"The thing that I never forget about Miami, 'cause you talk about the line, right? And I guess we're at this point now where kids don't know about this, by the way, Spencer project you need to put a pin in. The January 1987 fiesta bowl, right? That's correct. Impossible to explain to people what a cultural flashpoint this was. Miami versus Penn State and is the whole, you know, a whole lot of stuff happening. You can go look it up. I can't get you into everything. But the most legendary thing about it was Miami gets off the plane and the team is in fatigues, right? 1986, they all get off the plane and fatigue. And it's all associated with like Jerome Brown. Michael Irvin Alonzo highsmith, Melvin bread and all those guys. But if you look at the clip, but when they got off the plane, the second or third dude office, they tested birdie. They're all kinds of clips in the U documentary where you just see Vinny Chester Bernie posted over these dudes in shades. He loved every minute of this. I don't think he was gold with them dudes nowhere, but he loved it. That is correct. And that is, you can get that kind of like, even if we take it out of the U, which I think is probably if we were to explain to somebody the prototypical example of Miami blending cultures very rapidly over the through sports, that would be one. The Miami Heat, this Miami Heat team. If you have ever seen Tyler hero and Jimmy Butler discussing swimming or the lack of ability thereof. That to me is an example of dudes who just found the right place to manage to mention a place where that kind of stuff can happen and it can happen very, very quickly.

"Tire, right? And so there's always like the Utah defenders. He's like, yeah, yeah, we know. And then because they, you know, and Utah, they're a little sensitive about the fact that people don't want to play here. And so some guy hit me up and was like, well, he's from the suburbs of Milwaukee and he went to Kentucky. Why would he have a problem? 'cause he spent three years in Miami in like I imagine Tyler hero going to Miami would be like, if your foot was a size 12 and you'd been wearing a size ten year whole life and you didn't realize it until somebody gave you a 12. And you're like, oh my God, this is how she was supposed to fit. Well, let me put it this way as you're seeing your Caucasian ass call Cassidy correspondent. I will put it this way. First of all, Tyler hero being from the suburbs and Milwaukee and going to Kentucky people do not understand that I think he innately had an upbringing that gave him, I believe a certain a certain compatibility with, I believe, NBA culture. And yeah, I'm not going to dive into that code there, okay? I think he was really, really comfortable around people of color, generally speaking. Which is something, by the way, that in Kentucky, I think, in places like that, if you're a rural, this is the Randy Moss, Jason Williams theory, that sometimes when you're playing in those places and or socializing, there's not a whole lot of people. There's really not. So the line between who hangs out with whom is very, very thin. And oftentimes gets crossed. So first of all, let's not act like Tyler hero wasn't Tyler hero before he got to Miami. His final form in a place where if you were to be Tyler hero, there is no place where I think you could achieve a more maximal form of Tyler hero than Dave county, right? That's where he's living, that's the experience he had. I guarantee you the minute he set foot across the county line three tattoos appeared on his body that he didn't have before. That he's going from there to Utah for anyone. I think would be the greatest culture. I mean, like line it up for me. Is that the greatest culture shock in the NBA going from one to the other in terms of everything? Even weather and geography. There's only one that I think is comparable and that is New Orleans. The city, Miami adopted the city of sin thing, right? Like Las Vegas calls itself since the yeah, yeah, that's fine. But ain't neither one of them got a whole couple week festival that is dedicated to get the sin in while you can't, right? That's the only one, but I remember when Tyler hero guy drafted, I said this on Twitter, you can look it up. I was like, the draft couple, that boy is Scott storch. I saw him as soon as he got up at the draft, and then I looked at his parents, who were not like this at all, and I just can't understand all the questions they have. If Tyler hero grew up in a world without an Internet because he does what we got to remember about cats like Kimmy she had Hogarth now. They got an Internet, but if he had grown up in a world without an Internet, he would have been the kid and we all went to high school with his kid. You don't really notice it in college, but you all went to high school with this kid where you see them after freshman year and they look like a completely different person because suddenly they found what they really were. They just didn't know it existed. Tyler hero apparently did that after he went to an AAU tournament in tenth grade or something like that because his pops has just got to be over there like huh? How? Yeah, jeez, buddy. Such language. Where'd you get all those tats? He's very much his own dude and very much hit the exact spot where he felt like he belonged. At a young age. And one that I think like, you know, Milwaukee and Kentucky, those places are more diverse than you think they are, and I think he had a greater exposure to it. It just so happens that he went to the Hogwarts for that. Miami, where if you'll remember, for a long time, the university of Miami specialized in taking linemen from all over the place from Canada from Pennsylvania, you know, from Massachusetts, bringing them down to Miami and turning them into Miami dudes in the span of about three months. Yes. That was it. Yeah, it was a great pat Jordan article. It's one of the best pieces of sports writing ever called this line shall not be crossed. It is about this extremely diverse line that they had. The offensive line that protected Ken Dorsey at the turn of the century back in Miami. And it is about how they all ended up being the same dude. Like three months later, all covered in tats all eating wings at the same place, you know, and all immediately learning Spanish somehow, like in three months, just instantly, because Miami has that kind of effect on people who are willing to embrace it and who are willing to go with it.

