"I remember i was fixing a pair of pants for one of the supporting actors and i. I could've sworn i heard like children giggling. I heard running back and forth in the hallway. And there is a story associated to one of the master bedroom's across from where i was stationed of a woman in white so i would hear some strange things coming out of that master bedroom and every time i would open the door into that bedroom nothing was out of place no one or nothing was there so it was a very interesting location but like you said i i mean in some places you're gonna feel like when you're in danger when it's negative but i just yeah i didn't feel like it was negative. I felt like there was something there that was trying to make itself known and i think it was just either playing with. You're trying to say hi. But after i left i felt like such a catchment to the house late. Oh no don't leave like kinda like it was me back. It was very hard to explain but recruiter might come back to square. I feel the same thing in those homes. They're almost like you know if you're good to them they'd probably want you to stick around and come back and like an old friend but if you're you russ than back probably pretty quickly Something else interesting about two squares. They have a lot of donations of like wardrobe and now like medical equipment and other stuff so they have museums and things On the campus there but they also like addressed every home with real artifacts like someone is willed so like the record player in this one house is like this beautiful old family heirloom. that was donated. Either you know others and exhibit with like one of the homes was set up to be like one of those homes from back in the day where it's a doctor that lives in half the house and the other half is his practice like all the tools. There's a bed and thing there that would allow the operate on and such and so these things are all real. They're not props and they're given from like you know passed down for generations and donate her square. So every one of those elements throughout these houses has a story probably as well and so have to might not be the physical house. There's probably opportunities for you know other case to be attached to these things that being they meant so much to someone you know if you take a doctor's tools that he worked with every day for his career move it maybe. If there is a ghost associated they might go with the tools. So there's a lot of interesting energy. There yeah i never felt anything bad but definitely felt palpable. Yes and i remember it. I think the biggest house was the octagon that people are like getting the hell out of that house. Just get you out. Yeah but that is true. Yeah that's what. I remember telling one of the assistants there like a because i was asking those like. Is there any stories that you have. She's like definitely the octagon the other one. I can't remember the name of the white house. It was the white queen victoria. And she's like that one has a little weird to it too but she's like other than that nothing else but we've heard stories you know and i told her. Yeah you guys have a lot of antiques here. I think that that has attachment. It clicked in her head. She's like yeah. You're right like we have a whole room of things that we still haven't gone through that have been donated to us. So i mean it's like this whole squares like this little orphanage of lake you know structures that have been passed down in all these little trinkets in wardrobe..

It's orenthal j and it's very hard to sell orange horan bulgy back in the day now. They're starting to get a little more popular again. And that's great. Because i think a lot of the slump boats but Back day was hard to do.

"Dot com was available registered that trademarked it copyright everything. And then and then I did field. Studies my buddies, and I would go out to the clubs like we were doing anyway. And I'd go up to a group of girls, and I'd say girls, which you can I ask you a question. Would you try this your husband or boyfriend, and they'd say what is that? And I turn it on and they'd freak out and they call their friends over and they'd rip my pockets to get more and shit. Like this crazy is you seem like a pretty shy reserved guy. I can't imagine. That's a I used to be a wild, man. But I am now. Okay. That's like a bet. Like, if there's something I do one of these guys. Okay. If you lose you gotta take this pocket of vibrating ring. Oh, yeah. You got to hand them out to ten random girl. When I was your guys h I was I was wild got. I'm forty six now. Toned it down so down. Did you ever get any like did you ever get slapped in the face or never never know? The reaction was always positive. Yeah. It was always crazy. I'd get p people calling me up at two AM in the morning. Hey, man, I'm coming over. Do you have any more of those things? All right. Yeah. Anymore? Those ring I need I need a fix this fix. So. Yeah. Yeah. We got him live as my wingman. Dan. So this is like sort of the the original one is this the actual original model. That's the that's the one that I went over to China and rebuilt. So this is the upgraded from the. Yeah. Okay. So you're out handed him out people in crazy started business. I signed up for trade show. Didn't know anything about setting up truth. Yeah. And did the trade show had decent reaction? Probably lost a few thousand bucks on the trade show. Yeah. Did another trade show, these reaction and the third trade show that we did was it was an interesting kind of concept for the adult toy market. They did it where you would get twenty minutes sessions with the buyers top buyers and hotel room signed up for it. And this is what I'm questioning what I'm doing my life. Everybody thinks I'm not the my parents are like what you do and dad's like I got an interview for your Goldman Sachs. That's when the desperation said, I'm not going back and. And by the third trade show. We wrote almost one hundred thousand orders when we signed up twenty seven out of the thirty two top distributors in the United States for these products. What change I think it was just the concept and getting in front of these people you could call people all the time and you can knock on their door, and you can write him letters. But face to face is really powerful putting something in somebody's hands. Yeah. And I had four items of time there's a little bullet. There was a little massage, and and this and then variations and colors of this. And then so get back to I was working in garage guest house at the time my sister and moved to San Francisco, she let me rent her house and use a little garage and guesthouse as my office and warehouse, and I had five or ten thousand products gonna garage Jesus. So had to get on a plane to China figure it out real quick. I call it the trip from hell those twelve days and seven. Eighteen factories later and each factories three or four hour drive from the other ones, and they're all smelly. And and I wandered into this one factory in and they were making watches air purifiers dolls. And I said can you do this? And they said, yes, they had forty employees at the time pan. They did it, and we filled the orders spent twenty grand airfreight in the the fill the orders, and then it was off to the races. And then, you know, the first year, we did a million bucks.

