Bryce being the guy right now how happy are you that he going to play with the ones all right. So that's the way it's going to be. How are you that. He's been able to kind of progress the way he has.

Saying this made my day the go-to always en- game day mode. Even with spring practice

Paul george anderson south carolina twenty miles from clemson native of west virginia. Thank you great to have your arm. bob houses teams have won nine hundred games. Who who who who decides. Who's in the hall of fame. I believe it is a committee. I don't know the makeup of the committee. But i did remember hearing them talk about that the other day on the on the game that he was i did not realize he was not a member of hall of fame. A lot of the announcers if he will listen to. They don't understand either. Why bob huggins is not in the coaches hall of fame Does anybody know who the people are. Who makes had decision. I i will find out. I'm pretty sure it is a committee of the national may either the nabc or the hall of fame springfield. But i'll see if i can find that out i. I don't think this is as well as i do. There are a lot of coaches in there who have been a whole lot. Less successful than bobby huggins has. Yeah i think bob huggins. He took a final four team. Cincinnati i think. Sometimes you know his his way. His his attitude is upset. People over the years. I've had to encounters with them. Always found them to be pretty straightforward guy. I like him. Yeah but his policies players loving. Bob bob knight's one of the most of knox just an arrogant coaches of all time. But he's considered among the two or three best. That ever never stopped bob nicely in the hall of fame. Bobby how can this can be a little abrasive. Plus said but he is good his players in the his players loving. Now i i agree with you on that and i will see if i can dig up the criteria to get in and thank you. You bet thanks for calling thank you thank you take care of yourself. Chuck is up next in louisiana. Hello check hey paul how are you doing. We're doing well. The reason i call it was going to call you. Were listening to that. General ninety four years old. God bless him and man. Everybody has served in the military. But the guy that called you a whole You know. I've been called a few times in my life but paul where does badge of honor so i i. I must have missed it when he did on twitter. Because you tend to cringe when i see all the criticism but that's okay. At least he was honest enough to admit. Well i hear you have a good day call. i think. Yeah i'm like a lot of people When it comes to criticism if you say it's about face. I really don't care if you posted somewhere. I probably don't care either but our appreciate somebody who at least is willing to tell you what they think in in person or anyway well as close as you can do it in in today's world. Hey let's get to the call. And greg is in dayton ohio. Hello greg thanks good afternoon. Good afternoon how you were doing. Well thank you so. I saw the oldest hype video called the. I'm i'm just hyped up after Always gone through this year as a nation Having the permit report standpoint and the government and then the baseball and softball Easy cancelled And then having what all happened in mississippi which i got to be a part of positive change. I got to see something that i designed Flying through the capital for me is once in a lifetime experience but Getting back to the ncaa tournament and having bad it. Got me thinking about how they have Full scholarship and then. I'm looking at at baseball. Which we have high fees and the top side Why it is baseball and softball. The only sport in the sec. That don't get polarized like basketball. The phone or is it just. That's on basketball football. There's always a great baseball is third There's always been a great debate about the. I'm trying to remember whether they have scholarships or not but it you know considering the amount of money. The baseball provides generates It seems like we should probably change that. I'm just seeing since take capri four in the united states i will i'm so see how With basketball and football getting full scholarships not saying that they shouldn't they hunters. Yeah but greg. I i think i think i think it has probably more to do with the amount of money generated in the amount of money while while baseball programs do make a lot of money in terms of gate receipts. It is a very expensive sport too because of travel there. It's a long season. And i'm guessing because i don't know the number on this the near you don't have the natural television revenue now the sec network Does a lot of baseball games as we all know there. But you don't have the kind of packages that you do in basketball or football. That generates tens if not hundreds if not billions of dollars and i think ultimately that really is is the issue of why it probably does not as important as baseball is to this conference and others. It deserves more consideration of that. Is there anything that my fans could do to help promote. Potential full scholarships for Baseball i tell you what i'll do greg the next time. We have a baseball coach. john. Which i'm sure we'll be sometime soon. I'll i'll i'll i'll get a better..

"Minute. Dan is up next. Hey dan eight ball how you doing today and we're doing great that's great. You got to madness. Talent i am. I'm pretty fired up. it's quite. Are you watching the tournament. Oh yeah yes. And you know it's unbelievable exchange with these good defense of our They're showing it i. I was wondering do think is gonna carry the tournament. Well i think ultimately defense is always defense is always critically important. Hey dan thanks for the call. It's always good to catch up with you. Let's welcome in our next guest. He is lane kiffin. It has been a while since we talked to the head. Coach coach would power you. What's going on. How have you been been great paul. Thank you We start Spring ball tomorrow so players are in meetings and so excited to get back out on the field and See what we got well. Let's talk about it in. Certainly you know this is a little different than than last year at this point Things were in utter chaos. I know every every coach has a list of priorities. I assume that i don't know that. What are you most interested in as you get back on the field other than getting back on the field. Well i think you know first off we have fourteen mid years so And i believe twelve are on defense. You know so you know. We need some help there. we didn't play very well last year as we all know played better in the bowl game and look to build off that with a lot of players coming back and a lot of new players. Not just we'd get in here For the fall but we got him in the spring. So you know that's probably number one and then you know developing around the quarterback and also you know continue to develop him and get rid of the interceptions. I think i don't know in two of the games. What he had thirteen interceptions or something. And i think two or three and all the rest of the games combined so he's shown that he can play at the highest level and now he's gonna do it. We can a week out not just for most games. Let's talk about mad for a second. Because i mean there were times he was so great and i know what you what you said a minute ago. But how do you overcome things like that. That are just simply at least for a layperson. Hard to explain. Well first off. He was just a sophomore and he was in his third system in three years including his redshirt ear so and he did not have spring in this system. So i think it's pretty remarkable. What he did. I think he led the sec In in yards per game With some great quarterbacks obviously in the conference and set a bunch of school records you know in certain games against some really good defenses. So we're excited about that and excited to have them for the spring. Because you know i think if we said those words numbers and how well he played with no spring. I think we've taken that because this time we didn't know if was a starter a year ago and we weren't even practicing. You mentioned the meteors. And i'm so interested in hearing more about this is not a new thing but it's a critically important thing just comparing the way it used to be when when you really didn't have this in your career versus now how how critically important is getting these guys through spring ball and then hopefully they. Hopefully they develop into really good players. By the time you start playing. Yeah i think. I feel old when you say that paul about how it used to be but it was. It used to just be quarterback. Basically you know that you know figure out a way to graduate a semester early and now it is you know over well over half the players in our class so You know that that is great. It's you know having for spring ball. It's great academically as well because you got a whole semester Under their belt instead of the old days they came in the fall and all of a sudden. I've got school. I haven't gone to school yet and now i'm going to school and got to travel and play regular season games. So it's a great benefit when they're able to do that talking to lead by the way do for me to make you feel old is quite an accomplishment for somewhat of my age. Thank you paul. I appreciate that i compliment. You're giving me. I try hard. I mean i searched the a search twitter trying to find something to say about you. But i'm struggling coach. Anyway look in terms in of the season still. Let's make sure everybody knows who you still owe me because you did. Get me fired at usc that saturday morning by saying i'm the miley cyrus of college football. Which helped you sense. And that's not really a put down for those who who who didn't see this and i'm i'm blushing even beyond the normal blush of makeup. I said that on college game day. It was my first year at espn coach. I was trying to make a name for myself and i. unfortunately you just happened to be the next victim. I do feel badly about that. Well don't worry we helped you. We give up six points that day so it wasn't all you wouldn't have heard if you wanted to game. I didn't make that story out that you were struggling out there. In terms in fact i may have been pretty prescient predicting your downfall but to continue this soap opera on. I ran into you two weeks later. You're on game day in seattle washington. And i really. I wrote a chapter about this in a book. I thought you were going to kill me. That's what some of the people on a. I think we're worried about that. They said But we became good friends. And so i thought tennessee tennessee thing deep down on youtube so i understand that healing takes time. We we ended up communicating. And you sent me a text The next day I think after the hit about about one of miley. So i think it was wrecking ball or something to her her big hits and i knew then you you were not nearly as bad as i made you ought to be and and the rest is history. I haven't i haven't criticized you sent. And that's pretty hard not to do all the all the all the calls that you've made that i would like to have criticized you about that is true anyway. Let's get back to what i would. We'll try to get back to this interview. Although i i've lost all focus wanting to go retro here and talk about the lane kiffin. His greatest hits but coach. Let's talk about the season with a spring. Now that you're about to have and your fans are just knocking down whenever they call. They're they're about as high on this as they have been.
