"You were listening to the Paul finebaum show podcast. Welcome back. Skywalker up next here on a busy Tuesday afternoon. Hello Skywalker. Ward and eagle, doctor Paul. Yes, sir. My one of my kids when he was learning at all. He would call a slim Jim a DM genome. So I'm going to start a petition online that slim Jim come out with the GM from Tuscaloosa edition called the DMG. Would you be interested in so I'm going to oh sure, absolutely. All right, no, thank. Can all he met from San Antonio a phone so he doesn't have that straight talk $20 phone. All right, that's all I got. Doctor Paul. Thank you very much. Eddie is in San Antonio, hello, Eddie. How you doing today? We are doing great. Thank you. Okay. I've been watching NFL football for more than 50 years. Yes, sir. Okay. You know, they come up with these. When you're watching a game in the referee, they stop to clock and then they review it. And then they say, are they talking to the announcers who are doing the game and they'll say that is not reviewable. But they don't ever give a full explanation why it's not viewable. They got about a half a dozen plays in the NFL like that. But they don't ever give you an explanation. So why does that exist anyway because they're telling you that the two things are not on the same field? The same day, the same stadium, the same sandy afternoon, so this game doesn't exist because you're telling us that that's not a reviewable play. Well, but Eddie, I mean, it's really pretty simple, there's X number of things that are reviewable in certain things are not. And that's really what they're trying to say. Well, then they shouldn't show it repeatedly on instant replay. Well, you have to remember that people broadcasting the game are your obligation to the audience there. They're not part of the review of the reviewing team. No, what I'm talking about, the referees will come back and say, that's not reviewable. Okay, well, I understand what you're saying, but Eddie, I don't know how to answer it any better than I have, but I appreciate it very much that you called. How about Elvis up next? Yes, Paul, can you hear me? Yes, I certainly can. Okay. I just want to first say that I think you're a really good person. And I don't want to show all the time, but I watch it sometimes and oh, that's what we call you and being seriously, I would call you iconic. Thank you. And I just want to start off saying that, and also as far as the sports, I heard my say, maybe 30 minutes for an hour ago, something about sports and new playing sports or something. I don't know. So like that. Right. But I would actually, I can see you doing track. Well, Elvis, I did enjoy track as a young person. I was not particularly fast, but would be the blade. The blade. Run middle to long distances are okay. But I used to be a big track fan, though. When I was in college, I lived pretty close to the track and I would go over there and watch the meats all the time. Hey, thank you very much for the call. Brian is up next in Alabama. Hello, Brian. Hi, Paul. How are you? We are doing great. Thank you. I would just like to on behalf of the entire Alabama nation apologize for GM escaping from the red stone arsenal. Apparently he slipped through the fence. And I'm very sorry. We are tracking him down as we speak. Yeah, it's really, it's sad for those who know Jim well, which I don't know how many people that he does not have, what do you put on dogs to keep track of them? Those little, on their collar, you put a little cracker pickle. Jim's guardian probably should do that with him from now on. Yeah, I certainly agree and he really makes me ashamed to be from the state of Alabama. But that's where that's what I drew, so that's where I met. Hey, thank you very much. We will take a break. Jeff Goodman. On college basketball, who give us the update on the NCAA tournament next. We are officially out of time for this program. We appreciate all of you for being a part of it. Some really interesting guests today will see you right here tomorrow. Thank you for listening to the Paul fine bomb show podcast.

"I just wanted to call and legion had a lot to do with. I mean, not legend on Jim had a lot to do with it. I've tried to get you before now. I wanted to apologize for my call the other week. Because I just asked you about hate and Alabama. And I shouldn't have done that. That is so that's not even really anything to get mad about. It's a volatile issue. And I think a lot of people, I found myself being helped by calls like that because I was never against it. I was just simply trying to facilitate a healthy conversation about what happened. Well, you got an opinion just like I got on the list and GM was not so Christianity. I'm Christian and I've worried about that phone call ever since I made it. Christians don't act like that and they don't fly out in anger and start making care. I don't know what I'm saying. We all go through life on a journey, but what I've always felt about religion and Christianity or any other religion for that matter is it's not what you say. It's what you do. And that guy can't help but tell us how great a Christian he is, but ultimately it's not for me to decide, but based on his behavior. That's right. And what does it say? You'll know him by their works. And that didn't show very good works. Can you help me with this? Because I think you sound like a very spiritual woman, but is there a chapter anywhere in theology about those who scream out to others that you are the devil incarnate? Well, you know, I'm sure that's the way the fair sees we're one that we're trying to stone the moment today. But they didn't succeed because you see what Jesus told him if you are without seeing cash the first stone. Now the only glory about us is we have somebody to take those sins. We don't stop saying just because we're Christian. Exactly. And GM I hope will think about that tonight. I really did because I love Jim. I mean, I love everybody on your show. I love you, Paul. As a Christian. And like I said, I wanted to call you before now because did upset me and now I wanted to take you one time now. I loved wrestling. But I didn't ever get to go. So I wasn't one of those grannies running down to the front. And I love me some stone cold now. Yeah, well, I just try to do a lot of I was fortunate enough to go once or twice in my life, and I just always remember I didn't mean anything by that. Well, Elena, I appreciate it. I know you did. Well, let me tell you something. A hard act to follow is that miss Susie. She's a class act I'm telling you. She is. And I hope she enjoyed enjoyed this bracket. Lana, thank you. Elena might just work her way into the bracket the way with that phone call. That was fantastic. We head to the break. We have had a busy one so far.

"But I will also point out that when I was president and part of the Big Ten group and we had a significant increase in our media contracts. The president sat down and said this is, this is going up too fast. And we have a lot of programs on campuses that are starving. And so we all agreed at those were programs that were profitable. We all agreed that we would each take 4 million out of that increased media contract and do something difficult to do. Support student mental health, maybe it's scholarships that remote diversity, even supporting and art museum, things that are difficult to do. So that that media contract actually contributed to the academic success of our students and of the institutions. So this is that same opportunity with a much bigger money. And so the question becomes can the president sit down together and say, this growth in dollars is inevitable because of the demand and excitement around college support. But we as presidents collectively can make a decision to say we should always be spending more money on college athletes than we are spending on 535 power 5 coaches. Eric Barron, the former president of Florida state and Penn State. Many, many thanks for joining us. It's a fascinating conversation. I would love to continue this some other time and try to try to see where it all goes. Thank you for your time. My pleasure. Thank you for yours. What an amazing conversation.

