"heisman" Discussed on You Better You Bet
"Eight and a half. Now enter the name that you're talking about. Yeah absolutely so. People who haven't followed florida the first two weeks i had a small been on. Usf last week. And i brought this up. Actually last week as just emory jones has been waiting for like a half decade. Florida starting quarterback. Because the problem is he stinks. He's actually not very good but he's waited so long and dan mullen. I think feels a sense of like right. Yeah well i mean you know. It's just like you're back up really really good quarterback and it's like well it's finally my turn except the problem is like he's actually thrown interceptions and really bad spots. They played florida. Atlantic and south florida. They haven't covered either number and everybody. Who's a florida and basically wants him to stop being the starting quarterback and a richardson. Who's a freshman who it is actually think it's not close. Is the most dynamic player in college football in an individual play basis. Right now you have a lot of impediments to him winning the award so first of all. He is not the starting quarterback he has played basically like some series and each of the first two games but in a very limited number of series already has four total touchdowns and like nine hundred zero yards so like imagine if he actually played the other eighty percent of the game. How it would be going right now. I think he has four touchdowns of over seventy yards already like. He's the player that college football is missing right now. He is also one hundred to one to win the heisman at a couple of places right now. Most places don't have enlisted because they probably don't know who he is. He's one hundred to one to win the heisman. There are lots of obstacles to him. Winning so mullen is convinced that marie jones still needs to be the starter going into the alabama game. But obviously like if we get to the alabama game. This saturday and marie jones stinks for two series. Like can he really afford to not play richardson. Like that's going to be the question so obviously impediment number one. He's still not the starter that sucks. You probably can't wait if you're not the starting quarterback impediment number two. You heard his hamstring at the end of the previous game. Now mullin gave a press conference today in which he updated his status. Basically kind of like not telling you a lot but telling you. Things are fine like he's going to get treatment. We'll see how it goes. You're not really going to learn anything. It's gamesmanship it's the week of the alabama game but like going fine. I just think there's an opportunity here. It's one hundred to one on. I think the only player outside of those three quarterbacks young corral rattler who actually could put up the stats to win the award. He's actually not even that far behind rattler. That's the crazy thing in terms of stats. And he doesn't start like it's actually insane and we have an opportunity with them playing the number one team in the country at their place even if they lose if he's awesome and they lose like the kindling is kind of lit and he's able to go on an insane run. It's actually kinda possible. So basically i'm telling you like you need one hundred to one. It's a fun flyer for a few bucks in a week. Where you really don't wanna bet on anyone to win the heisman. The game of the year game of the game of the week and the sec might offer you some chance to maybe get a narrative going here with a guy who actually has the chance to be that like dynamic athletic player that we've been missing in college football so just kind of an interesting little angle. There it was. We had into one of the bigger games. That was that was a pretty good lock messier. Pretty good day one. Miss hundred one heisman guy. I mean one of the other three is gonna win a lot but like if they don't i'm telling you this is actually the guy probably that comes out of nowhere one percenter that actually ends up winning all right three hours down one more to go here on you better you bet and at one hour and we still have left is the hour of power aka the power. Our all our vets are coming up for tonight. Ravens raiders want. Know how to bet the game. But the side. Total first-half props. We're going to tell you right after this for a full hour you better. You bet that l. costumes and markland. It's you better you bet from bacterial for the latest line movement and edges to beat the spread download the beck q. L. app today..
No. 9 Notre Dame Escapes With OT Victory Over Florida State
"Florida state. Are they better. They have to be better. They're down thirty twenty. They hang in there. George travis quarterback in a weird way they got back in this game running the football because notre dame stayed with a three down linemen formation and then florida states. Like this is what you're giving us. We're just gonna keep taking. It kept running the football down. But mackenzie milton if you remember him at. Ucf to top ten heisman finishes had played a game since november. Two thousand eighteen. He gets back in. It was the story of this game. A starts i think five or five numbers actually could have been a little bit better than that and they tie this game up and send it to overtime for state missed the kick at home. So notre dame's probably gonna pretty get no one's gonna care for state might be better. It's kind of one of those momentum losses when you've been down as florida state but you have the expectations that you should have when you're in tallahassee. But i'm not sure and again notre dame no one's gonna care because the playoff losses.

