"I don't know. They don't want to come away without points. Here. Wets lines the month. Wow. They're gambling. This is again. Campbell right here. Have the backfield wince is lobbing it and it is incomplete and no Flug pay through it for her team. Butler Akeem Butler, who you've hardly heard. And he put it up there, and Butler couldn't come down with it. Our butler had never been targeted in the NFL and any other receiver maybe just said he's got a bad hand. That's right. Eye is serious idea. What? I know what you want. You want to hear what Doug's got the sack? Well, these options whoever this guy is, you know, initially he was going. He was heading to the wrong side of the field beaten when he got back over to the right side of the field. Or the right side of the formation. He was uncovered and when we snapped the ball, the defender, um had gotten back over there just in enough time to really knock the ball away. He's a big athletic guy, and we put that play and specifically for him and and the Giants made a play. Excuse me, Jonesy. Yes, I have that right. You did. This guy didn't even know what a line on a place designed for him. It's the only play and he went to the wrong side. He has one play in the playbook. And he lined up incorrectly. Biggest playoff team that moment, Jonesy. At that moment, I would have had to use a timeout. Yes, take him out of the game and say maybe you would want to try a different Korea. How confident would be it for the quarterback? That's gotta throw him the ball. He's looking over. Where is he? Right now? The next one. I am a hawk when I watched you this stuff because I like it when the coach has got to make a spot decision. This is during the ridiculous 97 yard drive that I thought I put the game away for the Giants on the middle of this drive. They have third nine and they throw the ball to Sterling Shepherd, right. Sterling Shepard clearly goes down before he reaches the marker. Correct? Yeah, I I have no idea with Joe Judge. Their coach would have done fourth and inches. I'm not sure, but he did not get the first. Just that. I know. He knew he didn't get it. Either way. We're going to get that place. No, I know he did. But at that point, he is apparently what happened. They didn't do a good job. Cover Decide. You know, they didn't. Um Doug Peterson wasn't sure what to do. But he was a former quarterback out, right? So he finally got the word from upstairs. He didn't make it. So Doug took the red flag and threw it 20 yards, so it would be near a ref. But much like Doug's quarterback career. It was incomplete, but it was a wounded here is here is the way they described it on TV.

"But it sounds like he escaped a major injury in the big spectrum of things. Oh that's good news. As I mentioned the bucks, they have much more of a January view than they do early October view right? So in the grand scheme for them, what's Most important is getting healthy, and of course, you know sliding in the division, the Division playoff, make the playoffs to have a chance in January but all things considered. This is probably a big picture thing good for them that it's a minor issue. But Matthew, we've already dealt with without bucks receivers or the threat of one of them not plane because my gibbons we know in week one went from questionable doubtful questionable to get him decision to playing. So we've not doing very much. Much. But we have talked about replacement players in this box offense. So the names that we're going to dive into. Scotty Miller Justin. Watson who think himself has banged up as well. He didn't play last week but he the slot guy assuming health for him but I think does this mean increased opportunity for Rob Gronkowski who we saw sort of after a slow start to the season had had some nice moments last week in. Came this close to a touchdown, Oj? Howard. We've started see. Some OJ. Recently to me I think I would rank the pass catchers Mike Evans obviously then you go down to Scotty Miller me and then I think I'm going to Gronk Oj here I was encouraged by what I saw last week and I think it continues but I don't feel super strong about that and I. Think both guys might really kinda devalue each other both guys i. think are titans outside the top ten this week maybe like much further up then I would just say this is generally speaking when you're trying to speak when you're trying to wish something into existence. and. That seems to be the case right now like the boxer like Gronk is the blocking tight end and now they're promoting, hey, are blocking tight added six catches for forty eight yards, eight yards a catch. So he got an end zone. Look I mean. If. That was not a great thrower by Brady. Like if GRONK comes gone down with that touchdown, we feel than the near. A yet but I think for now I'm with you in that like we entered the season with great hope and expectations about this offense and it's not that it's been brutal so far I just think we thought there was a chance that like any week you could play many pass catchers in this book softens it feels like right now you can play one. That's my Kevin who's coming off of a great stat. Line to catches two yards two touchdowns third player in NFL history ever do that dude was efficient. Yes. What did what needed to be done? He took care of business. Let me what he did other would you rather have two for two for two and gets what that's fourteen point two fantasy points or have six catches for seventy three yards and the answer has you'd rather have the two for two for two right But here's the thing I was going to say here is that. They play the chargers at home this week. Charters come in really banged up. Defensive. Starters gone like you tweeted this out yesterday five. All right. The charges has. Done for the chargers we always have injuries right now but five defensive starters throwing James. Chris Harris, but they still have actually really good secondary depth and two weeks ago Minisster Wind James but with also Melvin Ingram and Chris Harris. They gave Patrick Mahomes. They made them like semi mortal person recorder. So this is not this is a pretty good defense. All things considered. Yeah. But it certainly and you would expect Casey Hayward to shadow Mike Evans would be. ranking just a little bit. Let's move forward to find your dowse up. We've talked about him for the past couple of days. We have any definitive update on him right now for Philadelphia. Yes. Yesterday remember we were talking about the nature of a fracture how long it could be if it was chip fracture could be a couple of weeks. If it was a different kind of fracture could be more than a month sounds like he's going on injured reserve. So we know he'll be out at least three weeks. You get some clarity there. It's been described as a small fracture and I would take that as an