"jimbo fisher" Discussed on The Paul Finebaum Show

"To keep espn at the top visit. Ibkr dot com slash fantasy football to learn more. We are back really looking forward to our next guest. He'll be part of one of the most eagerly anticipated match up to the year in the sec. When arkansas takes on texas. Am in arlington coach. Jimbo fisher welcome to the program I know it's been somewhat of a bizarre couple of weeks but you look pretty good though no worst aware. How are you doing well. This ain't i always beginning of a new season. Is your evolving your team developing your team. And the things you do. Well you do poorly and coaching them up. And you know watching this team evolve can be. I heard you after the game. I think it was after the game when Somebody was talking about the potential for this team. And you didn't seem to take too kindly to that word and for those who miss it. I wouldn't mind you explaining that description of your team because you said it reflects on everything does potential as the potential made you have ability. But you haven't done it yet. That means you need to consistently play a better in a higher level and potential can be a great word in the beginning but it can be it can be very detrimental word as you keep progressing along in the season and we're three games and we're we're nowhere near a perfect team and we're always the hopefully evolving each and every week but you don't want potential attached to you. Want to see progress attached to you. You're undefeated you've got quite a stretch. But whatever knew that would that would be the case. But i'm curious about your thoughts on the quarterback situation. You lost your starter. You have a young man who came in and did lead you to a tough victory. How do you feel about the offense right now. Under zodda existence that can get the ball all parts of the field. He came in a very tough situation and cholera. Got thrown into it and we didn't play well around him. Either it was. It was not just him. It was magnified because of him Receivers tied enzo line. Run mean different guys but then he was able to really pull it back in the last two drives. He had that football game was really remarkable. With the way we were playing in that. See that gives me tons of hope. And then i thought he played a very solid football game last. We'll get one mistake with a pick. But he made three touchdown throws kubwa really outstanding. Good on third down managed the game. I thought played a very very solid game is progressing very well listen. He has ability to beach with his legs and he can definitely get the ball to all parts of the field with his arm. Let's turn the page to this week. And i don't think you've missed. Maybe maybe weren't paying attention but you are now what arkansas has been doing in your assessment of what you've seen of them. Well you know it's funny each and every team across the country this year. It's kind of. I say a different year. Everybody's trying to find their legs. Arkansas found him either one of the few teams that have played very solidly all three games. They're running the ball exceptionally well. You saw what they did in texas game and other games in which they played very good ground. Ground game quarterback jefferson's doing now standing job of getting the ball down hitting so many big plays receivers or athletic tight ends a good player Backs can run it. Defensively barry always done a great job. Barry mixes three down front. Four down fronts blitzes multiple coverages and that team is playing very physical. They're playing very hard to play. Very disciplined and wrestle. Teams are very. Well so i mean they're playing in all three phases right now well into the country. You'd say everyone in your career winning a national championship being in the playoffs playing for titles. I i'm curious about you'd mentioned barrio. Open because a lot of people have really Painted a very positive picture of him if somebody that has gone against the best everywhere what is it like to go against him very multiple. I mean he makes you dot is and cross t.'s. I mean he's a zone guy. He's a man guy he's a blitz guy. He's a three down guy he's a four down guy and the multiplicity of things he makes you think as a play collar but he makes your kids think on the field because of how you have to set your system up and i think he does a really good job of that coach. I know you can only focus on what is ahead but As a fan as somebody. Who's in this league. I'm sure you you look around when you have a minute to. And i'm curious just overall because we've seen already we're we're just three weeks into the season so many bizarre things happen. What's going on here. I think you're into a new world now. I think you know you're into a transfer of puerto world so teams are going to change drastically good and bad. Some guy's gonna leave play teams other teams going to get new guys so i think the different groups of people always coming together. I think you're now. I think all your name image and likeness things. I think it's a new thing for all these kids to handle and deal with. And i know it's great for them to get it but it's a lot more added pressure in other added things to to what they've got going on and i is this landscape of college football constantly changes. I think the kids are going to have to just think. That's what you see. And i think you know you're getting really good performances and then you a little bit of inconsistency and certain areas but in the teen talented are still finding ways to win. But i think that's part of the new world in which we're going to be in part of it in my opinion in college football from now this. There's also an expectation and you'd be you've been there You know having the defending national champion. You know how tough it is and you you. You went the whole season without a loss until the end. And we see this whether it's a clemson whether it's alabama ohio state oklahoma it just seems like these teams that we have. The the bullet bull's eye on their back are struggling this season. So far this and here's the other thing guys. Don't stay in school as long anymore. So you're getting a ton of guys are hitting at junior thing and they're leaving and going to the wall of a sudden you're playing freshman and sophomores and this even though they're very talented that doesn't mean they can handle all the situations distress the game management situations of game.

