Is Tutu Atwell Too Small to Succeed in the NFL? - burst 08
"Now to god. The i know that you are extremely enthusiastic about Terrence marshall going to the panthers. Twenty seven th pick of the second round just a few picks after escorts from lsu tears marshall to the panthers. What are your thoughts on this cal. I'll pick it a fantastic lang spot. you know. I think i was super high on marshall. Probably highest of just about anybody in the industry All all college season. And all you know predrag and my my enthusiasm is not where one bit. I love the landing spot where some people might be turned off on it You know I know that he is not maybe going to be immediately. Be the number. One with robby anderson and with dj more there. But i think he's going to have a clear role from day one because if you look at his body type and how profiles ios not just a big bodied receiver he also is a a burner to i mean he is true burner and You know high jump. High catch radius any any provides the wide receivers did not do as your which was give a teddy bridgewater. Now is going to be darnold. But they didn't have anybody to score in the red zone. You know everything. They they scored was from like you know deeper out or the the running backs the mike davis or you know. But they really didn't have anybody in the red zone that they could produce. So i think marshall steps in right away and could be. I bet he has a real legitimate chance at leading all rookies in in receiving touchdowns ex year. So you know it's somebody that i like. As far as a talent. I think he can easier to age. Well in that offense because He is going back with his former college coach. Now the head coach of the of the panthers. So i think that this guy drafted him whereas he might have fallen a little bit in. Nfl draft because there was a little bit uncertainty right before the draft about some of his medical history. I don't think coach takes them at high if he has any type about about the about his foot injury so i think that this is going to be the guy that's going to be all help you. Now you're gonna have some flashes. He's going to be probably inconsistent. Probably a lot like a like. I kind of value him a lot. Like the where i had claypool asher whereas i kind of knew that there was going to be a lot of competition for targets but i knew that there was gonna be a lot of upset especially if somebody gets hurt And i just think that there's gonna be a lotta touchdown and he's a big guy when people start really understanding how much of a freak athlete is. Don't be surprised if this guy is being compared as maybe even number one wide receiver in this class next year. That's that's how upside. i see you know. I do think chases a better prospect but you know they were on the same team and You know even on the team with jefferson and chase He marshall was extremely valuable piece of their natural shape team. I mean he. I think he had like fourteen touchdowns or something you know. And he had costa twenty yard per catch average on the team. I mean he he really is a tremendous player and then when those two guys left last year you know he played over about a. I don't know about six or seven seven games. you opted out. And he averaged one hundred and fifteen dollars. You're talking about more leading devante smith. It was really. I believe tears marshall who bleeding the country in yards per game you know before he opted out and he also was averaging close to two touchdowns a game you know and this same competition is all those. Stc guy so. I just liked body. I can't i hate to sound like a broken record. But i really do like big receivers. It's not the smaller wide. Receivers can't thrive in that bayer wide receivers don't bust. I just think that when you historically look at all the body types of players that are generally over six foot in there like over two hundred pounds to twenty six. I'd say two to twenty is about the average. You know we get the top hand wide receiver fantasy for fancy standpoint every year. That's probably about the average. So i like my guys. That profile big catch raises. So i just feel like they're more consistent with a when when you get that's capable of being a possession receiver getting first downs and touchdowns. I i like their consistency versus having a field stretcher. We might put up forty points in a game lake. You kyle i am. I am feeling good about carrots. Marshall and about what he's gonna do in his nfl career. The only hold back that. I have with taras marshall and again this could be viewed as a positive based on what i'm going to say in a second is so terrorist marshall hops into offense with dj more lobbying said in christian. Mccaffrey already there. So you're already looking at the possibility of being the fourth target there in carolina which i deal and add that to the fact that sam darnold who i think everyone considers at this point to be in the bottom. Half of the starting quarterbacks is throwing the ball to terrence. Marshall this is this is clearly not ideal so short term. There are some concerns. I do think like you that he's going to be great in the red zone. Short term era. You're gotta be thinking while sam. Donna already has connected to robinson clearly. The carolina organization views. Dj moore's or number receiver cj. Metcalf a christian mccaffrey a year a year ago. He broke the record for the most receptions for running back in a single season ever. She has to view him almost as a receiver. At this point with the matt of receptions which is insane that he's getting one hundred receptions i think it was a year or two ago so that that's not ideal but dynasty football dicey football so not necessarily great redraft person. In my opinion but dynasty football is about the long game and the long game. I see in the long game i see turns marshall absolutely thriving because we don't know a five we anderson's gonna be in carolina long-term. We don't know what the scenario is going to be with. Sam darnold or with christian mccaffrey. Dj more but we know the is one of the best receivers in this class in. He is talented enough will were at some point career. He will get an opportunity probably sooner rather than later if not this year to really showcase what he can do and he has the talent to be a number one receiver. I love his size. I loved as a big bodied receiver. That's a great fan a red zone. There are a lot of good things about terrence marshall and so what i was saying earlier is the fact that not going to be good in the short term is almost a positive here for you as a dynasty are because now we're seeing him fall to the third fourth fifth round pick of the second round which is lower than it should be gone if anything. This guy should be going at the back half of the first half so now because the term concern that comes with marshall. Now you're gonna be able to go up there and gets terrorist marshall and you're not gonna have to reach from either he's probably just gonna fall right in your laps and you're gonna walk is one of the biggest winners in your dynasty graphs. Because here's a guy that has a potential to be a top five receiver in this