"Has had such a distinguished career doctor Aaron Eric Barron has been the president of both Florida state and Penn State is a former CFP board member now a member of the knight commission and he's been very outspoken in recent times about a number of issues, including the future of college football. Doctor baron, thank you very much. What a pleasure to have you on. We appreciate it. And we hope you're having a great day. My pleasure I am. Thank you so much. Let's get right to it. I read your piece the other day. I've heard some of the conversations that you've had. And before we get too deep into the weeds, just your overall thoughts on where we are right now, you've been the president of two major football powers, major universities in this country and two of the largest states. Help us understand your perspective on today and the future of college athletics. I enjoy football and enjoy college athletics and I want to make sure that it succeeds. I think we're in a situation where we're going the wrong direction. Coaches, salaries, are going up twice as fast as the support for students. Huge buyouts that money that is there. We have the NCAA that is responsible for operating traditional costs, insurance, legal cost, not for college football, but doesn't get any of the revenue. So we have an opportunity. I actually, I think it's a tremendous challenge to change course. But we have a tremendous opportunity because we're about to have a significant infusion of money with the college football playoff new format. Doctor bear, you said something that really grabbed my attention because this program, as you know, is on the SEC network and I can give you a couple of different schools that have paid out anywhere from 15 to $30 million in what now called dead money, money to former coaches literally to go away. I'm fascinated by what you said because I agree with you, but I also don't know how this can be legislated. Can you enlighten us? So I think my experience from running to universities and other jobs is that it's a challenge if everything is incremental. It's a challenge if you're looking at the same pot of money or it's increasing slightly and you try to do new things. It's also a challenge for individual presidents to stand on their own against what is very strong interest among alumni and boards and universities to be to be competitive. But if you inject a $1 billion of new money into the system, I think you can come together as presidents and decide to do good things with it. Before the money comes in, it's so much easier to do things to create new rules and goals if you have a significant infusion. So this is the opportunity to look at funding student mental health, equity in sports with female promoting diversity with in terms of the football and other sports ranks for. Salary and for positions. This is an opportunity to find the support we need for the sports that are not revenue generating, but are incredibly important to the athlete there well-being in their future success. So I think this is a matter of the president's coming together and say, we're going to see a new $1 billion coming in. It's time to say that always the money we've spent on the students should exceed the money we spend on coaches and facilities. Doctor Barry, I do not want to hold you accountable for something that you are not accountable for. But what I'm about to say, you can say a lot better, but you took over the presidency of a university at Penn State where. A couple of presidents before you tried to fire the football coach and was unsuccessful because of his power. And you understand that, having been there, you understand having gone to school where you did in Florida, and I know I'm just throwing things up in the air and hoping that you can make sense out of them, but I think you have to be concerned from our position about the power of the presidency at schools where too often football, supersedes everything else. I think it's no doubt that many times conferences and presidents say, this is what we've got to do. It's the right thing to do. And then the pushback is strong enough that it follows along the lines of what you just said. However, we know that the press and public opinions about college sports is changing dramatically as these buyouts get to be excessive and appear to actually put some significant stress on a university or that the salaries are going up at such an incredibly fast rate. Twice as fast as the support for students. And you see a lot of efforts both courts and otherwise to alter that system to force those changes to occur. I don't have a lot of faith that the federal government is going to step in and do things like that. And so I agree. This is difficult. But if there's a chance to do it, it's when you have a $1 billion on the table. Now, imagine if you don't do it. And it's status quo and that same doubling rate of increases for coaches or 300% increases in buyouts over a short period of time continues with a $1 billion on top of the 550 million that comes out of CFP today. And I think you're going to see a nightmare of college athletics if we don't do something about it. So basically my point is now is the time, easier to do it when the dollars are new. And you can continue to grow sports. And continue to make student athletes successful. And I know you mentioned earlier, in your piece about not only presidents, but commissioners, but the commissioner of the league that you were part of for so many years, the Big Ten played a significant role in not only bringing two schools that do not match Penn State or anyone in that league from a geographical standpoint, but went out and cut the biggest television deal ever that looked like he was following and I'm talking about Kevin Warren. Big Ten commissioner. It looked like he was following an NFL model. And I realized that's getting a little bit off the basic theme here, but. How do you rely on somebody who went out and did that to do what you're talking about? So I think no doubt that market forces and everyone are going to look for that next time.

Come back, we continue our two hours away from the introduction of the new basketball coach at all miss Chris beard. We'll have that for you later on right now. Let's get back to the calls and Larry is up next. Let's get ready to rumble. Oh my gosh. Thank you, bro. Yes, sir. How are you doing? Pretty rough. But it's just hard to be no competition. Nobody, but I'll be here but I love it, man. I love it. I thought my man would probably do better on land. When he said that good stuff, man, it can go place to Star Trek. Captain Carr never been, you know? Well, he still hung up on going over the triple record set from Woodstock, Larry. I mean, that was what, 19 60 8 or 9, I don't even remember. It was a long time ago. I wrote that stuff. By the time I got 1969, that was what I just been backing on loan thank you. But I'm gonna tell you something. I love this thousand ahead of our land. So I just I'm a wheel good man. I'm afraid you'll be good. Well, there's the man. No cop cheers when you guys battle it out now. I mean, I really do except for the legend. We're sounding like a dying child. But anyway, how about y'all man? Hey, road time, Jack. Hey, thank you. You take care of yourself. Day in is up next in Tennessee. Hello, Dana. How's it going, mister fine bomb? We are doing great. Thank you. Good. I like a comment and a question. Okay. Sure. Yeah. It sounds like, you know, you hold us four hours a day. You hold people watching you every day. And it really is. It's one of the best shows I've ever seen on television. Really? Thank you. Yeah, and if Jim done that, I think we would have another Jones town. Yeah. It's sad to think, yeah. I mean, listen, we tried to help Jim as much as we can here. We remember a couple weeks ago, he was sick and the entire community came together now he's apparently well again and he still sounds sick. Well, you know, God bless everybody as far as head goes, Jim. It is nice to, like I said, and by the way, I want to say this too. You're the smartest man I've ever talked to. Well, thank you. You really are. And the comment is about the light evolves. I think y'all make some noise. I was tickled to see that they made the tournament. Yeah, I mean, they were on a really good run early on. Yeah. And then they trailed off a little bit, but I think you're right. I really like Kelly Harper, and I think she's brought. She seems like she's brought the feeling back and the meaning of what lady vols are all about. Well, listen, Dana, thank you so much for your kind comments. You take care of yourself. We'll talk to you soon. Thank you very, very much. John is up next. Hello, John. Paul appreciate you having me on the show. I was watching the show and full of John and Ford remains a bracket. I don't know if you're talking about me, but I'll tell you what. I'll take the credit for it. I'm going to say making the fall time bomb records the highest athletic achievement. I've accused of my lightbulb, so thank you so much. Well, John, we are so glad that you made it. And all the very, very best. Once the competition begins. Boone is up next in St. Louis. Hello, Boone. Hey, Paul, how you doing? We are doing great. Thank you. Hey, I wanted to talk a little bit about. What they look to take on Utah state here in a couple of days. Do you think they could make some noise in the tournament? Only a couple of games. I think the very talented team, I think the show got a higher seat, but I just wanted your thoughts on maybe if they can make noise here on this weekend. Well, here's the problem with mizzou. Their second round game will be against Arizona, assuming they get passed. I don't think you could have found a more difficult checking round game on that side of the bracket. So that's my concern. Arizona is a potentially final four team. So I think that's really the issue. Ultimately, they'd have to get by Alabama, but that would be the region. But I think Arizona is the key game. Right. Well, I would agree. You get past the second round, then you look at until you get to Alabama. And if someone can knock out Alabama, then hey, you got to talk about it, but here's the problem. I think we've seen it before. Virginia lost a couple of years ago in the first round, but the odds of Alabama losing until the suites probably until the elite 8 are very, very thin. Thank you for the call. You take care of yourself. Let's check out Sam and Columbus, Ohio. Hello, Sam. Hey, what's going on, Paul, thanks for having me on the show. Thank you. So I am sitting here. I know we don't talk about Vanderbilt very often, but I'm sitting here wondering thinking that Vanderbilt is the biggest snub of the tournament. I mean, they finished the season winning ten of 12 financial 11 to 17 in the SEC B Tennessee at home. And then I look around the tournament and I see the Big Ten get 18s in Nevada getting in and out of the mountain west after losing three in a row. I just don't see how you don't put Vanderbilt

So third and very short on that play, but an incredible opportunity for Florida state. Looks like even less than a yard here as it goes under one minute. Lawrence till a Philly staying in the backfield, he will get the carry here, tries to carry a couple defenders up the middle of a hard fought run and that will move the chains. The clock at 51 and a timeout column field. Yep, NC state calling that timeout right now trying to preserve some of this. As NC state, you've got to try and hold them to a field goal right here. Burn these timeouts and leave yourself some time on the clock because now Florida state who remember, this is no sure thing. You got a kicker who struggled for a lot of this season. And so as you sit here right now on the NC state 24 yard line, it would be a 41 yard field goal. So not a give me by any stretch for Ryan Fitzgerald based on what we've seen so far this season had the two misses a week ago. And so NC states defense has to stand up right here. You'd imagine a pretty run heavy approach. I would love to see Mike norvell, give his quarterback that he trusts a lot. Another chance on the perimeter. We saw the interception last time. Give him a two way go where he can be a runner, especially if this thing gets the third down, a chance to keep this thing alive, but right now you got to entrust this to your offensive line up front. Say we got a Russian quarterback and we believe you guys can move their three guys up front and give us some lanes here to try and set up for a game winning field goal and turn this clock. 51 seconds on the clock NC state leading by two.

