He'll be consuming in his mind in matter about team unity and will the crimson tide habit this year. I think offensively blake were were good. We got more guys that have more experience and the only position that we don't have a lot of experience as really tight end and you know every other position as you point to. There's guys that have a significant amount of playing time whether they were started or not and <hes> we have a little bit more aged a little bit more maturity defense. We've got a lot more younger guys that have to have to grow up. Learn how to play and you know understand and that we have ten guys do what they're supposed to do. One doesn't the other team makes play. They'll try to make a play considering. You're playing duke in the opening game. Speaking it opening games. They advocate down in baton rouge headline today. A season draws nearly she left with comparatively few questions to answer that is that's a switch compared to where we were a year ago and no one knew which end was up up with that <hes>. Everybody knows this is going to be very good. We'll find out week to how good when they take on sexual. They start the season. The number six at looks like familiar spot is a._p. Broadcasters and writers poll is out clip son. I'm going for its third. National championship. In four years starts off number. One alabama always better from the number two or three position. If you wanna check back on history was the last time you had to s._e._c. Schools in the top three georgia number three. Oh you four ohio state five l._s._u. Looks pretty similar to last asher by the way l._s._u.'s six michigan florida notre dame and texas. I five is almost identical to where it was at at the end of last year. Oregon is eleven. That's auburn's team in the first game a._m. And number ten washington thirteen utah penn state all burn at number sixteen ecksteen u._c._f. Seven teen michigan state wisconsin iowa round off the top tournament twenty-one is iowa state syracuse use by clem son and week three wash state nebraska and stanford so so <hes> i mean the people looked exactly like <hes> when the season ended. I think it's a verbatim the way it looks thin and it's exactly how most people thought now you you can start wondering l._s._u. Pretty high but we knew that was coming florida's the school. I think a lot of people are interested in are they deserving of top ten ranking they would probably we get one anyway with a win saturday night against the u <hes> but many of wondered including people like pat dailey covers the team if they are were the to start the season in that position big big show on tap for the first monday of week zero mad baker fear florida fan. You know the name mm-hmm pure florida fan. You need to listen andy staples with the athletic. He'll join us in ninety minutes. Lane higgins wrote an interesting piece the wall street journal about nick sabin and losing assistance and sky rabbe on the tigers but first your phone calls here and the numbers still the same as it was last week eight five five two four to seven to eight five eight five. I five to four to seven to guide you with us. Let's get going and karen starts us off in florida. Hello care. You know what i've been gone so long. I forgot push the button. Hey how are you karen. We're doing great good. Would i called in to four. It's been a little while but <hes> i don't know if you remember me but i like you do a good <hes> but anyway i'm i'm very excited gator fan but even bigger than that <hes> <hes> very excited college football fan <hes> i advocate college football to all all the people i used to live up north in maryland and they still watch the n._f._l. And in my opinion that's become somewhat of a joke but <hes> college football. I've got got it on my calendar and today's day number six i believe before we play on saturday which starts the whole thing off <hes> but i also heard you <hes> <hes> speaking about the top ten and you kind of describing is a little bit and saying that the gators and twitter are kinds of one. Everybody's looking looking at wondering if we're real or not and that's part of <hes> you know the the intrigued with college football is let's see where your land. Let's talk about it. Let's compare and then ultimately everybody comes out basically with realistic point of view the other day are teams and say realistic point of view to emphasize that <hes> i've heard some callers from unfortunate florida gator fans that <hes> do not represent <hes> gator nation in any shape or form. I think there was a guy. I don't even remember name gain. Don't particularly want to remember his name but <hes> he called in. Maybe a month ago and he was just off the hook <hes>. Do you remember who it yeah yeah. Okay thanks for the call. Listen that that is <hes>. That's where college football fans are and they're all a little bit different but i do appreciate your call very much. Thank thank you. I know probably go gators. Thank you guys. You got to help me so this first segment the phone system. Here is in the wrong long mode and i don't want to change the mode while we are on the air but <hes> let's go to mike in south carolina. How am i go right ahead. How you doing paul i just wanna know if you ever gonna make some t shirts with the fall finebaum show on it that we can pick up you know we are. We're not really a well. I mean i worked for a public company but we're not really in a mode. Where we we do that kind of thing but it's if somebody would like to do that. I'm sure it would be a pretty <hes> pretty good <hes> venture but i personally don't have anything to do with it. Though and i also saw jason hurts was named oklahoma's quarterback. I was just wondering what kind of chance he's got. A women heisman again saw aw boy and clemson or right boy in alabama. Well thank you very much. Mike really nice of you to call another. Mike this one's in atlanta and you're on the air go right ahead. Hey paul good afternoon. Thank you very much. I had a culpable fantasy draft last night. I i ended a two quarterback league where i took fellow bond out of the n._f._l. I took oklahoma state's quarterback. Quarterback stevens and <hes> also stevens as well adams to the states. I got a couple quarterback. Cam controversies controversy going on in oklahoma state mississippi state. What can you tell me about them. I'll have to defer to someone else on oklahoma state. I have not followed at all in the off season but <hes> mississippi state. I think tommy stevens is gonna be the victor there and <hes>. I think you've got a good one. I mean he's he's a transfer from penn state. Were previously with with joe moorhead. Thanks for the call dine in arkansas. You're on the air. Go right ahead. Hey paul. Thanks for taking my call again actually listen i it was. It was kind of interesting that last year l._s._u. Played miami was ready to extremely high and they were overrated and i think the same thing this year as they go to texas. I really think texas is overrated team. I really think l._s._u.'s gotta go in there and probably mop him up. I think the score it'll be something like forty five to seventeen. I was wondering what you thought yeah. I'm i'm in total agreement with you. In terms of texas being overrated texas is one of those schools rules that as soon as they get a big victory <hes> they get inflated or over over over rated <hes> and i think that's really where they are right now i think i think l._s._u.'s a legitimate top five team and i think they're going to prove that very quickly especially the second weekend good to have you on thank you. We're rolling through some calls all here as we get ready for saturday. Hunt is up next in florida. Go right ahead. All we are doing fantastic hottest. I just wondering what you thought <hes> seasons sleeping franks land. I mean he's got so many good skill position guys. I think i mean you can have chance for a really great year. Don't on year. I think he has the opportunity to yes. I he's been inconsistent. We all know that we all know what happened late last season when dan dan mullen had run out of patience but i think a good start would be essential for sleeping. I i like him as a quarterback which is upside to be determined. We'll take all right more to come eight. Five five two four seven to five a number of guests will head down to florida and a couple of minutes and and get a closer look at this program which has been <hes> <hes> promoted and propped up quite a bit and baker will join us and he's got some interesting views are the underbelly of some of the things that have gone wrong down there stick around. We're here for the next four hours. You're listening to paul finebaum. Show podcast matt where you got all talk. You buy tickets in football in you. You think you have a close game like it did last year. Cal was clemson. Keep at least close <hes> i. I'm not ready to make a call on my game yet. Well i got one thing to say missy. Stay fans. They keep on saying. They're gonna beat us. It will keep on a mistake fans aren't they. Guys is hold on w. l. When you come to build this year and you don't you don't want <hes>. Let me ask you a question here. You don't like mississippi say how if if you are directing your top five schools that you dislike the most who would they be. It'll be alabama knee one florida state eight mississippi oklahoma and then michigan noga any rhyme or reason for that five. I'm ben simmons streaming arrogant but ever right birthdays really arrogant even more michigan every time they play. They always choke never won a title since a while oklahoma. Did this like really arrogant and i don't really like them because the bay tall is a joke of elite when it comes to defensive play and to say the last one they didn't want air again. You definitely have thing for arrogance. Matt glad you called. Thank you very very much. You're a great guy <hes> william his in georgia. I don't wanna matter me. <hes> william go right ahead part question. I appreciate you taking my call and thank shot up all the guys in the background doing all the hard work <hes> what will it take work jake from to get rid of the game manager title well. I think winning title would certainly eliminate that and i don't think there's anything wrong with that. What's wrong with being gay manager. Nothing wrong with it is he's. He's a great quarterback. He's better than mccarron better than <hes> miguel. Really i believe and then my second part question question. What are your thoughts on moving the game. They can't take the name of it but it's in jacksonville georgia florida game worlds largest outdoor cocktail party yes sir. I'm going to start here. I think it's ridiculous not to say always gonna be the cocktail parties me yeah. I mean wh why do we. He plays games. <hes> about college. Football people go to games. I mean not now now the s._e._c. schools are selling beer. We're going to act like you you. You don't go to games and drink. I mean come on. Let's let's be. Let's be adults here. Okay definitely pre-game job. Yeah thanks very much. Jesse is in colorado. You're on the air. Go right ahead. Hey paul. How're you doing today doing well. Thank you just want to say first and foremost the best that telling it like it is thank you and then <hes> my first question is i hear a lot of critics talking about florida's offenses lan and i just wanted to know what you might have thought about mindedness. The second question was how do you think they don't fare this year. I am pretty <hes> beat on. Both i think <hes> <hes> <hes> i mean i'm going to defer baker here in a minute. He covers the team. He's he's around practice every day. I'm not but but i i mean i hear good things about the gators. <hes> there are some of those who are worried worried about the gators and we're we're going to discuss that in a couple of minutes for a top ten team <hes> if you had to say which which top ten team you have the most question marks about it would probably be the gators. Thank you for the call do appreciate dwight and augusta. You're next go right ahead. They pull thanks for taking my call. Thank you you. Hey <hes> just real. Quick fall the game saturday between mind in florida you know i think that's probably got a little more indepth in miami but it's going to be a really emotional game especially being in the spotlight seven p._m. <hes> saturday night so there's gonna be a hard game and they've had picked probably or what dep probably up winning yeah listen to their favourite <hes> they're more than about a touchdown favorites rising to those are all <hes> givens and it seems seems to me based on everything you here because you know picking a first game is tough. You don't you don't know the intangibles. Its largest should be a better team. I mean i can't i can't believe miami has has been transformed that quickly to to a really good program they weren't they weren't last year. They have a different coach though and i think that's <hes> that's worth mentioning mentioning jody. It's worth considering. I should say jodi is up next in spartanburg go right ahead paul meter taser. I am doing great. Thank you paul on. I had a chance yesterday and i finally got through. I wanted to call on your a bit then a bursary but your phone lines were so busy i just want to thank you for the wonderful show that you put on each and every day and the hard work they sure associates put on and i just wanted to let you know your your initials. The good the program perfectly perfect paul found santana that is so nice say jodi <hes> we we all appreciate it and i'm. I'm glad you mentioned the crew yeah self explanatory. I sit out here and the name his right his right by me. I mean you can't dan sit here and say but i mean i'm stating the obvious. Every show has to have a name but there are a lot of people <hes> that when we go to the booth listen show danny and mark <hes> there are a lot of people behind those two who do tremendously hard work they get here early and they leave late eight and they do all the little things that make <hes> the rest of us look a lot better than we probably deserve yesterday and by the way i'm tom on tom. He did a wonderful job. The past couple of days that i was i was out in california last week and i kept getting texts from people <hes> telling me how great he was so we really really appreciate. Tom is never done the show from that position before because because he's pretty busy does baseball basketball and football play by play so there's never really an opportunity but i really appreciate him coming in here and doing that you can also you know <hes> you know before you cut me all. Let me also add the associates <hes> behind the scenes. God bless list or harsh. I mean so knowledgeable so friendly <hes>. I appreciate them too as well. Well thank you. I'm glad to hear that jodi 'cause i mean there are a few people out there. Air who who just want to hate on this show and just want to tear down in rights girlish things and and listen that's fine i mean after a while it gets repetitive but but <hes> it's nice to hear someone objectively describe all the things that go on and we we talked a little bit about that on the fifth anniversary last wednesday but <hes> probably we don't do it enough. Thanks for the call. We are heading to a break couple of guests. <hes> we'll start slotting in here and your phone calls as well as we remove on on on this monday afternoon. Matt baker covers the gators. You'll hear a lot about the gators this week. You're listening to the paul. Finebaum finebaum show podcast. We are back. <hes> gators play saturday. We'll all be down there this weekend for that game as we'll matt baker from the tamp but they always great to talk to stories i wanna talk about <hes> and they and they and they connect first of all the one we just mentioned about george's oranges impact and influence on what florida is doing in recruiting <hes>. Take us through your reporting on that story as we say good afternoon. Hey guys hey paul. Thanks for having me on yeah georgia. You know they've gotten to be one of the top programs in the country for a bunch of reasons. I really comes down to think kirby smart smart recruiting at such an insane level and one aspect of that is the state of georgia from my high school perspective in that players that they're getting putting now is so much better than it's been in the past. I mean the number of d. one recruits over there it s kind of you know. It was more than double the last ten fifteen years to me. It comes down to it's you get what you pay for. Georgia has the state of georgia with its high school. Program is putting a ton of money into it with indoor facilities and according to i users forty forty four <hes> high school coaches in the state of georgia who make six figures. I would venture to say i've been down in florida long enough. There's only i mean probably not no certainly no a public. Maybe a couple of private schools are inching up there. <hes> you know throw county where i live a high school coach mick somewhere around thirty eight hundred dollars a year for a stipend which is about a tenth of what the coach inside isn't some places at georgia so that's really kind of feeding into things because he we're georgia is the landscape that they have the bulldogs have a lot more bertel recruiting ground than they used to and that's helping the bulldogs at eddie bigger level and it's coming at the expense of florida in terms of high school and also widening the gap between the dogs and the gators. There's so we go to face to of this two story conversation matt. I remember on signing day. A in february. A lot of people were promoting praising. Dan big time recruiting class top ten best recruiting class in a wild looks like a couple of late changes so i think it finished in the top ten. We all said what we did. You've gone back and and looked at that class again. After a number of players have left <hes> take us through were they were then versus two day. Yeah you actually had me on call and i remember driving through tallahassee talking to you about how strong gators close to get a top ten number nine recruiting class from the country. You know they got some guy <hes> ulan who's gonna play a good amount in this year <hes> vogel down in south florida so it to me the question i had going in was can dan mullen recruit at an elite level and and in february i think the answer seemed like if he's not there he's he's he's getting closer but they have since lost five members of the twenty nineteen signing class last for one reason or another jalen jones with accused of sexual battery transferred. What's the program cristiano less soon after that <hes> now he's at u._s._c. They've lost three players from that recruiting class dude academic reasons for one thing or another so now you take those guys out in the knicks. The signing class now would be somewhere in the neighborhood. What if like seventeenth in the country which would be florida's second worst finish of the rivals era other programs have las vegas to sort of courses done well with a transfer portal here lately <hes> hi john and granada. It's gonna be a really key player for them. That <hes> defensive into louisville transfer just got bring cox recently from georgia so they made up for it in some other ways but still all every class that looked like it was top ten is now probably somewhere outside the top fifteen meanwhile just like we talked about the guys up in athens or recruiting at an insane unlevel top three top four every single year that gap is just growing and growing and i don't know whether molin is in good enough xs and os coach in developmental coach to be able to make up for a lot of different reasons for the attrition but are you. Are you sensing anything. Are you seeing anything. Are you hearing anything or are most of these isolated incidents. Yeah everything is kind of different but i think one of the themes here here is your guys. Don't qualify academically or have some sort of academic issues then either. You took chances that maybe you shouldn't have or things. It just didn't work out and i i tend to believe that when when something like that things didn't you know they they they were decisions made in terms of who they were going to go after that just didn't pan out i mean i think that's something that is coaching. Staff really needs to look at going forward. <hes> you know you can get away with some of that. When you're at mississippi state some guy goes. Do you call maybe at mississippi. Juku comes along you can get him in in a year or two or three but at florida. It's a lot tougher because again. There's this an opportunity costs here. From the economic standpoint i mean they invested this time and the resources into recruiting those guys who are now never going to make an impact on the roster that's guy. They signed those guys instead of other guys that they could. I've been recruiting and going after and dan mullins calling card over his years when he was mississippi state is he wasn't in a sign the superstar classes but when he got them to campus he was going to develop and then coach them to get the net to play at a high level and now a fifth of his first full recruiting class. It's gone before we ever had the chance to do so as we look ahead this weekend. What's your sense of. The state of the florida program is progressing on a good path or or do you send something else. You know it's so weird because as in in january the peaceful this firm was such a high and it's the best in a in a while a lot optimism certainly trouncing michigan in atlanta with a good thing top ten finish all that stuff but since then the offseason has just there's there's no other way to say. It hasn't been very good. Who's been all sorts of off. The field headlines one thing after another. It seems like obviously what we've been talking about with recruiting. Who's inside guys. That's from that is not good so i think the best for florida is that on saturday. There's actually going to be a football game with like throwing a piece of leather around trying to catch it and block and tackle so we have other things to talk about and they have other things to talk about in chance to kind of show how they broke because i think this is absolutely a top ten caliber team in my mind no flu franks if he continues to grow the way he did last year can be very very effective quarterback. I they've got their best skilled. Guys probably the tibo era pretty darn good defense and really okay good defensive back within secondary but a lot down there so this is a top ten caliber team. They just need to games to finally start paul mad. It seems like florida's in a really good position a second year of molin everything that needs to be said but it <hes> what would the state of the fans be and the program be if somehow this game goes sideways well obviously they wouldn't be very happy <hes>. I haven't given that a whole lot of thought and here's why i i've seen been around miami a little bit. I was at their spring game. I think thanks florida's decisively better than miami. I mean i left those games thinking florida. I send my head florida by ten. No i think maybe isn't quite right like that but i just have a lot of questions about the canes i mean florida's offensive line then major question mark because it was for the five starters but miami's offense online going to be worse <hes> my miami's defense is going to be certainly quite strong but i think they'd be up to that though i haven't given that entertain that a whole lot my mind is because i don't see a major pass for the canes to win. Especially considering it's jared williams first career start at quarterback mccain in a crusher packed blue heavy environment there in orlando yeah. No i agree with you on. That matter. Just doesn't <hes>. I haven't seen anything for miami. <hes> they made a big deal about <hes> the quarterback selection the other day and i don't think it was really that big a deal. I don't think they really had a great quarterback but <hes> it was just worth thinking about because because of some of the things you've already said the the difficult to the off season of course. Would you agree that a win and that long break before we see the gators again especially since before we see them in a significant game <hes> <hes> the optimism will will rise pretty high and the and the and the expectations even higher. Oh yeah absolutely i mean this is a fan base that it's been really starving for some sort of success here lately jim mcelwain era. Obviously they went to the one that used to times in a row but it didn't feel for the fan base like they were back. You know <hes> do the offense with some great. They weren't winning the way they want it it. It didn't feel right for the fan base so i think they've really rallied around moland on because you know he he kosher under urban. He knows what it's like kind of the gator to them so for them to to win. It would definitely be like hey we're back. Things are going the right way and i suppose if they were to lose weight to be really interesting to see how or if things start to turn thanks for joining us. We'll see this weekend matt. Thank you very much for coming on you. Gotta beggar the impact that georgia's superb recruiting is having on everyone including the gators but he still likes the gators reasonably big this weekend in orlando anymore takes on that game as we continue here on a monday afternoon. You're listening to the paul finebaum show podcast. You are with us. Oh let's get to some calls and mad is up now. Excuse me mark orcas up next in south carolina. Hey mark. Hey paul how you doing. We're doing great. Thank you last good. That's good listen. I just wanna call <hes>. I tell you what you think about peace or leaving clemson and was that a good move and <hes> him going to south carolina. Do you think he makes an impact back down there at south carolina. Yeah everything that i know about him have been told about him is he's a he's an impactful player. He was just on a roster where you gotta heisman candidate ahead of you right yeah. I don't know i mean to me players. Wanna play lash it last shot. Go you go somewhere that you could make an impact in south carolina could have a really good year all they have to do is turn one one or two games and they go from really not being considered for anything to being considered for everything so that that's that's what i think he's thinking about. What else can you do. I'm not i'm not minimizing undermining national championships but he's already been part of two right. Well you know clinton plans. Don't like him going to south carolina <hes> <hes> robbery to they happy about that listen to the if he asked me i may have found somewhere better go than <hes> and i mean by that is not someplace better than south carolina someplace where you wouldn't <hes> just live a torch in burn down everything you've already accomplished. <hes> had he gone onto michigan. I don't think anybody would be mad but but going going to the other part of the state is certainly a toxic move on his his part well. I hope the clinton players tweeted out to them at least in good luck even though he left so i thought that said a lot of them listen. They did the same thing with kelly bryant <hes> they got. They got so much talent. There that i think goes like jalen hurts. Nobody wishes from alabama wishes him. Ill will uh <hes>. I mean georgia. Maybe a little more concerned about where justice fields is up to but anyway good call. Thanks for the question. Richard is in in georgia richard. Go right ahead hi paul. This is richard columbus talking to your <hes> thank you. I got a couple of things. I like to start off by saying you know depot swing. He's done a great the job with clinton you know a couple of championships but as a whole i need you to settle a dispute at the firehouse. Those got tougher conference the a._c._c. or the s._e._c. utah at among fire fire personnel at the firehouse. You got an argument argument went on. We got some a._c._c. fans here in some s._e._c. Fancy been arguing about who has the term listen. I have great respect for <hes> for people that work <hes> the fire shift and i don't want to be unkind to them because they may be savings my life the next week but i are. Are you an s._e._c. Guy s._e._c. for yesterday well you you go. Tell your your friends from the a._c._c. They got nothing on you. Man are you.

Florida georgia. I mean come on. I mean these guys is <hes> he's. He's guys need to be careful coming down the fire pole if they think the a._c._c. is a better conference. We're tougher. That's what marjam that's been the whole time even our teams in its that aren't doing so great to say. L._s._u.'s had tobruk lately but i feel like some of them teams from the a._c._c. Come up here and even played somebody weekdays at s._e._c. We would hurt him so bad that they wouldn't be able to folks in the next week. No i mean if you let's let's take l._s._u. You mentioned them. What would they do come in alabama alabama georgia there were i guess the third the third best team in the s._e._c. Last year. Maybe four florida and l._s._u. Were probably third and fourth. I mean they they would be. They would easily be number two in the a._c._c. easily. That's what i do find. I mean even south carolina airline. Everybody wants to dump on them. I mean they might be the second or third best team in the a._c._c. Willpower you just to settle to the speed has been going on here. Awesome wait little football with kicked also new columbus georgia yes sir. I'm gonna say this regret it but i thought they hired mortar fire personnel in columbus georgia in that well. We showed him for thank you very much. That's a tough job and maybe maybe they just weren't some. Some of those guys weren't thinking clearly but i want i want. I want the guy driving the fire truck to be thinking. I don't want him to be thinking. The a._c._c. is tougher. Come on ah. I want you to think clearly not. I don't want you using fuzzy math.

But we'll go. And just for like fun setup story. My cousin wrestled an alligator to save his dog a couple years ago. My goodness. Did what was the dog saved? I like. For all. Like, you would have led off with your cousin coming to a tragic end. I probably wouldn't have included story. Yeah. Yes. Both cousin Dogar. Okay. He does have a pretty massive like scarring on this side like scratch or bite or like by. Oh, dang. Hey. Yeah. He's. He's a wrestler. He's tall guy. Also, he lives in Florida. If you're wondering where he encountered this gator. It wasn't Atlanta. If it had been it would have something serious would have been wrong going on into Lanka. That's fascinating fascinating story. Also because it keeps coming up because I keep bringing it up Scooby doo on zombie island. There's a character called snake bike Scruggs who is a gator Wrangler. And he's I'm Mark Hamill. If I didn't trust in you, and and Mark Hamill, I would start to think that you were making things up. So that you could keep talking about Scooby doo on zombie island. I mean, that's not. Below me. But this is true in us like one of my favorite characters because he's got all his voice, so tough. And you know, caters everywhere, it's it's quite the film. I I believe you about that as well. Perfect. I can't wait to watch it. Also, I happen to have a favorite alligator in her name is lefty. Yeah. And she lives in a national park in Gulf shores, Alabama. Oh, she lost a Pau o the Park Rangers caller lefty. Well, I I don't personally have a favorite alligator. But I'm I'm glad you'll have to introduce me some time. Oh, I will. She's tough though. Oh, I believe you. You always wanna keep keep a good distance. Oh, I feel that way about most alligators thought what you've got most animals, honestly. But especially Gators. Yes. Alligators are by the way, these state reptile of Florida, Louisiana and Mississippi. Oh, wow. I'm relatively well. Acquainted with them. I did grow up for a while in south Florida. I'll also I went to the university of Florida, the mascot of witches the gator the Gators. Yes. Yeah. Big chopping. Yeah. Yeah. It is great to be a Florida gator or so they told me that's that's the chance I can feel the enthusiasm and school spirit. Well, I mean, you know, I I wasn't wasn't on the football team. So it's yeah. Oh, yeah. And feel good. I didn't have that much of a. Yeah. Okay. Can it? Sure. My mom went to the other one Florida look at his state university. Yes. So does that make his enemies? Are we rivals? Yeah. Oh, no end of podcast. I must've been dry mom school. Always knew it would end like this. Through state mascots, and we'll not I also wasn't into football. So I went to one game my entire college career. I did have fun. I went to I went to one as well. It was a homecoming game, which I think should count extra but two points. Yeah. Right. Totally. Okay. Yes. Anyway, I'm also went to Auburn is the same colors as the Florida gate it. Oh, intrigue abounds. Also, this headline. Yeah. Texas. Great grandmother shoots. Twelve foot gator as revenge for killing many horse. Wow. That is quite the headline to come up when you're researching a food podcast that is there was some strange reading for this episode. Absolutely. And that brings us to our question. Alligator. What is it? This is a fun one. I I love I love these animal episodes because it's always like what completely fascinating and beautiful creatures also tasty. When you deep fry it. There's something very odd about reading just. Oh, wow. It's this huge huge animal. But also, it's an restaurants. You know? Yeah. Yeah. Respect where your food comes from. Yes. And yes. So an alligator it's a big old apex predator? Reptile long jaaz along thick body and a long tail all powerful and better suited to water than land. Because its legs are a little bit stubby w legs. There are two existing species of alligator there in the crock Diliah family, and the genus name is alligator there's the Chinese species classification, alligator sinensis and the American classification alligator, Mississippi and SIS. Yes. That's it that American alligator can grow to about eight to fifteen feet and can weigh about three hundred to a thousand pounds for our metric friends that's about two and a half to four and a half meters. And one hundred fifty two four hundred fifty kilos. Not small. No, no bigger than me. The Chinese alligator is usually about half that size, and they usually in general live in the wild about forty years out of known to live to about twice that age in captivity. Wow. Because they are reptiles they have they have scales. The Chinese alligator has thick armored scales all over its body. The American is a softer on its belly. And they lay eggs, and they are crap at regulating their body temperature. They tend to live in warm freshwater wetlands where they can sunbathe on land to warm up and then cooled off in the water in the states. That's a mainly coastal areas of Texas through North Carolina. And they are opportunistic eaters, which I think also describes both of us would agree in in the case of alligators. It means. They don't usually expend energy like actively hunting. But we'll just sorta wait kind of stealthily for prey to come along. Whatever pray that might be. They have around eighty teeth. They don't chew with them though. They just rip and and their teeth will fall out and are replaced as they wear down. Terrifying. Yeah. They can also I love this bit. They can store. Excess calories in the form of fat reserves at the base of their tails and thus survived for like up to two years without eating. That's like the long con of waiting somebody out two years. They'll get comfortable. But then I straight. Oh, man. I feel like you just really felt like seen by allegations. Maybe maybe I do like a good revenge tale, this is not a bad horror movie. It needs to be. Oh, right. Get on it. It's like jaws, you know. The son or daughter of jaws and the next movie is. Just like that. Exactly. What we need it with Gators. Yes. Very important one of my favorites. Male Gators announce they are ready to mate with a Bello Bello. If a very serious Bello. I don't know if we can I don't know if we can get one for the show. But if we if we can find one it's gonna go right here. But yeah, no, they like alligators definitely chatter with each other. Yes, they're social creatures. This is the best research a yeah. They're one of the only reptiles that actively cares for their young for like two years after hatching and other than the biggest males and females which tend to be solitary. They often hang out in groups called congregations. Oh, but they also eat sharks. Like smaller sharks the shock. So now, we get a crossover movie, right? We've got revenge. Gator and revenge Cirque. Who crossover potentials very important when you're trying to sell movie these days, that's what I hear. I think we should not even air this part. We should get this. No thought of this before this is a golden goose lead by. Oh, I would watch that movie. I'd be ashamed of myself after probably but watch it. That's okay. You know as long as there's good snacks. That's true. Many pl-. Okay. Okay. I cannot plan a menu for this movie. That does not exist. Hunting alligators tends to be restricted in the United States, and it's generally illegal in China where they are endangered. Most alligator meat comes from farmed. Alligators often, the eggs are collected from wild nests and then hatched and raised on gator ranches, which is a great phrase, the Ed collection is also restricted. I mean, not that. I think that most people would like get it into their heads to go knock over gator nest for funsies, but hope not goodness. No laws do differ by state, but farmers who collect wild eggs generally have to release a certain percentage of hatchlings back into the wild. Once they're a couple years old. The Gators eaten. In restaurants, are usually farm raised and two to four feet long about one meter when they're killed. But some folks hunt Gators up to thirteen feet long almost four meters and freeze the meat and eat it all year long in the you have to have a license and tax hunt. Gator in the state legally part of the license requires that you harvest all Gators that you catch if you don't sell it noncommercial hunters are only permitted to hunt during the month of September the me offense halted and preserved and skin is used at boots belts and wallets in Florida Gators caught south of the the portion of I seventy five that runs east to west across the top of the Everglades Gators caught south of that cannot legally be sold for me because of the mercury levels in the water. Ooh, thanks humans that portion of ice, by the way is generally called alligator alley. Oh, yeah. And some alligator ranches also function as tourist spots. ES? You can pet baby Gators their ES. I have done that. Did you have the time of your life anytime that it gets to pet animal? It's my best day. Yes. And especially like, I really love reptiles because they're so smooth. Yeah. Yeah. Oh, well, the word again. From the Spanish word L, Garth Bo, meaning the lizard make sense. And if we're talking about the taste like chicken. Yeah. Yeah. You've had alligator right? I have most times it's has been fried and chicken like maybe a bit tougher game year. Yeah. And I've read that in in texture it's like Dr chicken, but in taste, it's more like white meat. I saw it described in food and wine as a love child between grouper and chicken. And I did have blackened alligator tail in savannah. And I would agree. I would agree with that assessment. Yeah. Yeah. Some sort of like a spring year flakier chicken, kind of I think I've I think I've only ever had it like fried and like little like alligator bite like nugget forums. Yeah. But yeah, that's good. I've I've read that it can be a lot like a veal. Oh, really if you're into that. There's a few cuts of alligator meat that are popular the tail contains these four cylinders of muscles running down the length of it sometimes called tenderloins which can be sliced crosswise into cutlets. There's a cut from the back of body like a like up behind the legs sometimes called the sirloin. The cheeks can be eaten out you woulda pork or fish jowls. The forelegs are eaten called wings. They look like the chicken wing flats. Whoa. Oh, yeah. And there's meat on the ribs in Louisiana alligators. Eating and Stu sauteed grunted, a sausage. I feel like you and been had alligator jerky on snack stuff. Yeah. I mean, it tasted like jerky is that like generally the consensus because you had a lot of types of jerky on that show. Jonathan strickland. Brought us like a batch of of weird jerky one time, and it was just jerky for days. Like there was. I mean, but yeah. At a certain point, I think this one did have a little bit more of that of that texture that I'm talking about that kind of like springing, but once you put jerky seasoning into something. It's that's what that's the flavor. It's Turkey jerky. Yeah. Well, people do eat it in all these various braids a restaurant. We didn't get to go to. But was highly recommended to us while we were in New Orleans, Jack Imos of looking at their menu. And there's something on there called alligators cheesecake, I am equal parts dubious and curious. I'm so interested in what that is apparently around New Orleans. Many families have a personal horseradish sauce recipe to accompany their family gator. I've heard telev- alligators sushi. Oh my goodness. I know. Well, I don't know if it was raw or cooked. Well, if anyone knows please write in. Yeah. In florida. I read the most popular part of the gator is the ribs over in China. Alligators are associated with myths about like fierce, but benevolent earth dragons, some historians think that alligators were a basis of some of these myths and alligator meat is thought by some to have positive. Health benefits for those associated reasons? It is rarely eaten these days because the species is in danger. But when it is it might show up as a stakes in rice bowls or in soups. Yup. And what about the nutrition alligator is a it's it's a pretty good meat. It's a it's super high in protein, pretty low in fat and cholesterol. And that's because unlike in mammals, which tend to have fat marbled through the muscle, the fat and alligator is mostly between the muscles and the skin three ounces of a tail cut has thirty nine grams of protein and only four grams of fat of that's a if that's dietary thing that you're looking for then. Yeah. There you go. If we look at the numbers the American alligator was once on the endangered species list. But now holds the no concern label Louisiana produces the most alligator meat in the United States and demand for gator has gone up in the past several years. Doubling the price. Ice from about six dollars a pound to about thirteen dollars, a pound perhaps more so than most other meats, it's suffers during economic hardships outside of that region. Oh, yeah. Definitely. Oh. And keep in mind that six to thirteen bucks a pound. That's wholesale. Gator meat can cost upwards of twenty bucks a pound retail. But yes, very volatile market and the market for alligator skin goes hand in hand with gator meat because it's it's bigger. The alligators can market is bigger. Hide can go for twenty to forty dollars per foot. Ooh. As a twenty fifteen the seventeen farms in Florida sold one point seven million dollars in meat and six point eight million dollars in hides during the recession in the twenty ought some farmers stopped collect gags to hatch entirely because the market for leather dip, so hard as a the market for luxury goods was dipping writes gator is a popular choice during lint as in. Okay. Meet up shin for Friday's because it counts as seafood, which really cracks me up. I guess I mean, they listen to the water a bunch. I guess it was up for some debate so much. So that the archbishop of New Orleans was asked about it in a letter pinned in twenty ten and he responded thusly. Yes. The alligators considered in the fish family, and I agree with you Cording to the writer, God has created a magnificent creature that is important to the state of the week. And it is. -sidered seafood. Well, there you have it. Archbishop can argue and it is a fun rabbit hole. The planning restaurants have to do in Galilee communities around increase demand for seafood during lint New Orleans is just about the best place to be during lint, which is supposed to be about deprivation in the words of archbishop, quite frankly, and I can say this because I'm from New Orleans having to fulfil this law are this guideline of absence of meat on Fridays. Is a no sacrifice whatsoever. That's the reality. In Louisiana over three hundred thousand alligators are harvested every year valued at some thirty three million dollars. Uh-huh. Singing alligator on menus outside of the south is somewhat of a rarity though. And because of that it is sometimes described as one of the last truly local foods, I kind of enjoy. Yeah. Yeah. But the alligator has a long and interesting history. Yes. And we will get into that. As soon as we get back from a quick break for word from our sponsor. Today's episode is sponsored by Royal Caribbean.

Thank you sponsor. Yes. Thank you. Okay. So the alligator the specific species has been around about one hundred and fifty million years hall. Yeah. They outlasted their dinosaur relatives. Okay. Well, good for them. So pretty old. They're doing pretty good job surviving eating alligator, though is a bit more recent. And as you might as you might imagine from the creatures terrifying visage is born of necessity. I've actually read from Forber alligator poacher that it is easier to run an alligator ranch than a cattle ranch. But that being said, nah, likely alligator would not be my first choice if I saw a lineup of animals rights. Yeah. Nope. Either. No, a native Americans in. What is now northern Florida where hunting and eating alligator a time before? Europeans got over here. Maybe like four thousand years or so the Tamukua living along the northeastern coast of the Gulf of Mexico would smoke gator to preserve it. And I read a Louisiana Choctaw legend about alligator. Can we do a little a little legend break? Always cool. Okay. Yeah. So the tail is about this hunter who comes upon an alligator dying of thirst. And he helps the alligator get to water and afterward. The gator tells him how to hunt deer, you know. Like don't go for the young ones. Don't go for the mothers. But the ones that were old and had lived useful lives. There's an emphasis in the story on on greeting and thanking the animals and that giving the hunter greater power and the story ends with the hunter telling the story to his people. And it says that that those who understood the alligators. Wisdom and followed its teachings would become great hunters and never go hungry. That's a pretty good legend break. Yeah. European settlers were most likely eating alligator in Louisiana in the eighteen hundreds. It was being consumed in the southern United States by the mid eighteen hundreds four sure at one time alligator meat was believed to be medicinal. And it still is by some particularly for asthma and the common cold, the scales were once thought to cure syphilis. As European colonists. Forced native Americans in what's now, southern Florida down into the Everglades in the eighteen. Hundreds those native Americans learned to hunt alligators to those were the Seminole and miccosukee tribes, and yeah, they they learned to hunt alligators and incorporated them into their cuisine the traditional methods that they developed to catch. Alligators are sometimes performed for tourists to this day. It's sold as being alligator wrestling. But I mean, it's really just like alligator don't bite me. That's basically what it is. I mean, it's very impressive. I don't mean to undersell. Oh, no. This is the thing that I have also seen. I'm like legitimately nervous. And yes land you thinking about even this like four floors up like in Santa sound like somehow I'm gonna turn around. Gator looking in the window. I. Stubby Paul is is does. I think I think we're safer now who good colonists. In Florida started hunting alligators game and for their hides as well a bit later in the eighteen hundreds and this started to be when alligator populations started dwindling, and that was exacerbated when alligator skin became a really hot fashion trend in France in the late eighteen fifties. And then further again when the confederates turned to alligator leather for shoes and saddles during the civil war. This is also around when industrial leather tanning technology developed, so so the boom on alligator skin was driven by that as well. It was kind of like a Gators were in the wrong place. Wrong time kind of thing. Yeah. Some folks were eating alligator eggs by the nineteen hundreds. And this brings us to one of the most super depressing. Parts of this episode. An article from the Washington Times published in nineteen came with a story about a zookeeper in New York who sent to black children into an enclosure twenty-five alligators and crocodiles purportedly to the entertainment of the patrons. And to lead the reptiles to a different enclosure. In the words of the zookeeper. The gator had quote epicure in fondness for the black man. There's no indication in the article that the zookeeper ever faced any punishment or any negative language around his actions at all time magazine reported on a similar thing. In one thousand twenty Florida black babies being used as bait for hunters looking to kill some alligators with no intention of saving the children. The Miami New times had a similar article and in one thousand nine hundred nineteen the Richmond times dispatch reported on it with more concern for the alligators than the children in alligator eating a black baby was a float in nineteen o to parade in Saint Louis and some storylines read these. As as as jokes. But even so that's pretty despicable. Yeah. Yeah. That's the worst. It is. It is hard to say whether these were real events that happened or just particularly cruel fictions that were designed for white audiences with ugly thoughts about people of color during this period of American history. Like, really unblinking racism was considered fashionably titillating in some circles. It's where some stuff like a like a lot of HP lovecraft s- work comes from which you know, has many admirable qualities, but it's also just racist. Af. So yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Others that there's there's that. Back to alligator populations by nineteen sixty two the population of wild. Alligators was so low in the United States less than one hundred thousand that Florida outlawed hunting them a national law would be passed in nineteen sixty seven and those laws. It's considered one of the most successful wildlife. Preservation attempts ever by nineteen eighty-seven alligators were removed from the endangered species list and the following year. Florida began issuing limited hunting licenses limited funds from the permits. Do go towards a gator conservation and the population in Florida is now over one point three million. It's pretty decent. Yeah. Over in China by the nineteen ninety s the hunting of alligators for food, and as vermin as farm started encroaching on their wetlands hit a really scary peak, the largest population at the time was a single pond that had eleven alligators that was surrounded by rice, patties and. Video rental shop. Yeah. There were fewer than one hundred thirty alligators. Total in the wild with work. There are now larger populations in captivity. But they are still considered endangered. There's about ten thousand total with more being hatched every year. Though. There are concerns with such a small pool a of inbreeding causing genetic problems down the line. Yeah. Sure. By two thousand six though some restaurants had started serving olym-, it'd amounts farm raised alligator in China. Anyone in China right in? No, yeah. Yeah. It was apparently like a big like kind of fashion like. Ooh, right. Yeah. Yeah. Meanwhile, back in the states Katrina 's damage to Louisiana wetlands did severely impact wild alligator breeding grounds. The oil spill wouldn't wouldn't help either. No, no. And then for some mysterious reason the history channel has a series called swamp. People about people in Louisiana who hunt Gators lots of not so great things happened on that show, including a cast member getting arrested for selling alligator meat illegally. It's been called out by Dominic Monaghan. No less. Okay. But others to for glorifying the killing of animals and demonizing alligators. It started in two thousand ten and yet still running during perhaps its peak popularity around twenty thirteen to twenty fifteen. Yeah. It drove popularity and prices of alligator meat like way up like prices doubled in those in that two year period. And a few other related shows have popped up as well. Gator boys. On animal planet starting in two thousand twelve and growing up gator in two thousand fourteen. See I would love growing up gator was about like being in a UF family university of Florida. And then, but you know, you can't you don't wanna go there. And it's all big lie, and you to find out the way to tell you. See I would watch that show. That sounds like a good show. Not not none of this nonsense. Oh in in two thousand fifteen amid that boom some alligator ranches experienced theft. What's data crime wash these stole some one thousand one hundred eggs in a single heist worth around sixty six thousand dollars. Oh my goodness. We need to do a whole like miniseries on food heist. I am in in a 2017, the Florida fish and wildlife conservation commission revealed a two year undercover sting to catch poachers. Mostly Valla Gators, but other wild and protected species as well, they wound up arresting nine people, including racketeering charges like criminal organization, wo four of those people one of the defendants said that the sting didn't even scratch the surface. What's but others say that the worst of the charged crimes were only committed because the undercover officers like go to them into it like entrapment? Oh, so wow. Yeah. I haven't read it follow up. But. Intrigue. No so much intrigue. Kinda reminds me of the rescuers down under with crocodiles. But is that whole poacher thing? I just watch that very recently so fresh on my brain. Oh, man. In two thousand eighteen a clean by gator hunter. And chef that Gators destroying the wetlands, and that's hunting them was a good thing. Was deep monks. Bring it up because it circulated enough that there's a snoops entry about it. You know popped up in a lot of the results. Yeah. Yeah. I mean, you know, in certain areas, certainly I I think that they can be considered like vermin like that need to be controlled better. Yeah. Oh, well, this has been quite we have covered a lot of ground in this at the set. We have oh goodness. We've got a little bit more for you. But first we've got one more quick break for word from our sponsor. This episode of saver is brought to you by smart water. I drink a lot of water. I have witnessed you do it. Yes.

And we're back with. That's how they found like. Sure the documentary. I don't know why we just didn't do the bellow are fed. Clearly, we know what we're doing. Absolutely Peggy wrote I was born and raised in south, Louisiana. I am loving this series based New Orleans. I didn't learn how to make Gumbo until after I married. The first time my ex mother in law is a Cajun granny as we call her makes the best Gumbo in the world. She doesn't cook with the recipe. But it always tastes the same. Delicious to me Gumbo. Always tastes better. The second day. The flavor seems to intensify. So when I do make it it is always the day before we also like to serve Gumbo with potato salad. I like to eat a little potato salad in my combo. I know granny makes her route in a black cast iron Skillet and adds it to her water ten minutes before she serves her Gumbo. She snips green onions tops and chopped fresh parsley. I now live in Minnesota. And brought my Cajun cooking skills with me. Oh that sounds does. Oh. Oh, Genucel wrote I just listened to your episode on kit Kat bars, which by the way are my very favorite chocolate bar, but only the classic forefinger bar. You revealed that the inner shock oh layer is in fact, partly made up of ground up kit, Kat bars that didn't make the cut for sale that reminded me of my summer job during undergrad where I worked at a wafer cookie factory away for cookies are those rectangular cookies that have three layers of away for with two layers of sugary cream like filling and the common flavors are vanilla strawberry or chocolate. The are not exciting cookies and that always disappointed people when they heard what type of cookie factory, I was working at the time. So I'm a little disturbed to find out that kit cats, my favorite chocolate bar, basically, the same thing. Anyway for those wafer cookies like kit, Kat bars. There was a certain amount of what was termed rejoined who that was mixed in the filling part the re grind would be from wafer cookies where the layers separated had bubbles were cut wrong or packaged wrong and could not be sold. There was an entire job consisted of going around all day long gathering up all the unsatisfactory wafer cookies grinding them up and delivering them to the bakers to include in the mixing. I thought it was really gross when I started working there. But I got used to it really fast. And yes, we were allowed to eat unlimited cookies while at work, although for me that only lasted a couple of days at the start of each summer fun. Interesting summer job, right? Wafer cookie factors. Yeah. Oh, I mean, I love that. It's somebody's entire task is like more. These unsatisfied back on gooky. Yeah. Eh night. And I love that. Like this. This kind of cookie cannibalism is like a known factor. I know in in cookie baking cookies. What a way to put it. Well. Thanks to both of them for writing in if you'd like to write to us.

