"Also have this area This tree grove. That will have native undergrowth which is soon as we get some educational science. We have temporary scientists out there explaining why we're removing the private because for some people it could say. Hey you know that was green and pretty and you know look beautiful so we definitely want to educate people about why were removing that. So Rebecca and I are super excited today about the start of that is like the arch nemesis of any person working with plants or anything like that so. This is a big accomplishment for the gardening plant community today. So what do you do there. And they're right now with some really massive equipment I believe they called it the shark they're essentially just going through and cutting down any they know what privet looks like. They're identifying that in any tree that's smaller than a belief six inches in diameter. They just removing it so any of those massive oak trees that are in there. They're gonNA leave those alone but they also identified a couple of other invasive trees like berries and they're just literally early cutting it all down originally Rebecca. We're going to try to tackle it on our own and I think I have all these older during at your disposal aren't you are thinking through. This is eighty. You can teach these kids how to mob. There's it could be doing some some good child. Labor opportunity there. I don't think that we want to promote that. Amy had been bragging at the beginning of this project. How she had never gotten poison ivy and we win an Ah yes I need harm and gone and we actually got it so this is a lesson for your listeners? Actually so Poison Ivy roots are also very toxic. And you can get reactions from the route so what we thought or privet roots and we were down on our hands and knees We had down there about your immune to poison ivy aggression out on those. How's things we were so proud of her date? At forty five years. I grew up in the country. I was around Poison Ivy L. Y.. Yes can you guys where go pros for the next season. uh-huh takes right again but we are so careful. Now we're more in. You Know Gloves House and lawn sleaze. I never realized how bad poison ivy and so I apologize I ever never completely empathized. It's horrible when when talking about this SARS appropriate. Yes correct I mean it. Sounds like an undertaking king. How how large of an area has this privet invaded so far? Gosh well the area that we're working on is less than half an acre but if you I mean I would say in this area of Texas I you know you can't find a tree grove. That doesn't have it so yeah I could be driving down the road and you'll see it everywhere I mean it's everywhere we pointed it out to you then all of a sudden you would drive you like oh there it is there. I can no longer a look at landscapes and think. Oh how beautiful can all I see is the private. It's it's very invasive. You just you just got to hijack that competition and you just call it a war with rivers on. We've won in one battle but there is still award and we are so excited to have the city support for that as well they were willing to come in and take care of it for us because we would still be out there with poison ivy. Trying China Clippers. I mean this does feel like something you could do is like bill it as a community activity with with not just that but The planting of the wild flowers and milkweed and everything. Why why not advertise it as like on on this Of Saturday of this month we're GONNA go out and see how many people sign up. I'm just pretty. You know absolutely and other members of our organization. There is a city pool that's nearby and they were planting pollinator garden at that city pool and they made it a community event. They often make it a community event and advertise for anybody to you. Please come help out. We had talked especially when we were talking to regional water district about this private removal and they mentioned Oh get the Eagle Scouts in there. You know look for an organization that wants to do donate some time with a worthy project So the problem with the PRIV- removal for that one in particular was Portland. I D I mean. Even the city was like this is going to be an issue with the point Community offense absolutely are a fabulous idea And we some other members of our organization have definitely worked with that we will absolutely especially since this is new to us. We wanted to get our feet wet and make sure that we had a good understanding of what we were doing. But like Rebecca said our plan is to include our education campers and especially you know if we have native prairie already. There's different different citizen science programs that you can participate in where you can just download program on your phone and keep track one is called the Let's see the monarch Larva Monitoring Program L. M. L.. MP and you can In the spring go out and look for eggs or caterpillars and monitor it and then actually send your data to these different organizations And they coordinate all the data and can then have bigger picture research and see how the population is going so citizens sciences very important to for gathering data so if you guys had unlimited funding if you unlimited task or d. here what is the dream project would undertake for these. These partners cleaners that working with private landowners. So Texas is ninety nine percent private land and so having the opportunity unity to work with those land owners to establish more of the native grassland And really it's not just benefiting the monarch mark butterflies when you work with them because there are other species that benefit from the grasslands like pheasant and quail as well as also when you have these areas you know. Hunting is a huge thing in Texas and it provides areas for hunting as well so and for people that may not hunt but