even without parental consent. the state majority controlled by republicans can override that veto and make that bill a law. if that happens, arkansas would be the first state to have such a ban. alabama and tennessee are working on such a legislation. lawmakers are also forming a bill to block students from competing on sports teams with gender identity. >>le so what's interesting about this, he did something that liberals wanted him to do. he's been a very popular governor there. it's interesting to see what the fallout is. >> 20 other states are considering similar legislation. north korea says it's dropping out of the summer olympics in tokyo due to concerns over covid. that is bad news for south korea's president who wanted the two countries to fill the combined olympic people as a way to build momentum for improved relations. north korea said it's free of the coronavirus, outsiders doubt that due to the country's poor

8:01 am
morning. boy, the game wasn't even close. >> i know. it wasn't. >> but it's a heck of a story. >> gonzaga was the favorite. once the ball was tipped, it was all baylor. that means it's the bears who now look back at 2021 as the first season. prosecutors are trying to give the jurors information about police procedures. according to the police chief, chauvin should have stopped the neck restraint once floyd stopped moving. just when you think we're at the end of the road with the pandemic with the vaccinations, up pops michigan with yet another wave. we're waiting for a formal announcement from the mlb. the league said it opposes restrictions at the ballot box. and colorado is one of the easiest states to vote in. >> baylor beat the gonzaga team beating their 30 -game win streak. >> it's a tough one to end a storybook season on. students are proud of everything this team has
8:02 am
accomplished this season. >> the most exciting thing that happened this season. >> you did amazing. >> both schools have a lot to be proud of. you have to hand it to the baylor bears. >> they came out on fire. >> the baylor bears crushed and crushed is the word the undefeated gonzaga bulldogs in last night's men's basketball championship game by a score listen to the score, 86-7 0. ouch. baylor never trailed to a gonzaga team that was undefeated until now. that comes after years of rebuilding under the head coach scott drew. dana jacobson is here. how did baylor get so good? >> they'v been good. i guess we weren't paying that much attention. >> that's what they're saying. >> this was their first title game appearance in 73 years.
8:03 am
baylor dominated both sides of the ball. they held gonzaga to the lowest point total of the season. lights out shooting. a 9-0 lead. mid way through the first half, baylor created a 19-point lead. gonzaga never got any closer than nine. jarod butler, the first player with 20 plus points and 7 plus assists in a men's national title game since carmelo anthony. that was in 2003. and butler was named the final four's most outstanding player. and it wouldn't be the day after the big game if he didn't join us now on "cbs this morning." there he is. look at the net. >> that is -- that's how you have to show up. >> any sleep whatsoever? >> no. no sleep. rocking the same shirt, same hat. just enjoying the moment. it's so cool.
8:04 am
and just can't wait to get out of this bubble. can't wait. >> i know you guys got to see some family last night, and that reunion had to be special. i also was told you teach second and third grade sunday school back in waco. i'm curious what do you think that reunion with those kids will be like? you're a national champion now. >> i guess it will be cool, pretty similar to going back to school and campus and everyone congratulating me. it's a phenomenal moment. great honor for our team and what we've accomplished this year. i'm glad you brought up sunday school, because i'm not preaching a prosperity gospel, but, man, our lord and savior, jesus christ, he held us through the ups and downs and we came out victorious. it feels good. >> jarod, you can always count on jesus christ. i want to talk about you. i'm curious, does it feel as good when you win the game by a blowout as it does if it's a close game? does that matter to you?
