Even though played seven years to be angles was it was dominant then they got out and before he got to be out and Jerry Stovall also rose raw household names. To me now. On a different topic because. We talking about American gaming. And that being a low wagering. And we talked about Americans. Illegally. Last year. This according to the American Gaming Association. They wagered a 150 billion dollar little sport illegally each year we talk about that'll be yeah so this is a long these lines are remembering. You know 32 states are considered likely to offers board's meeting with betting within five years. According to one research firm well. Louisiana be in that number I don't know I know Mississippi. Is going to be in that no beef Florida's football season. But do we get the reason why bring up that wagering. On that bidding Christian. Did you see this woman. And to by hitting it big for the Kentucky Derby and I did talk about this this is unbelievable. This is something that person in my network journal morphine did. That this woman. So that she bit on. Justified. To win in the 2018. Kentucky Derby. This morning just that one race. She had a one point two million dollar payday. She's a stay true Texan. They. From central Texas.

In the old forest a classic states Vinci pig justified. So Chris and she'd turned. Eighteen Dallas. It's a one point two million. To let the gaming. Tell it she knows she's drama three dollars in the one point two men who marry. Now shed the can't argue that said that take five sitting held but the winners right in a long shot was 39 to one that she picked. And and and that's what kinda obviously. And Israel with a fever and a dog derby justified now this is a little sentimental or bring up to you here. It just shows you I am getting old map past relationships. Older. Older well older. You know I mean older and I mean again it. They are. But the reason I bring it out you know Idec caller saying who Dan Collison a few years well well well and there's a whole. Well when out of now walkers and on the definitely view that number. But. This past Saturday. Two former coaches. That recruited me. Passed away. From. The first one being. Billy brewer. So who's Billy brewer him as the Ole miss football star he went on to coach the rebels we died this past Saturday was. 83 years of me. Now if you look at coach brewer. If 67 wins and Ole miss. Artist second in school history only behind Johnny vaught. The stadium is called Johnny bug stadium. RG those and is he was inducted in all his sports hall of fame in 2011 that being Coors brewed from our relationship with him. Was that he was the southeast Louisiana head coach. From 1974. To seven in nine. While won the state championship. And 77 so I would have been a freshman in 78. So coach Billy brewer. Was the head coach at southeastern. And so was recruiting me and air forget. Myself David Dillon Robin Crosby whereas Salvi sending a flame is to be college for a game. And we kind of left at halftime. Because we wanted to go to warehouse district duo that the warehouse district and garnered a warehouse. And list in two UFO. It was a bang them when people go party that went Nelson. But I remember a coach brew recruited me. At the southeast in any in the past two it is Saturday. Well this other coach also passed who it is Saturday. Ground chuck. Chuck Knox. The former NFL coach Steelers no no the real on the outside and you dignity and internal will look chuck Knox and knocks out of their way yet a jogger knocked to ground chuck you know we gonna we gonna roll over them. The format a vocal agility LA rams to three straight NC jam Asian games. He also led the Seahawks in a Buffalo Bills we passed away he was 86 years of age. This Saturday. Now my connection is that he took over to Seahawks. In 1983. It's sunny today yes in 85. And immediately when the 83 led the franchise to report first playoff berth and at that time this CR to a net AFC in there and it kinda gain. He spent nine seasons with the Seahawks but it is thought that was in his secrets are going to bring that I was like whoa cause you know who you cross paths with. Going back to early seventies. 7778. We Billy brewer. And then also coach chuck Knox. Back in 1985 with the Seattle Seahawks. Bobby's knowledge nuggets here on sports talk.

It deep right field line drive shot lead back is Tyler Smith the time. And now all you. Aliens. Two run blast gonna make it five. I have nothing tigers. Lot of talk about Dave Cabrera and that's the rising star as a hitter for Allah issue I mean he here down the stretch he is red hot we'll step away most of way Bobo Christen. C'mon.

Win the lottery to the number one pick NBA. Lottery Atlanta. Skiing too in Sacramento at three.

