Hello logging there. What do you think. Augie i i mean i enjoy until i about the congressional medal of honor meeting. I thought it was just. It was just deplorable but it went to a different level after that. You know in. October of twenty twenty three army comes to baton rouge. Oh that is cool. Yeah but you know. I do understand where guys want to preserve their knees because Army they do die the guy's knees and they can knock you but maybe put the second team in. They should be able handle army. I think that's right. And i bet you. The fan base in knoxville is absolutely up in arms about this. I mean i can't believe anyway gets even more Cheesy is the fact that the guy who signed the contract and book. The new game tried to blame it on the old guy. Well you know you can thank for army coming about ruse joe alita so another decent thing he did. But i still can you. Do you remember when it wanted to hireling kissing. News offense coordinator a he desperately wanted to hire him. And i will tell you this. I know this quite authoritatively lane was going. You're kidding my. I'm not kidding you think glean would work for it before we say anything. Let me explain their background. Okay yeah please They are very close friends. They i thought the same thing. But i was corrected by the person that we're talking about right now they they both worked for pete carroll at usc when lane went to tennessee guess who was top coach was at odur ron laying left tennessee for southern cal. He took ed with him. And then of course. Ed succeeded him briefly in southern california. Oh i'll finish by saying when i once asked lane about coach. Oh because as he was getting the job i should. Do you think this is going to work. He said yes he said. Ed is a phenomenal coach. Okay i'm still waiting to see it. But i am listen. I'm not giving your opinions here. I'm just giving you facts now. No i know but you didn't send any hard feelings. That odom moved in behind kissing when he left. When i really don't because Kiffin should not have been fired at the time. Now that i know all the the store you he was a sacrificial lamb by the who was a weasel muskrat. Hey marie yesterday was. And i was just trying to prolong his own miserable. State us but speaking of prolonging misery. Paul i'm worried about matt. I mean he said that he was stood up by two different winning too. Yeah i thought. I thought i knew what was going on but i did not want embarrassment on on the show by by. It was obvious he was. He was dealing online. But i. i don't wanna judge anyone's dating habits. Well i'm wondering. He was really communicating with women. You just never know. That's the premiums concerned. Matt was going end up dead. Exactly yeah so speaking of twitter and getting people unblock ball and she worked a miracle with see sola jim. Can you talk to brando and get the unblocked not your guy. I cannot help you. Because i challenged tim as my friend of many many years. Why do you block people. And then he gave me a very long explanation. And i i. I've never blocked anyone on twitter. Because i just i just expect to be blasted on twitter. I mean that's that's what twitter is for. isn't it. well. I look at it this way. Anybody dumb enough to read anything hombre. Hey i'm honored by it. But paul i think there was a little abuse going on. I'm surprised the fcc hasn't called yet. I mean. I can understand i man jumping all over him and then talking about buzz aldrin. Be on the move but then mitch came in and mitch just savaged yeah I'm worried that you might get a reprimand from the director of the fcc but anyway one last comment bonex bone. Knicks reminds me john fourcade. Remember four yeah. I mean he he he do some amazing things but for for every amazing thing he would do he would do four negative things to equal. That one. amazing wasn't he yeah. He went to high school on the west bank. Remember quarterback and he wasn't bad at all but he had these moments where he just seemed like he lost his mind and even played for the saints during that strike. Down and remember. I've always liked bo. But i will tell you i. I started to hear some things that this particular coaching staff was was keeping him on a shorter leash. Well not not that we were led to believe he got pulled after four games. But he's he's been on a short leash from the beginning. I think well. I think he's one of those guys that if you don't have the right appetite you're not gonna think carson kinda guy who's got it but Do you think he's going to be there next year. That is no hartson is better be there. They're going to be to news. no. I don't think so all right. Have a good rest of the week.

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

Is LSU Handling the Sexual Assault Investigation Well?