Jim Quits?

"The pride passion than pageantry of college. Football leaves here. This is the Paul finebaum show. Best of podcast. Say Hello to you on a Thursday, wrapping up the month. Von Koerber, wrapping up the. Mid point of the season heading down the stretch and so much to discuss on the program today. Yeah. Good old fashioned. Hey, we're heard that before that's what this robberies all about. George always such a big game. You're talking about joining states so much history in the game. Jordan, floor passion. Pageantry Neutra side. A lot of energy to gain sides a lot of featuring is east most years, and particularly it'd be to stay in first place in the in the SEC keep the playoff hopes alive and in SEC championship. Soaps definitely well over one hundred percent if you don't, but you probably are certainly noted anybody can beat anybody. Every game is his game. Indeed, it is to new Brie coaches. The young breeds in this game. Interesting to juxtapose that versus Rick and urban, but that's not the only game going on this Saturday. There are a few other ones in berry. He's a fan with Bob stoops is Doug now kind of that. Very good football team. I have a lot of respect for and. I really think berries done a great job. And one thing. I really noticed admire football team. They play hard. They played tough. They're motivated in their hungry challenge. It waits on us an opportunity on Saturday and a great Kentucky team and the way that they've played six and one their six one four reason they run the ball stream. Well, and they play great defense. You better be very very conscious running because they put a lot of pressure on your with the running game Baxter, very very talented. And in that sets up. There are peo- gives him. Some basically throw football should be a great atmosphere. Guys are excited about having a chance plant home and against a one of the one of the best teams in the country right now. Okay. So a lot there for Mark stoops and berry Odem, the two coaches Saturday. But what about the game next week? It always you're on breaking news, Nick Sabin. We'll go down as the greatest coach in history of the game. Thank you had always been more same as done. A fantastic job is you'll go down the greatest college football coach in the history of the game. So give him credit. What they've done it out Obama. Okay. Wow. Thank you go ch and you'll be the greatest coach LSU history. If you beat him next week release, you'll be well on your way to being that mad. Good afternoon. Welcome to the program. Oh, good afternoon. How are you? Thank you very much. Well, not to apologize for Bill but to be an apologist for him. Okay. Now, you know, very well because you're in a Telit Bainian. Well, educated bought the James Carville uses hyperbole exaggeration to get a point across to to make a splash to spread awareness. And that is exactly what he was doing. You're hanging onto his comment about Saudi Arabia, though, you've been serious about it. When you very well. He was his point was you get into the imagination of people and caused him to think about a problem, which we have. And the problem is the perception of bias in the southeastern convert fall, we tried for years and years to get this problem droughts. No, one has beta ten which problem is that by the way, the problem is the as you well know, there is a need in any officiating or judging for not only integrity impropriety, but that there'd be no appearance. No wide. Spread understanding or belief that it's prejudiced or by. There is widespread belief on many fan bases that -ficiating in the southeastern competence is prone to Bama by you know, it, and I know it doesn't matter if it's true the perception is there, and it's real which calls into question the integrity of the cough. Nepal. We tried for years to address this. No one's list. It's time to go mad, and how how have you tried to address this? And what it what means? Letters to the cop complaints to the athlete directors complaints to the SEC everything we could do to get the tension to the issue and to be asked to questionable. Do you believe that there is a real perception of bias among the fan of certain suits? And I do not. You do not believe that that there's a significant number of people that go to LSU or Auburn or other schools in the southeastern conference who believe that the officiating biased, not a majority of people know, there may be scattered fans from every every walk of the conference. But I listen, I swam these waters every day, and until this week I had not heard this issue raised in a very long time. Well, Paul it's there it's raised every year. We went in twenty two hours from concepts of billboards in Birmingham. But answer me this mad personally game is is great. But outside of what we saw Saturday against Mississippi State. When was the last major controversy involving LSU in the SEC officiating every year. No, no, don't don't give me generic give me a specific. Example, you just got through saying there is a preponderance of thought you can't even give me one other example, because this is a red herring. This is a a starter. This is a bunch of BS. Would you agree with me, Paul? No. He's still waiting for you to answer. My question. Call there are numerous examples and you wind. Okay. I don't I don't want numerous I want a single example from you outside of last weekend of the last time LSU had a major beef about officiating with the southeastern conference every year. It's no who ever called the bottom line. Bottom line is that you cannot answer the question because you're full of it. Sorry had to tell the truth here because it's tell the truth. Thursday, listening to the Paul finebaum show podcast. Well, you think about Florida Georgia? It's hard to think about the next guest seeds Freyer. Joining us always great to talk to the coach coach good afternoon to you. And I can. Imagine no matter how many times even countered this game. It always has a special feeling good afternoon. Yeah. I'm really looking forward to watching this one. I can't remember when both teams were pretty much Daniel six and one and pretty much got a shot at eastern division. Whoever wins it although Kentucky is still in the mix. And of course, if Kentucky wins out there in. But anyway, there's a lot homeland this year at this fall coach someone who who played in it and coached in it. I've I've this is not something that I'm a dab too. Because I I never really participated in this game until recently. But what makes us so important are special? Historically is still the biggest name the Florida Gators play. Georgia's got so many robberies. I don't know if they would say this one or all burner, Georgia Tech or whoever they say. But I think for Florida in the SEC is Georgia BULLDOGS and then outside maybe half issue something like that. But historically is, you know, Paul Georgia used to beat us. Oh, what eighty percent seventy five eighty percent of the time. And I was victim of that. Also, I got two out of three years three in years at Florida before Senate Lii in nineteen ninety when I got tends to coach against him. I had a lot better team than they had and we sort of reverse the psychology of the gator bowl the game in Florida. And the Gators went on a good run after that. We had buddy Martin on the other day. And he always mentioned you liking the game in in Florida. And I know this game has been there for a million years. But was there ever a serious conversation about take me back the campus? Paul when I got hired here. Some of the big Gators former das- here and so forth administration. Steve we can't beat Georgia and Jacksonville we need to go home and home with them least doing beat them half the time. And I just said, wait a minute. The games in Jacksonville, Florida in a place called the gator bowl back. We get on the bus. They have to fly down if that's more like a home game. I don't know. What is it'd be a Cleveland to us playing Georgia in Atlanta every year in a stadium called the bulldog bowl? Now, we say ain't no way we're going to do that. Well, that's what they do. But they've been kicking our book so many years they have a fun time doing it. So they're going to keep coming as long as they're big us down here. But we we got a chance to reverse this thing because the first couple of years we had a whole lot better team than them. And then the third year we were actually entered dogs. But it was probably my favorite win of all of them. We'd beat him twenty six twenty four. And that was that was a real good. When that was. The first year of division play and that day, South Carolina, actually, upset Tennessee beat them like twenty five twenty four and we'd be Georgia twenty six twenty four. So that was my son my most fun bus ride that today's on. I bet talking to coach spur your coach. Let's let me ask you about the the Gators this year because we wondered about the quarterback situation in the off season. We're not wondering anymore. Your your your comments on Philippa and the job done so far. Yes. Taking care of the ball much much better than last year. And we we've always had pretty good place down here at Florida offense has really been in that the last three years, I think coaching Michael lanes often x one hundred twelve hundred and fourteen hundred sixteen that's easy to remember the last three years and Dan Lawler and his staff they got good sound offense run pass. But we I don't think we need to throw forty five times a game. We need to keep it around twenty five to thirty. Let those running backs go and play good defense and be talents. Here the first two games. CC Jefferson David race too key defensive players didn't play and now they're back. And I really think that is completely picked up the defense and offense running backs or a really good hard runners. So this team's different after that Kentucky loss. It was sort of a waiting for the Gators. I think they learn how to practice better. And I think we got a real good team. Good chance to win this Saturday. I'm gonna get your assessment of the other side because Georgia with all the expectations that come with being the national runner up. Just seems like they struggled a little bit certainly loss in Baton Rouge. That's not uncommon but your assessment of the dogs, especially starting with Jim. Very good early in the season as we know. And I guess they sputtered around a little bit still seem to win through some special team play and stuff like that. Yeah. Their offense hasn't been going just up and down the field. But when you say Georgy, you still got to think of those running backs. That's that's in their history. Running a ball up and down the field. So if we stop the run that gives us a lot better chance whether or not Jake from or feels or those guys pitch it around successfully we'll have to find out. But I think key always to be those guys guys got stop the run. Let me get a couple of thoughts about about some other teams in the league star with Alabama. We're down in Auburn a couple of weeks ago and Pat dye joined us, and of course, he was on coach Bryan staff as you remember? And he said he thought to was was better at this point of his career than been Nemeth or Kenny stay or two quarterbacks of your era. I I know we're always grasping for straws trying to compare but you're Cessna of two as he is going into the second half of the season. Yeah. He is a beautiful passer. Are they everybody agrees with that? And he knows how to look off guys and let it go. He's got a quick release. And he seems pretty doggone smart back there. Also, they're big games are coming out tell everybody, you know, season. We're just one game over halfway or so and everything's to be determined. You know, who's gonna win divisions is gonna win SEC's, and and so forth. So at the halfway or look past halfway point. There's a lot of teams out there. But certainly I'll abandon looks like by far the best. But they got some big games coming. So I'm sure hell s you look forward to that one. What next week I guess would Bama on the LSU game coach big conversation this week about Devon white missing the first half. There have been call out. Call after call from LSU fans, not happy about the officiating. Some even claiming bias in the SEC office. Bring up the. LSU Florida robbery, which many have brought up can you? Can you help us understand because you coach the coach against LSU? Of course, they had the coach against you too. But was there ever a moved to change that once we went to division play? Florida LSU game. Yes, go. Yeah. Jila leva talked about it. And you know, I really sorta made sense rotate around the other division when they first did it we had all been and LSU at Florida to you know, to really pretty good rival teams. Heck when I played the sixties we've played both those guys every year, so sort of natural I guess to keep playing them. But now, we don't play Auburn at all think whatever ten years or something like that. But yeah, Gela livas said, hey, you know, how do we plan Florida every year? We ought to be playing Vanderbilt, you know, how come missive state just play Vanderbilt every year. We don't get to have had a point and sometimes life in fair. But I think that's just the way it is right now. But the on top of that the allegation seem to be about bias with the -ficiating you've dealt with the SEC as a coach at two different schools in do you think that's a fair allegation by some LSU people that? That Alabama gets the better end of the deal. Oh, we used to joke around about it a little bit that the league office. You know was in Birmingham and Commissioner Kramer, put the SEC championship game Birmingham. First two years. I think I think finally by said, you know, Atlanta's pretty good spot at their commission, we need to not play one. Alabama's home fields historically. So they got it moved up there. But I don't know. It's Alabama wins it so much. They look for anything to try to criticize. I guess finally let's get back to Jacksonville this weekend. And I realized what side you're on. But if you had to pick one part of the game that you think will determine the outcome. Where would you point? Oh, I always say whoever plays the best Paul in. Oh football. Where such an interesting sport. So some days one team really plays. Well, mex- play next bench third downs. Some some day. They can't make one they score touchdowns. Instead of having to kick field goals in the red zone. It could easily come down to that. If one team plays really really good red zone defense forces to three field goes. And maybe only one touchdown. That's a good sign right there. So I don't know. I just I just think that team that plays the best place most complete, you know, full game will probably be the winner house that that's that. That's exactly what I thought you'd say. That's pretty much the truth. Right. There really is is one of those boxes are checked that that's the difference. Well, coach always good just catch up. Thank you for joining us. Thanks for Colin Powell Tokyo later on the bed. Si Spurrier dropping some serious knowledge on there about how the games are one. Listening to the Paul finebaum show podcast. Dewey joining us. Pat, always great to catch up. It's hard to imagine or believe a year ago today final rights were being or close to being administered to Jim mcelwain and the Florida program has a pulse again. Good afternoon. Yep. Here from you. Yeah. It is. We we've been talking about that a lot this week. Just that in the players thought about it. They didn't really talk about it last year after happened. But that they that morning. They were they were listening because mcelwain tell him and talk to them and never said he was getting fired. But indicated he was and they were all worried about their assistant coats that, you know, their physician coaches, and they kind of went into the game like Dombi he saw twenty one nothing like seven point two eight game. Never recovered from that. But yeah, totally different beieve atmosphere about this game. Now, you have to teams top ten for six time. Never. Let's talk about the Gators here. We know about the early part of the season, but they've made up for that big way. And of course, it stayed and obviously against LSU. Pat, your longtime veteran watching Florida teams, look good. And maybe not always finished is this team built to finish the season. Well. Well, I think they are physically. I think the the the job Nick savage did in the Aussies certainly showing up. You think your injury? You're seeing good teams that a team that's really been pretty good before quarter of some tough games and physically held up. So yeah. And I think the off we came at a good time. Obviously, George feels the same way. But you know, I mean, these are there's only one gimme left that the big thing to me Paul is that their floor is in is pretty darned good. I mean, the worst they can do seven at five, and nobody would be really thrilled with that. But I think going to the year, you know, people seven five was not the worst thing in the world enter foreign seven, so, but that's the worst. They can do. And that means they lose this game. They lose to Missouri, South Carolina at home. And then they lose to Florida state, which I don't think for the thing happen. If you had to pick a specific area where this season has turned. And we're the coaching staff perhaps his made the right call. Where would it be? Well, you know, I think more than anything it's been that that they have been able to get these guys understand. And I think it took a while. And maybe it was in starkville where this team finally grasp. But hey, the coaching staff knows how to win the game. They know what they're doing. And if you just do what we're telling you to do you're going to be fine where you're going to win games. And you know, there's no question that the game out there, which was loud as I've ever heard hyped up and everything and even though they didn't play great offensively. They found a way to win that game. I think that's what they kind of went. You know, he's coaches over there talking about and it's been carried over I think to the following week with LSU talking to Pat Dooley. Let's let's talk about in for a second pad because we knew he was good coach we knew his pedigree. But did you think as you alluded to minute ago? It would be this quick. Well, I they're still not a great team, Paul. They're they're a really good thing. Like a lot of lot of teams are this conference and he sound ways to win games. I think he's gotten the most out of. And I think I think the the most impressive thing he's done hasn't been calling plays or or offense or anything like that. It is that the way he's gotten guys to buy in only by in. But getting the fans I've mentioned this before bringing the fans under the ten again. I mean, they were pushed out of the tent by the previous coats. And this guy's brought them into the tent made them feel like they're part of it again. And I think that's that's certainly has been a plus this team is still has a lot of laws, and and but they they play hard. And that's all you can really ask, you know. I think the talent gap between them and in Georgia. I think I thought a lot of thought it was a lot bigger than it was then it's turned out that the because we. You were kind of looking at what Georgia done. I think it I think doors is still got a little bit better players. But I thought they had a lot that are players with these. Let me stay right there. Because a lot of people felt the same thing that this Georgia team was was going to row as you watch this league and with your experience as a as an observer what what what's your Cessna Georgia, and they still have a good record. And they may end up doing what we thought they would do. But they just haven't seen quite as good. Why not? Yeah. You know, I really Mike feary was going through the early part of the season that they were bored. And they were just waiting for the the big names in the first big game came and they got whacks. So it's it's kind of interesting that still big win this game. And as you know, the offer is quite the formidable foe that we thought they were going to be at the end of the season. And then end up right back in Atlanta when the chance to Alabama or l issue, I guess technically and go to the college football playoff, and it I still think they're good enough to do that. But I think they've had you know, look that the players they lost or so good. And so an inexperienced I mean, they lost to starting running backs in the NFL, and nobody teams ever have that let alone two of on the same team. And I think that was a factor. I think I'm not sure that the Jake Brahm Justin feel sing isn't an issue. I guess maybe we'll know a little bit more the ceased goes along. But, you know, maybe he's creeping over shoulder peaking over shoulder or maybe not maybe we're making too much of that. And their offense of line has played the the biggest tomato call on. I think you would agree with this is when I look at the numbers and their last I think in the SEC and Saks and that that's that. That's amazing for Georgia with talent they have to be last time. No doubt as we close up here. Pat paint a picture of this game for us. What should we watch for? What should we look for? And how do you think it if flows? Well, I think the biggest thing is this game always seems to come down to guys teams making mistakes and then turnovers happened. And then all of a sudden teams short feels and also momentum gets going one way instead of the other. You know, you can always say well the run for the most wins the game. But my thing is always then what the team runs for the most. Because they got the league. That's why the run the ball. But you know, I think the key Florida is going to be not to have those turnovers to be able to grind it out. 'cause Georgia is actually leads the nation and fewest plays over twenty yards. That tells me that they're they're backing up a little bit there. They're playing a little bit softer cover news. And they're letting you kind of if you're willing to take it five at six years at a time. And that's what Florida's done only. So they've got a kind of stay with that game plan. But the fast thing thing to me. Call more than anything is how these coaches call this game because they both had a week off. Sometimes there's over over thinking through it. Sometimes they over manage like they Roberts is right now with. And you end up with out of empty the classic was when Mark decided to start a baton outta in. Remember that I still can't believe that happen tree on Harrison to ended up going to elegance floor or against Georgia. So, but I think it's the one key is going to be of, you know, just not whoever whoever wins that battle. I would I would bet would win the day that many thanks always good to catch up. We will see. All right. Great talking to you about Pat Dooley. One of the best ever covers the Gators and has a couple of years to Florida greats Dewey and sprayer who said team the plays the best but win to listening to Paul finebaum show podcast. Geico presents eyewitness interviews with inanimate objects. Visit Belinda Collins live on the scene of a recent hailstorm here to describe the events of bro. I was just hanging on the roof.

Your football can't help you in a hailstorm. But the geiko insurance agency can help you get covered for personal property damage. Call gyco to see how a Ford -able homeowners insurance can be Taylor in Tennessee. You're on the air go right ahead Taylor. Hell, hey, Paul. I actually was your last caller last night. How are you? I am doing great. Glad you came back. Yeah. Absolutely. So real quick before. I before I get the my question just to follow up. No you were talking to Matt from New Orleans earlier. And I just wanted to make a statement. I think that the issue with LSU fans, including myself is that look the expectation every year, we don't it doesn't matter. If we've lost. Three games for the Bama game. It doesn't matter to feed it the expectations to beat Alabama. That's all we want is fans. Obviously, we'd rather be undefeated. But you know, there's a lot of ocean going into that. So losing Devon white for the first half, obviously being blow. But at the end of the day, the defense hasn't even our struggle. We've got guys that can cover that vision. Patrick queens. Phenomenal offense relish Hugh's been the struggle for years now. So I don't know why it become this big of a deal, but just wanted to make that statement, and I don't feel like LSU fans of overly complained in your path. But but moving onto my question Paul as I look at the teams this year. There's a lot of one team that are very talented very good on. And then there seemed like LSU who may finish into somewhere in that area. But have arguably the number one string substantial so it's not been discussed in a long time. And I'd like to get your take of the pros and cons. Of eighteen playoff. And would that make things more competitive? Would it increase recruiting or Taylor there? There are some I have some friends who say that. It's an absolute I am I'm in favor of sixteen playoff because that way you give one into a by. And I think six is in my mind enough, my argument against eight is the super teams are going to just sleep off their way through the end of the year. I mean, if let's say Alabama, for example with an eighteen playoff. What left? Do they have to prove? They will be in the they could lose LSU and went out there in they they could beat LSU and lose the SEC championship came in bien. So I think that may be too much. I'm not opposed to it. I am post. Well, we have now in partly because the people that run college football. It's so perfect. I don't think it's at perfect. It's better than it was. But it's not perfect. I think I think by adding more you. You you make the season more interesting so six or eight is fine with me as long as we can figure out how to do it. I think there's plenty of time. College football waste the month of December as you know. The the weekend after the championship game is the army navy game. And I think that's an important game. But that's the only game you could possibly use that weekend when you get into Christmas, you you are playing with a little a little bit of fire, but you could extend it a little bit. I mean, there are there are many ways to do it. You could start the season earlier the the last weekend and August is fine with me if we start the season. So I just think they're excuses are are week. So I'm I'm partially in agreement with you. But I'm totally in agreement that we need more than we have. Yeah. I agree with that on so not just from the competitive fame point. But you know, I was talking to my wife yesterday. What does this do for the university on your selling more ticket? You're you're building high around your fan base thing. Also allowing these recruit to not look at it and say, well, I only want to choose from these top four Cain. No. You're right injury. Banding it'd be on that and that the comes more competitive which in turn making the whole league in Taylor. I think college football has a problem, and I know on a program like this, you don't see it. But when I'm in New York, which I am every week with people that don't know anything about college football and don't care. They only look at the tree top issues, and they look at save. And they look at Harbaugh they look at urban. They don't see what's underneath that. And I think that that hurts the overall perception of the game now that the NBA exhibition games are outranking some college football game. So college football needs. It needs a shot in the arm. It needs an adrenalin. Pomp, and I'm really interested. As we start to move toward the most important part of the year to hear what college football leaders have to say, I'm willing to bet you the next Tuesday night. The chairman of the college football playoff committee will have you convinced that there's nothing better and everything's perfect. And they've just spent forty eight hours going through their ipads, looking at film. But it's still an imperfect situation. It's not as disastrous for some of the fly in the guy say it is. But it still can be better. Yep. I agree with you. And you can't tell that to, you know, the pin states and stuff the last year with fake Wambach -ly Andy stack teams that probably could have competed with the top four just fine. No look at twenty fifteen. I still think house they may have had the best team in the country. They lost Michigan state. They left out. They would have been in in six or eight. You're listening to the Paul finebaum show podcast. They matter joining us talking about Missouri. Good to have you on. It's been a while and Missouri with an opportunity this weekend. After a rather unfortunate star playing to the better teams in the country. Let's talk about what this game means as we say Hillary this afternoon. Hey, paul. How's it going? It's great really. Appreciate your time. So is this really going to be a signature win? If very Odem gets this victory at home. Well, that's what Missouri needs. They haven't had one of these in a while program hasn't beaten a ranked team since Gary pimple coach in in the last bowl game that he coached in. And and we talk about that's the next step in. How you become a more competitive team that, you know, the games a little bit more notoriety. When when you beat a ranked team hasn't done it yet under under very this is this is the best chance they're going to get the rest of the year. 'cause next week. They go to Florida, and it's a lot easier when you're at home, and I think they match up. Okay. With this Kentucky team, Missouri savored by touchdown, which kinda surprised me. And it's probably a lot of people, and this is the opportunity that they want and that do lock needs to to beat a ranked team for the first time. I listened comes up with its own ideas. But this Kentucky team has been under va-. Valued all year long and even even in the A and M game they lost but went overtime. So I mean, it's not like this team is is losing when even when it lost is losing badly. Let's talk about Missouri. Because it seems to me, and you covered the team that they really let get away at South Carolina beyond that. I can't find much fall to win. At Purdue looks really good now too. Yeah. It does that sound Carolina game. It was such a weird game the way that unfolded. I mean, really it was about a seven minute stretch where Missouri just kind of fell apart and Doug themselves too. Big of a whole and really that loss. It's sort of it gives you a different perspective on the whole season. Had had they won that game. Then you're looking at a schedule. You know, they lost a Georgia. They lost at Alabama. There's no shame in that. You know, they've got winnable games down the stretch. But but instead they had that three game losing streak. And and I think in a year where they had to really win over some of the fans that they may have lost last year's count that the bandwagon part of the fan base. They just looked at it and set off at it. Same. Oh, missouri. They they can't you know, win a winnable game against a quality opponent. So it kind of it just it shifted the perspective on everything that said, they can they can change that sort of narrative if they win this game Saturday and then go down to Florida with a little bit of confidence. But. It has been strange here. So let's talk about let's say they win. That's five wins. You mentioned Florida Tennessee remaining. What Arkansas getting the schedule? Correct. And then Vanderbilt. Yeah. So there there would be an opportunity. I see I see the path now that a win here could give them a chance to have it. Pretty good year. Yeah. I think was looking for progress. You know, they won seven games that year ago that the schedule this year was tougher when you when you go to do instead of playing at home and pretty obvious looks a lot better now than anybody thought going into the season or even Missouri beat them with a last-second drive. You know, and go into Alabama is tougher ten in any game you can have on the schedule. So I think progress winning eight games in the regular season would be obvious progress for the team anything else. And you're kinda, you know, spinning your wheels a little bit. And when you get quarterback drew lock to come back for a senior year. I think you expect progress you expect to get better, and they still cannot with the games ahead of them. But they've they've gotta take care of business against the teams that they should beat. And right now, I think you can say that's true for Tennessee. Vanderbilt in Arkansas now you've got just two game stretch here now against Kentucky and Florida drew came into the season many believes he could be the top the NFL pick Heisman conversation. Probably muted. But still we all know what he was. And what we expected. How would you this season? So far it's been a little disjointed, and it kinda filed a path of his career. He's played really well in the games where you expect Missouri to win we expect him to play. Well, and then when he is struggled the team has trouble. You didn't have a good game in Alabama. And and by no means the first quarterback to say that I teddy struggled at times against Georgia. And then it's out Carolina in that weird game where they just got hit with a monsoon in the second half. He wasn't at his best either. But then he does what he usually does against the team like Memphis and he bounced back and looked great last week. So you know, he is his career and his perception of his career is very much intertwined without him because he'd be only starting quarterback. Okay. Ever had and berry hasn't beaten a ranked team yet. And neither is drew. So they're both kind of looking for that kind of said that label off of their reputation to get that kind of signature win. And and obviously that would that would be true if he'd be a really. Good defensive team in Kentucky. I mean, there's no people out there. Maybe Missouri fans that I haven't seen Kentucky play this year. They're really good on that side of the ball. So this is a big test for him, Missouri is respected day. But, but you you made a good point about trajectory, and I was talking to one of your colleagues. Oh, I don't know two three weeks ago. And he was concerned about the the projections in the future is especially when it came when it comes to the fans attendance enthusiasm frame all that forest. And maybe what what is it stake here? The rest of the way. Well, you know, things changed in Missouri. A lot in two thousand fifteen when when Gary Pinkel retired you had to the protest on campus, which included the football team that alienate a part of the fan base. I think they lost some seines that year that that maybe they'll never get back. And then it coincided with all of a sudden the program wasn't very good. And they're losing more games than they had been accustomed to to losing under the peak people years. And now you've got this rebuilding stretch with the new AD in a new new head coach, and you've got to win people back, and that's that's harder to do it a program without a great history and a great tradition. When when you're when you're kinda rebuilding Iraq after and that's what they've been doing here. You know, I thought very made a great point this week. And in the subtext was was obvious dec- pointed to what Kentucky is done under Mark stoops the patience. They've they've had with him the resources he's been given the facilities. He's been given. And now you've got a top fifteen program there. So, you know, it's it's not always easy, especially in this conference. When you don't have the kind of resources and the money and the tradition like the teams that you you play most weeks in this league, some kind of an uphill climb in this conference. But they they proved in two thousand thirteen two thousand fourteen they can be competitive, and they can play meaningful games in the month of November in this league. It's just a little bit harder. When you. Have necessarily the same traditions that resources, and as big of a fan base that as at places like Georgia, and Florida and Tennessee was let's end where we began and let's talk about this game. And and I think you you've you've said a couple of times beating ranked team. And then I realized Kentucky is ranked and a loss this weekend and lost next week to Georgia, and they may not be ranked for long, but is that really what's at stake here. Because it just seems like this program is takes a few steps forward goes backwards. Takes a few steps forward. Just they don't seem to make very big steps under berry Odem that that could change or not. I just need to win games. And, you know, whether the rank or not, I think you just need to show progress. And you can't you can't go backwards. That's something that Kentucky. I mean, they've they've always won more games, or at least maintain what they've been doing under stoops Missouri. Can do they can build something here. You just can't. Take steps backward. And especially when you have a do come back. I see new year. So you know, where that new they've got to win this week or go down and upset Florida in the swamp. You gotta show some progress here could you can win seven game. You can win eight games with Missouri schedule without beating ranked team. But these are the kind of wins it, you know, make you can earn a little bit of respect that you might have lost during losing leading recent losing season. So I think they've got enough talent to to win this game. I think they match up. Okay against what Kentucky does sensitively, but they still got to go out there and get it done. What you thought can they get it done this weekend? Well, you have to play really well, you can't turn the ball over against Kentucky defense. You're probably not going to see the ball very often because Kentucky likes to to run it. And you know, long with article drives, I think Missouri can win this game. Will they haven't quite made prediction? But I was trying to cheat. Get get a hell help from you. I I do think they they're kinda do to win a game. Like this. You know that they've been closed and some of these games against better teams ranked opponents they just haven't been able to pull it out. But it's going to be really close. I don't I don't either team really pulling away from the other one Dave great to talk to you. Again. We will see you soon. Okay. Thanks day matter. Great journalists out there and Missouri from the Saint Louis post dispatch talking about the importance of this game. And and and I'm I promise you, I have great respect for Kentucky. But I think it it is an indicator of how far Kentucky has come. When Missouri is now is pointing toward a home game against Kentucky in saying that would be a signature win. That's what they're trying to. They're now trying to emulate Kentucky. You're listening to the Paul finebaum show podcast. William is in merry though. William good afternoon to you. Hello, paul. How are you doing great? Thank you. What before I comment about? Jay's James Carville. Do you have any inside on Tennessee off into Trey Smith and his medical condition in Prague doses? Yeah. We we've heard a little bit about that today. It looks like he he's really struggling is not expected back right now. Well, you know, it's a obviously the young man's healthy is the most important it's a blow to the team. But his health is the most important, and we we certainly wish him. Well, Jim had that story earlier. I just I just hate he has a blood clots in his lungs, which I can tell you is very very serious. This is something they diagnosed William as you know couple of months ago, but it's hard to imagine him coming back soon. Well, I just hope that he you know, he recovers and if it's a chronic situation, then get it under control, regardless of his football future. He's got long life ahead of insured. And certainly that's the most important, but I want to comment on something. I think it's important. And that's James Carville, you know, like. Indicate you, you know, he looks like an ageing reptile and his Johnson or his plan to curse and drink in Ila student's section probably sending the chills through a lot of the students, including some of the coeds. But but I think there's something deeper going on here that really bothers me. And that's that when people like James Carville and others who have called in your show and named individuals including the Commissioner and his staff and impune their integrity without any proof whatsoever. I think that's all on this. I think those two impugning person's reputation and their livelihood and the way they make a living. And I don't think it should be done. You know, I'm a big believer in the first amendment. But there are rules. One of which is is you don't slander people, especially when you're hiding. Behind a, you know, a nickname or a first name. And and you know, obviously, James carbo was stand behind his own name. But I just think that they are remedies. Of Ayla and other than slandering, folks. And I tell you William I don't I mean, first of all anyone who thinks that. I I was blindsided by James Carville is wrong. I know who is have talked to I knew he would he would come in here on fire. But I thought. He would have fun with it being someone from another field coming into ours. Like, I I mean, I've been on morning Joe a number of times including a few weeks ago when they were in Oxford, and we're not going to a political show. I'm not here to talk about politics. I talk about my supposed expertise, but but Carville came in here, and he had fun with the LSU. Alabama situation he could even had fun with the perceived bias. But but but he just couldn't stop in. I think that's the politician in him. He smelled blood. He could hear the natives in Louisiana cheering and high fiving, and he just went over the line. So far that I think he lost all credibility. I leave it. Also, you had another caller that named people at the SEC office well name, and and I just think when you do that to someone but we keep in. We all we're all guilty to degree people read things on. Twitter in they take them as gospel. And I'm not here defending any. I feel like I know you pretty well. I I've been critical of people in that office and in and I try to keep an open mind on any issue, including Alabama and Meyer. My my resume on Hella bama's an open book for anyone who would like to look deep into my past or even as recently as two years ago, but this made up perception or because as someone said something about something on on a web post doesn't make it true. And we had a gentleman the called in earlier, and he talked about all these terrible officiating calls, and I said give me one and he couldn't do it. Couldn't name me one. I could have helped him by the way, I knew three or four that were bad, but he didn't. But he, but he's carrying on a narrative the poll, I have no problem with public debate. I it's part of the the greatness of your show your personality. But I do have applaud them when it moves into challenging people's integrity in their livelihood without any crews and. That's the point. I'm trying to make and I just think it's it's a slippery slope. It shouldn't be allowed should be done. But people can disagree with you in a civil way. Unfortunately, lost a lot of civility in our society. Which is which is very, you know, William I think we've lost almost all of that, frankly because and it will get worse over the next twelve days and no doubt about that. And that's just the way that's the way people role nowadays. It's it's scorched earth, and and again, I'm I'm not going to get into the rest of it. But, but you know, the word tribalism probably overusing college athletics. But it certainly applicable in this case. Well, you know what I'm like good close friends fan. He tends to blame things on play play calling from less mild today, which is almost like the cursive, less miles. But I've never heard him blame any, you know, anything on the -ficiating. And you know, I like I liked what Jimmy flu Pruitt did after the Alabama game, which was young men Allante Taylor. That was thrown out for said. Yeah, he did it right in front of me. And you know, he didn't complain about the call, and I get I just think that personal attacks and and naming people by name and attacking them as an appropriate as as my mentor from your hometown of Memphis told me one time who was a judge in North Carolina. He said, you know, the the problem we have is lot of civility between strangers. And I think we need more civility between between strangers. Well, said always great to talk to you William nice to nice to speak with you. Thanks ball. Thank you very much. Good stuff. Man is looking down through next caller and taking holding my breath, Darryl is next. Wow. No still alive that the ban was probably you're like you like stuck a stick in like a foreign bed. Yeah. Have you feel that? That's what that's been like. Okay. I'm good heavens a lot. I didn't even realize how many members actually hated you. I mean, you catching hate on this too. I mean, I'm like what the hell with only. But it's all good. I just wish people would just lay off the death. Whereas I don't blame that university of Alabama would've really that all claiming beyond redid. But you know, it is what it is Paul. The reason I called in mainly one is talking about George opponents coming weekend. What you think you'll have had had a slight leaning toward Georgia from the beginning of the week as you know, I'm a broken record. I'd like to get down there tomorrow and just get a lay in the land spray was trying to talk me into in the Florida. So I have to listen to him before I make make a final call. But I'm open you got you got any help for me. Well, I mean don't say is Georgia's coming off a loss. Okay. And I think he just just I really don't think your Jolie's about Paul George will tell you right now. Yeah. Georgia we'd football game. But let me say okay about Florida if blow I think Florida loses the Georgia that far to stage now Carolina left. I'll think about it. They went out they go ten and two in his first year. I think that is absolutely exceptional and his bad. If I hate committed. I love CNN because Florida can get back to where they weren't one time torch maintaining back up there that will make that much. You're right. There've been some weeks this year Darrell because of the the Nepta to some of the schools that it's not like it used to be. I agree. I read David Polly. Whoever has the most rushing yards in football game. I believe win the football games that right there with till the sport. Now, I heard Kim calling here yesterday GM because he calling me a nut. He's go at your throat. On Twitter trying to compare fans saying something about game targeting compare that to a caller, you're dying. It's some guy Coney arm. Trying to compare together. That is absolutely not. I mean, that's ridiculous pathetic. Jim, absolutely. No comparison. That's insult to Shane my. I mean, there's no comparison that's the bottom of the barrel to do something like that women over the man dying fan anytime he had a new year coming from. He follow me on Twitter won't be dude. Let me who is he you know, what? I mean. He died at college. His phone because you out it comes to money. Team you d whenever your name is whenever you hide behind. You. You stay is the one he's taking stall in real you ball to listening to Paul finebaum show podcast. We had Daryl minute ago, a rare defection in Jim one time, we're boys and man, I didn't like the sound of that Jim is up next. Hey, jim. I would you say just about Daryl invoice something about Moyes. I didn't hear that. Well, I thought you in Dera were boys. Meaning you guys were friends. We were all until the day. I mean, I got no use anybody like it. I don't see how in the world. You could be so nice to the guy. And and and I just I'm blown by the whole week and and things going on in this world. But you know, I I if you don't give this guy pass. Hey, I'm not gonna say nothing Paul. I know is anybody that calls me, but Betty and calls for a hit on a football player to have his knee gets. Really why? And compared me to him and me, I need to look in the mirror guy is a monster. That's all I can say I will say if you show if you wanna put it like this, and he used to be you would you wouldn't even take the guy's call after what he called for. He made his bad. He's having to sleep in it. That's all I know call. Well, I had some pretty strong comments the other day. Jim I decided to leave it there and turn the page. Try not to harp on things. You know, he's he's he's he's million noth-. He is nut. He's very enough to get some more. Nuts listening. Not what you know. So that's why you do it. I understand. You said he's nutty enough for me to want to let him continue to call to get more. That's that's. It's crazy. Paul, jim. Do you think the show needs anymore? Nuts. Don't try to grass with me fall. I said I'll say I got. Max, we morals, we got all kinds of crazy. People calling this show you here do planet quick even being apart. I'm so sick of this. I'm really Paul. I am I'm this is all because of Darrow. Interrupted. I'm not this kind of guy that wants to be a part of anything this discussion with people like him old here. I'm telling you, that's bad. Guy when everybody else bash team. But after what he said the other day. Have any use for this guy? Then apologize. But what he said. In Jim, you you. You you've never said anything. That was deleterious to someone else. You've never called someone out. You've never made accusations that you didn't you couldn't back? I mean, come on. Jim. Let's let's be in phony about things here. I thought I thought you'd like to keep it. Real listening to Paul finebaum show podcast, Andy. Staples from sports illustrate Andy great to have you on. We have spent in inordinate amount of time talking about Florida, Georgia for good reason. Let's get your thoughts as we say Hello to you. How you doing Paul India? We're doing great. We saw a couple of weeks ago. Where have you been never have hard time keeping up with you anymore? You're so busy doing radio. News journalism magazines online. Yeah. Been buzzing around. I was at Notre Dame earlier this week. And then I did my toe into basketball win sauce this gene in Chicago. So oh, wow. I getting around she's still kicking huh. She's doing great ninety nine years young and still with it and gave the the pre-game prayer their first exhibition game and s the good Lord for w for the ramblers. No, she she had a pretty good record last year. Why why not roll the dice again? That's exactly right. So let's talk Florida Georgia. What's we know? What's at stake? What's going to happen? I have no idea because I don't think we know what the Georgia team is you know, they played one back game Belus. They played some good games against teams that air probably aren't that level. But I I just find it hard believe I see a lot of people just say, oh, well, you know, Jake from had a back game Intel issue, and it just it probably means this team. Just isn't ready. I don't know if that's what it means. At all. I mean, this is a really young team. It's gonna take some time to develop and it's one of those where they've been playing fairly. Well, I mean, the very game there were some issues that popped up, but they still want to touch down. And okay. This is the first chance they've really gotten to see what the flaws were entertained, and then corrective and probably helps that they have by what you correct them. I mean, this is a game. That is the cause they both have that byways beforehand. You seen it affect the teams that go back to five when Clare was in his first year at Florida. You know, the the previous game urban Meyer. Cried at the press conference because they couldn't get the ball over the thirty in the fourth quarter against LSU. And then it during the off week, they just basically scrap their entire offense and rebuilds it scratch, and it was good enough to to keep your down for a couple of any hung on for your life pulled off the upset of, you know, this is one of those with they could be putting together an actions over that that open date that Florida has no idea is coming, and you know, I think when you have the luxury of of Justin field and being able to do some things with him. There's a chance that they might be able to price for him and stuff. Let me ask you about feels because there's been so much give and take and certainly many believe he should have played more against LA shoe. But if you had to envision what we may see from him. What would it be? Maybe a little more, consistent consistency. Given a little more time. I think the way they used to be at Tennessee would probably be. A little more addictive of the way, you'd wanna use them. I don't see. I'm not bailing on Jake from because there's enough of a data set on Jake from the know that. Yes, LSU was the worst game. He played your disorder. But that's not how he always place. You know, it's not how he always good teams with good defense. We alabama. He played pretty well in a pretty, you know, high stakes spot. So I don't think I don't think because Jake from had one bad game against LSU. Does you just you know, throw out the whole Jake from game plan? I think my guess would be he plays a lot better this week, even though he's probably gonna facing pressure. I mean, this is a very good Florida. Defense of line. Gitai polite is is one of the best pass rushers in America. But I I gotta feel in Georgia can adjust this is proven they can adjust pretty well think back last year they their offense was not good. Auburn time. They made shuffling hell, if they did a little fling base, and changes and all of a sudden they play again, and they can't touch from though, I think, you know, we put a little faith in in in his coaching staff to to do something when you got the extra week to do it. And I realize Florida has the same extra week and also very accomplished coaching staff, but I just feel like Georgia. Now, they know what they need to fix and had some fix. I don't think you have to be a genius to to take away from what you're saying. You like George in this game. Don't you? I do I do it. It's a weird series though. Because you think back to really the last I guess a lot of the games in the century where the better team doesn't always win. I mean, go back to two thousand fourteen when basically Florida had all the written the press release about will must have getting fired and porta just throttled Georgia, and it didn't make any sense at all. But that happens sometimes in this game. But I just feel like everybody's selling Georgia to quickly because of that LSU game. And that's why I think they probably they probably do Vance back. I think and be close though. 'cause this Florida team is a lot better than I thought it was going to be at this point season. Before you go. India I realized next week will be primarily about Alabama now as shoe, but this week has been about that as well, especially the targeting, Colin devan wide. We had James Carville in this program LSU fans have been trolling conspiracy theories. I I knew you're a fair minded journalist. What about it? I don't think there's a conspiracy. I really don't I don't like the call. I realized they have the room players. It's a little bit different than the regulatory rule. I I still don't like that. Caller minds me rage. Got thrown out against Mandy in two thousand thirteen. But I don't think I don't think if it was sitting there seven white. I gotta get thrown out of the game. I don't think I really don't. I don't think the guys in the replay boot in the replay command center going, well, this'll make sure Devon white doesn't play in the first hand. It's not how it works. You can make all the conspiracy theories you want and James Carville. We know he's good running campaigns one here. But I just think sometimes calls happen that are not the best calls and sometimes they go against pretty good players. And of course, you know, LSU folks have never. Never stirred the pot down. There have there when it comes to the office third. Paul you have to serve the plot. Otherwise, you will burn crew. You gotta get nice company. Mo- said well done anything else this weekend, you're watching because this is a sleepy weekend as well. As we've seen a couple of these. There's always a shocker on these crazy weekends just like last weekend with with Ohio State going down to Purdue. I don't know where we're the real shocker would be because Notre Dame navy is a game that's been close last couple years. Navy's not that good this year. They only got to play the games only outset cross country trip for both teams. So not really the one in the SEC. That intrigues me. A little bit is Kentucky Mizzou because the line is Mizzou by seven and that feels like a what is Vegas know that we don't game. And and I realized the Terry Wilson completed three passes for eighteen last week, and that won't be good enough against Missouri. But something tells me it's gonna be a little bit better. Through the air for the Wildcats. And then it wasn't gets vandy. But they just don't get any respect at all. And no, here's the deal. Everybody's like, oh, this is the defacto champion Jesse east championship game in Jacksonville. Don't is not 'cause it Kentucky beach, Missouri, Kentucky still control his destiny. Yeah. I mean, listen. If Georgia and Kentucky win this weekend with all due respect to Al ever. It would be an intriguing situation up there. Yeah. Absolutely. And we will talk to you more about the at that time Andy get back to work on the sister Jeanne. I can't wait to read that. All right. Thanks for listening to the Paul finebaum show podcast.

