I get started 10 p.m. Eastern, 7 Pacific. If you missed the first hour of the show, it sucks for you. You can go ahead and hit rewind on the Free Odyssey app. Then you can get caught up. You can hit pause. You can go to the restroom.

You can make yourself a sandwich. Whatever it is that you want to do, you don't have to miss a minute of the show. Thank you to everybody listening live on our many, I mean hundreds of CBS Sports Radio affiliates. Whether you're here in Atlanta, Georgia with me or you could be in Las Vegas or Seattle or Miami or Cleveland or Baltimore or Minneapolis or Chicago. What's up to my friends listening on 610 The Loop in Houston. What's up San Diego? I see you out there. Hello to all my friends in Honolulu.

It's actually, this is, I'm actually bothered about. We got a lot of people listening in Hawaii. I ain't get one invite out to Hawaii yet.

Not one. Nobody ever hit me up and said, hey, JR, come to Hawaii. Nobody.

Nobody. People tell me, hey, come have a drink. People hit me, say, hey, come to the restaurant. People do that all the time, especially here in Atlanta. Nobody hits me up from Honolulu. Somebody hit me up, please. But anyway, besides that, I am going to talk about sports.

It's what I did in the first hour. That's what they pay me for. We talked about the college football playoff rankings. Ohio State, Georgia, Michigan, Florida State still hanging out at number four. We talked about Michigan.

Yeah, not for football reasons, but for cheating reasons. Michigan is saying, hey, go look at those other teams in the Big Ten. Look at them. They might be cheating too. They're sharing information amongst themselves. Michigan is saying that Rutgers, Ohio State and Purdue, like they were sharing, you know, the signals amongst each other. I'm like, that doesn't sound like cheating.

It sounds like friends being friends. Michigan is just being a rat at this point. We talked about Blake Martinez. Speaking of cheating, how do you quit the NFL to trade Pokemon cards? You make millions of dollars scamming people with Pokemon cards, and now you have to sign back to the NFL. I know he's a linebacker, and so Blake Martinez, and I don't know, maybe a running back will run into him and talk trash. That is just wild, man. People got to talk trash to him the whole game. Like you came back to the NFL because you were scamming people out of Pokemon cards.

That's just nutty. And so for the rest of the show, I don't know if we're going to talk about scammers, but Carson Wentz, he might fit the bill. Carson Wentz apparently is going to be signing with the Rams if he can pass a physical.

That's not a guarantee. Bill Self got a nice new contract. He's going to go out there and I guess coach at Kansas forever. Will Levis is the new Tennessee Titans quarterback.

Ryan Tannehill, he's going to be the hell up on out of there at the end of the year. George Steinbrenner is giving his reasons as to why he didn't get Aaron Boone the hell up on out of the manager's seat for the New York Yankees. And then Bill Belichick, there's a lot of conversations about him getting the boot in the middle of the season. Wow. How you find Bill Belichick in the middle of the year?

Not that it happened yet, but Robert Kraft would be cutthroat if he goes ahead and does that. But anyway, 855-212-4CBS is the number. If you want to talk to me online through social media, if you don't got nothing better to do, I'm on all these stupid things. X, Twitter, Facebook, MyFace, FacePlace, all of it. I am at JR Sport Brief.

I think Bill Belichick still has a FacePlace account. Hey, we got people here on the line. They've been waiting patiently to hop on the phone lines.

I don't know what the hell we were talking about the last break. I actually showed love to Tulane. Much love to everybody listening down in New Orleans on WWL. And I got people calling me from New Orleans telling me about all the wonderful people who went to Tulane. And one of the callers, I don't know if he was in an alternate universe, he said that Sylvester Stallone played basketball at Tulane.

And I go, what? Like this man had time, I thought he was acting as a kid. Like when did Sylvester Stallone wake up and go, I'm going to play D1 ball for Tulane? Right, sure. 855-212-4CBS, we got Travis calling from Houston, Texas. You're on the JR Sport Brief. Show us up, Travis. Hey, what's going on JR?

