The Tunnel Vision crew of Keely Eure, Shotgun Spratling and Ryan Abraham are back in studio trying to make sense of yet another blowout loss at home, this time at the hands of the Oregon State Beavers. For the first time since 1960 OSU earned a victory in the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum and now interim head coach Donte Williams has to figure out how to turn the tide and get this team back on a winning track. The team also talks about what the players and coaches had to say after the loss including offensive coordinator Graham Harrell and defensive coordinator Todd Orlando, how the culture change and increased accountability isn't a magic pill that takes hold over night and the incredible number of penalty flags that flew Saturday night.

We had the pleasure of interviewing Wrabel over Zoom video! The much-anticipated debut full-length album from Wrabel, ‘these words are all for you', will drop on Sept. 24 via Big Gay Records/Nettwerk, ushering into the world the next chapter from one of modern music's most celebrated, versatile, powerhouse songwriters and rising artists. Also today Wrabel has announced a short, intimate run of live dates, the nothing but the piano tour, which includes a stop at NYC's Le Poisson Rouge and an album release show at LA's The Regent Theater this late summer/early fall. Wrabel will also perform this Sunday (6.06) at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum as part of the OutLoud: Raising Voices festival.The new album is a refined, masterfully written and cathartically performed collection that is 11 years in the making. Whether it's on tracks like the Billboard-applauded “good”, the beautifully orchestrated “wish you well” (about the “tug of war” of letting go of past loves), the achingly reminiscent and sonically vast “london”, the hauntingly sparse “don't pick up the phone” or the new single “nothing but the love” (whose video drops today), ‘these words are all for you' showcases what has made Wrabel a go-to for heart-shattering slice-of-life songwriting about finding love, losing it, and discovering oneself throughout the journey.“I can't believe this is my debut album. It's been years in the making. The oldest song is around eight years old, and the newest, just a few months,” said Wrabel about the lifespan of the album's creation. “I poured everything into this record and I am just so proud of it. I feel so lucky to have been able to make it with people so close to me and as an independent artist on my own label partnered with Nettwerk. I always thought my first record would be a break-up record, since the first time I started making it it very much was. This album is filled with love. Hope. True stories and true feelings. I hope me sharing in this way helps even one person feel understood, feel better, feel like they're not alone, and it offers hope that love will come and bring the healing powers it holds.”The new video for “nothing but the love” (directed by Michael Thomas and featuring dancer Layne Willis) is gorgeously choreographed and feels like a spiritual reawakening. Watch HERE.Of the video, Wrabel said “Michael Thomas was such a pleasure to work with on this video. And Layne Willis, my goodness. I feel so lucky to have gotten to witness your incredible talent up close. This song is so close to my heart. The only song I wrote by myself on the record. With Michael's direction and Layne's emotive movement, we wanted to show that someone or something is showing me how to express myself, showing me the flow of expression. To mirror the love I am so grateful to have found.”Wrabel's resume speaks for itself. He has toured alongside and collaborated with P!nk, has co-writing/performance credits alongside the likes of Kesha, Marshmello, Celeste, Backstreet Boys, Ellie Goulding, Louis Tomlinson, Louis the Child, Wafia, Cash Cash, and more. He's released four previous EPs, has racked up 265 million streams across all DSP platforms, and his song “The Village” has become an LGBTQ+ anthem. Over the past few years, his  “knife-to-the-heart” (Idolator) songwriting has led to him becoming “one of Hollywood's finest songwriters for a decade” (American Songwriter), earned him a performance spot on the national NBC TODAY stage and had Billboard saying that Wrabel is “ready for his breakthrough”.We want to hear from you!

