Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. S6E6 Inescapable Review - Super Tuesday Recap

"Welcome back to switch is recapture host chris andy palm here and we're here to review season six episode six of asia shield inescapable 'em yeah this is the fitzsimmons episode that we didn't know we need i i this is one of the ones i had a review i it's it's it it it it feels like we offer the season this is the season that's giving us is relying in not only is it just a season of all this last few seasons have relied heavily on the character development they've put together so far you know it's so funny earlier today we reviewed and we were gonna lose back to back a but some really they view the first part of season three of young justice right in we were talking about how that season and it just it feels so if it works out so well because of what we know of the character in what they do not not from the comics but from what they've done you know on the show itself in that this show that's asian shield doing that again it gives us so much like it's it's a whole episode of basically fits in simmons reestablishing wise fitzsimmons are are basically one well and also this is something where packs how we got here andrews affectively in this in this arms a lot of attention that we kind of could be carried over that got explored season for mhm they did a good job of this using that and also making important market growth for a senate i don't know what i'm talking about subversively so i watched it since i don't watch the second hoses and she just she said i don't think there's a better show on television that better written show on television in that the things that have happened since we've never really seen the fallout of yeah like you're having to offer refreshing it's wearing the shirt that's used very mature sucks the portal to a novice it's it's a it's a paint on her from being a mute slave like yeah she's been through a lot of shit yeah even even like the decision in season five just say were not gonna show really shows a memorial service first kiss first me for call or not gonna show unfair we kind of evil i think we talk a little off of like somebody who's i disagreed with him that stand now see six but now a game and so there's no place for like a week and still cover that even the skin wherever they wait for it wait until cover it and it's it was so nice because if you didn't watch season four or five accuse me that was a refresher but if you did it gives you the payoff 'cause he hit the ground running it's been a year since he eventually last season their space and fed says this is kind of been let's go let's go let's go this is a good moment for the bogus story they say what steel was the rest of this 'cause there is more than just saying it happened is bad let's move on well well to be fair we hit the ground every one and so them going all the way back to when they when when they drown in the winter in the team in unit and they're like fussing in he's like why did you find something doesn't have any like it's a containment units have air and you go through all this on what what they went through all the way back then it's like you're right they they had the moment they came together and you're like oh fitzsimmons they're gonna be together right but this is a couple right communication so key in couple being a couple and being there for each other is why it's so funny to me i would have loved this i would love to know 'cause like this is like a couple of episodes this episode where hey even at you're worse you guys were so there there's sometimes it means disagreeing sometimes it means being angry of as a person but that doesn't mean that you're not you can't facing together in that you need a break up a slight i knew win win hydro fits in the the manifestation everything the that that a m who's going through like making out because that is still there it's still fitzsimmons even at their worst they're still together in 'em when they had the argument and they were like they sort of i love you love you too and you were just like okay so now we got out of the way we could go in face or demons together right yeah okay let's go do that you're just like but that's that's that's that's what successful couples if it doesn't i mean everything sparkling it doesn't mean that everything is blooming and everything works the way it's supposed to work and there's always gonna be that all some communication doesn't mean you won't her each other's i mean there are no ups and downs but at the end of the day good couples come together despite all of that stuff they work it out and then they go in that scene that you you you you work out like he's beating me and i still work it out with him it's like it's like the normal but this is what people mean when they say work things out of the right this is a healthy see see the normal way and i wanna say normal in the show but like this is this is what they mean when when they say that in that's what the show is and just seeing each of them because again i think it was a good like like you said a good reminder you're all of a sudden simmons herself has been through quizzical fits 'cause fits you know had the brain injury to die like we have all this stuff but we've kind of forgotten that you know simmons has been through just as much terrible stuff i we think about going to the plane like that's the big thing but like you said i almost forgot what i can't believe i'm afraid of last season like her being the slave right you know that some there you you have that stuff happening you're like oh wait yeah oh damn she's she's she's been to a fucking like you know the fact that you know it wasn't just that ship sheehan abandon fits win pitches injury it's like there is so much going on at the time and she does what she does she marries her pain she berries and repressive the things that her shorting the market she puts in a box and you know what there's also explain so we always say it's like man yo yo fit susil someone just which puts puts a switch and she turned into like almost like a psychopathic killer like when did it happen you're like oh she worked in the box and then when she needs to see out of the box and go fucking fucking nuts so yeah it's just this is just a really well well done away fits finding out about his own death and then call it that you and i get why she's second because if she seeing how close that mania turns into psychosis mhm yeah she seen among you've been through so much i didn't want overwhelm you he's wildly balkan you're being titles like why this is why yeah yeah i i said she kinda you know the the framework thing kind of stuck with you bring you any not just for you you already have a kind of a damn it rained to begin with because of what happened in the indices one you know so you kind of already are already a little damage so and then you've got hydra fit to honestly i'm sorry do you think you could play in the shadows without me i was terrified is very very terrifying i'm sorry leopold let's call him by his proper name but then her her calling outfits were you made a robot girlfriend oh yeah yeah i i love the fact that he threatened to bring up eight a m that's how you run back adult adult like oh why don't why just go and go and think of ellen de maybe that could help me don't you know i always gives you back and she's she's gone but i shit yeah you like that wasn't that wasn't that wasn't totally right maybe i should kept dealing with a seventy year old it's totally worth it right but again like i said this is in in in in this is why when i told you last week i was like we gotta get a pit sums up on over ready for it that's what i was talking about how saw what they were doing my oh man going through their mind fitzsimmons simmons it's wow it's gonna be wow in like going back looking for what lessons fun but also necessary in eight gives us like you said there there are other season there other shows that would take seasons picks to get fitzsimmons back up to where i mean this is simmons dealing this pitch coming through the terms that paradoxes knox's that he died in in his past but it was a future self will say like it's just it's so much stuff right it's it's so much that gets thrown at him in that would have taken seasons the idea of him finding out that they're already married you know that they then she he already proposed at all the that would have taken that would have been shows whole back half of it are right yeah in this show does it in forty four minutes i forty two minutes right an end gets to the point where were we get that moment when they're just like you know what we are all these things going on but you know what i so love you you still love me let's go out here in also realizing that not just that but then we also have a friend we have each other that's another important piece we have each other but we also have our friends