Thank you for your time. Got a quick question in regards to the Michigan cheating scandal in comparison to the Astros cheating scandal. Your boys down here at 610 brought it up today and I was just seeing, do you think the NCAA would be harsher if Harbaugh is proven, I would say, guilty midway through the season versus what happened to the Astros after a season? Say it again, what?

So, you know how... Just the question part, just the question part, go ahead. So, do you think the NCAA will come down harsher on Michigan and Harbaugh, you know, if he's proven guilty in season than what we saw versus the Astros like, you know, postseason? Do you think it would be harsher than what you saw? I mean, I know it's professional sports, but... Travis, I don't think anything is going to happen. Like, this is why I believe that there's so many Big Ten schools that are trying to rush any type of punishment, because it's the end of the year. And I personally believe that Jim Harbaugh is going to be gone at the end of the season. And, like, if he's gone, what's the point? What are you going to, you're going to impose penalties on Michigan?

Like, tough, too bad. Not the first or last time that anything that's happened. If they win a national championship, like, who cares?

You understand what I'm saying? So, I don't think there's any comparison between what's going on with Michigan and what took place with the Astros. I think the Astros, we had guys like Cora and Beltran who were ultimately punished. Beltran didn't get a managerial opportunity based on what happened in 2017.

So, I would say that's a whole much, that's much more wide-reaching. I don't think anything's going to happen here with Michigan. Nothing that's going to have a major impact, especially for Harbaugh.

Alright, Dad. Well, I appreciate the time, but also, back to the Tulane thing. Coach Willie Fritz, man, he's killing it.

He was doing it at an FCS school when he was down here at San Houston. That's right. That's right. Well, listen, man.

It's a nice thing to see Tulane get any type of love, Travis. I'll tell you that. Yes, sir. Hey, thank you for your time. I appreciate it.

No doubt. Shout-outs to Trav for calling from Houston. 855-212-4CBS. Tom is calling from Hawaii. You're on CBS Sports Radio. What's up, Tom? Hey, Trav. How you doing, my friend? I'm excellent. How are you? I'm doing well. I was just getting back from some mountain biking, and I heard you on the radio complaining that nobody ever invited you out to Hawaii.

Yeah, nobody. And I thought that I would change that, man. Come on out. What city you in?

Where you at? So, you were talking about Honolulu. Well, first of all, you don't want anybody from Honolulu inviting you out, man, because I'm on the big island, which is way better. Man, listen, I've never been to Hawaii. There's Waikiki. There's Honolulu.

What's the other one? Oh, well, so Waikiki and Honolulu is on the same island, but I'm on the big one. I'm on the one with the volcanoes and stuff. No, I don't want to be on a volcanic. Well, the whole thing is a volcanic. Yeah, everything is volcanic. You trying to get me the hell off the planet Earth? Like, what are you doing? No, my friend, I just want to show you the Aloha Spirit, you know, and show you Hawaii.

We were talking and you wanted to see it, so come on out. I do, but are you inviting me to go mountain biking? I want to sit on a beach and have a drink. Oh, I got black sand beaches, my friend. I got white sand beaches. I got yellow sand beaches. I got snorkeling. I got drinks, hammocks, pretty girls.

It's all here for you, my friend. Pretty girls. Yeah. Hey, Shep, is this a good idea or a bad idea?

Yeah, I would say it's a great idea. Shep, come on out too, my friend. Appreciate it, Tom. I want to take you up on that sometime. Thank you.

All right, yeah. Okay, how long you been out there, Tom? I've been out here four years. I'm originally from Salt Lake City, Utah. You left Utah to go to Hawaii? I wonder why. Tell me why.

Because Hawaii is beautiful and I always wanted to live out here and I had an opportunity, so I seized it. The Red Rocks in Utah are not beautiful? Oh, they are beautiful. I've been blessed. I've lived in lots of pretty places. Oh, okay.

All right. Let me tell you, you were talking about imposters, especially Josh McDaniel. I've been a lifelong Denver Bronco fan and I can attest that as soon as the Raiders hired him, I kind of felt a little bit of schadenfreude.