(STINGER: WWE) Expect some fallout from last night's Hell In A Cell pay per view on tonight's Raw. Bobby Lashley is STILL the WWE Champion. He beat Drew McIntyre inside Hell In A Cell last night. MVP found his way inside the cell after the referee was knocked out. McIntyre battered MVP inside the cell. But later, it was MVP who made a timely grab of McIntyre's ankle and Lashley rolled up McIntyre for the pin. Also last night, Charlotte Flair beat Rhea Ripley...via disqualification. So, Ripley is still the Raw Women's Champion. Bianca Belair pinned Bayley with a KOD onto a ladder...INSIDE Hell In A Cell...to retain the SmackDown Women's Championship. The match between Alexa Bliss and Shayna Baszler included Alexa apparently hypnotizing Shayna and Nia Jax, who was at ringside. The apparent mind control over Nia caused her to strike down Reginald. Anyway, Bliss ended up pinning Shayna with the Twisted Bliss. Sami Zayn pinned Kevin Owens with the Helluva Kick. Thanks to Sean Ross Sapp for pointing this out - that was Zayn's first pinfall win in a one-on-one match since last October. Seth Rollins reversed Cesaro's giant swing into a rollup for the pin and the win. Natalya submitted Mandy Rose with the Sharpshooter on the Kickoff Show. (STINGER: AEW) Tonight's AEW Dark: Elevation has Jungle Boy vs. Cezar Bononi...Matt Sydal vs. Jack Evans. Plus, FTR is in tag team action. As well as the team of Eddie Kingston & Penta El Zero Miedo. COVID-19 related issues are wrecking plans for a promotion in Japan once again. The dominant, top title holder in All Japan - SUWAMA - vacated the Triple Crown Heavyweight Championship over the weekend...after he tested positive for COVID. SUWAMA was set to defend the gold against the Champion Carnival winner Jake Lee in less than a week. Both Kento Miyahara and Yuma Aoyagi stated Sunday they want to challenge for the title. But There's no official word from All Japan on what it plans to do about this. (STINGER: New Japan) New Japan has announced its first show in front of live fans in the U.S. since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. Resurgence will go down on Saturday, August 14th at The Torch - a 5,000 seat outdoor venue at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. Among the names scheduled to appear - Jay White, Jon Moxley, the Good Brothers, FILTHY Tom Lawlor and Shota Umino. The show is to be broadcasted live with Japanese commentary on New Japan World...and on FITE TV with English commentary. Back in Japan, the Kizuna Road tour resumes on Tuesday...with the NEVER 6-Man Tag Titles on the line in the main event. Hirooki Goto, Tomohiro Ishii & YOSHI-HASHI defend against EVIL, Yujiro Takahashi & Dick Togo. Looking further down the road...nine wrestling companies - including New Japan, NOAH, Dragon Gate and All Japan - will come together in September for a two-day event to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the first pro wrestling show ever held in Japan. MLW officially confirmed some additional names for its Battle Riot III match coming up on July 10th: TJP...Gringo Loco...Kevin Ku...and newcomer Arez.

  This year the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim are playing their 55th season down the road from Disneyland. Adam explores the relationship between America’s pastime and America’s favorite theme park. SUPPORT THE SHOW ON PATREON - OUR SOURCES Three Heavy Hitters Roles in the Disney-Angels Tale, LA Times, May 1995 Angels-Disneyland Doubleheader on YesterlandA History of the Angels on Halos Heaven - ADAM'S SCRIPT Sunday, October 27, 2002. 8 days before my 17th birthday. Edison International Field of Anaheim, one freeway exit south of Disneyland. I was watching this baseball game in Redlands, California, about a 45 minute drive away. The Anaheim Angels, my favorite baseball team, played the San Francisco Giants in the 7th and final game of the World Series. Taking a 4-1 lead into the 9th inning, closer Troy Percival had runners on 1st and 2nd with two outs. Just one pitch away from turning the Angels into World Champions for the first time in their 41 year history. Center fielder Kenny Lofton stepped to the plate representing the tying run. Lofton’s favorite pitch was low and inside. If Percival made a mistake low and in...this could suddenly be a tie game. Luckily for my adolescent psyche...that didn’t happen. If you’re a professional sports fan, and you were lucky enough to see your team win the championship during your formative years, you know the emotions I was experiencing that night. I honestly couldn’t remember a time in my life when I’d felt happier. Jump ahead a couple months. A few of my cousins were visiting from Ohio to spend New Year’s with me, my brother, and my parents. Like anyone visiting California, naturally, my cousins wanted to go to Disneyland, and we were happy to oblige.  