"Can you throw a goal. Line fade and i understand the frustration there on fourth down as they were getting ready to potentially tie the game and i would just tell everybody man. Hey hindsight's twenty twenty actually liked the play call. It was poorly executed. They didn't get the mesh or the rub that they were looking for. And everyone will be going back on the all twenty two and they'll see take big little angle route on the left hand side. That's wide open and say this is where it should have gone. I understand all that. Ultimately the call wasn't what i had a problem with. It was the throw the throw at three yards out of bounce and you have to at least give the wide receiver chance when you're in a red zone in a gotta have it situation even if it's intercepted who cares. It's a fourth down play and to throw it out of bounds. It's like throwing a hail marietta balance. It's absolutely inexcusable. So back to the original point. How did auburn look. I thought there was a lot to be proud of. I thought bo knicks did some good things but there were also a lot of things. I'd like to correct especially on throws downfield. And i would like to see them can really commit to getting the ball to be more than they did. Even on saturday. I know he had twenty three carries any game that he has less than thirty. I think is a mistake. So i think that there's some things that they'll learn from this but for intents and purposes. I thought it was a pretty solid performance on the road against a team. That's slightly better than them at this point finally finally because auburn schedule is brutal greg for for for measuring stick for those of us at home. Where would penn state rank. Right now in your estimation in the sec. I love the. You're asking me this question. I love you. Paul and i know what you're doing and i will give you the answer that you desire right now. I would have penn state finishing fourth in the sec west and that would say waiting on say what their number sixteen in the country understandably so on a neutral site. I would pick alabama ahead of them. I would pick at this point ole miss ahead of them and then i think it would be a toss up between am and penn state and on home field. People say well. Anna lost their quarterback. Did you see him against colorado. Yeah i did. But i also acknowledge the challenge of having to go and play at altitude and i also know the challenge as a backup quarterback coming off the bench being thrust into a game plan. That's built to feature quarterback run when you're not a runner and that's exactly what that cal zodda had to do. Two weeks ago on the road at the buffalo. He played better last week. I think there's room for growth. And i think if you look at an ems roster anna's defensive line in particular and how they are essentially carrying the team right now i would pick am on a neutral site against penn state so a long way of answering your question dirty simply. I would have penn state. No better than fourth in the sec west. And that's in the sec west. I i i've already asked question. We need to get you out of here but It's pretty obvious on the on the sec. There couple pretty good teams as well how it had them third in the sec east. And i think the game against florida would be pretty compelling. But i like florida just a little bit better than nittany. Lions at this point so forth. I'll go one more. No your rhode scholar almost one fourth in the east and third in. That's putting them really close to the middle of the of the sec. Is that fair. i don't want to put words in your mouth i think. Am i being cross examined. Paul i feel like at some point. I need to plead the fifth. Because i know deadline. Twitter's coming after me as we speak you are. I would have them in the middle. I would have them in the middle of the pack right now in the still think they have some things you need to clean up on the deep it's of side and i do think however with how they match up against some of the teams in the big ten they're in a really good position to potentially without ohio state's plan. I wouldn't be shocked to see penn state in the driver's seat in the big ten east but they need to be careful of michigan state michigan state team. I saw that is excellent. The best team. I've seen so far this year in person And i've only seen sixteen. So it's that many michigan state's for real. And i think ohio state and michigan will get things going in the right direction. Michigan's looked good so far so it's a wide open race in the east but penn state's got a real chance. I just don't like the match if they would have against some of the elite teams superleague talent that they would see in the sec. West and east at this point greg mcelroy Thank you very much for An extended conversation and some trickery. It appreciate it. We'll take a break. Greg mccoy fourth in the east in the west third in the east penn state fans. We are listening to the paul finebaum. Show podcast do owner. Read your home share. You and i bet it can be hard work.

"Great quarterback great pre snap. But he hasn't really been in a really adverse environment yet so that has to be a weapon because it will rally you a little bit as a quarterback and that has to be. Some florida leans into everyone talks about pumping and noise trying to simulate. Can you simulate this you can simulate. The noise and i was at an alabama practice last week where it was super loud. I mean it was annoyingly loud. i couldn't even have a conversation with cole cubelic standing next to me. But here's a thing. Noise and pressure are two different things. You can have noise at practice but it is absent of the pressure that a big moment brings here in the swamp. So florida has to simulate that noise but also they as a defense and as a team have to put pressure on bryce young so that that rattles him in some way right. It's not just noise. Noise by itself is nothing players deal with that all the time. it's all hand signals. It's not a big deal. The pressure that this defense and todd grantham puts on brace young has to accompany the noise. We spent all the time so far talking about this game. I want to zip through a couple of other games. Quickly We you can't. You can't simulate the white out either. What's auburn facing as they get off the bus and under that field tomorrow now. I mean it's it's a crazy environment and james franklin look he's really good at preparing his teams for the moment. You can have a lot of questions about how they've performed certain but he'll get his players ready and he'll have that environment ready. All eyes are going to be on bo knicks but would argue that. All the pressure is on mike. Bobo in a good way. Right because bo knicks has been bad on the road twelve of his thirteen career interceptions on the road. So mike bobo needs to make sure that bo knicks doesn't feel like he needs a throw on a superman cape to win this game. This game plan has to be centered around tank bixby muddy up this game. Make this a physical dirty football game. Make sure that bo knicks knows. I don't have to make these every crazy. Throw every pass. Play doesn't have to be a touchdown. He needs to play within the system in an order to do that. Mike bo was gonna make him comfortable. He's gotta had preached that all week and practice. He's gotta make sure that tank. Bixby is the focal point. Early to set the tone because otherwise bo knicks is going to get into a situation where he's going to make mistakes and if you make mistakes and turn the ball over there. That's how auburn loses game in athens. Carolina fans excited. They haven't been in a position like this in a while. They know they won their two years ago. What do they have to do to make this interesting tomorrow. Night is horn. Plan is miserable. Mclamb plan i think they're missing a few guys that really helped the last time they won that football game. Look this team and shane. Beamer has to just get a competitive fire outta this team because georgia's a much better football team georgia's gonna win this football game. Georgia has a lot of questions. South carolina needs to learn how to compete in these moments raised their level of play. Fine leadership find fire. But if i'm georgia can can i like can the real georgia offense stand up. Because i don't know who they are. And i don't frankly. I don't care stem bennett. I don't care if it's carson back. I don't care if it's jt daniels. I do not care. Show me who you're going to be against arkansas. Show me who. You're going to be against auburn. Show me who you're going to be at the end of the year because you can't just figure that out. Then are you gonna be a downhill play action based around your strength of the running backs. Are you going to be spread team when jt's healthy and back in the game. I don't know pick one because your defense is going to take you all the way but that offense is going to be what makes break you and right now i just i look at it and i go their best players. A tight end from napa california. He's a great player. But you got to focus on some of the other talent you have around. You build the offense to do so jordan rogers. Quite an interesting analysis. We'll see more jordan tomorrow morning on. Sec nation jordan. Thanks great stuff. We are back to gainesville in a moment. Steve spurrier an hour away. A lot of guests will be dropping by as we continue right here. You're listening to the paul finebaum. Show podcast steve spurrier.

