like them because they're phenomenal and it's not just like ball shavers like there's there's legit things that I think people like I know they sent us a care package we talked about it but anyway is to huge games on the west coast and that's why we're going to in a minute here talked to Shane Larson kind of our our unofficial west coast correspondent guru the Guru the Gametime Guru we're gonNA talk to him in a minute but a big match up here is number thirteen Utah goes there at home they're at home against number seventeen Arizona's date which is a big pack twelve matchup in the South Oh huge huge it's going to be a both both teams are five and one a huge pack twelve south matchup and on paper it certainly looks like Utah has has the advantage I mean Utah's defense is one of the best defense in the country and Arizona State has been very lax lesser offense so it's going to be a defensive battle for sure if Arizona State's defense steps up did you see any of the highlights of Arizona State the Arizona State Washington state game on over here but did you see Brandon Euch Yeah you had what three touchdowns he's he he's really good he is a game changer so if he can get the ball when when when I look at some of the stats Utah has a legit defense only give about thirteen points a game right now for their top ten I tend there are top ten scoring defense a top ten defense against the run a top ten overall defense their pass defense is just okay pass efficiency defense is top twenty five so having legit defense out west and in Arizona state has not shown an efficient no offense with that this looks like a defensive battle I don't Wanna spend a ton of time on it because I think Utah is relevant I don't think Arizona State is relevant nationally okay naturally I don't have a freshman quarterback who is just coming in his own just wait nine no annual you sound like an Auburn Knicks come into his own just give just give us a chance dance but what I was going to be a fun game to watch a deadly fun game to see I will say this Arizona State has is the best defense in the country at defusing explosive runs I mean they've only given up ten explosive runs on the year and so it's going to be it's going to be the match probably going to be a defensive battle and I think Utah has the edge on defense but there's definitely going to be fun to watch and it's definitely going to be relevant and if you talk to pull out a big win that's going to want them back into a conversation of you know obviously a PAC twelve champion conversation but also a national conversation if they can it as a one loss team and kind of go down the stretch and beat the rest of these their schedule the other the other game in the West Coast is organ at Washington which going into Washington should should provide a contest origin and WanNa preview just for a quick second but then I want to bring in our west coast west coast correspondent Shane Larson to really give us a perspective on on the West Coast football because out I I don't know how everyone else's but out here we don't hear a lot about him see a lot about him I mean most of the Games are late at night and I've watched I've watched more than I ever have this here but it's just it's not a relevant region because of time zones low time zones and the fact that there's no PAC twelve undefeated team yeah there's there's nobody national relevant today I mean there could the year organs one loss at the end of the year if they're one loss team they could be but this Oregon Washington game's going to be interesting I know Oregon's leading receiver their tight end Jason bruins out for the season now and they're already tight end Cam McCormick for the year previously so it's they definitely there is not a healthy organ rolling into town but they have the the Uber the hyped Justin Herbert coming in coming into Washington to put on a show but the cool thing is I think this is Oregon's best defense they've had since only fourteen because they had a decent pretty good defense the year that we played them in the National Championship game but this is your talk ten defense pretty much statistically cross board yeah you when you look at it Washington comes in with the second best scoring offense in the PAC twelve going up against organs best scoring defense in the PAC twelve and so that's a match up I think you look at it and you know if organs Oregon should be able to move the ball on on Washington but can organs defense slowdown this Washington off and the moral of the story is I think you look at analytics and compare categories compare analytics I do in my little formula and Washington is a twenty four place underdog on offense compared to Oregon's defense but the really scary part is critical else third-down red zone all those critical down there seventy-one spots lower than Oregon's defense and that's where that's where you make your money I mean that's the money down and that's they do Washington has an advantage on when they're on defense on critical downs kind of a ten spot spike I guess over Oregon so it'll be interesting to see but it should be a complete shutdown organs defense but I really want to now I