"Put it that when you condense it into that show for it's like, it just feels like such industry of I didn't know what was going on for the first year. And I just thought man we're making so much money. We're trading in and out of these positions million dollars in one day we made and I was like this is unbelievable. And when I finally figured out how we were doing it. I was like this is terrible. Like, this isn't capitalism's. You know, this is just robbing robbing these desperate company, but you know, I mean in all fairness the company's were desperate for money. So they they did need it and some of them would make it, but very few of them. Yeah. And then the mask is just because from my like, Akron, Ohio. No college education, like my entrance into entrepreneurship was very. Sort of scrappy and piece it together, I've always been sort of enamored by like the world of hedge fund and investment banker, and it all just feels so like legit to me. It feels like man those are like the real guys right field. That's my weird perspective in story. But for that sake. Like, what is the life of a how old were you? When you were in New York doing that. All right think I was like twenty nine thirty so thirty year old New York investment banker doing really well. Like, what does it look like are you you're in an office all day, I'm guessing or no, no. I mean, I wasn't a trader. So the traders have to get in there and five AM, and they got a trade in and out of the shares. I was more of the guy that would go out and meet with the companies. I'd go source where the deals were. So I could work from anywhere. So I'd I worked there. We had a company house in San Diego and needed on the beach. So we'd come out here. Like, I said, I was friends with the guy. So that was pretty neat. But yeah, I mean, I could see how you think that? Yeah, they're legitimate..

"And then I was sitting in lunch with her one day, and this really wild talion guy was sitting next to us. And he liked my sister and struck up conversations. What do you do? And I said, I'm flipping homes. My sister's no, no, no, no. You should be an investment banker. I'm an investment banker is let face it. Let's eight with my. So he said he said, I work in Newport Beach. You know where that is? I said, yeah, I went to college UC Irvine. He's come down on Monday morning at ten AM. I got a job for you. What you'll be my system really liked her sister. He really loves his a really nice guy and turn out to be just my mentor in the investment banking world. Yeah. He was his name was Tony soy she'd pass away wrist rest in peace. But it was it was wild. I mean, I got down there. And I didn't know anything about investment banking. Yeah. And he taught me the ropes and we were doing something called pipes at the time. And he sort of was a pioneer in this and stands for private investments and public equities. Okay. So publicly traded companies would come to the investment Bank and say we need money, and they would be like real estate broker, go out and shop it mutual funds or hedge funds or and. So that was really neat. And it was sort of a unique instrument in the investment banking world. It was a new thing and it was hot. And I got to travel all over the United States with him meet with all these companies CEO's CFO's, I got to learn the internal workings of all these companies and see you know, what was working what wasn't working and just kind of sit on the sideline and watch and learn so absorbed all that. And then you like that what attracted you about it like. Was it being able to see into companies and stuff like that? That you really what was the thing that made you think, oh, I could be an investment banker. I mean, if I'm being Frank I wanted to make money. Yeah. That was that was the the driving goal, and that was why went back to business school because all the guys that were making million plus a year managing directors. They oughta MBA's they all went to top schools. I guess why? Why that as opposed to flip in more in bigger houses like what you can make money quicker seem what did you like what attracted you more about it? Yeah. I mean, I think it was it was that the guy that I worked for in New York was I think I was thirty and he was thirty one at the time, and he was making fifteen million a year. And you know to flip homes was do that you have to put it out and get it back and put it out and get it back. You can make great money, and it's a lot of fun, and there's the artistic portion of it. But it wasn't really that magnitude. D- of of money at the time. And and I said, okay, I'm gonna do this. And and it was also exciting. I mean, loved going into companies, and I think it's helped me in my business to to see that. What makes a great company? Yeah. And what makes a company of the people, and the people you work with and and and that that can also break a company if bad people it can go the opposite way. And you think you learned that during that time period like when you were looking at all these companies like it's interesting to me through the lens of an investment banker to start digging into all these companies and see that the people are what make you know, as opposed to well, the margins are you right with the numbers of the numbers. So you know, we wanna do that the on the numbers? But I think subconsciously I didn't know I was gonna run my own business at the time..

