"Shane ross. And i'm a professor of aerospace and ocean engineering at virginia tech. Welcome to the show. It's going to be her. Broadly speaking can you tell me a little bit. About what your areas of interest are. What do you study well. I have a lab that studies of variety of aspects of dynamics and this has dynamics broadly defined so anything that changes over time. Some of our bias has been looking at environmental systems and things moving through the air and the water particularly biological agents. But also i do some first principles modeling of engineering applications related to aerospace. So i know a lot of my audience comes from a machine learning perspective or a data science point of view and perhaps bring this bias. The table where you think. Just give us the data and then we'll go find a model and that can work buying in some contexts. But i know in a lot of the things you study. It's sort of the other way around right. Can you describe the process of modeling from your perspective often. The problems that i've looked at have two things transporting through an environmental fluid. So the atmosphere or some aquatic medium like the ocean or a lake so we take the point of view of typical fluid based transport so how does material move. And if there's anything on top of that like some biological or chemical process happening that just gets added on top of the fluid mechanics. Well the paper. I invited you on to do. A deep dive about is titled beach level. Twenty four hour forecasts of florida. Red tide induced respiratory irritation. So a couple of things to unpack. Maybe we could start with. What exactly is the red tide. Red tide is a name given to the phenomenon that seems to happen. A lot in florida but also throughout the gulf coast and many coast throughout the world it's an algal bloom and it's called are harmful algal bloom because of how it affects people but it it just means that algae have grown to a level that sometimes it's actually visible as red water but the florida red tide. It's not something new. It was first seen first recorded by native americans. Hundreds of years ago something that comes periodically and when it's a high enough levels it can cause respiratory irritation effects but also leads to death of fish. It has a big economic impact along the coast.
"virginia tech" Discussed on NFL: Move the Sticks with Daniel Jeremiah & Bucky Brooks
"Edge. Jeremiah joined by my partner. Bucky brooks block. We are through the folk of the pro days. Man i am good. It's been a been a fast and furious week with the number of days. We had a chance to look at but raleigh month away from the draft. So it's an exciting time. All right we got a big show today. Everybody what's coming up. We'll look the big news talk about which quarterback before on his draft with the third pick. Also you had a little time with one of the top quarterback prospects in this draft class caleb farley so we'll talk about that one on one that you were able to do with him plus we'll talk about some pro day winners you gotta love the winners and losers a day. We'll talk about. Yeah lots of discussion here today. And i think that's where we should kick things off. We had a star studded pro day on wednesday. Took place both at florida and at lsu also notre dame going at the same time but we go down to florida. Were kyle pits. I have missed the second player in the draft book. I know we've talked about him forever. This is a match up nightmare. This is a unique talent and somebody that put that on display here at the pro day. You have to leave on display the numbers right here. Six five five as to forty five four or or forty time and when you think about him. Dj tied and he's really jumble wide receiver and we've seen these jumbo wide receivers that have gone at the top of the board on draft day have actually been dynamic and dominant players. You go all the way back to who the jaws. Aj rain and some of those guys. So he's a fantastic weapon. Someone is going to be excited to have an opportunity to play with them looking at it as scouting report right here. You see the speed. The ball skills that was on display at the pro day. The only thing needs work. You'll fall off blocks. But i thought he improved as a blocker from twenty nineteen to twenty twenty. But let's jon the video here. I can show you on fall tape what you love when you study. Kyle pits first of all the work and against top tier guys. He can play through contact. We'll talk about that. At the line of scrimmage as well as at the top of the route the adjustment on the low ball. how about that one. You can go up and get it. This is more difficult. Play.

Fighting for Expanded Brady Background Checks
"Everybody to another episode of red blue and brady now brought to you on fridays as always. I'm your host dj. And i'm a co host kelly. We may have released a unfortunately we are still working from home. I for one am greeting you from increasingly cluttered corner my apartment. I refuse to show on camera. Kelly where are you exactly. It looks fancy. it looks nice I'm recording from the illustrious. Dining room cable recording studios. It's very exclusive. I was going to say. I haven't gotten an invite so. Yeah you know. It's pretty elite recording studio. We buy got a couple of grammy's nobody'll dr fauci is the only one who's allowed to approve gas to tant basically. Yeah while i am very excited to talk. Today's gas Unfortunately also not in person who wants upon a time. I actually got to do a four hour in person interview it if you can imagine a time where such a thing was actually physically possible. If i try really hard. I think i can but it is pretty unmasked more right now right. It feels like a completely different life but luckily at least digitally we get to talk with colin goddard christian heine chris brown and stephanie abrams. All of whom are these great gun. Violence prevention advocates and in particular colin christian and stephan have something in common but i think our listeners may not expect. And you're not gonna tell us. I am absolutely not gonna tell you they have to listen. How dare i jerk. Yes we're going to their butt together. Just some hands were discussing the passage of hr eight and fourteen forty six in the us house of representatives. And we're gonna tackle questions like what are these bills. What do they do. And what is even the point of a background check anyway. Yeah and i know. Some of our listeners are with from day one and so they may be like. Oh i totally know about all these bills and background checks which is awesome. But i think with this episode even if you know all the background checks needs bills it's still going to be really eliminating compensation so definitely station. Hi everyone on. Chris brown on the president's of brady. Hey everyone my name. is stephanie. Abrams i am the executive council member of team enough as well as a a worker debris offices the team fellow when i'm also