wildlife observation. So having these your rancher is basically working with them to increase milkweed density not to get rid of the milkweed but also making sure that we're staying working with them so they are accomplishing what they want to as well so I think for us you know that ninety nine percent private land that would be the main thing to do is to get the word out And work with these ranchers. That would be a great place to end but I just have one more question. Hopefully it goes well. I have as you're talking about. Competition is thinking about all the things that you have going on in the zoo. Does it ever get competitive around here. Like is is the skunk guy I listening right now. Just fuming all the butterflies get all the get all the headlines And oh we all like butterflies is we need skunks to no one will talk to you. How do you my more serious question is when when you guys get together and decide? What Rebecca's doing so much public? Outrage is your title public outreach coordinator or education coordinate education coordinator how do you. So how do you decide. What's the kind of does everyone sit around and brainstorm? It'd be like these. Are the things that we want to highlight at this time in this in this season he's in or how. How do you land on the projects that you do? Oh Man I would say aiming I because our project is fairly new compared to other projects going on at the zoo I usually wear the ones like. Hey Give us you know we want the shoutout or the attention or the funding. So usually we're the ones I am excited. Projects had so zoo is very supportive of conservation so there are lots of ongoing projects here and we are able to. Of course give our time and efforts the zoo supports and that way to this project and then a lot of of the different You know you may end up talking to Kelly who works within quantity. Sometimes we get outside funding as well as we mentioned we got funding from. TRW You d and the fish and wildlife partners program so the zoo is very supportive of all the efforts and then typically were reaching out for money from different organizations Pinhas Asians and so we don't have to be too competitive. There tends to be like the International Rhino Foundation Supports Rhino projects or the International Iguana Foundation gives gives grants for Guana project. So typically we don't have to be too competitive with people here and I hope we try to work as a team. It just kind of wanted to bring it up just just so listeners. Because Fort Worth Zoo is considered as listed among one of the top five ebbs zoos in the entire country and I would agree in in the little bits that I've seen of what the public's Ben Ben mostly traded to behind the scenes Exciting Tours But it's something that listeners can go to Fort Worth Zoo dot org and you can see all of the many different projects going on because you may be listening to this two years after it was recorded and they might be all sorts of new things going on so or check out in your area.

"Ready and welcome to a here? We are podcast today. I am venture an around. The Fort Worth Zoo once again with my guest co host for couple episodes here so fear Rocklin anthropologist author of one plant stream so feel what we get into so far to even while we started the morning by visiting some rhinos Very handsome specimens and and some hippos. Yep just your average morning just another Tuesday. I'm very excited about this podcast. Today we have two guests from the Fort Worth Zoo Amy Kozlik in and Rebecca Gonzalez are joining us. Hello Good morning being on the show. Thank you for having us. So you guys worked with the monarch project. Here are at the zoo but you. You both also do individually duke some kind of different things. Why don't you give people a little bit of a background? I don't know who wants to go I I I'll go first so I'm Rebecca. I have worked at the zoo for about five years. Now I'm in the Education Department so my main role with this project specifically really as outreach education but I also work on camp so summer camp We've got three year olds all the way up to high schoolers our a lot with student programs and and are volunteers so summer camp like here a summer camp is we have about two thousand Kiddos that come for about ten. Yeah and we do some fun different curriculum. Each week they go on to the zoo they do all the different seal activities to hear that mom and Dad. Are you listening to this. I never got to go to the zoo summer camp. Yeah they get to go and play you know in the zoo all day long. It's pretty fun that's amazing. Aw that's so cool a me. Well I actually have a very convoluted background Idaho. For how much of it you would like the whole thing. All right you're origins my origin story. Well I am from New York State. I went to Cornell University for my bachelor's degree and I always knew I wanted to work with with animals but I actually never wanted to be a veterinarian so looking for different routes and one of my courses was an animal nutrition class and it fascinated me I even like the biochemistry. That was involved with it so I took that class and I was like this is interesting but I'm not necessarily surly sure I want to work with Meat Animals or production animals. So I thought about the zoo nutrition route and I actually ended up going in that direction taking a zoo nutrition class and I thought that was fascinating that you would work with longevity of a species and there's just so many different kinds of zoo animals that Just find it very fascinating So then I ended up going from Cornell to National Zoo in Washington. DC and. I worked on a master's degree at the University of Maryland. College Park. Initially with desert tortoises But then because they are a threatened species I ended up Not being able to do specific research per se with them so I finished off my degree with