"When you when you talk to commissioner it would be interesting if you could just asking if one is he keeping an eye on what's going on in the lsu athletic department and is this something that his office would possibly make a comment on or or or possibly take action on down the line of you'll probably not want to answer that. But i think it would i. I can't speak for him. But i would say that the monitors everything that goes on in the conference especially something like this and it's a shame that you have to have outsider dolts supervisions because at this point. I don't have a warm feeling. That hugh is the -sarily handling this well in. I know you're a big fan of scott woodward but would you not agree. That scott is now on the clock without a doubt. But i will also say this This is not an athletic department problem anymore. This is an institutional issue. Absolutely but it has fallen squaring into scott lap. Because verge ause berry and miriam ziegler person both work for him under his department correct and if he does anything less than fire them i don't think his reputations can overcome this. I know it will be the only thing. I don't know and i'm not. I'm not blindly defending him. Because i haven't spoken to him but i wonder in in light of how this decision in light of the investigation which is clearly in the interim president's hands how the decision was reached for the punishment of these two individuals who made that decision. And that's why at this point you can't come out and condemn woodward and you know crucify right. Is it. i don't think he's actually taken a position. And honestly i would fall on the floor to survived and it was at the behest of scott woodward i i just don't see him as the kind of person moral being to to let that happen. I mean best. It's a dereliction of duty of what those two did at worst it's enabling female abuse because of what they did so pick your point. Ask you a question Someone who lives down there and understands the law. Why do you think the suspension was given in the in the manner. Why why do you think they determine twenty one and thirty days you know. I don't know. And i don't know if there any state employment laws that say if you go past thirty as they have. Some civil service appeal right. No i can't say that Maybe thirty days in a month is just a good round figure who knows twenty one days three weeks. That's the best i can come up with. Not being an expert in louisiana labor law and then who knows what other things they may allege. They may alleged that you know a female minority. You didn't do this to the other folks so we're being discriminated against. They'll get an eeo complain out of the thing who knows. I really don't know. But i think there's a point where as even as a prosecutor if you're cases week but you think well you know a reasonable jury should convict these people leave it up to the jury to make the call and if they make the call then society has spoken and in this case. I think there's just massive outrage that these still have their jobs now. It's a shame that they're the only to post your children left but less miles can't be fired because he was already fired. Joe livas gone and we don't know if he really might be here. On all of this alexander king is gone the lsu supervisors. That's always been a cesspool in louisiana always been assessed pool and i mean at this point. I'm looking around for the moral voice. The moral compass of lsu. And i think you should ask the l. brown to come on and to at least make us feel good about lsu and that they're decent people in baton rouge and and i wanna say angela's done a great job with this recording. I know he's been covering lsu for years and and this obviously just he. He wasn't aware of it was covered up pretty good. Because i think it would have been something rabble would have picked up can see they were great links. Gone to within the lsu athletic department to cover this up. And i think if you had victoria jackson back on your show. She'd have a lot to say about this. Don't you think paul. Maybe we should have her back. I think so. I think she would at least provide some interesting commentary about this and it not just how it applies at lsu. But we didn't know this was going on. At least the fans didn't now of course people in the administration did and that's why we have a scandal today. 'cause didn't handle it properly but you know what's going on at a lot of other schools just intuitively. I would really like to know I would like to know. F king alexander's role in all this. Because he certainly was high and mighty in ripping the sec for playing football while he will oregon state and pac twelve or not and he was also if i remember correctly augie hugging on less miles after they beat texas. Am and clearly. The reason why joe alita had to back down on firing last miles in two thousand fifteen yeah and mossel opinion of joe alita has changed and it just shows you how those of us who are really not in the no. We're really ignorant relying on the media to give us the facts and in this case joe coming out history has proven him to be The good guy in all of this but the other one that i'm sure sitting back just watching it and keeping a low profile and it's glad that people are not talking about last football season. Is it all right and as much as you can say about it. He not at this point any scandals. Lsu and i'll take that any day over with less has given

"You know, hadn't talked in three months and came to come out and, and, you know, he was he expressed certainly remorse in. He seemed to be apologetic about some of the mistakes he made while he was suspended one getting suspended, you know, not meeting with LSU front even though that was under advice of counsel. He probably realizes. He should've had another council there. So and then releasing the statement criticizing LSU about a week into the suspension LSU they weren't. They weren't too pleased during that span. Paul. There was some missing some angry people. And I think it kind of came out in that press conference yesterday that will got pulled in, in told, hey, you, you need to go up there and NB humbled in be Apollo. Jetty because you made some mistakes. And, and that's what he did on on the on the other side you know, he wasn't forthright obviously, he didn't answer. He didn't answer a lot of questions that need answering the strong blink offer question. So it there was some good things. There was some some bad things if some disappointing thing with him not answering answer and everything. But it was just as we talked earlier off there. It was it was just kind of good that, that he did it, you know, and most surprising. In politics. We, we've seen it all day today with Washington, politics, where, you know, somebody has a different view than someone else. That's just the nature of partisanship. In college athletics is the Pitta me of tribalism. So I guess I ask you this question fan just called incident. I'm I'm from Baton Rouge. I don't care. I mean far as I'm concerned he's good. That's fine. But the question I have, and it's a, it's an opinion. It's based on a, you know, whatever you, you want to base it on, because it's hard to base, everything on fact right now, but how long is, is will Wade going to be the LSU basketball coach? Well, you know, I think you, you obviously, he's got a new boss, Joe alita out, which I think you can draw your conclusions there. Connect the dots. I mean it's not just coincidence, that had happened during all this. We'll wait and mice, it was the straw that probably broke the camel's back and, and you got a new boss. And then you've heard Scott Woodward when he's asked about. We'll wait. He he. He he walks the tight rope a little bit on it. You know he's coached for now. We want him to continue our coach. He's our coach for now. You, you hear a lot of that this thing's probably not over, you know, and then you see what the settlement agreement that will agree to, to come off of suspension. It'd be reinstated. I mean he, he didn't take two hundred fifty thousand dollars his incentive bonuses. And it allows LSU to get out of the contract with him if even he's found even if the NCAA just looks into it too deeply enough. You know, any kind of violence, any level, one level, two violation in LSU can can fire him and he agreed that he would not seek basically sue the school if that happened. So all of these factors tell you that, man, it's, it's kind of a precarious position right now, normally, you would think this would cripple him and recruiting. But he went out. They wanted Alabama and took a player from Alabama and other places one of the better players in the country. I'll try to ask this as straightly as I can. I mean I had to get that guy. Yeah. I wish I knew. You know, that's the thing in will was asked that yesterday about how, how will all this process, this situation of years affect or impact your recruiting going forward. And you know, that's when he started talking about how maybe he's too brash. And maybe he should recruit quieter. I guess in a way he talked about. Yeah. He rubbed some people the wrong way because of how brash she is. You know will is a relentless recruiter. He's aggressive, he, he loves to win those battles..