the national chapter coordinator years well so i wear a lot hats team enough but i love the voice of the youth and i think it's very important especially right now under current political climate ear. I'm christian heine vice-president policy your brady and then call in our loan on brady person on this podcast but you. You were once brady. He's brady at heart. You can say. I know once your winter you're never out island is calling goddard. I'm a survivor. Two thousand seven shootings. Virginia tech former team brady member and a gun of prevention advocate. Thank you so much for all. You've done any work. Amazing job now to and water access right so it's cool really cool job. I feel like in a lot of ways. Similar to engaging a constituency in america that feels like. They've been ignored that their voices aren't being heard. And you know working alongside them to fight to make change. So it's in a of ways very similar to the work at brady and take a lot of the learnings and experiences in carrying it forward and look at the whole workout station in there. Is that a peleton. You gotta pelivan peleton brutal used a mirror now mayor much come see me. I got the. Let's get peleton. Let's go man. You're you're peddling these things. Let's all right. We gotta we can look at each other track record and motivating each other awesome about your pilots on obsession christian concerns me a little bit. You're peleton pusher and it's concerning ballots today so. Let's talking about biking talking about bills. Chris just to start us off. Can you even break down at a very basic level would brady background. Check is sure so the radi background check system was put into effect about twenty seven years ago and a few days and change and when it was i adopted it was in response to actually the nineteen sixty eight gun control act which required background checks to be conducted so this is something that already was part of the federal law that there is no mechanism to ensure that there was real recordkeeping or even technology to make sure that could happen in the brady law. Put into effect this apparatus or sought to to ensure that every federally licensed firearms dealer or f. f. l. was required by law to conduct a background check and use technology that was adopted by the government to conduct that check and not just requires a look at a database that includes records criminal history at cetera about prohibited

"Minus biology. And i'm a student in the system. Softer research group virginia tech. I'm broadly interested in building distributed systems. And i've been doing that since my master's and my phd degrees or the past five years. Broadly i focus on building reliable and high-performance distributed systems very specifically i work on this topic of consensus and agreement protocol van idress different properties of them such as scale ability and resiliency to fox previously also worked on addressing the performance aspects of certain taxes of consensus call the leaderless consensus protocol. Which i believe is the topic of today's discussion. Yeah could you draw that distinction. We've talked a little bit about paxos on some episodes but had a very leader paxos biased to that. I guess what does it look like to leaderless. Paxos the main reason you would want a leader in paxos protocol is because you won't agreement among a collection of processes it could be notes that are spread around in a wide area network or it could be in the same local area network and important a problem. The leader saws is the type of conflicts because if you allow anybody to propose values than they might not reach agreement quickly in fewer communication on. That is critical. So that is why classically a paxos protocols have been proposed the leader so that you can have domination in fewer communication steps decision can be made in. Let's say to communication steps. However what differentiates leader less paxos is that you remove the requirement for leader and introduce a different mechanism so that even without a leader. These different notes can agree on a same set of values that the agree and execute as part of their statement. Do we have to give anything up to go. Leaderless we lose eventual consistency or. Yeah what's the cost of this consistency vice. We are still able to get leaner is ability. We don't lose anything per se. But however the protocol itself gets more complex and more nuanced and subtle paxos itself is a complex protocol to understand dissect however these littlest protocol because of more addition to the original access protocol can get more complicated. You'd mentioned scale. Ability is one of the interesting things to study in these consensus protocols. Most of the papers and research. I did learning these things. We'll give me examples of like you know quorums of five or seven nodes. Which of course are great right. That's the way to learn it but in reality it's internet and cloud scale. Maybe we'd like to have orders of magnitude more nodes. What are some of the scale. Ability challenges you bump into down that path you mean. In terms of leila's protocols are in just in terms of consensus. For god's will either way maybe we can stick to your precise work or if you think it's valuable to contrast it with the more generic case that works to terms scale ability in the crush fault tolerant space before i get deep into cash phone torrens. Let me specify a little bit on the fault models themselves. So typically people work in the crash fault donald space if they're building consensus for a single organization use case data center use case fair people deeply into databases and stuff like that and the assumption in the crash. Fault tolerant space is that the machines can simply crush but they cannot behave maliciously in the sense that when they reach agreement they don't behave in a way as to deviate the consistency of the values. That is being agreed on. This is in contrast to the byzantine fault tolerant agreement problem which addresses a different set of use cases like permission blockchain allegations that require much more scale obliterated then that is required in the trash falter spaced typical even people talk about the fda talk about scale ability to fifty or hundred or more than hundred up to thousands soft notes but in crush on space. People typically talk scale ability up to five or seven notes and that is for very specific reason. And that is that consensus protocols. In general they tend to be very expensive in coordination and the performance tend to get much worse as you scale to higher number of notes and for blockchain applications. If you look at the absolute numbers the performance of the f. d. protocols for blockchain applications are much lower than safety protocols. The reason we stick to a few notes in the safety protocol is because they're not other mechanisms that use like shotting and stuff like that in order to achieve scale ability in a data center sitting.