Well, yeah, and it really does, you know, that's the other thing too. Kids these days are getting very savvy with social media, you know? So which is really cool to see. But it is, it's not it's a brand. It's not necessarily who they are. And when we see a lot less of like questionable social media these days, then I remember us talking about backlinks, Twitter and Instagram were first becoming a thing. Nowadays, you know, they're very, very savvy about building their brand and curating what they put on. And so you still got to do the work of getting to know them and getting to know the people around them a lot. And, you know, it is like ice I totally understand where you're coming from. It's like, you know, it's very easy to say like they're entitled and they're so different and I'm 42 and I'm a mom now and I can see now that they're a product of what we've built as adults. They're a product of their surroundings and it's not them necessarily being obviously bad kids or anything like that. But that's why you have to do your homework of who is around them. Who is in their ear? You know, because it's only going to get more intensified as they come here and get more exposure. There's going to be more people in their ear. There's going to be more people trying to get to them. Who are they listening to? Are they impressionable? Who's talking to them is huge when it goes into thinking about is this going to work? Are they going to be here? Absolutely. It's just a credit to you and how well you guys are doing your job and recruiting because you got to sort through so many different things to find out exactly what that person is and what they bring to the table for your team. Both on the court and off the court. Coach, we've enjoyed our conversation with you. The last thing I just want to wrap up is basketball wise this season. What should we expect from FSU basketball? I know what to expect to see, but I want you to tell everybody else who does not know and does not follow ACC basketball if you don't, you should. I don't know what you're doing. But what we expect to see from your group this year on the court. I expect to see an exciting brand of basketball. That is what I am just looking forward to showing the world is that we have a group of players with the skill set and talent to play a really exciting fast paced style of basketball. With hopefully a good amount of scoring, but really, really focused on the defensive end. This is a basketball cliche. Of course, is what everyone would say. But no, truly, we've got a group of players that are really, really locked in to playing a style that I think is enjoyable for them and enjoyable to watch. So that fits in great with the ACC because it's exciting basketball all over the ACC, such great players. Man, it's going to be a really fun and exciting season to see how all these teams do and some of these great matchups. I can't wait for ACC conference play to get here. Love it. Oh, sorry, I lied. Last question. How are you on game day fits, you know? Now officially, not interim head coach, like, am I expecting like crazy game day fits, am I expecting like stilettos? Are we kind of just trying, you know, give me an idea because I'm a fashion person. There's a lot of like, it's not an easy choice these days. There's a lot of pressure to tone it down or, you know, like there's a lot of pressure. So I do know that because I have to stand most of the game, the shoe, the shoe choices, I have to be very well thought out. Your assistant's sitting down, you can wear the highest of heels, you know, 'cause you're just sitting there. When you have to up and down the sideline, I gotta be a little more strategic, but no, I look at games as like, this is our chance to show out. Like, this is the problem we were putting on the floor. I don't think we should take anything lightly about how we do anything, what our appearance is. I was like that as a player. I always thought you look good. You play good, you know? So where I make up and all the whole deal. So that's gonna continue, just gotta make sure, you know, like I can sustain standing up the whole game. You know what? You can always do a shoe change. You could always have this to let us in the first half and then second half like switch system some product sneakers and just like unless the first half is going really well. You can not change a thing. Right, unless it's going great. Yeah, and you're up to one. You need to stay with it. It's fine. This is a public call to all these clothing brands revolve whoever the heck else is out there. I don't know too many. I got to talk to my wife. She's on biore now. Lululemon, all that.

I will send you a DM if I absolutely love it. You will know. And we're excited to watch your team kill it this season. Best of luck to you and the team.

I am an example for this little girl that's coming in and wants to shoot around and dribble like she wants to be me someday. Like those types of experiences are so key and so amazing on both sides that, yeah, we need that around, you know, we need that. This is, we talk about family all the time. Like, you know, every program, we talk about we're family, you know? And we're taking care of these kids when they're away from home, you know? And I'm talking about our players. We are their family when they're not home. And so that helps having kids around, having parents that are doing this. Helps that family atmosphere a lot.

So I'm passionate about as you can see, it's been an amazing experience. And really proud to be a part of watching other moms do it. And ultimately, honestly, it helps keep women in coaching. And that's one of the huge things that, you know, our coaches association, the WBCA, has been huge about how do we support females staying in coaching. I always have to say, it does not mean that we don't want males coaching women's basketball. I'm not saying that. I love having two males on my stat. Two male assistants love having, you know, males coaching women's basketball. But it is a place for everybody. And sometimes it will be harder. For women to make that choice in any field. And so we want to ultimately be about that. How can we do our part in this little area to keep women in coaching and support them if they also want to have a family? Yeah, a 100%. And I think it sends a message to also your players, right? You know, like your players that, you know, your daughter walking in, she has an assumed now 15, 12 to 15, right? Like young big sisters. You know, that are going to be around that are going to love her. One of my favorite memories ever in college and coach Bill forever was my first coach that offered me. He works with you now underneath you. Love coach bail, but he was with me when I was at Florida for one year. And he was with me. He has two daughters, Daniel. One is Cali, but then he only had one. He only had Callie. And so I never forget he was our guard coach, so he bought all the guards into his house. We're like sitting and eating dinner. And Callie comes out with his shirt on, and it says like, I'm gonna be a big sister. When I tell you, I like wept, like I cried. Like I was like, oh my God, we have another little baby coming. Here, I don't know how old my is, but they're like, I swear, kids grow so quickly through social media. You see kids, and I feel like every year, it's like an inches, and it's like, you're an adult now. But I say that to say that it was so amazing to experience, to know and experience that she's going to have big sisters. You know, that she's going to be there. And we had times where my teammates would babysit his kids and things like that. And it just, it brings together like you talked about like the real part of family. So I love that. I think for your players too, that it gives outside of like, you know, I'm a big sister. If I have no siblings, I've got coaches kids to take care of, you know? Exactly. Yeah, Maya was just here this morning at work with us. She's 6, by the way. This office. They didn't have school today. They had school off. And so she was here with Bill and yeah, it's amazing to have those experiences. You will remember that for the rest of your life and it's because we have an environment that is accepting of families, moms, dads, whatever. And they unfortunate thing is, is that's not, that's not true at every institution. That's not true for every program. And so that's another piece of what we want to create discussion around is that, you know, it just varies so widely what's acceptable and what's not. And so there's just a greater conversation there about what is best. And what kinds of things can be put into place at the institutional level that allows room for family and for mothers, especially to be able to do their job and not feel the constraints of, oh my gosh, I can't balance both. And having an institution that understands that, as well as bosses that understand that athletic directors and head coaches really, really goes a long way. I want to take this moment for me because I feel inspired right now. Pause the show, go call your mom, tell you, love her, because I want to do that after a number recording here. So I appreciate that. Another follow-up question, and you brought up both of you all brought up kind of like a possible babysitting aspect. Do you have a number one player that you would trust as far as babysitting ghosts? Doesn't have to be a player you trust on the court. Who would you trust on this current roster? Like, you don't make layups a lot, but you can watch my kid. Doesn't have growth at all. We all have our strengths and weaknesses, right? Oh my gosh. I mean, there's so many. I have a lot of responsible players on the roster. I think, yeah, Sarah jetty, who is an unfortunately supposed to be on the podcast, she's sick today, but she does a phenomenal job of connecting with my daughter. They have a secret handshake. They're just, they're always playing together. But I want to say this because of my players hear this. They will get offended. There's so many of them that I would trust with my daughter because they've just shown how much they care for her and they're just responsible people in the moment or just in general. So, but Sarah definitely, she's got, you know, she's got the handshake, she's got all the little, you know, inside. She loves it. She's a great connection with kids. I went safe though. I did not say who would you not trust, right?

