"So more information coming out. By the way, it looks like gaming. Harris is not gonna go for the Patriots. So that also makes things a little bit more interesting in the backfield there with the Patriots. Maybe James White gets a little bit more run that he's been a pretty frustrate also Dante Moncrief, but you weren't gonna play Donte Moncrief anyways. But some people out there who probably had, um David Harris, I say, Sonny Michelle. All of a sudden becomes kind of an interesting dark throw play. But again, it's gets that Miami defense, which, by the way we said earlier on, we liked them. So without Damian Harris, you feel better about picking the Miami Dolphins defense, at least in fantasy. I'm sure. I mean, I think if you didn't change much for you, I didn't really change. Running back situation doesn't change much for me. It's whether nothing get a picture too. Yeah, in that game, and then we're not special teams can sneak in the house one If you came Grant, this is is playing that that's really what it would have closed out. This one from Austin. Do I stick with Zeke? Now the Damon Harris is out. I also have Tony Pollard. Look, It's explain. You're gonna play him over pull Tony Pollard, but I don't feel great about it. I don't feel great about the situation. You love some clarity, right? We'd love some clarity there because he was question coming into the game. But it's likely that Zeke plays and if that's the case, you probably just rolled them. I think it's a little too cute to be like I'm gonna play the backup. Yeah, I think I think you have to. It's 61 of those guys. You just you just play. One more question here before we get to our fancy football. Updates. Lizzie, Tim, Patrick DJ shark or a brown? I'm assuming you mean and Tony because there's a J. Brown. It's very easy. It's a J. Brown. But if it's Antonio, it is a little bit more of an interesting question. I probably lean D J. H. Ark. In this case, because I expect the Jacksonville is going to need to throw and the Ravens, though they are a very good defense we saw if it's Devante Harris On EJ shark. That's a winnable matchup or shark. So I I like DJ chart a little bit more in this match of Antonio Brown and Tim Patrick. A pretty close for me overall in this one. But if you take your brown isn't easy decision. Yeah, Tim Patrick is it's really depends on who's picking him up in this game. If if True, Davis White is on him, then you gotta shut that down if whites on the other side of the field Patrick's probably good for 60 and score, too, So you know, it's really just a coin flip there. It's It's kind of a stretch shark is probably the safer play all the way around. Patrick probably is the highest upside round could sneak in there. I think I'd avoid Lindsay altogether. Yeah, I think so. Unfortunately. On. But it's interesting that you sort of bring that up because most defense's have been giving jury Judy the majority of the attention like that. That seems to be the play for most defense's, though in this last game. Look, AJ Hammer might be making an argument that you're gonna have to play a little bit more umbrella. You have to keep somebody deep back because KJ Handler's been taken advantage when you start to see the plan that the Broncos put together coming to fruition here, you know if you put too much attention on one guy, they're going to find the other guys in this office to burn you with And that was without Noah Fant fatback. In the mix their court with sudden back in the mix there. Now aside, let's pick your poison. I'm really looking forward to seeing this broncosoffense next year. Definitely looking forward to seeing the Bronco's plate today against the Bills are. Let's get to the fancy football update. Then that's football update is presented by a red bird farms with real chicken tastes like pickups, Red bird farms chicken at your local kings, Super City market or Safeway and make your fancy meal tonight. Fantasy football up day. We are learning that match. Stafford is expected to give it a go can't keep that guy down. It was one respect to the sideline him for one of two weeks going forward, and now he's already played Thursday night this week, but going forward Derek Carr that groin injury expected to miss one or two weeks should be back in time for the Broncos. Julio Jones is out this week. All right. You mastered active, we'll see how much run he gets as it were with the Niners. I thought it's funny how and we've been doing this now. The whole season. The fantasy football update has the Julio Jones speak of the Julio Jones up there? We always have to get some kind of Julio Jones something in there. And Yeah, he's gonna be out. So cue up. Russell Gauge queue up. Calvin Ridley, You're gonna already start Calvin really? That it really wasn't gonna be a question, But yeah, So that's that's kind of what we have there for the fancy football update. By the way, another one just to throw that out there because some people might not realize it looks like Colt McCoy is looking to start. Daniel Jones might not play. So for the Giants that won just came across the wire. Which is why my my browns bet has been the lock of the week old. You felt pretty good about that. Um, gosh. Where was gonna go? Yeah. Taysom Hill. Taysom Hill is not gonna put a lot of people had to build a lot of people love tasting Hill in the matchup against Kansas City just sort of thought again his floor because he's going to run the ball, But it's gonna be Drew Brees out there. So clearly you're not gonna want to start tasting Hill, but I wouldn't drop him just yet. I would I would hold on to taste of hell for a couple of couple beats there just because if Drew Brees has any setbacks Member, the his ribs are magically healed. He's just gonna go out there. Probably the flak jacket and they're gonna try to do the best to just help me get rid of the ball. Yeah, I've also heard tasting. Maybe the Red Zone package guy they may switch out put him into the red zone. So this may be a bad week for either quarterback 100%. No, I'm not even putting Drew Brees in there at all. Like I'm I'm keeping Drew Brees firmly on my bench. But I'm also saying, like People get, you know they get quick trigger with these things that you know, taste smell. I'm gonna drop him because he's not even starting. It's like well, I had hang in there just a little bit. All right. Good luck, everybody. I'll be back on at 12 30 with Dave.