"bo knicks" Discussed on Pushing the Odds with Matt Perrault
"And i'm not saying that penn state's gonna have matchup any athletic ability or mismatch with athletes over a team like auburn. I'm not gonna say that but we don't know much about offered okay. We don't know much about what this team was in. This team hasn't been good lately. Why they made a head coaching change so on the road. I know the number is number one offense in the country. They played two tomato cans at home. Like i don't know really about this team so this is a big test again. I m as as as sec as it comes in terms of biases. But i think this penn state team is going to be able to win and cover this game. And i think the environment is going to be incredible. Not saying auburn's gonna lose because the environment. I think penn state skill players are good enough to make enough. Plays and their defense is good enough to stop the run. Make it go to bow. Knicks and. I'm sorry. I'm expecting bo knicks to throw picks i mean all of a sudden we all love. Bonex like what all of us on this guy's like. Yeah go bo knicks improved. He's okay all right. I just i i'm not there. I've been wrong before i was wrong..
"bo knicks" Discussed on Against All Odds with Cousin Sal
"Four turnovers by quarterbacks already brace young looks flawless. Seven touchdowns. No picks look so smooth rematch of sec. Championship game or that game was pretty close but in this situation bama just florida's a totally different team lay in the fourteen and a half. I'm doing it and they roll right one while its cover one. More parlayed penn state at home favored by six and beaver stadium over auburn fifty. Two and a half is the over on their these teams. I haven't played in eighteen years. That i read that right the capital one bowl. I feel like i remember that game. obviously this is one of those things auburn beat akron and alabama state by a combined. One twenty two to ten. You know they don't give up any rushing yards pass. Rush looks good. You don't know what you're looking at. i think. bo. Knicks is better than sean clifford. Who's kind of settled in though auburn. Six and three against the spread in the last nine seven lasts seven played in september against the spread. I'm going with knicks at having not seen a lot. And i know penn state be wisconsin. They have the better win of the of the two teams. But i'm gonna take the six and a half probably kid sell with you on this one. Sal yeah i think bo nixon Clifford of penn state the two quarterbacks of kind of had the same yeah career trajectories. Here they came in with some hype and they've got kind of been underwhelming over the years so they've been okay but just maybe Have performed up to the expectations. I can't believe oh next is still here actually at auburn and like you said a hundred and twenty two to ten in their first two games have been challenged at all but jar quiz hunter from auburn. I don't care who the competition is against. He's averaging fifteen point one yards per carry so far and i'm just gonna take the sec athlete. Kind of like the way how he was talking about big ten over. Acc what's this. Look at the sec. Over big ten here. I think they just auburn has more athletes on this team. I think bo knicks will make some plays with his legs compared to clifford or make a couple nice runs big runs here and there scramble out of the pocket make some more plays and clifford does. I'll take the points here. I think they keep they keep a close. They might even seal one here. Sal on the road really all right. That'll be fun. Yeah it's hard to go against the sec. Ever i'm trying to look at shark tank that we do this. We did it monday. You guys give your best jump on one. Jump away from the other. Two we have job tank. Picks right what you had me. We won the jacks over. Four and a half i carry. That was jackson's first. Run is gonna be over four and a half yards eighteen. The i four and a half. He ran backwards then he just turned around and said. Let me get some more here so easy. Good job by you. Brother bri the other sharp tanks of polychaete came close with rugs Over fifty right. What do you wanna watch. Tough one to watch. It took the adjusted plus one sixty two so that loss harry went against yu darvish. That one giants baseball giants won easily. All right. how are we start us off. I'll pick one of these. Okay we're gonna do a four team money line college football parlay for saturday's this guy. Wait and hope before. Harry takes it. Did anybody notice what he's saying. Alabama says you know. I don't like to take the favorites. Yea he's all over china. I don't like waiting points double digit point. I don't normally like to do that down so so little money. Line here down. I'm gonna take alabama. Like i mentioned minus six fifty sabin and young. It's a can't beat combo. I wanna take toledo minus seven hundred against colorado state. They've put up seventy eight point in their first two games. Maybe should have stunned Spaghetti's notre dame team were colorado state. Maybe this might be the worst team. I can remember them. Having lots of south dakota state by twenty lost bandy a both at home. Mom take north carolina minus three ten against virginia sam. How isn't losing at home. An old message. Seven fifty against two lane quarterback matt coral six touchdowns zero picks this season. Second on the team in rushing. They've scored ninety seven points in their two games. So far this season the right. Now i don. He's a second odds on favorite to win the heisman. So it's mississippi minus seven fifty north carolina minus three ten toledo minas seven hundred and alabama at minus six fifty. Did i hear. I was driving to work but mikey meatballs today. Did i hear brock party might be benched. I mean they had that other kid in there the other day. That big actually moved the ball down the field. Listen iowa state isn't dead yet because the loss was a non conference loss their dad and they could tell they still when you have to beat oakland y y you can't you can't get blown out nana bad conference though solitaire twice. They're not dead yet. I was not as teams in this country. Yeah and the conference. All right brother bry gives us a sharp thank pick. Yeah i know. We went over a lot of games here. But i'm gonna take one that i think was We did. But i'm gonna take cincinnati minus three and half small favourite at indiana. I i might be selling indiana little short here after that week. One loss ads iowa which was pretty much because of a couple defensive touchdowns but panics. Obviously i don't know if it was the injury from last year but he's struggled struggled throwing the ball again. You can't really go by any any of these games. So far i think for either team. 'cause idaho man that's not a. It's not a big win for yadda but cincinnati. This is this is their year with all these other losses at some of these teams have had. This is their year if they want a shot at the playoffs this year. We saw how good they were last year. You know they should be georgia in that in that bowl game If they were playing notre dame they played notre dame in two weeks there at notre dame so they can beat indiana they have to make assed this has to be a statement win here at indiana And then they at least have a by going into the notre dame game if notre dame was next week. I'd feel a little bit more worried about this game But i do think. Cincinnati is gonna put on a little bit of a show. They have most of their offense back. We know defensively. They've always been good for for the last couple of years. But i think Ritter puts up a lot of points right syncing minus three and a half got the four team. Money line parlay polly kid. What do you got well. So you've just wasted time listening to those guys. Because i know you're gonna put mine. Anybody was going to parlay what we talked about. I was gonna take packers box browns and a parlor but it's really like minus two hundred right now. Is it really. Yeah those those us two hundred with those three. Yeah someone over thirteen or something. It's the bucks minus seven twenty on. It didn't like it matched up with the news. Unless i've read it wrong. You guys could look it up. But the packers of minus five ninety bucks minus seven. Twenty brown's wine at six fifty really came onto a minus close to minus two hundred cells..

