"About Mississippi State we showed you. Are traveling to Georgia. We showed you that on Georgia schedule they have haven't home game at added to their schedule obviously, and that will be vanderbilt. So it's vanderbilt making their way to start to face Mike Leach in his first year at Mississippi State. I imagine the Mississippi State folks for happy about seeing vanderbilt no disrespect to the commodores but I think there's worse opponents that they could have drawn particularly in Mike Leach's first year not having the benefit of having a spring practice or off season conditioning program. This gives kind of the opposite ends of the Eastern Division, Standings at least from last year and see I want to remind people to as you're watching this keep this in mind you don't see dates. No. The dates are not out at this particular point. In fact, the dates that you thought you knew erase them they are gone. There will be new schedule with new dates to

Ed Orgeron is “almost certain” LSU will play
"Say hello to you on a Monday afternoon. We are marching through the. Month of July, we reached the twentieth day, and by this time in a week or two. Hopefully we'll have some good news or some news whatsoever about where we're going. If Eddo Sharana was in charge of college football, we wouldn't be having all these conversations. We would be getting ready for the season media. Days would be today perhaps, and it always will be telling us what to do. Well, that's what he thinks. And that's what he hoax and over the weekend with Mardi McGee he had this to say. This about my decision, the my gut feeling is gonNA play where we're preparing to play. I don't want my person like any other way. L. Coaches are thinking another way whether we start September a little bit later I don't know that for sure. Whether we play incomes outcome outburst. Whatever that happens I don't. That doesn't bother me. I. I do believe we're GONNA play. Certain that we are going to play I and you guys will agree with this. Sees, football. say Louisiana. These football pop culture needs football time to get.
Moussa Cisse is going to Memphis
"See say five star prospect originally in the class two thousand twenty one, but now I'm class. Two Thousand Twenty announced this afternoon that he is committed to the University of Memphis. Pippen Hardaway's Tigers over offers from Georgetown Georgia. Florida State Lsu and Kentucky for those unfamiliar. I guess you can on some level. Call him a quote local product because he did spend the past year at Lausanne collegiate school, which is seven miles from the Memphis. MEMPHIS campus, but he's not really a local product. He was born in West. Africa moved to New York, in two thousand, fifteen played at Saint Benedict's prep in New Jersey played at Christ King in New York, then relocated a Memphis, the plate laws and this past season led the links to a state title, one Mr Basketball and the state of Tennessee average eighteen point, four points, fifteen point, three rebounds, and a ridiculous nine point two blocks per game, and now we have college basketball season. He says he'll play for the Memphis Tigers. norlander break it down. What do you make a penny? Hardaway lending a five star center in two straight recruiting classes last time. It was James Wiseman this time Mussa. Break it down Oh. Yeah, here's what I got a question for you I. Mean Here's here's was Gary Perez? Is tweet on Wednesday afternoon breaking all caps course. This was an all caps breaking the way I don't i. You know what expected to go to Memphis. I. Don't know if all caps was warranted there. Can you take me inside the thought process versus not in a? Regular grammar versus going all caps in that moment, please. Young Mussa say follows exactly ten people on twitter. I am one of them, and so I wanted to make sure he he saw how much emphasis I put on his commitment. How do I just know that two four six years from now if and when Lucy say is? Able to earn a consistent NBA paycheck, and perhaps it's even a player of of importance in the NBA. Gary Parrish will never ever ever forget or forget to remind people that there was one point in time and Mussa CCA followed ten people on twitter. And he was one of them. I honestly don't even understand it. Because like he used to follow a lot of people on twitter, I noticed and. One of them was not me, and then suddenly he cut almost everybody, but added me I don't really even know the connection there, but. I want I knew he'd see the tweet. And once I knew each the tweet I wanted to I wanted him to experience in all. Caps tweet obviously as as faithful podcast, listeners will know. Also one Moussa, see say. was tutored by your own son so I think. That might also be an influence. Parish working behind the scenes to get it done for Memphis. You've gotta admire actually ironically enough this happening in a week where parish is not on his local radio show. The conspiracy only strengthens. Okay, so here's what here's my question for you. you say the six eleven likely one and done talent averaged. Eighteen point four points, fifteen point, three rebounds and nine point two blocks last season pick memphis over Georgetown. Tom Kriens Georgia bulldogs Kentucky and Lsu. My question is. Who the hell is this guy planning? Nine point two blocks a game what? I have not I have. It's private school basketball in the state of Tennessee so? Took it over people who look like my oldest son in some cases like the blogging. What after another like I don't know I never been to a laws and basketball game and I've never even actually met. Say although it is true, my son and Mussa. Were classmates in my son to tutor him in in certain classes I. I don't even know if say knows that. My son is his classmate. He might, but I don't know that I've never I've never even had a real conversation about Mussa with my son. Other than so, what kind of young man is he and was like really nice? Really Really Nice guy like you know doesn't walk around like some big time. Basketball player I the only other times. I would talk to myself about Moses. Like Hey, did you see that dunk? That was on instagram last night or something like that? Because like fans are crazy, and at one point, the two schools involved in the Memphis in. RECRUITMENT MOST HEAVILY WE'RE MEMPHIS IN KENTUCKY and I'm like it doesn't matter what happens I. will somebody connected to one of those fan? Bases will blame me for it if HE GOES TO MEMPHIS, Kentucky fans it'd be because I pushed into Memphis somehow through my son, and if he goes to Kentucky Memphis fans, it'd be like see parish eight says all the modern salads like I'm not even getting involved. The only time my son had ever been asked about Mussa as recruitment. That I witnessed was one of my friends recently asked him when they were over at the house, and my son's answer was he always talked about? Georgetown but I don't think he's going to go to Georgetown and that was the extent of it. So he was right. Maybe my son's got a future and being a recruiting analyst, right?

Veteran quarterback Andy Dalton signs 1-year deal with Dallas Cowboys
"That a lot of people when we saw the signing of Andy Dalton to the Dallas Cowboys the first reaction was wait what yeah that that happened and so then you go through the process okay Andy Dalton's been a starter for a long time in Cincinnati obviously they drafted Joe burrow number one overall in the draft out of LSU so clearly he is going to be their future so Andy Dalton is signing with the Dallas Cowboys will war would be signed with the Dallas Cowboys what's the meaning there because any don't miss played very well at times he's been into the post season but there is the the offer out there to dak Prescott they're trying to work out a deal and there's a lot of things you can sort of surmised from that if you want but sometimes the map is the math and the numbers are the numbers and I thought that Edward you said this on on Sunday morning on ESPN radio basically summed it up best if you just look at what the two contract offers are it should tell you a lot

