"brad edwards" Discussed on Dual Threat with Ryen Russillo
"I think the average score now is thirty in those games and we went to a couple of remember own abandoned. Where several of them. We were obama michigan. And it's so funny too because you know the other programs a big time program with history. They're coming in everybody's hyped. The kids are talking themselves into it. They're on the sideline. They're waving the towels and it's fucking fourteen. Nothing five minutes later. Yeah and let miami. We'll just use miami from this past weekend. As an example they rate number fourteen going in they might legitimately be a top fifteen gene. They shouldn't look look like and they're gonna come away from that game dejected. And believing we're not gonna talk twenty five like so overrated and it could take five weeks for them to get their confidence back and they might never get it back and that's the danger and playing a game like that. It's like you know sure test yourself against the best. But you know i don't know you you. You really became a college football fan about fifteen years ago right. Yeah so. I mean i loved it. I always liked it But the level. That i was at espn and then traveling and then being all over the country getting to experience this. I mean it's just like as much as we all love the nfl. The saturday thing the geography the way the cultures attached to the program sometimes how the program and the staff and their style of play represents where they are in the country. It's just unlike any other sport that we care about this much. So yeah i would say that even though i have depth of knowledge going back historically of just being a guy on tv like the level of the cranked up to an oh six when i started espn so fifteen years iafrika number. Yeah and so right around that time thousand seven. We had one of the craziest seasons of all time you had his all this rotating going on in the top two teams losing left and right and i think somewhere a little bit more than ten years ago. We were at a time in college football where it was very possible and given week for number twenty two knock off number. What where you had a lot of instances where the top ranked team or maybe the top three or four. They probably had more talent overall but their quarterback wasn't as good. And so you've got a guy. Like a matt ryan you know you. Can you can on a given day knocked off the number one or number two and end up. Having a great season you know we. We saw a a bunch of those through the years where you had like philip rivers at. Nc state eli manning ole miss where. They're they're supporting cast as good but they were so much better at the most important position that that they were able to pull an upset. You're there what's happened. In recent years is that the teams that have the most talent overall and they're like four or five. Oh that just load up on the four and five stars every season. If they have a quarterback. I mean they have a really good quarterback no one other than the teams in that group of four or five is capable of beating. And we saw this with with lsu years ago with joe borough and with all the other years lsu hasn't had a quarterback they've been prone to being upset by teams outside of that group. But when they had joe borough no one had a shot at him except an alabama or a cleansing someone on that level. And now we're we're seeing this. We're giving obviously alabama's about to have its last three quarterbacks all start the nfl on day one on how many teams in the country even if alabama goes out and plays it see game are capable of beating them if they have a quarterback about me. Have you'd have to have a bad coach. Which is not the case at all right right have to have a guy that would be like. Frustrating and stubborn is a play caller and have bryce young. Throw four picks. You know i mean like the old game member. The ole miss gay dot alabama. Yeah it was a chad. Kelly game and bama still had the bowl of the chance minus five in the turnover column right now minus five turnover collar with oldness. Also having scored a touchdown. Baugh the quarterback through is was falling down at bounced off. Somebody's helmet into the hands or a receiver. Who took it more yards for touchdowns it took all that stuff ole miss with a pretty good quarterback to be able to beat alabama and so i guess what i'm getting at is i think things have shifted now to not only are see we've also entered this this phase of college football where it's no longer defense wins championships. I i i think the the last people who were holding onto that have finally relented now and will admit okay. That just having the best defense in the country is not gonna get you very far if your office isn't well above average and then of course that's a concern if you're if you watch that georgia clinton game the other night if you're a fan of either okay. Defense is really good but these days. If your offense isn't a lot better than what we saw. I mean a lot of that was good defense but both those teams have a long way to go on offense as well you know. Can you beat an alabama. If you can't a lot better offense than that. And i. I don't know i don't and i think that's one of the things that's made this premium on quarterback such a big deal. And when you know when you got a you know to In mack jones. And you've got dwayne haskins and just in fields and you've got shawn watson and trevor lawrence. Who else has a shot at knocking off. One of these teams and i mean. Obviously you got oklahoma at it. From talent standpoint pure talent across the roster is not at the same level as those other teams. But when you got a baker mayfield and a cuyler murray even jalen hurts you gotta punchers chance and everybody else in the country. Pretty much has no chance and of course georgia is up there with those others talent wise but up to this point. They haven't had the quarterback who was quite good enough to be able to knock off you know two of those teams in a row and and so. That's why unfortunately i mean we're we're in about the most top heavy stage college for all that you know. Maybe there's been since the very early days when you know the all the ivy league. That part of it is frustrating. Because i love that oh seven years my second year it espn. It was the first year. I started going to some of the games. And you know. Brad use right the research back for all of us and it was funny because like you could see how when we get. Brad also timmy. Off to this one like each school would send out their research packs. And i remember the one that really pissed us off. It was oklahoma. State once am and missouri. Went to the sec. Oklahoma state's information department start counting. Those winds is c wins. Oh yeah because left the conference years later and brad like wait a minute. Did you see this note. And i was. I saw the note and then the other one was. Oh seven like boston. College ranked second speaking matt ryan that your cow made its number two. Wasn't it west virginia pitt. Game away from playing for the national champion absolutely. So yeah we had this is seven hundred nutshell. Two thousand seven most ridiculous year of my lifetime and colorado. We'll probably never see it again. But we were dennis. Dixon of oregon does not blow out his knee on a thursday night game. I think it was against arizona. Yup was you. Could've you could've had an oregon versus west. Virginia national.

