Said love dogs are cute dogs but I'll rules surprised at this one. Little bummed out for big department.

Get treated great you can't eat and he got dad you can't eat it. Whether Clinton created just flying. We're happy for when I'm hoping for and got this surge I was a little surprise that the silence at the beginning I think people were truly shocked stunned right that that that big heated when missing the part but congratulations obviously a wonderful event. Always good. We know the podcast and great way to go and Mike Mohler senior. Like junior not sitting this segment out. This could be painful. Until late tonight notre Dame's appeal the decision to vacate 21 football victories because of academic misconduct including all twelve wins. From the school's 2012 national championship game Ron for those are unaware course until my junior was on the team while offensive lineman. Notice present the reverend John Jenkins criticizes isn't a letter to alumni say in the penalty was unprecedented. Considering who was involved in misconduct at the school is being punished for rigorously enforcing his honor code called the ruling in spare. Notre Dame agreed to accept certain insulate findings acknowledged cheating. Involving several football players any student athletic trainer. But appealed all the pillar vacated the victories so the Italy stripping the Irish 21 wins. By the school 5000 dollars and plea GAAP. And place to school on one years' probation that was in November 20 strike team. And just of course again like you noses well national runner up in 2012 loss to ban in the title game finished twelve to one when not if for 2013. Like Jimmy floor is yours first. It's gotten beyond the point because I did the initial ramp when this came out is something I almost forgot all about through the course beyond oh I'd ask her out about it and I absolutely we had a conversation the first time around. Where you look at it you say well what's the value really. A stripping away wins that we all know or there I had someone tweet in his morning and seeing the Internet age where we can all go back and see those games it's impossible to a race that great. For a place like Notre Dame were having those on the ledger manners. Were having it. Relative to your all time position we know that win percentage they constantly waffled Michigan for one into an all time this knocks them down considerably to number six Donald really become secondary at this point because again you're not really going to rewrite history. But what you've done is you've now slighted someone who in this was really an ally for you write the winner Notre Dame operate because you know this is walls idea. When I talk about that honor code dark what is different. Dow record expects more out of you don't want the NCAA is going to expect out of use a student athlete be barriers in the markers the US to meet at Notre Dame are different. And so they're saying we hold ourselves accountable. And that wasn't good enough for you another instance and we've seen plenty of runner Jed Delis had just read the NCAA totally overstepped bounds again the Penn State overreach means nobody won best to get themselves again this is a student issue to which Notre Dame applied its honor code now nobody will apply our court again when you've got to school at Notre Dame they can beat the beacon of this for you and say it would prop this up all the time the NCAA loves the student athlete monster in Notre Dame actually backs up what you're looking format and now you've lost them. Good luck for a seat full of people are tied for people already calling for. What do we need the NCAA for anyway John Jenkins a company got to be looking at the Malloy yup exactly what do we need you for. Well and for those who may not remember what went on this it was a couple of student a couple of football players who were cheating. And who were doing the cheating with a part time assistant trainer. And basically what the NCAA said was that that part time assistant trainer was a representative of the institution. And basically what would John Jenkins Hussein there's no precedent previous NCA cases. For the decision to add to discretionary penalty a vacation a team record indicates a student. Two student cheating involving a part time student worker who has no role. An academic advising. And there what one guy that that a lot of you may not know that we have gotten to know it is his father John Jenkins the president Notre Dame. He is a he's more of a quiet man. And he got riled Ed you riled that and he'd he'd. The letter he sent out in in rebuttal to this. Explaining a lot of these things are much better that I would ever have a chance of explained you can you're closer to him and that certainly I can of explaining. What's going on here but. To your point we are heard you before what Jay's point is as well. Notre Dame you know it. I know a lot of people hate Notre Dame say your lead us in blob blob off fine. But Notre Dame has higher standards to get in for student athletes and then to NCA guessed that the fact that just is so well why however you want to look at that. And how what Notre Dame holds its student athletes to is that a higher standard that other schools are what the NCAA would would deem these standards and Notre Dame. They disciplined when these when these student athletes were cheated and sold to the point that everybody is making is now the NCA comes over the top. And vacate all these wins that's who is what you're doing here. Are making schools now say why the hell we're gonna have a lot of code. We're gonna we're gonna take care are all here we're gonna did discipline these people are not a code but then