"But i mean. Let's start with controversy and nothing better than that. Let's look let's talk some health. Yes waiver wire but titan some hill. That's that's going to be an issue. So faneuil had him listed as a tight end but dfs is a different beast. 'cause they can take them off anytime yup. Espn has had some hill tight end all year. And i think they might take that away after tastes. Hill played quarterback this week and to me and i love the guys at espn. At least most of them got a lot of friends there too mistake. You can't do that. You can't take away a player's eligibility in season you simply can't do it. Think about the fantasy owners to use the the number one waiver priority to get some hill as tight end and they wouldn't have used it. Otherwise because quarterback is deep now. Great game is a quarterback too but how many people would have used a waiver claim on hill the quarterback as opposed to taste some hill The tight end and quarterback. I'll give you a perfect example. Espn's ownership on taste of hell is over eight percent because he's a tight end on yahoo quarterback. He's at forty percent. So because people don't need quarterbacks as badly as the tight ends i'll give you another example of why. Espn is gonna make a huge mistake. They take the eligibility away. Say that. I don't know i had damien harrison my roster last week and i'm pretty good at running back but i wouldn't have have wanted to drop him but holy cow takes pills. Tight end tended stinks. So i'm dropping damian harris to pick tatum hill. And then you take that away from me. And i lost damian harris who was picked up by somebody else and now i can't really use tesa mill because i already have a good quarterback. I don't take hill. What about folks. Who used a whole bunch of fat budget on tastes tight end. It's gone now for the stretch run. I don't know what's going to happen but if they take it away. I can't swear but it's bullcrap you can't do that. You cannot take away a player's eligibility after he's been he's met your requirements whatever they are for eleven straight weeks. Just can't do it so when we get into the waiver wire he's gone most leagues where he was tied in eligible and is still tied an eligible at this point but like a yahoo is forty two percent. I'd it so he had a great game. We love running. Quarterbacks broncos up next gets atlanta again in week thirteen as hills very very nice pickup..

Week 10 fantasy football rankings: Running Backs
"I running backs schedule running backs derrick henry. It's actually pretty terrible for the next. three weeks. colts ravens colts. They are top for against fantasy running backs. Then it is unbelievable. And this is the time of year. We're derrick henry gets going anyway His last three his fantasy playoffs are jacksonville. Detroit and green bay. So i i'm recommending. My dalvin cook sell high. And we're going to wait until this primetime game against the colts and hope derrick henry struggles a little bit. And then we're going to sell dalvin cook for derrick henry and very good wide receiver. Okay i because he's going to destroy jacksonville detroit and green bay and the fantasy playoffs. Jonathan taylor is. I have a tough time. Buy into this. But has four matchups against teams. That are twenty nine. Th or worse against running backs this week against tennessee. I don't think it's that great of a match up. They've been really good. The last five games against running backs these per carry giving up some points. But they're giving up touchdown they are giving up touchdown touchdown every game tennessee this year. But you know he's got houston he's got vegas. He's got houston again in week. Sixteen might be tough against pittsburgh but the match ups are great. Does it matter. I don't know what jonathan taylor. We'll see what his role is he's got to just he's got to start playing freely and i think that's what the colts are waiting for. I think the colts are going to give him every opportunity to to get there but he. He's splitting the russian downs. Work with jordan wilkins in the hemans. The hurry up back the passing downs back. David montgomery talked about best remaining schedule. And then two teams. That probably doesn't matter but the foul. I guess i shouldn't say that all that. You guys determine that via broncos and the patriots like damian harris is is locked in. He could be pretty good down the stretch but obviously we don't know if that's going to be the case but yeah patriots and broncos have good schedules now. You go running backs with bad schedules. This one i think is very very important. Kenyan drake. I don't know if anybody is really into kenyan drake but terrific low. You think so yes. Because he's got some very good run. Defenses coming up very good. Maybe he's not such a good bye. I hate the schedule. Buffalo's not good. That's this week. if he's back. Seattle is a good run defense. Their twelve against running backs new england's of matchup. But then after that. So we're talking. That's week ten eleven weeks thirteen and on the rams the giants the eagles the forty niners. That's weeks fourteen. Thirteen fourteen fifteen sixteen. Those are four really good run defenses. And that's kenyan drake who only runs and doesn't have any involvement in the passing game so the whole point is to trade firm at the lowest possible price and it's because chase edmonds isn't gonna take his job when he comes back at it sir feels like he'll still have that role that rundown role maybe drake as the guy to go target. If you're desperate for a running back in the next three games not so much for the rest of the season you think this week. He might not even play this week. That's the problem is today. It feels like those games that you're referencing in the playoffs. Are more chase edmonds games than kenyan drake games like. Drake could play all four of those games against her. Three of those games against a good wendy fences and for edmonds might just be better. I think it's four good run. Event is the rams giants eagles niners and the giants thing. They're just about like fourteenth about as close to average as you can be but that's because they're really bad against pass catching running backs. They're not fourteenth in run. Vincent fourteenth and fantasy points allowed to running backs so that does feel more like a chase edmonds game like you. Just look at antonio gives they give us some touchdowns. Mckissic was a lot better than gibson. Even though gives another touchdown i dunno. I dunno school. Fantasy points because of the touchdown. But that's my point like these are good run defenses. So for a guy who's not involved in the passing game at all too scary schedule. I think down the stretch for kenyan drake.