8:05 am
and what happened when you went in the locker room? you came out on fire. so answer the first question first. i wondered about that sitting at home. it was 9-1. at halftime they were up by 10 points. i thought maybe there's a chance here. what is your thought process? blowout or close doesn't matter? >> yeah. as a basketball team, i know i didn't come -- a couple of my teammates didn't look at the scoreboard for the first half. we left it on the court and tried to play our way in and be happy with the results. as a team like us, we try not to look at the score and feel like the game is over over. gonzaga is a great team. they can come back from any deficit. we try to say the game is not over. don't play the scoreboard, and that's kind of our mentality. i think the blowout is better than a close game. >> yeah. better keep it safe. you almost did not come back to play this year. there was talk about you entering the nba draft, and then you decided to come back and
8:06 am
said we're going to go out and win a national championship. why did this year feel like the year for baylor to go all the way? >> i don't know. i think after the first year when we had a pretty good run at it and we had a phenomenal season, it was like oh, this season is really good. like, we were like there's no way we can get better than this, and then coming back, we already had the experience. we already knew what each other can do, and we gelled pretty perfectly. it just took one extra year or another opportunity. and the guys, they did a great job. those guys are amazing. and really great high level people and basketball players as well. >> when scott drew took over the program, your coach nearly 20 years ago said he intended to win a national championship. what did he say to you all after the game last night? >> he said, you know, once we
8:07 am
win, it will be an honor, a great moment, something you'll remember for the rest of your lives, and we want to remember the relationships that we have with our teammates and we wanted to play for each other. like, that was the biggest thing. and make sure we didn't leave anything on the floor. it's a great thing knowing this is going to be your last game. you can leave it all out there. that's what he told us to do. props to coach drew. >> you certainly did that. and in a season unlike any other. talking to so many of you during the tournament, that message got through loud and clear. can you explain the level of sacrifice you went through, even different from other college students to get to this point and then achieve this goal? >> yeah. that's extremely hard. especially with the covid and all the stoppages. just mentally, it's draining on your mind, and you know, you kind of are in game mode. you get let down with having to sit out in isolation.
8:08 am
it's mentally draining. i think that's why it's another reason why it's special that we won during this time of adversity and the craziness of the world. but it just goes to show how well we stuck together throughout the whole process, and we fought our way through, and we felt like we were different throughout the whole process. >> that's what i want to pick up. your coach last night said you are all are really good athletes but even better human beings. i was so touched by that. you guys are now bonded for life. you're going to be telling your grandchildren about this moment last night. tell us about your team. what makes you all so special to each other. and for each other. >> yeah. that's a great comment, us being better people than basketball players. i think we're all just sacrificial, like you said. we're willing to actuasacrifice goals and agendas for the greater good of the team. we're extremely hart workers. i've never seen guys work to hard and work on their craft,
8:09 am
and we're also extremely humble. we all respect each other and respect the game and we just appreciate the love and the support we get, and we never take it for granted, and we've always been those blue collar guys that just believe in hard work and your life can change in a year if you put your mind to it. it's special. >> now that you've got that national title, you headed to the nba? what's next for you? >> i'm just trying to enjoy this moment right now. >> come on. >> it's always been my dream to go to the nba for sure. >> now, enjoy cloud 9. i hear it's great up there. >> scott drew taught him that answer, no doubt. >> jarod, thank you. c congratula congratulations. an amazing night. ahead, we'll share a few simple ways to save more for retirement. the most common

♪ in today's survey found 27% of people st
8:17 am
st are able to start thinking about saving for retirement once again. and so we go now to joel schlesinger. rement again. we go to cbs news business editor jill schlesinger. jill, i love this segment, because we're doing it step-by-step, and step one is how do we begin saving for retirement? >> you start small and increase incrementally. what i mean start small, if you work for a company, you can put just 1% of your pay into a retirement plan. this may work out to 20, 25 bucks per pay period, but you start there. what's really great, some plans allow you to automatically increase that. maybe you can automatically increase it. see how it goes. look, the limit for a 401(k) or 401b this year is $19,300. many people are not getting to that maximum 11. if you're over the age of 50 you
8:18 am