"Hundred gameboy dot net west virginia scott hanson the host red zone. Everybody's favorite show School man 'cause i remember having you on in the very beginning van pelt nine of you like hey are you watching this g realizes thing exists. It'd be like yeah. I do i do. I knew it was bad when i traveled back for college football and i would tape the seven hour show and try to watch it knowing i was getting back from some southern city late on a sunday so that was always weird and then i try to turn the phone off so that i wouldn't know what happens so it still felt live and adventure. Sometimes you like argument a fast forward through here. Because i always felt like there was some. There should have been some four o'clock eastern mercy rule when it was jacksonville that you were going to i down at their own fifteen that it was like maybe maybe i can fast forward through some of this and still have a good idea. What happened in week six. Yeah the late window can be a little slim at some sometimes and you know we start there. That's a good. That's a good place. Because i get hit by fans all the time thinking than i stack the games personally from the early window to the late window right right so when it's nine to split their like handsome why don't you move some of those on mike. Okay well first of all. It doesn't work that way. Second ball it turns out the nfl. You know knows how to make money. And and that is you know this but for the audience. That doesn't might not notice. They wanna create us sometimes in the late window. A pseudo national game and that's why you're gonna see maybe a two game window or let's say a three game late window where one of the games will be arizona and seattle This year's good game but but like a maybe more regional jacksonville tennessee. Something like and then. The third game is cowboys giants. And that's where it's being spread out to most of most of the country so now the early window is the early window is obviously where it's at as we have kind of either dubbed or stolen the name depending on who you talk to the witching hour for the end of the third quarter all the way through the fourth quarter the early window. That's really where the where the actions that as the pressure point of the show. Yes scholars have argued the origin of the witching hour. But no one you one hundred percents here you have a take on it I it's almost like one thing. Where if something is invented by someone. I think the inventors are always forgotten in the promoters of the ones that remembered so if if my buddies part of my take our tweeting out the witching hour all the time then it just becomes that it's their thing when i feel pretty certain knowing that that one of the two or not sitting around one day just saying ham. Call this window the witching hour but the fact that they have the following they have that it then turns into kind of their deal which is why i always think it's a little funny and i don't care if they get pissed off or not but there'll be certain things that van pelt and i'd done ten years ago and they'll be like one you know. Look it's not even the same thing but they'll do like a thing and then i'll circle back on something i do with van pelt and then they're like hey you're stealing from part of my take actually. That's that's right through and go okay. Let me show you recording this time. Where we did the boston accents. No one wants to do that. We we did. We did life advice or whatever else so yeah now all right. So here's here's something. I thought was really interesting. Because the nfc's over the years we always kinda knew what to expect. It'd be new england than a bunch of teams firing the coaches every two years. And now even when the wing feeling better with mack jones. And i think the mac jones decision has to be not only about mack jones but also about cam struggles Cam and camp to worry was mack jones and then also his availability with not being vaccinated. Which is a factor in in roster decisions. You know i mean that's the grownup world of these guys are in we. Now have a a group of four quarterbacks here where they're all really young and josh allen feels like he has the chance to be running the division here now for a long time which is a bit of an assumption in assuming no one else is going to be good enough but the bills are better possession. A better position now at quarterback Than any of the other teams youngest quarterback division starting quarterback division. I believe in modern. Nfl history. like i think in the super bowl era. I mean the elder statesman in the division as a starting quarterback is twenty-five year-old old josh allen. So it'll be fun. It'd be fun to watch I think bella check. We all know done do anything unless he thinks it's gonna wind slip ball games so the matt jones decision. It's not like well. He's the future. Let's let have the future start now. He's he legitimately thinks. I believe week one. They have the best chance to win. The cutting kampar of course is the interesting Interesting aspect of that. And i'm not so sure it had to do with vast status or availability maybe availability but not necessarily back status. We saw the soundbite dibella check gays. About hey you guys and you know bellichik was asked straight up that vaccination status were or the coldest situation have anything to do with releasing candy. No a pause. And then they were moving onto the next question and bella check interrupted the the stacey james whoever was pr person that was running the zoom and and then gave a more elaborate answer saying by the way. You guys talking to the media. You guys have the numbers you might wanna look up. How many coaches players and staff have been infected. That were vaccinated you. Might you might not wanna lose sight of that now that's a paraphrase of what he said. So belichick was almost giving us a back state guy. Thank on on that. Maybe of veiled vac steak on the doesn't necessarily mesh with much of the public's backstage in its ability to swat cova. But i think i think he definitely thinks matt jones is. The is the way to go here. The releasing of cam is just. It's experience it's gotta be a locker room dynamic or or bella check went to him and said. Hey i'm naming mac number one. Do you wanna be released because you think you can go catch on to be a starter somewhere else by the end of the year. It's it's not happening gear short of an injury to match. And maybe cam said coach. I appreciate it. That's respect for former. Mvp and that type of stuff. That's an interesting one. I will say this. So with the way mag jones's flashed a bit in the preseason and bill. Check anointing you. The patriots might not be as far back as people say like don't necessarily pencil in buffalo as the division champ. I would probably still predict them. But i don't think it's going to be always fate accompli based upon last year. Yeah i would say the the best part of the cam. Newton story new england is that everybody really liked him and that in the locker room thing was always a the guys look at him. It almost legendary status. You know it's it's not quite might vick but you could tell when vic to a team was these guys that were just an awe of them and i think cam had a little of that too But i also feel like bella checks answer and just me..