I'm picking al-barem never gonna pick state love it. It's a writer pick auburn. I love aubert. Love nothing to do with what he just said. I think penn state can win the gatherings very close penn. State beat wisconsin. They should have been down. Twenty points at halftime wisconsin. Shoot themselves foot. Almost going in and unforced by the way. Yeah like snap shutting that type of stuff. Picks len leap. I think auburn i i. I think this'll be very close game. I hate i hate bonex. i can't do it. I hate bonet. He will make you puke. Twelve out of thirteen bonex interceptions in his career of come on the road is nowhere else worse on the road in this place. That's i just can't do it. Can't the only thing that would make me nervous about penn. State is now james. Franklin though usc thing people are kicking that around but maybe he gives me a may gives me a little juice by doing the locker room like. I'm not leaving. Even though he probably will leave yes that would be nice because you can get some juice from that. Were you impressed by penn state. I wisconsin their defense. Yes i think they're very good. I would not i. I still think. Sean clifford's mess. I mean was caused drove right down a couple of times. Just two unforced fumbles. I do think they have some guys on defense. I just it's more. It's less about penn state and more about knicks. Not trust bo knicks on the road. He's do not trust bonex period. It's a big game. It just feels like it might be closed for a while. But penn state minus six i. I'm i'm taking bonex. Beat that auburn. I'm sorry beat. The oregon team a couple of years under neutral site. Also got like if you watch that game. That was a very lucky fluky. Memory the through like jump balls yeah. Oregon had it. What i'm saying that is the point where everybody's still does not that bad. That's why i hate him. Because i had organ in that game sorted. I if you watch us name wasn't bonex. He doesn't get the hype that football. And it's a quarterback name. Yeah it's sec. Quarterback name agree twelve. Now by the way. We're so you didn't take your your ducks. I didn't mr duck quite it turns out anthony. Brown is not as bad as he has he was. I watched them at. I didn't love him. I needed to see it.

"The second time calling on talk to you last year we were talking about a clemson and notre dame and the a and m situation but just i got two things The first one is. Do you think that is a candidate for the position. And should we be worried in college station since sam right now my My butcher is a candidate for the job. i think everyone is. His name has been mentioned. I don't have a butcher by the way i. I don't think so. Because i think it's going to either be a prominent head coach or or maybe you know maybe a coordinator in the nfl. Like schefter reported. Although i really don't think that will be the way they go. This is a very specific type of job. And you've got a professional make. This is not pat haden or lynn. Swann some ex player masquerading as an athletic director. This is a professional athletic director. Making this decision. And i think he'll conduct the interviews and conduct a search in accordance. Nothing against elko. But i just don't think elko I mean what would be the connection right right. no. I don't know My second thing. I wanted to kind of make a point. Going into the bama game last the backup quarterback that that could be that like we kept the game close. It'd be a lot better loss than that hanes king we roll up through there and we. We beat arkansas. Pretty good and mississippi state and you go into that close game with the backup quarterback and then king comes back and we run the slate. I mean station sam. It's a great scenario and yeah. I don't think there's any question losing your starting quarterback as a mitigating circumstances. But it really depends on what else is going on and what you need is this. You don't need undefeated. Alabama and undefeated georgia playing playing in atlanta right. Because i i don't think it difference. I think both of them would get in the playoffs. And and i have a hard time imagining third. Sec school getting in right right. No that that makes sense so we got to beat bama. Well i i mean you need you either. Need to be bama or or get some help and there could be help out there. We don't we don't know Means conceivable alabama could lose this weekend. I know that's what some florida fans were telling me right. Well i know who will be rooting for. I think i understand. Well thanks for the call. Appreciate it very much. Let's continue with kevin who is in atlanta. Hello kevin hey what's going on paul. Thank you good. I got two questions for you. You know. I know the first games all played in a couple. Kinda low t. Marquee match out so How do you think they're gonna fair. Verse penn state This weekend and do you think Coach and is kind of changing the culture. You know I didn't really know a lot about him when he was coaching up in boise but i kinda liked his personality and kind of kind of what he's bringing as far as his intensity and trying to get the best of his players so well we'll kevin remember that's why he was hired malzahn for all he was and i think he was a good coach Head really lost the direction of the program. And i don't think it was all my fault. He didn't have a lot of support. I'm not sure he had any support in. I ran into the former auburn president. Friday morning at the airport. Stephen leash in he was about the only person who who was supporting malzahn. And who made sure that malzahn got that contract extension because everyone else they were wanting them out and he was always on the verge of getting out so i think what carson has done is. He's brought he. He's brought a freshness to that program. He's energized Stale product tease help bo knicks. Find himself with some offense now. The question now is what. What is auburn going to look like when they start seeing real bullets and they'll see that saturday night and they'll see that against georgia. Lsu and ole miss and mississippi state and alabama. Texas am so. I'm not trying to rain on the parade. I think it's great that there is optimism and auburn has been flawless. But let's be honest. They have no. They haven't played even a bad team yet. No absolutely you know. I i you know. That's a great point. I would bow next to you know becoming a junior. You got tank biggs b. I really like what they got The defensive front their offense ally has never been their strength. They're all seniors kind. Your how do you think they're gonna match-up or south penn state. This saturday night. I i don't think very wealth. I think it will be a good game. I just At this point. I'm struggling to come up with ralph auburn to win. Now that's hard to say. I know that's going in the face of what we've seen so far. But i thought penn state's win over. Wisconsin was significant and me. It was a painful game to watch. It was a defensive struggle but that defense showed me a lot. yeah. I mean with with wisconsin. They they had some submits chances during that game as well. It should be interesting. Because the game is at penn state wide out so it is going to be the first true testament Do you see any improvements with bow knicks this year as far as i do. I didn't see anderson perimeter with bow knicks And i think maybe maybe he just needs some confidence but we. We need to see bo knicks under pressure. That's where he is. He is often lead games. Get away with bad decision making. And and that's understandable Quarterbacks don't do well under pressure most of them don't hey thanks for the call. Dennis in colorado. Hello dennis we taking my call. How you doing. We're doing great. Thank you first of all before. I start talking a little bit about colorado. I want to say that Been a bamboo as four years old. My daddy moved the family from atlanta adulthood. So roll tide to start with sure but it seems like pac twelve. Maybe starting to get a little bit of a little bit of respect here Finebaum show well. Pac twelve has some really bad teams. And i think we've seen we've seen that with washington. We've seen that with a couple of others however oregon has been fantastic. Ucla And you know there. There's some other good stories as well and i was. I was very impressed with colorado I thought they played a fantastic game for a program that nobody is given ten. Second start to in a long time. Well nobody outside of colorado does that very much but would it be fair to say that even though Take your am had that quarterback injuries that put the most part. They outplay tech. Today and most of the game. I think so There's no question That that that was a fantastic performance. And you build on those things am look good. The whole In a mystery team right. Now we're gonna talk to our next guest about them because they they have a couple of games that we didn't think would be close against mississippi state in arkansas. While everyone's been talking about alabama and suddenly you have to start reexamining things and that's really been the fun part of of this first. Two or three weeks of the season is arkansas has emerged Other teams have have have gotten a lot of mississippi state. The these are schools but but every one of these has roadblocks and that's just mississippi state has an sec. Schedule that is. That is frightening.

