"Not going to perform. I think them keeping Brian hartson is only a bad PR move. It's a bad move for the game. They will not win more than 8 games and the SEC, you can't get away with that. So that's my thoughts. I want to hear your take on it. But I just don't think they're going to win with the codes like that. Your player not happy, they won't perform. Well, Parker, the only way that they're going to change the dynamic is if something happens from within and have they missed that opportunity already. I think we need to hear from we need to hear from auburn in something other than prepared statements. I mean, I would just Sinclair the air. Get everybody up there at the table and say, yeah, we tried to fire the guy, but we didn't. But we love him now. I mean, I just want to hear something out of harsh and I want to hear something out of the administration. And right now, crickets. Thank you for the call. Let's check out John in mobile Alabama. Hello, John. Hey, Paul, how are you? Thanks for taking my call. Thank you. Hi, I got a question. Seriously, as an Alabama alum. Watching this horse and thing closely. I don't know if there's any way this could have turned out better for us than the way it did. Auburn street biggest rivals or self explanatory, Georgian Alabama. Those are the two top programs in America right now. And the only way that was going to change is if auburn had a dynamic coach. And I think a lot of people, as you heard in that last call, were concerned about you freeze. If you freeze, has a petition. That's a multiple leaning word. Yeah. You know what I'm saying? No, I didn't want to see you freeze in there either. Been fired Friday and you freeze introduced this week. The dynamics of the SEC west would have started changing immediately. Because she freeze can recruit. He would have brought in a staff and unfortunately for auburn, they're no better off than they were the other day, other than the president of auburn. It doesn't have to leave office with a black cloud over his head. He's back to retirement. He doesn't care. What does he care? What happens? The new guy can worry about it. Well, it's funny. I always thought that once pat died that they figure out a way to step down, but I guess I was wrong. Well, I'll tell you what, though, John pat die played a big role in retirement, I always felt pat died talk some sense into these boosters because he did understand football and they leaned heavily on him. Now, do I think pat dye would have been a fan of Brian harsen? No, absolutely not. Yeah. Yeah. Pat died liked. Pat I liked he liked hardcore football coaches who talked the same language that he spoke who understood what it was like to get to have been through what he went through. He would have loved Kevin Steele. And that's why those guys like Kevin Steele. Brian is in Birmingham and you are next up. Hey Paul what's happening? Brian. How are you, man? Brian, we are doing great. Thank you. Well, listen, I moved to Birmingham and 2001. I started listening to you then over the years, characters have been coming gone. Man, listen, legend. I can't take this guy anymore. I can't take him anymore. Listen, you know, he's got his whole backstory about the NFL and an inmate love that black. And then, you know, and then he calls in one day and he's crying. And he's virtually in tears. And I mean, it's just all smoke and mirrors, man. This guy, he had his, he had his little talk show where he did like car repair stuff. Do you remember that? Sure. And so I mean, where is that now? Well, I don't understand why legend, I don't know. Why does she get such a high place in your roster of characters and callers? I do not get it. This guy. I mean, come on. East coast black hat. Okay. All right, thank you. Hey, Brian, seriously. Legend is an agent.

"Sort of an outsider, not sort of an outsider, definitely an outsider. A young hotshot coach lane kiffin from California. He leaves after one season. And then Tennessee, which swings and misses on the higher to replace that hires Derek Dooley, who's one of the worst Tennessee football coaches in the programs last hundred years. And they've sort of been trying to climb out of this pit since then. You look at auburn then. Okay, they fire a coach who is largely successful, took them to a national championship game and Gus Mao zed, but it had started to fizzle toward the end. I can see a former comparison there, right? Then you bring in and outsider, not a hot young guy, from California, but nonetheless an outsider from Idaho. If they move on from Brian hartson after one year, kif and left of his own accord, but still, you're moving on from a coach after one year. And I think there we reached the critical juncture. Tennessee, hiring Derek Dooley, a hire that ultimately didn't work out. And I think history has reflected that was a pretty poor hire. I think to put it mildly. And then Tennessee spiral. I think that's why this higher becomes very critical for auburn if they do indeed move past Brian harsh. And now some things have changed in the years since then, of course. I think with the ability to bring in transfers and having immediate eligibility, I think it can sometimes be easier now for a first year coach to quickly rebuild a program than maybe during that stretch where Tennessee was sort of wandering through the desert. So some things have changed. The programs are different, but I do think it's a fair comparison thing. Blake Todd Meyer speaking about the Brian situation, Blake finally, tomorrow is this meeting in Birmingham, this SEC head coach's meeting. Do you sense? And I realize you're not on the ground in auburn, but from a distance as it appeared that the university will let him go to that meeting, or do you think that they will try to attempt to resolve this before? I think the faster you can resolve it, the better, right? But I think if you're going to, if you're going to put forward the image that you're doing a fair investigation here, you don't want to also then show that you're trying to rush this along and just try to prevent harsin from going to this meeting. You know, we've done the Tennessee comparison. So let's do it again. When Tennessee was investigating Jeremy Pruitt around this time last year, actually it was about 13 months ago. They let Pruitt fly out to California to try to maintain Henry's hotel on his roster and prevent try to talk Henry toe toe and to not transfer. And a lot of people took that at the time as evidence that, oh, Tennessee is going to keep Peru. Why would you let him fly out to California and try to talk to a current player if you're going to fire him days later anyway? Well, sure enough, Tennessee fired him days later. So I do think that as long as Brian is on the job, you have to let him do his job. And whenever you reach a reach a conclusion of what you're going to do, one way or the other, then you act, but no, I don't think you can, I don't think you can keep a guy from doing his job and fulfilling his duties while he's while he's still on the job. I mean, if you've got enough to fire him, if you want to fire him, then do it. If not, let the guy do his job until you reach a decision. Well, said, when you have to start using Jeremy Pruitt in an equation, you know, we got a problem here. Blake, hey, thank you very much for joining us. It's always great to hear from you. Absolutely good talking to you, Bill. Todd Meyer from USA Today just saw headline coming from AL dot com under the heading of Joseph Goodman, one of the prominent columnists there, the headline auburn's message to Brian is clear. It's over. You are listening to the Paul finebaum show podcast. Mike is up next in Kentucky. Hey, Mike, good afternoon to you. Hey, Paul, how are you doing? This afternoon. The longer this drags out this situation at auburn, the better Brian Hess, I guess that's his name. The better he looks and the worst university looks. I mean, they got a lot of nerve trying to. Hire a lancelot link secret chimp investigation trying to dig up dirt on this guy when the guy they want to bring in comes complete with his own dirt and I'm talking about he freeze. What do you think, Paul? Well, again, I can't add to that until he freezes hired and Brian harston is fired. But. Listen, I'm at a loss for words at this point because we really have no earthly idea. What they're looking into or why they're trying to manufacture a case. I don't care if you fire a coach, but if you don't, based on the fact that you don't think he's a good coach. And come out and say we made a mistake. We're correcting it. It happens in business every day of the year. Exactly. Pay the man what you owe him is sending him down the road. But they really look just it's really putting a bad line. It looks to me like they're trying to send you down the road and not paying. And that's a breach of contract and, you know, there's an old saying my family. Yeah, but that's typical. I mean, Tennessee tried to do that last year of Tennessee had written a check for what $13 million to Jeremy proth. They may have saved themselves a lot of aggravation, but they decided not to. And brought a lot of negativity to them. Randall is in Arkansas. Hey, Randall. Hello, Paul. How are you? Very well. Thank you. Paul, very proud to be a razorback today. I called to brag on the razorback athletic program. I believe that €100 check has got all the proper pieces in place for us to persevere. I watched a heck of a ball game last night. I think people know when you come in to say, you're going to have your hands full now. It's a very proud as a razorback. One more thing, Paul real quick. I noticed that you and I have become unique members of a club. I see this morning that GM block ten of us yesterday at one time. Oh, really? Yeah, you and I have 8 of your other regulars. Just block this all. So one of the I have now rejoined that club, I had to I had been allowed to see him on Twitter and now I'm in purgatory again. So well, so now that we got this club hall, we need to have meetings. We should. So at these meetings, there's going to be some drink. And there's going to be some fighting. And they'll probably be some sex. What you better hope, what you better hope is that you and I are the only ones that show up. Yeah, you're right. Listen, the list of people who have been, we should start doing, there should be a list every week of the personalities that have blocked the most people. And I disagree with some of my friends out there. I don't believe in that. If you want to follow us here on the program, you're going to follow us. And I am not going to be petty, but I've had other people who say if you criticize me, I'm putting it into it. So to me, it's a free country, you can do whatever you want. Yeah, don't block me. Just because I say something, you know why? The gym and I refined, but because of his bipolar situation, you can be fine on Monday and he'll hate you on Tuesday and don't even have to have a reason. So you think that's what it is. I've been racking my brain. There's so many different. Descriptions to make of his personality, but bipolar is a good one. I'm not going to quibble with that. That's what I'm thinking to. All right, Paul, you have a great day and we pick..

