yeah, I didn't see it last night, or if I did, I forgot. But I saw it. TMZ, this morning. I wake up every morning and go through TMZ to see if anybody died or anybody did anything crazy. And there was UCLA basketball for spitting Arizona fans. I know you said it appears to have spent he spent I know a spitter when I see one. Have you ever spit on someone? I can say no, 100%. I mean, probably when I was a kid, there you go. I mean, not lately. And it's been on anybody. That's like one of the all time like, you do that to someone, it's go time. It's time to fight on sight. Someone spits at you, dude? Yeah. Like, among the all time insulting things you can ever do to someone, yeah, absolutely. Would you fight somebody you know would clearly whip you if they spit on you? Of course not. You gotta take to assess the situation. I think you have to set the situation. That's the situation, yeah. Yeah. Like, yeah, I never I never understood people who said, you gotta fight over that. Like, oh, he took your girl, you gotta fight over that. Oh, he spit on you. You know, I just take her. Yeah. Well, yeah. I think you have to size it up. You know? Like if one guy takes your girl, maybe we have to fight. Another guy takes a girl? Maybe I just have to lose her. You know? Trying to get beat up. My girl ain't beat up on the same.

"The bruins were ranked second in the pre season 8 people. Largely because they went on an incredible run in the instantly tournament that moved them into the top 20 at kin palm then they bring everybody back and roll 5 star freshman. For me, you know, ranking UCLA that high made a lot of sense. In fact, the initial night of the championship game top 25 and one actually had UCLA number one. I think gu zaga just kept in rolling people so we went with the zags at number one. But UCLA I always thought would be really good. But then 6 game of the season they could blasted by Gonzaga. I mean, just overwhelmed completely run off the court. They end up on a long COVID pause lasted nearly four weeks. Come back, lose to Oregon, and it was at that point that people started because I see this every day because of the top 25 and why. Folks are in my mentions every morning. And it's like, oh, so now do you realize you overrated UCLA? Now do you realize that you were wrong about UCLA? And here we are now, there are 16 games into this season. They haven't played as many as some because of their COVID pause. But the loss to Oregon was overtime with no fans. Put fans in that building, they probably win the game. Get one more stop, make one more shot, they win that game. My point is, you see, I could easily be sitting here right now, 15 and one with a loan loss to Gonzaga, victories over Villanova and Arizona. It's a good basketball team. You know, I sit in the studio last night with Adam Zucker, of course, while he's named Montgomery. And Wally, it's always fun watching games with Wally because like, you know, he's a real basketball player, and he doesn't get caught up in the numbers as much as he really just focuses on what he sees. And he's like, dude, this UCLA team, they're like legitimately good national championship good. You know, they got experience, they got real players. While they sort of starting point with every team is, do you have the players to win the national championship? If you don't shut up, it starts with the players. Do you have the players to do it? And he'll watch something sometimes that a rank, you know, second in the country, and he'll be like, hey, okay. I don't care what the resume says. I'm just telling you they're not good enough. That team doesn't have the players to go win the whole thing. And with UCLA, he was like, they got the player. They got the coach, but they've got the players. And I think some of the UCLA skeptics after that performance last night probably have to take a step back a little bit and recognize that, sure, Gonzaga is the favorite to win the national title. Auburn is ranked number one, but if you're putting together a list of teams that can go win 6 games, UCLA's probably needs to be on that list somewhere. Definitely needs to be on that list. If you watch the game, Arizona shooting was aside some of which is just randomness and bad luck for the wildcats. Just saw a national title contender. It's his pure and simple as that. I think UCLA has plenty of room for improvement still. And again, some of this was shooting luck, but Arizona came in. Arizona came into the game. It's where 59 points. And it went into that game as one of the best scoring offenses in the country. Averaged 88.7 second in the country going into the game, was first in assists per game, 21.3. First in rebound rank, more than 43 game. First in point differential beating opponents by an average of 24, heading into UCLA. And it was just it was non competitive there. So yeah, big big ups to UCLA and getting this win, getting to 14 and two. Next up for the bruins Thursday at home against Cal. My thoughts and prayers with the bears because that's not going to go well for you. And then they will play Saturday at home against Stanford before the returning game has proved to mention. Next Thursday, it will be at Arizona, and that will be one of the best if not the best games of next week. Man, I'm looking forward to sleeping through that one. I'm sure you are. I'll have it covered for the morning after podcast, don't worry. I will make a note next Thursday to try to sleep on the plane. I try to work on the plane typically, but I'll make a note next Thursday I'm gonna sleep on the plane so that I can stay up for UCLA Arizona because that seems important. I know you want to stay informed and entertained, but I also know.