"Analysis schedule or projecting in the top twenty in efficiency so there are some serious tests for the tigers defense to where we could see improvement. And i do think we see improvement. And they're not gonna like just look completely disoriented at times. I don't believe but i don't know if they're gonna make the massive jump. Everyone thinks because the schedule is very difficult. Yeah i mean. We've talked about other teams in the sec. Not knowing where there are losses that they're going to encounter. lsu i think is the exact opposite the game against ucla. Four four and a half point favorite That number widely available. Of course right now. But i don't think it's a slam dunk that they roll into pasadena and get that victory and then you're talking about some of those winnable games all coming on the road against sec opponents whether it's a september twenty fifth date at mississippi state going to kentucky on october ninth playing back road games albeit with a by the middle against ole miss in alabama. Before you finish with three games at tiger stadium against arkansas you. All monroe and texas am clearly team. Lsu that i think a fan base is intrigued to see their football program as anybody else because they're not going to be as good as the team that won the national championship. They're not going to be as bad as the group we saw last year. But somewhere in between lies the truth and nine wins or is it. Seven should be an interesting team to watch. What of lsu's rivals. No pain in the sec west. The auburn tigers. They of course parted ways with gus. Malzahn this off. Season incomes bryant. Har- seen from boise state at curious higher in every sense of the word in my opinion auburn. Fifty to one to win the sec. At fan duel sportsbook. Sixteen to one to come out of the west and their win. Total six and a half thirty five to go over the total. And while i started with har- seen being the right guy the one attractive factor or at least everything you read surrounding. This higher was that he's good working with quarterbacks. And they're going to need that. Because when you watch bo knicks last year i mean there may not have been a more erratic passing quarterback. That's yet to even scratched the surface in terms of the potential. They thought that they were going to get from this guy. Fortunately for bone knicks. He has a workhorse. Running back in tank bixby but goner. Auburn's top through receiving targets and an offensive line that returns intact but they did have plenty of their own struggles a season ago. There's so many places we can start with auburn and the first is if you want to fade auburn. There is plenty of seven out there now. The questions you bring up our great. Brian hartson what is he housing and operate in a territory. He's not familiar with at this level sherry spent the five law season at arkansas stay. It wasn't recruiting at this level. He wasn't in these kinds of recruiting battles. This is a guy that was born in idaho and now he's in the deep south and you have an unrealistic fan base and program. That isn't okay with losing four of you know three or four games a year. How do they get excited about a coach. That lost almost three games on average per year in the mountain west. So it's really interesting from that perspective. The players are saying the right things. There's more energy. Apparently there's there's more structure and accountability practices or more intense. Those are the things i'm hearing right. You have to earn everything now. So it's a complete.
Matt Stinchcomb on Auburn game
"Matched joining us on the call Tamar for Kentucky and Missouri. Couple of quick questions before you go. Auburn playing a really important game tomorrow at Ole Miss Important because you know the partly because of the Kentucky loss but it it excuse me the south. Carolina. Loss. But. It just seemed like there are so many issues on that team right now and the most Mo we hear often about the quarterback situation, but you understand has an alignment it's not just a quarterback. What else do you see going wrong at Auburn? So much. It's easy to point to that, and obviously this is a complimentary sport I. Think the emergence of Tank Biggs B. is going to help I think the potential of getting sean shy back at the running back position also veteran presence guy that gives you some movement elusive play in space that will help on the ground game. It takes the pressure off of Bo Knicks because ultimately, it can't be all on his shoulders now granted there hasn't been great decision making and this is a football team could easily be winless right now we're not for some for tourist bounces and that's nothing speak towards the defensive. Side of the football where we knew there was going to be some deficiencies relative to the level of play that they got defensively along their front. You don't just play another Derrick Brown and Marlon Davidson in there but now you're down a cage a Brit in the middle of that defense all of that impacts our overall play I'll be very curious to see if ole miss gets going early in this game that amount of pressure the scoreboard itself they can apply on the Auburn offense more. So the score board board then the onus defense I think impact the level of play the get out of that. Tiger. Oh.