"The shot of him cut walking off the field rubbing his head was as classic as I've seen all year in college football. I saw harsh and twice in my weekend and auburn. He was on our show Friday, and we had him on our nation show Saturday morning. He seemed ready. He was ready and told the big moment came. And then he flied out blew it. He blew a couple of times, Matt, he quit being Brian harsh at the end of the game. I mean, he thought he could run the clock out on Alabama. He couldn't. He needed to, again, everything, Danielson went on AD nauseum about ten gives me not running out of bounds. He was thrown out of balance. I mean, it wasn't like he was and he's a big guy, but he was literally tossed out of bounds. And you have to blame him. I'm sure he was coach correctly, but there were a couple other decisions. And then on the fourth, I think it was the fourth down or third down when they got stuffed, maybe it was the third down. Yeah it was. You know, tries to try something. I mean, I know your quarterback's banged up, but you just can't sit there and try to run the ball. Alabama's defense, which has been questionable all year. Came to play in that game. And then finally, you survive. You get to overtime, you score, go for two. You've got it. You've got a shot at beating Alabama and you end the conversation. If you lose you lose, but his team was gassed, Alabama had been given a midnight pardon by the governor and go for it. And if you win it, you win it, but at least you tried. Paul, I haven't seen and you are so connected to this rivalry. I was watching the college football fan. You're watching it with legitimate connection to the state. I couldn't think of a time where ten nothing against Alabama for so long felt so secure. Bryce young couldn't do a thing. Auburn's defense had him running around. They were dominating Alabama's offensive line. They couldn't do a thing. Now, Alabama lost a player to targeting the best receiver. Brian Robinson was banged up. There were things in adverse to the price young had to get through. But this game for let's call it three quarters and 13 minutes was auburn's. And we were sitting there watching it and it was Jesse Joey and I had studio and when it was 32 and you had just alluded to it a second ago, and they lost four yards on third and two with two minutes around there forgive me for not knowing the exact time, but it was around that time. That was the they had the ball to put away Alabama. I looked at Joe and like Aubrey's about to put away Alabama. And they couldn't do it. They couldn't get the yards and you're right. Get creative there. Do something to get one and a half yards to take down Alabama in your first year as head coach of auburn and knock the tide out of the playoff. Bob, this is who Alabama is. We saw it against Florida. We saw it against LSU. We saw it against Texas a and M, maybe they just had one before that. And then they had one Saturday. They're gonna live dangerously. It's who this team is. They did it against Arkansas. You had a chance to take care of business for everyone and you didn't. No, and I'm not saying it was easier to do, but objectively, that's what you had to do. You had to start thinking, how do we get a yard? And it was just it was insane and this is a guy as he reminded me in our conversation Friday. He wanted a College Station a few weeks ago 6 and two. And controlled their own destiny. I mean, I'm not saying they could have worn out. Obviously, they lost out. And, you know, he has just burned his credibility to a crisp. You think. Well, I'm just saying I'm saying that, yeah, you'll hit the reset button at the end of the year, but he's not recruiting that well. And he blew the iron ball. I mean, and I'll go back to my Alabama roots. Yeah, that is a bad one. That's a bad way to start your career. I can assure you those who have blown the iron bowl in their first time out and there's one or two and I'm not gonna bore you with iron bowl history. Usually have had short visits. Yeah. And someone had hit me up last night on social media and they gave me the last three to four games of auburn and how they had not closed the deal or have been up in certain parts of the game. The one that's inexcusable to me. Iron bowl would be one with the Mississippi state. Oh, that's one that I would be incredibly concerned with. Because there are times if you look across the country, where my biggest concern if it were my team, if it were on a state and there's plenty of concerns for them anyway, they beat Arizona, which makes me sleep better. But I have my own concerns about them, but I would be beside myself if my team consistently couldn't put away opponents and that to me is Brian hartson's biggest issue coming out of year one is they have proven. They've got the ability to hold down Alabama, the potential Heisman Trophy winner for four quarters, but they can't put teams away. And that for those who didn't watch the game, this isn't a case of arbor on the verge of a fluke win. I mean, they were dominating the game as you mentioned. Any number of plays would have won it. And I'm trying to think back, that possession they just kneeled every time they would have been in better. They may have had a better shot at winning. But I have never seen anyone in college football, at least in recent memory. Had less time and do more with it than Bryce young. I mean, he used three seconds. I ran out of, I mean, I've ran out of fingers counting the number of plays that he had in that drive. He had the moment where if you wanted to look because I think the Heisman Trophy is so screwy this year anyway because of how we're looking at it, I think CJ Stroud kind of took himself out of it. But there just hasn't been the best place to be the best player in college football, right? Not the best stats in college football, but I digress. The way that Finn or the way that Bryce hit that pass to jacori Brooks, which by the way, who the hell's jacori Brooks, like of all the receivers? Sky we hadn't really heard of forgive me, Alabama, this is the guy that you've been waiting on to blow up. If all the weapons you have, I really hadn't heard of him. And he dropped a 28 yard pass perfectly. Brooks makes the catch and you're like, you knew that was gonna happen. Bryce young. I mean, you knew what was gonna happen. Everybody knew what was going to happen. And to me, I mean, nothing will ever exercise the demons of the kick 6, 8 years ago, but this was pretty close. Let's stay down south and stay in the SEC if we may since we've talked iron bowl and what will go down as historic because it was the first time as we had mentioned the second ago, they played over time. I.