"Even stay late if you haven't gotten your calling. Thanks for being a part of the program. What a weekend and what a day it is to react. Let's get right to it. And then your phone calls here in just a moment. Alabama and florida. dan mullen alabama. I hope we play them really soon. Check the schedule. I don't see an opening until first saturday. In december could it happen maybe alabama was outrushed by one hundred fifty four yards in its win versus florida. It's second worst margin in fifteen seasons under nick saban. The only team with a larger margin was arkansas. Oh seven backfield included mcfadden felix jones and peyton hillis we. I'm going to save time. Because i want to hear from you. But i think everything that has been said speaks for itself about what happened in the swamp. I heard from a pretty prominent player From the alabama side yesterday and he said i didn't realize it was going to be that loud well yes it was that loud and it was deafening on all accounts and a pretty amazing performance by the florida gators. Meanwhile oh alabama want to Clemson ohio state slip in. Ap top twenty five despite wins. Yeah those are two programs that are heading in the wrong direction and with the blue bloods looking mortal. Is this a year for a big shocker. Pizza will joining us in a few minutes to on that might be most losses by rank teams in the first three weeks of the season. We'll welcome to twenty one. Next year was oh five sixteen had a bunch of ninety eight. We're only three weeks into the season. Big twelve they're doing okay. Esi pac twelve is not. Can't wait for the more alliance games so that number can even be worse. So there's so much react to over the weekend not only alabama but auburn going to happy valley The mississippi state memphis game. Yeah we're here for all your calls me while aggies up next for arkansas. Their average who said that who would dare say their average. We're playing very average. I mean i mean we're we're much more capable what we can do but doesn't potential doesn't potential is the worst thing you can have mean. Jane doesn't it. I hate to work potential. Somebody said you've got a potential to have a good tan drives me nuts. I mean. I'm not coaching right. And they're not playing right. We gotta get better and all those aspects and we got we gotta grow up across the board and everything. We do play with much more consistency as a team and learned to play off each other. Okay well we'll talk to jimbo fisher in twenty six minutes and get his take on the big razor by game pizza animal from yahu mcelroy on the alabama game and teo l. boys later on officiating. It was a story over the weekend. The sec releasing a few statements clarification mix up both in penn state and in memphis the memphis. Where have you heard about this. Just what we're going to show you. That's kind of hard to describe what let's let's video speak for itself memphis leading. Twenty one seventeen You kinda gotta give this guy credit. He just walked in there. So you know what i think. I'll pick the ball up all run. It ninety some odd yards and see if anyone notices. Nobody did until until after the game when the sec issued Multiple statements the sec. Officiating pr person was busy on saturday. Let's get to your phone calls. Eight five five two four two seven two eight five. We start with john in louisville. Hello john good afternoon comment some the gains and get your crystal ball thoughts on the playoffs. But i wanted to just complimentary on your interview with Or king last week. Grace and dignity Just so positive and Kinda stood in stark contrast to the usual suspect. Callers who liked the disparaging denigrate other callers. I mean he was just class for those who miss it Horace was part of a group Honored by the university of georgia on the anniversary of the those four breaking the color barrier in athens and He was spectacular. I'm glad you. I'm glad you Made mention of that so impressed by I wanted to see if alabama was good having played A band miami team in mercer there now and i was wondering good. Florida was while i was so impressed. Auburn impressed those were great gains in georgia. Look real you know. Well balanced I thought and so you know. I i'd like you. I came away with thinking. Well if all Clemson can get us two hundred and eighty four yards and Offense they're not much and always you gave up another five hundred yards in defense so and say look forward of course oklahoma. You know. I think oklahoma did one thing. They say the nebraska coach job for at least four weeks. So as i look ahead. Just you know. Just making some assumptions. I wanted to get your thoughts. I think alabama and georgia will run the table and one of the two will lose out the finals. And then i look at oklahoma and oregon Who have easy schedules. Oklahoma texas may have been there tough as a match. That's gone in oregon. Ucla been their toughest match. And that's gone so i see them being undefeated. So i see those is the final four although notre dame as bad as they are may run the table because of an easy schedule. But i totally see clinton issue out at this time with one loss record. Do you think it'll be a one loss team. In the final four notre dame will be out by the way notre dame runs the table. Don't don't sleep on their schedule. They have wisconsin this week in cincinnati. Next and i blew it. Then those are those are in you. Know i think notre dame has a pretty formidable schedule quite frankly With north carolina on there and stanford late. I mean they they really i. I will be surprised. Notre dame survives out schedule. But if they do. I would have no problem putting notre dame in i kinda some of those Teams because North carolina. certainly. Turn things around this weekend. And i forgotten about wisconsin. You're right paul by the way Cincinnati is a team That a lot of folks has a legitimate shot at getting into the playoffs. And if they can beat notre dame that is going to be one of the biggest wins ever for them. Hey thank you very much for the call. Eddie is in florida. You're on the air. Paul thanks for taking my call man. What a great game road damn tied a. What a great game in we. Hey let me just say this. I know you're gonna have a lot of college calling in panic involved. I am not worried about. We are good or right for we supposed to be neat. Hate to break it to you. But that's that's a pretty much the say delusional response there. If you take a good look at the way the alabama defense performed and coached opo april for some reason. You're breaking up which is a good thing to do right now but breaking his hard to do especially when you can't see the forest for the trees i'm not i'm not suggesting alabama's gonna lose. I'm just suggesting that they have issues and florida. Blue them up in those in those vulnerable issues that we had been told. We're no longer going to be there. They have some issues That need to be corrected or otherwise The eddie's of the world will be jumping off bridges. Soon we are heading to a break. Eight five five two four two seven two eight five. That is our number jimbo fisher bottom of the hour all aboard and what. What was the train that was supposed to be running through here today. The shane train. How's that doing..

