"Gentleman. I have picked the brain of many times. Jay romano pro. Better here in las vegas good to be with you. Thanks for having me all right well. We finally broke the seal. Got you on the pod. And i think it's a perfect situation. Do college win. Totals because the board has been hit pretty hard. But there's still a lot of opportunities out there and we're we're obviously. The calendars turned to mid august. We are ready to go Football season's right around the corner. So i know there's a lot of plays you like a little bit off the grid but i want to start the marquee ones and it's the one that's my favorite of a mall and i've talked about it a few times on daily wager. I believe i've even mentioned it here on the podcast but i am very very big on auburn under seven now the juices move some shops or six and a half. If you want to go six plus money that's fine. It's just so tough when you get the push at seven so i prefer the seven with the juice and it all comes down to the schedule. Not the only reason but the schedules really really difficult. And you've got bama. You got an got georgia. I don't think there's any chance auburn win those games. I know rivalry game and war eagle and all that stuff with the with the iron bowl but it's just auburn is rebuilding. And they have a new coach bryan. Hartson coming in from boise. State and bonex is just not materialize into the quarterback that everyone thought he would be. Maybe a new oc. Mike bobo will unlock. I'll just kind of have to see it to believe it. So in addition to obama. Georgia am there at lsu. They have all miss at home. You know at arkansas. And then there's there's this tough spots here and it's a team that's going to be lacking on offense defense. They're calling card. So i think i don't see how they go eight and four to lose this play. Well i i would definitely recommend Playing the seven laying the juice in this situation. I almost always gonna lay the juice versus taking maybe plus one ten plus one twenty on the under. It's definitely worth the extra half a game. I'm actually high on auburn this year. However i completely agree with you. The schedule is brutal. There's just no breeders for them. I think bonex. Could you know have an improvement. This year they can play well. It's just there's just not enough wings on the schedule. It really looks like they're ceiling is seven. It's just you know when you like. You said when you go to texas. Am have to play alabama lsu home against georgia. And then at penn state week three. It's just you forgot about the penn state game. I'm glad you mentioned that. Cause at the white out game in happy valley. yeah. And i'm looking headlines there between four and a half and seven and a half point underdogs So they can exceed expectations and still not go over this win total. Yeah no. it's a lot to ask. It's certainly a lot to ask but you're so you're high on wsb. Maybe as a dog and a lot of spots throughout the season. So i know you have some places. Well but notre dame under nine talk about not soft spots on the schedule that that's certainly stands out where you'll get the irish yet. The with them again is scheduled schedule. Schedule you know. I know there are top ten ranked team coming into the season but it is just absolutely unforgiving. Weakened weak outs starting at florida state where they opened about ten and a half eleven point favorites. It's down to seven and a half eight. That's not gonna be an easy task. Going into dough campbell on a standalone game in a national televised audience. Week one with a new quarterback Jet cohn was name started earlier this week. With up and down. Wisconsin played well and times. But we'll we'll have to see how he jumped there Notre dame is starting four new offensive lineman. They returned to starters on offense. It's it's a little early in the season For that type of test. So not only would. I looked afford a states Plus the points week one just a little bonus pick right there but the under nine for the season feels like a pretty safe option

