Have financial capital financial This is the Adam gold show + sound the wall of sound is a function of this part since I teased it. We got a story Brian Kelly here so I Kelly go jealous you know the long time at Notre Dame where he was largely humorless, but so he goes to LSU member you did being the fake southern accent because you want to be me on my family like my Brian next week anyway so weekly press conference lines got a nice nice pork codon look so it's very dapper very very buttoned up. If you will, and this was, I believe yesterday right Tuesday press conference head coach come in and whoever LSU play next and let's let's roll person and I were excited about the weekend so that will will open up to this late arriving media crowd that most of the enjoyed the weekend at usually $10 report in the kitty for we will have a big bash at the end of the year at my place when it has been on time.

Maybe if you win will be on time. Yeah so I was actually Leah Van Lee event was the one you actually said and she actually did post a tweet saying press conference was at noon I was running from a doctors appointment got there at 1157 Brian Kelly call me out so jokingly I wouldn't embarks. I said he wanted to be on time not find salaries. She said she apologize. Afterwards he was super chilling still set out in 10 bucks.

Excellent excellent reaction from her after the fact because my my take on this. Look, I am no fan of Brian Kelly. I like a lot of people I will never forget that he put a student in a crane up in the air during wicked winds. Yeah I'll never forget.

I like maybe it wasn't his decision to put together but he wasn't oblivious anyway. With that said, just got humorless Brian Kelly as close as he's going to get to making a joke.

He did do. I think Brian Kelly was serious there when Kelly said you know when he made fun of the late arriving media. I think he was.

I think he was a little put off.

Which is unfortunate for him. I mean everybody's got situations.

Nobody nobody wants to be late so Kelly was making a joke sorta in the proper response as Leah figured out after the fact. The proper response is just a laugh just just chuckle the big deal of your colleagues are going to think any less of you because you showed up a few seconds late Brian Kelly Prescott, so the response. The initial response from her was not great, and that's all it's not a big deal.

I'm glad they kind of whatever buried the hatchet if you will. Afterwards, so awesome to go delightful comics. That's right, he should've blocked her on Twitter immediately. Why well done by by all parties are not rules that coach of the Carolina Panthers. We are to to offerings from Matt ruled the first is the about the quarterback Baker Mayfield and others as we start the season on Sunday against Baker's old team the Cleveland Browns Baker here. I surround Chris McCaffrey and Jack Thompson.Ajax and all those guys figure she don't want to 53, but he is our quarterback know where we are serving a rally around and I want Baker to be Baker on the one being the also the what is.

But know this discuses a game of 11 guys executing together and we want to be connected as team justices about office defense and special teams.

This is about your work.

You left tackle epigram plague is one of your players in the game. This is about our defense facing to the preeminent running backs in the game. There's a lot of storylines in this one so well right now. Today was really still focused on asking electrostatically limit things we think we have to improve have a chance in the game source items I see bigger play the first time and am excited to Christian back out there and many many more hypos around Dante Jackson that he save look, I I understand why you want to downplay it is Baker versus Cleveland, I get it. And I also think that that part is overblown, but I also think that there is part of Baker that would like to shove it no to the Browns. I do believe that and I don't think that anybody would be surprised if after the game if Cleveland if if the Panthers beat the Browns if Baker just feels a little bit more spectacular but nothing wrong and that is okay and that is okay.

I want more from Matt ruled this is on Henry Anderson, the brand-new defensive tackle who apparently has great versatility. Even if I don't understand to gather tidewater strikeforce player we've been looking for someone to play along with you tore that first and second down big defense event for us to have a lot of speed with the Brian Burns is the Marquise Haynes that my borrows with someone. The kid some could fill that role play in the six technique the five technique before I also then kicked out of your three technique in nickel situations you Henry to got us that in the league for several years with a chance to see him which when practiced against New England.

So when when on the injured list for them. Someone we immediately targeted. I don't understand what what numbers correspond what positions I don't that's a ranking system that role is ranking him on a 3 to 6 scale. What is it best that a seven because of its what if it's 1 to 10, then that's not great.