"At 8 5 5 two four two 7 two 8 5. Let's check in with Owen in Washington. Good afternoon. Hey, Paul, thanks for taking my call. Happy Friday. Thank you, Owen. I'm really excited for staying down in this game and Don call station. Tomorrow, I think it's probably going to be the best matchup until the hour. So I'm looking forward to it. I wanted to run by. I was watching you and RG three the other day after the college football rankings came out. And he said something along the lines of this isn't the SEC invitational playoff or something like that. And I thought you very correctly indicated yes it is Robert. And what I got from that was that if you want to be ranked with these guys, you got to beat these guys. I myself wished Cincinnati made the top four, but they didn't. And I think the schedule argument is pretty fair in this case. And I literally just, he was talking, he was saying it like, you know, this is not about the SEC. I just definitely said yes it is. And what I mean by that is that you have the two best teams in the country and the SEC. And you have a lot of other really good teams like the two playing here tomorrow. And that was my only point. He was coming at you kind of hot yesterday. Yeah, well he was coming at me in a way that was saying, hey, hey, there are other schools that play football, which I am well aware of. I mean, I may have some fun on this program about the SEC. But when I'm on national television in the morning on ESPN, I'm not going to I realize it's the people in New York and LA they don't know what we know here, but I was just but I also don't want them to think that the SEC doesn't matter, because it does matter. And I run into that a lot where people almost just say, I just have this SEC fatigue and they just don't want to talk about it. But if you don't want to talk about the NBA, then they got to be yeah, you might as well start watching the NBA because college football right now is about the SEC. Absolutely. And I was just wondering what's in bigotry is going to be a big factor tomorrow. I think he's going to have a big game tomorrow. Good point. Hey, thank you very much for the call. Yeah, taking responsibility. You got to really ask what you call, and thanks, let me get my sheet back here. I lost it in the sun. And. Foster is up next. Good afternoon foster. What's up, Paul? Long time. How are you? Thank you, man. Hey, quick question. I'm going to make it quick. I saw some comments come out about Tony Franklin, I guess. You know, talking about Brian. There's about a month ago, having no backbone, you know, at this point in the season, does he kind of prove himself? And I guess I know you get a big game this weekend, more to come, but what are your thoughts on? I went back and listened to what Tony said and Tony was reacting to the firing of the wide receiver coach who happened to have played for him and I know Tony will, and I respect him and he's been here before, but, you know, I think Brian hartson doesn't have to prove himself to anyone at this point. He is doing it differently. And the results are obvious. He's already won a couple of games. I did not expect him to win. And tomorrow would be gravy. I know we're all getting carried away and auburn can still do this and still do that. And they can. But I think it's a legitimate conversation after tomorrow. I don't think it's really probably much of one today, but yeah, I said this the other day and I'll say it again. I mean, you change your vote every week. I want to be clear about that. But right now, I would vote Brian harsh and SEC coach of the year. Let's go. Or eagle Paul, thank you, where are you going? Thank you very much. Mary is up next. Hey, Mary. Go ahead. Good afternoon, mister fine bam. I hope you're doing fabulous. In fact, I see you're the in Texas a and M you know. I am a great I don't think the bamba fan I'm a little salty with what's going on first and foremost. So I want to start out my call positive. Holly robe, looking so beautiful. And she's been through breast cancer and now look at her. She looks young and vibrant and I love that she actually gets to be molded by. I mean, I'm a Nick chick, always have been, and the capability gap, that's brilliant. I am going to utilize that. I'm going to live by that. There's another thing. I will share with you. I listen to you every single day of my life. I love you, Paul find him. Salty with you at times. I just, the things you say and how you react, listen, Bama is a young team. Nick Saban said that from the very beginning. I think bright young has stepped up to the plate, he's amazing and all these people out there. I can't wait for the iron bull either because nobody has shown up yet. So let's make it happen. There is no contrary. Let me say one thing. I look at Alabama. I grade them on a very difficult curve. So I know you're a fan and I'm a fan of that program as well. But when Nick Saban is your coach and you have the talent that they have in that arsenal, there's no such thing as, well, this is a transitional year. They're expected to win every year. And they may not, and they don't. But they pretty much compete every year. And that's what makes them so remarkable. Thank you for the call. I have magical for that. Well, that's okay. We will continue this. We're heading to the break. We're in Aggie way, and we wanted to bring somebody on in a minute that I think is a personification of what this school is all about. Somebody I've known for a long time. He's the president and CEO of the former students. We'll explain what that is. And explain why this is such a unique place. All of that coming up next. We're live in College Station. You are listening to the Paul finebaum show podcast. And we welcome you back..

"But if henon hooker's out of lineup for an extended period of time, I get a little concerned about what their offense might be able to create down the stretch. Greg, what are you seeing and learning from the auburn tigers who have now two road wins against LSU and then it failed, they'll Saturday. I see why everybody self included was pretty dang fired up when Brian hartson arrived on the planes. This is a guy man that's just he's an incredible head coach. I don't know how else to describe it. Right now, they have weaknesses. This auburn team has weaknesses. They're far from a perfect product, but those weaknesses if they don't get addressed immediately, then Brian harsh is essentially going to step in and say enough's enough. And what we saw a couple of weeks ago, Paul was Brian making it difficult decision to fire his receiver coach in the middle of the year because that group as a whole was underperforming. Well, fast forward now a couple weeks and the wide receiver group is almost unrecognizable compared to where they were early in the season. And what that wide receiver group has done, it has filled bow nicks up with a ton of confidence. He's now anticipating throws. He's able to lead guys to where they're running, throwing it to spots on the field and allowing the receivers to run under it because he trusts that the wide receivers will get there. That group's improved drastically. I think the offensive line, while it's not an elite groups on overpowering group, they've done a good job of helping that offensive line with some of the looks in the formations that they've used these last couple of weeks, and then defensively, they have some elite playmakers at the second level and they're letting those guys play free. The pass rush is still a little bit of an issue. And I think the situation last week helped them an awful lot. Arkansas was on the heels of a three game stretch that was just a gauntlet. So I think it definitely was going to be a really difficult game for Arkansas to win. But how can you not be impressed with what you've seen from auburn up to this point? If you're really categorizing and looking at how things are unfolding right in front of us, if you're looking at a potential SEC coach of the year, Brian is on the short list. At this point, with what he's done with a roster that's thin and lacks talent in certain very important spots and with the progress that we've seen from bow nicks here over the last few weeks since he was sat down at Georgia state, how much better he's gotten from that point forward. There's an awful lot to like with the trajectory that auburn's programs currently on, but obviously tough test this week, tough test next week against old myths. So all that's been done well can be undone rather quickly if they don't continue to improve. Greg does it matter who's quarterbacking Georgia? Yes, Paul. It might not matter with all due respect to the likes of who they've played up to this point, no disrespect to Kentucky. Kentucky's just overmatched. They just don't have the personnel. They don't have the horses to be able to keep up when George is playing against the likes of say Alabama. Yeah, it's absolutely matter. And I think sets a good option. I really do. I think he has really probably taken way too much heat. And people give him a hard time about his height and the amount of tipped passes last year, but the last I checked, he went into halftime last year with the lead against Alabama and Tuscaloosa. So it's not like this guy's chopped liver. He's a really good player and he looks better this year is better command this year. However, I think I'd be naive in saying that JT Daniels isn't the most talented option. I think he is. But stetson Ben is extremely good and unless JT Daniels. And I've said this a hundred times Paul and people are well, JT's got to be the guy. He's got to be as soon as he's back. He's got to be thrust in the lineup. Heck no. Stetson Bennett the guy until I know for a fact that JT Daniels is at a 100% because JT and anything less than a 100%. Anything less than say 95% that stetson Ben might actually be the better option. JT Daniels at a 100%, that's embedded at a 100%. JT's the better option. But until we know for sure, the JT is at a 100% and can be accurate with the football. It won't be limited by the pain that he's dealt with during this injury, then I think you have to continue to put stetson out there because he's playing good football and he's done so against some really good competition in the last few weeks. Greg mcelroy always great to have you on thanks, Greg. See you next week. Greg mcelroy joining us from his cabin there with all the X's and O's. We will take a break, more to come, the guys and a few minutes. We have been all over the place talking about Edo and Tennessee and really a comprehensive look at the SEC right there from G Mac.