THIS REP'S #1 SUPERPOWER TO BECOME #1 IN ENTERPRISE SALES
"Carly welcome to the show was way getting started. Gives background on yourself. Yeah employed think things for having me. Brian I started out in sales about four years ago I started at memory blue. Which i don't know if you're familiar with memory blue or not but they basically breeding grounds for Inside sales professionals. And i got fortunate enough to work with a lot of technology clients And help them with their inside sales strategy so over time. I ended up Building a lot of really close relationships with those technology clients before i moved onto my new gig element analytics where any sales have to work with Enterprise industrial companies for data management so. That's a quick synopsis. what i do. What was it like. I do know memory blue. And that market is isn't it yeah I have such a close and special relationship. With with mark and chris and tommy and limit he might as well and i wouldn't trade it at all. It was really decision But as most folks no you just have to evaluate where you are in your career before you move on. And i wouldn't be where i am without them at all. So i'm very grateful for the ten minutes had there and i still am really close with everybody there But it was tempering a chapter. What was that like getting out of college and then being thrown into that. Because that's kind of the boy. Yeah it really is. It really is so. When i was in college i went to virginia tech and i studied public relations and i thought i wanted to get into marketing. And what i noticed when i was interviewing or even applying jobs you know. Nobody wanted anybody without experience. You had to have a year or change to get a job. And i stumbled across memory blewett career. They were the only company. I had time to speak with had the career fair and they gave me a chance and to be honest. I don't think. I realized i was going to be cold calling. I don't have you know friends or family and sale so it was really new experience for me But when i was younger I'm a triplet. So i have two sisters competitive growing up and i really found my place at memory. Blue and you know was a transition for the first few weeks but it was so much fun and the environment is very competitive. And that's something that i carry with me today. Was it awkward at first you. You'd never done it before you never knew who done before it was awkward. You know. I remember the first guy the answer the phone i remember his name. I remember exactly how confused he when. I called him. Because i was equally confused. Yeah exactly and over time you get used to that But it was very uncomfortable. And something that i had on my desk and i still think about you know whenever i try news. Get comfortable with the uncomfortable. And i think that holds true in every self-sufficient and a lot of things in life so and how long did it take you to get used to it or did you ever get used to it. I think about two months. You know it's funny i. I'm a big people person. I love to talk to people But talking on the song was never a thing that i enjoyed. I wasn't the type of person to call home all the time in school But once they started working memory blue all they all. I was doing most talking to people on the phone. And now i love it And especially in the world today when everything's zoom or you're talking own all day long. I think it's it's great cool.

"And everyone's favorite pizza and Coke assed today tastes like front row seats role. Like cushions and popcorn and counting. The seconds today tastes like a slice of the action. We belong here and now I just have never tasted this good. Coca Cola together tastes better. Nothing but net. The fighting Irish fight on this is Notre Dame men's basketball. Time now for the serious exam keys to the game. First of all on defense. The Irish have to defend with intensity, but one of the things they want to continue doing is not fouling. It has been a Notre Dame tradition under Mike Brey. They just don't follow whole lot and again this year, Notre Dame is leading the NC double a In fewest files per game at 12.3. That is particularly important tonight because Virginia Tech is second in the A. C C in free throw attempts they've taken 290 so far this season. They average 22.3 free throws per game and they make 15.7 per game so you don't want to send them to the line. They are very good at drawing fouls. Rebounding is also very, very important. Virginia Tech averages just over 10 offensive rebounds per game. Another name, defended the first shot pretty well in the first game between these two teams earlier this month in Blacksburg. But they gave up 16 offensive rebounds to the Hokies, which led to 15 points. So you have to rebound and you have to be aware as well. Three point shots. Virginia Tech is a lot like Notre Dame in the way that they play offense, and they're very gifted offensively. Other guys can score on just about all three levels. Tech is third in the A, C C and three point shots.

Pandemic Advances Scientific Understanding Of Viruses' Air Transmission
"Up, we're taking a look back at some of 20 twenties major events and one of the most remarkable scientific advances this year came in our understanding of how respiratory viruses can be transmitted from one person to another through the air. Krone virus pandemic obviously made this an urgent question. And NPR's Nell Greenfield Boys reports that old scientific ideas quickly got thrown out of the window. For decades. The prevailing idea about respiratory viruses was that some were airborne, and some just weren't so back in January, Thea understanding of how viruses spread through the air. Was really primitive and incorrect. Lindsay Mars, a researcher at Virginia Tech, who studies virus transmission, she says textbooks and research papers said an airborne virus was something like measles. It could be breathed out in tiny particles called aerosols that hang in the air. Those aerosols contractual long distances from room to room. All of that was very different from non airborne viruses like flew in the common cold. Those were thought to spread through coughs and sneezes, big droplets that travel just a few feet. Maher says. This whole simplistic picture was just wrong. There were very small number of people in the world. I think who really understood at that time how viruses spread through the air, and these people realize that the new coronavirus might be airborne at short distances. That is if people talked or saying the virus could be in small particles, as well as the big droplets and coughs and in a poorly ventilated space. These particles could build up as the Corona virus outbreak took off. These experts started making a lot of noise about this and people paid attention. Maher says She thought it would take 30 years for more nuanced ideas about airborne transmission to gain widespread acceptance. But it's happened in months. It's been pretty wild to see airborne transmission of viruses become Big news. Scientific studies came superfast Josh than Tar. Pia is a researcher at the University of Nebraska Medical Center. We're not even 12 months in and We know things about this virus that you know, we don't know about some viruses that we've had around for decades. His medical center took care of some of the first people with Corona virus in the United