striped bass a little bit different. And then when I finished my I'm degree at Maryland and ward WHO's director of nutritional services here at the zoo who you also talked with was starting a nutrition lab at the Fort Worth Zoo and so I actually moved from Washington DC to Fort Worth Texas and started my job in the nutrition lab. And I worked there for about ten years. full-time I did nutrition research Did a bit of field work in nutrition And then after that I went part time for a little while to have two daughters Lucian Mia and then wanted to come back full-time so at that point Taryn Wagner. WHO's director of animal programs here at the zoo Hired me part time and I stayed part time with the nutrition department so I have almost two different jobs at the Zoo and part of my job with Taryn was the monarch conservation work which I then teamed up with Rebecca and about. I'd say five years ago we started working together on this project. Seems like you you guys need to know so much about so many different things as it seems like if you're at a zoo you probably can't really specialize in just one species species is right. That's how my job has worked out absolutely. Yes there's so many different types of species and you think about all of the different diets here at the zoo. So somebody specializes in domestic cat nutrition. That's very specific and there's been a lot of research done in that field but there really hasn't been a lot of research done with many of the zoo animals so you tend to have to know that but then also yes be able to kind of work with something that you know and and go from there so you always tend to work with a lot of species season and that sort of how my career has gone as well So we're going to hear about The new monarch project are you into butterflies. Sofi are you you more like a mosquito person or I mess with both of them. Real Weird on enterprise so so tell us a little bit about the monarch project. Yeah so it got started about five years ago. I think anyone anyone to kick it off with little explanation about how the nation got involved with monarchs. Well I think it really became public the decline of the Monarch Butterfly also about about five years ago. when Obama was president at the time actually I'm created a pollinator health task force and that really began the funding resources sources. That were needed to start the work And that funding went to many different organizations One of them was National Wildlife Federation. That then began again. The mayor's monarch pledge which basically has twenty four action items that a city or the mayor of a city can sign on to say that they will complete either all or part of those action items. So in two thousand fifteen Mayor Betsy Price signed on the city of Fort Worth to complete three and then just recently recently in two thousand nineteen. She signed on to be a champion city. So complete all twenty four action items so in terms arms of pollinators. I guess I feel like I don't hear as much about butterflies It seems like the bees get all the headlines headlines and the Beezer are endangered in there we got to like build a robot bees to figure out oh how to pollinate things so our entire agricultural system doesn't collapse and that's what you hear a lot about but we were talking yesterday and he said said something like was it. Ninety percent ninety percent in the past twenty years of monarch butterflies decline decline correct ninety eighty percent. So what kind of impact was that having on the environment some very big complicated question but if you can just kind of give people abroad odd explanation of why that matters for the listeners for the listeners doc terrified by the by the sounds of a ninety percent I mean we we all know pollinators are important but I think the big thing is if this drastic decline is happening to monarchs ARCS. I think it's more of an indicator about the environment in general is declining so I think rather than their decline impacting. I think it's just kind of an indicator that there's something bigger bigger go on so our monarchs historically a pretty robust species so this is that why the so unusual they really have been. I think it's been in the past twenty years. There's been a big change. And kind of agricultural Practices and such that has allowed allowed for loss of habitat and You know the use of pesticides herbicides. There are some interesting things about monarchs one is that they lay their eggs only on a milkweed plant and so in the Midwest is very important to have plenty of this milkweed plant as they're migrating which of course yes. We can talk a little bit more about their migration Because it's one of the fascinating things about the monarch butterfly but they only lay their eggs on the milkweed plant. Because is that is the only plant that the caterpillars will eat. So if there's no milkweed there's no food no nutrients for the Caterpillar. So that's a very important. In part of their their life cycle and the milkweed was going away yes yes so. Farmers were intentionally spraying their our crops to get rid of milkweed. They're viewed as a weed to a lot of agricultural businesses So a lot of our crops have actually been genetically designed to withstand a lot of these herbicides rides but the milkweed was not And then of course. All the fields where these farms are being built artifically fields where this milkweed was living. And so in having these crops being sprayed with herbicides lot of the milkweed was disappearing in that drastically impacted the population. And of course that goes along as well with their conditions in Mexico so one of the most amazing things about the monarch butterfly is the two-way migration. So you basically have these butterflies that spend the summer in the northern part of the United States or in Canada and then in the fall..