"When you watch a game we always talk about. There's four or five plays the decide the game and in this case. it wasn't any different and watching armored. Come out you know. Have the white face masks and all that stuff look after the first play that goes to window. Starting offensively. i'd i'd i don't understand why take big. V wasn't more involved in the first half and by the way the trust they have in dark was hunter speaking of auburn to be able to put him in that situation and let him you know operate the way he did shows you how much trust they happen and how much talent they think he has auburn's offensive line struggled to to run to rhumba. Coming tank ended up with one hundred two yards. But he's getting hit. One two yards passed. The line of scrimmage auburn just doesn't have the personal front for anybody to thought rooms going to go up there and dominated or anything like that. You can't brian hartson doesn't have the ability to three d print offensive linemen and that's where auburn's gonna struggle. I thought and pass protection. There are a little better than i thought they'd be on the edges though whenever they were isolated. There is a bunch of times where there were just run throughs. Oranges doesn't have the guys on. The offensive line's just the truth to be able to set the pace and you saw a couple drives where tank hit a couple zone runs. A couple perimeter runs which which i thought they could have gone more to but in the first half. I was surprised. I was surprised that they didn't go tank a little bit more. And that him really get into one of those rhythms that he gets into. You saw it in the second half a little bit on a couple of days drives but i was very surprised by that now watching bo knicks met a couple of good those made a couple questionable throws but he doesn't have a ton of help wide receiver guys just going to tell you you know you. You look at.

"Today that's geico dot com. Welcome in find bombers elissa lang. Dreyer carter here with you out of pocket tonight. Seven o'clock right here on the sec network and we have a jam packed show. But we're also gonna talk about where we were at last weekend. I was at missouri kentucky. You were in auburn for the first time. And i think there's some takeaways for both of us from our respective matchup stray. I was so impressed. With the way kentucky came out and performed getting that dub but on the other side too you know a lot of people will talk about. How kentucky truly did have the momentum for most of that game on saturday night but eli drink wits and that missouri team answered every single. Blow that kentucky through with them that night. That was a great way to start the conference season in lexington but kentucky's for real and if the chips fall certain ways i could not would not be surprised to maybe see them vying for second. Maybe i in the sec's. i spent. I spent some time with chris. Rodriquez earlier in the season spent a lot of time with him. You interviewed him after the game. But what did you see from him. He fumbled he bounced back. And when you talk to them after the game just what kind of field you get from him. He is such a humble dude. And i know we talked about that last week with your piece. He is one of those leaders that you want on your football team first of all because you mentioned it. He fumbled the football. In what could have been really that dagger touchdown going into half. Then he comes out in the second half and absolutely makes up for it. He had a career high and carries that night. We thought he was going to have four touchdowns. He fumbled one. That cox felons technically only has three touchdowns but he talked about it after the game. Hey you know when kasey smoke maybe put the ball on the ground on his face making sure that he knows what he's supposed to do what he's capable of. He said smoke did the same exact thing. So that's a one two punch tandem. I know you love and the rest of big blue nation does do well speaking of one two punch tandem and running back. That's what i saw from auburn auburn. When you talk about tank bixby right. He's kind of that veteran. He's strong he can get through the holes and just power through darkwa. Hunter is a freshman that was dominant. I mean he had a ninety three yard touchdown run. Set the record for longest touchdown run in auburn history. Such a humble guy right. And and i was really impressed by auburn because you know coach. Hartson challenge them after week. One challenged their second secondary and challenge their special teams and then they come out against alabama state huge plays on special teams blocked blocked field goal and they had know interception pick six just the coverage the way that he challenged the team. They responded and did exactly what he wanted them to do. Now alabama state wasn't the strongest of opponents but to still come out an answer. What your coach calls you to do. Even against the lesser opponent. And i think a big deal and for auburn to put up the sheer amount of points that they put us through the first two weeks of the season. That's gonna give any team confidence but it's great timing for an auburn team. That's now going into an insane environment. Dre up in penn state. It's going to be a big test for that football team. But in talking to brian hartson and talking to the guys after that game did you get a sense for how confident they are going on the road against an opponent like that. I think they are confident because they have a strong run game. I think you know. Their quarterback is steady and he's got a show consistency but he's done that so far and then they have a lot of confidence in their defense. I mean just the defense and energy. And i think as a unit they feel like they have a complete team. Something that will talk about tonight out of bucket. Yeah we're going to get into that game. Of course obama florida going down in up. We have a jam packed. Show like we said. But i'm really excited for the guests that were having on tonight. Lane kiffin excellent king of twitter. You took a stroll through his twitter page yesterday. Would i love the rat. poison. I love the re tweets. I love how he even shows support for some of the sec coaches just quote seat with a heart rate. It's simple but it's strong. His presence on twitter henry toyoto. Yeah yeah we got. Joe is coming on the show. Alabama defensive guy who of course helps make that unit take. I'm just you you mentioned re tweets in rat poison and a half to pump this. Yeah we are literally going to play a game called re tweet or rat poison. We lane kip and get to know coach. A little bit better. Maybe talk. Matt corral heisman university in just a little bit re tweet irap poison and everyone's favorite artists right now. Walker hayes on a date not gonna sing. I'm not going to sing on the show.