NFL Draft & Post-Spring Top 25 (without spring football)
"Why don't we turn our attention? Bruce to the players who will be back in college in. Twenty Twenty On Tuesday I released my spring top. Twenty five a little different this year because usually the reason you put it out the last week. April is that everybody's completed spring practice and we use some of the insights we've gleaned from that to update the rankings. I did the morning after title game. Obviously we did not. So why did you put it out this time? Because people love rankings? Remember the the one up morning after the national title game. We didn't yet know who was going to turn pro. We didn't get there have been head. Coaching changes that happened after that game like Matt Rule Even Baylor certainly lots and lots of coordinator changes. Transfer Portal guys I'm not saying that it drastically altered the lineup by any means. But you know there's you you have more info certainly than you did The morning after the national title game so the hardest team to rank is the one we just talked about a little while ago. Lsu because on the one hand they just had this dominant season and we know their program that recruits well so there's going to be able to reload but on the other hand fourteen guys a lot and To replace fourteen guys that were drafted. Some of those very very high draft picks most notably Joe Borough and generally speaking. I look back at some of the teams that had a huge number like that. Almost always there is a drop off. The next year might not be a severe drop off so the question is okay. I had them number five. I believe The day after the title game I dropped them to eight now. It's not like something bad happened between then and now have some you know. We didn't know who his new coordinator is going to be at that point that didn't really factor into it. I just find it hard to believe you can lose that many guys and come back the next year in win the SEC again. What surprised me a little bit? When I looked I was like wait. You drop them down. They actually like Djibril Cox's it was considered by lot of people as the top Grad transfer linebacker in the country and he ended up going there which is which is interesting to see how fit in going from North Dakota state which obviously wins national titles every year till she was just one one so I was a little surprised at okay. The probably the the one area on their defense. That was a question mark. They showed up from the time. You'd sign there but I don't disagree with you. Having them eight. I mean to me. The biggest loss is going to be jober. I mean he had the greatest quarterback anybody greatest quarterback season anybody's ever had in college football. And you know I know. Miles Brennan has a strong arm. That's about all we know right and so nine Oh yes good receivers Tamar Chase as the best receiver. He would have been the best fever in this draft. He's back but they got to replace basically three. And a half starters on the offensive line and they gotta replace Clyde. That's a lot and so to have them eighth. I don't think that's I don't think that's like eye-popping I was like. I said I was a little surprised that you you drop them Just in time from that but I think that could probably be as much relative. Yeah it wasn't because of anything that it wasn't anything that happens since January in. You're right that was a big pickup In terms of Djibril Cox Just recently that morning that it went up and I'll actually for being honest. I wrote it the day of the game. it's you just get a little distance from that and I mean it could be a very wide range of possibilities probably more than most teams in there. The ceiling in the floor is probably a pretty wide range. They wouldn't be. It wouldn't be shocking to me. If I think they're still gonNA be really good on defense. I think you would agree especially up front on the defensive line. You've got probably the best cornerback in the country extinguisher. You've got to Kobe. Steven's coming back. They should be really good still on defense. It's the Joe Borough factor. It's the offensive line. It's replacing Clyde like those are big questions but if they can answer those questions and maybe they're right back in the playoff and if they can't maybe there number eight maybe they go seven and five like there's such a wide range of possibilities with them. The thing that probably surprised me the most about your updated one was really jumped Texas. A&m High move them up seven spots. So what changed? Or what sunk into you that made you feel like I'm I'm going all in on the aggies pretty much well for one thing. I'm a big believer in bill. Connolly's rankings as you know and sometimes we default to Okay they were. They had this record last year and they returned this many stars. Therefore I'm GonNa slot them here but obviously there's more to the story in terms of how much talent do they have? And I think an last year might have had a much different record if they didn't have to play Alabama Clemson and Georgia which is just an insane insane schedule. Their record reflected Bills PRESEASON SP plus rankings. Texas is tenth I don't have them quite that high. Obviously