"And you know, I got really lucky too. Because at the time the internet was just taking off with porn. So let you we you know, what I do something dramatic here. Sure. Can I go back to the childhood part? So that I can kind of understand how all of this evolved in your head. Yeah. Like, so when you're a kid and your dad wins this case life changes. Do you remember feeling that like the impact of that that you member like life-changing? Remember like, oh, wow. Yeah. Yeah. I remember being backstage he had a band called the silver's. They were like the Jackson Five and they performed with the Jackson Five and all that stuff and Tom Jones, and Donna summer's and Joan Jett and all the rockstar. So I remember being backstage and looking at these costumes, and you know, all the athletes would come over to our house and lay on the couch. I'd fight them for you know, what cartoon you're gonna watch. And then playboy was around. And Michael was close with you Hafner. So as I got older and into my teenage years, I got invited to some of those parties as amazing as like, that's so cool. I feel like you probably have so many stories from like childhood, it just seems so different than you. I grew up feeling like those things all so far away on another planet. You know? I can't imagine growing up around. That stuff. Yeah. It was really neat. I mean, I'm super proud of my daddy's my hero. And I know it's not the normal story. I know that's not the normal path. He wanted me to be a lawyer. And I know this isn't the normal path that he that he thought I would take either. But did you so that when you got to? Like high school time will you just focused on sports during that phase or so I went to four different high schools how come. So the first high school, I went to Beverly high, and my brother is seven years younger than me, and he was getting picked on by bullies. So I went to his elementary school. And I believed the boys basically, one of the bullies had an older brother who approached me in an assembly that we're having in high school and spit in my face, and I broke his nose, and it was kicked out of that school. So I finished I stopped picking on your they stopped after a quick. And then I finished my sophomore year Palisades high school, which was LA city school. And I accept it basketball. I was really a great swimmer when I was younger, and I wanted to be a swimmer. But my dad loved basketball and push me, the basketball and excelled at that too. So I got I was on kind of probation there. But I was always. His an excellent math student always loved the numbers. I love being. Being able to problems. So I let my teammates because I was new kid in school, and she'd off me and now Jabbar, whatever it was. And I got caught there, and I got kicked out of there. And then my parents had enough of that. So they sent me to Catholic school, and I'm Jewish. And we were number five in the country and basketball, and we had an amazing team. I haven't Mazen coach, and that was an awesome experience called Saint Monica's Santa Monica. Yeah. And I really my basketball game really really went to the next level and four out of the five starters. There went division one. And I transferred my senior year down to Orange County because my dad was developing land down there. And I'll that's a do a member. Like did that have any affect on you or do you think?.