encouraging sign especially if he comes back from I are and he can function in. Practice that week maybe maybe get him back in about four weeks but at least know for now you're not GonNa have him. The team also placed just moments ago Jalen rigor on I are for those years saying I thought he won an I r. last week. Well, did he did not actually end up on I? This strikes me as they didn't need the roster spot last week, and if he's going to miss more than three games, it's not that big of a deal. If you wait by a week, they presumably need the roster spot and just note, and this might be one of those things like applies to like the seven people in the deepest of Dynasty leaser listen to this podcast but. I at least assembly interesting the Eagles signed Akeem Butler off of the cardinals. Off of the panthers practice squad, he was a fourth round pick of the cardinal last year out of Iowa state. Plant out for the year for the year and interesting part about the hulking Butler thing is they said, they're gonNA, play him at tight end hockey. Butler was a wide receiver in college, but he's a big guy. He's huge in the part of the reason why he fell to the fourth round is he's very steph or sort of tight hip guy and was not able to make the most of his speed in his brief time in Arizona. But maybe just file it away. You know like here's how we follow here's where it might matter and I don't want to put the car too far ahead of the horse here but. Zach Ertz has already conceded like this could be my final year in Philadelphia right with his contract situation where it's at which I think is crazy again. I. Think One of those players in the NFL I. Pay Him all the money if I could. But in the event that happens for those that are already turned the page at twenty twenty, one maybe hockey but maybe there's like a five percents he becomes just say that was the guy that I liked coming out of college that I and I thought was really interesting and I remember talking to Kyla Murray about. Him when I interviewed Murray at the NFL PA rookie premiere, his rookie season, and he was talking up Butler. He's very excited about, and then soon after that, of course Butler loss for the year, it's unfortunate. But there, there were some flashes there in terms of Butler and he just he's a guy that can win a lot of fifty balls and he's you know a big body guy with good hands that can go up and get the ball and so yeah, you think about how much? How many tight end sets the eagles run? He does become a very interesting. Deep Dynasty League I like a Bunch of Dynasty Leagues where it's tight and premium like. So yeah, like you know he's a couple of bucks me. I have used way worse draft picks on players in dynasty. Let go of quickly they are no longer. My Dynasty. Stefan you. We're GONNA history, tomorrow night I'm not sure if you're aware but tomorrow night, we'll be the first time in the modern era of the NFL, the two teams Oh and three or worse play on Thursday night football you feel the buzz already. The jets maybe possibly could maybe maybe maybe Jamison crowder maybe yeah. It sounds like I'm fairly optimistic that he could be back..

"Back here along with it the west campus location the Iowa state cyclones you mentioned it that's one of those teams that don't before why five and four record when the when the four losses are by a combined eleven point yeah they they you know stormed back against the Oklahoma they were two point conversion away from from one in that thing and then you know Baylor Adam down twenty the nas and they came back took the lead she's twenty one cause of great fries million with took the lead twenty one twenty in the fourth quarter you know so yeah they they are a force to be reckoned with that they play even better at home than than on the road and you know we we've been there before obviously I coach there for three years and I know how rabid their fan bases and so it'll it'll be a a challenging challenging game for us I've heard block party compared to how similar was a couple years ago as a sophomore is that an accurate comparison yeah probably you know he's he's made tremendous progress you know he's six in the country and in passing yards per game and I I think just their their plan they they you know last year they had some really good outside receivers Akeem Butler being being one of them and their their vertical passing game was was the full and lot of those guys left and now they've got some big physical athletic tight ends that.

"Thanks because the names I'm going to say next. Oh Peres seventy two. Yes Kirk seventy seven yes yes willfuller is eighty three. Yes good best ballplayer. I think Davis could be a good baseball play. I draft a lot of Dede Westbrook. Where's Tyler Lockett in their ease way higher especially in best ball? He's fifty fourth fifth round. I think that's probably too low. I think around for pick okay cool so that's a good question from Eram thank you we are the team set. Apparently I'm not in that. Here's an email from of it when a plan comes together. Does that what they say. Maybe ah that shows turbo food don't have best shows here. I bet if you watch it now. I bet if you watch it now that it doesn't know the whole like three or four shows from my childhood and they're all still I'm you like stranger things. You will like dating yeah the no name on this one Dave. Let's go with Frank Brum Basaglia California team in game of thrones declared flavored handed him dear Dante Randy Chris and Jake Vikings <hes> Jake Reed. I'M GONNA tend Team Dynasty League. What do you think about the friendship strategy of drafting Akeem Butler and Andy Isabella he by the way he also order he also has Christian Kirk those Argon Isabela well no those he already has kirk dies <hes> I mean look i? I still think there's a lot for ca-came Butler to accomplish but if you're thinking of this year plus potential long-term it could be as about Johnson right the fear going to pair up colonels receivers way to go if you want to do that. Keyshawn is going to be available in the fourth round right. It's kind of interesting though because we're bowlers the song it's a good it's a good question. It's a good strategy because in a dynasty league if you take a wide receiver in the second round in the third round of the second round in the fourth round and one of them hits. I think you're going to be happy so dedicating both of them you know putting them on the same. N._F._l.. Team the friendship strategy there I actually I think that's pretty cool. I like it right now the A._D._p.. For those guys according to fantasy football calculator Isabella is still going Butler still going top twenty bowlers at Twenty Isabella's. Bill is twenty one and Johnson Comic Keyshawn is not registering A._D._p.. With them which only goes through forty two players okay.

