"And how does it serve the public interest for you to be talking about these things. I'm not saying it doesn't but i'm interested in hearing your perspective on that before i did a lot of these interviews. I spoke to my ethics council. About what i'm allowed to talk about it when i'm not i do not talk about any ending pieces within my jurisdiction or pending investigations within my jurisdiction but if there are cases outside the jurisdiction then i was given the green light to pine. I do think it helps break down the barriers between the public and the criminal justice system. I i i am worried that the people the country are cut out of what's going on. In the criminal justice systems they have a lack of faith and transparency. I mean grand jury system is so purposely secret that it has a lot of mistrust involves so. I think what i try to do is to open up doors and allow people to take a peek in without violating my ethical requirements. Within my own jurisdiction. So i hope that helps. I pride myself when i go on these interviews to take these complex legal subjects and make them accessible to everyone who don't may not have a lottery. Well that's good for podcasts. Like that if. I don't want to go back to the january. Six the proud boys roger stone southern florida seems to have a little bit of a cluster of of proud boys activity. You not only have roger stone whose been associated with it. The chairman of the proud boys Was based in miami. Not not the county where you are. There have been a number of people from the january six capital assault who have been charged from your area including a former police officer from northern miami. North miami and curious were reading a lot about what federal prosecutors are investigating vis-a-vis january six. But i'm curious what our local prosecutors doing there have been allegations that the proud boys and white supremacist infiltrated police. Departments are very active In law enforcement communities. What are you doing in the wake of january six. Well we at the local level enforce state laws so if it's a federal crime. Us attorney's office chan prosecute cases. If someone from down here travel to dc and committed crimes up there on january six then the local. Us attorney federal prosecutor can pursue charges but not a state. Prosecutors were limited to stay crime. So it's but are you worried that members of the proud boys are are in law enforcement departments now that you've got employees in your office who may be members of the proud. Boys are white nationalist groups. Well if we ever had an indication that there were members of hate groups in our office we obviously take action. There is no such indication but as far as law enforcement as a separate department. I do speak with the sheriff frequently. And he's aware of the fact that the whole country is on edge about this and that white supremacist. Violence is the number one terrorist threat facing our country not just domestic terrorist threat terrorist threat. So he's on notice and he does a good job as far as you know. They require psychological tests inside their department. Something that prosecutors don't. We don't have this heavy of a psychological testing behavioral health questions like law enforcement employees but we are aware of our employees in if there is a red flag. We're going to jump on a limited take you back to sex trafficking for a moment because does occur to me that your office had one of the most infamous sex trafficking cases presented to it some years back and declined to prosecute. I'm talking this is before you were the state's attorney i'm talking about the jeffrey epstein case which was right in your backyard and as i remember it they One of your predecessors refused to a bring any charges against jeffrey epstein yet the jeffrey epstein case kurt several years before i got here to this office. I'm gonna make that right. Yeah i understand. Yeah i know i was. I was a state. Senator back then and i was watching from afar. What was what was going on. What you're referring to is the state attorney at that time very krisher took the case to a grand jury and they came back with two misdemeanor counts and he was criticized for that on offense came in took it over and then they reach this deal. That was widely criticized. And i think most controversial part was. There was a a part of the deal that made secret so that even the victims were not told of what was going on. They were totally cut out of it. And the whole thing was a real cluster. As they say that's a technical legal term of you can say the whole term you can saying to cluster fuck isn't elected and so having second yes of course. The feds took a lot of heat. The us attorney kosta for having those provisions and not being tough enough on epstein. But i believe your predecessor. There was the first guy not to aggressively pursue. This case. You say went to two misdemeanors we were just talking about gates getting possibly up to life in prison when when epstein was doing far exceeds anything. We've heard alleged about matt gaetz. Well mike i am not gonna defend any of the actions of anyone involved in the epstein investigation. I think there were many mistakes mayor. Did they drop the ball. While number one the laws were different back then that a underage girl who is committing sex accent change for money was under the law a prostitute committing crimes today. Rightfully that young woman is a victim that child is a victim and the laws have been changed thankfully because that's the way it should be and that's why by the way you see the matt gaetz case the seventeen year old girl. She is not a prostitute law. She is a victim so back then the laws were different..

"Up to lies. How bad the facts are. But we don't know yet. So i say it's up to life and i do think the greatest threat to mac aids may not even come in. The investigation of ham is certainly not investigation of the alleged extortion plot. That's a whole 'nother matter. But i think it's in the investigation of joel greenberg the former hack electric seminal county who has every incentive to flip on matt gates gates biggest fish and it is a lifeline for greenberg that gazes brought into this. Because now you can tell and knows all ex- explain the connection between the investigation into joel greenberg and the and the gates investigation. Because i think a lot of people don't quite understand that joel greenberg former tasked liker for seminole county and gates are good friends and their social friends from big being political buddies and they according to the reports that came out that they were using the. Site's like uh seeking arrangements. Dot com and sugar. Daddy dot com. This is being in news report so i don't confirmation but that they were using that to meet women and then paying for them in exchange for sexual acts now. One of the girls early was seventeen. Now i think that is obviously the worst thing permits because that takes you into the child sex trafficking laws if they were eighteen or over then to have sex trafficking you have to have force fraud or coercion. But if you're under eighteen as victim you don't need force fraud or coercion. The laws are much broader much more protective and we now know that the girl in question in the matt gaetz investigation is under eighteen. Because it's the same girl who is at the center of the joel greenberg charges so greenberg charged with having sex with the same girl that allegedly gates did yes. And that's the key point here. How do we know that. How do we know. It's the same borough the reports that have out. We greenberg is being charged with With child sex trafficking or a seventeen year old girl and the reports are that it is the same seventeen year old girl issue with matt. Gaetz that the two of them both engaged in this comic allegedly and that they use apple pay in cash apps to compensate this girl. And all you have to show for child sex trafficking is that you enticed you recruited you transported. You harboured any of those things a minor for sex in exchange for something of value. So you don't even have to have sex with her to engage in child sex trafficking if you're the one who enticed the girl to have sex joe grimberg if you transporter if you were the one at the airport and drove her to. The hotel left her there joel greenberg. You could be charged with child sex trafficking so amac gaetz says. Hey here. my defense is number one. I never had sex with anyone under eighteen number two. Let's see i'd paid for sex. Well you don't have to pay for sex or have sex with someone under eighteen to charged and convicted with child sex so as a prosecutor who has has probably investigated similar crimes although not this one in particular before. Tell us what you think so. Far what stage of the investigation are they in how far based on you've seen the evidence based on what's coming out publicly. How far along are they in the investigation. How soon does matt gaetz need to think about Or not he's going to be standing in front of a judge facing a a pretrial hearing. I think this investigation is coming to a close. I think you will see a charging decision made imminently because the separate allegation extortion is blown up. Mackie's has been identified publicly as subject of not a target of the investigation. And these are the kind of things that sort of happened when investigation reads reaches its conclusion fact that lord up in hired two prominent criminal defense lawyers shows you that. He's expecting something to come down. So i think this is going to happen sooner than later. Is roger stone in palm beach county these this. He apparently lives in broward. County in broward county south asia because he was apparently A friend of both gates and greenberg. There's been pictures on social media of the three of them together and he's also been you know very much On the radar screen of the folks investigating The attack on the capital on january. Six do you have any insight into where the the feds are headed on that one. I'm not sure but. I think that the feds could if they wanted to pursue federal charges against roger stone because even though he was pardoned for his convictions that he was remembered convicted for obstruction of congress threatening a witness he was not pardoned four other things that could have been charged with obstruction of justice as a separate crime or perjury. That's a separate crime. Obstruction of congress is different than obstruction of justice separate separate charge and running a witnesses different than perjury separate charges. And if you're wondering how could he be charged at the federal level when he was pardoned by the president is because the pardon was not very brought pardon was for crimes he was convicted of. And if you then ask well. Why wasn't the pardon much more broad. I think the answer is that screwed up and it wouldn't be the first time you saw a screw up in the trump administration if only their competence had matched their nefarious nece. We've been a lot more trouble. Hey dave let me ask you a question about your role as a as a local. Da because I you know for years covered the justice department so we covered federal prosecutors who tend to be very circumspect about open investigations whether it's their own or others and you on this podcast. I think elsewhere you know predicted that president trump is gonna be Indicted that Matt gaetz indictment is imminent that The feds could pursue charges against roger stone. What what are your obligations in terms of opining on on these kinds of investigations..

"Still don't know. Did you the active investigations into governor. Disentis i do not aware of any but i just asking we do not. We didn't okay. I want to go back to the Public steel quickly. If i could isn't isn't one of the arguments it's being made about it. That while palm beach may benefit from this decision because there are plenty of public says you know. In the in the county there are large number of other counties scattered throughout The state of florida which are poorer or have You know a greater percentage of the population that are African american or latino and there aren't a lot of publix stores there so the the decision that dissent has made really benefits wealthy white residents of florida and really disadvantages is that is that. Is that the story behind the publix decision or is it a. Is it something else. No i think that is a big part of the story. But remember when the federal government. I distributed these vaccines. They gave the states the unlimited authority the full discretion pretty much in that allowed to santa's to choose his own rules and the state of florida is one of the few states that did not have a comprehensive vaccine distribution plant. That's the way to santa's wanted it. That allowed him to pick and choose which communities got it to choose publix if he wanted to and one of the big controversies. Is that wealthier. Enclaves like in manatee county a wealthy enclave that got the vaccine before anyone else and were given priority. Where if you didn't live in those zip codes. You could not get the vaccine. There's another enclave in largo where they got the vaccine or others and so people want to know. Is that illegal. The answer is no because the governor set up the rules and it is not breaking the rules. He set up. It's so yeah when you have people flying in smaller the world to get vaccines in florida. That wasn't against the rules. Either because the governor did not set up residency requirement to obtain the vaccines. It was just. You had to be over sixty five. Let me ask you about One of your more prominent constituents in palm beach county the former president of the united states who seems to Have a lot of legal issues around. The country is under criminal. Investigation in york over his finances fulton county. Da appears to be investigating the events after the election. Do you have a role to play when people want to serve subpoenas on the former president or compel his testimony in some way in other jurisdictions. Mike were an uncharted territory. Here this is never happened. We don't have peace law. On how to prosecute former presidents. I i do think that manhattan d my counterpart up there. Cyrus vance junior is going to. I'll charges or indict the pres- corn president At some point this year before advanced leaves office. He's isn't working on that investigation for about three years. And you don't get to worry is now without having something to work off. He's got something. And i think that decision will happen before he leaves office so i anticipate a charging decision this year and most likely will be. I think to chart now. When that happens i can anticipate that. Florida's governor may try to stop the extradition of former president. Back to new york. Now he doesn't have really any grounds to do so. It's really a ministerial duty to rubber-stamp the extradition but he may try to score some political points with his base by trying to stop it. I mean after all. I thought that congress's role in certifying the vote was ministerial on january. Six and we saw what happened then. So so let's say he does. What happens then. Where does this go to court if it goes to court again. This is uncharted territory. But i can envision that state of newark would have to file a federal action in florida to require the president to be extradited. I don't think it will be hard to do. So because the only substantive grounds that i know of to prevent extradition of one of our residents is that it's the wrong guy is a case of mistaken identity which of course does not apply here so to santa's may try to win political points by trying to block the extra addition. But i don't believe you can't and a court ruling would require the former president go back to new york. Another complicating factor is that. I don't believe the secret service will want any other law enforcement agency to put their hands on the former president. So we'll see what happens. But i think it will happen most likely later this year and any attempt to block extradition out will not work that. It's not just the cyrus vance and new york there. As i mentioned the fulton county prosecutor who's investigating on the election fraud and then there although civil suits all over the country right but i think the greatest existential threat to the former president comes at manhattan i. I'm not sure if atlanta's gonna be able to do anything at least not before your doesn't new york is farther along and i think that's really were or president. Trump has to work well. I'm speaking of people who might have something to worry about these days. there's congressman matt gates from the panhandle who seems to be in some legal jeopardy now. You've been outspoken. I think you were on. Tv the other day saying that gates could face life in prison or these charges now. We should preface this before we get into you. Don't know what the fbi and justice department has in terms of evidence against matt gaetz correct. I know as much as you do. My road and when i say up to life is up to life. He is facing if he's charged with child sex trafficking a mandatory minimum of ten years in prison but it could go up to life depending on. What the evidence is and the aggravating factors right. I mean what. What would what would bump this up to. You know up to life in prison. What charge would get you. There would get in there. There's a conspiracy involved a that bump it up. The other charges could come into play the conspiracy identity theft because number. Joel greenberg is being charged with identity. Theft there's wire fraud there's campaign finance violations on top of all that also i believe at the federal level. There is a special enhancer for violation of public. Trust if you are an elected official in your busted so there are a number of factors plus when it comes to child sex trafficking depending on what the details are could get.