"That because the public public likes the over. The money loves the under. Like from our in penn state alabama florida as well because again freshman quarterback in a in a spot that he's never experienced before plus elite defense on alabama bad quarterback for florida. I love the under love. The under history with i can put up at least twenty one. You think that alabama can't cover the rest of that. I mean thirty-five twenty-one doesn't cover it. That's so i just I think the base question here for this game is who plays the most a quarterback for florida. I think emory jones well. Because i think he's gonna mullen likes seniority like experience. And even even though emma jones doesn't have a whole lot of experience experience he's at least got a lot of experience in the system. I think he's writing with that guy now. We'll see anthony richardson. And if he pops off like he's been popping off maybe he stays in but if he doesn't. I think you're gonna see a lot of emery emery jones. Yep now. Auburn is just the big mystery because auburn fans no is not a mystery. I'm not even gonna try to play political science here. Why the fuck is auburn. Ranked number twenty two. Why is auburn ranks wanting to because they started to against alabama state in akron. Because bonex is off to a great start. The offense has great stats. Defense grace yeah. You played alabama state and akron. There's nothing about. This team is the twenty second best team in the country. They're about to go on the road to a team. That's already gone on the road. Wisconsin and won a huge game. They're going to go into wideout. Bonuses road splits are terrible. He's a bad road quarterback. Brian hartson's i huge atmosphere at auburn. I don't see any reason. Penn state doesn't win this game three touchdowns. Katie was nine with that. Take no my place. I tweeted out just like look early. Lines i was really confused. I thought this would have been closer to seventeen. Fourteen point for penn state whether you believe it or not. I had auburn fans. Dmz the scores. And like i settled make desert. They could earn their spot right now. They haven't done anything approve it but we know that penn state has and like again. Graham merz is clearly not what we thought. He was for like a second last year. But i mean wisconsin we There was a top fifteen matchup. Auburn's played anybody. And i understand completely this why we make fun of rankings. This is why. I had the the texas fans who were like. We lost two ranked arkansas team. Well yeah no shit rank now because you were overweight overrated ua ranked then they beat you so now they're ranked so what does auburn have to prove. How are they twenty. They haven't beat anybody that was ranked. I don't understand it. I just you know if all goes on the road and stays within three points this team or beats this team obviously. I'm wrong about them. But i just nothing. I've seen how the album program recently tells me. They're going to go on the road. At penn state penn state might not be good penn state a fraud to they might be a sham. But i just. I just like auburn to be overwhelmed by this whiteout and atmosphere what about sean clifford versus the auburn defense. Because we know that auburn always gets dudes and i know. It's brian hudson's first year and a blah blah blah. Whatever but you the sec caliber defense versus a quarterback who did struggle against wisconsin better defense. An auburn and wisconsin was on the road. So i'm thinking clever. It's good enough at home. That is not going to matter i. He's got japan datsun. One of the best receivers in the country. He'll be fine. Count like the under hair to these. These defenses slugging it out honestly at this point with any big ten team. I just my brain is just like you got him. You have to know how state no i know. But that's my. That's where i'm struggling with a brandon. It's like a. There's like a a chemistry in my brain that's just not working on cautious mystic or cautiously bullish on offer for what. They're just an unknown like street. I i'm guessing that they're not gonna be good. They're you're guessing they are going to be good. It's completely unknown. I agree with the unknown. Yeah i wanna see this game. I'm not and when i say cautiously. I really i i mean but as we should on bonex and whatnot i mean. This is what his third year as a starting quarterback. He's betting rockets environments. This one will be rockets. I think penn state's good too. But i think auburn deserves the number twenty two ranking and i think they're probably a top twenty team this year. I could be completely wrong now so it will be the first be the first real test of them. This season w. what the prime time white out game and happy valley is pretty exciting. Why deserve the twenty two ranking. When they were unranked to start the year they beat two teams that we're going to beat. Always what what. What earns them that. I think i would have kentucky. And that's about auburn in that spot. I guess it's just because other teams have lost so they're like well point differential. what is arizona state on their nineteen arizona. State was like they were. I think they were like twenty five or twenty four when it started so there isn't really jumped out. Auburn was was out. And then we put in for beating alabama state in akron. Yeah well there is teams that have fallen out right and they were probably in receiving votes. So they're probably twenty seven twenty eight and i mean again. We're talking about product people falling out. I think and it doesn't matter because we're going to see if they're a good team this weekend. Cincinnati minus three and a half at indiana. If indiana has anything about you this is what are you made of game. This is a. Are you what you thought you were. Are you what i thought. You are. Thought you were a fraud. I thought you were fake. I thought you were phony. I thought you a product of schedule last year. That didn't really challenge you. And now you face a legitimate top team and cincinnati has got their own things to prove they got their own things to prove. They gotta go on the road. In the regular season power. Five opponent may have a chance to indiana and get a good win for the program. This is a fascinating game because three and a half tells me the book wants me to bet on cincinnati. It tells me the wants me to put my money on cincinnati because they like indiana. It's interesting because indiana played. They got killed in iowa killed but their defense was pretty good their defense to two hundred yards. They had to pick sixes..

"The only thing that will get him off the field problems combined with a mediocre season. He has off the field issues. But i think you'll have a big year. I think they can win. Nine or ten games. I think the coach on the hot seat conversation needs to be tabled for another day. That's real you guys agree. Yeah for sure aba championship. Two years moment. I put puppy breaks all the people here talking about all in nineteen nineteen nineteen. So i think you'll live off of that no matter how. Lsu does this year you take one national championship for sure. All right real or not real with. Brian hartson of auburn. After of course some controversy already there with him. Yeah i mean he. He hasn't even coached a game yet. Guys i don't mean to you know he. He's inherited a pretty average. Left behind by gus malzahn. He's been criticized by some. But i think auburn people like him and they won't be great this year but i think that he will get a reasonable leash. Yeah i agree with that. He just got there right. I mean he's got the you don't get fired after year when you got there especially with your history of winning previous programmes fair enough. Got it make the list. I'm just reading real or not real reason. For this one lincoln riley will he be at oklahoma. After after this season in two thousand twenty two. I thought he went the cowboys a couple years ago watching. Espn and everybody was including me. By the way i will be there. Lincoln riley has found his niche. He is one of the great quarterback whisperers in in recent college football history. And i cannot imagine him leaving especially now that oklahoma was heading to the sec. Yeah i think that's real as well. There's been talk for years of lincoln riley becoming the air parent for the cowboys and for years rally. His stayed in one big twelve championship after big twelve championship after big twelve championship you call. At and t. stadium. His second home been told media. Because that's how many times they've played there in one there. And so yeah. Lincoln riley out think is going anywhere an hour outside of going to the i mean in the bar. The bars low right like you know. We think that they want to win a national championship. But he can do that job for the next twenty years. Collect the bag if you go. You fail as a cowboy. you know. Hey coach you'll curriculum. You'd never be able to go back and get that bag right so jerry jones. You know he. He may go tired of you in three years. He can do for the next twenty years. They'll never fire. It's that rare guys. If you want to start firing mccarthy alan if you want to start firing mccarthy. I'm good without stick around for a couple more. Well wait you see what's coming at the end of this. How about this real or not real that. This coach will be at his current program in twenty twenty two ryan day lower state. That's a good one because he is coveted by the nfl. But i think it's real and you. Can you could add some of what we said about lincoln riley. Everyone talks about nick. Sabin recruiting brian. Day right now is recruiting at the same level as nick sabin in alabama. And i can't. I can't imagine why he would leave right now just to go take a garden variety. Nfl job that will likely last two or three years to me is not worth it He has moved into urban. Meyer spot up there and you know what i. He has not won a national championship yet. But i think he's done a better job in his short tenure there than urban meyer did in the last three or four years at ohio state. Take everything paul feinban said and slide it over. What i'm about to say like that everything you just said ryan day Has taken over for how there's been no drop off no drop off and so There are a lot of college coaches that go to the nfl obermeier right now in san okay. Is this really what i signed up for. It is really gonna work out there. The coaches who have stayed been happy. And i think ryan is one of those coaches is gonna stay. Be happy now. There's a reason why we had that on this list because we have a bonus real or not real for you paul. You want me to fire people. Let's do it so let's go. i'm ready let's go with urban meyer real and not real. He'll be with his program in twenty twenty two. Of course that would be the jaguars. Oh man i love to say. I love to get him fired before he coaches again he will be there because urban urban usually hangs in there for a couple of years before everything starts overwhelming him. So that's real now. If you ask me in two or three years we have different story but He will be back next year. Yeah absolutely he'll be there he just got there. He's a rebuild in jacksonville. We all know that first overall quarter man israel in a prissy gets. It's a rebuild right now. Will he be there. Twenty four or five probably not. I mean he's again. I give them two years because we used to be able to get the best players and you realize that you know this is the nfl. You're in a lot of free agents. Don't wanna go there only thing. Great about jacksonville is to pool in no state taxes than you know. He realized that he's not gonna be able to attract the type of player. She needs to be successful. Believe we're on in jacksonville. Looked a little duval though. He's a great comedian. But still i had to throw that one in there though for your paul because i just know how much you.