States. Santo Pia recalls standing at the end of their beds with a device that collected air while they talked or breathed his lab, then analyzed the tiny airborne droplets. Looking for the genetic signature of the Corona virus. We were getting positives more than one positive in the air samples, and I can't say the words that I said But you're kind of broadcast this, but I was shocked signs of the virus were in such tiny particles. He worried that nothing less than the most protective masks could stop it. Soon, though, studies showed that even basic cloth masks were able to reduce the amount of virus that gets out into the air and suddenly mask wearing became routine sent our P A was floored and how ventilation became part of the normal daily conversation. You know how well ventilated is the space shouldn't be spending time inside or outside. You know how much all these things it's changed so much about the way we view the world. The question is, Will this be a lasting change? Donald Milton is a research Teacher at the University of Maryland School of Public Health. He spent years showing how better ventilation in dorms or offices is associated with a lower risk of respiratory disease transmission, he says. We need to figure out engineering solutions to improve the safety of indoor spaces like getting better ventilation, using air filters, even using special lights up by a room ceiling to disinfect circulating air. I want to see us understand how it is that you can make her Restaurant, a safe place to be during flu season and during a pandemic. I think it's doable, but he's afraid that once vaccines get this virus in check, people will lose interest at least until the next pandemic. Nell Greenfield Boys NPR news
The worst is over for the travel industry, but expect a 'spotty' recovery

The tourism industry won't recover quickly from the damage, says Virginia Tech business professor Mahmood Khan will become a landmark, he says, would be travelers or a different kind of clientele. Now empathy. And patience will be the two most important things that all service providers have to take into account whether it is travel industry or restaurant industry.
Patriots at Dolphins: Alain Poupart breaks down Miami's running game
"The Houston was really the only team I would say that actually through on the Patriots effectively this year and DeShaun Watson besides Russell Wilson all the way back in week two thousand. I am curious, you know, the Dolphins do they have a running game. Do you think that they can do that with because I don't see it, but I don't want to I don't want to be biased over here. Either way. I mean, there are 30 second in the league in rushing yards per attempt. They were missing their top three rushing leaders last Sunday against the Chiefs. What's a be perfectly blunt? None of them are impact players Matt breida came off the covid-19. Wednesday obviously he'll be back. When he hasn't made much of an impact after coming over from the 49ers in the in the trade Myles Gaskin is on the Cove in list and he's a nice story as a second-year seventh-round pick who laughs basically got a cup of coffee in terms of playing time this year and he basically became their feature back and he's got some ability. But in a in an Ideal World Cup gasket is your backup is now your future back in this is what the Dolphins are dealing with our offensive line. Also a good story much better than was last year. They're starting three rookies with Austin Jackson am handsome in kinloch. but when you start three rookies pretty much ninety-nine percent of the time you're going to go through some growing pains and their offensive line while again exponentially better than what last year is still not great. Let's say it's worked in like but they're not a whole lot of big old being open in the running game and you don't have running backs off will make a lot of things happen on their own. So there's a reason again there there are thirty-second in the NFL in rushing yards per attempt and complicating matters. This week is they have injury issue is that wide receiver position where they also have a lot of players but not a whole lot of impact players. So you mentioned might get sick you earlier I believe and now he's got a shoulder injury where we can't get any Clarity from Ryan Flores as to his status for this week. It's all we'll see is working on all that. But if you saw the injury really really hard to Envision him playing cards Devante Port Parker pulled a hamstring or had a hamstring injury against the Chiefs you came out in the first app did not return. He practiced on a limited basis Wednesday, so hopefully play it but then if he plays this carrying a hamstring injury. And then so who else do you have left after that now you're looking at your team Grant who is more of a return specialist and and then their shuttle pass receiver gadget Play type of player on offense. He's also got a hamstring injury that knocked him out of Chiefs game. And then the rest of the wide receiver Corps is rookie limbo Junior who played multiple positions at Kentucky. You have a Mack Hollins who want to sign as a special-teams standout, which he is. He's very going to special teams but more so than the receiver and then you have one of the guys being talked up being able to make a major contribution as Isaiah Ford who you may remember from his three weeks with the Patriots after the acquired immune to trade in his office. I knew he was he didn't play it down for the Patriots. I knew how long is not going to last year when he got up here and he said it is freezing. I need a winter coat, you know, what am I going to do? And I just said look, I'm sure he's a fine football player. I'm sure he could make an impact on the team that needs wide receiver help but this guy does not seem like he wants to be in New England right now. Well, no, but he plays at Virginia Tech. So I'm so he's not like dead. He's from Jacksonville plant in Virginia tag, so it's not like he's not he's never been the call before and the thing about Isaiah Ford and then it was often friends are thinking. Well, Isaiah Ford is going to come and rescue the the passing game and that like life. He's a really really really nice good. And he might be in the league for ten years because he's got a great attitude. He works hard doesn't see anything. He's not an impact player. And right now this is what they have their wide receiver Corps. If she doesn't play they have nobody who's going to really scare the Patriots defense and if you you throughout the city also doesn't play. I mean who makes things happen on this office on Sunday? So that that's a big
Early signing day: Latest on the nation's top 25 college football recruits