"His placed them at usc And you know triggered him to transfer which was keeping clovis Who i think has a chance to put up. Huge numbers this year for the trojans and it's hard to ever call a usc quarterback asleep or given their history with the heisman. So but i would put him somewhere in that category and then the guy mentioned that texas. If they're able to have kind of a breakthrough season beeson robinson. I think there's a lot of excitement about his potential to be a true superstar and get on that yet on that national radar so big ten. Why they don't see anybody and there's some really good running backs and really good receivers. Maybe michael annex in indiana. You can stay healthy at quarterback but there's not an obvious hyphen candidate in that conference. I love me some kid on the season adam so i certainly like that. Give us a team. Adam any conference in the country a team right now that you feel like is flying under the radar a little bit and i'm not saying that you think this team or is going to contend for the college football player for anything like that but a team that you think could exceed expectations this year. Go over their win. Total make some noise maybe get into the top twenty five. Maybe even to the top ten by seasons end. Give us an under the radar that you expect to exceed expectations this year. Yeah i imagine iowa early. I do really like iowa iowa utah two teams that you look guys like the nfl. Scouts love those programs. They draft a lot of players out of there even though they rarely ranked in the top. Ten or fifteen in recruiting. And i i think both teams have a chance to contend in their divisions and in their conferences. And you know does that mean they get in the playoffs that would certainly it would require a real job. But i love tyler. Goodson the running back in iowa. I love when they defensively. And phil parker and as i mentioned earlier their overdue to win the big ten west and utah. They won the pac twelve south. A couple of years ago wouldn't surprise me if they did it again. Especially if charlie brewer the baylor trans back in stay healthy outta history of head injuries but also started thirty nine games at baylor and ranks behind. Rg three and some of the major categories. The career passing numbers. All right out. In off. That i mean. There's there's got to be a team that you're fading here. Is there a team that you look at. That's got a lot of heat coming into the college football season that you don't like yeah you know i mean i'm trying to think of the top ten..
Eagles Rookie WR DeVonta Smith Week-to-Week Due to Knee Sprain
"Go, but I saw the report on the crawl on the NFL network. Uh, last segment before Andrew Bogus came in and repeated it in his update. Devonta Smith, the first round draft pick of the Philadelphia Eagles and ligatures Heisman Trophy winner sprained a knee in practice. Over the weekend for the Eagles and is going to miss two or three weeks, which means he should be ready to go weak one, but it means he's probably going to miss the exhibition season. Minimum two weeks and we're only a week away from legals playing their first exhibition game. We're only a couple of days away from the first exhibition game, which is the Cowboys and the Steel is in the Hall of Fame game. But if he misses the first two exhibition game, they're not going to play him in week three. I can guarantee you that Uh, if he's coming back from a knee sprain, they're not going to play him in a meaningless preseason games. So that means he's going to come into week number one cold without having played any exhibition games. And that's unfortunate because I am a big Devonta Smith fan.

Does Lebron James Deserve More MVP Awards?