"West Coast overtime thriller final score Oregon. These four number three UCLA 81 Mick Cronus bruins, they closed this ten point favorite still 5 game winning streak snapped by an Oregon team that is 58th at Ken palm 78th in the net, so that's a quad three lost dead leg. Where were you when you see a took its first quad three loss of the season? I'm assuming asleep. No, I was in my living room sitting in the dark watching on TV, man, lights up. Locked in. I was locked in. I was locked in until Gonzaga wrapped that puppy up last night, so I'm gonna sleep. Long day for me. Don't get back to back to don't fall asleep till three in the morning on Wednesday night. Got a 6 30 wake up call. Fly back home, do a radio show. See the kids, wife. How's that pretty early last night? Understandable completely. Is you're up a lot the two nights before. I got us covered here. I was locked in. We had a lot. A lot of West Coast flavor across the board on Thursday. And then, yeah, actually a lot of late night tips between games like this and even stuff like on CBS Sports Network where San Francisco just wipe the floor with LMU and kind of reinforce the idea that the WCC really does have a top four. As for this game, we're starting to get a little bit of a clearer picture. Maybe maybe a little bit on UCLA. As we speak this morning, and we're we've crossed the halfway point threshold of the regular season. UCLA sits at 25th in the net. Now the results based metrics because UCLA doesn't have a high inventory of games, it just has played fewer games than most other teams in power conferences because of its lengthy COVID pause. It still ranks well there. KPI, Kevin Paul index, which only evaluates teams based off of what's happened this season. It's all everything's in the rearview mirror. There is no predictive quality to it whatsoever. It says UCLA's number 11 team in the country based off what it's done and then strength the record, which is another very good empirical analysis tool that has results based has UCLA 9th. The predictive ones have started to fade a little bit on the bruins here. 14, 15 or 16 and Ken palm sagarin and BPI as of this morning. I still think we need more. It was good on the ducks. Dana Altman gets his 700th win. The ducks had 6 players score in double figures, so led by Jacob young had 23. So that's a bit more like it with Oregon. You know, it's not a stunner that Oregon wins this game. Oregon was a team we expected to be a major player in the PAC 12 hasn't been that to this point. But maybe this is going to be different. 84 81 and over time, UCLA was fortunate to get it to the bonus session to begin with because in fact, I think it was young who had that brutal pass underneath his own basket that allowed UCLA to cut the margin from 6 all the way down to zero in the final 32 33 seconds of regulation. So even getting it to the freebie session there for UCLA with no fans and attendance, which I think has something of an impact overall. But good on Oregon. UCLA is going to have a chance, obviously, the way the pact 12 goes. You've got the travel partner, so organ state will be next on Saturday and I think the winds probably more about organ. But we have had a little bit of the PAC 12s top three two of the three at least. Stumble in a bit. Arizona had no issues with Colorado on Thursday night. But earlier in the week, USC dropped from the ranks of the unbeaten. It actually kind of vomited on its sleeve for the first half of that game against Oregon state on Thursday before getting it together and winning by ten, but we've had UCLA and USC, which is separated themselves from the rest of the conference. Now they've taken on some losses, maybe Oregon can make it a bit interesting there. We'll have to wait and see maybe chalk this up a little bit to the fact that UCLA also hadn't played in almost a month. This was its second game. And it takes a competitive lost nonetheless. I think it was a third game back. Third game back from a nearly four week COVID pause. You mentioned the lack of fans. I believe the number I saw was a 119 relatives of coaches and players were allowed inside Pauly. That's it. And mit cronin was asked about it afterwards. And he said, it doesn't help, but I don't want to make excuses. But it's a real thing. Like having home court advantage in college basketball is a real thing. Watch Harvard play a home game. Tell me that doesn't matter. And watch Gonzaga play a home game. It matters. And when you suddenly don't have that, whatever gap might be there between you and your opponent is a smaller gap. You mentioned it's not a stunner that Oregon beat UCLA. And it's not in a broad sense. It's Oregon, it's Dana Altman. They're back to back PAC 12 outright chance. But this organ team was a ten point underdog..

"On campus for Madison Baldwin, but he bald man, but I'm sure he'll be joining us shortly. Number one first number two in the final four and semifinal game. One team obviously advanced that was Gonzaga and lost 22 a very, very talented team. What is your first thought after watching this Gonzaga team absolutely dominate dominate every aspect of the game against UCLA? My first reaction is wow. They were so impressive from start to finish Seth. And, you know, the most efficient offense in the nation. And you know, that says one thing, but I don't think people realize how impactful their transition game is. And they don't just run after turnovers after miss shots. Even if you make a basket, they're right up at you quickly and it puts so much pressure on your transition defense that if you're not getting back and getting matched up with the way that they're able to move the basketball and find open guys, you're an absolute trouble. Seth, we felt that game was over really in the first 5 to 7 minutes of that game. They have it all. And you look at a night like tonight Seth, I mean, one of my big keys was drew Timmy. Drew Timmy dropped 37 on then number 5 Texas had 22 in the first half and we talked about how important it was for miles Johnson to kind of hold this ground, not go for drew Timmy wasn't even the feature star in this game Andrew Neymar absolutely dictated tempo, whether it be in the half court coming out ball screening situations in transition to the rim. This was a dominant performance by the worthy number one team in the country. Yeah, to me, you know, to me, you guys transition was one of the most important parts of this basketball game. And your defense of transition is connected to your ball security and part of shot selection is just not made miss shot. Rebound drought and transition. That's election is if you get to the rim and you're playing against a team with great yeah. Like Chad hulk, you get a paint touch. You draw the defender and then you make a pass and maybe credit before a game. He said block shots create scoring opportunities for these have the ability to run out of them. And that's exactly what happened. It's exactly what happened. They drove it. It was the shot was blocked all of a sudden now because I was out transition. Yeah. And it's just adventure to make a place. The other thing is defense transition milestones. He was always behind to play like always behind. He bet you got out number the ball. You've got to corral the ball slow down the basketball. You've got to learn to get matched up. And UCLA did not do a very good job. Containing the ball, then building a wall and then getting matched up. So that was really just that by product. I was really disappointed in the decision making to bob move and the people movement of UCLA. Yes. Let's give Gonzaga's defense. Oh, yeah. Those are don't give a role now. Yes. So let's get Andrew our his credit. And for all the naysayers are people that concerned about that group. To.