"Seven pick and twenty nine teen at a filter out. They New England Patriots. Select Damian Harris running. Not smart that's a pen through. That's that's a circus. Like all respect the Damian Harris things really good player. I think he's an even better person. But not what I wanted. No catch. Pretty okay with that. You could still go train you on Williams or you could do you probably should do which is wait for one of your fourth round picks in either take Dexter Williams. Roddy? Why are the pats Damian Harris all eyes are on? Don't say Johnson now. Yeah. The pats have Sony, Michelle Michelle J, white. They got Rex Burkhead poor James white and Rex Burkhead. I mean, let go of tomorrow. Yeah. You're probably right. And it's going to be Sony and Damian Johnson big time Cowboys fan. I imagine his family is partying right now. At this possibility. It feels like feels like I don't need him to play this year to be at twenty twenty starting cornerback. She's like I need tristen hill to be my twenty twenty starting three technique now. Trae Williams in the mix is good player. Makes sense. You know, Seahawks are up at eight. Still trade with Minnesota action. Trade Seattle sales now on the eight to nine right? I run the risk of like, I just I just said this out loud. Aren't aren't the pats? Redundant running back now. Let's see what let's see what the Seahawks are gonna do right here. Go to quit. I can't keep up at the podium at the podium here. We go..

"You're like, that's all we got outta hit. He was here three years. And that's how we got. So it's a safety net. You hope you know, how many reps maybe five ten reps a game. I don't know right now. I mean, I don't think they I think it would shock. I don't think they'll spend the fiftieth pick on a running back. But I do think one of their first three picks will be runner, but it kind of feels like, you know, like when you put together like a like a dinner plate, right? And you've got you've got some states. You've got some potatoes when you got some roles, and then you look at it and your wife. Or somebody says Tony need some greens. You don't you don't have any greens on that table that play? And so you're like fine was last night wings. I actually have a couple of sticks of celery. Smother ranch. That's all you. But anyway, so so you just you get like three pieces of celery. Just so that the plate has some green on it right now. That's kind of how your backup running back position. You're running back position is set in that. It's just you got to have that. You know what? I mean. It's part of the overall thing you gotta have that that compliment to him the Iran. I don't mean. I don't think he's going to carry the ball, you know, hundred times this season, whoever you're back running back is. But I mean, you gotta have one. And so that's why you gotta go spend that pick and you're right. He might not be utilized that much on his career. But he'll be a fine back up to the best running back. Never. No, no, something Zeke. Unfortunately, you know, hope it doesn't happen. He may get deigned up. And I think the Cowboys are talked about Damian Harris running back from Alabama that I don't think he's going to be there. They'd have to trade up to draft running back like that and wherever they're at fifty pick. I just don't I just don't think that. That they can afford to you know, to to move up in a draft. And I don't think they will it's running back as an interesting position. I do think that I pick is and so much this is going to depend on how the I fifty seven picks go while players are pushed down to them, etc. I think you know, we ran with our fan pools tool espionage in we ran up all asking people. What position they want the couch to target and safety got seventy seven percent of the votes. It has to be I feel like I don't see. And it's it's easy to say that in vacuum because you don't know who's going to be whatever. But and I know I've played this game a lot. If all things were equal. I mean, it's just it's time. You got to get a safety. Yeah. I think that that's a need for this team..

