"Casinos in general want to reward the bad players and punish the good players. Simply a casino wants to reward the players based on their value to the casino. And the value to the casino is not what players want to be rewarded on. So it's this bad news for the player. Yeah, sure. Will it change things a lot? I don't think so. The conditions of video poker is largely also determined by the promotions, the slot club, the mailers, those type of things. And that is not going to be handled by this acre software. So what the software will do is are they playing the game well today, not why is that player in the casino today? Because that's a question that won't be. No, but it is going to tell them what is a more accurate what is the average daily theoretical. So, you know, if you come in and play it minus half a percent, they'll say your average daily theoretical was this. And if somebody plays badly, they're average daily theoretical was -2.3%. And so you probably won't get a mailer and they will, whatever. Yes. And so I remember, I remember hearing, it must have been 15 or 20 years ago. And maybe this is, you know, this is second hand, but I heard back then that Mark yosef, who was the CEO of shuffle master and now, I believe, is teaching it UNLV, that he had the patent on this. So that it would be built into, you know, video poker machines. And I don't know why it's taken this long for it actually to come into being. But yeah, the technology has been around forever, and of course, the casinos want more accurate information on exactly what are you worth to as a customer. So like all things, all things changed. So when I heard about this, I was thinking about how this is the software for video poker is different than the software for blackjack, where from the casino's point of view, it's identify the good players so they can treat them appropriately. So I considered the cases like in jacks or better if you have 8th king ten four of hearts and on a black ten, the right play by far is the whole all four hearts ace king ten four. Even though 95% of players are just going to hold 1810. Now this is a rare hand. It isn't worth much. But this software will correctly say that you made the wrong play. But this rare hand is not doesn't mean much because it's rare and it's worth much. But in blackjack and situations such as doubling down for less, you're betting a $100, you're dealt a 8 four against a dealer two and you put a $5 bed out there. It's a double down. Now there's been several and you're making a bad play. Doubling a full double down on a 12 versus a two is an expensive plane. But in this case, it's not an expensive play because it's a $5 bet on where you normally betting a hundred. And if the casino registers that as a double down, that would be a benefit for the player because they will say this player doesn't have a clue. Now Arnold Snyder wrote about this in his recent book radical blackjack, there's been at least one guest.

She is a walking club. I know you did. You know, there's a video. It's interesting. There's a video on YouTube somewhere of her as like the student, the college student, you know, voice of the college student on Las Vegas television when she was at UNLV. Oh, God. I know. It's perfectly normal. I mean, she's on there talking to a couple of professors and then she talked, I think they talk about student loans for a while. And she's just, you know, your average, you know, Las Vegas college student. Yeah. That you found, you know, she found, you know, she found a lucrative gig being crazy. Yeah.

"Case. And I wrote about it at the time. I do Carolina game in the modern media landscape that when there had never been a scenario where one of the teams playing in the game was reduced to an afterthought. And that's exactly what happened in North Carolina in that spot. It was, we kind of got to invite you here, scoot on over 8 miles up the road, get your 40 minutes in, take the L head back home, appreciate you coming. Thanks so much. And because of that, I actually think it did, it really served UNC tremendously well. I also had detail in that column that night when they went like Hubert Davis, the previous game, I can't remember if it was clumps and I don't have the restaurant. Or maybe it was wake. They had won a game and then like the second Hubert Davis walked in the locker room. The next game was duke and it was like no time to celebrate duke prep starts right here right now. Right here right now because they had kicked their ass the previous time and all of that served Carolina well, kind of like sitting and hiding, you know, getting 3% of the media coverage leading up to that game. I think the fact that duke went through all of that going up to the game, it was basically as big of a media event that you could ever have that's not in the final four. It was incredible how much attention all the media that descended upon Durham, obviously they had like a huge college football Saturday tailgate feel, you know, the players had to talk about everyone, right? So I think that it actually serves duke well that they, it's still going to be bigger here at the final four, but that they went through those motions, I think it actually does serve them well. As for the result, it's interesting. I think in terms of the fans on each side of this, if you're a duke fan, you're way more stressed on this. Like Carolina, I get it. You don't want to lose to duke for the first time in the tournament on a final four stage. I understand that. And duke went over UNC on a certain level. It doesn't, it does not erase what happened at the end of the regular season. It just doesn't. But if duke could beat Carolina and then win the national championship, I mean, it's as much possible redemption as you could possibly ask for outside of like beating you and seeing in the ACC tournament, which just didn't happen, right? So I think if you're a fan of duke, you're understandably your anxiety levels are a bit higher. If your Carolina, they're still there, but man, GP. It just feels like it's a bit of a house money situation. And if I'm UNC, even though we got to go in, we got to execute. We got to upload duke duke's played amazingly well. Carolina has as well. And it has under its belt, the fact that the most recent time that these two teams played, we went into your house, and we absolutely trounced you. We kicked you out of your own gym. So I think the actual and I can't wait to see on Thursday and Friday. How much that result is downplayed by everyone, even though you can't downplay it. Like the players are gonna be like, that's a whole new game. You know, that was that, this is this. That was then this is now, I don't want to hear any of that. Carolina fans and those Carolina players know that they completely de pants duke in that game. And I think that does give them a little bit of an attitude. But I slightly give it to you because it has, you know, it's the one that gets to avenge the loss. They are one and one. They are one on one. The duke does have a win as well. But I think everything pertaining to the mind going into this in the minds, I think it's awesome. The biggest, I got to ask this on radio GP. Biggest national semifinal ever. Or I kind of now, I was too young, you were obviously, I think you were soft when we were college. Duke going against undefeated UNLV. The year after, that one now, as a youngin, I remember loving that UNLV team, but I was just, you know, I was 9 ten years old. That one feels like it's the only thing that's close. But to me, duke UNC first time ever coach K going out, this is the biggest national semi ever. Maybe duke UNLV is considered the biggest national semifinal because of the way it because of the result of it. Right. Not going into it. But because of the result of it, whereas this is one that's going into it feels like it's you and LV was undefeated. That's the only thing. So that did ratcheted up. We don't have an undefeated factor here. I went through a lot of the Carolina stuff on a previous podcast. So I won't bore you with every detail again, but after they lost a wake for us by 22. You know, they dropped to 12 and 6 overall. They had four losses by at least 17 points. They were down to 43rd at Ken pom. They lost a pit on February 16th, dropped to 49th at Ken palm. But since they lost awake, their 16 and three since they lost a pit on February 16th, their ten and two. Check this out. I don't know if I've ever taught you this, but once we get to the off season, things slow down. You can go to Bart torvik dot com and put a start date and end date and look at data from two defined moments in time. And so if you go to February 17th, 2022, the day after Carolina lost a pit and you run the data from this from that point.

"It was a deep ball down the right sideline. It was a perfect pass. It might have been the best ball. He's thrown this year, or maybe ever, and given that moment, you know, I think it probably would qualify as such. I thought a couple of things happened. There were a couple of plays that Michigan tried to run. I mean, we've been talking about nicobi dean for a while, but it was like nicobi dean knew what plays they were running. And he was blowing them up before they happened. And I think that was that man did some film props. I think that there was it was that. I also thought this was like 18. If you played UNLV in the UNLV heyday and they were shooting 70% from three because like if that's in Ben's throwing like that and some of those other things, they are really going to be hard to beat because they have three running backs and a couple of them are like basically receivers also. And I think it was a matchup problem. You know, it's interesting before the year when Eric Gilbert was going to transfer there from LSU and that was such a seem like a game changer talent. And then obviously he didn't play this season. But Bryce Bowers he comes from Northern California from your area and has been rock flowers. I think I'm thinking of you. From Napa. No, I think who's Bryce Bryce butler. I think the old USC receiver is like Bobby butler. Anyway. So rock Bowers comes in and he turned out to be a just a real matchup nightmare. He had a couple of big plays early, and I just thought, all right, well, Michigan be able to settle down and kind of push back. And they couldn't. It was just like the gap wide and honestly it felt similar to what we had three hours earlier where Cincinnati had one good drive to open the game and then they could do nothing. And I think the part that was that was like, you're watching that going, you know, Desmond Ritter, if he can't rise have an a game here, they have no shot. And there were a couple of opportunities. And if you can, like you said, if you talk yourself into thinking, Michigan can beat them. If you talk to yourself into thinking, he needed to play like a top ten pick for them to have any chance to win that game. And obviously it didn't go that way. Yeah. Look, since Cincinnati was in it longer with Alabama than Michigan was with Georgia, and even then, I think once Alabama separated it, it was ten three for a while once they got to 17 three shortly before halftime. I didn't like the bear cast chances. The Michigan Georgia game got out of hand almost immediately. And what I want to say is, I mean, first of all, any notion that the Alabama and the SEC championship exposed Georgia, I don't feel that way anymore. And this will be relevant obviously toward the national championship game. But that seemed a lot more like a bad night at the office now after the way they're in particular the way they're this was the defense that was so swarming and so dominant for 12 games that won't let you get in the end zone, which Michigan didn't do until almost the very end. This was that defense. Naked dean, quay walker, all those guys just flying around the field. You know, that's the Georgia we'd come to expect during the season. And so I don't it doesn't to me it doesn't like speak poorly of Michigan. I just think Georgia is that good. In Alabama, we were critical of the times during the season. I think that may have been a case of Georgia entered the season as more of a finished product. It's a more veteran team. Alabama lost a lot from the year before, but they seem to have gotten it together now. And in particular, I remember the LSU game in early November when they ran for 6 yards, and we were like, I just, I don't know, what's wrong with them? The Alabama, you expect them to be able to run the ball and they can't run the ball. Well, Brian Robinson went for 200. Against Cincinnati. So I know I know America is frustrated. They don't want to watch a rematch of the Georgia Alabama game, especially since the first one wasn't particularly close. But what's interesting is, despite the fact Alabama pretty much blew them off the field last time, Georgia is a two and a half point favorite for the second go around. I think and I could be a little off on this, but I think America collectively, I think they're more frustrated by the semifinal match up stinking than they are. I'm looking forward to the national title game. And I'd be looking forward to it no matter what, but I mean, you have two heavyweight teams, looking back, I think Michigan with how they are in terms of their so run heavy. And the reality is their quarterback is nowhere near Bryce young's level. And I think that's a problem for them. There was no go to receiver. And I just think that that's a bad matchup for them. I really think it is. I'm not saying that Alabama is going to light up Georgia again, but I think this is a really interesting I think this is an interesting national title game. Again, you have the whole thing about Kirby smarts never beaten his mentor this wasn't a particularly close game in the last time they played and so I think this is pretty compelling..