Now so but I get I got six different different spots on the defensive line. Matt ruled getting all football. He will become back should say this 30 minutes from right now JJ Janssen Carolina Panthers long snapper and has been for number of years will get his take on Baker Mayfield and if he feels the hype around Dante Jackson. I can't wait for that JJ Janssen will join us at 240 today. But when we come back. Taylor czars are from PGA Tour radio and the NCC network toggle college football at Taylor's well next I will hear from my man coach Pete through the capital financial advisory group. We are talking retirement coach simple. When we start tax planning retirement should start as soon as possible because here's one thing that taxes are not going away and so the game here is we know the rules. A lot of people want to ignore the rules or act like they don't offer me with a virus. Those rules and so we get retirement.

The region start taking some of their money out your accounts so the secret here is to put a force field around as much as possible. By strategically moving some Romani to Roth IRA were some of the other vehicles that are taxed like a special life insurance policies you can borrow against your money there and never have to pay tax on your money to build up inside your Space up there a lot of strategies here. One strategy that does not work is ignoring mature and not ignored the next 10 people will do for you your very own tax and retirement plan help you minimize taxation with the retirement 800-661-7383. All you got is call or you can text Adam to 21000 for coach Pete the road we will talk JJ Janssen long snapper for the Carolina Panthers coming up in about 25 minutes will find out what he thinks of the new starting quarterback of the Carolina Panthers lottery even though Matt role said otherwise.

There is a lot of hype around Baker Mayfield and that is cool role about her all about that and like Gary get ready for today. We spoke to him earlier there again speaking very highly of the way Baker has positioned himself going into the season. Somebody who has seen the Panthers up close can talk NCC and college football and golf my friend Taylor czars are today job is. I know the storm every morning as I'm driving in on the starter and PGA Tour radio and he does all those other things. Josh amazing retail.

I'm living like a lot of job are all really on one and you, Rob very kind to support me and right now George versus pampered play-by-play board in my hand. So if you have any questions about 2D 40 that matter on even need the four deep.

I think just died. I think that side, you will definitely need the four deep. So good luck memorizing that. Let me first of all among all the things that you do. If I got this right from listening to you in the mornings that you're going to be the first.

The announcer at the Presidents cup. Is that true yes sir, you have never done that. So after work, broadcaster pipe, you know you have always sounded younger you are the same thing about me right after work on. Maybe my you know might be show here no chance in the next couple of weeks as a guy was a student of the game Iva Robson, who for years was the first time announcer at the open championship has a high-pitched voice it doesn't make a difference as long as you pronounce their names correctly. That'll be fine, but we're going to announce some names for the international team that a lot of people don't know and I mean it just a kind of golf this up for a second, Trevor Engelman, the captain is in a tough spot. I think you know Kim Davis a good young player in Taylor Pedro from Canada is a really good young player but man it's a lot different when cam Smith Mark Leishman Lewis Jason aim answer are on your squad. Adam, I think any PGA Tour that lived golf. I think it's Mike Martin you were to go through the last three months and lived golf work was created, you would say wow is a really big hurry Monday, Wednesday, Thursday. By the time the PGA Tour event. You really didn't think about what playing in those events. As an example, a few weeks ago when will Dallek Torres Rocco were battling it out. I think everybody found that it meant to be compelling and I didn't think Brooks Got right in the Sambo Dustin Johnson art here boy, where are they different. I would argue almost all of the time it didn't feel any different.

I think that you're right because of the names you just said is going to feel different.

Certainly, from a competitive standpoint, I think all of us expected to feel different. I hope I'm wrong. Nope it's competitive for four days and it goes down to the wire we get up really I can tell you that the buildout is bigger than any player what they had built at Quail Hollow. Charlotte and the amount of people to be 40,000 people following the action. Each day, and there's only four or five groups a day singles matches on Sunday there's going to be humanity on three or four different holes on the golf course. Following these group going to feel really big.

I just don't know really how it gets going. What you just said I feel Trevor Melinda Capt. international team. I think you done the best job and it feels like some of those selections you just reference are you trying to match up with somebody that automatically made the team.