"And he does really have that three down capability. I understand why Jacobs will go in the first round. But even when that said, I got him one point higher than you. Do I have an eighty nine so low I high second round grade probably going to be the first back off the board. And we'll talk about. Five got them higher than third. But let's go ahead and move onto the next running back here, and that is Damian Harris the other Alabama running back now I didn't like Harris as much as I thought it would he was the star at Alabama again as the season progressed. Josh Jacobs started to cut into his playing time. He's a power runner loves the head of steam plough downhill between the tackles fines the yards on the field. He's the type of running. That's always like falling forward to get that extra yardage. He has pretty good acceleration in a straight line. But he kind of hair lacks that agility in the open field Harris elects that breakaway speed to break off a lot of his runs you got caught from behind a lot. And he's more that low ceiling high floor type of prospect. He's a power runner that is somewhat lacking as an athlete, but we'll get tough yard between tackles after reviewing Damian. Harris. I like to kind of go and see what other people are saying about him because I've already got him graded and nothing nothing changes. I'm just curious what everybody has to say. And Dame Brugge ler said that Harris is a not as dynamic version Zekiye Elliott, and he might not be that far off. I kind of liked that calm because he's just he's a power runner, but doesn't have a lot of special -bility really in my book. I got high third round grade on him. I gave him a seventy eight, and I know that's going to be a lot lower than a lot of people but going in I was expecting like Damian Harris, and I didn't as much as most people. Do we are not far off on Daming Harris? Wow. He's somebody that. I also I wouldn't say hate him. But I wouldn't say I really loved him either. Just kind of lukewarm on him. He is a guy who you mentioned he's a decisive one cut runner, he gets downhill sticks. Putting the ground hits the whole, and he's looking to pick up as many as you can as quickly as you can because he knows he's not gonna run anybody. Harris runs with really good pad level decent power. So he's he moves a pile pretty consistently. He is hard. He usually runs through the first tackle not really guy who's gonna make people miss or break a lot of tackles. But if you're trying to bring him down with an arm tackle, you're probably going to have a hard time pretty average maybe slightly above average speed. But nothing spectacular. Like, you mentioned he gets caught from behind a lot. Just not somebody who's going to blow you up with speed. And I think Harris he flashes. A good jump cut in the whole. But you mentioned he's a straight line runner. He's not a guy who's gonna juke you. He went missing the whole. But once he gets down field, and he gets going downhill he can't change direction. So he's not at least not without stopping his feet and slowing down. He's not gonna make people miss. He's not very fluid. I think from a negative standpoint you're talking about a guy who, you know. Anytime you tries to make a sudden cut he trips over his own feet, and he falls down. He's not not very. Loose hipped, not quick twitch guy that you talk about in in the draft process. I think Harris also does not have great open-field vision. He's like I mentioned the straight line runner. He has a tendency to run into contact downfield not making people mess again and Damien doesn't catch the ball much wasn't used much as a receiver..

Don't you have to adjust? Yeah. Can't afford to take this much time doing it. Again, Christian wealth is a huge play. Tried to follow her Smith was lined up as the lead blocker. Now.

A fifty yard pass. Plays a short pass and run. Devante Smith got him set up Damian Harris at a one yard touchdown run seven nothing tied and then Oklahoma went three and out on his first series. The Bama defense with two sacks to a tongue of aloe took over from. There. Got him down to the ten yard line and delivered our play of the game receiver small left to talk about law straight drop.