"Alone. Just let it stay. Like, once upon a time I made the case for Marvin Bagley being the number one pick in the draft. I never bring that up anymore. I don't turn that. I don't talk about that anymore. That's not something I bring up anymore. The only person I know who the only person I know who brings up stuff they were completely wrong about all the dime is clay Travis, about COVID. That's the only person I know who just keeps keep bringing it up, even though he's at like four people are gonna die. Yeah, I don't tend to bring up my wild misses and we were clearly the most security and self and we, you know, we let the listeners laugh along at our Edison. I got no problem. I didn't, to be honest, I played that. I didn't know. I played like the first 15 seconds early this morning because I was going to make myself look like an idiot because I don't care whatever. I didn't realize it was going to quickly steer into you hopping in that line with me. Yeah, yeah. Don't drag me down with you. I mean, I didn't fairness. I did take the over. I took the over on zero. You have cancer. So like if it was a trivia time, I got it right, but yeah, it's like I've been saying for nearly two years now I never seen one like this. And being totally serious, I did not expect this. I didn't expect breakthrough cases to be this big of a deal. I did not expect us. Although I left open the possibility for, but I didn't expect a variant to come in that is, what's the latest number? 70 times more contagious than it reproduces at 70 times the rate in the lungs. I don't think it's right. But it is much more contagious than any other variant we've ever had. Yeah. Here we are. Here we are. Quick background on just how all this came to be. Okay, so Ohio State as GP laid out, it's not going to go. It has too many positives and the new CLA took I mean Thursday was an absolute mess here. They were thinking about and trying to get the right a bunch of teams that were initially contacted about doing this. You know, I'll mention the teams that have been put out there publicly. VCU initially was like a super long shot. Super long shot. But then UNLV, which doesn't have a game this weekend, it's right there. Why not, right? Problem is you and elvi already has 31 games. So it actually applied to the NCAA for a waiver for a 32nd game regular season that just never wound up materializing or mattering because the decision was made to have, again, a single header, stand-alone game here. But UNLV was willing to be the team and if not, or it could have been northwestern, which lost its game this weekend against the Paul because de Paul is on COVID pause as well. And so we will not be having that. If UCLA had been able to play, then the question would have become, because the way this was going, it was almost like Carolina Kentucky might have tried to play each other either way, because Carolina from what I understand not happy about how long UCLA took to get word out that it wasn't playing. Carolina rightfully so needs to prep for an opponent. They're flying across the country like who the hell are we watching on video when we're prepping? So the weird thing with all that is that if Carolina Kentucky would have played each other anyway, UCLA would have played northwestern, I believe, because UNLV would not have been able to I don't think you and LV would have been approved for a 32nd game. It's already played. UCLA and non conference play this season. And siblings not letting you play 32nd game so you can play a second time against a non conference opponent. So we aren't getting that. I hear you on that, but they're gonna lose games. I know. If you're the NCAA, yeah, you know, he's probably gonna lose a game somewhere, so they'll stay under the threshold. And secondly, I don't know, you got a $1 billion television deal with CBS, maybe throw him a bone and say, hey, you need a double header. You and LB can play. I agree with you on this 100%. And I don't have the reason as we record this in real time Friday morning about why that other game didn't get scheduled. Could you have done UNLV versus northwestern because northwestern was looking for a game willing eager and wanting to play one? They're not alone. Real quick, because I'm sure people listening or they saw Rick patino tweet about it. Just, you know, like, Rick Pitino and I own, that would he like knew what he was doing. He was being cheeky. Iona was contracted to play in a separate event with another group, so I own a couldn't leave that to go play in another event altogether. I own a lost his game against seton hall. The other element about this before you want to get to talking to whatever else is in talking to numerous people across college basketball on Thursday. Here's the deal. Okay. And I don't know if this is specifically what happened with Ohio State and UCLA because I'm told like UCLA's deal in general. This goes back to last season, like with that university, their doctors, everything like, I guarantee is not making the call on whether UCLA's plan, Saturday. It was not his call. 100% was not his call, but I don't know if I'm about to tell you, applies to utility in Ohio State, but I know it.

"The tough place to come out of Against anyone but especially against an elite defense but credit to to the falcons because they they did climb out in fact. There are a couple of times that you could say if this play is made air force might win. You look in the first half. Mike davis who has been as good of an office a weapon air forces had all season drops. His sure fire touchdown pass. That would have went. I believe eighty two yards could've changed the complexity of the first half and then the second half backup quarterback warren. Brian comes in nearly hits. A long pass to brandon lewis a san diego native who got free Beyond the secondary for the if that's six inches shorter ran and louis probably goes the distance. And it's twenty one. Twenty i in favor of the falcons. So air force had his chances. Couple of costly turnovers led the six points for san diego state. And then the the difference. We're talking to. Jesse kurtz lead anchor of the mountain west network this weekend as we talked about. There's some big ones see. Issue boise state. That's a big one. But how about fresno state and san diego state. That's going to be the the late game. I believe on saturday and this is for a second three weeks. And diego state is Involved in one of the elite games in the country last week it was air force. San diego state combined record of twelve and one. Which is the best win percentage for two opponents playing each other in the country this week they get saying fresno state combined record of thirteen and two. That's the third best. Fbi game of the weekend behind michigan michigan state who are a combined fourteen to know An sme houston thirteen one. So san diego state continues to play the games winner probably gets in. That driver seats not probably is in the driver's seat for a shot to get into the mountain west championship game. San diego state We'll have beaten to of the top teams in back to back weeks being air force and and fresno state but then you look at fresno state they will be two of the top two teams in nevada and san diego state and Those teams being in their division. If you've got those two wins in your pocket With a chance to to run the table the rest of the way fresno state's in a really good spot so division supremacy on the line the oil the oil cans on the line. These two longtime rivals had some fierce battles. So this'll be one of the best games in the country. There's no question about jesse last one for you. We're we're running up against the break. Unlv owens seven but my goodness they keep getting close every single week. It looks like they're going to get over that hump i man. They got nevada this week. But it's it's it's a tough road for you know kind of feel bad though. It does seem like they're very close. One would think that they're going to get over the hump here. Real seven point loss of four point loss of seven point eight point loss. I mean that's in four consecutive weeks. So marcus arroyo is very very close. Nevada might be a tough one but they got new mexico hawaii After that so might be an opportunity to get that first victory for marcus arroyo here on the horizon. Yeah well we shall see jesse appreciate as always my friend and we'll look forward to catching up with you next week. Always appreciate it..

What most salamanders grow up to be the big normally absorbed the heels on the leave the water and go in the adult could into the land. And that's all decided to don't do that. They decided to stay as juvenile and reproduced as unlv within the water. So that's the reason they tell them that they are forever young because yes they kept the young and still join us for the rest of their lives forever. Young salamander that's fantastical but scientifically. What does that even mean. So in the animal kingdom it's called nakatani for exiles. It means that even when they're grown up which in this case growing up for them means they can mate. They keep some of their juvenile features. Oh so do they keep the crown of gills. That lewis was talking about earlier. Yeah they do and they also keep the fin on their back that they had when they were tadpoles. And because of this axles. Don't leave the water. Like other salamanders eventually do got it. Okay so do we know why they do that. Well scientists think it could have something to do with the water where axles live like being a better habitat. Maybe it had plenty of food or clean water so they lost this metamorphosis step although the scientists can still trigger it in the lab if they use hormones and emily axles do something even cooler than being the poster child for the fountain of youth.