I kind of smiled because I knew that this would come back to bite him in the ass, so this was not a surprise. They should have known after what they did to the Broncos and then the little switcheroo he pulled with Indy. Hey, I want to say, I'm telling you, and like I said, as a Broncos fan, I don't feel sorry at all for him. Well, I feel bad for you as a Broncos fan.

At least they're showing a little bit of life, right? Speaking of, once again, imposters, what happened with Russell Wilson? He ripped it up, let Russ Cook, and then he came here and it was like, huh? Listen, all you did. Like he forgot how to play or something, you know? Only thing Russell was cooking for the Bears. Yeah, you're right.

They are showing a little bit. Listen, man, hit me up and maybe I come to Hawaii, okay? Hey, no problem, man. Keep kicking ass. You're great.

I love listening to you. Appreciate you, Tom. Thank you for calling from Hawaii. He said, hey, I just came in from mountain biking. I was listening to the radio here in Hawaii, and JR, come to Hawaii. That didn't sound like a, that sounded like a half invite.

If he was really going to invite me, I'd be like, email you, JR, but he's not. Marcus is calling from Toronto, one of the most beautiful cities on earth. You're on CBS Sports Radio.

Are you in the snow? Like, what are you doing? Hey, there. What's going on? I'm okay. What's up?

Oh, not much, man. I respect your show. You do an amazing job every night when I'm on the road. Oh, I show my best. Thank you.

What's up? You know, I forgive your ignorance about the CFL. I forgive it 100 percent. There's a lot of people up here that don't even, don't even pay attention to it. But they're missing out on such a beautiful game. I got the NFL. Yeah, well, yeah, you know what? They do.

But they also got our league, which is completely different rules as well. Up here in Toronto this year, we have Chad Kelly. You remember Chad Kelly? Unfortunately.

No, not unfortunately. The man has turned his life around. He is working with kids all the time, doing whatever he can to be a role model to everyone in the city. He led the team to a 16-2 record, tied to the best ever in the CFL.

He was 15-0 when he played 50 percent of his math. This man has changed his life. And that's the Canadian Football League.

That's what it does for individuals, right? Changes lives. Doug Flutie was the same way. Okay. Doug Flutie was New English, Chicago Bears.

Couldn't do anything. Came up, played eight years at the CFL, went back down to Buffalo, showed everybody he had it. Well, listen, we can count those stories on one hand. Sorry. But don't give up on Chad Kelly. I'm telling you, pay attention. Read up about him. You're going to be surprised. This man has changed his life.

We like to see that. Listen, I'm here for anybody changing lives, but I'm happy for him. I'm not all that interested.

Hey, Marcus, thank you, man. Roll your windows up next time, okay? I can't. You can't? You can't roll your windows up?

My window, the ceiling is broken. So what do you do when it's, you know, negative five degrees outside? Negative five is nothing, brother.

Negative five is what? It's Canada, man. We like our cold. Listen, I've been in Canada. Hypothermia will kill you, Marcus. Take it easy, okay? All right, brother, take it easy.

All right, no doubt. I've been in Canada. Shep, what's the coldest temperature that you've been in, man?

Got to be under zero. What was it? In New York or somewhere? Where were you? Yeah, it was New York. It was like six, seven years ago. Remember it was like the coldest day? Was it?

In like a century. I don't remember. What was the temperature? Zero? It was below zero. Negative. With the wind chill. No, I forget.

No, no. I ain't talking about no wind chill. Oh, okay. What is the coldest temperature?

I would say it was probably like zero degrees, two degrees, but it felt like negative ten. Okay. Yeah, that's fine.

Two degrees is fine. It's okay. I forgot what year it is. Was that 2016 when Zach LaVine and Gordon had the dunk contest? That was like 2016, right?

You are a thousand percent right. And the reason I know that is because that was when the year before, remember Zach LaVine had like the Space Jam tank top? And he went behind the back when people thought the dunk contest needed to be done with.

And then Zach LaVine came in and like resurrected the whole thing. Man, all these things are a blur. I mean the years. Seems like yesterday. Seems like yesterday.

I couldn't tell you. What year was Jason Richardson? 2001? Jason Richardson was 02. So his rookie, he came in the NBA in 01. But when he won those back to back dunk contests, that was 02 and 03.