you come over the top and smokers like this and you haven't done it before. Or how we ghetto or why are we gonna do this anymore. If I'm a kid and you'd do in my mom were always the same we want you wanted us to put you'd keep you involved in the things that we are doing keep you abreast of what was going on even if it sometimes it was on comfortable. If you as I do that if I ever wore George trust by telling you something that I've done something that might disappoint you guys. And you go back on that punish overly harshly and and lock me away for all time what am I gonna do the next time not to Alitalia air ads and now that's exactly what they're going to face Notre Dame and other schools were gonna say all right. We don't believe that this is something that has overstepped crazy boundaries we reported it because we believe it's the right thing to do and what's our award in the back and being punished for something that goes so far over the top that why would we ever put ourselves in that position again so now you just create a breeding ground for more to go wrong in places words more likely to go wrong and here. And I know one of the comparisons with North Carolina went through the and the reason one of the region are believed the NCAA didn't jump in and out on because involvement regular students as well with a fake class isn't fake curriculum and all that but I mean athletes seeking irregular -- holy smokes you look at that situation but they said elicited it's not just athletes its regular student who's while we're this. Was student athletes and a part time athletic trainer so they felt it was more than their purview to come down and do this is just yet and and I know open or to say you guys went snorting yeah we did. But listen. If this is about school Alexa wasn't Notre Dame. Peace in the exact same thing and it's it's it's ridiculous right when you're taking care bureau under display hero and an honor code. That doesn't involve the curriculum or it's not institutionalized. Here as far as the cheating is concerned. I mean man I do it's a bit overstepping. It's your chance like like he says Sony people are Notre Dame haters they said they don't like the school stands for and all the rest of problem blog Rudy Exterran. Do you think there's a chance because he assimilate their formats whether overreaching there saying we don't want to be seen as being. Gonna break through that given a break or absorbs solar punishing maybe excessively just so nobody criticizes of being. Pro Notre Dame I know let's assertive by that would open up a bit its search it's that when your big dog yell let's let's tell Notre Dame on this I don't think -- feet. I think it's one of those words like in sports. Just ten to punish the guys that they can get away with par I think they tend to punish the people in situations you're never gonna see someone's. It was proves what Malcolm Butler got sat down on the Super Bowl they're not sitting down Tom Brady if it's a comparable situation that is happening and so a lot of those other cases their big. There really complex cases they involve a lot of moving parts and a lot of impropriety it's really difficult to deal with the the public right stuff of the NCAA we talk about all the time as well out of its jurisdiction in dealing with. This felt a little easier for them. This felt a little bit more compartmentalized in a way that we could look at make insane justified. As we think is wrong we're gonna strip winds and that's going to be the end debated felt low stakes and up the problem is. You thought it was a low stakes issue with a place that still carries a fair amount away for whatever you wanna say about the state of the football program wins a loss is wise father Jenkins jacks for broken that group over there still will the fair amount of power in college football circles. And I can't imagine this is going to be a group that's going to go to bat if the NCAA needs are going forward. Another thought speaking of football people fired up Charles Haley the no effect this is crazy that the four defensive Limas last linebacker pro football hall of Famer. He was on the Dennison Kalish are shell on one of 3.3 ESPN Dallas and went off on a variety of issues criticized in the cowboys. From gone thirteen and three twice sixteen to 97 this past season. And EC head I blame everybody it's one team everybody's together and that's the key. I'd go over there I tell guys man. Jerry built the cells for budget damn loser while and they get mad they had to do something about it I can't do anything about it I can't play at all I can do is give you some knowledge. Crazy they was easier than in the Eagles are so big they're so busy getting on Twitter FaceBook everything else maybe should get mad playbook Mickey Shuler had a rush catch and block I mean nobody's scared of them ain't nobody really scary all. We all noticed listen to people saying you got the best offense upon the business. I should whose security all up. Those little things like that goes into handles the attitude you take I go over there and I watched guys were I watched him go through drills. Charles Haley hammering today is an album that that was I you know low Bruce DOS it's like Gotham I don't know what it is if they put something in the raisin bran for these guys is a bit off the off the norm by. To come out firing like daft as it is in general with football but a lot of the problem becomes for the sport as a whole that. Your harshest critics are within the sport so it gives everyone else credence to look at an attack drive the Dallas Cowboys are already polarizing Morgan Nelson so now you invite this out there for a team that is coming off a