Stephen .M. Smith and the Iron Bowl
"Stephen smith welcome back from touchdown. Alabama stephen amit always good to see you and great to have you on the program. So it's the week of the iron bowl you've been high on the tide. Since the first time we talked during the summer. let's start with mag jones because you told us. He was different than that was before the public. In the heisman voters fell in love with him. Absolutely i mean. The young man has been battle tested poise and career. I remember him in the us. Freshmen in two thousand seventeen with the scout team out there throwing bombs and of course coach saban told him stop throwing the ball deep all the time. King looks at cope sabres coach. Tell your defense a check me there so you got a guy with that type about and that type of confidence even check his own coach. Nick sabin that you got yourself a quarterback that can really do some special things. So i knew from mack. Jones the freshman that he was poised to this moment but also seeing the growth that he's made targeted stephen m. smith who stephen m. seems like every every aspect of alabama has gotten better the one that has surprised when people is the is the defense. Because after the ole miss game i i wasn't sure that p golden should be buying green bananas. But what's happened on that side of the ball. The main thing is coke. Sabin and pete goading have done a great job. Simplifying things on times player stink too much. You think about my job and is my teammate. Doing his job. It's the guy in front of me. The guy behind me the guy next to me doing their job. And when you're thinking about so many things of your job is and training your is to be district where confusion comes in so nick. Saban has always been one to say. Do your job and the rest will take care of itself. So she and goading been a great june above of simplifying. The game plan players have done their job. You're seeing more pressure on defense guys stopping the run better. More turnovers created a the big thing here. Paul is essentially omits game. You've looked eleven. Shutout quarters football alabama including a complete game shutout of mississippi state and the team is getting off the theater on third down so a better job of simplifying the game plan and players. You know being concerned about doing their job correctly. It's interesting. we haven't really heard much in the aftermath of jason water when he went down some of the pundits. I remember somebody. Espn said alabama was done. They had no chance of winning the national championship. How has that been dealt with on the team. Because it doesn't seem like and i realized alabama has played a top five team Yet they will seem like they've done quite well without him. I remember a conversation. I had with john. Michie paul about you know. How do you feel. Avoid behind by waddell. He's a one type player. Barry explosive guy would. He got hurt against the volunteers. You heard coach. Sabe say you know. I hurt for college football. Not the fact that saving hearts for alabama. I'm sure he pretty much does but he hurts for college. Football due to people enjoy seeing james waddell on the field. He's fast he's a bottle he's gone. He's energetic he's explosive. He's highly entertaining. Obama has found ways to work. Around this. you've seen slade. Boden return be on kickoffs. Of course he got a twisted ankle against kentucky alabama monitoring jam all week and practice. He should be able to go this week. But we'll see what happens We have seen devante. Smith retiring ponts against kentucky patrick satanic. A second has also field in that role a little bit so save has put he and different guys and that special teams role to try to you know. Fill that void but it's worked out for the most part. It is difficult trying to find that guy that can do know what j. waddell does