That person might be most comfortable with all automatically, and his best friend Taylor would make you know it makes me instead of just trying to put the best right layer on the gene that puts a mighty honors loves to play with and maybe that will help cancel the deficit to some degree that the international team have, but it's a real bummer.

It really is an and I know that the PGA of America laws.

The European players only playing in the right and I know that the DP won't only love European players playing in the Ryder Cup but this thing is a blowout, don't be surprised to hear some announcement made at where they say okay to have at least a couple of Europeans in the president maybe maybe they do Europeans under the age of 25 right like they do in the in the Olympics that you're only allowed a certain number of players like in soccer over the age of 23 that's it for the most part, a younger team but then we we we kind of expand so so Ochoa can still playing goal for Mexico. Even though we highly 40 so maybe something like that but yet so this is the this is the all the makings of an absolute blowout if I can if I can swing it. I have yes we were at one point, hoping to come down there and broadcast, but the Carolina hurricanes are standing in my way of getting all that all that done. Let me ask you this question quickly about Rory McElroy who has been vocal, not just about what he's been talking about the last three months, but for longer since really since February, but he's not in all feeling it over at Wentworth with the all the players who play on live still being part of that event, he says, friendships are strained and then he went and went all jokey joke on the you know these guys are all good at sea off the first told her to play 72. Hope they're strong enough to deal with that. I look.

I think it's very it's very funny and all that. Just what your thoughts Rory is carried this around all year I went through a lot of door members and EP will remember 20 that he doesn't feel good about the layers being very lucky astronomical amount of money to go play in the lives golf league and I think almost all of the people that are listening program don't have a problem with these guys going to play in that we talked about everybody would've taken that money to but then when you come back and you're trying to take the money of the European were in the PGA tour players on top of all the money you've already made. I think that that's what doesn't sit well with Rory McElroy and a lot of other players that are competing in this event. This week in London I get the reason they're doing it is because they can't get world ranking point in and the only way for them to buy playing but I think that it is quite you made your bed while unit don't try to come back and play in our new and I think that going to be beyond awkward really going to be interesting to let's say hypothetically I'll just a pro rata name your let let's say that Sergio Garcia BMW you going to get himself in position to make next year and if Sergio is a couple of well in European tour event point European Ryder Cup team is going to have to decide, are we going to let this live off of Sergio Garcia into the Ryder Cup as he earned his way or are we going to from the standing because he's now lived golf that is going to be fascinating to watch that unfold.

If that situation presents itself in the next 12 month. The courts that are getting in the way. Right now the European tour. Keeping these guys out, the courts will probably have the ultimate rule there, but will will see before let you go and I wish you well and I'm jealous that you get to do first denouncing I've done that before I did it at the the old Jimmy V golf classic night for some reason I was on the 11th, T why we had an announcer on the 11th TI do not know. Let me ask you real quick because you and your buddy Steve Smith had a pretty good vantage point of watching Baker Mayfield at least what two of the games and one of them was a total cameo. What were your impressions of Baker as the guy who has established himself as the quarterback, Adam. I thought he had a terrific camp. I really thought that in all the scrimmages drilled that they did the scrimmages that they had with the patriots up in New England. I thought he looked great. He made it up point to be very. And quiet since being traded from the pampered arc from the Browns to the Panthers of the shame that you know that that order that what they have to write again. Somebody I don't think that that was all will say something about the Cleveland Browns you wanted to be very quiet and he wanted a fresh start and he wanted to do everything he could to ingratiate himself with teammates and I have to say I haven't ever been a big believer in him as a professional quarterback and certainly by the last five or six weeks I walked away impressed by the leader.

He was of the Carolina Panthers and how we took an hour ingratiate himself with teammates and playbook.