"All right, what's up, everybody? We are back with another episode of dice it up on the her hoop stats podcast, ice. We are joined by one of the top guests we've ever had. I am so pumped for this interview. You know this coach personally, you've played against this coach, we're joined by Brooke wyckoff of Florida state, new head coach. She was interim before taking over in her first official year. Welcome to the show. Thank you, Daniel. And let's just be clear, ice plate against me when I was coaching. She is way younger than me. We didn't play against each other as basketball players. I just want to clarify that. For her sake, but I did go to against her when she was a player. I thought about that too. And I was like, are people on like, that's probably fine. It's no big deal. That way younger than me, but no, I'm super excited and thrilled to be here with you both. It's a great honor. I love this. This pod and so really appreciate you having me. Yeah, well, thank you for joining us, coach. One, it was fun playing against you, so to speak. We love the ACC love. So that's great. Daniel did mention this before we started that I did start the university of Florida, so we were sworn enemies at first, but I got rid of them. We moved on to better things. So now I can see love. So here we are. What you got, great resume, right? I mean, you know, four years standout FSU, one of the only four 7 also have your Jersey retired, played in the W for 8 years. And now you are officially a head coach, like under contract. It's no longer interim. It is the real thing and you're doing it. But walk us through that interim year. Just following up after stew, kind of going through everything. And then obviously COVID dealing with those things, you know, you kind of got your first started to head coach in a tough time, like in a tough circumstance. How did you raise your way through it? One day at a time, really, and that was kind of the blessing in disguise with being a coach during COVID and especially being a first time head coach, even though it was interim, was that COVID forced us all just to take it one day at a time because we had no idea nobody knew what was next and a lot of hard things were happening. And so it was a great way just to kind of rally the team together and under that just kind of theme of, hey, we're going to be grateful and have gratitude for every day that we have together, that every day that we're able to be healthy and to play basketball during this crazy time when so many hard things are going on. So it really was to enter into that role and before to just be in the moment because as you guys know, it just when you're leading something and there's so many things going on as a head coach. You can get wrapped up in all of the big picture and million details and your brain can go everywhere all the time. So that it was just like, we're here, we're practicing. We're going to see if we can play a game today. If not, we'll try again tomorrow. And so I learned a lot of just saying present and being grateful for what's in front of me. Yeah. That's awesome. My follow-up to that is, you know, culture is a big thing when we talk about basketball and teams and replacing Sue, right? And then doing that in the interim coaching here, which is kind of hard to establish your own culture, right? Because of course it's going to be different than anyone that follows is going to be unique to you and your experiences. How have you been able to establish your own culture this year? And really having some time to be able to do that outside of the season outside of being in a room right and firstly getting that space to do that. Yeah. Well, like you said, that is the most important thing. As we all know, being in sports is like you can have most amazing players. You can think you know all about the X's and O's, but if you don't have that foundation of a great culture, a solid culture, and people that buy into that culture, you're not going to, it's going to be really hard road. So fortunately, you know, having been here and having played and coached under someone that was an expert in establishing culture and having very consistent culture and coach Sue. I was able to build upon that, especially with the players that were here last year who kind of already knew what our program is about, philosophically, and really that we're about people first. We're about taking care of each other first and foremost. And so building on that and kind of putting my own spin on it based on really not necessarily who I am, but kind of what we need right now. I mean, this college athletics is changing the landscape. What college athletics means is changing all the time as we know. And college kids change. Just who people are in general and kind of the different pressures that each generation has year by year. All those things go into how we approach culture. And so, you know, starting with the basis of we're going to be about each other, starting with that. Now, I have established kind of our culture. And really what it is is we talk every day is that we're going to get closer and better as a team every day. That's our goal, you know? We want to win championships. Those are stops along the way. We want to win games, but if we can focus on that goal of really what it is is building culture will be just fine. Love it. I do want to go back to the fact that I don't think I've heard anybody throughout the COVID year talk about that situation. Use the word grateful. The flexibility adaptability to just go with games being canceled, reschedule, et cetera, and it all led you here to this. I mean, it's an awesome story. And I love a good narrative of someone who was a standout going back to their Alma mater. I think coach shoes, first year coaching, that was your freshman year, which is even crazier, but with the success you've had, not just the interim year, but just helping this program for so long. Was there ever a time that you thought and considered other coaching positions or this Florida state position always kind of your dream? That's a great question. And really, Florida state, you know, has been my home and it's been a huge part of who I am since I was 16, 17 years old, but I have been, this is my 12th year coaching at Florida state. So it's been a while. This has always been my first priority, and I did consider other opportunities came up over the years that I considered and looked at and talked to people, but I really knew that to get me out of here and especially while I was working for coach Sue. It was hard to top that in my mind in terms of a better situation for me and my growth. That was the most important thing, though, that I think was really critical. Was that coach Sue understood that I still needed to grow. So as long as I was doing that here at Florida state, I mean, each year I gained more responsibility each year, I was involved in more things within the program. And I became better and in every aspect of the job, that was still going on. So as long as that was there, I was like, it's hard to top this place, you know? ACC, we had a lot of success on the court. And I just love it here in Tallahassee at Florida state. It's family. So yes, I did entertain other opportunities as they came up. And got that experience with some interviewing things like that. But it always knew in my heart that if they wanted me here as an assistant or as a head coach, this would be my first choice. That's amazing. Well, I'm glad that it all worked out. It's like, you know, someone may write a book about it one day. And I'm not for reading. Now, I mean, how did somebody from, you know, the Midwest, Ohio, even end up until I see. I mean, the way you're talking about tall aspect, I feel like ice and I would need to go visit. Yeah, I've never been to tell I think. You never been.