"Tuesday afternoon. Greg is up next. Greg good afternoon. Hey paul how you doing today gregory or well thank you for asking. Well you call me right in the middle of store. I didn't think i was going to get through this. Quick warm brought idea. Noah that called in yesterday was displaying young man. That was at the last time you were all auburn on the stage. That kinda stole the show. I don't think i do remember that guy. That kid was was amazing Ah he did the didn't they sing the the call paul song or or something like that he did. He sang that. And i was. I was there at at the show. There and i was kind of a maze. I figured well maybe this was him. It was called in on your pretty intelligent. I was really concerned about that. Young man. that day You know it's one thing to to screen something out while we're off the year but w- how is he going to handle the moment and it was it was it was the guy. Never blinked an eye age but But he how was called ask you was What do you think pat. Dye would have thought or thought about the brian harsh. You know him. You've been around. You interviewed him a lot In fact i. I would love to get that last year. We had where i was the. I don't think i can answer that. Until i get a better understanding of what brian hartson looks like defensively. And i say that jokingly because pat dye if you didn't play defense and special teams he didn't care about you. He was the all time traditionalist. He thought that's the way the sec should be played. And it didn't matter so i i don't think he probably would like the derek mason higher. I i will say this. And i've only been around hartson wants And that was two weeks ago and harsh. I think he would alike. The steely eyed. Serious -ness of brian harrison. Which i do like. I don't know what he's going to be like as a coach. I worry about his recruiting Ability in the sec because it is a different world than what he's used to. But but i think. I think coached. I would've liked that. Yeah you know. And just wondering if he had been on the coaches recruiting tour that he would even gave him the time to think about you. Know Coming to auburn just curious what you thought about that. Yeah coached i. Was you know he was so hardened in in the in the football he grew playing in georgia and then later what would he learned and people forget. He spent nine years in tuscaloosa under coach bryant. A lot of football out there. If you go to some of the Barbecue places birmingham and around the state. You'll see him with a coach brian Hunting together. yeah interesting. That picture I have that picture up at and it is one of the greatest pictures i've ever seen. That picture was was taken. I believe by birmingham news photographer. Right after coach die got to auburn coach. Coach bryan invited him down. I think it was his lodge to To go hunting in the main reason was to try to probably work over but but that is such a classic picture and A lot of you have seen it. But if you haven't it's it's it's one of the greatest pictures i've ever seen last thing. Want to ask you. What did you ever go to any tennessee. Album games at legion fails. Yes in The first time. I went to an alabama tennessee game was when i was a Believe i was a junior in college. And i will tell you. It was one of the most exciting things i've ever ever ever been to. Because i had not been to legion field before and to be there for obama tennessee game and i see many of them. I mean alabama played tennessee at legion field. I believe in till eighty seven or eighty nine. Remember when the last one was but Yeah i saw peyton lead the lead the band In it was either eighty five or eighty seven. I can't remember what year it was. Well i tell you if you remember some of those banners that Tennessee fans got see on the way back homework. So kind of mean spirited there but It'll be interesting to see that Maybe played again down the future with some of those robberies there. Well thank you for the call. Gregory was great to go. I would give it. I mean there are so many people that you encounter in your life You would always like to have one more interview with. But but i could interview coached i every every day and i will tell say the last two times we were with him and auburn one night It wasn't the last one. It may have been the next to the last one. I would rank it among the the the most riveting thirty or forty minutes i've ever encountered on this show. We we just went back in time and it had to be reminded to to go to the break. Because i mean i did not want to stop him. He was he was sitting up there on the stage with us and It was priceless anyway. We'll take a few more calls here as we continue. Johnny will try. Johnny one more time here johnny going on. Hey paul thanks for having me thank you so i was wondering how do you think the tech scene mtm is going to do without kelham on well i. I know that they John jimbo has not named a starter yet. But i think most people out there have a pretty good idea where it's going. I think they'll be okay. I i think. I think that is a that is an untested position..