"Let me tell you what. Lebron james is notorious for a other than skipping town. Go to another team other than that you know what. He's famous for taking his foot off the gas to a regular seasons when he went back to cleveland. You remember that he was like i don't mean to have the number one seed. I don't need to kill myself during the regular season. that's why he didn't win. Mvp's he undersea deserve to have more last year. Janas was the mvp unwanted convincingly and overwhelmingly. Why bernie 'cause the year before. John is wanted and lashio. Jonah's had better numbers than the year before. And the milwaukee bucks had the best record in the nba. Lebron james was really shocked because he had some false narrative going on that he was the mvp. Come on bernie has some humility. You don't have to do that. Politics will knock it you an. Mvp saying goes true. Greatness needs no self promotion. And we've talked about this probably at least once in every show we've done robin that is lebron is incredibly insecure about his legacy. If he's really the king what is he. Allow these things to get under his skin. He did it last. September when he lost out on the mvp then he says well. What really pisses me off. Allie got sixteen votes out of. That's what really pisses me up. Look if you want to continue to die in this hill lebron. You're going to continue to be seen as petty and al kuzina says the mvp's very political award. Yeah so is the mvp and major league baseball in the nfl. Probably the nhl and the heisman trophy right on down the line. Linda brown goes on to say. I don't sit around thinking about it or crying about it. That's what he just said that's all. He does time even when they won the championship last year and i gave him top credit. Lebron fan never will be better given top credit. Because the lakers are a franchise of eras you had to wilt air the jabbar air the magic the kobe and shaq era negative lebron air to win a championship and when he did the first thing he does say i want my damn respect do what he. What are you constantly begging for. What exactly is it. What happened in because you know why bernie it tells you all you need to know. He knows deep down. He's not the best player all time he knows his michael jordan. That's why it's always looking for these other things to add to his resume. That's why he he wants an mvp and you know what he sees now. He seems j. He sees james harden in brooklyn without a kevin durant and they've won fourteen out of fifteen or whatever the number is bernie and and he's looking going and when a went out to lakers stumbled he's not going to win the
Philadelphia Eagles CB Darius Slay on Matthew Stafford trade to Los Angeles Rams, what to expect from Jalen Hurts
"And all pro a pro bowler the interception leader in the entire. Nfl in the year. Two thousand seventeen now philadelphia. Eagles formerly of the lions ladies and gentlemen dairy slack pickling was good. It was good how you doing man not too shabby. I just sneezed a couple of times. Because i'm allergic to the cable companies over charging people it's unbelievable. What's going on out here. Darius i just saw you i believe you were talking about you. Stafford with the nfl films. He is leaving officially now. We'll get into you by the way i want. You know we do appreciate you coming on. We think you're baller. We'll talk about your life as well. But i would like your thoughts on something. It's happening pretty topical here. Matthew stafford is going to the los angeles rams night. The guy who wore number nine put out a nine minute video via the detroit. Lions which basically was emotional. It was a beautiful watch. Evan fox diehard lions van damme. your. I almost cry me so there was. Yeah yeah me too. I got a little. What if there's a lot of people i think are about to be introduced to matthew stafford. 'cause when your quarterback for the lines are not necessarily on prime time television all the time except for maybe thanksgiving. He's an absolute stud. And i think a lot of people are about to learn that. Do you feel the same way as somebody that was shared a field with him. For what six seven years or whatever in detroit and he got mad they gotta gotta go be unbelievable down man on the la. He's a very talented man. Smart guy he will work hard and He's a great leader. Man lead by example. He approached practice. The right way Like i never seen it. professionals is a long time and he. He's he's the man what is what do you think he's gonna do to that team. And that offense obviously he and mcveigh both guys of alpha personalities. But it seems like stafford. Also is one of the tougher quarterbacks ever to play the game i know he played with. What a broken back. Like what do you. What do you think he does instantly for that office. Up thinking to bring a lot of like know accuracy. Deep ball guy He will carry a team man go he could take any low In low you wanna give him you know. Click gays comeback. Like i said for longest man. Staffer was only missing a great defense in our Around half a great defense. Becky continue to get the ball back when i was at time. Stafford was putting up thirty points. Defense flutie given up thirty points to as well so but guy that got a defender keeping twenty point under seventeen points under yes tap. Wanna