"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..

"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. Listening to the Paul finebaum show podcast the news breaking at quite a pace today. We now know it is a fish oil that Joe alita is leaving LSU the school making it official just moments ago with more statements king Alexander. We are grateful to Joe for his years of service and dedication to LSU under his leadership. LSU athletics has become even more nationally competitive and our our student athletes have reached new levels of academic achievement. Leyva had this to say the eleven years Anne, and I have been here in Baton Rouge have been some of the best in our lives. We have made life long, friends and memories in Louisiana. This is truly a special place. It's been an honor to serve LSU and I'm proud to continue to do. So. In a new role. So now that that's official the speculation all over the map about what will happen next. Scott woodward. Of course is a Baton Rouge native. He's a graduate Avila shoot. He just has made two of the biggest hires in modern SEC history with JIMBO Fisher, and then two weeks ago buzz we we had him on the show nine days ago talking about the future of Texas M athletics.

"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. And as it gets, and you gotta governor trying to get reelected right now. And you got money people putting pressure on him.

"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.

"And common sense told me he wouldn't have his job much longer. But commonsense. You would certainly think not. I mean, he given giving those facts if the facts were true that he's heard saying this on a telephone conversation, right, obviously, obviously that that would jeopardize your job. But what are the things? That's interesting is the young man they were talking about Giovane smart. He's superficially Bennett for one game. Then all of a sudden he's back. So somebody had to know something because an investigation doesn't take one day. So obviously somebody knew something was amiss to let device marks come back and play in the team. What do you feel about that? Right now, you're you're you're you're the leader in the clubhouse rining because you told me something the other day, and as implausible as it sounded at least part of which he said has come to fruition. So I'm going to sit back, and listen and gather as much information as I can. And then go beat my head against the wall. Because that's how I feel about. This case Lee is up next in Seattle. 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.

A couple of weeks ago you had a older gentleman. Call you and tell you in his opinion, the real reason for them firing.

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.

"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..

"But I can just tell you that that LSU fans feel as though they are consistently disrespected by the SEC office. There is a belief that there's a a conspiracy against LSU that a fish that LSU end up on the wrong end of calls more often than not, and no matter how much evidence you might present. Like. Kellyn Mons me on the ground while he's holding the football like, it sucks. The call went against you. But these ground. An SEC network shot of mon- spiking the ball balls on the ground. And there's one second all the play clock. Like, he's art. These aren't subjective calls that went against you. These things in the heat of the moment that that were, you know, close plays that you know, all in aggregate combined to to contribute to lose the game. But the bigger issue Paul is. Is one that is very hard to explain but LSU fans as a collective whole feel like they end up drawn the short straw BSE in this goes back to the permanent opponent thing where LSU doesn't like being permanently. Get matched with with Florida. They did not like all those years having to play Arkansas on the Friday at the things giving there's there's a litany of things LSU not being allowed to play night games. Like is their tradition and having to play in the day. There's there's a litany of things that this fan base is convinced itself works against them. And that the league offices in Birmingham favors, Alabama, and it's just an rambling Paul. But like, it's a it's a never ending narrative. And when things like Saturday happened it just adds to the narratives. Me. Let me bring this up because the director and vice chancellor down there. Joe alita has been an antagonistic. He went against the grain couple years ago in the Florida dispute whether he was right or wrong. I mean, he certainly did not play ball with the SEC. And that's not the first time does this play into that narrative, though. Because many on the other side have have found LSU to be completely uncooperative on on a number of issues. Sure, totally understand the question. Joe Joe leave has been very outspoken..

"A game is late nine fifteen eastern local time, eight fifteen in Baton Rouge, but that's still early for the folks down in the by you. Let's get back to the calls at eight, five, five, two, four, two, seven, two, eight, five. Gerry is in Texas, and you're on the air. Paul, thanks for taking my call, love your show, longtime lifter, all the time. And now I watch it every day on TV. Thank you. LSU had our big LSU fan, but they've been having trouble the dog on game clock. It's the second year in a row, and I'm just wondering your thoughts. When the Olympic game clock goes off or they or malfunctions and the and the time has kept on the field with dead, not give an advantage to team with a hurry up type out. The answers opposed to as opposed to traditional. I'll say it seems like, but let me ask you this because I haven't noticed how long has it has this? What's or what's the long way was gone on? Went out Saturday night at about the about two third quarter, and they kept the time on the field for the rest of the game. Okay. This happened last year too. So I was just wondering if you have a if you've got Joe alita on your speed doll, you could put a word is here to get pretty much everyone but him I must be though. One of the thing you had you had helped a you had on your call on your show few couple of weeks back talking about how Laudi. Oh yeah, and Saturday. This coming Saturday night. They're unveiling a statue of Billy cannon outside the stadium, and I listen to the game back in fifty. Nine, I get is your Dow's about ten years old on us, car radio and I and I'm and I help Laudi had called was the announcer for that game. I looked it up on the internet and I couldn't find out who the amount of. So why don't? Why am I thinking it would have been John Ferguson? Maybe that was later that was before his time. Okay. That was before him. John Ferguson doing deli football games was simply unbelievable to listen to. Yes, he was great. He was great and Jim Hawthorne too. I mean, I I when I was coming up, I listened to a new gym very well. I did not know John, but I, I'm gonna have to. I'm gonna have to ask someone to help me on that one because I do. I'm sure Tim Brando would know they showed the the replay of the canon. Run back every. Have you heard back ole Miss Taylor? She robbery that was the biggest rivalry LSU had for years years. It was when I was in school and and of course it kind of it kind of mellowed out a little bit because unless you had at one, you know, went into a downscale, but now it's getting back, but I'm, I'm a little. I'm a little apprehensive about ole miss with with their passing game. You never know were there. Let's own this capable. I just I was really disappointed now. Maybe you shouldn't measure yourself against Alabama, although you have to. But. The. Tech attack. That was a really good start to the season. But I mean, they they have. They have everything that you need authencity. And they can get it going. I mean, those wide receivers will match up with anyone in the country. But I I like LSU but. Almost can can can can scare you a little bit. I just don't think defensively they have anything close to being able to stop LSU. Well, it'll be it could be a tough game. Thanks for the call it. It is a great rivalry and it's not what it was, but it's still as an old time SEC fan, you stop and take notice of certain games and that would be way way high on the list. Steve is in Lexington..