Draft lottery love or hate it it is what it is in the NBA gene and the co almost one on gene you're on W do well. I yelled bill that Bobby Bobby Cox or knew full well what a well. I gotta disagree with you com College Baseball college sports in general I mean that can be. Parity and just this war. Lost them are so weak in the it's gotten plate and you don't that is still playing games. Oh cool hostess. At this thing is being kings host. You know inner change post that the top. Of the world. On the. Also Carolina won a World Series if a couple yeah and then go out there and it's slippery slippery that's living on stony broke Tony good to beat LSU. I get that quick you don't have a inhabited football basketball and put it. Christian folk who have yet LC ten different routines that they took us all but like while still not much power. But well Clinton not you couldn't keep college basketball managing. College football you can name the team on what. Think the parity united in baseball it's a huge flaw ought not drill all the items in between go you still at the it's about that thinking. That interchange Celtic forward and all those. Tunnels and the parity. Well you know you don't you don't have the parity heavily in the northern part of the United States. And the water I am. Right if you go like Virginia might be. That no. Closes thing and on these argued state gambling and on the last but is Emily. And geographically incline that the and a warm weather states. Jeanne the wrongs don't last as long barely be on this is a might be a little our little long waited. OK so Florida won last year they're probably gonna win it this year than the best in the counties of Florida finally one part of Florida was that it picketing Canaveral wanted to or Tuesday. Has Mike mark as the all time winningest cup collegiate baseball coach and in history. Eight and he's been almost sixty guys. Hasn't won once at Morgan State is a perennial powers well LSU knocked them off last year I understand what you're seeing in terms of UCL a all the team hold on gene. It but these assist these aren't necessarily sustain for long third time in today's College Baseball the days and LA issue where they can throw out their 25 players on the roster. And on scholarship and he would go back to back deep runs in the college World Series win. Back to back national title those kind of days are over on on the significant level consistent level counties saw in the eighty's and ninety's Barley are. I grew I haven't seen on the musical activists have anything about how dominant US the US and even Texas. Not. Just within it better it's more parity but thinking host you don't super eight probably going to be. In on appeal should issue but what we're past how many it was a though. I just say a whole season he's editor Zia. You know the packet might Mo at Florida State the perennial you know bridesmaids but he's there you're in Europe yeah. I think that if you look at if you look at all the if you look at Jeanne if you look at some of the dirt bags that I think was was the name of their. Long beach state they've been in if pro while another it perennially little oval just got in the baseball game and look how good a program. They've had the guy I mean I think it's not just. It's not just always the same teams year in year out look how. The level on the playing field without the same amount scholarship what is done for programs like the chanticleers like the global cardinals who. By and large were considered a basketball school for a long time in here lately have gotten extremely good at baseball that going to the college groceries and back to back. Years had it not acknowledging he also when you look at and we always bring this up March Madness has Cinderella story. Will would you classify is truly Cinderella. If he can make at least 20 lead eight. I don't know final four is sweet sixteen elite eight because. You know you look at some schools like hum alchemy bedecked university even if it is basketball.