College football rankings: Who will be #5?
"We know one thing's going to be different this year the playoff it doesn't look like Alabama is going to get there how curious are you to see who the number five team is going to be in the rankings when they come out tomorrow night I I can't imagine it being anybody but you tell at this point I guess Oklahoma does have a have a chance that I think more importantly it'll be interesting to see where Baylor is were you taught is and and then where you know because those those are the games to get even Oregon is going to come down to could you give more credit to by winning their conference whether it is Oklahoma Baylor winner or the Utah Oregon winner if you don't know if Oklahoma when those games talking to Joey Galloway was Michelle pens or performance sign enjoys doing at that spot is going to cite a lot going for for that fourteen but right now there seems to be such a clear weight class difference at one through three when we talk about is your heiau state and Clemson if you had to you know put any meaningful amount of money on it right now who do you think of those three is actually the best on the field regardless of what the resume looks like I would be afraid to put any amount of money on any of them on a deadly all three teams on a given day could be each other because they are that talented I think I think it took awhile for people to get back to respecting Clinton you can go through time frame and in a season where they don't look great and it makes people nervous they sort of jump off board but if you've watched Clinton on film all fees long even even when they did have a one point loss the north I would they didn't have a great day there are extremely talented football team that has been there and done and that is the advantage that Clinton has over LSU over Ohio state they've been in the past for five years so they they what to expect and what happens when you get in the playoffs but as far as from my account definitely things on the field it will be hard to pick one over the other two so Joey you had mentioned that you think you tell still be number five so if that's the case or by the Oklahoma six and Baylor seven with organ probably in their fourteen may be moving up to twelve so still outside the top ten so for Utah to make it into the final four should Georgia lose is that mean this is going to come down to style points to the committee yeah I think so and I think in a season where of the committee had said that eyeball test matters because if if we wanted to just go by that metric of this thing then there is no way that that was you would still be number one because from metric standpoint the metrics are still LSU's favor over high speed but they took a high sticking jumped Ellis you last week even before Ohio state beat Michigan I took a Baylor team and dump them five spot in beating up on right ten fifteen I don't believe the committee is saying that are both cast in BC then is very important and so you talk going to have to make a big statement when they play organ to really take the cake because many times they Hey even the the Oklahoma when was I better win at the end we think you talk the better team sorry Joey Galloway with us on the shell pens performance line here I'm going to win go on the field as we can we know is rivalry week and Ohio state Michigan played a game that was lopsided yet again after Jim Harbaugh was sort of getting into it with the media here at where are we at with the state of Jim Harbaugh in this Michigan program is it fair to judge him as harshly as some want to on his record against his rival alone I think it's fair to judge him on his record and his record has been a good anybody the culture that Michigan or at Ohio state you will be judged on what you do in game against Michigan Ohio state did the bigger gains the the Michigan state and state that's just the way it goes now the interesting question at the end about the talent gap there is a clear talent gap but I also understand it closer about can't come out and say Hey there there's a big talent gap here he's trying to close that gap the charter proved get players in there and he also had to get his players to believe that they can win so you can't come out later the talent that anybody's watch this game past five years there is a clear talent gap it would take almost a a a collapse by Ohio state moved to Michigan in these past few years they just haven't done that so Joey Galloway with this miss can find himself in a tough spot right because obviously Jim Harbaugh has brought things back to the university that weren't there before he got there but V. Hartle and in many people's minds the only game that matters is Ohio state and he's gone were no Michigan coach has ever been allowed to go over four oh one five to start his career any other Michigan coach has come close to that has been fired well before they got to on five so one of the do I think it comes down to what what's important to you if your mission your guide to making a decision is it important to you that mission is now back on the national scene and back to eighteen they can get you nine ten one in a season even if they do lose to Ohio state are there still in that conversation they're still talked about as much as any team out there or are you in in the only team that if I hate we have to win the Lima Ohio state we have to win the big ten we have to compete for a national championship I would I would assume that that is the thinking of Michigan because of their program because of their history because of where they've been they've won national champions before thank you would think that they will be in the mindset of we want to compete for the big ten championship we want to get to the player who won have kept what it all and if you're in that mindset I can't imagine how long you stay down this path now I'm not saying that I believe are about to be fired after this season but I do believe they will take a long hard look at what their options are because again they're they're not close right now to were high status Joey Galloway joining us enjoy Alabama loses the iron bowl they're out of the playoffs for the first time we know they'll lose their share of players to the draft including a two of the quarterback as well and so mac Jones can come back to his brother was a a freshman there as well how do you see this team coming back I've always said nobody paid any three better than Alabama it makes me angry for a season and I am looking forward to seeing what they do that the the now not just to a you wonder what's going to happen your magic they're gonna lose a couple the receivers you know in in that group of men that that might be the best able receivers we see at one school with with when you add in I went to with healthy it is almost disappointing to think that I think with that much talent dealt with the injury you've dealt with situations that won't allow them to get in because they may have been monumental they think about the amount of players that would have been in this year's playoffs if you throw Alabama and that makes I think that was the fun part of looking at it and so you look at fifteen now and you know they recruit well they're gonna lose two or loosen the from the receivers there of course moved to be effective that one thing we do know about Alabama by makes even he's been able to reload a year after year after year as well as anybody has ever done it and so it usually fun to watch how Alabama comes back after having a disappointing season they will be they will be good next year it'll be interesting to see how

Game to beware for each Top 25 college football team
"When, when you get to the iron bowl, one of the concerns that Nick savings, always had is that when Alabama gets to that Auburn game those, though the kids now don't realize what a huge rivalry it is. They think LSU's the team they have to be and the truth of it is, is that the iron bowl means more to more people in this country than any other game but sometimes these players come from other parts of the country, and they don't grasp that until they get into well because as. A California guy. If you ask me, I mean, I know the iron bowl of big deal. But what's the Alabama biggest game every year I back well LSU, you know, always the you know, five o'clock game on ESPN is, is a big deal. You know, it always feels the biggest because it usually has national championship implications to not that the honorable the iron bowl doesn't, but the LSU game, maybe a little more sexy, at least for us outsiders. Feels like yeah. You know, LSU, obviously, for a good stretch of time there has been, you know the game. In other words, the winner that game had a chance to go onto the BCS. Yeah. Four perhaps title game, which would lead to the playoff. So that's kinda first big hurdle for both schools. And then, you know, for Alabama when they if they clear LSU then attention turns to
The weird twist in the Michigan-Ohio State rivalry
"He is Marty Smith who spent most of the year in Alabama or so it seems but today he is in Columbus Ohio getting ready for the big game up there mardi thanks for. Joining us set the scene for us in Ohio. We know Apollo good evening. Yeah. You're right. I think I had five Alabama games this year. Maybe six I don't know most of them. But I'm up in Columbus right now. It's getting cold outside. It's going to be nasty and rainy tomorrow, and we're in the lobby here at the Woody Hayes athletic center, and they are getting ready, man. It's it's fun to talk to the coaches and the players about this rivalry, you know, growing up in the south as I did. And you know, you've lived there your whole life as well. We look at at the iron bowl, which you guys are at and we all know about Janki Red Sox and all of those great rivalries. But this one's extremely special. It's kind of boring off of respectful hate for one another. They don't hate the man, but they hate the establishment on the other side of the football. And of course, it was all born in a fight over Toledo all those years ago. So when you're fighting over Toledo brother, it makes for a hell of a good rivalry. I was reading about that today coming over here. Toledo for those who don't know is fairly close to the Michigan line. It's also where urban Meyer in Jim Harbaugh were both born same hospital about seven months apart. And and it's pretty amazing Marty how a city in Ohio could be is amazing right in the middle of it. All. Is what blows my mind is what you just said. It's funny. I wrote an essay kind of really chronicling the hatred between the schools and the foundation of the rivalry and the evolution of the rivalry with both sham Boeckler and Woody Hayes in the ten year war and then the two thousand six game the game of the century on and on. And there's so many indelible moments any whether it's Desmond our boy flashing the flesh and the I'm actually staying in the Ohio State lobby right now. Maybe I shouldn't be mentioning those things or Charles Woodson running punts back and all those amazing moments, and I was floored when I learned that urban and horrible we're both from Toledo born into Lido. And then I was even further shocked by the fact that it was the same