I would, I would say that I think the Panthers have a chance to be a borderline playoff team healthy Christian Replace something that should be a lot of fun. I think that Baker's presence is that of a bona fide NFL quarterback. There is no question about that. Mr. Soares. Good luck with the Bulldogs. I'm sorry wouldn't talk about the Bulldogs exam for good luck good luck with that. That one in the memorizing before deep Adam Brock Vandergriff is 1/3 string quarterback for Georgia member that on Saturday I will thank you very much my friend talk to you soon.

You got a team is already an SEC network and the first thing announcer the president got minuscule. This is very cool when we return were headed to Miami Gardens, Florida in our NFL tour and then JJ Janssen long snapper Carolina Panthers next June 19, 2006, but it all started May 6, 1997 the announcement that the Hartford whalers were coming to North Carolina transition of heartbreak. Figuring it out on the fly became 25th anniversary of the presented by the Carolina listen first laundry room. Then Francis DFO American are on serves three all pretty good for certain interesting. They're both wearing the same color scheme.

Okay I am that this is normal. If you're not dollar Fedor or Joe cribbage.

Ultimately, if you're a Nike person then you're all wearing the same type stuff same color scheme may be slight variation styles, but it becomes repetitive why Dennis Cox is an NFL city store. Let's take I'm going down to Miami Gardens. That's right, not Miami but were going to Miami Gardens and the reason for that is because that's where hard rock stadium is not actually in Miami to Miami Gardens, just north of the city. Okay so it sounds lovely Miami guard. I just imagine like lunch green like willow trees and foliage and cottony there a couple parks as rolling Oaks partners Miami Carol city Park. So if you do want to get into our young urban green space.

In some places to go to 1 Stephanie Pl. to go to get caught or casino dog track at the casino know there's not a dog track in Miami Gardens or jai alai is a highlighter there might be no slot machines. They got a table games looks like so yeah but there's a casino you have to go to Florida. They also have shuffleboard very nice also need Miami international auto drilled get some racing and stuff there okay so that's another thing is the place to go. John racing.

I'm sure they have that to get bullies or cars will actually have at the casino live gaming and throw bratwurst racing Miami Gardens. Yeah, go get some thoroughbred horse racing are highly is not highly is in highly exactly this is north of that. This is north of Hialeah and North Miami and Miami north of all okay yes, very, very, very small area just outside of Hollywood Florida as well. Okay. Also place you go to the top golf excellent top golf Miami Gardens on Sunday and would appreciate that yes top golf you check that out as well. Some places get food.

This place on Hammond's bakery currently is great jerk chicken wings get a cube in this place of the Cuban sugar cube and better Cubans in Tampa. The right then that is not known for the campus got apparently the best Cuban food. Miami has a great Cuban population. Take your word. I have no idea and I think I'm thinking somebody else work for. Also, if you want some like fish fry things along those lines grow wings rolled wings of ribs. Those kinds of stuff for the Sundays he Sundays eatery and the scenery Miami Gardens Yana St. much down there in Miami Gardens, which is really depressing some restaurants and stuff I've seen this hard rock stadium, but that's that's about it.

Okay that's really that's honestly that's really not out of five the Baker bakery down there.

They got a lot of filter about the Baker time simply what is the difference between Bob the builder and Bob Baker because he can make it okay yes you can yeah market alive. There is not much to do well yesterday because is not Miami is Miami Gardens is like Foxboro.

It's like Landover like there's nothing there. Miami Gardens yeah it's it's a place.

Oh, there's a waffle house.

Of course, there is a waffle officer south of the Mason-Dixon line as a wine glass everywhere waffle house everywhere.

Yeah that's it might also be a Shoney's Shawnee still exist yeah I think so not, may I look it's been 30 years since I've been inside attorneys are not sure exits longer than 30 years since I've been inside of civil considerations is almost 35 years since I've been inside is not getting how many Shoney's her left ear hundred as of August 1920 2000 Shoney's location US I would've had a will. How would we have missed that news 33 in Tennessee. That said, I have that all have his jokes about that. I went to as were waiting on JJ Janssen long snapper Carolina Panthers. I went to Tennessee, Alabama football game. This is a long time ago. This is cool. Gosh almost 20 years ago. This is before the Nick Sabin era Tennessee was actually the better program. At this point, my think was it Mike Shula was the head coach at Alabama. At that point so friend of mine and I friend of mine to Alabama granted me to the game. My my read on Knoxville, Tennessee was for two things.