in are friends helpless and the fact that you know i love the fact that he brought up because again max director right now so we're not really seeing a lot of emotion for mac right now oh the fact that you know sitting in front of the fact that yeah mexican heart you know not just hurt we see how the human fall sin is trying to like how do you do we tell his mother yeah yeah also all logistical should get removed because you're gonna be you're passing just kinda he kinda breeze past the you know what if they can't find it yeah what do we do 'em colson going up to simmons and telling her you've got a job to do you know do it if he's still up there then then then go do it go go get him back you know coming out of all of his deathbed because he's sick in bits finding out that colson is sick and dying the entire time like all this stuff is so much is there's so much they crammed into this one episode and then and then did you all day will come back to this episode and then in the end they basically in the little senior the end they have mac talking to date it gets up like a quick thirty seconds it's like a lot of us also find out definitively that the chronicles was taken by the truth yes yeah yeah kind of just i love the fact that she stepped in his own moment he's like oh okay yeah logic and susan made the steelers here that here right and then they joe who don't look like what exactly yeah those those those rental is my moment moment you got another one though when you get next week and she finds out that does they got they got holding his iphone come in and so you know i i'm like i'm almost went don't tell her she could find out she's like well southern find out i know it sounds weird but this fall so 'em yeah i a yeah i it just you know the way this show is able to just get to the point i can again that's another moment that would've taken like all of the next episode right the least exposition of like opening scene of them all i talked to the walk and talk maybe the fucking circle trick where everyone's you do look when it comes to write this that it just like not here it is simple dumped in in in in moved up to the point of dave even those who come and he's like oh so yeah they're the same people the detroit okay cool unicef sides here all right all right right in in and i love that in in it's what the show does so well you know it is turning in the fact those episodes basically one long therapy session for two of the character's that in a way or some of the most damage on the show you know lemos in a way who's been through more season issue i mean he's always david has been through a lot he he died david vetter mom back who died dad back in mind way yeah all very tragic thing and then find out yeah she's asking human in orange shit right hey guys it's gonna go through what fits is been through mhm he will drown brain damage but back from said brain damage professor local woman who loved had her taken away five she knows all the alien planet but that she fell in love all of a sudden they implanted with what may or may not have been in alien any human god then you build a robot robot that nearly killed everyone terrorizes a simmons and then you end up in his also zero reliving entire life as a nazi then before he could probably apologize you're friends were all taken in the future you go on a private war decide to freeze yourself with these years not that his face is asking literally kill people to stay alive and across universe find her again then find out that not only has already happened but you succeeded you saved her ending you dine you're already married to the woman she heard rules for in that you find that definitively that she's always mentally college degrees afraid of you break it that's just again i'm not saying oh yeah his see there's no one no two judges have been through more than they do not speaking of the amount of a trail he fell from a ward which is almost if not greater than that which daisies oh no no trail ward i think a man a tough one 'cause they were altogether like i'm just saying that we have like when this show finally end you're gonna have a real conversation about all the damage in each one of these kids have been through this this show is matt hurt or somebody like holy shit doesn't do rear it's just it's it's so much but at the same time it never feels she which i think is very important piece here because 'em it's easy to put people through the ringer right it's easy to dragged through the mud it's easy tear is easy tear things out if so is like no demolition easy as easy but this show does has a way of sharing them down and then also bringing the backup so even so in a way when you look at it fitness emerges from together nafta and you know because now the things that like when we should all look oh shit oh yeah of course but as as character so stronger now in in a lot of shows wouldn't do that in the same episode right 'cause that's the gives me it's like some shows will tear people haircare down and then either never bring the backup or they wait until another season or or later in the season this show tore them down completely in played on the idea of what we're doing like simmons's literary traveling across the universe to find love her life she finally get some you're happy and then you go through at least you're happy right they start off in in their mind just kind of you know having a having basically having their own lives their honeymoon to they never had a although the fact that then in there in the reality city of what it was it was five minutes it was five 'cause medicare goes back it was like this is the longest five basically the longest five forty minutes in ever you guys finally we've done were catcher internal issues key now solve the time travel issue 'cause like this for others forty fucking minutes of just torturing fitzsimmons having a therapy session in reality it was five minutes but also the fact that he didn't know these chairs and care investigators for me shit yeah yeah you could only do this after this set up they've been doing foresees because it makes sense like when you have the scene 'cause even the scenes ever knew we'd never seen before we understand like when colson calls in fits and simmons to to to recruit them right ever it makes a comment about yeah fits fitzsimmons i thought it was one person at one point right you you get that joke is that what you mean season one on the fact that fits didn't wanna be in the field he didn't wanna do fieldwork end that she's going to hold up their morale warrants a show earlier for right right it's episode national that what the will to the to the well episode to save simmons right yeah yeah that would also right but we wrote yeah that and then there's also when they went i think the episode three of something whatever the episode when putin is going the all the individual together good similar package sandwich and all the other stuff yeah you could just tell pitch was not in the field now can you imagine leopold full if it's not in the field this regime has taken and he's like james bond in the middle east right right it's just you're right this is a show that at this point if you haven't been on board with these characters and you you adman pension and we have something that's the one thing that is totally different from young just felt like you jumping young justice will be fine you cam with these cares because they rely so heavily when understanding emotional connection you'll get some things like i don't think it'll be a completely wasteful episode for you but tells you say there'll be kinda boring almost here like what is it any of this matter you won't pick up on things like what the manifestation of of all the horrible things that simmons repressed all are literally wearing literally wearing the closing remarks of the terrible thing she went through you know you wouldn't see that you wouldn't understand why leopold is so like evil like i love everything and what's crazy about that is that shows like that are supposed to hold on you're supposed to once you start going south referential you obviously stopping tracking your viewers the numbers on missive enough 'cause they're doing really well in friday's mhm reviewers but they're definitely not losing well there's nothing new there's nothing new nothing coming out on friday so it's easy to i guarantee you there plus seven number of are even better because like oh for sure right in so like i just i dunno i just i really love the show it's it's funny to me all of the moment when a few minutes when they're in the same unit in in in fitness like listen like you killed leopold's father other that's called revenge game that i don't understand what i did to deserve your you're thing come after me like what did i do like i didn't think it'd be english things over press like oh my god you're so it's just i don't know what else to say man this is this is such