But before that happened, I needed to make a very important stop. A week earlier, on Christmas morning, one of my presents was actually a raincheck. A promise from my parents that when we were in Anaheim, we’d pay a visit to the Angels team store and they’d buy me a bright red, Angels World Champion windbreaker, the very same jacket worn by the players and coaches. That jacket brought back all those same emotions from that night in October. And it bears mentioning, even though it was December, we’re talking about Southern California. It was in the high 60s that day! Definitely not heavy jacket weather. But you better believe that jacket never left my torso that day. I still have that jacket. It doesn’t get a whole lot of use these days. It still fits, but it’s a bit more snug around the midsection than when I was in high school. A year ago, on this channel, we released an episode called “The Heart and Soul of Brooklyn”. In that episode, I told a story about a group of young boys living in Brooklyn in the summer of 1955, visiting first Coney Island and then Ebbets Field. In the process of creating and hosting that story, I realized that the world of baseball and the world of theme parks often run side-by-side and have a lot of similar elements. They’re both fun, they’re both great family outings, and maybe I’m getting overly sentimental here, but they both have an element of adventure and...magic. It’s now been almost two decades since the Fall of 2002, and the Angels are beginning their 60th season.They haven’t returned to the World Series...they really haven’t even gotten close. Don’t get me started on that topic.  It’s baseball season, and with Disneyland set to open in a few weeks, it’s also theme park season. Unlike last season, Disneyland and Angel Stadium will actually have visitors this year. Beyond geographic location, the two organizations, Disney and the Angels, share a lot of common ground. It’s April 1961. John F Kennedy, the first US President born in the 20th century, has been in the White House for about 100 days. Yuri Gagaran wins major bragging rights for the Soviet Union by becoming the first man in space. Fugitive Nazi war criminal Adolf Eichman is brought to trial in Jerusalem. And in Los Angeles, a new baseball team takes the field for their first ever home game. 1961 was a transformative year for the American pastime. Baseball is notoriously slow to change, and true to form, the same sixteen teams had existed for six decades. Some of them had relocated, most notably the Dodgers moving from Brooklyn to Los Angeles, and the Giants moving from New York City to San Francisco. But they were still the same ball clubs. Frustrated by the static nature of professional baseball, which if you’re unfamiliar is composed of the National and American Leagues, plans were drawn up for third league, the Continental League. They had their sights set on professional ball teams in Minneapolis, Toronto, Houston, Dallas, and Atlanta, a few of the many regions that baseball-loving Americans were moving to. Before the Continental League could take shape, Major League Baseball struck a deal. They would do something just short of sacrilegious. They would expand. The next two years would see the creation of the New York Mets, Houston Astros, Washington Senators...and the Los Angeles Angels. The Angels would play their first season just south of Downtown LA, at Wrigley Field. If you’re a baseball fan like me, the name of that park probably rings a bell. It shares a name with the Cubs longtime home park, on the north side of Chicago. And no, that’s not a coincidence. William Wrigley, the millionaire owner of the chewing gum company and the Chicago Cubs, built the park in the 1920s for two minor league teams. But in 1961, big league baseball moved in. The previous winter, several baseball executives descended on the baseball owners meetings in St Louis with the hope of putting in a successful bid for the new Los Angeles Angels. Gene Autry, better known as the Singing Cowboy, an established country crooner, radio personality, and movie star would purchase and own the Angels for the next 36 years. The Angels home opener that year was a disappointment, drawing just 12,000 fans, about 50% of the park’s capacity. That year, they averaged just 7,000 fans per game, one-third the total of the Dodgers, playing down the road at Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. Despite not drawing many fans, the Angels won 70 games that season. Not too shabby for a hodgepodge mix of out-of-shape veterans and career minor leaguers. But, for their whole tenure in Los Angeles, the Angels struggled to attract as much attention as their National League counterpart, they also struggled to fill the stands. This was especially disappointing from 1962 to 1965 when the Angels and Dodgers shared Dodger Stadium. It was time for the Angels to move out of Los Angeles and find their own identity. That’s where Anaheim came into the picture. In just seven short years, Anaheim went from a dusty citrus-growing town to the home of the most popular theme park on earth; Disneyland. In 1965, Anaheim got another major tourist attraction: The only American League baseball team in the state of California. While announcing the construction of the new Anaheim Stadium just four miles south of Disneyland, the team also announced a new name: The California Angels. If the team’s move to Disneyland’s backyard seems too perfect to be a coincidence, well...that hunch is correct. Walt Disney was a member of the Angels board of directors from 1960 until his death in 1966, and he was a central figure in the team’s move to Orange County. As fellow family-friendly Hollywood entertainers, Walt Disney and Gene Autry both saw the benefit of giving Americans another option for a family friendly outing. You could visit Anaheim and see Mickey Mantle and Mickey Mouse on the same weekend! 