First of all, kneeling stadium should be condemned from the outside.

You would think. There's no way they put 100,000 people in this ballpark, but they do everybody's very close together and that Tennessee has the shiniest fans in college football. I don't want that. What that means. I don't know what the reason is for that but there is a glow about Tennessee for so so that you so I advise I have on Tennessee is cool to see the program finally getting back to being good and I know pit and Tennessee should be an absolute blast coming up this year. JJ Janssen has been a long snapper for the Carolina Panthers for third years, and I know it's funny JJ. I appreciate your time for the it's got to be four or five years since it's not really a joke like that.

We would like to talk to this guy and I finally reached out and said let's talk to JJ Janssen and I appreciate you coming on the program in season is here just how you feel. I know they drafted somebody your position last year. I know what you think of that and how are things going real well you know your 15 for me. So when you start to get a little older in years , no can do it so I'm really grateful what you'll still tell here's the plan been a really fun team to be a part of the lot of fun, growing with new group. I this is sort of the offices is rule 30 year but this, this reminds me a lot of time to build up to 2013 young group of players young Reichel, young veterans, four, five, six years with the current coming around your ship, why production production wise and and now I wish you really try to make a name for themselves and so it is a fun time to become a growing up with these guys and it's been it's been a fine training camp were ready to play somebody else for real getting started on Sunday. JJ Janssen is with us here long snapper Carolina Panthers.

Steve spanned a bunch of different quarterbacks including cam Newton I want to ask about Baker my my read on Baker from Way afar has been at the very least he carries himself, and he has a number one top-flight quarterback presence those that come through, and I'm not trying to throw any shade on the ability because I think it's good or any of the behind-the-scenes stuff but outwardly he looks any acts like a guy who has been at the top of the game for a long time.

What you read on Baker is a player and as a leader will you been a fantastic empathic leader obviously quarterback lends itself to some natural leadership qualities and I do think that you have to be a really good leader really good teammate Success of condition, possibly Alan always matter but you're the one making the play called the audibles the checks people are just looking at you because that's the nature of the position the same way he might look at the point guard or shortstop or catcher in baseball that just kind of a natural leadership condition.

You know when Baker got here you hear a lot of stories every teammate that ever played with them that I know you love them every equipment manager every trainer. Everybody loved your Lori and nobody from inside any of the buildings that play with them. Have any of the same sort of story, so he's been a fantastic teammate. He's been a blast to play with.

He carries himself with atomic confident.

He really give that confident the waiter was teammate.

I think that is one of the hallmarks of a great leader is empowering and encouraging the guys around them to play up to those level, not with not with attitude or you going to do this or that really kind of building guys up. I think that's one of Baker's best qualities as a teammate is one of the guys even encourage her nose and went looking out of himself. That is a lot of responsibility. He brings back to the team. I think it's really positive attribute that we as a team are able to get a lot of positive effects off of self that's been a fun thing to watch and enjoy and be a part of ask you one question about a former teammate that also had great leadership qualities and great presence about him and I just ask it in this context. What was it like when cam Newton walked back into the building last year. You know we were young we were sort of running a little bit of a tough spot. Their damages gotten hurt, we needed another quarterback. So we went and we went out to Arizona. I personally have a lot of memories that was his first game back 2011 so there is a lot of kind of full circle stuff and it was really fun experience to watch cam in that environment. It was a start repeated plates and path of heavy goals for cam, I think you did again like 70, 72% really carry the team welded in the packet quintessential cam Newton play start out fourth-down red zone diving for the pylon like that that the most quintessential place.

That was a lot of fun.

Cam I I've been really blasting. I watch cam coming as a rookie I thought I seen him mature and grow in football and his leadership in his personality on 17 all the all of the style changes over the years.