a great show such a great show because it gives you the character and also it here's another little subtle thing here the fact of who they who they dreamed up as their friends show up the fact that for for for fits it's it's mac in fact mac home turbo right that brings back the you know the fact that they were they were together when he would mac was the one that help veteran fits was had the brain injury in the fact that in with on on the germans case it's daisy daisy and that's crazy that's crazy one because of how simmons originally reacted well daisy being in human and having powers in her overriding thing well so the so the fact they come back until you've that even the best friends episode they had where they got drunk and they were so good to get like that it is a small subtle things that make these episodes in the show even better 'em in in working out like it just man it's it's really just super though i also thought it was funny because it's just reminding you that well i can't imagine daisy you got the measure in the past and we saw where you look in the flashback weekend have that happen all remember back at soldier not not as not as a director she'll yeah 'cause he doesn't moment that america is all a good show runner he hadn't seen the light also when he showed up in what the the meditation with the lighthouse looks like now he's like oh so i'm assuming this is the new command center we have underlying house in this overdoing it turns into this because i haven't he's never seen e a m i like that i like 'em some good i love a love what they do in in in in even the small subtle thing of everything's going fine and then right when they win a a a a knock saves them and they're going there the telephone wherever they're delivering to a senate those in their own you have a grandson what does have a max like story broke on alert prison if you really look again this show and the way i i i keep going back 'cause we've seen what happens when you can't land the plane right we've seen this like i'm not gonna bring up a certain movie that came out involving a certain set of characters beloved characters that's been going on for almost twenty fucking years that somehow they just they indeed with another flop on their hands but like we've seen it doesn't work and somebody can't get that pay off this show has earned the right to the point where the two characters that were most vulnerable in season one one did you thought they couldn't take care of themselves 'cause he could never be out in the field you gotta protect them like you gotta sign may or or ward at the time somebody to watch over them could they can't handle themselves you have a mac going i'm pretty sure they broke up by now they're fine she'll they know they they they've got they've they've they've gotten to that bar any saying that to another character who in season one also couldn't really take care of herself like she she smells in university offers nationally right so like it's just we've gotten to the point in you just shrug it off like of course they smoke is course may be able to save herself and capture a far like the the way the we've gotten to this point in how we've gotten here i i don't know if it's fully realize and appreciated by most viewers at this point yeah how could it be so pins unless you're really paying attention unless you've been here the whole time you can't it's one of those shows it's gonna be like m one per shot could twitter account call but did it to mcgregor's festive on angels episodes and how save time mhm did you one of those shows were like oh back there which is legit like i was ready for the season that'd be great i mean if you like i am briefly in the off season ended this ronson right who's serving as a first inning but what shit in well if they suck it up here on out i still embraced that in the beginning but i don't see how unless everyone got far they're gonna be just fine yeah absolutely absolutely absolutely um you

What Are We Doing, Here?

"It getting knocked down on the football field makes you tough. But getting back up makes you tougher at Goodyear, we call that determination a willingness to put in more hours more reps and more of heart to reach a bar that sky high because the Goodyear blimp doesn't show up for just anybody. So don't be just anybody the blimp worthy. Good here. More driven. This program is brought to you by ice cold Dr Pepper, the official drink of fans. This is campus conversation now, here's your host match. Jerry Wilson throw. Okay. I was waiting for the I didn't need a single break. Coal Missouri is absolutely stunned. Thanks to the GM. I j m sports network Kentucky is in a division championship game this weekend controls its own destiny in the SEC air for the college football playoff leasing leaving most of us, very confused. That may be why I've amazed L showed up for the podcast half hour early today. Hello, ivan. I've had a great conversation. Talking to myself the last half hour as usual, it's fascinated. Nobody interrupts I it's really been great stink campus conversation with one man. Taking part with amazed by the way has the story online about Alabama football. Whether it's the best team of all time in Alabama history. Great quote in there from Ivan Mays L who says there are people in assisted living who aren't as well rested. As the Alabama skill position players was very well that Ryan McGee neither well rested nor in assisted living. Hello, ryan. No, I didn't have launched an assisted living center yesterday. But I'll tell you about my mother-in-law later now, it's great. I'm doing is a fantastic weekend. And once again, we thought we knew what was going to happen. And I don't think we actually did. But it was that's how I like it looking forward to your extra point about your mother-in-law's lunch. Yep. Yep. Yep. Time did come out of the tunnel on campus conversation. Clemson and Notre Dame. They remain unbeaten Georgia wins. The first top ten match up in the SEC this season in week nine McGee mentioned it. We had a lot of upsets at least in terms of the rankings. We had eight ranked teams lose to unranked teams tied for the most in a single week in eight P poll history. So that since nineteen thirty six in the in the latest poll, Ohio State moves up three spots to number eight proving that not playing a game as much better than getting house by Purdue McGee go back to this weekend. Here who had the most impressive performance from week nine. We're talking about individuals. We're told my teams take it anywhere you want. Well, I mean, listen, I draw Georgia lose LSU. I was at that game. And it wasn't. It wasn't ten minutes after the game in the conversation. We're having curvy smart is about rebounding. And what do you do? And he pointed across the field and said, the example, we have we need is. Right there in LSU. They lost the Florida bounced back and played, you know, great against us and thought that Georgia whatever message he sent they received it because Georgia looked like Georgia. We've been waiting on that team that we saw on Saturday all season long and then individually. I think very quietly the big twelve quarterbacks or reminding everyone that maybe we shouldn't forget about them quite so quickly and the husband talk. Yeah. It's interesting. We did see, you know, obviously Kyla Murray played well and even etlinger in a loss for Texas showed some flashes Taylor, Cornelius who will Greer about a month ago, and we'll Greer certainly in that win over Baylor before the weekend began, and you mentioned you mentioned Georgia me Jake from there were folks who who are not at practice and don't aren't allowed into practice. We're saying it's time to give Justin fields many more reps and get ready. It's the by week. So it means more Justin field. Justin fields took as many snaps on Saturdays. I did and Jake from goes six for seven on third downs and had more touchdown passes on third down against Florida three of them than in the first seven games this season combined as they get the win thirty six to seventeen. Here's a here's one of those touchdowns from Jake from from back to throw good protection down to the near sideline of one. Touchdown Terry Godwin. Cutting across the field from left to near side white from hit him on the fly took it the last two yards by himself a huge touchdown from Georgia BULLDOGS that call courtesy of ESPN radio. They went at thirty six to seventeen Ivan what else stood out to you. Impressive performance from the weekend. What will certainly I would join y'all and saying how impressive Georgia was. I mean that that. I just thought Florida had the momentum going into the game. And and I was proven wrong. And you know, the great discussion of that in the first half hour before y'all got on the podcast. So I don't want to be labor. Did you talk at all about how this is? Now Jake from team, and it always has been, and maybe there's just