1966,the team’s first year in Anaheim, saw 1.4 million fans visit the ballpark, the highest attendance in the American League. In 67, to promote the opening of Haunted Mansion and Pirates of the Carribean, Autry teamed up with the Disney company to offer Angels-Disneyland doubleheader. For $5, fans could buy a reserved seat at a game against the Cleveland Indians, and a special nighttime ticket to Disneyland, giving them access to the park from 8 at night to 1 in the morning. Just as Disney began to experience some of their worst years, the Angels entered some of their best. They acquired Nolan Ryan, one of the best pitchers in the history of the game, and would go on to win their division in 1979, 1982, and 1986. Disneyland and the Angels remained friendly neighbors, but for the most part, separate and unrelated entities throughout the 70s and 80s. But that began to change in the early 1990s. In the middle of the 1994 season, just as the Disney Decade was gaining steam, the studio released Angels in the Outfield, starring a very young Joseph Gordon-Levitt, as well as Christopher Lloyd, Best known previously as Doc Brown from the Back to the Future franchise. Lloyd plays Al, who leads a team of Angels on a mission of divine intervention to help the team win the pennant. It’s cheesy. It’s sappy. It’s all the things Disney gets accused of on a daily basis, but it still gives me the warm fuzzies.  Disney’s new CEO Michael Eisner had an interest in sports that went beyond the silver screen. After purchasing and debuting the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim the previous year, Eisner now had his sights set on the Angels. By this point, Gene Autry was in his 80s and in failing health, having handed over day-to-day operations to his wife Jackie. She agreed to sell 25% of the team to Disney in 1994. After Gene Autry passed away four years later, Disney bought the team outright for just over $100 million. During the years of Disney ownership, the team changed their name for the second time, from the California Angels to the Anaheim Angels. With some financial assistance from the city of Anaheim, the team also gave the stadium a much-overdue makeover. Early in their ownership, Disney made a big blunder. The company re-designed the team’s uniforms. Beginning in the 1997 season, the Angels played in blue and white pinstripes, with a logo that looked like it was straight out of Toontown. Many fans compared it to something an adult softball team would wear. In 2002, the team did away with their five-year mistake and took the field in classic red and white uniforms. The uniforms didn’t help pre-season predictions for the team, as most oddsmakers expected them to place third in their four team division. When the Angels finished the first 20 games of the season with a 6 and 14 record, even those projections seemed optimistic. But they turned it around. Not unlike the original 1961 Angels, the 02 (oh two) team was scrappy. A collection of veterans and newcomers, without a lot of household names. They’d go on to surprise nearly everyone by ending the season with 99 wins. In early November, they celebrated their world championship with...what else? A parade down Main Street USA. Though Disney sold the team in 2003, the relationship between the two hasn’t ended. Most notably, when Angel Stadium hosted the MLB All-Star Game in 2010, Disney created 36 baseball-themed Mickey Mouse statues and placed them throughout the Disneyland Resort. I’ve always loved the fact that my favorite baseball team plays down the road from my favorite theme park. When two things you love, and that you’re passionate about, intersect like that, it gives you all the warm fuzzies. I love food, too, and I get that same overwhelmingly happy feeling when I sit down and have a really good meal at Carthay Circle at Disney California Adventure, or Blue Bayou at Disneyland Wherever you’re surrounded by people who love all the same things you do, those are the really good moments in life. Maybe we used to take those places and experiences for granted a little bit. But I have a feeling, after 2020, we’re never going to do that again. Whether it’s a baseball game, a football game, a trip to a theme park, a family BBQ...whatever part of your life that features your favorite things and your favorite people, I hope you get to a whole lot more of it this year. To the Angels, happy 60th season. Play Ball!

After snapping a four-game losing streak last week, the Bears headed for the west coast hoping to get on a roll and keep their postseason dreams alive. Unfortunately, those slim playoff hopes look almost non-existent after a 17-7 loss to the Los Angeles Rams. Adam Hoge and Adam Jahns breakdown what went wrong for the Bears from the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum press box. They not only discuss the injury to Mitchell Trubisky’s hip, but when the team knew about it as well. Hoge and Jahns play the postgame comments from head coach Matt Nagy, and Trubsiky. Towards the end of the show, the guys talk about whether the team should shutdown Trubisky before the end of the season.

