"Us shortly. It's been a busy one. Let's get back to the calls and make up for lost time. Legend is up next. Good afternoon legend. Hey good to talk to you man. thank you man. I tell you what man college football that went crazy. And it's like the wild wild west. Bro is crazy man. I thought it was going crazy when we had this free agency going. All which is what the transfer portal is. And then i really thought i said man is really well while now because not only does alabama may millionaires. The nfl draft hail millionaires. Just a commitment. Now you know what i'm saying l. alabama. You will be megan air air for you. Give everybody union the nfl draft. I mean come on man and you alabama is the place man. come on. it's crazy paul. It's like the wild wild west man. Have you ever seen any. Did you ever think you will see what you're saying this year. No no And by the way. Be careful about arch manning There's a there's a he. He's very fond of the guy who was the offensive coordinator last year at alabama. Well we know texas you know. I don't have a problem with texas coming into the league Really don't and here's the reason. I know you don't have a problem with him coming into the league because sam bases crazy. Oh yeah and that means great collars for bob i. I am so glad to be a part of this journey because the opportunity to hear texas callers call in and then have almost every other fan base calling to attack them is going to be brilliant for us. Yeah i heard somebody say earlier and earlier show. That haven't texas in your league is like being married to a stripper. Said it's a lot of fun. Count drama and a lot of baggage. They a comers paul. How's married to a stripper. Fine line when it goes from from a thrill to how come we're out of advil. Yeah absolutely when you buy your what the hell have. I got so into and sec.

Texas comes to the sec. It'll be a very short time. They will be the second third best team and the southeastern conference ball. It won't take them long at all. This is devastating for lsu for tetteh now for me because davis the third and fourth best teams in the conference to fifth and sixth best teams in the conference. And that's a big difference.

"Eastern on espn. That they're going to be more meaningful than ever. I think the two thousand twelve at championship game or the. Oh eight or nine. Those are gonna talk to top in terms of meaning. But i do think the solution they came up with was was again another elegant one Where you say you can't get a by. You can't be one of those top four unless you're a conference champion so you know if you're sitting there at number three in the rankings. Going into the conference championship game. And you're pretty sure even if you lose you're gonna make the playoffs you're still not gonna take your foot off the pedal because you need to win to get that by and if you lose too badly you might just lose the by end the home game you would have had otherwise so you you gotta be pretty careful and i think that that makes it pretty tough and will say i forgot to say this all the other thing. That's interesting about the highest ranked. Fix conference champs. Is it takes away. The possibility of let's say you had a five loss. Division winner runs a really fluky upset in the conference championship game. That team still not making the playoffs. Now and i think that's one thing people kinda worried about. Maybe they found a way to basically eliminated a really good point talking to stapled any. We spent so much time over over the course of the season. The seasons speculating about coaches and their futures. It would seem on surface that this is going to be a boom for coaches. Getting to that playoff is so valuable. But we don't know because it's still it's still down the road but it's not quite as valuable as it was though is it. Follows goalposts move. That's how it works. I mean i had a coach suggests the twenty four team. Playoff to me. And i was like. I know why you're saying this because you think you make the playoffs. You keep your job but that only works for like a year. Like if you're if you're nick sabin right now. Making the fourteen playoff isn't enough. You have to win it every once in a while and he does but it. The expectation's always adjust. They're always fluid so just making the playoffs won't be good enough at certain places alabama ohio state close in just making the playoffs. We'll be the bare minimum. You can do you have to. You'll have to do more but there'll be other places where yes making the playoff. Every few years is exactly what you need to do. wisconsin i think would be a good example of that iowa was these good example of that In the sec. I think auburn's a good example of that They'll auburn makes it a couple of years in a row all of a sudden. It's better make it every year. Funny how that works at auburn came out of my mouth probably a bad. So so let's nick sabin. It seems like that's a requirement on this program. He gets the contract extension and unlike the two of us if we got a contract extension be celebrating right now with champagne savings just like okay. Wow that's a big deal but it was a big deal because of his age. And and i'm curious how that decision plays into the playoff decision. Because here's a guy that was there anyway every year but one. What do you think he's thinking right now about what we are talking about. This thing goes two weeks longer. It's going to be really hard to get back to recruiting and waste so much time. That he he all. He's doing because he's got. He's got the eighteen months calendar. Which i think. That's the the the set in stone. But he's probably got a preliminary ninety four months calendar like he's he's already trying to decide how much time he's going to have to devote to recruiting while still practicing for a third round playoff game and you know the the recruiting calendar which has already been criticized by some who are in those bowl games. I mean now. I mean i if unless something changes air india know. We're talking about that. What that wednesday Before christmas in december. I mean that's going to be leading right into or right out of some of these games isn't it. It's gonna be zoo. Fortunately all recruiting happens in june. At least you're right. You're absolutely right about that. Maybe just maybe just sees it change it after this and just say just do it all in june and then worry about everything else the rest of the year because that seems to be how it's going right now. I think recruiting is going to end up being like a bitcoin game. Where you just you make. Bids on on on crypto anyway. What a fantastic conversation When you were certainly banging the drum loudly for this and it turns out. You're pretty pricey must have been on that committee. I.