"We are trying to do these this big board from the giants point of view. So if the giants drifting away running back it should be late in the draft. And most of these top guys shouldn't be in consideration. I actually my two favorite running backs in this class are single Terry. Daryl Henderson, just because they both are just absolute pinballs. Both of them are almost impossible to bring down they squirt through holes. They shouldn't be able to get through. They bounce off tacklers left right and center, and they're just a lot of fun to watch. I have mile Sanders injustice hill up pretty high. Because I believe they both have just the physical traits to be. Good productive pretty much every down runners in the NFL. This is not an ethnic running back class. But those two are probably the two best athletes in the class. Then my bottom five or Damian Harris from Alabama David Montgomery, who I could I wouldn't hate higher because his contact balance is just off the charts. Rodney Anderson Avoca Homa leisha Holyfield out of Georgia. And then finally finally Benny Snell out of Kentucky, I mostly just focused on guys who if they're not going to be well rounded running backs at least give you one thing and with Montgomery deaths contact balance with Holyfield in Snell. That's just their ability to punch at defense. They are very violent runners. So that's pretty much where I am with my running back board. Yeah. That makes sense. I think I focused more on contributions in the past game which few have heard talk about offense at all. Should not surprise you. I think the interesting year is of our ten I think we have for each that are not on each other's boards. My running back to Trayvon Williams is not in your top ten. So I think that's just kind of interesting to go forward. But again running back not really position of interest for the giants, which is what most of you are listening for. So what's move to a position debt might be of some interest that is wide receiver. So I'll run down my top ten Akeem Butler is wide receiver one decay Metcalf at two JJ are Sega Whiteside from Stanford at three Emmanuel hall from zuri at four marquees Brown from Oklahoma five AJ Brown from old miss at six. Andy is a Bill of UMass at seven Nikki. He'll Harry from Arizona state at eight Terry MC Warren from Ohio State at nine and Gary Jennings from West Virginia at ten Chris. Why let's let's dig into us. Yeah. My top five decay Metcalf at one and kill Harry to AJ Brown. Three JJ or Siga Whiteside or and Hakeem Butler five I mostly have keen Butler down that are because of just the consistency of his hands..

"Teams in this Steelers team, you know, with no lady on bell. And no Antonio Brown. This is oh this whole new deal. And and I would say, you know, especially for a forty Niner defense that struggled at times last year. It's it's nowhere near as scary deal. That's coming in. Well, we'll see how it shakes out but home. Yes, you said, of course in the division. You know, Arizona LA in Seattle. But then you've got at home Atlanta. Carolina. Baker mayfield's Browns Steelers. And as you said greenback. Reimburse road scheduled to me Willard, I think is interesting, obviously, the division games. And it's always tough to play in Seattle. But I don't think it's tough to play an LA Niners one. They're a couple years ago. Granted it was week seventeen. But I think you can win in LA it's on hostile you definitely win an air Zona. I think that they do play Tut to really tough road venues they play in the Superdome against the saints. You know, that's always tough. And then fall Baltimore. I dunno. Just seems mostly words Baltimore's much tougher at home than on the road play. The ravens in Baltimore this year. But no team has lost more. When you go back to free agency and whatnot of few weeks ago. I thought Baltimore really lost a lot. And I know they ended up getting Earl Thomas and whatnot. But that team is going to have to kinda redo itself. And I also think it the forty Niners defensively right now are preparing for life in a division with Russell Wilson and Kyla Murray. And if that's what you're preparing for then you're probably ready for the Mark Jackson too. And all teams are going to do I'm predicting a really bad year for the ravens this year. And the reason is is you're gonna have the game tape of what the chargers did to them during the playoffs last year. That was the. The first time somebody saw Lamar Jackson and the ravens for the second time. And you saw how I mean their offense barely moved the ball. Now. The chargers have a talented defense. I get that. But I think it's game tape time soft more year for Lamar Jackson. And I think he's going to struggle. We're going do are no stupid questions coming up in just a second. Of course may Oku is going to join us next hour as well. I believe twelve fifteen I said twelve thirty twelve fifteen mayo coz going to stop by. I really want to ask two questions to you. And to the audience in this next segment before we get to our no stupid questions on the forty Niners. Because to me, you know, it's interesting the forty Niners have every talks about all the pass rush. The pass rush defense the defense. And it's all true. They need to improve their secondary need to come up with the pass rush. But I was looking at some numbers last night the Niners last year finished dead last in red zone. Touchdown percentage. They are not a non fat. Factor offensively under Shanahan in the red zone. Two years ago. They went they were twenty-seventh in the NFL so twenty-seventh and then dead last thirty second in red zone. Touchdown percentage. It's hard to win and be a playoff team when you're horrendous in the red zone. So they're going to have to do something wide, receiver wise. I was reading an article about draft. Rumors, and what can be believed and there were two interesting ones on the raiders Niners the raider draft. Rumor was that the raiders are really high Dwayne Haskins and that the really high on Eljay, call your the TCU edge rusher, and they may go call your at the end around one. Despite a lot of people thinking these third round pick, and they may even trade up for Haskins. So we'll see may there's a lot. This is the lying season. That was the rate of rumor the nine a rumor was they're going wide receiver at thirty six. And I think that that's reasonable. I mean, they're entertaining wide receivers all week long deebo Samuel AG Brown. Akeem Butler, Nikiel hair. I I love AG Brown deebo. Samuel was great and mobile, I guess a keen Butler, though is just a freak. And I don't know how much you watch of Iowa State football yet. None not none. He's caught this guy on the bowl game. He almost two hundred yards. He had a one handed catch. They they against Washington state in the Alamo bowl. This is a six five two hundred and thirty pound wide receiver that runs four four eight like ten inch hands and thirty five inch arms. I mean that with thirty almost thirty six in charms this guy did almost twenty reps on the bench. So he's got tremendous spring. He's almost like a te'o type physical guy. But I'm just kinda wondering if you're a Niner fan. You know, who do you want wide, receiver wise? And then if I told you all Nieves aside if you can just have one player in this draft who's the best player who's going to go number one. Who's your who feels a certain need just looking back? We look back in this draft in a decade. Give me the one guy that if you were the very first pick in the draft. And you're starting to franchise you want in this draft. Would it be Cuyler Murray? Would it be Nick Bosa or you're going to order off the menu at all over Quinton Williams or Josh Allen or Devon wider somebody? I think it's pretty wide open. So I wanna get Willard's thoughts on that. And then of course, we're gonna talk a little bit with me Oko coming up in a bit about, you know, what's going on with the with the forty Niners at the local pro day, and some interesting names, we'll review some of the names down in Santa Clara today. All right. We'll take time out right here. We've come back with more on these sports leader. It is time for traffic,.