Who is Jack Berry? He's a long time dear friend of mine. He was a Sports Writer with the Detroit New for many years. He was awarded the 2007 PGA Lifetime Achievement Award in Journalism. He watched me grow up as a pretty good Junior Golfer in Michigan in the 60'-70's. Wrot some nice things about me and I love that he ran in our Emily Detroit Run's in the 70'-80'. I took this story about Jack off the Golf Wire from 2007. What a career he has had and he is still very active with his writing and video story telling in many ways including with my good friend Art McCafferty's GLSP Michigan Golfer. Jack Berry, the 2007 PGA Lifetime Achievement Award in Journalism,was the 18th individual to be recognized with this Award. The award honors members of the media for their steadfast promotion of golf.In 1945, the year the Detroit Tigers beat the Chicago Cubs in the World Series Jack Berry's father was the Detroit Tigers Traveling Secretary. PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. – Jack Berry, of W. Bloomfield, Mich., whose five decades of reporting featured more than 70 of golf’s major Championships, as well as the promotion of the PGA Professional, has been named recipient of the 2007 PGA Lifetime Achievement Award in Journalism. Berry is the 18th individual to be recognized with this Award. Berry, 75, will be honored April 4, 2007, at the 35th Golf Writers Association of America Annual Spring Dinner and Awards Ceremony at the Savannah Rapids Pavilion in Augusta, Ga. "It is with a great deal of pride that The PGA of America presents this award to Jack Berry, a professional who has enlightened us all by both his attention to detail and wit, and has captured the best in the game of golf in his work," said PGA of America President Brian Whitcomb. "Mr. Berry has spent his journalistic career covering the landmark events, but he also has been a tireless servant of the game by promoting local golf and elevating the PGA Professional’s vocation to the general public." Born in Detroit, Berry began a lifelong love affair with sports as a baseball fan, following his father, Clair, who was the traveling secretary for the Detroit Tigers. Jack Berry picked up a golf club, his father’s wooden-shaft driver, for the first time in high school. He learned the game through the late PGA Professional Chet Jawor, who was PGA head professional for Detroit’s six municipal golf courses. "I soon became a big fan of the PGA Professional," said Berry. "I always liked what they did for the game and all were good guys and completely different than the Tour professional. I was fortunate that the two newspapers where I worked (Detroit Free Press and Detroit News) had a good tradition of local golf coverage. I enjoyed the opportunity to work with people in the community in covering golf. I am very honored to receive this Award, considering those who have preceded me." Berry attended Marquette University from 1949-1951, and also served two years in the U.S. Army from 1952-54. Upon his discharge, he finished his college education and graduated from Michigan State University in 1956. His journalism career began as a correspondent for United Press (1956-59), where he distinguished himself through his versatility, covering professional and local sports as the wire service’s sports editor for the state of Michigan. Berry joined the Detroit Free Press in 1959, and spent the next 12 years on the sports staff. He marked his first Tour event when he covered the 1958 Buick Open in Grand Blanc, Mich. His professional sports "beat" featured the Detroit Red Wings of the then-six-team National Hockey League; and he marked his first major Championship in 1961, at the U.S. Open at Oakland Hills Country Club in Bloomfield Township, Mich. Berry joined the Detroit News in 1971, and remained its premier golf writer through 1993, during which time he developed a relationship with Michigan PGA Professionals and the Free Press Junior Golf Program, which collaborated with the Detroit Recreation Department. It is a program "that was a forerunner to today’s First Tee in providing opportunities for young people to join the game," said Berry. In 1984, Berry was named the 27th president of the Golf Writers Association of America, making him the second journalist from the Detroit News (preceded by John Walter in 1958-59) to hold that position. Berry also served as GWAA secretary-treasurer from 1990-98. Following his Detroit News’ career, Berry became one of the most prolific golf freelance writers, with columns and features appearing in PGA Magazine, Chicagoland Golf and the Michigan Golfer. He is the recipient of the 1997 Golf Association of Michigan Distinguished Service Award. In 2003, he became the second journalist inducted into the Michigan Golf Hall of Fame, joining the late Walter. Among the members of the Michigan Hall of Fame are legendary five-time PGA Champion and founding PGA member Walter Hagen, and 1953 PGA Champion Walter Burkemo. Berry marked the 1986 Masters, when Jack Nicklaus conquered Augusta National Golf Club at age 46, as not only his most memorable golf event