"Now. Let's take a look at today's playstation player impact rating and we're looking at dylan moses right now. He has a player impact rating of eighty four which is thirty eighth among inside linebackers. That's great and everything but the bad news for alabama is that he tore his a._c._l. On tuesday and so he's out for the season a freshman now has to take his role on in week one against duke and there's just injuries that abound there's two starting linebackers that are gone for alabama obama. I mean do we have concerns or filling those roles especially this late when you're so close to preparation out from a game and dylan moses goes down tough blow alabama as a team as for defense. They really relied on this young man to call the plays call the signals gary by an imperfect alignment lyon. Make sure they get the checks. He was pretty much the tour of the defense so that i can give you some perspective of how important dylan moses was to alabama's defense deepen so huge blow. They're already finished the position but this is a guy who was actually like a coach on the field. He's an alpha male. He's going to be sorely loss oss by alabama defense. David and it's important that you can't replace him first of all as a player because he's a top twenty draft pick in the n._f._l. Even with the knee but but you are what you said about the leadership because here's the thing you can play freshman right but you danger but i have somebody who knows the television. I play defense. I know we look like big dumb. Animals often formations ball get ball ball ball okay so when you're already counting on a freshman next to him and you had to make the calls and tell them listen all you gotta do this right but now the front has to be lined secondary there has to be in coordination and they'd take somebody that's played that position and been in those battles listen. They'll be converse duke and they're gonna be fine. I everyone on this is going to outscore. Almost everybody in the regular season but when you get to clemson and you get the georgia in the s._e._c. championship game this is when you're gonna look back and you're gonna go man. It'd be nice to have moses right now. Yeah shane lee. He's the new freshmen. That's got. Step up into that role and again. He doesn't know what to expect. It's birth by fire for him. <hes> but alabama's defense they already had to replace a five n._f._l. Draft picks which i know it's not the the alabama constantly like that's what you do but it's going to be a concern without dylan. Moses take a look at our fridays plate. Here are the notable games okay which one is intriguing to you to david about miss state. I would love to see at some point. I repeat right is there. An offense turns like is there. Is there any office to be found in michigan. State fans frustrated at some point. You've got to make changes and find something but you saw the work. You get dinged off off a year ago and it's rod receivers to slow this down. What is this offense looked like. I know the defense is going to be really good but can they get four passes yeah yeah they say that lewinsky. Let's is a good and camp. I did get bid seriously by the injury bug last season and i think they're out to approve. Their last season is just now who they are so watch what channel expires. I'm excited about this game today. But how about colorado state versus colorado in state rivalry you got you got mel tucker who came came over from georgia. He's a longtime assistant coach. The head coach of the colorado buffs.

They only had seven season ago floor intercept. That's good brand so mine belco. You've got to be feeling pretty good about that. Let's talk about the game that we are here for. That's oregon and auburn and take a look at our blimp worthy of player presented by goodyear. It's just an herbert obviously the q._b. He gave up the n._f._l. Draft this past year to return for senior the what the ducks do for twenty nine touchdowns last season but the completion percentage dip to fifty nine percent and he completed sixty percent of his throws two seasons ago <hes> justin herbert herbert. He's a veteran. We know what to expect almost from him. Can we expected against auburn. I think so i think the kid option of talent was a year ago. All the throws a similar to lawrence what i install last night. This kid just herber is is just to me secretly surprisingly athletic. You look at a gas six six years. He can really move but he gets out there on the perimeter. He's he's a long strider. He may run away from defenses so this. I can't wait to see him against an s._e._c. Defense on the road and it's not to me. It's not as important horton about the first group and we talk about that auburn defense. It's insane. Can he get the other guys involved case scramble around and run and get first downs and make it a tempo game that you're not going to let up and just pound auburn. It's not going to happen but if they can do stick. It moves outside later rounds. They'll have a chance to win. Justin herbert twenty-eight started thirty throwing sixty three touchdowns in his career and last year. They were second in the pac twelve in total offense so it's still going to be fun to watch him against auburn in week. One and that's the game. That's coming up saturday night from jerry okay so you can catch that game on a._b._c. An infant problem probably shade. David teleki me yeah. You'll be on the sidelines all right.