"NC state and Penn State, by a lot of respected power numbers being a pick them on a neutral. I'm taking NC state every day of the week right now in that matchup, right? So they're not being really overvalued in the market, even though there's a lot of love, I think, coming out with a lot of the previews for NC state, if that makes sense. No, it makes a ton of sense, and we'll obviously get to the defensive side of the ball, but I may as well pivot there. You talked a little bit about the ground game that averaged next to nothing. They lose more than 90% of the returning carries. They lose more than 90% of the rushing yards, but sometimes, you know, you lose two guys and Ricky person in the night that may not have provided that same explosive big play potential, but icky a quantum in my opinion. And I'm glad you touching it. We knew we were going to get there. You don't replace that caliber of talent at an NC state the same way you do it Alabama. It's not a factory for generating top ten offensive linemen picks. And for Devin Leary, that's a security blanket that's gone. He does bring back four of his top 6 receivers. But again, from watching NC state last year, there's nobody that keeps defensive coordinators up at night. There's nobody that you have to scheme for, like, say, North Carolina, when you're playing North Carolina and you're preparing for Josh downs. Yes, the depth is better in Raleigh than it is in Chapel Hill, but you don't have that same game breaker. Schedule wise. I mean, we can talk about it. The 5th game of the season for NC state at Clemson, they're clearly their biggest challenge, but most of their games that they'll play on the road are extremely winnable. And if you're able to get through Clemson unscathed at 5 and oh, this guy becomes this I mean the ceiling for what they can do or I'm butchering all those quotes, but the regardless. It was better than Jordans. Let's put it. Yeah, well, I mean, the roof is the ceiling. I mean, like I said, we're working out sky is the ceiling. That's actually good. You didn't flop that. We're working out our pre season jitters here. So what happens when you have to try and get some of that rust off? But as far as this team defensively, I mean, you look at some of the numbers, they held their opposition below 20 points per game. The defensive line expected to be the strength. And they should be able to operate with a 6 man rotation. There's a lot of all ACC caliber talent on that stop unit. Peyton Wilson returns to the linebacking core paired up with Drake Thomas. They should be as good as anybody outside of Clemson. And as you begin to assess this team on the defensive side of the ball, if Devin leer and company are going to put up crooked numbers, their job gets considerably easier because you don't have to pitch shutouts week in week out. And we can be quick on this side of the ball because it's straightforward. Top ten defense and overall schedule adjusted efficiency last season. NC state only allowed 31% of place to great successful against the run NC state stuff nearly 25% of them at or behind the line of scrimmage. That's a top 5 rate there. Against the pass in known situations, the wolf pack got after quarterbacks, 37% pressure rate on third and fourth down against FBS opponents. They run this three three 5. That really allows them to camo where pressure is coming from. And when you think about the collagen environment, these players, most of them care about academics as well. So they're not spending the entire week focusing on where pressure can come from. When you kind of have a defensive coordinator that is throwing things at you from all different angles and spots in the field, it can be a little more difficult to manage. The kicker here, NC state also had really poor injury luck defensively. 5 opening game starters were out by the end of season, Peyton Wilson down after two games as I am more only played 7, linebacker was extremely thin from the Miami game onwards, but you have a situation this season where the top 8 guys in snap count return, Cyrus fagan last season, the projected starting safe, the only play two games. Dave dorn has so many guys that played meaningful snaps, and everyone came back. He said the most difficult part defensively this season will be finding everyone playing time. If the wolfpack defense doesn't finish top 15 and schedule adjusted efficiency, it will be a wildly disappointing season and to your point, only a dog at Clemson