"ucla" Discussed on The Lead

"I wanted to spend a minute looking at a couple big trends that have been going on in college basketball and to kind of check in on where things stand. First, the decline of so called blue blood programs was a big storyline last season. Obviously, UCLA is one of those blue blood programs and they're doing just fine this year. But is that a trend that we're seeing continue so far this season? No, I think that trend has reversed itself. The main cause of that and we're really we're talking about duke and Kentucky to a lesser extent in North Carolina, but certainly that was the case is that teams that relied heavily on freshmen were impacted the most by the pandemic because when you have players that are that young, every second counts. You know, obviously practicing in the gym working out with your teammates getting in your sets, getting everybody connected, developing chemistry, having team meals together, going over the coach's house for barbecues. All of that happens in the summer and the early fall for everybody and it's especially important for teams that rely heavily on freshman. Duke in Kentucky did not have that option last year. You know, this year, Kentucky and duke are both highly ranked. They actually played each other in Madison Square Garden and opening night. I was there in the garden. They're both really, really good teams. They have really good freshmen duke in particular has really a national play of the year that I think in Paulo bank Caro, who's a 6 ten freshman forward, do everything dribbler, ball handler, shooter, everything. So yeah, I think we are looking at a little bit more of a normal season in terms of that narrative. In the past you've also talked about how this new transfer portal. You know, where guys can transfer and not have to sit out a year has really shaken things up. That's actually how Johnny Tuesday and got from Kentucky to UCLA and was able to play last season. So what impact are we seeing that rule have so far this season? This is by far the oldest college basketball has ever been. First of all, with respect to the transfer portal and coaches have been saying this now that these guys can transfer and play right away. Unless you are a really top tier freshman, a coach is going to be more inclined to bring in a transfer because if nothing else, he's older. So what a lot of coaches have told me is I'm not bringing in a freshman unless he's ready to contribute right away. That's not a guarantee that he's going to get minutes, but he's got to be good enough to play as a freshman because there's 2000 players that are in the transfer portal. And by the way, they are only allowed to transfer and play right away once. So if they want to transfer again, they have to sit out a year as was the case traditionally in the past. So that's even more of an attraction to bring in a transfer because they're going to be less inclined to leave. And then on top of that, you have all of these super seniors who came back. So ate like Villanova, they have two super seniors and Colin Gillespie and Jermaine Samuels. So I'm looking at all these team senior senior super senior sophomore juniors, senior junior. I'm not used to that. And it's really cool. And you could really tell in the way that they're playing. And there's just a physical toughness about the way they play. There's a cohesiveness about the way they play. So it's really interesting talking to these coaches as they are now adapting and in fact, I think embracing and in a lot of ways liking this new era where you're coaching older guys. Now you got to put teams together on the fly, but generally speaking, I think the coach is kind of like coaching older players and frankly, I like watching them. Well, finally, Seth coming back to Johnny too saying, and the UCLA bruins. They have a big test and a final four rematch against Gonzaga on Tuesday. What will you be watching for in that game? Well, the good news is for UCLA Jalen suggs is not playing. He's in the NBA and making a lot of money. So God bless him for that. First of all, with Gonzaga, because I mentioned about their win over Texas, you know, go Zack has this incredibly exciting freshman that everybody knows about and jet home gram. 7 foot one unicorn. He weighs, you know, what a book. 70s, soaking wet, and he can do a lot of things. Well, he was pretty much a nod factor. He only had two points, one made field goal in that win over Texas. And so I'm interested to see what kind of a role he plays moving forward because clearly he's going to have a major major impact on that team. And then as far as UCLA is concerned, I mean, look, Mike cronen has got a lot of guys. And you could say, hey, that's a high class problem to have, but it's still kind of a problem. I mean, coaches will tell you the ideal size of a rotation is maybe 7 or 8 guys, if nobody gets injured. And he's got a lot more than that. So just watching UCLA kind of work through that, but they're an old, physically tough team, drew Timmy is an early consensus favorite for national player of the year, had 37 points against Texas. So it's just gonna be a lot of fun. And unlike that other sport, teams and college basketball don't get eliminated from national championship contention in game three. You can lose a game early and still play your way into the national championship and it would not surprise me if on Monday night in New Orleans the last night of the season, those two teams UCLA and Gonzaga once more are locking horns to see who gets to hoist the big trophy.