"So we are back in good news. Finally for miles brennan tweeting out today. That the surgery for his arm has gone. Well thank you all for all the prayers. Scott me so tough time for miles. Hopefully he will be back sooner than some of the early reports. Let's get back to the calls here at eight five five two four two seven. Two eight five in brendon is up next. Hello brendan apl. How are you. We are doing great. Thank you yeah first. Time caller Actually i have a few questions. Two of them are more serious than one's a little bit more lighthearted. Sure if you don't mind absolutely go go right ahead so The first question. I have You actually partially answered and debunked it. But i was curious about the timing of the leak of the oklahoma in texas. Joining the sec. I thought originally it was just kind of like a ploy at the end of media. Days to kind of just increase the attention but You said that it might have been almost out of spite. Based on the call you had with the gentleman from texas rate. Yeah brennan story was was percolating. I'm not saying many people Were aware of it. But but a handful were a couple of days out. And i think it was a matter. I mean i will say this there. I know one person that that was concerned that the the rumor would get out the previous week during big twelve media days. It did not. Which showed you how few people were aware of it. By the time we got to the week of the sec media days it was it was out there a little more. Now i will tell you. I was there so i it was not. It was not being bounced around very much but a handful of people were talking about it but there was very little way to to really do anything with it. i mean most. Most people there were responsible media people. And we're going to just throw something up against the wall. However by wednesday afternoon when the story broke the story broke it three forty local time it it was making the rounds and then the the fact that it broke literally as jimbo fisher was taking the stage helped fuel speculation got you brings ornament about it and you know. He gave the answer That he'd been working on it and he picked it up working on something else and the story came from someone that he knew very well. Now none of that really matters the story. Obviously the story was right so it really does it. Does it matter where it came from. It was coming out eventually right. Yeah there's definitely a lot of moving pieces to it so The other question. I've got is about bryant carson. You know you spoke to another gentleman alabama about him and What you might think about. His potential interview was pat dye. If he was still here. But have you been paying attention to the culture that he's building it auburn. you know. there's footage of him Running stadiums with the players. And things like that Being really meticulous and he's obviously very different from coach malzahn when he was there So do you have any thoughts about that. Culture is bill. I do and i and i i will tell you on one level brendan. I like it we've talked to him a number of times and and he he never. He never varies always to the point. He's different and i say that and i don't mean that to sound the wrong way but he is You know you you. You bring someone from that area of the country into alabama don't know don't forget pat dye was it wyoming before he went to alabama. He just happened to be from georgia though and played play georgia and coach at alabama. But but i think carson is doing the right things i my only concern is whether forget beyond the culture to compete. You have to be able to attract a high caliber player in huge numbers. That is my only my only question. But beyond that i like it. I like what i'm saying. I mean this guy is a serious football coach. He when i sat with him two weeks ago he had a lot of confidence. And sometimes you don't see that when somebody's making their their maiden voyage to sec media days. He felt like he belonged there right. Yeah he definitely seems to be making the right statements. He's making the right activities. You know opening practice during the spring Trying to gain that attention. And you know recruiting may be slow at first. But i think and i'm hoping that his culture is what really sells the program. I hope ultimately brendan and i know. I'm getting a little ahead of myself. But i do. Have some concerns that if things don't go well i know i'm sounding like a negative. Nellie here Where is the university. The university's going through transition You know they have an interim president. He will not be there much longer because the former president was tossed out The athletic director. Alan green took a gamble. He went against the old guard as you. Well know and as a student of auburn history over these past thirty five years that can be a dangerous path right so Do not need me to translate right right but that will. That will not interfere with what. Brian hartson does on the football field. I think he has carte blanche right now He has a good staff and that has been talked about. But but i thought bring bring in the to coordinators. He did was very smart as opposed to just doing with some coaches. Do and say. I'm bringing my entire staff whether you like it or not he he. He knew better than to try that right right. Yeah he's been very methodical in. Its approach and i can relate to that very well but Yeah hopefully it continues in the uptrend because he seems to be doing things right so far i i think he's a man of high High integrity. I think he is going to do it. His way whether it stubborn or or at a principle i don't know because i don't know him well enough but i think i think i i am fascinated by him. I will say that. I'm fascinated by the culture down there and how it meshes with him. I know the fans are excited. And i think they should be but fans are usually excited with a new coach and But but there are some concerns And i will elaborate a little bit more some other time about you. Know what he what he will face. But it's it is worth remembering though that The decision to bring him in by the athletic director took a lot of guts. He went he he. He really spit in the face of a lot of the most important and influential people that run that university and i mean run that university. We'll take a break More to come.

"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.

"We have breaking news here on the program from radio row. That is brian hartson. He could end up being the last person standing. He's he's a he's an. Sec football coach. He still here he he draw by here about an hour ago. I listen. I admire him. He is still here first. Time around hasn't met a lot of people. And there is some precedent that other coaches hypo and others. This week Did show schmoozing metoo. Steve spurrier his first media. Days played golf with the media. Nobody has done that since. Jim kavala joining us. So great to have you back from influence or and we are now at twenty two days inch and i'll launched in. We're curious since you live here. We're glad you could drop by and tell us how it's going. What's interesting is the first few weeks of multi decade marathon. And i think a lot of people want a lot of answers even down to which athletes are doing the bass which schools are doing the best but really we have a set of qualitative data. We've got some good anecdotes and stories of athletes embracing this. And you know i think. Sec athletes are doing really well because they're in a lot of states that had bills so those schools were preparing and getting ahead of this and it's One of those things. Those student athletes really don't know where to start. And and so. We're trying to help them the best we can. And we've seen a lot of the first day when all this was preplanned prepackaged we heard what sabin said to stay about bryce show. And i wanna ask you about that because it's a message that recruits. I'm sure well we're gog over but others have not what you're trying to help. Young people get some benefit. But when you hear a story like one player who has not started yet could be making more than a million dollars. What is your reaction. That's the quarterback at the university of alabama. That's my reaction. I mean we're talking about five hundred thousand student. Athletes and four hundred ninety nine thousand nine hundred are probably gonna make four figures at best because this is available to them but there's going to be one hundred that are going to do really really well they're probably gonna be another nine hundred. That are gonna make five figures. Maybe maybe somewhere between five and six figures but the real story here with athletes is. They're learning that performance. Plays a part in this. And then branding initiative plays a part in this and so the better you perform you create more opportunity for yourself. But then you've got to do a good job telling your story on social media going out there. And actually making money with your. This is a business so you get out what you put in this. This is just like playing time. This is just like being leading score. This is just like anything else. That's hard or extraordinary. It takes initiative. They're gonna learn that when they see some peers. Do really well with this. And they might not and motivate them to take this more seriously jim. Let's take our composite. You see a lot of. I don't want to violate anyone's confidence or your relationship. But let's just look at a one of these average deals and what happens. And what does that person have to do. And then how is it measured so the deal continues. Yeah so first of all just for you know. Bigger picture thought we we've had more than one. Thousand athletes report transactions thus far through their influence or app and. That is something that i find interesting. It's also more than one thousand. Unique athletes have reported actually more than two thousand transactions so the average athletes do more than one transaction but the average transactions less than one hundred dollars less than one hundred dollars right. So you're talking about a lot of in-kind transactions right a free meal a free t shirt something like that that they still have to report because there's a value to it and they weren't allowed to accept that before and i al became a thing now they can but they have to report it and so whether it's an athlete getting hit up through direct message on their social media from a company in their area. Saying hey we would like you to promote our restaurant. If you post something while you're in on your social media we'll give you a gift card for one hundred dollars. They go in there. They're able to get a free meal or get a gift card. They posted an instagram story of themselves in their tag the restaurant. And that's the transaction. They have to report. And that's going to be a common transaction at the same time. There are athletes gaming this. They're creating a logo putting it on a t. Shirt selling it online. Ecommerce store tagging that in their social media the reporting those transactions as they come in. They're making money that way but then they're saying hey when i do cameos. I'm gonna wear that same shirt in my cameo videos to activate the logo and they're starting podcast where they have access that even you in the media position urine don't have their player there an athlete they can do a really cool podcast and get access share stories and i think you see a lot of athletes do that so those are the ones gaming it but that's what it looks like on the podcast because my dog this my is starting our podcast beginning. I i listen to podcasts. You do but at some point. How how does that work. Ration- a couple that are multi million-dollar podcast. But if the offensive lineman at arkansas starts podcast. Yeah the arkansas fans that might sample it. But i think five heavy measure it i think five ten fifteen thousand dollars to that lineman is actually a significant amount of money number one. It's a significant spark to something outside of sports for his career and once again his level of access. Jj radic has a great podcast. It's called the old man and the three and this guy goes around as he travels plan. Nba games in the sixteenth or whatever veteran season. He's in the nba and he.