Hard Factor 2/7: FLORIDA MAN FRIDAY!! Monkey Herpes Expert Joins The Show, Bags of Drugs, Taser Breaker Upper, The Geriatric Corner, & The Gators Fight Back Against Pythons

"Would it is Joe Man Randy savage. This factor in there is no one that does it better now. Nobody what he does it better myself. Go ahead tell me something. Right down. Not a rate phone Welcome to another episode. Apart factor presented by Barstool News Network. It is Florida man. Friday having having seven twenty twenty thank you made it made week everybody Kudos to you And we did too. It's been you know a week but yeah no once. The show's over. I just start drinking. Yeah we covered that on the last Friday. It's kind of a problem okay. More on a check out from when the show tonight we are one break and we take full advantage. Let's not pussyfoot around L. A. Top straight into our interview Dr Steve Johnson from the University of Florida about the herpes monkeys were terrorizing the northern part of the state. This is our most requested the story of all time on heart factor. Several barstool people asked us to cover it a ton of listeners. So let's get into the herpes monkeys and real quick will well. Dr Steve Is. He's an expert right. He's he the number one expert in the state of Florida. He's done the number one most amount of interviews about the herpes monkeys. He's so yes. He's her monkey pro cool. Welcome to the show. Biology Professor at the University of Florida a man and who is keyed into the herpes monkey epidemic and North Florida. Dr Steve Johnson Talk Steve. Thanks for coming on the show here yet for having me on. Yeah thank you Dr Johnson So I hear these monkeys they can transmit to you herpes. B which is that worse than just regular run of the mill like Florida herpes. You might get in a nasty beer pong game or is it worse. Were you at a so so anyway. So these monkeys are at the they were introduced to Silver Springs State Park which is in north of Orlando about an hour. Almost one hundred years ago. Now we did some recent research collaborations with one of my Grad students and one of my colleagues he's here at Uf. Dr Samantha wisely and we assessed We had some records from a from a trapper who is legally removing the animals in the past and we looked at his his records because he had to take him to a lab and found out the the number of animals that were quote Ciro positive for this herpes B virus and this is a herpes virus that these rhesus macaques carry. That doesn't really hurt them. But it can be lethal to people. It's convenient for them. Yeah it is convenient for them not so convenient for for us but no this is not like you know your standard. It's sort of Vienna lip. Herpes about cold store. You're talking about. I called those February herpes. Yeah it's hard for me to take herpes. I'm not thinking of the lip understandable but this is much more serious and in a a small percentage of them we know carry it in a little bit smaller percent actually actively actively shed it but the the fear is is that you know that through contact with Monkey was to bite someone or scratch someone that it could transmit this virus iris. We don't know of any cases that ever occurred in the wild world. A Wild Macaque has transmitted the herpes to someone in Florida or elsewhere but it certainly positive positive and it's happening labs lab situations where where the monkeys have been held for research and it's been lethal to some people said they're having been Human to or muggy good human transmission is that because people are wearing protection when they're having monkeys. There's a lot that we don't know about you know the virus and how might be transmitted to humans and there could have been some you know unrig undocumented in cases like where the where the monkeys are native like in India but certainly not in Florida there is no evidence but the this the fear fear is that the the potential is there and the bottom line is. The monkey shouldn't be in Florida. They're not native. They are not native to Florida. They are an introduced invasive. Species going to give you a chance to to hear pats question again. I'm going to rephrase it. A little bit are people making these monkeys or hooking up with these monkeys. I certainly the hope not enough people in Florida to make out with each other. We've got a lot of concern listeners. Alive right I forgot to mention like twenty five of our listeners. Owners like submitted this story. They needed us. That's why we have you on the expert advice to on Valentine's Day date a human primate not a non I ah Johnson cannot can. Can this virus be transmitted from monkeys to pets or companions as Peter Likes to call them And if if if a if a monkey bites dog or a cat can that dog or cat then transfer it to its owner or companion would have to say I. I don't know I'm I'm a wildlife ecologist. My colleague was Disease Ecology. She might can answer that I would have to defer her. I don't know geography when you're out in the field are. Are you looking very closely at the upper lip to these monkeys or the genitals these monkeys to identify whether or not you should be handling them with gloves or just avoiding them altogether. Maybe dating someone else. Avoid them we try to avoid them altogether but No we're not. I don't know that there's any outward signs of this but No I don't I don't handle the monkeys we we didn't pass for some research research. Do not do that anymore. And I would discourage anybody from approaching one of these monkeys if they were to see it. If you're out on the Silver River Canoeing kayaking and you see the monkeys. Don't feed them. It is allegance state law. Hold on Doug Ducey. What if you already have herpes though? Like because I feel like I still ill advised to remember this is the upgraded version nine not just lip. Herpes need to clarify that. I have a question. Don't make out with one of these monkeys. Don't don't get. Don't get involved with one you know. I should be more worried about corona virus or monkey herpes. Because right. Now it's both. I only have enough room in my brain to freak out about one of them. I'd probably they say that. The Corona virus is a little more of a concern from from my perspective. I'm here again you can. You can avoid this herpes virus by just not messing and with these monkeys or a program. It's hard to do. That's really hard to do Dr Steven Them. It's really hard to do you know that. They're cute Dr Steve. Leave your twinkies at home and don't take them in your boat. Don't bring any throat to the monkeys if you're on the river and then if this this one. That's been seen in Jacksonville. You know pull on your bird. feeders mentioned bird. Feed it or not freaks me out because if these monkeys start fucking with birds and transferred to the birds we all know about bird flu and shit like that. That's not good. Yeah just bad. They shouldn't be in Florida. They should be out wild. But so you guys used to call the monkeys from eighty four to twelve. So are you going to bring back calling it. These sound like it's no problem y'all is it's not me state of Florida. That was the state we can. We clip you saying for the record that you'll start calling again so we can send it to pita it. Dr Johnson. What do you think about the idea of? What do you think about the idea of maybe bringing in pythons to take care of the monkeys or having a monkey bowl similar similar to the python bowl and having a bunch of rednecks go in there and fight fight fight? The monkeys very much abated question on the first part of that with climate change. If we just wait a couple years maybe the pythons you're GONNA get up here on their own ways. We know through advanced wall though. Dr Steve That on there I am not monkey. Dr Steve You guys said the monkey probably herpes in Jacksonville. It's runamuck have you. Guys talked talked about passing up down there. No there's been no no no talk between you me me and the monkey as Floridian. I just know that is a big thing down there I just was curious guys run amok. It's all over the news. I don't know if he has thinking about Pasadena. THOUGHT ABOUT POSS- no-one's contact you and thought I'll Op put it on the on the thing about to do cal Dr Johnson. I know that this group of monkeys have one male leader here. Is there just one single male that runs all of these monkeys in silver spring. And if so what's his name and what the like funny. You mentioned that so the pass on my students was doing her work. There were five different. Groups consisted of a dominant male And then some younger males and then ah you know his sort of Harem of females and their young and my student actually had named some of these monkeys like she had one that was called Cong- she had another dude. She called cheeks because they were recognizable recognizable and that helped her keep track of her her groups one of them king. Happy or you know. No and she did have she did have a female that she really likes you. In Kalihi you could name. You could name one of them. Hermes the Greek God. But it's a play on herpes. Everyone gets it right. He's not the monkees not embarrassed because he thinks his. Name's Amy Hermes but we all know would join a monkey population monitoring in silver springs. I'M GONNA write that down we'll anymore than is emails but there is a dominant male. Well that leads this group you know. And they're separate groups that are there. They maintain a territory and Yeah so that's just their social structures. Probably call that guy are they. Are they in all seriousness. Business outside of the Herbie's which look again. Some people have not a big deal if you got it so cool because you can't get it twice. Are these guys dangerous at all in terms of so you know if you came across one outside of being afraid of herpes. Could they kill you. I don't know that they could kill you but they could really mess up your day if they would physically attack you in a male. We'll protect his his his his his hair more his his turf and they're strong they. Have you know big. Canine teeth and they can be aggressive lots of times. They'll bluff before they will will do anything but advises if you're on the river you get one of these big males as down at the edge looking at you. Don't look at him in the eye. That's assigned question. What if you're flaring up with herpes? Will they leave you alone. Aw I doubt I kinda doubt it you know and you might think to the Alpha but if you run across one of these you know these big meals out there he might sound you. Change your mind you might to stockton level. Might take a bit of a dive outfit though. I think that's a good idea that you should pass out fake little herpes alone alone outside the town across my mind so far there's been a lot of just immigration with these animals. It seems like the pythons from Burma. These monkeys from God knows where not America is is a is a mecca for introduced produced animals. We have the global epicenter for introduce reptiles and most of them come in through the pet trade. We have now three times as many non native establish tablet breeding species of lizard than we do native lizards. You know why is that. Why is that Dr Steve that? Why is that? Dr Steve. Well people love of their pets. Pets exotic pet industry is really really a really big industry. Blame any of this on Disney. You said it's an hour north of Orlando could. Can we blame this on the Animal Kingdom at Disney world world. I wish I could comment in a in a creative way about that. But I'm just GONNA stop and say no but I don't know I think Disney's probably pretty responsible when it comes to their animals getting out. Well doctor it just okay in this case these are these are these outsiders affecting American born. Animals naturalized AmeriCorps animals. Now we don't know about the about the monkeys but I can tell you there's been a lot of good research that's been done in the everglades about the pythons and yes. They're causing declines of of of native species of mammals like like Bob Cats and raccoons these Amis so-called Mizuho Mammals rabbits. Things like that so the Burmese pythons are definitely having some pretty significant ecological impacts in in the everglades. Would you say that. They're taking the jobs of American animals. You know what that's an interesting point there they I don't. They're taking the jobs but if you think about it now the pythons are the top Predator in the everglades which that Roy used to be played by the American alligator you know and it still l.. Is that for so so you know we need to. We need to start giving when you start giving royds to the gators. Yes a bigger and stronger so they can kill all all of these invasive methods we do have a story on today's show where there is a video of of an American gator eating amid amid side Burmese Python. That was that's cool. Yeah Yeah that happens pretty regularly Dr Steven Question. What's your favorite animal Let's see well. It is my favorite. I'm I'M GONNA go with Burton's legless lizard. It's a really cool cool Snake looking thing that lives in Australia. That's what I wanted to hear. Okay I've heard of the legless lizard never never mind. That was great right. Thank you so much for doing that. We really appreciate it are have you been to all right. That was awesome awesome. Thank you Dr Steve. We're probably going to get him back on the show. Because as he said reptiles and stuff for his forte guess what that happens a lot of Florida and Friday. Now let's get into the lightning round. There's going to be eligible lightning bolt and I do not apologize for parks real quick real quick. I even changed my bulb to a jungle theme. Notice that for this show for Dr Steve Young Bull Slash Reptile cars and it looks good. I love doctors looks good. We'll add as I mentioned in the interview if we didn't shop that part out as promised. I M winning off the lightning round with the story that warm the heart Doctor Steve and apparently of lot a lot of Floridians and that is that the prize defacto state animal. The American alligator was caught on film eating the invasive Burmese Python back. What an awesome video technically their state dog so that once before companion? Excuse me yeah. AH The video was posted Sunday on the everglades national parks twitter. So take that pita. They're really proud of this video. And it's pretty incredible. The gator is about seven feet long and the python is about dead feet long. So they're why they proud of it. I liked it. They're proud of it because they hate the pythons. They're they're eating like the raccoons the animal. The all the animals out there that we're doing finding everglades are all getting killed off. They caters to baby. Gators don't fuck and say that don't say that so they're in a struggle against against each other. Yes the gator was the Apex Predator out there in the everglades and now it's kind of a fight and the gators that's their natural habitat and everyone else was out there living fine and now the pythons John's out there killing off all the creatures. So you're saying that this is like a win a huge win for America. It's absolutely a huge win for Florida. which makes it a huge win for America? America was the American the American alligator. Yes the American Floridian allegation. You're telling me that the fucking American alligator could potentially be unharmed by these no. I'm not telling you that I'm telling you that. No let's let's continue the gator. The gators are fighting back. That's what I'm saying. I'm going to go ahead and I'M GONNA go ahead. And in fact will and proclaim claim a victory for Florida with a team of insane Alpha male python hunters and alligators. Those those teamed up alligators in the Python hunters to beat the python. I found the battle will continue. But it's only a matter of time before the mega powers as I like to call them. It's like Hogan and Macho man and the prime in a handicap match versus Jake. The snake we know he's going to win. USA Essay you say exactly talking on the outside. Just cheering them on and then as soon as jake. The snake is done and he's been dispatched. Then they got to go back to hating each other. The Python Don Hunters in the gators. Was it Macho Macho King though. Not at that time no no. He was macho king for awhile but I think when he was on the mega powers. 'cause I don't think he was Macho King. Can we take a real quick motorcyles for much. Rip Thanks. Let's take Internet pundits and Florida just to show show you how serious they are about this Jesse Ray Atkins says it's about time we got some hope for our beloved everglades. I hope the gators find them a delicious meal so there you know who wants the gators to be more pythons clearly. He's he's pro gator. Yeah absolutely they. All are philosophical flirty and says great video exclamation point only weigh a python would ever get one of our boys West. See they're not harming them is pure luck and they will. They will both beginning down. What's this Meanwhile I'm sure the gators eat them daily so if they ever get eaten by a python as pure luck they're caught napping but the gators are always eating these pythons now from what I've seen but okay and last one little word about really. What do you think the gators were getting out? Fox Buys biathlons knives. I've seen videos of like pythons with gators inside of their your body's pry. We don't talk about that on the Florida pride. You're more win. If you want to win a battle you need to know the Real Truth Avenue. That's a real. I don't think so. I don't think it's true. And last one is from tiny and mighty who says I love the fucking Florida gators. She might have been talking about at the university and the football team but points still means thirsty comment but well we'll we'll say she's talking about the the American American alligator. That's what she say she. She should've said American gators. All right all right. She's okay. Let's take it over to the geriatric corner all right.

You're talking about joining states so much history in the game road your your floor. Passion. Pageantry Neutra side a lot of energy to gain insides a lot of featuring issues east most years hopperton, it'd be to stay in first place in the SEC keep playoff hopes alive, and in SEC championship hopes definitely well with your one hundred percent if you don't, but you probably are certainly know that anybody can beat anybody every game is his game. Indeed, it is to new Brie coaches. The young breeds in this game. Interesting Jackson, photos that versus Rick and urban. But that's not the only game going on this Saturday. There are few other ones in berry owed him. He's a fan with Bob stoops has done. Now, we're kind of stay on that. Very good football team. I have a lot of respect for. And I really think varies a great job. And one thing. I really noticed admire football team. They play hard. They played tough. They're motivated in their hungry challenge. It waits on us opportunity on Saturday in a great Kentucky team and the way that they've played six and one their six one four reason they run the ball street. Well, and they play great defense. You'd better be very conscious of running because they put a lot of pressure on your with the running game Baxter. Very very talented, and that sets up there are peo- gives him some space. Football should be a great atmosphere. Guys are excited about having a chance plant home and against a one of the one of the best teams in the country right now. Okay. So a lot there for Mark stoops and berry Odem two coaches Saturday. But what about the game next week in order on breaking news, Nick Sabin? We'll go down as the greatest coach in history of the game. Thank you had. Alabama's always been. The biz more co same is done a fantastic job. You'll go down to the greatest college football coach in the history of the game. So give him the credit. What they've done it out Obama. Okay. Well, thank you go ch and you'll be the greatest coach LSU history. If you beat him next week or Lille be well on your way to being that. So here we are on a -ther Thursday afternoon. We have got these Spurrier. He is the greatest coach in Florida history. Bad dilly. Maybe the greatest beat reporter in Florida history certainly longer than anyone else. They matter. Saint Louis and Andy Staples. Refers your calls eight five to four to seven to eight five. I'm just wild about Harry, and Harry is New Orleans. Hey, paul. I'm going to defer question today to my granddaughter who thinks you should leave the next week. Also. Anyway, she asked me will you please. This miss the poll, his his ideas on she wants to break in one day, hopefully as a sports television person, and she wonders whether you think it would still be helpful to get journalism degree fall. I. I think a journalism slash communications degree is helpful. It may not be a sensual. But sometimes it it will help enable you Harry, and I would recommend that. I think the most important thing any young person can ascertain in in this field. Or maybe any other field is experience and the more in the more vast experience that you can get will help position you by meeting people and by being around those who make those type of decisions, so yeah, I think it would help ball and I'm taping. This I'm gonna let high here your advice for self. But I really Harry's anything I could ever do to to offer to her talk to her. I'd be more than happy to. That's a great weekend and up this week count SPF ESPN, Paul, thanks. Appreciate it. Thanks a lot. Good to hear from you. Matt is also in New Orleans mad. Good afternoon. Welcome to the program. How are you? Thank you very much. Not to apologize for our Bill but to be an apologist for him. Okay. Now, you know, very well because you're in a Telit being well educated thoughtful, the James Carville uses hyperbole exaggeration to get a point across to to make a splash to spread awareness. And that is exactly what he was doing. You're hanging onto his comment about Saudi Arabia, though, even serious about it when you know, very, well, it was his point was to get into the imagination of people and caused into think about a problem, which we have and the problem is the perception of bias in the southeastern conference fall. We tried for years and years to get this problem address. No, one has data ten which problem is that by the way, the problem is the as you well know, there is a need in any officiating or judging for not only integrity propriety, but that the appearance. No why. Spread understanding or belief that it's prejudiced or by their anything widespread belief on many fan bases that -ficiating in the southeastern competence is prone to Bama by you know. And I know it does it matter. If it's true the perception is there, and it's real which calls into question, the integrity of the cough. Nepal. We tried for years to address this. No one's list. It's time to go. A Sinatra mad how how have you tried to address this in what what means? Letters to the cop complaints to the athlete directors complaints to the SEC everything we could do get attention to the issue and to be asked to questionable. Do you believe that there is a real perception of bias among the fan of certain suits? And I do not you do not believe that that there's a significant number of people that go to LSU or offer or other schools in the southeastern conference who believe that the officiating biased, not a majority of people know, there may be scattered fans from every every walk of the conference. But I listen, I one these waters every day, and until this week I had not heard this issue raised in a very long time. Well, Paul it's there it's raised every year. We went in twenty two hours from concepts of billboards in Birmingham. But answer me this mad pearly game is great. But outside of what we saw Saturday against Mississippi State. When was the last major controversy involving LSU in the SEC officiating every year. No, no, don't don't give me generic give me a specific example you through saying there is a preponderance of thought you can't even give me one other example, because this is a red herring. This is a a non-starter. This is a bunch of BS agree with me, Paul. No. I'm still waiting for you to answer. My question. Call there are numerous examples and you wind. Okay. I don't I don't want numerous I want a single example from you outside of last weekend of the last time. Time LSU had a major beef about officiating with the southeastern conference every year. It's no who called the bottom line. Bottom line. Is that you cannot answer the question because you're full of it. Sorry had to tell the truth here because it's tell the truth Thursday. We'll take short break. Steve Spurrier who also tells the truth this coming up next listening to Paul finebaum show podcast Walker back to our program. Glad you're with us on a Thursday afternoon. Yeah. Well, you think about Florida Georgia? It's hard to think about the next guest. He, of course is the radius. Brought to you by Holiday Inn express needs freer. Joining us always great to talk to the coach coach good afternoon to you. And I can imagine no matter how many times even countered this game always has a special feeling good afternoon. Yeah. I'm really looking forward to watching this one. I can't remember when teams were pretty Daniel six and one and pretty much got gotta shot at eastern division. Whoever wins it although Kentucky is still in the mix. And of course, if Kentucky wins out in. But anyway, there's a lot homeland this year at this coach someone who who played in it and coached in it. I've I've this is not something that I'm dab too. Because I I never really participated in this game until recently. But what makes this so important our special? Historically is still the biggest name the Florida Gators play. Georgia's got so many robberies. I don't know if they would say this one or all burner, Georgia Tech or whoever they say. But I think for Florida in SEC is the Georgia BULLDOGS and then outside maybe half issue something like that. But historically is, you know, Paul Georgia used to beat us. Oh, what eighty percent seventy five eighty percent of the time. And I was victim of that. Also got beat two out of three years three in years at Florida before in nineteen ninety when got tennis to coach against him. I had a lot better team than they had. And we started reverse the psychology of the Gatabo the game in Florida and the Gators went onto good run after that. We had buddy Martin on the other day. And he always mentioned you liking the game in in Florida. And I know this game has been there for a million years. But was there ever a serious conversation about taking it back the campus? Paul when I got hired here. Some of the big Gators former das- here and so forth with administration. Steve we can't beat Georgia in Jacksonville. We need to go home and home with them doing Vadim half the time. And I just said, wait a minute. The games in Jacksonville, Florida in a place called the gator bowl back. Then we get on the bus. They have to fly down if that's more like a home game. I don't know. What is it? The Clinton playing Georgia in Atlanta every year in a stadium called the bulldog bowl. Now, we say, hey, no way, we're going to do that. Well, that's what they do. But they've been kicking Bush so many years they have a fun time doing it. So they're gonna keep coming as always bigness down here. But we we got a chance to reverse this thing because the first couple of years, we just had a whole lot better team than them. And then the third year we were actually enter dogs, but it was probably my favorite win of all of them. We'd twenty six twenty four and that was that was a real good when I was. The first year of division play and that day, South Carolina three upset Tennessee beat them like twenty five twenty four and we Georgia twenty six twenty four. So that was my son. My most fun bus ride today fall. I bet talking to coach spare your coach let's let me ask you about the the Gators this year because we wondered about the quarterback situation in the off season. We're not wondering anymore. Your your your comments on Philippa and the job. He's done. So far. Taking care of the ball much much better than last year. And we we've always had pretty good players now down here at Florida. The offense has really been in that the last three years, I think coach mcelwain offense was one hundred twelve hundred and fourteen hundred sixteen that's easy to remember the last three years, and Dan Mullen and his staff they got a good sound offense run pass. But we I don't think we need throw forty five times a game. We need to keep it around twenty five to thirty. Let those running backs go and play did defense and defence itali- here. The first two games, CC Jefferson, David Reese, too key defensive players didn't quite and now they're back. And I really think that is completely picked up the defense and offense running backs or a really good hard runners. So this team's different after that Kentucky loss. Everybody's sort of waiting for the Gators. I think they learn how to practice better and. I think we got a real good team. Good chance to win this Saturday. I'm get your assessment of the other side because Georgia with all the expectations that come with being the national runner up. Just seems like they've struggled a little bit certainly lost in Baton Rouge. That's not uncommon the your assessment of the dogs, especially starting with Jim. Very good early in the season as we know. And I guess they sputtered around a little bit is still seem to win through some special team play and stuff like that. Yeah. Their offense hasn't been going just up and down the field. But when you Georgy you still got to think of those running backs. That's that's in their history running ball up and down the field. So if we stop the run that gives us a lot better chance whether or not Jake from or feels those guys around successfully we'll have to find out. But I think key always to be those guys you guys got to stop the run. Let me get a couple of thoughts about about some other teams in the league star with Alabama. We're down Auburn couple of weeks ago and Pat dye joined us, and of course, he was on coach Bryan staff as you remember? And he said he thought to oh was was better at this point of his career than than Namus or Kenny stabler quarterbacks of your era. I I know we're always grasping for straws trying to compare but mature assessment of two as he is going into the second half of the season. Yeah. He is a beautiful passer. Everybody agrees with that. And he knows how to look off gas and let it go. He's got a quick release. And he seems pretty doggone smart back there. Also, they're big games are coming out tell everybody, you know, season. We're just to one game over halfway or so and everything's to be determined. You know, who's gonna win divisions his win SEC's, and and so forth. So at the halfway or look past halfway point. There's a lot of teams out there. But certainly Ella. Bama. Looks like far the best. But they got some big games coming. So I'm sure L S. You look forward to that one. What next week I guess Bama and on the LSU game coach big conversation this week about Devon white missing the first half. There have been call out. Call after call from LSU fans, not happy about the officiating. Some even claiming bias in the SEC office. Bring up the L. LSU Florida robbery, which many have brought up can you? Can you help us understand because you coach the coach against 'cause they had to coach against you too. But was there ever a move to change that once we went to division play? Florida LSU game. Yes, go. Yeah. Gela livre talked about it. And you know, really sort of made sense rotate around the other division when they first did it we had Auburn and LSU at Florida to you know, to really pretty good rival teams. Heck when I played the sixties we played both those guys every year, so sort of natural I guess to keep playing them. But now, we don't play Auburn at all. I think once every ten years or something like that. But yeah, Joe Lee said, hey, you know, how we plan Florida every year, we ought to be playing Vanderbilt, you know, how can a Mississippi State just play Vanderbilt every year. We don't get to have had a point and sometimes life in fair. But I think just the way it is right now. But the on top of that the allegation seem to be about bias with -ficiating you've dealt with the SEC as as a coach at two different schools. Do you think that's a fair allegation by some LSU people that that? That Alabama gets the better end of the deal. Oh, we joke around about it a little bit that the league office. You know was in Birmingham and Commissioner Kramer, put the SEC championship game right there in Birmingham. The first two years. I think I think fairly everybody said, you know, Atlanta's a pretty good spot at their commitment. We need to not play when Alabama's home feels historically. So they got it moved up there. But I don't know. It's Alabama wins it so much. They look for anything to try to criticize. I guess finally let's get back to Jacksonville this weekend. And I realized which side you're on. But if you had to pick one part of the game that you think will determine the outcome. Where would you point? Oh, I always say whoever plays the best Paul in. Oh football. Where such an interesting sport. So some days one team really plays. Well, mex- play next third downs. Some some day. They can't make one they score touchdowns. Instead of having to kick field goals in the red zone. It could easily come down to that. If one team plays really really good red zone defense forces to three field goes. And maybe only one touchdown at two good San right there. So I I don't know. I just I just think the team that plays the best place most complete, you know, full game will probably be the winter house that that's that. That's exactly what I would say. Pretty much the truth, right? There really is is one of those boxes are checked that that's the difference. Well, coach always good just catch up. Thank you for joining us. Thanks for calling Paul Tokyo later on the bed. Si Spurrier dropping some serious knowledge on there about how the games are one. We will take a break. Pat, dilly, hang down your head, Pat, dilly. He'll be with us next more of your calls after that as we continue here on Thursday. Listening to the Paul finebaum show podcast. I can't believe it. That Philip brought his little brother on our mission into orbit Callan until they get their alarm get there. I'll get there. Now. I can't believe how easy it was to save hundreds of dollars on my car insurance with gyco. What's this button? Do what's this button? Do what's best button-down? Believe that. Geico could save you fifteen percent or more on car insurance. We are back on the program, and we just got through talking to the HVAC. And now brought to you by holiday express. Who isn't brought to you about holidays for us be the radius had do joining us. Pat, always great to catch up. It's hard to imagine hard to believe a year ago today. Final rights were being or core close to being administered to Jim mcelwain and the Florida program has a pulse again good afternoon. Yep. Here from you. Yeah. It is. We've been talking about that a lot this week. Just that in the player talked about it. They didn't really talk about it last year after it happened. But that they that morning. They were they were listening because mcelwain tell them and talk to him and never said he was getting fired. But indicated he was and they will or worried about their assistant coaches that, you know, their physician coaches and they wanted to the game like Dombi he saw twenty one nothing like seven point eight. Hey, never recovered from that. But yeah, totally different five atmosphere about this game. Now, you have to temper fix time ever. Let's talk about the Gators here. We know about the early part of the season, but they've made up for that big win. Of course, it stayed and obviously against LSU, Pat. You're your longtime veteran watching Florida teams, look good. And maybe not always finish. Is this team built to finish the? Season. Well. Well, I think they are physically. I think the job Nick savage did in the Aussies certainly showing up. You think your injury seeing teams that a team that's really been pretty good before quarter of of some tough games and physically held up. So yeah. And I think off we came at a good time, obviously feels the same way. But you know, I mean, these are there's only one gimme left that the big thing to me Paul is that their floor is in is pretty darn good. I mean, the worst they can do seven at five, and nobody would be really thrilled with that. But I think one of the year, you know, people seventy five was not the worst thing in the world editor for seven. So, but that's the worst. They can do it. That means they lose this game. They lose to Missouri, South Carolina at home. And then they lose to Florida state, which I don't think for the happen. If you had to pick a specific area where this season has turned. And we're the coaching staff perhaps made the right call. Where would it be? Well, you know, I think more than anything it's been that that they have been able to get these guys understand. And I think it took a while. And maybe it was in starkville or this team finally grasp. But hey, the coaching staff knows how to win the game. They know what they're doing. And if you just do what we're telling you to do you're going to be fine where you're going to win games. And you know, there's no question that the game out there, which was loud as I've ever heard hyped up and everything and even though they didn't play great offense. They found a way to win that game. I think that's the kind of you know, coaches know, what they're talking about. And it's been carried over I think the following week with LSU talking to pad duly. Let's let's talk about mall in for a second pad because we knew he was good coach we knew his pedigree. But did you think as you alluded to a minute ago? It would be this quick. Well, I they're still not a great team, Paul. They're they're a really good thing. Like a lot of lot of our conference and he found ways to win games. I think he's gotten the most out of. And I think I think the the most impressive thing he's done hasn't been calling plays or or offense or anything like that. It is that the way he's gotten guys to buy in Nollie Divi in. But getting the fans I mentioned this before bringing the fans under the ten again. I mean, they were pushed out of the tent by the previous codes. And this guy's brought them into the tent made them feel like they're part of it again. I think that's that's certainly has been a plus the team is still has a lot of laws, and and but they they play hard. And that's all you can really ask, you know. I think the talent gap between them and in Georgia. I think a lot of thought it was a lot bigger than it was then it's turned out that the because we. You were kind of looking at what Georgia done. I think it I think doors it's still got a little bit better players. But I thought they had a lot that are players with these. Let me stay right there. Because a lot of people felt the same thing that this Georgia team was was going to row as you watch this league and with your experience as a as an observer what what what's your Cessna Georgia, and they still have a good record. And they may end up doing what we thought they would do. But they just haven't seen quite as good. Why not? Yeah. You know, I really my theory was going through the their early part of the season that they were bored. And they were just waiting for the the big gains in the first big name came, and they got whacks. So it's it's kind of interesting that it still big win this game. And as you know, the offered is quite the formidable foe that we thought they were going to be at the end of the season and then end up right back in Atlanta with a chance to Alabama or LSU, I guess technically and go to the college football playoff. And I still think they're good enough to do that. But I think they've had, you know, look the players say loss or so good. And so an an an experience. I mean, they lost to starting running backs in the NFL and that number teams ever have that let alone have to on the same team. And I think that was a factor. I think I'm not sure that the Jake from Justin feels ING isn't an issue. I guess maybe we'll know a little bit more the season goes along. But, you know, maybe he's creeping over shoulder peaking over shoulder or maybe not maybe we're making too much of that. And their offense of line has played the the biggest tomato call on. I think you would agree with this is when I look at the numbers there last I think in the SEC at Saks and that that's that. That's a mate for Georgia with talent they have to be last. No doubt as we close up here. Pat paint a picture of this game for us. What should we watch for? What should we look for? And how do you think it it flows? Well, I think the biggest thing is this game. Always seems to come down to guys teams making mistakes and then turnovers happened. And then all of a sudden teams short field and also momentum going one way instead of the other. You know, you can always say well, the Tina runs for the most wins the game might thing is always been what the team runs for the most. Because they got the league. That's why the run the ball. But you know, I think the key Florida is going to be not to have those turnovers to be able to grind it out. 'cause Georgia is actually Lisa the nation and fewest plays over twenty yards. That tells me that they're they're backing up a little bit there. They're playing a little bit softer coverages. And they're letting you kind of if you're willing to take it five and six years at a time. And that's what Florida's done only. So they've got to kind of stay with that game plan. But the fast thing thing to me Paul more than anything is how these coaches call this game because they both had a week off. Sometimes there's over over thinking through it. Sometimes they over manage like they Roberts is right now with the and you end up with guys out, of empathy. Classic was when Mark decided to start a con outta in that I still can't believe that happen on harassment to ended up going to elegance floor or against Gordon. So, but I think it's the number one key is going to be turned up. You know, just not whoever whoever wins that battle. I would I would bet would win the day. That many thanks always good to catch up. We will see soon. All right. Great talking to you about Pat. One of the best ever covers the Gators and has for couple years, we will take a break to to Florida greats Dewey and sprayer who said team the plays. The best will win to listening to Paul finebaum show podcast. Welcome back to the program. We are glad you're here. And certainly number of interesting interviews with Pat Dooley. And of course, coach coach, Barry, let's grab some phone calls here in eight five five to four two seven two eight five and head to Saint Petersburg. And Mark Mark, Mark. Oh, how there? How are you? I'm doing well, thanks for the call call. I appreciate you taking my call, sir. Hey, I just wanted to revisit with HPC. You know, I think he's one of the greatest coaches of all time. I just you know, he'll, but he did, you know, going into do concern them into a champion conference champion and showing up on the campus of Florida and doing the things that he did they I mean, you know, I mean, I lo- coach same and don't get me wrong. I mean, the guy is that definite organizer. And he's a he's a great coach wouldn't ever try to say, he's not. However, he never really stepped into a spot that he ended turned completely around like oh spared. And I you know, I just I just oppose respect for the guy. I I'm gear. So he stands to reason. And, but you know, I admire Alabama and co saving, but I I do kinda feel like teams in that western division Amnon already complex like LSU thinking that the he is he against them and all this. And that I think is silly thing. I heard that that's about it all and I just want to let you know, how much we enjoy down here more. Thank you very much. Appreciate the call. Good to hear from you Taylor in Tennessee. You're on the air go right ahead Taylor out. Hey, paul. I actually was your last caller last night. How are you? I am doing glad you came back. Yeah. Absolutely. So real quick before. I before I get my question just to follow up. I know you were talking to Matt from New Orleans earlier. I just wanted to make a statement. I think that the. Issue with LSU fans, including myself is that look expectation every year, we don't it doesn't matter. If we've lost three games for the Bama game. It doesn't matter feed it the expectations to beat Alabama. That's all we want is banned. Obviously, we'd rather be undefeated. But you know, there's a lot of ocean going into that though losing Devon white for the first half, and obviously being blown. But at the end of the day, the defense hasn't even our struggle. We've got guys that can cover that vision. Patrick queens phenomenal like offense relic. Hugh's been a struggle for years now. So I don't know why it become this big of a deal, but just want to make that statement, and I don't feel like LSU fans of overly complained in your path. But but moving onto my question, Paul as I look at the teams that year, there's a lot of one loss team that are very talented very good on. And then there seemed like LSU who may finish into somewhere in that area. But have arguably the number one. Substantial. So it's not been discussing a long time. And I'd like to get your take of the pros and cons of an eighteen playoff. And would that make things competitive would it increase recruiting or Taylor there? There are some I have some friends who say that. It's an absolute I I am I'm in favor of sixteen playoff because that way you give one into a by and in. I think six is in my mind enough. My argument against eight is the super teams are going to just sleep off their way through the end of the year. I mean, if let's say Alabama, for example with an eighteen playoff. What left? Do they have to prove? They will be in the they could lose LSU and went out there in they could beat LSU and lose the SEC championship game in bien. So I think that may be too much. I'm not opposed to it. I am post. What we have now in partly because the people that run college football. It's so perfect. I don't think it's at perfect. It's better than it was. But it's not perfect. I think I think by adding more you you make the season more interesting so six or eight is fine with me as long as we can figure out how to do it. I think there's plenty of time. College football waste the month of December as you know. The the weekend after the championship game is the army navy game. And I think that's an important game. But that's the only game you could possibly use that weekend when you get into Christmas, you you are playing with a little a little bit of fire, but you could extend it a little bit. I mean there there are there are many ways to do it. You could start the season earlier the the last weekend and August is fine with me if we start the season, then so I think they're excuses are are week. So I'm I'm partially in agreement with you. But I'm totally in agreement that we need more than we have. Yeah. I agree with that on so not just from the competitive Dame point. But you know, I was talking to my wife yesterday. What does this do for the university on your selling more ticket? You're you're building high around your fan base thing. You're also allowing these recruit the not look at it and say, I only want to choose from these top four Cain. No. You're right injury. Banding it'd be on that and that the comes more competitive which in turn makes the whole league in Taylor. I think college football has a problem, and I know a on a program like this. You don't see it? But when I'm in New York, which I am every week with people that don't know anything about college football don't care. They only look at the tree top issues. They they look at save. And they look at Harbaugh they look at urban. They don't see what's underneath that. And I think that that hurts the overall perception of the game now that the NBA exhibition games are outranking some college football game. So college football needs. It needs a shot in the arm and needs an adrenalin. Pomp, and I'm really interested. As we start to move toward the most important part of the year to hear what college football leaders have to say, I'm willing to bet you the next Tuesday night. The chairman of the college football playoff committee will have you convinced that there's nothing better and everything's perfect. And they've just spent forty eight hours going through their ipads, looking at film. But it's still an imperfect situation. It's not as disastrous as some of the fly in the guy say it is. But it still can be better. Yep. I agree with you. You can't tell that to, you know, the Penn State and stuff the last year with fake wha Markley Andy stack teams that probably could have competed with the four just fine. No. I mean, look at twenty fifteen I still think state may have had the best team in the country. They lost Michigan state left out. They would have been in in six or eight. Hey, thank you more to come.

Hour 1: Matt Baker and the shakeups in Florida

"Dead More Time to listen to yours truly by going to shell and getting things done at once I fill up with Shell v power plus then save up with the fuel rewards program finally, snack up to save even more at the pump make the most of the stop you need to make with Shell. Cried Passion and pattern tree of college football leaves here the Paul Finebaum show our one podcast. Good afternoon we appreciate you joining us and we are here for the next four hours. And in the middle of the week of week, five of the SEC season, there's quite a bit going on and what start from headlines from the bayou where. You've heard about this for awhile. But today we see it. Lsu. Has Self imposed penalties and has banned. Odell Beckham Junior from the facilities. For two years remember that incident a couple years ago. It wasn't that stuff couple months ago after the national championship game. Robert Munson. The senior ad says Lsu has worked proactively in cooperation with against to identify and self report any violations that occurred within our program. We believe these self imposed penalties are appropriate and we will continue to coordinate and cooperate. With the NCWA so that's coming out of Baton Rouge. It's not the only one with lsu back on the field this weekend after missing last week because of covert against Florida. It always you're on talking about who will be the quarterback. Coach Oh We don't think that miles burn is going to be able to play still not. Odd percent yet, but he's very questionable maximum TJ look very good in practice. Will make a decision at the end of the week when I was GonNa Change All as we get the same offense or we do run in the same place nothing changed much of go because that's what they've been running. I am no problem starting either one whatever whatever want us to be it's going to be very close and and more than likely both play. So. What are we talking about here? We're talking about two young men Finley Johnson, both freshmen both. Kids both pocket passers. Both highly regarded. And South Carolina's going we like to look to this. Meanwhile nobody likes to look what's going on in Gainesville. More problems. Coach Mullen out other assistance out. And the facilities will remain closed until Monday because of covid nineteen. Remember, they had to miss a game. Rearranged some games. And we're hoping You can only hope that by Monday things have quieted down. Game next week and then Georgia is coming up me while curb. SMART. As only Kirby smart can do. I feel great about Stetson Bennett. And his performance against Alabama. And Georgia fans all over going. Yeah. Yeah. We could had trevor Lawrence. We did have justin fields. and. We're happy to have steps Bennett according to Kirby Smart. Finally. Dino Baber who right now is lucky to have a job. Maybe he's getting ready for a career as a as a as a commentator because he he said that even Alabama. Is Chasing Clemson. All that after his team lost the other day. To Chew Freezes Liberty. Maybe. Dino ought just worry about coaching and quit being. The next Kirk herbstreet. Anyway we'll. We'll do all that with its your photos. Of course let's talk about who will be popping by here. We'll start with Matt Baker on the gators issue issue, and then the aforementioned hugh freeze. You. Freeze is often running doing a great job and. He's playing southern Mrs weekend his Alma Mater. And they have an opening not that we're trying to start anything here. John Adams, not the president but the commentator. He has not been President Jeremy Pruitt Fan Club lately Greg mcelroy. In late in the show Pat Dooley. More on the gators situation. And Dooley will join us right now we're going to take your phone calls at eight, five, five, two, four, two, seven, two, eight, five, and we begin with John in Birmingham Hey John for name. Paul, all. Wow, we talking that you phrase. You can blame me for that I thought it was a good idea to talk to a guy that just beat a ACC team and. It's a great reputation as the guy who really got the rpo going in the SEC. Do you have any objectional? Really really really got you. Aver he really got into you. I don't know what he tells you. He got one of the worst hypocrites men I've ever. The BS that came out of his mouth when he was. Coaching. And they sec about such A. Fine Christian man. Blessed and Blah Blah Blah. And, then we find out the real hugh. Freeze And then Probably. I don't about that. Bill Cosby was a good actor. He was great. Yet. So you have lunch with him or something and All of a sudden he is just an goes to liberty. Let's make sure we get. Let's make sure we get the facts correct here. I had dinner with him at lunch. It was too long for lunch. Conversation for a hot dog. In a Diet Pepsi. The final later liberty. That would have been Jerry Falwell Junior. What has he done now he's having problems these days ever since it came out that he he was talking a wife with a young man. He was watching it. I don't know I can't remember the story, but it was pretty pretty suspicious salacious. Excuse me. You freeze man he just got. Listen I'm not I'm not. I run a talk show here not not A. Not a not a revival, but you are familiar with redemption. And you know. Absolution. Archie. I am I mean we all I mean I don't. I mean none of us are perfect. Yeah. But there are certain lines you don't cross if if offer. To me is is one of the worst stands. and when you. Have all this. Wonderful. Leadership, fine man loves the Bible Bible cousins. On blessed, we're blessed and and then you. John I. I I you sound like a man who understands face and second chances and redemption you don't think. He deserves a second chance I. mean he was he couldn't hitting coach for two years couldn't get a job nick. Sabin wanted him in Tuscaloosa offensive coordinator you couldn't be hired. You doesn't shock me nick save inside. Air About Morality. Man. Who Does by the way? I I I just think you really sold you a bill of goods and you bring back today. I there's no question I'm you know I'm a I'm fairly naive. Being in my position and being a journalist for these many years and seeing some of the things that I I usually I usually fall for anything. Well I just say Hey John let let me cut to the chase here. I was on the air the night that he was fired I commented on the story I was shocked. I'd sat in his office countless times and Oxford and heard him talk about the same things that you did. The only the only reason I bring that that dinner was for three hours I sat and listened to him talk. That's all I it doesn't matter to me if anybody likes you freeze. This is a cold cruel business that we're talking about and most athletic directors don't really care. What their coaches do as long as they win and don't get caught, it's not a matter of of walking the straight and narrow the as long as they don't get caught. They're happy with it and the second they get caught, they get fired and that's what happened to hugh freeze I. I'm not going to sit here in judgment of what he did. I mean we have we have. People in every walk of life I'm not gonNA say anymore because it sounds like, I'm I'm crossing a line here that that have made terrible mistakes. I've seen just like you have and the only difference between my sins and yours is they haven't been. Haven't been the lead the lead item on the on the news every night. There's a little difference I don't go around. Preaching, the morality and and. Holier Than Thou and I think it's very interesting. that. He ended up his liberty with the foul. All Guy. And what's happened to fall? I mean you've got. A pod up there. I can't John I can't sit here and tell you that. When the story came out about. A But then again, that's not my. My concerns aren't what happens liberty but anyway, I, I think I've explained enough I thought it was a pretty good story. And the reason why we had a guy on yesterday Stewart Mandel who credited you freeze for changing the SEC a I can assure you my job here isn't to promote hugh freeze his career he doesn't really need it. When. You have a win like you did the other day people are going to pay attention. We're here to talk about him and what he's done and and really his philosophy but I get it. Everybody has a different opinion and That's fair. Charles from town you're you're believer in second chances aren't you? Charles? How You. All about A. Doll. Yeah, I think he would go anywhere in the SEC. Would you. You. Are you going to negotiate the deal is that is that Just let me and Charles. Let me ask you a common sense question here. You're banned from coaching for two years. You can't even get an assistant job in the SEC I think I think coach freeze out about six or seven offers. You get you ended up at liberty. University nothing against Liberty I'm sure they teach and mould young men and women perfectly. And then somebody like southern miss or Auburn or or something like that. Offer you a job. You think you take it. I I'll let you back on the show. You Blade. ACQUA. Charles I believe everyone deserves a second chance. And we're not talking about I. I mean, this is not this is not an axe murderer here. A major coach. You know. Want to be. With them well, I don't know about that but let me let me say this. We'll. We'll talk to coach in a few minutes can't wait look forward to it more of your calls. And Commentary. WHEN WE COME BACK You're listening to the Paul Finebaum. Show podcast. We welcome you back a to do on this program. We we started mentioning the situation. At the University of floor mad banker joining us from Tampa. Matt good afternoon. Thank you for being here and tell us whatever you can about the current situation down there. Sara, thanks for having me on all. So here's the latest that we got from the gators coach. Dan Mullen earlier today on the SEC teleconference They continued to be more cases now as of on Tuesday, there was at least one more positive that the tests that were done on Tuesday some of the numbers Kinda hard to tell lineup just because we don't know what that gates for all of them. But here's what I would say is between tests done on October twelfth and those done on the nineteenth. There were twenty five more positives plus at least once more one more than than Mullen. Says everybody just about everybody's feeling fine. Maybe some mild symptoms mullen says he's feeling fine didn't quite sound like themselves and honestly just sounded like you had a cold and talking to him earlier today but he you know his family is doing well, he's isolating in a different part of the house with got the bedroom in the office. Next to it is His family has the rest and they're trying to Kinda get ready for when they will resume practice the current plan or at least the expected in hopes plan in Gainesville of that, they would get back to being on the field and doing football actual football things on Monday As of right now, you know they've they've been shut down and it would be fourteen days that they would have been shut down I'm I'm curious how look if they can indeed go back on my, we don't know to what extent people will still be out because we don't know on symptoms and how many people are quarantine than what coaches will be there and all that stuff. But the plan is the hope is that they will be back on Monday, getting ready for Missouri and a five day turnaround where they haven't done anything for two weeks. Now, they've got a game week trying to get back into it with a non full roster. I guess the obvious questions our contact tracing but but I'm not sure that really matters at this point does considering that nothing is happening. Well. Nothing is happening in terms of what's actually going on on the field, but I mean obviously, there's still people not everybody is quarantine so they can still go out and do things, and that's one of the interesting things in terms of the positive that they just had the other day. Now, they're going to be able to once they figure all these things out it can kind of trace who got. It from where and now that things aren't going on did somebody get it from somewhere else and all that stuff but the the the reason they shut down last week is the one to do like what the NFL does is okay. We've got an issue here. The best thing to do is shut it down. So we can kind of start the clock over start at zero with no cases and They're not at that case at that point right now but they're hoping to be back there and when they resume on Monday assuming they do they're gonNA have a four oster I think they expect to play against Missouri. But given the way things have been I don't know that that's a guarantee yet for that game to happen Numbers here that we don't really know the answers to but. Even, if it does happen, you're talking about a game. Where nothing has really happened for two weeks right. Correct and obviously there's a there's there I a component of it because I don't know to what extent the players have been able to work to throw around with each other informally 'cause we don't know who's. WHO HAS IT? WHO's quarantine? So that one question I'm just from an athletic standpoint I'm sure the guys as they've been able to have been doing some sort of workouts on their own or they're gonNA be in football shape out for two weeks maybe not necessarily and Mullen said that they were going to try and build back up a little bit but it's not great to build back up during the season when dot five days to prepare for. Missouri with a new head coach that I don't know how well the knows them. So just from a pure football perspective here, taking the other stuff out, it's a tall order again, just from football perspective. Beggar with US talking about the the Florida Situation I I'm sure there have been worse situations matt although I can't remember one in and again we don't know all the details of this yet but it doesn't sound very good. But I mean, you really do have to wonder I, mean Missouri's coming up and then what Georgia the week after. Correct Georgia the week after, and that's you know. This whole thing has stunk for everybody literally everybody in the country and probably everybody in the world this is stuck. It's it's very interesting. What's happened with the gators if you would have told me go back in time to February, which is like eighty years ago. I would have thought that gators could have a chance against against Georgia I don't know that it would have picked them to win but I thought it could be very entertaining game and maybe this was the ear and then as we went through all this stuff and then even in August I thought I looked at, you know what? I, think. That the gators have in terms of the coaching staff in terms of the veteran quarterback, Kyle trask turns of all the guys that return the offense of wine. It would be set up for a year for the gators to beat Georgia But as we sit here today, it's a really tough and and you know I don't know that it would have happened anyway I'm not GonNa go out and on that hypothetical win. But when you add in the situation that the gators are just been dealt with just like everybody else has been dealt with curb all this godforsaken year, it's GonNa be really hard order and and what would have been the pivotal game. Talking about beggar man. I I. I know Dan Mullen alluded to it today but tell us what you know from those conversation and others. He indicated he felt most of this came from the trip to college station. Correct. That's what Scott Stricklin the AD said last week. Wow and I thought the thought process is that you know they didn't have an outbreak beforehand the think one or two players basically boarded the trip. They had mild symptoms allergy headache that sort of thing and got on the trip thought it was no big deal and then once they're in a different setting outside of their kind of home, college football bubble is when things can have you know we've all been on airplanes they're not these. He's most roomy places be easy for things to spread their Essentially, rooming with people and hotel room pregame meal a cramp locker room at an I'm not. You know nobody to my knowledge thing that an MD anything malfeasance or anything like that. Nobody's blaming this on the crowd at college station nothing like that. It's just the fact that they're any different environment and the spaces that they were in were much more confined than they typically are at home in Gainesville where the. Locker Room and they don't have to get on a plane and that sort. And the close proximity that they had what we know about the virus that is usually in confined spaces and with close quarters, and that's potentially why they think that it went from one or two guys been tested negative and still being symptomatic to where we are now where at least twenty, five players since then something like that. Man I know it's water under the bridge but it just seems. Much. It seems maybe Negligent to to brush off somebody with allergies or the SNIFFLES seven months into a pandemic when when everyone. In America knows. What the signs are. Yeah and Stricklin when he talked about it last week you do. That's a fairly upset but he did point out like these guys protocol because the protocol in a situation like that or if you feel symptoms and here's what the symptoms are. Just about everybody knows what the symptoms are If you feel something you're supposed to say something and get tested and and get looked at in the you know one or two players did not and that's Seemed like that's the reason why the gators are in the situation where they are right now where they're going to be out of football for fourteen days with two games postponed and really going to be scrambling to kind of stay alive in the SEC east. Yeah. Again, the postmortem on this has not been. Offered or issued we're nowhere near that but These are all rather troubling signs, Matt thanks. I know it's a what happens to a reporter and all this I guess you're. You're locked out either way. Aren't you've? I I've been know I'm not talking to guy that it's funny. I'm covering the indy-car Grand Prix in Saint Petersburg. This weekend was going to be the opener for the series in March. It was literally by my count, the last major American sporting event to shut down during that time I'll be out there this weekend. It'll be the first time I've actually talked face to face with an athlete since mark I'm going to see. One of my colleagues I haven't seen one of my colleagues in personality, my colleague in Person in March either so it's GonNa. Be Very nice to get back to some sort of normal even as the main the main part of my Job Cohen College football remains very, very, very, very weird instinctively I was about to think well, you could at least go watch the world series and I forgot the world series in Texas so. Nothing nothing is normal. Hey, Matt. Thanks for coming on. Always great to have you on. Not Good stuff from Matt Baker that's That's a troubling situation down there. Hope hopefully, they can plow through and be ready to play a week from Saturday. We are heading to break hugh freeze joining us in a few minutes more of your phone calls at eight, five, five, four, two, seven, two, eight, five. You're listening to the Paul Finebaum. Show podcast.