"I know us giving ourselves a de facto biweek, not only from the football side, but haven't told worm that he may have to do it for state green as well. So it's a good thing that we've brought in some guest analysts to try and cover it. But to your point, the reason that our podcast has been so successful over the years since we started back in 2014 is it takes a lot for us to welcome someone into our fool and we've had weekly guests. We've had annual contributors and we feel they always added dimension to take what we do to the next level and Brad is the perfect embodiment. I think people are truly going to enjoy not just the 6 games where I get 6 and a half given the Boise state Oregon state breakdown that we saw today, but everything that they're going to get from Brad going forward. And again, we encourage you to follow Brad on Twitter at Brad power 7. He does a ton of media throughout the course of the week. So if there's games that we can't cover here, there is no doubt in some capacity, Brad is going to get to them. One way or another to try and peel back the curtain and some of the process. So no doubt about it, it's going to be one of the best seasons that we've had on the college side. But all that being said pain, we've done the homework. We've done the heavy lifting. We've talked about it at great lengths that, hey, look, week one can be difficult. Not necessarily from an efficiency standpoint, but so many of these numbers have been up for months. They're beaten their battered, and I know a lot of our listeners are clamoring for what will be our first regular season best bet. But unfortunately, it's not the same market that we're betting into when we will be on Wednesdays throughout the course of this season. So I preface all I say all of that to preface our best bet that, hey, look, we tried to dig. We went far and wide, and I'm very curious where you've identified the week one investment opportunity. Yeah, don't necessarily love giving out something this quickly. But to your point, the market's a little beaten up at this point. We're actually going to a game that is this evening. And it's a game that we broke down. It'll be timestamped above if you want to go back and hear what Brad and I had to say along with Todd, but it's rotation number one four three. We're going to go with the West Virginia mountaineers team total. Under 21 and a half points. Just basic synopsis going back to what we discussed already. We think Pittsburgh's offense is going to be a little bit more methodical running the ball chewing clock. That means less possessions for West Virginia Pittsburgh's defense returns a slew of returning production, probably one of the top ten defensive lines. They also return a ton of guys in the secondary as well. Help combat JT Daniels. That passing offense, not a ton of weapons for West Virginia either. Lost their best running back, lost their best pass catcher. I think this game is going to be a little bit lower scoring and we see that in the totals market for both teams. We saw some money come in under there. Pittsburgh obviously took some money as well. So this lends itself to a nice little correlation to West Virginia's team total under. Again, under 21 and a half points there for West Virginia. It's always amazing on these podcasts. It's 6° of stetson Bennett separation here. And so we know you're the leader of the stats and been a fan club. You take shots at JT Daniels, Brad comes off the top ropes, and he doesn't think JT's as good as anybody out there. But to your point, I think it could operate in fits and spurts. This is a West Virginia team that's had a very disrupted camp as far as continuity with their starting quarterback. And the one thing we know about Pitt is how tenacious they are in their defensive front. I'm just thrilled as a college football fan that this backyard brawl is back in the mix. They're saying it could be a record crowd at whatever the hell they're calling it now for me it'll always behind field. So we're going to root for West Virginia's offense to struggle. And let's hope and our doozy decide to run the football run it early, run it off and bleed that clock and get us out of Dodge, keeping West Virginia comfortably under that number. So my friend, first regular season podcast, officially in the books. I know it probably went a little bit longer than you anticipated by. I really felt like all the information out there was presented as succinct manner. I know there were a lot of marquee games that people are going to run to try and bet. So hopefully we gave them enough nuggets to justify whatever positions they want to take over the weekend. This was a podcast that as we were recording and we're like, boy, Tom time just flew. It was very fluid in our conversations and discussions. But I will say it ran a little long. But there was just a ton of marquee games that were covering multiple days. I think we'll have a little bit more of a normalized schedule moving forward and not so many marquee matchups that we need to deep dive into. I think we'll end up getting these back at the normal rate of time that we had last year. And that 75 minute mark. Hey, anytime you integrate new pieces, the cadence is always a little bit different, but the information remains best in class. And that's what you guys have come to expect. Whereas list longtime listeners are the bet the board podcast. I know it's the college show and I should have introduced it towards the top. But again, I want to remind all of you as we've done throughout the course of our NFL previews. We have a great NFL contest that we encourage all of you to sign up for.

"A positive, I think, for Florida state is watching that game and watch how Mike norvell attacked O'Brien, Kelly coach defense. I thought he had the better Brian Kelly both matchups the last couple of years. I thought he had Brian Kelly figured out at least on that side of the ball. Now, different players, different maybe system, but still I think that's at least noteworthy. To me, and obviously pain is going to go much more into the matchups more in depth than me. But I think not only who covers this game, but ultimately who wins this game comes down to how the Florida state offensive line and it feels like a broken record year after year. How do they hold up against what I do think is LSU's strength on their entire team, their defensive line. Flashing the spring game. Obviously has had a good fall camp. How that matchup goes. The floor state can just hold their own a little bit. If you answer yes to that question, I think four states obviously a live dog here. If they can't match up well and they can't handle all issues defensive line, then obviously it's going to be a long Sunday Night for mister Payne. You know, pain, I think Brad let us perfectly. I mean, when you look at LSU, all three of their team captains named earlier this week come on the defensive side of the ball. Ali gay up front, BJ O jalari and Mike Jones junior was also named preseason first team all SEC. We know how big a deal it is for players down there on the Bayou to wear the number 18. But what's interesting when you dig into his numbers, 5 and a half of his sacks came in non conference play more so than against SEC caliber opposition. But the big player to watch mason Smith, who's drawing all sorts of comparison to one of LSU's great defensive tackles in Glenn Dorsey, does Florida state finally have enough in the trenches to at least slow down LSU's defensive front. That's the biggest question on this side of the ball. And I think it also within that is Ken FSU run efficiently to keep from being in these known passing situations where LSU's defensive line can pin their ears back and get after Jordan Travis. And the one thing that we saw this year, Florida state went out, enhanced their depth and raised the floor of the offensive line room with the transfer portal and a lot of the freshmen they brought in. I don't think there's any question about that. But I do think it's difficult to say with conviction that the ceiling was raced. And I know Maurice Smith was added back to the depth chart on Tuesday. I'd say he's 50 50 at best. If Smith can't go, Florida states on their third string center now. The other interesting part is when you do look at LSU, some of the metrics and the priors that carry over. I don't know if they're good comps. You looked at LSU last year. They were 89th and adjusted line yards. There were 93rd opportunity rate. You could run on them. But there's some noise in those numbers due to all the injuries and how much did they actually care. If LSU can contain F issues ground game, you could have a similar situation to last year where Florida state struggled in these known situations to block 2.3 seconds was the average time it took for pressure to arrive in known passing situations. A 159 total pressures allowed in a 37% pressure rate. When you only factor third down in third down and known passing situations where, again, defenses have one goal, kill the quarterback. After a lot of 44% pressure rate and 18% sack rate. And that led to an FSU offense that was a 117th in late down success rate. I think we know F issues made some concerted efforts to enhance their screen pass game specifically with Micah Pittman. That's one way to combat pressure with the quick pass attack. The running backs do a really good job catching it out of the backfield and to Brad's point they went extremely vanilla and just ran the ball, but I think you'll see you guys like to trash on ward catch balls out of the backfield this game. Heading into the season. Brad hit it perfectly. LSU strength is their defensive line. BJ jalari 15% pressure rate on pass rushing snaps. Ally gay, his season was cut short, but through four games, 16% pressure rate on pass rush snaps on the interior you mentioned mason Smith. He was a top 20 recruit. The word is he's in much better shape. But he didn't really have the best freshman season. You also got Makai wingo a four star transfer from Missouri who played well as a freshman up the middle. And then you have Roy as well who graded out the best returning LSU defender. I think we're going to see just a completely different LSU defense this season. They're going to be buttoned up. You're going to see more energy and effort. I am obviously familiar with Matt house, former Kansas City Chiefs linebacker coach. He spent time as Kentucky's D.C. with Mark stoops. He was fantastic there. House inherited a Kentucky defense that was 93rd in schedule adjusted efficiency two seasons later, Kentucky was 15th. My gut says LSU's secondary is also better than people think chemistry certainly a question mark in game one because there's so many new faces, but you look at the guys they brought in. Bernard converse, right? Transfers in from Oklahoma state. He graded out the poke second best player in the secondary on a historically good Oklahoma state defense that finished top 5. Garner the Louisiana transfer. He's been one of the most valuable corners the last two seasons and then Colby Richardson put on 20 pounds this off season. He's flashed in camp getting a lot of first team reps. The LSU defense. In a hostile environment, that could give FSU's offense some troubles here. You mentioned the hostile environment. I'll come right back to you. When you look at this number, do you feel that there's enough home field advantage built into this price? Is that why you think we're at three instead of this game maybe being closer to a pickup if it was a true neutral type atmosphere? So I know Brad didn't divulge and I don't want to spoil his party, but this open substantially higher. It's 6, 6 and a half earlier this summer. I know Brad and I talked about the game. We thought that was a little bit high. And it got all the way down to two and a half. And then some of the reports about LSU being substantially more buttoned up, even though they don't quite have the depth. We saw a move back the other way. It got down, guys were laying LSU minus two and a half. It feels like I'm sitting somewhere in the 3.4 range because you do have to factor in a home field advantage for LSU here with the game being in the Superdome. Can I say something? From the reports that I have read, four states hold 30,000 plus tickets to this. So I don't know if it's going to be as hostile as what some people are making it out to be. I mean, quasi home game with it being a New Orleans. No, I think there's four states going to be very well represented. I hope so I hope so. I do think there is going to be a home field adventure. Where does that stadium hold? Is that like 90,000 something like that? I did give LSU a little bit of a home field advantage. No, I did anything in your numbers, Brad. Okay. Yeah, yeah.