favored in the other 11 games about a 6 and a half point favorite by our numbers hosting wake. This has the makings of a really, really good football team. Now, these variants in a sport like this, right? Somehow Devin Larry gets injured. Throw it out the window. But if he is under center and healthy quarterback, they have just as much of a chance to approach a win number similar to Clemson's. Hey, it's like we said, ACC title or bust for NC state when you get that caliber of quarterback you bring back so much returning production into your point. They were extremely unfortunate on the defensive side of the ball a season ago. They check every box that you'd want for a potential conference champion, especially a team offering a price tag of 8 to one, which is always interesting and it segues into a team on the other half of the draw in the Miami hurricanes where optimism is through the roof with the hiring of Mario Cristobal, the return to greatness, the mantras and everything else you're hearing from coral gables. Miami finds themselves 6 to one at FanDuel sportsbook to win the ACC. There are dollar 50 favorites to come out of the coastal division. Their win total sits at 8 and a half, you do have to lay a buck 20 if you want to go over the total. And when you look at what Miami has done, you give Mario crystal ball $8 million to make it happen in return this program to its previous glory. A new athletic director brings back a lot of familiar faces, including the likes of Alonzo highsmith coming over from the Seattle Seahawks, helping to restore the legacy. Miami though is one just.

"To get started today. While we were both in South Florida last week, coincidentally, but I just basically stayed on the beach, you actually did a little bit of work. And went to UM and saw Mario Cristobal, what's going on there? Well, a lot of big plans for rapid improvement of facilities. So I think they're going to have put shovels in the ground for a new football building very soon. Much needed. You know what? The stuff they have now is so much nicer than it was. They have an indoor, which I've had for a little while now, but it was part of the old green tree practice fields. And there's a lot of stuff that has been upgraded there. You know, it was just, there was a lot of energy in the building. I got to see, you know, it was still a little crazy to see, I saw Josh gaddis. Obviously, I saw crystal ball. I saw Joe. The one that I, you know, you do a double take was I'm sitting in the lounge and here comes Charlie strong. And it's just like, just to see people out of context. You know, like in terms of what you're used to seeing. And you know, he's there, Kevin Steele there. It's a, it is a strong staff. I expect before too long, they will probably end up adding Alonzo highsmith in a capacity and personnel, which is obviously a huge name for Miami fans. And so I think a lot of that has resonated really well. I think they're still going to have to be very active in the portal because there's still a lot of there's still some holes in the roster, but again, it's relative compared to what they're going up against in the ACC. I mean, beyond Clemson, I think NC states got a really good team coming back, but after that, I think it's not like they're playing in the SEC. So it was interesting, like Mario has got a lot of stuff going on. And I think they are very, you know, he's all about not all about, but he is so he is neck deep and recruiting all the time. And you get that feeling when he's just kind of, you know, I think one of they have like an hour recruiting meeting every day. Well, coincidentally, while we've been on the podcast, my Manny Navarro our great Miami writer, just published a new story, a night of recruiting with Mario first of all. Miami coach speaks at Lakeland Lake Gibson home to 5 star cornerback hermani McLean. It's basically a night shadowing him on the recruiting trail. So if you're a UM fan, you're definitely going to want to read that story on the athletic. I just remember thinking, so I hadn't, you know, when we cover the orange bowl or national championship games there in that stadium, everything's in Fort Lauderdale. You never really you're not in Miami proper. Unless you draw unless you happen to have to drive with Dennis dod and then you may have. By accident. No, he does not have the best you don't want to be in the car necessarily with. You're referring, are you still referring? Is this like, do you have a more recent