this is "today" with matt lauer and savannah guthrie, live from studio 1-a in rockefeller plaza. good morning. welcome to "today" on a wednesday morning. i'm matt lauer. >> i'm savannah guthrie along side natalie morales and dylan dreyer while natalie is on assignment. the godparent list is out. it's long. prince george has been good friends. >> seven god parents. i'm surprised i'm not on the list. >> i think you were robbed. >> i submitted my name. >> but there are normal people on the list. not kings and queens. kind of a turn for the couple. >> we'll get our second sighting in a little while. also, ahead a "today" exclusive. new information that nbc has obtained that could shed some light on the little girl found in greece. the so-called blonde angel. the lawyer for the couple she was with now saying they saved her from a much worse fate. we'll tell you more about that.
7:02 am
but weather is today's top story. temperatures are tumbling across the country. ron mott is in new buffalo, michigan. good morning, ron. how cold is it? >> reporter: good morning. it's cold. temperatures stayed above the freezing mark overnight but at worst we'll see a mix of snow and freezing rain, and for the kids, they're probably disappointed because it's not sticking. although on the beach, you can see a little white stuff on the sand. we saw light accumulation in south dakota. yesterday in chicago, it was quite cold. snow flurries reported in the western suburbs. today, it's a day for gloves and umbrellas and the threat is not going to end for possible snow. we expect a chance tomorrow and maybe into friday. >> ron, thank you very much. >> all right, thank you very much. dylan is at the board tracking the snow and other weather. what's going on? >> it's going to be very cold. especially since it's been so nice this fall. but now temperatures will be 15
7:03 am
to 20 degrees below average. it's all about the jet stream and now that we have this dip in the jet stream it's going to drag in some of the cold air. not only are we looking at cold temperatures but lake effect snow will be a good possibility because you have the cold air passing over the much warmer great lakes. we are going to see lake effect snow, especially over the course of the next few days. look at our temperatures. we have a lot of temperatures near freezing right now but high temperatures later on this afternoon will be around 15 degrees below normal. 50 in indianapolis today. milwaukee only 45. that's 13 degrees belonormal. and st. paul minnesota about 40 degrees at 16 degrees below normal. this will stick around for quite some time. savannah. thank you very much. new steps are being taken this morning to address the problems and embarrassments with the government's health care website. and we're hearing from the woman at the center of the storm. health and human services secretary kathleen sebelius. peter alexander has the story from the white house this morning. peter, good morning to you.
7:04 am
>> reporter: savannah, good morning to you. a lot going on again today. later today members of the administration are going to come host health insurance executives here at the white house to discuss the botched roll out of the obama care website. we're learning new details. from subill ysz that the president wasn't even aware of the website's problems until it was too late. vowing to fix the broken health care website, kathleen sebelius told cnn president obama didn't know about the site's problems until after its turbulent launch. when did the president first come out? >> it became clear early on. the first couple days -- >> but not before that? there was no concern at the white house or hhs? >> i think that we talked about having testing going forward. >> reporter: subilious skirted questions about whether she would resign. >> i think my job is to get this fully implemented and to get the
7:05 am
website working right. >> reporter: still republicans haven't let up. >> this roll out has turned into a real fiasco. >> reporter: in new jersey derek hall is one of those struggling to register. >> we tried repeatedly since the day obama care rolled out and we were just very unsuccessful. >> reporter: overnight, the president released a video to rally supporters to his side suggesting other ways to sign up. >> the old fashioned way, either over the phone or in person. >> reporter: and nbc news learned in the coming weeks the administration will dispatch cabinet secretaries and white house officials to these ten locations with the highest rates of uninsured to encourage enrollment. the white house still will not say how many people have su successfully enrolled. the secretary would only say the number is in the thousands but officials here insist the real rush is going to come closer to the sign up deadlines. they realize the clock is ticking. just another reason the white house is taking its message on
7:06 am