want to jump into our Shane Larsen and get his opinion on it so we're going to go live in Boise. Was Shane Larson all right well we how joined on menace to society with the Game Guru Quick Story about the game time gurus the first podcast I ever went on I don't know that Shane I don't even know you knew that I did not know that actually so that's that's news to me that's awesome I'm glad I was able to be the first well I once once we started outcast I really was like you know what this is a cool platform I didn't know much about it and then you had reached out to have me on and so like anything he's GonNa go on a random podcast and I listened to episode when you know previous episode and I was like this is really good I'll go on this for sure and that was the first one I ever did so those who don't know Shane Larsen he's the game time guru he is now on the unscripted podcast network I guess is what you call it and he has a phenomenal podcast really great insight and he One of the many buckeyes out West Right Shay Yeah Man I'm I call myself the Boise Buckeye born and raised in Boise but a huge fan on the voice you Buckeye got quite a few of them out here surprisingly Oh you know what's funny is in recruiting I used to travel obviously travel the country and there wasn't a place I went that there weren't buckeyes like in in a school you're in the airport or somewhere it's unbelievable it's definitely an international brand and its coast-to-coast they're everywhere well I appreciate you coming on the show I definitely think this is going to be really good for for the national audience because I don't know obviously you're out out west and out here in the Midwest and even the southeast there's not a lot of talk about west coast all because there's not really a nationally relevant team obviously no no power five undefeated team left so we really wanted to get your perspective on just what's the talk out west like what what are people talking about as far as the national landscape when you are out on the west coast I mean we're talking about the Boise State Broncos I know you mentioned that like there's no there's no undefeated our five but don't be don't be cutting our Bronco Short here do ver- you know I know a group of five but we're still undefeated and we're rolling into Byu this weekend you gotta give some credit there right and as a fact factor is the the Bluefield Boise broncos are never to be forgotten that that is a great point They got Byu ha ha tell me this how boise real is that a real deal like I know they're undefeated but you think this is the Boise of old where they were GonNa go upset and Oklahoma or someone like that at the end of the year man this is that's a good question I think what we're seeing here with boise the fact that they're undefeated unbelievable to US Boise state and because they have put together a full game yet they have a championship defense their defense is absolutely phenomenal even with our former defensive coordinator heading over to Oregon and we thought we were gonNA have a drop off but the defendant absolutely incredible so they have that we're still trying to find the rhythm on offense and then with our freshmen faulk Meyer going down this last game taking a shot hit it's GonNa be interesting going into to Provo heading down to Provo just six miles south of here or sorry tower south of here but we'll see what happens with our quarterback coming in I do believe that if the team gets passed Byu we have a couple of games the end of the season but if we can get our offense rolling and a good rhythm we were looking pretty good against the UAE last week we look really good against Hawaii actually just last week I think that they they might be I don't know if they're at the level of two thousand and I guess the two thousand ten thousand seventeen thousand ninety thousand ten pt you and some others but I do believe you know in two thousand six clown but we weren't even not talented back then I do believe we're we're getting there I don't know if we're quite there yet though Gotcha well that's it'll be citing to watch everybody loves a Cinderella in easy has been that countless times so that'd be really cool to see air to watch and watch it I'll play out and see if they can the best part about it is when they get to the end of the season they go play a big time opponent in a bowl game and you're like all right let's see what they're talking about let's see what this is how real this is it's always exciting I really wanted to get your insight because there's game this week and no one is talking about it really but Oregon Washington is a huge huge matchup for the PAC twelve for sure and it's also a huge matchup from what I understand I certainly don't know anything about it but it's it's somewhat of a rivalry now right yeah man and this kind of goes back to your original question that kind of went off and around with with Boise state but it kind of goes back to your question about what are we soon testes and so two judge packbell based on their a couple of their ballgames it's kind of tough I love about the pack twelve is the fact that it's pretty competitive from top to bottom.