example of that? Are you still talking about that Virginia tech, Boise state game? No, that was no, I actually had a he was driving me back from a media day. I think it was Clemson, Oklahoma, and it was amazing where do you remember the Big Ben parliament European vacation? That's what it was like trying to get Dennis to drive out of the, you know, out of the parking lot of the stadium. I was like, oh my God, we're gonna die. It's just like, because we keep going around in circles like he can not figure out how to get out of the complex. But the time you're talking about was Matt Hayes the fourth person in the car. Yes. We ended up in like three or four different states. Yeah, we were trying to get to FedEx field and I think we ended up in Virginia at one point. I remember seeing seeing science for things that are definitely not in the right direction of the football stadium. Anyway, so yeah, we stayed at a hotel on south beach, and I got a 6 year old. We weren't like the clevelander, like we were in the party section of south beach necessarily. The south beach is pretty vibrant throughout. And I'm looking around one night we're walking at dinner and it's just like, you know, it's a really exciting vibe. And it would be especially exciting if you're a 18, 19 year old kid. And I remember thinking, man, Mario first of all is able to convince 5 star kids to come to Eugene Oregon. He should clean up here. Like he is such a good recruiter and he has this to offer. So, and like you said, a conference that is not exactly daunting. So I expect them to be very successful very quickly. I don't know if that will be this year. You can never really, you always have to temper expectations for year one with I mean, he's there for a reason. They weren't very good. But I would think by the second year and certainly by the time he starts getting in his own recruits, I've got a lot of optimism there. The one thing that I think bodes well, in addition to some of those others, which just from the talking to a couple of the coaches last Thursday was, it seems like the buy in from the guys they inherited has been very good. And sometimes that doesn't everybody say that though. Every new coach say that. It's true, but it's like, I think there's a shock to the system element, like I just remembered when Louisville took over, it was like a lot of players were desperate and wanted the change because obviously the combing from Bobby petrino was such a dark environment, but I think some of it was like, how ready are the players physically to jump into this? And I think so some of that, I think, has been promising. So we'll see. As a roster from my understanding, it's like, there's three good three talented tight ends. Van Dyck, obviously, had an excellent freshman year. And I think they're optimistic about him. And then there's some other gaps in the roster that I think they really still need to address. Let's do some emails. As always, send your questions to the audible pod at Gmail dot com. The first question is from not that far away from me. Michael galvin in Agora hills, California. We have all heard the story about Nick Saban sending his plane to east Lansing only for none of his assistants to board. This is back when he was taking over at LSU. We all know what happened to Sabin, but what happened to the assistance to any fine success and have you ever asked any if they regretted it? I love it. Yeah, I love this question so much. I immediately did the research. No, I have not asked any of any former anyway. That story, as far as we know, is true, what we, in general, I don't know, but I don't know that we can say that any certainty that every assistant had an offer waiting for him at all issue, but there's enough, there's enough truth there that we're just going to go ahead and go down this list, okay? And in general, what you're going to find is a couple of guys did really well and then most of them not so much. So Bobby Williams took over as inter coach before the bowl game that year for Michigan state and they won the bowl game and he got the head coaching job. So I think we could say, even though that his tenure did not go well, you know, he got a head coaching job out of it, so good for him. The O.C. on that staff was Morris watts. Who himself would end up becoming an interim coach when Bobby Williams got fired. He was a Mississippi state for a little bit, then a bunch of Mac schools, most recent evidence I could find was he was at Texas southern..