"Middle of the week. There was some talk. He was feeling some sort of illness or so, and maybe that's having some impact out here tonight, but he's dealing with that no way they are accustomed to seeing what the symptoms Alabama defense Grecia. You can't practice for this. No, there's no scout team that's going to resemble the Alabama defense. But Alabama had the same issue. Right. There was no. Scout team that could mimic kinda Murray in his speed in his explosiveness. So they just need to settle down. They need to get a stop on defense at starts starts their turnover that they thought they had on the first drive would really help them. Now. Alabama is the only school to qualify for all five college football playoffs. So far, they are tested tough. In terms of the big games in Oklahoma should be to this their third college football playoff appearance. No one is appeared in the Orange Bowl more than the Sooners. There's their twentieth different Orange Bowl. They find themselves trailing by a score fourteen with four zero eight to play here in the first quarter on a warm muggy night. And south. Florida temperature. Kickoff was seventy six degrees. Alabama about takeover for their third possession. The first two resulting in touchdowns and they will start with very good field position at their own thirty nine yard line. And Mike Loxley their offensive coordinator decided to continue the strategy of using two halfbacks nausea Harrison Josh Jacobson the game now at the same time with three receivers. On first down ten from their own thirty nine Tunga, buy low out of the shotgun. It is a hand off to Harris. And he will stumble straight ahead and pick up six play Kenneth Murray and never Gallimore making the stop what that allows Mike Loxley to do having those two bags in the back through the same time is to disguise where he's going to run. The football is either one of those backs could be elite fullback or they could carry the football a very unselfish these Alabama running backs second down and four they'll stay with the two fullbacks two running backs say with the ball spotted at their own forty five. Now talk about low to throw take shock down the left sideline. It is entitled coverage. Jerry Judy comes up with a spectacular grab beating two defenders for Oklahoma forty yards. Jerry, Judy is so good getting off the line of scrimmage when he gets free access on a safety. He's too fast. Oklahoma can't run within that time. He runs right by trae Norwood and a perfectly thrown pass from to and right after that strike Jalen hurts checks into the game now and to us still in the game ton of my low is split out to the far side. Jalen hurts in the game. Now, he's out of the shotgun. Firsthand and ten the twentieth. Oklahoma hurts to throw sets up the screen Damian Harris inside the five yard line for eleven more yards on the play Robert Barnes made the stop and battles knocking at the door. Again, that the Oklahoma five so much to think about right when when Jalen hurts comes in the game. You're anticipating some kind of quarterback Ron, but Loxley keeps you on your toes. He just flips a swing past Damian Harris now his second catch out of the backfield. Same deal on first down and goal. Hurts out of the shotgun. Tunga about Lois split hurts thinks about keeping it. And does he's taken out some white jersey straight ahead pushing the pile still on his feet at the to the lawn and they'll say he's down at the one yard line of Oklahoma second down and goal upcoming. And that was just an option play there and well defended by Oklahoma. They took away the pitch man Damian Harris forced Merck's to keep the football. And they'll bring up a third down. What were the heavy package? Matt Womack, Irv Smith and hail henches. Second down and goal. Jalen hurts his out the game. Now Tunga by law under center hands off the Damian Harris touchdown minute thirty three left in the first quarter. It is all ala. Bama three possessions three touchdowns crimson tide. When Lincoln Riley is biggest fear is coming. True. They couldn't stop this offense. Nobody's been able to stop this offense averaging close to fifty points a game. And we knew Oklahoma had some issues with their confidence defensively and twenty one points in the first quarter can't help that. Joseph bullet us is perfect. All the extra point will a minute thirty three left the first it's twenty one nothing and Alabama is moving the football down the field at will scoring drives of seventy five fifty five and sixty one yards. And you sound Greece. Like, many of the Oklahoma fans here in attendance. Somewhat speechless. Oklahoma's been in this position before. Last year in the Rose Bowl. Got up thirty one to fourteen in the first half and had to had to come back and fight back. This is a situation where they gotta get something positive going offense. If they have zero yards on offense number one offense in the country. And again full marks to the Alabama defense. No question. But Oklahoma has not looked right since they divert the opening kickoff. After winning the toss. Well, you never know how your team's going to react on the big stage. And when you go against the bully, which Alabama has been the college football, and you get punched we're going to see what this Oklahoma teams made up. We'll kick it the air. Plenty of kickoff. Experience at a short kick field at the nineteen yard line. Out for a couple. TJ pleasure. The upback able to capture the short kick in a shorter return. A couple of yards. The big surprises Alabama defensively in the secondary has been up to up to par. And and really the best pass defense is a great rush. And as Todd said the pressure on Murray has affected. So here we go third opportunity for Oklahoma. I down and ten from their own twenty four column or it comes out throwing and it's caught grab Calcaterra. They needed a big catch. They get it its first down yardage and that was tight coverage. No window to throw that ball into. It's just right over the head of same Carter, the Nickelback and a great play by Calcaterra twenty three yards on the play Oklahoma. They don't need a first down. They don't need a field goal. Eighty two touchdown to stay in the game. There's Kennedy Brooks try on the right side lowers his shoulder. He's a cross midfield and should have enough the first down yardage. So some momentum now at sixty seconds left. But first quarter that's been owned by top Alabama. May have crossed midfield for the first time tonight just across the fifty Kyla Murray trying to make things happen. And he was not touched that he's stumbles down auditor for a loss and bring up third down Cuyler Murray, clearly the strategy for Lincoln Riley early in this game. He use his legs. I think that's the third or fourth time. He's kept the football. Whether it's just great leverage. Alabama's not gonna give you anything easy in that time. The Nickelback shining Carter kept leverage and force Murray to cut it up. So it's third down and four all of a sudden a critical play fourth tackle for a loss. If you will by this Alabama defense the ball spotted just on the Oklahoma side. Here's Murray steps up and throws it's in and out of the hands of miles. Teas and it will go incomplete. And it's fourth-down McKinney may the stopper Alabama to break it up. And I don't think there's any hesitation from Lincoln Riley, the gopher here near midfield. Field that I agree with them. He needs some kind of momentum. He cannot put his defense back out on the field. Ten seconds left Nicola. This is fourth and four. This is not quarterback sneak neighborhood. They need a real play here. From their own forty eight yard line got to get to the Alabama forty eight. Murrieta the God put them a high snap quick throw across the middle. And it's incomplete incomplete pass was low and miles tees couldn't take it off the term and Oklahoma. Turns it over on downs with five seconds left in the quarter in this Alabama front pointed Williams, bugs all of them were getting in the backfield in a hurry. That time Samir is beaten up all has to come out. It's a zone blitz. Well, designed by Nick Sabin, and they get to stop Murray looks jittery off his back foot. They're slipping down on the turf on the play before. And TS could not bail them out by taking it off the turf, five seconds left. Now, Jalen hurts is in there is a wide receiver. Now, he's split out to the far side. Tons of my low is the quarterback. They start cross midfield flipped to hurts. He's the Paul carries a cross midfield, and he's out of the Oklahoma forty yard line. There's a get together. With Kenneth Murray, all that, Allah Bama side. And so some nasty words and pushing and shoving take place to end the first quarter, Alabama's twenty one points. The most points scored by a team in the first quarter in Orange Bowl history. And that's the story. It's twenty one nothing Alabama and the crimson tide. Come back with a football. All the Oklahoma side of the field at the end of the first quarter. There's the college football playoff the Capital One Orange Bowl ESPN radio and the ESPN app. These guys are expected to perform weekend and week out. And is the weather gets colder. It's tough to execute on the.