the road. peter alexander, thank you. >> even as the white house tries to fix the health care plan they dealt swiftly with another problem this morning. identifying and firing an official behind an insulting twitter account. chuck todd is nbc's political director and chief white house correspondent. chuck, what's going on? >> reporter: it's some story. it's something many disgruntled workers have perhaps fantasized about. using twitter to anonymously vent about everything you hate about your job. but this was no ordinary disgruntled worker. this was the senior foreign policy adviser to the president of the united states. he was one of the president's national security counsel advisors on iran. he was abruptly fired last week for leading a secret life on twitter. for the last two and a half years he has been viciously tweeting about coworkers policies, republicans and journalists. josh rogen was among those that thought the anonymous man was an insider. >> it was a mix of leaking sensitive national security information, criticizing the
7:07 am
policies of the administration he worked for, and insulting the personalities and appearance of very famous national security officials. >> reporter: the anonymous tweets began in february 2011 with president obama's handling of the egyptian political unrest which was being second guessed. tweeting about hilary clinton. my sources tell me hilary was not happy with today's nyt tick on egypt. she's cursing. who the f told me he was a good idea and he didn't shy away from anthony weiner's twitter controversy. tweeting this. was huma abdean wearing beer goggles the night she met anthony weiner? almost as bad, a pairing as samantha -- >> late last night he e-mailed an apology and said in part what started out as an intended parody account of d.c. culture developed over time into a series of inappropriate and mean spirited comment. i bear complete responsibility for the affair and sincerely apologize to anyone who was
7:08 am
insulted. for everybody who ever thought this was a good idea and a way to vent, just know you'll get caught. >> he bears complete responsibility two years after it started. >> yeah. >> thank you very much. >> just the tip of the iceberg too. natalie has more on a security scare. >> that's right, it could have been, and the careers of four air force officers now in serious jeopardy because they're accused of leaving the door open to underground nuclear launch capsules. two separate incidents occurred earlier this year in minot, north dakota, and great falls, montana. according to the associated press, the concrete and steel doors were deliberately left open while one of two crew members inside slept. the reprimands are considered career ending. hundreds of people held a rally in missouri tuesday night in support of a teen girl who said she was sexually assaulted by a 17-year-old boy when she was just 14.
7:09 am
residents took to the streets. for the first time since the story started getting attention on social media. a local prosecutor dropped charges against the teen boy and a second 17-year-old who roorded last year's incident on his cell phone. a special prosecutor is looking into the case. if you're hoping for a quick tax refund this year, it's not happening because of the partial government shutdown. the irs is behind and won't start processing returns until the last week of january and early february. that's one to two weeks later than usual. it is likely to delay refunds for early filers. the dome on the u.s. capitol building is getting a facelift. officials say the iconic dome has more than 1,000 cracks and deficiencies. the restoration process is expected to cost more than $59 million. so get your photos in now. starting in november, the capitol dome will be scaffolded for two years. meantime, a bizarre scene at the state capitol building in utah. security cameras captured a man
7:10 am
driving his pick up truck right up the capitol steps in st. lake city. once he got to the top, he parked right outside the front door, went inside yelling and screaming, and police had to use a taser gun to get him under control. the suspect is facing trespa trespassing and assault charges. one man's exercise routine is getting a lot of attention in a colorado town including a flurry of 911 calls. take a look at this video. you can see what appears to be a man dangling from a hot air balloon. this was in colorado. local dispatchers were flooded with 911 calls. turns out the man hanging from the balloon is dan vincent and he was shooting a promotional video for his workout product. not sure what the product was. vincent was simply doing some pull-ups, not in any danger whatsoever. >> whatsoever. >> except for the power lines. >> exactly. that's what you call extreme working out. >> it's a great workout until he
7:11 am
lands on your head. then it's not so funny. natalie, thanks. dylan has the rest of the forecast. >> yes, we're talking about the cold air in the east but it's also warm out in the west. temperatures about 15 degrees above average out that way but we do have a couple of storm systems that are weak but they're out there and just enough to make things unsettled. and because it's cold this little area of low pressure up across the dakotas will produce light snow and this one into illinois and into indiana will share some energy with this coastal storm and that's going to make it a little unsettled for the world series later on tonight. that's what i'm getting to with all of that. pretty quite weather elsewhere. 90s in the southwest and temperatures in the 70s with fog across california's coast. that's a look at the weather across the country. your local forecast is coming up in 30 seconds. not their short-term agenda.