"Really wanted to play and he smiled as he said. He wanted to play but the adrenaline was pumping. And then maybe the best decision of my career. I didn't let him fly. And they lost to USC, which hurt their chances to get into the NCA tournament. He came back for their first game against Oregon state in the PAC 12 conference term. It lost that game as well. And literally barely made the tournament. I mean, they UCLA and Michigan state were the last teams to be called on the selection show. And I know, because I was sitting at the desk for that show in the first four. And so and actually surprised me that they were that low on the C chart. So UCLA was a lot closer than anybody I think quite realized to not being invited. If krona knew how close they were, he may have led to zank power through against USC, but the reality of it is the only way for a badly sprained ankle to heal is to rest it for many, many weeks. And that clearly wasn't an option. So they had to do their best with him practicing on a very very limited basis. And then Johnny told me that he had to keep his ankle elevated all the time while he was in the NCAA tournament bubble where I'd lay on the bed, my back on the bed. My legs and my ink would be up on the wall. And I'd have the game ready, ice machine, running, then I'd sleep like that. He was literally sleeping with his foot on a wall. Wow. To keep the ankle elevated. So besides his ankle hurting his sleep couldn't have been great. Well, despite all of that, Johan had this pretty incredible run through the tournament. Seth, what stood out to you from his performance? He was just a scoring machine. Straight away three is good. They go underneath the screen. Can't do that with him. He's on fire right now. Against Michigan, they score 51 points as a team and zhuang had 28. Looking for Jose. Wagner's an excellent defender he's had his hands full though. That's a two for Johnny Jose. Man, he's hitting tough shots. He had 29 in the final four against Gonzaga. And what I really liked him is in overtime, we all of course remember the Jalen suggs shot that banked home and gave Gonzaga the win, but the possession before that, UCLA was down two. And Jose was the only person who touched the ball on that suggestion. He dribbled up the court.

"And with all that hype doesn't often happen this way, but the game actually exceeded the hype or Campbell wide open on the weak side. Zhang with a tough turnaround jumper UCLA has the lead. Went into overtime UCLA one. And UCLA will pick up. A win they will really save meaning Villanova in overtime. They are an incredibly mature and deep tough team. You know, Mick Ron's teams in Cincinnati were always very physically strong, physically tough, mentally tough. Not necessarily super talented, particularly at the offensive end. So for him to bring that mentality, he's still getting it in place, but for him to bring that mentality to UCLA and now coach a level of athlete and skill level that he didn't have in Cincinnati. That's why there as good as they are. It's a long way to go, but they're the number two team of the country for a reason. All right, well, Seth, you recently wrote a profile about Johnny zhuzeng for the athletic kind of focusing on what makes him unusual and how he has emerged as a star for the bruins. So let's rewind here a little bit. As you spoke with him and his family for the story, what did you learn about what he was like as a kid? Well, he was different. I learned that he comes from a really impressive family aside from the things that he is achieving. I come from a household both sides of the family. Pretty smart. So academics is a big part, you know, especially on my dad's side his mom was a teacher and he has an older brother Christian who played for Harvard, graduated for Harvard. You've heard of that place. And he also has a younger sister, Lauren, who's a freshman at Syracuse, who's already producing and singing music that is being produced and published on Spotify and available and she seems well on her way. His father is a very impressive entrepreneur who started a couple of medical tech companies and his mother's wealth adviser for JB Morgan. So besides that, they're really not doing anything. And so he came in this environment of high achievement, high work ethic, high accountability. There was always high expectations. So it was kind of like, you know, especially my mom, it was like, you know, you have to strive for excellence. So in the classroom, whatever. And then my dad, you know, always pushed us. Whatever Johnny did as a kid, he was only interested in things that were difficult. In fact, early on, basketball actually came too easily to him, so he wasn't into practicing and trying to get better. He just wanted to play and that was it. So one of the things that he and his sister Lauren did with their young was put together Legos. Now, of course, there are various levels of complexity and there was a time when he and his sister were sitting on the steps, trying to put something together and she being as bright as she was and is, thought it was too complicated and gave up. And he sat there for a couple hours until he finished it. He actually liked the fact that it was difficult. And so the correlation of basketball is when he became older and he went to more competitive AAU teams in high schools and programs aside from what he was already playing in. And he was going up against guys who are better than him older than him bigger than him. That's when basketball got difficult and that's when he really got interested and formed this work ethic that sustains him and propels him to this day. Well, Seth, you also wrote about how Johnny was influenced by a very well-known movie that was mocked by some celebrated by others, but that was certainly very influential when it came out years ago. So can you tell us about that? Well, this is something that he did as a young man basically as a middle schooler where he started to get serious about basketball. And he saw the movie the secret, which also became a bestselling book, which talks about the concept of the law of attraction. I actually read the book as a result of my reporting on the story because I remembered how popular it was and it is. The idea is that we're all basically creating these frequencies. And these frequencies are the result of our thoughts. And the frequencies produce events. So if you think that good things are going to happen, that helps make them happen. And one of the ways that he wanted to make good things happen was to create a vision board where he put specific goals and pictures on his closet door where he could see them. So I start my story off with his father maxi walking into Johnny's room when he's in 8th grade and looking at the closet and seeing these things that his son had written down. Every morning he wakes up and sees that laundry list of NBA final four. You know, all this stuff is on the wall. So he visually projects his goals and really has the work ethic to go after him. So if he's getting up at 5 in the morning to go work out and try to get better at basketball, he's reminding himself of why he is doing all that. And they included goals like NBA All-Star Game, final four, make the NBA. And again, this is all completely self motivated and it occurred to maxi that his son wasn't just talking about basketball and playing it as something to do for fun that he was very serious about it, very driven and very purposeful and that he set himself a vision and he's well on his way to executing it. All right, so this highly motivated super focused kid became really good at basketball. But despite growing up as a UCLA fan, he actually ended up deciding to play college basketball at Kentucky. So how did things go for him there? According to Johnny things went great at Kentucky, but by any conventional standard, it didn't go that well. He averaged about 12 minutes a game. Kentucky had a pretty good shooting guard named tyrese Maxie who needed the ball in his hands a lot. So the only way for Johnny