it put up up to $26,000. you can get one of those plans and work far. if you don't have accompany with a plan, you can start an ira. again, you can start really small. most of the inkrechlt companies out there allow you to use small dollars to fund these plans. do something. start small, go slowly. >> so people hearing these different acronyms, how can they decide which plan is the right plan for them and their lives? >> i think, normally, what really is the path of least resistance, if your company or organization offers some kind of retirement where they can pull money directly from your paycheck, that's the easiest way to go. we know people save more for retirement when they work for those organizations that allow you to do so. now, for others, again, a lot of companies don't actually offer these plans. you can use an i.r.a. or a roth i.r.a., a big different between
8:19 am
these two plans. it's just when you get a tax benefit. if you use a regular traditional i.r.a., that gives you a tax benefit today. you save your whole career. when you're age 59 1/2, you can access that money. when you take it out later, it gets taxed. with the roth version, you don't get any tax benefit today. but later, when you take the money out, no taxes due. so these are all great options. use what, again, is the easiest for you. many of the big houses out there, they do make it a lot easier today than they did in the past. >> i've always heard you say, jill, that everybody should have an emergency fund. easier said than done these days. two questions about that, how much should be in your emergency fund, number one? and number two, should it be separate from the retirement fund? >> i'm going to start with the second part, absolutely separate from your retirement account. and here's why. what we know when people put money into their retirement, we want that tax benefit to accrue
8:20 am
to them. if you have to go into that account because there's an emergency and pull the money out before you're age 59 1/2, you could be subject to a penalty and you have to pay taxes. now, in terms of how much. here's the really good news of the pandemic. the savings rate has gone sky high. it's amazing to see. and what we're hoping for is people use the experience of having a little bit of extra money, maybe it's a tax refund. maybe it's a stimulus check. you're trying to get six to 12 months of your living expenses in an account that's access to you. i know that's hard to do. >> yeah. >> we learned that lesson last year. we really did. >> jill, that is hard. we've got about 30 seconds left, i'm curious, if you do have to pull money from retirement, because a lot of people do, what's the smart way to do it? >> well, if you did it last year, the c.a.r.e.s. act gives you benefits. first off, if you with drew money from a retirement account, you got three tax years to pay
8:21 am
that tax bill, that's huge news. if you borrowed from that account, there are much more generous rules through the kairt act. talk to your employer, get that repayment started. little at a time. habits are hard to form, easy to break. >> all things including retirement, jill schlesinger, thank you very much. ahead, a major u.s. airlines plans to train more women and people of color to be pilots. you'll hear exclusively from united's ceo. you're watching "cbs this morning." this morning's "eye on money" spoponsored byy td amameritrade.. wewe listen. likeke jack. hehe wanted a a streamlinened vn he couould accesess anywhere, no dowownload nececessary. and kikim. shshe wanted to executute a a pre-set trtrade stratety in s seconds.

8:31 am
in a zoom interview, carney told me he reached out to the indians and offered to fill in for adams. >> as a longtime indians fan what does it mean for you to be out there in the bleachers banging on a drum? >> to be in a position to get on a plane, fly out and fill in for the guy that's been doing it my entire life to show respect to him, that means a lot, you know. every single indians game i've ever been to, john's been in the bleachers. >> he had a great time, even though the indians lost the game 3-0. he also had black keys news if you're a fan. i sure am. he said the band is releases a new song april 15th which happens to be patrick's birthday. >> go patrick. >> i think he's overqualified. make i can play that drum. >> i asked him are you doing some different? he said i could but i'm a

traditionalist. and a head line about them imploding -- >> that's a word? >> yeah. they imploded -- so, i'm talking about a preview of what we're doing next, how to be an adult. l.a. angels relief pitcher ty buckley said he's retiring from baseball. he's making this decision although he's only 28 years old. it confused a lot of people. here's what he said in a statement on instagram. he wrote, life is super simple. find your true passion, find people you love and don't give a damn what any person outside of those lines thinks. everyone is, you're good at baseball, you can make a lot of money. he goes, look, i'm not having fun doing this anymore. life is bigger than this. he's got other loves and passions. >> most of us don't feel that at 28. mine is about steph curry, the nba superstar showing
8:33 am