"College football rankings route and i want to go through three things that matter and three things it don't matter you could argue none of it matters but i think that's a little dismissive and yes a lot of this stuff takes care of itself and you know when i saw the rankings things come out and you're like ooh they got georgia but six at penn state at four there ahead of clemson what all these things mean should ohio state actually be number one overall issue well let's go through it here's what matters bama mccutcheon this actually does matter a little bit now if you want to say the committee has an infatuation with obama do you really feel like obama wasn't one of the four the best teams all the years that got in you know is that all of us just being guilty of the the laundry and falling in love with the name that were gifting them chances just to get in or do they usually beat some really good teams and other than the clemson national championship loss they hadn't had any bad losses since two thousand seven i'm talking like hey that's a bad loss how did you lose that game and you got blown out they went like a decade without one so that means maybe rightfully so here though that the committee does still will like obama and if they were to lose illustrate this weekend and you also have to compare to other years but compare obama to the rest of the field bama emma is going to get in as a one loss not SEC champ over clemson who if clemson were to stumble has no chance so there is no infatuation with clemson's dominance since the north carolina game the north carolina close win is being held against clemson and when it comes down to comparing this team to that team and you're trying to figure out how to decipher all the stuff and i'm gonna get to that a little bit later it isn't really about that it's just going right you know what we're not as in love with clemson so i actually think clemson jason being outside of the top four as much as they take care of their own deal and their clemson and they win the SEC they're going to be in the playoff considering all these other teams have to play the other teams obviously penn the state ohio state are gonna play LSU bama this week as you mentioned but between alabama clemson two teams that are undefeated with not not great resumes the room is telling you they prefer bama and i actually think that means something georgia at six i think is wrong wrong when you lose to south carolina with their second and third string quarterbacks and you play the way they played where they had a stretch of about three or so weeks where europe like this is not the team that i thought was supposed to be dominant i think that's a problem that georgia is at six ahead of oregon in utah utah's loss is hard to explain oregon's losses against a good auburn team where let's face it for the most of the game oregon was the better team and bo knicks it's ridiculous store at the end and look that's why they keep track of this stuff but it's okay to look at a team that loses going yeah that's really probably shouldn't have lost it's okay because you know you we all do it so it does matter matter that the committee and this isn't necessarily i don't know if it isn't SEC or not but it seems like they're hanging onto georgia here a little bit more than they are the idea that a pack twelve champ would it'd be better remember oregon utah both you look at their last three remaining regular season games both teams should probably be eleven one at the end of the regular season and i think they should just both be hire especially oregon with their loss versus georgia's loss i mean utah's losses worse but oregon's loss isn't worse than georgia's loss and yet georgia is ahead of maybe right now the favorite in the pac twelve

"And then pete thamel dropped an article and if you don't read his stuff or don't check him out he i think he's one of the he's probably the best sports media member in written sports. He's phenomenal a nominal and he broke it down and put every detail of exactly what i was feeling. I mean the way that mario cristobal managed the the first thing he did. Was they blew a two timeouts. If you don't remember just in herbert gets hurt they call timeout then they don't realize that they're not allowed to put him back in time out kept by his way back in so they go to put him men and the rest like hey buddy. You can't be in here and crystals confused. All the coaches are confused. The analysts upstairs are confused like they don't know the rules of college football you you you literally as a coaching staff. You assign a guy to be the rules guy. We did it or how state his name's tim hinton he was in charge of the rules like he had to know the rules study. The rules find find out new rules. Educate the staff on the rules so that everyone knew the rules and when it was time to do something he wanted to be like you do that. I don't know what we're doing on here. This is major college football. You don't have somebody on staff that you rule guy yeah. I mean it was this is first time coaching a game well. It's just blew my mind and not not only that they had to blow another timeout. Just a confused look on. Everyone's faces like you're confused. I knew that like what are we talking about so that it was bad enough that just shows that there was so much mismanagement at oregon. I mean at this point. They got a tough ask coach. They had all the whole lines coming back. They've recruited well. They got athletes supposed- athletes all over the place. This is supposed to be like their year and then to just completely blow the game because of mismanagement by the coaches is a shame but what really did it for me and this is what i saw and i was yelling at the t._v. I wanted to throw a remote through it and then when pete thamel broke down the numbers that time i'm on the clock when they snapped the ball there four minute offense which means they're going to sit there and try to run the clock out. They call it four minute offense like if you do a good job you should be able to run four minutes off the clock to win the game there in four minute offense and their last three snaps before giving the ball back to auburn. They snapped the ball with eleven seconds on the clock six seconds and five seconds. You add that up twenty two seconds. They left on the clock. You snap the ball at three in case any wondering you don't snap it at one because god forbid the centers a little late and you get a penalty you snap at it three so that hopefully it get snapped at two. You're maximizing the the play clock to eat the clock. That's twenty two seconds. I don't know if you know there was nine seconds on the clock. When bo knicks made an unbelievable play to win the game nine they would ran out of time long before that it would've been a hail mary situation and and odds of completing a hair hail. Mary versus a back shoulder throw from the twenty five or wherever he was is obviously astronomically lower. What a tragedy for oregon. I really haven't seen a clock mismanagement like that. Since less miles was down at l._s._u. It was bad and i'll tell you the other thing and i've said it a three different times on this preview show. I watch us film last year. I don't get the hype i know. He's a good player but justin herbert was exactly what i thought he was. He is an arm talent that is just above average quarterback and it really you really saw because what happens a great quarterback goes down in a big time game and they go win the game for you. That's what tim tibo did it. Florida has j. t. barrett. Did it ohio state as a cam newton. Did it auburn big time quarterback vince young texas. Oh big time quarterbacks when you the game when it's a big one. They win it for you. Just in herbert lost it for you. It all started for me in the second quarter six minutes on the clock. They're going to make it twenty one to three with crazy momentum.

Davis which by the way is not a bad team seven points and three turnovers <hes> in the <hes>. I sixteen minutes of the game. <hes> you're basically playing from behind so you know the calbears coming off the what was it the cheese at bowl in the beautiful nine six game that they played last greatest full game that actually e._s._p._n.

They're taking the next level <hes> they're gonna have to clean their act up because by the way they're playing at washington next week. Which is kinda really nice for them that in some ways they did struggle that they're gonna be able to get a little slap in the face so yeah calbears didn't look great but when it came down to it in the second half davis had nothing and really just took over so if you watch the game you saw there were definitely mistakes. That could have been cleaned up. <hes> drop passes. It was just a comedy of errors in the first apathy you you found a way to win and on paper. If you look at twenty seven fourteen okay fine.