Doing, Ken we're doing great. Thank you for calling. Is. Interesting. I Watch ACC game in the weekend for we. And what were the protocols I know? Florida's killed with the corona virus but how come Side Than got. cleared. To play. To. Tonight game against Georgia that confused me. Explain that I will be happy to he took a test on on Wednesday last week. And it came back. Positive. So. He tested again the very next day and it came back negative which indicated maybe. He had a false positive. So by Friday, he took it again and it was negative. So then. Therefore, he he needed one more negative test. Due to the new protocol by the way. There's a really great article today by Alan Blinder? In The New York. Times at talked about how this changed a couple of weeks ago because of a soccer player. Texas am. Under the previous protocol, he would not have been allowed back but they changed it not not without any knowledge that it was Nick Sabin about to be neck in the in the in the hopper. and Saturday morning. They did another test normally they drive They. Drive these tests I think to a mobile Alabama. Testing site but because of the Importance of the game. Alabama. Got The test sample. Put It on a private plane. Flew to mobile, which about a forty five minute flight. Did the test And by noon about ten thirty or eleven I should say they knew that Sabin was clear they they knew the second test but So that's what happened. And because of that, he was able to coach. Well I I'm bleeding power save and. One of the greatest coaches of all time and. This is Kinda funny. My grant nine year old grandson was flushing ballgame with me in. Sabin through is I fear? My grandson say. Pal Is that what you're talking about throwing the see it not safe. Yeah. Sure is that's hey. Thank you. I really appreciate it enjoyed talking earl is next in Cincinnati Earl. Thank you. Good afternoon. This is not for Cincinnati how are you? Doing, great. How are you? Well I'm doing good. I've culture. So since you've been on the television and I I, catch it on radio now and not begin following you since you've been on ESPN. Network and I just wanted to tell you I like, Oh, you're characters I like I like the squirrel failure I like man I liked that filler from Tuscaloosa that Jim even get one that's HYPOCR PGA Daryl from Georgia. But this guy that I got the first part here show that come in and started passing husband own you freeze for no reason. But maybe there is I'm disappointed that I really did like defect I the only man that worked on this earth that was perfect was Christ. Jesus but evidently John the Baptist down in Birmingham he must be perfect. Yeah I agree with you and listen I think it's fair game the guy was a public figure and Walls came crashing down but. I am not trying to mitigate any transgression whatever he did. he lost his job and it was a great job paying billions of dollars a year and He may never get a job back that well or he might but. All I was trying to convey the other day. Was it. I had a I've had many conversations with free, but I was just simply referencing one long evening that I spent two years ago an Oxford where he he went through start to finish and. I listened that's what I do. That's that's what you do and you know what I heard that night was was a story that he would tell a college administrator trying to hire him and that's how he got hired a liberty Jerry Falwell junior or not I have no idea what. I've never met your Falwell Junior. And To me, he deserves a second chance he paid he paid for his transgressions. Did. was give a fellow chains to talk tell his side of the story to on edited in and you just follow up and talked about. This fellow down in Birmingham Alabama you from John I think he's a little bit upset by the fact really thought thinking about her cue free three. Here's Real Tab Alabama twice and other things like that. So we jumped on me what did you think about that and and to me? The Hugh free story is more about how changed the SEC offensively and What I learned that night. and He's been on this program talking about it as well as that, he probably will get another chance and in my mind he deserves it. I I. Mean, there are a lot of things people can do and we have people in every walk of life. In in politics and public or in. An administrative work where where I work where you are who knows where who do certain things and you know it's a terrible outcome but most of the time they do it to themselves in this case. He lost everything and you know did it. Would ever do it again I I I have no earthly idea I really don't care. It's not my job to worry about the Bible has as full stores luck. Come back and good enough for a good enough for you. Freeze I'M IN HIS CORNER, win lose or draw I love the southeastern conference but can take John Filler from down Birmingham thirty. Delete list. Off I'll do it. Hey, thank you be well Ryan is in Mississippi Hey Ryan. How did this Brian? We're doing great. It low I got one question for. The best team this. that would be a very difficult question for me right now. I got an answer for you. I would say, Arkansas. Or they in Mississippi I didn't realize that but they probably will well, they beat overtake. Yeah I. Other. Between Southern Miss Ole miss and Mississippi State, I'd probably take Ole miss. Yeah. They take all. Thank you. Good to have you on Hugh for Asia has already started up a little bit of controversy on this program because of the story I told will join us in about thirty minutes. We will continue with your phone calls in a moment at eight, five, five, two, four, two, seven, two, eight, five. You're listening to the Paul Finebaum show podcast. Back Dan though let's get to the calls and Jerry is in Louisiana, egeria good afternoon. Hey. Paul. Hey listen. I'm a die hard, Lsu Fan. But if we don't win Saturday. I don't know for win another game just here. I mean it'd be. Enough. Yeah I do think. I do think it's a critical game to win because it. It looked automatic before the year South Carolina's playing better but the Games are going to really get difficult for lsu schedule is just insane with a when you talk about Florida Alabama Auburn. Am You're going to run out of you're going to run out of opportunities and you don't WanNa follow up a national championship and the greatest season ever with a disaster. I know you don't realize. How Alabama and Clinton does it every year until you? Fall use. The one thing I do not understand is when it does, you're on talking about how he thought this defense could be better than last year I'm really curious what he was watching when he said that. Yeah I tell you what you was talking about he for you. I'd love to have him offencive coordinated Lsu. Well he freeze could as as a coordinator could literally name his his place head coach would be a little more challenging but but he has that well thought of really appreciate your call. Thanks David is up next in Texas A. Hey. David. David we're doing great. I really appreciate your show and I was watching this morning and kind of really enjoyed your Herbie remark to start with. All across the bottom of the screen, the two and news. I'm a Lifetime Bama Fan and I grew up watching Zovko versus Joe name the Orange Bowl. Sure. I. Got it both ways to and went to Miami. And we've all been loving the whole story of you know, see the old guy teach him to young guy. and. Now, all of a sudden I'm reading they're gonNA start to what's your thoughts Yeah I when I heard that you have to wonder because the dolphins you're playing pretty well but I think it has everything to do with giving him time to get comfortable and he was always going to be the starter. You don't take somebody in the top five. Unless they unless you've made a terrible mistake and I I want to know is how is he going to handle the hits? Because you know without preseason we really don't know. Always worried about the kid because he's such a great kid you reflects on what we'd like to see many of our young men. Yeah there there's never been one they're there. Well, I mean there are there are but there have been few people errors as classy as to thanks for the call Dennis in Georgia you're on the air go right ahead. Paul I'm concerned about the quarterback situation at all but. go knicks I think is probably a fine young man you stated was sitting here. Right thing falls. But. He can't get the job done. and. It's GonNa hurt our recruiting not only for. A quarterback, but for other players to. how season just just going to be bad over dad. I don't. We might be daily issue as you call to say it but. I'm afraid paddle to question. I'd like to you. Let me say this about you're right about bone knicks. He's he's a great young man. We talked to him about two weeks ago and not only do I know his father I, covered his father as a younger reporter and they're great people and I maybe I maybe you let that affect your your mindset. I thought he was going to be unbelievable for your starter but they are really at a crossroads right now with Nick's and I know everyone wants to blame Chad Morris he's the one that Gus Malzahn toss keys to. Find a way to utilize Bo Knicks more and it turned out to be a disaster so far he's not being protected his weapons or somewhat limited, and I think another loss perhaps this weekend and right now it's hard to get a gauge on this game I. Think this program could just literally come undone Well. That's what I'm afraid of not. Just they she yeah no, you're right. Because when I mean gus, Malzahn has been through this before Dana's but it's going to get worse and I mean I'm not saying over I. Mean this season there are a lot of there's a lot of turns and curves it they're still to be dealt with but. Things are looking pretty desperate and I. don't really understand what they're trying to do offensively. Well. I don't think anybody. Does it just being lifelock? Auburn Fan for? Eighty. Something years I just hate to see code and the drain. because. The way I mean you go back to the Alabama game last year and it looked like this program was was really. Lifted off but but I think sometimes you can just read too much into one game. Hey, thank you for the Call I. Really Appreciate it Herald is up next herald is in Missouri Hello. Hello Paul. How are you doing, herald? Fan that works in Arkansas. So. He. was trying to get your take on which thing in Missouri if they they've already missed one game because they could Miss Florida game possible. GonNa Affect Missouri where do you see them enough and I'm just kind of Arkansas that they seem to be getting? Yeah. The Missouri part of it I mean I I I'm so excited about the LSU. Kirk shrink to me is just a burst of energy and. It's what that program needed. Arkansas is the surprise team. And Yeah I know fans are fans and. Now, every game is winnable but to me Sam Pippen already one. And Interestingly, I, you've heard this. Big, part of the success comes from Barry Odem. Yes sir. It sure does and I think that was just it got to me and and people need to say this is a lesson in life is. You surround yourself with good people You're kind of a cliche you're always should get somebody around you that smarter. Very, Odom was smarter than Sam Pittman when it when it came to being an SEC head coach and because of that, he has helped Sam Pittman become a really good sec head coach and just as first season, we're heading into the break hugh freeze coming up here in a few minutes. Thank you for listening to the Paul Finebaum Show podcast the Paul Finebaum show weekdays on the SEC network beginning at three eastern.

Georgia vs Florida - The Worlds Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party | 1

"<music> it's October twenty seventh two two thousand seven Mark Richt Georgia football's head coach strolls across the turf of Municipal Stadium in Jacksonville Florida in just thirty minutes his bulldogs kickoff against the Florida gators and for once Richt is brimming with confidence. Both teams are now five and two so neither is really a national championship unshipped contention but for Richt this is still the most important game he's ever coached. It's chillier than usual today. In Jacksonville the city. That's hosted pretty much catch every Florida Georgia game since the Nineteen Thirties Jacksonville is supposed to be a neutral game site but it doesn't feel that way to Richt it's it's in Florida for crying out loud and a game called. The gator bowl is played here. How could it be neutral? Rick thinks as he looks up at a sea of Orange Orange and blue gator fans the gators brought the bulldogs to heal in five of their last six matchups. It's given Florida a huge mental edge and made the buttoned-up buttoned-up Georgia coach desperate enough to do something crazy at least for him something with swagger. Maybe a little arrogance something to get some fire in squads belly even if it pisses off some football purists something in other words very unmarked Rick Lake in seven seasons is at Georgia Richt has built a reputation as a man of faith. WHO's quiet decency stands out in the cutthroat world of college football for him? It's at simple you win with integrity you lose with integrity. It's the Georgia way that's what makes this right now. The most off the wall moment of Mark ricks entire career as kickoff approaches rick makes his way back to the cramped locker room stands before his players and reminds them of his plan to snap their losing streak he tells them if you don't get a celebration penalty after our first score you'll all be doing early morning. Runs welcome to Jacksonville Hill and the seventy fifth encounter at this site between these two better rivals however you need to to compete if you're going to have a real rivalry and Georgia has lost as we said fifteen at the last seventeen almost nine minutes into a scoreless game with Georgia facing third and goal at the Florida one yard line star running back no now Sean Marino takes a hand off and jumps over the pile of linemen in front of him Marino up attack Georgia touchdown and here comes the entire team watch. Is this for excessive celebration. We may have fifteen Hanky Jamir on this. I can't believe this plane. This was absolutely plan. Rick decided that he got to try to fight his team up. He's tired of having the psychological advantage. He's willing to give up the penalty. Nearly every Georgia player on the sideline rushes the field penalty flags fly in every direction the C._B._S.. Cameras Swing to the other other sideline anticipating a reaction from the gators. Tim Tebow Florida's phenomenally talented Sophomore quarterback looks confused Sodas Otas tvos coach Urban Meyer Meyer is frantically waving his Florida players off the field to avoid pointless penalties. Meanwhile rick takes it all in <unk> happily and knows his plan worked. The gators are rattled as the second half unfolds. Georgia's still doesn't give away its leave their staffer. The Marino Georgia touched the bulldogs match every Tibo touchdown with one of their own and win the game forty two to the thirty for the first time in years. The Florida Georgia game lives up to the hype. A rivalry. That's been uneven in the last decade is incredible once again. Georgia's full team touchdown celebration quickly gets a nickname in the media. The gator STOMP RICHT is thrilled but he's created an unexpected new problem while he made the rivalry competitive again he also just encouraged urban Meyer Tim Tibo and the entire Florida Lord a team to spend the next three hundred sixty four days plotting their revenge sports wars is brought to you in part by lifeproof makers of Action Ready Phone cases designed to let you live fulltime.

That's a cliche but it's true especially in college football. The college game has the shortest season in sports. It has generational hatred rabid regional loyalties and fanatical alums so certain games matter more than others. These are the games that make or break legacies the games aims that give middling coaches a shot at glory and otherwise great coaches a shot at humiliation. These are the rivalry games. What is it though that elevates some of these rivalries to legendary status often the schools that hate each other the most might actually have a lot in common but that's what makes college football rivalries so irrationally passionate for the first three episodes of the season? We're diving into a rivalry. That's long simmering star studded and completely completely unruly Florida verse Georgia. This is episode one the world's largest outdoor cocktail party two hundred and fifty mile border divides Georgia and the deep south from the odd and colorful melting pot that is Florida. The University of Georgia is the oldest state chartered university in the country and it's located in the charming town of Athens name to emulate Plato's Academy and the University of Florida well. It's in Gainesville a small city known more for its trees than it skyscrapers when the campus was founded in one thousand nine hundred six six they actually had to close its gates at night so cows wouldn't wonder at Georgia near the arch the university's historic landmark that represents wisdom justice and moderation. There's a good chance you'll see students. Sporting a colored red and black Georgia shirt tucked into a neat pair of Press Khakis at Florida near the potato. The campuses oddly shaped thirty thousand year old ten ton rock. You're more likely to see students in a tank top and a pair of shorts. At least that's the stereotype. The dichotomy even extends to music Athens produce the conic ult- rock band R._E._M.. FAVORITE OF RECORD STORE SNOBS UH and Gainesville is straight rock and roll the home of Tom Petty who grew up in what he once called the redneck hillbilly part of town and built his career playing shows for college college kids who just wanted to rock out while drink and cheap beer the football rivalry between the two schools begins in one thousand nine hundred four or maybe it doesn't maybe it begins is in one thousand nine hundred fifteen. That's one measure of just how weirdly feisty this rivalry is. The two schools involved can't even agree on when it started Georgia says it was in one thousand nine hundred four when the two schools played their first game and Georgia one fifty two to nothing but Florida fans believed the rivalries true start date was nineteen fifteen since it's Florida's campus hadn't yet moved to it's permanent Gainesville home in nineteen. Oh four Georgia still won the nineteen fifteen game by the way one thing is up for debate. Georgia dominated nominated those early matchups winning by a combined score of two hundred forty two two nine and then you could probably make the argument that neither of these dates are correct that the Florida Georgia matchup reached the level of bitter feud on November Tenth Nineteen Twenty eight that day more than half of Florida's student body makes the trip to Georgia sometime in the final minutes with the gators up twenty six two six and exuberant Florida Fan with a gun fires off a blank thinking that was just a sign that the game's over Florida fans stormed the field and tear down the goalposts and celebration Georgia fans then rushed the field to fists fly a huge brawl whole breaks out the final few minutes of the game play out with a background of random fistfights that police can't seem to fully stop several this crash rash violently into several faces rights one local reporter in that moment a rivalry is born but a game like this doesn't belong in Genteel thiel Georgia it needs a permanent home in town happy to host a party and five years later. It'll find one. It's November fourth nineteen thirty three the country is in the midst of the Great Depression. Americans and more specifically southerners need a distraction and in Florida versus Georgia football provides it in their first season since joining the newly formed southeastern conference or the S._E._C. Florida and Georgia decided to move their match up to a neutral location Jacksonville Florida first majors that you've come upon driving south along the East Coast is Jacksonville Gateway Way to Florida and its principal part. It's a growing city on the northeast coast with a gleaming new stadium that houses seventy six hundred people. It's huge huge to be fair. It's not entirely a halfway point between the two schools. It's only an hour's drive from Florida's campus and a half day trip from Georgia's us for now though it doesn't matter even with the struggles brought on by the depression dog fans are willing to make the trip probably because they know they're paying to watch their our team win and sure enough that day in Nineteen thirty three Georgia trances Florida fourteen nothing the bulldogs keep winning during these early years in Jacksonville taking thirteen of the first fifteen contests by the nineteen forties. The stadium has doubled in size. It'll keep growing and packing in the crazies over the years. The stadium is also renamed the gator bowl but the name is about where Florida's advantages begin and end during this early stretch stretch it still all Georgia early on yet. The game itself almost doesn't matter by the time the nineteen fifties come around. This game is only part of the full Volvo Wild Florida Georgia experience. It's now the biggest party of the season. It's November Eighth Nineteen Fifty Eight and Bilkis tells the Sports Editor of the Florida Times Union is wandering through the masses outside the gator bowl. He's in search of a story. The good news is Has Gotten more competitive over the course of the decade Florida's been winning more and more thanks in part to their new head coach a Georgia native. That's right Georgia native named I'm Bob Woodruff. The bad news in nineteen fifty eight is that this year's game is a total done. Woodruff's gators have already lost three games. This year in Georgia has already lost four simply put this year's game is a trash pile so the sports editor figures the story must be out here among the crowds of tailgaters living their best lives one drink at a time the gator Bowl stadium now holds more than forty thousand people nearly six times its original capacity acidy as the game has grown so too has the intensity of the pre kickoff gathering outside fans now have their calendars marked for the game typically the last Saturday in October the first Saturday in November they start showing up earlier than ever days and days even and leaving later than ever. How do I describe this castells wonders? It doesn't really have the intensity of a brawl. It's more like a huge never ending social event. All these people all that that booze people don't come here to watch the game so much as root for anything wearing their colors as he wanders through the parking lot he sees a fan approach a a police officer in uniform and this fan is feeling booed. He's in that special drunken head space where irrationality seem chivalrous chivalrous and he's trying to do the gentlemanly thing offer the COPPA drink. That's what this is. The sports editor thinks it's the world's largest outdoor door cocktail party he heads back up to the press box punches the keys on his typewriter and makes history for the next three decades or longer. If you're some people people this will be the official name of the Florida Georgia rivalry a decade later during the heart of the sixties. The party is still going strong on the field. The level of play is catching up to how fun the parking lots can be. The bulldogs have a coach that perfectly represents their blue blood history ambitions editions and the Gators have found what they've been looking for for decades a quarterback with the talent and the will to put an end to Georgia's dominance. It's in Marvel Studios avengers endgame. The remaining avengers must overcome the aftermath of destruction and face their biggest challenge yet finding the resolve within themselves to defeat Thanos once and for all the world's greatest heroes will finally understand just how fragile a reality is and the sacrifices that must be made to uphold it in a story of friendship teamwork and setting aside differences France's to overcome an impossible obstacle get avengers endgame on digital now and Blu Ray August thirteenth new on four K Ultra H._d..

It's the first Saturday in November nineteen sixty four Florida's nineteen year old sophomore quarterback back Steve spurrier sits on a stool in the locker room and pulls his number Eleven Jersey over his shoulder pads. He can feel the earth moving under his feet as nearly nearly fifty thousand fans many of them well lubricated from the parking lot cocktail party wedged themselves into the gator bowl for this year's matching for once once spurrier's gators are favored to win and he knows that's largely because of him already the consensus among writers and fans is that sprayer is on on his way to becoming one of the greatest quarterbacks in school history and he can't help but agree spurrier jogs onto the field for pregame warmups. He's from a small town in Tennessee where his dad instilled an insane competitive streak and that attitude is a perfect fit for Florida spurrier could've if play anywhere he was the quarterback prospect every school in the south coveted he can throw Ron. He can even kick as he stops at the forty yard line for a pre-game stretches he glances across the field at the man whose sole mission is to stop him from winning today thirty two year old Vince Dooley Georgia's rookie key head coach doesn't know much about him. Not many people do the reporters have painted him as an intellectual guy who smokes a pipe and just finished his masters master's degree in history last year he wonders how a guy who probably knows more about the history of reconstruction than he does about pass defense. It's is going to stop them. On the football field as spurrier warms up he feels more certain about his decision to attend Florida than ever Florida's head coach Ray graves the promise spurrier and opportunity to play right away and he followed through on that promise he impress barrier by shooting M._R. which means you'll get a chance to compete for the job. As soon as you're eligible it also helped that's spurrier. I visited Gainesville on a seventy degree winter day. Forty degrees warmer than it was back home on that trip. One of his future teammates took him out for a round on the university golf course and spurrier fell in love on the spot midway through his visit. Though spurrier started feeling terrible eventually getting diagnosed with mononucleosis his future head coach graves stayed with him the campus infirmary this sold him completely on graves and on Florida now a couple of years later here he is anxiously pacing on the sidelines headlines in his first year of eligibility for the Varsity team getting ready to play crucial snaps at quarterback against Georgia Midway through the season. He's already on the verge. Urge of Greatness University of Florida where Cooper Steve as the newspaper boys finally called him crowd to their feet preseason <music> game after the fire with dead I passing and through what just a couple weeks ago in spurrier's very first game on the Varsity squad graves as instructed a nervous spurrier to call his own play so spurrier dialed up a screen pass that led to a touchdown a few weeks later spurrier played brilliantly only in a narrow loss to Alabama and now with the gators and dogs tied at seven in the fourth quarter spurs on the sideline holding his helmet ready to run on the feel for Florida's offensive possession but to his surprise graves reinsert Florida's senior quarterback to try and finish this game off spurrier is surprised and maybe a little bit annoyed even if he won't say so he's struggled today sharp but p preferred to finish this game himself and he loved up to bury Georgia's rookie head coach in the process. Vince Dooley is pacing on the opposite side line. His mouth is dry. He doesn't need a history lesson to know. Just how important winning this Florida Georgia game would mean to his job security back when he and his wife were moving into their new Athens Georgia home he joked. You know what why don't we leave. Some of those boxes packed. We might be on the next train to who knows where before we know it. He rather that train ride didn't come today so this potential defensive stop matters in a tie game against the gators he of course knows his team is less talented. They haven't even completed a pass today but duly does have wits. I'll bet I'm smarter than most other coaches doing things and if I work hard and work smart I can figure out how to build something here duly glances over at the Florida sideline. What's their coach doing leaving spurrier off the field late in the fourth quarter Chirp. It hasn't been his best game but he's one of the best young players players in the country duly. Maybe this is his chance to pull out a W against Florida after Georgia has lost eight of nine with the game still title seven duly watches a spurrier's replacement botches a hand off and fumbles the ball away now. Georgia has the ball back deep in Florida territory territory the bulldogs drive but hit a wall at the Florida five yard line even so a field goal will put the dogs ahead. It's a very makeable chip shot so soak duly sends in his kicker Bobby Etter to attempt the field goal. The ball is snapped but the holder drops it instinctively editor a one hundred fifty pound kicker occur who has never run with the football plows into the corner of the end zone for the game winning touchdown as it turns out. It's a trick play that duly practiced with his team for this exact moment and that win turns duly into an immediate legend not only will he make it through that season with Georgia. He'll make get through twenty four more as much as that wind stays with duly the loss also sticks with spurrier spurrier knows he'll get more chances but losing at the Gator Bowl as a Florida quarterback will haunt spurrier for decades. This is the first time he's come up short against Georgia and if there's one thing that Steve Spurrier hasn't and we'll never master. It's how to let go of a grudge in our next episode head ball coach. Steve Spurrier goes from quarterback to head coach and brings a new wildfire fire to this Georgia dominated rivalry.

Florida's Forgotten Coast

"Just above the Blue Green waters of Florida's panhandle a flock of Brown pelicans heads West these birds can stay in the air for hours with a few simple flaps its wings a- Pelican can glide for more than one hundred feet one reason they fly so low over water is because the air between their wings and the water's surface gets compressed and and gives the birds lift to help them glide for longer. This flock is flying over one of the state's most distinctive landscapes a place known as the forgotten coast the white beaches of the Florida panhandle. This white sand is actually from the Appalachian Mountains over many thousands of years rivers carried quartz and granite silk out of those mountains and deposited here along the panhandle after the civil war. Florida tried to sell off the panhandle to Alabama Emma for a million dollars but Alabama not so politely refused saying it had no use for a sandbank and a Gopher region today that same bank is a Florida treasure coast has remained undeveloped and trapped in time in the middle of the panhandle lies Appalachicola Bay protected from the Gulf of Mexico by the islands of Saint George and Saint Vincent this this Bay is one of the only places in America where fishermen called Tonga's still harvest oysters the old fashioned way using small boats and rate like tongs tongs to scrape the shellfish off the seafloor ninety percent. Four voices are harvested here enough every year to bury the Florida gators football team up to their waists on the field.

190: Mac mini (2018) Review

"Maybe apple always intended update. Amac, mini, but got distracted by more urgent projects. Maybe apple was waiting to do something different with the mini. But it was taking too long or maybe apple never intended to update the MAC mini at all. But changed his mind after seeing just how much some of its customers missed the littlest MAC. I don't know. But I do know this after four long fallow years apple has finally, yeah. Finally, updated the many, it's got faster chips more memory and higher storage options than ever before. But it's also got a higher price tag to go with it starting now at seven ninety nine. So is this the MAC mini update? Everyone's been waiting for I'm Richie. Welcome back to Victor. Thanks for joining me. Let's review this now it comes in space gray seriously. That's it. And it's great. Yeah. I saw some people complaining that it was wait for it boring. Well, those aren't the people who want or needed and if apple had made it less boring by spinning it into. I don't know an octagon or something those wouldn't be the people suddenly buying it or paying apple back for quote unquote, innovating themselves into a bad product just to appease, the armchair, internet designers. You never changed just to be different. That's desperate. You change to be better would changing the MAC minis design make it better. Not for everyone already using one especially in stacks, especially in. Server racks, by keeping the same design, those people the core of the modern MAC mini market can simply pull old units out of their setups and pushing the new ones new space gray ones, and that's way, more important than any internet. Hot take or frankly any internet hot Taylor. I'm not gonna waste any time on how much faster than you. Mac mini is compared to the previous one that can be useful and important when his generation over generation when it's generation over four generations. It's not that useful anymore. What's more important than the update is that the MAC mini has been updated from Intel's fourth generation has will architecture to its eighth generation coffee lake and you can now get it with a quad core. I three at three point six gigahertz and six megabytes of shared l three cache a six core. I five at three gigahertz base and four point one gigahertz. Turbo frequencies and nine megabytes of L three or a six core. I seven at three point two gigahertz based four point six gigahertz turbo and twelve megabytes of L three all cooled by a new thermal architecture with a bigger fan expanded vents. Redesigned power supply because frankly, Intel his still stuck at fourteen nanometers apple needs. It's no new MAC pro. But it's not meant to be. It's for everything you don't want or need a MAC pro for either singularly for a lighter more flexible or diverse workload or in stacks or racks for massively parallel or shared workloads. Apple's current showcases compressor hit a button and one or more mcnamee's pick up your encoding load. Letting you do something else while they chew through HEC. That's thanks to Apple's custom T to security chip, which turns out isn't just for as acuity room to be based on the eight ten fusion found in the iphone seven and running something called bridge us, it can take the custom in code blocks and use them to handle video far better than the Intel cone alone to possibly do. That's sort of the story of Apple's MAC line in general right now as Intel slows to a crawl and its attempts to get ten nanometer. And once again throws cores at a process problem apple is literally architect ings circles around them be at four secure boot realtime eight two hundred fifty six bit encryption unified controller architecture even a fairly. Recent iphone class image signal processor, like I mentioned in the macbook era view, adding customer silicon to Intel gives apple an advantage. No other vendor enjoys at least not currently, and you know, in some other ways, the MAC mini really needs it because for example graphics are limited to Intel you HD six thirty. And if you want anything more you'll have to hang an Pugh or several off the back. You want memory and your new MAC mini house AAC bites? Okay. Yeah. I get it sixteen gigabytes more how about thirty two gigabytes. No still not enough. Sixty four freaking gigabytes of two six six six the megahertz of the beast DDR four ram in s o Dem's. If you really are looking for an inexpensive desktop MAC. You can start on the smaller keeper end. But if you're looking to max out your MAC server, you can go higher than ever. And because they're socketed you can upgrade them if and when you want to or have too, well, if you're an Fixit class wiz that is otherwise you can take them to your local apple store or certified service. Enter and how the great for you. It means as you or your business grows. Your MAC mini can grow with you which helps. Extend its useful life, and it's not user upgradable is the storage. It's PCIE flash holder right onto the board and apple locks down to the t- to chip for the secure boot and realtime encryption reasons, I just outlined. So my advice is by what you need up front. One hundred twenty eight gigabytes two hundred fifty six gigabytes five hundred twelve gigabytes five hundred gigabytes one terabyte or few terabytes any s you can hang more storage outside. But no matter how fast external is it's still external. So again, I'd recommend getting enough internal suit not just your application needs, but your baseline document needs as well. In other words, keep your life stuff live, my favorite thing about the MAC mini old new is that it has eight ton of I o for all of that stuff. There are four USB thunderbolt three ports now for starters with two independent controllers. And that means each port can provide up to the full forty gigabits per second bandwidth. That's enough to drive all your external drives and raid arrays and fast. It can also drive to four K displays or one five Gators play at up to sixty Hertz. They're also to USB three. Point one points for your old school connects new generation speeds admi 2.0 for your video production and home theater needs. There's gigabit or optional. Ten gigabit Ethernet for the fastest networking possible. And there's even a three point five millimeter Jack for headphones or audio work. Yeah. The MAC hasn't deleted that yet. But digital audio mini Jack IRS ever S D H c Carter of all been deleted. Personally. I won't more in the first too much. I'm sure DJ's and universal remote aficionados will. But inconveniently located on the back as it was not having SDH see on a desktop otherwise. So well suited for photography and camera work is beyond frustrating, at least for me that aside, and yeah, depending on your workflow that can be a little or a lot to put aside in every other way and makes the MAC mini every bit as as apples best, desktops and more than any current notebook. The biggest and best surprise though. Coming out of Apple's MAC mini announcement wasn't the space gray and wasn't even the sixty four gigabyte option or the Dems, it was the recycled aluminum not that you'd know it by just looking at it to the I it looks exactly. The same six thousand series bead blasted aluminum apples been carving computers out of since the original unibody give or take the precise alloy. Like, I said in the macbook air of you. It's only when apple tells you that they're metallurgical team has found a way to reuse the excess aluminum alloy carved off of devices like the new ipad pro to make devices like the new MAC mini that you really do a double take, and that's huge not because no one is growing anymore aluminum supply on trees. But because we don't yet have another planet to escape to if we run out here or just smelt the planet, so toxic. We need to run out of here combined with the new carbon-free smelting process apple announced earlier this year, not having to smell any new aluminum. For new MAC minis airs is nothing short of game. Changing MAC mini was the original switcher machine for everyone ready to dump their beige box for an aluminum round wrecked mouse. Keyboard and display not included. Apple took it all the way to four cores and two terabytes before sliding back to deal core. And then nothing for long years of nothing. Now, it's back. But while it. Was gone. The world changed switchers either became the switched or decided they preferred switching to a notebook where the track Pat keyboard and display were included. So where does that leave the MAC mini both new and in general still for some switchers, certainly, but increasingly for prose pros who need a machine not with a five K display or Zeon chipset, but with MAC OS running quietly reliably honor under a desk in a home theater setup onstage in the server room. And yeah in stocks, and sometimes even those massive racks for them, a mini as pro as it space, gray annotation implies is exactly what they want especially when even at a higher price. It's still less expensive than any MAC notebook. But yeah that higher price MAC mini debuted at four hundred nine to appeal to switchers at time where desktops hadn't given as much way to notebooks as they have today. It did go up to five nine in the past. But then it dropped back down to four nine year later. Now, it starts at wait for it. Seven ninety nine and goes up from their way up if you really need to add all. The options, but then people buying four thousand nine hundred ninety nine dollars. Servers aren't buying four hundred ninety nine dollars entry level. Anyway, that there's an option that high, but not that low should tell us everything we need to know about who apple sees as the current MAC mini customer. Still. I wish there was something more accessible something act for ninety nine even five ninety nine for mobile apple solve this with just over three hundred dollars ipad for desktop. I wonder if they could or would do the same at some point something a little more than an apple TV for a little less than a MAC, many something for anyone and everyone who wants to get into computers, and maybe even computer science because that would be all the really neat. Well, that and brilliant brilliant is eight problem-solving website that teaches you to think like a computer scientist instead of listening to lectures, or podcast or even videos. Great videos, are brilliant provides the tools and frameworks you need to tackle challenges and solve problems. Billions of thought provoking content based around breaking up complexities into bite sized understandable chunks lead you from. Curiosity to mastery. So what are you waiting for checkout? Brilliant dot org slash vector and get started today. Thanks brilliant. And thanks to all of you for supporting the show. So is this the MAC mini? We've all been waiting for. Yes. No. It's not a bold new take on the original switcher or reimagining of the desktop for post Intel world, it's not even really entry level anymore based on the price. Except compared to every other MAC, it may be a placeholder. It could be a resurrection. But it could also be pragmatic. Most max old our notebooks, desktops and most desktop sold. Are not MAC minis. And this is likely the type of MAC mini that will appeal to the biggest section of the MAC mini market. Exactly. Those pros I mentioned who don't need it for everything. But do need it for very specific things and find its usability and utility more than justifies price, especially when it comes to the software can run and the up time it can keep it can't replace traditional server like apples old x it's not redundant. It doesn't have enterprise memory or architecture. It's not easily accessible, it's not completely user upgradable. But it is. Remarkable serving appliance those people who do literally want to just set it and forget it and for those people apple probably had them space gray who like getting apple probably had them at new for me. I haven't had the new MAC mini for long enough to put it through enough paces to see what it really can. And can't do yet. But that's exactly what I'll be doing over the next few weeks with everything from home theater to home server. Final cut pro tend to well, you tell me hit like hit subscribe. And then hit up the comments below. And let me know what kind of workflows you want me to test out on the new MAC, mini, and I'll turn through as many of them as I possibly can. Thank you so much for watching.