"I guess one of the questions that where I'm going with this as far as the offense, do you think Todd munken is going to be more aggressive knowing he's got a veteran quarterback, especially against they head coach in landing who knows about George's personnel. These groups are intimately familiar with one another. I mean, this feels like one of the more fascinating matchups, not just in this football game itself, but maybe in the entire weekend of seeing cat and mouse. Yeah, there is this cat and mouse element to it, obviously. When you're playing Georgia and this is far easier said than done. But the teams that have played George of the last two seasons in either one or kept it close have put the bulldog quarterbacks in negative game scripts. It rarely happens in the last time it did happen. It was the national championship against Alabama. And stetson Bennett played his way through it. But there's two ways to put Georgia in a neutral or negative game script. The first way is obviously through your offense and building a lead. The second way is being able to stop the run a little bit. That's an interesting element here. If you look at stats and Bennett's numbers last year, it wasn't put into many known passing situations. That's why George's offense was number one in EPA per pass and had a 26% explosive pass rate. It was always comfortable. But again, going back to the last two seasons where they have struggled either covering a spread or losing the game, it's 2020 against Alabama. Georgia trailed by double digits in the third quarter and stetson Bennett was forced to throw and he completed 45% of his passes, had three picks finished with a negative EPA. 2020 against Florida, the Gators built a double digit halftime lead offense got out. Bennett and math is completed 31% of their passes that game had a negative VPA. Cincinnati kept it within three in the peach bowl. They built a lead and then held the Georgia running backs to less than three and a half yards per carry. And then again in 2021, you had the season opener against Clemson and then the SEC championship game against Bama, Clemson held Georgia running backs to 4.6 in the SEC championship game, Bama built the lead, held Georgia running backs to 4.2. So that's kind of the formula, but can you do it? Bill the lead or stuff the run. Dan landing went against Todd munchkins offense every day at practice. He sat in those meetings with Kirby discussing every weakness and tendency stetson Bennett has interestingly, if you divide last season's Georgia's offensive line. They were better as pass blockers than run blockers. Georgia's own line is run blockers, had a 19% error rate. They finished 39th and adjusted line yards 77th in power success rate, 54th and stuff run rate allowed. That's why they were outside the top 70 and EPA per rush. Now, I know Oregon was completely bullied and the two games against Utah last season they finished outside the top 80 in line yards themselves. But everything we're hearing out of the ducks camp is at the front 7 is solid. It's going to surprise a lot of people, the unit is substantially healthier heading into the season than how it finished last year. The other area to, I think, look for on this side of the ball. And it would make me nervous, and I think Brad hit it perfectly is George's tight ends against the organ linebackers. And I think we mentioned this in our PAC 12 preview and covering the ducks. But Noah sewell, 6 two, 260 pounds. He's best as a downhill run defender in a pass rusher. He graded out well below average in coverage. Justin flow is supremely talented. He can move pretty well. But the small sample we have on him due to injuries is he's got 43 coverage snaps. He's allowed an 86% reception rate for 11.3 yards per catch in a one 47 passer rating in those coverage snaps. The dogs tight ends are just going to come at you in waves. They go four deep now, Oscar delp is surging. He adds to that group with Brock Bowers Darnell Washington and Eric Gilbert. That'll be the area where I think Georgia potentially has an advantage. Using their tight ends, putting multiple on the field at once and attacking those duck linebackers in the past game. Oregon is going to have to do something to try and get stats and bend it off his spot. So we'll see if their defensive line who you mentioned has been getting rave reviews, but we know things are a little bit differently in the work a little differently in the pack 12 than they do in the SEC. But coach landing will have to scheme up unique ways to get pressure, not allowing benet to operate from a clean pocket and utilize that extremely talented tight end room. That is hands down the best in the country with a variety of skill sets. They bring to the table. Brad, when you look at this Oregon offense, we know that they bring in bow nicks from auburn, so he's familiar having played Georgia multiple times during his career. Reunited with offensive coordinator Kenny dillingham as well. When you look at Nick's numbers overall, 21 and 13 is a starter over 7000 passing yards less than 7 yards per attempt. Did improve his decision making a little bit, but overall 39 touchdown passes to 16 interceptions. The big talk throughout the spring and we saw some of it on full display during that spring game was trying to identify those explosive play, something that was inconspicuous in Oregon's offense. They just weren't able to connect on it last year. When you look at this Oregon offense, questions abound about their running back depth, their wide receiver depth. Do you feel they're going to be able to find some level of success attacking this Georgie? I have some doubts. To say the least. But I came away liking what I saw from Morgan at least in their spring game. Defense is a little bit different than George's defense what they'll face. Bone X right out of the gate. It's throwing down the field. And they got some down to wide receivers. One thing that you can question the X's and Mario crystal ball, but he did do a good job recruiting. They have a lot of experience on the offense a line. So that should help them hold up. I did find it a little bit. Maybe disconcerting that for all the great recruiting classes that Mario crystal ball has. They're relying on a lot of transfers. Starting with nicks, I actually thought maybe the best wide receiver in the spring game was chase coda. I thought an afterthought pretty much at UCLA, but he was flashing left and right in the spring game.