"This. You're listening to Paul finebaum show podcast. We welcome. You back. Glad you're with us. And Gwen Gilboa joining us as always Glynn so much has happened. It seems like every time we talk another bomb has gone off. Let's start if you don't mind with will weigh the news today that that he is not going to be compelled to testify. What do you know about that? And and what does it mean for his at least short term future? At LSU. Well, I think it's good news for we'll wait. But it's it's not as significant as as people think it as if you remember when he was first when word I happened that he may be subpoenaed to testify that was in February. And he he didn't get in any trouble with LSU over that. He was suspended a few weeks later in March because of the comments from FBI wiretaps in the sports story, and those comments still remain very damaging to him, and the NCAA is still going to investigate and and the and he's still involved in that FBI pro but mainland the NCAA now he's been have to testify, but you know, you may not have even had to testify about his recruiter. So that's that's kind of a side like that. He said he's gotten out of this the most important thing with him remain. The Danny comments he made in the story. I get to the next level of that. And that's the emergence now of Scott Woodward as the athletic director realized nobody knows what he's thinking. At least. We don't know what he's thinking in relation to will. Wade. But let's let's hear from you about the week. That was in Baton Rouge. The overthrow of a lever. Not not a surprise. Scott Woodward, joining the LSU athletic department, which did catch many people by surprise. Yeah. I think you know, we talked about a lever last time I was on the show. And I thought a leave of his contract would be extended and he would be done in about a year his contract ends in June of two thousand twenty. I thought you know, they exit him a little earlier than that like six months down the road. So they have time to find somebody, but they did this much quicker, and I can tell you this is this is separate of the entire will wait situation in basketball, this this has been coming on for a while. Donors for two supervisors men members. People closed LSU have been growing in numbers against the leave of he's been there. A long time ten years. It was time for him to retire said, Richard Lipsey who began tiger athletic foundation, and major donor. He had grown tired of Joe alita separate of the will wait situation. And I think what would my apotheosis is. What really tipped this to happen? Now is Scott Woodward became available, and I would bet Scott Woodward didn't wanna wait a year or six months to take over and wait for Jolie to end his contract. I think Scott would wanted to take over now. And I think that's part of what happened. Glen, you're pretty plugged into on there. How do you think this came about? I know that he took the job. But I mean, how how deep does his roots go there, and I'm assuming pretty deep, and and how were they able to pull this off? And then they seem to the seemingly did it. Without anyone knowing what was going on. Exactly. And that never happened around. Phil issue often. You know, we find out what they're doing while they're doing before they're doing it. Because they they can't keep a secret, you know, word leaked out that Mike Archie was going to be fired weeks before he was back in nineteen ninety. You know, word leaked out that Joe Aleve wanted to buy Joel liba that then they wanted to fire less miles a few years ago, and you could be more efficient when you work plan destiny. And that's what L S you did this time and LSU made sure they had Scott Woodward coming then they fired Joe elite or or head them resigned..

"Bergh Adam would jeopardize Zillow put it put together. Real nice piece. Looking literally at every angle of this Scott will to Texas AM LSU story, some intriguing stuff first of all Adam thanks for joining us. Good to have you shop. Great to be with you. Tony. All right. Let's start here. Big picture thirty thousand feet, Adam. What what was your first takeaway when you heard the Scott Woodward who had put together this juggernaut of an organization at Texas AM? He suddenly decides that he wants to go home. And oh, by the way, Joe alita just got shoved out the door to another job. What was your first reaction to all of that? Sure, Tony why I would say the part about a lever was not a surprise. That was something that was likely coming sooner rather than later. His stock had been falling know really for several years. Among some of the key folks at LSU, which is you know, is a very politically charged environment. As are many of the top programs around the country. But it just didn't never say it seemed like a lever was going to be long for that job. Especially after the situation involving men's basketball. Coach will Wade last month obviously into this month with his reinstatement. And so elite being out was not a surprise to think for me and those in the industry surprise came with Woodward taking this job not because he didn't have love for LSU or was it from Baton Rouge. But you know, the say an M situation at least from the outside looks a little bit more stable largely because of Scott Woodward than the one at LSU. Text say 'em has an established elite level football coach, JIMBO Fisher. They now bring in buzz Williams the coaster. Men's basketball program money has never been an issue there. So why leave that program for LSU where certainly at ores Ron had a nice year last year. But there's questions about him long-term. There's certainly a lot more questions about the men's basketball program. So that that was where the surprise was not so much that alita was out or moved to another part of the university. But that that Scott Woodward really wants to take on this challenge. LSU Adam based on the reporting that you, and you Jeff did I fear is an his strictly theory..