"They don't they defer to football operations and i've heard story about mark murphy. Have more power come on. They defer to football operations. It's been that way. Since ron woolfe came there in nineteen ninety one and when i arrived in nineteen ninety nine absolutely. We had a president the of directors and i zack committee. I used to give reports to those guys like okay. you know. when's dinner okay. You know it's like they would ask you questions to coach's job manager and they'd be like sound good to me so listen this this. The packer way is there's owner in with their first fight interests or portfolio with other assets. Jaw it's all football and then you get back to the general manager so what that means is the. Most autonomous gentlemen adjourned front office in the nfl. No one's looking their children. I can speak to that when i did. Contracts whether did a twenty million dollar contract or fifty million dollar contract. No-one no-one saying hey good job or bad job. They trusted me in the packers. Trust the general manager to deal in personnel period. Here's the problem. Packers have always had elite evaluators from ron woolfe to ted thompson. John schneider mckenzie john. Dorsey elliott wolff so many alonzo highsmith so many that i felt was sam seal League dana and of course. Brian good brown was a young scout when i was there areas. Scalp and he's worked his way up. But i've said this before about scout scouts or scout you know. They are in their element in a dark room. Looking at film standing on the sideline with their arms crossed looking at players. They are not the best with communication skills. They are not the best with persuasive skills. They're not the best or tours. They are not the best With communicating the visions of the organization. They're all about players. They're all about football. I get it but the packers have lacked that and they lacked it publicly. You know we know. Ted was so residents. Speak to the media doesn't seem like that's much different with brian. Who's ted disciple. And that's fine. You know if they're if they're not glib with the media that's fine but with players. They need to be more expressive with aaron rodgers. They have needed to be more expressive. I'm not talking about in the draft room by jordan love. I'm talking about a communication line. there doesn't appear anyone in the packers front office. That's a point person to aaron rodgers. Someone feels comfortable was. Somebody wants to talk to someone. They can talk to more than about more than football. Aaron us to come up and talk to me. He talk to john schneider. Tuck elliott wolff hits. You know there doesn't seem to be that person there he feels. It seems to me everything. I'm hearing neglected.

Browns fire coach Hue Jackson ahead of trade deadline

"General manager with their old. Hey, coach, hue Jackson. It was destined to fail. And it did finally on Monday when the Browns released Hugh Jackson with time left on his contract this season and next season. So the Browns will be paying him through two thousand nineteen but it will give John Dorsey and Alonzo Highsmith and Elliott Wolff in the Browns for an office the chance to go hire their own head coach, they are I in the pool this year. They get the start looking for an interviewing coaching candidates right now, if they want to go talk to Lincoln Riley at Oklahoma taking go do that. If they want to go talk to any other college coach, they can go do that. They don't have to hide behind anything right now. The Browns are the first out for a coaching search. And then of course, they make the change in offense coordinator firing Todd Haley and bringing in Freddie kitchens who doesn't have extensive experience running an NFL offense. So it'll be interesting to see how kitchens calls play. Days starting Sunday against the Kansas City Chiefs. And so the Cleveland Browns the first team to overhaul their coaching staff, but the real changes came Tuesday with a flurry of moves that made this one of the busiest trade deadline days in NFL history. Last year was very busy. Because at the last moment in the twenty four hours leading up to the deadline. We saw Jimmy Garoppolo traded from New England to San Francisco j Gye traded from Miami to Philadelphia Dwayne Brown from Houston to Seattle. Marcel Darius from buffalo to Jacksonville and Kelvin Benjamin going from Carolina to buffalo end the almost trade of AJ McCarron from Cincinnati to Cleveland, the got foiled when the Browns could not get the deal done in time by the four o'clock deadline by the four o'clock deadline this year. There was no such thing. Holding back a flurry of moves. We saw de. Ver- trade Pro Bowl wide receiver. Damaris Thomas and a seventh round pick to the Houston. Texans for a fourth and seventh round pick. As will the interesting part of that trade is that Thomas is first game with the Texans will come Sunday in Denver against the Broncos team. That just traded him. Thomas was the longest tenure Bronco and get the Broncos say goodbye to him because really they weren't going to keep his fourteen million dollars salary around next season in my mind. The most surprising move right before the deadline. Came win Detroit traded golden Tate to Philadelphia for a third round pick. So many teams had made so many inquiries to the lions about golden Tate. But they had resisted all overtures for him. But finally, they broke down and dealt Tate to the eagles who for the second straight year made a trade right at the deadline last year Gye this year Tate, as they look to try to keep up with the rest of the NFC east another team in the NFC making.