"Fort Worth, Texas. For the chance horned frogs to take on Ohio State. It'll be the first challenge for both of these squads, but we also have another big matchup in the state of Texas and unfortunately involved what of their rivals. Texas can become the third team at Bs history to reach nine hundred wins on Saturday, but they're eight hundred win with a special onto it came in two thousand six. That was the Rose Bowl longhorns. Oh, great. Now. James to ever watch. And it's fun to relive this USC Texas rivalry, but it's not quite the same. Both of these. Right? Trying to get trying to get off the ground right now. Who do you have bigger concerns for Texas or USC? Right now, personally have bigger concerns for the longhorns because it's like they got the coach that they really wanted to. Tom Herman guys attorney change the program around his office of genius. You know, a guy who gets guys motivating, he did, oh, house state, and he's fallen fled twice so far. I mean to gaze right out the gate against Maryland ways team looked at it perform up to par, so I will have some serious concerns with you. Go out there and get that one guy who you think it really be the same of your program is not panning out so far. I would have legitimate concerns about Texas, and I think it's fair to have both concerns about both. I mean, both of them I have concerns about, but the longhorns again, what are they not had we saw Vince young. It's about the last Lynch, young Cole McCoy last quarterback highlights you've seen. Twenty five years and Tom Herman's guy, offense, genius that should have had that figure it out and you watch him. And I'll be honest even last week, they put a super fear team up twenty one to nothing and still almost find a way to lose that game after losing the Maryland. Exactly. Texas is not any better than they've been the last several years. And if I'm a Texas fan, I would be very concerned about that. Coming off a seventeen three loss to Stanford that inference are good program though. At least. I mean, that's I guess three points three. What about got banged up a little bit true waiting Daniels, we'll be able to play in this matchup against Texas. What about Boise state? They take on Oklahoma state this week and they're just dropped like sixty points here. Fifty six points there and people are talking about them being a legitimate college football, playoff contender. They get a win against Oklahoma state. Are they building that resume that they would need to impress a selection committee? Well, yeah, they'd beat Oklahoma state than there will on their way because I think the rest of their schedules very favorite favorable when but you know one of those situations where you don't know how good they are because of the police that they've played so far, there's going to be a big test for a Boise state I'm like afford. I think it's going to be a high scoring ballgame. It's gonna be. It's gonna be a little physicality. I'm looking forward to this game quietly, sneaky. Really good games, interrupted. You know what the interesting part is. It really doesn't matter because as long as Boise wins other game, they can do a central crown themselves national champion. Yeah. Brother table. We've got y you at the end of the year, Utah state not a hard schedule right crown yourself national champion. So you go beautiful. They're not getting off guard this if they're undefeated. This isn't going to be enough regardless, but a chance to sell proclaim themselves national champions. I don't think that's what they want. Do it, but they can't do it.

Both of these teams are completely undefeated from everything that I hear guys. It's gonna come down to the trenches d. line ole line, and there's a lot of retooling on both sides for the offense. What are the expectations you have coming into this one David, but say, I agree with you in the size. Discrepancy is pretty big. I mean, you start looking at Ohio State offense of lying versus the defensive front, seven at TCU. It's about fifty pounds. Yes, sir. A lot of a lot of member of Gary Patterson. We've seen in years past the ability to trick defense or trick offenses, and keep them off balance and use their speed. I think that matchup will be fun too. Yes, the the Powerball house state versus the speed of TCU and I think that we talk about Gary Patterson. He's a really good coach. He's very good schemes and concepts. And you know, he understands what the strengths of this team is at this point, and he actually understands what the the big challenge they have tomorrow night. Don't forget. They play in the big twelve. They used to seeing, you know, dynamic offenses weekend and week out, but that way has boy real that good. About Gary cool about watching his practice. He's scripts everything. He calls the defensive plays himself out there running around like a madman coach and the whole time is very different than most head. Coach most has coaches are my offense. You got my defense come sit back and motivate. He is in there all the time sweat and we started. We saw up close and personal, yesterday's play. She hanging out. It was great Jeep. Up here and set was on. I've seen speed walking. Did he was walking exactly. He will be speed walking on the sidelines because he's got a scheme as you mentioned, Wayne Haskins who was done nothing but complete seventy nine percent of his passes so far, five hundred forty six yards. I mean the new starting quarterback pretty comfortable in this often lives extremely comfortable. He's very talented quarterback, obviously the office, they have a lot of weapons around him. So he's at a point now where he's not asked to do anything outside the bubble of outside his comfort zone. So to speak. He's Niger bared. He's a better passer, great arm talent. But like I say, did he get to fantastic running backs behind them? So he has all the little toys and gadgets that he needs to be successful. He's he's no, that got toys. He's got a great system special. He's he's, he's one of the best I've seen on tape this season and it's every it's the maturity he hadn't been tested yet. Let's be honest organs, say specialties s to see. But I'm gonna tell you what I've seen Haskins so far as good as anybody, the country. I mean, he, he's, he's a shortstop. He's got like a little flick released. It will go sick and go nine feet off the ground. I mean he he has a special special talent. I, I wanna see what they got form because it's gonna be hard to slow him down. He's been fun to talk to throughout the week. He trained with DeShaun Watson.

But you're there and you know, sometimes you can. Sometimes you can't read the tea leaves, but if we hear you correctly, the wind seems to be blowing firmly in urban Meyer's favor that fair. I think I said on your show last time I was on, I know, said a bunch of times if if you took urban Myers statement at its word and believed it means the one, the the long statement he issued on August, third, and in what you what you understood about. You know, like I said, the whole mechanics of the thing, for example, or the issues thing. For example, zek Smith was never arrested or charged in two thousand fifteen incident. Those are just examples. Then it kinda makes you wonder why urban Meyer was on paid administrative leave in the first place. Clearly the university had some questions they wanted answered, but this has been a very thorough. I understand. I wrote a story about that in today's paper at dispatched dot com. Where basically, you know these, these, the guys who interviewed the witnesses that were brought forth. We're extremely thorough, extremely prepared. For example, there was a report, you know, as you well know last Friday of about some of Zach Smith Ciccio. While trying to figure out a way Murray report about sex toys, take care of himself. Put the most important thing and has served was the the revelation..