"Of course, here to Greg burns as we get ready for the iron bowl you've been involved in some big robberies. You were the director at Mississippi State. And we that robbery seems to go to a different level every year. I don't know if it's the right direction. You certainly been you went to Arizona state. You were at Arizona. That's a pretty heated rivalry. But. This probably to me. And I want your thoughts. It seems like while the the bitterness is still ingrained in history. Maybe it's not quite as personalized as it used to be is that is that a fair analysis. Well, I I'm not sure I think one of the great things about college sports is the rivalry in having fun with that having that be a focus of what you're doing as a program to beach arrival on on an annual basis, obviously on the grid. Iron is really important. You want to do it across the board and all your sports that you compete in. I think what what Alabama and Auburn represent is is a great rivalry within college athletics. And certainly one of the best ones out there, and whatever we can do to celebrate that to bring people together we want to do it in the right manner though with class and dignity as we approach it. But at the same time too, it's important. And and I think it was no, absolutely. And. And so anything we can do to to highlight that in the right way, we want to make sure we're I guess where I'm going here is it Nick Sabin. I think you could say the same thing about the Auburn people. They maybe because of certain instances that have occurred. It seems like he has tried to keep all robberies at a at a higher level than than maybe we see it other places. Yeah. I mean, he talked about it publicly, and I know with the team that saying this if you're from Alabama this this means a ton. And it's it's really important that we do everything we can this week in preparation for it to put our program and the best possible as you go through that process in preparation to make sure that we are prepared.

I think it's going to be twenty four point Irish win this. This is going to be fascinating to see what happens after this game. They'll be more intrigue after this game during this game. Because after the game it's all going to swell around. What's happened with Klay Hilton first of all before we leave to the next one? There was those reports out there about James Franklin possibly being a name for USC. How do you like that? I don't like if if it at all.

And I think what tasha poi- has done with a brand new secondary. And losing so many great leaders from a year ago. They have come a long way from Louisville to where they are getting ready for the iron bowl, obviously those game raps and just an understanding of their sign mints with their there. When you face Gus malzahn, uptempo offense, if they're able to get some first downs, and you've witnessed this and they're able to create a rhythm. They're able to kind of get you on your heels and with all the jet sweep motion pre snap movement. They can affect your eyes, and they can affect the and all of a sudden you bust in assignment, which has been somewhat of an issue with this this Bama defense this year you bust in assignment. And next thing. You know, you got to you got an H back. That's live out. Nobody saw him play action fake the jet sweep and there's a guy out in the flat. Nobody picked up and they dump it to him and he picks up twenty five yards. It's gonna take moments like that for all. I think to get traction. They're gonna stems going to have to have time. But they're gonna have to come up with fooling Alabama, kind of smoking Miers lot of tempo. A lot of distractions with the pre snap movement and hope that affects the communication about Obama. And that they they've bussed coverage three or four times when they do they gotta make big plays. And they got a score on that that that that to me is the only way I can envision them staying in this football game. The other thing is I think Alabama's been dealing with some guys that have been dinged up at receiver. They, of course with two and Jalen I think now they're starting to get healthy. And I think that offense that that used to be like a video game until the Mississippi State and LSU game. I think that Auburn is going to be very. Challenged when when Bama gets into their four wide receivers said Georgia punished Auburn on those nickel Bax safeties trying to cover those inside receivers would not surprise me at all to see to try to make that same thing happen attack. The man the man that all plays by going after the linebackers and going after those Nickelback so bam is going to win the game. But Gus malzahn, man, he saves a few wrinkles for this game. And I wouldn't be surprised if if they get a few busted coverages and make a few big plays in the past game. I know you're heading out the Coliseum. I forgave. They may not be the most exciting game of the week in college. Same after last night. But it is a big game for Notre Dame. If they can get over this final hurdle. Your thoughts. Yeah. I mean, Brian Kelly. Oh, yes. Do is go out to the Coliseum where we all watched. Probably most of us watch that that chiefs game against the Rams when incredible game that same stadium walk into that locker room visiting lock room.