"Eleven o three to go in this fourth quarter. Alabama leads it twenty one to nothing over Mississippi State the crimson tide shutout LSU last week shutout Tennessee in the fourth quarter of the game the week before that now pitching a shutout. Once again, it gets Mississippi State starting in good field position at the forty three of Mississippi State to a Tunga of Loa out for the contest still on the exercise. Bike mack. Jones fakes the hand off. Now stands in the bucket. Throws a flailing pass to the far side. But Jalen wattle walls it in that was nearly take it away. Mark MacLaurin at a play on it. Couldn't get it. It's a completion. And it's pick up about five such a funny throwing motion down around the hip like gunslinger gets the ball out were needs to be though. Picks up some positive yards completes might have had his arm hit on the throw and couldn't really step into it. That might be why it came out a little funny that time second. Five for Alabama Damian Harris in the backfield, Irv Smith tight end of the left side to give the Damian Harris Harris breaks through that defensive line and gets into the second level inside the thirty up the gut gashing Mississippi State for ten yards and a first down let your atoms and Willie gay team for the tackle. It's a first down for the crimson tide. Your defense has been so good most of the day. But yet you just keep getting hammered by this Alabama offense, along with the fact that your offense has been so dismal that sometimes it just takes the energy right out of your three receivers to the left side time of possession. Pretty close. Jones will throw a short pass to the wide receiver screen to Jerry, Judy Mississippi State was all over it. Maybe telegraphed a bit by the redshirt freshman quarterback. Go lose four yards on the play. It'll be second and fourteen Jonathan Abram another tackled. You could see why he's the leading tackler for Mississippi State. He's on every inch of the field covers different sideline to sideline. Lots of good athletes. Read an article this week where there's actually more NFL scouts here at this game than there were last week at LSU Alabama game because there are a lot of tractable guys on this football field. Second and long Mack. Jones quick throw looking for Jerry, Judy. He was hit hard as he was letting go of the football. Chris raeford on the coverage that ball incomplete in Alabama sputtering at quarterback on the Richard freshman. Jonathan Abram came on touched on the poets. They run a power scheme, and it's a one pass option and that one actually smarted a little bit. I have a feeling it's going gonna feel that for a while as Mack Jones. You know, we can't put all the blame on Mack Jones. He comes in as a third string quarterback second-string this week. But that defense was getting after Chung of low as well. This time Mack Jones hammered as he throws a camera dance there on the coverage. They tried to find the hot read the Damien Harrison completed its fourth down for Alabama. They're going to try a long field goal with Joseph boulevard coming in missile be about a fifty one yard or it looks like maybe fifty see where they spotted well MAC Jones's the holder on field goals and extra points. So he stays in the game. But that last play Jonathan Abram became from the defenses left on the previous play this time it came over to the right both times on touch nine of thirteen on the season for boulevard. This one would be a forty nine yarder and his career long. It is. All of us through just over the pipe. Alabama extends their lead twenty four to nothing over Mississippi State. We'll take a quick break. You're listening.