"Espn dot com slash fantasy football for back sec media days on a day that began many hours ago with the arrival of vanderbilt in alabama and this afternoon mississippi state and say it seemed like just a normal wednesday immediate as until story came out of texas that said that the university of texas and oklahoma have inquired about joining the southeastern conference. So we just got through chat chatting about that with jimbo fisher coach ross. Bjork is here as well. The athletic director ross. Thanks for being here and tell us what you know about this and what you think. Well paul we were chatting off air a little bit. I came here to support our players. Marvin and kenyon and coach fisher. And just seen the media in a while. And i thought it'd be good to just get out and about in in the footprint and catch up with a lot of people in the industry and and i walk in and pretty much. The news was hitting as we were walking in the hotel and so i was caught off guard. Just like you're just like a lot of people here in in hoover were caught off guard and our position is look. There's a reason why we left the big twelve back in two thousand eleven and started in july first of two thousand twelve is that we wanted to have a standalone identity and the state of texas and all the turmoil that was happening in college athletics at the time and so the. Sec's been a perfect fit for us. And we believe that we want to maintain that that same identity. Perhaps there's a reason why texas and oklahoma are looking around. If that's the case. I think jimbo said it on the podium. Of course they do. They want to be in the. It's the best conference so there's a lot of uncertainty. I think right now in college athletics. So i think this type of story fuels that a little bit but from our perspective. We love being in the sec. We love being the only program in the state of texas. And we're gonna maintain that position but we're also going to make sure that we are a leader in college athletics and we'll see what the future holds even at two different schools in the you sat in these rooms for a long time and it is for the most part collegial group of athletic directors and headed by about commissioner. Sankey a i. I don't think you have a good answer for this. Because i've seen you you making the rounds here but have you had a chance to talk to anyone that is in a position to know more. I haven't. I've been running around a my phone. Obviously has been buzzing calls from lots of people call athletic directors around the country calls from other eighties within the commissioners sankey. And i will. We'll have a chance to catch up at some point in time..

Kansas splits with athletic director Jeff Long two days after parting ways with Les Miles