put up clear. A thirty points easily. Isn't that something that's pretty interesting is. We're talking to darius like corner for the philadelphia eagles. Now isn't that something interesting to think about in this is coming from a corner. Who's on defense. Is that a thought. Hey if we keep them under twenty points are guys going to be able to get an. Is that a goal going into each game. Hey now greenwich last shutout. We want this but the realistic like. Hey if we keep this under twenty. There's a good chance guy's gonna get that. Is that something that actually goes through your mind yet. Easily may cause you know a you see the work definitely with guys like staffer. Long enough man. He gets hot seagoing man. He's unstoppable star any kind of way Making the easiest Hardest make look easy. And you know that's always a defense go to have a team on the twenty. Most of the guys honestly as a quarterback league wants big status scoreboard up. I'm not going to ask you about the drama. That's been surrounding your team. Because there'd be incredibly unfair to you. You're not involved in that but jalen hurts appears to be the quarterback going into next year for you guys. What did you see. Jalen that makes you think like okay. This guy is going to be our guy. There was moments of greatness out there. I don't think everything was as smooth on offense as out of the ball last year as we would hope. But what do you think like philadelphia. Eagles fan should expect from jalen hurts. That you've seen behind the scenes. It's like hey this is. There's a reason this guy's going to be our guy now because he's a great leader as a young guy came to a chip on her shoulder. honestly man no disrespect carson. But he always felt like that was his spot. You know Causing the great guy but he came into the yoga came into the room into basic on. Take over to the office. You know as Why not disrespect me. Just as in i want to come compete against you to become this guy and i want to be the face at his team. He always had a ball always had drive in that kind of separate a lot of guys that you know. He was kind of just determined. You know is competitive. Why not disrespectfully. It just like mom. Okay to compete. You're the best rocky for the team. That's all were you surprised at all. Were any teammates surprise to see him. Like what's he like that from day one Well we already saw that. He had a lot of swagger about him ignored college. That's what we use as the term. Now as you see a goddess plan college boy he got a lot of sway. You carry yourself the right way and you can see in alabama and he you ever had to take no game bitch at a at a taleban. Dan going over. The numbers being heisman candidate. You know so. He had a lotta drive yet. A lot of a lot of stoudt loves to prove he. He's ready to prove it right now.

"heisman" Discussed on Behind the Bets
"So i could see it being a game in the twenty twenties and if it is You know it could end up over that mark copy. Hey we don't want to east coast bias. We got the big rivalry game. Usc ucla Look my trojans or doing well and happy all things considered. Ucla has also shown some signs of life As well the opposed to how they looked in the opener to colorado Trojans short number here you got evening analytics wise earning. I mean no outside of the obvious. And i mean the numbers would back this up which that. Ucla is playing a lot better and looks like they're finally starting to figure things out under chip kelly. They're better on both sides of the ball. And i think there are a lot of things to be excited about if you're ucla. I kind of liked them in the spot. Anyway as an underdog is obviously pressure on. Usc will see what happens with colorado the night before i believe colorado place on friday But if if colorado wins know. Usc has to win in order to To what we would expect would be to clinch the division based on the the committee rankings and to go to the actual championship game. And so i like a lot of things about the situation from the ucla perspective. Then i'll just throw in from the us perspective and and you're a fan. You get this. It can clay helton possibly make this an easy decision for usc to keep him for one more year because it seems like every season has to end with that discussion of whether clay helton should lose his job and at this point. It's a no brainer. I mean their undefeated So you would think that a loss to ucla would be what would get that conversation going again. I know that's that's not A a sound reason to decide. Ucla i have other reasons for for that But if you're looking for something else to kind of push it over the top. That's that's what i'm throwing out. There is just like it would be the most clay helton thing after this kind of start. Getting people excited to go out and lose to the bruins so I think it should be a fun. Game and I'm i'm not you know. I'm not super confident. But i if. I have to pick this game. I'm taking ucla straight out interesting Yeah usc the number fell short jammed out to me. But you're right klay health here Definitely there's you can never get involved. But they were they were dynamite against waku sunday Arbor man hey good stuff as always really appreciate your insight. You're obviously locked and loaded and it's gonna be fascinating What what i.