"I got a good Lord for this would if Texas loses to Maryland mum need isn't gonna warm up, really to come on your to. There's a, there's a, there's a bad joke to be made there, but I'm too much of a good guy not to make Maryland is in total disarray there. Shambles right now, if if Texas goes up there and losers, I second consecutive year, look at Texas is scheduled coming up guys. Okay. They play Adam Renton birds, mighty USC Trojans week three, the greatest team in college football, so they would definitely lose that game. And then they play PC you at team. They boldly beaten once since TCU joined the big twelve. I referenced this that yesterday, you know what the average margin of victory for. TCU in those games is twenty five points. So I don't know that they would be favored to win that game. They go to Manhattan a place. They never win, Texas never wins in Manhattan. And then they had the Oklahoma game guys. The wheels could fall off the wagon really quickly, Texas loses Maryland. You can give me a chance to answer the question of do I know that imagine a victory because I do I listened to the podcast yesterday. All right, Allie that look at that loyal listener matching let go. The seat will get hot very quickly. Who is it for me? It's coach. Oh, just because then you have a game two weeks later at Auburn. We remember what the last time the last time LSU went to Auburn and they lost what happened to the coach guys. He was fired and I'm not saying that's going to happen with coach, oh, but there would be significant pressure, you know? So early in the year, both on Ed orange Iran, as well as Joe alita, the director, a lot of people in the industry think Aleve might be the first to go. If things are going south this year and then ordure on, but this is a big big opportunity, especially with the change, he made an offensive coordinator, promoting his guy Stevens Binger the guy he wanted all along. You gotta have results with Joe borough, the Ohio State transfer, hopefully the savior for the Tigers on setting records for off. Coordinator hires and still keeping your job, and it's pretty good so far. All right. This is the last one that will do. We'll both give the answer and then after this will alternate outside of Alabama, Clemson, the team I'm most confident in making the college football, playoff is blank. Adam. I can't say USC that clearly by fourth as well. At this point you're all in on him. My third pick was Penn State, which I don't know how confident I am, but I will say this, I think Penn State's getting overlooked nationally. I think when you look at the schedule, especially the the early game against Ohio State a eighteen that are already have played TCU essentially on the road just down the road from TCU's campus. So Penn State gets Ohio State at home. They get Michigan state at home. They get Wisconsin at home. They also have the best quarterback in the conference in trace McSorley the most accomplished, a guy who should be getting more buzz for the Heisman. So my playoff picture a little nutty. And so I guess I gotta stick to them and say, Penn State would be the team. I'm most competent and besides Bama and Clemson. Jake gold with Georgia slave, all like that pick. So the reason I like Georgia look at Georgia schedule, they have one actor LSU loses to Miami this week, and they'll have one top twenty five team on their schedule the rest year. And so I think just by virtue of the fact that they have a cupcake central coming up the rest of the year, I think Georgia's a terrific chance to get in. You know, they presumably would have to beat Alabama in the SEC championship. But I would say that Georgia, if they went undefeated during the regular season and then lost, Alabama would still get in the playoffs. So I like the dogs. All right. Let's alternate quickly. I've made a pledge that we'll keep this podcast under fifty minutes and I'm probably losing losing. We've got three minutes, three minutes. This is not good. Okay. Blank is getting way too much preseason love. Jake Miami, are we sure that they're that good. I like how you kept it. Sinked fill in the blank. Adam Alabama's starting quarterback on Saturday. We'll be blank to tongue vi- Loa I think heat sits time under Mike Loxley..

"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..

The early part of this program will get right to it here in a moment with some more headlines by the way, the good thing. This is not this year.
