He's suspended for the first path of least some of those game after his latest. Off the field shenanigans at sleeper that was BB guns. At all curious I didn't know walking out these crab legs and now yelling obscenities on campus and we're going to bring into the show Ralph Russo whose college football ladder from the AP. What's going on with this young man in and some of the college kids though it. Are are they being so spoiled in the high school that they can get by than anything that can go to college and do the same thing. Well I. I think in India and it went in case. The only year excuse last year as we all remember burglary at a note there were court So either unit and and I think it's important to remember that the court and however. You other sort of minor incidents. Of stone crab leg BB gun that links soda. And now it's where he's sort of shattered said the jokingly but not appropriately. In a in the cafeteria floor. And it gets. But what you want you sort of wonder if somebody or. I sat down with him and explain that you sort of one out of all Europe you'll leave your won't be all. Lack that we can sort of giving you can make sort of built in staying in because your he would. Really gone it's what you have to be in your position because you're so high profile. And at the of the team that they can call or you'll be actually a little better and everybody else. And either that message is not being delivered appropriately Clark state or do you not getting. Because they. What he did meet him at all it but he's not understanding. That issues in the age. It has been crap that certain out because of all the incident and needs to be better. In most and he's just not doing so are they it can't they've really put their put down all our. But they most important game a year back to our core. is that is that about. Right is that is that really apparently half a game 11 that really make it means something and making the entire game. You know that that's a fair question and again. With the all these incidents get this thing alone probably. You can make a good argument early word BO.

You though that the courses united story on disappointment. As he years few weeks back and part of what. Went into the message that sort of came from the coaches it. We don't deal with everybody the change you earn what you get so outstanding citizens when they their line. There again a little bit of leeway there again the chance to redeem themselves be not much I'll be put that. Told the mortality and balls down to the mortality of the Entergy. Well you have I mean but in there there's going to be. There's going to be. A sort of ratio. How important law aren't you choose good discipline and get it your all the coaches. You know Elliott and some corporate route again. They are still. Dirt by wins and losses so it put them in the typical situation. But I guess addressing your first question. You have to parent has not necessarily consistently the people in your locker room understand now it's so and so. Cut discipline but so and so picture is bid. So He stepped that line a little bit goal lead you aren't accurate at all time you don't get that kind of that kind of discipline you get The idea as you know you can certainly can set an all time that you have to be there all I mean you're right you need that because they're not that when you lose a lot.

Also we're talking about that there are some experiments that some school district should try and another one in South Carolina. Assuming no homework at. All I'm home so you think that's a good lead the most of the people's warning of thought that that is not a good they think that the kids.