"I know that there are a lot of reasons why you do certain things, but was that the desired results you were looking for? Yeah, it was. I, you know, I think obviously in recruiting, there's always a lot of competition and in schools may try to poke holes where they can. I think if you look at it, though, coach Sabin is is sixty six, probably going on fifty from an energy standpoint, and we know that he's going to be coaching for a long time going forward. And that's that's exciting for our program what he's already done and then what we intend to do in the future as well. And and you know, one of these we've talked about, we have incredible history here at the university of Alabama that were so respectful of in fact, I just meet with Bart star for came on here. I actually, I think you'll understand that. I forgot that I was coming on your show up, so excited to get him. You know, that's that's one of a kind. Yeah, but, but at the same time to we're under historical times today, and we don't need to take that for granted and we need to continue to move the program forward. You know some some great organizations out there, whatever it may be an, you know, one of the things that are critical for continued success is obviously honor the past be very focused on today, but then create vision for the future about where you're going, and that's what we're trying to do right now before you go there, there's so much conversation about scheduling right now and Alabama's at the vanguard of all the playing. So many important preseason games or or opening weekend games. I know some have been announced, but but I would be interested as the audience would. I'm sure in your philosophy toward that and we'll we see any altering of this in the future toward more home in home. Well, yeah, we were pleased in the last year to announce to home and homes, one with Notre Dame and one with Texas. We've had a number of conversation. Nations with other schools about other potential home homes, the neutral games have worked well for us in our program is far as being able to put us in a position to get to the college football playoff and compete for a national championship. So we don't want to walk away from that completely. But I think with what people saw in the last week with some of our future plans for Bryant, Denny stadium. And if we're able to pull it all together from the fundraising perspective and and get the get the approvals we need. I think it's something that having some home at home games that really draw the attention of the college football world on top of that, that ones that are fans will be excited about. That's good for the health of the game. I know coach has been very outspoken on the his desire for us to play other power, five or Tommy five programs. I think that's good for the game of college football. Now we, we're not going to do anything disadvantage ourselves from ability to to compete to get to the p. But at the same time to, we need to take steps and and make sure we're doing. Things to keep the game healthy for many more years to come. And those are some of the things we're doing right now. Greg Byrne on the renovation plan at Alabama. I have a feeling nothing you. You have much free time, but you'll have even less in the coming years. Yeah, it'll keep us busy everybody on our staff, very busy, but we got a group of people here, Greg, great to talk. You ran into a couple of weeks ago to airport somewhere, and I hope to see you when we come to Tuscaloosa in the near future. Hey, thanks so much. Paul roll tide. You got Greg Byrne always great to have him with us. Just one of the truly bright and innovative athlete directors in this country listening to Paul finebaum show podcast. The urban Meyer story broke nearly three weeks ago and it was determined couple days into it that they would have some sort of determination, two weeks in two weeks ended on Sunday. This six person committee, including three trustees has handed over its report. Where where they interviewed a number of the not a number, all the key participants to the board of trustees and the president that meeting is tomorrow, and we're delighted to be joined by the very distinguished writer from Columbus..

"Greg Byrne will join us here in a couple of minutes with about hundreds of millions of dollars in reservoir in not reservations renovations at the university of Alabama. This decision came, it's been working for a long time, Greg, and his team announced it the other day, and there is put the hard hat on and took it off and join us, Greg, thanks so much for being with us so much going on right now with the college football season upon. Us, but, but I do want to welcome you learn by asking about this announcement and get some backstory as we say, good afternoon. Good afternoon, Paul. Thanks for having me on. Yeah, we was exciting day for us last week. We announced their crimson standard initiative that we've been working on for the last year plus with the a lot of input from our our fan base or student athletes, or coaches or staff and put it all together and announce what our tenure vision is for Alabama Affleck's university of Alabama's. We as we put our priorities together for what the future looks like, and and there's a lot that went into it and we're very pleased with where we are with it and what, but we got a lot of work ahead of us over the next ten years. Let's start with the stadium piece and then we'll get to Coleman Coliseum. If I understand correctly, I, I read watched a lot of it. Seats are coming out of Bryant, any stadium? Yeah, a little bit. We don't know what the net is going to be, but it's not gonna be significant, but one of the things we've struggled with an actually, I think people in college football across the. Country sports in general, sometimes is getting people to stay the entire game, getting him to stay in the upper upper deck seats. And so what we've done is a area where students are which we, we sell out our student allotment or students give us great support, but we decided to actually kind of take a different approach. One of the things we did, we toured a lot of college stadiums, even went to Lambeau Field in Green Bay. They took one of their tougher areas lambo field and created a platform debt club area. And we thought, what if we do that same thing for a student body and so our what we have plan right now is to take out part of the south upper deck, create a student terrorists Wiltshire will become much more of a social area for students to to watch the game, enjoy the game, and then we're going to put a new video board that will we have a great impact on our on our game day experience for our fans throughout the stadium and combine the two together and have it be kind of a new approach than what's been the college game previously talking to Greg Byrne. This is quite an undertaking, especially while college football is played. So how do you manage the the renovations with football season? Well, we'll have to do it. We won't be able to do it in the middle of the season phase. We, we announced three different phases phase one, we hope we can do the majority of it in one off season. We don't know that for sure yet we're working on those details. What we thought we'd do. I kinda give the big picture of what we're looking at and and as time goes on, we'll we'll work out all those details. But phase one's going to have a heck of an impact on on our fan base. We're gonna offer some new premium.