"lsu" Discussed on The Dan Le Batard Show with Stugotz
"With us on ESPN radio who wins that game the XFL team inside game. I mean Joe. Borough would be the best quarterback on the field but the other players and particularly the lions would be. Why else would loose? Wow Okay I I don't agree with you. Aerial Halawani though might have a differing opinion. What are your thoughts here Aerial Hawaii on whether or not Joe Boroughs? LSU team record breaking unprecedented precedent at Lsu team would beat the best the best XFL team. Before I answer this important question I just want to say I don't appreciate the catch up shaming that I've received from your audience over the past five or so days it's irresponsible it's not fair to Stanford I'm proud of WHO I am Andy in any event the team but I just WanNa say there's a caveat to the answer it's the two thousand one version of the XFL team the two thousand twenty version are very subpar talking about the Orlando rage. I'm talking about Las Vegas outlaws. The New York New Jersey Heaven Two thousand one johnny-come-latelies stuff but we're talking twenty twenty. It's but let's take a look at the two thousand one one version the XFL much better play highly technical stuff all. Thank you for more than I was expecting that. We're looking for short answer. I was kind of hoping hoping to keep the moving. I keep the Sagar get Outta here. So that's aerial. How long are Ma expert which she come from? Why shaam bag and on back? I'm back to convince you that the NFL's important and the XFL Matt. It matters stabbed. Because I've been standing by seething as you have pooh-poohed this league accusing us all of corporate toadies for enjoying football. God forbid but it also matters and for reasons that I think are pertinent to your bleeding heart. Okay which is you. Talk About Joe Borough and how he'd perform against XFL teams the XFL could be a viable landing spot for college quarterbacks. There's already a Saint Saint Louis Battle Hawk a former all big twelve safety Kenny Robinson who was dismissed from college and is playing in the XFL making money. This is a real option. quarterbacks in this league make hundreds of thousands of dollars so we could see the next Trevor Lawrence. There will never see the next Trevor Lawrence their jet you're on ESPN radio. Give me better analysis than that. Jed Okay there is no way that the XFL team could be Lsu. I mean the the the defense is they're just not good enough now the offense with tear them up. It's as simple as that. It is as simple as that new gods that it wasn't called Jed Jed. What do you can't even watch the exit of I feel like half the people were coming in here and just creaming? This leak. Haven't even wash including Dan on. It's actually pretty good people but Joe Borough would shred that defense. Sure you're on. ESPN radio instead of me. What do you have Joshua what's going don't dvr every XFL game? And I have watched them repeatedly and I'm telling you the XFL teams would just utterly the Lsu team not even close. It wouldn't be fair. That was good man Tom. He knows what he's talking about. Jason you're on. ESPN CBS radio. Jason go ahead. What's up guys so the battle hawks can fly over? Lsu Tigers so obviously they would beat the tiger agars because the Tigers can't jump up and get. I'm sorry Jason I gotTa Get rid of you. We've got field. Yates breaking in from his. Get her out of here field. Yates now coming from his honeymoon. What do you have for us feel bad but spending most of my honeymoon thinking about who would win this matchup between Lsu and the top XFL team very very much the entirety my trip so far LSU landslide? You kidding me. Tigers ridiculous to to tell her no field have you been watching. XFL On your honeymoon. Honest I'll probably wrong. Thank you guys back down. I just scared at the MENAS. XFL yipping just barking at people making them not and not give us the truth. Pablo Tori of high noon ex every Pablo fell against Lsu who wins best XFL team so the XFL is in. Christ I mean one of the things that you need to realize that the excess values at the act like does that still Stanford Stream. What does extreme about this as as football? What are they even doing to me? When you really think about what a minor league supposed to be? Yeah the X.. What does that even supposed to? They're taking the label from an old thing putting it on a new thing so to act. LSU can be the next F. L. Team I guess so because none of the XFL teams are actually XFL all teams. What's extreme about any of these teams? None of them even qualify for the League that they plan this is. This is bothersome conversation because nobody often tell me what it stands for. Here's the thing Pablo can you name an XFL player. WHO's not a quarterback? Oh yeah there's there's Adam Outta here. Pablo took.
"lsu" Discussed on Comeback Szn
"Who carries a bunch of fucking fake cash around with them? Odell Beckham if you tell me. He's carrying twenty thousand dollars cash or fake cash on him right now. which which one are you going to believe? Odell Beckham is New Orleans. He's carrying a ton of cash worth. It doesn't know where to get fake cash either like you think. That Ode L. Beckham is walking around rounding. Like where can I find cash. By the way he handed it to Justin Jefferson who's probably going to declare for the draft and we'll do a lot of guys well. Yeah just Jefferson's the one that went super viral like I. I took that as like he was like fuck you. NC Double A.. I'm just going to give these guys money. The fact that they're trying to say it's fake. Money is a slam. She was taking the wrong. The wrong approach here. They're out there trying. I don't say it was fake money. That's bullshit you know it's bullshit I know it's bullshit. What they should be saying is? Yeah in the locker room the players gave it back. It was a fun thing to do on the field. Yada Yada what's the NCAA Housing and Sierra going to approve. They didn't so that's what they should be saying. It shouldn't be saying fake money. You know it wasn't fake money. I know it wasn't fake money. I also know that the players didn't give it back. That's more believable to me if you can locker room and Lsu says you'll lose your ability you need to give it back. I can believe that. Yeah I can't believe they were given fake cash. Okay Yeah I guess this is degrees of what I could believe. Odell Beckham Junior finding anywhere that has faked cash and then getting that much of it and carrying it around during the National Championship. Benjamin is by far the least believable angle. I do love that. Odell Beckham Junior was finally able to get the attention. He so desperately deserves 'cause he walked onto that field any where the cameras were. He never made a big enough differences. Lsu To win a championship himself so he was able to find the players that were able to deliver that and potentially just take a big shit over that all over that just to get himself some attention but you know what though I bet the players loved it. That's the thing when you look at. Does that mean I understand would probably a lot of things. That aren't good in the long run. Well no but I'm saying like you know it's easy for us to sit up here and be like Oh that guy needed attention but like if you go to Lsu and you see one of the not telling me that the players love somebody walking up and giving them five hundred dollars. I'm talking cruiser. No no no. I'm not talking about that. I'm talking about just the attention. That Odell Beckham gets gets in the way he is. He's so flashy he obviously is a big name in the NFL. Like I would assume most players at any team would like a superstar. NFL player coming back and partying with them them. And then also the extra not fake cash raised. They'll just handing out money like an recruiting weekend. You sneak that in you know. I've got several more by by the way I've gotten to talk a lot about cheating in college football connected to this whole baseball scandal and I know it's apples to oranges with college and Professional Sports. But I've gotten a really working on on the radio. Some semi takes on college cheating. I've decided that people in on twitter and on social media that don't think colleges cheat might be my least favorite sector of twitter. There is there exist a A large percentage of college football fans on twitter that are just that are just mother fucking idiots and usually I'm just going to type cast here. They're going to be a mom between the age of forty and fifty five. Or maybe a DAB between the age of forty and fifty five that believe in the sanctity of good old university. And we're classy and nobody else's clancy and Blah Blah Blah. Even if they didn't win out still all support him because he's such a good young man you you wouldn't piss on the young man. If he was on fire he if he stopped in front of your house. You'd lock the fucking door and you are the worst. The person on twitter a college football fan. That just doesn't get shit. Sorry my bad no. It's okay I actually kind of agree with you. You actually kind of agree with you because I I do agree a lot. I agree with everything you said. It is really tough for me so I mean obviously we all liked like dunk on people on social media. Sometimes I do it too much whatever. It's very hard for me. Eight to dunk on. I do it anyways because it depending on how bad the tweet is but on a twitter avatar where it's like it could be my grandmother like GRANDPA. Fine don't give a shit like whatever but if it's a woman who looks like she's between my mom's age and my grandmother's age it's her comment has to be really bad towards me. GAUL's football we also deal with We deal with a fan. That's hard to dunk onto when a fan says something that is totally vowel about a player our about us and you WanNa dot com on you. Want to kill him and it's a picture of their fucking kid. Well that's usually the people that are hiding behind that that it exists a lot in college football world. Oh yeah or it's like their family. They have a Bible verse in their profile like just being completed and go to hell. Es Suck on a Dick or something. I don't know I got in that fight with that one Baylor other fan so casey we're also going to discuss. LSU being the best team ever investing over. I don't know I do know one thing that does qualify as the best ever the best. It's Mac and cheese of all time but he is food to make of all time the richest food of all time creepiest cheesiest. I think we're talking about same thing. VELVEETA shells and cheese. Yes yes yes. We're GONNA talk about if Lsu's the best team ever you can kinda decipher between is it. Talent wise is it the season wise there is no complaint. I don't know what word I was like. No denying there is no denying belva shells and cheese is the unanimous champion when it comes to the best Mac and cheese fulltime. It works for my kids. It works for my wife works for me. It is easy it is delicious it is quick it is perfect and you only need that one box and then you just kind of add a little hottest. Have you added the hot sauce. I am not how that's all sky. I I love cheese by itself. But you're GONNA have whatever you want. It's still just by itself. Don't get me wrong but if you want a little spice to it like you want that Ritchie and spice aloe hot sauce and while you're doing the body dances you know. I don't know maybe like a salsa dance shells and cheese makes this woman dance best team ever no no. I've I've seen this going around on. Twitter lies not. LSU's not the best talent wise or it's just not the best team. This is not the best team. People are confusing two different things. That's what I'm asking you what we're not confusing here on necessary. Roughness for people. I started saying this a month ago. LSU finishes this run what they got in front of them. This will be the best season ever beat five eleven when teams beat five. AP Top ten teams in the final AP top ten B seven top ten teams overall. It's the greatest season of accomplishment. We've ever seen it's not the best team ever because there have been teams in college football history that are better pound for pound than this team. This team had a couple of games that were they were tested. Had A couple of games for their defense just gave up way too many points and showed way too many weaknesses. They fixed that towards the end of the year and got better but there are teams on this in these grades of All Times Times listed. Didn't have those hiccups There are teams on this list. That didn't give up thirty eight Vanderbilt Thirty Eight to Sam Alan Jara in Texas sailing. Excuse me and Texas so great team. I think the best season ever put together. I there are there. Are you just got to recognize the difference. In the season they put together and the quality of team. They are like two thousand one. Miami does Miami team. That's the gold standard. They had seventeen first round draft picks. Seventeen that that's the greatest team in my opinion in college football history just off the top of my head just in my lifetime. I can't go back to the sixties. I could go back and look at numbers. But I'm not going back to the sixties or fifties of the forties and taking some of those teams but in my lifetime. I would say two thousand one. Miami is the gold standard Couple of Alabama teams at two thousand Eleven Alabama team that even lost in the regular season but ended up winning In the superdome beating Lsu. I thought those two teams were incredible. Lsu Lsu Alabama that year. But I would say that Obama team's all time team nineteen ninety-two Alabama is the greatest college defense ever. They were great and two thousand four. USC See who didn't really get tested because they were giving a gift by playing Oklahoma and the BCS championship game when they should have played auburn known. How good they really were instead? like Lsu this year they. We're giving the gift of a Shitty. Oklahoma team somehow always gets bio name value. Even though they suck. I would've said I think the Miami team. That's definitely the gold standard. I do think that and I I use is this phrase a lot but it is the truth. That's recently bias when you look at these teams but it also does have a lot to do with the amount of exposure these teams get and social media has so so much to play with that because like you're an encyclopedia brain. You can remember every single detail of every single college football season and the nineteen ninety-two team like I was four jacker even born yet. So it's like those types of things but I don't think that this Lsu team is the most talented team like you said. I would have probably taken a those early Miami teams but as far as the best team ever. It's an easier argument to make for a lot of people because they could see every single second of it. Yes I'm surprised he didn't say twenty. Thirteen Florida stay. I don't know why you'd be surprised that they they twin every player that started on that team ended up in the very talented. They just didn't leave. First of all James Coming back in two thousand fourteen and and then them getting beaten the playoff for some reason just colors at two thousand thirteen team. It makes remember. I watched that team walked off. The field is a loser the next year ear. And that's somehow sullies their name but I will say that. The the game with Auburn Auburn team wasn't good as far as a national championship goes I mean. They were a bad add team to reach the championship and floors date needed every second of that game to beat them. I I wouldn't consider Florida state two thousand thirteen in all time team very good team. National Champion Brim. That puts them way up there but I I don't consider him a national. You know an all time team. I all that team and I know we talked about this whatever episode. It was a while back when I was like. Oh what team has been the most disappointing in this decade. That whole run that for two statehouse Jameis Winston feels like it was twenty years ago..