And I wish he would have. And that was against Desmond Mason in 02. Yeah, see, I can't remember the years. They all blend together.

No, they are. JR, doesn't it seem like yesterday Wiggins was a rookie? Like he's in year ten now.

It's crazy, man. Yeah, well, time flies for everybody. But I do remember 2016 in Toronto because I was there. And it wasn't no damn wind chill. It was like negative 20 outside in Toronto. Not no wind chill. You felt your skin burning and stinging when you went outside.

Anything that was exposed, which would probably be your cheeks and whatever skin is around your eyes. Man, it burns. It burns. I think anybody who's lived in a cold climate understands it's a whole other animal when you are not cold, but you are burning. The air is burning. You would never pay $50,000 to go to Antarctica, is what you're saying.

What's out there for me? A lot of ice and the coldest part of the world where human beings can venture to. Who's going out there for anything for scientific research?

People pay north of $50,000 to take expeditions there for leisure. There were also those people that went down to the Titanic. What happened to them?

Well, that's a fair point. Some lived to tell about it. Do you know how bad it was over Halloween? I saw the photos in New York. There were people dressed as, what was that thing called?

Ocean trade, right? Oh, I don't know. There were people dressed as the submersive or whatever the hell they called that thing. There were people dressed as that thing in the subway. How mean and nasty do you got to be to dress as something where four people perished in that thing? Let me tell you something. You want to talk about mean and nasty in the subway. Those go hand in hand.

You see video footage all the time. You think that's bad, JR. You know how it is in the subways. Halloween? I'm talking about a Halloween outfit. Just Halloween strictly because in the last week or so, grandmas are getting mugged and hit over the head for walking on the subway platform just because they're old. Man, I'm talking about Halloween and you got to get so dark.

No, I understand that, but that to me is mean. If you want to dress up how you want to dress up on Halloween, like, listen, there's a lot of people that wear a lot of revealing clothing on Halloween. I'm not going to stand in judgment because that's kind of the culture that we dress up for anything for Halloween.

Yeah, it's called going to work. I dressed up as David Shepherd. I'm sure you were JR Sportbrief on Halloween. Wait, were we here on Halloween?

Yes. I mentioned it like one time, right? We were definitely here on Halloween, yeah. Why didn't we do a theme for Halloween? What's wrong with us? Because you and I think for ourselves and we're original and we don't do gimmicks like other shows. I should have dressed up.

Yeah, we have such a digital presence. Come on, man. I would have put it online. I should have dressed up.

Would you have? Yeah. I dress up for Halloween every year. That was a Tuesday. That was a Tuesday. Yeah, I don't know.

I haven't dressed up for Halloween I think in, I don't know, a long time. Let's put it that way. Yeah. You know, I feel bad for kids that are really tall.

Why? Because they get dirty looks at like 10, 11 years old. Like Shaq? You know what?

I was actually, so I was recently reading about the biography of Shaq. And when he used to go trick-or-treating at 9 or 10 years old, they would say we don't give candy to teenagers. Yeah, get your big ass out of here. Right. And he was like, I'm 9.

They're like, get out of here. Yeah. I mean, look, man, I don't know if the year 20, it depends on your neighborhood. If you know your neighbors and stuff and you can go knock on doors. But there used to be a time where you can knock on a stranger's door and it would be okay.

I remember that. So, and I'm sure people can, I don't know if people in the Midwest can necessarily relate to this. Maybe not on the West Coast, but people in major cities can. So now you don't really trick-or-treat in buildings. There's people out front that have a lot of candy and you don't go inside anymore.

Apartment building. Correct. Why?

Because somebody has snatched somebody up? Yeah. Yeah.

It's just not a good situation. Yeah. And you know, listen, there's the exception to that. Like if you see someone with a lot of Halloween decorations outside their door, that's an apartment in presence that's welcome to be knocked upon. Yeah. Kids just don't want to be doing that in apartment buildings these days. It's okay to put the kid on Santa's lap though. It's all good. Well, that's different.