David Kellum, Voice of Ole Miss, Talks About How He Got His Start at Ole Miss
"David kelham. Who is the voice of the ole miss rebels He's been part of that program for going on for decades And you know what a time to be at ole miss with the football program under lane kiffin the basketball program doing quite well and then the baseball program only being number one in the country we had One of the stars of the team on the other day and david. I know. Fridays are pretty busy times with baseball and everything. But we appreciate you making time for us and how are you sure doing great polyp sitting at the box waiting for us to play belmont here at six thirty our time. So it's great. You called me the perfect time but good to be only. I have seen this before in her different friends. But i would be intrigued the because sometimes it takes a long time to get a a prime job like you have now especially with the the just the absolute zeal for almost baseball but You apparently got started pretty early. Yep i started basically in highschool to be honest with that kind of tricked tricks my way into this job I was a senior in high school. My mother was professor suter. Don't miss and i used to hang out of her office a lot and radio. Tv was under theater and campus radio station which was w cbi at that. Time was carrying ole miss baseball and it was on cable. Only the students were gone. The professors were known. This guy comes blowing out of the station ex. My mother's office and he's gotta find somebody these games. Everybody's gone and so. I told him i said i can do him. He said who are you. Don't even go was and so. He thought hosted freshman. Ole miss which i was not as a senior high school. But i did the seventy seven. Sec tournament for ole miss on the campus radio station as a eighteen year old. So that's how. That's how. I got my and they hired by the local radio station. The final years that this jack you know how that goes and started doing baseball and seventy eight. It's baseball and women's basketball through. Eighty eight became the lead announcer in football men's basketball and continue to baseball in eighty nine. I mean that's i'm always Always admire people not only for for excelling but being able to to stay in a job. That long. And i don't mean that i mean and i say that because there's all misses the perfect exception it is the perfect example there. There are a lot of changes that have happened then. You never really know what's going to happen. I've seen it firsthand with When when i first started in birmingham legendary voice of the crimson tide was out with a new a new administration. How how how do you hang on. And i don't mean hang on. How do you stay in the job like that. For for as long as you do considering the politics of of intercollegiate athletics. Just don't criticize the coaches and you told a long time ago point. Because they rarely they rarely pop up these jobs to. There's more opportunity now. I teach a class at old miss. We're not teaching this spring because of the pandemic but i teach sportscasting class. And when i got my shot to be in radio radio was basically it. I mean you didn't have the live streaming opportunities the podcast opportunities and all the things that are going on today And so it has been difficult. But it's funny. you should mention. I've had kids through the years that like meet the rebels day would come up to me and say i'm gonna have your job someday and i soon i've got a few more years. You know thinking back my mind but this past year A kid said that's means that ten years old and hit him. Like you might be the one because i put in a tiny years this point when i got started John waters at tennessee. Larry months was the georgia jim. Five was it auburn jet crystal. Was it stay. You had k would lead for Kentucky rely at alabama. Mickey floor. Jim halt on lsu had just started a little bit before me. And then of course. Later we get all eels outta arkansas about voltage for south carolina and more recently dave south from texas mike kelly from missouri. But that list of names Just incredible announcers across this leaks. And when i first got in the youngest announcing the sec felt very very fortunate. The following year Our buddy west. Durham came in Demand or bill before we went to go to georgia tech. He became the second youngest announcer. We're sitting at a football media days in birmingham which of course you know all about vendor several of them and we're not a little broadcast meeting we're looking around the room and some of those names that just mentioned for sitting there and westland over to me now. He's got a legendary dad. He grew up with and woody but he said you intimidated. I said apps so We were surrounded by that early in our careers which is really really cool. And unique to get to know those men and lean on those that we were kinda the young bucks at the time and that we've kind of become not necessarily legends but longevity We're we're the ones that have been around a while.
Coaching search updates: Kevin Steele the favorite at Auburn
"Obviously we're in the middle. Coaching carousel to and i think the most interesting one right now is auburn I think they spent twenty one point. Five million dollars to buy out gus malzahn. We could argue whether he should have been fired or not the end of the day. He lost the momentum there and they the boosters put the you know got out the hat and collected the money and they fired him. So you think okay. You're gonna fire Coach gus malzahn. All that money. You're going to want to go out and get like the splashes possible coach. You can get tell us who's actually leading the coaching search right now as we reported this morning. That sources are telling me that the front runner for this job right now is defensive coordinator kevin steele and while that may blow some people's minds. He has some very very influential people at auburn who are big believers in him and in his corner at auburn. Especially that matters right so look We have a story up but the athletic now about who's in the mix there and the ones. I think one of the people who is really a big contender against kevin steele on this front is lane. Kiffin at ole miss But i think he would have a hard time turning that job down. I think he's obviously a big name. Now he's foreign four. It's it's interesting in that. I think a saturday's game between ole miss and lsu doesn't mean a whole heck of a lot. You know outside of those two programs. But i think it may may need a little bit of something potentially at auburn as crazy as it sounds because for some people at auburn i think they could shape it and saying all right kevin steele dreadful run as the head coach at baylor twenty. Plus years ago he was one and thirty one in big twelve. Play at baylor is a long time ago but people. I've talked to down there have made the case where you know what at had a bad record. The first time he was a head coach and he just won a national title a year ago. And my my counter. That was well. He did have to times as interim pretty lengthy runs where he was at least able to show people he's evolved and grown and those people said look a people at auburn feel like kevin steele's been the guy who's hold it together for them the last few years he is very well respected within the scc And so also know how. Attractive is lane to auburn. He did a really good job at fau their foreign You know if he loses to. Lsu's not very good this year. He's foreign five. I think probably diminishes a little bit No its first year. It wasn't like anybody expected out all messed great. But he's definitely a candidate As billy napier from louisiana Maybe who freezes is somebody that that auburn would push for. I think and you still have steve sarkisian there. You know also in the state of alabama So it's a really interesting. Search in auburn is wildly unpredictable. What does but From what i heard they would love to have a coach Decided upon by the beginning of next week
Lou Holtz talks Notre Dame and more
"Lua alluded to you as being a builder and again i go back to the interview which you had here in the studio with us and the obvious question from a person when you They asked you about the rumors you going to. Usc and you said usc is one of the three best jobs. And i said wait a minute. I know notre dame is one of the best. What's the third best job. And you said the one that i get and it turned out to be usc but the university of south carolina. And and i'm just wondering when you reflect back about taking over that program. Why did you take over such a struggling program. And what is it is allowed. Lou holtz everywhere. He has gone to be able to build success. What i foresee a we will not arrive. I think we had three offensive linemen on scholarship is all we had. It did have a quarterback and didn't have a running back to his per se. But you know you grin there you you just you try to fundamental you. Try to do the things that we talked about. Just you know. Build build the football team. And i have gone to six different situations in college and never inherited a winner and went to bow game no later in the second year with matter of fact after going on eleven we finished seventeenth a country next year and beat ohio state in a bowl game following here i think we finished loveth in the country. Beat state again on january one. But it's not because guy it's Coach it's all about the people. If team i mean it's about coaches and players. All all really tried to play their road and believe that you can do something. We read great fan support in south carolina. We were below eligible this year. We'd basically accepted a bowl bid and then of course after a little probably had with trump said in my last football game we decided not to go to a bowl game. I would've liked to vendor micro in a bowl game and yet at the same time within hayes and i'll have the same legacy Last was in clemson was involved. Refer also that's not a great legacy to have necessarily but it's a good football team. Many people coming back in. Like steve spurrier command. And you know he. He's a guy that likes to win. And i think he can win earlier. I believe that in the bud by heart. I think he's an excellent coach. I think the players will respond well to them. And i think we took a the longest losing program the country and took it to a bowl game and he'll take it from there to the championship level when you talk about coaching today And i think about francs being fired after he won nine games and i think about the expectations that go along ty willingham of course sopa but notre dame in his first year wins his first eight and then what has happened to him recently as well. What are the expectations of football coach at a major program today. Well i've been figured that basically very very impatient but you know they. They want instant success. One instant gratification and want to go the top. That the trina goes to the university of louisville inherits a very very good football team. From coach smith went onto michigan state. Now goes between things that a tremendous job but You know feel air. And he has those great athletes. They have great success. Urban meyer. who. I hired at university of notre dame you know he goes to Utah has instant success and everybody sitting there saying well. Hey he can do it let. Let's go get that guy that can do it here that we can win immediately will You know having code having smith there your quarterback as a pretty good asset to have it set about where somebody also had success. And i am sure they they look at it and say well gee they came in and they were down and all of a sudden they one. That's what we want to do and everybody all the fans wanted to two things who's going to be the new coach and he will be the next quarterback i. It's unbelievable i. i don't care you. You want to become unpopular to hurry. Go for being the second team quarterback to the i team the anything