"UNLV desperately needs that the run can is not what I would call. Listen, I love Williams. He's great player. He's gonna He's gonna You know, gotta books. He had a buck 70. I understand what 70 and two touchdowns I understand. Like I was just saying he's a great player. He's a top 10, Russia, right. He's a week one. He's uh he's going to break a lot of records for UNLV. No question about that. But what I was saying was, it's going to take a lot of pressure off of him. If they can mix up their offense and and throw the ball through the air a little bit then I think they have, and that's all I'm saying. You can't just rely on Williams, who is an unbelievable He's a great kid. He should open up the play action for a quarterback that could actually get the ball down. We didn't see that in the first half. We didn't see that in the first he calls plays like that, right, right. That's right out of your own way. Get out of your own way, Coach and I agree. Williams. We need some last here and the problem with an offense that is not a pro style offenses. P A is not a big part of it. So what they were able to do in the second half was they were able to mix it up a little bit. And again, it was against Eastern Washington Eastern Washington. Terrible defensively. Good offensive team, not a horrible football team, but they still Eastern Washington gave them every opportunity to win that game, and they were unable to do so. The over under over under I'm just being honest. The over under on UNLV wins this year is 1.5. Most of those people who set those lines had two games that they looked at it as do I. It was the game against Eastern Washington and Utah State. I'm gonna tell you something. Utah State went on the road over the weekend and had a huge win on the road. Utah State is better than I thought. At least after week. One. I don't Brian, I'm going to be honest with you here. I know you're you're a little bit more positive than I am. And I'm trying to be trying to be fair here a little bit, huh? Well, I can't. I can't look at Brian. Can you look at one game on their schedule and say that's a game they should win? I can't find one game that I can. I can say I'm not saying they're not going to win a game. But I can't find one game where I say I think they're going to win that one. I just can't You know what I'll do this. I agree with you in the fact that I believe like you do that. They will probably not be favorited any from this season, right? You know what I mean? They probably would be favored in any game this season. Um, but I won't say this and this is this is that everyone knows college football will agree with the biggest jump for any team is made between the first game in the second game, right and they have a lot of momentum coming from the first game to the second game, so hopefully they can build on that and you may see a really good team. If everything happened the way it should for you, and you should see a good team on Saturday, a team that loses probably, but a much better team. So with that, being said, if they play that well against Arizona State, then I think they can win two games somewhere down the line line that they shouldn't win. Or maybe even Three games. They shouldn't win. Yeah, I mean, yeah, They're not winning this weekend, though, have to do is we're not winning the next couple weeks. I think we all could probably agree on that. But I hope you're right. I hope you're right, Brian. And as you know, and you know this better than anybody. Teams are a lot more enjoyable to cover when they're winning.

College Football Bets: Week 1
"On. Espn dot com chuck section. I've given them out daily wager. But you know we'll rip through a few here i want to start with. Ecu this numbers come down a little bit. They play thursday night against appalachian state and look. I think he's us live dog. Jay vermont talked about it as well. They have a bunch of veterans including senior quarterback and app. State's been a little shaky as well. And they have a new quarterback and chase. Bryce you might remember him. He played a key. Clemson then transferred to duke ten and a half a lot of points for team that always seems to pull games out of the hat and have crazy place at the end. I like myself getting double digits plus ten right now but still i would out jumping on on ec as long as you get double digits and maybe a little sprinkle on the money line. That could be some fun The came by actually liked the most Kinda scared about it and it's umass and everybody who listen to pod on a somewhat regular basis knows. I'm kind of the betting bully as humans. A frequent guest. Your calls me. I like to bet on bet against bad teams. Just just do it right. Like orioles season win total under. I've certainly bet against umass in the past but thirty eight is just way too many points. And i'll tell you why won't bell and umass went out and got a bunch of transfers. Their quarterback is a six foot five inch from from colorado like the university of and or colorado university of boulder. And they have two running backs that transferred in one from rutgers. So a team that was like. Fcs not too long ago or fcs quality has some real players and you only have to get thirty eight now pits good. But they're at tennessee. The following week nerd uzis not a guy who's going to run up the score. He's old school. Fourth quarter they'll bring in the is a little bit and on top of that. Probably the best handy angle. I have is the offense coordinator for pit is a guy named mark whipple. He's coached umass twice head coach. Also the most recent time was just a few years ago. This is not situation where he wants to embarrass his former program. Umass is a special place in his heart. Whipple's going to call off the dogs as well. So i just think if you can get about two touchdowns even if it's garbage time i think plus thirty eight is the play in. That game is crazy. As it sounds another game. I like is essentially a coin. Flip game and it syracuse minus one. And a half. you might remember. I've talked about it with jay motto. The over three in the win total. They're going to split time at quarterback. Babies made that announcement. I don't love it. I would prefer. Tommy devito to be the entire time but dual threat with michigan state. Sorry mississippi state transfer garrett schrader. They're just better at a lot of positions that ohio but most importantly syracuse addressed. Their offense align issues. There was a pathetic. Offense couldn't even average average about two hundred fifty yards per game. Not passing just total yards per game. The veto would be injured. A lot spent a lot of time on his back. If they're okay on the offensive line this is just a syracuse team. That's just better. No more frank. Solich at ohio. Bob cats will rotate. Quarterbacks curtis rourke. Who's obviously the brother of nathan rourke the former stud bob cats quarterback and then armani rogers transfer from unlv. Ohio's very good. They looked good last year against the too bad teams really bad teams in the mac akron bowling green. But i think use gets there which is better talent especially with vito healthy and maybe we hope and improved offensive line. Fourth play i want to talk about

"Be in the press box. I don't think we're allowed to mingle in the masks and unmasked is actually would be good though. Because i don't know how much we'll have to write about the game because as gruden said today nobody's playing. I think that many the starters so who knows what it's excited for a lot of case cooks yet case cook as well it might play every snap. So let's get to that real quick. We're not gonna be able to see which i mean. I do think in get said today. Rookies like leatherwood. I would assume a trayvon more. Google play you gotta start looking at these dyes so. Is that what we should be excited about. Cars not gonna play waller's not gonna play jacobs plays and like. I said we wouldn't play any of those if we were the coach. Also i guess. I mean leatherwood. Maybe i don't know from jacked up for an offense alignment 'cause even if he gives up saxes against is we'll probably are gonna be the quarterback no offense to them so. I guess i'm gonna look on the defensive side of the ball at safety and maybe other places that might be interesting to watch onset. Yeah i mean. I do expect. You're gonna see some of the guys in the in the cornerback competition i. I don't know how much of a competition it is. It seems like it's kind of winding out now. But even some of those guys like. I doubt trayvon molin plays at casey hayward plays but i think you're gonna see guys like our net You know guys like that who Are still trying to prove something. Maybe not rookies. Because it didn't have pre seasons last year Guys at around. So i think defensively look at that and then the linebackers i mean Ten abuses getting a lot of run with the ones. I don't think that actually happens. Because i don't think they play a lot of base anyway but he's getting a lot of run with the ones like i. I think we'll see how he looks. He didn't play all last year. I'm sure he'll be out there In and we'll get to see exactly what maybe the coaches see in him Jason white farmer. Unlv player who will play a lot of imagine And then you're you're going to get some guys that you know just on Just because there's you know you look down the death star like even the third and fourth stringers like you know their names you. You've you're interested in them for the most part and the you want to see them play so i do think there's intriguing i also i get very annoyed when people trash the preseason. It's fun to joke about. I guess but listen. It's not only an opportunity for guys to get there there. You know Games on film and be seen by other teams as well as your own team..

"So you look at how our ancestors lived. They exercise they had to do fourteen times. More physical activity than us. Just to live pre-coded freak open. Now we're probably less So obviously there's the physical element right. But also i think psychologically increasing with what you talk about with the culture wars so if you look at young people today especially so people born after nineteen ninety. You see this rise in helicopter parenting because like media stories about kidnappings really high profile stuff now. Kidnappings weren't even increasing as a whole but there were just high profile ones. All the sudden parents are like. I can't let my kids go outside into the woods or in a park but by doing that and having that time alone where you sort of challenge yourself as a kid i mean think about your own experience at the playground or in the woods like i learned a lot out there do when i think about what my parents let me do in compared to today like back then i was pissed at how little they would let me do but it was basically like they would just give you. A couple of rules sets like walk facing traffic. I don't know if that's smarter not but can't ride your bike on main roads. You have to walk it and you have to walk facing traffic but beyond that man we would. We would take our bikes miles away from my house miles away from my house. No super no adults no expectation and by the way we were going miles away to a bike track so that we could do tricks and shit. Yes and it's like a hundred percent hundred percent and same with me and down. My mom was basically like yeah. Come down by sundown. You know she wouldn't know what i was doing. It was just. I was out doing stuff That's that's happening for kids. And so this idea of challenge in a lot of different ways gets removed because not only. Are you physically challenged right when you are going out doing stuff in the woods but also like your your worldview gets challenged. Think about interactions on the playground. I got punched in the face on the playground a lot. I probably deserved it. Sometimes and i learned something for the may say something about you when that goes away. All of a sudden kids don't have challenges and so now you have this generation where because they have not been challenged what they consider a challenge. Something like you know. I'm professor at unlv. So if they say something you know have a point and i pushed back on that and all the sudden. That's kind of scary because you've never been punched in the face on the playground right so that becomes scared like in my classes. I'll bring up stuff and no one wants to say anything because what if you know what if someone challenges me or like. There's there people younger people. Especially i think are a little more sensitive to a lot of a lot of the stuff. We're talking about here. And as a result of that you see levels of anxiety and depression. They're higher in the generations born after nineteen ninety than any other generations that came before them significantly. They're up like thirty and fifty percent.