"And then I came back. I worked for few years and went back to business school my last year in business school, I was sort of floating around. I didn't know what I wanted to do was in finance before was investment banking. And I told my dad, there's FINA on and Akron. Let's go see him. So we got in touch with his mother, Gloria we got on a plane and we met with the family, and we went to a game and watched him play. And there were fifteen other agents there, and you know, these guys are getting taken care of from the time. They're thirteen years old. He looked at me. And he said my advice to you is because he had horses to don't get involved with anything that eats or talks back when you're looking at business. Yeah. You gotta really wanna do it. And I really didn't want to do it. And I was just doing it because I wanted to follow his footsteps, and I thought it'd be cool, and and all that stuff, and it wasn't really my passion. So we came back from that. And I got a job in New York at a huge hedge fund forty billion dollar fund at at business school. And I went out there for couple of years. And then I really hated it. And I always say, you know, businesses are started for one of two reasons either inspiration or desperation, and when I was in business school. I was real square peg kinda guy was I was an athlete. I wasn't a drinking smoke pot and stuff like that. But I had this girlfriend who was gorgeous. And she took me into a store that was an adult toy shop on time and mostly videos, and we went in the back, and we bought this rang with a bullet in it and the cord, and we tried it. And she was like, you know, her head almost spun off. Wait what's going on here right here? Yeah. And so I didn't really think of anything I graduated school. I went to New York, and and then after couple years, I just I left I had enough of Wall Street, and I had enough of the grind of what I was doing and made a ton of money doing it. And I said I'm gonna take two weeks off, and I'm gonna travel through Europe again and two weeks turned into six months, and it was sort of vision quest. And I went ended up in Brazil. I ended up all over Europe Asia. And so we had no idea what you wanted to do or what you just trying to no idea. I mean, I ended up a friend of mine was a movie producer writer, and he was doing a movie called goal at the time. It was the soccer movie. And I went and visited him in England Newcastle, and I hit it off with the owners of the team from Newcastle were just wrapping the film, and they had this concept to go down to Brazil invest in all these soccer clubs in Brazil. And they said. Will you be our liaison? I said sure I'm not doing anything else. So I went to Brazil for six months, and I set up all these foreign investments into teams for Newcastle. Yeah. And I fell in love with Brazil, the Brazilian people, and the culture, but I always had the entrepreneurial spirit, and I always wanted to do something on my own, and, you know, had ideas for water company and for stone company and furniture company. And there was a surf wear brand down there that I fell in love with that. It was gonna bring back, but they all had huge kind of barriers to entry or startup gos- get into him. So a friend of mine in in Thailand said, hey, I saw these rings at coming out of China and they're disposable vibrating rings. And it was sort of a lightbulb moment went off. And I said, well, send me so I got a couple of them. They're really kinda crappy. They broke they didn't last long. But the concept was. Have a disposable vibrating ring disposable sex toy something that you could have that was clean every time. And that was inexpensive..

And I hate to say that I was maybe prejudging, but I thought that maybe the owner of a sex toy company would would look a little crazy and he didn't. And that is because he is a berry disciplined, very smart. Former in. Investment banker worked at a hedge fund in New York took a very took that path in life, and then decided for a lot of different reasons, but mainly because of the culture of working at a place like a hedge hedge fund that that's not the life. He wanted to live, and it wasn't all about just more money and being a savage and that sort of lifestyle for him. He wanted to build a company and have be surrounded by good people being an industry where he could really make an impact and build a business that he was really proud of and proud of the people and proud of the work environment and proud of all of that and he stumbled upon the sex toy industry, and he decided he could really make an impact and do something special. And that's exactly what he did. And he has been rewarded greatly for it. So this was a really good lesson in not only that industry, but also getting clear on you can have all the success in the world. But if you're not happy, and you don't like the culture of that. Industry, and it's not for you. Then all the money means nothing. And when that happens if that happens on any level in any of our lives. That's when it's time to be brave and and make that pivot and jump out of it and join something else and Justin did that. And I have a lot of respect for him for doing that. And he's a guy. So I'm really excited to show this episode. I think you guys will definitely get something out of it. And definitely get a little bit of a look into an industry that we haven't talked about yet that being said they were kind enough to send me a bunch of gift bags, and as you can imagine they're full of a bunch of little sex toys. So I'm going to give them away. All you gotta do is comment under my last incident. But if you don't know, my Instagram name is just drama common. Under my last Instagram photo or video and just put hashtag pick me. That's nice and simple act. Picked me. I'm not gonna play out. I'm not gonna make you describe some sex toy stuff, but what you're gonna do with them. Type pick me we're gonna pick ten winners, and we're gonna send you bags of of goodies from Justin's company. That's it. It's time to get into it. Make sure all that I asked if you like these episodes, if you get some value out of if you if you enjoy it at all close it on social media.