"heisman" Discussed on Behind the Bets
"Voters are always the most knowledgeable and true. And there's like nine hundred. It's not like you're right. They're nine hundred college. yeah college. Football playoff committee is like fifteen or thirteen. Or whatever yeah. Those people are immersed in space and watching film and talking. The nine hundred plus are just kind of clueless in some way so there's a lot of regional bias and some of them are are on a beat where they're covering one team primarily right right so that the regional voting is a thing. Okay let's talk about some match ups and you know hanging around me other gablers for steve and a company. You know a lot of the terms brad yet that we throw out with alabama and florida looming next weekend. This is what's called a look ahead spot so that factors into the number and i gotta be honest. I was all over bam last week. But i was kind of impressive pleasantly surprised by the performance of lsu I thought the offense looked better than i've seen in recent weeks. I thought finley played better than i thought he would Johnson i think is the guy that he should be playing anyway and this number feels about right given the gators could be flat. Gators could pull out guys early. What do you make of the match up between this. Lsu demon florida. This is one that on the surface i would say florida's should blow out. Lsu because we see what's happening with lsu where. I mean you saw coach out blowing up on the sideline other night. That was absolutely embarrassing in the season has just been complete debacle really from the start since the first game against mississippi state Even before that when players started to opt out and so there's just a shell of what they were last year and have been for quite a while within last week before the alabama game. Terrace marshall their best remaining receiver opted out and now Eric gilbert who is their star freshman tight end who was probably the best remaining threatened. The passing game For for last week against alabama he is just opted out for the rest of the season. So they're running out of guys throw to They haven't run the ball well all year. I i just. I don't see how they have a chance to score with florida. The only thing that would concern me with going with florida here is it. Three straight weeks against weaker competition against tennessee kentucky and vanderbilt. They've started really slow Which which was unusual. Because at first several games of the season they started really fast. There were first half team but but they've they've struggled to put these teams away until the second half in recent games. So you know. Can you trust them for the first half. I don't know it's concerning but then but then you look at the full game. And what what is it about twenty four florida's about a twenty four point favorite. I think i saw you do worry about dan. Mullen with the sec championship game. The next weekend is he going to start pulling out starters as soon as he knows that the game is hand. That's always a possibility of course opens up the back door and all that stuff and so. I don't know like like at any other point in the schedule with the sec. Championship game not looming the following week. I would say florida should win this game. Thirty something points But those are some reasons to worry about it. Did the numbers back. What i saw with. My eyes of the offense played a little bit better for the tires last week night than they normally did. Well i would say yes. And no in that they did. More against alabama's defense than alabama had allowed since october. The the caveat to that is that a whole lot of that came onto place you know. They had the the two touchdowns were both long. Plays one pass one run and outside of that after alabama. Kind of tighten things up. They didn't really have a whole lot of success. The rest of the game. So i i don't know i mean there have been times when when l. issues offense has looked okay with bentley a quarterback and then there have obviously been games where they looked pretty inept and look florida clearly is not been a good defensive team or for most of the times. They played this season. So you would expect. Lsu's going to score some. But i i. Don't i would stop short of thinking that. Lsu is starting to figure things out offensively. Especially because of what i mentioned about you know about gilbert. They're tight end and having just opted out right so with an over under of sixty eight. You're looking at the twenty two point total for the tiger. So yeah no. Thank you on that well and look along those lines. I mean florida. And i realize you do after worry about lsu completely mailing it in given everything that's happening but the last couple of games. Florida has been held under thirty. Five points by by tennessee and kentucky. Now ill tennessee and kentucky are not bad defensive teams. They're bad offensive teams. But they're not bad defensive team. So maybe maybe it's it's apples and oranges. But it just seems to me that florida's offense while they still make the highlight plays have not been as consistent or has not been as consistent in the last three games. It was earlier. So i don't know i'm wondering a little bit weather. Florida might have peaked a little bit too. Yeah i was on against..