"I'm going to weigh in for the last time on college football expansion paul you know since the inception of the playoffs i mean. What's it been six years. There's been twelve first round game. Three of those games have been competitive. All the others blowouts. So what's a one vs. Well game going to look like or two verses eleven game gonna look like i wanna watch competitive football and it's just a it's just a fact alive that there are a chosen few very few amount of teams in the country that are capable of winning a national championship. You know this is not the. Ncaa tournament were a team. That has you know team that you've never heard of can get too good players and make a run. This is football. It's a completely different animal. So these i mean whoever's pushing this narrative of the little guys the little guy has no shop. All i mean and that's just a that's just the facts of life. What are you in. Eighty looked at it from a fanatic football fans standpoint which is fine. That's what we all are. But that's not re- that's not being realistic and the ball or the ball system is going to be devastated. Yeah they'll be. Yeah people watch the games and they may be more than an nba game. But that's not really saying anything on a random night. There's a lot of money. Invested in these games sponsorship wise community wise and. I have a hard time believing a lot of people are going to go to these games. Number one travel to these games number one and watch them because they're they're really not that watchable now and if you don't have if you're not gambling on on on the one of these early bowl games you probably have something better to do on a pre-christmas night then then invest for hours in the whatever bowl the only way i can think of to make it fair and i don't even know if it's i mean i don't think it's i'm not for but i mean you know how much alabama spins annual on football right. North of seventy million dollars followed. You think that. I mean it's not all and they say okay. You're the greatest in in terms of getting everyone invested from the group of five. I don't i don't buy that either Yeah i mean. Do you think i mean if you're a liberty fan or or coastal fan. You're you're excited. But you're not. You're not beating your chest about beating. Clemson are alabama the end of the year. Now because i mean a school with a ten million dollar.

"The second half the program is under. We've had a busy week. It's only wednesday. We're at the mid point of the week literally and we heard bill hancock during the break. They're coming with us on monday. Talking about possible. Expansion heard nick sabin yesterday. Not in favor of it. Kirby smart today who is and now the man this next guest. Maybe the most important one. We've had all week. Because he and his colleagues stewart mandel reporting today at the athletic that expansion could be here sooner than you think or than everybody says. Who is that man making all this news. He is andy staples joining us. Right now andy thank you and where are we right now on your reporting. I'm i'm starting to get pretty fired up. This may be close. What's going on. I was laughing listening to the handcock close because he you have to kind of parse bill hancock he said. I told her reported the other day that there won't be a new format this year and there won't be a new format next year. Well he didn't say anything about the following year and interestingly enough the following years the start of a new rotation for the semi-final bowl. So i mean if i was going to rip up a contract in maybe start new. That might be an appropriate time to do it. And that seems to be what you and stewart portending today so based on many people you talk to. How did you come to the conclusion of the your article today. Well it's interesting. Because i i'd gotten a text a few months ago from an athletic director. Who said now bear with me. Twelve teams and then and then gave me kind of lay out of how that would work. And i like. That's too many there. Nobody's gonna go for that. And then when i saw that thing in the release the other day when when the press release for the the college football playoff said they're looking at six and eight and ten and twelve and sixteen was like. Oh my gosh. That person wasn't saying this is what i want. They were just they. Were trying to tip me off. And i think that's the more people we talk to you the more sense we got that it's not just oh if they expand it's going to go to eight. It's they really wanna look at the different possibilities in guarantee that it goes twelve and sixteen still feels really big to me. But they're going to talk about all of them because this and it's a shame. I feel like we've got some stockholm syndrome from the previous hundred years of college. Football were change happened at a glacial pace and nobody ever wanted to rock the boat. These guys are looking at it like okay. We did this system in two thousand fourteen. Everybody already hates it. If we're going to change it. Did we not be back doing it again. In seven years. Let's do something that will have some legs. So i think that's what they're looking at is can they come up with a format that everybody isn't gonna scrap in five years so andy assuming the twelve is the number and that seems to be what some people think. How does that work well. It's well would work like this. You'd have you know an opening round of games so you you'd have twelve play five and eleven place six and and ten place seven and eight plays nine and the higher seeded team would be at home and then that would feed into the group of teams that have buys. It'd be very similar. The nfl playoffs last bunch of years before they added that the teams this past year. And so you'd have your team sitting there with buys and those teams would feed in and then they play in the fourteenth buys would also be hosting at home and then. I don't know what happens at the semifinals. I think the plan would still be play them at bowls and then play a neutral site championship game. If it were up to me. I would play on campus through the semifinals and the national championship. Game would be the rose bowl. Because that's the only only about he actually cares about. So you make the game in pasadena. The national championship game pasadena becomes football's omaha and you just call rosal because people love playing the rose bowl and then the other balls. Well they deal with it. Yeah but then the big ten in the pack twelve wouldn't that four o'clock start on new year's day they they probably turned down just to keep keep it where they are when you think. I don't know that they're in a position to do that. Plus they're the ones that need more spots more than any other power five league. I mean the the the big twelve does too but i policy the you know one of the clips from bill was saying you know. They started talking about this while ago. They actually started talking about this too. After the two thousand eighteen season remember what happened with the rankings at the end of that year. Remember how georgia was above ohio state. We'd spent the entire previous night one banging on kirby smart for putting justin fields in for the for the fake punt but to saying oh. It's it's either. Ohio state or oklahoma in that final spot but or maybe it was ohio state or notre dame. I'm i'm blanking on the year. I think it was a high notre dame but the fact of the matter is georgia ended up being ahead of ohio state and the people in the big ten. Were like whoa that. That's so definitely would have been left out no matter what. And and that's the part where they realize something's up here. As far as the pac twelve goes. They should have been pushing for this years ago. larry scott kind of did it too little too late. But that's something they should have done because think about how we feel about the pac twelve. You know as soon as they look like in two thousand and nineteen organ loses to auburn and week. One up your outdone. That goes over not has the playoff. You can't can't have that you can't tell everybody west of the rockies. You're season's done you're playing for nothing now. It's bad business so they're trying to figure out a way to get everybody more involved and if you have twelve you're getting a lot of people involved now it's it does change things the regular season. It does take away somewhat of a sense of urgency. But i i would argue that it creates more meaningful game at the end of the season for more teams because they are potentially in the playoff it also turns some conference championship games..