"Mine Williams really hasn't had a chance. 81 total career carries. He's broken 40 tackles in those carries. The other thing that's interesting is what we've seen from Al golden's defenses in the past. He wants to play man coverage. He wants to blitz. I don't really know if you can do that against CJ Stroud. He's in the 99th percentile and sack rate taken when you look Stroud has a 10% pressure to sack rate. If Al gold and the lex to play this high variance style of blitzing CJ Stroud, Brad hit it perfectly. I don't know if Notre-Dame has the secondary to hold up in coverage. And I get it. You look at the metrics last year Notre-Dame was third and opponent adjusted EPA pass defense. Many times, the group does look like it's better than the sum of its parts, past cam heart at corner. Who is there? The safety duo was nice of DJ Brown and then you have the northwestern transfer Brandon Joseph. But there's questions about coverage past those three guys. I think Ryan day is going to put Notre-Dame linebackers in conflict with some of those route trees. His tight ends. You look at JD Bertrand starting middle linebacker. He has been a liability in coverage. Look for him to be picked on a little bit there. I just don't see many matchups that give Notre-Dame a fighting chance here. And I think that's the reason we've seen Ohio State take money all summer. We did see a small buyback when it reached 17 and a half, 18. I think the next move around that through score Mark will be the most telling one knowing limits are the highest right now than they've been at any point leading up to this game. It would not stun me. If we saw another tick back up on game day. Before we put a bow on this game gentlemen, I want to see if either of you had one other element or nuggets that you want to include. Obviously, like to be as comprehensive as we can, figuring that this will be the most watch game on the entire one. A long-term trend for Notre-Dame. Because there are obviously there's this narrative that Notre-Dame does not perform well in big games. So I'll ask you guys this. Do you think Ohio State finishes in the top ten this season? That's very bad news for Notre-Dame. Last 30 years against teams that finish in the top ten, 5 and 44 straight up. Against the spread, I think this is more telling. 27% against the spread. 49 games against teams have finished in the top ten, failing to cover by 7 points per game. Mainly doesn't matter. The coach has changed. Players changed, but the reality is, I mean, Notre-Dame as a program does not step up in these types of moments against teams that can out talent. I was going to say Brad, that all can't be heaped on Brian Kelly's shoulder and explain why he had a lead for Baton Rouge. He gained that we'll get to later in the show, but that's just wild. When you talk about such a proud program and when they step up in class, how poorly they fare, not just from a straight up standpoint, but more importantly, at the betting window, since we know the point spread is the great equalizer. As we talked about, two big games still to go, Georgia, Oregon, on the horizon, as well as Sunday showdown between Florida state. And LSU, but want to take a slightly divergent path with a new segment we're going to try and introduce this year on the podcast and we're still working the name a little bit. But gentlemen, I think we settled on non powers 5 or something like that. But if we have creative listeners by all means make suggestions, we're always happy to incorporate. And Brad wanted to get your take on a game that won't involve too power 5 opponents doing battle this weekend that's really cool. I've been picking on pain here. And now it's my turn to get after you a little bit, Todd. For the non power 5 game. It features one group of 5 team, but the other team is actually a power 5 team. Maybe not historically. But it's Boise state against Oregon state. And I'm here to tell you, I know you love Jonathan Smith. I love Jonathan Smith. I love the beavers, but you're gonna dash my dreams here of everything I've tried to build from a loyal fan base in Corvallis. I like Boise state in the matchup. Now we've seen money come in on Boise state, all summer. I'm a part of it. I think Boise state, after a season where record wise, we're seasoned in two decades. I thought diving in and I'm statistically the Broncos were much better than that 7 and 5 record. And being as experienced as they are coming back and now second year under Andy avilos. And the fact as much as I love Jonathan Smith hasn't done well in openers, hasn't covered an opener in his tenure. Boise state, a game that I think is really intriguing. I think it's the best late game, obviously it's a very late start, but it's one of the better games of the weekend. Keep an eye on this one. Boise state might be actually a play on team, at least early in the season. I'm actually going to fade Todd Furman's beloved Oregon state beavers. Hey, you know what? I can't really argue with you. There are some question marks at quarterback, especially for Oregon state. I don't think they have the playmakers on the outside early on in the years. They lost some experience at receiver or even in the backfield, which also might further substantiate why you're seeing dog and undertake money knowing how good Andy avalos is defense is supposed to be. But I did want to ask Brad because pain and I have been relatively critical of avalos, at least in his one season, they're not sure what to expect. But when you look at him and Hank Bach Meyer, do you feel like this is the year they're finally able to break through and achieve some of the lofty accolades that people are heaping on them. Maybe question. And it's probably the answer to that is going to be whether or not I win this bet. I mean, going back not to put a needle in the pain, but man, you go back to that opener. His first start, he took a beating against Florida state by kept coming back. Time and time again just has never really lived up to that opening game that he had several

"SRA designations awarded by the appraisal institute, not many people have those. The MAI is often considered the equivalent of doctor at level work in the field of commercial real estate valuation.

Rather than somebody who I've faced, I've literally never seen before in many instances. But the first thing we got to talk about is how it all began for you. Like, how old were you when you know a career as a finance guy became the choice, you know? How old were you when you said this is it I found it, let's do it. Great question. It's funny I was I was about two weeks away from going back to finish up my last semester in engineering school. I'd already been accepted at FSU into the NBA program and my dad says to me, hey, I want you to go get your real estate license. Now, keep in mind two weeks I'm in the middle of my vacation break before I go back to school. And the last thing in the world I want to do is go sit in a classroom for a week and get a real estate license. Had no interest in it at all or so I thought. But I did it. My dad said, go do it, so I did it. And what's funny is the very first day within the first hour we start discussing real estate valuation and appraising. And I don't know what it was, but I instantly knew that that's what I wanted to do. There was no question in my mind. That's what I wanted to do. So I finished up the engineering degree, went to MBA school while I was there. I worked for an appraisal company. And then went on with a full-time actor. So that was that moment..

"It really will Maybe winning a division would be almost similar to winning a conference championship in the future I still know how exactly they're gonna have the conference championship but You would think that would be sort of the way to do it And then of course the football playoff there could be four or five teams that could get into the final twelve if that's what occurs so You know i always used to think man the objects that when you're a conference championship and was sixteen powerful teams that i don't know what the object you'd feel loved to win your conference championship. There's gotta be some other goes in there because only one of the sixteen is going to be the champion so It's it's a little bit different than what we used to do. In in terms of playing nine conference games I'm curious that's seemingly where we're going here do you. i mean i may be out of necessity. But how how does that change the calculus For for everyone in the sec. Especially i mean you were south carolina. You had great successor with top ten finishes for a number of years but but south carolina's on different plane right now so are other schools. You conference game that. That's not exactly a bargain. If you're trying to move on up yes exactly right. People's records are not going to be very good. I remember pepper rodgers. Used to always say coats is about as good as his players had his schedule. And now everybody's gonna have a lot more difficult schedule whereas in the old days I remember one year I just happened to look at texas. A m's Four out of conference games and they they weren't any big schools whatsoever and then you know here. We weren't playing. Fsu and some of these people and then south carolina playing clemson and all of that so scheduling does have a lot to do with your record. And some of these sec's schools. Don't have very good records. So i guess they. They got anticipate as far as the end of the the end of the season games. Which you know i it. A lot of these games are in jeopardy Do you think the gator should continue playing. Fsu year yeah. I think so. I think the fans won't it just like clemson south carolina so And that's why we're sorta surprised way back when texas and texas saying quit playing each other just because Jumped over our conference but Yeah those games are important. I think but Again we'll we'll have to wait and see how plays out. I guess we'll coach. It is always great to have you on cannot wait to hear more about the restaurant and you continue to be well and we will see you very soon. I hope okay. Thanks paul always good to talk to you. You gotta coach spurrier dropping some knowledge on on texas saying if you're going to struggle in the big twelve might as well struggle in the sec. I think he said they can't do any worse. coach always making friends in In new places.