"Actually going to stay in the The big wealthier Going a game one thirty three thirty four actually in the rotation. The next game louisiana tech. Tcu have a total of about fifty two and a half in this contest. It really looking at the louisiana tech. And i talked about how long and drawn out this college. Football season. His been dug. And if you go back to louisiana tech You could go really towards remember. They played miami florida way back when on a thursday night essentially the opening It seemed of college football If you will. So i guess was at least. It's like maybe i have it wrong but They've been playing for a long time and this is certainly not the team that they were to start campaign and they came back remember. This team did not play since halloween. They played last. What thursday night against north texas had a high scoring game. They're forty two to thirty one. But i think that was extremely misleading Louisiana tech has juggled Quarterbacks all season long have not been able to figure out their quarterback rotation still playing. Know two or three different quarterbacks at this point keep in mind. Yeah north texas pretty much. The worst defensive team the most uptempo team Very easy to score against that team. You know louisiana tech was able to keep it very vanilla essentially run the ball over and over and still score points against north texas. That is going to be way much more difficult to do against tcu The tis the season for opt-outs doug louisiana tech had a ton of offense guys. Leave those team Their best offensive. Tackle a wide receivers playmakers for this louisiana tech team again. This is not even close to the offense that they've been Throughout the season and tcu. I told you You know in their game against oklahoma state a little bit fluky Is far is a state was not even close to the same defensive team that they've been throughout all season were they're able to put up five hundred yards again. This is often kind of an inefficient offense if you will Patterson if he gets a lead certainly happy to to keep this kind of a low scoring. Run the ball. If you will so. I think louisiana tech has a really hard time scoring here I think you get a final here. Tcu thirty one six type of final score. You mentioned north texas. We'll have a play on that Total for this coming weekend in a little bit with chuck adult but e are always good to catch up with you. Man really thorough You know deep dive into the numbers and information so we're trying to find opportunities but yeah i'm with you i echo. You're sad sentiment. This late in the season feel like just getting started here. But you know what i'll take. Its cash disabled. Find some opportunities bowl games as well so and we always have the nfl fda right around the corner dogs looking looking forward to that. Never stops all right. Thanks bye good luck. You bay that man his money all right time now to bring in a gentleman you heard a couple of weeks ago right here on the behind the best podcasts. And you've heard in the past as well friend of mine chuck at. How are you sir a good. Doug how're you doing today doing well. I know you're a huge college. Hoops guy imagined. I blow up your phone quite a bit compared to most people but this time of year. But it's good to get these worlds. Overlapping and i know it's a busy time. But that's what makes this fun too and we have a few couple of college football players to go through and then we'll let you get back to hammering out all the holiday tournaments in college hoops. But i believe the last time you were on your involved with duke over and you're going to another total with duke and this blue devil team as the defense has been really really wretched. Yeah i think the. I believe the last game we did was the duke georgia tech game over and then in between that game Do played miami of florida last week and he did get shut out forty eight to nothing but i think that gives us a little value here as i am looking.

out of the lineup he's been fantastic but came back it's in his back he we need you know we know what he has done in the past he was struggling before he got hurt but none the less I mean he's he's track record speaks for itself so gentle rousing as some tough decisions to make sure I mean I serves of who your skates and new plays and hard to like dip your toe in that water like a really put him in a little bit see how it goes and then go good pull right back out I mean there are veterans are your I. money guys are you got to play on yeah I would think so yeah enter piece you know defenseman that young or whatever but and so maybe you can rotate him in a in and out in terms of the defensemen but came back and said you have him you feel like you got a player but you know John Tortorella shown he's not afraid to venture veteran if they're not one of the in his rotation and be a healthy scratch a particular I so I I it's gonna be interesting to see who decides to play each night and who are going to be the healthy scratches that are sitting and watching plus you think about it really hard for me the guy that's been skating good for you a couple three weeks now send it back to Cleveland I mean you're like this dude is been productive why do we want to do that yeah Ryan McGinnis did get sent down yesterday which you know that one made sense it what it's going to get really hairy is when you know al Oliver Bjorke strand who was playing exceptionally well before he got hurt when he comes back Alexander Texier who was playing well