"It's signing day part one in college football with the early signing period. now which. I'm sure coaches love because they championship games and bowl games. All that other stuff. It is obviously been a very busy time for the uc coaching staff. And a big reason why is putting together a twenty three players signing class or recruiting class. I should say for the the class of two thousand and twenty one during the early signing period we are obviously huge fans of bear journal. Dot com chad. Brendel comes on this show all the time. He'll be with us tomorrow at three forty five but because it is sunday i wanted to bring in brent young who also covers. Uc's sports and pretty heavy recruiting emphasis for bearcat journal dot com. He is on twitter at. Excuse me at be young sports and He's with us this afternoon. I appreciate the time. What should i what what stands out most about this. This particular group of players the bearcats have inked You know what really stands out to me. The most i often travel on. It's just kind of the debt that that numerous positions the the high level of talent. It might not have the the top players like you know. You have last year with with prater and jean thomas and jane thompson. The four stars really really kind of flooding the top of the list. But what was really shown and this one is just the death and the amount of talent that they're able to bring in not really clear that you would expect kind of just be headliners for each class but just the amount of players that are highly rated at each physician. You're going to have numerous players. They're going to have big impact next year special teams but more further down the line right. Give me one or two players. That if i look at this bunch and i'm trying to find a kid who's gonna make an immediate impact year one or two stands out. You don't have to go with i. Brian threats i think first off. He's one of the seven early enroll. East coming in is going to be a player out of you. Know w kaufmann there and the clubs. They're gonna come in and be a player that wants to get on the field no matter what so. You're going to see him on special teams quite a lot. You're going to see him trying really find his role on the defensive side. You know obviously defense is going to have a humorous players that are going to have to be funneled out and figured out who's going to be replacing all the seniors that are currently on the roster. So yeah i think threats comes in. He has a knack for the ball defensively. He has the ability to make big plays. You know you play offense as well as the high school level but really defensively special teams where. I'm expecting him to kind of have almost an immediate impact and then outside of that You know give me. Give me an office alive because it seems. Recently we have causes there possibly had numerous true freshman. Kind break that that that you know. Talk to on the depth chart. And i think that you look at a player like luke collins where who could step in at the tackle position is one of the better fruits that program history for the bearcats. And i think he's gonna have a chance to really kinda shy know now. Land is gonna have a chance to really shine but and then of course you look at the depth as i've constantly mentioned it's going to be hard for some of these players really crack the rotation because now you see we've been able to turn you know one as one bs and constant we have players available at each position. So really specialties. Would be the place to watch out for. Maybe i'd a toxic to watch out for who could have an impact on kickoff teams kickoff return team things of that sort. There are seven kids from the greater cincinnati area around up the kids from from From from from this class from the greater cincinnati area. yeah. I talked about Gmc defensive player of the year. It of seems like that's been that the bearcats have been able to do is bring in big time defensive players from the great cincinnati area and that first off. He has a fantastic a phenomenal nickname. And it's the godfather dante. I mean better. Carry that with him and he'd better have it all the way throughout his playing career. Whether it is in the nfl anywhere he goes. Dante corleones the godfather of course from rain high school. He's going to be a cog in the middle. You shake his hand and he just completely engulfs your hand. It makes you feel small just a bowling ball of a player. And he kinda of exact situation as i say of the death i mean. He's he's the second lowest rated player in this entire recruiting class. But you've accused. Gmc defensive player of the year. you get sacks. he's going to be a big shopper. Upfront i mean forced. You gotta mentioned the land fickle. That really great story about him is is of course he. He sat down at the dinner table with his father. And he said you know data. I think i'm gonna be a bearcat and and we've said no. I don't accept that i need a little bit more. You know force behind that. And that's you know he said okay came back days later and i'm sure he fought as much force as possible and You know land is going to be a player. That i think is surprised. Because he's got the talent that his dad has of leeward hours another great flare out of princeton. I mean you just keep on going up and down the list and then of course you know you got ice. Jarman is a good outside player. And i already talked about mouth glenn. This is just going to be another one of those. The state of cincinnati is what they call it and and keeping hometown heroes around the greater cincinnati area. They're all gonna big impact on the team. All right look. I'm not gonna ask you to be an expert on every recruiting class in the country but there are folks at twenty. Four seven are relentless. Put this class up against other competitors in the put this class up against their competitors among a group of five schools. And then tell me where would stack up or how would stack up to even some of the schools that we frequently talk about them. Trying to recruit among power five schools. Right you know first off forty second in the country. You might know that at that and think okay. That seems like a high number but you break it down. This is pop. G five recruiting class top class in the afc. You know an average of eighty five point one that is second behind what last year. The eighty five point three Just just the amount of average ratings throughout the entire class you know the groups that break higher than what auburn has brought in this year. What virginia tech has brought in what you know an iowa state who is magically better than the bearcats in the college football playoff hole which. I'm sure you've completely broke down but higher than in iowa state hires than a ucla arizona state tcu. So you know there was about twenty power five twenty to twenty five power. Five software says up bearcats actually had a higher national rank. Nance so you're looking at you. Know one of the best britain the best group of five but one of the better entire classes and the and the nation he look at next year. Obviously a really early start but this is a fantastic roof. And they're going to be you know like i said it's going to be a couple years down the line. You're gonna start calling out these players by name and say wow. This is a big time player from that twenty. Twenty one

Nothing whatever unprecedented. Tom Ewing is a history professor at Virginia Tech, and he cites eerie similarities between now in 1918. Back then, some communities required masks for voters and large public gatherings had to be canceled. But the situation wasn't politicized in the way that it is now. When people disagreed with the policy, they didn't say. Was because someone so with a Democrat, a Republican, and the role of the federal government was much less significant. Voters listened mostly to state and local health officials and didn't turn to the president for leadership. That just was not the role of the president.