"They got a really good arms and they're desperate to win the job. And so I'm really excited. This summer is going gonna be big for him. You know, earning their teammates the spec really looking out the fall camp looking forward to that. Listen. I mean, there was a time when the idea of a freshman quarterback was was was unheard of. So much has changed. Where are we right now football with these guys just come right in and most of them were I I think I think the quarterbacks are probably the more prepared, you know, with all the seven on seven everything that goes with it. And you know, Joe joy Gatewood. I think I started recruiting in eighth grade. You know, we knew that he really had a chance. Bo Knicks the same way, I think he was an eighth grade. And so, you know, both those guys got really good coaching in high school and really well prepared, you know, once they get to us, and you go through it every year, and this sometimes it's easy like last year. And sometimes it's it's it's complicated. But what are you looking for especially with a young player because there's a lot to deal with it? When you have an opener like like you do. Yeah. You know, the good thing is we've got an experienced him. And I really feel like we have good leadership. And so, you know, hopefully, we'll be good enough around you know, early in the season. You're exactly right organs. Got a great team. We play. Plays a really tough. I six games. Also, you know, so we're going to have to grow up quick you expect to have a few growing pains. But like I said, I just hopefully we can be good enough around him to help them overcome those early growing pains militiamen. It seems like every time we talk we're talking in years past we're talking about it's tough schedule two years ago. You. You're you play them at the end of the season though that the teams play for the national championship ones in a couple of times when you look at that schedule. I mean, I know you got to you have to prepare. But you had how do you deal with everyone saying, this is the toughest schedule. And really, I think it is a tough schedule. We've had in the ten years I've been Auburn. I do know that for sure, but you know, our basketball team really gave us a great example. I mean, you look at the grind they went through in the run they went through and as they were going through it. We talked our team said, hey, this is exactly what we're going to have to go through. And really. It sounds simple. But it's take it one game at a time. You know, we have Oregon first game. And we've got to put all the energy in that. And then after that game, let's go to game too. And so it's really going to be as simple as that. But you know, the good thing is if you have a really tough schedule at the end if you're playing really good football. It usually helps you as far as the rankings and everything that goes with that. I wanna posher saying you mentioned basketball. It was it was so cool to to watch Auburn do it did. But you were there, and I think when when you when you are the face of the athletic department in many respects, it brings a lot of the school to see you in the stands cheering where it was. It was so fun to be a part of. And I'll tell you what I figured out. It's a lot harder to be a fan. Then is coach. I it was driving me crazy. But you know, it was really special. I got a chance to be at the Kentucky game and the regional fine on we lost our best player the game before and for us to win that game. I think BRUCE'S staff did one of the better coaching jobs ever seen in any sport. And then of course, you go the final four, and that's the first time..

"Well, what is it about? Interested in I've rarely seen Apollo. I listen, I don't care. You know, what candidate he pulls for? But I thought that was really interesting. And the reason I thought it was interesting is that the governor is the key to the the hierarchy of of LSU athletics. And it may have been the smartest move owes done getting on the good side of the governor. And maybe you know, getting this morass at LSU straightened out. Yeah. Well, you know, we of Louisiana boot and athlete my mainland on TV right now that we're but anyway, it's that call in whatever the badly, thanks for the call eight to run we're up against the break. But, but I thought I think the governor stood up for or is you're on when when he was about to get fired by Joel leave us. So that is interesting just in terms of state officials, not statements employees of university getting involved in politics. But then again in Louisiana. There are no rules. Let's take a break. More to come. We've already had Shad Morrison buzz Williams. It is Friday, and we are not done yet. Stick around for the final ninety minutes. You're listening to the Paul finebaum show podcast. Welcome back. We are. So glad you're with us in we often your phone calls. Eight five five to four to seventy eight five Lee in Memphis is up next Haley good afternoon. How's it going to question? Reading Arbor chances are against Virginia tomorrow night. And she think that Bo Knicks starting to quarterback Auburn in the first game. It gets over again in the fall. You know, I I've I've had all these experts on. And I thought Seth made a good case for Auburn winning. I still tend to agree with where the line is. I I don't know. I'm I'm a little bit nervous about Auburn. And maybe the the emotional ride sometimes running out. I would've liked them more. If I think they were playing Virginia on Monday there. They had so much dren Lynn going this is a long week. And I don't I don't think it really favors one over the other. But but I I tend to favor Virginia slightly. Knicks. I do think we'll be the starter. And I think. The question becomes Hal effective is going to be in the first couple of games when when Auburn we'll see Oregon and who else is on over early schedule. Is it AM couple of other heavyweights? I I think that's the only issue. I I think he'll be great the second half the season. But Auburn has a lot of tough games, including of Florida. I think that ends the first half. And that's my only concern about that. I everything I everything I've been told about him is fabulous. Thank you. Good to have you on Lee. Thank you. Let's go a little bit south of Memphis and Joseph is in Tupelo Hilo Joseph. Yes, sir. How are you? Doing Davis ball. We are doing great. Thank you. All right. Well, I'm glad that. But I'm on a. Thank about the situation. But this guy was Alex said other he said, go to hill ole miss. I mean, look, I know that that's our biggest Robert I mean, a lot of things that state is. But there's been me as times. But I do think we're going to have a great football team this year. And I thought your opinion to stay that. I think that we can lease between nine games. You know, I I'm as double double scale double check the schedule before I can go along with nine. I think I think nine is that a little bit optimistic. Here's the schedule for those after night. So at Memphis, Arkansas, southeast Louisiana, California at Alabama Vanderbilt atmosphere, E A and M at Auburn LSU, Mississippi State and look at the schedule right now. And it must've been my seeing nine wins..

"But they got replace good defensive players. But I think if I had to pick the east right now, I think Georgia gotta be prohibited. Favored with Florida next. And then you. You could put the rest of them in rattle the box. We had a writer on yesterday coach who who really believes LSU's at ten win team. Maybe the the best threat to stop Alabama. Let's start with Alabama though in your former head coach, and it just seems to me and I realize he's the best coach ever. And I realized he has the best players, but the staff issues that have gone on at Alabama. What what toll has that caused maybe in the championship gaming, and what effect does it have moving forward? Well, you know up until last year never really bothering them too much. You know, they lowesforpros and any Laos Pruitt, and they lost some other guys. But you know, they had a big turnover last year going into the year. And I think some of these younger guys defense and hard time mission a little bit in part of it was the fact they didn't have a lot of experience in the secondary. So I gave up a lot of easy plays chunk yardage plays. If you don't see Alabama do ever. And so I think that hurt him. But you know, the thing about coach saving is he understands what needs to be done. He's he's brought in some very experienced guys to work with some of these younger guys. And I think they'll be very talented in their schedule a promise you now you could get really off to pick vote to place, London sky. I mean, it'll. Yeah, their schedule is something that's not their fault. But their schedule is not to overwhelming from my standpoint. And. I think that's going to back there, and you know, his knowledge of the system and he's worked with Sark before. So I think our bama's gotta be right up there with Clemson. And and you know, as far as the national picture, and the one thing that's overwhelming that that you really see in the NFL draft coming up next week this coming week is you got eleven players from Alabama and eleven players from Clemson at the combine. So if you don't have any players that combine you probably not winning many games. You know, what I mean, we got nine there. So I think that's a real indicator where you know, Alabama. Clemson are every year is the fact that leaves the guys to the pros seniors and juniors talking to Jim Don coach, I'm really interested in in one team because I never heard more opinions about about a specific program. And I'm speaking of Auburn, which is coming off of a bitterly disappointing year there. Schedule next year is problematic. They don't have a quarterback with any experience. No, that's not a new thing any longer in college football. But you're Cessna of what Gus malzahn faces in twenty nineteen. Well, he plays a tough schedule for sure particularly in the fact that you know, his crossover games are with probably two best teams the two best teams in the eastern Florida in us. So and then you got out Bama and M, and we get to talk about LSU. I think she's has got really thank coming. Now. If you do the job like like you're supposed to in that state. There's so many players, including tough, you know, a really strong basis down there in the top five for this next year. And I think they got a really good team for the teachers. So we'll an we know what jimbo's capable of but getting back to. And I thought the fact that guests even though the you know, Purdue and put up. Much of a fight. I mean just took back over the offense. And they they look pretty good. It gets Purdue. But they're gonna have some tough games. No question about it. This Bo Knicks kid I've seen him on Tapis soy's dad play at all Bernie's high school coach in the you know, played through his dad..