"I wanna talk about the super league. Right to the super league takes over Soccer and for forty eight hours eight hours and now it's gone. It's a thing of the past. It was a nice wispy thing. It's like at the end of forrest. Gump it's a little feather. They just flies up and just goes away and then the super league is gone forever but it did cancer. The imagination is a pretty much fans of every other sport who came up with their own superleague for their sport. Now this happened a lot in college football as the lazy among us decided to just do a super league not me. I have the super. Oh kaley coming out. But so the super league proposed by andy staples he has. Let's see fifteen teams only team all right. Well there was only twelve. Or i think there's only twelve in the super league.

"Some unexpected teams in the sec. We know the favorites We've already identified. Georgia clearly alabama. Lsu and am. I mean is there. Somebody and i'm not saying to win at all but is there somebody that could maybe really surprised or or beat expectations. Well we've mentioned florida. And i'm really curious with the offense looks like with emory jones running it. They switched to a very pass. The offense and you go through. Dan mullins history. He's he's always been more of a run heavy type coach but he kind of goes with what works and so. I'm interested to see what they do with offense. It probably is going to be a little better on the ground because the sublime should be a little bit better. We'll see when damarcus bowman the the transfer from clemson if he can charge up that running game but i think they will look different but could still be pretty good the other team out of the west that i wanna see and i want to see every game. They play zone miss. I i feel like they're going to be potentially could win. Every game they play or they could have just the nine interception meltdown but they are going to be probably the most fun team to watch and i. I really enjoy watching matt corral. I was talking on my podcast. We're talking about guys that can really insert themselves into the conversation for the nfl draft next year. And there's not a lot of quarterbacks that that we're looking at his. Oh this guy's a first rounder. I wanna see. What matt corral does this year. I wanna see how much improves because his arms great. He's athletic enough to keep plays alive. He's really fun to watch. Maybe he's that guy. And i just feel like every game that will miss plays is going to be appointment television as you are a andy. Thank you for being here. We will tune over on. Acc on saturday. Always great to talk to Andy staples of the athletes. And we are going to head to the break and get your phone calls growing here in a moment. Eight five two four two seven. Two eight five stick around. You're listening to the paul finebaum show podcast baseball friday night. A goodwin only the number two and three teams in the country. Arkansas and ole miss seven pm shannon is up next in florida. Good afternoon. i'm well thank you. I had two questions for you. one is. Do you see alabama winning another national championship. Ville entirely possible. Yes and the next one is what what is happening to. Charles town Charles was still around. He called us Maybe three or four months ago. And i asked him why he was sir Such a sporadic caller he didn't really understand what sporadic man he never gave a good answer. Yeah him and so on. I just wonder if he's still alive. Yeah i mean we will tell you when charles passes on that would be a reason to to lower the flags. Thank you for the call appreciate it. Let's check in with kevin who is in chicago. Hello kevin how you doing. Well thank you. I've got my tickets for the fog game down at mizzou and we're playing a pretty good an mtm. I think it'll be interesting to see about non think but I don't know. I just kinda curious as your thoughts. How this This ui drink woods. you know. Second year season pans out from his. Because i think You know a lot of hype and columbia saint louis and you know i think the seasoning the fans in the stands. We're gonna really see what this tiger team is capable of i agree. I don't think it's hype. I think it's legitimate when you consider what he did in one year and quite frankly could've been better. They had a lot of issues. A lot of games moved around. I think he has a tremendous staff and especially with the defense is going to get a lot better and and i think missouri is one of those breakout teams. That could you know. Maybe not win the champ. Maybe win the division but maybe wreck. Somebody else's hopes. I agree. I think Team like florida georgia. Missouri has played well Definitely certain seasons when they're played well They've done that. I think and You know we won the couple of times. It's pretty crazy to see this program Kind of progress away. We have and i think this year is going to be a step in the right direction. Well great to hear from you. Thank you very much for the call is up next. Hey can hey oh.