Philadelphia Eagles Sign Super Bowl 47 MVP Joe Flacco
"Big news coming out of philly. Yesterday joe flacco agreeing to a contract with the eagles. It's a one year deal. Three and a half million dollars. Guaranteed the opportunity to win. Four million more in incentives. Now what does this mean. As far as the eagles and their draft plans remember. They only have one quarterback on the roster until this and that's jalen hurts and they have the six pick in the draft and as you see mel kiper junior and his latest mock has been taking the superstar receiver tamar chase from lsu which would be awfully knife or any quarterback that they have there but so does this mean mel again. It is not your expectation mel with us field. Yates as well here today. It does this mean and again. You're you're mock has them taking chase anyway but the signing flacco does that in your view. Close the door on any possibility that they draft a quarterback at number six. I think they would even going in before flacco. You think about. Joe flacco wise ian eagle thinking about the baltimore raven connection with the philadelphia eagles. Joe douglas and joe flacco who drafted where the want super bowl with the baltimore ravens. So there's that always that connection you can always go to. Guys are picked up later in their career. So for joe. Douglas bringing in a joe flacco you think about what he was doing with the jets in terms of the situation there. And then you've got the philadelphia eagles their same type of thing that raven connections. So i think when you look backing up jalen hurts right now. I don't think he's a threat. I think jalen that guy get jomar chase and go four with him and help jalen hurts and then reassess after the year's over that's what they will do that influence with the raven organization in philadelphia as a factor. I think it's a factor throughout the green and there always is joe. Flacco is a good backup came in the league. Same your matt ryan did and that ryan slow playing great football of course super bowl but Joe flacco did. But i think it's a good situation to have joe flacco there behind. The jalen hurts. Jalen hurts gets hurt. Your season's not over joke and still play. But i think this is jalen team right now. I thought it was carson wentz's team that didn't work out. But i think if you get your march help jalen hurts and then you make your decision air to this year whether in the twenty twenty two draft you have to think about drafting. A young quarterback failed. Same question to you. Does this mean in your mind that the eagles are out of the quarterback market at six. It does not greedy in. Here's a simple reason. Why i agree with everything else that i'm going to double back to that in just a moment. I just have long believed that if you are convinced. A player can be a franchise quarterback that if he's available at six. You have to at least consider it. If you're philadelphia. Now that being said all the indications this offseason from the previous reporting from more about the eagles plan to build around jalen hurts this year plus the signing of joe flacco which at least gives them a veteran option at the very least relatively modest priced by the way three point five million dollars. There are so many signs at the plan. This year is to find ways to make jalen hurts better so i still believe that ultimately the eagles are gonna be in prime position to land one of the best pass catchers in this year's draft a quarterback should not be entirely ruled out. And that's just me having seen the league long enough to know that sometimes teams do things the catch us by surprise even if they should not have caught us by surprise