solidarity with the asian community. he will auction out a pair of shoes he wore in the game. under the quote, under the heavens there is but one family. nice. curry is working in tandem with the bruce lee foundation. they designed the shoe together. the proceeds of the sneaker auction will go to the families of the eight people killed in the georgia spa shooting last month. six, as you know, were asian women. there's a lot about steph curry. >> those are good looking shoes. >> yeah, they are. switching gears. here's an interesting question what does it mean to be an adult? well, stanford university's former dean of freshman looks for the answer in her new book "your turn, how to be an adult." before we talked to her, we decided to ask some 20
8:34 am
somethings what they think it means to be an adult. ♪ >> there's a stereotype around what adults do. you have a job. you have a family. you have a house, a kid. when i'm 21, i have none of those things, i'm a grown-up and i take care of myself as much as i can. to me, that's being an adult. >> i would say, once i moved out on my own, taking those steps, made sure i stayed on top of my bills and just making sure that i never had to rely on my parents anymore. >> i think i define success these days as being happy, or at least being content with myself and with my surroundings. and having the freedom to make the choices that i decide i need to make for myself. whatever that be. >> the steps that i took to get to where i am now, i don't know if i should call them steps, but like a slip and slide at one point, i felt like i was tumbling down the stairs. >> it feels like if i don't get that great job out of
8:35 am
graduation. if i can't support myself, if i can't live on my own, if i can't do all of those things that adults are supposed to do, am i a failure? >> i think i have the idea of what it mean to be adult, what it means to be independent, what it means to be successful. and i'm realizing there is not a really clear line. >> there are no check boxes. it's just really understanding what is required of you to succeed in life or to survive and choosing to do it. >> and julie lythcott-haims who is also a cbs news contributor. julie, good morning. i'm 64 and i'm still trying to answer this question what it means to be an adult. we heard all of those young folks talking about what they think it means. how do you define it? >> first of all, those young people had it absolutely right. thank you for opening the segment with their voices, because it really is all about them. you know, the old definitions of adulting from the 18th and 19th and 20th century were finish school, get a job, leave home,
8:36 am
marry and have kids. and those definitions don't fit our new reality. those definitions were gendered. they assumed everyone was hetero. today, we have more choice and more freedom. for example, millennials and old gen-zs, they're going to live to 100. what will hasn't changed is that humans still need to fend for themselves. pay their bills. but maybe you need to live at home today because the cost of living in your hometown is so expensive. you have high student loans that have outpaced salary and wages. ma maybe you're going to live with friends, your chosen fam. it doesn't matter who you live with, it matters how you live. are you showing up in that environment as an adult? are you taking care of bills? are you taking care of your mental health? are you taking care of people around you? >> you say it's not a check
8:37 am
list. it's a process. what exactly do you mean? >> well, the five definitions of adulthood were very much a checklist of the past. today, we know it's a process. it's not about a lockstep plan or some perfect set of steps you have to adhere to. it's about a mind-set that says, hey, i'm going to try to figure stuff out, i want to be independent, i want to be self-reliant, but i'm learning. we have to reset our mind-set, carol wack at stanford, get out of that mind-set, with the mind-set from this is hard to high do hard things. when we bring a beginner's mind-set to the process of adulting, then we can lean into what we call the beautiful "f" words, failing, floundering, falling. these are life's greatest teachers. if we can accept that, feedback
8:38 am
is the most important one. we can be humble in the face of these things, we can learn and that is the feedback. >> you call feedback in your book the ultimate growth hormone. you said we should change i suck do i haven't done this yet. you made a point of talking to all different kinds of adults. you seem to be going for inclusivity and diversity in this particular book, in a way i hadn't seen before. >> absolutely, gayle, as a black and biracial and queer person i am aware that all lives should matter. we should do the work to make sure that all lives do matter on the page. what i've done on the book is make sure my narrative is very inclusive of all humans, all backgrounds, rationally, gender, sexual orientation. i brought close to three dozen
8:39 am
other humans into these pages to tell the story of what adulting looks like. i think in sharing the stories of so many different people, folks are going to learn, wow, there are folks from completely different walks of life who are nevertheless going the same thing as me. maya angelou said we're more like our friends than unlike. >> hey, julie, your last book was called how to raise an adult. it's for parents. i'm curious, would you advise parents listening to buy this book for their adults to-be, and if so, what do you hope the adults to-be get out of it? >> here's what i'm learning, when in fact our early readers have been parent/teen combos. the younger person, 18, 22-year-old is apparently saying, hey, mom, dad, parent, i want to talk to you about what's on page so-and-so. it's an opportunity to push the