No. 9 Notre Dame Escapes With OT Victory Over Florida State
"Florida state. Are they better. They have to be better. They're down thirty twenty. They hang in there. George travis quarterback in a weird way they got back in this game running the football because notre dame stayed with a three down linemen formation and then florida states. Like this is what you're giving us. We're just gonna keep taking. It kept running the football down. But mackenzie milton if you remember him at. Ucf to top ten heisman finishes had played a game since november. Two thousand eighteen. He gets back in. It was the story of this game. A starts i think five or five numbers actually could have been a little bit better than that and they tie this game up and send it to overtime for state missed the kick at home. So notre dame's probably gonna pretty get no one's gonna care for state might be better. It's kind of one of those momentum losses when you've been down as florida state but you have the expectations that you should have when you're in tallahassee. But i'm not sure and again notre dame no one's gonna care because the playoff losses.

"Welcome back! Oh, we'll try to get as many calls in as possible. Let's go to Pete in Mississippi. Philipe. Man is great to hear you. How are you coach? Hanging there for an old man. I'm scared to think you've had quite. I'm really. I can't wait to hear from you because you not only been a head coach at the highest level. You've been an assistant and you're a high school coach now. That, that best correct, Paul and You know I just first of all. I appreciate what all you do that. Appreciate your friendship and you know a friend of ours Dr, Larry. Lee Mack said that Paul Finebaum could could could fillet like a fish. Wanted to. But You know I'm I've been in this business forty two years. And trying to get a couple more years in high school here and you know it's just You know all these people that call in and. You know I've always said this ball that. People view coaches, players, and that type stuff somewhat is options. You know but we. We've been having summer workouts We had two kids test positive for covert. We were shut down fourteen days. started back. yesterday and I'm standing out there on the field, and of course I'm old and been a long time and I'm just kinda thinking. What are we doing? You know that this somebody's child out here and I think that's one thing that. Kinda gets lost in the shuffle and of course I'm I'll be sixty four in. September in diabetics and you know just trying to start back school, and that type stuff and it it it. It makes me think that. You know what is important in life. You know we put such A. And I'm obviously made a living for forty something years in football, but you know it makes you think what is your priority was these kitsch? Yeah I'm really glad to hear that because You hear the same thing we hear coach. and I try to listen to all sides. I evolved from there not long ago, I I would have done anything to get to the season underway today. I'm starting to question like you are ultimately though having been there and. In inner stole their. How safe do you think it is? Well, I think the biggest problem I've heard you say it on. Your show is the high school level. Because you know our. We're waiting next week for our association to give us some guidelines, and whether we're gonNA play, Blah Blah Blah. And, but you know we don't have. h strength coaches on the sideline trainers, and and four guys full-time to you know they're talking about. Making, the sidelines from tenure to the ten yard line and everybody's social distancing, and this and that and but we as high school coaches. We you know we're GONNA. We'll have that Manpower. You know they can put in all the recommendations they walked but It's just very hard to put that into practice, and that's my biggest concern and you talk about okay locker room. And Weight Room. Those are the two. Primary areas you know and and what our school which I have to say we want to stay championship and six. two years go and But in our school we're we're. We have trouble getting under vacuum. Our coaches office much less disinfect everything. You know between sessions in the weight room or whatever and so. You know that's my biggest concern and You know I just. You know here again. Go back to the the kids you. You know what it? What is fair. For the kids in this business. and. If I can ask you to go back a few years. When when not only were you are head coach but you've been an assistant coach as well. They, do have the resources. You're absolutely right, but. What What do you think their biggest challenges are right now? Especially starting Monday when when we're back, you got coaches on the field again. Exactly and. I've been out of our workouts fall. and I you know I'm. In the high risk category enough I wear a mask and and I promise. You can hear me more than ten yards away and but I think the biggest thing is just You, know the interaction. And how are you GonNa? You know have lock at the line of scrimmage. You know you know football is A. Is a physical game and context sport you know and so. That's JUST GOING TO BE A. Real big West mark so to speak, and you know, and then again I'm kind of talking about the high school level, but also in college. You know that okay when those kids leave they're. You know they're going to go to. Burger King or go somewhere. You know they're going. You Know College kids are GonNa go somewhere. You know I did when I was in college. You know and you did you know but you know it's just? Kind of going back to whatever that guy said I can control for two hours a day, but I can't control them for. Twenty four hours a day. You know so to me. That's the biggest. Concern, and You both know that I've been in enough levels to know that. It's about money. You know it's about money and I understand that I know that. But at the same time you know I do have a Consideration for the I I'm not gonNA say children, but the young people and like you said you know they go to. You know the grandparents are dish, and so it's just It's something that I haven't seen and forty two years this business. Coach most important stay healthy You're still a young man in my mind and. Take care of yourself The catch up one day. Yeah well. I'm old. Pay You. You're so mellow now. These people, nowadays, they have no idea. WH, what you can be and and I'm waiting one day for you just on a leash one of them. Well I I I'm under under serious medication. That's why. I know but but ball. Hopefully we can get together at some point in time and and I. Really do appreciate you, and what all you do, man and I consider your friend. I feel the same way coach. Please stay in touch and I'll be I'll be watching very closely to see what happens. Okay thank you sir. Thank you great to talk to you coach. By the way there is some breaking news Bruce Feldman. And Nakuru back of the Athletic Reporting that the PAC twelve. Will announced today. That is going to play a conference. Only slater games so even though there has been a lot of pushback in various places, that means that two of the big five now are down, it also means that anyone holding tickets to the Alabama Southern Cal game in Dallas You might want to frame them. Did, you know GEICO's now offering an extra fifteen percent credit on car and motorcycle policies. That's fifteen percent on top of what.