Cam is still bringing all the same sort of style changes each year. It's fun you guys again. It's really special moment to be able to play with a guy for so long. He leaves and get the family out version 2.0, that was a pretty cool thing for me.he also brings life and energy to any building he walks into a football stadium or cigar cigar club so he brings the ring and was a lot of fun last year playing with head Barletta life yes person the middle that will yell you and your quarterback and your young cow looking for a little bit of a Sparky.

Certainly Dr. Arizona JJ Janssen long snapper Carolina Panthers is joining us here in the Adam go to some driving into this morning I got my son off at school and I was telling him to talk to JJ Janssen today and yes it okay so who is he is a long snapper for the Carolina Panthers and he had some snide remark about what is he do like he's got one of the greatest jobs in all of sports. There is a lot of longevity in in your sport you been around a long time.

Did you ever think what you decide long snapper is my is my ticket to this yeah you know I I grew up playing a lot of baseball and football. One high school. I pick up my dad and I was joining the JV team that the year before gone. Nine and I don't know why I and my dad knew how to do it not become a click base like prowess of some of the skills are somewhat natural to me and is funny in high school I try to keep quitting to go play baseball but I was the best comic kid in all high school doing and so they can't get bringing me back.

Even though I really want to go play baseball.

Got to go to Notre Dame one school that I really wanted to go to academically and I got to go there and play football walked on, and so I never really thought of this is like a long-term profession I go probably until about your two or three of being in it being felt. I probably could could do this for a little bit of time I was still studying to be an account.

My first year when I was in Green Bay. This is, you know year to sort of bounce around guys, bounce around a little bit in their outside and we know what to make of it. I got here to Carolina, my second year junkie with a kick in the Potter, they mentored me so much, professionally, personally, in any sort of feeling oh my gosh like you're doing for 19 years like I'm following a long snapper Jason Kyle Donovan, 15, 16, 17 years like you can actually do and I don't know that I never really thought of playing this long.

It's always been playing the next year playing one year at a time when you look up all the sudden you guys like Scheck Thompson recall the old man and grandpa and all this other stuff and you sort of you look up II think of all of my teammates as my peers but I also realize like some of the guys are closer in age to my oldest son than they are to me and I remember thinking that about a guy like John Kesey and Josh McCown.

When I first got here sort of a fun full circle thing again.

You my teammates and I have hopefully some wisdom to pass on to them. I think they view me as being the guy that's got all the wisdom and reality under sort of sheeting the same sort of encouragement that older players have for me when I was 22 and sitting in the same seafood thing she felt it was really paid for the man I'm trying to pass along and if I get a couple old man jokes along the lack of I can take it that you miss Julius peppers play would play with Julia my my my rookie year. He was here he was in the locker next to me and he was making about $1 million a year. I think I was making league minimum.

I thought, and no other business can you work side-by-side with somebody making 50 times what you're making. This is the physical experience to be an evocative side. I was here on Julius's last year in Julius 1.0 and obviously again when he came back a bunch years later not just another 1718 JJ, I appreciate your time and I'm glad we got. I'm glad I finally reached out and tried to do it.

I hope you'll come back. I hope you have a great season. I'm glad your phone off the Challenger last year and hope you can do this for another unknown another 15 years, I got that maybe maybe you have you got a JJ Janssen.

The long snapper from the Carolina Panthers. It it might be the best job in football. I granted it doesn't have the decimal points that we all want. It has decimal point.

It just doesn't have all the zeros the left on the wrong place right but there are a lot of guys get to play 1516 years in the big in the NFL or the big leagues ready sport for that matter, so I was I was waiting for. Yes the football he questioning how important is it for the snap of the latest JJ sounds cute talk personalities you talk to other stuff like I did what I also didn't want to insult him by saying all right so after the kicking and planting is done. What you do in practice.

Is there something that all right. We this is all happened get JJ like you must. There must be an emergency, but it like it's either a four string center for history like a bait was a bunch of offense of lineman is he is centered might get tightened baseball player so you know is a brilliant athlete. This is the gold shell June 19, 2000 May 6, 1997 with the announcement that the Hartford coming to North Carolina transition of heartbreak.