as a reporter, but also a defining moment in his life. Berry nearly died following the Masters. He was stricken with acute viral myocarditis two weeks earlier at the Players Championship. After enduring great pain and energy loss during the Masters, he arrived home to enter the emergency room of the local hospital. "I arrived with heart, liver and kidney failure, and in shock," said Berry. "I almost made the final six-footer." Some two years later, Berry’s recovery was complete, as he competed in the New York City Marathon. His reporting has also ventured into horse racing, where he chronicled Secretariat’s path to the 1973 Triple Crown; to Super Bowl VII, where the Miami Dolphins became the NFL’s first and only unbeaten championship team at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum in 1973; and to Lake Placid, N.Y., where the 1980 United States Olympic Hockey Team upset the squad from the former Soviet Union in the famous "Miracle on Ice." The PGA Lifetime Achievement Award in Journalism, first presented in 1989, honors members of the media for their steadfast promotion of golf. Past Award winners include: Dick Taylor, Herbert Warren Wind, Jim Murray, Frank Chirkinian, Bob Green, Dan Jenkins, Furman Bisher, Jack Whitaker, Dave Anderson, Ken Venturi, Jim McKay, Kaye Kessler, Nick Seitz, Renton Laidlaw, Bob Verdi, Al Barkow and Ron Green Sr. The Award selection committee is composed of representatives from The PGA of America, PGA Tour, USGA, LPGA Tour, Champions Tour, European Tour, Golf Superintendents Association of America, National Golf Course Owners Association, American Society of Golf Course Architects, National Golf Foundation and past recipients.

In the latest episode of the Sun Devil Source Report Podcast, publisher Chris Karpman and host Rob Werner are joined by staff reporters Jack Harris, Mason Kern, and Max Madden as they analyze Arizona State's 38-35 win over USC at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum last Saturday. ASU's (4-4, 2-3 Pac-12) win in Southern California was not only its first road victory of 2018 but also snapped USC (4-4, 3-3 Pac-12) coach Clay Helton’s career undefeated home record of 19-0. In evaluating the Sun Devils' win over their Pac-12 South foe, we begin the show by discussing some of the most critical plays that led to the outcome: ASU junior receiver N'Keal Harry's 44-yard touchdown catch, sophomore running back Eno Benjamin's 49-yard touchdown run to give his team a 24-7 lead, Harry's third-quarter 92-yard punt return touchdown that put the Sun Devils back in front for good, and more. How effective was ASU's offense after the team got back to the ground-and-pound style coach Herm Edwards has said he's most comfortable with? Benjamin gained 192 yards on the ground over 29 carries to go along with two touchdowns. Sun Devils' senior quarterback Manny Wilkins bounced back against USC after receiving harsh criticism following ASU's loss to Stanford two weeks ago when he failed to lead a successful two-minute drive. Wilkins completed 14-of-22 passes for 166 yards, one passing touchdown, one rushing touchdown, and one fumble lost. While Wilkins statistics don't jump out, the 6-foot-3, 200-pound quarterback also rushed nine times for 89 yards, including ASU's final touchdown of the day, a 45-yard touchdown run with just 1:23 remaining in the game. In the City of Angels, Harry, the Sun Devils' best-regarded NFL prospect, hauled in four passes for 95 yards including a jaw-dropping 28-yard one-handed catch in the fourth quarter and the 92-yard punt return touchdown. Was this game potentially Harry's most complete game in his ASU career? In the first half of ASU's win over USC, the team's defense, led by coordinator Danny Gonzales, surrendered just seven points (USC sophomore wide receiver Tyler Vaughns had an 82-yard punt return touchdown on USC's first touch of the day). However, in the first five minutes of the second half, ASU's defense yielded 14 points, as USC jumped ahead of the Sun Devils. While Gonzales' unit held USC to just seven points in the fourth quarter, including a critical fourth-and-1 stop with 10:16 remaining in the game while USC made its way down to the ASU 20-yard line. How did the defense perform in totality? Early in the game, Gonzales' defense was able to generate pressure on redshirt freshman quarterback Jack Sears who was making his first career start in place of freshman JT Daniels (concussion), but ASU was only able to produce two sacks. The unit did record five tackles for loss for a combined 32 yards. What was the impact of these negative plays? With ASU's win over USC, the Sun Devils are once again in the mix for the Pac-12 South title. What must the Sun Devils' do the rest of the way to put themselves in position to take the division? What does a win against a powerhouse program like USC at the Coliseum do for ASU's program? They review how the Pac-12 did in Week 9 and how the conference has done this season before making a quick note the addition of four-star wide receiver prospect, according to 247 Composite Rankings, Chad Johnson Jr.