"Things too seriously. That's all. I'm trying to tell you and i'll i'll i'll get out of the way and and start answering questions you tell your friends at the. Tell your friends at the sec network. If we're tied stick with us because that's the best overtime they've ever seen in our lives because we're definitely on our they will stick around. This is a bad way. And let's let's talk about the the world of college football for a second and and you know because you you're florida guide. The georgia fans are calling up. And they're about to win another national championship in the spring. What do you have to say about the dogs chances this year. I think this is a good chance for them. Things set up pretty well if you look at the schedule because the west is going to be a bloodbath but they avoid alabama texas and lsu. And i know people say don't lsu wondering good. Last year i think issues do for pretty big bounceback and the fact that florida has to play. lsu and alabama. I think makes the road pretty. Tough for the gator. So in georgia in terms of just how things set up for them. It's pretty nice and also look the fact that they feel comfortable with quarterback jay daniels. They bring back a lot of talent. I i do think they should feel pretty good about their chances. Now if things don't work out the way they want this year which and i'm not saying win the title but be competitive win the east. Either win the sec. Were be darn close to it. Then they should get mad but as long as they're doing that. I think i think they're fine. You know. the florida fans are getting over. George because florida beat them last year. It was a really good team is best florida team. Probably since two thousand nine. I don't know the florida's gonna be able to to replicate that this year. I think george is going to be quite a bit better so they have every opportunity here now. If they don't do that. Let's florida wins. The east florida beats them in jacksonville. Then they should start getting pretty mad they start saying okay. What are we. What are we doing here. But i really do. Think things set up pretty well for them. And i realized that's probably not the best way to look at it where you're just looking at the schedule and and the road but as roads go in the sec. That's about as easy as going to get because the road through the west for the teams. That wanna win. The west is really hard and florida's road is really hard so i think that's one of those deals where georgia should feel pretty good about it. You got the schedule up there. They play clemson obviously i. I don't even think they have to win that game to make the playoff but it'll be a great measuring stick for them and if they do win it. It's sort of catapults them into the season. If not alabama in the west then an umbrella here. And i know. I know that's a kind of a cop out but i i don't know which one of those winds up being better. I'm curious to see how the texas a&m quarterback race works out because you got hanes king who's kind of a dual threat type guy Skill set probably more similar to mine and the news. You've got zack. Auto throws you know he's got the cannon arm but i like what am has offensively just because there's some really versatile weapons and i'm talking about an ice myth and devante chain there these backs that can also be receivers and they're just very exciting and they're gonna be a tough a tough out there going to be tough to defend. Lsu look at all they bring back you know basically they. They got down to the studs before they went to gainesville last year. They go ahead win that game. So that tells you that the group coming back has a little little gumption. So they've got talent in that group and then it looks like they've corrected the mistakes they made in terms of hiring assistance last year. And if that's the case if this new group clicks you know jake pete's on offense it. It's a friend of joe brady. I realized that that that it's it's oversimplifying. But if he can run an offense that is similar to what. Joe brady ran. They've got options at quarterback. I think you know you got a few guys can planting miles. Brennan has proven it. You saw max johnson at the end of the season that that he could be pretty good so they have enough to play against anybody. And so i i think the west is gonna be really interesting because you look at what alabama losing obviously alabama's going to be really good no matter what especially like alabama's defensive line next year but it's going it feels like there's a better chance for the field this year than there did going into last year. Felt like alabama's gonna steamroll. Everyone last you andy field in baton rouge how concern. Should they be down there Fans should cycles. I wouldn't want to gauge your guest. The the administration about about the noise coming out of usa today the baton rouge paper. I there is a lot going on down there. Just get it fixed right. The they said it themselves when that hush blackwell report came out that they had some serious problems that they needed to address. Get it fixed. Don't like when someone who claims that they've been sexually assaulted can't get their own police report. You got a problem you know you. You need to fix that. And so that's really all they can do going forward. They've handled these situations pretty terribly and they've admitted that so get it fixed. Andy staples before you go. Let's talk about. Maybe some unexpected teams in the sec. We know the favorites We've already identified. Georgia clearly alabama. Lsu and am. I mean is there. Somebody and i'm not saying to win at all but is there somebody that could maybe really surprised or or beat expectations..

"Okay well. I going to tell you gotta put a little shot of crown royal peach and just week to you like sweet tea. I mean it really hits the spot but I talked to you about alabama basketball minute and I was a basketball coach. Official for thirty something years. So watching alabama basketball. We talked about before. All i'm telling ya teams that slow the ball down and have big men give alabama fit because they can't get out and run and teams that run that caught man and they don't get into their grew and we all know march is it comes to match up and i'm afraid of alabama gets in a match up situation with the team that big and i'm specially. I'm very impressed with michigan after. Watch them with their big I think those kind of teams are going to give alabama some problems. Hang up and let you listen and respond and you have a great week much finebaum. Thank you very much. I understand your concern in. Alabama is a little bit not a little. There are a lot unconventional. Anyway we'll get back to the calls for me. I want to go back to something that that andy staples said because we really haven't had much reaction to this. Yeah we had a guest and we've been fairly tied up. But i am really interested in the reaction to what he said about georgia. Being the best job in the sec. I think he said alabama was second and then lsu and you can mix it up after that florida auburn and texts am. He gave a lot of reasons why he thought georgia was the best job and he said to be the best job. You have to win a national championship. But i also can a lot of reasons. Why georgia has not and you know. Has it been. Mark had a team in two thousand and twelve that was eminently capable of winning the national championship. And then you had the disaster down toward the goal line is as they were attempting to come back after after turning the game around against alabama and having a chance to win that team would have beat notre dame and in two thousand and twelve for a in the orange bowl The team a couple of years ago. clearly was good enough to win. The national championship had alabama overtime. So it i. I didn't the only thing. I really objected to was. He was basically saying well. Alabama's nick sabin and barbari. Well you have to intelligence to to hire coaches like that. They also gene stallings who won a national championship in nineteen ninety-two. They've had they've had other close calls in the past they've had ray perkins in the eighties Had he stayed there he probably wouldn't wanna won a national championship. So i i'm not. I haven't really thought georgia verses alabama situation because alabama has won so many titles and yes. I mean we we. We tend to diminish the school. Because nick saban is the coach. There and nick sabin could win. Could win eight national championships. Slippery rock but the bottom line is alabama has a lot going for so We'll get back to the calls on that conversation and mark is up next. Hey mark go right ahead a paul. Thank you for taking my call No this staple sky is I don't know the slip slip at slippery rock. He spent his slipper hit his head You know what wins. championships are. players No coaching helps. Don't get me wrong but You know to finish one program alabama arguably the best program last at least what thirteen years. georgia is forgetful. I mean Until they do something you know you gotta do something to these mark. I'm not sure i wouldn't say. Lsu's a better job in some ways than georgia. I take a if i were a coach. I'm not. I'm a school administrator. But if i were a coach i take. Lsu right now over georgia you know. We could sit down. I've listened to you when you are in birmingham and i know that you've Always Look at things objectively but you know l. Lsu wow at night you could get the recruits here. It's a great place to live I've been to athens not much there. My opinion i think. Also you know. I know we're looking at sec teams. But places like austin texas would be great but But looking sec. I i don't think that's the lusa is the greatest place To live in my opinion They they got a great coach. Great program for me. Maybe florida gainesville. That's pretty good place to be. I will say this. We have to go into second. Because time and i appreciate your call and thanks for sharing it but paul bryant one said this school. The concerns him. The most in the sec. This is forty years ago forty five years ago when he thought they become a an absolute threat. I sat a couple of years ago. And in a book that i thought texas and that was to be concerned about now mathieu. Georgia's a wonderful place to live. I love air but is it..