when he got hurt comes back pick I know what you gonna do heads we only have so many spots so but I guess it's a good problem to have put it that way as long as it doesn't upset the mo Jo exactly you know I mean that that's the thing I think as a coach you probably sweat it that's the balance you got a fine ha yeah and as a Dave that's all mention the other day we're talking about this I mean that may be the biggest one is Elvis I mean corpus Saleh was plain phenomenal so much so that the day before he got hurt he was named to the all star team but then all this is coming in two straight shutout sees what six into seven into since he took over as the starter so when corporate is back in what three weeks or whatever if Elvis continues to play like this and they're still on the heater a what do you do there it's a great question again like you said it's good problem to have yeah everybody's playing good it's a good problem to have yeah anyway other on the ice tonight seven o'clock they're going to be honoring

"OJ floated the story that one day while he was out playing golf someone walked into Rockingham and took the heisman trophy. The trophy case. What we know now is that he had handed it over to an attorney friend of his not one of the attorneys that we know from the Dream Team not one of his attorneys from the civil trial trial? Just a friend who happened to be an attorney and it was being held along with some other personal items in a condominium somewhere in southern California does the law enforcement. have any idea that this is what's happened. They do. Not they call Nicole Brown Simpson's attorney John Kelly and they say we cannot find. This heisman has been so he puts in a call to Oj's attorney and says let's cut a deal. You know I can keep this from getting into the hands of the Goldmans and being smashed with a hammer or melted down on or whatever Ron Goldman wants to do with it and we'll make sure it ends up in the hands of OJ's children that attorney says let me call Oj. It just a few minutes later he calls back and he said. OJ has a message. lesage he says. Mr Kelly has a better chance of winning the heisman. that he doesn't mean giving it to him till it happens next Mike Gilbert who coincidentally got his start as a memorabilia Rabiya expert he took a job in nineteen eighty nine as Oj. Simpson's Marketing Manager Marketing Agent Gilbert goes to Oj and says where's this thing and Oj. Jay Tells Him and Mike Gilbert retrieves it. From the attorney friend's house he has arranged to take it to the attorneys representing the plaintiffs. who were still owed all this money? And at the last second before he walks it into this office he removes the nameplate he pulls. Here's the four nails out of it. It takes the name plate new sticks in his pocket and then he turns the heisman trophy era and he says that was a last act of defiance because second only to OJ OJ maybe above OJ of the people who love this heisman trophy. More than anyone in the world was Mike Gilbert. So where does the trophy and up. The trophy ends is upon the auction block. We're thrilled off her. Two bidders viewers spectacular entertainment memorabilia. Sale sale is a nineteen. Sixty Eight heisman memorial trophy award. Initially it does not have the nameplate. Eventually Gilbert does turn that over and it goes up for auction in February of Nineteen Ninety nine in a man named Tom Craftsman from Philadelphia.

"The linemen Heisman which is not wrong considering what he's sectioned off award. The Heisman is become you had Brad Braeden, man. When the Ray guy award from Texas am for best punter all of these things down the list. But we know what we're really here for this is nice tuneup for us to all get ready stretch out and try and figure out who the hell Heisman is going to be this year. And that's where it gets really interesting. Because we know there are usually some predictors of like when you get to award season around the Oscars or things like that. You're our friend, Ed and Virk talk who you guys yesterday on golick window on the Sinophile podcast. You can look at some of the other award shows leading up based on how people vote in the things that happen. You can kind of get a good idea of who's gonna take home. The hardware. Well last night we had a split that makes predicting that feel damn near impossible. So for the sixth time in the past fifteen seasons different quarterbacks took home the Maxwell award and the Davey O'Brien award. Now, the Maxwell award goes to the player of the year. The Davey O'Brien war goes to the best quarterback of the year to a tongue vi- Loa to comb the Maxwell award for player of the year while Cuyler Murray took home the Davey O'Brien award. And lest you think oh, well, Mike. To a tongue of I also won the Walter camp player the year ward earlier in the day. Surely, this must Hilton his favor. Shirley, this must be of great benefit to him when it comes to this. Yes. I am wear. But earlier in the day Kyle also won the AP player of the year as voted on by the media. And so now, we've got a confusing situation. Because as I said this is now the six time in the last fifteen seasons that we've had different quarterbacks. Take home the Maxwell and the Davey O'Brien in four of the previous five times the Heisman winner went to the Davey O'Brien award winner. Which would by the way, Tilton favor of Kyla Murray for anyone keeping track at home. However, only five Heisman winners have failed to win AP player of the year since nineteen ninety eight..