"Say See thing really has me intrigued because. Clinton always has a pretty good path but I mean. Do you have you know I was just thinking about a reboot I mean. Do you have any idea? Brandon I, I guess the answer's probably no, but I'm. I'm just curious how these leagues are going to add ACC and SEC to the other one would not have to add as M- probably more any more than one. there. There's a lot of calculations are go into that. Yeah I mean. If you look you know big ten PAC twelve big twelve. If they just stick to conference only they had nine games and then obviously the SEC. The ACC would want to play nine. They wouldn't want to just stick with their eight now. Of course, the the SEC could easily add another conference game because they're already five teams in the other division that. That, you weren't playing. It's just you know at one of those teams schedule for everybody but but then obviously I'm guessing you've already talked about this on today's show you have those in state rivalries at the end of the year between ACC. SEC and you states, and and so if they want to keep those and make those in the ninth game then It sounds convenient the the problem is, is that is that you know? Georgia Tech Louisville and Clinton on top of playing their in state rival also have Notre Dame so. I don't think they're gonNA be able to play both of those. So which one are they? GonNa? Give up a look. You could potentially and look I. I I understand that Notre. Dame wants to host. Clemson, you know I mean that that's a home game. Opportunity that you don't WANNA pass up! It's good. It's Clinton is right now, but at the same time. If you were to say, okay, let Clemson play South Carolina we'll find a new opponent for Notre, Dame your increasing the chance of Notre Dame going undefeated that point, and maybe ending up in the playoff, whereas loss to clemson might be enough to knock them out so I mean I look I think between you. You know between Boston College and Syracuse and whomever else. That's out there in the ACC. You could find enough ACC opponent at eat another game to help Notre Dame. So there are a number of ways that could go You know with Clemson as far as do. They play Notre Dame or do they play South Carolina either way. They'll still be a big favourite, but obviously where those programs are right now, trip to Notre Dame seems a little bit more dangerous than than playing the gamecocks and Brandon. Just another subject is closed because again a lot of us. We don't know and it is early and nobody other than the big ten is announced, but. I'm assuming that college football would have a bowl season and. A lot of schools are are are hurt. South Carolina others who need a bowl game badly you know South Carolina lost three probably sure wins. They didn't lose A and and Clemson. Other schools may have lost four How do you? How do you compensate for that? I I have no idea of course I mean one of the other questions that comes along with this you know. would. Would you still see every bowl game in existence you know? Would some of them either old, or would they at least you know? Take a pass on this year. which would make it easier to fill all the spots if that happened, but if it didn't I mean to your point every year, you have a number of teams with a losing conference record that have at least six overall, because the non conference is so easy, and now that you're getting rid of that. You know what does that do obviously a conference like the SEC? They had four shots to win. Out of conference. you're you'RE GONNA. Make it more difficult for them especially. So I. Don't know I, mean it's all. It's all part of the finances of it and and. You! Know the obviously. There are a whole bunch of games that no one's really making any money going to some of some of them. They lose money going to. And then, of course there are others there, basically breaking, even so the biggest bowl games is the most important and kind of getting back to where we started this conversation. This to me, is another no-brainer reason. Why. You should have an eight team playoff because if there's. A state, the obvious, which is at everyone in college football, everyone college athletics has taken a huge punch to the gut, because of of not having the Ncaa Basketball Tournament revenue all the extra money that's being spent on all the virus testing going on right now. We already know that if they do play games, it's going to be in front of what you know. One quarter to one third full stadiums. They're losing all sorts of money. The one! Major? Revenue source that is still untapped is increasing the size of the playoff. And so to me if you were to do that for this year, as long as ESPN is, is in a position, financially work, it can afford to pay for the extra games, and then the advertisers are there to help ESPN. Make money off of it. Then you know I. Mean This is money that these schools all the way down to the FCS level desperately need, and so I don't know why we wouldn't do that. If the opportunity is there to rip up the contracts and make it happen, except for the fact that you know there are people out there who obviously don't WanNa see teams again next year, and like I said earlier it's just it's just impossible to put the genie back in the bottle. You're right about that great conversation. We'll continue this. In the future Brad. Thanks dropping by really appreciate it. You gotTa Paul Take. Care Brad Edwards a legitimate college football conversation there there may be a first this month. We will take a break. Your.