"Know I. I don't particularly have a great memory for that stuff. It's hard to remember but also about the life span of running backs in the NFL. This is the showcase position or our weather showcase position in the sport. And you know the careers are so so ephemeral. The guys were superstars. Seem unstoppable. It just takes so little time for them to fade from the scene and you you know one of the guys I do remember is Frank Gore. Who actually is still in the league piling up yards at an advanced age for running back but there are other guys who seem like they've just been gone forever? Like Eddie Lacy Justin for set Lamar Miller. I haven't thought about that guy in a in a long time and so it's it was a it was a quiz. They made me sad stephan some quiz do that.

"From Lsu with a degree in petroleum engineering though is Very common so there are six completed passes says I believe in that game which is kind of a bad drive for Joe Borough also a thing to note about college football back then is it. Lsu won the national championship and the Clemson Seven. Nothing in the sugarbowl. Those things weren't related. They determined the national champion forest and Bowl Games. I was before the bullet totally sensible. The Ball System Link Games. Yeah it was just like a little bonus at the end to. They did it for fun just to so you think you'd get any extra injuries at the end of the year. Just a little little bonus round all right Stephane. What is your Mickey Mangum on twitter? The other day Listener Ryan Caulton back noted noted that bugged on Bogdonovich Utah Jazz scored thirty five points with zero rebounds assists blocks or steals in a game against New Orleans Josh you then reported that the NBA player to rack up more points with nothing in those other positive counting stat. Categories was Alan Houston of the Knicks in two two thousand who had thirty seven points impressive achievement. But let's talk about the totally inept performances player sue enter a game and do nothing. No points snow shots no free throws no fouls turnovers. You might be aware that this achievement is known as a trillion when the box score line shows one minute followed by a string of zeroes the first reference to the trillion. I was able to find a story by Mitch. albom in the Detroit. Free Press of April Eighteenth Nineteen Ninety Wendy album profiled to Pistons. Bench warmers Scott. Hastings and David Greenwood grabbed a sleeping bag. Fill the canteen album wrote we. We are headed for the end of the bench. Each of those last five words was capitalized. It isn't exactly the end of the world. Also capitalized. It's worse. Even even Columbus never looked for the end of the bench. I could do a whole after ball. About how bad the story is. But it's a little bit off point anyway. At one point in the story hastings in Greenwood talked about garbage time hastings recalled that he wants entered a game with twelve point eight seconds left and came out with eleven point. Six seconds left. Yeah I got what we called a trillion. He said a trillion album road yet. Hastings said that's when the box score reads one minute played followed by a row of Zeros. I got lots of those a trillion album road again and didn't follow up at all. Hastings said and or album type nine Zeros which would be a billion billion not a trillion. which as far as I can tell was the case in box scores of the day? Poetic License. Whatever but the rise of big box score led to an actual actual trillion twelve potential zeros field goals made field goals attempted three pointers made? Free throws made offensive rebounds total rebounds assists steals blocks turnovers personal fouls points. There's been even more box score. Creep over the years field goals three pointers and free throws attempted to pointers. Made and attempted. Did plus minus some boxes include minutes and seconds played which really messes up the Zeros aesthetic in any case the basic box score on ESPN NBA dot. com includes fifteen categories in a players control. So the QUADRILLE is the new trillion now a lot of players have recorded multiple trillions trillions in their career Jeb Bush ler of the one thousand nine hundred ninety s bowls had fifty five the former player Mark Titus now a writer and commentator has made sort of a career out of it. I think his twitter handle is club trillion but I wanted to find the most futile individual game performances the biggest trillions in NBA history. Fortunately originally historical searches on basketball reference. Show full minutes. And ignore plus minus they also include separate columns for two point field goals made and attempted that bumps us up to seventeen potential Zeros. which would be a hundred quadrille Ian for one? Minute played play ten minutes though and do nothing and it's a one followed by eighteen. Zeros the Nice Round Quintillo. Ian The QU- intil. Ian Is the new Quadrille Ian all right so now it's time to remember some guys who piled wild up. Zero's the record for minutes played while recording. Just one counting stat. Is Stan McKenzie of the Baltimore Bullets. Who On march eighth? Nineteen sixty eight played played nine hundred nine minutes and accumulated one and only one foul but there were only ten counting stats at the time which works out to a measly one hundred ninety billion and ten in the era our one stat champ is Kevin Gamble of the Celtics who on May Seventeenth nineteen. ninety-one played eighteen minutes and had one foul foul but that is not perfection for all eras. The dubious distinction of most minutes played with nothing at all to show for it in the box. Score that I was able to find belongs to Kenny of the Knicks. Sears was the fourth pick of the nineteen fifty five draft. He twice led the Nixon scoring but not on February fourth nineteen fifty-six fifty six against Syracuse sears. Played fifteen minutes and tallied no stats so fifteen minutes all-time mark but the NBA of nineteen fifty. Six of course didn't have three point shot. It didn't breakout offensive and defensive rebounds. It didn't tally steals blocks or turnovers so sears US fifteen is followed by just ten. Zeros rose a mere one hundred and fifty billion in nineteen seventy six Steve. Kubersky of the Celtics had thirteen minutes of bupkus in eleven categories. A one point three trillion in one thousand. Nine hundred eighty seven Keith. Star of the Bulls went fourteen minutes. Fourteen categories one point. Four Quadrille Ian Allan Level of the rockets. It's did twelve minutes in fifteen categories in one thousand nine hundred one a twelve Quadrille Ryan but still no Quinta Ilian and then I finally found it the high water mark the leader in the clubhouse the gold standard of null sucking void in modern. NBA Box score. History is twelve minutes with seventeen goose sags. A one point two Quin Chilean. It is a three way tie among Kenny. Walker of the Washington Bullets skywalker baby on December Eleventh Nineteen ninety-three Damon Jones of the Cavaliers on June seventh two thousand seven in Game One of the NBA finals. No less. Wow and Rishaad Vaughan of the bucks on January Fifteenth Two Thousand Sixteen. I should note here that the basketball reference box includes a final column called Game Game Score which is a stat created by John Hollinger Walker Jones and von each of course registered a game score of zero point zero which if view include that makes nine thousand nine hundred Zeros so the number to beat is not one point two Quin Chilean..