[ male announcer ] at edward jones, forecast. >> thank you so much. police in nevada are learning more about the 12-year-old that opened fire at a middle school killing a teacher there. nbc's joe fryer is in sparks again this morning following the investigation. joe, good morning to you.
7:13 am
>> reporter: good morning, savannah. investigators say the seventh grader took a handgun from his home but it's still unclear why he opened fire before taking his own life. this morning, the school remains closed but out front there's a growing memorial paying tribute to a heroic victim. in the minutes following monday's shooting there was a desperate search for answers by anyone connected to sparks middle school. >> i drove through a barricade basically just to get some information. to have somebody talk to me. >> reporter: reggie landsberry was looking for his big brother mike. a math teacher at the school. he soon learned mike was the only gunshot victim that didn't survive. >> i'm still in shock, man. it's unbelievable. it's like a terrible dream. terrible. >> reporter: but as the hours passed he also learned how mike physically put himself between the 12-year-old shooter and students like jose cazares who spoke to us yesterday on today. >> he was telling him to stop
7:14 am
and put the gun down and then the kid yelled out no, like, yelling at him, then he shot him. >> reporter: police say landsberry actions gave other students time to escape. >> i love my brother and i wish he was here but thank goodness he could help in any way possible. >> reporter: that bravery was no surprise to students that gathered around a growing memorial that pays tribute to landsberry. the teacher they called batman because he loved the super hero so much. >> he just touched our heart in ways we can't explain. he was a real life changer. >> reporter: that's why jose and his mother wanted to meet reggie landsberry. >> he's a hero to everybody. >> reporter: so they could thank his family in person. >> i'm glad you're safe. i'm glad you're okay. >> reporter: so far police have not released the name of the 12-year-old shooting suspect. back to you matt and savannah. >> all right, joe fryer in sparks, nevada. thank you.
7:15 am
we have new exclusive information about the little girl that was unidentified but found in greece. nbc's michelle kosinski spoke to the lawyer for the couple who had the cover when she was discovered. michelle, good morning to you. >> where did this mystery little girl called maria come from, really? well, that lawyer talked to us at length at times becoming emotional and saying as a mother herself she never would have taken this case if she did not come to believe this story. the attorney says this couple told her maria's biological mother was a bulgarian prostitute who with her pimp and boyfriend tried to find a home for her unwanted infant among families in the area. but the couple at first didn't want maria, having five biological children of their own. she says the husband who has a past involving armed robbery told her he felt taking the baby would be, quote, like bringing a bomb into the house.
7:16 am
that eventually people and police would ask questions. but she says the wife told her when she saw maria, the child looked like a barbie doll and was crying in her arms and she thought, i can't just leave it. i don't want it to die or go into bad hands. she says the couple who are illiterate and can't write their own names loved maria as their own. and are now in as much anguish as the child. it took ten police officers to separate her from them. she says the wife reached her my phone sunday from jail and then the alleged biological mother and boyfriend have gone into hiding. >> probably because the biological mother of maria's is in panic, too. >> reporter: police finally agreed to talk to us by phone confirming this story could be possible. they reported they are now looking for a bulgarian woman but they wouldn't confirm that. they're not ruling out anything but if this story does ring true, that would mean maria was
7:17 am
not abducted. not another desperate family's missing child. remember, though, police said this couple officially registered 14 children as their own. their lawyer wouldn't comment. police are investigating but she did imply that some might have been their grandchildren since roma girls often get married as young as 14. at any rate, this case now prompted the highest court to launch an emergency review of birth certificates over the last six years. matt and savannah, back to you. >> all right, michelle, thanks so much. still ever seas, all eyes are on st. james palace in london this morning where it's a special day for the duke and duchess of cambridge. there's a live shot there. prince george is being christened. keir simmons is there this morning. he's got the details. good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning. it will last around 40 minutes. we have been watching friends and family arrive.
7:18 am
just 22 guests for a small, private ceremony interwoven with thoughts of princess diana, because with what her in mind, this is how determined william and kate are to protect prince george for as long as possible. in just the last hour, they arrived with prince george, a rare public appearance since the birth, he's hardly been seen. crowds have waited for a glimpse of the royals. but hidden behind the walls of st. james palace today will be an intimate ceremony. the godparents include a cousin, william's childhood friend, kate's school friend, and julia samuels who was cles to princess diana. king costten tine is william's godfather. >> you try to make sure the child grows up in a family structure as much as possible as anyone else.