"Brad Edwards dramatic heather did it should studio Steve what is giving us some updates okay ma'am thank you very much are concerned home today bill second quarter western Kentucky of fourteen seven on the Razorbacks that came on the SEC network on ESPN to Texas tech on the road and up twenty one seven against West Virginia Hey John Henry apparent touchdown runs for the red raiders and that one northwestern looking for its first one of the big ten up fourteen nothing at home against Purdue on the ACC network right now Boston College seven three lead at home against Florida state Georgia tech on the road and Charlottesville leading seven nothing against Virginia also in the second quarter arm your home fourteen seven lead on U. S. active studio with men thank you stay we got updates coming every fifteen minutes right here on college gameday on ESPN radio field goal for Penn state fourteen to ten Minnesota with the lead in that top twenty match up with ABC how rare is it is a is a match up like this from Minnesota read all the you know what this is just so awesome for these fans in Minnesota to be able to to be a part of a game like this you look at the last fifty seasons okay fifty seasons for the four teams involved in these undefeated match ups today this will be the one hundred twenty first top fifteen match up that Alabama has been involved in over the last fifty years one hundred twenty first with a ninety second for LSU the seventy seventh for Penn state this is the second for Minnesota well I mean this is a rarity and and the other one was at Michigan so this is the first time the only time in the last fifty years that they have been able to host a top fifteen match up the thing is the Minnesota looks like they belong in his get more the belong right now is about a minute to go in the first quarter Minnesota leads Penn state fourteen to ten they've got more total yards more first downs they're playing like then is it is a fair fight there was a lot of criticism from Minnesota in their week schedule coming up to this point but at this point these fans for the first time in so long Brad they're seeing the team that belongs heather you mentioned earlier the importance of the I. tester style points whatever people want to call it for the Alabama Ellis you loser today that you you don't look over Matt same thing would be true for the Ohio state Penn state game assuming Penn state doesn't lose today to Minnesota how true is it also for Oklahoma those two pac twelve teams that have won loss as they go down the stretch because one thing that we haven't yet seen in this playoff era is a real battle between a won lost nine champion and a won lost champion we've seen the one lost nine champion edge out of two lost champ but it seems to me for that conference championship to carry that extra weight to get them over the top they've got a look the part of a top fourteen two yes I would agree especially when there is a weaker non conference schedule or overall schedule that you have to overcome which would be both would be in the case of Utah for example I don't think the selection committee would penalize or again for lining up against Auburn and losing a close game at Auburn's finish with a winning record even if it if it drops the iron bowl or or something out of this at this point thank you for waiting for their two losses right now they still Georgia and Alabama left or right so I don't think that that would keep them out but or again needs to assure the committee that they're a top four team by leaving no doubt down the stretch here against weaker on ranked opponents and then really make a statement in the pac twelve championship game in order to convince them they are top forty so you're talking about what people deride as the eye test I mean you've got the resumes in rank wins and things like that but at some point you got to put on the tape and decide who's good and how good they are and you made a great point about where Alabama is relative to Penn state right which is if you're going to put pen state and at number four because of those wins why don't you put pen state ahead of Alabama and rob Mullins was asked that question on Tuesday in a teleconference he said because Alabama is quote just better that is the I. tax now this led many is not incentivizing quote running up the score they don't need to see you beat a team by seventy points but they certainly know the difference between Alabama beating LSU by a field goal and winning by two or three touchdowns if Alabama had beaten old mess by a field goal Penn state would be number three possible but that that's really what it comes down to write it's north kits the Clemson North Carolina narrow escape if Clemson head pounded North Carolina Penn state would be fifth in clubs would before but at the same time what is contradictory and confusing to fans and people listening to all of this is that rob Mullins also said that the committee notice that comes in has been playing better sense that game against North Carolina so how much does that way in contrast with the clothes road in what September it means if they hadn't played better they might be six or seven that's very very polite but I think we're also at the point in the season where a loss is a loss and yes there's no more room to overcome a lost between Alice you Alabama you can't make it up you know it strikes me as we're talking about this that style points are important for both teams and the Alabama LSU game today is not just for the loser to keep it close if you're the winner you want some separation there you want to make a statement that like look we're we're a lot better than this team because the SEC championship game against Georgia is not a Gimme no and if you're undefeated going to that game and you lose a close when they're you want the people in that room to still have ample evidence that you are one of the four best teams because they're gonna have a Georgia doesn't lose again they're not gonna put that demand over Georgia which leads me to the best case scenario for the SEC which is LSU wins out loses a tight one to Georgia the SEC champs how would you leave out in LA she team that went into Tuscaloosa and won that game it would be the best win in the country and then losing a close game to Georgia that to me is the clearest path to two teams from the SEC getting unless George loses to Auburn and still wins the FCC and then you have a to us as the C. channel how does it is easy chip no matter how many losses given that to win the SEC you're gonna face probably a top top top five team in the championship game how do you not allow it to us as C. T. SEC champion Terrell's I think yeah I think it opens the door for debate it's who you beat also if you lose your right but that this is the balance I think that that I struggle was sometimes because you've got well who did you struggle against or you lose too but then who would you be well what if you go back to six earlier question and you have that scenario in the SEC and you have one loss Ohio state sitting there at the didn't win its division do you take the Buckeyes would you take to Los Georgia I'm taking a Buck I'm thinking about guys I don't know about you guys her for the big ten is that you guys are right now such a great case for a team player there's no doubt but then these arguments would be as exciting that's really that's really what it comes down to a metric Brad Edwards and Trevor Matich here chatting with heather Dennis fourteen to ten Minnesota with the lead on Penn state Ohio state with a twenty one nothing lead on Maryland they got second down and ten in the red zone looking to add to that point total in T. C. U. with a three nothing lead on twelfth ranked Baylor of that that's interesting just to see if Baylor can just hang on here and and remaining team that's ridiculous you're talking about can Baylor quote hang on there three is that right on the top floor one fourteen can hang on just a forty or use the top defense of the coverage of the he interesting to watch will be watching that we got LSU and Alabama the knee jerk was of Alabama loses today they are out of the college football playoff how likely would be that they would miss the playoffs if they lose to LSU today I think there would be an extremely good chance that Alabama's playoff hopes would be over with the loss and I would venture to say even with a close loss because I don't think that their schedule I don't think there's anything else on it at that point that they could prove to the committee their quote unequivocally one for best this is their chance they've got to do it today the committee has shown it seems to be especially with this group but if your schedule it has a question mark on it your play needs to provide the exclamation point Alabama has done that so far this season Clemson hasn't for that one game against North Carolina which is held them back Penn state has the schedule and has shown that.