"He needs them think about just walking into the will wait which way shin right now is made. I mean, I know I know I listened to him on earlier. And I know it sounds like it's all resolved and stuff. But there's part of me that sitting there going how much of that might be contractual. And just kind of you know, they can't just let him go right now. I to me it just seems like you're leaving Kush situation for one that that has its fair share of of issues and instability and uncertainty. But again, I mean, this is something I, you know, Scott, I know Scott, it's not an oh, he's not going to make no night. No, no. He's gonna limit. It wasn't Billy. I I can't. Thank you enough. I know you're in the middle of a breaking story. But thank you very much for being with us can tell you this day trade coaches a lot between shavers and Woodward and they almost did with a random. I know that Texas they will not be idling Joa liba. No. We have that. I'm sure buzz Williams and JIMBO Fisher will probably skip the farewell party for Scott Woodward who brought both of them in. Hey, thanks, Billy. We'll talk to you tomorrow. Paul. Thank you. I mean talking about a bombshell on a day of multiple bomb show. You could see a leva getting fired. But before that the ink was even dry on the statement announcing that he's moving on to this assistant to the president's role. Whatever the victim, Billy Lucci just broke on this show. A story that said Scott Woodward is definitely going back. According to his sources makes us even more stupefied. You're listening to the Paul finebaum show podcast. Ralph Rousseau joining us the college football writer for the Associated Press Ralph it has been a busy day down here with Joa livas removal, and the likelihood of Scott Woodward going from AM to LSU as we say Hello to you. Good afternoon in your reaction to all of this. Yeah. Busy day in LSU. You know, the Aleve thing has sort of been percolating what for like three or four years now. I mean, I essentially starting with him trying to oust less miles at the end of I guess it was the two thousand sixteen season. I'm getting a little blurry here. And it wasn't that LSU fans necessarily. We're sad about trying to get rid of let's miles. It just that they did it in such an awkward and disrespectful way and ever since. Then it hasn't been a very good look for Aleve. I think that he has not been a very popular guy at LSU. And then the we will the will Wade thing happened this year again the fans come down on a lever. So that wasn't necessarily shocking, and nor is it shocking. That Scott would would would be the replacement because he is a Baton Rouge guy with ties to the school. The fact that it happened. So quickly clearly says that you know, maybe a hat to LSU that it had all of us in a row here and wasn't just going to, you know, No, not. not the nicest thing to do to Joe alita to negotiate with his replacement before he even out the door. Nonetheless. I think it inefficient day for LSU if they can get this all tied other way, or less less miles on line. One thing if the terrible thing to do he agrees with you. It by the way. Scott Woodward has such a deep ties that community not only did he work as Mark emerets right hand man, when he was the chancellor at LSU, but he was also in the political consulting business air for a number of years. So it might lotta people would say why does anyone want to get into that morass?.

"It's not clear, and and you know, last time I checked I mean, Alabama. I think we all keep waiting for them to take a step back. We waiting for. They did they lost a game last year. I yeah. I mean, you know, and then oh that staff turnover is going to catch up with them sooner or later, is it really I mean, you know. And yet. So I, but I do think based on the last two games. You just see how the last two games came to these programs or head to head from a competitive standpoint. And it's just gonna take one time, you know, for Georgia's to to be able to get over that hump. And if they do I think, you know, everything is there waiting for them. But they've got to get through Alabama. And I think they'll have that opportunity again the here again, Georgia's there in Kirby has done a great job. But that the issue right now is the rest of the east is not able to to hang and I don't see that happen this year. I think Florida's still has work. Do I think Tennessee definitely has worked to do in the rest keys as work to do to to upset that right now. And in the meantime, there were just holy fixated on on Obama. You told the truth right there at the end ship, and we get it. And for good reason. Why why shouldn't they be well? Yeah. And and look, I I think Kirby downplays relationship Nick save, and and his time there and everything now, I think we're starting to see a little bit of a push away though behind the scenes that yes interesting remarks as past week if the Athens touchdown club, you know, that I heard secondhand. And what it what it and saying, well, I mean, I just I just think he's starting to push away from the mothership. You know what I'm saying? You know, this is mine, and and and we're doing things our way we're not necessarily doing everything the way that they did it Alabama. We've got our own way of doing things, and and you just since that that separation, and and, but I think he takes very very serious in in wanting to be able to beat the mentor, and they downplay it, and they talk about it every time they made it. And each other. But I think behind the scenes that's a driving force for thirty smart. No doubt chip towers joining us. Thank you very much gray tabby on.