Hanging out was this luke bryan. Is that what it is is jacob. Yes is luke bryan indeed knowing what do you think him. Finebaum kind of a road forum. Just can you imagine what. What do you think. Paul finebaum would be a rhody for. You think he'd be like. I'm not missing a single concert. I don't think look. Bryant's on that list. Treating paul finebaum is right now. He's in hartford connecticut for the luke bryan concert tonight. You think he is. That's how he rolls. I don't want to disclose information but like it's possible. That would be great. I would just i'm trying to. I think he's more of a john test guy right. I don't know of yani yani alive. I should probably google that before. I bring it up I don't know if he he does concerts. I think tesche might probably still does. I'm not quite sure a five to four two. Paul is the phone number. You can give us a holler there. That's eight five. Five to four to seventy to eighty five. Hit me up on twitter at peter burns. Espn been talking a little bit about what's going on with sec media days and again. I ask the question if you give truth serum to any one coach. Who do you think you're gonna learn the most from and i think eli drink wits ally drink which is fantastic over missouri. I think that he's got a ton of personality. The more people get an opportunity to meet him in. Listen to them. I think you're gonna come away impressed. And i think that you know i had sabin. Who's on the top of my list. Just because i've got so many questions to ask him about how name of jim image and likeness is going to work out bright immediate eligibility in the conference. How does he like that The vaccine and how is he handling that with his players. I mean so many questions and in coach save. And i think that's the reason why if we ever had kind of a quote unquote commissioner of sports. As our college football sabin would be a natural at it. Because i think that when he talked he's like e f hutton when he talks people listen and you know he's earned that respect is one of the greatest of all time. And you know. I would be really intrigued to about brian harsono. I i think a lot of auburn fans are still trying to figure out who brian hartson is. I mean they know. He's the coach at boise state. But what does he mean like. What what what is he going to bring and i. I got a feeling that that's going to be one of the big stars. Coming out of next week's media days is when people and i've i've listened to a lot of his stuff. A lot of his talks tried to consume as much. Every time i've listened to him. I came away blowed away with what he had to say and i think he brings that same passion to hoover at media days. All right we got genius going to join us in fifteen minutes. Your phone calls. We'll open up at the top.

"Welcome you back. And it's always great to welcome justin ferguson. Back to our program. What is going on the plane. We've talked about georgia and bama and of course the nick sabin news. Brian hartson about to take on his first season. In the sec. Justin thank you for being with us good afternoon and give us a lay of the land down there How are things going under the new coach. Yeah it's a it's a new era down here for sure. I think we're already starting to see some of the effects of it You know with. Brian hartson the way things are going about business. Here at auburn it's They wanted to have a kind of culture change From the gus malzahn regime. They wanna do things differently. And he's bringing the you know that hard nose hard work style that Boise state was really known for when he was up there You know in the mountain west for several seasons and they've been people who've kinda like and did To win You know when when pat dye made made his way down to offer just a different kind of culture. Different mentality than what we've seen from the past decade and it's it's really interesting. I mean there. There are a lot of little aspects of the program that have changed The way they've done workouts the way they went through practices in the spring and really the way they're recruiting as well with With everything opening up this past week For in person recruiting. We've seen auburn a lot of guys on campus for unofficial visits and official visits we seen them cast a pretty wide net They've had They've had visitors for really from all over the place specific north west up in new york. State some guys out in the south west and the midwest and so it is a really different kind of perspective here for for auburn papa. That's really what alan green and and the auburn administration set out when they hired him. As you know with with brian arson is that For auburn To compete in the sec at a really high level They're gonna try to do some do some things differently. When you're going up against behemoth like alabama and georgia being your top two rivals. Jesse you talked about a culture change and certainly when die showed up there. It was hard nose relentless somewhat similar to the early days of paul. Brian how would you describe the culture permeating the air around ryan harrison. Yeah i think those are two words it really kind of really set. The tone for what we are seeing under brian harsher and this is a team. That's gonna want to win. At the line of scrimmage going to be team's gonna run the ball downhill Defense is going to be very attacking. Derek mason is such a great mind on that side of the ball but they wanna win up front and you know one of the big things we saw in the spring that was such a change From talking to players was the auburn did their workouts. A lot more You know kind of we kinda more power stuff That they were working on but their strength training then compared to what they did you know in the last couple of administrations auburn And guys said they felt different. Felt strongly felt felt copper. And it's that mentality that they're trying to bring into place me They started summer workouts. Here this past weekend. I mean we're hearing stories about You know getting up really really early for for these workouts and how hard the strength and conditioning staff or pushing them and it's just it's a different it's a different mindset. It's a different way to go about it You know there were elements of the gus. Malzahn era auburn could be really physical. Really smash mouth But this is kind of like a top down approaching kind of everything they wanna do They wanna go kind of all business with it. And and and i think You know they're there. Everything is trying to set up for over to be this team. That wants to win. At the line of scrimmage and be strong and be able to be very. I think multiple and varied both on offense and defense So that if you win. At the line of scrimmage you can do a variety of things and your backfield's They can keep the other team off balance because as good as auburn is as a recruiter. you know alabama georgia lsu texas. Usually i mean those are schools play every single year. That usually your crew better than you. So armee is gonna try to figure out ways to overcome those talent gaps With with this style of of football the arson prefers as bringing down from boise. justin You can't take anything. Away from coach develops players. They don't have to all be five star top ten top fifteen top twenty players. Although we we we we do see when save and gets those players. He does win. But but i'm curious because there as you know you're covered the team. There are people who are concerned about the type of players. That hartson and his staffer recruiting. Are they good enough. Unless they're developed to a high level. How how does auburn compete with those players against kirby smart in nick sabin the big exchange and the big experiment. Here with with brian. Hartson is that. He developed a reputation of boise state for being a great talent developer And you know was guys who were low rated recruit to noon walk on into early round picks in the nfl draft. Now you bring them in auburn where your talent level is naturally gonna be higher auburn recruits out of top fifteen level pretty much every single year has been and in the modern recruiting rankings. That's the area where over needs to get at and they need to be. They have gotten kinda playing behind the eight ball. The twenty twenty two class because You know they couldn't go out on the road and recruit like everybody else does. But i've always said that auburn is one of those schools that really really relies on that. Maybe more so than other powerhouses because they don't have that. Nfl reputation like an alabama and georgia. They don't have the championships. they can just point to easily so auburn. Always wants to bring guys on campus and show them the difference and so one of the interesting things. We've seen early on from brian arson. Is that you know they are getting some guys early in these commitments and some of these transfers. They've gotten commitments from that are from smaller schools. Kind of lower graded guys. Who have the skill set team fits that they want to coach them up. But i think long term. Everybody knows that to survive in the sec. You have got to recruit at a really really high level. And so i i you here in this first recruiting class for brian hartson. It'd be very interesting that a star studded very massive class. Because of what auburn's done in the you know on the transfer portland what they're going to kind of continue to do But this is about setting a foundation. The building that culture building those bridges inviting kids And establishing those relationships schools and say hey in the twenty twenty one season we're gonna show. This is what the new era of football's all about. And so that in twenty twenty two when you get a full cycle so to speak when you're able to go out and recruit and bring kids on campus from the very beginning You've able to hit hard. And we know that Locally here in alabama It's a twenty three classes very loaded With talent so. I think it's gonna be interesting if they can establish pay. This is what we look like and know that even though this might not be you know a top ten class gay guys fit the program. The culture style that you want to develop them.