"If you missed the last episode, and you're a Commissioner, I encourage you to go back and listen there were five Commissioner tips at the end of that show. Got a lot of great feedback on them part of our job here is to help you have a better league. So you enjoy fantasy football more. Yes. And it's why we got into this. And to give you hot musical drops. Jason how just inflamed inflamed of were your mentions after all the b- boxing went. Yeah. I had like two people that were like, yes. The beat boxing was great. So I normally lit. I'm relive pretty lit you. I don't know if you want your I don't know if you want your your mentions inflamed or not I just. Don't you? Because you don't know anything. For that. Don't you know, that's engorged? I don't know. I know it's not. All right. Quick question of the day. All Dr Mike got a bold disk on my now. Time line. Brooks. If you need to leave I understand. All right. Okay. Thank you. If there's a door real close to you need to take off one day. I get it. All right post, combine quick question. Who is the one oh one right now in a dynasty rookie draft. No the draft hasn't happened. The NFL teams haven't selected anybody. But Mike you mentioned on the show Tuesday that you've bought maybe the first three or four picks. We're going to be wide. Do you think the number one pick is as of right now to me, it's an Akil, Harry and. I think that surprises people we talked about Metcalf on the combine show because he was the big story of a man who's literally they're all his body is made out of of muscles. He has actually no skeleton frame just muscle. His skeleton is made out of more muscles. They're making new textbooks based on this. This is how strong years he ran a four three three except he his agility drills wore close to catastrophic for especially compared to the the forty that. He just ran his production profile is down. He's actually a pretty raw receiver. He still going go very high in the first round Nikiel, Harry is if Metcalf weren't around Nicole, Harry would be the talk of the combine to me. And I think he'll end up at a at a good spot in is a little bit more well rounded wide receiver at this point. So I would take him with the first pick. But this this rookie class is very interesting. Thing because I feel like the last few years you knew who the first pick. Well, they didn't matter what you knew it was going to be saquon Barkley you knew a couple years ago. It's going to be Zeke. It doesn't matter where he goes, you know, who's going to be Leonard fournette too. Yeah. It was I would say it was pretty much assumed it was going to be him. But always knew what the top tier was this year. I we need to see how things she after the NFL draft. It could literally be one of six or seven different. They fall into the right spot. And they look best. I'm with Mike. I actually liked Nikki, Harry, the most he would be my one on one at the key is a good enough route runner so great yards after the catching go deep. He can box people out. He looks like a red zone. Perfect body type and target on those catas- it catches. So since we don't know where they're going. I'm gonna I'm gonna lean Nikial. And it's it's so ironic because the Magai yes, but I think decay Metcalf ago ahead of him in dynasty drafts. Because I think he'll be drafted that fairly, you know, probably ten or fifteen picks ahead and Aqeel, Harry, and the NFL I think so I wouldn't disagree and based on that fact, alone I think between combine hype and being higher the higher drafted wide receiver. I think that'll be enough to get him to that one to one spot, but we will see. You know, you put into keel in the right place or Akeem Butler or another one of these wide receivers and things change pretty quick. So big time news. All right. We ran the alternate draft kit pre-sale giveaway and that ended on March first now, you can still preorder the ultimate draft. In fact,.
"akeem butler" Discussed on Ross Tucker Football Podcast
"You get a lot of men coverage. I is that x eyeso- receiver, and I think Butler would with experience in coaching can really fill that role effectively. So what's the knock on? I'm Greg that he's not ranked higher. I think some people, you know, had feel he had too many drops. And he did have too many drops. But I wouldn't say that he has bad hands. But I think this kid, and again, you know, me Ross I don't sit around here and say where a guy gets drafted. So I don't know that. But boy, I really like Akeem Butler, maybe I'll be totally wrong. But I think this kid is one of you know, obviously, everybody's talking about de que MetLife Metcalf and deservedly so, but I think this kid is fascinating. Well, I absolutely love. And I mean love these positional breakdowns every week next week. We'll either dive into the running backs or the tight ends the old line will be here before you know, it, but that was excellent Greg the player comparisons the guys that you felt strongly about like Ridley and keen Butler, and maybe on the other side Kelvin Harmon. That's what I love you know, that you've got the strong opinions just based on the tape. And then we'll see how plays out, and you know, to Greg just because it guy successful or not that doesn't mean you were wrong or right? So much of that ends up being what situation he goes to how to blah, blah, blah, blah. Oh that that's really important, and it's hard to know that. But I think that's absolutely critical Greg you're the man thanks so much for the time as always thanks for us. Appreciate it. He really is the man I mean, he. Loved Ridley love to keen Butler could tell he wasn't. He didn't like Kelvin harm in that much or Nikiel Harry. I love that Gregg is the man, by the way, even if you start to lose your hair, you can be the man I've been losing my hair for like ten years, and I'm still the man, or at least trying to be keeping as much hair as I can with the best company I've found to do. So and that is keeps. So I'd say five or six years ago. Maybe even longer I started doing the one thing you see on the commercials and putting it on the top of my head rubbing it in a third doing the other thing where you take the pill in the morning, then I found out about keeps. And literally it takes five minutes online. Boom. They've online doctors that review it and say, Yep. You qualify. We'll ship you the pill. We'll ship you the topical solution. I have not for over a year. Now had to go to the doctor to.