"You're gonna have to outscore us and many and most will. But I think they can aspire to that like two thousand five six Texas Tech level. And I think six and six should make you happy in terms of improvement. Yeah. Won't make anybody happy there. I think it should. I mean, listen if they beat Mississippi State everybody who have no. And that's that's the funny thing is they can be five and six going into that game win that game and Gail success. We'll see at at Memphis season opener. Like, no for them one or four four all right, Alabama, which means I made Tennessee number one which felt right for some sort of twisted reason, so Alabama. I did trick you. Aside from what let's call it. The clear most important reason for the manner and very public way in which the tide loss, which is clemson's excellence. What was it? I guess if anything internally about the twenty eight team that could have contributed to that sort of out of character beat down. I don't think it was something that happened in twenty eighteen I think it was when they were recruiting corners. And both of them were going after Justin Ross Clemson and Alabama were both going after Justin Ross in. Auburn was also after him Justin Ross pit Clemson. If Justin Ross Alabama. Then that result is not the same. The there. There's not a a wins above replacement receiver for Clemson that you can throw in there. Maybe it's Higgins, maybe not though. 'cause remember if you don't have Justin Ross, you can put a better corner on Higgins, which they did put a better corner on T Higgins, Justin Ross was the one they kinda left, you know, playing against the they're not as good corners. And right. You saw what he did to them. And I don't think they're gonna find many situations where they face in other team that is recruited as well. Or better than they have. There's not gonna there's nobody else like that. So I think they're going to be fine in the SEC except when they when they ultimately play Georgia in Atlanta. Right. And I think that's gonna be really fun game. Just like it has been the last two times they played in Atlanta. But I think they're going to be okay. Every everybody looks at the score of that game. And the fact that that the whole staff has has turned over. Well, the whole staff has turned over the last couple years and they've still managed to be good. It has long as Nick savings. They're they're gonna be good. Now does this does this portend a time when Alabama is not the dominant program in college football, not the dominant program the SEC. Maybe maybe I look Nick Saban eventually will retire, and then they won't be any more. So, but I think as long as he's there they have to be the favourite, and you have to assume that they are going to be the best team on any given Saturday in an SEC game. So. I just I think I think the downfall. And everybody loves to write those the dynasties over calms. Don't do it yet. No don't do. It say say save that for later. It's not time. It did feel different though. Didn't it? It did feel different because we never seen them beat like that. Right. Every other team has gotten beaten like that. We've we've not seen a Nick Saban Alabama team get beat like that. And so it feels different because it it's it's kind of vulnerability we've seen from them that we didn't think existed so strange, but that said clemson's the only team capable of exposing that Volmer ability. Nobody Nancy C capable of it. Because if Georgia was capable of it would've done it. Nobody has that combination of quarterback and continuity and talent level and culture to to go into a game..

"Now Old Dominion with five minutes left in the fourth quarter leads Virginia Tech forty two thirty five. We've already had one top twenty five team fall earlier today as Boston College defeated or was defeated by Purdue in west Lafayette by a score of thirty to thirteen. Michigan had no problem with the Brassica as the worst start in school history continues now Owen three after getting pummeled in Ann Arbor. Fifty six to ten Notre Dame as a new quarterback. It looks like as Ian book five of thirty four three hundred twenty five yards passing and two touchdowns leading the fighting Irish over a good Wake Forest team fifty six to twenty seven Georgia wins again now four no after he forty three twenty nine win over Missouri. And Alabama also remains unbeaten this one tad closer, but the crimson tide knocking off Texas A and M today as it is now a final from Tuscaloosa as they went forty five to twenty three Ohio State. Also, a winner urban Myers returned forty nine six over two lane while Clemson a winner as well as we get the recap from Jeff Zell. Number three, Clemson has defeated Georgia Tech forty nine to twenty one. And what could the call the Trevor and traffic show freshman quarterback Trevor Lawrence completed thirteen of eighteen passes for one hundred seventy six yards and four touchdown passes. Three in the second quarter alone in the fourth quarter. He threw a three yard touchdown pass to Higgins, but it was his three second quarter. Touchdown that blew up in the game. Tigers to the halftime locker room up twenty eight seven. Seventeen yard touchdown pass Renfro than a fifty three yard touchdown strike to Justin Ross and finally three yard touchdown pass to Travis medium with five seconds left in the half. And also had a three yard touchdown run. And a hundred and twenty two yards on the ground and eleven cherries. Caveats Easter had eight Terry's for seventy five yards and