"Get you updated on what is happening in lawrence kansas. Where less mild was let go the other day and then this afternoon the man who hired him and presumably let him go has also been shown. The door crisslow joining us on that story and others. Chris thanks for the time. Always good to have you on and give us the latest. How did how did how did this happen. So quickly with jeff long. It's great to be with you. Always i I really felt like we heard the news about less miles that this was just it was going to happen with jeff law and just did not senior way. He would survive. I think what happened in a lot of donors a kansas at the end of the day. The president a chance to learn. Douglas giradi heard from several influential donors that they just did not want to be the guy to hire the next head football coach and i think when you look back sort of having all the down with less weight ended there that The more that they thought about it. And i think jeff athletics look long enough to know he said in a statement. Today was going to be a huge distraction more hung around and and they wanna make a clean break. Bring somebody else in to hire the knicks head football coach. Oh by the way they got issues the basketball program. Well they certainly do. And i saw her. Danny manning announced that he was a contender for the ad job. But as we. I don't know whether tennessee is the template but you do need an athletic director to get in there. Fairly quickly don't you. Yeah you don't the what's your proverbial tail wagging the dog. So yeah you gotta bring somebody else somebody. And it's going to be the ad someone that's that's gonna be the football coaches boss. I tell you name to keep in mind. Travis goff and northwestern we went to kansas undergrad. There how highly respected and sort of in the world. And he's a guy that you're going to hear a lot of push for from donors from influential people there k you to bring in to come in higher this the next head football coach. I think a guy will be certainly equipped to deal with. What's going to come their way on the basketball front as well talking to crisslow chris. Let me just take a step back and go back in time time to lsu and unless miles and after this information dumped the other day and learning much more about what happened down there and what didn't happen. I'm curious as a reporter who has covered so many scandals in so many so many big stories in college football just your your takeaway from from the progression of that program with with joe alita and less miles to to really where it is now and where does it go to try to clean up a rather tattered reputation. Yeah you think back to two thousand eleven ten years ago paul. Lsu's on top of the world now. Granted they lost alabama national championship. But that was a great football team In in a team that was is elite as it gets and now here. We are ten years later and they won the championship last year. But a lot of things off the field. A lot of things going on you know you. You always felt like there at the end of his tenured. Lsu that there was a lot of people. They're out to get him. When i say out to get him that wanted to move on. I just felt like they could do better. But as you know you know the sec. As well as anybody yeses. He thinks they can do better. Except for maybe in tuscaloosa And i think the some of the political forces around lsu sorta helpless. We're on his side to leave. Certainly it and four games the sixteen season they got it in. You heard jimbo. Fisher's name all sorts of aim. Tom herman the end up with a lot of people felt like that was never going to work with all the old winter national championship last year and really a great job assembling people going out and getting staff around in but now here we are off the field with this complete invested in investigation. As some of the way things have been handled with sexual assault domestic incidents going back before was head coach So you're right. There's there's a lot on their at lsu Just like kansas. You've got issues with the basketball team as well So it's It's a mess right now. We'll see where it all

Lsu Shoe Obviously Alabama probably not going too far Who else do you see? Maybe making a run or do you see anyone making a run at least for the West I I again I think that you take 'em pay Jimbo Fisher. Seventy five million dollars guaranteed to do better than this. Now you've got two years To to get settled battled to to figure out the direction of the program. Now it's time to start competing they're gonNA have experienced. I think on both sides of the ball. They have some spots to fill defensively. I know you lost a couple of receivers to the NFL draft. But if it's not gonNA happen in your three. I think some doubts GonNa be setting in in college station that we we paid this guy all all this money to compete with the likes of certainly Alabama but also now LSU in Auburn when is when are we gonNA get a return on that investment. So I think there's GonNa be a lot of pressure sure on taxes and this is again a team that I think could make some noise on that side and then in the east. You're probably Georgia's Florida again and Georgia's fascinating fascinating because they have to close that gap offensively much like Lsu.

"Coming up on this signing day edition of the audible, Bruce talks to Texas stadium. Coach JIMBO Fisher we recap the other events from signing day and talk about the bazaar. Southern miss attempt to hire art brawls, and you get treated to the sounds of construction for my kitchen coming up next. Welcome to the Armel presented by trader Joe's. I'm Stewart Mandel joined by Bruce Feldman, it is signing day at least the second signing of this cycle. And Bruce you able to talk about a coach who had a monster class in twenty one thousand nine. Yeah. Jimbo Fisher coming off his first full season. They had a nice season on the field at an even bigger season audit where they dominated in the state of Texas against their archrival university of taxes. So interesting stuff going on as you'll hear from JIMBO in a minute. We covered a bunch of objects and cover them pretty fast because he talks incredibly fast. He is the hardest coach in America to transcribe. So fortunately, you don't have to do that listen to the interview. And then we're gonna talk some more about signing day events around the country. And now we're pleased to be joined by the head coach of the Texas. Am aggies JIMBO Fisher coach, thanks for joining us today. I gotta start off by asking your arch rival school, Texas. Had a good season on the field and Goodyear by all accounts recruiting, but you guys have dominated the state of Texas, according to two four seven six of the top thirteen kids in the state of Texas are going to be aggies only two or Texas. How are you guys able to dominate the state the way you have this year? Together, we have one after and I think built a relationships with the players the coaches in the family, and we have a great place to sell, and I think we have a great product here. And like I said, it's one of the reasons I came here. I don't think any school in America, can touch you personally, academically athletically in launching your career when you're done with that Accu network because we as well as a him. And I think you have a lot to sail I think we have the SEC sale that we're doing. But also, I think our coaches did a tremendous job of building relationships with the coaches and with the players, and and we got the guys up here in they see the direction in which we're going in division, which we have the program with some some really talented big people. I'll can't Kenyan green Derek honor. What stands out about those guys what caught your eye? I think first of all we all have skill guys. And you've got a delicious kill guys play. You gotta have the Gaza up front. The guys on the defensive line can stop skill gossiping effective because they can fix the quarterback in the back and the guy of lying the time. And I'm still a believer that the game is one in. Wrenches with the hands of the dirt man to allow the skill guys. But those got all can affect the game was fad Lynn power explosion athleticism, and are just natural football player played great pad level when I think, you know, if Lord willing they stay healthy. I mean, they're gonna play this game. A long time. Sure old boss Nick Sabin for Lille. What what was it about him? The why do you think he has a chance to to be a difference maker for you?.