In the heat of the back cover vote if they don't push or shall then be back for a couple. And and we were led to believe that this was going to be so great but. Even after the game and vote the talk about after after we played Atlanta. I remember one of the first things going back on three years ago. One when I was doing a show in the afternoon with. With And he said. Always remember. No matter how good you look. Or how bad you're pre season. It's three season and boy do we radar defense looked like and that will get a shut everybody out. And where sleeves and and and ban on the season begins and you fall apart so we just they pumped up for the vikings. whirlwind weekend. But but he wanted Mormon but still telling the world but it. What else was. Wells is on your mind. About these eight people were recalled earlier in all the churches we're talking about their fair enough and they're so the morale is. That he thought all probable well you if you wanna be prayer because true and that that means. No matter YouTube star player. you're going to be when they have to crawl toward. Well that's why that's why I asked they announced that it sounds like you're telling me that because he's gonna lose talent. That's why they aren't coming down on in the as well I didn't really available at about what you said the. We're right in that in you all OPEC took and Bear Bryant being your name doesn't occur to you the Sugar Bowl right enjoyed it for the first team all American and he his older. Opera or football game. So. But you know what should get it right you've got to know that that took and do you really thick. That let's go to the Adrian Adrian Peterson case with what with Minnesota. If if that'd in some practice squad player. Who had been accused of the same thing that cutting them in a big deal that it made a of a big deal about it and cutting right there but you know looked and it's. Money out of Internet and that And and I mean you know let's let's be honest let's say you analyze what let's say we're coaches and you Kutcher star player god that couldn't that. That could make a difference you know. You know if it would be hard to say that the view and I were in that position we would lean toward trying to find any reason to be lenient. Well and I can't get and I understand I know why aren't more or walk on guard and you don't get great. Good player but people are good grade school which spoke to do around. You're not go play your whatever they advocate. It'll bid for UN today I appreciate your vote in this morning. Thank you so much all right we have some one global that you want that part our conversation 2601878668890. It's heavily. Isn't Tommy talked to show I'm Bob insulin for Tommy and we will be right back before phone calls and text messages. Of the negates that but he WWL AM of them about job. And aggregate seventy Frederick where opinion poll question do kids have too much homework not enough or just the right amount. 43% say too much. 24% say not enough. 33% say the right amount some school district another South Carolina is actually. Experimenting and having no. No homework at all a couple of text messages real quick like. Ultimately get to the full personal combat text messages later let's go to Robert Robert are you say it's gonna win Sunday. I don't know orbit like him usually and nodding that I'm the And no that come down to the last minute hold I want to go through that. Do what you did two touchdowns on that's OK with me had a big. And the question. An important thing it on these guys in the our domestic problems. Well we didn't know anything about. I don't know I know the NFL you know does have a regular testing a program that today even though it's too random and texting program on the never know when they're going to be texted. Tested so. All forms whenever you blew an avenue and do in Iraq saying it. They got a used and it seemed to. Well I was talking about this the situation last night but when you think about it. Us plans. What do we want we want we want a defensive back or we wanna linebacker we wanna be hit harder and we want what we wanna see those big hits and would talk about the god. Being the unit absolute beast on sports that are they show these targets over and over and over again. I'm not defending anything but then these same people that. It did do all this hitting and become known for their inning then they have to go home and beat an average guy and I guess it's hard adjustment. I hear the same thing about people in the military. Yeah I had a friend that was in the military and law and when he came home from the war he couldn't sleep. In the same bed You can't in ninety thrown on. Allow you know and a lot of a lot of people and in the military you have high ranks that they're used to ordering people round. And they come home on the drug or Clinton around I don't want anyone to interpret that what these people have done. Is right it is absolutely wrong and I hope that the NFL. Immediately. Goes to zero tolerance policy. And and I believe in due process but if if you if you were accused of something like this than you know. The off the team and and until it settled I appreciate voting and Robert. Thank you all right all right Bruce you hang on I'll get to you right after the top of the hour news with David Blake on WW.

Experimenting and having no. No homework at all a couple of text messages real quick like. Ultimately get to the full personal combat text messages later let's go to Robert Robert are you say it's gonna win Sunday. I don't know orbit like him usually and nodding that I'm the And no that come down to the last minute hold I want to go through that. Do what you did two touchdowns on that's OK with me had a big. And the question. An important thing it on these guys in the our domestic problems. Well we didn't know anything about. I don't know I know the NFL you know does have a regular testing a program that today even though it's too random and texting program on the never know when they're going to be texted. Tested so. All forms whenever you blew an avenue and do in Iraq saying it. They got a used and it seemed to. Well I was talking about this the situation last night but when you think about it. Us plans. What do we want we want we want a defensive back or we wanna linebacker we wanna be hit harder and we want what we wanna see those big hits and would talk about the god. Being the unit absolute beast on sports that are they show these targets over and over and over again. I'm not defending anything but then these same people that. It did do all this hitting and become known for their inning then they have to go home and beat an average guy and I guess it's hard adjustment. I hear the same thing about people in the military. Yeah I had a friend that was in the military and law and when he came home from the war he couldn't sleep. In the same bed You can't in ninety thrown on. Allow you know and a lot of a lot of people and in the military you have high ranks that they're used to ordering people round. And they come home on the drug or Clinton around I don't want anyone to interpret that what these people have done. Is right it is absolutely wrong and I hope that the NFL. Immediately. Goes to zero tolerance policy. And and I believe in due process but if if you if you were accused of something like this than you know.