Ohio State tops College Football Playoff rankings
"As for college football first rankings are out the Buckeyes are sitting at the top of the list at least for now Ohio state the number one team in the initial college football playoff rankings allies use slotted at number two Alabama third Penn state fourth those four should change since they play each other away she would Penn state meet as do LSU and Alabama but for now the Buckeyes were the driver's seat their first number one ranking in the playoffs Penn state is in the top four for the first time in school history one is in right now number five ESPN analyst Brad Edwards well I think it is fine I I don't really have any issues with what they came up with I think the most surprising thing a lot of people is the defending national champion still undefeated I mean there are no once a winning streak now for close to twenty something I mean and that they're sitting there outside of the top four now we know they're not in trouble obviously if they win the rest of their games they'll be fine they'll be in the top four because some of those teams in front of them have to play each other with the LSU and Alabama BC this weekend and I'll have a live stayed ten state couple weeks later so Clinton's in good shape but it is a little bit jarring I think to a lot of people to to see that team especially they continued to for the most part to dominate their competition be sitting there outside the top four do you think this is a a direct result of the closer we in that they had at North Carolina absolutely I think if you look at these top five teams all undefeated you gotta start splitting hairs right a what separates them and for some of them its schedule you know separate them from the others that's what separates Ohio state LSU from Alabama for example both of those teams have a couple of top twenty wins Alabama has no top twenty five wins at the moment so it seems to me a foregone conclusion that Alabama at bass was going to be third because of that and then that's the same thing you you have when you get to cleanse and compared to the other four is there is that they are the only team out of the five that has played a close game against a team that's on right and that's that's the damage that simple it was one bad day is the reason that comes in is number five instead of who knows may it may be as high as three or four possibly better I mean he does this bottom line still is that like Alabama Clemson has no top twenty five wins Alabama just hasn't played a close game get someone you should quit because is there a scenario that you could see that the top four remain the same even though they have to play one another at some point I'm talking LH you barely loses at Tuscaloosa Penn state when they go to the horse you they rarely lose a great game could could that keep them the same no I mean because like I said it climbs in wins out claims in will move into that top for they will go ahead at some point we'll go ahead of these teams yeah they have losses now Clinton it's conceivable could get all the way through this thing all the way up to selection day having not beaten a team that's rank in the top twenty five by the selection committee it is possible things break around way for them but I still think because they're winning in dominant fashion for the most part except for that one game they'll

Football's one hundred fiftieth anniversary for those who don't know the first college football game was played in eighteen sixty nine between Rutgers and Princeton final score Rutger six Princeton, four doesn't sound like today's game. In fact, if you look there's no video of it, I've right? But, but I think if we saw the video, we would recognize very quickly. It's no nothing close to what we know football today to be, and that's one of the fun, things about this just on top of everything else just learning how the game itself has changed over these years while there were twenty five men to aside, and you couldn't run with the ball. All but a little bit different thing is Brad is it a week later? They played again at Princeton and Princeton one. So a weekend to history of the game, we had established homefield advantage, which I thought was pretty cool. Yeah. And, and I think I also saw that someone retroactively applied national championships to all of these seasons from way back and including all the way back to eighteen sixty nine and they gave out a split national title that first year between Princeton and Rutgers, so yeah, this indecisiveness in being able to name national champions in college football started from the very onset of the sport. And one of the things that, that I guess. Kind of kind of makes this whole project. Interesting is, we're trying to go back here and put together some lists for all the fans of the greatest, this, the greatest that we're going to start in August..