"Plants Capture Co two what if we could help industrial plants capture it to thank you we can help lower emissions more and more for scientists than carbon capture is key to reducing co two emissions globally. It's one way Exxon Mobil. Helping industrial plants be more like plants. That's the unexpected energy of Exxon Mobil truly go on the road one. What allowed US places probably in our league. You have to win the beginning. We'll be ready to play. The competition will certainly require us the player very best. The A lot of Georgia fans have had this from north on schedule for a long time Z. quarterback this Vilma Auto Burns College football live in Vilna. Were starting with soap about this no Irish spring in Georgia. They're getting ready for this. Georgia Notre Dame rivalry coming up on on Saturday night. I love it. That's right man. Everybody's involved not just eleven players on the field. It's the fans. It's a superstar that grocery store everybody. Let's go breath. Vilma way too excited right now. Hey I'm excited. Let's start college. Football live four months ago. Welcome come to college football presented by Jock pepper now for today's. Wendy's weekend and watch of course everybody's excited for this look at this three big game Saturday Wisconsin hosting Michigan Badgers looking awfully good so far this season one hundred intend tend to nothing outscoring those opponents afternoon Auburn and a nightcap no Irish spring available Thompson battle between Notre Dame and Georgia. Irish is one eighteen gene versus. AP Top five teams since nineteen ninety nine all right both teams right now. This is huge in Athens thirty nine percent chance to make the College Football Playoff playoff so I'm going to start here auto. Who Do you trust more who needs it more taken and book with the Irish or Jake from an Athens based on that. I'm taking jake from. I think that they will win. The ballgame. Ian Book will put up better numbers because the book has to put up the better numbers. Notre Dame runs exclusively exclusively off Ian Book in the last time we saw Notre Dame on a national stage. They got embarrassed thirty to three against Clemson. Notre Dame can afford would that again. The problem is notre. Dame doesn't have enough help it see in book and that is he'll put up the numbers but I just don't think it'll be enough for Notre Dame and pull off the victory now. The only way in book puts a Godley numbers bear numbers in Jape frahm is if he's playing catch up after a blowout and is really junkyards at the the end of the game. The book is going to be pressured by degeorge defensive line they have different packages are going to bring in on third down and let's not forget the Georgia's secondary can dairy can run with every last one of those. Notre Dame wide receivers. There is nobody on that. Notre Dame offensive skill set that can that Georgia fears right now in the the secondary so Jake Brahm is going to put up the numbers with a better offensive line with better wide receivers more skilled why receivers faster team and frankly he's a better quarterback talking about wide receivers a lot of questions on whether or not Georgia had the wide receivers this season because five of their pass catchers went out last year eighteen different bulldogs have caught up past so far. I want to throw this at you. Though Georgia's Olin averages three hundred and thirty pounds Notre Dame's defensive line two hundred and seventy pounds. How big of a difference maker is that Vilma when it comes to this job the size difference two-way difference? I don't look at so much. I'm talking about the speed. The lateral speed lateral quickness. Georgia's offensive line is one of the best if not the best offensive line in college football is because laterally they can handle all the quickness all the stunt moves at the deal on will do all the blitzes that Notre Dame will try to do. That's why there's going to be such a mismatch on the offensive line against Notre Dame's names defensive line I will I will add to that. Georgia saw this debt already through three games. They have twelve sacks on the year last year. The duration of the season they only had twenty twenty four sacks so Georgia has been getting after it and book will be honest heels the whole game we'll see though Ian Book right now five and Oh on the road as a true starter and that Qbr is around eighty six the fourth best road Qbr in all of FBI. Not The game. We can't wait to talk about is going to be this right here. Shifting gears here's to Madison big game between big ten between Michigan and Wisconsin. FBI Heavily favors the Badger seventy percent chance of winning and of course all eyes are going to be on Jonathan Taylor who rushed for over one hundred yards in twenty four of his twenty nine game so villa. Will you rolling with right now. You're all with Jonathan Taylor or this Michigan Defense. Oh you better believe with Jonathan Taylor and that offensive line. He's going to get one hundred one hundred twenty five hundred fifty yards on his Michigan Defense and here's here's the thing about Michigan's defense it is not it is not the defense of last year. I don't know what does defense is. I'm not saying they're bad defense. I'm saying at the stars and the last year to contain a guy like Jonathan Taylor. They are not there so John Taylor offensive line have at it half on because it's going to be a route. I disagree with Vilma on this one. I think Jonathan Taylor will get his yards but you don't define a defense just by looking at how many total yard's looking at Jonathan Taylor's yards per carry. That's what I think will be interesting here. I looked at the army game where Michigan almost lost they only gave up to your point three yards per carry though they did give a Lotta yards so Jonathan Taylor he needs to have a big game. I think Michigan's defense will rise to the occasion but ultimately again. I think Michigan falls short because they just don't have enough. Go come on auto. You can't compare all armies deepens army's offensive line. Wisconsin's offensively grown men main on his offensive line and you're talking about a grown man running back with the JV. You know firsthand is a linebacker. There has to be some white. You give us chromatic. I'm not talking talking about Michigan Michigan. Rather Wisconsin's running game and armies running game running backs totally different but you gotta give some credit to army schematics playing that triple often. There's a little bit different so I give them some. Kudos some credence there but again Jonathan Taylor he'll get one fifty but one fifty on thirty carries is different than one fifty on ten Carrie. Yau Yeah remember Jonathan Taylor. He's facing Michigan before he normally averages one hundred and fifty yards a game right now. Michigan's held him held into around one hundred ten yards so he has had a little bit of struggles goes against that wolverines front another game. Texas am in Auburn looking forward to this on this one's Kinda crazy looking guys the home team. It ain't home cooking six of the last seven years. The road team has actually won that so who do you trust more in this one. Take your pig Bo Knicks or Aggie quarterback Kellen on man. I'm taking Kellyn Mine and I'm taking what you just showed me that graphic. I gotTA throw it off the window personal experience when I played Texas am I remember number my sophomore year. The year we went to the National Championship. The stage was bigger than me. I just have to be honest. I was out there and I was like a coach. I was rotating with the guy at the the time and I didn't mind being subbed out because the aggie started rocking in their seats and the stage was bigger than me. Go Knicks has been solid thus far because he's a true freshman we've probably given. I am too much praise but he only asked four touchdowns two picks on the ear. It's not like he's been astounding Kellyn Mon on the other hand. He's made some freak type of plays. Its home environment. When he's an older quarterback. I expect him to thrive in this setting now completely disagree. Acho this looking at the game offensive line Defensive Line Defensive Line for Auburn one of the best in the country bursts offensive line Texas saying them. They're okay when the last time the Texas offensive line faced a legitimate a defensive line clemson what Clemson do beat the brakes off them with three down linemen and then they rotate ago. Oh that defensive front. I'm telling the offensive. Auburn's defensive line is going to give the offense alive protect saying that all they can handle so. It's a wash between even even in that game though even that game it's not as if Trevor Lawrence had field day. It's not as if t lawrence do for five tugs and no interceptions so. I just think that they can surely hold Bo Knicks it Bay Bacon. Hey can lease confused Trevor Lawrence at times you would think that a freshman or role in their feeling good about himself three and we beat Auburn. We beat Oregon rather feeling great. I I just think he might be in for a rude awakening. The one thing I think because how you feel when you were three and would you can't that is talking to the moment was too big for you. I don't think it's going to be too big for Bo Knicks right. I mean Bo- oh nick. I Trust a whole lot more on the road than I do at Emmanuel Acho early in his career kind of real quick. How cool is this. Jimbo Fisher right actually was the quarterback coach for Bo Knicks Dad way back in the day when he was over at Auburn so this is kind of crazy family connection between Jimbo Fisher Boat Nixon his dad looking forward to that when we get a lot more coming up on college football live listen you guys are already. We're GONNA talk about two teams. Completely different difference starts but you've got to throw that out of the window when rivals meet Lhasa guys who need this win more gators or balls and we're GonNa Go Channel Surfing on college football live with a great great week four slate gains including why the PAC twelve has a playoff game in September jellied Woodville why is presented by ice cold.

We are glad that with. It's GonNa be a good one in Athens. GonNa be a good one in Gainesville. Let's take a look at Dr Pepper Championship drive game of the Week Preview Florida Florida Tennessee squaring off this week but since o five this matchup has been anything but a good one gators have won thirteen to the last fourteen part. There's a vol's averaging averaging almost three turnovers a game less than twenty points a game in that one Bella when we look at it Mullen with the Florida gators Jeremy Pruitt try to turn things round evolves who needs US win more. Dan Mullen needs is win more. I'm not going to Belabor the mediocrity that Jeremy pruitt is has sat in right now it tells us that Tennessee Dan mullins reason that there's desperation mode of Florida because they still have at Lsu they still have Georgia so they have any chance of when the SEC east and finding themselves sec championship game this is a must win for the Florida Gators and Dan Mullen. I absolutely agree with you. Dan Mullen the needs this game because Florida's still has a ton to play for their playing for championships. Sec Championships and maybe they can stumble in some sort of playoff contention with the few wins a a few breaks go in their way Tennessee on the other hand they really trick things off after week one and if not they put the icing on the cake with that week to lost to Byu. It's imperative the gators. Get this win yeah but I'll tell you what guys don't sleep on. Jerry PRUITT's squad right. Dana is back for the VOL's. You GotTa Derrius Tony. That's banged up. Cj Henderson Jabari Zuniga for Florida's kind on a banged up and he's questionable Burns Burns with this where I'm telling this Tennessee will upset the gators in gainesville coming up this weekend and and if they don't show the tape I'm going big. We think we need we need ten push ups right now. How that Tennessee is going. WHO's game. Hey I'll give me ten to one odds. I'm good for that Channel Surfing over for week four four and those who start off so what game could not wait for this weekend man Utah. USC that one gets me real excited and it should get the nation excited. Utah was the teams a lot of teams pick to be in the College Football playoff. There are a lot of analysts pick gravity in the College Football Playoff Tyler Huntley that mosque those players don't get enough credit because because they play for Utah but they're solid on offense and defensively only given up nine point three year nine point six points per game. Keam slowness has been volun- at USC because of his talent live but it's GonNa be a tough one otto. I see Tyler Hartley. I'm GONNA raise you a Hank Bach buyer boise state when you have siblings named bear tiger. You recruited a quarterback. You know he's GonNa do something good for you. True Freshman starting at Boise State all all these done is when baby and he's going to continue I can't wait to watch him foxfire the quietest quarterback that we don't talk about complaints phenomenal and and then we take it all the way over now to UCF team who by the way needs to get a shot out because they are legitimate contender if they run the table. We're going to college football playoff. Why do you say because they had a defense this year a defense that can actually play ball. You saw what happened to Stanford. Stanford looked like a J. P. T. A. J. B. Team Against UCF fast team. I can't wait to see them. Play against pick and roll on you know who's been maybe the most exciting team to watch all year B. Y. You win overtime win against USC over time against a Tennessee and then we want a tough lost to Utah this Washington Byu Games exciting because Jacobson's on the field and that's a former stuff at quarterback who's going to win that one. I'm just excited at the C. Jacobson and his potential versus stingy the Y you defense guys you're talking about studs on as quarterbacks how about Joe Borough Right. He looks like he's a member ever Cobra Kai right now and the numbers that he's putting up as nothing short of fantastic. They're going on the Road Vandy Newman kickoff game eighty three percent of his passes. He's completing cleaning. That's crazy. Lsu Fans keep pending themselves going. Is this real it continues to be real and get ready for Dave. Arandas defensive finally looked like they we are a championship contending defense. I championship contenders Jonathan Vilma right and he's got his JV's Joan Squad look that JV be who role with this man. We're rolling without Auburn Defensive Line. That's why I'm calling them out because they are supposed to be the best defensive line in the country talking about Nick Code Derrick Brown Marlon Davidson show meet something this is now your chance Derrick Brown to show why you you are supposed to be the best defensive tackle in the SEC. I WANNA see the one on ones too late but versa Texas saying names of the world versus the FCC west powerhouses of the world and then Marlon Davidson all we coming off F get sacked or are we just going to mess around this time where you impose oh you will as a defensive line for Auburn because you have a true freshman starting quarterback entering the SEC west and now the time to show exactly why everyone's one said that nick they're Brown. Were the best tandem in college football at that defensive lines position. I WanNa see them imposer. Will that's my the job on squad of the week. Oo Alright Ingraham ready for this Saturday. It's week. It is a big week by the way Ah get ready to do some push-ups because I'm telling you double down there. We got more coming into one is alive. Listen I'll do the push ups over the SEC SEC network. I'll just go over there right home for more. ACC SPORTS GET ACC IN DOT COM check for providers in your area and if you don't see it demand that they carry the the ACC network all right coming up we have JV's jawbone squad now autos ablest including why the eyes of Texas will actually be on Oklahoma player earlier this weekend. No no one's been part of more first days of work than car heart and in the same way rookies have to keep earning respect car heart never stops earning the respect of hardworking people people like you from building rugged dear. That's tougher than any. I are worst day of work to reengineering the classics to outworked the future. Trust your car hearts to keep doing doing their job long after you begin doing yours since eighteen eighty nine car hearts got your back twenty four seven visit car dot com forward slash. CFP Let's consider the secret life of the most nesting doll living most of her life in the dark inside the other nesting dolls. He has plenty of time to think if we could sadly career has no brain however when nesting doll here's the Kyko not only save people money but also has been providing great service for over seventy five years. She thinks because it's obvious you should switch because yes switching to gyco is a no brainer pitied the innermost nesting doll and her lot in life in college football. Why is presented by Ice Cold Dr Pepper the visual drink vange bill. I'm ready for that's on Saturday Oklahoma State Dundee's coming on the twelfth in Texas from Austin. Seven thirty eastern six thirty central on ABC the ESPN APP or Saturday night football game presented by Wells Fargo looking looking forward to a little odd chose aimless a storyline game in player. I'll show you got first things. Up is the story line now. Let me paint this picture for Y'all Oklahoma State has beat Texas four consecutive time seven out of the last eight that means Texas players even if they were red shirts have yet to beat Oklahoma state if I beat a team four times. I start to feel like I own them. Oklahoma State is going in Austin. Austin better have a chip on their shoulder the city and the team this is going to be a heck of a game because there's a lot of firepower now for me a list game you got. Notre Dame and you have Georgia. It's the nameless game because playoff off game played in September. If Notre Dame loses that's it for them. They're out. They don't have enough strength on the rest of their schedule to rebound from this and Georgia. Are you a one one team behind Clemson and Bama or do you belong in the exact same breath as Clemson and Bama. This is a huge game early on in the season. I love a list player. My Guy Jonathan Taylor your freshman year. You set the freshman rushing record. You're more year at the sophomore rushing record. Let's junior year. What are you going to do. It's time for you to let the whole nation know who the best running back. Here's some people want to say in. Some people want to say the Andrea Swift well. How in Madison is time. Everybody says jt not just in Madison but nationwide. I'm excited to see that player a-list play. They're talking about him. Possibly being the the greatest Wisconsin running back of all time but that's pretty high praise considering Ron Dane was out there speaking of the greatest things part of college football one fifty. We're talking about the greatest innovations and how about the four pass in one thousand nine hundred thirteen when new rock me as a player coach. Notre Dame comes to New York and they shock army using a radical tactic called before would pass most important change in college football the advent of the four pass us no question until then basically rugby and your smash Mouth Football. It's too dangerous at got the game away from just the big guys now speed matters. It adds speed aid and skill. He's got three people down there worlds the forward pass creates a dramatic moment in the game that really makes it a thousand times more dynamic and more gripping ten more popular than a cloud of dust every now and then but board pass that Bulls floating in the air by touchdown bears okay story of LSU season the Ford past the greatest presented by tonight seven pm always streaming live on the ESPN APP all right other television news and notes HBO announced announce that a couple of teams are going to be there. Twenty four seven sports series like hard knocks right. How about this we got Florida Penn State Arizona State in Washington state ought to get their chance to show off for the camera. Gentlemen Joe will start with you which one of these you can't wait to watch how about the sleepy pick Arizona State and Herm Edwards y the Herm Edwards is a walking quote machine from your play to win the game. I mean I'm waiting to watch that from sunup to sundown on my I just Rican. Take US quotes and steal them as my own you know me JV. Oh I know you'll still be will stop. It's all good though not gonna WanNa Watch Mike. Lees might leads. It is the funniest coach out there forget college football. NFL just the funniest coach period. I can watch his interviews all day long. I will pay to watch his interviews and to watch that show. I'm looking forward to that honestly. I'm kind of looking forward to Florida as well too because Dan Mullen is probably going to be upset that I picked Tennessee to beat Florida this week. You you know who the star that's going to be. It's going to be his wife Meghan Mullen. She's like the team mom for the gators and listen when you're dealing with kids like Vilma Nacho. You gotTa have somebody somebody in charge that the whole team yeah you're looks. I just don't want to always have to beat Acho for trying to take my lunch money and still myself. That's all that's all. That's all that is the thing I think. The gators will be pretty dope but I'm just Jealous Watson them because they're Jordan brand and I feel like we're gonNA see a new pair of Jordan kicks or Jordan gear each and every episode and I'm GonNa be Hayden Eaten. I'M NOT GONNA lie to you. I'll tell you just said that. You want them to bring you some free gear. It ain't happening buddy sorry about that. John Ville.

Get it now for just three bucks and get a two dollars sausage mcmuffin with egg or a one dollars small hot coffee all from the one two three dollar menu simply your breakfast at McDonald's prices and participation may vary canopy combined with any other offer Combo meal <hes> let's go ahead and talk about them. Gators man indulgent gators air about that we've been lion king but these gators bitch we hear already and don't know in a love it too because <hes> just a bunch of mine on business ain't been bother. Nobody actually being living in harmony with people yeah in the storm hitting they lay shit police around the Super Bowl victory historic that cold blooded they know how to line. Wait wait and wait and wait for the right moment. Tell you meant for you know reasoning alligators just lost their fucking minds when they just waited for storm here they waited for the laws to lead and they said we about to have a buffet up in and that is where we get into it with crawl all now crawl is not only for the gators and how they moved but also is a story of Haley. Now what does Haley's named the actresses she's from Kaley Sakado who was in the maze runner series no he's the the guy said doco ever name. Mistake cute just messed. You didn't know either. I try to say this. What is named Chris? Did he took the name of the character name. Just Haley's we leave me stuff Funchal Nog. I looked girls because you just just assaulted this girl trying to say her name right here like the alligators in do enough. You just took a name. It just spun around you. Try to say look it up. Kaya Kaikoura Skoda Lara got the care. You got one Leonard Right but Kaya Scott Lario plays Haley and Haley. She is going into town when they tell best again and see. That's what these talking about. They say you know what is going to be some some some dumb white. People come this tale when the hurricanes going on. We're going to be a horror movie logic. We're talking about why people stereotypes should be mad about these gators. They you yeah well we in a horror movie. There's a hurricane going on some white people come to town when people tell them not to do it and when they get here you know just gonNa eat these and leaving missed then nobody even miss missed the man but she's coming to town for reason. Her Dad is missing in and she oh shit yeah yeah. Mrs May go and find him now. She just being a good daughter. Meanwhile dead is dumb. It was voted. They're telling people leave town days under house trying to fix wires people just like men. This House is GonNa be here in the middle of a hurricane. That's what he's fixing all this in the flood zone like what's going to be underwater people say menace Tabernacle even exist and you try to listen. You're trying to fix the bottom of the house. Nobody even see now. They tried to explain because well. There's a lot of good memories here with him sentimental value this is bad because if I'm sure it's set up to make people go like Aha that's all those dumb people in those storm areas with the floods and they stay and this would happen so that's what they get and it was time people stay because they can't afford to leave well. No they could afford to leave just to stupidly. I'll tell you allow people just cannot afforded pack up and more and this ain't this movie. I talk about talking about life talking about sadie making other people who go see that's all of them. Ninth is moving. Not these characters these characters. I feel sorry for those people but the bottom of so that's why they call it crawl because father's under the House doing some Dumb Shit Florida's issued a category five hurricane warning and he says so what to cares. I'm still a fix. He's under the house trying to fix it. She's trying to save him. There's gate is out there trying to get them in so they're forced to crawl not only to get away from these gators but to crawl and get him out before the bottom of the house actually floods and they drown are they. Don't get swept away so there's a lot going up against these folks. Will they survive. Will we can't tell you that but we can't tell you with the move in a good or not and we'll do that wash trailer to crawl. We'll be back with our review. The State of Florida has issued a category five hurricane warning all residents evacuated immediately families it will of words get out and we will be able to come for you that wasn't in the movie by the way was it not even get out there. <hes> even ongoing broadcast thank. It's got to see this movie less than an hour movie banging on the I sessions I can distract him for you. Got You need to go now. I'm not leaving you here. No this is we see alligator. Bite her arm with the last night. That's not the end of the movie why you want Me To sports mattress Katherine here you go. I'm GonNa tell you I'm not telling you. This is good bad but I'm GonNa tell you something about this movie that I when I was out I was like damn if nothing else they kept a simple you know they and I'm imagining this is about design this film they say what you see is exactly what you get in his trailer. Alligators try to eat people stuck in a hurricane that is it yeah they know twist. There's nothing been Deepa complicated with this this whole thing with these alligators and whether eating people you know there's no explanation for it. It's like there's no big environmental message on why these allegations are going crazy. It's not because climate change is drawing them. Insane are we built condos windows on the on their habitat or something and they weren't experimental alligators. Thank you know they know they know they don't have like human brains and Lizard bodies. This is the twists not like Jurassic Park or some sort of the genetic tampering. You know straight up Florida alligators. Doesn't it man they don't. They don't don't even get a reason why these allegations are attacking man like I said I mean there's not there's no reason for this except for if you stupid enough to stay here in a hurricane you deserve to die like you said what they establishes that Florida much like the cabin from evil dead. It's also its own horse setting yes. It's like don't don't live here and they do kind of establish why the allegations are so aggressive through the door. They indicate what it is in the trailer. Yeah no they do but why even chose to do this. Why why they did is only thing you have to say like even alligators in Florida on a hold of the crazy love? It is they'd Dukan explain what about is like they don't. They don't have anybody come out and say. This is why they're so crazy. No you either get are you don't because these are goddamn dinosaurs. That's why they've existed exists for over one hundred million years and we should be living in the same environment that they are in. What I like about? This film is that it's just a simple survival story. It's going back to basics and you got to lead actors who are completely invested or selling the entire concept. I like it that how just like dirty this movie now. They're just like they are literally crawling through shit and muck and drain water and sewer sewer water and they're selling it because of that. They're selling the concept with how over the top it is. It works in that way because that's the thing and it's a disaster movie and it's a hard movie and it's you know it's also a thrill you know they've managed in a very simple straightforward film to put in a lot of kind of little sub genres at closely relate to each other and they all have their place to play like the alligators and not the. The big thing here you gotta deal to hurricane on you know these people have injuries that they're trying to trying to get through right. You know it's it's cool you know what they're doing here with a very simple concept but alligators do play a big part of it and and this this was this funny because it's what I did. It was before this kind of like they're like why me what who the fuck is GonNa care if we eat these people but please don't come to him. Arrest a bunch of allegations. You know these people they stay back. I don't care if they did it because they had a good reason. You Know Haley cares about dead. I don't care because data just data just dumb you know the thing. is they out here anyway. So why waste all this good meat that we got I will say I think they do establish good enough reason for why she's going out. Their Dad might be an idiot but for her the reason why she's out there and why other people are out there too. It's like you could see this kind of stuff happening on the news ridiculous as it might be. He's like yeah. I believe that I could see how this would happen. In Florida dead is the only one Barry Pepper Barry pepper trying to remember his last name though so both of them were in the maze runner. Yeah that's true yeah. That's right both of them. We're in a maze runner. That's that's probably got. He gets bear job coming. You're not going to afford those saving private. Ryan checks coming in like mouth count on last May's remove the please. You want to buy allegation. I'll do but now that's what I'm saying. It's like a lot of things in there and all work together. The all have the moment and I like movies like that where they combine like wow as if it's not enough to worry about this one thing yeah now we gotta worry about elements. I gotTA worry about alligators. Now I gotta worry about the weather you know and and they do Haley does have a very good reason to go out there and everybody everybody that's out. There is even if it's for reasons that they shouldn't be out there. It's a reason yeah you know that they have no. Nobody's nobody's move is dumb. Nobody's doing dumb things and for the most part like us who noughties alligators will be going fucking crazy this your out here in the middle of of an area where yeah we've seen them. Should I say hi to allocate every day this establishing you live in the areas through signs everywhere like danger. This is an alligator allegation eating those allegations a plan hurricane him agitate genocide in Rwanda where you're next like all right. It's on I I get to each afterwards like hey man. I hope we can still be cool after I cut your arm on you know about on each you and shit you out in verse but Yeah Man I think was cool and I thank you probably will agree with me on this. <hes> trying to find trying to find shot at one gators right here or there go there. We go and I don't know if gate is really do this but they just they stay in the shows they cut on like these like laser. Beam is is allred and they just sit back growl and just telling you to looking at people but they can detect you through movement. That's a good job of explain through Barry Pepper. It's kind of like exposition of what alligators can do. They have typically bad eyesight except they can't see you in the dark and like very dark and furniture to make sense because they are in the crawlspace in the basement so it makes them dangerous. They're really attracted to sound and make effective use of that in the film. They really do a good job of explaining leaning throughout the course of the movie. What these allegations abilities are it sounds it goes along with what you see in nature documentary watering holes and taken out wildebeest the way they'll just sit there and just just lock all the thin multiple ones? Do they have a big as much as it just made the least sound oh yeah because they can. They'll wait you out. They'll say hey I'm just a log moving. We'll do that in yeah. It's a you know the there's no big character development here eat them. You know it's like <hes> the different alligators ain't got different. Personalities not one called blue. No no one convoy ain't they don't like tag team each other to help out. There's just big bigger in Hungary and that's it <hes> Berry Berry Bear Pepper in the movie his biggest personality trait. He's hurt this. He's on the Ground Haley all God that's him right <hes> and then Haley herself our biggest character development. She swims fast and that's going to be in of course they spend the whole whole I five minutes of the movie just laying out. She's on the swim team. She's a great swimmer so that you know there's going to be this action scene where she's going to be like out swimming. Five alligators probably late on the film which is smart so that prevents people from critiquing. The cannot run that guy no she can. It's like okay fair enough all right yeah. That's that's that's probably the biggest amount of character development that you're GonNa get movie which normally that would be. A bad thing. Sent me this movie's our and twenty seven minutes waste time is minutes and that's when you see all the action yeah they they got to set up what they have to be got a premise to get done with and we're GONNA get right to everybody let's get on and and they're playing with so so many different associated with so many different elements that they gotta Kinda Juggle all this stuff and they don't WanNa waste time on this man. It's not a move that needs to be two hours and they know that that's good. I I like that. I like that idea. Is it moves so quickly. Alligators don't give they don't even get a big intro meant when we first and then we first alligator we all like God. Damn you only want to set this would hailers. There's a tag alligators but when attack and that's what we see what the fuck but in the movie they don't get it is probably the most anticlimactic intro seen like Haley crawls and near where she hears a dad and <hes> and her dad is like Oh yeah Haley you looking good and by the way be careful. There's a there's allegation out there like no. There's a fucking tearing it and they're like well. You know we're in Florida man. Everything is crazy here. They kinda established that that they they're used to seeing alligators and this is Florida and this is this is something net. They probably have seen alligators down the open. Maybe not this aggressive aggressive so it's not a big deal for them. Which Kinda even I think they kinda really ask the movie for me because I don't WanNa see people get really overdramatic about this? Oh God the gators they're finding patterns on. It's Kinda like their animals and into in really the people kind of like listen. We don't have time to be dramatic. We gotta get the Fuck Outta here. If it ain't for the GATORS WE'RE GONNA drown. Let's just let's we'll we'll panic later. This is this is move. Gives you just waiting. Look let the elements kill you first because as we get you're going to soften Yup. That hurricane is kind of like was shit. You know at least Florida Manning here you WanNa kill those games fucking games. You would've seen him afloat. Matt Ryan negated saved them yeah man. I think what's what's what they get right here. It was really impressive is the C._G.. Yeah I was surprised because this is a low budget movie about like thirteen million dollars and you could tell where the money went into these the practical effects seen what the what they do with the water inside the house but then also all that went to the gators and they do some really fun things with them some stuff that's over the top. It's appropriate for this kind of because they established. How kind of exaggerate badgering needs to be when they do a great job of the gators holiday eat people take him out there? Oh my God they fucked one do they unless it's like somebody put a if you could put a person of garbage disposal oh they're still alive and it was like you put somebody in a blender is going every direction twisted the morale and do not want to do the alligator tangle because they would take in twirl. You'll be missing a limb they they which is accurate together yeah they they fought one dude up and I'm sitting in I I am sitting in. I'm sitting in in in in Anaheim in I'm sitting there with strangers. I don't know anybody there and one those gators they fucked that dude up so bad and it was such a cool death. means do won't ever Sieg in my life. We will vote like and I looked at him. He's like no fucked about. I'm not learning you man some dude. I didn't even know s how bad it's a and they don't bond strange. Bond over death and I gotTa tell you is not heavy on Gore like you said it's a low budget. It's low budget but that you sound very effectively device you hear them tearing the flash in ripping the bones out of the sockets and seen they do they do a good job with screams of these horrific. Oh yeah the sound of the sound of them attacking the sound of an sounded injuries million bones to snap in but the sounds of the gators themselves listen you know the gators. What's cool about this animation this C._G._I.? Animation it doesn't feel like animation. It looks good at least from read up on a maybe I'll know the trainees. Alligators puts a hat Matai craft services heating indicators but they and I know these people weren't it's an appear being this close to alligators the whole time so some you know if not most has had to have been C._J.. I wouldn't be surprised they used gators at some point somewhere but I wouldn't. I I don't think so but these these <hes> they feel like animals. It doesn't feel like they have wait muscles move as as they should convincingly none of this feels like you know how you see C._G.. Animation it feels is like a cartoon fluid to rubbery. Yeah does does not feel like an animated cartoon these fill. This feels like you're watching A.. Nature documentary where they just film people getting killed sometimes they do. They do a great away of conveying. Just how big there because they bump into stuff and they can't fit through things and you could see how the environment itself is moving around and we're trying to get buckled under their weight so that they do a good job with that yeah yeah the the sound that they do sound is great. You know the from the Gut roars that these new guttural sound yeah and it's you hear you here in the darkness and everything that's that's kind of thing that works for this to technically is a lot of great stuff they do here <hes> and when you talk about how these gators move man you it's it's the it's the attacks that a scary because it's like you said Martin you hit it right there they like they. You know they <hes> AH gator you know will they will take this. We don't ever have to go nowhere with the gate it because they would take this. We moved me when I'm ready to go. They would take time and and they do that because they see they see the victims and they they take a slow like what were you going go. We know how there's only one way. This is going in. We all day among go for swim. You come back. I'll I'll still be here but the moment that was funny. Money is the moment that something looks like it's going to get away. That's when they'll that's the biggest are moving but should on a home and when they in and when they <hes> when when they move that's when he gets scary man and because they're sneaky too. It's like they moved quickly. They move fast and sometimes you just can't hear them is is like they and that's probably the only early harm UBI trope. That's going on here because you dealing with big ASS. Alligators man and name making no sounds well. They explained that but the fact that the hurricane is happening the rushing water in the rain so it'd be even more difficult to here especially when into crosby's in the basement. We're all that sounds just reverberating all round you it's disorienting and also disorienting for them but that's why I think it's easy for them to sneak up on these people and you kind of buy into that sort of their motive attack is that they're always so slow and you'd think that even yeah I saw it. Come in. I can move out but once they speed up because I said it can outrun you on land there the kid I saw them. GATORS wear nikes man running after Peop Zuid it is just but not I think what it was is that I can like. You're saying that's the motive attack I get that I think what it was for me is that they showed how they're working in use it how they work in these small confines and he's small space and they make a lot of a lot of noise and they move around. There's not at least some some parts you get them out an open and that's women you don't hear anything but in the confined space of this house especially at the bottom of it. I thought that you'll be able to hear more at 'cause. That's you know there are parts where they they really go down to two straight out you know Har- movie tropes of it's like you said what'd you tell me over these these allegations of the Michael Myers enjoy Jason Voorhees alligators yeah they just teleport. It's got a no way caters to compete okay. You never found guys get even make a splash uh-huh. Maybe he was looking attention to know. There's not you can get it even make us play okay first of all Oh dude even help himself. He deserved what he got. You WanNa harm move. There's no har movie you know better in any harm move you do not standing in front of an empty doorway stand in front of a hole in just look to the side when you do that is always going to be a knife that comes out a hand that grabs you are fucking gates you just staying here you know and the thing is I think you're right. I think the gator was there and he just like shit this is this is too easy wearing bright yellow grabbing now. That's going to be so much more dramatic the wait till he looks away. Just like you know go yeah. Boys Watch this call you buddy looking limit starburst uh-huh taste the rainbow busy and that's the thing about it man like real like like alligators. They have real mannerisms like alligators too. They sit back. That's that's the kind of the scary thing too is that they feel like real animals. Because web studied the animation for these alligators actually studied there you know they're hunting mannerisms that the methods of intimidation their moments where you know they sears the day stand by somebody and then could produce some but they just fuck with people. There's a part where there's a there's a part in here where where where we're Haley. She's a she's actually like hiding hiding somewhere trying to wait to get out and there's a lightning flash and there's just a gate of just sitting. There was my mouth LETO CDs teeth machete moment down the waiting. Maybe just listen to accidentally step into there are there there are those moments you're not wrong. Yeah I guess the I guess that's the thing that also with these alligators man when I say that this is a horror movie because I mean he's alligators really are more aggressive than I think. Alligators are in life. You know I mean do that for the sake of being a horror movie <hes> <hes> you know they really aggressive man and you and you and it gets to a point where you don't even think that they're just doing this to eat. People just like a gang is that he just being assholes. I talk about this sir. I keep thinking of a movie from beg back in the seventies but you probably know I think it's called the amazing Dobermans with Ado stuck in James Brolin where yeah yeah he's got stuck in a store yeah and the guard dogs that Dobermans chasing him all nine yeah yeah. I'll see if I can look because that's it's not quite like that. Because that move I remember that movie some do was trying to doing some shady shit thief and he didn't know they had domains and they're ready to eat his ass and he had to like crawl over the top of the of the of the racks and stuff. It's a great concept but you know what I guess. It's Kinda close in the sense that they did take a concept to put an interesting setting you know but these people have so much to worry rebound. Hurricane Hurricane is hidden man. It's used a great effect and how it destroys the environment around them in how like Elliot's are even in certain scene because they're getting fucked up to like Oh shit. They're getting out of the way because they see what's coming. Yes we're just letting the water be a horror element in this and naturally for like you said it's part disaster movie to over the top like something like Rohan C._g._I.. And stuff but it's like that it's effective enough to where it's really works. He's right. There's a scene where Al Gate is like just a back to get his. He's about to Bigham at a wave got him. You seem like I'm GonNa get you hold on. I mean that's one thing determine mayor yeah yeah astles. I mean they show some carcasses. Left ain't even eat these dues man. That's accurate to Algiers what they do is they will tear your part or they'll like do that. The death toll underwater and then they put you in like some reads or something. Let you like soften-up get blowed in Napa eating you explanation for it. Then you go science Christmas besides some of this up after it's actually do they do okay fair enough with home. Watch Animal Planet <music> gator coats and shadow Stevens went up when you when you mentioned that I if they did a convincing enough up job to where I thought especially show why the allegations and what they did I said might not be obvious but there's a reason for everything and it's not as far fetched as as it comes across farfetched to me <hes> the ad no but I will tell you what the far fish thing is. It's not the animal behavior even that is pushed over just a little bit for the sake of Har. I think that you know they're more aggressive than gators will probably be in life like this but it's not that so much that you're looking at it. You can't buy is the injuries that they give because they you know I mean the their moments. In here. Were Haley Gates. I mean she gets chomped on Man Yeah Eh dragging her around and there's a with their things that they doing here what they should kill her like. I told you marinate. You look look look this up their moments. They do her like they did. Those dues in Indiana Jones do they fell down and allegations eight eight point. They were like nothing but close love the way they just put screams over there tangle trolling around those you they just close this legal matter on me then you now man fellows people and I'll tell you want that really got fucked up Jones. I do the hit that cliff on his way. That's the best one they gotTA. Catches me. Yeah we scrapes his head against the tender is they just eating sleeves even even meet you have seen like that in the movie yeah and it's great and they do what you see there. They do that too. Certain people in the movie and people just come out with just cut Haley Haley chomped down so hard and so many times in his movie in in ways that she should actually lose. She should be number two torso. Yeah I see that just from the clips yeah that's kind of unbelievable thing man. She like alligators like big ones. They drag her way. They bite her arm and you like. There's no way she would get away from that. Oh Yeah I'm here actually go take another police station you sit in. There's no way girl she got her top job was trying to act like them raw raw that would be gone no more competitive swimming for her. No unless you WanNa go to Special Olympics up to one League Cup did look up. I look up science facts of Chris really the bite of gator will not like chop the lemon half. What does it is when they thrash around like that? They don't bite off. They rip it off. He bumped your bone POPs. They did thrash around and there's one party here where they do that to somebody. That is convincing. Do it was not what's not convincing is that they pop somebody breaks somebody's arm and have and somebody just like Oh. Oh turn it no totally fine you would be you would be shock. You be gone for the rest of the movie scriven. My are having conversations late just happen having heart to heart. What are you doing your your shirt is not going to be able to hold back the amount of blood that you're gonNA lose yeah well? How how infectious are they bites? They're not like Komodo dragons or anything. No no I mean with all that's going on. Oh I'm sure they're living in Iran suicide. Imagine not great you would develop an infection eventually immediately. You will get immediate gangrene if the alligator don't kill you the shit will they and they are like the crawling inch in their own their own ship yeah yeah that's another thing Florida basements Hor horrific that that is the new horse setting that what it should Oh my God these are your basements is where you live. I'm scared the turn those turds or those guys who just can't and they mentioned mentioned some of that's Yeah You all these people surfing and hurricanes and said I'm not even worried about the danger now. I'm like you imagine all the sewage and shit. That's going to be coming up. I don't tell people in floods happen in the aftermath they had till people don't swim in. I mean you may look if you have to. You probably end up getting Bob but don't do it if you don't have to because it destroys the sewer systems on that's all coming up yeah. That's one thing that made me cringe. It's flown alone all around absolutely no the setting is really imaginative. Ineffectively gross yeah you know the simplicity is is is the thing that's going to probably get to people because I think that the simplicity is <hes>. It is something that's benefit to the film yet. I'd I don't want this to end up being an amusement park ride at some point. I did think that there were times. They could push it a little bit. Better are a little bit for further. I thought the the the hurricane in the disaster stuff I thought man maybe I could adopt creative things but that and that would have been cool that they had but you are going into the area of now. We're doing some like you say rolling Emmerick Michael Bay type thing and this is not really going into that area no they did just enough and like the last author the movie which primarily takes place in the house. I thought they do enough affective stuff where it is over the top. It's like I could conceivably see this. How the gators are like in the second floor and things like okay? They establish why they're up there now. They know yeah yeah they they. They explain a lot <hes> this to get you with some moments two minutes a dog in here. I'm not I'm not I'm not. I'm not saying this as a dog person. Either this you don't you don't want to see the dog. Get it because the gators something that even worried about it dog and get swept up by this water and they do so with that water gets that dog and they show him going away his laser just actual stuck talking like a plastic yard to elicit that doesn't effective after because every time they turned that talks like what are we hear you bring me. I was perfectly safe where we go outside and he's like the dog was pretty much daily about her. I was trying ought to get this motherfucker the league do now. We got got down gators. Fuck Him. Let's go yeah I think a lot people are so I mean you know maybe maybe people still affected by in game where they used to see something. Keep going and going because the movie very simple in plain ending to not say what it is but it's just a look. It's just it's just is. It's it's yeah it's some screen I was that some people were like. That's it yeah and even got the crowd out because once was created the critics came up to like see you later early gator comments Ed Hey y'all we always increase your spiderman cater. The top Y'all know man is done yeah. Some people just kind of like wow that's that's it and I thought I could I get it you know some people felt like and I think it's probably another credit to the film because I think people felt like they wanted more and some people going to feel like I don't even know but really feel like I got my money's worth with it. Is I mean you gave me all the basics. Some people are going to be satisfied with the basics GONNA want this to go over the top but I think a lot of times that people appreciate <hes> The thrills that they do get from. I think so yeah the theater I was in Nana Sloven yeah they really but you're absolutely right. The ending will leave most people wanting even I was like okay but I still still felt like I got my money's worth experiencing what I saw a man I mean I'd like I said I was fist-bump. Strange amend it doesn't see somebody die. It'll get torn apart now and it didn't get gratuitous man silly and some parts with injuries and whatnot but it's on purpose I think yeah the moves real self-aware to it needs to be again. This is it Sam Raimi's not directly but you can feel his influence. You can feel that evil dead influence. It's like it's a serious subject but we're going to have fun with white works so well. Being a serious subject you think is a problem with them. Releasing this movie this weekend New Orleans no so I mean look. I don't think it's a problem. They planned releases a longtime sometime ago. It already got released on Friday. That hit is just like a like. We call now floods fortunate coincidence now. I know they didn't plan it but a lot of times that screws up movies like every time somebody hit a movie with a playing going crashing around nine eleven sorry yeah I think I think wooding Spiderman then more thanked on moving and do well okay are probably didn't do there was any effect on it at all. It would be yeah it would be toy story and spider man okay but you know that's as it man <hes> I mean now in those fluids of gay to start attacking all right somebody's marketing. This studio put gators in there you all no not do contract. We crawled <music> gators revenge Integral Direct D._V._d.. New knows they might do a sequel does I wouldn't be surprised McDougal straight to D._V._d.. And they brought it down thirteen sequels yeah they'll all go. The gators will look shit here in eating out for can be winning Pu float. He's got a matinee barley yeah I would. I would give it a high matinee. I think they do a lot of things with the concept. I like the fact that the the the actors are so dedicated this you can tell it they're having fun with the material the environments keeping it in a small setting. It's a bottle film base and that's that's what really works about the gators themselves interesting things they do with them and also just the hurricane self how it's a character. This is a fun movie. It's a great pallet cleanser for some of this. I told Corey <hes> in Texas. That's been inundated with disappointing sequels and remix. Go see this. It's a refreshing take on a creature feature high matinee yeah. I'd probably a little bit below you <hes> Yeah Matinee me as fun.