"You look at ESPN dot com coach's hotseat rankings, and there's that name CBS sports the same thing. There's that the power rankings LSU's in the middle of the pack if has LSU's over under at seven wins. I mean, it's it's hard to ignore all of that. So I if that's where the season settles, then it's going to be very interesting what the leadership of the department and the university is a whole elect to do if they stay the course, if they decide to make a change. Now I feel all of that is premature right now because like let's see if they go out a week from Sunday and they'd beat top ten Miami. A lot of this noise gets flushed man, but they lose to Miami in two weeks later, they lose to Auburn and you're a two loss before you get talk Tober. And if you want to tell us you over schedule and then what's coming in November with Alabama could heating. There's no doubt in in by the way we, we've been talking about this for a long time. You talk about it more than we do Matt, but at this point, is there anything left to be said, is it or is it just a matter of trying to get this win in a number of days? I look, I. I think what happens between now and the opener relative to all of these this off the field, I hate to keep referring to it as noise because we're talking about legitimate charges. Paul Tyler Taylor, the linebacker. I mean, he's charged with with with two felonies. He's accused of driving getaway car at a at a at a upon shop burglary where they stole weapons. I mean, that's like you're talking about if this kid is convicted, you're talking about life altering ramifications. I'm not an anyway trying to make light of that, but you, you try to contextualize things. Okay, that's what's happening here. But if you're just talking about a football conversation like that, Miami game, so big because I don't think they're winning off or not. I don't. I don't know how this team is young as they are inexperienced their offense is going on the road at your hair, winning that game. So if they can beat my. Emme and had that notch in the Bill earlier it. It comes so much of the noise and at least makes you feel like, okay, this team has potential to play with the big boys on schedule. So I'm I am firmly focused from football standpoint, say, look, September second, Arlington, LSU's going to have a massive crowd advantage over Miami. They got a really good defense mellitus years, been inconsistent as a quarterback. If all of those things fall LSU's way, they win that game. Then then the narrative around this program starts to change this year. But if you lose that game, that's where I think you really start to get into some some dangerous territory before you could get October. And let's assume that that happens. What are the most serious questions that you think you you others? Fans will be raising. I mean, Paul, you can't go any. I mean, when I was there and Atlanta with with you immediately as everyone was asking about about Joe alita, the director and how he had who were aligned. And I look when Joe's not dumb. He knows when he hired owes Ron. He knew his legacy is tied tiring at ocean. So that's, that's the question I got asked that at sea media days and every interview I did, and that's what every LSU fan wants to know. And I think gasoline got poured on that fire little bit. Paul when the new board of supervisors had their meeting in June and they, they did not rubber-stamp. One of the contracts at LSU tried to push for the women's basketball coach, and they also did not extend Joe leaves deal. So in a sense to kinda lame duck AD and it's it feels very much like everyone who is in a position of of making. They're waiting to see what happens with this football season because it it's, it's very. Obvious if things don't go, well, people in charge or prepared to make changes what those are. If it's if it's an ethnic richer, if it's the coach, if it's corners, I, I don't know. I could speculate like anybody else could, but it's it's hard to, nor those very tangible signs that are everywhere around this program right now. Men..