"It's Damian Harris how you doing Damian guys. I'm just waiting for him to come onto Steve about I will give you a couple of minutes, you get Damian Harris force guys put him on hold and we'll get him in just a second because he had nineteen Carey's hundred seven yards one touchdown not a bad game for him. Hi, Erin, not a bad game. At all. That guy is a senior who could've gone pro last year could have been in the NFL collecting a paycheck right now wanted to come back wanted to win another national championship. It's crazy to because his carries have been relatively limited for play. Of that stature so was fresh and was dominant today for Bama, I saw that was that was that was at sixty seven carries or something like that. I wasn't sure of the stat. I heard that during the broadcast. Yeah. How about this army back to back one thousand yard seasons for him only sixty eight carries coming into tonight. So talk about a guy that selfless. That's putting the team. I I mean, they have so many good backs that they don't need to have him. Carry the ball fifteen twenty twenty five times a game. But I mean man that kid is a special player that like I said could be in the league right now. And I decided to come back isn't that good though for him is not good that they're not going to spend him and run into the ground like crazy, especially with the quarterback like to but isn't not going to be more. Fresh more teams would be interested in the NFL. Or does that make a difference when it comes to draft time? No, I would think that it helps them. I mean, I'm trying to remember. You know? I mean, the guys like Zeke Zeke, obviously. Didn't have a ton of carries it Ohio State because they were so versatile on offense. I mean, you'd think that would help as opposed to somebody like saquon Barkley who was used on kickoff returns using the passing game. I mean, you know, and it is one of those things where you would think especially for a running back going to place like Alabama's gotta be good. Because you aren't that guy that they need to carry twenty twenty-five thirty times a game. I would think it's good. And obviously his skills are gonna show out when he gets to the combine this this winter, but yeah. Back to back one thousand yard seasons before coming into this year, quote, unquote, only at about five hundred fifty after tonight, but that's more about the team that it is him. You know, I asked you with Nick Sabin was a better coach so much better than everybody else. That's why Alabama's dominating everybody. Maybe I should've asked you is just a better quarterback so much better than everybody else. Is that why Alabama's dominating right now? Well, that's why they're dominating as opposed to winning games like they used to seventeen to three or twenty one to six. That's why they're winning. They're winning games. Now, fifty six to six instead of twenty one to six it's because a two it'll be Arnie. I'll tell you this. I was thinking about you the other day because I you know, I don't know if you've heard this. But I think you're giants are going to need a quarterback going forward. I've heard that I've heard that a couple of places, you know, the the rumors out there. Yeah. I was going to say, I don't know if you guys have talked about on your Sunday show or not. I mean, do do you guys even touch on the giants. I mean, I don't know if you talk about you know, minor league. I don't like to bring it up. But what can you do? But I was gonna say is that I don't know that there are any of those difference making quarterbacks this year. Like there might have been last year with darnold Baker Mayfield, depending on how you feel about those guys just in. Herbert from Oregon doesn't really do it for me. You know, the kid drew lock from Missouri. And I'm wondering if two is the next legitimate NFL quarterback that's in college. And he's not even eligible for the draft this year. But the answer your question if he was eligible for the draft to be the number one pick right now that is a great question. You know, I think we're going to have our Buddy Ryan Fowler who co host radio in Tuscaloosa at the top of the hour at the top of the hour. I would love to hear his opinion. I it's a great question. I think who is a better quarterback then like Murray or somebody like that. Not or what then Keiler Keiler is going to play baseball. I know that. But I'm just asking you as a quarterback though. I think he's a more complete quarterback. Yeah. I mean. Why are you even think about that? Why didn't really think about it? I mean, I mean, I'll say this Cuyler hits a curve ball better. But the way to a place football. I don't even know if I believe that. I mean that kid is unbelievable. So no, you know, I don't know. It's a great question. I guess it would depend depend on who the team is what their needs are. But if you're in the market for a quarterback, I I think you can make a legitimate case that he would be the number one pick. If he came out this year. Do you think? Think to is going to be a better quarterback than the Sam darnold and the Josh Rosen. Josh our the whoever else him about Baker Mayfield. Well, I mean every guy's a little bit different. Right. But I would say the stats that he's putting up against the level of competition. I know Baker Mayfield. Well, but that's the big twelve. You're right. Exactly. Yeah. I mean, it doesn't count when you play seven on seven fly football in college. But I mean, look the competition even though Alabama schedule hasn't been great. It's better than what Josh Allen face. It's better than what Josh Rosen faced and two was putting up better stats and all of them. So not better than what? Sam darnold face is. Well, I guess it is a little bit. Yeah. I mean, I mean, he's got to face the Arizona. Wildcats every right? Too soon. You're Pac twelve south champion. Arizona. Wildcats. Maybe who knows. Yeah. I'm not holding my breath on that. Would you fly out here to go to the game? If they made it it's in California, not here in LA. But would you? By stanford. Right. Yeah. Maybe you could fly out. We could drive up to a remote show little road trip. Maybe not tours and span you're on the road, by the way. Remember when US Oregon state was down big last week and came back in one sure they were down twenty one nothing to USC. It's twenty one fourteen now at the half how crazy with that? Sure. If if if USC loses games their fans are going to be totally reasoned in calm the. Oh, absolutely. Sure. That right. One hour in the books. We will come back. Go back over Alabama LSU and finish out the top twenty five also talked to Ryan Fowler from Tuscaloosa Alabama does this show on the flagship of the university of Alabama.

