7:06 am
instagram of your mother when she said we have had enough. >> i don't follow the instagram feed from donald trump. >> reporter: as bush and trump touted differences, hillary clinton put out her own ad, gleefully suggesting they are just alike. >> most of the other candidates are just trump without the pizzazz or the hair. >> reporter: this morning nbc news said the bush campaign is cost cutting. they say the fund-raising is going well, but clearly the un unexpected staying power of donald trump has forced all the republicans to reconsider that this might be a longer, tougher and more expensive campaign than first anticipated. matt, savannah? >> chris jansing, thank you. >> in the meantime, the racing world is in mourning. a popular indycar justin wilson died a day after he was struck in the head by debris from

flattering text after the encounter, she laughed uncomfortably, told a school nurse the sex was consensual. how do you deal with that? even if you believele the that? >> i think her inconsistencies are more significant legally speaking. the prosecution has the burden of proof. she's not believed there can't be a conviction. >> we were sheing the alleged victim remained in court during the testimony of the four young men and had to listen to accounts of this alleged sexual i encounter in sometimes demeaning language. there? >> she has the right to be there and decided to be there. she's been very emotional in court. you have to wonder if it has an effect on the jury. ultimately, i think they have a against this young man. as to the forcible rape, more serious charges that's a tough one. >> the prosecution may res today and the defense is potentially calynling just one

8:41 am
8:42 am
it's 8:44. it 's been 24 years since buzz bissinger shined a light on football in west texas. friday night lights was a book, movie and television series. buzz went back to visit six members of the panthers he originally profiled. he writes about the embassy appearance in a new edition of the book. buzz, good morning. nice to have you here. >> good morning. >> was it the plan always to go back on the 25th? >> it wasn't. often you do it by e-mail, phone. i wanted to see the kids face to face. it was an important part of my life. >> did you have expectations of what would have happened in the players' lives? >> some i could have predicted, some not. some of it's great to see them. in one case it was tragic. >> let's talk about the tragic case. miles was a star player but got injured in the preseason. >> right.
8:43 am
>> what happened? >> one of the reasons the books endured is because of miles. a black running back from the wrong side of town. not a lot of money. he was basically treated as a football animal. it was his only skill in life. when he got hurt before his senior season that was it. he was cast aside. he had no academics, no underpinnings. the result when i saw him was he's in prison. i have to say i wasn't surprised. >> does he talk about the days and being featured in the book? >> he talks about those days in a bittersweet way. he liked the book because the book was honest in terms of parents living through their kids. it's bittersweet. i think the movie -- you know, the exposure is a double-edged sword. you get the exposure but you are who you are. >> one of the guys you wrote about in the book, don billingsley, the renegade did drugs, drank alcohol.
8:44 am
25 years forward, how did he turn out? >> he's done great. the worst barometer of future success is high school. i thought he would be road kill, the first to end up dead. don did get religion. had a close friend who committed suicide his freshman year in college and he woke up. he's now a health care consultant. he looks great. he's at his playing weight. it's unpredictable as to how the kids do. >> the public reacted in a positive way to what you wrote. i mentioned what it went on to become. the people in odessa had very, very mixed feelings about your finished product. >> right. >> they were not happy with the way you described their culture. >> right. >> the racial divide in town. >> correct. >> when you went back was the tension still there. >> there is slight tension. because of the movie they ignore me now. folks, the book came first. they ignore me but i'm going back to do the book tour.
8:45 am
i had to cancel it 25 years ago because of threats of bodily harm and two public venues wouldn't have me in odessa at a bookstore. they said, it's too can he recall. i will not take back a word of what i wrote. >> as i say it and now that i know you're going back, has the culture changed? you can say it before you book your flight. >> the culture has changed. winning creates obsession. they are no longer the winningest team in texas state history. there is not the fanaticism, but other places, not just in texas. all over the country. we care more and are more obsessed with sports in this country than ever before. it can be dak ngerous. >> one of my favorite books ever. i love your work. 25th anniversary edition of "friday night lights" available in stores today. up next, a special performance on the plaza. carole king live with the cast of the musical inspired by her life. but firz st on a tuesday morning