You know, you're in the playoff with our ultimate goal of trying to chase down a championship. And and give ourselves a chance. No. We don't need help. We don't need the committee.

"iron bowl" Discussed on Behind the Bets
"And I'm once again in agreement with you on this one Doug in in fact, last week. I sorta I leaned with USC over UCLA thought they had to play the game. And then just the ball run down their throats shockingly three hundred thirteen yards rushing six point zero yards per carrying. It just sets it up for Dexter Williams. I mean this guy. Remember miss the first four games for Notre Dame since he's come back. He's been electric running back. They've got Ian book back now as well. He missed the Florida state game. But look good last week against Syracuse hitting twenty three thirty eight for two hundred ninety two yards and the Irish in my mind are complete team. They've got a good special teams. They can run the football averaging four point six yards per carry. They throw the football. Well, they're hitting sixty six percent. And it got dynamic defense. Hold opponent ninety years below their season. Average the only allow fifty three percent completions. They'll allow three point seven yards per carry. We saw matched up against the Pac twelve team earlier this year and Stanford and then just pretty much steamrolled Stanford at five hundred fifty to two Twenty-nine yardage and they've had games like that where the rolling those rivalry game. So I have Notre Dame's full attention for this. And just frankly with USC a team that's under received. In fact, you know, I do another podcast here on ESPN and match through last week as an example, I had five plays on that one went four and one by one loss was US CMS. Pointed out. Why are you doing better on their pot and not ours? That's a great question dog. It's it's a little frustrating that 'cause I prefer to go five with my buddy. Doug, so sorry about that. But he threw out. He goes that's a third time. You've used USC, Phil. And I'm like, well, they're gonna do at this time. No, they're not they're they're done. They're cook. They lost their me three times in the last four weeks. I'm done using USC. They're giving out a lot of yards per carry on defense as of late if they allow two hundred yards rushing to Utah to eighty three days on a state and offensively while they've got weapons. I mean said where's dangerous Michael Pittman and Saint Brown receiver a couple of very dangerous? Guys. JT Daniels is a guy who I think three years from now is going to be contending for the Heisman. But this year thirteen touchdowns ten interceptions taken out of very good defense. So I think overall you've got a much better team playing with lot better as you mentioned. You don't know what's going on in the US you locker room right now. But rumors swirling, you know, who's going to be the next day. Coach what's going to happen is coach L, maybe let go so. I don't think the crowds going to be that much. I mean the USC UCLA game. I think had the lowest attendance since nineteen fifty six and granted that was UCLA. But that just goes to show you the apathy that's going on right now out there, and I like Notre Dame to go out there and crush him. So I agree with you there. At no point in the game. Will I feel comfortable with USC unless they're winning like that's the thing. Even if it's like a three point lead for the Irish, I'm like this the beatdown coming USC is not together for solid quarters in one game. I thought the Stanford game was like their best game. Yeah. And on the road, you know, all that stuff. They played tough. Right. And if not for minus three and turnovers, I mean, they had a shot at the twenty two thirteen I down ratio. Interesting. All right. What about some other rivalry? Let's go the iron bowl Auburn Alabama. The number seems about right twenty four. Auburn doesn't look incompetent on offense as it has earlier this year and twenty four is a tough one to lay in that..