FUL DESCRIPTION Summary As we step off our DeLorean in this episode, the date is June 13, 1903. We are in Forksville, Pennsylvania. This is the date and birthplace of our hero, Harold Edward Grange, whom would later become the Galloping Ghost. His mother would pass away when he was 5, so his father moved the family to Wheaton, Illinois. Most people call him Red Grange, and he would proceed to make his mark on the football world at Wheaton High School. After an incredible High School career, Red Grange would be recruited to play football for the University of Illinois. He entered Illinois in 1922, and he played football in the 1923 through 1925 seasons. Red Grange would be given the honor of All-American each of his three seasons. In his first game, Grange scored 3 touchdowns against Nebraska. His claim to stardom came in the 1924 season against an undefeated Michigan team. He would have a spectacular individual performance that would catapult him into iconic status. More details are given throughout the episode. Red Grange would ultimately use his college greatness to be signed by the Chicago Bears for George Halas. His debut game would be 10 days after his last college game, which would be on Thanksgiving Day. The game would draw 36,000 fans, the most for a professional game at the time. This game had wild success, so Halas and Grange’s agent (C.C. Pyle) set up a “barnstorming tour†across the United States. One stop was in New York to take on the Giants at New York’s Polo Grounds in front of 70,000 raving fans. Grange would end up playing 8 games in 12 days in the Midwest and East, and then his tour out West would include 9 more games. The highlight out West would include a defeat of the Los Angeles Tigers in Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum in front of 75,000 rowdy fans. The Galloping Ghost was a legend after this “barnstorming tour,†and his agent C.C. (Cash and Carry) Pyle had plenty of lofty... Support this podcast

[greetings] [Mark -- To start with - how did you get the trove of letters you used for your research?] [How many letters did you go through to start your research?] [OK.. In WWI malady was equated with physical issues, but your article deals with the psychological stresses of the pilot’s experience. Just a year prior they were executing trench soldier with shell shock on charges of cowardice. How did that play out for the pilots?] [Look - the stress for these aces makes a lot of sense… To be an Ace you need to fly a lot of missions. The mortality rate of your buddies is off the charts… and unlike foot soldiers - you don’t have the courage of the guys on your left and right to bolster you.. This is a white knuckle, cold sweat, daily solo experience… sounds like traumatic stress is inevitable..

To tell us about it, we’re joined by Dr. Lindsay Sarah Krasnoff, a historian, sports writer, consultant, and author. Her website says: Historical Insights COMMUNICATING GLOBALLY -- Sports - Diplomacy & Storytelling Lindsay! Sounds like you fit right in here. Welcome to the podcast! [greetings] [Lindsay For our non-basketball experts - Like me - could you start us off with a brief history of basketball? When did it first develop, and how widespread was the sport in America circa 1918?] [Did the Americans bring hoops to France or were they already playing?] [If Doughboys and the YMCA helped reignite French interest in basketball, was it only in France that this occurred?] [You’re working on a new book about basketball in France -- how popular is the sport there now?] [goodbyes] Dr. Lindsay Sarah Krasnoff is a historian, sports writer, consultant, and author of several books. Learn more about her and her writing by following the links in the podcast notes.