"Welcome you back. It's great to have augie here jim. Ross it's a top of the next hour. His book is out in paperback a lot to talk to. Jr about your phone calls. Welcome now it's been a while since we've been able to go to them so if you want to chime back in eight five five two four two seven two eight five. We started the show an hour and a half ago with nate oats. The coach of a crimson tide signed a new deal. Just one the sec. On saturday night plays auburn tomorrow. We'll back we're back to the phones now and. Let's check in with tj arkansas. Hey tj off. We're doing well. Thank you for the call. I got two quick questions first. Question's gonna be. When is everybody going to arkansas. The respect you get a lot of analysts and a lot of riders. They're you know over the years and that arkansas shouldn't even be an sec. But you a number one rating baseball number clearly. Men's basketball thirteen women's basketball three and one in men and women's track sixteen softball seven. Two women talking fifteen in gymnastics atop cross country team. The other team. You're not really read in is in football and also what do you think about both muslim. And for esi coach of the year. we'll hang up and let you comment. Tj that there's no doubt. Arkansas is having a phenomenal year. The sec coach of the year is difficult. Why i think it's a real conundrum between muscleman and nato and i'm not sure i'm i know which way to go if i had to vote i don't i don't have to vote but just refund. There are incredibly strong arguments for both you know was picked to finish fifth or sixth. Sec one musclemen was picked to finish considerably farther down that and has made a run at alabama. So it really depends. I mean pick your poison you know who overachieved more or who has done the best coaching job. And it's a good conversation and will continue to have it here no losers. They're they're both. They're both outstanding. Let's continue With decay. Who's up next. Hey thank you good afternoon. I've got a question here. I just wonder what you thought about. Don't come out of auburn this year football. You'll hear much and i just want. I think it's gonna thanks I think we're still going to see a bonus or quarterback and i. I'm not expecting right year. I think there's been considerable leakage Especially on the offensive line. And i'm not one hundred percent. Sure how a new system is going to work. Schedule is extremely difficult and in addition to all the usual suspects which are plenty when you factor in lsu georgia and alabama. There was a road game at penn state. i think seven or eight wins is the absolute ceiling. I know that coaches have done well. There in the past during their first year one went undefeated in other one nearly won the national championship. But i do not see that happening this year. Although i like bryan bryan harrison a lot of really had a great time talking to him a couple of times here but he's got a lot to overcome. Thank you for the call. Really do appreciate it. Mike is up next in north carolina. Hey mike thanks good afternoon. Paul how you doing this afternoon. We are doing well. Question for you This transfer portal. I saw that air. Gilbert had backed out at lsu rights admitted the floor. And now he's back down to florida How does that process work. Do they lose their scholarship when they go into the portal. Or no. i think you have to get an offer know when you go into the pour toi a. Free pass back if you want it. And if they'll take you back sometimes they may not want to but i. I don't know all the details on gilbert. I know some told me when he made the decision to go down there. It was not a guarantee that he would be able to play there. There are there are some issues. And maybe maybe the issues were too much for him to overcome. No but i know. I know the talented. He that he possesses and somebody eventually is going to get a great player but that was. That was a big pickup for florida. And now it looks like they have let it go. We'll take bright mortar com. We have a lot to do on the program. A couple of major gas remaining. We've already had nato. We are coming right. Back to listening to paul finebaum show podcast. We welcome you back. It's great to be here We are Next next next week of course the year anniversary of the sports world shutting down to covert. And it's just so interesting. The juxtaposition of where we were then where we are today. The university of alabama announced this afternoon that they planned to return to traditional in person instruction for fall. I have a feeling that many others if not all will will follow suit. You may remember last week. We talked to ross bjork. He said we fully expect normalcy by the football season. And greg byrne has just said the same thing in a tweet. tha athletic director at alabama. We are moving forward with plans to have a full stadium in the fall So there again This is not a big surprise when you consider the journey that We've all been on but it is. It is tinged with a great deal of optimism in terms of where we are heading in terms of the next sequence of events on the calendar. Back to the calls. We go and Let's check in with trae. Who is up next. Hey trae good afternoon friend. You a great weekend. It was good. We finally broke the winner. The winner ice storm mode model yesterday. We felt like spring is here and and then today at all left agree with you. Paul in my little man came here. Have a big seventy inch. Tv to fifty five inch. Tv's on the side and one point. I had alabama basketball alabama softball and alabama baseball on at the same time and stayed my big man's recliner so you've got some sophistication there to be able to make all that work.

