David we're honored to hand the our next guest I don't think we met during the Super Bowl and it's so many tremendous players move and and and out based motivational speaker he is going to be at the international work boat show tomorrow the keynote speaker. And he's done with the Heisman morning senator. Gore I'm doing well things take in the time. Article in its first off let's start with the international work boat she'll tomorrow you're going to be. I don't know given it a speech numbness not so much about boats are. No it actually it and actually the work vote. International show which little different than year of leisure craft boat injured leisure giant tankers and tuck the ball. All the things they keep this country movement. A key oil moving changed barges moving. All different types but that. That the industry doesn't necessarily. Determined so much what we would paralyze you don't think I like to talk about his relationship between the world sports. The world business personalized content and so many years. Being part of that team and so many years being considered an underdog but you know fit and strong and out. They get priority here people played at all but I mean I just try and urged people don't anybody tell you that you can't do so. And then you gonna do something trying to be the best you can possibly be in. Not talk about goals and attitudes and teamwork motivation. Thousand stories have some fun won't pick on the saints and be sure that to do that they're good pick not as it is another topic yesterday or. But really important the New Orleans is one of my favorite cities in the world and they wanted to have a Super Bowl every other year in New Orleans would be perfectly fine with me. Well we'd love it too it inserts the motivational speaking Jill how much you do a year you're gonna erode the whole year. Pretty much had to. 250 gauge your new roughly between sixty to eighty presentations annually and doing now for over 35 years so. A lot of a lot of opportunity a lot of of quote the stores learned different industries learning about different people you know from doing CEO seminars sale seminar. In the big guns 35000. In Indianapolis in the small hybrid it was a dinner in Washington. Percent and it was a forty minute presentation for seven people. Richest which is a little bit which has been that are able. It try to tell a story in the other end of the table at Thanksgiving. And that you're in the 140. And. In I was gonna tell you I think I would much rather it's 35000. Then second and whale bit nervous before then almost back to football nervous or where even nervous when you played football. Now you know it is in. There there isn't under Venus about it. In Italy Poland there only because not that I'm scared about the job. You just wanna do a good job for the people that bring you want to make sure that there is a success and I try to do everything I can't to make sure that. Would people lead their I want them to feel great about march great about the companies they work for and and making sure that there lights. Maybe can be expected a positive way I don't tell people how to do anything makes suggestions they can't just take a look at where. And navy couple tweaks here and there might make a difference in lights but how important it is to have influence and someone else's like to. That 35000. Let's and we did and many years ago. And which interstate about it is. I understand now how rock star's ego every night they walked out on stage when you see that many people and their scream and yell and cheer and the adrenaline starts to flow and no matter how tired you might be here whatever state of mind might be and all of a sudden the energy just slows me. But you know again next seven people I can just imagine doing something like. I do year's ads in trouble in their life. Okay one of those that's good. Yet it's 50% of the audience and that's what you where you have to look at. You know in in. You know it's more story and they were storyteller accurately earlier Anthony Robbins let's brown. You know Debbie fields so I mean blew holes. Little goes on on people of Robert O'Neill the young man who shot at a lot. It doesn't matter who you wore I think people are interested. In understanding netware really no different than they. And you know going through 2000 relations I talk about bringing change. To rhyme with size intro or talk about going to. Struggles of a wall sudden being at the top of the game and at all sir your hurt you're caught. And these are things that I believe people can resonate with because we all trials and tribulations of our lives we will content types arms. Notable people tell us that we can't do certain thanks. I just want urged people note you can be you'll be. It just of course you make your mind to do. A we don't want you to pick on a saints and all but I think we would like your analysis is very successful. NFL player Joseph you know famous trying to find out. No all I am every all the accepting an adult and yours ill bring out. It all kinds of different things but now I'm I'm not in yet though all the things Serb troops. It's quite an unbelievable thing for the guys that aren't in part gen Ameritech Drew Brees will be one day which is and it's such teaching I think. That they make them wait fight you're Brett sort have to wait like yours you'd have to wait by yours. It is that you're going like coaches coaches don't have to wait well you know he but he's. I'll just go right. There ought to be like an exceptional. Group of people that say just get on in there where you deserve to be. I can't believe you're not just resumed you work bomb went when it comes it Drew Brees in the saints. And you like to watch a lot of NFL games got a lot of knowledge the what advice would you offer for the saints organization and maybe for