"From ESPN we recently discussed the all American team. He wrote the story, David, thanks for the time. Always good to have you on and everything going. Can't complain. Hang out at lake forest practice today. So you know, feel like I'm getting the the football juices flowing, and of course, good. All America debate is always a good way to give season going in the right direction. Okay. So we had a little bit of a conversation here minute ago about the first of all. I don't know how this team was compiled, so let's start with their before we start firing questions at you on why certain people made it didn't make. So I went through and kind of made up a list of, you know, five or six guys at every position that I thought were warranted conversation, put together a little survey Senate out to pretty much every poll the PIN writers to get feedback. And for most of them, I took the, you know, whoever got the most votes is the one that I went went. I figured that was a democratic way of doing it. They were a couple of spots where the votes were very close tied, and I said, well, all right, I'll I'll be the the alternate arbiter here and and and went ahead and pick on. But you know, for the most part, there was it was not easy choices, a ton of positions, you know, especially if you look at like the defensive Ed and physician defensive tackle running back. I mean, it's it's hard kind of when you start having to draw some lines there between guys who are the candidates deserve to be in the conversation. And it's funny afterwards because you put a lift out like that. Everybody says, how could you leave this guy? And I'm like, all right. He's good. I supposed to be getting rid of to put him on the list, not let's let's forget all the other ones. Let's talk about quarterback was ma- John Hayes literally came out of his chairman and ago with the the inclusion of will Greer. Well, so I think it's a little Greer. It was a little bit to things that one I think is numbers last year where really good if you, especially if you figure if he played the full season because he missed affectively the last three games of the year extrapolated his numbers out to a full season. He's putting up yardage and touchdown numbers that look like Baker mayfield's stat line last year. And the second thing is he plays an offense where he is going to put up numbers this year to a little bit of it.

"I wanna talk to you about eight upcoming football season in urban Meyer. Okay. Paul, I know you've been telling me a lot than ain't is go eight and four this year. I, I agree with you on that that their when their first game and they're probably go eight and four. But Paul, I wanna be a gambler this, your MB revolt gambler. I think in playing Cal field to six thirty game at night. I think they have a good shot at beating Clemson. 'cause what I've been hearing at a local news station e phen- that this team skinny, better logistics, you're in the quarterback TV, listen, I feel like we're good friends and friends. French help. Other friends. I agree that I just, I mean, have you taken a good look at clemson's defense give you gotta. Fuck your started. Doing team coming back. I'm not gonna remember anything sometimes. Ask questions. Yeah, I just I just don't want you to be led down the no. Here. I try to be optimistic about my team said it'd being one of those. Dan is always negative mess. I am a big fan of what JIMBO and AM do. We're going to be out there next week. I just don't want you to. I just need more to tell me something. I don't know for Serena, believe Glenn. I just don't think you can be Clemson. Saying can't beat Arkansas. I'm talking to tell you, you don't know about Clinton and impo winter last time they played each other within two thousand four, eight Embi Clemson twenty seven to six last time. They point him my history on measures, Greg, I'm a history and you know something. I love about history. Yes, in two thousand and four. Let's talk about two thousand four for a second. Okay. Okay. George W Bush was the president. That he was from Texas. Right. Hey, what is he still from the president? No, he's not. He's four hundred do today. You know who the coach wasn't two thousand and four. Very good. I might ask you a question, tell me you said. Until you, you don't. Nobody why? I don't know, but I wanted to be respectful, man, I tell you what I don't want to argue because you're you just moved and you've gone through a traumatic experience, which must be one reason why you think AM is going to be Clemson. Mark, thanks for the call by the way, Mark is in Massachusetts, Mark. Thanks for the call. Good afternoon. How're you doing? Excellent. Well, you know, I remember Mafra saying Tonio from a few call a few shows ago and I recommend it you that she takes classes at university of Texas, San Antonio. Well, now he's moved to Fort Worth to maybe Texas Christian universities in the area. You know, there's some phenomenal philosophy professors I once again, I can teach him, you know, I'll find a professor for him to learn realism and all you know those subjects. You know both of us, you know, we understand that Texas in heme is not gonna be, you know, competing for national championship this year. And I think everybody knows that including mad. I, I don't really know what's going through his mind right now, but I want to ask you through his mind Mark. He's a fan and this is the time of the year that fans just believe anything is possible, which is great by the way, unless you're playing Alabama or Clemson. Well, you know, I don't know if you've already, but. Are you planning on going to Chicago for the Michigan? Langan's. No, you're not good because you know bar school president, El presidente we'll be there. So I didn't want you to get, you know. We're, we're is that thought that game was in southbound in south bend, oh, we'll presence going to Chicago, so I don't know why he won't be there, but. I'm probably going to be in the air while that game is going on flying more toward where you live than Chicago Bristol. Yes, I well, you know, I just want to make sure you aren't gonna be, you know, in in conflict with barstool sports. Are you now? Are you now like representing them Mark? I, if they wanted me to represent them, I would totally do that..