a lot of outside noise of of people who just. I'm so tired of repeating myself on this show. Okay. And the guy was talking with agreed with him at every turn is great. Scary. Now seriously. Clemson, obviously remarkable. You know, you're impressed by how Clemson play. But also it's just been five years since Florida state did the same thing to Clemson at Clemson in this rivalry into measure, the paths of those two programs over the last five years is just that's what I kept thinking about during that first window Saturdays is how far. These two teams have gone in opposite directions. Yeah. I want to get to Florida state. I was in Tallahassee for that with with radio game day and get to that in a moment. Other impressive performances from the weekend. How about Matt Colbourn Wake Forest running back one of the first commits to Bobby Pacino's two thousand fifteen recruiting class and just before signing day. He was asked to Gracia, which means you put off your enrollment and you're not on scholarship right away. The senior had touchdown runs of seventy four fifty six at twelve yards in the win over Louisville. And he rushed for two forty three. That's the fifth most in Wake Forest history. So congrats to to Matt Colbourn for rub it in a little bit making that seat of between. Oh, a little bit warmer than it already was. And then Washington state now has three straight wins over Stanford four straight over Oregon. I mean, the playoff needs Gardner Menchu Ivan did do they not? I mean washing. State with with the way, he looks and the way this team is playing right now that would get there. But that'd be a fun story and Mike Leach is proving what we already suspected as he's a pretty good college football coach. Well, it was a terrific game from start to finish. You know? There was not really a a moment of where the the action slowed and you can say, okay. Nine hundred forty yards means no defense. But we're we're a little bit used to that with Washington state. The surprising thing was that Stanford sort of adopted the Washington state offensive philosophy. David Shaw, very. Wiley and his changing his his offensive stripes. And and Stanford responded really, well, but you know, it came down to one possession in the second half. And Stanford scored too quickly at the end of the game. They gave Washington state and Menchu a minute and a half. And they went down and kicked a field goal. It was a terrific game start to finish. And today on Twitter if you watched. Watched over the weekend. You saw a game day sign from it might have been from Pullman. But you had a sign that showed remember that George Costanza picture the timeless art of seduction, and they put Mike leeches head on their instead of Costanza 's and there's a picture from Washington state, cougar football of Mike Leach standing there with the fans who had the sign and he's with the sign itself, and and Mike Leach tweets Washington state fans are real and they're spectacular. So well done Mike Leach SE continues to to win it all in all both on and off the field. How about a disappointing performance McGee something that really made? You really is that is that how we're doing this right now. Well, I I mean, listen, I think that the demise of Washington over the last couple of weeks has been little stunning, you know, and and it's just they can't score. And you know, all. Respect Cal who's I think better than we thought they were going to be. But it's just that that part really really surprised me. And then, you know, I I'll believed that Iowa was gonna win it Penn State after I had seen island person that we've seen before. And and they just made bad decisions. I normally there. So the sound when it comes to whatever the game plan is. But there were there were certainly some okay. Is that that's the play. We're going with in this situation. It was an interesting is. So those are two teams that I thought certainly we all believe that Washington had a chance to make the playoff at the start of the year. Now, they have three losses, and I will was a team that I really believed could maybe sneak into door at least at least be the annual big ten champion who. Who gets to complain about the committee when it all it was all said and done I thought maybe they at least get to be this case Ivan back to Jake Browning in Washington. So he's benched in the third quarter against Cal and the second pass from the backup. Jay cantor goes for pick six they lose twelve ten Brown and goes eleven to twenty one for buck. Forty eight touchdown in a pick their six three out of the north and not out of the north race. But out of any national conversation, thankfully, the FBI. No longer has them as the favourite from the bag twelve to to have a shot at the college football playoff. But I haven't to to mcgee's point Browning in year four under coach Peterson that that is one of the more surprising regressions that you've seen here in college football. Well, it is. And it's I won't penitent Tirlian Jake Browning. They have no threat on the perimeter where we were used to John Rawson, Dante Pettis lasts two years, and they may Jake Browning. Look, very good. We didn't realize how good they worked till they left, but, you know, Washington Scott nothing to replace him and defenses figured that out. You know, I. I would say as long as we're talking disappointments that if anybody could explain Oregon to me in particular, or just the entire pack twelve. In general. I I'd be happy to be happy to listen. I it's it could be that everybody is is at the same level. And you know, I I actually laid Saturday night figured out. It's not that difficult for all sixteen and the in the south to finish either five and four or four and five. So that could be a lot of fun. It's it's really I mean, you could say, yeah. How do we figure this out? And maybe you answer the question. The teams are all about the same maybe outside of Washington state, and even the gap between Washington state, and the rest of the pack isn't that maybe isn't that significant and Utah is hanging out there as well. And they've been fairly dominant over the last few weeks, as well, we mentioned sticking in the Pacho, by the way, I'll I'll just close the book on Colorado here, my alma mater, blowing a thirty one to three lead in the third to lose to Oregon state which shows. You that perhaps perhaps the previous conversation of their chances of zero point zero percent chance to make the playoff. We're accurate after all. So my apologies for taking Heather finished tasks. Yeah. Yeah. What was it zero point what zero zero point zero? And which by the way were also the same chances Oregon state had of making the CASA while playoff now. Now, they're even now they're safe all the teams are the same. We right all all the teams are the same. You mentioned was well how about twenty th I was scores twenty four points without an offensive touchdown. So he had a pair safeties a pick six special teams touchdown on a fake field goal. And they lose to Penn State. You wonder how much you think Ivan that loss hurts the big ten's chances if at all kind of needing that exclamation point of the big ten championship game. If they're in a one loss conversation with. You know, perhaps in Oklahoma or something like that for that final spot? Well, it you know, we all had sort of pin? Some well, I won't speak for everybody. But certainly had Penn. Some my big ten west hopes own Iowa in terms of of the big ten championship game being something that. That would have an impact it as you put it on on the playoff now. You know, I don't know the only team with one loss and the division is northwestern, which which lost Akron. So, you know, and if north western beats Notre Dame Saturday than well know, we'll all fall back in love with the fighting Fitzgerald's. But. Yeah. It's it's I guess should we even be surprised that the big ten west is not showing up to the party. I don't know. I mean, it's just been sort of a pattern. Yeah. Northwestern leading the west of the big ten one of the more. Puzzled look at the division leaders. You got northwestern, Utah, Washington state and Virginia. I mean, these are some of the division winners are leaders. I should say that we're talking about here after week nine we predict we saw. We saw. This is it. It's all your predictions are on ESPN dot com. So we can fact check that. That's exactly how you thought McGee. We started with Kentucky, and they get that untimely down with touchdown pass against Missouri. It was preceded by a pass interference penalty that maybe should have been followed by dejection of the official. It was I mean, I make a you interfered with that receiver about as much from your couch. Is you did as the as the defensive back did but Kentucky finishes is going to finish the season with a winning record and SEC play for the first time at forty one years. Can you kind of put that in perspective? Here's they take