rough year in the job for Jason Darren company continues to get put under that magnify. You know I and you just wonder I guess you look around and everything for us it would be more like Notre Dame could you see yourself for me met that's were you play and national champs to game you dare you you. A you know our whole Famer Dan you are radio redacted. That if you saw. If you felt the same way Charles Haley felt about the cowboys would you be speaking up like this would you be going off on that as well I mean. Is that the team you're associated with the most and Charles Haley is it while he played for number two just no doubt about that. Associated selfish when he was a Dallas Cowboys. And that's the thing I mean would you would you go off like that. You know what I think there are ways to go about a good you can appreciate someone being critical so I think they love and I think we all do that to an extent I mean hell that pops up with the you we'd like in this building sometime you have to be able to look at certain things objectively. And called a melt but the tone with which you do it also matters inferred. Someone that you're okay here's what I'd go back on campus how I'm received I'm always careful to say. I wanna be disrespectful because I understand what these people are going through it I just that's the thing that shocking news. Charles Haley understands what these guys are going through maybe that it's what he feels like gives him the ability to say this but. You think it would also breed a little bit of empathy for the coarseness. I usually criticize those the lovely being cared continuing to saving ground area you think you Cubans his suasion. You'd be a little bit more can I I think there are ways to do it as well where you don't wanna be beat that guy that says oh you're gonna make an excuse your team all the time then militant. There's times you can be critical of play x.s and knows we you know we can break things down that were critical of put gather could be a way of how far do you go from a personal attack as opposed to what you're seeing on the PSA criticism and construct nuclear awesome god Jerry built this house or budget damn looser us now may not be the best dressed.

That's the person you had to appease the most like if you do it like you put your significant other did like it while you had delight now we invited but one thing we do agree on as we don't go link over the top with riots and all that it's just a nice night usually romantic dinner kind of just the two of us that's usual we do our very go or go with that punish cards you know I got lucky that it's a thoughtful it's a thought I had it just that's all the remind each other you know. It all use a good reminder that counted it. It the cavaliers don't need a reminder that after these trades everyone's all Little League and they sort 120 points he franchise record fourth straight game here's number listed out legs. LeBron just paste all scorers with 37. But the cavs bench outscored the thunder reserves by 31 that's the largest bench scoring differential by LeBron James T minister were how vital is that for this team. Critical to try Alou hit it had to go ahead after the game he said it's nice to have so many guys that can. Dribble pass and shoot it sounds basic but that's exactly what you're talking about we describe to my Golden State. The more guys than any team in the league that can make place. And they didn't have enough of that in Cleveland they had a lot of one dimensional. Offensive players. Everything built around LeBron James greatness and then a bunch of guys that did one thing. Either you know you were a slasher divers had to get off its rebounds and Tristan Thompson or for the most part a bunch of guys stood around and just shot three point shots. When you bad guys like Jordan Clarkson yeah. Hood these are guys that can George Hill they can make plays off the dribble they can spot up catch and shoot they can slash they can find people and then. You got a guy like Nance who today he walks in the locker room is all the sudden your best front court athlete at the 45 position. And so they've just given up so much more depth a completely different look. On both ends of the floor and you talk about the offensive numbers but defensively. It's night and day what we saw from this team in the first half a year. So as we look at them trying to figure everything out of the four new ones George you'll the only starter. But hood Clarkson a man's coming off the bench of I've gotten more minutes in this last game. That everybody except for LeBron and JR Smith you see this line up not that the starting lineup is the end all be all. But do you see more shifting to the starting lineup the minutes as as they go on you know I'm not sure about that. But I do know what I'm seeing for longer stretches in the game our lineups that they put out there that are all built around quickness and versatility defensively. We're day camp if for similar sized players that can switch everything. They did have that luxury mean a lot of state of putting out there even if the teams that have gone to the finals they struggled with that but was really bad at the start this year. With with some of the guys they had out there how slow they worry how small they work. And really just limits what you could do defensively so. Now they go through long stretches where they've taken literally switch at four different positions maybe even five. If Nancy is that the senator he did a few times last night the fourth quarter switched on a ball screen you give up anything. Because he's quick enough to slide his feet and if he does get beat he's athletic enough to recover is still