"And it's and it's mean like, you know, they've had some pretty good individual. Players, you know, particularly on the defensive side of the ball. But but you need more than two or three guys in order to compete in the big twelve and they just they just haven't had enough, you know, above average players on their teams to be competitive, even with the the lower rung big programs. All right. Give me a number ten nine six five four three two four before. All right four. We're going to Ames Iowa State proof that I a pretty down program with a good higher and some investment can turn things around. I think Brock Purdy went six and one this past year as a starter. And with that the clones have had specific breakthrough talent on both sides of the ball. Akeem Butler, Joe landing a couple years ago. David Montgomery, who've I mean, these guys have come and gone these past couple years, but do you expect I wha state to go from recruiting? Do they go from having two three four? Four of those types of guys two four five six seven eight nine of those guys. I think so. And and I think Whiteley, you know, they they lose a couple of their headliners. You mentioned Montgomery and Butler, you know, to be sure, but they bring back the bulk of what was the best defense in the big twelve last year, you know, bunch of guys that are all big twelve caliber Brock Purdy. You know was arguably the freshman of the year in the big twelve this past season. I mean, I was state only lost one game of before the bowl with him at quarterback which was the game in Austin. They you know, I don't know if you saw the Washington table game. But I mean, they ended every opportunity to win that was a terrific game. And you know, I would say showed that, you know, a lot of people felt like until the end at least Washington was the class of the Pac twelve and you know, they showed they belong in that game. So I I'm very bullish on you know, I was state, especially. With Purdy on in his development. He was talking about Texas earlier in their quarterback issues. The problem. I status had basically cynical lawless. You know years ago is that it looks like they've got their quarterback of the future and import ever reason it does it carry over and Joe landing was that guy then moved to linebacker because of. Somebody else. And and you know, they've had a lot of moment. The they've got a lot of moments with quarterback empty podcast. Yeah. He has the injury. So now, it's Brock Purdy. I think that would Campbell and and offense it infrastructure that they have I feel pretty good about pretty chances to become a really good player. Not only in the big twelve but college football in general, but that is something that that they they have to ask the question. They have to answer that that's really held them back from you know, being indication bowl team to I could consistent, you know, eight nine win team, you know, every other year that they are kind of knocking on the door, become and under MAC people. Are they a benefit Sherry and this is to their credit for taking advantage? Are they the beneficiary of a lot of inconsistency and unrest in the sort of middle class of the big twelve with, you know? Texas Tech, and TCU and Baylor and Kansas state all inexplicably having pretty disappointing last couple years. Yeah. Although, you know, they eat I it's not like they had just beaten up on the middle tier teams. True. I got the game a couple years ago. When one of the most like unforeseen upsets, I think I've ever been where. You know, I was big O's to Norman with their four string quarterback and be Baker Mayfield at Oklahoma. In Norman, you know, team that would go to the playoff, and and, you know, have an overtime away from playing for the national championship..

"But during the year, that's why at Oliver at one point looked like the first or second pick now is around that fourteenth spot to Atlanta. I think as far as a running back owes Trayvon Williams at Texas A and M if he runs great heat had a phenomenal year for JIMBO Fisher, he jumps in Dexter Lawrence than play in the in the meaningful games at the end with the suspension. He is a freakish town if he has those big time numbers at three hundred and forty pounds, he jumps heavily high that defensive tackle group, especially with Jeff. For Simmons coming off the AC L from Mississippi State and his stock dropping a bit at the Thompson safety at Alabama. Didn't have a great second half of the season two. Now the big plays. But he's a talented kid. He test great. He could be in the late first early second round discussion. And as I said earlier, I want to see what Andy Isabella UMass receiver. Retirement runs, your fastest guy. Umass. But how does that translate to the rest of the draft class? We'll see when he gets the the Annapolis this week almost every year at the combine you get some guy that you guys know, but the average person does who becomes a story. I remember years ago. It was my namesake Matt Jones that ended up playing himself after a combine into a first round pick. Give me a guy that you think after the combine nobody's talking about. But we start talking about. Akeem Butler, Iowa State. There's a kid. That's got you know, down the field. Ability separation is the key. If he would his height runs. Well, Matt he's gonna go. Hi. All right into Butler wide receiver. I was state. We'll keep that in mind it came Butler. Now, you you and I talked a little bit off air about Colorado. You would not throw if you were him right though. I wouldn't throw I wouldn't run either. And because you'll need to it's the most important things they interview and football IQ and being able to say, hey, all about football, which we know he is now and don't put yourself in a position where you're standing on the field in my opinion with somebody six four six five when you're five nine you don't need to be standing there next Daniel Jones, or or whoever it may be drew lock your Ryan Finley. You don't need that the show up medical look many. I talked to him interview. That's it that visual comparison, it'll be striking. If you standing there next to somebody six or seven inches taller than you. Everybody right now is talking about Duke and college basketball Zion. Other teams Kentucky Virginia, Gonzaga, Tennessee have a shot, but what team outside. Of the top five could make a run to actually win.