And so that's a really really good move because you can bring him in and he can Cosa quarterbacks and you got to move any of your staff members Prue talk about folks talks a lot of folks. And I think he's gonna continue to talk to to more NFL regular seasons concluded and you look at connections to Pruitt. I mean, I think I think talking to see star casualty favors smart for German Pruitt. I'm a big Lang Kippen in play call fan, and you look at D Sarkissian, and they were by me a lot of each other. I know Jalen hurts says some of the same things couple years ago when Sarkissian bears Alabama so prude has some some really good options. But he's he's only taking time Paul. It's become it's become really really funny, but they were working on about six weeks. Now, if you had to guess and Sark became available the other day, let go by land. And by the way, before people talk about what did in Atlanta. I mean, he was wasn't he p carols offensive coordinator. Yeah. Absolutely human Lancashire in domestic together. So that lot success. Yeah. I mean, he he was I think he moved on before kiffin. Now, he went to Washington, and then kiffin moved up and then got the job. So he had he has very much a big reputation his one game at Alabama didn't go well and his tenure in Atlanta. Didn't exactly light anybody up. But that doesn't mean he can't be a good coordinator. No, I think he can't be think Pruitt what he needs is the head coach of the offense. So that way he can you know, he can manage a head coach if he wants to be able in babble and defense coordinator. Absolutely. He could do that Pruitt from the old school hostel cokes that coast every position on the field. And if he could think Pruitt try to do that. But you just can't do that at this level. And so I just think Pruitt needs to hire guy trust the head coach offense something like David Cutlip back when coach former hat him didn't have to worry about the offense. 'cause coast could had that taken care of the head coach dolphin. I think Pruitt needs to get that same guy. Also wanna mention that you know, has a really great offense of mine on the staff right now, Joe OSA who came from the ranks it just. Doesn't make a lot of sense that we approaching six weeks of the coaching search, and if you were to make that move to make it now. But I mean, I think honestly, I think proves gathering information interviewing as many people as possible and take time he certainly not in a rush like Miami. As then even though I made the right the right har- just different position. How would you say recruiting win and has it set up for February? Considering the season. I mean, you look at a guy like ours Coutts who during the recruiting process really monitoring the progress can if you feel ball team the hats who wins, but they had to the loss of the end of the season. They close out on him. He signed he get Eric gray who flute from Michigan to Tennessee. I felt Tennessee. Really good job. It's tough. Because kids wanna they wanna win. They wanna see you win. But then if you're Tennissee you need them, so you can win more. So it's difficult. And so he's gonna have to win some of those tough game. The South Carolina game was really tough because that was a that was a win that was right there and fingertip. So to have to win some tough games to get those attention at wants to see Tennessee win a little bit more for the Mecom. But I thought Tennessee religion job considering the circumstances and not being able to a ballgame. Tennessee position to close to. When you're down for Jeremy Pruitt, I would say this program, you tell me certainly feels like it's got momentum..