contested shot at the rams so. That's what's been interesting to me is to watch the do transformational. To a team that can actually get get after you a little bit in the half court. They weren't doing that all they were pressuring the ball. They were really reactive to what you wanted to do now they're dictating a little bit more here here's what we're gonna do you defensively and and you've seen now. At least for through two games and it's it's pay great dividends to these moves they made a last Thursday. Timlin the right now and studio goal echoing a leg shot 52% and three in 9590 sic which is when you won the three point contest. Third highest percentage ever any single season and the highest for a player. Who shot at least two or threes in a season I say that because the rockets had ten threes in the fourth quarter last night that's that's match most of fourth quarter and MD history. It got seven games at least 23 pointers how crazy. My dad's secret America or credible offensively and if you your parrot to a football team he'd say imagine a football team that lined up and ran the same play. Every snap bill and you couldn't stop it but that's literally what they do they have one set. High ball screen whether it's hard with the ball or Chris Paul the ball that's all they run either click Appel sets it Ryan Anderson earned an A whoever it may be. And then they just spot you up with 33 point shooter but the two guys with the ball. Are so good at running ball screen forcing you into heaven help and recover. They kick it out and ages stages speech offered a three point line Chile kind of fascinating to watch now will that translate. To a team that can get it done when you played a league team like Golden State down the road tension in the conference finals remains to be seen but at least in a regular season. This a team that's really on virtually impossible to defend because you just don't have enough time to go over all your coverages when you've got one practice or one film session. And now here you are your played Houston Rockets they're funny your face. So in a different way to ask the exact same question we're talking about here's who we talked about Cleveland I'm telling you right now. Golden State is going to lose in the playoffs whether in the Western Conference finals or the finals. Which team will beat them which team has the best chance to beat. Probably Cleveland. Probably Cleveland now of what the way that they look at I think. They come went overnight they went from a team that I thought was gonna give beat the second round routine I think's gonna be back in the finals again. I just think Houston plays too similar. Style and pace. For the gold state wars if you try to play the same kind of game nobody has been added revenge for the fact and and they do more then just do their their role players do more than just catch and shoot threes that there are guys that can attack you off the dribble the way they move the ball. With you had a great shooting team that we've ever seen. I think Houston's got a hard time getting by Golden State so I think. Cleveland might be more built to do that now because at the end of the day they still have some do very unique they have LeBron James. Nobody else really has one of those so I would go with we. I go to Twitter view relays couple minutes here of these tweets torque not for the 100 flowers dot com Twitter feed. Likes Mike wants a past interview is there any chance the knicks are not a joke within the next five years yeah there's a chance but it's gonna completely hands around Christos versioning is coming back making all the way back. And you know that first year's going to be rough so PG these out a calendar year he comes back next February. Well don't expect too much the rest of the season next year she really talking about the following season if he makes it all the way back yes there is a chance and and you do have hope. Gonna take that though at the top of the list of nearly Kean is gonna have to develop at a rapid pace next season. While perusing this is now you need is she may may massive growth out of him in the offseason. And a much more complete player next year because he was a lottery pick and so that's you can't we afford those. He's got he's a guy that's got to take a big step forward so. There there's a chance and you could always make up ground quicker in the east and you can and the west now so I just gave knicks fans hope for a lot of hope to learn ago Kennedy a couple of years away minimum because it all it's all gonna hinge around Brazil guess and he just won't be the same player until probably. You know here right next. Art frank we're already answered your question US is the hype in the new look cast too early well we were kind of answered that tell a couple more quick is what's your favorite Valentine's Day candy it's easiest to candy hearts but it's the big ones I hate the small ones. Their way to crunchy right the big ones are softer. And I him my wife we'll tell you more to OK got out it's no joke yeah how badly I go through those really she blows up she must get ten bags of those things right for the month really and they're just constantly retirement so you're just like to eat them on Valentine's I don't know I don't know OK and has to work out tomorrow you know stars to sort of Federer one yeah okay I treat that similar to Halloween Christmas and that's I. Yeah. And I'm just constantly every time a walk by that candy dish on the island in the Q okay I'm grabbing three what exactly what I do well and speak and grabbing three. Monte wants to know where do you keep your three point shootout trophy I keep got NAN in. I guess you call it