This episode I look into the possibility that the King of Rock n Roll, Elvis Presley faked his own death. Many eyewitness accounts reported seeing Elvis all over the world but could the King really be alive? Pastor Bob Joyce of Arkansas pairs a striking resemblance and even has an identical singing voice as Elvis Presley, could this be the King? Evidence from Elvis's own cousin Gene Smith suggest Elvis wasn't in the casket he carried and a very suspicious aspect of Elvis's death certificate keep this theory alive til today.

After back-to-back weeks of getting a behind-the-scenes look at the development of Ohio State five-star quarterbacks C.J. Stroud and Quinn Ewers, Lettermen Row's Tim May returns with another deep dive this week. On this week's edition of the Tim May Podcast, Tim shifts his focus to women making the climb up the athletic ranks, including Diana Sabau, the Big Ten Conference's deputy commissioner and chiefs sports officer. Prior to her role in the Big Ten conference, Sabau was a staff member in the Ohio State athletic department for 27 years. That included serving as deputy athletic director from 2017-2021 as the sports department's second-highest ranked administrator behind Gene Smith. She then left her role at Ohio State to oversee all 28 of the Big Ten's sponsored sports as the league's first-ever chief sports officer. Sabau joins Tim on the podcast to discuss her extensive role that she began in March 2021. She discusses how she hopes to help the Big Ten grow, her vision for the league's sports over the next several years and how her time at Ohio State helped prepare her. Sabau is one of the most successful administrators in the history of Ohio State athletics. She helped oversee the Buckeyes growth in partnerships with companies such as Nike, Gatorade, CBS and the Big Ten Network. Throughout those many years, Sabau learned several important lessons along the way, and she has become an inspiration to many women who are hoping to break through in the sports administration business and excel in their career. What advice does Sabau have for those hoping to follow a similar career path as her? What goals does she have for the Big Ten Conference in the 2020s? Find out on this edition of the Tim May Podcast.

Things discussed: Dug takes: Michigan wants a long-term guy at point guard—setting up to have a lot of experience. Wish we had some stats on his free throw shooting because a key for him is can he make shots off the dribble. He can definitely get them—quickest guy in his class. Bufkin: could he be the best player in the class? Depends when he blows up and how much we get out of Frankie. Recent football commits: Crowell put his stamp on Aaron Alexander CJ Stokes: Mike Hart has a type—big question is why did South Carolina's new staff not re-offer? There's a reason he's a 3-star and Corum was a top-100 guy but similar games. Seth once “raced” David Underwood—I actually stretched the truth here. I umpired softball in the summers, and David was I think the captain or the organizer of one of the two teams of football guys. When the other team didn't show vs the football guys once, I gave them the field, and they were screwing around hitting flies to the outfield. I jumped in as well, and got there first to a ball in the alley between us, and they gave Underwood shit for having less range than the ump. Owen Power: the #1 pick in the draft returning? Buffalo can get an extra UFA year and they're not going to be competitive this year anyway. If he wants to be in the NHL next year he will be. NHL isn't allowed to put guys in the AHL again so they can use college for that instead now. NIL: Court's decision is a sign the NCAA doesn't want to get before them again. We've reached the tipping point now where the schools that made it their mission to keep payments in the black market are jumping to make the most friendly NIL bill as soon as possible so they don't miss out on recruits. We should never forget Gene Smith was the #1 guy trying to stop this from happening. Will there ever be a reckoning for Ohio State being THE school defending the old racket? Will LSU ever get in trouble? Well not if Mark Emmert's brother in law is in charge there. Bagmen won't go away but they're not going to compete with Nike, and where does Nike want a player to go? Michigan (Oregon). Can we get MJ on the line with Walter Nolen? How can they differentiate between commerce and paying players? They can't; stop trying. $50,000 to wear an MGoBlog hat once for five minutes. MGoBlog will sponsor any fullback at Michigan.