So go find it. We're not going to spend any time on that here but let me walk you through the other notable developments richard patino out at minnesota and as up tuesday morning. He's the new coach at new mexico. State has quote parted ways with steve. Prohm depaul finally took. Dave laid off the hot seat list. Boston college hired earl. Grant penn state hired mike castrucci berry dead leg spin a pretty good right now. It's spinning man. Yeah listen we give the. We are gearing up for this tournament. We got we got more than forty eight hours till. We're gonna tip the first game here so as expected. We've had some movement on the carousel. So we'll let's get into a little bit of this This scuttle but here kind of take it job by job. Best job openings indiana. Let's kind of go in order. I guess second best job. That's open. I would say iowa state is a better job than minnesota steve. Prohm gets fired late monday night. His jamie pollard was on the selection committee so he traveled back as he should have to meet with promo person and do what he what needed to be done You and i both seven the podcast in january. We expected steve prone to return next season. But we also didn't expect iowa state to never win a game like he just got to an irreversible point. so he's done. He put out a classy statement on tuesday morning. And i don't know whether or not steve prohm will land somewhere else head. Coaching position this coaching cycle but he will be a head coach again. He did take iowa state to three inch tournaments he was really good prior to that at murray state and certainly qualified for. It's just a matter of Is there anything out there. That he would be offered or anything out there that he would want as for the job. The candidates we're early. But i'm told that this is certainly a coach that you know quite well as well i'm told jamie pollard definitely will be considering. Unlv head coach. Tj burger near the top of his list. I can't say that he is the favorite. I just think that it's objectively true. That tj also burger will be under consideration for the iowa state job along the likes of. You're going to hear puerto moser connected to multiple jobs on this podcast because let's face it especially if he wins at least one tournament game. He's just a hot name. And he's going to be attached to iowa st paul minnesota. I i don't know if you'd be a favorite for state. But i think his name makes sense. I think utah. State's craig smith might make sense and then a high. I do have a wildcard one. Uab's andy kennedy has gone to the sec. Good job at ole miss. He's just one year and at uab but he had he had a really good year. In fact i think he won more games in his first season. This past season than just about anyone. Maybe all of all of the first year coach coaches. So i think that's a fact no first year coach at a new program. One more games this season than ak i. It's just i'm lobbying out. There is a name that should be considered. And then i did see fran for shila tweet this and i do. I do think there's something to it. Like a baylor is a one seed could be in the final four. Hey first time since bill henderson all that good stuff tang is a is a high level power conference assistant that is deserving of an opportunity would come at a power conference level. I don't know. But i think it's only a matter of time before jerome tank. Its job as well. So i'm just tossing him in knows the league as potentially someone that They should consider or at least at the very least interview sets an initial pool of

Biden To Allow Some Separated Migrant Families To Reunite
"A new bite administration policy to allow Children who remain in the U. S s custody after being separated from their parents of the border to reunite with their parents in the United States or in their country of origin. Suzanne Potter reports. Under President Donald Trump. Parents were deported without their Children and hundreds of kids remain in U. S care. Debra Weinstein, with the coalition on Human needs, says the separations harmed Children and amounted to a shocking moral failure. What the Trump administration did enforcing Children and families apart was unspeakably cool, and it was contrary to our moral code into the rule of law. The Biden administration is taking unnecessary and inhumane step. Weinstein says the government should consider restitution and look at giving the family's a pathway to citizenship. It is unclear if families that already have been reunited abroad will be allowed to come to the US while they pursue their claims of asylum. Opponents of the change say it will encourage a new surge of asylum seekers at the border, says CIA. Alvarado is Nevada state director for the nonprofit Mi Familia. Time, she says. This is an important win for the immigrant community. I'm a mother and a month on immigrant. Just the thought of it to be separated from my daughter. It's terrifying. I think they deserve to have an opportunity to be here to heal to receive treatment for the traumas to be hurt. The Department of Homeland Security is expected to release more details of the policy in the coming weeks. The UNLV immigration clinic recently helped a family regained custody of a child.

You know we tell you wanna know at a time and one game at a time. So that's what you're seeing right now. His numbers of improved. His completion percentage improved each year. And this year i thought he was really really good. This is about to be an all time. High waist can swim urge. You know just both on the ground with his arm and tony. You recently have long conversation with during his mother about the families football journey to get a sense of what it takes to raise a blue chip quarterback these days so first of all tell us a little bit about during mother mel the thompson robinson. She's a professor at unlv. And i know. She took a very big role in raising doreen and helping them go to this journey. She separated with his father. She's kind of the one who is doing most of the heavy lifting. He has a sister as well such as the family who seems very self aware all right so when did the families. Football journey begin. When during i start playing football obviously playing when he was very young and playing pop warner r. e. and then because we live in las vegas the we have you know good weather year round know the fall and spring in tournaments in the summer. So you know. Football is almost year round this prisoner. Sophomore year he played some receiver than towards his judy. That's when he was solely focusing on quarterback. There's not a lot of available quarterback trainers in las vegas so he had to travel the phoenix to some work. Done glow to seem as quarterback coach very often. Because of the like once a year he actually worked with in person. One year never wait. There's more virtual learning which is kind of unique before the pandemic so his mom would watch him throw passes and she tried to use what she learned from the quarterback coach to kind of teach dory and what to do via video know with uploaded to kogo. Dr been shared with his coach. And then they would you know talk about it or you know. They would go through his game film or other film and just talk about like. What are the things that you should be looking at which you should be doing. So i assume that this private quarterback coaching he was getting was fairly pricey. What other expenses was his family taking on as dorian was coming up through high school. Yeah there's that tuition and schools during bishop gorman in las vegas twelve thirteen thousand dollars a year you. We were paying for camp in spirit packs.

Embarrassing performance on the road against not a very good Nevada Reno team. I understand. You know, he was out without Hamilton, but Nevada Reno is 1 43 in the country. They got blasted by close to 30. I mean, what do your thoughts on this game? Yeah, I got out of hand very quickly actually watching the game this thing what was one of the last of been on the night? So for all those who gamble on Wade, wrong sports, you know, just like we laughed. And then in the evening, so you know you got a little action on it. Um, took over. So that came through. But man, it was interesting that there was just a lack of effort. When you don't decide it was lack of pride. Um, you know, it's a rivalry. Game one. But just in general, where's the energy? You know, Where is the one to Where is that? Hey, you know what? Let's go ahead and do Let's go ahead, try and win this game. There was nothing about that I had it was Nevada had it right, Jameson. They look like a team that was ready to go. They look like a team that played with passion. Nevada played like a game like it was a game. That was their most important game of the year. And and it was probably frankly for Nevada and I agree with everything you said Jamison. My answer is why Why does you and I'll be come out with no passion? Why did why? What I mean? What's what's the answer here? That's a great question you know out of it does come from coaches and being the coaching. You know, you gotta prepare your players and I plead. Officer Berger said that after the end of a workfare, then you know that's it. That's the issue, you know, but we'll see. I mean, the thing about this season is Conferences is playing teams back to back so we'll see what happens tomorrow night. Let's talk about that. Let's talk about that, Jamison because Don't think just playing better is good enough. This is the most important game of the year for UNLV. In my personal opinion, in my opinion, even without Hamilton, this is a game that they have to win. This is an important game. I think they will play better. They can't play worse. But do you agree with me that to kind of redeem yourself? You have to. This is a game. That's the most important game of the year because when I talk about you and me, they're not making the end State tournament..

Ask your C E s brought in roughly 180,000 attendees and at an estimated total economic impact of $291.4 million. That's according to the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority. All of that spending has been lost this year as C E S has gone virtual due to the pandemic. Health officials in Nevada Sunday reported 2259 new covert 19 cases and 17 more deaths. The latest figures pushed the state's totals 248,568 cases on 3474 known deaths since the pandemic began. Look at the numbers of deaths. They tend to trail The reality of the outbreak by about a month or so. So we're talking about people that were likely infected beginning of December.

"Won't hear on Vegas radio That is Criticism of the UNLV program. You're not gonna hear that very often on other stations, but you're gonna get it here. I had some conversations with some some big time boosters from UNLV yesterday. A few of them not gonna mention their names before I get to those conversations. Talk about the game last night is what? I don't know what that was. Maybe that was the U. N of the athletic department wanted to get me off the air. That's very possible. Um You and I'll be has had some struggles. Obviously with the coronavirus. They've had players that have tested positive for the virus. TJ outsell Burger, the UNLV head coach tested positive so they haven't played in a while. But make no mistake about it before they took this break. They had recently just got their first win. They were completely embarrassed in the Maui Invitational that was embarrassing. So they play last night, Pretty good Colorado state team on the road. They were dominating for most of the game. I would say at least 35 minutes of that game. It looked like they were gonna come away victorious. But when you look at basketball coaches, I ask myself two questions. Are you getting the maximum out of the talent you have Would say right now The answer is no. And the last three or four minutes of a game is when the coach Makes a difference. A management Calling out plays, setting up your defense, so on and so forth. So yesterday, UNLV not only blew their lead and had some defensive breakdowns, but also the shot selection was atrocious. But the biggest criticism I'm going to give TJ outside Berger's What took place 20 seconds left to go. By far the best offensive player on UNLV would be Bryce Hamilton. By far he's probably an NBA player. He can score from everywhere. He could shoot the three he can score in the post. He takes the ball to the basket. He's a great athlete. He's a great player now. At that point is 23 points. He's having a good game. And he actually hit a shot with 49 seconds to go that gave the rebels elite. Now they lose the lead. TJ Ansel Burger sets up a play. The ball is never in Bryce Hamilton's hands. It is in the hands of one of you and all these sharp shooters that hadn't scored in the second half. Now I understand the thought process of well, let's run a play for somebody else because Colorado State's gonna assume we're gonna get the ball to Hamilton Ridiculous. Because worst case scenario, Hamilton gets the ball and he's double teamed. It means somebody's gonna get open. Instead, you and all these settles for a contested MBA three. It's horrible coaching. What do you want me to say? I know there's people in the universe a flight departing. They're gonna be very angry. If Brian Oh my God. I can't believe he's criticizing the UNLV head coach. That's my job when it's warranted, just like I do with anybody else. It was a horrible, horrible coaching decision, and by the way, it wasn't an accident. Bryce Hamilton was asked about that last play after the game. The play was not designed for him. It was designed it exactly the way it went. Take a three. By the way when you don't need a three, take a three. By the way with 10 seconds left to go in the game. There were there was still time on the clock to get a better shot. Horrible coaching. And I'm gonna tell you this right now you and I'll be played well for most of the game. He came away with loss. They're what one in six now is that one in five? It's one of five or one in six. This is unacceptable. This is year to stop it with the excuses about the coronavirus because there are other basketball teams that have faced similar challenges. They're not one in six. Stop it. Stop it with how young the team is that they haven't played together that they don't have the experience. Stop it. It was a bad year one. And here's what makes the situation worse. And in talking to some of my friends who are boosters who have donated a lot of money to the program. They are pissed off. Why, for a number of different reasons. First of all, they're one in five. Not one in six, maybe soon to be one in six because they believe they play Colorado State again tomorrow. They're not gonna win that game. You caught Colorado State on what might have been one of their worst performances for at least 35 minutes. They still want Not winning tomorrow. There are boosters that I have spoken to that are very, very upset. First of all, you're paying TJ outside burger, more money than any other coach in the Mountain West Conference. That's a joke. TJ probably would have taken this job for 600,000 year. You're paying him seven figures. That is a joke. You're telling me that TJ also Burger, a guy who had a couple good years at South Dakota State. Deserves more money than Steve Alford. While Steve Alford is kind of an a hole. Would have been happy with that higher because Alfred is a proven winner in the Mountain West Conference. He's a good coach. TJ had two good years itself to go to state with arguably the best offensive player in the country who he didn't recruit in an awful conference..