an entertainment senator room in my house right big glass window. Given an air and my friends late night when we had I had them over rang out a little bit having some fun typically will do something with that in desecrate that is why. And take really really pictures with that yes ended up in a lot of strange photos you'll remember all of our participants. Most of them. I could probably get there again takes some time I know a B Dennis Scott a fundamental value be in the filed a Steve Kerr was and it yup I know cliff Robinson was in it right Hubert Davis Wright was and it's George McCloud George McLeod a barrel solved for and Glen Rice I do this I knew this was a defense you know Scott MacLeod incur made it to the siamese. Menuing Dennis Scott made that a final as you're still. The only person to score over twenty points in all three rounds I believe registered to last year was it was a record that one. He did three rounds or was a tiebreak gotcha yeah tiebreaker right so I think our record is safe 65 point 65 points 2322. And twenty Sylvia only one or 23 round and it did change the rules now because you can get 34. For a money ball are now perfectly round you're right they added for money balls to your favorite spot and what was your don't have our 33 as high as you can get. So you could scoreless for two sold a record sell this new three point shooting stopped and got knocked around and snapped him like that exactly right legs are gone. Goalie can makes me wanna vomit and then punch you square in the face and window holes he. He saucy today. Basically drag me out not only what Islamist Mirant today. Neck crank that sucker up like I still can't believe we've had one while Richie song and know Whitney Houston's songs joke. We got ties to Joseph partner that I never give return its goal can we go to ESPN radio and ESPN two. How is this for me occult but incoming claim that woman felt remorse is still a bar soap when she was twelve. And so the woman surname QQ you now thirty arrived as department store. With a hundred bars of perfume set the same kind she's shop lifted eighteen years ago. She explained it's time her mother generally want to be the highest since it's open couldn't afford it right this has been a way to my heart all these years he told the store employee because it's the worst thing I've done in my life. Store's owners deeply moved by the gesture and paid the so forward to sanitation workers. Free of charge. And cues to the whole experience has been very therapeutic laster was suffering from depression been on better nice treat every day as if it was my last one bar soaps stuck. There's a 118 years later. Well the what I took out of that story is her saying that's the worst thing she's ever done their life. We can only hope to have that finalized until the worst thing you do take a bar out of a bar soap right holy smokes chicken let you know kids don't like is they know resident. Drilling that source you've done I start early gates got Kim death sellout so our whip I just think it's interesting to go hi Julie in the if you just hate metro making up for how should be just returned one the Dow the gestures clearly want a harder line on we'll. Hundred Baltimore up for this. Are coming up next job over Antarctica eighty Nolan Valentine's Day edition eleven are shot at since my opera ten minutes from now but then what do. Tree visit for a couple out might this whole issue Steve Cora the fact he let his players. Our run a couple plays and to let there we just out on legs is always in a great asset to the shown to the county was telling us he didn't have an issue with the armed and it was critical of unease in a recession is who's telling us it's not the fact that he did the players ransom plays he has been just the fact that. Curse seems to be so sensitive to the fact they took criticism for he said. In a cell like he used to really empower the players. That would be a practice saying he what you guys come up with a couple sets and then you guys run it that that is actually carrier players and giving them freedom. It is ninety seconds to gain in three time that's not doing anything. And that's because I have no issue is running it's horribly let's have your professional now join up and raise and I thought the sons and look fine you win at all costs he is but. They just don't get like her is getting praise for is if it's a revolutionary idea it's ridiculous. I am stunned. Where this is gone I and I gave my opinion on it and you know I give my opinion that's right I think it's. Right I think that's what what happened that's why give my opinion yet. This was. Halfway through the season. You're destroying an opponent or your break up went on in have a little bit of fun to think. That this is some revolution everything and that other coaches are gonna start doing it and Steve Kerr is his visionary for doing it. If a ball. Laughable couldn't get up there at the end of the game and set I was doing because it's monotony were killing these guys among my guys have some fun. Only comes up with me that the team is the players in on that whole library. This was not playing. You're not playing this is what happened some form during a game there's a blowout an opponent. It's not gonna start a trend when players are gonna start right now plays so what. What we're right where he was talking goes off there. Have some guys used common practice runs a million total would mean in practice secretaries over duke game. I can't believe all the press is getting like fifty some. Revolutionary thing that's can kidnap me. Having out of. You know it's. This is in the best of gold would give me go podcast mutual to subscribe on the ESPN.