The Paul Finebaum Show

00:00 sec | 1 year ago

Hour 1: 4/22/19

"The Paul finebaum show podcast has been brought to you by the Capital One sabre card earned four percent cash. Back on dining and entertainment two percent of grocery stores and one percent on all other purchases. Now when you go out you cash in what's in your wallet terms apply. The pride passion, then Patrie of college. Football leaves here is the Paul finebaum show our one pint cast read we're sitting in for Paul today. It is an audio only version of the finebaum show today. So no TV if you are in the habit of listening online or listening on the radio, and then getting home from work on the TV you will not find the show there later on today because we are audio only. But that's all right, by the way. Why is it always audio only when I host Bill? I'm trying to figure that out John Hayes. I don't know if you have any feedback or it's it can't be a looks thing. Because Marty McGee have a show SEC network. So I know I'm not not too ugly to be on TV. But for whatever reason, it's always audio only when I'm hosting, but we'll still have a great show for you. Today. We have several topics to get to several guests to get to. We are going to attempt to talk a lot of college football here today on the show. I know that's that's generally the thing. But we just finished up the final SEC spring game with Georgia having played on Saturday. And now we can kind of look ahead as we're basically four months away. I know that still sounds like a really long time, and it is, but it's a lot closer than we were just a few months ago. Right. So four months away from the start of the season some of the takeaways from the spring, we're going to talk to Seth Emerson and. Little bit about Georgia. We're gonna talk to Matt Baker about the Florida Gators or talk a little ACC with Andrea Adelson Bill benders gonna come on later on. We're going to talk about the big ten, and then BarrOT Salih will join us later in the show to talk some SEC, of course. And so that's kind of what we got on the slate for you as we move ahead here on a Monday and the latter portion of April so last week, if you were a watching the show Seth Walder, our analytics guy who is in in my group here at ESPN, he was on with Paul to talk about the newest release of FBI the football power index, and you know, some of the SEC teams that were kind of in the mix for chance to make the playoff and stuff like that. And certainly a lot of interest in that in fact, actually while we're on the topic. I might as well throw out that we tweeted out earlier. Now that spring football is over. What is your biggest takeaway heading into this summer and Jerome replied that Alabama Clemson are still the two best teams and a lot of people agreed with them and F B I agrees with them that Clemson and Alabama by far the most likely teams to make the playoffs. But that doesn't mean they're the only two obviously, it's a fourteen playoff in. So Seth went through some of that with Paul last week. There are more numbers, however within the SEC that Seth didn't get into. I'm gonna throw some of those out. Now, we can talk about them later in the show if you wanna call in and this is all for fun discussion. So if you disagree go right ahead, accept these are not my ranking. So if you want to argue with the computer will be a good radio, right? All right. So SEC two thousand nineteen FBI says chance to get at least one team in the playoff ninety eight percent. So pretty much a lock that's. He's he's going to get at least one team in chance for two teams in the playoff sixty percent that feels a little high to me given there's only been one year that we've had a conference put two teams in the playoff. But it was the SEC and it was only two years ago almost happened again last year. So maybe that's not off base. Sixty sixty percent chance for the SEC to get teams in the playoff, by the way. FBI also says fifty eight percent for the big ten to get one team in so chance for the SEC to get to is pretty much the same as the chance for the big ten to get one a chance to win the SEC title, Alabama, forty seven percent, Georgia twenty-seven percent LSU. Eleven percent is third most likely then going down to Florida. It's six percent. And then Auburn and am at two percent. Each chance to win the SEC east Georgia. No surprise, the favourite heavy favourite. Sixty three percent, Florida. Twenty one percent. In Tennessee, checking in as the third most likely at eight percent, which obviously is not all that likely, but FBI, and there's a chance for the vaults chance to win the SEC west Alabama, huge favourite much like Georgia. Sixty five percent LSU is the the number two pick their by FBI. Twenty one percent chance to win the west. And then you've got an Auburn coming in at five percent each and then Mississippi State at at four percent, and I'll ask this question later on in the show. But I think it's an interesting thought as we look at this have have we gotten to a point now where we can almost say that there's balance in the SEC, I realized that everyone still believes that Alabama's the best team and that Georgia's right up there with Alabama, and they have been for a couple years. But I think maybe what we're starting to see is a little depth behind those teams where maybe the gap between them and the rest of the division isn't as big as it's been there. People that think that you know, LSU is a legit top five team of Florida. Some people think is a legit at least top ten team. And if that's the case, maybe we're finally getting to a point where these these conference races are division races might not be as much of a foregone conclusion as they've felt in the past. And certainly that's something that we'll talk a lot more about as we get into the summer and beyond last thing here from FBI as we open up the show projected wins for each team for this season. Now, this is including a the possibility for some of these teams of getting into the SEC championship game. And so these numbers aren't exact I've rounded them when I say half, it's simply because over the course of all these simulations sometimes they'll win seven games sometimes the win eight games, and it's right around in between. So I might say seven and a half. But I'm well aware. Aware you don't have to call enter tweet and let me know that you can't win half a game. All right here. We go. Projected wins. Alabama eleven Georgia ten and this is in the the regular season LSU nine and a half, Florida, eight Missouri. Eight Mississippi State, Auburn, Tennessee and Texas am all at seven and a half Kentucky seven, South Carolina. Six ole miss six vandy five Arkansas five what's interesting to me. There is looking at South Carolina at six wins. F B I believes the South Carolina is like a French top twenty team is far as how good they are the schedule. However is a completely different matter FBI rate, South Carolina, schedule as the most difficult and all of college football, obviously, they're hosting both Clemson and Alabama. And then have some very difficult road games in the conference. In addition to that AM's got a killer schedule to L A and M. I believe is ranked the second toughest schedule and am plays. All. Of the top four teams and FBI three of them on the road. So it's just a brutal year for teams in the SEC, especially if you're not named Alabama or Georgia and don't have more talent than everyone else all in all F, B I. And we said this back in February believes that the SEC has ten of the top twenty teams in college football, people can certainly dispute that and I'm sure some of you will and that's fine. But that's kind of the way we see it as we go into the seasons. If you have any comments on that or anything else than feel free to give us a call as always eight five five to four two seven two eight five eight five five two four two seven two eight five when we come back. We're going to talk a little Georgia football with Seth. Emerson. Your home is important. That's why gyco helps make it easy to save on homeowner's insurance because home is more than just a place home is where you have a cute little reading nut for those rainy days when you want to curl up with a good book. But you don't even read. So you just sit in there during. Under storms and scroll through memes on your phone and laugh in the darkness. The geiko insurance agency could help protect the dark mean filled corner, you call home call gyco in see how easy it is to switch and save on homeowner's insurance. Cried passion than patrons re of college football lives. Here is the Paul finebaum show. Our one podcast now joined by Steph. Emerson of the athlete. Welcome in Seth that taking me a little bit of getting used to saying that you are with the athletic, but it's been about a year now. All right. A little over a year anniversary was last week. We'll good deal. Always enjoy reading your stuff and catching up today on on Georgia football spring game on Saturday. It's a it's a wrap. Now, let's let's start with the quarterback situation, which has a very different feel from a year ago. Now, whether it was it was accurate to say at this time last year that there was a a real competition that Jake from hat on his hands with Justin fields. I don't know. It's hard for me to say, I know everyone wanted to make it a competition. It turned out not to be much of one but going into this spring and coming out of it. I think it's pretty obvious. This is Jake from team. Right. Right. And I think it was last year. But look anytime you recruit the nation's number one overall prospect there's going to be that kind of hanging in the background of. Well, what if he's so good? He has to play what he's so good. He actually beats out Jake femme you've got nothing like that this year. I mean, it's obviously J crumbs team and the interest from the quarterback standpoint for Georgia's spring was about who's going to be the backup. If something happens to j krom, it's you know, when when you have to really good quarterbacks as Georgia has had the last couple years the two previous years. They everyone says well, that's a good problem that this year. It's okay. Well, how bad is it if the crime goes down, and so people were trying to? Figure out over the growing. What did they have behind them? And that's it. I don't know that we're we're still gonna build any statues two sets and Bennett who's gonna be the backup at this point. But the spring game showed that he could be a viable option if they have to him and that one Mathis the true freshman from Michigan while he's probably a guy that will play four games. And then sitting redshirt he has some upside down the road to. Yeah. Well, coaches are very well aware of how important that that guy is the number two quarterback because we saw both teams in last year's national championship game win a game along the way and both went into that national title game undefeated because somewhere in the schedule the backup quarterback came in and helped them win a game where they were in serious trouble. Obviously that was yes, you see championship for Alabama. And for Clemson. It was the Syracuse game. So it's not a trivial thing who ends up being that backup. And how prepared is. He now you mentioned that you know, the playing time. The opportunity for that. I think it's one thing obviously that Georgia should have the luxury of because they're expected to be very good to dominate a lot of their opponents. So should be plenty of playing time available for whoever that second guy is right, right? And they had that at time last year with Justin fields to it. Just obviously wasn't going to be up time to keep them around. He wanted to start. And so he's going to be starting for how state this year. I think they're going to sprinkle in stats Bennett doin Mathis when they can't Stetson Bennett as one year of experience, but it was at a junior college. So they they they feel okay about the situation there. I'd say, but you you never know until you absolutely have to play. And Georgia's hoping that that does not happen in a real as in the game is still in doubt type situation. And so what questions that Georgia had entering the spring? Do they feel better about coming out of it? You know, one area. I'd say is probably the secondary. This was a situation of life without the Andre Baker. And it did not look good when they played without T. Andre Baker in the sugarbowl that might have been more the whole defense not just the secondary. They were also without the Andre walkers and be drafted later this week there. They were also without Jordan Davis, nose tackle. But the secondary this year. They're rolling out is pretty much the same one that was in that Sugar Bowl. And they looked better in the spring game. The takeaway for a lot of people when j crumbs struggled a little bit in that game UK from it a bed spring game. But you know, no one's really worried about Jake from especially in a spring game where you have rules set up. And you're you're being been they'll an offense and de'andre swift only gets a couple of carries. And then they sit in down. But what was encouraging was that for the Georgia team overall? I think is when Jake chrome was throwing the ball against the first team defense the first. Team defense did pretty well, especially when they were limited the edge guys with their rushing. So the secondary is kind of going one on one with those receivers maybe kind of two on one day from the receiver against the cornerback on a lot of these secondary held their own. So I think they felt pretty good there the other areas that. Kinda sticks out is what's the what sorts of going to do this year is it receiver, and we don't know that yet that didn't get advanced much in the spring because it was one of the few areas they had fourteen early enrolling spray, which is the incredible number, but they didn't have them at receiver. They're getting four receivers in the summer that all have a chance to be part of the rotation. Couple of five stars that could play right away and a grad transfer in there. So we don't know much about the receivers yet just Robertson did not play in the spring game because of an illness. So ball was not moved very much there. But the secondary they feel better about that talking with set them or sin from the athletic. Seth we just before you came on. We're mentioning at least FBI's take on chance to win each division. The SEC George, obviously, a heavy favourite in the east. If I were to tell you right now that Georgia does not win the east. What would? You say would be the most probable reason why. Probably that Florida in Dan Mullen second year had that year to affect you had a good first year. I think that the perception of Molen they're realistic perception of Mullen, when he got the Florida job was this is a guy who did pretty well Mississippi State when he didn't have the best talent when he gets to Florida when he has better talent. What is he going to do? And there was always that chance that he was going to be able to rise up and have. I think he did better in year one. Then a lot of people expected and you're to historically like Kirby smart had a great year two as a lot of people one of Dan Mullen, does great there. If you're asking me about what what's gonna go wrong for Georgia beyond like injuries. I would say that we talked about the secondary. I I think the defensive line is is okay, maybe not spectacular. So maybe some teams are able to do some stuff on their defensive. But it still comes back to Georgia's offense should be so good one. It's one of the best offensive lines in the country. I just think it's going to be hard for people to outscore Georgia most of the time. So I when I would look at Georgia. I would then look at the schedule and say starting particularly with that Florida game. I'm not writing off like when Notre Dame comes to Georgia and some of these other games. But starting with that Florida game you have a stretch where they've got Florida. And Kentucky's in there. But, you know, Texas AM allburn, I think actually goes Auburn, Texas in Georgia Tech. What if that really catches up to a team that's a tough stretch? They've gotta be playing their best football at that time of the year is for two it is for Georgia that they get Texas an NFL, but you've always got to go to Florida as in Jacksonville, and they've got to go to Auburn this year. And they've got to go to. So that's that's what I would look at it that November stretch and say how is door to doing that point? And are they playing their best football of the year because they're gonna need to survive that stretch. Yeah. Last thing Seth what's the level of concern. If there's any about replacing Jim Chaney Mel Tucker. You know, I when Kirby smart promoted from within for those jobs. He not only showed confidence in the two assistance less experienced assistance that he promoted for those jobs James Coley for the offense and. Dan landing. So the defense, but curry smart showed confidence in himself, and he showed confidence that he has instilled a culture here, and and create an organization as they always call it that you can do that. You don't have to bring in someone to reinvent the wheel as he said, I think a lot of people around here confident we'll see on James Coley. I talked to people that covered him, and we're part of his offenses when he was Miami's play caller from two thousand thirteen to two thousand fifteen and no one really has anything bad to say everyone says that he was he was good at his job. It would be the defenses problem or he did not have the offensive line that you will have the play with Georgia this year. And so people are expecting there's not new drop off there and defensively Dan landing and Glenn Truman was promoted to co co defensive coordinator, there unknown quantities as far as running defenses. But Kirby smartest so there. So I. Don't people round here. Don't seem to be too concerned. We will. We'll see only one way to find out. Right. You get on the field. And and see if there's much of a difference from last year, but certainly Georgia BULLDOGS based on talent should be there all the way to the very end. So Seth Emerson from the athletes. Thanks for thanks for joining us and talking Georgia with us today breath. All right. So naturally after talking Georgia now talk Florida when we come right back. We're going to talk to Matt Baker in the Tampa Bay times we will be catching up with him when we return here on the Paul finebaum show. Cried passion, then patrons re of college football lives. Here is the Paul finebaum show. Our one podcast. Halfway through the first hour so long way to go here. Bone lines are open eight five five two four to seven to eight five. That's eight five five two four two seven two eight five we will be taking your calls after we get through talking some Florida football with Matt Baker from the Tampa Bay times. Matt you were you were at the Miami spring game in Orlando over the weekend. Explain to us why Miami was playing it's spring game in Orlando. Yeah. Thanks for having me on Brad. It's interesting. They were supposed to play typically at hard rock stadium. But the Rolling Stones did a musical group. You might have heard of them. They were actually supposed to play on Saturday at hard rock stadium. But then Mick Jagger had had some health problems. So the canes were looking around and they ended up doing the same thing that Florida state did in two thousand sixteen so they took their show on the road of tour Orlando, which just coincidentally happens to be where they're playing a really big opener in a couple of months against a team from the SEC just an old didn't twenty sixteen. So now they took their show on the road in front of nine thousand stands at Camping World stadium. Wow. This oh, so math. The breaking news. Here's the Rolling Stones are still touring. I I was not aware of that. I will say I was entering college in one thousand nine hundred eighty nine and I remember that the stones. They were old then and they were having a tour called the steel wheels tour that year and that was. Thirty years ago. I'm impressed that they're still alive. But but good good for them. Hope Jagger's doing better today. Switching gears to the Florida Gators the opponent as you mentioned for Miami. And that season opener they wrapped up spring a couple of weeks ago fully bay Franks, obviously improved a good bit as the season went on last year. But still some young talented guys behind him on the depth chart. We're led to believe that that was a legitimate competition in the spring. How do we feel coming out of the spring? We were led to believe that weren't we? But from from what I saw in practice. I don't see how it competition. I mean, it's a leap Frank. And then there's a pretty big gap to Kyle, Trask and Emory Joan fleet pay. I don't know if this sort of fan base it ever gonna really trust them because of how much he struggled and mcelwain last year. And how rough you looked at times last year, certainly Georgia game in Missouri game kind of come to mind, but since the. South Carolina game where he shushed the home crowd. It's been a different player. I mean, his completion percentage has jumped eight point since then he's averaging two more yards per attempt than you did before that he's running better with more conviction. You looks a lot more confident and to me that continue throughout the spring. So don't was third highest jump in passer rating in the country last year compared to where he was the year before. So again, I'm not saying he's gonna win the Heisman or anything like that. Don't get me wrong. But he has certainly made a jump from a to at least a solid who pretty good. Maybe even good quarterback with a higher ceiling the net. So to me it's fleet they Franks and then there's a drop off between everybody else in the Gators quarterback. Or right now, I know there's a lot of optimism about Florida coming into this season. But if there's a reason to be pessimistic. What would it be what where's where's the glaring hole? It's the offense of line. I it's kinda crazy. Al Florida, Florida state Miami. I cover all three here. The Tampa Bay times. None of them come block worth a lick. Oh, three offense of lines are not very good. And it's been a years long problems. Bad problem having football, by the way. Yeah. Yeah. It is. Getting wind was was was decent enough last year. But it was one of the weaker links. I thought they lose four guys for starters from that line including John Taylor. Who's going to be a first round pick and one tackle? And then art has Ivy who's probably going to get drafted as one of the other tackles that is declaring weakness they've got some talent there. I mean became a returning starter bread. Hey, you've been highly thought of certainly has recruit, but he needs to be able to stay healthy. And and we'll see what the other guys around him can do, but there's not a lot of depth there. And there are some good players. But just not not quite enough of them yet. They're still young and growing. So to me the biggest concern I would have by far with Florida as the offense of lying, and that's something that Miami is going to be able to take advantage of immediately and week one. This is the Paul finebaum show. I'm Brad Edwards sitting in for Paul today. We're talking with Matt Baker from the Tampa Bay times talking about. The Florida Gators here. And I mentioned the optimism a lot of that has to do with Dan Mullen, and we're just talking in the previous segment with Seth Emerson. We were talking about Georgia. And I asked him if Georgia doesn't win the east this year. What's the most likely explanation for that? And he said, basically, you know, Dan Mullen working year to magic at Florida. And you know, he referenced the the improvement. They made last year. What would you say is the biggest difference that Dan Mullen has made so far in Gainesville? And coherent cohesive. Intelligent looking off. It is the biggest thing. I mean, we know what happened would Jim mcelwain and how how awful the offense looked me know, what happened certainly would we'll much have there too. But with all at the helm, they have plans, there's a good amount of Turkey. You know? I'm not a play caller. I don't pretend to be one. There's times where you can see you can kind of feel the the wheel turning with Mullen, and some of the things that they're studying, you know, doing this to set something up later on. So I I really think he's just an excellent play caller and against they things going in the right direction. And he's been able to maximize the talent that they have. I mean to me the big difference between Florida and Georgia Florida doesn't have a single five star on their roster Georgia. I think I'm ninety of them in the last class or something like that. You might wanna check my figures, but close Georgia seems like it Kirby about a huge advantage in talent over Dan the Gators right now, we'll see Florida and close the gap. You know, they did have a pretty good signing day all things considered enclosed. Well, they're still really big gap. So that the challenge for me what I see with Gators whether they can scheme around that until they can get the horses to compete with Georgia Alabama. What's the confidence level the fan base right now? I mean, you just said that they're still a talent gap. That's evidence between Florida and Georgia to the fans feel that way. Oh fans are nuts base that they just are. I think most of them are realistic that is probably the year that Florida's been overtake Georgia. If Florida can win ten games maybe eleven including a bowl or something and make that next step continued to be in the new year six conversation. Then I think Florida's fans are going to be happy for another year eventually van moan and everybody else in Gainesville knows they're going to have to beat Georgia and star competing with Bana and sort of competing for national championships on playoff appearance. I don't think year to that year. So Matt our football power index. FBI has Florida ranked as a top ten team still considered George the heavy favourite in the SEC east. But what's your take on? How good Florida could be this year is is top ten realistic. Oh, yeah. I don't see why top ten is is it's not a reach to me at all. The defense is good with a chance to be very good or excellent. Again, sleep a Franks was one of the most improved quarterback statistically in the country last year. Now, you've got another year of him working with Dan Mullen, who all seem to do is groom quarterbacks one way or another. And then we haven't talked about skill players yet. But from la- Michael p rhino running back week Davis at Tampa kit and the receiving core is one probably the best. They've had since the Tibo here to me. They better really good group of skill players. If the wine can be decent to good. They definitely have a chance to be in that top ten range. Maybe maybe hired in that even math. Thanks much of your time. And we'll we'll check in probably over the summer and see what's going on down there. Not only in Gainesville, but the rest of the sun shone, sunshine state, excuse me, easy for me. To say that you're on their they thanks for having me on. We got four more months to figure out something to talk about right? Absolutely. That's what it's all about. Matt Baker from the Tampa Bay times, we will take a quick break. And we will be back with your calls. Phone lines are open eight five five to four to seven to eight five. Give us a call here on the Paul finebaum show. Cried passion, then patrons re of college. Football leaves? Here is the Paul finebaum show. Our one podcast. I'm gonna get cold. Now. Phone lines are open by the way, eight five five two four two seven two eight five. Let's start out with Bruce in Florida. Bruce. I'm doing. Well. Thank you. I'm honored to be on the show today on the first caller. You're the first call we've taken so far today. I do feel blessed found. What I'd like to talk about today is the Florida Gators. I'm a big gator fan. And I was listening to your gifts. You just had I agree with him on everything. But the thing that he didn't bring out was Florida is loaded at receiver. I'll believe it's going to be the best receiving core. If you see and Florida's loaded at running back that's going to be too strong positions are defensive line and our offense on is definitely our weakness, but we have people on campus. And Dan Mullen has been good when he was at Mississippi State development player he can take to start very stars. And and make them look. Good for. Yeah. No, you're absolutely right. And that that's one of the reasons that, you know, people were really excited about Dan Mullen coming there. So there's no question you can get more talent to Florida than you can get to Mississippi State, and yet he had and this is this is something that I I just have to. Remind people of constantly because I think people sometimes take things like this for granted. Dan Mullen, had Mississippi State ranked number one in the nation for five weeks. Okay. That that cannot be understated now that doesn't you know in itself put him up there in the Nick Sabin category. But I think he he showed through a lot of years at Mississippi State that he's a really good head coach. And he knows what he's doing. And think you started to see some of that at Florida last year, you know, Matt just made the point Matt Baker from the Tampa Bay times last segment made the point that you can see that he has a plan offensively, which is something. You didn't often feel was the case when you're watching the teams previously under mcelwain must champ and say as as you saw Felipe a Franks improved greatly over the final month or so of the season. I think it was natural to get more optimistic about this year. You mentioned the talent at receiver and running back. And especially receiver if the quarterback can play well he can throw accurately. Those guys are going to have a chance to make a lot of plays. But once again, it it comes down to Kenny block. And I don't think that's a question against a lot of the teams on their schedule. But against the, you know, the best ones games that they have to win to make the season door as good as it can be that. That's that's what they're gonna have to overcome. Agree with you completely in Georgia is the one we have a beat lately. And that's the one that everybody has there is all as the target. But I think whatever all said and done TM twenty years down the road. Bama. There's going to be one of the top coaches just want expert here. Just like our our Florida's ever had. Well as possible, but in order to do that in order to be in that conversation. He's going to have to win a national championship. And the, you know, the the bar was that pretty high even though I would say he came in at the right time. And that he followed a couple of coaches who weren't very successful. Still, you know, Florida fans mo- most of that fan base. Not only remembers the urban Meyer years, but the Steve Spurrier years, and so there's still a pretty high standard there at Florida. And that's what that standard is winning national championships. And I don't know what I don't know that. I don't know that it was very often that those coaches had to contend with a team as good as Georgia in their own division. And so that's going to be a big challenge for Molin. Is that is that Georgia right now is that it's it's talent Pete, you know, as he's trying to build this thing at Florida. So I would expect they're going to have some some great games in years to come on as far as you know, teams that are both ranked in the top ten both of them with a bunch of future NFL players in the NFL players part. I think that's been the case for the last thirty years. I mean, Florida Georgia always have player somewhere in the field. The question is how good are they as a team? And in some ways both of them have been disappointing for for stretches during that span. But clearly Georgia is is there. Now, Georgia is is a very good team in Florida's. I didn't close to getting there. Well, I'll put my prediction and as Georgia and the carbon smart, he's a good coach all that. Great stuff. But I'm going to go into protect for Dave. He's not he can't win. The big one. We've seen that the last couple of years when it goes down crush something happens and everything crumbles, and I think that's going to be his legacy when L that we'll we'll see he's still still very young as far as coaching goes and coaching experience in. So he's got plenty more chances to to win those big games have been getting away the last couple of years. But, but you know, it's one of those that you you gotta do it before you can get up to that next level conversation. And that that's the confidence. Fighter between Lola and are. Coach well, and he's installing that confidence. Then our player and staff. Well, I think Jordan is playing with a lot of confidence too. It's just a matter of of being able to get to the very top of the mountain. And so it'll it'll be it'll be fun to watch a Bruce. Thanks for your call. Thank you. I burn she ate it. All right. Let's go to Brody. No, no, let's go to let's go to Jim in Alabama. I think I wanna take this. Call eight Jim. Hey brands, you love the show when you when you know. Thank you. Oh, you might make the roller. So still touring right? Yes. I would just hold that there. They were supposed to play last weekend and hard rock stadium. Yes. I saw them in nineteen seventy two. Wow. And tosa LUSA was Stevie Wonder is opening night, by the way. And then my wife surprised me in two thousand fifteen with tickets to go see them again for my sixtieth birthday in Nashville. Doesn't sixteen fifteen thing. I've heard sixty. They still bring it partner. They still bring you know. I'm not I'm not surprised by that. But like I said, I give them a lot of credit for still being alive and kickin because it's amazing that that lifestyle that they that they have lived for so long is not necessarily conducive to great health. I wouldn't think but they're still going. Whatever ks Richards is doing I think we all need to do it. But probably not really. Yeah. I think probably not, but yeah. No, they obviously a one of the one of the hall of famers when it comes to rock and roll in great bands. Yeah. That was that was the. Yeah. No GM that thank you for. Thank you for the call those there were there were two really surprising things that Matt said in that interview one was that the the Rolling Stones were were still touring the other one that really got my attention. What he said the Florida Gators don't have a five star player on their roster. And I I don't know if that's specific to a certain set of recruiting rankings and other several services out there and sometimes they differ on who are five stars four stars. But that one really caught my attention, and I can kind of underscored the point that he proceeded to make from there, which was that there's a as a decent talent gap right now between Georgia and Florida, and we don't often think of it that way, we know Georgia has a ton of talent because of the way they've recruited under Kirby. But it just a little bit of insight as to how Florida has dropped off. Now, Florida still a pretty talented team. But not having any five stars, especially when you look around. And even in the conference, and you see, you know, how many that Georgia has how many Alabama has just shows you that there's plenty of room to grow there for for Dan Mullen in Gainesville and a lot of people are very optimistic about the Gators as as we've discussed here in in recent minutes, so we will get back very soon with more of your calls. Phone lines are open eight five five to four to seven to eight five as we finish up here hour one of the Paul finebaum show.

And believe me, they're nowhere near back being what they used to be as far as fan support band era this and so forth there still look it up amount of the rock. I don't care what they say. Based on last year the way they got thrashed by Missouri. And the way they lost to Kentucky. They may be hoping. But they're just not back. Why do you think they suddenly feel like the calendar is nineteen ninety six all over again? Well. Oh, I think a lot of it is Mullen. I mean, the the best out so and you're showing a long time was that that coach Mullen has Steve Spurrier's math, and we'll must champs trophy case. And so we've seen the mouth, and that's got a few of them riled up. But we haven't seen anything in a trophy case yet until we do they just need to pipe down a little bit and going back to be in the same Gators. They've been for the last four or five years. Thank you very much. Great to have you on Ray is in Florida. And you're next gerrad Ray. Yeah. Paul thing for me on. Thank you. I want to talk a little bit about the last caller and the close of into Ford in the Florida Gators like you said they're not back yet. I think a lot of people are delusional in the sense that they don't recognize the problems that Florida has and I'm Florida fan up in line last year, couldn't stop the run all and but they're everything else on their defense is pretty good. But I don't think three French is going to be the guy that takes them all the way where you think. Listen, I don't think he is a great quarterback. I think he's serviceable, and I do think it's all about Dan Mullen. I think he has a certain degree of era. This cockiness take your pick. What word you would like to insert? And I think he's he's done a really good job of firing up to forces. And when you win when you win the last game of the year in a major bowl, and you beat so power. It's going to make you feel really good. I agree with that the other thing I wanted to talk about valid in now. I started watching the show longtime. It was out of callers, we all ban, you know, a couple here. Now almost seven ten right now. No, Nick Sabin all last year was quite complacency in every year before that team because it's gonna get complacent Macedo. Last year was fighting the fans base in the school. Which is kind of you know, scary to me because I think last year they'd had Jalen Hurd starting. I think they want it all you and they play Georgia, and they put Jalen hurt in. And he they thought oh our albums back cower running and all that. And he threw the ball trick them or else. I think it's words you would have been the national champions where you think that? Yeah. I think you're right, right. Thank you for the call really good to hear from a Assane. Florida fan frito is up next in Florida frito. Paul. Hey, but we're doing great. Thank you. I just wanted to call and I wanted to mounts that I'm officially quitting Michaud as. You're you're the you're the first of the day beat what what? The rush. Yes. At avoided prison, fresh gyms. Country club. Gator Makita fan, and I just wanna say some decent things about Georgia. I mean, I hate losing to. But they've got something that we want. We just want to get better. And they're killing it right now there, I you know, I have no ill will guest except. I'd like to beat them once in a while. But I. I just I I wanna be what they have right now. And they're they're killing. Well, listen, I think. Florida's on the way back and Mullen. Has something to prove though. I think I think everyone just assumes that Dan Mullen is is urban Meyer two point. Oh needs to pause for just a moment. No. Yeah. They're they're on the upswing. I I'll give them that. And I just wanted to continue. We can't lose the Missouri. We can't lose the Kentucky. No. And that that just that just takes away the less, but I wanna wish the Georgia fans. Good luck this year and every every game they play except for when they play us that that's it. And I think that's it in that shell Paul. Thank you frito. Great to hear from you. Neal is up next in New York Ellendale. Hey, you Paul on talk to you. So I just wanted to give a major piece of contact to the fourteen thousand mean that went long yesterday made the rounds on Twitter throughout Instagram and Facebook, and I think the main thing that missing is. I don't think anyone who tweeted that out or as a part of that ever really claimed that Florida was Alabama has no insane. Florida's the best team in the nation. But the point is more to prove that Georgia isn't really in a position to be talking any kind of smacks either. And they are so yeah, I know they won the last two games. They're still they winning percentage against Florida over the last three decades. That's barely even good for batting though. The fact that they're talking smack. Maybe that's not just good idea. Either, you know, so we just wanted to Manila, let's let's be realistic here. And I have friends who are inside that program that are saying hold on a second some of the Mike Griffin's or griffis or the world or our way out on the precipice. But. Georgia has still accomplished a great deal in the last two seasons. They become an elite program they've won a title. They nearly one a national championship there. They're recruiting at a level that Georgia has not recruited at and memory. So I'm not I'm not sure how you can can can can do an apples for apples comparison right now between Florida and Georgia. But but I'm not trying to the point is that some Ardo. Well, I mean Neil calling up not not you, but others up and making fun of the fact Georgia hasn't won. And listen, this is coming from Dan Mullen. I'm not blaming some guy on Instagram. I mean, this is this is Dan Mullen started this. Okay. I know it I can attest to it. But that's not one who who is who has changed the culture down there from the the crazy uncle in the attic, which was Jim mcelwain. Two swashbuckler, Steve Spurrier, look alike. And and it's good. But you jump point you do have to back it up and last year there were some great moments LSU Michigan. But there were some just terrible moments as well. Of course, were but the larger point is that yes, it was thirty seventeen. But Florida was down. Brad, Stuart they were down market. I don't care about all that. I really don't Neil from the year before it was like forty four to seven. Listen. Don't don't don't compare yourself to Georgia until you beat Georgia Coppee she found. Yes. Listen, paul. I'm trying to plain know, what's your to do make yourself a yield better by denigrating Georgia. That's not really the way it works in this. Let me Georgia's already there Florida is trying to get there. They may be there and some preseason rankings, but they need to back it up. Do I think they can sure. But that's on the field. But we're talking about here is hot air. We are coming right back. More to come and your phone calls listening to Paul finebaum show podcast, Jake charters joining us and Jake. Let's let's talk about these fella ratings and first of all how do you? How do how do we come up with this stuff? Well, I enjoyed listening to the Florida fans call on your show while I was waiting to come on. That was good. Good stuff. There. The way we do. It is is everybody puts in their ballot. And the average it out and I actually had the same top six as the top twenty five. I think there's a clear divide between those top sixteen top sixteen. And then everybody else, I think like seven to thirteen seven fourteen you can make a case for a lot of different teams. I actually had your longhorns Paul at number seven. Woo. So Jake, what's talk about some of the interesting. Numbers Florida eight I think most of the other ones we can we can understand. And I'm not saying Florida isn't a good team. But how do you think we come up with this eight number that is really high? For me. I had Florida. I believe it ten and even then I felt and I don't know it seems a little high for me even there but gave him the benefit of the delve given what they accomplished last season. But I think I think LSU Florida. The Mississippi State ranking is kind of confusing to me given what they lost defensively and how much they struggled on the offensive side last season. So I think the SEC really when you talk about those three teams Texas ADM's kind of recoil preseason option. You have Auburn has been so up and down under Gus malzahn. I think the SEC when you look at these rankings it's kind of interesting conference because the rains for some of these teams. I mean, I can make a case for Florida all the way up to maybe seven. And then if you didn't wanna put Florida on your top fifteen I think that K two. Talking to Jae Crowder about the rankings. Again, it is may third these things can change and they will change Jacob as we look at the top. I mean, it's I mean, I know I know I know it's been Alabama in clips and the last two years. But I mean, there doesn't seem to it seems like they're getting even farther ahead of the rest of the pack. Does not. Yeah. There's a clear gab between two and three. I mean, Clemson Alabama and then to some degree. It's everybody else. Georgia Georgia three Oklahoma. Jalen hurts for I think really in Ohio State. I put in that tier two. You could really bring these rankings in tears, and there's there's a tear at the top two teams, and nobody else even as a case for that tier? And then I think you have the Georgia yet the Oklahoma the state, maybe Notre Dame. And then I think it seven to like twelve you have another tier and you go from there. But I mean, the the easiest. The easiest part of this ranking is one in two. I mean, it's Clemson it's Alabama. And then you worry about the rest, but I can't imagine. There was anybody who filled out a ballot didn't have Clemson one in Alabama two in that order, and quite frankly is there any real way, and doesn't doesn't doesn't matter. No. But is there any real way to differentiate the two right now other than what we saw in in early January. Yeah. That's all you have to go off. And I don't think you can project out Trevor Lawrence a little bit. You would think. Okay. Didn't play his entire first season. Got better was awesome in the playoff. You would think that with what they have coming back around him that he'll be even better. Don't always work out that way. But I think if you were projecting out what Trevor Lawrence could be this season other than going off the national championship game. That's how I can figure that rank. And this time of year, you mentioned it's may third what I'm trying to do power rankings or preseason polls. I look at two things primarily who's the quarterback. And what is the schedule, and I took schedule out of the equation for this particular ballot. But when it's close I always defer to who has the better quarterback. And that's why I like Texas in Oregon so much as I feel much better about what they have a quarterback than some of the teams who I had a little bit lower. Okay. Let me stop. You. Just brought up an interesting parallel here. We have Texas in Oregon Oregon plays Auburn plays LSU. First Auburn, we don't they don't have a quarterback. Mel John is narrowed the field from twenty four to two and they're both freshman, and they both look like can't miss, but. We're talking playing Oregon who has won two or the number one two or three best quarterback in the country coming back. Yeah. Yeah. Yes. NFL draft prospect top ten guy at least going into the season. I think it's a huge game for the Pac twelve I mean the Pac twelve desperately needs a marquee victory. I mean, you have to really go a long way back to find the last time that they'd be. And I don't even know that Auburn is necessarily that that, you know, it's not ala. Bama, it's not Georgia. But still that would be a nice win for the Pac twelve they had an opportunity last year in the opener fell short with Washington. So I think there's a huge game for for or the Pac twelve is a whole in terms of playoff reputation and right now I like Oregon just because I know what they have at quarterback. And you mentioned it's a older wild card. See what is going to have their replacing Jarrett's, and everyone loves Elvis you. I have not heard LSU fans this fired up in a long time last year. They didn't know what to make out of it. Got a good quarterback. But they take on Texas, which beatdown Georgia as you as you look at that game, many, many months of way, what do you see? Vegas right now has LSU as a favourite in Austin. And that that's me is the prize in line. I think I saw like three point favorite. I thought I would have thought Texas would have been favored given what favor given what they have coming back. What they showed in the George. Maybe wasn't motivated whatever I thought Texas was impressive in that game. And again, it's quarterback. I think Sam L anger is at top seven top eight quarterback in college football was one of only six quarterbacks in history of the FBI our five quarterbacks to I can't remember exactly what the number was. But it had a certain number of passing touchdowns rushing touchdowns divide and the other five guys one is been trophies. So I don't know that he's like a Heisman Trophy favorite. But if you were going to put him in that second tier after two Trevor Lawrence, I I wouldn't disagree with that. So in Austin Tom Herman's third season. Sam elegant quarterback. They have a lot of momentum. A lot of young talent. Because they've recruited so well, I like Texas in that game in you know, we're talking about the Pac twelve against Auburn. This is a huge game for the big twelve and this is their marquee non conference game this year. Oklahoma really doesn't play anybody that UCLA in Houston, Texas is an opportunity when the playoff committee is going to convene a November. They're gonna come back and look at this game. And look at who won. And if LSU wins this game that is going to be really bad, not just for Texas. But for the entire big twelve in terms of getting team in the playoff, Jake. We always ask you about Jalen hurts in Oklahoma. Because you spent a lot of time around their program seems like a lot of confidence coming out of spring. What did you learn? And what do you see happening as we get ready for the season? One play that sort of underscored the spring game. He scores a rushing touchdown. I think it was his last play of the spring game couple of weeks ago, and he gets the offense together to pose for a picture in the end zone, right then and there to which he said he would have never done it ala Bama with Nick Sabin that would've gone over very well. But it looks like he's really out on a lot of fun. The team has taken him to me just based on my outside observation he's the undisputed leader of that team right now, which is really interesting considering he's only been on campus three or four months now he looked terrific in the spring game. And he didn't really get a chance to run the ball much because of the no contact jersey. So there is a ton of optimism at Oklahoma about Jalen hurts and that offense CD ever Seaver and potentially the Sooners taken a step Ford defensively without scrunch here from Ohio State as the coordinator gross stuff. From Jake Trotter Jake comeback soon. We always appreciate it. Thanks, Paul Jake. Charter joining us, we'll get back to your calls. Eight five five two four to seven to eight five a lot to do on a Friday afternoon. You're listening to Paul finebaum show podcasts. Chris up next in Oklahoma. Just because we're talking a lot about Oklahoma. Chris nice of you to join us. Thank you. Good afternoon. Good afternoon. So you Paul. Hey, I was calling you. And I just wanted to preface my call with with just a little bit. I've got to get them off but shit. So I listen to you leading up to the college football playoffs bash. Mice owners, you gave us no chance to get Alabama. And I get it. I get it that first half is pretty lacklustre. But we came out there to second hand. But I guess right now what I'm trying to figure out is going to this season. Here's that Paulo. We have the quarterback we have Jalen hurts as you just heard Mr. Trotta was speaking glowingly about him. We have the office of blue ruin coach while we have an amazing receiving core. And now we have the missing piece I believe that we have the defense. I left that spring game. Somewhat more impressed with the defense, and I did the office. So I guess Paul. My question for you is just your. You're at Tennessee, man. But at our fans, but what is it gonna take to get you on your bed? It's gonna take it's gonna take a lot. Chris. Yeah. I'm a fan. But I I have to see it to believe it. I mean, listen, I'll I'll take your word for the defense. Let me see it first. Okay. All right. I got nice to call. Charles is in Louisiana. Did we tried a few minutes ago? Yeah. That's me. Charles. What happened you? I couldn't hear the TV. And all oh, okay. I'm glad you're back. Charles. Yeah. What what about LSU? Yeah. What about what you what you think about? I think that could be Texas. I heard y'all talking about them. Listen, I'm high on LSU. They're they're they're my favorite team right now. I mean, that's just I mean. Coach. Oh. But, but I I like to turn, you know, picked up some pretty good players and stuff, you know. That's like that, you know. But I just I looked to have a good season. I'm thinking we've got to get over that help with Alabama. Hey, how are you going to do that? How are we going to do that? Yeah. Yeah. Clemson could do it. I think you can do it. Got to play some good defense. That's how you beat. You know, you know, how you beat Alabama. Yep. Place mar football. First of all, I don't know about that. The first thing to do is you have to try to win the game. And you really think at ores you're on tried to win the game last year. No. So so that that's all it takes. All I'm saying to coach. Oh, hey, just just go for the haymaker on the opening play the game. Don't don't don't play play cute. Alabama will kill you. If you do that. And I thought that's been his I mean, he's he's got a really good team there. They will be better next year. And right, even though the game exclusive, I give them a much better shot this year than I did last year. Right, right. But I see that recruiting class. Listen. But you know, we act like LSU is always recruited poorly. I mean, this is a big time program here, you know, that you're a fan. I think what he is. He's finally gotten LSU back to where it was before before restaurant. Ran it off the road. Yeah. Right. But we'll see, you know. Okay. And play it out and see what have. Okay, appreciate you call. They may call and that was the first time call in the second time, we call back but pre sheet. You did great first timer. Now. It's always tough the first time. Chris up next in Georgia. Hello Chris able how you doing? We are great Chris. Thank you for the call for some caller, all so wonderful, man. We're. Yeah. I just wanted to on something that you brought up a few minutes ago about Molin being nine against Georgia. Well, actually, it's Kirby. But and John said that wasn't fair, but it is fair. I mean, well, by the way, it's fair in this context. It's offense of coach versus defensive coach. And I realized that Kirby was only responsible for so much. But it doesn't matter what the record is. But but it's just a a measuring stick. And by the way to say that Mississippi State is not in the same league as Alabama. That's not really accurate either. I mean, Dan Mullen had that program going there were number one in the country. They had deck Prescott when they played Alabama in two thousand and fourteen you know, who the higher ranked team was it was Mississippi State. Yeah. Well, you know, we know I mean defense wins championships. I mean, I display that I mean, I think that's what wins ball games. And I think you see that. I mean, you know, you. Yeah. You gotta have a balance program. But ultimately, if you don't have a good defense, you're not going either at the end, so no. And I listen, I think. I mean, Kirby smart took over a good program. The and made it significantly better. Dan took over an average program. But Florida wasn't in the in the in the tank, and in fact, I think I think Florida had a diesel pretty decent defense. They just were lacking. I just had a coach who I to this day. I don't know what happened to Jim mcelwain. I mean, he just I think the job was just too big for him. Yeah. Well, I I don't know. I just kind of find it funny, though, the Molins run as mouth now. I mean, I I mean, obviously, I'm a dog fan. But. He is running his mouth, I can confirm that. And that's who he is. He's a very confident coach he's got us Wagner and he's brought this wag back to Gainesville. But. You better do more than just talk. Exactly. I mean, he's he's trying to get in the head of all the Georgia fans. And and Kirby he won't and all these dune is providing bulletin board. Here if you if you go into Kirby's inner sanctum right Now, Dan Mullins not the team that he's thinking about beating. You're right. He's got to figure out how to beat Alabama. And I mean, I think the two programs are different levels. I'm not saying Florida can't close the gap. But right now, I mean, I don't look at for those of you who wanna live on what the ESPN ranking show today careful because Georgia has only got a couple of commitments their ranking. We'll go up they know what they're doing over. There surely do Mullins just a a little dog nip and on Georgia's heels right now right now, the two big dogs are Alabama Georgia that you're absolutely correct. Hey, thanks for the call. Great to have you. This is cool. This joy. I mean, I'm I'm somewhat relieved to hear to fan bases going at it. Other than Alabama fans going after me Swamy is up next. How are Swami? Hey, great. Oh. Has major breaking news today. Paul with last night, the fifth overall pick in the Canadian football lead to Winnipeg blue bombers select Jonathan combo defensive in Tennessee. So they're officially off plop now Paul I mean, it was beautiful at work today. He's Tennessee fans and my friends of mine just had their chest puffed out. You know, you gotta take what you can't listen, Tennessee. This is not your grandfather. Or your father's Tennessee football program. It's absolutely. The the success stories are slightly smaller than they used to be and one last thing. Which I called out for, you know, come for second Hyun, you're casting now damaged boy, I'm tell you suck and up on a man, then takes cow. I'm gonna call you for calling Neo. We'll take a break. Which Friday afternoon in case you couldn't figure that out. We are having fun. It's comes once a week. And you only get those spring Fridays for a couple of weeks, and they take us off the air listening to Paul finebaum show podcast. I can't believe it. That Philip brought his little brother on our mission into orbit. How long until it got their long get there. I'll learn to get there. No. I can't believe how easy it was to save hundreds of dollars on my car insurance with gyco. What's this button? Do what's this button, do but this button, do what's this? I believe at Geico could save you fifteen percent or more on car insurance. We'll go back. Greg is up next. Hey, greg. Hey, Paul, thanks for taking my call. Thank you know of a heard early sense people calling in cancelling or not wanting listen anymore. And I just wanted you to know that I have renewed my Paul scripture for the come and see. Okay, we needed it. We were close to an answering. So you gotta call this. Rodney Dangerfield Friday. Because lately, this seems a lot of teams are fans calling up saying, we're not getting any respect, you know. It reminds me of that time when Missouri had come off three SEC championships. And this guy called you said, hey, we're not getting any respect, and you pointed out that they were getting plastered every time. It got much like Florida few years ago when they went three years in a row, it's it's one thing to get there. But you gotta do something. Once you get there. So I think. Greg. I think and I've been part of a lotta rivalries, and you have to when you're number one calling card is negative energy directed at your your rival not having won something in a long period of time. That's not going to get it done, especially when they beaten you two straight years. Exactly. So you know, when ole miss beat Alabama two years in a row that's something to talk about. And Florida doesn't yet. So the only way that you garner. Good positive claiming accreditation is by taking your talent and achieving at a higher level than you did in the Florida is one of those schools in. I think we had a discussion in the SEC they in terms of their their their self worth. And what they believe in what they think they're worth their on. I think if you had to rank that if you're if you're if you had dented fans and say, okay, who are you in the SEC Florida fans feel like they are on the on the same shelf as Alabama. Just going to say Paul I agree that when they call in. It's almost as if they only feel like they're one or two years removed from urban Meyer suback toback now in fairness I've done chosen album time, even when Alabama was in the wilderness. They still felt like they belong because they used to talk about the past. Now, they talk about the future because the president they're trying to nor. But well point is Alabama fans even in the worst of times, Greg. Would would they never felt they were that their stock had dropped. They would they would throw up how many ever ever many national championships? And they would talk about what they were going to do in the future. And the Gators are similar to that. I mean, even even during some pretty dark years they and maybe because I was there two weeks ago, and I saw the trophies sitting and Dan Mullins office. It reminded me of of their recent past. I mean, the the Gators are not shying on confidence. And that's the one thing about Georgia that they have to overcome at some point naming naming the field after Vince Dooley is great. It will not bring you a national championship though. So all these preseason. Polls are nice all the talk about you know, everybody's talking right now that there's a, you know in the top ten and that their defense is going to be better. And they're going to win ten games. Never wanted. Third act is everybody can't win. And I I'm hearing. I'm hearing LSU fans talk about recruiting all of a sudden, I mean, listen is may and you better find anything you can to wrap your arms around because the reality is for months from now the real stuff starts, well and all I could say for LSU fan. Florida press conference at the end when they didn't score any points against Alabama last year. Yeah. I mean that that when you said just a few minutes ago as overture on didn't play to win because he doesn't know how to win against Alabama. Now, he's better by new book. The book us last year did not help. Hey, thanks, Greg. Great always great to hear from you. Let's continue. Kenny is in West Virginia. Go right ahead. Kenny. Hey, how you doing great? Thank you. You know, I went to Florida when we had Galen hall. So I I actually have seen some good times. And I've seen some bad times too. And I'm still here. I've seen more bad times. The, you know, lately, obviously, you know, some of the good times I've seen three national title since ninety six like like you mentioned which is more than any school tipped Alabama. You know, and I do know. And I, you know, I'm I'm I'm a realist, I do admit we've been looking up at Georgia the past two years, but you know, Mike there said, oh, they had a a trophy trophy case. And we need to get some ignoring the facts won't change facts. We have national titles trophies not SEC championships. And in light of how you ended against Texas and what we did to the number one defense in the country in our last game. I wouldn't be beating my chest. Period. Go Gators go Gators. Go Gators Bill is Intel ahead. Hey, bill. Hey, how you doing? Well, thank you. All right. Can you? Grant me one wish we spoke in a couple of times. And I'm an old cater. I have a handle. I've used on sports talk radio for decades and the internet these days, I'm known as Terminator can use. That term Agadir is on the air. Go right ahead. Thank you, sir. You know, four to fan base Georgia fan basis or two huge fan bases and both of them have their fringes. So I just enjoy sitting back and watching this listen to this the smack I'll go back and forth of but as far as the head to head things Mullen, Kirby smart, can we just count hit the head when their head coaches. Do we have? That's what we should do. But I I was just trying to to make a show a comparison because many gator fans wanted just totally dismiss Kirby's career. And I don't think you can do that. No. I don't think we should dismiss either career. They're both fine. Careers. And is far as you. You tend to say when it comes to arrive room when the gazing play, Georgia, Florida. It's Florida Georgia is Appleby e f g oh, okay. I went to. I went to grammar school in in Tennessee. Well, at least you have all your teeth. I think the Batabano right now, I've got something going on in my mouth. All right. Paul great to talk to you. Sports for fun not for animals to the okay term gator. I like that. Thank you, sir. Have a great day. Thank you very much. Okay. We we made it to the halfway point of the Friday afternoon show. Yeah. We're all here. We just need to figure out a way to make it the next couple of hours, you we'll take your calls that already had some really good guests amazingly good conversation too. And we are coming right back.