"Really cares. CB is in Tuscaloosa, go right ahead. How you doing today, sir? Cbi always great having on good. Thank you, sir. You know, this LSU soap opera, you know. I know we'd beaten to today. But and I've heard folks say, well, you gotta look at his contract. What isn't it? What an anybody's contract. Mr Paul that you you can pay to play in u. And they got you on tape it that don't work does. I mean, you gotta be fired. Well, yeah. I mean, I seems like he should have been fired weeks ago. But I I think when it all comes out, we're we're going to find out that the Joe alita was really the wizard of Oz behind the curtain, but people were pulling strings and. He probably would have fired. Wade six weeks ago, but he was told he couldn't. Let's call one more thing about the spring game out Obama. It's hard to tell in the spring games. I know, but this I'm also met Jones bone now. I know two starting quarterbacks both to eat those darts a dead. You say snakes David throw darts was sodas to he's tough. And but I want about Matt Jones if he don't get to start next you've got two kids. We're gonna have a lot of quarterback stuff. I heard a lot about that about MAC and to his brother in Tyson. But I mean, it's way too early to know whether there is a heir apparent back there or not. Hey, thanks for the call. Great to hear from you. John in Memphis is up next. Hey, John tape ball. Thanks, take them a call. When I am UT graduate pharmacy school seventy seven now. Maybe I missed something. But this forthrightness of Rick Barnes. How would it look two weeks from now if somebody in LA broke the story about UCLA quarter? Was that British before he made his an outfit when no what happened yesterday? I think was he just somebody. He was at a press conference. They asked him was it a close call. He said, well, he probably would have gone, but you know, he had a five million dollar buyout and UCLA wouldn't pay it. Same thing happened to. To say, Jamie Dixon at TCU. Okay. One more thing. Everybody's talking about. Well, we're going to go with them until you lose the game in you name. Tennessee basketball started next year with the whole the whole starting team gone. Well, it depends. It depends on whether anyone comes back after they get their reports from the NBA. But if they all get good grades. No. I couldn't do it. So I don't think it'll take too long, then lose you. I think the program is in good shape, but good shape, but good shape in the SEC. Means you could go from second or third to eighth or ninth. Very quickly. Hey, thanks for the call. Good to have you on. Dave and Baton Rouge is up next. Hello, dave. Hey, paul. How are you doing? Well. Dave, thanks for the call. Why are you know, I told you for weeks ago? This was going to go down. And you thought I was crazy. Doesn't surprise me. The lever is is is done. And it's not going for prize me that Steve comes back from AM to be our athletic director, the Miami, Mr. Brando was speaking. He's he's got the pockets and more Poolville be booked written about him and movies about him one day. And I'm telling you, he's. The this is oh to lose.

"Right. So even though there may be behind Michigan. I in terms of chance to meet the playoff ju just because it's scheduled. There's no question that when we talk about the things that we like about Alabama we like about Clemson. We like about Michigan talking about stability at quarterback and head coach Georgia has all of those things. It's obviously done a nice job in the recruiting department over the past couple of years. And so they'll that all goes into it. And so yeah, absolutely. I think that Georgia is in. Pretty good chance. It is a pretty good position to make the playoff again, especially because the SEC could get two teams. So once we get past these four chef who is nipping at the heels next. I think the interesting team here is another SEC team in LSU. Well, and I think that people don't think about them really as being a contender because you consider. Well, they gotta go to Tuscaloosa, they're in the same division as Alabama. So how's that possibly going to work? Well, there's two things to remember one don't round down their chance to beat Alabama two zero look low. We put it about a one in four shot. But that's not nothing. It is possible. They could do it. It is possibly could win the division. But we've also seen teams from that very same division reached the playoff even if they only go eleven in one, and I think that's possible for LSU. Look is a really good team. If their defense is going to lead the way, but I think Joe borough is overlooked in terms of his play last year. He. Finished fourteenth in total QBR. I mean, there are guys that are were lower on that list that I've gotten a lot of hype this this offseason Sam etlinger was behind Joe borough. And so I think the LSU really could sneak up on some people this year shows how how how deep do you rank? I mean, your your group how far down do they go? Well, we go all all one thirty. But you know, there's not that many teams that actually have a chance to win the national championship. I mean, I think we had it at nine teams of at least a one percent shot to win national championship. And and so I think you there's a lot of longshots he'll teams you have one percent to reach the playoffs. That's that's all possible. But yeah, I mean, we got one thirty if you need your no, I was just thinking of you know, someone. Outside of this conversation who might be worth putting two bucks down on. Oh, gosh. Yeah. I mean, I think that. Well. I think there are when we compare to Vegas. There are teams that we are longer on. And then the oddsmakers Michigan LSU and Clemson three teams. We've already talked about are are those teams in terms of like total longshots. I'm not sure I mean teams surprise me. We have UCLA at one point one percent chance to make the playoffs that would blow me away. But I suppose at a hundred to one anything could happen. Always fascinating. So Jim Harbaugh probably not happy about the pressure. But after all your five he deserves it. Great to have you on chess. We'll talk soon. Thanks, paul. So there you go LSU right outside, but Alabama. Thank you. Appreciate it guys in Georgia inside the top four. We'll take a break. Get your reaction with that. Joe alita still nothing official from Baton Rouge, but speculation rampant he is done. Just two days after reinstating we'll way lots of talk about we'll be right back to listening to Paul.