The Fight Over The Future Of Natural Gas
"Keeps your apartment warm Okay i know i know. Our electricity is some mix of renewables. But i'm pretty sure that our heat is gas right and so many people are in exactly the same situation about half of the homes and businesses in the country a burn gas for heat in the winter especially in the cold part of the country. Right plus a lot of people have gas water heaters. This is basically your own little fossil fuel power. Plant right there in your basement and it really adds up between heating homes and businesses burning fossil fuels on site accounts for more than ten percent of the whole country greenhouse emissions. Wow okay all right. And i'm glad we're talking about this because i feel like i remember. Natural gas has been pitched as this cleaner fuel cities. You know buying buses running on compressed natural gas and that's supposed to be a good thing question mark while it is cleaner. It was cleaner than the diesel that those buses were burning. And it's a lot cleaner than coal but you know when you're putting up buildings and installing equipment. That's going to be in place for twenty thirty fifty years. Maybe cleaner isn't good enough anymore. I'm killed really bad about this. Fossil fuel plant. I've got my house now again. Guilt about this is not the point. The point is there is an alternative Another path at least for new buildings and also for when a lot of other buildings you need their furnaces replaced. Okay okay and i talked to one of the people who's pushing this alternative ali hundred mahia cunningham with the natural resources defense council. We're going to have to tackle emissions from pretty much everywhere. The benefit of buildings is that we have the technology. Okay dan what technology we talking about. It's got a name electrification. I like the name. But i i do feel like with electricity. I mean there are greenhouse gas emissions from generating electricity to right right absolutely for now but the thing is if your goal is zero greenhouse emissions burning gas will never get you there but electricity could if it's coming from places like solar and wind and hydro which increasingly it is so the environmentalists are saying if you're putting up a new building making decisions for decades to come. Don't lock yourself into burn guests. Give yourself the chance to be zero. Carbon got it. Okay but what does that. Look like dan. Well let's go to our next story like sitting here. We have tyler holland. Who works with construction company called wiedeman corporation and he is going to give us a little audio tour to explain this whole electrification idea like sixth all electric apartment building that. We've done john reid from our member station k. u. e. r. actually recorded this was masked and socially distanced. Mike was out on the end of a long pole. Now that la this buildings six stories high still under construction not many people around so this is an affordable housing project now in most buildings in salt lake city and really lots of places in the us where it gets cold there would be a pipe underground going into this building. Delivering gas to heating furnaces. But here in this building. There's no gas hookup. Its all electric. Every apartment has an electric heat pump on the wall which takes care of heating and cooling. Okay dan i feel like i should know this. But what what's a heat pump The heat pumps are basically the key to electrification They work pretty. Much like refrigerators. They use compression and expansion of a gas to move heat from outside to inside or the other way around in this case the heat pumps are capturing heat from the air outside and moving it inside the apartment for heating and in summertime. they do the opposite. They'll move heat from the inside to the outside are also heat. Pump water heaters. I will tell you from personal experience. They have gotten so much more efficient and they just work better than they used to. Are they really expensive. Though for big buildings the machines themselves can be more expensive than say a gas furnace or a standard of water heater. Which is why tyler said. They only did their first all electric building. Because there was this environmentally-minded developer give group. That insisted on it. Tyler's company thought this is terrible. It's going to cost a lot extra. But once they started working on it they say turned out to be cheaper. You eliminate gas taps you eliminate running all those gas lines through your building so by not putting all that gas infrastructure in there. You're kind of saving money. Right and now tyler company is totally sold on this. They're sharing their blueprints and budgets with other builders just to show them that it makes sense for business for the climate also just for cleaner air. We everybody to do it. I mean it's it's everybody's air that we're all breathing makes my mountain bike ride that much easier and the basic idea is down the road. This building will have zero greenhouse emissions once. It's getting that electricity from the sun or the wind or from falling water Okay got it. So will we see more building like this around the country. A lot of cities with big climate goals are trying to promote all electric buildings like this. They're really focused. On new construction not so much. Retrofitting existing buildings. Nobody's forcing people a tariff. Their gas furnaces at this point and salt lake city is not considering any formal ban on new gas hookups. Vicki bennett who's director of sustainability. There says they'd like to try persuasion. Incentives maybe expediting building permits at our next step is exploring what sort of incentives would be would make a difference you know what would be enough to get them to pay more attention to going to all electric buildings but there are cities dozens of them mostly in california that have adopted rules that say in one way or another new buildings cannot get connected to gas pipelines anymore So that's what that person from. The american gas association was talking about like at the top of the show. The campaign against gas exactly and that movement reached the third place. We're going to go visit flagstaff. Arizona whom where nicole anti-monopoly is director of sustainability. that was one of our strategies. Could we say no new natural gas in new construction. And this is where they run into the backlash. Yeah i imagine. The gas industry wasn't happy about this. Not really we have seen some internal documents from a meeting of the executive committee of the american gas association last year An environmental watchdog group that climate investigation center obtained these documents through a public records request. And they showed that by late. Two thousand nineteen a group of big gas utilities had already launched a campaign in favor of what they call consumer choice. One of them is southwest gas. The biggest gas provider in arizona and in february of two thousand twenty. The speaker of the arizona state house introduced a bill that makes it illegal for cities in the state to limit gas hookups. Republicans generally supported it and in arizona. The law just sailed through a passed both houses and signed into law within a month. So what does that do to to the city of flagstaff. Plans nicole antenna says it pretty much left them looking for a plan. B it definitely put a huge hurdle in our plans for promoting electrification and fuel switching Instead of requiring developers to go all electric they have to persuade them to the approach. Utah's taking and since then similar bills have passed and three other states and they're being considered in a dozen more cleaning. Florida georgia whole bunch of states. Well so this is my question about the like you know. Consumers can choose. I mean our individual consumers actually choosing here dan or is the developer kind of choosing for the consumer. It is an interesting conflict. You have these states stepping in and they're saying on behalf of consumers although it's also on behalf of the gas suppliers right no you. Cities cannot interfere with the consumer's right to burn gas or the developers right to build a gas burning building and the cities are saying just like we have building codes for public safety. We want to enact rules that will help end climate change and that means no new construction that uses fossil fuels. So they're saying the community is making this choice and we should have the right to choose right. I mean that's what it kind of felt like we were talking about kansas way back at the beginning of the episode. Felt like the folks in lawrence have decided on this goal which is one hundred percent renewable which means down the road. Gas wouldn't be an option like that's the choice. Yeah i asked. Jasmine more. The city of lawrence's director of sustainability. How this would affect your city's plans if it passed. And she said it's kind of hard to tell. But the bill is written. Very broadly it prohibits any municipal ordinance that quote discriminates against restricts limits or impairs. Close the use of a utility. So she's worried that it might even ban city programs that are aimed at promoting energy efficiency since that would reduce gas use. Wow that's pretty intense. Then she also said this no matter what. We'll figure out a way to continue to make progress. She sounds pretty determined. I'll say that yes. She does okay. Dan charles as always we appreciate you. Thanks for bringing this to the show. Thank you

Virus surge breaking infection records across the US
"Across the us. Lear seeing a record-breaking surge in kobe cases on thursday the us reported more than one hundred and fifty thousand new cases just a day alone. The scary thing about it is that if you look on a curve. It's just going straight up but we don't know where this curve ends. We don't know where the peak is. This could be just the very beginning of the curve. That's mine one a science reporter for the post. He's been looking into why there's been such a huge spike. In kobe cases this part of fall surge. A lot of experts were warning about getting colder. People are moving indoors but also i think there's just this pandemic fatigue people are tired of taking precautions that plays a huge role. You've got a lot more activity going on. You know back in spring. Even the summer a lot was still shut down. People were not going out there. Being more careful you've got a lot of economic activity resuming and that's gonna lead to you know more spread. I also wonder if there's personally like a fear factor here. I feel like if you think back to how he felt in april and may just felt like there was this sense of being consumed by fear of getting sick and hearing all the horror stories and that fear is there. I think that because so many of us are living our lives. It's easy to forget like well. You know it's like. I'm gonna take precautions to the best of my ability. But i'm still carrying on with my life and i wonder if that has started to edge out a little bit of the precautions. That people were taking previously totally. I think that's like a very big factor in this. It's just we're you know there's this whole all this talk of like we're learning to live with it. That like really downside of that is we really are learning to live with it in that. Just you know a thousand people dying. Every day is like a matter of fact if he told someone that you know in january like you know. In a few months we're going to have people just dying in droves day and people aren't gonna care would be unthinkable back then. So where are we seeing the most intense hot spots and outbreaks right now there are hot spots are concentrations especially in the midwest and the west. But it's everywhere this time you know. In spring it was new york and california in summer you talked about the sun bell. Texas florida georgia. But this time. It's just everywhere. The hardest hit spots though are a lot of these places. That didn't have it before. North dakota wisconsin montana. These are the last frontiers untouched by the virus. And once it's reached there it seems like is just taking off and for the places in the country that are experiencing these outbreaks for the first time. Are there particular challenges for them. That's different from something like new york where they have now had multiple experiences with going through this rise in cases. There's the problem of not having experience a lot of hospitals In new york california they have lot of that built inexperience in their. Icu's there's also this factor. That's hard to talk about but it's just politics a lot of these harder hit states right now. They're republican conservative. These are a lot of the states for the people. Listen to trump. When he said you know you could wear a mask or not wear mass. We can learn to live with this just as bad as the flu. These are kind of the key audiences for that. And so when it's hitting these states and people are not reacting to it like you might have seen in some of the democratic states that's a really potent factor as well so obviously we're seeing this very precipitous rise and the infection rates. But what are we seeing in the death rates and the number of people who are dying. The greatest thing that's happened in our fight against the virus is we've driven down the death rate and it's just the wild success that is attributed to we know more about the virus like you re think back to those times in new york. You had doctors kind of discovering Pruning people's bodies like putting them on their stomachs turning them. You have icu nurses who just know you know went to put someone on ventilator better and when not to when you do everything you can to avoid that because of the death rate that comes with that so a of this. It's just hard one experience. And that's the thing that's really worrisome. This time around. All those icu. Staff that is really specialized expertise. You can have nurses come in from other departments and try to help out but as those hospitals get stretched thinner and thinner in the icu expertise. Kind of ood evaporates death rate. There's a very good chance of it rising. And it's not some like set thing that's in stone. Once you achieve this death rate will never go up again. It changes and fluctuates. Even between states can change and fluctuate That's so interesting. I hadn't thought about that before. Because i feel like at the beginning of the pandemic so much of our conversation was are they're going to be. Nf doctors healthcare workers. What happens if some of them get sick. How is staff gonna be stretched thin just from the perspective of human bodies to throw at this problem. But now what you're seeing. Is that this improved. Death rate is only because so many of those healthcare workers actually had that experience from the last seven or eight months and that in of itself is not something that we can rely on as the problem gets larger. Yes what's going to happen this time around. Why people are so worried about this. Wave is very soon. You're gonna see all the problems that we had before starting to pile up but new ones too on top of that. So we all this time. But we never really fixed are shortages of p for all the trump administration's talk of how they were gonna take charge the really just refuse to use the powers. They had in the last few months to push companies and coordinate our country's manufacturing distribution of ppe and same thing on testing. I mean there's been a really great increase of testing. We've increased by a lot but the demand for testing is awesome increased dramatically. So there are those past problems. But you're also gonna have a shortage of expertise because last time if you remember a beacon call in third doctors and nurses that came rushing to help with the virus everywhere across the country. You can't you can't send people certain place. Everywhere is running out of doctors and nurses in icu expertise. That's something that is really concerning this time around. So if this is what we're already starting to see and we're here the middle of november. Obviously it's getting colder. More people are going to be indoors at the rest of the winter. And then there's also thanksgiving and christmas and these times of year where it feels really really difficult to just say. I'm not going to interact with anybody. How do we expect this to continue to unfold in the next couple of months. Yeah this part. I feel bad i feel like every time you invite me on the show like really tessa mystic. But there's so many things that are kind of pointing this the wrong way so you do have like the holidays coming up if you look at what happened in canadian thanksgiving which is earlier than ours. It trove infections way up there. There's a lot of worry that the same thing is going to happen with a double whammy of thanksgiving christmas. You have colder weather which makes helps the virus survive better with less humidity the pandemic fatigue which is going to increase. But there's this added thing now where there's also this political coal polarization. That is very dangerous so if you think about it. We have ten weeks until the biden inauguration during those ten weeks people are saying well. You know we're going to reset. The effort will get our ducks in a row. And we'll do it right this time. In those ten weeks you could have the infection rate. Doubling