It’s the same old story for North Carolina basketball in loss to the Wolfpack
"On sunday. We spent several minutes discussing a disappointing blueblood with the hall of fame coach kentucky led by john calipari today. We'll spend another few minutes on another disappointing blueblood with another hall of fame coach this time it's north carolina and roy williams the tar heels fell at nc state on tuesday. Seventy nine seventy six so now. Five and three. The other losses are texas in iowa best win over stanford ladder you and i both had north carolina projected as the third best team in the acc in the preseason. Are we still confident. Unc is a top three in the acc. No did i really have them third. I looked double checks man. it's not ideal right now. we both had it. We both had it. Virginia duke north carolina in that order. Well i didn't have carrots. So here's where. I differed in the preseason with some of the projections yours and and others. I did not have carolina ranked in the top twenty five portion of my one two three fifty seven. I i put carolina twenty eight. And i remember before like settling on an ultimate order like my first initial like. Let me throw everything at the wall. I think i'd carolina like thirty six or thirty seven and the reason was they were so poor last year. I mean historically bad. It was one of the five or six worst seasons in school history. Statistically that i was just. I wasn't totally sold on them. Going from fourteen and nineteen a season ago to being if your top. Three team in the acc You know that's probably a four seat at worst. And i wasn't all in on him there. I thought okay. Maybe they can get along the lines of a five or six seed and that was really what wound me wind up with me. Booting them up a little bit. But at this point you know. I watched the majority of that. Nc state game. I would argue. It wasn't even a three point game. Nc state truly beat them by six or seven points now five and three losses the losses all respectable so. It's an interesting situation with unc. Here lost texas in a really really good game championship. Which was obviously nashville. Then they lose at iowa but it wasn't that competitive ninety three eighty. Now they take the road loss against nc state. The win against kentucky and cbs sports classic has almost no value. The win over stanford is solid but otherwise charleston. Unlv north carolina central their next game at georgia tech a week from one. We're talking here. On december thirtieth so i think there is still the chance and with all due respect as always to leaky black here. And he's actually. I think he's. He's been good in spots but they're not as good as they should be. I still really love. The frontline is still think. This could be one of the courts in america but it should be noted fourteen thousand nine hundred last season. Now it's five three. And i'm not gonna guarantee you that this team is heading to the instability tournament and in the preseason. Unc got by on its jersey name. I don't know i. I was always a little hesitant there and some of that has come to the surface. This is clearly clearly not a top twenty five team right now. In north carolina as you mentioned the go fourteen and nineteen last season and the reason that i had them in the preseason top twenty five and one thought that they would have a really nice bounceback season because they in elite recruiting class featuring three five star freshman. The way they're supposed to go from fourteen and nineteen to really good is that three five-star freshmen are great. And they're all fine. I guess but none of them are playing like freshman of the year candidates like against nc state day. Ron sharpe had six points. Fourteen minutes walker kessler had three points and twelve minutes. Caleb love had eleven point four assists two turnovers in twenty eight minutes. Like if you're five star freshman aren't gonna perform like five star freshman consistently well. Then you're not going to go from from bad to to really good. You can go from bad to good from bad to respectable from bad to an ncaa tournament team. But you're not going to be elite unless you five star freshman perform at an elite level. They are not doing that right now.