"A huge congratulations to devante smith who i have just been God i mean his accomplishments and then what he represents is coach saving his referred to them. You know in a basseterre program he. He really deserves everything that they're coming his way and wish nothing but fast for him but oh what a wonderful. What a wonderful interview with. Eli gold i. It brought me back to nineteen eighty eight my freshman year when he was more or less beginning his career You know the the spokesperson tied Along with kenny stabler And man i'll tell you that was some stylistic moments for me it was really well let me also saying you know. Some of you have heard me talk about this. He li- gold He he. I always joke that This will make the one of the most popular people in alabama unpopular. But he gave me my first radio job and it you know. Without without his tutoring i would never Gotten anywhere in this industry. But that was way back Win before he got the alabama you came to alabama for those who don't know his life story and we'll we'll have them on one day when we have some time. He was a hockey announced here. He he grew up in new york and he came to birmingham. I believe to do the the hockey team there. And then he became the the baseball announcer the minor league and then he just started doing everything college college teams and then ultimately the nascar. yeah he became. I mean for many many years. Eli was the voice of nascar and then but he's done everything. He's just a phenomenal broadcaster. Yeah no doubt and one other thing call real quick. I i just had a quick Just just a little bit of a comment for for. I'm an when he. He's been coming on here lately about his criticism of of alabama fans. And you know our our Demeanor coming into to Playoff scenarios over the years and in his is Kind of patronage sick pontificate. I just want to tell. Amanda cool it a little bit i understand. He's jealous. That offer news and in the mix but You know just just have so much of a sour grapes attitude and thank you again for taking my call. Is craig guitar tied. It was my pleasure. Thank you. We have a few minutes left in this hour. We appreciate you being here so many interesting guests from andy staples to gold more on the tennessee situation. Straight ahead and more of your phone calls right after this. You're listening to the paul finebaum show podcast and we welcome back here on thursday afternoon and Jerry is up next. Hey jerry welcome. Thank you appreciate your shows interesting. I have two questions for you as palmer sitting. Thank or jimmy per ours. Everything just speculation at this time. Other than what university said jerry. You're right they have not said anything. And the only comment today came from from the university itself which is usually the case involves nc double a. legislation. That was all i again. Thank you for the very chip. Thank you thank you very much appreciate that and again you know when i first started hearing store and couple of weeks i it seems inconceivable that we would be at this point but but after the hiring of mike glazier the other day and this official announcement today. His left literally. Everyone speculating on on what could be happening. Hey thank you for the call again. Let me check in with graham. Who was up next. Hey graham thank you and good afternoon how are you okay. Thanks a lot. we're doing great graham. How are you doing. I'm doing good. I'm here from atlanta. Just watching your show. And i was like. Why don't i call it. Wanted to talk about college. football playoff. Sure go ahead. So i was thinking about like how i mean. It's alabama and ohio state. But do you think ohio state should be in the playoffs and say only played seven games this season. Graham i do. I appreciate your your question. But but i don't see how that's any longer legitimate question. They beat clemson. They lost a clemson. I think it would be fair to say. Maybe they shouldn't have been in but That to me and to any reasonable person. I believe ended that conversation but thanks anyway. Let's check in with dani. Who is up next. Hey danny you're on the air. Go right ahead. Yes sir. Paul how you doing dave doing great right My questions is different from everybody. Else is what i want to ask you is. Do you think the playoff system should be a little bit more like division one aa dan. Oh division big time because you got teams like cincinnati. Whatever they went undefeated and they don't have a shot at getting this thing and these little kids. Should i chanced. well yes. And no. I mean you could conceivably come up with a group of five playoff but i don't think you want if you're cincinnati and you're trying to sell yourself as a major player which i think they have and have been successful. You don't want to be playing down in class and that's what you'd end up doing. You want to play the big boys and they play georgia the other day and played them extremely well so i don't. I don't think you're going to see that. And it's very complicated Remember the college. Football playoff is going to change sometime between probably in three to five years when the contract starts to run out they will very likely expanded and when they expanded to eight schools and i think they will not yet. But they will you'll then you'll get the five power five conferences you'll get to at large and then you'll get a group of five representatives so that will that will end this conversation. I'll tell you what if you remember. I if you will remember i thought if you remember back in nineteen eighty four day said the same thing young. Didn't he will. they did. And i've always felt that was a laughable national championship for those who don't remember back to then and i would imagine a lot of you don't but showed them little small accused shot. It did but but brigham young beat a michigan team which i was barely above. Five hundred in a ballgame to win the national championship. Everyone else just crashed and burned. And i'm glad they wanted you know a friend of mine was on that team and they have. They have tremendous just the same to see these little kids. You know any smaller car go undefeated and just play for nothing. Well i wouldn't say they play for nothing. I mean if you're cincinnati player you played in. I major bowl game last friday and you came down to one kick against georgia now realized georgia was the fourth best team in the sec. But you know. And i don't mean to come off crass here but if you can't be georgia or are you going to beat alabama which would have been the no so. I'm going to happen soon. But cincinnati say. It's just nice to know you know it's kind of like college basketball or would ever at least you got one shot at a college basketball is a little bit different but i appreciate your intent. Tommy is up next. Tommy go right ahead. Hi paul want to say a few things about jeremy pruitt. I'm an did a great job at florida state. He did a great job at georgia. Went to alabama when Curves smart got the job at jordan. He did a good job in alabama. But i just feel like he jumped the gun and a little early that tennessee job. I'm at coverage smart. He got the gold mine and it seems to me that jeremy brooke got the shaft. We'll tommy. I appreciate your call but i will tell you this. Germany does have a great reputation. You're one hundred percent correct as a coordinator. But i don't know how many places better than the university of tennessee. He was going to land as a head coach so he did take a job. That was not going to be easy. He was also paid millions of dollars to do it and has made the absolute least outta that opportunity. He'll he'll get a job back at alabama if he wants one as a coordinator but i can't imagine him ever getting opportunity like this again. We are heading to the break. Some of you will be leaving us because of the basketball those who remain. We'll hear more about jeremy. Pruitt future and the cfp. We hope you'll stick around. Thank you for listening to the paul finebaum. Show podcast the paul finebaum. Show airs weekdays on the sec network beginning at three eastern..