"Walk them all. We'll be back here on a wednesday afternoon which talk to coach in florida head coach. Paul good to talk to you. Thank you thank. Trask and the gators are going to have this weekend. Considering georgia's defense pretty much decimated by injuries. And also you think the gators are gonna bite up on the ron and make. Yeah i think. I think uh i think it will. Accounts being out is a real factor. That's one you know probably arguable. He's georgia's best defensive player but you laid it out pretty well. I think they'll have a lot of success. Then you think they're going to pretty much load up on the run and make sets and had beat them whatever his name. Well yeah you know what would if you just all i would recommend is study the second half of the alabama game we shall do praying that That tips and tony get into the end zone. A bunch of times and gators get back where we belong folks. Great to hear from you. Thank you. Mike is in my is in ohio. And hey mike Welcome to the show to. Hey paul how you doing doing. Okay appreciate you call. That's good first time caller Talk about kentucky running game. It seems that especially against Auburn in the first game in georgia the last game. When they ended up getting a feel go they started inside to twelve against georgia. The fifteen and got to the red zone on twelve plays basically all running the ball and then they start passing it. It's like you know. Carry wilson's decent enough. But if you got a good running game why do you go away from it and have to try to make the passing game work. I don't know it's it's a fair question. And and i it's interesting. How many people. We're hearing from from kentucky miami bigger question. Where does this program go from here because this season looks like like a mess. No they came into the season talking about having. Probably the best line in the sec. Possibly one of if not the best. Great running game and by chris rodriquez the first five games. He had fifty five carries. Averaging five point five yards. And it's only eleven cagey games. Might wanna give it to him. About twenty five yeah. I think you're probably right about that. Hey appreciate the call. Kenny is also in ohio toledo lido. Hey kenny hey how you doing paul. Hey i just wanted to Go back to something you were talking about earlier when you're talking about how the bucket i screwed up when they let joe burrow and i'm just wondering does anybody ever remember a guy named dwayne haskins. Yeah i was trying to remember Other than wasn't there somebody other than haskins there as well. Yeah take martell. I believe i can't remember transfer right. There may have been. He got there as where it was all. Yeah i think he got in jt. Yeah i mean he he was. I mean i've talked to urban meyer about this. And everyone's heard this story a million times. But he got hurt and that put him behind and he just never could make up ground. But i mean they knew he was a good quarterback but there was nowhere to go absolutely he was but yeah there was nowhere to go and he had a guy like Haskins in front of who was fantastic. I think the more pertinent question revolves around jake fromm. Who was a very good quarterback and no one's denying that. But you know kirby. Kirby knew the situation down there. He made the choice. I remember talking to a former coach and former head coach in the sec. Is this the right choice. He said it is the right choice. Now jake from the dicey part of the equation here because he he didn't get much out of that and i think jenkin been there this year georgia will. I mean obviously georgia would have been a lot better. Hey thanks for the call. Appreciate it shock in new york. You're on the air. Hey check doing. We're doing good. I wanna talk about the lsu tigers. Right okay. Last year the lsu tigers with very good..

"To podcast. We welcome you back in. It's always great to have you on the program a couple more hours ago. We will continue with your phone calls at eight five five two four two seven two eight five and the let's get back to the calls and barry is up next north carolina. Hello berry hey paul how are you doing. I'm doing great. Thank you for calling in a long time. Listener time caller You may have addressed this somewhere down the line. But i was just curious. What georgia and our house state was looking at when they let fields in berle's a transfer out it looks like they were better options than what they had the time. Good point yeah. I mean we. We don't make a big deal between. I think the difference was. They had pie quality. Quarterbacks up there and georgia doesn't now but but everyone makes mistakes There's there's no getting around him. Okay okay ohio. And in the case of ohio state could they of used joe burrow last year against clemson. Yeah i think they would probably win the national championship. Okay and then two younger brother who transferred to maryland Is he a pro style quarterback where he make it to the next level or is he's just finished. He's he's he's. He's played fairly well this year. I don't think. I don't mean to be disrespectful to him. But there was nobody in alabama that was overly choked up about him leaving they already had the number of incoming quarterback in the country braschi and they have mag jones who literally out of nowhere a heisman favorite. So they were they were able to. There was nothing they can do about that. Okay well thank you good day. Thank you and appreciate the call. Let's continue garrett is in auburn and you're on the air. Hello garrett mr paul. I had a question. They get your opinion on what you thought about The rest of auburn Auburn university football season you think. Lsu is just that bad you think. Auburn has turned the corner and started playing to higher quality football. I was pretty impressed with auburn. Lsu is not a good team but they're still an impressive win. I was particularly interested in impressed with two things knicks. And then how well the auburn defense played. So i think auburn has has life. Now you know we can all we no longer should obsess over the games. They shouldn't have won. They had been inconsistent at times erratic but they put a few good games together. And i thought saturday was was fantastic. I i definitely thought that auburn defense has come together as a unit game. And maybe we'll see that for the rest of the season. If you see that then i think that portends well the problem for auburn the schedule is extremely difficult. mike is in alabama. My go right ahead. How you doing this. I got a question. How do you you feel about the alabama decent reason why they did because any we make it to the playoffs and we'd go across the scene like state them type of quarterback like how you think it's a hard question to answer because sir if you look at what we saw ole miss and in other games it would make you feel pretty awkward now. They shut down tennessee. Which does not have a good quarterback. They obviously put a clamp on mississippi state. But that's not really saying anything. So i would. I would be concerned all the concerned with to those quarterbacks pick on your stick in there and we got there. I feel like. We don't even have a veteran. Linebacker moses is. You're not playing like to meet. We don't have that reuben foster or that Mclain you know. There's my questions for today. You good one in my. Thank you for calling appreciate it very very much. Rusty is up next and tennessee. Hey rusty rusty there. I don't hear rusty so let me try. Jeff who is in kentucky l. jeff. Go right ahead paul. How's it going so to me. It seems like eddie grant kentucky's offense coordinator has screen pass and tunnel past our way to a two and four six and a potential losing season. Nothing against terry wilson or joey gatewood. They're put in that situation. But what do you think about your teacher at kentucky. Always liked eddie. I thought he was a really good recruiter. In times He is he is I knew i knew emf Back in the day. He was running backs coach at auburn. But he had to develop the quarterbacks and last year he called lightning in a bottle and this year. I really wanted to see more from gatewood because I i want to start firing offensive coordinators here after a couple of bad games. But you know this has been a hard offense to watch. We'll tell you that appreciate it. Thank you very much. A lot of concern about kentucky right now. Mitchell concerned about everything right now. Mitchell is georgia. Hey mitchell she can fan events do these last game when he played new skin in jacksonville and he's been watching it over the years but just don't see my coaches can get in her head it. We've got to pull it down and we got to throw the ball from time to time and it's is it first brings me because the quality football people play nowadays most of it a lot of you got have a ruining game but most of a lot of it. He's he's wonderful. Well yeah you're right mean. It's pretty obvious if you look at the top teams in the country. What they do you know. There's nothing wrong with running. The ball and georgia has good running backs. But you know they got he got closed and you know and and we've been closely been here since carves got there but we we just can't seem closer to your calls the same now. We want to just not as georgia's mentality run runner when he when you when you have a defense that has played as well as georgia's the last couple of years now with some injuries to hold your breath this weekend. It's it's understandable or was that i'm a little more should be appreciate it. Thank you yeah. I don't mean you shoot obsess over it. I just think if you're concerned the the opposition is really good this week. Alex is in california. And you're on the air. Hello alex how you doing. Thanks for taking my call. Thank you question You just answered it for me. You know i'm a big time. Georgia dog Phantom out here in california and I wasn't really too impressed with the performance against bama question to you is You know since that Championship game couple of years ago where we lost by that You know pass and You know had post the next year and the next year. We're from that we were going to compete My question to you is. Are we ever going to eat alabama. Yeah i don't know if that's a good question. I would be more concerned about florida this week. Alex the alabama games important. Everyone understands the connections on the rivalry. But george asked to be florida every year. That's what that's what success is going to be measured by the second level of success with the third navy is alabama. Hey thanks for the call. We are heading to a well. Actually let me get one more call here because there's a lot of negative georgia fans and whenever you hear negativity from georgia fans george you get the loudest the glory god no. We're not worried. Dan mullen can't be ups. I mean there's no way thing. Beat us paul. If we always have a hangover against kentucky you know and we're going to get this came ship.

All three have just been called for the former vice president. So now Joe Biden's electoral count lead is 207 again. 270 is needed to win 207 for Joe Biden 119 for president Trump, So apparently it looks like Idaho has just gone for President Donald Trump. Again. No one is close to that 270 point necessary point to become the next president. But we're still waiting for Texas, Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Michigan, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Iowa, New Mexico and Arizona. All too close to call.

We're hey michael. Hey thanks for having me how you doing. I'm doing well thank you very much. Well i i i really had worn. I guess main question as i was kinda looking at at stuff for Arkansas game against tennessee. Saturday and i realized that that sand pits Former offensive coordinator still at tennessee. I was wondering. Is there any stock. And he put any water in pitman avenue relationship. A working relationship with with tennessee's authentic corner. I mean he knows that offense inside out being the old line coach for him for so many years. I was wondering any sort of advantage. That arkansas can take into hosting tennessee. It could the problem is if you've watched tennessee's offense this year and can get any ideas on how to stop them. It shouldn't be very difficult considering how inept they have been so but yeah. I understand where you're coming from. I think when you work with someone you know their tendencies and the reason why saving has been so successful against his assistants. No he's just got better players. But i think it's a minor thing. I don't think it's a big deal. All right great thank you. Thank you very much Do appreciate the call and let's go to. Ac of next acu good afternoon. Welcome to the show. Hey oh thank you very much for taking my call. I got several a couple of questions here. I wanna ask you attend. That's rule at the sec. Game each and burst. Sec says the attendance features of basic game. But most of it has to do with well not not all of it but I think it's an individual decision. But i think there's a there's an unwritten rule to keep everything of twenty to twenty five percent because attendance ag- aims is really a a state local county and state issue. But i don't think the sec wants florida for example data eighty-five thousand wall georgia at its games can only have whatever i i'll have to double check but i think it i think it's a conference wide guideline alabama can't put more than twenty thousand in. That stadium is still be social distance. But you're.

Paul always good to be with. Thank you Just wanted to would in a few cents worth Doors my gators whom. I love dearly but Just give you know low confidence because it just seemed like A whole confluence. Things happen you now is like a like a perfect storm. Type thing you know but the i threes frame that hit about On that president back all the press and Before he went in he was like about three feet away and then he really did. It'd be frozen like that. He really seeming launch. Himself really did come within alma to you know and i. I just think that that was A flag rare and the whole thing is fused. You know agree. I i don't i don't think in question where all this came from. And the penalty should have been thrown. We wouldn't have had the malay. I still think spurrier was right. These are bad looks on universities and our conference and and i think we're now to the point where everybody is taking some of the blame and i'm not trying to be pollyanna here. That's not how old but you have to hope that other players will see this and other coaches and say don't ever do that and a lot of those missouri. Boys were pretty gloomy over. They were absolutely and that's why three of their their players were suspended. Hey thank you very much good to have you on that you wanna give us a ring a good time to do it. We have opened calls finally after a tough stretch at eight five five two four two seven two eight five phones the rest of the way. It's been a busy one with guests. And how gerry up next gary. How you doing paul how you doing. We're doing great ran. That's that's great man. I'm first time caller man. I watched so like crazy. Love the inspiration that you do more than just the sports so i really appreciate what you do man and you know just how you really know how to answer. People and i have a question for you. I was thinking about The days are part of To and Jim burrow no tool. It went down and you know job. joe burrow kind of stepped up and took. That took that spot. Well it looks like is deja-vu again for launch and What's his name alabama. Mack jones is trying to say well make jones. My question is do you think says trevor laws is going to miss two possible games. That are mack jones late. become the front runner now. I think it's i think it would right now. Be mag joan justin fields. But i do believe that trevor could be hurt by this depends on when he comes back. I suspect it will be next week. But what what he loses a marquee game of a standalone. Primetime game that everyone will be watching. And that's how you have to measure heisman candidate. In my estimation you don't measure them on how they play against wake forest. You measure them on the big games. Yeah they put up on the board This past weekend. It was showing jones and How jim joe burrow. I mean how the numbers are so compatible. and now this guy's Night jones was not even close to touch and His record but now when they put them up on the board they'll so close. It's like gary. Let me let me me. Just offer this as somebody who's voted in the heisman for many many years. Don't get too caught up in october. I realized this season lasts longer than usual. It's down the stretch is leonard. Fournette led the heisman race. A couple years ago and then when he when he gained twenty nine yards against alabama. It was over. So you have to. You have to be patient. I think i think the biggest problem for mag jones is all the competition. He has on his own team. Niger harris we mentioned devante. Waddle waddle was. It was a candidate until recently. And that really. I think he could. He could lose a few votes just from that but but it's not over yet. It will come down to the final two weekends. You can lose the heisman in the championship game. Hey thank you We're under a we're under the gun here to go to the break because we had so much fun with coach burger. We just kind of said you know what we'll get to the break when we get to it Your phone calls the rest of the ways of fun show and we still have thirty minutes remaining and we hope you'll stick around at.