"It's a big difference. Nothing. Now, that's the coach to get around. Because that's the only time we get out before we didn't get to see a lot of the junior. And I think early I would personally like to see it at the end of July. I really would. I'd like to see it before the season. I think it would help address it with assistant coaches time what they're doing. But I don't find good. We have to have one. Maybe we can get back in time. I think it's gonna stay where that for now. But I am of. Let me be among the early people to ask you and you'll be asked this about eight billion times between now and Monday night. You played both teams in the championship. You know, both coaches, very, well, you know, both programs in looking at these two. How would you? How would you evaluate in separate and compare and contrast, you know, when we played it? We played them very early. I think. Gotten a lot better to please here as they were. I think I'll Abouna has to I think it's a very evenly my step deal because I think both teams have explosive player on offense. It can as I have one play Dr Clinton's receivers are dynamic outside the running back nine at. He hit. He gets green grass he could run away. Now that Lawrence's playing quarterback he can throw the football and get it vertically. The thing about you. Gotta be careful. I think the pass he's still could pull that ball in those don't read it. He may not go fifty but he can go ten and fifteen and hurt you keep drives alive in that regard, Alabama so dynamical office. I mean, they got three receivers all can catch. The tight end is a is a slew of people forget about all the study hurt you their back. They got three three backs that can really run the football, of course, to play as good as anybody. And I think it's gonna get downturn over big plays defense. Both have outstanding front play the Runwell who pressure the other guys passer. I think is going to be very critical. It gives him out of rhythm create some negative place. It wants you doing that. In the special teams. I think are going to be a big factor in this game. I think it's going to be tightly contested game. Because Clemson Alabama you keep lately I've given up. From down the field and in Clemson control the football to do that. But return, I think, you know, Clinton had given up the plays in the past game in Alabama case, I think the big plays consistency the kicking game turnovers going to be a big part of it. And who which team can figure out a way to run the football and take press off the quarterback. So he didn't have to make every play. Finally in these games. You you wanna national championship in the BCS area. You were in the playoffs. You've been tremendously big bowl games of is it different. When when it's down to one game. It is it is because anything can happen more game. And you you try to prepare. You got it. You are you are what you are don't want because that's why you're successful. But you've got to be on alert to the special per the festival the special trick play and any little wrinkle that that did somebody thinks you can get in or you can get in yourself to try to create an advantage because you get this far the team play is going to be a great team, you wouldn't be played them. But you're trying to find that one little edge or some kind of play. And like you say one game can make the difference at the big thing about that game in my opinion is don't worry about whether it worry about playing prepare to play it. And then play the game. It's still a game. Because you get caught up. I gotta win the championship. I think that's team get tight. I think that's teams can allow at least for the call something slip away. When you play good team. You can't afford to waste any of those any of that time, Jim officiers. Congratulations again on a phenomenal first season. Look forward to seeing. Thank you for coming on. Thank you. Thank you have to listening to Paul finebaum show podcast. What about Tennessee?

"Whether we want to admit it or not have been somewhat strained by player skipping bowls. So the undertaker. Yeah. That makes a difference. Now, having your best corner. LSU didn't have their best corner either. They win the game. But they didn't have a lot of their guys. And that game still incomplete to me, I know LSU won. But it still felt a little and complete and Michigan. They don't have their two best players in Florida. Just run circles around them would have made a difference. I don't know. But I mean, it takes a little bit out of it for me, Paul when you don't have some of the best players playing, and I know it's not their fault. And it's their decision. But it's just how it is. Bill before we turn the page two weeks ago three weeks ago that the narrative everywhere was we're about to see playoff expansion, and then seemed like everything that could go wrong for that argument went wrong. Although we still know the president and the commissioners will meet Monday morning out in in California. Where are we right now? And are we going to see change in in the immediate future or not too distant future? Disconnect because everytime you talked to Bill handcock and some people involved there. They say there's not an appetite for it. When there seems to be an appetite from either those that miss out, or I I the those that want more the we're only five years deep in the fourteen Mira. And I think some of the expansion talk is brought on by the same teams getting into the plow over and over and over again. But to that point Paul if we had sixteen teams, don't you think Alabama and Clemson would still be the final two? I think that's the problem. We're dealing with in college football that when I talked to you in July. We were I was saying Alabama and Clemson for the title and had zero hesitation doing it. And I would probably say today, Alabama and Clemson next year unless something goes horribly wrong. There has been a conversation about here are two teams in the extreme southern part of the country playing in Silicon Valley. I know that that's really not what this is about the two teams play regardless of where the site is. But but do you think a three quarters or half empty stadium? Monday night matters very much to this college football playoff narrative. I think the ticket price stories getting over played a little bit because it's expensive to go out there. I mean, I live in Ohio are it's expensive to fly to California from Ohio. It's going to be expensive for the fans to go out there. And I think that is a little bit of a problem. The if there are a lot of empty seats that will get played a little bit. Now at this game was in Atlanta New Orleans, which it will be next year. This won't be a story at all. Because you're in a place where I mean, if you had Texas and Ohio State at New Orleans, you would think they could fill that up. So I do think this Bill the pack off couldn't come close to filling up its own championship game in this stadium. That's the Pac twelve issue. That's not an point is it's the schools were nearby. I mean, it's this is this is a tough place. This is not a good market for college football. And maybe that's one of the problems is they're trying to foresee it in places where it doesn't hit. I mean, we'll see when we get out there. What the interest level with Macao the end, but I'm gonna soom it's not very high. But you know, there's pockets in the south obviously and up here where I live in big ten country. If they had this thing in Indianapolis. I think a lot of fans from the south would come up here in vice versa. If it was Michigan and somebody in Atlanta in a championship that they're yes, they're going to travel..