The Road Map To Valorant First Strike
"We had the nerd street gaming first-strike closed qualifiers wrap up. And now today we had the un g unlv first-strike open qualifiers. Start now these are the teams and we'll get to in a moment are either ones. That didn't i mean they could be brand new teams that you've never seen before but they could also be teams that failed to qualify from the last strike. So you're going to see you guys like and box and phase energy things like that. You're going to see familiar teams in this event as well. I think cloud nine or declared non-qualified qualifying. Okay cloudy qualify Just also had upset. But so there's there's all that for you. I strike all of a sudden somewhat confusing for me but nonetheless. Probably the most confusing tournaments setup. I've ever seen in my life. It's really it's so brutal that liquid. Pd doesn't even give you a description in the breakdown of how the tournament is being run first of all you. Gene has been a mess in terms of getting the team. Set up like it's almost like they said they had the number of teams signed up but then they really didn't have everybody signed up and i Cloud nine is the. Um g qualifier so they They didn't go through close for nerd street. So making it to the quarters. Advance you in advance as you too. So cloud nine to not make it to the finals. What will be considered the finals. But they are in like the teams that are qualified for the first strike north american finals. Right which only eight teams will get in the top four from nerd street tournament and the top four for you. Mg okay so it's top for non top. They making matters it. You had to get top four so you have envy one. Hundred thieves renegades who upset cloud nine and sentinels so those are the four teams qualified from nerd street gaming tournament you gene now which will have every team that dinna qualify. Pretty much playing in it. Those top four will then qualify. So you'll have eight teams total into what will actually be called valiant first strike which is the main event will be held december third through the six for america again berbers. Let's wrap up the nerd street. Yes version of using because everyone just keep us included. Because i didn't realize it. Everyone just keeps saying i strike. Oh we're in the first qualifiers. Oh we're in the closed qualifier. No you're in the nerd street first-strike qualifiers like the qualifier number one yes in qualifier number. Two you know so for north st clair's qualifiers with did have that event wrap up. Yeah i'm tim just mentioned the four teams again being renegades. Nb sentinels in hundred thieves. I think Some notable teams than that are obviously going to be fighting for their lives. Here would be. Tsm did not make it through t one whereas also now top four. They were top eight and cloud nine complexity as well. But i think team won t sam in cloud nine kind of more Considered kind of the best of the best type thing in that sense t one little bit more to prove their Than the other two
The search for ancient civilizations on Earth ... from space
"Okay. So first off Sarah Park is kind of a big deal. She's helped uncover prehistoric commented fossils in eroded canyon lake beds, an ancient amphitheater under an airport in Rome and Egypt, which is her specialty. She's uncovered thousands of settlements including more than a dozen pyramids. Are you tired the perpetually, but it's okay. She's written about those discoveries by the way in a recent book called archaeology from. From Space and yes, Sarah does go to sites and do some real digging in the dirt archaeological excavation. But her superpower is analyzing satellite imagery and data to know where to dig in the first place. Most of the imagery I use is called optical satellite imagery. So so it stayed essentially taken from light that's reflected off the surface and looking for changes in patterns we're looking for. How things relate to one another, and hopefully, that will indicate where there could potentially be archaeological sites or features with insights, and then we get to go out on the ground and do serve mapping and excavate them. When you say you use satellite images, what are we talking about a week? Where do those images come from and kind of how do you manipulate them? So it's a, it's a range of different satellite images. So if we're interested in looking really really large landscapes, we use data from NASA but if we're looking. Looking. At very high resolution satellite images, we use the essentially the imagery that you see on Google Earth, which is from a company called Knox our technologies that challenge with that data is that we can't see through trees. I'm dealing with rainforests, of Central, America or Southeast Asia or forest say in New England. Then we use Technology Coal Ladar which tends for light detection and ranging, and that's Eliezer mapping system that you put on an airplane or a drone or a UNLV essentially allowing you to remove trees and see what's there. In your book, you also explain how archaeologists now have the ability to detect temperature differences below the ground. Why? Yes. How first of all cool second of all, how does that work and why is that important? So one particular part of the light spectrum that is really really useful for for the work that we do is the thermal infrared. So if you have anything that's buried and is a chamber or avoid like a room, a tomb a very passageway, you know if it's kind of. Of like when you go into a basement or a wine cellar, you know the temperature drops a couple of degrees. So by using thermal infrared, you can see these very subtle differences in temperature, and if say an area shows up with a lower temperature, that's the shape of a rectangle. Okay. There's something that's there that we may need to check out right in Salt Lake. You're like cake in archaeologists out of business, right? So it's like you still end up going in there. It just kind of. Of helps like going in there and digging stuff up and looking at stuff with different techniques. It's basically just giving you a good idea of like there might be something here, right ex-. Exactly I mean the coolest part of my job I think is the actual physical excavation and that so time consuming and so what the satellites allow us to do is not just fine sites, but also track over time potential threats to them. So whether it's rising water whether it's urbanization or development, maybe there are. are other issues that could be affecting. The sites would allows it's a tool that allows geologists to help, monitor and protect sites right, and and so you even kind of tried to estimate like obviously estimating how many more archaeological sites might be out there, and it's in like the millions right I. I think I estimated and I'm probably I probably not going to give the right number guy the book even though it was the summer, it was Sarah, fifty, fifty, fifty, fifty, sixty, seventy. Eighty ninety. So. Yeah. So so basically I think something like forty, million, fifty, million sites left to find. But like I could be wrong, it could be one, hundred, million, it could be ten, million North Y'all just yet has written me an angry email saying how dare you? Thank, like I think I was pretty on the mark. So. There's another thing that I kind of wanted to talk to you because I don't talk to that many archaeologists, you know what I mean, but now at my own show and they can't stop me, Sarah. So. Can we talk a little bit about how colonialism and archaeology have intersected in the past and and maybe how it still does now, and what we can do about that? I? Guess that's a big question for you. The big question and it's something I and my colleagues think about. A. Lot. So first of all I, have to acknowledge that that archaeology especially, egyptology. It both those fields as well as anthropology, they have deeply racist colonialist routes. All of them, you know Westerners parachute in. Do their projects were essentially archaeological tourists that were probably rank. rankle a lot of my colleagues I. don't care someone needs to speak out about this and they leave which is, which is appalling. You know I pay guards around at the site where I work at list. I have very close relationships with the village My. My education course staff. I speak to them every single week and and at the end of the day, it's about those relationships. So I think we all have to do a lot of hard stares in the mirror at ourselves and ask what are we taking and what are we leaving? Are we training? Are we providing equipment and materials? What else should we be doing to create some more parody and the in the work that we're doing and I'm not the only one doing this by there's so many colleagues both in Egypt and elsewhere are being which were intentional. But I think we have to ask a lot of hard questions. You talk in the book about the importance of discoveries in how a few small discoveries can impact a field more than like a headline worthy discovery, which I. Really like because I think as a person, who's you know been a part of the scientific process. It's frustrating when you know only the big kind of discoveries. Get credit for changing fields. When in reality, it is those little findings you know what I mean. So I'll get, I'll give you an example a colleague and friend of mine few row him a fee. Fi is currently leading excavations in an area near the Valley of the Kings in Egypt and he and his team just uncovered a new workmen's village. So it's a place where men would have stayed and lived as they were constructing tombs in the Valley of the Kings. and kind of compared to other discoveries, not just in Egypt, but but elsewhere, it really didn't get much play but I think it's one of the most extraordinary discoveries in. Egypt. In the last twenty years, we only know of one other workmen's village in West Bank in Luxor. It's an unbelievable fine because it's going to tell us about the daily life of the people who lived and worked. You know three, thousand, three, hundred, three, thousand, five, hundred years ago, right up and to me, it's those discoveries that are most interesting. All Right Sarah. Park. We appreciate you. This is a lot of fun likewise. Thank you so much. Go go go to bed I I. Learned. They're GONNA pay you. Thanks to Sarah. Park. You can read about her work and her book, which is called archaeology from space, how the
The Paul Finebaum Show
Conversation With Mountain West Commissioner Craig Thompson
"Delighted to welcome. To our program, a very important guests at this unbelievably strange time from the Mountain West Conference Commissioner Craig Thompson Commissioner thank you very very much for making the time I I, I can only imagine what your schedule is like. These days especially Zoom Bill Assuming there is one good afternoon. Paul good to be with you. You know I hope to mode no more about The next ninety minutes to two hours I have a four o'clock board calling five o'clock standing Monday de call, so we all compare notes and Kinda live by that old adage. God gave us two ears and one off for a reason, right? We're trying to learn from each other. Well we appreciate you making time I'm curious before we get down to some of the obvious questions Since, this occurred you. You've been very obviously active in in the NCAA, basketball tournament, having chaired the the men's basketball committee, and it all started there, and and I know in in your many many years is as commissioner. You've experienced so much but How do you? How do you prepare yourself for something like this? which is literally off the charts. Really is and you know again you don't because. no-one there might have been a few people worldwide They'd be well into their hundreds that were around nineteen eighteen. Spanish flu days, but For the most part, nobody's dealt with any of this Paul. So it's all new, and and it's It's disconcerting. It's hard. It's sad, but it's It's life and it's something we. We have to adjust to and and moved from. In as you get closer to what are really critical decisions, other conferences have made these choices many have not What what do you weigh as you're about to go onto? Another call here how how do you determine these things? Well, it's really got to beat a the safety and the health soccer you I think it's simply going to come down to what is the risk tolerance for for all the various groups just within our FBI subdivision and certainly there's. A rank and file and differences between the autonomous five leaks and a group of five leaks, but You've got you've got. A ton of governors. There's fifty state governors in that up BS group, one hundred thirty board of trustees, regions, one hundred thirty university presidents and Chancellors hundred thirty athletic directors under thirty head, football coaches, and I guarantee it dollar on the same page, and so you know we're. We're just trying to adjust on what makes the most sense for my university and ultimately our conferences. And everyone has a different set of circumstances as you said Commissioner Thompson but. It is late I think you know that we all we all know that. As you are about to go on these calls here in the next hour or two How do you start narrowing the window and coming to? Conclusions! Well we all kind of went into that false pretense and hope that fans should be better in July and August and we had time right back in March. We had four months to figure this out when we've got probably less than four weeks. A couple of weeks a big date coming up on Friday with you know the the six week period starting extended team practices, and then most camps opening somewhat in that August seventh time friend I! I had a good exchange with one of our head. Football coaches today saying you know I don't even know what to do. Because of campus regulations and concerns, we have one institution that's had nearly one hundred football players for little over a month. Now Paul and we have another institution that literally has no football players, conditioning of or working out degree, and so you know we're all over the map based on a local and university, muncipality rules and regulations and. I said this for months gone on standby. One of one of the big concerns and focal points for us is the state of California They just announced today that they're going to delay. The start of their prep season suggested until December or January didn't give an exacting, and they join a couple of states that the prep seasons have been canceled altogether one of our states New Mexico, so just just trying to deal with all the nuances and differences in rules, policies and allowances. As you as you try to deal with with some some issues before that certainly, the non-conference issues a lot of non conference. Games have been scrubbed. I. Has that been a major issue for you or Were you in reasonably good shape. Well it is a big issue, and of course years of all years. This is our twenty seven season A. We had more home games against PAC twelve than any time in our previous 21-year-history, we lost home games. Ucla at both. San Diego State ally. Utah, Colorado Washington state calendars on a state. They were GONNA play at the new two billion dollar NFL stadium in Las Vegas against UNLV so a lot of people like to point to that financial loss of losing the the six road at twelve games and a and a guarantee. Those seven home games from from both of financial interest level, and then ultimately you know television perspective CBS. Fox Aren't real thrilled. You know that we lost those seven home games. Talking to the Commissioner of the Mountain West Craig Thompson discussing all the variables. Commissioner. We. We've talked to so many different commissioners over these past few months, and as you as you so eloquently pointed out a minute ago. Everyone has a different set of circumstances and challenges you maybe more than than most because of the geographical aspect. But how do you think and it shouldn't be that hard to think about it since it's not far off? How how do you ultimately come up with what you would say? Good solution, not only for your member institutions, but for the safety of the athletes. Well again. You not to lean on your medical people and that's one of the. Major aspects of this board call coming up in an hour, so Paul because It's the first time that they in a while. They've heard directly from the the medical advisory group and you know they don't depend on them. You know they. They are the experts, will we? The board are economists and Then different walks of life. They're not medical people, per se, and so you know you really have to lean heavily on what makes sense I. I said four months ago and I I contend today. A lot of this is going to be perhaps probably triggered by what happens on our campuses. What they look like in the next month or so you know everybody's either hybrid mostly online You know there's GonNa. Be Certainly people walking around campus, but you know you. You really can't expect to have a college athletics if you don't have a fairly open in some degree. Campus. Commissioner I, it's no secret Wherever conferences are located and and and spread that football pays the majority of the bills there. There's some outliers of course but What's at stake you just from a revenue standpoint? Well you know. Let's all kinds of figures in I I know that A couple of our department said have lost Well in excess of ten million dollars now, and then could jump into without football alum Paul you know double and triple, and you know those are not insignificant numbers. They're smaller than the world. You live in I lived in Atlanta. For four years. New Orleans for twelve years both children born in New Orleans and well versed in an SEC football, and what it means in a walk of life, and so it's different, no question it's different I live in Colorado and and what it's like in Western states, but but none the less. You, do not escape whatever love your Ad. That football is probably that you know eighty eighty five percent of of an athletic budget, and and so it's so very important, but you know as harmful as painful rather as it is from the financial perspective now that cannot be the driving force won't be the driving force. It will be that the health and safety it'll be university decisions. You know I've always. Always felt. The presidents of universities and chances have an extremely difficult position now more so than ever because they're pushed him pulled in and all these different directions and you know I. Don't know how the decision will. Ultimately made would fall looks like from terms of football. I don't know who makes that decision, but Hopefully they'll be some clobbering collective. Let's let's go right to the College Football playoff. Can you even imagine a world where pick a number? Three conferences can play in the fall and seven up to play in the spring. What happens to see a p.? Is there a CFP? Does that make sense to have a CFP? I guess it might depend on those three conferences are and I use. You know you, you're GONNA have to look at this for for the good of everybody, and and you know the collaboration and collective exchange and we've seen conferences. Do things unilaterally I mean as a commissioner. You Work for twelve schools. You don't work for honored thirty FBI schools, and so you're doing what's right, and what's your membership is is directing and advise you to do, but we do have to get together and get the same page in some regards spor for the sake of the CFD for instance and the bowl system. I know at least I'm told in talking to your colleagues commissioners. We wind down. I know you've got a lot of meetings to that. You are a collaborative group. I mean that's a fact. I mean we see that all the time but it but I wonder though. Because we've already seen some some. Some schisms as we had the big ten, and then everyone else said something else I mean the PAC twelve and the big ten, and do you. Are you concerned about the stability of of what you do every day and try to work with everyone else within the framework of college athletics. I am and I'm not I mean again. We try to work together, but at the end of the day our plan for fourteen or ten members, order media have will dictate. What direction are leagues go and I know the NCAA takes a ton of shots, but the NCAA is membership driven. It's schools that are that are ultimately making decisions and the conferences the exact same way, so you know we can compare but I. I am concerned about The postseason college football, the the CFC's a five hundred million dollar enterprise NCAA. Basketball Championship is a six hundred million dollars in a prize number of conferences of two hundred and fifty to three hundred million dollar annual TV, contracts, and and we can't go ten I don't well. Yeah, anything's possible. You could go ten separate ways I. certainly don't think it's going to be that way at the end of the day. Commissioner will let you get back to your meetings, but thank you for making time. It was just a pleasure to to hear your perspective as someone who is so well respected. And revered in this industry we be well and let's hope for some good news. Stay safe yourself my friend.