on Georgia for a winner. Take all for the east. Well, yeah. Mean I think that that game was kind of the encapsulation of how we all feel about Kentucky. Which is we're watching the game. And I think we all were just kind of waiting on Kentucky to lose because it's Kentucky. And I apologize repeatedly to Kentucky fan saying listen. I just. There's there's that part of me built in part of me. This just has waited all season for them to trip over their own feet or dropped the ball and end zone or the bus breakdown on the way to the stadium because it's Kentucky football. That's just how it's always been. And it's not my fault. That's that's the way that the history of the program is written as you just underlying what that stat. So yeah, it's it's one of the great stories in college football this year, it is. And, you know, the simple fact of matter is is that Missouri should not have been in a position where that pass interference call matter debt, much, and it just it was that was it was not a great closing stanza from zuri, regardless of the last call so. Yeah. It's a great story. And now, you know, you I automatically wanted to say Georgia win, but three touchdowns because Kentucky football and Georgia football and whatever else. But every time I've done that this year Kentucky, his proven me wrong. We talked about a month ago here on this podcast. Brought it up and see low. Agreed when he was on that it looked like Kentucky is after they beat Florida Kentucky and Georgia that was gonna be a good game. With a lot on the line and Kentucky could give them a test. And it looks like they can give them more than that here. This this weekend Missouri, by the way, eight second half possessions. Eight three and outs against Kentucky that that won't help your cause. There you we we talked about Florida state. We talked about just Ivan you did about how they have just it's it's two ships passing in the night. Clemson and Florida state you go back five years, and they're at opposite ends of the spectrum here as Clemson beats Florida. Eight fifty nine to ten it's the largest loss. It ties for the largest loss in seminal history before the game the Tigers largest win against FSU was just by twenty one points and their largest winning Tallahassee was by eleven points that was back in nineteen Eighty-nine. And here they win this one by forty nine. Here's a head coach Willie Taggart after the game. Very disappointing loss embarrassing performance. First time since I've been here. I feel like we have some guys that Kudarat football team. And that can't be tolerated. It's one thing. You can't do you can't quit. If you quit. You don't blaze. Hope we gotta do a great job evaluating film. And making sure we got the right guy. That's out there battling with us on getting every aspect of the game. All fifty especially team bleep did play. Well at all. Let's play will really good football team. We did all the things you can't do this a team like that. That's on me. Coaches in our players and everybody here, and we got to find a way to get that. Right. I was there on Saturday with radio game day ESPN radio with Brad Edwards. Trevor mandatory or outside the stadium for that game and related story. We booked the trip before the season began up, but. The fans in the beginning in the in the start of the second quarter. I should say middle of the second quarter fans are filing out and they start coming by are set, and they start shouting expletives. I'm thinking. Oh, geez. You you really like me. No. It was about Willie Taggart in the team, and how undisciplined they are. And how I can't watch this anymore, and we're out of here and that just kept coming and then in a related story. You also saw the the the guy the professor reading a book up there, an empty seats. It was just that kind of game at MaGee is this rock bottom for for Taggart and Florida state, and what did you make of his comments? Yeah. I think that his comments were and then he also is very pointed toward the recruiter a lot of recruits in the stadium. It was a big recruiting weekend. And so a lot of what he had to say. After the game too was was pointed at those guys to which is you know, you can change this and open your eyes. What was kind of pop out quote? It was everywhere. But yet, I think it's rock bottom. And I think you could see it coming in. Clemson is. As easily among the two best teams in the country. And Florida state easily is not and so I think you kind of sit, but listen to those fans I was at the Virginia Tech game and Marty Smith and our a little platform in the end zone like right up against counter, the cheap seats, and they turned on Taggart half with the third quarter. Like, we were worried about expletives making it out on the air because they were right over our shoulder. And so it was it was it it happened. Very quickly this year and has not gotten any better. So yeah, I think we're uptick we're rock bottom. And now, they're they're playing NC state NC state who thought they were gonna play off two weekends ago. And now they can't get out of their own way. So it'll be interesting to see if anybody just trips trying to get out of the tunnel on Saturday wrong. I've some people may not like Willie Taggart's comments. But I thought they were spot on and I know some will say, well, that's that's as much on him. As it is the team because he's the head coach, and I get that. But there is a weeding out process here. There's a reason JIMBO Fisher left. Yes. It was seventy five million. But he also might have seen. What was going on in Turnley? What did you make of his comments? Why I thought they were terrific. Does not sugar coated. This is who we all right now. And we've got to get it fixed. Anytime, you know, I'm not going to say that I'm an expert. But I think if you have more penalties than first downs in a game. There might be a discipline problem on the field. Sixteen penalties versus fourteen. I now I I don't know that I've ever seen that before. So I gave Willie Taggart a lot of credit for meeting the problem. Head on Lance the boil get it out there. You know, I'm on top of this. I see it. I understand it. We're going to get it fixed. And to your point about, JIMBO. Yeah. There's always going to be transitional issues from one program to the next. But clearly Florida state was tracking downward win, JIMBO left. So I don't know if he fled. Yeah. You'd like to think he would've stuck around and gotten it fixed. But you know, maybe you did flee. I I don't know. I think he did. See I I think it was way worse there than anyone realized. And I think there was an erosion it was happening, and it was happening very quickly. And it's no secret that JIMBO in the administration, basically didn't see anything anymore and that included in same with JIMBO in the fan base. There just it was that was an ugly divorce locally than it has played nationally. And I think that you know, Taggart is suffering a little bit because of that. The Christian Wilkins had twenty two more rushing yards than Florida state did Christian Wilkins had a one yard Kerry for touchdown Florida state negative negative twenty one rushing yards. Clemson was turning this into an Oprah Winfrey. Show where you'll get a touchdown and you'll get a touchdown. Garrett Williams tight end got rushing touchdown soda Christian Wilkins as they were pouring that. And I don't think for a minute that this isn't impactful in recruiting where you show. Hey, you wanna you wanna lose go to Florida state? You wanna win titles? Come to. Clemson. If you didn't already know that look at the scoreboard. You got professor reading a book during the game here at at Florida state. We got a bunch more to get to here. We'll get to walk ons. We'll get two extra points. But I do want to ask you guys here with with all these upsets, what are you? What are you most confident in right now after nine weeks Ivan, we we saw a bunch of ranked teams go down. But if you're hanging your hat on one or two things right now in college football. What is it? Well, I think I think it's it's reasonably safe to be confident in Alabama. That's what I've been working on that story for nearly a month at posted today. Now having said that. Who was it? That tweeted this morning. Oh, she'll hurt in Tuscaloosa news. Who would know Schuessel pointed out this morning that Alabama has never won a national championship a year in which Boston. The Boston Red Sox won the World Series. So he can't even trust that anymore. Maybe I should maybe we shouldn't be confident in Alabama. But I would say I'm confident in Alabama. And I'm confident in the Michigan defense after that. I got nothing. Mcgee. What do you got? Well, I just all due respect to see. So. It's you know. Unless the Red Sox are going to team up with, you know, the steel curtain Steelers, and I don't know give me the greatest soccer team of all time, and they're all gonna play Alabama. I don't