Although you've been part of the staff. Has done it twice as not that anyone from the Clemson side is looking for an edge. But how do you beat Alabama? Well, you have to you have to get some turnovers we were able to do that especially on special teams in both games that we won. But offensively you have to run it. Well, enough you have to run it. Well enough to make them put the extra hat in the box. And then when they do that you have to be good enough at receiver to win those one on one matchups because you're going to have to at some point get some chunk plays. You're not going to be able to methodically drive down the field over and over and over again. So you got to look for ways to get some junk plays. And then I think I think you've got to find a way to get some turn. We just did a kind of a fun poll. But I think we had five she schools right now on the top ten. None of this is news to you.

"Dan Mullen, all of a sudden isn't changing his wages because Florida when a couple of bad weeks in a row, right? Even JIMBO Fisher who struggle the last couple of weeks jimbo's, not going to be like, well, we're gonna change in everything we gotta get rid of this. And I know their seasons haven't been as putrid as Florida state's has been, but I felt from day one even when about weeks three when he kind of brought that piece of paper up to the podium after a game and read it like a hostage thing. We are not showing enough heart in effort right now period space, like I feel like did we get sold a Bill of goods just because we saw him have success. It's south Florida against inferior competition and see just one year. We don't even know what we got out of Oregon. And now all of a sudden, we're finding out maybe. This wasn't the right fit. Or is that overreaction? Well that that's fair question. And it's also fair to say that JIMBO Fisher probably saw some writing on the wall. Not to mention giant check waiting for him. But I mean, clearly, it was an opportune time to leave Florida's state. And I don't think it was just because of what was offered on the other end. And you know, is it is it fair is over his head. Is he grasping at straws? Yes. Absolutely. But I think he also needs more than a twelve game, you know, resume to try and figure things out. So as far as the play calling. I mean, it can't get any worse. You do do whatever you want their hundred six in scoring right? It just seems like a such a desperation move in the middle of the year. Like, I feel like I remember Derek Mason who was who was trying to get away from being just a D coordinator when he took over vandy, and he. He tried to do it, all and guess what? He fully admits. Hey, man, I was in over my head like I need to give back to doing what I do best that makes me comfortable, and it got a little bit better for Derek Mason. But he he didn't change that in the middle of the season. But why is it desperation for Florida state? But it's like something that had to happen for Oklahoma to fire their defensive coordinator with the last name stoops by the head coach. The head coaches in involved. I mean and made that move too late. I mean, I to me it's more about what a head coach does. I mean, I follow the Chicago Bears here in anything. It's different in the NFL. And that Nagy who's the first year head coach calls the plays. I think it's very very hard to do that at the college level. There's too much else that you're responsible for is a college head coach that you can take over one side of the the play calling whether it's on usually it's the offense because most times coach head coaches or offensive minded, so yeah, I think it has more to do with with Taggart and kind of to Peter's point. I mean. Yeah. South Florida, not hard to win their Oregon. I mean, not hard to turn that around guys. And it wasn't like Oregon was a was a ten year bottom of the barrel program. They were in the national title came in two thousand fourteen so you he does deserve credit for what forgetting that thing. On course. But it wasn't the hardest turn around in the world. And then he gets this Florida state. Stay in the playoff too. They were they were. But, but, but but my point is when he got hired that that's what he did. He was he he'd been a pretty successful coach in the group of five and he had won fairly easy turnaround year at Oregon, and then everybody's saying, well, he's an obvious fit. This has got to be the guy Florida state's a really big job. It's hard to hard job. It's why JIMBO Fisher got out of there. And I completely agree that as of now, maybe we proven wrong as of now he looks over his head. I will say this. I sat with Joe of the director in his office this spring in Baton Rouge. And this was a lot of people were saying, hey owes over over his head. He's beyond his skis here, and he's not the right guy Ford, and Joel leva told me he goes now, let me think about this..