"All I've been told fishery is that it's very, you know, well known much loved high, you know, highly respected figure in the college athletic world. The Dallas Morning News is reported. Alrighty, that you know, Scott Woodward is is the man that many beliefs that will be, but he has not told his people at Texas ain't him yet. And no-one at LSU has said that get just routes for people understand Scott Woodward, who by all accounts is one of the best athletic directors in the country. We just talked to him a week ago on this program will some of you outside of that Rouge or college station, maybe asking why Scott Woodward will Scott grew up in Baton Rouge. Went to LSU has worked at LSU. He worked here under Mark emirate and went with Mark Emmers to Washington, Mark. And of course, now, the president of the NC double A, Stephanie, I realized so much of this is unknown at this point. But this board of supervisors would it have been there. Call to make or would it or was it king Alexander the president who subsequently made the call. How do you think it went down? Well, mccreavy the board of supervisors can't fire killer leaper, so technically it wouldn't be there. Call to make by the letter of the law, but whether they pressured king Alexander to make that decision whether there were higher up political forces involved, which some have have said like in, you know, at the state highest levels of state government, technically, no, the board did not force him out. But did the board apply pressure and did others? In state government apply pressure. I think it got to the point where the writing was on the wall and everybody could see it. If that makes sense your stuff in the mean, we're talking about that Rouge here. Nothing nothing makes sense. But you, but you've done a great job of trying to make sense out of it all, and that's why we were so eager to have you on Stephanie. Thank you, a quite a scoop by you and your publication, and we always enjoyed chatting hope you'll come back. Thank you so much have a good afternoon, Stephania RIA. We've talked to over her in the past. And again today, she broke the story of a couple of hours ago that Joe alita is out nothing official yet from Baton Rouge. But then again, you probably wouldn't expect that. It is it is going to be a long day. And I'll tell you I rarely about seeing a report of someone's demise cheered on more than this one. I think we for those of you have watched the show in the past. Joe liba was not a very popular man in Baton Rouge. In fact, the Stanley Jacobs who was a former LSU board member gave a quote to Glenn Guilbeault disaster. Noon saying I tried to take him out years ago. But I swung and missed. And now it looks like the board in administration have finally got it. If the story is true, I tried fervently to take him out. Well, I joked with a friend of mine today that of of the greatest days in history would this one rank anywhere near Billy cannons. Punt return, and the LSU graduate said, yes, it would rank pretty high up there. Just to show you the unpopularity of Joel Eva. And certainly all of us all of those all of us who have been countered him throughout the years. Wish him. Well, we'll take a break. Eight five five two four to seven to eight five. We have a lot more to do on the show before we head to the break. We'll get to your calls a lot of guests. But this has been the big story in Tim Brando, who chip us off last night at nine thirty saying he heard a lever was on the verge of getting fired. But we didn't have a show. There wasn't much. We could do with it. Tim will join us in a little while as well. We have a lot to do on this Wednesday afternoon..

Hello lee. Paul the I think the word that should be focused on until Aleve. A statement is integrity. You know, kind of. No, no matter what you go with that. I I have really hard time believing that he's just completely an because of an informant so integrity should never come out of his mouth and anybody ever ask. Why they're continuing problems in any sports, the college basketball or football because everybody gets away with what they're doing somehow or another. I mean, what prevents a player from Keating? They don't they don't punish him. They punish the tips that have nothing to do with. You know, once I wanna know about is I want to I'm a coke, Tim Brando from from last night where I will start believing these people down there, that's will way that's his attorney. That's Joe alita when they quit hiding behind statements. And they meet the media and take questions and don't run away because until then it's all a bunch of garbage. Oh, I agree. Unfortunately, I don't think I'm going to stay it anytime soon or any of us. There's just such a cloak and dagger about all of the things that go on in college sports, you know, especially the all sports. But anyway, that was whereas thanks so much. Appreciate mad is in San Antonio. What do you got Matt contact by spring football game fall? But I wanted to talk about the thing of burning down Notre Dame.

It took about two hundred two hundred some odd years to build it has been at the epicentre of European and world history since then so I would I would spend some time on that. Matt. I liked what I own springs Bafokeng phone. Okay. I like detached they take your saying in the secondary is got a really better this year, JIMBO Fisher last year, we pay mice Jekyll and Hyde.

He's not smart enough to be one. And this is simply them wanting short term gain, regardless of the long term costs. Would you agree? I would totally agree. This was this one.