That's out in public. Oh, okay. Yeah.

All right. Well, I know it's nice to know that we went straight from, if you walk into Walgreens, we went right from Halloween straight to Christmas. Oh, JR, you know that's how it's been for a long time now. I mean, they just skip over Thanksgiving. No, it doesn't matter. November's a placeholder until Christmas. Yeah, absolutely. And then Mariah Carey shows up for the first time in 12 months. Yeah. How about that?

Some people are meant to retire. Mariah? You don't like Mariah Carey? How do you spell retire five years ago?

No? She don't need to make no new music. Her songs are amazing. Her range is amazing. Was amazing. Sure.

Was amazing. I'll give you that. Always Be My Baby, Heartbreaker. Like JR, they were doing a 2020 special on Dolly Parton. There are certain people that can sing forever.

You know what I mean? Was Dolly Parton still, can she still float in the ocean without help? I don't know about that, but I know she can still carry a tune. I know Tony Bennett was singing well into his early 90s and still sounds great. Are you saying Mariah Carey can't sing anymore?

I'm saying she is completely flat in her range right now. Wow. Okay. Yes.

Everyone knows it. I haven't heard. I don't know. I haven't listened to her. JR, I mean, she lip sings more than ever now.

And that's telling. Why sing? If you make all that money, why sing?

But you know what? She can show up and make money. Why sing? I'd rather hear from Lady Gaga or Ariana Grande. No thanks.

Or Demi Lovato. No thanks. You want to listen to younger people, no thanks. No, no, no, no. I'll listen to guys like Michael Buble or Josh- You're talking about the women.

Okay, no, no. You just said you'd rather listen to- I'll listen to Kelly Clarkson. She could sing. Man, I don't know no Kelly Clarkson. You know who, you very well know who Kelly Clarkson is. She's on TV.

I don't know no song. I don't know her talk show. No, but JR, no, no. Okay, you watched the inauguration. I'm sure you watched Barack Obama's second inauguration, right? That's like, what was that now? More than 12 years ago?

It was a decade ago, 2013. And by the way, Lady Gaga's not exactly young. I'm not saying she's old, but she's not- She ain't Mariah Carey, bro. She's a lot better than Mariah Carey.

Right now, it's not even close. Nobody cares about either one of them. No one cares about JR. Lady Gaga has one of the best voices on planet earth right now. Who listening to us cares?

Nobody. You don't think so? I guarantee you people that listen to sports respect Lady Gaga. First of all, she's done Super Bowl halftime shows. She's done Emily Bieber's serious games. Nobody cares. Okay. Listen, I care she's going to be in Batman.

That's all I care about. Fair enough, but there are thousands of people listening right now that are sick and tired of Mariah Carey coming along and singing on Christmas because she stinks right now. No, it has nothing to do with her stinking.

People are just sick of the song. If she's good, she can get away with it. She's not good anymore. There's a difference, JR.

There's a difference. When you get to a certain place, you don't have to sing anymore. She makes money hand over fist and she doesn't have to sing. Artists would love to be in her position. Mariah Carey doesn't have to do anything the rest of her life. Yeah, as long as she's on the right side of the camera, she's fine. Well, you know she's the biggest diva in our industry.

You know that, JR. You've heard stories. You're missing the point. She doesn't have to do anything. That's the point.

Flattened period. She doesn't have to do anything. Well, can we come out with new material, please? Can there be a singer that comes along and replaces her? No, who cares? She doesn't have to. No. Let her do nothing.

Okay. Wouldn't you like to do nothing? Wouldn't it be nice?

No. What I'd like, just like we demand in sports, is we want these athletes to come back and reinvent themselves. I find something better to complain about. If LeBron James is the best dunker and in-game driver we've ever seen, we want LeBron in year 21 to develop some type of semblance of a mid-range game.

Why can't we expect that from our artists? I don't give it, because it's athletics. I don't give a damn about LeBron Duncan at 50. Let him sit on the bench.

He's still doing it pretty well, by the way. And you called it. That so-called minute restriction was over after a game and a half.