too is if you think about it and i was thinking about notre dame just the other day what should be their expectation level and i know the obvious as well to win championships but if you look at the landscape of football today lou there's a lot of teams that are able to get outstanding athletes that don't have the same requirements to get maybe to get into school There's a lot of schools have reputations of putting players into the pros and what have you so having said all of that. What should be the expectation at notre dame today as far as their season and their teams year in year out when further. Joyce hired may at the university of notre dame. He said. I wanna talk to you about a couple of things. Basically not negotiable. These are not negotiable university. Notre dame we are need understand. This now isn't even before i was ever offered the job at you. Know we we. We will not redshirt. We will not take transfer from junior. College will not take a transfer from another school against need search chain core curriculum classes for years of english. Three years of math through calculus at center players are going to miss practice because of late classes or or or labs or tutors or things along that line. The players are going to live on campus. We are going to have great facilities. You have nothing to do with the discipline but athlete on campus We don't pay a whole lot You're not allowed to president of the university. Notre dame was the rule when say they gave the president rates once that they could give me a raise anyone on all that and he said with the we're expecting to compete for a national championship at least once every three or four years and I didn't find anything wrong with ed. And we did the head it. I think that should be their expectations. Not necessarily this year even next year. But i do think They expect Charlie wise to compete for the national championship. And i think he will. The same things are saying about notre dame they said about whenever procedure went there years ago. They said it. When i was there i remember my first year recruiting at notre dame. My aunt had us fifty eight to sixty year before. I got there in their last football game on national television and You go into a home to recruit a young man that have all these That have all these articles in there. About how Notre dame can't win anymore and the schedules to tough. There's all this. And there's all that. And i just don't believe that i i think you know. The sec schedule's pretty tough When i was at university dame might think at fifty four percent of games ever coach there were against a top twenty five football teams. But that's part of notre dame you play the best you know. We played washington when they're really good. We played tennessee. We played texas We we we played Miami florida played. Florida state You just that's just the way you did it at notre dame and I don't think it's any different now. I might be a little bit down right now but yeah. I think it's going to be fine but lou. Isn't it a little bit different. In the sense. That i used to think of notre dame and you probably going into a home where you know it was. I want this kid. The kid's gonna sign right there. It was like with john wooden at ucla. I mean john recruiting because everybody wanted to come and play for john wooden at ucla during those particular years but now the competition it. It's almost like well. We've got a pro passing program so if you're an outstanding quarterback you're going to go to this score that school i mean isn't the the mystique oh most of notre dame and not to their own detriment or fall but isn't it a little bit perceived differently today might be but i don't think necessarily it should be. I mean on tv every saturday. One time when i said notre dame we had fifty seven players active in the nfl. The next was penn state with thirty nine and third with southern cal with thirty eight But we we had to work hard. Recruit again we. We found uphill struggle. But here's the different. We could go to california and would we went after navigate. It was us usc or ucla. When would end attack between us. Texas tech today and you went into florida as a youth. Florida state miami and florida. You went into nebraska to be between you and the university of nebraska. You could go anywhere in the country and you would have legitimate chance to recruit the best athlete in that state but you would have to use the beat. The home state and you didn't always do that but when they start talking about well. Nfl i want this type of program. Notre dame's not a four year decision. Support here decision. What do you do in your football's over guarantee you're gonna play in the nfl with china education. You'll get what are you gonna learn. And are you going to be better prepared to go in there. You know i was watching Tonight on tv On some sports show where they had the ten major mistake officials made and one of them was grown bettas called tails and the guy said hatch. And i had to laugh because a whole time as notre dame the first thing i said the locker room before the game was we will call tales. We always called. This was a game. But i just think that You're still a forty year decision. Not a four year decision. You talk about the only thing that's going to change it from where you are today to where you'll be five years from now the books you read the people you meet in a dream a dream and the baby. You're gonna meet university in our day and they're going to be the ones that are going to be illness companies and being. Ceo's and they're going to be the leaders that those are the people you're gonna come in contact with and then you get him on campus. Let them talk to your athletes now. The guy that doesn't feel comfortable in that environment isn't gonna get isn't gonna fit well notre dame anyway and now there were always people that didn't want the discipline did want the the challenge. Academically didn't want to have to work that hard on their academics guy that they won't be interested in the university of notre dame necessarily but one thing i used to laugh about was you would read. You would read these top twenty two football players in america. What schools air considered and other day. It'd be listed on about eighteen oven. Maybe seven of them. We were recruiting because we couldn't get in school academically. But they would always put notre dame was one of their schools Florida not because it made them look good so to speak and I think notre dame will get back. I really do because it's a national school a special school. One of the thing that i think is the lou holtz legacy when it comes to football in. It's almost like parenting. In a sense. You mentioned about urban meyer. I think a barry alvarez a host of other coaches you must feel awfully proud of the the legacy of lou holtz from the coaches that went on from underneath year wing onto other programs either as assistance or successful head coaches as well. I've always felt that. I learned this from woody. Hayes have an obligation to prepare your coaches to become head coaches. I'd always explain why we did things and how we did it. the philosophy at center. I think we've made it look simple that everybody would come in and they go. I can do that. I wanna be head coach. But i went down. Visit very alvorada in preparation for the bogue. Gabi speed come down and one time we had about. I don't know maybe a sixty some former graduate assistants were either in major college or professional that had been graduate assistant said many people gone on u. p. care coach for me at the university of arkansas. We we started him out You know monte kiffin coach for him in the defense coordinator tampa bay et cetera. Just you know it's just so many coaches you enjoy it and that's one of the reasons why you wanna talk to me. Now's not because. I prepare them but because of the contribution they made our success but not mind. There's there's their contribution to my success is far greater mike. Entre bution to there's
Atlanta - Social media thrilled with JT Daniels performance, but ponders why Kirby Smart didn’t play him sooner
"From dog nation. Social media thrilled. Jt daniels performance. But ponders why kirby smart didn't play him. Let's welcome in the author of that article connor. Thank you for being with us. First of all. Let's talk about the good news. I the fact that he played well for those who missed the game and it was not exactly the feature game of the day How did he play. I thought he was fantastic. Four hundred yards four touchdowns as the first georgia quarterback to do that since twenty thirteen for a program that has had lingering questions about this going back even pass through the twenty nine thousand nine season to have a performance like this especially when they couldn't run the ball. At all this was the worst rushing performances. One thousand nine hundred eighty six which is a total yards. Jt daniels doesn't play the way he does it. I think it's pretty fair to say. The georgia probably loses to mississippi state team numbers. Not that highly thought of coming into saturday. We're talking to kinda raw and lane kiffin alluded to that as well. Which is just a shocking statement. Is it not that we we ended up getting to this point for those who have not followed the vagaries connor of jt daniels. Do we know what the hold up was with him. in terms of clarence yeah so. His dad came out and made some comments today. You can read them a dog nation where he wasn't one hundred percent ready to go and august and even september. We know he wasn't clear to play in. That arkansas game came out right before the auburn game. Second game of the season and said jt daniels physically clear to play. Football games and reality is yours. Second game of the year. We didn't end up seeing him until the seventh game. We know he took that knee. Brace off prior to the tennessee game and practices in warm ups. But for whatever reason we didn't see him it may have been an issue of how comfortable he was in his knee. And the level of mobility that kirby smart was looking for that's something he's referenced. Many times based off what we saw on saturday that mobility was there the ability to make plays in really. I think the biggest question at least fans people who follow the program asked me or how close was jt daniels to what we saw on saturday back on november seventh when georgia played florida because if daniels plays like he did on saturday against florida. There's a real chance of jordan. Finds a way to at least made that game closer and possibly even win. It just truly amazing to think about how different this georgia season is and while they're having a better season than most two losses of Effectively out and georgia was expecting to be in atlanta at the end of the year and not watching on television or playing in another game. Just give us your your your read on the energy that has now maybe been brought back to a program that was seemingly dead in the aftermath of the florida game. It was a it was a mighty big fall from grace. Do you think this is going. Yeah people's energized. Even i think if. Jt daniels keeps playing away. He does. It is gonna keep people interested in tuned in the rest of the season. 'cause you point out. This is georgia program. Where going eight and two this year in a burst in the peach bowl. That doesn't do it for them. There was a lot of negative energy around this program. Losing the florida so for daniels will come out. Look good look like a possible at least certainly this season and potentially even long term solution at the quarterback position there for georgia. I think that's huge place. While again against south carolina and finishes the season out strong. I do think that can build a lot of momentum towards that twenty twenty one season when a lot of these skill players. That played really well on saturday night. Also come back to the storage team.