Good afternoon to you, Paul if I can get a yes or no aunt if it's possible, it might give me a second SAS my second question. So I'll try can can the NCAA penalize LSU, regardless of of what the outcome is FBI. Take thing is because of the actions of of coach, wait. Yes. Okay. Could that have anything to do with LSU probably having a tough time trying to poke you a competent coach right now. I mean, they could have I would think if it's not legally can approach people agents and beginning negative vibes. Is that possible? Sure. Yeah. Listen to me all y'all yet to these things are very simple there. Couple of executive search firms out there that you could call and get a list of candidates and have them already working on the due diligence and besides you can also eighties have relationships with with agents. And that's that's part of what they do. They meet with agents all the time. And hey wh-. What about this guy? What about that guy? I would think Joe Aleve already has a list. Now the question is can you convince someone to take that job? If you believe if they believe I should say that LSU is going to get hit by the NC, double A, right? Right. So so so basically Paul is it possible there waiting to finalize the way decisions based on the fact that they just simply think once they do that. And they don't get anybody. They really want. Then the fans really gig. It get a little upset. Do you think? That's I think they very well, maybe waiting for someone it's possible that they they have someone targeted that just takes awhile. I I I don't wanna give Joe alita too much credit because frankly, doesn't really deserve it. Okay. Well, I appreciate fall in and look human jaw the final four and we'll see next week. Thank you skipping, right. Past friday. That's okay. I don't mind read is up next in North Carolina. Hillary. Hello. Paula abdul. An in reference to you. Mentioned in about you tie ROY way of should retire. Why do you think you have the right to tell somebody when they ought to retire read? I don't have the right to tell anyone what they should or shouldn't do. And I'm not doing that here. I offered an opinion. Which is what I'm supposed to do as a talk show host. Okay. Well, maybe it should offer opinion about coach caver retiring because he had pro playoffs and he couldn't he couldn't even get into final four. Well, he made the day. He made the made the elite eight last year while ROY was getting blown out on North Carolina soil. Well, let me ask you a question. What are you North Carolina fans so sensitive about about ROY? I mean, it's listen he's a good coach, but he should have retired after he won the national championship which is university bought for him to the tune of about twenty three million dollars in legal fees. And since then it's it hasn't been all that great in the NCAA tournament last year was bitter disappointment this year was a bitter disappointment. And if you want. Roy Williams and quit trying to compare yourself to do. Well, why shouldn't we do last year? And we had him on the road. We should be mean in Chapel Hill. Did you re read by one point? About one point. I don't listen. I don't care about second-place finishes. Okay. I don't think they give a trophy for that. And not and not the past is you've always come by the way, ROY re has your has your women's program doing Chapel Hill. I don't know what's going on with today's.

Thank you, very very much. Good afternoon. Good afternoon. Paul thanks for taking my call. I thought the statement from coach will Wade was kind of ridiculous. And with everything that's going on. He stressed is constitutional right to remain silent. And I I would just think that the university is well within. That's right says suspend them until they find out what's going on. And part of that process is hearing from the guy who's on a federal wiretap. And until that happens. I don't see him. I don't see him ever coming back to LSU. It'd be honest with you. And I think the those fans who want him back deserve. Whatever carnage comes and result of all this happening. Yeah. You know, Greg. I don't wanna go constitutional lawyer here. But. The constitution has nothing to do with why he has been suspended, and ultimately likely to be fired by LSU, the one thing he hasn't done, and you alluded to it. He has yet to say, I didn't do it. I mean, he's talking about your mumbo jumbo lawyer, and legal ease, and that's not going to keep his job. He's not coming back to LSU. You know, the school can say we want him back. You're not both know that train has left the station. Yes, sir. And you had think his name is Dan Jackson all the attorney on a couple of days ago. Yeah. Dodge Jackson, Don Jackson. Yes. He he he was very telling and his critique of the whole situation, and you know, when he's more well versed in the sports field than most attorneys are when he says that he wouldn't advise his client to do that. You know way is just really lost any any ground that he had any ability to take the high ground and today would have been a perfect opportunity to put this all to rest, and he did not so. Face value. We have a cheater wanting his job back, and it's not gonna have Greg. Let me ask you this. I thought maybe Jay Bilas made the best point are most salient point of the week when when he has to LSU officials like what what were you what were you doing back in October when this story came out, and you went to will Wade, and he denied it all did you not do any independent?