Here is a section from the press release: CHICAGO, IL, April 5 – On the eve of the 101st  Anniversary of the United States entering World War 1, the U.S. World War I Centennial Commission and the Pritzker Military Museum and Library announced today the final 50 WW1 Memorials to be awarded grants and honored with the official national designation as "WW1 Centennial Memorials". All 100 memorials, in all 100 cities have now been designated including such national landmarks as: Chicago’s "Soldier Field", LA’s "Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum", San Francisco’s “War Memorial Veterans Building and Opera House”, Honolulu’s "Natatorium" and Washington, D.C.’s “National World War I Memorial at Pershing Park”. In addition, many smaller local community projects are being recognized such as: Scranton Pennsylvania’s “Col. Frank Duffy Memorial Bridge and Park”, Cape May, New Jersey’s "Soldier and Sailors Monument", Ocean Springs, Mississippi’s "Emile Ladnier WWI Memorial," and North Carolina's NC State University “Memorial Belltower”, to name just a few. The newly-designated memorials are in 37 different states and each will receive a $2,000 matching grant, towards the restoration, conservation and maintenance of these local historical treasures. Here is John Schwan the Interim President and CEO of the Pritzker Military Museum and Library from the livestream announcement. [insert clip] THEO: So this has been a nearly two year effort to get the 100 memorials designated… But this is not the end of the program - for example, we are going to continue to profile the project on the podcast, we are going to accelerate our Memorial Hunters program to identify and create a national register of WWI memorials around the nation. We are going to continue to encourage and support communities around the country to commemorate their local WWI heroes through their memorials that are all over America - many hidden in plain sight! As Dan Dayton, Executive Director of the U.S. World War One Centennial Commission noted in the press release: "I am impressed by the community involvement that has sprung from this project. By focusing on restoring these community treasures, local cities, veterans groups, historical society and citizens have come together to remember the community’s heritage - and that was really a key goal of the program." See a searchable listing of all 100 cities and memorials at ww1cc.org/100Memorials or follow the link in the podcast notes.

Which is our Speaking WW1 phrase this week. During WWI, as the soldiers sat in the muddy trenches in anxious anticipation…  preparing to take the offensive… that dramatic moment when the whistles blew - and the men climbed up and over the berms of the trench, rushing out into no-man’s land facing the enemy, shells, gas and machine gun fire, well that was known as… you guessed it - “going over the top”. At the time it was a literal, physical description of what you did - but - appropriately remains in our lexicon today as something seriously radical. “Over the top” - something you might toss off lightly about someone or something - but a phrase with a very heavy history - and this week’s phrase for speaking WW1. Links:https://www.thoughtco.com/going-over-the-top-2361017 [SOUND EFFECT] WW1 War Tech Paris Gun This week for WW1 War Tech -- we turn our attention back to late March and early April of 1918. Paris is under attack as behemoth canon shells -- some weighing as much as 230 pounds fall on the city, killing dozens, creating panic and initially confusing city officials. Where were the guns? The Paris Guns as they came to be known, were sitting 80 miles away, and were responsible. This German supergun was not meant for the battlefield. It was specifically designed to terrorize and demoralize civilian populations. It was so massive that it could only be moved around by rail.. It was created by extending a 380 mm naval gun barrel to a length of 112 feet. that and 550 Lbs of gunpowder gave the beasts their extreme firing range. Ed Lengel mentioned that en route to their target,  the shells literally arced into earth’s stratosphere 24 miles up -- up there, there is almost no atmospheric drag - again increasing the range. The weapon began its assault on Paris late March in 1918, continuing periodically for over three months, until early August. The panic and fear that spread after the initial attacks was short lived and the terror weapon never proved to be much of a threat to French strategy or the population’s morale. Nevertheless, the Paris Guns proved to be a domestic propaganda hit in Germany, as the ability to strike the French capital directly did much to stem the public’s anxiety over the course of the war. The Paris Gun -- It was an engineering marvel -- and it was a terror weapon aimed at Parisians one hundred years ago-- and it is the subject of this week’s WW1 War Tech.

New Jersey Ordinance Hi Theo -- A really interesting article popped up on Facebook this week about ordnance from WW1 that continues to surface and pose a threat -- but not in Europe, right here on the east coast of the United States! Listeners may be familiar with the Zone Rouge -- a 460 square mile area of France centered around Verdun that has been determined to be too physically and environmentally damaged for human habitation as a direct result of the Great War. There is even an entire department in France, the Département du Déminage or department of de-mining, that has been tasked with safely disposing of ordinance from the world wars. Since its establishment in 1946, more than 630 members of that force have been killed in the line of duty. We have no such force here in the US -- so when seven rifle grenades from WW1 were discovered recently on the coast of New Jersey, explosives experts had to be called in to safely dispose of the munitions. So, how did these grenades end up in New Jersey? It turns out, disposing of unneeded munitions by dumping them into the sea was a commonplace practice -- as recently as 1970. As a result, there are an estimated millions of tons of potentially explosive ordinance on the seafloor -- and every once in a while, some makes its way onto shore. Read more about the Zone Rouge and the intermittent discovery of World War weapons on American shores by visiting the links in the podcast notes. That’s it for this week in the Buzz.