"Cyclones are set to receive the second half kickoff today. Back to receive standing two yards in Washington stated zone the crowd filing back in after an active halftime ceremony just concluded moments ago. And for Washington state. Jack, crane left-footed kicker. The football sense it towards the end zone Longo from his own one will return it out their side with a grace and a setter step brought out of the twenty seven as we check in with Alex cordray who ROY talked with coach Campbell. He said, hey, we might have lost you players on defense that were adjusted for targeting calls, but we've lived this all season long and that's adversity. This will be a great test for our team in the second half. And he wants to see some other players on defense step up on the other side. He was impressed with birdies moxie. He said he liked the way he responded late in the second quarter. He feels like his offense isn't a rhythm. But they just have to stop shooting themselves in the party taking over for zap Nolan after one series against Oklahoma state back on October six. The cyclones went seven one after he was essentially inserted into the lineup from right to left goes cyclones band. David Montgomery over right? Tackle powers his way across the forty ahead of the forty one a gain of thirteen yards on. I was stayed offense. I think one of the reasons to be confident you'd have to really strong playmakers. One of them's David Montgomery. He's just a spectacular player. They're hurrying up here birdie farside first reception by that you six four hundred eleven powder, then a fifth year senior who started his career at temple hill gain ten yards and move the change once again and the other spectacular player. Roy, of course, Hickey Butler the wide out with a hundred twenty four yards receiving in the first half. And you gotta get more people involved. Good to see eaten with the reception cyclones and plus territory on the far hash of the forty eight yard line party looks towards the sidelines. The now will change the Blake. Call. Trading in the shotgun. Gumri planks into the lap of the to by one formation. The shotgun snap. Fires at date. Butlers. Open makes the catch with the twenty yard line four south there in Iowa State three consecutive blaze all picking up Chuck yardage. That's again twenty eight. Well, they brought the corner. I thought they were double teaming Akeem Butler, but the corner came from the boundary on a blitz and laugh Schuyler Thomas the safety over the top on team Butler, and that's a match up steadily at Iowa state's favor. And off to the Gumri back to the line of scrimmage. Brought down hard there. The twenty yard line Aguayo making his first tackle the evening. It'll be second down in ten cyclones trailing twenty one ten and going back to the big game two Butler. It was brought Purdy who recognize the corner blitz and knew we had to get the ball to his white out as soon as possible. Butler now six receptions over a hundred and fifty yards more than twenty five yards per catching leads the country in that category. And a time out call by the coops. Facing a second down and ten time out on the field as we step aside. Thirteen.

"Just a nice throw that time by Purdy data thirty four Iowa State using tempo. Montgomery tripped up most of the thirty five yard line by Thomas once again, that's a gain of three on first down. Can't overemphasize Iowa stayed will really kind of the Ron pass. They'll run some RPO. No runs sewed inside zone stretch plays with Montgomery who goes out of the game now, but it's really up to the quarterback this offense to make the plays at thirty two in a nice job at at the command. Four beijing. Empty backfield for property on second down and seven six minutes in here, Valero Alamo bowl, we owe scoreless tuna cyclones and Cougars. Sheldon crony checking end gets the Dow plunges ahead after a gain of two of our right tackle. It'll be third down crony. Twenty-one carries all year long forty yards. He did have a lot of activity during the course of the year. But this is what the bowl season allows allows guys to come in. Maybe they'd been hurt. Maybe they've been out for some games. Makes for an easier. Third down here. Five facing the cyclones. Iowa State from right to left Purdy again looking towards the sidelines out of the shotgun. As a pocket off his back. It's got to be picked up by Washington state near sideline a chance for six Marquez straw to the end zone for the store. Flag on the pill for taunting. Let's check the penalty strong read that pass right before party through it. Another turnover. Kooks, right? I. Well. Marcus strong jump the route. He jumps the slant. Route that brought parties trying to throw to who else. Akeem Butler Butler will always draw a lot of attention and Purdy locked on him. And and was going there the entire time. He looked stared down paid the price sportsmanlike conduct. Pain. Not sure where he taunted was it because he outran everybody. Then look behind. He looked behind him and started the slight high stepping you could tell he was probably saying something at that point in the no fun league yet. They're not in the no fun league yet that is not taunting. Holding the ball out in front of him later the five yard line. You wanna make clears breaks the plane. I you have to interpret intent there that's difficult to do. But I get your perspective. So take the touchdown off the board. Washington state will have the football fifteen yards back from where the penalty occurred at the five. I'm no mathematician, but those spotted at the twenty ten just remarkable how that happens, and it's such a bold mental. Blistering momentum killer. Three by one set for the Cougars from left to right in. They're all Princeton uniforms, delayed hand off the board stutter steps. Ribbon down in the backfield. Tommy's gonna lose a yard and a half. It'll be second down in long to Quan Bailey who leads the cyclones and tackles for loss setting up shop in the backfield there. I just don't think that's taunted. He did not. He did not had held it behind him and put it behind him while he's running that would be. But to put it in front of you and score. I disagree with the car impressed with you right now. I liked that take your starting to convince me. On second down Menchu shotgun. Three by one chat board in the backfield. Planking him to the right chess is snap surveys closer towards the end zone. Double coverage and Inca lake up. Third defender drifted over at the last second. And that was dangerous toss looking forward to rebel Harris. Yeah, they tried to get the ball down the battle ROY in anytime late down the middle. It's either double covered or it's triple covered that that lasts safety kind of hangs out. He's the one that causes problems. And. Mitch you got away with one. They're seven minutes remaining and a fast moving first quarter here in San Antonio. We are scoreless between Washington state and the Iowa State cyclones third down and twelve Borges flanking mentioned in the lap. Here's the shotgun. Snap all kinds of time. Surveys end zone wide open for the touchdown. Bell has score of the year from twenty two yards out. And that was too easy. It just goes to show how good gardener mid shoe as he hangs in the pocket. He's not going anywhere. And he almost surgically dissect the defense splits the cover to and bell right below the goalpost is Hanley strike by the golden arm up..