What Will Coach Nick Saban's Absence Mean For Alabama Football Game Against Georgia On Saturday?
"To Jordan Rogers Course the Tennessee Kentucky game to mark Jordan. Let me bounce around a little bit and everybody's talking. Around the country about Auburn about Obama and Georgia and Nick Sabin. You've been on the field with head coaches and you how important that position is except nick? Sabin doesn't really do much on the offensive side, but he does a lot on the defensive side. What what would what will his absence mean? Demar on that sideline? I think it's huge and I would argue quickly Paul I. Think he does do a lot on the offensive side. I have able to sit down and watch a ton of Alabama TV film writer TV Games because we're I'm usually broadcasting a game remember back when it was Lane Kiffin Colin place remember how much we saw them but in heads and communicating on the sideline. So there are a lot of adjustments in feedback that Nick Sabin Gibbs. To operative coaches but again, the defensive side is going to be missed most here's what I'll say I like I. Haven't seen good teams have great game plants going into Games. Great teams make great adjustments in. That's the difference with Nick Sabin, his ability to adjust in game going back to the National Championship game against Georgia pull the plug on. jalen hurts put to a ton of low in. That's a big adjustment that you see so many. Small. Adjustments that come from the minded Nick Sabin in game because he's done this. So long at such a high level things that people don't see that he's able to see and he has an instinct. So that's where they're gonNA miss him the most in a close game when adjustments need to be made and as well on the opposite side. Right? You've got a guy that good of defense he's going to walk over to Steve Sarkisian go hey. If they're playing this coverage. Here's where the week I'd go this right. He's GonNa give subtle adjustments and hints and tips to what to do on both sides of the ball. So I think the the presence, not only from a figurehead of what he means to that program, but the ability to adjust in Game I. Think it's a big loss.

"I saw him at the SEC SEC meaning head coaches before covert started. So got a chance to visit with him there and and again, thank him for. Doing what he did option and he gave me and I sent him along text when I got the job. Here I think the day I. got it. In Him and was really grateful because I wouldn't be here without him. He he laughed the other day when in in response to a comment, you had made I don't want to misquote. It's that would be terrible. Maybe you talked about his age I think the word was elderly I don't think I what did you mean by that? The other than the fact that he'll be sixty nine in three weeks? Well, thank you for letting me explain it because it was as normal taken out of context saying the question was about the matchup about me against him and I said, well, we're not playing each other I said that'd be more favorable for us you know from. Age standpoint and he just had hip surgery. So I, would like to think you know he would struggle to cover me So I'm glad that I saw made him laugh I don't think you've ever been able to do that Paul. That was good to see him. Laugh labile sent me messages. They've never seen a press conference like that. Coach I. I think the list of people. Alive that have made coach Sabin Laugh is pretty pretty pretty small. Don't you think? Yeah. It is I used to you can ask Kirby sometime or Jeremy that used to be my goal on. Friday night meal. For the game. Coordinators would sit with him in a table. Has My goal every meal is I'm GonNa find a way to get him to smile and laugh at some point in this meal so They kind of had fun watching that. I know it's Seen the past but. How would you characterize your relationship with him? Because you you came in there you weren't some aspiring young coach. You'd already been the coach of the raiders and in SC in Tennessee I mean, you were pretty established. Well I described as successful. You know you know we had an unbelievable run together and. Some Championship. So was it perfect? No, but I don't think any relationships are especially when you don't know each other I really did not know him so I didn't you know. I didn't know what it was like he didn't really know me and so I think in any relationship that takes some time in so and it was again, I was coming from Pete Carroll last time assistant coach so very different work environment. So you know I probably didn't adjust as well as I should right away and it took some time. You told me something once I think you went in there. Before the bowl preparation and I can't remember exactly how you described it. But you said coach Saban had you over for dinner I. Mean You Guys Really Spent a lot of time bonding before he hired you what was. What do you remember about that period? Well I. think that says a lot about coach. You know how thorough he is on things instead of just a lot of times we just interview coaches and hire him you know he wanted to. Have me over the house to dinner and and get to know and talk about different things besides just the offense and in philosophy and stuff. So. That was a very extensive interview. Better what before you go coach? We're two weeks in and obviously this is the third week and we've talked. Periodically leading up to the season. Ask how difficult is it just dealing with all the outside noise, the extraneous issues, the testing I mean these are things that you know a lot of us in the media forgotten about now we're watching football every Saturday, but it never leaves a coaching staff I'm sure there's always there's always a lot of concern. Yeah, it's just been bizarre Paul, and now you got a hurricane come in. So we we don't have team meetings in a normal setting team room. You know we're testing three times a week You never know when players shut down and you know you're gonNA, learn that morning that they can't practice in play and so it's it's just been. It's been new for all of us but in our kids have done a great job and our medical staff has been awesome. Before you go you mentioned Kirby a minute ago A. So much been made out a coach saving and his relationships and games with former assistants that that is obviously he Jimbo. Last week you this week Kirby playing Jeremy Pruitt or there's all kinds of buzz. In the twitter sphere about something that you and Pruitt had going on can you can you share that with us? I don't someone said that today to me or sent something and I'm not really sure what that was. Now we're in a group text with me Kirby Jeremy and will in. So I must have said something in there that was funny I don't know So it's a pretty interesting group chat. Hold on a second we. Need more information this tax. I mean. It's not like just four guys who go out and drink beer together I mean these are pretty prominent people. What happens in this text a lot of stuff sometimes it's just you know, hey, how you guys doing with Kobe or practice idea or something like that just sharing with each other and sometimes it's personal funny stuff I guess. So it's interesting. Group. Three three good guys. You guys have a commonality between all of you. I guess that's pretty obvious. It's Nick Sabin. We all have the same father. Day please share them with US coach. Hey. I know you got get get back but hey, thanks for making time and best wishes Saturday especially with the weather and come back soon we really appreciate it..