Drew Brees. I don't Mickey Loomis a number years and potential on for a number years shall speak when they were when they were training data entry port. Many years ago. It was whose first year. With the saints at period. You know gone through the process of deciding whether be Miami New Orleans or whoever might be. I'm always impressed with glacial and ship. And now it is our games thinking about players. If you don't have players it's hard to win means less by for example. You know I'm pretty generic game at east is without actually is without any mental he's without running back. He loses Glock late in the game and important time of the game. It's a player's game if you look at the moral instincts to transitions that they'd gone. No different roles as big part of what to do. Jimmy Graham was a big part of what they wanted to do. You bet you know it's hard replaced glory players in the years. It takes guys a little bit odd. I think deep sensibly one of the big issues as a you know again your your short on players are short on playmakers. And that's one of the hardest things that you deal with it. When it comes to being the coaches do you still in the cardinals six guys are applying. Places for our beat sensibly you know they were rated and most of the year you know it's tough to be able to play. Defense is number one offensive line's number two. Quarterback is number three. I think when you built between the sort in the real. And the quarterback being the most essential wanna be successful but look it would look successful. And look where the saints. In his that this goes into the team concept talked about that. The quarterback is the single most. As you guys don't catch don't block the sense don't stop kickers don't make kicks you can't win. And that's what the saints are doing a total team they're looking at a complete make over. And I hope it's on a chance to fight through this and able to put the came back and order competitive in the division. Have you recovered from the Stanford game. Now. No I mean I got a little bit re pretty yesterday that the Redskins stared at daylight jet jet like seeing do. Without injured little closer than I thought the Stanford game was just a it was it was a heart rate that was really great football teams going back and forth back and or. You know I think Notre Dame at I want to blank football team in the Irish. It's the most talent set of skilled players I believe it ever year and that group. A tight and running backs to what receivers to quarterback comedic look. You know additional on ties with was fresh Anthony's played eleven. Well that's it. I acts that is that is entire resident. Believe it was gonna start basically in the years. I think the future is very very right at Notre Dame. I hope that you know. Coach Kelly studies were consumed and at the start with the stadium. But you know it was it was a heartbreaker curse you know be in fourth and dropped out six and of course I would consider gonna play their warmth by I've never what was gonna happen. Other so different things that could've happened but. I'm very proud of what the Notre Dame football team was able to overcome a lot of mercy line. Saturday night's game was one of those and you hear it said where neither team deserved to lose speaking to college football you know on and if you've been following this drama. With LA issue in less smiles and then. Awkward press conference Saturday nine after Al let's miles it's that is good byes. And they kept being twisting in the wind for 22. Weeks have you ever seen anything like fanning college. Now I have a you know it's it's it's it's you know hearing your voucher amateur and would like you weren't while ago I get less a lot of credit where. Hang in through August to catapult them a couple of weeks the list. I'm. Out here which you do go by somebody else particularly we look silly issue. He's committed himself to the program there what was longest tenured coaches. You know mark Rick reed and Georgian port of fifteen years at a long time been in one place. And look at the same buildings look at the same meeting rooms start dealing with young players. I think college coaches are under great amount strain and and I just real ugly yet as of this morning he's still litter it's a simple. Well. Yeah knows and I don't after the way this'll story played out July need to think about that maybe we should check in on an hour by hour basis you know it's like you know will be. Out a search on. One quick thing within them trying to remember do you play for coach Gibbs. I can't get our. I'm my I came to the late George gallantry and number one pick to Miami Dolphins shortly. A plate approach seventy or 78 Jack party. Actually meet the starter and seven the year plate for him to three years Joseph Gibbs took over 81. And I like it hurt any five and so you know I've been fortunate to people with accept it for all being coached athlete for Tom Landry and probable. Bill Walsh in a global George Allen as a head coach and took it as a coach. Do you keep up with coach Gibson is restoring. Argue it you know he just he he just had a birthday last week. Geez you know is you know. Kyle won that. The Sprint Cup championship with this is fourth he now actually has one more Sprint Cup championship or Winston cup every one call. Oddly any doses of all know to get seven page yeah. Just you know we jointly I'll answer great I. You know started with Tony Stewart when he got into it. And I would ask are there to coach gives got into it and and I saw that he was a partner with whipped out Troy Aikman and I'm going you've got to be cute. You know he actual. And in part of the court I didn't even called I wish. Those totally shocked Laver yet. For those Joseph I appreciate you time and for those going to the international work Groce Itamar you're keynote