Carmelo says that and he's just like what what do you mean and but I kind of believe that he is when he says what do you mean that he was like legit asking about Viagra and the the timing of when he goes and listen up because this concerns you to Carmel is perfect like Gandolfini like really nailing that line but yeah it's great yeah at Ed's adds wall I do so we have a quick surgery seeing then where they do they do stick them up and the doctor makes a joke like my God I found I'm Jimmy Hoffa funny stuff. We move on to have again more people kind of wandering in their meadow reading from the Dinosaur Dinosaur Book Jason Brown shows up with Paulie and he gets he gets a talking to hear he they sort of laid out for him like don't you go and I'm trying to sell now we want to take we don't WanNa see you get hurt. So it's interesting here what's going on. Obviously we know where it ends up. Do they not want him to sell at all or what do they. What do you think their goal is here Y- I think they either don't want him to sell it all or at the very least to one of their guys because much like who we see what is it like Cinelli or whatever later in the episode that's basically WanNa Jonny sack skies but I think they would probably prefer yet? Don't sell it all because they're running business. As usual or I think Tony does mentioned. Let me talk to a few people but there's still the veneer era of niceness here at this point. They're still the polite like weights like it Oughta here. We'll go over the numbers and I think Paul even dropped some like business lingo like do you even know you know the return after capital and stuff like that so yeah. It's the classic mob guy where they're being nice but if you understand the situation like he's he still doesn't understand the situation so he's not reading that yeah. They're being nice but they're also saying like hey this is this is gonna be bad for you. You know if they hadn't been so nice. It probably would have worked better for this guy right because if they were like if you sell thou we're going to break your legs. He wouldn't have tried to sal he wouldn't have gotten himself in that tricky situation rights or other would the other career tried to take over those routes anyway. I don't know I don't know I feel like I feel like again. This is going back to like the he so naive like he should understand. He should be able to read the room here but I guess what he's a ski instructor dirt. He's been shielded by his parents so he doesn't get it but he should. He should understand what's happening. Yeah so time to get the e plot rolling here. We have paulie showing up at a comments I suppose Um nice place nuns outside trimming the grass us and so we all know what happens in the same paulie finds out that the person he thought was his aunt is actually his mother. This is so so unbelievably common. It's the only thing I would say is more common is when people find out that someone they think is their mother is actually luther. Grandmother is older sister is actually their mother going back. I mean in the UK is extremely common. I don't I don't know about the US but just like that's the thing that happens. A Lot. Eight is very much a believable to me. How did you feel about this development? I I'm actually going to surprise surprised you just say how common it is but yeah I guess I mean you're also speaking from a place of authority. You have for genealogy company that yeah so yeah love. It did not going into specifics. Just trust me on this. It happens. That's interesting yeah. I I mean I love this story line. I I love that I- randoms not the right way to describe it but it's such an interesting thing to put with with you know Paulie walnuts here yes and so the way we know him and it really is. It's like like something I'd never think of it. Pull it. Fully you know. Is this character being like my life is a lie because we know about poly you know besides being kind of like a wise ass who's like super cheap and selfish we know he loves his mother and that's like the main thing like he doesn't have a wife. He doesn't have kids. He takes care of his mind. That's like an important thing to him and for something like this to happen a truly does put him in a like. Oh my God my life is a lie what now how so I really like it. Didn't it did seem kind of out of nowhere but you saying that it's actually pretty common. That's kind of interesting to me yeah. it's like his mother is the only thing he loves really yeah. I mean it doesn't even have the painting anymore right so so he doesn't have anything left in his life that he cares is about so not surprising the this is a big upheaval for him. It is great how I mean jumping ahead. He is is obviously very tumultuous for him and then at the end I do love the thing where he seen Jason Barone at the love that his mother has for him and how that that it makes him very in the moment but then later he wants to take that away from Jason He wants to punish him for being loved by his mother which just such a great move. I don't know I just love it because he doesn't really need those four thousand a month. It's not his to take or claim but like it's really just motivated evaded by him but it's fuck this. It's also the cost to keep his mind Green Grove and I said Yeah because I because he does bring that up when he's talking to Tony like four grand a month for that nursing home so I do I feel like Tony gets through to them because what Tony says it's very very reasonable way like I know we're jumping around but like like towards the end here when Tony's like she still like maybe she's not biologically your mother but she's still your mother like she's still like she still loves loves. Paulie and Tony Brings up like all the Times that she was still there for them so I feel like I feel like that does get through to them and I think he's GonNa keep her there but yeah yeah he's GonNa make baron fit the bill or or fill the bill and I'm not even