"But cone again was not arrested or charged and then writers. Dan saw cone as the hero in this case and someone who would overcome something as somebody who had the greatest game of his life when he thought thought he might get arrested and it's played as this kind of Hero's journey for him. It's incredibly disturbing. Yeah so the cone rape allegation happened happened on the last day of the season in Nineteen ninety-one so in October and it was a story that lasted as a news event. It was like a three day story. Maybe it was unfolding exactly at the moment of the Clarence Thomas hearings so you know if you look at the newspaper covers back. Then there'd be like a big thank picture of Anita Hill and then a little box at the bottom. You Know David Cone Accused of rape. That went away almost immediately Philadelphia. Police decided that it was not a credible allegation and they dropped the case. And then as you say yeah cone that became part of the legend because while he was still under investigation you know. There's this this whole story behind the scenes that came out of how you know met's GM frank cash told him it's the last day of the season. Were not in contention. Wanted to just sit this one out and cone said you know no you gotTa let me pitch. And he went out there and he just pitched this like bonkers game. I mean I think it's a one hitter and struck out. Nineteen something like that and then stories were written about. How did you do it? What did you draw? It was like that kind of sports reporting about this thing. It was just totally assumed that this case was indeed totally without merit again. The police did drop brought. That gives an another thing. That's going on here that we should talk about is the way race played into all these stories so You know one might reasonably we ask why David Cohen was accused of rape in October. Nineteen ninety-one and you know. The case was dropped almost immediately by the police. And and then three black players on the mets Dwight. Gooden Vince Coleman and Daryl Boston were accused of rape just a few months later and it was just a massive story and you know taken very very seriously by the police in an investigation that unfolded over a number of weeks. I think that's worth considering to and and yet. The police in both cities ultimately chose not to attempt to prosecute years. Later you report that the Philadelphia Inquirer discovered that multiple accounts of accusations of sexual assault by women were rejected by the Philadelphia. Police Department. Out of hand there was even a nickname for the office. The lying bitches pitches unit. I was stunned when you interview. You did with one of the investigators in Port St Lucie Florida who who all these years later sort of rehashed. These suspicions that he had that ruled out attempting to prosecute the case that amounted wanted to nothing more than the sort of poor conjecture about what he thought may have happened and whether he could trust what she was saying and that seemed very little to do with physical evidence. Yeah he told me that in his opinion what was going on there was Powell had been jilted by David Cone Own. She wanted to make him jealous. She'd picked up. You know gooden and the other guy is at the nightclub and concocted this whole thing kind of to get cones attention. She made Google is at him he told you she made. Google is on him and you know one of the things. I found very striking from that interview. Was You know I mentioned that. This all unfolded on the same night and very close to to wear the William Kennedy Smith incident unfolded and I don't know to me learning learning about that in two thousand nineteen talking about in twenty twenty. I mean that's just speaks to first of all how prevalent these sorts of stories were at that moment that they we're finally coming out but more importantly the underlying issue of how prevalent these incidents might have been. So that's kind of my perspective on it but then talking to this detective detective. who had worked the mets case? He thought that the fact that these two things had happened on the same night was rather damning. was just evidence that you know they were one was a copycat happy cat claim of the other. And what are the chances so it just kind of I think shows how the same piece of information can be interpreted in radically different for ways depending on your priors about women's inclination to lie about such things perhaps Stefan Dan working as journalists back then and we are both fans of of the team and would read coverage and follow them just as kids. Who are interested in baseball? But you were working as a journalist year at the AP not at the time. What did this story kind of call to mind for you about this era about reporters and about sort of societal views about sexual assault in my memory of the case is yeah? I remember the accusations. I don't remember much of it in detail I wasn't I wasn't covering sports at the time but I did read the tabloids when I was living in New York so I don't have a stark recollection other than to put it in the context. Oh yeah all those mets were assholes and this was one more story that likely the in your mind has a high probability of truth and yet it was not being prosecuted. Because that's what often happened with athletes. What's that we overlook their their sins on the field and that our institutions are very bad at following up? And Look Clarence. Thomas was confirmed to the Supreme Court. Right William Kennedy Smith was acquitted. This was part of a pattern of the way our systems our institutions are systems jurisprudence. Didn't also seem to function and I'd be lying if I say I recall thinking like there's an injustice been done here but I probably just didn't pay that close attention to the details of this case and its conclusion and the thing down that really strikes me is that yeah. It reminded me that I was essentially ancient working adult at this time and I don't have a strong sense or song memory of of outrage about what had happened that we were inured to the way that sports and bigger institutions function in cases like these I think one thing that sort of complicates for me certainly looking back and situation complicates. What's the situation and what I think might have been complicated at the time? Was that when the prosecutor declined to press charges. It's not like he came out and said you know this was a false allegation. He came out and said this is an unwinnable case and I think that was a reasonable assessment of the evidence. I mean there were things as they were about this case that would have made it really tricky like the fact that it had taken her a year to come forward the fact that you know there were no other witnesses like. They're these were there. You know there were as a as a rape case it was kind of a stinker you know so I think and you see that in the coverage Ridge at a of the wrap up of this investigation. It's not like the you know. Even the tabloid columnists are saying. You know these mets are innocent. Let's move on. They're saying things things like this is really awful. Who knows? Let's move on. So what what I found. Maybe more outrageous was not the way the legal system handled handled it. Although some of the stuff we talked about with how the detectives investigating the case might felt about our alarming but the way that you know confronted with this tricky situation should wear this was perhaps an unwinnable case certainly in one thousand nine hundred eighty two it might have been an unwinnable case so it was dropped and then everyone just kind of said okay. Let's never think about it again and I don't think it was never think about it again because were all certain individually certain that this thing never happened but rather it's unpleasant you know. Let's play ball. You have to think about the fact. This was also the beginning of the baseball season. So there's for the sports writers at any rate there's like a propulsion to like. Let's put this. You know weird spring training stuff aside and now the games means something so yeah I mean there were those kind of post mortem columns on April Tenth Anthony April eleventh of Nineteen Ninety two and then by opening day. It's not even mentioned. Gooden pitched the home opener at Shea. And it's just like how did he look well He. He was pretty good but he took the no decision. Or whatever so like it just it evaporates. Meanwhile other stuff that had come out in that spring training you know some of these other tabloid stories about the mets acting like jerks or buffoons lived on so for example that same month of March nineteen. ninety-two allegations came out that David Cone had masturbated in front of female fans on two occasions. That story got the full tabloid treatment. There is a famous New York Post Headline Weird Sex Act Bullpen. That's one that I've now just talking about myself as a mets fan. I remember that vividly and when I think back on those teams weird sex act and bullpen is the first thing that comes to mind what I find again this I can only speak for myself but I thought it at the beginning of this project. I was like it's so crazy that I remember the cone masturbation stuff and that happened like two weeks into this massive massive story about the alleged rape and I just I like I one has been wiped from my mind completely. It's not like Cohn ever admitted that he did this quote unquote weird sex act in the bullpen has always said he he didn't do any quote quote unquote weird sex act in the bullpen. So but but for some re- like that was just an easier thing to talk about and you can see it in the in the columnists at the time to they. They were just uncomfortable after bill with this rape story because it was so awful and I think from their perspective who knows but the cone thing like. That's it didn't seem like anyone was really hurt that much. I guess there were no other repercussions on these players. Taken by the mets whereby Major League Baseball. But for Cindy Powell. The woman at the center of the case. This was her life life. How in your reporting Dan? What did you find out about how this affected her and what happened? Her will the experience of coming forward was devastating for her reporters knew who she was ause but her name was never was never published And that is not the case for some of the other people who came forward around this time as I said but she was hounded at at her place of work. She was followed to her appointments with her therapist. It was very very unpleasant And again it. It ended with no charges in the years that followed her friends. Tell me that you know and this is again. There's there's no way to know for sure but this is just what her friend said that she the change that Her life did not go well from then in terms of her mental health and she struggled for quite some time. She had a lot of tragedies unrelated to this in her family the death of her brother of the death of her biological father and then she died by suicide in two thousand twelve. It's impossible Dan. Santa.