We don't know what that means for what their next nickname will
Is Duke Done? A Season of NCAA Basketball Surprises
"Myron. I think the last time we spoke. I was at Cameron Indoor Stadium asking You what you thought about Zion Williamson. That was the last time and now Zion's gone and things haven't been as good for college basketball since he left. Myron Medcalf is a senior college basketball reporter for ESPN. Men's college basketball has been having a pretty weird season. Can you explain to us sort of the state of things and why some of the usually omnipresent contenders your dukes your? Unc's Kentucky aren't even in the top five while it's a meeting in a year like this anybody who tells you that they know exactly what's going to happen in March. They're lying because there was no one no expert. That understands kind of what's happened so far. It's just been a wild year but I think you can look at some of the things that transpired Really at the start of the season. I think the James Wiseman suspension by the answer. Aa For twelve games after being ruled ineligible. You have a Memphis team that I think had a chance to be much better if he sticks around. Lamelo ball who if he follows the traditional track and goes to a UCLA USC that changes the spotlight on those programs as well But instead you have a lot of the blue blood teams that don't have the lottery level talent that they had a year ago. Duke is still a top ten level team but they don't have anyone close To a Zaylon you'd have a team like Gonzaga that had to lottery picks last year. They got some good players. Nothing like that so the the powerhouse teams are just really good team which has closed the gap so now a San Diego State with the Malachi Flint and against double team Malachi for three huge three by malachite lend. That's a really good team. Competing for number one see the Dayton with an ob top suddenly was one of the best teams in America. And I think it's because you just don't have the same concentration of talent we're accustomed to seeing with your Kentucky's in Dukes. Then you'RE K. Use Marin what is it like covering a season like this where there are really clear favorites and no one seems to have any idea. What's going on this year? You just don't really know who to chase like. You don't know who to say okay. That's the team to watch. Because they're really good. It just feels like a pretty fragile college basketball scene which is great for the tournament for everything. We didn't have in college basketball this year in terms of no established kind of powerhouse team. I think we're going to see the benefits of it. Come into double A. Tournament. Time when we could have one of the craziest craziest. March madness is we've ever had so. Let's talk about Duke. Quit even when dukes not great? We're still going to talk about Dick. Because it's really interesting. Myron how much struggled on Saturday they lost to Virginia Virginia wins. That look the three point line. Just couldn't connect before that game. They were ranked seventh. But I imagine they could go down even further now right. Yeah I mean this is a team that I think will will fall in the rankings. Duke has run into some teams who put on their Superman capes in the last couple of games. And that's change things you have. Nc State which made sixty one percent of its threes and that loss A week ago wake forest mixed fifty four percent of its threes. These things those teams had done before they phase Duke and Virginia really as just a team on the rise So I think duke got caught in kind of a weird gauntlet there but trae Jones has been sort of their closer whereas a year ago you could go to RJ bear. You could go to Cam Reddish you could go on. And now they're a bit more one dimensional They're much closer to what you see. Maybe in a typical season where they're right there with Louisville and Florida state and Virginia and the other teams at the top of the ACC. But they don't have a guy who's GonNa carry them to the top of the League and just help them separate. That's just not enough talent in college basketball for really any team to do that. But especially in the league like the Agency. So you're in Kansas right now in Kansas. The number one team. You were there to watch them. Play Kansas State and it was a right because these two teams Fighting literally fighting back in January Shit and now the benches inc just unnecessary. That's not good. This is Paul. This is bad this is but on Saturday night myron. They shook hands before the tip off in. Kansas came away with the victory. What did you make of the number team in their performance? Well I I'm just glad nobody fought again because that that would have been bad Glad to have that moment before the game I will say. I've never been to a regular basketball game outside of the NCAA tournament that had as much security as that game. Had I mean they were everywhere about? I'm glad there was an incident. I I think Kansas is sort of the perfect team in a year like this. Do they have a lottery pick? No but they've got this really balanced group of guys who are pretty good offensively. They've been pretty efficient team and they got two guys who win they're together. They're hard to stop. It's Dotson In Gaza Buki who when they're on the floor together. Kansas made about sixty percent of his shots inside the art. Their opponents have made about forty one percent of their shots inside the three point line. That's the story right there when those two guys are together. Kansas is certainly the best team in America. But you also look at them and go. Are they one bad night from Abu? Koa from struggling. He was hurt part of the game on Saturday against the bad Kansas state team boss feeds it in bounced past as a group. Six to shoot you back down spits travels this is the shot ultimately but he rolled his ankle. Oh this is good has approved. He is clutching his right foot so Kansas is good. But like a lot of teams there. One bad moment badge stretch away from being right there with everybody else. Well now. It seems like Kansas is going to run away with the big twelve after Baylor who was ranked number two going into the weekend got upset by. Tcu How bad was this for Baylor? It's always interesting right. Like Baylor won every game but one for like two months straight and now all of a sudden last week I think a lot of people are panicking and that happens to a team. Like Baylor which doesn't have the brand recognition of Duke or Kentucky or a Kansas. So in hard times. I think we may be overemphasized Some of their struggles. I think you obviously don't want to continue losing and losing to a team like Tcu is not good For them but this is a team that again played a tissue team that did things that they haven't done in the past made forty five percent of the threes on Saturday against Baylor. They made thirty three percent of their shots from three point. Line before that so that can be more of an anomaly. I think Baylor overall though is one of the best defensive teams in America made the best defensive team not named Kansas. So that's GONNA keep them in every game that they play well one team. That's right up there with Kansas and Baylor is Gonzaga perennial contenders They did lose to. Byu about a week ago but they're still considered favorites to win the WCTC. How good is this Gonzaga team? I think they're really really good me now like I think they're amazing. I just think this is a year where because everyone has been sort of even you get one loss and all of a sudden. Gonzaga gets the whole. You haven't played anybody. And why are you losing you know in the West Coast Conference and I think that's unfair? Byu was a really good team like Byu's go into selection Sunday with maybe a five or six seed. Maybe even better so. There's nothing wrong with losing a road game in that environment to a good team. They have the number one offense in America a flea Petra. Sav is one of the best young players Indian tire country. We would know what mark few the head coach can do. And they've got two losses all year. I think that is one of the best teams in America and I think will prove it wants double a. Tournament starts so most of the rankings have some combination of Kansas Baylor in Gonzaga in the top. Three we'll see how this weekend changes that but after that myron gets pretty interesting. I'm you've got Dayton San Diego state. Did you see that coming up before the season began out like I wish I could lie and say I did? I wish I could be that dude. It was like yeah. I called San Diego State back in October in Dayton. But I didn't I mean like ob top and a Dayton is suddenly this lottery pig. And I don't think anybody saw that Common Dayton on Friday against Davidson Mia. Think about this number. They may ninety six percent of their shots inside the three point. Line Ninety six percent like I don't care if you're playing a high school junior Varsity Team. That's really difficult to do in Dayton. Did that and not only did they do it. They've been doing it Throughout the season just really inefficient offensive team in San Diego State. A team that lost its first game about a week and a half ago. The they've been role as well in their line of people who will say San Diego State doesn't play the competition that the other top teams have faced in college basketball. That's not true. They beat the. Byu Team that just beacons Aga- they beat Creighton. Which I think is the surprise of college basketball naked win at all by thirty one points and they beat Iowa another solid team another Aa tournament team by ten points so the best teams that were thrown at San Diego State. They won those games now. They did lose the UNLV Week ago but beyond that there have been a really really good team and I think in a year like this again. You're not going to run into a team with two lottery. Picks it feels like they can make Iran as well both San Diego state ending