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.

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. Certainly is you know, had a lot to do with it. Kirby brought him in from Arkansas. And he's really been building this thing recruiting class by recruiting class with a lot of homegrown talent. And then snagging some top prospects from all over the the region than as even up in the northeast. So they're big they're talented, and they are people movers. Which is what you need the SEC. Yeah. I'm I'm interested in terms of the blueprint for this. I mean, you mentioned you know, he brought him in. But what? Was it was there a specific goal in mind or did they kind of work their way through it to building on top of previous success? Now, remember when Kirby was hired. He's still working for Alabama obviously in the playoffs there. But he said right after his introductory news conference that that he wanted, you know, the offense of line both sides of the line of scrimmage for that matter to get bigger. And that's what he saw. He went up against Georgia in two thousand fifteen you know, in a blowout game and Sanford stadium and realize that that was an area that that they were deficient, and certainly it's had a big impact on recruiting. We saw the player from Alabama year and a half ago. Make the call to leave Alabama to go play for Sam Pittman others have done that. We've had we've had some of your colleagues here recently talking about that offense of line. We had one of them say that you could go seventy seven deep and nobody in the entire country could compete with Auber with excuse me. Georgia's offensive line expound on that a little bit because that's certainly sets up for what we're Georgia fans have been looking at hoping for for a very long time. Yeah. That's probably seriously. I mean on G day they threw out with the first team offense, align an average of six five and three hundred and thirty two pounds. And that's without starting to five stars came as Jamal resell. Your there were on the second-string line. So and that second line one six five three eighteen cities penalty guys, and they're mammoth, and you know, it's it's total changed from what they had when when they came in here, Margaret, let's give me on the offensive line because you need more than that to win. We know about from. We know some of the losses that Georgia has encountered. We watched the draft, of course, break this down for us. What's it look like especially beyond the offensive line offensively? Then we'll move over the other side of the ball. Yeah. I mean, you mentioned that the draft. They had three guys drafted at wide receiver and two of them were only entering Riley really with one of went on day three and Terry Godwin. It was a senior that that also went as well in the seventh round. So they're they're they weren't necessarily anticipated that equal Hartman was the second round. So that's a lot of talent. But recruited, well, they bring in five star. She George chickens from Hoover, Alabama, Brandon Dominique Blaylock four star kid from in-state. So these are guys that they're counting on their needing to come in and be able to to complement guys like JJ Hollmann Beatrice Robertson, and then you know, running back you lose lodge hula field who was thousand yard rusher. And you kind of waiting on Samir white the five star running back to you know, finish mending and rehabbing from his second ACL tear to see what in what he can bring this year. What about swift? Yeah. I mean, he's going to be the guy in terms of you know, he's not going to be a complimentary. One two punch guy. They're gonna need him to increase his carries. And you know, they've done well with with Chubb and Michelle chair in the low. Do they have another guy that can share the load was swift? We'll see Brian hearings more guy that you get out in space. But you know, that's why that they'll be waiting on Samir to see what he can bring you know, Switzerland and a little bit questionable in terms of durability had some injuries last offseason. So we don't need to, you know, be strong in that regard, Mark. How would you compare this this year Georgia team? I realized we haven't seen them play you, but versus the last two one that won the SEC in nearly won the national championship and the other one that came within a whisker of getting back to the fourteen playoff. Well, the deaf from you know, bringing in the number one rated recruiting class to couldn't cycles ago. And the number two this year should be better across the board. You know, whether they can withstand the four defections in terms of early entries in the NFL. Traff remains to be seen. I think that defense alliance still question. They've upgraded what they have at outside. Linebacker in terms of law talent brought in the number one outside linebacker for Lyon g academy Nolan Smith born the number one junior college outside linebacker in Jimmy Johnson. They're hoping those guys can create more havoc on the edge and put pressure on the quarterback, you know, in fronts backup is a question, obviously without just fields here, but Stetson invented and do on that this had nice springs, and they probably feel a little bit better behind from them. They did for Mark Weiser. Thank you for joining us, Mark. We'll talk to you very soon. Could you listening to the Paul finebaum show podcast? I man is up next. I man had good intent yesterday you called some people out. I'm yeah. Following me reiterate on that to also Australian richest name was mentioned rich is a great guy. You know that to be true under what the beach. We this this throw situation up rich owns dog. Can he owns stock in? And you know, what he has nothing, but a building full Matz, that's all of us call 'cause rich knows a lot. Dana purebred in the damp of childcare how much thank you self. You're all damn Matz and rich took Ginny feds in he washed, y'all be a three baths, the dipped you in and gave you a winner sweat. And and all of these cars have meant so much to a lot of your listeners. We've heard that we've heard listeners call in and say a lot of really push things back and some days these callers, get get your pain is in the what they have in the bad day, then they call in and dump on you and everybody else in the world. Well, and you just kind of blindsided, but you've been doing this long term and you roll with the punch within tomorrow, you may be a little frisky. And they've all come down Neta get the feeling, sir. And they kind of forgot why they were even involved in this show. And some of the problem is all these people started talking to one and it took the edge off. And that's why I've kept my distance from a lot of these people, and and not quite a few of them. I appreciate your I made you may I made a good point. I mean this program is not a Facebook page. It's it's knowing and I think, you know, you get you somebody called yesterday. I'm not gonna call the personnel. And. And you know, this person's Levin on everybody in the world. But, you know, you're not told Mark and John this earlier when when things have gotten really tough on this program, and we've had to go places, you're. I I've seen Greg a number of things he's a little bit newer to the show than than you are. But I've seen you at every important moment at this shows history, even a great lanes. And you know, these these Facebook callers are great, but they don't really have the same residents. If someone like you I man who has put not his money, but has put his his reputation whereas mouth is well, and, you know, up found that when you meet these people it takes the edge off, and you just can't call Phyllis Ukraine. You have you know, I mean because she has really sweet person. But she is really a crazy. Oh, hey, who's on who's fat Phyllis? Yeah. She is. And and you know, and that's where the banner comes from me. She she was born. She was one of the first ones that went. And I I don't mean to be critical. But we're we're talking honestly today early. He was one of the first people that went from a legendary hall of fame finebaum caller to the first thing. She would do when she called up. She would thank all our Facebook friends. And and that's and begin to get off course at least we've seen her before we'd met her think about the people that call in here all the time. That are part of the finebaum family that you have never laid your eyes on. I mean, we know one. Okay. Nobody nobody's ever seen him. Except never go. See him. Doctors accepted, the the Alabama diem DMV, and we we've all seen the driver's license. We've seen that. But there's some other people too. And I'm not calling anybody out. But I mean, listen, we we know who's real and who's not real here. Ok well purposely didn't use the word fake. Right. You know? I think all these people talking in becoming friends they've lost their edge. And you know what? That's okay, that's great to go out and meet new prince, but please don't call in here and complain about how you are disrespecting collars, when the callers have always disrespected you as well. And it was that great banter that put all these people's names out there. I hear people people ask me, I'll turn let he take you. You know, what I've never asked you for anything. But I tell you what you have to you have given me a format that if I'm creative enough I can go out and do something with that. That's up on me. That's not you. But now you. You are smart, man. You might want to look over chairman because I know you got an agent somewhere said, my we'll talk that that guy. You know, he's good stuff. But but I'm not I'm not saying anything, I'm not baking votes. But but but that's what it is. That's why I have refused to be a part of this family family thing because you can't come on here. And and and and comment on somebody's ridiculous comments because it hurts their favorites. And I don't want to be a part of hurting anybody savings, but at the same time, please give me room to not give them as always Paul wore damage go, and I'm gonna call you every day the rest of your neck. As I can have a good well done. I man I am bringing some heat early in the show, and we need. You're listening to the Paul finebaum show podcast. Joanie is up next. What do you got Joanie? How are you? I'm fine. How are you? I mean, it's it's like, you know, the the guy knocked on the door and said you just won the lottery. Well, now, you know at funny guy called and I got the first time I'll play and then I accidentally hung up and I got through again. It was kind of karma think mitt today. Gator fan lives in Tallahassee and I was listening yesterday. And look I have fifty nine years old to my disobey. And this is my first radio with football. My parents were huge Florida fan. And I it's kinda don't say don't kick asleep lettuce sleeping dog lie. I'm watching this minutia. I watch thought the last year where they would prove. Absolutely. But. They get to go forward. I I don't know. I I was listening to the Dan Mullen, being I think a lot of these people are maybe new Florida fan. I'm not sure ten clause. When I was fixtures old brought me number eleven jersey that whole that whole. Yeah. I think which happened Joan is the their arrival Mullen, which is really good news has convinced some people that it's there's nothing left to do. I mean, I it's we're back to Spurrier and urban Meyer wrapped into one. Well, maybe well but hasn't happened yet. But how will take to get furrier and urban Meyer? I mean, my my. Yeah, you're right. Wait till next year. Wait till neck, Florida one in SEC in the eighties under Charlie Pell. You know, what happened? They took it away from them. Exactly. Yeah. We've all thirty four years old when we weren't a machine. Yeah. True. Undescended legitimate one. Yes, did Bill legitimate one exactly. Say ever fails that there's always illegitimate Len when it comes to a forward in Florida put all we just outright win one without some controversy. Look, I was here from Kentucky this last year. First of all Keita's Kentucky, the nicest fans it went about time. Everybody kept even about that game and therefore disappointed that they had it. They gave Kentucky the credit Kentucky served winning that game. Thank god. That whole will be after they were with. I don't know. I just listen to people, and I just laugh, I mean, I've seen these games. I mean it on any given day. Just nobody expected Alabama this last year to get you know, what beat out of them. I mean on any given day. Now, you're well people, you know, but I did want to say, I I I would fit really well into the crazy. I can be the crazy cousin for the pun bump Bailey, y'all could spit on poor. I could hang out with the guy. I I think you have to say you have a sense of humor. You would you would fit in. Well, hope you'll become part of our dysfunctional family. Pleasure to talk to you deflect yet. I just. Like, I say, it's not musters radio who thank you, very very much. Hope you'll call back. Really great to have you mad is up next to gator, Matt. So that tells you all you need to know all how are we are? Great gator Matt call into crafts assist conversation apologizing pre yesterday. I happen to go back and listen to it. And I came across as being probably the way that I didn't want to come across. And that's a little bit arrogant and cocky, and that wasn't in the point. I was just a little frustrated because you with your platform, and I'm sure you understand in its can sometimes can you can control the narrative and the way that it just seemed like the conversation has been going over last month or two it's very, you know, pro Georgia, and you know, it gets a little frustrating sometimes because I don't think that Florida gets the credit or the respect that they deserve. Now grant, you know, Georgia's done. Pretty well. But I also think that they'd gotten probably way too much more than what they probably deserve because you know, Ford and went to Atlanta two years in a row and didn't get near the credit that Georgia's gotten now I did throw it that smokescreen about the about the recruiting which was unfair. But you know, you're from Alabama. And you're you're pretty familiar with team the whole bag man thing with Auburn. And you know, and it's just a lot of times there's smoke people tend to question things, and I think that was probably a little bit uncalled-for. But it is a little curious how Georgia and suddenly just turn on the light switch after being pretty much irrelevant for a long time. And you know, but listen, I appreciate everything that you do that last caller really she signifies what most floor panther like really friendly people, and we just like to have fun. On in with that being said to all match, your fans friends, rather I want to wish all of you it happy fourteen thousand days later, Paul. Okay. So for the record. I let him talk. There was so much to chew on there. The. I wanted to let him finish the call. Because yesterday, I was hyped up on some some some bad weed, and I just wasn't in the mood but today have calmed down. So what do we hear there? I usually don't do this. But since I I didn't speak. I'm going to do it for you. What did what did we hear their Georgia is winning in recruiting right now because they're cheating? That what you heard? We went to Atlanta two years in a row, we didn't get nearly as much credit as Georgia differ going two years in a row. Well, they went to Atlanta tears, run loss by about one hundred points. Georgia's gone two years in a row and won one game in Los the other one in epic nailbiter. In the process won the SEC, and then nearly one the the national championship. So that's what I would have said. But I didn't want to retain at Matt had written a call out yesterday. And I didn't want to rain on his parade today because he did call back, and he was much nicer about it. He'd want to ruffle feathers, or, you know, make accusations about Georgia and how they got to where they were are so fast squirrel is up next. No concern about him caring about the Florida Gators. Good afternoon, squirrel to cure, Liz. But bad. We'd I didn't think there was such thing as badly. There is well. Randy rainy, gave me some some. I mean, he gave me some weed from Woodstock. By the time by the time. I got to Woodstock I was I was sick. But I know yesterday's show was probably one of the greatest shows in a long time and started off smoking hot, Jim and Matt doing added net vilified, and then it hit it with the U N G M going at it. I mean Howard gong and people I wanted to call in on a Scott was intimidated, and you guys were you guys had standard yesterday Hammy, then we had women women call in that said, she was not quit the show. I mean there were so many. I think you know, the lady, by the way. You know, what I think about people who have to think they're so important that they have to announce that they're quitting the show. Yeah. And things of that nature. I mean, that's one thing you can say all that. I have always tried to appreciate this show. I've always tried to appreciate you giving me a voice of always appreciate the fact that you answer and let me on the air. And that we have a someone who will lead us ran rave, do whatever we want to because nobody else let us do this. And all these people that get on Twitter and bitch about this show. I told them one day when this show in and it's gonna end one day. They're not going to last snow. It's it's close to the end. Based on the rumors. I hear this could be today. Like I said, but when that does in there's these sad people. That's just what is look. I've got a question. I mean, there's an actual sports question. I wasn't gonna horrible Jim today. Even though he's got his pants in. What about for some reason? But it's an actual sports question. And maybe today's not a good day. But it's a serious question. When you hear it you're gonna laugh, but there's been a lot of controversy in the news lately about transvestite at least breaking records, and there's been a lot of controversy about highschool track records and things are we talking about transgender. Yes, transgender. Okay. They'll going to be. I just I think we're past the point of calling them that. I mean, what's the deal? I mean is that to be is that a lot of people are upset about this. I mean, yeah, I mustn't as as for I have not I have not seen this story. There's a lot stories out there everywhere. I mean every year every spring there's like some track rigor get speed or something else. Get speed in the women's sport. And there's some women that are upset because they think it's not fair to be competing again. Right. Okay. Woman. Locked in a man's body. I understand that. Okay. I mean, I'm not, you know, like, I mean, this is honest topic. I actually wanted to talk about sports at some point in our career and. Squirrel. Is there some correlation to Jim in this call? Nobody could be okay. Does the on the air? Do you wanna talk with? No, no. He he's not calling show anymore. You quit. No, jim. They wanna call with anybody who has slapped him back in the list. I mean again, he starting off with man, and he's going to work as well with the gentlemen in New Orleans, and then he's gonna go to Millie, and then he'll take on somebody like myself or somebody like that. But but no anytime Jim was to have a discussion with me. I'll be more talked to that little lady upper thanks for taking my call. Aloha. Thank you. Great to hear from you. Well, that was some quality stuff to listening to Paul finebaum show podcast, Jake charters joining us and Jake. Let's let's talk about these Talla ratings and first of all how do you? How do how do we come up with this stuff? Well, I enjoy listening to the Florida fans. Call on your show. I was waiting to come on. That was good good stuff. There. The way we do. It is is everybody puts in their ballot. And the average it out and I actually had the same top six as the Spion top twenty five. I think there's a clear divide between those top sixteenths top six teams. And then everybody else, I think like seven to thirteen seven fourteen you can make a case for a lot of different teams. I actually had your longhorns Paul at number seven whoop. So so Jake what's talk about some of the interesting numbers. Florida eight I think most of the other ones we can we can understand. And I'm not saying Florida isn't a good team. But how do you think we come up with eight number that is really high issue? I for me, I had Florida. I believe it ten and even then I felt and I don't know it seems a little high for me even there, but I gave him the benefit of the doubt given what they accomplished last season. But I think I think LSU Florida. The Mississippi State ranking is kind of confusing to me given what they lost defensively and how much they struggled on the offensive side last season. So I think the SEC really when you talk about those three teams, Texas ADM's. Mccurry preseason option. Yeah. The Auburn has been so up and down under Gus malzahn. I think the SEC when you look at these rankings is kind of the most interesting conference because the rains for some of these teams. I mean, I could make a case for Florida all the way up to maybe seven. And then if you didn't wanna put Florida on your top fifteen K to talk Jay Crowder charter about the rankings. Again, it is may third these things can change and they will change Jacob as we look at the top. I mean, it's I mean. I mean, I know I know I know it's been Alabama in Clemson the last two years. But I mean, there doesn't seem to it seems like they're getting even farther ahead of the rest of the pack. There's not there's a clear gap between two and three. I mean, Clemson Alabama and then to some degree. It's everybody else, and you had Georgia Georgia three Oklahoma Jalen hurts for and I think really in Ohio State. I put it in that tier two you could really bring down these rankings into tears, and there's there's a tear at the top two teams. And nobody else even has a case for that tier? And then I think you have the Georgia yet, the Oklahoma, you know, the Iowa State, maybe Notre Dame. And then I think it seven to like twelve you have another tier any go from there. But I mean, the the easiest the easiest part of this ranking is one in two I mean, it's Clemson it's Alabama. And then you worry about the rest, but I can't imagine. There was anybody who filled out a ballot who didn't have Clemson one in Alabama too in. In that order, and quite frankly is there any real way, and doesn't doesn't doesn't matter. No. But is there any real way to differentiate the two right now than what we saw in in early January. That's all you have to go off on. And I don't think you can project out Trevor Lawrence a little bit. You would think. Okay. You didn't play his entire first season. Got better was awesome in the playoff. You would think that with what they have coming back around him that he'll be even better. Don't always work out that way. But I think if you were projecting out what Trevor Lawrence could be this season other than going off the national championship game. You know, that's how I can figure that rank. And I mean this time of year you mentioned it's may third what I'm trying to do power rankings or preseason polls. Look at two things primarily who's the quarterback. And what is the schedule of like, and I took schedule out of the equation for this particular ballot. But when it's close I always defer to who has the better quarterback. And that's kinda why I like, Texas and Oregon so much as I feel much better about what they have at quarterback than some of the SEC teams who I had a little bit lower. Okay. Let me stop you. Because you just brought up an interesting parallel here. We have Texas in Oregon organ plays Auburn touch plays LSU. First Auburn, we don't they don't have a quarterback. Mel John is narrowed the field from twenty four to two and they're both freshmen, and they both look like can't miss, but. We're talking playing Oregon to has one two or the number one two or three best quarterback in the country. Coming back. Yeah. Yes. Certainly NFL draft prospect. I mean, he's a top ten guy at least go into the season. I think it's a huge game for the Pac twelve I mean the Pac twelve desperately needs a marquee victory. I mean, you have to really go along way back to find the last time that they'd be. And I don't even know that Auburn is necessarily that that, you know, it's not ala. Bama, it's not Georgia. But still that would be a nice win for the Pac twelve they had an opportunity last year in the opener fell short with Washington. So I think there's a huge game for for or to the Pac twelve is a whole in terms of playoff reputation and right now I like Oregon just because I know what they have at quarterback in and you mentioned a win. It's a total wild card to see what is going to have their replacing Jarret stidham, and everyone loves Elvis you. I mean, I I have not heard LA LSU fans this fired up in a long time last year. They didn't know what to make out of it. They got a good quarterback. But they take on Texas, which beatdown Georgia as you as you look at that game, many many months away. What do you see well Vegas right now has LSU as a favourite in Austin? And that that's me is a surprising line. I think I saw like three point favorite. I thought I would have thought Texas would have been favored it given. What a favor given what they have coming back even what they showed in the sugarbowl. Yeah. Georgia maybe wasn't motivated whatever I thought Texas was impressive net gain in again. It's quarterback. I think Sam L anger is at talk seven top eight quarterback in college football. He was one of only six quarterbacks in history of of the FBI power five quarterbacks to I can't remember exactly what the number was. But it had a certain number of passing touchdowns and rushing touchdowns combined and the other five guys went is been trophies. So I don't know that he's like a Heisman Trophy favorite. But if you were going to put him in that second tier after two intres-. For lawrence. I I wouldn't disagree with that. So in Austin Tom Herman's third season Sam Eleanor quarterback. They have a lot of momentum a lot of young talent because they've recruited so well I like Texas in that game. And you know, we're talking about the Pac twelve against Auburn. This is a huge game for the big twelve. I mean, this is their marquee non conference game this year. Oklahoma really doesn't play anybody that UCLA Newson, Texas. This is an opportunity when the playoff committee is going to convene to November. They're going to come back and look at this game. And look at who won. If LSU wins this game that is going to be really bad, not just for Texas. But for the entire twelve in terms of getting a team in the playoff, Jake. We always ask you about Joe nurtured Oklahoma because you spend a lot of time around their program seems like a lot of confidence coming out of spring. What if what did you learn and what do you see happening is we get ready for the season? One play that sort of underscored the spring game. He scores a rushing touchdown. I think it was his last play of the spring game a couple of weeks ago and he gets the offense. Together to pose for picture in the end zone. Right, then and there to which he said he would have never done it Alabama with Nick Sabin that would have gone over very well. But it looks like he's really on a lot of fun. The team has taken him to me just based on my outside observation he's the undisputed leader of that team right now, which is really interesting considering he's only been on campus three or four months now he looked terrific in the spring game. And he didn't really get a chance to run the ball much because of the no contact jersey. So there is a ton of optimism at Oklahoma about Jalen hurts and that offense with CD have received her and then potentially the Sooners taken a step forward defensively without scrunch here from Ohio State as the coordinator, great stuff. From Jake Trotter. Jake, come back soon, we always appreciate it. Thanks for listening to Paul finebaum show podcast. Good for the Edgar Thomson. Covers the Gators for the sentinel Orlando Edgar thank you. I realize you're doing serious work down there as a journalist we we're we're having fun here on the show and lately. It's doggy doggy gator. So or Deidre dog? How are you? I'm great. Hey, thanks for having me. I don't know about serious work. But. Well, I'm always trying to prop up my friends in the newspaper business in case. I have to go back to one day. Well. Edgar. What is different since? Dan Mullen arrived. Oh, everything's changed. I mean, really. More than anything. I believe fan feel like, okay? They finally got to go. Now. I don't think they thought that originally. I mean, you know, he was potentially the third choice. I mean, I don't know the Ford is evident come out in the midst out, but Scott frost and chip Kelly, certainly came to be ahead of Dan on the pecking order when everything first started. But I think fans this feel like now they were maybe originally a little skeptical. We're gonna have to get down. And he was already Harry's Mississippi stayed. I mean that wasn't like the greatest twice Shire. But I think everyone's all in on him now. And there's a lot of reasons today. I mean last days turnaround was pretty pretty remarkable. I mean, certainly it wasn't perfect. Flawless. But for what he inherited that Ness with a quarterback is confidence is completely shot. Admittedly, fully Frank even said, he had no confidence and into last spring, and you know, for them to win ten games. And then. The way they did averaging what forty five point the game in the last, you know, four games. I think everybody feels like there's a ton of momentum going into this off season. And so yeah, I mean now you're gonna bring up his Georgia stuff. And so they're obviously feeling their out there. You know, you're taking on the SEC heavyweight and east heavyweight his me. And I think they feel like they're ready to compete with Georgia already. We'll say, I'm not sure. Yeah. No, listen, integrative approach to just to go. Walk up to the bullying starts wail in a way. And hope he doesn't hit you back. And in this case, it's great springtime chatter in and listen you cover the guy, I'm just giving you an observation from someone who sees Molin occasionally. I mean, he's he's having fun with it, which is unusual because the the last couple of Georgia coaches have really not had the last couple of Florida coaches, I've really not had much with anything. No, they, you know, must champ was 'traite serious than mcelwain. I mean, it's really wasn't engaging at all. So yeah, I mean and fans in like that about not going at all. So he he didn't make many, you know, friends away he is treated fans in the media in general and at the gator gatherings and all that Dan springs, energy and enthusiasm and some a little bit, you know, swagger for short. He's not even era. Then I mean, he's got a lot of the Spurrier, you know, trash talk to him. He, you know, the the spring game attendance saying I don't know how much he was really behind that. Because we did talk them off in the side. And he acted kind of like didn't even really know what was going on there that was a little bizarre. But I don't know what he's behind his fourteen thousand day thing either. But the fact is it's happening on his watch. And I'm sure he's having fun with it. He he really believes in what he can do. And that's you know, that's powerful. And we have that kind of confidence in your ability. And clearly he's. Excellent play caller. And that goes without saying when we saw last year and he can develop quarterbacks, and that's something to Gators him heading ages here since he was here. Really? Yeah. You're you're with us from the Orlando Sentinel talking about the Gators in and listen, he he told me when I saw two weeks ago Edgar that he he was completely in the dark about the numbers and all the little shots. But but I heard stuff and you've heard stuff he's and I think he'll be on the circuit soon talk and plenty of trash because he knows it plays. Well, and it does play well in intil doesn't and you know, where I'm going here at some point. You do have to be Georgia and the last two years have been less than spectacular. I realized he was only there for one of them. And it wasn't a blowout. It was a close game until a certain point. But as someone who understands the gator roster where are they right now in comparison to Georgia, which is a top four team. Well, yeah. Oh, yes. Yes. Look at their cruising. Paul. I mean, the last two years Georgia signed twelve five star recruits, according to twenty four seven sports the Gators don't even have one on the entire roster, which is unbelievable to thank the Gators. Have find like not twelve they haven't found four five stars urban Meyer left. They're still seven total under must chance, and I think it was five and then two hundred mcelwain. So and Mullen and get one last year last two years. So that's just the disparity on that five stars. And all that it doesn't always matter. Player development is a big part of it. And Dan is shown clearly can do that with what he did at Mississippi State, and they had three first round picks and only one of those guys vilely touted Semons the other two weren't what and Abram. But anyway, the point is I mean, Dan knows how to get the most out of his players at least it looked like it lasts fees. And and but still I mean, you're poking the bear or you know, who has a lot more talent right now you have Jake if de'andre swift. I don't have to Gators have a back of that ilk. I mean, prepare is very good Frank certainly isn't femme or hasn't shown to be Georgia's offensive line is very good Florida's as a huge question, Mark. So either start right there. And it's almost like it's going to be. Tough to beat them this year. You thank I mean last year was down here for Georgia. Right, right. I mean, and they're they're they're trending before trend into. But there's still a pretty big gap. Let me ask you to compare eating though. Because I mean, you you can only do so much your first year. But this was this was all Dan Mullen here, and I know a lot of attention was made the last day when he when he brought to the local players or nearby players in, but what is the assessment of of of Mohan recruiting right now in a state that should be. And I realize it's more than just Florida. But you have a weakened FSU down the street, but you still have everyone coming into the state. I mean, I it's it's doesn't and I know that the rankings this year, look better. But what what's your assessment of Florida recruiting under Dan Mullen, last, Kriton, classes, solid? I mean, what is it like nine very solid. And like you said he got called in three. From lake on on the final day of finding day. I think final defining defend like five top one fifty guys. That's not bad. That's a good good close there. And to finish nine was nice, especially when you look back to August last year, they were in the thirty, and you know, everyone was hitting the panic button. But you you nine at four as good not great. I mean, the standards top five and Georgia's then in the top five three straight years, so still some work to do, but he's certainly closed very strong, and they had a good class last year. And I do feel like the roster is pretty solid Paul. And one reason they've been good with transfers trae grind, the Ohio State transfer van Jefferson from all mess. John Bernard from Louisville. Those guys are all, you know, would would have been big time recruits and passed to classes if he would count them that way. So you know, he's getting the roster's looking solid, but George is could be spectacular. And it like you said there are top four team playoff contender in the gator still have some work to do there. But what they're trending, and Dan Mullen, certainly has moved things in the right direction. I think a lot faster and a lot of people expected for thirty could as we look ahead to the season. Certainly the season starts earlier than than usual. They had that week zero game. The Miami game was moved up it. It doesn't look that daunting. I mean, Miami looks very winnable. And when you look down the rest of the games, I it it. It looks like a schedule with F issue. Still pretty weak that the Gators could put up a pretty good number. You agree. I do agree. I think as I said, oh, and I know it getting, you know, getting in the weeds a little, but the reality is this out of line, man. That's going to be the key. They lost one hundred and forty one combined starts in that unit. They bring back twenty very young at the back of during the spring three first year freshman, it's really. Roy unit. I lot of skill at the play at the, you know receiver and running back to the defense has a lot of playmakers tiger grant, and how to use those guys and fully pay Frank certainly things like he's starting to figure it out even though as I noted on some somewhere recently, the three top twenty five opponents in the SEC Mississippi State LSU Georgia he had two touchdowns three interceptions in forty eight point four percent. Completion percentage from the bigger games. A better team. He's gonna have to play better than that for them to really take the next step. But that align is going to have to really be playing. Well, by the time lock Tober arise an Auburn an LSU in South Carolina and Georgia or all on the schedule that much. I mean, I've Tober is going to be very very telling for, you know, the program next year. Great stuff see soon. Thank you very much for coming on get.

"The Paul finebaum show podcast is brought to you by capital. One capital. One is reimagining banking offering account with no fees or minimums that can be opened in only five minutes Capital One. What's in your wallet, Capital One? And a welcome. The radio Porsche the audience factory. Was I apologize to you have already told the TV folks that we had a glitch while we were chatting with Glenn Gilboa. I mean, if you're talking about shoo football basketball baseball, really doesn't matter. Something is going to go wrong. And it did go wrong, and what we were talking about. While some of you were away listening to. Sa- messages was the fact that we went through the what happened on the court, Glenn you you still believe as you were leading to that LSU's on the to line could drop to three possibly with with this with this early exit. But I mean there were sixteen to in the regular season they want they won the championship. They be Kentucky and Tennessee at rob. So they they deserve to. I would say Danny brands at telling me Joe Nardi not that he is the last word, but he's our best word has LSU currently on the three. Hard to really I mean, you can argue all day. What all this means. But you'd rather be too. Sure. Sure. I mean, I think they deserve a to. They haven't been that high of a seed two or three since the nineteen eighty eighty one season. And this team set the school record for road wins in the SEC this. This was a great season. Even with this last second loss here. Okay. Now. Devante smart played. We'll take that. Then we're going to back up to will wait because by smart playing. What does that tell you? Well, they thoroughly investigated. Devante smart. As far as interviews with NCA officials and LSU Fisher, they flew to NCA officials in early this week and CA was working nonstop according to LSU, and they got they didn't find any irregularities on the devante smart end of it. So he was allowed to play, but they're still investigating. So he could conceivably be held out of the next game. Is what they're saying. He was just cleared for this one game. And until further notice. So they're still looking at it. Yeah. Yeah. And I'm trying to understand that because. They don't have with the feds have right? He's not on tape about these conversations about him are. Yes. So how does that correspond to future eligibility? If you have we'll wait on tape talking about it. But there there's no contemporaneous evidence. Implicating dante's. Right. Well, it sounds like they need a little more from the. Devante smart. And then just weighed mentioning, you know, we've got an offer taking of course, if you just make an offer. It's it's against rules for weight. Right. If you just make an offer in it doesn't doesn't necessarily implicate the player, right? All right. And if the offer is not taking it still indicates the coach, okay, I'm going to go back to that. Because we we've had so many things happened today that that have made us forget how this week or last week really began. So I haven't forgot. What kind of any, you know, there are some beets in America that just are precious to cover in mind boggling and probably a you're probably OD on your favorite ibuprofen. But is an exhausted. The kind of take us through the way conundrum in and let us before we get to what's happening next. I'm trying to understand really what has been going on all along. Well, like, I was telling you earlier, I if you're a sports fan in Louisiana, you had the Texas AM game one in football, and they should've called the grant dealt but hit a fumble LSU wins that game in overtime steady. Call it incomplete pass and Texas am wins. The state should have gone to the Super Bowl. You saw that call. And now the LSU basketball team is having its greatest season since one thousand nine hundred eighty one ruddy in many ways. And then all of a sudden, they're coach is gone suspended subpoenaed. And then this very. Damning federal tape wiretap from Yahoo sports. And then all of a sudden, everything is just just a mess. And it doesn't look like we'll wait is gonna return to LSU unless he can at least start the process and meet with LSU and NCA efficient show. Let's go back to when he was suspended. And why he he essentially was was told he had to come in. And and under the vice a council, he he chose not to is that is that right, right? He at first he was going to come in. But then his attorney told him not to and his attorney and LSU's attorneys spoke Sunday a week ago. And according to LSU that attorney never brought up this basketball investigation and trial. But then he brought that up in a letter Tuesday. So LSU doesn't feel good about the way Wade's being represented. And and even if there is an upcoming there is an upcoming trial. And Wade has been test has has been subpoenaed, right? May have he can still meet with LSU within CA people. And if there's a question he doesn't like he can not answer it, fully or whatever. I mean, he could still meet he made a big mistake and is making a mistake every minute by not meeting with LSU ended. I mean did he bring in? His constitutional rights and his state what does that have to do with this? And at the same time, he's breaking his contract with LSU, which clearly says you have to cooperate with some kind of an investigation and just man to man, if your boss wants to talk to you, you should go see him Wade's carrying himself like he's an employee on good terms. He's he's not an employee on good terms right now. And has it been for the last week? Let me go back over this story. First broke around the time of media days. And wait addressed it seemed like it that was that was a little different. That was another player that didn't end up at El. Okay. So different situation. Because some have said that maybe LSU should have done more then. But you're telling us that was that was that was it was it was a big picture, similar similarity. But it wasn't a Pacific. And there was still an offer being talked about you could you could see it that way. If you read that quote, but that it wasn't nearly as Pacific, but and luminous answer your question LSU did look into that way. I see that as they Wade have strike one. Okay. And they they looked at it. And they they were monitoring him. And then he got subpoenaed and then strike to. Okay. So. A back in October. Would it be fair to say LSU couldn't do a lot more control? They did not have the keys to that investigation. That was a federal investigation. I think that was a little too early. And actually, I've been told that Wade wasn't thoroughly honest with them at the time. He he was telling them at the time that that's it. And we found out since that there's more to it. Okay. So the real the real the caper really turned a week or two ago when they got subpoenaed, exactly. Well, it turns somewhat when he got subpoenaed. But he still was the coach. But really turned this was this young who's the revolu the revelation story because it was so dimming. Okay. And it the player on the team. Now, got it. Okay. It is really confusing. And if you're watching it from a distance, which most of us are, and you're not it is it takes experts like you to to keep. So you're guessing I understand you correctly LSU has done. All they can do up until now. Sure, I mean, the they they're being blocked by their coach who won't meet with them. So they were really their hands were tied and suspending him. Now, if Wade would've met with him he still may have been suspend right, but he needed to give himself a chance and meet with them, and he stayed into lose the rest of his salary in contract. If he doesn't change his his stance, and and meet with them because he's broken his contract by not discussing and say matters with them, and he could lose eight million ten million dollars. So there has to be a plan at some point. I realized that tournament's underway and LSU will play next Thursday or Friday, and at some point the leader continue honor they won't but what? What is what's the school going to do when this basketball season ends? Well, you know, the school really wants to keep will, wait. And they're all pop. Well, okay. I mean when it first happened they wanted to keep them because he's really popular. And I think that's the problem. I think Wade kind of thought he was bulletproof and they would never suspend him. But I mean, they may have to fire them. And then they may have to decide if they're going to keep Tony Benford or or if they're going to try to hire a new coach under the cloud of an upcoming NCA investigation, which they already did at the end of Dale Brown's tenure, which is why they hired her for coach named John Brady ended up being a good hire. He went to the final four, right, right? And went to the Sweet Sixteen very quickly. But it's hard to hire a coach under that cloud. So I mean other than hiring the coach I realized I feel like maybe we're in a classroom. But I'm really I am trying to understand this. Other than hiring a coach they gotta keep the players. They gotta keep players, and they gotta deal with a potential is there any doubt there's going to be an investigation. Well, the NCAA has been in town all week in Baton Rouge. I I mean, I think they're already investigating. They haven't actually released that they are whatever. But yeah, there's going to be an NCAA investigation of those in terms of a lot of the speculation, of course. But in terms of concern. The schools doing about all it can do now. But where where are they vulnerable? Well, LSU has a good record of its compliance office of being preemptive. And that's why they suspended Wade. Whereas other coaches haven't been suspended like, Bruce Pearl, and and, you know, Shawn Miller LSU goes out of its way to get in bed with the NCAA to ensure they get the benefit of the doubt later on. And that's their stance right now. That's why they suspended weight. And that's why I thought they would keep smart suspended, actually. But apparently they haven't found enough on him. Glenn always appreciate it. I know I felt like I was just going chapter and verse, but it's a complex case for those of us who don't live in Louisiana LSU. It's routine. Glenn gilda? Nice enough to spend some time with us. Mike white in the Florida Gators currently meeting with the media. For both. You guys go through the play for the winning shot there. Because Cook County I believe he started to play with the drive from the wing, and then the kick so both you could just describe the place canton. Would you start that one place? I just I was just driving and I see Nausori KOMO HR's. And then am I have is thinking because wisely playoff sushi sedan pass it Andrew and he just hit a big shot. I already knew he was gonna hit it because you know, working heart every Sunday against I so causeway so just had confidence in. I'm glad he hit and Indra. Originally that was in the play we drew up, but the gone to one three one we had to scramble. It was good job. I cannot say found me, and I had to let it go. So is this. I'm happy went down for, sir. Now the questions for either student, athletes, let's go to the island the right side. This question is for Andrew Andrew coach wide has been talking you up so much ever since the get go. He's talked about how confident he is and your ability. So can you kind of describe how validating it is for you to be able to come through in the clutch for him in such a big gay? Very validating because we work. We work worked together since the since June, July when I got here. He's he's he's helped our team so much from where we started. And it's just great to finally get a win that we we deserve for him for sure probably working puts in. Rage hand. If you have we're back here in certainly a very interesting conversation there with with Glenn Gilboa. We just got through hearing the delirious, Florida Gators who have been the talk of the day. Meanwhile. We have a halftime score of thirty six. Call South Carolina and Auburn right now the winner, of course gets. Florida. Let's get back to the calls today. Five to four two seven two eight five and Augie is in New Orleans Hilo Augie good afternoon, India. Hey, good afternoon. Paul and glint pretty good. Good interview. Right. Thank you very much. Well, anyway, you need to get Glenn whenever you have LSU sports. I don't think Raby too good. I mean cleanse not not buddy de but he closed anyway, Paul gotta say that LSU need to rebate after that game. If we paid anything we need to get some money back is that was not the typical performance when a number one seed nasty regular season champs. But I going back to a couple of days ago. Seems like Joe Aleve is one of your topic on the show. I think he should be fired. But not because of this those guys did the right thing. I mean, I know guilty into proven innocent. But that Cape is like a guy standing over a body with of smoking gun. I think they got no choice, but to keep weight that him home, Manny turned LSU basketball around that ain't that our luck we got. And we also got no luck against Florida. Do you think we'll ever be Florida in anything? I mean e. Beating guys every. But we got larva, and we can't feed the beat them. I don't know what it is. I don't know if the quack you schoolers the jinks or something now used to be Tennessee hall, and you'll days we couldn't be Kennedy in anything. And now, it's like Florida. So I don't know what we're gonna do. We gotta have some kind of blue or something. But as far as we'll wait, I think he's done. He's toast. I think he's made his own Betty, gotta it. And as far as Joe liba goes at the creditor the school. They did what they had to do. And I think anything otherwise would have made us look like a bunch of clowns. So it was like, no, no. You're right about whether it whether you like lever. Not and I think I know the with the prevailing wind of the vox populi is down in Louisiana. There's nothing else he could have done. And and I and I think Glenn made a great point. Now, why couldn't we'll wait have gotten in his car? Go gun gone down there and say, listen, here's where I am. I can I can talk to you about this. I can't talk to you about that. I mean coming coming coming to show coming with the supercilious attitude is is a good way to get fired. And that's exactly what's going to happen. Exactly Paul in should be fired in great the question about Wisey, raise constitutional rights. Well, why do you think he's raised the constitutional rights because he's guilty? I don't claim to be a constitutional expert. But there aren't any constitutional rights involved here. He he signed a contract. A work contract with LSU and in that contract. He is obligated to participate. I mean, a constitutional issue would be he is he is being forced not to talk. I mean way there's no constitutional issue here. You're missing you're missing something or not not maybe just looking you're looking past the point is we know which involved in his entire investigation. We don't know if there may be some criminal involvement or something potential charge against weight. Well, anything he used shoe and the MTA couldn't be brought against you. May you may you may have broken you may have broken the code there as you said I thought of that. And you know, anytime someone is arrested. They are Miranda with that means is they are told they have a right to an attorney the court will provide one, you know, they don't have to anything they say can and will be used against them. And I think that may be what will wait is talking about. If I if I only the bell went off their Augie. It will Wade cooperates with LSU. He helps himself short term somewhat of zeros game he helped himself contractually, but he could end up finding himself with criminal liability, by the way, he may already be in a criminal liability standpoint. But I I will not say what I just got three things. I think he is referring to that part of his constitutional, right? Well, we'll again, I'm only small type lawyer at criminal court Orleans parish. But tell you this there's more to the story than appears because he's not making his own legal counsel. You've got somebody advising him. And if there's a potential for some other charges hanging out there to be dropped on him anything. He tells the MTA. You you, you know, criminal law better than than we do based on what you know. Do you think he is in the crosshairs? With criminal liability with the feds. We'll Paul Ogata of her one believe that he's talked to his attorney, and that his Turney has Morgan idea if not the entire picture of what he's facing and under those circumstances. If I was his counsel. I would say you you just don't talk to anybody yet. Let's see the entire cases presented to us whatever's presented if he indicted, they'll get to get through discovery. They'll get to find out everything the feds have against until that point. He is risking. Jailtime possibly, and it is one to ten million dollar salary that if they'd be giving up he might be losing or after that he could beat actually a convicted felon down the line. So I think there's a lot more to the story than Bruce Pearl situation. And when people compare this to Hugh freeze, and Bobby Katrina, those are just personal conduct issues. It doesn't go to the essence of what the guys hired to do. And that is follow the law in the rigs and the policies of the NCAA it may not be federal guideline or a law, but they are the guidelines that he is bound to follow his coach. And I think it's clear that he violated those and the people who say we need to see the entire case before we allow the coach, I think that's crazy. I think if he was totally innocent has he's claiming to be he would have no doubt screaming and yelling and demanding to meet with L A show and tell his side who story his behavior is not indicative of an innocent person. So. I mean, I understand what we're what we're facing here as far as well. She's fans go but disguise brought a big stain. And I think one of the biggest scandals in the history of LSU sports. I mean, we complain about open. It looks like he's a decent guy and follows the rules, and we complain about pulmonary because he was number one in the nation now enough check those two guys seem to have a lot of integrity. And they don't do what? Wade did we got two good too fast? I don't think that's the reason it involved this wiretapping Wade made his own bed. So with that said, Paul not everybody down. Here's overlooking. The obvious. Well, said really agree with you argue stay in touch all pearly gates, great guy. And I gotta say one thing buddy della Berta with care turning over in his grave right now. This whole thing. You know, buddy d-, I didn't know him. Well, but I was huge fan from afar and on the rare occasion that I was on his show. It was truly one of the honors of my life. Thank y'all. Great stuff. We are here at halftime of Carolina in auburn's all tied up. If you just joining us. The Gators survive. A last second shot numb hard by hard Andrew harder. And he was here. Drenched in Gatorade. We'll be back with your phone calls in a number of guests, including the Commissioner of the SEC later on. Let me tell you about Pete who loved hockey and always wanted to play in the NHL Pete played since he was three and begged his mom to let him stay on the ice some nights, he even slept in hockey skates. Pete tractors and practice until one day when he was forty seven p realized he just wasn't that good. So he threw his skates in the trash. But then you heard how DIKO proud partner of NHL good save money on car insurance. So he switched and saved a bunch. So it all worked out or back. We're live in Nashville where halftime of South Carolina. And Auburn the first game was dramatic two three pointers in the final six seconds. But the Gators hit the one the matter Andrew. Nimh heart with the winner. He was by here earlier and hope your your chair has dried there John Adams Andrew sat there but after being bathing Gatorade. So with the first guy that was in there did not fare. Well, it seem it seem dry enough when I sat down and there's something appropriate Gatorade. And the Gators shared even though Tennessee already back with Ray, grays, exactly very very true. So John from from Knoxville, of course, Tennessee. I mean, we've been a couple of days we were wondering if vase we're going to show up, but they will play tonight. Yeah. And I think fans will show up. You know, you always think of Kentucky fans taken over this tournament. Right. They they've done it for many years. But when Tennessee played in Lexington this year. There were about five hundred Tennessee fans air, it never seen anything like that. In referenda Bentiu Lada games air a visiting team. I don't know how they got in there in John Calipari. Even had these Tennessee fans getting here. It's usually just he opposite. There've been many times through the years for Kentucky fans have taken over Thompson Boling arena growing. But there were. Yeah. There were probably I don't think there were more fifty Kentucky fans in Knoxville for that game this year. So I think Tennessee fans are really gonna make statement here in this tournament. Well, there's no reason not to the best season in. When was the last time there was a season like this? Why you go back Bruce parole Hannah team thirty one in five. Okay. So that was they were number on the country. They went to the very very flea and another team went to the elite eight so. Yeah. Fans were really excited about those teams. But I just think that long-run Tennessee was number one for four weeks. And I think fans really got into them having the number one team. And I think that's why so many of them were in Lexington. And tonight. I mean, this is going to be an amazing night. You have Kentucky playing first Tennessee later. And should they both win? What's his place can be like an afternoon. Yeah. It'll be and what will downtown Nashville be on. I think it's I mean it's crazy on on the dullest night of the year. I know I just think it's a really good thing for the tournament. And if you're not vested in any team. That's the matchup you want on Saturday. Yeah. I mean, it's really good for the tournament. No doubt. And Kennedy most deal, I was state and obviously Kentucky with Alabama. You you would expect both to get by. LSU to get by Florida to. Yeah. I mean, you'd never know in this conference are so many good teams. Now, you have an off night. The other teams hitting threes. You could get in trouble releasing. So the bracket right now, Florida is moved on they'll get the winner. It's going to coming a little strange if you have Tennessee and Kentucky tomorrow and Florida and either or your it's almost like like, why is this not the finals? But that's just the way the savings fell. Yeah. And so I think there's almost you look at it the championship match-up would be kind of a letdown in a way because you'll have to highs ranked teams in the semi John D do you agree with many of the cognizant I around here that there if we get to that game tomorrow afternoon. A number one seat is at stake. Yeah. I I really think you you would have to give this league. A number one. See now if Kentucky and Tennessee voted Vance. I mean. They done too much this season not to get one. So that just adds to it. Talking to John Adams here from the Knoxville news sentinel about this amazing Tennessee team, and yeah, you think back even you mentioned BRUCE'S elite eight run, I think they lost Ohio State that was a really good team. But some of the better Tennessee teams have not done much in the term. And I go back to and I covered the statement while you were somewhere else in college. Of course. I mean, there's a famous Bernard king or earn. I think they lost the first round of the NCAA tournament. Or maybe there was a second round. But they didn't go very from. Yeah. And Tennessee's never been to the final four, and you go that was such a different air though. It was you didn't have so many teams in the tournament. And that was certainly a really good Tennessee team. Amazing. I mean, they have some other good players on that team as you remember? Absolutely. And but I think this is a really good one too. I mean, you got a lot of I think the fact that grant Williams has been to time Alessi C, you know, two time SEC player of the year. I tell you what you could also make very strong case at point guard, Jordan bone is the most valuable player on this team. I think he kinda gets. He kinda gets underrated a bit because of Admiral Scofield all SEC player big personality. And then of course, of course, grant Williams, but Jordan bone really makes his team go in that gave me head against Kentucky in Knoxville. Amidst all those four and five stars for Kentucky. He was the dominant player on the floor. He did a lot of things. Well, and I think he is really impressed in BA scouts this year. So last year a Tennessee got knocked out on oil. Oh, I remember. Yeah. Loyalist, Chicago, obviously at the time, it seemed odd, although it really didn't seem autoweek later when they made it to the final four. Yeah. They did and Tennessee easily could have won that game. And I think you go back. I mean, they had forgot his name, but loyal had a really strong post player, and that's Tennessee can sometimes be vulnerable in that area. I think it's very important to see how much read Travis of Kentucky can play in that game. John Calipari said earlier that he's going to play. But he he played in the first game in Lexington. Didn't play in the second game. I know home court had a lot to do with it too. But they three Travis. He gives them something the other post gas dome talking to John John I asked you every time I talk next week. Maybe I'll I'll won't be asking you again. But it's been a week since the lady vol's were eliminated to quiet week. Give us the lay of the land with with Holly Warlick will Paula. I mean, I think they're going to make the NCAA tournament. And I think if they do I just don't see athletes director, Phillip Fulmer wanting to make make a move, although I don't think of ever seen a fan base so galvanized on one issue in so wanting a change in this case everywhere, I go that's what I hear. But I don't know Phillip Fulmer cares about you know, what those fans are saying. I don't know that there's some big money guy saying you either make a change our. I'm not writing checks. As a dangerous thing to do now with all this FBI scanned. Yeah. In making. I mean, I hear this a lot from other fan dicing making the tournament just seem like Tennessee making the being being on the on the bubble and getting in not really what this program's blueprint is all about. No, see that's the thing Powell where as you can say, well, I'm not gonna far coast made the SEC tournament. She's made it every year but fan cell look at it that way day locate a program that wants competed for a national championship in made it to the foul four many many times op-ed almost it was almost a considered a disappointment. They didn't. Yes, it was the file four. And now the foul four seems remote. And that's where the fans are coming from. So we'll find out Monday, if they make it you think they will. And maybe that will take care of itself and questions we'll go away. I know about the way whatever happens is is not my decision. I'm just looking forward not answering the questions, and I know you are. A lot of questions on now in great to have ya. And we made it through an entire segment without talking about Tennessee football because it's March. But next time, I'm sure we'll find our way over to that John. Thank you, always say. Thank you live in Nashville. We will come right back. Welcome back. We're glad you're here in music city. They call it smash Ville. Call whenever you want. But right now offer leads South Carolina by three Florida. The winners in the first game the upset over LSU with a big shot. At the end. Let's continue with more phone calls here at eight five five to four to seven to eight five and Jerry is in Kentucky, and you're up next. Hey, jerry. Aibo just wanted to say longtime listener, probably third time caller. I was born and raised in Kentucky, or if he weren't a UK pain, you communist, but after Billy Donovan took over at Florida. I become gator fan and actually lived in white one Florida for a little over ten years and big huge gator fan more football than basketball. But after watching their game against LSU today. I would rather win a rather have that win than to win one hundred dollars scratch off lottery ticket. So proud of my Gators is. And I'm sorry about all the trouble will Wade's going through don't wanna get into bed. I don't know if he's guilty or not. But as gator fan, I just wanted to say they're went over LSU today was better than winning one hundred dollars on a scratch off. Thank you very much. It was a fantastic game. Andrew them hard with the game winner, the three pointer at with one second left. We had Andrew up here for the second time this week. It's great to see him again. Thanks for the call. Appreciate it. Very very much. Bob is in Kentucky, and you are on the air. Hi, bob. You say Paul, you know, it's been great for UK after do guys mad at the beginning of the season to come all the way back, Iran. This point I think tonight Alison Alabama fan. They're going to be more more UK blue in that stadium. It's going to be the sixth man delays from the crowd. Plus, you k b rested. We're Alabama be tired. And hopefully, we're going to get up here and get a big win. And it'd be ready for Tennessee. Well, thank you very much for the call. Great to have you on. Appreciate it. Let's talk to David next in Birmingham. David, welcome. You're next up. Hey, paul. We are doing great. Thank you. Ow. Timeout. I want me B's committee. Remind themselves that they don't we key? It's not a Duff's when they make a decision, and what I'm saying is that if thing like they always try to find a week Alabama to get in on what would ball basketball and on Reverend soon back to football how they get them to buy that Dow for naked sit down on and don't be in his easy gem show, but if they get into net temps game, but in and now did basketball they trying to wiggle away by Alabama that to get in now and as other teams has more deserving than Alabama. Well, listen, they're not in yet. My friend. They better they better win tonight. If they want to go to the tournament. Standing at tall. But it seemed like this you need being in discussion with record get. Well, I'll tell you what I read a piece today. And this is the they call it the bubble. They they said this is the softest bubble in thirty years. And I agree. I mean, there are some teams that are going to get in this tournament. That are quite frankly, terrible. They don't they don't belong in national championship. But when you allow sixty eight teams, and I realized a number of those are automatic bids from conferences, this is what you get but Alabama on a normal year, swimming, they don't win tonight. Would not would not be deserving of the NCW term. And that's what we've we've come down to though if you get in. It's like it's like an accomplishment where I still believe it it shouldn't be. I mean, you ought to you ought to have to do more than just a back back door yourself into into the double A tournament. But in this year, you're just simply couldn't your compared to everyone else. And that's the way it goes. Thank you for the call. David. I do appreciate it. Well, we we got another couple of hours ago. The Commissioner will be with us in the final hour.