addresses set for. Oddly the so 1 night at 1 o'clock ago. I'd I appreciate your your time Merrill deal we talked to you again. Here you that joke Liesman. Former Notre Dame well he might not you know former Notre Dame and Redskins quarterback. He should be in a hall of fame that's a travesty that he is not ninth when he two we come back we'll continue talking L issue in saints. And unless smiles I mean you know judges and that's interesting do you think it's over. Do you think the drama with less miles is over or did they just say then do they continue to negotiate behind the scenes I hadn't thought about that Tilley said it. Nine Tony three Tommy Tucker coming back of the W 928 foot in my nice man they GO seismic these men. Seems like ended. You know and I'm glad he said that because I always thought that was one of those urban myths. Or something that somebody came up with that they actually changed his name to rhyme with Heisman but they. Did not Gloria in homer to talk about LA issue. Glory they weren't eating pretty carrier I'm good timing. I want to make a comment the last call report general cable Ricky we talk about Burke coordinator position and let's pop in every angle photo shoot. And not just sort of brought it again. I didn't tell people has it been like it's not get any traction that I think you're he would get our. Beat Steve Spurrier off. Optical coordinator. Develop quarterbacks and assorted offenses mine he's a great offensive coach. You think you have any interest and then. If he doesn't like. Beer Tarver is on in from South Carolina to sit on the sidelines you're like we're in trouble on coached football. And I think he's gonna get picked up somewhere. But all resting you know without its own had been present and in running for mayor or anything like daddy might like to stay in it. That's semi retired but he does have all the pressure of a head coach knowledge duties of head coach. Exactly and then my. I think he is debt only develop our. Our offense that definitely needed. But the quarterback situation that the one component that we don't have it and get that figure. Will be back in Wales. You think less miles as it just. Leave the offense alone just alone just stay out of it. I've beaten. You could look at that game from. The whole first half. It was not a crazy. You think he couldn't put engines for at least a serious so you know something artwork and let trot that the note about the definition of them and the keep doing the same thing and expecting different though. I would give less headphones and I'd have them like playing a recording of a game from this year that's about you so he thought he was involved. But he really wasn't I'm glad you count glory are. Having today I 260187. If you want to get involved too and of course. Firing CJ and maybe you know it would be better for him maybe ease interest in coming coach in the saints' receivers and because they seemed. As they were a lot better but as like different people to. Texans and Tommy just watched you with the man's career ending injury by Lawrence Taylor coach. We met here we decided the one thing we were not going to ask him. Was about his league because you know every conversation he as begins with a man someone Lawrence Taylor broke away. And where does that conversation go from there edit in my career. Well when that happened. 931 time now for double W offers news that we immediately. They wanna hear this next two or why is it that you went to UNL and think you know more than miles head coach of Allah issue. Let herself be taken shouted you know there which is completely and totally unfair unnecessary lot of people's you know good news conference school in the state. Armchair amateur last week you were leading being miles crackers flip flop first off. I don't that you be change your mind that makes you flip plotters secondly I didn't change my mind. I said last miles deserves another year amateur days Tommy do you think the way less miles mistreated is acceptable. Or reflects well on the the way to hire you at athletic department and the only issue. The administration conducts itself you my friend should have gone you know because you would know better. So what does study about now if you. If you'd drink coffee it's good for. Three to five cops. Is just fine and according to a day. Yeah no problem at all they say. The the Harvard students are Harvard study usually gets you know gets a lot of attention. But you increase your longevity. And your chances are reduced. Having an early death by 15%. I'll take it. Let's three to five cups a day we get. I handled it like to hear how much coffee do you drink a day in what is the latest you can drink and be able to go to sleep. I know some people have big cup of coffee did to relax them and and get him to go to sleep I know people like that's it I'm not one of them not idea that'll be up to lord knows what time I did try to drink a cup of coffee or did drink one. Yesterday in the hopes of staying alive and I'm not trying to be as smarty pants in just onion truth now that. To stay awake during the second half of listening to grow and I didn't do it could be. Bomb as painful. While it was and do you believe in any of these studies. Going to talk about the saints and L issue in less miles on those Anderson would Joseph thighs and said. Have you heard anything lately. Because we all presume. That this is over now but maybe it's not in terms of flip flopping maybe you know well she concerns as yelling you know we changed their mind things changed. Wow and I you know Heidi that is strictly speculation. Joseph thighs and I think was kidding about that but. I don't put a lot of stock in these studies about coffee because I guarantee and a couple of weeks and I have one that says. If you drink too much coffee. This then our guys are jittery again