Kansas splits with athletic director Jeff Long two days after parting ways with Les Miles
"Get you updated on what is happening in lawrence kansas. Where less mild was let go the other day and then this afternoon the man who hired him and presumably let him go has also been shown. The door crisslow joining us on that story and others. Chris thanks for the time. Always good to have you on and give us the latest. How did how did how did this happen. So quickly with jeff long. It's great to be with you. Always i I really felt like we heard the news about less miles that this was just it was going to happen with jeff law and just did not senior way. He would survive. I think what happened in a lot of donors a kansas at the end of the day. The president a chance to learn. Douglas giradi heard from several influential donors that they just did not want to be the guy to hire the next head football coach and i think when you look back sort of having all the down with less weight ended there that The more that they thought about it. And i think jeff athletics look long enough to know he said in a statement. Today was going to be a huge distraction more hung around and and they wanna make a clean break. Bring somebody else in to hire the knicks head football coach. Oh by the way they got issues the basketball program. Well they certainly do. And i saw her. Danny manning announced that he was a contender for the ad job. But as we. I don't know whether tennessee is the template but you do need an athletic director to get in there. Fairly quickly don't you. Yeah you don't the what's your proverbial tail wagging the dog. So yeah you gotta bring somebody else somebody. And it's going to be the ad someone that's that's gonna be the football coaches boss. I tell you name to keep in mind. Travis goff and northwestern we went to kansas undergrad. There how highly respected and sort of in the world. And he's a guy that you're going to hear a lot of push for from donors from influential people there k you to bring in to come in higher this the next head football coach. I think a guy will be certainly equipped to deal with. What's going to come their way on the basketball front as well talking to crisslow chris. Let me just take a step back and go back in time time to lsu and unless miles and after this information dumped the other day and learning much more about what happened down there and what didn't happen. I'm curious as a reporter who has covered so many scandals in so many so many big stories in college football just your your takeaway from from the progression of that program with with joe alita and less miles to to really where it is now and where does it go to try to clean up a rather tattered reputation. Yeah you think back to two thousand eleven ten years ago paul. Lsu's on top of the world now. Granted they lost alabama national championship. But that was a great football team In in a team that was is elite as it gets and now here. We are ten years later and they won the championship last year. But a lot of things off the field. A lot of things going on you know you. You always felt like there at the end of his tenured. Lsu that there was a lot of people. They're out to get him. When i say out to get him that wanted to move on. I just felt like they could do better. But as you know you know the sec. As well as anybody yeses. He thinks they can do better. Except for maybe in tuscaloosa And i think the some of the political forces around lsu sorta helpless. We're on his side to leave. Certainly it and four games the sixteen season they got it in. You heard jimbo. Fisher's name all sorts of aim. Tom herman the end up with a lot of people felt like that was never going to work with all the old winter national championship last year and really a great job assembling people going out and getting staff around in but now here we are off the field with this complete invested in investigation. As some of the way things have been handled with sexual assault domestic incidents going back before was head coach So you're right. There's there's a lot on their at lsu Just like kansas. You've got issues with the basketball team as well So it's It's a mess right now. We'll see where it all
Kansas Coach Les Miles Out Over Behavior With Women While at LSU
"And hello and welcome back. We continue to talk about the situation in kansas Formerly lsu were less. Mild is under employed in case. You missed it earlier. The headlines of course have been screaming since last night that les miles in kansas have mutually parted ways. That's a rather benevolent way of putting less were shown the door. He had a disastrous. Run there but it was what happened. In two thousand thirteen at lsu that ultimately got him fired. Reuss feldman has covered less miles for a very long time in bruce. Thanks so much for the time shafran we want to talk to you about including your pizza just hit about the the nfl mock draft. But let's start with less miles not a surprise. But what do you think Finally pushed kansas over the edge and And did away with less after what has been coming out for days if not weeks from baton rouge untenable this the idea. Kansas jeff long's the ad there obviously sec. Fans will remember from his time at arkansas. It's just been an abysmal run. And the fact that has searched process get less miles there in the first place was kind of a jolt in kind of a head scratcher but now after what had come out from Over the weekend. And friday from the lsu part of this. I don't know how in twenty twenty one kansas could say. Oh yeah we're okay with that just even if you look at the wording on how jeff long explained the move last night it was just like we got to win more games. It was like wait a minute. There were some really Disgraceful actions that are alleged against less miles from his time at lsu. And i don't know how they could look the other way with a straight face and say okay this a guy who the lsu administration had clearly put some you know unique situations around him and stipulations in dealing with people and some of those allegations are so troubling and so disturbing. I really think they had no choice but to move on. And the wording parted ways whatever they just had to make a change and get him out of there. And i'm suspect at some point in the nazi just future an after avenue. Ad as well. Yeah that was. Obviously a lot of people are going now and you know jeff. Long didn't exactly distinguish himself at arkansas. Were shown the door there and surprisingly or maybe not. Surprisingly the program has been on fire under hunter year. Check but i mean how can you. How can you possibly keep jeff long on the job after mean and football's only part of the problem. The basketball program has been under fire for years. Exactly i mean there's issues with the ncaa and the basketball program ac- basketball is a bigger deal there than football. But i think in this. It's so many issues. That are layered together. And i think it's the tone-deaf aspect Jeff lungs long relationship with last miles The allegations in the things in those investigations about less. They are really disturbing. Act act especially as they relate to student workers there. I think it's really troubling and the fact that k. You in jeff. Along the way it was explained. Even if you look back i think over the weekend. Less miles attorney gave us gave a statement that i think makes may kansas look quite honestly even worse that they kind of knew about it and that they were okay with it was almost like well because other people were alarmed by now that it was that it was something that was like shouldn't have happened just because of the perception on it i just think it all of it is made that tenure. Look so sketchy. And i just don't know how your kansas how you don't kind of rip the band aid off at this point and say hey we gotta make a different a different move here. I just think right now you look at it yes the. Ncaa extended the dead period much longer. So they don't really have to rush in through this coaching search process. But who's going to be making the new head football coach higher in this. I mean this is a lot of stuff for the kansas administration to sort out as they move on not just from last miles but i think as they move in a different direction for. Who's in charge of the parliament.