"Lane right after the. Listening to the Paul. FINEBAUM show podcast. This all afternoon. LONG WE HEAD TO OXFORD and welcome in Lane Kiffin head coach at all on this coming off the truly incredible win. That has really given his program a shot near on coach. Thanks for being on and congratulations it must feel pretty good. It was Paul exciting game for fans. Our players and hadn't won a lot of road SEC games so. It was just so neat to see how excited the players were in the locker room and felt like he won the Super Bowl. So especially being down fourteen early in the third and making that comeback awesome. A coach. I'M GONNA put off as long as I can talking about the next week's game but but I am interested just. For a program that has certainly had a lot of ups and downs. How does that change the trajectory or does it? I'm sorry I lost there for a second Paul. You repeat that how does a win like that changed the momentum and how do you build off of it? Well it was awesome. You know you always talk about learning how to win and you gotta find a way to win whether it's two to nothing or forty, two forty whatever it is. So you know it was it was great to have because we could have lost that game a lot of times you know they played they played great and Lot Areas Kentucky and deserve to win a lot of different times. So found a way to win now, I just got to keep it going build on that momentum and that confidence. Let's talk about your offense because it has been high flying in in both games. The defenses is maybe a more more more of pressing challenge but just kind of go through your mindset especially to really interesting quarterbacks. Yeah they've done really well offense versus what I think are to to really good defenses that give you a lot of challenges in Florida and Kentucky So you know the offense hasn't been as consistent as we would like you know it's a little bit big little. We haven't run it as well as we like, but mackrell has been great in the passing game receivers have really stepped up and made a lot of plays in Kenny the tight end so. We're need to continue to do that, but we're going to have to run the ball better and we're gonNA, have to play better defense. You know we're not gonNA be able to win like this and the SEC for a long. I know that there's been a lot of anxiety about the timing of the game and it's been shifted with this hurricane coming. I know coaches. Prepared be prepared for everything doesn't matter where you are but but how do you prepare for what looks like? It could be a pretty pretty rainy night. Well we just do what we can. You know there's not that much to do. We practiced with the wet ball like I'm sure everybody does So you know whatever it is we'll just have to handle the adversity the challenges with it it'll be the same for them. And so we'll see. Let's get to Alabama, second and so much has already been made. Predictably. Of Your relationship with coach saving, you've been very Lottery always about your time there How important was it to sign up with him at the end of the thirteenth season and spend. Three years with him. It was awesome. I mean to whatever forty, one and three or something like that, and two regular season losses, and you know three sec championships through the players a year at different positions and. and so that time was amazing and then to be able to learn from him and you know I said the other day you know you end up finding yourself doing a lot of things like him which I don't know that I would have said that you know six years ago but I'd I'd be stupid if I wasn't. You you've worked with some really great coaches You spent a Lotta time. Under under Pete Carroll who knew who run it s C produce a lot of great coaches including you and Sarkissian and odor on just to just to name a couple. How. Would you compare that time under Pete Carroll? Versus the time under coach Sabin to successful coaches who have won championships Pete Carroll is wanted one them at both levels obviously saving won six National Championships in college. Yeah just fortunate you know to to be able to work for those two guys and be part of the two two of the best runs in the history of college football thirty four straight until that Texas game at USC and then I think twenty, four straight. You know when when Alabama, thing you know came to an end with coach and I. So those are two pretty remarkable runs to be able to be a part of an in offense coordinator for now. You'd ask to compare now it was fun because you win you win a lot of games but both places are extremely different. You know I think everybody knows that coach Carroll coach saving run completely opposite programs from everything in it. Coach just. There's so much has been made it will be listen. It's a four hour football game and your relationship with coach saving will be closely monitored the pre-game conversation. I know those are usually pretty meaningless but this is the first time you've you've met him before obviously when you were Tennessee. But this is the first time. Since you left it's not like it's going to be the first time you guys have talked what has your relationship been like since you left Alabama? Well. I saw him at the SEC SEC meaning head coaches before covert started. So got a chance to visit with him there and and again, thank him for..

The only the only reason joe is that. You know. To. Two fifths of college football hasn't been hasn't played yet. They don't deserve to be in there. I watch I've watched both of those games and the first game they should loss and obviously they did lose last week and. They're in another situation this week I, don't need to tell you how important that Oklahoma Game is Texas people and. I mean I'll Oklahoma now is their season is pretty much been blown up. Would I would think a pretty dangerous team Saturday. Well, I hope Oklahoma. Beats Texas being. Similar we played four hundred plus years. Out to ask you something I, I remember talking to I think Paul Manziel Johnny's father. I can't remember his name, his name but I met with him the day when I was in college station for the Alabama game in two thousand, thirteen, I'm sure you remember that was like one of the biggest game ever and. I been on Game Day and he had come by and we met I think I'd lunch right afterwards and he told me the recruiting story. Mandela recently was going to Oregon wasn't he? For several places including he wanted to Texas, but they didn't. Want to right quarterback. Yeah. He told me the whole story I. Guy MANDL's father and Yeah I. I'd forgotten I should have known that because he told me literally the entire. Nine yards on what happened with Johnny. So but best your wife I hope she improves. Thank you for sharing the story. To do. We enjoy watching your program. I. Don't know why we don't have more ex-colonies but Try To. Colwyn more off I. Hope so well, thank you very much Let's check in with TRAE next down. Hey trae. Hey Well, I gotTa say something about Auburn game this past Saturday. And As. An Auburn Fan that was kind of pathetic the pied level and office while the Serbo. Padma woman defense alone was terrible. The play. Collie on the offense of style, the ball was. Not. Really good. And I'm just thinking when are we actually GonNa? Play like. Auburn football or where we can just run it down people's throats. Tired of just. Watching us. First of all, you let me let me say this trae. Yet, to have offensive a line, nick a block before you can do that and that's pretty fundamental not that I'm telling you anything you know, hey, thanks for the call. We have to go to a break. We are going to head out and come back and hopefully catch up with lane kiffin. The head coach at Ole Miss Forward to talking.

"Got skilled guys. They've got a quarterback Derek King. They've got pace eighty five claims against Florida state that should Dr Brent venables nuts. I just think that. Despite Jalen Phillips and a pretty cool turnover chain that I read has like four thousand sapphires on it. I don't think their defense is quite ready for prime time against the t Mike Ponson yet, and so yeah, I think cleansing a win but this is great for the ACC and going forward. I'd like to see the ACC do nick, Sabin subjects thing for the SEC, which is you know more conference games because clemson Adan hasn't played Miami since two thousand fifteen in a regular season game. Before we get off that subject, I want to ask you about Davos Sweetie who's had I would say pretty bizarre summer into fall miscues some awkward moments and and I haven't. Read this story maybe you have but apparently, he said something else about the. Coaches are letting their programs takeoff on election day and. If you're not that familiar with it, then I'll I'll I'll I'll I'll move on but but I saw something where he am I correct on this gene where he he talked about having to re interfering with his practice schedule. Right, the way is a lot of players the day off on election day which. Yeah Dabbagh said I just don't get it which you know maybe he's toned up there, but he as you know is one of the few coaches.

Now Stefan Gilmore the great defensive back for the Patriots. Tested Positive Patriots learned the result Gilmore underwent additional test and a rerun. The NFL standard protocols that confirmed he is a new positive case the broncos are scheduled. To visit, New England on Sunday back to the titans, you already had one game postponed with the steelers, and now we have a showdown with the bills that might be in jeopardy. Well, it is in jeopardy right now and you get to the point where the contingency plans. We've talked about the back end of the schedule. Can you add a couple extra? Weeks are you going to add a couple extra weeks just because the titans have had two games that have been postponed and then you're going to say to the steelers in buffalo bills pay you guys got to play those extra weeks that we have. I don't know how many standalone games are going to have but we're going into week five right now. And I think it's pretty remarkable. That just week five and I was told that midway through the season or the latter part of the season. That's when you're going to have players who go a little rock here. If you're out of the playoff chase I, don't know if it gets better. I was also told that you know at the start of the season that teams were going we're looking at. Being in a bubble in a hotel. So when you're at home, let's say the buccaneers they're in a hotel. And you're just trying to bubble is your team I.