You're gonna talk state superintendent. Of education John -- about common core. And we did do that right now as a matter -- quickly it was guns and wanted to -- a couple of tax on says. My problem with common -- is why am I sending my kids to private school lift their being taught the same curriculum as a public schools student. So I would infer from that that they think the standards and private school -- being lowered to come and -- -- and another text right after it. My son understands that but it Saxony has another two to three hours of homework. After school. So I don't know if that's a matter of convenience or you don't think that anymore is being -- with the extra work on my joints right now Louisiana superintendent of education morning John. There are pretty gonna get another Texan pops up right here from common core what is a better way to introduce socialism. And it goes to the political. Component of this which I don't think would have existed back in the eighties but you tell me. Well I do think your right that a lot of this polarization does that is that. Product of a very typical political environment we're happy to be independent Lebanon do kids. Look -- let's be real we've got a job them in this state it's. The -- of the rest of our country but if we don't want graduates from California and Pennsylvania near -- between taken as jobs but we want our our graduates stake in -- job. We got to get them able to read and do map as well as any kid in the country and right now we've got -- -- ago until that the time. That we get their salute to raise the bar. In terms of Reading as a material. Substantially changed jury isn't viewed through different prism -- they edit text here earlier about. Common core -- they were reading an essay I think by Jack London about the evils -- thesis on the evils of capitalism there. Has anything changed agenda wise and immaterial. Then there's no common core SA there's no common core book there's no common core curriculum this is just a basic -- of descriptions of how well should it be able to write an essay. How well should -- be able. Do algebra and look I think it should be able to do algebra in the Louisiana as well they do it and organ or Florida or anywhere in between. And right now we're not there yet so we've got to raise the bar. But local Korea a local school systems in local schools are the ones to choose the major on whether they want right leaning left -- anywhere between that their business and it's not we're not gonna tell you. How to teach your kids to read. But we're gonna demand your kids be able to read beat on a level which is good as any kid in the country. I've heard so much from parents you know all of an anecdotal about. Different ways to do -- they tell me that two plus two doesn't necessarily have to equal four is that the case. And that's actually not the case but let's talk about where we are with -- Right now only 8% of Louisiana's -- state algebra in the grade. And you wise that will when you try to act as we've been teaching -- shortcuts. Forever. If Hitler -- and they learn how to induced you know this quick way to survive in this book went multiply and all that but what they don't do. It's actually understand how to break down numbers put back together again they can do the math problem but they can't understand why they did it that way. All were sent to kids now let's think about it. Let's critically think about it let's reason your way through -- so that as -- on an algebra and calculus and then into life. You can reason your way through problems it's time to raise the bar and our state now Tom you've got to do and a gradual way. We don't think that just turnaround tomorrow and say well everybody is not a standard whether teachers or students. Is an acceptable way to do it we do think we need to state this changing gradually. -- it -- it'd be. Is so gradual as to start with there's some money suggested with a tax severance kindergartners and you move a -- one year's time which I guess would take. Twelve years -- fully implement. Well I think we should. Make every family and every child make the standards available to them now and we don't want to say. We'll just get your thirteen years old rocket teacher to a higher standard to. How -- and you wind up with. Twelve years. As far as the theory goes with until kids are prepared. Yeah exactly you don't wanna wait that long. At the same time. From an accountability perspective and some of the sanctions in the tough measures that conflict that yeah I -- think we should say is that ever Tom we're not gonna change its education system overnight. But I do think we should raise the bar for kids. As quickly as we can and then over time -- in some of the tough measures that come when that. You know we talked about less miles earlier this hour in and you know us some people -- human Massa leading and replace him with generally have an answer forming units an emotional decision does give some -- on here with with common core aware. Some people for whatever reason don't like it may be because of the political argument. We're 49 in education our fiftieth we keep flip flop and would Mississippi but yet. They don't really have an alternative idea. But we've got an alternative -- it's called the bubble tests that we've had for fifteen years and there was a time when those bubble tests were kids take paper and pencil filibuster bubbles. Served their purpose threw well but coming I think it's time we get beyond that -- You don't graduate from high school and then you'll want to sort of bubbles. If we get beyond that raised the bar past our kids to think critically like they do in the real world we'll have to solve problems if they learn to do that. And they're gonna do well on life they're gonna take these jobs and make an abundant life for them and their families right here a moment there's nothing more important enough. John who's boss. But about this is the Betsy or my rip off the teachers -- kids don't know -- -- how -- the governor's involvement -- well round. Well governor -- -- -- to to support mean in coming out like I really you report to -- -- state board of education levered support and. And there's a point to this and it's that the governor's probably as a right as you gonna find in terms of what he says when he's campaigning Louisiana very red state so. It would take some kind of conspiracy. To. Implement a program that people say is the equivalent of Obama. Care and education or something that is brainwashing kids because I wouldn't believe that the governor would sign on a matter of the -- board -- thing. I can't believe it would and certainly can't believe that president Romer in the best for when either. You know. -- but I after the governors say is he wants higher standards he does not want a federal curriculum and the best you board turned around pastor ruled that we won't take a federal curriculum. There will not be if federal curriculum now -- ever. In the Louisiana. But that doesn't mean we're gonna hold markets to a lower standard in how well they read -- -- You know from any other state in the country our kids are just as Smart. They're just as capable as any kid in America it's time we give -- the chance to show that I gents thank you appreciate your time thank you.