"Between crane and now who is really responsible and these incidents and it was if we are going to criticize Manfred it is extremely inconsistent to say that Liu now bears responsibility for everything that everyone under him was doing but the crane bears no responsibility for everything that anyone was doing underneath him. Couldn't have Put it any better and and the farcical the I think the most farcical part of this his that rob Manfred very clearly and explicitly stated. This was a player driven scheme. With the exception of Alex. Cora of course a player driven scheme in which players ended up getting suspended. I mean Ed this this just enlist I understand why no players got not suspended because the easiest route for baseball to punishment into trying to wrap up this very ugly and Sordid added chapter of its history was too disciplined. People quickly and quick disciplined came via this memo that Manfred sent out September fifteenth. Two thousand seventeen and this memo said that if there is illicit use of technology by a team and the general manager and manager will be held responsible responsible and that is exactly happened in this situation. You didn't see anybody else get disciplined. You're probably going to see Alex Cora Because as of his time as manager of the Boston Red Sox and what he did as bench coach of the Houston Astros end up wearing it awfully hard and probably lose his job because that was a bit right and Manfred said in the statement that he gave players immunity in order to testify and Manfred also knew that any punishment of players was gonNA. It'd be litigated by the Union. And he also said he couldn't determine which of them did what and I've been trying to sort of sort through what would be ed more draconian or or more appropriate level of punishment. I mean what what can baseball do what could not rob Manfred. Had done. Sure he could have suspended the owner the way George Steinbrenner was suspended for life and returned a few years later. But what can you do hear stripped the championship. I mean I don't think it's give them extra losses I mean you know you can't do. What soccer dozen Europe like demote the team to the minute you could ban them from signing free agents? You could do that. Maybe you could count fifty million bucks against the luxury tax. I'm not saying they should do that. I'm just saying that's a mechanism that is very common in international soccer right. They think we're Manfred. Had A real problem Jeff. Is that if you go too far. You are indicting your own sport in a way that you're not right now by giving out these suspensions that lead to firings of one general manager and one field manager. Yeah I think that's a that's a very fair and reasonable. Appoint on the balance that Manfred strike the needle that he had the threat. However you WANNA put it? I do think though that the clearest path for him to take to hold everybody including Jim Crane accountable would have been a fine. That was larger than five million dollars that's the most laughable part of this whole thing and I understand that he would be expanding his powers by doing that. But what this does is it. Reinforces the notion. That Rob Manfred is a commissioner who is beholden to the owners that every commissioner in every sport. It's not raw manfred Manfred. Yeah I listen. I know that was what the response was going to be. And that's fair but can you give me another situation or another sport. That has had something like this. This where the commissioner hasn't stepped up and been draconian I mean don't you think Roger Goodell. The case of spy gate in the suspension of Tom Brady was taking draconian measures. And eventually you know it got walked back but at least he endeavoured to do something like that. I think the best analogy here is how David Stern handled Tim. Donaghy situation where he pretended like it wasn't actually a problem where he got up and explain that it was just one guy in elite. Didn't actually have this this problem and he just kind of convinced everybody that the League was was clean at had done everything right and and it was like total bs but everybody bought it because stern was such a wizard at a public relations. And that I think is getting to Stephen's point is is that Manfred wanted to paint. And I think everybody's willing to to buy because staffers are so heated. This was a rogue organization. And I think where I want this conversation ago and I'm interested in both of your takes. It's like this is obviously bad for baseball. Have the story out there but the the actual crime the quote unquote crime even if Manfred cinema or whatever. Everybody is stealing signs. Everybody has stolen signs and baseball baseball since baseball was invented. So even if you think that what. The Astros did was worse than typical science dealing. It's a matter of degree. It's not like they were doing anything being so extraordinarily awful and so I think the reason these yeah. Are you really trying to say. Hey that stealing signs from second base and touching your kneecap to let a hitter no that fast balls coming as equivalent to banging on a trash can to let them know literally every pitch that's coming and not only in a trash can but using the best available technology not the trash Ashdown and and doing it basically your they were exploiting the extension of video video into the game itself that Major League Baseball adopted in two thousand fourteen. I mean they major league. Baseball gave teams approval Russell to put replay rooms ten feet from the dugouts. This was a slippery slope. Manfred deserves to be criticized for not recognizing the potential for exploitation of technology. Here so I do think worse than you weren't the giants tipping every pitch in the nineteen fifty one world series. Yeah they were trying to is this. How is this new? Like it doesn't change my belief about the nature picture of you know whether you call it cheating or I would call a cheetah it doesn't change my view of how teams are cutthroat and are are. We're trying to win. This is not make me disillusioned about the sport or at. You know it's GonNa be punished and it should be punished but this idea that the integrity of the game has been breached and some unprecedented way doesn't carry them water with me. I don't know man. A team like won the world series in a year in which chick was cheating. But I I don't I don't know how much more plain and simple it gets. Then that and I want them to lose the world series though hypocritical..

"Accurate and mobile and is also extremely good at diagnosing. What defenses are doing? It was only a matter of time keeping with the narrative where LSU is not dominant athletic force and if they did have to fight and work to win this it is worth remembering that these are all disparate parts that Lsu. Let's you put together the right if we went back three years ago and said Hey Joe Borough Clyde Edwards healer Dhamar Chase like. Are you going to be able to dominate college. Football with Jessica Jason Jefferson was a two star. LSU beat out Kansas to get your mar chase. Joe Boroughs. Other option was Cincinnati when he was looking at transfer from Ohio state and lost Out to Dennis Haskins Clyde t layer. I mean he did get a scholarship to Lsu but like nobody would have thought that he was on the level of various guys the guy who preceded him at Baton Rouge Catholic in Lsu. So yeah I mean this is all a testament to like the work that Lsu put in and their ability to put people in the right place and we haven't even brought up Joe Brady. They vary youngest systems. They brought in from the New Orleans. Saints who you know kind of revamped their offense and made them into the unit that they are. Today it's really a testament to like I mean I know there's a sound corny but but it's really a testament to the idea of reinvention teamwork in work ethic Because none of this was given and if you go back to you know early September when Lsu was barely edging out Texas at home a Texas team. We later found out. Wasn't all that good and then you go to what we saw last night. Obviously you know a lot of things to come together and LSU's responsible notable for a lot of that and even you know if you do have really amazing players. They have to play well. I mean it's been all thing to say but Trevor Lawrence it's not like that came discredited him in any way. I thought that he made really good plays at various points during the game and he looked really scary. If you were rooting against inst- clemson. But he didn't have a good game. I mean by his admission by Dennis weenies in Michigan. He had all of those overthrows whether it was just because he was a little bit off off whether it was because Lsu was doing something but he just didn't play well and in every game this year and then in the SEC championship game and how Obama game and the semi against Oklahoma and against Clemson job road didn't have a bad game barely had a bad series all year. A and you know he's twenty three years old his fifth year in College. One of those was a redshirt year. He's a grad transfer already graduated from Undergrad. He only takes classes online. He goes to the Facilities Professional Football College.