thirty seven yard touchdown run. The Tigers actually got their first touch on the game when Cleveland Farrell fell on a Kwesi fumble in the jackets since out for Georgia Tech's starting quarterback take on Marshall, which is one of six for twenty nine yards. But he had twenty five carries for forty seven yards including an eleven yard touchdown run to buy you soliver came in a quarterback for Georgia Tech in the fourth quarter and completed two passes for twenty eight yards including five yard touchdown pass to Lynch once again. Number three, Clemson beats Georgia Tech forty nine to twenty one. All right. So another big day for the Tigers who go to foreign, no. On the season. And it's a good one between Texas Tech should say, Texas and TCU. Let's go to Austin and get the latest on this one. Here's Jeff how. Right now. Thirty three seconds to go in the third quarter Texas now leading seventeenth ranked TCU right now it's twenty three to sixteen. There's a play under UK concerns intercept. Shauna Robinson, it looks like he stepped out of bounds right around the three yard. So it looks like this touchdown for Texas. It's going to come off long. Once we'll have great field position turnovers. Are the story in the second half. Or TCU Robinson is now intercepted twice. He also fumbled Texas took the fumble got a forty five turn that into a seven play forty five. Dr touchdown drive that ends with a beautiful thirty two yard touchdown pass from Sam etlinger to college often etlinger with a solid game. They retained seat of twenty eight one hundred ninety nine yards and a touchdown. He's also been getting it done on the ground Robinson, not too bad thirteen twenty two hundred seventy two yards one touchdown, but the two interceptions and the fumble have put TCU in a bad spot longhorns. It looks like they're going to have a Folkston goal at the three yard line as we count down here late in the third quarter. Again, TCU has won four straight in this series. TCU has. Never beaten Texas five times in a row and right now, it looks like that streak is in serious. Jeopardy is Texas with a seventeen sixteen lead over seventeenth ranked TCU late third quarter. Thank you very much, Jeff, and this has been a fun. When the Texas defense though is sit out today. Jodi came up got the long touchdown pass to take the lead. Go up by a point media dare after picked off pass took it to the house. They called it a touchdown. They're reviewing it adds up right now. I don't know why it's taken so long to review. Yes. They have spotted the ball at the three yard line. Definitely stepped out of bounds going in. But Texas has a chance to add to their one point lead here. First and goal inside the five currently at the three yard line. All right. So we have a Texas now takes it in. So the longhorns in front as they score that touchdown. It is now twenty three to sixteen late third quarter twenty eight seconds left to forty two left in Old Dominion with a forty two. Thirty five lead. And right now Virginia Tech has the ball in Old Dominion territory. Facing a fourth and four Canham not got an interesting choice you Jodi your defense, which is your calling card. I was actually thinking that, you know, go for it on fourth down. But you know, you actually, you know, what you're down seven. So even a field goal. Not gonna do it. No. You know, back still going to have to score a touchdown one way or the other. And I'm not surprised the Gulf war because the previous possession. A also went for it on fourth down. They do. So again last time, they converted as a matter of fact with a touchdown pass this time not so effective the turnover on downs. But again to thirty three left a lot of time. Three timeouts left four Virginia Tech. So your defense can get a stop. And then you get the ball back. That's the that's the case. Why tax now just got to turn it up defensively ios timeouts and then take their side coming back. Due to the defenders hands probably obstructed the view of the wide receiver. But he hit him off the shoulder pads. You gotta come in gotta come up with that cat. No question. Oklahoma and army getting underway in Norman. And now part two of the conversation with Jeff monk in the army head coach talked to him about the fact that they're facing Cuyler Murray this week who through the first three weeks is one of the Heisman Trophy candidates. How do you limit the big plays that he and the Sooners are capable of? He is is metro fy candidate. I mean, he's got the numbers of the guy that wanted a year ago and and playing in the same system. So he he's one of college. Football's great players. Yeah. I don't know. How you limit the guy? You you try to play you play your defense the best the best you capable of. And I know Jay we'll have a terrific plan for it. He will you know, he'll get our our players prepared. And a lot of it has to do with the execution and a lot of that has to do with the other team. And they've they've got a lot of talented players not just him. And it starts with the with the offensive line. They got their their massive their athletic. And then they got a bunch of skill players that are really really good. And so that it's not just slowing down Murray. It's slowing down eleven guys out there against us. And that's a challenge for a lot of people will be for us. But I think our guys will be prepared to to do their best. And hope we hope that we will facing. Oklahoma's a tremendous treat for your team. It's an opportunity on the biggest stage against