"Of. Previously we were talking about the preseason and maybe cutting that down and changing and adding games of the regular season in the NFL because Jerry Jones talked about that earlier today on a radio station in. Dallas I'm not for. That I think adding to the regular season stupid if anything add to the, playoffs but the regular. Seasons. Perfect the way it. Is I have been. Since We are talking college football along with the NFL tonight the constable has, no preseason right they. Kind. Of they have their. Scrimmages against each other Half. The team plays the other. Half by the ones that kind of stuff right so I have, a there's a there's an origins podcast out there it's called the origins podcast they've been going into a deep dive into what makes Alabama, successful and what makes Nick Sabin in his prospects process. Successful interviews with bear Jones and Greg McElroy and saving himself and all this and Alabama. The ones practice against the ones in pads every day. Now I know you can't, do? That in the NFL because of labor laws or whatever What are. You, frowning upon labor laws I'm just saying it's your job to your job every day I'm just saying collective bargaining agreement whatever do your job So In, college they wear pads and practice top guys against top. Guys every single day, go. Preseason we're ready to roll every week is a playoff week at you can't tell me that if Alabama loses to Louisville on Saturday night that their season's over it's almost, over they might still make the. Playoffs but if how about, this if Washington loses to, Auburn Saturday, afternoon Washington season is, over they will not make the. Playoff, yeah I I can guarantee that that's for. Sure. Okay surgery for some teams every week is. Apply that's what make college. Football. Great but my point is that they don't have, preseason they make it work so you don't just. Need you don't need to just substitute games with meaningful. Games don't add to the regular season in the. NFL there's no need for. It you could take away two preseason. Games would you as a season ticket holder pay the difference if they just got rid of two games and they added like five bucks to each because now you're just throwing it down the. Drain you're not even attending these. Games you're Not going to the preseason so if the. Regular season games are a little bit more expensive but. You didn't have to coding co pay for the. Preseason that's fine I think. That's a fair trade would you even. Notice it if the I mean obviously you'd notice if they added ten bucks each ticket but if that offset the overall cost is the same what does it matter it doesn't you don't go. To the games anyway it doesn't. Matter So what difference? Does it. Make I agree but the owners would. Never agree upon All the other things those,

"Let's get to something realistic and that's what's happening on the field in gainesville give us your view at a quarterback situation they're down to three now at four one of transferring is today's ago which was no big surprise he was not that for the system they've run and jake out he was more dropped back kind of guy was you know certainly was gonna play so but it's it's still another tenuous situation if you remember in jim mcelwain through two quarterbacks and and creole harrisonville will greer and eventually they were down to one quarterback and some walk onto so they're now in a situation where they've got three and one of the true freshman one of his never played college in one of the plate and wasn't very good college so it's still not a great situation i think a lot of people are that's why it's like i think the gator nation is excited energized by by dan mullen i think he's done all the right thing going and talking every chance he's gotten to go speak the people whether it's fraternities you know whether it's young people or people middle middle people everybody he's firing it up and he's got a lot of energy and doing the right things that way bringing them bringing the players back at one hundred seventy players at their barbecue on the day of the spring game florida's doing a lot of great things you know out there at the stadium to get people excited but that's still caveat do they have a quarterback and nobody knows for sure there's nothing we saw the spring game that was said oh wow they do they got this guy he's really good that just didn't happen they manufactured a lot of points touchdown passes to travis mcgriff in moments right and that tells you something right there but you know if he can figure it out between now and he's talked about it he's got to get a guy who's gonna get the work done about him watching you know basically between now and august fourth and then take over the job.

"Uh not as high as it is for uh jimbo fisher's first game neck or not is not nearly as high as it was for the snow fall last week in college station idea a good match up though i think ainum needs to worry about that but that wake forest theme with you know the transition here today and what they are doing gosh that's that's a tough one i monthly yeah billy we were talking about how maybe this is an opportunity will certainly is not for tunde for some of these younger players and really anybody on the saint mtm to kind prove themselves jimbo fissure with the extra bowl practices and everything around that you know this team really well who would you identify is maybe some guys that should impress jimbo well i think the number one on that list that he'll be watching most closely as as you guys know jimbo's history i i think it's gonna be next stockholder the quarterback i think that'll be the ones that he will probably have the most uh watchful eye on to see how he performed in wouldn't surprise me if he was watching you know the last game or two that ain't in play with the way these things go but stark oil and and i would honestly say uh that offensive line because they return a lot on defense offensively though is where i think you know that that's that's his background they know they're going to have to score points they know they're going to have to transition to a more power oriented uh offense so i i think he's going to have to go out and recruit tied hands as far as alarming quarterbacks go he's going to be keeping a real careful eye on what they do in that game because quite honestly i think he's got tough decision on where do you go these go recruit a quarterback this year.