"I understand the offense has been predictably potent. I will also add that I can't find any statistical reason to pick Iowa State in this game because as I see it here, West Virginia is better across nearly every statistic and just across the board did West Virginia little. A bit of trivia booted booted it did West Virginia score more second half ofensive points against Texas Tech on the road or last year against Iowa State on the road. Now they did not. So the answer is a trick question. That answer is the answer zero for both. They did not score any points against Iowa State in the second half last year in Morgantown, and they did not score any offensive points in the second half against Texas Tech this year and all in. On Brock birdie. Interesting new, I always state, yeah. Who freshman? Third string quarterback relieving Zab Nolan to a lot of success at Oklahoma state. There isn't a lot of statistical reason to take state here. The game is in Ames is at night tonight. Aims at night, huge opponent with a quarterback gunning for the Heisman Trophy probably fell off of that with three red zone turnovers last week against Kansas. But nonetheless big primetime spot where there aren't a lot of big primetime games, other than Michigan, Wisconsin at night. So. I'm going to go clones here. David Montgomery is questionable, but he didn't play last week against Oklahoma states. I think Akeem Butler has a very nice day for the clones. I think Brock Purdy I don't know what sort of nickname we need to come up with. At least I need to come up with my so completely in on on the Brock star. No brought us that stopped bad for I tell Kay. Yeah, we're gonna work this to work shirty the party like Brock star. It's not bad then. Okay. It's very Birmanie. Yeah. And that's what worries me. Yeah. I'm gonna go Iowa State Iowa State here outright. I think they win this game back and forth. The spread is once again went about six point six points. Yeah. Yeah. I think they take this thirty one twenty eight. Whoa. Okay. I was state's my home dog of the week..

"With that sort of confidence receiving core that is without their star from last season and to immediately just there. I guess there is something about Matt Campbell in his staff that gets these guys so confident and so comfortable within this offense. He runs, he throws, he goes what? Eighteen of twenty three over three hundred yards. Akeem Butler has some big plays. Milton had a couple of big plays at withing. One went for sixty. So I think it is just be confidence. Preparedness of Matt Campbell in his staff along with the buy from these players in Oklahoma state Taylor, Cornelius has a good game and it's also Iowa State weathering. You know, Justice hill making plays on the ground and through the air and getting four different guys caught touchdown passes Oklahoma state doing everything they needed to do on offense. But ultimately, after that Boise state went in, which that defense looked so good, they've taken. They've taken to significant steps back against Iowa State, Texas Tech. And finally, in the big twelve, we had Baylor thirty, seven k. state thirty four. Baylor minus four was one of my locks, Dan, the fact that the only one this game by three is pretty ridiculous. I am. I am bitter about this because they basically could have blown out case state. They made a lot of stupid mistakes. They had one of those half back passes where the half MAC, like decided before the play, that he was gonna, throw it into whatever coverage, just a lot of dumb stuff. They couldn't stop Alex Barnes. On the ground who had a big game for case day, but ultimately they win on field goal here. Thirty seven to thirty four. Yeah. And I mean there's the old adage of, you know, I you lose ugly, then you lose close than you win close and then you win pretty whatever. And so in that perhaps in granted, aside from that Oklahoma loss that maybe they're going to win some games close in that step up. Connor brewer has a nice enough day. I like the the day that they're both Denzel mims if you saw his ridiculous bobbling touchdown, catch and Jalen Hurd has a nice day and Kansas state showing fight. Alex Barnes was ridiculous. Both through the air and on the ground probably better on the ground. So good for Baylor. This game was tied with eight minutes left and they close out a game against a team that is certainly beatable that that's something also just in terms of the first game you talked about, what are you doing? We'll career three, three interceptions in the red zone. Santa Grier needs to be retired way too. Especially with what West Virginia has coming up. But really fun day, I would say in the big twelve. All right. Let's move over the ACC quick four games that we need to discuss here. Yep, I will run through them quickly..

"On Wednesday. Very guilty about forgetting this game in our run sheet. Iowa State started their backup Zab Noland because Kyle Kemp was injured last week and he threw for three hundred sixty yards. Iowa State remained plucky. It feels to me like regardless of situation, they're gonna fight you and that was the story here. Even after Oklahoma jumped out to a big lead seventeen to nothing early. See, I think calling Iowa State plucky I won't say under cells or misrepresents, but I don't know if it tells the full story because I thought offense with a backup quarterback, who lot of people consider to be not necessarily better than the starter, but perhaps has more armed talent than Kyle camped. I think Cal come to the more steadying influence perhaps on this offense. But the connection between zip Nolan and saying, it's Akeem Butler, especially if you saw his, I think it was the first touchdown catch. She had. Where he just ran through five or six Sooners. He made them look silly and so cool. The CIO a state replacing Duke of his art Allen Lazard with number number one quality receiver in came Butler who almost two hundred yards. Yeah, on Oklahoma. So there is something and I thought David Montgomery did a very nice job early on carrying this offense across the field. Multiple times I was state is full on pretty good. This is this is not a. I mean I don't. I don't. I can't be in your head when you say plucky know what you mean by that, but I am fine with saying, I will say it's a pretty good team under Matt Campbell, even with a backup quarterback. Not missile. Here's a thing. Okay, fair enough. Then that's fair criticism. Yeah, I state was a eighteen point dog in this game now and they didn't play like an eighteen point dog. No, they never in eighteenth traded haymakers. Yeah, it doesn't matter who they're playing. They're just always in the game. So if plucky is the wrong word for it, if we're playing semantics and that's fine. But I to impressed with Isla state, they gave Oklahoma game even if they don't win. They're gonna give you a game. The problem for Iowa State is just collar. Murray's Tim good as ridiculous out a second to talk about collar. Murray as Mack Brown likes the collar Murray, three forty, eight and three touchdowns fourteen carries eighty six yards on the ground, a monster game for Cuyler Murray and equally monstrous game for marquees Brown. Nine catches.