"In on monday night the national championship in college football. But there's always something else going on we'll talk about all of it with our next guest. He is andy staples From the athletic andy. Great to have you with us. And i will get to monday night in a minute. But a lot of us were jarred by the release out of knoxville. This morning that everything is on pause speculation running rampant and i realized this has been building but the idea that jeremy pruitt. Maybe a release before the month is out caught some people by surprise. What are you hearing on that subject. Tennessee beat writer. David abernathy athletic. He used the phrase hiring freeze today. People are like wait. They're hiring freeze what they're already get ahead of ourselves but the thing is going on. I mean when when you heard that this investigation was going on and the news remember was leaked right as the texas game. Starting you knew something was up you know. They're they're investing and it always struck me as a way to get out of. Jeremy pruitt's buyout if they can so will they find enough stuff to fire him without paying him or they find enough stuff to say. Hey let's negotiate this thing down and you'll leave and we won't say anything and that'll be that. But you look at the the attorneys. They'd hired michael blazer. Who's been doing this for years remember. He's mike's lives former law partner. They essentially invented the idea of the law. Firm that defends schools against aa. He's the one who was hired but he was hired by the university side. Not athletic department. So that tells me that they are doing this to clear the decks. If they need to. Now i don't know what that means for phillip fulmer but it seems like he's been left in the loop on this so that's probably a good sign for him but i don't think it's a real good sign for jeremy pruitt and i mean at this point paul if you're freezing hiring if you're saying you can't fill these open assistant positions. I don't know how you bring him back. You're doing damage every day that they can't keep moving forward so you better have a plan here. Yeah and nobody really knows what that plan is. And you mentioned phillip. Fulmer a yes. He hired jeremy pruitt under the worst possible circumstances because of his predecessor but he also gave him an extension under pretty good circumstances. Yes that is the thing that i think that they're probably regretting. The most right now is they had that winning streak in last season they give them an extension. Now they're on the hook for millions of dollars and this is something that that's kind of rampant across college football these eighties and university presidents and people get talked into doing these extensions when they don't need to. Where was jeremy. Pruitt gonna go. Why did you have to give him more money or more years. And he actually turned down the more money part of it because of the pandemic but where was he got to go if you didn't give them the extension that's that's the part i keep asking eight as a native. Rarely have an answer for that. Any one more question on that and we'll move on to the news of the day and that's the national championship game that we are going to have game on monday night. But you mentioned freeze conundrum. And i know that it's a message. Boards and the twitter verse in. Knoxville is in love with you freeze and we. We know why he's a great coach. But if you fire coach for 'cause can you bring in one who also fired for four causes knows why. Ncwa violations had a lot to do with it. Yeah and so the other stuff and the other stuff bad too but right. It's the optics of the question. Tennessee has to ask is what do you. What do you want out of this. Do you want to get out from under journey. Pruitt and then hire someone who knows gonna win because how many people are out there that you know you could hire tennessee. Who will win at tennessee because you freezes had a worse job in the sec tennessee and has won there so there's a few very few people who can match that in terms of a resume line and there's very few people can come in and say i'd be nick sabin on the field before you had that so i it will look terrible if that happens optically but guess what. What's the goal here. The goal is probably to win football game. So i realize they may they may say we. We're getting rid of jeremy. Because of all this stuff that happened or hiring freeze and you know what if he wins. No one's gonna boo about it at tennessee which is all it matters. You know that we will have people outside tennessee saying well. How could you do that. Well inside your fans and your donors and your people are the people whose opinions count. You're gonna be happy if he's winning. So i i think that would make sense though it would be. You'd have to have some gymnastics. And i would hope you'd have just an honest press conference. How the arms like we're hiring him can win here. That's it infrastructures so questions. We're adding auburn higher. Bruce pearl who was fired for. Ncwa reasons from tennessee got slammed by by the and he went to the final four. Nothing terrible has happened after that. Has it precisely. I mean there. The whole fbi investigation. But you know if you have them that was important. One assistant got got roped into a form not referral final four. So that's two point. And i think if you ask tennessee spans would you want pro back. Yes they would. So i mean. I know they like rick barnes now but yes. They would want bruce throw back if they'd had him in those intervening years. So yeah listen all that stuff the optics and the complaints and all that that stuff other people worry about. If if you're at the school worry about what's your constituents want. Mostly i'd let me get to all constituents want and that is a football game monday night. Looks like we're going to get it. Justin field said he'll be fine. What are you what are you know what do you think none of us really know. But his presence and his health is critical to ohio. State's chances was throwing dimes right after he got hit in the ribs. So i i think if you said a few days to recover. He's finally all right. I'm so excited for this game. Paul because you know. I think about when they played in the first college football playoff they played that sugar bowl semi final. And we assumed that we get alabama ohio state year after year after year after year. Instead we got alabama clemson year after year and we got some great games in that series. But this is what we wanted to see. I mean these are the programs that produce the most out. I got story coming out in the athletic tomorrow. About just how much talent. They bruce crazy these. These teams are one. Two in draft picks produce over the last five drafts. they're one and two and first rounders produced over the last five drafts. This is the matchup athlete for athlete. That we want and so. I hope it becomes off on monday night. And everybody's as healthy as they can be. I wanna see these teams as close to full strength humanly possible. We don't know very much but we do believe. There are issues at ohio state in addition to justin fields. Are we going to know what's going on there before monday night. We're probably not going to know until a few minutes before the game when when they released their availability and you know they have had important players out pretty much every game. They played this season. So you know. It's there's a chance they're going to be important players out. this time. They had their left guard. Harry miller was out of the sugar bowl and zack. Harrison is one of the rotation guys defensive line without. They had twenty guys out for the michigan state game. They had a bunch of guys out including chris alavi their best receiver for the big ten championship. So you know they. They've been able to adapt to this. But i sure hope for the sake of this game that it is not a big list..

"I guess and we were pretty much building a little bit of momentum and vessel that we won't down here in south carolina but As you know but it just it really disheartening. I guess to say that. I mean i i mean. I understand capitalism in college football. It is what it is. But it's you know It was pretty much given the job that he was given the job. I think it and they didn't but now we have no offense of nor defensive coordinator and we're pretty much in the dumpster fire. Yeah so yeah incorrectly. So these guys went to went to auburn. Today's so bobo bobo. Most confusing to me because everyone knows brian. Harsh is his own coordinator. so to me that when you go in there with a guy who's known for his offensive play calling It's it's a. It's a questionable decision the marquette last year.