"Was in the superdome for it in the press box and I was happy confessed. I was raising my fingers. Enjoy so says not to violate the prohibition on cheering in the press box you weren't worthy to people that was cheering for shrunk. When he came into the I heard about that story in the press box but I was very loudly seething but but now but this was the culmination of objectively one of the greatest the seasons in college football history? LSU Had the most points of any team ever in the AP poll era. I believe and this was Clemson. Paul is the best defense in college football this year and Lsu and Joe Bro put up as they've put up all year record passing numbers and that Forty two twenty twenty five win so you are definitely dispassionate. And not fake dispassionate. So what can you tell me and us about Lsu and their victory. I think you know what's a testament to how good Lsu was this season in particularly last night is that there was a point in the third quarter while felt sorry for Clemson which is which is unbelievable. They're on a twenty nine game winning streak. You know they beat Ohio state team. That was as good is any I saw in the country all year right in in late in the third quarter of like. Oh clemson doesn't have it and I mean think about this. Lsu Put up six hundred twenty yards scored forty two points on Clemson. That's still thought they did pretty good. All Things considered which just shows you that. LSU's offense is just totally changed. Like I guess the scale for what we think is possible with offense like it used to be that you could win a game in college football. You know rolling four hundred yards. That was a lot of yards in a game and like they almost had that by like I think like halftime or something like that it just would would just say about this as objectively one of the best teams in college football history. It's hard to think that that's not true looking at the statistics in the way that they play. Because this is almost. Don't even tell the story it's the W- it's like looking at them seeing them. See Joe Berle escaping from pressure throwing it up to Jim Arches in Jefferson borough handing off to cloud Edward C. They're like it's just really difficult to imagine what couldn't offense due to be better than what. Lsu was this year even talked about the defense but they just weren't the most unstoppable applicable force. I've seen in college football history and Clemson just unfortunate league for them ran into a buzzsaw. I don't think there's anything they could have done differently. That would change the outcome. What struck me is that it felt like Lsu had the best offensive players on the field at every position? My Far Clyde Edwards Hilar- was was fun and like Barry Sanders last night. He was ploughing people over Randy. MOSSES chugh didn't even mention scored two or was it three touchdowns I lost count. The wide receiver core seemed to be three inches taller and two steps faster than anyone that Clemson was able to put on them. It it really felt like a a mismatch which is crazy in a championship game against the team that had lost in what two years I mean it feels I like that. In retrospect but the feeling very stressed out partisan you know you have to remember clemson was ahead seventeen to seven. LSU had not had a ten point deficit set all year. There is so much talk going into the game about Brent Venables the clemson defensive coordinator and his wizardry with scheme and how he's able to confuse views opposing offenses quarterbacks and offensive coordinators. And that certainly was true for the first three series of that of the game. LSU punted three consecutive times which. This is the first time they had done that all year. They're also playing really well with field position. Lsu was pinned deep every time. And so you know it did not look like Lsu she was indomitable and unstoppable and that it was a pure talent mismatch. And so. I think you have to give credit to burrow.

Your hotels You you know where you're staying the whole the whole thing so I don't read too much into doubt you're already in the The walks phase. When you get here? You're not really really getting after it in practice so I think that was too much of a big deal will Lsu have a significant homefield advantage. Tonight it really fun. I keep bringing this up with people that That I've worked with that. Were here in twenty eleven twenty eleven obviously was the rematch. Lsu and Bama You know and I I was actually talking to Lsu people yesterday. I still think that is the most impressive resume I've ever seen in in a regular season college football and the the idea that they had the play Bama again just wasn't I not fair but it just it you you you look back in it and that season doesn't get do So you know in that game. I was talking to people on like I thought Obama had more people Blair than Lsu and all the people were really quick to point out like we didn't have one thing that cheer for that game was twenty one. Not right they. You didn't get the ball over the fifty yard line until the fourth quarter So that that kind of made sense to me But that's the most people I've ever seen here in the city when that game LSU Does have A more more presence here obviously and I think it's only going to increase today as you know. The majority of their fans could just drive into the city today. for the twenty the twenty eleven title game was the year the ninety six regular season. Game right yeah the yeah you know.

Dan, he knows or someone else on his staff could get it. Yeah. I mean that has been Nick Sabin practice in recent years. Hi, paul. That's all I got say today's thanks to take him a call. Neal is up next Neil go right ahead. Hi, pal. Thanks, take my call. Thank you. I coke little bit bad mix. Lakes. I think he won't though fifty and over this year, but the first coach team to do that. And this time period. And also I'm thinking he's wanting to win next year in being first team to go three back to back national championships. Now, neil. Let me ask you this. By talking. We're talking about Nick Sabin here. Don't you think he wants to win every game every year? Oh, yeah. Yeah. Yeah. But I'm thinking that no other coats could ever do that. Well, he he came pretty close. He was undefeated and how to lead in the twelfth game of of a shot at three p he'd let it slip away. It's very difficult to do. I listen. I don't know. I Nick savings basic method methodology is not to think about anything other than what's right in front of him. So whether he would ever admit that it's unlikely I think Nick Sabin, if you I mean just think about if he wins this year. That's another undefeated season. He had one in two thousand and nine one less game. It's a seventh national championship. Right. We stay as mayor while. No, no, no. It doesn't tag it. It it. It breaks bears record. LSU but nail Nick Sabin is not equivocating over. Ooh, I only have five or I mean seven seven doesn't matter where you get them. That's right. That's right. It's one more than bear. All right. Well, you have good day. Okay. I'm thanking the call. But I really don't think Nick saving is going, man. I could be undefeated. I can be fifteen or no. He was fourteen to know in two thousand and nine is that was a pretty good is fifteen in no better than fourteen in from a percentage standpoint renting. No. It's Bama math. We'll take a short break.

And that. Be careful. You're the objective of the playoffs is to find the best team that's out there. And when you start getting down to places like six seven and eight on the list. I don't think you're anywhere near the best teams in the country. Also on that, you know, they they have heartburn over a couple SEC teams in there. If you looked at the ratings two three weeks ago and took the top teams it had Georgia Alabama LSU all in the playoffs at one time. It's true. Listen. It's it's a subjective conversation. But you're right. It should be the best. But everyone I it it usually is the best unless people want to come up with reasons why then shouldn't be like two offices to SEC schools. Yeah. More deserving deserving should never be used in this conversation. One man's opinion. Here. I think the best four teams the best man chip would have been to see Alabama play Ohio State and the other matchup would have been Clemson playing Georgia. I would agree with that. I could have lived without without Notre Dame in this fourteen playoff in an Oklahoma's. Well, I think but we just couldn't look past Ohio state's loss to Purdue. And we couldn't look past LSU LSU beating Georgia by double digits. Yeah. Then the last thing being from the north here with the Green Bay Packers without a head coach up here. There's a lot of noise about looking for Nick Sabin to come there. Your thoughts. Yeah. I mean, I think Nick savings agent probably gets a call from every NFL owner or in the cowboy excuse me in the Packers case someone someone who manages the team.

"Do I'm gonna ask you about a team and give me your impressions as they're doing today. LSU LSU boy, I'll tell you the thing I like about LSU, Tony is they're not fraudulent at all. They don't go out. And try to be who they are not in what they're not capable of being they play good defense. They play physical brand of football. They go out, and they emphasized the running game and they protect their quarterback who comparatively to some other guys in the league is probably limited a little bit physically. So I think they protect what they're good at. And what they know that they can do they understand they have some limitations in there. No fraudulent aspects to Ed ordrs football team, the university of Florida had bounced back after that loss to Missouri at home. Where do you think the Gators are right now, I'm sorry. You're breaking up a little bit. What team are we going with university of Florida university of Florida after that tough loss to Missouri. They bounce back. Whereas Dan Mullins group right now, I think as a team that's still searching mentally and emotionally to sort of figure out who they are. They have some talent they have guys watch their edge rushers attack the quarterback. What's Jordan scarlet when he gets in space watch the Michael p Ryan run the football, but you've had inconsistencies at quarterback and you've had inconsistencies with physical play in the middle of the defense and along the offensive line for the majority of the season. So still attempting to find out who they are as a team what kind of team they can be. I know it's late in the season still to be doing that. But sometimes with the coaching change when you have to mix and match maneuver, different pieces of your team. It takes a long time to sort of figure that out. Call a new I wanted to ask you about this Texas am against you. I'm trying to convince people guys UAB is a is a good football team. They're very well coached. Does you babe?