I am Steph so I'm actually a third-year PhD student wage. Virginia Tech currently I am in the department of human nutrition foods and exercise and I study a varying cancer metabolism so very much a basic background, but I got my start at a very small arts college called Emory and Henry College. That's where I did my bachelor's degree and got that in biology and then it came to Virginia Tech actually for my Master's and kind of switch lanes. So I actually did my Master's in community nutrition and dietetics. So I did a lot of like all across the research spectrum of doing like this basic plant genetic science and my undergrad moved into my Master's Degree, which was very much community-based and learning like dietetics and applications and and standards of care within Healthcare and then I kind of combined my two loves of both nutrition with Biology to pursue my PhD at Virginia Tech as well in the same department, but I switched gears to go more like cellular molecular track. So right now like I said, I'm a third-year PhD student. Hopefully we'll be doing my my name. Asian proposal pretty soon. So I'll actually be a PhD candidate hopefully within the next few months, but I'm also got an Instagram about almost two years ago. It'll be two years in December, I believe so I actually got on Instagram at the at the suggestion of science Sam which I'm sure some listeners may be familiar with science Sam is an amazing science communicator and Neuroscience. She's been doing a lot of information about covid-19 Ali and she's been a really great support system in a really great person to follow and kind of look up to and then the science communication community. So I had actually been talking to her for my personal account that I have and talking about like science communication and accessibility as well. So we're accessibility ties into my story is when I came to Virginia Tech. I actually I worked as a braille transcriber and a tactile Graphics designer and the accessible Technologies office at Virginia Tech. So what when I originally started my account, it was a combination of doing science computer. Station but also teaching people how to make their information more accessible. So I kind of started in that area and eventually kind of brought in more of my nutrition background as well. So actually educating people about nutrition in the science of nutrition because that's really where my expertise lies and then also at the same time talking to people like Health Care Providers and other science communicators and other people who use Instagram to Market and like get themselves out there and educate on how they can make their communication more accessible So within that as well, I also teach a class called Health counseling is currently averaging a text. So I kind of bring all of my different experiences and I have the nutrition that I'm actually doing I had the science and I'm doing every day in the lab. I have the accessibility that I've worked in before as well as my life experience being an educator in the classroom and online and my my account has really expanded throughout all of those different things. I always joke on my account that I'm super multi passionate and it's because I had These different areas. I really want to come together in my account. And so that's that's really how I started and where I've gone from there in the two years. I've had my account

This was Monte Virginia Tech in the Sweet Sixteen. You're here outplayed Duke period, they outplayed do they play. Here's my play to and blow it Leith list. Two shots back to back. The could've won the game. I thought they it was they played as well as they're going to play. And if you're if you are just going to call anyone that touches ion for foul and let him literally stiff arm his way through the lane thousand off a call. I I don't have a problem with most of the non call stuff except for when he's literally pushing off they called that same thing on Virginia Tech. They called a push on important. I had hold on. And they let this fucking. Meanwhile, Bill Raftery is literally sucks. They're literally orgasm ING all over the place about Diane. All. Duke. Fuck do this team is not like they are not that good. It is weird. They're not a good team attack is not a national championship basketball team. And neither is UCF for that matter, and they played this team down to the end, and it came down to UCF, maybe Ziad as you get the win. You never fucking. I've never seen like what? So you can review this hook nonsense now. Yeah. But wins ion goes by you and throws throws the wicked elbow. Why why is that not a I'm not going to get bitter? It and say that was the difference in the game. Kinda kinda was the difference in the game. But I'm not going to be better say it was the difference in the game is different. And the game was the they ran the perfect play. And he just I think he didn't wanna throw it down because he was so worried he didn't wanna fuck it up. The guy was to open and he should have. He probably should've went glass almost well, he's also retarded because they put more. Time back on the clock had one point one. He could have actually dunked it. Yeah. You couldn't. He was worried to mess thinking he's still catching catching point one. Second. I think the I think it's hard to get down on a kid for trying to get rid of the. I mean, one point one second sure you had more time also kind of happened to the perfect dude in terms of his career arc Virginia Tech super talented super maddening he'd been playing great. He was actually the one guy that was giving I on trouble defense. There was like a segment where? For back and forth on the same play. And this is what what I mean. Like, I okay towards the end Virginia Tech did step out of bounds. They miss that. But did they? I mean, I think that that about I think it was conclusive it wasn't enough to overturn. But you just watch that re watching par replay. I thought oh shit. He stepped out about conclusively. No. That's what I feel. Feudal evidence at one point territor kudos. I'm he's really growing on me. He goes he goes, you know, what reset second down? It was a it was a great dig college basketball. Just like he's just here. Like what the fuck? I'm a football guy. What are you having me do right now? Well, anyway, this segment we're like. Okay. Who had the best game for Duke? What's? Yeah. I was gonna say fucking the guy was injured. He's I on. So Barrett drives. Barrett. Drives to the best of the Virginia. Tech defenders stand straight up the Barrett initiates the contact, and I thought it should have been a no call miss and on that same possession. That was call Phalle makes two free throws. This is like six minutes left at four minutes left in the second half and on that same possession for Virginia. Tech Robinson drives the ball down the lane, and they don't call anybo- any founding clearly gets more contact than what they call it on the Duke side those against that game bidder.