know that anyone's going to beat them. I my certainty is that Alabama and Clemson better byles. That's it. And and even when Clemson had a little bit of a hiccup, which they always do that seems they seem to have gotten over that pretty quickly. And so, yeah, my my certainty is that it's the two of them. And then we'll see what happens with everyone else. Bama, Clemson part for likely in a national championship. Not in a semi-final unless either team loses in which case, you could see one of them out of the college football playoff. But we shall see. We got the first rankings coming out on Tuesday night. And it appears Bama Clemson. And then Notre Dame LSU or LSU Notre Dame. He could flip those Michigan might be in there. But probably outside of the top four. Is there a team McGee for? Tuesday night that you're most intrigued to see where they are slotted. Whether it's in the top four or outside of it. Yeah. I'm really curious to see what they do with LSU because I think we all agree that that LSU's better than we thought how do they view the Florida loss? And how did they set up? You know, they're not they're certainly not above whether they're conscious of it or not setting up those really high single digit numbers next to the names of the games coming up. So I mean, listen the LSU Bama game is already the biggest game on planet earth. They have the ability to make you feel even a little bit bigger. So I'm really curious to see what they do with LSU because I think that's the team that we all can probably agree is way better than we thought they were going to be sort of more resilient five wins against power five opponents with winning records. And you guys know because you've done the the Mark selection thing when when they throw you. You tell whoever at the notorious who's in charge of this computer screens, you go. All right. Give me these four teams and throw them up there, and there's like these red bars, and these numbers that identify these were ranked teams, and this is what they were ranked and basically marquee wins. So LSU's going to have a lot of those red bars it more than anyone else. And I'm really curious to see how it affects the room when that when they put a number next time. If I'm I would I would not be surprised if they were number two. I mission to see we're Washington state is their their tenth AP Ivan. How much credit does Washington state get and how much of it is taken away because of the conference they play in. I know that there's hey, I get it. You know, we we don't look at conferences. We look at teams, but that stuff matters in the back of your mind. Well to me, it's it's partly the partly the Pac twelve but it's also Washington state's non conference schedule until Wyoming beat Colorado state Friday night. The Washington state non conference opponents, which were Wyoming, San Jose State. And I think Spokane hi was a third eastern Washington. Otherwise known as Spokane. Hi, okay. Right. Darn it. I was closer than I thought I had one victory against the power five team. Not an F B S. I mean, not a excuse me an F B S team not a power team had one victory against FBI team. So it. You know, that's gonna that's gonna leave a Mark. I think tomorrow night, the voters put Washington state number ten, and I want to measure what the committee does against that. Hi, oh state is sitting there at number eight how does their schedule. Look you gotta win over now a two loss Penn State team. Although that win looks better. Again, the winds change as the season goes on his Penn State beats Iowa, and they also have a non Khan win Ohio State does against TCU team that just lost Kansas. So what do they think of the buckeyes after that by week? And and what do they think of UCF who's hanging out there in the top ten? We're going to get to walk on extra points in a moment, plus talk nerdy to me with Brad Edwards and Matt Morris, but I make sure to tune into my new favorite TV show. It's fans fill presented by Dr Pepper dares every Saturday throughout the college football season during the commercials fans. Ville the only show that stars Dr Pepper puts the spotlight not the pot light. But the spotlight on fans and perfectly captures the emotional roller coaster too. That is the college football season. Critics are saying it's good fans. Mastic is anyone else thirsty? And literally the best thing since diet Dr Pepper at Dr Pepper cherry in fans. Ville Dr Pepper delivers a tour to force performance alongside legendary college football co-stars, Brian the BAAs BAAs worth Eddie, George and the mad Hatter himself less miles you experience, the pain the passion and the deliciousness of college football fan of this fall on fans Ville, presented by Dr Pepper so pullover v rights slant left. Do what you gotta do to get your local store and pick up some refreshing ice cold Dr Pepper, the official drink of fans Ville, and while you're at it don't be afraid to go to talk. Nerdy to me. Are we're gonna do some things a little bit different today. I'm Brad Edwards along with Matt Morris and typically on Monday, you know, that we go through the biggest risers and followers from the weekend's games as far as chance to make the playoff some of these are changing so little at this point that it's not worth wasting your time. So let's just start with this. Biggest game of the weekend was Florida, Georgia joy. Georgia was the winner Georgia. Because of that is the biggest riser is far as chance to make the playoff, Matt. But there's some interesting things related to Georgia winning that we wanna point out to everybody. Yeah. So Georgia moved up thirteen percentage points about forty three percent chance to make the playoffs. The the primary driver there is they now are in prime position to win the SEC east, and they're considered a better team than they were last week. According to FBI, so Georgia has all of that going for them in gaining thirteen percentage points. Some teams had to lose some percentage points and one of those teams is Alabama. And yes, it went from eighty five to eighty two percent. So not a big drop. But the reason they went down is not think as we think any less then. But because George is now the more clear-cut team through obvious team to be their opponent in the SEC championship game should Alabama get there, and George is considered a slightly better team. So moved down a little bit. But at eighty two percent, I think there are going to be okay. And the biggest faller of the week didn't play. They also have one laws and that would be seven in one Michigan. They moved down to thirty six percent chance to make the playoff the idea. There is another one loss team gained a lot of momentum. Yes. With Georgia affecting Michigan. I think the bottom line here is that as long as the scenario is still alive where Georgia could went out and knock off an undefeated Alabama in the SEC championship game. There is a really high chance that the SEC could get two teams in the off and a lot of people might want to dispute that. But let's just kind of look at it from the standpoint if that happens joy. Is almost certainly in the playoff. It's twelve and one SEC champion. The question is what happens with the twelve and one Alabama. And if you're Michigan if your house state, if you're Oklahoma, that's your weren't your worst nightmare 'cause you went out and then Alabama loses the SEC championship game. And now you're having to take on both of those SEC teams with the selection committee. I'm not saying those teams wouldn't have a chance against Alabama. But given what the committee's done in recent years, it's hard to believe Alabama wouldn't win that battle. So that takes us to something else that want to get into now with the the committee's first rankings of two thousand eighteen coming out tomorrow night, we want to refresh you a little bit on this playoff predicted that we always talk about you always hear about you. See it on TV a lot. What exactly is this playoff predictor trying to do? And where is this information coming from? Okay. So this is entirely based on what the committee's done over the first four years. This isn't something we're building in a lab based on our wins or based on our desires. It's something we're taking all the data points from the committee. We're throwing them into a model, adding some spice, and essentially that those are the numbers that are coming out. The key though is these are numbers that were projecting on selection day. In other words, when we say at Alabama's an eighty two percent chance to make the playoff. We're not saying tomorrow night. And during the first rankings an eighty two percent chance. I think that's one hundred percent we're saying on selection. They have an eighty two percent chance to make. So that's the key. That's the difference between that what the committee is doing tomorrow night. And what we're saying numbers? Okay. So let's look at tomorrow