"No it actually goes back to Los Angeles coach Tracy is from out in California in LSU special teams coordinator who had been in the NFL for years had. Kind of put out feelers that they were looking for grad transfer. He put out some feelers to to scouts in in NFL scouts in in other assistant coaches and someone I guess name MRs aim, but he's he's a special teams coordinator believe in Iowa State and key is he he played at he played it USC, and he actually played under ORs Ron believe in the late nineties Pete Carroll era. And so there was that little connection there. He and he got he knew of code frac- from California told LSU LSU, you know, reached out the whatnot assumption. College code Frazier that division to school in Massachusetts in boom. You know, he ended up arriving arriving LSU within a few months of being contacted, and he was a grad transfer. So he plays immediately. Get one year of eligibility. And yet he's been incredible for him. I think he's missed two or three field goals. I don't know. Exactly. Number around twenty twenty two makes like that. I mean, it's been it's been pretty incredible LSU record made popular goals and game earlier this year. I think it was against a Mississippi State. I it's just been he's been incredible. I really have. All right. We'll stay on the topic of grad transfer is obviously a huge story was Joe Burroughs, arrival and performance thus far as they've won a lot of games. What is the what would you say is there is consensus about Joe borough season, thus far with you know, -mongst the people whose eyeballs are most trained on him coaches fans, anybody in general is there a general feeling of like he's not the most consistent guy, but he's definitely a timely guy. And he's ours. Is there any sense like that? I think would would you wanted in a quarterback is. Honestly, somebody that they've had in the past at crazy that sound they they want somebody who just managed the game. Well, doesn't make mistakes. They know they have some pretty good skill players around Joe, and they always have a solid running game. Even though that it return a big running back. So they just kinda needed that guy with with that. So call you know, moxy in that leadership Gill and in that ability to make plays with his feet a little bit in not turn the ball over in. Joe has checked all of those boxes Pacific ly-, the leadership kinda moxie box in his numbers aren't great in. They don't you know, LSU because 'cause this is so good. It's running game always so strong. They don't really need the numbers to be great. I think deeper into editors rights tenure here two three years from now. I think he would like a quarterback that can make a little more plays and have a little more passing game. But right now, this is. Eating them in. Joe hasn't made a lot of turnovers but more so he's really kinda won the team, and he's with his leadership, and and just to his his ability to be that gritty kind of player who in key situations make place. It's debts aren't great. But in key situations. He makes plays and he's got that kind of leadership ability and again across across the ball from him, the defensive show strong that he doesn't need to go out and be crazy. And you've got a great kicker that. Yeah. That that would they feel comfortable when they cross that thirty five yard line that they have least three point. So all that kinda helps him be the player that that he is. So you mentioned in two three years because borough will be back next year has another year eligiblity in two three years coach, oh and the offense of staff imagine or picture or have excuse me, a vision for what perhaps the quarterback of the future looks like for LS your the system the ski. Team of the future looks like for LSU. Are we in a one point oh of this offense with you know, the transition from from Canada Stevens bigger, and if so what is that grand vision? Does this offense look appreciably different in two or three years with time? Well, it's it's weird. Because when when Anna was wrong to over he preached having you know, a balanced offense with a passing threat. Ben hasn't had it if you're years he kinda one that you wanted more of a spread offense they are slowly slowly making their way toward that reds game..

It very closely in the next couple of days because I. Have an state and Pitt next weekend in Pittsburgh so first of all I'm glad they won right because of our game next week But obviously they got. All that, they can handle and ask for and more by very game Appalachian state team their quarterback. Played extremely well they did not back down and you know they went for the win with. The long field goal at. The end knowing it. Was gonna, probably be tough. To win and over overtime but. I'll tell you what I give I give. App state a lot of credit because they went in there they were not intimidated and they gave Penn State everything. They could handle yet the other messages big ten teams you might wanna stop scheduling Appalachian state for your openers on eleven years. To the day some some debuts yesterday Cuyler Murray at Oklahoma JT Daniels at? USC, rallied the troops in the second half from. A second half deficit and Trevor. Lawrence came on put some time with Kelly Bryant at Clemson Trevor Lawrence three touchdown passes five scoring drives Nettie engineered of. Those quarterbacks tied who, made their debuts which do you think had the better debut You know it's it's hard to say I heard you talking to coach Brown about Dwayne Haskins he's another guy he made. His debut, as a starter you know and and was spectacular as was to Tunga by law Loa. In his first time as a starter in You know I gotta throw a couple of other names in, there your in all those guys, were impressive, but I look at the competition too I think what Jarret stidham did yesterday against a very good Washington, defense in, gutting out that twenty one to sixteen win twenty. Six to thirty six to seventy three and a touchdown and then will Greer against a you know a pretty lively athletic Tennessee defense put on a performance that Heisman guys do and. Heisman hopefuls do twenty-five thirty. Four four hundred and twenty nine yards and five touchdowns so I I, really tip my hat to those two guys even though were established starters because of the caliber of team they were. Playing and this is the beauty of college football we don't have a preseason so when all of these guys step on the field in week. One we, haven't seen them for a. Quarter or two quarters like you do in the NFL. And I think. You're right a lot of it is, coming into, this year at college football early on your question marks Todd Blackledge calling the game tonight on ABC television With Sean McDonough return of Sean to college football LSU in Miami entitled leads perfectly into our game because. Again what are the question marks coming in is LSU's quarterback situation half they finally found one in Joe, borough I think we'll answer that question Tonight. I don't think we know, the answer here's Joe Burrows appeared appeared in ten games he's got very, nice statistics never started a game and obviously the bottom line is he couldn't beat out Dwayne Haskins that's why he was looking for a new home he, found one at LSU and so, he's hoping to have a great show tonight at ordure odd and Steve ends winger are. Hoping for him? To have, a great showing and what a better stage your opportunity for him against a very fast and talented Miami defense on the other side you've got the Miami hurricanes. Last year offensively Melik Rhodesia and then just figure. It out has that changed you know, I don't know that it's changed a whole lot. Because the reason so much fell on his. Shoulders last year is because they don't have a dominant offensive line I think Travis homers a very good running back I think he's a high quality player but they didn't have a dominant line last year I think they'll be. Better upfront, this year I still don't know that they would be a, dominant group and and this defense they are. Going to face tonight and LSU I think will be the. Best defense they will face all season and. Less they get to the. ACC championship game again. And would face off with Clemson I think one good thing for. Me Rozier is that he gets them on Richard's. Back healthy he was only, healthy for one game last year he's the most dynamic player on the, Miami offense and him being healthy is is really good news for a quarterback eight tied at the end of the first quarter what indicator are you gonna, be looking at where you may, have a have the temperature of how this game is going to go I think which. Offensive line can? Block because, these two defensive fronts are both really active really fast the front sevens bolt defensive coordinators Manny Diaz for Miami Dave Aranda for LSU they liked to get creative. And how they bring pressure in past situations so. A lot is going to be determined, early by which offensive line can keep their quarterback. Upright keep the cleanest pocket and also established. A little bit of a run game so I think it comes down to which one of those big groups up front has Has the best show of it early in the ball game is Todd Blackledge calling, the game. On ABC television tonight with Sean, McDonough and Holly Rowe, LSU and Miami coming. Up next kickoff in this game the hurricanes offense powered by Melik Rozier. On defense you've got the turnover chain for the LSU Tigers they've always had defense they've always had, running backs do they actually have a quarterback we begin to answer that question. Coming up next tech.