"Welcome you back to the final hour on tuesday the Florida georgia game ahead. And who better to welcome back to our show than steve spurrier. Who's record. I think against the dogs was eleven and his record as a player. Wasn't all that bad either coach. I hope i got those numbers right buddy. Mark gave them to me today but Good afternoon how are you good to be with you. Yeah had the The big game. Florida georgia this week. The winter is gonna be in the lead when the east. That's for sure so. It's a huge game if he has a chance to win the sec and You had eleven wins against the dog's not pretty far behind you. Obviously ray graves zimbabwe to pretty pretty well known coaches and urban had five. I mean i'm for those who don't understand this. And i know a lot of folks outside of these days but i'm really curious to hear your store your back story because as a player this this game and everything and obviously as a coach you did as well. Yeah paul when. I got hired and ninety. Exactly what thirty years ago The history of the florida georgia game was very simple when either team georgia or florida had a chance to win the sec. Georgia always one. And i mean they always want and that's why we had zero sec championships and They had they had several had quite a few but So for us to win the sec We had to beat the georgia bulldogs. Now we had to beat tennessee and auburn and mississippi state and alabama's and those teams and then of course the championship game came in the third year the first two years Georgia was the team. We needed to be I inherited an excellent team. We were loaded on defense offensive linemen. We found a quarterback. Shane matthews already. There so we had a lot better team than they did that first year and we beat them thirty eight to seven. It could have been worse. We sorta gave away a bunch of points down around the goal about three times But they had to pawn like eleven times that that was how superior our defense was at first year so we started beating them that first year and we sort of got that little mental edge. I think on them and Every once they us in ninety seven but that that was a key game certainly for the gators coach and never lose. It never leaves you and we've heard it all week Just a back and forth especially after what happened saturday night in a buddy martin was here yesterday and he said that you've heard this before. But he he. He really is starting to see a lot of you in dan. Mullen do you see that. All i don't know about that I do a little podcast out here with shane. Matthews steve russell radio celebrity down here so forth but yet we talked about that incident briefly today. I'm sitting up there. With the athletic director scott stricter and we watch the pass at the end of the half. A rask fired it to the end zone and Got broken up. And of course everybody's watching the bone there's about a fifty fifty five yard pass and And so the house over there was like two seconds left so the house over and then all of a sudden we we look back and There's a mealy donnybrook going on out there in the middle of a very gazza. There are guys. All the whole teams are out there. And i said what started this and then they showed a replay and cow did get hit late a little bit but they didn't call the penalty But dan was out there in the middle of it and then all of a sudden the players start getting into it Scott stricklin said. I'm going down there and see see. I mean he. He wasn't very happy. None of us for very happy about it Those things don't need to happen and It was an embarrassment though for both teams both universities. Everyone everyone involved in both schools Embarrassing i say. If that's okay. Do you show me when alabama does that alabama's got the greatest football tradition and the history of college football. We all know that they've been voted that the best team and When when the great teams like alabama they don't do that kind of stuff. And i hope that's the last time that happened for us but it was. It was what's going on out there. It was it was really unusual event. I know you're You're very close to this program. You are this program and you're an ambassador. Well there's been a lot of debate about about dan doing it. We've had coaches call in that. Say it helps. It inspires the players. He had to go out there and show that he had their back others dispute. That i know what you just said. I certainly expected you to say that. But but what's the role of a coach or something like that happens. Defended any for media. Ten guys knocking down. I think the candidate thirty four times after he threw the ball in the ninety. Six games hassi and So i i thought the came out and said maybe you know we need to play like they play when we plan began and if if that's okay But we never got any worse than that is. I was just trying to defend him publicly. And of course. Danny such wonderful young man. He wouldn't complain about anything. Hit late hits or anything like that But there was no brawls on the field or anything like that so I think he was defending cal. Trask a bit but Maybe just going with the referees telling him hey you gotta you gotta protect my my guy back here..