Yeah, well, since Anthony Davis pulled his groin, so there you have it. Thus is life. It's the JR Sport Brief Show on CBS Sports Radio. If you don't have to work, then don't.

Learn from Mariah Carey. It's the JR Sport Brief. When we come back, we're going to talk about a guy. Well, he got a job now. He's back to work.

If he can pass a physical, it's Carson Wentz. I'll fill you in on CBS Sports Radio. You're listening to the JR Sport Brief on CBS Sports Radio. Hey, JR. Such a fan of yours, man. Thanks for taking my call. You know, you don't always get the most stain of callers, but you always handle it with such professionalism.

I really appreciate your content you put out, man. Call in now at 855-212-4CBS. It's the JR Sport Brief Show on CBS Sports Radio. Congratulations to Carson Wentz. Looks like Carson Wentz has a job. Misery loves company because the Rams have been dealing with a quarterback issue. Unfortunately, Matthew Stafford dealing with a busted up hand right now, so he didn't play in the last game against Green Bay. At 20-3, the Rams took an L. They got a record of 3-6. They're in a bye week right now, and so they decided to give Rippon the boot.

The man could only muster three points. What a shock, right? And so, who did the Rams call? Carson Wentz. The last time I saw Carson Wentz, I feel like he was helping to tank the Commander's season by throwing the football to the other team too many times, and it really lets you know how other teams in the NFL feel about Carson Wentz, because the man hasn't even been signed to a team up until now. And so, if he can go out and pass a physical in Los Angeles, Carson Wentz is going to be the latest member of the Los Angeles Rams. Now, by all indications, he's going to back up Matthew Stafford. Now, if Matthew Stafford goes down or his hand is busted up again, what have you, then we'll see Carson Wentz. But besides that, Carson Wentz will be sitting on the bench, and it's kind of a wild situation, because the last time that we saw Carson, I told you, I don't know what Ron Rivera was thinking, thinking or believing that Carson Wentz might be a savior, the last news that he made is when they cut him in February. Listen to this from Fox DC from earlier this year. Now to a news alert, and the Washington commanders have released quarterback Carson Wentz.

The team made that announcement earlier today. Now, according to ESPN, the move will save Washington more than $26 million on the salary cap this offseason. Last year, the commanders traded multiple picks to acquire Wentz. His time in Washington, though, never panned out. He played the first six games before breaking a finger and being benched for Taylor Heinecke, and also played against the Browns in a game which saw the commanders get eliminated from playoff contention. That was from February. That's the highlight of Carson Wentz 2023.

I guess getting released. If we see him playing I know Baker Mayfield had his little, you know, one two game show last year for the Rams. If we see Carson Wentz play. If you are Rams fan, I don't know how many exists, maybe five in St. Louis everybody else is angry. But if you're a Rams fan. Notice I didn't say LA.

You don't care. Do the Rams have fans. Do they in Los Angeles I know they always show celebrities and but do the Rams really have fans. You got to see Carson Wentz throw a football that's that's depressing.

He literally is like a redheaded stepchild. Nobody wants to see that man out there, but congratulations Carson Wentz getting another lease at life. Backing up Matthew Stafford, I hope it works out for him 855-212-4CBS is 855-212-4CBS didn't work out in Indianapolis didn't work out in Washington, didn't work out Philadelphia well anyway. Who the heck is this.

Let's see. So many people here. Who the heck is this Tommy from New Orleans, your CBS Sports Radio.

J.R. Como se va man. Happy Monday from Crescent City on Tuesday. You drunk? Sly Stallone did not play football for Tulane. Yeah, I think I knew that Tommy.

What else you got? And listen back off on the redhead stepchild, you know, I'm a redhead so I'm kind of sensitive so and Lady Gaga is talented. Nobody can argue with the mean suit or bad romance, but nobody puts baby in a corner.

Mariah Carey cannot be touched. Well, thank you, Tommy. Appreciate that. Okay. Yeah.

Well, I'm gonna say to that. Pat is calling from Springfield, home of the Basketball Hall of Fame. You're on CBS Sports Radio.

Hey, Pat, you're on the radio. I think. Hey, how are you?