"bo knicks" Discussed on The Solid Verbal: Living College Football
"Yeah. Of course, is that's what happens when when we picked it and have a bad season. They have a great season. Well, we picked them to have a great season. They have terrible season and contemplate paying thirty two million dollar buyouts. I just I don't know why. And I realized they're going to get a bowl the bowl bump of all bull. Bums from what they did against Purdue. But I think that was more of a catharsis for the guys that were leaving of. Hey, this season didn't go the way we wanted it to can we please go out in style. And we just make this better. But you know Gus malzahn calling plays. I guess I never understood why he stopped. Yeah. Because isn't that the thing he was really good at? So why not continue doing it and him calling plays in the ball game certainly worked out. Well, that's great. And probably made some people mad like why why why was there this conflict all season when if you could have done this. Why didn't you just do this? So I I don't know how that's gonna work, but they've just got to figure out what they're going to do at quarterback in the fact that they've they've not been. Particularly active on the transfer market leads me to believe that they feel like they got somebody. And maybe that's Bo Knicks. That's the incoming freshmen, maybe maybe they like him. But they had opportunities. They have gotten Austin KENDALL when he was coming from Oklahoma. So I think that tells me they like what they have coming in. Now, we'll just have to see if it pans out because you know, quarterbacks who signed with Gus out of high school have not done, particularly. Well, they've done better with transfers and Cornerbacks who become quarterbacks. Yeah. Right. Okay. There was a corner that they could move to quarterback. Yes. A corner at some other school that they could move to quarterback that would be fantastic, but smells on ideal. Yeah. But but look from a talent standpoint Auburn looks like when they get off the bus. They look like LSU, and it looked like Alabama. They look like George. So I don't think they're that far away from being good. And this is what happens with Auburn. That's why you know every couple years. They flip a switch and suddenly they're great because they have good players, right? It's just a matter of getting the chemistry. Right. So I think, you know, maybe maybe they do get the chemistry. Right. Maybe having a very clear organizational chart on offense. We'll help them more because that's that's album for the last couple of years. Yeah. And they're scheduled this past year down the stretch going to Bama Ruutel. It's so brutal. So it can only improve. I know they opened with Oregon next year. But down the stretch, they have Georgia and Bama both on the planes. I'd rather open with organ play organ in November next year. 'cause I think by Tober November organs gonna be really really tough to beat. I hope so I agree. Give me a number. All right. Let's go to number three number three is LSU. Who you just mentioned? I think this is my. I think it'd be dumb to call a nine three regular LSU season with an inexperienced transfer quarterback. A sort of new offense coordinator wins over Auburn and Georgia and ole miss mind you and a new year six win anything short of a good year. But if the clear formula for winning the SEC west aside from talent and defense is being able to stress Alabama vertically is LSU. Are they self imposing a ceiling? I don't think so. Okay. I think they're bigger problems. Alabama was in the trenches last year. They just they just got whipped up front. And I think they're going to be better. And you're you've got you know, now three years of Ed ores, Ron recruiting basically because he was the recruiting coordinator for miles at last year. So you you've got three years of him recruiting linemen be be they offensive or defense of you know, what he knows what he's looking for. I do think they're going to be better upfront. Which they need and in terms of guys coming back. I thought they came out fairly well on that normally LSU does not normally LSU lose his everybody that they could possibly lose. And so getting back. That's a big deal. Yeah..

But you always wanted to go say, hey, man, great game and getting give him kudos for what they deserve. And most great forts skorts Mahan. Great giants sports figures will do that. And do still do it. So that that got you need. To go to what about a sportsman car of the year sports. Like, you know, that's a great idea. It really is. It really is. Hi, I'm getting another call. Interrupt. Jim go gate, grab you call. He always hate when you're hosting a program and a caller gets another call and has to leave the program. I bet that doesn't happen with our next guest Casey in New Jersey. Casey, welcome back to the show. Yeah. Paul how you doing? It's been a great. It was a great football season listening to you guys everyday watching the show and tomorrow, I'm in the car for seventeen hours drive in Florida. So I'll be on the podcast for seventy hours. That's a trip. Yeah. I got they by the way, you're getting you're getting out of the you getting out of the east coast just in time. Yeah. I got I was gonna leave Sunday. But I think I'll leave tomorrow it added there that's pretty bad and just do it right through. But but Auburn we're paying gusts seven million dollars a year. Yeah. Hi, he's underachieve tile. I would say I think we could all agree. I think that would be a couple of years. How come you can't recruit a quarterback though? You know, we well hold on. I think he did. I think he has a good quarterback coming in bone-in. Knicks knicks. Yeah. Well, everybody says that but whatever somebody transfers the rumors are out there, you know, Kelly. Brian. We've got the guy from we tried to get hurts. We tried to get the guy that came out of. Clemson Kelly Bryant, nobody came. I mean, it's like, okay, we got Knicks. But why are we going chasing all of these other, quote, actually, it's the way it goes. I mean, Oklahoma's got the top quarterback coming in. But they went after Jalen it's all about having more than one and the problem with Bo Knicks. He he's never played before. And right now Auburn is going to count on him more than likely to be the starter without a single down of experience. Yeah. What do you think? Eight nine wins Paul to keep his job. Or you think ten wins keeps his job? I think probably nine and above is is is going to be necessary. But we were chatting about it earlier. Casey. That schedule scary brutal. Yeah. Yeah. One thing about offer Nate to schedule tough every year Paul especially the opening game. Yeah. That's that's that's a tough game. Never had a cupcake. But anyway, love your show, and I'm glad everybody's doing. Well, John registrations. More quit his baby. And till we. Fun. Listen, I'll I'll be. On the road. Thanks a lot Logan in Colorado. You're on the air. Hi, how are you doing today? Hey, logan. So I I'm in Oklahoma fan..