Charlie Kirk: Coronavirus stimulus
"And you have Schumer Pelosi. In Biden one hundred twenty five years, Charlie Kirk of failure, unmitigated failure, swap failure and I. Think of my kids. You met my son. He's twenty one years old. My daughter's eighteen and I would think about your America their America and when I say you know, live free or die, American, the world on the brink I'm not joking. And very specifically will be probably the biggest choice election by far in my lifetime, and maybe since eighteen sixty, and there's a lot at stake We can go through the issues if you want, but it's. It's there's there's not one issue we agree on that. I can think of for the most part yet, and you wrote this, and it just really sent chills down my spine. You wrote this book to sound an alarm as a warning. Warning to my fellow patriots about the left's undying commitment turn America into a land, our parents, founders and framers wouldn't recognize it. It's perfectly put, and that's the direction that they're headed on page twenty seven. You have a great part about how Ben Franklin says we ever republic. If you can keep it, can you talk more about how this truly is? A referendum election in some sense and the left is trying to do to our country. Well the the story about Franklin's interesting, because it's, it's the constitutional convention and somebody says he comes out one days, says, is it a monarchy republic republic? If you can keep it Reagan, I quote him off. When I give speeches, said Freedom Charlie and you know this is but one generation away from extinction. And you know when if you want understand if socialism is adopted if their stated goal is adopted America as we know, it then becomes unrecognizable look, I can understand psychologically. There's a component of maybe people that that have been indoctrinated in schools, and you're great at this because you're going in to hostile environments every day, and you're saying you know what there's another way of thinking here, so maybe the idea that people think Charlie that some things are oh, everything's going to be free and they're gonNA forgive my loans at I'll have a guaranteed government job guaranteed government food. How did obamacare workout now? We're GONNA have Medicare for all or or double down on the stupidity of Obamacare and guaranteed retirement. Guaranteed vacation sounds great. But simple math shows you that you'll never get there. And that's why in the Fourth Chapter of the book did this whole history of socialism which is a history of failure? The point is look at the issues. If if we're talking about law and order. They've cited in Portland in Seattle and new. York and Chicago with the radicals. Joe Biden his yet that I know of said one good thing about the ninety nine percent of cops protect and serve and put their lives on the line for us every day. You're right. Okay, so law and order taxes. He's pledging to raise your taxes through the roof. That will destroy the economy Then they're gonNA just add all the bureaucracy. The Donald Trump spent almost four years. Eliminating that'll be gone. That means nobody's GONNA WANNA DO Business. That's why the Biden Obama economy was so bad. Then you look at where now energy independent for the first time in seventy five years with a number, one producer of energy in the world will lose that for sure We'll shut down coal fracking. Oil Gas exploration production those tens of millions of jobs high paying jobs career jobs for people. Then it's about amnesty. Or the United Sanctuary states of America versus Border Security and law and order of never mind foreign policy. We haven't even touched that part yet, so. There's a lot at stake. If those plans stated plans are implemented. America will go down the past you know. The Trash bin of history as Reagan, said Freedom One generation away from extinction we will. It I shudder to think what will happen the three you and your children by kids, and and maybe one day grandkids. ARE READY FOR THAT And I love the framing, because as the founder said either we're GonNa live free and defendant right now, or we're gonNA. Have a country that you know. We don't WanNa live it, and that's really the framing. That is so important right now, and you talk about and I'm really pleased about this. Shawn because I think we have forgotten about the Russia hoax too quickly in. In the conservative movement, you have been the leader on this every night. You were covering it. You didn't let us forget you help. Muller Accountable, you had investigative journalism and it just seemed that an Oxana names, but other conservatives just kind of drifted away from like Oh. That's what happened happened. You have two chapters on this in the book. Can you talk about that? Yeah I mean I call it Charlie, the the biggest corruption abuse of power scandal in history and the Ukraine was oh. Okay, we failed with Muller after three years. We won't. We won't even bother with a special prosecutor not to I'm going backwards here but to get to Ukraine. You? Know they're talking about quid pro quos, but you have to ignore their presidential candidate on video saying you're not getting a billion US tax payer dollars unless you're fire. That prosecutor is named Shokhin. WHO's investigating my son Hunter who went on a and said? Do you have any experience in oil? No Gas, no energy, nope, any experience in Ukraine. Nope, why are you being paid millions? No, because you dad, so there was a quid pro quo and millions of dollars for the Biden I call crime family. That's exactly right, so. Listen and China's even worse. You get to this whole thing what we now know and I believe what's coming. It's like, and this is where the media's corrupt because. They're just the propaganda wing of all things democratic. Socialist. We now know and have all the evidence that we'd ever need is that they protected their favorite candidate. Hillary Clinton. For things you and I and everybody you know that follows you and you have a massive audience would. Literally never get away with. If you had subpoenaed emails Charlie Kirk and you decided to delete them, and you decided to acid. Wash your hard drive with something. I had never heard about bleeped bleach bit and bust up your devices with hammers. You'd go to jail. If you violated the espionage act, you'd go to jail. They protected her. Then the narrative began we now know began in August. We know crossfire hurricane representatives actually went to brief. President Trump General Flynn. Flynn on national security, but they were there to try and get information on trump and Russia, the most amazing part of this, because the Democrats and the media live for all these years is that they knew and they said and they wrote, and they even testified. There was never any evidence, but there was a dirty Russian dossier. And now we know even the New York Times acknowledged full full of Russian disinformation and that was used. And they were warned not to use it, but high ranking people abusing their power, wanting to take out candidate, trump, transition, team, trump, and then deep into the Presidency Donald Trump. They use the dirty Russian misinformation dossier to ruin Carter pages life and roomed his civil liberties and constitutional rights, but more importantly to spy on candidate trump, and then they had their insurance policy. The fact that the mob in the media ignores it is beyond comprehension. I have so I have two chapters. One is on the Russia hoax, and the other is on this whole impeachment witch hunt. And I want everybody in your audience to understand one thing here if I can get one point across. Yeah, they hate Donald Trump, but they hate us more. They think we are as Peter. Struck, said the smell by the way I probably shop at Walmart say money. Why not you have a woman I love Walmart I love COSCO's. I Love I love it all. And I've shopped there my whole life I mean people always stopped me when I'm in a grocery? So, what are you doing here? Shopping? Wa I like to eat a cracks me up. So but think about that. smelly Walmart Shoppers while irredeemable deplorables, wow! Bitter Americans as Obama said that WANNA cling to their God. I'm guilty their Second Amendment Rights Guilty Bibles and religion I'm guilty of that, too. But. It's contempt for your audience. It's contemporary my audience. It's because they knew better. And they will ling. This was an attempted coup. Now do I think there's going to be arrests and prosecutions I? Do spend much slower than any of us would have liked, but the evidence is overwhelming. It's incontrovertible sad actually that this could happen. That was going to be my follow up. Question Sean because when I travel and we get thousands of e mails a on this topic. When are people going to go to jail? And can you give me insight on this? Can you give us any clues any crumbs that we're starting to see from Durham? It's I call them. It's funny. You say crumbs because call them the the Attorney General Bar breadcrumbs. It's like Hansel and Gretel. Remember. We're we're trying to follow and see the trail exactly yeah. He did say that the president was spied on. It did happen illegally. The. Think about this. If you go before Judge Judy I wouldn't WANNA lot because Judge Judy I. I've met her once she'll eviscerate. You I watched her show. You. Don't go before a court. The information that you have not verified. It actually said at the top of a FISO Warren Charlie. It says verified. Okay. We now know the dossier was unverifiable. The sub source we now know, said this this bar talk. We were making this up. This was never meant for anything and again Hillary paid for it funneled money separate issue. And so, what is going to happen I don't have a crystal ball but I. do know all of the facts that are in the public. Are Enough to indict many of the names that your audience is most familiar with. I would argue. Komi McCabe struck page. I'd like to know a clapper. Brennan's role in all of this ends up being and and others. The more fascinating deep question is. Will they get to that January fifth twenty seventeen meeting inside the Oval Office? This is when member Biden said George Stephanopoulos Oh I. Don't know. Anything about this, you know this whole impeachment Russia thing. He was the one same. Bring up the Logan Act fifteen days later Susan Rice in that meeting did the Cya memo the day that Donald Trump was inaugurated. Obama in that meeting shot Sally Age by saying a He. He knew everything about the Kislyak Michael Flynn call. If we look. To sum it up. I think we're GONNA get there because the evidence. Is that overwhelming? If we don't. I fear for the country? Because of you. GonNa Raid Manafort's home predawn raid and you're going to raid Roger Stone's home. For lying to Congress by the all many of the names I mentioned were referred for the same crime and you're gonNA. Pull it twenty nine guys in tactical gear, frogmen and tip off CNN cameras and. Have a biased jury for person. We won't have equal justice and equal application of our laws, and worse than that Charlie is. We lose our constitution. Yes, all our laws are are predicated on next great document and some `perfect, but it creates the path to perfection at a more perfect union so. Long answers. I'M GONNA talk. Show I love it. No, this is what our audience needs to hear, and and thank you for that and look I I completely agree because if we do not have people and I, say this as carefully as I can in handcuffs for what they did Donald Trump then I I will lose faith in the American justice system I. Don't want that and I don't want revenge I don't retribution I want people to be held accountable and I would want the same if someone did this to Barack Obama because it should never happen to a leader ever. Yes. and. They've gone after every single trump friend confidant, and yet if you oppose Donald Trump you get different treatment, talk a lot about the constitution in your book and the founding of our country, Sean going to be honest, I've been very let down by some of these supreme. Court decisions lately Can you comment on that and the importance to get more people like Kavanagh? Who's actually ruled brilliantly? Unlike John Roberts. I! I'm a little. I don't know what's happening. Roberts I have my theory I guess I have my sources people that. have their own ideas based on some knowledge? For whatever reason and I think this goes back to the obamacare decision. He has allowed. How the court appears to influence his decision making. I also sense with no evidence whatsoever. You're not a big fan of president trump, but that should not come into his thinking. Now. If getting rid of bureaucracy and lowering taxes and energy, independence, and securing our borders, and law and order are all part of this election. Let me tell you another big part of it. And it's you know we're taping this ninety. Whatever days away from the Election Day, I what about and we got asked. What about the Supreme Court? Yes, I go through a whole list I. Forget what paid maybe sixty seven I forget. A. In the book. Of. All the things Democrats would do if they're getting power one, is they? WanNa, stack the courts. Get rid of the Electoral College. And I. What, they're saying they. WanNa do is scary. They used to hide it Charlie. When I every single Liberal Democrat running for office, they would run to the left in the primary. They race back to the center, but you knew they wanted the left. There now openly embracing the most radical elements in the country and you know. Unfortunately we're watching it all. Play out nightly on TV and and that sad what I see happening when I think we have to remind a trump supporters that these are not trump appointed justices, a gorsuch I think ruled incorrectly on one ruling. That's it besides that gorsuch and cavenaugh have been tremendous and terrific verses Roberts. I just think we have to give the audience a sense. Sense of continued conviction that the trump appointed justices will continue to rule correctly and Clarence. Thomas and you know the the Thomas Family. They get no credit at all. I mean what he has done. And can you comment on that? 'cause I, E, you've actually been you open my eyes to that like eight years ago and I never learned about Clarence Thomas as a high schooler until you I mentioned it just as a quick aside on his incredible career. I like to do on TV and antidote on radio, too. Sometimes I call it the Hannity history, lesson 'cause I lived through all of this. I know this is going to see. You're not even thirty three, but my radio journey started in nineteen eighty-seven crazy right. Now on my twenty fifth year of Fox, I didn't think I last two. So I feel very blessed. As a side note if you haven't read my grandfather's son. Which is about Clarence Thomas is life. It's amazing. But. You know it's interesting because him and Scalia. To my opinion, my to most favorite justices in my lifetime. Scalia this incredible wit and genius and understanding and. They got a little acerbic side to when when he was questioning Clarence Thomas always set by quietly. What they called a high tech lynching at the time, the more modern. Let it. You gotTA. Remember Yeah. And you know. It was then Senator Ted Kennedy you know Robert Bork's America the borking of America. That was Clarence Thomas. Now we see it more recently cavenaugh. It exposes. The, who is Joe Biden? Who is his team? Because Clarence Thomas and Justice Scalia or the people we need on that court. We call them constitutionalists or originalists, the original intent, not people that would sight foreign law as liberal justices have done or not people that feel that they can rule by judicial Fiat and dictate or legislate from the bench. Democrats always wanted the court to do that which they could never. Do legislatively or win at the ballot box and that's why they want. We call them. Activists Justices Clarence Thomas. has shown a fidelity to the Constitution at the Antony Scalia. That is beyond enviable And the differences styles always interesting, too because Justice Thomas will always be quiet. That's very few questions. Anthony Scalia was in there in a wrestling with people. I don't know about John Roberts. I can't get into it, but I do believe the next president United States is a very good chance. You have a lot of older justices may want to retire. And I think that the next this election in just three short months. That's on the ballot and that's that's generational now. And Sean I think we have to pressure the Biden campaign to do what trump did and release a list of justices I mean president trump was so transparent and Joe Biden hasn't done it yet. Intentionally, of course, because he'll probably put repeated to lieber something on the United States Supreme Court I mean as horrifying as that might be so in two two quick closing question Sean and thank you for being so generous with your time anchorage, everyone you know. Know go by live, free or die. the first is this. Can you just talk about? We are heading into the election. A lot of trump supporters. They're failed. They're falling victim. They suppression pulse I wish that wasn't the case, but it seems like the memory of two thousand sixteen as faded where people forget. We were down by double digits. Can you just give a little vote of confidence to some of our listeners out there? That think we're just losing. I WANNA. Give the vote of confidence, but I want people to feel this way. I want people to think I'll use a football analogy that our mutual friend Linda that you know. Who's your biggest fan? My radio producer? He's amazing. Amazing, but she doesn't even know how many points you get a touchdown, so I'm giving these football analogies. I, want this election. I want people to feel the way I feel which is. We're on our own twenty. Two minutes to go. We have no time outs We're down by six. We got a cross. The plane marched down the field, cross the plane and hit the extra point to win. So if people feel a sense of genuine urgency and worry and concern, I'm cool with that because fear often as a great motivator, not irrational field fear, but if people do not vote, you will get the government that they're telling you. They're going to give you believe. That that is their agenda. To be a Republican and win. You GotTa always use this analogy got to run the table I gotTA. Get Florida Georgia North Carolina can't win without Ohio. No Republican's ever become president without it right? You got hold Iowa then you got pick off Pennsylvania Wisconsin hopefully Michigan maybe MINNEA- Minnesota will be play. Maybe the city of Arizona will be in play. By Joe Biden reference for those of you. That didn't get. We got a hold Arizona Gopher Nevada New Mexico. New Hampshire and Maine's second congressional district. If every single mom, this is a battle cry. You started out this interview with this. I wrote this book not because I like writing books. My last book I donated every Penny I made to charity I don't care. It's not that. This is a tipping point. Charlie this is I, don't. See if these policies are implemented how America recovers. Irreparable harm the to the rule of law to our courts to our economy, they want to wipe out the lifeblood of of the world's economy. This this promise of socialism and I go into such detail about how it's always failed. Here's a quick socialism of example. Member obamacare. Keep your doctor keep your plan. Save on average twenty five hundred dollars a year per family right? Okay. Millions lost their doctors. Millions lost their plans. We're all paying about two hundred percent more and add to that. Forty percent of Americans almost forty percent have only one obamacare Biden Carriage James Choice now. How did they do with that promise? Medicare is going broke. How did they do it? That promised social security. Charlie hate the break this here. He paying into it. You probably won't get it I. Barely Skate through, and they might give me ten cents until they means tested and then take it back, How does it? How did Liberal government work in New York City with all the anarchy cutting a billion dollars, so please? How's IT WORKING IN CHICAGO? All. These liberal cities have where the violence we've been talking about takes place. They all have one thing in common. They've been run by Liberal Democrats for decades right. Most of these states have been run into the ground by Liberal Democrats for decades. If you WANNA know what America will look like if Biden Bolshevik Bernie. Pelosi Schumer and Bozo. That team gets place look at new. York state and city look at Chicago the City Illinois. The State Look at California. Look at Oregon. Look at Portland, the city. Look at Seattle. Look at the state of Washington. Yes. And I. Love this country too much. You know it's an all hands on deck moment and Every everyone of you've got this connection with younger people in this country. You have this incredible. A credible platform you built, and it's become powerful and meaningful and transformative to the country, and you're going out there, and you're fighting on these college campuses and you. You know it's not easy to be in the middle of a I call it a shift. Show all the time, but let's well put, but you do it. And it's freedom works. Every time you give up freedom for security, you lose your freedom because the security that they're offering. These promises that can never ever be fulfilled. In America. The land. I'll close with this unless you want to go further I can keep going the. Barry Farber who was a mentor of mine. Just recently passed away like ninety ninety one. And he always said there's never been a country in the history of mankind that has accumulated more power and abused at less than the United States well I add. A country in the history of mankind that has accumulated more power abused at less, but used it to advanced human condition. The reason America is great and exceptional. If I can say that today, it's not perfect, but it's great. An exceptional is because of its people, and because of the fundamentals of liberty and freedom. So that? Natural rights versus government or rights, natural rights come from God doubt by our Creator. Life Liberty pursuit of happiness while you can't pursue happiness these days in Chicago New York Moreland Seattle. So there's a lot on the line. I love your audience. I'm so thankful for all you're doing, and you've got a great team that you building review and you're out there fighting the fight and I just urge you guys. Just fight like your country depends on it. Because America's, we know it. It's all hanging in the balance. Yet was Sean. You've been so generous the last quick thing I defend the president all the time personally as a person. Can you comment on that because I've had the opportunity to meet him? not as much as you obviously and get to know him, but a lot of people here misrepresentations in lies about who he is as a human being. Let's close on this note. Can you just mention one or two things that that people can take away from that? You know first of all. It's interesting. Nobody seems to understand Donald trump yet. They don't want to understand. I mean Donald Trump. The Dog Bites the beasts, things you feeling sad or get cancer. You Complain Trump. I mean that's how saying the leftist. But here's a guy that is so unique he this guy is like a soon nami force of energy like I've never met my life. The most distinct and unique quality he's had is as president. You mentioned the Supreme Court. He put those people that he said he put. He cut the bureaucracy as he said he'd caught, and he cut the taxes as he said he'd cut. He did the North Dakota. A keystone pipelines Anwar Likey said he would. He's building the wall or almost four hundred miles. A wall by the by election will be over four hundred miles. He found a way it was. It was an uphill climb He said he wanted to pull us out of foreign conflicts, but not back away from evil defeated. The Caliphate took out. Baghdadi and Associates took out Sola Mani took out the Al. Qaeda leader in Yemen. So? What makes him special and unique in terms of presidency is that he is who you see is who you get. The guy that's fights on twitter is the guy that's fighting for a better trade. Deal the guy that fights. Against Liberal Democrats and the media mob is the same guy is fighting to keep his promises that to me makes him the most unique transformative political figure in our lifetime. And Right now. The. We tip the scales. You have a choice. It's never been a bigger choice. He will keep his promises. Coronas been a little bit of a curve ball to the world, but even that ten days after the first case, the only guy that I know of thought about a travel ban will be donald trump. They were teaching at the time and Joe Binder Biden was call them Sinophobic, so he's a man of his word. He's a man that will fight to his last dying breath for this country and the promises he made, and that makes them in my view very transformative. Men will.

Now, what's gonna happen is volunteers that get the shot. They're not going to know if they're getting the rial vaccine or the placebo, the inert jab in the arm after two doses of the shot, Then the researchers will look and see which group experiences Mohr infections.