I'm fine. Thank you. Do you know anything about Clay Travis's challenge to the WNBA championship ladies team that he wants to put he's going to put up a million dollars and put it find a high school team and challenge the NBA the WNBA ladies. What do you think of that?

I think he's a piece of trash human being who says a lot of things to garner attention. Oh, listen, I appreciate that so much because well anyway, I didn't mean to I didn't mean to talk about it too much, but I'm glad you have the opinion you have because I have one very similar and if they do go through with it, I hope the ladies do a great job. Thank you so much.

Thank you, Pat. I don't think it's going to happen because I think the ladies are a little bit more dignified than the end of saying that ass but Oh boy, I really agree with you so much. But that's I think he has he has the clout to make it happen and I sure hope if they did play that the ladies would be. I don't think so.

I mean to have to have professional women's basketball. What is he trying to set them up against high schoolers, right? Oh, well, he's going to take the best high school the best boys high school team. Well, no, he has said in the past. You ever heard you ever heard about this phrase where people with how do I say this? You know men who are insecure. Oh, yeah about themselves. Oh, yes.

With little things. They're the ones who say the louder you get what I'm saying? Well, he has he has said on his radio show political show. He has said that he could beat any WNBA ladies playing he could beat any one one-on-one in a basketball game. That's how crazy he is.

Yeah, he has some insecurities back. Well, thank you for calling from Springfield. All right. Well, thank you for your opinion. Bye. Bye.

Absolutely sure. I mean if you're a man and you got a scream about what a woman can't do then what does that say about you? You sound like a little punk ass. I mean it come on now and it's nice for him. If that's what you have to do to garner attention. We live in a world where the biggest idiot with the biggest mouth and the people who screams and yells and garners attention. It's great.

It's great for business. If you kick man does everybody need to be a complete ass like stop come on, but people pay attention to it. So there you have it village idiot eight five five two one two four CBS. That's eight five five two one two four CBS. Carson Wentz is back in the NFL. Good for him. I'm going to tell you about a college basketball coach.

He ain't going anywhere. I'll fill you in on the other side. You're listening to the JR Sport Brief on CBS Sports Radio. You're listening to the JR Sport Brief on CBS Sports Radio.

I do want to say I've never called in. I love listening to you. I've been listening for years and man your show.

What you say is beautiful. Call in now at eight five five two one two four CBS. It's the JR Sport Brief show on CBS Sports Radio eight five five two one two four CBS.

That's eight five five two one two four CBS. I did tell you that Carson Wentz is back in the NFL going to be signing a new contract with the Los Angeles Rams. That if that's if he can go out there and pass a physical and he's going to back up Matthew Stafford who's been dealing with a thumb injury. And then there's not necessarily a guarantee that we're going to see Carson Wentz because the Los Angeles Rams. They're basically on a bye week right now. So Carson Wentz. He has to buy some time and I'm not thinking he hopes that Matthew Stafford has an injury, but I think he'll be back.

We'll find out soon enough someone who you don't have to worry about going anywhere. Kansas basketball coach Bill Self. I was minding my business as staff or excuse me this afternoon and I was watching CBS Sports HQ and this popped up. Breaking news coming out of the college basketball world and Bill Self apparently reports that he signed a lifetime contract to remain the head coach of the Kansas Jayhawks.

He's been there since 2003 at the helm in Lawrence, Kansas. His current contract was set to expire in March, but is being replaced with a new five year rolling agreement that automatically adds one year at the conclusion of each season. This man is making eleven million dollars this year. John Calipari is making eight and a half mil. They're going to take a look at his contract in another three years and just change it up again. That's that's pretty much what it's going to be.

The Bill Self. I know last season as Kansas was in the March Madness tournament. I know you had that heart issue. And then even last month, Kansas had to deal with the ramifications of that that scandal, which was just widespread across all of college basketball with those Adidas guys trying to influence the players. It's crazy how much just over the past couple of years college has changed. Ain't nothing wrong with Adidas or any brand, you know, chalking up some money, throwing cash at players. But that's that's what it was.

That's the system of that we lived in. And I think Kansas ultimately getting a slap on the wrist because of that eight five five two one two four CBS. And the season is already underway for Kansas.