Lane Kiffin was with us a few minutes ago Pete Tamil. Randy in Wisconsin is up next hey randy. Hi, Paul what a pleasure to talk to you. Thank you enjoy your show. Thank you. So my question my question to you is, have you heard of any student athletes? For. Students athletic organizations participating in the not to play sports this fall. no. Should they? Well let me make sure I understand you're talking about individuals or groups of individuals. While talking about number one individuals or. Organization Yeah let me cry myself there are there are I. Think I've Seen Sixty or seventy college players maybe more now because you're getting some from the big ten who have. Who who have opted out who are not playing? I think there are about. Sixteen or Seventeen, the SEC it's pretty widely dispersed but. There are individuals who are not playing correct. But I should they participate in the fact that they will not be playing because of the virus? Well. I think most have said that yes, I mean there's a player I saw the other day who said he was about to have a child so he did not want to put his wife or newborn or his grandma or his parents grandparents of the of the newborn at risk. And the double A. and most of the not all the conferences have branded waivers that you will not leave your eligibility or your scholarships. So yes. There are I misunderstood your question, but they are there are a number of players who are doing that. Okay Paul. Regarding the fact that college football players. Try To be played tried to be paid last year for for what that have done to this whole scenario. Well. I I think it's an interesting question. I think it would be extremely difficult not to pay them after all this for this reason. At a number of schools the. Football players the only people that are sanctioned to be on campus doing anything, and if that is the case and I think, you could make a pretty strong arguments that they are no longer amateurs and they are literally working for the school. Very good part I thank you for your comment. Randy appreciate your call. Thank you very good. Good to have you on. Rick is up next. Hey, rick, you're on the air from Tennessee Hi Paul thanks for having me time listener kate show. Thank you very much. I just WANNA say I. You know I usually when I call, you is strictly about football and usually ut but just football and. I. Love The game. But all this. This call it it's starting to really worry me Paul We're in a pen DIMIC as they say. and. The fact that it is a pandemic. Doesn't it? When you look it up pretty much means everybody's eventually gonNA, have it no. No everybody's not going to have it About Ninety Eighty five, ninety percent of the population well You know this country has about three hundred in some odd million people. May Take a couple of years. Well, I mean. I'm talking. You better not just looking for depending on your age and an underlying condition. Yeah. Seventeen year old gets it to the odds are good that they won't have trouble although this kid from. Georgia state today quarterback. Caught it and they discovered myocarditis and they're concerned But you know I'm not looking to get it and I'm sure you're not either if you get it, you get it it's all you can do I mean it's a mild case people die from it but I I don't think everyone's A. Relation I mean yeah. I mean, if you're eighty five or younger. And Ninety nine point nine percent of you get over it with no real problem maybe a few get hospitalized. The overall statistics are very good for for most people getting it but you know what? You don't know though you don't WanNa be that one out liar who? WHO CANNOT HANDLE IT So, and by the way. The expectation is that sometime in the next? Couple of months there'll be there'll be a vaccine. Vaccine is not a guarantee just A. Because, the vaccine probably isn't going to help those who already are most likely to die from it. Anyway. No. Of course not. I mean the flu vaccine every year helps if you're a healthy. Thing. You don't want any of this stuff but. if you're in good health, you have a better chance of getting but perfectly, perfectly well, people die every day and people look at. All shake their what happened Pro Athletes, drop dead jogging. That's happened. Many times in the path guy that the guy that wrote the first huge. Jogging Book Dr, Jim fix, dot of a heart attack while jogging. Go figure that one out. I had the book. And inspired me to start jogging I'm thinking maybe I shouldn't.

AMMO was probably one of the most interesting visits we've had with him Pete. Peterson extremely negative on the season two weeks ago he told us there was a twenty percent chance of having this season a five. percent chance of finishing a season today he said I have talked to a number of people who are more positive today than they have been at any point during the pandemic.

"Just in terms of these next five weeks coach because you can't help but hear the noise around the country and you may even be have been called by players and various places but it's important to get to September twenty six but I'm really interested in your thoughts on those players. Who aren't playing? In a couple of major leagues, especially, the big ten in the pack twelve place you you spent a lot of time. Yeah. I. Feel Bad for him and I know people say, Oh, he's. He's saying that because he wants players here. From there. I'm not saying it for that I'm saying that 'cause 'cause I think about those players that work so hard especially the seniors you know maybe you don't you know there's an argument about whether you give immediate eligible younger kids but you know for a senior, you know it hasn't graduated like a lot of them going into senior year. He's worked everything for his senior year and then you're GonNa say you can't go play somewhere else because your school decided to shut shut down football your conference did. I don't I mean we're finally doing some things in the best interest of the student athlete. You know which has been a long time coming and you know to not do that. It makes no sense to me. You had some comments the other night here about transfer in some of our colleagues. did not take kindly to your remarks. I'm interested though to have you expounded on not to get you in more trouble with sports critics who have nothing better to do but In re in, have you heard or can you say that in terms of players from other leagues looking for someplace to go? That may be playing. What are your thoughts on that? Yeah I mean I, I was like I said the other day when I asked about it, I was told that that will not go into Arabe Waiver Process and so You know just because you're score conference shut down, you know you're not gonna get that's not going to allow you to get immediate eligibility go play somewhere you know and so like I said, I don't understand that at all especially like I said. For senior, going into senior year work. So hard you know draft on the line you know you're not you're not a first or second round pick where you're GONNA opt out like like most of them should. But these other guys that are late rounds or free agents and you got a chance to enhance your status and other teams in other players get to go play. So they can enhance their draft status but you can't. I mean. Do the right thing. Before you go. I mentioned the five weeks. I mean we were five weeks away from the start usually in late August you're ready to roll. I know everyone wants the play but but this is this is an interesting part of the of the of the calendar now that it seems like it's going to be a long time to try to keep everybody focused what are your thoughts on that and how do you do it? Yeah. This is that's a challenge Paul I. Don't think a lot of people have talked about it. It's it's similar more to you know how the NFL is. You know where you're in training camp I five six weeks you know we just don't have the preseason games so you know to get excited about. So it is a long time You know we're being careful with that. Now the good thing is they did start the twenty hour rule. So it's not like can't like it used to be where they're here all day long or two days to two days off a week they can't practice so I do commend that set up. You know I didn't still way of doing that that. Okay. Here's an amount of time but. It's not like normal training camp. Coach thanks for dropping by good to see you and All the best these next few weeks hopefully, we'll see. At a game soon, that would be great. All right Paul, can you please stop predicting that we're going to be coach saving for the first time ever the former coach because that's a rat poison. That a couple of weeks ago. Coach thanks for being on that was that was great to have you. Go. Ain't Kiffin. Joining US monitoring those they're great finish for the coach. We will take a break back with much much more. Don't let a hangover, slow you down fight it with good. He's hangover pain relief at the speed of powder. Good. He's saying over is the first hangover offering from analgesics brand. It temporarily.