night. Now, even after you've said that which is that the playoff predictor was not designed to tell us what the is going to do at the end of October or the beginning of November. There's some things about the committee's behavior that we can read a little bit into not that we would take this to the Bank, but based on that knowledge of the committee's tendencies, Matt what do you expect to see when these first rankings come out in the top four. I think most people would agree that Alabama Clemson and Notre Dame all undefeated power five teams. They're going to be in the top foreign some some capacity here. The question really is that fourth team and a lot of people would argue that's between LSU and Michigan in the past. And a big driver of ours playoff predictor is strength of record. In other words, how deserving are you in the past like, I said the committee's tended to go. With that. It's a very good predictor over the first four years. LSU is in the top four there. So it would be LSU as the fourth team if we were to go with FBI in other words, the best team, which is what the committee says they wanna do that would be Michigan between those two. And if we were to look at all one loss teams, or at least relevant teams, we're talking Georgia. They have the best FBI Amman LSU Michigan. But I think in this case it's going to be strength of record. So I've been towards LSU being fourteen. Yes. The the committee is much as they say they want the four best typically they start to look at that resume in what they actually give us his foremost deserving. And look, I guess that's fine. As long as as long as everyone's kind of clued into exactly how they're going about it, whatever they whatever they do is what we need to latch onto not what they say. So we'll we'll stay tuned C if we're we're right about tomorrow night. But once again playoff predict or not really concerned with this week. It's concerned about the end of the seasons. Keep that in my. As you see those numbers in the weeks to come. He's not Morris. I'm Brad Edwards. Now back to Matt Schick and the rest of the conversation getting knocked down on the football field makes you tough. But getting back up makes you tougher. We call that determination a willingness to put in more hours more reps and more heart to reach a bar that's sky high because the Goodyear blimp doesn't show up for just anybody. So don't be just anybody. Blimp worthy. Good here. More driven hashtag walk on time. Now to answer your questions on Twitter before we get to the walk on here. Josh macrey are steam producer. Could you tell me what Mike Gundy thinks of maybe walk on the use of Twitter? Arrest about Twitter. Okay. He didn't cash tag. That would walk though. He didn't he didn't hash tag. Did. He did. Well, this is a hashtag. That count. Yes. So so he doesn't care about Twitter. And the last time I was sitting in his office. He just gotten a haircut and had cut his famous moll little bit. And as I'm leaving the office because hey, come back here. Take a picture of my haircut, and let's blow Twitter. He doesn't care about about Twitter. Let's you got a haircut. Oh that is great. Please intersperse that last second out these walkouts questions in tribute to the man who I think the as the man I'm forty is kind of. Okay. It's run out of gas. Yeah. He just gets. Years. Yeah. Yeah. That noise a live in infamous. Matt we have the first question which came from Twitter. It is for you from Tyler Stobie at star craft squall. This is actually my questions pay attention pay attention throw up. We're all five years old. He says, okay. So help me understand this Washington state has a scheduled with four teams in the AP poll wins over two of them are ready in plays nine power five teams. Bam on the other hand has a scheduled with two teams in the people. Just one win so far against them. And also plays nine power five teams. And yet Washington state has no shot, according to all of you. What say you met chick? That's a great question. And a great thing. Great exclamation point on the question as well. Thank you very much. There are a couple a couple of things here with with what has happened one. How the teams are ranked when the game was played is somewhat important. But you also have to understand that teams in rankings change and Stanford and Oregon are now out of the top twenty five AP's not going to have much of a bearing. I think it might in the back of their minds, but it's all about the playoff rankings. So where are these teams now, and there's a there's a good chance that Washington state has no wins over teams that are ranked in the committee's top twenty five when it comes to Alabama that might be in will likely be the same scenario for them. No wins over the committee's current top twenty five win those are released on Tuesday night. The difference though is just how a team looks and Bama has just it can't be all schedule. And it's not all strengths schedule strength of schedule can be used when you're comparing teams that are similar Alabama is more dissimilar than any team from any team in college football. They just continue. To dominate Washington state has not dominated at schedule and has a loss. So that's a part of it. And I think also with the non conference schedule like we talked about why? Oh, Ming San Jose State eastern, Washington. That's your non con now. Alabama should they get credit for scheduling Louisville. They're terrible. Probably not. But I think the committee has shown that intent does does matter at some point. You're not trying to run and hide hashtag citadel for Alabama. But they just look they look different if you are Washington state. If Notre Dame gets a loss or the big ten west division champ wins the big ten title. Then then we could have that conversation. But it's likely that if Washington state wins out they're going to be compared to a one loss big ten champ that has a better league or one loss big twelve champ. And a better schedule, by the way, one loss big twelve champ that that comes from a better conference as well in terms of strength schedule. So that that's going to. Challenging sticking with that Washington. State topic. I've been we have this question for review from drew Davis. He's at bills fan sixty four seventy three says is Mike Leach the best coach in the Pac twelve for about five years. Now, he's been taking three star guys in beating four star and five star guys on a consistent basis. I know we're all excited about Washington state and how well they're doing. But. This is this question is might be Ted. May have a tad too much crimson in it. If you wanna talk about the last five years Washington has beaten Washington state the last four but eighteen thirty five thirty one in twenty seven points. Chris Petersen's four no against Mike Leach, Chris Peterson as one of the best winning percentages in in college football at why he's fourth in fact behind. Well, Josh hypol- who has seven no at the defending national champions. But even more seriously, Lincoln, Riley and urban Meyer, and then Chris Petersen. So if you're looking at a career, the no in fact, leeches fifth in the Pac twelve and winning percentage he has not won a Pac twelve north yet. He did win a share of a big twelve division title ten years ago with at Texas Tech. And that's it. So again, they're having a great. They've had a great first two thirds of the season. But let's back. That's a tap the breaks just a little bit, so insured, Ivan. This is what you're saying. Mike Leach's last five years have been like in Pullman. Is that what you were getting? Why say it somewhere in the middle? Okay. Let's put it that way. Fair enough there enough finally McGee Preston Paris at Paris underscore Preston. Is it just me or did Ohio State start playing more like this once urban Meyer returned from his paid leave? How like what again like like this? Yeah. Well, speaking of press conferences, which is where that was recorded urban Meyer as we were recording this podcast. Breaking news his weekly press conference, and he was pressed with questions about his future. And he said I plan on coaching in the follow up. Question was will you coach next season? And he said yes, and he kept trying to earn his press conference steer the questions back to football and the questions continue to be steered back toward how's your health? Are you? Okay. Let's talk about your body language and his quote was I'm fine. I wanna how state it'd be successful in the worst way. I don't want people to worry about me. Well, bad news urban people are worried about you. And you are the news story. And I saw it firsthand in his comeback game. When he returned from his paid administrative leave. I've been told by stay fans not to call out of suspension. And after the game, I've said this podcast before no one looked relieved. They looked exhausted. And I think the fatigue of all that is setting in. I go back a lot of times