7:19 am
>> he will be baptized by the archbishop of cant bury who says all babies are special. >> there will be great times and tough times. there always are with children. >> though not all babies are christian eed in the chapel roy, it's steeped in history. it's here that diana's coffin lay before her funeral, william remembering his mother at every step of his life. princess diana had to stop her son from crying in his christening picture. >> she put his fier finger in h mouth. marvelous pictures. >> this is charles for his baptism and the queen for hers, but they have chosen jason bell who has pictured claire danes, emily blunt, even mickey rourke, to photograph prince george, a photo that will echo through the ages, and that picture will be historic, too, because it will feature four monarchs or future
7:20 am
monarchs. although we won't have that picture released until some time tomorrow night, guys. >> thank you very much. meantime, a football game with an unbelievable score has carson's attention. >> happy wednesday, everybody. you probably realize in texas, high school football is basically a religion. friday night, an interesting game going on between the aledo bearcats cougars. the score lopsided. it was 91-0. over the weekend parents for the losing team filed a official complaint citing bullying on behalf of the bearcats and wanted them to ease up in the second half. interesting, i should also mention the losing team coach had no problem with the way the game was played. they weren't talking smack or running up the score. begs us to our survey today and it's also worth mentioning that the football is not cited as a method of bullying in the texas education code. did the high school football
7:21 am
team bully their opponent by winning 91-0? take the survey at today.com. back to you guys. >> interesting to see that. >> i had the cougars with the points. >> your fantasy football league. >> i made a fortune on that game. all right, carson, thanks very much. ahead this morning, a warning for pet owners. a popular treat making thousands of animals sick. but why is a mystery. but first, this is "today" on nbc. nbc. because i know it's out there.

8:33 am
athletes are considering not going there. what are your thoughts based on the fact that you're a gay american? >> well, i'm a gay american. i have married into a russian family. and i have been a long time supporter of russia, the culture, the country, the language, everything about russia. and while this law is a terrible thing that you can't be gay publicly in russia, i plan to be there in full support of our brothers and sisters there and not be afraid. if i get arrested i do. if not, great. but our presence is needed and for all the olympians that worked so hard, a boycott is the worst thing you can do to all of these young people. >> good for you. >> thank you. >> congratulations to you on your retirement and welcome to the nbc family. >> thank you very much. >> great to have you. >> coverage of the olympic games begins february 6th live in sochi. >> we look forward to it. let's get a check of the weather from mr. roker at arizona state

university. >> hey, guys, we're having a great time here. we brought hats for you guys don't have enough for everybody right now but we are going to make sure everybody gets them. i want to trade you a hat. can you give me that sign you've got there? >> yeah. >> this is mr. happy matt. one of these kids is going to take my job. they made a sign for every one of us. because one of these kids is going to take every one of our jobs. it's fantastic. more hats. we have hats for everybody. let's show you what's going on as far as my weather is concerned. here's what we've got going on. for today, fog along the southern california coast. we have a beautiful day in the pacific northwest. lots of sunshine there. we do have snow showers around the great lakes. we're also looking at a beautiful day tomorrow along the southern part of the country. you know what, here's one for you too. there you go. okay. that's what's going on

8:36 am
[ music playing ] as far as cruises go, this one, for one hour every saturday night, couldn't be beat. the only requirement, set a course for adventure and your mind on a new romance. your fearless crew, doc, julie, and isaac would keep you laughing. >> here's a list of people you might think of inviting. >> and who knew which 80s stars would be on the promenade. >> and no trip was complete without a trip to the captain's table. under captain stubing it was always sunny skies and smooth sailing. but was everything really so lovely aboard the love boat? gavin macleod. good morning. >> thank you, thank you. >> i feel i have been waiting my whole life to meet you. >> i could say the same thing. >> i was going to say, you know, when i was a kid, the love boat
8:37 am