to get minutes would be to play in space opposite maxi. That was awkward for him, awkward for the team and there were other guys who were well equipped to do that. But he shot the ball pretty well during SEC play. And every day that Johnny Jose walked into practice, he was going up against NBA players. And he was being coached by somebody who really holds his players accountable and drives him hard. Regardless of how will you play in games or how many minutes you play at Kentucky, you are going to get better by virtue of being there. And again, when you say to him, do you have any regrets? You know, his answer was absolutely not. You need those learning, teaching experiences where you're really facing a lot of adversity and challenge to learn about yourself and to grow, because if you're not going to quit, then you're going to figure out a way to make things work. Going through adversity builds character, and that is important for me for my personal development and my professional development. Not many 1819 20 year olds. Frankly, not many 51 year olds see the world in that way, but he does. And I think it's why he's going to be a success no matter what he does. So after that year at Kentucky, he ultimately decided to return home, transferred to UCLA. Did he more or less integrate himself with the UCLA team right away? Yeah, well the first thing he did was he made it apparent that he could help them win and help them score. And so that's one thing that mikron had said to me. We struggled to score my first year. We needed his offense. And it was evident right away from the first day of practice. But he's coming into a situation where he's the new guy. And they have some older players who are more established. So it's not like he's gonna go in there, barking orders and acting like he owns a place. So as I watched him play, there was a little bit of inconsistency there in terms of both his execution and his role as both he was trying to figure out his best role for UCLA and everyone else at UCLA was trying to figure that out. And then, on New Year's Eve, their best player, they're starting center Chris Smith, who has knee and was lost for the season. And he was a big time scorer for them in the front court. And so as they got into PAC 12 play, it became much more imperative for UCLA that John Zhang becomes more of an alpha male in terms of looking for his shot. That's when he really took off. Well, as you said, jus really started to find his groove as the season went on. But before he went on his high profile tear in the NCA tournament and I think a lot of people might not realize this, he actually got a really nasty injury at about the worst possible time. Can you explain exactly what happened? So a couple of days before UCLA's final regular season game against USC. Really turned his ankle very badly in practice. And obviously it was a big game against USC. He really,.

"Did it. The challenge is showing that it could actually work that way. And i don't think it's enough to say to to critique the way i understand upsets or at least the way you're saying it it's it's enough to say that that you know well government also bad incentives that it's not a bad thing to point out and it's often true and i think it would be naive to say but they'll be overcome by public-spiritedness And then you know at that point you want to kind of case study. Ideally or how in some situations perhaps some societies government on it others. The the private sector's done it and see. Maybe which case might be more attractive being able to judge it easily. You know there's a famous example of the economics of lighthouse. It's quite complicated but for long times. Economists use the lighthouse as an example of something that could not be provided privately. Because the incentives weren't there you know they would say well. What are you going to turn off the light for the people who don't pay and what about the ones who have paid they'll be on the ocean for them and that was an article by paul samuelson saying that the lighthouse is a public. Good that has to be right. Publicly coast came along and said well private lighthouses exist awkward for the theory that they can't exist they actually do exist. And the overcome the free rider problem and the problem of turning off the light not by creating associations and do's and ways of enforcing nanometre remember the well one of my favorite economic articles articles economics though. And i think later by the way so people will come along with trying to link to this critique coaches analysis at least the history of the lighthouse. That was actually provided. But i do think it's a great example of how the ivory tower if you're not careful you can essentially to use it inside joke. Assume a can opener and our side. free work. people tend to do that too. Oh the providence. I don't will solve that sometimes. It does sometimes. it doesn't often it does twi You know my view on this is that there's a presumption that mark incentives work. Well not always. They may not work in a particular situation but similarly i don't want to say we'll government never works well because they're all just a bunch of bureaucrats with no incentive sometimes inspired by their desire to be good public citizens. It's possible they can do a good job. I don't you never went to argue that. Say anything i'll just. I'll just leave it at that and let you respond. Yeah yeah and by the way on the lighthouse. One of the text books that i actually really light in houston a course when i taught postgraduate school with joe stiglitz as economics to the public sector on the cover his this big picture of a lighthouse and always just found that. So ironic Yeah so that was always coast had going for him. I just away. Ucla but coast. He was kind of an honorary. Ucla or a sense very much in the tradition at emphasis on transaction costs which part of these la tradition to a large extent. Yeah on his own damn sets elchin. All those people was. Let's look let's look at the reality. Let's look at what goes on. That gets back to dem as property rights with with indian tribes. And so on what go ahead i wanted to shift it and make sure we talk a little about her cipher for a. Yeah sure and i. And i'm going to try to get a sterile thomson before we're done cahokia one of the things that i enjoyed when steve globerman and i were writing. This piece was to look back at jack. Hirsh lifers work now. Jack first of all he was a fantastic person. I just really liked him. I really was delightful. Yeah yeah ju. I'm very not sweet. So sweet yeah yeah. I'm glad i'm glad you knew him. And so he wrote something for the rand. Corporation called disaster and recovery and it was when people were really worried. This is like late fifties early sixties. People were really worried about. We could have an all out nuclear war. What would things look like afterwards. And so of course. We don't have experienced other japan other than in japan which was localized. But he said okay. Let's look at other. Let's look at japan. Let's look at germany after all the bombing and so on and let's look at how quick recovery was and the bottom line to simplify a little is recovery was quick. It was amazing how cooperative forces came together and just started digging themselves. So i think He mentions i was. I'm not sure it's the dresden firebombing or the hamburg bombing a one of those were within a few days. Electricity was flowing again which was key in a modern society. And so jack. We have a chapter just on jack hirsh lifers work on that issue and you know again it was. It was really pathbreaking time. Yeah i think. I i can't help but think about it in our current world where we kind of shut down our economy. We didn't destroy it through bombing because of the pandemic we basically put it into deep freeze for awhile. Many many societies many countries economies have have done that s response to covert and. I think it's really important. And i don't remember i for talks about this report to remember. That.