Do you know the Michigan has not one in Columbus since two thousand that Ohio State has won thirteen of the last fourteen games with Michigan? Does that not factor in the line? Or is it a factor? I well, first of all the the line few weeks ago. I think everybody was curious to see what it would be and it stayed pretty much the same Michigan on the look at headline was like four two weeks ago. I thought they might go higher after Ohio State marijuana. They played at Maryland. Ohio state. Tony is fraudulent. They been terrible defense the quarterbacks still isn't there? Quite yet.

"They they live in some fantasy world where their team plays legitimately. No one. I think they played my high school team two weeks ago. It's it's unreal. Anytime. Their biggest arguments went and beat Auburn last year the peach bowl, or whatever it was that they played them in Auburn team that came off of winning the iron bowl and then blowing it in the SEC title game. Like Auburn had a prime position to get into the college for a playoff they blow. It do. You think how much do you think those players actually cared when they were leading up to that game maybe on game day and after the game ended they cared more because they had lost UCF. But in their heads preparing for that game. I just don't see I don't think Auburn was up for that game. As UCF would like, you to believe, I'll tell you. I really don't wanna watch another Alabama Clemson championship. I'm just I'm not feeling it. I mean that last game they played was thrilling, it was it's fun. But it's been there done that. Let's see something else. I wanna see this. I'm interested in this Georgia team. I really am. I know some some SaaS got happened for them to get there. But maybe it's a little bit tough for you as star youngster jus-. Field was once a Penn State, recruit, maybe the top player in the country this year and guy who looks like he could be a number one pick in the NFL draft and a couple years. But man, he's talented that whole team is talented that'd be a fun game. But two friends, I guess I thought you were going to tear up. I thought you were going to bring up the fact that the entree swift spent four years absolutely demolishing, my high school team before going on to superstardom Georgia.

"You don't need to use this as an opportunity to get better for the iron bowl for the SEC championship. But they're not all quarterbacks. They're not all the guy that has made your offense on pace to set records at Alabama. And he's got an injury. And you know, I know Jalen hurts is also banged up. But you're going to beat the citadel with anyone at quarterback this week. And that's why it'd be incredibly conscious if not completely bench to this week. If he takes a hit against citadel offensive law has big issues for Alabama Ivan unless Florida state of Virginia Tech each win their final two games. They're going to fail. The qualify for a bowl game marks an end to the longest active bowl streaks, regardless of what the NCWA said blank. We'll get back to national prominence more quickly. Mom jeans. That's good. Jay, we'll get back to national prominence before Florida's state or Virginia Tech. I'm jeans does have a good recruiting base. Yeah. There's no doubt about that. Wow. You know, stock buying for Florida state of Virginia Tech at this point. Well, I did go for these laugh. But I I I would say a those two I I like Virginia Tech's chances better. I just think Florida state isn't such complete disarray. And we're all well, I won't speak for everyone. I'm absolutely stunned because there's nothing in Willie Taggart's career resume that would show that you know, he would have this kind of season, and they're just not playing well looking like their coach will Florida state thirty six straight years Virginia Tech twenty five straight years. Third longest Georgia at twenty one atom outside of the three ranked matchups. Syracuse Notre Dame Iowa State, Texas UCF cincy the game. Most looking forward to it. Well, I think if in doubt recently guys you pick a big twelve game that league has provided way more drama than the four other leagues combined with the quality of games. So I'm gonna go big twelve. I'm gonna go West Virginia and Oklahoma state Dane, the Hoeger sitting going back to Stillwater Oklahoma state's been like with the weirdest team in the country that figure out I think Mike Gundy's just, you know, saying whatever he wants to say before and after games, they're just an odd team. So west Virginia's obviously got much more to play for. But I could see Oklahoma state winning. I know Jake Trotter pick them I think they're ditch pick them to win. I picked West Virginia but not overly confident and I'm excited to see that matchup in Stillwater. I'm looking forward to seeing Daniel Jones against Clemson see how he can do mobile quarterback Pitt by the way can clinch the coastal with a win against Wake Forest or Virginia loss. I agree with you though, Adam very much looking forward to seeing how Mike Gundy's group of millennials handle adversity in that game. No flakes. Sure. Ivan Notre Dame is deviating from their usual uniform and wearing pinstripes for their shamrock series game against Syracuse. Matt navy helmets in New York Yankee pin stretch. I think this idea is. The mom jeans of uniform. Keep using me. They remind me of one of those things that you buy and in the minute, you leave the store, and you put it on you go. What what was I think? But you know, the idea was good the execution was good. But the the look is just not quite Notre Dame more than Josh. Syracuse beats Notre Dame this weekend. I will continue to say that they had less than a fifty percent chance to win every game for as long as I shall look. Upgraded at this week though. He did. Yeah. Brought it up to forty percent. Yeah. Jesse? Half-full at forty percent. Adam blank will be the head coach at USC week one next season. Toughest question here. Matt I would still say clay Helton.