speaking on this from authority because I don't remember if that's what happens or not even though I have seen all the episodes. It's been a long time but I do think it's not a coincidence that he asked for four grand a month. That's great. I really like that because is he's lashing out but then like you said he's probably gonNA use that to keep his mother there but then it's like Jason Bruins paying attacks on being loved by his mother and like all these mother just died two years found out at the last possible. Moment didn't have a chance to process it so he's in such a bad way that he doesn't even go to the funeral and he just is full of hate and everything so I would love if there's an extra layer there where he also keeps his his foster mother in or aunts in Green Grahovo regret yeah then we have the scene with where they're kind of making statements mints on American Healthcare here where the The lady comes in the attractive woman comes in to kind of mutually maybe a doctor or something and I love Tony's his attitude shift where he's kind of starting out like a little flirty and then once she realized like she works for the Insurance Company and they're kind of the crunch and the old numbers to see if it's worth keeping him here in the hospital because they get a free Abed up and get the next person in you know keep the bill from getting too high. They mentioned the Wallet Biopsy where you know they checked to make sure he has insurance otherwise will dump them off at a Shittier hospital and he calls her recount. I forget his exact phrasing. Please like get Outta my room. You sick conto something like that. Yes I think mainly to increase the urgency Z. of him like holding onto Brown's annotations so he has like healthcare through that. Is that the main purpose of this or what do you think yeah. I think that's a big part of it because that he he does start bringing that up between the W. Two and the healthcare gets from his face. what's the W. Two. That's like like a it's basically a tax form. That says you make money from a legit job so you know with all the with the way these guys operate they have money all the time and and it to to at least show the reason why he could have a house that he has the car that he has it has to look like he's getting it from a legit source of income and that's why he has has a job in title only that is enough to show up in because it basically hides them from the feds. I think there's there's two things with Tony Oni where at the end of the episode the show.

"News, local science stories of national significance hurricane Florence, and it's end it's ather, man. Aftermath brought to widespread flooding to the Carolinas in beyond, you know, all about that and adding to the heartbreak of all at water was the potential release of wastes a flood of coal. Ash into the Cape fear river was the fear and the coal ash isn't quite like the harmless white ash from your charcoal grill, it contains elevated levels of arsenic and other heavy metals. Any needs to be contained joining me now to talk about this is Jason Bruin. He's a data reporter at UNC. He stationed in Durham, North Carolina, welcome to the program. IRA nice be with you. Hey, nice to have you so tells what is coal. Ash? Where is it? What is the story about. Well, you set it at the top. It's not like the charcoal assets you might find in your grill, but in fact, contains quite toxic, heavy metals, including arsenic, and you know, of course we need to burn coal to create electricity. That's one of the great advances over the past, maybe half century or so, but we didn't realize that it came with this quite dangerous products. And so now we're dealing with that now. So what happened in this case. So we don't know exactly what happened in Cape fear yet in on a molecular level, but we do know is that flood waters from hurricane Florence? Basically barraged these two holding ponds that hold back at and then also sort of retaining pawn that's next to it to protect the ash base in from the Cape fear river with all these heavy floodwaters that we got. There was a breach I into that first berm that holds back sort of the cooling water, and then later into the second berm that holds back the waters for the coal ash pond. And so with all that water running in from the Cape fear river, you had all the waters mixing together. And then of course exiting out the bottom end. And obviously obviously the fear there is that coal ash then mixed with the lake water and then mixed alternately with the river water downstream. So so do we have any evidence that the ash did get released into the river. So what we know is that Duke Energy has done its tests and has said that it tests are conclusive that there were not elevated levels of arsenic in the water. Now, of course, environmentalists like with the Waterkeeper alliance have been out on the water and they say that they have seen ash in the water now actually went out with them on on Saturday, and I was in a in a little boat with them on the river and also saw what to my eye looks to be like coal, ash. They've taken water samples. They meaning the the Waterkeeper they've taken water samples, but they're still waiting on those results. Don't have those back yet. And of course also were still waiting for state regulators who also took samples again, don't have those results back yet though, could have affected any other river, this coal ash. Well, it's interesting that you should ask that because just a few literally about hour and a half ago, we got word from the Waterkeeper alliance that in fact, there are elevated levels of arsenic in a different river in the news river. That's also here North Carolina and near a little town of gold's, bro. So that is near a different Duke Energy plant and the similar situation. Duke Energy said that it's tests were conclusive that there were not elevated levels of arsenic, but now we do have water test back from the Waterkeeper alliance where they say that.