some of the best. Athletes in the nation. Not to take anything away from your team either. Because there among the the great athletes in the country. But last year you went to a higher state. You lost a few players in that game as well. As the game. Was there anything that you learned in that defeat that you take into this weekend? Oh, I think we we learn things every time we play and. Certainly in that in that game against a great football team. I think you figure out where you draw the line, and what limitations you've got a place on yourself. To give the guys the best chance to win. And the the the fine line is you realize that against the incredibly talented team is Oklahoma. Is you may have to do a few things differently than than you've done before? One tonight. Just be sitting ducks and sitting out there on defense where you've been every single down the week before the week before that or on offense to just say, hey, we're going to block this exactly the way we blocked at last week and mine up in in these formations and. And run the exact same plays. You realize you you're gonna have to give them a little something to to try to gain is banished somewhere. But not disadvantage your own team by doing too much. And so that's that's that's that's the challenge this week. Is it is it really? That's that's like it is often for us because often I see the other team and realize what what good athletes they've got. And and and the ability that they have in one on one matchups and and really that's kinda our thought process going into every week, but but certainly guess Oklahoma the number five team in the country there there's they've got some of the best players in the country. They're incredibly well coached. We often hear how special the cadets are. But there is one. I want to ask about in particular. I'm sure there are many great stories on this team. But that's kinda Brinson a straight a student in a plus if that's possible. He's also on the track team in one team might be talking up at West Point. But he's on to for those that don't know could you tell us how special is to be around this team and people like him. Kenneth Branson's one of those guys that. And and we likely all know a few people in our life like this. He just he he wants to excel at everything he does. And he has the ability to excel at everything he does as you mentioned in the classroom. He's he's gosh. She's one of the best students in his class. So for I think he's I think he's slugging it out with two or three other cadets at the top of the senior class. But for the first two years here, he was the number one ranked cadet in his class, you mentioned too as being a track athlete, and and playing football here the schedules tough enough to just play one sport, but to to balance to especially in the spring when both sports are going on during spring ball was football. It's it's really tough for him. And it would be for anybody to balance. But he he. He wants to do a lot of things that he wants to do them. All very well. And in seem credible to see him do all of those things so well and just got a number of talents, and and an incredible personal drive to succeed and and really proud of him. And what he's what he's done here. So far makes us feel very comfortable nations in good hands. Well, not just him. There's a there's four thousand four hundred get that's here, and I can assure you that every one of them is is driven to succeed, and and are incredibly proud to be here to serve and to serve this nation. And and to do a job that very very few Americans are willing to do. And so I'm glad we got him. And this is an incredible place with an incredible credible group of young people without question, and it's been a joy so far to watch this team. The last couple of years off to a nice start after back to back wins and have. Tough one this weekend. But we wish you the best of luck. And thanks so much for a couple of minutes. Appreciate the opportunity to have a great day. Jeff monk in the head coach of army love what he's done a love him as a person in a outstanding coach, and it's fun to watch that team. However, they are trailing Oklahoma by a score of seven and nothing was going to say started. And he's already in a hole. They they knew they bit off a big. Yeah. He's the chew here and kids will grow from it. You try not to get crushed in a game like this. But if you come out of this one competitively thereafter, you'll feel good about the rest of your schedule on your season. I think he said it best. And when he said, they try to give their athletes a chance to compete on the highest level. And this is it, and I think that's very noble, obviously, I think they're realistic going into things they've been in this spot last year losing in Ohio State. I think the one thing they learned from that is they got really beaten up in that game physically. They had a lot of injuries. After that. I think that's one thing that they're at least obviously looking toward this game tonight hoping to come out of it. Okay. Again, at least on the scoreboard. They're just down by a score of seven nothing has Cuyler Murray. The guy we talked about how do you limit him in? The you already has a touchdown pass today. So Oklahoma off to a good start. And speaking of good Old Dominion. Has scored again Jodi so so much for the good defense and three timeouts as Old Dominion comes right down. It's a two touchdown game. Now under two minutes left and to lose the Old Dominion, who's Owen three..