But like sleepy said I at home Florida state's been dynamite, especially with a low spread here. I think we're buying floor state. A little oak mind the Knowles failed to cover the number three straight games where they still won ten of their last eleven. So I like that. I think Virginia Tech is going to be a little overrated in the marketplace. After the Duke upset prior to that they had only covered for their previous thirteen games full agreement for me like on four to state, minus two four any closing thoughts. AJ know what you mentioned in the lines. And and how you know when we all three like it. And it's it it's still, you know, a best bet for one of us. I I think that was the case with North Carolina last week and you had that number at five and a half. But that number opened at four and a half and was at four. So I now I mean, maybe you you may be onto something with it. But I think on this one. I that's kind of it's the number that I was expecting you to send over. So normally when I get those numbers, I'll send you a tax and be like, what are you? Are you sure about that number or or was this number? Did you expect to come in higher? But yeah, that's the number. I expected I I think that's probably a pretty solid number there. All right again. Recapping best bet h Hoffman going music lists. I I will not be doing the same in case. You're wondering where my best bet is. It's actually the final game. We're going to discuss I went off the board here on a Thursday almost did. Yeah. It's going to begin that time, I mean conference sermon. And now that I'm thinking about it. And I and this shows you guys we don't add it because I'm doing a little brainstorming here. I don't know how we're going to be doing podcast after this week every day. I think about that. And maybe just just some general thoughts, you know, sleeper teams in particular. Conferences. But obviously with games happening every single day you have short turnarounds as far as the lines being posted. That's awfully tough to do. We can't do one projecting Ford because we don't have the results. So we might just be doing some general conference. Overall, thoughts to talk with our J on that one. Double like, Florida state, minus the four at home. Best bet AJ Hoffman Florida state that is a Tuesday night game. Best bet for AJ on Florida's state staying on Tuesday night. Number four Kentucky on the road. At ole miss will call the line Kentucky a six point road favorite. And what do, you know, a dumb another game with a double like, I'll eat it off here. I like Kentucky minuses six dominated the series nine straight wins. They've covered six of the last seven against the rebels and my number one factor main Kentucky's off their worst performance since the opener when they got crushed by Duke. They went on the road to Knoxville got their teeth kick down their throat in happens. I. I like Tennessee and that one so I wasn't overly surprised. Of course. I didn't expect a nineteen point loss. But I'm not surprised at the Tennessee handle them. I mean Kentucky shot thirty two percent from the field. Their worst Mark of the entire season. So far sometimes you have one of those nights when it comes to hoops. You know, I wonder energy level missile be fired up Kentucky's in town. But they played three straight close games. The and you gotta be honor percent. If you're going to pay what I believe is going to be very motivated Kentucky team. So I'll take the Wildcats bounceback spot for them. Gimme Kentucky like minus six. What say you AJ Hoffman? Yeah..

I wanna like North Carolina and the reason because I think eventually light bulbs going on. Here's my concern about North Carolina North Carolina have anyone who makes a play for someone else. Now think about that Kobe easier for anyone Koby white still learning the play that position. He's probably Kenny Williams is he make the game easier for anyone. And like the one thing about Virginia Tech is Virginia Tech those guys make plays for each other. Are they paying touches on a bounce? And they get the ball move defense transitional important, obviously have blacks, you get some foul trouble. They're in trouble. Get what I'm going to switch up. I'm gonna go with. Yup. Know.