Let's Chill With the Quarantine 15 Jokes
"By now you've likely heard the jokes about gaining the quarantine fifteen. But which you might not have heard is why jokes and messages like this can be harmful. So today we're gonNA chat about it. For this conversation. I was joined by Dr Gail Brooks. Doctor Brooks is vice president and chief clinical officer for the Renfrew Center. She leaves the room through Clinical Excellence Board and the clinical training department, and has clinical and administrative oversight responsibility for Renfrew Residential Facility in Florida and for the nonresidential sites in California. Florida Georgia, Illinois North Carolina and Tennessee. For the past thirty years. She's treated patients from diverse backgrounds who suffer from eating disorders. Dr Brooks served as the eating disorder specialist in the HBO Film Thin has appeared on good. Morning America and has been featured in a variety of notable publications. A frequent presenter at conferences and workshops Dr Brookes, speaks on topics such as the treatment of the complex patient, eating disorders and cultural diversity. The interplay between eating disorders and trauma and eating disorders in Midlife women. Dr Brooks is a member of the I. ADP Board of Directors and former CO chair of the Academy of Eating Disorders Diversity special interest group. Dr Brooks and I discussed the link between trauma in eating disorders why there's been a spike in disordered eating during the pandemic. How to recognize if your relationship with food has become unhealthy. And the role that social media plays in eating disorders. If you notice something that resonates with you while enjoying our conversation, please share with us on social media using the HASHTAG TB in session. Here's our conversation. You so much for joining us today. Dr Brookes. Thank you for having me. It's great to be here. Yes, I'm very pleased to have you join us today because I know, we have been hearing lots and lots of you know jokes that aren't actually funny about like the quarantine fifteen and you know people thinking about their bodies a lot and we know a lot of our like self care strategies in terms of going to the gym in all of those things have been up in it, and so it feels like there's just a lot more attention than usual around like eating and body image, and so I'm glad that you were able to join us today for this conversation. While you're so right. I think all of those things that are impacting all of us, but in particular people with eating disorders I. Think are really struggling right now. Absolutely so I know dad. The National Eating Disorder Association's Instant Messaging Service has seen a seventy five percent increase in volume traffic since the pandemic begin, and I know that there is a lord connection between eating disorder, behaviors and trauma, so I wanted to hear if you could talk a little bit about you know what you think is really being triggered for people right now. Yeah, well I think in so many ways we're probably all being triggered by the crisis that we're in you, know I think the fact that we are in the middle of this whole the crisis, and also what's happening in sort of with racial inequity in all of that I think it's causing a lot of. Heightened emotion among us all. In particular depression, anxiety as well as other types of mental health conditions like eating disorders, disordered eating, and in even body image dissatisfaction are really on the rise over the last several months. Several factors that impact that the fact that we were sort of very quickly thrown into isolation, being asked to stay at home, really separate from our connections and also spend a lot of time around family members, which I think can be sometimes mixed blessing. But you know we're really social beings and I think when we don't have connection that that really does make it much more difficult for us to deal with the stressors in life, and to also to steal with with any sort of trauma that may have along with that I. Think the fears that we have around our own health fear of contagion anxiety about death I. Don't know about you, but I don't know that I ever really thought about death as much as I have in the last several months thinking you know, it could happen to me just as much as could happen to someone else, and so I think that can certainly be very. Of, scary?

Los Angeles and San Diego Schools to Go Online-Only in The Fall
"Very eventful day in Southern California has experience with this pandemic, and it's affecting Ella USD. It's remarkable I I was listening to the mayor's news conference a little bit earlier, and he made in aside essentially saying that the number of cases in L. A county positive cases in L. A county of covert 19 now outstrip all of Canada and that if L a county were its own country, it would rank 20th in the world in terms of infection, And that is a remarkable statistic When you consider also the second largest school district in the country, Of course, Ella ust resides here in L. A county. And the planners and the officials for the school district have been wrestling with what to do when August 18th arrives that, of course, the first day of the new academic year and the speculation had been that perhaps we would see some sort of a blend of online and in person instruction. So you know, maybe you would have half the class show up on Tuesday. Wednesday Thursday and the other half of the class show up on Monday and Friday. And the other half. That's not there maybe is online and you know, you just kind of makes things up to at least get the kids on campus because what we have found is that a staggering number of students when it's online instruction on Lee just do not engage for a lot of reasons out there that we don't have time to get into. So the assumption was, we would see some sort of blend like that. Then. Last week, the California Teachers Association, the United Teachers Los Angeles, the chapter basically of Sita, here and down in Los Angeles, came out. They said. We don't want any in person classes because of what we've seen over the last 4 to 5 weeks. This massive surge again this resumption of cases in L. A county and they made their case for online only instruction and AH, l ust being the second largest and not to mention also San Diego coming out in a joint statement this morning, saying, We're going to start the year with online on Ly instruction, which is Major development when you talk about the number of other districts that were waiting for a big one, like Ella to make a move like that we're going to start to see a lot of dominoes fall not only in California, but I would presume in other states. They're seeing a tick up in cases like Arizona in Texas and Florida, Georgia and all these other places, right for all the reasons you mentioned. And the first that you did mention, which is that we're the second largest school district in America. I think this is exactly right. There were the litmus test and it might be the strategy that a lot of other municipalities through the country imposed, But obviously the problems extend into well OK, so now these kids were home, so they have to have some supervision at home. And you have parents who or other, you know, kind of health care rather a childcare situations that are going to have to evolve TTO handle. These kids were now at home. I mean, there seemed to be complexities here. I'm not suggesting that these policy makers have to address all of them in the moment. I understand that there is trying to handle the classroom problem, but the other problems seem substantial. Yeah, That's the I mean, you hit on the right The complexity off the cova. 19 pandemic is one that a singular entity like Elio Stas. Biggest, it is cannot deal with on its own, because the tentacles off Cove it stretching to every little facet of our lives. Right now, That's what we're discovering Mohr and Mohr. So you know you can't restart the economy until you get kids back in classes, But you can't get kids back in classes until you have the testing in the tracing to understand where this disease is cropping up. And being able to cut off that tentacle so that ah, classroom is safe. Not for a teacher. So that a Boston safe enough for the students and for the driver so that the lunch line is safe enough for the lunch lady, You know, it's not just about the kids. It's about everyone. Those kids come in contact with and for just a singular high school. You're talking about hundreds of thousands of context that permeate from that school. And if you want to do testing if you want to do tracing in every single school, Austin Beauty brought this up the superintendent. Avella USD this morning, he said. If you want to do it in every single school across the country, you're talking about $15 billion in order to set up that program. But the federal government has been absent of leadership in this issue. And because of that, it's made it even more difficult for local school districts to come to a solution come to a decision, which is part of the reason why here we are 56 weeks out from the start of the school year and just now really coming to grips with the fact that the kids are not going to be headed back to school, and Mom and Dad may not be able to go back to work, and that We'll have further repercussions in the economy. As we move forward, Christian Carlo is with us. I want to continue this conversation. But I want to ask you if there was any indication as to what the classroom would look like. I mean, with the virtual classroom would look like I mean how they've shut this shop. Clearly they given it, some thought. So there's so much more to the story if we're going to go to an online experience as soon as August 18th It's going to affect so many kids in so many families. As we said, I mean, the numbers are overwhelming. I mean, there are on top of the Million's just what is the actual number of kids enrolled in L. A is doing Had it here. It's ah, It's a huge, huge number. But there it is. It's 1/2 a 1,000,000 K through 12 students, about 75,000 employees. On DH. So you're dealing with this, these people and as as Christians, saying they interlock in so many different ways, and all those ways exposed these people to some risks, So
Chicago - Are Travel Restrictions Coming Or Going To COVID-19 Hot Spots Effective?
"The summer travel season should be humming along right now before the pandemic hit the travel and hospitality industry expecting strong earnings since at the time, unemployment was so low and wages were so high a perfect scenario for vacationers to explore the country. But now as we hear from ABC is Ryan Burrow, the entire city of Chicago is off limits to many travelers, and Ryan joins us on the coma News line. Ryan How does the Chicago travel restriction working? Will people from Washington State be impacted? You know, it's interesting. We got this note of the emergency travel ordered issued by the city of Chicago late afternoon yesterday after the mayor had already spoken about Fourth of July plans encouraging people not to gather encouraging bars and restaurants to remain at their capacity restrictions and not Get loose with things because trouble's been doing very well in recent months as Faras keeping the numbers down, the state of Illinois has as a whole, but we got this notice. 15 states are on this list, and what the order calls for is a 14 day quarantine if any Chicago resident were to go to one of these 15 states. They include Florida, Georgia, Arizona, California, Texas all of these hot spots if they're to come back to Chicago. They need to quarantine for 14 days before they could go back out into the general publican. Likewise, if someone from one of these states comes to Chicago, they don't want to walk in the streets. They want him to quarantine, which obviously doesn't make for a very fun vacation. If that's why you're in Chicago, you know. Is there something unique, at least from my perspective about Chicago compared to other, you know, really big cities across the nation and its the giant, huh? Before air travel. Are people gonna have to quarantine before they can make connecting flights or or does that even matter? At this point, that's a great question. We don't exactly know how this will be enforced in one form or another. Is this going to be checked when someone arrives at the airport doesn't go into effect until Monday. My belief is this is probably going to be on the honor system encouraging people look, especially if you're Traveling from one of these states. We need you to stay put because we don't want to spread this virus any further. But if you are caught, and it turns out that you were in Texas, or you were in Florida or Utah, and you've come back to Chicago within two weeks, and perhaps you come down with cold, Maggie. Well, maybe there will be a fine levied against you. It's a really high stakes weekend for infection trends is, you know what has Chicago done well to be in such a good situation where At least locals are relatively safe. It's been a very slow, gradual opening bunch to the frustration of a lot of businesses, especially restaurants, who had struggled just last week earlier this week. This month, I should say, um, well, I guess we're in July now. But just a few weeks ago, the city finally opened up. Restaurants to outdoor eating, and then finally loosen some restrictions. Very limited, indoor eating. It's been very frustrating, and people have wanted to move quicker, but in the numbers, we've seen a significant decrease in the number of cases and whereas all of these other states seem to be flaring up, Chicago and Illinois seem to be pretty well. A disease Ryan Burrow with us on Coma News, Ryan thank you very much and have a good Fourth of July

I think it was more so about the lyrics and the in the story. We didn't really like nitpick a melody at all.

That came on Sunland. Talk about how they write songs and also you'll hear from the winning writers whose lives has completely changed because the landed singles on some of the alias artists of today today we have country hit makers Florida Georgia line and they're winning writer Griffin Palmer so we add a ball. I am beyond in love with Florida. Georgia line. I was in love before but I am beyond in love. Because they are the coolest coolest guys ever just blew me away in when I tell you Mr Griffin promise that song second guessing what in the world and I know you guys thing episode so the balanced Florida's I was so without further. Ado Ladies and gentlemen here is Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelly. Florida Georgia Line to tell you the story of writing one of their songs that put them on a map they are smash lab would be me. Wreksa meant I'm vk on the Florida. My parents weren't musicians. Mom Dad my sister Catherine I mean we just listen to a bunch of music. My Dad loved Aerosmith Leonard. Skinner D- my sister was the one that got us into country music when I was in fifth grade I remember. We went to the Saint Augustine Outlet Mall to pick up. The Neal McCoy wink single cassette and I was hooked and then it was brooks and Dunn and it was Kenny Chesney. And next thing you know in ninth or tenth grade and we're listening to hot boys and cash moaning and Lil Wayne Christian music here is Tyler. Hubbard started kind of writing in dabbling on guitar and like high school our junior or senior year of college. I did learn of the year. Darrell Moody Nashville that. Yeah there's a career called songwriting and that sounds awesome. I think I WANNA do that. But I didn't still pursue it or take a serious toe probably our senior year and that's when we became I started hanging out heavily and writing songs and realize that we got something special here I we wrote together. Was anything like me in that. Just so happen to be the first song that we heard on the radio it was Sirius. Xm But we call it the radio so that will special now decided to get the whole chorus tattooed on my real because it was the first one we ever wrote other. So that was a painful experience but It was an unforgettable experience in one that led us to do in a lot more together in our remember US sitting on my tailgate during the process and after the process of writing. I we were like yeah. This is this feel special man. I love working with you. I think we like literally finish each other's sentences and this is really special so just maybe we should ride again. It's been amazing as as songwriters artists. Together doing this together having my best friend my brother. We're not doing it alone at think we're better together. We're stronger and our favorite quote we've heard is if you WANNA go fast. Go alone if you want to go far go together. So I think we push each other creatively a just kind of works and so our journey in our first couple years in Nashville. I mean we were knocking on doors. We were trying to get deals. We were writing to three times a day. Trying to work different jobs. And just hustling and you know. We've had some success and thankful for our fans and I think we're more motivated than ever our still the same guys showing up trying right. Hits China right songs trying to get our voices heard. So it's an amazing thing to be able to chase our dream and create our future with creating songs. I would say that our catalog just kind of evolves with every album with every chapter stage of life that. We're in baby a all. I know this song has a pretty funny story actually started so we were at dinner. It was it was at night and we got a call from our manager they said. Hey actually I know you're you're right was canceled but there's girl. Bb WREKSA WHO's available in? Would love to write with you guys and and we thought well sure yeah. Let's do it. I don't really know who. Bb REX is. But let's go in there and make the most of it it'd be fun became and we always kind of say is that there is a title in every conversation. There's a song idea in every conversation. You GotTa do is listen so as we were leaving dinner that night heading back to the studio. We were having a conversation. My wife was there and we were like men you know. I don't I don't know how this is GonNa go. We don't know who this B B. Rex girly is. Don't know what kind of Song we're gonNA write data and she just said Hey. Just go have fun and do what. Y'All do and if it's meant to be it'll be and I said will okay. We'll go do that and I think that's the title. We'll take that into the room tonight because we were just kind of out of titles it had been a long week here and we sort of given all we had and so you know quickly said art. I'm at least going to see it's at tidal resonates with anybody and we win and instantly said that and they're like else like that so so we get we get back to the studio. We meet her she. She thinks that we're Little Big town. She doesn't know who floors. Lana Zak oil. So it was. It was kind of funny. We both had to kind of tell each other who we were and then it was one of those kind of special nights where we were just trying to channel who we were. We were really intentional about you. Don't country song. We're not gonNA write a pop song. Ub You let us be us and let's just see what happens here unless it's a great song. We did it that night. We did a little demo. So David Garcia. Who was there that night and he just started playing chords on the piano. We said Yeah. Let's roll with. That feels. That feels cool. It's hard to get down to the details too much because it really did just feel like the song fell out of the Ska and so when I when I think back on details. It's really kind like I. I don't remember a whole lot other than it feels like. Those coach started and then we started. Just be our sales in writing what we wonder right back. No need fast singer here.