was my favorite show although i don't think my parents allowed me to watch it. somehow i saw every single episode, though. >> that's why you're so successful today. but it was a wonderful thing, you know? it was the first time any show was done like that on the water with a cruise line with three different kinds of stories and these huge guest stars. the thing that was so great about it, i think, is that the critics hated it. they said this is going to sink like the titanic so about four years later we were in 90 countries. we started a cruise industry and gave rebirth to the cruise industry. >> even your own agent when he first got the script had colorful language for it. >> i said what do you think about it? he read it before i did. he said i think it sucks but do you want to read it? i said sure so i said i don't think there's ever been anything on television like this and my wife looked at it and she came out after ten pages and she said if you get the right people, put it on the right time, this is going to go. >> and to go back in time, this
8:38 am
was not a period of time when cruising was very popular. you write about in the book that people who then went on cruises would write complaint letters to you. >> yeah, i would get those too. they thought i was a real captain. people would come on looking for me and doc and everyone else. they had to get off at the next stop. >> before the love boat you were on mary tyler moore. and this book chronicles your whole life. a supporting character in the story is your hair or lack there of. when you were a young actor you were worried this would prevent you from getting parts. >> that's why i had to get a hairpiece when i came to new york. i got a job at radio city music hall and i had to get a hairpiece. my roommate had to loan me some of the money, is a second hand hairpiece. >> is that the piece. >> $125. and that belonged to somebody else first.
8:39 am
>> well times for tight. you didn't have a lot of money. >> right. >> you would window shop and you had your eye on one particular luxury item. >> well, i was living on central park west. inside under 74th street. worked at the music hall and i would walk down and walk home every day because i couldn't afford $34 a week to take a bus or anything but i would always pass on 6th avenue a men's shop and i stopped every single time in front of that window. they always had a fruit of the loom underwear display. it was 69 cents a pair. >> you wanted them? >> i couldn't afford it but i used to look at that and say some day i'm going to get you and now i go in and buy a six pack just like that. that's really making it. >> gavin we hear your whole story. there are highs. there are lows. it's a wonderful chronicle. when you look back on that time today and everything you have been through, how do you reflect on it? >> i'm grateful. i'm grateful i went through the
8:40 am
hard times, the difficult times and good times and the best times are happening now. these are the best -- i'm 82 years old. this is the best time of my life. >> i can't believe you're 82 years old. i want to see i.d. because you look like the captain stubing i remember. >> thank you, that's because your parents wouldn't let you watch, really. >> two final important questions. number one, why was doc so appealing to the ladies? i always wondered what was it that he had that made him such a lady's man on the show? >> i think you'll have to ask bernie. >> okay. because i have always been curious about that. >> i wondered myself. >> he seems to have a gift with the ladies. >> especially as a character. they had great scenes together. he was pinching himself every single day at work. he's such a great guy. >> and finally, this might have been the reason my parents didn't want me to watch it. there was an endless stream of guest stars. a lot of 70s hook ups. casual hook ups. is there somebody that was a
8:41 am
best kisser that you kissed on the love boat. >> joan collins. >> really? >> yeah, she played elizabeth taylor kind of character. she came on the show and had eyes for the doctor and she was gorgeous and wonderful. she had written a book. i went down and helped her that night with her first book being published and everything. my wife is the best kisser, though. >> there you go. we'll leave it at that. captain stubing, gavin macleod. nice to see you. >> thank you. >> the book is called "this is your captain big bargains from jeans to blankets. >> we need them. >> this is "today" on nbc. >> we'll give you a blanket. >> thank you so much. pepper jack cheese, mushrooms,

8:51 am
is out. it's number one on amazon. printing up 2 million books. could you have imagined this when you were tolling away on the first book years ago. >> no. well i was in my parents house in rubber ducky pajamas. >> after the success of the first two did it put pressure on you for the last one in the series? >> well, i think i learned how to focus only on the story. how to shut out all of those external voices and try to try to find the most authentic story possible. i kind of learned that with the second one so when the third was coming out i was able to focus. >> i was reading one review and it described the book as ruthless. do you know where they're coming from? >> i guess i understand why they would say that. but to me, what happens in the third book feels like a very satisfying end to a lot of the characters stories. so i don't know if it was