So expect them big things from the Jayhawks this year. They got that guy. What's his name? Can't think of a kid's name. He's like seven foot two.

I guess we got all these Victor Winbenyama Giants growing on trees. Eight five five two one two four CBS. That's eight five five two one two four CBS. We got Ron in Miami. You're on the JR Sport Brief Show. What's up, Ron? Yes. You just took the words out of my mouth about the scandal about Bill Self.

About a few a couple of years ago. They're playing for the NCAA and all these allegations on forward. They go ahead and win the national championship and very next season. He's suspended only for games. Hello. Yeah, you're live on the radio.

I'm like, that's all I had. So he's he's suspended only for playing football games for playing JR University in this university, that university. So now we're looking at Hall Park, the same situation where he's suspended earlier for games that don't make no stand. But you haven't won the national championship yet, but everybody is slamming him.

Well, like I said, like you said, Bill Self, same situation. He got slapped on the wrist for it. He gets an eye.

He gets he gets the extension. So I'm looking at the hypocrisy about us over college sports. That's that's the point.

That's the comment I'm making. And it seems to me like you said also earlier, it's like a university or university. University seems to be conspiracy conspiring against Michigan and Harbaugh.

And we don't want to say what university that is. Well, look, this is it's it's business. It's it it's just it's a business like people want to get a leg up.

And I think, Ron, we all know this. It doesn't just stop at at athletics like everything about college or university. Education is a business.

And thank you, Ron, for calling for Miami. Like, don't get me started. Education shouldn't be a business, but it is.

All right. I know it operates differently in other parts of the world. But if you look at sports at every level, even at the college level, it's a business. So does the NCAA care? Do the conferences care? No, not really. They want to maintain their standing so they could do what?

Guess what? Make more money. It's as simple as that. It's that nobody cares about cheating that much. It's just like, how can we move on from this?

How can we go ahead and maintain some type of integrity and then go make money from somewhere else? It's the name of the game. Eight, five, five, two, one, two, four. CBS and it's calling from California. Your CBS sports radio. What's up, man?

Hello. Thank you for having me on your show. And I just thank you for educating me on all these sports. I called because I heard your comment about the Rams. My husband is a diehard Rams fan from California. And I might have to take him to the hospital when he comes home tonight about this Carson Wentz backup quarterback. He's just the backup, just the backup. Well, you know how their legs been going. He might have to play. Oh, well, listen, at least Matthew Stafford ain't dealing with tingling in his arms from last year. That a little too much. Right. And I have also one other question slash comment. I'm a Vikings fan, diehard.

I want to know your opinion on this job. You just you just ticked off all of my my listeners here in Georgia. I know I did. I know you like you like you like you like being you like making people's lives miserable. Hi. I'm a Libra. It is.

It comes natural. Oh, listen, I don't know nothing about astrology. What Libra's are the lions. Is that what that is? No, I'm the scales. So whichever way my scales tips, that's what you're going to get. Yes.

Oh, the scale. OK. All right. All right.

Right. Well, thank you. And I learned something today. You're very welcome.

And I learned something from you every day. And you guys had me weak about Mariah Carey. Thank you so much. Well, you're welcome.

Mariah Carey makes me weak. So it makes both of us. Thank you for calling from California. OK.

Thank you so much. No doubt. Joshua Dobbs. Don't give me don't get me started. I want how the hell do you how the hell you saw with an NFL team and beat another NFL team.

And you ain't even been there for two days. Like you don't even know your teammates name. And you beat the Atlanta Falcons are a joke. I'm sorry. My apologies to everybody here in Atlanta listening in particular, the the people who work for the Falcons. But y'all know it. How you saw with a team walk onto the field.

They just said, hey, man, here's a uniform and you walk onto the field and you beat another squad. Come on. Atlanta Falcons need to stop playing football for the rest of the season. Pathetic.

That's a shame. Josh Dobbs. The Cardinals didn't even sell his jersey. It's the J.R. sport. We show, you know, CBS Sports Radio 8 5 5 2 1 2 4 CBS.