"Tend to think of a work as an entitlement as a wage. As a question of justice the idea that economics teaches is not always true hundred percent of the time in any precision but the idea that part of what determines how much i earn is determined by how much i contribute really beautiful idea that unfortunately i think we usually forget because we see the the transaction as a very as transaction when in fact something much broader is taking place right. That's right and by the way. I think that's one reason it's very useful for people to be discussing the pay that really high level professional athletes get because everyone understands that everyone understands homes is going to get paid well because he's such a great quarterback and so you know. I think that's really that can help. People think through at their level will what am i doing what value on my creating and therefore what should i get and it'd be fair to the skeptics market system. What's amazing about sports. And the reason. I think economists enjoy sports. Maybe in particular way. The you're discussing is that this is a scorecard. We know who wins now. We may not. We may not easily know how much each person contributes and i think Our ucla economists wrote a really important does a really important work on that that phenomenon with just a question of team production right went when things done a team. It's often hard to ascribe the outcome to any one person. But of course a great football coach or great baseball general manager understands has some non easily quantified ways figuring who's contributing may not always be accurate. They the best they can. But th there's a score. There is some bottom line that that often a little more. Observable terms of statistics say a quarterback or or hitter in in baseball. That's not literally there in the workplace in the workplace you see Inputs you know how many hours people are in the office. Sometimes but you don't always know what they actually contribute. And that of course is is a challenge and thinking about how to organize a workforce but but sports is an example. Where you see that. The wages are pay is often determined by productivity right. And by the way i'm glad that kind of segues nicely into one of the major elchin dem sets contributions which was the theory of the firm. Yeah talking about yeah. They wrote a an article. In the american review. And this one was listed as one of the top twenty of the of a century of articles by some economists including kenneth arrow and others and the idea was that the firm is team production. That's what it's about. And so but as you said you have trouble often. Inputs monitoring the productivity of inputs so the firms that tend to do well are going to be ones that do that well and again. That's where it's really important to have what's called the residual claimant an entity that has the right to the revenues. That are left after all outlays have been paid. That's the residual the prophet essentially. And so if you have residual claim that residual claim it has very good incentives to monitor the workers figure out who's shirking. They use the word shirking a few times in that article. I believe and try to figure out who's contributing the most are not the most but who's contributing at least what he or she has paid and that that whole idea was was further advancement along the lines that ronald coast started nine hundred thirty seven with his article. The nature of the firm and so this was another major step. This was in nineteen seventy two. I believe so thirty five years later. They kind of advanced the ball on that. That's the reason why. I think it's such an important paper lotteries but you know. I think a lot of times quote for simplicity. Economists assumed that say productivity is observed. And it's almost never observed. It's observed in so-called piecework. You're say picking the walnuts or fruit or vegetables in over certain time period. You have a very good measure of how much work a worker does. And whether they're worth it or not in fact typically with piece work you pay them a certain amount and they monitor themselves if they can't earn enough in an hour to make it worthwhile quit and you still. There is still a challenge of what to set the wage at. You can still mess that up the piecework rate. But most of life is not like that. It's not where your individual productivity is not observable. You're working in a team You could argue that. Actually that academic life is a little bit unseemly that there are some. There's collaboration that takes place but it's you know when you teach in the classroom. There's not much teamwork. It's it's it's it's up to you now assessing the quality of teachings incredibly hard in many ways to do a badly. Don't want to suggest that it's easy. But the more interesting cases. I think are where a team of people works on a serious project that requires multiple people's involvement in sports team. Again is an obvious example. It's very it's often very hard to figure out what any one player contributes to the team or anyone colleague contributes to the project and thinking about that subtly. It's not enough just to point out. Well it's hard to do. It's not enough to point out that Firms do a better will make more profit than wants. Don't there were. There are other insights that article remember now last but but they.