"virginia tech" Discussed on The College Draft with Ross Tucker
"Line. So if he's not starting because they like these other guys more, you'll be able to hold up a little bit better and he does compete in the run game. Then that will go a long way with me if he just looks like he's a non-participant in the run game. I will be a little bit worried that being said, I mean that first step, his accelerate his ability to exceleron running the hoop is rare like that. There are a couple of clips that I've seen where you know he's just he's able to win with that. First step turn the corner, and then just like a race car at top speed just fly around the hoop to the quarterback is really, really impressive. Greg McElroy from ESPN just posted a shot yesterday from this game to where he's able to win inside. And to me, like if you've got the ability to win both outside and inside a tackle, doesn't know which way you're going. I mean, you could speak to that like, that's when you've won as as as a pass rusher. If you've got the ability to win both ways at a high level, you've got the speed rush, and then he's got a wicked spin inside spin move and newly. That's all you need. If you free any, you know, it helps toyed Freenet surprising power to, but really if you're just fast you an inside spin move and you get enough power that you really put in off at the tackle in a bad spot and to your point the Notre Dame Virginia Tech game as well. You mentioned Jerry Tillery. They were disappointed in him. I could tell when I was there for in the spring game a couple of years ago, but he's gotten a lot better. I thought he would end up on the offense of line, but he's gotten better. The other guy that stood out to me again, watching that game. I think he actually is draft eligible. I don't think it'll happen. I want you to check out Damon Hazelton the wide receiver from Virginia Tech at some point, really impressive. Physically, he's from Baltimore was like a five, ten running back who went to ball state. And now he's like six, three to fifteen wide receiver head a big true freshman year at ball state. So big that he's like I'm transferring. And now he's clearly Virginia Tech. Receiver. I'm thought that was pretty impressive. I was at the Fordham Georgetown game, which is funny because Bill Polian was there because his granddaughter goes to Fordham. So we were talking about four forty minutes a tight end. That's pretty good. Georgetown has a defensive lineman, Christian Tate, who's a junior who is hill end up getting a shot. He's a three technique. I think all the way they thought maybe even a fullback. He's a little salt off like six foot two, two, probably six one to eighty five. But he reminds me of like three technique defensive tackle, but Fordham has a tight end is as right, and he had three really, really nice catches where he used tremendous body control number one for Fordham. So that's kind of my my FCS scouting report of the week. What about the news about Miami wide receiver? Amman, Richard really, really stinks, just Just terrible terrible. I and. look the kid's been battling a bunch of injuries the last couple of years and we didn't. We haven't heard anything about the neck, but you know, I think it was a hamstring he's dealing with this year. Last year was ankle and knee stuff. He burst onto the scene as a freshman and was so so talented and I went back and watched this film last year. And even though he missed a bunch of time with injuries, you just saw the talent there. I mean, it was a big kid who could run you showed flashes route one or super competitive. Great. Blocker really just showed a lot of urgency with everything he did, whether it was as a route runner going up eating at the catch point. There were some drops. There were some inconsistent play and the production wasn't always there, especially over the last year and change, but this kid had loads of talent. So obviously the health is most important. I'm glad that they caught the condition before it became even more disabling, but certainly terrible news from the. What about some other guys you've watched? I've got Akron at UB on Saturday at noon on CBS sports network, which is convenient..

"The next play would be a gadget because Ben Rothlisberger couldn't really pass. So they would have Hines, ward Antwan Randle. El just go out there and play backyard football, and they call it a gadget play. And that name lasted for thirteen years. And now it's changed now every gadget plays the Phillies special sponsored by. Yes, also worse worth asking for juniors, the least reliable state in the country. Oh, yeah. Virginia Tech Old Dominion which you know we brought on the classic rebel rebel loves nothing more than to tweet about a big school playing a small school in how much the big school had to pay the small Virginia Tech quarterback went out. But yeah, that was awesome. That Old Dominion. That's all that's a once in a lifetime for if you're an Old Dominion person, which they're not. Coach, the classic like it was my wife, my two sons beating Virginia, like highlights in my life. Yeah, order Tatra Jack. Yeah. You know what those coaches have like a little upper hand getting off the bus to go into the stadium to to play like a big team like that when their neighbor is a, hey, just reminder, this guy, this coach that you're about to play against, he didn't recruit. You didn't want you. He didn't recruit. That's how Jayme you did that to Virginia Tech back in two thousand eleven. You guys are just doesn't twelve. Yeah, he hasn't come to your to your living room. Yeah. So now now the list of teams that you don't wanna schedule if you're a division one school is Appalachian state. Yeah, and odu. Yeah, there it is in Hank brings up a great point. Virginia loss to sixteen seed Virginia Tech loss Old Dominion port St. is UVA football. Good. No, okay. But they've, they've won me money. The last two. All right. Let's back in then. We'll know not. Sorry. Chris, we'll do our who's back and then we'll do football guy the week. So for who's back I didn't write down who's back so I might as well just start with it. Tiger Woods. Tiger Woods is all the way pack he won Dettori championship. I don't is that the torch is the tour champion fuse that he didn't win the championship of the PGA tour the FedEx. But here's here's why this moment was special because NFL Sunday dominates everything right? But Tiger Woods still was able to break through to anyone who's even watching football who doesn't even care about golf, knew the Tiger Woods was doing this and knew the tire woods was winning for the first time in forever tug and knew the Tiger Woods had like the galleries that were following him were incredible, incredible like old school, Tiger Woods. So Tiger Woods is all the way back and his swag level by walking. In with his redshirt his golf shirt on a hanger, like it was a fucking tuxedo was unbelievable. Biceps bursting and he's just walking with his red shirt like precious cargo. No-one touched the red shirts. Fucking is a red dry fit Nike shirt. And he kept doing the thing where he was like scratching his back because he knew the cameras on so it can show off the guns a little bit you go? Yeah, he, the swag was was in full for tiger shoes. Cool. A cool moment. Obviously, he still needs to win a. I think we all agree Cup him winning a major is going to be the real. Okay. Tigers back, put him just winning event is a big deal because it's been very, very long in lot of people myself included thought he would probably never be at this level again because he's his back gut transfixed Tikal that fucking Tigers separately. That's exactly how he broke his back. Fucked too. Yeah, that's why I don't have sex fucked his back out. I care too much about my is you really backed off those only thirty players in the tournament is thirty best. Yeah, so yeah, def isn't every tournament. The thirty best players that no. That make the cut are the, it's usually like what seventy players? Mexico? Because what I mean is is the best in like it was the actual thirty best words when they play these other tournaments. I feel like these random slugs just get hot for one weekend and can beat anyone. I don't know what it's still. I think he's still very much he wanted tournament event he wants. I don't know what it says about us just as that. We love seeing people just like torn apart..