"This is the news in brief from the United Nations. So they 'Lance technology should be banned. Immediately until effective, national or international controls put in place, a u n appointed independent rights expert said, on Tuesday, David Kay, who's the United Nations special rapporteur, on freedom of opinion and expression made the appeal as he prepared to present. His latest report to the Human Rights Council in Geneva, he highlighted that, while states were largely responsible companies appear to be operating without constraint to in a private surveillance industry free for all, according to the special reporter surveillance tools can interfere with human rights from the right to privacy and freedom of expression to rights of association and assembly, religious belief nondiscrimination and public participation. But they are not subject to any effective global, or national control. He said among these special reporters recommendations is an appeal to states to adopt domestic safeguards to protect individuals from UNLV. Awful surveillance in line with international human rights law nearly twenty thousand people have been rescued from the desert in Asia since 2016, after trying to reach North Africa and being abandoned by traffickers. The UN migration agency IOM said, on Tuesday, ten days ago, IOM found more than four hundred migrants in the tenor, a desert in south central Sahara, among them. Seven women and four children in Geneva spokesperson, Joel millman said that, although the migrant roots were not a secret, it was extremely difficult for rescuers to find the migrants whose trucks often breakdown or who are simply abandoned. We know that probably thousands of victims. There remains aren't even evident anymore because they're covered by sand or consumed by animals. We can only rely on luck I would say mostly in the ability to get resources. Marshalled sometimes local authorities can be very helpful. Sometimes resources are really stretched. So it's a big region. And we do our best with the knowledge we get on any given. Any given month in the latest rescue mission. Mr. millman said that migrants had come from fourteen west African countries mainly Guinea, Mali, and Cote d'ivoire of all of those rescued ninety eight percent opted for voluntary return to their countries of origin.

2019 NCAA championship: Virginia wins its first national title
"Like this. Virginia that seventy five seventy three next to going over time. How big is younger. My goodness. Monsters twenty seven hundred Westwood One. Aa radio network hunter coming up big twenty seven points in the Egypt game. Kyle guy had twenty four Virginia hits all twelve free. Throw attempts in the overtime period. And they come away with the title as you heard eighty five seventy seven in OT. They beat Texas Tech the eighth national title game to go to overtime the first since two thousand eight when Kansas beat Memphis the first national title game between two teams that had never previously appeared in the title game since nineteen seventy nine Magic Johnson's Michigan state team against Larry bird's. Indiana state team Virginia wins this one first title game between schools that had previously never wanted title since nineteen Ninety-one UNLV beat Duke, Tony Bennett becoming the ninth active division one coach to win a national title. I think it was a terrific game to see how these. Guys, played the one thing I said to him before in the locker room. I said you guys faced pressure that no team in the history of the game is faced will really all year. But but being down fourteen against garner web. I said, and you did not panic in that moment, and you fought, and you found a way out I said that I think has prepared you for this moment to the handle the pressure or the the intensity of national championship game. And these guys stepped up to me that was it appeared from Istambul to be a high level game. And you know, we scored eighty five that was in that setting. So good stuff. Hey, coach Bennett. Zach peerless Augusta free press there's a picture in your house. You've talked about before these three guys. Jay huff part of that twenty sixteen class. They've seen a lot of things now and their time at you've yet what are the emotions now attached to that picture? And you know, how does this change that picture in the feelings that you'll see when you see it? Yeah. When they came on the recruiting. Visit remember telling them, look, you're. The foundation has been laid by guys, you know, Joe, and Malcolm are here and all the guys went before. And we had one Sommese championships who've been to be lead eight I said, we're asking to build on that foundation. Even at that house on the hardest step. But if you're willing said, we'll take a chance at mentioned, the rocky post just I said, I want guys wanna chance to title fight and see them come in either as young men or boys and grow into men this season. And I'll mention what happened last year that that can only mature you. I don't know of anything else that would allow these guys to build a handle this situation, the playthrough stuff and to have a perspective and poise and resiliencey unless they went through something that hard, and they're very there's really good players. They don't probably get enough credit. Well, I think someone do their town. But they had something different about them collectively. I just one of our themes. I told them before the Auburn game as just bring your two fish and five loaves. It's a story in the bible. And I said it'll be enough. I said it'll it'll be enough for the masses. I said when you guys play the right way, the collectiveness of it takes over. And I've watched it, and I've stepped back, and I've seen this now seen mature through everything. And for them to do what they did, you know and how they've won. It's a great story really ofensive -ly. It seemed as if the Andre took charge there at the end you telling take charge or sometimes it seems like he's trying not. To take. That's you know, Dan regularly. Let's come in that he he I think he grew up in a way in this tournament in the second half of the Auburn game. And definitely and he was getting his shots. But he just he you saw them and that when he puts that into boy, it's he special, but no he trying to get on the ball ties. So good and our players. They understand. He's like all right. We gotta get him the ball in these situations and go to work, and you know, we did call. I'm not sure what the answer the question. We did. Call an action form to hit that three in the corner. And then one time time to great pass. But he yeah. I thought he really showed an aggressiveness that we needed. You. Need your top players to step up and make plays. And he did it on both ends you just speak to one that the poyser guy showed the overtime. And also the the previous games prepare them for that. They didn't seem either out of gas. They didn't to motion in handling the overtime. No. Well, I tell you we we had. Three Saturday, Monday games. We played Duke at home, and then we had to go to Carolina. And I I think I said this in the podium before. But I said this is how it's going to be in the tournament. And this is how we're going to prepare on Sunday. And and we did that every time we had those games, and we did it in the NCAA tournament that day in between and they knew what to expect. And I said you're built for this. You're prepared for this. Because this is what we did. And we started that process in January and that Carol do Carolina weekend. And I said just get after it, and we worked in between a lot of people's walked, actually, I don't know. What people do I just know from my experiences a coach in the Pac ten home important that day in between and how you prepare well prepare well and get after it. And so I think they they stepped in the moment they face pressure through the year through the turnament and all that stuff played into it. And that a lot goes to our strength coach, Mike Curtis. I mean, he has those guys as finely tuned machines. And and they just they work. We were smart at the end of the year with how much rest we gave them and prepare them. It's just a balance. Obviously, it it hit Tony Bennett with the national championship ninth. Active coach for the title for our current ACC coaches, Mike, shefty, ROY Williams, and Jim boeheim being the others Virginia six team to win. Multiple overtime games of the NC double A tournament in route to winning national title there. The first to do. So since era Zona in nineteen ninety seven. Cavs sixty six and six over the last two seasons. Best win percentage in division. One college basketball live crew restated Seth Greenberg, Jay Williams, and Jay Bilas, the every time in the last three games when things looked grim at the end of the game for junior late made plays. It looked grim at the end of regulation in this one when they were down to and then all of a sudden tied Rome drives, the baseline Texas Tech over helps the Audrey hunter. Who was spectacular? He wasn't good. He was spectacular twenty-seven points nine rebounds that three he hit out of the right corner is the biggest reason that Virginia's able to win the game. That was a spectacular shot. It took advantage of one of the very few defensive mistakes that Texas Tech made throughout the game. And they hung in there, and and grand fashioned to have a chance to win at the end. But Virginia made play after play that end of the overtime. They were great didn't miss a free throw were they were outstanding
NCAA Tourney Preview
"Tournament is allegedly underway. Let us bring a man who will be calling many of the games all the way through the national championship Turner sports analyst and somebody we watched play in high school. You're even old now south lakes high school. Let's start with this. I ask you as an analyst Dookie when you watch Zay on. What do you see? Wow. See explosiveness? I see, you know, see almost like a combination of a linebacker who jumps like Vince Carter. Is really nothing we've ever seen before in terms of his explosiveness athleticism. But also how hard he plays and steals activity has energy just off the charts. We're so used to comparing people you really can't compare them because there's really been nobody quite like him. That's how unique Zion. Williamson is all right grant beyond Duke. You've had a chance to study the brackets who do you like beyond the blue devils? I mean who jumps out to you as a team that could could at least get to the final four not further. While there's a lot of teams, and I know a mouse opposed to say this. But I think North Carolina is really talented trouble for that. I can get in trouble for that. So I if anyone says anything I'll just pretend I'm seeing Smith, but but not North Carolina. Roy Williams has done a fantastic job. I do think UVA they've had a lot of setbacks adversity in the tournament. But I do think this is this is Tony Bennett's most talented team. And I think they'll get through and get to the final four. I think Michigan state. I know they're in the same region as Duke, but I I was at the big ten conference tournament last week. I followed them Tom Izzo. This team is just balanced tough. They defend they can score. They really don't have a weakness at all as a sleeper team. I like Texas Tech the best defensive team in the country. They got a kid Jerry Kover who's probably wanted to top five players in college basketball that nobody knows about he's capable as they are. Taking a long run. And I love Florida state. You know, I love what they've done Leonard Hamilton. They won twelve of thirteen games in the regular season. People forget they got to the ACC conference finals loss to Duke. But they have a lot of death in very talented. So there's teams out there. Other than Duke believe it or not that are capable for long run. I'm gonna ask you to put all your old man hat for second. You and I did this a little bit the other night in Chicago during the big ten turnament. Will you go back to that last year? Even when you lost to Arkansas Scotty Thurman shot sorry to bring this up. You had seen your late and teams teams at three or four all Americans seem to time. And when you're watching now played there, but you're watching now this one and done era are the guys that he good. I mean, you look at them and think, yeah, these guys could have played when we did and won something. That's a good question. I think I think I think there's some really talented players and a lot of young talented players. But you know, the difference was you had older players more experienced players who had the opportunity maybe go pro who didn't think that UNLV team in nineteen ninety blue blue out Duke and Denver in the championship game. And you had Stacy Augmon.