Our topic for today is david's new book the essential. Ucla school of economics. Co-authored with stephen. Globerman i wanna thank plan to onyx providing. Today's guest with the blackwell fifty two twenty headset. David welcome back to econ talk. Nice russ so. This is a very short very well done introduction to the ucla school of economics. It's focused mainly but not exclusively on what i think of as the two best economists not to win a nobel prize arm allchin herald debts Two of my favorite economists. And i feel. They received insufficient attention here their work on e. contacts. I'm really glad we're here to talk about them as well as ucla. Generally i want to start with an insight. That you quote of of allergens. Are you say his work was guided by the incite quote. You tell me the rules. And i'll tell you what outcomes to expect and i think that's an incredibly deep simple way of capturing a key part of the economic thinking what does that. What does that mean to you that for us. And by the way armand started with that idea not in those words exactly but with that idea of my first class i ever had with him at ucla. And the graduate program in september. Nineteen seventy two. He said if you look at incentives if you look at the the way incentives are structured. You can understand a lot of behavior that otherwise is mysterious. So i remember my first day of class. He said now when you go to the ucla bookstore to buy the books. You're going to be in a long line and you're going to be really angry about that but you shouldn't be angry. You should be happy because it means that economics works. Economics explains behavior. The people working there are on on our just a standard wage. They don't have a strong incentive but more important there's no real ownership. This is essentially a cooperative. And so no one. No one's what he later. Introduces us to called the residual claimant. No one gets this big benefit if they do better and so. I wasn't happy when i heard that i thought. Wow this guy's real this guy from the get-go is trying to tell us how important economics is how important incentives are and then of course later. How property rights are explaining behavior. He was He was a provocateur. I assume in the classroom. I never had a class with him. My understanding from former students of his like yourself is that he loves saying things that would shock people and and give answers to puzzles of everyday life that that he thought were were True and surprising. Yes he would come to class pretty much every day and say why do we see this and of course. Oh and one of the things. He laid out the first day classes. If you don't put up your hand. I don't know you. And so take a chance and your whole capital value is at risk cure. And so i got that already kind of got that. But i really got it. And so we put up our hands answer. And he'd say no no no and not give any reasons we go back to our carols and say now. Why was he right. Why were we wrong. And every once in a while we'd figure out that one of us was right and we go back to class the next day and say professor allchin we think blah blah blah blah. So oh yeah i know. Why don't you admit it. Well i wanted to see how confident you were of your answer. That reminds him star for my graduate. School days. When gary becker asked a question and someone you asked this does this go. This variable go up or down and someone said and he said. Do you want to flip that coin one more time. So you know it's it gets a little scary in there. I actually wants answered up. And he said are you sure and i said down and he said i get it the first time because i was panic those were was he intimidating. Yeah he was intimidating. he was actually. I mean what. I figured out later. He's kind of a shy man. And by the way i think his shyness. I'm no going a little field here but it relates to the introduction. I think his shyness in some part of the reason he didn't win the nobel prize he was shy and humble and so he never really pushed himself wasn't he. Yeah he wasn't tough promoter at all and so but yeah but yeah. He was intimidated. So he wrote a textbook with william allen. The first edition was called exchange and production university. No i think the first one was called exchange with production by overseas economics. Nineteen sixty four and exchange in production came later. Yeah yeah that's interesting. Because i don't take that's what it says in the introduction to the current one but maybe i misunderstood but the current edition which is edited by jerry jordan Who i think was a student of allergens is called universal economics. And i'm just wanna put a plug in for it. You can get it for eight.

Yeah okay so a little club. Soda sodas not pardon on soda man and then a fresh basil leaves if desired. Then you porn large punchbowl right. A large pitcher porn wine and juice stirred combine refrigerate four hours before serving at in soda serve in chilled wine glasses. And if you like something on the rim if you like a little salt or little shoot whatever you want to do that. And i'm gonna tell you this man. I tried this before. I've had to to this kind of add a little just a little vodka to rather just a little bit. Low splash splash. So you you still got the fruit taste and the wine taste but you get a little kick to ninety point. Take one of those white clause or one of those. Yeah and yeah a little lime in there if you want to you drink the week. The cranberry red wine punch got math. I'm going to well a team that you don't like necessarily because they're in the same city as your school. Ucla off to a great start better than we are today. Look fast the little bit of that. Hype that chip. Kelly was getting for them. Preseason like this team to watch out for. They look like they might just fit the bill. They're only an eleven point favorite this weekend at home against fresno state now last time. These two teams faced off for instance. They took it to him a little bit. Got a victory but that was a different. Ucla team. I think that ucla at home covers the eleven there. I'm starting to believe to buy some of that hike that they got shot down there in the in. What is it. The is it the south the pack. Twelve these south north or south which team. Ucla they got shot to be the team. That represents the pac twelve out of the south wants. Come once you get to the conference championship game. But i think that they absolutely crews this weekend there too fast too much too much offense for fresno state so you like. Ucla yeah that's a ucla's really really good. And why the hell am. I having trouble. Finding my pick ohio state we have who they plant. Tulsa there they knew. Now why am why. can't i find it. Twenty four and a half. that's the most recent spread. Yes and i do. Why am i going with so many big ones this week. You like the big ones. Yeah clip it and who doesn't and you know what. What time is it game on. Dude i wrote it down. And i'm looking for to validate and make sure they're spread heavily in early game. And i can't find the damn thang. It's on here. i'm pulling it up at this very moment. They're they're they're hurt me because i was adamant about this thirty game. All right okay perfect. So here's the here's the reason why they were. They were embarrassed last week defensively. They were embarrassed last week. Defensively had a chance to win. Quarterback threw it away. I love bounceback games. That are well coached and stroud good player. Lil learn from the picky through last week. The defense was boat raced and run all over by team speed and organ. It's going to change this week. This is one of those like in the middle of the third quarter. Start to think. Are we putting up a statistic. Numbers right won't be close. I'm big on a lot of spreads this week in week. Three for college football. I got ohio state at twenty where we are now. Twenty four and a half four and a half. I think this is a four touchdown game minimum. I like a lot of big spreads this week from some big teams. And i know that's not normal for me but i'm taking i'll take ohio state over tulsa and they are at the big house and that's not gonna vote well after what happened last week. Lose an organ. They will not lose two in a row especially with a national championship hopes. John clayton up next. That's our specs. Pick of the week specs online dot com mc and. I are about to win it. It's going to be a good gambling week. it's going to be a good for downs next..