We are. Taking your calls. Eight five five to four to seven to eight five. We're going to discuss a little a little bit more SEC football here before we segue into a couple of other conferences that we want to just touch on briefly in this hour, we're going to talk a little bit about the ACC and the big ten looking ahead to this two thousand nineteen season. But let's get back to those calls. Joseph in Tuscaloosa, how are you? Breath doing great. Oh, man. Appreciate you taking called pot. No. But man, Nick's going undergoing surgery today. But I'm telling you about that ain't gonna float anything then marrying go slow down because he goes still golf call conducting business now I had some things about coach saying he don't sleep maybe about four hours. But I ain't no ending though surprised the man doesn't get complacent, you know, let his guard now. But I'm gonna say this isn't gonna make the Alabama players play much harder. We got such better coaching staff this year, you know, he got so young. He got some old veterans, and that's gonna help because a lot of things we played against Clinton. Everything was going along on both sides of the football coach David phone by the L chains. Call your body heal me, but your mouth another side of town. You know, Mike Laughlin Tosco poor miles another side of town. And they'll get around. We've got to give credit to Clemson. They won that game. They want it fast square. No question about it. You can't even disagree. But I'll tell you what there's no doubt in my mind to Alabama got that ship and the show, but giving no to something breath. Every time out about play Clinton. Do you realize the number one team? Never worn. Do you ever notice that? Yeah. And number one team has never by the way, the number one seed has never won the playoff. That's right. That's it. You know Clinton with nocco violet Bama, Alabama got knocked off about Clinton twice and Email Clinton was a number in Knoxville Alabama twice because forty five to forty and a twenty four to six and then they beat up thirty thirty five thirty one.

And I'll tell you it was like the number one don't have any success, but here, but here's the catch. It is. It's all about the chip. I'm a shoulder death. What it's all based on.

"Listening to the Paul finebaum show podcast. Paul finebaum show. I'm Brad Edwards joined by Matt Schick, and we've heard a lot of people comment on the Arbat Meyer situation over the last couple of days. One that I just recently saw speaking on ESPN for the first time since this broke is Kirk herbstreet and I want to hear what Kirk had to say for two reasons. One is that he obviously is a premier voice on college football for ESPN, but also. Because being an Ohio State alum and having covered college football for so long at ESPN. He knows urban Meyer very well much better than most people do. So here's Kirk herbstreet just a little while ago on ESPN. Well, I think you if you listen to just the the word on the street, are you listen to to people on talk radio. It seems that it's very one sided and that he doesn't have a chance to come back and be the head coach at Ohio State. I personally just saying for myself, this slowdown, slowdown, let's allow all the information to come in. I think it's only fair in any of these cases to to look at this and really study every aspect of it as opposed to saying that this person, whoever this person might happen to be. In this case, it's urban is guilty until proven innocent. And I feel that in this case that has happened, I personally want more information to come in. I want to see how urban responds. I want to see the investigation how the university responds. And then again, after we have more, I think than we're going to be able to see whether or not he can survive this and move on as the head coach. That's it. We've only heard one side and and unfortunately for Meyer it's a very credible side and also unfortunately for urban Meyer. The one thing that he really did say about it at big ten media day, as we connect dots seems to be an untruth. So the the sooner we can hear from him the better I just don't know, Brad, and we talked about it. I don't know what he could possibly say. Other than my wife didn't tell me that information. I had no clue. But if that's the case, then why was this coach fired? If urban Meyer the day after he was fired, said there was nothing there right? But he said, there's nothing there. Why would it report a create that? Yes. So had already been fired. So there's just so much that that either miss remembering or misspeaking it just he's not getting the benefit of the doubt right now. You're right. I, it's not that urban Meyer has not spoken at all on this issue. He is not spoken to the most recent report to to the biggest bomb that was dropped, but he did have an opportunity last week to to speak about something related to this. And he, he said he, he might be telling the truth, but he said he didn't know anything about it in two thousand fifteen. And so whatever he says from this point has to align with what he said last week, if it doesn't, then he has no credibility and there's. There's no chance of him, you know, coming out, clean in this. So let's let's get back to your calls real fast, Joe in red bay, Alabama. You guys y'all doing today. Great, Joe. Well, good, Dan, you, and that both of them. Then it says that the one of us, but there's another aspect house state university. I'm not to bring up and this is, you know, all this open minded knew about it or should note about it. I mean, who signs this coaches paycheck by painting the university president or athletic director, shouldn't they have known something about this? And also, I mean, if you're, I mean, don't get me wrong. What I've been, you know they'd reported or didn't report was wrong than the stool official shirt. They knew, you know, whoever's got in his paychecks when you get risked, and I just like, no, y'all being on water being things said, well, was you know the face, the college officials will just how urban Myers..