"Inspect the entire season in space this Jerry, Judy. Is a star in the making a guy who's having a breakout season came into this game averaging twenty five yards. A catch a guy that can get over the top for the depot catch short balls. We just got a taste of what he can do. After the catch hugely allusive jump cuts. You couldn't even get a hand on it before it went out of bounds. Down in Tennessee twenty. The right to left in total control here. There should get right up the middle of the fifteen and dragged down at the twelve yard line. That was devastating on the stuff. That's another eight yard. So the big picture here for Alabama is a win that they clinch the SEC west Georgia knocked off. Kentucky earlier today. So Georgia has won the SEC east. We still have a month of football to go and the SEC championship game. We'll be set. Now, we've got Harris shaking up on the play and limping Obama sidelong was really favor. Not right rag. You need a couple of people escort him off the field. Not good for the tied at all. Best back and a lot of respects Damian Harris Harris now gets the call. He's in the backfield. Trying to turn it outside the right of stopped. Maybe one of the eleven will set up a third down in one or shod Lawrence tackle here in Harris had is gone over a thousand yards in consecutive years. Came back surprise a lot of people who've been declared for the draft. And he's a guy he's gonna be playing on Sundays. I just think the Najji has some aspects to them that are that are more explosive than the other two backs with Damian Harris definitely a big time town, maybe the second or third back to go in the draft depending on where love. Stanford ghosts. Third to Bama from the twelve terrace on a delay up. The middle got the I doubt inside the ten forward. Push the eight yard line. So Damian Harris picking up for the injured Najji hairs. And it's first down. Gold is Dr started for Alabama at their own twenty. And now they're deep pit LSU territory. Leading twenty two to nothing. Push down and goal. Damian Harris the running back. By law looking at the defense clock inside ten seconds to receivers nearside. Luck wonder, right? Like, Jerry Judy had. Here's up the middle of the five grab their forward. Push down inside the two maybe the one yard line. David on first down just kicking up chunks of yardage seven. They're taught Harrison style. And I've been amazed to oxygen on film and tonight. The eyeballs live to a ton of Bilo. His timing is dissipation the way he reads defense is how quickly the ball comes out even off of play action. Fakes the snap from the shotgun. And now, he's showing us. He can work the clock a little bit almost benevolently for this LSU crowd daisies. Retina slip away balls. Just inside the to Harris gets the call right up the middle touchdown, Alabama. Two yards right up together. Damian Harris with the touchdown run in the league now twenty eight to nothing. That'll send some more of the one hundred two thousand in attendance for this match up tonight to the exits this too good Bill. I don't know what the numbers are exactly that. I know Alabama's over five hundred yards total offense. Even though they weren't quite is effective is a Ben scoring the football and getting sevens instead of threes. I intersection for the season. They have been close to unstoppable between the twenties. Moving tonight almost at will have another plus for Alabama. They just made the extra point. They have missed two of those tonight extra point good timeout, five forty two left in this one. It's all over. But the shouting it's Alabama twenty nine LSU nothing. This is SEC football on ESPN radio and the ESPN app presented by Dr Pepper. As someone who lives in breezed college football. I can promise you that this season will bring the mayhem.

We know it's going to be one of the most electric atmospheres college football seeing this does valley. So you know, you just gotta look at it. Like, this is why we came here. You know, we didn't come here to play Louisiana Lafayette or Arkansas state. You know, we we came to play in these big time game. So, you know, just that's why we came here.

It's just that's what the game is about you know, to absolutely dominant physical teams the SEC the toughest conference in America going head to head and one of the biggest games in college football. I mean, you can't really you can't really put it into words. It's just one of those big time games. One of those almost a rivalry. If you will, you know, they don't their fans don't like us are fans, don't like them. Anytime we play each other. It's just a hostile environment. And you know, like you said it's one of those knockout fifteen round fights incredibly physical game. And we're ready for no Devon white on the best players and all of college football. They're all American linebacker. How does that change at LSU defense in the first half? You know, that's one of the main guy, you know, it's a signal. Call. There the guy that gives them a lot of energy a lot of emotion going into their games. I played incredibly hard like you said one of the best players in the country. But ultimately, whether he plays or not that doesn't affect how we prepare doesn't affect how we get ready. And you know, we're just gonna approach this game the same way whether he was planning that should there. Be an incidentally rule that in Alabama team coached by Nick Sabin should not be allowed to have an exceptional quarterback fair. Oh, I don't know. If people really like that. I mean, we enjoy it.

I spoke to last year after Auburn were all gathering around the circle saying, we're gonna kick it. But next time we see them and we're going to win out well. They, I don't know something missing.

And what did that team do? They made a change of quarterback and then beat us with a young kid who's now the Heisman favorite. I'm not suggesting the same situation as their, but Kirby smarts, a smart man. He knew there was no chance they were going to win that game. The way they were playing. They were lucky was as close as it was. There are. They were lucky it was that close because LSU just was was putting Phil goes on the board and in in not converting touchdowns and.

He's ever interviewed, no telling what, he's gonna say later Big picture let's take it out. And big picture as far as Alabama is? Concerned I'm looking through the I. In my, opinion I think is one more favorable schedules, Alabama's had in the last, five or six years is anyone really capable of competing with Alabama not only in the SEC west I mean obviously George on the east side of things but now here in Vegas we like to. Talk numbers, and right now Alabama's at least, a touchdown are more favorite in every single game season. Is this kind. Of a foregone, conclusion that the crimson tide at the very least I mean the SEC championship game this year I will say yes or no First of all I think I'll. Bama's got a very favorable schedule if you, look at it top to bottom they do go to LSU LSU's not supposed. To be as good this year Mississippi State supposed to be what LSU.