"kiffin" Discussed on The Paul Finebaum Show
"Football leaves Keer. The Paul Finebaum, show our to podcast. We welcome you back. The second hour is live and we're really looking forward to this next guest. He's Lane Kiffin head coach at Ole Miss and coach Kiffin joining us from campus as. The rebels still have a little bit of time to coach. How's it going? Good afternoon great. I'm really looking forward to the interview to all on the same page well. Okay You promised me the other day you tape the coaches meeting last Thursday morning, and you're going to play it for us with all the descent going on. So can you just hit the play button and we'll all sit back and listen. I don't think that the commissioner be very happy about that. Paul. It was interesting call. Well, we we've been reading about it and and I know you pretty well, I doubt that. You were one of those complaining, but I would imagine you. You've been part of this league twice now What's it like? Being reunited with all your esteemed colleagues. Well, it's interesting I. Didn't realize until that first SEC meeting that we had in Birmingham this time around and I believe if I'm right coach saving, myself were the only ones. Were the only ones in the meeting that were there in whatever two, thousand nine in Tennessee won the day I took the job. So I just saw today and I realize you're your coaching football you're not in charge of the stadium, but I thought governor a few minutes ago in Mississippi governor reads announced that there would be I think twenty percent capacity that's not the big news. The big news is no tailgating. The I know that doesn't affect you as a coach, but it does affect the fans does it not? Yeah it does but you know it is what it is and You know good decision you know based off of social distancing issues in the spread. So a lot of decisions are being made like that that you know people aren't happy with, but you know people really for the most part following protocol with Corona and everyone's talking about the students. But you know I drive through downtown. I, see pictures on the Internet you know most aren't falling either so that makes it really difficult to open up the grow. Yeah I it is a big deal but know Miss Missile one season coach I on on the the more important issues of football team back we talked to you some time ago and that was before voluntary workout had had commenced how how's it feel now and what are you seeing and sensing? From your football team. What are excited to be back? We've had three practices and you know. They're always excited this time of year, but you know to have it taken away from them from Spring and then potentially not playing all at one point You can see how excited they are to be around, and so like I've said before challenges not motivating them, they're plenty motivated the challenges them having disciplined away from here. So we can stop the spread because really at the end of the day, everybody wants to lift weights. Every wants to practice run sprints and learn offense defense but. Probably the teams are win. The most games are the ones that have the least players out for the Games because of Cronin 'cause they manages well. Yeah in on that front What are you doing I mean I realize the season's five weeks away but will there be a set of protocols and precautions not not the normal safety but just to make sure that your own units don't infect each other and you're you're left going playing Alabama at home or another key game without. Critical people I know you can't avoid it, but you can also try to keep them separated to some degree or can you? Yeah, we can. You know I'm not worried about when they're here I, mean we we've got you know team meetings that we have out in indoor facility. You know with everybody spaced out and their instead of the team room you know we split our special teams means you know so we never have everybody together and so I'm not worried when they're here. You know they do a good job and we make them. You know it's it's when they're away from here and then they go into an environment of the college environment and they look around and no one's doing it. So you know it's it's difficult for a young kid. Either looted do it a couple times and I realized there's only so much coach can say but how? What means are you employing to try to drill that into their head or do they already know it and you just have to let them do whatever they they think is right. Now I mean when we talk about it all the time, Paul and you know the biggest point them. You may not feel like you matter because you're redshirt your fourteen. But you don't you don't do this right you know and you you can infect to starter. So. Or senior that you know loses part of their season or towards loses the end of their senior year. So you know it's really a big challenge. Have you sought at all because we always when we get the schedules which we did the other night you you tend to look at, Road Games home games and man this school has an advantage here or there but nobody really knows do they when you go when you go on the road and there's fifteen sixteen, seventeen, thousand people, it's not going to be the same road environment and I know you won't know until you get there but I'm just curious if someone who is coach at a lot of different places and a lot of really tough environments, what are your thoughts? Well, it's GonNa be completely different. You know definitely won't need silent count that's for sure so. We'll be in Tiger stadium into the season and you know we'll be able to to. To yell the audibles to the quarterback on the five yard line. So you know it it'll be very different I think kind of almost be eerie as you play you know for the players you know like. Lap for the SEC this would be less than a spring game. You know attendance so. it'll be very strange. Yeah. You've been on the sidelines of a couple of Spring Games when there were ninety, five thousand people. At Brian Dennehy Stadium. So you know what that feels like. Just in terms of these next five weeks coach because you can't help but hear the noise around the country and you may even be have been called by players and various.

The Legend of Coach O
"Why this much emotion coach such a big game? They beat US eight years. I got tired of your no so I mean it was time I told the team tonight. We taught allied. If you follow college football you probably know that voice. He belongs to a guy who's loud road tough in might be more suited for his job than anyone in America. LSU head coach at Oberlin today ahead of Monday's national championship game against Clemson. We tell the story of a man who seems like he was built in a lab to coach football in Louisiana and why despite that. It's actually surprising that he ended up there at all times. It's Friday January tenth this is espn daily presented by Dell Small Business David. How's it going is going quite it will mean a thank you for having me David Hale writes about college football for ESPN so your story is about coach? Ed Osea Ron really the legend coach. But I want to start by talking to you about perhaps his most noteworthy characteristic which is of course his boy to get to where you wanna go see like you have to go undefeated you have to beat Alabama you have to keep on going and then you have to win Sec Championship then you got football playoff oilfield so if you start thinking about my favorite thing in the World David is being in a room and watching someone here at for the first time because because it really never fails to shock. Anyone who's hearing we knew was going to win that game. Today we started Monday. NO-GO windows gape go. Don't you want to write his autobiography. Just so he can also do the voice over work. What's on the menu at the odor on household today? What are we got cocoa? My mom made a special gumbel but it was on. We'd better win the game. It would just be so wonderful. One of his first jobs was at Arkansas. As assistant strength coach the players there thought he was pranking them they. They didn't think that anyone actually talks that way. And they couldn't make heads or tails of what he was saying. Either it was. He's just he would get excited and start saying things with this gravelly Cajun accent and then he pointing the direction and they would just go do whatever was in that direction because they had no idea what he he was saying but he was saying it loud enough that they were afraid of him and it was only after like he'd been on the job for a month or two that they were like. Well I you know he's kept us up a long time. I guess that is his voice. We love the voice. Everyone does now but it at times says constant now. Yeah he's coached in some places that are not Louisiana. Yeah everybody talks about how he is Phyllis you but he was in Miami he was in Syracuse. He was in USC and and his last stint in USC he came on to replace place Lane Kiffin as the interim coach there had some success at USC. And I think there were folks there who would have loved to have given him the fulltime job because he had that success. But there were also folks Has Been reported by numerous folks I think including Bruce Feldman that the voice was one of the reasons you couldn't hire him as US's sees coach because you're the voice of the program. You're the face of the program you're the identity of the program and that's not USC right that's not La. Look at how he talks. He's not the model of USC so we can't hire them and there's a lot of folks at USC or probably kicking themselves for that exact thought process now. Well the voice is a perfect fit for Lsu else you I mean just about everything about co is a perfect fit for Lsu. It's almost like if you reverse engineered a coach based on Louisiana Anna Football. It would look sound and act like him and he's got roots right. In the state of Louisiana. He is from the Food Perish. It's bio country. Outside of New Orleans. His Dad grew bon shrimp boats ways just every bit the sort of central casting version of what we think of as Louisiana. You know if you've watched waterboy you kind of have a rough idea of what I think it owes runs. Background is one of the great anecdotes that his mom gave me. Okay so he was in second grade and broke his leg and the doctor fitted him for a cast. It went from foot all the way up to the upper thigh and he picked up some trudges out there and play football on crutches and about every week or so she would have to drag him back into the doctor's office to get fitted for a new cast because he would get it so dirty and muddy and mucked up from playing football in a full leg. CAST I'm sorry they let a second grader. Played football. I don't know that even let is the proper word there so much as he just went and did it So he kept playing in high school then college got to high school and he was a full grown man from day one one and he was a big guy and went to college as a defensive. LINEMAN ended up at Lsu for a year and hated it because for the first time in his life football ball was hard he was not having immediate success. He was not playing routinely He was being forced to go to classes. He wasn't super eager to go to and and he left. Lsu went back home and thought maybe that's the end of college football. And I'll go get a real by job like my dad and I'll go work on a shrimp boat and turns out. You may be surprised to learn that working on a shrimp boat is much less fun than in football And so I think that was you know when you talk to his mom that summer after he left. Lsu went back home to work. Real jobs was was a lot of ways sort of a turning point for coach. Oh and that he got a taste of what life is like when everything is not being handed to you to. How did he end back in football? He decided he needed to go play football again which meant he had to go back to college which was not really his favorite thing but he decided to go to northwest Louisiana State. That's where he finished his career and then went looking for football coaching jobs and the first job he could find was as a strength coach and soccer. Yeah shocker this. Like three hundred pound beast of a man finds a strength coaching job. And the job. Java's with Arkansas. Ken Hatfield to coach the time Ed walks in. And he's this beast of a man and he's got that voice and he's so excited and he's like I don't know if he can do this job but he sure looks the Bart's so we're going to hire them and tell you ended up getting into coaching. He worked at Arkansas for a little while and I think he really wanted to to do something. More than being the strength coach the ends up landing miraculously enough at the absolute heart of college football in the nineteen eighty s and early nineteen ninety S. Which is at the University of Miami? They celebrate a Miami the Hurricanes Complain and the coaching on the same staff. Tommytucker Ville tougher telling me they were. They went down to Key West on vacation. You want one year and they're in like this Nice restaurant having dinner and get the talking about football technique and overrun so excited about it. He likes slides tables out of the way and gets down the three point stance and he's trying to explain technique to to top Ville and he's like pushing tables and chairs out of the way and like diners are just looking over gawking. At what the heck is is this man doing your. But that's just sort of the approach that he brought and I think his time at Miami really offered him an opportunity to prove that ed behind that bluster and the Raspy gravelly cage invoice that there is a guy who really knows a heck of a lot about football. How did it go for him? In Miami off the field not great. He was someone who went out a lot. Drank drank a lot and the things that you could get away with when you're twenty northwestern Louisiana you don't get away with as a coach on the staff of one of the premier programs grams in college football. And so you know the story that really I think ended up up ending his career involved him being a bar. T was thrown out of the bar for being too intoxicated and he was not happy with that and ended up getting into a fight and legal proceedings. Happened in that essentially was the end of his time in Miami but I think it was also sort of a wakeup call for him so when he gets away from football ball it was a lot of ways probably very much like when he went back to work the shrimp boats after leaving. LSU Is that he kind of realized. This isn't the life that I want. This isn't who I WANNA be. I don't think that he shies away from those. Oh stories now. He's still shares them with current players in in the way of trying to relate to them and going through it and a lot of ways has probably been in what pushed him to turn things around and become the person that he is.