"ucla" Discussed on The Audible with Feldman And Mandel

"His always by bruce feldman on sunday morning of week one week one is not entirely complete yet but we wanted to go ahead and delve into Three days worth of action. But in particular saturday and bruce you had a a i would say you know even better than front row seat for one of the more Eventful results from saturday. You were the sideline reporter for lsu ucla. You've been telling us for months that. Ucla was gonna be this much improved physical team. I was very skeptical. I think most people were skeptical though. That's exactly what they went and did to. Lsu what was it like. There are at the rose bowl. Stu my ears are still ringing from last night It was a really fun atmosphere. I know a lot of people. Don't last week notice. There's so many empty seats at the rose bowl when they played hawaii and they kind of just kind of smirk at at the vibe around the rose bowl and the place was Was basically packed and there was a bunch of lsu fans but it wasn't. I won't point. I thought it was gonna be fifty. Fifty was probably seventy five. Twenty five or so Ucla but it was really good energy in the building. I thought from our meetings. We went to practice on friday. Just a lotta confidence about what they they feel like. They have become at ucla and chip. Kelly told us we gotta remember the for context when he first got there they had sixty three players go through spring. They had one hundred fifteen this year and the the first year at fifty seven scholarship guys may be seven. Scholarship offense alignment now. They're well over eighty scholarship guys. It's just it built to this. And so i think like you. Lsu it was really interesting. Tommy moffitt is lsu strength coach. And he's been at lsu for a long time but before that he was at tennessee. He's been around some big big time programs and he said he was while they are a really good-looking football team watching them. More mob said they look like an sec. Team right he goes. Yeah they really do look. Sec team and i don't wanna say they look better than lsu a tunnel long really athletic guys to but they look like an sec team. They run the football as well. If not better than a lot as he seems are going run it. And i just think you know when you look at zach chardonnay the two best players on the field last night charbonnet. In case sean. When those guys were all american caliber players. But i thought what we knew. Chip kelly was gonna have wrinkles for lsu and similar to what he's had you know he'll put him in for you. Know a lot of games who sought are actually in the first ella ella ucla usc game. I didn't his first year. They did a lot of stuff that just. Us had no and so you know what we saw. Last night was a lot of wide zone. Run game but it was instead of the down blocks. There's polars coming at guys. And so it's a lot of pressure on the outside. It puts so many basically secondary guys have made. All these one on one tackles and that's a lot ask of db's early on in the game. I thought lsu did a did a pretty good job with it. But i think there was just so much pressure as you said. It was a hot night in there. lsu was the one that got banged up lsu had at least two. If not three offense lineman positions. It was either important austin dallas. Who's their most experienced offensive line. He was out of the game. So the right tackle. Spot the left. Tackle cam wire. He got banged up so he was out of their Guards were rotating in and they struggled with the pressure that ucla's defense really was hitting them with and it's it's interesting just because the whole narrative run ucla seems to be flipped Pretty quick now because it wasn't that long ago everybody hated jury as narrow as the defensive coordinator here now last year they were actually pretty good on defense and to me. That was the more surprising thing last night than what happened with the ucla. Offense like i didn't think Lsu was like you know. that was kind of what. I expected to happen. When i didn't expect to happen was lsu's offense with the exception of bhutto and in particular. The run game was so bottled up. That to me was the big surprise. Now look john emery. Who's the probably the most talented running the act. They found out right before the game. He was not going to be able to play So that was. I think was a blow in all says i mentioned the offensive line had all sorts of issues both injury and just performance wise but really really Fun night in the coliseum Shoe but just to be there and see. I'm sorry. yeah thank you really fun nights to in the rose bowl. Not maybe not for lsu certainly but just to be at ucla this this fan base. I think they really woke up and came to life and i thought look at credit to ucla administration-wise. I thought they did a really good job of generating a lot of enthusiasm atmosphere in the building. It was just so much different than it's been. I think they're onto something. I forgot how fun it is to see chip kelly. When he's winning. Because i feel like the first three years i mean first of all. Everybody made a big deal last week when they beat hawaii that was his first. Non conference wins since he's been there. Those first two years they got caught. They played oklahoma played. Cincinnati lost the fresno state was miserable. And i also just so. Everybody was wondering. Hey what happened to. The guy knew had that amazing offense at oregon but also just like his personality. He just he just kinda. I felt like he.
