  • no, an asterisk, I think, is important to Thio.

  • Note that there were unusual circumstances.

  • And so here are some unusual results that did not occur.

  • And in fact, athletes has been pointed out by many, including me, have gone through probably Mawr this season than they have, at least in recent memory.

  • No asterisk.

  • Um, I think that's an Aston on point of view.

  • Personally, of course, there's an asterisk that gets attached to the season.

  • That doesn't mean that you denigrate the teams that ended up winning the championship.

  • You don't frown at the Dodgers.

  • You don't frown at Alabama.

  • You don't frown at the Lakers.

  • We get that.

  • But the asterisk is not about frowning on an eventual champion.

  • It's about highlighting and illuminating the difference in this season compared to any other we've had.

  • Game cancelation.

  • Major league baseball went from 162 games to 60 games.

  • Okay, you can't tell me that you don't There shouldn't be an asterisk attached to that.

  • That doesn't mean that you look at the Dodgers and frowned upon them and think that they're not worthy champions.

  • You're just highlighting.

  • This season was vastly different from what seasons customarily exist.

  • You look at this national championship, of course.

  • Alabama was there.

  • Alabama.

  • You know me, Alabama.

  • All day, every day.

  • I got all of that.

  • But there does need to be something said about Alabama, who goes 13 and O and Ohio State, who plays six or seven games.

  • There is a difference.

  • Big 10 delayed their play because initially they were aiming to cancel their season before they changed their mind and and got things together.

  • The SEC didn't do that, but games were stalled.

  • Games were postponed, games were canceled.

  • Guys tested positive.

  • Coaches tested positive.

  • We saw a playoff game.

  • It didn't turn out that way for the Pittsburgh Steelers like they thought.

  • But hell, Kevin Snovinsky didn't even coach the game because you know what?

  • Because of covert issues with the Cleveland Browns, it doesn't mean that you frowned upon them.

  • You insult them, you denigrate them in any way.

  • You delegitimize them.

  • But and asked, Eric doesn't have to mean that, and after it could simply be a tool toe.

  • Highlight the fact that there was some very unique circumstances that existed this season, unlike any other in American history or at least over the last century.

  • This highlights that there's nothing wrong with that.

  • I think in this situation it would have to highlight the fact that this was a tougher accomplishment than what had been accomplished in the past.

  • This was the toughest season that they've gone through than what was gone through in the past.

  • This is Alabama team that one more SEC games than any other Alabama team before them.

  • This is an Alabama team that beat number seven number four and number three to end their season.

  • This is the Alabama team that won seven out of the 15 college football awards on this team they lead.

  • They had the number one rushing TD maker in college football.

  • They had the number one receiver also won the Heisman.

  • They got the best quarterback in Matt Jones.

  • They got the best center in.

  • Dickerson, who was hurt, didn't play in the game.

  • They had the best offensive line.

  • And so this season for Alabama and honestly, every team across the country that actually ended up playing football through these circumstances needs toe.

  • Have this season highlighted.

  • Not only did Alabama compass all those things and win a national championship.

  • But I look across the country.

  • The fact that the Big 10 wasn't gonna play the Pac 12 wasn't gonna play.

  • The Mac wasn't gonna play.

  • They found a way and push through and find a way.

  • They play football games.

  • They deserve a pat on the back.

  • And they should honestly highlight this season to say the amount of work, the amount of focus, the amount of effort, the amount of people it took to get a season in is so impressive that this season needs to be highlighted.

  • Yeah, it needs to be highlighted again.

  • I don't disagree with any of your points, Joey, But again and after it doesn't necessary doesn't necessarily commentator Negative, does it?

  • Not at all.

  • Now I'm agreeing with you and saying it should be an asterisk that says thank you.

  • And plus, this is a plus on this, not a one that says this wasn't legit.

  • Right then.

  • First of all, Stephen a just to clear this up asinine doesn't mean brilliant.

  • It means foolish.

  • So I think you misused the word.

  • Let me explain.

  • Misuse the workers.

  • I would never associate brilliance with you having a hard I would never associate brilliance with you, so I didn't use the word.

  • I don't use the word negatively.

  • One inappropriately.

  • And there were 100.

  • Some teams played like 101 102 games.

  • Other teams played 100 1011 games in Major League baseball.

  • There was a weird playoff format.

  • First half winners played second half winners in order to advance to the playoffs.

  • So there was a third tier of playoffs, which didn't used to exist in 1981 of major league baseball.

  • There's no asterisk.

  • You don't need one.

  • You can see there's something different.

  • E.

  • I mean, as I said 9 11, Those were extraordinary circumstances.

  • People forget now.

  • Where maybe aren't is in touch with that feeling.

  • There was a sense of danger in public gatherings, etcetera and major league.

  • So what do you think that half of the world in November 1st time it had happened?

  • We don't need an asterisk.

  • But when it went for clarification purposes, when do you think it's needed?

  • Is what I'm asking?

  • When do you think it's needed?

  • Seriously?

  • When do you think is needed, Matt?

  • An asterisk would be something like eso.

  • Here's a misuse of one.

  • Roger Maris got an asterisk because he broke Babe Ruths single season home run record, but he did it in 100 62 instead of 100 54 games.

  • So they want to say, and I even then I'm not crazy about it.

  • But I understand the idea.

  • They want to say yes, this is the single season record for home runs.

  • But look, he had eight more games to do it in than Babe Ruth did.

  • So we put a little asterisk.

  • Even then, I don't love it.

  • But in this case, we know what happened.

  • This is not something that requires, but, like people will not forget this season.

  • And there's no end having really.

  • The issue is it's, I ask you a direct question.

  • When do you think and after it is appropriate?

  • I didn't ask for a history lesson.

  • I wanna know.

  • When do you think a cheating scandal?

  • What about something involving steroids or some type of scandal?

  • Would that would that involve an asterisk, in your opinion, just trying to help you out here.

  • Maybe you have to give me if a team was found to have cheated and, um after the fact that clearly decided the game.

  • And you don't You can't really scraped them off their title, right?

  • You want to use an asterisk?

  • Even then I don't love it, but okay, this does not require and asked what, Max, I'm good with it.

  • You provided that answer to the question.

  • That's all you finally gave me.

  • And it took you about two weeks.

  • But you finally gave me an answer.

  • Thank you very much.

  • I got an answer.

  • That's always makes it.

  • Gave me an answer.

  • You could you could you give me even a gave me That doesn't require a you gave you gave me that.

  • You gave me an answer.

  • Thank you very much.

  • Thanks for watching ESPN on YouTube for live streaming sports and premium content.

no, an asterisk, I think, is important to Thio.