"bo knicks" Discussed on The Paul Finebaum Show
"Overwhelmed by by quarterbacks at the moment with experience. What's what's the view of him from down there? I think they just want more competition, and they want some some older guys on campus, you know, with which you're still leaving. You know, you've gotta competition between or among three players really with not a lot of experience. One of those players has never played college football in bone. Nick, sues Mr. football in the state of Alabama, the son of Auburn legends, Patrick nix? You have Joey Gatewood who did not play a game until garbage time in that blow out of Perdue. And the music city bowling didn't really throw the ball. And then you have Molik Willis who seemingly is regressed since his first season this past year made some very difficult base of very strange Reeves and the zone read offense. A he runs dual threat guy much different from the other quarterbacks on this campus, very similar to Nick Marshall. But there's a lot of concern about him in his decision making when he's on the field. So. So they were going to this spring with the situation where it looked like it was going to be a battle among those three. And Bo Knicks. I would think from talking to people even though he has yet to throw a pass on campus other than in the high school state championship game was seen as like the slight favorite. So I think getting an Austin kindle type in earwood one add some more competition to the fray, but would probably give Auburn a year or in. This case kindle, two years for Auburn to have another starter on campus and slowly integrate a guy like a bow Knicks Joey Gatewood into the starting lineup down the road. But as it stands now auburn's very short on the experience department, and I just wonder how Auburn is selling its quarterback competition to Austin kindle, or even when they were recruiting Tim Kelly Bryant is that Heo come in and be the starter right away. Or is it? Hey, Austin, kindle, you're gonna play very much yourself at Oklahoma. You're gonna have to come in and win this job. No. Promises. How does that set with him when he's probably being promised the world that other programs like West Virginia talking to Brandon Marcel Brandon UC Gus malzahn, a lot more than than we do. We saw him out in California. And he was unusually relaxed seems like a different Gus malzahn from recent time now, I say that because we all know what he went through and what often has gone through in the aftermath of last season. Let's talk about him and and spinning forward to next year, which we talked about the dearth of quarterbacks right now at least experience, and and we know that schedule is close to being ridiculously hard. Oh, what's your outlook for the Tigers in nineteen? Well, I think their defense is going to be top fifteen again, they've been top fifteen the last three years they returned Derrick Brown who was probably going to be a first or second round pick this upcoming year. I was shocked that he came back through. Senior season that a lot of talented guys on the defensive side of the come back. Obviously the big question is going to be quarterback if they can get good quarterback play. And also get good running back play. 'cause I kind of took it down where turn this season. This is a team that should compete for nine wins next season. Now does that make Auburn fans completely happy? I don't know. But I think it's enough to keep Gus malzahn afloat going into say an eight year, especially with as much young talent as he's been utilizing this past season and again going into next season. A lot of these guys are soft doors and when they're so young at the quarterback position anything can happen. You can go one of two ways obviously Trevor Hornets is an amazing quarterback. I'm not comparing anyone Auburn has to him. But I think smells on sees that this idea that you have to hold back on a freshman quarterback is necessarily the case anymore. If you believe in the guy, and he is a true freshman. A lot of experience. But he just has that mossy about himself. You throw them in the fray, and I think that's how they feel about next live long been saying that Longman feeling that we'll see..
"bo knicks" Discussed on The Audible with Feldman And Mandel
"Quarterback signees coming in five star dual threat quarterbacks at a ton of records at eleven high school football great legacy from his dad as a QB in high school coach lots of buzz about him. If Clemson can bring in a freshman quarterback and go to the national championship. Could Auburn do the same with him in twenty nineteen? He also says can we give BRUCE'S own microphone you or podcast or your hotel? Had a hard time hearing him. Yes. Just handed me. Thank you. I saw Bo Knicks at the elite eleven his dad for people who aren't familiar was is Patrick nix. Former Auburn quarterback who'd been a college coach for a little while point offense, coordinator, Miami and has been a successful high school coach he's considered a lot of folks the best quarterback or the most maybe the most ready to come in to college football make an impact this is not considering you talk to to college coaches and also folks who who've worked at the elite eleven as one of the better college quarterback classes, a lot of people think it's down across the board. And that Bonex is probably the best of of not a great bunch point that I would think is Trevor Lawrence. Obviously really talented but the cast around him. I mean, I don't think Auburn has that around him it just to me there's a big difference. And also, quite honestly, a big difference between who Auburn is playing against their division as opposed to what clemson's got. I mean, there's almost no margin for error when I look at. Let's say bonus coming in their jerks stems pretty talent that injured stood him struggled in that offense. Offense didn't exactly until the bowl game. Look, very crisp. Well, so you bring Bonex, and let's say he is the starter to is going to be back for Alabama. I don't think Alabama's taken a step back, and they might even be better. The probably Quinton Williams will probably move on. But that's still got a lot of good young players in LSU should be better than they were this year when they won ten games. I think Texas AM is only going to get better under JIMBO Fisher MRs gonna lose some really good players on defense. They're gonna to Nick FitzGerald when you talk about the top three in that division. Iding? It's going to be Alabama LSU an. AM? They're not there if anything they're going to be better than they were this year. So I think that's doesn't bode well if you're gonna use the Clemson analogy as far as Bonex, I don't know what the answer for over. And is exactly I mean, you saw they did to Purdue in the game and bowl games as Ralph said or not really the best way sometimes to measure these things, but they got you could tell like they've got play. They got guys who can make plays in space. But some reason during the season their offense was kind of a massive legitimate quarterback. So I've just come at this point to expect that when you expect big things from Auburn, though, this point when you have low expectations wore them, they do well, they will probably have low expectations next year. So maybe it'll be Clemson either Alabama or Clemson versus Auburn in the national championship game. All right last question from Sean, Sean in Chicago, the other news, we haven't had a chance to address happen..