"I'm Brad Edwards joined by Matt Schick, and we had the second day in a row. Spent the entire show talking about what's going on with urban Meyer at Ohio State as the buckeyes head coach is on paid administrative leave as the university looks into what did he know? And when did he know it regarding his former assistant coach, Zac Smith and allegations of domestic abuse against his then wife Courtney, obviously, because of title nine. There are implications here which would threaten the job status of urban Meyer at Ohio State. That's why he's on. Leave, and that's why they are looking into this. Now, last week after Zach Smith had been relieved of his duties as an Ohio State assistant coach by urban Meyer. A tweet was sent out by anti apple, who is the the mother of ally. Apple, Ohio, State cornerback just a couple of years ago. She tweeted this at Ohio State. Our sons were held to high conduct rules and zero tolerance when it came to violence against women and rightfully so I'm personally disappointed that coach Zac Smith was not held to those same standards, love my buckeyes, but this is bigger than football. Well said, let's go to Linda in Argo, Linda. Hello. Mr. Brad Edwards, it's been awhile has been a while. How are you? I'm good. How are you doing? I'm doing all right. We're good. And and an Hello to Matt Schick. I hope you're doing well to Matt. I am. Thank you very much for ask you. Thank you so much, Brad for taking my call today, and I'm gonna try to hold it together. Okay, I'm I'm, I'm very close, very close to domestic. Valance. Okay. And believe me when I say this and I'm not bragging is just an absolute fact and truth. I could write a book on domestic violence. That being said. And I don't wanna talk about that my my dad father, but he made his peace with God and with my mother before he died. But I feel like I just had to say this, Brad, I need to tell my story if I may. Okay. My dad wasn't alcoholic. He was about alcoholic. And when I was growing up. He committed to mystic violence. Oh, my mother. And I say that as a child, and I say that as an adult. Okay. And. Oh, my mother divorced him. And then well, they got back together and after a severe domestic violence that was committed, but my father, oh, my mother and they reconciled and they got they remarried, but things later on in their marriage concerning the family, not just necessarily the domestic violence and then my mother, her being Catholic. You know, she got a an annulment and but today. I'm close to it today to not committed against me, but I'm close to it and that's all I can say, Brad, you can draw your own conclusions. But this thing I think I don't have a dog in the fight. I'm not an Ohio State fan Alabama saying, but I have nothing against urban Meyer. But I believe he knows just know in my heart that he knows and I can't imagine Shelly. Not telling him I just I just can't imagine her knowing what Courtney Smith was going through and all the women that were involved texting and and you know the pictures were sent, and I wish I could talk to Trevor..

"The Paul finebaum show. I'm Brad Edwards along with Matt Schick, and we are now joined by Matt Hayes, senior national college football writer for Bleacher report guy who's been around the business for quite a while. Matt, and a little bit of want to ask you about something that you wrote when you were with sporting news about six years ago. But before we get to that, I just want to get your overall impressions of what came out of Columbus, Ohio yesterday and where you think this is going to end up going. Docking, Brad, in some respect it is. I mean, another respects that my surpri not really not really to me, I, I honestly believe this and I know every talking about, you know will how, how could you know ever not have known from Shelly? My my question is this what is Shelley? Myers motivation for not telling her husband. Why would she not tell him? I mean, we're looking at this completely wrong, then that's number one. And number two. There's another part of that story in Brett mcmurphy terrific reporting that story where Brian Bolotin, who is earned Myers, Papa operations guy has been within for fifteen years is as close to anyone to anyone on that staff and his wife makes it very clear, very clear that urban knows what's going on. She said, and and the tweet he or being urban, just said that he meetings back denied everything. He's talk. Talking to back. So I to me, I don't understand why this is such a a situation where we say, well, maybe did or maybe didn't, and well, what if somebody didn't tell him? I mean, he knew he absolutely new and framing to think anything different is literal. They're just putting their head in the sand. Matt, as Bleacher report, joining us reading your plane back from Connecticut yesterday and read the the story that was tweeted out from two thousand twelve in incredible visceral reaction of what happened under urban Meyer's watch at Florida with the arrests and kind of players running the show. And then he takes some brief time off and then comes back and with Ohio State. The story was written in two thousand twelve. We've heard people say Illich. The culture has changed. Urban Meyer has not to at least his credit. The players there haven't been player issues as often hard to be as often at Ohio State as they were at Florida. So in that respect, it seems like that has been cleared up, but do you believe that that he has changed from his time at Florida from the time he wrote that story, you know what? Matt. This is kind of how I look at it. And I think this is the way. It's been with his entire coaching career. If you have value to him, you're leashes longer and I don't care if you're a player. I don't care if you're an assistant coach, whoever you are when you have to him, it's different. You know, you have the circle of trust at at Florida, which by the way he denied that story came out in twenty twelve and the tweets, resurfaced and stories we service where he talked about the circle trust, you know, and then the first year he can throw house. They changed brotherhood of trust. He, he's a guy, I think, and I think it's the same situation with back and to me, Brad Murphy story Matt to me the last line and that story, if I was anyone will have state, I would be terrified by that. The last line that story is is courting talking about how Zach once told me that if he goes down, you've taken, everybody don't have state with. And my my question then is why would urban risk is his career is eight million dollar year job to protect this kid. And if I'm thinking, what else is gonna come up? What else is coming next. That's the big. That's the big thing for me right now. Matt. Obviously, the title nine implications are a major part of how this thing ends up shaking out as far as you know, what did Arben? No, when did he know it? Because there's certainly seems to be, you know, every obligation on his point two or on his part to report it if he did know something. But to me, there's another layer to it, which might not be as significant in terms of whether he keeps his job in terms of perception, the the idea that violence against women has been a soapbox issue for him..

At the end of last season, there is one game on their schedule this year where they are not a prohibitive favorite according to FBI, and that is at Oklahoma state week three. If Boise state could go into still water and beat an Oklahoma state team that has to replace a lot including starting quarterback Boise state's probably gonna go undefeated.