"Here's the problem for Florida. Fans Dan Mullen is mark. Richt and Kirby smart is they flip roles the rivalries level respect. What's wrong with being mark? I mean if you're GONNA lose all you win ten games a year and get fired after fifteen years. You'RE GONNA lose your if you're GONNA go one in five or whatever against against Herbie's smart. That's a bad deal for Florida. Fans I mean because ultimately SEC team race right now and we'll be next year. Probably Lee who was last has been for a long time Florida Georgia. And so if you can't win that game probably not winning the Division One hundred percent and so it's all going to come down to that game and right now Dan. Mullen can't beat Kirby smart and the question is will he be able to and that's that's ultimate question because it's back it's back there too. Well coached teams. The problem is they switched. Sides is yeah it really. I guess as we wrap up the national implications that game it's outrageous to watch. ESPN ESPN employees. Kirk herbstreet and yeah and Heather. WHO HAVE I need to stop? Because she just a call. I know it. But they're putting Florida in the top. Ten over like organ or Utah and you're like what yeah watched. Watch the film. What are we doing? Let's not Geraldo Georgia to Alabama Georgia. Barely beat Notre Dame lost to South Carolina. They're not absolute top five five team. Florida needs to be fifteenth in the country. And you need to let some of these teams in Oregon. What are we talking about the first game of the years game and should have won it and the price should have won it but anyways we talk about that forever and it was it was really good to watch at least one? Good good game this weekend really excited about this weekend coming up obviously LSU LSU Bama's the name of the game two one against two one against two and it's going to be the matchup and we're really excited to to analyze that in the next medicine. The site show coming up later. This week really fired up about it. There's also some other unknowns at Bryant Denny believe there's also penn state plays Minnesota two unbeaten in the Mid West Iowa Wisconsin's pretty good game.

It's going to be really fun and there's GonNa be some special guests a one other thing I do want to mention people said what players are coming. What players are coming? This has nothing to do with former players. I'm not if they come great. I mean I've had a handful. I have a relationship with that. Said they want to stop by. So there's probably going to be some there but I'm I am not using a single player to promote promote it market. It I don't. It has nothing to do with them.

"Baylor's the team to beat right now now and then there's little AC skip over this one little old there's Clemson and that's about it. And whoever did we arnout who could win the coastal yet or is it still possible seven way. Tie Four and four They're I certainly don't care. It doesn't really matter. No it's like. which mouse do you pick to feed to the BOA constrictor? I don't know it doesn't really matter. Just feed them to Clemson and let's see how good Clemson is in the playoff. That's about it but I still. I talked about it earlier. I guess the last week how Clemson I think his has improved. They've done things that I said they needed to do. And they doing it. There develop trevor. Lawrence is developing that often developing. So I think Clemson is a much more formidable contender on the national landscape than they were three weeks ago But I I don't think they're going to be tested at all. The Nice thing is that they get these easy games. E tweak to go do it and get better like that offered this week okay. That's just a practice believable believable. But that's a little national landscape a little current event conversation. But I really WanNa talk about the game of the week Florida Georgia. It was the world's largest outdoor cocktail party did not disappoint and I do want to review my preview because after the game I was like man. I kind of all of this going to your own horn. I'M GONNA to my own horns the teen minutes here we go. He's willing to still call it. The world's largest outdoor cocktail party but he won't call it the Red River shootout unbelievable the political correctness man. I don't like shooting but he loves cocktail birdies. I drink a cocktail. I won't shoot anybody anyways. Let's get back. But here's my analysis of the game. I said Florida would struggle on third down. They certainly did twenty two percent on third down. That is a major problem. I said Florida wouldn't be able to run the ball. They did not twenty one yards. You can't do that if you're a top ten team and don't get me started on the fact that they are still a top ten team but you can't run the ball for twenty one yards one point one yards per carry and win the football football game. I also detailed the inequality of Florida's. Oh Line against Georgia's front seven. It was absolutely apparent the whole game they dominated the run game two sacks they they force twenty total QB pressures on forty attempted pathways. Half of the Times Kyle. Trask was dropping back to pass. He felt some type of pressure. It was a complete destruction. And what I I didn't talk about and should have was a Dan. Mullen showed his ass almost Tom Herman Herman fashion on how he mismanaged issues. The entire game and I mean like issues. You'RE GONNA happen. I don't care if you're the best team to ever play college football. You're going to have some issues in a game. You're you're GONNA have adversity. It's about how you manage it. And the players respond to how the coaches manage and we talked about it a little bit like would notre dame getting their ass. What last week and I talked about what it's like like to be on that in that scenario and this is a much smaller microcosm of that but it was infectious? I watched sit on the sideline. I mean he ripped the running back coach. A handful of times wasted time out. Once I mean the time out I get it. Why you'd be pissed? Either coming off the sideline and there was no running back in the game and he went ballistic and it actually happened one other time. I'm not going to say who it was but at Florida it happened once and where we came off the sideline and there was no running back in the game. Amy and Dan was in the box throw and shit like he was like you. Coach one buck and guides. Don't make sure you're one guy is in a year and I'm trying to vote for three people total. I mean he went off and then I saw him absolutely destroying Billy Gonzales. Their receiver coach because A play was about to happen and like a couple of wide receivers. Didn't I know the play. And they're like look and didn't know ETA call another time out so there was a number of things which happens. Those things sometimes happen. I mean you obviously would like them not to happen but Dan Mullen mismanaged managed it so poorly and the demeanor of the team is going to be infected by that and he he was a petulant. Little baby on the sideline. When those things happen well he also did literally pulled down his pants and show is? I think that I thought that would've made sportscenter but yeah not many cameras got it but I think what what you saw was. He was desperate he want. He knew he needed that game so badly. Not Not for his job but just to Get validity on his program. Take the next step you take the next steps. He was so tightly wound the entire game and so over the top. You just knew that was what's going to happen. And so here's my initial reaction. My initial reaction from the game was we had a couple initial reactions. THE FIRST ONE IS D. Andre Swift is one the best in the country not only I mean. They did a good job limiting him running the football but his pass protection was clinic. It reminded me of Ezekiel Elliott. In in that facet of of his game I mean I'm talking about picking up linebackers cutting linebackers picking up protections. He was unbelievable. I mean four four times I was like wow how look at that. I mean. That's a play that no one cares about Zeke. Had A I mean. Dozens of them were in his time at Ohio State Times where he would be the lead blocker and cut a guy just like do things like that is a a great football player. Not just a great runner but he was in my opinion the play the game because of that and then the second can thing maybe not to this might have been. The first thing I noticed was holy horrific offensive line play by Florida I mean. They're left tackle graded out like sixty two percent. The rest of the old line was below sixty percent and it was brutal. I mentioned that before though. Well sign problems but that was that was one of the previous game for sure but they they showed up yeah and and also there was a critical break for Florida that really helped them in the momentum of the game to try to stay in it when Dr Siptah run a holding call or whatever it was the penalty that was huge with four. Four minutes left I think and the other one the other huge play. That was the difference in the game was when Lawrence Cager was wide. It opened a wheel route and I re watched it. And it's like it's just it's own coverage Thurs one high coverage and the safety that dropped down. The flat took the flat to save. DROPDOWN has to carry the wheel and starts wheeled. The safety starts looking around like he's confused running the other way and I'm like Ho- what were you going to stay with him and he just just let him cut him loose. Caja played played pretty. Well my staff back. He definitely did. He definitely did. He was and I'm GonNa talk about their offense in a minute but He was he was in the one of the other players of the game for sure. But then when George when Florida's on defense I was I was actually surprised that they didn't play better on defense. I mean first of all. I've said it every every show and I might say it every show. I might just start off by the way double digit Miss. That Lord of Miss Ten tackles. You can't win the game. Double Digit Ms Tackles and the other thing they didn't didn't do was they didn't pressure Jake from you can't let him sit back there. I mean they had nine total pressures to Georgia's twenty Georgia pressured contrast twenty times. FRAHM got pressured nine times. He had twenty on twenty nine true passing attempts. There was twenty receptions in one. PB You so. The secondary was did not show show up to twenty. twenty-nine is in one P had no more use it. it's terrible. CG CJ Henderson was targeted twice for two catches and and he. I didn't think he played horrible when we wash it this morning but he did not play on the level of some of these other corners were talking about in the country like digs at Alabama. Are Jeff Okudaira. It'll stay here now. The other thing I will say is Jonathan Greener is really good. The linebacker at Florida is. He's really good player. He had three the of the nine. QB pressures himself and their highest rated defensive player. He played phenomenal all game. But I've said since August and I think it is still an accurate depiction fiction of the Georgia offense. I think jake from is a really good quarterback naughty elite really good and I think they have to skill players on offense. They of a national caliber De'andre Swift went for one hundred twenty two all purpose yards and Lawrence cager had one hundred thirty two receiving yards together. They had sixty four percent of Georgia's entire production and I think Lawrence cager being out hurt them prior to this game and I think him coming back with huge but I don't I think they have another player that is a national a nationally relevant skilled player on offense. And that's that's their issue right now In Georgia went on defense defenses. It's a whole another story. Six tackles single digit. Then you win automatic and you know what they really did. Here's what I was most impressed with. Georgia felt they could match up across the board and just needed to execute. That was their game plan. We don't need you do anything special. We just need to lineup no our assignment and execute. They blitzed blitzed seven snaps on thirty seven pass attempts seven. They didn't even feel like they had to put pressure on. Kyle truck with pressure with blitzes. That's disrespectful yeah. I mean it was disrespectful but it was it was a it was a depiction of Florida's align. It's perfect we're good. We'll play bass defense. You just get pressure with twists and just straight execution and I mean Florida on offense was exactly what I think they've always been. I will say that Michael P Ryan had had made more positive yardage runs out of horrifically plays fresher than I've seen him he would have two guys cut loose or beat a guy in in the Backfield mega-guys miss break a tackle and get three yards. And you're like that was an impressive run it will it will say it on the stats sheet. But that was impressive. I'm telling you give that guy in online. I wonder what he could be Seriously that's for sure. And the other player on Florida's offense that I've two other players that I think are really good. One is Freddie Swain. He's only as a player that graded out over eighty percent. And he I think he played really well. He had a bunch of yards and I think he played well the guy that is one of the nation's best tight ends is kyle pits and it's partly because they don't have much of a skill in the perimeter and the other part is he's that good well he's like a wide receiver. I mean He. He was horrific and pass pro in the game. That was part of their problem but he he was really really good in the past gas game for sure I'm here's what I'm mostly confused about now going to rant and then I'll stop but I'm so confused. Why Fan Jeff? Jefferson isn't a feature in this offense. I I watched him in high school. I Wash Ole miss every in even in the game against Georgia. He flashes he makes a place scores a touchdown. Why are we not throwing this kid? That ball more. And it's probably a number of reasons. Oh Line quarterback everything but van. Jefferson is one of the most underutilized. NFL talents in the country. Right now and it's it's sad for him but what he made it. He made that decision. He came to Ohio State. Recruited them they could beat Ohio state right now. That's just a fact. And he went to Florida because he was sold a pipe dream and here. We are van. He made a mistake twice. Can you go on the portal already again. Now this is zip. Now go under free agency if you make I mean he. I don't think I think it just kind of in conclusion before we wrap up this I guess analysis section here is ultimately. This is the plan to win. And it's infallible. It never fales. Georgia ran the ball decent. I won't say well but they ran the ball decent. I mean three point two yards a carry one hundred twenty yards. Florida did not twenty yards overall. That's a recipe for disaster. Florida was to a nine on third down. Georgia was twelve eighteen sixty seven percent. That's a great day of third down production by Georgia. Four four four in the red zone credit we talk about critical offense. Those are the two critical scenarios where you need to make a plate third-down red zone. They did it and then single. All digits tackles and no turnovers protected the football. You're GonNa win when you do that. Yeah well that's literally the formula that everybody says when they talk about a game run on the ball sit protect. The ball converted fourth-down third-down or Red Zone. That's it and what I did feel on Saturday. which was awesome is we are witnessing? The revitalization revitalization of the cocktail party. I mean it's back back from the Oh five two two two thousand nine era. It is back the rivalry is back. Here's the problem for Florida. Fans Dan Mullen is mark. Richt and Kirby smart is they flip roles.