"With Gregg our good friend in Athens, Alabama, Greg. Thank you, very very much. Good afternoon. Good afternoon. Paul thanks for taking my call. I thought the statement from coach will Wade was kind of ridiculous. And with everything that's going on. He stressed is constitutional right to remain silent. And I I would just think that the university is well within its rights suspend them until they find out what's going on. And part of that process is hearing from the guy who's on a federal wiretap. And until that happens. I don't see him. I don't see him ever coming back to customer LSU. It'd be honest with you. And I think the those fans who want him back deserve whatever carnage comes and results of all this happening. Yeah. You know, Greg. I don't wanna go constitutional lawyer here. But. You know, the constitution has nothing to do with why he has been suspended, and ultimately likely to be fired by LSU, the one thing he hasn't done, and you alluded do it. He has yet to say, I didn't do it. I mean, he's talking about your mumbo jumbo lawyer, and legal ease, and that's not gonna keep his job. He's not coming back to LSU. You know, the school can say we want him back. You're not both know that train has left the station. Yes, sir. You had his name is Dan Jackson, the attorney on a couple of days ago. Yeah. Don jackson. Don jackson. Yes. He he he was very telling in his critique of the whole situation, and you know, when he's more world versus the sports field than most attorneys are when he says that he wouldn't advise because the client to do that. You know, weight is just really lost any any ground that he had any ability to take the high ground and today would have been a perfect opportunity to put this all to rest, and he did not so. Face value. We have a cheater wanting his job back, and it's not going to have let me ask you this. I thought maybe Jay Bilas made the best point or most salient point of the week when when he has to LSU officials like what what were you what were you doing back in October when this story came out, and you went to will Wade, and he denied it all did you not do any independent? Investigation, and it doesn't appear they did very much. And it's at point. We'll Wade did what all people do they denied denied. And I and it's come back to haunt him. Now. I mean, there's nowhere for him to go. The best thing for him to do is shut up and try to avoid any more serious. Jeopardy in this federal trial. But there's just no way that that he's involved any longer with LSU, and I ran into some LSU play. I happen to be staying hotel where every SCC team is. So it's it's really good to pick up information. I was talking to Annella player today. I won't name him. And they seem pretty confident. I mean, they feel like they know what's going on there. They're still hopeful to get your smart knack for tomorrow. They feel good players are resilient as you know. Yes. The fans are right about one thing Paul. And that is that Joe alita has a lot to answer for regard to this. And he has been silent. Thank you so much. He does we'll we'll wait was his best hire at. LSU? Hey, thanks for the call. Do appreciate it. John is up next. John you're on the air from California gerrad had a very happy. The Gators won. They look really good today. Freshman took the challenge on and I'm very happy. But I heard you comment that we're still possibly on the bubble that what I heard from the team at the SEC network was that would probably in because of the because of the overall record and what we've done with LSU beat them. And then we almost beat them at home. So that that stands for a little bit..

"You look at ESPN dot com coach's hotseat rankings, and there's that name CBS sports the same thing. There's that the power rankings LSU's in the middle of the pack if has LSU's over under at seven wins. I mean, it's it's hard to ignore all of that. So I if that's where the season settles, then it's going to be very interesting what the leadership of the department and the university is a whole elect to do if they stay the course, if they decide to make a change. Now I feel all of that is premature right now because like let's see if they go out a week from Sunday and they'd beat top ten Miami. A lot of this noise gets flushed man, but they lose to Miami in two weeks later, they lose to Auburn and you're a two loss before you get talk Tober. And if you want to tell us you over schedule and then what's coming in November with Alabama could heating. There's no doubt in in by the way we, we've been talking about this for a long time. You talk about it more than we do Matt, but at this point, is there anything left to be said, is it or is it just a matter of trying to get this win in a number of days? I look, I. I think what happens between now and the opener relative to all of these this off the field, I hate to keep referring to it as noise because we're talking about legitimate charges. Paul Tyler Taylor, the linebacker. I mean, he's charged with with with two felonies. He's accused of driving getaway car at a at a at a upon shop burglary where they stole weapons. I mean, that's like you're talking about if this kid is convicted, you're talking about life altering ramifications. I'm not an anyway trying to make light of that, but you, you try to contextualize things. Okay, that's what's happening here. But if you're just talking about a football conversation like that, Miami game, so big because I don't think they're winning off or not. I don't. I don't know how this team is young as they are inexperienced their offense is going on the road at your hair, winning that game. So if they can beat my. Emme and had that notch in the Bill earlier it. It comes so much of the noise and at least makes you feel like, okay, this team has potential to play with the big boys on schedule. So I'm I am firmly focused from football standpoint, say, look, September second, Arlington, LSU's going to have a massive crowd advantage over Miami. They got a really good defense mellitus years, been inconsistent as a quarterback. If all of those things fall LSU's way, they win that game. Then then the narrative around this program starts to change this year. But if you lose that game, that's where I think you really start to get into some some dangerous territory before you could get October. And let's assume that that happens. What are the most serious questions that you think you you others? Fans will be raising. I mean, Paul, you can't go any. I mean, when I was there and Atlanta with with you immediately as everyone was asking about about Joe alita, the director and how he had who were aligned. And I look when Joe's not dumb. He knows when he hired owes Ron. He knew his legacy is tied tiring at ocean. So that's, that's the question I got asked that at sea media days and every interview I did, and that's what every LSU fan wants to know. And I think gasoline got poured on that fire little bit. Paul when the new board of supervisors had their meeting in June and they, they did not rubber-stamp. One of the contracts at LSU tried to push for the women's basketball coach, and they also did not extend Joe leaves deal. So in a sense to kinda lame duck AD and it's it feels very much like everyone who is in a position of of making. They're waiting to see what happens with this football season because it it's, it's very. Obvious if things don't go, well, people in charge or prepared to make changes what those are. If it's if it's an ethnic richer, if it's the coach, if it's corners, I, I don't know. I could speculate like anybody else could, but it's it's hard to, nor those very tangible signs that are everywhere around this program right now. Men..