Third quarter in Lawrence Kansas thirty one Rutgers fourteen back to Ames, Greg. Antonio is a very optimistic view of potential. Thank you very much back here. Jack trae stadium, very sunny and fairly still day. Looking at the wind powered turbines and windmills off in the distance here to the east barely moving about five mile an hour winds not much relief for an eighty seven degrees and not much relief for Iowa State. They get a touchdown to bring it to within one score. But. Oklahoma answers with authority a six play drive sixty seven yards Sony five of six of the place on the ground. Trae sermon a twenty two yard rush for the touchdown. And you notice the different offense the principal on that dry. This is the first time the running back by committee. They ran the ball. There is right down. I was dates. In terms of the ran off tackle right up the middle and the running backs today saying job and moving at kick going to go into the end zone for a touchback. It's funny. Oklahoma, Tony, I feel neglectful in the fact that we haven't spent a lot of time talking about Rodney Anderson. They're great running back from last year. Who was just outstanding had a bunch of touchdowns and was a preseason all big twelve out for the year after injuring his knee last week against UCLA. But because there's so many weapons normally a team loses their all everything tailback. It's the first thing you mentioned that we haven't mentioned a lot. That's because the depth on this Oklahoma offense and the number of weapons they have. D'hollander quarterback for Iowa State. He's been good and relief of Kyle camp. Low snap out of the shotgun. Picks. It up the Turkey. Swung to the far side. The David Montgomery Montgomery. Hesitates inside of them back outside takes a big lick. Kenneth murray. The second man has just embroils at held them up. A gain of seven on the play and Montgomery can hurt defenses by catching the ball of big and find him. Well, you talking about a gun. I was I like to see I was taken into situations. Who's out there? On second down trips left to give to Montgomery back up. The middle spins through one tackling drags another tackler out to forty to gain of six cyclone I down. Mark Jackson, finally stopped his progress as we're under nine to play in the third quarter, a fourteen point sooner lead. Cyclones upping the tempo little bit. Here's no another shotgun. Van rush joined veneer sides, complete the Sean Jones Jones tries to spin away from Parnell. Motley doesn't quite get away. Nearly had the football strip forced out of bounds in front of the cyclone bench your side, cenovate seconds. We'll make that even more important Zab Nolan read the and he got rid of the ball in a hurry to do in a situation. Joe did a good job over just Nolan fourteen ninety two hundred ten yards in a couple of touchdowns Montgomery outside. Back then spun by a defender still stays on his feet all the way down to the thirty seven yard line. Justin Boyle, finally stopped some sixteen yards of angry running David Montgomery cheaply about him open field runner. That's what he does not only open field runner. He runs for. He is fun to watch. Nolan. Look it up top down the sideline routine Butler. It. I. In front of Justin royals thirty yard game. Butler. I'll tell you what I found a player in brothers. He believes he's the main man they're going to the main man with the ball completed Hafbro down under further review. They're going to take a look at it if popped out of his hands. Did he have the foot down before he controlled the football two cyclones rustling when you get it off if it stands he has five catches today had three last week easily the leading receiver for this team. And they felt like they didn't target him enough last week against Iowa. I think they were right. Well, I think the big thing is in the backfield distributor. He gave the ball to everybody out there the field and the difference. We may be seeing you know, they talk before the game is taking a review of this. We think it will stand as called we talked about it. Tony last week. They had Kyle camps whom they love is the quarterback was he's a guy the checks down and goes underneath. Whereas Noland is a guy who likes to test down the field. And I think that's been very good for the cyclones as we await this review. And I agree with you got a question. Does a good job of managing the team goes to the basil. One hundred and fifty one without. Apple review. The ruling on the field is confirmed completed fast. Always loved the verbiage. Not just stands firm. And Butler did come up a little bit gimpy after the catch walked off with a bit of lymph. We'll see if he's back out there at a few minutes that was one of those vulgar calls. I'm not saying the whole bottle, dude. Just the way that he phrased that conversation be confirmed. It is. Single only the quarterback in the backfield came Butler not on the field as there's five wide to the nearside including David Montgomery behind a couple of tight ends and two wide receivers. Now, a major shift. They saw this in the first step Montgomery ships to the wild wild. Fakes the hand off gonna keep it to the left side groping and waiting finally be stopped by seven Wilson. Backup linebacker waited for the left side of that line. A gain of three good. Good bush. Josh mueller. Freshman sophomore up on those inside spots on the left side for Iowa State. I have a real difficult time when they wanted that formation is going back. Joy. Sooner way back to the ball. You know, he's gonna wind up the middle Akeem Butler back, and he rode the bike and hydrated. Now. He's in the slot right on second goal for the cyclone. Sam seemed Buckner moves to the left side. Montgomery the tailback shotgun. Most nap picked up Gumri gets the football takes off one tackler and then tries to get three two more, but Khalil Houghton too strong holds onto the set up. Third and goal at one for Iowa State. Nice job by the quarterback draw that football off the turf is still get it to his tailback and the two players have to lose themselves. Here's a question. Do you throw the ball team Butler Baltimore? What are you doing down? Offset. Nightside. I was told it if you have Montgomery, you run the ball has exactly what took place. Fourth and one last week on their opening drive and they fade to a team Butler. And I could see why they like, but a lot of people say why didn't you to Montgomery? Awful lot. You talk about a high. Quite frankly is the first time these office with some points on the board in his capacity. A lot of has to do with the ball bully. Throw the ball down the field extra point up in good. Once again, I'd say one score game. Hiwa state scored three points all last week against Iowa day of shaken off the early season jitters, and now they're putting points on the board.