too. When I was a senior at Tennessee. Johnny majors suffered a heart attack right before the start of the season. He missed basically, the first five games ee spent to miss three in spent two in the press box. Tennessee started off five and oh he returned to the sideline. They lost the next three. And the problem was I mean, it's a long story. But the really the biggest issue was he became the story. I mean, no one was talk. Talking about football. And I think that that's kind of what's happened with urban Meyer. And by the way, while he was talking about I will definitely be coaching next year. It also was announced that the Browns fired Hugh Jackson so looking at on the state of Ohio their Twitter accounts are are vibrating right now. I did like Trey wingo tweet which essentially said so they fired a Lou yesterday. Cleveland today, they fired a hue very concerned. If you're a stew. Nice. A corny tweet. And it was corny of you to read it keep the question coming though, use the hashtag walk on the extra point. Hey, love you, Mike Gundy time now to have one last shot at this thing, call they podcast. I haven't what he got. Oh, Matt I didn't want to do this too. I really did. But Colorado memory compels me. Because now I'm free at last. Free at last after thirty nine seasons in one thousand nine hundred seventy nine as a college junior. I was in the press box. And yes. At Oregon state where Stanford leads thirty one to seven in the fourth quarter. Did Stafford win that game match. Schick? No, they did not Oregon state came back tied the game kicked off and the Stanford deep man caught the ball at the one yard line and inadvertently backed into the end zone and put his knee down. Oregon state won thirty three to thirty one. And now, that's no longer the worst loss. Oh in twelve history. No longer the worst victory or the greatest victory in Oregon state history. And and I just want to thank you. You quite welcome for your last. You're you're quite welcome. I have one rebuttal for that. What was that? I don't think I was going to be was it was it you. Yeah. They might Gundy. Impressions pretty good though. Yeah. It was bad. Yeah. I'm a particular set of skills issue. Do they Q very taken with them? All right. Let me I mean hop in here quickly since I know of McGee wanna weigh in on this because he loves college football playoff expansion. But let me ask you this. I'm going to pull Jake Trotter in turn the tables here and ask you a question. Anybody? No. So we know Alabama was the highest scoring team in the country who's the second highest scoring team in the country. Anybody anybody? Anybody dead? Diversity is not Syracuse the answers Houston forty nine points a game. Who's third? Josh do you have any idea? Who's third the university of Syracuse is not interesting. Syracuse is Utah state. Yeah. Yeah. The group of five folks has four teams ranked in the top twenty of the AP poll, and I sent a message out and annoyed stance. It info group this morning. I said can you give you some context on four teams in the top twenty from the group of five well since the group of five is only vernacular that has been used since the playoffs started. It is the first time in the playoff era that four group of five teams have been in the top twenty of any AP top twenty five poll you've got six in the FBI top fifty. UCF at nine here in the Houston at seventeen Utah state at eighteen and Fresno state at twenty you flash forward to that American athletic conference championship game. You could have a twelve and UCF and at eleven in one Houston Houston team led by Derek king at quarterback. I watched that entire Houston south Florida game because college football he is a college star and a UCF team that is the fifth highest scoring team in the country look at mountain west Utah state third highest scoring team in the country just rolled up seven hundred yards against it. New Mexico quarterback Jordan love that quick temple offense. They could face Fresno state fourth best scoring defense in the country. Also top ten in terms of overall team efficiency. According to our metrics with Keyshawn Johnson. Ronnie rivers, Marcus Marianne, they had a I watched it late Saturday night had a kick six as well. So they these good teams that mountain west conference Jamshid game could have eleven and one Utah state and eleven and one Fresno state, Utah state team that nearly beat Michigan. State in the opener. Fresno state team is an interception in the end zone away from being Minnesota on the road and being unbeaten. I'm not getting on the entire expansion soapbox here. And I'm not saying these are for the best teams because they're not at one of the four best teams. But under the current system. These teams have zero shot of making the plow even UCF the nation's longest active win streak could win all of its games from this season all of its games next season won't make the plow. There's a reason that these teams don't get attention, and we'll get less and less attention. It's because of this current system, and because they don't have a shot at the play the highest ranked group of five conference champ gets a shot at a new year six ball. I'm just hoping someday these teams will have that opportunity competing for something more and a byproduct of that get more national attention, which they deserve. And I tried to supply here on this on this podcast McGee. Well, you know, me, I'm I'm I'm the gang five. No because you'd be on board there if they I'm I'm all for one hundred percent. And I watch I watch all those games. I'll even go all even go deeper. I think that one of the great stories in college football or should be down there in conference USA. You had Florida international which was almost the champions of the bottom ten just a couple of years ago. They're six and two with with Butch the Butch that people like, and then the UAB blazers a program that was non existent a couple of years ago, seven and one those could be the teams playing for that conference championship. So now, I'm all for it. But I also know that the system will always be rigged against them. And even if it's expanded they'll be forced to play like, whoever whoever makes it in. We'll end up having to go to Tuscaloosa, and they'll play the game, you know, three o'clock in the morning, and they'll make them wear flip flops. I mean, it will always be rigged against I would I would love for. I would love. No one would want. Them to participate. No, one wants UCF in this thing more than I do other than the people who work there. But I just know how this deal works. Hey, I've did you know? That Oregon state's win that was their first win since two thousand sixteen in their first road win since two thousand fourteen gay guys, we are fresh out of time here that that is it is fascinating. But I I meant to the bottom Tatum. Amidst the bottom, Tim briefly because. My favorite part of that experience is when I see a Florida international that I saw in person a couple of years ago, and they were so unbelievably bad, and now they're winning football games or UAB. I went down there when they didn't have a team. And now they're good in my favorite part of the bottom. Ten experience is watching teams that I watched every single weekend for years suddenly figure out how to win football games. And it's incredible to watch their faces to watch the body language and because of that I did enjoy watching Oregon state win. But I really enjoyed watching. Kansas win Kansas defeated TCU for the first time since nineteen ninety seven that was their first conference victory in two years and after winning three games in David Beattie's first three seasons. They've won three games this year in three games is not a lot in. That doesn't really mean. A lot to anyone outside of law. Since. But I love it. When you see it start to happen in a team figures out how to win and how not to lose. And so you tap. So has had so many heartbreaking losses this year. Now, they go to rice this weekend. And if they win that game they'll figure how to win a game. And it's not that's not a small thing. And so it's I like watching teams that were terrible when you aims. So when are you going to tell us? I started the season there. And they've already told me I can't come back. So that's a. By the way, David Beatty. Got one hundred thousand dollar bonus for beating TCU because he gets one hundred thousand dollars for each win over power five team. Wow. Who? Who put his contract together for him? Randy edsel. So that when coming from a mile away, by the way, Renzo lost to UMass but got two thousand dollars for scoring I and two thousand dollars for leading at halftime. He has a roughly twenty eight thousand dollars in bonuses this year, and they are one in seven. Exactly of our thanks to ride. Gee, I've amazed L Josh macrey and coach Gundy. Tomorrow on the show. I've amazed L crisslow and bread Edwards. Gundy, don't take us out.