"First one is from Randy Truitt at our KT forty eight, twenty nine. He says, I was discussing this with my son on the way home last night. Let's say there's important Gordon. Yes, I couldn't left that out. Let's say there's a three way scenario of eleven and one teams were Auburn, beats Georgia. In the regular season. Lewd is the iron bowl, Georgia beats Bama in the SEC championship game who gets in and does it jump start playoff expansion talks who's better answer this question than Heather. Did it. Oh, gosh. Bill Hancock, maybe. Look, I Don hit. This is really, really difficult, and I hope that it plays out because this would be so fun to watch this electric committee sweat over this. So my initial thought is that Georgia and Alabama would get in just because of how good Alabama has looked. But here's the thing, Auburn, beat Washington and Alabama's best win. Non-conference could be against a Louisville team. That is, as we sit here today, probably gonna remain unranked for the rest of the season. And if they have that win over Washington, Washington wins the Pac twelve and they have the head to head win over Georgia. I don't see how well that's that's Turkey. It could be Auburn and Georgia. It could be three SEC teams in it could be three SEC teams and there's more that out, right? Like if you have Oklahoma playing well. Washington wins out. And then I mean, that's the crazy part of your. We talked so much about big ten teams kinda cannibalize each other, but that would this is the exact scenario that I don't know if the SEC offices in Birmingham would love or they would hate simply for the fact of who are you taking at that point?.

Thrilling finish this, of course, inspired by Mike wilbon, leaving the cubs game before David bodies grand slam walk off, but was one of the worst games though, could have been the iron bowl, like if you left the iron bowl, turn that field goal, that would be one that you'd be like. I cannot believe I missed that. Especially if you're an Auburn fan, there's there's a fair amount of them that I'm sure if you've just went back and looked at some of the biggest comebacks ever. That would be. Those would be the games where you had the most people calling in to say, I was at that one. Whoops. And the Kirk Gibson one, of course, is one of the biggest ones, but while I've got you here. Sean because it's is afraid of me now and rightfully so he refuses to make any bets with me because he, I believe, has been told by his wife. He can't afford to lose any more even though is not yet paid a single cent to get back to me. He is delinquent on all of the bets that we have made all of which he has lost. So I've decided since you're fresh meat, I'll force you to bet with me and the the lucky thing for you is, is that these are season-long NFL bets, so you won't have to pay off until the end of the season. You can start saving. Now. I would just start a piggy Bank. We will have to figure out a what exactly we're betting. So we'll take some suggestions from you guys and we'll try to figure out what would make for a good bet. I've already gotten a tire. I'm going to bet here's what I put on. I'll bet that I can get Jason Fitz to play the fiddle for you. I don't need Jason Vince. I've heard Jason, Vince playing the fiddle for me and he he already is. Interest in the CAF about what four dollars and fifty cents for the finest. But it's good food. It is good food, but you're gonna have to pony up more than that. You're already starting to sound like just as much of a chicken. You know what ever this club down the street cloth down the street. Not my favorite now. My favorite, we're going. We're going anywhere. We're going all the way to west art cool somewhere go was we'll go west Hartford, and there's a good taco place there. That's actually right and the good news you good news for you is that the likelihood of us both being in Bristol at the same time where you have to pay up on this very slim, very slim, but I think. Wiz and me a gift card, and then I'm going to use it at west done. All right. That's the bet dinner on the line as we go through some of these NFL bats, and these are sort of inspired by our buddy Bill barn. Wells prop bet podcast lately on the Bill Barnwell podcast. And so we took some, we kind of moved them around a little and this is what we're going to go with. So the you get one point for each when you get right, whoever has the most points is the winner and and a couple of them..