Arguably the most famous player in gator history, Tim tebow will be honored into the ring of honor will be with him earlier in just a few minutes, but a lot of excitement, a lot of buzz on this campus. Amazing what a big win on the road. We'll do four weeks ago. People were wondering about the future of media future this program. Not anymore. Dan Mullen going into starkville last week. A huge win were Mullen clearly outcoached his successor and everybody here is fired up. This is a big time robbery game. Gators is this can I is this actually true? The Gators expect a sell out for the first time in three years. Thank you. Jim mcelwain. He nearly buried this program, but things are going well. The show begins now. I think we've learned how to win games in different ways. You know, we won, but in high scoring game where we created a lot of turnovers and a lot of big, explosive plays the next. We want an into hostile wrote environment and found a way to to grind it out and play great defense and flip field position and play ball control game. So I think guys are learning. There's there's not just one way to win a game that a lot of ways that the team can come together to win games and we need to continue to do that as the season progresses. Full. Will read all the pharma ball. You mix. And we say Hello to you from Gainesville always wanted our favorite stops along the way. We were here last year for this game. We were supposed to be here the year before there wasn't a game here in ended up moving to Baton Rouge in two straight here in the swamp for alma for LSU. And of course, Florida Michael scar Nekia he will start at QB for the Gamecocks against Missouri, Jake Bentley in banged up. Meanwhile, the Gators we'll talk about an minute, but Bentley. Is not been a vintage season. Missouri will he will get his first major start. Well, thought of quarterback. We'll see about that same Gamecocks to win badly. Meanwhile, Kentucky in AM, bear, Brian Kosheh, Kentucky. He left to go to him Amaechi on where he left an MD go to last time. Kentucky travel was Temer nineteenth nineteen, fifty three. And I don't think I say this very often, but I had not been born yet. That's how long ago it's been in that gay defeated, Kentucky, seven to six that has absolutely no bearing on tomorrow's game win or a loss against Florida can change the impression Ed ores, you're on hot, big, win over North Carolina over Miami big win over Auburn, but a win. The Mara here would really help him immensely. Afford LSU's always a big game, and you know, it's your your crossover from the SEC west. So we play them every single year. There was a big game every game and was going to be a dogfight guys are gonna drive there and they're playing with their hearts out on LSU side in ourselves, and everybody's with bows into school tuned, offensive about. Team dot one uniform the game, so we're not fully on, will we know. That's demanding bottles. Second down, Tibo jump bath. Fifty five. Co, Gen's mayors calling, really good games. We know what he expects from us each plate and as long as we execute how he how he wants us to execute. We're going to be really good blood Wilson tests, batch of I've been in coaching, big robbery, two great universities, bland always come down to less list. One last play and three seconds. Guys over the time they spot them all show. Florida hangs on a win over Florida is would have a tremendous guzzle down the road and what help us take the next step. Well, the today's guest begin with Tim tebow. Joined by. Dead on Todd Louisville, Desmond Howard from game day, Dallas. While we could hardly hear because they're doing the practice for the flyover, Tamara and. I've never been in combat, but that's what it must sound like when when the when the air force comes into save the day anyway, welcome to the program. We're glad you're here. We will continue with more calls at eight, five, five to four to seven to eight. Five guest list is pretty amazing. Let's start with Nathan to get us going. Hello, Nathan. Being power. I said that was growing like a champ and understand that has confessed past the country. But you know, we have a plethora run runback or defense. Top-five antiques steers biodefense issue is is good if not better than it was when it nation. And I really think we'd go down there small. Okay. I I'm not really sure what's going on here whether they're practicing for tomorrow now. But we have had just a couple of fighter planes go over and there's almost no virtually no way to hear anything. But I think you're asking me about LSU's playoff chances. I mean, it's hard to say right now it's impossible to predict until we, we see the next couple of weeks. You know, if they lose Alabama in a narrow game, I think they would have a chance. But right now I think LSU is going to need to be in the SEC championship game in win to get to the playoffs. Andy is up next in Kentucky, Andy. Thank you. Yes. I just wanted to talk a little bit about hefty football. I've been saying since John Reid days and I, I'm proud of what they're doing. I excited about it, but I'm not ready to jump in and say, you know, we'll go eleven one or I think if if they can go nine three, it'll be a great season. McIntosh Hispanics, and they just good to say them nine and matching up with other teams. And yes, they have the call. Thank you very, very much. We're up against a break here. We have a lot to do, including the head ball coach of the Florida Gators he will join us momentarily Tim tebow as well. We are live at the university of Florida. It's Friday for coming right back. You're listening to the Paul finebaum show podcast what a collection of passed in. President. Dan Mullen the head coach, the Gators Tim tebow the just all time legend. Let's start with the current enrolled him out here. So I'd make sure you get a little bit of a blog that's me you that you earlier like three or four people. I coach, I know I know coaches look ahead, but I want to get a quick fill out about last week that had to be an amazing experience for you really unique. You know, from me, I don't think I've ever been in a game like that before it. You know, try to keep all the emotions out of it per game, but you know, post game it is because you have different. You know, you have so many emotions, you know people say, what about the emotion? Well, there's different groups you have emotions of, you know, the people have starkville who friends and family that we, you know, my kids both born there that have been around. You have the fan base at a believed in you. I mean, the administration, you have your feeling about them and then you have the team and you know, I mean, how close are the coach player relationship? And so you'd have to the game, you know, you start to see all the players and it's probably the first time ever where you go into lock your I mean juice. I mean, you wanna game, you're, I mean, I don't. I'm not upset. But you do feel for for the players on the other team in that situation. I know we need to get to this week, but I wanna ask another question about last week is from the moment you've got here. You've talked about getting your guys to strain to be able to push themselves to a level. They never thought possible last week was, in my opinion, the hardest. I have ever seen this Florida team play, and I think a big part of that because they knew how much it meant to you and they played for you. And if you could just describe what that means to you for your team to play harder because they know what it means to you. Well, that was that was really special. You know, because you know one, I think that they're learning to win, and then you got to win. You have to learn to play hard. But for me, personally, you know, for the players in that game. It shows a lot, you know, because I talked all week. The game was not about me even before the game. One of the guys like, hey, can we come out locked arms with you for this game? Because you know everybody, everything's about begetting after you and they're anti you. And I said, no said it's about us playing. Our game plan is hardest. We can, but after the game, the respond to all the players had to me, you know, I mean, it was really special shows how they bought into what we're trying to do here because every single one of them said, hey, coach, we know you didn't want it to be about you, but we played for you to make sure you got that win because it was important for us to make sure that you got that win, and it shows how they've bought in how they've played in what we're trying to do, and it shows how we're coming together as a team. What did you think was that turning point? Probably from Kentucky game to the state game where you felt like you got that by just. It's actually it's amazing for the guys is pretty matter of fact on Sunday after Kentucky we came in and our Monday morning after Kentucky, we came in with watch, you know, talk about the previous game wrap it all up and the maybe they thought I'd be mad or upset or one of the, here's the film. Here's here's us in practice. Here's us in games. Here's us not playing with great effort and strain in practice. Here's us making mistakes in practice there. It is in the game pretty matter of fact. And I said, if you want it if we don't practice differently than it's not gonna look differently on Saturday. And as I think our guys really started to understand that and buy in and then you know, so we go up and you, you play against Tennessee. A couple of weeks later, I said, look at the difference between the practice against Kentucky in the practice against Tennessee. Now, let's put the the exact play random practice in the match the games. Look at us playing at much higher level of intensity of strain of effort, and that's what you need to do. And I think what they realize is they bought in. That is saying, hey, coaching and what you're right when we practice hard, we play well, you know, we practice when we, we pick up the intensity and the physicality and the effort at practice. It translates to Saturday, you know, it kind of goes back to our offseason. They bought it the offseason. Here's really looked up before the offseason Nick. Savage trains us for eight weeks, and here's what we look like after the great man featuring. Right, hey, here's a picture of you before. Here's a picture you after and it's easy for them to buy in when they can see you talking about buying in. Well, it's not just your players that evolved in the university and the fans, and they're excited. We just heard this is the first sellout here the swamp since two thousand fifteen. I said earlier today, I think it's going to be the most rowdy environments. That's probably two thousand nine. And I think the place is going to be going crazy at three thirty tomorrow afternoon. Talk about what that means and how they can help your team. Well, that's so special. You know what I went back. I spent all spring explaining to ever wherever I go to speak all around campus, talking to students about creating the atmosphere, creating the home field advantage, getting the swamp back to be in the most intimidating stadium in the country. That's what I know. That's what you played in. You know, that's that's how that's how we won national championships here and everybody thinks it's just the talent on the field. Now we had some talented teams and some pretty good players, and we had a decent quarterback in two thousand eight. Right. Okay. I mean, you had to manage game. We have so many athletes, so you know, had Murphy, right and rally Cobra all those guys doing bits and Jeff Dem's and rainy. So I'm really, I mean, anybody could manage that even that offense the quarterback position, but you did. Okay. What are you guys saying? How did he do. But it was also the atmosphere was also the student body, and I'm going to tell you the biggest thing. The first thing I did was went all the students around campus because they set the tempo, the student body sets the atmosphere of everybody else. If the students are they're on their feet, early going crazy jumping up and down creating crowd noise in excitement. Everybody else in the gator nation is going to feed off of the student body, the energy and the excitement that happen. I love y'all too. But that is what it's going to be like, and that's the atmosphere willing to do in our team. We gotta go out there and perform on Saturday to to capture and create and keep that environment tomorrow about LSU, but it's also about Tim tebow. Yeah. And like to ask you and then if you don't mind jamming and talk a little bit about what this honor means to this university and SAM's. Well, I think when you look at what Tim is did while he was here. And what he's done since. I mean, he's. Transcendent per transcending person, and not just an athlete. You know, I mean his his work that he does around the world is special. You know what's crazy is, and I got to live at part here, you know, at him even I got to walk out with with with Bob CBO. Yes, and I'm looking, I'm like, where's Tim? Is he okay? Getting them off the Brackenfield when I showed up as I was used to doing it that you don't see college players that were, you know, one name athletes while they're playing college football around the world, and one of the most famous athletes in the world, and then he's used that stage as an athlete. Both in, I think one of the most underrated things he's ever done is play pro baseball. You know, because I don't think anybody realizes how hard that is, you know, playing quarterback and playing football and making it to the NFL. That's pretty special. But you know, that's what his focus was in his intensity. And you know, he just gonna. He's gonna will things to happen. What made him so special, but it's really the outside stuff that makes him special person. You know, I think he, he teaches lessons to people around the world. Anybody has. Has anything to do with them leaves a better person. Anytime you have contact with them, you leave a better person and the effect he has on people around the world is just special and. Do I am proud of them. I think I think for me was special about tomorrow is my grandfather's dream to see Florida win an SEC championship. He died before that happened, you know, and and we talked about it when I got here how much it means to the state. These fans to people in for me being a gator, wasn't something else for years as a lifetime in. So to be able to bring back, you know, my kids and hopefully grandkids stadium and say, you know, we, we did some really funds. Cool special things here. I think that's what's memorable for me when you can't outrun those years, no matter what you've done. But if you had to go back there and you you, you joked about it, but what what was he like to be with every day to coach, you know how many. You know how many we have more reasonable than the Ono. We have a very unique relationship. I would say that there's probably very few people in the world that within about thirty seconds, I can push every button to get him like bright faced red light ready to just like go crazy. No, because we spent so much time together, you know, during those years and such a great relationship. And when you're. Laugh at it the three years where together I spent more time with him than I did with my wife. And, and I mean, that's, you know, that's a true fact, and you do and you have such a great relationship with so much fun now, I mean, you gotta understand the intensity that you see that was all the time. You know, he's that intense showing up every day, ready to work ready to be prepared. And in doing that as a coach, that's what you love. When you can sit in there and you're just ball, you know what a and this is. This is how we're going to tack. Here's what's going to happen. Here's your going to exit. Here's how I need you to do things leadership, every aspect of just talking to every aspect of it, and he was a young guy. You know, I mean, you know, you look and I don't still to this day and sometimes people realize the pressures that he was under as a student athlete. You know, of of that way of, you know, you'd sit in the calls and the requests and all the stuff that he did that, you know, I always have to be the chart to be the bad guy. We walked from practice, right? I'd always be the bad guy trying to make sure people stay away from, you know, and he can still just be a college kid at times in. But he he's, he's just gonna headed. Dennis, probably to remember when. I remember when I bring practice because I enrolled early in spring practice and I had a, I Wednesday practice and I had a bad practice finished in the two minute drill. I think I threw a pick Reggie Nelson and I remember I go into his office afterwards and I was emotional. He was looking at me like, why are you most show crying right now? And I was like, I do anything to be great, and we sat down and had a long talk after that, and you remember that your office and you know, moments like that where you really, you know, you learn so much and people talk about just in the games because that's what they get to see, but it's behind the scenes in those moments when you you talk or I'll sit there and I'll say, but coach Mullen y teach show me this. I don't get it or then show you. You learn it and you work through and you work through your struggles or the good things, the bad things that things that come easy, you practice, it'd be so many times where I'd like go just gimme the ball and I'll get it done and you'd have to train me. No, you can't just will everything sometimes just trust me and trust the process and this. And so it was so much of. Being, you know, getting outside of my comfort zone. That's something that goes Molin did a great job of us, push me to places I wasn't comfortable in. So in the game, I was comfortable and whatever situation we were put in that fair to say, yeah, we had a lot of fun. Yeah, one of the things you do see and people don't realize, you know to in meetings, we'd have a lot of fun beyond football. Now, you know, you sit there on on a Friday. You know. We'd sit in the quarterback meeting and an urban would you know quarterback meetings for start when special teams meetings with start? Right and urban. He's Laureus that that forty five minutes special teams meetings our and twenty. It might go along. We'll sitting in there and all of a sudden they're like, okay, I'm like, all right, a meeting Sunday, like no special teams just ended. We're going to start the meeting now for the offense. And we have so much. You'd have a lot of time to get and we spend time talking football non-football life everything, and I learned, I hope you know to me one of the things take great pride in and his coach coach that you have a positive impact on your players and on young people's lives. You know. And I hope that what I was able to do was have a positive impact on Tim's life. It help them achieve goals that he wanted to achieve in his life because I know also on the non football side of thing, he had an unbelievable positive impact on my life on helping me become the man and the father and the husband that that I try to live up to. And the coach tried to live up to every day, Tim, a no in coach news. It's never about you, but tomorrow I know it's important your family because here enough. Talked to your dad about it, but is there any way to put into words what that this day is going to mean to all the t.. Boz and all of your friends and family? Well, I think it means a lot. It means a lot because it's, I think it's honored to my parents as much as me to my grandparents to all of the people that have invested all the coaches who have loved me a cared about me all the players. You know, Percy Louis Murphy field Trautwein all of the guys that we played with and everyone's invested in that, but more than any award or recognition, tomorrow's about Florida, trying to beat LSU. He got that right. Well, I will say this, you know, I mean not be. I don't think I know with him knowing who he is, his name being on on the ring of honor's really special deal. But after that ceremony, I don't think is intensity massad lines going to completely change on winning the game, and we're recognizing the two thousand eight national championship team tomorrow in every one of those guys that are on the sideline. The intensity about winning the game is. I know they're competitors. They're going to want that just as bad as anything else not to put any more pressure on. No. Make okay. You to win coach to to help you win. We're going to get you out of here. You can go back to your team gets. Thank you so much coming out here and Tim always. Great. Thanks. Take a short break. We're live in Gainesville. You're listening to the Paul finebaum show podcast. Hello? Everybody you're looking live at fans Ville a college football utopia. With a rivers flow with ice cold. Dr. Pepper mission where every day is Saturday in everyone's fan, even babies and the seasons never chained because the only season is college football season get a taste of fans villas fall during a college football game near you. Dr Pepper, the official drink of fans Ville, grab some today. Welcome back. We've we're only thirty minutes into the program, but it will be extremely difficult to top that first segment, just the affections and love and respect that we all witnessed between Tim and Dan Mullen was just truly spectacular and extraordinary to to be a witness to anyway, but we weren't. We are going to come back to that subject a little bit later on. We are now going to move over and about to Fayetteville Arkansas, where the crimson tide show up tomorrow as a huge favor. Tom Bill Ardy there and the Tom, thanks for the time. Let's let's talk about this game. Nick Sabin, Mitch. It was a trap game. I'm sure they've got a big chuckle and then he went off on the students is the adding that much difficulty talking about the opponent, Tamar. Well, I will say this. I think the opponent tomorrow will actually be the best defensive team, but Alabama played to this point and I think that's where some of the concerns are. And if you remember Paul a couple of weeks back, you know, Nick Sabin was asking the media to start pointing out some of the negatives pointing out some of the areas of improvement that needs to take place. Well, I'll give you a few right now. Alabama's not very good. In terms of their kicking game, they're five of nine on field goals. Their bow bottom into the packed in net punting. All right. They have not done a good job of tackling and space with their use youthful secondary given up a lot of yards after the catch last year. This time they had no turnover on offense. Right now, they got four. So there a little things. The dick stabile wants to work on that he's trying to magnify with his team and it's difficult to do that and get people to take him seriously. When you see the margin of victory that you're. Seeing each and every week. And I think that's why he calls disa- trap game. He knows that Arkansas has had a rough, go of it on offense, but defensively he sees him as being a pretty good team. Well, yeah. I mean, they did play better last week, Tom, I'm interested because I was in the air during the game and saw some highlights, but it's not. It's not like it was a game. I wanted to go back and watch frame by frame with what did you see in the Arkansas game to make razorback fans believe? Well, the first thing that I saw watching the tape, it took me about two or three series in, and I sent a text to our broadcast crew here, and I said, hey, guys, Arkansas is pretty salty on defense. Their issue right now. Offensively is they can't stop turning the football over it in opportune times. That's really what's gotten them in trouble. You go back and you look at the Auburn game, and you see that score and then you go look at the box score and you're saying, wait a minute with one drive to go in the game. If you tell Chad Morris that Auburn just got their two hundred total yard of offense. He would've said, how many points did we win the game by? So when you look at the little things that are hurting Arkansas right now, it's turnovers, it was ineffectiveness early at quarterback, but now that. They've settled on ties story. They feel like they're making some progress. That team, I think, really respects tie story because he's been beaten up. It was the Auburn game that changed the chemistry of this Arkansas team, and I think is an overall unit. That's why you saw them come out and play so well against Texas, am they gave Texas AM fits. They were down seventeen nothing. They come roaring back, make that thing again, but what do they do? They turn it over on the final drive. So eliminate the turnovers improvement will come from Arkansas, will it'd be good enough to pull it up said, and what coach calls a trap game tomorrow. I doubt it. Tom, listen, I know you're a straight shooter also realize you're doing the game. So I think we all want people to watch and they will share first of all, we don't want people leaving the game early save and we'll come after you too. So don't turn it off. I do. I am curious about that because that was that was really the biggest story of the week, Nick Sabin going off on the students, your thoughts Medicis on what and why he did it? Well, I think that he wants there that he doesn't want the fan base, the student section, the enrollment to become complacent. He doesn't want them to become so expecting of the effortless wins that it's not worth their time. And I think in in the words that he had this week for the student section, those are also words directed his football team. See guys will look board. Everybody is with you right now. Well, you know what? If you're bored with this Alabama team, that means you're winning a lot of football games. I'll say this, this is what Alabama is right now. And this is probably why the students are are leaving the stadium. Alabama is the extremely intelligent brilliant student that hasn't been tested for AP courses. So he's just going through. They're just going through the motions and getting by because it's easy, right? The problem with Alabama is there is no AP course for them. There's nowhere up for them to go, what are they going to go into the AFC south. So right now the students need to be engaged with appreciation for the on the field performance by Alabama and don't get caught up and being so complacent getting bored with winds, it's hard to win. I don't care who you are each and every week. Todd, before you go, you're in starkville last week, and we just had an Mullen by here, and I think you understand the importance of the game here, but before we get to Florida. I want to get your impressions of Mississippi State as they get ready to take on offer. Well, they had a real distinct issue last week when Todd Grantham and Florida's defense decided they were gonna come after Mississippi State and they were gonna play manned defense. And the reason why that became a very big issue is because Mississippi State is an RPO run, pass option offense. And when you play man defense and bring pressure, there is no run pass option because the guy that you're trying to isolate to put him in a conflict of assignment is already assigned to another offense of player. So if you don't have answers when the RPO game is taken away, you're going to struggle offense and Mississippi State last week did not have answers for Todd Grantham pressure in man to man defense. And then conversely, Florida. They just methodically hung in there. Nothing spectacular. They just made a few more plays than Mississippi State did. I think the thing that stood out to me the most is it. Nick FitzGerald has proven that he's not a natural passer that can win without the RPO game and Mississippi State right now is not a great team in the offensive line begi Tom anyway. We will talk to you next week, and we're going to continue here a lot of guests who come including your phone calls at eight, five, five to four to seven to eight five, Desmond our live from Dallas, where Oklahoma and Texas many, many more guests here as we continue listening to Paul finebaum shield podcast.

Welcome back. We're live in Gainesville as everyone knows how important this weekend is here. Another very big weekend in Dallas, a few of miles to our west, Desmond Howard from college game day. Joining us always great to talk to Desmond present about holiday and express be the radius, Desmond, thanks for the time as always get us ready for, oh, you, Texas. One of the great robbery games in the country. Yeah, tremendous atmosphere here, the Texas, Dave fair. I tell you what you got to come check without because the way they do the stadium when they split it. Fifty, fifty is unlike anything I've ever seen in college. Football is a fun atmosphere, but these two teams that they watch tomorrow afternoon, you know, they're gonna get after. No, you right now, the hot team with Kyle of Murray's playing the high level. He's mentioned all the Heisman conversations and obviously coming to the season. The big question Mark is gonna feel Baker Mayfield shoes. His kid just wanted to Heisman was just a number one draft pick and NFL draft or the Cleveland Browns, how you going to feel those shoes. I think Kyle Murray so far as an admirable job, completing seventy percent of his passes. Sixteen seventeen touchdown throws just to into session, but even more important, just the way he handled himself. He's a hell of a competitor. The guys on the on the. Team, they absolutely love him. He's waited his his his way too. But this moment is Chaz. These take full advantage of it, and he's just such a dynamic and explosive player with the ball in his hands. A specially out in space is like he's planning at another level very loose and he has his office roll than, but the thing about it. Paul is always feel as though this game and his core, the physical game is all about the physicality and ever since the second half of that USC game. I think Texas, they really found their deep. They've really been playing great football and the defensive side of the ball named the plan well offensively to, but just such a physical brand of football defensively. So see that these things and how they going to try to contain Kyle Murray and such an explosive office, what how they Hollywood Brown, those guys is going to be, you know, some some fun to watch tomorrow does Howard, whether it's Desmond, let let me switch gears. We're, we're in Gainesville this afternoon and certainly. A major game. You have LSU hosting Georgia next week, but they have to get out of the swamp. I impressed first of all by LSU. No, no, not at all of. I'm just saying they did not press Alabama's. Impressive. You know LSU was okay. I mean, they, they won game. They've looked good doing it. They haven't looked, you know, in my opinion rate, but you know, they're handling them business and that's, that's the bottom line. But no, I'm not pressed by them. I think they're going to be challenged by by Florida. I think Florida in the swamp thesis is going to rise to the Cajun. You know, they, they have a, they got a lot of pride. The, I think they're going to try to stop the run on I four, both Joe borough can be done with his arm. So I think this is gonna be really an interesting game for LSU coming into the swamp. Talking to Desmond Howard there. There are a lot of big games tomorrow, certainly in the SEC a couple of look like mismatches, of course, Alabama, but one game, I wanna go back outside the SEC for a second here in get your thoughts on on what maybe the the most critically important game from the playoffs standpoint, other than Texas in that's for Jinya tech team that looked terrible if you weeks ago but has come back a little bit hosting Notre Dame or you are. People are sold on Notre Dame. Are you. Not quite tomorrow is going to be the the big test for them on the road in Blacksburg against Virginia Tech, a team that you know, obviously they've banned. They screwed up two weeks ago, oh, being in, but they bounce back last week against Duke and you still got respect for for that. But at ball club, I think that with n. book of becoming the starter, that's probably one of the smartest moves that brand Kelly has done so far and it's probably actually going to save the I in Irish season. I saw them under Brandon wimbush losing at a minimum two games this year. So with EM book though they went tomorrow. I think they'll be favored in all the games. Moving forward. Not saying that they're, you know, go to wet. There's gonna be a tough game against Davey that at the end of the seasons on the road against the USC Trojans, I think that's going to be a challenge to going to be a team that's getting better getting more. Company with their freshman quarterback JT, dang. But with that being said, tomorrow night's game is going to be a match between a chess match between brand Kelly, how he's gonna use him, but don't forget now with wimbush thought the the, the the office, you know, I thought they were just can handcuffed. They could only do but so much. But I think with an book at the quarterback position now, Brian can go very deep into his playbook. He's probably gonna show. Some personnel groupings of formation is played that Virginia Tech have never seen off failed. And I think it's gonna come down to second-half adjustment with a Boston that defense if the how they, but to try to try to contain him book and off it desma for you go, we're we're five weeks into the season heading week, six weeks, six arrive. I want to get your thoughts on the big ten because it looks like Ohio State has a little bit of distance now with a win over Penn State and Michigan had has fought back after the Notre Dame game. Is there if you had to pick a school that would maybe the greatest challenger to Ohio State now who had to be. Well, you know, I think traditionally, you look at it. You know, people, I think counted out Michigan state because they went on the road and lost that game to stay in the hermit was group. But I still think that Michigan state has potential to be a very dangerous team. I mean, you know, they return nineteen starters. The only thing about Michigan state is that you know they, they have almost where they don't play up to their potential. And that's what happened a. m. i. opinion early the season against Arizona state. Now they've had some injuries that they've had to contend with, but that's just part of the game. But I think the fact that that they play, oh, how state at home, November tenth, that's going to be a better game that people are just because you know, for the simple fact, they always play Ohio State fairy tough. They always give them a hell of a game in this at home, so don't don't come out Sparty. They may spoil the party to before. All the student does. Deadman. Thank you for the time. We'll watch tomorrow morning. Thank you very, very much as always ate them a pleasure. You gotta Desmond our live from Dallas tomorrow you in Texas. He's pretty high on Texas there. That's a could be more interesting game than it has been. Recently. We are live in Gainsville. We already had Tim tebow and Dan Mullen on, we've bounced around various other places. Laura Rutledge will join us a little bit later, Scott stricklin as well. The f. director and many more guests as we continue the program.

Harney's Hot Topics

Sports fandom today

"Off Good afternoon, everybody. Today's topic on Hardee's Hot Topics is The insanity of being a sports fan. I'm sitting here. It's 4:30, October 10th. twenty-twenty in my beloved alma mater Florida Gators have just lost to Texas A&M Aggies on the last second field and once again, If you're a sports fan the agony of defeat sets it. And at my age I sit back and I say man. Why on Earth the top Thai any kind of significance? To the performance of eighteen to twenty two year olds. Either on the field or on the court. Or even in the classroom, right? And then I think about being a pro sports fan and I'm like why tie yourself to professional athletes whose money most interest is in the paycheck and not necessarily in the results of their Sport. And so it's it's an interest. It's a strange time right now to be a sports fan because quite honestly Sports have been, you know, really cut out at the knees the game that I was watching today. Had the lowest fan numbers in attendance since but the 70s. And and yet the maximum number you can put into a stadium now. So the the whole idea of being a sports fan, but not being able to go to the sporting events. And then the connection between sports and all the social justice messaging that is going on, right? That is really done a number to Sports and where they sit in society. I think up until the pandemic people got a great deal of enjoyment out of watching sports or following Sports whether it's college or Pro or what have you but then all of a sudden all sports stopped. And it stopped and work changed and people were stuck at home and they started to find other interests people probably reading more books. Exploring other things to to follow or be interested in whether they're movies or documentaries or podcasts or off games or whatever the case may be picking up an instrument. I think a lot of people really reverted back to before we moved and All of the distractions that we have in during the time of shutdown. It was a lot of self-reflection on what is important in life and that's what you get enjoyment out of and what you what brings you pleasure. And but it took on a whole new meaning I mean during during this time the pro football team that I grew up being a fan of, you know removed its nickname do too offensive. Being offensive the Washington football team and so, you know, it's hard to follow a team if you grew up really liking the team and then they would remove the mascot and then in the case of the of that particular team, you know, the owner is not somebody that's easy to like and home and so that impacts you generally you're tied to your alma mater is life-long because you will always have got your degree there. You may not particularly like black coach and that is there at any given time but you generally support the school because you went there. Less attachment to Pro Sports generally related to where you live or who you grew up rooting for as a result of who your family rooted for them. But I think stepping back as you get older and because of what happened this year. I think more people have looked at there. The energy that they expend in being a sports fan and realize how up and down. It can be let's just it that way. You can go through years where you're really rolling, right 2006 to 2008. For Florida Gator alums was super and basketball and football. And but that's a you know things, and go teams become good and then they go through droughts whether their schools or whether they're professionals off. But I think at the end of the day. Sports have changed in the sense of how they are perceived by the public and I I think that their influence off their influence is changing. Kids can grow up looking at sports figures as Heroes and but I don't think that that happens quite as much anymore because there's so much. social issues now that are being brought forward by athletes and the games whether they're baseball or basketball or football becoming more about the messaging and less about the sport is going to hurt the sport because people go to Sports they become sports fans so that they can focus their attention on something else and try and get enjoyment out of something else. The interesting thing is is can be painful to be a sports thing. It's probably probably much less pain. If you're not a sports fan if you really are addicted to it and it becomes part of who you are and you see that a lot. I mean you see You know grown men acting crazy right over a team over the performance of of a team over whether you score more points than the other team on any given day. So when you step back and you reflect on it. it's it's kind of bizarre the relationships that we establish with. Sports teams and what they mean to us and the attachment that we make to them. It's really a fascinating study. in social behavior because if you think about it, it is a means of getting enjoyment. It's a means of experience success Even if you're not there and you're not doing it the reward that you get from your team being successful. Is just a really interesting. phenomena Growing up as kids. becoming fans of teams because that's what you do. in learning games And those games are entertainment and those games are. The things you go to when you've been good, right? Those are the rewards that you get I'll take you to the ball game if you get your homework done. And so sports are two kids. interesting things to try to understand and to look for people to emulate to look for Heroes Right, are are athletes are often Our Heroes. I'd like every person's hero. to be their parents I think then we would be we would be in good shape. right What I find interesting was that. The athletes themselves are turning off the fans and alienating the fans and sending a message. did really? You know where you lose half of your potential audience. I mean, I've never ever understood. making Broad statements that are going to offend large masses of people when you're a business. I even thought about it back in in the days of politics when Hillary called everybody deplorables and they said well, you know, she's not going to be able to convince me to vote for bush cuz she's called me a name right? If you take a general population and say all of these people are bad. A lot of those people may not be bad. They may be good people. They may have an affiliation. With something, but it's not a total reflection of who they are people are complex individuals and so making such a broad sweeping statements about either social organizations political parties. Races all of that. It's just it's not appropriate and it's not accurate. And so I think that the biggest responsibility. Do we have? is to ourselves in to our god quite honestly. And I feel like right now we're really being tested. Really being tested because in in politics and that is bleeding heavily into sports. We're just getting further and further away. from the actual sport itself and getting into social issues That people are really trying to get away from and I think that's one of the biggest problems right now. Is that the ability of sports to entertain people is basically being Stripped Away because fans don't want they don't want to be told whether they're right or they're wrong whether they're good or they're bad whether they're worthy or their own. No. Of being able to attend their sport or watch their sport placing value on people in general or devaluing people in general home. Is a bad business model and there is no question that the National Basketball Association is suffering from its Star LeBron James becoming so politically active phone. Louis responded to the tragedies of the summer and they Incorporated it into the sport and deeply into the coverage of the sport all the messaging of the sport to where the sport itself became second second nature. And then the other thing that makes that whole situation very complicated is the relationship between the the NBA in China. And the relationship now between the United States and China and that puts the NBA in a very difficult situation. because it's almost like they're serving two masters there in the United States and yet probably their largest market is in China and their most money coming in from China for merchandise and You know everything across the board. And so the sports athletes can be critical of the United States in the United States because of the Constitution and freedom of speech. But they are not willing to be critical of China. Well, they are in the United States. Because of the importance of China to the success of their business. Now alienating your fan base. Is never a good thing to do and this situation especially where the NBA is concerned is only going to get off the larger because I think that our situation with China is isn't going anywhere. and so Sports athletes I think if they want to be. performing at their best and if they want to be at their most popular then they should stay apolitical it is too hard. to take political positions In society right now. It is a lightning rod. and the thing about it is they're both political parties. Then they don't have all the right answers. I mean Otherwise one of them would just always Dominate and dictate over the other and so we go back and forth we go back and forth and we hear all the same messages every four years. and it's like time just stand still it's all the same messaging whether it was four years ago eight years ago 12:16 to 8, you know, it's always the same. It's the economy. It's it's dead race relations. It is. Unemployment jobs the military all of those every four years, right? Same story same issues telling you they're going to do the same things, but they're going to fix all these but it never ever ever. changes significantly And we know that we're used to that and that's where our frustration comes from with the political system. It moved slowly. It's obnoxious. And people are generally tired. So I guess my my take home this afternoon. Is if if Sports want to stay? He's Central fabric of American society. They must find a way to stay out of. the political Arena the more politics bleeds into sports the less sports are going to be appealing to your average American or your average person. most people in my opinion a really really tired of politics and Right now in society. It's really hard to find. you're happy place. I guess you could say between the disruptions in social activities the ability to go out to restaurants to go to plays to go to Performing Arts events. social events people's works have been disrupted. Families have been disrupted education's have been disrupted increases in in depression increases in suicide increases in substance abuse. All of these things are occurring as a result of the pandemic that we're going through right now. And and so I look at Sports and say wow, that is an Avenue. It could help people if it wasn't involved in. What is giving people so much anxiety and that's politics and social justice? So it's tough because there is you know, there there are social justice issues that are very valid and require attention and they often get hijacked by other organizations with the don't have the same intent. So right now I think the best thing to do. is to try and get through the next month with your sanity intact and to do that cause I think we all need to cling to our faith and ask God to get us through these crazy times. and to allow us As humans across the world to allow us to reflect on what is important. And to try and do what is right. for Humanity in the eyes of God and so with that. If you're a sports fan, I hope your team won because mine did but it did give me an opportunity to opine on this month. Because if they hadn't lost I probably would still be watching another game. But that's just me. You guys have a great afternoon. Thanks for listening.