But the university of tennessee came out today and said everything is on hold with hiring with extensions and a boycott meyer. Knoxville news sentinel correspondent for tennessee indicated.

Patriots Knocked Out of Playoff Race for First Time Since 2008

"Patriots who i said would not make the playoffs are not making the playoffs here. Is bill belichick with this loss. You guys were eliminated from playoff contention first time since a wave. Just wondering your reaction to that does that. We win deserve to win tonight. So yeah pretty much. So and i started look at cam. Newton's numbers. Because if i'm new england do i play jarrett stidham the last two games. Do i want to see what i have do. They know what they have do. I just ride this out. And have cam newton as my starting quarterback in his last seventeen starts so this goes back two years cam. Newton has thrown. in seventeen games. Five touchdown passes twelve interceptions. He is had almost five hundred throws over those seventeen games. Peter king points out in his column today. Aaron rodgers has had four hundred seventy seven pass attempts through the same time period. He's thrown forty touchdowns cams thrown five. And i know coming back from arthroscopic surgery on his rotator cuff and for those of us who've had rotator cuff surgery just coming back for a normal life. Not trying to fit a football into a small window is really difficult. And i don't think cam has come all the way back from kovin that but cam. We're not going to see cam twenty fifteen. Never gonna come close to. That can still be a quarterback who starts in the nfl. Is he a quarterback who is going to be a backup quarterback. And i think that's going to be the next step to decide what happens with the patriots. What direction they go in to the go after quarterback do they keep cam. Do give him more. Money is jarrett stidham as that experience experiment over as

"Who's winning the heisman. The sec championship game is going to be a very highly watched a fair among voters. Because you got you got mac jones and kyle trask and obviously both of them have insane talent around them. i think. That's you know people say well. We'll trevor lawrence is. Is the best player. Well yes if thirty two. Nfl gm's voted for the heisman. Trevor lawrence would win landslide. But that's not how these things usually work and so you have to say well as joe's doing this because he's great or because of dante smith is qled. Trask doing this. Because he's great. Because of kyle pits. I think that game. We'll probably decided which quarterback plays better. If if one quarterback just has a disaster game is probably the other guy or if they just have a dual for the ages. I think the one who comes out on top probably winds up winning it by the way. How's the pac twelve dude. They're still playing. They put some sunday football. I watched i watched. Usc washington state on sunday. It was great. I thought it was a rear. I swear to god. I flipped through. And i go. Oh let me watch a little bit of this game from set. Wait oh no. This is actually oh okay. I was tapped me on the shoulder. And say we're playing football on sunday. Of course you are well. It's interesting because the pack twelve may have bungled this all worse than the big ten because really until the big ten said they're playing in the pac twelve. Almost it's almost. They hadn't even thought of the possibility trying to play this season. And so it doesn't look good. They're hardly getting any games. And but at least they've been flexible. That's that's the one thing they have tried to be very flexible They created a cow washington game on two days notice and played that on a sunday. And if you're the big ten you should look at that and say well we could probably figure out a solution to this ohio state as you and get them another game if we just a little creative like edmund but the big ten is not that the aircraft carrier does not turn around very well. Andy great to talk to you and we'll be reading. We'll be watching. Thank you thanks. Sandy staples covers college football for the athletic and host of the andy staples show podcast..

"Call. Thank you. I'll miss the first half of the show and the question I wanted to ask you maybe it's already been hashed out. Even though I don't think it has because just listed all he and a little bit of Andy Staples. What is your opinion of what happened in the end of the Arkansas? I. Think. It looked like the wrong call but Andy Staples made the most Presi and point yet or the most. Important point yet, I should say. Once the whistle gets blown doesn't matter and that was the issue with the play. The whistle was blown. So it shouldn't have been blown. Okay. It that was the mistake. The officials ultimately blew it. Arkansas should have won the game they blew the whistle therefore anything happens after that doesn't matter if you follow me. Well I mean follow that but I mean what? If Maj. Harris got the fall? Through the line he's headed down to the end zone but somebody is blowing inadvertently missile. There's a play come back scrimmage. I am not going to be a rules official because I don't study that stuff very closely, but I think what's the official wants the once the whistle blows plays over. Okay, well, I mean I understand that normally. I mean in a perfect world had had if you could go back and insert the mistakes that were made on the Field Arkansas wins it's not even debatable. and. The SEC's explanation was I would have been happier if the SEC just said, you know we blew it the guy shouldn't have blown the whistle in Arkansas share to one game. I don't know I've never understood why officials are not transparent their their their credibility goes up when you tell the truth and it's not going to matter you apologize say you're sorry it's still a win. But for some reason, they issued a a manifesto that. Left me bleary eyed? Well. Exactly. That's what bothered me so bad because usually to me, the SEC is transparent but this one I mean, it's like you came home from ten day trip and you were gone away. You open the refrigerator and something starting was stinking this one stock. Yeah. I agree and you know but. The. Problem is decision is final. It's over and I that's that's as good as I can come up with I. Don't know what else to say air up next in Missouri Hello Erin, you're you're on the air go right ahead. Hey, how you doing ball we're doing well, thank you. So same thing that he's talking about you know. First of all, I've tried to call like three hundred times. It's horrible how angry I am about this game who sure right away that this game ended was absolutely ridiculous and As soon as the play happened as soon as he spiked the ball, you see in Auburn running back going for the ball as long as well as Joe. Foucher. So it's like if both these players are going for the ball, the runningback automatically assumes that it's it's a fumble and so it's kind of ridiculous that. The, refs decided to call the play dead and even so it's continuation and so. I think they completely screwed the pooch on this one and they just need to get.