"What I mean by this. If you look at USC last year to play eleven straight games without a by all division, one opponents, no, no one AA opponents, which means they did not play Firmin or citadel, or stadium play Davis. They didn't play CEOs. I mean, they didn't play San Jose State. Actually, I think so state might be d- a but they didn't play any to eighteen. They played all division one teams without a by last week, eleven weeks, straight USC, and they're, he's kind of urging that's actually coming from the coach of a rival school. Continuing his continuing his quote here said without a by all division, one opponents, no one, eight AA opponents play right into the actual change a game and win that one that is more impressive than just having a strong schedule, but then having a week seven by a week, eight one AA opponent, which kind of gives you a break, which is true because who does that who does a week, I don't even know not even week they do week eleven's, Alabama does most SEC teams. They have a big game like a big rivalry game up. Next week album will play like this year playing citadel before they play Auburn in the iron bowl. So I mean, there's lots of schools that will kind of put a double one AA team right before big game called cupcake games. I mean, we even put the graphics on ESPN these days now where it's kind of make during Tacoma, joke kind of situation where no, they're playing these easy games yet. The airplanes easy games. I mean last year last year was the first time that USC had to play the entire season with auto by week. And of course, the two losses that did have were on the road at Washington state in an at Notre Dame last season two. So I mean, they did an eating the the end being David jaaz team Stanford in the PacTel championship game, and then we're slotted at the finish number eight. In there, they won the conference. So that's how much they want to see if he cares about conference champions. They don't. They don't care at all. They put them. I mean, putting them not putting them in the in the top four to put them in the turnament is for what is one thing. Playoff is one thing, but putting them beneath a three loss Auburn team. The didn't even win. This conference is kind of a joke. I mean, not that many people pay attention to the actual rankings after the the after the top four teams. Hey, maybe the fifth or sixteen because they're the ones that are the first ones out. So like last year, Ohio State or or Wisconsin last year, Wisconsin won their conference. I mean, so he saying USC finish number eight or behind three loss, Alabama, Auburn team who had a buy week. Between between two road games versus Arkansas and tech, say nam last year. So I mean, that's what David Josh trying to say, hey, these guys don't have breaks, these guys aren't. You should look at the how the schedule is laid out and actual progress process of scheduled versus the teams who played them because you can play them any week. And anytime coming off a bye week, coming off easy road game or a home game against a one AA school. They don't really look at that. They don't look at win you games lead into other games. Like I said, Alabama who plays citadel. I think before the arm bowl this year, who does op and play the before the iron bowl this year, I would not be surprised to find if it's a buy or if it's a or if it's again, a one AA school is going to act as kind of a cupcake. Honestly, let's see. Before they play, they played liberty. They played liberty college and home at home. They play liberty college at home. Oh, I wonder how much liberties being paid to liberal to be a basically a practice dummy and that and that week. I know obviously they play good Don conference. They play play good non conference game against Auburn. I mean, it gets sergeants Washington, the do the do the winning. It's damn state, and then they roll into SEC play with LSU. But they also play southern miss in the schedule as well in between Auburn and in between Arkansas, Mississippi State this year. So there's your fourth, the SEC's only only conference has four non conference game because he'll play eight conference games..

"Were hauled fans tasted and they say hey it's possible but he's not been able to the way he plays their style to recruit the kind of guys it you've got to recruit to beat the people in that division they've had some highs but they've also had some lows i think the the concern now monologue fans had they plateaued and they're not going to ever be able to get it any further seek can he recovery i the good football coach but they've got to continue to recruit at a high level and i think that's the biggest challenge he faces other coaches that face that same type in illinois i think whoever coaches in nebraska adding tennessee is another example of that you know when you look at sore who tennessee's hired ever since they ran flip former out so there are other schools that faith that type a dilemma and those are two of the ones that come to mind right off the top laptop my ahead next one is for you schick sticking in the sec victor pandolfi whose at v handoff we'd like to know of auburn runs the table and alabama's only loss is in the iron bowl who gets in the off out of the sec or is that just two from those two i think that is assuming that both would be in position to make the playoff okay so all burns obviously in at that point of auburn resita will their only loss would be the clemson early in the season i think the committee would say well yeltsin was still kinda figuring it out that's a very good clemson team clemson will likely be in the play off to and you take down the number one team auburn you're here in the question then becomes is alabama in and when you look at alabama's schedule they would pass at that point the i test with flying colours but they would not pass the resume tests they would pass best team but not most deserving team that test it would also depend on how they look in that game against auburn they're not going to get blown out if they lose to auburn it'll be a tight game but if they lose that game.