"Think of ten other names that they hire are as assistance. That could just absolutely make a huge impact in state and I think that's what they need to do. My my thought for the head. Coaching job is somebody. Who's that South Florida now? That could also legendary recruiter of south Florida. GonNa that's never going to happen. No I mean look at his success Florida and he's fighting for his job at South Florida. That's that's not as sexy higher. I mean that would have been sexy higher if he was still the defensive coordinator at Florida or the head coach Louisville but what he's done at Texas and what he's done a south Florida. I'm with you. That would be a great hire. There's no way they do that not with what's happened at Texas and south Florida. So far later I mean if you just wanted to make a great hire. That would be great IRA. But they won't do that. I love that idea of doc. Holliday Florida. Well here's here's the other guy and this won't happen either but the other one that they absolutely should make a run at is go. Get the coach. That actually is winning organ a guy that is relentless and can recruit south Florida. He's one of the best recruiters in south Florida in the last the last ten fifteen years and he was very successful at Fau. We got a raw deal. I've talked about him a number of times. He was at Alabama. Now is an organ. They've there are one loss team in my opinion and should be undefeated. They should have beat Auburn. But we all know how that when you go higher Mario Cristobal. And now you're getting a much improved proved Willie taggart like a much better Willie taggart. You're getting your guy from Oregon. It's just this time it's a better guy for more. And here's what here's my biggest fear for Florida State Fans and Florida state date in general is that they go hire a great coach. That's a bad fit. A Luke fickle Campbell at Iowa state. That's just for like a hot name. Not because they're great coaches and they figured out but you're only giving a guy a year and a half those guys. Those guys aren't Florida guys. They don't know the fickle the Mid West guy in the Midwest Guy Guy and yeah and they'll talk about the other one they talked about his mark stoops and he's he's a really good coach. What he's done it Kentucky's nominal now? I I don't think that would be a misfit but I think I think there's a bigger name out there that they could get that can make a greater impact. You GotTa think this. This is the most heavily recruited state in the country. Florida Georgia Texas California. Most heavily recruited states in that country. You need somebody that has a proven. I'm talking twenty five year. Track record of being able to recruit Florida Against everyone who has beat Alabama who is beat these teams and gotten kids and knows the coaches knows the landscape. But I don't WanNa talk about it forever but I could. They are at a crossroads of all crossroads right now because they have slowly declined the whole Jimbo thing blew up and now here we are with Willie. Taggart Eggert horrible higher in my opinion and now it exp- implodes like anyone with a brain would assault coming and now it's like Oh shit. This is that that higher that either brings us kind of creeps us back into relevancy or completely ruined all the momentum that Bobby Bowden built for thirty some years yeah it was just reality but that also brought me up to another point I wanted to talk about is there are there was I guess. Now Willie Taggart got fired. Four coaches in their second year and all of them are foreign five right now and so I think clay travis put it out. Like whose program is the strongest right now. Those four coaches second year head coaches all four and five right now chip Kelly at UCLA. Scott Frost at Nebraska. Jeremy Pruitt at Tennessee and then Willie taggart obviously just so. It was a four coaches with honestly similar Miller production. And that's why it's like a Willie Taggart got fired clearly. They thought that was a mistake from the beginning. Where there's other three coaches I think that the the programs thank you know what it's not going to plant? Its not going as we hoped. But there's hope moving forward and so the question is which program is Got The best chance for a strong outlook in the future. Yeah I think you look at that. Listen the first thing you mentioned. Chip Kelly and Scott. Frost obviously have the support of the the program the longest. Yeah the longest leak. She is supposed to be the savior of Nebraska and he's struggling a second year and you even thought and everybody thought this would be a year that they improved greatly. They haven't Jeremy PRUITT has. I've been impressed with Tennessee since everything happened in the beginning of the year rebounded because I thought Jeremy pruitt would go the way Willie Taggart but they've rebounded from that embarrassing Georgia southern Georgia state. What whichever one it was? Yeah it doesn't matter whichever loss but Chip Kelly and Scott Frost. I think are the two that have the longest lesion have the programs in the better spots. Yeah and ultimately I think what's GonNa hurt Chip Kelly as the PAC twelve garbage and he's he's four and five in a garbage conference. Scott Frost and Jeremy Pruder Pre playing coaching in strong conferences. So I'm not saying they're not doing a good job at UCLA. I'm not saying that won't work out in the end. But he is producing the same as Scott Frost or Jeremy pruitt in a much lesser easier. UCLA has had some flashes of good play. We mentioned it last episode. There's a chance they stink. Wholesale two of of those three that are at their schools still have a chance? Yeah which I mean probably not anymore. I'm probably not anymore but the weekend I do want to talk about one other thing kind of the segue that a I watched Fox Fox big noon kickoff. It's hard to say that they need to repair that noon. Kick all right but but either way I listened to food breakdown of Justin. Herbert and I listened to urban praising Justin Herbert on the pre-game show right before the Urban Oregon Game Not on the eleven o'clock show but right before the Oregon game they cut studio and they were praising Justin Herbert and it really struck me. Because I've watched. I watched all year just in Herbert over the summer. I've watched although I think one or two games this year and I was blown away at how much he was selling. This kid and I was sitting there. Like what does he think that like. Has He watched the film. And this is my issue with sports media because I know how smart urban is and I know I mean. He cut on the film of Seven Games. I mean he's going to have as a spot on an analysis allison on a player. Is anyone better than I would sit here library. Why would he say that? So then I tweeted about it because I disagreed. With his assessment his assessment was that he was as great leader. Great player one of the top three quarterbacks in the country I mean just on and on and on accolades the projections the analysis and I was sitting here like I don't think he's in the top. It's five I don't think he's a first round draft pick. I mean I disagree entirely have watched seven seven six games this year and then he went out in the first quarter and when I tweeted about it it was after the first quarter. And don't get me wrong. I mean I will. I will be as an open book as anyone. He turned it on after after. I tweeted about it. which so he saw your tweet but I mean he turned it on and played extremely well for the final three quarters against a very below average team but the first quarter? He was three of seven. For twenty seven yards had one horrific throw an interception organ had sixteen yards on offense total. He started off horrible. And I've seen that out of him all all year because he so inconsistent and what they did was they did a great job putting him in position for success after that I mean six of his whatever. He had all six of his completed. He was six for six. Behind the line of scrimmage on little screens little little touches quick touches he was another eight for nine from zero to ten yards so under ten yards he was whatever that is fourteen of fifteen which is great. You put them. You set them up for success this supposed to be the number one quarterback coming out right. They said last last year he was the number one quarterback possibly coming out. He was over three throwing the ball over twenty yards. I mean I think he played about above average. That's what he played and he we started off horrible and that but that being said I wanna say he played really well. He graded out over ninety percent. He finished really strong. This this has not been his. Mo All here he has been inconsistent throughout the year. I mean he played very poorly against Auburn below average against cal and then he started this game below average he has been inconsistent assistant and the way he started the game. Saturday was no different. He comes out slow looks very average and then he turned it on and plays the way atop. QB talent should against the ninety. Four th ranked defense in America. There the seventy ninth best pass defense in America. There should have been no slow start. This should have been a top ten. PICK DYSON UP A DEPLETED IT and poor secondary in defense but it wasn't and so it really made me think like how much film do these guys watch and I know a couple a couple from my time as a coach and I know a couple that do watch a lot of film like I've said before Joey Galloway Film I think Brady Quinn watches a lot of film because him and I ed conversations over my career several times where I was like. Yeah he knows what he's talking about. He's really watched US or watched. Whoever I do this it's probably similar? Urban is probably similar to how he gained planned as a head coach. And here's how he game plan. He would watch three hours of film on Monday morning. And that was it done. He felt like artists. What I need to see then he relied on stats and things on the board and and if if he if he found out one of the stats was wrong he would below up? Because 'cause it was he's he's basing his opinion along gameplay on that list on the board yeah and it made me think like I'm sure that's how he's commentating or analyzing Zinger whatever it is he's he watches enough and then he gets stats. Analytics from an intern really studies them and then he feels like he has an opinion. And it's like I wish she would watch the film and he probably doesn't WanNa spend the time doing it. I don't blame you. He doesn't have to but it it just made me think. How can this is what I in? My opinion is is the best analytic show on sports media. How can they be wrong twice? Like that. Like talking about Oklahoma's defense was was finally elite. Alex grinch brought him back to elite elite status. And I'm sitting here like what no much improved but elite. WHOA timeout? He's the first one that gets pissed when you use the word when it's not applicable and ends up Buzzword for sure and then to talk about Justin Herbert like. He's one of the top three quarterbacks in the country so that he's not he's not but that being said I just I think Oregon and Utah. Utah The two teams in the PAC. Twelve that are obviously have a are destined to meet up etel meeting them and they are the ones that that if they handle their business could be making an the argument for the play offs. The SEC is clearly now a Georgia in the East Alabama the winner of Alabama. LSU This weekend. That's the destin matchup side side of some bizarre scenario where Auburn Beats Alabama and then all of a sudden it's like a complete frame read. The big ten is very clearly right now. Ohio state PENN STATE VERSUS MINNESOTA. WTA probably has an outside chance right. Yeah Minnesota's got some tough games down the road do but I'm saying right now. Yeah but Ohio. State Penn state winter. That game game barley comes out of the east and probably comes out of the big big ten. Yeah the big twelve is really bizarre. Yeah I mean right now it's Baylor. Yah Yeah we do. They have divisions like that. Or how do the top two teams. It's it's bizarre very bizarre but but right now it looks like Baylor Taylor is going to be one in Oklahoma or probably and you know Baylor has some tough games that they play Oklahoma and Texas..

"Another day. We're glad you're here. Friday the weekend has arrived, and it's a Cinco de Maya weekend. Everybody ready to celebrate. How to fail and they were let's get right to it. I mean yesterday was insane around here. We had Georgia fans upset we had Florida fans upset with Georgia. It was it was like a civil war had broken out. And it's only early may at the last two years, we're kind of slacked off. But you've got to think about that. Okay. We had MAG. Well, really not much to think about we got like got mulling in now, we don't have. We don't have all the negativity from a lot of injuries last year. And it was a close game in four port planning is not in their DNA. Now, what is your to have a better offencive line? Will you know what they better because term check their backup quarterback playing football in another state. I'm doing Curtis. Mark coaching wins the national championship first purview. Dan in Missouri game this past year did after. About leading to Missouri and whatnot in the I'm not making excuses for that we lost. But taking too. It wasn't a big day ozone homecoming. Well, so where does Florida Georgia rank if you ask Florida fans, Georgia fans, it's in rarified air we? We didn't put it nearly as high. I mean, this is right now this is not lifetime. These are games. That matter today, I'd games that mattered backward. Herschel Walker and Lizzy scour playing. Auburn alabama. It's still relevant because Auburn has beaten Alabama twice Alabama L. She's always game. We talk about. And then we usually watch a blowout Georgia, Florida, Georgia, Auburn, Florida LSU still pretty important is Tennessee can get back on that list. That's the question. I have. I mean, Tennessee, Florida, Tennessee, Alabama, these great, Tennessee games. But not too many of them have mattered lately. Headlines today before we get to deep into the weeds talent near and far helped Pittman build the George wall. So what's what does this mean? What's high in the headline the author of that is Mark Weiss Syria from the down in Athens, and Mark thank you very much for joining us here on this Friday afternoon. So help us better understand how we got to this point with Georgia football because it's a different story than it was a couple of years ago afternoon tickle. Yes.