OU Football: Lane Kiffin may be flying coach these days, but he still has first-class goals at Florida Atlantic
"Because this week At this very moment me in Can I don't even know if I'm allowed to say I'm going to be hosting next week because, it's not going. To be you. But we'll get we'll get there I will have a new famed co host here for best week ever and we will be discussing. Everything that happened on college football what is one? Thing? That we will be saying Dari what's the one thing that you'll be saying right now as you're listening to this show driving around doing your. Errands on, Sunday morning, next week one thing one thing one thing that you know. That you're like this. Happened yesterday I can't believe it what? Do we know next week already the pressure will mount immediately Jim harbaugh And. I don't I'm not on this. Michigan Mellon I yesterday show gave our playoff teams and I shared with, my well he, had Michigan As one. A his, and he had Washington is one. Of his he may be in trouble after next week frankly but he's on the Michigan wagon I've said I've said a, couple of times. Jim Harbaugh could be the national. Coach of the year or Jim Harbaugh could be fired at the end, of the year Feels like a year right and I think they're going. To go down there and I like shape.

Don't think Notre Dame necessarily Notre Dame will to Michigan's defense is really good but. You're going to put them at night in south bend
"kiffin" Discussed on The Stephen A. Smith Show
"If they did less miles, would you not sign up for five years and go get lane kiffin from us though. Is that not the bay? You've. You've heard today, worse thing ever and I'll tell you why. And this is point of full disclosure. I am anything but camp kiffin all I am. What's the opposite of camp kiffin. That's me. I couldn't disagree more. Here's the thing about lane kiffin. Right. And I've said this before, and I've, I've said it privately. This may be the first time. I've actually said it public. Oh, he's the classic example of a guy born on third and thought he hit a triple. His his. He got to a position faced on his father and yeah, but for the most part though, here's the thing. All right. If you, some of us are fortunate to get certain things because of some connection. Yes. But when did he ever prove that he was worthy of that hook? Okay. Let's one yet another you want. What do you what has done? We're staying here for a second Lintz bickering, so. Okay. So his dad, Monte kiffin, legendary defensive coordinator gets him into Koji how many coaches kids out there a lot. You see a lot of goat's. How, how many number twenty five and offense coordinator USC did it work? Okay. Steve Sarkisian was also there, and you also have three of the best players, their generation in college football met liner, Reggie Bush even at Linda widened by anybody could run that all really. So now you're the guy that saying anybody who Nick Sabin is talent that is incorrect. That's not quite what I said. I was talking about that particular team at UCLA. Wasn't an Alzheimer okay time. So then it's Kiffan volt for getting hired at the raiders is the head coach that's Al Davis being of as correct? No, no, I'm not. I'm not blaming him for it. I'm saying that someone took a chance on him based on some other things, and he didn't live up to their expectation for anyone. And if you look at where that was headed, he had started turning that thing around really not his draft jamarcus Russell again l. David really? Yeah, it was turning around. He was getting something out of this guy. Gonna go to Tenessee has. Psomas overhead projector, press conference, which was awkward thing in sports betting goes Tennessee and he had a little bit about Madam going at Tennessee, and then the dream job momentum. He was recruiting how I don't know how fair everyone recruits, but he was recruiting well at Tennessee and his dream job comes open at USC. Now I get you lane. Kiffin reputation is failing up, but yes, the problem lane kiffin had this is his only problem. I believe in his stint at USC first of all they won. I forget what they close. It sees net with Barclay and had a lot of momentum going into the next year. I think their preseason number one, and they just had a. A little momentum stop at the beginning of the seniors get off to a good start, and they got fired if you beat them in Tempe. But his biggest problem at USC is he didn't understand that being a head coach in college, you have to shake hands, kiss babies go to booster events, implant ice with how do you not know that? How do you not new? They were head to do it, but he doesn't matter. He's been around enough. His father's been coaching enough. He was college, but he was with Pete Carroll in Pete Carroll. Did that l. as better as good as as well as anyone ever because has charismatic guy, but he saw it, he didn't have to do with though, but he saw it. He knows this part of the anyone who gets a head coaching job or anyone who aspires to, it knows or should know with the job requires. He's filled up his entire career. He goes Alabama. He has a lot of success because of Nick Sabin and the talent there. And then he messes that up..
Back in the college game, Chip Kelly focused on winning at UCLA
"Chip Kelly was gone to the different chip Kelly. When he left college. Football is at the top of his game, maybe not a national championship, but he built in Oregon program that was. At best good into a program that was excellent. And the second he likes citing top and very innovative. And then once he left and then Marcus mariota stay for another year for Markelle Fultz another couple years, whatever it was that whole organ thing, just kind of fizzled and they're, they're good. Again. They're not great. They're not, but good unions, the great Younis great facilities on he's a UCLA now piece in ESPN dot com. Talking about him and his approach, and it'll be interesting to see how it goes because I don't think anybody really cares how peculiar he is long as their winning games, but you can only be peculiar if you are winning and he doesn't really go for anything that isn't the film isn't really the players isn't really the game and college football. You have to have a little glad-handing go along with this unless you're just even Nick Sabin glad-handing little bit. I mean, that's one of the issues that lane kiffin had for years is he. I wasn't great around the people that he needed to be great. You know the the raw raw stuff lie the glad-handing, the the important handshakes that you need to make. That's not one lane kiffin does. May I always find it ironic that people would talk about how great he was as a recruiter, which means you're great in a room. I'm willing to believe it, but that also means you're only good in a room with very specific people like once their age extends beyond nineteen, right? You apparently have no social skills and chip Kelly is one of these guys that just seems like he has. He's he's almost like a football Rainman. Yeah, you know what I mean? Like he, he just he's one of these guys. That's a football savant. And in his lane, he's a genius. But if he's six inches outside of either side of the lane, he's just painfully uncomfortable. Yeah, I, I've told the story before when I was living in Houston and working there, they have the Lombardi awards where they bring in people, and there's a coach of your word, and there was a panel of all these guys and they. I mean, Mike Sherman was head coach. Texas a. and m. at the time, Bobby Bowden was there. There was one or two other guys in chip Kelly was there as well. Kevin, someone was there who's at Houston at the time. And all these guys get up and and do a ten minute speech on their program, and they're all great. They're captivating. They'll be room is laughing. Everybody's listening. They're good with their timing on the jokes. They're good with telling the stories, boom, boom, phone, like a comedian. That's got a really tight little said ten minutes in. They're often everybody's throat. And then chip Kelly comes up and it's like things everybody coming out and went and sat back down. Again. It was like, we will. What they lights come on this big banquet room and people start moving towards the coaches. Thanks, autographs, and all this kind of stuff. And Kelly practically ran for the exit and it's like, wow, he must be on this whole time. I thinking you don't good of a football coach. You have to be to to have that be your deal and still people are lining up to give you millions of dollars goat your