"But it was this week twenty five years ago that you were being awarded with so many different accolades and you were getting ready for the Heisman Trophy ceremony. What was that like? Well, definitely a great experience coming from Thomas who are Georgia, which is a small town in New York. So I open it for me. But it was great because I got a chance to really enjoy that moment with my parents, and my siblings and a lot about fan of the numbers with there as well. And to be able to win to husband definitely started put me up a name more. So they global scale national scale out at your house trophy winner. So I knew my life would say a little bit. But I didn't know, you know, how much you would change. But it's been you know, it's been great to be a part of Haase and family to be able to go back and see the guys each and every year is always a great treat as well. And to be back in New York, which you one by one of the biggest margins ever. It was the third largest so when that week, I know you probably could we're being told what's the situation was, but did you feel pretty comfortable or confident or did you just say I better I want to hear my name before I believe I'm about to become the Heisman winner. Well, I'm about being confident. But you know, I was grateful to have it up to her to beat her be wanted a guy that you know. There's always, you know, you're hoping that your day was called. And that's what I was hoping hoping that it was called. And what it was called? You know, it was great for that opportunity to be named the Heisman. And I still just couldn't believe that a small got from a small town. Tell us view Georgia, you know, winning the Heisman Trophy. But it was great. No, not just for me. But for my town that I that I grew up in and they very much appreciate it. Then I date as well. So that was a big week for you being New York course, you ended up playing for the Knicks for so many years. I guess you got used to the Big Apple. Well, you know that people go around and speak that you know, if you ever want to want something to have happened just to God that. This is what I don't want to because I told them that. I that. I was no way that I could ever live in New York out New York from the Heisman because of all how fast fast paced, and you know, I thought people rou because they didn't speak back to you. And lo and behold what he was six months. You know, it was. In New York, not just in New York, but make a living in New York. So that was my what about God stores? That's a great story of as you reflect back on your life. I'm really interested. Because now you now you coach what do your players know about you, certainly they know you're their coach. But. Relate to us how they view Charlie ward. We we know you we we followed you every step of the way twenty five years ago, and ultimately in the NBA, but what what's it like to communicate with with young people today. Now, you're the adult in the room so to speak. It's I mean it helps when you have. Helps when you have the recognition per se. And so, you know, of course, they have Google now a lot of kids Google highlights or whatever it is that they wanted to to get get information on u. And so that helps you know, when you're telling them something, they understand and know that you're not just, you know, talking off the cuff that you've had experience, and and the things that they're desiring. And it does give you credibility to be able to share with them your story per se because saying that your share with them, you know, pretty much lifted all whether being a superstar on the team to guy, you know, that's struggling to get off the bench. And so, you know, I've had all those moments and a lot of guys go through those of all this, and I just have to share with them. You know, there's a life lessons and everything it's so we just have to continue to give ourselves the best opportunities with with a great attitude, regardless of what situation looks like..

"We really are thinking of you. And I know a lot of prayers will. Be sent your way. Thanks a lot. Duane is up next in Oklahoma. Hey, dwayne. Right in heart, doesn't it? It really. Wow, it's hard to follow that. But if I was going to call it tell you, I'm I live out here in Oklahoma. And I'm so sick of hearing about Oklahoma is overrated offense. Everyone knows Oklahoma doesn't have a defense. But the thing is that no one in the big twelve has a defense. They're all just about equal. And that's how Kylie Murray has put up all his spectacular numbers is because we got the week after week. They're playing another big twelve defense. That is just sorry. And it's a it's a real. It's a it's a new Dwayne. I'm glad you made that point. Yeah. I I think collar is going to steal the the Heisman from two and you're going to hear a lot of numbers. But think about what to to went up against LSU, Mississippi State, Auburn other SEC mean an EMS defense. Of course, you're right. I mean, the beat goes on and the collar Murray played good defense all year. No, not one not one. I think the toughest defense. They played was army. That'd be right. And he had and by the way, he I saw the fourth quarter of that game. He had a miserable game. I know. I know I think it's a damn shame that, you know, Alabama could have had their first quarterback Heisman winner, and he's totally deserving the award, and he's not going to get it. Because of the sorry defenses in the Victoria. And I guarantee you Alabama will mop the floor with Oklahoma. I promise you, it'll it'll be more than spread. Listen, I I was with Steven Naismith earlier today on his show and he picked Alabama to win by forty. I wouldn't shock me in the least way would not. I mean you look at the Texas game. The the the first Texas game it Oklahoma played can show, you how horrible the defenses are out there. Oh goal was scored twenty eight points. I think in the you know, in just a matter of just boom boom, boom right down the field. No defense whatsoever. And they they've never seen anything like what they're going to encounter with Alabama. It'll be it'll be laughable. They'll be embarrassed. If they're even made it to the playoff. Well. It's a great show. Paul. Thank you taking my call. Thank you very much. Andy.