"The colonel back in the garage talking with skip jansen about his person of interest dp and we will not stop. We've been working this case since the beginning spending hours upon hours outside of the garage talking with people and that's how we got hooked up with skip and his person of interest the there's so much to it that sense and so much that is still confusing but one of the things that's confusing. Why would they go with his sketch above a sketch that they had beforehand. I think i think it was a lot of it. Had to do what they saw on on the video. They thought maybe they saw. They saw an older guy. And i think it's important. Remember law enforcement was really emphasizing. You know about the younger face you know. Pay attention to his what his body is moves all of his all of that not not his face. I think the the video is not good representation of that and what law enforce early on. Thought they were looking at somebody who looked more like wind up in the first sketch than the second skit. Yeah i think what you've seen the picture of bg or you see the video bg. Your mind goes towards older gentleman. You see the second sketching of wow. That is not anything like. I pictured this person way younger. I think people still believe that you know. I think they see it in their mind that they that they see an older person. They and they can't get that they can't they can't change that they just got burned in the in the brain. I still think people were baffled by this case because in two thousand nineteen th press conference. They release the image of a way younger-looking individual saying he's between eighteen and forty well and at that point. That was when dp recanted his story and said that maybe he didn't see that guy. Maybe he saw flannel short guy. 'cause he realized that flannel shirt guy was in close proximity to where he was during the time on the trails or steady was so but he but again the scarf to me is the big takeaway if he saw somebody with scarf that he claimed was. Bg than now. You're saying that you may have seen fsu was effigy wearing. A scarf is well. He would've had to have been. I've never heard any evidence that. Fsu was wearing a scarf that day so it made a debt again. Just something else. That doesn't really line up with what he's saying he constantly is changing his story So confusing but also the picture there released in two thousand nineteen the predominant feature to me is the hair and there's rumors that he changes appearance after that. But what is dp doing between two thousand seventeen in two thousand nineteen Before that press conference that he stakes. He's he's gotten away with scot free. You gotta you've got a sketch out there that looks nothing like fbi said one of the things this might do. Changes appearance Well he wouldn't have any reason changes appearance. If the sketch didn't look anything like him right he actually did change. His appears after the two thousand nineteen press conference in the new sketch him out. Jay said greybeard so that would fall in line more with what they were what they were talking about. What i also feel like The two thousand nineteen press conference when they come out with information about the via corn asking for the driver. It's almost like they know who they're talking about. I think there was a lot of there will probably questions about that day. Hickel and who was in that vehicle and when it was there and who drove there and all that originally and i think they probably led off with that because they wanted him to know that they figured out how that all you know how it all went down and they'd been lied to about that. I think that's i think that's one thing i think that's one thing that people are misunderstanding. About one of the things about the case is that law enforcement. I was led astray for the first couple years. This case because of all of this because volvo misdirection in false information. They've admitted that there were alibis. That didn't didn't add up newspaper articles about it so when you see that. Is that where you go. Hey here's this guy online. He's saying i'm i'm at i witness. Here's here's the people as with all nope. Nope that's who us with some other people right so now we got a guy online saying i'm i witness there. He's changing his story but then his alibis quote unquote. His alibis would be changing their story as well. And then you see that happening online. And the new c. This language being used by please is that what sparks you to go. I think this guy should be a person of interest absolutely. Yeah i mean have getting law enforcement false information as is the reason people do it. I mean it saab. If you come forward. You're the expectation is you're telling the truth there's you know there's there's a reason you're trying to send him down one path and so yeah that's dance your question. Yeah that's exactly. Why looked into him as a person veterans so you think two thousand nineteen there directly talking to your person of interest dp. Can you explain that a little bit more. I think. I think a lot of things i think. Just about everything they said in their. You know the fact that somebody this guy had been has been following the case. And that's that's one another thing is that one of the reasons law enforcement has been so skittish about about releasing stuff is not because they don't have anything or not because you know they're june for another reason law enforcement isn't releasing information because they know this guy is following it and using that information to his benefit. Okay that that's pretty obvious. So that's one of the things. I think that The lease of the sketch was out. There everything changed disgust. This guy was not talking anymore. He didn't seem so eager to get wanna get his story out there. But i think everything they said and it was very pointed at particularly at at one individual. Get over the fact that after this press conference were they won their turning a new direction or taking the new direction. But they're point the whole conference to the killer. This is calling out the killer and then to have this person of interest change their appearance after the press conference. I have a real hard time getting over that. Yeah he yeah exactly and his his hair was you know. I know sketches not a photo but his hair was would depend similar before he shaved it to. What you what you saw in the sketch. When when do you know when he started pulling away from online chats and not long after not long after that one of the exact day but not long after the press conference you mentioned earlier about some of the things that were said. I think that when they said directly to the killer might be in this two. We believe you're hiding in plain sight and the part about you never thought we would shift gears to a different Investigative strategy that. That goes to what i said about think he thought he was. He got away with. You never thought you know. They knew that he knew there was another sketch. But you know. He never thought that they were gonna change to that. And i think that was that was that was them making him aware that kind of the jig is up. They also said that they've likely interviewed him. We know he went and talked to law enforcement. He was making some statements about talking with law enforcement online. He stayed online that he went there and talked law enforcement a couple of times as saying that he was there trying to help him. That was his. That was the word to us he was. He was a good samaritan destroying to help out so again changes his story. He was there Again changed the story multiple times with changing. His appearance. Were always told the lookout for that. Then we have a i witness. That is now lawyer. Earn.

CONFERENCE PREVIEW: The ACC has Virginia in the catbird seat, with Duke, North Carolina, Florida State and Louisville all giving chase
"So in our rankings, it goes Virginia North Carolina like you pointed out after that it's Florida State Louisville but you had those in The Opposite Order Louisville Florida State I. I think you can argue either way, but you mentioned you talk to the North Carolina staffer. Recently, I talked to somebody at Florida state. Within the past week and they were openly wondering if they if this team. was going to be better than last season's team and last season's team of course, won the ACC, and so I take that for whatever it's worth but. In Tallahassee they think they've got a they think they've got a team that's going to finish. Fifth in the fourth or fifth in the ACC. What's interesting here is I know and Louisville's also. I think quietly really in on their roster I. think There's a line after Florida State and Louisville another tier if you will. When we get to the teams after that? I listen. I. Have Been Wrong about FSU LIKE I say it was good humor here but be tournament picks or general projections I have been off on Fsu more often than been correct. Efficacy was twenty, six and five when the ACC last season and lost Trent forest loss Patrick Williams lost Devin for cell I mean those are the teams four best players they're not that it doesn't still have talent but. That would be just a hell of a deal there. If Leonard Hamilton could make that happen to combine them with Louisville, real, quick I I actually think. It's I think that Louisville can be close to what Lewis last season it was ninth and Ken Palm. It went twenty, four seven it loses all five of its starters but. I just again legit because we're doing this in real time like just like David Johnson Samuel Williamson are are two names that are that in my opinion need to be on our top one, hundred one players and then they bring carly. Jones in from Radford who apparently might be their best player and You know it could be a twenty two point. Game Guy. is going to have a different look to them this season. The top of the ACC is totally fascinating I. Really do think it's Virginia and the other four we've mentioned. Almost, put them in any order. I can't quite see Louisville being top team in the league I can't get there but I think it could be super competitive and everyone below Virginia they're is GonNa make for an interesting race we had in our voting Miami coming in at six and then Syracuse at seven and it's interesting like. Last season I remember talking about this briefly and then you know pain. Democrats and everything's over. So whatever. But. Here's Syracuse. Again picked seventh in our preseason poll ACC poll. In terms of the panelists, some people had them as low as nine. I think you had eight I had him seven. So I'm more of a believer than most but. How many times do you think Syracuse has finished in the top five in the ACC in the past six seasons? Trivia Thanh. Say Zero Zero is the answer two, thousand fifteen eighth two, thousand, sixteen, Ninth, two, thousand, seventeen seventy, two, thousand, eighteen, tenth, two, thousand, nine, hundred, seventh last season six, zero, top. Top five finishes in the League Past Seasons there are twenty, eight and twenty, eight in the. Past. Three seasons they had a surprising final four in two, thousand sixteen and a surprising sweet sixteen in two thousand eighteen. So that Ma- ask some of this, but it is undeniable that. For, one reason or another you know that's one of the biggest brains in college basketball and it hasn't been operating like one of the biggest brains in college basketball lately,