ruthless so much as earned i hope. >> you have some of these long lasting characters and you showed no mercy to some of them. >> well, i don't think i have ever set anyone up to believe that any of the good characters were safe. i mean in the first two books we certainly from our share of losses. >> right. >> so it's in keeping with the tone of the trilogy. >> the first one comes out in the spring? >> march. >> you were on the set in chicago. >> yeah. >> what was it like for you? these characters only lived in your imagination and on a page. what was it like to watch actors and actresses playing them? >> it was pretty incredible because i wasn't sure that anyone would be able to capture the characters i devised but on set i realized howell they had done with casting. they felt very real to me as the characters that i had written. >> now, let's do this, we have so many people that are fascinated by this series and so we have carson over in the
8:53 am
orange room and he has tweets from some of your biggest fans. carson, what do you have? >> i do. our viewers are super psyched. what is the scariest thing about finishing the divergent series? >> the scariest thing? i think the scariest thing is letting it out into the world and just trying to let go of it and, you know, as an author, the second that the book hits the shelves it starts belonging to you and starts belonging to a lot more people. the scariest thing is the pressure to make them feel like the ending is satisfying. >> carson, do you have another? >> yeah, one more quickly, will you consider expanding the series? >> will i consider expanding? you know, i really planned the arch to end in this place. i feel like the ending i am proud of it and happy with the way it ends. i think it ties up all the stories that it needs to and i'm

from nbc news, this is "today"'s take with al roker, natalie morales, and willie geist live from studio 1a, rockefeller plaza. welcome wednesday, october 23rd, 2013. al, as you may have seen, isn the road at arizona state university having some fun down there. >> we always new he was a devil. now he's a sun devil. >> we will check in with him for just a few minutes. i was watching the last hour. >> best story of the morning. you have to see this. >> 17-year-old, aria. the british kid. you have seen the video online. his father comes home. he shows him his report card. he got a c in math.
9:01 am
>> take a look. >> that's the reaction from dad. he's so proud of his boy. can you imagine? >> they worked together as a team. he helped his son with his homework. so when he got the c, we interviewed them in the last hour. they are just the sweetest father/son team. and you get the real sense. he wins father of the year award. he couldn't be more proud. if he had gotten an a or a b. >> this kid needs to be in movies. how great was this guy? and the dad as well. and the emotion and the joy were still in the selling the today. >> how sweet. >> he's gone on to college. he wants to move to the united states and be a chef. he is glad he got the c because he tested out of math. >> it is an example of great parenting. the parents can celebrate the small victories, like a c, a passing grade. it was such a hard thing for his kid to get there. for them it was a team accomplishment. >> he knew all that went into getting the c.
9:02 am
>> favorite story. love, love, love that. >> an example of incredible parenting. we're going to get to other examples which you may be thinking. >> high school football game in texas started a big debate outside ft. worth, texas. aledo defeated western hills 91-0. one player on the losing team taking it very hard and filed a bullying complaint. an official bullying complaint which now the state has to take up and investigate. for the coaches not easing up when the began was in hand. he pulled his starters early, put in a running clock after half-time which means it doesn't stop on in completions, time-outs. >> they have a no mercy rule. this is texas football, texas lights. no mercy there. here's what coach buchanan had to say. >> one team learned what it feels like to get beat 91-0.
9:03 am
and the other one learned it's not a whole lot of fun when you beat someone 91-0. >> he didn't sound very sympathetic in that sound bite. if you read through all of his remarks he said i sat down after the game and asked myself what could i have done to prevent that? he said we could have won 150-0. >> he did everything he possibly could. >> he stopped the clock. he stopped throwing the ball. >> actually, students -- the other team's players actually said, if they could have had that result and could have -- they actually tweeted if they could have done the very same thing, they would have. nothing happened in their point of view in that form was bullying. so they said that was not bullying. >> you know, that's a huge margin of victory. and the truth is this team, the winning team, has an average margin of victory of 77 points. so i think the problem is they're in the wrong division. they need to move up a couple of leagues. they're beating up on everybody.