maybe owners are good for. You majoring read one good for you if you don't drink red one bad point. Now they're holding firm on this three to five business probably more towards the three. Than the five but but that's the you know that's the cushion you've got. Two in creature longevity. I would said during about 5 cups during a morning easy afternoon YouTube. Argument calling OT 60187. A did you watch. The entire saints game yesterday. And if you did it. Why. And I try to be Smart about that either but I'm serious did you watch the entire saints game I tried. And couldn't. But limit to what you did to 60187. AM in terms of less miles are you glad or said. That he's staying or mad rather and what do you think of the way this whole. The whole way LHU handled this the entire thing. And do you think it is an embarrassment for the schools to 60187. Any. And if Lou were up to you and you work F king Alexander and Ngo Oliva together and you were the king. And yet to decide whatever it was to happen would you still have less miles. As your coach. Attacks candidate comes its media speculation that causes problems. Not LHU gotta disagree with that because the media. Only reports what they hear and L issue Joseph Oliva should have come out somebody. And say no that's that's not true at all last miles is not going anywhere. But the fact that he didn't. I think proves that now they were try inning couldn't make it happen. I somewhat in the Auburn Alabama game yesterday casinos Jordan keeps texting me every three minutes about the game site and put it on. And I notice Tim Cook. Who is now running ample. Is apparently an Auburn along. So. His net worth is 785. Million dollars was gummy thing and about Charles Barkley who is also. An Auburn lawman who do you think is worth more. Tim Cook Charles Barkley who do you think. And one of running formulate their. Yeah it's Tim Cook by way Charles Barkley words they measly thirty million dollars. Tim Cook on the other hand 785. Billions. Big ones you don't wanna but he can afford that latest apple technology when it comes out. I'm Betty yen ability on him to stand in line John in Metairie morning under the WL. Date down the right edge on. They're making all around mattered. To please. Yeah bucket like that in the law. That he threatened to bail Malloy watching. After the first pass under the cricket big in more with the auto what it all back Maltby. You said you that your ability to life when you say that you really mean McCarty and I'm using an account euphemism right. I just check in Italian giants are this morning talking about it. Don't know take the dog for a ride on a bike and manor house on 1145. All kinds of guys with. The latter route wives or girlfriends with a my guess helping to put the Christmas lights up. Get away from Adobe technology and I even cared to turn it on one. What are at the ballot and happily we think is going on with less miles LSU had his last page in turned at least silly in the next season. Let. Personally. How would like being built on the stand lights there. You they aren't. Was it fair to treating like that go look for this whole thing to revolve like it did. The yeah yet still love the recruiting purposes and all that yeah. It they said that competently. Got you thank you John Mack arena as certainly don't think it is help recruiting anyway they. They lost one of the prospects wasn't who wasn't a quarterback anything laws. I highly recruited by and I could be wrong about them though it was a highly recruited quarterback Troy had met three. Aid agency John drive and I. Order a disease that is driving that mattered was up. An ID card. Go back a year. So. Remember that remark about it. He get the iced it. Of people don't know I've made and that was along time ago Troy made that reference to goodfellas where they were already yeah. A fire last and then Joseph Lieberman leaned over and says red. King Alexander leaned over talent that the moratorium and they'll do. It is steroid front at the end it all he did get the ice and do you think. That there is still more maneuvering going on when it comes the last miles and that. Interactive. Via the mobile. That he'll. Be bird you know all of it all. Series. They're believed it but part. Just picked it. At the end of the season. You know what Troy that that is a very plausible scenario that you just pain in my mind. Because that that that passion the holiday the poor less is gone and I don't mean that to make finalists miles I'm just saying now was the the mindset right so he stays coach is a bull team everything's in place for recruiting. And then after the bowl game maybe date. Is part of that confidentiality. Eight from a couple extra dollars and then before you know it. Maybe he decides to step down and then you get the new guy coming it. Org you picked it. Well no we don't obviously don't get hurt and I'm saying where it is once you're and you never get out right. Trying to ID call me and you come up with that yourself and I think is pretty interesting thank you oh well the saints that you watched game yesterday. Yeah guard properties. The late Burt former their. The thought undergo back before ordered the UK it is just great theater. When you say. Based. And a good week against Monday ninth it creates a T 601878. Did you last comments and on Alex U unless smiles and do you think Troy has a point. They're the only thing. F king Alexander he'll leave I guess there's somebody from the boosters there. When they announced that less miles and staying. And Anderson threw the 2016. Season or did they sane. In to 26 team. Because depending on when a bowl game was that could be in 2016. Interesting we'll go back and listen to it 260187. He if you want to weigh in Tommy Tucker back in a flash and have them. I Garland Robinette is coming up with the old think tank.