"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.

That have it made all sorts of interesting advancements both technologically and just in terms of the viewing experience. Yeah I enjoyed it. I really did like no one has said a word to me. Dan Likes to think he has a street. cred and he'll he'll don't though Hashtag sell out. Yeah Yeah Yeah. Well that person's not listening and we'll talk about the shot that you unfairly only took it. Mike Greenberg Texter. Oh but either way. Dan Likes to do this thing where he plays to a certain audience. Some sort of High Falutin sports fan. That doesn't exist. Ah I saw the numbers to the XFL they were watching in droves. Dano how do you feel about my golic's juniors description of the XFL it's not the NFL but it's better than college. He calls a college. Plus I dig IT I. I think it's better. It's better than most college football games. Look Dan thinks college football every week. LSU Auburn which honestly in one conference it is more Damn Cobra we're paying XFL players all right. Can you just be happy justice here but let me present you with this scenario. Okay The New York team. What's her name? The Kevin Gilbride New York Guardian. That's your cardio. They're one and now they have. Yeah that's should. Should there be their name. They are the New York football giants. Anytime you refer to the XFL team from New York. It's Kevin Gilbride New York aurea all right so they are one in. Oh they play play a one and a team this week defenders now. They're both co favorites so when the XFL championship amazing it's a must win. Game this is ABC. Diana receives going infiltrate the broadcast. It's the biggest game and XFL history. But here's the question until until roughnecks battle hawks. Oh boy but we agreed yesterday. We'd I'd like the winner for this league to play the national champion in college. So that would be. LSU would take LSU out of the equation because they need to do with the quarterback. If if Matt mcglone. We're going up against Trevor Lawrence and Clemson. Who would you have? More faith in that McGowan is forgotten more football than trevor longer. I wanted to ask the guys. I asked the guys for this a couple of days ago and they were not helpful because I did. I do need to know what the rules those are around here because of how we are corporate sponsors simple you can have to forward passes as long as you're basing this thing programming you understand that if got the lowest rated game I think God over two million viewers bigger than the Super Bowl. That Out that's not true but it out rated the NBA doubleheader Dan if if if the XFL can merely maintain half of of the audience that it got for its debut. You understand that this is in line for a major television deal Mike. What I'm telling you right now is I want an answer to the question Russian next segment of whether or not the best? XFL team would have beaten Joe Boroughs Lsu team. I want an answer from somebody a We did this with steak. Buddy seven eight six four five six four eight three seventy the telephone rain just everybody. I want someone to call Lynn with some expertise that can answer the question. Anybody anybody we can find or can call in they can answer the question whether or not Lsu Lsu would have beaten the best x one week of sample size but sure all right.

"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.

"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.

"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. Sometimes these things get overrated. You know in terms. I mean Clemson's going to get their fair should share tickets and they've got they got a fan base that travels big time and they won it last year but it it.

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. More of your phone calls at eight five five two four two seven two eight five listening to the Paul finebaum show podcast. Okay. We're back here on the program. And so glad you are with us. Al is up next in Illinois. How are you? I'm doing good. How are you Paul? Why? Well, thank you. All right comment on the playoff for people talk about expanding the playoff to six eighteenth. 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.