9:04 am
>> i played sports pretty competitively and soccer in spain. there it's religion. we got crushed. the scores were 17-0. but for us it was celebrating the small victories. if one of us scored a goal or stopped an incredible goal, it was like yes. and that's the moment. that's what you want kids to learn from i think. you're going to lose. but life is not fair. kids need to learn it. it is high school too. it is not little kids. my son's rec league have a mercy policy. they can't score 10 goals over the team. in that sense there's something to it. little kids don't handle losses well. >> there is something in the rules in texas where the coaches could have gotten together at half-time and call it but the coach said he didn't know about that. the other thing it gives players and kids who don't get in a varsity player a chance to play. so they get a chance to play and practice. >> everybody gets a chance to
9:05 am
play. >> you can't as a coach say stop playing. >> that's what he said. i can't tell them not to play hard. you want them to learn how to play the game and play it well. to say go be terrible out there, kids. you're not going to do that. >> when i saw the headline 91-0 i thought, man, he must be a jerk. but he did everything he could. >> it's not bullying. some are saying is it unsportsman like conduct? i don't think in that case. he did everything he possibly could, except maybe change divisions, which is what needs to happen. now, this is extreme parenting. >> this is extreme parenting. this is tough love taken to the next level. in connecticut two high school students were arrested and charged with an under-aged party. you know how they got arrested? their own parents called the cops. they took advantage of their parents's columbus day weekend away. a couple of parties over three
9:06 am
days. guess who shows up to bust the party? the parents. then they tell the cops to come and bust the party. good thing, they're minors, so that's not going to be on their record. when they're applying for college, they to the floor to check the box. >> that's a tough lesson. >> these kids were arrested. >> would you call the cops on your kids? >> no way. >> never? >> no way. no. would you? >> i don't think so, no. i'm not a good person to ask. >> now, if my house was completely destroyed, on the other hand. if i came home and it was trashed. >> i wonder if this had been a pattern. like this had happened over and over again and they finally said, you know what, let's let the cops settle this. you throw everybody out of your house and you sit down and talk to them. >> i think the parents busting it themselves would be scary enough. i don't think having the the police showing up and arresting them. come on. those kids will never be right after that. >> i shouldn't say this. i kind of had the opposite
9:07 am
parents. i'll leave it that way. >> they let you have the parties? >> they supervised them and charged cover. >> supervised. >> only later when we were mature and ready. >> wed a great moment earlier this morning with al surprising the team there at asu. and matt and savannah kind of set it up. let's take a look. >> the present. >> whoo! >> hey. >> what a shock. go easy on them, ladies. we need him back. >> you get an al roker. you get an al roker. >> the students at arizona state have decorated their entire dorm in "today" show gear. they sent in the video. they didn't know al was coming. al shows up in the sun devil's
9:08 am
mask. >> it surprised them all. al, what's amazing, as you said in this twitter age you would expect that somebody would have seen you somewhere, even just showing up at the airport or something. but nobody blew your disguise. >> i had the sun devil had on the entire trip from the time i got to the airport at laguardia, got on the plane. they didn't -- tsa didn't even make me take it off. it was great. >> are you coming back ever, or are you going to hit up the campus? >> big kegger last night, right? although i've got to admit, i'm a little disappointed, we have lost some of the students. they have kind of peeled off because they can't hang. but this is hard-core right here. >> whoo! >> and a big tip of the hat to morning anchor doug mian who
9:09 am

9:36 am
all i want is that moment for willie to do one of these. he let mess go and i run. >> and scream. >> screaming and yelling draws attention and will oversensitize the person. plus willie is going to say he's a little crazy. maybe i don't want to be attacking this woman and he may let me go. you can also do lower body. >> oh, good. we're going to lower body. >> yeah. >> demonstrate that, please. >> so lower body, let's do something where you come at me from behind. give me a bear hug from behind. >> now if i'm this way -- go ahead. yeah. >> focus, willie. focus. >> i'm sorry. >> you're attacking. >> right, i'm attacking. >> i'm smaller than willie so at this level where can i go. i'm going to go for his foot. a lot of women think i'm in heels. your heel is your weapon. that's perfect. you want to take that heel and put it through the top of his foot. strike the shin. use your heel and go for the shin. if you can get the groin -- i