Mean for gamblers Brandon. Well it is basically. Is in the court or he's still going to be in business people have a relationship with them. For years. It. Take guys who were little leery announced orders. But our source sports book poster read it Leno and hey it happens I'm crying out loud. That it he says it all missing pick up your then. Legally and about it in our fifteen minutes of work. It is opens up a tremendous convenience factor. For the general sports. That it doesn't responsibly and then it simple access to it now. The big winner though it the state and so what I can put the gentle person doesn't understand. Is that each year into an estimated that 400 to 500 billion dollar wager optional. So think about. Oh cut out part 250 billion dollar. That Robert Costa Rica that they got in July. Now you're in peace and now I'd take that away from it that sort of billion dollars. Up right there right in the United States helped us stay. The fact that revenues that you were. If you put sports books have made it acceptable for people with a sport interstate. A lot apple revenue that we now have a chance the state money that they indeed did things so it will incorporate some call for the last forty years. Great Britain has for years and they function perfectly. Insight. Usaid in time and time. This is a big day period. Now Renny talk about what's illegally wagered. Now. I'm paid. I guess playing both sides and offensive board is skewed heard the local book he's been than. Would you still have individuals could you talk about the relationship where their local bookie. That you still want to be involved. With that individual. Silly because of parting taxes now you take any chance this hearing if you would be legal. Get arrested and all of I kind of stuff but is it also case in point that you still gonna have be legal betting. Simply tell void taxes are way. Our ability. To reason why it you know but taxes. And back that would in certain book eat that first. Well for. Humans that we need at least seven or about three little treatment. Big difference ugly looking into sports legally legally use that the money. Gotta be in there and right date was April. You start we've got the start. Your work out that monopoly money only becomes real that following Tuesday we knew either way the collective act ejected we. Or being which is the worst is an area of the pocket you to shop at NB I get a pay it. That they let the main action packed well for seven days. Money that you don't have made it. Yet. You know Italy responsible. Now brandy look at would states are on top of things and though we compare and these pars Louisiana Mississippi I know. About a time football season starts come pre season or even the regular season August September. Then now my understanding 45 to sixty days. Mississippi is to be ready to roll. And look at their proximity to Mississippi Gulf Coast in new loans now a number of fans and did dig and love to go and do a lot of wagering gaming. On the Mississippi Gulf Coast but would you break down that and then also. You to comment and about 32 states. Are considered likely to office towards creating within. Five years is that pretty accurate Iowa. Well so ignore. It it anymore. Yeah. You can't count taxable income. It. For years it is easiest thing that the the CEO's the global casinos on their nations that are there. There are licensing placing the sports book up and running. Latin if you Libya were about sixty days to that the there's any legislation and we passed would argue with the racetrack. You EB. We're such attack that problem state importantly want. I think it into the day I believe we're gonna have over 48. I say you know what. You're due out this depicting. And out war general actually believe it or I believe it it'll it'll be on the effort. Brandi out all the mormons goal so a little Louisiana's largely conservative you know Christians etc. And he they're kind of Ramsey Orleans also Wright who were there also opposing this right now lately two weeks ago and our legislators. Now didn't have any interest they don't wanna have any interest in a local legislator that that. You know basically. Put a building gathered a shot down. An and a special session. And they don't want their reason is they don't wanna expand the gambling in this state first off it's a that's a moron aquinas to approach it. The load what more of a sports book mean you think in Louisiana with so much interest. And the pelicans and the saints Ellis shoot football obviously a smaller schools well with the interest down here who sports fans. And 88 branded I think of like New Orleans could potentially be like law's vague his junior yeah. Yet but the atmosphere hunters known about. In any that it took me that there's so it sports betting. But sport that no different than you'll hear. Ellis. They're really you know people don't understand it really there's no different than differences. You're asking on me toward but scratch off argue that it came into an hour later you know that you want. Money there. Gambling. Is gambling. Here you can't separate sports betting that the let's stop by which I hear you know per liter air there. There yet that I heard seen the latest stretch out their life. It's hypocritical thing ever seen but you know today. That's what we're dealing with the big hypocrisy in the state. It made it quite odd in game. From happening or deny it state back Obama that they used and there's 88 better. And you know it's it's that humiliated and our people of the world economic well. Because you have these Christian fundamentalists that are still living in 196019701980s. And worried too about. Now Brendon. What you comment on this route now Louisiana legislator. Legalize fans and may legalize fantasy sport apps you look at. The legislators have approved a bill that could lead to fantasy sports games whether played on the Internet smarts hole such as draft kings offend you. And the become legal for the first time in the state now the voters we get to decide whether fantasy sports become legal. In their communities on the members six ballot. But. Just educate the fan base warn you dealing with fantasy sports with him about America's. My understanding that's more a game of skill and chance. When you talk of going out now bad. But it still gambling. The looming different page European. Card players and played resident is now. Let me use the word hypocrisy yet legalized. In that are in place at Google entrap game. Legal case that it would mean people who are educated. You know and game span football. Work hard pay saying there so. Or are they kill me. That that people sports betting they categorize sports betting over year. But it okay that people all year. During the has been played up their football it's the same meeting in me that people they'll. Well I aid brand and along those lines it's amazing. The power of lobbyists. Could terrorism are bring that up in Louisiana. You look in the past the video poker industry has helped kill legislation. That would have legalized fantasy sports as because operators see it sees as gains as competition but then. They had one major video program obvious Alton ashy. He has sent last month that. That the bill what you look at is not a priority this year because he knows lawmakers. Would have to come back and neck shared her drug regulations for illegal. The legal tendencies towards gambling to become a reality. So all of a sudden. You look at apiece in a pie. And you guide the power of the video poker industry. Saying well this taken away from us we don't want that around. Yeah it that that body you're dumb. Wait that's like that calm and opponents. Every step of the way. Think about what it took to get there's there's so we're at right now and probably some years ago. Our stadium body. Idiot and it states that it is today. We're talking hundreds learning about tax dollars it to Asia it like it did the right way. If leaking it and do it too bad New Orleans in their city. At that page is do it and ignited me it looked at from local locals so local business news. But you do get the wrong people in the leadership. Pot is that they can't happen and that's the sad part while. Now Brandon and I just want your opinion on this when you look at obviously. Outstanding players are individuals. What they've accomplished on the field. And times change you look at Pete Rose getting in the hall of fame. I mean could this help may be his case going forward oval what is your take on that. His involvement and and possibly. Being in inducted in all the things. I think the former like. Never proven that it in Cincinnati. Just any bet on the net. Arguably the greatest baseball players in the history. Deservedly so. Well you stare right they'll hold it would be itself. I eat dessert shut tight chip.
